It is claimed that by this method of manufacture a truss is provided which will be more comfortable than the one in ordinary use, and better able to adapt tself to the various movements of the oody, especially if those are of a sudden character. The truss is fitted with a hip-joint regulator, by means of which the 'iressui'o is increased or diminished as required, and with a soft shell pad perforated for ventilaticn.

i ——— GLAMORGAN COUNTY COUNCIL. Annual Meeting at Pontypridd. The annual statutory meeting of the Glamor- gan County Council was held on Thursday at the Lesser Town Hall, Pontypridd, under the presidency of Mr. J. Blandy Jenkins, J.P. There was a fair attendance of members. Pending the election of officers, the chair was occupied by the Rev. Aaron Davies.—Mr. Pendarvss Vivian moved the re-election of Mr. Blandy Jenkins as chairman of the Council for next year, and Mr. Llewellyn Davies seconded. —Mr. Richard Morris protested against re- election, .but the motion, when put, was carried with unanimity.—Mr. Blandy Jenkins then took the chair, and made a suitable response. —Alderman Walter H. Morgan, of Pontypridd, was re-elected vice-chairman of the Council without opposition. The report of the Technical Instruction Com- mittee was submitted, and Mr. D. Davies pro- posed as an amendment the elimination of clause 17, in which the committee recommended that the salary of Mr. Walter Hogg, the organ- ising agent, be increased by £ 50 per annum. Mr. R. Morris, who posed as an economist on the Council and also in the Rhondda (laughter) —was very anxious to push the matter through in committee.—Mr. David Morgan seconded, and protested against this mode of doing busi- ness it was not straightforward.—Mr. Richard Morris supported the committee's recommenda- tion.—The Rev. Aaron Davies endorsed the last speaker's remarks, and pointed out that they were continually increasing Mr. Hogg's duties ofoing to his efticiency.Ou a division the Chairman declared the amendment defeated, but Mr. David Davies demanded that the names be taken, and this was done. Forty-six voted for the committee's recommendation, and 22 for the amendment, which was therefore lost. Mr. William Jones, of Mountain Ash, referred to the decision of the Roads and Bridges Committee not to contribute towards the new road between Mountain Ash and Navigation, and complained that the district was being harshly dealt with. He moved that the words in the committee's report, that this question should not be reconsidered until a junction has been made with the Cardiff-road," be eliminated, and this was agreed to. —It was agreed to instruct the committee to proceed with the erection of the new bridge at Cefn, provided the county of Brecou's share be paid to the credit of Glamorganshire and that the new bridge be maintained at the cost of the two counties equally. Mr. D. Prosser, Treharris, was elected a member of the Roads and Bridges Committee instead of the late Major Bell. The name of Mr. H. W. Martin was added to the Joint Committee of Glamorgan and Monmouth upon the pollution of the river Rumney. Mr. John Evans, Iscoed, was appointed a member of the new county offices committee. Mr. D. Davies, of Merthyr, who was received with cheers, moved a resolution protesting against giving further State aid to voluntary schools, and declaring that the ratepayers should be represented on the governing bodies of the voluntary schools now receiving State aid. The resolution included also a provision that copies of it be sent to the leaders of politi- cal parties, including Mr. John Dillon, chair- man of the Irish Parliamentary Party (laughter). Wales, had, said the speaker, assisted Ireland, and they looked now to the Irish members to assist them at this juncture. —Alderman R. Lewis seconded.—Alderman W. H. Morgan was surprised that the mover of the resolution should have forgotten his own coun- try, and moved as an amendment that Sir George Osborne Morgan, Bart., the chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Party, be added (hear, hear).—Alderman D. Davies accepted the amendment, and the motion was then carried.
ANOTHER SMALL-POX CASE AT DOWLAIS. An Important Point. At Saturday's meeting of the Board of Guardians a letter was read from Dr. Cresswcll reporting another small-pox case at Dowlais. The patient was a girl named Mary Jones, 18 years of age, who was in service at Caracea Farm. She had been removed to Pant Hos- pital. No connection could he traced between this and the other cases. There were live patients now at the Hospital, all progressing favourably.—Mr. H. W. Martin mentioned an important point in connection with this case. All the guardians did not perhaps know that Caracea Farm lay in close contiguity to the Pant Hospital. The Clerk said he also intended calling attention to the same thing.— The subject then dropped.

THE MERTHYR GUARDIANS AND THEIR RELIEVING OFFICERS. 111-- Retired—Absconded. At their Saturday meeting the Merthyr Guardians' time was considerably occupied by their relieving officers. One officer had been ill, another had retired, and a third had absconded. All came in for a sharc of atten- tion. First of all, there was Mr. Jones, the officer for the Gelligaer district. Mr. Jones has been laid up with illness, though he has now happily recovered. During his illness, his son had been asked to undertake duty in his stead.—Mr. Matthew Truran now proposed that the Board grant the son a sum of money for the work lie had performed.—Mr. T. Harries seconded. — Mr. Augustus Davies asked if the father had received his usual salary during the time he was ill.-A reply in the affirmative was given. —Mr. D. Davies was of opinion that the SOli had no claim to any payment, as he was simply doing his father's work. lie had no ill-will against Mr. Jones or the son, but the Board should be careful not to establish a dangerous precedent. Mr. Truran should give notice of motion.—Other Guardians favoured the post- ponement of the question, and Mr. Truran eventually withdrew his proposal, and gave notice that he would bring it on next Saturday, when, in all probability, a battle-royal may be expected. There will also be a battle over another ques- tion. Mr. Davies, as our readers are aware, has retired from the relieving officership for the Aberdare district. Certain events with which our readers are familiar have rendered it necessary for Mr. David, very much against his personal inclination, to remain in harness for a time after his retirement, and he was asked on Saturday to keep on for another week.- Mr. David Davies desired to know whether the Board had agreed to grant Mr. David a salary for this woik in addition to the pension paid him by the Board. The Clerk replied in the anirmative. Later on, Mr. J. Edwards, the Labour member for Treharris, gave notiee that next Saturday he would move that the resolu- tion granting Mr. David a salary as well as a pension be rescinded. Finally, there was Mr. W. Williams, the officer who had made himself very scarce indeed at Aberdare. Mr. D. Davies was anxious about that gentleman also, and asked the clerk if lie knew where he was. -The Clerk said lie did not. Superintendent Thorney had informed him that what had appeared in the press was probably correct. That is to say, Williams had sailed for South Africa, and a Dowlais man had spotted him. But the sly rogue had disembarked at Madeira, sailing thence on another boat, very appropriately named the" Tartar," for South Africa. The police authorities there had been communicated with, and they would do their level best to lay hands on the absconded one. That was all the information he had to lay before the Board. --The Rev. Aaron Davies chimed in with a joke about there being two tartars. "The Clerk We have caught a tartar, anyhow.—Mr. J. Lloyd dissented, and said they had unfortunately not caught their tartar. The "Tartar" had carried their tartar away, and they would never see him any more.—It might have been suggested that the Tartar had taken the tartar to Tartary, but it wasn't. SIK,— In your report of the Guardians' meet- ing it Merthyr, on the 7th instant, I failed to find any remark of what I consider a waste of the ratepayers' money. I refer to the report brought before the Board from the Assessment Committee and adopted, in which it was stated that Mr. William David, the late relieving officer for the Aberdare district, would be granted his late salary in full in addition to his superannuation, and also 5 per cent. commission on all collections, which will amount to over 250 for his temporary services owing to the absconding of William Williams. I consider that the handsome sum of JE80 per annum superannuation, allowed Mr. David by the Board, ample remuneration for the few months' temporary services rendered by him to the rateyayeys, many of whom are at the present time in dire poverty. I am astonished at the laxity displayed by our various guardians in being so free in parting with the public money. If I am not under a wrong impression, I believe it was quite optional on the part of the Guardians whether they allowed Mr. David any superannua- tion at all, aud I think he ought to have given the ratepayers his temporary services gratuitous- ly, seeing how well lie had been treated. I well remember the debate at the Guardians meeting of the 13th of J uly of last year, and reported in the press, from which I quote the follow ing Mr. D. Davies, Merthyr I simply wanted to ask the clerk to look up the minute referred to. Subsequently the clerk referred to the minute book, and said that some years ago a resolution was passed when salaries of the relieving offiers were raised to the effect that none of the officers were to expect a superannuation grant." Extraordinary precautions are taken to enquire into the antereedents of a poor old workman when he applies for parish relief, and who probably may have worked hard all his life but in the case of Mr. David extra remuneration of over £ 30, in addition to his superannuation was voted by the Board without any ceremony, I I have reason to believe that a notice of motion was given last Saturday to rescind the resolution I complained of.—-Yours.
