Tuberculous Cows. To the Editor of the Weekly News. Sir,—In view of the serious report of our Medical Officer in yesterday's Urban Dis- trict Council meeting, I think that the views of our trade should be made public in refer- ence to this important question of protect- ing the public from both milk and meat from cattle affected with this disease First, I should like to point out the very unfair position of our trade in reference to this matter. If a butcher exposes for sale a carcase affected witn tuberculosis, he is fined and sometimes sent to prison for the offence, although he has no knowledge be- fore slaughtering that the beast was affected. Also the purchase money is gone and his trade spoiled, which is his living. Hence his agitation for a warrant from the farmei that the beasts bought are fit for the pur- pose intended, namely, for the food of man. This is very unfair for a respectable I trade and not satisfactory for the public. I think the time has come when all milking "ows should go under the tuberculin tests, and if found unsound should be destroyed, and the farmer compensated out of Imperial fund. They do now compensate the farmer in cases of infectious disease to protect the herds, but so far not to protect human lives. As I believe that tuberculosis is transmittable from the bovine to the human it is very important that our milk and meat supply should be sound and healthy. If it is the intention of the committee which has the national memorial to our late King in hand to build sanatorium's, they will be oj, no till we get this great question satisfactorily settled. As to the doctor's report, I understand on inquiry that one of these cows mentioned was sold to a cattle dealer and taken out of the district, and the other is going to be fattened for the butcher, and yet our Medical Officer has no power to get the same destroyed; but, as the doctor said the other day, he is going to watch the same being sold to some unfortu-nate butcher, and I suppose if he ran will make him a criminal and spoil his livelihood. I ask you, sir, do you consider this justice to an honourable trade ? I shall leave the public to decide.—Faithfully yours, T. R. DAVIES. President N.W. Meat Traders' Association. Windsor House, Colwyn Bay.

Conway Shopland. AN INTERESTING TOUR OF INSPECTION. Conway's preparation for Christmas are as usual worthy of the town and the season. On all hands are to be seen evidences of enterprise, and it is a real pleasure to pay a visit of inspection to the many and var- ious shops. The butchers of the town will have a capital display of Christmas fat stock, in- cluding many prize winners. Mr. Joseph T. Jones, Eagles Buildings, has made extensive purchases in all the stock sales in the neighbourhood, and one of his beasts is a first prize winner at Bod- organ sale. For Christmas week he will slaughter twelve fat bullocks, all bred and fed by well known farmers, and two fart heifers fed by Lord Penrhyn. The wethers are from the farms of those well known prize-winners, Messrs. Elias Davies, farm- yard, and John Williams, Bwlch Mawr. There will also be a plentiful supply of lamb of the finest quality. Porks and suckling pigs will also make a feature of the show, and there will be an unlimited supply of geese, turkeys, ducks, &c., all from the best breeders. Messrs. Jones Bros., High-street, also promise a very extensive show of some of the finest meat obtainable. They will in addition slaughter a dozen fat beasts fed by such welj known breeders as Lady McLaren, Mr. Wm. Davies, Baclaw, and others. The wethers, 40 in number, will be of the finest quality, and Messrs. Jones are making a speciality of twenty of the choicest yearling lambs. All the above are bred locally. Pigs will also find a prominent place in the exhibi- tion, as well as a plentiful supply of geese, turkeys, ducks, &c. Again Mr. David Owen, Bangor-road, will have an exhibition equal to any of fat heifers and bullocks fed by well known farmers. Mr. Owen has secured some of the finest wethers and lambs, and there will be a large stock from his own farm at Rhoa Mill, Conway. Porkers and suckling pigs will be plentiful, and there will be a varied assortment of poultry from all the best breeders. The above three shops will be well worthy of a visit during the next week. Each of them is exceedingly well lighted, and each show is bound to be admired. Mr. J. E. Conway Jones's establishment is replete with a splendid show of motor liveries, the celebrated Dexter Quorn storm coats, the new fleece overcoatings, Irish, Scotch, and Welsh tweed suitings, and the famous Pesco underwear.

There is an abundant supply of all the latest in dress shirts, silk neckerchiefs, collars, ties, gloves, &c. Mr. D. Wynne Roberts, draper, is well supplied with seasonable goods, and if this weather continues there ought to be a run on his show of waterproofs. Mrs. Evans, London House, and Mr. Davies, Manchester House, drapers next door to each other in Lancaster-square, have an excellent stock of Christmas goods, as well as useful presents. Messrs. Jones and Son, Melbourne House, make a fine show of Christmas goods, several of the articles being very suitable for Christmas presents. Mr. John Roberts, Emu Restaurant, has a well stocked shop of seasonable delicacies, and Christmas visitors will do well to try his catering. Miss E. Thomas, High-street, makes a speciality of her home made Christmas cakes, and she is to be heartily congratu- Lated upon the excellent taste shown. Groceries of every description are in stock, and the confectionery side of the shop is never wanting. One of her Christmas cakes makes a beautiful present. Mr. Fred Jones, the Grosvenor Restaurant, has a varied assortment of Xmas cakes in rich Sultana, plum and Madeira. Iced and ornamented cakes are made to order. The show of chocolates in fancy boxes is a very choice one. They have also bread and confectionery fresh daily. As a caterer, Mr. Fred Jones is well known in the neigh- bourhood. Mr. Joseph Hooson, the French and Italian Warehouseman, has made excellent provision for all classes of customers during 1 the festive season. He has a large assort- ment of dessert raisins and almonds, figs, dates, oranges, chrystallis.ed fruits, iced cakes, Tom Smith's crackers, &c. He is also making a fine show of Absolom's Pure China tea, for which his establishment has gained a high reputation. For those with sweet teeth, Mr. Hooson has also made ex- cellent provision with huge chocolate boxes, and sweets of every description. In the grocery line anything wanted can be secured at this establishment. As usual, Messrs. E. B. Jones and Co. have a well stocked establishment in pre- paration for the Christmas festivities. This year they are making a special florin Christ- mas parcel, which will be a great boon to many buyers, considering that the price of fruit is increasing. The bumper parcel, as it is termed, contains a varied assortment of articles, which are being sold from the loth December to Christmas Eve only. They have also delicious teas in handsome canisters and boxes, one of which will be a Royal casket for the Coronation year. Oranges, apples, &c., are plentiful here, and the display of bacon and Cheshire cheese is all that can be desired. The shop is replete with all grocery requirements of the best kind. Mr. E. James, grocer, is a well known caterer for the public. His shop is re- plemished with all the Christmas goods available. Messrs. Dumphy, Ltd., have one of the best shops in town for making a display, and Mr. Ricketts, the manager, has excelled all previous efforts.

Thomas, the well known grocers, are well provided for the rush of customers during the Christmas season. They have stocked some of the finest pro- visions available, and their home-made bread is noted. Cheese, bacon and Christ. mas fruits are a speciality. At the Mart, in Uppergate-street, there is a plentiful supply of Christmas provisions, which should prove attractive to all customers. Mr. Thomas Abram, poulterer, is well provided for the Christmas demand for poultry. Mr. W. Hughes, chemist, is making a special show of perfumes suitable for Xmas presents. Other suitable presents include cameras, and the famous Gillette safety razor. All who wish to keep well for the holidays should first of all arm themselves with Mr. Hughes' famous tonics. To every one who calls at the shop Mr. Hughes presents a very interesting calendar in book form, which is specially interesting to Con- way, because it includes a picture of the famous grave in the Parish Church immor- talised by Woodsworth's We are seven." There is also an excellent photo of the Prince of Wales, whose coming investiture at Carnarvon will be of special interest. Miss Thomas, High-street, has provided herself with a large assortment of wearing apparel suitable for ladies during the winter time. The golf jersey is a speciality of one window, and the other is devoted to millin. ery, in which she excels Miss Hughes, the Beehive, has a well arranged shop of fancy goods, and during these dark nights it would be well if the local ladies paid her a visit and purchased some of the numerous articles which she has r--My to be worked at home. Mr. D. G. Walker, tobacconist, displays every kind of tobacco on the market. He ha- also a varied assortment of the best make of pipes, pouches, walking sticks, &e. Messrs. R. E.

They have the latest designs in private greeting cards, for which orders should be booked as early as possible The leather goods are all that could be desared, and a large variety of photo frames are on view. A capital Christmas present would be a British-made fountain pen, the price of which is within the. reach of all, and these establishments can well be termed The Pen Hospital," where the pens can be repaired at nominal fees. Children's annuals, which are so keenly sought after by the youmg folk, are in abundance, and there is a plentiful sup- ply of toy books, which go such a long way to make the young generation happy at this time of the year. A game of cards is a pleasant pastime, and here some of the finest playing cards on the market can be obtained. Fancy calendars and diaries form a great feature of the show in Rosehill- street, where also there is a choice selec- tion of Christmas and New Year cards. The shops are brimful of useful novelties and presents, and the proprietors solicit the insipection of the public. Mr. J.

Rhyl Bankrupt's Application. Before His Honour Judge Moss, at the Bangor County Court, on Monday, Robert Flint, formerly licensee of the lorne Hotel, Hhyl, applied for his discharge in bank- ruptcy. The applicant became banrupt in 1909 with liabilities expected to rank amount- ing to (I ,210. A dividend of 3s. 7d. in the pound had been paid. The Official Receiver said the bankrupt started at the Lome Hotel in an insolvent condition. The debtor said he wanted his discharge because he wanted to get a situation. He was not in a position to make anv offer and had no prospect of doing so. The Officia! Receiver objected that the bankrupt had not sufficient assets to pay 10s. in the pound. The order asked for was granted but suspended for two years.
The Stock Exchange and the Political Crisis. The Stock Exchange is approaching the end of the year in a satisfactory condition, and though forecasts of good times in Janu- ary are perennial and are often not ful- filled, one hears at the present plenty of prognostications that the advent of the New Year will bring with it a notable improve- ment in the volume of Throgmorton-street business. At present, while the temper of the house is good, there is admittedly not much in the way of fresh dealings, the public, since the failure of the political conference ntinated clearly that a General Election was inevitable, having done very little either in investment or speculative channels. The feeling of unrest generated by the election, however, is already dying away, and at the fortnightly carryover ar- ranged this week there was noticeable such a restriction of commitments on all hands that markets are obviously in a healthy con- dition and ready to respond to all favour- able influences, which may develope. The rebound, which Las taken place in Consols, from the lowest levels reached early in the month, is typical of the improvement in Stock Exchange sentiment generally. The premier security is the best part of a point over the bottom and even a small fraction in advance of the make-up "I price at the last monthly settlement. This recovery has been due to some special causes, such as buying by the Government broker and pur- chases on French account, but it has never- theless had an appreciable effect in con- firming the Stock Exchange in its more con- fident temper. As regards general factors, markets have nothing to grumble at. The monetary situation grows more and more favourable. Call money is down in the neighbourhood of 2 per cent, and at the settlement this week the banks were lend- ing money to the brokers for a fortnight at 4I to 4| per cent., or fully £ per cent, under the rate charged at the end of No- vember settlement. Contangoes were con- sequently lighter all round, a fact of which prospective bulls may be counted upon to take due rote. The healthy technical condition of markets and the decline in money rates has encouraged insiders to put values forward fairly substantially all round in the wake of Consols, and they have ex- perienced little difficulty in taking this course, the stale bull element having been quite eliminated. Another considera- tion calculated to favourably impress mar- kets has been the change for the better in the labour situation. At last the great ship- building lockout has been terminated by a ballot on which 13,715 voted for acceptance of the masters' revised terms, and only 1,290 against. The lockout had been dragg- ing on for over three months, and the settle- ment of the dispute is oound to react in a stimulating fashion upon industry generally.

Flour-Milling in North Wales I Among the comparatively few industries in North Wales, Hour-milling has come to occupy an unexpected and quite remarkable prominence. This is solely due to the won- derful enterprise associated with the Bangor Flake Flour*Mills at Fangor, the largest con- cern of its kind in a very wide district. ^\hat is the secret of this firm's success ? The answer cannot be given m a word, but a very ]ar(,e element attention bestowed large element is the attention bestowed upon the three capital factors of value quality, and price. The flours milled by them produce bread of delicious flavour and. what is no less important to the con- suming public, are warranted the natural colour produced by high-class milling. In these days of chemical treatment of food, when so many eatables are certainly not what they seem, it is cause for gratitude that there is a North Wales iirm whose flour is the genuine article.
