KEEP THIS AT HAND. TELLS HOW TO DEAL WITH ALL CASES OF ACCIDENT. HOW TO PREVENT BLOOD POISONING FROM CUTS, BURNS, SORES, WOUNDS, &c. EVERY HOUSE ITS OWN HOSPITAL. I To know exactly what to do when a case of accident arises is knowledge that I is valuable. It may mean the saving of hours of pain, it may indeed mean the saving of life. Considering, that at I practically any moment of the day an acciden may arise in the home, at busi- ness, or when indulging, in some inno- cent pastime, the advice given here should prove of great importance. When it has been oaretully read through this article should be cut out and placed ready for immediate reference when needed. Imagine losing a finger, a hand, or a whole limb, just through not knowing what to do in cases of accident. Day by day there are cases reported in the papers where such a matter as the scratching of a fiuger with a rusty nail,, tjhe cutting of the hand or the faulty treatment of a burn or scald has resulted in acute Blood Poisoning, or that most terrible of all ends Tetanus or Lock Jaw. Every mother, every wife should realise the necessity of this knowledge which tells how to deal wiifti cases of accident so that should cuts, burns, bruises, sores, scalds, wounds and other forms of acci- dent arise, timely intervention will pre- vent such complication. "It took bad ways" is a well-known expression, de- scribing a serious result from a very slight beginning. These are points to remember. When the person is injured so that the skin of any part is broken it is absolutely neces- sary to prevent any dust or dirt coming near the exposed part. A wound or cut into which dirt has crept may result in blood-poisoning. The way to treat Wounds or cuts is to carefully wash with cold clean water as soon as possible after they are inflicted. In the case of bruises, burns, or scalds, it is not advisable to wash the part injured but to immediately apply a soothing cooling and healing. operation. In cases of sores, boils, abscesses and such like troubles which can hardly be called accidents it is necessary as quickly as possible tb draw out all the bad mat- ter present and thus to take away the chief danger of blood-poisoning. An old-fashioned idea for this purpose is to apply hot water or linseed poultices, but as these are painful and may lead to serious inflammation and not always accomplish their object, the process is attended with some danger. When the wound or cut has been wash- ed and when the bad matter from the sore or abscess has been removed it is necessary to apply some healing prepara- tion which will make the flesh once more healthy and cause the skin to grow over the part affected in a perfectly natural manner. It is obvious then from these remarks if there is a preparation that will not only perform the cleansing and drawing operation but the healing operation as well. such preparation, having a three- fold value, will practic.ally form a home hospital whereby a Motiher may treat her little one herself or her husband in cases where sudden accident arises, without having to recollect the above various forms of treatment, recommended by experience and usage. JUST LIKE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE. There are manv ointment like pre- parations placed before 'he public which are all guaanteed to heal. n-nd heal quickly, but there is a danger in most of these, in that whilst they heal the outer skin, they do not draw away ihe bad matter underneath so that whilst to all inteniis and purposes a cure has been effected in'a few clays a further eruption might take p!ace and blood poisoning re- sult. It has proved no easy matter to secure such a preparation as is desired, that is to say, one tthat will draw out the bad matter in the part affected and heal quickly- and permanently at the same time. We are now, however, able to announce the splendid fact that for all homes such a preparation is offered. For 7.5 years there has been in the possession of a family of independent means, knowledge of a preparation that has proved wonder- fully successful in healing oases of Whitlows, abscesses, wounds, cuts, bruises, scalds, skin diseases, and blood poisoning. During this long period numerous cases have been dealt wilth gratuitously, and the cureseffuct.edby this prepara- tion have indeed been marvellous. It is owing to the generosity of a well-known gentleman whose name must for the presen be kept private, that a wonderful recipe has been given to an old establish- ed firm in order that they may make up such a preparation as is desired. A GREAT POULTICE OINTMENT. "Marabaz" is the name of the prepara- tion referred to, and it is pleasing to think that at last a recipe for this pre- paration has been divulged, so that the public may obtain any supplies of this wonderful Poultice Ointment that they desire. There is no qestion that in this wonderful preparation now placed before the public there is a safe and reliable method of dealing with all cases of accident likely to result in blood poisoning, abscesses and suchlike. A CURATIVE OINTMENT OF THREE-FOLD POWER. "Marabaz" placed upon cuts, scalds, boils, wounds, abscesses, whitlow, or any fostering skin trouble will FIRISTLY draw all poisoning matter away, cleanse the wound thoroughly, and eventually heal it perfectly. Wherever poisonous or foreign matter is present, in whatever form or however virulent "Marabaz" will draw it, out, leaving the flesh as clear and healthy as before. "Marabaz" drains like a Poultice, and will be found invaluable in all cases where splinters and broken needles have entered the skin deeply, for its apipli'ca- tion draws the foreign matter right away without any pain and without any possi- bility of festering. BANDAGES THAT DO NOT TEAR AWAY THE FLESH. An important point in connection with "Marabaz" is thati it will not adhere to the wound and may be applied to the most tender wound and subsequently bandaged up without any fear that when the bandages are removed the raw flesh or the freshly healing skin will be torn away. In order to show the practical value of this wonderful Poultice Oint- ment, the proprietors have many testi- monials, and will be pleased to forward these on to all who are interested. All those cases are absolutely genuine, and are vouched upon tihe authority of the Proprietors of this wonderful healing specific. It is sold in specially decorated tin boxes at Is. 11 d. and 2s. 9d. It 2 surely seems wonderful that for such a, small sum as Is. I d. a Mother is able to provide in her home a, complete hospital for the treatment of all acci- dents, and consequent complications. "Marabar," is not a modern remedy suggested on the spur of the moment. The 75 years of experience have proved its power to heal, and wherever it has been introduced itis wonderful powers have been fully appreciated. It is on sale at all chemists throughout North Wales, or can be obtained from the Marahaz Co.. REDDITCII.

veyor has reported that the Contractors for the Shelters in Craigydon Parade unci Gloddaeth Avenue were subject to a penalty of £ 20 for the non-completion of the work within the specified time, and asked for instructions as to the enforce- ment of the penalty. The Surveyor s: t led that the work though delayed had been carried out in a very satisfactory manner, y and that iron frames for the windows in- stead of wood had been substituted after the acceptance of the tender, and some little deilay may have been caused thereby. The Committee decided to reduce the penalty to a nominal sum of L2.
THE LOSS AT MESSRS. IND COOPE'S VJORKS. REPORT OF THE: COMMITTEE. The following observations by the Engineer, were read re the above, at a meeting of the Llandudno Water and Gas Committee This meter, which was fixed on the 6th of May, 1904, is a Bee Meter, sup- plied by Messrs. Ham, Baker and Co .,of London, and is similar in construction to the majority of water meters used by this Council; ith81 only other meters in use beting the Siemen's meters supplied by Messrs. Guest, and Chrimes, of Rother- ham, and 2 or 3 by Messrs. Glenfield and Kennedy. There is a difference, how- ever, in the Meter m the number and description of the dials. All mercers up to and including 1-inch have six dah-the lowest being a "Units" Dial and all the dials are marked in words thus: "Units," "Tens," "Hundreds," Thou- sands," etc. All 2 inch and 3inch meters have 7 dia|ls—the lowest being a "Tens" dial which is marked in "words." All the other dials, however, are marked -in figures, namely:—"100, 1000," 10',000, etc. It is the opinion of the Engineer thait n, -1,,i S ,t,his method of marking the dials is mis- leading. Take for instance, the dial marked "100"—any person reading this and ignoring the "tens" dial for a moment, might easily assume that ,the whole re- volution of this dial would record 100 gallons, whereas as a matter of fact it re- cords 1,000 gallons. In the Engineer's opinion, the d3.t}s should aill he marked in word "Hundreds" or in figures in the plural, "100s" and not as explained. It is his opinion that it is this which misled the late water meter reader who was a man of long experience in reading water and gas meters and was a man in whom implicit trust was placed. By making this mistake, however, the meter has been wrongly read from the time it was fixed—"Tens" being read for "Hun- dreds," "Hundreds" for "Thousands," and so on. A record was also kept by a representative of Messrs. Ind, Goope and 00., but the same mistake was entered all through his book. The mistake was not. observed by any of the officials at the Town Hall, owing to the fact that Messrs. Ind, Coope and Co., were one of the Council's largest consumers, and because the con- sumption for corresponding quarters was inerea.singat a fairly even rate. The enormous quantity of water however, passing through the meter was chiefly being used over a. condenser, and as soon as Messrs. Ind, Coope and Co., realised what the meter was passing, they im- mediately took steps to enable them to re- duce the quantity. This is proved by the fact that on the 3rd of September, 1909, the record for the previous 24 hours was 25,000 gallons, and on the 4th September 6,000 gallons. This amount was increased slightly later, but has never since been over 10,500 for 24 hours, whereas previously it had been over 38,000. The matter was first brought to the knowledge of the Engineer on the 5th of July, and he visited the site on the 6th of July, and several days at different times afterwards. The mat- ter was reported to the Accountant, who looked into it, and prepared figures, and eventually arranged an interview with Mr Dawson, Messrs. Ind, Coope and Co.'s represenitaitiivei, who. met the Accountant and the Engineer, on the 23rd of August. The matter was fully explained, and it was agreed that a further test meter should be fixed. This was done on the 26th August, and the results, wfiith. the whole matter, reported to the Water Committee of the 30th August. The minutes qJ the Council ex- plain the matter since that date. It was decided (a) that this Committee is of opinion that tihe late metier reader made an error in reading the water meter above referred to, but the fact that the dial of the said meter differed from any u other meter in town, minimifses to some extent any blame that might, attach to him. (b) That this Committee are further of opinion that inasmuch as the special characlter of the dial of the said meter was not pointed out to the meter reader by the Engineer, the latter must to this extent share in the responsibility for the error, (c) That this Committee is also of opinion that a more systematic system for checking and comparing water meter readings is desirablle, and that this Committee do at an early date consider the matter and report thereon.
MORLEiY ROAD. The Engineer re- ported that the portion of Morley Road, as shewn on the pllan No. 2010 now sub- mitted, has been sewered, levelled, paved, metalled, flagged, channelled, and made I good to his satisfaction. It was resolved that pursuant to the provision* of Sec- tion 20 of the Private Street Works Act, 1892, the Council be and they are hereby recommended to declare by notice affixed in the said street, the before-mentioned portion of Morley Iload to be a highway repairable by the inhabitants at large.' NORTH WALES ADVERTISING BOARiD.-At the first meeting of the Executive Committee of the newly con- stituted North Wales Advertising Board Mr Charles A. Jones Carnarvon, was ap- pointed chairman, and the following vice- chairmen were elected:—Mr R. J. Jones, Holyhead, for Anglesey; Mr R. Roberts, Llandudno, Carnarvonshire Mr E Allen, Colwyn Bay, Denbighshire; and Mr 8. Perks, Rhyl, Flintshire, Mr A, J. 'Oldman was appointed secretary. Schemes for press advertising, the issuing of handbooks, posters, framed views, albums of views, and lantern lectures Iwere presented and considered. The number of towns which have already joined the Board is twenty-two, and others are considering the question.
PROPOSED ROAD FROM CRAIGYDON TO MAESDU. i A PUBLIC SPIRITED ACTION. The proposed] new road at Craigydon was again the subject of much discus- sion at the monthly meeting! of the Coun- cil on Wednesday. Included in the minutes of the Works Committee was the following letter which had been received from Mr G. A. Huinphre;ys: I notice in the local press that the Works Committee recommend the Coun- cil to approve plan of a road, and with this condition :—• "That Lord Mostyn "riU give all facilities to the Council for doing the work, and dedicate the land for the pur- poses of a public highway, and that the Council shall not, be required or called upon to pay any compensation to tenants for disturbance or otherwise." In the first place, I would say that no plan of any kind has, so' far, been re- ceived to submit to Lord Mostyn; and secondly, the condition aforesaid is one tihat.Lord Mostyn c,annot entertain. The. proposedi road is initiated by y6ur Council, and its. in no. way wanted by this Estate. One would have thought that if an owner was prepared to give land for a road through his property, which he did not require, the people who wanted the rOllidl would bear the expense connected with such scheme. The con- dition is most unreasonable, and is one that no landgiver ought to be asked to accept. I would point out that Lord Mostyn has always been prepared to favourably consider proposals having for their ob- ject the incr easting of the facilities of get- n ting from place to place, and during re- cent years has given free for road iin- provement purposes large quantities of land, and the Town Authorities have on no occasion had to purchase any land. At a later meeting of the Council in Com- mittee it was decided that the Council be recommended to adopt the proposals of the Works Committee as set out, subject to the words "free of cost" being inserted after the. word "facilities" in the first line of resolution (a), also, to the words "free of cost to the Council" befing inserted after the word "highway" of the same resolution. Mr W. H. Jones ,called the special at- tention of: the Counciii to the matter in view of (tihe need of providjing work for the unemployed. The work m hand would be practically fishe.d.this week, and it would be necessary to provide further for the men, unless they were to suffer ex- treme privation. He suggested that as not more than from JE8 to £ 10 would be required by the tenants by way of com- pensation,, the Council should agree; to pay that amount in order that the work could be put in hand at once. This led to a long discussion, during which Mr Bone stated that Mr Henry WVlson had received promises from several residents in Craigydon to contri- bute to a, compensation fund in order that the work might proceed. Four or five amendments were proposed and seconded and discussed, but eventual- ly it was unanimously decided on the motion of Mr Marks, seconded by Mr H. Edwards, that. the recommendaions be passed, subject to the condition that, the Council pay to the landowner the amount of compensation received from sub- scribers in Craigydon through Mr Wil- son. NEW SURFACE WATrEIR SEWER, The construction of the road during the next few weeks being still problem- atical, it became necessary to arrange an alternative. Fortunately the sub-com- mittee appointed to consider the question of finding work had suggested the laying down of a surface water drain in Rou- mania Drive andl Queen's Rio ad, which the Surveyor was of opinion would be neces- sary next year. The estimated cost of the work was £ 420. On the motion of Mr W. Thomas, the Council unanimously agreed to put the work in hand at once if it was not pos- sible to proceed with the road. The Surveyor stated that he could pro- ceed as soon as the papers were delivered. It was further decided that the work of cleansin.g the tank sewer and surface water barrel sewer in Giljodclaeth Avenue be proceeded with at. once. -H_-
PROPOSED EXTEINSION AT EiLEICTRlC LIGHTING WORKS.— The Llandudno Electricity Committee met at the Works to consider the sug- gestion of the Electrical Engineer for the erection of a, lean-to building as an office in lieu of the office which it is necessary to move in ordei-, to findl room for the small engpine displaced by the erection of the new 50 K.W. enginei. The Com- mittee were unfavourable to piece-meal extensions of the works, which, they con- sider, detract from the appearance of the structure, and it was resolved that the Electrical Engineer, in conjunction with the Surveyor, be requested to prepare plans and esimates for a permanent ex- tension of the existing building, so as to provide for additions (likely to be re- quired during the next 10 years att least, quired during the next 10 years att least, I and that in the meantime the tenders re- ceived for the erection of a lean-to office be deferred.

LLANDUDNO COUNCIL AND THE WEST SHORE. PROPOSED PUBLIC CONVENIENCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF LLAN- N DUD NO. Very iinporitant matters relating to the development of the West Shore were dis- cussed at length alt the monthly meeting of the Council on Wednesday evening, Mr Jas. MeMa,ster presiding. The first, item on the agenda, wais the proposal to construct, an underground public convenience of which the Surveyor had .submitted a plan and reported, to the W: rks C limit, ee that he had been in communication with the Eccle- siastical Commissioners as to a site for the convenience. TheCbmmisisoneirSi had agreed to tihe posilion suggested by the Surveyor upon the understanding that the building he entirely underground with the exception of the roof, the design of which to be approved by them; that a rent [on a 21 year's' lease] of 10s. per annum be paid, such rent to. merge in the rent, of the front and foreshore under the arrangement they have recently suggest- ed, if accepted by the Council. The Works Committee; decided to re- commend tihe Council to carry out the work by direct. labour under the super- vision of the Surveyor. With regard to the position of the con- venience, the matter in regard to the site was Left to., Messrs. Councillors R. Roberts, and W.H. Jones, with the Surveyor. The Surveyor's estimate for carrying out the work being £ 988, the Committee requested! him to re- port at the next meeting of the Commpitlee what the difference in cost would be if the walls were made of con- crete with brick facings, instead of en- tirely brick walls. The. Committee decided to apply to the Local Government Board for sanction to borrow money for carrying out the work, and to request, the Board to permit the work to'be commenced forthwith, in order to provide work for unemployed persons in the town. At a. later meeting it was decided that the Surveyor be requested to submit a scheme for the erection of a, building which shall not cost more, than P,700, re- ducing the accommodation accordingly, exclusive of the cost of drainage, and that the Council be recommended to in- vitle quotations for carrying out the whole of the work complete from the best known sanitary engineers as well as from local firms. Mr Bone and Mr T. W. Griffith object- ed to the work being done on a twenty years' lease, and the recommendations were referred back to the Committee to be dealt with when another and more im- portant matter had been decided. PROPOSED! TRANSFER. OF LAND. The matter had already been discussed by the Council in committee on the re- ceipt- of a letter from Messrs Smitih, Gore and Co., stating that they are prepared to consider a proposal which has been more than once made for the transfer to the Council of the control of the un- covered land between West Parade ancl the Sea.. They can recommend the Ecclesiasiioajl Commissioners to lease to the Council the area shewn on the tracing accompanying! the said: letter, ex- tending from the boundary of the land sold to the late Dr. Ta.it, to a, line with Trinity Street, including the foreshore and model yacht pond, for a term of, say 21 years at a rent of £:25 yearly, subject to the condition that there shall be no sub-letting other than for bathing huts or machines, or for similar purposes, and that no public, convenience or other erection shall be erected thereon without the consent of the Lessors; that the present lettings to the Light Railway Company and the Pier or Landing Stage Co., are excluded, .and to such other con- ditions as the Commissioner's .Solicitors may advise to be necessary. Any rent now paid by the Council for Shelters, etc., to cease, but the arrangement as to the alteration of the sewerage pipes and other matters referred to in the deed dated the 17th April, 1907, not, to be affected. The Council to pay the costs of the lease and counterpart.—-It was re- solved!, with two dissentients, that the Council be recommended! to offer to take the land referred to on a 99 years' lease, at a rental of 210 per annum with a pro- viso. that any Promenade that during the said term be constructed by the Council shall be dedicated to the use of the pub- lic for ever. I THE COUNCIL'S DECISION. j Mr Robert Roberts said thalt, taking into consideration the benefits which would follow the transfer of the. land to. the Council and toO the town gener- ally he thought more favourable terms should have agreed to by the Commis- sioners. When public improvements of this nature had been effected the Mostyn Estate had generally only charged a merely nominal sum. He proposed that the matter be referred to the special com- mittee dealing with the matter. Mr E. E. Bone seconded, and con- curred fn the remarks of Mr Roberts. He thought the agents to the Commis- 7 sioners had not quite realised the posi- tion, and felt that, land of this..sort should be vested, in the public authority.—. (Hear, hear.) The resolution was carried unanimous- ly, and Mr RloIbt. Rloberts added to the committee which consisted of Messrs. J. J. Marks, E. E. Bone, W. H. Jones, and David Davies. MA.ER 1)1)17 BRICKFIELD. WSth reg arid to he offer of the Com- missioners to sed the old brickfield near the railway crossing at Maesddu, a tract of land a little over eight acres in extent, and which had been examined by the Council in committee, the Finance Com- mittee was instructed to report on the matter.
IVSISS ELEANOR RATHBONE AT LLANDUDNO. GENERAL ELEOTttON TACTICS. Continuing1 her short. North Wales tour Miss Eleanor Rathbone, daughter of the late Mr Wm. R,a,thhone (who was for many years member of Parliament for the. Arfon Division) and the first lady to be elected a member of Liverpool City Coun- cil, addressed a woman's suffrage meeting at the Cambrtdge Restaurant on Tuesday evening, at which despite numerous gatherings there was. a, good attendance. Miss Wright, Preswylifa, who presided, congratulated Miss Rathbone. on her election as councjijlilor for the city of Liver- pool, and said that Wales was much in- debted to the Rathbone family.—(Ap- plause.) The late Mr Wm. Rathbone had worked hard for the cause of education in Wales, and she believed that he was responsible for the erection of a consider- able portion of Bangor University.- (Applause.) The suffrage movement in North Wales was in need of a paid organiser. Voluntary workers had accom- plished a great deal, but it was a signi- ficant fact that the leaders of the move- ment were all very busy people in dif- ferenlt directions, and they could not possibly give any more time to the work. It gave her great pleasure to announce, however, that Misis Riathbone had offered to contribute £ 10 towards the expense of a paid organiser ito carry on the work in North Wa,les.-(Applause.) Miss Rathbone devoted the grea,ter portion of a, very practical address to the methods decided upon by the National Council for the ensuing general ejection. The policy briefly defined was (1) to get, parliamentary candidates to in- iciude the granting of women's suffrage in their election address and to promise to press the importance. of the question on thc-ix political leaders; (2) to ask can- didates to, pledge themselves not to vote for any extension of the franchise to men until it had been granted to women; (3) to get a. petition in favour of woman's franchise signed by voters only, for pre- sentation to the Government in power; and (4) to ask every candidate for his views on woman's suffrage at public meetings. Defending; the policy, Miss1 Rathbone said the Society believed that although the progress had been slow, lit had been sure. The British people was at heart a reasonable people, and if the appeal to their reason once reached their ears it would not be made. in vain. One thing was certain, it was no use trying: to bully the people into giving women the fran- chise. '(Hear, hear.) For a long time the N.U.W.S.S. had remained silent, as to the methods of the militant tactics of the younger Society, but now in the in- terests of the cause they were compelled to say what they thought of the methods and express disapproval of the violence used. iSo long as the militant suffragettes only aimed at startling the, people there was nothing very much to say a,gainst the methods, for they had succeeded in bringing the question to the front. When however they counted ignomy and dis- grace and resorted to actuaij violence it was time that a, body working on con- stitu t,iiOnall lines dissociated itself from them..(Heiar, hear.) At the same time, she was compelled to acknowledge that their militant sisters had given a splendid example of self-sacrifice and devotion to the cause.—(Applause.) In conclusion, she appealed to all mem- bers of the Society irrespective of .political opiniilons not to assist candi- dates who were not in favour of granting women the franchise. Miss Walton Evans asked for volun- teers in the work, and many names, were sent in as willing to take round) the peti- tion previous to, and take part in the work on polling day. A vote of thanks to Misis. Ralthibone was proposed by Mr Roger Dawson and seconded by Mr Butterworth, and carried unanimously.
PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL. An important reform which would' bring back to professional foouball some of its old dash and fire, would be the regular permitting of players to follow some trade or calling during the. week. At present the life, between matches, of a professional is one long loaf. En- courage, nay even compel, every player to follow an occupation during the week, and I firmly believe his play would be improved, and certainly we should hear less of our professionals being left pen- niless and useless at the end of their short career.—W. Meredith in "London: Opinion."
A STATESMANLIKE REPLY.. They are telling a story about Mr Lloyd George's little daughter, to the effect that one night recently he had to say to her "What's this I hear? You say you won't go to. bed?" "Papa," was the reply of the states- man's off-spring, "if you heard anything like that, I have been misquoted."
