There has been no more trouble, and their hair is glossy and strong."

HEALTH COMMITTEE.—At a meeting of the Health Committee of the District Council on Thursday in last week it was decided to permit Dr Neale to visit St Helen's to view the system in vogue of providing humanised sterilised milk for infants, seeing that improper feediug has been the direct cause of the high mortality rate among infants.

WELL-WATERED SPIRITS.—Mary Davies, the landlady of the Horse aud Jockey public-house, Twynyrodin, Wenvoe, was summoned before the Barry magistrates (Mr J. S. Batchelor and Colonel Guthrie) on Monday for selling adulterated whisky and gin. Inspector John Williams paid a visit to the house on October 22nd, in consequence of spocific complaints that had been made to the police. He purchased half pint of whisky and the same quantity of gin, sending a sample of each to the public analyst at Swansea. Superintendent Giddiogs produced the certificate showing that the whisky was 431 degrees under proof, and the gin 381 degrees, 181 and 131 degrees below the limit. -Mr J. S. Batchelor The Bench consider both cases proved. This is scandalous robbery of the public, for which defendant will have to pay £10 fine and costs in each case, or in default three months' imprisonment with hard labour. LLANCARFAN. FORTHCOMING TREAT.—The School Board child- ren's annual concert will take place on Friday, November 17th.

TO OUR CORRESPONDENTS. [A report of a speech delivered by the Rev Christmas J. Lewis to members of the Barry Free Church Council on Tuesday evening last will be published next week.-ED. B.H-] THERE WAS A GRUDGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SIR,-Would you allow me, through the columns of your valuable paper, to answer the charge made by Mr F. M. Harris in your contemporary, as this is a matter directly affecting the treatment of tradesmen by their public servants. Notwith- standing my satisfactory proof to the contrary before the bench of magistrates, Mr Harris re- affirms his charge, when the least he could do as a gentleman would have been to apologise, seeing that the Bench dismissed the summons which his action was the sole cause of being issued against me. My dogs were muzzled on the day of the alleged bite being given to the child. If there was no grudge, why did he so hastily and energt-tically inform the police upon a matter which he himself never beheld, but was simply told about. This is no evidence in a court of law. As to the dog being dangerous, time after time children in the street can be seen playing with him. I have had the dog in my possession for the last four years, and it ia only during the last six months that Mr Harris has made the discovery that my dogs are dangerous. I suggest the cause of his grudge against me to be my application for a reduction in the price of gas. Being a large consumer, I instanced the town of Wigan, with 30,000 inhabitants, only paying Is 3d per 1,000 cubic feet. This has somewhat annoyed friend Harris, hence the reason of the manifest grudge. Mr Harris certainly ought, as a gentle- man, to tender me an apology, which I, as a townsman and tradesmen, have a right to expect. I would not have troubled either you, sir, or the public with this matter had it not been that my business is liable to suffer should Mr Harris' un- founded hearsay charge be accepted that I have unmuzzled dogs at large on or about my premises. I repeat, therefore, that Mr Harris in his stated ment has both slandered and libelled me.-I am, &c., J. D. WATSON, 78, High-street, Barry. [It certainly is extraordinary that any person who is the means of bringing a charge in a public court against another should try and re-fight the battle in the columns of a newspaper after it has been decided aoainst him. The magistrates certainly considered the evidence of Mr Watson and his servant that the dog was not out of the house at the time of the alleged offence as being thoroughly satisfactorily, and since the case has been dealt with in a properly legal manner, the importation of bias, street gossip, and hearsay is certainly unjustifiable and undijzuifiod — ED.
