Barry Gas and Water Committee. REPORTS AND RATES. This Committee met at the Gasworks Offices on Monday afternoon, Mr W. Paterson in the chair, supported by Mr A. T. White and Mr J. A. Manaton. GAS. The report of the gas engineer (Mr F. M. Harris) showed that during the month 32 gas services had had been laid, 16 ordinary gas meters fixed, 102 pre-payment meters, seven cjoking-stove", 78 pre-payment cooking-stoves, and four gas fires. The increase in the con- suraption of gas over the corresponding period of last year continues satisfactory said Mr Harris), and I consider fully justifies all that has been carried out to meet the extra demand." WATER. The consumption of water, Mr E. W Waite reported, during the month was 660,418 gallons a day, equivalent to 22-a gallons per head of the 4 population. In the corresponding, montim of last year the average quantity of water consumed per day was 651,456 gallons, and the consump- tion last month was 8,956 gallons per day more than in August, 1900. The rainfall for the month averaged 2-86 inches. THE ESTIMATE. The estimate of the Gas and Water Depart- ment's expenditure was next considered, the Chairman remarking tint he thought the Finance Committee should have refrained from criticising the department until the estimate had considered by the Committee. It was decided to lessen an item in the department's expenditure from £ 2,300 to £ 2,000.
CONTRABAND TOBACCO. CAPTAIN HEAVILY FINED AT BARRY. Captain W. G. Johnston, master of the s.s. Accom ic, lying in Barry Dock, was summoned (before Major-General Lee and Mr W. W. Nr-ll) at the local Police-court on Monday charged with smuggling aOlb of Cavendish tobacco and a bottle of Florida water; the single value an 1 duty wis S9 118 9d. Mr A. S. Williams, chief officer rt Customs it Barry, prosecuted, an4 Mr F. J. Lean, solicitor, appeared for t';e defefdant. F. W. Matthews, one of the Cunon<> officer*, said that on the 27tb of Set. ember. the day after the arrival cf the vessel tt Barry, he re-iummaged the ship, and in a spare berth used as a store he found the tobacco underneath the bunk, a quantity of stor, a hiding it from view. The bottle of Florida water was found beneath some straw. When questioned why he bad not "declared" the tobacco, the c,ip-Ain admitted that it was his property. In cross-examination, witness admitted that the tobacco was placed in the box properly labelled. —Mr Lean Don't you think if he desired to conceal it the captain might hll. placed a wrong label upon it?—Witness: lt always, sir; there are quite now ideas of smuggling in these days. sir.—The Bench imposed a fine amounting to the treble value and duty together, with costs.

FINANCES OF BARRY- SCHOOL BOARD AND DISTRICT COUNCIL. PROSPECTIVE REDUCTION IN COUNCIL RATE. SCHOOL BOARD STATIONERY. Barry public bodies are just now discuwing the estimates of expenditure upon which to base the current rate. The intelligence pub- lished in our last issue that there is to be a prospective decrease in the Council's rate of 2d in the £ came as a great relief to the rate- payers, who had for a long time suffered through the depression which has existed for some time past. SCHOOL BOARD. The Finance Committee of the School Board met on Thursday in last week, under the presi- dency of the Ray W. Williams, the only other member prebent being Mr D. Lloyd. The items for estimated expenditure included £ 68 for election expenses salaries of officers, E355 salaries of day school teachers, £ 8,400; re- payment of principal and interest, £ 2,250, the total expenditure being £ 13,793. The esti- mated receipts inclade £ 3,550 as grant from the Board of Education; XI,250 fee grant; the total reaching £ 4,030; the amount thus re- quired from the rates being Xg,762, which will leave the rate the same as in the previous half- year. DISTRICT COUNCIL. The Council held a special meeting on Monday evening, when Mr J. L. Davies, J.P., the chairman, presided, there being also present— Councillors W. Paterson, J. A. Manaton, James Jones, E. B. Smith-Jones, A. T. White, and J. Mil ward. The meeting was convened by re- quisition, signed by Messrs Smith-Jones, J. Jones, and Milward for the express purpose of considering the estimates as submitted by the Finance Committee. Councillor E. B. Smith-Jonep, chairman of the Finance Committee, in moving the adoption of the estimate, said it would be found that the amount required was X16,173, or X627 less tbnn in the last half-year, and £ 963 lese than in the corresponding half of last year. There were credits Estimated amounting to X3,845, and after deducting £1,800 for voids, &c, and de- ducting the amount of the balance of the old rate ( £ 1,000) there would still be a net increase in credits of £ 267. They had had to make provision for an increase of S50 in salaries and X200 more for lighting, and there was a very large increase in the interest and re-payment of loans account, amounting to JE792 6s Id, or a net increase on the previous half-year's account of £ 463. Although these increases had to be met, they would find that the estimate was somewhat less than it had been in former half- years. There were five items in the estimate which might possibly have gone to loan ac- count, viz., S75 in respect of Barry Harbour in removing buoys, Ac S60 for the taking down and re-building the wall and widening the lane at the rear of Mertbyr-street and Holton-road, 170 for raising Burlington-street, JE30 for fencing Cadoxton Common, andE15 for setting back a wall at the Intermediate Schools. After conversation with the clerk, however, he (the speaker) was inclined to think that it would be creating a certain amount of difficulty if they got a loan for E250 for all these items without re-paying former loans, and it was, besides, scarcely worth while doing so. Councillor J. Milward second the adoption of the estimates. The Clerk There is"ailetter from Councillor Jose in reference to the estimates. Dear air-- Councillor Smith-Jones I think it is hardly fair for any member of the Council to send a letter when be ought to be here in attendance. I don't know what the 3etter contains, but no member ought to send a written communication if he cannot come here himself. The Chairman Do you object. Councillor Smith-Jones: Decidedly I do. Councillor Milward I think it is absurd, myself. The Cleik I will hand it to the Chairman to read. The Chairman The letter only points out some corrections in one or two items. It says he is unable to attend. Mr Smith-Jones If you, Mr Chairman, like to make any use of the contents of the letter, I have no objection. Councillor Milward: Besides, it is unfair. If a member is not here we cannot debate the matter with him. I think, under the circum- stances, the letter bad better lay in abeyance. The Chairman There is nothing very par- ticular in it. Is it your wish that it lay on the table ? Councillor White I beg to move that. Councillor James Jones I second it. The resolution was unanimously carried, and tile other resolution in favour of the adoption of the estimates was carried in a similar manner. The estimates mean that a rate of Is 6d in the £ will be sufficient for the next half-year, and the Council will at the next meeting con- sider the question of reducing it to that sum.
HOW TO CURE NEURALGIA. THE EXPERIENCE OF A LONDON NURSE. The piercing, tearing, burning pain of neuralgila has probably no equal for the agony it causes ti2, p, or sufferer. Paroxysms of pain may occur everjv tew seconds, (r tlley may take place daily, or al longer intervals, affecting not ouly the face, l-nt sometimes the stomach and other parts of the body. It usually arises from general weikn?ss, cold, injury r pressure on a nerve, or iirpuverished blood. Nervous people are subject to it more than others.

BAHIY PUBLIC WOHKS. The moBthly meeting of this committee was held at the Clerk's Office, Holton-road, Barry Dock, on Tuesday in last week. Present-Mr J. H. Jose (in the chair), Dr O'Donnell, Mr J. A. Manaton, and Mr Paterson. PRIVATE IMPROVEMENTS. The surveyor (Mr Pardoe) submitted esti- mates for the carrying out of private improve- ments in Kendrick-road, Uminster-strret, and Colcot-road. In answer to Mr Manaton the Clprk (Mr Hughes) said all the private im- provement objections which had recently been before the magistrates had been settled, and that the objections of Rev Aaron Davies and Mr Harper, interested in Hannah-street, had been withdrawn, otherwise they would have been beard at the police-court the previous Monday.—Dr O'Donnell said that, according to the principle allowed in the recent objections by the Council, when a man was served with his final apportionment he had only to refuse to pay it, and for the time which elapsed between his refusal and when the objection was heard at the court he need not pay any interest.—The Clerk thought the Couucil was entitled to remit interest if it thought it was fair to do so. The late case was exceptional. It was a ques- tion really for the auditor.—It was decided to apply for a loan to carry out the Harbour-road improvem nts. QUESTION ALREADY SETTLED. A letter was read from Mr Prout, secretary to the Master Builders' Association, stating that the Association thought it unfair that the Council should fix the rate of wages to be paid the carpenters, as recently done, and giving a list of employers not members of the Master Builders' Association, and the number of men they employed. The Chairman We cannot re-open the case now. We have already decided the question. Each side had an opportunity of explaining their case before the committee. MERTHTR DOVAN FOOTPATH. Mr Claude Thompson, agent to the Wenvoe Castle Estate, wrote with reference to the right of way between Cadoxton and Merthyr Dov n. asking that the Council defor taking action against the tenant for diverting the path. It was decided to do this till the negocidtions were complete betwepn landowner and Council.- The Chairman, Dr O'Donnell, and Mr Manaton were appointed a committee to deal with the matter, and see Mr Thompson, it being sug- gested that the old pathway should at once be cleared, and the new bridge pulled down. ESTIMATE. The estimates for the coming half-year of the expenditure in the surveyor's department amounts to £ 1.762 3s— £ 917 3s for labour and £ 845 for materials and haulage.
SANITATION AT DINAS POWIS. A SLOW MOVING COUNCIL. The St. Andrew's Ratepayers' Association met at the National Schoolroom,Dinas Powis, on Thursday evening, under the presidency of Mr Boueher. Reports having appeared in all the local and Cardiff papers on the sanitary state of Dinas Powis, it was felt that the Association should at once urge the authorities to proceed with the scheme. Dr Rocbe thereupon moved a resolution ask- ing the Chairman of the Parish Council to convene a meeting of ratepayers for the con- sideration of this matter. He thought it most important, as the state of the village had been made public, that they urge the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council to proceed with the greatest rapidity of which they are capable, with some scheme of drainage. Since he ha.d known the district, seven or eight years ago, they were in exactly the same position. They had been told over and over again that the place was on the point of being drained, but it seemed to remain at that. More drastic steps would have to be taken than writing to the Clerk of the Council and getting an answer. It was a matter for discussion the course they should take, whether they should approach the County Councilor the Local Government Board in the matter, or memorialise the district. Mr Rider seconded the resolution. It seemed to him that the question was going a-begging. Mr J. Isaac said the matter was receiving attention at the hands of the Council, and that would decide the Council's action with the Barry people. It would be better to delay calling a meeting until a report was received. Dr Roche That report has been coming for the last twelve months. Mr D. R. Morgan said they bad it in hand since last February, but the Council, Mr O. H. Jones had said, could do nothing till they had got a report. The Chairman Do you mean to say that the Coancil could itot ask their expert adviser to send in a report ? Mr Morgan As a result of my continually prodding them they have actually had some kind of a report from Mr Bell. He told me privately he did not think the report would be ready before Christmas. The Chairman: It seems to me a most extra- ordinary state of affairs. Mr Rider The whole thing is a farce. Finally the resolution was passed unani- mously. 0_-
LOCAL POLICE COURT NEWS. MONDAY. Before Maior-General H. H. iEEand Mr W. W. NELL. THE CASK OF FORSE. William John Forse, 53, Graving Dock-street, has been remanded from time to time on a charge of unlawfully wounding his wife.

Prisone r, the cook—Josef B,)ndenau- Ito appeared greatly battered about, %as declared to have used the kllib on a seaman who, he declared, had driven him out of temper.—He was committed for tri.il at the Quarter Sessions. A I'lXCUAJl ACTION. John \V. Bradfojd, de.-crioed by Mr F. P. Jones- Lloyd, as a highly respectable man, was brought up in custody charged with sheep stealing. The sheep was lost from a flock on the Hayes Farm on Sunday, and Bradford found it, but beciuse Mrs Thomas and himself could not come to torms about the reward, he led the lamb aA ay, but not to tho i-hughter, aDd it was found in his poss, ssion by the police, who ran after him.— General Lee sadd the man ought not to have taken the sheep away, buL as there was no felonious intetit, the caae was dismissed-—Mr Jones-Lloyd declared it to be a preposterous charge.

f, J A WEAVER'S FOUR YEARS' MARTYRDOM TEN DOCTORS failed to cure hen?. ALL HOPE ABANDONED. HER GRAVE CLOTHES PREPARED. Bile Beans for Biliousness restored kar to Perfect Health. I Wherever there is a reading public, and wherever men and women suffer from mortal ailmente, the following details should be read with great care. They are details of such an extraordinary nature that, were they advanced without corroboration or proof, every reasonable being would be entitled to doubt them. Placed before the public in the way they are now, howtver, their very extreme character becomes a source of strength for B n0^ only W'N corroboration—signed by respectable tradespeople—be found b< low, but also Jf a sworn statement signed by the patient herself before a Commissioner for Oaths. These proofs of the truth of every statement made below are here given and, in addition, every V/ w inquiry into the ease is courted. It is w ithout doubt one of the marvels of a marvelleusage. B /tN ill ff,r The subject of it is Miss Annie Brook, of Eastwood's Buildings, Dark-lane, Mirfleld. In \n )ff//■'•'■' the presence of her mother and several witnesses she detailed the following circumstances y < LN k/' /j' "I *m a weaver, but four years ago I began to be ill and had to leave my work. At first /f\ j I suffered from neuralgia. My head was so bad that for days and days I was racked with j ■'■■ pain. One side of my face was particularly bad, and I had five teeth drawn without getting /A\ /A'77 any relief. I could not take food, partly because I had no appetite, and partly because, if /v, I did, I had indigestion so bad that the pain in my chest and between my shoulders was f/—' k agonising. I also suffered from anseinia and dropsy; v 4, w.ell» doctor was called in, and to our surprise he told us that my chief trouble was B ySzc 'if1 j /vheart disease. Nobody in our family had been so afflicted before, and we could not under- B JY \ij'/ lijjll iIf!r/ stand it. One thing, however, was quite clear—that I continued to get worse. My cheeks B in V ,/¥ r rviwiw iMiw\ nd eyes became puffed up with the dropsy, and my legs were swollen to nearly twice their H U J 'I i'M\I I 'MVWU 1\ u,ual s*ze- I could not keep still, but was continually twitching and shaking. At several g |\ I] !] (lift /] J i/fill \W/ I parts of my body I could put my finger on the skiu and move the water about which was B AY/ m, m l V I y^hhWk underneath/ 1 I \\a r Ml' n i' £ A/ I M M M Notwithstanding the doctor's treatment I got worse, so we asked another to attend H | Ujlt i j, !| fl V AY j I my > me. He also treated me for heart disease, but with no more success and in the end gave |j| I A|V yj'ljl j: I | Hi I \Wf\ place to a third. In all I have been attended by ten different doctors, and none of them g (\ 1* W'/ 11 I h I I y/j'' 'f/9 could do me any good. For nine long months 1 was in such a condition that I could not • jjlll'f .1 j| /V j walk upstairs, and a bed had to be made in the kitchen. Yet I could not sleep. Never B Cjl; v I \4 I 7 did I get a wink of sleep until four o'clock in the morning, and then it was of such a fitful ( j 1*1'} nature than it afforded me little real rest. And all the time I was getting weaker and V"1 (4. I (■/ weaker. I had so little strength that I could hardly stand on my feet, and was so dizzy Ylj\i V, if' when I tried to walk that I had to support myself by catching hold of the furniture. See- "J c T»r>rkrkTr ing that the local doctors did me no good I went t"> tl-.e Dewsbury Infirmary. For nine MISS ANNIIlj BROOK. weeks I was in that Institution, and for a long time after I was an out-patient* Then I from (I photo by Moorhoust, Mirficld. went to Bridlington, and was there three weeks in the hope that change of air would be beneficial. Yet the result was no more satisfactory I got no better, and gave up all hope." Here Mrs Brook iuterposed, and said :—"None of us thought the would ever get better again. The doctors told me she might go off any minute, and it seemed "0 likely that, unknown to her, I actually prepared her grave clothes. For months and months I thought each night she would be dead in the morning. Every few minutes during the night I would touch her to see if she were still living, and often, the has felt a little cold, I have sprung out of bed, thinking that at last the had gone. I was a fearful time, I can tell you." Continuing, Miss Brook said she was in this bad state when a neighbour advised her to try Chas. Forde'n Bile Beans. She gave her one as an experiment, and it seemed to do the sufferer a little good. After that a box was purchased, and Miss Brook began to take them regularly. The effect of them upon her was detailed by Mrs Brook, who said Their first effect was to cause diarrhoea. Now, Annie had been subject to constipation for a long time, and this effect in her weak state seemed to be very dangerous. Still she said she felt no worse. For my own part I said to myself, These beans will kill our Annie.' Yet she went on taking them and seemed no worse. Eight days after she had begun to take them she said to me, Mother, the pain in my head is gone.' I said to her, Yes, and something else has gone too.' Sure enough, although she had not noticed it herself, here limbs were no CjrJB longer swollen, and her eyes had lost their puffy appearance. The dropsy had goue.
