WAR PENSIONS COMMITTEE. Comrades of the Great War Denied Representation. A meeting of the Breconshire War Pensions Committee was held at Brecon on Friday after- noon, Mr. A. Beckwith presiding. The Secretary (Mr. A. Jolly) reported that the dealing with civil liabilities cases up to 12/- per week was now transferred to Pensions Committees. Ninety pel- cent of such cases were under the 12/- limit, and the total number in Breconshire was between 200 and 300. The Secretary also reported that the Board of Trade had now conferred some further powers on the Brecon Labour Exchange agency, but it was not made a separate exchange. Mr. T. Maund, hon. sec. of the Brecon Branch of the Comrades of the Great War, wrote stating that the branch had unanimously resolved to nominate Mr. F. James, of Castle street, Brecon, for one of the two seats on the Pensions Committee to be allotted to repre- sentatives of discharged soldiers and sailors. The Hay branch wrote supporting the nomi- nation. The Secretary stated that in view of the action of the County Council (who make the election) in referring this matter back to the committee, he consuBed Mr. Beckwith, and at his suggestion wrote to the Ystradgynlais and Brynmawr branches of the Discharged Soldiers and Sailors' Federation—(a member of each of these branches had been recommended at the last meeting) asking if they could agree on one nominee, but Ystradgynlais wrote declining. ,y q. The Chairman pointed out that the County Council referred the comrnnttee's recommenda- tion back because they received a petition from a considerable number of discharged soldiers at Brecon, associateith the Comrades of the Great War movement, asking for representation. The Comrades of the Great War now had organised branches at Hay, Brecon, and Crick- howell. rr. S. W. Jones (Brynmawr) proposed that the original recommendation of the committee be adhered to, and Mr. James Powell (Ystrad- gynlais) seconded. Mr. David Powell (Breoon) moved as an amendment that one representative of the Comrades of the Great War and one of the Federation of Discharged Soldiers be nominated, and mentioned that there were about 120 members of the former body at Brecon alone. Mr. E. Pirie Gordon (Crickhowefl) seconded. On a vote being taken the amendment was defeated by a small majority, and the original nominations of the committee will go to the County Council again. Mr. Boive ti, clerk to the Vaynor and Penderyn District Sub-Committee, wrote asking for an increase of his salary from C20 to 930, on the ground that the work had greatly increased, and his application was supported by his committee. Prof. Joseph Jones moved that the application be granted, and Mr. S. W. Jones seconded. Ystradgynlais members thereupon intimated that the work was proving much more than was expected in other districts, and that if this application were granted others would follow. Mr. David Powell urged that these appoint- ments ought not to be regarded from the pound of flesh" point of view, and the application was eventually referred to the Finance Committee. The resignation of Mr. D. Gibson Harris, clerk of the Brynmawr District Sub-Committee, was received, and the usual steps to fill the vacancy ordered. The Breconshire Labour Party having for- warded a resolution appealing to the Committee to treat more generously the representative* of the Discharged Soldiers and Sailors' Feder- ation when they attended their meetings," the Secretary stated that he had written asking for more definite information, and explaining that if the resolution referred to financial matters the representatives would be entitled to railway fare and ] s. per hour for actual loss of wages, but beyond that the committee had no power. To that letter he had had no reply.
NERVOUS AND SLEEPLESS. Weak with Indigestion and loss of Rest, but soon Cured by Dr. Cassell's Tablets. Dr. Cassell's Tablets reinforce the vital power of the system, and give new strength to every bodily function. Here is proof Mrs. Longthorn, 1, Herbert-place, Princess street, Masbro', Rotherham, says I was in a deadful state of weakness, with my nerves all shattered, and utterly broken in health. I could hardly eat anything, and as for sleep, I never had any real rest. When I dozed off I had dreadful dreams of falling and other horrors that made me wake again with a start. My nerves became so bad that I was afraid to cross the street till someone came and took my arm. I suffered terribly with wind, too. I had medicine, and was advised to have my teeth out but nothing did me any good. Then at last I got Dr. Cassell's Tablets, and almost 'rom the first they helped me. All my pain -,lit, and my nerves became all right.

THE WEEK'S GARDENING, HINTS TO ALLOTMENT WORKERS. In most districts potatoes are coming up so well and so strongly that some gardeners might imagine there is nothing necessary to be done, but it is while potatoes are young that special care should be taken with the plants. The hoe should be kept going between the rows to clear away all weeds, later on the large haulms will keep them down. Hoeing also helps to keep the soil around the roots nicely broken up. As soon as the plants are six to eight inches high earth should be drawn up in ridges along the rows. This helps to conserve any rain that may fall about the roots as well as keeping the roots more within bounds. 0 Beans are one of those crops which can be put in during June. provided a sunny border is given them and the ground well cultivated so that they go ahead well after they are sown. A variety of the ridge cucumber, which many allotment holders are growing this year, is the Japanese cucumber. It is shorter and somewhat stouter than the ordinary ridge cucumbers, but it has the merit of being good to eat when cooked, tasting something like a vegetable marrow. A trench 2ft. square and 1ft. deep should be dug and filled with manure of any kind available. This must be well rammed down, and the soil replaced on the top to form a slight mound. In the centre three seeds should be planted, and. if pre- ferred, sticks or a wall or fence or trellis may be used for growing the plants up, as they possess tendrils and grow well in this manner. When fruit forms, the end of the lateral shoots at one leaf beyond the fruits should be picked 6ff. It needs liberal waterings and occasionally liquid manure. It is a mistake to apply manure too liberally to young onions after they have been planted out, if the ground was well manured before the plants were put in. Keep down weeds and water well—this is all that is necessary. But if the ground was somewhat hurriedly prepared for the plants, some si eh manure or guano should be put on between the rows. Winter onions need no longer be manured after this month. This treatment of manuring applies just the same to all varie- ties of onions—shallots, potato, and tree onions. It is anvavs a good ilan to grow the few winter salad plants that are available, and anyone who nas not tried dandelion as a winter salad should certainly make the ven- ture this year. Improved varieties of seed can be bought from most seedsmen, and may be put in at once in drills an inch deep and a foot apart. The soil needs to be well dug and rich, though not recently manured. Flower stems are removed as they form, and the ground kept well hoed. After thinning, the plants can be left to grow till November, when they are lifted and forced in a manner similar to chicory. The large-leaved French is the best variety. This year old stools of rhubarb started very early to throw up flower heads. These should be picked off as socn as seen or they will seriously weaken the plants.. Where crowns have been rather freely picked of their leaves, a fresh dressing of farmyard manure should be spread around them so that the roots may be stimulated to send up fresh leaves. But care must be taken not to pull the plants too lavishly; at least seven or eight good stems should be left at the end of this month, so that the plants may be able to build up strong crowns for next season's crop. A crop v, li Icli everyone should spare some small piece of ground for is red cabbage. It makes the best of all pickles, in many people's opinion, and it is equally good for cooking like gweqi-, cabbage. Seed may be sown at the end of this month or in July in rich, well-manured soil—well-rooted farmyard manure is the best if it cam be procured. Sow the seed very thinly and then plant out the seedlings to three feet apart. When they are growing well ahead liquid manure should be applied every week, and water every day when the weather is dry. Watering should be regu- lar, not spasmodic, or the heads may split and spoil. If the soil is kept uniformly moist good-sized heads slu^ld be the result. spoil. If the soil is kept uniformly moist good-sized heads slI41ld be the result. Peas during the autumn are very accept- able, and these can be obtained if weekly sow- ings are made now. If the ground has been well dug and manured, as for such crops as potatoes, not much need be done before plant- ing. Deep cultivation is the best means of avoiding mildew, which is generally very troublesome during the autumn. Through August and September the plants should re- ceive liberal waterings at the roots, for this planr is a gross feeder, and the peas will be small and scanty in the pods if allowed to grow in dry soil. The space between the rows may be mulched with farmyard manure; this is especially useful in obtaining a good supply of pods. It is well to remember when growing tomatoes that they do not require much water; they grow best on a somewhat dry soil. Too much water is much more likely to harm 1 • chi than too little. Great discretion is. de- si:-nhle when applying liquid manure and "■ -•: The soil should be dry though not raked before either is given. Doses of special Ii uid plant food should not be given till they are clearly seen to be necessary.
