I CRICKHOWELL POLICE GSSJRT On Wednesday last. before Major the Hon. W. Bailey and Air E. Pirie-Gordon ¡ —Gomer Morgan, of Standard street, I Crickhowell, grocer, was summoned on three ultaives against, the Canoed Fish (Retail and Distribution) Orderg-(I) fat unlawfully selling a tin of Nor- wegian Sild in excess of the maximum price (2) for unlawfully offering a tin of salmon for l/2, being also in excess of the maximum price, and (3) for not having a price list posted in a conspicu- ous position so as to be -visible to cus- tomers. Mr Careless, of Llandrindod Wells, appeared to prosecute on behalf of the Ivlinistry of Food. Wm. Evans, Inspector of the Ministry of Food. Cardiff, said that on the 5th June last he called at defendant's shop between 2 and 4 in the afternoon. He saw Mrs Minnie Morgan, wife of the defendant. He asked for a tin of sar- dines and she produced a i tin of "Norwegian Rild," for which she charged him 1 s. He then asked for half a tin of salmon and she produced a tin of Royal Ensign Brand. It was not marked Grade I. He asked the price she said 1/2. The control pi ice was 1/1 and was now the same amount. The maximum price list of fish was not ex- hibited in the shop. He then disclosed his identity to her and told her the con- trolled price of sild was 10id., and as to the salmon he said he would give her the benefit of the doubt as to its being Grade I or II; if the latter the maxi- mum price was 9d. Mrs Morgan said she did not know the control price or that the prices had to be exhibited. Cross -exam in ed by defendant He did not purchase the salmon, and the ex- planations offered by his wife and assist- ant were made after he had disclosed his identity. Defendant on oath said as regarded the sardines sold, he did not know they were controlled. He had five different lots there and he believed only two sorts were controlled. The sardines in ques- tion cost him 10/9, and if he sold at 10d he would sell at a loss. As to the salmon, he did not know whether it was Gride 1. or II. He wrote to the firm and produced their reply enclosing a credit note of £ (> Gs. When he found it was Grade II. be- returned it, being unsaleable in Crickhqwell. His wife assisted in the shop when he was out in the country and it was she who saw the Inspector. He had told her to sell all sardines at Is. a tin, the same as they cost him in April, 1918, as they had been in stock a long time and he wanted to get out of them. Cross-examined by Mr Careless: There were various kinds of fish called sardines. He knew he must not call sild a sardine. The invoice produced was not the in- voice of the sild in question, but of a true sardine. He did not know when he bought the tin of sild produced. Mrs M. Morgan, wife of defendant, said that when'the Inspector came in he asked about the salmon. She said she did not know the price as a matter of fact she mentioned no price. Witness asked her assistant Miss Huxley and she said the salmon had only come in that morning, that a tin had not been sold and that she did not know the price. She did not remember mentioning the price of 1/2. Cross-examined by Mr Careless When the Inspector came he first called for sardines and when she sold him a tin he asked for salmon. She did not remem- ber placing a tin in his hands and was quite sure she did not do so. She saw the Inspector writing in his book, but -did not know what he wrote down. She had not seen him before and did not know him from an ordinary customer. She took the salmon down because he asked her for it. She did not remember asking him 1/2 for it, or his asking the price of it. He told her, he did not know the price himself. Mabel Huxley said that when Mrs Morgan. brought the salmon down she asked her if she knew the price and she said No it only came in this morning." Mr Morgan told her not to sell the salmon as the price was not fixed She did not hear Mrs Morgan mention 1/2 to the Inspector. Cross-examined by Mr Careless Mrs Morgan's evidence was she thought quite correct and she agreed with it. She did not know when Mrs Morgan spoke to her that the gentleman was an Inspector. She could not sw.ear that Mrs Morgan did not mention the price of 1/2. Defendant was fined £ 1 in respect of each charge and ordered to pay the costs v of the prosecution. Gerald Wilcox, High street, Crick- howell, grocer, was summoned for selling a tin of Norwegian sild in excess of the maximum price, and also for neglect- ing to have a price list posted in his shop visible to customers. Mr Careless prosecuted on behalf of the Ministry of Food. Inspector Evans said that on the 5th June last at 5 p.m. he entered Mr Wilcox's shop in the afternoon and he asked defendant for a tin of sardines. He was supplied with a jib. tin of Norwegian sild and was charged a l/ the control price being 10 Jd. He had a price list of canned salmon exhibited in the shop, but Norwegian sild was not mentioned in it. He disclosed his identity and he said I did not know they were controlled." Cross-examined by defendant I do not say you offered me the tin as sar- dines they were sold to me as Nor- wegian sild. The invoice produced is in respect of Brislings," which is distinct from sild.

WOMEN'S WM WORK Thanksgiving Service at the Priory Church. At the Priory Church. Brecon, on Sunday, a. scrvicr; cf thiinkrr'vi: war, held for the work of women during the war. There was a large congregation including representatives in uniform of the several V.A.D. detachments, land workers, members of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps and Girl Guides There were also present Col. J. Going, D.S.O. and troops from the Depot S.WB. The Bishop of Swansea, preaching veii.iV x unto you wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done be told for a memorial of her." The words, he said, quite legitimately applied to things that had happened nineteen centuries after the conditions which prevailed in the quiet home of Bethany. Whenever men took in hand to record the tremendous events of the last five years, it would be true to say that the record would be hopelessly incom- plete unless it iucluded the memorial of those things which the women of this and other countries had suffered and achieved. They were gathered that day to give thanks to God for all that was accomplished, for the sacrifices made and for the gifts consecrated during the last five years by the women of our land. They welcomed that morning represen- tatives more especially of the three great departments in which women found their work during the war-the Land 'Army, the Y.A.D.'s., and W.A.A.C.s. who achieved great things in sustaining the war and securing the victory. They were but representatives of countless others who in many other directions gave the same spirit of service and shrank not from the same sacrifice. Before the war, women sought to establish their position and recognition of the position by means controversial, and it was instructive to remember that the things withheld in l days of controversy were givenwitlil both hands at the call of sacrifice. The position of women in our country, what- ever else might betide it, would never go back from that which had been estab- lished during these great years. Those organisations of which they were so proud throughout their County and town, and the members of which had made so high a contribution, were only .part of the great sum of work that women generally had contributed. The ¡ example of this spirit would be wanted 'I in the high causes still awaiting them, and whilst they gave thanks for the opportunity so splendidly used let them pray that those who so consecrated them- selves to the great things in the hour of their country's extremities might ever be placed and consecrated in the further service needed.
-L. LLANGAMMARCH WELLS. Wedding.—Mr Evan Rees Jones, son of Mr and Mrs Jones, Bridgend, was married to Mrs* Hall, Radcliffe, I near Manchester on the 21st of August. The marriage took place at Radcliffe, where Mr Jones has been employed since his release from the Army Mr Jones has been home but very little since he volunteered in 1914, He has been twice wounded and once gassed and his state of health caused some alarm at one time but he has picked up wonderfully and looks well. Naturally, he thought the best place to keep his honeymoon would be Llangammarch where he is so well known and so highly esteemed. The happy couple received a splendid recep- tion from their friends here. They have now returned to Radcliffe with the best wishes of all for a happy and prosperous future go with them. Sale of Work.—The annual sale of work was held at the Church Institute on Wednesday, Aug. 25th. This has been carried on for many years, and, organized by the Rector and Mrs Evans it has been invariably a success. This year again the proceeds amount to between 160 and Y,70, which will be devoted to Our Heroes Memorial Fund." A band of willing lady church helpers, have, through their sewing Guild and otherwise, done wonders for the Church and for the boys." In a small place like this, it appears almost in- credible that such results could be obtained, but the Rector (with Mrs Evans) always succeeds in whatever he undertakes. A large number attended this year. The stalls contained useful and ornamental articles which obtained good prices. The stall holders were :— Guild, Mrs Phillips fancy, Mrs Jones (Nythfa).; china, Miss Evans and Miss Jenkins ice cream, Miss Bennett flannel, Miss Jones (Llandebie) baskets, Mrs Edwards toys, Mr Jones (Rectory) cake, Miss Jessie Price fruit, sweets and flowers, Mrs Morris beads, Mrs Edgar Williams Hoop-la, Mr S. S. Davies shooting; Mr Edgar Williams tea tables, Mrs Thornhill (Garth) and Mrs Price (Garth), assisted by Mrs Ball, Mrs Taylor, Mrs Joseph, Mrs Jones and Mrs Adams. Mr Lewis, Tafarnpridd, rendered valuable help in the prepara- tions. A guessing competition conducted by Hilda Joseph and Gwyneth Hughes proved a popular item, the prize being won by Jack Joseph and another. A raffle for a set of china and a bowl was won by two visitors. Piscatorial.—Major Buckley Roderick, Coldstream Guards, who is staying at the Cammarch Hotel, succeeded in 7 days fishing in the waters owned by Miss Price, in catching 65 fine trout.
