It is stated in Teheran that a military expedition is about to start for the south of Persia for the purpose of restoring order. Fierce fighting is reported from Mexico, and it is stated that the country is face to face with a serious revolution. Many towns have been taken by the rebels, and numerous casualties are reported. The Duke of Connaught and the Royal party touring in Rhodesia had a round of sightseeing among the Hatoppo Hills, which included a visit to the tomb of Cecil Rhodes. For the benefit of our lady readers we give them the best recipe we know of for their Christ- mas Plum Pudding.

Not for the first time a mutiny has broken out in the Brazilian Navy, but the trouble seems to have no political signifi- cance. The crews of both the new Dread- noughts took possession of their ships, either killing or imprisoning the officers, and, joined by a scout, threatened to bom- bard Rio de Janeiro. A few shots were ac- tually fired, but no damage was done. In- sufficient pay and too much corporal pun- ishment are the reported grievances which gave rise to the outbreak.
TIMBER HAULIER KILLED. Crushed Under a Tree at Manafon. A sad fatality at Manafon was investigated by thf W»lehp*i»l Coroner (Dr R. D Thomas) and a Jury last Thursday afternoon. The inquest con- cerned the death of Joseph Morris, aged 33 years, a timber-haulier, living at Maesbury, Salop. The bereaved father (Joseph Morris) gave evidence identifying the body of his son, which 18Y in the mortuary beneath the Welshpool Town Hall, where the inquest waa held The story of how the accident happened was told by George Davies, Werngoch, Berriew. He said that the deceased and another man had loaded two trees on a timber carriage, when the third man went away Morris put the doga on a third tree, and witness drove the two horses on for a distance of about 15 yards till the tree was nearly on the top of the legs. The tree was butt- beavy. Morris jumped on the hind part of the carriage to make the tree balance. Witness at the same time got hold of the butt to help him. The dog slipped, and the tree fell, striking Morris somewhere n« ar the knees. Morris jumped bar k- wards into a trench, and fell over on his h k. The tree then fell across his chest, and rebon uded on to his 'stomach. Witness levered the tree off deceased with the help of a bar, and then put him in a fitting position and supported him. While in that position deceased vomitted blood. The dogs were perfectly in order, and witness attri- buted the accident to the frost in the tree, which would cause the dogs to open. Morris examined the dotfs before he put them on the tree. David Howells, carpenter, New Mills, also gave evidence, and Dr Salter stated that Morris had been badly crushed about the upper part of the body. Several ribs were broken, as was also the chest b,)ne. and he died soon after. He rendered what aid h« could. The Jury, of whom Mr A E. Bond was fore- man, returned a verdict of "Accidental Death."
Montgomery's Damping Ground. IT MAY BE AT PENSON'S TWIST. ANOTHER LETTER FROM MR ADDIE. At Montgomery Town Council, on Wednesday, the subject of the Refuse Tip figured first upon the agenda, and the Clerk announced that, as requested, he had written to Mr Addie as to what particular brick-yard he suggested should be used for the rubbish heap, and also as to the terms on which it would be let. In reply, Mr Addie had written to say that he oieant the brick-yard adjoining the Stalloe. As to the terms, he sug- gested that he might meet either the Council's Surveyor, or a Committee of the Council, on the ground, when he would do his best to arrange suitable terms. There was another letter from Mr Rd. Edwards, of Cwmwgyl Hall, in which he said he gathered from the report in the papers that the Council had decided to use the Stallo*- brick-yard. The brick- yard was in a square field, and one of the hedges belonged to him. He would keep that hedge in good condition, but it would not be good enough for protection against the rubbish. He under- stood that the refuse would be tipped into deep hmles, but, as the place was often flooded, the tins in the rubbish would be fixated off on to his land. Moreover, heaps of refuse contained poisonous matter, and he hoped the Council would give that their consideration. He failed to see what objec- tion they had to using Penson's Twist. The Mayor: With regard to the deep holes, I doubt whether the tins would float out. I think it would be best, as Mr Addie suggests, for the Committee to meet on the ground. It is rather far away that is the difficuly. I should think it would be a mile and a half from here. If we could get it within half a mile it would be much more convenient. Mr Maurice Owen: What objections are there to the Twist ? There is a direct road to it. Mr C. P. Davies: I quite agree with the Mayor that to deposit the rubbish in Penson's Twist would make the approach to Montgomery very unsightly, but I don't see why it could not be put in the others side of the road. That's the very spot for it. The Mayor: There is a stream coming down there, and the rubbish may lee carried into the stream. I believe that wlitqt- supplies the cot- tages at Sarkl^y, and, if so, it seems to me that it will be a great risk. Mr C. P. Davies There is another water supply now, sir, at Sarkley; they never use the brook water now The Mayor: I don't like the idea of putting up a rubbish tip right against the main road. I think the best thing would be for the Council to inspect the old one, then go on to Stalloe; we might go to Penson's Twist first. i Why is Penson's Twist so oalled ? Everybody knows perfectly well the spot in question, who has travelled from the railway station to the county town, and one wonders why the road should have originally been so constructed as to have such a tremendous bend, as the process of filling up the dingle could scarcely have been less laborious where the old road lay than the present direct course. From all accounts, Penson was a great jehu who could drive anything from a gig to a four-in-hand, but at this famous bend, named after him, which he had circled so many times without mishap, he met his death. Another inci- dent in the life of Penson-who was somewhat in the style of Jack Mytton, of Halston—tells how a boulder on the road greatly annoyed him. Said he to his coachman, Haven't I told you to move this stone?" The trembling servant informed his master that he had already obeyed his injunc- tions and had moved it twice. Move it again, then," returned the imperturbable Penson, But where can I move it to this time, sir ? was the bewildered man's response. Well, you can move it to h-l, if you like," said his master. Then," said the coachman, I'm afraid, if I did, that it would still be in your way."
LLANFYLLIN. TOWN COUNCIL.-There were present at the ordinary meeting of the above Council, held on Tuesday in the Town Hall, the Mayor (Mr J. Marshall Dugdale), Aldermen R. H. Jones, H. O. Jones, and J. T. Evans, Councillors W. A. Pughe, R. M. Lewis, T. Roberts, J. S. Davies, William Ellis, D. Roberts, John Edwards, and J. P. Williams, with Mr Edwards, assistant clerk.—Mr Pughe was re-appointed a governor of the University College of North Wales.—The Surveyor, in his report, stated that the steam roller had worked in the borough on the roads, and the expenditure for material and labour on the roads during the month was £47 2s 3d.-The question of the removal of the drain behind the smithy came up for consideration, and after a discussion was deferred.—Mr Pughe was appointed on the special committee in the place of the ex- Mayor.—It was resolved to erect a new lamp outside the Council school, and to re- move the lamp from near the police station to a point near the county school.
More Warmth for Paupers. DANGER AVERTED: MONET SAVED. Caersws Guardians had before them, on Wed- nesday, the report of the Committee on the Hot Water Supply. After considering the report of the Inspector with regard to the hot water supply, the Committee inspected the hot water supply apparatus at present in use. Since the bursting of the boilers some months ago that system had been rendered useless. The cooking range, which they had also inspected, was also sadly in need of repair, and would also shortly be useless. The Committee were also of opinion that the Guar- dians should put in a set of apparatus which .P would do for cooking, heating, and washing. They would thus obviate the present system of fire- grates, which were a source of great danger. The new method, they had also come to the conclusion, would also mean a considerable saving in the con- sumption of fuel. They had ascertained that a similar system as that suggested was in vogue at Wrexham, Carnarvon, and St. Asaph, so the Committee recommended that the Chairman and three of its members-Messrs S Powell, R. Bowen and Joseph Davies—should visit these places and make enquiries, and report on the system there employed. The Clerk added that he had been in communi- cation since with the Masters at these Work- houses. and in each instance the Masters had said that they had effected a considerable saving since the adoption of the up-to-date system of heating. The Chairman considered that it was necessary that these members of the Committee should go and iBspect the installations at these places, so as to be able to return and inform thp Board exactly of the position. ;-It was dangerous to defer the matter too long. Mr David Lloyd I quite agree that it will not do to defer the matter, so I move the adoption of the report. We have to face this difficulty sooner or later, and it is a very good suggestion. I move that we appoint the gentlemen of the Committe to inspect these places and see the working of the apparatus, and I believe it is a very good move on their part. Mr Whitticase having seconded, it was unani- mously agreed to adopt the Committee's recom- menaation. Mr Wilson-Jones Does the report Btate what places are to be visited by the Committee ? The Clerk: Well, two of them would have to be visited at <tny rate—St Asaph and Carnarvon. The apparatus in these two places has been in- stalled by two different firms. The idea of the Committee is that if you adopt their report I should communicate with the firms, so that they should send a representative to Carnarvon and St. Asaph to give the Committee instructions as to the working of the system One of the Masters wrote to say that he would be very pleased to give every information in showing bow it was worked, and, no doubt, if they communicated with the firms they would be glad to send representa- tives to explain the working. Mr Wilson-Jones: Can you explain the two systems. because I only know of one ? There is no n"ed that the two places should be visited. The Clerk: The principle, I believe, in each ap- paratus is the same. Mr Wilson-Junes: Yes; the principle is the same, as there is only one way of heating, and I don't see what object there can be in visiting the two places. The Clerk: I have letters trom the two Masters, if you would like to see them, The Chairman I think we can leave the matter to the discretion of the Committee.
KERRY. Jast received a fine lot of Ladies' useful Box Calf Boots, with stout soles, for Winter wear; price, 7/9; get a pair, and be comf :table.-RI EICKARDS, 30, Bridge-street, Newtown FUNERAL.—There was a representative assembly at the funeral of the late Mrs ,Brick, wife of Mr James Brick, of Cwm- trefarlo, who passed away on 17th November, aged 63 years. Prayer was offered at the home by Mr Edward Jones. At the Church and graveside the burial service was recited by the Rev T. Phillips, B.A., vicar. The remains were borne to the grave by Mr R. Chandler, Mr Frederick Chandler, Mr Ed. Jones, and Mr Pryce Thomas. The oak coffin was the work of Mr George E. Pryce, Kerry. At Reading Gaol, William Broome was hanged for having murdered an old woman named Wilson at Slough on July 15th. Dr Percy Bradshaw Isherwood, aged about 48, and his wife were committed to a lunatic asylum by the Matlock justices. It was said that the doctor had dreamed that he was to kill his wife, and attempted to strangle her, the lady agreeing that it was his duty to do so. Henry Thompson was hanged in Walton Gaol for the murder of his wife. Ellis, of Rochdale, was the executioner. The wretched man submitted quietly, and tried to meet death bravely, but he presented a pitiable spectacle. Death was instantan- eous.

POLITICAL NOTES Lord Lansdowne brought his resolutions for settlement of differences before the House of Lords, and argued that they would be quite efficacious under all circumstances. The Earl of Crewe pointed out that among the bills which would not go to referendum was one for Tariff Reform," the imposition of taxes on the food of the people. Speaking at St. Pancras, Mr Lloyd George said the Lansdowne plan ot reform of the House of Lords meant keeping democracy at the end of a long pole, so that it should not bite. Referendum meant that the party which had wealth and vested interests be- hind it would crush down democracy with the sheer weight of gold. The Lansdowne proposals were pure devices, and were in- sulting to the House of Commons. Liberals would have none of them, but demanded equal treatment, not merely between parties, but between ideas of government. By their latest demonstration the Suffra- gists have surpassed all previous efforts. On learning the purport of the Prime Minis- ter's statement in the House, some three or four hundred swept in an indignant torrent down Whitehall, in order to raid Mr Asquith's residence. The police, hastily re- inforced, succeeded in defending Downing- street from the impetuous mob, and scores of arrests were made in the course of the unseemly struggle. Meanwhile, Mr Asquith had left the House on foot, and unfortu- nately fell in with a band of baffled Suffra- gists. He was saved by the police from a worse fate than a bad mobbing, and escaped in a motor-car to the Athenaeum Club. Thither, also limping painfully, came Mr Birrell, who, encountering the enemy in St. James's Park, had his hat knocked over his eyes, and received a kick on the shin. Al- together, over a hundred and fifty women were arrested. Legislation is to be proposed enabling trade unions to include in their objects and organisation the provision of a fund for Parliamentary and municipal action and re- presentation, and to combine for such pur- poses, provided that the opinion of the union is effectively ascertained," and that no compulsion is put upon any member to contribute to the fund. Mr Churchill devoted his speech at High- bury to a plea for Home Rule and an attack on the House of Lords. For the Irish people, he declared, the sky was already brightening with the promise of the day for which Mr Gladstone waited in vain. As to the House of Lords, it had been used by the Unionist leaders as a mere party tool- wantonly, violently, and recklessly, without decency, scruple, or restraint. In the House of Commons, Mr Churchill was questioned as to the propriety of mem- bers of the Metropolitan Police being with- drawn from London for duty in South Wales, in view of the approaching elections. The Home Secretary stated that he had taken away 1,000 men, but admitted that the ques- tion of the legality of utilising them in Wales had not arisen, as none of the men who had been sent to South Wales had gone against their will." The men were receiv- ing extra remuneration, and would be com- pensated if injured, but, added the Home Secretary, I do not think any part of that expense will fall upon the ratepayers of London." He stated that he proposed to claim all the expense from the county of Glamorgan. Mr Birrell, in his address to electors of his constituency, North Bristol, says :— The issue at this election is the House of Lords. The hereditary principle having been abandoned, it is the task of the repre- sentatives of the people in the House of Commons to create a second chamber in place of the House of Lords, who have, by their votes, resigned their only title to be there at all. Close beside this question," says Mr Birrell, there is concealed the sinister figure of Protection, which means dearer food and fewer imports. The Liberal cry should be, No gambling in the food of the people. At the close of the sitting of the House of Commons on Wednesday an unpleasant con- tretemps occurred. Sir J. D. Rees, with the view of administering a last knock to the Government which he no longer supports, moved a count. Nearly all the members had gone away, and it was, unhappily, not pos- sible to secure the presence of forty mem- bers before the sands of the glass had run out, and the Speaker was obliged to de- clare that the House stood adjourned, al- though the motion for the adjournment till Monday had not been agreed to. In con- sequence of this, the House had to meet on Friday. The action of Sir John Rees in moving a count was condemned by members of both parties, and it provoked a good deal of rather heated controversy in the lobby. The count could do no possible good. It has merely inflicted a certain amount of inconvenience on several members of the House, and prevented them leaving London as early as they would otherwise have done. If there had been any idea that a manoeuvre of this kind was to be tried, it could easily have been frustrated, for there were at least ten members of the Commons in the House of Lords when the count was moved. The Postmaster-General has foreshadowed a number of postal concessions to the pub- lic, It is proposed, with the issue of the stamps of the new reign, to sell the thin halfpenny postcards and the penny letter- cards at their face value, and to supply two shllings' worth of stamps in the 2s book form without deducting, as heretofore, a halfpenny for cost of manufacture. Sev- eral other reforms in the same direction were enumerated. In the House of Commons on Wednesday (writes a Parliamentary correspondent in the Daily News '), Sir John Rees completed his recantation of the political faith he so ardently professed in 1906, when, with the full aid of the Liberal party, he was re- turned for Montgomery Boroughs. He crossed the floor, and took his seat on the Tory benches, occupying, in fact, the corner place below the Gangway, formerly held by Lord Randolph Churchill, and now in the possession of Lord Hugh Cecil. Sir John had four questions on the paper, and as he rose to put each he was greeted with loud ironical Ministerial and Irish cheers. He also had a question on private notice, and made several unsuccessful attempts to get it in before other members similarly placed. Each time he rose, Mr William Redmond stood up in his place, and when the Speaker at last called on the latest Tory recruit, the member for Clare, on a point of order," wished to know whether it was in order for a member, on the last day or two of the Session, to cross the floor against the Gov- ernment which had been silly enough to make him a knight. That Mr William Redmond's desire to "take a rise" out of Sir John had succeeded was indicated by the loud laughter which followed his ques- tion, but this was as nothing compared 1 yith the shouts which greeted the Speaker's 4umorous rejoinder, "It is never too late t to mend."
HAVE YOU A BAD LEG with wounds that discharge or otherwise, perhaps BO surrounded with inflammation, and swollen that when you press jour finger on the inflamed part it leaves the impres- sion ? If so, under the skin you have poison that if not extraoted you can never recover, but go on suffering till death releases you. Perhaps your knees are swollen, the joints being ulcerated; the same with the ankles, round which the skin may be discoloured, or there may be wounds. The disease, if allowed to continue, will deprive you of the power to walk. You may have attended various hos- pitals and bad medical advice and advised to Bsbmit to amputation but do not, for I can care you. I don't say perhaps, but I will.

Mynir gwneud yn ddeddf sicr yr hyn oedd byd y llynedd yn arfer ddoeth, nad yw y Ty i ymyryd a'r Mesur Arianol; a chyda mesurau eraill fod terfyn i fod ar ei barhad i attal, dyweder ei fod yn cael y mwynhad o wrthod unwaith neu ddwy, ond wedi oediad blwyddyn y rhaid wedi hyny, OR bydd y Cyffredin o'r un feddwl, cael rhyw ffordd i gyttuno. Feddyliwn y dylid, a chredaf y rhaid, dod i hyn o leiaf. Nid oea synwyr na rheswm fod yr ychydig hyn yn cael sefyll ar y ffordd o hyd i rwystro cyflawniad awyddfryd gwlad o bobl. Cofier hefyd mai arfer yr Arglwyddi yw sefyll yn bybyr i amddiffyn eubuddianau a'u meddianau eu hunain. Gwrthwynebu pob diwygiad a.i gwnelai yn haws byw ac yn well i'r bobl ydyw eu hen arfer cyson. Nid ydynt hwy yn newid dim, ac ni fynant i'r amgylchiadau newid ychwaith. Er eu gwaethaf hwy y medda y bobl y rhyddid a'r awdurdod sydd ganddynt heddyw. Eithr megis y bu o'r blaen y rhaid iddi fod eto. Pan ddelo y llanw i mewn rhaid i bob cadair gilio yn 01 neu fyned gyda'r lli. Rhaid i'r Arglwyddi gilio megis y gwnaethant o'r blaen o flaen llanw barn gwlad. Gobeithiais fod hyd yn nod yr Arglwyddi dylaf wedi dysgu gwers llynedd. Gadawsant i'r Mesur Arianol fynd trwodd ar ol yr etholiad. Dis- gwyliais y buasent yn awr yn cydsynio i hyny ddod yn rheol, ac y byddent yn foddlawn mwy i gadw eu dwylaw oddiar y mesur hwnw. Ond ym- ddengys nad ydynt ddim doethach eto, felly rhaid yw dod at y wlad drachefn i ofyn pwy sydd i lywodraethu—y Ty dewisedig gan y miliwnau pobl yntauy Ty lie yr eistedd ch we chan wr heb eu dewis gan neb. Y mae y Prif Weinidog, a'u gydswyddogion, alwyd i lywodraethu gan fwyafrif cynrhychiolwyr y bobl, wedi glan flino ceisio cyflawni arch y bebl a methu oblegid fod yr Arglwyddi yn benderfynol i rwystro pob mesur er gwellhad. Yn awr y cwestiwn yw a gant hwy barhau i atal yntau a roddir atalfa arnynt hwy. Tebygaf nad oes gan Gymru ond nn ateb yw roddi i'r gofyniad yna ac y gwelir Cymru eto yn unllais a phob un o'i chynrychiolwyr o Gaergybi i Gaerdydd yn mynegi yn Llundain mai barn ddigamsyniol Cymru yw,—Trech gwlad nac Arglwyddi. Daw Maesyfed a Bwrdeisdrefi Din- bych i'w lie yn ol yn y cor mawr-bydd Cymru nnwaith eto yn un, heb neb yn tynu yn groes. Daw y Rhyddfrydwyr yn ol wedi eu grymuso mewn rhif ac yn eu penderfyniad i symud yr hyn sydd yn atal. Yn y flwyddyn nesaf dechreua cyfnod newydd yn hanes Prydain—cyfnod gwell a goleuach nac erioed o'r blaen. Yn unol a'n dymuniad, eithr o'i wirfodd ei hun heb debygaf i neb ei ofyn ganddo, dewisodd y eyn-aelod gilio o'r lie a ddaliodd er 1906 fel cynrychiolydd y Bwrdeisdrefi.

LLAWRYGLYN. DEATH OF A NONAGENARIAN.—The death has occurred, at the age of 92, of Mr Robert Pugh, Dolbachog, Staylittle. Mr Pugh was well known in the surrounding districts as an admirable example of hospitality and kindness to all grades. Interment took place at Llawryglyn Cemetery on Friday, the 25th inst., when the Rev. J. O. Jones, Graig, officiated. LITERARY AND DEBATING SOCIETY.-The first meeting of this. society was held at the C. M. chapel, on Tuesday evening. After the inaugural address had been delivered by the President of the Society (Mr. D. Jones, Neuadd), an interest- ing an instructive paper was read by Mrs Davies, Glandwr, Trefeglwys, on Ann Griffiths and her hymns." A good number of hymns were sung at intervals during the reading of the paper. A solo was rendered by Miss Evans, Tynewydd, and a quartette by Mr T. Rees' party. It is expected that the new Village Hall, which ought to prove a great acquisition to the district, will be opened before Christmas.
Crime in Montgomeryshire. SHORTAGE IN THE POLICE FORCE. At the meeting of the Police Committee, on Friday, at Newtown, with Mr R. Lloyd in the chair, the Chief Constable submitted the following returns of offences for the quarter ending September 30th — The number of indictable offences re- ported was 10, the number discovered 8, and 10 persons were proceeded against for the same, 5 of whom were committed for trial, 1 put on probation, and 4 summarily con- victed. There is a decrease of 10 crimes as compared with the corresponding quarter of last year, which are of simple larceny. The value of property stolen was £ 1 10s 7d, and recovered El Is lid. The number of persons proceeded against for non-indictable offences was 203. Of these 31 were discharged, orders made on 11, bound over 12, and 149 convicted. There is an increase of 2 in cases of drunkenness, and 4 in local taxation cases, as compared with the same period of last year. Of those proceeded against 172 were natives and 31 were strangers. The police seized 5 stray dogs during the quarter 4 of these were returned to the owners, and 1 destroyed. The police noted 6,037 persons at the com- mon lodging houses and casual wards at the Workhouses, this being an increase of 697 as compared with the same quarter of last year. During the first three quarters of this year I ordered proceedings to be taken against 60 persons under the Local Taxation Act, viz., 1 for using armorial bearings, 4 for killing game, 5 for selling game, 9 for using carriages, 13 for carrying guns, and 28 for keeping dogs-all of them without licenses. 415,000 SHEEP DIPPED: £ 20 TO THE POLICE. During the second dipping period, which commenced on 1st September and ended on 31st October, the police witnessed 415,022 sheep being dipped. The allowance to the police will amount to £ 20 12s. With the last issue of the police clothing, Messrs Dolan and Co.'s contract expiired and of the new applicants, Messrs Pearson and Huggins' tender has been accepted. Police Constable David Hamer, who is Inspector for this county under the follow- ing Acts-Weights and Measures, Food and Drugs, and Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs, is no longer available for police duty, as the whle of his time is taken up in work- ing the above Acts. It is therefore requested that his place may be filled up in the force by an extra constable. The Committee is aware that the duties of the police have recently been heavily increased by the Local Taxation Act, the Diseases of Animals Act, Sheep Dipping and various Orders of the Board of Agriculture, and for the last 18 months we have been working one man short.
CAERSWS GUARDIANS. Despite very disagreeable climatic con- ditions, Caersws Guardians mustered in goodly numbers on Wednesday, when the board room was occupied by the Chairman (Mr R. Evans), Vice-Chairman (Mr Pryce Pugh), Mrs D. H. Lewis, Messrs D. Lloyd, R. Hamer, Joseph Davies, Woosnam-Savage, j J. P. Francis, R. Edwards, J. Gethin, E. Morris, R. B. Wilson, Matthew Wilson, E. Rees, W. Morris, E. Lewis, John Powell, R. Bowen, T. Whitticase, Samuel Powell, and Pryce Wilson-Jones. The Clerk (Mr C. T. M. Taylor), Relieving Officers Lewis, Wilson, and Owen, were also in attendance. A letter was read from Mr J. E. Tomley stating that he had been directed by the Welshpool Pension Sub-Committee to in- form the Board that many persons over 70 years of age who at present were in receipt of relief were hesitating whether or not to apply for the old age pension for fear that they might thereby lose the services of the Poor Law medical officer. His Committee hoped that the Guardians would allow the services of the medical officers to continue. If' they decided to allow it, then they hoped that they would communicate through their relieving officers to the persons interested. The Chairman I don't think it will make any difference to us, as we have the officers already, and in any case we should have to pay them. Mr Wilson-Jones It certainly is a very humane suggestion, and it will very much help these people going out. Mr Whitticase moved that the recommen- dation be adopted, and having been seconded by Mr D. Lloyd, it was carried unanimously. The Chairman I think it will be a great relief to them. The Clerk I think that this has already been done, as I believe most of the people have been informed. We are doing this now, and I don't see much difference in this from the case of those who have come into the house and are medically attended. Mr Joseph Davies But you don't think the medical men will make any objection. The Clerk If the relieving officer gives him an order he cannot raise any objection. The Chairman He cannot complain be- cause we are not putting anything more on him. The Clerk announced that a lunatic pauper who had once lived at the Lower Common, Kerry, and had for 29 years been living in Bicton Asylum, had died at the age of 87. He entered Bicton in 1881, and had never left, and he was the oldest pauper lunatic from Montgomeryshire at Bicton. The date of his death was November 10th. Mr Wilson-Jones He must have been a great expense to the county. The Clerk next read a letter from Mr C. S. Pryce, clerk to the Forden Guardians, asking the Board in the event of Forden Workhouse being turned into a lunatic asylum, whether the Board would be pre- pared to take in a number of their inmates, and on what terms. Mr Wilson-Jones This is rather an im- portant question, and I feel that possibly we cannot very well go into the matter to- day. I believe, if you agree to a certain proposal, there will be a special meeting called in a fortnight's time of this Council. I think if a small committee were appointed to go into the matter it will come to that, and we shall have to take a number of Forden paupers. I think it would be the wisest course to be taken now. Mr Joseph Davies seconded. The Clerk Might I suggest that we refer it to the Asylum Committee which we ap- pointed as a deputation to the County Asylum Committee. This was agreed to, the members of the committee being the Chairman, Messrs S. Powell, Joseph Davies, M. Wilson, and P. Wilson-Jones. The Clerk I have to report the death of our Treasurer, Mr Griffith Griffiths, and as you know that sad event took place on Saturday last. We are at present without a treasurer, and I thought it best to at once communicate with the Local Government Board, as we are in duty bound to report every resignation or death. I have seen the acting manager, Mr Davies, and he has consented to fulfil the duties of treasurer until the permanent appointment has been made. He told me that he thought it un- likely that a permanent manager would be appointed until a month's time had elapsed. The Local Government Board have since written to say that any temporary arrange- ments which have been made are not neces- sarily subject to the sanction of the Board, but that under the present circumstances it would be advisable for the acting mana- ger to be temporarily appointed. Mr Wilson-Jones I think at this stage that it would be advisable to pass a vote of condolence with the relatives of our late treasurer, and he has been a very good treasurer, too. That is the least we can do to show our sympathy with the family, and I move that that be done. The Chairman seconded, remarking that the death of Mr Griffiths had been very sad and sudden. The vote was carried, all the members standing. The Clerk announced that he had been asked to bring before the notice of the Guardians an accident which had happened to the inspection well in the yard. It was rather a serious matter and rather danger- ous. Some of the Guardians had seen it, and the Master had been instructed to have it fenced in. The whole well had given way to a depth of thirty feet. On the motion of Mr Samuel Powell, it was decided to immediately direct the at- tention of the Surveyor to the matter, and have it repaired forthwith.
Injustice to Llanmerewig. To THE EDITOR OF THE EXPRESS." Sir,—I wish Mr Richard Jones had dealt with what I said, and less with what I think. I did not say anything in regard to the building of Cefnycoed School, nor did I say about being a manager of Dolforwyn School. Now Mr Jones says there are five children attending Cefnycoed School from Llanme- rewig. When a ld in the £ was put on the 4 above parish he did not know if there were any children going to attend Cefnycoed School from Llanmerewig or not (unless they were canvassed beforehand). Besides, if parents think fit to send their children to a school which is further away and a worse road, it is no business of ours. We have a school for them. I saw the announcement in the paper inviting all interested to attend a meeting at Kerry (but no leaflet), but did not think for a moment that it would touch Llanmerewig. Therefore I was not inter- ested, and did not attend. Now, sir, there are a few questions I should like to ask Mr Jones. Why was the Parish Meeting of Llan- merewig not asked to consider the matter in the same way as the Parish Councils of Llandyssil and Kerry were r ked by the County Council ? We have h ird a great deal about popular control. Wi.y was Llan- merewig not asked to appoint a manager ? Or join with Llandyssil and Kerry when they appointed managers ? So you see I am protesting against paying extra rates to a school which we (Llanmerewig) can do without, but if we are bound to pay we ought to have a manager to represent us. I may add it is my misfortune not my fault if I am slow.—Yours faithfully. Nov. 23rd, 1910. J. G. MILLEB.
