Mir. Howell Coath applied, on be-half of Miss Catherine Ainsworth, the licensee, for an extension of hours at the Esplanade Hotel, Portheawl, for August 6th (to-day). iir. Coath explained that the officers in camp at Portheawl were arranging an invitation dance, and he handed in a letter from Lieut. C. M. Franklen, of the Army Medical Corps, supporting the application. Supt. Menhinick thought Miss Ainsworth should apply personally. Mr. Coath Surely that is a matter for the Bench. She sends a letter. I don't think it has anything to do with the Superinten- derrt at all Supt. Menhinick: Personally, I think it has. I should like to point out that these extension's are becoming frequent, and; if your worships grant this, I don't know where they may end. Mr. Coath Do your worships wish to hear me on that subject. The Chairman Xo. The application will bo granted. No doubt troops of all sorts wiH be coming down to Portheawl for train- ing during the summer months, and we must do what we can to make the time pleasant for them consistent with things being carried on in a proper manner. LICENSE TRANSFERS. The license of the Ship Hotel. Bridgend, was transferred from Mi's. Catherine Thomas to Evan Rees Davies, The Gate Shop, Godrer- graig, Swansea Valley. Alderman T. J. Hughes appeared in support, and explained1 that the transfer was applied, for in accord- ance with the undertaking givtn when the license was renewed. Councillor Gomer Davies, administrator of the estate of Anne Williams, deceased, ap- plied for the transfer of the license of the Garth Inn, Maesteg, to ex-Police Sergeant Griffin, formerly of Nantyffyllon. The ap- plication was granted. A CHILD ACTRESS. An application was made for a license for a child, aged 12.1 years, to perform in a play called Drink" at the Ma est eg Town-hall. It appeared1 that the usual seven days' no- tice had not been given, and the Chairman gaid the Bench had no power to grant the license. The Act was very strong on the point. ALLEGED NEGLECT OF CHILDREN. John Ford and Elizabeth Ford, 14 Albert- street, Caerau, were charged with neglecting their children, aged 15, 12, 9, 5, and 2 years. Alderman T. J. Hughes prosecuted on behalf of the N.S.P.C.C. The male defendant was not present, and a warrant was issiied. for his arrest. SAD CAERAU STORY. DESERTED WIFE'S MISCONDUCT. Mary Ha.nnah Thomas, 19 Metcalfe-street, Caerau, summoned1 her husband, David1 John Thomas, now of 60 Duffryn-road, Caerau. col- hoc, for arre,ars under a maintenance order. The order was for ICs. per week, and the de- fendant had been arrested on' a warrant, dated September 19th, 1908, when the arrears were £11 6s. 6d. The case was called' on a fortnight previ- ously, when the defendant applied for an ad- journment to enable him to take out a sum- mons applying for a variation of the order on the ground of his wife's misconduct. Mr. E. E. Davies now appeared for the hus- band, who stated! that he was not the father of a child to which his wife gave birth on 24th February last. Griffith Jeffries, registrar of births and deaths for Ystradgynlais, pmduced a register of the birth of a child of the wife, who, he said, did1 not give the name of the father. The Clerk (Mr. S. H. Stockwood) pointed out. regarding the arrears, that there was an accumulation of an additional JE22 since the warrant was issued. Mr. Davies: Technically defendant is not responsible after the time of the misconduct. The Clerk: He has not obeyed the order. and it is just a question whether that has not had something to do with the miscon- duct. The wife was called' to speak as to the ar- rears. Her husband had paid nothing under the order. She admitted misconduct, and eaid she went to the other man thinking he would make a home for her little children, as she could' hardly keep herself. Mr. Davies: When did you go to live with him ?-I did not live with him at all. I only went with him once or twice. Defendant offered1 to pay off the arrears at 10s. a week, and Mr. Davies contended1 that this was all he was responsible for. The Chairman: It would be an easy mat- ter for a man to try to drive his wife to im- morality by that means. We shall not ad- mit it. Ultimately the Bench discharged) the order of maintenance against the husband, and in respect of the arrears committed the husband for three months and two months, the sen- tc-nees to stand over if defendant paid £11 at 10B. per week.

A fall occurred, and one of the men was injured. He was claim- ing compensation. By Mr. A. T. James: Howells was an ex- perienced workman who was occasionally trusted with the work of fireman. Defend- ants told witness they got into the trams to avoid getting wet. Alderman Hughes: Did they first of all demy it altogether? Witness: Yes. Mr. James said the defendants were not a class of men who would break the rules with- out some reason. They got into the trams to avoid getting wet in' the sump. A fine of £1 each was imposed. David Lloyd. 24 Garreg-road, Pontycym- mer, rider, was summoned for neglecting to report the occurrence to the manager or tinder-man ager.

Philip May. fruit salesman, in partnership with Powell, said Reynolds accompanied him to Maesteg oil Monday, and sold los. worth of peas. He got the worse for drink, did not pay over the money received for the sale of peas. and was discharged. Defendant denied that he obtained the money by false pretences, and stated that Mr. Edmunds took the. scales oR the cart, and brought the money out. He kept. the 10s. because it was due to him for wages. May The money you received for the sale of peas came to more, than your wages. The Deputy Clerk said the prosecutor had not taken the evidence far enough, and the case was adjourned for a week, defendant being bound over to appear in the sum of 40s. MOTOR DISC AS TARGET.

AMONG BRIDGEND PEOPLE. What is best about the statements we pub- lish week after week is that our readers don't need to go out of the town to investigate them. The proof is here, among our own. people. Another well-known resident speaks to-day. Mrs. M. A. Hill, of 45 Cemetery-road, Bridgend, says: "Ever since the birth of my first baby I have suffered a great deal owing to weak kidneys. I had dreadful pains in my back, which seemed to give out at the least exertion. At the bottom of my back I always had a. dragging feeling, and my rest was much disturbe-d. at night. I also had a slight touch of rheumatism. Although I took a lot of medicine I did not get any better. Hearing so much about Doan's Backache Kidney Pins I started' a course of them, and! alrl glad to say they (fid me good, for I felt an improvement in my health after a few doses. The baekache soon disappeared, as well as the dizziness which had also affected' me. I can ruow sleep better than/1 have done for years, and am greatly improved in all ways. I have iccommended: Doan's Backache Kidney Pills to many sufferers. (Signed') ()In;) M. A. Hill."

SOUTHERNDOWN FLOWER SHOW. ♦— COTTAGERS' EXHIBITION IX DUN- RAVEN PARK. One of the chief events of the year in Southerndown is the annual horticultural ex- hibition in Dunraven Park. Locally its pri- mary interest lies in the fact that it enables the cottagers of that part of the county to vie with each other in displaying garden and other produce, while toO the Bank Holiday tripper to the pleasant little bay it provides an opportunity to combine a day at the sea- side with a visit to a horticultural show and a stroll round the spacious deer park and beautiful grounds of Dunraven Casue. Drawing local villagers and. visitors from a distance, its popularity is, therefore, never likely to wane while it is managed in the ex- cellent manner of the last dozen years. True, there was a slight tailing olr in gate receipts last Monday, but this must be attributed to a smaller attendance than usual at Scathe-n- down, due possibly to the National P'ageant and to the Territorial encampment at Perth- cawl. The number of exhibits compared favourably with those of previous shows, while the quality generally was aiso well up to the average. The iiorai section suffered rather severely from the recent bad weather, but this was compensated for by a record ex- hibition of fruit. Most of the vegetable classes were well filled with excellent produce, and the collections in various classes were especially good. The show has gained a re- putation for its remarkable exhibitions of po- tatoes, and the classes devoted to these were again the strongest in the marquee, some wonderful tubers being staged. The women folk were given several classes in which to display their needlework and culinary art, while children were encouraged by classes for wild and cultivated flowers, garden patches, handwriting, etc. The wild flower class was again the strongest in the show, bringing out 35 competitors, and a very commendable in- novation this year was a special prize for the correct naming of wild flowers, an example which might well be copied by committees of other shows. Lively music was provided by the Excelsior String Band, for the accommo- dation of whom a special tent had been pro- vided, and another attraction was a pro- gramme of athletic sports. It was expected that the Countess of Dunraven would be pre- sent to distribute the prizes, but a disap- pointment was in store in this respect, a wire being received to the effact that her ladyship was unable to leave Londjon in time to be pre- sent. The duty was undertaken by Mrs. J. M. Randall, a special friend of the show, who was accompaniedjby Mr. Randall. With Mr. 1. Wheeler and Mr. T. Hadden as the joint secretaries, it goes without saying that every- thing. passed off without a hitch. The judges in horticulture were Mr. Worgan, of Court Colman, and Mr. Hodges, of Bryngarw; MT. W. M. Richards, Dunraven Estate Office, awarded, the prizes for handwriting while the lady judges were Mrs. GaskeTl, Miss D. Booker, Miss Hooper, Mrs. Jones (Vicarage), and Mrs. David.

PENYBONT DISTRICT COUNCIL ♦ —— THE POLLUTION OF THE OGMORE. STATUTORY NOTICES TO BE SERVED ON MAESTEG COUNCIL. There were present at the fortnightly meet- ing of the Penybont District Council on Sat- urday Rev. Eynon Lewis, J.P. (presiding), Mr. T. J. Davies (vice-chairman). Colonel Turberviil, Messrs. J. I. D. Nicholl, Griffith Edwards. Thomas Davies, Hopkin Howell, W. Lewis, T. Butler, E. Morgan, T. Penhale, D H. Price, a-id J. G. Loveluck, with the clerk (Mr. R. Harmar Cox), and the surveyor (Mr. Ernest Jenkins). RIVER POLLUTION. Mr. Nicholl reported on the proceedings of the joint committee of the Penybont and Bridgend Councils, which had met that (Sat- urday) morning at Bridgend to consider the question of the pollution of the Ogmore by crude sewage which, it is alleged, enters the Llynfi near the outfall works of the Maesteg Council. The committee recommended the Bridgend and Penybont Councils to serve statutory notices on the Maesteg authority to abate the nuisance. It was unanimously resolved to serve a no- tice as recommended, and it was stated that the Bridgend Council would take a similar course at their next meeting. It was stated that an inspector of the Local Government Board proposed to inspect the Maesteg outfall works shortly, and th4 clerk was directed to request that a deputation from the Council be allowed to accompany him. On the motion of the Chairman, it was de- cided to write the Sanitary Committee of the County Council on the subject. RIGHT OF WAY? The Clerk to the Coity Higher Parish Coun- cil, writing on the subject of a right-of-way to a public well at Heol Las, Coity, stated that his Council were of ..opinion that there was a recognised public path there, one of the members stating that he had Avalked over it 35 years ago. It was stated that the tenant of the ad- joining land contended that it was an accom- modation path for his sole use. The Clerk was directed to request further particulars. ROAD WIDENING. The committee appointed to visit the road near the Bryncethin Railway Bridge, where it is proposed to carry out an improvement in accordance with the condition imposed by the County Council before contributing towards the maintenance of the Tondu to Bryncethin road, reported that they had given instruc- tions to the surveyor to prepare the neces- sary plans, specifications, etc., for the work. The Surveyor presented an approximate estimate of the cost of widening the ap- proaches to the Tydu Railway Bridge, viz., £ 55 4s. 6d., on the company's premises, and JE96 17s. 6d. on the Council's portion of the road, which, with contingencies, made a total of £ 160.—Mr. Nicholl thought the Company should be asked to carry out the improvement on their own premises, but the Clerk stated that they had definitely declined to bear any of the cost.-It was then decided to ask the Company's consent to the improvement, and to suggest that they would carry out the work provided the Council provided' the amount estimated for.—Oil the motion of the Chair- man, it was agreed to apply to the commoners for a contribution towards the cost, Mr. Lewis remarking that they ought to give the £ 100 they had offered for the widening of the bridge.

The Surveyor statOO; that, accompanied! by Mr. Eiryn Davies (sanitary inspector), he at- tended an inquiry held by an inspector of the Local Government Board at Brynmenin on the previous Wednesday relative to the appli- cation of the Ogmore and Garw Council for sanction to a loan for works of sewerage at Gilfach. As the deputy clerk of the Council was absent in London, the inquiry was post- poned for a month. PORTHCAWL RIGHT OF WAY. Mr. G. Lipscomb, agent to the Margam Estate, writing on the subject of the alleged right-of-way through the enclosure of the Royal Portheawl Golf Club, stated that he found that his statement that access had not been refused to the enclosure, was not cor- rect. The facts were these There was a sti'e leading from the Lock's Common to the Go f Club's enclosure, but this was a private stile used exclusively by members and caddies of the club. The public had access to the bridle path to the north of the club-house by means of a path leading immediately beioft* the wall of the Golf Club, and this appealed to meet the convenience of the public with- out in any way interfering with the privacy of the Golf Club. The Clerk The public have gone outstdie because they were shut out of the ether place. The Surveyor stated that siinee receiving that letter he had wuitten Mr. Lipscomb asking him. as to the decision of Miss Talbot in the matter, and whether she had an alter- native route to offer. He replied suggesting that the matter might be taken up with the Rest authorities, as the extension of the road over the common would involve a reference to them. Mr. Nicholl: The Portheawl Council want us to pull their chestnuts out of the fire for them. The Clerk stated that the. Portheawl Coun- cil were anxious to arrange for a circular drive, and this could not be done unless a right-of-way for vehicular traffic was established. On the motion of Mr. Nicholl, it was deci- ded to request the Porthcawl Council to take the matter up with the Rest Committee.
Hampstead Borough Council has decided to levy a i rate of 3s. 8d. in the £ for next half- year, making a total of 7s. 4d. for the whole yeaB, as againet 7s. 3d. last year. In response to a request of the workhouse in- ma'tes, Richmond guardians, Surrey, are giving them coffee, with bread and cheese, instead of Irish stew. for dinner on Saturdays.
TALYGARN FLOWER SHOW. 0 RECORD ENTRIES AND ATTENDANCE. The annual flower show promoted by the Talygarn and District Cottage Gardeners' As- sociation, was held on the :¿9th ult., in the pictuesque grounds of Talygarn, by the kind permission of Mr. Godfrey L. Clark, who is one of the presidents of the society.

Tudor Owen (Ash Hall), Mr. and Mrs Ashley O'Rorke, etc. The total number of entries, like the attend- ance, constituted a record, but, owing to the. lateness of the season, some of the vegetable classes were not so well filled as usual. The exhibits, were, as usual, staged in a spacious marquee, and the floral decorations were tastefully carried out by Mr. J. E. Davies, head gardener at Talygarn. The judges in the vegetable and flower classes had nothing but commendation for the quality of the ex- hibits. Special mention should be made of the magnificent exhibit of fruit and flowers by Mr. Tudor Owen, which was sold for the benefit of the show. There was an excel- lent entry in the class for hand-made quilts, in which the prizes were given by Mrs Gwiiym WiUiams (Miskin Manor). The prize given by Mr. T. Williams (Ivor Arms) to the exhibi- tor taking the greatest number of first prizes in the show was won by Mr. D.

Mrs. Clark, in acknow- ledging. said Mr. Clark and herself were af- orded the greatest pleasure in being able to assist the cottagers of the district in any way.

PORTHCAWL URBAN COUNCIL The fortnightly meeting of the Portheawl Council was held on Monday night. There were present Mr. J. L. Lambert, J.P. (in the chair), Messrs. W. J. Griffin, David Jones, John Elias (Nottage), T. E. Deere, and John Elias (Newton), with the deputy clerk (Mr. W. Chorley), and the surveyor and in- spector (Mr. A. S. Lilley). LIFEBOAT SATURDAY. Mr. Wyndham T. Comley, who is acting as local secretary of the Lifeboat Saturday fund, asked the permission of the Council to the Fire Brigade taking part in the carnival pro- cession on Saturday (to-morrow). Mr. Elias (Newton) When will the uni- forms be here? The Surveyor: I am told they will be here on Wednesday at the latest. Mr. Lilley added' that all the mem were willing to take part in the procession. On the motion of Mr. Elias (Newton), it was agreed' to accede to the request. BAND STAND. The Works Committee, which had met a. deputation from the Chamber of Trade with regard to the proposal of the latter body to erect a. band-stand on the esplanade, recom- mended the Council to grant a site for the proposed' erection, subject to the plan being approved of by the Council, and to the struc- ture being handed over on completion. Mr. Deere proposed the adoption of the re- commendation, which was agreed to. PUBLIC HEALTH ACT. A lengthy commmunication from the Home Office dealt with the proposal of the Council to put into force the Public Health Amend- ment Act. It was stated that before an Order could be granted full information must be supplied as to the character, situation and equipment of the Fire Brigade. The (secretary of State also forwarded a ,copy of a letter received from Messrs. Lloyd and Platt, solicitors, Cardiff, acting on be- half of Mr. T. G. Jones, Mackworth-road, stating that they had been consulted! with re- ference to the proposal of the Council to put in force Sections 82 and 83 of Part 7 of the Public Health Amendment Act. Their client was the owner of a plot of land, and the foreshore adjoining situated at the ex- treme end of Mackworth-road and fronting Sandy Bay. On a portion of this land a structure had been erected which, for many years, had been used' for the purpose of sup- I plying refreshments to visitors, while the foreshore immediately in front had been util- ised for the purpose of hiring bathing machines. Until they knew the nature of the regulations the Council proposed to make, they lodged their formal objection. The letter was referred to the Works Com- mittee. HOTEL VERANDA. Considerable discussion took place on a re- commendation from the Works Committee to approve of plans for a veranda to be con- structed at the Brogden Hotel. The Chairman and Mr. Deere thought it should be stipulated that the veranda should not project to a point more than 18ft. from the centre of the road, the former pointing out that the time might come when the Council would have to purchase property in order to widen that road. Mr. Elias (Newton) said the veranda would be a great improvement to the hotel, and there were other instances in the place where such erections had been allowed. If this were made the subject of a trial in the courts he did not think the Council would) stand a ghost of a chance. Mr. Griffin was of opinion that the owner of the hotel had absolute right of ownership of the land over which the veranda would be placed. The resolution of the committee, to approve of the plans, was carried. SEA WALL EXTENSION. Mr. David Jones proposed' that the ques- tion of extending the esplanade sea wall and of carrying out necessary repairs be placed, on the agenda of the next Council meeting for consideration. The members had it in their minds that this work must be .attended to during the coming winter, and he thought the time was ripe for a preliminary discus- sion. Mr. Elias (Nottage) thought the matter might be left until the end of August, and the Chairman thought it would be well that the matter should go to the Works Committee first, so that the surveyor might be instructed what plans, etc., to prepare. Mr. Deere seconded the motion, which was carried nem. con. PRINTING OF MINUTES. The Chairman said a frightful waste of time occurred at every meeting of the Council in the reading of the minutes, and he did not think it was premature to consider the advisability of having the minutes printed, the advantages of which must be apparent to all the members. Not only would, a great deal of time be saved, but much misunder- standing as to what had taken place at pre- vious meetings would be avoided. He pro- posed' that the clerk be instructed to make inquiries as to the cost of printing the minutes of each meeting. Mr. Griffin seconded. The minutes of the Council were getting very long, and it cer- tainly would be well if a more expeditious way of dealing with them could be decided upon. It was time to devise some methodl of curtailing the long hours which they spent at every meeting of the Council. Mr. Elias (Nottage) pointed out that the committee appointed to consider suggested changes in the staff had a proposal to make with regard to typing the minutes. The Chairman There is nothing in the re- solutions of that committee to that effect. Mr. Elias: It was considered by the com- mittee. The Chairman There is not a word to that effect in the report. The Chairman's proposition was agreed! to.

Fruit stains may be removed from grey or fast-coloured dresses by the use of chloride of soda. Another way to take fruit stains out of linen or clothing is to stretch the stained part lightly over a basin, and keep pouring boiling water through it from a kettle, until the stain disappears. Tea or coffee stains can be taken out in the same way. FUN AT HOME. Don't be afraid of a little fun at home. Don't shut your houses lest the sun should fade your carpets, and your hearts lest a hearty laugh shake down some of the musty old cobwebs there! TO CLEAN BRASS TRAYS. Brass trays which have become tarnished should be cleaned by rubbing the following mix- ture in with a brush, leaving it to dry on the tray for twenty-four hours, and then wiping it off with a soft cloth. Take a ilb. of whiting and add £ oz. of spirits of wine and half the quantity of spirits of camphor and household ammonia. Then stir in a tablespoonful of spirits of turpentine and mix thoroughly. TO WASH A DOWN QUILT. The following is a good method of cleaning a down quilt: First hang it on a line in the open air after shaking it thoroughly. Then place it in a tub of warm water with equal quantities of flour, cornmeal, and household salt. Rub and squeeze well with the hands, rinse in fresh water, and hang up on the line to dry. CLEANING VALUABLE LACE. Valuable lace can be cleaned perfectly by laying it on tissue paper in a bed of warm bran, and gently rubbing it with the bran until all traces of dirt and dust are removed. This is a method often adopted by many dry cleaners, and is in every way as good as chemicals, besides preserving the lace. HOW TO CRYSTALLISE FLOWERS. Flowers can easily be crystallised for table decoration in the following manner: Dissolve 18oz. of pure alum in a quart of soft water, ob- serving the same proportion for a greater or less quantity. Boil in a close tin vessel over a moderate fire; keep the solution stirred with a wooden spoon; then pour it into an earthen vessel, and suspend the flowers to be crystallised in the alum water, which should be at less than tepid heat. Let the vessel stand for twenty-four hours, beinfc careful that it is not shaken or even jarred: When taken out the flowers must bo hung up to dry. The solution must be neither too hot nor too cold, about 95deg. Fahrenheit. Ears of corn, polly sprigs, furze blossoms, and marguerites can all be crystallised. CARE OF PALMS. To preserve palms in good condition, wipe over the leaves occasionally with a small sponge dipped in a mixture of equal parts of milk and tepid water. The glossy appearance of the leaves will then be retained. TO REMOVE INKSTAINS ON SILVER. Make a solution of chloride of lime and water in the proportion of 2oz. of lime te three- quarters of a pint of water. Rub the stains with this, then wash it off at once, and polish tho silver in the usual way. TO WASH CHIFFON.. To clean chiffon, make a lather of white soap and water,, and allow it to soak in this. Do not rub the chiffon, but stir it well with the hand. then rinse in a succession of tepid waters until the last is quite clean. Dissolve a little gum arabic in half a cup of water, adding a few drops of white vinegar, and dip the chiffen in this, taking care not to squeeze or wring it, but to lay it, betwc<a| a folded cloth and to pat it dry. Lastly, irSi on the wrong side with a fairly warm irou; covered with tissue pa-peA. RENOVATING PLASTER OF PARIS. Planter of Paris that ha.s become dinty may be renovated in the feJlowing way: Melt some whiting in water, dissolve a little, isinglass in warm water, and add this to the whiting to pre- vent it from rubbing off. Stir the liquid well and apply it to the plaster.
