SCOUTS' CORNER. I have an excellent piecp of good news for the "Corner" this week. The scoots, the scoutmasters and the Com- mittee will be delighted to learn the good tidings. The Committee having provided two new bugles, a good Samaritan, who desires not to divulge his name, has presented the troop with a beautiful new side-drum. Before many months are oper we hope to see quite a tidy little band at the head of the troop. Such a handsome gift goes a long way to prove that the conduct of the scouts gives every satisfaction to their kind and generouQ supporters. Accounts of some good turn done by some of the boys continue to be re- lated. Out of many toid me this week I will give one only. A few nights ago, a young lady from the town went to the pictures at the Pavilion. On leaving sbe forgot her purse and left it on the seat. Soon afterwards a Boy Scout who happened to be sitting close by saw what had happened. Knowing who had occupied the seat where the purse Was left, he made off with all speed in search of the young lady, found her, and restored the purse, intact. Well-done, Willie Robinson it is a credit to the troop to have a sharp, honest little chap like you as a member. Young Robin- son's father is serving his King and Country, and it will be a comfort for him to iearn of the honourable, honest action of his young son. Honesty is a form of honour. An honourable man can always be trusted with any amount of money or other valuables with the certainty that he will not steal it. Cheating at any time is a sneaking, underhanded thing to do. When you feel inslined to cheat in order to win a game, or feel very distressed when a game in which you are playing is going against you just say to yourself, After all, it is only a game. It won't kill me if I do lose. One can't win always, though I will stick to it in case of a chance coming." If you keep your bead in this way, you will very often find that you win after all from not being over-anxious or despairing. And don't forget, whenever you do lose a game, if you are a true scout, you will at onee cheer the win- ning team or shake hands with, and congratulate the fellow who has beaten you. This rule should be carried out in ALL games and competitions among Boy Scouts. '< Members of the Committee and other kind supporters of the Scout movement will be pieased to learn that the boys are making excellent progress prepara- tory for the examination which will entitle them to be second class scouts. They evince lieen interest in Signaling and First Aid. It is intended in the near future to hold a competitive meeting when prizes will be given to those who excel in second and first class scout reqoirements. Don't forget your motto boys Be prepared."

I CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible foi the opinions of our correspondents. I TO THE BARMOUTH URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. I To the Editor. Gentlemen,— It is some time since I bad the honour of addressing you through the press—not because I bad nothing to I write about, but I thought that with terrible war going on, the heavy tax- ation (Imperial) which was and is bound to follow, you would try and save the ratepayers money, whenever possible. Now, gentlemen, you know my opin- ion of the purchase of Cellfechan Farm; it is the same to-day but the ratepayer's vote was in your favour and the pur- chase was made. Now, you gentlemen, who told us at our ratepayer's meetings that you and you alone looked after our interests, will you tell us what has this Farm of X2,300-cost to convey with mortgage, stamp duty, and the little extras. There are many ratepayers who are owners of their own bouses,and I am sure the news would be most wel- come and they would be able to judge how you have looked after their in- terest. In the month of January, 1914, the 20th I think, a Council meeting was held. A letter was read from Mr H. Haydn Jones, M.P., dealing with Coast Erosion, and recommending that nn application should be made to the Development Commissioners for a grant. May I ask how you stand to-day, with the sea cutting in 25 feet in one place, close to Marine Mansions. Enough said now. Yours obediently, I I 1, 1, MYNACH, ll I I I SERBIA'S NEED.
