TO OUR REA.DERS. ¡ It is with considerable regret that we 1 take u our pen to acquaint our readers with the fact that an alteration i-s to be mRde in the s'ze of the Barmotith Advertiser, but we sincerely trust that the kind tnda!gence which our readers li,tve ever shown will not on this occasion he withheld. Lot it, then, be known firstly to our readers that an appea.1 has been issued to a.!I printers, editors, and newspaper proprietors to exercise the very strictest economy in the use of paper. To this appea! we feel obliged to comply. Such appeals,catade at a time whan economy in every decailwiH alone help u-,totide over our naanoia! crisis, can by no means be disregarded, a,nd we feel sure tbst if we as Editor of this paper strive to respond to this appeai, our readers will second us by not withholding the patronage they have always accorded, and by con- tinuing to purchase their iocal paper as heretofore. In any case—even were this appeal not put forward-it would be di(8cu!t to issue the Bat-motith Advei-tisci- under the old conditions, for there has already set in a very great increase in the price of paper, and the increase is likely to be greater still in the days to come. But let it be clearly understood tba.t even though we propose to reduce the Barn,ioitth Advertiser to half its size, no curtailment will be made in the News Coiu.mns. It is the bulk of the advertisements, and of the advertise- ments alonp, that we propose discon- tinuing. The withdrawal of the adver- tisement columns win, f course, mean a great nnanciai Joss to ourselves, but this loss we are willing to face if we feel we can rest assured of the acquiescence of the townspeop!o in the i&suing cf the Bai-mouth Advertiser in its new form. It may be argued that under present conditions it might be more advisable to cease the publication of the Barmouth Advertiser until economic conditions are more favourab!e,but after dae consider- ntioD, we cannot but feel that a town of tb<e size and of the growing importance of Barmouth should certainly possess a weekly record of events. We feel that this view win be shared by every inhabitant who has the welfare of Barmouth at heart, and in that con- viction we do most earnestly appeal for renewed patronage and support from all who have been our readers hitherto. Their curtailed edition will, we aasure them, merely exist for the period of the war. Once this dread time has passed from U5,we bopa to issue the paper in its former size. Before we close our statement of reasons for the curta.Ument of our paper, we sbou!d lika in all sincerity to thank our readers most armly for their kindness in supporting us in the past, and to assure them that we sball deeply appreciate such support from them in the future.
BARMOUTH, DYFFRYN & DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL MEETING. I The annual meeting of the Bapmouth, Dyffryn and District Nursing associ- ation was held at the CoutMi! School, Barmoutb, on Wednesday iast. There WAS a targe attendance. The chair was taken by Mrs HoHand, Caerdeon, who in the course of a most excellntj address, gave an account of the beginning of the Nursing Movement in this district. She pointed out that the movement soon gained strength because of the unity of. a!l classes in promoting it. She expressed pleasure at seeing the Barmoutb Branch in such a nourishing condition. SECBETARY,S REPORT. The Hon. Secretary (Mrs E. D. Jones) in her Annual report stated that during the year ending December 31st, 1915, the work of the Association bad been carried on the same lines as in previous years, and no event of impor- tance bad occurred to vary its routine. The "Norse paid 1,948 visits including 76 scbooi-nursing visits, and tbe number of cases attended during the year were 92 4 operations. As usual, Inspectors from the Jubilee Institute paid two visits to the district, and subsequently the following reports were received :— Nurse did her work skilfully and well, and earned out her duties with kind- ness and sympathy. Everything seemed to be going on we! (April). Good work is being done at Barmoutb, and the efforts of the Nurse are much appreciated. The equipment is in good order." (October). During the yoar.tho Nurse undertook, for the nj[st time, the duties of School Nursing in accordance with the arrangement made with the County Education Authority. Ber "ork consisted in visiting the parents of children reported on by the School Medisa! OfGcer, and informing them of the results of his examination, and sub. sequently in again visiting them to eee whether bia instructions bad been fol- lowed. As this entaifed considerable additional work for the Narse, the Com- .mittee decided to advance hersaiary by £1 in addition to the J64 advarce made last year.. No subscriptions Nvere re- ceived from Fairbournc this year. It appears from a report of a public meet- ing be!d in Fairbourne that the resi- dents had decided to sever their con- nection with the Association. It is gratifying to notice that in spite of this fa.ct our sub&eriptions this year have only by a very tittle fallen short of those of previous years, tbunks to the efforts of the coiifctors, and to the fact that this year there had been several new subscribers. It is sincerely to be hoped ¡ that notwithstanding the increasing number of cults upon subscribers throughout the district, the claims of the Barmouth and District Nursing Association may not be allowed to suffer. The Committee desired to thank those who bad given thankofferings) and to impress upon ail who can afford to do so, the desirability of acknowledging in this way the special services of the Nurse towards them. They also wish to ¡ thank Mr and Mrs Lioyd, Minymor, for organizing a concert this year again in aid of the funds. Gifts of clothing, &c., from Mrs Castle, Mrs Biakey, Mrs J. N. Roberts, Mrs Morgan Jones, Brynteg, were found very useful. The best thanks of the Committee were tendered to all subscribers and givers of donations by whose help the work of the Association bad been so successful carried on. Arising from the report, a lengthy discussion took place with regard to the delution of Fairbourne from the Associ- ation. Two or three members from Fairbourne expressed the desire of the inhabitants of Fairbourne to break off the connection with Barmouth and join with DoigeIIey. U)timate!y it was agreed that there wish sbouid be aceeded to, and that three representaeivcs of the Barmoutb Committee should meet three from the Doigelley Committee to settle on the boundaries of the districts. The foHowing took part in the dis- cussion: The Rev. R. Lioyd Roberts, M.A., R.D., Rev. Gwynoro Davies. Rev Edwin Jones, Mr Edwin B!akey, Jubilee Road, Mr Edward Williams, Mr David E. James, Mr Peacock, and Mr R. Lloyd Jones. Mr Humphrey Jones, manager, London City and Midland Bank, in pre- senting the financial statement stated that the balance in band wae practica,Hy the same as iast ye&r although the Fairbourne subscriptions bad not bppn received. The total number of sub- scribers were only eleven iess than last year. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. President:—Mrs Biakey, Cwmglas, At'tbog.

I SCOUTS CORNER. Now that the loca! paper is curtailed, I am warned that the notes for the Corner" mnst also be curtailed. Space, however, will be reserved to record good turns by our Boy Scouts. I asked a Boy Scout the oLher day what was bis good turn for that day, and to my surprise be said I cannot find a 'good turn.' Now boys, don't go about looking for opportunities for "good turns," but be ready on the instant ior them. Good turns are very numerous and very important. For instance, think of the many good turns you can do to your Scoutmasters. Remember that all men are busy nowadays. The world needs no slacker. Remember, I say, that" good turn your Scoutmaster does to you by giving up his spare time simply to help you. So don't forget your part in the show, too. Don'ti require any rebuke on parade. Don't turn up Ia.(p. Don'b turn up untidy. Don't break the Scout Law, either in or out of the presence of your omcers. Don'byou see that by doing these "good tutna" you are doing a "good turn" to yourself? To do a "good turn'' requires piuok. Don't say that you haven't got that! Prove, in the only ways you can, that you have. ( Many little deeds of kindness and maniiness performed by members of the Barmoutb troop have been related to me during the last week. I will relate one only, in conjunction with a further appeal to grown-up people not -,&o set temptations before the boys. The other night, a man desired a seat in the gallery of the Pavilion, which was occupied by & scout. He suggested to I the boy that he should let bis cap fall, so ts to provide him with an excuse to go to the ground Bbor to sit. The boy's rei)iy, "I am a sccuh; that would be dishonest will not, I trust, be forgotten in a hurry by the man. Bravo! Rees David'you were I)i,epai-ed. In 1915 we have been sometimes thoughtless, sometimes careless. In 1916 let us make up our minds that we will be SCOUTS.
