On this subject Mr H, Pike j Pease, M P., Assistant Postmaster- Genera!, replying to a correspondent at Southend, states There will be no I possibility of arranging with the I Government to inaugurate a system of I excursion trains at present." A Singular Coincidence .-T he follow- ing interesting paragraph appeared in the Strand Magazine" for April "Lance-Corporal Lionel Cbarlton, of Ormonde Villas, Llangollen, who is now with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers in France, acting as a despatch-rider, for- wards home to his parents a page from THE STRAND MAGAZINE which he picked up on a highway in France whilst carrying despatches between two points on the British lines. His attention was attracted by the scrap of paper lying on the road, and he dismounted and retrieved it. It is from a number of the magazine of about eighteen years ago." and, curious to relate, bears a portrait of Master Abel Roberts, of Llangollen (son of "Dewi Clwyd," the well-known Welsh bard), a school-com- panion of Charlton's, whom he had lost sight of for many years, and who is now engaged in munition work in England, together with an account stating bow he (Roberts) bad justified a right to a place in "The Strand" by making a seh ool-at tendance record (ten years and nine months—never absent and never late) at the Llangollen Council Schools. The singular coincidence is worthy of being placed on record." The above report, refers to Corporal Abel Roberts, Gollen, Park Road, late motor driver for Mr J. N. Roberts, Inveruga. The Mussel Industry—Proposals are being made for permission to remove mussels for food during the months of May, June, July, and August this year, when their removal would ordinarily be prohibited by by-law (remarks Dr. Jas. J. Jenkins, superintendent of the Lan- cashire and Western Sea Fisheries Dis- trict, in a report issued yesterday). From the usual statistics it, is seen that there is a slighb recovery in the quantities of both sen, fish (wet fish) and shell fish landed in the district. Proposals wili be made to the committee at their next meeting to permit motor trawling" within the district, presumably for the duration of the war.

Capt. Jones is attached to the Canadian Highland Brigade, and was wounded in France in October, 1915. He joined up in British Columbia as soon as the war broke out and came over to this country with the second contingent of Canadians.

He emigrated to Canada about fourteen years ago. Promotion.—Private E. E. Roberts, The Grange, has been promoted Full Corporal, and is now undertaking duties of Section Sergeant at Bath.

On Saturday, news was received that Private Tommy Ellis Roberts, son of Mr Lewis Roberts, postman, bad been wounded in the right arm (bayonet wound) in the recent fighting in Egypt. On Sunday, news was received by Mr S. Beer, Minymor Steam Laundry, in- forming him that his son, Private S. V. Beer, bad been wounded in France, and hod been admitted to a military bospi- tal at Leeds. Local Disabled Soldiers' and Sailors' Fund.—As this terrible European Holocaust is proceeding, and as we are continually reminded that some of our brave lads are put out of action, it becomes more and more evident to us all that the time is not far distant when we will be called upon to take some practical steps to prove our indebted- ness and gratitude to them for all they suffer and do to keep the ruthless enemy from our shores. This week we are delighted to record that a generous gift of Two Guineas has been received from Mr Thomas Freeman, from N r hwich Mr Freeman—himself an old B irmomh boy, but now carrying on a successful business in England, was reminded of our effort on behalf of our soldiers and sailors by his sister-in-law, Mrs Free man, Glanmeon. By his kind and tbougbtful action Mr Freeman has set a noble example to many other Bar- mouth" Old Boys "on whom, through their own effort and ability, fortune smiles to-day. This latest gift brings the Fund at the London City and Mid land Bank to a total of R252 10s, Od. We cannot do too much for our "Boys." Nay! we shall never be able to ade- quately repay a tithe of our obligations to them. Any further sum to augment the fund will ba gratefully acknow- ledged.
WHILE IT IS DAY (St. John, 9, 4). As we commemorate out- treasured dead, Whose blood for freedom and for truth was shed, Our thoughts are raised to spirits free'd from 8lrife And passed we fondly hope, from death to life. For the soul sleeps not neath the ocean wave, Nor mid the rayless gloom that wraps the grave, But to the giver of its life must turn, As sinks the fabric of its fleshly urn. Whilst then we mourn our loved-ones gone before, To wait our coming to the further shore; Hold we the narrow path, the pilgrim's way, Seeking the right in all, while it is day. Prayerful lest shades fall ere our work be done, And the nights' sable pall succeed the sun; Faithful to each divinely guiding ray, Helpful, forgiving, kind, while it is day. THEO. O. P. EDMOND.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible fot the opinions of our correspondents. To the Editor. Sir,—Many months ago men called at my door and told me that it was my duty to forego all objections against my sons joining the Colours to defend their country. Ab the same time they vowed hat the age limit was the only bar which prevented them from joining. These men who wanted anybody and everybody to sacrifice all they had, in order to protect them, are now earnestly asked by the Government to do some work of national importance. The only obstacle—age—has been removed. I am waiting with interest to see bow these men who talk so much and do so little, will answer. INDIGNANT MOTHER. I THE POTATO ORDER. I To the Editor. Dear Sir,— I would be very thankful if you could insert the following paragraph which appeared in the Bitminghaoj Daily Post for Tuesday last, find I ask in all seriousness it there is any truth in the rumours which have gained currency in our mIdst, that similar offences are being committed by some of our own tradesmen ? "Iary Ann Griffiths, Higb Street, was summoned at Brieiley Hill, on Tuesday, for selling seed potatoes with- out authority. A girl named Nora Davies said she went to defendant's shop on Saturday for potatoes, and paid 1/6 for 61b. Police Constable Tetlow subsequently saw the defendant, and she did not know that a written authority was required. She was fined R3 in one case and ClO in the other." The above should serve as a warning to all dealers. Yours truly, RATEPAYER. ——————————— AN AGRICULTURAL WAGES BOARD FOR WALES. I To the Editor. Sir,—Part 2 of the Corn Production Bill now before Parliament provides for the establishment of Boards to deter. mine wages to be paid to agricultural workers in the United Kingdom. Section 12, speciffically provides for the estab- lishment of separate Agricultural WaQPA Boards for Scotland and Ireland. Wales. however, is to be grouped with England, and wages determined by a Board which I must necessarily be overwhelmingly Englieh in character, and which can scarcely be expected to understand the peculiar conditions which operate in the Principality. The Welsh Housing and Development Association takes the view that local autonomy in administration is essential for the proper development of Welsh rural resources, and strongly urges the establishment of a separate Welsh Board of Agriculture, with headquarters in Wales, and with Welsh-speaking Officials. At a recent meeting of the Association it was decided to similarly press for a Welsh Agricultural Wages Board, and I venture to appeal to your readers to support this demand. The Bill is now in an advanced stage of pro- gress ba b it is not yeb too late to at tempt its amendment in the direction indi- cated Individuals and associations should immediately get into touch with their Parliamentary Representatives on the matter and urge them to press an amendment securing for Wales similar treatment to that which has freely been given to Scotland and Ireland. Yours truly, EDGAR L, CHAPPELL, Secretary, Welsh Housing and Developing Association.
