RATIONING ORDER, 1918. 44. THE fo-Ilowng Instruction recently issued by the Ministry of Food will probably be of assistance to the Public:- 1. The Food Controller has decided to give the public an opportunity for a free change of retailer during the fortnight from the 20th January to the 1st February, 1919. 2. The public have been informed by announcements in the Press that if they wish to change any of their retailers they should apply to such retailer: for the counterfoils deposited with them. The retailer must on iemand return such counterfoils to the cus- tomer in all cases in which the counterfoils have not already been sent to the Food Office. (Note.—Under the provisions of the Rationing Order, 1918, and Directions made thereunder, retailers are under a legal obligation to return counterfoils lodged with them as and when required, either to the customer or to the Food Committee). 3. If a retailer is unable to produce any particular counterfoil where he is under a legal obligation to do so, he will be required by his Food Committee to furnish a written statement to the effect that the customer has been registered with him for the food in ques- tion, together with an explanation as to why the counterfoil cannot be produced. 4. A retailer should, if required by the customer, continue to supply him with the rationed food in question until the end of the week in which the customer has ceased to be registered with him. After the 1st February a reiailer may not serve any customer whose counterfoils are not held by him or by the Food Office on his behalf. 5. Acceptance of New Customers for Regis- tration.—Persons desiring to change their retailers will, in exchange for their old countedoils. receive from the Food Office special blank counterfoils to be deposited with the new retailer. These counterfoils will be printed in special colours and will bear special reference numbers as under:— Food. Colour of Ref. No, of Counterfoil Counteroil Meat Green N. 73 ° Bacon Brown I\. 74 BuUer and Margarine Blue N. 75 Sugar Yellow. N. 76 Jam Red N. 77 Tea Salmon. N. 78 Lard Purple N. 80 Attached to each counterfoil will be a small slip, which must be detached by the person to whom the counterfoil is issued, and pasted over the appropriate space on the back cover of the ration book. 6. During the period, January 20th to February I st, a retailer may accept for regis- tration only the following:- (a) A person to w hom a ration book has been issued for the first time (i.e., dis- charged or demobilised soldiers, immi- grants, etc.) or a person who has com- pleted the Permanent Removals Pro- cedure. Such persons will have a new ration book with no previous entry on the retailer's space on the back cover, and blank counter foils of the present type (coloured brown). (b) Persons previously registered with an- other retailer who are taking advantage of the opportunity for a free change of retailer during the period. Such persons will produce their old ration book with blank slips pasted over the appropriate spaces on the back cover and blank spare counterfoils of the types described in paragraph 5 above. 7. The retailer must in each case when accepting a new customer see that the cus7 tomer's name and address and the serial number of the ration book have been written on the counterfoil, and he must then write or stamp his own name and address on the back of the counterfoil and on the blank slip pasted on the back of the ration book. 8. Adjustment of Supplies.-Where a retailer finds, after the 1st February, that the number of his registered customers has in- creased to such an extent that he is not able out of his existing supplies to meet the autho- rised demands made upon him by them, he should communicate with the Food Committee, who will, where they are satisfied that it is necessary, arrange for the issue to him of Supplementary Buying Permits, Vouchers, etc. 9. The first periodical return of the sale of each rationed food made by retailers subse- quent to February I st must show the corrected number of their registered customers, and retailers must be prepared to produce to ¥ie Food Office, where required', a corresponding number of counterfoils. Applications for permission to change a Retailer will not be entertained after the 1st February, 1919. Yours obediently, T. M. EVANS, Executive Officer. Ammanford Food Office, January 20th, 1919.

A sad discovery was made yesterday mornkig on the Pontyclerc railway bridge, when Mr. Richard Morgan, residing at 33. Wind Street, Ammanford, was found dead. The deceased, who was 63 years of age, and was well known and highly respected, ap- peared to be in his normal health when he left his lodgings about 6.55 a.m. for the pur- pose cf going to work at Pantyffynnon Col- liery. it appears that as the deceased was ascending the gradient which leads towards the railway bridge that he had a seizure and collapsed. Mr. John Jones, of Heol Las, Ammanford, who was proceeding in the same c -t,on as the deceased, noticed someone in front of him leaning on the bridge. As it was dark at the time, it was difficult to ascertain who was there. However, Mr. Jones proceeded towards the form, and dis- covered .]le_e("ased, who was bleeding from the nose and appeared to have expired. Mr. Jones went to call Dr. Stewart, and by the time he returned he was met by some miners who were carrying deceased on a gate to- wards his lodgings. The deceased was a sawyer by occupation, and his home wa6 at the Sexton Arms, Llangadock. Several of his sons have served in the Army, and some have been discharged. The deceased was married a second '.iII..c, and leaves a widow and several sons and a daughter to mourn their sad loss. ￼ r" <= ￼ TYCKOES. f 19 .Til, rgi T iwim—u—nro H With which is Amalgamated the I London Provincial & South Western Bank I xjxi???r?n?, 1 Open MON DAYS, 1 -30 to 3-30 p.m. I Address "RHUDBLAN," The Square, Tycroes.
