American efforts to capture British trade are worth bringing to the notice of Labour. Here are two examples:— (1) A group of American exporters offered to supply three million tons of coat annually at a lower price than British coal, freight included. (2) An American firm offered to supply railway engines to the Italian Government at 12 per rent. below war prices, assuring imme- diate delivery of an unlimited number.

I Uandito Rural District I Council. I Mr. John Richards, Glanrhyd, prsided I I over a meeting of the above body on Satur- I day last. ROADS COMMITTEE. I The report of the Roads Committee was submitted by Mr. John Bevan, who first of all read a report of a Committee meeting held at Berringtor. Hill, Cwmtwrch. The Committee recommended that the Couicli &??ould construct a road on condition that the inhabitants pay the balance of £ 13 )0s. due from them to the Council towards construct- i.!? the Cefnbrynbrain Road. The Council were of the opinion that the Sanitary Sur- I veyor should arrange re drainage of school premises with the Education Authorities, and that the necessary work be carried out before starting with the construction of the road. It was recommended that the Council should take over Ardwyn Road. The question of fencing Brynhenliys Bridge was left in the hands of the Surveyor. The report was adopted. Mr. Gomer Harries said that the rate- payers were doing their utmost in the way of meeting the requirements of the Council' in respect to the Ardwyn Road. It had been metalled splendidly. There was no better road, nor one so well preserved and kept. One gentleman who held a building plot had undertaken to do what was required on his part, and it was their duty to remind him when he proceeded with the work. I FFAIRFACH WATER SUPPLY. The Clerk read the reply which he had received from the Llandilo Urban Council as to their charge for supplying water to Ffair- fach. They agreed to do so at S-135 per annum, it being understood that the Council should bear charges in connection with the same. Mr. W. Hopkins explained that the Urban Council would supply it from the Old Toll tGate and on to Pantladis, and the Work- house was included. The matter was referred to the Surveyor for a report at the next meeting. I WAR BONUSES. I The following notices next stood Oft the agenda: To consider the question of grant- ing a war bonus to Messrs. T. D. Davies, Surveyor for the Gross Inn District, and John Griffiths, surveyor for the Llansawel and Talley Districts, and for the officials on clerical staff." A member said there could be no war bonus now. The Clerk explained that there was for the period of the war, provided it did not exceed the scale authorised from time to time by the Local Government Board for civil servants. The Guardians had already given it, but the District Council had not. A member said that Mr. Mervyn Griffiths' salary had been increased permanently, which was better than a war bonus. In reply to the Chairman, it was stated that the clerical staff were the Clerk and Mr. D. J. Morris. The Chairman said they gave it to Mr. Morris in the Guardians, and the same per- sons came under two or three headings. The Clerk: You have not given any war bonus. The Chairman: An increase is better than a war bonus. Mr. J. Bevan: What do you mean by war bonus now? The war is over. The Clerk: It is not quite over yet. Peace has not been signed. Mr. Bevan said that to all intents the war was over. The Clerk: There are very few Authorities in England or Wales who have not granted it. Mr. J. Bevan proposed that this Council be in line with all the other movements in the country. He thought it was their duty to agree with it and pay war bonuses to their officials. The Chairman: How much? Mr. Bevan replied that they could agree as to the amount in Committee. A Committee was then appointed, on the motion of Mr. J. Bevan, seconded by Mr. Gomer Harries. Mr. Glyn Jenkins: I propose we take the Surveyor apart from the clerical staff.. Mr. J. Bevan suggested amid some laugh- ter that a special tribunal should be appointed for the purpose. Mr. John Jones: I suggest that Mr. Griffiths should attend better to the roads before he gets an increase. The workmen sometimes do not know what to do. Mr. J. Bevan: You should have looked after him before, and not bring on his weak- ness when he applies for a rise. Mr. Evan Jones, the Sanitary Inspector, wrote stating thai he withdrew his applica- tion for an increase in salary for the present. The application of Dr. Lloyd, Medical Officer of Health, was a lso referred to the Committee. Mr. Harries thought Dr. Lloyd should have postponed his application for a bit, as a new I doctor was coming to Llansawel. I COTTAGE HOSPITAL FOR THE I AMMAN VALLEY. Mr. Gomer Harries said there was a very important matter which he wished to draw attention to. It had been before the Council for years before now, but owing to the war and other difficulties it had from time to time been postponed. He referred to the pro- vl-on ci a Cottage Hospital for the Amman Valley. He thought the present an opportune time to bring it forward. The Amman Valley was an industrial area, and many cases happened in the coalfield which re- quired immediate transference to a hospital where the patient would receive the best attention. The nearest hospital now was at Swansea, and in the fast motor-car travelling by road it took the best part of an hour to get there. In the meantime, death, which might otherwise have been averted, might occur in the absence of a nearer hospital. He urged that as a body representative of the Local Government Board and the community at large, they should, in conjunction with ocher Local Authorities such as the Amman- ford Urban Council and the Cwmamman Urban Council, &c., write to the Swansea Hospital asking them to erect a Cottage Hos- pital in the Amman Valley. Mr. J. Bevan said a Cottage Hospital was badly needed. The Trade Unions had moved and taken the initiative in the matter. They had waited on the Board of Manage- ment to the Swansea Hospital. They were giving the matter careful consideration, and contemplated building a wing in the Amman Valley. They were doing everything they could to secure it. It was only a matter of time before they would get it. The Clerk said that when the matter was before this Council before, it was an Isolation Hospital they had in view. Mr. Gomer Harries said they wanted a hospital to deal with cases of emergency. Mr. J. Bevan: It is a Cottage Hospital we are going in for. Mr. E. Jones: They are building an Isolation Hospital at Swansea now. Mr. Glyn Jenkins: We can have an isolation wrard inside a Cottage Hospital, as they have in other Places. Mr. J. Bevan said it was only the moral support of the Council they wanted. If they from here supported it, they would not be binding themselves in any way. The Clerk: We should have to pay the piper? Mr. J. Bevan; No; it is only your moral support we want. We will pay for it. It was decided to write to the Swansea Hospital on the subject. METALLING OF ROADS. Mr. Gomer Harries called attention to the need of metalling the roads in the South Dis- trict. BOUNDARY EXTENSIONS. A letter was read from the Cwmamman Urban Council, stating that they proposed considering a scheme for extending their boun- dary, but before taking any I steps I in the matter they were desirous of ascertaining the feelings of the district, and he (the Clerk) had been instructed to ask if they would elect two or three delegates from the district to confer with his Council. He should be glad to hear from them if they would arrange to do so and suggest alternative dates for the meeting. The Chairman said they wanted in the Amman Valley to have the authority them- selves in the industrial area. There were many things connected with this body it was imperative to have attended to, ard he thought they ought to get these bodies to come together. Mr. Glyn Jenkins said that was a question for the Urban Council themselves to con- sider. It was quite clear what was the object of their extending their. area.

One reason why War Savings Certificates are so popular is that they are cashable on demand. You can cash one or all of your War Savings Certificates at any time by giving two or three days' notice to the Post Office. The wise man, however, will not part with his Certificates unless he is obliged to do so, for in five years the Government will pay a full £ 1 for every 15/6 invested in this way.

Our Poultry Column. During the past two or three weeks, the poultry-keeper has not had a very happy time, for with snow on the ground the fowls must be kept inside all the time. Except for the extreme South of England, this snow has been general, so that outdoor work has stood or nearly so. There is a sign now of its going, but we might even get some more yet; and the careful poultry-keeper must always be prepared for any such thing duriag the winter. In our far Northern parts they get snow covering the ground for weeks at a time, and when once it has come down it is expected to stay; and they know how to prepare. All fowls must have water, and the laying birds need it more than those which are resting, because the egg is com- posed of so much water. This is always a big trouble in frosty weather, and no matter what vessel is used, there is the danger of it bu/rstilng when a thaw sets in. For all general use there is nothing better than a plain earthenware pan or jar, for though the dust can get into it, it can much more easily be cleaned, and then is more often renewed than if it is a covered vessel. An iron trough is good, but this will freeze and burst if left too full, so that if the vessels are filled each morning and left till night they could be turned over when going the rounds of shutting up. The breeding pens need constant attention while this weather lasts if you want fertile eggs. All birds must have exercise, and though this can be provided inside the house, the breeding stock needs some liberty, which is a run out of doors and the fresh air. You must expect a great percentage of in- fertility where the birds are kept inside, and what chickens do hatch will not be so strong and healthy as If the parents had a free range. But the hens will not get far from the house in the wet and cold, nor yet in the snow, so that if fertile eggs are wanted, the birds must be kept in good condition. Now, it wil!t almost always be found that a cock which eats greedily while with the hens will not fertilise his eggs so well when he calls to his mates and yet never eats much. Such a cock must be kept in good form by the giving of extra food apart from the hens. Many big breeders have a small pen by the side of the house, into which the cock can be put at least once each day, where he can have a feed all to himself. It is this which increases the fertility and ensures a vigorous chick, whereas without such attention there might be a chick, but so weakly that- it will not last long. Whenever the snow clears the- birds should be let out; but see that they cannot drink any of the snow water, because this will cause diarrhoea. For a long time the ground will be wet and cold, so that when the birds get into the house this should be dry and comfortable. The sound roof is essen- tial; then on the boarded floor put some peat moss and chaff, in which the birds may scratch, and this will soon dry their feet. It is very bad for birds to go to roost with wet feet and "legs, all of which can be avoided if only the house is what it should be. There is every prospect now soon of a better food supply and something better in quality. One cannot expect the best wheat to be released for chicken feeding at present, but there is plenty of useful tail wheat about, which with sound oats and a few maize make up a good grain feed. The soft feed will soon change, for now there is more middlings and bran with other cereals com ing along, so that this should help egg production.
