I Llandovery Gossip. I [By CIW BOWDDWR. "] The fate of Llandovery Workhouse is still in the balance. Mr. W. Thomas, Caio, was not present at last Friday's meeting of the Board of Guardians. So it was decided to adjourn the discussion on the advisability of closing it for another month. Ald. Watkins has not yet entirely lost hope. He gave it as his opinion that the time is not yet ripe for closing the Institution. The debate, when it does take place, is pretty sure to be interesting, for the champions pro and con are able and forcible speakers, and none more so than the veteran, who leads for the negative. The local Branch of the N.U.R., at their meeting on Sunday, decided not to run a candidate all on their own for the Town Council at the November election. But they -r e l ect ion. But they were addressed by Mr. James Price, Cwm- gwyn, an aspirant for municipal honours, whose views on questions that are engaging the attention of the Council at the moment and those looming ahead met with general approval. At the close, he answered a num- ber of questions, including that of the re- election of Aldermen. He is against the principle, and instanced the stand he had taken in regard to co-option at the Board of Guardians, of which he is a member. The retiring Councillors, all of whom, I believe, will seek a renewal of the confi- dence of the burgesses, are Messrs. H. Havard, Ben Jackson, Daniel Lewis, and David Jones, Upton House. Other names I mentioned as candidates include that of Mr. Jones, Star Supply Stores, and Mr. James Price, as already mentioned. We are in for a warm time in the ancient borough from now on to the 1st of November, anyhow. There will, no doubt, be public meetings, at which-candidates will be invited to ex- press their views. The old 'uns will be invited to give an account of their steward- ship, and will probably come in for a little heckling. The young and untried will, if they follow the lines of the past, make pilgrimages into the future, loading their pro- gramme with fair promises—some impossible of achievement. The annual leport of the Medical Officer of Health to the Rural Council is not very cheerful reading. The infantile mortality, although slightly lower than last year, higher than for the whole of England and Wales. --T,leTe is a scarcity of trained mid- wifery nurses in the rural area. Even if it were only Health Visiting (says the doctor), it would materially assist mothers in the proper feeding of their infants. The general mortality was the highest recorded for many years—21.8 per 1,000. Residence in the country is not, at any rate so far as this locality is concerned, as many would fain have us believe, conducive to health and longevity. Whilst the influenza epidemic in the urban area was slight so far as mortality was concerned, it claimed no fewer than 21 victims in the rural. There were 13 deaths from pulmonary tuberculosis. This is most unsatisfactory. The influenza epidemic has strongly emphasised the need of j' housing reform. Even the general public were amazed at the conditions under which some of the people lived. During the influenza epidemic we had from 4 to 11 j people in the same house down with this disease in bedrooms with no fireplaces and windows not made to open. In two-room cottages with earth floors and zinc roofs, is it surprising we had 13 deaths from phthisis, 17 from cardiac disease, which in every case originally arise from rheumatism due to the i housing conditions? Very few of these pouses are provided with a water supply, except water in an exposed well or stream." During the housing enquiry, a case was men- tioned where the accommodation was so wretched that, in the case of a death from influenza, the corpse had to be placed in an outhouse pending interment. There are scores of farmhouses scattered over the country without lavatory accommo- dation and other requirements one would ex- pect to find in a civilised country, where women form a portion of the occupants and the common decencies of life call for observ- ance. Your ,rollicking farmer friend will tell you that, as in the days of his ancestors, the open fields are good enough for both sexes.
"The Second Coming." The above interesting subject is the basis of a series of special addresses at the Arcade Buildings, Ammanford. On Sunday last, Mr. J M. Thomas, Llanelly, dwek on the neces- sity of the personal return of Christ to fulfil the promises of the Bible, which had been unfulfilled at His first coming. The historical evidence of Christ being an indelible fact on the page of history proved very interesting. Mr. Russell, the well-known Swansea lec- turer, speaks to-night (Thursday) on The Signs of Christ's Near Return," while Mr. Chidzoy, of Swansea, is advertised for Sun- day (D.V.) to give an address on The Coming Reign of Chrrst."
Local Wedding. I At Moriah Chapel, Brynamman, on Satur- day, a very interesting wedding was solemnised, the contracting parties being Mr. David Oscar Griffiths, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Griffiths, Glyn Road, an ex-sailor- stoker, who did three years' service in many seas during fl-c -md Miss Gwen Owen,. daughter of Mr. and iVlrs. Rees Owen, Min-y- Mynydd, Mountru.. Road. Miss Ann Owen (sister of bride) a led as bridesmaid, while Mr. Benjamin Griffiths (brother of bride- groom) was btisi aan. After the ceremony, wl-Lich < aned by the Rev. Rhystyd Davies, the happy pair otored to Aberdare to spend the honeymoon.
Our Poultry Column. POULTRY WORK IN THE YARD. Even the poultry-keeper is subject to the changes in the weather, though if he has the birds all under the intensive plan they will not suffer so much. It is fowls which have only a small house and outside run which feel the rough weather so much, because they must be fed outside, and have only the house in a storm for shelter. When this is small, the house soon becomes foul, and then the birds suffer in health and quickly go off, un- less attended to at once. Some of the old birds are not moulting as well as usual, and seem slow in growing the new feathers. The older the fowl the longer it takes, and as a rule they start later in the year; hence the winter is here before the full plumage has grown again, then the bird is late coming on to lay again. Those which are slow in feathering up should be examined for any isnect pest, as this sometimes causes bad and slow moulting. In any case, while the bird is in the hand, dust well with insect powder, which will destroy any pests left on and keep away any which might otherwise find a rest there. Occasionally the bird will go light during the moult, the reason being that with the losing of the feathers there is a chance of taking cold; then in growing the new ones it is such a drain upon the consti- tution that the system cannot stand it, and the bird wastes away. All the slow moult- ing ones should be put in a wann rough house free from any draught, whfre they can be specially treated. To assist the consti- tution, give some tonic in the water or food. It can be given in capsule form, but that means catching each one separately, and it is a good deal of trouble ^if there are many. Should any have got down very much and be in poor condition, this is the best method; bu' otherwise they can all be treated alike in the food or water. When the birds are eating well the food is easy, but if a fowl is ill it will drink; then the best medium for giving any treatment. Very often a slight tonic is the only thing necessary, and some form of iron can be used which will not make the food taste much, that they eat it readily. There are some excellent powders on the market which save trouble, and these consist principally of iron and gentian with some nice spice to. give it a better flavour. The iron strengthens, while the gentian merely creates an appetite. On a dry bright day you can give a mild dose of sulphur, a teaspoonful to sit birds mixed in the soft food, and you can then add a little pure sulphate of iron to the drinking water. The poultry-keeper will notice the change ot the clock, for it has cut off an hour at night and made it seem dark much earlier. Of course, it has given the time to the mom- ing, and the birds should all be given their first feed before breakfast, and then this gives a chance to get on with other work during the day. A successful poultry-keeper is no eight-hour day man, for while he is cut off shorter during the winter, he must just keep on during the summer when the daws are long. However, now is the slack time, and h? must get on during the morning, or he will find it dark and nothing done. To help on with the morniing's -wcr': all the food can be madeleady the h at before. It is quite a common practice to feed nard grain in the morn<Ï!r and soft food at night, but this as to prevent any delay first thing Hen the man migL Le • for '-ork. and is partly the reason \"hy dry maih has become so popular. Now roost early, they need some food 'hat will last longest in the svstem, and hard Q'T'l,i,n "npets this need, whilst in the morning a diet which will I.IOaTrsh .ho h..1y "id k:-ep the body up to its noru.al heat; thus the soft mash will do this. TnLje is noth-Vg better than cooked or partly-coo, pd od to grow size, and a I meal scalded with boiling water will give this, though it can be mixed at night and then put in a cooker ready for the morning meal; but no food should be given hot, only just warm or chilled.

Liandovepy-Boapd of Guardians At the monthly meeting of the above Board of Guardians on Friday, presided over by Mr. Daniel Lewis, ,Ynysybordi, Mr. D. Davies, Rhyblid, said that the suggestion made by the Board of Tr„Je that this body should insist on all contracts that all articles should be of British make was one that they ought to adopt with cpen ?ms. AL! T. Watkins gave notice of motion on Al,! T. Watkirs gave notice of motion on T', tJoarcii, Wiio are without the services of a resident skilled nurse at the Institution, decided, s\' ->~f 1,-pprovaI of '< Nlinist- 1 to retain the service of ML. Rees, z. i5s. a week, or 2s. C p- visit if the number were two daily. Ald. Watkins thought they had been for- tunate in s Mrs. Rees' services. It was deeded to support the resolution of the Machynlleth Board of Gu&Td,*ans -argin,; the Government to legislate with the object of il; creas.ag the grant towards the mainten- ance of lunatics from 4s. to one-half the cost, which now stands at from 21s. to 28s., whereas it was only 8s. when the Local Government Act of 1888 was passed. HALF-YEAR'S EXPENDITURE. i he Clerk submitted his estimate of expen,. diture for the half-year ending March next, Lowillng 12,527. leaving I a balance to make up of £ 1,026. This would necessitate a call of 5d. in the £ which was a halfpenny above the last call. They could not, he said, expect it to be otherwise when the cost of maintenance of pauper lunatics, indoor and out paupers and everything else had gone up so much. The call within recent years had never been below fourpence. Some of the older members said they re- membered the County Rate at 4d. The Clerk: That was in the good old days. The estimate was adopted. CLOSING THE WORHOUSE. Mr. W. Thomas (Caio) motion to con- sider the advisability of closing the Work- house was adjourned for a month, as he was unable to attend. Ald. WKatkins: I don't think we are ripe to make any change at present. REGISTRARS' FEES. With regard to applications from different Registrars for increases, the Clerk pointed out that they could only make up the differ- ence between what the fees were now and in pre-war days. Unfortunately, the regulations did not take into account the high cost of living. Mr. D. Gwynne: Llangadock and Llan- sadwrn are two deserving cases. It was decided that the Clerk should work out the average fees for the three years pre- ceding the war, and that where there was a diffrence it should be made up. OUTDOOR RELIEF. The Relieving Officer reported that the number in receipt of outdoor relief for the week ending* October 3rd was 79, cost JL26 2s. corresponding period last year 83, cost £ 22 13s. October 9th. 79. cost £ 26 2s.; corresponding period last year 83, cost S22 13s. 6d. ,I i. IS ER'S REPORT. The Master reported that divine services had been held by the Rev. Lemuel Jones for r 1 ,"11 Congregational Church, and the Rev. H. Ifor James, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Chapel. Prayer meetings had also been held. INMATE'S FURNITURE. Dunug the discussion of the relief lists, the Master reported that an old lady who had been brought to the House in a very bad stale had died. She was possessed of a lot of furniture and 32&. in money. A relative had bun hf- and borne all the expenses. He inp!-ed for the frraituie aid clothes. Aid. v/atkins: As regards the money, I don't think we can do h "ter than adopt the usual course-that"; amount be credited to the Union account. As to the furniture, he suggested that the application of the relative who had been very kind to her should be acceded to.
OUR 4LONDON LETTER. I From Our Special Correspondent. ] London. When Parliament re-opens a new man is likely to be seen constantly on his feet handling questions arising out of the strike. This is Sir Rhys Williams, Bart., D.S.O., M.P., the new Par- liamentary Secretary for the Ministry o. Transport, who has been to Sir Eric Geddec- throughout the last few strenuous year. what Colonel FitzGerald was to Lord Kitchener. The member for Banbury has probably filled paore responsible executive positions during- the war than any member of the Hougo outside the Cabinet. Granted a commit011 in the Grenadier Guards in November. 1914, he was transferred with the rank oi captain to the Welsh Guards, which he kelpck-cl to raise. Wounded at Loos in 1915. and mentioned in dispatches, he re- ceived the D.S.O. Two months later he was Ewnt to Persia as Military Attache at the British Legation, Teheran, and was with th<? Eiissian troops throughout the campaign of 1916., On returning to England Sir Guy drsuipt, then Director-General of Movements and Railways at the War Office, asked him to join liis Department, and subsequently, in July, 1917. he was promoted to lieut--colonel on his appointment as Assistant Director- General. Sir Rys Williams paid frequent visits to France, representing Sir Guy Grsn-pt at various inter-allied transport conferences, and later to Italy, where he spent three months on the staff of Major- Oneral W. H. Grey, the Director-General of Transportation, Italy. In February, 1918, at the request of Sir Eric Geddes, who has a high opinion of Sir Rhys, he became Deputy-Director of Training and Staff Duties at the Admiralty. Subsequently, under Sir Erie, he was engaged in speeding- up dornoMlisatirn, and went from that im- mediately to the work of assisting in the drafting of the Transport Bill. I ALLR-NBY IN THE CITY. 5 General Allenby had a great reception when he went to receive the Freedom of the City of London. I have rarely witnessed a more intensely enthusiastic crowd, and the greeting which the nero of Palestine received from the distinguished company within the G-iildhall was hardly les:;¡ vociferous # than that which came from the multitude in the streets. Even the great welcome accorded tc the Prime Minister—who made his firs1 public appearance since the strike settlement —did not eclipse, and should not eclipse, Londc-n 's tribute to one of the most brilliant and popular of our military leaders in the great war. Mr. Lloyd George's speech at the luncheon at the Mansion House dealt almost perforce, with the strike, and showed that the Government was well prepared for such an emergency. In response to numerous ,demand.e from the crowd, -Air. Lloyd George went out on to the baloonv of the Mansion House and thanked the City again for itf cordial greeting. Altogether it was a most notable occasion. IRELAND. I A good deal of nonsense is being talked and written with regard to the alleged neces- sity for some instant action towards settle- ment in Ireland. Otherwise, say some of the wiseacres, the Home Rule Act will become operative—and nobody wants that. There is no reality in this danger, for the Home Rule Act cannot become operative until Peace has "been ratified by all concerned, and that is not likelv to be this side of Christmas any- how. What is happening about Ireland is that a Cabinet Committee has been ap- pointed to re-explore this difficult territory, and to work out the main lines of a settle- ment. Mr. Walter Long's presence on that Committee is a sign of the times, as is hie whole attitude to this problem. Time was, and not so long ago, when Home Rule or anything like it had no -more implacable foe than the present First Lord of the Admiralty. Mr. Long, like many other Unionists, has had to face the fact that Ireland must be dealt with, and that ehe cannot be permanently or properly dealt with, except on the lines to which the Coalition is pledged, that is to say, on the basis of self-government. PEDIGREES. I I had an interesting chat the other day with Mr. Aloysius Lumbye, well known to all frequenters of the British Museum Read- ing Room and the Record Office as a man of extraordinary learning in all matters genea- logical. Personally, I have never been able to understand why anyone should, except for some very material reason, be interested in the roots of his family tree. What is the use of a man's great-great-grandfather having had brains, or money, if he has none himself? However, Mr. Lumbye tells me that people are still keen, especially in America, in tracing their pedigrees. Before the war, said this venerable scholar in an out-of-the-way branch of learning, many wealthy Americans came over here every summer for no other reason than to fix up their genealogical charts! During the war such work as has been done from the States has been done by correspondence, but Mr. Lumbye anticipates a whole invasion of "Japhets in search of their fathers" next summer. The old gentleman confided to me with a chuckle that the origins of some of those who eeek traces of noble blood are, well, the reverse of what is desired when it is possible to trace them at all. GHOSTS. The Rev. Walter Wynn has sent me a copy of his book entitled "Rupert Lives." This volume is after-a, long way after-Sir Oliver Lodge's "Raymond," and purports to give evidence that the author's son, who was killed in France in 1917, is alive, and has held converse with his mundane pro- genitors. All I can say about it is_that any- one who would be convinced of the truth of Spiritualism by such "facts" as are here set forth is credulous beyond all argument. How useful it must be to be provided ae Mr. Wynn seems to be with friends on the "other side" who see to the paying of one's hotel bills (page 84).f^lch phenomena open up inestimable possibilities. We may yet counteract high prices by getting clothes and other necessities from tradesmen who have "paet over" into the realms where rent- collectors cease from troubling and the in. cone-tax payer is at rest—perhaps. For the or.e certain thing about Spiritualism is that if it ii true there isùô rest for the de- parted. An unhallowed thought, as it seems to me. NEW MUSICAL COMEDY. I Th-e, was a big house at the Gaiety for the production of "Tiie E.iss C5a-li," Tvliich is, I need not say, a. musical comedy not very ruuch off the boater track which such things follow. The audie^j liked it, to by +h^i" reception of ?«-, and 1 cm bound to say + t as oiicii productions go it ivas quite Food. Nothing very original either in the music or in the plotfot" this musical comedy has a plot; and dant-s and dresses were quite up to the Gaiety standard. Mr. G. P. Huntui<-o.e the most of a part ob- viously very much to his liking; but I have seen Mr. Stanley Lupino more happily en- gaged. This show will no doubt run for many and many a lively niE-nt, but I cannot say that the popularity of gucth perform- ances indicates a very high standard of art on the part c: the theatre-going public. The other day I saw some suggestions tor "livening up" Shakespeare! Heaven help us-we deaerve it!
I Llandovery Rural Council. I Mr. Daniel LewÍJS presided over the I monthly meeting of the above Rural District Council, which was held on Friday last. I ROAD EXPENDITURE. I It was pointed out in reference to grantg for road improvements that unless the Council adhered to the conditions stipulated by the Roads Board, they could not get the grants. The Rural Council wished to spread the ex- penditure over different sections of the roads, whilst the Roads Board stipulated that the Council should proceed with one section at a time. Cross Ina- Can 't we con- Mr. W. Evans, Cross Inn: Can t we con- vince them that that is the best way for us. Our roads at LlandcLeusaiut are in such a really bad and dangerous state, that it is now "perilous to bring our traps over them owing to the ruts and big holes. They are liable ait any time to topple over. A Member: You axe a very heavy man. (Laughter) He &aid that those who had told Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, that their roads were never .in a better state were only speaking half the truth. That referred only to the upper part. He had been forced to travel by a different road on account of their state. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, said that some of the roads were in such a bad state that they should do their best to improve them. He noticed that Llandilo Rural Council had re- ceived a grant towards roads in the Cwm- amman district. A Member thought that the Llanelly Rural Council should repair the roads used by them in connection with the waterworks. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, proposed that they should do all they could in order to obtain a grant, and the nearer the source they went with their application the better. The Clerk said it had to go through the County Surveyor. MT. W. Evans, Cross Inn, said they ought to get in grants of thousands of pounds to put the roads of the district in proper order. The Clerk said that the officials had spent a good deal of time dealing with this matter, and after all the particulars had been fur- nished it fell through because they failed to comply with the conditions. Mr. Evans, Cross Inn, said the roads were very dangerous for horses, and argued that the more money they spent in order to meet the conditions necessary to obtain the grants, the more money would be in their pockets in the end. The matter was referred to the Clerk, whom members said had done his best in the past. During the discussion, reference was made to the steps to be taken to obtain sums due from timber merchants in respect to damage done by haulage. In reference to Cwmcothi Road, Caio, it was announced that a grant of 1400 would be made on account. PROFITEERING ACT. 1 A communication was read from the Board of Trade in regard to the register which would have to be kept under the Profiteering Act, dealing with complaints and other matters. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT. I The Medical Officer of Health's report for the year ended December 31st, 1918, was as follows:— Population.— The population for the Rural District, as supplied by the Local Government for statistical purposes—death- population, 6,141 birth-rate, 6,881. 1t General Mortality.—The total number of deaths registered in the rural area was 134- males, 70; females, 64. With a death-rate population of 6,141, this gives a death-rate of 21.8 per 1,000. This is the highest recorded for many years, and very much higher than the average for the whole of England and Wales. Of the total of 134 deaths, influenza accounted for 21 pulmonary tuberculosis, 13; cardiac diseases, 17; cancer, 9; pneumonia, 9; bronchit is, 9; suicide, 3; violence, 2. Births and Birth-Rate.—The births regis- tered during the year were, 115-males, 58; females, 57. With a birth-rate population of 6,881, the rate per 1,000 would be 16.7. This is slightly higher than the last few years, but is slightly below the average birth- rate for the whole of England and Wales- 17.7. Infantile Mortality.—There were, 15 deaths under one year, giving a rate of 130.5 per 1,000 births. This is lower than last year, but is higher than for the whole of England and Wales. There is still a scarcity of trained midwifery nurses in the rural area. Even if it were only Health Visiting, it would materially assist mothers in the proper feeding of their infants. Zymotic Diseases.— There has been one death from whooping cough and one from diphtheria. There were a few isolated cases of diphtheria in the area. The epidemic of influenza was a very severe one, causing 21 deaths. Tuberculosis.— There were 13 deaths from pulmonary tuberculosis. This is most unsatisfactory. Water Supply.—This is a very serious question m most of the areas, more especially in Llangadock. Here, within about 4 miles, the Llanelly Rural District Council water supply passes, who offei this village a way out of this serious question. It has been before the Council on many occasions, but the people of Llangadock are afraid of the cost (initial). The various wells have been nearly all condemned in previous years. This suggested supply would solve the vexed ques- tion of drainage. Myddfai, Llansadwm, Rhandirmwyn and Cwmdwr are in the same unsatisfactory pondition. Housing.— The influenza epidemic has strongly emphasised the need of housing reforms. Even the general public were amazed at some of the conditions under which ,iome of the people lived. During the influenza epidemic we had from 4 to 11 people in the one house down with this disease in bedrooms with no fireplaces and windows not made to open. In two-roomed cottages with earth floor and zinc roofs, is it surprising that we have 13 deaths from phthisis, 17 from cardiac disease, which in every case originally arise from rheumatism, due to the housing conditions. Very few of Lhese houses are provided with a water supply, except water in an exposed well or small stream. Slaughter Houses.—Complaints are being frequently made as to the condition of slaughter houses in Llangadock, of which there are threc., "t!ps should be taken to DUld a slauaht, house outside the village, which should cori^in a water supply and be properly drained. Cowsheds and Dairies.- These are satis- factory. Workshops ind F ac.torjes.- These are clean and well ventilated." HOUSES REQUIRED. The Clerk said that this Council had pre- viously decided not to go in for a housing scheme. He wished to remind them that unless a scheme was provided by the end of that month, they would lose the benefit of the Government grant. The doctor, in his rport, laid It down cle^Iy thit houses were required; and it was only a question of time before they would be forced to go in for a scheme, in which casj, if they delayed, they would have to bear all the expense. It was decided that a special meeting should be called to consider the matter, as well as the rest of the doctor's report.
