Llandovery Board of Guardians I The monthly meeting of this body was held on Friday, under the presidency of Councillor Dl. Lewis, Ynysybordi. THE HOUSE. I The Master reported that the number of inmates was 14, against 18 in the correspond- ing period last year. Divine services had been held in the House by the Revs. Joseph Jenkins (C.M.), for the Tabernacle; T. J. Rowlands, curate, for the Church of Eng- land H. Ifor James, for the Ebenezer Bap- tist Church; and J. Volander Jones, for Salem Congregational Church. Applications for increases of salaries were received from the Cook and General, who now receive respectively 126 and £20 a year. Visits had been paid to the House by Mr. DI Lewis and the Rev. Joseph Jenkins. A demobilised soldier had been admitted to the House, suffering from a cold, on the recom- mendation of Dr. Elton. The matter was reported to the Secretary of the local branch of the Discharged and Demobilised Sailors and Soldiers' Federation, and the man dis- charged himself on the 27th October. A sum of 14 12s. 6d. had been paid a nurse for her services at the Institution. DISTRICT NURSE. The Clerk announced that the District Nursing Association had secured the services of a nurse, who would take up her duties on the 15th inst. Her salary would be £ 140 per annum. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, thought they would then be able to dispense with a nurse of their own at the House. The Clerk said they would have to come to terms with the Nursing Association. Mr. Davies said they were always on good terms with them. DEFECTIVE HEATING APPARATUS. The Clerk called attention to the intensely cold state of the room, due to defective heating apparatus, and, pointing to the reporter, said that like the members he found it necessary to keep his cvercoat on. Members joined in the complaint, and ex- pressed the hope that attention would be directed to the discomfort they were all suffering. On the motion of Mr. W. Thomas, Caio, the meeting discussed the quesion of closing tha Workhouse. Mr. Thomas said that he did not propose at this juncture that they should take any specific steps, but the sub- ject was well worthy of their serious con- sideration, as he hoped to presently prove. The Workhouse was opened some 80 years, ago. It was then a necessity and an up-to- date Institution. To-day he was sure they would agree with him it was far from being so. He did not know whether the period of its necessity had expired or not, and he did not know whether it was an unnecessary burden on the ratepayers or not. He would not have introduced these notes of interrogation if he had not given the question serious con- sideration from its different aspects. First of all, let them take the sentimental aspect. It was one which had weighed, and would always very heavily weigh, with them as a nation, and would sometimes carry them to l dangerous ground. They had 14 inmates at the Institution. They had been there for years, some of them. They had made it their only home. They (the members) had grown fond of them by visiting them. In fact, they had learnt to love them. But for all this, they had their duty to do. They would not for a moment suggest that these people should be thrown out into the street. They would not suggest that they should be txiled to a foreign country. But they thought thit it would be to their interest and to the ratepayers' interest if they took some different method of dealing with them. They had also to consider that they had their officials and staff, who had proved faithful and in every respect efficient for long years. To part from them would be very hard. They had members on that Board who were born thf- same year as this Institution was opened, and the biggest part of their life had been spent looking after its welfare and its inmates. He said with all sincerity that the connec- tion could not be ruptured without touching some tender feelings in their hearts. But they were there to face facts, the bare facts, and their faithful promises to the ratepayers. Had they not promised that they would look after their interests without fear or favour? (Applause). Now, let them see what it cost them annually as an Institution. The nearest round figures he could give them was £ 1,000 a year. Just think of it. £1,000 a year to maintain a family of 14. The Clerk: No, 19. The Chairman: No, he ,is Tight. It was 19 in the corresponding week of last year. The Relieving Officer: It was 19 first week of this month. Mr. W. Thomas: I believe my statement is correct. _A I he Chairman: Quite. Now," proceeded Mr. Thomas, if you divide them into two families of seven each, you will find that they cost 1500 each to keep. Often their roadmen had a family of 7. 8, or 9, and had to maintain them on £ 93 a year. Where was the consistency? What was the remedy? He did not suggest there was any waste °1L-!pe part of any of their officials, but rather would he challenge and defy any public body to run an Institution of this kind as economically and efficiently as their officials were doing. Other people had taken steps, and he felt it was high time they should. What was going to be done with their old people, some of whom had reached the last stage in their earthly existence? It would be in their own interests, as well as the ratepayers, that they should be dealt with in a different manner to what they were now. He gave instances connecter with the cost of outdoor paupers. Onr- bedridden and paralysed for 17 years was- receiving tOs. a week. Another, ot" P I';1;o.d, v'as receiving 12s. a week. In respect to those who had n-) relatives or „ „^e -m, be sug- gested that they should bp removed to some more up-to-date Institution. As to the others, hi claimed if they could board them out, | inn Ml | |T» ifjy hey would be much happier than if they ,vsre tied to the rules of an Institution. Existing outdoor paupers were well looked jiter. Why should not the others be? It would mean the saving of hundreds of pounds annually to the ratepayers. Mr. Davies, Rhyblid, and other members congratulated Mr. Thomas on his able speech. The latter said they had in contemplation the losing of the Workhouse when the war .roke out, and Mr. Williams, Local Govern- ment Board Inspector, recommended it. That course had been taken in regard to Work- houses in adjoining parishes. Mr. W. Evans, Cross Inn, asked how many had been closed in this county. Mr. Davies replied: Newcastle Emlyn and Haverfordwest jointly in both counties. The Chairman said three children were included in the 14 inmates. Mr. D. Davies: If they are taken away, there will not be many left. There were three or four mental deficients. They would ba removed to separate Institutions. The others, he believed, could be accommodated quite near in the district as boarded-out paupers on outdoor relief. As regarded those to be sent to other Workhouses, he should like the Clerk to enquire of the In- spector what Workhouses to recommend. The Rev. Joseph Jenkins said Mr. Thomas' address was very enlightening. It was well worth their considering if they could reduce the expense from £ 1,000 a year to £ 500, especially in view of the heavy and advancing rates. They had to weigh as to what was most economical for the ratepayers, but not without keeping well in view the comfort and the just needs of the poor. They ought to endeavour to balance the scales justly as between the ratepayer and the poor. He reminded them that some Authorities put the sovereign's present value at 6s. 8d. so far as concerned its purchasing power for certain commodities. He emphasised the need of the poor getting proper treatment as ot more vital importance than getting the rates down. Mr. Nicholas Nicholas asked if, in the event of the Institution being closed and a portion of the inmates being taken elsewhere, proper steps would be taken to see they had proper treatment? Mr. W. Thomas replied in the affirmative, and said they would have the right to visit the place they were taken to and see they received proper treatment. Mr. Thomas Jones, Penrhyn, under these safeguards, gave the suggestion his support, as did Mr. James Price. Mr. W. Thomas then moved, and Mr. D. Gwynne seconded, and it was declared car- ried unanimously, that the necessary steps be taken to close the Workhouse. PRECEPTS. County precepts amounting to f-4,053 7s. 9d for the ensuing half-year were submitted, being almost double the precept issued in the preceding half-year.
Glanammaii Feast. I TWO M.E. J.P.'S HONOURED. On Saturday evening last, at the Plough Hotel, Glanamman, a most pleasant function was held. It was the occasion of the popular annual feast of the Gellyceidrim Colliery officials. About 60 attended and partook of a most excellent repast prepared by the genial host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. T. Jones Hay, and served with the assistance of several dutiful and amiable waitresses. The appetising fare provided could not less than be done justice to. All present were fully satiated, and congratulations were lavishly showered on the providers for such a fine spread, and many expressed a wsih inwardly that a similar function be held agai in. All the guests having been well supplied physi- cally, the company retired to a commodious chamber to enjoy a splendidly prepared course of mental victuals in an atmosphere laden with the spirit of good fellowship. The esteemed and affable Gelli official, Mr. J. Enoch James, M.E., occupied the presiden- tial seat, and steered the proceedings in his own usual wise and able way. Gilding his throne were the principal guests of the even- ing and the pivots of the function's honour, Mr. E. R. Fisher, M.E., J.P., manager, Gellyceidrim Collieries, and Mr. D. Farr Davies, M.E., J.P., Cross Hands, general manager of the group of collieries concerned. Both these gentlemen were recently elevated to the magisterial bench, and were invited to the function to be honoured and congratu- lated on their appointment. The President opened the proceedings with a neat speech, defining the object of the event and how it had come about to have Messrs. Davids and Fisher in their midst. The supper was an annual event, but on that occasion it had afforded them as officials an opportunity of expressing their pleasure and good wishes towards their superior officials on their being raised to the position of magis- trates. Furthermore, they had decided to shew their appreciation in a tangible form, and that to present them with a silver ink- stand each. They were but slight tokens of their good feelings towards their bosses," but were nevertheless representative of sin- cere good wishes. (Cheers). Mr. Benjamin Rees, the oldest official in the Gelli Colliery, accompanied with a brief but pointed little speech, handed over the gift to Mr. Davies, who described it as a really pleasant surprise, and appreciated the sincere good feeling showed in such a sub stantial manner towards him. He really did not know how to thank them for such a fine gift. He would always treasure it for its monetary value, but more so for the good spirit which prompted them to give it. He wished to thank them heartily for their kind words and deed. j Mr. Fisher was presented with a similar costly article on behalf of his fellow-officials by Mr. Samuel Thomas, Sindlfryn, who transferred the present while delivering a humorous speech, which provoked much mirth, winding it up with the expression that he wished every success to Mr. Fisher while he breathed, adding: Between you and your business after." The recipient acknowledged the gift in a similar strain, and said he endorsed the terms of gratitude which Mr. Davies had voiced. He also wished them to kindly accept his sincere thanks for the valuable gift. There was no need for him to tell them he would always look upon it as 'the outcome of good feeling and would ever highly prize it. Mr. Samuel Thomas then read a series of verses dealing with the event (which will be found in our Welsh columns). The audience accepted his effusion with rousing cheers. Mr. Syd James, the rising young basso, entertained the company to a splendid render- ing of The Trumpeter." He was re- called. The brilliant and popular Amman- ford comedian, Mr. Jack Williams, roused a storm of laughter on the previously calm waters of the proceedings with one of his favourite mirth-provoking comic songs. For waking the humorous elements of the even- ing to such a tempestuous state he was heavily penalised by his listeners by being compelled to step from his seat to the piano about half- a-dozen times before the end. His repertoire seemed inexhaustible, however. A remarkably harmonious duet was given by the hostess, Mrs. T. Jones-Hay, and the mellow-voiced contralto, Miss May Rees, Glenhurst. They sang Over the Hawthorn Hedge," and were vociferously encored. Madam Hay re- sponded with a sweetly sung soprano solo. Mr. John Jones delivered a string of interest- ing verses on the occasion, which were highly appreciated. Mr. F. Gunning pleased the company immensely with a good comic song, while Mr. Philpott, of Garnant, "left a good impression as a result of vocalising a song. Mr. David Davies resuscitated a favourite old Welsh ballad, and sang it with such effect as to win a great encore. He Te- sponded with another pleasing old air. Mr. T. Morris Walters (Butts), Bryn- amman, addresc^d the meeting, and thanked the promoters for their kind invitation to a tend an event which had been to him a most pleasant o„e indeed. He knew that each act all were ready to endorse ihat. He had not tne p leasure of the principal guests' acquaintance more than having casually met ihi-m or t row occaai- .s. • If -the/ v, ire destined *•> nic.-t oftepei ir .he future, he h^md ,fi v.Id not be at the Ammanford Court. ^j-ugbttr).

The speaker finished his speech with a number of English verses dealing with the honoured M.E.'s. Mr. John Morgan, A.L.C.M., the efficient accompanist, of Gamant, who was himself honoured for services rendered recently, pre- sided at the piano, and proved himself a most sympathetic player. Hearty votes of thanks were accorded the Chairman for the able way he had managed the helm, of the, enjoyable function. God save the King was chorused to terminate.
Llandilo Police Court. Saturday, November 8th.-Before Mr. J. Picton (Chairman), Mr. H. W. Jones, Mr. W. Hopkin, and Mr. Evan Davies. I Mr. Gwyn Porter, solicitor, Lian- dilo, applied on behalf of the licensed victuallers of Llandilo and Ffairfach for an extension of hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the occasion of the November Fair, the 12th and 13th inst., which he said was attended by a large number of people. He urged that these people were entitled to refreshments, including intoxicants, at the hours most suitable to them. The publicans were under very strict con- trol, and had no desire to encourage excessive drinking. Similar applica- tions had been granted in other towns. The present hours were fixed by an Order in Council. The preamble to the Order stated that these regulations were intended to increase the efficiency of labour during the war, now happily over. These restrictions ought now to bp. brought to an end. The Bench decided to grant the application for one day only, the 12th inst. As to the 13th, they thought it was unnecessary, as the pig fairs on the second day had been done away with. A number of persons were charged with using vehicles without front and rear lights. Deputy Chief Constable Evans said that these regulations were for a short time withdrawn, but were afterwards re-imposed, and these proceedings were taken with the object of bringing it to the notice of the public that the Order as to red lights was again in force. He did not bring these cases on with the object of asking for the infliction of fines, but for the reason stated. He hoped that the Press would take a note of the fact that the Order was again in force. The Bench agreed, and the defen- dants were dealt with under the First Offenders' Act and ordered to pay the costs. Benjamin Clarke, Cwmnant, Peny- groes, a youth of 18, was charged by Deputy Chief Constable Evans with having in his possession a pheasant during the close season, viz., on the 29th of September. Mr. T. C. Hurley was for the pro- secution, and Mr. Gwyn C. Porter defended. Mr. Porter pleaded guitly, and urged that defendant should be dealt with under the Probation of Offences Act. He was the .eldest of twelve children, of whom there were no less than seven at home. He bore a good character. Edward Bellamy, a gamekeeper in the employ of the Dowager Countess of Cawdor, said that as he was pro- ceeding on his bicycle along the road from Drysllwyn he heard shots. He left his bicycle on a farm and walked through the wood. When near Plas- bach he saw defendant and another man coming down through some shrubs. They said they had only a few nets i, their pockets. He asked defendant to produce what he had, and eventually he put his hand in defendant's pocket and took out a pheasant. The other man immediately ran away as fast as he could. Defendant still refused to disclose his name. He produced a gun licence, and witness obtained his name and address from it. He refused to give the name of the other man, and told witness it was his duty to find out himself. Defendant was ordered to pay the costs. He was then charged with being in pursuit of game on the Dowager Countess of Cawdor's land. Edward Bellamy, the gamekeeper, in the course of his evidence, said defendant produced and offered him a Treasury note for ii to settle the matter. He was surprised and dis- appointed when he refused to accept it. Subsequently defendant' s father and another man were met. The father said the pheasant did not belong to the Dowager Countess, and that it was shot at Maesypant. The defen- dant concurred. Evidence was then given by defen- dant and lus father. They swore that tne pheasant was shot at Tvmawr. Defends denierj bavin* c"eid t' gamekeeper a T note to square the matter. ;~ie said he had only 5s. • 1 • In hn pocket ui inf* t,rr"\ -?d the The Be?ch thiey con?* -d the case proved, IalnJ fined aa-it ) < £ ? an d l- ac.i-a.s fee of two guineas.

Our Poultry Column. To be successful in poultry keeping, it is necessary to make the best of everything and not incur any waste. In feeding, see that all is eaten, or should any be left ever one day, reduce the amount, which will soon bring the birds down to clearing up all their food. Appliances must be kept in order, and to repair will be cheaper than buying new ones; so see to them as soon as there is any accident or breakage. The birds must be treated on the same lines by never keeping them longer than is necessary, but always selling when most likely to give the best return. Of course, if you find that the demand for eggs is great, it may be advisable to keep all the pullets hatched during the year, though if the demand be doubt- ful and a chance comes along, sell these, for money in hand will help you to raise more birds the next season. Quite recently I was asked the best method for dealing with a big flock of cockerels which were surplus stock and not wanted for sale. They were only good enough to prepare for killing, and as some of my readers may have a similar lot, I will give the method for dealing with them. Much will depend upon what sort of market you can find for them, as to the treatment. Sup- pose you can sell well to the proper man who will fatten ready for the poulterer; they then save you trouble, and means a clearance under the one trouble. But the price made will depend upon the condition as to whether they carry much flesh. Some places prefer birds which do not carry a lot of fat, but just the birds from off the grass runs, after being well fed, which are called grass-fed birds. These flocks can be made up in lots of forty or fifty, and then fed liberally with soft food three times a day, and not given a lot of water and confined to a rather limited run. This is necessary to prevent them running off the flesh which you are putting on, and also turns the food intomuscle rather than meat. When treated like this for three weeks, or most a month, they should be ready for killing, out, of course, will not be sa fat or heavy as if pro- perly crammed. Chickens fed this way are less trouble than in small fattening coops, and some people prefer them like this. Another method is to put them into fattening coops, about two feet wide, four feet long, raised from the ground, with narrow slats for the floor, so that the droppings can easily drop through, and much the same style for the front, in which they can put their heads through to feed. These coops will take six or eight birds each, and there must be a trough put along the front, in which the food must be placed and which must be made sloppy, so that the birds almost drink it, and then they do not need water. Here the birds cannot get exercise, so that two good feeds each day will be enough; but any food left after each meal must be taken away, and in cold weather can be used for the next feed, but on no account use it if sour. The birds must be kept quiet between times, so that they may rest; hence it is best when the chicks are put in a roomy shed, which can be opened for feeding and then shut up again when finished, which gives a state of semi-darkness. The time for being in the coop must vary According to the condition in which they start, for if half fat they may be ready in ten days, but should not be in longer than three weeks, as after this time they pine and lose flesh. When killing, clear off the whole coop, for they never do so well when sepa- rated after being so long together. One important point is the quality of the food, which should be Sussex ground oats mixed with milk, and for the last ten days any odd surplus fat which can be had from the butchers. If a cram- ming machine is used, the last ten days will be found long enough to put on the maximum amount of flesh.

Interesting Llandilo Meeting. DISCHARGED MEN AND AN APPOINTMENT. A meeting of the Llandilo Branch of the Discharged Sailors' and Soldiers' Federation was held at the Institute on Friday evening lst, under the presidency of Mr. Stephens, D.C.M., London House. The Ch aiini&n, at the outsd, said that the question at issue was one of the most momen- tous to the interests and welfare of the dis- charged men. Mr. Fred Thomas, AmmanforJ, the secre- tary to the East Carmarthenshire District CoLmcit. then addressed the meeting. He contended that the attitude of the County Authority towards the recent appointment of headmaster at the Llandovery County School was unfair, and furthermore, unjust to the dIsc h ayg-cd men. He wished to be honour- able to the cause of education himself, and mtima? d that should the qualifications of the dichar; 1,, liave failed (as was not the case in t]" then he (Mr. Thomas) would have iciaaimed silent. The mere fact that a man had served, even in the front line, did not ,ualify him for a post. He (Mr. Thomas) was not n any way prejudiced to the inteiests of the successful candidate, but h* had come a Llandilo, the very home of the newly appointed master, to ascertain the views of the discharged men on the merits of the appointment. He (Mr. Thomas) inti- mated that on Thursday next a deputation was being sent to meet the County Authority to discuss the matter. Should Llandilo be unfavourable, then the odds would be against n the F-ast Carmarthen District Council. The fruits of vic'ory would rest upon the action ot the LIaddo Branch. Major Charlie Thomas, O.B.E., objected to the lalttr statement, and enquired of the speaker why Llandilo had been chosen by Mr. Thomas to open his campaign. Mr. Thomas suitably replied. Continuing, he said '.hat it was the opportune time to further the interests of the men who had fought for their cormtry. Here was the case of a man who had nerved in the lines for some three years, daily facing death and enduring hardships u-told. Th" man possessed the highest qt.ligations. Here was a point a: issue: vvvre thsy gokig to support the man who had the greatest service, the man who had the highest qualifications, or the man who had served for a solitary day en thfj FJeserve ? Major i jjoir?s here inti rrup!ed and sak; that Mr. Thomr. was putting the matter to them from the blackest standpoint. The Chairman said that they were out to support the principles of the Federation, and not to take any particular case from a per- sonal standpoint. Several heated arguments followed, and refulted in several members leaving the room. The Chairman thereupon put the proposal to the meeting that the Llandilo Branch sup- port the attitude of the East Carmarthen Dis- trict Council and oppose the present appoint- ment made by the County Authority. Major Charlie Thomas, O.B.E., moved an amendment to the effect that the Llandilo Branch was not opposed to the appointment. Mr. Crabb seconded. On a division there was a tie, and the Chairman gave his casting vote in favour of the original motion. Major Thomas then asked that the exact figures of the voting be given at the meeting at which the deputation would be met. The Chairman said that they could simply leave the matter to their honour. Mr. Thomas, Ammanford, humorously re- marked that he hoped they would be agree- able to record the fact that several members had walked out of the room. There was no answer given to this. DISCHARGED MEN AT THE WORK- HOUSE. The question was asked as to whether an an angement could be come to between the Workhouse Master at Llandilo and the local Secretary of the Federation, whereby notices o! admission of discharged men to the Insti- tution could be sent to the Secretary at Ammanford. Major Thomas said that he understood there was an arrangement, and that the Sec- retary of the Branch was to have written to the Master and the Clerk to the Guardians. The Secretary informed the meeting that he had seen the parties personally. Major Thomas: That is not in writing. It was eventually agreed that the Master and the CWV to the Llandilo Union be written to
Ammanford Police Court. Monday, November IOth.-Before Mr. A. E. Du Buisson, Glynhir (in the chair); apd Mr. E. R. Fisher, Wansbeck. NO MUZZLE. I I thought the Muzzling Order had been withdrawn," said Edgar Wil- liams, Pantyffynnon, when accosted by P.C. Dl. Jones and charged with having his dog unmuzzled. He was fined 6s. A GAME OF FOOTBALL. Cecil Leonard and D. G. Edwards, bc'h of Glanamman, were caught by P.C. Roberts playing football in Station Road. There were present several other boys, whose ages ranged from 8 to 10 years. When they saw the officer approaching they ran away, and on being caught gave no explana- tion. The Chairman, in ordering defen- dants to pay the costs, said that they were old enough to understand that playing football was an offence. How- ever, being that this case was the first of its kind proceeded with, they would be let off on payments of costs. HORSE UNATTENDED. I Johnny Thomas, High Street, Ammanford, was summoned for allow- ing a horse, to which was attached a spring cart, to be unattended for ten minutes on the highway. P.C. Ben Roberts proved the case, and deposed that during the whole of the time pedestrians and horse-drawn vehicles passed by. The defendant, on being charged, said that he had only been inside a shop for a few minutes. A fine of 10s. inclusive was im- posed. COLLARLESS AND MUZZLELESS. I W. R. John, for whom his father appeared, was summoned for allowing his dog to be without a collar, and, further, with not having a muzle on the same day. He said that the dog had lost several collars within a week or so. The leniency of the Bench was ap- pealed for, on the ground that the defendant had been unemployed for some time. A fine of I C's. for each offence was imposed NO REAR RED LIGHT. I A WARNING TO THE PUBLIC. I A number of persons were sum- moned for having no red lights to I their machines. The Deputy Chief Constable sai^ that he hoped he g j- jblic won!1 give full cons deration to the fact that I the Order had been re-introduced on the 29th September 1,1-,t. and he asked that the Press give lull publicity to tHe fact. He quite appreciated the likeli- hood that several persons were unaware of the re-appearance of the Regu- lations, and yet people got to know of its cancellation. They were ordered to pay costs. j I í
