Llandilograban Concert. Handiiograban Concert IX AID OF RED CROSS FUNDS. I On llth ult., a most successful entertainment was held in the parish of Llandilo-Gr&ban, in aid of the funds of the Red Cross, when the school- room was packed to over-Sowing. Great credit was due to the young men of the parish who formed the committee and who spared no pains to ensure the success of the concert and to the kind friends who came from immense distances to give their valuable and much appreciated services. The re- suit was a most enjoyable evening to all concerned a.nd the substantial sum of over .E7 to be handed over to the deserving cause. Major E. Aubrey Thomas (The Skreen)) pre- sided, and in a few well-chosen words pointed out what invaluable work the Red Cross Units were doing a.H over the country and how worthy they I were of best support. Where all was good, it waa impossible to single out for mention any special items in the long and -varied programme. Thanks were due to the follow- ing performers who came from near a.nd far Miss Marjorie Price (Clyro), Miss E. Lewis (Llan- afan), Miss Mabel Evans (Kington), Miss L. Pntcbard (Newchurch), the Misses Thomas (Pen- earth), Mr W. Sheldon (LIowes), Mr Rhys (Rhu- lan), Mr F. Lewis (Llanafan), Miss Mills (Sunny Bank), and Miss Agnes Pugh (Daren) gave good recitations. Mr W. Williams also ren- dered a solo, etc. The children's choir was conducted by Mr Sidney Williams. The United Choir, consisting of mem- bers of church and chapel, was ably led by Mr W. Price, and the LJandilo male voice party by Mr J. Thomas. The accompanists were Mrs Aubrey Thomas, Miss E. Williams (Great House), Miss E. Lewis (Llanafan) and Miss Mabel Evans (Eington). The piano and decorations were kind- ly lent by Mrs Aubrey Thomas. A pleasing and unusual item in the programme wag the rendering in French of her National Anthem by a young Belgian lady, Madame Licienne Gillieaux. The committee consisted of the following :— Mr Alfred Williams, chairman, Mr Jas. Haines, Tice-chairman, Mr W. Meredith, secretary, Mr S. Williams, treasurer, Messrs. Arthur Pritchard, Albert Pritchard, Evan Meredith, Henry Mehc, Ivor Jones, Leonard WtHiams and George Mor- gan. A receipt for £7 Is 4d, accompanied by a grate- ful letter of thanks, has been received from Miss Venables, Commandant ef the Highland Moors, the Red Cross Hospital at Llandrindod WeHs. to which the proceeds have been sent.
TERRITORIAL'S DEATH. I I INQUEST AT BEDFORD. 1 MEDICAL EVIDENCE. I On Monday the Bedford coroner held an inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of Pte. Daniel Thomas, 2/1 Brecknocks, w'ho died in his billet, a large empty house, on Saturday morning, before a doctor could arrive. The day before lie went on a long route march. Major J. R. Williams, R.A.M.C., said he saw deceased within ten minutes of getting the in- timation that he was ill, at 8.30 on Saturday morning. Previous to seeing this man he had seen 130 men on sick parade, and deceased's name was marked "sick in billet," so tha-t, in the ordinary course, he would have been seen after sick parade. An urgent message came while he was making out the sick reports, and he imme- diately went to .11e billet. Deceased had just died, death being due to hemorrhage in the brain. Pte. A. Williams, 2/1 Brecknocks, said he had known deceased four years. In civil life he was a collier and lived at Ystalyfera. On Friday, after the march, he saw deceased in the billet, and he was all right. At 3.30 witness got up to have a cigarette. Deceased was then vomiting, and witness asked what was the matter, but he could not get an answer. He and another man rubbed his hands, and he came round. Half-an- hour later witness again got up because deceased was groannig, and stayed with him for the rest of the night. At 6.30 he reported the matter to the sergeant, who said the man would be put on the sick list. Witness remained with deceased. who never spoke before his death. Capt. A. J. de Winton, 2/1 Brecknocks, in command of "D" Co.. of which Thomas was a member, said deceased always had the appear- ance of an aged man, though only 33 years of age. On one occasion he turned very sick and ill while digging trenches. Since the man had been in Bedford he had been reported sick three times in one month. On Friday he went on the march, and the man who had walked next to him bad told wit- ness that deceased said he was not well. If that had been reported to witness he would not have allowed him to go, but be stood the march very pluckily. Next morning he heard that deceased was' ill and was told it had been reported in the usua.I way. The jury returned a verdict of death from cerebral haemorrhage.

War and Politics. I The discussion of the Army Estimates was the prominent feature of Pa.rlia.menta.ry business last week. It was the complaint of Mr Hobhouae that Mr Tennant, in making his statement on the motion to go into Committee, left the House in darkness as to what was hap- pening on the Salonika, front and in Mesopo- tamia. But it is obvious that the Under Secre- tary for War could not lay information on such matters before the House in open session without the grave&t risk of revealing secrets that the enemy is eager to penetrate. Outside from this necessarily prohibited area, Mr Tennali't's speech ranged almost every subject of War Omce policy and administration. The most acutely controver- sial topics of the moment are, of course, the grievance of .the married groups at being called up much sooner than they had anticipated, and the defence of the country against air raids. Mr Pemberton Billing, the successful "air candi- date" of the East Herts bye-election, delivered his maiden speech within an hour or two of his taking the oa.th. He received a good deal of in- dulgence from the speaker, for, although the subject before.the House was the War Omce es- tima.tes. a large part of his remarks were direct- ed to the Naval Air Service. ￼ I r Tennant's There ;ere two items in Mr Tennant's "ac- count rendered" which ought to give satisfaction even to the most rigid critics of the War Office. The first related to the provision of the require- ments for the expeditionary force in France, and the second to the health of the troops and the pre- cautions carried out by the Medical Service. Mr Tennant read a letter from Bir Douglas Haig. the Genera! Officer Commanding, which testified in the strongest terms to the quality and quantity of what had been supplied-horses, food, forage, clothing and equipment—and the unfailing re- gularity with which transport and delivery had been maintained. Sir Douglas Haig added :— Our forces in France have been increased from two corps to a large army. The provis- ion made for their well-being, whether in sick- ness or health, has been all that could b< wished. The result of all the strenuous labour devoted to this arm y is that all are in good health and good heart, and confident of vic- tory." v To the care of the health of the Expeditionary Force Mr Tennant read another testimonial. This was from Sir Frederick Treves, the famous surgeon, "who was at one time a critic of the War Omce." Sir Frederick Treves declared that the improvement effected amounted to an actual revolution, and that wounded soldiers are so well cared for that. it is difficult to say in what way their welfare could be more advanced. Mr Ten- nant was able to state that the incidence of disease is low, and there has been an entire ab- sence of epidemic, thanks to the energy of many scientific men and the Sanitary Committee, Highly successful measures have been taken against gas attacks, and the National Health Commissioners have taken up the question of the early treatment of tuberculous cases removed from the Army. "The Medical Service," Mr Tennant said, "has been almost perfected." Wi'th a lightness of touch that had something of the ironicat in it. Mr Tennant alluded to "a certain amount of agitation about the case of the married men." It had been announced in the newspapers, Mr Tennant reminded the House, that energetic steps were being taken by the Go- vernment to revise the lists of starred men and reserved occupations, and to reduce to a mini- mum the number fit for military service who were. kept at home in order to carry on industrial occupations. By these means he believed that I he Government pledge would be fulfilled. What Mr Tennant I)as described as "a certain amount of agitation" is in reality a considerable campaign to inflame the not unreasonable discon- tent of married men, who believe that there are a, considerable number of far from indispensable young men sheltering behind "starring" and re- served occupations, into an utterly irrational de- mand that no married men shall be drafted into the Army so long as one unmarried .man of military age remains unen.rolled. Lord Sel- borne s reply to a deputation of farmers, in which he protested against tha tendency to fall into a panic over the question of skilled labour for agriculture, serves as a reminder that the task of national organisation for victory by utilising all the energies of the country in the manner and place in which they will be most effective can only be hampered and obstructed by reckless agitation. =x Dr. Macnamara, Secretary to the Admiralty, announced in the House of Commons last week the constitution and names of the Joint War Committee, over which Lord Derby is to preside. It will consist of representatives of the Admiralty and War Omce, with advisory members to be called in as required, and a secretariat. The functions of the committee :ire to deal with mat- tcTs of policy from the point of view of con- notion and provision of material. Mr Ten- jjjjit, in hJs statement on the Army Estimates, explained the difnculties which the War Office had had to confront in regard especially to mater- ial and trained pilots, and the ffiJecessful manner in which these difficulties had been overcome. Mr Pemberton Billing's criticisms, as already has been mentioned, were chiefly directed against the Naval Air Service. He complained that, when the material was far more deficient than now, aggressive movements were found possible which are not attempted under the improved cir- cumstances of to-day. His solution of all our dimculties was the discovery and appointment of "The Men." 4: Mr McEenna announced the Government's de- cision not to adopt the proposal for an issue of War Loan in premium bonds, which, as he point- ed out, would be contrary to existing statutes. While there are many advocates of such a. step, a large body of opinion remains unconvinced that It would be a good way of inculcating thrift in the working classes to revive in any form the State lotteries which were abolished in this coMitry for very suSicient reasons. SLr Edward Grey made a statement in the House of Commons upon the cause of Germany's declaration of war against Portugal, "the most ancient of our Allies." The immediate cause was Portugal's requisitioning of the German ships lying in her home and colonial ports since the beginning of the wa.r. The shortage of ton- nage caused by the war made this step neces- sary, and Portugal promised to indemnify the owners of the vessels. Portugal's procedure would have been in order for an entirely neutral nation, but at the beginning of the war she had declared that in no circumstances would she dis- regard the duties of her ancient alliance with Great Britain. Germany had twice in 1914 raided the Portugese colony of Angota and had sought to stir up a native, retbell ion do Portugese East Africa- b "Portugal may rest assured that Great Brit- ain and the Allies will afford her all the assist- ance that she may require.
I War Against Consumption. I BRECONSHIRE COUNCIL AND THE MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION. A deputation from the Welsh Memorial As- sociation w" received on Friday week by the joint Una-nce and health committees of the Breconehire County Council to discuss the situa- tion between the county and the association. With the exception of the Breconshire and Pembroke- shire Councils, aH the Welsh county councils have entered the scheme of tte Memorial Asso- ciation. The deputation consisted of Mr D. W. Evans, Mr Sopkio Morgan, Mr Morg&n Tutton, and Dr. Murray (Llandrindod). Dr. Meredith Richards w&s present on behalf of the Welsh In- surance Commission. The Breconshire Council had so far declined to .co-operate with the association on the score of economy and on the legal considerations raised. The deputation explained matters from the as- socia.tion's point of view, and the joint commit- tees of the Breconahi.re Council will further con- eider the question at & future meeting.

I No More tndigestion. I WONDERS ACHIEVED BY MAGNESIA. It seems reasonable to suppose that in a snort time there will be no more indigestion or dyspep- sia. The old stvJ. "digestives" such as bismuth, pepsin, charcoal,'soda, etc., which after all are only temporary in their effects, are rapidly being discarded in favour of a simple antacid, known to chemists as bisurated magnesia, with the re- sult that physicians are being called upon to treat fewer cases of stomach trouble than ever be- fore. This is not so very surprising when it is remembered that, according to available statistics, over ninety per cent. of all stomach troubles are due to acidity. Bisurated magnesia, in either powder or tablet form, may readily be obtained locally from Charley and Gwillim (late R. P. Charles). Medical Hall, Brecon, T. A. Coltman, Builth Wells, W. W. Johnson, High Street, LIan- drindod Wells, and most other high-class chemists everywhere, and half-a-teaspoonful or two tablets taken in a little water after meals wiH immediate.. ly neutralise aH harmful acids in the stomach, prevent fermentation, and thus render the food easy of digestion.

Remarkable Hay Boy.! Shot from Back to Front. I ASKED FOR SERGT. RHYS HARDING. I GRAPHIC R.A.M.C. STORY. I Under date, 7th inst.. Mr Hhys Harding, form- erly of Hay, wrot<* Mr T. Stokoe: (Hay) as fol- lows :—"Very many thanks for your long and in- teresting letter which I received when I was up in the zone of action for a week's practical in- struction. It was quite, a link with old times' to read all your news. It is not often I get tetters like yours, and you can't'realise how much one appreciates a "newsy" letter. I have had what you might call my baptism of ure,' and, although things are fairly quiet now 'up the line,' stilt they were sufficiently lively for my taste. The base of operations of a field am- bulance is the main dressing station. This re- ceives cases from the advanced dressing station which (in the case of the field ambulance to which I was attached) is fed by three first aid posts which are situated in the reserve trenches, and are in charge of the regimental medical officers. Two, or more bearers of the R.A.M.C. are always ready at the first aid posts to bring the wounded down to the A.D.S., and, as they use wheeled down to the A. D the ?istance, they are not stretchers, owing to the distance, they are not able to come down by the communication trenches, but must use the road. The particular road our bearers used was swept every night from sunset to daybreak by a German machine gun, aptly christened by one of our chaps 'the Prudential man,' because he's always knocking at the door. Even the infantry men admit that our bearers have a mighty dangerous job, in fact, they say it is safer in the first line trenches if you keep Nc)ur head down. Of course, the bearers are relieved every twenty four hours, and it was one of my jobs to go with a party round the three posts. Some of the old stagers told me it w&s a quiet morning, but what, with our own and German shells exchanging com- pliments over our heads and occasional snipers potting, not to mention our anti-aircraft guns barking at some trespassers over our lines the peaceful quietness was not very marked. A number of cases were brought down during the time that we were there and some were rather serious. One man. In particular, had been shot through the left. femoral artery, and had bled considerably before being picked up. The M.O. at the A.D.S. worked from 3 o'clock in the morn- ing until 12 noon to get the man strong enough for amputation, and then they almost gave up hope. but. at last, it was decided to evacuate him to the Co. 's cleajing station, and I have hea.rd since that a successful operation was performed. and the man is getting on well. That sort of thing makes one proud to be a member of the R.A.M.C I am now looking after a scubies hospital until we go into action.. It isn't a very savoury job, but I suppose it is a part of the 'bit' that we are out here to do. Another section of this ambulance has just re- turned from a week's instruction 'up the lim.' and a remarkable thing occurred. While two of our chaps were waiting for cases at a first aid post. when a, youngster walked in carrying part of his kit. They asked what he wanted and he said "the beggars have shot me." They took him down to the A.D.S., where, on examination. they found he had been shot through from back to front, glancing round his ribs, missing his heart but apparently piercing the lung. While they were dressing him he enquired if they knew me. When they told him they did he asked them to remember Bernard Jones to me, and his whole anxiety was to know whether he would be sent down to where I was. The M.O. said he was the pluckiest lad who had ever passed through his hands. I think he wi!! get on alright. He will probably oe sent home. It is a curious coinci- dence. I have been trying to find him ever since we have been over here and we were within a few miles of each other a-H the time, and then some of our chaps were the first to attend to him."
￼ From the Pouttry Yard. I I BY "ROOSTER." I Many people imagine that because geese are of such enormous size they are dimcult to breed, but let me say at once that they are both easily bred andeasily reared. Although theycan- not be so closely confined as fowls they do not need a great amonnt of space, but of course do best where they can be allowed a free range over a. grass neld. Still I have known that a breeding pen can be kept and bred from successfully in an ordinary large fowl run, but seeing that they con- sume a considerable quantity of grass, it shows that the run must be large to supply their needs. For this reason the ordinary farmer has a great advantage over most of the poultry keepers, be- cause the amount of freedom the geese may have. The great advantage of a free range is that the birds can fine a good deal of food, and when being kept in just store condition, the grass is the first consideration. They wiM also eat a lot of rough herbage, hence many of the waste places could be used to run geese with advantage to both. Al- though it seems a -farmer's bird, many of the best geese in the country are'bred by sma]]er men who have only a few acres of land, and these give the geese a. small orchard or neld near home over which they can run. Idonotbelieveinkeeping them with ordinary fowls, because they soon foul the green and then the fowls will not touch it. A pen should consist of two geese and one gan- der, and if he is pretty active all the eggs laid should be fertile. Where the birds get a free range, it is best to give them a roosting sited for the night and any building, such as an old stable or cow shed will answer well. When the goose 'has started laying, which she will do in one of the dark corners, the eggs should be taken away and kept till there are enough for a sitting. If they are to be kept under hens from four to six will be enough according to the size of the hen, and after ten or twelve have been laid, some may be leftinthenest,so that when she has laid her batch, she can be used for hatching if so de- sired. There should not be any trouble in rear- ing the youngsters once they are hatched. The period of incubation takes from 28 to 30 days, and the neat is best when put in a cool, though not wet place, for they require more moisture in hatch- ing than chickens. Let the youngsters remain in the nest until thoroughly dry, for then they will be strong in the legs and can get about easily after their food. Right from the first treat them just as chickens fed with soft food, but see they get enough to eat, and feed more often than the smaller stock, for although they are much larger in body. their croup does not seem so large in proportion, hence they need food more of tea. If you can manage let them ha.ve free range as eoon as they can get about, and if a- nice fresh grass patch it will surprise you how much of it they will eat. This will keep them in good hea.lth and regulate the system, and if your food is good you will be able almost to see them grow t t All up and down the country there are hun- dreds of acres of land winch are not fit for any- thing else, but the feeding of rough store stock or geese, and I have put it in this form because these birds would thrive upon it with just one good meal of food at night when they come in to sleep. In some parts the birds are left out all night, and though they do not seem to hurt, the youngsters wiH be found to grow faster when warm and dry at night. Many hundred head are just half grown, and then so!d off to be grown alone by farmers having these vacant places, and in some yillages where the cottagers can have access to road sidings, they buy up a few of these birds and push them along for the market. When managed properly they form one of the best paying branches of farm stock, for during the growth they cost but little to find, and though requiring more good food to make them ready for the table, this is easily re- couped through the price they make. Anyone wanting to hatch a few should soon be en the look- out for eggs, and I am sure they would und them interesting and profitable.
