Crickhowell Woman's Fate. MISSING SINCE OCTOBER. SAD INQUEST STORY. An inquest was held at. Pantygoch, near Abergavenny, on Thursday, on a Crickhowell woman, named Eliza N. Evans (38), who had been missing since October 29th. Henry Charles Evans, insurance agent and husband of the deceased, said he missed his wife in the evening, and thought she had gone for a walk, as she was in the habit of doing. He identified the deceased by her skirt and rings. She was depressed at times, but had never threatened to take her life. They were on good terms. Richard Martin, a keeper, of Gilwern, said he found thd body onr the gravel bed of the river Usk on Wed- nesday morning. There had been a rise in the river of about 3 feet, and deceased was not in that place the previous afternoon. Dr. C. J. Evans, of Crickhowell, said he attended de- j ceased last September and October. She suffered from influenza and neurasthenia, which caused her to be de- pressed. She improved in health, however. Sergt. Edwards, of Crickhowell, produced deceased's coat and hat, which were found on the river bank near Crickhowell Bridge. The river was very much flooded at the time. A"' verdict of "Suicide whilst- of unsound mind" was re- turned.
I Presteign Auction. GOOD BUSINESS. Messrs. Morris, Marshall and Poole held their February auction last week, when a fair, all-round supply of sheep and cattle were penned. Between 200 and 300 sheep and pigs were first offered and practically all found buyers, viz., F. Barnes taking 136. The Boultibrook Tegs made up to 80/ and a big pig from this farm realised 920. About 90 fat cattle found a ready sale, though prices were hardly so firm as a month ago. The 130 store cattle were the chief feature of the sale. Mr Edwards of Stapleton sent 16, the first 10 realised L,32 10s. and the remaining 6 £32 15s. Ten strong steers from Mr Owens, Burfa, went to Mr J. Evans, Minsterly, at R33 15s, and the same gentleman took the Stocken bullocks from Mr Thomas at £28 10s. Mr Morgan, Shrewsbury, secured the 10 steers from Mr Owens, Even- jobb at k26 10s. A beautiful draft of 12 Hereford steers from Mr Edwards, Kinsham, elicited keen bidding, and ultimately went to Mr Morgan, Shrewsbury, at R34 10. For the smaller lot-s and barrens there was good bid- ding. Seldom have we seen a better company round the ring. The next sale we are informed is fixed for Thursday, March 22nd. and it is hoped to make it a big success.

Are the Welsh People allowing the opportunity to pass of assisting the Nation's Food Supplies by the keep- ing of Poultry, and the Production of Eggs? The question is again very forcibly brought forward by the statement in the Press that during the first week in January this year over 7 Millions of EGGS were received from Egypt, and 360,000 from America. The present is an opportune time to extend Egg and Poultry Industry in Wales, and the Cambrian Railways Company, through the Agricultural Organ- isation Society, are prepared to arrange Lectures, addressed by Experts (free of charge), at any town or village on the Company's system. Full information, and Leaflets on the rearing ot Poultry, Egg Production, etc., oan be obtained on application to the Station masters, or to Mr Herbert Williams, Superintendent of the Line, Oswestry.

County Appeal Tribunal Builth Tradesmen Appeal. j THE WAR AND SUBSTITUTES. I Breconshire County Appeal Tribunal met at the Guild Hall, Brecon, on Thursday. Mr D. T. Jeffreys was in the chair. Members present were Messrs. W. S. Miller, W. F. Parry de Winton, H. Evan Thomas and Edward Butler. Military representatives attending were Messrs. C. G. Inglis (Builth). C. W. Woosnam (Builth Rural), and Gwilym C. James (County). Mr Owen Price repre- sented the Board of Agriculture. Builth Cases. I Mr Frank L. Morns, grocer, baker, provision merchant and seedsman, Builth, appealed against the decision of the local tribunal in granting him no exemption. His grounds of appeal were to continue in his habitual em- ployment, and also that of financial hardship. Appli- cant was 3a years of age, a married man, and in Class B 1. Mr Morris said he was responsible for the manage- ment of the whole business. The business for the size of the town was a very important one. Applicant. gave the figures of the turnover for last year. Their busi- ness, he said, was absolutely essential to the agricul- tural community of the district. They did a large trade in seeds. There was one other merchant in the town besides his father, who was 64 years of age and of poor health. If he were taken the bakehouse might have to be closed down altogether. His baker, who had been exempted, was in Class C 3, and he had been ill for the last week, and, being a practical baker himself, he had done the baking, and for the la.st week he had worked an average of 16 hours a day. They supplied the restaurant which cat-ered for farmers' wives ftnd servants on market days, besides the ordinary baking. The seed ;season was about to begin, and, if he had to go, there would be no one to supply and judge the seeds for the farmers. Five men had left the firm to join the Army. Mr C. G. Inglis (military representative): How long were you in the hospital at the time of your illness? Applicant: For isix weeks. The Military Representative: Who carried on the business then? Mr Morris: Well, my father did; it was a case of had to. The Military Representative Well, he can do it now then. The Chairman: How many employees have you got in the shop and the bakery? Mr Morris Four in the shop, two in the restaurant, and two in the bakehouse—all girls and an apprentice, besides the baker. I have a very heavy insurance to meet. The Military Representative: How many bakers are there in Builth ? Mr Morris: There are four. The Chairman: We grant you exemption to the 1st of May, and you will have to obtain permission to ap- peal again. I Builth Tailor. I Mr Edgar Thomas Price, tailor and outfitter, Builth Wells, a married man, aged 41, and in Class C 2, was an appellant from the Builth Tribunal, and appealed on the grounds of hardship. Mr Price said he was a partner in the business with his father, who was 68 years of age. He had managed the business for a number of years on account of his father's ill-health. He had no man and his father did very little at the tailoring. Mr C. G. Inglis (military representative): But your father still attends to the shop-at least he is always there when I call in. Mr Price: I am afraid you have not been there for some time—for about three years. (Laughter.) The Military Representative (laughingly): Well, I did not think it was as long as that, but I should not like to say. Mr Price said his tailor had left him, and had not been discharged as was rumoured. The Military Representative: Your tailor left you be- cause he could not get enough work, didn't he? Applicant: He was a coat-hand and would not do any other work besides coats. The Chairman I thought the tailors went on strike at Builth. Appellant: Oh, no, there is not enough of them to strike. (Laughter.) The Chairman We give you conditional exemption, having regard to your age and class. One of the Two Plumbers. I The military representative, appealed in respect of Walter Stanley Deacon, master plumber, Builth, aged 37, married, and in Class B 1. The decision of the local tribunal was that he should undertake work of national importance. In reply to questions by the military representative, appellant said that there was only one other plumber in Builth besides himself. Mr Deacon said he did the gas fitting from the Gas Works, and was the only man in Builth capable of do- ing gas fitting. The military representative's appeal was rejected and exemption granted to 1st April, leave to appeal again to be obtained. The War and Substitutes. I Mr Lloyd, the employer of Wm. A. J. King, Builth, waggoner, age 19, and single, apealed against the de- cision of the local tribunal in providing him with a sub- stitute. Mr Vaughan Vaughan, Builth, appeared for the employer. Mr Vaughan said a substitute was provided, but was found unsuitable, owing to mental deficiency. (Laugh- ter.) The Chairman: Mr Miller here has had a similar ex- perience with two substitutes. (Laughter.) Mr Woosnam (military representative): The war has a very frightening effect on the nerves. (.Renewed laughter.) The chairman said that when a substitute was pro- vided it was subject to the approval of the Board of Agriculture representative, and the substitute had to be to his satisfaction before provided. I Mr Owen Price (Board of Agriculture): On a farm of 177 acres, as this is, one man should certainly be left. Exemption to 1st May was granted. Would Plough More. I Rice James Thomas was appealed for by his employer, Mr Powell, Thomas, it was stated, was a waggoner, aged 23, and the Builth rural tribunal gave exemption, subject to substitution, against which his employer ap- pealed. The farm was 160 acres, and applicant ploughed 21 acreis, and said he would plough more if he could keep his man. In reply to questions by the military representative, applicant said he had a son, but he was away mining. He was a good agriculturist and had been discharged from the Army, owing to his health. Mr Owen Price: Does this soq work on the farm at all ? Applicant: He does occasionally, but he is not a sticker. (Laughter). The Chairman: We grant your man exemption till a suitable substitute is provided, to the satisfaction of the local Board of Agriculture representative. Applicant: He is no good unless he is a good plough- man. The Chairman: Yes, alright, you can talk to Mr Samuel, the Board of Agriculture representative. I Co-operative Society's Manager. I The military representative (Mr Gwilym C. James) ap- pealed against the exemption granted to Wm. Elliott, age 27, a married man, grocer's manager and buyer to the Abercrave Cc-operative Society. Mr George Tudor appeared to support the case. Mr Idris Davies, secretary to the society, said that since the local tribunal meeting they had advertised daily for a manager, but had been unable to get one. The turnover was about C140 per week, and the society was representative of a large number of colliers, as it was the principal shop in Abercrave. The boot-repair- ing, he maintained, was of much importance, as the col- liers' boots were repaired by them. The tribunal granted conditional exemption. The military representative's appeal against C. E. Willinghaem. Brynmawr. grocer's haulier, warehouse- man and canvasser, which was adjourned from the last court for the man to be re-examined, was now heard. Applicant said he was now in Cla.58 C 1, and owing to this the tribunal considered it advisable that the man should remain in his present employment, and condi- tional exemption was accordingly granted. I Hay Rural Cases. I The military representative appealed agaiftst the ex- emption granted to Victor H. Harpur, traction engine driver, age 19, and Class A, on account of the man's a ge. Wm. Edwards, Talybont. appeared, and, in response to the military representative's questions, said the man had been driving the engine for 16 months and had been hauling pitwocd. There was one other man I>esides Harpur en the engine. Mr Edwards said they had 2.600 ton of timber to re- move by a certain date, and they supplied pitwood to the largest collieries in South Wales. The tribunal allowed the military representative's ap- peal, but the man would not be called upon for one month. The military representative further appealed in re- spect of Ivor Rhys Morgan, ironmonger. Hay. Appli- cant stated he carried on his brother's ironmongery shop at Hav. and said his two brothers were serving. ?1;1.d c:' from a"flild\:d btt:y on ri:e;: er's business, and was not a resident of this country. He was in Class C 1. Exemption to 1st Ifai was granted, the military re- presentative having withdrawn his appeal. The case of Wm. Percy Davies, innkeeper, age 36 and married, in which the appeal was by the military repre- sentative, next came on for hearing. The case present- ed by the military representative wa& that the man was not on work of national importance. Wm. Davies said they brewed all their ales, and his wife assisted in the business. Mr James maintained that the man's wife could carry on the business, and the appeal was allowed by the tribunal, but the man would not be called up for one month. Yitradgynlais Butcher. I The case of Edward A. Yerbury, butcher and slaugh- terman, Ystradgynlais, was taken in private. The ap- peal was by the military representative, and the man was married and aged 30. The tribunal granted con. ditional exemption, owing to the figures given by ap- plicant. Mr McTurk's Farms. I Mr George Tudor appeared on behalf of Mr Robert McTurk, Cnewr, Cray, who appealed for John Harris Davies, waggoner and hedger, age 22. Mr McTurk said the farm could not be worked pro- perly without this man, as there was only one other man on the farm. Since he was last before the tribunal he had lost one man, who had joined the Army, and one medically rejected had also left his employ. Mr Gwilym James (military representative): Now let me see, you have about 20 or 30 farms haven't you, Mr McTurk. Mr McTurk: Not quite so many. (Laughter).—I have five farms. The Military Representative: And you have 16 new employees. Is there any reason why you should not move men from farm to farm? Mr McTurk I have done so. The Military Representative: I am not prepared to deal any further with this, and I would suggest that someone should go over Mr McTurk's land and see how many men are really necessary to carry on the fa,, We Chairman: I expect it has been done. Mr James: I do not know. Eventually, exemption was granted until a substitute wais provided. Brecknock Rural Cases. I Wm. Roger Jones, aged 21, was appealed for by his father, who said he was a milkman, cowman and shep- herd. The farm was 264 acres, and he had only two men on the farm besides himself. They kept 80 cattle and 13 horses. Mr Jones said they had two contracts for supplying milk. Conditional exemption was granted. The father of Penry John Davies, age 18, appealed on his behalf. Appellant said his son was a waggoner and cowman, on a farm of 233 acres. The military representative submitted that there were four sons of military age and not one was serving. Exemption was granted till a substitute was provided. Conditional exemption was granted Wm. John Thomas, whose father appeared. "Knew as Much as He Did." I Mr Vaughan, the employer of George Jones, age 27, appeared and said he was a waggoner, and the only em- ployee he had on 200 acres of land. The Military Representative: But you have a boy of 15 to help you. Applicant: Well, I can &ee you know as much as I do. (Laughter.) The Military Representative: Well, we want to give the court all the facts of the case. Conditional exemption was allowed. David Anderson Price, age 25, was granted exemption till a substitute was provided. Which He Could Spare. I Philip Jones, age 21, horseman, was appealed for by his father, who said his son was a tenant of a farm and helped him at his farm also. He had two other sons at home besides this one. The military representative submitted that one son should serve. The Chairman: Which son can you spare best? Applicant: I can't spare one of them by right. Mr Owen Price suggested that they adjourn the case and have all the sons before them. The chairman, after further consultation, again ask- ed applicant which son he could spare best, and he re- plied that he did not know. The Chairman: Well, I am afraid the tribunal will have to decide for you. (Laughter.) Eventually, the appeal on behalf of the son aged 21 was dismissed. The employer of Chais. Powell, waggoner and cowman, next appeal against the local tribunal's decision to grant no exemption. Applicant said his farm required a lot of fencing, and, if the man could be left till April to do the fencing, he would then release him. The Chairman: The wants of the Army are more urgent and the man must serve. The appeal is re- jected. A further number of cases from the Brecon rural tri- bunal were heard, and the decisions were as follow:— Four applicants were granted exemption till a suitable substitute was provided; two appeals were dismissed; conditional exemption was granted in seven cases; and one appellant was granted exemption to 1st May. Brecon Butcher Applies for a Substitute. I Mr H. W. Phillips, butcher, Ship Street, Brecon, made application to the court for a substitute. Mr Phillips said his slaughterman had gone and he could not do the work. The Chairman: But we do not give substitutes. Mr Owen Price (Board of Agriculture) and his officials pro- vide the substitutes—we only give the orders. Mr Phillips: I have applied to the Labour Exchange, but they nnot find me a man. Mr C. W. Best, the Brecon military representative, said it was practically impossible for Mr Phillips to get a substitute from the Army authorities. He had better try and get a man above military age through the Labour Exchange.

I Uandrindod Man Falls. I NEATH AND BRECON EMPLOYEE. I Llandrindod Wells has given another of its sons in the fight for freedom, right and justice. News was re- ceived last week that Able-Seaman Fred Shopland, youngest son of Mr and Mrs W. Shopland, Brookland Road, Llandrindod Wells, had fallen in action in France. He was 21jL years of age. Educated at the National School, Fred Shopland was formerly employed at Mr W. W. Johnson's Pharmacy, and, subsequently, at the County Club. He was a faith- ful member of Holy Trinity Church Choir, and on several occasions was responsible for solos in anthems, and on festival occasions. He was a young man of irre- proachable personal character and of genial and kindly disposition, and much regret was felt when he decided three or four years ago. to leave his native town. He I was successful in securing a good position on the Neath and Brecon Railway, and at the time of his enlistment he was a guard on the trains running between Neath and Ystradgynlais. Feeling the call of duty, he paid a visit to his respected parents at Llandrindod Wells and frankly told them that he felt it was his duty to offer his services to the Sate, and, happily. his parents also felt it to be their duty to encourage him to do so. j Fred went'back to his situation, and soon after, with a colleague of the same railway company, joined the Royal Na.val Division, being placed in the Drake Battalion, He was trained at the Crystal Palace and Blandford (Dorset), and only had one leave of absence. He went to France on November 21st. and was soon after in the trenches. His letters were cheerful, but in his last he spoke of the bitter cold the men were experiencing, and immediately after a splendid parcel of warm clothing and comforts was dispatched by his parents, supple- mented by valuable gifts from the Local Committee. The parcel, unfortunately, never reached him as he had fallen before it could possibly have been delivered. Much sympathy is felt with the bereaved family, who have received many letters, including one from Pte. Fred Gough, a close chum of the fallen sailor, who is in hospital, having been wounded for tho third or fourth ,-time.

CYCLING. Secondhand Swindles. At this time of the year it is necessary to warn the public against a peculiarly dangerous form of swindle which usually becomes rampant with the spring. I re- fer to the gentleman who offers a bicycle practically new, but alleged to be second-hand, for some specious reason. The most popular form to-day is that a friend of his has been "called up" or "joined the army" how- ever he cares to phrase it. It may be news to many that there is quite a trade carried on in these bogus second-hand bicycles. They are made and sold to the advertiser at round about t2 each. Offered at about jM they show a very handsome profit. The tyreis are usually muddied a little tc give the bicycle the appear- ance of a second-hand, and if you should remark on the new appearance you will usually be told that the mysterious late owner was "very particular about his machine." Or else that he had just bought it before being called up. One man who advertises largely has already spent one term in gaol but this has not prevent- ed him carrying on the business in the way which keeps him just within the law. Sometimes he offers to send the machine on approval, on receipt of cash, but if you don't approve you will find it a matter of extreme dif- ficulty to get your money back. Sometimes he even sends the bicycle on approval relying upon the novice's inability to tell a good bicycle from a bad one, to com- plete the sale. Now to Avoid the Swindler. There are one or two hints which 'will easily enable my readers to detect these swindlers from the genuine advertisers of second-hands. In the first place, if you see an advertisement running week after week from the same address you may quite safely conclude that it is not a genuine second-hand advertisement. If you or I have a bicycle to sell we don't go on spending pounds on it. Next, be very wary of the advertise- ment from an address some distance away. The gen- uine second-hand seller advertises in his own local paper, where people can come to see the machine. Thirdly, if you have had no experience of a bicycle, never think of buying without submitting the machine to the criticism of an experienced friend. Fourthly, be- ware of the individual who is going abroad, or who has just bought a car, or who has joined the army. The king of all these swindlers adopts all these disguises and so successfully as to make an excellent living out of his dupes—who are paying him between t4 and £51 for £ 2's of gimcrack rubbish.
MOTOR CYCLING. The Call of the Motor Cycle. When the light car and the cycle car were introduced a few years ago there were many who emphatically pre- dicted that the day of the motor cycle and sidecar were over. It was argued, quite erroneously as it has turn- ed out, but at the time not unreasonably, that the small motor car would within the space of a very few years altogether usurp tli, position of the side car com- bination. Never, however, was there a more mistaken prediction. Not only has the light car failed to take the place of its rival, but, as a matter of fact since the introduction of the small car, the number of motor cycles and side car- has increased enormously. The de- mand for a combination outfit is very great indeed, es- pecially among married people. When there is a child a place is generally found for it on the carrier or in the front of the side car. Often it is claimed that motor cycles are greatly overloaded: that they are called upon to carry a far bigger weight than is intended. In some cases thismay be true, but the present day motor cycle is so excellently constructed that it renders it quite capable of carrying an extra passenger in comfort with- out putting any undue strain upon the machine. The modern motor cycle is a marvellous piece of machinery, and is able to withstand the greatest hardships. If proof of this were needed, which it is not, since it L, a recognised fact, we have only to remember the wonder- ful performances of the motor cycle in the present war. To Time the Magneto. Although this is not really a very difficult task it is one of which the majority of motor cyclists fight shy. But it is very useful to be able to do it when occasion arises, and in these days of such acute labour shortage it is a thing that one may very likely have to do for oneself. You want, first of all, to have a clear know- lodge as to when you want the spark to occur. The three usual "positions" of sparking are:—(a) When the piston is a fraction from the top position on its upward compression stroke (when the exhaust valve is closed that is): This "position" is usually chosen for very fast work; (b) When the piston is just at the top on the compression stroke; useful for all-round work; (c) When the piston is a fraction of an inch from the top on the downward, or firing stroke; useful for heavy and side- car work. Between these three positions there is an po,,itions therc, an infinite variety to suit the varying whims of various engines.- To time the magneto remove the cover from the driving gear and loose the chain-wheel on the armature shaft by unscrewing the lock nut, inserting a couple of screw drivers behind the chain wheel and t giving each a slight tap in turn. Leave the chain in position. Open the engine compression tap and with the aid of a bit of wire test the position of the piston. Move the engine pulley wheel until the piston is dead on top of the compression stroke (when both valves are closed). Set the spark control lever at two-thirds re- tarded, and, making suM the piston has not moved, turn the armature of the magneto until the points of the contact breaker are just about to break. The lock nut of the chain which should then be tightened and the gearca.se replaced.
I MOTORING. I Clean the Crank Chamber. It is one of the commonest sights to see a pool of dirty oil on the road where a car has been standing for a little while. This is most objectionable to pedest- rians, especially ladies, while it is almost as objection- able to other car owners. In spite of the- obviouj drawbacks, however, comparatively few motorists ever seem to bother about cleaning the crank chambers. It is quite a simple operation, and one that should be re- gularly performed after every few thousand miles of running. All the oil should be drained out of the crank chamber at regular intervals, a good squirt of parraffin oil being given to each cylinder before hand. The oil naturally flows much more freely aid brings away with it far more dirt if the draining is done while the engine is hot. For this reason it is not at all a bad plan to do the job immediately after a. long run, covering the radiator in order to keep the heat in for as long as possible. Leave the drain taps open for some time after the oil has apparently ceased to flow, as much oil will have collected on the cylinder walls and in odd corners. and this will take a good while to flow down. A final swill with paraffin will complete the internal clean. Always after draining out the oil give ample opportunity for the crank chamber to re-fill. It simplifies matters if the oil be warmed before it is pour- I ed into the tank. I To Get Out of Mud. I had an experience last week a description of which I think may prove useful to other motorists, since it is always liable to happen to anyone who ever leaves the beaten track. I was calling at a farm house on busi- ness, and as it was raining when I arrived and as I was making a stay of an hour or more, I gladly accepted the farmer's offer to run the car under a cart shed. When I returned to the car-I was away nearly three hours- I found that the wheels had sunk into the ground about six inches or so. I started up, but the wheels merely revolved round and round, all the time getting deeper than ever into the mud. We tried putting sacks be- neath the wheels, we threw down some straw, and then a lot of sand, but it was no use. I then remembered a tip I saw practised on a golf course some years ago when a similar thing happened to a friend's car. I let the air out of the back tyres, and thus afforded the re. quired traction as the width of the tyres is so greatly increased. Once more I started up, put the clutch in very slowly and very gently, and without a moment's hesitation the car moved forward. The power must be applied gradually in order not to injure the tyres and tubes. It is much easier to inflate the tyres again than it is to dig and use boards, sacks, etc. I The Hub.

Y stradgynlais Appeal Fails. The Court of Appeal on Friday heard the case in which Mr William Maurice Salter, Llwynycro-y. Brecon Road Ystradgynlais, applied for judgment or new trial in the action tried at Swansea before Mr Justice Atkin and a common jury. Defendants were Miss G. M. Powell- Jones, Hamilton Street, Cardiff, and her employer. the South WaJes Engineering Supply Company. Mr Lincoln Reed (for the appellants) said the action was one to re- cover damages for personal injuries sustained by the plaintiff on September 30th, 1915, as a result of a col- lision which occurred between plaintiff and Miss Powell- Jones, who were both riding motor cycles, on the road at Rhos Cilybebyll. Without calling upon the counsel for the respondents, the court dismissed the appeal with costs.
