Crickhowell and Allotments. TOWN TO BE CANVASSED. Rev. H. P. Somerset, M.A. (rector of Crickhowell) pre-¡ sided at a parish meeting at the Church Schools, Crick- howell, on the 6th inst., when the question of allot- ments was discussed. Mr John Evans, Llanbedr Road, said potato cultiva- tion was a national necessity, and in a district like Crickhowell, where there was plenty of land, every facility should be offered inhabitants to acquire allot- ments. The other day he received froms from the Board of Agriculture, offering to lend him money to buy a pig, hut it was little use- to think of pigs before they had something to feed them on. Mr E. Pirie Gordon said a local landowner was pre- pared to rent Itijd? for allotments, provided an under- taking to cultivate it in a proper manner was given. He under,t-ow there was a demand for allotments, but some of the people who had been talking about the mat- 1Ær were not at that meeting, and this was disappointing. Mr Wm. Townsend, Mr A. S. Evans, Mr T. J. Allen and Mr Wm. Morgan took part in the subsequent dis- cussion, and it was pointed out that many people had no seed potatoes for planting, nor were they likely to get a.ny. A committee, comprising the Chairman, and Messrs. W. Townsend, Wm. Morgan, J. Evans and A. S. Evans, the last-named to act as convener, was appointed to canvass the town to ascertain the wishes of the in- habitants, and to report to the parish council by Tues- day next.

LLANWRTYD WELLS CONCERT,II
LLANWRTYD WELLS CONCERT, II ST. DAVID'S EVE CELEBRATION. I A very successful tea and concert were held at the Victoria Hall, Llanwrtyd Wells, on Wednesday, St. David's Eve, for the purpose of securing sufficient money to provide additional comforts for the Llanwrtyd men now fighting for their king and country. With such a worthy object in view it created no surprise to find the spacious hall crowded with an enthusiastic audience. In connection with the event the Church and the various Nonconformist denominations worked in unison to attain a great financial success, and it is gratifying to state that their anticipations were fully realised. Mr James, Rock House, was very prominent amongst those who made the arrangement?. From 200 to 300 sat down for tea. The hall was prettily decorated for the occasion. The following ladies presided at the tables Mrs D. I. -Williams and Miss Pritchard, Mrs Rees and Miss Coult- hard, Mrs Williams and Miss Jenkins, Mrs Thomas and Harris. After tea the sale of gifts took place, and these were disposed of by Mr Williams, Myrtle. A concert followed. An excellent programme had been prepared. The president was Mr T. H.

Rid Your Stomach of Gas.I
Rid Your Stomach of Gas. PREVENT FOOD FERMENTATION BY TAKING MAGNESIA AFTER MEALS. To take drugs or artificial digest ants is surely a. foolish as well as a da-ngcvo-Lis plan when many of our most eminent physicians shave furnished ir- refutable proof ttioat practically lull forms of diges- tive and stomach trouble arise from acidity and consequent fermentation of the food contents. Pepsin, bismuth, and soda have little or no effect upon this harmful ¡ac.id; drugs and medicines aften deaden the nerves of the stomach, and thus tend to -aggravate the trouble, but pure bisurated magnesia has none of these serious drawbacks- it is just a harmless antacid and food corrective, which miay be taken at all times by both old and young. Physicians know this, and that is why they invariably advise sufferers from indigestion, dyspepsia-, lioattburn, flatulence, wind, etc., to ob- tain a little bisurated magnosia from the chemist, either in powder or tablet form, and take half &, teaspoonful of the powder or two tablets witdi little water 'after meals. This overcomes the root cause of all the troubl-e-neutralis.es the acid prevents the food fermenting, dispeJs wind, and enables the stomach and digestive organs to quickly regain the strength and tone needed to ensure perfect digestion, of the food. Readers wishing to try this excellent recipe will be glad to flemm that Messrs. Charles and Gwillim (late R. E. Charles), Medical Hall, Brecon; T. A. Golt- maii, BuMi Wells; and AV. W. Johnson, High Street, Lliandrimdod Weils, now have the genuine bisurated magnesia in stock. A large bottle of the powder form can be obtained for 3/ while the compressed tablets costs 1/3 and 2/6 per flask. Every package is accompanied by a, binding gua.r- antee of satisfaction or money back, and the pur- chase price is instantly refunded in full in cases where bisurated magnesia fails to produce the re- sults anticipated. )

Singular Uandovery Case. SUED FOR SLANDER. John Davies, Penyfedw, Cilycwm, near Llandovery, at a Sheriff's Court,, conducted by Mr W. W. Brodie, at I Llanelly on Thursday, sued a widow, Jane Jones, of Cilycwm, for damages fcr slander. Mr D. Jones ap- peared for the plaintiff. Defendant did not attend. Mr Douglas Jones said his client had, for the past 18 years, managed a farm, and in February of last year ho was going to Llandovery, when he saw the plaintiff at Cilycwm. Defendant, who was a widow of indepen- dent means, asked him to bring her haH-a-sack of flour from the Llandovery Co-operative Stores, but he in- formed her he was afraid he could not do so that day, as he. had a load of coal and the day was wet. Plaintiff called at the stores and informed the manager what had transpired. It appeared that the flour was booked to Mrs Jones, and was subsequently handed over to an- other man for delivery to the defendant, who paid for it. Defendant, however, accused the plaintiff of hav- ing stolen half-a-sack of flour in her name from the Co-operative Stores, and asked the constable of the vil- lage to arrest him. A writ was issued, but defendant did not put in an appearance. The jury awarded the plaintiff £20 as damages.

I Hay's Council,I
I Hay's Council, I Local Auctiqn Mart. I NATIONAL SERVICE ORGANISATION. At Hay Urban Council's meeting, on the 5th inst., a circular letter was received from the Local Govern- ment Board on the question of national service, and suggesting that the council should give every assistance possible from the national register. A letter from the County Council on the subject was also read. The letter stated that, at a conference held at Brecon re- cently, it was decided to ask all district councils to form national service committees for their areas, and the council were accordingly asked to form 6uch a com- mittee. The council resolved that a committee, consisting of the whole council (including the surveyor), should be appointed, with power to add to their number. Hay Auction Mart. I I lie committee, appointed by the council, gave their report with regard to the letting of a portion of the Coal Wharf to Air T. J. Phillips, aiict-ioneer, for the purpose of selling stock, etc. After discission, the council resolved that the chair- man and clerk should interview Mr Phillips and ex- plain certain matters to him with regard to the let-tins of the Coal Wharf. Application was made hy Mr F. G. Price, auctioneer' Talgarth, for permission to conduct sales of stock. &c in the Coal Wharf. J Mr Stokoe asked who cleared the ground down after a sale, and suggested that it be stipula.ted in the agree- ment that the ground should be cleaned down after 1 a sale, as the rent, t5, was very low. After some discussion, Mr J. Morgan suggested that they should let the matter stand for a year and see how things went. This was agreed to, and the application ef Mr P G. Price was granted. Exploiting by Dealers? Mr T. J. Stokoe said it seemed to him that the town was being exploited by dealers, who came to the town on market days and obstructed the street.s, by motor- cars in the narrowest parts and where the most traffic was. These dealers, he said, drew their cars up in Bridge Street and laid a net for the country people comjng to the market. There was a lot of complaint about it. Mr John Morgan agreed, and aked if it would not be possible to get them to go over to the other side of the street? Mr Stokoe said if a ratepayer advanced his goods a little beyond his shop he was dropped on. and vet these men could come and do as they liked. Mr Enoch George: We must declare it a sacred spot' (Laughkr.) Mr James Cater said it was the people- crowding" round and selling which increased the obstruction. Mr Stokoe remarked that they had a market, and that was where they should go. It was a serious danger to the public. Mr James Cater suggested that the surveyor should see these dealers and ask thein to go over to the other side of the street, and point out to them the danger to the public caused by the obstruction. This was agreed to. Messrs. J. M. Maddy and S. M. Jones were appointed overseers. The deputy-clerk submitted the estimate for the dis- trict rate, which, he said, amounted to 3/- which was a reduction of 6d on the previous year. In reply to a question, he said that the rateable value of the town had sunk about £80. The estimate of 3/- in the £ was adopted. Mr John Morgan submitted a report on behalf of the Works Committee on the repairs required to be done to Hay Mill. The council decided to have the recommended re- pairs carried out. The Water Supply. Mr Stokoe said the v,,at-er supply at the fire on Saturday night was not very good. There was a very poor pressure of water at that end of the town, and he asked the reason? The surveyor said it was owing to several burst pipes in the locality, and which had not been attended to. Mr James Cater said some recognition of the services of Mr A. Howard (deputy-clerk) should be made. His services, on numerous occasions, were invaluable, and at one time he had done a portion of the surveyor's work. He was also invaluable at their committee meetings, and he had done a large amount of extra work, extending over a few years. He proposed that they make a grant of five guineas to him for his useful services. Mr T. J. Stokoe seconded, and remarked that they had all been struck by the way Mr Howard had work- ed, and he was sure they could never ask too much of him. Mr J. Morgan supported and said that, as chairman of the Works Committee, he would like to testify to the deputy-clerk's services there. It was a great pleasure to work with him. The chairman stated that Mr Howard had done verv good work, especially in connection with the flag days, besides other invaluable assistance. Mr Enoch George also testified to Mr Howard's ser- vices and said they deserved recognition. The proposition to grant five guineas was carried unanimously. Mr A. Howard thanked the council, and said he ap- preciated their kind words very much. Mr Gilby (surveyor) aNo spoke.
Serious -Charge. I
Serious Charge. I PARENTS' ALLEGED NEGLECT. 4e- REMARKABLE EVIDENCE AT COL WYN POLICE I COURT. Colwyn petty sessions on the 5tli inst., bet Messrs H. Evan-Thomas (in the chair) W: ilrotliero and J. W. Sheen, James Matthews and Lilian Matthews, Tynrhoc), Llansantfraed-in-Elvel, were charged with neglecting their infant son, Ernest James Matthews. Mr Jones Williams (Brecon) pro- secuted on behalf of the N.S.P.CVC. Dr. Black Jones, stated that on the 22nd of December last he received a message and visited Tynrheol Cot- tage. On the road about half-a-mile from the house he passed defendant James Matthews, but he did not know him. Witness arrived at Tvnrheol about 3.30 p.m., and saw Mrs Matthews and the baby. The babi- was very thin and looked starved. The mother told him that. the baby had heen fed with water in which she had soaked a biscuit. He warned her of the con- sequences, and told her that if the' child died there would have to be an inquest. He saw James Matthews when on his. way home, and on the following Sunday again visited the ttouse and saw the babv which was slightly better. He then weighed the child with its clothes on, and it was only üJ lbs. He gave the mother full directions how to treat the child. On the 29th of December he again saw the child at Mrs Harley's, Bryntrwj.pan, and it had improved very much. It was on his advice that Mrs Harley took the child, and if it had been allowed to remain longer with the parents it would not have lived twenty-four hours. Mrs Margaret Jane Harlev, Bryntrwspan, stated that she kttcndeA Mrs Matthews during her ilhiess, and was with her for nine days off and oil, and the child during that time seemed to he going on all right. She told the parents how to treat the child. She fed it with a tea- spoon. When she saw tlw child on the 22nd of Decem- ber. she noticed a change, and she was- satisfied that he had been neglected. She complained of his condition, and the mother said that she could not get sufficient milk. The father wanted the child to be reared on the breast, therefore avoiding the expense of providing milk. The baby was not strong enough to feed from the bottle, and the mother said that she had fed it with water off a biscuit. It wasi on the 24th of December that she took the child from the mother, and took him to the male defendant's father's house, and Mrs Matthews (defendant's mother) shut the door in her face. The child was in such a condition that she was afraid that it would not live. She could smell brandy about the child's clothes. The father told her that he had given the child some brandv. and his hand was a little heavier than he thought it was, and the child turned black in the face after taking the brandy. She was allowed to take the child to the grandmother's house by promising that she would not leave it there. When she took the child home she had to feed it with the spoon because it was too weak to take the bottle. The father tailed at Bryntrwspan and said that he wanted to give the child some gin, as he thought a little would do him good. She weighed the child in a day or two after she took it over and it only weighed 5 lb. She had not yet received any money for the mainten- ance of the child. When she visited Tynrheol with In- s-pector Evans there was only a crust of bread and some bacon dripping in the house. Inspector R. Evans, Brecon, stated that he visited Tynrheol on- the 1st January. He saw the child at Bryntrwsnan, and it looked like an old person withered up, and the skin was hanging, and the child only weigh- ed 5 lbs. The mother told him that it had to live on water off a soaked biscuit, and that it wa,s not her fault, as she could not have milk for the child as the father considered it too expensive. She said that she would not have the child back as it would be starved, as she was .starving herself. The only food that she had in the house that day was a small crust of bread and a jam pot half full of bacon dripping. She further told him that she could not get any money from her husband to get food. He saw the husband and told him that most likely he would hear more about it. Then he told him about the wife being without food, and he said that there was plenty of food in the house when he went out that morning. The male defendant said that his sister gave the child the brandy, and she knew how to treat children. The mother stated she had no milk for the child, and her husband never gave her any money but what she took from him when he was under the influence of drink. The charge again?* the mother was dismissed, and the case against the father was adjourned till 16th April.

I I Talgarth and Food-Supply, j INSTRUCTIVE AGRICULTURAL MEETING. On Friday evening a meeting of farmers and others --organised by the Breconshire War Agricultural Com- niitt,-e-was held in the Talgarth Town Hall. Hon. H. C. Devereux presided. Amongst those present were Aid. Mervyn Davies, Messrs. J. P. Prosser (Trevithel), ,f. Wilson (Rhos), D. Evans (Porthamel), Jenkin Evans (Great House), W. Gunter, Jones (Brechfa), Stephens (Tredurn), Prosser (Genffordd), D. P. Hopkins (Iironllys Court), Ed. Ricketts (Trebarri,?d), T. Price (Trex,)hillip) Court), Ed. Ricketts (Trebarried), T. Price (Trephillip), Addresses: were delivered by Mr R. Prosser, R.Sc., and Mr W. Williams (Organiser for the district), show- ing that under the existing conditions, owing to the submarine war, the. ships bringing imports to this coun- try were being sunk, causing a serious depletion of ton- nage, which, unless we were able to produce very much more corn and potatoes, would cause a most serious shortage of our food supply. Farmers were urged to plough up grass land, so that a very much larger quantity may be under cultivation. This, said the ———————— -pt uker. was the best way they in these districts could counteract the submarine. The application of basic slag and a mmonia as a. fertiliser was explained. The difli. ulty in-obtaining sufficient labour was referred to, hut could he overcome for it was probable a Labour Battalion available for the land would shortly be located at Brecon. It therefore behoved farmers, to bestir themselves and make appliaation in good time. ft was pointed out by the chairman that the Govern- ment recognised that the farmers had a grievance, with the re.-ult that the Prime Minister had- promised help by a guarantee of prices for 5 years. He also pointed out that it wais vita! for every small holder and every" cottager to put every yard of land under cultivation. Aid. Mervyn Davies explained that the census of the food supply recently taken for the country was not yet scrutinised.
