WASTE IN WAR-TIME. Sir,—Why should we indulge in drink luxuries in war- time? By so doing we help the enemy and deprive our own people of food. I think Christian people should ris-e up against the misuse of barley and see that none is wasted for the production of what we can very well do without. America is crying out on this count and even the women of our country occasionally fall victim to the temptations of alcohol. Surely the time has come when there should be Prohibition? Yours, &c., February 4tb, 1918. J.M.
WYE FISH AND FOOD. Sir,—I wish to say something about the rivers. The task is brief, because almost all that can be said on the subject has been fully said already. A reserve supply of food, probably larger than has yet been esti- mated, i,, left almost untouchtd. The sheer waste of it is up against us allspedally the poor, to whom the price of meat has long been prohibitive. The first sug- gestion is the close netting of the rivers for coarse fish, which destroy and eat up the bulk of the better kinds of fish. Tliio would both provide food and prevent its destruction. We are told that coarse fish are not edible. We differ, and so does the Parliamentary Fresh Water Fish Committee, which has issued a large number of booklets showing us how to cook everything from pike to eels. The next suggestion is that sal- mon, trout and better kinds of fish should be judicious- ly netted, thinning them out for the provision of food, but still leaving plenty there to carry on. Netting can- not be done by people who do not understand it. It needs experience, and we should have to rely on the ser- vices paid, and voluntary, of old fishermen and of fish- ing owners, who would know how to set about the job, ,IIl t' times when different kinds- of fish were in sea- son. Then, to complete the purpose we have in mind, this flsli should he distributed fairly among the poor at a low price, just sufficient to meet the cost of the scheme. Some time this year the Parliamentary Com- mittee will surely wake up and stretch itself, but at this stage of food shortage I feel confident that the proprietors- themselves will step in first and under- take the matter. As the first to call attention to the wastage in the Wye, in June, 1916, 1 should like to say for all of us that we have no axe to grind in this. Here and there we find people of one school of thought and another seeking to fix measures found necsesary during the war as permanent changes in the habits of the public. That is not our method. The old time controversy over ftshing rights may or may not be re- sumed when war is over, but our sole purpose is to secure this food at a time when its shortage is so acute. One need hardly add that there is no feeling of class antagonism about it. We all too much appre- ciate the heavy toll in life and treasure that has been paid to our common cause by the class of men who own fishing rights, who have given in proportion to their leisure and mean." without stint-or hesitation. I have indicated that the Boards of Conservators them- selves are the be.st- agencies to carry out this netting. They understand the. job. For our part we can promise them that the food will be welcomed and made the best use of by the people. There i,s nothing more to be said about it now, ,;o we will "call the hand" of the Wye Board and leave the matter to them. I need make no apology, sir, for harping again on this old theme, a* food has become such a factor in the pre- sent emergency. The retail maximum prices of such fish include (for whole fish), chub 1/3, pike 1/4, eels 2/ salmon and trout, 3/- per lb.-prices evidently based on short supply, as they cannot be put down to cost of feeding. The supply need not he short in this di,o.triet, and more meat could then be 6pared to indus- trial workers who most need it. We ought not- to grumble at any shortage of imported food when we think that many men have died to get us what we have, but equally we are not worthy their sacrifice if we fail to make good use of a large supply so access- ible and close at hand. Yours, &c., Hay, Jan. 28, 1918. T. J. STOKOE.
Radnor's Loss. I Death of. the Lord Lieutenant. THE LATE SIR POWLETT MILBANK. QI HIS PUBLIC SERVICES. It is with the deepest regret that we record the death of Sir Powlett Milbank, lord lieutenant of Rad- norshire. Our Presteign correspondent writes :— Great .sadness was felt in Radnorshire, especially Presteign and Norton, on Wednesday, on the receipt of the new, that Sir Powlett Milbank, the popular Lord Lieutenant of the county, had died in London that morning. Sir Powlett went to London on Monday last week for the purpose of having an operation perform- ed by an eminent surgeon, and was accompanied by Lady Millmnk. The operation was, we understand, successfully performed, and the new& reached Presteign that Sir Powlett was- going on all right, so that the information of his death came a.s atihock to the whole county, where Sir Powlett was so highly esteemed and beloved. Sir Powlett Milbank, Bart., was the son of Sir Frederick Milbank, Hart., and was the second baronet. His eIder brother, who was a lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards, died in 1892, and he. therefoqf succeeded to the. title on the death of his father six years later. Sir Powlett, in 1875, married Edith, daughter of the late Sir Richard Green-Price, formerly of Norton Manor, and some years, ago he inherited big estates in Yorkshire under the late Duke of Cleveland's will, which included that of liarningham, Barnard Castle. Yorkshire. He purchased the Norton Manor Estate, which included Norton Ianor, the home of his father- in-law, the late Sir Richard Green-Price, and Lady Mil. bank, and came to reside there. Sir Powlett Milbank was 65 years of age. He was elected member of Parliament for the county of Rad- nor in 1895, which he represented in the Conservative interest. He became Lord Lieutenant of the county in succession to Lord Ormathwaite, when the latter re- signed the office. Sir Powlett also took great interest in local affairs, being an alderman of the Radnorshire County Council and chairman of several committees, in- cluding the Small Holdings Committee. Like most inembers of the Milbank family, he was devoted to fox-hunting, and for one reason held the mastership of the Radnorshire and West Herefordshire Hounds. He retired in favour of his son, Mr F. Milbank, who hunted the country most- successfully for four sea- sons, and afterwards became master of the Ludlow, and later, of the Meynell. Sir Powlett's grandfather, Mr Mark Milbank, was the celebrated Master of the Be- dale Hounds in Yorkshire from 1832 to 1856. He was a practical farmer, and all the farms of his Radnorshire estates show splendid testimony to the interest he took in his. tenancy. As a Churchman, Sir Powlett was well known in the district. Sir Powlett is succeeded in the title by his only son. Major Sir Frederick Milbank, Bart.. who is at present on active service in France. He also leave,, three daughters—Mrs Forrester, wife of Capt. Forrester, Mrs Murrough Wilson, wife of Mr Murrongh Wilson, ,it!(l Mrs Henry, wife of Col. Vivian Henry. Much sympathy is felt with Lady Milbank and other members of the family in their bereavement. The Funeral. IMPRESSIVE CEREMONY. The luneral took piace at Norton Churcn on Saturday. The coffin was of panelled oak, and bore a plain oak cross, and was brought from London to Presteign on Thursday evening by the 5.30 train. being accompanied by Capt. Sir Frederick Milbank, Bart., the new baronet, and the Veil. P. J. Simpson, vicar of Norton. The train was met by Mr Whitmore Green-Price. The coffin was placed in one of the farm waggons and drawn by horses to Norton Church, where a short service was conducted by the Yen. P. J. Simpson, there being pre- sent the following members of the family:—Sir Frederick and Lady" Milbank, Mrs Forrester, Mrs Wil- son. Mr and Mrs Whitmore Green-Price, etc. The fol- lowing acted as bearers:—Messrs. Palliser, G. Morris. T. Probert, J. lioweti. O. Lloyd and G. Stran.ward. with Mr T. Walters, of Presteign. as undertaker. The coffin bore the inscription, "Powlett C. J. Milbank. ttcrn 1852, died 1918." The hour was fixed at 12 noon. and long before this time the pretty little church of St. Andrew's was filled with a sympathetic congregation, being even crowded to the doors of the porch. The service was fully choral, and was conducted jointly by the Rev. C. G. II. Boyds, a former vicar, and the Veil. P. J. Simpson, li. Ilo N d ?t former vie vicar of the parMi. The service opened with the hymn, "On the resurrection morning," sung with much fee- ing, and then followed the 90th Psalm. The hymn, "Lead kindly light," was next sung, and the proper les- sons were read by the Rev. C. G. Royds. The collects from the burial service were read by the Ven. F. J. Simpson, the vicar. The hymn, "For all the Saints," was the last one, and the service in the church con- cluded with the singing of the Nunc Dimittis. The cortege then proceeded to the churchyard, the grave being lined with moss and camellias, this. being the work of the head-gardener at Norton Manor and his assistants. The committal -service was read by the Ven P. J. Simpson. As the procession left the church. Miss Jones, of Presteign, played "0 rest in the Lord." The following were the chief mourners:—Edith.

KNIGHTON GUARDIANS' TRIBUTE. The chairman of the Knighton Board of Guardian" (Mr Hache) said it. was everywhere felt that they ought to pass a vote of condolence with the family of the late Sir Powlett Milbank. Personally, he was very sorry to hear of his death, and he feJt sure they all shared his feelings. He was generally beloved, and his kindness and sympathy made everyone who came in contact with him honour and respect him. He had moved very much in public of late, and there was no better officer on the County War Agricultural Commit- tee, or indeed, on 'any other body on which he acted. The way he treated people who came with appeals-^vas extraordinary. He pointed out the difficulties the com- mittee had to contend with, and gave the appellant the best advice possible, in such a sympathetic spirit, that no one could say he had been treated unkindly by Sir Powlett, whether his application was granted or not. "Some of us are different," said Mr Baclie, "but our friend always showed sympathy, especially toward the weak." With regard to the small-holding's, he al- ways did his best and tried to carry out the desires of the people, and I know that the Radnorshire people will miss him very much, indeed. He struck me as being a most straightforward, kind and sympathetic man. and, while I feel it asoloemn privilege to express our deep sympathy with the bereaved relatives, T am much grieved that the sad circumstances should have arisen which make, such a sorrowful duty necessary. Mr J. C. Jones said he fully endorsed the chairman's remarks. He had been one of the appellants referred to, and he felt the truth of what Mr Bache had said about Sir Powlett's kind treatment of all who came to him. Mr W. Watkins wished to associate himself with. the vote. He had served on a small body with Sir Powlett, and had always found him most fair and straightfor- ward, and no one could have treated the members of that small committee more courteously than their late friend had done. Mr E. Kinsey said he had known Sir Powlett for many years. No one ever asked a favour of him but what he would always do it if he possibly could. He could say a good dea!. but Mr Bache had said every- thing so well that. there was no need. He W86 very sorry that their friend wa.s no more among them. The vote was carried in silence, the members stand- tag.
Presteign Auction. FAIR SUPPLY OF CATTLE. There was a fair supply of cattle at Messrs. Morris, Marshall and Poole's monthly auction sale at Presteign on Thursday. Seventy-four fat cattle were pitched, graded and allotted under the Government scheme. Nearly 200 store cattle formed a good show. Trade for barrens was keen, but there wa.s come hesitation in buying steers. Fourten choice bullocks, bred and con- signed by Mr Edwards, Kinsham, realised £83 each, and was bought by Mr David Edwards. Mr Nicholls, Stockley, sent 10 growing steers, which realised £ 27 2s 6d, and other drafts made up to L24 17s M. There was a good show of barrens, the best making £ 32 15s. In calvers fetched £ 37 15s, and cows and £æ ]5", In-calvers fetched £ 37 15s, and cows and penned, and these were valued and allocated. A few store wethere, sold very dear. A large company of buyers attended, including many South Wales butchers.
WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLLR LIFE WAS LONCEKo When the organs begin to weaken, whether early or late in life. the hard-working kidneys usually tire out first, and should have first con- sideration. Failing eyesight, stiff, achy joints, rheumatic pa-ins. backache and distressing urination are often due only 'to weak kidneys. At the first sign of weakness give the kidneye prompt attention. Drink waterfreely to flush the kidneys, and use Down's Backache Kidney Pills to strengthen them. Go back- lio the Simple Lafe. to the sensible habits of your boyhood days. Ea4 less meat. avoid over-work, excesses and worry, and take more out-door exercise, rest and sleep. Everybody dreads kidney trouble, but this sen- sible treatment will keep the kidneys in condition, lengthen life, make it easier, and. perhaps, avert altogether the more, serious kidney diseases. Brecon people have recommended Doan's Back- ache Kidney Pills to their friends and neighbours for over 5 years. The good they do and the con- tinual use of home testimonials inspires an ever- increasing confidence in THIS SPECIAL KID- NEY MEDICINE.
