CYCLING. I The Holidays Awheel. I .Many a cyclist will .,pc.nd the Ea>ter holidays awheel and on the joy of it will depend much of his or her appreciation of the finest form of cycling—the holiday tour. The first necessity to enjoyment is a gocd map of the district Ni-hich L-; to be vi>ited. Although the country is nowadays well signposted one ought to know the direction in which one is travelling. Have your map on a scale .a..s. large ai you can conveniently carry. Small-scale maps cften omit bye-roads which look of no importance on paper, but are very misleading when met with on the road. Quite a good plan, especially at this season when the weather is uncertain, is to make for one place, ttaj there for a day or two, and explore the country round, returning to the same "re»t-hou>e" each evening. A good guide-book to the district is very helpful to »uch a holiday. One can usually be obtained at any local bookseller's. I have cnlv one warning to in over such. Local guidebooks usually pa-int the picture in the highest colouri. I have veen manv a waterfall described in such book, become but a wimpling burn when one has reached it. But u.suallv sticii places have woodland beauties* that fully make up for the enthusiasm of the local author. Measuring Distances. °. I On a road where milestones are rare you can (iuieo well gauge your distances by counting the telegraph poles. These are usually set at 23 to the mile. The knowledge is useful when you are told that you are within a mile or two d a particular place-exceVt that it is necessary to warn travellers that local knowledge of mileage i,, alway.,i rather vague. More than once have I been told that a place was two miles away, and after travelling the two miles been informed hy another pa>ser-by tha.t it, wa-s istill another three mites; Another little point to remember in connection with the telegraph-posts is that the crcs^-pieces carrying the insulation are always placed on the London .side of the post. Thus, if you emerge from a c-ido road into a main road, with telegraph poles, you can always tell your direction by this means, presuming you have an Idea of the direction in which London lie. Another little tip for giving direction is that of the watch and the 6uri. If you hold the face of your watch upwards and horizontal. with the hour hand pointing toward- I tlie itin, halfway between that and the figure 12 will be due. .south. It i-i not it meteroloicalli, accurate definition but, near enough for all practical purpose- Start Early. I One of the greatest secrets ot enjoying a tiouuay awheel is to start easily. In the morning, when you are fresh, the tendency will be to rus.h up every hill and make the most of the glory of the day. Check it. A hill walked in the morning may mean two ridden in the afternoon. I cannot explain it, except by the fact that the rider i.s thus tired early, and therefore the later labour becomes a t-cil. And cycling should never be that, but always a pleasure. In the same way. if you have not heen riding through the winter, don't set yourself too great a daily task. Fifty miles is a Ion,, run for a cyclist who is starting after months of cycling idleness. Thirty will be enough for many. Carry a cake of plain chocolate with you always. If you fee! fagged, or develop the headache which is often a ,ign cf it. that chocolate will put you right till you can get a sufficient meal. I have known many riders, carry a little Brand's ev-ence for the same rea- son. Especially in these day- of short rations a little forethought of this kind may prove most useful and
.""..,,.MOTOR CYCLING. I
MOTOR CYCLING. I Belt-Slip or Clutch. I When a motcr-cycle contraets the. hahit ct racing or when difficulty is experienced in mounting hills, one may be pretty sure that either the belt is slipping or that the clutch is at fault. It is possible, of course, that there may be another cause, hut in 99 out of 100 cases, the rider need look no further than the belt or the clutch. It is quite a simple matter to determine which of the two is the true cause. If the machine is fitted with an engine-shaft clutch the following is the way to tell whether it U the twit, cr the clutch that is clipping. Run the engine slowly with the machine on the stand, jam on the back brake hard enough to lock the wheel and let the clutch in gently. If the clutch is binding properly the engine will stop. With the other type of clutch the test is to put the machine on the stand and attempt to pull the back wheel round against compression. If the best slides round in the engine pulley intead of either strongly resisting your efforts or turning the engine you may be sure that the belt is either too loose or that it i? a bad fit. .I When you Change Gear. I Many otherwise good rider-. nearly always bungle the I changing of the gears, by doing it with a clank and rattle, together with a most unpleasant jerk of the I machine. The commonest faults with either a two or a three speed rider is that he changes down too earU or too late, causing the machine to slow down with a jerk or labour after the change, as the case may be; and he abuses the privilege of changing up or down with raising the exhaust. This is allowed by most makers 1 know, but it is none the les., foolish. To bang in the gears, instead of sliding them in and waiting for the "bite" lwfon- completing the change is a mistake. It throws a very heavy strain on engine and gear after free-wheeling down a hill. Every motor-cyclist who is not handy with his gears would be well advised to spend an afternoon ascending and descending the near- est hill. which gives plenty of oppotrunity for change speed business, concentrating his attention not oil making "pectacular speedy ascents, hut 011 the gear changing. Pleasure Taxis. I The appeal which the Petroleum Executive has issued regarding the use of taxis should interest the motor- cyclist., for no class has had to put up with more an- noyance or more restrictions than the owner of a motor- cycle. The appeal is as follows"The demands of the fighting services for petrol are daily becoming greater. The public are invited not to hire motor- cars or to u?e taxicaks when they can walk cr u.-e public means; of conveyance. While taxicabs must be available for bu.-ine-s and other necessary purposes, no able-bodied man or woman should use one unle., for absolute necessity. The use of taxieabs for selfish amusement is the cause of much ill-feeling as well as of waste." Printed instructions have been issued by the Navy. Army, and Air Force calling upon all officers, X.C.O.'fl and men to "think seriously before using a motor vehicle or ordering it to be ued."
MOTORING. I Motoring after the War. I When the war is over I am pretty sure that we .shall find that the idea that motoring is chiefly the preroga- tive of the rich will very .speedily disappear. We shall find that the motor car will be much giore in evi- dence than it has ever been, and the demand will be amongst all classes of the community. We have only to look at what has been accomplished in America to realUe this. The population of the United States is al>out twice as great as that of our country: yet the number of motor cars in every day use is rather more than 5 times greater, this, in spite of the fact, that the good road mileage in Great Britain is considerably greater than is the case in America. There are some who would have u> to believe that the authorities" in this country are entirely to blame for this state of affairs. Unfair taxation, both as regards the car and petrol, and repressive measures are held responsible. These have undoubtedly had to (io with it, but a point of greater importance is the fact that our manufacturers have failed in a large measure to realise the needs* of the people, and have -concentritte(i upon the production of a few expensive car;, rather than Upon the production of a large number of low-priced ears. If manufacturers will bear this fact in mind and act accordingly the demand for reliable, low-priced cars will be enormous as .-oon as ever peace returns. The A.A. and the Motoring Council. I The secretary of the Automobile Association and rotor Union has written a long letter to the press giving the reasons for the Society's attitude towards the newly-formed United Council of Motor-Users, Producers, and Distributors. On the whole, the letter, I think, satisfactorily explains the reason for the re- fusal of the A.A. to join the new association. The chief reason is that "this association (the A.A.) was formed for the benefit of motorists and motoring gen- erally, and to this end the committee feel that they cannot, pledge themselves to support the policy of any trade body or bodies whose interests may conceivably clash with those of the private motorist in the pro- tection of those interests the committee prefer to re- main entirely free." The A.A. is at. pains to point out that it welcomes the co-operaticn of kindred bodies I wherever and whenever the interest:, of the motorist are concerned, but it is because the A.A. committee does not think that the proposed new Council can co-operate in the hesfc interests of motorists that they have de- clined to support the scheme. In the meantime the names of the newcollncil and its outline of policy are awaited with great interest. THE HUB.
MOTOR CAR AND TRAP.I
MOTOR CAR AND TRAP. A BRECON ROAD INCIDENT. SEQUEL AT COUNTY COURT. At Brecon County Court on Saturday, before His Honour Judge Bryn Roberts, an action was brought by Win. Jones, Llwynaumawr, Cwmdu, against Wm. Morris, Station (iarrage, Blackwood. Paintiff claimed t2S 2s 6d for damage done to his horse and trap by defendant's car colliding with it. There was a counter claim for C30 for damages to the motor-car. Mr Lewis W. H .Jones appeared for plaintiff, and Mr Jones Williams for defendant. Plaintiff said on the 21st September he was driving home from Brecon about 3.40, when just opposite the railway goods station he heard the sound of a motor horn behind him and he drew to the left side of the road, leaving two parts of the road quite clear for the car to pass. The car came "like a shot out of a gun" again.-t- him, the front wheel catching the spokes of the off wheel of the trap. The car went right before the mare's head cver the embankment against the fencing. The mare reared up and landed on top of the car. He pritng to her head and got her away. Before the accident he valued the mare at C70, hut she was now quite spoiled for road work. He claimed damages for repairs to trap and depreciation of the horse. Cross-examined He valued the mare now at £4; In November Morris came to the farm and asked him to give the mare a trial with the car. He told them it was no trial and he was leading her. Mr Jones Williams: Did not the pony swerve across the road when the car approached you?—Xo isuch tiling. Mr Jones Williams: I don't suppose your nonour wants to know what happened afterwards? His Honour: Xo, as a rule they sdang each other and accuse each other of the fault. (Laughter). Mrs Jones, wife of the plaintiff, gave corroborative evidence. P.c. Martin, who went to the scene of the accident, said from the track-i on the road it appeared to him that the car had skidded slightly. Harold Millett, a boy, said he saw the car going at a very fast rate and hit into the trap. As it passed him he saw a lady who was sitting in front, "teasing" the driver. (Laughter). Mr Jcnes Williams: What do you mean by that? Witness: She was waving her hand in his face and the driver was trying to stop her. Mr Cattell gave evidence to the effect that before the accident he estimated the value of the mare at 965, but as the result of nervousness caused by the accident he considered she had depreciated in value by half that amount. Cross-examined The value of the horse would be de- creased as a roadster, but not as a "collier." In reply to His Honour, Mr Cattell said he did not think the horse would improve in nerves. Defendant said the occupants of the car were two ladies and a gentleman. He had been proprietor of the garage for six years and had never had an accident before. When he saw the trap in front of him he blew the hern and as he was in the act of passing in, going at from 12 to 15 miles an hour, the horse swerved to the Tight and the hub cap of the car's wheel caught plaintiff's wheel and bent the steering gear, with the result that the horse and trap were pushed cn to the path. It was untrue for the boy to say he was larkin with the lady sitting in front. and immediately after the accident plaintiff said he could not hold the mare. At a trial at plaintiff's farm in November the pony was all right. The car after the accident had to be taken to Messrs. Rich's on a trolley. Mr Lewis Jones: If the niar, swerved to the right was it not sufficient to knock her over?—I did not touch the horse at all. I touched the wheel before I came to the mare. She did not turn directly in front of me. James Barter, an occupant of the car, gave corro- borative evidence. The horse, lie ai(l, swerved just as the ear was passing. Mr John Maclaren, veterinary surgeon, Abergavenny, .said the mare was never worth mere than £ 40. His Honour said he could not accept the view that the accident was caused by the horse crossing in front of the car. The horse was not very much injured, but would not 1)(' fit for sometime to drive along the road. It. was a cla-s of mare, he said, that would not be very much damaged by nerves. He gave judgment for plaintiff for £ 13, and costs on the counter claim.

Women and Agriculture.
Women and Agriculture. GLASBURY-OX-WYE MEETING. Under the auspice, of the Breconshire Women s War Agricultural Committee, a meeting was held at St. Peter's Hall, (Jla-bury-on-Wye, on the 5th in.st., at which the methods, origin, and objects of the Women's Institute were the themes discussed. Mr E. Butler, J.P., the chairman, remarked that women had proved themselves most useful of late in helping with the war. Among some of the useful obje-ct., which they pursued was the starting of the movement known as the Women's Institute, and there were also many other branches of work which women had taken up. Mrs Aubrey Thomas, the president of the Builth Women's Institute, theft addressed the meeting, and, in the course of a very interesting address, stated that at Builth Wells there was a women's institute, i-tarted about a qear ago. which already numbered tome 35 or 40 members. The charge fer membership was 2/- each, which proved amp!e for working out the project, be- cause they met t-ogether once a month to discuss vari- ous objects. Lectures had been given, and such prac- tical themes cocking, sewing, making up articles, bottling fruit and gardening had been dealt with. Mrs Bligh, of Cilmery, next spoke, and gave a splendid address on the need there was to perform the duty of assisting one another, and that associations, like the one under -consideration, helped them to assist each other in a practical and methodical way. Talking of ,the necessity to feed pigs.it wa., sometime- made an ob- jection by people that they could not feed pigs under present conditions. "Well," remarked the speaker, "better a lean pig than no pig at all." Miss. Hilda Yaughan then, in an illuminating manner, .,IIO"ul how the idea cf the Women's Institute origin- ated. It was in Canada. In that undeveloped country farm-hou.-es were lonely and far apart. Itany ladies, inexperienced in practiaeal household duties, married' on those ranches. House-keeping under such conditions was not an easy matter. The" result was that the Can- adians, who were sociable and friendly, devised these institutes, where all manner cf practical work was fully discussed and information freely given to all who needed it. A vote of thanks, proposed by Mrs Sandys Thomas an 1 seconded by "Irs Powell, brought to a close a very interesting meeting.

! A JIBBER?
A JIBBER? SOLDIER CHARGED WITH CRUELTY TO HORSE. BRECOX HEXClI'S DECISIOX. Pte. Wm. J. Wells, belonging to an agricultural com- pany at the Depot. Brecon, and who has been working as a substitute haulier with the Breconshire Coal and Lime Co., appeared to answer a summons, at the Brecon County Police Court on Friday^ for ill-treating a horse. Mrs Smith, Millbrook, said on the 12th March, about 3 p.m., she saw a soldier standing with a horse and cart loaded with coal on the bridge by Millbrook. De. fendant had blindfolded the hcrse and was, knocking it across the head and neck with a stick. He knocked the horse several times. Witness told him not to do it, but he told her to mind her own business. She said she thought it was her business, and that she would report him. Later she saw him trying to blind-fold the hor.-e again, but the horse seemed daunted. He had a bag or eanva.s over the horse's eyes, and later she saw him putting his top-coat over its head. It was a light horse, and he was trying to get it to take the cart up the hill. If he had asked her for the loan of a horse to help it up the hill she would have lent him one. Defendant said the horse was a jibber. The Clerk (to Mrs Smith): In your opinion, if the horse were a jibber, was the punishment defendant was giving it excessive?—Yes, it was. Sarah Ann Jones, a servant at Millbrook, gave cor- roborative evidence. She added that she saw defendant later at the foot of the hill knocking the horse about the legs with a stick. The horse was trembling and seemed afraid of the man. The Clerk: Did the horse appear to you to be able to manage the load ?-He could pull it along the flat, but she did not know whether it could pull it up the hill. She could not tell the condition of the horse. P.s. Evan- said on .the evening in question, in ecn- sequence of complaints received, he visited the stables in the Watton, and there saw the hor:.e-a chestnut cart mare—which defendant had been driving. It was brought out of the stable antd witness examined it. It was bathed in perspiration from head to foot and trembling, appearing to be in fear when epoken to. and from its general appearance had gone through very rough usage. He failed to find any marks on it. The next day he saw defendant and told him of the com- plaint he had received. Defendant denied he had beaten the horse, but said he had had a great deal of trouble with it, and produced the whip which he said he had with him. Defendant had since been dismissed. The Clerk: From whose employ? Witness: He was employed by the Breconshire Coal and Lime Co. Witness added that he saw the manager the same evening and he ^sent the man back to the Barracks. Supt. Jones: What was the condition of the licrse? P.-s. Evans: It was a good horse, and appeared to be quite capable of taking a load. I made inquiries of other hauliers, and they told me they could manage it all right and never had trouble with it. Defendant: When you inspected the horse cn Tues- day. I believe it had been raining all day?—Yes, it had been. I saw other horses the "ame evening, and they did not appear to be in the same condition. Defendant: All the other hauliers and Mr Jones, the manager, admit that they always had had trouble with the horse jihhing ?-They did not say .so. Defendant said he would like to have a representative of the firm present to give evidence on this point. The horse was. a. noted jibber, and whoever had been in charge of it had always had trouble with it. The Clerk: You can have an adjournment, but there is still the question if the horse were a jibber was the treatment- excessive ? Defendant: NO, it was not. The bench decided to send to the stables for evidence on this point. John Price, a haulier, in the employ of the company for two years, said the name of the horse was "Madame." He had had charge of it in hauling a load of coal. It worked all right the time he had it, about 18 months ago, but he was told "she had been jibbing with some" since then. It was an aged mare. The Clerk: You are ,ure she is a jibber?—Xot when I was with her. The Clerk: Perhaps she is jibbing now at the price of eca.l! (Laughter.) Supt. Jones: When did you first hear of her iih. bing?~vThis long time. By your own regular workman ?^-Yes, before I had her. The Clerk: Who is driving her now? Witness: Another man from the Barracks. The Clerk: Perhaps she resents khaki, or is a con- scientious objector. (Laughter.) The bench (Mr A. A. Mitchell and Mr Evan Morgan) said they did not consider the evidence was strong enough in the case to convict-, and they desired to warn defendant to be more careful in driving horses.
Crickhowell Police Court.
Crickhowell Police Court. RENEWAL OF TWO LICENCES OBJECTED TO. At Crickhowell police court cn Wednesdav before Mr VV. James and Mr D. P. Jones; John Jones, hutcha. Cwmdu, was fined-6/- for drhing a horse and trap without lights. For being drunk at Crickhowell David John Evans Llant'lly Hill, collicr, was. fined 7/6. Superintendent Wm. Williams, on behalf of the police objected to a renewal of the licence.* of the Plough Inn, Llangattaek, and the Queen's Head, Crickhowell. on the ground of the unsatisfactory conduR of the present tenant-, each of whom was twice convicted itu 1917, and the need of structural alterations. Mr D. Gibson Harris, Brynmawr, appeared for the lessee. The Bench intimated that they would renew the licences for four months to enable the licensee to find new tenants, and if this was. not done the houses must bo closed for the period of the war.

I Llandovery's Council. GAS COMPAXY'S COXTRACT. At Llandovery Town Council, on the I)tli inst., a letter was read from the directors of Llandovery Gas Com- pany, informing the council that they intended stand- ing by their contract, relative to the public lighting of the town, and applied for payment of ff,5, being the amount due for the half-year ended December 31lit last, and, unless this sum was paid by the 10th inst., in- terest at 51 per cent, per annum would he charged. Councillor Esmond regretted the Gas Company had not accepted the offer of the council to arbitrate upon the sum in dispute. Their term., meant the paying of fG5 for nothing, as the public had had no lighting dur- ing such period. He maintained the company had fail- ed to supply gas at various times, and had allowed abatement in consequence. On the motion of Councillor J. Xicholas, the council resolved to ask the directors to meet the council to j confer once again on the matter, and. if they declined to do go, that a public meeting of ratepayers be con- vened.
Out portrait is of Miss Nellie Thornton, of 79, Brighton Street, Salford, Manchester, whose mother writes :— "1 am sending a photo of my little girl, Nellie, who is now completely cured of Eczema by your 'Clarke's Blood Mixture." Her sufferings were unbearable, and she often wished herself dead. She was without healthy skin from head to foot, and could not ihardly bear to stand, sit or lie down. I took her to a skin hospital, and I kept her un- der their treatment for five months. They gave me ointments for her, but they did her no good. I then bought some 'Clarke's Blood Mixture,' for her life is due to the wonderful cure it has made of her." Clarke's Blood Mixture, by reason of its re- markable blood purifying properties, can be re- lied upon to give speedy relief and lasting benefit in all cases of Eczema, Scrofula, Scurvy, Bad Legs, Abscesses, Boils, Pimples, Sores and Erup- tions, Piles, Glandular Swellings, Rheumatism, Gout, etc. Over 50 years' success.

The Air Raids. I WHAT A BRECONIAN SAW. I A Brcconian writes People often ask the question, "What are we fighting for:" My answer, after the experience of the last few days, is that it is absolutely j necessary to kill for all time the kind of kultur' that can be responsible, for the slaughter of inoffensive women and children. 1 On Monday morning, I paid a visit to Road, and r London. Brecon people will be able to realize somewhat the position by a homely comparison. Imagine a row of beautiful houses similar to the Bul- wark about twelve in number, with not a single pane of glass intact at the end of the row three houses are completely demolished; and at the present moment there are women buried beneath tons of debrit. At the corner stands the once beautiful Hotel, all its ornamental windows smashed and work demolished. It gives one an idea of the devastating properties, of the ariel torpedo. Only one of these terrible cngine, of war was dropped in this district, but its effect is to be seen for quite half a mile around. There was also a comic aide to the tragedy a bomb dropped in a gar- den at scattered a. stone of potatoes on to the roofs of houses for a considerable distance aroitu(i, startling the inhabitants.
