L .? ￼ ￼ wounded skin with every ￼ II l' .:iJ confidence that only good will result. 1'! L? The fact that hundreds of nurses daily use 'W? ? and recommend Zam-Buk in the course of 11 ? their professional duties is convincing proof that If ? in Zam-Buk the public is provided with a medicinal balm, the purity and healing power of | which cannot be denied. J i -4 Zam-Buk is not only a wonderful skin healer. M J* It is strongly antiseptic and germicidal, and so u forms the ideal protection for the skin against jjd y disease germs. Keep a box always handy. NURSE L. GREENWOOD, of Douglas Road, Horfield, Bristol, writes:— .J I tried Zam-Buk on a patient's badly burnt hand, and in a sliort time the hand was fc perfectly healed. A soldier'* wife suffered fearful agony for years from piles. Again I used Zam-Buk, and the poor woman's terrible irritation and pain were quickly relieved f t and completely cured. A carpenter sustained such a fearful gash across his thumb that he fainted twice whilst I was bathing it. I smeared Zam-Buk over the thumb and bound '< it up. This treatmeut quite healed the big cut. For over nine years I have used IE t Zam-Buk almost daily with every success. I always carry a box in my bag." f NURSE GA THERCOLE, of Alexandra Park Road, London, N.. writes as i- j<W follows The World's Greatest Healer' is a capital name for Zam-Buk. Zam-Buk # J is splendid for chapped hands and tired feet, and for the constant mishaps to which a «■ nurse is liable, I have found this balm excellent. I am sure Zam-Buk would be a great SS) friend to many more people if they would only give it a trial." NURSE ROOK, writing from Salisbury Street, Swindon, Wilts., states:— J I I have tried Zam-Buk in a very troublesome case of chronic eczema, and am pleased t t to say the result was very satisfactory. Zam-Buk is indeed excellent, and I shall } i recommend it whenever I can." v FOR COLD IN THE HEAD, rub some Zam-Buk between the bands and Jg i breathe in the medicinal odours from the evaporating balm.

FARMERS AND OFFICIALDOM. I Protests at Brecon F.U. Meeting. 1 STRONG RESOLUTION. I Mr John Morris, Llanddetty, presided over a meeting I of the Brecon Branch of the Brecon and Radnor Farmers' Union, held at the Wellington Hotel, on the Tuesday. There was a fair attendance. The principal subject discussed was the increase of officialism as affecting farmers. Mr W. D. Smith, Millbrook, proposed the following resolution That this meeting of the Brecon Branch of the Brecon and Radnor Farmers' Union protests against the horde of officials and their hampering regulations, claiming that their existence has demon- strated, in a flagrant way, extravagance and inefficiency, irritating to the farmer, and of no benefit to the geiferal public. We demand their removal, pointing out that if such a system continues, it will inevitably result in a great exodus of farmers and th- ir families from this country to lands where prospects are brighter and conditions of life less unfair." Mr Smith, in moving the resolution, urged that officialism had been condemned by results: it had been ridiculously expensive and inefficent, and many of the officials were quite unnecessary. The War Agricultural Executive Comnittee was supposed to be composed of farmers, but how could anybody who knew anytbihg r.bout their performances contend for a moment that farming could be profitably carried on in such a wasteful and slovenly manner ? Practical I, farmers resented being told what to do by men whom they could teach to do the work. The position was that mere novices were tell old and practised farmers what they were to do on their own farms. Officialism was fast making England a decadent country, because somehow or other it managed to secure places for men who had been failures in other walks of life. [A Voice: And they are failures in what they are doing now.] Mr John Evans (Glanusk): We ought to say we will not have these things. They come to tell us about things we know better than they do, and they are doing harm. Mr Evans also spoke in criticism of the Brecon Town Council in regard to the want of better weighing accommodation for sheep in the Cattle Market, remarking that farmers had had to I wait four or five hours that day to get sheep weighed. Referring to the recent appeal of the War Agricul- tural Committee to farmers to maintain cultivation, Mr W.D.Smith said he thought the danger of the starvation plea was rubbish. He had yet to be convinced that we were anywhere near being starved for want of food. Farmers were willing to do their bit in reason, but other people were demanding easy conditions and good wages, and they were entitled to consideration as much as any other class. Mr W. Prosser (Cefnbrynich) You cannot send too strong a resolution, whatever yuu do. Mr G. P. Joues (Maesmawr) observed that a begin- ning had been made with the removal of restrictions the licenses for the sale of horses had been abolished. A Voice: Because they don't want them. Mr Smith Have any officials been scrapped ? Mr Prosser They have done away with the licences for horses, but you have to have a license for potatoes. I have applied to Cardiff for a license four times, and I am sick of it. After further discussion, Mr Powell (Gethinog) seconded the resolution, and it was carried unani- mously; and Mr J. R. Probert, the secretary, was asked to send copies to Mr Sidney Robinson, M.P., and the executive of the Brecon and Radnor Farmers' Union.

I Comrades of the Great War. I BRECON "POST" MEETING. The Brecon "Post" continues to make progress, and several new faces were seen at the monthly meeting. over which the chairman of the committee (Mr Fred James) presided, on Saturday evening. Amongst the new members elected was Capt. Molyneux F. Thomas, who went to Aden with the Brecknccks, and has re- cently returned home. In his report, the hon. secretary (Mr T. Maund) dealt in detail with the various matters which had been taken up by the Committee on behalf of the members of the "Po,t" and of widows and children in the town and neighbourhood, and, going further afield, stated that the establishment of,46 new "Posts" during Octob- er brought the grand total of "Posts" and branches up to 655 at the end of last month. It was gratifying to record the fact that the Cardiff Branch exceeds 500 member. with Major J. A. Tigar as hon. secretary. In asking the meeting to look out for new members, the Secretary impressed upon them that the comradets' organisation is democratic in character, non-political, and, despite the assertions of rival organisations, it is not backed by the Government ,but the movement was conceived by soldier# in the trenches, and is run en- tirely by sailors and .soldiers for sailors and soldiers, the general committee at headquarters consisting of all ranks, from private up to colonel, including amongst its, members a well-known and respected Breconian, namely, His Honour Judge Ivor Bowen, K.C., who com- manded a Wel-sh regiment during the war, and all the departjnents at headquarters are in charge of ex-offl- cers, ex-X.C.O.'s, or men or their dependents. In the larger towns the establishment of Comrades' Clubs is go- ing on apace, 135 having been opened in the course of twelve months. The work of the pennons' department, employment department, and information bureau was also reviewed.

The Day is past, ere yet to dawn it came; Your U-boats idle lie, shame, breeding shame; Your fearless Fleet,—I think you called it so— Has left the Kiel (at last) for Scapa Flow; Your hideous night-birds, shrieking dreadful things, Now mop and moult like fowl of lesser wings; The rancous guns, that did your heart rejoice, Have heard, and heeded well, their master's voice; And you, who thought the world within your clutch, Hide—somewhere at a place called—something dutch. Was it your cherished thought, all power to win, ] And Britain make a by-take to Berlin ? Or did you dream that you should rule, alone, —The earth your empire—from our Island Throne ? Part of your dream is true—your guns,to stay, are come, But you (may Heav'n be praised for this !) and they, [are dumb. J. T. j oj,
FARMERS' COLUMN. Frodtice was disposed of at the now well-known i trolled prices in Knighton market on Thursday. Prices at Pres-feign, on Wednesday, remained i changed. Talgarth market, on Friday, was well attended. Pri cipal prices were:—Eggs, 5d each; chickens, up to 10 per couple; and fowls, 8/6 to 10/ Prices at Erwood market, on Thursday, -were:—Eggi 5 for 2/ duck-eggs, 5d and 6d each; live-ducks, up t 10/- per couple; and live fowls, 9/6 to 10/ Rates at Hay produce market, on Thur.-da.v, were Butter, 2/2 per lb.; eggs, 5d each; chickens, 2/4 per lb.; ducks, 3^4; and rabbits, controlled price. Brecon produce rates, .on Friday, v.ere:—Butter, 2/4 per lb.; eggs, 6d each; chickens, 2/4 per lb.; ducks, 2/3; fowls, 2/3 to 2/5; geese, 1/7; and rabbits, con- trolled pirce. Although somewhat inclement weather, there was a good attcndance of farmers' wives at Rhayader market on Wednesday. Rates for fresh farm-produce were stationary. Fairs, &c., in Brecon and Radnor for December are: — 12tli, Hay; 16th, Llandovery; 17th, Tregaron and Brecon; 18th, Rhayader (poultry); 19th, Builth Well,; (Christmas live poultry market); 20th, Rhayader (poultry); and 23rd, Builth Wells (Christmas dead poul- try market). Over 100 fat cattle were in the market at Llandovery on the 26tli ult. Fifty-three were graded, and the re- mainder returned to the farms. Those taken for slaughter were all second and third grade beasts. Out of 700 sheep, brought in, 500 were taken for slaughter at the controlled rate. Exceptionally large numbers of store cattle were on offer at Builth "Dom" fair on Friday. Prices were maintained generally, but trade was very slack. Ruling figures were:—Three-year-old bullocks, 915 to £16; two- year-old ditto, £20 to £22; and cows with calves* (trade good), t37 to £O (one good pair realised £60). Very few lambs sold from HI/' to 22/ and store Kheep for feeding, 48/- apiece. No pigs were brought in. The Board of Agriculture report, in respect to Brecon and Radnor for- October, read:—"The_ corn harvest is towards the end of the month having been more favour- able for the work. A large proportion of the crops, es- pecially barley and oats, has been harvested in very poor condition, and was often .sprouted. With the corn harvest practically completed, the lifting of potatoes is now proceeding, and good progress was made with the work during the last few days of the month. Disease does not appear to he very serious. Very few man- golds and turnips and swedes have at yet been pulled. The quality of the roots is generally satisfactory. Au- tumn cultivation is backward, owing to the protracted harvest and wet weather, but farmers are now pushing on with the work. In mast districts some wheat has been sown. Seeds are usually healthy and look well, but some have suffered where the corn was badly laid or thefCtocks stood a long time in the fields. Live stock have, on the whole, done fairly well considering the wet weather. The supply of winter keep will be short in some districts, but in otheTiS the outlook is satisfactory. The deficiency in the supply of labour is rather keenly felt in some places, but, in others, with temporary assistance, there is about sufficient labour to meet the needs."
PROHIBITION. BREWERS AS TEMPERANCE I REFORMERS. There was more than a touch of humour in the remark of the man who said that the brewers were to-day the greatest of all temperance re- formers. It would appear that, unlike mercy, the quality of their offerings is strained to its idmi't. and many who regarded ale as the ideal supper beverage are discovering tha;t Vi-Cocoa, for in- stance, is far more palatable—far more satisfying, and really nourishing. Vi-Cocoa is the original Delect-aland Food Product, and in common with Freemana Cusvajd and Blanc-Mange, is comprised of the finest ingredients, and contains definite food values of the highest importance.

Powell, Cornhill, owner of the animal, was also summoned for the same offence. P.S. G.

A., Carmarthen, deposed that on the 25th October, in company with Sergt.

BRECON BOY, !
BRECON BOY, Death in France. I OFFICER'S AND COMRADES' TRIBUTES.' Respecting the death in France of Pte. T. Rowlands, son of Mrs Rowlands, Kensington, Brecon, the following letters have been received by her. The first, from her late son's company officer, reads as follows: Dear Mrs Rowlands,—I hope you will accept my deepest sympathy at the loss of your son. He was a very fine fellow, and I am very grieved to hear of his death in hospital while away from the battalion. It is little in the way of consolation that 1 can offer you, except that like so many thousands he has died that England may live. A certain number have had to give their lives for their country, and the pity of it is that the best should always be taken. I hope you won't grieve, knowing that he is beyond all suffering, j and that he himself would not like to see you suffer. The ways of Providence seem inscrutable at the present time; nearly everyone has lost someone who is dear. Again accept iny deepest sympathy.—Yours sincerely, C. H. TKBSHAM, Major, O.C. C Coy. The following letter, signed by 24 of his comrades, was also received:— Dear Mrs Rowlands,-It is with deep regret that we heard to-day of the death of your son, Pte. 'I., Rowlands. This letter is sent to you to express our heartfelt and deep sympathy with you and your two daughters in your sore affliction. Tommy was always a bright, cheery companion, a good comrade, I and a true and faithful friend. We all join in saying that your great loss is shared by us.

Davies, the bench ac- corded a hearty welcome home to the cleck (Mr M. F. Thomas) after his absence on military service in India, and Mr Lewi s Jone-s, on behalf of the legal profession, joined in the welcome, adding that they all recognised the sacrifice Mr Thomas had made to serve his coun- try.—Mr Thomas thanked the bench and Mr Jones for their remarks.
