"A MAN IS AS OLD AS f HIS ARTERIES." I Flush :the mineral impurities out through itlie kidneys before High Blood Pressure, Bright's Disease, Gall Stones, Dropsy or Diabetes force you to, saya medical man. If the constantly forming mineral impurities, such as.uric acid, urate of soda, etc., are permitted to remain in the blood they are sure to deposit on walls of the arteries, which then lose their elas- ticity and can no longer regulate the (blood pres- sure by expanding and contracting. Any shock, excitement, or quick exertion may easily affcot the heart so 'as to prove fakal. Before it is too late, drink occasionally a tumbler of water in which you have -dissolved a level tea spoonful of an inexpen- sive compound known by the registered name .a,lILia. saltrates (powder form). This alkaline medicinal water will soon neutralise and wash out the acidul- ous impurities and flush «che kidneys. Then notice how much better you feel. Satisfaction is guaran- teed or money back immediately ,and without a word. Try it before you decide to incur the ex- pense of visiting some famous hot mineral spring to drink medicinal water similar both in com- position and effects.

The Master reported that four paupers were admitted to the house and four discharged during the monfth. A recommendation was put forward by the House Committee with regard to payment of war bonuses to Poor-Law officials. The committee reported that a scale of payment had been forwarded by the Local Go- vernment Board, and ithey had based a scale accord- ingl)" with regard to bonuses for the master and mat- ron and relieving officer. Their recommendations, how- ever, QtTiia very much under the sum allowed by the Local Government Board. The Board agreed that the bcnu;e, as recommended by the committee, ,>< paid.

Radnorshire County Council. I URGENCY COMMITTEE. I At a meeting of the Urgency Ccmmrtte* of th. Ilad. BOMhire County Council, on Friday, there were present Messrs. J. Hamer (in the chair), Joseph Hurst and H. J. dee, with the clerk (Mr G. W. Moaeley). In reviewing pension claims, a case) arose in which a railway part-time worker had become disqualified, as a weekly wa-ge of 5/- had through war-boausea been transformed into a weekly wage of 17/8 per week, and 1 tie Pension Officer said this sum was paid te a womae for opening a gate about a dozen timea a week. It was reported that the Knighton Boys* School was again closed, this time owing to the illness of the headmaster. Consideration was given to the whole position. The committee were, however, unable to sug- gest- any course to obviate the necessity for closing the aehool. The Headmaster of the Llandrindod Weils Interme- diate* School wrote suggesting that steps should be im- mediately taken to frame a scale of salaries for the ae- sistant teachers at his school. He that several members of the staff were discontented, and b. was confident that this feeling would ooatinne until a scale of salaries, was adopted. He had reasons for snpposing I: that some of his staff would resign unless this course wa; taken. The committee considered the matter, but it was felt that the initiative in the matter should come from the assistant teachers themselves, and that a draft scale should be submitted to the Salaries Committee it the first instance.

"HOLE AND CORNER" SELECTION.
"HOLE AND CORNER" SELECTION. Sir,—I cannot understand why Builth Wells Urban Council did net act in the same way as its neighbour- ing progressive body seven miles awav-Llandrindod Wells Urban CGuncil, that is, in the matter of arrang- ing a welcome home for our brave and daserving lads. L!andrindod'.s Council decided to call a public meeting of ratepayers, thus giving all sections of the commun- ity a proper- chanoe of representation. Builth's Council threw the responsibility of selection of members for the Welcome Home Committee on the Churches, and thus fostered what outsiders are only too pleased to desig- nate a "hole and corner" policy. There are many sub- stantial ratepayers outside the Churches, who have an interest in the all important matter of recognising our heroes. Church and chapel selection is too haphazard, patronising and partial to hit upon just the right type of committee-men. Yours, &c., I. Builth Wells, MAN OF THE WORLD. Dec. 14, 1918.
LLANDRINDOD WELLS MILK PRICES.
LLANDRINDOD WELLS MILK PRICES. Sir,-In reference to the price of milk, fixed by the Llandrindod Wells Food Control Committee, the writer has heard that a certain local Food Committee wrote to the Food Controller, enquiring whether ithe milk ven- dors in that district would be allowed to charge 6id per gallon. The Food Controller replied that the lowest jj reasonable charge was 7d per gallon, that he had fixed 6-1d as the Teholesate price, and that, although the price may be fixed at Old if the vendors agreed, no prosecutions could be taken if afterwards the milk ven- (loria charged 7d, as that was the lowest figure which he (the Controller) thought rea-wnabla. It would appear, therefore, ithat the Llandrindod Wells Committee were at one time prepared to take up a position in which they would not be supported by the Food Controller, although they had obtained his for- mal approval to the price originally fixed by them. The feeling which was undoubtedly caused in the town and the trouble and expense of the milk vendora in haT- ing to submit twelve months' accounts apparently were quite unnecessary and uncalled for. '■ Yours, &e.. FAIRPLAY.
LLANWRTYD'S COUNCIL. Sit,-Our local council is again on the war-path. This time it i& the question of street obstructions. Notices have been served on a great number of persons, re- questing them to remove the obstructions from their premises. The obstructions complained of consist chiefly of seats placed outside the liouwo for the con- venience and comfort of summer visitors. The notices which have been served by the council have excited a great deal of indignation, and are much resented. It is understood that Councillor Saunders Morgan, the ratepayers' bulwark against any perform- ances calculated to impair the interests of the town, ottered strenuous opposition to the proposal. The electors are pretty well fed up with the present coun- cil, and are eagerly looking forward to the election in April next, when matter-, are likely to be put right. The suicidal policy pursued by the electors in the past of turning down men of substance and intelligence is producing baneful results, and the lesson now being learnt will bear fruit in due season.

THE sudden release from war-strain has had its effect on the public health. The re- action has found the physical resistance of the people at a low ebb with the result that sickness and disease have ravaged the land. This points to the need for Ker-nak, the new family medicine of unapproachable excellence from a thera- peutical standpoint, as well as distinguished by its greater suitability for sickness contracted under present-day con. ditions of living. Ker-nak in its concentrated pill form is most natural because it alleviates and checks disease-not by artificial and drastic purging, as do many old-fashioned pills, but in a soothing and natural way. Cheap and nauseous drugs are entirely superseded by this new and invaluable remedy which is now recognised as THE FAMILY'S FAVOURITE PRESCRIPTION. Ker-nak is unique as regards both its origin and its soothing, beneficial action. Each dose brings unmistak- able improvement in the bodily health. The most obstinate and long-standing symptoms of liver, stomach and blood troubles cannot resist the potent rectifying in- fluence stored up in the small compass of a Ker-nak pill. Aided by Ker-nak, the stomach, liver and bowels give up their habit of getting out of order and there is brought instead a buoyant health never before ex- perienced. Not only are the organs of digestion and nutrition thoroughly toned up and invigorated by the use of Ker-nak, but disease is neutralised and a new lease of strength and healthy vitality is secured to the sickly man, woman or child. -4 IT SOOTHES WHILE IT CURES Test this unique Remedy to-day, Sold by all Chemist1 and Drug Stores at 113 or 3/- a box.
