I EFFECT OF WAR. I Erstwhile Prosperous Man Seeks Relief at Carmarthen. A sad case of poverty arising out of the effects of the war came before the Car- marthen Board of Guardians on Saturday Mr. J. Jones (Ferryside) presiding, when a respectable looking man appeared before the guardians, and made an application for relief. He explained that he had been earning a living by selling leather on commission until the war broke out, but since then the firm he worked for could not accept any orders from him as they required all the leather they could pro- duce to carry out army contracts for boots. He had failed to get employment although he had tried in dozens of places. He had a wife and five children, one of whom was seriously ill. Replying to questions, the applicant etated he had applied for relief to the Mayor's War Relief Committee some time ago, but' without result. He had spent all his savings. The Clerk (Mr. John Saer) said the application to the War Relief Commit- tee was made soon after war broke out, and the committee considered that he was not short of work on account oi the w.t r. Mr. J. Patagonia Lewis said the man and his wife came of good families. The wife had informed him that she and her children were in want of food when t ie husband was away in search of work. He sent her all the money ho could spa -e. The Guardians granted 12s. per week. Mr. George Morgan, Carmarthen, wac appointed architect of the Cott.ige Home to be erected in Morfa Lane. The esti- mat.ed cost of the building is SI,000, t-i- clhsive of the cost of the site. The Clerk said the intention was to build two cottages—one for boys and ail- other for girls, with inter-communication, and have them erected in such a way trac they could be converted into prv-^te houses at some future time. if req:li'I'¡]
