Milk Prices at Llanelly. ♦
Milk Prices at Llanelly. ♦ BOROUGH MEMBER'S QUESTIONS. t In the House of Commons on W ednes- day Mr lewelyn W illiams asked the Par- liamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether a deputation of milk- vendors waited on the Llanelly Food Con- trol Committee, and stated that the price of milk had been arranged with the Divisional Food Commissioner at Cardiff, and the Divisional Food Commissioner fixed the price at 7d. per quart for Nov- ember, and 7,d. per quart to the end of March, without consultation with the Food Control Committee, and solely on the ex parte statements of milkvendors; whether the Food Control Committee had protested against the interference of the Commissioner, and complained that in their efforts to secure fair prices for the consumer they were being constantly thwarted; and whether the Food Con- troller will see to keep within bounds the arbitrariness of the Commissioner, who was depriving the local committee of all responsibility. Mr. Clynes said that the answer to the first part of the question was in the affirmative. Representations were made to the Food Commissioner to the effect that the supply of milk at the price pro- posed must involve dairymen in a loss, and the Fold Commissioner, in order to prevent the diversion of supplies from Llanelly to outside areas, suggested to the control committee the desirability of amending their proposed prices in the manner stated by the hon. member. It was not correct to say that the Food Commissioner fixed prices, nor did it ap- pear that the Food Commissioner in any way exceeded his duty in making a re- commendation to the committee.
LOCAL PRESENTATION. On Tuesday evening a presentation wa-s made to Pte. Frank Warner, 4th Royal Fusiliers, at the Brecon Arms. Private Warner was presented with a wristlet watch suitably inscribed. Mr. S. James in making the presentation expressed his appreciation of the work which the local men had done at the Front, and he hoped that they would soon be able to return to their civil dutie-t.- Mr. Gildas Davies, M*. Rex Vivian, Mr. Harries (the licensee), and several others made appropriate speeches. It is very interesting to learn that this was the 16tli present Cation made by the resi- dents of Capel Newydd district. Pte. Warner is returning to his military duties this week end. Notwithstanding the poor quality of the crops, the harvest thanksgiving services this year have not lacked one iota in religious fervour. The Rev. D. J. Lewis, B.A., Tumble, was quite outspoken in his sermons at Cwmmiles. Farmers in these days, said he, would not enter the corn- field with the sickle and scythe, like their grandfathers did, and nothing short of a reaper and binder would do. Still the same men were content in offering the everlasting sixpence a month towards the ministry, exactly as their grandfathers did.
FINED LS. Griffith Elias, G, Danybank, Carmar- then, was fined 1;5 for having a match in his possession at a Pembrey factory when summoned at the Police Court.

There is a reference in the "Camorian Guide" (11;1) to the parish church of Llanelly. "The high square tower," we are told, "is remarkable in being much wider at the base than upwards, forming a sort of eoue." At that time, the -= rshurchvard was surrounded by a low wall —so low that one could almost step across. The lads of the town played ball there, and a. match on Ascension Day be- tween players from Llanelly and Kidwelly was an established custom.

w- op.%& %w. w Railwaymen's Wages. LLANELLY DELEGATE SUBMITS THE SOUTH WALES VIEW. Delegate-s representing the Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers andfire- men have concluded a series of meetings in London in connection with the wages question. South Wales has been repre sented by Mr. W. J. R. Squance (Llan- elly) who, during the proceedings, before the Committee on Production, gave evi- dence on behalf of the men employed on the Great Western Railway in the South Wales area. The wages movement is a sequel to the eight hours agitation in August, and the arbitration proceedings were arranged at Old Palace Yard owing to the refusal of the Railway Executive Committee to recognise the demand, in- cluded in which is an application for 14s. per day for enginemen and motormen, 10s for firemen and conductors of motor- trains, and 7s. for cleaners. The Committee award is expected in a few days.

I The boys of the Intermediate Schools were again victors in their match on I Thursday at Ammanford where they were opposed to a strong side representing the I Amman Valley School. It was a very creditable win for our boys, who scored the only try of the match, in also being able to break the home team's three years ground record, which has been held so vigorously by the Ammanford boys. The Llanelly School are to oppose a strong side representing the Swansea Technical College to-day (Saturday) on I the Llanelly School field.

Llanelly's Great Day. I
Llanelly's Great Day. 1 11 MR. WORRELL IS COMING. II Famous London Eyesight Expert to Visit Us. I Free Advice. No More High Fgss. No More Faulty Glasses. Next week is to be a great week ior Llanelly, a time which thousand s of our townsfolk will remember with gratitude all their lives. Mr. Worrell, the London eyesight specialist, is coming to help them. All his great skill and lifelong ex- perience, all the remarkable talent and accumulated knowledge that twenty-five years' close study of the science of sight has taught him, is to he placed freely and gladly- at the service of every man, woman or child who seeks his aid. What an opportunity What a boon to the thousands of workers upon whose sight depends their daily existence, and who, hitherto obliged to rely upon rough and ready methods, which are seldom without danger, will now be able to avail themselves of the expert advice, pro- fessional skill, and experienced guidance that have been within the reach of the rich. only. Every sufferer from defective vision in Llanelly, every victim to headaches, neuralgia, staring, squinting, and the host of other distressing discomforts re- sulting from defective eyesight, is to be helped to see clearly by this famous man. The great burden of their lives is to be lifted, and instead of groping their way from day to day—losing half the pleasure of life and running the risk of serious eye trouble—they will be made to see once again with all the vigour and distinctness of their youth. I WHO IS MR. WORRELL. Mr. Worrell, whose chief scieMtific centre is in the City of London-the axis of the Empire—has for years tested the eyes of members of the aristocracy, world-famous men, city magnates, and countless thou- sands of other folk. Many medical gentle- men have consulted him, and has acknow- ledged his never-failing skill in diagnos- ing and counteracting visual defects. I THE GREAT CRUSADE. Mr. Worrell's services are to cost us nothing! During next week, commencing Tuesday next, the doors of the Parish I Hall will be thrown open to the public, and Mr. Worrell will freolgr aad generous- Iv advise and assist all those who seek his aid. His one object is to prove, once and for all, by reason of the enormous business he conducts, that the high fees and in- flated charges, which place the expert assistance of the specialist beyond the reach of the great mass of humanity, can be done away with. SIGHT SPECIALIST IN LLANELLY. I It is difficult to over-estimate the boon this remarkable man's visit will confer upon our town. It is a recognised fact that over 50 per cent. of the population of our great centres suffer from defective vision in one form or another—and the percentage is Llanelly is higher than in ma.ny large towns. This is perhaps inevitable. The close work and the straining of the eyes over the desk or work-table—frequently in a bad light and a bad atmosphere—result sooner or later in an urgent need for glasses. In the majority of cases expert advice is beyond reach. A visit to London to see a. specialist whose fees are reckoned in guineas is not to be thought of There is no other way but the casual choice of what seem to be the glasses required- glasses that really seem to help the vision but which in J1; ;le out of ten are en- tirely unsuitcd to the particular defect for I which they a"e chosen, and which, instead of helping the e) es, too often ruin the eye sight and impaiiv the health and brain nerves as well. The visit of the London specialist about which many of us have dreamed is no I longer necessary. The specialist is Coming r to us. All Llanelly is invited to meet him and discuss their individual cases with him. It is an opportunity few of us will miss. I MR. WORRELL AND HIS METHODS. Mr. Worrell, to whose generosity we owe this visit, is a striking personality. Although one of the cleverest and most successful sight-testing experts in Lon- don and a man whose genius and talents have made his name famous, he is just a genial, kindly gentleman, with an ever- ready ear for the troubles of the humblest of those who seek his advice. And Mr. Worrell does not do things by halves He is not content with giving the best of advice free of all charge, but helps still further. Twenty-five years' experience has taught him that the prices paid for lenses are, in most cases, exorbitant. His plan is this: Having examined the eyes and ascer- tained what lenses are required, if any, he sees that his instructions are properly carried out by competent opticians, and that the glasses are supplied at a reason able price. He brings with him a full staff of optical experts, who prepare his prescrip- tions under his direct supervision. He has at his command all the latest appliances and the most completely equipped optical service in the world. The result is that he can offer the pub- lic a technical excellence of workmanship and materials, combined with the best optical assistance that experience, science and money can command, at fixed prices, which are always astonishingly moderate. And his scale of charges is the same to everyone, no matter what his or her position or circumstances. His lenses arc based upou the dioptric system of measurement, have a natural cooling effect on the eyes, and afford an immeasurable relief of strain on those muscles and nerves, which are recognized as the most sensitive of the whole human organism. It is through close attention to these points that he is able to guaran- tee perfect comfort to those who are com- pelled to take glasses. THE GREAT POINT An outstanding feature of Mr. Worrell's crHsade is this-he does not want you to wear glasses He will tell you the plain- truth about your eyes. If ho finds that glasses are not necessary, he frankly says so. Mr. Worrell is actuated by a wish to help those who need his services. Having had the eyes tested scientifically and care- fully, having received the best counsel and advice, one can, if no glasses are re- quired, walk out of the room without the expenditure of a farthing. The glasses are supplied if required; they are scientifically correct, and are ground from a colourless and specially prepared crown crystal. The prices charged are always the lowest possible. For example, the average cost of his lenses is 3s.. and the quality and work- manship are guaranteed the best DISEASES OF THE EYES. One thing needs emphasising. Mr. Worrell does not prescribe for diseases of the eyes. If your case requires the atten- tion of an ophthalmic surgeon Mr Worrell will tell you so. He occupies himself sole- ly with those cases where a defective vision can be corrected by the use of glasses. If your sight is sound and merely requires a lotion a rest, or general care, he will tell you exactly the course to follow. COME EARLY Mr. Worrell can only spend five days with us in Llanelly. Make a point of visit- ing him early. The opportunity will hardly occur again. To miss it now may mean a. lifelong regret, and perhaps serious eye trouble. Even if your eyes seem all right, go oonlitalt him. Hmsdreds of people make a point of doing this because they know that there is no fear of being ad- vised to wear glasses when these arc un- necessary that, if all is well, they will come away satisfied that their eyesight is sound in every respect. And it costs them nothing Remember the dates—Tuesday, Novem- ber 20th, at the Parish Hall, Llanelly. Don't put down this paper until you have fixed in your mind a time to go and see Mr. Worrell. Let him tell you exactly how things -are with your eyes. It may cost you nothing; in any case the cost will be much less than is ordinarily charged. j

Compensation Case. i
Compensation Case. i Albert John Prescott, Loughor, at the County Court yesterday, sued the St. David's Tinplate Company. Mr. Meager (instructed by Messrs. Randoll and Saunders) appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. J. Lewis Phillips repre- sent-ed the respondents. Mr. Meager explained that the appli- cation was for increased compensation. When he met with his accident Prescott was a polisher in the cold rolls depart- ment, and his -contention was that if it were not for the accident he would now be a behinder. Evidence having been given, Mr. Lewis Phillips observed that Prescott was a small boy, and in giTing promotion the Company preferred hig boys. The evi- dence for the Company was that Prescott would not even if the accident had not happened have been promoted beyond that of behinder. His Honour: I think he would have been a behinder by this time having re- gard to the state of the labour market due to the war. Judgment was given in favour of the plaintiff for 6s. 6d. per week with costs from May 19th.
