Water Famine I DRASTIC ACTION BY THE CORPORATION. The increasing seriousness of the posi- tion in regard to the water supply has compelled tho Corporation to take dras- tic stops At an emergency meeting on Thursday evening, it was decided to pro- hibit the u&e of water at the tinplate and. steel works except for boiler pur- poses, and all the works have been noti- fied that the Corporation may cut off ifche supply entirely a.t 24 hours notice. Several of the works are taking steps to secure an alternative supply. It is oxpected that the Llanelly Ste:4 Works Sand the Old Castle Works will obtain sufficient water frcm Cille. There are old wells at some of the ofbei- works which may help to tide over the diffi- culty. Waste still going en. We are asked to draw serious atten- tion to the fact that water ia still being wasted in many households, the aggre- gate loss being thousands of gallons a day. The recent appeals for economy, however, have not been without their effect, the consumption, this month being jtfbout 400,030 gallons a day less than in July. The Corporation, at the same time are satisfied that much more can yet be done to bring down the consump- tion to something like normal figures, and we would again appeal to every householder to do his obvious duty in this matter. It will be a disaster if the works supply has to be cut off, and the Only way to avoid this is to reduce the waste to a minimum. The use of hose pipes in gardens is forbidden, and any leakage in pipes should be at once re- ported to the Town Hall.

Here and There.I
Here and There. I W After working for CO years under- ground, Thomas Jones has been- killed in an Aebrtillerv mine. A cake standing six feet high was the principal feature of a fete at Waltham- stow in celebration of peace. One of the main provisions of the new Early Closing Bill is a compulsory clos- ing at 7 o'clock en four nights a week an d at 8 o'clock on Saturdays, with an extra hour each night for tobacconists and confectioners. Last year the Government paid Reuters Agency £ 30,697 for the trans- mission of telegrams to Canada and other parts of the Empire. Thomas Williams, a motor cyclist, was killed by a collision with. a. cow at Bridgend on Monday. The Ebbw Vale Co. has set apart a sum of £ 20,000 to provide a literary and scientific institute as a war memorial. Up to date, the amount realized from the sale of surplus plant belonging to the State is over 155 millions sterling. The Peace Treaty is out of print and a second edition is being prepared. The latest War Office return shows that 127,600 officers and 2,9(50,294 of other ranks have been demobilized—a total of 3,087,973. The Parliamentary Labour Party have decided to admit Col. Wedgwood, M.P. into membership. At the last election he was returned for Newcastle-under- Lyme as an Independent Liberal. There are 60,000 soldiers in Ireland— double the force that was there before the war. A licensed victuallers association has protested against Cinema houses show- ing "Pussyfoot" films, and threaten to refuse to exhibit picture palace bills if it is continued. Mrs. Flack of Buckhurst, told the Epping magistrates that she was unable to send her daughter to school as she could not get boots to wear. Her daughter weighed over L3 stone, al- though only 13 years of age, and boot- makers refused to make boots for her. It has been decided to hold the first post-war National Health week in Mav, 1920. At a sale at Ipswich, the record price of R409 10s. was given for a massive ram lamb. At Blandford, 280 guineas was paid for a lamb for export to the United States. Among the classes at the Beaumaris Agricultural Show was one for demobil- ized horses. In a case at Eltham, an ex-soldier wrote:—"I am going back to the Army because I can only get £ 2 a week out of it." Liverpool doctors have passed resolu- tions in favour of organizing on a trade union basis. Taxed with 35 previous convictions for various offences, a Watlington dealer named Willis said: 'I don't keep count., He was fined £2 for ill-treating a horse. While picking flowers in a lane at Micham, Kate Chatt, a spinster, aged 45, had an epileptic fit, fell into a ditch face downwards, and was drowned in two inches of water.

BOLSHEVIST LITERATURE. I
BOLSHEVIST LITERATURE. I It has now been ascertained by the authorities that the seditious Bolshevist leaflet headed "British workers What are we going to do has been circu- lated widely. Copies have been received at Scotland Yard from most of the great industrial centres. Men have brought them to their employers, and it is hoped that the latest foreign revolutionary I move has fallen flat.

Brewery Men's Effort —It—
Brewery Men's Effort — It — BUCKLEY'S HORTICULTURAL SHOW. Judging by their decision to hold an- other Horticultural exhibition on Satur- day, August 30th, the employees ot Messrs. Buckley's Brewery seem. to bo well within the grip of the spirit of phil- anthropy. Only those in the inner circle know what such a decision means in £ s. d. to a few of their number. Al- though rules and regulations are framed concerning the exhbition of produce from their own allotments only, such a wide interpretation has been given, that on one occasion an exhibitor included within his own produce bananas and cocoa nuts. Suspicious persons also think that on ac- count of the excellence of the exhibits that they have, regardless of cost, been secured from places far and beyond the confines, not only of Carmarthenshire, but also of Wales. Be that as it may, the exhibition is certainly second to none htdd in the county, and the fact that "The Syndicate" is, once more challeng- ing Mr. T. R. Mills (Salutation Hotel), is in itself a sufficient guarantee that the show will be well worthy of patron- age. Last year the show was the means of securing CIIO for "comforts" for the "hays" of Messrs. Buckley's Brewery who were "doing their bit." This tim- the proceeds are to be devoted to the General Hospital—an institution which has not had that support it deserves within the past five years on account of the multifarious other charitable claims that sprang up in connection with the war. The exhibition should therefore anpeal m0r" forcibly than ever to the general r>uMxc, and it is pleasing to note that the "VTqycr (Coun. Dan Williams, J.P.) has been elected Patron.

Juvenile Court I BIG BATCH OF OFFENDERS. I Sorry for what they had done. I At the Juvenile Police Court on Thursday, Agnes Evans (9). and Irene Evans (8), both of 36, Wern road, and Gertie Clement 7), Wern road, were proceeded against on two charges of larceny, viz., stealing two overalls, two blouses, 2 .shirts, and a boy's coat value 12s., the property of Moseys Rubenstein, and also stealing a boy's woollen knic- kers the property of Leopold Cohen and Son. P.C. Evans stated that in Market street he saw Irene Evans carrying a bundle of clothing under her arms. He asked her to stop, but she ran away and dropped the clothing. He followed and overtook her in Murray street. When asked where she got the clothing from she said "Agnes gave them to me in the Market." He later charged all the defendants in the presence of their parents. Agnes and Irene Evans said: "They were very sorry for what they had done," and Gertie Clement said: "I did not steal anything; I was only with the other two." Gertie Clement was discharged and the parents of the other children were I ordered to pay 10s. towards the costs. No Lights. Garfield Williams, 2, Waterloo street, was summoned for riding a bicycle in Bres road without lights at 10*50 p.m. on July 17th. The case was dismissed on payment of costs. Posted a Sentry. Gwilym Lewis (15), 72 Andrew street, and David Geo. Richards (15), 13 Swan- sea road, were proceeded against for playing a game of chance on the 26th July. P.C. Higgins said the defendants had another boy with them acting as sentry while they were playing cards. When the defendants saw him they ran away leaving behind a pack of cards and two- pence. Defendants were fined 10s. each. I Damaging growing grass. Clement Potter, 40, Coronation road, was summoned for damaging growing hay to the extent of Is. on the 24th July. P.C. James said he saw the defendant in a, field connected with Penyfai farm. The boy was pulling up roots of dande- lions which he said was for his rabbits. Growing grass had been trodden down. Defendant was fined 6s. inclusive. Wilful Damage. Charles Davies (10), 5, Albert street, and Willie Gammon (8), 10, Albert street, were summoned for doing wilful damage to three windows of a railway van to the extent of £ 3, the property of the Great Mountain Colliery. P.C. James said that on the 23rd July he visited Lakefield School, and in the presence of the schoolmaster charged the defendants with the offence. Charlie Davies said: "I was in the van with Willie Gammon and another boy. There-, was a piece of iron on the floor and I was turning it around my head when it smashed the window." Willie Gammon said- "Charlie Davies broke one window and I broke two with a piece of iron. I did not know I was doing any harm." A representative of the Great Moun- tain Colliery said that the Company found it necessary to institute proceed- ings against the defendants because of the number of windows that had pre- viously been broken. The Bench ordered Davies to pay j61 towards the costs and Gammon 10s.
