NOW ABERGAVENNY, ALL TOGETHER! Abergavenny has a hue opportunity next week, from Monday until Saturday, of showing in no uncertain manner that its patriotism is not less strong than that of any other town in the country. A national appeal is being made to the public to help the prosecution of the war in the important realm of finance by investing all they possibly can in War Bonds and War Savings Certificates. The Government are choosing these methods of raising money in preference to issuing another War Loan, and the idea of a Business Men's Week is a capital one. All the work necessary to its organisation is being done voluntarily by the local com- mittees, and it is a national gain that the neces- sary money should be raised without the ex- pense involved in the issue of another War Loan. The work of organisation is practically com- pleted, and all that remains is for people of all classes to come forward next week with all their classes to come z available money and lend it to the Government. Though the title of the Business Men's Week has been used, it must not be imagined that the appeal is to business men only. The services of business men throughout the country have been enlisted in the work of organisation, but the appeal is to one and all to help to the utmost of their ability, whether that ability may be limited by shillings or may extend to thousands of pounds. It is hoped to raise throughout the country next week 400 millions, and if everyone will do their part according to their circumstances there is no doubt that this result will be easily attained. No matter what the country as a whole does, however, the concern of Aberga- venny and district is that it will do more than is expected of it officially. The task allocated to the district is to raise £ 22,500, or the equivalent of the cost of nine aeroplanes. The local Com- mittee hope to raise £ 50,000, and we are sanguine enough to hope that even this figure will be ex- ceeded. It is not impossible. The district has subscribed exceedingly well in the past to the various Government issues, but there are still plenty of financial resources to draw upon in the district, and we venture to think that there are few people who cannot help to swell Aberga- venny's total, even though it be only in a small way. There is opportunity for all, nowadays. Those who cannot afford to buy War Bonds at £ 5 or multiples of £ 5 can buy, or help to buy, War Savings Certificates. Even the humble sixpence can be contributed through a War Savings Association, either by the medium of the schools, or otherwise, and every sixpence contributed next week will go to the credit of Abergavenny's total. Even those who have not a banking account need not despair, there- fore, at not being afforded ample opportunity of helping. If you have a banking account to draw upon or savings which you can put your hands on, so much the better. The only valid excuse there can be at this time for not con- tributing is that of penury. Those who have money to spare should not be satisfied with lending the Government but a small portion, but they should remember that the totals will be worked out at so much per head of the population, and they have to make up for the men, women and children who are not in a position to help or who cannot afford to con- tribute their quota of a minimum Ll 5S. per head. What each one should ask himself or herself is What is the most I can possibly spare ? and then, having arrived at the maxi- mum, they should put it all in. There are no better paying or more secure investments for the small investor than these that are offered now by the Government. If these are not sound investments, then no investment in this country is safe, and if we lost the war through lack of financial resources no hoard in the miser's stocking could compensate for the results which would follow, even if it had not to be com- pulsorily surrendered. But we would not urge the point of view that it pays so much as the point of view that it is a duty to the country. The men at the front have to fight with the utmost of their physical powers and at the imminent risk of death or disablement, and it surely is not too much to ask the people in security at home to fight with the utmost of their financial resources. To Farmers and Others. I We would specially impress upon the residents of the rural district the importance of helping this movement as far as their means will allow. The rural districts have not all through the war been called upon to lend or give their money to the same extent as the urban districts. The financial resources of the country districts have scarcely been tapped as yet, and that there is plenty of money available in the present era of agricultural prosperity there can be no doubt. The rural district ought to subscribe handsomely to Abergavenny's total. Many farmers could easily subscribe a substantial sum, and there are scarcely any people who could not, if they made the effort, contribute in a lesser degree. If anyone is in doubt as to the steps to take, the information can readily be obtained through the parish War Savings Association, the local school- master or mistress, the banks at Abergavenny, or the information bureau in Cross-street, the office at the Cattle Market on Tuesd ly, or the Post Office We want to see Abergavenny and District make a supreme effort next week, and the ideal to be set up for achievement should be to subscribe more per head of the population than any other district in the country. Aber- gavenny cannot compete with other and more populous districts so far as the total subscription is concerned, but it can well vie with others in respect of the amount of average contribution. Some district will have the distinction of having contributed more per head of the population than any other district throughout the country, and why should not that district be the Aber- gavenny district ? Let each one see that no effort is wanting on his or her part, so that even though the district may not reach the foremost place it will be found that it is at any rate high up on the list when it comes to be published, so that all the country may see that Abergavenny has achieved a record to be proud of. Now, Abergavenny and District, All together ±
Abergavenny Nursing Association. I 1* ANNUAL MEETING AN EXCELLENT I YEAR'S WORK. The annual meeting of the Abergavenny Nursing Association was held at the Council Chamber on Wednesday evening, the Mayor (Alderman Z. Wheatley, J.P.) presiding over a fairly good attendance of representative members General Committee's Report. The report ot the General Committee on the work of the past year was as follows The General Committee have cause to con- gratulate themselves on the exceedingly satis- factory financial results of the year, but while this is so, and £ 16 16s. has been subscribed by the members of the Executive and over i-.io by the whole of the General Committee, with LU5 further by the generosity of new voluntary sub- scribers— it will be agreed that much remains to be done by the benefiting subscribers, or the class who expect themselves to participate in the services of the nurses. It is hoped this will be remedied, 1ll the near future, by a more thorough canvass and support of the house-to-house Ward collectors. As the nurses and their work get to be better known and appreciated, it is believed this will be so, for upon this will greatly depend the permanency of the success of the Aberga- venny branch of the County Association. Both nurses took up their work actively, though the maternity nurse was engaged earlier, only from the latter half of June, since which date it has been conducted to the entire satis- faction of the Executive Committee, and, it is believed, with the full approval of the medical practitioners. The Committee were greatly encouraged from the outset by two handsome donations of £ 20 each, and for these, and the other donations and the numerous honorary subscriptions, the Committee express their warmest appreciation and thanks. They tender their best thanks to the members of the Executive Committee, also to the collectors, and especially to the Hon. Secretary and Hon. Treasurer, and to all who have promoted other efforts to help the Associ- ation. The half-proceeds resulting from the benefit performance kindly offered and given by the Abeigavenny Coliseum Company, viz., £ 8 4s. yd., did not reach the hands of the Hon. Treasurer until after the close of the accounts, and the same remark applies to the subscription kindly given by the National Union of Railway- men. Both these will come into next year's accounts. A member of the Executive paid for a surgical boot for a poor case, and another member supplied an air-cushion for the use of patients through the sick nurse. The nurses and their work have, in due course, been in- spected on behalf of the Monmouthshire Nursing Association. The Executive Committee have during the year held 24 meetings." The accounts showed that the subscription from members of the old District Nurse Fund up to the 30th June, 1917, amounted to £ 17 10S., and the subscriptions of new members £ 76 16s. 6d., donations £ 66 10s. 2d., benefiting or par- ticipating subscribers' contributions /17 5s. 3d., fees for the district nurse ^8 6s. 6d., and fees for the maternity nurse ^13 8s. 6d. The expendi- ture, including salary and gratuity to Nurse Harris, the late nurse, and the salaries of the two new nurses, amounted to £ 123 17s. id., and there was a balance in the hands of the treasurer of £ 58 98. iod. On the proposition of the Mayor, seconded by Mr. F. J. Davies, the report and accounts were adopted. I More Support from Benefiting Subscr;bers Wanted. Mr. D. H. James (lion, treasurer) said that the result was exceedingly satisfactory, but there I was still one object that they, as an association, very much desired to see attained, and that was much stronger support from the benefiting classes themselves. The hon. subscribers had been exceedingly kind, and they had got to- gether large funds, but it did not follow that they would keep them permanently, and in order to make the association the success it ought to be it was necessary that the class who benefited should take a greater practical interest in the furtherance of its work. With regard to the house-to-house collections they had not yet provided the machinery they would like. One or two wards were done thoroughly, but the others were not so well organised. lit hoped that during the coming year the collections t would be more thoroughly organised. After a good deal of discussion it was decided to ask the constituent bodies to nominate their representatives for the coming year at once so that they might attend a meeting on the 15th March to co-opt other members and transact other business. It was agreed that in future this notice should be sent out prior to the annual meeting so as to obviate the calling of a second meeting. It was also decided to insert a notice in the Chronicle inviting other bodies not represented to send nominees. Mr. F. J. Davies said that it was most dis- appointing to come to the annual meeting and find that there was only 10 minutes' business. They should have had the election of officers at that meeting. Three months of this year would go before anything was done. The Mayor said that it was unfortunate, but the matter would right itself next year. Mr. Davies The elections should have been made tonight. The Mayor They can't until this body is properly constituted. Mr. Davies My society will not be repre- sented on it again. It is an absolute waste of my time. I The Mayor said he was sorry that Mr. Davies should take that attitude. His (the Mayor's) time was as precious as other people's.

AEROPLANE FOR ABERGAVENNY. The Local War Savings Committee are en- deavouring to get an aeroplane to visit Aberga- venny next week in connection with the Busi- ness Men's Week," but at the time of going to press nothing definite was known. If an aero- plane is secured it will probably fly over from Cirencester and circle the town a few times, but not land. The committee are trying to arrange for the visit to take place about middle day on Tuesday.
ABERGAVENNY STOCK MARKET. There was on Tuesday an improvement in the supply of cattle, compared with the previous week, and the quality and weight were good. The number allocated was 68, compared with 86 at the corresponding market last year. There were still fewer sheep, however, the supply only numbering 45, compared with 216 at the cor- responding market. There were a large number of calves, which sold dear, and there were 110 pigs on offer.
