TRIIVISARAN. Mr. John Hodge. M.P., when introducing the Unemployed Workmen's Bill in the House of Commons on April 30th, said that during the ten years ending 1906 the trade unions had paid in benefits- to unemployed members 21.5 per cent, of their total income. In the ?16 trade unions, with a net member- In tll(\ 416 tl'J..clc 1¡nicrls, -xi 11 ;} !.let IJ1eln1Jel"- ship of 700,867, making returns, 57,250 (or 8.2 per cent.) were reported as unemployed at the end of April, 1909, or the same percentage as at the end of March, 1909. At the end of April, 1903, the percentage of unemployed was 7.1. —o-- Mr John 1.) Morgan, miners' agent, said at Swansea on Saturday that the trade of the anthracite coalfield was brisk, there being now no unemployment. --0- We are very pleased r.o see Mrs Jones, who has come from America to visit her mother and other relatives. We heartily wish her a hapm* time, and a safe and comfortable journey when sine re-crosses the Atlantic. The annual product ion of pig iron in the United State.; of America, rose from 13,789,242 tons ill WOO to 25,307,191 tons in 1906. -0" The topic of the day is the Budget-taxa- tion, direct and indirect. It has been well aai-d by a French statesman that indirect taxation is a scheme for plucking the goose so that you may get the greatest number of feathers without its squeaking. The House of Lords can reject the Budget if they choose to do so, but. they cannot alter it in tho I slight est. degree: they must either accept or | reject it. is to The latest ideal of the poultry farmer is to produce iron eggs for invalids. For de- licate pcrson requiring iron in minute quantities," said a London doctor to a "Daily Sketch" representative, "the eggs of hens specially fed to introduce that quality are in- valuable." Several fanners in Surrey, who who have recognised the commercial value of iron feeding, command high prices f01' have recognised ^the commercial value of I nursing homes. By the particular feeding adopted on the poultry farms-which consists mainly of scattering ironworks rubbish in I the ben-runs- and placing rusty nails in the I' drinking troughs—the eggs gain a much lar- ger proportion of iron than ordínaIilr To frail children th?e .sgg? not Loiled but served up with buttered bread crumbs, are excellent rt'cuperatives.—" The Poultry World -0- A Welsh member of Parliament, complains that in the town where. he resides, owing to the lack of co operation among neighbouring farmers, eggs are kept until their numbers ( are sufficient to justify a journey to market.

I The Small H »!<. i £ let on its introduction aroused great tvp it*« ns among the rlirit population which now bid fair to be 'disap- pointed. Whilst reading history of: Kidwelly written by the Rev. D. Daven Jones, B.A., I noticed with pleasuic that Lleehdwnny means Donne's Refuge; also that the name Dillwyn is supposed to have been derived from a Welsh bard called Jenan Deulwyn, resident at fendeulvvyn, within the parish of Kidwelly It used to be a common saying that Kidwelly bells were heard at Swansea, and this is ac- counted for by a loc-d tradition which states that the bells which had been originally in- tended for K'idv, ci iy were I alctn by sea to Swansea.
