Times, customs and manners change with every generation, but nevertheless there am a number of our daily foods which enjoy increasing popularity from year to year. Fvst and foremost among these is Cadbury's Cocoa, which has stood the test of time, as well as every other test that can be applied. The medical profession counsel the public t8 choose Cadbury's in preference to the many cocoa admixtures, which are sold under the une of Cocoa. No article of domestic consumption is more deservedly popular than Cadbury's Cocoa.

Mathry Petty Sessions. ANNUAL LICENSING MEETING. These sessions were held at Mathry on Friday last, the 2nd inst., when there were present:—Mr Chas. Mathias (in the chair), Messrs T. E. Thomas, T. B. Rees, S. T. Williams, W. G. James. F. Richardson, J. C. Yorke, Dr. Propert, G. D. Harries, and the clerk, Mr R. T. P. Williams. The Clerk asked if there were any objections to any of the licenses in the district. As there were none, all licenses were signed. TRANSFERS OF LICENSES. The license of the Croesgoch Inn was trans- ferred from Daniel Harries to John Evans. That of the Jubilee Hotel, Letterston, was transferred from W. J. P. Hart to John James. The license of the Tower Inn, St. David's, was transferred from William Morgan to Morgan. All license holders were then instructed to pay their fees, so that they would have their licenses handed to them. APPLICATION. Mr Hubbard, solic*tor c!f the G.W.R., applied on behalf of Mr Stuart Bant for a license for the relreshUJent rooms to be built at, the Fish- guard Harbour Works Station. The station would be the property of the Fishguard and Rosslare Harbour Co. This was an undertak- ing in which two railways were interested, viz., the G.W.R. and the Great Southern and Western Company of Ireland. The former would have entire control at this side. Mr Buot was manager of all the G.W.R. Hotels, including the Wyncliffe Hotel. The control of these rooms was most excellent. He was ap- pointed in 1899 to hold all licenses on behalf of the G.W.R. Passing to the question of the premises themselves, he said they were all aware of the importance of the works being carried out at Fishguard. The G.W.R. were spending a, great deal of money to shorten the route to Ireland. The difference in the sea route would be some 2 or 3 hours. There would be the cattle trade to consider and also the troops passing from England to Ireland. In the Act of 1904 there was a clause about Monopoly Value which was not of much im- portance to them, because there was no mono- poly value in the case of railway refreshment rooms. Railway refreshment rooms only Catered for the travelling public, and they found that 60 per cent. of the profits from those on the G.W.R. were from non-excisable articles. The Clerk said he thought the clause applied to railway refreshment rooms. Mr Hubbard then produced an "Echo"of Jan. 11th containing copy of their application. Mr W. G. James asked whether the public, apart from the travelling public, would be I excluded ? I Mr Hubbard said that every effort would be taken to keep the refreshment rooms for the travelling public. Mr W. J. Canning, Goodwick, said he duly served notices of the applications, also notices were posted on the site on Jan. 12, and on the 14th on Llanwnda Church. Mr G. Lambert Gibson, the chief engineer, said he was responsible for the preparation of the plan the magistrates had before them. There were at least two rooms for the use of the public. The site was over a quarter of a blilo from the Hotel Wj-nciiii3, up a gradient Of 1 in 13, and it would take anyone 10 minutes to walk the distance. The Clerk asked if anyone opposed the ap- plication, and as there were none, the court then cleared. The license was granted for 3 years, on pay- ment of £ 20 a year, but the application would have to be renewed then. The reason for granting it for 3 years was to see how the monopoly value would increase. APPLICATION FOR REDUCTION OF COMPENSATION CHARGE. Mr Rogers applied for a reduction of the charge under Compensation for refreshment rooms at Letterston. The Cierk said they had power to reduce it to one-third of what the county had put on. The application was refused. ALTERATION. Mr D. James, Rose and Crown," Goodwick, was granted leave to alter two windows at that public house. MAINTENANCE OEDBB. Mr D. W. Lewis, relieving officer, Fishguard, applied for an order against Thos. Davies 18 Eva Street, Mountain Ash, to pay Is 6d weekly towards the maintenance of his father and mother, James and Mary Davies, Summer Hill, who were allowed 4s weekly. He was a collir married, with two children, and had paid at the rate of Is 6d up to Jan. 16, inclnding costs and arrears. An order for Is 6d weekly was granted. VACCINATION. Mr Alfred Maine Treglown, Goodwick, was charged with not having his child Lister Treglown successfully vaccinated, not having applied for an exemption order. Mr Treglown said that he had disregarded the order and should have applied for an ex- emption order, but failed to do so, so the matter rested with the magistrates. Mr D. W. Lewis said that under Section 31 the magistrates could order Mr Treglown to have the child vaccinated within a certain time* • Mr Treglown said that he did not believe in vaccination. The magistrates made an order that the child be vaccinated in a month. Mr Treglown said that he supposed that it was no good applying for an exemption order. The Clerk said it was too late. ALLEGED CRUELTY TO A HORSE. <iidnev Walters, and Wm. Raymond were _iiarffed by Inspector Roberts, R.S.P.C.A, of Neviand, for working a horse in an unfit state. The former did not appear, his father stating in evidence that his son was very ill and un- able to attend. The case was adjourned for a month. TRESPASSING. Wm. Jones was charged by Mr Thos.

Curious Old Remedies. POWDERED SPIDERS AND LIVE TOADS. What would you think nowadays of a doctor who prescribed the blood from a black at's tail for skin troubles, live toads tied behind t e ear to stop bleeding, or powdered spider as an unfailing reme- dy for various diseases ? J 0 e' Some of the so-calied remed es of our ancestors were certainly curious and rhey had even less reasons in them than the iJiodern ointments and salves which often fail in tadir missons on a> count of the rancid animal f.it rid coarse minerals present in them. if j Fortunately, twentieth c ntury science has revealed how to take full advantage of the unexam- pled medicinal powers gfeoreyfl up in Nature's own green herbs. In the pogul«,Ubkia-cuie, Zam-Buk, we find the valuable juices di a medicinal herbs j employed in a really ^onflerful manner. These saps and juices have Undergone new processes of refinement, and in Z&nyBuk they are combined in a unique and effectiveytvay. This has the effect of widening still furt^ifer ihe gap between Zam-Buk and ordinary ointmeatsy salves and liniments, An unhealthy skin is pr^fcycally an impossibility with regular dressings of (Ms original healing balm. For dispelling slria diseases, such as eczema, ulcers, bad legs, jihjsy scalp sores, ringworm, and pimples, Zam-BtBi is most valuable. It soothes pain of neuralgia and rheumatism, soon allays irritation in a s&re, dispels disease, reduces swel- ling and inflammation, and finally restores the skin to perfect health. The benefits from using Zam-Buk are more than skin deep," because the balsams sink deep into the tissues, and sweep away I disease from them. Least of all should sufferers from eczema expect to derive any real benefit from the fatty emulsions and so-called blood purifiers." Zam-Buk has the unique virtue of regenerating the whole of the tissues. Rub it in to kill pain, kill disease, and make the skin soft, healthy, and clear. A box of Zam-Buk (1/1 £ or 2/9 at the chemist's) should always be Kept in the house.

I thought you engaged one yesterday." Mrs. Often: "Oh, she's only a lady's- maid. She merely waits on me. I'm looking to another to wait on her." All I have in the world I owe to my wife," murmured the millionaire, who was about to fail, and I think I'd better square up with her now." And he proceeded to put all his posses- sions in his wife's name.

WHAT SOLVA PEOPLE SAID. I I "Yes, we certainly place confidence in a neighbour's word, but are the cures thorough, lasting cures ? That is what Solva people have asked when they have read of neighbours over in Haverfordwest having been cured by Doan's backache kidney pills. fro all these the following emphatic statement will come as welcome news:— Mr Howard Williams lives at 1, Dark Street, Haverfordwest. He is a hairdresser by pro- fession, and is well known in Haverfordwest, where he has resided for many years. On the 7th December, 1901, he said:—"In the course of my business I have a great deal of stooping to do, and this always aggravated the kidney complaint from which I suffered for a consider- able time. The pains in my back were dimply dreadful, and whenever I caught a cold it in- variably flew to my kidneys, causing awful backaches. I suffered o from attacks of dizziness, and splitting Jgteadaches. At last I got into a very low aqflf run-down condition, and nothing seemed t4- iset me right, until I began with Doan's backpRshe kidney pills. The first few doses of the Viedicine made me feel much better, so I decidfed to continue with it. Now, I am pleased to I am in much better health than I have feeen for a long time, my back is much stronggff andjthe pains have dis- appeared. Doan's pins have done me the world of good, and I shallfslways be pleased to re- commend them. (Sikned) Howard Williams." 17 months late On 11th May, 1903, our representative mm Mr Williams, and asked him how he ha^kept since his cure. Mr Williams ^pliedijf—"I have been better in every way s|hcejf took Doan's backache kidney pills, and ha^jjjf not suffered anything like I used to before I used that splendid medicine. I believe Doan's pills to be a thoroughly relia- ble remedy for backaches and other forms of kidney complaint." If you are ill, write and fully describe your case to us. We shall be pleased to give you the best advice in our power, free of charge. You can depend upon your letter being treated in strictest confidence.
