BETTER UNSAID." 1 CARMARTHEN COUNTY COUN- I GllLOR'S BANDY WORDS. -1 POLICE SCANDALS. At the meeting of the Cal-marth???n- smre County Council held at Llanelly on AVednesday, Mr C. E. Morris moved •' Thar, except, when engaged in cheir ordinary diituas, none ot the police ot the county' be employed out of tkis oountv wlthout. the previous written assent of the council chairman., as well as of any other necessary authority." In view of the recent addition of twelve men to the force, be said if the force was insufficient until recently he could not seo how it was competent for it tl, be depleted to the extent of 30 or 40 men. Sir James HLIls-lohne-s said the only occasion he knew of when a large num- ber of police were sent out of the county, was when the Prince of A\ aies was invented at Carnarvon Mr. J. Dndlev Drummond said he ww oompelled to say that, he dis- approved of sencling the police to the Rhondda w hen there were riots in the I county of Carmarthen. The motion was a.Lrr^vi to Increase In Police Force. I Mr. James Phillips then moved IS protest against the action of the ma-gisterial members of the standing joi nt cum-ittee in resolving upon an unnecessary increase of the police force in spite of the protests of the county oouncil members of the committee. He said he did not intend to ral,e the Question as to whether the increase was necessary, but he wished to einpha- feise the point that the people's repre- sentatives were outvoted by a class of persons who were responsible to no one except themselves. The Question of removing the police headquarters from Llandiio to Llaneny had been referred back. If the chief constable was transferred to Llanelly thev would have no more of the recent scandals in the police force, neither would there be any necessity for the dismissal of innocent men. The Clerk said the standing ioint committee bad plenary powers. Three Constables? Mr. D, B. Jones asked whether rue council could not send a recommenda- hon to the committee that the police at Llanelly be increased without adding to the police force of the county. It came out in evidence at the Carmar- -then Assizes that on one night in Dec. the town of Llanelly, with a population of over 30,000, was under the super- v ision of only three constables, while at Llandiio, one-fifteenth the >ize, there were seven constables. i Mr. Dudley Druuimonct defended the action of the standing jomt commitee, and said that it vi-,oiild be far better if some of the remarks made by Mr. PhiUips with regard to the police had been left. art said Mr. D. C Parry (Llanelly) said people in the country had no conception of the change that had taken plsce in industrial areas. There was at one; time certain respect paid to old age and men of character, hut to-day people" were openly insulted, and even the did not have fair play. Mr John Thomas (Llanelly) said the motion was nothing but spleen toward? Llanelly. Chairman appealed to Mr Phif- Lids to withdraw his motion, and it was not put to the meeting.

"WHAT SHALL WE DO \VITH OUR BOYS?" iI (" Leader" PhotograPh.) Seven years ago the ever present Pro blel-i, What sb,a-ll we dowittt our l>Gys?" was solved, to a certain extent, by Mr. David Meager, a benevolent gant Ionian who has ^pent a. lifetime Ka.o'eci School work at Swansea. He realised that uhe majority of the boys who throng our streets caipe from poor but respectable home, where the hcii.=ej wore tco small to permit of a room being p!ace.d apart, in the even- ings for the younger members of the family. As a result the iads, who in many instances had just started to earn for themselves, had io go out into the streets. They wore not welcomed at anv of the existing institutions mainly because their clothes were not exactly high c l ass, and their manners were not al- ways as ge?cecd as was desiraMe. Mr. Meager rc?u:-e<I that if a. room could be secured for the exclusive tJ4} of these lads, where innocent games could be provided, the difficulty would be overcome. He at once put his idea ir, to practice, and at the Old Ragged School the Bovs' Club was instituted. Jtnrovro an amazing success. Last night a "I,eailer n representa- tive and a "Leader" photographer paid a visit to the new headquarters of the Ragged School Boys Club. The suacious basement of the new building in Pleasant-street has been placed at their disposal, and there. from five o'clock until about half-past nine an average of two hundred boys spend a part of their time every evening of the we-ck, Thev enter -and leave without, anv restriction as to their movements, and have bagatelle boards (our photogra h shows the ciub expej-t making a shot), ring games, draughts, dominoes, and other pastimes, and a splendid assortment ot magazines and I papers always available. A card of membership is issued, (no subscript ions being asked for), and the few rules — ''Wipe your feet Oil tlw mat," "N o swearing, smoking or gambling" —are rigidly observed. The discipline cf the lads is really excellent, and the unwritten laws of obedience, fair play, and "take your I deieat well," are rarely broken Mr. Meager is naturally delighted with the success of his experiment. is reoeiving valuable assistance from c number of willing helpers, notably [ Messrs. T. ill. Davies, B. Maggs, T. Giiow, R. J. Tregaskes, H. Jones, and R. S. Meager (secretary); and alto- gether the Swansea Ragged School Lads' Games and Reading: Rocm has more than justified its existence.
THE FIRST STEP WHEN A CtHlD IS ILL. No matter what ails your child, a gentle, thorough laxative should always tr the first treatment given to regulate and cleanse the bowels. Look at the child's tongue, raother If it is white or yellowish, coated, in- stead of being clean and pink, be sure that the little one's r.tomach is out of order. Costiveness, a hot, brow, peev- uh temper, and restlessness are signs that the child needs a gentle, cleansing laxative. A teaspoonful of California Syrup of Figs (look for the blue-ring trade mark) will relieve the bowels, and bring back appetite and good temper. You are not drugging your child when you give California Syrup of Figs. The ,und sleep which it brings is an effect of luscious fruit-juices, Nature's plea- sant laxative, the delicious taste of which pleases the child's "sweet Instructions how to give California Syrup of Figs to children of all ages, and also to adults, are printed in the Direc- tions for Use wrapped round the bottle. Be exact.. Ask plainly for "CaIi fornia Syrup of Figs" at Is. Itd and 1?. fkl. The name and blue-ring trade mark of tho California Fig Syrup Co. o'stmguish the original and genuine Syrup of Figs, as prescribed by doc- tors.

Asked by Pendragon," what- he thought about the prospects, Trew was inclined to be cautious. We have an <periniental lot," he remarked, but I think we shall win. If we d(,n't, it won't be for the wont of trying." Watts' Peculiar Position, I Pendragon was given to under- stand this morning that there is no cer- tainty that Willie Watts, of Llanelly, will play against Scotland. It seems that Wetter, the. first reserve centre, notified Mr. W. E. Rees on Tuesday that he was unwell and could not trav&l. Then | I come the news that, Geen had cried off. Mr. R?es noLjne? Watts that he would he required, but Wetter afterwards in- timated that he was fit to travel. Being iirst reserve, Wetter has the right to play if he is fit. Under the circnmstances, both Wet- ter and Watts will travel. The ques- tion as to which of the two will play will not. be decided until Saturday morn- ] mg, Time of Arrival.

WATERY ECZEMA ON FOREHEAD. College Road, Framlinghatn, Suffolk, Eng.—" My boy's head and forehead, Under his ears and on his shoulders, were affected with watery eczema. When he wa" about six weeks' old he began to have it. The rash kept going out on his forehead to his ears. Then his head and ears were right raw. The eczema looked like red and scabby patches at first; when you touched them water oozed out of them in raw plaoes. It did itch very much he was always scratching and rubbing. I don't think it stopped him much from sleeping, more ox day times. He was fretful at times. The eczema took all his hair off first, but it has grown thick again since his head has been well. I tried first, but they did no good. Then I saw in the paper about Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment. I used the complete treatment, both Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, every morning, a,nd they cured him. Cuticura Soap and Ointment gave mv boy a beautiful skin." (Signed) Mrs. M.
