Jones, Porth, and Mr Emlyn Davies, A.R.C.M., London, assisted on Tuesday evening by Mrs Jones (Egryn), the North Wales seeress, who conduoted a joint mission in connection with the Welsh Nonconformist churches during the week. The mission, which was largely attended throughout, proved very remarkable, the addresses by Mr Jones and the singing by Mr Emlyn Davies proving to be strikingly impressive and effective. The services in most instances were conducted in Welsh, but on Sunday afternoon and Monday evening they were mainly in English. Next Sunday and Monday Mr Sidney Evans and Mr Sam Jenkins, the two well-known revivalists, will conduct services at different places of worship in the town

A REMARKABLE LETTER.
A REMARKABLE LETTER. THE LADY TYPIST AND BILE BEANS. The following letter, written by a London lady typist to the proprietors of Bile Beans, will interest many of our readers 38, Moncrieff-street, Peckham, London, S.E. Gentlemen,—Three years ago I was engaged as a lady clerk in the office of a city firm, and had to be at my work by 8.30 every morning. This meant having to catch an early train to the City in all weathers, sitting in a stuffy office all day, taking food irregularly, and reaching home again late every evening to such comforts as one can get in lodgings. One morning I awoke with a violent headache, a thing almost unknown to me previously, but I found it had come to stay For the next three months it scarcely ceased Then there came a nasty sickness in the morning, followed by dizziness, and, occasionally, fainting during the day. I attended the Women's Hospital for months after having advice from three doctors. Yet, though at first I benefitted by the treatment, I soon went from bad to worse again. My friends told me I looked like death, and I think I gave up all hope, for I was almost a skeleton, and the pain in my side, due no doubt to liver complaint, was like knives going through me I After trying everything I could get, and doctors' medicine, and hospital treatment so long, with so poor result, I adopted a friend's advice-gave up everything else, and tried what Bile Beans could do for me. They did wonders Before the third box was finished I was like a new woman. In two months they cured me, whereas doctors had failed to do so in two years. I am writing this letter almost a year after my cure, and during that time I have had no recurrence of my old symptoms. So there is no question as to the permanency of my cure. Yours truly, (Signed), A. CAMPBELL." Bile Beans which did so much for Miss Campbell may be applied to your case. They are obtainable from all chemists at Is lid or 2s 9d per box. They are purely vegetable. They con- tain no harmful drugs, and they are the finest family medicine obtainable.

Tordoff) reported that the Medical Association had elected the following gentlemen as their representatives on the Committee :—Drs O'Donnell, Neale, and Bray. Dr King and Dr Powell having an equal number of votes, it was resolved that another canvass be taken as to which gentleman should be elected to the remaining vacancy. — Miss Aldred (lady superintendent) reported that on March 31st, there were three patients in hospital six were admitted during April, four discharged convalescent, one removed from the books, one died, and three patients re- mained in hospital on May 3rd.-The tender of Mr Griffin, hairdresser, Holton-road, at 93 10s, was accepted for shaving and haircutting of patients at the Hospital for the next twelve months.-This concluded the business.
POLICE INSPECTION AT BARRY…
POLICE INSPECTION AT BARRY DOCKS. FINE BODY OF MEN REVIEWED BY CAPTAIN TERRY. The annual inspection of E. Division of Glamorgan County Constabulary took place at Barry Docks on Wednesday week last. The inspecting officer was Captain H. D. Terry, who was accompanied by Captain Lionel Lindsay, the Chief Constable, and Deputy Chief Constable J. F. Giddings. About 90 officers and men paraded in the yard of Holton-road Schools, the officers present being Inspectors D. Morris (Barry Docks), J. H. Hallett (Penarth), and W.

,'" jBARRY SEAMAN'S CLAIM.
BARRY SEAMAN'S CLAIM. DECISION BY JUDGE OWEN. WHAT IS THE LEGAL PORT OF DISCHARGE ? At the March sitting of Barry County Court, his Honour Judge Owen reserved decision in the case F. Sedrick, a Swedish seaman, of Barry Docks, against the North Atlantic Shipping Company, Bristol. At the last sitting of the Court on Tuesday week last, his Honour now stated that it was an action in which Sedrick claimed £1 5s 10d, amount of expenses from Hull to Barry, from the defendants, who were the owners of the steamship Madawaska. The amount of the claim was not in dispute, but the action was brought as a test case to have determined the legality of certain clauses in the appeal, Straits of Dover, 1899, King's Bench, which decided whether a seaman, discharged at a foreign port, and the master neglects to supply him with a passage home, is entitled to be provided with a passage to a port in the United Kingdom from which he shipped, or a port agreed to by him On the 9th of January, 1904, the plaintiff signed on board the Madawaska at Barry for a voyage, which ended at Bremerhaven, in the North Sea. He was paid off on the 20th of June, 1904, and was given £ 1 3s 6d, the sum being sufficient to defray plaintiff's expenses and passage home. The nearest port in the United Kingdom was Mull, and plaintiff proceeded there. The claim now was for expenses from Hull to Barry. The Judge said he had not seen the ship's articles. It was agreed that when a seaman was discharged on the Continent the master must furnish him with means to reach the nearest port in the United Kingdom. Section 115 of the Act provided, in the case of a foreign-going vessel registered in the United Kingdom, agree- ments should be signed by the crew in the presence of the Superintendent of the Board of Trade, who shall see that such agreements are thoroughly understood and duly attested, and the Superinten- dent was required to give the master of the vessel a certificate of due execution of the requirements of the Act. In this case all those formalities were complied with. The only ground in support of the plaintiff's claim was that, although a seaman might agree to be sent back to a certain port when the voyage ended, he could not do so at the time of signing the articles, as the section only provided for the arrangement being made at the time of discharge. His Honour said although Section 186 of the Act expressly allowed such agreement being made at the time of the seaman's discharge, he did not find anything to provide the agreement being made at the time the articles were signed. In the absence of such provision, he thought the clause was legal, and must be enforced. In the case, Edwards against Steel, Young and Company, 1897, the facts upon this point were much the same. It was held by the Court of Appeal that where a master deposited a sum which was con- sidered enough by the consular officer, he had complied with Section 186 of the Act, and thus shipowners were not liable. The Master of the Rolls, in giving judgment, said Clause D made the consular officer the arbitrator, and if the master of the vessel deposited that sum, no claim could be made. His Honour believed that in the present case the master had complied with Clause 186. Then, again, when the man was paid off, he signed in person with respect to all claims and wages or otherwise in respect to the voyage, and the Act provided that this shall operate as a mutual dis- charge and settlement of all things connected with the voyage. He thought that was an answer to plaintiff's claim, and gave judgment for the defendants, with costs. — Mr J. A. Hughes, solici- tor, Barry (who appeared for the plaintiff on instructions from the .National Sailors and Fire- men's Union) Will you allow the plaintiff to appeal, your Honour ?—The Judge On what grounds ?-Mr Hughes Well, it is rather difficult for me to explain.—The Judge If I give leave without grounds I shall get my knuckles rapped. What answer is there ? You will not have the validity of the clause decided ?—Mr Hughes My clients wish to appeal, your Honour. — The Judge asked Mr A. Parsons, B.A.L., who was instructed by Messrs Vaughan and Roch, solicitors, Cardiff, for the defendants, what he had to say as to leave being given ?—Mr Parsons I quite follow how conclusive the points seem. My friend may get an expression of opinion on one of them. I do not object, your Honour.—The Judge Then I give judgment as in the case the other day (mean- ing apparently the case against the Barry Educational Authority), and I think it will have the same result, (Laughter.) Leave to appeal was given, costs being granted under Scale C.

7 ECZEMA AFTER INFLUENZA.
7 ECZEMA AFTER INFLUENZA. ZAM-BUK ENDS A WOMAN'S TORTURE, Influenza so weakens the system that many other ills may follow in its train. In the case of Mrs Sarah Ann Walker, a shroud maker, of 57, Prim- rose-street, Hanningham, Bradford, influenza was followed by a severe attack of eczema, and only Zam-Buk proved equal to dispelling the disease. Mrs Walker, who is well known and highly respected as an ardent Churchwoman and former Sunday School worker, said to a Bradford, felegraph reporter I was covered almost from head to foot with sores, and the great irritation almost drove me out of my mind. I was naturally compelled to keep indoors. I had to abandon my work and the little money I had put by me for old age soon began to go in experimenting with useless medicines and ointments. Nothing seemed able to give me the least real relief. One day we got a sample box of Zam-Buk and I tried it first on my hands. This brought to so much relief that I determined to give it a fair trial. I bought a box at the local stores, and from that moment was on the road to recovery. Three boxes completely cured me. The irritation eeased, I got more comfort and rest, the spots gradually disappeared, and new, healthy skin formed in place of the sores. I was able to resume work, and from that day to the present I have had no return of the trouble- some disease. I attribute my complete and permanent cure entirely to Zam-Buk, and many of my friends to whom I recommended it have also benefited." Illness weakens-the skin and renders it liable to disease. Zam-Buk is a tonic food for the skin. It gives the tissues tone," eradicates disease, and is thus unequalled for all eruptions, pimples, blackheads, heat rash, chafing, ringworm, poisoned or festering sores, eesema, psoriasis, ulcers, piles, bad legs, diseased ankles, sore backs, scurvy, dandruff, scalp irritation, barber's rash, abscesses, boils, cuts, bruises, burns, scalds, sprains, sore feet, neuralgia and nerve pains, colds, and all inflam- mations and diseases of the skin. Price Is lid per box, or 2s 9d for large size (28 9d box contains nearly four times the lfe-I-Jd) of all chemists, or post free for same price from Zam-Buk (Jo., 4, Red Cross-street, London, E.G.
BARRY PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE.
BARRY PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE. HIGH RATE OF MORTALITY. Mr J. A. Manaton, J.P., occupied the chair temporarily at the first meeting of the newly- constituted Health Committee of the Barry Dis- trict Council on Thursday afternoon, the 4th instant. Messrs J. A. Lovat-Fraser, D. Morgan, Dr P. J. O'Donnell, James Jones, Dr Sixsmith, and J. E. Levers were also in attendance. Dr Sfxsmith moved that Dr O'Donnell be re- appointed to the chair for the ensuing year. — Mr D. Morgan seconded, and Mr Levers supported.— Dr O'Donnell was thereupon unanimously elected to the position, and suitably returned thanks for the honour conferred upon him. No alteration was made in the day and time of meeting of the Committee. Mr S. B. Sommerfield, town sanitary inspector, reported that during the past month 100 houses were inspected; notices served to abate 35 nuisances, 32 of which had been complied with. There were eight infected houses in the town, and 68 extra visits paid thereto. Twenty-three houses and twenty library books were disinfected. Ten samples of milk had been taken, and all found genuine and equal to the recognised standard. The report of Mr W. J. Hopkins, port sanitary inspector, showed that during April 263 vessels were inspected, 42 found defective, and notices served to abate the same. Nineteen visits had been paid to workshops at the docks, and no contravention of the Factories and Workshops' Act discovered. Two vessels were fumigated during the month. The question of engaging a geological expert to ascertain the source of the Barry Water Supply was referred to the District Council.. It was also resolved to solicit the aid of the police to protect the street lamps from the practice of throwing stones by boys which had become very prevalent of late.. The Surveyor. (Mr J. C. Pardoe) reportad that a man named William Rue, 62, Church-road, had been in the habit of turning his horse into the Pencoetre Allotments at night, and taking the animal away early in the morning. Two of the Council's employees had detectecl Rue one evening opening the gate of the field, and turn the horse to feed on the allotments.—The Clerk (Mr T. B. Tordoff) was instructed to warn the man. Dr G. Neale, J.P., the medical officer of health, reported that during the past quarter there were registered 216 births (112: males and 104 females), equal to a birthrrate per 1,00& per annum of 29. During the corresponding quarter last year the birth-rate was 34'5. The number of deaths registered from all causes was 119 (64 males and 55 females), equal to a death-rate per 1,000 per annum of 16, compared with 12 5, the rate of the first quarter of the previous year. Forty-one infants under one year had died during the quarter, working out at a death-rate per 1,000 per annum of 5'4. From the principal zymotie diseases nine deaths were registered, equal to a death-rate per 1,000 of 1-2, compared with 0.01 the rate for the corresponding quarter of last year. Fourteen inquests were held during the quarter, against 14 in the corresponding quarter of last year. There were 115 cases of infectious diseases reported by the medical practitioners, against 33 in the first quarter of the preceding year. The diseases were classified as follow Scarlet fever 43, diphtheria 59, enteric fever 1 and erysipelas 12. Dr Neale also stated that the outbreak of diphtheria which commenced in November last continued till the middle of March. The disease generally was mild in character, out of 59 cases reported this quarter, only four ending fatally.—Mr Morgan Our death-rate is very high. about the highest point reached; in fact the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council have a lower average rate.-Dr Neale: Yes, that is so. Instructions were given to advertise for tenders for the painting of the lamp pillars, &c. Tenders were received for grazing on the Slaughter House Field, and that of Mr W. Jeremiah, butcher, at 49 5s per annum being the highest was accepted. In reply to an application made by the Committee, the Local Government Board replied giving sanction to the Council, on the advice of the Medical Officer of Health, expending a reasonable sum in the gratuitous supply of anti-toxin, the serum used in cases of diphtheria.-On the motion of Mr Manaton it was resolved to allow the Medical Oflicer to grant it in cases not dealt with by the poor law authorities. The Clerk (Mr T. B. Tordoff) intimated that it had come to his knowledge that Mr R. Forrest was still prepared to sell the Beggar's Well allotments at Barry to the Council at £100 per acre. The members felt that it would be an advantage to purchase the land, and it was resolved to make formal application to the Local Government Board for power to obtain a loan. Mr R. W. Hall, secretary of the Barry May Show, applied that the fire appliances and water carts of the Council be allowed to take part in the annual parade.-The request was granted, and the meeting concluded.
