BARRY SAILOR DROWNED. IN RETURNING TO HIS SHIP. Thomas Hansell (38), marine fireman on board the s.s. Vauxhall Bridge, of West Hartlepool, was drowned at Barry Docks on Friday night last. The vessel was lying under No. 1 Tip, and was expected to proceed to sea at midnight. About eleven o'clock Hansell returned to the vessel with a shipmate, and the watchman, William Pritchard, alleged that both men were under the influence of drink. Deceased went on hands and knees as if to attempt to climb up the ladder from the quay wall to the side of the vessel, but he tumbled into the dock. In about four minutes Hansell was got out of the water by the chief officer, but he showed no signs of life. Artificial respiration was resorted to, but Dr Bray pronounced life to be extinct, and the body was removed to the Town Mortuary by Dock-constable O'Neill. An inquest was held on the body at the Central Police Station, Barry Docks, on Monday, before Mr E. Llewelyn Reece, deputy coroner, when Mr William Cayley, Board of Trade inspector, gave evidence of identification. -William Pritchard, ship's watchman, said the deceased, who was very drunk, was returning on board the ship, about eleven o'clock on Friday night, and was about to step on to a ladder to get on board, when he slipped on the quay wall, and rolled into the dock, but he was recovered by the chief officer and a rigger within four minutes. The body was placed on board, but although means of artificial respira- tion were resorted to, Dr Bray, on arrival, pro- nouncod life to be Coroner having described the gangway as dangerous, the jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
DEATH FROM INJUDICIOUS FEEDING AT BARRY DOCK. DOCTOR'S SIGNIFICANT WARNING. On the body of Anthony William Rollins, aged three months, the infant son of Anthony Rollins, a ship's steward, of 13, Burlington-street, Barry Docks, an inquest was held on Monday last, by Mr E. Llewellyn Rees, the deputy coroner. In her evidence, the mother, Isabella Rollins, admitted having, during the past six weeks, fed the child with Swiss milk and Neaves' food.—Dr Sixsmith gave it as his opinion that this to a child under four months old meant certain death. No infant, he said, should be fed with such food, until at least teething had began. Death in this case was caused by convulsions, due to flatulence, brought about by improper feeding.

Starved by Ansemia thousands of young women are rendered Bloodless, Breathless, Weak, Fickle of Appetite, Pale and Melancholy. There is abundant New Rich Blood for them in Dr.Williams' Fink Pills The insidious trouble that most frequently afflicts^ young women is Ansemia—or too little blood. Serious evils follow Ansemia, as is shown in the cases of two sisters, the Misses Cottrell. Miss Florence Cottrell, when interviewed at Rose-terrace, Victoria-street. Bristol, stated "I had always been delicate, and no one thought that I would ever be strong. I became very emaciated and had no appetite. My weakness was dread- ful, and I felt so dejected that I had no energy for anything. Even a little exer- cise was too much for me. Finally I had to give up walking altogether. I went to the hospital for some time, but came out with the same hopeless feeling. I tried tonics and medi- cines, but to no pur- 11 I. t, 1 ,.t I II I I i Two Anatmic Sisters cured by Dr. WilliaLmW Pink Pills, pose. I was subject to constant neuralgia, and my troubles dragged me down until I was only skin and bone. I read of many cures by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and tried a box. Then 1 felt brighter, and my appetite improved I was less languid. Gradually, I became stronger, could walk well, aud the neuralgia vanished. With a few boxes of pills I was perfectly well. I have quite a colour now, and I go daily to bueiness." Miss Beatrice Cottrell, aged eighteen, added "From childhood I have suffered with fearful headaches and fainting fits after I left school these became worse. I became very thin and pale my blood was poor, and I felt too ill to work. After taking Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People my headaches were certainly relieved, my appetite greatly improved, and before long I was positively cured. Now I am ever so strong." When the vital organs become weakened through anaemia, they can be restored to healthy activity only by an increased supply of rich pure blood, which is supplied by Dr Williams' Pink Pills. These pills have cured Anasmia, Indigestion, Bile, Eczema, Consumption, Kidney Disease, Rheu- matism, Sciatica, St. Vitus' Dance, Neuralgia, Paralysis, Locomotor Ataxy invaluable also for r Ladies' Ailments. Ask at shops for the genuine pills, labelled Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. If in doubt, send 2s 9d for one box, or 13s 9d for six, to Dr Williams' Medicine Co., Holborn-viaduct, London.

Lady Romilly was very much affected by the death of her husband, but her demise was entirely unex- pected. It was a week before her death that Mr D. T. Alexander. J. P., Bryneithejl, the agent for Lord Romilly's estate, saw her ladyship in London.

TWENTIETH CENTURY CLUB, BARRY. On Monday, March 5th, Mr T. H. Thomas gave an admirable lecture on Keltic Art*' to a very appreciative audience. He described in graphic terms the wanderings of the different branches of the Keltic race, and the gradual evolution of their art. He illustrated the development of their art by a series of magnificent slides, showing specimens of artistic work produced by the British Kelts. Thanks to the generosity of a friend from Dinas Powis, we had a splendid lantern and lanternist. The audience was dis- tinctly good, but we look forward to a time in the immediate future when for such a lecture the Co-operative Hall will be too small, and an intelligent and well educated population will utilise the interesting lectures provided free of charge for Barry by the Twentieth Century Club and the Educational Society. The next lecture of the Club will be on March 21st, when Dr Eric Evans, of Cardiff, will lecture on "Infectious Diseases and how to fight them." Women only will be admitted, and our women members will have the opportunity of hearing from a woman doctor some of the latest theories about infectious diseases. Mothers and teachers will, no doubt, utilise this opportunity. E. P. HUGHES, Vice-President.

CADBURY nm cocoa ■ "A really HI valuable Food." I A FOUNDATION OF STRENGTH. The Medical Magazine says—" For strength, purity, and nourishment there is nothing superior to be found to Cadbury's." This high testimony is endorsed by all regular users of Cadbury's cocoa, which is a strength-giving and sustaining beverage, suitable alike in infancy, prime of life, and old age, The purity of Cadbury's cocoa is a great point with the manufacturers and no deleterious ingredients are used to flavour or thicken the beverage. Cadbury's is cocoa, and the best cocoa only, manufactured amid pure surroundings in the heart of England. No other cocoa is prepared in the Cadbury way, none yield a beverage so pure, so whole- some, and so delicious. Choose it for economy, for fine flavour, for digestibility, and because it is the finest cocoa. ¡

LADY'S CHRONIC SICKNESS CURED BY BILE BEANS AFTER 15 YEARS' TORMENT. Mrs Maria Burrows, of 19c. Kingwood Road, Fulham, London, S. W., takes a delight in telling how Bile Beans" acted like a charm" on her, banishing long-standing sickness. To a London reporter she said For fifteen years I suffered terribly from indigestion and water brash. Everything I ate disagreed with me to such an » extent that the very sight of food made me afraid, and I simply had to starve myself for days together. After meals I used to feel giddy and sick, and often, even when starving. I vomited quantities of watery fluid. At night I was unable to sleep. As a result I naturally became very weak and depressed. 5. I attended a hospital for a short time, but the treatment I received there did me no good. Then my son recommended Bile Beans, and I commenced to take them. After the first box I felt a deal better. Food stayed in my stomach, I had less discomfort, and, in fact at the end of a month I was completely cured. I can now eat and enjoy a hearty meal without experiencing any painful after-effects. Thanks entirely to Bile Beans, my health was never better than it is to-day Bile Beans literally "act like a charm" in banishing dyspepsia. They are aa ideal family medicine. They stimulate the natural flow of the gastric juices in the stomach. For sick headaches, indigestion, liver chill, constipation, piles, anaemia, palpitation, and nervous and general debility. Bile Beans are a sovereign remedy. Of all chemists, or from the Bile Bean Mfg. Co., 4, Red Cross Street, London, E. C. Sold only in sealed boxes at lili and 2/9. a

BARRY PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE. THE SCAVENGING WORK OF THE I TOWN. The Public Health Committee of the Barry District Council met on Friday, the 2nd instant, Dr P. J. O'Donnell (chairman) presiding. There were also present, Messrs J. E. Levers, John Williams, D. Morgan, Dr Sixsmith, J. A. Lovat Fraser, B.A.L., J. A. Manaton, J.P., and Jamee Jono.o- Mr W. J. Hopkins, port san ry inspector, reported that during February 2M vessels were inspected, 42 found defective or dirty, and 24 written notices and 16 verbal orders were given to the masters to have the nuisances abated. The monthly report of the Town Sanitary Inspector (Mr S. B Sommerfleld) showed that 90 houses were inspected, 69 nuisances were discovered, and orders served to abate the same. To 93 infected houses in the town, 163 extra visits had been paid. Though scarlet fever still prevailed, it was of a mild type, Mr Sommer- field further reported that he discovered eighteen persons had been living at No. 43. Morel-street, and the occupants had been immediately reduced to eleven, and the house thoroughly cleansed.—The Cbairman That is fresh evidence of the mistake we are making in calculating that, on an average, 5i persons occupy each house.—Dr Sixsmith Every- one is so busy "kow-towing" to our spiritual advisers that we have no opportunity of looking after the health of the town. Dr Williams, the county medical officer of health, having, at therequestof the residents in the vicinity, paid a. visit to the Refuse Destructor, owing toalleged offensive smells arising therefrom, the Chairman said that to take an action like this was scarcely respectful to the Health Committee.—Dr Neale (the town medical officer of health): MrGwyn Morris has informed the committee of the County Council; I believe he is the chief complainant. "he Chair- man If there are any complaints at all, they should be made to this Committee. It is unfair for Mr Gwyn Morris to use his position to make charges of which we have no knowledge. The Sub-Committee appointed in the matter recommended several improvements at the Public: Abattoir, chief amongst which was the suggestion thaS~tiie pens should be converted into cattle stalls, and vice-versa, inasmuca a5 It would be of greater convenience to the butchers.- Levers There is a boiler there for boiling tripe but it is never used. (Laughter.) Mr Morgan: Sell it for scrap iron.—It was decided not to remove the boiler for the present. The Town Medical Officer of Health intimated that the large steamer Kent arrived at Barry Docks that morning with an apprentice on board suffering from typhoid fever. He (Dr Neale) proposed to remove the case to the hospital, but in case the 'captain refused to pay the cost of maintenance whilst thereat, he desired to know what steps to take in the matter ?—Mr Manaton If he should refuse to pay the £3 a week, you had better make the best terms possible.—This was agreed to. As the only Labour member," Dr Sixsmith protested against a scandal which was being enacted in the town, one of the employees of the scavenging contractor, he alleged, being paid only 22s 6d per week, out of which he had to supporc himself, wife, and four children. He (Dr Sixsmith) could not live on this amount for a day.—Mr Manaton Shame on you, Dr Sixsmith, and you a Labour man. (Laughter.)—Dr Sixsmith I protest against this dreadful and scandalous position. We pay no man in our employ less than 27s 6d.—The Chairman Oh, that's wrong 24s 6d is nearer the mark.—Mr Levers Why cant we do our own scavenging, and purchase horses aand harness for the purpose it will pay in the long run.—Dr Sixsmith Hear, hear.—The Chairman You are another Rip Van Winkle, Dr Sixsmith.—Dr Sixsmith But I never dreamt that such a thing as this was going on. -Mr Manaton: I am strongly j in ffivour of doing our own scavenging, and have been for a long time. I should like to know, however, the cost. The present contract expires in May, and I move that a sub-committee, consist- ing of the Chairman, Mr James Jones, Dr Sixsmith, and Mr Morgan, be appointed to report upon the question.—This was agreed to, and the meeting concluded.
