Llanbadarn Moves. ACTIVITY FOR FOOD PRODUCTION. At Llanbadarn on Wednesday evening a very representative meeting was held for, the extension of the food production move- ment. A letter was received from the Rev. D. Jones, vicar, regretting owing to illness that he was unable to preside. He was in full sympathy with the meeting and would be prepared to lend all the assistiance in his power. In the unavoidable absence of the -Vicar, Mr R. T. Greer, C.S.I., was voted to the chair. Mr. R. G. Sta pledon opened the dis- cussion by briefly nutting before the meet- ing Mr. Protheto'r, proposals and empha- sizing in particular the need of farmers extending the acreage in corn and potatoes and pointed out that if each farmer did so only to the extent of one or two acres it would -amount to a considerable quan- tity. Mr. Stapledon also urged farmers to avail themselves of women and casual labour adding that Mr. Prothero had said th-at no matter how many women farmers employed this season it would not jeopar- dise them with the recruiting authorities. He also urged all cottagers to cultivate their gardens to the utmost -and the need of co-operation between farmers and cot- tagers with regard to cultivation of allot- ments. Mr. Abel Jones confined his remarks to the importance of pig-keeping and urged the villagers to co-operate in this respect wihli regard to the collection of waste from the various houses, and with regard to poultry he said it was more economic-al for each cottager to keen small number of poultry than for one to keen large number. Mr. David Jenkins, Bryncarnedd, spoke from the farmer's point of view. Mr. J. Ballinger, in a stirring speech, proposed a resolution that the meeting pledge itself to give every support to the Government's new proposals, and he made several practical suggestions. The resolution was seconded by the Rev. Griffith Parry and carried with enthusiasm. At the close of the proceedings the Chairman pointed out that it would be most desirable to take some immediate action, and a strong Committee was formed, with Mr. Greer as chairman and Mr. E-lwy Jones as secretary, to co- operate with the Parish Council and ascer- tain what allotments wcr.-ld be available and required; also Ni-hetliei, co-operative; society could be formed. Mr. Jones kindly consented to obtain the necessary informa- tion as to the quantity of seed potatoes required.

Poultry. ) CHICKEN HATCHING. 1 The rearing and selling of day-old chickens is one of the most profitable branrhes of poultry farjning. It is the branch that takes up, perhaps, the least room, and can be carried out at any pri- vate house. All one wants is the room to stand the incubator in. The work can be carried ion profitably on a large or small scale. Fanciers who have their own hens can h-at-ch their own eggs, but in- cubating can be done by the fancier who keeps no birds at all. All he has to do is to make arrangements with some reliable poultry farmer to supply him with eggs regularly. The poultry farmer can be found by advertising in the local news- papers, or one of the poultry papers. We recommend eggs from pure-bred birds, and we think a visit to the farm where eggs are produced is always advisable. Now is the time that the incubators should be got ready or even started with eggs from heavy breeds. If your incuba- tor has been used before take care in hav- ing it thoroughly washed both inside and out, usino- some good disinfectant. Incuba- tors that have been used for a season usually contain germs which are very detrimental to the hatching of chickens. I always go over my machines at this time of the year and wash tIiem, putting about two wineglassfuls of "Jeyes' Fluid" in about one gallon of water. Incubators should be run for at least four days before being filled with eggs to make certain that the capsule is working properly. I do not recommend incubators of less than 100 egg capacity, a big machine takes no more looking after than a small one. Light Sussex. If I were -asked what is the most popular breed to-day I should say the Light Sussex, because it sells better than anvthing else, makes more money and can he used both as an egg producer and also for t-ble. chicken. Those who have followed the markets will have noticed that under the hammer single birds have made un to Plt each, while scores have been sold privately at £ 10 each and a little under, "ind all this happening in war time. "While counting these things it must be remembered that fancy birds "ire not makin.o- so much money as whfen there are a lot of shows going, because one cannot get them out to see what they will win. so that if any fowl is being turned over like this you can rest assured that the variety is popular. When a breed becomes taken up all over the country and good prices are made, it may be just a passing fancy which will soon die away unless the variety is one which can stand the test of time. There are many breeds to-day which came to the front rapidly but because their good qualities did not last' they soon went down -again, but in the case of the Light Sussex, I see no reason why there should be any decline. It will come up to the highest expectations unless ip.omething abnormal is expected, and whether for utility or exhibition there is alwavs something fascinating about the breed. Those who have kept records of. their laving can show numbers equal to any of the Leghorns and the eggs come during the winter when the prices are highest. The breed will do equally well on a crass run or in small house, and when kept intensively the winter egg re- cords beat several of the more cracked up breeds. Although not so quick growing as the Leghorn they soon m-ature and will come on to lay early if the conditions are favourable. Tt is only the oast few years that they have been considered a laying variety, but when trap-nested they have easily beaten the lighter breeds during the six winter months. When pens are being mated for ogff production only discard all thick beaded hens, no matter how good in every othfr respect. "When birds are taken haphazard the results will be as s-atis- factorv as when sr|?"ially selected birds "A taken, and if this is done, do not Mame the brood. There is no variety to- dav which will answer the three purposes co well as this, because a pen can be mated up to show form. with some excellent lavers, and vet every surplus birds can be on the table, and make a good ioint. This then is the fowl for the smallholder, because the one breed does all that is "equired and then properly managed there is always something for sale.
SWYDDFFYNON. WAR SAVINGS ASSOCIATION.—After a deal of strenuous preliminary work on the part of a few persons a war savings association has been started in the district. It was in existence but a fortnight before the end of the financial quarter, but the sum realized reached the respectable total ,f L-294. ft is a significant but deplorable fact chat the subscribers are mostly mem- bers of families who have members at the front. GENEROSITY.—According to their annual custom, the Earl and Countess of Lisburne distributed New Year's gifts in the shape of money to the poor of U the district. Their kindness is greatly appre- ciated TO THE FRONT—Private Rees David Jones. Brynissa, of the Royal Fusiliers, left the homeland for one of the mal y battle fronts on the first day of the new vear. He is the last of the Swyddffynon bovs who joined the Public Schools Bat- talion of the Royal Fusiliers. He was a member of the School vootbill Team whu-h was nt its best in 1906. Ten out of the eleven members, have joined the arm,, six of them in the first year of the war. Three of these boys have already attained com- missioned rank and two more hive been recommended for honour. One boy has been recommended for the military cross. It is greatly to hp feared that three of those gtllant lads have made the great sacrifice.

Agriculture and the Food Problem
) Agriculture and the Food Problem. (By "Simplex.") THE NEED OF ORGANIZATION. j The high prices of food stuffs, at present prevailing in this country, have drawn attention to our dependence on food im- ported. The question asked is, Has the British farmer performed his duty to the nation, and produced as much as oossible from the land at his disposal?" How is it that the British farmer feeds only 40 to 50 nersons per 100 acres while the German farmer feeds 70 to 75? It is evident that the British farmer has not produced the utmost from his soil which is if anything superior to that of the German. But the fault is not altogether the farmers. Whenever the farmer in this country enters the market, whether he realises the fact or not, he immediately comes into com- petition with the foreign or colonial pro- ducer, and is worsted in that competition in nearly every case. The reason for his defeat is not far to seek. Isolated and alone, with little or no organization the British farmer is trying- to compete with I -a body of highly organized men. who have studied the business side of their pro- fession and brought it to a higher pitch of efficiency. They have placed their goods upon the market in sufficient quan- tit- to command their respect and have studied the requirements and fancies of the buyer with all the skill of trained 'salesmen. Is it to be wondered then that the British farmer is taken at a disad- i vantage ? Let the producers of this Country organise themselves and combine together, let them send their goods to the markets which will obtain for them the highest price, not in small quantities but in bulk so -as to reduce the cost of transit, and to command respect in the market j they enter. Let their goods be properly graded and T)acked to suit the require- ments of the buyer. When this is done, and onlv then, will the agriculturists of this country be able to enter the competi- tion of trade at anything but '?. disad- vantage. But how can such organization and combination be achieved? Co-opera- tion would seem to be the only true solu- tion. By the formation of co-operative societies the farmers can buy their require- ments in bulk, and at wholesale prices. They can sell their produce in bulk, hav- ing graded and packed it, where necessary. They can send their produce so bulked to the nvp.rketH, which are productive of good nrices, and, because of the bulking of the goods they can reduce the cost of transit by railway to a figure that will make such transit worth their while, where if each farmer should send his individual poduce sen-aratelv the very cost of transit would not" be defrayed by any increase m price gained by placing the goods in the nrooer market. The formation of a Co-operative Trading Society bv the farmers and its registration under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act makef the farmers members I of the trade. "Wholesale firms will in rnosti cases allow them the percentages and commission on their purchases, which are usually given to agents and traders. The firmer thus gains for himself, and his industry, the profits which in the ordinary course of events would go to the middle- man." Co-operation, therefore, would not "IIlly increase the orofits but would also decrease the cost of the requirements. Co-operation in agriculture is not a mere dream. It is an established fact. In a I few years under the capable guidance of (the Agricultural Organization Society, 550 societies have sprung into existence, with an annual turnover of £ 3,429,000- But what is this comryared with the vast possi- bilities of the agricultural industry in this i country ?

Howell presided at a variety entertain- ment given in aid of the fund for soldiers comforts, of which Mrs. Evans, Ffosffin Cottage, is treasurer, at Penlone School- room, Llwyncelyn, some days ago. The programme was prepared and performed by Miss Longcroft of Llan- ina, and a troupe of young ladies from New Quay who wore fancy dresses and hoods. There was ?. satisfactory financial result.

LLANAFAN. The War Savings Association is progress- ing very favourably, and the members are doing all possible help to make the Asso-j ciation more successful. Subscriptions are; coming in regularly and certificates are bought weekly. If savings and investment is going to win the war tho LInafn i people are not going to lag behind in this :rt struggle. The young men from the neighbourhood are going or gone to fight. for their country and those who are too old for active service are doina: what they can at home, and one successful way is in saving and depositing same at once in buying war certificates. The best goods ate advertised goods.

I carried out his directions for some time, but finding I was not improving, I commenced to use remedies recommended by friends, but those also proved to be failures. "At one of the local Infirmaries I was told to persevere with starch poultices. I did so for a long time, but like all the other things it did me no good. I suffered so much from pain and irritation I could hardly work." "As a last hope, I purchased a box of Zam-Buk, and the result was really amazing. After applying the balm, the pain and heat vanished, and the eruptions on my hands rapidly passed away. Within a few days Zam-Buk had perfectly cured me, and I was able to go about my work as I had not done for almost a year." FOR COLD IN THE HEAD, rub some Zam-Buk between the hands and breathe in the medicinal odours from the evaporating balm. This loosens the stuffiness in the nose, clears the head, and relieves the dull, heavy feeling. Rubbing Zam-Buk over the forehead and up the nostrils is very beneficial.
