There Ave re present: Mr Morgan Phillips, Eglwvs- fairacherrig; Mr Peter HoAvells. Mr W, L. Matthias, Mr Dan Richards, Whitland; Mr John Philips, lierilan Mr J. D. Williams, Egremont; Mr Levi Davies, Llanboidy Mr J. C)N-en Llanboidy; Mr T. Davies. Llallglyd- wen amr the Clerk (Mr Hy. Lewis). Sergt. Hanksaud-Mr J. Lewes Philipps. J.P.. a member of the Advisory Committee, represented the Military Authority. ELECTION OF CHAIRMAN. Mr Thomas Da vies was unanimously elected chain-man of the Tribunal. In taking the chair Mr Davies said that he wouid not a crept the position were he not assured that Mr Levi. Davies, the chairman of the Rural District Council, did not feel dis- posed to accept it. PUBLICITY. Mr T. Davies brought forward the question of publicity. He did not think the general public should he admitted. Appellants would not ca.re to detail their person e l circumstances in presence of the public. The objection to the presence of the press representatives was not the same as the objection to the presence of the public. The press representatives would exercise a proper discretion in reporting cases. Mr. D. Davies, in seconding, said that he quite agreed with what the Chairman had .said. He did not think they had a right to exclude the press if they desired. ft was decided unanimously to adopt the oolurse suggested by the chairman. EXEMPTIONS H- ( ON.- EN Mr Peter Howells said that a good many certificates of exemption had been granted by the Military Officer. He would like particu- lars oi these cases in order to know on what principle the officer went. Mr D. Richards said that there should be some recognised standard. The reasons which guided the officer in granting these certificates should be known to the Tribunal. Mr Peter Howells: Can't we reject these exemptions if we like. The Chairman Certainly wc, liavo power to do so. The Tribunal then went through the Est of exemptions granted by the Military Authority a,nd approved of them all. TWO BROTHER TAILORS. Two brothers, aged 34 and 29, carrying c;i a taloring business, appealed for exemption. They said that their business depended en- tirely on credit and they would suffer severe financial loss by the war. The Recruiting Officer how much credit they had given since the 25th Novem- ber, 1915. The Rccu-iuting Officer said that these two appellants caUed at the office in Carmarthen on the '25th November and they were then told that they had no grounds of appeal. They had given JElCO of credit since then they could not expect that to be taken into account. The Recruiting Officer: Are you aware that there is practically a moratorium for enlisted men. and' that no proceedings be taken against you for delbt whilst you aore in the Army. One of the Appellants It is a queer idea to ask us to join the Army and fight and find when we leave that proceedings for debt can be taken against us. The Recruiting Officer If the firms are any- thing like patriots they will deal the same with you as with three million others. The Tribunal granted one month's post- ponement to one and three months to the other MORE CORN WAXTED, A Lilanfa.ll teg farmer applied for exemption for his labourer. The appellant said that he suffered from rheumatism and he produced a medical certificate showing that he was un- able to do the heavy work of the farm. He had 78 acres..seven of which he ploughed. The Recruiting Officer We'll meet you if you put more land under the plough. Applicant said that lie would plough four more. The Recruiting Officer said that they ought to have six. Applicant agreed to grow more corn and the exemption was granted. A farmer from the Login district supplied for exemption for his son-in-law. Iiiis man had come there and married the applicant's daughter in December. The Chairman: He is a single man under the Act. The Recruiting Officer said that he ought to put in more corn. Applicant said that he had 77 acres, 12 of corn and 10 of hay. Applicant agreed to do so, and the Tribunal agreed to grant him absolute exemption for -igrc his son-in-law. Mr Dan Richards Suppose these farmers don't put in the extra (,orn The Recruiting Officer Then the certificates of exemption will be withdrawn. A TAILOR AND HIS STOCK. A tailor (aged 24) applied for exemption. He said that serious hardship would ensue if lie joined the Army. The Recruiting Officer: Who is dependent on you? Appellant: Nobody. What do you mean by saying that serious hardship would ensue if you joined the Army? —I have a good deal of stock in hand. How much?— £ 100 more or less. What do you mean by zClOO more or less- t50 or £ 60?—About £ 90. How much would you have left if you carried out all the orders you have in hand:- -I cannot say. Suppose it takes 6.} yards of cloth to make a suit and your cloth is worth 4s a yard, how much will you have left after making all the suits you have orders for?—You can't get cloth at 4s a yard. The Recruiting Officer: Then you have less yards for your £ 90. You are weakening your case. Two months postponement granted. ABSOLi IE EXEMPTION FOR GROCER. A grocer (aged 26) applie.d for exemption. He had built up a business on borrowed money and if he had to abandon it there would be serious risk to the creditor who had lent him the ca.oital. The Military Officer did not object, and the Tribunal granted absolute exemption. PERSONAL REASONS. A bank clerk (aged 21) atpplied for exemp- tion. His mother was an invalid. The Recruiting: Officer: Has the bank ap- pealed that you should be exempt ? Applicant: No. It transpired that although the appellant's home was in Whitland lie lived in another dis- trict. He had frequently to visit his mother to assist her in the management of her affairs. Mr D. Davies said that Mr Asquith had emphasised the fact that consideration should be given to the widows only son. The Recruiting Officer: that referred to cases in which the widow was financially de- pendent on her son. Two months extension was granted. MILK CO. EMPLOYEE EXEMPTED. An appeal was maùe. by a dairy firm for exemption of an employee who assisted in the business. The man was aged 27. They con- tended that this was a "reserved occupation. The Recruiting Officer What is the reserved occupation ? Applicant: He is manager of a. business. The Relieving Officer: The managers of all businesses are not in "reserved occupations." Total exemption was granted. EXEMPTION FOR A TANNER. A tanner applied for exemption for his fore-

i Whitland Rural District Council
i- —— Whitland Rural District Council. The monthly meeting oftlie Whitland Rural District Council was hold at the Hotel Gros- venor on Friday the 3rd inst. There were present: Mr Levi Davies (chairman); Mr P. W. W atkins and Mr Peter Howell, Llangan Mr James Howells. Henllanamgoed; Mr D. L. Phillips, Eglwyscymmyn; Mr D. Davies and Mr H. Morris.

Matthias. Pendine; Mr J. Owen. Llanboidy --together with the Clerk (Mr Hy. Lewis); the Surveyor (Mr Rees Davies); the Sanitary Inspector (Mr D. Jenk-iiis). CONDOLENCE. I The Chaicman said that they had all heard with deep regret of the death of the eldest son of Mr Rees Davies, the Surveyor. The death was very sudden and unexpected and it came as a great shock to them. He was sure that Mr Davies felt it more than if his son died on the field of battle, to which he was on his way. The mo-tiou was carried unanimously, the members and all in the room rising to their feet in respectful silence. THE PRICE OF TEAM LABOUR. Mr James Howells said that he had at the iast meeting brought forward the case of one of th? contractors who was not willing to do team labour at the present price. He had been speaking to the man at the last meeting. The man said that on no account was he will- ihu: to send hs horses to the quarry for less than 7s 6d a day. It was all collar work there" were throe or four men filling the cart and there was no time for the horses to rest. The contractor said that he would require an advance and that he would not do the work for ÚS 6d. Mr Wm. Thomas said that the present price was Os. The Surveyor said that Mr James Williams would not do it for less than 7s 6d. There v/orc not many James Williamses to be had. He was a good man, and had a good cart and a good horse. The Chairman asked if they could not get the quarry work done by tender. The Surveyor said that they could not very well it was included in the 'estimate. This was the only He limped that they would not go advancing all round, or the estimate would be all wrong. Mr I). Davies This is an exceptional case. Mr W. Thomas: When others hear, they will all want it. Mr J. Ovren: His complaint is that this is a very hard piece of work. The Survevor: He complains also of the high price of oats. It was decided to leave it open for a month.
ALLEGED NUISANCE FROM FACTORY
ALLEGED NUISANCE FROM FACTORY. The Local Government Board wrote en- closing n letter which they had had from Mr George Howells. Snowdrop Cottage. Whitland. The letter which was read complained of the "intolerable grievance" caused by the "obnixicus sulphuric acid gas" from Messrs Cox's butter and milk factory at Whitland. Tho writer alloged that the middle-aged womwi in the ueighbourhing houses were nearly worn to death by the nuisance. The Medical Officer said that he lived near the factory himseJt, and so 4id 4be- Sanitary Inspector. a The Sanitary Inspector said that this was not a case of a factory such as they had in big towns. They only boiled enough water to wash the churns. He lived quite close to it. Mr D. Davies: And you are very much alive now. A letter was read from the Local Govern- ment Board stating the terms on which the Med ieal Officers of Health should be released for Army service. Dr Owen said that there had been a meet- ing of the Medical War Committee for South West Wales to discuss the position and that meeting informed him that lie could not be spared. This was decided apart from his public appointment. The appointment was a very small part of his work. His salary amounted to £ 24 a year, and he did not live on that. THE NEW REFUSE DEPOSIT. A letter was read from Mr T. Williams giv- ing the Council notice to quit the field which they used as a rubbish deposit. Tlie Clerk said that Mr Williams had already given them notice to quit expiring on the 25th March. This notice was to expire on the 29th September. Mr Williams gave this because he had some doubt as to the legality of the first notice. The Surveyor said that he had made a road to the new field which the Council had taken for the purpose. There was a good deal of ashes in the other field, but he was sorry to tell themtliat Mr Williams had taken all the ashes away. The- Clerk said that Mr D. Evans. Manor— daf. had informed him that tae use of the new field as a rubbish depot would be a great nuisance to the Council School. a.nd if it were used for that purpose strong steps would be taken. The Chairman asked the iMedical Officer for his opinion on the subject. Dr Owen 1 do not think it will be a nuisance at-all. Mr William Thomas: Is ther any regula- tions as to the distance which this should be from a building? The Sanitary Inspector As far as my know- ledge goes, it. will not be a nuisance. There is a bid hedge there and it is 400 or 500 yards. away. I do not think they can even see it. The Clerk The point is whether they can smell it. Mr Peter Howells aid that they had every thing ready, and they ought to give up the present field on the 25th March. Possibly .Sir Williams wanted this stuff all the summer Why should they give him the privelege of hav ing this stuff all the summer The Sanitary Inspector: We want to go to Waunfilbert and we are on the road there this time. We ought to settle this question once for all. The of Whitland is not going to stop to-day or fifty years hence. I' It was decided to proceed with the work at Waunfilbert field.
Why You are Wearing Yourself Oat
Why You are Wearing Yourself Oat All our life through, wo are all wearing our- selves out—using up the substance of our bodies! Hard, laborious toil wastes us away quickly, but every expenditure of energy, every movement, 'every thought, causes some wastage; and this wastage should be repaired by our daily food, but that is only possible when it is well digested. Think, then, of the importance of keeping your digestive organs in good working order, especially in these days when we are called upon to give the most that is in us. If for any reason your organs of digestion, the stomach, liver and bowels, fail to perform their functions perfectly, there is no remedy that will so soon restore them to health and vigour as Mother Seigel's Sylup. As a stomachic remedy and liver corrective, it would be difficult to' find its equal.
