lI Rheumatism and Kidney Trouble i
"l Rheumatism and Kidney Trouble, FREE TREATMENT. Rheumatism is due to uric acid crystals in the joints and muscles, the result of excessive uric acid in the system that the kidneys failed to re- move as nature intended, to which every qualified physician agrees, and this add is also the cause of backache, lumbago, sciatica, gout, urinary trouble, stone, gravel, dropsy. The suocesas of Estora Tablets for the treatment of rheumatism ajid other forms of kidney trouble is due to the fact that they restore the kidneys to healthy action and thereby remove the cause of the trouble, and have cured numberless cases after the failure of other remedies, which accounts for them fast superseding out-of-date medicines that are Bold at a price beyond all but the wealthy. To prove Esitora Tablets fully warrant their de- scription—an honest remedy at an honest price— one full box of 40 tablets will be sent to readers of the "Brecon and Radnor Express" as a free sample on receipt of this notice and 3d in stamps to cover postage, packing, etc. Sold by chemists, 1/3 per box of 40 tablets, or six boxes for 6/9.

Builth County Court I
Builth County Court. I INTERESTING CASES. Before His Honour, Judge Wm. Evans, at Builth Wells County Court on Thursday, the Caledonian Insurance Company sued Mr F. D. B. George, of Broad Street, Builth, for £ 2, mon- ies due to them. Plaintiffs were represented by Mr Jones-Wil- liams (solicitor, Brecon). Defendant said he only earned 13/9 per week as an auxiliary postman. He would try and pay 10/- per month. His Honour made an order for 10/- per month, and advised defendant to endeavour to pay. Defendant I hope to get some additional work now and have every prospect of being ruble to pay the debt. Dental Services. Mr J. M. Brookes, dentist, Brecon, claimed ze2 5s. from P. Rees, formerly of Builth, for den- tal services. Mr Jones-Williams (Brecon) appeared for plain- tiff and submitted particulars of the debt. Miss Mary Morris, dentist's assistant, proved the claim. His Honour awarded plaintiff judgment for the whole amount. Rent Dispute. I Mr Wm. Moore, Waterloo, Bettws-Dissertb, Hundred House, sued Mrs Mason, Llenelwedd, Builth, for £18 rent in respect to Upper Gilwern, .Which was let to her at £28 per annum. Defend- ant had paid £ 10, and the amount claimed was still due. Since the institution of proceedings defendant had paid X16 into court. Mrs Mason contended the holding had, for part of the time, been occupied by a man named Lay- ton, whom, she said, came to her for the key. Layton denied liability, observing he only acted in the capacity of care-taker. Mrs Mason Layton told me Mr Moore sent him for the key. Mrs Mason claimed R6 10s from Layton for the term she contended Upper Gilwern had been sub- let by Mr Moore to Layton. His Honour The action against Layton must go, and iwliat Mrs Mason has paid into court will meet the case.
LLOYDS BANK. MR R. Y. YASSAR-SMITH'S REYIEW. STABILITY OF BRITISH FINANCE. At the annual meeting at Birmingham, on the 2nd inst., of Lloyds Bank, Ltd., a profit of £ 1.259,190 was reported, and the directors re- commended a dividend at. the rate of 181 per cent., leaving tlO6,969 to be carried forward. The chairman (Mr R. V. Vassar-Smith) said the finacial precautions and remedial measures taken to meet the difficulties created by the war had proved of great value. Of the bills dis- counted by the Bank of England for the relief of cite accepting houses the amount of 300 millions had been reduced to about 50 millions; the pre- moratorium loans to the Stock Exchange had been to a large extent repaid; many of the minimum prices had been removed; the assist- ance given to the exporting houses had been satisfactory; and the more general use of cur- rency notes had contributed to the maintenance of the reserves of gold. The gold reserves at the Bank were ample, but less than usual, as it had been thought incumbent to keep more with the Bank of England, this strengthening the national reserve, and carrying out the principle that the va lue of gold lay in its being prudently in use and not in being hoarded. Advances to custom- ers were £ 4,430.764 less, due not to any curtail- ment of facilities, but to. prosperity, over-drawn balances being much reduced or converted into credit balances. Home Trades. I With regard to the home trade, reports from all quarters told of the great prosperity of ag- riculture. Colliery owners had suffered much owing to shortage of labour, and the output show- ed a reduction, 'but, generally speaking, results were satisfactory. The iron and steel trades bad done well, and 'the present prices of iron were the highest for nearly 40 years. Notwithstand- ing all drawbacks, our exports had been as high as 385 millions, a higher figure than the value of our exports in 1909, but, of course, much less than in more recent years. Our imports had been very large, the value being 854 millions, and, in- cluding Government stores, the total had been not 'far short of 1,000 millions sterling. The difference between these values was alarming. It was the cause of the difficulty of exchange, and pointed to the necessity of reducing, as far as possible, the unnecessary imports. He claimed that,, with many of their financial theories brok- en down, bankers had successfully met the daily changing course of events, and, in spite of ad- verse exchange conditions, our banks had up- held the credit of the country. Questions affect- ing the financial, commercial and economic posi- tion aifter the war were receiving serious atten- tion, and when the desired 'time came we should not be found unprepared. The connection be- tween finance and industry would have to be con- sidered, and he hoped that wiser and more toler- ant views might be taken of the connection be- tween capital and labour. Mr J. W. Beaumont Pease, in seconding the motion, said that the modern joint stock bank gave greater facilities than those afforded by the smailler banks which they had absorbed, and whereas in seven years, when we were fighting for- our existence in the Napoleonic wars, the bank failures averaged two a 'week, there bad been no failure since the present war commenced, except that of a small bank which was insolvent years before. The report was adopted, and the dividend, as recommended by the directors, was declared.
Last Man to LeaveI
Last Man to Leave. I SENNYBRIDGE BOY IN GALLIPOLI. I Dr. W. R. Thomas, late of Tylorstown, son of Mr Edward Thomas, Bailea, Sennybridge, Breconshire, writes an interesting letter about 'lis adventures on the Gallipoli Peninsula. The letter reads :—"The week before the evacuation we had 15 officers (medical) as reinforcements, and before the week was out one had been killed, one seriously wounded, and three seriously ill. During the last night of the evacuation my hos- pital had to provide 'four officers and 30 men to deal with and bring off the wounded during and after .the departure of the last troops. I was put in charge of this party, and I can tell you we had a lively time, as during the last two hours we had nobody between us and the Turks. After we had got all our wounded and men into a 'barge, I had 3 dead and 10 wounded from some terrific shell explosions. This was while we were on the boat waiting to clear off. I can truthfully say that I was the last man off the Peninsula. We got away at ten past four on the morning of January 9th. We then tried to get alongside a hospital ship, but it was so stormy that we failed, and the barge nearly upset. We had all taken our kits off, expecting to have to siwim for it—which was rather awkward, con- sidering that we had a lot of wounded. A naval officer gave our coxswain orders to go back to the shelter of the beach, but, fortunately, while we were on the way, a large steam tug came up in the dark and towed us to Imbros, 10 miles away. We were in the open boat for 12 hours without food, and I had to take the reserve rations of my men to feed the wounded—or such of them as were not too sea-sick. We had no blankets, every man of us was caked in mud and sea water, and we were jolly glad to get to a ship. We slept in hospital for a few nights and are, most of us, fairly fit again. One of my duties was to bring off a Union Jack, and I had it tied round my waist for 16 hours. Two nights before the eva- cuation, the Turks, thinking that was the final night, put 500 shells on to the beach. I am pleased to tell you I have just been promoted j from lieutenant to captain."

War and Politics 1
War and Politics. 1 The sixth session of the present Parliameait was opened on Tuesday. As predicted the most lively debate on the Address was directed to the subject of precautions against air raids. Such questions as the divided control of our anti-air service, the steps taken for reducing the lighting of various areas, or the policy of is- suing no warning to the public of the approach of zeppelins, are open to legitimate criticism. It is a very different matter with the sensational cam- paign in the Press which seeks, by creating a panic, to force the Government into an enor- mous scheme of buliding against zeppelins. The only result of any value which the enemy could hope to achieve through their air-raids on this country is to set up a panic and thus excite a de- mand either for the withdrawal of many of our aircraft from the front, where they are doing most effective military work, or for the diversion of our means of production to the building of a huge additional air-fleet instead of piling up the munitions by which alone we can bring the war to a successful conclusion. I British sympathy has gone out in amplest 1 measure to our kinsmen in Canada, over the de- struction of the Canadian Parliament House at Ottawa. The suspicion that the disaster may have been caused by an act of German incendiar- ism was increased when another fire broke out shortly afterwards in a Canadian munitions fac- tory. However this may be the documents seized on Captain von Papen, a selection from which has been published in a Parliamentary White Paper, reveal payments made by the ex- Military Attache at Washington to the man who was arrested for attempting to blow up (fifteen days after the date of von Pa.pen's cheque) the bridge crossing the frontier river between the United States and Canada, and to the head of the police service of the Hamburg-Amerika line, who is charged with conspiring to destroy the Welland canal. A payment to the German Consulate at Seattle was followed three weeks later by a dynamite explosion in Seattle harbour. We know from the German War Book tha't the policy of en- couraging and subsidising criminal acts is quite in accordance with the German Imperial Staff's conception of the way in which civilised warfare should be conducted. There are many other points of interest in the von Papen correspondence. Before the Austrian time-limit to Serbia had expired, a letter was sent to Captain von Papen, from Potsdam, telling him that Serbia "had not accepted" Austria's ultimatum. A postscript to the same letter added that "we have never before seen such prepara- tions for war as are being made at present." This was written a whole week before Germany declared war on .Russia, and fire days before the German Foreign Secretary assured our Ambas- sador that "beyond the recall of officers on leave the Imperial Government had done noth- ing special in the way of military preparations. America will be interested to learn that Captain von Papen, who in a letter to his wife last Aug- ust referred to "these' idiotic Yankees," had a, "hyphenate" correspondent last December who spoke of "the extraordinarily idiotic Yankee an- tagonism" to Germany's peculiar war-ethics. In view of the attacks made in the "Morning Post" on our Government for its supposed negligence in allowing German reservists to return to Ger- many, it should be noticed that in December, 1915, a German in New York was writing that "scarcely one per cent. have had luck with their attempts: the British search every corner of every ship. On March 1st the group system for the volun- tary enlistment df unmarried men comes to an t nd, and the era of compulsion will begin on the following day. We must fervently hope that the number of men who still remain outside will all have come in before that date. It is satisfac- tory to find that the Military Service Act, now it is on the Statute Book, has been generally ac- cepted by 'the community as an accomplished fact which is no longer open to controversy. The one ground 'for anxiety was removed when the Lab- our Conference decided that Labour should re- fuse to support an agitation for the Act's repeal. The result was, to a very great extent, secured by the 'tact with which the Prime Minister and Mr Bonar Law 'handled a delicate situation, and their evidently genuine desire to remove the ap- prehensions of Labour that the Bill might be used as an instrument to open the door for in- dustrial compulsion. 3k The Government policy of economising the available shipping tonnage by restriction of im- ports has now received a further application. The Royal Commission on the Sugar Supply has an- nounced that it will be necessary during the com- ing months to restrict the importation of sugar within narrower limits. Though the price of sugar since the beginning of the war has 'never been less than 50 per cent. a-bove normal, and is now practically double, there has been no con- 1 'erable reduction in the amount consumed. i 1 ere is an obvious necessity for war economy in the use of such articks as jam, biscuits, sweet- meats and chocolalte. If due care is exercised and individual consumption reduced within rea- sonable limits, the contemplated restriction of sugar imports should not cause a shortage of ade- quate supplies, or afford any ground for an in- crease in price. General Polivanoff, the Russian Minister for War, in an interview with the correspondent of the Paris "Journal," speaks in the most hopeful terms of the future. The munition crisis, which began to grow acute a year ago, and was the cause of the Russian retirement before the Ger- man Armies, has now been completely mastered. As the war goes on, the forces of the Allies in- crease, and those of the Central Powers diminish "Behind the four Allies are the natural re- sources of the entire world. Behind the arm- ies of the Central Powers the soil is being ex- hausted. There is only one word to express certainty of final success, and that is, 'the war continues.' Not only the Liberal Party, but the whole nation, has suffered a loss in the death of Mr Russell Rea, who has fallen a victim to the pressure of the heavy and extremely important duties which lie discharged, in addition to his nor- mal Parliamentary work, as a member of the Rubber Exports Committee and chairman of the Coal Exports Committee. Mr Russell Rea's great economic knowledge and wide experience of industry and shipping had proved invalauble in those industrial and economic problems of a novel and intricate character to which the war gave rise. His name, too, will always be associated with the legislation which gave us the Miners' Eight Hours Act and a unified Port of London Authority. As chairman of the Liberal Publi- cation Department, his admirable judgment, ripe political wisdom, and fine literary sense were of the greatest service to his party, and he was dis- tinguished 'by a charm of personality which en- deared him to all who knew him.
IA Thoughtful Employer
I A Thoughtful Employer The consideration which Sir Frank Bowden shows for those in his employ has been frequent- ly demonstrated, but the latest development at the great Raleigh works at Nottingham is an in- stance ctf practical consideration which might be copied with advantage in many quarters.. The cycling baronet had noticed that, after a spell of bad weather, colds were frequent amongst his staff. He enquired into the cause, and found that it was largely due to a very simple cause. Clerks, who arrived wet in the morning, had eith- er to sit at their desks in damp clothes, or don wet clothes for their homeward journey. He called to his aid the leading firm of steam- heating specialists, who have designed and built a "drying-room" for the clothes of the staff on wet days. In this room clothes are hung and dried by steam-heat while the staff is at work. Arrangements have been made for the members of the staff to keep spare clothing at the offices, which can be used while the wet things are dry- ing. As an instance of an employer's thought- fulness for his people, this will certainly be wide- ly commended, and, it is to be hoped, emulated, and hundreds and thousands of riders of the all- steel bicycle will hear with interest of such pro- vision made for the comfort of the large staff con- nected with it. <

POULTRY. I BREEDING TIME. Those who have not started breeding before this should see about it at once. Nearly everyone knows that the March and April chickens are best—in fact, this seems to be II)e first thought of the novice. Certainly, birds hatched in April ought to 'begin to lay about October and keep right on through the winter. Yet every fowl cannot be hatched then. Most breeders raise as many chickens as their space allows, and it would be an impossibility to have them all hatched in April. Consequently, this must be spread over a longer period, which means starting early and keeping on late. I never favour very late chickens, though, of course, just now are excep- tional times, and we should all produce as many chickens as our ground allows, no matter early or late, because what do not come in for laying will make food, and this is a most important :Iteiii. To raise the number required to stock the place, it may be necessary to begin early and ex- tend the time, and, those who ha I'e not yet start- ed, are already behind and have lost much valu- able time. There are thousands of chickens out ) all over the country, and the mild weather has j done them well and, though we may get a sharp spell later, these birds will be well on with i their feathering before the March winds arrive. As stated so many tunes before, it is not so much the cold as wet-nd damp ground that is to be feared. Unless chickens can be kept in a dry I¡ hoouse or coop, they will soon go o

I REGIMENTALALL LEAGUE i
< I REGIMENTAL'ALL LEAGUE. BlvYXMAWK v. CEFN-COED. This match was played on the Soldier's Gymk- hana Ground on Monday 17/1/16. "G's" luck has at last turned, their winning star was certainly in the ascendant on this occasion. Sorry to relate "B'R" luck was dea.d out. The game opened very evenly, Cooke was tested with a shot from Thomas but cleared. "G'g" forwards opened up an at- tack but Williams and Jenkins were very safe. J The game had been in existence some 38 minutes when D. M. Thomas sent in a centre, all Cottrell had to do' wa.s to touch it in. I think if Parry had liked to have exerted himself he could have saved. Just before half time the same player sent in a ground shot which also found the net. Aldridge had very hard lines in not scoring, the goalie fumbling the ball, recovered in the nick of j time a.nd cleared. Half-time: "G" 2 goals: "B" nil. j The second half was not so fast as the preced- ing half. Early on Ldewellyn had the misfortune j to see his shot go just a little wide. Shortly aifter- wards Edwards robbed Aldridge of a certain goal j by getting offside. From a scramble a yard out of goal Lydford netted the third goal. Another run by "B" came to nought, through Fowler lying I off-side. D. M. Thomas next got down on the 1 right and swung in a good centre, Evans handling I in the area, J. Powell took the kick and made no j mistake. This was the only good goal of the I match. May I venture to remark that had the j goalie put himself a.bout he could have saved four I of the goals. Shortly before the whistle went j Cottrell scored the fifth and last goal of the match. jI Teams.—Cefn-Coed Goal, Cooke; 'backs, Bet- terton and J. Powell; halves, Price, O. C.

Taylor won the toss and de- cided to play with his back to the sun. J. L. J. Williams kicked off, a pass between Davies and Main and back to the former who scored with a high shot. The game was very fast, the ball travelling ifrom goal to goal with great rapidity. 'I' There was no further score in this half. "H" ) missed several chances when well placed. I Half-time: "E" Company 1 goal-, "H" nil. The second half opened with "H" pressing. This was kept up for some time, R. Price and Smith getting in a tremendous amount of work. James only a. couple of yards away from goal and ) when well placed missed his kick, putting wide of the post. A minute or two from time Miller and t Mason failing to clear, the ball going to Steer who put in a cross shot between the backs, completely deceiving the goalie, who thought it was going behind. Full-time score: "E" Company 2 goals; "H", Company nil. Teams.—Builth: Goal, O. T. Evans; backs, jI R. Price and S. Smith: halves, Davies. T. S. Evans' and Lee; forwards, Street, H. Davies, J. L. J.

Major C. Green. I BRYNMAWR v. YSTRADGYNLAIS. This return league match was played on the Soldiers' Gymkhana Ground on the 21,1111 Teams.—"H" Company: Goal. A. Davies;! backs, Miller and James; halves. Fanner, Taylor, and Jennings; forwards, Ratcliffe, Rees, Bevan, D. W. Davies, Hy. Edwards. "B" Company: GoaJ, Fowler; backs, Jenkins and Williams (Buller); halves, E. Prosser, D. J. I Davies and A. Prosser; forwards, Edwards (Tweedle'um), Thomas, Aldridge, Llewellyn and Bennett. Referee Sergt.-Major C. Green. The previous match ended in a draw of no goals. It was expected that "H" would improve, their goal average on this occasion, and it looked as though this wish was goin, to be fulfilled. Both teams have improved immensely since the com- itien,cement of the season, considering the num- bers who understand or participate in the soccer game in these companies, their performances are very creditable. "B" are very unfortunate in not being able to get hold of a safe goalie, otherwise their team is not at all a bad one, they are. full of grit and are firm believers in pegging away until the whistle sounds. Aldridge makes a good skip- per and keeps his men well in hand. "H" Com- pany, coming from theSwansea Valley, knew more of the game than their opponents, when they came out they brought some very promising jun- iors in their ranks. A. Davies, an old exponent of the Rugby code, makes an excellent goalie, very quick and fairly safe. Bevan is a good centre, but usually forgets that he has some good wing j men in Ratcliffe and Edwards. Taylor's handR | are always pretty full in handling his eleven. I himself quite a good handworking hall', who never seems to tire. The first half was hotly contested, I both goals having very narrow escapes. Bevan got in a run and easily beat Fowler, who seemed ¡ afraid to handle. The same player receiving from Dixie Davies, scored another easy goal. and just j before half-time Bevan registered the third goal. the ball glancing off the goalie into the net. I Half-time "H" 3 goals; "B" nil. The second half was easilv B's", who pressed continually. Davies playing a good game in goal kept them out for some time. Bennett swung the II ball well forward, Aldridge and Thomas raced for the leather, the latter getting it before Davies could gather and clear. Another goal came short- ly after, much the same as the preceding one, the ball coming from the left Aldridge scoring from a mix-up in the goal-mouth. Final score "H" Company 3 goals: "B" Com- pany 2 goals. I
