ASSISTING A DESERTER I
ASSISTING A DESERTER I At Aberavon on Thursday, James Whelan, of Charlotte-street, Aberavon, was charged with assisting his brother, Wm. Whelan, to avoid detection after de- serting from his rogiraent, Royal Irish liifi^s. McGovern stated that Whelan joined in the name of Dumphy, and de- serted about the end of August. At de- fendant's house witness found a full soldier's kit; including a rifle and bayo- net. Defendant's brother had been on 7 days' leave from the front.

WHAT SWANSEA CANI I SAVEI
WHAT SWANSEA CAN I SAVE «» READJUSTMENT OF THE SINKING FUND MEANS 11,700 ANNUITIES TO FREEMEN A meeting of the Swansea 1 iixanco Compiittee was held on.Thursday, Mr H. Macdonnell presiding. The Borough Treasurer (Mr. W. H. Ashmole) pointed out that, having made a readjustment of the Sinking Fund with the Local Government Board, a saving of 91,701) per annum would be effected. The annual instalments, he explained, were calculated on the assumption that they wojuld accumulate only at 3 per cent., and he suggested they now recalculate the annual instalments on the assump- tion they will accumulate at ;g per cent. Mr. Ashmole further reported that he had renewed two loans since the last meeting. A number of mortgagees had given him notice to terminate loans, and in many cases an exorbitant rate of in- terest had been asked lor renewal. He had offered them a reasonable interest to I, start immediately, and in a number of cases this little inducement had led to a renewal. Annuities to Freemen. The Monthly Cash Paper contained ac- counts of eleven sums, amounting in each case to £ 10, for one year's annuity to senior burgesses. Mr. Devonald asked what they meant. Mr. Aslimole said these annual pay- ments to Freemen must continue until all the Freemen on the roll at the date of the last Swansea Corporation Act ceased to exist. Referring to the resolution passed at the last Council meeting with reference to the estimates, he said he did not see any good purpose could be served by calling tjie committee together again on that subject. Mr. Holmes said they had dealt with the estimates as fully as they could, and he did not see that they could do any mora. Reconsidering the Estimates, Mr. Powlesland said th0 resolution had been passed by the Council, and lie thought they should carry it out. There had been a lot of indefinitness about eome of the committers, and he thought they might get something definite. Mr. Ashmolo said it was right to have the resolution of the Council carried out, but it was no use to call a meeting which was a farce. Mr. Powlesland: We decided at the Council meeting that all the departments should reconsider the estimates. Mr. Ashmole: I do not see the use of calling a meeting if the chairmen of the committees cannot come. Mr. Devonald said they had made a reduction on the lighting, so they did do some good. Mr. Ashmole: That has been taken into account. It was decided to call a meeting of the chairman of the committees and the FinaDCe Committee next Monday.

HOUSE LET WITHOUT CERTIFICATE I
HOUSE LET WITHOUT CERTIFICATE I At the Aberavon Borough Police Count 0'1 Thursday, an interesting case came on for hearing. in which Thomas Hussell, builder and contractor. Port Talbot, was summoned f.or allowing the occupation of throe dwelling-houses in New-rtreet. Aberavon, without obtaining certificates of completion from the local Council official. Mr. Lewis M. Thomas appeared for the Corporation, and Mr. Dan Perkins de- fended. Mr. Thomas explained that the houses had been let and occupied by tenants before a certificate bad been given, which was a contraventi-on of the bye-laws and a special resolution of tli- Council. Mr. J. Roderick (borough surveyor) gave evidence of the facts. By Mr. Perkins: One of the complaints wai that a window would not open. T}u' completion would have only cost a few shillings. The Bench held that a technical offence had been committed, and ordered defen- dant to pay costs.
NEW TRANSCANADIAN RAILWAY I
NEW TRANS-CANADIAN RAILWAY, I Parliamentary Ten-Day Trip. I At the invitation of the directors, a i •party, numbering 140, including the Senators and Members of the Dominion I Parliament, commenced a trip across Canada on Tuesday formally to inaugurate the completion of the Canadian Northern Railway from Atlantic to Pacific. Separate I trains started from Quebec, Montreal, and Toronto, and were consolidated into one train, including sleepers and dining cars. Tho complete journey will extend over ten da vs. This trip, unique in the history of Canada, will give Parliamentary members and others who participate in it an oppor- tunity personally to see the character of the country through which the railway runs, the standard of its construction, as well as the immense new fields in agricul- ture and general industry which it is open- ing up. The line from Quebec to the Pacific Ocean is about 3.000 miles in length, and with one exception, of less than ten miles, has a maximum grade of half of one per cent., while the srainn is fed by about fi,Oa miles of contributory lines and branches.

18 OUT OF 700 I
18 OUT OF 700 I ——— ——— t CARMARTHEN TEACHERS WHO HAVE I, ANSWERED THE CALL A WAR SONUS REFUSED A WAR BONUS REFUSED I The Carmarthenshire Education Authority, at a meeting held in Carmar- then on Thursday, Mr. W. X. Jones in the chair, refused to entertain the ele- mentary sc hool teachers" application for a war bonus of ?10 a year. I. Mr. John Lloyd (Ai-,erzwili), said they heard othciaiiy at ine last meeting thati the maximum of the now scale of cala-r?es } recently granted would mean an exper, i- ture of ?,000 a year more than under ?110 old scale. That meant a rate of 2d. or! more in the 9, so that the scale of saiaries; prevailing in the county for elementacy l: ?cu'x'Lma?ters compared very iavourably III with the scales of other counties in Wal. Tho maximum for assistant masters, ?f tlicy took the superannuation premium the committee paid for 'them into con- sideration, amounted practically to ?135 a year, while the maximum for teacher II in their bigger schools amounted to 2225 I a year. It seemed to him ridiculous to II suggest a war bonus to people drawing salaries varying from £135 to i225 per annum. It seemed rather unfair that one section of the community drawing taxable incomes should be relieved of their obliga- tions to their country at the expense of the other 6octiori by drawing a war bonus, We had all got to sacrifice at the present tiina. Response to the Call. 1, They had 18 teachers in the county who I; had nobly responded to the call of their country and joined tho forces. He did I not know whether that was a very great record when they remembered that they I, had 700 teachers in the county. The enlist- ment worked out at a little less than 3 per cent. They bad a large number of I eligible young men of military age and ability remaining. It was to be hoped that this record would be greatly im- proved upon in the near future. Theyj knew of the action of thousands of young men in various walks of life who had given up their educational and profes- sional training and career and sacrificed everything for the eake of their country. Fie did not think this was an opportune time for any class of people to ask for a war bonus. He moved that tho committee- take no steps in the matter, and this was. carried.
WELSH WAR HOSPITAL I
WELSH WAR HOSPITAL I What Has Been Accomplished in a Year. Within a few weeks the Welsh Hospital at Xetley may be said to be one year old, for about a year ago the first batch of wounded men arrived at and were accom- modated in the hospital. Since that early day, already going quickly into the mists of antiquity, no fewer than 1,800 patients have been treated. The success of the efforts of the staff may be gauged from I the death rate, which is about 1 per cent. Whilst the medical range has been wide, the different types of men, aleo, has been varied; for not only have men from British regiments be>(n admitted, but there have also been Canadians, Austra- lians. New Zealanders, a. 'pure-bred Red Indian, and several Belgians. Of the original hospital staff less than half remain, the absent members having, in the majority of cases, gone nearer the front. The orderlies have in some e-ae" left to take up commissions, whilst those who were not so fortunate have, on the expir- ation of their contracts, joined the regu- lar forces. During its year of work the hospital, has grown, and having started life as a II 100 bedded establishment, after six months became a 212 bedded hospital. What the Hospital Costs. lhe growth in the size of the hospital has naturally made an increase in the staff necessary, and thisL standing origin- ally at .56, has now beenrought up to 93. Although the cost of the. hospital stands at about ii.100 a month, that sum soon dwindles when it is rememfeered that about 90 people have to be fed, clothed, and paid out of it, in addition to the purchase of comforts for the patients, drugs, instruments, the general up- keep, etc.

Our portrait is of Mrs. Hewitt, of 117, Tilbury Dwellings, Tilbury, who writes:- IViy Leg was Covered with Large Ulcerated Sores. The pain was excruciating. I consulted four doctors at different §| times; they gave me eoQie medicine and ointment, but still I seemed to get worse. At last I wm compelled to enter the hos- pital, and was an in-patient for seven weeks, but I did not get any better. Then I tried several medicines which were sup- posed to cure bad legs, but they never did me any good. One day a neighbour asked me to try Clarke's Blood Mix- ture: and I did so, and to my surprise, after taking several bottles I was completely cured, and can now walk about as well as anybody. I am very sorry I did not try your wonderful medi- cine before, because I feel sure I should have been saved years of suffering. At one time my leg was so bad that the doctor thought I should have to have it amputated, but thanks to Clarke's Blood Mixture' I am now quite well."
