I The master reported that Divine services had been conducted at the House by tho Revs. fl. Ivor James (B.) and Joseph Harry Cong.). Newspapers had been sent to the inmates by Ald. Watkins. An altered diet- ary, which met the approval of the medical officer, had been drawn out for Fridays. Plain cake had been substituted for bread and choose for lunch, so that the inmates would not be supplied twice with the same kind of food. The Board adopted) the change. Visits had been paid to the institu- tion by Ald. Watkins and Mr. J. Prytherch. They found everything satisfactory. Messrs. Evan Harris, Thomas Williams, and Nicho- las Nicholas had paid- visits at 5.30 p.m. on the 23rd of July. They found all the in- mates clean and happy, and he-ard no com- plaints. subsequent visit was also re- corded by Messrs. Watkins and Prytherch, when thay found everything in good order.. The door of the women's ward leading into the garden had been repaired in a highly satisfactory manner. The number of in- mates wae 25, against Z3 in the correspond- ing period, and the number of vagrants re- lieved for tho fortnight 44, against 55 in th# corresponding period la'st year. Precepts. I The clerk announced the receipt of pre- cepts including L264 4s. lid. in respect to the County School, and EI,591 general county mte.-Mr. R. Thomas asked if any reply had been received to the letter ad- dressed to the medical superintendent st the Mental Hospital, Carmarthen.—The Clerk replied in the negative—Mr. R. Thomas then moved that he be sent a re- minder asking him if he would supply them with a reply by the next meeting.—This was agreed to. Economy in Expenditure. I The Clerk read a circular from the Local Government Board issued to local authori- ties on The 4th of August drawing their at- tention to the need for the organisation of labour and the restriction of borrowing, and the postponement of all except abso- lutely necessary/ works.—The Clerk said it wma more applicable to the Rural District Council than the Board of Guardians. It applied to the latter in respect to the mak- ing of rates. He did not know where they oou'd economise more than they did. As to the Rural District Council they had only a few bridges where they might consider its application—The Chairman said they ap- proved of the contents of the circular.—The Clerk asked if they wished to fix a commit- tee to fix the rates for the next half-year.- The Chairman: Wo ,will act "UI a whole Board as usual. The Late Mr. Herbert Morgan. I Councillor Thomas, of Whitland, who in- troduced himself as the son-in-law of the late Mr. Herbert Morgan, assistant overseer "Uld collector of rates up to the time of his death, for Llangadock, applied on behalf of deceased's relatives, and especially tJte widow, that they might be allowed to col- lect the rates for this term. Mi". Thoma. said he hid, in conjunction with Mrs. Lewis, his sister-in-law, who assisted her father in the work for the last few years, consulted the overseers, and they were agreeable, sub- ject to the approval of the Board of Guar- dians. The deceased had, before he died, collected a goodly sum, and paid it into the bank. What they wanted was to be allowed to complete the collection of the rate. He believed that the deceased had even gone further than that; he had delivered, with the exception of a very few, the demand notes for the new rates. Mr. Thomas ex- plained that he had been appointed sole executor of the estate, and, as showing his suitability to undertake the responsibility, mentioned—although he had no desire to blow his own trumpet-thaf' he had been for years a member of the Narberth Board of Guardians and the District Council. He aaarcd tho Board that everything would be done as speedily as possible, -%nd he hoped, with the help of Mrs. Lewis, to do the work and bring in the books completed by that day month. He should, as well as the family, be very pleased if the Board would grant this request.—Aid. Watkins said that peraottally he considered the application a very reasonable one, but at the same time he should like to be clear whether they would be within their rights if they moved in the matter without conferring with the Parish Council. He was certainly in favour of recommending the course suggested to the body named, who could communicate with the overseers. He failed to see why anyone could have any objection to the ap- plication. They all knew the late collector very well. There was no better one in the. county.—Mr. Thomas said he should be pleased to deposit as security in the bank £;100 or £ 800.—Mr. L. Eoderick •. I move, if it is in accordance with the wish of the Parish Council, that we sanction the application.— Ald. Watkins said he had great pleasure in seconding, and he hoped there would be no obstacle in the way. He should like the relatives to finish the lot.—The Olerk: As far as I can gather, the Board of Guardians will have no objection whatever to accept security from the representatives of the late Mr. Herbert Morgan. As you are awara, you have no voice in the -%ppointment of an assistant overseer, but whoever is ap- pointed has to give security to this Board. The appointment is with the Parish Coun- cil, and the overseers are responsible for the rates. The Clerk added that it would be useless jrassing a resolution if it was not in order. If they stated that they would not raise any objeotion, that would meet the case.—Mr. Thomas: I have the approval of the overseers.-The Clerk said it would carry more weight if the Board recom- mended to the Parish Council th-at Mr. Thomas be appointed temporarily.—Aid. Watkins: That will simplify matters very much. I agree with that, and move that we strongly recommend to the Parish Council the representative of the late Mr. Morgan to collect.—Mr. Thomas said that the people were oontinually bringing money in, but be did not think it advisable to interfere with the books until the course suggested had been approved of.—The Clerk said that the fact that that gentleman was the executor under the will carried great weight, for the reprosentsaiv-e of the late Mr. Morgan was responsible for what was collected. Vote of Condolence. The Chairman: I am sure we are all very thankful t- you. Mr. Thomas, for your ser- vices. The late Mr. Morgan was very long connected with this Board,, although not actually our servant -is overseer, and did his work most satisfactorily- I propose that we pass a vote of condolence with the family.—Aid. Watkins, seconding, said they held the late Mr. Morgan in great respect. They looked upon him "LS a very good offi- cer, and he did his work thoroughly. With regard to tho new assessment or valuation in his parish, he had everything at his fin- ger ends. He felt that they had lost a most excellent officer.-The votu was"carried in the usiral way, the member^"standing the while. The Clerk explained having received a communication from the Lord Lieutenant of the County, Mr. J. W. Gwynne Huerhes, Tregyb, with reference to calling meetings of the Board of Guardians and R.D.C.. to vam a patriotic resolution as tiie it-oniver- i sary of the war. The communication was not, however, received in time to convene meetings.—Members generally expressed their approval of the resolution with its ex- pression of determination to continue the war to a victorious issue.

THE DOMESTIC ARTS
THE DOMESTIC ARTS. Swansea Committee and College Charges. At a meeting of Swansea Education Committee on Monday, Aid. J. Dovonald was voted to the chair. The Clerk (Mr. A. W. Halden) reported on a meeting of the Joint Management Committee of the Training School for Domestic Arts for South Wales and Mon- mouthshire, at Cardiff, and the Council of the University College of Cardiff with regard to the renewal of the lease to the Management Committee, which expired on July 31st last. The rent was previously 1:400 per annum, the college providing a portion of the clerical assistance, but charging £100 to the Management Com- mittee under this head. The college now wished to increase the rent by 1:50, and if they supplied clerical assistance required a total of £ 620 per annum. The com- mittee, however, agreed to pay the £ 4-50 rent, and provide clerical assistance at 4:126 per annum, bringing the total cost to the committee tfc £5ï5. Mr. T. J. Kees (Director of Education) wrote that a dozen Swansea girls were already in the school, with more to follow, and he strongly advised the sealing of the agreement with the new terms. In the coarse of discussion Mr. Ivor Gwynne said the University made a failure of the school. The Management Committee had changed this to a success, but the profit they had made was not sufficient to warrant this increase. He would not agree to a renewal of the agreement for five years, because at any moment they might make their own ar- rangements in Swansea. There was a possibility of all elementary school teachers having to take domestic subjects, and they might have to make local ar- rangements. But if they did not agree to jhe present proposals Swansea girls would be at a disadvantage. The University fakpd taken undue advantage of the educa- tional authorities of South Wales. The I agreement was agreed to for three years. I

DUNVANT COLLfERS DEATHI
DUNVANT COLLfER'S DEATH. I Thricl Adjourned Coroner's Inquiry. The thrice-adjourned inquest upon David Long, of Eryncelyn, Waunarlwydd, a collier employed at Dunvant Colliery, was concluded by Mr. F. H. Glynn Price (county coroner) at Shepherds' Hall. Waunarlwydd. Long was found dead at the colliery on the 20th. July last. Mr. Rowlands appeared for the oom- j pany. Dr. David Arwyn Davies, M.R.C.S., j L.R.C.P., in his evidence at the first in- quest, said in his opinion deceased had slipped, struck his head against some hard 8U bstance, and fallen face downwards into the pool in wbich decea?wd w?? found, and death would be due to drowning. It was impossible, however, to say whether the burns on the hands were due to the electric current or some other cause; there were three burns. After further evidence, the jury re- turned a verdict of Death through asphyxiation, due to electrocution and drowning, accidentally caused."
I WELSH MP AT MUNITIONSI OFFICE
WELSH M.P. AT MUNITIONS OFFICE. On Monday Mr. W. Llewelyn Williams, K.O., M.P took up a position as a sort of law officer of the Crown, unpaid. There are, it appears, some 30 to 40 Acts of Par- liament, emergency and otherwise, which affect the Ministry of Munitions, and, of course, that Ministry being of such recent creation, many questions of a legal char- acter as yet unsolved have arisen and are likely to arise. Laet week, Mr. Williams offered his ser- vices to Mr. Lloyd George, and the latter gladly accepted them with a view to elucidating from the legal point* at view these points.

I BOYS FOOLISH ACT
I BOYS' FOOLISH ACT. Six young Garnant boys namect Leslie Jones, Percy Jones, Gwynfor Jones, Gwynne Davies, Alf. Evans, and Michael Michael, were charged at the Juvenile Court at Ammanford on Monday with having damaged a Great Western Rail- way crossing at Garnant to the extent of < £ 3 on the 13ch of last May. Mr. T. R. Ludford. in prosecuting, said the charge was a serious one because, in addition to smashing the crossing gate, the consequences of the boys' mischievous acts might have proved very grave indeed. By means of a big bar, they uncoupled one of a number of empty wagons on the Prince Albert siding, and also released I the brakes The truck began to move, and gathered momentum till it crashed i through the Prince Albert crossing gates. Fortunately, a man named Mason hap- pened to be there at the time, and suc- ceeded in stopping the truck, which had been checked in its career by impact with the gates. Otherwise, there was nothing to stop it going along to Garnant Station, and by then it would no doubt have gone at a speed of 50 miles an honr. The serious part of it was that a passenger train was about due at Garnant Station at the time. The parents of the boys pleaded guilty on their behalf. A A ported named W. F. Mortimer gave evidence. Detective Inspector W. H. Morris said it would cost JQJxs repair the crossing gate. He mentioned that the 6.15 p.m. passenger train from Llanelly was due at Garnant almost at the time this occurred, and that there was nothing except one -Or of points to srop this uncoupled wagon running all the way down. The Chairman, Mr. Henry Herbert, addressing the parents, pointed out the serious consequences that would have ensued. A passenger train being due at the time, it was probable that a large number of lives would have been. lost as a result. Each of the parents would have to pay 30s. inclusive, with the exception of the father of the boys Leslie and Percy Jones, who would have to pay costs. The boys and parents were bound over.
BEAT HER SERVANT I
BEAT HER SERVANT. I Mistress Sent to Gaol. An amazing story of cruelty to a young domestic servant, who was beaten by her mistress with sticks and a rein, and whotie hair was cut off with a horse-clipping machine, was related at Banbridge (County Down) Sessions on Saturday, when Mrs. Margaret Bethel, of Ballievey House, County Down, was charged with having assaulted and beaten Bridget Murphy, aged 19, in an aggravtaed manner. She was convicted and sentenced to one month's hard labour. Robert Gray, one of defendant's servants, was fined 40s. and costs, or in default 14 days' imprisonment, for aiding and abetting Mrs. Bethel. Great local interest was taken in the prosecution owing to Mrs. Bethel's social position. Bridget Murphy stated that within a week of being engaged as a servant to Mrs. Bethel the latter beat her with a stick be- cause she was not working hard enough. The blows cut her head and legs and hands. She was beaten with a -stick al- most every day. On Sunday, July 18, Mrs. Bethel beat her with the handle of a pitch- fork. Some time before that defendant beat her so severely about the head that her ears bled. She also cut her hair with a horse-clipping machine in the stable. De- fendant attempted to beat her, and she ran to the fields, and the other defendant followed "her and brought her back for Mrs. Bethel to beat her. On another occasion defendant beat her with a pony rein and threw a bucket of water on her. Constable Hyland informed the magis- trates that he and Constable McNalty on July 19 found Murphy wandering along a country road. Her hair was so closely cropped that they didn't know whether she was a boy or girl. The only clothes she had on wero an old potato bag with a hole cut out for her head and arms, a jorsoy and undergarment, and a pair of boots. She had no stock- ings.

BOUND OVER. The case agwnst Thomas Morris Wil- liams, the young shunter, who was charged with stealing and receiving S:4, the property of John Thomas Davies, at 46, Balaclava-street, St. Thomas, was re- sumed at the Swansea Police Court on Monday. Mr. Henry Thompson appeared for the defendant, and prosecutor in cross-exam- ination said that defendant was a decent and sober fellow who, however had got in with theatrical women, resulting in his spending more money than he earned. Detective Barry said that since the previous hearing he had made enquiries, and had found that defendant had been employed by the railway company for nine years. Up to the present he had borne a good character. Defendant pleaded guilty, and elected to be tried summarily. Mr. Thompson spoke at some length in mitigation, and several witnesses testified as to defendant's character. Defendant was bound over in the sum of S5 for twelve months, and "not fre- quent public houses or playhouses during that period." i 1 1

Defendant said his wife paid 8s. for furnished apartments at prosecutor's house on the Monday and on the Tues- day Graddol started to take away the furniture, saying they were moving. Graddel had taken 8s., but did not men- tion that he was about tf move. The result was he and his wife and child were left with not even a bed to lie on.

COAL AND PRICES I
COAL AND PRICES. SCHEME OF REGULATIONS APPRCTVED. At a well-attended meeting of colliery proprietors of the Swansea (or Western) District at the Exchange, Swansea, on Friday, Mr C E. Cleeves presiding, an agreement between the various colliery owners in the district for dealing with the position brought about by the Price of Coal (Limitation) Ace, 1915, was passed, subject to confirmation by the general committee acting for South "Vftales, which meets at Cardiff on Tuesday. The agreement is a copy of the uniform one drafted by the General Committee for South Wales and Monmouthshire, it provides, inter alia, that every colliery owner shall make a return to the com- mittee of the quantities of different kinds of coal dispatched monthly from his colliery, and for what purposes, during each of the half years ending Dec. 3lst, 1913, June 30th, 1914, Dec. 31at, 1914, and June 30th, 1915. The more important clauses, which bear on the regulation of prices to be paid by the consumer, read as follows::— The committee may from time to time in respect of any town or other place within the districts enter into agreements with local authorities, coal merchants, or hauliers, fixing the prices at which var- ious descriptions of coal shall be de- livered to houses for domestic use; and in all cases the prices so agreed shall be ad- vertised or otherwise made public within such area. Before execution of any order a col- liery owner may require from the buyer payment of such a sum as may be sufficient to cover the value of the coal ordered, and of the transport and other charges on same. The committee shall endeavour, as far as practicable, to arrange that the respec- tive collieries shall supply coal for use in the United Kingdom in approximately the same quantities as they were supply- ing coal for similar purposes at the date of the Act. The cases of new collieries shall be dealt with by the committee on their respective merits. Any coal consumer or merchant requir- ing coal for use in the United Kingdom, and failing to secure supplies, or, any col- liery owner considering himself aggrieved, may apply to the committee, who will in- vestigate and deal with. his complaint. The collieries may at any time refuse to supply to any consumer or works more coal than in the opinion of the committee is necessary for the current carrying on of such works or the current require- ments of such consumer. The collieries may refuse to supply any applicant with coal intended for con- sumption outside Monmouthshire and South Wales, unless such applicant has prior to the war been obtaining supplies from collieries within the district of the committee.
FOR SORE TIRED FEET CORNS I AND ALL FOOT TROUBLESi
FOR SORE, TIRED FEET, CORNS AND ALL FOOT TROUBLES. WHAT SOLDIERS DO WHEN FEET ACHE, BURN, SMART, AND PERSPIRE Many readers of the Herald of Wales" may be interested to know how I permanently cured the extremely pain- ful foot troubles resulting from my first few days of route marching. After numerous powders and ointments had only increased the torture I consulted my medical man, and he explained that corns, callouses, bunions, and blisters are simply indications of injured tissues, but that there is really no need of enduring any form of foot misery a single moment. They can all be instantly relieved and permanently cured by simply resting the feet for about ten minutes in a warm foot bath containing a tablespoonful of ordinary Reudel Bath Saltrates. This softens even the worst corns so they come out root and all at the first touch, and all calloused places, soreness, and aching will quickly disappear. The feet being the farthest point from the heart to which blood must bo forced, foot troubles are often due to shoe 'pressure and de- fective circulation in those extremities. By treating the feet as 'above directed you will stimulate the blood circulation, clear out sebaceous matter from the clogged poros, render the skin active, healthy, and free from offensive odour or in- jurious effects of acid perspiration, and thus banish foot troubles for all time. All chemists keep Reudel Bath Saltrates ready put up in convenient packets, one of which will prove more than sufficient to permanently end all foot misery. A rriend to whom I mentioned these salt- rates even tried the treatment for chronic gout and rheumatism with astonishingly good results. Try it after coming in foot- sore from a long walk. You will soon feel like dancing with joy.—H.G.C.
DEATH OF AN OLD SWANSEA OFFICIAL
DEATH OF AN OLD SWANSEA OFFICIAL. Regret is felt amongst Corporation em- ployes at the news of the death of Mr. James VlTf36t, of 198, Kensington-terrace, Swansea. Mr. West, who was 70 years of age, had for 35 years been a timekeeper in the employ of the Swansea Corpora- tion, and in this capacity lie became well known and highly respected by many other than Corporation employes and officials. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, the cortege leaving the house at 3 o'clock. The mourners in- cluded Messrs. Jack West, William, Albert, Ted and Jim West (sons). The latter, who belongs to the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, was dressed in khaki. One of the deceased's sons was not present—Mr. Dan West-who left England on active service about a fortnight ago, so that he is still without the news of his father's death. Other mourners were: Messrs. John Wride, A. J. Maries, Cadbury Jones, Arthur Chapman, and Owen Williams; George Swarbricke, Assistant Borough Surveyor; Ivor Surridge, Oliver Thomas, and Dr. Lewis Jones. A number of other Corporation workmen and officials fol- lowed the hearse. A short service was held at the house by the Vicar of Christ Church, after which the procession left for Danygraig Ceme- tery, where the internment took place.
A WHALE ON GOWER SANDSI
A WHALE ON GOWER SANDS. Rhossili Sands, at Gower, has an added attraction at present, in-the shape of a large whale. The animal was washed up last week, and wea first seen to be floundering about in shallow water, eventually being left high and dry by the receding tide. Large numbers of visitors have visited the beach to view the remarkable creature, which, sad to say, suffered a great deal from the thirst of the eight-seers for mementos, in the shape of pieces of tail, fin, etc.

ILOST CON5CIO5NilbdI IN THE AIR
LOST CON5CIOÙ:5Nilbd I IN THE AIR. FIFTY-TIMES WOUNDED FLYINGI MAN'S ESCAPE FROM DEATH. General Headquarters, British Expedi- tionary Force, Saturday.-A very fine feat of endurance was recently achieved by an officer of the Royal Flying Corps. When effecting- a reconnaissance behind the Ger- man lines in Belgium he was very severely wounded by a shrapnel burst which almost severed hie leg He lost consciousness and his machine dived nose foremost. Fortunately it was flying very high, and after turning over once righted itself again. When he was wounded the pilot collapsed over the steering gear with his arms round the pillar, and this kept him in his seat when the machine turned turtle. Ilia observer was jammed hard between the machine gun and the struts by the shock of the sudden fall earthward, and he also was saved from falling out. When the machine righted itself the pilot, remaining consciousness, got control of it again and flew for thirty-five minutes to an aerodrome he knew of, where, wounded as he was, he made a perfect landing. Once on the ground he had ito wait until assist- ance could be brought to get him out of hie pilot's seat, for he was afraid that his leg would become detached altogether if he tried to struggle down by himself. He is now in hospital with some fifty wounds in his leg. Nevertheless, the doc. tors hope to eave the leg. Two officers of the Royal Flying Corps had a no less extraordinary escape the other day. When flying at a great height they got into a bank of cloud and speedily lost all .senl3e of direction. The adventure, ended by their machine diving at a dizzy angle straight through the clouds to earth. They were deep in the enemy's country, but though they were quite close to the ground when the machine righted itself, very fortunately they had nothing worse 'to face than a very irregular rifle fire from some German soldiers in a village and suc- ceeded in getting away unharmed.
FALSE PRETENCES I
FALSE PRETENCES. I Women Fined at Woolwich. I A grave warning to persons who commit separation allowance frauds was uttered on Saturday by Mr. J. G. Halkett, the Woolwich magistrate. Mr. Halkett heard a number of sum- monies against soldiers and their rela- tions for "attempting to obtain by false pretences from the regimental paymaster, Woolwich, a sum of money representing a soldier's separation allowance." Mr. E. F. Barker, for the Director of Public Prosecutions, said that all the ca" arose out of false statements made by soldiers' mothers, and sometimes by soldiers, regarding their earnings before they enListed and the amounts they al- lowed their mothers before the war. Scores of these cases will be brought before the Woolwich magistrate in the near future 'said Mr. Barker. "There are hundreds of cases in which money has actually been obtained in this way, and thousands more in which such attempts have been made all over the country. It is very necessary to stamp. it out, especially in such times as these, when the country is paying r,3,000,000 a day for the war." Mr. Hal Halkett said that separation allowances had been paid on a most lavish scale—far in excess of what had been in- tended—and in many case the money was not used as it should be. The duty of magistrates," he added, is to deal most severely with women who do this sort of thing when the re- sources of the country are so heavily taxed. I wiisli it to be made known that in future cases of this kind I shall inflict imprisonment." One woman was fined 93, another £ 2 10s., and a 'third El 10s. A fourteen-year-old soldier who helped his mother to commit a fraud was fined £ 1.

SAVINGS BANK FUNDS
SAVINGS BANK FUNDS. How War Loan Has Affected Swansea Investments. The half-yearly meeting of the trustees and managers of the Swansea Savings Bank was held on Monday afternoon at the bank; Sir J. T. D. Llewelyn presiding. The summary prepared by the actuary, Mr. C. Henry Corby, showed that invest- ments in the War Loan amounted to 113,940, In the Government Department, £ 38,424 had been received, as compared with L49,443 in the corresponding period of last year, whilst 141,420 had been paid, as compared with X45,158 in 1914. The total funds now amounted to £ 357,498; in 1914 they were £ 367,839. In the investment, department, 16,294 had been received, a decrease of .14,76t; whilst iE4,474 had been paid; a drop of £ 2,953. The total funds were somewha,t, in advance of last year's, being £ 83,868, aa compared with X81,736 in 1914. In moving the adoption of the report and accounts, the Chairman said that the figures did not require much comment. The decrease in the amount in the bank was very small compared with what might have been expected. Since last May there had, no doubt, been a considerable decrease ciaused by invetitments in the War Loan. Up to la-it month over 113,000 had been in- vested in War Loan, but that vtould only be about four per ceat. of their funds. In other baaks the percentage would be larger than that. Mr. Corby had recently visited Manchester to attend a meeting to disease the situation, and he had been able to gauge whaot the position should be in Swansea. He told him the result of his enquiries, and he (Sir John) had expected the bank to be affected to the extent of about £ 20,000. He was glad to think that the money taken out had been employed for perfectly, national transac- tions. Sir John went on to refer in terms of regret to the loss they had sustained through the death of Lord Glantavce, who had been connected with them for forty. four years. During that period "the banto had progre&sed in noteworthy fashion. Mr. Simpson proposed a vote of condolence with the family of the late baron and Dr. Stephell6 seconded. The vote Was carrie(L in silence. The accounts were adopted.
