IREVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS
I REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. I THE REVIEW OF REVIEWS/' J'he Review of Reviews for January enters upon its twenty-fifth year of publica- tion, and occasion has been taken to present the first number of the new volume in a tount pf type of great clearness and legibility, which will no .doubt be appreciated by its readers. The classification of the articles has also been impiovwl, and altogether t zine bears the impress of actuality and all- round improvement. A new feature is noticeable—the pttiduction of a specially drawn cartoon, "the .subject »being Mr. Lloyd George, who is represented as a Modern Moses." In an address t-o his readers, the Editor says that the corking policy of the "Review of Review" is to present impar- tially the ideas which imply progress in the many departments of ha/nan activity, and points out that, as the magazine circulates in every part of the world, this is an assur- ance that the work thus attempted is fairly well accomplished. At thsame time, how- ever the idea prevails in some quarters that in home politics the Conservative view-point does not receive full acknow ledgment. Being anxious to treat all shades of opinion as fairly as possible, he offers five guineas to any writer who sends in competition an article of 2,000 words giving an expression of the opinion of the average Conservative voter. A Conservative of repute will act ag adjudicator, and the winning essay will he printed in the Review." Many interesting special articles, several pages of Continent tal and Britis-h cartoons, a voluminous array of extracts ftogether with comment) from the leading magazines, a critical survey of the literature of the month, and a number of illustrations and portraits, make up the remainder of the contents of the magazine. Readers are thereby provided with a maga- zine which, keep* them informed with world- events of importance, as well as presenting them with the views of the foremost writers in the domain of social and literary affairs.— "The Review of Reviews," (kl. monthly. Bank Buildings, King?uav, London. I A HOOK FOR MOTHERS AXD I-k-. ()T'l I 1-:ItS. My Bahy in Sickness and in Health," hv Dr. IdizahPth Sloan Chester, M.B. • Ewart Seymour and Co.. Ltd., 12, Burleigh-street, Strand, London, w.e" 2/6 nett), is a book likply to be cordially welcomed by all mothers and everyone who is concerned in the care of children. It covers a very wide field, but is, nevertheless, concise, while at the same time dealing adequately with its various sub- jects. nie information it contains is of a kind that is much needed hy mothers, and not otherwise easily obtainable. As Dr. C'hosser >ays, If a mother is to prevent nursery ailments, if she is efficiently to un- dertake the care and management of sickness in the home, she must know something of the condition of thp hodv in health. She can, for example, only yet an intelligent idea of how to feed children if she has learned the elementary facts about digestion. She can ensure Iwalth only if she knows something of the head and circulation of the process of respiration—how fresh air is drawll into the lungs, and there gives up its oxygen to the blood." She can learn all this from "fv TIalw in Sickness and in Health," and she will find the book of very gi-eit interest, as well as value, on account of the simple and readable manner in which it is written. Dr. Chesser deals thoroughly with infectious diseases, disinfectants, hvgiene and sanitation in the home, nursing, the treatment of nur- sery accidents in emergency, and. in fact, with all the little troubles and problems from which no household is .entirely free. The question of children's health in hot clijmates is also dealt ii-ith, arvl .a detailed index, adds materially to the usefulness of the book by facilitating immediate reference to the var- ious subjects dealt with. The book is well illustrated, and is likely te .become an in- dispensable handbook in every household.

Loss of AppetiteI
Loss of Appetite. I Loss of appetite is usually traceable to some form of stomach or liver trouble, and may be taken as a sign that the digestive system is in need of a stimulating tonic. When you can't eat, or when food is distasteful, just try the effect of taking Mother Seigel's Syrup after your meals every day. This splendid herbal remedy tones up and strengthens the digestive organs, sharpens the appetite, and regulates the whole system. Then you not only eat your food- with a relish, but, more impor- tant still, the food you eat enriches your blood, nourishes your body, increases your strength and vitality, and makes you look well, feel well, and keep well.
PERILS OF NEGLECTED COLDS
PERILS OF NEGLECTED COLDS. LUNG WEAKNESS WARDED OFF BY PEPS. One lesson should be strictly observed in every home. Never neglect a oold, and don't treat it in a happy-go-lucky fashion. You run into real danger if you do. Chronic winter cough, bronchitis, asthma, and inflammation on the lungs are invariably traceable to neglected colds, and when the 'lungs are strained and weakened by constant coughing they more readily succumb to pleu- risy, pneumonia, and even consumption. This diagram shows how the Peps medi- cine is breathed through the windpipe direct into the lungs. Liquid physic and the juices of ordinary lozenges go into the stomach. Directly one feels a slight hoarseness m the throat, has a tickling cough, or a sensation of soreness and tightness about the eheSIt the best thing to do is to take a few breatheable Peps tablets. The incomparable value of Peps in cur- ing coughs and colds and routing danger- ous complications is traceable to a unique fea-ture in the re- medy. Peps treat by direct contact the real seat of disease in the throat, bron- chial tubes, and lungs. Peps are the first successful vola- tile or breatheable throat and chtiS-t medicine in tablet form Liquid medi- cine cannot enter the breathing tubes and lungs; it is swal- lowed down the gullet into the stomach, and a,s our diagram show,s, the passages to the lungs and the stomach are quite separate and distinct. When the little tablet (taken from its silver wrapper) is placed on the tongue, powerful healing fumes are given off by the dissolving tablet, and are carried with the breath into all parts pf the throat and chest. Chest comfort accompanies every deeply- drawn breath of the Peps-laden air. Sore- ness in the throat is quickly allayed. That desire to free the throat by haw king" leaves one, and the dry hacking cough soon ceases to he troublesome. Persevere with the Pops direct, treatment and tightness of the chest is released, whib the phlegm that chokes the bronchial tubes is loosened and easily expectorated. The breathing ge1. easier and soreness rapidly disappears. Peps are the one medicine to arrest a, oold and simultaneously give to every part of the throat, lungs, and chest, the strength and help necessary to successfully resist the evil effects of damp, cold, or foggy weather. Peps ave sold by Chemists and Store* fxt 1/1 J- and Be sure you get Peps.

I BARRY COUNTY counT i I
BARRY COUNTY counT. Before His Honour Judge Hill Kelly, the January sitting of the Barry Couuty Court was held at the Police Court, Barry Docks, on Tuesday last. Prior to the usual sitting of the Court, the Registrar (Mr. A. Jack- son) dealt with the uncontested cases. TALE OF THE SHIRT. Samuel Simons sued William Morris for 7/6 for a shirt supplied. Plaintiff said he sold the shirt to the de- fendant on July 31st It,-at, btlt although he had called weekly, no payments had been made. Defendant's wife denied buying the shirt, remarking that the plaintiff brought the shirt to the house, placed it on the table, and she had not seen him since. The defendant's wife now brought the shirt to the Court, and offered to return it. His Honour: Return the shirt, then. The action is struck out. I) A YIG FOR HIS TEMPER. Samuel Simons also sued William Richards, a dock labourer, for 15/ for clothing sup- plied. Plaintiff spoke to selling articles of clothing to defendant's wife. When he went to the house afterwards ho was told that the clothing had been thrown into the fire. Defendant told His Honour that he came home from work in a temper, and after hear- ing the facts from his wife, he threw the clothes into the fire. His Honour: Then you must pay for your temper. The order is 4/- a month. CLAIM AGAINST A TAXI-CAB PROPRIETOR. Mr, A. Parsons, B.A.L. (instructed by Mr. J. A. Hughes, solicitor, Barry), appeared for Thomas James, of Blackton Farm, who sought to recover damages from Taiiies O'Donovan, taxi-cab proprietor, Barry Docks, for injuries arising out of an acci- dent. Mr. George David, solicitor, Cardiff, defended. The accident, Mr. Parsons explained, hap- pened on December 9th last on the Port- road, Barry, at about eight o'clock in the evening. The plaintiff waa riding h:s cob from the direction of Wenvoe to Bairy. When plaintiff saw the car approaching, he put up his hand, but the driver took no notice, and .seemed to be swerving more and more towards the wrong side of the road, with the result that the car struck plain- tiff on his right hip, throwing him into the hedge. The cob's leg was broken, and the animal had to be destroyed. Plaintiff said that on the evening in ques- tion there was clear moon, and he saw the car approaching from ah-ont a hundred yards. When the car came up it struck him on the right thigh, and ho was knocked off the horse into the hedge. The pony was dragged backwards, and its hind leg was fractured. The animal, which was valued at t,30, 'had to be shot at once. In reply to Mr. David, plaintiff considered that defendant's car was travelling at about twenty miles an hour. Mr. David: I put it to you that the car was not going more than seven miles an hour. Plaintiff: My horse was dragged for ten yards, so that the car must have been tra- velling pretty fast. P.C. Howells spoke to being called to the scene of the accident, and now described tho injuries to the cob. It was a very bright moonlight night. Dr. A. N. Wilde said the plaintiff was bruised OR the hip and other parts of the hod v. For the dt,feiiek-, William George Jones, the driver, stated that ho had been. driving motor cars for twelve years, but this was his first accident. He was travelling at between six and eight miles an hour, and was on his right side. He received no signal whatever from the plaintiff to stop. The Judge thought the plaintiff was en- titled to recover, and he was satisfied that the driver of the car was negligent in sev- eral respects. His Honour thought that he was going at an excessive speed, and when the driver spoke about going at six or seven miles an hour he was talking rubbish. He thought he was not keeping a proper look- out. The plaintiff would be awarded £ 35 damages. COMPENSATION FOR LABOURER'S I INJURIES. Eli Barnes Fry, a labourer, sought to re- cover compensation for injuries from the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Com- pany. Mr. A. Parsons, B.A.L., appeared for applicant ,and Mr. St. John Francis Williams, B.A.L., for the respondents. Applicant stated that on February 20th, 1913, he was engaged on the steamship Swan- ley, at Barry Docks. He was on a staging, and one of the ropes gave way, with the re- sult that he fell about thirty feet. He sus- tained a fractured ankle, and was in the Barry Town Occident Hospital for nine weeks. He had also been at the Middlesex Hospital. Doctors A. Neville Wilde and E. R. Grif- fiths considered that the applicant was quite unfit to work; whilst a contrary opinion was expressed by Drs. O'Donnell and W. Rogers, M.D. The case was referred to a medical referee. "BOREU DA" TO THE JUDGE. The Court laughed heartily during the hearing of a case in which a lady was sued by a neighbour for £2 10s., for groceries purchased on her behalf. His Honour's remarks were continuously punctuated by the defendant by Yes, Judge," That's quite right. Judge," and I'll not pay her any more. I only owes her 14/- and 6/6." After his Honour had given judgment for plaintiff for £1 Os. 6d., defendant replied, "There you are. Thank you. Judge." The Court laughed heartily, and with a true Welsh accent, the woman, on leaving the building, shouted, Good morning, boreu da." ¡ -N. I

IA GREAT SUCCESS
I A GREAT SUCCESS. BARRY CHRYSANTHEMUM SOCIETY AXaTAL MEETING. OFFICERS A LL RE-ELECTED. Mr. W. Jones Thomas, the president, oc- cupied the ohair at the seventh annual meet- ing of the Barry and District Chrysanthemum' Society, held at the .M.C.A. Institute.. Barry Docks, oil Saturday evening last. There was a good attendance of members and in his report the Secretary (Mr. W. H. Eweiis) paid gratifying tribute to the great interest taken in the well-being of the Society by the President (Mr. Jones Thomas), which was very much appreciated. The last season was a difficult one for growing, hut they had!, reason to congratulate themselves upon the results of their work. The donations were slightly lesa than the previous year, but there was a balance in hand of £ 4 Ss. 10d.„. after all expenses had been paid. (Cheers,.> The Treasurer (Mr. W. W. Lucas) thought, considering the unfavourable weather, they had done remarkably well. The balance on the right Lido was due to the arduous efforts of the ladies' committee. If they continued to work together as they had done in the past, they would have no fear of their posi- tion 'in future shows. (Cheers.) The report and balance sheet were adopted, The President, proposing a vote of thanks to the retiring officers, said that during bin experience with societies he found that excel- lent officers were needed to conduct the af- fairs, but none exceeded the excellent work of this Society. He certainly congratulated the Barry Chrysanthemum Society upon ob- taining such hard-working officers and com- mittee, and upon the way in which the work had been carried out with enthusiasm and harmony. (Cheers.) Mr. 1). Fair seconded, and the veto was carried with acclamation Tho Secretary (Mr. W. H. Ewens), ros- ponding, ..aid that what eyer they could do for the henefit of the Chrysanthemum Soeiety, ho was .sure they would continue to CIO ii-it-h great pleasure. (Cheers.) The President: As far as the ladies arc concerned, they have been of great service and have raved us a great deal of trouble. (Cheers.) They will, I am sure, be as loval in future as they have been in the past. (Hear, hear.) ELECTION OF OFFICERS The various officers were re-elected for tho ensuing year as follows:—President, Mr. W. Jones Thomas; secretary, Mr. W. H. Ewens; assistant secretary, Mr. W. J. Turner; school secretary, Mr. J. Bennett; treasurer, Mr. W. W. Lucas; auditors, Messrs. S. T. Guv and A. E. Amor chairman of committee, Mr. J. Woodward; vice-chairman, Mr. S. T. Gm". Mr. J. Stapleton presented to Mr. Thomas Vezey a handsome silver cup for selling the- largest number of ticket- for the last show. Presentations of silver carving knives were- made to Mrs. W. H. Ewens and Mrs. W. W. Lucas. Mr. W. W. Liic-as was ahso pre- sented with a Thermos flask, on behalf of the- committee, in recognition of his valuable services. CLASSES FOR, THE CHILDREN. Addressing the meeting, the President hoped the Society would continue to be suc- cessful in the future. They had been ex- tremely successful in the past. When they were connected with a Society such as this, one whose affairs were taken care of by such first-class officers, and by such a splen- did working committee, they had every cause to rejoice. They should be very proud of themselves, knowing that the Chrysan- themum Society of Cardiff had unfortunately fallen out on the way. But I want to give you a word of warning," the President con- tinued. There is a danger, when we are achieving success after success, that we may suffer from swelleii head,' and the conse- quences of a swelled head often spell disaster. We, perhaps, may reach such heights that we may become giddy, and fall down to the bottom, with our success all vanished. We must retain our balance if we are to reach the heights of fame. (Cheers.) It was possible for them to stand still, which was the first sign of weakness. He hoped the officers would be like Alexander the Great. They had reached great things; they had won a fine reputation, but they must go on, knowing there were more worlds to conquer. (Cheers.) They must go on from prosperity to greater prosperity. Thev should try to add more classes to the sche- dule, and, if possible, to extend their work in the direction of the chi-ldren, not in es- says, perhaps, but there should be classes for school children in gardening. (Cheers.) He hoped the committee would address them- selves to this suggestion. He hoped that the members of the committee wou!d help the secretary and officers all they could. The work which the Secretary undertook meant a great deal of time out of his leisure, and the committee should try to assist in the work as much as possible. (Cheers.) An enjoyable musical programme was ren- dered by Miss. Gwenllian Da-vies (pianoforte), Mr. D. Hopkins (tenor), Mr. Arthur Lathev (baritone), and Mr. Con Driscoll (violin) THE MONTHLY MEETINGS. Mr. R. Powell suggested the advisability of resuming the monthly meetings, and pro- p-osed that a member of the committee be- appointed to arrange for the holding of these meetings. The- Society would then be more likely to keep together, and information re- ceived at these meetings would be of great assistance. It was de,cided to resume the monthly meeting, and the annual meeting closed with i-otes of thanks.
