Whilst the reports of the schools were being read, attention was called to the fact thart- a large number of attendances were lüt. at Hannah-street boys' School every month be- muse many of the scholars had no boots to wear. The teachers, it was stated, had done their best to procure cast-off boots, but were titill unable to meet the requirements.

GAS FOR DINAS POWIS RESIDENTS
GAS FOR DINAS POWIS RESIDENTS. PARISH COUNCIL TO PAY HALF I THE COST. BARRY GAS AND WATER COM- MITTEE AND SUGGESTED COKE REDUCTION. I The monthly meeting of the Barry Gas and I Water Committee was held on Monday even- ing last. Mr. G. Wareham (chairman) pre- sided, and the members present were Messrs. S. R. Jones. J. Felix Williams, J. E. Levers, W. Fowler, L. P. Griffiths, and D. T. Howe. GAS AND WATER COLLECTIONS. I Mr. John Jenkins, the superintendent col- lector, reported that during the past month the total gas and water collections amounted I to £ 6,171 10s. 9-Jd. ENGINEER S REPORT. I Mr. T. E. Franklin, the gas engineer and I manager, reported that the total consumption ¡ of water at Barry during the past month was 24,973,320 gallons, an increase of 4.390,180 gallons compared with January of the pre- vious year. There were 37.8 hours of bright sunshine, the maximum G.5 hours, on Jan. 1st. On eleven days rain fell, with a fall of 1.49 inches. PRICE OF COKE. It was also reported that the coke sale was very dull at present, and Mr. J. Felix Wil- liams moved, and Mr. Howell Williams seconded, that the price of coke be reduced to 10 í per ton, and per cwt. correspondingly, thus giving poor people a chance to purchase the coke. Mr. Franklin said he could sell a great deal of coke to people outside the town for 11/6' to 12/- per ton. Mr. Howell Williams considered that they would be catering for the poor people, at any rate. Mr. S. R. Jones said there was nothing" more misleading than Mr. Howell Williamsj statement. The poor people, ho thotlht, would not get the advantage. It was agreed to adhere to the present price ) of coke. G t I GAS SUPPLY TO MURCH. Regarding the question of supplying gas to -ttioii of the I Dinas Powis Parish Council having awaited upon the Commit ice at the previous meetirs: --the Engineer and Manager reported that the figures given on the previous occasion were substantially correct, and it would not l be sa fe to calculate upon the expenditure of a loss sum than originally estimated. j Oil the proposition of Mr. J. Felix AVII- liams, seconded by Mr. L. P. Griffiths, it was decided to supply the gas on condition that the Dinas Powis Parish Council pa' v half the I cost. J
"TAKEN FRIGHT." BARRY COUNCIL AND THE HOS- PITAL QUESTION. HOSPITALS COMMITTEE AGAIN CONSIDER THE MATTER. AGITATION LIKENED TO SNOWBALL. Mr. F. E. J. Murrell (chairman) presid- ing, a, special meeting of the Barry Hospi- tal Committee was held on Friday evening last, to again consider the question of the medical staffing of the Town Accident Hospi- tal. There were only four members pre- sent, Dr. P. J. O'Donnell, Messrs. James Jones, F. C. Milner, and Dr. E. J. H. Budge. The Chairman pointed out that theae was a strong demand that the Council should appoint a highly qualified surgeon, at JS500 or £600 a year. During the past year, Mr. Murrell explained, they only had 133 acci- dents, and of these, 101 were detained, only half being of such a character as to be termed serious. An average of ten beds were occupied during the yea;r, and an average of two cases a week were presented for a doctor. It seemed ridiculous to sug- gest that they wanted a highly qualified man there for that. The number of in- patients who went to Cardiff Infirmary wad 120. It was impossible, the Chairman added, for one surgeon to be a specialist- in all things. There were many things the finest surgeon in the world would not tackle. Dr. O'Donnell: I think most of these cases were women. The Chairman: Yes; it appears that more specialists were called into the Hospital in 1912 than last year. WJiether the doctors are getting used to the work, I do not know. I feel very strongly that with all this information before us, we should go back to the position previously taken up. We should insist upon the Council making a trial. At the Cardiff Infirmary there are 200 beds, and six resident doctors, but of course there are honorary surgeons. At Barry we have the School Clinic work, but that would only take up about one day per week. Dr. O'Donnell: One afternoon a week. The Chairman: Would It bo possible to tack on to this scheme another scheme whe-reby we could form a panel in connec- tion with the Cardiff Infirmary, so that when a case went to the Hospital which our doc- tors could not tackle, we could call in a specialist from Cardiff? Mr. Milner: They were asked the same question several years ago if they would come down at a fixed rate, but they refused. Dr. O'Donnell: I don't sec wlij tftiese cases should not be done here. The Chairman: By our own doctors? Dr. O'Donnell: Yes. Cases have been sent to the Infirmary which could have been treated here. It was suggested by the Chairman that the Cardiff specialists be retained at a fee, and the patients should have the choice of either one of the staff or a specialist. The Council had apparently taken fright. The Committee would have to prevent the appointment of a man who would be a bur- den to the rates. Dr. O'Donnell asked what lie would do at the Hospital. The Chairman: I don't know; I want to ascertain that. It was decided to enquire whether the specialists of the Cardiff Infirmary would act I at the Barry Hospital in special cases, in ;I a honorary capacity, and if not, what fee would they require. Mr. Milner: 'I think we should carry out our original idea. It was stated by Mr. T. B. Tordoff, the clerk, that as a result of the advertisement which had appeared one week, he had re- ceived two communications. One asked for a list of duties, and the other was from a lady doctor. Dr. O'Donnell: It is very strange that the Barry Railway Company's men have not taken the matter up. It is only the Barry Graving Dock and the Tyne Engine Works. Mr. Milner: Yes, agitation is like a snow- ball; as it rolls it gets bigger. It was decided to hold the proposed con- ference in the Council Chamber on Wednes- day, March 11th, at 7.30 p.m., when repre- sentatives of public bodies would be invited to give their views, but not to discuss the matter.

TO BANISH LANGUOR I AND DEPRESSION. I Many women, and not a few men, imagine that languor and depression are due to ordinary fatigue, and so they go on suffering, whereas the cause is most often to be found in stomach and liver troubles. When life seems sunless and cheerless, when things always seem to go wrong, and work goes hard, because you feel so depressed and weary, tackle the trouble at its source by restoring your stomach, liver, and bowels to regular healthy action. Tuo her Seigel's Syrup does that most effectively. For over forty years people all over the world have found it to be a splendid and a ready means of banishing and preventing digestive troubles, whether arising from indigestion, a sluggish state of the liver, or inactive bowels. Don't accept anything in place of Mother Seigel's Syrup.

H FOR PROMENADE WALKERS. Mr. E. made a plea for shelters on the Promenade at Barry Island. The Council, he said, had decided to charge a halfpenny for admission to the Promenade yet there was no accommodation or s helters in case of rain. He suggested that four small shelters bo erected at a cost of £ G6 each. Mr. Howell Williams: Cannot we put a big shelter across the bridge? The Surveyor (Mr. J. C. Pardoe): You have two large shelters there now. Mr. Howell Williams: I mean simply for the convenience of the people on the Promenade. During the summer a large number of people go there, and if we had 0110 shelter there it would show the public we are catering for them as far as we pos- sibly can. Mr. P. L. Griffiths moved that one large shelter be erected, but the Committee even- tua?y decided to defer the matter for six tti,,illy (Icc:decl to defet- t l i(,, iiiitter foi- x Mr. Howell Williams: According to 31V.

Lloyd moved that the Barry Railway Company be asked to allow the footpath to be made. The Chairman: It is no good for us to pay £ 40 or £,50 for making the footpath if the Barry Railway Company will take it from llS. This Council is so generous to the Barrv Company. Mr. Lloyd We should appoint a deputa- tion to wait upon the Barry Railway mana- ger. Mr. Marshall: The Barry Chamber of Trade are the people to ask. The Chairman: What is the Chamber of Trade? It gives me the "pip" to hear or see them. (Laughter.) Mr. C. B. Griffiths seconded Mr. Lloyd's proposition, and it was decided that 'the Chairman. Mr. D. T. Howe, and the Sur- veyor (Mr. J. C.

Clive-road, Barry Island, a carriage examiner, said he examined the train previous to its leaving the sheds. The doors of the train upon which the I deceased had travelled were in perfect order.

William Henry Parkman. engine driver, said he drove the 1.37 p.m. train from Porth on the previous Saturday, and he met the train upon which the lad travelled near the Gas Works. He saw an obstacle in the four- foot, but could not discern what it actually was on account of the speed at which they were travelling around the curve. The Coroner thought there was a possibility that the lad might have opened the carriage door thinking that he was approaching the station, and wanted to be in readiness to get out. A verdict of "Accidental Death" was- returned.
