ISuggested Bigger Plough
Suggested Bigger Plough. DECISION OF SHREWSBURY CONFERENCE. The most important business at a meeting of the Montgomeryshire War Agricultural Executive Committee at Welshpool, on Mon- day, was to receive a report of the Shrews- bury conference to consider the policy to pur- sue in view of the demand for increased ploughing. Mr. J. Marshall Dugdak presided in the absence of the CkairafB -i# W. Forrester Addie). Mr. Edward Jones said the conference proved a great sucoetfs, and he thought it was very fortunate that they had decided to call it. It was soon apparent that every repre sentative was in full sympathy with the reso- lution sent from Montgomeryshire, which was approved with some minor alterations to make it of general application. The unanimous opinion was that no addi- tional land should be broken up this year, but that there should be a sort of levelling up of those counties tKat did not reach their 1918 quota. It is felt that after so disastrous a harvest, with a large amount of corn still un- secured, and much of it of little value, it was futile to ask farmers to plough more this year. A considerable amount of discretion would have to be exercised by executive committees in issuing orders so-as ti equalise things. They hoped and trusted that there would be a patriotic feeling exhibited by all agricul- turists towards assisting the country at the present critical stage, and that they would do all in their power to produce as much food as possible. Captain J. M. Naylor said. it would be a' pity if a wrong impression went out. The resolution said that "it was impossible to guarantee any increases over the area ploughed in 1918," but that did not mean that the committee did not intend to keep up to the mark those farmers who did not do their full duty last year. Gg|&t stress was also laid at the conference the point that it was not in any way directed against the policy of the Government, but was called merely to make clear their position. No one could look for a more patriotic spirit and. a more com- plete understanding of the needs of the country than was shown at the conference. The report was adopted. Thereport was a dopted.

Viscount Grey made his first public appear- ance since he retired, with Mr. Asquith, from the Government, at a meeting in London on Thursday, when he spoke of peace being within sight," but not yet within reach. A good deai of significance is attached to the late foreign secretary's re-emergence into a-e- five political life, but it will be noted that he strongly urged the putting aside of controver- sial issues and uniting in support of the Government in prosecution of the war. He claimed that the time had come for the pro- ject of a League of Nations to receive a agw measure of attention and study.

I was under medical treatment for some time, and, getting no better, began to be downhearted, whan a friend persuaded me to try 'Clarke's Blood Mixture.' I found myself getting better before I had finished the first bottle, so i continued with it until I had taken six bottles. I should have written before, but I wantGd to tie oure it was a permanent cure first. It is now some years since I was cured, and I have neyev had tha slightest signs of any return."
