Cuarding Reservoirs.—At the County Council on Thursday., the lollowinu resoui- tion was subnr'tved from the Portmadoc Council: "That the attention of the County Councils of Carnarvonshire and Merion- ethshire be drawn to the fact that the sources of the water supply for the dis- trict of Vnvscynhaiarn at Llyn Telwyn, in the county of ^Merioneth, and Llyn Garn Bach, in the county of Carnarvon, are un- guarded, and that the respective County Councils be requested to make the neces- sary arrangements to have the reservoirs referred 'to protected against contamina- tion by enemies. It was decided to take no action, it being stated that the reser- voirs belonged to a private company. Change of Name.—At the County Council on Thursday the following resolu-i tion was submitted by 1 nyscynhaiaru Crban Council, that, subject to the sanc- tion of Carnarvonshire County Council, 'the name of 'the Ynyseynhaiarn Urban District Council be changed to "Port- niadoc Urban District C-ounel, and that an application for such consent as pro- vided by Local Government- Act. 1894, be. made to the County Council. Further, that for the sake of uniformity, it is' desirable that the name of the parish of; Ynyseynhaiarn, whose area co-extensive; with the urban district..should also he; changed and called the Parish oi Port- madoc.—Alderman Maurice Jones thought it a, great shame to change these old "Welsh names. There was something poetic about, them.—Mr. Hugh Pilchard: Can-J not we compromise by calling the place; Porthmadoe ?" (Laughter.) Alderman Jones Morris thought they might follow the example of the Ecclesiastical Autbori-' 'ties who had divided the parish. The pro-i posal was carried with seven dissentients, C'aslyn Angling Association. fn ani interesting report for the year com-, piled by Mr. David Jones, the lion, seere-; tary, it is stated that owing to lack of funds one permanent bailtiff only is now employed; but before the end of the. present season it is hoped to have enough: funds to employ a second bailiff tempnr- I arily if nek permanently. Through the kindness of Mr. J. P. Hall, Deudraeth; Castle, warrants as water bailiffs have been obtained for three of his private keepers. This season and last season lInglers have had fairly good sport and those conversant wiith the river have had) Some heavy fish. "The Committee desire; to place on record their appreciation of the financial support and interest taken in the welfare of the Association by Mr. Jonathan Diaviies, Portmadoc, and Capt. I Higson, Craflwyn. who with Mr. W. B. Cray. late of Glangwynant. transferred, that, most valuable stretch of the left bank of the river above Aberglaslvn Pass up to Beddgelert to the ca.'e of the Association. Mr. Gray having departed from the dis-j trict and Capt. Higson having withdrawn from being a party to the lease, the con-j siderat/ion now devolves on lr. navies himself. This is manifestly unfair and "Unless the residents of Beddgelert (who are. directly benefited by the fishing rights over; this part of the river) come forward to relieve Mr. Daviies from a part at least of I the consideration. it is to be feared this i valuable asset will be lost to 'the Assoc a- tion."

Missionary.—The Rev. D. Victor, who has been missionary at Likoma in British Central Africa, preached at Tremadoc and i the Church Room on Sunday on behalf of the Universities Mission to Central Africa. From the front.-In a letter dated June 20th from France by Private Willie Wil- liams to his parents (Mr. and Mrs. David Williams, Llys Efiion), he says that he is in good health and happy. Private Williams, who lis with the Canadian troops, says the weather is fine and the trenches dry. On the 19th the call came to occupy an aban- doned British trench. They started at three in the afternoon and got to their journey's end seven hours later; but were unable IO settle down until two in the morning. At dawn the Germans began to shell the trench and it was impossible to sleep comfoAtably. They then dug right into the soil when 'to their astonish- ment they came across the bodies of four Knglish "soldier's who apparently were killed when the trench was abandoned. There were no identification marks about either of the four bodies. The first line of the Germans was less than thirty yards from the British trench. The British bomb throwers would throw bombs into the German firs7,, line and the latter would return the compliment,, bomb-throwing being particularly indulged in at night. A Pwllheli soldier named Griffiths, a shoemaker by trade. was wounded on the night of the 19th and had been removed to hospital where he was doing as well as could bo expected. The troops were longing for the time when the Germans had been crushed and the war was over. Pte. Williams hopes to have a few days home soon.

BARMOUTH Visitors. The Birmingham Wesley Guild Council have decided to make Bar- mouth their headquarters in August, The Guild Magazine for June contains an illus- trated article on Barmouth district by "The Hamhler." The. writer is Mr. H. Browning Button, who was for some years resident at Barmouth before he removed to Birmingham, where he now represents l:he interests of the Cambrian Railways. Mr. Button thus writes of Barmoutn:— "A centre more conveniently situated it would be difficult to find. The town is partly bUlih on the rocky slopes of a steep hill i. veritable Gibraltar,—and the Teutons would receive a warm reception if the hill were fortified, which it is not. Xo. the Barmouth residents are a peace- loving people, thenr only anxiety being to relieve visitors of the contents of their purses bv legitimate means, of course, a fair quid pro quo being given in the shape of good food, residence, and .incomparable soenerv. We can' speak very confidently about" Barmouth because it was our good, fortune some time ago to spend a long residence in this lovely neighbourhood. There is a good service of coast trains north and south enabling visitors to reach many beautiiful spots by an early afternoon y .11 ti-, i ii without the necessity for leaving after breakfast and going away for the whole cf the dav." After describing tours to ("ader Idi-is,* Torrent Walk, Harlech to Cader Idris, Toncnt Walk, Harlech Castle. Pass of Aberglaslyn, Pwllheli, \bervstwvth, Devil's Bridge, eVtc., the article concludes We venture to think we have, written enough to induce our readers to begin to think about packing for their summer holiday at beautiful Bai- mouth, safe from Zeppelins and Gerinamc raid's—'in the land of mountains, touents, castles, and song."

At a special Police Court, on Alonday at Penrhyndeudraeth, before G. H. Ellis. ESTI' in the chair; Sir A. Osmond AVilliams, Captain H. W. lvirkby, W. H. More, and T. Lloyd Pritchard, Esqrs., the following persons were charged by In- spector Owen, Blaenau Festiniog, with having committed a breach of the Lighting Order of April 12th, 1915. made under the Defence of the Realm Act, by failing to have the in-door lights of their dwelling houses obscured so as to be invisible from the outside:—J. Ivor Jones, Fair View, Harlech, grocer; Airs. E. AVilliams, 2, Bronwen-terrace, Harlech, lodging house keeper; Miss E. Jones, 3, Bronwen- terrace. Harlech, lodging house keeper: Daniel A. Jones, 5, Bronwen-terrace. Harlech, schoolmaster; J. Carter Camp- bell, J.P., 6. Bronwen-terrace, Haadech, gentleman. The five defendants admitted the offence, and Air. Campbell said he was unaware that the order applied to the West Coast. P.C. Nathaniel Davies, Harlech, said about ten on the night of June 22nd he was on duty on the golf links when he observed lights in several houses in Bron- wen-terrace and also Fair View. All those houses were on an eminence and were in full view of the sea. At 10-20 he visited No. 2. Bronwen-terrace and told Mrs. I AVilliams that the presence of lights in her house would be reported. He also visited the four other defendants and made a like statement to them. He might say that he had previously warned Mr. Ivor Jones Mr. A. Carter Campbell told witness that lie had been away from Harlech for some time and did not know about the order. AV itness replied that it was a general order and that he ought to know. Witness added that the copies of the order had been posted all over the district and the I order had also been read out in each place of worship in the whole district. Inspector Owen explained that as the result of numerous complaints about lights on a night in Harlech, the Chief « unstable had taken action and, with a iiew to putting an immediate stop to it, a special police court had been convened to deal with the five cases. The Chairman--Yes, it must be stopped. It is a very serious thing. Air. Carter Campbell said he left Har- lech on April 12th and did not return until June 19th. In the meantime he was in London and Edinburgh and was unaware of the order being applicable to the West Coast until the constable called at his residence on the. night of, June 22nd. He was quite astonished and might say that he did not consider his household had had a. far warning. He might add that, being a magistrate, he hoped the Bench would give him credit that he would have done his utmost to comply with the order had he known it was applicable to the West Coast. The Chairman—There is this to be said. As a magistrate you ought to have known of the order. Mr. Carter Campbcll You must accept my word that I did not know. The Hench deliberated privately and decided to fine each defendant £ 2 2s. The Chairman said the one was a. very lenient one, but the Bench wished to give warning that any future cases brought before them would be very severly dealt with. Sir Osmond AVilliams asked if the ,atten- tion of the police had been drawn to the firing of gorse at night on the Merioneth- shire hilils in that neighbourhood? Inspector Owen—Yes. Sir Osmond-Has action been taken ? Very severe strictures were passed at Pwll- heli the other day over gorse fires in this county: Inspector Owen said it was most difficult to trace the culprits. Special efforts had been made to get at them, and it was hoped before long to bring one or two cases home. Captain Kirkby said there had been re- peated cases of gorse- fire on the hills between Penrhvn and Harlech. He was afraid farmers themselves were the cul- prits, firing the gorse for the sake of the pasture. A prosecution was the only thing that would put an end to the prac- tice.

MORRIS EVANS, Festiniog, does not doubt his ability to CURE CONSUMPTION more than any other ailment. You need not leave your home, or feel despondent because several doctors have failed, even if one prescribed forty bottles of medicine. Read the follow- ing and allow it to speak for itself. The advice is for you also and should evoke gratitude. Vedwl View, Mount Pleasant, Messrs. Morris Evans & Co., Llanrwst. Dear Sirs,—Three years ago the illness of my ten year old son caused us much anxiety. Several medical men pre- scribed for him, one to the extent of 24 bottles, but instead of improving he gradually became worse and weaker day by day. Eventually he became so weak as to be unable to stand, and the doctor testified that be was in an advanced stage of Consumption, and that the hope of recovery was faint. I was then persuaded to give your medicine a trial, viz., rubbing night and morning with Morris Evans' Household Oil, and taking Morris Evans' Capsules. I followed the directions, faithfully, and was gratified to find a daily improvement in his condition. Three months from commencing the treatment with your medicines he was quite healthy, and has remained so since. I honestly believe that he would have succumbed only for your medicines. Since then I have been glad to testify to the efficacy of Morris Evans' preparations to all who suffer similarly. I feel it my duty to bear witness to their value, and you are at liberty to make what use you wish of the above. Yours very gratefully, H. WILLIAMS, The Royal London Insurance, District Superintendent. Finsbury Lane, London. About 10/- worth per month will be sufficient to use. Write to MORRIS EVANS & Co. for full particulars.
