Criccieth Council. LOCAL SOLDIERS' WELFARE. ACCIDENT TO MR. J. T. JONES. The monthly meeting of Criccieth Urban Council was held on Monday night, present Councillors O1. T. Williams, chair- man; J. Solomon Griffiths, vice-chairman; Robert Davies J. Harlech Jones, Griffith Richards, E. C. Elds, D. M. Williams, Huw R. Gruffydd, T. Bnrnell, Dr. Glad- stone Jones, :and P. J. Bowen; John Humphreys, deputy clerk and the officials. Personal. The Chairman said a month ago they were sympathising with Councillor Richard Humphreys in his illness. No one dreamt then that the end was so near, and he was sure they all deeply regretted his death. Mr. Humphreys had attended the Council meetings faithfully to the best of his abi.ity. and he proposed that they convey their condolence to the widow and two sons. The Council assented by rising in their places. The Council, on the proposition of the Vice-Chairman seconded by Mr. Harlech Jones, conveyedi to the Chairman their sympathy in the illness of Mrs. Williams during the past six weeks. Mr. J. T. Jones. The Chairman said he was sure they were all sorry for the absence of Mr. J. T. Jones, Parciau, who was confined to the house as the result of a motor accident. Happily the accident was not as serious as it might have been. He moved that the Council should convey to Mr. Jones their sincerest hope for his speedy and complete recovery. (Hear, hear). Mr. Jones had been a member of the 'local authority, as well as other public authori- ties, for forty-three years, and as far as he was aware that was the first occasion for Mr. Jones to be absent from meetings of those authorities as the result of indis- position. Messrs. Griffith Richards and D. M. Williams seconded the proposition, which was unanimously agreed to. The Foreshore. Mr. William Eldwards, Sefton House, wrote applying for leave to peruse the lease relating to the foreshore held by the Council. The Deputy Qerk—There can be no objection provided Mr Edwards oeruses it at the Town Halll. It should not be taken from the Hall. Mr. Burneir proposed that i'eave should be given on that understanding, and the J proposition was agreed to. Mr. David Cadwaladr. 8, Castle-street, applied to the Council to make a reduc- tion in the fee for the use of the foreshore for hiring boats this summer, as he con- templated a bad season. After much discussion, it was resolved, on the proposition of Mr Solomon Griffith, seconded by Mr. Burnell, to inform Mr. Cadwaladr that the Council would meet him if the season turned outi to be poor. Downspouts. Mr. Griffith Richards proposed that in- structions should be given to the Council's workmen to clean the downspouts which ran under the pavements.—That was agreed to. Children's Services. The Children's Special Service Mission wrote asking for permission to hold child- ren's services as usual on the beach at Criccieth during August. Leave was given. on the proposition of Mr. Gruffydd, seconded by Mr. Harlech Jones one the same conditions as before. Mr Griffith Richards said certain visitors had complained about the services last season. Possibly the complainants were not religiously inclined. It must be said that the services last season were held rather close to the place where visitors usually congregated on the beach The Chairman said it was distinctly understood that the services were to be hdid far from the bathing grounds and were not to interfere with the visitors in any way. He was sure that the Surveyor would see that they kept to the conditions this season. Discharged Medically Unfit. Mr. Gwilym Williams, the Council's sur- veyor, who fought in Gallipoli with the Territorial Force and who was invalided home, has now been discharged medically unfit from the army. Mr. J. Harlech Jones moved a resolution congratulating Mr. Williams on doing his bit for his country and wishing him well on the resumption of his duties as sur- veyor and sanitary inspector. (Hear. hear). Mr. Griffith Richards seconded the pro- position, which was agreed to unanimously. Returning Soldiers. Machynlleth Council wrote stating that they were considering the question of furthering industries for the benefit of re- turning soldiers after the war and enquir- ing what steps were being taken by Cric- cieth Council in the matter. Mr. Huw R. Gruffydd said there was a danger of overlapping, and in view of General Owen Thomas's national scheme, which embraced proposals with regard to industries for broken warriors, he thought the Council should adhere to the national scheme. It was agreed to reply to that effect, Finance. The Finance Committee reported that there was L329 in the bank on the general: account. Bills and accounts totalling L142 were passed for payment. The Finance Committee recommended that a grant of £8 should be made from the foreshore licences account to meet ex- penses incurred by a committee of the Council. That was agreed to. Wernddu Brook. The Sanitary Committee reported having under consideration the question of cover- ing up Wernddu brook. Subsidence. The Surveyor stated he had relaid the kerb and channelling on the lower road in front of Caerwylan which had subsided for a length of about forty yards owing to the soft clay underneath. Part of the re- taining wall on the same road which col- lapsed when the main sewer was relaid in December had also been repaired. Water Supply. Mr. Griffith Richards was appointed chairman of the Water Committee. The (Jommittee recommended a general inspec- tion of water taps. Waenhelyg reservoir was stated to have been cleaned and the cracks filled in. Mr. Griffith Richards, for the Water Committee, moved that tenders should be invited for the supply of 450 feet of three- inch water mains to be laid from High- street (near Manchester House) to Bryn- bella. Mr. Robert Davies was strongly of opinion that three-inch was not adequate and moved that there should be four-inch pipes for 300 feet from High-street to Tyn- lian. Lon Newydd, and three-inch from the latter place to Brynme.la. The present main was two-inch. Mr. Richards accepted the amendment of Mr. Davies, which was then agreed to. The Surveyor thought three-inch would meet the case. The Chairman said the Water Com- mittee had now accepted Mr. Davies's amendment, and the matter could not be discussed further. Mr. Davies—I am certain we would be making a great mistake to go in for a three-inch pipe. For Our Soldiers. Mr. Burnell presented a report with re- gard to the work done by the Criccieth Working Party from November, 1915 to May, 1916. The 401 articles made included 171 pairs of socks, 34 shirts, 48 pyjamas, 73 scarves, 24 pairs of mittens, 19 bed jackets, 1 hot water bottle cover, and 1 knitted girdle. Mrs. J. E. Greaves re- ceived the articles for the Red Cross Society up to April, and Miss Thomas. Mynydd Ednyfed, for the Welsh troops. At present ha'if the articles were sent to the Welsh troops and half to the French wounded, per Miss Alice Williams, Penrhyndeu- draeth. In addition, at the start, gifts of shirts, socks, and pyjamas were sent to the wounded soldiers at Wern Hospital. The opportunity was taken of acknowledging the generosity of Mrs. Greaves in giving a large quantity of flannel and for sending, carriage paid at her own expense, all articles forwarded to the Red Cross head- quarters, which meant a considerable sum. The receipts totalled R64 Us. 10d., and the expenditure £ 49 13s. lid., leaving a balance in hand of JB14 17s. lid. Of the £49 13s. lid. spent on wool, flannel, etc., £32 6s. 2d was spent in Criccieth shops. Mr. Bowen said it was a most satisfac- tory report and moved a vote oi thanks to Mr. Burnell, which was seconded by Mr. Harlech Jones and agreed to. Two Vacancies. The Rev John Owen, M.A., wrote thank- ing the Council for their sympathy with him in his bereavement. The letter pro- ceeded Having now served on the Coun- cil for three years I now wish to resign. Will you pleaso to convey this wish to the Council. I find that I cannot do justice to all the appointments I have accepted and, being a minister, I feel that my first duty is towards the Church here and to the Connexion. Having attended so badly I am sure the Council will be less sorry to part with me than I am to resign my membership. Mr. Burnell said Mr. Owen had no doubt definitely made up his mind and he proposed that the resignation should be accepted with regret. The Chairman-With a record of appre- ciation of his services. He was of great assistance to the Council in certain matters. Mr Burnell-That is included in my proposition. Mr Owen for example, took deep interest in the work of the Sanitary Committee which as we knew is the best abused committee of the Council. The proposition was agreed to and Mr. Huw R. Gruffydd gave notice in favour of filling the two vacancies on the Council at the next meeting. Soldiers Advisory Committee. Dr. Gladstone Jones referred to a young soldier who had returned home to Criccieth three weeks ago discharged medically unfit and thought steps should be taken to ex- pedite the pension due to him. The Chairman said the soldier had received a grant of 10s that morning which would be continued weekly until his pension was settled. He might say that he had intended asking the Council to appoint a small advisory committee to whom local soldiers on their return home from the war invalided or discharged, could apply for advice and interim assistance pending the settl ement of their allowance or pen- sions. The Council had taken an active part in a recruiting campaign which had resulted in every eligible man in the urban district joining the Army or attesting, and it was their bounden duty to see to the wel- fare of their men when they returned home and were in need of advice or help. He moved the appointment of a committee. Dr. Gladstone Jones seconded the pro- position which was unanimously agreed to and the following were appointed.—The Chairman, Dr. Gladstone Jones, Messrs Griffith Richards, T. Burnell, J. T. Jones, D. M. Williams, Archdeacon Lloyd Jones, John Humphreys, Brontrevor; and the Rev. John Owen. Mr. Burnell, to act as convenor. General Thomas. Mr. Huw R. Gruffydd referred to 'the proposed removal of General Owen Thomas from the command of the Welsh Army at Kinmel and moved a resolution of protest Mr. Robert Davies seconded the pro- position which was supported by Mr. Bowen and unanimously agreed to.
LLANFROTHEN. FUNERAL.—The funeral took place on Monday at Ramoth Cemetery of Mrs. Elizabeth Williams, late of Glanywern, who died at her daughter's house at Bryn- crng. WHAT PRINTING COSTS. Upwards of four hundred printers from all parts of the United Kingdom met in conference in London last week, when questions relating to the cost of material and labour were fully discussed, and it was shewn that many kinds of paper, ink, and binding materials were costing from a hundred to three hundred per cent. more than before the war, and that the increases in wages, manufacturing expenses, and the dimin- ished output had meant an increase in the labour cost of twenty to thirty per cent.
National Eisteddfod. A PATRIOTIC OPPORTUNITY. Our advertising columns contain an announcement of the National Eisteddfod to be held at Aberystwyth on August 16th, 17th, and 18th. The third day will be devoted to a, unique feature in connection with the Eisteddfod, namely, a national singing festival which has been arranged on the suggestion of the Minister of Munitions. He is expected to pre- side. It is really through the initiative of Mr. Lloyd George that the Eisteddfod is being held this year instead of being further postponed owing to the war. The local promoters, backed up by the Eisteddfod Association, have to face unprecedented difficulties; but their course of 'action has been determined by the desire to make this year's gathering worthy of the opportunity and worthy of the patriotism of Wales. Not only is it intended to serve a patriotic object by aiding war funds, but it is also intended that the Eisteddfod and Gymanfa will be a patriotic stimulus in the national crisis. Dr. Allen, the principal musical adjudicator, in offering his services, gave a splendid indication of the spirit which animates the promoters of the Eisteddfod. "My wish," he stated, "is to be of some use in providing stimulating opportunities in music at such times as these. Though it has been necessary to curtail the competitions considerably, the pro- gramme of music arranged has been highly commended and interesting choral eon- tests -are expected. The competitions will appeal particularly to local choirs. In addition to the com- petitions, rare musical treats will be provided at the three evening concerts, when the Elisteddfod Choir, under the leadership of Mr. J. T. Rees, Mus. Bac., will perform such popular works as "The Revenge," "Deffro! Mae'n Ddydd," "Duw Sydd Noddfa," "Liife of Moses," and Welsh Airs. Prominent artistes have been engaged. The idea of holding the Gymanfa on the third day has been approved throughout the Principality, and* will, it is believed, attract a large and representative gathering. Professor David Evans has been offered and has accepted the conduefcorship for the day. Old Welsh hymn tunes, fifty- one in number, and two anthems, will be sung and copies of the programme will be ready shortly. Congregational choirmasters are requested to apply to the General Secretary for a supply of ccpies of the programme which are sold at the following prices:—Old Notation, 6d. each: Tonic Solfa, 4d. each. Entries for all the Eisteddfod competi- tions close on July 10th. Season tickets, price Ll., admitting to reserved seats at all the Eisteddfod meet- ings, evening concerts, and the Gymanfa are obtainable from the General Secretary and seats can be booked on and after August 1st at the Eisteddfod Office, Cam- brian Chambers, Aberystwyth. The ancient Gorsedd ceremonies will be performed on Wednesday and Thursdnv mornings on the beautiful and historic Castle Grounds.
The Silent Fleet
The Silent Fleet. NAVAL Oi-FICr K'S OPTIMISM. A lieutenant in the Royal Navy writing to his relative, Mr. Richard Davies, con- tractor, Tcwyn, (*ays:—"Much has hap- pened since 1 last wrote to you. I do not mean that I have seen any Germans; but we see wonderful things every day. Yesterday for instance 1 was watching a seaplane manoeuvring 5,000 feet up in the air. This morning a submarine was exercising within 100 yards of us. I sup- pose you heard of the German raid on Lowestoft. We heard of it two hours before the raid started. That was, we heard of the intention of raiding, so we dashed with all speed in the hope of cutting them off before they returned fu their own waters; but they had a good start. Anyhow, we did our best. If we had intercepted them that day I know jolly well, -and so did the Germans, who would have got the worst of it. Unfor- t'unaitely, they managed to sneak away behind (the shelter of their mine fields. We will catch them, though, shortly and then look out." Writing later, he says "Things are running smoothly on the whole and we are kept fairly busy. You probably read of the Zepp. that was shot down by our ships in the North Sea. I had the good fortune to be on the spot at the time, though we were not allowed to fire as the ships that were engaging it were quite capable of coping with the situation. I simply danced with joy when I saw the monster coming down. When she landed on the water one of our submarines appeared and torpedoed her. We also saw two mines the same day and would have ran into one if I had not seen it in time. How is everyone at Towyn? I expect I shall not be able to get home until September but better late than never." The writer went out to Australia and entered the mercantile marine, where he obtained his certificate. He came over with a troopship containing Australian Volun- teers for the front and entered the Roval Navy.
PWLLHELI WOUNDED.—News has been received that Private D. Jones, Carnarvon House, has been wounded in France. SEA FISHERIES.-The value of wet fish landed in Pwllheli and district during the quarter ended March this year was £ 957. In the corresponding quarter last year it was 9473 only. PERSONAL.—Mr. D. Glyn Owen, son of Mr and Mrs Owen Owen, the Bank, who was with the R.A.M.C. in Gallipoli for many months and was invalided to this country some time ago is making steady progress and hopes to be sufficiently well to leave hospital for home shortly.

Dolgelley Guardians. DISPUTE AMONG BARMOUTH MEMBERS. On Saturday, Mr. H. H. Disley, Corris, chairman, presiding. There were also present Mrs. Pughe, Helygog; Mrs. Morgan, Messrs. D. E. Davies, Edward Williams, William Owen, Barmouth; Owen Ellis, GeUilwyd; Griffith Price, Evan Pugh, Llanfachreth; Morgan Williams, Arthog; Griffith Powell, Llanddwyweis; Owen Griffiths, Llanymawddwy; David Jones, Dyffryn; Griffith Owen, Llanaber; R. A. Roberts Prvsglwyd; L. Fielding, Abergynolwyn William Hughes, Lewis Jones, Talyllyn; Lewis Price, Iianelltyd; I James Lewis, R. C. Evans, O. 0. Roberts, Dolgelley; and R. Guthrie Jones, clerk. On the proposition of Mr. R. C. Evans, a vote of condolence was passed with Mr. David Jones. King's Mill, on the death of a brother who occupied an important posi- tion in America, and with Mr. Griffith Griffiths, Dinas Mawddwy, on the death of his brother. Mr. W. T. Lloyd. relieving officer, re- pot-ted the result of his inquiries, as directed at the previous meeting, with re- gard to a bill of 10s. for attendance on a woman at Barmouth who was alleged to have possessed money before her death. Mrs. Morgan said she knew that the woman had money in her purse six weeks before her death. She had nothing to withdraw from what she had said. If her word was doubted, or if it was thought that she was not doing her duty in the matter, she did not want to remain on the Board. She did not believe it was neces- sary for the ratepayers to pay any of the expenses incurred. Apart from the money which she knew the woman had, what had become of the furniture in the house;, She had sinufy asked a simple question of the Relieving Officer, because she knew that the deceased objected so stronglv to be re- lieved and to be buried by the parish. She (Mrs. Morgan) had a witness who had seen the money and would produce a written statement from her at the next meeting if the matter was deferred. All she wanted was fair play and she always endeavoured to act fairly. To make it a personal matter was a shame on humanity. She certainly had no wish to introduce personal feeling. Mr. D. E. Davies said it was not a per- sonal matter as far as he was concerned, though there was a grave reflection on an individual. He was interested in the# matter because it concerned the rate- payers. If there was any money it ought to be made known. It seemed to him Mrs Morgan was inconsistent in her statements about the amount of money. He had asked the Relieving Officer to be careful in making fuJll inquiries as to the money. Mrs. Morgan had not done all that she could during the past month to assist the Relieving Officer in making the necessary inquiries. It was not fair to say that the Relieving Officer had acted on his own, be- cause the Medical Officer had notified that the woman, who was eighty-eight years of age. was not able to look after herself, and it was the Relieving Oincer's duty to attend to her. He was not surprised that Mr. James Lewis supported at the previous meeting because he was always ready to do so. An undeserved reflection was made on Mr. Rees Jones, who had done so much to help the poor of Barmouth. Mr. Edward Williams said he was aston- ished when the question was raised at the previous meeting, because anybody who knew Mr. Rees Jones knew that he was above suspicion as to his integrity. It was important in the interests of the rate- payers to know if there was money. Mr. James Lewis said as Mr. Davies had mentioned his name he would like to ex- plain that all he desired was to have the matter fully investigated. There was no reflection intended in any way on Mr Rees Jones. He only wanted to act fairly to all concerned. Mrs. Morgan said she had no knowledge that Mr. Rees Jones was connected with the matter and had no intention of reflect- iiig on him. She had asked the Relieving Officer, a8 she was entitled to do. if there was not enough money to pay the burial expenses? Deceased told her several times that she did not want to be buried by the parish. She could not understand why so much excitement was aroused. Mr. William Owen said there was no excitement; but it was absolutely neces- sary to knovri where, if any, was the purse of gold. Mr. Rees Jones told him there was only B2 and that he had paid the re- mainder of the expenses. Mr. David Jones seconded the proposi- tion to defer the matter for further in- quiries, which was agreed to. Mr. N. J. Richards, Fronheulog. Llwyn- gwril, rate collector, wrote intimating that he was called up for military service. He was asked to nominate a successor. The Guardians expressed their good wishes for him. At the annual meeting of the (Boarding Out Committee, Mr. R. C. Evans was appointed chairman and Mrs. Morgan re- appointed secretary. The Chairman re- marked that Mrs. Morgan deserved praise for the active interest she took in the wel- fare of the children boarded out. A meeting of the Rural District Council was held in the morning, with Messrs Owen Ellis, Gellilwyd, in the chair; Griffith Price, Corsygarnedd, vice-chairman; and R. Foulkes Jones, clerk. Mr. Dangerfield's solicitors wrote com- plaining of the state of the parish road giving access to Oorsygedol Home Farm. The matter was left to the Surveyor (Mr W. Williams). The Sanitary Inspector (Mr. John Edwards) reported having prepared estimates of the cost of providing several farm houses in Llanegryn parish with water. It was agreed to urge the Pen- iarth Estate to proceed, as promised, with the provision of a water supply for Tymawr, Tyifllan, and Llwynfynwent, and to approve the intention of carrying out the schemes to supply four other farms. Correspondence was read with the Great Western Company respecting the condition of Drwsynant Station house which has been under consideration for over two y It was agreed to obtain a further report after the expiry of the statutory notice served. A detailed report on hous- ing conditions in the district was given by the Medical Officer (Dr. Hugh Jones), affld the Inspector. Plans of a bungalow at Fairbourne and of an addition to a cottage near Maosybryner, on the Nannau Estate, were approved. A Member's Departure. The Chairman referred to the departure of Mr. William Hughes, headmaster of Tvnyberth Council School, and a member of the Council, who has been called up under the Military Service Act. He had been given conditional exemption by the local Tribunal; but the Appeal Tribunal!, on the decision of the Central Tribunal, had ordered him to join. Mr. Hughes had attested, and the appeal on his behalf was made by the Education Authority on educational grounds. The Vice-Chairman, Mr. Griffith Powell and other members, while regretting his departure, expressed appreciation of the services which Mr. Hughes had rendered in his position of schoolmaster and as a representative of the ratepayers. Mr. Hughes suitably acknowledged the compliment paid to him. At the meeting of the Board of Guard- ians a resolution was also passed, on the proposition of Mr. R. C. Evans, expressing good wishes for Mr. Hughes.

White Phillips as chairman and Mr. G. G. Davies as vice-cnairman, and the Attendance Committee appointed the Rev. D. F. Roberts as chairman and Mr. Richard Roberts, Brontecwyn, as vice- chairman. An application by one from Cricqtieth to send his son to the Higher Grade School because he had a high opinion of Festiniog schools was refused. It was stated that the attendance at the rural schools was higher than it had been since October, 1914.—Mr. R. T. Jones asked what was the rulp as to children leaving school?—The Clerk said the rule was against children under thirteen years leaving. Thfl Committee confirmed the transfer of Miss Fanny C. Owen from Slate Quarries School to Glanvpwll School instead of a teacher who had married: and the transfer of Mr. Lewis Jones from the Higher GradP to Slate Quarries School instead of Mr. j. Jones Roberts, on the understanding that Mr. Jones gave two afternrons to the Higher Grade School. Miss Kitty Roberts was appointed to Slate Quarries School. It was stated that the appointment of a school attendance officer for the urban schools had been vested by the County Education Committee in the District Committee; and arrangements were made to make the appointment so that the new officer might start duties after the holi- days. Mr. R. T. Jones said Mr. Moses Jones. who was deputising for his father cs rural attendance officer, was doing the work excellently. Hi
THE QUESTION OF HEALTH
THE QUESTION OF HEALTH. There is an old saying A stitch in time saves nine," and if upon the first symptoms of anythng being wrong with our health we were to resort to some simple but proper mean. of correcting the mischief, nine tenths of the suffering that invades our homes would be avoided. The body is a machine full of intricate and delicate mechanicism and when one part is im- peded it gradually throws the whole out of gear unless it is quickly put right. A cold, a chill, a touch of indigestion or liver complaint, a pain in the loins or the little indiscretions to which in the hurry and turmoil of life we are all prone (such as eating too quickly, not taking sufficient rest, worrying too much over our troubles, etc.. etc.), all tend to bring about a dead lock in some part of the human mechanicism or a weakening or slowing down of the whole. A good bracing tonic, one that will revitalise and will wind up all the mach- inery, will at such tmes work greater wonders than a long course of nauseous medicines. A dose of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters taken when you feel the least bit out of sorts is just that stitch in time." The question of health is a matter which is sure to concern us at one time or another, especially when Influenza is so prevalent as it is just now. so it is well to know what to take to ward off an attack of this most weakening disease, this epidemic, catarh, or cold of an aggravated kind to combat it whilst under its baleful influence, and particularly after an attack, for then the system is so lowered as to be liable to the most dangerous of complaints Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters is acknow- ledged by all who have given it fair trial to be the best specific remedy for dealing with Influenza in all its various stages, being a preparation skilfully prepared with Quinine and accompanied with other blood purifying and enriching agents, suitable for the liver, digestion, and all those ail- ments requiring tonic strengthening and nerve increasing properties. It is invalu-' able for those suffering with col. pneumonia, or any serious illness, or prostration caused by sleeplessness, or worry of any kind, when the body has a general feeling of weakness and lassitude. Don't delay, but try it now. Send for a copy of the pamphlet of testimonials, which carefullv read and consider well, then buy a bottle (sold in two sizes, 2s. 9d. and 4s. 6d.) at your nearest Chemist or Stores, but when purchasing see that the name "Gwilym Evans" is on the label, stamp and bottle, for without which none are genuine.
