Mae enw Mr. T. H. Middleton, ysgrif- enydd cvnorthwyol y Bwrdd Amaethyddol, yn adnabyddus i lawer o amaethwyr Cymru. Bu am amser yn athro amaeth- yddol yng Xgholeg Aberystwyth. Ar gais Arglwydd Selborne, .llywydd y Bwrdd, ar y pryd, parotodd Mr. Middleton adrodd- iad ar gvnnydd amaethyddiaeth yn yr Almaen. Gwelir bwriad Arglwydd Sel- borne vn y dywediad hwn o'i eiddo—pe bai amaetfiyddiaeth yn Germani ihebl gyli- hyddu a gwella'n fwy nac yn y wlad hon rhwrnr 1895 a 1915 pallai adnoddau bwyd yn holl Ymherodraeth Germani yn mhell cyn yr eilfed flwvddyn o'r rhyfel. Yn ei dyb ef ymladda Germani gymaint yn ne.rth ei chyfundrefn amaethyddol ag y gwna ar ei ohvCnndrefn filwrol. DengVc, fiBgyrau Mr. Middleton fod cynnyrch Germani wedi cynhyddu'n bn.rhaol yn ystod y deugain mlynedd ddiweddaf. Priodolir y cynydd hwn i'r drefn a'r cynllun iabwysiadwyd yn Germani drwy gefnogiad y Llywodraeth. Cynhyrcha ffermwyr Germani gymaint o cereals a thatws yr acer a ffermwyr Prydain, a llawer mwy o gynyrch o bob cant o aceri o dir wedi ei wrteithio. Cynhyrchir llawn cymaint o gig a dwbl y llaeth, a bwydir 30 i 35 y cant mwy o bobl yn Ger- mani ar bob cant o aceri nac yn y wlad hon, er nad yw'r tir na'r hinsawdd mor ffafriol. Cyfrifir am y gwahaniaeth yn mesur y cynhyrch gan y ffaith fod dwy ran o bob tair o'r tir yn Mhrydain yn borfa o'i gyferbynu a llai na'r drydedd ran yn Germani. Dyna yw'r prif reswm roddir am y gwahaniaeth, pa ffordd bynag yr esbonir ef; ond wrth gwrs ceir llawer o resymau eraill, megys cydweithrediad, addysg, ac amgylchiadau ffurfiol y wlad, yr oil wrth reol a threfn swyddogol. Mag y rhan fwyaf o ffermwyr Germani yn berchfttlogion eu tir a mantais arall ganddyhit yn yr amgylchiadau neillduol Oedd iod y cyflogail'n isel oherwydd ami- der gweithwyr. Wedi'r cwbl ystyrift Mr. Middleton fod y gwahaniaeth yn y cyn- hyrch yn fwy o ran mesur ha i rinwedd. Mao'n bosihl i Brydain ddysgu rhywfaint o'r gyfundrefn fabwysiadwyd yn Germani 1 hyrwyddo amaethyddiaeth; ond pa mor hwyrfrydig bynag ydynt nid oes gan ffermwyr Prydain ddim achos i gywilyddio o gymharu medr ac egwyddor eu bywyd arferol a'r Ellmyn.

Stephens, Llancyn- felin; William Thomas. Parcel Canoi and, Hugh Hughes, clerk. Jr. De Boinville presented a report on I his superintendence of Rorth water supply, from which it appeared that there were' leakages. In many the defects 1 noticed had been remedied. The state of the reservoir was not satisfactory, the level of the water having trone down. The report was referred to the local members to be dealt with. Mr. W, T. Lewis said it was important to safeguard the water supply. He lmder- stood that there were arrears of £ 30 on the water rents for last year. There was! no reason for any arrears, because every-! body in Borth could afford to pay for the. water. As there were various complaints, he thought it would be an advantage to lnve one official for local purposes instead of having a number of men doing different work. Mr. Daniel Jenkins—Do you want a bo-o'igli surveyor? Mr. Lewis—I do not care you call him- but we want one responsible official! to de the work required definitely. The present arrangements are costly and in- efficient. Mr John Richards proposed that one officii] should be appointed to do an the work reouired and th It the existing i arrangement?) should] be dispensed with. Forth. he said, was oil! a glorified shantv. (L Thee was no need for h;df a dozen officials to live on the rates of the V people. One man could do trie whole work. Mr. F. J. Evans—And be the boss of the whole show. Mr. V> T. Lewis-He will be subject to supervision. Mr Richards—There is no reason why he cannot collect the rubbish as well as the rates. Tliere is more rubbish than rates in .Borth. (Laughter). It was decided to terminate the present appointments and to invite applications for the combined post. A water rate to cover £433 expenses at h was signed, as well as C69 5s. foi. Tr.iiesin. Mr. John James proposed that the charge of £65 special expenses incurred in connection with Capel Sion water should be chained on ILfanbadsMi Upper and Lower parishes, according to their asses- abte values Mr. David Jones opposed I the proposal. In reply to questions, the Inspector (Mr. James Hughes) explained l l*-t all the consumers were in the upper parcel and the lower ratepayers had no Ivntfit.

Blaenau Festiniogs Loss
Blaenau Festiniog's Loss. CAPT. ROGER D'ARCY WHITTAKEll. There seems t0 lie little doubt that Cap- tain and Adjutant Roger D'Arcy Whit- taker, son of Mrs. Whittaker of Hastings and of the Craig Ddu Slate Quarries Com- I and of the Craig Ddu Slate Quarries Com- puny, Blaenau l^estiniog, who was reported missing, fell on the 30th June. Mrs Whit- taker has received many letters of sym- pathy from the officers of the gallant man's regiment, in which they speak in hioh praise of him. ° In a letter received from Col. Spurrell lie says:—"He put his whole heart into his work, and thereby gained the respect of every officer and man in the regiment, and I might equally say of the Brigade, for Major Neville Lytton writes this morning: 'Your old friend Whittaker was supremely courageous. He was wounded rather badly, and he went to bavel hi* wound dressed, then returned to his men or tried to do so. Could you transmit to his people this expression of my unbounded admiration of the gallant fellow?' Your son's loss is a bitter blow to all who knew him." It is believed that he fell side by side I with Captain Humble-Crofts, shot pro- I)ably by machine gun bullet while leading his men'.

His father and an- other brother are also with the colours in France. Mrs. John Roberts, Springfield-terrace, Blaenau Festiniog, received official news recently that her eldest son (Private John Roberts) had been killed in action. She doubted the accuracy of the report be- cause she had received a letter from him bearing a date subsequent to the date he was reported to have been killed, and since then she has received a letter from another soldier son saying he had seen Robert some days after the date of his reported death.

He is in hospital in Liverpool. The report published that Pte. Richard Evans, son of Mr. Morris Evans, Madoc- street, Portmadoc, at one time chauffeur with the late Dr. H. R. Griffith, has had his leg amputated is incorrect. He has been severely wounded in thie leg, but thare is every reason for hoping that amputa- tion will not be necessary.
