The Master's report showed that the num- ber of inmates in the House was 55 against 61 in the corresponding fortnight last vear: um grants numbered 27 against 84 in the corresponding fortnight last year. Divine service was held by the Rev Philip Jones POTTERING OVER A PORTER. The Chairman -said they had two applica- j tions fo rthe post of porter and they had de- ended at the last meeting there should be no fresh application entertained.—The Clerk said the applicant from Llandovery had written to state that he withdrew his application.— The CIiafi-man said they had two testimonials with regard to John Evans, of Brynamman One was from Mr J. Vaughan, and the other from Mr Williams, Bryn House, both of whom spoke highly of the applicant. Evans's op- plication stated that he was 42 years of age ^nd asked for 25s a week, or 15s and all found.—Jt was pointed out that the applicant was in the room and he was asked to leave.— iMrs Roberts proposed and Mr J. Richards seconded that they should readvertise for that day fortnight.—Mr Matthews wanted to know -do that.—The Chairman said he did notthink they were ibound to appoint that day. They were only to consider the appli- cations.—Mr J, Bevan said they had to satis- fy themselves first that the Applicant Evans would suit them.—iMr Gomer Harris was pro- ceediing to move that they should appoint Evans, when Mr Matthews asked that the testimonials should be read once more.-Illhe Chairman pointed out that, both persons who gave the testimonials were responsible per- sons.—Mr Gomer Hams said that according to what was ruled last time. they should have an interview with the applicant, and it was only right they should appoint him. He pro- posed they should do so.— Chairman: At the salary he asks?—Rev Edred Jones; Before we decide upon the appointment it is only fair to carry out what we settled a fortnight ago and have an interview with the applicant.— Mr J. L. Williams pointed out that he was asking a salary of R65 or 15s a week and all found. They had never paid more than £ 40. —Chairman: I think the proper thing first of all is to have an interview.—In answer to Mr D. W. Lewis, it was stated they paid £26 a year and all found to the last porter.—The applicant was then called in again. Various questions were put to him.—Mr L. N. Powell asked him if the wages he asked. for was the lowest he would acm:pt?-T-he Chairman in- formed him what the last portetr was paid.— Mr Matthews; And you are asking 15s a week and all found. Are you willling to reduce that?—Mr J, Richards did not think jt was fair to ask him. It waa out of order. They should not expect anything different from the man to what he had stated. It was a (I)argain.-Rev Edred Jones thought all was irrevelant. They had to interview the man and they could discuss those questions again. Mr J. L. Williams asked the applicant if he had any experience in that class of work.- Applicant: No, sir.—Chairman What h$ye you been doing?—Applicant said he had been working underground, then for eight years he had been an insurance agent, and after- wards doing odd jobs—Mr Herbert asked if he was able to cut hair and shave. AnDli- j cant: Yes, sir.—Mr Richards asked if he had oaquired about the duties he would have to perfonn.- YN, he had asked two or three that had been in the, workhouse.— Chairman: Have you been to the workhouse.—Applicant: No- —Chairman: Have you made a^y en- quiries through the master as to your duties, —Applicant: I have only been asking people that nave been inmates.—Mr J. L. Williams: Have you any family ?—Applicant: A wife. that is aH.-Chairman; Is your wife in good health.—Applicant; Xo, not in good ileal I,- Chairman: Just the same botli of you. Are you not in good health ApPlicant; EQ. 1 should not be here if I was.—Chairman: Do you think you are strong enough? Are you aware you have to tacjjle the tramps?- I think I can do that—IJe was then 4sked to retire,—Mr D. W. Lewis begged to secontd J Mr. Gomer Harries.—Mrs Roberts I have made one.—Chairman; I regard every other before now as null and void.—Mr J. Bevan would like to know what was the ground of Mis Roberts moving to defer the appoint- ment and to re-advertise.—Mrs Roberts replied that now they had not the two appli- cations expected—Mr J Bevan: That is not our fan#.—Mr Gomer Harnes proposed that they appoint him. Considering the rat pi I lwÜg" the difference between what the hist porter received and he was asking was very little. The former porter would not have remained for the money he was gettiiig.-M.r J Riohardsi; I don't see the cost of living a anything to do with it.—Mr Powell We can deal with that 1 a tor o»j.—It was then put to the yote. and the amendment to readvertise was carried by 15 rotes to 11.—Mr J. Bevan proposed they should state in the next ad- vertisement the wages.—^Mr W. E. Richards seconded.—Chairman: I agree. I was strongly in favour of it last time.—Mr Bevan 1 hope we shall do bettor next time.—Mr J. L. Williams: Put the salary not to exceed a certain sum.—Mr Powell suggested it be at £ 26 a year and all found.—Mr Herbert sug- gested £ 30.—There was a long wrangle over it.-)fr Matthews would offer C32 10s.—The Chairman pointed out the need of economy.— Eventually for offering R30 and all found. 25 voted, and the motion was declared carried. MAINTENANCE. A report from the Maintenance Committee was under consideration. At its meeting the Board was recommended to adopt the follow- ing resolution that where persons were in arrears for more than four months, or to the amount of £ 2, an order ■should be procured against such persons. MORE OF THE PORTER. The mother of the former porter who had joined the Colours, asked the Board to be good enough to allow her half his wages, as if ihe was spared he hoped to return to his duties She noticed that other Boards were doing —The Chairman sa,i-d that. the question had been before them a month a.go. He got his allowance from the War Office and they thought they were not legally or morally called upon to pay.—Mr J. Bevan: I thought the Master said the porter did not intend to come back.—Mr L. N. Powell: She is surely as well off to-day as when her son was here Inin-annlicat-lon was refused. -.I.-C"- TENDERS. For meat for the workhouse, there was only one tender, that was from Mr W.

We cannot help it.- Mr J. Bevan: Do we want 50 tons.—Mr Dan Jones: It does not, matter now about the extra supply.—Chairman: The question now is does the resolution hold good —It was agreed on the motion of Mr (Matthews that the Master should get the coal as he wanted it.—For gro- cerly. only one tender was sent in, and that was from Mr Lewis, American Stores, which was accepted.

A Serious Talk on a Serious Subject
A Serious Talk on a Serious | Subject. When getting over a cold, fever, or .i-l'in&sa of any kind, be careful to guard your kidneys against a breakdown. Every day thousands are recovering from one disease or another, j and it's while "convalescing" that great care is needed to avoid falling into the clutches of kidney trouble. The kidneys, when in health, are the hard- est worked organs in the body. No wonder that when the blood is loaded with uric add poisons and the work of the kidneys is doubled that they break down. Kidney weakness follows as naturally as night the day. After influenza, pneumonia, fevers and even ordinary colds, watch for kindey trouble, and the dull, tired foolin-9, ino matter how unim- portant they appear to vou. Your kidneys will need help for a while. There is nothing more soothing, n-ot,bing,blet,ter than Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. This medicine is for the kidneys and bladder only, and has no action on the bowels. With the temporary assistance of Doan's Pills, care as to diet, more rest and sleep and exercise in the open air, you can soon get back to normal.

He had several small cages containing birds. He had four goldfinches recently caught which died next morning.—Defendant said he was very sorry and did not know lie was doing wrong.—The Bench said that in fining defendant £1 they thought they would be dealing veyr reniently with him. He must be aware of the Act. An I' order was made for the forfeiture of the net, but it wa& decided that the birds and cages should be returned to the defendant. XQN -MAIN TEN AN CE. Wm. Crooks was charged by the Llandilo Board of Guardians with the non-mainten- ance of his wife and three children.—Mr R. Shipley Lewis, Clerk to the Guardians, said that relief was granted to the extent of 10s a r'e week. The wife would tell them that the de- fendant had constantly threatened her and refused to maintain her. The case had been before the bench albout two months ago, and it waa agreed between him (Mr Lewis) and Mr Hurley, wjio appeared for Brooksi, that the case should be adjourned for two months to enable the latter to make a home for his wife. He had not done so, but since the defendant had twice visited his wife's house and abused her. On one occasion he was very drunk, was apprehended by the police, and brought before the bench and fined. The wife said she had been living with defendant at Dafen, Llanelly and Ammanford, He had left her without any money in the house, had s-buged her and threatened her with a razor and a hatchet. She had one time agreed to go to live with defendant again, but after his re- cent conduct; she and the children were so afraid of him that alie would never go back to him again. She lived with her cousin at Llandilo.—Defendant denied the wife's state- ments as to threats and said he had been giving her moiiey. He was employed at Glyn- corwg Colliery. The reason he gave up the house at Llanelly was because lie was under notice and he could not get another one, whilst his wife was unwilling to go to apart- ments.—Questioned by Mr Lewis, he admitted he earned £ 2 5s a week, but said that he waa not earning that now.—The Bench made an order for 15s a Tveek.

Matthews said that the Sanitary Committee had visited the Emlyu Colliery, and saw some work had been done with a view to abate the pollution comlained of, and the manager promised to further develop the works and it would probably tend to do away with the whole of the nui-sance. They also went to Caebryn and saw the water coming out from the washers The managers said lie would send to his directors who had since written to state that they would be pleased to do everything they could to purify the water from their washers as desired" The committee recommended that the Clerk should write to the works and ask them to proceed at once so as to abate the nuisance. --Nir Matthews moved the adoption of the report and Mr D. Davies son.ded.)Ir J. Bevan thought they should fix some definite period for carrying out the work.

Showing Seaward Lights at Pendine
Showing Seaward Lights at Pendine. HEAVY FINES INFLICTED. At Whitland Petty Sessions on Wednesday before Mr J. Lewis Phi'lipps (chairman, Mr D. Evans, Rev T. Lewis, Mr H. Morris, and Mr T. Dai vies, David Lewis Ebbsworth, the licensee of the Beach House Hotel, Pendine, was charged under the Defence of the Realm Act with showing lights which would be visible from the sea. Defendant did not appear. A note was however handed in which stated that the offence was the resuTt of the fault of a servant g»rl. Supt. Jones said that there was an objec- tion to adjourning this case which bad been hanging on (for some time. It was advisable c^se dealt as a warning. lhe Clerk You want to get it in the papers. oupt. Jones said that an Order liatl txeen made by the Secretary of Stalie for an area. in which Carmarthenshire was included. Under this Ordef it was an offence to show lights which would be visible from the sea or from navigable steamers. The offence in question was committed on the Gth August. P.C. Warmington had previously warned defen- dant about his la ghtsi on the 7th May, and had afterwalrds to speiak to him on the 12th August. Tlia lights would be visible in any part of the Channel right over to Devon, and the danger to which the realm was exposed was obvious. P.C. Warmington said that on the 6th of August he saw a light on the second floor. It came from a double burner lamp which was not shaded. Inside the passage was a hang- ing lamp whiiah was shaded. When defen- dant's attention was called to it, lie said the servant had just put the candle there; "How am I to stop it? There aire plenty of more cases in the village." The bdinds were not drawn. Witness had previously warned him on the 7th May and had to warn him again on the 12th August. The places is rathe- elevated and faces North Devon. The room in which the double burner lamp was, was occupied bv a visitor from Glamorganshire. The blind was not drawn and the lamp was not shaded. The Rev T. Lewis said that the lodger would be equally liable. The Bench retired to consult. On their return to Court, the Chairman said that the wench had decided to fine the defendant R5. He wasliable to a fine of £100, or six months imprisonment. idiiam John, of Shore House, Pendine, a grocer, wias Similarly charged. Supt. Jones said that there was a differ- ence betweeii this case and thelast one. In this case only the reflection of the light was risible. The Clerk (Ilr C. H. Morgan Griffiths) said ¡ there could be no reflection except there was a light. P.C. Warmington said that at 10 p.m. on the 6th August beaw the reflection of a lamp showing on the white slope of a stair- case in the passage of the defendant's house There was nothing to prevent the light being seen from the sea. When the defendant was charged lie said "The lamp is much higher up than usual." Witness asked the defendant to come on to the,foreshore, and see the, light itself. Defendant refused to do that. Wit- ness had warned the defendant on the 7th of May. The lamp itself was not visible, but the reflection on the staircase when the door was opened showed mor« than the direct light of the lamp would. When spoken to on the 12t:h August, the defendant said that he was going to keep the light there. Witness said that if the defendant did not remove the light he (P.C. Warmington) would enter the house and remove it. When the summons was served, the defendant said "It is a pity vou t can't find something better to do." His wife said that it was a very trivial case. Defendant said that the light faced a rodk and could not ibe seen from the sea. He was bound to keep the door open to earn his living. What could he do. The constable said that the defendant could provide a blind or a screen or he could shade the lamp. The Chairman said that it was not for the constable to point out to +he defendant low < he could avoid showing lights. It was for the defendant himself to find out what to do. < The defendant would be fined £ 4. Any simi- '] tai- case would be dealt with much more I severely. j NOT DIPPING SHEEP. At the same court, Henry Thomas, a far- mer living at Tyhen, Llandissilio, was charged with not dipping his sheep as required by the Order now in force. It appeared that the constable had told the defendant of the re- cjuirement of the law during the dipping period. The period expired on the 31st of August. The constatble mlled on the defen- dant on the 2nd September and found that the- sheep had not been dipped. The defen- dant set to work and had them dipped right away, Supt. Jones pointed out that the defendant was liable to a fine of £5 per sheep-£215 in all-as he had 43 sheep. The Bench fined the defendant 6d a sheep BREACH OF CLOSllNG ORDER. Mr J. M. James, grocer, Clynderwen, was charged by Inepector Roderick with a breach of the Closing Order. Inspeootr Roderick said that on Friday, September 17th, he was at the village of Clyn- derwen at 1.15 p.m. He wufj standing near the defendant's shop. It had then been closed for the weekly half holiday. A man came up knocked at the shop door and was answered by the defendant's wife. Some wards passed between them and the defendant's wife went inside. Witness crossed the road and was just in time to see the defendant's wife through a doorway hand some change to the man. Mrs James said "I know I am doing wrong; but the man pressed me and I did t not like to refuse." Defendant said that the customer came in 3i milles with a big order. They refused to supply the goods as it was after closing time. He pressed very hard for a bar qf salt. Jt was agreed he should pay for it and call for it later. The salt had not been supplied. Mr Roderick said that a sale had been made and the goods were not delivered because of his visit. The Cderk said that the defendant stated that although he had refused to execute a big order he was willing to supply the salt, but that no sale had been effected." | Rev T. Lewis said that the defence had to be taken cum grano salis. ,1"h Bench finétt the defendant. 2s Lid, CASIE DISMISSED.'
