Red Cross Hospital Milk Supply
Red Cross Hospital Milk Supply. LETTER FROM A CONTRACTOR. To the Editor Carmarthen Weekly Reporter. Sir,—May I through the medium of your — «4 the public generally that no one was more surprised than myself to hear that the Red Cross Hospittal Committee at Carmarthen paid Is 8d per gallon for milk. I have regularly supplied milk to the institution since its for- mation at Is per gallon until September 16th thi,s year, when owing to the extra cost of feed- ing stuffs, etc., I had reluctantly to rtise the price to Is 4d per gallon, which is the highest price I have ever had for milk from the hos- pital. It is now for the other contractors to write and give the price they receive and so clear the matter openly in the eyes of he public. Thanking you in anticipation for n. serting this letter. Yours truly, E. THOMAS. Bronhaiul, Penlan road, Carmarthen, Novembbr 27th, 1916.

Lighting Restrictions in Carmarthen. SOME MODIFICATIONS OBTAINED. On Friday the 24th ult. a deputation repre- senting the Carmarthen Chamber of Commerce waited on the Head Constable of Carmarthen (Mr Mayal1) in order to present their case for some modification of the present lighting, e- strictions which they contended were unneces- sarily stringent. The extension of lighting time for the Christmas season was suggested. A lengthy and amicable discussion followed the necessity of the restrictions being fully recognised on the one hand, and the conven- ience of the public on the other. The Head Constable intimated that no ol)- jection would be taken tolights in shop win- dows provided they complied with the order, and that no direct rays from the burners reached the pavement. He mentioned several shops were lights had been used, and to which no objection had been taken. At present .00 information had been received that increased lighting could be used for Christmas trade. i Other matters arose and the Head Constable said that lie had given permission to all who had asked, to use outside lights at the entrance to places of worship for 20 minutes after the conclusion of the services on Sunday evening. so as toseoure. safe exit, provided, the lisrhtAS3 were subdued im a manner similar to street lamps andwere only used at such time as was necessary.
