Mr Thomas had been pro- minently connected with public movements 'n Carmarthen and had up to a few years ago held i the appointment of Official Roceiver under the Bankrutcy Act, for the Carmarthen and the Swansea, disriets. A native of Llechvane, near Brecon, Aii- Thomas, who was in his 75th year, Mr Thomas had resided at Carmarthen for close upon half a century, Prior to 1884, n which year he was appointed Official Receiver for the Carmarthen district—being appointed for the Swansea district in the year 1.889--lio served for many years on the Town Council as councillor a.nd later a.s alderman, and was t one time Mayor. He resumed public work after his retirement from the official receiver- ship. He was senior magistrate of the Boro, a member of numerous local bodies at the time of his death, including the Board of Guardians and the Carmarthenshire Infirmary Committee He was a warm supporter of all religions and social movements. He was the seir'or deacon of Zion English Presbyterian Church, and n 1891 he was president of the conference of the English Pesbyterian Churches of Wales. Mr- Thomas was also a staunch Liberal, and Mhd rendered yeoman service to the cause espe- cially during the candidature of the late Mr W. R. H. Powell, of Maesgwyune. A niin of high character, he was greatly respected by a'1 ciasses. He was keenly interested in social problems, and the poor of Carmarthen have lost in him a true friend. His death is a distinct loss to the community iu IN-Ille-li he lived, sa he was n undoubted power for righteousness in the town. H s wife predeceased him two years ago. He leaves three daughters—Mis Dean, London; Mrs Jones, wife of the Rev Richard Jones, Llandinam and Mrs Campbell, wife of Dr CanibpeU, Cardiff and Miss Isobel Thomas, Harddfan. The only son, Captain the Rev George Thomas, B.A., of the R.G.A., was be- fore joining the Army pastor of the English Prosbybor'an Church at Gooiiivlcli, TRIBUTE BY BOARD OF GUARDIANS. At the meeting of the Carmarthen Board f Guardians on Saturday, the Rev J. Herbert, Llanllawdog (chairman) in moving a vote of condolence with the bereaved family, said Mr Thomas was a very respected mouther of Board and was a man whose opinion he always highly valued. The Rev A. Fuller Mills, in seconding, said he had know n Mr Thomas for many years m many capacities and spheres and had always found him a very»gentlemanly man, a wise ad- viser, and a man of sound judgment. He wis very helpful in the town as guardian. "WE are losing one by one here," added Mr Mills, "and I venture to hope that the ranks will be filled up by equally good men in the future. Mr John Jones (Plas) said since ho became acquainted with the late Mr Thomas ho had found him a very genuine and straightforward man. Mr J. Patagonia. Lewis said he was very glad that he had come to know the late Mr Thomas especially as one who took a great interest in the town. He was a man who visited the poor and saw that they got fairplay. His death was a. great loss, especially to the poor of the town. The motion was carried in silence, and order c'd to be inscribed in the, minutes. MAGISTERIAL APPRECIATION. At Carmarthen Borough Police Court ,1 Monday, the Mayor (Aid. John'* Lewis) moved a vote of condolence with the family, and iu dOlllg so sa.id that Mr Thomas, as one who OCTll pied a seat on the bench for many years, a-lways did his duty. He was very much rc- spected by all in tho town, and they as magis- tratee regretted veryr much that they had lost one of their faithful ones on the bench. 1 am very sorry that wc are going one bv one to the front," added the Mayor. "There s only one magistrate who is my senior at the present timo and that is Mr Brigstockc. fit, is now the senior magistrate." Mr E. Colby Evans, in seconding, said know Mr Thomas since he came to Carmarthen and had always found him a very upright man. He took n. great interest in everything that pertained to the welfare of the town. W hen he was mayor lie was an ideal one. He spared no time or expense in furthering the interests of the town generally. Thy would miss him very much. He was a man whom 110 (Mr Evans) admired in e-very way possible, and he very much regretted his death. ■Mr H.. E. Bla;. ;don-Richa.rds said he had -at for a good number of vears oil the bench wit it Mr T lionias, and he did not think there was a single magistrate, either there or anywhere else, whom he regarded with more esteem or with greater admiration. iJJr Thomas was a man with a warn! heart and was alwavs ap- proachable and sympathetic, but there was this about him, lie was never to be approached when there was any suspicion of any undue in- fluence. 1 hat. characteristic of him was nioit marked, and was recoguised and acknowledged by everyone. He was a type of magistrate who could be set up as an example to others. He had just the characteristics that were most e-sential to anyone who sat on the magisterial bench. He was a man absolutely independent in his judgment and had regard for no parti- cular interests when it I). a question of solely administer = it■; jest eo. Probably, like everyone else, he might have formed occasion- ally a wrong decision, but he (Mr Richards) was quite satisfied that if at any time he did form-a decision which was not correct, that (I was always come to under an entirely sincere belief that it was right. From his ox- perience of Mr Thomas, his decisions were sucn that no one could cavil at them or find fault with them. His presence on the bench on many occasions had a considerable amount ri influence over him (Mr Richards), and 'i o firmly believed that Mr Thomas's influence "n tho bench and throughout the town wa.s such as to leave its mark. Mr Ilees Davies briefly endorsed the remarks of his colleagues. Clerk (Mr Ve Brunei White) said thai he would like to associate himself with what had been said, more especially, the. words uttered by Mr B'agdon-Richards. He had had the privilege of practising in that court many years before lie became magistrates'" clerk, and he used to think sometimes that he was not well treated by Mr Thomas, but- upon mature reflection when he got back to his office he thought Mr Thomas must have been right and he (Mr White) acquiesced in what be always considered a right verdict given by Mr Thomas. He held the scales of justice per- fectly impartially. He took time and trouble and every 'litigant had the benefit of his greit experience. As Town Clerk he (Mr White) would miss him very much. a.s lie always found him most courteous and obliging. The Head Constable (Mr A. K. Mayall) said ho frequently met Mr Thomas in his magis- terial capacity and as a neighbour. Ho found him to be a man of much moral wortJlh, and from that point of view he sincerely appre- ciated him. They, as police officers, when they came to tho court and saw Mr Tham",gn the bench, always felt that lie would deal-gut justice in a fair measure. They would njiiss him very much. All present stood in silence as the vote was carried. The ftineral took place at Ca-rmiatrthen Ceme- tery on Wednesday. The funeral was strictljr privaie, only the near relatives and a few intimate friends attending. The Revs Arthur Hughes, B.A., pastor of Zion Presbyterian Churoh and the R.ev W. D. Rowlands officiated at the house and graveside. 'Ihe chief mourn- ers were the Rev Richard Jones, M.A., Llall- din-am and Dr Henry Campel), Cardiff (sons- in-law), and there were also present Messrs 'J. Maurice Jones, Kori House; J. Arthur Jones, National Provincial Bank, and H. W. Thomas, Official Recover, Carmarthen. The only son, Capt. Rev George Thomas, now in France, was unable to be present. MR CHARLES CROKlillt.

I Parliament Asked for a Present
I Parliament Asked for a Present. Members of Parliament get strange letters sometimes. Mi-John Hinds. M.P., has had an intimation from a constituent that his wife has presented him with two sets of twins with- in the last ten and a half months, and that "he has borne him 12 children in 11 years. Ho thinks Parliament should do something in the way of a present.
How Many ? How many bilious attacks have vou had If few, you should he thankful! It *'mi.n.y, then you are entitled to sympathy. But sympathy won t cure or even relieve you of this trouble, /i f as we know, arises through the faulty action of the liver. It is apparent, then, that to be free from Biliousness or Bilious. Heauaches, you must keep this important organ of th digestive system healthily active. I hrougli the many years that Mother Seigel's has been before the public, in no one thing has it been more successful than in con- quering or preventing biliousness. Proof of this we have from the thousands of people who havo voluntarily testified to the fact. Mrs Robins, of Walnut Tree Hill, Charlton, IN-il ts., says "From early infancy I had been subject to Biliousness. But between the ages of 16 to 211 think was the worst time. Head- aches were common, and some bouts of bilious- ness lasted for three days on end. After one bottle of Mother Seigel's Syrup I felt a-benefit, and four bottles made me well, and I have been so right up to now. a period of close on 30 -v I, s. W hat Mother Seigel's Syrup did for Airs Robins it is capable of doing for yon. Put it to the test to-day.
