COHRESPONDENCE. J EGGS SCARCE AND DEAR. To the Editor ot the FREE PKJESS. I jljSIr,—I should like to kaow tho reason if meat and other commodities cm be regulated by the Authorities why eggio cannot. Do you not thick that It in out ot all manner of reason for eggs to be at three and four for a shilling, in a county distxiot like this and at tbis time of tbe year. We hear a lot from oar letders re ecooony. I say that if they can rule other houasholc commodities they ought to have tha prerogative over the egge, and instead u devoting time to trying to fine a perron in I a heavy sum for taking a little refreshment before the stipulated tixo, I think they would be doing mote good in bringing the eggs to a reasonable price, by imposing a b eavy penalty on any "healthy person" that is found eating eggs at the present price. I hope you vi ill forgive me when I say eggs if they are anything like what I purchase are cot even an apology for eggs; it would take three to make a proper ene. I say emphatieplly that tho above business ought to co ue under the same category as other artioles,-Yours &i., AUBI SACRA FAMFITF.lJ < Noveabe? pbi. 1917, 3 I

This was agreed to. Hughes then pleaded guilty, while Edward Evans, Ii, labourer, of Californi square, St Asaph, pleaded guilty to receiving the lamp, well knowing it was stolen.

Gomer Jones said the de- fendant spoke English all right, and was driving a cart every day. He had been in this country for 17 months, and ought to know the law as to lights. The Magistrates' Clerk: Some people have been ia this country foi 17 years and do not know the law (laughter). Defendant was fined Gs. TREFNANT OFFENDERS.

St. Asaph Board of Guardians. FmuAY.—Mr J Pennant Williams (Pre., tatyn) presided. ROMAN CATHOLIC CHILD IN PROTESTANT HOME. The Clerk placed before the meeting correspondence and a statement of the case relating to a child who had been once in the Workhouse. From this it appea red Canon E Ba. had written to the Local Government Board oiaiming the child on the ground of its mother's religion, end that the child had been baptised in the Roman Catholic faith. for its admission into the orphanage at Pant Asapb, The Clerk's statement as follows, fully set forth the ease :—" About four years ago & Catholic inmate gave birth to two illegitimate children In our Poor Law Institution. The woman died at child. oirtb, or shortly after. The children were aptizad by the Catholic Priest. It appears very little Intarest was taken In them after oaptism until very recently. About six months ago a respectable farmer's wife applied for one of the children for absolute idoption. The Guardians granted the application. Since then the foster parenti. use maintained the child free of expense to the Guardians. The foster parent is not a Catholic. Parent and child have become attached to each other. Recently the Guardians sent the other twin to a Catholio Orphanage, and have agreed to pay for its maintenance. The Catholic Priest has applitd for the adopted child to be a!eo sent to the Orphanage, on the ground that (he Guardians had no authority to send it to a Protectant tome. My Board recognfso hat a principle isinvolted, and are willing in any future caae to respect the wishes of ehe rev gentleman, and to send Catholic ohildren to Csthoifc homes; but, taking a common sense view, contended that In the present callie it would be ungive and harsh (if they have the power to do .0) to disturb the existing arrange w jnt. Will you please advise ai to the position of the Guardians, in view of the fact that the child has ceased i.0 be chargeable, and that it has been handed over for absolute adoption ?" The Local Government Buard replied In reply to your letter I em directed by the President of the Local Government Board to state that, in view cl the im- portance of a child being educated In Its proper religious creed, it is tfecslrable that ohis point should be attended to whenever I ehe Guardians bave a proposal before them chat a child under their care shall be taken oharge of and brought up by persons who de willing to undertake the whole cf the expenses involved. In the present oase che Local Govfrcment Board is advised chat, as t lie obild in question ie no longer n any way chargeable to tbe Guardians, and the Guardians did not vest in them •elves the rights of her parents, the Guardians are not in a position to interfere with the discretion of the persons in whote oharge she now is. The Chairman said that In thia matter lihelr only desire had been to respeot all fights apart entirely frcm sectarian feeling. fhe correspondence which the Cierk had one to the trouble of circulating amcngst line members cf the Bourd fully explained the mattsr, and he was sure the Board tcqnieloect in the view now submitted oy the Local Government Board. The matter was passed over without farther comment. THE FUTURE WELFARE OF SOLDIfcHS AND SAILOBS.
