IOver a Waterfall I
Over a Waterfall. I BRECONSHIRE ADVENTURE. Mies Dorothy Griffiths, daughter of Mr and Mrs R. C. Griffiths, Beaufort Street, Brynmawr, and Mr E. H. Williams, Beaufort, on Wednesday evening fell over the Pont Harry Isaac Fall at Clydaeli, Brecon- shire, and sustained inj uries. Miss Griffiths and Mr Williams and two lady friends were going down the valley for a walk, intending to take a photograph of the Fall, when Miss Griffiths slipped and fell into a pool. Mr Williams rushed to her aid, but he also slipped, and before either of the others could help them they were carried by the water on to the slippery rock, over the Fall (which drops about twenty feet), into deep water. Mr Williams, however, recovered himself and managed to drag Miss Griffiths to the side. Miss Griffiths was bruised from head to foot, and IN Williams had one knee badly cut. They were attended by Dr. A. Lancelot Jones, and are now making good progress.
INew Radnor Meatless
I New Radnor Meatless [ FOR SUNDAY DINNERS. New Radnor had a very strange experience a week or two a go. The supply of meat for the week included two forequarters of beef and a hind quarter of beef, and ow- ing to the condition in which these were received it was thought advisable to call the attention of the Medical Ofllcer of Health to the meat .before offering it for sale. In thi.s the butchers acted wisely, for in the result the Medical Officer of Health (Dr. Harding) re- ported that the whole of the meat was unfit for the food of man. Thus New Radnor lost all its Sunday dinners i)ut the health, and possibly the lives, of some of its sons and daughters were saved. Xothing but credit at- taches to the action of the local butchers and the Medi- cal Officer, but it is clear that there is something wrong -somewhere when a rural town like New Radnor is left without fresh meat. when all around are cattle and t'heep in abundance. The local Food Control Co-nmitt-et is. no doubt, investigating the position, and it is to be hoped that effective slep-i. will be taken to prevent the repeti- tion of such a deplorable occurrence.
