BRYNMAWIL COUNCIL. Thursday, January 17th. Present—Messrs. A. E. Evans, J.P. (chairman), W. Roberts, J.P. (vice- chairman), Wallace J. Tong, James Bloor, T. E. Bowen, John Lewis, D. Owen, William Da vies, Gwilym Morgan, H. Kelson, T. Wiltshire, D. A. Davie", John Thomas (clerk), R. S. Widdowson (surveyor), and W: Evans (toll collector). Sr.ACGHTER-HOFSE.—Mr. E. Bush attended and applied that a building in Worcester-street should be registered as a slaughter-house.—It was decided that permission be granted on Mr. Bush filling up the requisite form.—Mr. Buah said that he would fill a form similar to what other butchers in the town had been doing in the past.—Mr. D. A. Davies observed that they were not responsible for the misdeeds of the Old Local Board, and in future butchers would have to comply with the full regulations.—Mr. Mose? also applied for permission to register a slaughter-house in the same street.—The Council decided that the appli- cants should fill up the forms, and the surveyor was instructed to report at the next meeting. THE SLAUGHTKR-HOUSE QUESTION.—Mr. William Davies referring to the above said that there were great complaints in the town. The people who com- plained did not object to the slaughtering, but to the boiling of offal, which was a great nuisance. If people wanted to boil that sort of thing they should go outside the town. The question should be thoroughly looked into (hear, hear). MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT.—Dr. Browne wrote to say that he had nothing to report this time. There was no case of infectious disease in the district, and the rate of sickness was low. ADDITIONAL CONSTABLE.—Mr. Wallace J. Tong brought up the question of an additional constable for Brynmawr. He said that at the last meeting of the Breconshire Standing Joint Committee Mr. Lyddon, C.C., applied for an additional constable for Bryn- mawr, but the matter was not decided, because the I Brynmawr Urban District Council had not backed up Mr. Lyddon's application. He (Mr. Tong) now pro- posed that the Urban District Council make applica- tion for an additional constable. There were three grounds for making the application 1, the numLer and character of the population 2, the popula- tion compared with that at Brecon; 3, the large increase in lailway traffic. With regard to the first ground there was 800 more population at Brynmawr than at Brecon. With regard to the second ground, the Chief Constable and Deputy Chief Constable were at hand at Brecon in addition to the usual police staff, and there was also the military there. Some 2,000 people were in the habit of coming to Brynmawr on Saturdays.—Mr. James Bloor seconded, but thought that they should apply for two additional constables. The Sergeant was engaged sometimes 16 hours "straight off the reel" the local police were being worn off their legs. —Mr. D. A. Davies: The new lodging-houses will also want supervision.—Mr. W. Roberts, J.P., sup- ported the proposition, and referred to the large number of people who came into the town on Sat- urdays.—The Council unanimously decided to apply for an additional constable. THE WATER RATE.—A deputation of Licensed Vic- tuallersfrom the town attended respect ingthe water rate. —Mr. Williams, Globe Inn, who acted as the spokes- man of the deputation, said that the Licensed Vic- tuallers had to pay more than their fair share; not one of them brewed, and they did not use more water than other people; but notwithstanding that they had to pay more. They wanted justice done in the matter.—The Council said that the question would be gone into, and the deputation then withdrew. CONDOLENCE.—Dr. Browne, medical officer of health, wrote thanking the Council for passing their vote of condolence with him in his recent bereave- ment.—Mr. James Bloor also wrote thanking the Council for their sympathy with him in his recent trouble. FIRE BRIGADE FOR THE TOWN.—Mr. Gwilym Morgan proposed that a concert be got up for the r purpose of organising a fund towards getting a fire brigade in the town. He thought that the time had arrived when the town should possess a brigade. He had gone into the matter, and found that they could get an engine with appliance for £ 147 that was not a large sum, and he did not think they would object to it. He thought that every effort should be mad e to make the concert a success, and that members should sell tickets, which would assure a full house. They could also try and get some subscriptions. He did not see why they should be behind at Brynmawr. If a tire brigade could be got up at Ebbw Vale and other places, why not also at Brynmawr ?—Mr. D. Owen secouded.—Mr. W. Roberts expressed himself in favour of the proposal, and Mr. D. A. Davies also spoke in favour, remarking that they might exhibit the fire brigade in costume at the concert (laughter). —Mr. William Davies said that the sooner they got the brigade the better.—Mr. D. A. Davies asked whether the fire brigade would prove of any use in the west ward, where there was often no water for four and six weeks at a stretch (laughter).—The propo. sition was agreed to unanimously, the date of the concert being fixed for the firllt Wednesday in March, Mr. Tong and Mr. Morgan being empowered to form a working committee. LIGHTING ARRANGEMENT*.—Mr. Tong proposed that the Works Committee should reconsider the lighting arrangements, and that the Surveyor should submit a time-table as to the periods of light- ing. His (Mr. Tong's) idea was to get some of the lamps lit all night for the benefit of the working-men and police supervision but generally speaking he should like the lamps put out at 11 p.m. on every night except Saturdays and Sundays, when they Bhould be put out at 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. respectively. —Mr. D. Owen seconded, and said tnat a lamp should be lit at Newtown all night.—The proposition was agreed to. THE COUNCIL MEETINGS AND PUBLIC ACCESS.—Mr. Bloor brought up the question of admitting the public to the Council meetings. At Brecon, he noticed, tilers was a place reserved for the public to listen while thsCouncil proceeded with its business.—Mr. W. Roberts «aid that there was ny objeefcion'to admitting

TESTIMONIAL :— COULD NOT STAND UPRIGHT. 41. Potters's Hill, Aston, Birmingham, December 29th, 1890. DEAR SIR,-A few weeks ago I received one of your pamphlets, and found that one of the testimonials describes what I suffer-great weakness and pains in my back and sides. I have been under treatment in two hospitals, but can get no lasting benefit. I have tried Patent Medicines, but they seem to weaken me rather than give me strength. After reading your pamphlet, I resolved to try the QUINTNE BITTERS. I have now taken three bottles, and have derived great benefit. When I commenced taking them I could not stand upright with the pains in my back and sides, but now I am glad to say those pains are gone, and I can walk with ease. I feel strong and my appetite is improving. My wife, who suffered much from bad liver, seeing the benefit I received from the BITTERS, takes it as well, and finds it does her more good than any medicine she ever took.— Yours faithfully, W.

HE TOOK THE WRONG SHIRT. At the Merthyr Police-court on Thursday, Charles Tritchard was charged with stealing a flannel shirt, the property of John Higgs, labourer, rontlottyn. The prosecutor said that the prisoner lived in apart- ments in his house. On Monday night last, witness went to work leaving the prisoner and his wife in the house. When he returned in the morning they had gone, and he missed his shirt from a nail in the back room. The shirt was worth 3s. 9d., and witness sub- sequently found the man in a house the next street. P.C. Mitchell said that on Tuesday he went to the house where prisoner was staying, and found the shirt among other goods. The prisoner said he did not know he had the shirt, and did not attempt to conceal it in any way.-The Bench believed the man had made a. mistake, and allowed him to go.

PRESENTATION AT NEW TREDEGAR A very pleasant and interesting evening, under the auspices of the Lawn Tennis Club, wa." held at the Tredegar Arms Hotel on Wednesday last. The following ladies and gentlemen were present:—Dr. and Mrs. Mannsell (guests of the evening), Mrs. N. Phillips, Miss Phillips, Brynsyfi Miss Tillott, Mrs. Down?, Mrs. Yendoll, Mrs. Matthews, Mrs. Stowell, Mrs. D. W. Price, Miss Llewellyn, Mrs. R. Thomas, Miss W. Morgan, Messrs. C. Tiilott, A. H. Stowell, J. H. Downs, J. W. Matthews, D. W. Price, R. Thomas, J. Morgan, R. Jeremiah, T. Lewis, J. Davies, W. M. Jenkins, J. H. Lewis, A. Price, L. D. Thomas, D. Williams, J. Lewis, J. H. Greenhow, Dr. Bayfield, and E. L. Brain, hall. secretary. The purpose for which they had gathered together was to present Dr. and Mrs. Mannsell with a silrer candelabra on the occasion of their marriage, which took place recently, and a report of which appeared in a. previous issuse of this paper. After partaking of the good things provided for those present by Host and Hostess Yendoll, an adjournment to a spacious room was made, where the usual loyal toasts were proposed and responded to by the different members of the club. In the unavoidable absence of Goui> cillor N. Phillips, J.P., president of the club, the chair waa taken bv Mr. C. Tillott, C.C., who, in the course of a very touching address, referred to the many years Mrs. Mannsell had spent in the place, during which time she had endeared herself to all with whom she came in contact; she had also made a. large number of friends in the surrounding districts. He also referred very touchingly to the genial and gentlemanly qualities which Dr. Mannsell possessed, and the very high esteem in which he was held, although not as old a resident as Mrs. Mannsell. He also specially mentioned the very great services rendered to the club by him as player and president of tho club last year, during which time the club had gained a very high state of efficicncy, which was mainly due to the doctor's efforts. He (the speaker) sincerely hoped they would long be spared to enjoy the pleasures of tennis. He afterwards made the presentation, and remarked that he had very great pleasure in being present, and to be favoured with the opportunity of handing the present over to the recipients, for whom lie had the greatest respect.—Dr. Mannsell responded on behalf of Mrs. Mannsell and himself, and stated there were many pleasant thoughts that he should liked to have given vent to, but when he got upon his feet they had all taken flight. However, he might say that the presentation would be greatly valued by them. The doctor also remarked that he had not only entered into a double harness, but that his sojourn here had entered into double figures as well, and he felt happy to say that during the time he had spent here he had received very great kindness at the hands of every person. He thanked them one and *11 for their kindness, and assured them that tho pre- sent which they had so kindly given would be duly appreciated.
EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY. Our corpulent readers will be glad to learn bow to positively lose two stone in about a month, with the greatest possible benefit in health, strength, and muscle, by a comparatively new system. It is a singular paradox that the patient, returning quickly to a healthy state, with increased activity of brain, digestive and other organs, naturally requires more food than hitherto, yet, notwithstanding this, he absolutely loses in weight one or two pounds daily, as the weighing machine will prove. Thus there fs no suggestion of starvation. It is an undoubted success, and the author, who has devoted years of study to the subject, guarantees a noticeable reduction within twenty-four hours of commencing the treatment. This is different with other diseases, for the patient, in some cases, may go for weeks without being able to test whether the physician has rightly treated him, and may have derived no real or apparent improve- ment in health. Here, we repeat, the author guarantees it in twenty four hours, the scale to be the unerring recorder. The treatment aims at the actual root of obesity, so that the superfluous fat does not return when discontinuing the treatment. It is perfectly harmless. We advise our readers to call the attention of stout friends to this, because, sinceielv, we think they ought to know. For their information we may say that on sending cost of postage (fourpence), a reprint of 1'1'('3 notices from some hundreds of medical and other journals—British and foreign—and other interesting particulars, including the book (256 pages), containing the "recipe," can be had from a Mr. F. C. Ru^r-ell, Woburn House. Store Street, Bedford London, W.C.
¡ A MERTHYR WOUNDING CASE. At the Police-court on Saturday Aladdin Gibba was committed for trial to the Quarter Sessions on a charge of unlawfully wounding Ann Ford, at Mer- thyr, by kicking her in the face, it appearing, from the doctor's evidence, that three stitches had to be applied.

RHYMNEY AND PONTLOTTYN CHAMBER OF TRADE. A meeting of the Rhymney and Pontlottyn Chamber of Trade, was held at the Royal Arms Hotel, on Wednesday evening. There were present Messrs. L. L. Fine (president), Jno. Price (Pont- lottyn), J. Lewis (gas manager), D. Morris, T. N. Evans, Geo. Gale, J. Bernstein, David Hopkins, Alf. Phillips, Thos. Thomas, D. Williams, D. Thomas, G. J. Jacobs, G. Evans, Jno. Edwards. J.P., and B. Rees Clarence. FEDERATED CHAMBER.—Mr. John Price called atten- tion to a request that was made at the last meeting that the secretary and the treasurer should examine the account of the payments to the Federated Cham- ber, and to see if the amount claimed was really duo from the Chamber. The Secretary replied that he had gone through the accounts and found that JB1 10s. was owing to the Federated Chamber. He was pleased to state that the motion for a Federated Chamber of Trade for the district was started by the Rhymney Chamber of Trade in connection with the Merthyr Chamber in 1885. Nine years subscriptions were due, and they had paid eight only.—It was unanimously decided that the arrears be paid. MORE TRAINS FOR PONTLOTTYN. — Mr. Alfred moved that the Rhymney Railway Company be petitioned to improve the train service for Pont- lottyn. What he particularly wished the railway company to do was to run the 10 train in the morning from Rhymney Bridge, which does not come further than Rhymney at present, on to Pontlottyn, and to arrange that the 8-30 a.m. and 11 a.m. trains from Rhymney to Rhymney Bridge should start from Pontlottyn. This arrangement would be of great advantage to the people of Pontlottyn.—Mr. John Lewis seconded. — Mr. Thomas Thomas strongly supported the motion, and thought the Railway Company should do this for the convenience of the public.—The resolution was carried unani- mously. THROUGH TRAINS TO NEWPORT.—Mr. George Gale moved that the Brecon and Merthyr Railway Com- pany be asked to run a mid-day train from Rhymney to Newport. At present there was only one train in the day running direct from Rhymney to Newport.— Mr Alfred Phillips thought a continuation of the 1.10 train from Maesycwmmer to Newport would meet the difficulty.—Mr. Thomas Thomas seconded the motion.—Mr. B. Rees said he happened to be travelling a short time ago with one of the officials of the line, and this matter cropped up. He was of opinion that it would be better to propose an earlier train than the 1.10. This was too close to the three train.—Mr. L. L. Fine agreed.—Mr. David Hopkins did not think it would inconvenience the Brecon and Merthyr so muoh as some of the members thought.— Mr. Alfred Phillips said they had better leave it to the railway company to work their own time.—The proposition was unanimously adopted. LIGHTS ON BREWERY DRAYS.—Mr. D. Morris had a motion on the agenda to call the attention of the authorities to the necessity of compelling brewerv drays to carry lights after dark. He now wished to withdraw the proposition, as there appeared to be a great improvement in this direction. BRECON AND MERTHYR AGAIN.—Mr. G. J. Jacobs said he wished to endeavour to get the Brecon and Merthyr station nearer the people. He was f-ure they would all agree and that the railway company would also agree that this was very desirable.—Mr. Thomas N. Evans was of opinion that the proposition should Ije a little more definite. They could come nearer the people if they only came to Forge-street, but he hardly thought that was the intention of the mover. It would be better if they could get the station near the centre of the town, somewhere abont the local itv of the Castle Hotel.—Mr. G. J. Jacobs thought that if the suggestion of Mr. Evans was adopted the scheme would be too great. An Act of Parliament would be needed to extend the line so far.—Mr. Thomas Thomas believed they would have to get an Act of Parliament to move the station only to the Mardy, and it would be just the same trouble to get an Act to extend to the middle of the town as to get one only as far as the Mardy.—The proposition was adopted. MISCELLANEOUS.—Mr. John Lewis called the atten- tion of the Chamber to the pillar boxes at Newtown. The postmaster at Cardiff had promised to give the matter his attention, but nothing had yet been done. It was decided to call the attention of the authorities again to this matter.—Mr. Thomas Thomas asked the secretary if lie had received any further communica- tion respecting the Newtown tollgate.-The Secretary read a letter from Sir William Thomas Lewis stating they were unable to interfere with the present arrangements. It was decided to write again to the Gelligaer Highway Board on the matter.—The Secre- tary stated that he had forwarded the memorial rc magistrates meetings at Rhymney to the Joint Committee for the county. The clerk had replied that it was not a matter fo the Joint Committee to decide, it was a question for the magistrates themselves to consider. It was decided to forward the memorial to the magistrates' clerk. VOTE OF CONDOLENCE.—Mr. L. L. Fine called attention to the death of Mrs. Woods, the wife of Mr. John Woods, and moved that they pass a vote of condolence with Mr. Woods in his bereavement. Mr. Woods had been one of the greatest supporters of the Chamber, and one of its most useful prudent".—Mr. John Edwards seconded, expressing deep sympathy with Mr. Woods.—The motion wa" carried. PROPOSED BANQUET.—Mr. G. J. Jacobs suggested that they should have a banquet to celebrate the return of so many members of the Chamber on the Parish and District Councils at the recent elections.— After considerable discussion, the matter was dropped. NEW MEMBER.—It was decided on the motion of Mr. D. Morris, seconded by Mr. L. L. Fine, that Mr. Christopher Herbert, Square Shop, Pontlottyn, be admitted a member of the Chamber.
the public it was only a matter of space available in that room for listeners.—The other members also saw no objection to the public being admitted to the meetings. APPOINTMENT OF OVERSEERS.—Mr. Bloor proposed that they petition the Local Government Board for the power to appoint oversee -Tli(, question was deferred at the suggestion of Mr. 'long, the Clerk being instructed in the meantime to draw up a report showing the present position of overseers and other matters. SURVEYOR'S REPORT.—This report was as follows:- The Market Committee met December 21st, 1894, at the new market viz., Mr. W. Roberts (chairman), Messsra. McNeil, G. Morgan, — Markall, and R. S. Widdowson, surveyor.—The Surveyor was instructed to divide the meter room under the stairs for a ticket office, which has been done. In accordance with your instructions I wrote Mr. Morley and Mr. Benson respecting the clock for the Market Hall, and I beg now to hand you their replies. I think on account of the bad weather it would be advisable to let it remain for a short time. I am continually receiving complaints respecting the draught at this hail, and to prevent this it will be necessary to have the doors cased over, for which I await your instructions. I have written and also seen Mr. Acland, the gas manager, about connecting the additional street lamps, and he pro- mised as soon as the weather breaks it shall have his immediate attention. The Brynmawr Foundry Com- pany has written offering an ashbin, and if you decide lo purchase it, it would be most suitable to Miles-row. Blaenavon-roacVhas been repaired as far as the stock of metalling would go, but to complete the repairs I shall require a further supply of metalling, and would recommend the Board to obtain some limestone. I have been doing my utmost iu urging Mr. Thomas Morgan on with the filtering sand, and you will now see by his letter that he has promised to let yon have the first lot which arrives. Mr. Richard Lewis, Llwynpwll, has commenced cleaning out the sewerage tanks at Clydach Bridge, which he nope3 to complete in the course of a day or two. Since your last meet- ing twelve burials have taken place in your cemetery. Several notices for the abatement of nuisances have been served, and I beg to hand you my journal for your inspection. Mr. A. Davies, Glamorgan-street, has deposited a plan for the erection of a smelting furnace in his back yard. I do not recommend the Board to pass it, as I consider it dangerous, the sparks coming from it to the adjoining premises." ACTION ON THE REPORT.—With regard to the town clock question, letters were read from Mr. Morley and Mr. Benson, and the Council decided that a cav- ity be made on the front cf the hall for the clock, aud on the proposition of Mr. Owen, seconded by Mr. Kelson, the work of doing the same was entrusted to Mr. R. Eddy.—With regard to the draught at the Market Hall, Mr. Samuel Evans, carpenter, was instructed to get the doors cased, as recommended by the surveyor.—With regard to the ashbin for Miles- row, the surveyor said it would cost about L2 10s.— Mr. W. Davies said that ashbins were generally a nuisance, and he moved that they have nothing to do with ashbins, but that the cart call at Miles-row like other parts of the town.—Mr. Davies'proposition was agreed to.—The Council decided that lilaenavon-road should be attended to, and the surveyor's recommen- dation respecting the erection of a smelting furnace in Glamorgan-street was acted upon.—The report was afterwards adopted. MR. D. A. DAVIES ASKS A QUESTION.—Mr. D. A. Davies nuked the surveyor if he was aware that there were many houses with only one privy between them —The Surveyor replied that when such cases came under his notice he served the usual notices on the owners of the property to provide the necessary accommodation.—Mr. D. A. Davies proposed that notices be again served on all owners of property to provide proper accommodation.—The Chairman said Mr. D. A. Davies was out of order.—Mr. D. A. Davies replied that he would in that case give notice. He was afraid that the people might perish of typhoid fever (laughter). THE LAMPS.—Mr. Bloor said that the lamps near Vulcan and the Mission Church were down, and he wanted to know whose fault it was.—The Surveyor It is not mine.—Mr. D. A. Davies said that it was disgraceful to leave the lamp near the mission church as it was, and he thought that responsibility lay with Mr. Acland.—The Clerk said that Mr. Acland had told him that he had given an order for the lamps to Mr. Webb.—The matter then dropped. THE WATER QUESTION.—A long discussion ensued on the above, and it was decided that the water should it off from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. dailv in the lower parts of the town in order that there might be a more regular supply in the upper parts of tho town. —Mr. Bloor also moved that a committee of the whole Board be appointed to go thoroughly into the water question. There was a lot of water used in the town which was not paid for, whilst some people had v tow 'y to pay more than their fair share. The licensed victuallers of the town paid 7id., although they did not use more water than those who only paid 6d.— Mr. Tong seconded, and said that it would only be an act of justice.—The proposition was carried unani- mously.—A letter was also read from Mr. D. Morris, White Lion. asking why there was no water at his u Mr. place like Blewett-scjuare and Worcester-street. —Mr. T. Wiltshire, referring to the irregular supply in the West Ward, said that there was water there from & to 8 in the morning, but none afterwards.— TheChair- man jocularly remarked that that was too carlv for Mr. D. A. Davies (laughter).—Mr. D. A. Davies replied that he was often down at 7 o'clock in the morning (laughter). THE SURVETOR.—Mr. D. A. Davies proposed the re-election of Mr. Widdowson as surveyor and sanitary inspector for the town. He had done his work during the past year very well, and he was the best surveyor they had had.—Mr. W. Roberts, J.P., seconded, and said that they must admit that there had been a very great improvement during the year. He had confidence in Mr. Widdowson that there would be still greater improvement during the coming year if he was properly supported by the Council (hear, hear).—The proposition was carried, and Mr. Widdowson thanked the Council.—The Council also decided that the Surveyor should attend at the Local Board office each morning from 10 to 10.30, and each afternoon from 4 to 4.30, in order that people might know when and where to find him.—The Council also decided that the surveyor was not to take instructions from anybody outside the Council, and if he was interfered with by outsiders in any way he was to make a. note of it in his journal.
