He was not a farmer himself and could not do anything on the farm except grow tomatoes. (Laughter.) —Mr G. A.

(Laughter.)—The case of Evan Jones was adjourned and the other exempted until July 31st. Mr. Jones also appeared for Mr. Jones, Gvfyng, Pennant, asking for exemption for his son (Morris J. Jones).

.—-————'———— Our Portrait is of Mr. FRANK INGE, of 209, King's Cross Road, London, W.C., who writes:— "I had a very bad running abscess in the jaw for some years; it was gradually eating the bone away—it would get better and then break out agtin I was continually poulticing the abscess, but still it would not heal. One day someone advised me to try 'Clarke's Blood Mixture,' and after taking two bottles I could see a great difference, so I continued with it, and after taking the third bottle it had dis- appeared. I was quite run down, weak, and very thin, but as soon as the abscess had healed I began to fill out again." Abscesses, Ulcers, Bad Legs, Glandular Swellings, Eczema, Boils, Pimples, Sores and Eruptions, Piles, Rheumatism, are all sure signs of clogging blood impurity, calling for immediate treatment through the blood (outward application is of little use). For cleansing the blood of its impurities there is no other remedy just as good as Clarke's Blood's Mixture. That is why so many remark- able cures stand to its credit. Pleasant to take, and free from anything injurious. Ask for and see you get Clarke's Blood Mixture "EVERYBODY'S BLOOD PURIFIER."

Merioneth Education Committee. THE SCHOOL CLINICS. DEARTH OF TEACHERS. Merioneth Education Committee met at BalA. on Thursday, May 30th. This being the annual meeting, the Rev. R. T. Phillips took the clmi. pending the election of a chairman. There were also present Messrs. G. G. Davies, Dr. John Jones, Joseph Humphreys, L. J. Davies, R. E. Roberts, T. Jones, B.Sc- D. E. Jones, Edward Griffith, R. T. Vaughan, Edward Rowland, J. Maethlon James, Sir Henry Robertson, J. Lloyd Owen, Dr. Richard Jones, John Roberts, Mrs. Burton, Miss M. C. Jones. Miss M. A. Owen, M.A., Messrs. Richard Barnett, clerk. Dr. John Jones was re-elected chairman. Dr. Jones thanked the Committee for the renewal of their confidence in him and hoped ere another year war would have ceased and peace be re-established. The Rev. R. T. Phillips was elected vice-chairman. The Finance, Secondary Schools, Building, and Appointments commitees were re-elected. The Clerk produced a report on salaries of teachers. Advances and war bonus were granted head teachers to the extent of ;E2,1461 before the Fisher grant was given. Uncertifi- cated teachers had an addition of R,150 10s. to the C729 10s. previously paid. Certificated, teachers were paid £1,587 10s., instead of £ 1,365, and an addition of £ 514 was made in the salaries of supplementary teachers. The. total was £21,197 5s., of n increase of £5,221. apart from the contributi n made to teachers serving in the army of £1;400 per annum, which was C320 in excess of the Fisher grant.—In reply to a question, the Clerk said he believed the majority of the teachers were satisfied. The report was adopted. Mr. E. R Davies, secretary for Carnarvon- shire Local Education Authority, wrote regard- ing a proposed scheme for Anglesea, Merioneth, and Carnarvon for the whole-time engagement of Dr. Malcolm Stoekdale, Liverpool, in connec- tion with the work of school medical inspection. —The Clerk said the Committee had ronsilei-e I the letter, and suggested that no decisive steps could be taken at present, but that a small committee should go into the matter. The engagement of Dr. Stockclale now cost twelve guineas per centre, or k360 a year.—The sug- gestion was adopted. Dr. E. Lewys Lloyd, medical officer, pre- j sented a report stating that the clinics sanc- tioned in September, 1917, started in February, 1918. The greatest difficulty was experienced in getting together the equipment. At Fes- tiniog sixty-eight cases of adenoids and tonsils .were operated on; 105 cases of apparent defec- tive vision examined; and one cpse of ear disease. At Dolgelley thirty-eight cases of adenoids and tonsils operated on, thirty-eifrht j cases of defective vision examined, and three cases of ear diseae--a total of 106 cases of adenoids and tonsils, 143 cases of defective 1 vision, and 4 cases ear disease. The results had been exceedingly good and already a. marked improvement resulted. Many parents ex. pressed gratitude. A mother of a child of eight Said he child was now able to play like other children. V.A.D. nurses rendered valu- able help, and the thanks of the Authority were due to them and the Misses Anne Jones, Miss Jones, Llan; Miss Agnes Owen, Fes-j tiniog: Miss Williams, The. Blaenau; Mrs. Fletcher, Dolgelley; Mrs. Gelly, Mrg. -Alills, Miss Griffith, Tanycoed; Miss Mattie Jonathan, Towyn; and Miss Lawford, Borth. The nurses of the district nursing associations aho rendered valuable services. During the year < he had examined 1,801 children from thirty eight schools, and found 439 cases of adenoids or tonsils needing operation in 110 cases of slightly-enlarged tonsils. The Chairman congratulated Dr. Lloyd on his report and said he had been present at several of the centres and formed a high opinion of Dr. Stockdale's qualifications. He proposed the adoption, and a hearty vote of thanks to the niirses.Tlie proposition was unanimously adopted. Dr. IJovel said there was a difficulty at Pen- rliyn, the nurse being unable to do the visiting in Maentwrog district. Nurse Parry was un- able to cover that district. Mr Joseph Humphreys proposed that Maen- twrog should be attached to Blaenau Festiniog. Mr. G. G. Davies and the Vice-Chairman doubted if the Festiniog nurses could under- take any further work. The Chairman said it was decided to have a nurse at Trawsfynydd and they were only wait- ing for an appointment to be made. The district was now attended from the Dolgellev office. It was decided to attach Maentwrog with Blaenau Festiniog district. It was decided to make no change in the re- muneration of the district clerk. Merioneth N.U.T. wrote protesting against the appointment of an attendance officer as teacher. The Chairman said the man was formerly a teacher. « Referring to the case of the Headtnistress of Llangower Council School, whose health, had suffered owing to having to cycle to Bala, Mrs Burton said it was most ungrateful of the villagers. They had been insistent in getting a school, but failed to give the. teacher lodg- ings. The managers of Llandrillo School were authorised t,) rent a plot for a school garden and to produce the necessary tools. Ir. Ernest Hughes, Wernddu, Gwyddelvvern, was appointed 011 the Board of Managers in place of Mr. Joseph Davies. A sub-committee was appointed to consider the recommendation that cleaners' requisites be provided. Festiniog Managers recommended the pay- ment of fees of children from a distance attending the Higher Grade School. Mr. Thomas Jones suggested that the matter be deferred. It was decided to allow (11- present application, subject to a reconsideration of, the whole question. IT. J. Griffiths, of the U.C.W. agricul- tural staff, appeared in support of a nioveriient2 to organise a travelling school for cheese-mak- ing. Mr. Griffith said i!. was most necessary to revive home production and industries. The authorities had received many inquiries from Merioneth for demonstrations, following the lectures recently delivered. The proposal was to hold classes of a fortnight each in four centres which could deal with two sets of students. It was not an ambitious or expen- sive project. It would involve the salary of the instructress of about S3 per week only and travelling expenses, a total of about £40. The Board of Agriculture promised to lend the necessary appliances. Mr. Griffiths replied to a number of questions. The Chairman 'thought the project, worthy of consideration. Cheese-nmking should be encouraged. The money would be money well spent. On the proposition of Mr. R. T. Vaughan, it was deckled to include a course of demonstra- tions in the agricultural programme next year. The centres were fixer] at Towyn, Harlech, Bala, and Corwen. On the proposition of Mr. Edward Rowland it was decided to close Tynyberth School tem- porarily in the event of the Headmaster being called to the army. Bala Managers were also advised to arrange for the temporary closing of the Bala Non-Provided School in the event of the master being called up. Mr David Breese enclosed an application from the County Medical Officer (Dr. E. Lewis Uoyd) for an inerea-se of salary. Messrs. William Owen, T. Martin Williams, R. E. Roberts, and Joseph Humphreys were deputed to attend a meeting of the Health Committee and the County Council to consider the matter. It was decided to approve of the principle of granting facilities tc. the holders of free places or scholarships removing, r'-ovdrag t'n' the same terms were extended by other authorities. Dr. Richard Jones called attention to the creditable position of Merioneth in the returns' issued by the Government relative to secondary education, from which it appearred that Meri- oneth was at the top of the list in percentage of children receiving secondary education. The ratio was 19.5 per 1,000, while the number for Carnarvon was ten. The consideration of a communication from the North Wales Temperance Association re- garding the desirability of establishing an annual examination in temperance at all schools in connection with temperance teaching was deferred. The Committee decided to express no (■pinion on the question of Welsh educational autonomy. Sir Henry Robertson presented a detailed report of the Building Committee, of which he was re-elected chairman.—The report was adopted. adopted.. adopted.
