r Poultry. GROWING FOOD. I am one of those people who believe that a certain amount of flesh food is good for everyone and the beat form of meat, is a nice plump chicken. A fowl is well within the range of possibility for every house and I see c' no reason why the poor man should not have his fowl sometimes as well as the highest ih the land But to ensure thi. the cottager should raise a few fowls at home, then lie can have an extra joint when he fancies it, and there is nothing more tasty than a roast chicken. Many folk are now coming to the conclusion that they can keep a few chickens and so raise part of their own meat. There have been many enquiries of late as to the best means far producing a good fowl, and though late in the year I know that some intend to start now. Well there is nothing against, this, because if the. chickens are done well they will come in for table before all the summer vegetables have left, the garden. Those who follow these notes will recall my notes on other occasions as to all country folk producing their own food from the garden in the shape of vegetable", eggs apd chickens. Al-hough not possible the whole year through yet every week that you can have the butcher out of it means so much reserved for a later time. First of all remember thpt some no>s>;s are better than a pure bred fowl and almost any cross will be better than a pure lip,tit breed. For instance the Leghorn is not much of a fowl for killing, btkt when crossed v the Wyandotte they stin retain their ^ood laying qualities, and yet make a 'very fair table bird True they are" not big, but still Ihf y sh. w a| nice breast and carry fair weight; with small bone and very little offal. Any of there light breeds do very wefil when crossed w\h the Houdan or old' English game and neither dastroy the laying qualities of tne pallets. By this method the man in the ottage can have his fowl and enjoy "luxuries with i he rest. For a heavy fowl wheote weight counts I'U: so rcÜch there is nothing better than a cross from an Indian Game Cock, but as the Indians are such poor layers pullets bred like this should be killed off early because they will pay better then than if kept on for egg pro- duction. The Indian can be crossed with almost any kind of the heavy class and the results will be quite satisfactory. Always use the male Indian because the hens of another breed will lay better and you can get more chickens. There is a big demand now for Indians just for «fossing, and though very late in the season it looks as though some folk are trying to make up for the shortage and help the food supply. All these chickens will come in and, though I believe in clearing them out as soon as ready, a few might be held over to make a bigger joint for Christmas. There is nothing better than two pure breeds and the results will -be some strong vigorous chickens which grow quickly and soon make up for table. As already said, the heavy breeds make the best table fowls. From the Orpington, Sussex, FaveroKes, Rhode Island Red or Rock is a big bony bird and wants plenty of time to make up. though when fully ready it is almost like a young turkey. Crossed with the Shssex the shape of the breast is improved while the flesh comes out rather whiter. A Sussex .Cock with Faverolle hens make a fine fowl and though the Faverolle shows a little feather on the leg, it, is very seldom seen on the chickens., Both breeds having a white leg and white skin, they shew up nicely plucked and will sell easily from the bench. The Sussex Orpington is more than useful and the crosra will grow more rapidiy than a pure Orpington and be less bohy look- i1 if killed early. When we are raising for (able we need a bird which develons quickly md goon becomes ready for sale. Of all the crosses there is not much to beat the Indian F -,i v, r o! Ifor though young, they can always be killed and vet will show a n:ee breast. Fo- actual weight the Sussex or the Rhode Island- Red will take some beating, but they need at east twenty weeks to mature and if kept for 'ix months will be all the better. At this age lhev make a grand fowl and will oome up to lwelY3 pounds if given plenty of fatten'ng foods.
Failure of the Nerves. Nerve Paralysis of Five Years standing Quite Cured by Dr. Cassetl's Tabets. It is the wonderful nerve nourishing power of Dr. Cassell's Tablets that enables them to cure cases such as the following:- Mr. Robert W. Sickley, 20, Milton-street, Wombwell, near Barnsley, say.s For over five years I suffered with Nerve Paralysis. My right sida from the arm to the foot was completely paralysed; I had to go with a stick, trailing my leg as though it were dead. Medical treatment proved useless in my case, and there seemed no hope of any cure. In fact, I was given up as unfit ever to work again, and after five years of helplessness I was of the same opinion myself. But one day I was advised to try Dr. Cassell's Tablet*, and very soon I began to feel the benefit. Feeling and power gradually returned to my leg, and I found 1 could walk a- little without the stick. Then I managed to cross the. street, and so it went on till now I am strong and well and back in my old employment."

ABER. AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE. Aberystwyth District Agricultural Committee met on Monday, present, Mr. D. W. Lewis, in the chair; Messrs Daniel Jenkins, Dd. Lewis, J. G. Stephens, R. L. Thomas, Evan Hughes, E. R. Davies, clerk; J. Williams, cultivation officer; and Mr. Abel Jones, U.C.W. The Clerk explained that the meeting had; been called at the instance of the Chairman .(Mr J. B. Morgan): but Mr. Morgan was called away to Lampeter. He be.ieved Mr. Morgan intended to call attention to the cancellatiori, of exemptions of men up to 31 who were being called to the coloui-3, and also to the repre- sentation of Aberystwyth Union on the County Executive. Mr. R. L. Thomas agreed that the points I mentioned were vital points for the farmers of the district. He understood that Mr Mor- gan intended to discuss the matter with the Committee. The ChaL-nnn agreed that the position of Aberystwyth Union on the JTxecutive was quite anomalous. Aberystwyth Union with two- thirds of the population and ratable value of the county had one representative only, ex- actly the same number as the smallest union. It was explained, in reply to a question put by Mr. David Lewis, that Mr. Vaughan Davies. M.P., was not selected to rrpresent the Union, but another organisation. On the proposition of Mr. R. L. Thomas, the meeting unanimously adopted a resolution to be forwarded to the Executive requesting that Aberystwyth Union should have two additional representatives. The Chairman said the resolution cast no reflection on Mr. Bunce Morgan's services. Mr Morgan has done his level best, but was out- voted on nractically every question. The Ex- ecutive had power to add to thir number and should use it in fairness to the Union.

HINTS FOR ALLOTMENT HOLDERS. Xx figABE-WQBKEB. SOME IMPORTANT CROPS. Owing to the likelihood of a poor fruit crop, an official appeal has b^n made to allotment-holders to grow as many vegetable marrows as possible, not only for the purpose of jam making, but for use, when cooked, in various ways during winter. We can all re- spond to this appeal, for there is no great difficulty in growing marrows. They are liable to fail when the plants are small un- i- -.s some care is taken, but once established ne-od only plenty of water. Failures ften occur through ov^vatei-iug when the plants are small. 1, ood plan to place a flower-pot cer b iing for the first days after planting it is astonishing how greatly this help- it to become ettab- uied. The fruits lte increased in size ery considerably by using a piece of wool "uo water-in which some sugar is dissolved. Ono end of the wool j;.¡ placed m the water, liie other end being jrulled through the stalk of the marrow, with the help of a needle. In wet weather the fruits are liable to be- come spoilt when allowed to rest on the tsoil; fhe use of a aimple frame work, as shown in the illustration, will prevent this. Growing a giant marrow. j Is it necessary to "stop" marrow plants; in other w ord^, to pinch off the,point9 of the shoots? I do not think it i, for the plants branch freely enough without this attention. Neither is it necessary to fertilise the blooms. TAKE CARE OF THE SHALLOTS. Those who remember the high pi ice last winter of shallots and onions will realise the imi>ortance of attending to the needs of the.se. vegetables now, for both arc growing freely. If the weather continues dry and hot. the soil should be watered. I find nothing better than liquid from yard n-anure, dilated with water. A weekly ap- plication of this does a lot of good. Those who planted shallots early will find that the tops begin to fall over this month and the new bul1:Jri show up plainly; the latter should be fully exposed to the air and sun- shine. and it pays to draw awat the soil from them for this purpoee. Thin out the onions to three or more inches apart, ac- cording to the size of bulb required, hoe be- tween the rows to keep down weeds, and apply a scattering of soot and wood ashes every week. Syringe twice a week "ith half a winegUuvfiful ofparaffin mixed in two gal- lons of water, to keep away the oiiion fly. TOMATOES AND STRAWBERRIES. I hope everyone has planted out a few tomatoes this season, for they, like all other things, are likely to be expensive. The secrets of success are to tread the soil firmly, to apply a mulch of manure on the surface rather than dig it in the soil, to rub off all shoots in the leaf axils while they are small, and finally to stake the plants securely. A crop I should like to eeeon every allotment is the strawberry. 'It is an easily-grown plant, does not take up much room, suffers iittle from pests, and the fruit is invaluable for jam making, especially nowadays, when it is possible to obtain a little extra sligar for home-grown fruits. I have a small bor- der of strawberries, and they are DI.W ripen- ing. The way to succeed is to begin eally- to plant rooted runners in July or August. You are then assured of a good crop the following year. PRIZE WINNING HINTS. A prize of "The Garden How to Make It Pay," is awarded to Mrs. Edwards for this interesting not: Frost is liable to damage our early potatoes and runner lalls. We can ncutrali",<' its effects, however, by syringeing the crops with very old early in the morning, before the sun shines upon them. This is a scientific fact. for the damage is caused by the bursting of the kaf films by the heat of the sun, after bring contracted by the frost the cold spraving thaws the fibres gradually, and so witfiout the damage that usually follows. Mr. J. A. Scott gains a prize of "Garden- ing Difficulties Solved for the following notes and sketches: To make an adjustable seed-sower, get a round tin-box, and on the rim of the lid punch or drill six tin. holes at equal distances apart. Put the lid on the box and mark and punch out tht. large holes as on the lid. Pia 1. Pfc.i. An adjustable eeed-sower. Turn the lid round a little until the holes are closed, and punch the next size, 8-16in. Make smaller holes in the same way.

Every week two prizes are offered for the best allotment hint or recipe. The prizes consist of useful gardening books. All en- tries for this competition must be addressed "Spadeworker," care of Editor of this paper. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. R. C.—Why not put tomatoes near the wall if it is a sunny position, or runner beans if it is somewhat shady. They would be much more profitable than nasturtiums. The latter are gencraliv attacked by cater- pillars to some extent, out the potatoes are not likely to suffer on this account. M. W. B.—(1) Superphospate can be used as a liquid, loz. being dissolved in one gallon of water. You ought to measure it out or you may do more harm than good. (2) mtrate of 9oda and sulphate of ammonia are both nitrogenous fertilisers, and their chief value is that they give a filip to growth, especially leaf growth. You might use the nitrate of soda now for cabbages, but give the merest sprinkling to the lettuces, for they are easily damaged. (3) The salt in the sea-sand might prove injurious to the Wans. I should advise you to experiment on a few plants before using much of it. "Spadeworker" is open to give practical advice, free of charge, to readers of this paper.

Aoerystwym ciuaraians DISPENSING OF MEDICINES. Aberystwyth Guardians met on Monday, Mr David Jones presiding. The Clerk (Mr Hugh Hughes) reported an offer of ES for the old typewriter in the office. The Board had been fortunate in purchasing a new typewriter when they did as the price had gone up considerably since the purchase.—The matter was referred to the town guardians. The Clerk said in reference to the boys whom the Board had decided should be sent to a home for feeble-minded every endeavour had been made to find vacancies for the boys who were a source of• considerable trouble in the house, but so far in vain.—It was decided to continue making inquiries. The Local Government Board approved of the increase of salary and war bonus granted to the Clerk. Mr. Edwin Morris, bringing up the report of the House Committee, said Dr. Bonsall was anxious to be relieved of the dispensing of medicines. It would be a relief to him and would be also a convenience to the paupers who now were obliged sometimes to wait for hours until he returned from his rounds. Mr. Morris said Dr. Bonsall had a severe winter with the large number of bedridden inmates and had worked splendidly and harmoniously with the Board. He thought the Board should relieve him of the dispensing part of the work which could be efficiently done by chemists.— Mr. John Morgan, Brynymor, said it was all very well to pass a proposal in a vague form; but the question was what was it likely to cost the ratepayers?—Mr. Edwin Morris said the cost would be very little, and the relief great to both parties.—On the proposition of Mrs. Doughton, the suggestion to relieve Dr Bonsall of the dispensing was adopted. The Master was directed to mak- arrange ments for a girl approaching fourteen years of age fo go into a situation. Mr., Edwin Morris said the Master and Matron deserved'the best thanks of the Board for the great trouble they had taken in draw- ing up a new dietary table in response to the suggestion of the Local Government Board. The House Committee thought the table an excellent one aitd recommended the Board to adopt it in its entirety.—The table was unani- mously adopted. The Board adopted a vote of thanks to Mr. Thomas and a troupe of Birmingham enter- tainers who had given an enjoyable evening to the inmates. Mr. Edwin Morris and Mr D. Morgan, Pen- lIwyn, were elected to represent the Board on the Aberystwyth Infirmary. •; if

Aberystwyth Borough Food Committee. THE COMMITTEE AND MILK SELLERS. Aberystwyth Borough Fooa Committee met on Thursday week, present Messrs. G. M. Williams, presiding; T. J. Samuel, J. Barclay Jenkins, T. J. Morrison, David Davies, Tal- fan; Daniel Thomas, J. D. Williams, C. J. Campbell, D. Sylvanus Edwaras, E. P. Wynne, Mr. John Evans, executive officer; and Mr. T. C. Jenkins, inspector. Captain Bloorofield, Board of Agriculture officer, was present with Captain Lloyd to help the Committee to fix a reasonable price for fish. The matter was dis- cussed in private and it was decided that mem- bers should consider the matter by the next meeting. A vote of thanks was accorded Capt Bloomfield on the proposition of the Chairman. —Mr. Barclay Jenkins thought it advisable t* have local fishermen represented at the meeting when the matter will be ckscussed. The Executive Officer reported that a deputa- tion representing the Committee waited on the Divisional Food Commissioner (Mr. R. J. Rhyst at Cardiff on Friday. The deputation consisted of the Chairman, Mr. David Davies (who took the place of Mr. T. J. Samuel who was unable to go) and the Executive Officer. They told the Commissioner that the milk sellers openly defied the Committee and had been encouraged by the Commissioner. The Commissioner denied it and said the main question was whether the milk sellers had had a fair hearing by the Com- mittee, which was assured him. The Commis- sioner added that he was quite satisfied on that point and that it was for the local Com- mittee to fix the. price, as they knew local con- ditions.—The Executive Officer reported that proceedings had been taken and fines inflicted. Immediately after Wednesday's Sfceeiona the milk vendors held a meeting and the mem- bers of the Association decided not to bring milk into the town on Thursday. He had wired to the Committee for consent to the Committee to exercise the power conferred on them by the Milk (Requisition) Order, 1917. By the Order the Council can commandeer milk from producers, paying the maximum price and selling it to the townspeople. The Commis- sioner wired back "Exercise power if you think necessary." It was now in the hands of the Committee to decide what action should be taken. The Chairman gave an account of what transpired at the interview with the Commis- sioner. The Committee had always tried to act fairly, he said, and had given the milk sellers every consideration and a fair hearing. They had allowed the milkmen to sell milk at 5d. a quart up to May 11th. One (f tie pleas the milkmen's deputation had was that they had to buy cows in August. The Committee looked for every encouragement from the Com- missioni-rs, and if the necessary support was not given then the Committee would have to consider its position. There were about four milk sellers who were not members of the Asso- ciation and they sold their milk in town on Thursday. Members of the Association told him that when they joined U10 they did not think it would come to refusing to supply the town. They only joined to get 5d. a, quart. The action of the milk sellers was much > be regretted. Children who had lost their fathers in the war, as well as invalids, had to go without milk that morning. The matter was further considered in private and it was decided to commandeer supplies of milk.
