The rule says: "No an mals, fowls, or pigeons, shatfl be allowed to be kept on the premisea without the consent of the Borough Surveyor." Bats are not fowls or pigeons, but they are animals—so are cats. You must. ask the Town Surveyor what you are to do about She rats.

WINTER. Chill winter: faded, silent, dark- No song of bird, no hum of bee. Dumb winter: barren, misty, stark, Symbol of what life is to me. I know the length'ning days will bring Bright sushine, fresh leaves, apd flowers; That after winter comes the spring, And then the summer's lang'rous hours. Yes, yes; this much at least I kc tw, The seasons follow as of oid; j Still to the sea the rivers flow, And love's old tale is still untold. Beyond the dark, above the miai, And deeper than the biting cold. The world God aaid was good, I wise Is good. I +rust Him as of ft1. Although I shiver in the blast, Although I quiver in the hed., Firm in my trust from fit to last ¡ I bow in worship at His feet; I I see the summer fade and die, I I see the summer live again, I know not what is death, or why, I Or what is life or why is pain. Some day the frost will lose its hold, Some day the world will be less dumb, Some day the buds will all unfold, And then the summer will have coM. Ah, yes, again the best will be-- 1 The best that now ;8 far away I But not for me, nor yet for thee, J Will be that perfect happy day. December 22nd. 1905. CHRISTMAS. Once more. I have been thinking how many children have grown into remembrance of this festival during the year. They can perhaps remember last Christmas dimly and a-e ex- pecting great things this Christmas! Some of ns can remember sixty Chriztmases-sixty of tbem, and even more! Christmas is the children:, t'me. That Is wllv it is kept ever green. The old people rlt" member Christmas. Then the young people frrow old and rememfcer Christmas and so Christmas lives on and on. I remember when j I was VOUDg- how I was troubled and even during Christmas Day the moments passed in ordinary ways. T would have liked each > aaoment to hava been heralded in some glori- I cuff manner, but alas, evel. Christmas Day was largely comrvosed of commonplace moments and came to flat and tame conclusions. The vaeventfuln even of Christmas Day was a &oiirce of great perplexity to me when I was a dfiild and I did not understand the matter- .r-factness of the grown-ups and their obvious ■take-believe. I Way I wish you a Merry Christmas? I December 23rd, 1898. CHRISTMAS. There is no surer sign of advancing age than the remark that it is difficult to believe tbab taert Sunday will be Christmas Day "Boys and gir's at school have no difficulty whatever in beleving that next Sunday is Christmas Day. They have difficulty in be- lieving that Christmas Day is just as long as the days before and after it, but they have waited and watched for Christmas too long to be taken by surprise when it comes. Christmas brings those of us who are no longer young nothing but reminders of the past where* we dwell far more completely than in the future. Most of us will try to make merry-and some of us w:ll achieve the feat, but we shall be glad when the day is ovfvr. I shall long, and long, and long, and nobody will know what I long for. Why should they know? They may guess, but of all the riddles that are guessed at Christmas time there is aone so hard to solve as what the old art longing for behind their placid, smiling faces!

Jones, son of Mr. Rees Jones, bor- ough surveyor, Plascrug IoAge. appeared in the "Carnarvon and Denbigh Herald." Mr. Jones had made hosts of friends in his adop- ted town:— More precious than gold, or rubes, or any aff.) ICIL form of worldly wealth is that amazing pow, given only to few mortals, of commanding ts respect, the affection, and the love of those' their feHows with whom they come in c<- tact. H.R.J. was the happy but unconscia possessor of this great gift. Wherever he w% he attracted to himself a coterie of frien who recognised the subtle magnetism of J personality. Beauty, whether of art, lite- ture, music or drama, moved him profound. Did he read a book of prose or poetry whi touched him, he was not content untii it H been circulated amongst his friends that tty might share his pleasure. He delighted 3 recite his favourite poets by the page, his ev shining meanwhile as. if inspired. He mift often be seen listening unobserved to the hearsals of the Choral Society. His enthusiai was consuming and contagious. He slackedt no work to which he put his hand; he attacH it w'th a fervour and intensity that left suit in no doubt. His love of nature vs sueh that at one time he deliberately abal- ored his profession and for a considerable tie acted as forester, thereby incurring a c,. siderable monetary loss, in order to get! c'oser touch with the great mother. But te move was made too late in life for h'm to e able to adapt himself physically to the w conditions. Yet he was no plaster saint, e was a human man full of human impuls, and he lived every moment of his life. It vs only the other day when we were sorrow^ over the death of a common friend, that ho marked that the one certainty in life vs death, and went on to quote Rupert Brooks fine poem:— I have a rendezvous with Death- I little thought that the rendezvous in s case would be kept so soon. But when deal came he fought it stubborny, gallantly, VE- antly. He watched with practised eye te swaying of the battle. When, even after 8 soul had been wandering in the dark plac, I leaving his body behind, babbling mcon- quently and incoherently, he resumed its P" session, he would smile that cur ous, hum, ous, one-sided smile of his, undaunted and t- dismayed. But, to our great loss and sorro, but only for the moment, death triumphe. Maeterlinck says, "There are no dead." Its inconceivable that such a soul as H.R.J. w could die ABERYSTWYTH WAR MEMORIAL. At the close of 1919 we find ourselves at te end of the year during which Peace ce'-ebi- t on3 have taken place acd during whii peac.) was signed after five years of terrftj warfare. The nations of the world are D" ooking forward to a. bright future for to com-ng year. Having thel e facts in view te Aberystwyth Wiir Memoria I Ct-nm"lttes. co* -ider tho pr isent an opportune time in wId1 to launch a. Lightning campa-ign for the fa., night, January 4th to.

Aberystwyth Guardians. PRAISE FOR THE STAFF. Monday, December 22nd, Mr. E. LIewel>i' presiding.—Mr. ParryJ manager of the Nat ona and Provincial Bank, wrote that Mr. C. I Bannetts of Ind-a, had authorised him to pa the usual amount to provide a treat for th inmates.—The Chairman said it was usual fo the Board to provide for the inmates o Christmas Day and to give the inmates a: additonal treat on New Year's Day with Mi Bennetts' contribution. The Board wer doepiy grateful to Mr. Bennetts for h'e cor tmued kindness. He had also given the in mates a treat on Armistice Day.-On th Chairman's proposition, seconded by Mrs James, a hearty vote of thanks was accorde, Air. ii rmetts. The Clerk read a communication fcom th Clerk of the Auckland Union asking the Rf lievng Officer to visit a boy from that Unioi who had been placed by the Church of Eng- land Waifs and Strays" Society in service a a farm in the Union.—Mr. John Morgan sai, in view of complaints against the treatment o such boys in the southern part of the county the Re.ieving Officers should visit all suet cases period cally and report on their treat ment.—The suggestion was adopted. Miss A. L. Maryland, Old Vicarage, sent L chrque for E10 to provide the inmate with a treat. Mis; Marsland hlÍi smco sent a cheque. Miss Rov- lands, Caradoc-road, had also sent l quantity of tea.—A vote of thanks to th) donors was given, a member remarking that the inmates were in for a good time. Mr. J. R. Grffiths oaFed attention to ai pas- sage in the visitors' book bv Mr. J. Morgai Davies, of the Treasury Audit Department London. Mr. Davies wrote expressing h* appreciation of the method, cieanliness, ani order observed in the house during his totf of inspection which reflected the greatest crt" dit on the Master and Matron and staff. Mi. Grffiths said that Mr. Morgan Davies Was a, old Aberystwyth boy and well qualified bv hs experience to form an opinion.-The Chairman said it was to be regretted that more local people did not avail themselves of the oppor- tunity to visit the house occasionally, sucii visits might do much to -;ve themcorrett viows; but he feared that members also were very remiss in their duties in that respect. Many of them seldom went beyond the Boar:! Room. He felt strongly that members should occasionally visit the sick wards even if thev neglected to visit the other parts of the house.—Mr. Daniel Lloyd hoped the press would take notice of the discussion The Chairman emphasised the importance cf pressure being put bv the Relieving Offices to induce those- paupers eligible for old age pensions to apply for such, in view of the re- laxation of the law allowing Guardians lo supplement the pensions by relief in casts where it was deemed necessary. The following resolution from the Rugby Unon was endorsed by the Board:—"That tiis Board are of opinion that the whole cost of education under the Education Act, 1902, and the main roads should become a national charge, as it would make for greater efficieley and become a real benefit to the communit; On the proposition of Mr. John Morgm, seconded by Mr. J. R. Griffiths, the followng r resolution from -the Builth Union was dso adopted That the Board of Guardians ofer I a strong protest agahist the unnecessary in- crease in the price of meat, and call upon ',ho Government to put an immediate stop to 1he practice of allowing 4jd. per head of sheep, and 2s. 6d. per head of cattle driven to :he station and loaded for dispatch to their (es- tination for butchers who send their pernits to the various marts. Furthermore, it :s high time that the fees paid to stock graders at difxo-ent markets be withdrawn amd their ler- vices discontinued, as such unnecessary ex- penditure adds to the cost of buying, making life intolerable to all l'ving on small pre-var incomes; and that -every increase in the pice of food of the people brings unbearable hard- ship upon the poorest class of the commun,ty, which is quite unable to protect themselves." Copies to be sent to the Prime Minister, Pre- sident Ministry of Health, the Food Controller, Members of Parliament, and to every Beard of Guardians in Wales.—Mr. J. R Griffths said the Government was the greatest profiteer of all A protest by Swansea Union against the extortionate price of milk was unanimously adopted.—The question of appointing members to succeed Mrs. Edwards, Llangwyryfon, and Mrs. Lloyd, Llanilar, as members of the Boarding-out Committee was relegated to the Committee.

David Davies, ex-sold er, Capel Seion, mason, applied for five acres of Rhoserchan; but the tenant said the fields adjoined the road, were under seed and convenient to the house.—The Committee was also asked to interview the parties in this case.

I I Protection In All Weathers THE BURBERRY In downpours of rain or searching wind, the man protected by The Burberry carries on with the comforting assurance that, however severe the conditions, his weatherproof will see him through the worst. Its densely-woven, yet self-ventilating material provides the most effective safe- guard available, and to make security more sure, it is lined with proofed check or silk which, in addition to increasing its defensive powers, ensures comforting warmth when there's a chill in the air. Voluminous in design, and made in airy- light cloths, it allows perfect freedom for every movement, and is so feather-light that it can be worn or carried without its weight being felt. Unlike coats proofed with rubber, or lined with air-tight agents. The Burberry main- tains natural ventilation, and fully satisfies the most enlightened hygienic principles.
