PRACTICAL FARMING BY A TENANT FABMEB. DAMP IN THE PIG STYES. The chief complaints From which pigs suSer in .winter, especially young ones, and a lot of the old .ones too, is cramp and rheumatics I hear of many complaints of this, and all should be wishful to avoid such crippling states, as they are improgressive and prohtless. Some say they are bred in the bone and come out in file ncsh. Hereditary diseases are numerous even in pigs, but in no class of animals .are they so easily stamped out, and the person who would let such pigs exist to perpetuate the f?I?gs ought to be as non-existing aa the animals objected ,to. Apart from all other causes of crippled pigs <,verdamp styes and pens are the most fertile sources .of the complaints. Even those with the most robust .constitutions succumb and weaklings are often made .almost helpless. Depend upon it pigs that have not .the free use and support of their pins are in a bad .way and totally incapable of being compensative to their owners. They are powerless to respond con- sistently, and they are all loggers. Invention .s ? ways better than cure. Do not wait till they get .lame before keping them dry and snug. A sure that comforting state constantly, and there will be no lameness to deal with or regret. Heavy p?s laden with fat are often tottery on their leg The cause of this is quite apparent and need not be con- founded with the hobbling of the lighter..LHOSe lame now may be restored by promptly keeping them very dry and comfortable. It will cure them quicker and more tasting than drugs. Their cots and s eep- mg places should especially be kept hry, and their outer runs must never harbour the wet however produced. TEMPERATURE OF DAIRY IN WINTER. A good deal that is Impossible is written of the temperature of the dairy in winter. The subject is usually discoursed on as if it was an easy matter to raise or lower the temperature Irrespective of the open-air conditions, while on every day in the farm- house dairy It is found that the temperatures rise an3 fall with the ontsidc fluctuations most regu- larly. As a matter of fact we trouble very little about the temperature of the dairy in winter, as solving as it corresponds with the outer air it is not of a nature that will give trouble. It may rise to 50 degrees or 55 degress, or fall below the freezing -point, but neither extremes are offensive. On the average the winter temperature of the dairy is 40 degrees and this suits everything. If too cool for speedy churning or amiable butter-making these operations can be done in a warmer place. A lot of churning Is done by the 6re-sl<?e in winter. ROLLING YOUNG CORN CRDPS. Farmers generally are much more pleased with the state of their land and young corn crops to-day than they were last week end. Conditions were very unsatisfactory then as is shown In the deficient wheat yields that followed, but prospects of improvements are visible everywhere now. There will however be anxiety to do all possible to assist developments, and many will debate now whether the young corn crops should be rolled or not. The matter requires consideration from more than one point of view. If the soil Is of a loose, sandy, or spongy and moisture- harbouring nature, rolling down firm would answer best. If unrolled the slants will sicken and become yellow and some probably perish, but if the land is 'more or less clay and loam of a firm texture rolling is best left alone. When adhesive soils are rolled in winter the rains beat them down HI1 tMe surface is caked and then the plants have to struggle and are hindered, but If the surface remains as left by the harrows there will be na crust. Indeed it will be- come friable, an acceptable state. A rough, un- smooth surface has its advantages. It Is a great shelter to the young plants, and when the spring comes the unrolled corn take the lead. HORSES WITH COUGHS. Two readers this week complain of their horses being troubled with coughs. One has eight, and they are all coughing more or less, while the other has two, both affected. This Is a troupe ETways associ- ated with winter, and it Is extremely desirable that emcient remedies should be promptly employed be- fore. the ailment developes with influenza, which Is a terrible upset in the stable. If one horse begins to cough ten chances to one It goes through the whole stable, and lead to endless worry as a boost- ing horse is never fully capable at its work. It is hardly necessary to point out how coughs are ongi- nated. Sweats and chills In rapid successions are the main causes, and keping in draughty sheds and stalls are cough producers, and so are stables with hot airless atmospheres, where the horses are kept in artincial atmospheres, and stand a great chance of catcliing cold every time they are taken out. Good grooming and consistent ventilation are pre- ventatives, and the catching of colds rests to a great extent In the hands of a groom or horsemen. As a non-physicing remedy mixing one pint of linseed oil with the chaff and corn each evening at supper time will five great easement and often be a complete cure. Molassine Meal is another food sure of ex- ceptional merit. I have cured horses with it when they were boosting so bad that their wind was anected. This is very oppressive to the horse, and if remedied by food Instead of drugs it 'is an ad- vantage. Three pounds morning and evening is the quantity of Molasslne Meal I give. As to medicine the following Is a very excellent mixture: Powdered aniseed 3 ounces. Epsom's safrs 5 ounces, nitrate of potash 5 ounces, taitarised antimony 6 drachms. Divide Into 12 powders and give nightly In warm, soft food. GIVING INDIAN CORN TO PIGS, Indian corn Is one of the most fattening foods for pigs. It is not of a re.fining nature, but produces a coarse fat of a yellow colour, but It adds weight suickly, and that Is all many desire. In pig feeding It Is often given In the form of meal. In buying tins various grades are securable and some are fu.i of rubbish. It is a meal that lends itself freely to adulteration. Half corn could readily be passed off as a genuine meal. I am therefore all in favour of buying the whole corn and grinding it at home. Good or bad samples can readily be detected then. and the latter can be shunned. For pig feeding I am not very partial to it In meal form and prefer to give it whole. Pigs that receive a good square meal morning and evening, and a couple of handfuls of Indian corn at mid-day are usually nimble doers. They are never so happy as when cranching the corn. Look how their tails wag. A WIDEL" DISTRIBUTED BREED OF COW. Like Scotch men and women the Ayrshire cow is found the world over. During the past year the Ayrshire Cattle Society exported the following numbers:—United States of America 149. Canada 129, Findland 62, Japan 59, Sweden 8. South Africa 7. Russia 3, New Zealand 5. Spain 3, Brlt:gh East Africa 2, Queensland 2, and Roumania 1. KOHL RABI FOR LATE FEEDING. Kobl Rabi is such a charming food for cows and ,sheep that It is usually eaten all up quite early, and supplies end long before the shortage Is approved of. The fact is Kohl Rabi is consumed too soon. November is quite early enough to begin using it, and It ought to continue all through December. It 'kecp6 perfectly till then and later. As long as grass and cabbage or other green food is available reserve the Rabi. It Is when they are gone that the Kohl makes Its greatest work, and Is most valuable. It is far before turnips and a capital fore-runner to feed- ing on mangolds. It should be left where it grew till wanted and brought in and fed quite 'ircsh. It is devoured greedily by sheep, but as a milk-giving cows it Is superb and I am In favour of us- ing it in the mlik herd beiore anything else is 'thought of. Readers requiring advice or information by post must address their commuications to Farmer, c/o The Editor, and in all cases enclose stamped directed envelope.

JLLANDOVERY BOARD OF GUARDIANS The fortnightly meeting of this Board was held on Brtcfay, un<T&r tne presxrency o! ine rhairman, Aid. T. Watkins. There were also present Messrs. E. P. Lloyd, W. Mabon Davics, R. Lewis, W. Evans, Abernaint; D. C, Grimths; W. Evane, BIainau; W. Evans, Cross Inn; Thomas Williams, Isaar Williams, R. Thomas, T. PhiIIipe, W. Lewis, Bronfelin; Daniel Lewis, E. Davies, David Davies, D. Jones, Aocheth; Morgans, Ystradwalter; Lewis Roderick; the Rev. John Jones; the clerk, Mr. D. T. M. Jones; the master, Mr. David Evans; the relieving omoer, Mr. E, Williams, and Messrs. E. Williams and D. J. Morgan (surveyors). OUTDOOR RELIEF. Mr. E. Williams, P.O.. reported the number m receipt of outdoor relief for the week ending Novem- ber 19th to be 175, cost JB52 17s.; corresponding week last year 185, coet JB51 9s. 6d. For the week ending November 17th, 175, cost :B50 14s. 6d., correspond- ing week last year 185, cost J651 8s. 6d. IRON SLAG FOR ROADS. The Chairman said that the Master had placeo before him a letter which had been received fron. uio county surveyor the purport oi which was thai UH was desirous ot experimenting with Iron slag ob- tainable from the railway station on the roads. Ul this he wished to have some 30 tons broken at the workhouse by the casuals. After some discussion it was decided to postpone until next meeting the Board's decision as to the price they should ask for breaking the slag. fNMATES AND VAGRANTS. The Master reported the number of inmates last week to be 26; corresponding week last year, 25. This week 26 against 25 last year. Vagrants for the fortnight 138 against 119 corresponding period last year. Children attending school, 10.—The Master said that he had twenty tramps at the house the previous night. They all wished to remain in if they had been allowed that day, and one was outisde at that moment who wished to come before the Board. He wished to remain in the house to rest himself for a day or two. He did not complain of being unwell, but said that his boots were bad, so it was not necessary for him to send for tTie doctor. Further he performed his task all right. Another tramp was ill in bed. If he was to allow everyone with bad boots to remain lie would have 120 every week a'- the house. The Master further complained of the disturbance the tramps caused at the house. The vagrant referred to was then admitted, and it was explained to him that he could not õe allowed to remain for a day at the hou&e under the circum- stances. To help him along, however, Mr. E. P. Lloyd, the chairman. Mr. Mabon Davies, and others, rendered him assistance out of their pockets. THE COMING CENSUS. The Clerk drew attention to a communication with reference to the appointment of enumerators for the coming census which takes place in April next. it asked them to let members of their staff do the work.—The Chairman said there could be no objec- tion to that, and the other members concurred. CHRISTMAS DINNER. It was decided to give the inmates their usual Christmas dinner and to make the usual extr& allowance to outdoor paupers resident and non-resi- dent of Is. to adults and 6d. to children. OLD AGE PENSIONERS. Mr. Mabon Davies: What about the oM age pen- sioners? Are they to get it this year? He explained tnat he meant those who would become entitled at Tne end of this year. It was decided that they should oe included.—Mr. Richard Thomas said with refer- ence to those in receipt of outdoor relief at present that he believed that there were about 76 In then union who would become entitled to the old age pension in January next. He thought that thb guardians In the several parishes should assist by trying to get these people to get their forms filled now as soon as possible so that their cases could b<; discussed and passed by the 1st of January. Mr. David Daviee—The relieving omcer has been advised to do that about a month ago. Mr. L. Roderick—I think everyone over 70 in our parish has applied. Mr. Richard Thomas said the guardians came into Moser touch with them than the relieving omcer. The Relieving OfEcer did not think it was right lor him to do It. The Chairman—I don't think It is for the guard- ians to interfere, but they may give inofrmation. Mr. Richard Thomas said that it would mean a saving of so much a year to the guardians to get rhose entitled on the pension hst, and he felt tha: 11 was their duty to render them all assistance anu to try to convince them that It would be to their benent to make their applications. The Chairman and the Rev. John Jones qUê- t'oncd as to whether much saving would be effected the former observing that he believed that they would find In the end that they were rather de- ceived on that point. He thought Mr. Thomas had better leave the matter alone. Those entitled would soon find the way to get their pension. Mr. Mabon Davies thought that the position so far as t would affect them was not yet property understood.
Rural District Council A meeting of this body was held on Friday after the meeting of the Board of Guardians. Mr. Rees Lewis, BrownhUI, presided. TREASURER'S ACCOUNT. The Treasurer's account showed a balance of £4O 9s. 7d. APPLICATIONS FOR INCREASE IN WAGES. A petition was received from the rural district roads workmen applying to be placed on the same footing as the county roads workmen as to wages, etc., on account of the increased cost of living. Replying to questions, the Clerk said they were now paid 18s. a week. The county wage is 21s. per week. Mr. W. Evans (Cross Inn) said he noticed by the papers that road labourers in LIandilo were paid 24s. per week. Mr. Daniel Lewis said that a similar application by the road labourers to the Brecon Rural District Council was refused. Mr. Mabon Davies said that in the towns they were paid 24<3. and 25s., consequent on the increased cost of living. Mr. D. J. Morgan (surveyor) said that one of his workmen had been offered 24s. by the LIandilo sur- veyor, and so far as he knew he was going to accept the offer. Mr. David Davies said there would be no dim- culty in finding half-a-dozen to take his place at the present rate, but no doubt there were some who deserved more than they were paid at present, and should be paid what was paid by the county at present, but until their surveyors pointed out the meritorious ones he thought they should be treated all alike. Mr. Mabon Davies urged that they should treat their workmeri with consideration. By paying their workmen a reasonable wage they could get proper work done by them. There was something wrong somewhere in our economic and Industrial systems to account for the present troubles in the works. He went on to advocate an increase to meet the increased cost of living, retaining the good work- men, and getting rid of the bad ones. When con- ditions altered they couM If they thought fit. Mr. W. Evans (Cross Inn) seconded for similar reasons. Mr. D. Davies opposed the increase until they received reports from the surveyors differentiating the good from the bad workmen in their respective districts. The Oerk said he did not want to rise any dim- culties. but if an increase was made now it would affect Their balance by the end of the financial half- year. Mr. L. Roderick held that if Increases were to be made the proper time would be at the beginning of their financial year, when due provisions could be made in the estimates. Mr. Mabon Davies, who had previously suggested the 1st of January, expressed his willingness to fall in with Mr. L. Roderick's suggestion, viz., as from the 1st of April. Mr. Roderick said that in the meantime the surveyors would have ample time to pick out the good from the bad workmen. Mr. Mabon Davies pointed out that there was a. dcfference In the Hours worked by the county work- men In comparison with those of the district, those of the latter bein moie. On Saturdays they worked till 4 p.m. Mr. D. Davies (RhybIId) said that he knew men who, during the last three years, did not start work ti)I 9 o'clock In the morning and left at 3 and 4 o'clock in the afternoon. It was realty too bad to spend the ratepayers money in this way. He proposed that the matter be deferred. Mr. Daniel Lewis seconded. Mr. Evans (BIa!nau) complained of the time some men in his district started. The motion that the men be paid jEl a week as from the 1st of April, and the amendment that the application be not acceded to at present, were put to the vote. The amendment was declared carried by 11 votes to 4. Mr. Mabon Davies said they were doing what 1 was very wrong that day,, but this was how it would be unti! things were Improved. Mr. Roderick said that Mr. Daviee, of Rhyblid, ha<d made some very serious allegations as to the short hours worked by some of the men, and he thought that he should bring the instances under the notice of the surveyors, so that they could be brought before this Council. Mr. Davies rose to a point of order. The dis- cussion was now closed. Mr. Roderick differed. He was only touching on a very serious matter outside the application- those instances of alleged neglect on the part of the road workmen. They should be brought under the notice of the surveyors and by them before the Council. Mr. David Davies-Yes, and the surveyors know it very well. I have made serious charges and I can prove others still more serious. I can submit dates and eye-witnesses of everything that has hap- paned. Rev. John Jones said that at the present time the roads were very bad in the locality and under the circumstances he could not support the application for increased wages. They should consider the workman and the farmer who paid the rates. Mr. Mabon Davies having interpolated with a remark, The rev. gentleman said that when the roads were improved would be the time to apply for an increase. Mr. Jones (Accheth) was of opinion that the workmen were getting too little and should be properly paid. Mr. Evans (Cross Inn) held that they could not get the labourers to work harder without the sur- veyors being constantly after them. They should be more on their track, and should pay them sur- prise visits. Mr. Daniel Lewis having also complained, the discussion ended. An application was Deceived from the Parish Council of LIanfair-ar-y-bryn asking the District Council to take over a road 650 yards long. It was abutted at both ends by high roads. The application was supported by Mr. Daniel Lewis, Mr. W. R. Lewis, and Mr. L. Roderick. Mr. Mabon Davies moved, and Mr. Roderick seconded, that the application be acceded to on its being properly framed to the satisfaction of the surveyor. Reference was made to a road near Dolaucothy deferred on the last occasion so that the guardians of the parish might be present when it was dis- cussed. It required that widening or a retaining wall should be built. Sir James Hills-Johnes was willing to meet the representatives of the Rural District Council, and perhaps, it was thought he could be prevailed upon to grant the necessary land for widening the road. Mr. Ipaac Williams said it would be a very difficult matter to get a foundation for the wall. It was resolved that the representatives of Caio on the Council and the Surveyor wait on Sir James In respect to the matter. The roadmen applied for new cloaks, the old ones being worn out. It was resolved that the application be granted.
SfRIKING WELSH CURE PORT TALBOT WOMAN'S POISONED KNEES SPLENDIDLY CLRED BY ZAM-BUK. So helpless that she had to be lifted in and out of bed and almost distracted with pain was Mrs. Eliza Mortimer's condition before she gave Zam- Buk the opportunity to work a remarkable cure. Mrs. Mortimer lives at 30, Hafod Street, Port Talbot, South Wales, where she gave a Mid. Glamorgan Herald" reporter particulars of her distressing experience. 1, My right knee suddenly began to swell," she said, and the skin turned a deep blackish-blue colour. Two days after I first noticed the swelling the knee was so painful and discoloured that I can- suited a doctor. He told me I was suffering from blood-poison. I don't know how I got the poison unless it came as a result of constant kneeling when doing my housework. The doctor gave me lotions, and I poulticed the knee, but it got much worse. The gnawing pain kept me awake night after night. I had to be helped in and out of bed, and often I would sit on the edge of the bed, afraid tq put my foot to the floor because of the awful pain that T knew would shoot up and down my leg. I can liken the pain to nothing better than the feeling that my leg was being torn to pieces. For weeks and weeks I was in this dreadful state. A friend had constantly urged me to try Zam-Buk, and at last. seeing that every form of the doctor's treatment had brought no Improvement, I decided to give this balm a trial. I must admit that I didn't expect Zam-Buk to succeed where everything else had failed. The nrst few applications of Zam- Buk. however, convinced me that there was real merit in this pure balm, so I eagerly persevered with Its use. As the result of careful perseverance with Zam- Buk, the swelling soon began to go down, and the die?Qttoratton of the skin gradualty disappeared. Zam-Buk also soothed the pain wonderfully, and I was able to ge some greatly-needed sleep. All trace of the poison was finally removed from my r,I,Ailn. wbilli Zam-Buk left perfectiv 4oundi and healthy. I am now able to do my work ag&In, and I have not the slightest pain or discomfort about my leg."
THE VACANT JUDGESBIP APPOINTMENT OF MR. J. LLOYD MORGAN. Last week we announced that in the opinion of people who should know, the appointment of Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan, K.C., In place of Judge Bishop to the county court judgeship for the West Wales district was a certainty. This turns out to be true, for Mr. Lloyd Morgan's appointment Is now oScIaIIy announced. The appointment is one that will be received with universal approval, for Mr. Lloyd Morgan's career both at the bar and in politics has been linked with the pleasantest associations, and has earned for him the respect and friendship of all classes and parties In West Wales. And this not because of any uncertainty of views. He is a pro- nounced and staunch Liberal, but he has never been able to subscribe to the opinions of the extreme section of the Radical party. His condemnation of the education revolt in Wales was unmistakeable and brought upon himself the anger of the Lloyd George party, Including a large unmber of his own constituents. Mr. Lloyd Morgan, however, with- stood the shock with easy good humour and very soon lived down what at one time looked like a dangerous agitation against his bold on his con- stituency in West Carmarthenshire. The result left him evcntuaHy not only with the gratitude of the supporters of voluntary schools, but the respect of those in his own party whose mildest criticism of him was that he was ''too much of a gentleman" to be their member. At the bar his keenness as a cross-examiner and his fairness and sound judgment brought him a large practice, and at one time it was an axiom that with a Carmarthenshire jury addressed by Mr. John Lloyd Morgan, the success of a client was assured. It will be the general opinion that His Honour Judge John Lloyd Morgan will make an ideal county court judge of the district of which his native town forms a centre. His Honour is the youngest son of the late Prof. Morgan, of Carmarthen, whose name was a house- hold word in the district and who was much be- loved. He was educated at Greenhill School, Tenby, and TattenhaH School, and took his B.A. degree in Cambridge in 1884. He took silk in 1906 and was appointed Recorder of Swansea in February, 1908. THE RETIRING JUDGE. References were made at the Llanelly County Court on Monday to the retirement of Judge Bishop. Mr. D. G. Rees, on behalf of the legal profession, said the relationship between Judge Bishop and the advocates who appeared before him was of the happiest possible character. As a judge he had done excellent work, and they all hoped he would soon regain his health. Mr. J. Lewis Phillips said Judge Bishop was a conscientious man and a sound lawyer. Mr. J. Lloyd Morgan, acting judge, said he had practised before Judge Bishop for many years, and his experience tallied exactly with that of Mr. Rees. It would be impossible to appear before a judge who treated those who cams before him with more kindness and consideration than Judge Bishop. To lose a man of such great standing an? character as Judge Bishop was a great loss.
CARMARTHEN COUNTY SATURDAY, November 19th, before Mr. Dudley WillIams-Drummond, Hafodneddyn (chairman); Mr. D. L. Jones, Derlwyn; Sir Owen Phihpps, Amroth Cast7; Rev. A.

Defendant pleaded guilty and said he 'did not know about this Act. It appeared that the child was very severely burnt, and died shortly after the accident, An inquest was held, and as a result that prosecution followed under the new Act. Supt. Samuel Jones said that the Act was not as well-known as it should be in the country, and he advocated the posting of placards all over the county setting forth the provisions of the Act. It should be in both languages..—The Chairman said the Bench sympathised with the defendant in the loss he had sustained through the death of his child, but had the proper preeautin ben taken the accident would not have occurred. It is of the greatest im- portance that the Act should be known and observed and he heartily concurred with the suggestion cf Supt. Jones. In the circumstances the case would be dismissed on payment of 5s. costs. Thomas Ellis (collier), LIydiadmawr, LIanarthney, was also charged with a similar offence.

Prosecutor said that on the Friday in question de- fendant and his fellow-servant came to the inn between 8 and 9 p.m. The defendant asked for an ounce of tobacco, and then asked for two pints of beer. Receiving a shilling he gave defendant three half-pence change. Prosecutor said that he had re- ceived other money that day but gave no change. Between 6 and 7 p.m. he had a sovereign which he put in his right hand pocket. AÍter closing up time when counting his money he found the sovereign missing. Re visited Cilmarch farm some time after- wards where he saw defendant. He askëd him to show the three half-pence he gave him but he re- fused, saying he had not one as he had spent them all. He went home then and did not do anything that week, but in consequence of what he had heard spoke to P.C. Thomas Richards. William Davies, fellow-servant of the defendant, said that on their way back from the Upland Arms to uumarch, defendant told him he had a sovereign in change Instead of a half-penny. He showed it witness in the cart-nouse. He would not believe him until he had showed it. When prose- cutor came there he called out for James and told him he had lost a sovereign. He only asked him to search his pockets, but defendant replied "I am honest. You gave me three half-pence—one a new half-penny." Witness furtner seated that defendant spent the sovereign at KiJweIIy Fair, changing the coin at the Corporation Arms on the 29th ult. Wit- ness was asked If he had anything further to say. answered, "No. sir, but the defendant's charged with stealing a sovereign. It was not stolen but given to him In change." When I told the defen- 'dart. that he had better take it back, he said "It's just as handy to me as to him." P.C. Richards, Ferryside, deposed that when he visited Cilmarch Farm he met defendant at the gate and charged him with stealing a sovereign from the prosecutor. In reply he said, "I remember being at the L lJland Arms on Friday. October 28th. I had Is. going there and I had 1 pint of beer and an ounce of tobacco. I had 2s.6d.wlth my master to go to Kidwelly Fair." Defendant said. ''Now, sir, I must tell you the truth. I went to Upland Arms. I had a sovereign in change Tnsfead of a half-penny." He further added, "I am sorry I did not tell Davies, Upland Arms, about it when he came to me at the cart-house." The Chairman said that defendant should have given the jBl back wnen asked to. instead of deny- ing it. Such conduct was theft, but as the Bench hoped the prosecution would be a warning to the defendant, they would not send him to prison, but fine him JE1 and coste. Tne Court then rose.

I had fearful headaches; my appetite left me, and I loet nesh. "In time the weakness became terrible; I could hardly manage any exertion without fainting. My tegs and feet swelled to about twice their natural size, and were extremely painful. "Later on, I was seized with sickness every day. My on)y nourishment was beef-tea and milk, and at last I had to take to my bed. Altogether four or nve doctors attended me, but medicine did not help me a bit. It was feared that I was in con- sumption and would never be well. But. one dav I read in a newspaper an account of a cure by Dr. William- Pink Pills. Mother sent for a supply of the Pills for me, and after & few days' treatment my appetite got keen. As I persevered with the Pilis the attack of sickness left me, and the swelling disappeared from mv legs and feet. After a time the palpitation and 'headaches ceased to trouble me. I got a good nights' rest, ? and soon could walk about the house. In time the Pills gave me a good supply of Rich, Red Biood: I got well and strong, and all trace of pain and weakness left me."
