-h_ j LLANWRDA BURGLARY. WHAT A CONSTABLE OVERHEARD. NATIVE OF TRECASTLE. John Davies (Mountain Ash) and Lewis Wil- liams (native of Trecastle) were again brought up before Llandovery magistrates on Wednesday. Both prisoners, who pleaded not guilty, were charged with breaking and entering Llanwrda Post office and stealing therefrom postal-orders to the value of X132 6s 71d, together with the sum of X12 5s 5Jd, the property of the Postmaster- General, and k2 and a gold ring, the property of the postmistress, Mrs Rachel Davies. P.s. Deans (Llandovery) produced a cast of the footprints found leading from the back door of Llanwrda Post Office to the main road, and they corresponded with the boots worn by prisoners. P.c. Jenkins recited conversations which he had overheard between prisoners in the police-cells. Davies said, "We must have been very drunk that night." Williams said, "Yes, that is where we lost it." Davies further said, "We would have been cocks of the walk if it were not for you and that Williams .replied. "They have not found it yet." Other evidence having been given, accused were I committed for trial.
Our portrait is of Mr W. G. Hoare, of Kingsley Avenue, Dayentry, Northants, who writes :— "I had one of the most severe attacks of eczema on the face that any man, I should think, ever saw, my face being one mass of sores from ear to ear. I was under medical treatment for some time, and, getting no better, began to be down- hearted, when a friend persuaded me to try 'Clarke's Blood Mixture.' I found myself get- ting better before I had finished the first bottle, so I continued with it until I had taken six bot- tles. I should have written before, but I wanted to be sure it was a permanent cure first. It is now some years since I was cured, and I have never had the slightest signs of any return." Clarke's Blood Mixture is composed of ingredi- ents which quickly expel from the blood all im- purities from whatever cause arising; that's why it can be relied on jto effect a lasting cure in all cases of Eczema, Scrofula. Scurvy. Bad Legs, Abscesses, Boils, Pimples, Sores of all kinds, Glandular Swellings, Blood Poison, Rheuma- tism, Gout, &c. Over 50 years' success.

I I Children's Cotznev i BY "UNCLE TOM." i I • Brecon, May 2nd, 1916. My dear nephews and nieces,—I am pleased to inform you that we have had another successful competition—the .rcesult of which will be an- nounced next week. I give below two more of the highly commended essays in 'March competition, and I am sure you will find them interesting and instructive. The remainder of the examiner's comments are also given below.—I remain, your affectionate UNCLE TOM. I
EXAMINER'S COMMENTS. I March Essays. I Commended. I 22nd. Miss Gladys Davies (Llowes, aged 10).— English would be improved, if simple sentences were used. General intelligence was fairly good. The essay lacked style throughout. 23rd, Master 'Morgan Walters (Senny, aged 12). -General intelligence, very good; writing, good; spelling, fairly good: English, good. Many capi- tal letters are used for common nouns. 24th, Miss i-t\Tagale Davies (Sennybridge, aged 13).—Writing, very good intelligence, fairly good; English, good. The essay was fairly good. 25th, Miss Elsie Davies (Senny, aged 12).— A good descriptive essay. Writing should not have been done on double-lined paper for a scholar of twelve years. The letter revealed many inter- esting facts. 26th, Master Alec Wallace (Crickhowell. aged 12).—English, weak; essay, not descriptive en- ough, and more could have been written about the lake itself. 27th, Master Thoma-s H. Jervis (Llangorse, aged 10 years).—A good style of handwriting, but it was somewhat spoilt by carelessness. English was poor and several capital letters were placed before common nouns. The conjunction, "and," need not be used so frequently. The use of simpler sentences would be much better. 28th. Master J. C. Williams (Crickadarn, aged 11 years).—Intelligence, good: writing, fairly good; English, rather weak and faulty; spelling, good. This competitor should, in time, become a good essay writer. 29th, Miss Edith M. Parry (Upper Chapel, aged 10 years).—The writing of this young competitor, with practice, will soon be good. English was rather weak throughout. Figures should always be written in composition. The general tone of the essay was fairly good for a child of ten years. Persevere, Edith, and you will be a prize-winner some day 30th, Miss Nancy Harner (Crickhowell, aged 11).—A fairly good essay: English, weak; writ- ing. fairly good but the style required more care. 31st, Miss Florrie Morris, Brecon, aged 14).— Intelligence, fairly good; writing, fair; English, fairly good: and spelling, fairly good. 32nd. Master Win. Williams (Senny, aged 12). —Writing needed attention. Spelling was per- fect. As to the English the sentences were a little too complex. General intelligence was fair, but not sufficient was written of the lake itself. 33rd, Miss Frances Probert (Crickhowell, aged 12).—Writing needed attention, and, also, the English. The essay was not descriptive enough. 3M,h, Miss Bessie Davies (Senny, aged 11).— Handwriting, good, but the essay should have been written an single lines. English needed a groat deal of attention, as it was very weak. The essay lacked style. 35tli, Master Ben Jones (Crickhowell, aged 13). -English throughout was very weak. Ben made use. in one case, of a double superlative-" most prettiest." If he would study the rules of Eng- lish composition he would have a better chance of success. Writing was decidedly back-hand. Ben should try and develop an upright style of writing. 36th, Miss Margaret Evans, Senny, aged 12).-— English, poor; writing, fair; intelligence, fair: and rather a poor essay for a girl of 12. Try and do better, Margaret 37th, Miss Mabel Bounds (Cusop, aged 12 years).—English, 'weak. and, in many sentences, no capital letters were used. Intelligence was fair, and writing good. 38th, Master Arthur J. Eckley (Garthbrengy. aged 10).-Artliur must read more, and improve his subject-matter. Writing also needed atten- tion. 39th, Miss Dorothy Belcher (Senny, aged 11).— English, very, poor; writing, weak; and intellig- ence, fair. Dorothy should spend more time read- ing. and she would then be able to write a better essay. 0 Yery Highly Commended. LLANGORSE LAKE. Llangorse Lake lies in the valley between Mynydd-Troed, Llangorse hill and Allt. From Llangorse hill it looks like a great leg of mutton. The south eastern end is the deeper, because at this end the liills are so near the lake that they practically form its edge, whilst, on the western end there are no hills, only high banks and these slope gently away from the lake. The lake's feeders are Llynfi and Cui. The Llynfi runs in on the south-easterly side. The Cui flows rapidly down from Mynydd Troed, through the village of Llangorse. The other Llynfi flows out at the northern side. It is the overflow of the lake, and is cleaned out every year. There is an island near the landing stage on Llangorse Common. It was made by the old Welsh people, who lived there for safety from wild animals. Even now the oak piles can be seen with which they used to build it. The best known fish of the lake are the pike. eel, perch and roach. There are many kindt, of water-fowl there, viz., duck, coot and grebe, and the moorhen stays there and builds her nest in the rushes round the lake. Sometimes we see swans, and wild geese flying high overhead. The lake has many legends about it in Welsh history. It is a very beautiful lake. On a sum- mer evening the water looks red with the reflection of the sun. The birds in the rushes sing pretty songs, and these attract many strangers. Master Willie Jenkins. Mark Cottage, Llangorse, aged 10 years. Llangorse hake, or hlyn-safaddan, is situate in Breconsihire in the parishes of Llangasty, Llan- gorse and Cathedine. It is the largest lake in South Wales, being about five miles round. At the sides it is shallow, but in some places it is as much as fifty feet deep. The chief river is the Llynfi, which runs through —people say—without mingling with the water of the lake. Mountains and hills are to be seen all round, the nearest being Allt-y-esgair. There is one small island. It is not a natural island, but a crannoge built thousands of years ago for protection from robbers and wild beasts. Manv kinds of plants and rushes grow in the water near the sides, and, on the shores, the
I Central Wales Federation of Free Church Councils. I COPY OF MEMORANDUM TO THE CENTRAL CONTROL BOARD. Sir,—At a meeting of the Central Wales Federation of Free Church Councils, held in Builth Wells on March 27th last, I was requested to represent to the Board of Control the urgent necessity of applying to the whole of Breconshire the restrictions upon the sale of intoxicating liquors which are enforced in the Munitions area. I beg to submit that the opportunities for drinking in the county of Brecon are excessive and are most injurious to the health and prosper- ity of the inhabitants. This county has many congested areas, as will be seen by the enclosed table which was prepared in 1913. In this table the horizontal lines represent the proportion of licensed houses per 1.000 of the population. Lord Peel's Report suggested the number should not exceed 1.3 houses in the towns and 2.5 in the country districts per 1,000. In this county, however, we find that the aver- age is 6.2 per 1,000. and all the towns greatly ex- ceed the limit of Lord Peel's Report, the three first being Penderyn (8.4), Hay (9.3) and Crick- howell (10.2). It is only fair to add that since this table was constructed a few licences have been referred, two of which are situated in Builth, but my Federation are of the opinion that far more drastic measures are essential in the future. The evils attendant on this congestion of the drink trade may be summed up under the follow- ing heads :— (1) Drunkenness. A certain amount occurs I not only in the towns but in the rural areas as well, especially among young farm hands who come into the Tillages in the evenings and espec- ially on Saturdays. Apologists for the drink trade state that there is much less drunkeness than formerly. This is perfectly true; but by drunkenness they refer to that degree which comes before the police courts. It must be remembered that many cases occur which are never noticed by the police, but at the same time are very detrimental to the morals of the inhabitants. 2. Chronic Drinking. The multiplication of licences and tne long hours that the houses are open afford every facility to those chronic drinkers who are the pests of the community. They may very rarely get acutely intoxicated, but they are imbibing several times a day, the effect being that I they dull the intellect, to ro b the wives and child- ren of money that should be spent on food and clothing, to render them inefficient and incapable in whatever walk of me they are engaged, to render them liable to diseases of vital organs which cause prolonged illnesses and lead to early, death, and not infrequently to homicide or suicide. The ;burden of maintaining the families is then thrown upon the ratepayer, and thus the citizen is penalised not only by losing an efficient producer but by having to support the widow and orphans. This aspect of the drink question is carefully ignored by the apologists for the "Trade." 3. Economy. Every penny that is spent on alcoholic liquor is an absolute waste to the com- munity. Alcohol is not a food, its supposed action as a. stimulant is fallacious, it does nothing to build up and maintain the body in health, it does everything to impair the tissues. Now over £ 160,000,000 has been spent annually on drink, deducting that part which goes to the Exchequer, at least £100.000,000 is wasted an- nually by the community. This is the direct loss. But there is an indirect loss, which is composed of the loss in wages due to sickness and death, the loss of maintaining the relatives, and the loss by the crime and insanity caused by alcoholism. The Empire is now in a struggle for her life. and all money that is waster is a source of Weakness to us and a gain to the enemy. The Federation are of the opinion that drastic measures should be taken to curtail to the greatest possible extent this waste of the country's health and producing power. 4. Social Work. The Federation are also in- terested in social work. Owing to the great wastage of war they are of the opinion that the future of the race should be safe-guarded by spec- ial attention to the mothers and the children. I have shown above the deleterious effect of a drinking father upon the family. If the mothers arc well fed and clothed their offspring will be healthier and better able to resist the infantile diseases that are so often fatal.. If both parents are abstemious, there will be fewer dullards among their offspring, who in the future may swell the ranks of the criminal classes. With abstemious parents, money which other- wise would have been wasted in drink, will now be spent on food, clothing, etc., which will all tend to keep our trade going and help to relieve the burden of taxation which will be on our shoulders for generations. The Federation regret to find that in most of the towns the most prosperous and influential per- sons are those connected with the drink trade. They not only dominate the social life, but to a great extent control the local administration, and thus tend to annul many proposals for the well- being of the community. In conclusion the Federation trust that the re- sult of this enquiry will bring Breconshire into line with those areas where restriction has been enforced, and that ultimately the county instead of being a black spot on the map of Wales, will have a brighter future in store for it.—I remain, sir, yours faithfully. u- W.

FOOTBALL IN INDIA. I Sergt.-Major C. Green writes from India, under date 1st April. A friendly match was played on the Soldiers' Gymkhana ground on Saturday the 25tli March, between teams of the 1st Devon Battery (R.F.A.) and Nos. 3 and 4 Platoons Brecknockshire Bat- talion (S.W.B.). A great deal of interest was centred in this match, the Gunners holding an un- beaten record until their arrival at Mhow, and "F" had a clean bill. Sergt.-Major C. Green was in charge of the teams. 1st Devon Batt. (E.F.A.). goal scorer Chau- ker (2). Goal Pte. Davies; backs, B. S. M. Stoneham and Dr. McKenzie; halves, Corpl. Wilkie, Br. Wisby and Dr. Wil&on; forwards, Br. Taylor (Capt.), Br. Mallinson, Gr. Chauker, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Bush. "F" Company Brecknockshire Battalion Goal scorer J. Davies (2). Goal, T. H. Hall; backs. T. E. Pugh and L. Humphreys; halves, E. C. Samuels, L/Sergt. C. Price (Capt.), T. Webb; forwards, S. Williams, J. Davies, W. A. Webb, E. 0. A. Phillips and W. Palk. Taylor lost the toss and was put to face the sun. Chauker kicked off in the presence of about 800 spectators, and sent the ball well forward and to the left, Samuels sending back to Phillips. Some neat passing between. "F's" right wing and centre spelt danger, a race for the ball between A. Webb and McKenzie, the former reaching it first was slightly hampered, and put hard over the bar. From the goal kick Davies put Taylor in possess- ion, who got well down the wing only to be rob- bed by Humphreys before he could centre. The leather was taken to the other end, Palk putting behind. Mallinson was put in possession, this player put out to Taylor, who made ground and centred well, Chauker netting. Some ten minu- tes after this success a misunderstanding between Humphreys and T. Webb the same player got through and scored the second goal. The in- fantrymen tried hard to score and the major part of the play was theirs. The gunner backs were a little vigorous at times, but the small Welshmen were their equal in this respect. A very warm half came to an end with the gunners leading 2 goals to nil. The second half opened by a, visit to Davies. An opportunity was spoilt by Williams who was off- side. Shortly after a neat bit of passing between W. A. Webb, Davies and T. Webb, Davies scored a nice goal amidst thunderous applause. Within five minutes of this event Davies got possession near the half-way line, and with an individual ef- fort ran through the defence and equalised. From now until the call of time both sides worked hard. Davies saved from W. A. Webb just on the line by falling on the ball, and it was eventually cleared at the expense of a corner. The flag kick was taken by Palk, who placed well, the superior height of McKenzie who got his head to it saving an almost certain goal. The leather was quickly transferred to the other end by Chauker. Hall ran out and in doing so collided with the former, both players coming down. Hall cleared but in coming down his head came in contact with Chauker's boot. He soon recovered however and the game was resum-
REGIMENTAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. HAY v. BRYNMAWR. .1 JLnis matcii was piayea on tne JrCegnnertal ground on Monday, 27/3/16. Aldridge won the toss, and put "D" Coy. to face the sun, a stiffish breeze was blowing across the ground and this cooled things somewhat. Mid-field play took up fifteen minutes, when Lewis received on the right made ground and swung in a splendid centre, the goalie punching away in the nick of time. A visit was next paid to Woodley, who was called upon to save a shot from Aldridge at the expense of a corner. Thomas took the flag kick, and this was cleared. Muddiman received and with neat foot and head work opened the score for "D." From the centre kick "B" Company were very unlucky in not equalising. Edwards got in the way of a shot from Powell. Shortly before the half closed Edwards netted for "B" from close in. Muddi- man was extremely unlucky in not finding the net, putting just inches wide with the goalie beaten. Play was transferred and Aldridge sent in a high shot. the goalie jumping and touching over. Half-time 1 goal each. The second half opened with "B" pressing, and this pressure was kept up for some time, shots going just wide from Aldridge, Powlell, Edwards and Thomas. Powell wrenched his instep and had to retire. From a goal kick Bannister, who sent well up the field to R. T. Lewis, centring, Muddiman netted a nice goal. From now to the end of the game both sides pressed in turn. Dav- ies in stopping a rush handled in the area. Car- ter took the kick and scored on the goalie's left. Time was called with "D" leading 3 goals to one. Referee 'Sergt.-Major Green.

The teams were not at full strength, so an even game was expected. A strong cross wind interfered with the play to a very great extent. Referee :Sergt..Major C. Green. Brecon: Goal, Lichfield; backs, D. J. Davies and D. G. Davies: halves, W. J. Davies, Thoro- good and H. H. Price-; forwards, J. Wood, W. B. Martin, J. T. Williams, Holleyhurst, Sergt. J. Martin. Crickhowell: Goal, Moss; backs, C. Edwards and F. R. Jones; halves, Johns, Saunders and Dobson; forwards, L/Sgt. Griffiths, Holland, A. Edwards. Liddiard and Dunn. Edwards lost the toss and was put to defend the town goal. From the centre kick a visit was paid to Lichfield.,Dai Davies clearing, and there were many lost opportunities. T. Williams hit the cross- bar with the goalie well beaten, C. Edwards bring- ing off a good clearance. Shortly after'. J Martin bit the upright, the ball rebounding to Iloilyhurst who put behind. At the other end Holland when well placed put behind. The leather was quickly transferred, W. B. Martin centred, Hollyhurst shot but there was nothing behind it. Moss play- ed it out to Saunders, but before he could clear Tim Williams netted. There was no further score in this half. "A" Company, 1 goal; "C" Company, nil. The second half cpened out strongly, "C" set- ting up a great attack, "A's" defence being kept busy. A. Edwards missed a splendid opportunity when well placed, but being over eager he put wide A little mid-field play and Williams was again set in motion, beating the backs he sent in a beauty. Moss was lucky in touching this over ,for a corner. J. Martin took the kick and placed splendidly, and F. R. Jones cleared. Just before time was called Holland sent in a shot along the ground. Lichfield not etxpecting it only just saved at the expense of a corner, and this proved abortive. Full-time score: "A" Company, 1 goal: "C" Company, nil. HAY v. YSTRADGYNLAIS. Played on the Regimental ground on Thursday, 30/3/16. Bannister won the toss and put Taylor to face the sun. Bevan kicked off and tracks were at once made for "D's" goal. Woodley was called upon to clear, play was transferred to the other end, Davies having to handle, and both teams were striving hard. From a run down and centre by Carter, Muddiman had the hardest lines possible, putting straight into Davies' hands. The leather was quickly transferred to the other end when Drapier opened the scoring with a nice shot. A run by Goddard came to nought, Baldwin putting behind. An effort taken part in by Edwards, Rees and I. Bevan resulted in the last scoring an easy goal. Shortly after the same player scored another point from close in. From the centre kick a run by Muddiman and the inside men was nearly successful, Davies saving almost on the line. Shortly after the same player hit the upright, the ball going behind. A misunder- standing between F. G. Cooke and Woodley let Bevan through to score the fourth goal. Half-time "H" 4 goals: "D" nil. The second half was more evenly contested. "D" were slightly superior in mid-field and kept up a continuous attack. Carter had very hard lines, a shot from an acute angle going just over. R. T. Lewis put just wide. Mason making a clearance handled in the area. Carter took the I kick and scored to Davies' left. A few minutes later A. H. Lewis handled in the penalty area. Miller took the kick and made no mistake.

"Salmon, as I have shown," says Mr H. A. Bryden in relating some fishing stories in the cur- rent number of "Chambers' Journal," "have been taken in all sorts of odd ways, but never, I sup- pose, was one of these strong and plucky fish killed with a feebler or more absurd instrument than one captured four years ago since in a Wefcsh river. It was close to Rhayader Bridge, on the Wye, in Radnorshire. A lad, using a sixpenny rod, a pennyworth of line, and a worm as lure, managed to hook a nine-pound salmon just below the bridge. The salmon, after a brief struggle, wrested line and rod from the boy's hands and then tried to get rid of its burden. A crowd collected, and one of the men presently got hold of the rod and managed to overcome the now tiring fish, which was eventually safely landed. It seems incredible, but the incident is a well-established fact."

Late Mr John Junkins. APPRECIATION FROM LLANDEWY. "A Friend" of the late Mr John Jenkins (Llan- dewy, Radnorshire), whose death and funeral re- cently appeared in our columns, writes :—"The late Mr J. Jenkins held several public offices. He was school-manager and used to pay Lord Ormathwaite's workmen. He was also exceed- ingly kind to the poor, and, if any of them were ill, he used to obtain tickets for them to enter hospital. His pony and trap were always at their service to convey them to the st-ation--iu fact, Mr Jenkins lived to do good. He was the kindest of employers, and his example in the home was a remarkable one, observing, as the Rev. J. H. Veal said at the memorial service, every laW of God. His was certainly no easy chair Chris- tianity. He was also a good friend to many. His three daughters, two sons-in-law and foul grand-children attended the memorial service at Llandewy, their birthplace, the deceased gentlemaD having lived at the Shop there for 30 years. A touching letter was received from Lord Ormathwaite (Mr Jenkins' old landlord), express- ing sympathy and regret. May his gracious iQ" fluence live after him in the lives of others.

CHILDREN'S CORNER—Continued. I lilies are very beautiful. l'ike, perch, roach and eels are the fish caught. Some of the pike are very large. Coots, kingfisher, wild duck, snipe, plovers and swans are some of the birds which live there, and, in summer, many others arrive, when also there are hundreds of starlings and swallows in the rushes. Sometimes otters are caught. The lake is fine for 'boating, and, in some hard winters, it freezes over, and affords excellent skating and sliding. Many visitors come to stay near the lake in the summer. S'everal old tales, or legends, are told of the lake. One is that there is a city buried under the water, the people being drowned for their wicked- ness and that even now you can sometimes hear the city bells.-Master Philip Griffiths, Llangasty School", aged 10 years. ed. Time came with no further score and a draw was certainly representative of the game.
