I THE NEATH TRAGEDY A SENSATIONAL STOfiY. With the funeral of the victims of the Nqith triple tragedy, which took place quietly at Llantwit Cemetery on Saturday morning, the last chapter in a lmman ￼ full of pathos and mystery, is w f'itMS. The last wish of the dead woman ;a.- observed for all three victims were buried together. Shute's widow paid the luuerrti expenses of her husband, Mrs. Cecil for her adopted daughter, and the money found in the baby's box was usod ior the burial of the murdered child. The ry.or<¡latives were the only mourners at t.tinal scine. Our Neath correspondent writes that cver41 remarkable ft:atur have trans- pired in the courw of the investigation mio the tragedy. When the event w?s disoovered the police gave the narate of the vietims as Mr. E. C Yorke, hits wife, *nd their three months' old baby. Before the-holding of the inquest, however, it had been discovered that their real names were Will. Henry Shute and Edith Summers. and that the baby bad been called Fanny Yorke. Y:ill be remembered that at the coro- o&r'jS inquiry Shute's widow, to whom the deceased had been married 14 years, said that he left her last year, stating that lie was going to Bournemouth, and the next t?tftrrehe heard ni him was that his clothes had been found en the beach. Mrs. Cecil, who had adopted Miss Sum- metis in her youth, told the court that the girl was supposed to have married an Eric Yorke, who was returning from Johannesburg. She discovered when she visited the couple in August that she was not with Yorke. but living with 6hate, who had taken over the tenancy of,th,e Star Inn, Penydre. The inquest story took 'us no further towards the solution of the mysterv. It now transpires that Yorke was the de?d woman's fiance, and that he came I to England last Christmas to marry her. It was in January that Yorke and Miss Summers met at Bournemouth, and it Wa.s. at the same time and place that j Shute's clothee were found on the beach there, and his death presumed. As far as we can discover, since that time there has been no news of Yorke. As we have stated, Shute cerms to have assumed the name of Yorke, and it is alleged that he had in his possession documents in the name of Yorke. When ¡ he was granted the license of the Star Inn the testimonials included a letter of itroduction from an influential per- wu it? Johannbtlrg. Shute and the d4dwoman came to Neath last February a honeymoon couple. The only man who is able to solve the I mystery, if he can be found, is Yorke.
IF A CHILD IS CROSS, FEVERISH AND SICK, Look, Mother! If Tongue is Coated, I F Cleanse the Little Bowels with t "California Syrup of Fills." Children love this "fruit laxative," and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely. "A child simply will not stop playing to empty the bowels, and the result is that they I)ect,m,3 clogged with waste, the liver becomes sluggish, the stomach is dis- ordered, and then your little one becomes d: feverish, and does not eat, sleep, or behave naturally. Often the breath is l.ad, and system "stuffy" with a cold; the child has soro throat, stomach-ache, or diarrheLa. Listen, Mother! See if tongue is coated, then give a teaspoonful of California Syrup of Figs," and in a few hours all the constipated waste- matter. sour bile and undigested food pass oilt 'of the system, and you have a healthy, playful child again. Millions oft mothers give California Syrap of Figs," because it is perfectly harmless; children love it, and it never fails to act on the stomach, liver and bowels.

Notwithstanding the numerous and I .important public o?ces which he n?w Jim's," it is very improbable that he will refuse the offer of his colleagues, an offer ,-w,liieh is practically unanimous and per- feetly sincere. During the last few years wiblic honours have been showered upon Neath-'s Deputy Mayor, and in the HtQrjimn of his life—a life spent in the rorrice rf the public—the invitation is alhios* irresistible having regard to the J^ssibilities of the new year being one of HM meet important in the » history of the ancient borough of Castelnedd. <J An ardent eisteddfod wr- and a Welshman who can sing the 'an- gii^ge of the Bards—lie will be of impor- tant service to the town as the guiding spirit of the "National."

BALDWINS LIMITED I LARGE EXTENSIONS AT POM TALBOT Satisfaction with the policy of the board of Baldwin's Ltd, was expressed at the annual meeting of .ihareh'.ilders held in Birmingham on Tuesday afternoon. Col. John Popor Wright (chairman) re- gretted that the directors were unable to prevent the usual statement of accounts and balance-sheet. The directors be- lirved that the profits of the company for the past year were amply sufficient to enable them to recommend theopayintiit ot what had legally to be called the second interim dividend for the year ended June 30th last. equal to the pre- vious year's final di, namely. at the rate of 7! per cent., and a bonus ol 2! per cent., free of income tax. A further meeting of the shareholders would be called, when accounts would be presented, but no further dividend recom- mended. At Port Talbot Steelworks they had completed large extensions. The new blast furnace, coking plant, steel fur- naces, and. mills in course of erection on the new site at Port Talbot were rapidly advancing. The Gowerton works had dw been extended. At Panteg, too, very large extensions had to be made. They had, in conjunction with the lirymbo Steel Company, formed a company en- titled the Oxfordshire Ironstone Com- pany, Ltd., and had taken leases of In rg;- tracts of ora in the neighbourhood ot Banbury. A railway was being constructed which the Oxfordshire Ironstone Company would eventually take over at the expiration of the period of control. Something like one and three-quarter millions had to be ex- pended to moet the demands of the Ministry in their various work. Th« whole of the work had been taken in hand at the request of the Ministry of Munitions, and part of the exptyiditure incurred will be borne by them. No works would be better equipped for the manu- facture of a share of the world's steel re- quirements at the end of this most disas- trous war than theirs. The directors were pleased to report that Colonel W. Charles Wright and Mr. J. ,0. Davies had been appointed managing directors for the period of ten years. The Chairman moved a resolution con- firming the dividends already published. Mr. Roger Beck seconded, and the reso- lution was carried. Replying to a vote of thanks, the Chair- man 6 aid the past year had been a very hard one, and there was a very hard year ahead. Patriotism had a great deal to do with the way in which the work had been borne. The directors would be able to produce next year quite as good results from one of* they hoped, the best busi- nesses in the country.
CROWN SPELTER CO. The S-tth ordinary general meeting 0: the English Cro'wn Spelter Company, Ltd., was held at Port Tennant, on Tues- d-ay, Mr. Reginald Francis (chairman of directors) presiding. The Chairman explained that the meet- ing was only a formal one. Owing to war conditions, they were unable to pre- sent the accounts in complete form. He was able to inform the meeting, however, that a dividend of 21 (less tax) had been paid. They were a controlled establish- ment, and the year's working had been quite satisfactory. On the motion of the chairman, secon- ded by Capt. Richardson, the re-election of Mr. W. H. Edwards as director was unanimously decided upon. The chairman explained that extension ne chairman expprlza;i;n ?cled with. 'I' l ie work had been proceeded with. The Government paid two-thirds of the charge for thi6 extension out of the excees profits o? the company. A shareholder ask<-d what the position was with regard to the lease. The chairman said that he bad no doubt that negotiations with the Earl of Jersey would produce satisfactory results. Thti leaee had about eight years to run. In reply to a vote of thanks the chair- man anndunocd that they had beaten every record. It was understood that when ac- counts were completed a further meetipg 1 would-be liold.
