Homeless Children. MOTHER'S INDIFFERENCE: FATHER ADDICTED TO DRIK, At a meeting of the Board of Guardians on Thursday last, an application was made by j, Alexander Rae, a tailor, for the admission of his two children into the Workhouse. The Chairman (to Rae): You do net think woe are going to keep your children in here. It has not come to that yet. In reply to Mr. W B. Jones, applicant said he had a father and mother, but they lived in Glasgow, and he could not send the child- ren there.. The Chairman: You must look out for a home. If every married man got two child sen, and had to get somebody else to find, a home for them, what would happen? The Master pointed out that the applicant's wife and children had been mostly in the house during the past two years. The Clerk: Did they pay? The Master: No. The Clerk: Why did you not get an order against the man? The Master: Rae deserted her, and he was apprehended in London. The Chairman (to Rae): You ought to be ashamed of yourself to desert your wife and children. The Master, in reply to the Clerk, said that Rae had another illegitimate' child, who was kept -by someone else. Mr. Pugh: Where is your wife now? Rae: She has been away, but I believe she has returned now. Mr. W. B. Jones: Was it not said before the magistrates that you \fere addicted to diink i Rae: Yes Mr. Jones: Nobody would like to take you in if you continue to drink. Who not buckle to. and give it up entirely? You would then be* able to keep a home for your wife and; children. The Master: He promised the magistrates 10 find a home for the children, but he has not done so. Mr. W. B .Tunes: It was stated that when you had money you spent it on drink. If I wcav you I would give it up. and get a house. Rae: J would like to get them into a home. Mr. W. B Jones: The Workhouse is not a borne for your children You are able to earn good money, and keep a home of your own. Mr. I'ug'h We have no -authority to take i them in here, when yon are able to keep them. The Chairman If you have been drinking. be a man and give it up. If your wife has gone wrong now, you went wrong before her. You show her that you are determined to go right now. and probably she will follow. Mr. Thigh: If the drink has mastered you, you master the drink for the sake of your wife and children. The Chairman: If you leave them here, we will take proceedings against you for allowing tlwiu to I >ec()tne chargeable to the l'nion. The applicant then left. -i I e ft. Mr Pugh thought the Board should assist the' applicant, in order to get him on his feet again. He would like the children to remain in the House for a. month. The Master: He only wants to get them 0111 of the way. Mr. W. B. Jones proposed that the Board authorise the Master to exercise every discre- tion, and get the children out so soon as pos- sible, and' this was agreed to.

Territorials' Field Day. The Llanelly sections of the Welsh Field Company of Royal Engineers, Yeomanry troops, and detachment of the 4th Welsh (for- merly 1st Y.B. Welsh) held a successful "field day on Saturday. A. general idea of the operations was that a red force had landed at Burry Port, and had advanced inland in the direction of Llandilo Finding a .superior blue force in front of him, the .commanding officer decided to retreat, and re-embark at Burry Port. The rear guard of the red force was under the command of Lieut. Bowen, and with him were Lieutenants Burn and John, Sub-lieutenant Dick, and Quarter-master Har- ries, Pembrokeshire Yeomanry. Their forces consisted of part of the Yeomanry Squad, one section of the Welsh Field Company of Royal Engineers, and G Company 4th Welsh Regi- ment. This rear guard took up a strong posi- tion, which included the rising ground be- tween Burry Port, Cwmbach, and Kidwelly roads, and-extellded thear front ic) command the main roads and surrounding .ountry. In this position they were attacked by the ad- vance guard of the blue force, under Lieuts. Hume Roderick, Trulxshaw, and Bishop, and Sergeant-Major Brown, whose forces consisted of half the Yeomanry Squad, F Company 4th Welsh Regiment, and one section Royal En- gineers. The advance guard, under the feint of an attack on the left, made an attack in force more in the centre of the position, while the Yeomanry and a smaller force worked round to the right of the position, with the object of overcoming and driving back the rear guard's left. After "cease fire," the troops wended their way across country into Borry Port, where tea was partaken of in the Council Schools. The umpires were Major N< dl. Capt. Bramwell Jones, and the Adju- taoi of the 4th Welsh, and after tea, in a brief resume of the operations, Major Nevill said the umpires were of opinion that the rear guard's men were well placed, and the out- post hue kept well under cover. The attack on the left was. too slow, and would have faded. The attack on the right succeeded against the rear guard's left, but the whole advance guard's attack would -have failed without reinforcements. The troops were inarched from Burry Port to Llaiiellv, headed by the band of the"4th Welsh Regiment. The turn-out was of considerable length, and sur- pas.sed any seen in Llanelly for some years.
