THE BABIES' MILK. Mothers' Protest March at Bristol. The Bristol Food Control Committee on Monday received a letter from the Food Ministry fixing the maximum retail price of milk at lid. per quart for November and December; January, Is.; February and March, lid.; and April, 10d. The Chairman said thnt the Committee had previously t^dvised the Ministry against such high prices. lie moved that the Committee should dpcline to publish such prices, and should repudiate all re- sponsibility for them. A Labour member seconded, and ex- pressed the belief that there was unseen influence at work at the Ministry. The Labour member said that retailers who sold at less than the maximum-were being intimidated bv trad e organisations. The resolution was carried unanimously. Later about 1,000 women, carrying babies, marched in procession through the crowded etieets to the Council House, where they handed a petition to the Lord Mayor protesting agair.st the high price of milk fixed by the Food Ministry, urge-d him to send copies of the petition to the Gorernment authorities, and, failing re- duction of price, pressed for the estab* lishment of municipal depots for the sale of milk. The procession carried banners inscribed, We want cheaper milk and God Save the Bnbier." The Lord Mayor promised to forward the petition as re- Quested.
LATE MR. REES REES. -J His Services for the Odd. fellows. With the passing of Mr. Rees Rees it is interesting to recall some of the out- standing incidents in the life of a very well-known Oddfellow. Born on January 17th, 1851, Mr. Rees was a native of the village of Bettws, Carmarthenshire. His father, John Rees, was a well-known contractor in the district. He was educated at the National and British Schools, and after. wards served for a short period as pupil teacher. In 1865, he entered the office of Mr. John Lloyd, of the Pantyclere Colliery and Brick Works, and it was here he made his first acquaintance with friendly society work, being initiated into the Ivorites' Lodge. WITH THE ODDFELLOWS. I He came to Swansea. in 1867, where he j rose to a high position with a leading firm of solicitors. On June 6th, 1,877, he was initiated into the Adelphi Lodge of the Swansea District of Oddfellows, Manchester Unity, and in tbo following December was appointed elective secre- tary, and in due course went through the lodge chairs. In 1884 he was elected Deputy Prov .G.M., and in the follow- ing year P.G.M. In 1896, he accepted an appointment with Messrs. Stockwood and Williams, Bridgend, and on his departure from Swansea was made the recipient of a pre- sentation by the members of his lodge. On the death of Prov. C.S. John Owen, in 1898, he was elected to that position. He was the first vice- president of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Con- I ference in 1908, and was elected presi- dent the following year. SERVICES RECOGNISED. I His invaluable services were recog- nised by the secretaries of the lodges and members of the district, who pre- sented him in July, 1915, with a gold watch, albert, pendant and pencil, the presentation being made by Sir John T. D Llewelyn, Bart. It was in 1887 that Mr. Rees married Mary, the daughter of the late Mr. Richard Bayne, of the Kensal Green Gas Works. He daily travelled between Swansea and Bridgend, and was always a picture of health. His loss will be deplored by many. 1
MIRACULOUS GLAMOR- GAN CURES. Children Tortured With Running Eczema Banished by Zam-Buk Five Years AQO-I No Trace of Disease Since. The remarkable skin healing ipower of Zam-Buk. was so clearly shown in the treatment of children's eczema at Pont- ardawe that the doctor advised continu- ance with this herbal balm. What Zam- Buk actually did was told to a Cambria Daily Leader" reporter when he called on Mr. T. Evans, at Primrose Cottage, Gellygron-road, Pontardawe, Glamorgan. Some months ago," aid Mr. Evans, a we noticed a rash on the fac and neck p? and nee], of our eldest bov, Willie. His sister Sarah was also similarly attacked. The rash developed into sores which spread, and both children were crying day and night. Big. inflamed patches ('¡.'me on their faces, and they were tormented with the awful pain and itching. Ordinary remedies fniled to give them relief. The children J got so bad we had to call in a. doctor, but without satisfactory result. We tried fur- ther ointments, but all in vain. The poor children were by now simply covered with the terrible disease, which we were told was eczema. Naturally I was on the look out for a likely cure, and after reading about Zam-Buk we decided to give it a trial. So we got some from the chemist and applied it to the children's faces and necks. We also cleansed the diseased skin with Zam- Buk Medicinal Soap. The result was splendid. This Zam-Buk treatment eased the irritation and softened the hard, un- sightly scabs. So marked was the improvement that the doctor asked my wife what she had used. She told him about Znm-Bnk. and he advised her to keep on with it. Well, we did so, with the result that Willie and Sarah were soon quite cured. Znm-Buk aJ;:o cured their baby brother, Evan John. who suffered badly from the same com- plaint. All three children now have a skin free from blemish, thanks to this remarknble Zam-Buk treatment. It is nearly five years since Mr. Evans made the above statement, and to-day be writes:—"There !iacri't been any trace of the eczema on the children since Zam-Buk ctirw] them." There is no questioning the benefits from a box of Zam-Buk. the rare herbal healer. whether used for Eczema, Ulcers, Poisoned Sores, KiiiJjworms, Scalp Sores', Piles, Pimples, Blotches, or other skin diseases, or for properly treating Cuts, Bruises. Burns, Scalds, Sprains, etc. Zam-Buk, which is a concentrated form of the most valuable healing, soothing, and antiseptic properties known to medi- i cal science, is sold in sealed boxes at Is. 3d. and 3s. (the 3s. size contains) nearly four times the quantity of the 15. 3d. box) by all chemists, or direct from The Zam-Buk Laboratories, Leeds.

For the Ladies. 1 I THE COMING FASHIONS Designs and Patterns of Beautiful Dresses. By Madame Gwendolen Hope. The extremely low-cut decolletage has been pronounced to be not quite the thing" by those whose judgment ordains whether these things shall be or not; and so a return to well-covered shoulder- blades is evident in all the latest evening and dance model dresses. But there is another fashion that seems to gain in favour day by day, and that is the wear- ing of things that glitter. Bracelets that gleam and shine as their wearers move arc much worn, and jewelled hair- bands in diamonds or their excellent imitations. Combs for the high-dressed hair, too, sparkle and scintillate, and so do shoe-buckles, and even stockings, made of eilver or gold metal thread. A GRACEFUL EVENING GOWN. 1 The beautiful evening frock shown is made of black charmeuse, with an irre- gularly draped skirt and a Persian hem. The pointed bodice is embroidered in silvor, and there are shining steel beads over the shoulder. Tli? width across the hips is achieved by the right ride i draperies. The severely plain style of the chemise frock has given place to the draped models entirely, and the season's outline is entirely graceful. The bodice is severely simple, yet exquisitely smart, and the decolletage is on the modified lines all the newest models carry. I A DAINTY DRESSING-JACKET. I The pretty little garment depicted i made of rose-pink zenana, and is lined with crepe-de-chine of the same shade. The cuffs and collar are also of crepe-de- chine, which is cut in scallop3 ard I buttonholed all round. A handsome dc sign embroidered in pink makes ti 'IF? V suitable and handsome trimming. I lip collar is cut very (leep, and tne sleeves rc-ach only to the elbows. The fastening consists of two lengths of ribbon viiiqjh tie in the front and have long ends. I A COAT FOR A LITTLE GIRL. I The charming little coat delineated is made of velours, clot li." It is cut to fasten on to a yoke having a double-breasted and rather short-waisted effect; and tlis coat is ever so slightly trimmed with fur. The j buttons are hiige, and form all the trimming necessary. The sleeves are of the perfectly plain coat variety, and are finished by a tiny edging of fur. The coat entirely covers the frock underneath, and is a very becoming and useful model, for any I
