I IN THE GUARDS. Mr. Churchill has refused to make Mr. Stephen Graham's al legations in "A Private in the Guards an issue for Parliamentary debate, but this notwithstanding, discussion upon the revelations will not speedily cease. Mr. Graham's story leaves a distressing impression upon the mind of the readsr, al- though men who have been through the mill, whilst acknowledging that the discipline of the Guards was ex- cessively severe, declare that the system had result- thnt appeared 10 justify it. Whenever there was a tight comer to fill, a great hazard to run, or a desperate hope to at- tempt, it was always the Brigade Guards that was called on. • General Francis Lloyd whilst ad- mitting that, the training at Cater- ham is very strenuous and kept up to the highest pitch that is possible, denies that there is any bullying, any winking at peculation, or any unnecessary harshness. The inevi- table retort, to the General will be that the officers could have seen little of what was happening on the parade ground. Dealing with Mr Churchill's answer to a question in the House, the Manchester Guardian" said that some poli- ticians evidently prefer to live under sentimental illusions about the Guards rather than to know the facts. No Experienced private soldier, the journal declares, ne-eds to be told that the system is marked by extraordinary technical efficiency, and is marred by much bullying, some corruption, and a. good deal of a foulness of speech with which the foulest comer of a public school or a university would compete in va-in." General Lloyd says the system is "stiff"; the allegations of Mr. Stephen Graham and the letters of ex- soldiers would show that it is very stiff! All the same it hafc its defenders. The "Morning Post," which makes a fetish of frankness, said yester- day that the task laid upon the non- cómmissiÓtléd dfficers of thë Guards a& 6f othAr regiments, was to pnak e soldiers in the. shortest poosbJe time. Very likely the recruits found the process disagreftble. Some men are naturally more affec- ted than others by strict and in- tense training, but there are few who cannot swallow their medi- cine without tears. Mora fcbao a I few! Alr. J. Byren, an ex-Insh Guardsman, writing from Fulham 'I states that his experience of over five years was "too awful ■ for words. I have seen men kicked and beaten almost to death, both at Caterham and with their unjt. On I one occasion I saw two sergeant- i majors bring a young lad to the bath, and strip and beat him in the I bath until he fainted. His life was inade a hell, and finally he de- serted. Worse still goes on in the Guards' detention barracks and prisons." That tale, if true, is too deep for toal,q ,t Sir John Rees asks if the system which produces the best infantry in the world is not best left alone, and the "Morning Post" thinks. that the results of the discipline of which these complaints are made f are a. sufficient answer. But some I kinds of disciplinary- triumphs are too dearly purchased.
L.M.W.R. AND SWANSEA We commend the example of the Llandilo-Talybont Council to the SW1.Dea Council, and to other authorities affected by the poor facilities the London and North "W estern Railway Co. offer the town and district. Gorseinon has at last I rjsen in revolt, pp(p the Council is to make representations "in the proper quarters. We. wish the complainants erery success. At the same tune we would like to see Swansea taking vigorous action be- fore another summer comes around. It- is absurd that such popular- re- sorts as the Wells, fifty and sixtv miles from Swansea should be a three to four hours' railway journey. I It is scandalous that the run to Pontardulais, scarcely twelve miles, should take, about three-quarters of an hoar by many of the services. As the Llandilo-Talybont Council points out, the distribution of the trains is inconvenient to the public; in fact the L.N.W.P. Co. appear not to have realised that great townships have grown up at Pont- ardulais and Gorseinon that are en- titled to more considerate treatment than villages like Cvngherdy and Llanwrda. As a matter of fact they seem to get less
THE NEW EPIDEMIC. I A year ago we were in the grip of influenza. Now it is catarrh. It. is not anything like so serious as the disease that swept the country in 1018, but it will be unwise to treat it lightly. It generally begins with a, relaxed throat, the "soreness" being most noticeable on waking ;11 the morning. This is followed by a running from t.he nose or eves or both, which has a tendency to recur in a day or two after it seems to be completely cured. It is seldom there is any cough. The temper- ature is little, if at all, alcove the normal, and there is neither sleep- lessne-ss nor loss of appetite, still less that intolerable feeling of physical and mental discomfort, not t) be evaded even by staying in bed, which was an unfailing symp- tom of the so-called Spanish in- tluenza in its first stage. But there can be no doubt that an obstinate case of this cold has a tendency, if j "neglected, to develop into pneu- monia. A learned correspondent writing to a contemporary says that fresh air is, of course, the best, cer- tainly the cheapest, antidote to this and many other ills of the flesh. In- oculation against colds, though more and more practised, is of doubtful efficacy. In many cases' the inoculated person is as mucti subject to colds as ever he was. W hen you have caught the prevail- ing cold, the. best plan is to take a brief holiday and (Spend the first day of it in bed. Going to bed, as the De Goncourt brothers knew, :6 a good remedy net only for all minor physical complaints but also for the hump in any s hape ov fon-n. Failing t.hat, warm dressing and indulgence in all the fresh air you can get, are the best allevia- tions.
I SELFISH MOTORISTS. I I Llanelly Councillor's I Complaint. I The Ministry of Transport liare written to the Llanelly Rural District Council etatiny that complaints have been re- ceived from mptor, omnibus, and chara- banc owners of the danger arising from from overhanging the roads in certain parts of the district. They request the Council to remove the obstructions for the safety of passengers. The letter was mentioned at Thursday's meeting Off the council when the surveyor (Mr. Jenkins) reported that he had served notices to have the ob?trucf'on removed. COUNCILLOR'S COMPLAINT. Mx. David Evans (Trimsaram said it was all vf-rr weJl for the owners of these motor vehicles to look after their own interests. A motor car on the country road, was not turned an inch to avoid pedestrians, who had often to jump into the ditch to pave thsmselve*. One feels at times," added Mr. Evan?, amidst laughter, that he ought to c-airy a 6hot gun and burst their tjrreg. 4
