V MOTHER answers U of course," iVi with a strong inflexion of surprise that the question should even be mentioned. Eut the word U dea.r" is used with another meaning, and the question is net ours, but that of several writers in the Press who have been pointing out how much more it costs to keep a baby to-day. Baby's clothes, baby's pram, baby's medicines, and even baby's milk are .all costing more It becomes an imporba-nt matter then to see that baby gets full value for the money spent, especially in the matter of food. There's a great deal can be saved on that alone. Take milk, for instance. It is a fact that milk food is the best; in fact, is the only food for baby if mother can't feed baby .herself. But what sort of milk food? Ordinary cow's milk either fresh, powdered or condensed, isn't a natural food for human babies. A baby isn't a calf. A calf can easily digest the heavy fats and' cuirds in oows milk, but a baby can't. So milk has to be diluted or weakened. But that doesn't make the indiges- tible matter in the milk any more digestible. It stops baby sending it all back, perhaps, by reducing the weight. But the water that has been added contains no nourishment. Something more w needed to bring the cow's milk more in line with mother's own milk. This something is Mose- leys Food. It is not only very nourish- ing itself and supplies ingredients especially helpful for baby's bones and teeth, it modih-M the cow's milk and makes it lie lighter on baby's stomach. J When you Urse Mos-eleys Food you make better food for baby with less milk. And however dear baby is to you in affection you can have no objections to him being less dear" to ke.ep. And Moseleys Food saves doctor's bills and other troubles, for over and over again it has been the salvation of weakly babies, soothing and sustain- ing them when they were actually un- able to keep down the weakest milk and water. Don't hesitate, but be on the safe side. Start baby right with Moseleys Food. And if baby isn't all you think it should be, put it straight away ea Humanises Cow's Milk for Baby. Sold by all good Chemists in 9d., 1/4 & 31- Tins. A handsomely printed, illustrated Baby Book entitled "Moseleys Mothers' Help," containing valuable hints for Mothers, descriptions of Baby Ailments, will be sent post free to any address on receipt of postcard addressed to Nurse Rhos, Moseley Food Co., Westhoughton.

.?- -?- Porth Police Court. Thursday, December 11th, before the Stipendiary (Mr LleuferThomas), Dr. jNaunton Davies, Messrs. D. Enoch, Stephen Evans and J. Hughes. I ALLEGATIONS OF FANCY MEN." ¡ Annie Edwards, Trealaw, sum- moned her husband, David J ohn Ed- wards, Treorchy, for persistent cru- elty. Mr Idris Price was for the wife and Mr AAT. G. Spickernell for the defendant. Mrs Edwards said she married her husband in October, 1913, and there was one child. Living together in Treasure st., Treorchy, they parted on the 9th October last because he ordered her out, assisting her with her box and remarking it she would not go lie would starve her and worry her to the grave. She complained of his ill-treatment of her. A week before she left him he waited for her at the door with a knife in his hand. Her husband was in the army for four years and was demobilised last February. Snee his return home his conduct had been telTible; tie would not woik being too xazy ana did nothing but drink and play cards. There had been an allegation that she had been seen arm-in-arm with his cousin, Arthur Reynolds, but this she denied. However, on the 16th November she left her father's house and her husband fol- lowed and threatened her, and on J meeting Reynolds near the Tony- pandy Empire she asked the latter to accompany her for protection. She denied walking with Reynolds except on that one occasion. Questioned by Mr Spickernell, she admitted that that was not the only time she had been in the company of Reynolds. She remembered accom- panying her husband, mother and child as far as Swansea when they went to Pembrokeshire. She em- barked on the return journey from Swansea at nine p.m. and met Rey- nolds who had been to see a football match. Reynolds came into a rail- way compartment alone with her. She wore a veil. Mrs Jonathan and her husband who lived in the same i house as witness also entered the compartment and Mrs. Jonathan spoke to Mrs Edwards about the latter's "fancy men." Witness left the tratin at Blaenrhondda (leaving the other occupants in the train, and proceeded to her home at Treorchy by tramcar. She did not see Rey- nolds again that night. She denied introducing another man named Jack Lewis as "My Jack." Mr Spickernell: Is not the whole trouble due to the fact that you want Arthur Reynolds ? Witness No I do not. She denied that Mr Jonathan had to get up at twelve and one o'clock at night to let her into the house. Susannah Vauglian, who lived next door to the parties, deposed to hearing the defendant "kicking up a row." She had also seen mar ks on Mrs Edwards. On one occasion they kept witness and her husband awake all night. She considered Mrs Ed- wards a respectable woman with whom she had not seen anything wrong. Arthur Reynolds, Trevor street, Treorchy, referring to the Tony- pandy incident, said he was in a queue waiting to enter the Tony- pandy Empire when Mrs Edwards asked him to accompany her. He went with her towards Penygraig when the husband approached them and threatened Af i-s Edwards. Wit- ness was not arm-in-arm with the complainant. Alluding to the other occasion he said he travelled with Mrs Edwards from Neath in a com- paitment in which there were other people. He did not see complainant after she left the train at Blaen- rhondda. By Mr Spickrnell: He remem- bered meeting Mrs Edwards in Cem- etery road, Treorchy, and "passed the time of day" with her. Mr Spickernell: And you passed the time of night. Witness said lie did not emerge from an archway in Cemetery road with her one night. He later stated that she had a lot to forgive her hus- band for his cond uct towards her. Mr Spickernell: Why do you champion her cause? Defendant then entered the wit- ness-box and said that on the nigh I his wife left him she said he was going because she wanted a free life and desired another man. He denied that he had knocked her about. If she had any bruises on her arm they might have been caused by him in self-defence. He saw her and Rey- nolds walking1 arm-in-arm at* Tony- pandy and approaching them witness said to Reynolds, "What business have you to walk about with my wife?" Reynolds replied, What business is that of yours? She is a free woman now." Reynolds later threatened to throw witness over o bridge into the river below. Mrs Jonathan said that whilst with Mrs Edwards at the Grand Theatre, Pentre, the latter got Jack .-?- r Lewis to sit by her. Witness thought that she was a "thoroughly bad woman." She told witness that she (complainant) had been over the golf links with Jack Lewis. Complain- ant informed witness that the latter would have to leave the house be- cause she had seen too much, and had told her mother-in-law. Jeffrey Thomas spoke to seeing complainant and Reynolds leave an archway in Cemetery road, Treorchy between ten and 10.30 at night. The Stipendiary found that cruelty had been proved but he was not sat- isfied that the defendant was justified in resorting to it. There was not sufficient evidence of misconduct on the part of the wife. An order of 25s. per week was made. I PENYGRAIG HUSBAND AND WIFE. Aiarguiet .Uln.

They form- erly xived at Ab^rtridwr. Her hus- band was jealous of her and unjustly accused her of going with other men. He gave her his money—about X6 per week. By Mr Price: Unpleasantness started about last May after lie had been for a holiday in North Wales. The trouble was a bout a man named Lloyd. She returned home one night about eleven o'clock but was not under the influence of drink. She had been to Caerphilly. Mr Price: AIIliere there? Witness: At Caerphilly. Mr Price Can you tell me where ? Witness made no answer. She con- tinued in reply to Mr Price that on this night she went out at 8.30 leav- ing the children in the care of a neighbour. Since that time she had been told that she had been seen with Lloyd. She remembered when her little son. informed his father that he had seen his mother with Lloyd in a plantation but she as- serted that the meeting was acci- dental. She admitted that Lloyd had given her 9,3 since she left her hus- band. The Stipendiary commented upon the fact that as Lloyd lived at A ber- tridwr and Mrs Williams at Peny- graig, the parties might now con- sider the question of resuming coha- bitation. Mrs Williams replied that she would not return to her husband. The Stipendiary: You had better take three weeks to consider it. Mrs AY illiams: I will never live with him again. The Stipendiary: You do not want an adjournment ? AYritness: No, sir. Th", Stipendiary: Very well; case dismissed. I ENOUGH MONEY TO BUILD A' COTTAGE. In the case in which AValter Rogers, Mardy, was fined 30s. for using bad language proved by P. C. Sullivan, Inspector Rees Davies said the defendant had paid enough money in fines to build a cottage. I THE DRINK. I For drunkenness Guiseppe Cam- ora, Mardy, was fined X2 and Wm. John Morgan, Treliafod, 10s. FERN DALE SHOP OFFENCE. I Mary Evans, Ferndale, summoned for keeping her shop open after clos- ing time was discharged pn pay- ment of costs. Defendant said the goods (starch) had been ordered before closing time. Shops Inspector Osborne proved the case. ADVICE TO FOOTBALLER. I Dd. John Davies, Mardy, was summoned for a breach of probation by becoming inebriated. It was stated that the defendant was a footballer whereupon the Sti- pendiary said, "If you want to go in for athletics you must be abstemious. It is no use attempting to go in for football and give way to drink." Case adjourned and probation con- tinued.

Odds and Ends- Mr J. Brierley, traffic- superin- tendent, Rhondda Tramway Com- pany, has been appointed to a simi- lar position under the Southampton Corporation. Since his advent to the Rhondda from Oldham, nearly two years ago, Mr Brierley has gained much popularity among the tram- way employees and the general com- munity. It is estimated that nearly G,000 houses have changed hands in the Rhondda since 1914. A married couple in the Upper Rhondda have a novel way of paying for a dog licence. They each put a penny in the Sunday School Penny Bank every week, and it is out of this the 7s. Gd. comes when the time arrives for the renewal of the licence. There was an inspiring scene at Bethania li-elsh C.M. Chapel, Llwynypia, the other Sunday morn- ing, w hen eleven young women marched forward in a body declaring their desire of being admitted into membership. The pastor (Rev. John Morgan) will, in January, enter upon the 21st year of his pastorate, a period during which the church has flourished considerably. Ladyr N icholas, The Garth, Tre- alaw, commandant of the Clydach Vale detachinent of V.A.D. nurses, has been presented by the quarter- master (Mrs Powell, Sennybridge), on behalf of the detachment, with a pair of silver bureau candlesticks, suitably inscribed, as a mark of es- teem. The nurses at the close of the function were entertained at the Garth by Lady Nicholas. During the war period the V.A.D.'s ren- dered excellent service at the Llwyn- ypia auxiliary military hospital. The MId-Rhondda Male Voice Party has been resusciated under the comluc'orsliip of Mr Rees Jones. The choir intends entering the com- petition at next year's National Eis- teddfod at Barry. The members of Bethany Baptist Chapel, Treherbert, have sent a reso- lution to the Prime Minister viewing with alarm and indignation the re- peated appeals which are being made in the name of charity on behalf of the inmates of St. Dunstan's Home for the blind, and expressing aston- ishment that the Government should exhibit such heaiKless conduct in thp treatment meted out to those gal- lant lads; and, further, desiring the immediate introduction of legislation to bring relief to blinded heroes. The question of the construction of a public park was discussed at a public meeting at Porth on Tuesday evening, when it was reported that Councillor T. Griffiths, J. P tad approached the Tynycymmer Estate and had been offered a suitable site -of 10 acres at Caemawr Field. A committee was appointed to ascer- tain the sale price of the site and to submit its report to a future public meeting. A social gathering was held OIL Saturday evening at Gellidaweie Schools, Tonyrefail, in connection' with the Gwalia Male A oice Party (conductor, Mr AArm. Middleton). The musical programme was provid- ed by members of the party, which has scored five successes during the last two months. The organiser of party is Mr D. J. Morris (Dewi o'r Ton), and much of its successes is due to him. Mr D. G. Williams, one of the oldest deacons at Ebenezer Welsh Congregational Church, Tonypandy, was on Tuesday evening presented by the members with a walking- stick and wallet of Treasury notes. on his departure for Chester. iAIr Williaiiis, who is 83 years of age^ has been on the church diaconate fair 13 years.
