But the word H dear" is used with another meaning, and the question is not 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 xaedioines, and even babya milk are all costing moce. It becomes an ifanwtanit matter then to "o that baby gets fun 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 thit milk food is the best; in fact, is the only food for baby if mother mmt feed baby herself. But what sort of mflk fooA? Ordinary cow's milk either fresh, powdered or oendenaed, isn't a natural food for kuman hateac. A baby tanf a calf. A calf can aattty digest the fcaavy fata and owdi in oowe milk but a baby can't. So nilk has to be dilated or weakened. But that doesn't make the indiges- tible matter is the milk any more dignsttble. It stops baby sending it all back, perhaps, by reducing the weight. But the water that has been added oontaina no nourishment. Something more is needed to bring the cow's milk more in line with mother's own mnk. This something is Mose- loys Food.

The Political Front. I an M.P. I THE GERMAN RECOVERY. Heir Scmdt the German Min- ister of Public Economy, speaking this month said the economic situa- tion in Germany had recently im- proved to an "astonishing extent." He quoted statistic!" to show that "in general industry in the shipyards and the production of the mines they had everywhere reached a level ap- proaching ttie pre-war standard." After this I trust we may hear a little less from the Government about helping poor Germany to recover, for the facts are that in a very short time whilst we are quarrelling over in- dustrial disputes, Germany will be underselling us in every market in the world. When this happens there will be an inevitable slump in British wages, unless in the meantime our Smilies, Crumps, and others give British in- dustries a chanc1. to collar-the mar- kets of the world/ •• 'i B R I Tk I CHANCE. At present there is nothing which we can produce which we cartnot sell in any foreign market. It is the chance of our lives to secure fresh outlets for our traders it is the chance of our history to win a perm- anent position of stability for our workers. Everything in the near future and the opportunities of our children depend on securing these world markets now, so can Ave not have a truce in the world of in- dustry and get to business ? Labour is being preached to by agitators and any poison is good enough to stir the workers sgainst the excisting order, yet, let us face facts, the other order is Russia. where the nearest approach to hell oil earth is to be found. FALSE ARGUMENTS. I A great deal of capital has been made out of the profit of Coats in in- flaming po pular feeling, yet does anyone deny that these great profits, nine-tenths of which have come from the sale of cotton thread in foreign ronntrips, nre for the benefit or ii nation? Messrs. Coats and then shareholders probably have paid £ 6,000,000 into the exchequer by taxation and nearly all of this has come out of foreign pockets; whilst the profit on the reel of cotton is no greater than before the war, the whole of the increased cost beinc in material and wages. But would it not have been better if Messrs. Coats had given these obvious explanations before and saved so much ignorant chatter? COAL. So that stupid bill has died a natural death and the vicious pro- posal to limit profits of coal to Is 2d for the moment is dropped. The Na- tional Party motion for the rejection of the Bill seemed to fairly sum up the views of the House, for it de- clined to proceed with a measure which singled out an individual in- dustry for special treatment in the matter of limitation of profits and aimed a blow at the whole basis of private enterprise," and so said all of us. Mr Hartshorn in the debate found cause for complaint in the fact that coal profits during the war, after taking into account increased taxa- tion, were actually greater than be- fore the war, and General Page Croft asked him if he had considered the value of those profits when it is remembered that the pound sterling I is equal to only nine and six-pence ? Mr Hartshorn avoided the ques- tion, but since Labour quite rightly demands that wages should be raised to meet the decreased value of money meet the decreased value of money, can lie show any good reason why ¡ profits should remain of the same value as before? In other words. if it is correct to demand "real" wages, surely it is equally sound to insist upon "real" profits. The poorest in the land to-day are those with small fixed incomes who have no Smillies to threaten revolu- tion on their behalf. The retired clerk, for instance, who had a few hundred pounds In- vested in coal mines before the war yielding, let us say, X80 per annum, is now forced to eke out his existence perhaps with a wife and family on £ 40. These are the real poor and if Labour understood their needs there would be less readiness to drive up the cost of living for these people by increased demands amongst those who are far better off.

Ton-Pentre Police Court. I Monlay, before the Stipendiary! (Mr Lleufer Thomas), Messrs. Tom j John, Thomas Morgan, Dan Daviee, and Thomas Williams. PENYGRAIG TRADESMAN TO I APPEAR. Summoned by Shops Inspector Oti- borne for keeping his shop open after closing time, Sidney John Davies, Penygraig, did not appear, and a warrant was issued for his attend- ance. CWMPARK CRIPPLE AND POLICEMAN. Thomas Harries, Cwmpark, who appeared on crutches minus a leg, was summonel for entering a "public house contrary to the terms of his pro bation. The case was adjourned a fortnight previously so that the defendant should find a surety for his future good behaviour. He now said that he had not found a surety, neither had he tried. The Stipendiary: Why not ? Defendant: I do not want guards hanging round me 1am capable ef "king after myself. Th« policemen stop and stare at me and are after me as if I was on ticket-at-leave. The Stipendiary Have you thought out your own future ? How can we assist you ? Defendant: I am waiting to learn a trade. The Stipendiary: It is no good having a trade if you go on drink- ing. The case was adjourned for four weeks to \see whether defendant would have undertaken a vocation in that time. PENYGRAIG EX-SOLDIER IN TEARS. Robert Jenkins, Penygraig, an I ex-soldier, who was said to have lost his hearing in the war, appeared in custody charged with stealing as bailee £ -3 Is. from Thomas Neadon, a fellow worker at the Ely Colliery. Defendant, who burst into tears during the case >was said to have raised Neadon's wages. The two men WOllvtul Lu^cilicr m Allien charged by a. police cons- table, Jenkins said, "I did take the money but not with the intention of stealing it. I flityiglit that N eadon would draw my money on the fcjlow- ing week." Supt. Edwards said that the de- f pn rl n 111. Yrl-irv plp:irlo*l Vmrl been before the court five times. He was ordered to repay the am- ount as soon as possible and was bound over on probation. GELLI FAMILY SQUABBLE. I Maud Cook, Shady road, Gelli, summoned her brother-in-law, Thos. Cook, for assault. Mr W. G. Spickernell was for the complainant and Mr Idris Price for the defendant. Mrs Cook stated that the defend- ant came to her house and a dispute followed in reference to an insurance policy. His wife pulled witness's hair and the defendant struck her. It was stated that the parties sub- sequently indulged in a free fight on the roadway. The Stipendiary thought the in- terests of all would be best served by the defendant paying the costs of the summons and the other parties being bound over. FATHER AND SON. I John Evans summoned his son, E. George Evans for assault and alleged that the latter called to pay the rent and because his father would ,.zot enter the amount in a new book de- fendant caught him by the throat and took the money back. After Mr Tom John had a private consultation with the parties the case was adjourned for three months. HUSBAND AND WIFE'S I FAMILY. I Catherine Harries, Scott street, Treherbert, summoned her husband, Gomer Harries, for desertion. The former said that there were five children of the marriage which took place fourteen years ago. Her husband left her six months ago when her baby was eleven days old. Defendant, a seafaring man, complained of having been attacked by her Wife's brother, brdther-in- law and lodger. He joined a boat at Cardiff on June 6th leaving his wife on bad terms. He made an allotment of X9 per month to her. She had drawn about £00 in three months al- though she told the guardians she had nothing. During his fourteen year* married life he had been agimat- ing v?th the view of getting her nwn.v from her family, but she wouM n? do it to ?please me or anvbo? else." Mrs Harries: I said that no man would stop me from C'oing to see my mother. Defendant: I am prepared for a I substantial ord er for- the mainten- ance of tlx* children but not for hrr h?'?? come n?re to clear myself nf i ?? ?71 she has re?e1ved in six vr, The Bench made an order of £2 per week. "A HAPPY CHRISTMAS." Alice Cole, Tonypandy, summoned her husbànd: Charles Cole, for per- sistent cruelty. Mr Idris Price was for the wife and Mr T. W. Lewis for the defendant. Mrs Cole said they were married in September, 1917, and for the first twel ve months matters proceeded happily. After that period he, how- ever, gave way to drink and she left him on the 4th December when he ordered her to clear out because ke was not going to keep her any longer. She left him previously in Septem- ber when he chased her with a knife. When in drink he invariably accused her of corresponding with men. By Mr Lewis: Witness's sister lived next door, but it was not a fact that the two sisters went out to- gether in the evenings and that the husband gave way to drink because he could not get any of his wife's society. He accused her also of keep- ing her sister on his money. Asked whether there was not a pos- sibility of reconciliation Mrs Cole said she had nothing against ker husband when he was sober. The defendant: I never told.her to go. The house is open to-dav. The Stipendiary suggested that the defendant should take the pledge and put the case back for a few minutes for the intervention of a probation officer. It was Inter announced that the defendant had pledged himself to abstain from intoxicants and address- ing both, the Stipendiary wished them a happy Christmas and a good Xew Year to follow. A GELLI ASSAULT. Albert Jones (48), Ystrad, sum- moned Morgan Harries (26) for as- sault. There was a cross-summons. Mr Harold Lloyd appeared for Jones and Mr Stanley Jones for the defendant. Complainant stated that whilst re- turning home at ten o'cloek on the 4th December in the company of a man named Williams, the defendant, in a dark lane, sprang at the latter and WilliLixu* run iiwny. Defendant then, it was alleged, struck witness in the mouth knocking him down and when on the floor he kicked com- plainant on the back and .in the jaw. As a result witness's face was swollen. his eye bruised and mouth lacerated, and he had to remain in bed for five dnvs --)-nfl -Prnm ivnrlr for eissrht. days. The man Williams, complainant's companion, said the defendant "let drive" at witness but the latter dodged the blow whereupon defend- ant attacked Jones and witness walk- ed away. He did not run because he could not. (Laughter.) He denied being under the influence of drink. The Stipendiary: You are a man of great philosophic calmness. (Laughter.) Witness explained that he did met ga to the assistance of his companion because he was had. Mrs Barrett corroborated. Defendant's story was that the complainant, first struck him on the nc^e and the teft ear and the mat Williams walked away in disgust. Witness and defen dant then had a fight in which he (defendant) got tha better of matters. Harries was fined £ 5 and the cross- summons was dismissed.
