Football. TREHERBERT 7pts., BARRY 7. This match, a Welsh League, was fought out to aj draw at Treherbert on Saturday. The ground was in a fairly good condition, and the weather was very wintry, snow falling at periods of the game. Treherbert were without Francis at half, and he was greatly missed. Barry took most of their chances, while Treher- bert were more reluctant in making use of their good chances. This is one great fault of the Treherbert team; they do not finish off their work. However, matters were so situated that Barry took the lead, the score now being 7 points to 3. Treherbert had but a short time remaining to play, but, as they always do when it is too late, they set up a most vigorous attack, and brought off some of the most brilliant rushes and bouts of passing. Each effort came within an ace of scoring, and eventually these efforts were rewarded 'by a goal kicked by Duncan. Yet Treherbert were two points behind and there were only a few minutes to score. Abbey Thomas broke through many times, but he was always prevented fom eoring. Eventually Bartry were penalised, and Abe Evans dropped a good penalty goal. Treherbert still carried on the attack until the whistle sounded no side. Thus the game was pulled out of the fire at the last moment. LLWYNYPIA THURSDAYS 3pts., MERTHYR THURSDAYS 3. This match was played on the Mid- Rhonclda Athletic Grounds on Thursday last., before a good attendance of spec- tators. Merthyr kicked off, and Arthur Williams, who fielded the ball, found touch with a brilliant kick in the visitors' 25. From the line-out a scrum was formed, and Merthyr, getting the ball, took play into the Llwynypia half. From a line-out, and just inside the home 25, I. Thomas threw the ball to George Llewellyn, who raced away, beating the opposition easily witlij his speed, and scored a lovely try. amidst great excite- ment. Ivor Morgan made a good attempt at goal. This reverse put more vigour into the play, and Merthyr began press- ing. A crulln was formed close upon tha LlWynypia line, and Johnny Lewis was penalised for picking the ball out of the scrum. Rateman made a poor attempt at goal, much to the relief of the home side. Half-time was called shortly after this, Llwynypia, Thursdays leading by a try. Early in the ftecond Shlalf, Merthyr obtained a try which should not have been allowed, the ball not entering the scrum at all. The scores now: being equal, excitement was intense, and Llwynypia were pressing all the time. E Mithan and J. H. Llewellyn scored tries,, but both were disallowed. Arthur Williams broke through and looked like scoring, but was brought back for some cause which Mr. Boots, the referee, could not explain. Bateman, the Llwynypia man who played for Merthyr, saved con- tinually, and had it not been that he was in such good form the Llwynypia Thursdays would have piled up a heavy score. Dai Meade and Eddie Phillips, the smart Llwynypia half-backs, assisted Merthyr, and it now seems doubtful if Merthyr possesses a, Thursday team, as the last time they visited here they were assisted by five Llwynypia men and four from Pontypridd. For Llwynypia, G. Llewellyn, 1. Thomas and Arthur Williams were the best of the backs, and Mark WilkinS and Mithan the pick of the forwards. Jack Davies, the Llwynypia wing was suffering from a damaged rib, and could not let himself go owing to the hardness of the ground. Llwynypia still have an unbeaten record, and have scored 209 points against 20. YNYSHIR JUNIORS 2gls., TYLORS- TOWN 2. Tylorstown started in a snowstorm and very soon tested Lewis, who cleared smartly, and Jarman receiving, dribbled half the length of the field; but struck the upright with a great shot. Splendid passing between the Tyiorstown forwards ended in Coombes .scoring. The Juniors soon equalised through Jarman, but Tylorstown very soon took the lead, Coombes again scoring, Lewis having no chance to save. After this reverse the Juniors played more together, and but for the splendid play of Greenaway, the visitors' goalie, must have piled up a good score. For Tylorstown, Greenaway and Drew were the pick, and Jarman, Lloyd, and Walters played well for the Juniors. PENTRE UNITED 6pts., LLWYNYPIA RESERVES 0. Pentre United anticipated a hard and keen game on Saturday, their visitors being Llwynypia Reserves, who are so near to the top of the Rhondda League. The game was a good one, the ground being in capital condition and the climatic conditions very suitable. The final score of two tries to nil was well deserved and just about represents the difference between the teams. Of the homesters the halves played a good game, and they were well supported by their backs. On present form Pentre should be able to capture a few more League points.
Shots for Goal. The Treherbert Athletic team must be getting used to it. They were defeated again on Saturday at Abercynon in spite of their war-cry. They always manage to get beaten, but always by a small margin, as on Saturday, the score being only one try to nil. This score came at the last minute of the game, and that in a very "soft" manner. There was something evidently wrong with the team, and they were, as they express it, "simply up the pole." We consider that they have retained this elevated position for some time now. When are they coming down? We hope they'll come speedily, regardless of the bumps." Johnny Thomas (Abbey) was quite in his old form against Barry on Saturday. His breaking through and fine spurts nearly gave Treherbert victory on more than one occasion during the last few minutes of the game. We should like. to see him retain this fine form for the remainder of the season, at any rate. --+-- Doubtless all Soccer footballers of South Wales will be delighted to learn of the. convalescence of Jack Ingram, the Mardy goalie. It will1 be remembered that Ingram sus- tained very serious injuries some time ago while following his employment, and was thus rendered hors-de-coinbat for this season. --+-- Unquestionably Mardy was hit very hard by thus losing so capable a. goal- keeper, and would be pleased to obtain his services yet a while between the posts. Though this is very unlikely this season, Ingram, in all probability, will be ahle t) safeguard the Mardy goal during the next season. Portli Reserves met Trehafod on Satur- day in a League encounter and defeated them by 2 goals to 1. Young Tom Evana did not long embrace the Trehafod senior team. He has now obtained his transfer back to Iiis first love, the Forth Reserves. Evans plays as well as ever, and is always a veritable danger before the goal mouth. Woods, of the Reserves, is a sturdy young full-back, and should develop into a first-class player. The Reserves are going it very strong for the Rhondda League medals, and are sure of wresting them from their rivals this season. Trehafod Juniors played Williamstown on Saturday at home, and defeated them very decisively, securing 3 goals to nil. It is 'somewhat strangfei that Williams- town can always give the Juniors a good match at Trehafod, though they seldom make much of a show at home. -+-- Ginger, their left wing, is an exceed- ingly dangerous player when in the vicinity of the goal. The Juniors were apparently well aware of this, for they watched and very successfully upset his strategy. Whatever may be said of Williajmstown's football skill, rough play is conspicuous among them by its absence, a fact not always true of the Juniors. --+-- Ted Reynolds, the right half for Tre- hafod, is fairly skilful in his position and shows good promise. --+-- Treorchy Old Boys, the team who has long thirsted for the blood of Cilfynydd Ex-Schoolboys (League champions)," quenched their thirst on Saturday by put- ting in an easy win. -+-- R. J. Duckworth1, Dumfries Street, Treorchy, has made a name for himself in the football focus" within recent years. Bob has been secretary and played in every position for Pentre United Soccer and Rugby teams, and is now the hero in the Treorchy Old boys "bunch." --+-- Will Jones, known in football quarters as "Will Lyon/' has a promising future. He plays at full-back for the Old Boys, Treorchy, and we learn that not a match has passed during this season without his adding the extras. -+-- Treorchy premiers were defeated at the hands of Penygraig on Saturday. Some- thing was out of order undoubtedly. Dai Elbow was hors de combat" perhaps.
Hockey. Pentre Hockey Team visited Cardiff on Saturday, and succeeded in defeating the Cardiff Intermediate Old Boys by the odd goal in nine. The venue was the famous Harlequins' ground at the end of Newport Road, now owned by the Cardiff Intermediate School. The scoring against Pentre would have been lass if there had been a full strong team. Considering that the visitors only played ten men during the whole of the game, it was very creditable to attain success at all.

Tylorstown Vocalist Entertained. Welcome Home to Mr. Godfrey Price. On Friday last, at the Tylors Hotel, a complimentary banquet was given Mr. Godfrey Price, the well-known local basso, on his return home from the United States after a five months' tour with the Moun- tain Ash Male Voice Party. Mr. T. H. Holder, M.E., presided, supported by Dr. T. H. Morris, 0.0., Councillor D. Smith, Messrs. Stephen Davies, M.E., W. Emerson, M.E., James Lewis, M.E., and Robert Jones, M.E. In his address, the Chairman said that he felt it a great pleasure to preside over the gathering. A few months ago they had met to give a hearty send-off to Mr. Godfrey Price, and he was once again delighted to welcome him home. The Press had sung the praise of Mr. Price in America and at home, and had long ago announced him as making the hit of the party (cheers). The toast to Mr. Price was made in a jocular manner by Mr. W. D&vies, who said that during his journey Mr. -Price- had once or twice been offered the hand of the fair sex. Not only did he win the praise and admiration of the sterner sex, but he also won the hearts of fair ladies (cheers). But, as they all knew, there was a, barrier which could never be broken at home, and Mr. Price feilt and knew he had a duty to perform, and that in the old country h. had loved ones who were waiting for his return (cheers). Dr. T. H. Morns, C.C., said that he would feel exceedingly sorry if he had not been present to show his true appre- ciation of the work done by Mr. Price in the States. He had travelled very much the same journey as their guest, although. Mr. Price had spent a longer time; and he was positive that he (Mr. Price) could go on for a year relating the journey and the beautiful scenes that came his way. He had during his practice; at Tylorstown attended Mr. Price through two. or three very severe illnesses, and he was positive that when Mr. Price crossed the Atlantic he would return in good health, and here he had arrived quite well and healthy (cheers)). Like himself, Mr. Price wanted," to come home. Friends at home are-, better than friends over there." He was always pleased to see a Welshman making a name for himself (hear, hear). One could never meet a better heart than a Welshman, and wherever a person went he always ran across one. At the present day, Welshmen commanded some of the greatest positions in the world, and wher- ever a Welshman had a, footing and wed his head, he was sure to get on (cheers). Mr. Price, in responding, said that he was sorry that he could not express him- self in the way he would like to do, but he could assure them that his one chief aim during the tour was to uphold the name of Tylorstown in musical circles (cheers). He had met during the tour and had made many friends, but none were so near and dear to him as Tylors- town folk, whom he had known from childhood (hear, hear). He would still go on knowing that there were miny bearts, beating for him and always wishing him well (cheers). Councillor D. Smith, in an eloquent speech, said that he felt it a pleasure to he present. He had made a great effort to come, and he could say, on behalf of Tylorstown, that they accorded Mr. Price a hearty reception after his visit to the States (cheers). He had the honour of presiding ovetr the last concert the party had previous to their tour, and that con- cert proved a decided success, and it was a credit to WaleS.. not only in singing, but also their general conduct (applause). He was pleased to see Mr. Price back again, and he would be delighted to see more young men from the place throwing themselves enthusiastically into the work of making a name for themselves (hear, hearl). He wished Mr. Price every success in the future and the best of health (cheers). The toast to the hostess was given by Mr. Stephen Davies, M.E., who spoke of the excellent manner with which Mrs. Davies had supplied the "inner man." Addresses were also. given by Mr. D. C Evans and Mr. W. Edwards. Solos were contributed by Messrs. W. E. Emerson, D. Hopkins, Harry Thomaa, E J. Rees, Arthur Jones and Godfrey Price.
ULCERS ON TONGUE AND THROAT. OWED HIS LIFE TO DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS. The remarkable statement published be- low of Mr. Fred Sharpe, of Smithy Hill, Bradwell, near Sheffield, again illustrates the value of Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills as a searching cleansing remedy. For years. Mr. Sharpe suffered frcm ulcers on the. tongue and in the throat which would not yield to ordinary treatment, but he states that Dr. Morse's. Indian Root Pills, -positively and per- manently cured him, and tells of the bene- fit he derived from their use For eleven years," writes, Mr.Sharpe,"I suffered from Ulcerated Tongue and Throat,, and during that time was in the hospital four times, and all the conceivable means, were tried, to even give me some relief,, but no relief could I get. I came to the conclusion that I was. incurable and must suffer all my life. Some little time ago I was induced to try Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and I can now say with all sincerity that I owe my life to them. They are an invaluable remedy and cannot be- too highly praised, and I can't speak enough of them. I am very pleased to be able to add my contribution to your other testimonials, and you may use this letter as you like." Ulcers, Pimples, Boils, and Blotches are caused by impure blood. Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills get at the cause. They drive the impurities out through the regular channels, aiding in the digestion and assimilation of. the food and toning the entire system.
