THE AMPLE PROPORTION. Quite frequently one may cut right through the middle of a loaf of currant bread and dis- cover only two or three solitary looking currants. In puddings and in currant bread there is one famous rule-the rule of the" generous sprinkling." Every clever housewife, anxious to foster in her family the love for this remarkably nutritious and appetising fruit, learns to govern her hand so as never to fal I short of the ample proportion.

FOOTBALL. WELSH AMATEUR CUP.-FINAL. BUCKLEY ENGINEERS v ABERYSTWYTH This match was played on the North End ground, Newtown, on Saturday, in glorious weather. Between seven and eight hundred made the journey from Aberystwyth. Aber- ystwyth won the toss, and before they had played five minutes they had scored two goals through Austin Jenkins and Ernie Peake. After about twenty-five minutes' play James, the Aberystwyth centre-half, was injured, and had to retire, which greatly handicapped them. After the interval Buckley scored, and a little later they equalised. The whistle blew as Buckley added the third, too late. The following was the Aberystwyth team Goal, R Crowther; fullbacks, 0 Green and Dickinson; half-backs, J W Edwards, James and T Rees (capt.} forwards, Low Rees, D Hughes, Austin Jenkins, E Peakc; and Bob Peake.

Electric Light. Mr Perkins wrote offering to place three more arc lamps in any part of the town. Referred to committee. Mr William Thomas said that be had taken upon himself to have all the lamps on the new promenade near tho castle lit for this week, and he suggested whether it would not be as well to have them lit for the whole of the month. The suggestion was agreed to. An Apartment Bureau. Mr Galloway wrote offering to reply to letters enquiring for apartments, &c. Referred. Some matters were referred to the Finance Committee. The Smithfield Gardens. The Borough Accountant referred to the Smithfield gardens, whose tenants are under notice to quit, the land being required by the G.W.R. It was stated that the Company will prob- ably not require the land this summer, and the Finance Committee were authorised to deal with the matter., FINANCE COMMITTEE. Mr C. M. Williams read the report. Labour sheets and bills to the amount of JE333 4s. 8d. were ordered to be paid. The tender of Mr J. S. Peters for binding was accepted. Fresh terms were agreed to with respect to the renewal of the lease of No. 22, Chalybeate street. The Committee recommended that the words "and raised another storey be eliminated from the conditions offered to the Rev T. A. Penry for the renewal of the lease of No 54 Portland street, the same having been inserted in error. Mr Penry attended, and made a statement with regard to the back premises. On the motion of Mr C. M. Williams, it was decided that Mr Penry should write to the Council, and that the Surveyor should report on the matter. PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. The report was read by Mr W. Thomas. The committee made the following recom- mendations :— I (a) That the following plans be approved, Tiz.. tbose of- 1. A billiard room over the stable of the Commercial Hotel. 2. Alterations to the premises of Mr R. G. Bennett, at the corner of Brewer street and Cainbrian street. 3. Alterations to Nos. 17 and 19 Prospect street. (b) Yatrad Meurig Quarry.—That permission be given to the Great Western Railway Com- pany to quarry and raise stones from certain parts of this quarry, and under the supervision of the Borough Surveyor, on payment of a royalty of 9d. per ton on the stone raised. (c) That the Cambrian Railway Company be informed that the Council cannot undertake to supply the Company with any water other than such quantity as may be required for domestic purposes. (d) That the Borough Surveyorberequested to present a report and estimate of the cost of making a footpath from Greenfield street to Mill street. (e) That Mr Vincent Lewis be required to remove the shed held by him on the Castle grounds forthwith. The report of the Sanitary Committee was read. Mr W Thomas, in moving the adoption of (a), said that in committee he had not agreed with the recommendation, but he was willing to take his defeat. Mr Samuel said that lie had disapproved of No 1. Mr Williams asked the Surveyor if there was nufticient air space according to the requirements of the byelaws for these premises ? Objection had been raised in regard to Mr Edward Evans' property in Corporation street. Mr Gibson said that; with corner houses it is difficult to have the air space as required by the byelaws. The Surveyor said there is a narrow space at the rear and a space in Union street, but none whatever in the position required by the bye- laws. The Town Clerk said that a grant which was & breach of the byelaws is illegal. Mr C M Williams was proceeding to explain the position, when Mr Gibson rose to a point of order, Mr Williams having spoken two or three times. Mr Williams said that he had only explained. Mr Davies said that Mr Samuel had not voted in Mr Edward Evans' case. Mr Samuel said that he had been consistent in supporting the byelaws all along. When plans were first submitted for buildings at the back of the Commercial Hotel it was a question whether they would allow so much building. Now it is proposed to build over the small remaining space. Capt. Doughton said there will be air space if the front wall is lowered to about four feet. They should give and take. Mr Hopkins said that thi i house has more yard than hundreds of corner houses. The present plans are in accordance with the sug- gestions of the Council. Mr W Thomas said that he was one of three who at the committee voted against this recommendation. This is not strictly speaking a corner house. The addition is no doubt much needed. Five voted for the recommendation and four against. Th: Surveyor estimated the cost of repairing the damage to the Victoria terrace sea wall, &c.. at JE210. It was agreed that the work be proceeded with. THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. Mr Samuel proposed the adoption of the report, which was agreed to. A vote of thanks was accorded to Mr Sparrow for a copy of Harmsworth's Encyclopedia, to Mr Evan Lewis, Trinity road, and Miss Thomas, 29 North parade. Mr Samuel proposed that proceedings be taken against any person found taking I-apers or magazines, or mutilating them, and that was agreed to. Mr Gibson moved—" That in future, when any resolution is passed, involving action, that the person who is to take the action should be named, so as to avoid the evil of resolutions being passed which are never acted upon." Mr Hopkins seconded. Mr Samuel said that under the present system if an official does not carry out a resolution attention can be callpd to the omission, and ke did not see the necessity for the resolution. The proposal was agreed to. The Corporate Seal. The Mayor was authorised to affix cor- porate seal to I the dwellin boyaleo Nos 3 and 4 Alfred place to Mr J H Edwards, and to a lease of No 30 Prospect street to Airs E Michael Evans. Markets. Mr Davies referred to the proposed arrangement far leasing the new market hall in order to try to prevent street hawking. The Town Clerk said that until they pro- vided a proper market they could not stop street hawking. The Band. On Mr DaTies' suggestion it was decided that the committee be authorised to engage the band after this week if they think fit. The National Eisteddfod. The Town Clerk said that he had received no communication from the promoters of the recent public meeting. Mr Samuel said that a committee had been appointed.

THE USE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. The following has been published in The Lancet We have received the following document for publication in "The Lancet." As an expression of scientific opinion it deserves to be considered carefully by medical practi- tioners. The signatories are well-known members of the profession, and the importance of the questions involved, alike from the medical and the social poinL uf view, can hardly be overestimated. In view of the statements frequently made as to present medical opinion regarding alcohol and alcoholic beverages, we the under- signed, think it desirable to issue the following I short statement on the subject-a statement which we believe represents the opinions of the leading clinical teachers as well as of the great majority of medical practitioners. Recognising that, in prescribing alcohol, the requirements of the individual must be the governing rule, we are convinced of the correctness of the opinion so long and generally held, that in disease alcohol is a rapid and trustworthy restorative. In many cases it may be truly described as life-preserving, owing to its power to sustain cardiac and nervous energy, while protecting the wasting tissues. As an article of diet we hold that the universal belief of civilised mankind that the moderate use of alcoholic beverages is for, adults, usually beneficial, is amply justified. We deplore the evils arising from the abuse of alcoholic beverages. But it is obvious that there is nothing, however beneficial, which does not by excess become injurious.

I SUFFERING CHILDREN. It is a dreadful thing to see children suffer- ing still more dreadful when we do not know how to help them. Many children are affiioted with eczema, shingles and other irritating and itching skin diseases, and it is indeed good news to know that there exists a safe and "thorough" cure for their troubles. Here is an example which, for their children's sake, mothers will do well to fultow :— Nearly six years after giving a testimonial for Doan's Ointment, Mrs S E Cooper, 36 Carter street, Goole, saidDoan's is a grand ointment for skin trouble. My little boy has kept quite free from skin irritation ever since we used the ointment." The following is the testimonial in which Mrs Cooper describes her son's case: —"I tried several kinds of ointment to give my little boy relief from the skin trouble he suffered with for many months, but none of them did any good. Doan's Ointment, how- ever, has quite cured him it quickly eased the pain, and soon drove the trouble away. The poor little fellow was very bad before we started with Doan's Ointment. H I can honestly recommend this splendid ointment, for I have proved its value. (Signed) S Ethel Cooper." Why not obtain a sample and try Doan's Ointment ? We will send you a free sample if you will send us (see below) your name, address, and a penny stamp to cover cost of postage. Doan's Ointment is two shillings and nine pence a pot (six pots for thirteen shillings and ninepence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, on receipt of price, direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells-street, Oxford- street, London, W. Be sure you get exactly the same kind of ointment—DOAN'S—that Mrs Cooper used.
