ABOUT PERSONAL PRAISE. There are very few people who are justified in giving personal praise or personal blame. A public man's acts may be criticised favour- ably or unfavourably, but that is altogether a different thing, it seems to me, from praising or blaming the person. If a mem- ker of Parliament says that he is in favour of peace and votes for war, or is in favour of the enfranchisement of women and votes against their enfranchisement, then he lays himself open to criticism, but I do not see who is justified in giving personal blame to that member of Parliament. The member is responsible to his constituents who would be justified in voting a-gainst him as a re- presentative, but where does the right to administer personal oensure come in? A man acts in a certain way that seems good to him. Somebody else does not ap- prove of his acts. Has the person who dis- approves a right to blame the man—to cen- sure him ? I think not. He is not his fellow-creature's judge. On the other hand, if a man's acts and behaviour are approved of by some outsider, has that outsider a right to bestow com- mendation and praise? I think not. Who is he, and what right has he to bestow praise? Where did he get his authority to be the judfo of his fellow creature? All unwarranted assumption of superiority it eeems to me is offensive and unjustifiable. There are, of course, cases in which friend- ship, or relationship, or exceptional and recognised authority,, or exalted reputation, may occasionally justify personal praise, but modest men will always be slow to risk the impertinence of bestowing praise. The ehild may be praised by parents. The ser- vant may be praised by employers. The pupil may be praised by teachers. The in- ferior may be praised by the superior, but to whom am I superior that I should award praise or blame? And who is my superior that he can justly come to me with praise or blame? I know people who are eager for praise who would savagely resent the superiority of the giver which praise implies. There are delicat.3 ways of implying praise, commendation, appreciation, sympathy, but it is only the coarse-minded who presume to be lavish of praise. Suppose a person went to the King and praised him for being a rather good sort of sovereign! Suppose a young man went to his employer and told him that he was not a bad sort of fellow. Suppose a boy in school praised the head teacher's way of reading the lessons. It Is easily seen that praise from certain persons to certain other persons may be ludicrous, impertinent, insulting, insane. I have found it more difficult to give praise wisely than to give anything else in the world that I had the power to give at all. Who am I that I should give praise or blame? Who are they that they should give to me praise or blame? Criticism is part of a process of under- standing and is quite apart from praise or blame. This may be a distinction that some of my friends will refuse to recognize. Well, that is their concern. I end 1 be- gan. and repeat that there are few people who are justified in giving personal praise or personal blame. DEAR BREAD. It doc's not look as if there were going to fee any Conservatives left to make it! POOR MAN. Here is a really hard case. A working man's wife at Frauenfeld, in the Canton of Zu rich, Switzerland, has given birtn to four children in one year. In January, 1905, twins were born, and on December 31st last the woman gave birth to twins again. The four babes and the mother are doing well, but it is stated that the father has taken to drink and refuses to return home. There is nothing to be said in a case of mis kind, but what is the use of this man taking to stimulants ? WHEN. When I, a Lancashire man, became a Welshman in 1863-that is about the time Mr. Lloyd-George became a Lancashire man —we little thought of meeting Mr. Naylor, another Lancashire man, and having a nice little comfortable fight, after a cup of tea, Or-'r 3 parliamentary seat. Mr. Lloyd-George says it is not true that he is in favour of filling public offices in "Wales solely with Welshmen. Of course not, seeing that he himself is a Manchester man! The question was most absurd. BL-ICK BREAD. I can remember the bread I had to eat before 1846-black bread that would stretch like indiarubber. The people do not want black bread—dear bread. They have shown that already. They will show it more clearly before the elections are finally over. MR. BALFOUR. Although Mr. Balfour has been crushingly defeated by a Liberal at Manchester, it is not the man but the politician who has been 'rejected. There is no way of making a dis- tinction between a man and his policy. Mr Balfour is a political symbol, and the sym- bol is cast out—that is all. Mr. Balfour would not have asked Manchester to elect him out of personal regard. He went there as the Conservative leader and it is as the Conservative leader that he has lost. There need be no personal bitterness. Mr. Bal- four after his defeat, said that he had be- come attached to his constituency. Of course, and his defeat is no sign that his constituency was next attached to him, but the country is sick of extravagance, and is determined not to eat dear bread. Besides, the Birmingham political mountebank has disgusted all right-thinking people. I am waiting for Lloyd-George's figures to- morrow. I have confidence in the people: I they will remember their attachment to him and his to them. He is their political sym- Kol and more. He is their national symbol: let them not forget that fact. FACINU DANGER. There are men who in the daytime would boldly face lions and tigers and other wild beasts who would blanch and tremble and even run away if they met a full-grown VTeUh rabbit late at night! '< > UNHAPPY JOE. | Mr Chamberlain says with bitterness that' Mr. Lloyd-George occupies a subordinate position in the Liberal Government. Mr. Lloyd-George is in the Cabinet, but Mr. Chamberlain does not think much of Cab- inets he has wrecked two of them. Mr. Lloyd-George is president of the Board of Trade, but Mr. Chamberlain does not think much of national trade either: he is pre- pared to reduce it—perhaps destroy it—by an exploded and idiotic system of protection with dear food and starvation at the back of it! Is Mr. Lloyd-Goorge's position in the Gov- ernment a subordinate position ? Yes, it is, but only because he is not Prime Minister. Really, Mr. Chamberlain wants too much. It was hardly to be expected that Mr. Llcyd- George should begin his career as a. member of governments by becoming Prime Minis- ter, but most likely he will get there if Mr. Chamberlain will be patient and will go on playing the part. of fiscal fool. Mr. Lloyd-George's position in the Cab- inet as President of the Board of Trade will enable him to deal with Mr Chamberlain's fables about declining British trade and the imaginary commercial success of nations whose people eat horse sausages and taxed black bread- CA UGHT. Last Saturday afternoon, I was very weary. The general election, with its irritating de- tails, was a burden to me. The question of the local Gas Works, with its side lights, was irritating. There were, also, other things that disturbed. I made my way up Constitution Hill. The sea was a greyey-brown. The wind was south-west and fitful. The clouds were low and heavy and drifted towards Merioneth- shire. There were no threatenings of a downpour. I thought I would go and walk on Clarach beach and let the wind blow away my disquiet. I was disquieted for reasons which may not be set forth. When I got over the crest of the hill, the clouds were thicker and more fiery in the west. I decided not to pace Clarash beach and made tracks for Cwm Woods. In a short time, drops of rain began to fall, the wind came in paslies, and the valley filled with cloud. The outlook was not plea- sant, but I hoped to avoid the storm, if storm it had to be. I pushed on, but the rain began to fall in great ominous drops. There was no doubt about it the storm that had seemed to be going to Merionethshire was coming my way. I pushed on. Then there was a vivid flash of lightning and an immediate peal of rolling thunder. The thunder had scarcely died away when a scream of wind ran through the trees of Cwm followed by a heavy fall of rain which changed in a moment into a violent storm of hail. There was no help for me. I was in it. The clouds thickened. The wind hissed and moaned. The hail pattered shrilly from afar and then swept over the whole valley. 0, yes, I was in it. The hail ceased, but the rain fell steadily. I was helpless. Two lightly-clad girls and a young man pi-ss- d me. They were drenched. I made up my mind that I oould do nothing, so I accepted the situation, slackened my pace, i nd watched the storm as it played from hill to hill. I was soon wet through, but the scene was very grand. I went slowly—what was the nse of hurrying? I heard the patter of the rain and the gurgle of the streams, and the roaring of the wind: it was all very good. Well, I got home and-I was caught— fairly caught. PROBLEMS. In spite of all that science has rev3ilsd The secret of the world is secret now, As in the ancient days when men believed The earth was flat and that the sun "food still. Knowledge has grown, but so has mystery, And their own ignorance is all men know. What the deep meanings are of life and death, And right and wrong, and misery and joy, Are still as hidden in the core of things As if man had not tried to comprehend. Whatever force there lies behind the world It does not save from pain, or los. or death; Life lives on death, and death grows fat on life, And agony is piled on agony. The marvel grows and grows the more men learn While hidden lies the secret of the world. All that is counted cruelty and wrong Is found in force throughout wide nature's realms, Unmeasured ill abounds on every side, And grimmest tragedy and misery Repeat themselves anew from age to age In ways that human skill has ne'er explained The truth is, pain and loss and death are nought, Or what they mean is still to be made known.

PORTMADOC Temperance Services,—The Free Church Coun. cil arranged a series of temperance services for this week. On Monday night there was an uuited prayer meeting at the Tabernacl on Tuesday night a sermon at Garth by the Rev W Pnrri Huws, B.D., Dolgelley (C); a sermon at the Memorial by the Rev T Idwal Jones, Garn (B) The three services were remarkably well attended.

The Golf Movement.—A hitch has arisen in this movement and a meeting of the promoters was convened for last night to discuss the situa- tion. It Is to be hoped that the project which would of necessity materially eniiance the Interests of Portmadoc district as a holiday resort will not fall through. Fo.tbail.-Portnia(ioe on Saturday at home defeated Bangor Reserve by two goals to nil in the third round of the Welsh Amateur Cup Com- petition. T • The General Election.—The Liberal Club made special arrangements for the receipt of telegrams up to past midnight giving the results of the polls. A big crowd throngs the Club rooms nightly. The interval between telegrams is wniled away by stump speeches. I PKi'i'i 8-fc.SSLONS, l'riday, January 12th. —Before R. M. Greaves, Esq. (chairman), Robert Thomas, and J. T. Jones, Esqrs. Drunk and Disorderly.—A labourer named Wm. Jones, charged by P.C. 19 with this offence, was fined 2s 6d and costs. Furious Driving.—Charged by P.S. Jones and P.C. 19 with furious driving in i.1.1. street, John Jones, of the Oakeley' Arms Hotel, Maentwrog, pleaded that the horse was fresh and that he had onlv picked up driving six weeks ago.—He was let off on payment of costs. fhe Wrong Person Summoned. John Hughes, Tyrychaf, Cricciethj. was charged by Inspector Vaughan Davies with havmg sold milk adulterated with 13A ner cent of water.—The Inspector said he bought the analysed milk from defendant's daughter, Miss Dorothy Hughes.—Mr Wm. George, who defended, asked if the Inspector was aware that the milk business had been trans- ferred to Miss. Hughes five years ago?—The Injector: No. He also admitted that he had never seen Mr Hughes going round houses with milk.—Mr George: I have a short and a long answer to the charge. The short one is that the defendant is not the person liable if anybody is liable. The other answer is on the merits. We deny that water was added to the milk.—The Bench dismissed the case on account of insufficient evidence.—Allusion was made to the fact that Miss Hughes had no name on the milk can and the Inspector, in reply to the Bench, said this constituted an offence. Father and Sons.—John Roberts and Rob- ert Roberts, Beddgelert, were summoned by Mr Thomas Roberts, clerk to the Poor Law Union, in respect of th<> maintenance of their father now at the Workhouse.—Mr Rob- erts said two sons hnd agreed to payt Is a J week. In view of big families, the Guard- ians -agreed to ask defendants for 6d al week, but they refused.—Defendants ad- I dressed the Bench at length. One said he had five children and the other had six children.—The Chairman said the Bench recognised that it was difficult for the de- fendants to give much, but children must support their parents and defendants must pay 3d a week. It was not much towards a parent when the sacrifices doubtless made | by that parent were borne in mind. Child- t ren should think of the sacrifices which par- ents must have made for them when they were young. FREEHOLD PROPERTY SALE. At the Sportsman Hotel, Portmadoc, on Friday, in the presence of a large gathering, Mr John Parry Jones, auctioneer, Penrhyto- deudraeth, put up for sale a freehold estate I owned by Mr J. R.

Under Mr Roberts' management me show had flourished and he was sure they all deeply regretted his resignation. The auditors wrote testifying to the pleasure they had had of auditing the ac- counts of the Society under the excellent system and method in which they were kept by Mr Roberts.
