Gurncy, R.N.—The c'gs are always appreciatEd and really we look forward to them. I was sorry to hear of the death of one of my old friends, Tom Cartwright. He will be missed by a lot of us as lie was a good sportsman, especially with football. The words of cheer are always acceptable.

Rees i's down with fever I take his cigs to him. I had a letter from Rees last night. He is feeling a lot better and hopes to be soon again with us. 1 have bien laid up with fever for some time, but I am pleased to say I am with the bjys again and feeLng Al. I received a letter from one of my old Aber. chums, Corpi. David Joseph. I was glad to hear from him and tJ know he was well. I have no special news from this country, as it is a poor place for news. We are still at the old game, but still we keep smil ng, especially when we get a latter or parcel from the old country. Pte D. O. Morgan, Salonika.—I have read in the "Cambrian News" all about the Y.M.C.A. and I wish it every success. I shall be pleased to become a member when I return Lome. I thank all trtie kind friends of Aber. for the g >od part taken on our behalf. Lance-Corpl. D. Evans, Italy.-—The English cig i's very precious these days in Italy, where it is very hard to get. I wish you every luck with your good work which I can assure you is highly thought of by the Aber. soldier. I shall be delighted to become a member of the Y.M.C.A. Pte J. Morgan. France- Tobacco we get here is poor and burns the tongue. I quite appreciate the trouble and sacrifice that vou and our friends at Aber. do for us, and I am doing my best to be worthy of my native place. I have not seen anybody from Aber. since I have been here. We are doing our best, work- ing day and night ( n shifts) to keep things going. I hope you are all well at Aber., the same as I am at present. An acknowledgment has also been received from Pte. J. P. Jones, Salonika. Pte. Tom Rees, Egypt.—Your grateful parcel to hand which is appreciated. I expect to be in Aber. before long. I am keeping in the best of health and hope to do so till the end by God's grace and strength. Remember me to the kind friends of Aber. for sympathy towards me. towards me. Trumpeter D. Parry, Egypt—Your welcome parcel to hand for which I thank you and Aber. friends. We all admire the noble work you have taken in hand as you know there is nothing more enjoyable than a smoke. It seems to take away all troubles and you feel at home once more. I shall only be too glad to become a member of the Y.M.C.A. and I hope jt will prove a success.

I was sorry to see that so many of the dear boys of Aber. have been killed. May God grant to the relatives help :ind strength t,) bear the heavy blow. I also noice that my old pal, Tom Humphreys, is missing. I do hope his parents have heard from him by now. I received a P.C. from my brother Billy the other day. He has been in a British convalescent camp at Corfu. The change has done h m a lot of good. I am Al at present. I hope I shall not get any more attacks of malaria. I am writing this in my dug-out. When on works parade this mornl'g we got wet through and had to return. The last Aber. boy I met was George Roberts. He was looking well. I also met a corporal from the same company as D. J. Lewis and lie told me that n,T was mentioned by his officer for some good work. The last, time I met him in France a few days before we left for this country. T was very pleased to hear you have opened a Y.M.C.A at Aber. It is one of the i—i. + anyone r.cJ1Jlrl havp pSI'lpr.;a1h' to us who are in these far-off countries, and if I am spared to come back again I should very much like to be a member. The kind friends are good to think of us. Pte. Harry Hopkins, France—Your kind par- cel received in the nick of t me. I am glad to say I am quite well and hope you are all the same. We are at a decent place at present and I hope we shall remain there over Christmas. Since I last wrote to you I met an Aber. boy— Gomer Thomas, Penparke.

LLANILAR. An interesting subject was treated by the Debating Society on Friday—"Is Revenge Justi- fiable under any Circumstances." The affirma- tive was taken by Mr. John Jones, 'Maesgwyn Hall, who argued that revenge, punishment, justice, etc., were the same. He essayed to prove that, revenge i's justifiable by Old Testa- ment teaching. Mr. D. Lloyd Rees, who at the last moment undertook to lead the negative, took the standpoint of the teaching of Christ. Several phases of the subject were dealt with by Messrs. D. W. Lewis, Cwrtvcadno; Ior- werth Edwards. Smithy; Jenkin Jones, Dol- fawr; Edward Lloyd, Station; Thomas James, Blaenwern; M. T. Jones, Morgan Edwards, Tanvfynwent; and J. J. Jones, Tyncoed. The ChaiViiian (Mr. J. Richards) announced that the affirmative had carried by eleven votes to ten. The subject this week is—"Is War Justi- fiable in the Light of Christianity."

Pwllheli Brothers. Captain J. R. ANTHONY, Son of the late Alderman W. Anthony, J.P., Pwllhlei, was a solicitor practising with Messrs Picton Jones and Roberts. He held a commis- sion in the R.W.F. and a few months before the outbreak of war joined the special re- serves. He was transferred to the Royal Fly- ing Corps in January, 1915, and in the follow- ing May obtained his wings, thus qualifying as a flying officer. He afterwards did much flying in this country and in France. While in France he received from the General in Com- mand of the Seventh Army Corps a letter con- gratulating him on his magnificent exploits in the air. He was nroted flight Commander early this year. When last seen he was reported fighting gallantly against heavy odds above the German lines. He was forced down severely wounded and died on the following morning, May 26th, 1917. The Late Private W. R. ANTHONY, Sons of the late Alderman W. R. Anthony.
Llanafan Lad Killed. HIT BY SHELL SPLINTER. Sapper D. M. Richard" R.E., was killed in France by a piece of shell on November 20th while work ng on a concrete gun emplacement. He was born at 74, High-street, Treorchy, twenty-four years ago within two days of the date of his death. He was educated at Tre- orchy School and Higher Grade, Pentre, and was for some years at Llanafan School. At the age of fourteen years he went as a book- ing clerk to Treorchy, T.V.R., and after three years served three years apprenticeship with Mr. Alban Richards, contractor, Ton Pentre, I Sapper D. M. RICHARDS. i as carpenter. Before enlisting he was working with King and Davies, Mariborough-road, New- port. He joined the R.E. at Christmas follow- ing the outbreak of hostilities in August, and after trailing at Porthcawl, Abergavenny, and Winchester went out to France on November 27th, 1915. He went through many a hard fight, including Mametz Wood and Pilkin, and served twelve months in Belgium on the Ypres Canal. His parents now reside at the old home at Bontiach, Llanafan. In a letter to Mrs. R'chards, Lieut. Doyle says that Sapper Richards was hit by a splinter from a shell whilst at duty. He was always most conscientious at his work and his death cast a gloom over the whole company. The funeral took place at Erguingham Cemetery (Brit ah) on Wednesday, 21st November. Second Lieut. Daman, who was with Sapper Richards when he was killed, writes:—"Your son was working on a concrete machine gun emplacement behind our support line. The .Corporal in charge of the building of the em- placement was there and I started to give him instructions. I asked for a foot-rule which your son handed to me. About a minute after- wards the shell came along. For a second I thought we were all right; but your son sud- denly ran to me with his hand on his s-de I and said quite quietly, I'm hit, Sir,' and fell I down at my feet. I sent immediately to the R.A.M.C. Dress'ng Station (which was quite near) and meanwhile dressed the wound. The doctor shortly afterward came along, but he saw at a glance that your son was dead. He was unconscious thirty seconds after having been hit and must have expired within three minutes. He felt absolutely no pain. The wound was a small one in the right side about ten inches from the under part of the shoulder. Dear Mrs Richards believe me, I sympathise very much with you in your great loss. I know that your son was a good fellow in even- sense of the word and he was much loved and know that your son was a good fellow in every sense of the word and he was much loved and I very popular with his fellow soldiers. He was buried on Wednesday in the British Cemetery with our other soldiers who have fallen. He looked very peaceful and quite happy, if I can say so, just as if he were asleep. I attended li s funeral along with his feliow sappers, who were his spec al chums. Please accept my sin- ccrest sympathy in your sad loss." Second Lieut. A. F. Thomas, in a letter, says that David was buried by a Welsh Nonconform- ist minister and nearly all the old boys of the j section and two officers of the company attended.

THE DRINK TRAFFIC. AN EDUCATIONAL CAMPAIGN. Under the auspices of an influential com- mittee, of which Dr. G. B. Hunter, the New- castle builder, is the chairman, a series of educational meetings dealing with the question of the drink traffic has been organised for England, Scotland, and Wales, and already several have taken place. Altogether about. 1.000 meetings have been arranged for in no less than -'00 different cities, towns, and vil- lages, and it is estimated that at the c'ose a grand aggregate1 of 300.900 persons will have taken part. The meetings are in no senze in the I nature of an agitation, but have as their main object the education of the public in regard to the drink traffic. These facts are set forth by f eminent pubi c men, who speak from experience with prohibitory legislation. Amongst them are Mr. J ames Simpson, vice-president of the Trades and Labour Congress of Canada, who went t) the Domin'on from Lancashire when fourteen years of age; Dr. C. M. Sheldon, a noted author and preacher of America, whose two bo ks. "Tn His Steps." and "What Would Jesus Do?" have won world-wide fame. The m?etings are of quite a novel character so far as this country is concerned. No attempt, is made by the speakers to force any opin'on on their audiences. They entirely confine themselves to facts and figures relating to America and Canada, and a free discussion is afterwards invited; but no resolution is sub- mitted, hence no one is committed to any action or opinion. Freedom is the keynote of the campaign.
AT THE FRONT. AFTER CHRISTMAS. We, at home, who do not look forward to the wet and cold which will certa'nly be with us after Christmas, can hardly realise the dis- comforts which they bring to the troops in France and Flanders, who are exposed to all the rigors of bad weather. Our readers will find few Christmas gift, more appreciated by their friends on active service than a tin of Homocea Ointment, which for a generation has proved so beneficial for cuts, bruises. c'i I- blains, chapped hands and feet, and frostbite. It is also indispensable in the case of colds. chests or throat trouble. An eminent docfiotr states that it is a most wonderful preparation and should be used even more widely than it is. A tin should be enclosed in every Christmas parcel, the cost is only 1/3. Do not forget our sailor boys in the North Sea! They know its value.
