I Mr. Robert Ansell I J 29. Clifton Street.. Margate, under dai-e of 10th November, 1910, said.—"I have long intended to wri-e about my cure by Doan's Pills, be- cause I feel that others may be guided by the facts. I was subjec- for years to scriou4 rheumatic attacks, which I knew to be caused by kidney complaint. My back and limbs and shoulders ached incessantly. It. used to take mo fully ain hour to walk three parts of a mile. The kidney excretions were heavy Wi'Jl urij acid deposit—always in a shocking stete, in fact—and caused mo much discomfort. "Mine aieemed a chronic case, but Doan's Pills wme so strongly recommended by a Broadstairs man I know, thaii I began to take them. "Before I got half through a boxful, these Pills drd me great good, and I therefQre had reason to peraevare. Each day, then, brought improvement and within a month I was qui"û well—thoroughly cured in every way. 1 feel that all should know about these Pills. Rid of Trouble 10 Years. On 15th April, 1919, Mr. Ansell said: "1 newer have any kidney trouble now. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills rid me of all such symptoms fully Ten years ago.

Old Time Sport. I FOX HUNTING IN WALES 50 YEARS AGO. j The following are extracts from a diary kept ] by Mr N. W. Apperley, formerly of Morben, Machynlleth:— ) 1872. March 5th, Lodge Park, Gogerddan Fox- j hounds—6 couple came up to Lodge Psrk the nigjbt before, and wont out at 8-30 a.m., ac. j oompanied by Col. Pryse, John Pugh, ana self. Drew Darren-ny.llwyd, hit on a drag and a fox hearing the hounds slipped away and got a loaig start, and the hounds failed to do much with him. So we trotted down Garth Wood to the Ynyshir Cover, where the hounds hit on a wrj g°cd drag, and walked clean up to the fox, who was laying under a clean up to the fox, who was laying under a stone in the young plantation, facing the turn- pike, and got up in view. They raced him twice round the cover, and then he made for Ynyshir, but the pace was too good for him tp reach his stronghold at Domen-las, so he was forced to retrace his step:, with the 6 couple not 200 yards behind his brush, Leader leading them. Skirted the Ynyshir cover, and crossed the Turnpike, and up through Garth Wood. Unfortunately we had a long check, the fox having seen the road, but at last he was made out, and in spite of the delay, he wea so beat, that he only just managed to reach Darren- ny-llwyd in time to get in, and savei himself. Crib, who was running with the hounds, was marking him by the time we got up, so we got bars, and removed some stones, and after about hours work, I managed to carfch hold of him, and carried him out some 20 yards from the rock and threw hixn down. He im- mediately ducked under the hounds' legs and was into the rock ag-ain like a shot, but in a different place. Crib was soon at him again but unfortunately got frightfully punished on his nose, the fox biting clean through each nostril, which very near caused his death by suffocation from tjho swelling, and ever since ha has had a weeping through the nose, and will have to his dying day. After this per- foilmance we were forced to do the best: we could without a terrier, and after a deal more digging I managed to put my whip round his neck and draw him out, but this time I car. ried him some yards, and threw him down with h/s head down-hill. Then followed a sp!endid reviow, the littlo pack twisting after him, and, soon pu-led down. He was an old dog i fox. I sent his head to Henry Shaw to have a horn cup put into it, in memory of the capital sport I had with only six couple 01 hounds. We then returned to Lodge Park and put the hounds up there. My old friend foxeiy had given me cause to remember the day, by biting my hand pretty hard. 1873. October 7. Glanrheidol. Gogerddan Fox-, hounds I took 7i couple of Col. Pryse's hounds out, with Lewis as whip. I rode the bay marc and Lewis Mess Rose. Met at Mr Bcnsali's house at Glanrheidol, found directly in the cover below the White Monument, ana hunted in it for 2.b.)ut five hours, several cubs on foot. At last one broke in the direction of Cefno>:d, but was headed unfortunately by an old woman who was digging potatoes, and he soon retraced his stops back to the cover wh;cÚ was a tremendous stronghold of brush oak and other wood, and extended for miles up the valley. Fortunately the cubs did not go far, but kept for the most part to the wood they were reared, in and the hounds gave them a tremendous rallying. Every omens I expected a whco-oop, sometimes they seemed to be racing him in view, by the sharp turns they were making. To give you an idea of the oovor, I had to get up into a big tree eyery now and then to see if 1 coukl see ther.n, and then oould only hear thorn. Afterwards they took & line away to- wards tfhe river, and crossed, which must have been on an old fox, so I brought them into llio eovctr, never could find the cabs agais. They must have all got in somo- where, so as the hounds were much beat by hun^ii.g so muuh in cover, I took them home rcgrrofitvng tha,C they hadn't gjot I ciib to carry home in their bellies, which they richly deserved. I literally hadn't a. dry spot on my body, not from rain, as the day was line, but from the drip of the cover, with the hoar frost. I had been in cover for three :hour3 the Vnounds, cgiecirKn.g- them on He d acoIne liquor and food at Glanrheidol and then wont homo, much pleased with the be- haviour of the hounds, especially the puppies. October 13. Lodge Park. Gogerddan Fox- bf uinds. Lewis brought 9 aouple of hounds and two terriers up from Pcithvll in the morn-iig for mo to hunt. The mornino- was very fine, there having been a hoar-frost, ooon after breakfast we heard the o!d Colonel s Voice shouting "Oome on," so on we walked to meet our horses-and hounds Will Jenkins's old house. I mounted my hunter, the bay horse, only a poor 'un, and first drow Ynys-heidol cover blank, but it was cettainly blank to mo, for I came out of it as wet as if I had been overhead in the river, from the drip. We then trotted on to 8 of PantglE*. and found immediately on which the whole pack joined, and gave hun a tremendous bursting At last the Colonel viewed him, and it proved to be a cub, looking much the worse for his gallop, and would have soon succumbed, had not ona. of his kind relatives taken his place". And so it went on, till we had 4 or 5 foxes afoot and unfortunately two couple of our best hounds (namely, Babam, Lapwing, Song- stress and Lictor) stolo away on an old fox without our knowledge, and wera lost for the rest of the day. They were brought back by John Rowlands, having very near killed fox near Caerhedyn. The fox had tuod to got into the farm buildings, but filled, and there thoy lost him.

A fast open game was played on the Town Ground on Saturday, the visitors being Llanjbyther. Despite a strong wind, play was of a high standard. Llanybyther pressed during the whole of the first half and showed good combination. After a good round of passing they were rewarded a goal scored by Evans. The teams crossed over with Llanybyther leading by a goal. The home team improved in the second half and n a melee in front of the visitors' goal Llanyby- ther goalie, in attempting to clear -while on the ground, threw the ball through his own goal, thus making the score equal. Both teams tried hard to gain the winning pdnt but there was no further score. The referee was Mr T. Young, Cilgwyn-row, and the two lines- men wero Mr. Tom Jones, Blaenmachnog, and Mr. T. A. Thomas, Llanybyther. OBITUARY.—The death took place on Saturday of Mr. David Jones, eldest son of | Mr. and Mrs. T. Jones, Laura House, Pont- twelly, at the ago of twenty-three years.

Aberystwyth Education Commitse. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE Aberystwyth District Education Committ* met on Monday, present, Mr. Percy Wilkin- son, chairman; Messrs. Pater Jones, C. U. Williams, D. C. Roberts, T. J. Morgan, Henry Bonsall the Revs. T. Mason Jones, and ChM. Evans, 'Messrs. E. A. Powell, Morns Davies, Hafod; T. J. Samuel, Mrs. T. Z. Jones, R. J. R. Loxdale, Captain Doughton, Jenkin E. Evans, Dav d Lewis, Llanrhystyd; Dr. James, Richard Evans Penrhyncoch; Isaac Jones, W. Griffiths, Jenkin James, director; and Dr. Davies, county medical officer. Mr. D. A. Lloyd reported the attendance for November in Group 1 (Borough division) at 92.4 per cent; winner of the banner. Alexandra- road boys, 95.2; Group 2 (North of Rheidol), 85.4; Group 3, 87.6; Group 4 (South Rheidol), 85.3; and Group 5, 90.1.—It having been stated that Penparke was low, the Chairman asked what was the meaning of children without boots; and Mr. W'lliams said buld be obtained from the Guardians—Mr. David Lewis said that attendanoe largely depended on the headmasters.—Mr. C. M. Williams re- marked that Ponterwyd was exceedingly low. He was surprised to see that in Cardiganshire there were between 1,400 and 1,500 absent from school every day which meant a great loss of revenue as well as a loss to the child- ren. There were nearly 8,000 on the books in the county whereas the average attendance was 6,566 only.—Mr. Bonsall said in some cases ch ldren living on the mountains had to walk I a mile or a mile and a half to school and he I had sympathy with parents in keeping their children at home in bad weather. It was not always a. matter of money that should he considered, but a matter of health. No doubt magistrates looked at the matter in that way. —The Rev. Chas. Evans said there might be some blame on the headmaster, but no doubt children had to go to school from the moun- tains and the outskirts.—The Chairman said the Committee had been hammering at attend- ance for a long time and had not succeeded in materially raising the attendance.—Mr. C. M. Williams said the attendance rather was going back.—The Chairman thought the methods were defective artcj that other methods must be devise(i.-M-. C. M. Willi-,iin:; said that there were few children under five years at. Ponterwyd in comparison w th other schools. It was in his view not altogether a question of money, but of loss to the children by not being educated.—The Rev. T. Mason Jones said he should like to have a return by the attendanoe officers of children attending school from a distance of two miles. He be- lieved t.liere was a jsreaJer percenta?e at Ponterwyd than at other sehoo's:—The Rev. Chas Evrns said the reason why some parents kepf; their children at home n bad weather I was that they had to remain in wet clothes; and he did not think anyone would S<1;, that that attitude was unreasonable.—Mrs. T. Z. Jones thought an improvement could be secured by onening the schools a little later; but it was stated in reply that Ponterwyd opened at 9.30.—Mr. C. M. Williams said ir, some cases head teachers saw that the child- ren's clothes and bcrts were dried.—Mr Lox- dale suggested that Mr. Chas Evans should see what could be done at Ponterwyd to prove attendance, and it wis understood that Mr. Evans would do so.—Mr. Alban Lews having remarked that L'anafan attendance would have been better but for illness, Mr. C. M. Williams aid the officer was always mak- ing excuses.—Mr. D. C. Roberts said the Com- mittee knew there were p'enty of reasons and good reasons for non attendance; but there was no reason why nar-nts and others should not try to secure better for the sake of the children. The officer would see by Group 5 what was possible and it was hoped he would work up to it.

University Aid. WALES AND RECONSTRUCTION. PREMIER'S LETTER. THE COLLEGES AND THEOLOGY. BRECONSHIRE CONDITION ACCEPTED. The annual extra-collegiate meeting of the Court of the University of Wales was held at Chester on Friday, Lord Kenyon, senior deputy chancellor, presiding. 8,ir. Harry Reichel, vice-chancellor, read the flowing letter from the Prime Min:ster:- I have considered the proposal for the re- construction of the University of Wales contained in our letters of tho 26th May and 23rd July and relative documents, which, oi the whole appear to fulfil the first condition which I laid down, that th. recommendation of the Royal Commission should in the main be adopted There are certain points, however, relat- ing to finance and other matters, on which I think it would be advantageous for a small deputation to ^fie me, with my advisors. As the deputation is designed to deal with definite matters of practical im- portance, it will bd we.l to limit its num- bers, and I would suggest five mombers representing the University, and an equal number representing the local authorities. The following were appointed to represent the University an the deputation:—The Senior Deputy Chancellor, the Viee-Chancel- Jor, the Chairman of the Central Welsh Board, and the principals of Cardiu and Aberystwyth colleges. Lord Kenyon was unanimously re-olccted Senior Deputy Chancellor. Lord Kenyon, in thanking the Court, said they all knew the difficult times tfte University was passing through at present. It would be a. great pleasure to him <f he was able to "sail the ship" into smoother waters in the course of time. FIRST LADY DEPUTY CHANCELLOR. Lady Verney was unanimously" elected Junior Deputy Chancellor, and is tho first lady to occupy the office. Professor Jenkyn Jones, Aberystwyth, said there was a strong feeling in the Guild of Graduates that at present its representation on the Court of the University was insufficient and should) be increased. Graduates of the University stood in a very intimate rela- tion to the University. They represi ntcd the realised purpose of the University, and it was clear- from the final report) of tho Commis- sioners that in the future it was intended that the graduates should piny a far more im- portant oole in the UniversTy system than they had done in the past. If l:c understood the temper of the Guild rightly, they would "knock at the door" of the Court repeatedly until their request was met. He suggested that the decision of the Standing Executive Committee that it was impossible to re-open the question of the representation assigned to the several sections on the Court should be reconsidered. 8 r Harry Reichel said if-the constitution of the Court was thrown into the melting pot they did not know what would happen. Any change, it seemed to him. would bo to sacrifice all that had been gained so far in the constitution. The recommendation of the Committee was adopted. THE UNIVERSITY AND THEOLOGY. The Standing Executive Committee re- norted having cons'derod a resolution passed by tbe Breconshire County Council with- drawing assent to the levy of a penny rate in aid of University education in Wales, m view of the interpretation attached by the Court at its last meeting to the resolution of th conference of local education authorities— "That no public money be devoted to the teach'ng of subjects usually confined to theological schools." The Committee unani- mousty recommended the Court to withdraw the interpretation attached to the resolution, so that the approval given to the resolution miht stand unconditional. In moving the recommendation of tha Committee, Lord Kenyon said at the last meeting the Court considered the resolution, "That no public money should be devoted to the teaching of subiect3 usually confined to schofs." The Court thought those words were'ra'her vague and suggested an interpretation that prevented the teaching of any dogmatic theology. Since then the Breconshire people had persisted in their objections to the interpretation and it looked very much as if a great storm would rise out of a very small cloud. He had had considerable negotiations with varous people, and eventually it led to the recommendation of the Committee that they should accept the motion of the Breconshirte authorities. He did not think there was anything to divide them from the Breconshire authority at all. They wanted the local authorities with them; in the future they were going to depend upon the local authorities for considerate rate aid. Principal Thomas Rees, of Bangor, said it would be the wisest course to accept the formula as originally drawn up, though it was quite impossible to arrive at its meaning. He wished to draw attcut on to the general effect of the Court being compelled to accept this formula. It meant a revolution in the govern- ment of the University, and a. government from outside. While heartily in agreement with tho control of the University by representatives of the local education authorities, he thought that the control ought to be exercised by the representatives of the local authorises assembled together, but here, against ftheir better judgment, the Court were compoUed to accept a resolution passed by an outside body. Further, the Court was being controlled by a minority. One county council had passed the resolution, and at most half a. dozen had en- dorsed it. Lastly, they were controlled by people who had not taken the trouble real y to make themselves acquainted with the point at issue- Professor Jenkyn Jones, of Aberystwyth, said he did not liko the idea of doing what the Soeior Deputy Chancellor had said they were doing without assigning a reason for it. In his op'nion, neither of the two forms in which the condition was laid down really expressed the mind of the Court, but they were prepared to accept that form which received the bene. diction of Brecon. Eithdr foiyn placed, the teaching of theology aO-a. disadvantage in com- parison with the teaching of other subjects. It was quite inconsistent with the University ideal to impose dtoy restrictions whatsoever upon the teaching of any subject which he. longed to the realm of knowledge. At the same time he quite realised that ideals not always be realised. He proposed to add toO the resolution rescinding the interpretation objected to the rider, "for the sake of preserv- ing the national unity, which is a matter of paramount importance at this juncture." Professor J. Morgan Jones, Bangor, was rising to second the amendment when it was moved "that the question be now put," and, this being carricd by a largo majority the recommendation of tho Standing Executive Committee was carried, wish three or four dis- sentients. After further discuss'-on, the recommenda- tion of the Committee wu adopted, and tke interpretation withdrawn. INSTRUCTION IN WELSH. On cons:deration of the report of the Senate, Mr W. Edwards (chief inspector of the Central Board) complained that Welsh was not being used in the colleges, as it is in the secondary schools, as a medium of instruction. The medium was generally English. The Vice-Chancellor said that the proposal to treat Welsh i ke French or German did not seem to him advisable. Welsh was one of tha vernacular languages. Mr. Edwards said that. some pupils wished to acquire a "knowledge of Welsh. The Vice-Chancellor—They talk it to the other students. I do not like the idea of label- ling it as a foreign tongue. A vote was taken on the proposition that Welsh should be treated "on the same lines as a foreign tongue." It was defeated by a narrow margin. A congregation of the University afterwards took place for the conferment of degrees. HONORARY DEGREES. METHODIST LEADER HONOURED.
