.!IL Have to Hide the Bottle. If not, the Children would take it 'all at one dose, they like it so well." — >Vv;Vi cfyk tor?" '^v 'y I BEATRICE JENNINGS. (From a Photograph.) There are many reasons why Scott's Emul- sion is the best of all household remedies. In the first place, it is common in every household at one time or another for the health of some member of the family to de- cline. From any one of a hundred or a thousand causes tbo svsteta becomes under- minpd. Then at the first exposure there is a cough or cold, or bronchitis, or some other ailment which needs prompt attention. Scott's Emulsion is the best known specific for coughs, colds, and bronchitis, and all othf r forms of inflammation of threat or lungs, but as a specific is only a small part of its usefulness. To get down deeper into the cause of these local affections and,treat the system as a whole is the best use to which Scott— Emulsion can he applied. In writing about the general use of Scott's Emui-ion for colds, a gentletaan from Pres- ton, Lancashire, says.:— • "33, Euston street, "Preston, Lancashire, "May 3rd, 1899. *) \.r Sirs,—T cannot speak too highly of Scotch Emulsion: it has done my children more good for colds thanjanything they have ever taken. You may bo well assured that Scott's Emulsion will be weIr reccmmended by u? to friends and others. We have to hide the bottle; if not, the children would p take it all at one dose, they like it so well. Yours faithfully, (Signed) "GEORGE JENNINGS." In Mr Jennings's letter we find another reference to the tondness of children fox the taste of Scott's Emulsion. In fact, in the majority of letters which we havo received from those who describe the benefits derived bv their children from Scott's Emulsion the're is a special reference to thte avidity with which children take this preparation. Tftis fact alone is most satisfactory, because as a rule children dislike taking medicine, but in reality it is of minor importance com- pared-to the perfect form in which Scott's Emulsion offers cod-liver oil to digestion. Where the plain oil upsets the stomach and deranges digestion, Soott's Emulsion will have a favourable e'ffect upon it. In fact this preparation stimulates the appetite, and by its ease of absorption it is quickly taken into the blood, where it is used to improve the condition of the whole system. Scott's Emulsion is a standard remedial agent endorsed by all physicians. You can obtain a sample of Scott's Em- ulsion by sending threepence to cover post- age to Scott and Bowse, Limited, Manu- facturing Chemists, 95, Great Saffron Hill, London, E.C., and mentioning this paper. All chemists sell Scott's Emulsion. BOER TRENCHES BYSKCMLWMUANT 8,.L CS 'I NE4JX r Mustam AT MftGERSFOWTESri. Major the Rev. B. P. Lowry, Senior Wesleyan Chaplain to the Forces, with the Rev. T. F. Falkncr, Senior Church of England Chaplain, visited these trenches immediately after the Boer -retreat from their mighty stronghold. Mr. Lovry writes to the Methodist Recorder Of course I did not go to those trenches and laagers for purposes of loot. That is scarcely in my line, though naturally I picked up a few curios, as in duty bound. But the professional looters, who were there betimes, were in some cases well repaid for their trouble. We are told that in the tents of Boer officers diamond rinog and gold watchep, and portmanteaus full of various valuables, were found. The retreat musfc have been hurried enough to justify its being called a rout; an? the line of retirement was for a long way littered with abandoned spoils. Large supplies of sundry kinds of food and clothing were left in the tienches 14 or beside them, and I was astonished to note how large a portion of the Boer belongings had originally come from England. One of our poets tells us that J? Sympathy without relief r I* like mustard without beef.' I saw no beef in the Boer trenches except in the, to no, repulsive form of stale « biltong. Of that there must have been tons left; but the mustard was there— « good old English, with the famous Bult's Head on the tin." •' • *<• I. nj- "THE FAMOUS BULL'S HEAD" IS THE TRADE -MARK OF COLMAN'S MUSTARD. ? • • .Jo ,,( "t,,¡., t0i!: ,(.r V" 'H.¡t' t WORTH A GUiNEA A BOX. wig OtE s Pi FOR ALL BILIOUS AND NERVOUS DISOIt-DERS, SUCH AS Sick Headache, Constipation.

0 Letter to the Editor. BANGOR PIER ENTERTAINMENTS. Sir,-We have just had entertainments on the pier and at the Penrhyn Hall, given by the "Pierotts," and I was much pleased with their efforts. My recollection at once reverted to fcrmer entertainers who had been engaged by the Corporation, and I quite certain that the "Pierotts" eclipsed them all. There was at the outset one strong point m their favour, viz., that they looked re- spectable, without any suggestion of any- thing low about them. In this they com- pared more than favourably with their pre- decessors. Next they realised for us that it was pos- sible to have fun-exquisite fun-without vulgarity. This is saying enough to render comparisons unnecessary. Further there was a freshness, a spon- taneity, about their fun, which was very refreshing. There was nothing forced- nothing put on. In addition to all this they gave us something more than the meirely comic. Life was not intended to be all one good laugh, but has its refined and even serious side, and here we had a company which could meet us in that aspect, and that without giving the impression of any in- congruity. The duet "Ora pro nobis" was a musical treat, and the same may be said of many of the songs. The bass solos in particular are excellent, and it is not often we have the pleasure of listening to a good bass soloist. Mrs Buxton has a voice of striking purity, power, and flexibility, and her songs are a treat to hear. The sum and substance of all this is that I hope the Corporation will be able to come to terms with this talented company for the ensuing season. I feel sure they can do nothing that will more tend to popu- larise the pier, while at the same time pro- viding an entertainment that is sparkling, popular, and entirely unobjectionable.— Yours, «&c., BANGORIAN.
Mr W. Jones, M.P., on the War The principal speaker at a meeting held at Garnant, South Wales, on Thursday was Mr W. Jones, M.P. In speaking of the various political questions of the day that we're awaiting settlement, he said a sensible word in season with regard to what our atti- tude should be in face of the ever-present question of the war in South: Africa. He pleaded for the right of private judgment, and tolerance among conflicting opinions, and asserted the right of conscience to the last word upon the question when the day of judgment came. He showed, however, hiow tongue-tied the nation and the press felt at present while the crisis was upon them, not because Britain loved war, but because its sons were pouring out their best blood on the field of battle. The crisis, however, would pass, and we could then appeal with- out prejudice to the final issue, to the sober judgment of the country and a free press. With regard to the question of education, the speaker warmly recommended the block- grant system of the new Code in principle, but advocated the raising of the amount of the grant and its application to Higher Grade Schools. He then introduced an interesting discussion Of the proposed Ro- man Catholic University for Ireland, draw- ing a striking parallel between Trinity Col- lege, Dublin, in its relation to Catholic Ire- land and Lampeter College in relation to Nonconformist Wales, and emphasising the place of education in bringing about gradu- ally a Protestant Reformation in Ireland.
Menal Bridge District Council. The annual meeting was held on Thurs- day evening. Mr Walter R. Jones, the retiring chairman, sa'id that he wished to thank the members df the Council for the co-operation and support extended to him during his year of office, and he trusted that they would extend the same co-opera- tion to his successor. It had been sug- gested to him that he should allow himself to be nominated as chairman once again (hear, hear). However, he had decided not to do so. First, because the honour which had been conferred by the Legisla- ture upon the chairman of urban authori- ties had not been taken full advantage of. The Chairman of Urban Councils were qualified as magistrates and could sit upon the Bench, but he found that, being a prac- tising solicitor, he was ineligible, and therefore could never qualify. — Mr T. Roberts proposed, and Mr John Davies se-. conded, that Mr Walter R. Jones be re- elected chairman for the ensuing year, but after some conversation Mr W. R. Jones refused to allow bisnime to be put up. Mr W. R. Jones moved that Mr John Da- vies Jones be elected to the post. — The vice-chairman, Mr Cadwaladr Davies, and Dr R. M. Williams were also nominated, the two former withdrawing. On being fmt to the vote four voted for Dr R. M. Wil- iams and seven for Mr John Davies Jones, who was elected. — Mr Cadwaladr Davies was elected vice-chairman, — Mr T. Hughes, the clerk, reported that the at- tendances of the members (out of a pos- sible seventeen) for the year were as fol- low: — Messrs J. Davies, 10; George Hand, 14; John Davies Jones, 8; Richard Abbot Jones, 10; Walter R. Jones, 15; William Jones, 11; Joseph O. Knight, 16; Thomas Roberts, 17; Henry Tliomas, 16; R. G. Thomas, lo; William Robert Tho- mas, 13; Evan Williams, 13; Griffith Wil- liams, 14; John Williams, 14; and Dr R. M. Williams, 14.

Holt Newell, Portmadoc, last Friday evening, at the Royal Madoc Arms Hotel. The guests were the Rev and Mrs LI. R. Hughes, Mr David Breese, Revs G. Salt and R. H.. Williams, and Mr J. Percy Thomas. After clearing the tables, a miscellaneous programme was gone through. Songs, addresses, recita- tions, &c., were given by the Revs George Salt, B.A., R. H. Williams, B.A., and R. R.
