WHAT IS SOCIALISM. I Sir,—I am afraid that Mr Williams has resorted to the tactics which he advised me to refrain from at the outset of this discussion, i.e., abusing one's opponent. He entered upon this dis- cussion rather lightly, but it looks as if he has had more than he bargained for. He started by attacking what is regarded by the uninformed as Socialism—equal distribution and he finishes last week with a tirade against Communism. I wonder when is he going to advance one argument against Socialism. I have pointed out that the principles of Social- ism are being adopted in national and local governments, and I have cited several instances. Mr Williams does not attempt to deny the utility of these measures. I suppose it is far more con- venfent for him to ask for my name and address. However, I will still sign myself, M Ash. OPTIMIST. Dear Sir,- Undei the above heading in last week's LEADER there was a reply or an attempt to reply by Mr Tom Williams, Aberaman, and judging from that reply it seems that his conception of human nature is indeed a very narrow one. From arguments set forth by Mr Williams one is asked to believe that there is no good at all in human nature, but one has only to look around him in these days to prove that these argu- ments are more or less piffle. Is he aware that we are gradually growing from the age of atavism, and that our minds are developing towards a greater and nobler ideal ? Is he aware also that this development cannot be checked ? He says that human nature is not yet ripe for Socialism, and contends that because that is so it will never be attain- able. It could have been said in the early ages that such a state of society as that which exists to-day was unattain- able, but at the same time nothing happened to prevent the people from thinking. I do not say that the people are ripe for Socialism, neither do I say that it will ever be so, but there is nothing to prevent their minds from becoming ripe. Mr Williams states that Socialism is a dream of hopeless and cranky dreamers. It may be a dream as yet, but it is not hopeless, for part of it is being realised, and if they are cranky what a pity it is that there are no more about!—Yours, SOCIALIST. Dear Sir.—I should like if Mr Thos. Williams would state more fully his 41 scheme." What does he mean by Voluntary Co. operation ? Does he think that men will co-operate volun- tarily under the system that is operating through competition? Our employers and governors have combined for econ- omic reasons, and the workmen will be forced to combine for the same reasons. Voluntary Co-operation is out of the question. Our sentinels cry out to us from every point, Unite, Agitate and Educate," i.e., prepare yourselves to meet your foe; not as Mr Thomas Williams says, "Wait until you have the necessary qualifications to unite and agitate." In such a case, Mr Williams, who shall be judge ?-I am, W.J.D. L. CLOSING OF SHOPS. bir,—Kindly allow me a little space to Write re the closing of shops on the event of the Aberdare Horse Show. Last year we were all confusion at closing time, which was fixed for one o'clock. But some shops broke off after signing the paper to close. I hope that We shall all close at the same time this Year. It can be done by going round early enough to sign the paper, instead of rushing it on the very morning of the show.—I remain, A SHOP ASSISTANT. JUNIOR FOOTBALL. Dear Sir,—In view of the coming football season may I ask through the LEADER, if some gentleman in the town will present a set of medals for com- petition among clubs comprised of mem- bers under the age of twenty ? We all take great interest in the School League, and I think there ought to be a league for Junior clubs (not those where the average age of the players is about 24 and 25 years, but lads about 17 or 18). When the lads leave school there are some very good players amongst them, but they have to wait about four Or five years before they can play in a team again, being too young for the Junior clubs about here. I think it Would be a great help to Junior football if a league could be formed for clubs Whose members must be under the age of 20 at the outside. If some kind friend will take this matter in hand he Will be greatly helping football in the Aberdare district and will earn the thanks of all Junior enthusiasts and INTERESTED. SUNDAY TRADING. Sir,—I was much surprised, Mr Editor, that you should insert a string of verses Upholding Sunday trading. At one time the advocates of Sunday trading hung their defence on the rail- Way companies-that what was lawful *°r them was legitimate for any one else, ^ow it is the poor widow who is taotted out. Are there any such poor widows ? heY seem to be all very able-bodied people-who trade, not for the con- venience of others, but for their own pockets. This custom encourages laziness and lack of forethought. We see sand, po. tatoes, etc., etc., fetched from these shops on Sunday, and not for shortness of money on Saturday night either. I think this mythica! poor widow would have more support from right- thinking peojjle if she closed her shop on Sunday, and showed reverence and re- spect for that day by attending a place of worship.—Yours, JOHN JONES.
Hirwain Publican Fined, POLICE HIDING IN A VAN. At the Cefn Petty Sessions on Thurs- day (before Colonel D. R. Lewis and other magistrates) Rees Stephen Davies, licensee of the Butchers' Arms, Hirwain, was summoned for selling intoxicating liquor during prohibited hours on Sun- day, August 11th. Mr Ernest Jones appeared to prose- cute on behalf of the police, and Mr F. P. Charles defended. P.C.'s Hamer and Jones hid in a van in the yard of the Brecon Arms, 70 yards away, and through two small windows in the van they kept the Butchers Arms under observation. Their narrative was that they saw two men, named Coates and Cox pass the public house and make a sign with their hands. The two men then went up to the door of the public- house, passed in something and then received something, which they put into their inside coat pocket. The constables went up, and found that each man had a bottle of stout in his pocket. Defend- ant denied that he sold the stout, saying that his was a tied house, and he could not sell the liqour produced. He called one Watkins, late licensee of the Rail- way Inn, who said that he sold the stout to Cox. The bench imposed a fine of £3 and costs on Daves, and fined Cox 5s and costs for aiding and abetting. Barry Summer School. The above school this last month has been a most decided success. One hundred and forty teachers from the Glamorgan Schools were busily at work for the term. The exhibition which was held at the close was well worth a visit. The wood carving was really excellent, and all the other subjects taken showed maris of excellence. If some of these subjects were taken up in the Council Evening Class Schools, they would enlist general interest, and tend to greatly popularise these classes. Considering the amount of money spent by the County on these classes during the last winter, amounting to some £ 19,000, it would be well if those in authority made some effort to popularise and increase the interest in them. Great credit is due to Mr Sutcliff for the admirable organisation and manage- ment of these classes. Two of the Aberdare Governors put in an appearance, viz., Councillor David Hughes and Mrs Walter Lloyd. Very large crowds of people from various parts visited the exhibition on both days.
HEALTH POWER AND COOD DIGESTION The power to think well, work well, sleep well, and enjoy life depends mainly upon the ability of your digestive organs to extract strength and nourishment from food. When digestion fails, as in dyspepia and indigestion, the body is starved, no matter how much food is eaten., Your body is also poisoned, for food remaining in the stomach ferments, producing poisonous gases, which, being absorbed into the blood, shatter the nerves, dull the brain, create disease, and give rise to headaches, languor, loss of appetite, palpitation, flatulence, and other disorders of the blood and nerves. When from errors in diet, climatic changes, or overwork, the stomach, liver and kidneys fail to perform their func- tions perfectly, there is no remedy that will so soon restore them to health and vigour as the tonic extract of roots and herbs, Mother Seigel's Syrup, As a digestive tonic and stomachic remedy it has no equal. This is the testimony of thousands whom it has cured of chronic indigestion and dyspepsia. This was the case with Mrs Gertrude Grimes, 29, Gertrude road, Sprowston road, Norwich. On February 25th, 1907, she wrote :—" I had not been well for a long time. I never could eat in the morning but felt dull and run down. Often there were pains at my stomach, and I was troubled with wind and head- ache. Constipation, too, caused me much distress, and altogether I was thoroughly out of sorts and ill. I worked away with home remedies, till at last I was advised to try Mother Seigel's Syrup. That was the beginning of relief. The pains soon went, my general health improved, too. and now I never felt better in my life." This shows the power of Mother Seigel's Syrup acting through the digestive system. This is the way to health, keep to it. THE 2/6 BOTTLE CONTAINS THREE TIMES AS MUCH AS THE 1/1 SIZE,
Barry Summer School. EDUCATIONAL HANDWORK. During the last decade new methods have been introduced into our system of education, the chief aim being to develop the brain through the medium of the hand. The industrial conditions of Tng- land are subject to great changes, Inl: to the rapid introduction of machinery, which supplants human labour, hence the necessity of training the hand and eye to a high state of efficiency :.o in- crease the adaptability of the worker- thrown out of employment. Gradually grammar and the dry bones of history are being superseded by educational handiwork based on sound, practical priciples. I The Glamorgan County Council a. n t) be congratulated on the part they are playing in this movement. One of th' most successful courses in educational handiwork has just been completed at Barry. The whole course under the directorship of Mr. A. Sutcliffe, or. ganiser of Handicraft Instruction to ihe Ccunty of Glamorgan. Mr. Sutclire's f'>1o-=' lIIo., at IN a as as readier under lierr Salomon at Sheffield and Manchester, has all contributed to the high standard of excellence attained by the course. The Nature Study Class was of excep- tional interest and merit. The plant, was examined, drawn and described, and I then excursions were made to study the plant in situ. The Clay Modelling Class taught .by Mr. J. Williams, Merthyr, was very in- teresting. Models were made of natural productions, such as the tomato, apple, and seaweed. Again the Nature Study was turned into account in the Brushwork Class taught by Mr. W. H. Lord, A.R.C.A. (Lond.). Some of the work done by members of this class displayed con- siderable artistic merit. His scheme for elementary schools was correlated witn geography, history, and science. The Class in Chalk Drawing afforded yet another opportunity of representing on a larger scale the subjects that had been drawn in detail in the Brush Class. Thus an object was taken in hand in the Nature Study Class and studied from a botanical point of view. It was then carefully drawn with an eye to detail and artistic effect in the Brushwork Class, enlarged in the Chalk Drawing- room, and finally modelled in clay, from which a plaster cast was made, which was a permanent record of the work done. Woodwork, an essential feature of all handwork, was under the tuition of Mr J. J. Davies, teacher of Educational Handwork for Glamorgan. Ladies and gentlemen worked at the benches. A class in wood carving also did excellent designs. Another striking feature of the whole course was metal work taught by Mr. H. C. Williams, Barry. The students made articles in tin, brass, iron, and steel. They worked at the forge and at the lathe. The work done by this class showed a finish and excellence that re- flected much credit on the efficiency of the teacher. A class in Swedish drill for girls was a decided success. It may be added that on alternate afternoons excursions were made to places of interest. Invitations were re- ceived to visit General Lee's residence and Fonmon Castle. The social side of the school was looked after by the Recre- ation Committee who arranged games, concerts, and whist drives. As a tribute to the work done by these classes, it is significant that more certificates were granted to Wales last year by the Asso- ciation of Educational Handwork than to the whole of England.
Striking Trecynon Evi- dence. One swallow does not make summer, nor does one striking cure prove a medi- cine to be good. But when evidence is piled on evidence, proof on proof, case upon case, all given to us by neighbours, we must believe. Mr Griffith O. Williams, 2, Union street, Trecynon, Aberdare, says I am a rock miner, and there is a lot of bending about in the work. Off and on for two years I was bothered with an aching back. It seemed as though a knife were being thrust into my back, so cutting were the pains. It was quite a hard matter for me to get my back straight after doing my work, and I found it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings, my joints were so stiff. I thought my trouble was caused through my kidneys being out of order, so I got some of Doan's backache kidney pills to try when I heard they were a special kidney medicine. The pills did me good from the first, ) and finally drove away all the pain, making me better in every way. I have received more benefit from Doan's pills than from any other medicine. (Signed) Griffith O. Williams." Doan's bpckache kidney. pills are two shillings and ninepence per box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and nine- pence.) Of all chemists and stores, or post free, direct from Foster-MeClellan Co., 3, Wells street, Oxford street, Lonclm, W. Doan's are the pills that cured Air Williams.
New Inn, Mountain Ash. CONVICTION WITHDRAWN. At the Merthyr Police Court on Thurs. day Mr F. P. Charles gave notice of appeal against the conviction of the licensee of the New Inn, Mountain Ash, at the local Police Court on Wednesday, for permitting drunkenness. The Stip- endiary said that since he gave his de- cision, fining defendant 10s and costs, he had been thinking the matter over and had decided to withdraw the fine and ask the defendant to pay costs only, giv- ing him the benefit of the doubt. De- fendant had kept a licensed house for over 20 years without conviction or complaint, and as it was not alleged by the police that drink had been supplied by the defendant to the man who was found drunk the penalty would be can. celled. Mr Charles intimated that in the cir- cumstances he would withdraw the notice of appeal.
Taff and Cynon Miners. OCEAN COLLIERY AND THE FEDERATION. The largest meeting ever held on the Cefnglas Mountain took place on Sun- day afternoon, when the men of the various collieries asembled to receive the report of the position with regard to non. U nioniam, and decide whether they should resume work on Monday morning or not. The Chairman said their decision would make a question of bread and cheese for 8,000 to 9,000 workmen, their wives and families. They were determined that everyone who benefited by the agreement secured to them by the Conciliation Board must pay for it. (Applause.) The only question was how was this to be secured. He thanked the women of Mertbyr Vale and Mountain Ash for the splendid work done by them during the past week. If it was not for their strenuous efforts they would not have achieved the success they had. (Applause.) They would not have met there on Sunday afternoon had they not felt they had a sacred and serious object to achieve. (Hear, hear.) Two months ago they found they had practically 2,000 non-Unionists in that district, and since then they had done well in reduc- ing that number to small proportions. Let it be clearly understood that non- Unionists were to be stamped out. They had asked the management of the col- lieries to assist them, but Messrs Nixon's had so far declined to do so, and now it behoved them to consider well what the decision was going to be. (Hear, hear.) The secretaries of the various lodges reported on the position, and their re- ports showed that in the whole district there were 21 non-Unionists and 93 in arrears, a few of the smaller collieries having a clean sheet. Councillor John Powell, the district secretary, briefly spoke. Mr T. Andre ws, of Treharris, speaking in the vernacular, said that at Treharris the Ocean Colliery company had met them freely and frankly, and recognis ing the fat that all the men's wages were regulated by the Conciliation Board agreement, to the cost of which the men had to pay, had agreed to sup- port the men's contention, and had given an undertaking that all non-Union- ists should either join the Federation or leave the colliery by the end of Septem- ber. (Applause.) They had further undertaken to allow the men's represent- atives to see every man who was em- ployed had a clear card, and to examine the employers books' in order to get the name of every man employed and to make a mark thereon to draw the atten- tion of the management to him if he was not a Unionist. (Hear, hear.) The manager had further undertaken that if the men at Merthyr Vale and Mountain Ash came out on strike he would employ no new men until that strike was over. (Applause.) A resolution was proposed and carried that the men appoint a deputation to see Mr Gray, the manager of Messrs Nixon's colliery, to inform him that the men were prepared to suspend their notices on condition that they be allowed to come out at the end of September if in the meantime they failed to get all the non-Unionists into the Federation. The deputation waited upon Mr Gray, and it was arranged that work be resum. ed on the Monday.
The Aberystwyth Fire Brigade was among the Brigades that visited the Aberdare Demonstration on Saturday. In the face of the combustible nature of the Town Council it was certainly a. great risk to dispense with the munici- pal extinguisher even for a brief time. Fortunately no outbreak occurred during its absence.

Mr Willie Hann was best man. and the nuptial knot was tied by the Rev William Hayton. vicartBof Knutsford (uncle of the bride. The bride arrived in church on the arm of her brother, Dr Robert Vachell de Acton Redwood, but was given away by her father. The five bridemaids were Miss B. de Acton Redwood, Miss Dorothy Wallace, Miss Hesse Wallace, Miss Enid Hayton, and Miss Norah Gregor. Motors played a prominent part in bringing the guests to and from the church. Among others present were Mr and Mrs E. M. Hann, sen., Mrs Forestier- Walker, Mr George Hann, Dr Wallace (Cardiff), Dr and Mrs William Sheen, Dr W. W. Jones and Mrs Jones (The Hollies, Merthyr,) Dr E. P. Evans, J.P., and Miss Evans, Mr E.

ECZEMA. An Engine Driver Tortured by Pain and Continual Irritation. The Result of Disordered Blood. Cured by Dr. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS Every man is liable to become run down and debilitated at times, and Mr George Latham, of 273, Stanhope road, Tyne Dock, was no exception to the rule. Being an engine driver of forty years' experience, the outlook was ser- ious until all danger of a collapse was dispelled by Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, which built up his blood and nerves, cured a violent attack of eczema, and made him an energetic worker again. I found myself gradually getting out of sorts," he explained, and I knew that my blood was poor. while my skin had lost its healthy colour. Then small pimples formed upon my legs, and the itching was so intense that for weeks I couldn't sleep at night. After a while, the pimples became more angry, and inflammation spread until large red blotches broke out all over my legs, making it painful for me to walk. My legs swelled, and at night became so hot and itching that I could not bear the bedclothes to touch me. Large layers of skin began to peel off. Of courss, I had medical advice, when my case was diagnosed as Eczema; but, though I tried everything I could think of, the inflammation only grew more intolerable, my blood was so stagnant impoverislaed. Nor did any outward application do any good. "After some time, I was recom- mended to try Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I did so, and, after the third box, the itching gradually subsided. I continued Dr Williams' Pink Pills, and the swellings decreased My appetite re- turned, and every Eczema followed a low state (1" heaUh. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured him. sore commenced to heal. I persevered with Dr Williams' Pink Pills when I felt the new, rich blood circulating through my veins this wonderful medi- cine has given me such health and vigour that I feel at least ten years younger.
