Football Notes. BY "SPECTATOR." ASSOCIATION. Aberdare v. Mardy. The above South Wales League fixture came off on Satur- day at the New Athletic Grounds. Both, clubs are new to the League, therefore it was not surprising to find that a large number of Mardy enthusiasts made the journey. The previous Saturday Mardy received a severe drubbing, Barry Dis- trict being the victors. On this occasion however the Rhonddaites had made a great alteration in the constitution of their team. Josh and Ted Woollacott, not forgetting our old friend the sharp- shooter-Charlie Grinnell, coupled with Moran and Hill, making up a strong at- tacking line. Another old Aberdare player in the visitors' ranks was Hugh Jones at full-back. On the other hand, Aberdare were unfortunate in being with- out the services of Billy Boulton, Has- keth, and H. M. Watkins, and what was worse still, they were only able to field ten men, there being no other registered player available. The referee was Mr. Perrin. The homesters started play upfield, and for a short period were compelled to act on the defensive. One of the Dar'ans cleared with a good kick, but Hugh Jones landed the ball to Josh Woollacotte, who diddled Yank Powell, the home left half, and from his transfer Grinnell sent in a strong shot which went over the bar. Gaining relief from the goal kick, Aber- dare went away, but were unable to got past the burly Hugh, although on one ùc- casion Tommy Daniel Jones came nt-ar enough to ec-oro, but contrary to his usual custom he sent in a very weak shot, which Ingram had no difficulty in clearing. The same player again came very near to do- ing the trick, the ball going just outside. The visitors, who were showing surpris- ing form, came away with a great rush, Goodwin and Parker at back having a warm time to keep out the attackers. J. Woollacotte, who for more than one reason was putting out all he knew, next made a very tricky man and beating the home half, tested Brownhill. The Dare goalkeeper only partially cleared, and Charlie Grinnell, had the honour of scor- ing the first goal. "T" The homesters were playing the better football, but the bustling tactics of the Mardy halves and backs proved very dis- conoerting to the play fcf the Dare n Four." However, they again invaded the Mardy territory, several corners being registered, one of which Holland sent across the goal mouth for Jack] Rooke to put the finishing touches to. Meanwhile the decisions of the referee were causing a great deal of merriment amongst the crowd, and not without a cause. On one occasion Tom Daniel, in attempting to kick for goal, sent the ball over the line. A goal kick should have resulted according to the rules, but the referee, much to the surprise of both elevens, awarded the homesters a corner kick. This, was all the scoring in the first half. < £ > <■> In the second portion the home captain elected to play one back and Parker came into the half-back line, Yank Powell tak- ing up his proper position at outride right. Again the referee was all at sea, pulling up Josh Woollacotte for offside play on several occasions when that player was clearly inside, but when he was palpably infringing the offside rule the whistler allowed him to go on. Pretty combination by the Dare front rank piacea the visiting goal in danger, and Jack Rooke scored from a brilliant shot giving Ingram 110 chance. Again the Mardy contingent came away aided by Hugh Jones and his huge kicks. Prom a melee in front of goal Josh Woollacotte handled the ball, but the referee awarded a penalty against Aberdare, being deaf to all appeals by the Darians. Hugh Jones took the kick, Brownhill saving brilliantly. The referee whistled for a re-kick owing to one of the Mardy fcr- wards getting in front of the kicker. Hugh Jones made no mistake with his second attempt, and thus were the mno- cent punished for the guilty. The home- sters now infused more dash into their play, and Jack Rooke and Powell combin- ing prettily, the latter sent in a splendid centre, but Parkes lost a glorious oppor- tunity by kicking over when well placed. Time was called with the home forwards attacking strongly. Final score: Aber- dare 2 goals, Mardy 2 goals. <V Mardy were fortunate in gaining a point, because on the actual play they were not in it. The Dare forwards dis- played any amount of combination. The half-back line was greatly disorganised, Mid the Mardy-five profited thereby. In Goodwin Aberdare possess a gem of a back, and with Boulton as a partner the defence ought to be as powerful as any in South Wales. Brownhill in goal again demonstrated to the public that he is a keeper of no mean order. Mardy ?.ie a side to be reckoned with, and ought to gain many points in the League Tourna- ment. A lot has been said about the hoot- ing of the referee, but this should not be taken too seriously, as the offenders were a lot of young schoolboys.
One of many in Aberdare. Whenever we are suffering from any trouble or illness, it is surprising to find how many of our neighbours have suf- fered in the same way. Then the feel- ing of loneliness goes. If also we hear from neighbours how they were able to overcome stheir trouble, there comes a sense of hopefulness, and we determine to follow the course which they pursued so successfully. This Aberdare story will help many of us. i( For a longtime I had very severe pains in my back," says Mrs S. Maid- ment, 19, Mary street, Aberdare. The I pains were so acute at times that I j could noi; stand upright; my joints were stiff; my legs and ankles were swollen, and seemed weak. It was dreadful for me to do a day's washing on account of the pain. But all that is altered now, because Doan's backache kidney pills have made me well again these pills have done me the world of good, and life is now a pleasure to me, whereas, before my cure, it seemed a burden. (Signed) S. Maid- ment." Doan's Backaehe 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. McClellan Co., 8, Wells street, Oxford street, London, W. Doan's are the pills that cured Mrs Maidment.
Think a Moment. Do not be scared into fearing that every pain in the back denotes kidney trouble. It is most probably due to Rheumatism or Lumbago and is easily curable by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Rheumatism frequently affects the kidneys, the secretion becomes scanty, is strongly acid, contains sediment and is of a high colour. These misleading symptoms soon vanish when Rheumatism is driven from the blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act directly on the blood they purify and strengrnen it, thus curing Rheuma- tism, Lum-bago, Sciatica, and Pains in the Back, as well as Anaemia, and other Blood Disorders. His Rheumatism Cured. "Last Winter I was seized with sharp pains across my back, said Mr. William Hodgson, of 27, Water-street, Accrington. I could net, in spite of many medicines tried, shake off the attack. I fell away, all strength left me and I could not eat. My suffering's grew unbearable and culmi- nated in Acute Rheumatism in my back, legs and feet. I was then persuaded to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I did so, and they completely cured me. My strength returned. Every ache and pain left me, my back felt easy and strong and I don't expect ever to have that weakness or Rheumatism again."

BY « :'UlJIED OAF." Glamorgan T ",llP. Mountain Ash v. Maes teg. This •••••» the match played a (, by the Old Firm" this season, and came off at the Mountain Ash Enclosure on Saturday.last before a decent attend- ance. The Aberpennar fifteen included tho majority of last year's players who turned cut in good form, and the team was strengthened by the inclusion of D. B. Davies, a three-quarter of nota who played for Maesteg and afterwards for Merthyr. He turned out on the wing. In the absence of Lloyd Jones, the team's centre, a new man in the person of E. Jones, from Merthyr Vaie, was given a trial. The home forwards were led by P.C. Dick Thomas, the new captain, whilst the visitors also brought over ft strong combination with the popular Jack Roberts at full-back. Mr. Tom England, of Newport, had charge of the toams. < £ The opening stages saw the forwards fighting hard for possession, and in the tight mauls and in the loose work the Aberpennar men seemed to hold a little advantage. However, after a great deal of further scrummaging Wyndham Jones made a run that enabled him to outpace his Rhondda opponents, and to transfer the oval to Dai Davies; but Roberts came in and pushed the new Mount winger into touch. Mountain Ash seemed to have the best of matters afterwards, but the fine work of Jack Roberts saved the Maesteg line from being crossed on sever- al occas ons. <?- <?> -=s=- With the skill that has characterised the work of the Old Firm's forwards in the past, they turned defence into at- tack, and by dint of hard work reached the Maesteg line where the heroic Dick Thomas, the skipper, raised a great cheer in crossing over with the first try of the season, and Johnny Thomas added the extra points. Not to be outdone, the Rhondda forwards tried to have a bit of their own back, but this only served to arouse the fighting qualities of the Mount men. Half-time score:—Mountain Ash, 1 goal; Maesteg, nil. <5> <5> The homesters on the resumption of the proceedings continually harrassed the Maesteg defenders. Aided by the superb dribbling of their forwards, the Mount halves and backs had a series of splen- didly timed passing movements, but here the Maesteg backs did some good taok- ling. Yet Jack Thomas, the home cus- todian, also missed a certain dropped goal by only a few -'nches. D. B. on the day's form was a success, and ought to prove a great acquisition to the Mount team this season. He scored two splen- did tries, and one of these was converted. So the Old Firm succeeded in winning their first match, and a League one at that, by a decent margin. Surely, the team will make a good bid for the Cup this year. Final score:—Mountain Ash, 2 goals, 1 try; Maesteg, nil.
ASSOCIATION. Aberaman Excelsiors v. Aberdare Cres- cents. The first match between these two popular teams this season was played at Michael's Field on Saturday last before a good attendance. Unfortunately, the Excelsiors were minus Bennett, their popular goalman, as well as a few of the new men who had signed Con n for the team. The Crescents, on the other hand, were strengthened by the inclusion of Ernie Harper at centre-forward, who had formerly, played for the Excehiors, whilst Rees John, late of the Gadlya Rovers, figured at half-back, and George Walker resumed his old position in the team by the side of Joe Lewis at full-back. The game resulted in the Crescents obtaining their first victory this season, by the score of 5 goals to 1. :1?- 3?" The scorera were George King, the cap- tain, D. "Cox" Williams (2), Rees John, and Harper for the winners, whilst Tom- my Probert registered the Excels-ors' goal. Ernie Harper made a favourable impression at centre forward for the Cres- cents, whilst Rees John and Walker also went through a good deal of work. For the Excelsiors, Dai Tom Williams was easily the best man. Probert and Finn were also prominent. The true test will take place when the teams will be evenly balanced with Bennett in charge of the goal for the Excelsiors. < £ > Trecynon Windsors v. Aberaman Wan- derers. Played at the Park oil Saturday last. The Windsors played their cus- tomary eleven whilst the Aberaman "Nomads" also seemed to possess a strong team—on paper! The game was wholly in favour of the Heolyfelm men, who veritably played rings around their opponents and scored 4 goals to nil with ease." The scorers were Jim Bowen (2), Gardener, and Jordan. Harry Davies, the Windsors' custodian, was sleeping half his time, and he hardly had a shot to clear,—lucky bov But Harry Rees, the Wanderers' goalman, never had such an exeitillg time in his life, and, I must say, that he acquitted himself very cre- ditably. The Wanderers would do well to order a new set of forwards and halves, and I should like to see them play the Cwmaman Juniors before long. The Windsors will play Abernant next Satur- day, also at the Park. Up-to-date the Tiecynonites" record is very nice indeed, they having scored 17 goals for and only 1 against. Buck up, Windsors! <7 <7 <9- Hirwain is now in a position to boast of a really smart organization who have en- listed the services of several players of note including a few Aberamanites who need no introduction. The duty's head- quarters are at the Bee Hive, and the playing ground is a field near the Rhigos Road. The team have already joined tie local league. The team's secretary is Mr J. John, of 12, Merthyr-road.—On Satur- day last the team entertained the Mer- thyr Lilywhites, when the issue ended in favour of the Hirwainites by the score of 3 goals to nil. The scorers were Harrv Southall, D. Davies, and W. Williams. Next Saturday Hirwain will journey to the Cwmbach Enclosure. Cwmbach United v. Aberaman Stars. This match took place at the Ynyscynon Grounds on the same day. Both si' es played several new men, who hailed from the locality and from the Bristol district. The players lined out under the charge of Mr. W. Kellow in the following order: Cwmbach United: Goal, J. Davies; backs, Fred Rees and Moss Price; halves, Ivor Edwards, Pugh, and Dan David; forwards, George Davies, Rosser, W. R. Jones, Leonard Ford, and J. M. Shelby James. Aberaman Stars: Goal, E. Wrentmore; backs, J. Williams and W. Mason; halves, Dai Bowen, Guest, and Ike Harris; forwards, Angel, W. Wil- liams, C. Williams, Turner, and Henndy. <3> Cwmbach started operations down the field, and after a few of the stereotyped exchanges, play became very even. The Stars, however, rallied, and Guest, their new Bristolian centre-half, set his for- wards on the attack, but the Cwmbach backs effected a. few good clearances. Eventually Guest essayed some good shots at goal, and ultimately succeeded in finding the net with a "daisy cutter* from long range. The Cwmbach forwards made a few incursions into the Stars' territory, but the defensive powers of Guest, Bowen, and Billy Mason told its own tale, and nothing further was scored at the interval. Half-time score: Aber- aman Stars, 1 goal; Cwmbach, nil. In the second half Williams restarted for the Stars, and transferred to Henndy, who made a grand opening from a cross shot, but Moss Price and Pugh cleared alternately. Pugh and IvOr Edwards subsequently returned the ball to m'idfield only to be returned by Guest who sent to Henndy, and the latter forced a corner. However, the resulting kick proved futile, as the goalman fisted the ball over the bar. Then the Stars' forwards be- came aggressive once more, and Charlie Williams and Henndy severely tested the Cwmbach goalman with some dangerous shots. The Stars maintained the pres- sure, and Noah Turner succeeded in add- ing goal No. 2. A few minutes later Angel gave Charlie Williams the change to score the third goal for his side. Cwm- bach attacked hotly, but Wrentmore was found safe and the Aberaman backs proved equal to the occasion. Final score: Aberaman Stars, 3 goals; Cwm- bach United, nil. *3> Guest was the finest player on the, field, and knew his work to perfection. The Stars also have an acquisition m the clever little Angel on the right wing. Henndy and C. Williams were also pro- minent. The team have captured a regu- lar Tartar in the person of Billy Mason, who with Dai Bowen ought to make things hum. For Cwmbach, Pugh, Mass Price, Rosser, and W. Rees Jones were about the best. Of course, Cwmbach can do better than they did last Saturday, but, on the day's form, the Stars were easily their superiors. «?> 000- The Stars' trainer is the popular Joe Wrentmore, whilst the headquarters are at the Prince of Wales Hotel. Mr. Tom Bowen is the able secretary. On Thursday last the Aberdare Thurs- day Juniors' Eleven journeyed to Tylo.es- town, where they encountered the local n;idweekers' eleven. The Dare boys gave those of the Rhondda an exhibition of the way the game is played here, and finally emerged the winners by 5 goals to 1. The scorers were X, inlyn Evans (2), Bray-shaw, D Davies, i and Welsh, whilst Emrys Thomas netted the solitary goal for the Tylorstown team.
A THRILLING STORY. A Child's Dangerous Fall. I The terrible risks undergone by the little ones in their struggle for existence seem to grow greater, but whatever the danger they usually come up smiling and the following thrilling story of a little girl's terrible fall. and the ultimate recovery with the aid of Dr Cassell's Tablets aptly illustrates what we say. Mr James Ward Shillito, of 2, Good Hope Row, Pontefract road, Normanton, writes :—"My little girl, Lilian, fell out of a perambulator when she was about two years old and developed fits, which took away all use from one side. We took her to all the doctors around, and to the hospital, where they diagnosed her case as Paralysis, but could do her no good. This went on for four years. She was nearly helpless and quite un. able to walk, or even to stand. Reading about the wonderful cures effected by Dr Cabell's Tablets in similar cases, we tried them, and the first bottle put her on her feet, and now she is quite well and has had' no return of her terrible trouble." Let all sufferers follow the example of Mr Shillito. at once invest 10 £ d. in a box of Dr Cassell's Tablets, and obtain a guaranteed cure for children's weak- nesses, thinness, decline, nerve trouble, stomach and kidney disorders, and all kindred ailments. Any chemist can supply them.
Cuttings Educational. TEACHERS COUNCIL IN CONFER- ENCE. Three very important matters affect- ing children, teachers, and ratepayers, were discussed by the National Union of the Teachers of Wales and Monmouth at the Council meeting in Shrewsbury under the presidency of Mr. Tom John, M.A. 1. The inadequate staffing of primary schools. 2. The formation of definite scales of salaries by the different local authorities. 3. The necessity of creating directly elected authorities for the administration of all grades of education. The Council deemed them of such importance as to justify their making arrangements for a general conference of Welsh teachers to be held at Cardiff before the termination of this year. The financial disadvantages of the new regulations concerning Secondary Schools in Wales were strongly criticised and condemned, and the matter was thought to be of sufficient importance to the wel- fare of secondary education as to call upon the executive of the N.U.T. to deal with it as one of expediency and urgency. PAST AND PRESENT STAFFING.—A COMPARISON. Great changes have taken place in the, staffing of primary schools since 1870, ehanges undoubtedly for the better, yet in point of numbers and efficiency the present condition could be improved again. According to figures supplied by Lord Stanley of Alderly, in 1870, each teacher represented one hundred and seven children, in 1880 ninety-four, in 1890 six-five, in 1900 fifty, in 1905 forty- three, and now it is estimated to be forty-two children to each teacher. Further, th;s number i'! to be reduced, for the Board of Education contemplate fixing thirty for each teacher. This will necessitate an increase of over fifty' thousand teachers. Enormous strides and changes are yet absolutely indis- pensable if the future efficiency and wel- fare of the rising generation be con- sidered. How to meet this demand with- out resorting to the system of inferior teachers is a, problem the etate and edu- cational authorities have yet to work out. This matter was considered by the, TRADE UNION CONGRESS AT BATH a week or so back, and in Resolution VI. it stated-H That the best intellectual and technical training be provided for the teachers of the children, that each educational district shall be required to train the number of pupil teachers de- manded by local needs and to establish Training Colleges, preferably in connec- tion with Universities or University Col- leges." National systems of education demanded adequate facilities and ade- quate accommodation. At present, as far a.s the primary schools were concerned, they had neither. Resolution VII.— That the provision of educational buildings and facilities be obligatory upon the local authorities who shall al- ways retain administrative control of the buildings and facilities so provided," is an admirable one, and were it possi- ble to get a combination of three or more of the adjoining districts the problem of the scarcity of teachers would be solved. Aberdare, Mountain Ash, and Pontypridd amalgamated would be able to provide students and buildings suitable for a Training College second to none. We are glad to note that some of our Coun- cillors are moving in the matter. FRE E, SECONDARY EDUCATION. At the same Congress the following- was unanimously passed: —" That this Con- gress most'emphatically protests against the class prejudice displayed and anti- democratic policy pursued by the Second- ary School Branch of the Board of Edu- cation, and against the action of Local Committees in being parties to the rais- ing of Secondary School fees, and propos- ing to abolish the payment of Pupil Teachers as a policy designed to close the door of the teaching profession against the working man's child; and we demand that the highest and most effi- cient form of Secondary Education be free and available to all children capable of taking advantage of it." The address of Mr. Marshal Jackman, ex-president of the N.U.T., which was noticed in our .d columns a few, weeks back, has evidently been of good service to the cause of edu- cation. A WARNING BE NATURE STUDY (P). "The Teacher," referring to nature study which is just now running like a disease through our Elementary Schools, and the consequential rivalry of the col- lecting, cataloguing, and destroying man- ia, says that there is no love of nature in the method, and is absolutely valueless as a means of developing the child's powers of observation and love of nature. The writer preferred the method medium, the oldest of all professions—gardening. In this all the advantages of entomology and botany are included, with the de- struction only of those which are harm- ful, and love of creature and plant is the first and abiding essential. Here every phase of nature's working must be considered and understood-development.. habitat, and requirements demanding a knowledge far wider and far more use- ful than that which traces a flower through sub-kingdom, genus, and species, or a beetle by the number of its joints. The Board of Education and Local Authorities would be taking a wise step, especially in the towns, in encouraging the setting apart of ALLOTMENTS FOR THE! USE OF CHILDREN in the Elementary Schools, where at least a two years' course would be given in gardening towards which the Board of Education's grants might be largely in- creased. Small plots are now under cul- ture in some schools in the district, and were it not that we might be accused of advertising we would mention the schools. As yet there is no eystemized or methodical arrangement made be- tween head teachers and committees. The new and wise departure lies at the door of the head teachers, and the ex- penses come from their pockets. It should not be so. Mountain Ash and Aberdare would do well to follow the lead of Barry people who intend utilizing the contiguous land by their new schools for practical lessons to the children in hor- ticulture. ESPERANTO. From horticulture to esperanto is a long step. The Southport Educational Committee are going to experiment, and are about to establish classes for the study of Esperanto. If a sufficient num- ber of authorities gave this subject a trial the movement might lead to some- thing good, despite the adverse criticism and strong rebuffs it has received. To a Dic-Shon-Dafydd Welshman Esperanto would be a boon. The following (for which there is no prize) has just been handed in:- There once was a Welshman named lanto Whose strong forte was Esperanto, To London he went, From there he was sent We are waiting for the last Imel
