Chronic Constipation Cured. re Think of a man or woman, suffering for six long, weary years from severe constipation-never knowing any real relief from pain—gradually becoming MR A. HORWITZ. worse and worse until all hope of cure is abandoned. How Mr Horowitz—a tailoring presser of Leeds-suffered in this way, and when he obtained relief, is told in the interesting letter we publish here. 51, Macaulay street, Leeds. For more than six years I was troubled with severe constipation. I may say that I have been in England most of that time, and that, in spite of taking different remedies, I was unable to obtain either relief or cure until I took Iron-Ox Tablets. In my case the results have been truly wonderful, because the constipation had become chronic, and I was afraid that nothing would ever cure it. I had not been taking your tablets for long Mthen I obtained considerable relief, and at the time of writing I can only say the con- stipation has quite disappeared. Alto- gether I used four boxes of Iron-Ox Tablets. You can easily realise how grateful I am to your remedy for hav- ing removed the severe ailment which has troubled me for so long. I should like to tit e this opportun- ity of recommending Iron-Ox Tablets to everyone who is suffering from consti- pation. I know by experience that your Tablets can cure when other remedies fail." (Signed) A. HOROWITZ. Chronic constipation, such as Mr Horowitz suffered from, is bound to affect the general health. The system is not being properly eleansed, and poison is accumulating which upsets the digestion, worries the nerves, and clogs the brain. Now, a violent cathartic would not have helped Mr Horowitz. But Iron-Ox Tablets completely cured him because they so strengthen the bowels, so invigorated the liver, that these organs were able to resume their proper functions, and the trouble disappeared of its own accord. If you are afflicted with chronic or even oecasional consti- pation, take careful note of what Mr Horowitz says about the wonderfully beneficial action of Iron-Ox Tablets. They can do as much for you as they have done for him.

"The Right Hon- D. Lloyd George, whilst speaking at the Tabernacle, Lon- don, on one occasion, made use of a Welsh proverb. An enthusiastic hearer in the gallery shouted U Clywch, clywch," whereupon one of the deacons went up to him, placed his hand upon his shoulder, and said, 'Now, my friend, no swearing here, please. The foregoing appeared in one of our dailies last week. Really it is high time that this very ancient chestnut should have a rest now. It has done service to a good many purveyors of spicy tit-bits. and it has been varied and localised over and over again. Not long ago an Aber- dare rev. gentleman was the supposed swearer, and that was by no means the first time for the story to be trotted out for the delectation of newspaper readers. By all means let the fable now die a natural death, and R.I.P.
1 Till Men become Angels.' The "Forward," a weekly journal de- voted to Socialism and Trade Unionism, published in Glasgow, in its^ issue of Thursdajr, publishes a letter from Lord Balfour of Burleigh on Why I am fighting Socialism." Lord Balfour says the essence of any scheme for a working plan of Socialism is that a very large proportion of the earnings of each in- dividual are to be taken from him in the form of taxation, and presented to those who have not earned it. This obviously tends to equalise the condition of men who earn with the condition of men who do not earn, thus diminishing the incen- tive to earn, that in turn must diminish production, and must therefore increase prices, and that increase would naturally fall hardest on those who are least well off. The advance of civilisation ha,s in the past.. been practically guided wholly by the enterprise of individuals; enter- prise is guided very largely by the desire for wealth, and any scheme for the con- fiscation of private wealth must act ad- versely upon enterprise. Dealing with the charge that he killed the Bill for the feeding of school chil- dren, Lord Balfour says he is convinced that the evil put forward as the reason for the Bill is greatly exaggerated and that in many respects the precise form of remedy then proposed would have been worse than the disease. "I believe," says his Lordship, "it would on the balance have done greater harm than good to the, children them- selves, to their parents, to the mainten- ance of family life and family responsi- bility, and therefore to the best interests of the community at large." In con- clusion he save: —" Those who describe themselves as Socialists point out the evils of the present state of society. I for one will not deny those, evils, but I do affirm that Socialism will not remedy them, but will make them worse. Social- ists seem to me to forget that society is composed of individuals, and that where the character of the individual is imper- fect it would be impossible to have a state of society which is devoid of evils. We all feel—some perhaps more than others —where at the present time the shoe pinches, but a wholesale subversion of the existing structure of society will not remedy those evils, and if we depart from the watchwords of honesty, liberty, and independence we are bound to fail. In a sense we may be all Socialists now. but in the words of the late Bishop of London, 'Socialism cannot succeed till all men become angels, and then there will be no need of it.'
Drunkenness at Frecynon REV. CYNOG WILLIAMS' INDICT- MENT. At the evening service, held at Heoly- felin Baptist Church on Sunday evening the pastor, the Rev. W. Cynog Williams, took as his text Nehemiah 4, 14, Be not ye afraid of them; remember the Lord which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons and your daugh- ters, your wivee and your houses." Mr. Williams remarked that the nation, under the guidance and inspiration of Nehemiah, had undertaken to raise the walls of the temple and the morals of the people. The people were mocked and derided, but when their mockers saw that they were in earnest and that they had a mind to work, they opposed them with all their might. To-day their ob- ject as temperance workers was to heal the breaches and improve the people's morals. There was a time when a tem- pel ance enthusiast was regarded as soft in his head. However, during the last 4 years an enormous amount of temper- ance reform had been made in the Aber- dare Valley. Now they had the word of Sir H. C. Bannerman, the Premier of England, and Mr. Lloyd George, the Premier of Wales, that a Licensing Bill would be introduced in the next session, the provision of which would be to place the axe at the root of the Upas tree of drunkenness. Our nation spent a large aum of .money annually to protect our shores from invading foes, and at the same time allowed an enemy within its gratee to eat away its vital farts. For every tick of the clock Great Britain drank worth nearly tS of intoxicants. A nation which was so drink-sodden was rotten to the core. The drink evil stood in the way of every social reform. He was giad to see that the Labour members in the House of Commons were eo sound on this question. But he was surprised | that they did not concentrate the; r j efforts more against that worst form of capitalism—the brewers. Mr. H. G. Wells had written a glowing article de- | scribing an ideal Socialistic State. De- ] scribing the table fare of the people who « had been rescued from the slums, he j said that the best ciders of Hereford and the best wines and spirits available would be on their tables. But they could never abolish the slums while the public house existed. Take the unemployed again. The unemployables were far more numer- ous than the unemployed. The drink | traffic had been an industrious recruit- 1 ing sergeant for the ranks of the out of works. Take Old Age Pensions again. He was in perfect sympathy with Old Age Pensions. It was proposed to get a fund to secure old age pensions for toilers at 60 or 65 years of age. And yet the workers of this country spent a hundred million pounds on intoxicants! If the workers of this country drank no more than the workers of America they would possess a reserve fund of "66 million pounds for old age pensions. The drink traffic was the greatest hindrance to the coming of the Kingdom of God. The majority of the revival back-sliders had gone back bwing to the drink. Foreign missionaries complained that we were intoxicating more heathens than we con- verted. Great Britain placed in its treasury each year 36 million pounds, which was the price of blood. Really the high priests that declined the money from Judas's hands were animated with more principle than the legislators of Britain were. Publicans were permitted to be members of Christian churches. In America a publican had no more stand- ing in a church than a Cardiff brothel keeper would have. Again there were in the church a great number of people who drank. "Even members of this church are guilty of this sin," said ^the preacher, with increased emphasis. It is high time we should tell them, 'It must bo the church or the public-house; you must choose between the beerhouse bar and the communion table. It must be either the cup of the devil or the cup of blessing, God or Bacch-u-s.' Referring to the Clothing Clubs that existed in public-houses, Mr. Williams held that they clothed the prosperous publican and his wife while they stripped the poor bread-winner and his family of clothing and comfort. But apart from the cloth- ing and holiday clubs, friendly societies had their headquarters in these drinking dens. In a recent effort to withdraw one of these clubs from a public-house those who turned the balance in favour of its retention there were, strange to say, re- ligious people. Inasmuch as local churches were prepared to place rooms at the disposal of these societies, let them use all their efforts to draw them from the public houses. According to the pamphlet issued by the Rev. J. T. Rhys on The Enforcement of the Licensing Laws in Glamorgan," our county was the most drunken county in the land. Con- sequently it must be the most drunken county in -the world. When they con- sidered the disparity between the num- ber of persons convicted for drunkenness and the number of licensees prosecuted it was time that they should insist upon their police and other officers being like Caesar's wife, above suspicion in this matter. He was grieved to find that the beer-house was the head-quarters of so many football teams, also that gambling was rampant in connection with the play- ing of billiards, etc. The preacher de- plored the fact that drunkenness among women was greatly on the increase. Women in Heolvfelin had contracted the habit because they were driven to the public-house to fetch beer for their hus- bands. Mr. Williams concluded his ser- mon with an earnest and powerful appeal to all temperance workers to fight fear- lessly and vigorously the drink demon. The service was very well attended. The singing was soulful and hearty. Mrs. D. W. Price presided at the organ.
Dr Banks' Advice. EXCESSIVE TEA DRINKING. On Saturday evening, at the Public Hall, Trecynon, a most interesting and educative lecture was given by Dr. Isaac Banks on The human body, how it is built up, and the functions of its parts." In a very elaborate address, illustrated with a plethora of diagrams, and in a manner which was intelligible to an aud- ience of working men. Dr. Banks gave a minute description of the various or- gans in the human structure, their pro- perties and their functions. Intersected with these descriptions were several pieces of valuable advice, which, if acted upon, cannot fail to be of inestimable value to working men and their families. He mentioned the evil effects of excessive tea-drinking, a bad habit which women were especially addicted to. They in- variably took a cup of tea in the morn- ing with the male members of the family before the latter set out for the mine. Then if he were to pay a professional visit to the house about 11 he generally found them again drinking tea. At three o'clock they would again empty the tea urn, and about seven the process would be lepeated. Then before retiring for the night another dose of the essence of the Indian lear. would be indulged in. It was no wonder that indigestion was more rampant in Wales than in any otlie"!? land. If their wives should taunt them about their glass of beer or their pipe let them entreat the women to diminish their tea-drinking. The doctor said also that he was often called to houses in which the fresh air had been safely bar- ricaded out by means of closed doors and windows, and stuffed chimneys. How could a patient recover under such con- ditions? He wished he could convince people that fresh air never killed anyone. Referring to asthma, Dr. Bankes said that the underground worker was subject to what was generally known as miners' asthma." After a protracted period of underground toil the lungs were apt to become incapable of exhaling with ease the air which had been inhaled with no difficulty. If miners at the age of 40 to 45 began to experience a breathing diffi- eulty, it was ä symptom of asthmatic trouble, and he would advise, them to give up working underground-if that were practicable—when such a symptom manifested itself. The lecturer inci- dentally mentioned the question of pit top baths. He favoured the idea, and guaranteed that it would be a healthful boon to, the miners. It was urged against the method that it would render the per- son who underwent a bath liable to catch I cold. But he would venture to say that for each one who would contract a cold through the pithead system of bathing a hundred did so through the fireside bath. The lecture was intently listened to, and frequently applauded. The lantern was manipulated without a hitch by Mr. Martin Palmer. On the motion of Mr. W. R. Protheroe, Pare Uchaf, seconded by Councillor Tom Lewis, Dr. Bankes was cordially thanked. On the motion of the Doctor, seconded by Mr. J. Prowle, a similar compliment was paid to the chairman, Mr. Frank John.
Railway Smash at Cwm bach. Between 6 and ? o'clock on Monday morning last an alarming smash occurred on the G.W. Railway at a distance of about 20 yards from the Ynyscynon Sig- nal-box, Cwmbach. It happenecf owing to a goods train which was being driven towards the direction of Mountain Ash colliding with a shunting engine and waggons coming in the opposite direction. It seems that the signalman took it for gi anted that the small engine, which had been shunting, had gone off the main line to the single line, with the conse- quence that the larger engine, with sever- al covered waggons behind it, came with great force against it, and knocked, it off the rails. There was 6uch a conciission that even the larger engine was bent and precipitated into the ground. Its fun- nel and front part were knocked com- pletely off, and the rails underneath it were bent and twisted into every imagin- able form. The van which was attached to the shunting-engine was smashed into smithereens, the wheels being hidden completely amongst the debris. The other vans which followed behind also suffered considerable damage. The meet wonderful thing is that the drivers and stokers of both engines escaped unhurt. The spectacle which presented itself im- mediately after the collision was a weird one. To see piles of for the Christ- mas trade bundled on top of each other was remarkable. There were currants; valencias, gra pe.nuts, soap, tinned milk, and reading books, ladies' blouses and skirts, handkerchiefs, and tinned sheets mixed up with each other, and there was such a conglomeration of goods and iron splinters from the train that the exact tw amount of the damage was hardly dis- cernible. The news of the accident was aonveyed to Aberdare at once, and a break-down gang was soon on the spot to clear the rubbish. We glean later that the damaged engine belonged to the express goods train which was travelling from Neath to Cardiff, and the one it collided with was a banker engine which was kept at the siding to assist in shunting operations, etc. The express train was travelling at a rate of 50 miles an hour down the grad- ient. The .sound of the collision was dis- tinctly heard by some workmen over at Aberaman, who hurried to the spot soon after it occurred.

Nid yn unig arweiniai a dysgai ganu yn y daeoniaeth lie y trig, ond hefyd yn holl eglwyei a chapeli Dyffryn Aeron. Pa un ydyw y dosbarth mwyaf terfysg- lyd yn y dyddiau hyn, y "suffragettes" ai ynte myfyrwyr ein prif-athrofeydd ? Son am dwrw ac ymddygiadau. ajiweddus y Shoni-hois ar amgylchiadau neill- duol, gall boneddigesau (?) y wleidydd- iaeth newydd a "hooligans" Athrofa Aberystwyth eu maeddu yn rhwydd ddigon. Un arall o bregethwyr dawnus yr hen wlad wedi cael ei hud-ddenu dros y Clawdd. Cyfeirio yr ydym at y Parch. Penry Evans, Porth, yr hwn sydd yn myned i Scarborough, enw a bair i un feddwl am wyliau haf yn mherfeddion gauaf. Pregethwr ieuanc athrylithgar ydyw Penry. O nad ydyw lawn mor wreiddiol a'i dad dihafal mae lawn mor alluog. Deallwn fod Penry yn darlithio yn Soar, Aberdar, nos Fawrth neeaf, ac mai hwn fydd ei ymweliad olaf a'r lie cyn ei fyned i Scarborough.
