Mountain Ash Education Committee. On Tuesday, Mr. W. Lamburn in the chair. The other members present were: Mrs. W. G. Williams, Major F. N. Gray, J.P., Messrs. Thomas Jones, Capt. G. A. Evans, J.P., Bruce Jones, D. Rogers, Noah Bowles, T. W. Jones, J.P., Wm. Evans, E. Morris, William Davies, J. Powell, with Mr. Alfred Morgan (director), Mr. Salusbury Roberts (assistant director) and Mr W. H. Williams (architect). Miskin School-The Director and Architect reported that they had visit- ed Miskin Mixed School with regard to the complaint re bad light. They stated that on dull days the schools were rather dark, but no improvement could be made except by costly alter- ations, and they recommended that artificial light be used on dark days.— The recommendation was accepted. Schoolmaster's Application Mr. B. Tiley wrote that he suffered from facial paralyses, and asked for an extension of time, with pay. This was the first time he had made such an application in 30 years. He wished further to ex- plain that it was owing to a severe draught, caused by a broken window in school, that he became ill, and he was now obliged to undergo special treat- ment in Cardiff, which entailed great expense.—Mr. J. Powell said they must regretfully refuse the application. They had a rule not to pay any salary after the lapse of a certain period.—Mr T Jones said that as a matter of sen- timent he would like to grant the re- quest, but if they once opened the door it would be very difficult to close it.- Mr Powell moved, and Mr. Bruce Jones seconded, that the request be not gi anted.-Cari-ied. Canaan's "Application. "-The Secre. tary of Canaan Church, Miskin, wrote that the annual tea and concert was being held, and that they would require the use of the school-room on that day. [The schoolroom is b'eing used by the Education Committee for day school purposes.]—Mr. E. Morris moved that the application be granted.—The Direc- tor It is not exactly an application.— Mr. J. Powell I move a resolution in this form: "That they have our per- mission." (Laughter.).—This was car- i-le.d.-Major Gray remarked that a por- tion of the rent ought to be deducted, Half-Holiday -The Director reported that 14 schools had won the attendance half-holiday.—Mr. Thomas Jones asked whether there was a danger of undue pressure being brought to bear on children to attend school when they were not fit, in order to win the half- holiday. He had been given to under- stand that teachers prevailed on such children and promised that they should sit near the fire.-The Director said he had noticed certain children sitting near fires.—Mr. Bruce Jones hoped that the Director would keep his "weather eve" cpen. (Laughter.) Prosecution.- -It was resolved to take legal proceedings against certain par- ents for refusing to refund money ex- pended in providing meals for their children. "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau."—The Direc- tor said ho had received a letter asking the Committee to allow school-children to contribute pennies towards the memorial to the composers of Hen Wind fy Nhadau," viz., leu an ap Iago and his son.—Major Gray pointed out that there was a resolution on the hooks prohibiting anything of the kind.—The Committee resolved to take no action. Salaries --Rev. E. V. Tidmaii had a motion on the agenda "That the word 'untrained' be -deleted from the resolu- tion increasing the maximum salary of certificated male assistant teachers." Mr. Tidman was not present, and Mr. J. Powell suggested that it stand over for a fortnight.—Major Gray thought the resolution should be struck out, and that Mr. Tidman should put in a fresh notice of motion.—Ultimately it was decided to let the motion stand over until Mr Tidman would be present. York Street School—The Board of Education returned the plans of this proposed new school, and made various suggestions with the view of reducing the estimated expenditure, viz., L6,S50. The Board thought that the heating apparatus would provide adequate warmth without fire-places.—The Archi- tect _said that the estimated cost was £ 14 5s. od. per head of the accommoda- tion, which was not higher than the average school. The heating apparatus might be sufficient if worked properly, The deletion of fire-places would save £ 90.—It was resolved to retain the tireplaces, but to strike out staircase fencing. St. David's Day.—The Board of Edu- cation wrote enclosing suggestions for the celebration of St. David's Day at the schools.—The Director remarked that the committee's usual practice was to grant a holiday. This time the day | fell on a Saturday.—Major Gray: Then I propose they get a holiday that Saturday. (Laughter.) — Mr. Bruce Jones seconded.—No action was taken. Children's Act.—The Director suh- mitted a report giving particulars re- lating to the employment of school children in Mountain Ash and district. The number of boys employed were: Selling newspapers, 97; selling milk, 27; running errands, 157; lathering in barbers' shops 27; in miscellaneous em- ployments, 44; total, 352. Number of girls employed: Baby-minding, 100; for house-work, 73; running errands, 41; miscellaneous employments, 13; total, 227. The total number of girls and boys employed is 579. Enquiries made as to hours worked weekly show that 85 boys work 20 hours or more, and 109 boys work 10 hours and less than 20. The Director suggested that they limit the hours of employment of all school children on school days (or days when the school is open) to the hours between 7 and 8.30 in the morn- ings, and between 5 and 8 in the even- ings, and on Saturdays and other days when school is closed between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m., or between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., provided that boys employed in barbers' shops may be employed either between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., or between the hours of 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.—Major Gray asked if children de- livering newspapers would come under the heading of street traders. The Director replied that they did not.-M-r Rogers, who is himself a newsagent, spoke at some length on the question, and gave his experience of boys who sold newspapers. He rarely employed boys for more than 2t hours per day. This 2} would be* made up of about one hour in the morning and Ii hours in the evening. Instead of confining the morning hours to 7--8.30, he thought they might well make it 7-9.15, inas- rruch as the schools did not commence till 9.30. Morning work was very healthy for boys, provided they had an adequate breakfast. He had one boy who was inclined to be consumptive. The doctor asked the boy in sqhool what he was in the habit of doing outside school hours, and the boy replied that he was delivering newspapers. The doctor replied that that was the best j thing he could do, and as a matter of fact that boy was perfectly healthy There were other boys who were inclined to be delicate but who had got [ quite strong by open-air work. The Director admitted that some employ- I ments wero good for the boys, and de- livering and selling newspapers in the open-air was one of them. The point was that they should not overdo it "Major Gray asked how were they going to enforce the bvelaws. They would have to appoint a host of inspectors. H. moved that the recommendation of the Director be altered so as to read "No boy to sell newspapers except be- tween 7 a.m. and 9.15 a.m.; not after 8 p.m., and not during school hours. On Saturdays, the hours to be from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., or 2 p.m. to 9.30 p.m., or any 7i hours during the day."—This was adopted. R.C School-The Managers of this School had held a meeting when those present were Revs. H. Irvine, A. E. Sullivan, Mr W. Murphy. Mr P. Phelan. They asked the Education Committee to advertise for :in uncertificatf 1. teacher.—Agreed. N.U.T. Conference.

Protect your Child. This problem of infantile mortality is of national importance, though it would quickly be solved if every mother throughout the land would prepare for the various complaints which may at- tack her offspring at any moment by constantly keeping a bottle of Dr. Bow's Liniment at hand. Infant Mortality is enormously increased by the imprompti- tude of mothers in attacking first symp- toms of such ailments as Bronchitis, Croup, Whooping Cough, Measles. All these complaints and others to which children are liable can be immediately relieved and quickly cured by promptly applying Dr. Bow's Liniment. For nearly 80 years its curative qualities have been unrivalled, and no more con- vincing evidence of the success it achieves can be given than the fact that over 250,000 bottles are sold annually. This marvellous preparation owes its origin to the now celebrated Dr. Bow of Alnwick, who first made it for private use among his own patients. The fame of its healing virtue rapidly spread, however, and since that time it has been constantly used and recommended by doctors and nurses with unvarying suc- cess. It is the safest and cheapest remedy yet discovered for cold ailments, and no home should be without it. Don't risk your baby's life, get a bottle of Dr. Bow's Liniment at once, but be sure Dr. Bow's name and trade mark are on the label. Of all chemists 1/li and 2/6.

Letters to the Editor. ABERDARE FREE CHURCH COUNCIL. Sir,—Allow me to congratulate the above Council on their work in connec- tion with the recent boxing contest. Although not crowned' with success, they have instilled the younger mem- bers of the Churches with enthusiasm ror raising the moral tone of our town. It was a pleasure to see at both confer- ences so many young men as repre- sentatives from the churches. Plough on, success is sure to come. There are other evils in town which I hope the Council will take up. I trust that Churches will take up the matter of getting the Friendly Societies from the public-houses, and that we shall have a joint meeting of the Free Church Council and the Friendly Societies' Council, as suggested bv ir. Stephen Lloyd in your paper. Much good could be (loiie iii this direction.—I am, OBSERVER. HOUSES AND BYE LAWS AT YNYSYBWL. Mr. Editor,In your issue of the 8th inst. a correspondent from Ynysy- bwl named Mr. W. H. May, has given us as a firm of builders an unsolicited testimonial. Mr. May can be placed in the company of the two distinguished editors that lately appeared before the Marconi Committee at Westminster who refused to give the grounds of their accusations against Cabinet Min- isters. We have also appealed private- ly for Mr. May's evidence of the assist- ance given to us by the D.C. Surveyor at any time; but up to the time of writ- ing we have had no response, although we enclosed him a stamped addressed envelope for an answer. We will deal with Mr. May's volcanic eruption now, and shall take first of all the words. "That the firm has been represented at almost every meeting on the housing question." Let us assure Mr. May I that we have never been invited to nor attended a meeting 011 the housing question at Ynysybwl, except when it cropped up at an election. We arc building houses, perhaps somewhat slowly, and are content to allow Mr. May and those associated with him to talk about building, and the public may judge whether houses can be produced Iv. merely talking about them and criti- cising others. The facts concerning the plans of the houses in question are well known. Suffice it to say now that the plans and our report that we had com- menced building to avoid loss of time to our employees were in the hands of the Surveyor the same time. Let us again assure Mr. May that we never build, even a coal-house, without pre- paring a plan, and we are always very rarticular where we get materials for building. (2) "We have also lifted our hands in 'pious horror,' etc." \Ve con- fess that neither of the members of the firm know nothing of such an attitude, unless it is the attitude displayed by Mr May when he described himself s.hile giving spiritual ministrations to the inmates at the Pontypridd Work- house, and said that he felt as a man that had entered into some part of the legions below. Such a frame of mind is no doubt capable of going into a ttate of "pious horror." But such antics are absolutely foreign to the nature of the members of the firm. Mr May's questions about the architect. etc., betray too much ignorance to deal with them. but we may ask Mr. May a question. Can be prove that the firm has been obliged or compelled to pull clown any defective buildings erected by them at Ynvsybwl or anywhere else? The third portion of the famous docu- ment deals with our progress as build- ups. We will not wast> many words over it, but somehow we are glad that even Mr. May finds we are progressing s builders; and the improvement hv; taken place s'nce Ir. Ma.v and his friends have been discussing housing reform, and opened negotiations with the Garden Village Co. We have built ten villas, which are the improved houses referred to by Mr. May, and, as we have said before, we are character- ised as very slow in our motion as builders. Nevertheless there are the ten villas occupied now by their owners since Mr. May has commenced dis- cussing housing reform at Ynysybwl, and not a house has been commenced by this great Company yet. Ah, yes. we remember that we built twelve houses fo' the Ynvsybwl Building Club in the same period, and Mr. May was one of the members of the Club in question, andlives in his own house now. And it is so nice to have a house of his own and talk about providing houses for others. But, says someone, Mr. May was an official ab the colliery when the Building Club was formed. So it seems, and when tiie future historian will come to record the great part which the strenuous life of Mr. May ha., played he will enquire why he sacrificed the position of a responsible official at a Houvishing colliery; Let us help the historian and say that he was seized with a fit of "pious horror."—Yours, etc., WILLIAMS BROS.

Aberdare Empire. Great pains have been taken by the management of the above place this week to ensure a programme which is most unique. The place is parked nightly. A large and fine assortment of films have been procured, which are very attractive and instructive. The feature film for the week is "Lost Memory," in which narra- tive is depicted a motor-car crashing into a fallen tree* with the result that the occupants are thrown out. One of there escapes serious injury, but finds his memory a blank. There are three turns this week, each of which is a good shew ill itself. The chief plave is taken by Marie Jones in her lightning-change comedy playlet, ,f Wanted a Co-re- spondent." ller changes are indeed mar- vellously rapid. Her different cha (actors are wonderfully represented, and ill the part of office boy she causes much hilar- ity. Her impersonation of a Chelsea pen- sioner is splendid, and evokes vocifer- ous applauding. She also takes the role of a reverend gentleman, a grass widow. and a deaf housemaid. Roland and Mac are a pair of very clever comedy acro- bats, who introduce some very daring and clever tricks. A charming pair in I singing and dancing act are the Dainty Danes.

In August she confronted him with her uncle and her sister, and, in Welsh he answered he didn't know what to do, as he couldn't pay. On September 24th the; cli Il(I was born, and a letter was written to defendant, apprising him of the fact. —By Mr. Harold Lloyd: He had not at any time denied being the father of the child. She was quite aware when misconduct took place that he was a married man.—Lewis Evans, uncle of the plaintiff, stated that de- fendant came first to him as a haulier. Jane Jones, Aberdare, first informed him of his niece's condition. That was on the Tuesday following August Bank Holiday. 1912. Defendant was at din- ner, and when he came back he asked him: "What's this news I hear about you and Ann?'' Defendant began to cry. and said, "If she is in that condi- tion I can't pay." On Wednesday, the next day, witness heard Jones ask his niece: "A re you going to swear the child on mo?" The shop was closed at 30 the same day, and two hours later defendant came back again, and when h1 came in he began to ask about the dates. He was in a violent temper, and wanted to know if Ann's dates cor- respondeel with his dates. (Laughter.) William Jones, the defendant, examined by Mr. Lloyd, denied mis- conduct. All that the plaintiff had said was "a made-up story." and all tl111 the girl's uncle had said was a lot of lies. He had never admitted any- thilJg. n order of 3s. Gd. a week and costs was made.
