Stomach-Headaches, Those throbbing, piercing head- aches, which hinder you in your work and make life hardly worth the liv- ing, are often due to some derange- ment of the digestive system. It is well to remember that indigestion does cause headaches, so does liver trouble and constipation. An occa- sional dose of Mother Seigel's Syrup, the famous herbal remedy, so regu- lates and tones up the stomach, liver, and bowels, that puch distressing complaints as bilious or stomach headaches, acidity, flatulence, pains after eating, and languor, become al- most impossible. You can take Mother Seigel's Syrup in perfect con- fidence, because in the last forty years tens of thousands of people nave found that it really does give them good health by banishing and preventing stomach and liver troubles.
Aberdare Bankruptcy Court. On Friday, July 18th, before Mr. Rees Williams, registrar, and Mr. Ellis Owen, official receiver. Milkvendor's Difficulties. In the matter of John Arnold, formerly milk vendor at Duffryn Dare Farm, Aberdare, whose first examin- ation took place on May 9, 1913, in reply to the Official Receiver, debtor stated he was too ill to attend the last public examination. He was 43 or 44 years of age, and a native of Okehamp- ton. He knew in December, 1912, that he had not sufficient property to pay his debts. His book debts were £40. He was in partnership with a man named Dawes in South Mimms. He didn't know whether there were any liabilities on that business. They kept no books of any description. There were no profits from that business. He was arrested shortly after coming to Aberdare and taken to London, in re- ference to a waggon obtained from a London waggon builder. The magis- trates dismissed the case. He didn't get any benefit from the waggon. In April, 1912, he entered into an agree- ment with Mr. D. R. Llewelyn to take over the Duffryn Dare Farm and cows ar- a rent of £ 2 per week. He borrowed t40 from his wife to commence business in Aberdare. Her mother died and left her money. He was at Duffryn Dare Farm for 12 months, and then opened a dairy on the Gadlys. He sold the book debts to Mr. Sheraton and the horse, harness and dairy utensils for E40. Out of that money he paid R20 to Mr. Lewis on a judgment. He gave his wife t20 who paid JE3 9s. as rent of the Gadlys Shop. He paid money to his wife because his other creditors were not pressing him. He admitted that there were no documents or accounts showing a real statement of his affairs. When he commenced at Duffryn Dare Farm he was insolvent. His average takings were about £ 10 per week. When the cows were dry he bought milk from the Wilts Dairy Co. O.R. How do you account for buying kl2 worth of milk per week from the Wilts Co.? Debtor: I was selling at a loss, and got no profits, like every other dairyman in the Aberdare Valley. Continuing, debtor thought that the business was worth £ 100. O.R. Do you think that anyone would give you 4;100 for a busines's on which you admit you were getting no profit ? Debtor: I'm still of opinion that the business is worth it, because people would only look at the amount of milk I was selling. Continuing, debtor said he hadn't any invoice or receipts. He had de- stroyed them. He couldn't make a proper statement of accounts. The book that Mr. Sheraton had would show his cash takings and credit. O.R. "Wt^rnust have that book. Debtor, continuing, stated that he had bought 11 cows for £ 160, and had di ring that period sold 10 cows for 1;101. He sold seven cows belonging to Mr. D. R. Llewelvn. He had at one and the same time 14 or 15 cows. He admitted that he was under an agree- ment not to sell any cows, but he wrote to Mr. Llewelyn for permission. He was of opinion that the cows he handed back to Mr. Llewelyn were more valu- able than those he received from him. He was n >n aware that 8 of those cows were sold &jr £ 75. When he gave an order for *iilk from the Wilts Co. it was on a apei, with Mr. D. R. Ilew- elyn's nanv on. His attention was called to that by Mr. Llewelyn. He would swear lie had no object in using that note paper. He should have paid the Wilts Co. every week. He oved thsm £ 148 from Nov. 16, 1912, to Feb. 8, 1913. He only paid them £ 19 during the whole of that transaction. He didn't know that the Wilts Co. thought that they were dealing with Mr. Llewelyn. He bought milk at 1./3 per gallon, and sold some of it whole- sale to Mr. Jones, Cwmdare, at Is. a gallon. His total deficiency was £ 226. He had been sued in Aberdare Court four times. He sold his milk barrow to I" Mr. Davies, grocer, Aberaman, for 30s. The causes of his failure were bad debts,, strikes and the hardship of his agreement. His losses during the strike were R10 to R20. His losses on bad seasons he couldn't state. His losses on sale of cows was £ 70. He had not been drinking heavily, but he admitted having neglected his business. He admitted doing a little betting, but he never lost. He was in pocket to the extent of £ 10 or £20. He won over £ 60 on Eton Boy. He had made scores of bets during last year. He knew in December, 1912, that if he had sold all his possessions he would not have had sufficient to pay his creditors. He sold one good cow to Mr. John Lewis foi zC17 10s. He bought afterwards three cows for t23. His wife had offered the Official Receiver £ 10 by instalments to repay the amount she had received from debtor. His relatives were willing to advance him money to help him to pay 5a. in the £ The further examination was ad- journed for the production of Shera- ton's book and to amend the deficiency account.
Railwaymen's Church Parade. At St. Elvan's Church, Aberdare, on Sunday afternoon the annual parade of the National Union of Railwavmen took place. Headed by the Cvnon Val- Band (conductor, Mr. J. Manley), a procession was made through the prin- cipal streets to the Park and back to the Church. The Rev. Dr. Green took the service. An excellent sermon was preached by the Rev. J. Sinnett Jones, M.A., Vicar of Mountain Ash, from Romans xii., 11. In the course of his sermon the preacher said that the text summed up the general aim of the Christian's life. St. Paul found great difficulty in contemplating the lives of professing Christians. It was most difficult to be religious in the world to-dav. The increasing stress of indus- trialism made it more and more difficult for the working man to be fervent in spirit. Rest was a vital necessity to the body, mind and spirit of man, and with so much Sunday labour it was almost impossible for the working man to en- joy his Sunday rest. Oh! that the mas- ters would consider that the men had souls to save, and so reduce Sunday labour to a minimum point. Religion was not a duty, but the duty of every man. God must be brought into their lives, for they prayed, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Religion consisted not so much in doing sacred acts, but doing secular acts from sacred motives. We should, continued the preacher, carry our religion into our work, and so spiritualise what was material, for no life was a Christian one which refused the opportunities God gave. Christianity would never be played out. They had an opportunity that afternoon of giving in support of God's little orphans, and each giver would receive the Master's benediction. Li conclusion the rev. gentleman paid a glowing tribute to the work done by the National Union of Railwaymen, and earnestly prayed that their funds would always be amply provided for, and that the widows and orphans would never feel the pinch of want. "Be fervent in spirit, and let your trust" in God lead you to ever-increasing devotedness to His service" were his concluding words. The sacred edifice was well filled with members of the National Union of Railwaymen, Ambulance Corps, Aber- dare Fire Brigade, Church Lads' Bri- gade, Boy Scouts, and the Women's Guild. The service was choral, Mr. R. E. Pegge presiding at the organ. At the close of the service a collection was made on behalf of the Widows and Or- phans Fund of the N.U.R. In the procession the National Re- serve was well represented. Over three hundred ex-service men turned out. The men looked very smart, wearing their medals, decorations, and N.R. badges. In command were Sergt. Major F. W. Johns, Capt. R. H. Evans, Sergt. Thomas Evans, and Mr. J. Mac- Cormack. Permission for parade had been obtained from Colonel Command- ant A. Pearson. The collection on behalf of the fund realised £ 3 7s. 4d.

Herthyr Board of Guardians. ——— On Saturday, Mr. John Lloyd in the chair. The other members present were: Mrs. A. N. Jenkins, Mrs. M. Richards, Miss Hettie Jones, Mrs. H. E. Wills, Mrs. M. T. Williams, Mrs. M. A. Edmunds, Revs. A. E. Sutherland, Ll. M. Williams, W. A. Jones, Messrs. David Jones (Hirwain), T. D. Williams, Meth Davies, John Hughes, Rees liees, Tom Morgan, D. J. Phillips. Evan Davies, Samuel Davies, Staffron Bol- well, John Davies, C. Fenwick, David Jones (Dowlais), Henry Evans, Patrick j Mansfield, Henry Owen, Samuel Thomas, T. T. Jenkins, Wm. Jones, Ed- win Thomas, John Harris, D. J. Davies, Wm. Davies, Joseph Price, Morgan Thomas. Roger Vaughan, with Mr. Frank T. James (clerk) and Mr. Jones 1 (assistant clerk). Relief to Vagrants. The Clerk submitted a scheme deal- ing with a new way ticket system oi relief to vagrants. On the motion of the Rector, second- ed by Mrs. Richards, the scheme was approved of. Penalties Never imposed. It was reported that the contractoi responsible for the fencing near the Pontsarn Sanatorium had now com- pleted his work, and a question was raised as to whether the Guardians should avail themselves of the penalty clause, inasmuch as the contract had not been finished within the specified time. Mr. T. T. Jenkins remarked that this would be a new departure, because the Board had never been in the habit of enforcing the clause referred to. Rector: It would be most absurd for as to do so, and I move that we in- struct the architect to issue his final certificate. Mr. C. Fenwiek seconded. Mr. Meth Davies said that the pen- alty clause had been threatened in a certain case before, but the members were canvassed and they dropped it. "I was canvassed myself," added Mr. Davies. The Rector's motion was carried. In a Deplorable State. The Chairman said that he, with two or three other members, had visited the Infirmary grounds last week. The work thut had been ordered to be per- formed had not yet been commenced, and the ground outside the Infirmary was in a deplorable state. The master and other officers were greatly incon- venienced in carrying out their work owing to that state of affairs. Mr. Meth Davies remarked that it was useless inserting the penalty clause in contracts, because the Guardians never imposed the penalty, and the contractors were aware of this. Mr. T. T. Jenkins said it was time to make a new start and carry out the \arious clauses. The Rector differed from the Chair- man, and added that the place was in the pink of condition. Why make such a fuss about it? Finally a small committee was ap- 1 pointed to consider the matter. Cottage Homes, Llwydcoed. i Mr. Meth Davies reminded the Board that the work of erecting the adminis- trative block of the Llwydcoed Cottage Homes had not been begun. He pro- posed that they write to the contractor stating that if the work was not pro- ceeded with at once the contract would be cancelled. He wished- to apply this to all ofner contracts which had been signed by various builders and where operations had not started, The motion was adopted. Heavy Overdrafts at the Bank. Mr. D. Jones (Dowlais), Chairman of the Finance Committe, drew the atten- tion of the Board to the fact that £ 250 was due to Bank for interest on over- drafts. This was because the overseers in the various parishes constituting the Union had not paid their dues. There was a balance due from the various parishes at present of £ 20,000. The Clerk explained that Aberdare had paid their first call of £ 7.798; Gelli- gaer still owed t465 on the first call. The second call on Aberdare had now been made, and the sum expected was £ 7,797. Of this £ 2,000 had l>een paid. Gelligaer had paid nothing out of £ 11,065. Pendervn had paicl £ 350 out of t700, and Rhigos and Vaynor had paid nothing. If all those towns paid np there would be a credit balance in the Bank. Rector: The overseers ought to be made to pay the interest to the Bank. Mr. W. Davies (Rhigos Ward) said it was all very well to blame the over- seers, but they should remember that in the Yaynor and Rhigos district the rate was divided into two instalments for the convenience of ratepayers. The amount due for April—June quarter had already been paid, and it was un- | fair to ask them to pay immediately what was due for the July—Sept. quar- ter. | Mr. C. Fenwick observed that Gelli- gaer Parish were always considerably behind the other parishes. So far as Merthyr was concerned, the instalments were paid periodically. Mr. Henry Owen: If we press the overseers, the collectors will press the ratepayers. Mr. Meth Davies asked how were they going to meet their liability in the Bank? That was the question. The payment of this huge interest would soon mean a Id. rate, and Id. increase in rates would mean Is. a month more rent for the poor workmen. Chairman: No, no. You should be made to prove that. Mr. Meth Davies: You are speaking of Merthyr; I live in another street. (Laughter.) No action was taken. Building Trades. A deputation representing the work- men in the building trade appeared be- fore the Board, and asked them to ad- here to the clauses which were at present inserted in contracts, viz., that trader unionists only must be employed, and that trade union rate of wages must be paid. The members of the deputation were Mr. Lawrence, Merthyr, and Mr. Thos. Lewis, Aberdare, both of whom ad- dressed the Board and answered ques- tions. Porthcawl Rest. The Aberdare Relief Committee re- commended that the following be grant- ed two tickets for the Porthcawl Rest: Daniel Davies, 17 Henry Street, Aber- aman; Jemima Davies, 17 Henry St., Aberaman, and Thomas Davies, 9 Rose Row, Cwmbach. During Illness. The Finance Committee reported that they had considered the question of the payment of salaries to officers during sickness and recommended that the full salary be paid for the first month, half salary the second month, and the case to be considered after the end of the second month. Contract Agreement. The committeee recommended that the consideration of the complaints of the Master Builders' Association be de- ferred until a reply is received from the Local Government Board as to whether the insertion of the Trade Union clause is legal or not? Officers' Salaries (Clerk). The committee recommended that a special meeting of this committee be held on 22nd July to consider the ap- plication of the Clerk for an increase in salary. The committee considered the application of Mr. B. J. Evans, clerk in Collector's Office, to have his scale of salary revised, and recommended that his salary be increased from £ 70 to £ 90 per annum, and subsequently increased by annual increments of tIO to the maximum of £ 110 per annum. „ Abercwmboi Water and Milk Supply. The Children's Homes Committee re- ported :— Water Supply: The Superintendent reported that the Abercwmboi Cottage Homes were being very inefficiently sup- plied with water, and for several days scarcely any water had passed into the cisterns, and nearly all the water used in the Homes had to be carried from houses in the main road by the chil- dren.—The committee recommend that the Clerk be directed to write to the District Surveyor in the matter. Milk Supply: The Superintendent re- ported that the contractor had been very negligent in supplying milk to the Abercwmboi Cottage Homes for the last few days, that one day no milk was de- livered, and on another it was nearly 10 p.m. before the day's milk was received at the Homes.—The committee recom- mend that if the contract is not carried out, the Superintendent be author- ised to purchase the milk elsewhere, and the Clerk be directed to write to the contractor upon the matter.
Aberpergwm Races. In another column our readers will | observe an announcement of the above Races, which will be held on Tuesday, August 5th. The event is usually a great success, and circumstances indi- cate that the next one will even eclipse al] its predecessors. There will in all probability be record entries, and a day of excellent sport is in store for all racers and race-goers. The arrange- ments are in the capable hands of Mr. T. Rees Jones, who has had much ex- perience in these matters. Besides, the natural attractions of the picturesque Vale of Neath, the popular resort of local excursionists, should be another powerful inducement to visit Glyn-neath on the day of the Aberper- gwm Races. Come in crowds from all parts.
Old Aberdare. Chief Buildings and Roads in 1840-50. A Few Recollections by Mr. John Morgan, Cwmbach. ARTICLE II. What chapels, what houses, what shops, and what inns existed in Aber- dare and District back about 70 years ago ? Mr. John Morgan conjured up a scene before his eyes very different to the one he and we behold when we look upon the Aberdare of the present day. Canon Street and Maesvdre were one green field. One Harrow pathway ran through it, stretching from High Street to the Iron Bridge, at the bottom of Com- mercial Street. Strange to relate, a portion of that pathway is still pre- served it is that narrow footway running between the Education Offices and The Poplars. Pedes- trians on their way from Heolyfelin to Abernant or Merthyr or Cwmbach, would use this short cut, but horses and carts had to proceed through High Street as far as the entrance to St. Efvan's, thence down through Victoria Square, and across an arched bridge in front of the Welsh Harp, and then through Commercial Street. The River Dare was not then arched over as it is now. It re- flected the sky and moon and stars, and never used to play havoc with shops in Canon Street and Com- mercial Street and Market Street by flooding their floors during heavy rains. And it was on the Welsh Harp Square that an arch bridge had been erected to allow horses and vehicles to cross over to the Aber- nant side of the river, and vice versa. And while we are on this bridge, so to speak, it might be mentioned that the Welsh Harp building was the only establishment existing in this part of the town on that side of the river. The Heathcock stood then where it stands now. Close by was the shop of Mr. Evan Griffiths, father of the late Mr. Daniel Griffiths, iron- monger. Evan Griffiths, said Mr. Morgan, was a famous man with the Welsh Calvinistic Methodists of his day, and it is passing strange that his memory is not held in greater es- teem to this day. He did a tre- mendous lot of good work for his de- nomination. Efe oedd tad Meth- odistiaid Aberdar," added Mr. Morgan. <1 Oh. yes," remarked my inform- ant, in reply to another question, "Carmel, Gadlys. was the Mecca of the old Calvinistic Methodists of those days. It was built, if I remem- ber rightly, in 1829." The other Carmel (English Bap- tist, Monk Street) was also in exist- ence at this period, and had been so for 30 years. It used to be called in those days Capel Penpound. It was very different from what it is now. The stairs leading to the gallery were in the gable end. There was only one house in this part of the town, and it stands to this day and is occu- pied. It is that cottage which is situate in the gardens at the rear of the bill-posting stations opposite Calfarla-alone in its ancient glory as it were, and standing aloof from the more modern structures which nearly hide it from view. Hen Dv Cwrdd. Trecynon, was, of course, nearly a century old at this time. and Ebenezer Welsh Congre- gational Church is about the same age as Carmel Baptist Church. Aber- dare. St. John's Church and Church- yard. too, had been giving shelter to the quick and the dead for many years. Next door to the Town Hall was the Angel Tavern, and the site of the Town Hall was occupied by the market of the day. The Green Dragon was also in existence, and stands to this day as it was then. There were thatched cottages in var- ious places round here, and the old Wellington Public House stood where the, Constitutional Hall and Club are now. This old-fashioned house was pulled down. and the stones lay on the site for a consider able period, before the Club was built. There were a few cottages on the opposite side, with long gardens in front called Tai y Berllan. Coming along High Street there were a few small cottages, and on the right hand side stood the Horse & Groom, and further on still on the same side stood the Boot. There was no talk at that period of the present imposing structure now kept by Mr. J. D. Hughes. The old Boot Hotel was (e and the same building as the late Mr. Daniel Griffiths' iron- mongery shop—a building which still stands, adjoining St. David's school- room—and which has been vacant for many years. The Black Lion had a long garden in front, stretching down a, far as the present Marquis of Bute Inn. To the left on our 'way down Victoria Square there was the chemist shop, kept by Mr. John Jones, father of Mr. D. W. Jones, J.P. The "eeffyl gwyn" stood farther back in those days, in line with Mr. D. W. Jones' private house. The imposing business centres which line the road had not been conceived, nenner (ÍlCl Elvan rear its tall spire into the sky. There was a row of workmen's cottages on the field at the back of where now are situated Mr. Emrys Evans' chemist shop, the Beehive, and the L. & P. Bank, with gardens in front. All these were torn down when the present estab- lishments were erected. A public house called the Rising Sun (with a courtyard) preceded the Central Hotel, on that very spot. Looking down Victoria Square (facing Mer- thyr mountain), one's eyes rested on gJ een pasture land where the Boot Hotel and Market Street were built. In the place of the Castle Hotel was a shop. with a narrow pavement running up alongside the Black Lion garden as far as Wind Street. There was no Bute Street in those days. From the Castle Hotel downwards there were stone-roofed cottages as far as the National School, which was called in those days, "Ysgol Rydd," the master of which was Richard Edwards. From the Town National Schools down to Mountain Ash there were only occasional houses and farms, and mention of these must be left over till next week. (To be continued.)

AN IMPORTANT POINT. to those who suffer from Indigestion, Headaches and Liver Complaints is that any remedy to be effective should, when taken, be easily and quickly absorbed by the juices of the Stomach. The marked superiority of KERNICK'S VEGETABLE PILLS. in this way has been proved. They are practically tasteless, are very small, and yet so readily dissolve that their cur- ative effects are quickly experienced— clearing the Head, bracing the Nerves, and removing all excess of bile.
