"SPIRITISM" AND SCARCITY OF WATER AT CARNETOWN. Sir,—Permit me through the ¡ columns of your valuable paper to II solicit the aid of the 'Medium' which dominates the Spiritists' gatherings at Carnetown Infants' School, Aber- cynon, in solving the following pro- blems which perplex the cottagers at Carnetown and the voters generally in the ward. The problems exist because of the inadequate supply of water at Carnetown Reservoir, and produce a deplorable and insanitary condition of affairs in that locality, and is consequently injurious to the health of the community as a whole. The following are some of the problems which call for an immedi- i • "xrl 1- T\ -.1. ate soaition i% no are tne i^ireci-ors of the Carnetown Cottage Company Are there more than two men em- ployed to rectif3' the insanitary con- dition of affairs at the Carnetown Cottage Company's Reservoir, the main pipes and offshoots in Park St. and Cardiff Road ? What may be the cause of the stoppage in these pipes ? Are all the lavatories supplied with up to-date flushing appliances? Are all the channels which convey the supply of water from the springs to the reservoir carefully and properly laid with good sanitary and earthen pipes, especially the long channel which crosses under the incline lead- ing to the quarry? Are the very sources of the springs themselves substantially protected with a high strong wall ? Is there a large and commodious filter bed, up-to-date, to preserve the water from contamin- ation in case of a downpour of rain when the surface water which rushes down the high and steep mountain in the locality, and carries with it all sorts of decomposed wood, dead leaves, and all sorts and condition of insects and other nuisances as well ? Should the 'Medium' be able to throw light on these intricate things, the Councillors from Abercynon will then be in possession of important: facts to convey to the other Coun- cillors at the next meeting of the Mountain Ash Urban District Coun- cil. and strengthen the hands of fhat authority to supply the President of the Board of Trade with a full state- ment of the condition of affairs at Carnetown in answer to his inquiry. The mental worries of the voters in the ward will then be matters of the past, and those Councillors from Abercynon who have championed the cause of the defenceless miners and their families at Carnetown will re- ceive the thanks of the voters at their next election by being returned as our representatives unopposed.
SEEKER AFTER TRUTH. Abercynon. July 28, 1913 HOW SWIMMING IS NEGLECTED. Dear Sir,—I would be very thank- ful if you would.allow me to use your columns in order to ask the Aberdare Parks Committee (or whatever other name it is known by) whether it in- tends holding a Swimming Gala at the Park this year or not. I notice that there will be a grand Military Display on the day usually allotted to the Swimming Gala, but no mention of the latter is made, Why is this ? Does the committee think that a Military Display such as they intend holding will do more good than a Regatta 1 If so. I am very greatly surprised. What do the Labour members of the com- mittee think ? Is it their intention to support Militarism and Conscrip- toon? It seems like it. I observe that the proceeds are to be devoted towards improving the Park and providing free amusements. Does all the money go in this I am positive that the receipts for this display will not be greater than those of previous Swimming Galas held at the Park. It was very gratifying to learn that last year there was a total turnover of between 160 and £ 70, of which about one sixth represented last year's profit alone. Presumably this is to be utilised in encouraging the young idea to chop lemons and slice potatoes. The only redeeming feature is the Ambulance Competi- tion. Another point: Is it fair that the ▼oung men and voung ladies who 1W taken such a great interest in swimming and life-saving this year should he robbed of the opportunity of gaining a greater knowledge of the art ? In Aberaman alone there are scores of boys, and about a dozen girls, really capable swimmers, who have been looking forward to com- peting at the Regatta, only to be dis- appointed by a fickle-minded com- mittee. These young people have put in hours of hard practice, and this is their reward. Why. you would be surprised at the cleverness of some of these girls. Poor schoolbovs You are not ex- pected to know anything ot swim- Biing now. You may as well ease ) up a bit. The modern idea of making the j rising generation hold its own is to teach one and all to attack a harm- I less lemon with the cf r» Pen Quixote Another excuse. The W A.S.A. would have refused a permit. Very likely, when Galas are merely side- shows to Military Displays. But by enlisting the co-Operation of the Aberaman Institute Swimming Club this difficulty would be done away with. The latter is an affiliated club. However, a member suggested this course, and what was done? Noth- ing at all. I hope that these few remarks may have the desired effect, viz., to let swimmers and lovers of the art know how they are "diddled." Yours, etc., D. EDWARDS. Hon. Sec. Aberaman S.C.
THE NATIONAL RESERVE. Sir,—Local Military Authorities will assist uounty Associations in giving the National Reserve a privi- leged position in the public life of the country. Its members will be officially recognized on national cere- monial occasions and at local mili- tary functions. If requested to do so. members of the National Reserve will take part in the funeral of a comrade in military formation, and act as a firing party, and the neces- sary blank ammunition will be pro- vided for the purpose by the officers commanding. Apart from the cost of blank ammunition, no expense will be incurred in respect of these issues, for conveyance or otherwise. Certain events at County Rifle As- sociation meetings should be open to National Reservists. Here is a chal- lenge for the best score in the Aber- dare Valley. Ten men of the Nation- al Reserve will take on any ten men —the best shots of Inspector Nott's Police Force, or 10 men from the Territorial Force under Lieut. Wil- liams. Members of the National Reserve have at last a right royal chance of showing what they are worth. It is one of the very few practical organ- isations which have been formed for the benefit of ex-soldiers. This big undertaking, which is under Royal and Noble Patronage, was started by a few genuinely sympathetic and energetic workers who have the wel- fare of the old soldier at heart, and the idea is to help regiments to raise a substantial benefit fund for the re- lief of necessitous cases which the committee considers to be so. As I have already said, every ex-soldier i should be a National Reservist, and every serving soldier should be an active supporter of the movement. It is only in this way that the Army can help comrades who are down, and wipe out of existence, so to speak, the wastrels who have been a source of great trouble and annoy- aace. Unfortunately the Reserve movement has so often been degrad- ed by men who tramp the country. It is most sincerely hoped that all National Reservists will do their duty in order that the movement may become the success it deserves. I am myself an unbeliever in long lists of patrons. My experience goes to show that most of these are not pulling to help the cause of the Na- tional Reserves. If we all pull to- gether we will have a body of 1,000 strong. Give your name and address to the Secretary or ask one of the I National Reservists for a form. I thank all that turned out on Victoria tSquare and attended the Railwayman's Church Parade. Yours, etc., R. H. EVANS, Local Sec. to the National Reserve. Corwen Villa, Aberaman. The local committee will attend on the 6th of August at 7 p.m. sharp to discuss matters pertaining to Aber- dare District, the Commanding Offi- cer in the chair, and there will be present:—Captain A. L. Gregor, Captain R. H. Evans, Sergeant F. W. Johns, Sergeant T. Evans, Sergt. G. F. Upton, Sergt. C. A. Pullin. August 1st and 8th Drill at 7 o'clock at Ynys Meadow. All in- vited to attend.
SPIRITUALISM AND SCIENCE. (Continued.) Mr Editor,— During a period of twelve years," said Professor Hodgson, I have had, through the mediumship of Mrs. Piper, communications with the spirits of those who have been for some time dead. o 0 I entered the house profoundly materialist, not believing in the con- tinuance of life after death, and to-day I simply say the proof has been given tc me in such a way as to remove from me the possibility of a doubt. Testimony typical of the foregoing is in abundance, and I can only nope to just touch it here: Professor Hyslop, in referring to Mrs. Piper as a medium, said, "Only ignorant people now doubt that Mrs. Piper and such as she can communicate with the spirit world." Prof. Barrett says: I am prepared tc j assert, from my own experience, that neither hallucination, imposture, mal- observation, misdescription, nor any other well-recognised cause, can account for the phenomena I have witnessed, and that the simplest explanation is the spirit hypothesis." Epes Sargeant, the American scholar and a;ti:or of repute, says: "It is for the very reason that Spiritualism has a frier.tif: h°sir- in Vnown and demon strable facts that it offers the surest ground for religion." T. P. Barkas, naturalist, scientist and I author, says I have investigated and experimented under every kind of reas- onable tests my ingenuity could devise. Notwithstanding all tests and precau- tions, spirit phenomena have taken place that are utterly inexplicable by re- reference to any known physical oi psychological law. All this I have done with the cold eye and steady pulse of a scientist." Dr. Robert Hare, in narrating his ex- periments to an influential body of American scientists with a medium whe was a little girl, ten years of age, a pretty innocent little child, in his words, without art or guile, said thus I have continued my investigations, gentle- men, and am as well satisfied as I am of the existence ot any otner natura phenomena, that Spiritual manifesta- tions are a reality-even more than is claimed for them by Spiritualists, and that we are in the morning of an era in scientific investigation that will as- tonish us all, and I do desire this learn- ed body to investigate carefully and scientifically the phenomena of Spiritu- alism." Prof. Sidgwick said: But we can nc longer be told off-hand that all the mar- vels recorded by Sir W. Crooks, Prof. Zollner and others, are easy conjuring tricks, because we have the incontrover- tible testimony of conjurers to the con- trary." 1 cannot go on quoting from the vast records of these great and broad minds. I will give a list of a few others in this and other countries who speak in simi- lar terms to those I have quoted. Theiz testimonies can be all seen in their books and writings: Sir W. Crooks, Sir Oliver Lodge, Professors C. F. Varley, F. W. H. Meyers, Zollner, Wm. James, Gur- ney, Flammarion, Ricket, Baraduc. Bolazzi, Venzano, Lang, Aggazotti. Porro, Bozzano. The list could be con- siderably extended. They are all men of the highest eminence. I have only named scientists, as it is in relation tc science I am writing. Notable names 1"'1 i _• X. C!+. 1 couia oe given in support ui opmtuai- ism from philosophy, literature and art. These men are well known to everyone versed in science. In 1882 a society was formed in London by the leading scient- ists for investigating this phenomena, and called The Society for Psychical Re- search. Its president was Professoi Sidgwick of Cambridge. This year its president is Prof Bergson—a man who is looked upon as the foremost philoso- pher of our day. Similar Societies hav< been instituted in America, France and Italy. Now, I should like if your read- ers would reflect for a moment on the situation. These societies have in theii constitutions that they exist for study- ing and investigating phenomena desig- nated Spiritualistic. Think for a mo- ment that these men-men whom we look to as our instructors on education- al matters appertaining to the affairs of everyday life-have caused to be founded the S.P.R., and devote a lot of their precious time to making researches into--what-welf, according to the Abercynon ministers, into nothing, and this nothing they define as "trickery, fraud, witchcraft, immorality," and their Teddy Bear, the "Devil!" They use something to define this nothing! Magnificent! Darwin once said that an ant's brain was the most wonderful thing in the world. Yes, that may be so in his time, but had he been on the earth to-day he would in all probability change his mind. Now, I think that after seeing the contents of this letter it will appear plain to your readers that Spiritualism's opponents have taken a leap in the dark. Therefore, under the circum- stances, I demand, in the name of Spiritualism, of Spiritualists, of clear understanding, of accurate thinking, of the science of psychical research, of the liberty of thought and of the expansion of mind, either a full and clearly worded public apology for their error or a vin- dication of their position by substantiat- ing their statements and show the pub- lic that the darkness in the pit into which they have fallen is light. The issue is clear, and there is no necessity for any equivocation or attempts at- evasion. Failing either of these twc options then I shall be reluctantly com- pelled to deal with them in their capaci- ty as ministers in a comprehensively embracive and inclusive manner which may turn out to be anything but pleas- ant. Cruelty is sometimes the purchas- ing price of kindness. Superfluous and objectionable qualities are in some only possible to 'be purged at the expense of pain. In answering "Seeker for Truth" Mt Evans states that Spiritualism and Spiritism stand for the same thing. He says that lie does not know of any difference in their meaning, therefore there is none. It is said that ignorance will dogmatise. For his information the following is the recognised distinc- tion between the two terms Spiritism is the collective name given to the ex- perimental branch of science which seeks to study psychic phenomena and sees in them only the phenomena. Spiritualism stands for seeing in the phenomena factors of a philosophic sig- nificance, and thus become related tc morality and religion. Two minds re- presentative of these two altitudes are ? divided by a great chasm. Mr. Evans might also have given us the correct words of Goethe, since he had occasion to refer to him. Cheap condition is nn objectionable feature in discussions. Yours, etc., G. K OWEN. Next Week.—The question of whethei Spiritualism and Christianity can lie reconciled will be considered.

Educational Notes and Comments. A Reply to "Omega." BY "ALPHA." Many congratulations to "Omega" for taking interest in what most people care nothing about-namely, educational questions. I am so firm- ly convinced of the justice of my claim that I should at all times wel- come a "Leader" full of protests such as "Omega's." Let me reply in detail to his argu- ments. The column has one object only, and that is to increase the interest of the people in education and to further that cause by so doing. Edu- cation is in the hands of a few, and whilst you can get anyone and every- one to discuss tramways, reservoirs or drains the number of those inter- ested in education is very limited indeed. Nowhere will you find that necessary co-operation and sym- pathy which should exist between parent and teacher for which I blame the former entirely. In many places will you find direct antagonism pre- vailing, and in the remainder a studied carelessness and neglect which does not speak well for par- enthood. The teacher is fast taking the place of the parent, and parental responsibility is rapidly becoming an unknown quantity. This column has never sought to "pacify ratepayers." There has been no need for such measures! It seems to me that "ratepayer" in Aberdare is synony- mous with "impotence," as witness the result of the recent townsmen's meetings. "Pacify the ratepayers!" Smile at a phantom! "Omega" does not blame teachers for seeking big salaries. it is a general weakness. But teachers don't seek big salaries. They are most meek and do not even ask what they undoubtedly earn. Rates! They don't count. I am so unworld- ly and single-minded as to think that rates are of third-rate importance. "The teachers expect great sacri- fices on the part of Councillors and ratepayers!" What sacrifices? The payment of larger salaries? "Ome- ga" speaks as if he bore the whole burden of local rates, and as if teachers' salaries were entire waste. Is it sacrifice to get pure water or a healthy town? If he begins talking of "sacrifice" he had better go to Timbuctoo, where no such 'sacrifices' are asked. The greatest sacrifice of all is that of the local teacher who has little consideration and no sympathy. It is a sacrifice not of a id. rate but of energy, vitality, life. I main- tain they are well paid for their work" is a dictum I should like "Omega" to expand in another letter, and tell a wondering pro- fession however he comes to such a conclusion. If he makes an attempt it will be against the opinion of all who know anything about education. And now comes an enlightening con- trast! "Omega" introduces the col- lier from Bwllfa because of the simi- lar conditions of labour! But still we'll take it all. The Bwllfa work- man is paid a day wage, the teacher a yearly. If the teacher were paid similarly lie would be paid at a larger rate per day than at the present time. Does he find different conditions where an annual salary is paid? Yes, teachers do outside work. They have to supplement their low wages. I'll tell "Omega" why Mr. J. H. James did not proceed with his motion. He couldn't. Rates again, you see. I can imagine Omega's cheeks swelling as he largely talks of "supply" and "demand." He might Jbe enlightened to know that things are rapidly approaching an equili- brium between these two. (See Mr Pease's speech last week.) It is in- teresting to know that many colleges are even now advertising places for intending students. Uncertificated teachers of many years standing are entering college to-day because the supply is rapidly dwindling. About one-third the necessary number of trained students is entering the pro- fession to-day. Such a sentence merely proves your correspondent's short-sighted- ness. The Chairman of the Mon- mouthshire County Council in dis- cussing the dearth of teachers. said, "The honourable profession of teach- ing was going to the dogs," and yet in seeking the cause they avoid the most important of all because I sup- pose they have arrived at their limit of "sacrifice." I 1 1 -1 ..L__J.. L- A.1, aow let me put a test tu umegd » convictions. A correspondence of this kind is most unsatisfactory, and if Omega writes as he feels is lie ready to support his convictions on the public platform, under the ordin ary conditions governing debate. I am no public speaker, but I am so convinced of matters that I would willingly discuss these vital ques- tions in public. I should like to commend Mr. Peise's speech to "Omega"s notice, and, if he has not read it, the little shilling book on "Education" pub- lished lately in the "Nation's" Series —a book which I should be pleased to present him if I got in school just half of what I earn.

Aberdare Gardeners at Ysguborwen. On the kind invitation of Mr. and Mrs. G. G. Hann, the members of the Aberdare Gardeners and Allot- ment Holders Mutual Improvement Society, of which Mr. F. C. Crocker is hon. sec., paid a visit to the lovely gardens of Ysguborwen House on Saturday, July 26th. The sweet peas, roses, and herbaceous borders are a great feature of this most charming garden, and were much ad- mired. The wealth of bloom on the sweet peas and roses is evidence of the skill and care devoted to them by the able gardener (Mr. Jackman). The climbing roses were simply masses of bloom, health and beauty. The beds of "Paul Crumpel", crim- son pelargoniums in their setting of cool green grass were indeed strik- ing. The heavy crops of tomatoes, melons, etc., and the fine display of ferns, coleus, etc., are all in keeping with this clean, healthy, and well cultivated garden. Having seen the garden the members were then kind- ly invited to the house for refresh- ments, after which Mr. Gerrish, the chairman, in a felicitous speech, described the aims of the society. He proposed a hearty vote of thank% to Mr. and Mrs. Hann, and inci- dentally mentioned the changes which had taken place since he first visited Ysguborwen 29 years ago. This proposition was seconded by Mr B. Llewelyn. Mr. Hann, in acknow- ledging, expressed his pleasure at seeing the members, and also his de- sire to see them again. A vote of thanks was then accorded to Mr. Jackman for the able way in which he had conducted the members around, to which Mr. Jackman fit- tingly replied.
What Aberdare wantstoKnow From week to week, from year to year, there have been appearing in these columns statements made by neighbours, which we have all read with great interest, and many of us with great profit. But what we want to know is, do they stand the great- est test of all-the test of time ? Here is conclusive evidence on this point from an Aberdare woman:- On June 17th, 1909, Mrs. J. Wil- liams, of 34 Wind Street--inear the Day Schools-Aberdare, said:—"I had heavy, dragging pains right across my back, both day and night. They took all the energy out of me, for I had fiestfess nights, and I felt so weak that I could hardly carry any- thing-even a small parcel seemed a burden. The water was far from right, showing that my kidneys were out of order; it was often unnatural and scalding. Giddiness and headaches, too, were very trying sometimes. I was troubled in this way for about two months or so, but seeing an advertisement of Doan's backache kidney pills I thought I would try them to see if they would cure me. I am glad to say they gave me relief from the first, and continuing to use them for a time I was soon quite well. I lost the languid feeling, and the water became natural. These pills did me more good than anything I had taken previously. I always re- commend them." On March 18th, 1913-neai-ly four years later-Mrs. Williams said:— I am keeping very well indeed, and I still think Doan's backache kidney pills the best kidney medicine I have ever had. I always tell my friends to try them as I did. Whenever I have been troubled with my back they have never failed to remove the pain, and I have soon felt all right again." Price 2/9 a box, 6 boxes 13/9 of all dealers, or from Foster-McClellan Co., 8 Wells St., Oxford St., London, W. Don't aSk for backache and kid- ney pills,—ask distinctly for Doan's hackache kidney pills, the same as Mrs. Williams had.
Cwmbach Co-operative Society. The 213th quarterly meeting of the above society was held on Wednesday evening. Mr Evan Thomas, Penrhiw- ceiber, presided, supported by the vice-chairman, Mr Thomas Lloyd, Cwmbach; Mr Henry Williams, the general manager, and Mr Evan Jones, the general secretary. The secretary stated: The sales for 13 weeks reached the magnificent total of £ 81,135 7s 2d, this amount, together with the pro- ductive sales, viz., slalghterhouse, bakery and farm, will make a turnover of < £ 93,814 18s 9d, being an increase over the corresponding quarter of last year by\ JB13,130 6s 8d. Your weekly turnover in sales is < £ 7,217 6s. The members' share capital, including in- terest, now stands at X102,163 17s lid, being an increase over the previous quarter of £ 1,352 3s 5d. After meeting all claims, inclusive of XI,090 4s Id in- terest on share capital; < £ 481 15s Id depreciation of buildings; reserve fund, = £ 100; fire insurance fund. < £ 140; sub- scriptions Mountain Ash Cottage Hospital Eisteddfod Fund, £S 5s; Holyoake Memorial Fund, 324 15s 3d; Employees' Annual Outing Fund, .£5 5s: educational purposes, .£11 National Insurance fee for employees, JB79 Is 7d; on<- horse, < £ 39, and all other incidental expenses, there is a surplus of £ 13,223 6s 5d, available for dividend at 3s 3d in the £ to members and Is 7d to non- members.—After the president's address the auditors' report was given by Mr Evan Jones, secretary.—A lengthy dis- cession ensued on the balance-sheet, which was eventually adopted. Mr Henry Watkins, a Mountain, Ash director, moved a resolution,' which was adjourned from last meeting, asking for a branch meeting to be held at Mountain Ash quarterly for the ben- efit of the lower district members.— This was rejected by a large majority. Mr Evan Jones moved on behalf of the committee that in future the ac- counts of the society be audited by a public auditor and chartered account- ant. Mr Jones explained that he had always advocated such n cause, and welcomed anyone to audit the so- ciety's accounts.—Thp motion was un- animously agi-eed to, the accountant to be a member of the staff of the C.W.S. Audit Depot, Cardiff. The selection of directors, which took plice last Monday week, resulted as follows-—O.v nbach (1 required), Wil- liam Henry George, 174, olocted; Aber- aman (2 required). George Rowlands, 235; Matt Lewis, 183, elected; Cwr- aman (1 required), David Lloyd, 148, elected; Mountain Ash (2 reouired), Lewis Hutrhes and Henry 'N' a t I- n | cUeied; Aliskin, YV.
