Death of CoL T. Phillips. Last Friday morning, after a lengthy illness, Col. T. Phillips, Abermellte, breathed his last. He had been very low for several weeks, and the end was not unexpected. It was two years to this month (May 31st. 1912) that he notified the Parliamentary Committee of the Aberdare District Council of his intention to resign. At the following meeting of the Council, June 10th, he formally handed in his resignation, and every member in the room got up, one after another, to express regret at the step he was leaking, and to ask him to reconsider his decision. This was an eloquent and a touching tribute to his worth and popularity. Col. Phillips did reconsider the matter, but his de- cision was unaltered. A few months later, when the Council elected a new Clerk, he was the first to congratulate Mr D. Llewellyn Griffiths on his ap- pointment, and he added I hope you will serve the Aberdare District Coun- cil for 20 years, as I have done. and that you will be their friend at the end of that period, and enjoy the confidence of every member." Though apparently stern in his manner, and though some- times hasty in temper, he had a tender
THE LATE COL. T. PHI LI, IPS. heart and was loved and esteenie(I by all who knew him well. "The Colonel as he was popularly and affectionately known, will be a figure greatly missed in Aberdare, which he had made his home for about half a century. It has been said that his illness dated from the time he retired from the Council. As a matter of fact it was the condi- tion of his health that made him take that step. He was born in Merthyr 71 years ago. In a short biography which appeared in the "Aberdare Leader on the occasion of his resigna- tion two years ago, it was stated that he was articled to Mr David Rosser, solicitor, Canon Street, Aberdare, hav- ing previously acted as clerk to the late Messrs. Chas. H. and F..James, solicitors, Merthyr. After passing liis final examination he joined Mr. Rosser in partnership, the firm being known as Messrs. Rosser and Phillips. Subse- quently he entered business on his own account, and some years later was joined by his son, and the firm was i called Messrs. T. Phillips and Son. It was in August, 1892, that he was appointed Clerk to the Aberdare Local Board of Health, in succession to the late Mr R. O. Gery. Three years later the Board of Health became the Crban District Council, and Col. Phillips con- tinned to be the Clerk till August, 1912 —altogether a period of 20 years. He w.as presented by his fellow officials of the Council with valuable silver plate, etc., and a few months later a public banquet was held in his honour at the Boot Hotel, when very handsome pres- ents were made to him, and when Sir Marchant Williams, Mr J. H. Powell (then High Constable), and others paid glowing tributes to his service in var- ious capacities to the town. These articles occupied the pride of place at his beautiful home AI)ermelite. Col. Phillips was deputy registrar of the Aberdare County Court. He was an ardent supporter of the old volunteer J movement, and joined the force 46 1 years ago, and worked his way up to the office of Lieut. Colonel. Tn religion i the late Col. Phillips was a Unitarian. He was one of the original members of Highland Place Churcn, Aberdare, and was secretary and then treasurer, which latter office he retained to the end. He was a past president of the South East Wales Unitarian Society, and was a generous supporter and con- tributor at all times to the cause. He was also Past Master and Treasurer of St. David's Lodge of Freemasons, and occupied the office of High Constable in 1879. He leaves a widow, a son (Major Phillips) and two daughters, viz., Mrs. J. L. Thomas, Aberdare, and Mrs. Davies (late of Pontlottyn). He has a brother at Pontypridd, Mr James Phillips, solicitor, and a sister in Wil- kesbarre, U.S.A., whom he visited, in company with Mr L. N. Williams, J.P., 7 years ago. The funeral, which was strictly pri- vate, took place on Monday, the inter- ment being at the family vault in Aber- dare Old Cemetery. A service was held at the house, conducted by the Rev. H. J Jones, M.A., Hen-Dy-Cwrdd, Tre- eynon, and at the graveside the Rev. E. T. Evans, pastor of Highland Place Church, officiated. The mourners were Major W. D. Phillips (son) and Master Tom Phillips (grandson), Mr James Phillips, Pontypridd (brother), and his three sons, Messrs. Godfrey, Tudor and Dr. Harold Phillips Rev. Joseph Mor- gan, B.A., Vicar of Aberaman (son-in- Jaw); Mr Tom Davies, dentist, Port Talbot, and Mr Willie Thomas, Bryn- awel, Aberdare (grandsons); Mr Bies- ley, Cardiff (grandson-in-law); Messrs. John Prichard, Abergavenny (brother- in-law); Wyndham Prichard, W. J Prichard, and Messrs. Watkins, solici- tors, Pontypool. The directors of the Bwllfa Co. were present, the late Col. "Phillips having sat on the Board of Directors for many years. They were Ald. Rees Llewelyn, J.P., Messrs. F.. W. Mander, Wm. Davies (Plasyfelin), D. R. Llewelyn, Aherdare, and T. Ley- son, Neath; also Lieut. T. E. Malyon, Cardiff, the secretary of the Co. The other gentlemen present were Mr D. W. Jones, J.P., Dr. Martin Jones, Mr Willie Jones (dentist), Mr L. N. Wil- liams, J.P., Mr Owen Williams, sur- veyor, and Mr. Abraham Watkins, deputy clerk (representing the officials of the Aberdare District Council); Mr. Henry Beddoe, ex-deputy clerk of the Council; the staff of Messrs. T. Phillips and Son (Messrs. D. J. Thomas, W. E. Davies, and W. G. Parsons), and W. Hogben, Powder Works, Pontneathvaughan. At Highland Place Church on Sun- Jay evening the minister referred in pathetic terms to the death of one who had been closely identified in many tvays with them for o0 years. At the •lose a vote of condolence with Mrs. Phillips and all the members of the amily was passed.
Medicine for the Million. 175,000 Bottles of Dr. Cassell's Tablets for One Firm of Chemists. LARCEST ORDER EVER PLACED. The proprietors of Dr. Cassell's Tab- lets have just received from Messrs. Boots, cash chemists, Nottingham^ what is easily the largest single order ever placed for a proprietary medicine. The consignment will total no less than 17.5,000 bottles for distribution over Messrs. Boots' 550 branches. Large orders are also being constantly re- ceived from chemists in all parts of the country. Nothing but an assured de- mand would induce them to lay in such enormous stocks, and nothing but real merit could account for that demand. Dr. Cassell's Tablets are made from the formula of a noted specialist. They are widely advertised all over the world for all forms of Nerve Troubles, and functional derangements of the stomach and kidneys in either children or adults and wonderful as the published testimony may seem it is true beyond any shadow of doubt. Any chemist in the country can supply Dr. Cassell's j Tablets. j 1

Scraps. BY "THE SCHJBE." Those who are privileged to pay rates ia Aberdare must have been startled when they received the General District demand note for the current quarter, for it was twice the usual size, and pos- sibly many hurriedly glanced over the figures to ascertain whether they were expected to pay twice the usual amount. Happily, however, the sum was smaller than it was the previous six months, and the extra size sheet only contained a little information to enable the "over- burdened ratepayer" to know where all the money goes to. This General District Rate demand note is a miniature Municipal Journal, and it had better be called in future i." The Aberdare Municipal Chronicle." We are told what proportion of the rate goes towards public improvements and highways and bridges, viz., £ 4,127 3s. 8d. We learn that £ 1,890 5s. 4d. is spent on street lighting; tl,296 2s. 8d. on sewerage; £ 1,011 13s. 4d. on scavenging and watering; £ 1,562 10s 3d on the collection of house refuse, and t6C4 4s. 3d. on the destruction of house refuse. Under other heads we are informed that Parks and open spaces cost in six months £ 389 17s. 6d.; Public health (hospital), £ 379 7s. 4d.; Public health (general), £ 495 6s. Fire Brigade, £ 234 0s. 8d.; establishment salaries, £ 1,395 7s. 2d.; Legal and Parliamentary, £ 82 10s.; elections, £ 100; water, £ 382 Is. lOd.; libraries, £ 358 14s. 3d.; miscel- laneous, £ 692 16s. 7d. The total amounts to £ 14,348 10s., and it requires a Is. 8d. rate to secure this sum, which works out at slightly over t700 per Id. rafe. Nor does this "Aberdare Municipal Chronicle" confine itself to news only. On another page appear advertise- ments of the Council's water and elec- tricity. A hackney carriage drinks more water than a horse, for the charge against the former is 10s. per annum, and 8s. against the latter. It is different, however, in the case of cows and spring carts. A cow beats a spring cart by a good neck, the rate for the cow being 4s. per annum and 2s. 8d. for a spring cart. Shareholders in the Aberdare Gas Co. must have thrown their demand notes into the fire when they read the following: "rse electricity for light, power and heat, because it is cheaper than gas." One wouldn't be surprised to hear that Gas Co. directors and shareholders had become passive re- sisters to the payment of the district rate, as a protest against their money being spent in advertising electricity at the expense of gas. Further on we read: Electricity is clean and healthy, although it is geiier- ated from refuse." I am glad to be assured of this. because the other day when I had my nose right up against an electric lamp, 1 thought 1 detected the smell of salmon. Other tradesmen are not so frank in their business as the Council. There are fruiterers who ad- vertise (not in Aberdare) their "vege- tables grown in our own gardens," but who omit tf) state that the said gardens are laid on refuse tips. Why not boast Our parsnips and parsley, our beetroot and onions, are clean and pure, although grown on ashes and filth." Now that the Aberdare District Coun- < cil have started this rival journal, I ( trust we shill fresh news each 1 time, and not the same old stuff every < quarter. Let us have a little more üi- I formation concerning the inner work- ings of the Council and the doings of 'ttee, committees—information that one can- not obtain in the "Aberdare Leader" and such-like newspapers. I commend this suggestion to the Council. At the cConservative meeting held at Aberdare fast week no opportunity for questions was given. This was a great pity, for it seems to lend some colour to the opposition's insinuation that the Conservatives fear discussion. This would not be true, however, in the case of Mr Fox Davies, the local Unionist candidate. In his previous campaigns he was always most ready and willing to deal with all interrogations, which he invariably handled with great dexterity. In fact, his response to intelligent and relevant queries was the feature of his campaign in the Borough. It is said that Mr. Steel Maitland had no time to deal with questions on this occasion, but it would have been better if he had cut down his one hour and a half speech to one hour in order to give half an hour for questions. The miner of the Mer- thyr Boroughs is an enlightened politi- cian, and always gives fair hearing to "the other side," so long as there is no attempt to dodge discussion or quibble over questions. The Aberdare District Council are averse to iisi-tig the tramcars for adver- tising purposes, but apparently they do not mind prostituting our artistic muni- cipal sprayer on wheels to such base uses. Does Mr Stonelake, whose aes- thetic sense is evidently keener than that of any other member of the Coun- cil, know of this What is disfigure- ment for the car is disfigurement for the cart. Writing of the watering cart natur- ally brings me to the question of our water supply. This short spell of dry weather has been responsible for distri- bution of the usual "dry" literature ex- horting us to economy and warning us against waste. I shudder to think what may happen ere the end of summer. Our prayer should be, Lord, spare us from dreary droughts." When shall we have our share of that Merthyr water Monty Ash and Nixon Grey loom very large on local hoardings just now. Any connection between these artistes and the Mount? Mr J A. Pease, the Minister for Edu- cation, at a meeting of the Peace Socie- ty in London on Tuesday was subjected to considerable interruption by male and female suffragists. The police ejected -d" five or six interrupters. Afterwards, it is averred, the hymn, "Peace, perfect peace," was sung in order to try to quell the storm. Poor Pease!
..c-- our Departed Friends. On Saturday, May 9th, 1914. after a very long illness, Airs. IJenry Thomas, Dean Street, Aberdare, departed to be with Christ. Mrs. Thomas was the widow of the late Mr. Henry Thomas, who was for many years a faithful and j active member at Bethania C.M. Church, Aberdare, and filled with credit f(v a long time the office of a deacon there. Both were reckoned among the faithful ones of the church, and their lives were adorned with the beauty of religion. They lived and died in the Lord, and their good works have fol- lowed them to bear testimony to their good Christian life. They left two children to mourn their loss. The son, Mr. James Thomas, is an assistant master at the Council School, Cwmdare. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas are faithful and active members at Brvn Sion Trecynon. 111 Thomas's sister, Mrs. G. Thomas, Elm Grove, is one of our good members at Bethania C.M. Church, in which ,1 h „ 1 i 1.J..L.. r i church she and her brother James have been brought up from childhood. On Thursday. May 14th, the mortal re- mains of their dear mother were laid to rest at the Cemetery, Aberdare. The officiating ministers were the Revs. W. Da vies, M.A., Bethania, and John Mor- gan, Bryn Seion, Trecynon. In con- cluding we trust that our friends will he enabled to look on with confidence to the future, fully believing the following consoling and beautiful words of Is- lwyn "Travelling in a later train, Thou shalt join thy friends again; When beloved ones depart, Why should sorrow plough thy heart ?" Thou shalt realise above, All was but the work of love; Thou shalt call each death a gain- Leaving by an earlier train. W. O. POWELL, C.M. Minister, Aberdare.
Llwydcoed Tragedy. Lady Killed on the Line.-Whistling at Level Crossings. At the Miners' Arms, Llwydcoed, on Tuesday, Mr R. J. Rhys, coroner, held an inquest touching the death of Bessie Annie Loud (33), single woman, from Bath, now residing at Fernleigh. Wm. Jones Lewis, Fernleigh, said that deceased was his wife's sister. She had resided with them for ten weeks. He last saw her alive at 8.30 on Monday morning, when she took the little girl to school. Deceased was hard of hearing. She was in the habit of going for a walk every morning in the direction of the feeder. She had been in comparatively good health for the last few weeks, and had been fair- ly cheerful of late. Phyllis Lewis (7), said that slle went from the house with her aunt on the morning in question. Her aunt kissed her good-bye by the church. She did not know where she went afterwards. Thomas Morgan (12) said he knew Miss Loud. He saw her on Monday morning going down towards the farm. Thomas Burton deposed that just be- fore 10 on Monday morning he found a woman's body lying on the down line outside, a little above the gate. The head was inside the rail. She was quite dead. He informed P.C. Bradshaw at once. Morgan Hees, driver of the 9.17 a.m. passenger train from Aberdare, stated that he was not in the habit of whistling in passing the crossing in question un- less he saw someone there. Both he and the fireman were on the lookout on this occasion, but saw no one on the line. They were going very slow- about 6 or 7 miles an hour. He found no trace of anything on the engine. James Edgar Lewis, fireman on the same engine, stated that as far as he could recollect he was looking out when passing the crossing. He saw no one on the line. William Pontin, driver of the goods train that followed in the same direc- tion, said that he saw a body on the line. He brought the train to a stand- still, and with -the assistance of the guard removed the body. It was a little above the gate. Dr. Banks saiYl he had attended de- ceased. She suffered from neurasthen- ia and depression. She was hard of hearing. He last saw her on Monday week. He viewed the body after the accident. The head and the right arm above the elbow had practically been taken off. Death must have been in- stantaneous. He had not noticed suicidal tendency in deceased. Coroner to Inspector Bevan, G.W.R. Have you any rule about whistling while passing this crossing?—No. Coroner I think you had better make one. What is the good of whistling only when you see someone on the line." The Coroner, summing up, remarked that it was certain that deceased was killed by the passenger train. The strange thing was that neither the driver or fireman saw the woman. As a rule in similar circumstances men swore by all that was holy that they had whistled, but these men frankly ad- mitted that they did not whistle. The question was whether deceased com- mitted suicide or was she killed acci- dentally? The jury returned a verdict of acci- dental death. Mr Jenkin Rees was foreman of the jury, and P.C. Bradshaw was the coron- er's officer.

Maddox, James Evans, W. Lam- burn, T. W. Jones, Noah Bowles, Grif- I fith Evans, J.P., D. Rogers, Bruce Jones, Thomas Jones, Dr. R. D. Mor- gan, Capt. G. A. Evans, J.P., with Mr Alfred Morgan (director) and Mr Salis- bury Roberts (assistant director). Resignation. Miss L. Thomas, trained certificated teacher. Pengeulan School.—Accepted with regret, on the motion of Mr Wm. Davies. The Fair. The Director pointed out that Moun- tain Ash Fair would be held next Mon- day, and he wanted instructions as to whether there should be a holidav. There used to be a full day's holiday, but recently a half-day only was grant- ed. Dr. Morgan What is this Mountain Ash Fail- I never heard of it. Director It has been held before you began to travel. (Laughter.) It was resolved to grant a half-holi- I day (Monday afternoon) to all the schools from Ynyshoeth to Cefnpennar. Necessitous Areas.—Grants Equal to ild. Rate. The Chairman (Mr G. H. Hall) and the Director, who attended a conference at the, Hoiise of Commons on May 14th, presented the following report:— Representatives attended not only from those Authorities who have for some years past been in receipt of Special Aid Grant but also from those Authorities that have hecome necessi- tous (i.e., whose education rate has ex ceeded Is. 6d. in the £ ) more recently. Sir John Bethel, M.P., who has champ- ioned the cause of the necessitous authorities, explained that the sum of £515,000 was additional to the sum of t-350,000 which has been paid to necessitous areas during the last two or three years. Of the £ 515,000 he said the Board of Education had estimated that t92,000 would meet the grant in aid of the meals expenditure, leaving t423,000 in addition to the £ 350,000 to be distributed among the Local Educa- tion Authorities for Necessitous Areas. This amount the Board thought would be enough to give grants to the old necessitous areas equal to the whole of the excess of expenditure met from the rates for Elementary Education above the produce of a 1/9 rate, together with three-fourths of the excess of similar ex- penditure above the produce of a 1/6 rate up to the produce of a 1/9 rate, and, to the new necessitous areas, grants equal to one-half of the excess or similar expenditure above the produce of a 1/6 rate. The net expenditure for 1912-13 will be taken as the basis on which the grants for this year will be calculated. If Sir John Bethel] is cor- rect in his interpretation of the Board's intentions this area will this vear re- ceive a grant equal to the excess expen- diture from the rates for Elementary Education in 1912-13 above the pro- duce of a rate of 1/62 or a sum of f,8,687 16s. 9d. (the produce approxi- mately of a lid. rate). Some of the representatives from the new necessi- tous areas were dissatisfied that then- areas were to receive only half instead of three-quarter of the excess expendi- ture from rates above the produce of an eighteen penny rate, but, fortunately, the old necessitous areas were too strongly represented to allow a resolu- tion to be passed in favour of increasing the grant to the new necessitous areas. A resolution was passed in favour of the formation of a committee to watch in the interests of the Necessitous Areas, the new legislation affecting education grants in the future. A vote of thanks was passed to Sir John Bethell, the West Ham Corporation, and all who had assisted them in obtaining such favour- able terms from the Government." In reply to Mr Thomas Jones, the Director said that the special aid grant in the past amounted to a sum equal to about a 6d. or 7d. rate, and instead of having a 2s. 3d. or 2s. 4d. rate, it would be more like 2s. 10d. or 2s. lid., but for that grant. Now the grant was equal to a lid. rate. The amount was equal to the total expenditure above a rate of Is. 9d. and half the expenditure between a rate of Is. 6d. and Is. 9d. Mr Thomas Jones We get relief in respect of the actual expenditure. We must not look upon it as a rate, but as an expenditure. An Unusual Case. The Director submitted the follow- ing report on Mr Ellis Thomas' applica- tion for an increase of salary: Mr Ellis Thomas is paid a salary at present of tl60 a year; had he re- mained an assistant he would now be receiving from you the same sum per annum. The following resolution was passed on the 17th February last: That an assistant teacher on promotion to a headship or a head teacher of a small school on promotion to the headship of a large (Class 'A') school be granted an increment of salary at the rate of t;5 per annum immediately upon such promo- tion, provided that only one such 'pro- motion' increment be granted in the same civil year. After this resolution was adopted the committee next re- solved that an increment of salary at the rate of t;) per annum be given to each of the three assistant teachers who had been recently appointed head teachers of small schools and to each of three head teachers who had re- cently been transferred from small to large (Class 'A') Schools. Mr Ellis Thomas's case is one which cer- tainly deserves as favourable consider- ation as that given in the case of the lady teachers to whom reference has just been made. If the resolution given above be applied to Mr Ellis Thomas's case he would be entitled to an incre- ment at the rate of to per annum. Mr Ellis Thomas commenced as head teach- er at Newtown Mixed School in Janu- ary, 1912. No head teacher who is not receiving the maximum salary has "marked time" so long in the. question of salary as Mr Ellis Thomas, and vour resolution of the 17th February last will place teachers appointed head teachers in the future in a more favourable posi- tion. I beg to recommend that you grant Mr Ellis Thomas an increment at the rate of £ 5 per annum, such incre- ment to take effect from the 1st proxi- mo." The report was adopted. Domestic Subjects Teacher. There were ]8 applications for the post of domestic subjects teacher. It I was resolved to reduce the number to 3. This was done. Mr J. Powell then men- 1, tioned that one of the three was not properly qualified, inasmuch as she had ohly 2 second-class certificates, and she- was awaiting the result of an examin- ation in midwifery. Mr. Bruce Jones remarked that it would have been better if this had been pointed out before voting. Capt. Evans: Several of these appli- cants should not he on the list. After further discussion Mr Powell moved that No. 14 he disqualified and that the other two he asked to appear before the committee. Mr Lamburn seconded. The Director looked up the terms of the advertisement, and it was seen that No. 14 was not eligible, and that three others were ineligible. It was then de- cided to strike out four applicants and' ballot on the remainder. This was done, and the two who had the largest number of votes were. Miss Elsie M. Abbott, Bridgend, and Miss Mabel O. J one s, A be ry st wy t h. It was moved that these two appeal- before the committee at the next meet- ing. Mr Rogers: And give a demonstra- tion. Mr Bruce Jones In nursing, or what? (Laughter.) Mr Rogers: No, I am serious about it. In the course of discussion one mem- ber suggested that a small committee make the selection. Mr. Bruce Jones I should like to see them myself. (Laughter.) It is only fair that 1 should explain what I mean,. because this will be in the Press before the week is out. I think the whole of the committee should see them, and that we should not delegate the task to a favoured few, such as Capt. Evans and Mr Davies. (Laughter.) It was then resolved that the two be. asked to appear before the next meet- ing of the committee. Summer Schools. Mrs. E. E. Williams, a teacher of Evening Continuation Classes, asked if she could he favoured with a scholar- ship for Barry Summer School. It was pointed out that these scholar- ships were confined to teachers m ele- mentary schools, and the Director was authorised to reply to this effect. Censuring. The following appeared in the min- utes Proposed by Mr F. N. Gray, seconded by Mr John Powell, and re- 1 solved that it be an instruction to head teachers not to censure a class teacher in the presence of his or her class.
Nearly" Pulped." Clyn Neath Man's Extraordinary Experience. At Neath on Thursday Judge Lloyd Morgan, K.C., heard a case under the Workmen's Compensation Act, which was remarkable for the terrible injuries from which a workman had partially re- covered. The Aberpergwm Colliery Company sought for a diminution in an award granted to Robert Evans, haul- ier, Pentre Street, Glynneath. Re- spondent met with an accident on Julv 1912, being knocked down by a tram and dragged along the incline. His right leg was fractured, left collar-bone dislocated, some ribs were fractured, his lower jaw was fractured, he lost one ear and sustained severe cuts on the head. The particulars on the file mentioned "fractured leg and other injuries." Ap- plicants had paid respondent 15s. 8d. per week compensation, and they now contended that the respondent could do light work as a lampman. Dr. Willie Griffiths (Swansea) said that he was of opinion that the man could do light work. The right leg had been amputated below the knee. In re- ply to Mr Trevor Hunter, witness said that the jaw was set properly, but the at-in would never be as strong as before the accident. The ear and the stump of the leg had also healed. Mr. Hunter: These are some of the other injuries," are they?—Yes. Dr. Griffiths added that the respond- ent was a remarkably strong and healthy man, otherwise he would never have recovered. He was 44 years of age. Dr. McClure and Dr. Ellsworth said the respondent was not fit to do as the company required. The latter stated that Evans was almost "pulped" bv the accident. His Honour said he was exceedingiv sorry for the respondent, but the offer >1 the manager was a reasonable and kind one, and should be accepted. He, therefore, found for the applicants.
