"Greater is he that is in 'OI1 than he that is in the world '1 John 4. 4). These words formed the rext of a sermon preached at Trinity on Sundav morning bv the Rev. W. E. Roberts. B.A., pastor. The apostle, he 'Marked, intended these words to refer to the progress of the world as a whole. The faith in the continued progress of the world inwards goodness and righteousness was distinctly Christian. Pre-Christian plulosopners neld no hope for the ultimate redemption of the world. The idea of Jesus Christ was quite a different one. The apostle in- tended these words to apply specifically to the Christian Church. He thought too, no doubt, that these words should be applied by individual Christians to their own lives.

Trecynon and Llwydcoed Notes. BY MARCELLO. Who is the young lady from Tre- cynon who goes about saying that she was secretly married in Liverpool r Who is the tall young lady that lost her temper in the Park the other Sun- day? It made her look small. The merry widow, like Portia, has many suitors, and a la Portia again I'he is going to put them all to a test. The toff with the grey trilby is con- fident that he will carry away the coveted prize. Ap Barley declares that lie heard the cuckoo and saw a swallow one evening. He had just swallowed a sleever at the cuckoo and saw a swallow one evening. He had just swallowed a sleever at the time. Ragged Dick has volunteered for war work, and has been accepted by an Ystradfellte farmer who wants a scare- crow. Who stole the spade from the allot- ment plot? Unless you return it ,oon, .old man, you will be digging your own I grave with it, so to speak. The Mill Street man and the Llwyd- coed maid have made it up again. Is it permanent peace this time or merely a truce to prepare for another tiff?

CYNOC ON THE WARPATH. "BETTER STARVE THAN BREAK THE SABBATH." » On Sunday afternoon on the Tre- cynon Square a meeting was held to protest against the present tendency to use the Sabbath for gardening and other secular work on the plea of war expediency. The meeting was addressed by the Revs. J. Grawys Jones, D. Bassett, J. D. Rees and Cynog Williams. Mr. Williams, in the course of a vigor- ous address, declared that there was no real scarcity of food in this country, but, unfortunately, the grain and sugar were wasted by being used to manufacture intoxicants. However, it would be better to starve than de- secrate the Sabbath in order to produce food. This latest movement was a new phase of the attempt to deprive us of the Puritan Sabbath, which had been already secularised by elements from across the border. He had opposed the Sunday newspapers, Sunday trams and Sunday sweet shops in Aberdare, and he would resist to the utmost this newest endeavour to desecrate the Lord's Day, notwithstanding that the movement had received the sanction of the Archbishop of Canterbury and some other prominent religious leaders.
EVERY-DAY AILMENTS. For the every-day ailments which affect us all at one time or another, there is nothing that will aid you better than Mother Seigel's Syrup. This proved stomach and liver tonic can and does help you to regain and retain health. The daily headache, if not ar- rested, will surely lead to worse trouble. Don't neglect this danger signal to health, but take it as a warning that your system is out of order, and is calling for attention. If biliousness should follow, accompanied by a con- stipated condition of the bowels, that is a sure indication that something is wrong with your digestive organs. The wise thing to do is to act at once and do as thousands have doile-ttke a course of Mother Seigel's Syrup, note the benefit it works in your case, and then keep it handy always as a ready means oi*preventing and removing simi- lar troubles.
