j Football Free-kicks. (BY SEARCHLIGHT.") I would have given, a great deal to have seen the match at Clayton on. Saturday. The United were,, apparently, just a trine too. good for Ever- ton. There is no getting away from the fact that the Toffees. are badly in want of two first- cllass backs, as well as half-backs. The Bal- lmers play a sparkling defensive game at times, but they are too utterly inconsistent for Ever- ton. I cannot see how the United are to. be ousted this tourney from .their present exalted position. They have onilv Sheffield Wednesday to fear, to my way of thinking, unless, of course, some- thing untoward happens to the one and only Meredith. He is half a team in himself. "Ned Llwyd" can run pretty quickly when ."Catron" chases him with the rolling pin, but Meredith could give him points and a beating any day, if it came to a .sprinting competition. Football is on the wane aright enough. There were only 65,000 spectators on the Chelsea ground on Saturday They ought to have been ashamed of themselves. 65,000 human beings of sound intellect watching 'a game of football. Why, the very idea of such a monstrous spec- tacle is enough to make the angels weep. These are not my sentiments, of course. Those are the remarks generally made by the goody-goody bri. ■gade, who see no good in anything unlesis it has their blessing. Football enthusiasm will last ias long as the world,goes round, my boys. < < Four or five years ago I heard a young "ris- ing preacher" d-enoun-ce football from the pul- pit with a vehemence that was simply terrifying. This genius gave it as his opinion that every footballer was a lost soul for ever and ever. But his denunciations fell on deaf ears. The poor chap, had nothing batter to spout about. Mind you. I hate football worship as much as .any man living, but I am not ashamed to say that I simply love the game in moderation, and when it is played intelligently and gentlemanly. There has. been a great deal of utter nonsense written in various newspapers about the foot- ball doings of Ernie Williams, Abergele, who this season and last has been assisting the Rhyl Combination team as a full-back. At present our young champion is having a trial with Clap- ton Orient. Nobody in Abergele fancies Ernie to be a Crompton or a Burgess, but all of us are of the one opinion that he will eventually develop, into a first-class back. At ithe beginning of the season I prophesied ithat Oldham Athletic were likely to be champ- ions of the League (Division II.) when the day I of reckoning arrived. From all appearances such is .going to be the case. There is, how- ever, a long way to, go yet, but the boys of Owdham lare keeping on the right track for pro- motion. < Birmingham are in Double Queer Street, if you know where that is. They are in the ruck of the Have-mercy-upom-us group of "also ran," as they say about the losers in a horse race. BRIEF" LETS. Conway ought to eat ookte and raise up steam. < Rhyl are in the Combination for the purpose of giving other teams a lift in the "goals for" column. Have Holyhead or Beaumaris a fixture on Boxing Day? If so, I intend watching the game and write a whole column of "impressions of the match." Will anyone oblige me with a list of the fixtures, .please? M.OTTO FOR MEREDITH. l'im the Monarch of all I survey, I'm the idol of every crowd, I'm a Welshman from Chirk, don't forget, And of itlhat I am mightily proud.

On Thursday, by the kindness of Mr. Clutter- buck (Vice-Captain of the Llanrwsit Golf Club), an opportunity was given to lovers of golf to witness a contest between four well-known pro- fessionals, namely, Golliins, of Llandudno; Matthews, of Rhyl; Shaw, of Prestatyn, and Vickers, of Conway. Considerable interest was centered in Collin.,3 and Mathews, who did so well in the international contest for profession- als, and consequently on Thursday the Gwydyr Castle Links presented a lively appearance, when the nair emerged from the pavilion. to contest an 18 hole match. Collins was the first to start, and his drive, a low one, just skimmed the bunkers, whilst Mathews, with a lofty drive, cleared the tree. Both approaches were good, Mathews holing out in 4, whilst Collins took 5, the second hole being halved with 4 strokes apiece. The third was also halved, both players taking 5. The fourth hole Collins did in 4, Mathews taking 5. The fifth was also won by Collins, as was also the seventh. The eighth they halved, as tihey also did the ninth, the round being made by Collins in 36 and Mathews 39. The second round was not so well contested, taking Collins 38 and Mathews 43. The Llan- dudno professionals' figures for the 18 holes were 74. whilst Mathews took 82, Vickers taking 87 and Shaw 92. In the afternoon a .four-ball foursome was played, when Mathews. and Vickers beat Collins and Shaw one up at tihe nineteeth hole after a tie. After the morning's play luncheon was pro- vided at the Victoria Hotel, where tihe players .and a large number of followers attended. The Hon. Secretary had all the arrangements well in hand. and with the assistance of the Captain and Vice-Captain tihe event passed off without a hitch.
Penrhyn Castle. Penrhyn Castle, which Lord Penrhyn frankly told a Bangor audience on Saturday he did not occupy because of "the taxes and obligations of his present position," stands in an extensive park about two miles from Bangor, on the site, according ito tradition, of the ancient palace of Roderic Molwynog, Prince of Wales. The late Lord Penihym, who suffered so much in revenue and peace of mind in his efforts to resist intervention, of any kind between him and his quarrymen, made Penrhyn Castle his principal home, and was exceedingly proud of its stately exterior, built in the Norman style, its splendid apartments, and its rare collection of curios. Among the heirlooms of Penrhyn is a Hirlas, or drinking horn, said to have belonged tb Piers Gruffydd, who owned the Penrhyn, estate in the reign of Elizabeth. The failure of the present Lord Penrhyn to remove his establishment to the. castle is probably at the bottom of a recent rumour that the castle was/ in the market, and was: likely to become the property of Mr. David Davies. M.P., a young Welsh. Nonconformist millionaire.
A NEW METHOD. of creating Nerve Strength. ADVOCATED BY DOCTORS. Without dofubt the advent of Dr. Cltsstelll'.s Tablets marks a new era in medical research and discovery. This igreat medicine, lately evolved from-the prescription of a noted specii aliist, iis absolutely 'tbJllaslt word Xn (body- buildinlg and invigorating specifics, and the hundreds, of cures, of so-called hopeless cases of nervous prostration, anaemia, loss of flesh, de- bility, premlaiture decay, indigestion,, kidney and stomach troubles, and nearly all kinds of physical and nerve exhaustion, every day being effected through its medium,, bear ample witness ,to ilt,s extraordinary efficacy and und-ouliaed value as a household medicine, and are causing doctors to advocate tbeiir use. For safety, re- liability. and power of restoring the jaded facul- ties, and building up. flesh, health, strength, and vitality in young and old Dr. Casise,11's Tablets have, never 'been approached, and it says much for progressive medical science that a remedy BO eminently safe and effective has been brought to lijght and perfected.

Conway & District Temperance I Mission. MR. E. TENNYSON SMITH, THE GREATEST TEMPERANCE ORATOR IN THE WORLD. (BY REV. B. MENAI FRANCIS, CONWAY.) The Conway and District Temperance Society have taken a bold step in arranging for a week's mission in the spacious Town Hall of the ancient Borough, and have secured the services of the worldjrenowned orator, Mr. Tennyson Smith, of 'Birmingham. No other name is more familiar to the tem- perance world than that of this (famous man, one of the foremost temperance rrerformers of to-day.. It is, over 30 years ago that the writer of these lines had the priváJege of hearing him delivering an address at one of the smallest chapels in Carnarvon on a Sunday evening, and ever since Mr. Tennyson Smith has been on the public platform and in the advocating with that earnestness and power which he pos- SteiSSEIS íthe principles of temperance and true Christianity. The largest buildings in the most populous cities of England 'have been filled to their utmost cap- acity to liJsJten to his messages, and thousands have been converted to lead a new and better life under his ministrations. Mr. Tennyson Smith is a native of Birming- ham, and has for many years held a distingu- ished position, in the ranks of temperance re- formers in the United Kingdom. As a sp,caker he is possessed of remarkable dramatic power and has for many years been drawing immense crowds in his native land. In 1895 Iheattairued special prominence among temperance reformers by starting a movement to .arouse the Christian Church to moire aggressive action against the liquor traffic, and d I carried on an agitation for years which did much to .transform the sentiment of the churches Irespectillghe l'iquor itmfficers and their attitude with reference to both. From 1890 to 1894 he made a lengthy tour in Australia and New Zealand. Immense audiences in all the leading cities were attracted by his powerful addresses, and most encouraging re- sults followed his labours. In New Zealand he took part in many of the most important con- tests for prohibition. From 1900 to 1903 the lecturer confined his labours in his inaitive land, mainly to South Wales; visiting almost every town of note and causing widespread enthusiasm, and it is worthy of note that shoritly after the close of his campaign, liln that district the remarbtble re- ligious 'revival commenced there. In 1904, by the invitation of the "World-wide Pledge-signing Crusade," Yh. Tennyson Smith visited the United States and here again achieved remarkable success wherever he went. His tour, however, had a sad termination, as his wife, who for many years had accompanied him on, his itiavels, at hoime and abroad, passed away and he abandoned his work in the States run order that he might, return home to lay her to rest in their native soil. After a lengthy resit he carried on a number of campaigns in England, and the Press chron. ioles the ifiadt that he had a great reception, demonstrations being arranged at the railway stations to meet him on his arrival. and lengthy processions accompanied by bands escorting him ,to the halls in which his meetings were to be held. In November last, by the invitation of the New Brunswick Temperance Federation," Mr. Tennyson Smith visited Canada. An official re- ceptlion. to wekoille him to Canada was held in 'the Assembly Room of York Theatre, St. John, N. B., and an official address of welcome was presented to him by the President of the organ- isation. Teimperanaa leaders from various parts of the country also delwelDed speeches of wel- come in behalf of the organisfations which they represented. A ten days' campaign in the York Theatre followed, which was a phenominjal success. The building was packed night after night, hundreds p 11 1 on several occasions being turned from the doors. The success, of this opening campaign was chronicled in the public Press, and applica- ftions for his services were reiceive-d from almost efveiry toiwn in, tih'e .maritime provinces, and several from other parts of the Dominion. He subsequently conducted campaigns in Fredericton, Monicton, Woodstock, Chatham, Newcastle, Oampbellton, Norton, and Chipnuan, New Brunswick and -in Amherst, Yarmouth, Pictou, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Soon after his arrival in Canada an urgent request was seat him to visiit Prince Edward Island in order to assist in creating public eentimenlt in flavour of certain amendments to strengthen the prohibitory law which the tem- perance parity 'desired to get passed by the legislature. He carried on a campaign extend- ing nearly seven weeks, and visited almost every place of importance in the province and achieTed splendid success. His campaign in Charlotte- town was conducted justt when the critical de- ihate was being loarrieid on in the legislature respecting the consolidated .prohibition law. An amendment was initroduced which would have been, a serious, blow to the act, and the opinion was very generally expressed that Mr. Trelnlnyson Smith's work by c;relatilng a strong public senti- ment greatly aided in defeating the adverse amendment and in the passing into law of the amendments demanded by the temperance alliance. A few years ago, I had the greaJt pleasure of hearing him in the Free Trade Hall, Man- chester, when the great crowd was held spell- bound by his oratory, and according to the news received from South Wales this week, where he iis conducting a very successful mis- sion, crowds have to be turned away for want of room. Next week, beginning on Monday, the people of Conway and district will have the privilege of hearing Mr. Tennyson Smith, and the Com- mittee hope that rtihe mission, (under divine blessing, will be the means of awakening the whole district to a sense of their duty. Welsh ispeakeirs will take part, and Welsh and English hymins will be -sung at every meeting.
