Mi-s. Petei-s t Her Mother. A Chronic Dyspeptic Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The latest cures by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. illustrating how they create new blood, and so restore perfect health to adults and the young, refer to the cases of Mrs. Elizabeth Peters, of 9, Oak Grove, Cricklewood, London, N.W., and her daughter Cissie, whose experience is printed on this page also Mrs. Peters stated: "For twenty years through Chronic Dyspepsia, I never knew a day's good health. But now, at the age of 42, I enjoy perfect health. This I owe to a course of Dr. JtVilliams' Pink Pills. I was only twenty when the Indigestion began to torture me after every meal but after my marriage I suffered so acutely with Dyspepsia that I almost lost all desire to live. Stabbing pains cut through my chest after meals, and it was impossible to stand upright without agony. I suffered, too, from flatulence and palpitation, and often fainted. In spite of medical treatment my stomach seemed to get weaker bilious headaches and sickness attacked me, and after even a morsel of nourishment the pain became violent. "We spent t, lot unsuccessfully in treatments. At last my husband bought me a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to try. After i had taken a few boxes of these pills my appetite began to return and food agreed with me, I -was surprised at the ease with which I digested food, and the pains disappeared from my chest and back. After further supplies of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I was not troubled with flatulence, palpitation, head- aches or dizziness. My nerves were braced ,up, and every trace of Indigestion and weak- ness left me. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured me of acute Dyspepsia, and lam grateful to them for a new lease of life." Because of the Pure, Rich. Red Blood that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create, they have cured countless instances of indigestion, Anaemia, Rheumatism, Eczema, and Nervous Disorders also ills that afflict women only.

Football. BY "SPECTATOR." ASSOCIATION. Aberdare and District League. On Thursday last the local midweekers had their colours lowered for the first time this season in the League Tournament. Treorky, their victors, brought over a powerful eleven with the determination of avenging their defeat in the Cup con- test some few months back. The home team were without Pickering and Harry Williams, but even with these changes a loss of two points was not anticipated. The visitors' kick and rush methods soon began to tell on the home defence. Tre- oichy invaded the home lines, and the outside right put in a long shot which completely deceived Phillips. The home- sters redoubled their efforts, but the splendid tackling and kicking of the veteran back, Edwards, kept them at bay. A misunderstanding resulted in Treorchv putting on their .1 second goal. OOO The second half was of a sensational character. Ivor Davies should have scored, as he had beaten the defence, but in his eagerness he drove too hard, and the ball narrowly missed the net. A long kick over the half-way line was followed up at terrific speed by Idris Evans, but Phillips managed to stop the shot. A foul occurred in the area. Cliff Brain took the penalty, but failed to utilize it. The Rhondda boys were again penalized, and again the penalty was missed. Gard- ener opened the Darians' scoring account. Ivor Davies, with a tricky dribble through the backs, had only the goalie to beat, but when on the point of shoot- ing he was pushed from behind. The referee did not appear to have noticed the incident, otherwise he would have award- ed another penalty. The Darians were beaten by 2 goals to 1. 000 Western League. On Saturday last the Aberdare eleven journeyed to Barry to fulfil their return engagement in the above League. The Darians were with- out Chapman and Joe Lewis. Danny Jones and Billy Thomas of the local Thursday eleven filled up the vacancies. Referee Mr. Palmer, Bristol. Barry started play, and immediately took up an attacking position, Tyler saving splen- didly from White, the Barry winger. From a corner well placed, Stallworthy obtained the first goal for his side. The visitors now began to bombard the home goal, a corner being forced, from which Mac Allister scored. Aberdare continued their aggressive movements, and T. D. Jones again pierced the defence. Fouls were frequent, but the free-kicks were not of much advantage to either side. Half-time score: Aberdare, 2 goals; Barry, 1 goal. Barry came away with a rush, and Jones, receiving a centre from White, equalized. The Darians again attacked, and Bradbury put in a sting- ing shot which Llewelyn only partially cleared. Mac Allister standing well up scored, but the referee disallowed the point for offside-a peculiar decision. Final score: Aberdare, 2 goals; Barry, 2 goals, 0 0 000 I cannot resist the temptation of en- lightening the writer of a letter which appeared in these columns 'in the last issue. Why could not a Unbiassed » come out in" his true colours and disclose his name? The referee was appointed from outside with the sole intention of satisfying both sides. The best referee in the Aberdare League is undoubtedly Mr. Jack Havard, but being an Aberdare boy, 'the committee could not possibly select him. Their only course was to choose a rank outsider, and I think all I who know the gentleman will admit that the Cup authorities could not have made a wiser move. As to a referee wearing glasses, I think the remark was very much uncalled for, as there are wiser judges than "Unbiassed" to deal with the matter. Now for his corner kick puzzle. It will be great news to football followers to learn that a goal cannot be scored from a corner kick until one of the defenders has touched the ball. Re- garding a referee changing his mincl, Unbiassed is not a frequent visitor to Soccer matches or'he would often see this occur. It happens in five out of six games that a referee, not being in a posi- tion to see for himself, looks to the flag- man for guidance, and that official with a nod of the head sets matters right. And now lastly regarding the venue of the Cup Final. The rules governing the Glamora Cup Competition were drafted by a.cOTiimittee appointed for that pur- pose and sanctioned by the South Wales and Mon. Association before the season commenced. The secretary of each club was supplied with a copy of these rules. A clause was included to the effect that the Final must take place on the Aber- dare enclosure. N Unbiassed n says he understands this, but contradicts himself by remarking that the rule is to play on neutral ground. Can the writer tell me where the Welsh Cup, Hereford Cup, or the Leominster Charity Cup Finals are fought out ? But I think that when Unbiassed" weighs up the pros and cons he will be man enough to admit that the best teafti won.
BY "MUDDIED OAF." RUGBY. Mountain Ash v. Aberavon on Satur- day last at the Mount Athletic Grounds. The Sea&ideiV team included the versa- tile Jimmy Donovan, who formerly played so ably for the Old Firm. Mr. Bolton, of Penarth, officiated as referee. For Mountain Ash: Back, Johnny Thomas; f-backs, Ainsworth, Lovelock, Dai Arthur Davies, and Griffiths; 1- backs, Wyndham Jones and Farrow; for- wards, T. Shepherd (capt.), Geo. Caple, Richard Jarman, Charlie Stone, Joe Ellery, Dai Watts, A. Jenkins, and D. A. Bowen. Half-time score: Mountain Ash, 1 try (scored by Ainsworth); Aber- avon, nil. 000 After lemon time, the homesters took up aggressive work, but failed to pierce the defence. The visitors' efforts to score were eventually rewarded when an equal- ising try was registered. The home for- wards were beaten in the tight scrum- mages but excelled over their opponents in loose mid-field play. At outside half- back, Wyndham Jones spoilt numerous chances for the home backs in sticking to the ball too long. The shining lights of the home three-quarter line were un- doubtedly Dai Arthur Davies and Ains- worth. Farrow at inside half was a de- cided success. Final score: Mountain Ash, 1 try (3 points); 'Aberavon, 1 try (3 points). I learn that there are any number of players in the district who would figure in the premier team, then why cannot the committee engage the services of the locals instead of strangers ? OOO

Mr Keir Hardie on India. On Sunday a large crowd assembled at the Market Hall, Aberdare, to hear an address by Mr Keir Hardie, M.P. on his favourite subject. Mr C. B. Stanton presided. Mr Keir Hardie explained that having been advised to travel abroad for the sake of his health he decided to visit India and find out for himself the cause of the political unrest in that country. The speaker dwelt elaborately on the unsatisfactory conditions of the Hindu masses under British rule. He declared that what was called sedition in India was patriotism in this country. So long as the present misrule continued under the British flag he was bound to protest against it. There were 70 millions of people in India who did not get enough to eat-only one meal a day. The average income of the working man in that country was 26/- a year. All that he asked for was that the people of India should be given the power to govern themselves. (Applause). The lecture was illustrated with excel- lent pictures shown by Mr Haggar's Bioscope.

Aberdare District Council MONDAYMr. E. Stonelake, J.P., in the chair. The other members present were: Messrs. Thomas Lewis, J. O. George, D. Jackson Thomas, A. P. Jones, Wm. Harper, T. Walter Wil- liams, Rees Llewelyn, J.P., Illtyd Hop- kins, W. Thomas, M. J. Harris, L. N. Williams, J.P., David Davies, Thomas Bowen, with Col. T. Phillips (clerk), Mr. H. Beddoe (deputy clerk), Mr. A. S. Morris (deputy surveyor), Dr. M. J. Rees (medical officer), and Mr. A. Watkins (Burial Board clerk). ELECTRIC LIGHTING. The Clerk reported that he had re- ceived 36 tenders re electric lighting works, and that he had forwarded them aLl to Mr. E. Sellon, Cardiff, electrical expert, for his report. PARK REFRESHMENT ROOMS. There were five tenders to hand for the pioposed new Refreshment Rooms at Aberdare Park. They were: T. W. Davies, Mountain Ash. > £ 650 David Rees, Trecynon. < £ 575 J. Morgan &. Son (Aberdare) Ltd t648 D. Tyssul Davies,. Trecyiioii X- 562 John Jones Aberdare < £ 610 Mr T. Walter Williams moved, and Mr D J. Thomas seconded that Mr. D. Tys- sul Davies' tender be adopted. Mr T. W. Williams asked later whether it was strictly in order to accept Mr. Tyssul Davies' tender, inasmuch as Mr. Davies was still a member of the Council The Clerk pointed out that before the contract would be signed Mr. Davies would be dead as a Councillor. (Laugh- ter.) Mr. Williams' motion was carried. REFUSE DESTRUCTOR. The contract for constructing the Re- fuse Destructor was sealed. In reply to Mr. T. W. Williams, the deputy surveyor said that the contractors would obtain possession of the ground next Monday. Mr. A. P. Jones: When are they sup- pl eed to complete? Mr. Morris: In six months. CINEMATOGRAPH ACT, 1909. The Surveyor reported as follows:- I have inspected the following build- ings, and beg to report that the regula- tions of the Act have been complied with, and recommend that licences be granted as follows: Mr. Thomas Harries, Cwm- aman Public Hall; Mr. John R. Poole, Grand Theatre, Aberaman; Mr. Wm. Haggar, Market Yard, Aberdare; Mr. David Jones, Market Hall, Aberdare; Mr John Davies, New Empire, Aberdare. An application has been received from Mr. Zachariah Andrews, New Theatre, Aberdare. Alterations are now being carried out at the New Theatre, and this application cannot be considered until the regulations respecting enclosures, etc., have been complied with. I have also received an application from Mr. David Thomas, Victoria Hall, Hirwain. I have inspected this Hall, and have to report that in its present state it is altogether unfit tc be licensed under this Act. The enclosure adjoins the front door, and there is only one other narrow exit. The gangways lead- ing to this exit are only barely sufficient to allow one person to pass at a time, and there is no central passage; there- fore, it would take a considerable time in case of accident to clear the Hall. There is no provision in case of fire. Attention was called to the above matters regard- ing the exits and fire appliances as far back as 1904, and nothing has been done since. I recommend that a licence be not granted. I have also to point out that notwithstanding the Hall has not been licensed for dramatic performances, yet such performances have taken place. I recommend that the fee for the licence should be 10s. for one year, or in the case of a licence for any less period, 5s. for each month, so however that the ag- gregate of the fees payable in any year shall not exceed 10s. Mr. Stonelake and Mr. J. O. George asked questions regarding the refusal of a licence to the Victoria Hall, Hirwain. Mr. George said that three exits could be made with very little trouble. The Clerk pointed out that six years' notice had been given the licensee and no action had been taken. The building was a public place, and the Council were responsible for the safety of the public. If any accidents happened the Council would be censured. Mr. Beddoe: And tried for man- slaughter. The matter was left to the Surveyor. The Surveyor's recommendations re the fees were adopted. ALLEGED THEFT OF A WREATH. Wm. Gwynne, sexton, reported that a wreath had been stolen from one grave at the Public Cemetery and placed on another grave. The sexton mentioned the name of the person whom he thought had committed the theft, but the Clerk said there was not sufficient proof to war- rant prosecution. Mr. D. J. Thomas observed that the Cemetery had been remarkably immune from thefts. Inasmuch as the evidence was insufficient in this case he moved that they take no further action. This was agreed to. PONTBRYNGWYN. The Clerk of the County Council wrote that they were now waiting for Sir Wm. T. Lewis to forward some documents be- fore they could remove the buttresses of Pontbrvngwyn Bridge, Hirwain Road. Mr. M. J. Harris said he had been told by the County Surveyor that the work would be proceeded with without delay after the documents in question had been received. BROOK STREET IMPROVEMENTS. Mr. J. Dunstan's contract to carry out improvements in Brook-street, Aber- aman, was sealed by the Chairman. Mr. Hopkin Hopkin wrote pointing out that he owned considerable property in Brook-street. He had tendered for the work of improvements but his tender was not the lowest. He now asked whether the Council would allow him to carry out the necessary improvements in front of his own houses, and let Mr. Dunstan do the remainder. The Clerk said the request could not be granted, and it was decided to reply to that effect. LIBRARY RATE. Mr. A. S. Morris, secretary of the Cen- tral Free Library, applied for their pro- portion of the Library Rate, inasmuch as their funds were exhausted. There were similar requests from Robertstown Reading' Room and Mr. W. W. Price, secretary of Aberaman Free Library. Mr. R. Llewelyn did not favour paying any contribution to such small places as Robertstown, Cwmdare, and Llwydcoed. Robertstown ought to be satisfied with the Trecynon Library. The matter was deferred. YNYS MEADOW ROAD. Mr. T. W. Griffiths, hon. sec. of the Aberdare Chamber of Trade, called at- tention to the disgraceful state of the road leading to the Athletic Grounds and Slaughter-house, and asked the Council if they could remedy it. The Clerk observed that if the gentle- men who composed the Chamber of Trade read the newspapers they would know the circumstances. This question was fully discussed 12 months ago. He was then instructed to call the attention of the Market Co. to it. Mr. C. Kenshole replied that the road did not belong to the Market Co., but was the property of the Bute. He then wrote to Sir William, who pointed out that the road was a private one, and that he did not care to I interfere between the Bute and the ten- ants. Mr. Jackson Thomas remarked that the Council had done all they could. How- ever they might again approach Sir William. Mr. M. J. Harris asked if the Council could take over the road if it was re- paired. Clerk: I am. afraid not. It is a private road leading to private property. Mr. M. J. Harris said it was quite possible that the High Constable would be asked to (onvene a public meeting with the view of collecting subscriptions to carry out the desired improvements. The Clerk mentioned that the Market Co. spent a considerable S1110. of money on the road some years ago, but the Fait came there the following November, and I the heavy traffic, especially Mr. Studt's engines, tore it up again. WATERING CART. Mr. A. P. Jones made an appeal for a watering cart for Abernant. The Deputy Surveyor said they could not possibly cover Abernant with the present number of watering carts. Mr. Jones said he would raise the question at the next meeting. BAPTIST MEETINGS. Rev. Cynog Williams, Trecynon, ap- plied for the use of the Park on June 22nd and 23rd to hold meetings under the auspices of the Glamorgan Welsh Bap- tist Association. The application was granted on the motion of Mr. T. Lewis. FISHING. Mr. J. Bishop, Tudor-terrace, said he had bought a licence for fishing in the New Reservoir, but trout was very scarce there. He applied, for permission to go to Nanthir Reservoir. Mr. T. Walter Williams said there were two very dangerous places in Nant- hir. It was decided to re-stock the New Reservoir, and the Water Committee were instructed to consider the applica- tion re Nanthir. NECESSITOUS SCHOOL-CHILDREN. The Chairman moved that application be made to the Board of Education for authority to spend out of the rates the sum of < £ 300 to meet the cost of feeding necessitous school-children. Mr. D. Jackson Thomas seconded, and the motion was passed. UNFIT HOUSES. The Health Committee, Mr. W. Har- per presiding, reported as follows:- Houses Nos. 7 to 17, Crown Row, Cwm- b,ch.-Your committee having consider- ed the above report, and being satisfied that the houses Nos. 7 to 17, Crown-row, Cwmbach, are in a state so dangerous and injurious to health as to be unfit for human habitation, recommend that the necessary steps be taken prohibiting the use of the same for human habitation until in the judgment of the Council the same are rendered fit for that purpose, in pursuance of, and in accordance with, the Housing, Town Planning, etc., Act, 1909. Your committee recommend that the owners of the houses Nos 317, 318, and 319, Cardiff-road, 38, Hill-street, and 34, 36, aad 37, Back Hill-street, now vacant, be written to that until they are re- paired and rendered fit for human habita- tion, they be not let or occupied. The report was adopted. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. Cemetery Extension.—I beg to lay be- fore you plans, etc., for the laying out of the remaining portion of the New Ceme- tery, the estimated cost is < £ 1.,500. I beg to recommend that application be made to borrow this amount. Cwm Footpath.—In accordance with your instructions I, in company with Councillor T. Lewis and a deputation of the workmen employed at Powell's Pit (No. 3 Bwllfa), inspected the footpaths leading from the Cwm towards the Pit. The one on the North Side gf the river is in a very good condition, having only re- cently been thoroughly repaired. The occupation road from the Mission House to Cwm Place is in a very rough condi- tion. The fences on both sides of the road have been erected and maintained by the Taff Vale Railway Company. The footpath from Cwm Place through the field towards the old ventilating fan is also in a very rough condition. I beg to recommend that an application be made to Sir W. T. Lewis, Bart., on behalf of the Bute Estate, for permission to level and improve the footpath from Cwm Place, the Council to protect the footpath by post and wire fence. Park Boating and Swimming Baths.— I should be glad to receive your instruc- tions as to the appointment of a Boatman for the coming season. William Lewis, last year's boatman, has been acting as yardman since the death of your old yardman; and I should like to retain him in this position. I should also like to know the date on which the Baths are to be opened. I suggest May 14th, being the Saturday before Whit-Monday. Cardiff Road Watering.-I shall be glad to receive your instructions as to the watering of the County Main Road through Aberaman and Abercwmboi.

Walter Williams, the deputy surveyor said that the plans provided for about 5,000 new graves. Averaging three to each grave, there would be room for 15,000 bodies. Mr. R. Llewelyn: How long is this new space likely to last? Clerk: We bury about 1,000 a year. The Chairman expressed the hope that the unconsecrated portion was fairly large, because during the next decade or so a great number of Socialists would be buried. (Laughter.) Cardiff Road Watering.—The Chairman remarked that the state of. Cardiff-road in dry weather was abominable. It was one thick cloud of dust.
j|||f I > ,r 1 "Pi V,, ,w a«K. tumii Miss Peters (from a Photograph) HER DAUGHTER Sadly Anssmic & Weak made weil by Dr, Williams' Fink Pills "Fragile from childhood and always con- sidered as one whose hold on life was none too sure." That is how Mrs. Peters, whose testimony of her own cure will be found on this page, spoke of her daughter Cissie, who, now a healthy young lady of, nineteen, had for years been "fragile and always ailing." "As Cissie reached her teens said Mrs. Peters, her health became the greatest worry to us. We had the opinion of clever doctors and Cissie took a lot of medicines; but she was always tired and ill. As time went on she wasted away and suffered from acute back- aches and headaches. Doctors said thai Cissie was bloodless, and told her to take exercise but the poor girl hadn't energy enough for walking besides she was troubled with breathlessness and palpitation. A specialist said that her heart was affected. Then we took Cissie to a London Hospital for treatment, but she became so weak that we feared we should lose her. "She lingered along like this until about eighteen. At that time I was cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I decided to" give some to Cissie. Before she had taken the- second box of Pills all listlessness and languor had passed away, and soon she gained a a splendid appetite. Sickness was absent and she gained flesh and colour. Her face steadily became plump and rosy, and the backaches and headaches were not so acute. In time she lost them. As she persevered with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills her blood became rich, and her heart steady she had no more breath- lessness or 'stitches' in her side, and soon., gained full health and strength. She is now the picture of health." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by reason of their tonic action on weak blood. Also, they- make new blood, rich and red, and fortify the nerves. Of dealers or direct, 2s.9d. for one box, or 13s.9d. for six, post free from Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., 46, Holborn Viaduct, London. But you must have the Pills that cure—namely Dr. Williams' Pink Pills -:¡-:&_
