The Welsh Coast. TWO KINDS OF INVASIONS. During the past couple of weeks Aber- ystwyth, that favoured and favourite seaside resort, has been the centre of more than ordinary interest. It was in the immediate vicinity of the town that the great Welsh citizen army was en- camped, and the surrounding neighbour- hood was the scene, of their many thril- ling and interesting manouvres. Looking out of the Cambrian train at Bow Street Station the great white city of Territorial tents met our view, and a wonderful spectacle it was. This time the troops did not have very good climatic condi- tions for their annual feast of taberna- cles, but in the stereotyped lore of outing reports notwithstanding the inclement weather they thoroughly enjoyed them- selves." The citizen army camped at Bow Street and Lovesgrove. One is surprised to come across such thoroughly Saxon nomenclature in the midst of this truly Cymric district. The neighbourhood teems with historic connections and asso- ciations, many of them of a martial nature. Plas Gogerddan, the home of the "Pryeiaid pur," immortalised by Ceiriog, is not far off. Aberystwyth saw some real invasions centuries ago. The ruins of its renowned castle bear eloquent testimony to this. The marsh of Machno witnessed encounters in days gone by which were not sham fights" by any means. And the town of Machynlleth, which was an important centre in the I recent Territorial manouvres, was in the days of Glendower the Washington of Wales. For here was the great chieftain's Senate, and here, in a building which is still intact, the destiny of the Welsh nation was moulded by the great patriot and his worthy compatriots. The South Wales Territorialists were conveyed to camp by the Brecon and Merthyr and the Cambrian Railways along the Talyllyn route, and the fact that such a large body of men and their camp paraphernalia were despatched to their destination without a single hitch reflects creditably on the management of these railways. Now, however, the reign of Terriers at Aberystwyth is over, and the queen of watering places has to fall back on her other attractions and charms, which are both prominent and permanent. It is the holiday season, and there are a invasions of places other than Aber- ystwyth, Aberdovey or Machynlleth. Armies of health and holiday seekers be siege the many lovely watering places on the Welsh coast. Th solitude of "moor- land, lake and mountain is broken by the voice of the tourist. Our picture illustrates the West End Parade in Pwllheli, now a favourite fash- ionable watering place overlooking Cardi- gan Bay. Then there is Portmadoc, which is situated on the western side of the entrance to the Vale of Madoc which opens into the North Eastern corner of Cardigan Bay. The district, as the desig- nation "Snowdonia's Gateway" implies, is of exceptional interest to mountaineers. So it is to lovers of the beautiful in I nature, it being regarded by many who have travelled widely as one of the most lovely spots in Europe. The late Lord Palmerston who frequently visited the locality said he had never seen anything more wildly beautiful than the views (in- cluding the Snowdonian range) obtainable from the Portmadoc Embankment. Borth-y-gest, tht pretty little watering Borth-y-gest, the pretty little watering madoc, and from which stretch miles upon miles of beach and sand-hills, has a peculiar charm of its own. Many fami- lies return to Borth-y-gest year after year in their successful quest for re- newed health and vigour. Coaches are run from Portmadoc to the numerous places of interest in the neigh- bourhood, including Beddgelert, the capital of Snowdonia. Between Port- madoc and Beddgelert lies the world- famed Pass of Aberglaslyn. The Cam- brian Eailways Co. run a large number of combined coach and rail excursions to various places round the coast, and visi- tors will find ample provision for seeing the many beautiful and charming spots, making Portmadoc their centre. Our readers who are prospective holi- day makers will be interested to learn that they may' now travel daily by the Talyllyn route from South Wales by either of two fast express trains with through corridor coaches, and which will transport them from the industrial cen- tres of Glamorgan and Monmouth to the truly rural districts of Powys and Gwyn- odd in a remarkably short time.

James, clerk, and J. L. Morris, deputy clerk. POETHCAWL REST. It was decided that three tickets for the Rest be granted to Mrs. Rachel Thomas, 18, Clive-street, Trecynon, and two tickets to Daniel Bowen, 16, Stag- street, Trecynon. LIQUID CELEBRATION. In the course of a discussion regarding outdoor relief the chairman remarked that a certain man and woman who had been in receipt of outdoor relief had been seen on the booze" together. The relieving officer, Mr. Young, said that this happened after the relief had been discontinued. Rev. J. O'Reilly: They celebrated the event. TONGUE AND CH EEK." The case of Mrs. Mary Jane Llewelyn, Cwmbach, was discussed by the Board It was stated that she had been deserted by her husband, Howell Llewelyn, and it was alleged that she had obtained money from ihe Guardians by false pre- tences. Mr. J. Prowle remarked incidentally that the woman was blessed with a fair amount of tongue and cheek. Mr. D. Evans, Merthyr: She is not alone. It was contended by some of the Guard- ians that the husband should be prose- cuted. However it was decided not to take pro- ceedings against either. A WOMAN'S WAGE. A woman from Dowlais who has been deserted by her husband made an appli- cation to have her daughter, aged 11, sent to a Home, inasmuch as she was unman- ageable at home. Questioned by Mr. Prowle, the woman said that she supplemented the relief she obtained from the Board by working at the Dowlais Steelworks (Messrs. Guest, Keen and Co.). She worked from 7 a.m. till 3 p.m., with an hour for dinner. Her wages were 5s. a week of 6 days. Her occupation was carrying fish-plates. Several women were employed doing that work. Mr. Prowle: A navvy's work. I hope the Press will take notice of this. I can- not see how this mother can control her home and children while she is away all day working. I move that the Relieving Officer investigate and report on the C¿'l,S' This was agreed to. WHITEWASHING SHOULD BEGIN AT HOME. There was some discussion with regard to a woman from Gelligaer who it was alleged was of intemperate and dirty habits. The Relieving Officer, Mr. W. J. Thomas, in support of the allegation that the woman was of dirty habits, said that she lived in a house which the Gelligaer District Council had been obliged to whitewash. The Chairman: They should have whitewashed their own house too. (Laugh- ter.) IS CANVASSING A NUISANCE? It was proposed that the appointment of a registrar for Gelligaer be made in four weeks, inasmuch as many of the Guardians would be absent from the next meeting. Mr. Prowie made a vigorous protest against canvassing. Canvassers for such offices were a positive nuisance to the Guardians. -< Mr. J). Evans: You, too, canvass for votes at election time. I have been working for you at Aberdare. (Laugh- ter.), Father O'Reilly proposed that the ap- pointment be made in a fortnight. Then the Guardians who were away would he spared the ordeal of being canvassed. It was resolved that the appointment take place in a month. DOING WELL. Mrs. Richards stated that one of. the girls from the Training School, Gwennie Miles, 11 years of age, a pupil at the Higher Standard School, Aberdare, had obtained a scholarship at the Aberdare County School. THE TRADE UNION CLAUSE. The following tenders for colouring the walls of the Training School Dining Hall were opened: David Eees, Trecynon, £6 10s.; D. Tyssul Davies, Trecynon, £ 6 5s.; G.

Bennett be accepted subject to his em- ploying trade unionists to carry out the work, and paying them the trades union rate of wages. OFF TO AMERICA. Mr. Richard Lewis, of 35, Margaret- street, Aberaman, appeared before the Children's Homes Committee and applied for his niece, Maggie May Lewis, on be- half of his brother residing1 in America, and stated that if the Board granted his request he proposed taking the girl out to America next month. Resolved that Mr. Richard Lewis be al- lowed to take the girl to America, subject to his holding himself responsible for her. CONSENTS TO STAY ON. Mrs. Frances Haines, foster mother, ap- peared before the committee with refer- ence to the Local Government Board In- spector's report, and ultimately decided to withdraw her resignation.
A iYSIEBY SOLVED. For years the medical profession has been seeking a cure for eczema, the most common and most stubborn of skin diseases. Some said it was a blood disease some said it was the result of indigestion. It remained for one studi- ous chemist to settle beyond any ques- tion that eczema in all its forms is a skin disease and related in no way to a disordered condition of the blood. This same chemist experimented with, many antiseptic, healing and soothing agents, I but it was not until he formed the com- pound Caduen that he at last realised he had given to the world something that would bring relief or cure to millions of I sufferers. Cadum ranks to-day with the great discoveries of the medical I world. Its action is so positive that the itching of eczema is stopped immediately. People who have itched and scratched for years find sleep and rest as soon as Cadum is used, and in ordinary cases a complete restoration of the skin to a healthy condition is reached in two or three weeks, The soothing, healing effects of Cadum are almost instantaeoas Cadum is sold by all chemists at 7 td, and l/lid a box. It cures eczema in all its forms, also hives, pimples, blotches, I tetter, itch, acne, herps, scaly skin, rash, chafings, psoriasis, ringworm, eruptions, I sores, scabs, itching piles, scurvy, etc. ¡
I Wedding at Persrhiw- I ceifoer. I PLASTOW-JONES. A very interesting wedding took place the other day at Hermon C.M. Church, Penrhiwceiber, the contracting parties being Mr. Stephen Plastow, builder and contractor, York, and Miss Margaret Jones, Perthcelyn, Penrhiwceiber. The happy day had been postponed for some weeks owing to a sad bereavement in the family of the bridegroom. Miss Jones was given away by her father, and her brother, Master Job Jones, acted as best man, the officiating minister being the Rev. D. Jones, M.A., Hermon. After the ceremony the young couple and the wed- ding party proceeded to Perthcelyn. The kind hospitalitiy of Mr. and Mrs. Jones was duly appreciated by all who partook 1 of it. Judging' from her pleasant ex- pression even Mrs. Jones, Lan Farm, though close upon her 100th year, seemed I to thoroughly enter into the holiday mood of the younger folk. A photograph of the wedding group was taken. We unite in wishing a bright future to Mr. and Mrs. Plastow, a young couple well re- spected by all who know them.
Pretty Wedding. CARE— BOWEN. On Sunday morning, 7th iust., a very pretty wedding took place at Carmel C.M. Chapel, Trecynon, when Mr John E.

The bride was given away by her father, and Mr Carr was attended by Mr John Bowen, cousin of the bride, as best man. There were also present Mr., Mrs,, and Master Carr of Pontypool, parents and brother of bridegroom, and Miss Carr, of Pumpsaint, Caio, aunt of the bridegroom. The officiating minister was Hev. H. T.

> Athlete and Empire Manager. i MR. ARTHUR NORTON'S | REMARKABLE CAREER. ] Mr. Arthur Norton, the new resident manager of the New Empire, Aberdare, is an athlete of note. Ho holds the 9- stone Graeco-Roman. Championship of the World. When 15 years of age he was a delicate lad. He resolved to make a special study of physiology and anatomy, and after two years of strenuous muscu- lar exercise he improved greatly in physique. Afterwards he took to swim- ming, cycling, boxing, and weight-lifting. I I'll HE. ARTHUR NORTON. Whatever his hand found to do lie did it with his might, and success was his. Like Sir Isaac Newtown before him, the sickly child became a robust youth, and on th-j threshold of manhood we find Arthur Norton sound and strong, and a noted athlete To his other achievements he added proficiency in wrestling. He received instruction from John Clempert, the Russian 12-Stone Champion, and also from Gruhil, the amateur heavy-weight champion of England. When he got slightly proficient he en- tered the only two open amateur competi- tions held at the time in London, and won them both. Ultimately he won the Graeco-Roman championship, and was offered music-hall engagements. Later, he won the ratch-as-catch-can champion- ship at Middlesex Music Hall, Drury Lane, London, against 37 competitors, de- feating Jack Weedhall, of Manchester, in the final after 97 minutes of severe wrestling. He also defeated Dave Stan- ton (Manchester), Max Harjtel (Ger- many), Givant Bartoletti (Italy), Jack Coe (Hammersmith), Gorjes Bertholdi (Austria), Sperio Sperosi (Greece), Kid Smith (Manchester), Alex King (Russia), Paul Kerbolo (France),' Stan Piggot (Acton), Joe Acton (Lancashire), Toung Weedhall (Manchester), Heinrich Miller (Austria), Willie Horton (Australia), and America's greatest feather-weight champ- ion, Bob Sommerville. For the last year or two Mr Norton has been touring and managing his own com- panies throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. He is not a stranger to Wales, having visited the Rhondda and Merthyr Valleys with his own Variety Companies. He gave up active athletic- ism last January, and took up managing variety companies on the Mac Naughton circuit, in which capacity he was em- ployed until appointed as the manager of the Aberdare Empire. He is still young, only 25 years of age. He has had con- siderable experience in all branches of the profession, and we have no doubt that the proprietors of the Empire have been fortunate in securing the valuable ser- vices of such an energetic and thoroughly qualified young man.

No Quorum. OFFICIALS & PRESSMEN PRESENT- COUNCILLORS ABSENT. A meeting. of the Aberdare District Council was to have been held on Mon- day last. All the officials and the press- men were in their proper places at the stroke of five, but only three or four members had crossed the threshold of the Upper Chamber. After a little wait- ing the number increased to 6. One more was required to make up the quorum. It was stated that another councillor had been seen in the vicinity, and a search was made for him in order to get the full complement. The seventh, however, did not make his appearance, and the meet- ing had to be postponed to the following Friday. The following were the Councillors present: Messrs. T. Lewis, J.P., chair- man; L. N. Williams, J.P., J. O. George, W. Harper, T. Bowen, T. Walter Wil- liams.
-r"iif"tI.¡_ Religious Observances. TITE OF A FISH DIET. A meeting of St. John's Bible Class. Aberdare, was held on Sunday afternoon, the Rev. W. H. Jones, B.A., instructor of the class, presiding. Mr. W. T. Owen, the secretary of the class, having read the minutes of the previous meeting1, Mr. H. J. Thatcher, of Cardiff, gave an address on "The out- ward observances of religion." Mr. Thatcher is one of the Rev. Gilbert Heaton's most energetic lay church workers in Cardiff. Mr. Thatcher con- sidered that they might with advantage be a little more demonstrative in their religion. The apostle exhorted all Christian soldiers to put on the breast- plate of righteousness. Now the breast- plate was a conspicuous part of the armour, and seen by all. The demeanour of people in church should also be rever- ent. They should all kneel when prayer was being offered. To simply squat down and not condescend to kneel showed ig- norance on the worshipper's part. Another outward form of religion which should be observed was the Friday fast. The prayer hook told them distinctly that they should observe this rule, and the. doctor told them that it was well to ab- stain from excessive eating of meat. Be- sides, fish was good for the brain. There- fore let the day of abstention be Friday. They should also say grace before and after a meal wherever they partook of it. That was not making a paiade of one's religion. He used to say grace even at hotels where he stayed, and his exper- ience was that it commanded universal respect. Let us not be afraid or ashamed to show to the world that we were re- ligious. The President said the Churchmen of I the 20th century should avoid extremities i m either direction. They should be care- ful in observing religious rites, and at the same time beware of trying to satis- fy their souls with mere observances. They should be outward expressions of the real inward life. Mr. T. Lloyd, Mr. J. Gibbs, and Mr, Mount joy spoke briefly. Mr. C. R. Vicary said that he believed in ritual. Education had not killed it, but appeared to nourish it. And it. was necessary in religion. But we should not make our ritual our religion. With regard to Mr. Thatcher's reference to a fish dinner he (Mr. Vicary) considered that a fish diet was not good enough to work on. Mr. F. Griffen moved a vote of thanks to Mr. Thatcher, and Mr. J. Shannon seconded. l.o'lt;r 1!8ØIæ4 _oÓ>
Presentation at Aberdare On Monday afternoon a social tea was held at the Salvation Army Barracks, Aberdare, to bid farewell to Mrs Lewis and her daughter, of Elizabeth St., who sailed on the following Wednesday for Canada. Mrs Lewis, who has been a Sunday School teacher for about eight 1 years, has been very helpful to the well- being of the children. She was present- ed with a beautiful Oxford Teacher's Bible which was subscribed for by the teachers. Mr John Harris, local treasurer, made the presentation on behalf of the teach- ers and gave a short encouraging address. Miss Lewis was also presented with a beautiful Mispah brooch by Mrs Harris. Short addresses were also given by other members of the School, Mrs Nix and Mrs Stonelake, Mr Wilkins, and Mr Weeks, the superintendent of the school. The whole gathering joined in wishing Mrs Lewis and daughter bon voyage.

:t. Taff and Cynon Miners. The monthly meeting of the Taff and Cynon District of Miners was held on Thursday at the Public Institute, Mountain Ash. Councillor Wm. Jones, Treharris, was in the chair, and those present included Mr. Lewis Williams, vice-chairman; Coun. John Powell, secre- tary; and Mr. Peter Gardner, treasurer. In the absence of Mr. E. Morrell, the agent, who was attending the Cardiff conference, the official report was sup- plied by Mr. Peter Gardner and the chairman. The number of workmen re- presented was 5,200, and the contributions amounted to < £ 242. I It was decided to hold the annual demonstration on the 27th inet. at Moun- tain Ash, Mr. Stephen Walsh,' M.P., and Mr. T. Richards, M.P.. being selected as speakers. It was reported that the notices had been withdrawn at the Treharris Collier- ies, where there had been some difficulty over the non-unionists. It was reported that the men employed at the Miskin Colliery had been served with notices by the owners. No reason was given for this action. It was decided to hold meetings throughout the district with a view to get all non-unionists into the Federation.
I I What Aberdare Relies On. 1 The Aberdare experiences related in these columns week after week are awakening keen interest amongst our readers, for Aberdare places reliance in the word of her townspeople. Mrs J, Williams, of 34, Wind St., Aber- dare, says My back has been so bad that when carrying even a small parcel I have had to sit down to rest. It was a dragging pain, with me day and night; it kept me awake when I should have been getting good rest. The kidney secretions were discoloured and often painful to pass. Sometimes I felt so weak and ill. that I could scarcely get about the house, and occasionally I came over so giddy that I could not stand for long. ¡ For a couple of months or so I was suffering in that way, but now I feel like a changed woman, thanks to my using Doan's backache kidney pills. They gave me relief from the first, and soon I made me well and strong. I am also free from the bladder trouble. It is very seldom now that I get any sign of kidney trouble; when I do, a few doses of Doan's pills soon put me right. These pills have done me more good than any other medicine I have ever used for kidney disorder, and I can well recommend them." Doan's backache kidney pills are two shillings and ninepence per box, or six boxes for thirteen shillings and nine- pence. Of all chemists and stores, or post free direct from the Foster- McClellan Co., 8, Wells street, Oxford street. London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of pills as Mrs Williams had. Ntč
