Chivalry if) Life. Rev. T. Stephens at Treherbert. The Rev. Thos. Stephens, B.A. de- livered an inspiring lecture on "Chivalry" at C'armel Congregational Chapel, Tre- herbert (kindly lent) under the auspices of Emmanuel Congregational Church Young People's Society. Mr. W. T. Jones, J.P., presided, and in his opening address, said that question often asked, was "How was it that places of amuse- ment were so generally crowded, whilst meetings in connection with the churches were so poorly attended?" In his opin- ion the answer was that in the past they had not fully appreciated the require- ments of the Young, but in the forma- tion of Young People's Societies, he be- lieved they had taken a step in the proper direction, and he was fully convinced that such meetings would foster religious activity in the young men and women of their churches. The Rev. T. Stephens, in his prefatory remarks, said that lie wanted to make an appeal to the young people of Wales, and he, was going to assume that they wgrc anxious that the best in them should exert itself. They were just beginning to realise how magnificently they lived, and it was right that they should know what was meant by chivalry and religious asso- ciations. The young knight, before he went to war, and before he was recognised fully u,4 a knight, was required to place his armour before the altar of the church, and to spend a whole night in prayer and fasting. The priest would come in the morning and deliver to him his armour with much religious ceremony, after which he was a fully qualified knight. The knight was to be loyal and brave. The spirit of loyalty soon grew, and took a wider scope of life. The knight was re- quired to fight for Christianity and his Captain Christ, and to dare any danger that came his way. Such was chivalry in the early ages, but gunpowder had abol- ished all these old warriors. (Laughter). The beautiful picture of the Virgin had often been an inspiration to him, and it had also been the means of creating man's present attitude towards woman, which was unknown before the worship of the Virgin. The spirit of chivalry was thus established in the manhood of Eng- land, insomuch as it defended the weak from the strong. This, he said, was near to the perfect side of chivalry, and he asked them to adopt it. Edmund Burke had written that much of chivalry was dead, and the qualities of the. glory of Europe was extinct. He, the speaker, did not think so. There was a permanent ele- ment in the spirit of chivalry. Though the old knight had long since disappeared, the spirit of chivalry lived on. A certain young man went to America with his wife and family. After enduring great hard- ships, including the loss of his wife and family, lie returned to England. Even- tually he came to the speaker, and said that lie had lost fortunes and regained them—as they did in America (laughter).. For some time the speaker could not get the man to speak of his sufferings, but at last he consented to tell it in his own time. He spoke of a plain sim] 16 woman as if she had been a queen, and she was a queen, the queen of his heart, and lie was worthy of her. (Cheers). That was the spirit of chivalry. "I ask you, young men," said the speaker, what are you going to do in the defence of the coun- try We have a splendid force of knights—territorials by the thousand. (Laughter). As a minister of the Gospel I cannot agree with the movement, as I cannot agree with any form of fighting under any conditions. (Cheers). He was no judge, except on the moral side of the question. The manliest thing a man could do was to spare the foe of his revenge. This was the highest type of chivalry he knew of. A man was a. true knight who would not condescend to speak villainy of another. If another man was better than he (the speaker), he did not like it (laugh- ter). "You do your best to beat me and I will do my best to beat you, and you are a. good man if you succeed." That was chivalry. Chivalry to womanhood, was seen the same in the peasant as in the queen. No man was other than chi- valrous to the queen. Were they pre- pared to do likewise to the poor working girl? Womanhood was as good among the poor as among the rich. The value of civilization was tested in our relations with women. Not so very long ago, women were horse-whipped in public, the bodies of actresses were refused burial in conse- crated ground, whilst quite recently* women drew trams on all fours along the damp passages of our mines, a task unfit for beasts. To-day women earned about 8s. per week, out of which 6s. was paid for board and lodge, 2s. only remaining to clothe themselves. This was done in order that a dozen boxes of matches might be obtained for a penny. Mammon, false, coarse, bloated, brute god, was doing more harm in our country than any other thing or beast. It had been paint. ed in its true colours as crushing down the young women of our country, and making it almost impossible for them to live beautiful lives. He asked the young men of Wales to come out and speak on the spirit of Christianity. Speaking of the chivalry of woman to man, the speaker said that the man who was pleased with his wife rightly entered into the spirit of his ideals, and his wife eculd make him the best of husbands, as well as a complete success in life. It was said that nine-tenths of our lives was in the hands of women. A man became great because his wife allowed it, and women could make heroes of men, because they thought so much of them. There was chivalry in business, and if it was not conducted in the main honestly, it would not last for twenty years. When the "Times" war correspondent was killed, another London news^aner came forward and said that the Times" could use their telegrams until another man was sent out. This was a unique example of chivalry, for, in a way, the paper was going against its own interests. Mr Fletcher, the present editor of the New Age," gave up a solendid berth on a newspaper because what he was required to do was against his conscience. That was chivalry (applause). A hearty vote of thanks, proposed by the chairman and seconded by the Rev. J. N. Elias, was accorded the lecturer.

Plies for 15 Years. -+- CARDIFF BOILER-MAKER'S COM- PLAINT CURED BY ZAM-BUK. The complete cure by Zam-Buk of a most distressing case of piles formed the subject of a Cardiff Times" reporter's investigation. Mr. Edward David, boiler- maker and ship repairer, 28, Cornwall Street, Grangetown, Cardiff, said to the pressman: I suffered from piles for 15 years. In my work I have often to sit on cold iron girders, wet planks, &c., and I think that is how I became subject to piles. At times my suffering was .so intense that to work was impossible, and I can assure you that in these hard times one has to be very bad before one can stay at home. Often when at work the piles would commence to bleed and discharge matter until I was in a terrible state. At home, the only chair I could sit on was one that had the seat cut out. No matter in what position I placed myself, I could not get ease. I lost sleep and J'est, and often fairly groaned in agony. As for remedies, I tried nearly every pile cure, and had, besides, special treatment from doctors, without, howeverj deriving the slightest benefit. Alter 15 years of this misery and ceaseless attempts to get relief, I naturally thought the piles were quite incurable, until a young man I was working with at Sharpness told me how he had been cured of piles by Zam-Buk. Hope returned, and was greatly strength- ened by the result of the trial applications of Zam-Buk. I first noticed a wonderful soothing effect, and after due persever- ance with this rare balm I observed that the piles were not nearly so troublesome. The healing was natural and painless, just as I have been led to believe is always the case with Zam-Buk. After the piles ceased to bleed and give me pain, I waited anxiously to see if they would return, but I am pleased to state that Zam-Buk has thoroughly cured me of this terrible complaint. I show my appreciation of Zam-Buk by always keep- ing a box of this grand balm handy."
