ULCERS ON TONGUE AND THROAT. OWED HIS LIFE TO DR. MORSE'S INDIAN ROOT PILLS. The remarkable statement published be- low of Mr. Fred Sharpe, of Smithy Hill, Bradwell, near Sheffield, again illustrates the value of Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills 88 a searching cleansing remedy. For years 1. Sharpe suffered from ulcers on the tongue and in the throat which would not yield to ordinary treatment, but he states that Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills positively and per- manently cured him and tells of the bene- fit he derived from their use "For eleven years," writes Mr. Sharpe, "I suffered from Ulcerated Tongue and Throat, and during that time was in the hospital four times, and all the conceivable means were tried, to even give me some relief, but no relief could I get. I came to the conclusion that I was incurable and must I futter all my life. Some little time ago 'Was induced to try Dr. Morse's Indian ltoot Pills, and I can now say with all sincerity that I owe my life to them. They are an invaluable remedy and cannot be too highly praised, and I can't speak Enough of them. I am very pleased to be able to add my contribution to your other testimonials, and you may use this letter IlS you like."

Llwynypia. The concert held under the auspices of the Sherwood Primitive Methodist Mission Band at Jerusalem Chapel, Llwynypia (kindly lent), was a decided success, as was very evident from the excellent pro- gramme arranged and the large audience assembled. Councillor James Evans, Blaenclydach, occupied the chair. The meeting opened with a selection by the Brass Band, entitled Angel Stars," and conducted by Mr. Aaron Trotman. This was followed by a, tenor1 solo, Just as I am," sung by Mr. William Williamtsi, Tonypandy, and a duet, "Over the Hawthorn Hedge," by Misses Wheadon and Horton. Next came a violin solo by Miss Edith lies, C.V.T.C.L., Penarth, who was accompauiied by her sister;. This item was well rendered and deserved the encore accorded. Mrs. Tudor Williams (Llinos Moelwyn) then sang The Promise of Life," followed by a bass solo, The Diver," by Mr. W. A. Jones (Llew Collen). Love's Vesper Song;" was rendered by Mrs. R. Dallimore, Tony- pandy, after which the Orchestral Band, under the conductorsihip of Mr. J. F. Farmer, played Sweet Chiming Bells," which was well appreciated. Next came a pianoforte duet by Misses Blackwell and Mills, followed by a song, Thona," sung by Mr. Oliver Williams. Miss lies again contributed a, violin solo, which was encored. "Money Matters," a duet sum: by Miss Naomi Brinn and Mr. David Brinn, Pentre, was very laughable, and was richly enjoyed. Miss Wheadon again contributed a, song, The Children's Home," followed by The Man of Sorrows," sung by Miss! Horton. The band finished by playing Gospel Trumpets." Miss Edith, E. Farmer ful- filled the duties of accompanist through- out the evening. Mr. Samuel Lock, Sher- wood, is to be congratulated upon the success of the concert, which was pro- moted under his direction. The proceeds were in aid of the instruments of the Sherwood Brass Band. For ChildHacking Cough at night, WOOCI9, Great Peppermint Cure. 21/9. :0

Cwmparc. A very successful bachelors' tea was held under the auspices of the Soar Young People's Society at that place of worship on Saturday evening last. The tables looked very inviting and were loaded with choice bits," supplied by the members of the chapel. The gentlemen waiters, resplendent in their white aprons, did their work well at the festive boards, and satisfied the numerous guests in every direction. Messrs. T. J. Jones, Tom Wil- liams, H. Evans, T. J. Jenkins, Jack Evans and Fred Hughes manipulated the teapots, while Messrs. Morris Evans, Geraldis Jones, Morgan Davies and D. J. Rees attended assiduously on the guests. A programme was gone through after the tea, when topicals by Messrs. Bonfil Davies and H. Evans were pro- minent features. The profits went to defray the cost of a new piano. It is with sincere feelings of sympathy that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Maud Williams, the wife of Mr. G. Williams, engineer, Abergorchv Colliery. Deceased, who was only married a short time ago, was the only daughter of Mr. James Davies, checkweigher, Dare Colliery. After a short and severe illness, she passed away on Sunday morning last. The interment took place at Treorchy Ceme- tery on Thursday, the Rev. T. Tissington, Cwmparc, officiating. Cwmparc people were also grieved at the news that Mrs. Price the widow of Mr. John Price, mason, had suddenly died on Sunday last. Deceased was one of the oldest inhabitants of Cwmparc, having lived here for thirty-six years. She had reached the age of 81 and had become helpless in her later years, so was obliged to keep to her bed. The old faces are disappearing in Cwmparc.

Ogmore Vale. Temperance Demonstration.—A huge temperance demonstration took place at Ogmore Vale on Saturday afternoon last. It included several of the local ministers, and was headed by Chepstow's Band. The demonstration paraded the main streets and thoroughfares. In the evening, a meeting was held at Bethlehem Chapel, when stirring temperance addresses were delivered by the Rev. J. Tertius Phillips, Cardiff; and the Rev. J. M. Mills, Nantymoel. The chair was occupied by the Rev. Charles Williams. Scholastic Success. Miss Gladys Bryant. of Highland Place, has been successful in passing the TeacherS" Certi- ficate Examination. We heartily con- gratulate Miss Bryant on her success.
Pentre. Two very successful concerts were given at Nazareth last Thursday and Saturday by the Band of Hope Choir. The work undertaken was Gwilym Gwent's Plant y Tlotty" (" The Workhouse Children "), and those responsible for the performances h ave every reason to be proud of their work. The only artiste engaged outside of the choir was Master Trevor Watkins, of Ystrad, who materially helped in making the concerts so success- ful. A short miscellaneous programme preceded the cantata, including the fol- lowing items: Y Cymroi Dewr," by Mr. John Davies; The Holy City," by Mrs. S. Evans; "Sing, Sweet Bird," by Master Trevor Watkins (encored); Darlun fy Mam," by Miss Martha L. Griffiths; Cwymp Llewelyn," by Mr. Evan Eavns. The above soloists also took part in the cantata, and were assisted by the folliwing members of the Band of Hope: —Misses Gwen Rosser,. Beatrice Lewis, Sarah Ann Howells, Mary Jane Edwards, Florrie Richards, Jennet Rosser and H. Mordecai, Masters E. Mordecai, Stanley Griffiths, H. O. Powell, and J. Oliver Davies. The choruses were excel- lently rendered, reflecting great credit upon the conductor, Mr. John Evans. Special mention should be made of the chorus, "Dyddiau Hyfryd," which was sung twice by special request. The accom- panists were Miss Fanny Hugh (at the organ), and Miss Maggie Edwards (at the piano). The chairman on Thursday even- ing was Councillor Walter Williams, and the Rev. Daniel Davies (pastor) was in command on Saturday evening. An accident occurred near Siloh Chapel on Sunday afternoon. A ten-year-old boy, named Ivor Jones, living at Lewis Street, was crossing the road, when he was knocked down by an electric car, sus- taining some bruises and becoming un- conscious for a short time. He was taken to the local surgery and medically assisted, and he is now well on the way to recovery. Fortunately, accidents to children on our streets are very rare, considering; the heavy traffic. <v One of the most successful socials ever held under the auspices of the local branch of the National Amalgamated Union of Shop Assistants, Clerks and Warehouse- men was that which took place at the Central Hotel, Pentre, on Thursday last. Great preparations had been made for a record attendance, and the responsible officials were delighted to achieve another record. The host, Mr. Collier, had pro- vided an excellent spread, which was thoroughly appreciated. Following; the masticating operations, a miscellaneous programme was proceeded with, under the able guidance of the chairman., Mr. W. Moses, Gelli. The artistes were:- Miss Nana Jones, Mr. Bob, Williams, and 1 Mr. Roberts (Oliver's), who gave every satisfaction. Mr. Davies (Hodges) ex- celled himself with some amusing recita- tions, which were greeted with applause. Miss Rogers (Chile's) accompanied the songs in an efficient manner. The remain- der of the evening was devoted to games, which were organised by Mr. Taylor, who, as secretary of the movement, deserves great praise for his excellent arrangements. ——— The sixth winter session of the Young People's Society at Siloh was concluded on Tuesday evening, when Mr. Hugh Davies introduced and discussed the sub- ject, "Cyfrifiad a Gras." In the pre- vious week, there was a slight change in the programme, improvement or educa- tion in a strange direction being at- tempted. Mr. D. Thomas, B.Sc., per- formed a few experiments in the domain of science. which were of interest to the large number of members present. The recent libel case involving Mr. D. Lloyd George is a sore subject in Wales, and several pulpit references were made last Sunday. One of the most effective references locally was that by the Rev. J. J. Williams) at Siloh, Pentre, on Sun- day, when discousnng upon the value of a, good character. A person against whom successful arguments cannot be found, is frequently attacked in some mean, under- handed and insidious way. The rev. gentleman vigorously denounced this par- ticular type of evil. the seeds of which multiply and' spread so rapidly. We rejoice that the, character of our great Welshman has been so completely vindi- cated, and that a good character is still a, very high ideal among Welshmen in both high and low circles. The Rev E. Arfon Jones preached his farewell sermon at Ebenezer, Dinas, last
Tonyrefiail. On Sunday last, special services were held at St. John's Church (Welsh). The preacher at the evening service was the vicar, the Rev. D. T. Griffiths. A solo was rendered by Miss Alma, Porth. The collections were in aid of the Church Restoration Fund. --+-- At a recent examination in connection with the St. John's Ambulance Associa- tion, the following passed successfully — First year: Messrs. Joseph Hawkins, Dd. Howell, Percy James, Wm. Henry John, Thomas Jones, David Matthews, James Protheroe, Arthur Reed, James Watkins, and David J. Williams. Second year:' Messrs. Henry Protheroe and Thomas White. Third year: Mr. S. H. Holtam. The instructor was Dr. Munro, and it is encouraging to him that, out of 15 students, 13 passed successfully. The classes were held at the Council School. Take Woods' Great Peppermint Cure for Coughs and Colds; it never fails. lIlt, 2/9.

We have received a copy of an interest- ing little manual, entitled Physical Culture," published by Messrs. John Leng and Co., Ltd., the well-known Dundee firm. The manual, which is published at the modest sum of one penny, has been written by Mr. J. J. Miller, a recognised authority on the subject, and is admir- ably suited to aid in preserving the health of the body. Mr. Miller has kept the needs of the people in view. No expen- sive apparatus is required, and all the exercises may be done at home. By clear writing and lavish illustration, every movement is described in such a way as tQ be plain to all readers. In these days when so much attention is paid to the physique, this manual should have a large circulation. = iLb HEALTH dogginp your footsteps Are you always suffering ? Per- haps it is constant headache. Or pain after eating, and nausea. May- be you get suddenly dizzy and tired without any reason. Perhaps you have a pain near the heart, and feel as if you were choking after going upstairs. Ill-health will con- tinue to dog your footsteps until you cure the Indigestion which is the cause of these symptoms. Take Mother Seigel's Syrup and all these troubles will vanish as they did in the case of Mrs. S. J. Bassett, z, Venetian Place, Institution Street, Woodhouse, Leeds. In a recent letter she says: I would wake up sick, feeling weak and quite unfit for the day's work. I had no appetite and dreaded to eat because of the pain at my chest which followed. Three years since Mother Seigel's Syrup cured me of all my ailments and there is still no sign of a return of any of them." — MOTHER——I IVA" SEIGEL5 I SYRUP
JEFFERSON'S TEN RULES. Never put off until to-morrow what you can do to-day. Never trouble another for what you can do yourself. Never spend your money before you have made it. Never buy what you don't want because it is cheap. Pride costs more than hunger, thirst, and cold. We seldom regret of having eaten too little. Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly. How much pain the evils that have never hap- pened have cost us. Take things always by the smooth handle. ØOOD WORDFC TO PARENTS. Remember that each of your children is a future man or woman who some day will have an individual opinion on all the faults you com- mit, and who will judge you accordingly. Remember that your children are like plants, which, for their well-being, require in turn sun- shine and rain—that is to say, love and severity Never forget that you are the model on which a child practises its imitative instincts. If you' wish to make your children into truthful beings' avoid all untruths, even those which seem harm-, less. § Shew your children again and again that people can live happily with the smallest means.; Above all, teach them that a shilling is not only: composed of twelve pence but of forty-eight: farthings. If you would keep your children unspoilt, do not offer them the pleasures of grown-up people.' A child's best ornament is its childish grace therefore dress your children in a manner which will not interfere with their natural movements.' Leave your occupation now and then when your children ask you to join them in their play, for in this way you remain their best friend. Try to vary your children's occupations, for in this way you will keep them mentally and physi- cally bright. And be most careful that your children's sleep at night should be long and undisturbed. WHERE»THEKE's A WILL In the battlefield of life, confidence and cour- age are as necessary qualities to gain the victory as on the plain of carnage before the canon's mouth. You may think you are unable to per- form, but you never can be sure until you try, and you never will try until you get confidence in your own power to accomplish. Remember that what others have done may be possible for you to do; take example by those who have suc- ceeded, and make up your mind to do likewise. REAL TROUBLE. Real trouble seldom fails to call forth real helpfulness and plenty of it. Some of it may be blundering in expression, but at least it is warm-hearted and eager. Let it be certainly known in any community that a larder is empty with no means of replenishing, that there is scant money with which to lay away the pre- cious dead, that the sick need delicacies that cannot be furnished, and aid will be swift and abundant. The world is not too busy to minister to actual need, but it has little patience with imaginary woes, and no time to stop and weep with those who ought to get up and work. It is chiefly this latter class, those who are devoting themselves to bemoaning their own hardships and privations, who have discovered that this in a cold and heartless world. LOBSTER SALAD.—A delicious mixed lobster and green salad is prepared as follows: Take a goQd-si^ed boiled lobster, pick out the flesh of the body and great claws, and cut it into longish slips. Then pull the leaves of a head of lettuce and an endive asunder into small pieces, and mix this also lightly with the lobster. Place all together in a salad bowl, and pour over them a good dressing. Mix lightly with two wooden forks. Garnish with hard-boiled eggs, cut in small pieces, slices of cucumber and beetroot, the coral of the lobster, an ounce of capers, four or five anchovies, boned and cut into fourths, and a few delicate celery and endive leaves be- tween. The tinned lobster answers very well 'ad, if the fresh fish is not easily ob- tainable.
THE OLDEST COPT OF THE GOSPEL. The reputed oldest copy in Greek of the Old and New Testament is in the Vatican, and was written in the fourth or fifth century. The next in age is the Alexandrian Codex (referred to in the fifth century) in the British Museum. This was presented to Charles 1. by the Greek Patri- arch. It was printed in England, edited by Woide and Baker, 1786-1821. The most ancient copy of the Hebrew Scriptures known existed formerly at Toledo. It was called the Codex of Hillel, and was of a very early date, probably the fourth century after Christ, though some au- thorities Dlace it 300 years earlier. THE ALTRUISTS AND THE DOG. "Short Stories about Failsworth Folk" (Blackpool: Union Printers), by Mr. S. Scho- field, has many touches of simple quaint humour like the following: I remember Brierley once telling me a good story of how he and Waugh had been giving readings before a scanty audience at Blackpool They had scarcely drawn sufficient to pay for the room. Returning to their lodgings, after the entertainment, in a downpour of rain, they met I a dog slouching along the street, the very pic- ture of misery as it went along with ita tail be- tween its legs. "Does theaw see that dog?" Waugh said to Brierley. Aye, aw do," replied I Ben. Well, it strikes me," Waugh continued, "that dog's bin givin' readme." Henry asked me to be his wife last night," she told her chum. Oh, I'm so delighted, Ger- trude. And how did it happen?" Well, he just asked me, and I said, 'Yes,' and then he just stood up and folded his arms." "What! He was no more interested than that?" "Oh, but, you see, I was in them when he folded them." The assistants at a large linen-draper's shop were preparing for the yearly sale. What shall I mark that lot of black silk? asked an assist- ant of the employer. Mark the selling price fifteen shillings a yard," was the answer. 51 But it only cost ten shillings a yard," said the astonished employee. I don't care what it oost. I am selling off regardless of cost," re- torted the ahop-owner. i

Working Man's Plucky Struggle. Some people see life in the rosiest of hues. To others, lessi fortunate, it is nothing but a sombre, dismal existence. Throughout the land there a-re hundreds of working men and women silently nursing some heavy pain or affliction, yet plodding on with a pertinacity that is something heroic. For six years Mr. Abraham Mudd, residing at Pine Street, Waldridge Fell., Chaster-le-Street, endured such a struggle. Listen to what lie now writes For six years I have suffered from rheumatism. Nothing that I ever tried gave me the least relief until I applied Dr. Sloan's Liniment, the pene- trating properties of which are infallible in giving speedy and thorough comfort. I have never been troubled with rheu- matism since I tried Dr. Sloan's Liniment, and I shall always have the remedy in my possession. You have my permission to publish this letter anywhere."

Concert at Trealaw. On Thursday and Saturday last, crowded audiences assembled at Seion (C.M.) Chapel, Trealaw, the occasion being the rendering of the sacred can- tata, The Blind Maid of Bethany. The book is descriptive of a Palestinian blind maid brought into contact with Jesus. The scene is laid in Bethany, and all the circumstances take place during the closing months of our Lord's life. The work opens with the chorus of pilgrims, \Vth sniofi and quartet, and winds up with the chorus, "Awake, awake, 0 Israel." The principal part& were taken by the following: —" Adinah (the blind girl of Bethany), Miss Lizzie Evans. A.C. (soprano); Mary of Bethany," Mrs. 0. Samuel (contralto; "Nathan," Mr. J. Howells (baritone); Zillah' Miss Me- gan; "Simon" and" Bartimeus." Mr. William Morris and Mr. W. Edwards. Miss Emaa Lewis -ang the solo part in the quartet. The conductor of the choir, Mr. E. T. Davies, is to be congratulated upon the high success attained by the choristers1, tand the choir and artistes, all of whom are members of the church, may feel proud of having given such an excellent rendering of the book. Mrs. Roberts and Miss Annie Ellis fulfilled the duties of accompanist in a. very credit- able manner. The chair was occupied on Thursday evening by Councillor R. S. Griffiths. J.P., and on Saturday evening by Mr. Tom Evans, M.E.
"Smoker" at Trehafod. Councillor W. T. Davies' Surprise A smoking concert was held at the Vaughan's Arms, Trehafod. on Thursday evening, under the auspices of the R.A.O.B. There was a large attendance, over which Councillor W. T. Davies pre- sided. In the course of his opening remarks, Mr. Davies expressed his appreciation of the opportunity afforded him by the lodge to thank them a constituents for the further coninuance of their confidence in him. He deeply regretted that the desire to oppose him had emanated from a dis- trict that he thought he had done so much for, and he was therefore quite surprised. He had been recently termed a capitalist, monopolist, and he knew not what. He, however, claimed that he had done his best for whatever cause that was worthy of support, and he hoped that he would always continue to do so (applause). As a member of the Rhondda District Coun- cil, he had always endeavoured to do his duty (hear, hear). j Mr. Tudor Jenkins, head of the Order, referred to the chairman as a philan- thropist, and dwelt on his activity in connection with the Carnival, Nursing Association, Christmas Poor Fund, &c. Whatever he fiad done he had done it to those to whom he owed his present posi- tion (applause). j A capital programme was gone through, j contributed by eminent local artistes.
A Wonderful Organisation. The March issue of Night and Day," the quarterly organ of Dr. Barnardo's Homes, as usual provides interesting reading for the charitable public in its wonderful records of child salvage. It is remarkable that this single institution (consisting of 140 branches) has under its care no fewer than 8,300 boys and girls who have no parents or) guardians to provide for them. That points to some regrettable social conditions, but it is at the same time a cheerful omen in that it implies a great amount of philan- thropic and Christian sympathy prac- tically directed towards the rescue of the helpless. The illustrations from photo- graphs are in themselves an argument for the work which they portray. More than one-half of the children under the care of the Homes aI, boarded out, and from an article in this issue it appears that there is no method of dealing with children so efficient, so economical and so valuable in many aspects as that of placing out the little folks in selected households in rural districts. The death- rate among 3,150 children boarded out in England alone is only 2f per thousand —simply a phenomenally low statistic! The other contents of the magazine in- clude a, series of typical rescue cases which would seem to prove conclusively the value of the Homes as a rescue agency; an excellent and sympathetic summary of the new Children's Act; an eloquent address in support of the work by Arch- deacon Wilberforce, chaplain to the House of Commons; some account of the 200th Emigration Party from the Homes (21,000 have now been emigrated and not two in a hundred of these have failed); and many interesting editorial notes.

Treherbert. A billiard match between the Treher- bert and Pentre Conservative Clubs was I played on Thursday last at Treherbert. The first game between W. Lewis (Tre- nerberto and T. Thomas (Pentre) was easily won by the former, as indicated by the following score: -Lewis" 100; JThomas, 49. The next two games were toore evenly contested, the scores being: -E. Edwards (Treherbert), 100; F. Hockaday, 94; F. Williams (Treherbert), 100; I. Wines, 81. Bennett (Treherbert) and J. Bartlett were matched in the next Same. The home player was much the superior and beat his opponent with the greatest ease; but Bartlett was applauded for several fine shots. Scores —Bennett, 100; Bartlett, 37. T. Beams, for Tre- herbert, took the lead against A. Smith. The visitor made many good efforts to -equalise the score, playing many fine shots; but Beams was equal to the occa- sion, and eventually won. Scores: Beams, 100; Smith, 80. The last game between B. Thomas (Pentre) and Thomp- son was won for the homesters. Thompson played a masterly game throughout, and was much the better of the pair. gc,Dres --Thompson, 100; B. Thomas, 45. The aggregate scores were: -T,re- Herbert, 600; Pentre, 386. A big fight is anticipated in the coming election. Councillor D. R. Jones, M.E., will be opposed by Mr. Rees Morgan Rees, who is the only opposing candidate announced as yet. We are given to under- stand that the local Trades and Labour Council will not nominate a candidate, and we have been told by one who knows that on no account will a three-cornered fight be realised. Should any third can- didate enter the field, then a certain body *>t people will be quite prepared to send a fourth. Thus the tuslle will either we between two or four candidates.

A certain learned man was superintending the education of a king's son; and he was chastising him without mercy, and reproving him with asperity. The boy, out of all patience, com- plained to the king, his father, and laid bare before him his much bruised body. The king was much offended, and, sending for the master, said: You do not treat the children of my meanest subject with the harshness and cruelty you do my boy; what do you mean by this? He replied: To think before they speak, and to de- liberate before they act, are duties incumbent upon all mankind, and more immediately upon kings; because whatever may drop from their hands and tongue, the special deed or word will somehow become the subject of public ani- madversion whereas any act or remark of the commonalty attracts not such notice: "Let a darwesh, or poor man, commit a hundred indis- cretions, and his companions wiD not notice one out of the hundred; and let a king but utter one foolish word, and it will be echoed from kingdom to kingdom: "—therefore, in forming the morals of young princes, more pains are to be taken than with the sons of the vulgar. —THE GULISTAN OF SADI.
