Lecturer in Education, Dr. Abel Jones' Important Appointment. Dr. Abel J. Jones, B.Sc., has just been appointed Lecturer in Education at the University College. Cardiff. Mr. Jones, who is a Tonypandy "boy," has had a aingularly successful career at the Uni- versities of Cambridge, Jena, and Wales, having obtained the degrees of B.A. (with First Class Honours), Ph.D., and B.Sc. at the respective Universities. Dr. Jones is the author of Y Llyfraui Elfennol," the prize series published by the Welsh Congregational Union, and has with his brother, the Rev. D. R. Jones, M.A., Bethlehem, Cardiff, edited Cnwedlau Cymru Fu," an adaptation of Welsh tales for school use. DR. ABEL J. JONES. In June last, when he secured First Olass Honours in the Moral Sciences Tripos at the Cambridge University, we wrote of him:—" The career of Mr. Jones has undoubtedly qualified him for one of the highest educational posts the country can offer him. Having had years of ex- perience in practical teaching, coupled with his brilliant academic career, he is thus placed in a position pre-eminently fitting him for the higher positions in the educational world. Not only is he a young man of high accomplishments, but his private life has also been such to win the warmest admiration and emulation of hundreds of other young men in this great Rhondda of ours. Of late years, Wales, in common with England, has devoted too much attention and bestowed too much praise upon men whose talents lie in the direction of athletics, proving in a measure that the mania of muscularity is domineering the minds of young people. Mr. Jones has shined, not at the wrong end,' but in those qualities which fit men and women for the- responsible duties of the strenuous life."
The Secret of the Alps. A NEW AND WONDERFUL MEDICINE FOR THROAT, CHEST, & LUNGS TO BREATHE. In Southern Europe, particularly on the forest-clad slopes of the Alps, coughs and colds Are the astonishing exception and not the rule. The Swiss, shepherd owes his robustness to always breathing in the rich, balsamic air from the pine trees. Life and health greatly depend on the air we breathe; and it is the impuro and germ-laden town air that makes bronchitis and consumption such deadly perils in our midst. < In this very thought of the origin of most chest troubles has lain the secret how to set about remedying them to achieve real lasting results. So called cough-mixtures are based on a mistaken idea they often only succeed in giving the appearance of relief in the chest by drugging the rest of the body, which is a dangerous, and in the end, profitless habit. After all, is it not absurd to expect to put right something wrong with the lungs by swallowing liquid drugs into the stomach—especially when the stomach possesses no direct passage to the chest? There is no such thing as swallowing a liquid or solid-be it food or medicine— into the lungs, which are what we breathe with, not eat with. At the same time, before science could do away with drugs—opium, morphia, laudanum, etc., which prey mercilessly on their unhappy victims-it had to discover some better remedy on safe and different lines. This away-with-drugs remedy has been found at last. In those little silver-jacketed Peps tablets we now have a new and unique medicine, free from harmful substances like opium, and one which is capable of yielding fumes that can be breathed straight down the throat and into the furthest corner of the lungs where disease-germs are apt to lurk. By the aid of the Peps tablets the bene- fits of the famed pine woods are virtually transported to our very homes, because each tablet is a, highly concentrated brown disc which, upon being dissolved in the mouth, releases those balsamic fumes which are breathed directly into the chest and lungs. It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of such a discovery, for the effect of Peps is two-fold: First, they completely allay the irritation and tickling .—i.e., the sub-acute inflammation of the delicate membrane which lines the air- pipes and lungs; and secondly, they kill or destroy the germs of disease lodging in tissues far out of reach of liquid medi- cine. That tickling phlegm is loosened and easily coughed up, the breathing tubes are ,cleared and healed, disease-germs are destroyed; bronchitis, however old or neglected, is quietly but surely got rid of; and the lungs and chest are afforded valuable protection against pleurisy, pneumonia, inflammation, and those other chest complaints that are the bane of our changeable weather. A few Peps tablets before going to sleep, and occasionally during th day, will end the most hacking cough, make one's breathing easy, and bring comfort to the chest. At the same time there is security in the freedom from dangerous and nerve-depressing drugs. » Peps bring A Pine Forest in Every Home when one cannot think of going off to the famous Alps directly that old winter coueli returns, or that half- forgotten chest weakness once again asserts its grim reality, Beware of cheap and useless imitations.

New Bethania Chapel, Tonypandy. Opening Services. The past week has been an important one in the history of Mid-Rhondda Calvinistic Methodism, and especially so to the members of that denomination who have hitherto worshipped at Bethania Chapel, Tonypandy. For some years the members have felt that the old chapel was too small and also in other ways un- suitable for the increased membership and needs of the people, so steps were taken towards erecting a new one. A site was obtained near Pandy Square, and plans for the building were prepared by Mr. R. S. Griffiths, M.S.A., Tonypandy. The firm of Messrs. Turner, Cardiff, secured the contract of building, and the result reflects the greatest credit on all concerned. The new chapel is large enough to accommodate nearly a thousand people, contains two classrooms, a library and a comfortable vestry to seat about two hundred. The building is classic in BETHANIA CHAPEL. Photo by] [Levi Ladd, Tonypandy style, the inside walls being divided into bays with panelled and moulded pilasters, the top being beautifully decorated with Corinthian caps. The woodwork through- out is of pitch pine, with headings and dressings of mahogany, teak and ebony, the whole suggesting a high standard of elegance and comfort. Some of the foremost ministers of the Methodist denomination had been en- gaged to ta&e part in the opening ser- vices, the full list being as follows: — Rev. John Morgan, pastor; Principal Owen Prys, M.A., Aberystwyth; Rev. S. T. Jones, Conway (late Rhyl); Rev. J. Morgan Jones, Cardiff; Rev. Rhys Mor- gan, Llanddewibrefi; Rev. M. H. Ellis, Trealaw; Rev. E. Richards (C.), Tony- pandy Rev. W. S. Jones, (B.), Llwyny- pia; Rev. T. E. Davies, Clydach Yale; Rev. Ambrose Williams. Tonypandy and the Rev. William Lewis, Pontypridd. The first service was held on Saturday afternoon, when the ceremony of unveil- ing the memorial stones was performed. REV. JOHN MORGAN. Pastor of the Church. The inclement weather, no doubt. pre- vented many from being present, but under the circumstances, the gathering was a very large one. Among the minis- ters present we noticed the Revs. John Morgan, pastor- M. H. Ellis (C.M.), Tre- alaw; James Nicholas (B..), Tonypandy; W. Ambrose Williams (C.M.), Tonypandy; T. Lloyd (C.M.), Ystrad-Rhondda; T. G. Jenkyn (C.), Llwynypia; E. Richards (C.), Tonypandy; T. Powell (C.M.), Cwm- dare; W. S. Jones (B.), Llwynypia; E. Walter Thomas (0.), Tonypandy; T. Morris (C.), Clydach Vale; and Dr. D. M. Phillips, Tylorstown. The pastor, Rev. John Morgan, com- mencing the service, asked those present to join in singing an appropriate hymn, after which the Rev. J. Nicholas led in prayer. The unveiling ceremony was then proceeded with, and was performed by the following ladies and gentlemen:- Mr. T. Phillips, Bryn Nant, Tonypandy Mr. David Price, Brynheulog, Tony- pandy; Mrs. R. S. Griffiths, Clydach Vale; Mrs. Dr. Morgan, Llwynypia (in memory of the late Mr. Isaac Morgan, Caeglas, Tonypandy); Mrs. A. Morgan, Caeglas, Tonypandy; Miss Margaretta Williams (in memory of Mr. Wm. Wil- liams, Wain House, Tonypandy); Mrs. Gwen Rees, Cambrian House, Tonypandy Miss Maggie Jane Watkins, Pandy Square, Tonypandy; Mr. Thomas Jones Paris House, Tonypandy; and Mr. Edward Jenkins, Radvr (in memory of his wife) When this ceremony was completed, the chapel was entered and a short public service was held, presided over by the pastor. In his opening remarks, he stated that the chief object of the meeting was to give people an opportunity of seeing the new building and to speak about it. He considered that the day was an im- portant one in the history of Bethania, and trusted that the erection of the new chapel would be the means of furthering the cause of Calvinistic Methodism and the Christian Church generally. With regard to the memorial stones^ he was pleased to state that those who had un- veiled them had given generously towards the funds, cheques ranging from fifty to two hundred guineas having been handed to him. The Rev. M. H. Ellis, who followed, congratulated the church on the work done, and was pleased that the rich mem- bers had done so well. He also reminded the poorer people that had a share in the work of maintaining the church, and that small contributions were ac- knowledged and blessed by God. It was a beautiful building, and the purpose of its erection-that of the saving of souls— was also beautiful. Many souls had been saved in the old Bethania, and he hoped the new Bethania would continue the good work. Mr. D. M. Williams, Tonypandy, who has worked hard and rendered signal ser- vice during the erection of the chapel, wa.s next called upon to give a short account of the movement. He stated that many promises had been made at the commencement, and he was pleased to say that they had been largely ful- filled. During the short time that they had been collecting towards the new debt, a sum of £1,280 had been realised. Rich and poor alike had contributed freely, but there was still much to do to liquidate the debt. Mr. Edward Jenkins, Radyr, who fol- lowed, traced the growth of the Methodist cause at Llwynypia from its commence- ment at the Schools to its present posi- tion. He felt sure that the departed ones whom he knew and remembered, must rejoice that the cause of God had 3 t succeeded so well, and hoped that the glory of the new Bethania, would eclipse that of the old. Mr. R. S. Griffiths, D.C., the archi- tect, stated he had very pleasant recol- lections of the old Bethania, and was pleased at having had the work of design- ing the new chapel. It was difficult to break off old connections, and it had always been hie, Vperionoe that the older members of a church always wished to have the old building renovated, rather than erect a new one. Still, it was a duty to provide commodious chapels when necessary, in order to receive greater blessings from God. Mr. Griffiths added that he had never dealt with more honourable people than those of Bethania Chapel Committee, and also paid a high tribute to the contractors and workmen, who had done so much to realise his ideals in the building of the chapel. Mr. James Turner, who represented the firm of contractors, TelOHankful for the kind words which had been spoken in appreciation of the work done. The con- tractors, architect, and chapel committee had worked harmoniously together, with the result that very few complaints had been made during the whole period of erection. Everyone had been courteous and sympathetic, and his sincere hope was that the new church would be abun- dantly blessed and be the means of saving sinners for the glory of God. Dr. Phillips, Tyiorstown, stated that only one thing was wanting, and that was a large organ for the chapel. They must not complain that the chapel cost too much; no place could be made too beau- tiful for the worship of God. He referred to the beautiful churches he. had visited in Cairo, Jerusalem and Damascus, and held them as an example to the Christian Church of our country. The singing of a hymn brought the afternoon proceedings to a close. In the evening the chapel was crowded, and excellent sermons were delivered by the Revs. John Morgan (pastor) and S. T. Jones, Conway. The services were continued during the week. The bills of quantities for the new chapel were prepared by Messrs. Lewis and Mor- gan, architects, Tonypandy. The build- ing is heated on the high-pressure system by Messrs. E. Hampton and Co., Cardiff. Rhondda County School, Porth. Twenty-one pupils of the above school have passed a Matriculation Examination this year this probably forming a record number for any one school in one year in the Principality. Emrys Evans (Tre- alaw) and Richard W. Rees (Clydach Vale) completed their Matriculation last September. Eight others have passed in four out of five subjects. The following scholarships have been won this year:-R. S. Lang (Tonyrefail), R40 and University fees, awarded on the results of the O.W. Board Honours Cer- tificate Examination: Donald R.

On Saturday last, a match was played between the Llangynwyd and Pontygwaith Hockey Clubs respectively, at Maesteg, and ended in a victory for the former team. A new chapel is to be erected shortly by the Methodists in place of the present one, whose foundation is giving way.
Williamstown. With a very interesting function in the form of a social tea, the Williamstown Young People's League opened its season on Saturday last. Members and visitors attended in comfortable numbers, and sat down to a very enjoyable repast, Mr. Dd. Jones, Williamstown, being the caterer.

Additional officers were appointed under the Hon. Surgeon, Dr. J. G. McCaughty, and First Ambu- lance Officer P.S. Evan Bowent who have both taken great interest in training the Brigade.
I Cwmparc. The Evening Schools session has com- menced, but it cannot be said by any stretch of imagination that there has been a frenzied rush of knowledge- thirsters to "drink deep of the Pyro- haean spring."

Tonypandy. At the English Congregational Chapel, Tonypandy, on Thursday last, the Rev. H. Elvet Lewis, M.A., London, delivered a lecture, entitled "The Father of the Little Brothers," the father being Francis of Assissi and the little bro- thers his followers. Mr. Tom John M.A., presided. The main theme of the lecture showed how Francis, the son of a wealthy cloth merchant of the citv of Assissi, in Italy, 700 years ago gave up all his wealth and riches for poverty after having heard (as he believed) Umst s voice saying to him, Build Mv Church. He then went out into the world, poverty stricken, and went amono-ist the poor, preaching and explaining Christ s Gospel. After going about the' country for a time, Francis gathered disciples, who also preached the Gospel amongst the poor.
Llwynypia. The annual harvest thanksgiving fes- tivals of the churches of the district were brought to a close by impressive services held at St. Andrew's Parish Church on Thursday and Sunday last.

I Porth Chamber of Trade. Councillor Thomas Griffiths, J.P., pre- sided over the monthly meeting of the above Chamber, held on Wednesday even- ing last at the Washington Hotel. Apropos of the unsatisfactory reply of the Rhondda Urban District Council t. the request of the Chamber for better lighting at Porth and district, it wae decided that the Secretary write tkt Council again, pointing out that the streets were very badly lighted up after business hours in the evening and on Sunday nights. The Secretary reported that Captain E. Thomas, of the Porth Fire Brigade, had met the sub-committee which had been appointed to deal with the questioa. of the water supply in Hannah Street in case of a eenous fire breaking out, and that the committee were satisfied that there was sufficient pressure. The fire appliances were, however, under con- sideration by the Urban Council at pre- sent. with regard to the Chamber's appeal to Mr. Beasley re the improvement of Llwyncelyn Bridge, the following letter was read: — Dear Sir,—With further reference to your letter of 19th March last, I regret that I have not been in a position to reply earlier owing to pressure of other important business and the necessity of looking up old documents to ascertain our exact position with regard to this bridge. I now find that it is an accommodation work which was originally constructed for the landowner (from whom, we have had no complaint) as a means of giving access to the agricultural land on the eastern side of the line, and the recent development of this land for building purposes does not put on the Company any obligation to maintain the bridge and the road otherwise than as an accommo- dation. I would suggest that you ap- proach the landowner and the District Council on the matter.—Yours faithfully, A. Beasley." Mr. Wm. Evans concurred with the suggestion of Mr. Beasley, and moved that the Secretary be instructed to write to the District Council, pointing out these facte. The motion was carried unani- mously. A letter was also read from the Fede- rated Chambers of Trade, notifying the Chamber that the autumnal meeting of the Federation would be held at Dowlais on Thursday, October 28th, and request- ing the Chamber to elect delegates. Inasmuch as the date of this meet- ing synchronised with that of their own annual meeting, it was decided, on the motion of Mr. Wm. Evans, that the Sec. retary write to Mr. Isaac Edwards (secre- tary of the Federated Chambers) regret- ting that the Porth Chamber would not be able to send representatives to the conference owing to both meetings occur- ring on the same date.

Fox in a Garden. Exciting Kill at Ton. There was an exciting finish to the run of the Tynewydd Hunt on Tuesday after- noon. Near Ton a fox went to earth, and was dug out. Given a good start, it made in the direction of the river, and when hard pressed jumped the rails of Mr. Thomas' (Ap Tydvil) garden in Maindy Road. There was great excitement, many persons running from their houses to see the sport. The dogs jumped over all obstacles and killed on the green.

Fasting Man at Tonypandy. Mons. Victor Beaute, a Swiss, who has attracted considerable attention by his power to abstain from food for extra- ordinary lengths of time, will commence a 31-days' fast at Darter's Wonderland 1, Dunraven Street, Tonypandy, on Satur- day, the 9th inst., at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. He will be confined in a specially built glass panelled room and under constant supervision. The only doorway will bear a distinctive seal, which will only be broken on the occasion of the daily visit of the medical man. Beaute purposes during this lengthy fast to con- sume nothing but Welsh" Hills Soda Water and Lemonade, as supplied by Messrs. Thomas and Evans from their Llwynypia Works. The task is a stupen- dous one, but Beaute has previously accomplished similar feats for varied periods in England and on the Continent. He is by profession a chemist, and adopted fasting in the first place to overcome the inconvenience he had been suffering from excessive corpulency. The doctor's bulletin, recording his condition, will be exhibited each day at the doors.
A LOCAL ENTERPRISE. Not many years ago the Rhondda was accounted exceedingly dull as a. place of abode. Dwelling-houses were in many cases unhealthy, the means of transit were antiquated, whilst shopping accom- modation was certainly limited. To-day, however, in Tonypandy the old order has changed. Business people are alive to the possibilities, and tradespeople seem to vie one with the other in making their shop attractive. Messrs. Dunn and Sons, the famous boot and shoe people, have now opened commodious new boot stores in Dunraven Street, near the New Empire, Tonypandy. The premises have been fit- ted most luxuriously, and are certain to please the eye of the most fastidious. Messrs. Dunn and Sons are well known throughout the length and breadth of the land, and their motto is value for money." During the next few days r striking advertisement will be given away free by them.
