Her Doctor said, Take Peps HAD BRONCHIAL COUGH AND SORE CHEST. Peps have won high praise from the medical profession. It was on her doctor's advice that Mrs. I. Smith, of 94, Dens Road, Dundee, first tried Peps, which have now completely cured her severe bronchitis. At the beginnisg of last winter," con- fided Mrs. Smith to a local pressman, during my husband's last illness I sat up all night beside him for a whole week. The windows of the room had to be kept open, and there was a draught through. I caught a severe cold, and afterwards suffered very much from a sore chest, and coughed almo-st ceaselessly. I had a nasty sensation of suffocating, and a raw, irri- tating and inflamed throat. It was bronchitis. For it my doctor first tried the usual bottles of medicine, but these did me no good. I got very weak and low-spirited, and had difficulty in doing mu housework. Left with my childres to look after, however, I deter- mined not to give way if possible, but my chest and throat got so sore, and I was so shaken with coughing, that at last I broke down altogether, and had to stay in bed. I thought I was in for a severe illness. My son was so alarmed at my condition that he went to another doctor and explained my case to him. This doctor strongly advised my son to get me some Peps. They were, he said, the finest remedy for throat and chest ailments he had ever met with, and he recommended Peps to all his patients. Accordingly my son bought me a box, of Peps. The first Peps tablet I put in my mouth stopped the coughing, and greatly eased my breathing. I went on using Peps, which cut the phlegm, so that I got it up easily and without having to cough until I was ex- hausted. The moment a fit of coughing came on the breathing of Peps fumes into my chest stopped it, besides soothing the throat, and easing my poor chest. The good Peps did my throat gradually extended to my lungs, and at length I was quite rid of the bronchitis. I am confident that Peps alone cured me, and that they explain the excellent health I have now enjoyed for some months." am

Ton-Pentre Police Court. Monday.—Before the Stipendiary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), Alderman Richard Lewis, Alderman E. H. Davies, Alderman Wm. Morgan. Messrs. D. W. Davies, Enoch Davies, and W. T. Jones. STOLEN TIME. David Henry Wood, a young collier, of Porth, was brought up on remand charged with sealing a watch, value £ 1, from George Newman, a fellow-lodger at 7, America Place, Porth. Otto Faller, pawnbroker, Pontypridd, said that prisoner pledged the watch in the name of Thomas Williams, and 10s. Was advanced upon it. Charged by P.C. Ryan, prisoner said that he knew nothing of the watch. Prisoner now pleaded guilty to the theft, and was fined 30s.. or one month in default. HIS DUTY TO INQUIRE. William Jones, proprietor of the Rhondda Dining Rooms, situated at 182, Ystrad Road, Pentre, was summoned for keeping his house open after licensed hours. P.C. Rowe said that at 11.20 p.m. on Saturday, 9th inst., he saw a boy in defendant's shop eating cakes and drink- ing lemonade. In a room behind the shop were seven men, also eating and drink- ing. Asked why he kept open after 11 p.m., defendant said that he thought he was allowed to do so until 12 o'clock. The men did not leave until 11.40. Defendant said that if he had broken the law that night, he had broken it since he opened the shop three months ago. He had never been warned, nor did his license specify what time he was to close. The Stipendiary said that it was his duty to make inquiries on this head, and imposed a fine of 10s. PAWNBROKER HEAVILY FINED. Henry Cardash, pawnbroker, Tony- pandy, was charged with receiving an article in pledge from a child under 14 years of age, in contravention of the Pawnbrokers' Act. P.C. Thorburn said that from infor- mation received, he visited defendant's shop in company with a boy named Thos. Haines. Witness questioned defendant about a coat pledged in July, and which was believed to be stolen property. Defen- dant told his assistant to look up the books, and found that the coat had been pledged on 27th July. Witness then asked defendant how he accounted for taking a coat from a boy under 14, and he made no reply. Witness also questioned Haines as to whether he had been asked any questions about his age by Cardash, and he replied, "No." A second charge of a similar character was also preferred against defendant, the offence in this case being the acceptance of a coat is pledge from Mary Jane Blake, aged 12 years, on another date. The evidence was similar to that in the first charge. Mary Jane Blake corroborated the officer's evidence. Witness said that the coat was given her by Tommy Haines (the lad mentioned in the first charge), who also gave her a note bearing the follow- ing Please give me some coppers on this coat for butter and tea.—Mrs. Haines." Defendant pleaded guilty to a technical breach of the Act, which only came into force in April last. The bov Haines had been in the habit of bringing goods to pawn to this particular shop for his mother previous to the Act coming into force. The Bench held that the case had been proved in both charges, and it was a very bad case, and they were intent upon stopping this kind of thing. A fine of £ 10 in respect of the second charge was imposed, and an order for costs in respect of the first. A QUESTION OF TIME. A rather unusual application was made by Mr. S. Owen Edwards, Tonypandy, to discharge an order against Edgar Oullen, collier, Llwynypia, who was ordered to pay a contribution towards the mainten- ance of his wife and child on 27th Sep- tember last. Mr. James Phillips opposed the application. The grounds for the application were as follow. On 5th July last, the applicant was summoned by his wife for desertion, and the case was adjourned for three months to enable the parties to arrive at a settlement. Applicant took the period stated to mean three calendar months, and had instructed his solicitor to repre- sent him on October 4th. To his surprise, however, he found from a newspaper report that the case had been heard the previous week, and an order made. Mr. Edwards also stated that Mrs. Cullen made several statements at that hearing which amounted to gross perjury. Mr. Phillips contended that the Bench had no power to discharge the order, as there was no fresh evidence as required by the section. The Stipendiary then intimated that he would not go into the merits of the case that day until he had satisfied himself that he had the power to grant the appli- cation. After Mr. Phillips had addressed the Bench on the question of law, the appli- cation was adjourned for a week, on con- dition that Cullen paid the arrears due since the order was made. WILFUL DAMAGE, AT PENTRE. James Williams, Andrew Worthington, Walter Lucas D. J. Jones, Wm. Rees, J. Jones and D. J. Davies, all of Pentre, were summoned for wilful damage. Mr. T. Millward, Pentre, appeared for defen- dants. PS. James said that on the 13th inst. a number of zinc sheets and a quantity of timber were taken from the Griffin Field. He visited the houses round the place, and found zinc and timber in defen- dant's gardens. They were under a mis- apprehension, and thought that they could take the fencing, as they had been told that Mr. Morgan, the owner, had given his permission. Ray Morgan, son of the owner, said that he had been sent by his father to fetch Dart of the fence. After he had taken a cartload, he returned and found most of the fence gone. As to giving per- mission, he had told a certain woman that she could have a rotten log that was lying near, and no more. Mr. Morgan, owner of the field, said that the value of the fencing was E35. D. J. Jones was dismissed, while the other defendants were discharged on pay- ment of costs and replacing the zinc and timber taken. VARIA. John Timmins was fined 10s. for leaving. his horse unattended at Gelli. Albert Russ was fined 2s. 6d. for driving a horse and cart at Gelli with only one light. } Owen Williams, Cwmparc, and Frank Taylor, Gilfach Goch, were fined 2s. 6d. each for allowing the chimneys of their houses to catch fire.

Cricket. The annual general meeting of the Ogmore Valley Cricket Club was held on Tuesday last at the headquarters, Ogmore Valley Hotel, Mr. Harry Treharne in the çhair. The Secretary (Mr. Herbert Madley) presented a balance sheet for the past season, which shows a balance on the right side. The club must be congratulated on its financial position. During the past twelve months a sum exceeding £ 50 has been expended. Amongst other expenditures a sum of R40 has been spent in preparing a, new pitch, which, it is hoped, will induce clubs of good standing to visit the Valley. It was decided to hold the annual supper during next month, at which the presentation bats for top averages will be handed over to Mr. Ivor Evans and Mr. Tom Webster. Rhondda Naturalists' Society. The members of the above Society opened their lecture season on Wednes- day, the 20th inst., when the first of a series of lectures, entitled The Wonders and Romance of Insect Life," was delivered at the Workmen's Hall by Mr. Fred Enoch, F.L.S., F.E.S. The chair was taken by the Rev. Canon Lewis. Some inconvenience was caused owing to the lecturer failing to arrive until nearly nine o'clock. In the meantime, the audience were entertained with some living pic- tures." The lecture, in consequence, was greatly curtailed. Mr. Enoch has studied insect life for over a period of forty years, and his lec- ture was illustrated with beautiful lantern slides, taken entirely from personal obser- vations. Mr. Enoch is to be congratu- lated upon the lucid and interesting manner in which he presented this dry subject, and although his rather late arrival did not tend to please the audi- ence, he very soon had his hearers in a good temper by his humorous and witty remarks.

Porth Police Court. Thursday.—Before the Stipendiary (Mr. D. LIeufer Thomas), Messrs. David Thomas, Wm. Evans, and Thos. Griffiths. A WISE PRECAUTION. William Collins, a Pontypridd collier, pleaded guilty to a charge of drunken- ness. He confided to the Bench that he had only come to Wales three months ago from Ireland, and meeting one of his friends from "the owld country" on Saturday, celebrated the event by getting drunk. The Stipendiary: You might meet some of your friends from Ireland some time again, and the best thing for you to do to fortify yourself is to take the pledge. Defendant: I will, your Worship. Defendant was thereupon discharged. SOMETHING ABOUT 1710.' John Long, an aged Dinas collier, pro- vided an amusing interlude. Long was charged with being drunk and creating a disturbance outside the Boot Hotel, Dinas. This defendant denied, stating that he had been refused any more drink in the house because there was a bother there. The Stipendiary: What was the bother about? Defendant: I don't know. Something about 1710," I think (laughter). The Stipendiary It will be better for you in future to take a little less drink. Defendant: I'll have to do it (laugh- ter). I have my mother to keep. The Stipendiary: We'll reduce it for the next fortnight, at any rate, by fining. you 10s. A BUTCHER'S ADVENTURE. Daniel Jones, butcher, Pontygwaith, summoned Stephen Davies, collier, for assault. Mr. A. T. James (Messrs. Walter Morgan, Bruce, Nicholas, and James) appeared for complainant, and Mr. Hiratio Phillips, Ferndale, for defendant. Mr. James, opening the case, said that complainant was taking a basket of meat to the Penrhys Hotel, Pontygwaith. He passed defendant on the road, and he then appeared to be on friendly terms. As complainant was waiting for his basket in the hall of the Penrhys Hotel, defen- dant came in. and after alleging that complainant had put between him (defen- dant) and his wife, struck him very severely). Before proceeding further with the case, Mr. Phillips said that defendant was prepared to express an apology for what had taken place, and asked that it should not proceed. Both parties were eminently respectable, and to continue the case would only widen the breach between them. After a consultation with his client, Mr. James said he was prepared to agree to this course, and defendant was bound over to keep the peace and pay the costs. A DIRE THREAT. Harry Corbert, stoker, Ynyshir, was summoned by his wife, Fanny, for per- sistent cruelty. Comnlainant said that she left her hus- band on Thursday last as the result of his conduct a fortnight previous. He struck her in the face, and ordered her to clear out, as he was bringing a house- keeper to take charge of the house. Two months ago he threatened to strangle her in bed. Corroborative evidence was given by a lodger. Defendant admitted striking his wife a blow in the face, and an order of 12s. a week, with custody of three youngest children, was made.
Woman's Battles with Ulcers, PAINFUL TROUBLE ENDED BY ZAM-BUK. When the skin-tissue breaks down and sloughs away into ulcers—a common ex- perience amongst womenc-Zam-Buk is the one remedy that will stop the festering and build up new, healthy tissue. Mrs. Emma Marshall, of 7, The Grove, Reading, told a local reporter a personal experience that proves this. My left ankle began to ache, and felt very weak and tired," said Mrs. Marshall. In a week or two it had swelled alarm- ingly, and the skin all round got dis- coloured. For three months the doctor attended me, and a trained nurse came regularly to dress the ankle. Besides using various ointments the nurse applied hot-water bandages to the swollen ankle. The skin burst, leaving three big sores. These sores festered, and the burning pain was awful. I felt as though the flesh was being drawn from the leg bone. If I touched the ulcers it was as if pins and needles were being stuck into my flesh. For months I never could sleep longer than an hour each night. I became so run-down that I was sent into the country near Woking. My ankle remained in a bad state, and I suffered so severely all the time I was away that I thought I should never see home again. The ulcers spread up my leg, eating away both skin and flesh. Ordinary ointments and salves proved useless; they did not even relieve the nain. the nain. Whilst staying in the country I was persuaded to let Zam-Buk have a chance of healing my ankle. At this time the ulcers were so angry-looking that I was afraid of something more serious develop- ing. But Zam-Buk soon brought im- provement, and caused me to hope for a cure at last. Thanks to this rare balm's soothing influence, I began to get good sleep at night, and during the day I felt very little pain. The inflammation and swelling disanneared. and the ulcers round the ankles dried up. When the holes caused by the ulcers had filled up with flesh, Zam-Buk grew a new, clear skin otfer all the old sore places. When I returned to Reading it was to surprise my friends by the ease with which I walked about after being; crippled so long. This splendid Zam-Buk had made a complete cure."
Abolition of the Poor Law. Far-Reaching Recommendations, [By A. DAVIES, Tylorstown.] The Commission appointed to investi- gate into the administration of the Poor Law has concluded its official work. The result is now placed on Government records, and it has also been published in two reports, called respectively tha Majority and Minority Reports. All the Commissioners declared that the present administration of the Poor Law, on the whole, was wasteful and demoralising; that the Boards of Guar- dian.^ through no fault of their own, did not provide adequately and wisely either for the sick, the aged, or the able-bodied; and that neither the aims fióf' the methods, the aims nor the traditions of the Poor Law were such as to be suitable for the twentieth century. To deal adequately with the Poor Law, with all its ramifications, has proved a failure, in spite of continued Parliamentary atten- tion for the last quarter of a century. The both reports are unanimous in their description of the terrible condition of the poor in the United Kingdom and the inability of the Poor Law Authority to prevent their suffering, which must neces- sarily increase rather than decrease the relief. In view of the inadequacy to meet the conditions of the various classes of the poor, both reports give the funda- mental principles upon which reform should be made, dealing with the various conditions by which treatment should be administered. The propositions of the Majority Report were declared by Mr. George Lansbiiry recently as being simply setting Humpty- Dumpty together again." The terms "Workhouse" and "Poor Law" are saturated with hatred and dislike, and in order to make them more respectable, the Majority Report suggests that these institutions should be called by a new name, the Public Assistance." The present condition of the Poor Law is likened unto a bad stock-in-trade. It must be constructed as a new stock, and dispensed under a new title, thereby making it attractive; but, severtheless, it still will carry on its old sins, viz., demoralisation and wastefulness. We believe that the whole show must ulti- mately be wound up and labelled now and for ever a disease of intolerance. We are concerned chiefly with the Minority Report, because it embodies similar principles* to those introduced in the Budget^—" Social Reconstruction "—. though its application is more far-reach- ing. The Minority Report is a. crusade against destitution. Here are the eight points of this new Charter of the Poor:- (1) To abolish the Boards of Guardians; to substitute for parochial relief an en- tirely different method of provision for those needing public aid; and to get rid of pauperism, both the name and thing. (2) To set os foot a systematic crusade against destitution in all its forms; against the destitution caused by un- employment the destitution caused by old age; the destitution caused by feeble- mindedness and lunacy; the destitution caused by ill-health and disease j and the destitution caused by neglected infancy and neglected childhood. (3) To empower and require the Local Education Authority to search out all children of school age within its district who are destitute of proper nurture and to secure to them a fitting upbringing. (4) To empower and require the Local Health Authority to search out all sick persons within its district who are desti- tute of medical attendance, and to apply appropriate treatment either in their homes or suitable institutions. (5) To empower and require the Local Lunacy Authority to search out all feeble- minded or mentally defective persons destitute of proper care, and control within it's district, and to make appropriate pro- vision for them. (6) To empower and require the Local Pension Authority to search out all per- sons who are destitute from old age in its district, and to provide old age pen- sions for such of them as are able and willing to live decently thereon. (7) To empower and require a new National Authority to search out all able- bodied persons destitute of employment; to take the necessary steps both to diminish, as far as practicable, the social disease of unemployment, and to supply proper maintenance and training for those who are unemployed and unprovided for. (8) To empower and require all these specialised and preventive Authorities to enforce, by counsel and advice, by the sustained pressure of public opinion, and where needed by process of law, the obligation of all able-bodied persons to maintain themselves and their families in due health and efficiency. We find that the conditions tolerated to-day is such that we have two million persons in re- ceipt of relief in any one year, and that it accounts for twenty million pounds ex- penditure in any one year. The fact that men, womes and children are deprived of the means to obtain the bare necessaries of life must be a manifestation of social disease. Reports are to hand showing beyond dispute that the physical condition of a large percentage of our children is simply deplorable, arising chiefly from neglected childhood. We are surrounded to-day by a medical system which is not altogether commend- able. It hardly needs pointing out that the really curative work of a club doctor is seldom entertained, because it is said that they have not the time to bother about these things. Further, there is no idea of prevention. The crowded waiting- rooms of our surgeries must tend to spread infectious diseases, and injure the health of the patient. The salutation of this class of doctor is generally of this manner: "Good day; what's the matter? Let me feel your pulse. Oh all. right, send the bottle down," and they impress the patients to come to the surgery. One doctor is credited with the statement that they treat patients in accordance with their palates rather than with their symptoms! A representative of the British Medical Association testified that the existing monopoly was usdesirable we think they should have a choice of all the medical men in the district." It is now a matter for the neople to decide whether the burden must be borne longer, and give only inadequate relief, or emancipate the destitute and paupers from such con- ditions as suggested above. If the latter, your efforts and support are urgently needed in making this popular.
