Concerning YOUR EYES So Few People have eyes that are perfect, both for near and far vision, that everybody should have their sight tested accurately on the first symptoms of eye-strain. It is a Great Mistake to put off visiting an Optician until the eyes, from sheer neglect, can no longer do their work. Common Spectacles chosen at random, can do considerable damage to the eyesight; therefore, always visit a competent optician when you feel the need of spectacles, when you will have your eyes tested by scientific methods. You Lose Nothing as no charge is made for testing the sight; and if glasses are not necessary you will be told so. Chidren's Eyes should always be examined if they are at all dull or backward in learning, as this is frequently due to difficulty in seeing, and many a child,apparently dull-witted, becomes quick and bright after being fitted with proper glasses. Particular Attention is given to frame-fitting, so that the full benefit can be I derived from the lenses, which is impossible with ill-fitting frames.

Mid-Rhondda and District Chamber of Trade. A Category of Complaints. The usual monthly meeting of the above Chamber of Trade was held on Wednes- day evening of last week at Wellington Chambers, Tonypandy, Mr. J. Owen Jones presiding. Arising out of the minutes of the last meeting, the Secretary stated that no reply had been received from the Post Office Authorities in relation to the in- quiry re telegraph offices for Tonypandy and Blaenclydach. A surveyor had been over the ground, but no report of his findings had been given to the Chamber. Mr. Noah Meredith thought the matter should not be allowed to rest, and that the Chamber should continue in their request, as it was urgently needed. It was proposed by Mr. Llewellyn Evans, and seconded by Mr. Meredith, that a deputation be sent to interview the Forth postmaster in relation to the affair. T.V.R. MATTERS. Arising out of the correspondence a letter was read from Mr. Beasley (general manager, Taff Vale Railway) in relation to the long delay that excursion passengers to and from London experience in the early hours of the morning by having to Wait at Cardiff for a considerable time IT before they can get a convenient train to enable them to proceed on their journey to Mid-Rhondda. Mr, Beasley stated tha.1) the delay did not SOctif to single-day I passengers, but only to those that went by the 2, 4, or 8 days trips, and the reason for the delay in their case was that therie was not sufficient passengers to run a special train, but he promised to attend to the matter and see what could be done to lessen the grievance. In relation to claims for goods not being received in a satisfactory condition, it was decided to get specific cases of claims from the various members and sub- mit the same to Mr. Venn, the station- master of Tonypandy and Trealaw. BRAKE CHARGES. A letter was read from the District Council stating, in reply to the complaint of the Chamber regarding the over- charging by local brake-drivers, that fixed fares for distances and time were attached to every vehicle plying for hire. JUDGE'S HALL. The Secretary of the Chamber (Mr. John Rees) stated that he had written to Mr. Rhys Williams, Miskin Manor, sug- gesting to him that the committee of management of the Judge's Hall should be selected from both sides of the river. A reply had been received from Mr. Wil- liams stating that the matter should have his consideration. Several members of the Chamber thought the Secretary's suggestion was a very important one. INCORPORATION. One of the chief items on the agenda was the oppointment of three representa- tives to act on the Chamber's behalf on the Incorporation -Committee. Mr. J. Owen Jones, in putting the matter before the meeting, urged the members to give the subject the impor- tant consideration it deserved, and he hoped they would select somebody that had the matter of Incorporation at heart. It was ultimately decided to appoint the Chairman, Secretary, and Mr. Llew- ellyn Evans (vice-chairman) as members of the committee. PILLAR BOXES. A notice of motion by Mr. Noah Meredith re letter box on Pandy Square called forth a great deal of dis- cussion. Mr. Meredith said that he was sur- prised and astonished that the matter had not received consideration before. He thought that for people living up at Berw Road to go to the Post Office before they could post a letter was very inconvenient, especially in wet weather. We have been here all these years," said Mr. Meredith, and it is ridiculous to think that it should have to be brought on before the Ohamber." Mr. Evan Jones was of opinion that a letter box should be placed in Berw Road. Mr. J. Owen Jones said that the dis- trict had developed so much in late years that it was necessary a pillar box should be placed in Berw Road and Pandy Square. Other members having spoken on the matter, it was decided to draw the atten- tion of the Postal Authorities to the matter. PUBLIC CONVENIENCES. Mr. Evan Jones brought before the meeting the disgraceful state of affairs in regard to public conveniences at Mid- Rhondda. He proposed that the Chamber petition the District Council to provide a suitable convenience at Pandy Square. He also suggested that underground pre- mises be applied for. The proposition was seconded by Mr, Evans (Evans & Griffiths), and unani- mously carried. Mr. Noah Meredith, in supporting the resolution, thought it was time some- thing should be done, and the Chamber should press the matter forward. He stated that at Bargoed one had been erected, and a man was engaged to look after it. To think that a thickly popu- lated district like Mid-Rhondda was lack- ing in that respect was indeed surprising. CHAMBER BANQUET. The report of the Banquet Committee was given, and it was stated that the banquet would be held at the Judge's Hall on Thursday, December '2nd. PARCEL CARRIERS. In reply to a request made by the Chamber, a letter was read from Messrs. Sutton, general carriers, stating that they had made an effort some years ago to establish an agency in Mid-Rhondda, but at that time they had failed to carry the idea into effect as they were unable to make it pay. But at the request of the Chamber, they were agreeable to re-open an agency in the district, providing the Chamber could secure contracts from six customers. It was decided to send six names of tradesmen who would be willing to adopt this course to Messrs. Sutton. The names of two persons desirous of acting as agents for Messrs. Sutton were submitted to the meeting, and it was decided to forward these to the_ company. TRAMWAY EXTENSIONS. The Chairman dealt with a newspaper report of the Rhondda District Council

An Interesting Personality.) A well-known financier (now deceased), whose charitable bequests the public will recall, built up for hinwelf S, reputation for fair ueaiing, by which he became the intimate friend of the best known mem- bers of Society. Everyone is aware that as a lender of money, his methods of doing business were free from those obnoxious traits occasion- ally met with amongst ordinary lenders, and one must attribute his high repu- tation to these very characteristics. The question arises, therefore, Is there any- one to-day who carries on a financial business in the same clean way?" Is there any gentleman, who, recognising that people must occasionally borrow money to meet a pressing matter, can undertake to treat clients in a straight- forward way, with courtesy, tact, and earnestness ? Mr. Wm. Lloyd, of 4, Church Street, Cardiff, is prepared to convince the public that he himself is determined to conduct his business in such a manner. Anyone, be he a nobleman, professional man, business man, or trusted employee, and who, just now, is temporarily in need of money, can apply to Mr. Lloyd, safe in the knowledge that he is a financier who carries on his business honourably and who extends advances upon fair and easy terms, without security, or sureties, and maintaining that strict privacy and con- fidence so essential in such matters. Do you require his services? If so write to him, and ascertain his methods of business. 5042
"South Wales Coal Annual," The seventh annual issue of the South Wales Coal Annual" is to hand, and, like its predecessors, its 400 pages are crammed with excellent information that cannot fail to interest all who depend upon the staple industry of South Wales. Un- like previous issues, the present volume contains the statistics for the eighteen months ending June 30th. 1909, instead of up to December 31st as hitherto, and the publishers hope that this innovation will prove of advantage to its numerous sub- scribers throughout the world. The South Wales Coal Annual was founded in 1903: its object being two- fold, viz., bringing foreign coal buyers more closely in touch, with the develop- ment, working, and the transport of the production of the South Wales coalfield, and to provide in a compact and easily accessible form, the information as to wages, rates, shipment charges and freights required by the coalowner, col- liery manager, exporter, shipowner, and business and profession men whose in- terests are connected with the coal trade. Since the first application, it has now attained the position of being the stan- dard reference book on all matters con- nected with the South Wales coalfield, and its greatly increased circulation, em- bracing as it does the large colliery com- panies, the coal exporters, and principal importers and consumers abroad, is evi- p r dence that it has met a want, and is ful- filling the objects for which it was initiated. Illustrated articles are this year in- cluded on the Crown Preserved Coal Com- pany, the pioneers of the patent fuel trade in South Wales, and on the Alexandra (Newport and South Wales) Docks and Railway Company, the owners of the great group of docks constituting the port of Newport. It also contains exhaustive statistics and information in connection with the production, sale, conveyance and markets of Welsh coal, coke and patent fuel, besides a list of collieries in South Wales and Monmouthshire, with parti- culars of owners, shipping and commer- cial offices, commercial and colliery managers, railways and railway stations serving collieries, number of persons em- ployed, and description of coal worked.

Cambrian Glee Singers. Rousing Reception in America. The Cambrian 'Glee Society, under the conductorship of Mr. John Broad, are having a rousing time in America. Town after town have hailed them as the best body of singers ever heard in those parts, and Mr. Broad, with the wonderful intuition of the Yank, is proclaimed to be one of the finest Welsh conductors of the day. All the artistes come in for lavish praise, but Trevor Watkins, the boy soprano of Ystrad, is the bright shining star of the whole company. He is described as a wonder, and without doubt the most correct and fascinating boy singer in America-" At Harrisburg, the choir sang before Governor Stuart, and he is reported to have been delighted with the programme of the Welsh singers. At the same place also Madame Dora Dark, Cardiff was offered 1,000 dollars a year by a church to sing on Sundays. The offer was refused.
Ruskin College, Oxford. Remodelling Proposals. The Recent Dispute. At Oxford on Saturday, a conference was held which was convened by the authorities of Ruskin College to consider the draft proposals for the remodelling of the constitution of the governing body of the college. There were "resent about fifty representatives of Trade Unions and other working class organisations which had hitherto supported Ruskin College. Prof. Lees Smith (chairman of the Executive Committee) nresided, and was supported by Mr. D. J. Shackleton, M.P., Mr. C. W Bowerman, M.P., Rev. A. J. Carlyle, M.A., Prof. Goudy (mem- bers of the Executive Committee), Dr. Gilbert Slater. M.A., D.Sc. (resident lec- turer in Sociology), Mr. Hardern (Co- operative Union), and Mr. Bertram Wilson (secretary of Ruskin College). In his opening remarks, the Chairman said that the conference had been called together to consider the proposals which had been drawn up by the Executive Committee. They were prepared, how- ever, to give their version of the recent dispute which took place at the institu- tion. The College was founded ten years ago, and for some years was supported etk'i'sly by private hidiridSalS. The Trade Unions had to be coaxed into sup- porting the College. It was gradually that the Unions, one after another, sent up students, and as the number of Trade Union students increased, the Trade Union representation oil the Council was also increased. The Council of the Col- lege was to-day composed of half each of Labour men and educationists. Now, however, Ruskin College was going to make a bold bid for increased support. The Trade Unions and other organisations would have to make up their mind whether, if the College was worth being supported at all, it was worth supporting adequately. Now was the time for the Labour movement to take up the matter seriously and decide to support and con- trol the College (cheers). The proposals of the Executive Committee were as follows —" The Council of the College shall consist of (a) two representatives elected annually of each of the following bodies—the Trade Union Congress, the General Federation of Trade Unions, the Co-operative Congress, and the Working Men's Club and Institute Union; (h) one representative elected annually of each Trade Union, Trades Council. Co-operative Society, or other working class organisa- tion which at its own expense send a student or students to the College. The proposals also included suggestions for the election of an Executive Committee and for the holding of a general confer- ence for delegates from working class organisations in Oxford annually to dis- cuss the work of the College." A lengthy discussion afterwards took place and several delegates suggested that a statement of the whole position of affairs should be given before they decide upon any course of action. The Chairman then reviewed the events which led up to the resignation of the late Principal. The recent strike at the College was the last of a series of disputes. For some two or three years the bulk of the regu- lations drawn up by the Executive Com- mittee were met by threats of revolt on the part of the students, and revolts actually took place on a few occasions. The regulations were such as were neces- sary for the conduct of such an institu- tion as a college. Whatever regulations the Executive Committee would draw up, it was almost impossible to have them carried out. The Executive Committee, after an enquiry, came to the conclusion that the Principal' had failed to perform his duties properly, and that his failure was responsible for the disorder in the College. There was no way out of the difficulty but for either the Executive Committee or the Principal to resign. They chose the latter alternative. Those who had been attacking the Col- lege had made two charges. They were, that the Executive Committee were anxious to have Ruskin College linked up with the University, and that in order to do this it was necessary to have Mr. Hird, and his subject, namely, Sociology, removed. They had never at any time entertained any idea, of linking Ruskin College with the University. In fact, Sociology was being; taught in the Univer- sity itself, and the good faith of the Executive Committee of Ruskin College could not be doubted when they had ap- pointed Dr. Gilbert Slater, M.A., D.Sc., as Resident Lecturer in Sociology (cheers). Mr. John Hodge, M.P., who repre- sented the Steel Smelters' Union, said he was personally quite satisfied with the statement lie had listened to. He, how- ever, moved that the Labour Party be included among the organisations which are allowed two representatives on the Council. This was seconded by Mr. Walker (Steel Smelters' Union). Mr. btraker (INortnumberland Miners) moved the adoption of the proposals as put for- ward by the Executive Committee, and was seconded by Mr. Cairns (Northumber- land Miners). A lengthy discussion then took place on the proposals, and the re- commendations of the Executive Com- mittee were ultimately carried almost unanimously. It was also agreed that the Executive Committee make arrangements for hold- ing provincial conferences and that the new constitution he made the basis of discussion. It is understood that an appeal will be made at these conferences to the various organisations to make the College of real value to the working classes of the country.

I proceedings, in which it was stated that the Council had decided, on the motion of Mr. J. D. Williams, Clydach Court, to approach the Tramway Company with a view to connecting the tramway system between Trealaw and Tonypandy. The Chamber decided to write to Mr. Williams, thanking him for the action he had taken in the matter, and stating that he had the hearty support of the Chamber, as they considered the connection was very needful. Mr. Llewellyn Evans thought the other representatives of the Wards should also give their hearty support to Mr. Williams in the matter. Mr. Geo. Evans brought t before the notice of the meeting the nuisance caused to pedestrians and passengers passing under the T.V.R. Incline Bridge, near Pandy Square. He stated that since the company had made certain alterations to the bridge, the corrugated sheeting had not been replaced, the consequence being that, when it rained, the coal stained droppings fell on to pedestrians and pas- sengers as they passed underneath, and it was anything but a satisfactory state of things, It was ultimately decided to send a com- plaint to the proper quarters.
