FASHION OF THE WEEK. I I TWO SMART HATS. Certainly, the millinery of this winter season- of 1910 is original, whatever else it may be. Look at the new toques Do you ever remember seeing anything really like them before ? I can't say that I do. Quaint, charm- ing in shape, and, best of all, extraordinarily becoming, the toque of this prespnt is quite an ideal form of headgear, and it would be an ugly woman indeed who could not find something to suit among the multitudinous models now on view. Our first sketch pictures a particularly good example of the new toque. This smart model is somewhat Napoleonic in shape, and is entirely carried out in soft and beautifully supple black velvet. The brim, which is upturned all round the face, is only slightly stiffened, and is, therefore, pliable, and can be bent to the most becoming curve. The point of the bag crown is brought over on to the brim in front and there secured by an immense round ornament of jet, this ornament being linked by pendant chains of jet to a similar but smaller ornament set on the left side of the brim. The second hat is much larger, but is also carried out in black velvet. It has a fairly large round crown and a wide, downbent brim, somewhat of the mushroom type, which is finished all round the edge by a narrow, hang- ing band of fine Jace in a beautiful clotted cream shade. Round the base of the crown comes a drapery of similar lace, above which is placed a band of mink. An immense, open rose, made of clotted cream velvet, is placed on the left side of the brim, giving the finishing touch to a beautiful and uncommon creation.
Interesting Wedding at Abergele. STEWART-JONES. An extremely pretty wedding was witness- ed at the Abergele Parish Church on Thurs- day morning, the contracting parties being Mr. George Donald Stewart, third son of Mrs. Stewart and the late Mr. John Stewart, Plasnewydd Buildings, and Miss Lizzie Jones, elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. P. Jones, Metropole Cafe, Abergele. The Curafte of Abergele (Rev. D. R. Griffiths) officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked very charming in a dress of white silk crepe de chene. Her halt was of white corded silk, trimmed with a large white ostrich feather and silver cords. The bridesmaids, Miss Emily Stew- art and Miss Annie Jones, were dressed in white silk. Miss Jones wore a white beaver hat trimmed with Pa/isley silk, and Miss Stewart a similar hat trimmed with a wreath of roses. The bride carried a bouquet of white flowers, and each bridesmaid one of pink flowers. Mr. C. P. Jones, jun., acted as groomsman, and Mr. Harry Fletcher as best man. The subsequent reception was held at the bridesmaid's home, where a large party of relations and friends sat down to a sumptuous breakfast. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart left Abergele by the 2.30 p.m. train for Bicester, Oxfoid, where the honeymoon is being spent.

Honesty Rewarded. After entering one of the rooms at the Mitie Hotel, Pwllheli, a barmaid found lying on the 1able a bag containing coin. She in- formed the licensee, Mr. T. Cunningham, who, upon, examining the same, discovered that it contained no less than £ 40 in gold. The matter was immediately reported to the police, and the bag handed over to Super- intendent Jones. Late at night a well known farmer returned to town to look for the missing money, and he rewarded the barmaid with ias.
Chirch ews. The Bishop of St. Asaph has fixed courts for his sixth visitation of the diocese as follows: Wrexham, Monday, November 14th, for- the aichdeaconry of Wrexham, Os- westry, November 15th, for the archdeaconry of Montgomery: St. Asaph, November 16th, for the archdeaconry of St. Asaph.
NEXT TIME YOU FEEL "RUN DOWN." READ THIS CAREFULLY It Tells You How to be Strong. A man with no spare strength behind him is like a house with no foundation; both give way at the first attack. A man in this state needs a health-giving food which will brace him up and give the necessary fillip to his nervous system. Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa is just the tonic to do this. A cup of Vi-Cocoa at supper ensures a sound night's sleep, from which he will awake knowing that he lias rested. For giving stamina and vigour Vi-Cocoa, which contains kola, cocoa, malt and hops, works wonders on a run-down constitu- tion. Vi-Cocoa thus contains iust 1hose in- gredients necessary to make and keep you thoroughly healthy. Do not ask your grocer for cocoa. Ask for coar —it makes all the difference. Every grocer sells Vi-Cocoa in 6d. packets and gd. and IS. 6d. tins.
[Br A FAMILY DOCTOR.] HINTS ON INFLAMED EYES. Just two hints on cases of inflamed evos accompanied by a yellowish discharg-e. Th-e first is that you must not allow that dis- charge to collect at night-time when you are asleep; it is bad when the lids get stuck together, for then the discharge is pent up against the eye and makes the inflammation wcrse. To prevent the sticking of the lids, smear them well with vaseline or boracic ointment it will not hurt if some goes in the eye. And the second hint is that these casss are catchimg; you must take scrupu- lous care to use your own special towel and handkerchief and sponge; and if the patient is a child it must sleep alone, as the dis- charge may get on the pillow. If you go to work in a factory where you have to wash in a common lavatory with a common roller- towel, I advise you to avoid that towel and to take your own. -0:
A QUESTION OF CIRCULATION. The importance of rest in the cure of sore places and ulcers 011 the feet ard legs is not sufficiently well recognised. When the blood circulates through the ulcerated area it per- forms a double function it brings nourish- ment to the diseased tissues to build them up, and it carries away the poisonous pro- ducts of the ulceration. The faster the blood circulates, the better are these two functions performed. But the foot, being the lowest point in the circulation, is where the blood has most difficulty, and where the blood-stream is most sluggish in order to get back to the heart it has to climb up- hill. That is why these ulcers always occur in the foot and leg; you never saw one on the top of the head. If you lie down, with the foot raised on a pillow, the foot is no longer the lowest point of the circulation it is on a level with the head. Hence the circulation is encouraged, and the rapid supply of healthy blood does more to heal the ulcers than any application. Rest is essentia] for sores on the leg, especially in elderly people. -0:
THE LITTLE TOO MUCH. I think some of you feel seedy and de- pressed because of the accumulated effect of a number of small faults. One fault by itself seems almost negligible, but all of them taken together make a decided impres- sion 011 your health. You go to bed a little too late and get up a little too early, rob- bing your system of an hour or two of healthy sleep every day for years. You eat a little too fast and a little too much, throw- ing a strain on the digestive organs every day for ten years when you begin to feel it. You smoke rather more than is good for you, and you drink a little too much whisky. 0 Oh, I know you will stoutly deny it, and I am quite sure you have never been drunk in your life, but probably if the yearly con- sumption of whisky were reduced by a dozen bottles you would be none the worse. You worry a little too much and you laugh much too little. Your boots are a little too tight, and your tea is a little too strong; you spend a little too much on cheap sweets, and your room is a little too stuffy. I don't want you to worry about putting the doctor out of employment; the workhouse in my district is really very comfortable. And then most of us are very rich, because although we are the first to be called, we are also the first to be paid. Sometimes. -0:-
RINGWORM. If you look closely at a patch of ringworm on the scalp you will see that the area affected is covered with the broken stumps of hairs. You may need a lens. The hair grows, but it is brittle, and as soon as it attains a length of a quarter of an inch it snaps off. These stumps are the most characteristic feature .of ringworm. If you have a dispute with the school authorities about the presence of ringworm in your child's scalp, the hairs must be examined under the microscope; to see the actual fungus that causes ringworm places the matter beyond dispute. The school nurse and doctor are so experienced in ringworm that they are very rarely mistaken and vou would be wise to accept their verdict for your child's sake. Teach your child that it is very wrong to wear another child's hat or cap; and, if possible, your child's hat should be hung on a peg quite distinct from other pegs, and not underneath another cap which may be infected. Ringworm is only a name-there is 110 worm about it.
o: THE FRIENDLY KNIFE. Whenever you have an abscess in any part of your body always consent to have it 0 opened. Do not get hysterical and say you cannot bear the knife. The knife is one of the kindest-hearted creatures you could imagine. An ounce or two of poisonous matter is locked up in the abscess; which is better, to leave it there to poison your whole system or to empty it out into the dust-bin? At any moment the matter may get into the blood-stream and be carried all over the body. To have the abscess opened means relief from pain, sleep instead of torment, cool temperature instead of fever, and free- dom from the danger of poisoning. -i
MEDICINE AND COMMON-SENSE. Don't be so lazy. You expect me to d. everything for you. I pour the medicine in the bottle, and you drink it, and you think that ends our compact. Not at all. I wall not treat you if you think that: you can go to someone else. If you wish to get well, you must use your common-sense, cultivate self-control, and take pains to learn and understand the simple laws of hygiene. I am fully aware of the wonderful power of drugs: I do not know what we should do without such drugs as opium and morphia, chloroform, digitalis, strychnine, and many others. But I do not want you to think that medicine as a substitute for common- sense, and that swallowing a mixture will give you health, strength, and beauty with- out there being any necessity to follow the rules of hygiene. o
THE CRY OF THE CHILDREN. I like to arouse the rivalry of towns and counties: it does them good. I would rather arouse rivalry in health and cleanliness and sobriety, and birth and death rates, than in football or wrestling. One of the clearest indications of a town's progress and en- lightenment i^ the infant mortality. The infant mortality in London is going down. Out of a thousand registered births in London, 129 babies died in 1908. 109 in 1909, and 95 in 1910. But in fifteen Lancashire towns no less than 143 infants died out of 1,000 born. That is a bad record. The town of Preston had the worst bill of health, showing an infant mortality of 209 for every 1,000 born. What is the death- rate amongst infants in your town, dear reader? If it is above 100, it is a disgrace to you as a townsman, and you must do something to improve the food supply and the dwellings of the infants; and you must see that your money as a ratepayer is help- ing to dispel ignorance on the part of young mothers about the care of infants. -():
