MODEL HOTEL AT DINAS POWIS. PHILANTHROPIC LOCAL GENTLEMEN. SIX PER CENT. AND AFTER. SELF-ABNEGATION IN EXCELSIS. LICENSE GRANTED. C At Barry Brewster Sessions on Thursday in in last week, an application was made for a licence for the Powis Hotel, situate on the main road facing the Barry Railway line at Dinas Powis. Mr Ivor Bowen, barrister (instructed by Mr J. Arthur Hughes) appeared for the applicant, Mr Thomas A. Isaac, secretary of the Dinas Powis Hotels Co. There appeared in opposition Mr Downing, solicitor, on behalf of the Barry Railway Co., Mr J. H. Jones for licence-holders in the locality, and Mr Donali Maclean for Mr Humphrey Wallis, a resident. Mr T. R. Thompson and Mr John Duncan, as gentlemen interested in the Barry Railway Co., intimated that they were taking no part in the application, Mr Ivor Bowen, in opening the application. declared this to be the first of its kind in the county of Glamorgan. The licence was required for the Powis Hotel, Dinas Powis, a place whicb was greatly increasing, but was badly served at present. It was a first-class house, built two years ago for the purpose of an hotel. Pro- ceeding to state what were the objects of the company. Mr Bowen expressed his surprise that the Temperance party should, as in this case, indiscriminately oppose every application for a licence. Mr Donald Maclean I must protest. I do not appear here for any Temperance party. I appear here to represent Mr Humphrey Wallis, and to represent his views that there is no necessity for the licence, I strongly object to being continually labelled as the Temperance party. Mr Bowen Well, Mr Maclean only appears for one resident. The application was made with the object of dealing with the existing evils of the Licensing Act. The company was formed on the lines of that started by Earl Grey a year or two ago, and tried in two or three places with remarkable success. It was pro- moted by temperance men, clergymen, and men of position, on the ground that here, where there is such a public want, there is a chance to make this experiment. The capital was £ 20,000 in il shares, and was formed for the purpose of carrying on the businessof licensed public-houses on the Gothenburg system, returning to those people interested in the company only 6 per cent., and then dividing the remaining profits among certain objects in the county of Gla- morgan selected by the Lord Lieutenant in accordance with a scheme forming part of the articles of association. The shareholders in- cluded such gentlemen as the Rev H. H. Stewart, rector of Portbkerry; Rev H. J. Williams, rector of St Andrews; Rev A Henderson, vicar of St John's, Cardiff, most of whom he intended to call as witnesses. Other names were read of local gentlemen to show the bona fide nature of the application. Dividends, he declared, would be of no consideration what- ever to the shareholders, who would get nothing more than 6 per cent., which was not an un- reasonable amount, considering the difficulties of managing such places as these. The articles of association provided for contributions to th" Cardiff Infirmary, Barry Nursing Association, or any other nursing association in the place provide or contribute towards the provision of a reading-room, public library, public institute, gymnasium, public swimming bath, or public hall in any other part of the county of Gla- morgan provide scholarship or bursaries in any college or school in the county; and pro- vide prizes for the promotion of temperance, and providing lectures and teachers in con- nection with it. Then the concluding article provided that in the event of a sale of the licence, the whole of the profit of such 8al.. should be distributed as the Lord Lieutenant would decide. The property,it was well known, was formerly owned by Mr John Weaver, aud was purchased by Mr Caple, architect, for il,445, and with lpbal costs this would reach il,,300, for which sum he bad undertaken to sell it to the company. A gentleman in Cardiff was prepared to hand over ;CI,000 as mortgage if the money was needed, so that the company were in a position to start the home imme- diately. Thirty-eight houses had been erected in the vicinity, and there were now before the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council plans for a large number of other houses pro- posed to be built. Mr Dashwood Caple, architect, declared that the house originally cost £ 2,623 to build, and if he put it up for sale he could realise a great deal more than £1,500 for it. He was himself a shareholder of 500 shares, and a director. The e was a sad lack of good hotel accommo- dation in the place, apart from the ruanner in which they proposed the hotel should be con- ducted. „ In answer to Mr Downing, Mr Caple said the initiation of the scheme was due to Mr J. Arthur Hughes, solicitor, who was acting in the matter of that application. The amount of subscribed capital was JE805. Mr Downing There is nothing to prevent shareholders next month striking out the articles altogether ?—That is a matter for a solicitor. Are you prepared to say that it can't be done? -Of course I cannot speak on that point. As a shareholder I went into the company, believing that. it cvllld not be done. What wa. there to prevent you selling your shares to me?—You must have my consent first Further questioned, witness said he did not know whether there was any legal security against the shares being sold, or the company being wound up to-morrow. Mr Bowen Article 105 provides for this. Mr Downing Articles can be altered at any tinj)r D, Davies, one of the justices, asked Mr Downing whether, if they departed from the scheme, the licence could not be refused at any tUMr Downing Undoubtedly; but the con- stitution of the Bench may not be the same as *°Further questioned, witness said he kuew there w ere 223 houses already m the village, and three of these were licensed premises. The population was about 1,200. Cross-examined by Mr J. H. Jones, witness explained his connection with the company and the purchase and salt of the hotel hulling. > e would receive £ 40 a year as ground rent; he had p..ici i:20 an acre" for the land. It was true that there was a cesspool provided within 30 or 40 feet of the premises on the Elmgrove-road into which several houses drained, and the local authority had refused to take over this roadway Until the css>pool had b^n rnmoved. Ti, roadway led up to the village MrJ. Lova* Fr-'zer, barrister, was .iext <-ali«"l. and sai they had i;t the slight st Tnreutiou of becoming tied to brewers. Questioned by Mr Downing, witness declared that the scheme was originally discussed at the outset by Mr Hughes and himself, and also the feasibility of having such a company in the district. It arose in cousequencei of conversa- tions between two of them. By Mr J. H. Jones: The purchase was Dot absolute as yet, but they wanted to ask for that licence before it was made so. Mr Jones: If you do not get it do you "bust?" (lAughter.) Yoti have had enough experience of publicj'companies to know that, Mr Jones. Mr Rooney, architect and surveyor, who has resided at Dinas Powis for several years, was of opinion that a good hotel was required at the place, anJ the present idea was a capital one. The Rev. J. H. Williams, rector of St An- drew's, Dinas Powis, said he had become a shareholder in the company with the idea of making an experiment. The Rev H. H. Stewart, M.A., rector of Porthkerry, who said he had been a teetotaler for 23 years past, supported the application, because he believed he was doing good temper- ance work. The establishment of a house on the system suggested would, in his opinion, be of great utility in the neighbourhood. It was step in the right direction. It was part of the system that non-intoxicants and food should be sold, and a manager would have an interest in the sale of these, and not in the sale of in- toxicants. By Mr J. H. Jones He did not come there to give evidence in favour of granting such licences', but if the magistrates were of opinion that a licence was rt-quired in a particular locality, they will grant one to be carried on on these lines. Mr Jones You are, are you not, opposed to til licences I am auxiou to see temperance r 'form, and wlHoItber I like it or not drink will be made, sold, and consumed. I think there is quite as much to be done in the way that licences should be conducted as temperance work as there is in the question of reducing the number of licenses. There are three others there P—I would pre- fer not having one at all. By Mr Doriald Maclean He believed a casf would be made out showing its necessity before a fresh licence was granted, but there was a great deal to be done in the direction of tem- perance apart from the diminution cf the number of licences. Dr T. F. Koch and Mr G. W. Boucher, who owned between S4,000 and £ 5,000 worth of property in the place, also gave evidence, and another witness was called to prove the immense vehicular traffic on that road. Mr Downing, in the course of his address in opposition, declared that all access to the hotel on the main road might be stopped if the Barry Company decided at any time, the main road being private property. Mr J. H. Jones,who also addressed the Bench, declared that the magistrates bad no right to encourage experiments, seeing that the wants of the district in which they were to be tried were already well met. Mr Donald Maclean based his remarks en- tirely on the question of necessity, and said, although they desired, as temperance workers, reform in several directions, the sole question for the Bench to determine was whether a case had been made cut of public need for the grant- ing of an additional licence. Mr Themas Cram, an ex-councillor, Gladstone Villa, Dinas Powis, opposed the application. There was plenty of accommodation for all purposes in the existing houses, and he didn't think the Gothenburg system would work in their village. Mr Ivor Bowen Do you understand the system?—I understand it is for temperance more than anything else. (Laughter.) Mr William Barnett, licensee of the Cross Keys, declared there was sufficient accommoda- tion at his house. He had a large room in which public dinners and other local functions were conducted. air J. H. Jones: Do you have quadrille parties there ?-Yes, sir; the Volunteers drill there every week. (Lou I Laughter.) Mr R. Chatterton, licensee of the Swan Hotel, Kastbrook, alro opposed the application. The magistrates (Messrs David Davie*, J. Lowdon, and J. C. M. ggitt) then retired for a few minutes, and on their return into tfurt bri-fly announced that the application was granted. The hearing of the application lasted over three hours.
OPINIONS ON THE RESULT. PRO AND CON. Mr J. A. Lovat Fraser:- "It is an excellent sign that the work of teinpeiance reform is passing from the hands of u,ireas.,Yi;g far aticsinto tho.e of moderate men, \*). lo, k at farts m a caJ, and sensible fashion The confiscatory p licy f the te,total extremists has (ieteated rs n ol j cr. They shut their eves to facts, hnd then fancy that those facts are non-existent." The South Wales Daily New8:- "Possibly the only ciuse for dubiety in the jusi ices' minds had reference to the point raised by Mr Downing, uho appeared in the interest- of the Barry Radway Company. In the event of the licensed premises changing hands, what then ? Wnat guarantee was there tLat the Powis Hotel would in ihat event continue to be conduced upon the Gothenburg plin ? Of course, no such guarantee w as, or could be, forthcoming, but the Bench, probably re-cdlling that licences came up for revision every year, were sufficiently satisfied." Mr C. Palk, Cardiff, says:- We are told that some of the profits are to provide prizes for the promotion of temperance, and ptovidiug lectures aud teachers in connec- tion with it.' Was ever irony more exquisire thac this ? Out of the surplus profits it seems that temperance lectures and teachers are to be provided. It would be interesting to know what topics these liquor subsidised temperance lee urers are to take. Possibly one will be some- thing like this How intoxicating litjuor changes its nature when dispensed by a com- pany, thereby becoming beneficial instead cf injurious.' Rev L. Ton Evans:— One very grave objection of temperance people and others is thut such an experiment' should tntail a ;u. w and an additional licence to the three alre,ii)- in exi-tcnoe there I annng a P')Ptllat, I (.f ai,, u t 1,000 ..at in the face of the Royal Commission on Licensing Reform repotting that the present number of licences is far in excess of thc púpnllticl1 alll public requirements." One of the I)ioilioters One of the objects of that system is to secure tor the public so;ne part of the profits arising from the licjuor monopoly."

TRADE AND LABOUR. UNIONISTS AND THE LORDS DECISION. COUNCILLOR JOSE'S OPINION. THE SYNDICATE SIDING. The fortnightly meeting of the Barry Trades' and Labour Council was held at the Glamorgan Restaurant on Thursday evening in last week, Mr O. Watkins in the chair. Two of the Labour representatives ou the Courcil and School Board were present—Mr J. II. Jose and Mr John Rees respectively. TRADES COUNCIL CONGRESS. The resolutions to be submitted to the con- ference of trades councils, held at Weston on Saturday, were discussed, and the delegate (Mr Fred Walls) iastructed on the course he should take in voting upon the different resolutions. One of these had reference to the T.V.R. and A.S.R.S. case, and Councillor Jose said that, in his opinion, trades unionists were making too much of the House of Lords' decision. There was no doubt, trade union agents were restric- ted and prevented from doing things they had done ia the past, but so far as strikes were con- cerned, men could still strike, and if they could not picket, they could refuse to work. The only thing was, they must not interfere with the non union element. Councillor Jose next gave a report of the work of the Council. He hoped the new town hospital would be gone on with. With regard to the SYNDICATE SIDING, all he could say was that in the initial stages of that matter every member of the Council was present, with the exception of two-Dr Tre- harne and the Jate Mr S. Barnett-and they all voted in favour of buying and entering into an agreement with Mr Thompson for the purchase of the siding and land. They took the siding with the view of selling it at a future date and recouping themselves in that direction.— An inquiry would shortly be held, and he hoped the town would secure it for £ 7,500. The land would become much more valuable, and he did not think they could own too much land in the town, especially if they got it freehold. (Hear, hear.) They were bound to make the purchase. —Mr John Rees also gave a report.
Barry Church Extension Scheme. A CLERGYMAN'S OPINION. On Sunday morning the Rev H. H. Stewait, rector of Barry, preached at St. Mary's Church, Holton-road, and in the course of his sermon referred to the new scheme for extending and building churches in the district. The new scheme-broad in its character—was likely to receive the support of those who would be- grudge a small gift to a church net at their end of the town. He much preferred to see churches being built in the district aa the result of the combined efforts of all classes in the community, and thought this was much more acceptable than a church which was the gift of one man, or a few rich men. He hoped a most whole- some rivalry would grow up among the people in the different parts of Barry, showing itself in a desire to increase the number and the accom modation of the churches, but that the rivalry would be generous and to the glory of God.

THE DAY OF MIRACLES NOT PAST A RETFORD FAMILY'S EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE- BILE BEANS CURE MOTHER, SON, AND DAUGHTER. It has come to be a commonly accepted state- ment that the day of miracles has gone past. This is only partially true, for if many of the things done to-day had been done the day after that upon which Ldzarus was raised from the dead, they would no doubt have been chronicled as miracles. For instance, the truly wonderful cure of Mrs Turner, of Mnorgate, Retford, and her son and daughter, by Chas. Forde's Bile Beans for Bilious ness would, doubtless, have attracted attention from the senbe, 80 sensational is it in i's nature. Snys Mrs Turner, speaking to a Retford and Cains- borough Times reporter For a long time I suffered so from weakness and debility that it was with difficulty I moved about. I had a constant feeling of heaviness in the stomach, and do what I would I could not get rid of if. My breathing a- laboured and cau"ed great pain. Many a time, when outside, I had actually to staud still in ord, r to get my breath, so bad had I become. One day a neighbour gave me a few of Chas. Forde's Bile Beans to see if they would do me any good. I thought they did, and so I purchased some. From the time I began to take them I have gradually im- proved, until uow I am (juite well again.") Upon bningqiH s- tioned, Mrs Tur- ner's daughter said she also had suffered from ii, rvous debility. She went on-" Nly strength lt-ft me, I became depressed, and lost interest in everything. So dreadfully lo' did I get th -t I could hardly move about, and I felt as if I should like to go to bed and not get up again. My mother, who said it was dreadful to see me so ill, gave me some of the Bile Beans, and I determined to give them a fair trial, The result is most satis- factory. Although only a shcrt time has lal),et since I began to take them, my weakness and de- pression are gone, and my strength has returned. The Beans are certainly a wonderful iiiedicii,e. Before the reporter left, Mrs Turner told of the third rase in I-er f,niily i,i which this wondeiful vegetable specific had. tfecterl a cure. She said :— A short time ago my son could not go about his work in consequence of sick headache and dizzi- ness. I gave him some of the Beans, and gradually his ailments cpa-ed to trouble him. The Beans have done him worlds of good, and he is not slow »o recommend them to others." Chns. F'-rde's Bil< Beans for Biliousness are «ithou" k doubt superior to all know m. dicim-s for n<-rvousne;-s, dehiliry, indigestion, liver and kidney disorders, constipa- ti"n, piles, hendachf, pimr,les & d ftee sores, anaemii. f»male -ilme' ts, rheumatism, slenpless- ness, neu algin, pa'pitation, an i th- fter-cff, cts of influenza.

LOCAL POLICE COURT NEWS. MONDAY. Before Mr DAVID DAVIES, Mr JOHN LOWDON, and Mr J. L. DAVIES. A DRAMATIC DEFENDANT. A coffee tavern keeper named John Jones, from the dockside, was summoned for being disorderly in the public thoroughfare. The occasion was a tussle between the police and a violent character named James Tobin, who had been sentenced to six weeks' imprisonment. Jones, among the ciowd, witnessed the efforts of Inspector Morris and three other constables in Merthyr-street to tike a prisoner to the station. Jones cried out, Let the prisonei go "Don't choke the man Let's take the man and followed them up to the police station, behaving in a manner likely to incite the crowd against the police. Mr J. H. Morgan, solicitor, appeared for defendant, who, when in the box, gave such a dramatic demonstra- tion of the conduct of the police in dealing with their prisoner that he created some excitement in court. Mr Pavid Davies, one of the magistrates, declared that he was even disorderly in their presence. Jones, who has lived in Barry for 17 years and is very respectably connected, was fined 5s. GAME TRESPASS AT WINVOK. Henry Palmer, a Wenvoe labourer, was the first of five defendants charged with taking game on land belonging to the Wenvoe Castle Estate. Gamekeeper David matched a couple of wires for a few hours, and early in the morning of the 8th, when there was a pheasant trapped, Palmer walked up to it, screwed the neck of the bird, and was re- setting the wire when he was caught. A fine of 10s and costs was imposed. Sidney Packington, of Quet-n-street, Barry, was ordered to pay a similar fine for trespassing in pursuit of raobits on the same Castle land. Eli Brewer was ordered to pay 10a and costs for trespassing with two dogs in pursuit of game at Porthkeiry. Two others— illiam Worthy Ward, High-street, and Joseph Radliff, Queen-street, Barry—who were aho suirmoned, proved that they were on a footpath walking through the field near the Colcot, where they were seen by the gamekeeper, and the case agaiust them was dismissed. A MISSING FORSE. William John Forse, labourer, surrendered to bail charged with unlawfully wounding his wife, Jane Forse. The latter, in consequence of the wounds she received, was obliged to go to hospital, but on her discharge from that institution she did not appear to give evidence against her husband. A summons had been issued for her appearance, but Mrs Forse was still absent. The Magistrates' Clerk said Mrs Forse was being kept out of the way, and her husband was again remanded on bail for a week. BUBBINGS' BACK YARD. A backyard altercation between neighbours at George-street, Barry Dock, was investigated. The circumstances were set forth in detail by Mr Morgan Davies, who appeared for the complainant, Mary Ann Bubbings, and Mr B. G. Davies, who appeared for David Thomas, the defendant, who also summoned Mrs Bubbings and her husband, Samuel Bubbings, for assault. There was great conflict of testimony, but bad blood had been created between the wo.-nen owing to the children. It culminated in the men having a fight one night in the back lane. When the summonses had been taken out apologies were talked about, Thomas de- claring that he didn't want his name in the papers. A third case was a charge of assault brought by Mrs Thomas against Mrs Bubbings, but the history of the Thomas-Bubbings family feud having been fully set forth from its genesis, the Bench decided to dismiss the cases, and advised them all to become on friendly terms once again. THE BURNINtJ PAPER BOY. Frederick Howell, of Woodland-road, a school boy casually employed at a local office, summoned a Holton-road tradesmen named VVilli.ims for assault- Mr M< rgin Davies, solicitor, appeared for the complainant, who declared that when burning some old papers in a quarry at the rear of Holton-road Williams' son came up to him and attempted to extinguish it. Howell turned upon Williams' son, and another lad running for the parent, the latter cama out and administered what he contended to be excessive punishment. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards declared that the boy had two bruises upon him as a re;-ult of the treatment he r(c,.ived at Williams' ban's Williams swore that he only tried to get the boy to the Police-station, and in the struggle he, possibly, got bruised. Besides that, the ooy behaved in a very impudent manner, and swore.—The Bench dismissed the case. A PENMARK VISIT. John Collins, of 10. Robert-street, Barry Dock, who paid a visit to Penmark with his wife on a recent Sunday afternoon, was now summoned for being drunk in that village. Collins, who was defended by Mr Morgan Divies, declared that he only went for a country visit, and in the daik, coming out of the public-house, he accidentally bumped against the policeman, who was incensed thereat, and threatened him with a summons for assault. He certainly was not drunk,-Cae dis- missed. HORROR OF HORRORS! There were many cases of threats, in which persons were all ged to delare that they would commit deeds too horrible to contemplate with calmness. Miss Emma Bateman declared that Mrs Lewis threatened to split her—(missing wordj- face open, but Mrs Lewis was appalled at the suggestion. Mrs Bateman sought protection, but the Bench considered it was unnecessary.— Susannah Evans and Sarah Jones, residents of Bridge-street, Cadoxton, were likewise charged with threatening horrible deeds on a lady who presides over the fried fish shop, which may easily be found in that locality at night. Both Mrs Jones and Mrs Evans solemnly declared that they only intended the threat for a dog, which was really furious.—The Bench, however, thought the dog's mistress deserved protection as well as the canine specimen, and bound both over in j65 to be of good behaviour to all the King's subjects for six months. A BLUE CURIO. Mr George Luther, draper, High-street, Barry, possesses an interesting souvenir. It is a piece of blue paper surmounted with the Royal Arms and duly signed by one of His Majesty's justices, com- manding him to appear at the local court charging him with obstructing the free passlge of High" street by depositing an empty box thereon. A myrmidon of the law straightway went into the box, took the book, was sworn, and duly attested the facts. Mr Luther complained of the law's delays. The offence was alleged to have taken place ou September 7th, and it was ten days after- wards that he received the blue paper. If he had committed an offence on the 7th it would have been entirely forgotten by him on the 17th unless the police told him they were going to prosecute him. Having been in business in London and Bristol for 26 years this, his first summons, was a decidedly interesting document to him, and he announced his intention of placing it in a glass ease. As an eccouragement to Mr Luther to con- tinue the good conduct shown by him in London and Bristol, the tltnch dismissed this case against him. 11 VAIN REGRET. Ellen Martin was summoned for disorderly con- duct in Park-crescent. She wanted (so the police- man said) to tight a woman on top of the hill. Defendant: Yes, that woman struck me first. Magistrate And theo you struck her ? Dtfendant (with a sigh of regret): No, sir, 1 couldn't catch her or Magistrate Yes, I know fined 2s 6d. DISORDERLIES. For behaving in a disorderly manner in the -treats Mabel Dnwii, Kate Wil-cn, and Ada Hollow ay, alias Hart, were each fined 2s 6d. WHEN THE LIGHT WENT OCT Prr st, James Picraft, and James Btddoe, for driving vehicles on the roadway at night without a sufficiency of light, deposited 2s 6d in the court cotters, and were permitted to depart. Beatrice Morgan, for riding a bicycle without a light, did not appear, and was ordered to pay all extra 2s 6d, while Thomas Loughor, also caught by the lyux- e,) t.(i Weuvoe policeman riding through the village, "as fined 2s 6d. »II)'T COME WITH A RING. Frank Morgau didn't come with a ring towards a number (,f p,,opi,- on Dock View-road, because hs a tn't a bell. Laiely he has bought a whistle. By do ng so he may s.ve ti1" 2s 6iÍ lie was ordered to pjy into oyurt fur not warning people of hia approach. PAYING RE>T. John Fisher,whose pony claimed the whole high- way to graze upon, was fined 2s 6d, while George Emblyn, a Barry milk vendor who permitted his eows to wander down the Parade at Barry or the purpose of affording residents in that locality an opportunity of seeing for themselves where his milk came from, was fined 10s, A BOY'S TEMPTATION. Henry Costello, a bright-looking school boy, was r. cenily sent by a neighbour—Mrs S YiI-to change a half-sovereign, lingered on his j -urney, nn-t another boy, who told him what sweet possibilities might bu achieved by the expenditure of that vast sum, and Costello returned not until next day, and when he appeared on the second day he was with- out money and without its worth. Forthwith he was put into the safe hands of Police-constable Poolman, who brought him before the Bench. The boy was given a good character, but had lately begun to play truaut, and the Bench, after giving him some sound advice, ordered him to b3 bound over.

A SOUTH WALES WOMAN'S DISCOVERY, DR SLATER'S BLOOD TABLETS END SPINAL COMPLAINT, SLEEPLESSNESS, AND WEAKNESS. THREE YEKRSI AGONY ENDED. The marvellous benefit derived from the use of Dr Slater's Blood Tonic Tablets by Mrs Mary Morgan, of 34, New-road, Ynysybwl, near Ponty- pridri, affords one more practical illustration of the unexampled excellence of this up-to-date remedy. For three years this lady was the victim of spinal complaint, and had practically no hope of recovery. Dr Slater's Tablets came her way, and proved a priceless treasure. Out of pure gratitude for their result, and in the hope that others may be pointed hy her experience to the way of a cure, she has told her story to the Pontypridd Chronicle. When first illneps overtook me three years ago," said Mrs Morgan, "it was in the form of a painful weak. ness. I began to find that I could no longer get about lightly and easily as I used to. It was something worse than the advance of age for in quite a short time assistance had always to be given me when I wanted to move. Any effort of my own put me into frightful agony. There were twitching pains in my sides and at night, when I laid down, real restful sleep never seemed to come, although I was dull, drowsy, and properly fagged out: My plight was made worse by an attack of indigestion. By day and by night I was miserable and life was a burden to me. My doctor said my real complaint was weakness in the spine. No relief was ever afforded me, not even for a day, and I was in utter despair." "How, then, do you accouut for this remark- able chauge ?" inquired the reporter. You can hardly credit that I have gone through what I have described. My sister in Cardiff sent me a box of Dr Slater's Blood Tonic Tablets, and asked me to try them, saying also that they had wrought remarkable cures in and around Cardiff. So I thought I would once more try, hardly daring to hope for relief, for I had tried so many widely-advertised preparations. The change at first was very gradual but I could tell that the Tablets were beginning to take effect. I persevered, and in a few weeks the twitching sen- sations in the side, and the stomach pains, had been greatly reduced. They got less and less, and now they are gone completely and I never have the least trouble anyway. I enjoy, too, a good night's rest as a regular thing. The spinal com- plaint is ended, and I have now no difficulty in getting about as I used to. I am astonished myself at the improvement in me but it is all the Tablets which have caused it. Nothing else gave me relief. Whenever I hear of anyone suffering like I did, I always tell them about the Tablets. Several I know have benefited already. I consider them to be a most valuable medicine." Dr Slater's Blood Tonic Tablets ore at once a blood former, blood purifier, and general tonic, curing spinal complaint, nerve weakness, summer- end fag, and all forms of debility. They are also unequalled for sleeplessness, side pains, loss of app, tite, lassitude, anremia, bloodless and sallow complexions, palpitation, heart weakness, St Vitus' dance, locomotor ataxia, paralysis, eczema, pimples, face sores, ulcers, and other skin eruptions, neu- ralgia, headache, the early stages of consumption, and all disorders due to weak or impure blood.

A number of imitations are now in the market, and one or other of these is often advanced by shopkeepers to people they think may be imposed upon —as being just as good and cheaper." Don't think that a cheap medicine is as good as a costly one. If you want cheapness take the imitation. If you want worth, pay a few coppers more and get the real thing.

THE HOME Useful and Suggestive. >«. AW. bUTTER MU/K TBACAKES.—Two poundi of fiour, jiie and a half teaspoonful of baking powder, one- jighth of an ounce of bicarbonate of soda, and a [)inch of salt mix into a firm dough with buttermilk, which should be sour, though not rancid. A few jurrantB and a little white sugar can be added it jwoet toacitkes are wanted. Or, take half a pound of Hour, as much carbonate of soda as will lie on a shilling, double that quantity of cream of tartar, :ind a pinch of salt, make a stiff dough with butter- milk, knead lightly, and roll about half an inch thick; bake in round cakes. MEAT PIE.—Take a quantity of meat, either bed, mutton or fowl, sutticieut to half fill a pudding basin. Cut it in small pieces and cook in a kettle until newly done. Put the meat in the basin, taking care to keep it hot. Add au onion chopped line. Thicken the liquor for your gravy and season with salt, pepper and a dusL of sage. Prepare a batter iike that used for the pudding. When ready pour part of the boiling gravy on the meat, not too much, [or the batter must rest on the meat to be light. Spread on the batter and bake in a hot oven until it is brown. Allow it to cool ten minutes aud serve with the remainder of the gravy. CORNED ilEtF HASll.-Chop cold corned beef, and to one cup of meet add two of cold boiled potatoes, chopped; mix in one tablespoon dry mns- tard and a little pepper; put an egg-sized piece ot butter in a frying-pan and let It men siowiy, min- ing the pan so that it will be thoroughly btittere(I put in the hash, pressing it down smoothly all over the pan moisten slightly with hot water and let it cook, without stirring at ail, until it begins to brown on the sides, which you can tell by press- ing it back from the sides, when it will be done. Turn out on a hot platter bottom side up in a cake. HOILJED BEEF TONGUE.—Wash a fresh tongue and just cover it with water in the pot; put in a i pint of salt and a small red pepper; aid more water as it evaporates, so as to keep the tongue nearly covered until done—when it can be easily pierced with a fork; take it out and if wanted soon, take off theskinandsetitawaytoco)). If wanted for future use, do not peel it until it is required. A pint of salt will do for three tongues, if you have that number to boil; but do not fail to keep water enough in the pot to keep them covered while boil- ing. If salt tongues are used, soak them over night, ;)f course omitting the salt when boiling. Or, after peeling a tongue, place it in a saucepan with one (,ul) of water, half a cup of vinegar, four table- spoons of sugar, and cook until the liquor is eva. porated. TKA. AND COFFEE FOR CIlILDREN.-Mothers are often at a loss as to whether to give their children tea and coffee or not. If they drink it themselves, their children cannot always understand why they, too, may not have some. At first they are given weak tea. mostly sugar and milk, but this is only a step- ping-stone to that which is strong. Tea and coffee are both admitted, by men who study the subject from a standpoint of science, to excite the nervous system unduly, and, to some extent, injure the diges- tive processes—both things children should avoid. They are frequently causes—unsuspected often—in adults of irregular action of the heart, sleeplessness, headache, and other disagreeable symptoms. Can they do less to the more delicate organisms of the young? How TO CLEAN LAMI)S. -Every morning before lamps are set away, take the chimneys and blow on and into them and then wipe briskly with paper till dry and clear, and they will look as well as if wasliec each time, and so much quicker and more easily lone. Also make even the wicks and turn then down, so the oil will not gather on the outside 01 the lamps. Put in oil if needed and generally a p ece of red flannel, which not only looks pretty, but receives a large portion of the sediment whicl would otherwise cling to the wick, put paper sack over the chimneys to keep off dust, and set away till even .ig. If this is done every morning the lamps will keep in order with much less trouble thar to wash them every few days. Occasionally boi the burners in strong vinegar and salt, which wil keep them bright. FRUIT PTPDING.—The quantities can be varied of course, according to size of family. Fill a pud. ding basin half full of fruit, (your own choice), IUlt stew in suiffcient water until nearly done. While il is cooking beat up two eggs, to which add one-half cup of sour milk and a spoonful of cream, or a littlE butter, with flour sufficient to make a thick batter add a little salt. When thoroughly mixed dissolvt one-half teaspoonful of sOila, and stir just enough L< mix evenly. Sweeten and spice your fruit, taking care to keep it up to the boiling point. Remove i' from the fire and pour the foaming batter evenly. Pop it into a hot oven and keep up the heat unti the crust is a light brown, perhaps ten minutes Shut off part of the heat and at the end of half an hour remove from the oven and let it cool tell oi fifteen minutes before serving. Cut carefully and you have a crust of feathery lightness and delicacy. Much depends on the baking. Serve with sugai and cream, with lemon or vanilla flavouring. A PATIENT'S ROOM.—People who are not dis lurbed by disorder when well are often disturber y the least confusion in the arrangement ofaroon when ill. Everything in the room should be care- ndy adjusted to the best advantage, for a sick per. son's fancy is most capricious. Nothing should In alhiwed to lie around carelessly. The table shouk t I)e littered with books and papers. Flowers ..oiild be kept no longer than absolutely fresh liciiie and water glasses should be carefullj w ished and kept from the sight of the patient. Tin sight of medicine is not only trying to an invalid tit. oft(.-ii nauseating. No food should ever be pre- pared in the sick room. If only a small bowl of brotl it should be served as invitingly as possible. Not should a bowl of broth or gruel or a cup of tea bt carried to the sick person in your hand; place it or It tray covered with a clean napkin. Bring but f little quantity at a time, for a large quantity is api to take away the patient's appetite. If possibU always eerve too little, reserving a supply until askec for more. IVITCIIEN HINTs.Every scrap of meat and bom left from roast and boile I meats should be saved for the soup-pot. Trimmings from ham, tongue, cornet beef, &c., should be saved for the many relishes they wiM make. Cold lisli call b used in salads and warmed up in many palatable ways. In fact, nothing that comes on the table is more enjoyed tliar the little dishes made from the odds and ends left The fat trimming from beef, pork, and fowl should IJC friell out while fresh and then strained. The fowl fat ought to be kept in a jar by itself, foi shortening and delicate frying. The fat that has been skimmed from soups and boiled beef, should be cooked rather slowly till the sediment falls tc the bottom, and there is not a shadow of a bubble. It can then be strained into the jar with other fat. but if strained while bubbles remain there is watoj in it, and it will quickly spoil. The fat fron sausages should also he strained into a jar. Wher you have finished frying any article of food, set till k ttle in a cool place for a few minutes, then pou; the fat through a fine strainer, being careful to keel back the sediment, which throw into the waste-tub. In this way you can fry in the same fat severa titties, wliile if you are not careful to strain it eacl time the crumbs left will spoil all the fat. (lcca. sionally when you have finished frying, cut up two or three uncooked potatoes and put into the boiling fat, set on the back of the stove for ten minutes, then set in a cool place for a few minutei longer, and strain. The potatoes clarify the fat. Tilany people use ham fat for cooking purposes, anc when there is no objection to the flavour it is nict for frying eggs. potatoes, &c. But it should not bt mixed with other kinds of fat. Every particle of soup and gravy should be saved, as a small quantity of eIther adds a great deal to many little dishes The more quickly that food of all kinds cools, the longer it keeps. This should, bo particularly re- membered with soups and bread. Bread and cake must be thoroughly cooled before being put into a box or "jar; if not, the steam will cause them to 1II uld quickly. Crusts and pieces of stale bread should be dried in a slow oven, rolled into fine crumbs on a board, and put away for croquettes, cutlets, &c.
A woman often thinks she is regretting the loter when she is only regretting the love. Truth travels slowly, but it will reach you at last. How much pain the evils has cost us that have never happened. It is a great misfortune not to have mind enough to talk well, nor judgment enough to be silent. The gloomy and resentful are always found amongst those who have nothing to do, or who do nothing; Anger is like the waves of a troubled sea; wliea it is corrected with a soft reply, as with a little strand, it retires, aud leaves n >thing bfahind but froth and shells-no permanent mischief

STOMACH AND LIVER TROUBLES. HOW THEY ARE RAPIDLY CURED BY VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC. SYMTOMS. 1. Do you suffer from headache and aching limbs, dull heavy feeling, or a pain between the shoulder blades ? 2. Is your tongue coated ? Do you suffer from wind on the stomach ? Have you a pais under the heart ? Doen your hpart palpitate ? Do you feel bloated after eating ? Have you a soreness or tenderness at the pit of the stomach ? Is your appetite poor ? Have you sleepless nights ? 3. Are you melancholy ? Is your complexion sallow, and are your eyes dull and heavy ? Are you tired and weary in the morning. 4. Have you indigestion ? Does your food lie heavily on your stomach ? Are your bowels cos- tive ? Is there weakness and aching pains in the back ? Do you feel languid and nervous ? The foregoing symptoms are not all present in one esse, nor are two cases alike in every respect. They vary according to the organs mostly impli- cated. Thus, when chronic inflamatiou of the liver is associated with heart trouble, the subject may have palpitation, attended with more or less pain and shortness of breath. If the lungs are specially influenced, there may be a dry cough, rapid respi- ration and pain in the chest. If the nervous system is involved, other symptoms must necessarily arise. These diseases may be cured to-day, but not to- morrow this week and not next. Therefore secure VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC at once. The cost is small and the benefit lasting. It has been the means of curing many a despairing invalid, It is the most successful medicine in Great Britain, and is frequently called Tiie People's Strei,gthener and Health Giver." Doctors use it themselves because they recognise in it a scientific remedy, aud the most successful medicine that science has yet produced for stomach, liver, kidney, and blood diseases. A book relating to diseases and how to cure them accompanies each bottle. Ask for Veno's Seaweed Tonic, but be sure you get it. Price I/Ii and 2/9. STOP A COUGH IN ONE NIGHT.
