[NOTES BY "ATHLETE."]/ ASSOCIATION. The winter game is rapidly going out of fashion, and the cricketers may now be seen iu large numbers practicing on the fields in their flannels. A good deal of interest was centered round the match between the Barry District and the Barry Dock Albions. Splendid weather pre- vailed, and both sides turned out strong. The Albions succeeded in getting into the semi-final for the Bevan Shield, but were de- feated on Saturday last by the near margin of a goal (scored after an extra half-hour's play, the score at the call of time being two goals each). The District gave a wretched display, whilst on the other hand the Albions gave a perfect exhibition, which was a treat to witness, the way in which they tricked" their opponents causing much amusement. There is no doubt about it that the Albions were far and away the best team, but the weight of the District and extra time played told against them in the end. Let us hope that when the District play the Singletons at Cardiff on Saturday next in the final tie, they will give a better display, and bring the Shield for the first time to Barry. Barry Dock United bad another tussle with Cymiies, this being the fifth time the teams have met this season. The ended in a draw of one goal each. Out of the five matches played the United have won three and drawn one. The record of the United is a good one, for Z5 out of 30 matches they have won 24, lost four, and drawn two.
RUGBY. At a met-ting of the Union on Tuesday even- ing Llandaff Yard lodged a complaint against Barry for non-fullfilment of fixture. In the absence of any representative from the Barry club it was agred to ask for an explanation.
ALL BARRY DOCK PEOPLE. All Barry Dock people who suffer from backacV e have a chance to profit by a Newport resident's experience. B ickaelie is &'little tliil,g sometimes it comes after a hard day's work or a slight c II. It will pass off," you say it is only the result of over-taxi g my back." But it isn't the fault of your back at all-it is your kidneys. The ex, rlio,, or straining has interfered with their delicate mechanism. You call it backache, but it is r. ally kidneyache. If the kidneys are not reliev. d, Chronic disorders will set in, and that is why back- ache should not be passed over. All Barry Dock people who suffer from backache, and other kidney troubles, should read the following: "I am telling the truth when I say that Doan's Backache Kidney Pills cured me to stay cured," says Mrs Ada Cater, of 7. G-.rdon street. Newport. "It was right back in September of 1899-over 2.V years ago—that this medicine cured me, yet to- day I am still in the be..t of health. "Before using Doan's Pills my back was so weak that I did not dare to stoop, because after- wards I had such a bother to get straight again. The pains across my loins were agonising, and ther were certain unmistakeable symptoms of disordered kidneys. "I obtained some of Down's Backache Kidney Pills because I saw they were a medicine purely for kidney disorders—that trey devoted all their curative powers to thrse important organs. On trying the medicine I found it to be all that is claimed for it-the cure of my serious trouble was complete and lasting." Note.—Sharp backaches, aild pains across the loins, are certain signs of kidney disorder. They are flue to the kidneys being clogged with poison. which tbpy really ought to pass from the system, but are unable to do owing to their b,ing sick. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills permanently remove this trouble by cleansing and healing the kirln-ys, as well as strengtheoiog them, so that the diso:der will not cccur again. If you are ill, write and tell us your symptoms. We shall be pleased to give you the best advice in our power, free of charge. Your letter will be treated in strictest confidence. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence a box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence) Of all chemists and drug storer, or posted free on receipt of price by the proprietors. -Foster.

CERTIFICATE DISTRIBU- TION. SCHOOL BOARD LEGACY. ADDRESS BY MR. LEGARD, H.M.C.I.S. EFFICIENT AND WELL-TRAINED STAFF OF TEACHERS. At a meeting held in the Hannah-street, School on Monday evening Mr A. G. L, gard, H.M. chicf inspector cf schools for Wales, distributed merit certificatfs to scholsrs who sat for the County School Scholarship examin- tions in 1901 and 1902 aud obtained passes, and among those present were Councillor J. A. Manaton, RevF. J. Byrne. Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., Mr J. Lowd on, J.P., Mr Gwyn Morris, LJ. B., Alderman W. H. Edwards, Barry, and a large number of teachers and parents. Dr Edwards said that at the termination of the existence of the Barry School Board they thought it would be a fifing opportunity fur the parents of those children who would reeeive certificates to meet Mr Legard. He felt out of place there that evening, as he was not en the School Board nor on the new authority. The Board had been in existence for 28 years, yet no one could say they had not done the State some service. He paid a high tribute to the teachers and parents of the children ,for the healthy stimulus they had given the cause of education in the town. There system of training pupil teachers had been practically endorsed by the N.U.T., who represented over 47,000 primary teachers of the conntry. As a Board they left a legacy in the form of a system of elucational efficiency which he hoped the new authority would continue on the same lines and keep up their traditions. (Cheers). Mr Legard, in his address said the late Board had been very efficient in their work, had shown great enthusiasm in educational matter?, and had not pursued a cheeseparing policy. In hH opinion Barry possessed the finest set ot schools in the whole length of breadth of Wales. The Board ha 1 been very fortunate in obtaining an efficient and well-trained staff of teachers. Barry bad attracted teachers from all parts of the kingdom, and he hoped that it would still do so under the new authority. Recently he had been appointed by the Government to e squire into the system of training pupil t acber8 throughout the country, and in doing a) he would certainly come to Barry. (Cheers) Tue certificates he would present the children showed that they had made good use of th. i, sohool life, and those who got them had made a good start in life-(bear, hear)—and he hoped they would keep it up. He wished them to cul ivate esprit de corp," so that they would never do anything that would bring disgrace upon their school. Boys and girls who bad left school should set to it, and not be afraid of work. It would give him very great pleasure to distribute the certificates of merit. The Chairman then explained that it was at the suggestion of Mr Legard, made in last yeai's Blue Books that the Boa d decided to give these ceitificates which were similar to the I aving certificates granted in Scotland. The The standard of excellence in Barry was very much higher than in sllyof the other 13 centres of Glamorganshire. The number of passes gained by Barry children was 77 per cent., and the next best 50 per cent. Certificates were presented that evening for 1901 and 1902, all of whom had received over 50 ptr cent. el the marks, while those who had over 83 per cent. received a certificate with distinction. Prior to the children receiving their cer- tificates, Mr Legard presented six lady teachers with kindergarten certificates. On the motion of Mr J. Lowdon, Mr Legard was accorded a hearty vote of thank", a similar vote being also given to Mr Edwards fur presiding.
LOCAL DEATHS. DEATH OF MR L. A. ROGERS, BARRY rOCK. We regret to announce the death of Mr Louis Alexander Rogar", boarding-house keeper, of Travis-street, Barry Dock, which took place at his residence on Thursday in last week, after a long and painful illness. The deceased gentle- man was a member of the local lodge of Freemasons, and also a member of the Euglisb Baptist Chappl, Barry Dock. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, and a large number of relatives, friends, and locil tradesmen, followed the remains to the Mertbyr Dovan Cemetery, where the interment took place, the Rev T. Pandy John officiating. The chief mourners were- Mrs Rogers (widow) and children, Mrs Christian (mother-in-law), Mr A. Christian, Mr W. Christian, and Mr David (brothers-in-law). Deceased was highly respected by all who came in contact with him, and much sympathy ii felt for the widow and family who are left to mourn his los?. THE LATE MR JENKIN EVANS.

The deceased gentlemen and bis family had resided in this district for a great number of years, and were held in the highei-t esteem by all.

I IN every school in Paris there is a restaurant where free meals are served to the children who aro too poor to pay for them. THE New Zealand Government has set apart two islands for the preservation of the remarkable wild birds and other animals of that country. Thereon all hunting and trapping are forbidden. POSSIBILITIES OF MAIZE. Wonderful possibilities are afforded by the grain of maize. There are thirty odd products made from it as follows: Six kinds of mixing glucose, used by refiners of table syrups, brewers, leather manu- facturers, jelly makers, fruit preservers and apothecaries four kinds of crystal glucose, used by manufacturing confectioners; two kinds of grape sugar, L ed by brewers principally and tanners; anhydrous sugar, used by ale and beer brewers and apothecaries; pearl starch, used by cotton and paper mills; powdered starch, used by baking- powder manufacturers, cotton and paper mills; refined grits, used by brewers instead of brewers' grits; flourine, used by flour mixers without detriment; four kinds of dextrine, used by fine fabric, paper-box, mucilage and glue manu- facturers, apothecaries and many others requiring a strong adhesive aent; corn oil, used for table oil mixtures, lubricating-oil mixtures, and by manu- facturers of fibre, shade cloth, paint aud similar industries, where vegetable oils are employed; corn oilcake, for cattle feeding purposes, rubber substi- tute, corn germ, British gum, a strong adhesive medium; granulated, which competes with gum arabic and is used successfully in its place; distilled si irits, used in the manufacture of smokeless powder; fusil oil used in the manufacture of bour- bon whisky; alcohol for commercial uses in the manufacture of cologne, spirits and high wines; cornmeal for good purposes, corn next the cob, used in the manufacture of down, the brown husk 01 outer coating mattresses.
HORSES WHICH NEVER DRINK. There are hundreds of horses and thousands of cattle in the Hawaiian Islands which never take a drink of water throughout the whole course of then lives. On all the islands the upper altitudes of tht mountains are given up to cattle ranges. The cattle run wild from the time they are born until they are sent to the slaughter-house. Except possibly two or three months in the rainy season there are no streams or pools of water in any part where the cuttle range, but everywhere there grows a recum- bent, jointed grass known by the native name ot maninia. This is both food and drink.
THE CROZIER OF ST. FILLAN. A curious story is told of an historical relic which is now in the national collection in Edinburgh. The clan MacNab, a warlike and powerful tribe who held an absolute faith in their traditions, lived from the earliest times in the glen in Inch-Buie. One of their traditions was that a holy man, St. Fillan, had come to the glen in the seventh century, converted their ancestors to Christianity, and taught them the arts of civilised life. Among these was the method of grinding corn, St. Fillan having built a mill with his own hands. The pivots of the wheels were kept, and were supposed, when placed in water, to convert it into an infallible medicine. The crozier used by St. FilJan was kept by one family of the clan. The head of this family always acted as sheriff, and when going through the mountains in search of offenders, took the crozier with him as his warrant. This official was called Dewar, or Wanderer. In the beginning of the nineteenth century the clan left the glen and scat- tered, some of the members to the Continent, some to America. A few years ago Sir Da. iel Wilson, while hunting on the shores of Lake Superior, took refuge in the cabin of a Scotch settler, namtd Dewar. He found that the man's family had once lived in Inch-Buie, and pressing his inquiries, he had the satisfaction of seeing the ancient crozier brought out. Sir Daniel bought it, and it is now in Edinburgh. «
A FEW APHORISMS. A man seldom exhibits his temper unless ha loses it. The tongue is a pump used to induce a flow of conversation. When a man contracts expensive habits his income needs expanding. Many a man's hypocrisy is due to the fact that he has a scolding wife. It is usually to-morrow that all remarkably things are expected to happen. Flattery consists of having your secret opinion of yourself expressed in the language of others. Some people after casting a crust of bread upon the waters, think they should get a bowl of milk toast in return.
Two ODD FISHES. The clear, limpid waters that surround Bermuda and the West Indies lie above coral reefs covered with plants and animals, many of which are brilliant in colour as a rainbow. They look like glimpses of fairyland, and as your eye wanders from one wonder to another you catch yourself striving to peep just around some corner into a strange nook, half hoping to see a bevy of mermen and mermaids sporting and playing within the crannies. Here is a patch of pale green sea lettuce, there a group of great purple sea fans, yonder some golden corals standing out like a shelf or branching like a tree, while among them all swim lovely fishes that take the place of the fairies that should dwell in this magic land and fascinate you by their gorgeous colours and their graceful, wavy motions. There is a great green "parrot fish," as brilliant in colour as his namesake the bird, shewing himself boldly and swimming along slowly, secure from any assault. His scales are green as the fresh grass of spring-time, and each one is bordered by a pale brown line. His fins are pink, and the end of the tail is banded with nearly every colour of the rain- bow. He is shewy, but this showiness serves him a good purpose. His flesh is bitter and poisonous to man and probably so to fish as well, and they let him well alone, for they can recognise him afar off, thanks to his gaudy dress. Underneath the parrot, lying on the bottom, is a "pink hind." You notice him, and as the parrot passes over him he suddenly changes to bright scarlet and as quickly resumes his former faint colour. Had the parrot been looking for his dinner, and thought the hind would make a good first course, this sudden change of colour might have scared him off, just as the sudden bristling of a cat makes a dog change his mind. When the hind is disturbed at night, lie gives out flashes of light to startle the intruder and send him away in a fright.
SMALL CHANGE IN ABYSSINIA. For small change in Abyssinia a peculiar "coin" is employed. This is no other than bars of hard crystallised salt, about lOin. long and 2in. square, slightly tapering toward the end. People are very particular about the standard of fineness of the currency. If it does not ring like metal when struck with the finger-nail, or if it is cracked or chipped, they will not take it. It is a token of affection when friends meet to give each other a lick of their respective "coins," and in this way the value of the bar is decreased. Smaller change than a bar of salt is sometimes needed, and then the natives have recourse to cartridges. Three cartridges pass for one bar of salt. —
JEWS WHO WEAR PIGTAILS. It is not generally known, says the New York Tribune, that there is a colony of Jews in China- Jews who wear pigtails, bear Chinese names and speak the Chinese language exclusively, and who have forgotten the God of their fathers and neglected their ancient ritual of worship until it has been entirely lost to them. But there is such 1 colony, and its people have puzzled Oriental jcholars for many years. Recently it has been established that they entered China—or, rather, their progenitors did-about the year 319 A.D., in the reign of the Emperor Mingte II., and formed a colony about seven hundred miles from Shanghai, os the Hoang-Ho, or Yellow, River. At one time these Jews were a power in the land. Their city grew in population until its inhabitants numbered about 5,000 Jews alone, and they became so wealthy that they were able to loan money to the Emperor, who so esteemed them that he built for them a synagogue. Two of them, whose names have been lost in the passing years, were especially honoured by the Emperor. One he made the treasurer of a great province and the other was a general in the Imperial Army. In the golden days of Judaism in China they prospered, and when their magnificent temple was destroyed by fire they rebuilt it in greater magnificence. In a land where there aie many fine temples theirs was one of the most splendid. It was 350ft. long, and 150ft. wide. To-day their temple is a mass of ruins. Stone by stone, almost, it has been torn down by those whose care it should have been to preserve it. The story, even among the heathen, is that they forgot the worship of their God and he forgot them. They grew poorer and poorer with the advancing yeafs during which they failed to keep the Sabbath of their religion and were finally forced to sell all they had for food and clothing. Stone by stone, almost, their temple was demolished, to be sold to builders of other temples and houses their sacred books were dis- Ecsed of for what money they would bring; they ad no place for worship, and gradually their religious rites were forgotten, and even their language so neglected that it has now become a mere memory, and they themselves a people lost among the heathen of the Orient.

Longdon, M.A.) presided over the annual vestry meeting of the above parish, held on Thursday evening in last week, there being a good attendance. The accounts from each of the four churches were J respnted and adopted. Those of St. Mary's showed a large adverse balance, which bad been caused by the carrying out of certain improve- ments in the present building. The rector stated that the wardens during their term of office had had an experience which does not often fall to their lot—that of being responsible for the welfare of the parishioners-and, in his opinion, they had been a model set of wardens. He had great pleasure in choosing Mr Evan Lloyd as rector's warden for another year. Mr G. F. Willett was re-elected people's warden, Mr David Lloyd acting warden for the St. John's Welsh Chnrch, Mr George Thomas acting warden for the Parish Church, Mr T. James for St. Mary's Church, and Mr S. B. Sommerfield for the Cadoxton Mission. All the sideamen were re-elected for another t< rm of office. These the rector thanked for taking such an interest in their work, and it was a pleasing sight to him to see the activity displayed by them. Mr L. Molineaux was appointed lity elector for the parish. It was pointed out that an additioiril curate would be engaged in the parish in June, and the next business was to apportion his stipend payable by the various churches. After considerable discussion the apportionment was as follows St. Marys, £ 60; St. John's, E25 St. C idoc, X25 and the Mission Church, S20. Messrs. Phillips and Williams were appointed auditors. It was intimated that the erection of St. Mary's new church would be commenced at an early date.. BARRY. The Rev H. II. Stewart, M. A., rector presided. Accounts for the year were adopted and considered satisfactory. Mr C. Barwell was selected as rector's warden, and Mr C. Christian as peoples warden.
Twenty Minutes Late. AT the way from King's Cross we had been steadily losing time. The rails were wet and the train unusually heavy. At York we were twenty minutes late. There the railway people attach. d an additional engine and the train entered the Wavo-rley Station, Edinburgh, that night on time. The principle is commonplace when you cannot diminish an excessive load, increase the power. But what is an excossive load Gently, now Wait a bit. On any correct scale one hundred pounds is one hundred pounds, but on the back of a porter it is one thing and on the back of a slender girl quite another. To the first it is nothing to notice, to the eccodd, it is crushing. In other words, weight is a question of what supports it. This, then, is the principle on which we are to understand Mrs. Margaret Williams' assertion that she was heavy some years ago. No doubt the weighing mr.chine would have showed her some pounds off her proper weight for she was ill, out I of sorts, and not eating anything to speak- of. All the same, the lighter she not the heavier she felt and when it comes to one's relation to one's own weight it is jo-Uii'j, and not the scales, that settles thepoiot. For several years she dragged along in this un- satisfactory way always weary and fatigued, as if from hard and continuous labour, when, in fact, she was doing scarcely any work at all. Indeed, her weakntss was so great she could hardly get about. If Mrs. Williams could have eaten heartily and digested her i< od well, it might be thought she would have rocovered. But it wai prt cist-ly bec iuse she could not do so that the illness came upon her. In other w',rdE' she was suffering from Chronic indi- gestion and its consequences. Let her tell her own story. Writing from her homt>, 8. Bro k Street, Taibach, near Port Talbot, on January 24th, 1903, she says I could not dige-t the food I took, and in constquence it lay like lt-ad on my chest, causing me excruciating pain round the heart and b, tween the shoulners, often followed by vomiting. I vfrit d my diet. ceased to take solids and lived on bread and milk, but all to no purpi se. Loss of deep. splitting headaches, and flitulercy added to my suffering." The usual means of relief having been tried in vain, Mis. Wiliairs r»sorted to Mother Seigel's Syrup, with what result she shall state herself After the first two hot 1, s," she declares, "I felL somewhat better, butamatked change took place after I had taken the third bottle. I could then eat without vomiting or experiencing any pain, felt my food wss nourishing me, regained strength, and in a hc,rt time was quite cured and have never suffered from i' digestion tince." Truly, no matter what the scales may affirm as to one's weiglit, one never frels encumbered by it so long as plenty of well d-gestfd food furnishes the power and strength which should fill it from head to heel. Who" digestion faifs, the remedy- as shown in numberless irstnnces -is the same that restored again to Mrs. Williams the vigour of health.
