Saturday Pops." :x: On Saturday evening last, at the Wesleyan Church, Barry Dock (Mr F. Murrell presiding), the third of a series of popular concerts was held, aad turned out to be equally as successful as its predecessors, both instrumentally, vccally, and in the point of attendance. The accom- panist for the evening was Miss G. Abbott, A.L. C. M. A pianoforte duett by Master Reggie and Miss Gwladys Jones was very well execu- ted, while Mr Hany Mason excelled himself in the bold and martial type of baritone solo, he being particularly enjoyed in "The Admiral's Broom." The recitations of Miss Lily Cross also reoeived well merited applause. A singer much in demand locally-Miss Lily Clatwortby -was well received in her renderings of I I The Flight of Ages and the Welsh air Rising of the Lark." The humorous songs of Master Isaac Pennell, and the laughable trio, "Old Mother Hubbard," sung by Messrs J. T. Esau, A. Williams, and F. Westall, and the fairy bell selections of Mr W. C. Cross, made up the re- mainder of a really good programme.
Chas. FORDE'S bile beans. FOR THE COLDS AND CHILLS OF DARK NOVEMBER. CHAS. FORDK'S bile beans are the best safe- guard against chills, colds, rheumatism, neuralgia, gout, lumbago, liver chill, and the many liver and stomach troubles that the fogs and damp of November bring to a head. CHAS. FORDE'S bile beans keep the liver active they strengthen the stomach and bowels, and help to purify the blood and unlike cheap substitutes tone up the whole system. Mrs Eliza Allsopp, of 32, Alma Road, Ponders End, Enfield, London, says I used to dread the approach of winter, because my liver troubles always returned in very severe form. I Buffered from sick headaches and biliousness. For days at a time 1 covld neither eat or sleep,-and I became absolutely worn out with constant sickness and fearful headaches. 41 Life was a burden. I have a greengrocery business, which, at times, I was totally unable to look after. Though I was an out-patient at several hospitals, and took many medicines I received but very little benefit. 44 Several months ago I was advised to try CHAS. FORDE'S bile bean?. From the very first box I obtained much relief, and with a continuance of CHAS. FORDK'S I soon began to improve in health, My appetite returned, and at night I slept soundly. My strength and health returned, until I was finally quite cured. I would not be without a box of CHAS. FORDE'S bile beans in tne house. I can now face the winter with an easy mind, knowing that in Chas. Forde's bile beans I have a medicine that will keep me well and strong." Note that it was the original and genuine CHAS. FORDK'S bile beans that cured Mrs Allsopp. and not a cheap substitute. When buying, insist on seeing the distinguishing name," CHAS. FORDE'S," on the box label. Chas. Forde's are the kind you have always bought.
Barry Welsh Sunday Schools --0- At the Tabernacle Vestry on Saturday even- ing last the Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., Barry, delivered an address on "The qualities neces- sary to make a successful bunday School teacher." The good attendance included many of the foremost workers locally in this impor- tant brauch of the work of the sanctuary. Mr Williams dealt in a comprehensive manner with the almost insurmountable difficulties that Welsh Sunday School teachers had to contend with in towns like Barry, where many of the scholars possessed but a hazy knowledge of the Welsh tongue. Besides, Sunday School work did not appeal strongly to Barry parents gene- rally, for during a recent census taken in this town it was discovered that from 1,200 to 1,500 children did not frequent any Sunday School. Such a large number in a comparatively small town like Barry was really deplorable. The speaker proceeded to detail the qualities he considered absolutely necessary to combat such telling signs of indifference, and urged all pre- sent not to be disheartened by these difficulties, but rather consider them opportunities for dis- playiug qualities that present themselves only when great reforms have to be brought about. General discussion followed, when suggested improvements were enlarged upon by the even- ug's president (Rev Ben Evans), Mr T. J. Gonial, Graving Dock street Mr Rees (school "her), Oban street, Cadoxton Mr Howells, Barry; Mr T. E. Jenkins, Court I ,,C,-oxton and Mr J. R. Llewellyn )e-or being called upcn by the Rev Bt-n ,"fe\preaM\nting various local churches. N«ivohn Williams also took part. At .earty vote of thanks was tendered iyilliams for his able address.
THE HIPPODROME. -:0:- NEXT WEEK THE COAL KING." There is again a variety programme at the Hippodrome this week. Good 44 turns" are presented nightly. Harry Desmond, comedian, is very much appreciated, as also is Charles Cassell, the possessor of a fine voice. The Wallys, expert jugglers, are clever performers, and Molly Woostenhulme sings operatic selec- tions to the delight of the audience. As a pair of comedians and dancers, Norman and Allen are to the fore with the latest songs and jokes, while Harry Leaton sings well-known songs. Archie Cray, Harry Jones, and selections on the bioscope, together with extra turns, make a really enjoyable entertainmbnt. A cake walk competition will take place Friday night (Nov 22), and to give intending competitors an idea of how it should be performed a local man appears at each performance and undertakes the walk as a means of instruction. 44 Coal King," the thrillingly realistic drama by Messrs Polini and Maitland's Company, which will be staged next week, will form a most attractive feature. It is a mining play, and will be especially interesting in this part of the country, where, although coal is the staple industry, people have not the remotest idea of the interior of the coal mine. A pit is being dug 20ft below the stage, and two huge cages will descend and ascend the shaft. There will be a vivid representation of the lamp room, engine room, and of the workings. An explo- sion scene is very realistic, and has been praised by the London press. The drama has been written by two Welsh mining engineers, and the company come to Barry straight from the Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham, and the scenery and property cost over JE500.

OLD AGE COUGHS. LADY OF 70 CURED. AN EXTRAORDINARY CASE. Very few elderly persona are free from a more or less chronic cough in some form or other, go the following account of the cure by Veno's Lightning Cough Cure of an old lady of 70, who suffered from chronic cough, and was given up by the doctors, is of vital interest. Mr T. H. Pantis, of 75, Mount Pleasant, Southampton, writes I really must tell you of the remarkable cure effec- ted by Veno's Lightning Cough Care in the case of my wife's mother, an old laey of 70 years. She was taken very ill with a bad cough, which became chronic, and the doctor said she could never get better.

Reaching the Masses. 0;0 POPULAR SUNDAY EVENINGS AT BARRY DOCK. How to reach the masses has been the prob- lem which for many years past has perplexed the minds of many ministers and church mem- bers. Many methods have been tried, some successful, and some signally successful. To the former claas belongs the meeting—the first of the series—which was held on Sunday even- ing last at the Victoria Theatre, which, through the kindness of Mr John Johnson) proprietor, has been lent for these meetings. Mr W. Cooper conducted the service throughout, and loug before the appointed time to start—8.15 p.m.— the commodious theatre was well filled, and by about eight o'clock it was packed to the door. Among the audience could be seen a large number of the identical class for which the meetings were mainly intended-the class to which the too often rigid atmosphere of the church does not appeal. Mr Cooper was in a singularly happy vein, and his 20 minutes' was full of homely and bright evangelistic services, and was listened to with interest and attention by the assembly. Miss Daisy Wynd- ham's rendering of a sacred solo added to the pleasant and helpful character of the meeting. Mr A. Hazell presided at the piano. So great a success has the venture been that the services will be continued next Sunday evening at the same time and place.

Barry Air Rifle League. An apparently formidable protest has been entered by the Hibernians against the Y.M.C.A. match in which the former were beaten. The grounds upon which is laid are that a certain player was not registered sufficiently long enough to shoot in a League match, and that the marking was unfair, and a fuither charge is 44 the question- able methods of some of the Y.M.C.A. shooters." Doubtless, Buch sweeping and general eharges will be specifically proved at the meeting on the 25th inst:, and exact instances given. Fenney's are again on the warpath, and atoned for their defeat by the Buffs in the previous week, by securing a victory over the Wenvoes. By-the- bye, what was the League cup doing there last week-gcing the rounda on show, it is to be pre- sumed, prior to coming back to Fenney's in the end. The Witchills were not able to do any great shooting against the Workmen's Institute, only scoring 333, but the Royals picked well, and notched 350 against the Barry Dock Conservatives, the latter being beaten by 10. Captain Evans and C. B. Griffiths had a good tussle for last shots. C.B., however, beat his opponent by 32 to 30. A surprise of the week was the fact of the R.A.O.B., who, in the week previous, spoiled Fenney's un- broken record, coming down badly to the Y.M.C.A., to the tune of 11 points. J. J. McCutcheon's absence may, perhaps, partly account for their low score of 325. The following table shows the position of the teams to date:- Team Shot Won Drn.

Robberies in the District -0- Aa epidemic of robbery seems to have broken out in the district. On Wednesday evening last, whilst Mr J. Stapleton and his family were at the Barry Chrysanthemum Show, his house was broken into and a ladies' gold watch, other valuables, and some money were taken from it. On the same evening also Barry Dock automatic machines suffered at the hands of some depredators, who forced open the sweet- meat machines and the weighing machine, and rifled the money drawers attached to them. Other attempts were also reported about the same time. On Sunday evening, however, some more robberies took place, the venue this time being the lock-up shops at the docks, those of the Naval Ironmongery Stores and Messrs Tuck's rubber stores being forced into and a small sum of money and some cigars were stolen.

Mission Van Damaged. -0- The Livingstone Missionary Van of the London Missionary Society, while stationed at Woodland road, Barry Dock in charge of Mis- sioner Hodge, was on Sunday nigot made the objective of some mischievous persons. While Mr Hodge was away these persons stole the flowers from outside the van, broke the flower pots, and threw in a stone through the window of the van, smashing a pane. The other panes were also smeared with mud. Had Mr Hodge beeu in the van at the time he might have received serious injury from the stone, as he would have been sitting opposite the window. Great indignation is expressed in many quar- ters the outrage, which is believed to be the outcc e of mistaken identity, as being connec- ted w. h the Kensit mission in the town.
Popular Special Services »W)o«ilfl UNITED METHODIST GATHERINGS. On Sunday last, the chapel anniversary of the Court-road United Methodist Church, fami- liarly known as the Bible Christian Church, was held, when in the morniug, the Rev W. A. Cooper, pastor of Buttrills road Church, preached to a large congregation an inspiring sermon. In the afternoon, a special musical service tcok place, at which Councillor W. J. Williams, J.P., presided. An excellent pro- gramme of sacred music was gone through, the choir under the conductorship of Mr J. Davis, ably rendering Nichol's anthem, 4 O worship the King' (the solo part of which was taken by Mrs De La Haye), and the Hallelujah Chorus. The soloists were-Miss F. Dure (soprano), who sang 4 Come unto Me, ye weary in a very effective manner; Mrs Gwylim Davies (contralto), Mr George Phillips (tenor), and Mr Dan Evans (baritone). Miss Louie Kane's elocutionary efforts were also very good, sopecisily in The Last Hymn.' Mrs Gwilym Davies excelled in her rendering of 4 Abide with Me' and 40 Holy Man of sorrows.' During the afternoon, addresses, appropriate to the occasion, were given by the Chairman and Rev D. T. Davies, B.A., B.D., of Bethel Presyterian Church, Cadoxton, whilst in the evening the Rev J. A. Dobson officiated, and the choir rendered the chorus, 4 We never will bow down.' On the Monday following, the usual public tea and meeting were held, which proved suc- cessful in every respf ct. The chair at the meeting was taken by Mr F. E. Murrell, of Barry, several local ministers speaking. On the Tuesday, a well attended China Missionary meeting took place, the speakers being the Revs R. H. Little, Gloucester; C. J. Clarke, and J. A. Dobson.

THE INFLUENZA SEASON. SOME VALUABLE HINTS ABOUT A NEW AND STRIKING EFFECTIVE TREATMENT. Influenza takes so many varying forma with every new outbreak that doctors are often puzzled to recognise the trouble. Yet there are two points common to all the common phases of influenza first, the microbe which causes the disease is always the same active, virulent. and deadly germ, bred in crowded city slums secondly, the germ always nnda its way into the blood through the throat and lungs, it floats about in the air, and is breathed into the system. Just now is the Influenza season of the year, for the heavy, clammy air holds and fosters the microbes. First of all you feel as if you had been hard at work for a week without sleep then your throat begins to ache, and your voice gets hoarse, and the throat feels relaxed and painful. Your head throbs, there is a dull pain behind your eye- balls and at the back of your neck. You are shiver. ing all over, yet you are all on lire inside. With a box of Peps always handy, you can defy the worat epidemic of influenza, for the wonderful medicinal fumes which arise aa Peps dissolve plea. santly in the mouth, are powerfully antiseptic and germ-destroying. Against influenza Peps provide the strongest possible defence, for they fortify the throat, lungs, and broncl ial tubes with a medicine which goes direct to the vulnerable parts, thus expelling the disease and destroying its cause. Liquid medicines are worse than useless, since they can only be swallowed into the stomach, and can- not possibly reach the lungs, to say nothing of the weakening and relaxing effect of the laudanum, chloral, morphia, and other deadly narcotics these mixtures usually contain. This wonderful breathe-able medicine in solid tablet form is of special value in the treatment of the deadly after-effects of influenza. During that critical period of convalescence after the fever has left you, a regular course of Peps will strengthen lungs and bronchial tubes, effectually preventing pneamonia and pleurisy, and check- ing that well-known influenza cough which is often the most obstinate sequel of an attack of influenza. Keep Peps always handy, especially during the influenza season. But beware of worthless substi- tutes. See the short distinctive title—Peps—on the box and on every tablet.

ATHLETIC NOTES. -0_" [BY ATHLETE."] -0- The possibility of Barry District ever winning an away match is becoming more and more remote as the season advances. A win was expected against Llanbradach on Saturday last —a cup tie match-and as Barry had scored such an easy victory over them at the beginning of the season, this was the least that could be expected. But Barry were again defeated, this time by two goals to nil. As has been said before, Barry's defence is keen, and this was the feature that struck the Llanbradach spectators on Saturday. Yarr, at half, was brilliant. After defeating the Island United on their home ground on Saturday week, it was expec- ted that the District Reserves would pull off a victory fairly comfortably against Barry West End. But again the unexpected happened, and the visiting team to the Park were sent away having tasted the bitterness of defeat to the extent of three goals to one. The game throughout was very strenuous, but the home- sters were the better combined team, although at times, and particularly in the latter half, the play of both sides was a little too vigorous. However, a keen local rivalry may account for this. SUMMER SBABON, 1907. Plonee caU on D. LLOYD & Co. for High-class Ladies' and Gents' Tailoring, Newest Materials, Best Finish, Smart Cut.

An exceedingly well-played match was wit- nessed at Ebbw Vale between the premier Soccer team there and Barry Island United. In the first half of the game nothing was scored, but on the resumption the seasiders opened the scoring, Prince netting two fine goals. Ebbw Vale then pressed and notched two, equalising points, bnt Jones, of Barry Island, by bit of brilliant play, scored a well- placed goal, and almost up to the call of time the visitors led. At this juncture, however, owing to one of the Barry players being a little over-eager to save his goal from danger, Ebbw Vale secured a penalty, which Talbot put in nieely, and the game ended in a draw of three goals each. Bravo, United ——— Barry Rugby team will shortly be getting a name for itself by not fulfilling fixtures. One would have thought that since the re-organisa- tiun the enthusiasm of the players would at least lead to them fulfilling fixtures. However, on Saturday they were to have played Penarth Reserves at Penarth, and the home team waited until about four o'clock, but no sign appeared of the Barryites! There was nothing for it, therefore, but to disperse, which they did, much annoyed, so it is statod, at Barry's failure to turn up without sending any intima- tion If this last statement be true, it will not enhance the Barry Rugby Club's reputation in the eyes of South Wales teams. The Seconds, however, by dint of plodding, turn out regularly for the matches, and lost by two tries at the Buttrills against Llanishen. Barry Dock Albions had a disappointment also. Penylan were to have played them, but did not turn up, and no match was, therefore, played. Barry West End Reserves-a very strong junior combination, comprising a considerable number of the Old Barry Railway Offices team —met the Y.M.C.A.'s team on the latter's ground. The game throughout was very ex- citing, and the Y.M.C.A. had hard lines several times. At half-past two the latter were lead- ing. On resuming the West End started to press vigorously, and notched a goal, Lennie Jenkins being prominent with some good runs up the field. Bell, however, brought off some fine saves, and eased matters a little, but shortly before time he, unfortunately, in kicking out of goal, kicked the ball against a player and it rebounded into the goal mouth, I and the result was a draw of two goals each. *'Dod Radcliffe was particularly noticeable by his good play. The County School first team is rapidly approaching fine playing form, and with such doughty opponents as the Higher Grade Old Boys they succeeded in being the victors to the no uncertain tune of three goals to nil. The County School younger protegees had very hard lioes against Romilly road in the morning, the final score being one goal each. Owing to the measles outbreak at Penarth, 8t Helen's and Gladstone road School did not play, but the latter team, however, indulged in a friendly encounter with Hannah street, and were soundly trounced as a result by five goals to nil. Hannah street seem to show improve- ment each week. Holton still go on in their conquering course, and it is a coincidence to relate that each Saturday either Pritchard, Lee, or Garwood succeed in scoring goals for their side. The final score last Saturday read Holton, 5 goals —Lee 2, Hawkins 1, Garwood 1, and Pritchard 1. High street, 2 goals (Sanders 2). Holton United used the District field to play Park Villa, Cardiff, in a League encounter. Both teams were evenly matched, and a closely-contested game was witnessed, but eventually the Barryites proved superior by 3 goals to nil. Other local results are:-Castleland Villas 2 goals, Lombard street nil; Woodland United 3 goals, Cardiff University Settlement nil: High street Old Boys 6 goals, Barry Secondary School 1 goal; Barry Villa 3 goals (Price, James, and Burbidge), Cathays Albions 2.
WINTER ECZEMA. AN AGONISING COMPLAINT CURED. ZAM-BUK CURES WHERE CHEAP OINT- MENTS FAIL. There are thousands of people now just begin. ning the annual torture of Winter eczema. Sickly, unhealthy skins soon break down under the stress of cold and rain. It is advisable for all our readers to note the first symptoms of chaps, cold-sores, or pimples, for these very often are the first signals of an outbreak of skin disease. In such cases as these the great remedy is Zam-Buk, a pure, herbal, medicinal balm, which gets right down to the root of the trouble, and soothes and cures in both acute and chronic cases. w w < I had my first attack eight years ago," says Mr George Thompson, of Wolseley Bridge, near Stafford, when an eruption broke out on my hands and arms, which swelled and discharged a great deal. When my doctor had done all he could for me I was still very bad, and became an in-patient at the Birmingham Queen's Hospital. During the first week in the hospital the erup- tions discharged a great deal, and I had to lie on my back with my arms upon a rack for some time. The doctors told me I was suffering from gouty eczema (the severe form of the disease which is most prevalent and damp in cold weather). I im- proved under the treatment, but when I came out of the hospital the doctor told me the disease might break out again any time. It did come upon me again, and in a most horrible way. I was soon one mass of sores from head to foot. my eyes were all made up, and my hair came off my head. • • • "The doctor said it would kill me. He said be never saw anyone in such a condition. The disease took the form of large discoloured lumps, which discharged a lot of nasty, sticky fluid. My wife used to wash me night and morning, and sponge me all over. I need not describe the agonies I went through. I had all kinds of reme. I dies, and I was bathed with special soaps. In I fact, I tried a lot of ointments and medicines, which, however, only seemed to drive the disease in instead of killing it. I suffered constantly for twelve months, and then my skin came off in scales from head to foot, like the scales of a fish. It peeled off two or three times, and ever after- wards I had a return of this scaling every year, especially in the winter months. While I was suffering very badly I read about Zam-Buk, and got a sample box. I was led to get a full supply, and noticed how the applications began to put the skin into a much healthier condition. The peeling or scaling by degrees got less, the sores were grad- ually healed up, and now, after persevering with Zam-Buk, I am entirely free from the distressing disease which tortured me so long. Nor have I had any return of it since. My cure is all the more wonderful, seeing that I am nearly 80, and I am convinced that Zam-Buk has no equal as a pure skin-cure."
