BRYN SEio^ --The Literary Society closed its successful series of meetings on Thursday week, when an excellent repast was partaken of. The tables were attended to by the following ladies :—Mrs. Evans (Brynseion-street), Mrs. Davies (Vaughan-street), Mrs. Pugh (Russell- street), Mrs. Morgan (Walter-street), Mrs. Davies (Blaen Dowlais), Mrs. Dan P. Davies, Miss Williams (Catholic-row), and Miss Davies (Penrhiw House), assisted by a host of willing helpers. Praise is due to the treasurer, Mr. D. W. Davies (Muriel-terrace) and the secretary, Mr. W. J. Davies (Pembroke-place), Penydarren, upon whom much work fell during the session, which was carried out most satisfactorily. MR. C. R. JOHNSON, 16. David-street, Dowlais, S. Wales, writing on the 20th March, 1910, says :—" I claim to used Dr. Tibbies Vi-Cocoa for the last twelve years, as a rule, twice a day. I have tasted others in the meantime, which J have not found so nice to the palate or so refreshing as Vi-Cocoa, which I always use and never trouble now about any other." Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa promotes tone and vigour to those who use it, and brings back roses to the cheeks. The tired, languid feeling, which is the result of nervous exhaustion and brain fag, disappears when Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa a. packet of which can be obtained for sixpence) is daily used. This is owing to the great sustinent and vitalising powers which Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa so readily gives to those who use it regularly..
