Lloyd, the president of the Association. An address on Patriot- ism was delivered by Mrs. Agnes Slack, who described her visits to different parts of the British Empire. CYMRODORION Socirry.-The Committee of this Society met on Tuesday evening, the Rev. J. R. Dewi Williams in the chair, in order to discuss the general policy of the Society and the work for the forthcoming year. It was resolved to write the Education Committe asking them to grant scholarships for the Welsh Summer School to teachers. It was also decided to consult the Aberdare Branch of the N.U.T. with reference to arranging a united demonstration of children on St. David's Day. It was resolved to write Mr. P. D. Thomas, the Secretary of the Evening Schools Committee, urging that Committee to arrange a series of classes in Welsh in various centres in connection with the Evening Schools and Evening Construction Classes.

EVERLASTING. There are some cyclists who never geem to have a new machine, but ride the same bicycle year after year. "My word, that machine must be a good one; is it going to last for evei-t" is a remark which has frequently been addressed to Mr. W. S. Park- ingson, of Greaves Road, Dewsbury. Mr. Parkingson bought a second-hand Centaur bi- cycle twelve years ago, and soon found that he had got hold of a good thing-so good, in- deed. that he still ridee it. As he weighs thir- teen stone, and has ridden over forty thousand miles on this machine without any trouble, one can understand that there is something in bi3 statement that to him "the name Centaur means the very best of everything in cycling." Centaur cycles may be seen at MR. J LEWIS'S, 355, High Street, Penydarren, Merthyr Tydfil.
I Aberdare and ,Electric Lighting. I TENDERS FOR THE STATION. On Tuesday a special meeting of the Aberdare District Council was held, when a further step was taken in reference to the electric lighting of the towu. It will be recalled that some four years ago the District Council went in for a Parliamentary Bill to carry out a scheme for an electric tramway service through the town, the erection of a refute destructor, and the widening of the streets. The tramway scheme was struck out of the Bill, bnt the other things were allowed. The Council proceeded with the street widening, including the construction of a now road from Aberaman to Cwmaman, which was opened last year. They also a month ago let the contract for the refuse destructor. Having failed to obtain r the tramway scheme, which it was intended to work from the refuse destructor, the Council some twelve months ago made application for a pro- visional order for the electric lighting of the centre of the town, the power to be supplied by boilers in connection with the refuse destructor which will be erected on a portion of the old Gadlys Estate, where the Gadlys ironworks once stood. This was obtained, and on Tuesday the Council met under the presidency of Mr. T. Lewis, J.P., to consider the tenders for the erection of the building and installation. Three tenders were received for the erection of the building, the tender of Mr. D. Tyssul Davies, Aberdare, for £ 1,085, being accepted. There were eighteen tenders for the erection of the generating plant, the tender of the Lancashire Dynamo and Motor Co., for £3,312, being accepted. For the batteries, nine tenders were received but the acceptance in this ease was left in the hands of Mr. Sellons, the electrical expert, be to select the best contract for maintenance. There were seven tenders for the cables, and the tender of the Callender Cable and Construction Co., for 28,247, was accepted. «.
Orchestral Concert at Aberdare. On Thursday evening, as briefly reported in our last issue, the W. J. Evans' Orchestra gave their third annual concert, which was well attended by a very appreciative audience. The surplus pro- ceeds from this concert are to be devoted towards furthering the musical edncation of Master Brinley Lewis, Aberaman, who has shown pro- mise of becoming a very efficient French horn player, if placed under good tuition. The society are to be warmly commended for their efforts in furthering the interests of orchestral music in Wales, which at present is not in a very flourishing condition. The voeajist engaged for the occasion was Miss Blodwen Lloyd, who made her debut before an Aberdare audience. She contributed three items to the programme, Solveig" (Greig), Oh! that we two were Maying "(Nevin), and the celebrated scena, "Softly sighs," by Carl von Weber. She is a singer of great promise, possessing a very flexible voice of great range and power. Master Brinley Lewis gave a very good rendering of Godard's Angels guard thee" on the French horn. His playing of this excerpt showed great promise of future efficiency, although his intonation was once or twice a little skaky. In time, and with assiduous practice, he will undoubtedly develope into a fine player on this difficult orchestral instrument. Mr. J. E. R. Teague, of Cheltenham, contri- buted two items on the 'cello, which were rapturously received by the audience. Hit, playing displayed to the full his mastery over the technique of this beautiful instru- ment. Another debutante was a young pianist in the person of Miss Phyllis Jones, of Car- diff, who played Mendelssohn's concerto No. 1 in G minor. She gave a good rendering of this beautiful and interesting composition, and the encore she obtained was well deserved. She responded with the Hunting Song," from Men- delssohn's Songs without words." The orches- tral items were as follows:—" Suite Espagnole (Lacome) in three numbers, descriptive of Spanish' life and scones "Czardas No. 2" (Michiels) a very beautiful and dainty Hungarian dance; overture to the "Bartered Bride" (Smetana) "Humoreske op 101 (Dvorak) which received a very clever reading on the part of the conductor March, Des Ftits Mat'lots (Louis Gaune) a very spirited march which was received with great applause. The chief orchestral item was the production of the Ballet Egyptieh (Luigini). This suit, four numbers of which were played, is a striking com- position which reproduces the warmth and colour- ing of the East; and the rendering which the orchestra gave of each number showed the great progress which the society has made since the last annual concert. Of the conductor nothing need be said but that he continues to give original and interesting readings of the compositions which are played by the orchestra. The leader of the orchestra was Mr, Arthur Angle, of Cardiff, which is tantamount to saying that the work was efficiently done. Amongst other orchestral players of note present in the band were Mr. J. Duys, of Bath, Mr. C. Winterbottom, London, Mr. Whit- aker, Swansea, Messrs. Teague, Cheltenham, Gondman, Swansea, Paul Draper, Penaith, and Ralph Livsey, Merthyr. The arrangements for the concert wer« in the hands of the hon. secretary Mr. Hugh Thomas, Elim Grove, an assiduous worker to whom much of the success was due, assisted by the committee, amongst the most prominent of which were Mr. David Jones, Mr. James Minetb (senior), and Mr. J. Arkite Phillips. During the evening, Mr. Angle explained that he had great pleasure on behalf of the W. T. Evans Orchestra of asking Mr. Evans to accept from the members of the society as a small token of appreciation of his ser- vices to the society, the music cabinet which, was then placed before them on the stage. He dilated on the services which Mr. Evans had rendered the town of Aberdare, and described him as one of the finest conductors in South Wales. Mr. W. T. Evans responded in a short speech which was characterized by much feeling as the whole affair had been kept a surprize until the last moment. The pianoforte accompaniments to the vocal items were played by Prof. Richard Howalla in bis usual efficient manner* [
ABERDARE DISTRICT-COUNCIL ANNUAL MEETING. MR. T, LEWIS ELECTED CHFAIRMAN. On Monday, the annual meeting of the Aber- dare District Council was held at the Town Hall, Coun. E. Stonelake was voted to the chair pro tern, There were also present. Couns. W. Thomas, T. Lewis, Lewis Noah Williams, D. P. Dav ies, David Davies, William Harper, Morgan John Harries, T. Walter Williams, Rees Llewellyn, J. Owen George, H. H. Evans, W. M. Hann, D Jackson Thomas, T. Bowcn, A. P. Jones, Illtyd Hopkins, W. Reey, Col. T. Phillips (clerk), Mr. IIv. Beddoe (deputy clerk), Mr. Owen Williams (surveyor), and Dr. M. J. Rees (Medical Officer of Health). On the motion of Mr. T. W. Williams, se- conded by Mr. R. Llewellyn, Mr. T. Lewis, the retirill vice-chairman, was unanimously elected chairman for the forthcoming year. --Mr. Lewis, on taking the chair, returned thanks for the unanimous way. in which he had been selected. They were ail, with the excep- tion of Mr. Eyam, old members, so he felt that ho would not have a difficult task in ruling over them during the forthcoming year, and he re- lied upon their support. Mr. L. N. Williams proposed the election of Mr. M. J. Harries to the vice-chair, remarking that by process of seniority he was entitled to it.—Mr. D. p. Davies seconded the motion.— Mr. M. J. Harries pointed out that he was not the senior. Both Messrs. T. W. Williams and D, Davies had prior claim, to his on the ground of seniority. It was pointed out, how- ever, that the rule for some time past had been for the chairman of the Finance Com- mittee to be promoted to the vice-chair, and a6 Mr. Harries was the chairman of the Finance Committee last year it was his turn to become vice-chairman of the council. — Mr. T W. Williams said that as far as he was concerned he waived any right which by seniority he might possess.—Mr. D. Davies also supported the appointment of Mr. Harries, which was carried unanimously, and Mr. Harries, in tak- ing the vice-chair, thanked them for the honour they had conferred upon him. It was no am- bition of his to go into the chair, but as it was their unanimous wish he had greaf pleasure in complying, and he would endeavour tu dis- charge the duties to the best of his ability. The Chairman then moved a vote of thanks to the retiring chairman, Coun. E. Stonelake. He said they had all been proud of the way he had presided over their meetings. He had been most, painstaking and attentive to the business of the Council. — The Vice-chairman seconded the motion, and said that Mr. Stone- lake had been most impartial in his ruling in the chair, and he could look back to his year of office with great pleasure. The resolution was unanimously carried with acclamation. Councillor Stonelake, in "esponding, said he was very pleased to have the privilege of pre- siding over that Council for the past year. Like every other chairman he had been natu- rally during the year brought into close touch with the work of the Council, and one fact that had imoressed itself on him was that although the Council had done much, much more still remained to be done which would be to the advantage of the residents. When he was ap- pointed to the chair a year ago, cne of the Cardiff papers honoured him with a leader, in the oourse of which they pointed out that a Socialist ha*1 been elected the chairman of that Council Apparently they thought that in elect- ing a Socialist the Council had elected a man with "a tile off" (laughter), and that they might, look out for squalls. During his year of office, however, they had not had a single squall (hear, hear). He did no* attribute that to his tact and ability, but he might point out that he liadj not been once called upon to strictly en- froce the standing orders. He had to thank every member of the Council for the assistance rhey had given him in carrying out his duties during the year. Passing on to deal with the work of the year, he pointed out that in the past they had been spending some JB500 every half year on private streets improvement, now they had doubled that, and the work would be accelerated accordingly. At the last Council meeting they signed the contract for the refuse destructor, ar.d he hoped that in twenty-four hours the contract for the electric lighting scheme would be also accepted. The new road to Cwmaman had also been completed, so that the year had been one of great importance. Future years would, however, be still more im- portant, and great works would have to be entered upon. He knew some of them differed from the rest as to the desirability of some of the schemes taken up, but once the Council had entered upon the work he knew that they all would do their best to carry out the works successfully (hear, hear). He again thanked every one of them for the assistance they had rendered him during the year (loud applause). With the exception of electing Mr. Stonelake, the retiring chairman, a member of all the committees of which Mr. John Harries, the new vioe chairman, was a member, and substituting the name of Mr. H. H, Evans for that of Mr. D. T. Davies, on all the committees of which the latter sat, and adding Messrs. R. Llewellyn and H. H. Evans to the Roads, Streets and Scavenging Committee, all the committees of the Council were re-elected for the year. On the question of the appointment of the Education Committee coming up, Mr. T. W. Williams asked the Clerk to explain the scheme. — The Clerk said he had not the scheme by him, but the Education Committee included the whole of the Council, and one lady. — A member said that. Mr. Hann resign- ed last year.—Mr. D. J. Thomas moved that the whole Council and Mrs. Davies be re-elect- ed.—The Clerk: You must move the whole Council first.—Mr. W Rees: Are we to un- derstand that Mr. Hann resigned last year?— Mr. Hann: I tried, but could not.—Mr. M. J. Harries: I understood that we might elect 19 'members of the Council.—Mr. R. Llewellyn moved that the whole Council be elected, and this was unanimously agreed upon.—Mr. D. J. Thomas then moved that Mrs. Rose Davies be elected as the lady member. That was in accordance with the wishes of the Trade and Labour Council, and she had proved a most attentive, and a very useful member of the Committee.—Mr. W. Rees seconded.—Mr. R. Llewellyn moved the election of Mrs. Richards, who had for several years proved a most useful member of the Committee.—This was second- ed by Mr. E. M Hann, but on being put to the meeting only six voted for Mrs. Richards, several remained neutral, and a unanimous vote was then recorded in favour of Mrs. Davies.
Aberdare League of Young Liberals. LIBERALISM AND LABOUR. On Tuesday evening, at the Liberal Club, Aberdare, Mr. W. J. Evans in the chair, Mr. D. W. Evans gave a very interesting address on Liberalism and its relation to Labour." Mr. Evans, in opening, spoke of the importance of such a subject in an idustrtial centre like Aberdare. It was, he said, such topics as this that needed threshing out, and deserved open discussion in the League. The nation to which we belonged had made, during the past ten or twelve years, most wonderful strides in com- merce and art, while untold victories had been made in science. The emancipation of man had brought about to a marked degree the liberty of thought and action. Liberalism ever grew with civilization, and the right of judgment with Liberalism. We should have been a generation or more advanced at present had we not been thwarted again and again by the Conservative Party when in power. As to a definition of Liberalism—it was his opinion that so wide a subject could never be confined or limited to one set phrase or definition. It it were defined now, it would vary a hundred years bence according to the advanced state of time, place, and civilization. The motto or method, however, would remain steadfast for all time, namely, Progress "—ever moving onward towards better and nobler things. It really endorsed all aspirations towards a better future, whilst making the very greatest effort to get there. The Conservative Party had often retarded this progress, but the Labour Party, and Liberalism, had always done the very best for true labour. Liberalism was the very best friend of the true working man, and as a rule he knew it. Liberalism was thoroughly democratic it included every kind of labour, and looked after the interests of the workmen. There were useful relations such as trades unions and societies of employers, which had materially helped in the keeping of peade. They had mutually assisted education. As to State interference, it was sometimes necessary. He referred to Mr. Lloyd George's interference in the railway strike last year. This should, however, only be resorted to as a last straw. It should be possible to arrange and settle disputes by conciliation boards and arbitration between the employer and employees. Even trades unions might become very autocratic and needed the aid of other than workmen to guard the interests of the workmen himself. Mr. Evans then referred to the world-wide acts of the Liberal Government during the past few years-the Compensation Act, Trades Disputes Act, Old Age Pension, Miners' Hours Act, Insurance, &c., &c. The lecturer then condemned the Socialistic policy, stating that it was altogether an economic fallacy." It misrepresented things, and distorted them, and required some strong influences to put the issue plain, clear, and straightforward. As Alderman Hughes once said, The Welsh miner is still a Nonconformist at heart."— Many members took part, making a very inter- esting discussion, and included the following :— Miss Evans, Messrs. G. Powell, W. J. Evans, C. V. Lewis, Jas Evans, W. R. Williams, H. Davies, J. M. Jones, &c. I
The city is to control the nation; Christianity must control the city, and it will.—Dr. Josiah Strong. Have a purpose in lifo, and, having luiu. such strength oi mind and muscle into your your work God 1 < r> ou.—Carlyle.

A very amusing dialogue ensued between the parties, in tho oourse of which much of the family history carna out. Eventually the Stipendiary called them to order, remarking that the comedy could not go on any longer. Complainant went on to say that her husband was a very jealous man, and frequently pointed to a photo of a woman which was <1m the wall in their house saying, "She ought to have been my wife." —The Bench made an order for 10:i. a week. Later on man and wife were seen having a friendly chat in a corner of the court, and the Stipendiary was heard to whisper. "They will make it up again before they leave." THEFT.—Frederick Lenman was charged with stealing a pair of boots.

He was cross-examined on this point by Mr. Edwards, but adhered to bis story. He admitted, however, that he received a cheque for wages from Mr. Edwards on the undertaking that when he got JS40 from home he would let Mr. Edwards have that amount. When he got the £40, however, he did not hand it to Mr. Edwards, but used it to pay wages due. He had accounted forthejMOin his accounts. It was a part of the sum of JB300 entered in the account as money put by him into the business.—Ultimately, on the application of Mr. J. D. Thomas, the examination was closad.

At the conference the Rev.

ABERAMAN. AMUSEMENT.—A remarkably fine show is presented at Poole's Picture Palace, this week, the bioscope pictures covering a wide range of subjects. OBITUARY.—On Thursday afternoon last Mrs. Gwen Jones, GO, Regent-street, passed away, after a comparatively long illness, at the advanced age of 74 years. j BATHS.—The baths at the Public Institute J were opened on Monday, and during the day 218 persons paid for admission. The attend- ance on the subsequent days was also very good. GWAWR.—A preaching cymanfa was held at this church, on Sunday, the preachers being students of Gwynfryn School, Ammanford. They were Messrs. Edwards and Roberts, both of Carmarthenshire. PRIZE PRESENTATION.—At the conclusion of the preaching services at Ynyslwyd, on Monday night, the following were presented with prizes for collecting towards the anniversary funds :— 1st, Master David Herbert Morgan 2nd, Master Daniel J. Jones; 3rd, Master Aneurin Evans 4th, Master Brinley Williams. ACCIDENT.—The opening of the season at the Public Institute Baths, on Monday, was attended by an unfortunate accident. Mr. J. Llewellyn, Brook-street, was turning a somer- sault off the spring-board when his fe«t came into awkward contact with the bath floor, and he sustained two broken toes. Dr. Glyn Jones was on the spot to render assistance in a very few minutes. ACCIDENT.—While travelling on the road to Pontypridd, on Thursday evening, one of the men employed on the motor wagon of the Rhondda Valley Brewery Co. fell beneath the hind wheels of the waggon. His body was considerably bruised, having been dragged several yards—from the outer gates of the parish church as far as Oakland Cottage. He was picked up and taken to the latter place, where he was attended to by Dr. D. T. Glyn Jones. PREACHING EXTRAORDINARY.—The Rev- J. Jenkins (Gwili) preached another remarkable sermon at Ynyslwyd Chapel, on Monday night. He took as his subject the temptation of Christ < in the wilderness. His congregation were somewhat shocked at the commencement, when he remarked that the conquests of Christ over Satan were subjective rather than objective. Christ had triumphed over his tendency to satisfy the material needs of the people, had triumphed over the Jews' predilection for making him a temporal king, and had cast aside a yearning to relieve the immediate wants of the nation. Instead of subjugating himself to the temptation of becoming a temporal social reformer he kept the larger issues of his life in view, and thus made himself the supreme social reformer of all ages. AN ANNUAL EISTEDDFOD.—A meeting of repre- sentatives of the musical and literary fraternity in Aberaman was held on Friday evening last, to consider the question of establishing an annual eisteddfod. The conveners, on behalf of the Public Hall Committee, were Messrs. Thomas Job Davies and Benjamin Stephens, and there WAS a good attendance. Councillor Tom Bawen occu- pied the chair, and advocated the claims of an eisteddfod as a means of general culture. He was followed by Mr. W. W. Price, the secretary of the Institute, who remarked that a day had been set apart in the lease for the purpose of providing an eisteddfod A proposition was made to bold the eisteddfod on a large scale in a marquee, but this was defeated, and is was decided to start on a moderate scale in October. Mr. Daniel Thorax was elected chairman, Messrs. Handel Harris and Jonah Rees were appointed secretaries, and Mr. Harry Powell was elected treasurer. The vice- chairman will be Mr. T. Job Davies. The follow- ing were then selected to serve on the various com. mittees, with power to add:—Musical Committee, Messrs. W. A. Beynon, Roger Williams, Gwilym Phillips, Charles Thomas, Tom Williams. George Moees, Wm. Richards, Sydney Stephens, H. A. Howells, Howell Thomas, Tom Parry, W. J. Williams. Literary Committee: Messrs. D. Davies (Gwynwawr), D. Davies (Margaret-street), Matt. Lewis, David Griffiths (Dewi Aeron), Wm. Collier, W. J. Phillips, J. J. Davies, Abel Jones, ) W. J. Nicholas. Finance Committee: Messrs. W. W. Price, D. J. Phillips, H. A. Howells, Illtyd Hopkins, T. George, Tom Bowen, D. E. Davies, Abraham Jones, J. Rees Davies, Tom Margan, Kedward, Dough ton. YNY8LWYD.—Special preaching services were held at Ynyslwyd Welsh Baptist Church, Aber- aman, on Sunday and Monday last, and fair congregations attended the meetings. The officiating ministers were the Rev. Hugh Jones, Llajielly, who is one of the stalwarts of the temperance cause in the Baptist denomination, and the Rev. J. Jenkins ("Gwili"), who has the reputation of being in full sympathy with the objects of the Labour Party. On Sunday morning the Rev. Hugh Jones took his text from I. Timothy, iiii., 4th verse. At the after- noon service, a sermon of an unusual and re- markable nature was delivered by "Gwili." The introductory portion of the service was conducted by the Rev M. Allen (son of the Rev. — Allen, Bryntroedgam). The preacher took as his text, "But seek ye first the king- dom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew vi., verse 53). He remarked that there was clearly arising in our midst to-day two evan- gels: (1) The gospel of "these things," i.e., materialistic; and (2) the Gospel of the King- dom of God. The former gospel was arising as a result of the democratic awakening in Europe, Japan, Persia, and other countries of the world. In this country, the claims of the baron and the squire were being superseded by the claims of the people. The leaders of the democratic movement were turning their at- tention to "the root of the evil," viz., the problom of the land. What was to their atti- tude towards this evangel? That was the great g topic for Wales at the present day. The Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man was the spirit of the Gospel of Christ's Kingdom, as well as of the democratic move- ment of to-day. But what was Christ's kingdom, which they should seek first? It was not a material kingdom. It was not Rome, but the impurities of Israel iteelf which formed the greatest enemy of the Israelites. This spiritual kingdom was not to rule over the material needs of man, but over his spiritual conditions. This new righteousness did away with Pharisa- ism and sham prayers, and taught them that conduct and prayer were to go hand in hand. They were to believe that good would super- sede evil, and the prayer, "Thj kingdom oome," was to refer to a kingdom not visible but unseen. To change the world without the individual was the great defect of the material- istic gospeL Jesus changed man, and in that fact lay the great secret of His success. —Both preachers delivered excellent sermons on Sunday night and on Monday, the services being conducted by the Rev. R. E. Williams (Twrfab), pastor). Mr. William Richards was precentor. »

Aberaman Horse and Agricultural Show. What was formerly known as the Ataramut Horse Show has now blossomed into an Agricul- tural Society. Those who know the Show Ground and the facilities concerning the same will readily recognise the fact that this is an excellent place to hold an agricultural exhibition. By the kindness of the Powell Duffryn Company and Mr. E. M. Hann, the ground has again been secured, and everything points to a successful exhibition. Readers will notice from our advertisement col- umns that the show is held this year later than usual, viz., on Juno 20th. This change has been made to meet the requirements of the agricultural element. Excellent judges have been secured in the cattle and horse classes. After a great deal of correspondence the Secretary has recently re- ceived notifications from the Board of Trade and railway companies that the cheap travelling facilities at a special low rate will be granted to exhibitors in order to assist the Society. The hackney judge hails from Cheshire, whilst the heavy harness expert comes from Lancashire. The exhibitors will have all the assistance possible at the hands of the Show Committee, and every ton* venience will be placed at their disposal. The secretary, as in former years, will be Mr. Tour Rees, Broad Oak Inn, Aberaman, from whom schedules may be obtained.
The New Cornish Curative Spa. Although the familiar phrase, "Cornish Ri4 yiera," owes its existence and popularity to the initiative of the Great Western Railway, the "Delectable Duchy" has from time immemorial been associated with all that concerns the min. eral wealth of England, and for over a century has been famous for its unique climatic advan- tages. If certain well authenticated rumours are to be credited it is quite possible that be- fore long St. Ives will be the site of one of the world's most famous health resorts, while the Trenwith waters will surpass in oelebrity, those of Carlsbad, Homburg, Castein, Kreus-l nach, Bath or Harrogate. According to the re* ports of Sir W. Ramsay and Mr. Norman Whitehouse the radio-active waters of Tren- with surpass in many respects those discovered elsewhere, and those in the know are confidenti that the formation of the St. Ives Consolidated Mines, Ltd., and the British Radium Corpora^ tion, Ltd., will mark an epoch in the his tor* ofi Coraflvalfc

A MARTYR TO BILIOUSNESS, It is with the greatest of pleasure,^ writesAMrs. Durham, of 22, King Street, u.1..4. v/ ugu iu U|: that I writa to express my satisfaction^# the benefit I have derived from taking Dr. Morse'# Indian Root Pills. I wat a martyr to Biliousness accompanied by dizzineSSJ when I was ad* vised to take Dr. Morse" Indian Root Pills. I found them a most excellent icmedy for the complaint men* tioned, so I can confidently recommend them as a wonderful medicine, whicll should be kept in every home." The first essential of good health is tel keep the stomaclj in a sound condition, It is not the quantity of food we eat^ but what we digest and assimilate, that nourishes the body. When the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition arc diseased, and the food eaten is only im- perfectly digested, there is loss of nutrition, and the body loses strength as a natural consequence. Not only does the system suffer from lack of nourishment, but tha derangement of the organs must causa further complications. Indigestion is < most prevalent cause of Constipatio which in its turn causes Biliousness and all its attendant evils. Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills get at the cause as no other remedy does. They aid the digestion and assimilation of food cleanse the stomach; purify the blood, and are a perfect remedy for all complaints arising from Kidney and Liver trouble, Indigestion, Constipation, and Female Ailments.
