CARNARVON v. DENBIGH. ANOTHER WIN FOR THE UNITED. (By "Reorder") Denbigh paid a visit—teieii* fret for many \<sare, to Carnarvon on Saturday, to met tilt) L nited 111 a Nor to V\ a.e« !,Ca..JfLLQ fixture- A good Sized orowd turned up to witness tho matoh, taw consistent 11 by the United duruig the -adl few nnoiiths having given an iiupotus to foot,lxul at Carnarvon, and in this connection it might be elated that tihe b'ckiaviour of the spectators has greatly unproved. Ttu-o one or two give the plavers reckless advice, but fortunately the novice hoi" tie spectators are treated 1 seriously- UeiilxgU played iour reserve men- whilst tihe home lot were it full su'engt-a. In chai-ge of Mr John Roberts, liangor, tHe Untune lined up as folio«i> Carnarvon: G- II. Jones; J. Trevor Williams and W. R. Thomuis; J. Griffiths, Huglwe, ajid J. \Viilia-ai9; Lt. H- Roberts, E. Huglie- W. Joneø, Tcai Roberts and J. Jones. Denbigh S. Griffit-h; S- Rcoj una T. A. Da- viee: D. G. illia,ii.t> L Evai e, and E Hugihes; K- K. Davieis, R- M. Evant, Tuck lie Id, T- Da- \>es, and R. Willia.mis- Though Carnarvon had the choice of oixle, they elect-ed to play down t.ho slope and face ttte sun, but deepie the latter disadvantage tiudgr made headway at once A fouJ, however, Pe."Ic". COHCtpt TlVo Polwts. After A T IFf FtfcMT. placed them on the defensive. J Trevor Wil- liams kicking clear with a mighty shot. Denbigh were very pertieteitf, especially on the right wing, whe>re W- R. Thomas had a vva.rm bandful. but he tackled well and cleared- To the great d^iigiit of tihe -I)cetatcrs Johnny JOl;es worked the ball ri¡tht along- the field. hie liuti riimt being captured by S. Griffiths, tiie Denbigh ttJwtockan. Directly afterwards. Toni Roberts, who tr¡f'ot his lack 1'1 1 new petition on the left ft in- lobbed tihe ball into t.ho goal,mouth, but it bounced over. R. Williams, tine Denbigh out- side Wt. initiated a nromiisins? movement, ajtd » partod well, but his colleague got offside. Carnarvon -were certainly having the best of the aohamgefe and just ae R. n. Robert* looked like getting through, E. Hughes neally dispcs- eeaeed him. Whilst endeavouring to kick the ball. WiHiams, the Denbigh right half, kicked the earth with such violence that he injured imeelf, and tihe game was delayed for a minute or so urutil be oame roundl The next item of irute.re'Jt was come clever, if not very useful individual work by L. Evains who diddled quite a number of opponents. POOR GOAL SHOOTING. Whilst Carnarvon were having the beet of tihe argument, their shooting in the direction of Che Denbigh goal was atrocioue. Jot imy JOllOO conveyed the ball along the leÚ wing. and from tihe region d tihe corner jxs-t whipped aoroes an elevated shot, and Tom Roberts iiad not the' slightest difficulty in heading the ball into the net- A minute or so afterwards J. Jones repeated his tiwiro of till perfonnanoe, but tiiis time T. A; Davios intrvetnoot. The Denbigh forwards advanced up the field in a line, a hopeful move ending in i- Daviss shooting very erratically. R. Williams, how- ever, sent in a terrific shot in clearing- which G. H. Jones showed no little ejeverii-ess. For Caj-narvon, Walter Jones nearly got through, after an individual Frrirt. Tom Roberts put in Carnarvon's second goal, though tlie preilimin- ary work.iiiutst be credited to R. H. Robeirts- Directly the game was restarted Waiter Jones darted down the tield at top ol)eed, and he and tJ-loe custodian met the ball at the same time- Fortunately for Denbigh, 'the ball rolled sligiit- wide of the post. Evan Hughes scored the third goal for Carntu-von during a lull in the game. the Denbigh defenders apparently think- ing he was offside. Towards the interval Car- narvon were pressing for all they were worth, Shots being rained on the Denbigh goal. The visiting forwards indulged1 in one or two runs, but before goal tihey were helpless- Half-time: Carnarvon 3, Denbigth nil. Carnarvon inaugurated the second half with a rush, and Evan Hughks should have scored- Than J. Jones sent over. DENBIGH REVIVE. The visitors, whose play up to this stage had been feeble, now revived. Tr.ey appeared more animated; the forwards combined better than they had hitherto done. and the halves fed tiheih better- L. Evans nearly did the trick after a fijie run- R. \Y ilhairg a thorn in the eidee of t'he Carnarvon defenders, though, after dedging two opponents, I tirued wildly- At len-jrti.i T- Davies opened Denbigh's account after a nice run. This goal led to an accession of mtereot in trio game, and both teams went at work, hammer and tongs. Decent shots we:e sent at the Carnarvon gc-al by L. Evans and E. E- DaviCti. The Denbigh custodian made a capi- tal save, Evan Hughes driving in when only a yard or two away from him- Denbigh main- aged to score again before the conclusion of tlhe game, which ended with the following score:- Carnarvon 3, Denbigh 2.

RUSSELL CHARITY CUk. GWYDR ROVERS v. GLODDAETH ROVERS, LLANDUDNO. A REGRETTABLE INCIDENT. These teams met on Saturday at Lianrwst in the lirist round :CJ. the Rufcueil Charity Cup.

The vLiitoiM iiaving won the t«,r. decided to face the town end- evidently impressed with tihe utility of a somewhat large and tjcen collection of rain water in the vicinity of the goal as a means of defence- The opening exchanges were confined tCI midfie.'d, and werre of a robust and energetic character. By a '.omewhat fluky move the visitors found themselves in the vici- nity of the homesters' citadel, and R. Evane, adanting himself to a fir.0 opportunity, opened the score .or his side- Tho hcirnesrc.rs then at- tacked with tihe energy that should have reap- ed a fire luairvest of goals, but either through exci!on.c:.it or over anxiety, they shot soimewhat wiJdJy. Alfso ;¡ the homesters attacked' with perti- nacity. t ey failed to penetrate the Seasid«rs' defet.e.- Tne visiiors' reserve fc.rt.'P, the rain water pool, was continually the scene of titanic cotrienition. Whenever the siphere dropped on its surface it stopped dead, a.nd the players in attenuating to rescue it wee often obliterated from view- by a veil of railing spray- At half- time the visitors led by one goal to nil- Two of the Gloddaeth men—Evans, inside left and 7, Griffith, the right half—taking advantage of the respite, limped out o". tiiie field', and took no further active into:est in the game- Play rceut'ned, the homesters attacked, and during th.e remaindr of the game I)-eni.ed their opponents in trout of their goal. A fine and weill timed shot by Mclntyre equalised matters, but tihe R<-osters were not satisfied with this, and devoted their whole energies to "go one better-" Mclni.yire with a plendid shot keiit in a bestuty, j)anc.'S in his attempt, to clear ap- peared to step at least a foot inside, the goal line- The si;rotators and the home playe-rs yeli- ed with glee, but the referee indicated a goal kick. The horopters prcfcccited w vain until lItt la&t one of the Uwydr backs ruslied up and kicked the placed bcJl into the net. The ma- jority of the crowd immediately invaded' the ground, and the referee became the centre o' attention. Mr Ma.rc!» was o-)on lost in a ring of excited youths, who were anxious to ex- pound the rules of the game to him. The re- fe-reo adored to his decision, and was some- what roiughJy hustled in conrequence. The wtrangle occupied a i>er;>l of six minutes- At lant t-ho ground was oleared, and' the game proceeded with. It terminated, hoveveT. with- out furt'-er scoring, the result -poing a draw.

HOLYHEAD v. BANGOR RESERVE. DEFEAT OF THE VISITORS* (By "Oybi.") The Bangor Reserve paid a visit lo Holy- head on JSaturday to fulfil a tio in the third round of the North Vv alt3 Amateur Cup oom- petation, and we-re defeated by 9 sroals to nil- The local team were in their hegt form, and maotioaily ran away with th-1C visitors who t-unnetl ci tlie field with a very weak team. Tirey had, liowevea, a few conspicuous players, who would do credit to a better class team, but the local eleven were in every respect euperior- rl!ue teams were — Hotlyrjoad Codlier Conlam, Parry Taylor, W. T. Jones, Ellis; 0. B. Etlwards, H. Roberts. J. Rowlands, R. Jones, and 11- Brown. Bangor Reserve: Ted Owen; Henderson, Harris; Stanley, Daviee, W. Jones; Owen, Jones, R. Jones, and W. Jones. UnfotrtunajttJy (c-cr the visitors, who played Qlne man short throughout the game, tney chose to face the ciun during the first half. Almost within a few niinuteo of tne ball being put in motion, Co-nlan, from a penalty. scored a beautiful goal, and in a second or two later Brown addott another- The spectators who as- sembled in gTeater numbers than on any other BrtHfeOW OUNIORi SYtTEFt A CRUSHING PEFEAT ocoasion this r%.r, were disappointed! to reo suoii a plXJof display on tho part of Bangor. Not once was the ball nea.r the homesters' net and this no doubt accounted for the easy way in which Holyhead played- After many at- tempts Hujrh Brown again added a beautiful goal to the total, and 0. B. Edwards, who made a. beautiful mn down the field, secured still another before 15 minutes of the play had! elapsed-
PILING ON THE AGONY. Tae visitors played for all they were worth, but it must be said that what they did was not worth, much, and in a short soace of time Brow 11 had eccwed another goal. No sooner had the leatiuor been in rmxion again than Jones s-cored the sixth goal- With the ecore standing at 6 to nil, the gamo in the second half was resumed with some vig- our. and Collier handled the ball for the first time. He was aafe enough and cleared- Tho play remained after this in tio-- Bangor quar- ters. Without muoh trouble Holyhead were able to add further goals, and when the whistle w.as finally sounded the score stood:- Holyhead 9, Bangor nil.
FRIENDLY lATCHES. NORMAL COLLEGE » BANGOR Y.M.C.A. This friendly match was played on the Nor- mals' ground at Bangor on Saturday, before a number of spectators, who witnessed a meet interesting g-ame. Mr C. J. Thonnas lined the teanL as :ollows — Normals: Price; Rowlands and Sharp; Ro- beiits, Attenboro', and Cros, tlanier, L. Evtuns, Whitney, Palfermann, and Turner. Y-M-C-A. Owen; \v II: Jcn.es and Fritz- Davies; J Owen, E. Hughes, and P- Tiiarme; Bert. Walkeir, R- H. Jones, A. uargie, NN. E. Joiieo. and II Smith- The Young Men won t.he toss, and with tlie ad vantage of the slope,' and with a brilliant sun in the eyes of their opponents, pradically penned tlie Collegians in their own hall for the first, twenty minutes. Dargie got through on two occasions, and made no mistake, and Smith was fcucoetssful in adding another- Dar- gio was in great form, azid was a source of danger to the Normals throughout, his shooting and passing being a treat to witness- His second goad was by far the befit of the match- A long punt by Attenboro enabled the Normal forward. to pay a visit to the other end, and Turner brilliantly taking advantage of a mis- understanding between the Y.M' full b^eks, ran through, and scored the Normals' only goal. Half-time: Y.M.C.A. 3, Normals 1. The eeccnd half was more evenly contested, the Normala showing excellent form. but they were unable to make any impression on tho reek-like defence of W- II. J-ones and Fritz Davies, who proved invincible. Final result: Y-M-C-A. 3, Normals 1. The Co;lege defence was at times shaky, and it was fortunate t- iat Attenboro' was in euoh excellent form, in Let lie was one ol the n I cs- prominent players yn It',Ie field. The Normal forward^ at times displayed nice combination, but their final efforts lacked' sting- Turner was the pick of their front rank- For the Y.M.C-A- Owen. in goal, gave a good display, some of his saves being f, i,.e F. Davios and W- H. Jones are a pair of Lacks. t:: latter especially,' his kicking end tackling being greatly admired- Of the liaives, J. ONien was the pick, although Hughes was not far be- hind, and was undoubtedly the hardest worker on the field. Tiie forwards all plajed well, and Dargie was the tohinie.g light- Smith a-i the centre o tener, and to rt, with the ball more freely, while Walker might with advantage remember his partner on the left.
COLWYN BAY SPARKS. Much joy prevailed in Colwyn Bay on Sat- urday c-venmg when it became known that tho HHods"haddefea.ted Rhyl by 5 goals to 3. This was their first win in an away match, a.nd that the news was at first doubted was not much to be wondered at. » » » » This success wae achieved through whole- hearted play and a firm determination to win. )t "Charlie," in goal, was roundi and could not be blamed for the shots that beat him. » • The backs wore a trifle shaky in the first half, but sound during the second 45. O. E. WdlianiB was suffering with his knee, so that his display was all the more praiseworthy. III The half-back Jino was quite formidable Wellings and Hughes played a great game, es- pecially the latter, whilst "Neddy" was at his very best. w < Moss Jones and Sktlcey were an ideal right wing—always a source of great danger. '# it « McCann scored four out of the five goals. His record against Rhyl this teason is 11 goals in three matches. S. Hughes and W. T..levies formed a gcod left, wing' pair, and completed a capital attack- ing lino. » There was no doubt tliat the "Reds" were the superior team, and fully deserved their victory. **#».. It was unfortunate that play became rough, and a]Gn, that the spectators got out of hand. This culminated in a rcgiettablo scene at the close of the game. On Saturday the "Reds" have no match, and a practice game has benn arranged for experi- mental purposes.
NOTES AND COMMENTS. (By "Critieu;s.') Though they we,re by far the better team, Carnarvon had a narrow escape on their own greatnrl last Saturday. In the first half they simply overwhelmed the Denbighites, who, aibout ten minutes aitef the interval, however, got into their ftride, a.nd kept the Carnarvon defence at full stretch during the rest of the proceedings. • • There was nothing particularly brilliant about the game, and tho muddy ground did not assist the players, whilst the bright nin caused the Carnarvon men., especially the ddTfenderij, to) kick wildly. Carnarvon's first goal followed a pretty run along the left by J. Jonea, vho appears to have recovered his form, and he parted to. the ever rea.dy Tom Roberta, wrtO promptly piloted the ball into the net wi.J1 lie head. » Caxiiar-von then preeeed for all they v He worth, R. H. Roberts repeatedly conveying trie ball tq the Denbigh end, vaere the defenders were not oveimfe, and before the "interval arrived Carnarvon wore three goals to the good The ga-mo wore a. dilferent complexion in the second half, and Denbigh soon scored. Aflkr this the game resolved iteelf into a ding dong struggle, with Denbigh giving full value for their money, and before the end of he rnat.;a they scored a second goal. However, they failed to bag a single point. it !II Denbigh mtomitte-d the gre&t error of taking ma-tters too lightly at the start., and if they lisd opened an well as they finiished the final ecorc would have been different reading. The-game, however, showed that Carnarvon are a force to be reckoned with just now. • • » The United custodian was not oeveroly taxed,, but the full backs were, and they came out of the ordeal with flying colours. In the.hail- back line J..Griffith \HlS- as liv-ely as evor, and played a clean game. H. H.'Roberts was the pick of the forwards, with Tom Roberts and J. Jones not far behind him.
HOLYHEAD WHISPERS. Bangor did mot a^ear at Holyhead on Sat- urday witlh their beet team but one or two of them would do credit to a Reserve team- ft Two good! pi-avers oa-iiiniot make up for the jndinefcmt playing of eignt men. Holyhead excelled them.-xsives on Saturday. Collier had the unique experience of only handling tine ba,l once throughout tihe game. « The local captain played one of his best games- It is an unvueual thing !or him to make a bad show, but on dhia ocoas.on he was in his best form. » « Parry had an easy afternoon's work. • » • Taylor sliould renaeanber that lie h some players to feed- Diok Ellis eeenis to improve with every match- v » ■> • Holyhead are not at all sanguine of winning to-morrow (Saturday).

LLANDUDNO RESERVE v. CONWAY RESERVE. TRYING NEW PLAYERS. This return friendly fixture was played on tho Council Field, Llandudno, en Saturday- The following p la vers t-uri;.ed.out:- Llandudno: 11.

Tho- mas: Jones-Griffiths, J. Jones, W. Jones; II. Milligan, D. Jones, H. Conway Jones, G. Eard- lcy, and Simpkirs- lhere was a good atten,dance--more than I have seen patronising tflie first te-am in some League matches- After sonic mid-field play, during which it was clear that some of the pjayens on both sides were either novices or quite out d practice, miskieks arfdl reckless at- tempts at heading being frequent, Jones put in a couple of fine runs fClr Llandudno, frm-n one cd which Claude Davies scored, the Con- way backs being at fault- The visitors got going from tie restart, but the wing hzal VV- Edwards and J. H. Davies, kept their for- wards well i.ll hand, and the goalkeeper was not greatly troubled- Simipk'in.s, the visitors' outside right, was hereabouts the best f- rward on the fieild, and put in srane beautiful cen- trce, which, lx>wever, were of no avail- End to end play I.c11owed, and the visitors' custod- ian was often tested with tame e>hots, which he had no difficulty in clearing, until Claude Davies, gaining pcfeesaion, sent in a beauti- fud centre, whioh the home inside right caught, giving Jones no chance of cavipg- Simpkins placed a corner kick perfectly, and Milligan headed through for Conway. Jones, wno was a rr"Cclt favourite with the crowd, amid cheers and s-.wuts of "Play up Meredith," put in eonio hot sholo, which showed the visiting custodian at his best- The end arrived with Llandudno pressing, and all the defensive work cl Conway fell upon Ellis, t,IIO captain, and J. Jccies, tihe diminutive goalkeeper, the fiti-Lil eoorvt) being: Llandudno 5, Conway 2.
BEAUMARIS v. BANGOR UNIVERSITY. THE STUEKELNTS IN FORM. A game full of "go" was played between these teams on the Green, Beaumaris, on Saturday, before a fair attendance. The Vareity placed a strong tea-m on the field, while the "Beaus" tried sevieral now players. Tihe teadns were as follows:— 'Varsity: Meikle; H. M. Robinson and D. S. Owen; W. Griffiths, D. G. Rowlands and W. J. Jones; E. LI. Jonea, Sonedley, Thotnias., Mathews, and D. E. Davies. Beaumaris: O. R. Jones; W. R. Jones and Griffith Daviee; Sinclair, L. Jones, and H. Row- lands; S. Poole, Morgan-Jonee, W. 0. Hum- phreys, Gre.i.g, and Dick Humphreys. Tho 'VarBity winning the spin of the coin played with the sun at their back-?, and alter a short attack by the homesters "Tosvzer, foi- lowing a. smart movement on the part of li,3 College forwardi-, teat "O.R, with a euiig'iig shot, and repeated the performcnce a, low minutes later. The visiting left were soon again in evidence, but Davies stopped tho rush, and the hodneol,.ers atRUtmed the aggrefrive, bu.t although they made the pace for a time, they were unable to get through, and the 'Vanry boys broke away with a emart run, but Matiie<vs, when in a fine position, bit the dust, and a penalty was awarded the visitors. "D. S." took "the kiok, and desipitc the; custodia.n'" fine attempt to eave he scored the third. The hectne defence were kept fully occupied, and their sup- porter experienced an a-nxioue time, but the tension was relieved by Smedley getting offside. Though greatly handicop-pod by the bright sun e-hitung in his eyes, Jones, the home custodian, put in come excellent work, but it was a hope- less task. DIGNITY AND IMPUDENCE. Much amusement was caused by the anit-ico of the juvenile supporters of the home team, who, after parading the field to the accompaniment of a fctirring wa.r song, worked their way into the very midst of the crowd of 'Va.reity sup- porters. It almost looked like dignity a.nd impudence; but their presence certainly ao,oo as a cooler to the ardour cf the viaitom. After the 'Varsity had moncpolieed play for qui.e a lengthy period, Dick Humphreys got away, and beat Metkle. The visitors soon retaliated, how- ever, and "Tc-wzer" scored from close rarre. Mter a etmart save by "0. R. Edyer Jones returned the leather nicely, and "Tcavzer" added yet another, Smedley following with the sixth. A few minutes later Simedley repeated with a lightening shot which Joneg attempted to strike out, bu,t the ball, however, screwed into the net. The "Bea.us" assumed the a-ggressive, but their piny lacked the coheeion ocs has be- come aooustomed to expect of the team, and Griffiths, of the 'Varsity, got the le-athor back into the homo-, iters' quarter. A ruth by Mor- gan-Jones and Humiphreyg had no other re- sult \hou damaging a f.pectatoi's chapeau. An- other pen-ally enabled "D. S." to pop in yet one more. After afutiJe a.ttfl: ;pt by the hÜlmefrc-rs the 'Va.re.ity ldt wing clb.,&itied potseseion, and Edgar Jones scored a beauty. Throughout the closing' ttegeg oi p'ay t.he "Beans' backs had a very b-uty time, bui mumaged to prevent the voters fuiiher increasing their lead. At laet Alo-rgian-Joncs get through with a smart juji, but jui-t )iii.t»Lcl the billot. At the opposite end Pir.g h-ad liard luck with a thot that struck the bar and bounced over. Morgan-Jones forced a, corner direjtly after, but without jrovalt, and D. S. Owen tce'.cd the home cut-fiuoMn with a stinging shot, uusuccecrtfully however. In tho last few m W. O. Humip.hrey.s>, after gocd footwork, got within ra.ge an-J scored the second for Beaumaris. Though the sun wa6 a very dkad'va-ntagcous factor to the home team, it muse be acknowledged that the 'Varsity were much the cleverer eleven. Final result: 'Vatbily, 9; Beaumaris, 2.
COMPETITION AT PWLLHELI. PORTMAJDOC GAIN THE MEDALS. On Boxin,g Day there was a competition for moo.als at the Pwllheli Recreation Ground, and in the final round Pwllheli a.nd Pcrt:i:adoc tied. The two chtibs met again lust Saturday in more favourable weather than prevailed on Boxing Day. Mr K LJoyd WillntinuD, Bangor, again arted as reiferee. The home team lest the toes, and had to p'ay with the oan in tiheir faces. Grim earne&u:«*» ciiar'acte.rieed the game throughout, and the visitors were on their mettle im.taiitly. The home forwards kept attacking their goal several times, and but for eria;c play, .cores would have been recorded. The Mad^c goalkeeper made some fine saves. Fortunately, the Madoc backs suooeeded in flanking their cpi;x>nent<s, and a good run up the field followed, culminating in a corner. But do-wii to the tower end of the field dGnhed the Hch-itee with the ball, but the cupiodiiaJi gaved. The attacks were hurled bk rpicndid'ly. llcsiiilities we.re exceedingly lively 1 in tho Madioc quarters, and the fpectatorg held their breuith expecting the score to open every ee-cond. But the vit-iuni:. succeedcd in making a. E'tnibborn and fiuoces-xul defence, and at latlt got into tho. open, and then the Madoc forwards made some beautiful payees. A fine shot for goal hob also fino} t"cpi)ed. Rigih-t away the home forward^ daihed, well suipn>oiried- by the halves, and a brilliant onslaught W £ B made oil the Madoc stronghold; but all was useless. A STIRRING GAME. for several minutes the ftpeetators were fully expecting a gcal, if not half-a-dozen goals. Tho m a,,io,*tes then began hostilities at the other end. The citadel was bombarded, but the shots were erratic. Yet, the attack and defence were a treat to see. The Heli-ites got out of danger, and soon got to grips with the Madoc dct'enr- ders. Yet, owing to t.he magnificent goal keep- ing of Sam, no progrere could be reeoirded. Both opponents and supporters of the visiting ten-m were srportsmanlike enough to give a loud oheer for the way little Sam successfully de- fended his carjtle. Most unexpectedly, the Ma.- doc forwards got pcu;e £ tyion cf the leather, dorlhcd up the field, and opened the wore. This was a surprise, but more surprises were in etotre. A few minutes later another point was gained. During a hot oeufflo in the penalty area, a foul was given against the Madoc team. Little Sam saved, and was a.g.ain loudly cheered. The Madoeilee played in combination, broke through the diefence, and added another point. Port- madoe led a.t the interval by three goals to nil. The cpcning play of the second half showed the home team doing everything but scoring. They lacked judgment and accuracy; but at last by pegging at it they got a, goal, and the f.pec- l.ators gave the n a hearty chcer. From now to the end the game wa-s rcw-tly in fa.vou.r off the heano team, though the visitort. bc,vt them in the art of piping. Towards the end there wag a hercie attempt mndc by the lieti-iter, to equal- ise mutteis, if not to gain the victory, but all their attempts were foded by the visitors, and the game ended in favour of Port madoc by three goals to one. 1

They are perfectly safe, never di:aotic in action, a.nd can always be depended on to rcr-tore robust health even in seemingly hopelets eaivee. Miss Fanny Hodges-, 32, Svanley-sLreet, South West-sitrect, Bedrnin- S'ter, Bristol, eays:—"I work in a large drapery establishment. The confinement indoors to- gether with the ha'urt> worked, at last had their effect on my health. I lofct my appetite com- ""pjctely, and when I did take food, it made .me feel sick and uncomfortable. My lips and gums became quite pale. I was very anaemic, and had attacks of biliouness. The indigestion became more and more troublesome, and the little food I could take gave me severe pain in tho ehest and between the. shoulders, and I graduaily drifted, as so-callcd tonics and several doct,ore' medicines utterly failed.

i. COURSING. ABERGELE OPEN MEETING. JAN. 16. During tho greater part of Thursday's couxoijik at Abergele ram descended in torrents, driven by a gale of wind, and old attendants at th« meeting never remember a worse day for the sport.

MR LLOYD GEORGE BACK IN IIARNESS. PLEASANT MOTOR TOUR THROUGH FRANCE. Mr Lloyd George, President of the Board 01 Trade, returned to London, yesterday week from the South o" France, where he has spent a portion of the Parliamentary reeess> having left home on December 19th about a fortnight after the lamei.tabie death of his eldest da ugh tcir- The riht hon. gei:tienian, who was lookiiiff exceeditigly well, and had evidently uciKea very much from his holiday, was met f.t Char- ing Cross Station' by Mrs Lloyd George and Master Gwilym Lloyd George, ag well as Air W. II. Clarke and Mr John. Rowland, his pri- vate secretaries. On alighting from the Dover boat train, Mt Lloyd George affectionately embraced his wi'« and son. a-xd then hurried off to the Board of Trade, as there wcire several urgent matters requiring his immediate attention. He was in consultation, with Mr II. E. Keurley. M.P., the Paiiiia.menta.ry Secretary of the department, and the per:na.n€int officials for some time. At the cornelmion d his conference. Mr Lloyd George was interviewed. In response to a question, tho President stated that his party had magniifioerit woather nearly all the time- "There were only three or four days of rain," he oontinued- "Thc6e, wero the first few days of my arrival. From t.hat timo I had siiii pl v cloud lei-s skies- I. spent m<JØt of the time at Nice and around Nice. I was there w'ith Mr Ke\irley, Mr R. K- Caur-ton, and Sir James Woodhouse, while Mr Herliert Lewis a'c-i ) came across.

Did you see much of France?—I motored ptfacticaily all the way from iondori to Niea with Mr Ksarley in his powetful 60-horse-power Napier car- Mr Kearly had his two eons with i.diti, and I had my two boys with me. Mn Lloyd George was not able to be with us, but Mrs Kearley joined us at Nice- We had magnificent weather all the way through F.-aiion and I found the trip decidedly interesting. It is a si,n,guiaj-ly beautiful route, especially ae you approach the South from Dijon- When did your party return ?—My boye te- turned before I d;o'—the od-est one to go to Caniifciridgei and the other to the City of LOoo- don Schocil. I have been travelling back since- Tuesday after-noon, and I have only just got here- It was a quiet journey; but one thins struck me, and that was ho-w much better thi permanent way is here than in France.
