THE LEISURE HOUR Can the mtea of Art, iik& grasp of Power, Snatch the pick rehos of a. well-spent hour These, when tho trembling spirit wings her flight, Pour round her path a stream of living light. -n_- —Rogers.
Be who owes nothing fears nothing. Gold is good to Mta, but DOt to worship. Nothing succeeds like looking suooessful. Half-knowledge is worse than ignorance. Men of character respect women of character. The real conquerors of the world are the thinkers. A worthy life is impossible without a worfhy motive! Experience is a good school, but there are few holidays. No man can make a mistake without learning something. Patience is the hope of advancement in all lines of life. There are no sufferings which sympathy may not ma.ke lighter. In the Ions' run we pay most for what we try to get for nothing. The roadway of iiio needa more attention than the door of de.lth. No one can have enjoyment to-day if he ij v.rrvlng aoout to-morrow. Hypocrisy is the gold of virtue used to gild vioe. The man who does nothing does much harm. No man ie refined until he is purged of selfishness. The older we grow the more tender should be our hearts. Action, to have its right value, must be action :with a purpose. There are a hundred "successful" men for one that is contented. A light heart and a cheerful faoe are the heri- tage of those who possess contented minds. So long as the multitude are made use of, and not loved and helped, so long shall the world be full of misery and crime. Let 1& man get the idea that he is being wronged, or that everything is against him, and you cut his earning capacity in two. You will be amazed to soc how quickly friends 'will flock about you just as soon as you begin to -cultivate attractable and lovable qualities. He who tells a lie is not sensible how great a task he undertakes, for he must be forced to in- dent twenty more to maintain one.—POPE. As the soil, however rich it may be, cannot be productive without culture, so the mind without cultivation can never produce good fruit.—SENECA. After our subtlest analysis of the mental pro- cess. we must still say that our highest thoughts and our best deeds are all given to us.—GEOBUE ELIOT. If we would only go to v.oik making happiness a habit, what a bright place this world would be! And it is a possibility for each one of Uo— not a dream! A great people and petty thoughts or revenge- ful feelings go ill together. The strong do not ■wail; the brave make no outcry. In proportion to one's power should be his forbearance and self-control. If we do nothing but what is honest, let all the world know it; but if otherwise, what does •it signify to have nobody else know it, so long as I know it myself? Miserable ie he that slights tiuvt witness.-8EECA. Men only associate in parties by sacrificing their opinions, or by having none worth sacri- ficing; and the effect of party government is always to develop hostilities and hypocrisies and to extinguish ideas.—BUSKIN. The first step on the ladder that leads to suc- cess is tho firm determination to succeed; the I next is tho possession of that moral and physical courage which will enable one to mount up, Tung after rung, until the top is reached, LOKD WOLSELEY- rA lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies lie which is all a lie may be met and fought with outrisrht, But a lie which is part of a truth is a harder matter to fight! —TENNYSON. The best things are nearest—breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things of life. Self-maatery means holding one's self and one's powers steady to their true use; not lack of use, deficiency; nor over-use, prodigality; nor UÚ6use, the inappropriate, the improper j nor abuse, the injurious; but Nature's fujI, true use not repression but control, full expression through control. There is the honour of pure living and pure thinking. Theso bring with them a badge which far outshines any to bo had of mundane sources. For there Is nothing more to be desired than a good face—not a handsome one but a good one -wherein may be seen the reflection of high motives and right ideals. The man who owns enough of this world's goods to keep him from dirt. (kbt. and hunger, has a thousand chances of m'oiding evil against the one of the man whom the demon of dis- couragement drags through depths from which it is almost impossible t.o o*-?ape without severe demoralisation of body, mind, and spirit. If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble to dust; if we work upon immortal souls, if we imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and love of fellow-men, we engrave 011 these tablets something which will brighten all eternity. BE GY.N1;¡XI!. There is nothing which will add so much to one's power as the consciousness of being abso- lutely sincere, genuine. If your life is a per- petual lie, if you are conscious you are not what you pretend to be, you cannot be strong. There is a restraint, a perpetual fighting against the truth going on within you. a struggle which saps your energy and warps your conduct, Sham and jjhoddy are- powerless; only the genuine and the "true are worth while. ENLARGEMENT. If there be pleasure in the exercise of any I faculty or in the performance of any function, then there will be more happiness, the more the faculties are increased and enlarged. Tiien, the more faculties one possesses in numlwr and the loftipr they are in degree and the wider in range, the more the capacity for happiness. 11, -then, you will make a man capahle or all n happiness that is possible to a man, y°u mus •develop him, you must broaden liim, lift him, until you rrui.ke of him all that is possible to press into the definition of a. man. CHASING RAINBOWS. How many people go through life deluded •with the conviction that if they could only get a little more money, get into a little more com- fortable position, own a little better home, or if ■they could only get over the particular trouble that is annoying them at the time, they would be happy! I know a man, writes O. S. M.. who had a very hard boyhood, sufferr-d great poverty, who is now fifty years old, and he has .always honestly believed that, if he could only d the particular thing he was after, or even get over the particular difficulty iinnov- i r him at the moment, he would be perfectly happy, but he is the same anxious, rcetless, ..expectant spirit to-day as when a youth. He has been quite successful, and has some rrrv remarkable things, but he is invcM'i'ibly in ho wateT. There is always sonnet riv rr that DettW him, or destroys his happini's. and, although he is a well-meaning man, he has made 11j" family. his employees, and everybody about him verv unhapny, because he ia always fretting and worrying, always borrowing trouble. USELESS COMFORTERS. For my part, says a writer in the World otu2 XIi* I think the poople who look upon themselves as heaven-sent comforters, whose mission in life is strongly to advise other people 4* not to worry," would do much better to leave their alPiet^d foliow-erentures to fight against their own emotions and feelings, and help them to remove the cause of the worry. Then, when that is gone, the worry will go too. I' NEW TRUTHS. "Schools have made men readers; reading I made men thinkers; thinking has made men seekers after truth. Never before in the history of mankind on this planet was the crust of ous- ■tom and tradition so easily punctured by an idea as now." 16 Ci:i^rn m<4de by a thoughtful article upon human progress. Never fvOv was man eo free to seek the right, and :t un- hampered by «ny despot ism. Never ). were people so ready to accept new truths 1 grasp new opportunities., w.l of this oentvrv to all 6b to live up to the possibilities of tae emitury. VERNAL ODE. Tin's in the train of Spring, arrive S'.vett fiowers-what living eye hath viewed Their myriads P—cndl66.sly renewed, Wherever strikes the sun s glad ray; Whcr'er the subtle waters stray: Wherever sportive breezes bend Their course, or genial showers descend Mortals., rejoice! the very Angels quit Their mansions, unsusceptible ol change.

FOOTHALL. CHARLIE PARRY MOBBED. Angry scenes were witnessed on the Welsh- pool football ground on Friday at the com- bination fixture between Welshpool and Chirk, when the referee, Mr. Charles Parry, formerly a back for Everton and Aberyst- wyth, was mobbed, and, but for the pro- tection of the police and players, would pro- bably have been seriously, injured. Offside decisions against Welshpool and his dis- allowing two goals led to the hostile demon- strations, while his ordering off of one of the Welshpool men, who had had quite a stand-up fight with a Chirk player provoked the climax. The crowd surged around the referee, and he received numerous blows. Though the players and committee rallied round him, the deep crowd kept the police back from protecting him. Eventually the police and players escorted him to the pavilion, and on the way he wa^ pelted with clods. The police tried to clear th? mob. but they refused to move from the canal embankment adjoining the entrance, threatening to duck the referee if he ven- tured forth. Reinforcements of police even- tually guarded him through the mob, he beii)- considerablv hurt. It may be added that tli2 player ordered off the held bv the rcfel-pe Was Towyn Jones. of Aberystwyth, who was assisting Welsh- pool on this occasion. EASTER FOOTBALL. Apparently, interest in football was on the wan-e this Eastertide in Aberystwyth, judging from the meagre number of specta- tors who watched the games. On the morning of Good Friday, a match was played between Swansea Villa and Aber- ystwyth Wednesdays. The Wednesdays were the better team, but were not blessed with a score, the result being a goalless draw. ABERYSTWYTH v. HANDSWORTH. In the afternoon of the same day, the Town team played Handsworth, Birming- ham. Though having the sun in their faces, Aberystwyth were the first to score through Billy Jones, the Handsworth team equalising shortly afterwards. Unluckily for Aber- ystwyth E. Peake sprained his leg in the first forty-five and had to retire, Aberyst- wyth then having for three parts of the game to play only ten men. Were they at full strength all through, they might be expected to win. The match was a pleasant one to watch, the visitors, if anything, ex- celling the Seasiders in their combination, the latter being disorganised through Peake's injury, but they managed to keep their heads above water, the game ending in two goals divided between them. LIVERPOOL LEEK v. ABERYSTWYTH. This match was played on Saturday, Dickinson, of the U.C.W., taking E. Peake's place. Leek opened the score. Tommy Rees equalising for Aberystwyth. Evan Humph- ries was prominent in the rush which ended in Aberystwyth having a lead. There was no further scoring, the result beiiil,, Aber- ystwyth 2 goals, Handsworth, 1. BUILTH WELLS v. ABERYSTWYTH. A fairly good game was witnessed between these two teams on Easter Tuesday. At the interval the Wells were leading by three goals to two. Aberystwyth made a splendid rally towards the close, and succeeded in putting in three more goals in, thus winning by 5 goals to 3. Young Parsons who put in by 5 goals to 3. Young Parsons who put in the tnird goal for Aberystwyth, gave a good display, and will, it is anticipated, be able to render further help in succeeding seasons. t!1 WELSH AMATEUR CUP (FINAL). .E.,clusham White Stars One goal. Brymbo Victoria None. Ths final tie attracted a large crowd to Wrexham on Saturday. Both teams have had a successful season. The supporters of both sides were present. Brymbo won the toss, and had a strong wind behind them. The play was rather poor. and no goals were registered. In the second portion Esclusham •did a lot of pressing, and Pike opened tho scoring for them. This proved to be the only goal of the match, and the Stars con- soquently secured possession of the cup. I WELSH CUP FINAL. CHESTER BEATS CONNAHS QUAY. I At Wrexham on Easter Monday. A most exciting game was witnessed. Chester scor- ed stra gut from the kick-off, and Connah's Quay equalised just before the interval. The second half proved Chester the better team, and adding two goal- they won com- fortably. The victors quite" deserved their victory, though the Quay men gave them a very good same. Final Score— Goals. Chester 3 Connah s Quay 1
4 HIGHEST HUMAN DWELLING. The highest human dwelling is the Buddhist cloister Hanio in Kashmir, British India. Here, at a height of over three miles above sea level, 100 people, mostly Buddhist lamas or priests, live the year round. To the height of about four miles ventures the condor, which, of all living things, frequents the greatest altitudes.
THE KAISIB'S "DHEAM PALACE." Achilleion, in Corfu, the Kaiser's summer re- treat, is reputed to be the loveliest pleasure palace in the world. It stands a monument of glistening marble in the midst of the character- istic Corfu woods of bluo olives, fig cactuses, and cypresses. The castle grounds look out upon the Hyllaio Bay, with its wild fissured cliffs, and on the solitary, mysterious island of Ponticonici. which legends say wa.s ereated by Neptune fro", the shattered ship of Odysseus. Achilleion was called by the unfortunate Einnress Elizabeth of Austria, by whom it was built, her dream castle," partly because the Wutv of its situation was so idvl1ic as to seem something more than earthly, and partly because she abandoned her- celf there unreservedly to melancholy dreams of lost happiness. lost happiness.

TRTSANT. Mynyddbach.Spccial preaching services were held at Salem Mynyddbach Wesley Chapel on Good Friday last when the Rev. D. JoneSj Borth, delivered most elo- quent discourses to fairly large congrega- tions. In he -was supported by the Rev. W. J. Roberts, Pontrhydgroes who also delivered a most eloquent sermon to an appreciative audience. Pe.rson.il--We. heartily wish to congratu- late Mr. David John Lewis, better known in musical circles, as Brynalaw of Trisant, on his grand achievement in being the suc- cessful winner of the baritone solo at the eisteddfod held at Goginan on Good Friday last. This is the more creditable for Mr. Lewis as he came out best in a competition which was so keen, consisting as it did of well-known and frequent eisteddfodic com- petitors.

THE UGLINESS or NATUBE. According to Professor Ray Lankester, nothing baa done more to eliminate the beautiful from our earth than nature. The brilliant plumage' of the bird, the graceful forma of motion in extinct mammals, the once lovely contouM of our eroded coast lines, to all these things nature is indifferent and even hostile. Many well- informed people refer to the beauty of nature" as it were a demonstrable fact. The scientifically established truth points to the ugliness of nature. Leave nature to herself and some of the loveliest plant and animal forms would either perish or be distorted into some- thing hideous. Neither the poet nor the novelist, in these days of talk about the "superman," seems to know that in the struggle for existence the obscure and the feeble tend. very frequently, to survive. The very inferiority of an organism, under our humane system, will often give it an advantage over strong competitors.
