WHEN LIFE WAS SIMPLER LIFE WAS LONGER.. When the organs begin to weaken, whether early or late in life, the hard- working kidneys usually tire out first, and should have first consideration. Failing eyesight, stiff achy joints, rheumatic pains, backache and distres- sing urination are often due only to weak kidneys. At the first sign of'weakness give the kidneys prompt attention. Drink water freely to flush the kidneys, and use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills to strengthen them. Go back to the Simple Life, to the sensible habits of your boyhood days. Eat less mat, avoid over-work, excesses and worry,and take more outdoor exercise, rest and sleep. Everybody dreads kidney trouble, but this sensible treatment will keep the kidneys in condition, lengthen life, make it easier, and perhaps avert altogether the more serious kidney diseases. Barmouth people have recommended Doan's Backache Kidney Pills to their friends and neighbours for over 15 years. The good they do and the continual use of home tesimonials inspres aa ever increasing confidence in THIS SPECIAL KIDNEY MEDICINE.

OUR WOUNDED ALLIES, Among the organisations for helping suf ferers in the war the Wounded Allies Relief Committee is doing a notable work. The scope of its operations in indicated by its title, and it works in the closest co-operation with the British and Allied Governments. It has placed thousands of wounded Belgians in hospitals and homes, and it extends support to a num- ber of institutions in France. A motor-ambu- lance unit is now on service with the Belgian Army, and a special appeal is made for help- ing forward the work in hospitals immedi- ately behind the firing line, where proper emergency treatment is invaluable in saving many lives. Other features of the work are the provision of training and employment homes for the disabled, the supply of artificial limbs, and the care of wounded on leaving hospital. There is no other representative organisation which assists the sick, wounded, and crippled soldiers of all the Allies.

Ladies and Gentlemen,— I beg to remind you of the impor- tance of recording your vote next Satur- day, and respectfully appeal to you for your kind support. I feel that my record as one of your representatives in the past will stand scrutinising, being. fully convinced that I have striven to give you my best, serving you honestly and faithfully, having nothing except the welfare of lithe. town and district at heart, promoting all improvements pos- sible, without increasing the rates which I consider heavy enough. With the very limited means at the disposal of the Council, I feel that much has been achieved of late, thoughjl am quite alive to the fact that much remains tobe done. This last year, in particular, has been a very trying one, for both Council and ratepayers generally, but with your help we have succeeded to keep within bounds, and I take this opportunity of thanking you most sin- cerely for your kind co-operation, for without such we could not succeed. In re-electing me as one of your representatives you will be showing your appreciation of the little that I have been doing in the past, and stimulate me to try and do all I can again in the future to further our common interests for the benefit of the town and district. Hoping and trusting that if you deem me worthy of your support, you will favour me with your gvote next Saturday. Yours faithfully, RHYS JONES.

Llewelyn Owen, Llys Llewelyn, has, with the approval of the Board of Education, been appointed clerk to the Governors of the Ellen Humphreys' Educational Foundation, Dyffryn. Park Road Chapel Literary Society.— The last meeting of the above society for the session was held last Tuesday evening, and the number attended was a pleasing indication of the increased activity of the society. The programme was of a varied cbarcter, and with Mr Richard Price, Brynithel, in the charir, the members expected an excellent evening. Mr Stanley Jones started the evening's programme with a selection on the harp. Then Mr Elias Williams gave a recitation in a fashion worthy of himself. The next item on the programme was the adjudication of the best essay, the subject being, "How to keep a house with a family of four children on a pound per week. In giving the adjudication, Mr J. G. Roberts remarked that he regretted to say that none of the compeLitors were worthy of the prize. Misses Madge Price and Ruth Evans then sang a duett, which was loudly applauded. The winner in the following competition being Miss Richards, Greenhill. Then the members partook of a splendid repast, which bad been so well prepared by Misses Ruth Evans, Madge Price, Florence Edwards and Martha Jason. Mr Stanley Jones was again called upon to open the second part of [he prog- ramme, with a selection on the harp. Tieen interest was manifested in the two competitions that followed. The first being for the best recitation. The competitors were allowed to choose their own piece. No less than six competitors entered the arena, and the prize was awarded to Mr D. R. Williams, who also won the prize for the best rendering of anv Welsh Air." The prize for the best verses was won by Miss Williams, Artro House; the prize being an oak chair (given by the president). The successful bard was afterwards chaired according to the usual bardic- custom, in the presence of numerous bards, etc. In conclusion, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded to the president and officers of the society, add all those who bad so helped in making the session throughout a successful one. A most enjoyable evening was brought to a close by the singing of the Welsh National Anthem.
