Barmouth Urban District Council Election, Next Saturday, April 24th. VOTE FOR DAVIES ■r IM c:po x on the Ballot Paper. J. LLEW. DAVIES. St Ann's, Barmouth i
RESULTS TELL. Results tell the tale. AU doubt is removed. The testimony of a neighbour can be easily investigated, What better proof can be had ? Mrs A. Hiam, of 11 Cliftandale," Marine Road, near the Promenade, Bar- mouth, says Pains have troubled me across the back occasionally during the last twelve twelve months. I had also headaches with tired, languid feelings about me. "I was greatly relieved by taking Doan's backache kidney pills. I proved them to be very effective in my own case of kidney trouble, and I have the greatest pleasure in recommending them to others, (Signed) A. Hiam." The kidneys lie beneath the small of the back. Their great work is to filter poisonous waste and surplus water out of the blood. But when they are weak they leave some of this poisonous waste in the system, and you begin to feel dull, heavy and irritable you may get backache, gravel, urinary disorders, dropsical swellings, rheumatism or sciatica. Doan's backache kidney pills help the kidneys to throw off the offend- ing poisons and therefore reach the cause of the above symptoms. Price 2/9 a box, 6 boxes 13/9, of all dealers, or from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Donjt ask for backache or kidney pills,—ask distinctly for Doan's backache kidney pills, the same as Mrs Hiam had. —— — -——————

Ladies and Gentlemen,— Having been canvassing for your sup- port so very recently, I do not wish to take up your time unnecessarily in again calling upon you before next Saturday's Election, but I desire to make this most respectful appeal for your kind support. I claim, ladies and gentlemen,that my experience is such as qualifies me to act as one of your representatives,especially so, in the matter of effecting improve- ments in the most economical manner, and in the keeping of the town generally in a clean and tidy condition, so that a favourable impression may be created upon visitors. I still adhere to the view that tbeRate- payers should be oftener consulted by the Council, especially so, when there is any important scheme, or any debatable point of importance under consideration, as an expression of opinion by the Rate- payers could not but be of much assist- ance. My aim will always be to secure progress with economy, and I sincerely trust that you will do me the honour of placing a X opposite No 2 on the ballot paper. Thanking yon ip anticipation, I remain, Yours very truly, EVAN GRIFFITH. Cambrian House, ¡J (U'woutb, ^'2
