Prices of Birch- Rods Going Up.- There lives in a village not far from Barmoutb a funny old man who earns his living by going about to sell brooms and birch-rods. One day be called at a oottage and asked "Do you want a broom, to-day?" "No" answered the wife. Do you want a birch-rod?" No answered one of the boys. "Yes" said the mother, "I had better have one in case war may break out among the cbildren," giaing him a penny—the usual price.

Street Lecture to Barmouth Boys on Economy.—The other day a Barmouth minister might have been beard talking to a group of boys in the street on economy, onp of whom bad a cigarette in bis mouth. The minister seriously advised them to give the money they wasted on cigarettes for buying bread for the children which were starving in Belgium and Serbia. An appeal from the pulpits in the town may answer a good purpose. If we are correctly informed, about a thousand pounds a year is wasted in Barmouth and neighbourhood on tobacco and cigar- ettes.

With a view of endorsing a plea made by the County Couucil for economy, the Council decided to inform that body that they would accept £250 for maih- taining the main road during the coming ¡ year or alternatively undertake the work and only charge the County Council the exact sum expended. The Council's workmen, with the exception of Griffith Edwards, tendered their resignations; but offered to work at 23/- a week. This offer was refused, and the Coun- cil in order to cut down expenditure decided to engage only two new men instead of the four resigning. Applications were read, and in the end Messrs William Pugh, Roseneatb and Thomas Morris, Fronfelen Terrace, were appointed.

Barrow Williams, of LIandudno, who is a brother of Mrs Martin Williams, 4, Porkington Terrace, met with an accident in Cardiff on Saturday night, Feb. 19th, which narrowly missed being fatal. He was run over by a motor vehicle, and was bruised and badly shaken. He bad travelled down from Llandudno the same day for the purpose of preaching on Sunday at one of the Forward Movement halls in the city. He was leaving the station and inquired of a tram conductor for a car to take him to his destination, and was told that the car be required was just about to start, While crossing the road to reach this car be was knocked down by a motor-car, whioh seemed to go over him, but, happily, he escaped serious injury. On the following day be preached twice in Cardiff, and on his way home he lectured on Monday night at Rossett, Denbighshire. On Tuesday he was suffering somewhat from the effects of the shock. Mr Williams has been a constant traveller on lecturing and preaching engagements for forty years, and this is his first accident. Park Road Annual Concert.-—Great success crowned the eflerts of the pro- moters of the grand concert held at the Pavilion on the eve of St. David's in aid of the Park Road Chapel Building Fnnd The Committee were fortunate in being able to secure the services of such eminent artistes. The Concert was presided over by Mr J. Pryce Jones, J.P. who ably conducted the meeting, and delivered an appropriate speech during the evening. A most interesting programme had been drawn out, and the various items were highly appreciated. Mrs Wade-Roberts, R.A.M., performed the duties of accompanist in excellent manner—and the pianoforte duett in which Miss Gwenfron Roberts also took part gave ample proof of their abilities at the piano and highly pleased the audience. Miss Sallie Roberts with her sweet- toned voice and ringing top notes sang in artistic style, and her splended rendering of the various pieces was thoroughly enjoyed by all, Miss Davies is a popular contralto, and is a great favourite in the neighbour- hood. On this occasion, as usual,she was up to all expectations. The magnificent compass of her rich voice enabled her to do full justice with all the items, much to the delight of the audience. Mr E. W. Bellis possesses a sweet and pure tenor voice, and his natural and effective rendering of popular first class songs were highly appreciated by all. Mr George Jackson always takes well. His rich voice and musical style gave him the qualities of a successful concert singer, and make him master of the art. The singing was of a first-class quality, and the numerous items were loudly applauded and encored., They all seemed to sing because they could not help it. The duties of secretary were ably performed by Mr D. R. Williams, Glanywcrn, whilst Mr Richard Price, Brynithel, in the capacity of treasurer, proved an efficient official. They reaped the success they deserved, and are to be congratulated upon their enterprise.

i ANSWER IT HONESTLY! I Are not the opinions of Barmouth residents better than those of strangers? The above is a vital question. It directly concerns Barmouth people. It can't be evaded or ignored. I The Barmouth woman who speaks here speaks for the good of the district. Read right through for yourself and acknowledge the truth of these facts. On February 5th, 1914, Mrs S. Jones, Aelfor Cottage, near the new Post Office, Barmouth, said I have been troubled with rheumatic pains in my back, which, I have no doubt, were caused by the kidneys not acting properly. A friend of mine advised me to try Doan's backache kidney pills, and I am pleased to say they have done ma a great deal of good. I think Doan's pills fine, and have recommended them to my friends. (Signed) S. Jones." On February 7tb, 1916twa years later-Mrs Jones said I have bad so much benefit from Doan's pills that I use no others, and I still tell my friends to use them for kidney troubles." Doan's backache kidney are NOT for constipation, liver troubles or stomach disorder. They are solely for disorders of the kidneys and bladder—such as dropsy, gravel, sediment, urinary troubles, backache, lumbago and rheumatism. They relieve the kidneys and bladder like laxatives relieve the bowels. Price 2/9 a box, of all dealers, f or from Foster McClellan, Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, I W. Don't ask for backache or kidney pills,tsk distinctly for Doan's backache kidney pills, the same as Mrs Jones had.
CONSIDERING THE WORKERS. There are few factories in f !;i« J country which can compare with that in which the Raleigh, the all-steel bicycle, is built, in the consideration shown for the firm's employees. The latest addition is in the form of luncheon rooms for the staff which show a consideration worthy of general emulation. In the luncheon room itself meals are served at separate tables, so that the members of the staff can form their own little parties each day. On one side of the luncheon room is a large room for the ladies of the staff, where, in comfortable basket and I lounge chairs, the feminine members can enjoy a mid-day rest, the room being well supplied with the principal ladies' journals. On the opposite side is a smoking and reading room for the sterner sex, where the daily and weekly papers can be read with the after- lunch pipe or cigarette. As many of the members of the Raleigh staff cycle con- siderable dicstauces to and from their work, consideration for the mid day hour-and-a-half is a great boon, and one which tends to those better relations between employer and employed which every good employer desires to cultivate and every worker appreciates.
A MINIATURE RAILWAY FOR FAIROURNE. Visitors to Fairbourne, opposite to Barmoutb, will no doubt remember the tramway which runs from the landing place of the Barmouth Ferry to the Station of Fairbourne, a distance of nearly two miles. Despite the fact that the service was rather irregular it was well patronised and was a useful means of conveyance. This year, however, a big alteration is to be made. The enterprising estate holders at Fairbourne have leased the tramway to the Narrow Gauge Railways Ltd., who are now busily engaged in re- laying the line with their standard gauge of 15 inch. When completed the line will be equipped with a miniature locomotive and coaches specially constructed by Messrs. Bassett-Lowice, Ltd., Model Engineers London and Northampton., These engines are Q' scale model re- presentation of a modern type Express Locomotive and are well-known to visitors to Rhyl and many exhibitions on the continent, where Messrs Bassett- Lowke Ltd., have supplied similar out- fits. The engine is about 15 feet overall aud 3ft. 6ins, high, burn smoke-less fuel and has a carrying capacity of about 60 passengers. The cars will be built teak and will each seat eight peopie. We feel sure that the railway will prove an additional attraction to Fair- bourne and also be a very useful means of conveying passengers to the Bathing Beach, Ferry, Golf Links, etc. A miniature station is to be built near the Cambrian Railway Station at Fairbourne and a regular service of trains will be maintained. The illus- tration reproduced shows an outline of the engine.
