BARMOUTH READERS MAKE A NOTE. It is a good plan to make a note of anything worth remembering. A mes- sage a week has appeared in the Bar- mouth paper for years past. You have probably read hundreds If you have not yet profited by them, make a careful note of the following. Its very earnestness must appeal to you. On January 3rd. 1909, Mrs E. Morris, of Riviere, Abermaw Terrace, opposite the Harbour, Barmouth, said .—" I have been suffering, on and off, with pains in my back for about four years;! have hardly known how to drag myself about. Many a time I have had to sit down in ,the middle of my work to take a rest. It was torture getting up straight after stooping a bit. My feet and ankles swelled, and there was a puffiness under the eyes. I suffered dreadfully with tieadaches, too, and felt tired and drowsy. The kidney excretions were disordered and caused distress when obtaining relief. 's I began to take Doan's backache kidney pills, and before I had got to the end of the box I felt ever so much better. As I went on with the medi <jine my back grew easier, and I could get about my work freely and in com. fort. I now feel brighter and better; a different person in fact. I shall always recommend Doan's pills.. (Signed) "E Morris." OVER SIX YEARS LATER, Mrs Morris said: Doati's pills are splendid, for they cured me and I have kept free from the trouble these six years since." Often those in the greatest danger from kindey complaint do not know their kidneyis are-diseased, and so the trouble is neglected until it reaches a serious stage. Cure your kidneys WHILE YOU CAN, by commencing with Doan's backache kidney pills at once if you have any such clear signs of kidney ,disorder as gravel, sediment, pains in the loins and sides, urinary trouble, rheumatism and dizziness. Price 2/9 a box, of all dealers or from Foster McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Don't ask for backache or kidney pills,-ask distinctly for Doan's backache kidney pills, the same as Mrs Morris had.

The Hon. Sir Harry S. Samuel, M.P., was in the chair. Amongst those present were Lord Dartmouth, Sir Edward Carson, Mr Walter: Long, Sir Aukland, Geddes, R C.B M., Mr Neville Chamber- lain, Capt. The Hon. W, Ormsby-Gore, The Right Hon. Lord Robert Cecil,M.P., and many others. Delegates from all parts of the country attended.. SCANDALOUS PROFITEERING.- At the Merioneth County Council held at Dolgelley last Thursday, the Finance Committee recommended that the Government should be called upon to defray the cost of burying bodies cast I up by the sea, and that application should be made for a refund of the cost of burying bodies recently thrown up on coast of the county.—Mr Watkin Davies, Dyffryn, said if be had a chance of scruitinishing the bills for the work in connection with the funerals he would not have passed them. He con- sidered the amounts charged unreason able high, and it was scandalous that people should take advantage of such circumstances. Alderman T. Martin Williams, J.P., said a good deal of valu- ably wreckage is also thrown up on the Coast, but the Government saddles the county with the cost of burying men who probably died for the country. He moved that the Government should be requested to allow the county to sell any wreckage for the benefit of the ccunty rates.-Aidet,vaaya Wiiiiams* reso- lution was added to the Committee's recommendation as an alternative.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible fat th, opinions of our correspondents. Mr Editor,— I, for one, welcome very heartily indeed, the suggestion of forming some organization that could he utilized to present when needed consensus of opinion on matters of social, economi- cal, and political interest, in the town of Barmoutb. Undoubtedly there is a need of some organization to safeguard the interest of the community in general. There are sections of the community already well organized for the purpose of safeguarding their particular inter-eat. The farmers, the grocers, the dairy men, the butchers. Personally, I be- lieve that they are justified in forming such union, but my contention is this, that the other portion of the community would be equally justified in forming an organization to safeguard their interests as well. But so far, I know not of any such organization. There are indica- I tions and several proved instances, that we are suffering because of this lack of unity- of organization. Private and individual opinion is of no value, neither is there much power therein, but collective opinion MAY con- vince reasonable men. We have no opportunity collectively to air our grievances etc. The admitted fact is this, in principle we are suffering from the menace of Prussianism To a particular section of the community, might is right, and they practice upon the community. But, believe me, the hand that wields the ironrodofPtuaeianism will be paralysed. It will be a creeping paralysis, not one sudden blow. We have bad more than enough of Prussianism on the continent. We don't want it here, we will not have I, it here. The sufferings and sacrifices of our gallant boys, brought about by the Kaiser's Prussianism is cutting I many of us to the quick, but to see 1 heir wives and children, their parents 'I (some aged and infirm) suffering makes my heart to bleed. I say again someth- ing ought to be done to stop this menace in our midst. I venture to support the suggestion thrown in your valuable paper, of last week, to form a labour party, or a Brotherhood, to discuss and to re-awake interest in matters of social, economi- cal, and political. We must not look at the formation of such party as a call to battle. What is my colour ? I am a member of the Labour party. If any other organization is formed that has the same interest at heart, I will fall in and do my utmost to further their interests. My motto in life, not live and let live, but "live and help others to live." May I invite, Mr Editor, a friendly discussion on this subject. B i P. I To the Editor. I WOMEN'S INSTITUTE. Sir,—In your last issue you inserted a letter bearing the non-deplume 11 Fairplay." That letter plainly sug. gests that those connected with the Institute are paid out of public funds. For the benefit of Fairplay and for the information of the general public, will you permit me to state that there is absolutely no foundation for the sug- gestion, as no payment is made for any services rendered. When a local effort is being made in a direction commended by one of oar principal State Departments it is, I think, to be regretted that facility should be given by the Local Press to Fairplay to poison the minds of the residents as to true facts connected with the movement, and it leads one to so-,17 wh,-tlle-r j" is pnssible tba-t amidst -as we have in -1-Fairplay a member of the brotherhood of Boloism prepared to do injury to a movement which else- where has done much to assist the Allies in their fight for Freedom. In conclusion, all that is asked of Fairplay is, to extend fairplay to the promoters of the Institute and to reserve judgement until be has facts as a basis for critism. Yours faithfully, D. LLEWELYN OWEN, Hon. Secretary. [Our columns have always been, and will continue to be EO, open for fair criticism on any movement,wbetber it be a State Department or anything else, but we hope that contributors will not indulge in personalities. The press is the only means of enlightening the public on different matters.—ED.]
