j BEDWELLTY DISTRICT COUNCIL. The ordinary meeting of the mem- bers of the Bedwellty Urban Council was held at New Tredegar, on Tues- day, at which there were present, Messrs Edgar Davies, J.P., chairman, Isaac Jones, vice chairman, W. O'Con- nor, W. Bufton, S. Godwin, Evan Thomas, Edgar Davies, R. J. Jones, D. Jones, Joshua Tillott, with Mr T. J. Thomas, clerk, Mr F. G. Harris, deputy clerk, Mr Dan H. Price, sur- veyor, Mr Hayes, accountant. The Surveyor reported that the hose cart and hose with other equip- ment for Phillipstown would cost f,66 101s. The matter was deferred. The Surveyor was instructed to prepare the cost of erecting pigs' cots on one of the allotments, the plot not having been cultivated, and to report upon the rental necessary to cover the outlay. It was reported there were eleven persons in one of the council's houses at Garden Village.—Mr R. J. Jones i said it was not to the credit of the Sanitary Authority to have houses in an insanitary condition. It was re- solved to serve statutory notices. Dr. Rees Roberts, the medical officer, reported that during the month 94 cases of measles and eight scarlet fever were notified. There were 88 births and 22 deaths. Two infants J schools, Argoed and Cefn Forest, had < been closed to measles epidemic. j After some discussion, the council passed the following resolution which ,f it was decided to forward to all local authorities in the county, asking them to pass a similar resolution, and to forward the same to the Prime Min- ister, Food Controller and its repre- sentative in Parliament. Having regard to the very considerable amount ( of labour expended u pon the allotment ￼ gardens which have come largely into I' existence since the outbreak of war,, ] and to the growing feeling that these allotment gardens should remain i permanent allotment gardens, this I council appeals to His Majesty's Government to enact at the earliest possible moment legislation whereby security of tenure may be obtained in respect to these allotments." ="
PONTLOTTYN WAR MEMORIAL. NEXT MONDAY'S SPORTS. If enthusiasm counts for anything, there is every indication that the movement organized to erect a fitting memorial at Pontlottyn to those brave men who have sacrificed their all in the country's service, in this great struggle for freedom and righteous- ness, will be a huge success. A more worthy movement has never been instituted, and it must commend itself to every section of the community. With a view of augmenting the fund, as will be seen by an ad vertisement in another column, a grand carnival, sports, baby show, and other compe- titions will be held on Monday, 30th inst. A most attractive programme has been arranged, and with such excellent prizes there should be a large number of competitors. The energetic committee, of which Councillor David Hopkins is chairman, and Mr Wm. J. James, hon. treasurer, has been for- tunate in securing the Mile Field for the sports, which is admirably adapted for such meetings. An excellent band has been engaged, and will provide dance music on the green. Weare pleased to hear that the prospects for a successful event are highly encoura- ging, so that visitors to the ground will be assured a pleasant afternoon. 10,

A FORMER RNYMNEYIT6 KILLED IN ACTION. The death in action is officially reported of Stretcher Bearer Sergt. H. Williams, grand-son of the late Mrs. Pearce, and nephew of Mr Wm. Pearce, formerly of Rhymney. The deceased was a typical soldier and had taken part in most of the heavy fight- ing in France during the last two years, being awarded the D.C.M. last April for his heroic action under great difficulties. In a letter to Mr W. Evans, 182, City-road, Cardiff, dated from France, July 6th, 1917, Capt. D. A. Warren, R.A.M.C., M.O. let R. Har. R., stated that Sergeant Williams was killed by a shell, which exploded very close to where he and a number of others were standing. The only merciful part of it was that his death was instantaneous. He was not more than fifteen feet from me when he was hit, and I was with him within a few seconds, but he was quite dead. Some small pieces of shrapnel having pierced his heart. During the past 12months thatl have been medical officer to this battalion, Sergt. Will- iams has always been my right hand man in the trenches, and I relied a great deal on his judgment. I was the only member of the battalion with him when he won his D.C.M. on April 11th and if ever a D.O.M. was deservedly awarded, it was in his cam. He was always quite fearless in the pursuance of his duties, always unselfish, think- ing only of the other fellows, not of himself, and he was always cheerful. He was one of the ablest and most popular N.C.O's in the battalion, and everyone felt his untimely demise very keenly. Personally, I shall miss him greatly. 'Ml ii

DERI. I There was a large gathering at the I Church Hall, on Tuesday night, to accord a reception to Private D. J. Evans, who was home on a few days leave from the trenches in France where he had been for upwards of 20 months. Private Evans is most popular in the district, and this was amply testified during his brief stay. Immediatly the news was received that he was coming home, Councillor W. J. Giles with his characteristic energy for doing good, took his motor car to Bargoed and met the gallant soldier on his arrival by the last train. This spirit animated the members of the Welcome Home Fund, and all other sections of the community, and which was maintained to the evening of Private Evans' departure on Wednesday. Mr W. Davies presided over the concert organised by the Welcome Home Committee, and a really enjoyable time was spent. Songs were most ably sung by Messrs Davies, Reg Edwards, W. Jones, M. Brown, and D. T. Jones. These were interspersed by recitations, short addresses, etc. Mr James Hogan was loudly applauded for his song. Mrs. E. Uzzell proved an efficient accom- panist. Private Evans was an active member of the Deri Brass Band. We sincerely wish him a safe return home. x < < The interment took place on Wednesday, at the Gelligaer Ceme- tery, of the late Edward Jones, Quarry Arms, Pant, a brother-in-law of Councillor John Edwards, and one of the oldest inhabitants of Deri. The deceased was held in the highest esteem by all classes of people, and there was a large gathering present to pay their last tribute to his memory. » M*
A SERIOUS TALK ON A SERIOUS SUBJECT. When getting over a cold, fever, or illness of any kind, be careful to guard your kidneys against a breakdown. Every day thousands are recovering from one disease or another, and it's while convalescing that great care is needed to avoid falling into the clutches of kidney trouble. The kidneys, when. in health, are the hardest worked organs in the body. No wonder that when the blood is loaded with uric acid poisons and the work of the kidneys is doubled, that they break down. Kidney weakness follows as naturally as night and day. After influenza, pneumonia, fevers and even ordinary colds; watch for kidney trouble, and don't neglect such signs as backache, headache, dizziness, nervous trouble and that dull, tired feeling, no matter how un- important they appear to you. Your kidneys will need help for a while. There is nothing more sooth- ing, nothing better than Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. This medic- ine is for the kidneys and bladder only, and has no action on the bowels. With the temporary assistance of Doan's pills, care as to diet, more rest and sleep and exercise in the open air, you can soon get back to normal. Everyone reading this frank state- ment will understand why so many in Rhymney have confidence in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.

JUMBLE SALE AT BARGOED. I A GREAT SUCCESS. I As briefly announced in our last issue, the jumble sale, held at the Workmen's Institute, on Thursday in last week, proved an unqualified suc- cess and the substantial sum of £94 has been realised by the effort to re- endow the Bargoed and Gilfach Bed at Netley Hospital. This is certain- ly most praiseworthy of the energetic band of ladies, who worked so assiduously to attain such a glorious end. There was quite a large number of helpers, and with their combined efforts, augmented by the assistance of Mr Davies, the caretaker at the Hall, and Mr G. W. Davies, The Emporium, the rooms looked a veri- table sale room. The various stalls were patronized by a large gathering of the general public. The following ladies were the stall holders:— Refreshments Mrs Yorwerth, Mrs L A. Williams, Mrs G. W. Davies, Mrs Reg Williams, Mrs D. E. Evans, and Mrs Hedgworth. Jumble Stall :-Mrs Dr. Bowen, Mrs H. Edwards, Mrs Wright, Mrs D. L. Jenkins, Mrs Cule, Mrs Simons, Mrs Harris, Mrs Carver, Mrs Dr. Davies, Mrs W. Lewis, Mrs Pembro. Fancy Stall :-Mrs Aeron, Mrs Barnett, Mrs A. S. Williams. Hoopla:—Mrs J. Harris and Miss [Jones. Fruit and Vegetables ;—Miss Yor- werth and Miss McCrea, whilst Mr I- B. Barnett was the auctioneer of the. surplus stock. The energetic presi- dent of the Committee was Mrs G, W. Davies, the Emporium treasurer, Mrs W. H. Morris, (London and Provincial Bank), and the secretarial duties were very ably carried out by Mrs A. S. Williams. The vice- presidents were Mrs E. W. Jones, Mrs D M. Yorwerth, Mrs Ebsworth and Mrs Dr. Bowen. The committee desire to express their best thanks to all those who assisted at the sale, and the public who supported the move- ment by donations or purchases. We are asked to remind the cellectors that all books should be in the hands of the secretary not later than Wednesday next.

I "BROTHER JONATHAN." The two beet-known impersonations in the world are John Bull and Brother Jonathan, supposed to characterise or caricature Eng- land and the United States of America. Other nations kave -,oniething a la,-ous to these tapes, bat nothing whi<A WM gained anyth like the same universal recogni- tion. ke many world-famous names, it< adoption was a mere accident. George Washington, in the War of Independence, found himself sadly in need of ammunition, and called a council of officers to talk over ways and means. Finding no practical sug- gestions forthcoming. Washington said, «We must ask Brother Jonathan !mean- ing his Excellency Jonathan Turnbull, the Governor of Connecticut. This was done, and the difficulty was removed and the war won. To consult Brother Jonathan then be- came a set phrase, and Brother Jonathan became the John Bull of the United States.
I LACQUER WARE. The ancient Japanese art of lacquering is in danger of extinction, for the supply of lacquer is threatening to give out. Lacquer is made from the juice ot the lacquer tree, or varnish tree. It fornix a very hard sur- face, and stands heat to such an extent that the Japanese use lacquered vessels for hot drinks. They consume about a thousand tons of lacquer every year for all sorts of articles, both for export and home use- work-boxes. tables, ifre-screens, trays, bread- baskets, carriages, and musical instruments. Three-fourths of the lacquer comes from China, but so much has been used of late years that the demand exceeds the supply. The lacquer tree is something like an ash, and takes a good time to grow to maturity. The method by which the sap is handled is wasteful, it costs a great deal to get the varnish to a mar ket, and the native ex- porters have the monopoly of it. These causes together account for the shortage of the supply.
COLLECTING-BOX MONOPOLY. It is curious how certain trades and occupations remain peculiar to certain families. There is one curious occupation, which employs a large number of men t«- day, which is in the hands of the same family that has been associated with it for many generations. It is the making of missionary-boxes. It might be supposed that any carpenter could knock together a writable receptacle for contributions to mis* sionary and other charitable funds; but the fact remains that every missionary society, ?very church organisation, that requires collecting-box goes, as a matter of cour?, tL ?hbli. ?ed nrm whose speciality it to such b=Cs
