I I Giving in Doesn't Help. I IT is not surprising that women do sometimes despair. They are so concerned for the welfare of others, the care of the family and the happi- ? ness of home, that their own health ? is apt to be neglected. When backache, nrinary disorders, nervousness or loss of flesh result, it shows that the kidneys are weaken- ing, that uric poisons are gathering in the system, and that continued neglect may lead to:- Rheumatism, Sciatica, Gravel, < Stone, Inflamed Kidneys and Blad- der, or to stages of incurable kidney disease j It is no use giving in. Get more I fresh air and sleep instead. Lighten the work if possible. Take only plain, wholesome food, with plenty of milk, plenty of water, but no un- necessary stimulants. Strengthen the kidneys with Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. Other people have i proved the value of this special kidney medicine.

Jones, of Hill View,' 51, Park Road, Bargoed, Glam., said — Through pprspiring rather freely during the hot weather, and then sitting about, I caught a chill, and soon after began to have sharp, shooting pains in my back and down the hips. I could hardly straighten myself. I als- had fits of dizziness, and sometimes felt as if I should fall. There was a sediment in the water like brick-dust. Knowing that my friends had bene- fited by taking Doan's backache kidney pills, I resolved to try them. They eased my back wonderfully, and I be- came free from the heavy, depressing feeling that bad possessed me. (Signed) A. JONJlS." On April 12th, 1916—nearly five years later-Mrs. Jones said I am pleased to say I am in the best of health. Doan's pills cured me some years ago."

On Monday last a carnival and sports were held at Pontlottyn, with a view of augmenting the Memorial Fund to the Pontlottyn men who have given their all in this great struggle for righteousness and liberty. When the project was first mooted, the enthusiasm displayed indicated that the event was bound to prove a 8access J and the large crowd that assembled in the historic Mile Field on Monday most have delighted the energetic committee, who had worked with aach enthusiasm for several weeks.

Penry Williams, Cartref, Pontlottyn general secretary, upon whose shoulders the brunt of the work de- volved, and the great success achieved was in a largo measure due to their j indefatigable efforts. The Carnival procession started from the town, and headed by a Brals Band, proceeded to the Mile Field where the judging took place. Captain Bone was the chief marshal, and Mr Morris Davies, (Nelson Hotel) chief steward. The judges were:—Mrs Evans, Mrs D. Kendrick, Abertysswg; Mrs A. Bey- non Davies, Mrs A. Saunders, Miss E.

NEXT WEEK AT THE HANBURY THEATRE. The management of this favourite picture house has arranged a huge holiday programme for the patrons of the Hanbury Electric Theatre, next week. Foremost in the list for Mon- day, Tuesday, and Wednesday, is the thrilling Pathe gold rooster, The Arms and the Woman which as the title suggests, is full of excitement from start to finish. Another fiue film is "The Russian Revolution," depicting actual scenes in -Petrogad and Moscow. The comic features include, a Triangle two reel screen, entitled, Nick of time Baby" and Villainous Pursuit," a Keystone comedy. There is also a stirring two reel drama The Floating Death. There are matinees on Bank Holiday and Tuesday. From Thursday to Saturday, another excellent pro- gramme has been arranged, when the exciting and sensational drama, The Golden Arrow in four parts will be produced, featuring Mary Corvin. Others on the list are the great Fox comedy, There's many a Fool," and an exciting drama, 'On the Hige Seas,' in two reels, with the usual musical selections by Mr Victor Knowles each evening.
ABERBARGOED. On Saturday last a successful flag day was organised by the Free Churches of the district in aid of the British Sailors and Soldiers Society, when the sum of 210 17s. 5d. was collected. Rev. J. W. Perry was the organiser of the event, and with Mr J. S. Perkins, the treasurer, and Mr T. Pugh, Librarian, carried out the event in a very creditable manner. The band of convassers are to be complimented upon the results of their efforts. 8--8 As the result of the recent sports held in aid of the St John Ambulance Association, Captain Ben Rees, the secretary, has received a receipt from the head offices of the Association in South Wales for jCl39 7s. 6d. Mr Rees informs us that with the monies still due from one colliery, a total of £150 will be reached, This is very gratifying to all those who took part in the splendid work. Sinoe Capt. Rees' return from France, he has been instrumental in getting together no less than iCI,300 for charitable works. Truly, a very commendable result of many hours of labour. < < < The Monmouthshire County Council, at their meeting on Wednesday, de- cided to make Bedwellty Urban Dis- trict Council Area a separate Pen- sions Committee Area. w The whole of the newly made hay owned by Mr. M. Morgan, Pwllglas Farm, was destroyed by fire, on Wednesday. We are delighted to learn that the son of Mr and Mrs T. B. Fisher, M.E., who had been invalided from the front for a considerable time, has so far recovered as to be discharged from the Leeds Hospital. There is every probability that in consequence of the nature of his wounds, he will not again be called upon for active service.

—- COUNTY COUNCIL VACANCY AT RHYMNEY. MR. JOHN EVANS ELECTED. The quarterly meeting of the Mon- moutbshire County Council was held on Wednesday at Newport. Amongst the matters considered was the tilling of the vacancy in the Rbymney South Division.—Councillor John Evans, M.E. Abertysswg was duly nominated, and in support of whom Mr W. S. Nash said Mr Evans had risen from a collier boy to the position of colliery agent under the Tredegar Iron and Coal Company.—Mr W. L. Cook, Blaenavon, proposed that Mr W. C. Williams, a local Labour councillor, be elected. He protested against the action of the police in preventing people attending a meet- ing of the Liberal 500 unless they possessed one of the official circulars calling the meeting. Alderman S. N. Jones said they bad honourably abided by the party truce in previous vacancies. De3pite the threats of the Labour party, thoy would find that the party of sanity and true progress would not fear to face the electors.—Councillor Minton What party is that ?—Alderman S. N. Jones The Liberal party, of course— the party to which you owe more than you owe to yourselves.—Mr John Evans obtained 36 votes and Mr Williams eight votes. Mr W. L. Cook moved that they protest against the action of the police. Alderman S. N. Jones said that would be unfair to the police until they heard the police side of the matter. Why not refer the complaint to the Standing Joint Committee ? This course was adopted. The Local Government Board Com- mittee recommended that it was not expedient to entertain the proposal to create two new wards in the area of the Bedwellty District Council. It was decided that the applications of the Abertillerv, Abersychau, Bed- wellty, Ebbw Vale, and Tredegar Councils to be appointed separate Pensions Committees be agreed to. tti
THE BARGOED CARNIVAL. I The arrangements for the grand carnival, sports, and baby show to be held in Bargoed Park on Bank Holi- day Tuesday, in aid of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Reception Fund, have been comploted, and if favoured with genial weather, the event should be a big success. With snch a varied pro- gramme, a most enjoyable afternoon can be anticipated by young and old. Competitors in the carnival must be at the Park by 1.30 p.m. Muoh in. tei est is being taken in the children's choral oontests, for which Mr Henry Smith will be the adjudicator.

CEFN FOREST HORTICUL- TURAL SHOW. III common with almost every vil- lage, Cefn Forest, near Pengam, will have its own attraction next Monday (Bank Holiday), when the Flower Show Committee will hold its annual show, for which some excellent exhib- its have been received. Arrangements have been made by Mrs. H. Thomas, Hanbury Lodge, Bargoed, and Miss Beddoe, Maesycwmmer, two enthusi- astic Red Cross workers, for having a fancy stall at the show, with a view of helping the funds of the latter lauable movement. The show com- mittee, with the energetio secretary, Mr T. J. Watkins (schoolmaster) have been working very enthusiastically for some time, and we hope their efforts will be crowned with sueceis. t
MINERS' MEETING AT I RHYMNEY. On Sunday afternoon a mass meet- ing of the Rhymney miners was held at the Cinema, the main business being to consider the scheme for the combing out of young miners. The chair was taken by Mr William Richards, who explained that the meeting had been called by the joint committees of the Mardy, New Duff- ryn, and Pontlottyn pits. The management complained that some of the workmen did not take advan- tage of the facilities afforded them for obtaining their pay-tickets on Friday night, and they threatened to dis- continue the system. The committee had striven hard to get this system into force, and felt it would be a great loss if it were discontinued. Mr George Jones said that one advantage of getting their pay tiokets on Friday was that they could rectify any shortage. Councillor D. T. Williams corrobor- ated, and said they had fought hard to get the system, and the least they could do was to help to keep it in vogue. Councillor David James, J.P., followed, after which a resolution was passed that the management be asked to penalise the offending workmen as suggested by the committee. 18:
THE QELLIQAER TRIBUNAL. I The members of the Gelligaer tribunal had a field day on Wednes- day, devoting the whole of the day to the cases on the list. This was done with the object of charing off the whole of the number to enable a cessa- tion of meetings during August. Mr E. Richards, J.P., presided, and the other members present were Messrs Edmund Jones, J.P., Ben Hugbes, W. J. Giles, Jonah Evans, and Jenkin Edwards, with Mr C. J. Samuel, clerk, and Mr Rowland Thomas, military representative.

HUMOROUS EPITAPHS. In tile churchyards of this country arc to be foumd many peculiar and humorous epitanhe. Here is one from a Pt-mbroke- re churchyard Here he 1, and no wonder I'm dead, For tke wheel of a wagon went over my head. In Wasterham churchyard, Kent, there is to be lound an epitaph in which grammH has Woen neglected for the sake of rhyme:— Cheerful in death I close my eyes; Into Thy arme, my God, I flies. An epitaph on a man of the name of George Denham runs as follows:— Here lies the body of Geordie Denham If ye saw him now ye wadna ken him. An epitaph in Wolverhampton churchyard reads m follows:— Here lie the bones Of Joseph Jones, Who ate whilet he was able; But onc-e o'erfed, He drop down dead, And fell beneath the table. When from the tomb, To meet his doom, He rises amidst sinners; Since he must dwell In Heav'n or Hell, Take him—which gives best dinners. From Canterbury we have an example written by a sorrc)iviiig Of children she bore twenty-four; Thank the Lord, there will be no more. In Worcester churchyard may be found the following :— Mammy and I together lived Just two years and a half, She went firt, I followed next- The cow before the calf.
NAVAL MARKS OF RANK. The numerous different branches of ser- vice in the Navy all have their distinguish- ing marks, and it is interesting to know what some, at any rate, of them men. The ranks are in most cases indicated by the braiding on the cuff. The medical -staff' indicated with bands of gold braid of various widths with a red stripe between them. The braiding worn by a fleet sur- geon consists of three rows of gold braid with red lines between them. A staff sur- geon is the same, but the centre line of gold braid in this case is rather narrower, and a surgeon wears two bands of gold braid with a single red stripe between them. The braiding of a fleet-paymaster is three rows of gold braid with white between them. A naval instructor of fifteen years' seniority vears three rows of gold braid with pale blue between them. A clerk has one fine white stripe with three gold buttons under- nerth. A head schoolmaster has one fine band of gold braid and one of blue, and three buttons below. A chief carpenter and electrician has one band of gold braid with three buttons underneath.
FACTS ABOUT BRAZIL. The Federal Republic of Brazil is the largest State in South America, and is greater in area than European Russia, Austria-Hungary, Germany, France, Nor- way and Sweden, Denmark, Italy, and Greece together. The population of Brazil is estimated at about 16,000.000, including 1,500,000 Italians, 1,000,000 Portuguese, and 250,000 Germans. Brazil was formerly an Empire, but at the revolution of 1889 the Empire became a Republic, and Don Pedro II., the then Emperor, was exiled. The National Congress, the legislative authority of Brazil, consists of a Chamber of Depu- ties and a Senate, which meet annually, but no laws can be passed without the Presi- dent's sanction. The army of Brazil con- sists of 40,000 men, besides 20,000 gendarmerie. Brazil is the naval power of South America.
"PARTY" WALLS. Unless a house is detached or semi-de- tached the side walls are not built to sup- port themselves, but take their strength from the corner houses. Therefore, when a house in a row or block is pulled down, the "party walls of the houses on each side of where it stood have to be propped to each other in order that the strain may be relieved. This is technically termed" shor- ing." Sometimes the front wall of a house has to be strengthened by props, but this is usually in consequence of the foundation sinking or "settling down."
.I DANGER SIGNALS. Do you know that red is the most con- gpicuous colour? That is why billar-boxes, mail-vans, fire-engines, and fire-alarms are painted that colour. A red hgfct such as that used on our railways and at sea as a danger signal has a range of over three miles. and cannot be mistaken for any other colour. All other colours—except green- are liable to be confusing from a distance, and in any case their range rarely exceeds a mile.

ABERBARGOED'S HOLIDAY EVENTS. I NEXT MONDAY'S SPORTS, Etc. The spirit of enterprise which has permeated the Aberbargoed Relief Committee, in their latest undertak- ing, viz., athletic sports, carnival, and baby show, to be held on Monday next (BankHoliday) is worthy of every commendation and encouragement.
