NEXT WEEK AT THE HAN-1 BURY THEATRE. Following the fine holiday pro- gramme provided at the Hanbury Electric Theatre, the management have made arrangements for another huge attraction for Monday next and the two succeeding nights, when Samuelson, the great artist, will present that thrilling picture, Mile- stones, by Arnold Bennett and Edward Knebloch. This magnifi- cent film is 7,000 feet long, and should not be missed. In addition, the usual star films will be shown. From Thursday to Satur- day there is a most entertaining bill of fare, which embraces the brilliant fire-reel picture, entitled, Morals of Weybury," with a very funny Fox two-reeler, A Footlight Flame. The other fea- tures include the stirring Boy Scout picture, Silver Wolf, a sporting film, and a wonderfully exciting sea drama, The Shoal of Light (in two reels), another great production. Popular solos will be rendered at 1 each performance by Mr. Victor Knowles.—Watch for the big at- tractions for week commencing August 20th.
LOSS OF APPETITE. Loss of appetite is usually traceable to some form of stomach or liver trouble, and may be taken as a sign that the digestive system is in need of a stimulating tonic. When you can't eat, or when food is distasteful, just try the effeot of taking Mother Seigel's Syrup daily after your meals. This splendid stomachio remedy tones up and strengthens the digestive organs, sharpens the appetite, and regulates the whole. system. Then you not only eat your food with a relish, but more important still, the food you eat enriches your blood, nourishes your body, increases your strength and vitality, and makes vou look well, feel well and keep well. Put it to the test.
CHURCH SCHOOL TREATS AT 1 RHYMNKY. What has been observed for a long period as the children's field day in connection with the Churoh of Eng- land Sunday-schools took place on Monday (Bank Holiday) when the annual demonstration and treat was held. Favoured with beautiful weather, the event proved a great sucoess. There was, however, a tinge of sadness in the fact that owing to the lamented death of the Rev. D. Davies, the festival was observed with- out the presence of the vicar of the parish. The arrangements were, however, directed by the Rev. John Davies, 'B.A., senior curate who was assisted by the Rev. George S. Evans, curate of Abartysswg. According to the usual custom, the St. Mark's School with its superintendent, headed by the Church Drum and Fife Band marched from Tiedegar-road, being joined in Hgh-street by the St. Mathew's School, to the Parish Churoh where a short service was held. Subsequently the procession aug- mented by the St. David's School was reformed and proceeded to the upper portion of the town, returning through High-street, and through the Lawn, after which the juvenile scholars branched off and returned to the Pariah Hall where tea was provided. The turn out was of large dimensions, and compared favourably with pre- vious years.
HOUSINO REFORM IN WALES. Sir,—As a result of efforts put forward by the Welsh Housing and Development Association in co-opera- tion with the National Housing and Town Planning Council and other bodies, the President of the Local Government Board has issued to local authorities a circular announcing that the Government proposes to offer substantial financial assistance to local authorities who are prepared without delay at the conclnsion of the war to carry out approved housing schemes. Applications for such assistance, how- ever, must be sent with full particulars to the Board not later than October 15th. It is highly important that Mr Hayes Fisher's request should be ob- served by local authorities throughout Wales and Monmouthshire, where the housing shortage is known to be very serious. The promised assistance will in all probability be limited in amount and will be available only for a short period after the war. Local authori- ties, therefore, who neglect to deal with the matter or who deal with it in au inadequate manner are likely to have insufficient assistance when the time for building arrives. It will be better to over-estimate rather than under-estimate the requirements, and provision should be made for dealing not only with the existing shortage but also with the shortage that must arise consequent on the failure of ordinary speculative agencies during the difficult period following the war. The association desires very strongly to emphasise the importance of the matter, and to urge local authorities to respond fully to the lead given by the Local Government Board. In all probability also State assistance will be available for co- operative and other agencies organised on a philanthropic or semi-philanthropio basis, and it is imperative that such bodies also should prepare their sohemes without delay. The Welsh Housing and Development Association, which is purely a propa- gandist and advisory body, is prepared to assist local authorities and others contemplating town planning and housing schemes, and will send a com- petent representative to confer with such bodies or persons.—I am, &o., EDGAR L. CHAPPELL, See., Welsh Housing and Development Association. 38, Charles-street, Cardiff, Aug. 3rd. too-
BARGOED AND DISTRICT ORATORIO SOCIETY. At last an Oratorio Society has been formed in Bargoed. The first meeting was held on Wednesday, when members of various churches were present. Mr. W. R. Maddocks presided, and remarked in the course of his speech that an organ- isation of this kind was very much needed in Bargoed, and that un- doubtedly it would prove a huge success; also, he made it clearly understood that this is not to be a competitive choir, and therefore would not interfere with any choir in the district. Professor T. Gabriel, F.T.S.C., was unanimously elected conductor, and Miss Lily Gabriel, A.T.S.C., the talented young pianist, to be accompanist. Mr. E. J. Owen, A.T.S.C., was elected vice-chairman, Mr. J. Prosser treasurer, and Mr. David Jonts, .T.S.C., tecretary. --¥-p' A letter was received from Mr. T. B. Fisher, M.E., secretary of Caersalem Choral Society, pledging their support. Amongst the local singers and musicians who have made a request to join are the following:—Mr. J. Bryniog Jones, L.T.S.C., the famous tenor and conductor of the Handel Male Choir; Mr. W. Davies, A.T.S.C., conductor of the Phillar- monic Society; Mr. Roberts, A.T.S.C., conductor of the Aber- bargoed Male Choir; Mr. Gus Wear, A.T.S.C., conductor of Bethel Choir, and Mr. W. J. Hogan, A.T.S.C., conductor of Deri Welsh Baptist Choir, also Mr. David Jones, who is a member of the noted Arthur Angle's Band. It was decided to perform Handel's Mes- siah, and the first practice to take place on Tuesday evening, August 21st. As it was desirous not to have more than 200 members, it was decided to send invitations to all singers, and that the names of all new members be brought before the Conductor and Committee before being admitted to the choir. The fact that Professor Gabriel has accepted the conductorship of the choir proves in itself that the Society is going to be a thorough success.
I A BLACKWOOD HEBO. A publio demonstration to welcome Sergeant George Hodges, D.O.M.,took place at Blackwood on Thursday. At the show field, in a great open-air meeting, the Rev. A. E. Smith pre- sented the hero of the hour with a large testimonial recording his special service in rescuing a wounded officer under fire. Blackwood Silver Band and Pengam Male Voice Choir aided in the open-air concert. A captured German airship was exhibited in the field. Mrs Hodges, who had been a ohampion swimmer and winner of a number of prizes, was present.
BABGOED SUNDAY SHOW. While a performance was in pro- gress at the New-Hall, Bargoed, on Sunday, Maroh 11, and Sunday, March 18, Police-inspector Canton called in to inform the proprietor that be was violating the conditions of the cinematograph licence issued to him by the Golligaer Urban Conncil. This was the subjeot of a summons heard at Bargoed Police court on Friday, when the Welsh Halls (Limited) were the defendants. Mr Washington Bowen, Merthyr (from the office of Messrs. Frank T. James and Sons), appeared to prosecute. Mr A. Jackson Withers, the manag- ing director of the company, who appeared in the uniform of the R.A.M.C., said he was under the im- pression that he was entitled to open the hall on nights in question. At the time he had not received the renewal of the license, but had been informed by some of the members of the Coun- oil that its renewal had been granted upon the terms of the previous year's. After the second visit of the inspector he closed the hall on Sundays. Evi- dence having been given by Inspector Canton, the Bench imposed a fine of I £5 for the first offence and QlO for the geoond.

She had been in somewhat indiffer ent health for some time, but after a stay at Swansea recovered remark- ably well and was on the return journey home, when she died sud- denly at her daughter's residence at -Canton.

The remains were conveyed by the i p.m. train from Cardiff (T.V.R.) to Ferndale Cemetery on Saturday. The Rev. T. Richards, Cardiff, officiated at the house, and the Rev.
