I WAR MEMORIAL FOR RHYMNEY. I PUBLIC" MEETING. A public meeting convened by the Rhymney Urban Council, for the purpose of a permanent War Memorial for the Rhymney Urban District was held at the Parish Hall on Wednes- day eveuiug. Mr H. M. Thomas, J P., chairman of the Council, presided. There was a fair nttendauoe. The primary object of the meeting was prefaced by the presentation of gold watches to Corporals Wake and Whout, both of whom had gained the Military Medals. The Chairman in presenting the heroes with the watches on behalf of the Welcome Home Fund, congratulated the recipi- ents upon their distinguished service in the field, where he understood they had been serving their country for three years. He wished them long I ife to enjoy The frnitapof their splendid service. Conn. D. T. Williams, the chairman of the Welcome Home Fund, said this was not the first occasion they had bad the pleasure of presenting watcher to Rhyinuey boys, as an appreciation from the public for their devotion to duty and the self-sacrifioes which they had made on behalf of their King and Country. The fact that they had been awarded the M.M. showed that trey possessed judgment when they were in particularly dangerous suri-ourid. ings and did not lose their heads. A large number of Rhymney men had distinguished, themselves on the field of battle during the past 4i years. These men had made very great sacri- fices in the put, and he had himself thought of what they must endure in the trenches during the winter. He was glad, and no doubt the men were, that it was now all over and they would be able to onjoy some of the peace and comforts in the defence of which they had fought so nobly. Mr Lloyd Marks congratulated the recipients upon their valour on tbe field, by which they had won the dis- tinctions from their commanding officer. Rhymney had figured well during the war and the public Idly recognised this by the support which they had given to the Welcome Hnrne Fund, through whose auspices watches were presented. He asked the public to continue that support, so as to en- able the Committee to present each one of Rhymney's heroes with some recognition, which they could keep for many years and hand down to their children as mementoes of what their fathers had done. Mr Ben Jonea, J.P., the secretary of the Welcome Home Fund, also congratulated the young men upon their return home. He reminded the public that a number of Rhynmey men were still due to come home, and in order that each one should be recognised it was highly important that each should be supported. They wanted something more than speeches, Thty desired actions. There was a conoert to take place shortly and he asked them to advertise it weli and also support it. The Chairman then presented the two watches, and Corporals Whent and Wake expressed their thanks to the Committee and contributors for their gifts. Dealing with a perma- nent War Memorial the Chairrr.au said there was a general feeing amongst the public that something should be done, several people had spoken to him on the matter. The meeting was now open for suggestions as to the form the memorial should take. Mr H. T. Milee asked whether it was possible that the Lawn Grounds could be obtained as a public park. The offer had been made to the public some years ago. Mr Ben Jones said the project would be a-great ene, and he thought that a committee should be formed to consider the whole project and submit their finding* to another meeting. I C011 illor W. Griffiths said they were all agreed that it was desirable that a war memorial should be er-tob- lished, but it should be in the form of a general one, which would be applicable to Rhymney and /Aber- | tjsswg. This was the Irst pablie ?t I = ti n? which had been held, although the matter had been dia- cussed at the council meeting. He thought they should first pass a resolution that a war memorial was desirable and that they ask the united action of Rhymney and Abertysawg to bring about the scheme. Rev. J, Ii. Dewi Williams, Vicar <&kymoey, ?b&vmg ?XBrcascd Iüa t" tb8 _.n <s?W?M<t, I supported most heartily the sug- I gestion of Councillor W. Griffiths. The motion te establish a war memorial was carried, and a committee representative of each of the four wards was appointed to consider the several schemes and submit them to another public meeting.
I CONCERT AT DBRI. I Despite the unfavourable weather on Thursday night, there was a fairly large audience at the Church Hall, Deri, to hear the noted Bargoed Ladies' Choir, under the leadership of Madame M. J. Carrutbers, who for many years resided at Deri, and rendered good service as organist of Nazareth Congregational Churoh. She also had a most successful career as a soloist in eisteddfodau, her record being a remarkable one. The chair was occupied by Mr T. Davies, the librarian at Bargoed, the proceeds being in aid of St. Peter's Church Funds. The Chairman, in an inter- esting speech, dwelt upon the noble work the choir had accomplished for various charitable institutions, always giving their services voluntary. The concert opened with a piano- forte solo by Miss Winnie Weaver, whose clever manipulation was much admired, whilst her sister, Miss M. Weaver, was also heard to advantage at the piano. The following contribu- ted solos to an excellent programme: Madame Beddoe Thomas, Madame Bees Thomas, Misses Smith, B. J. Williams, B. Thomas, Elsie Prinoe, Madame Brown Gillingham, Master Trevor Browen. The ohoir sang Gwlad y Delyn," Excelsior," and Don't forget the Old Folks" magni- ficently. They posess beautiful voices, well-trained and their singing reached a high mark ef efficiency, reflecting greatest credit on their conductress. ■ ■■i is
Wheeled About in a Bath Chair. that was 14 Years Ago." Mrs A. North, of 143, Buckingham Road, Aylesbury, is now in excellent health, and on October let, 1917, said:- "I once wn* wheeled about in a bathohair, but that was fourteen years ago. The bathohair has been laid aside ever sinoo Doan's Pills rid me of Rheumatism, Sciatica, and Lumbago, and I have had very good health for all these 14 years." What Mrs. North said ia .3. On September 3rd, 1903, Mrs North said" I might have been an io- valid for life. For a year I was so helpless that I was wheeled about in a butbahair rheumatism, soiatiea and lumbago so crippled me I eould not stir unaided. w We knew the kidneys eaused my illness because of disordered urine, sediment and pufKness beneath my eyes. I had entirely loet hope when I first heard about, and tried, Doan's Pills, and great was my joy when they brought relief. Doan's Pills indueed kidney activity, the puffy pouches left my eyes, the urine became clear, and the stiffness and peins gradually left my limbs and my body. In a month I discarded the bath- chair and walked about in ease and comfort, much to the amazement of my neighbours, all of whom can vouch for the wonderful recovery Doan's Pills have brought about. I am un- questionably absolutely cared. (Sgd.) .j., North. T. eruure the same remits 1M Mrt. f(wih, insiot upon the same Kidney Medicine—DOAN'S BAOL.
