MILITARY Rubber Soles and Heels GETTCES. EADIE'S, Builth, Llandrindod, Talgarth & Llanwrtyd. HOW TO USE YOUR VOTE! We have won the. war for national liberties and human rights. Let us take care we keep what we have won. Beware when you vote that you don't play into the hands of the Reactionaries. There are Reactionaries in all countries, England included. Do you want a Free Parliament or a "Tied" House ? If you want Freedom, take care that there are enough Liberals in the new House of Commons. LIBERALISM stands for (1) Justice for those who fought for us by land and sea and air. They were in the front of the fight. They must be in the front of our thoughts. Our gratitude must be shown in deeds. Pensions should be sufficient in amount to secure a satisfactory standard of comfort. No niggard hand should be employed in the administration of fi pensions. Every man who was Fit to Fight is Fit to Pension if he has been wounded and disabled. (2) Equality of Opportunity. Better wages, with a minimum Standard rate Better Hours of Work Better Houses Ea3y access to the Land; Restoration of Trade Union Conditions. National Control of Monopolies, such as Railways, Canals and Mines. National Public Health Service. Full Educational Facilities for every class. Removal of. artificial restrictions on Women's opportunities. (3) Freedom. A League of Free Nations which shall free the World from the menace of War and from Conscription in Peace time. Abolition of all Unnecessary Restrictions on liberty of person, of speech, and of the Press. Free Trade. A Free House of Commons and no Tied Members. Self Govern- ment for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales to manage their own local affairs and leave the Imperial Parliament free to attend to the interests of the Empire. If we are to secure these things and if we want our Country to hold its rightful place in the new Liberal Order which is arising in every land, there must be a preponderating majority of-representa- tives of Liberalism in the new Parliament. A Liberal triumph would be the greatest security for the ordered development of reconstruction in these Isles. You cannot trust these reforms to a Party which has fought to the last ditch for property and privilege. You will never gather figs of thistles.

A Beloved Bishop. -I
A Beloved Bishop. I DR. PERCIVAL, LATE OF HEREFORD. I Dr. John Percival, Bishop of Hereford for 22 years, died last week at his residence in Oxford, where he had lived since he resigned the bishopric last year. He had been president of Trinity College, Oxford, and headmaster of Rugby. Dr. Percival, who was 84 years of age, was appointed to the see of Hereford by Lord Rosebery. He was regarded for many years as the only out and out Radical bishop in the Church of England. He scandal- ised his fellow prelates by the stand he made in favour of Wales' demand for Disestablishment, and was "suspect" on account of his close association with Nonconformity. He was a great preacher, and beloved of all in his diocese, regardless of politics.

I GUARDIANS OF THE POOR. I OUT DOOR RELIEF QUESTION. I I DISCUSSION* AT HAY. I Hay Guardian* met on Thursday, Rev. W. E. T. Morgan presiding. Others present were the Rev. H. G. Griffith. Rev. J). Morgan, and Messrs. J. Davies, T. J. Stokoe, J. W. Jone, C. Butcher, E. George, D. P. Hopkins, J. R. Griffiths, W. Jcne, H. Yorath, D. F. Powell, R. T. Breeze. A. Bishop, D. Wall, H. Price and R. T. Griffith, (clerk). The Clerk reported that the treasurer's balance was £ '7,333 18s sd. Satisfaction was expressed. I Bread Allowance. I I, A letter was read from the Local Government Board, sandioning an increase of the bread allowance of the iWorkli,.ou-e to 6 lbs. per head. -1 I Trial of the Kaiser. t The Clerk said lie had a resolution to read from I Lewisham Union, concerning the Kaiser. A Voice: Does he want relief? (Laughter.) Continuing, .the Clerk said the Lewisham guardians were of opinion that steps, should be taken to secure rile Ex-Kaiser and bring him to justice. His presence in Holland a menace to the Allied cause. Mr John Davies: I think the Kaiser should be sent to St. Helena, and all his family. The Chairman: That would be an insult to Napoleon. (Laughter.) The matter then dropped. I Officen' War Bonuses. Lengthy discussion took place on officers' salaries and bonuses, consequent to a letter read by the clerk from the National Association of Poor-Law Unions with re- gard to the question of war-bonuses. No definite action was taken in the matter, the Chair- man adding that the war, to all intents and purposes, was over, and that the officers themselves had not brought the question forward. If they wished to do so, it was up to them to take action. The llcarxl concurred and the matter dropped. A resolution, received from Swan-sea, was. adopted with acclamation. It was from the South Wales and Monmouthshire Poor-Law Conference, and read as fol- lows:—) That this Conference utterly condemns the omission from the Re-construction Sub-committee (whose terms of reference empowered it to deal with the ques- tion of the continuance or abolition of Boards of Guar- dians) of a proportion of representative guardians as members, thereof; (2) that such omissjon was a gross injustice to a loyal, dutiful, and long-established public body charged with difficult and delicate duties, was in- consistent with British fair-play, and practically with- out precedent in the annals of Parliamentary or minis- terial procedure; (3) that in the judgment of this con- ference the findings lof the Re-Construction Committee are quite uncalled for and unjustified in the light of the va»t improvement effected for a considerable time past in the administration of the Poor-Law, an improvement that would have taken place earlier but for the taut leading strings in which Board. of Guardians have been held by the Local Government Board; and (4) that the foregoing resolutions be sent to the Prime Minister, the Local Government Board, and the Minister of Re- Construction, with the request that they may receive due consideration, with a view to fairer and fuller in- quiry being made before Boards of Guardians are abolished or their duties handed over to other public bedies. Rev. W. E. T. Morgan said he would propose a reso- lution in the same words. The way guardians were be- ing treated in this respect was abominable. He there- fore proposed the resolution be adopted. Mr J. Davies, seconding, said that guardians all did their duty and did it well. The resolution was then adopted. ip X'mas Extras. In dealing with the question of X'mas extras for in- mates, the Brecon Union's seale was quoted by the Clerk, and it was unanimously decided to adopt the same scale, viz., adult bed-ridden patients, 3(6; ordin- ary adults, 2/6; and children, 2/ With regard to X'mas care at the Workhouse, it was decided by the Board to do their best for the inmates in this respect as far as circumstances, would allow. Increase of Outdoor Relief. Mr J. W. Jones, who gave notice of motion at the previous meeting, moved that the present rate of out- door relief be increased all round. Mr Jones referred to the big inerea. ze in the cost of food, as compared with pre-war days, and said that, although in some cases the Board had made an increase of 20 per -cent. in out-door relief, it did not, by any means, come up to the rise in the cost of food, which had soared up 80 per cent. What had been granted in the way of re- lief up to the present time was not nearly sufficient, and something should be done by the Board for poor people concerned. He, therefore, proposed that a direct in- crease of 2/- per head per week in each case be granted. Mr Chas Butcher said that in :-ome cases the Board had given more than 20 per cent. increase. The Clerk stated that the percentages quoted and given by Mr J. W. Jones were not his figures. He fan- cied they had been given to Mr Jones haphazardly with- out having been looked up. In his. opinion the cases in question should be dealt with on their merits. Mr J. W. Jones &aid the poor people they had to deal with were not many, and he did not like the idea that they had to depend upon charity. Mr Butcher: If the charity were removed they would be in a funny position. Continuing. Mr Jones observed that the poor people were a responsibilitey to them as Board of Guardians, and he would very much like to see them placed in a more independent position. Mr T. J. Stokoe seoended Mr W. Jones.\3 proposition, and said that they were all agreed that, as a Board of Guardian", they should first of all he guardians of the rates. Rev. H. G. Griffith observed he would like to propose a direct negative to Mr Jones's proposition. It was a reflection upon them, as Pocr-)Law administrators, and, if the matter went out to the public that they did not do their duty to the poor, it would most certainly be an injustice. They, as a Board, in his opinion, had always done their duty to the poor. Mr J. Davies remarked that he would like to second the amendment of a direct negative. Hay Board of Guardians had the best reputation in Breconshire and Radnorshire, and inmates perferred their rnion to others. Mr Chas Butcher then suggested that the proposed incfease otf 2/- per head be withdrawn, and that each individual case of out-door relief be taken on its' merits. Mr H. Yorath seconded. Rev. H. G. Griffith subsequently withdrew his amendment of a direct negative, and agreed to Mr Butcher's proposition. Mr J. W. Jones, speaking again upon the subject, .said no attempt had been made by anyone to contra- dict any of the statements he had made with regard to out-door relief. All the cases should have fair-play. If the Board were going to err in any way, it should err on the side of generosity and give poor people a good time for once in their lives. Mr Charles Butcher's proposition was then carried. Mr J. W. Jones's original proposition of an in- crease of 2/- per week for each case was only supported by one member, Mr T. J. Stokoe.

Glasbury Centenary. I Methodism at Cwmbach. INTERESTING STORY OF A VILLAGE CAUSE. Sunday and Monday, December 1st and 2nd, 1918, were red letter days in the history of Cwmbach (Glasbury) Wesleyan Methodist Church, for the centenary of this cause was then celebrated. Rev. J. Wesley Hughes, the superintendent minister, though not in other respects an autocrat, assumed the role of the centurion," and directed that the preachers on both days should preach from the texts taken by the ministers who officiated at the opening services in 1818. Mr James Thomas, of Brecon (who has been serving this little church, occasionally, for 48 yeaxs), and Pastor C. W. Senior, of Hay, were the preachers on the Sunday, Revs. J. Wesley Hughes and C. A. Harries taking the services on the following day. Different parts of the circuit were well represented, and one good brother, who has removed from Glasbury, walked ten miles to be present at the Monday services. A free tea was provided for visitors on this day, and, at 7 p.m., Mr James Williams, of Hay, presided over the last of an excellent series of services. Mr Hughes gave the following interesting and inspiriting address, after which the Doxology was most heartiiy suug: Words will even fail to express the indebtedness of Methodism to the zeal and steadfastness of its village churches—the small, struggling, loyal "societies" which, through succeeding generations, have kept the flag flying amid vicissitudes and difficulties of which they who dwell among the wealth and crowds of towns and cities can never form an adequate conception. Their foundations have been laid, often, in the presence of opposition and persecution; their growth has been slow and stunted; their maintenance has been secured only by a sacrifice and a loyalty deserving of the greatest admiration. That many of them have continued to live at all is a subject of wonderment when the conditions are careftftly examined, and their existence, in spite of the discouragements which they have experienced, is a matter for deep gratitude, and praise to Almighty God. To despise these country BBthels because they are smaH, to neglect them because they are difficult of access, is an attitude which can only be assumed by those who are ignorant of their history, and of their value to the larger life of our great church. Not only are these little folds of Christ" loyal to the best traditions of Methodism in point of doctrine and Christian conduct, but they produce that type of men and women who, when circumstances compel their removal into the larger churches of our towns and cities, are to be found among the best and most faithful of their members, and the most trusted of their office bearers. It would be no extravagance of language to assert that the best and choicest of Methodism, past and present, is produced, not among the hurry and bustle of the city, but in the calm, pure atmosphere of the struggling, unobtrusive village Bethels. Methodism owes more to its village societies than can ever be expressed. As the character of these services indicate, Wesleyan Methodism was planted in the district of Glasbury a little over one hundred years ago. The sanctuary in which we are now gathered to worship God was erected exactly a century ago, but the cause was called" into existence a few years earlier. It is the direct product of the open-air evangel. In the face of much opposition and ill-treatment, the first Methodist preacher proclaimed the Word of Life in this neigh- bourhood. His message brought liberty and joy to many, but especially to Sarah Price, of Ciltwrch and she, upon the advent of winter, graciously threw open her home to the faithful evangelist, for the holding of regular Methodist services. Her example was followed by others, among them being William Jones, whose son,*Thomas, became a minister of our church, and laboured with considerable success for the honoured period of 53 years. For the first few years of its history, the little church appears to have experienced a somewhat chequered career, owing, probably, to the breaking up of the homes, which, in turn, gave it shelter. But God did not forsake His people. His spirit was working upon the heart and conscience of a man who was destined to become the medium of the permanent establishment of Methodism in Glasbury, and of a resting place for the Ark af the Lord. The Word found lodgment in the heart of 'Squire Hargest, of Skynlas, and he, like King David, found no rest until "he had found out a place for the Lord, and a habitation for the mighty God of Jacob." Speaking of this soon after the opening of the chapel, he said: "When traversing my fields, everything about me, even the birds, seemed to cry, I Lost! lost! lost!' Many times have I climbed the mountains alone to pray, but there was no peace, no rest. One day, in the summer of 1818, when crossing a meadow, God spoke to me and said, 4 Give that corner of this meadow to the Methodists, and build a cliapel. Thus were the prayers of the little band of faithful Methodists at Cwmbach answered of God. In October, 1818, 'Squire Hargest presented the site for the erection of the first Methodist Chapel in -this district, and, we are told, subscribed very liberally towards the cost. He also joined the society at its opening, remaining a faithful member up to his death. For some year before he died, he acted as one of the "leaders of the society serving it with great zeal and devotion. In his death he forgot not the interests of his spiritual home, as the tablet on these walls eloquently testifies. On the first day of December, 1818, the Chapel was opened amid great rejoicing on the part of the little society. The preachers who officiated were the Ministers of the Brecon Circuit, the Revs. William Woodall and James Dixon. A record of the texts of their sermons has been kept and some faithful soul has left his impressions of the services and discourses in the following lines 1 Samuel, vii., 12. My Ebenezer here I'll raise, I In shouts and songs of endless praise To the great God, who built this Frame In honour of His glorious Name. Isaiah lxii., 1. For Zion I'll not hold my peace, Till filled with truth and righteousness, And light breakforth from pole to pole And filled with faith is every soul. Psalm xxvii., 4. Lord, to Thy house will I repair, With holy joy and filial fear, Till called to dwell with Thee aboT Where all is calm, and peace, anaove. Lord, in Thy temple I'll abide, Till Thou shalt seat me by Thy side, Where consolations ever flow, And all Thy precious love I know. 2 Cor., ix., 8. God is sufficient of His grace, To fill with love and holiness The saints that may assemble hare, Till they before His face appear. The lines may not claim to have much of the poetic quality about them, perhaps, but they certainly breathe that spirit of gratitude and devotion which filled the breasts of those who participated in those memorable opening services one hundred years, ago. The burial- ground adojining the chapel was also a gift of Squire Hargest, and was conveyed to the trustees in the year 1836; and thereto hangs a touching tory :-A young woman, named Clements, who had found the Saviour at one of the services held in the chapel, expressed a wish. whilst dying, to he buried near the Mcred spot. The wish came. to the can of the good squire, and he, by an immediate gift of the necessary ground, made it possible for the solemn desire to be realised. Since its erection the chapel has. been twice renovated-in 1867, when the Rev. Richard Roberts officiated at the re- opening services, and in 1887, a year after our good friend, Mr Thomas Jones, Skynlas, was appointed chapel in 1818. These, the original trustees, were:- chapel steward. Minor improvements were also carried cut in the year 1880. No historical survey of the cause at Glas.bury could be complete without reference to David Price, schoolmaster, of Talgarth, who assisted Sarah Price in the inauguration of tM early Christmas morning service, which exerted such a powerful influ- ence on Glasbury Methodism, and which maintained its popularity for at lea.st 40 years; William Price, of Boughroom Castle, one of the first (if not the first) leaders of the society; William Butcher and Jane Beavan, two of the earliest member., George Butcher and his worthy wife, etc. Worthy of remem- brance are those upon whose willing shoulders devolved the responsibilities associated with .the erection of the chapel steward. Minor improvements were also carried Richard Hargest; Clement Probert, Tymawr, Llanigon; Richard Williams, Great House, Pipton; Jonathan Thomas, Hay; William Jones, Glasbury; Edward Probert Braddws; Roger Pugh, Boughrood; James Williams, Aberll unvey; John Higgins, Painscastle; and Thomas Jones, schoolmaster, Glasbury. One by one these faith- ful ten passed to their reward, and at the jubttee of the -chapel, which was celebrated in the year 1868, only one was left-the venerable- Jonathan Thomas, of Hay. It, therefore, became necessary to appoint additional trus- tees, and the following names were enrolled :-Charlpg. Butcher and W. Vaughan, of Glasbury; R. Brearley, W Owen, James Michael and J. P. Lloyd, of Hay; H. C. Rich, D. Jones, W. J. Roberts, O. P. Larkin, J. E. Nott, and W. >1. Brien, of Brecon; and D. Price, of Talgarth. These, in turn, have 'obeyed the call to higher service and the reward of the faithful; but other should- ers have loyally taken upon them the "burden of love," and so the "Sanctuary of the Lord" continues to be cared for. The spiritual interests of the work, so jealously fostered by the fathers, remain in loving hands and hearts. The preaching of the Word, the oversight of the young, the claims of our connexional system, the traditions of our beloved Methodism—these things will not be allowed to suffer while such men as Jones and Hobby and Price and Connop are in charge of affairsb at Cwmbach. Loyalty to Christ, a loving attachment to Methodism, a generosity of heart beyond oppression, have been the outstanding features of this little Church during the one hundred years. which come to such a fitting close this evening. The history of the past cen- tury shall not be forgotten, but let us not rest upon the past, glorious though i.t be. Rather let us look for- ward, trustfully, to greater things in the future. Let all our efforts be consecrated to the endeavour to make the coming century even more glorious in its prosperity than the one we are now celebrating. We have every- thing on our ,ide! Greater oportunitie Better facilities! A wider experience and larger knowledge than our fathers possessed—and withal we had the Divine promise upon which they rested and prospered. Tho word of the Lord comes to us at the close of the century as it came to them at its opening" And God is able to make all grace abound toward you: that ye, alwavs having all .sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work" (II. Cor., ix., 8). For all the necas- I sities of the work—both material and spiritual-the, Lord will provide, if only we are willing mediums for His grace and goodness. The Lord gives to us that we, in turn, may sacrifice unto Him, and no man is the poorer for what he give*; unto the Lord. "We lose what on ourselves we spend, We have no treasure without end Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend, Who givest all." No man has ever wanted that which he has offered in sacrifice to God Not only will it bring glory to the Name of God by the prospering of His Kingdom, but it will redound to the temporal and eternal advantage of the man himself. "Every man, according as he pur- poseth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly. or of necessity for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work." What an appropriate message for the closing service of this centenary I What comfort and joy we find in the past of our history- here in this little Church! What encouragement for the future I We have the glorious- example of our father to follow. We have the evidence of God's faithfulness unto them in all their trials and difficulties, because they trusted Him and served Him with zeal- and devotion and generosity! And -we have His pro- mise-the same promisee our fathers enjoyed-we have our God's promise to inspire us, as we face the tasks and the cpoprtunities of a new -century. The God of our fathers is our God! Only let us trust Him. Only let us serve Him as they served Him, and their pros- perity shall be ours—yea and greater! God baptize us anew with the spirit of faith and love-the spirit of con- secration and service—the spirit that shall make the future of his little church better, brighter, and more- prosperous than its most prosperous past.
