I F H II IJJ t t t. I I SOCCER AND RUGBY PROSPECTS. t I (By "Kettle"). I Soccer is evidently not going to suffer I iirom want of patronh this season. One was really surprised to see so many Spectators at the trial match last Satur- day. The enthusiasm was electrifying and augured well for ilia coming months. The game was good, but not great. It was of too spasmodic a character. The flayers at times set a hot pace and failed lb keep it up. Thero was then a quiet •fsjpell until they recovered sufficiently to Wake another burst. On the whole Aough there was not much cause for &rumbling. It was first game and grumbling. It was the first game an d -one must not expect football of a high d,a.sa at the commencement of the season. The New Men. Then it must be considered that most the players had travelled during the night to town, this being rather a dis- advantage to them. After the game the directors approached five. of the players. all of whom signed cfn for the coming aeason. They were Gwyn, Birmingham; Marsden, BirTningha-m, Crisp, Llanidloes, Jones, Aberystwyth; Lloyd, Aberyst- wyth; and Evans, Llanelly. The new payers were delighted with their recep- 110n at the hands of the directors, and great kroncs8 was manifested on their j part to be included in the team. iOtn Pentre to-day. I To-day real football commences and! the local team journey to Ton Pentre in I 4be Southern League competition. The feam will t)o: Goal, Bailiff; backs, James t Md Blain; halves. Gough, Martin, and I Sorris; forwards, Morris, Leavey, Levi, Xouse, and Crisp. I A well balanced team. I There can be no doubt that in the Back line the team will be well served. while the half-back line, which in pre- war days had the proud distinction of 'Being the finest in the. Principality, being composed of the BaJDø trio will hold its own against the best in Wales at the present time. Bailiff is back in his old j dharge, and car well he depended on. In the forwards Morris is in his accustomed position on the right wing, whilst Bert Leavey • opatees inside, Levi, who is al- ready well known in Halfway Park needs 110 introduction. He fills the centre for- ward position, and if he fulfills the pro- suise he has shown he is likely to prove a great asset to the club. At outside left J. Crisp, a promising wipger will be seen for the first time in the Scarlet jprsey, and he will be, watched with in- terest. Rouse, who played a number of eiever games for the Scarlets last year, turns out at inside left. The result of I' the game will bo awaited with great in- west locally. the New Captain. I Frank Martin has been elected captain ) ror he ensuing season. It will be re- BBembered that Martin, who has been associated with the club for many years, captained the team during some of its 1 most successful of past seasons. I LLANELLY A.F.C. FIXTURE LIST.

I Rugbyitc-s are wondering what the coming seamen has. in store for them. Last sea.son they were treated to such a succession of thrills, and sensational vie- ilories over Colonial tenrn'S, not to men- tion others, that the supporters, are curious as to whether similar treats are ir. store for them. Unless those in the know are hopelessly mistaken, the talent available is such as to warrant the most sanguine expectations. It is pro- posed to play a trial match at Stradey next Saturday when a team will be pitted against the old team. Those desirous of pliying aro requested to communicate ttiiii the Secretary. Mr. E. E. Bailey, Jamea street, by Monday next. I I Why not a Supporters' Club ? I The above is a question that is fre- quently used by Rugbyites. Personally, I see no reason why such an organization should not be formed, and everything tells in its favour. It is common know- ledge what such a club has done for Soccer locally, and there is not the slightest doubt that it has been largely responsible for popularizing the game. Perhaps the new blood on the committee will give the matter their consideraion, LLANELLY RUCBY FIXTURES, Season 1919-20. 1919. Sept. 6.-Practice Home Sept. 13.—Pembroke Away. Sept. 20.-Bath Away.

Guy Thornton on Boxing
Guy Thornton on Boxing PLEA FOR CLEAN SPORT. I During a most forceful and telling ad- dress to perhaps the largest number of men who have ever, in the history of Llanelly, gathered in a place of worship, Captain Guy Thornton, from New Zea- land, said:- "I love sport. I love to see a young man taking a keen and intelligent in- terest in any game of skill and strength. I myself have played football for one of I the best (Rugby) teams in New Zealand, I I was and am a keen tennis player; I have done a good deal of long distance foot-racing; only a week ago I swam over six miles in one day. I repeat, I love sport but it must be clean sport. I have taught boxing-my hands (the speaker stretched them out to the view of his I audience) show only too evident signs of ¡ the fact that I have had to use them to defend doped soldiers from robbery and worse, but whilst I like clean boxing, I would ask this question:— "It it clean boxing when men fight for money not for sport, when a prize fight ¡ is promoted only to benefit the promoters I when men wager only that they may make II money out of the mistaken judgment of their fellows." All clean sport is right, but sport that is not clean is wrong. The first benefits, the second degrades men. When the lust for money creeps in true sport disappears.

Do you wake in the morning feeling heavy and tired, stiff in the joints, and with a bad taste in your mouth ? Have you tired, dragging, sharp pains in the limbs or back ? Do you feel dull and irritable ? You need proper treatment for your kidney trouble, the kidneys are not functioning properly, and the poisonous uric acid which should pass out through them is re- tained in the blood. De Witt's W idney and Bladder Pills have already proved themselves absolutely successful in thousands of cases, and testimonials are pouring in from all over the world. Mrs. Wykes, of 23. Victoria Street, Nuneaton. said in 1913: "For over 11 years I suffered with terrible kidney trouble and most acute backache pains. At various times through this long period of suffering I have been in a very bad condition, pains striking me across the back and loins. To stoop was torture, and every action was a trouble. It was just as if a vice had got hold of me and was screwing me up. I tried many remedies, first one and then another recommended me to different things, but nothing seemed to touch my case. During the early part of 1913 I heard of De Witt's Kid- ney and Bladder Pills, and determined to give them a trial. I am thankful I did, because I seemed to gain relief after the very first dose. I got an- other 2s. 9d. box from Mr. Baker's shop in Abbey street, and felt much better. I got brighter and more active and in fact felt a different woman. I intended to make a good cure of my case, seeing that I was getting so much relief, and I am pleased to say that I have done so, because for the last 12 months I have been absolutely clear of my old complaint and have not had the slightest trace of any kind of backache." Nearly three years afterwards— April, 1916.-Mrs. Wykes said: "De- Witt's Kidney and Bladder Pills did me permanent good, there is not the slight sst doubt about that: I always recommend them with a strong feeling of gratitude for what they have done for me." With this splendid testimony in mind can you continue to suffer without giving Do Witt's Kidney and Bladder Pills a trial ? For rheumatism, gout, lumbago, sciatica, bladder pains and inflamation, stone, and Bright's disease they are absolutely unrivalled. They never fail to give relief. Within 24 hour5: the relief from pain and a certain blue tinge in the urine show that they have passed right through the kidneys and commenced their work.
