A woman of forty who toddles and is unhappy on her feet, who makes others imagine that her feet aile tender and sore, can easily look sixty. To stand well yrrar feet most be comfort- able. And this is a good thought for the elderly woman. Make your feet comfortable. Pow old women are able to stand well beoanee tbey have aches and pains which make their feet feel ill at ease. Feet can be made more comfortable by rubbing them ..ith vaseline every night. They can be kept comfortable by changing the shoes every day. Never wear the same pair of shoes every day. iomiir.

1 STORY FOR TO-DAY. » I Played and Lost. 1 A slight, pale-faced girl sat silently toying with a piece of needlework on the low porch of her mother's house; a, handsome young man lay stretched at her feet. On the lawn another young couple were engaged in a. game of croquet. The sun's last gleam lighted up Grace Munson's face with a. halo of beauty, and Bernard Norton looked at her with undisguised admiration. There is nothing so lovely as a lovely woman," he said aloud. The pale cheek of Clarice Barton flushed as she quickly glanced at the speaker. It was the third time within the hour that he had referred to her cousin Grace's beauty. "Grace is indeed lovely," she said. "I would give half my life to be as beautiful." "And I would give half my fortune to have you so." No sooner were the words uttered than Norton would have given much to recall them; but he had spoken unthinkingly. Clarice shrunk as though, she had been stung, arose quickly, and went into the Louse. I am in a. pretty fix now!" Norton mut- I tered as he rose and walked across the lawn. That waa a nice speech for a fellow to make to the girl he expects to marry! And Clarice is as proud as Lucifer, too high strung as she is plain, and that is saying a great deal, by Jove. I never noticed her lack of beauty so much before Grace came. A pity one can't find all things combined in one woman. Wonder if I ought to apologise? Oh. well, I'm going away in ten days, and she'll for- give and forget. Absence makes the hea.rt softer." And with this consoling thought he strolled on to join Grace Munson, whose companion was just taking his leave. Grace was like a delicate flower sparkling with the dew of morning. She had soft blue eyes, an exquisite complexion, and golden hair. Altogether she made a picture of rare beauty, and it was no wonder that Bernard Norton found pleasure in merely looking at heT. That evening Clarice did not appear in the drawing-room, and Bernard was free to devote himself to her lovely cousin. Mrs. Barton observed his conduct with displea- sure; from the first she had not approved of her daughter's suitor, and wondered what attraction the eaxelees, frivolous yuung man held for her sensible Clarice. Next morning a note was handed Norton. Its contents filled him with mingled annoy- ance and relief. When you receive this," Clarice wrote, I shall h-ave gone to my aunt for a time. You do not love me, Bernard, and it ie best for our en.gag-e<ment to end. Be happy in your own way, and be very sure I shall be in mine." That was ail, and Bernard's self-esteem was seriously wounded by the epistle. But he consoled himself with the thought that he was new free to woo the charming Grace, and a.t the end of a. month made a foxunal avowal of love to her. I have loved you since w.e met," he sa.id. Glance saw this, and generously set me free." And Grace, who had become very muoh enamoured of her handsome suitor, gave him the answer he craved. Two weeks later Mrs. Barton and Clarice were on their way to Europe, and Bernard was trying to submit to the stern decree of Grace's father. Yes, sir, you can marry my daughter," Mr. Munson had said, if you love her well e-nough to wait three years. I am oppoeed to early marriages. No girl is fit for wedlock before she is twenty-one, and twenty-five is still better." It occurred to Bernard that he was likely to spend the greater part of his youth in the capacity of an "engaged man," and he did not improve in humour thereby. Grace was a.n acknowledged belle, and for a time he was pleased at her success. But there was a secret bitterness underlying his pleas, for he saw little of his betrothed except in society's whirlpool. There would be no change in this state of affairs until their time of probation ended, and, feeling in a false position he concluded to spend the remaining year in travel. When he bade Grace good-bye. he was struck with the fact that she looked much older that she did at the time of their engage- ment. Two years of dissipation had left their mark upon her delicate beauty. Be careful, Grace," he said. Keep some of your roses for me until I claim you. He said nothing of her fidelity; he was only afraid ahe might lose the beauty he wor- shipped. Grace was sorry to lose her lover; she felt desolate for a whole day, and cried herself to sleep the first night. But Bernard wrote her charming letters of travel and she soon forgot her grief. She sent him in return the briefest of notes, for the charming Grace d'd not excel ao a correspondent. But one glance of the porcelain picture he carried conned him for that. A fellow can endure weak, insipid notes," he thought, better than the sight of a plain face across hij» table three times a day." Bernard loitered here and there, and then made his way slowly back. He was in no haste to reach Chicago until a few weeks before the time appointed for his marriage, which was to take place in. early autumn. One morning in July he ramg the bell of the M. unison mansion, and sent up his card to the Ladies. There was a step on the stair, the trail of a garment, and a woman entered, a woman of medium height, with a beautifully rounded figure, and a face of bril- liancy. She approached Bernard and cor- dially extended her hand. "I came down to make your welcome a little less injicspitable, Jttr. Norton," she jsaid. "My aunt and cousin ape, unfortunately, a.t a. concert; they were not aware of your return. You axe quite well? I do not find you so much oha-nged as I expected." He gajsed at the charming speaker in mute wwnder- "I beg pardon—I—I— he began. Her face was a ripple of smiles as she regarded him, waiting for him to proceed. "19 it possible I am so changed that you do not know me ? Have three years aged Clarice Barton so much?" For the first time in his life Bernard Norton Icet his composure. He sank into a chair with an ejaculation of wonder. ''Clarice Barton!" he cried. "Why, it does not seem possible! When did you return?" "pearly two months ago," Miss Barton replied with her well-bred composure as she gracefully seated herself. "My dear mother died in Rome last winter; Europe was un- endurable aiter that, so I came back to America. "But you are so changed Bernard mur- mured, after expressing regret at her Ices. Miss Barton smiled sadly. "Three years change us all," she said; "they leave their mark." "Oh, it is not that!" he hastened to say. "You look not a day older than when I last saw you; but—pardon my boldness—you are wonderfully improved." I am like my mother's people," Clarice answered quietly. They all mature late, and the climate of Italy, where I remained most of the time, was very beneficial to me. I hope to return in the course of a few months." They fell to talking of their troubles, and twelve o'clock struck before Norton thought they had been chatting twenty minutes. At that moment the hall door clanged, and steps came towards them. He arose to his feet. "Impossible!" he said, looking at his watch. "I cannot have been here an hour. Beally—" What he would have said remained un- spoken, for Mrs. Munson and Grace appeared in the doorway. His betrothed was very becomingly dressed, but so faded that she seemed like the ghost of her former self. Three years of society had done their work, The cheek had lost its bloom, the nose was sharpened, and the beautiful eyes lacked lustre. As she stood beside Clarice for a moment she seemed utterly eclipsed by her once plump cousin. The meeting of the lovers was constrained, and Bernard took his departure, promising to call next day, which he did. Grace informed him that M must wait patiently for two more weeks before he could see her j often, as ebe had engagements for every hour.. ¡ "But you and Clarice can console each j1 other. he airl. "It will be pleasant t.ooom. j pare 1Jvt.s of travel." I Bernard wae not s10w to avail hhoeelf of I IhM <pp<u'ttpHty?.aad?<e?tw? bri?h? brief weeks he walked, talked, drove, and chatted with the charming women whom he bad once slighted. What a blind fool be had been! It was Clarice he loved, Clarice he had always loved. She was the boy's fancy, and the man's ideal. It was this cultured, interesting: woman who suited him. and not the faded, frivolous Grace. He grew mad with pain and rage as lie realised his posi- tion. He walked into the parlour one afternoon, where Clarice was playing softly. Do not In me disturb you," he 6aid, as she half rose from the piano. 1 am in a mood to have my savage soul soothed by music. Are the ladies out?" "I think so," answered Clarice. "I have just returned from my walk and have not seen them." She played on softly, her dark, dreamy eyes fixed on space. Bernard looked at her with a brooding passion. Suddenly he crossed over to where she sat. • Clarice," he ctied, "my own Clarice, I oannot b-e longer silent! I love yon-I have always loved you. Years ago you cast me off for a foolish whim, and I tried to con- tent myself by forming other ties. I know now that I have never forgotten yoa. Clarice, take me back agin:" His voice was trembling with emotion; but she stood coldly regarding him, and her voice was very hard as she said: "Mr. Norton, I cannot excuse this behaviour. I loved you once very dearly, but you made me ashamed of that love. and I cast it out. I hare for three years thought of you as my cousin's betrothed, almost her husband, and you insult both her and me by your con- duet. I suppose you know that I am to be married as soon as my term of mourning expires. Allow me to pass." She Tw-ept by him like a queen. The alcove curtains parted and Grace stood before him. I have heard all," she said. Go, and never let me see your face again." She dropped the shining solitaire which she had worn so long into his hand and pointed towards the door. With bowed head he 14t her presence and went down the marble steps for the last time. He had played for each in turn and lost both.
Passing Pleasantries. Mrs. Robinson: But there are two sides to every question. Mr. Robinson (irritably): Very well, ho'.v does it come about that you always see the wrong side? INDEFINITELY POSTPONED. She was an economical, industrious, and ambitious Young wife, and often tried to persuade her husband to give up smoking. One da.y she pointed out to him, in exact figures, how much he spent on tobacco in the course of a. year. "And you would be T?tt?r off," she -id "DMQt?Hy and physicahy, as well as finan- cially, without your pipe." "But all great men have smoked," he urged. "Well," she said, "juist promise me that you'll give up smoking till you're great. I'll be quite satisfied." A CURE FOR INSOMNIA. I "Doctor," said a, fidgety woman, "my hus- band is a sufferer from ;nsomnia, and some nights cannot sleep a-t all. Can you do any- thing for him?" "Certainly, madam," answered the medical man thoughtfully In he first place he must go to bed not later than ten o'clock." He does tha.t." "Very well. Wait until he appears to be in a doze, and then suddenly give him a. shake, and tell him it is time to go down and light the kitchen fire. He'll turn over, give a grunt, and sleep like a log till morning!"
Local Amusemenst I -1 THEATRE ROYAL, CARDIFF. I oUr. Keatord has secured a strong att- tion for Easter week, when Mr. Wentworth Oroke's powerful company will produce Mr. Hal1 Caine's great play, The Christian," which has not been played in Cardiff for some ti-, and should draw large audiences to the Theatre Royal. Mr. Wentworth Croke's representation will afford the playgoing public a, treat, and, though Miss Grace Chalmers is the bright "star," yet every member of the cast colla- borate in giving a vivid representation of Mr. Hall Caine's novel. They have recently appeared in Edinburgh, Liverpool, Man. chester, and Glasgow. Miss Grace Chalmers, who playa Glory Quayle," is an Edinburgh lady, and graduated at the Queen's College. She has won the admiration of large audiences throughout 'the country. She is an actress of exceptional ability, and makes a fascinating heroine. There will be a matinee on Easter Monday. THE EMPIRES. I Cardiff. I A well-selected company will appear at the Cardiff Empire next week. Hermann Melot, a clever French conjuror, tops the bill. He has travelled all over the world, and appears at Cardiff Empire with fresh, laurels won in Australia. He performs some wonderful tricks, and ultimately produces two enor- mous flags with poles, apparently from nowhere. Roeie Lloyd, as vivacious and pleasing as her sister Marie, will aJao appear in her latest successes; other members of the com- pany being the Serenaders, a combinatioOn of clever artistes; Burke, Andrus, and Frisco, in Trafalgar-square," an echo of a Covent Garden Ball; the Allisons, comedy duettists; Conn and Conrad, the bursars with a smile that won't come off"; Grffll and Gray, lawn tennis comedians; the Hardinis, clever instrumentalists; and Lilian Doreen, con- tralto vocalist. I Newport. I Tom Owen, the clever Welsh- comedian, tops the bill at Newport Empire next week, where a variety of talent will be gathered together. The appearance of Unthan, the armless wonder, is sure to be welcome. On one occasion at Sunderland Unthan made a bet with Finney, the celebrated diver and swimmer, that he would swim the latter the length of the public baths. Finney accepted the challenge, the only condition of which was that as Unthan had no arms Finney should be reduced to a. similar state by having his arms tied behind him. It was not until the opposite end of the hath bad been touched and the return to the starting point was made that the professional swim- mET gained a slight lead, and maintained it until the winning post was reached. Josephine Sabel also occupies a prominent place in next week's bill. Partly because she knows how to sing coon" eongs in French she scored a great triumph in Paris. Others of the company are Alma, Abdullah and La Superbe, in El«ctra's Bower," a marvellous electrical display; the Four Skandias, the Majiingos, Ethel Ita. Leslie, Madge Oarlyle, %ild Benson and Geoffreys, in the famous sketch, "Spoofed." PHILHARMONIC-HALL, CARDIFF I A splendid holiday programme has been arranged for the Philharmonic-hall and Stoll's Panopticon, in St. Mary-street, Car- diff. "The Train-wreckers" in twenty scenes, which heads the bill. will be presented by the American Bioscope Company, and the pro- gramme includes a. large number of other interesting items. Pictures of the miners who were rescued at Courrieres after being en- tom:bed for twenty-one daya should prove a great attraction. The ball is open all day. THE LYCEUM, NEWPORT I Mr. Sidney Cooper has been very fortunate to obtain for the Easter holidays so inviting a drama. as "The little Breadwinner," ty J. A. Campbell, whose principal company will play it throughout next week. It is a delightfully human, homely play. Nothing could be more sweetly simple and tender in its pathos than the end of the romantic story, with its Good night, little bread- winner," in the fourth act. There will be matinees at two o'clock on Easter Monday and on Tuesday.

I FOOTBALL NOTES. 1 Season Rapidly Drawing to a Close. INTERESTING CONTEST THIS AFTERNOON. I [By FORWARD.] I The football season is now rapidly draw- ing to a close, and, perhaps, it is quite as well, if we are to have a continuance of the present warm and unsuitable weather. Men cannot show their best form under such con- ditions, and it is unfair to expect them to. During the Eastertide we shall have quite a number of interesting matches. Cardiff will meet the Barbarians this afternoon, and must be careful not to allow that peripa- tetic combination to snatch an unexpected victory, such as happened lat year, when the blue and blacks lost their season's ground record. As usual at holiday times, English teams will make an invasion of Wa?ea, and the probability is that most of them will go back ba,dly beaten. It is in<'On-¡ ceivable that Hartlepo?i will stand chance with Swansea, that Leicester will get within ten points of Newport's score, or that Northampton can hope to beat Llanelly at home. On the Cardiff Arms Park a really magni- ficent struggle ehould be witnessed between Cardiff and the Barbarians. No doubt the former will strive most strenuously to pre- serve their record, while the "Baa-baas," on the other hand, will aspire to smudge it. Writiii. with the information that Brice, Brown, and Northmofce will be absent from the Cardiff pack, one naturally feels a trifle anxious when it is recollected that the visi- tors will field practically an international set of forwards. The trio of Cardiffians meu- tioned are about the best scrimmagers in the home pack, and it is from the front rank that disaster will emanate, if at all. Let the blue and blacks but hold their own in front and the Barbarians' rear division, brilliant though they may be, will certainly be unable to cope effectually with the clever combined play of the Cardiff backs. It is gratifying to know that Percy Bush will be fit, and that the selected halves and three- quarters will all turn out. Winfield has a crocked shoulder, and has notified Bush that he will be unable to play, but an effort will be made to induce him to turn out. In his absence Frank Woods will operate. If they do not score heavily, Cardiff should certainly win.
GOOD FRIDAY MATCHES. [BARBARIANS' EASTER TOUR IN SOUTH WALES. The Penarth v. Barbarians match attracted a huge crowd to the l'enarth enclosure. The weather was beautifully fine, evidently too warm for the piayers. Penarth have always given the visitors a good game, and were the victors in last season's encounter. The Barbarians were strongly represented, but the homesters were minus Shattock and a oouptle of others. Te-.tms:- Penarth: Back, J. C. M. Dyke (captain); three-quarter backs, E. Williams, E. Bryant, W. Jenkins, and E. Goodman; half-backs, Syd Smith and Fred Davies; forwards, H. Hutchings, F. Kirby, E. Hamilton, L. S. H. Thomas, E. Franks, W. Matthews, A. Purnell, and T. Bartlett. Barbarians: Back, G. C. Edwards; three- quarter backs, D. Lambert, D. G. Schulze, J. C. Timmins, and H. F. P. Hearson; half- backs. W. L. Morgan and T. J. JJÜuwreTIs; forwards, A. F. Harding, J. F. Williams, W- S. D. Craven, J. C. Jenkins, J. E. C. Part- ridge, M. R. Dickson, G. V. Kyrke. and G. E. B. Dobbs. Referee: Mr. Tom Williams (Pontypridd). The Barbarians opened play towards the town end, and, getting possession from the ensuing scrum, i-ndulged in a nice bout of passing. The ball was handled by Morgan, Lou wrens, Schulze, and Hearson, but the last- named was finely tackled by Ted William- near the home line. Dyke relieved the pres- sure with a long kick to the centre, where a hard struggle took place between the for- wards. Lambert, getting the ball, made a grand run along the touch-line 011 the lef- side, but was stopped by Dyke. The homr custodian put in a. high kick, and Fred Davies, following up, almost scored. Syd Smith was then penalised for off-side tactics, and the ball was sent back to neutral ground. The Barbarians then wheeled a scrum in good style, and a score appeared certain. Dyke, however, picked up, and leaving the greater part of his jersey in Harding's hands, burst through and eenfc the ball over the visitors' line. The Barbarians again pressed, but eventually the homesters warmed to their work. Their forwards got the bail out on several occasions, on. one of which Syd Smith got away, and, eluding Louwrens and Timmins, passed in the nick of time to Fred Davies, who scored between the posts. Dyke converted. Half-time score: G. T. Pts I Penarth 1 0 5 Barbarians 0 0 0 The game re-opened in brisk fashion, the visitors gaining considerable ground by a passing movement, which was stopped by Bryant, who tackled Schulze near the home line. The ball was dribbled over and Dyke touched down. Kirby and Hamilton then dribbled up to Edwards, who was penalised for holding the ball. Dyke took a shot for goa.1, but the leather went wide. The visi- tors were next away, and Dyke again saved. He was, however, badly fouled and laid out. When play was resumed Hearson made a good effort and erots-kicked to Schulze, who, however, mis-fielded, and Williams, getting Possession, sent the ball ba.ck to the visitors' 25. The ensuing scrum again saw the Bar- barians' three-quarters in motion, and Lam- bert appeared to have no one to beat. He was, however, overtaken by Williams, who showed a fine turn of speed, and saved a certain score. Timmins, a minute later, made an excellent run, bursting through the home defenoe, but his effort was spoilt by Dyke, and the home forwards, getting possession, dribbled up, to the visitors' line, where Edwards just managed to save. Time was then called with Penarth the victors by five points. Final acore: G. T. P'ts. J Penarth 1 0 5 Baroaria.ns 0 0 0 REMARKS. I The game, trom a spectacular point ofview, could not be called one of the best. It was chiefly a battle among the forwards, of whom Penarth were the better in the open, whilst ths Barbarian" more than held their own in the scrums. Had the visitors' backs shown more combination the score might have been reversed. On the whole, however, Penarth are to be congratulated on their win. The one and only try was the outcome of a smart move by Syd Smith, who clean beat the Barbarians' defence before transferring to Davies, who ffuored. J. C. M. Dyke showed his usual good form, and saved continually. He received a round of applause when be snatched up the ball from the feet of half-a- dozen of the visitors' forwards, and, leaving his jersey in the hands of Harding, cleared his line in great style. Edwards, his vis-a-vis. kicked with judgment, and saved 'his side repeatedly. Jenkins and Williams were the pick of the home three-quarter line, where Shattock, who is on the sick-list, was badly missed. Leonard Thomas, F. Kirby, and Hutchins were the best of the Penarth pack, while Harding and J. C. Jenkins were the best stayers of the visitors. PENYGRAIG V. CAERPHILLY. I This, the last but one of Penygraig's Gla- morgan League's fixtures, was played at Penygraig. The home side was poorly repre- sented, the wings, A. Williams and W. Wil- liams. in addition to Ilorry Jones and Gor- don Thomas, being absent. At first the visitors got off, and nearly dropoed a goal, but the home forwards soon retaliated, and E. Evans lost a.n almost cer- tain try by trying to pick up. The home team kept the visitors for some time in their own ground, but the defence was sure, the following up by Caerphilly being especially good. After some loose play D. Davies got over after a srmart run. Half-time score. G. T. P'ts.

The Mallett Cup semi-final between Roath and Mackintosh was played at Whitchurch before a good crowd. Mr. T. England was t be, referee. Both teams fielded their strongest fifteens. The Macks" ptarted, and play sett'ed near the Roath line. A fine rush, headed by Bailey, sent play back to half-way. but a bout i of pasrirg by 'th e" )fa,eke' three-quarters | again saw them attacking strongly, a ininor rpsultin; SnTre good footwoi-k by the Roath forwards put their side out of danger and changed the v<>nne.

From jLbo kick out after a minor Thomas put in a very short kick, a-lad Smith, receiving, promptly dropped a goal. The Roath forwards came away after this. and kept their opponents penned close to their own line. A free kick to the Macks" saw Rodgers find touch with a huge kick in the Roath 25. Nothing further was scored up to half-time. Half-time score. G. T. P'ts. I 1 0 4 It..th 0 0 0 Upon resuming Ronth had slightly the better of matters, but could not break through the strong defence of the "Macks'" back division. From a scrum in their own 25 the Macks'" forwards broke away with a, combined dribble, and an almost certain try was thrown, away through the ball being knocked on. The game went in favour of the Macks" after this, Phiilips scoring behind the posts from a cross punt by Brown. Rodgers converted. From the kick out Jones forced himself over with an unconverted try for Roath. From some loose play close to the Roath line Luke scored far out, and Rodgers, with a fine kick, converted. 4 Final score. G. T. P'ts. I 3fLi,ekintesh 3 0 14 I Roath 0 1 3 PONTYPRIDD V. CANTON. I At Pontypridd, before a good crowd. With a strong sun in their faces Canton started, and within the first couple of minutes Hard- ing, their right centre, intercepting a. pass, cut right through the home quartette, but, instead of running straight, he ran across the field, and was overtaken ten yards from home. For some time the visitors were having the better of play, the home forwards failing to give their halves the ball. When pressing right under the Pontypridd goal- posts, Griffiths came away with a dribble, which was afterwards taken up by Thomas, and the latter scored in the corner. There was no goal. Canton again made incursions into the home half, but Culverwell, picking I up near half-way, ran clean through, and scored the second try for Pontypridd. Half-time score: G. T. P'ts. I .Pontypridd. 0 2 6 Canton 0 0 0 uesuitory play resulted on resuming, and it was only towards the closing stages that some interesting features were witnessed. First Pontypridd came near scoring through M'Gregor, and then Canton went awa.y with a rush from one end of the field to the other, and Syiller alone saved the situation. A moment later Spiller made a splendid open- ing. Though he was twice grabbed by his jersey, which was torn from his back, he struggled through and put John over in the corner. Jones failed at goal. I Final score: G. T. P'ts. Pontypridd 0 3 9 Canton 0 0 0 REMARKS. I flay never reached a high standard, and the main features of the game were the individual efforts contributed on either side. Canton held the upper hand in the forwards, but the home backs nullified this advantage by their smartness in seizing their chances. Spiller and M'Gregor did capital work for Pontypridd, and Harding was the best of the visitors. T. H. VILE'S TEAM V. PILL HARRIERS. On the Pill grounds. The Cardiff men who had been announced to play in Vile's team did not turn up, and for the meet part, the fifteen which turned out was composed of Newport first and second teamers, including G. Boots, J. J. Hodges, H. Wetter, T. H. Vile, Walter Martin and Wallace Watts a.t naif, and Sid. Adams at three-quarter. There wa-s a large attendance. In the first half Vile's team showed much more adaptability in taking advantage of the openings. G. Boots scored two tries and Wallace Watts one. From the second try Harry Rowlands, the full-back, landed a goal. The teams crossed over with eleven points to the credit of Vile's team. The second half was very fast, and was contested with great stubbornness. Rowlands, the full-back on Vile's side, was off during the greater part of this half, crocked. Buck- ley scored a. wide try for Pill, but failed to I raise the ball with the place-kick. Soon after Walter Martin scored for the visitors, but no goal ensued. Final score: G. T. P'ts. I T. H.

Bayliss scored, the ball having been rushed over. After this Bridgend played uP, and Griffiths equalised with an elsy try from a long kick by -Aatthewis. Pretty passing between Jenkins and the Brothers Hopkins resulted in Gwilym Hopkins scoring. Edwards con- verted. Half-time score. G. T. P'ts.

I Bridgend 1 4 17 Bryncethia 0 13 NEATH V. CARMARTHEN. I At Neath, neither &ide putting a representa- tive fifteen on the field. The game was, how- over. witnessed by a fairly good crowd. The Neath men at an early stage of the game showed marked superiority, and after succesive attacks Tom Stephens rushed over with a, nice try, which R. Davies converted. Within a couple of minutes another try fell to Neath, Sam Abraham sprinting over after effective passing. The kick failed. The Neath attack was as hot as mustard, and time after time they would have got over had it not been for the excellent defence of Willie Thomas, who, for a youngster, showed sur- prising form. At length, however, fine pass- j ing by the home backs resulted in Harry Merriman romp-ing over with a try which I was not majorised. Half-time score. G. T. P'ts. I Neath. i 2 ii I Carmarthen 0 0 0 Tlle visitors waged an equal fight for the first ten minutes of the second half, and then Neath rushed play into their ground. Tom Jones had a, nice chance of opening the game out, but he elected to kick, and the ball missed the ma.rk, a. minor resulting. A for- ward rush culminated in W. Jones adding another try, which remained unmajorised. Neath initiated attack after attack, and Tom Stephens was the next to score an uncon- verted try. Harry Merriman added another Vy after pretty passing. The kick failed. Final score: G. T. P't-s. I Neath 1 5 20 Carmarthen 0 0 0 ABERAVON V. DANYGRAIG. I PLAYER ORDERED OFF. ?- At Aberavon.

Arnold kicked off for Danygraig, and Aber avon carried play into the visitors' quarters and forced a minor. Aberavon opened out well. and W. Harris was held up right on the visitors' line. Danygraig relieved, but the red and blacks again attacked strongly, and Tom Thomas, from a. cross-kick by Harris, got nicely away and transferred to Willie Thomas, who scored in the corner. Tom Thomas failed to convert. Resuming, the Danygraig forwards put in some warm rushes, and the backs opened out splendidly, but the homesters defended well. Half-time score:— G. T. Pts. Aberavon 0 1 3 Danygraig. 0 0 0 Madden re-started for Aberavon, but Dany- graig replied well, and play settled in mid- field, where hard scrimmaging ensued. The play became very vigorous, and a eoufil-i ensued, R. Lewis, Da-nygraig, being ordered off. Danygraig now became very aggressive, and kept up a warm attack, and Tommy Arnold, fecuring in the 'Avon 25, dropped a splendid goal for the visitors. Danygraig I oontinued to attack, but could not pierce the home defence, and time was called. Final score;- G. T. Pts. I Danygraig 1 0 4 Abera.Yuu. 0 1 3 I REMARKS. It was a very fast and vigorous game, in I which the visitors seemed determined to wipe out the one and only defeat which they have suffered this season-at Aberavon. Danygr,: j. were mUOh, the better team. Their forwards played a good g-time, and the hacks passed out well. For Aberavon, Tim Madden, Bevau, ¡ and Vicltery did well forward. Wiliie Harris, Bala. Jones, Tom Thomas, and Arthur l James were the best of the backs. For Daily-1 graig Toft played well at three-quarter, and G. Williams and Boll in the forwards. I CAKDIFF SHOPPERS V.

Lewis (Whartons), Ashton, Nash (Cardiff Wednesdays), Jenkins (Post-office), Anthony (Hayes), and Dent (Ivy). Cardiff started with a strong sun against them, and set up a persistent attack through fine kicking by their backs. After twenty minutes' play Haydn Jones made an open- ing, and a, fine passing bout ended in Charlie Beatt scoring in the corner. Biibr failed to goal. Swansea then woke up and attacked with vigour. D. Williams (Dunvant) at inside half played well, but he found the Cardiff defence impregnable. The second half was fought out at a hot pace, which told its tale on both paoks. The game was mostly confined to the forwards, the Cardiff side nursing the touch-line to advantage, whilst the Swansea pack, headed by Hay ward, made strenuous efforts to equalise. This they failed to do, and the Cardiffians were attacking when the final whistle blew. At the conclusion of the game the referee (Mr. E. Taylor, Cardiff) was subjected to a hostile demonstration by the junior section of the spectators, who during the progress of the game encroached on the field of play to such an extent that he had to stop the game on several occasions. 4 Final score.

Rees. the outside half, whose place was taken by Llew. Thomas. The visitors played two wing forwards to spoil the Llanelly passing. The game was thus made more close than it would otherwise have been. The home for- wards. too. were not seen at their best. How- ever, the scarlets had all the better of the play, D. M. Davies and Williams each scoring twice. Final score: G. T. P'fs. Llanelly 1 3 14 Belfast Collegiatis 0 1 3 ABERAVON RESERVES AND R. AND S.B. I RAILWAY SERVANTS. This match (in aid of the Railway Ser- vants' Widows and Orphans' Fund) was played on the Aberavon Football Ground in splendid weather. The railwaymen had the better of the opening exchanges, but the Reserves soon gained their opponents' terri- tory, and after some good play by Fred Jen- kins, Charlie Sutton, and Ivor Rees, the latter scored for the Reserves, Rees failing to convert. The Reserves coutinned to attack, hut nothing further was scored up to half-time. Resuming, Aberavon Reserves immediately forced play, but the railwaymen defended well. Towards the close the red and blacks completely beat the defence, and tries were added by J. Sutton, C. Lloyd, and Thomp- son, D. Harris converting two of them. Final score: G. T. P'te.

However, he managed later on to add another try The Merthyr men did not seem to -be overdoing themselves, in view of their stiff match against Belfast Col- legians to-day (Saturday). othing was scored on either side in the second half.

In the opening half Cindor- ford showed great superiority, scoring tries through Smith (two) and Rhodes, the place kicks failing. Interval :-Cinderford, three tries; Parkhouse, nil. Re-starting, the home three-quarters were again &et in motion, and further tries were scored by Niblett, Wil- stead, and Smith, Rhodes goaling one. Fina.I :-Cinderford, one goal and five tries; Park House, nil. SWANSEA PRESS V. THE EMPIRE STAFF. I Thc.so teams met at Rugby football on the Recreation Ground, Swansea. Neither team play regularly, and were, therefore, not expected to be in the best of fettle. The first try was scored in the first half by Trevor Wignall, a local critic of the game, who appeared to put the rest of the backs on his side to shame in the attempt to justify his weekly column of advice. He also added an object-lesson demolishing the art of goal kicking, which was successful. For such a. combination of theory and practice the press had much to be thankful, and the power of the press at the moment transcended that of the Empire itself. In the second half Williams, however, for the prestige and dignity of the Empire, scored a try, which he converted, and at the close the result was an equal score of a converted goal each, the press just maintaining its position by the side of the Empire in the path of pro- gress.

ASSOCIATION. I MAINDEE ALBIONS (NEWPORT) V. REST OF I LEAGUE. The Maindee Albions, champions of the New- port and District League (second division), met a representative team of the rest of the league on Lysaght's Ground. The Albions, who did most of the pressing and excelled '11 combination, scored twice through Gibert, who found the net from a scramble, and George Jones, who after a clever run put in a neat shot which beat the leaguers' cus- todian. The Rest of the League scored only once, through Wallace (Junior Liberals). Final score: Goals.. Maindee Albions 2 Rest of League 1 TREHARRIS V. LLANBRADAOH. This match was played before a lar<?e gathering at Treharris. The kick-off was taken by Alderman Morrell (the mayor of Merthyr), and was quickly followed up by Llanbradach, who became aggressive. From a scramblo Llanbradach scored, but after this they were held within their own 25, and had to concede a corner. Shortly after this play was stopped owing to a rather serious injury to Timmins. He being unable to return, Treharris continued to play with only ten men. Half-time Foore. Goa?s. I TrenarriR .t1S'1 Lla,nbradach 1 Upon resuming Llanbradach again forced matters, and Downs was repeatedly called upon to save. Treharris were now doing badly, and, to make matters worse, Powell left the field through an injury to his foot. This, however, put new vigour into the nine remaining players, and from now to the eud they kept up a hot attack on the Llanbra- soal. Final score. Goals. I Treharris 1 Llanbradach 1 NEWPORT V. NEWPORT AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. On the Newport Club s enclosure, before a large attendance. The wa-rm weather had the effect of slacIwning the play down in the eany stages.

For the League Harry Jones (Ciyffard Villa) a.nd Lane (St. Andrew's) s-cored, while New- port's goal was scored by Groves. BARRY DISTRICT V. BARRY DOCK ALBIONS. A good crowd witnessed a plelnt game at the But-trills. The Albions;, who are finalists fur the South Wales Junior Cup, were not up to their usual form, both tea:n-, in fact, playing substitutes. In the first half Barry District obtained two goals, but nothing further was registered, the final score being :-Barry District, 2 goals: Barry Dock Albions, nil. Mr. W. H.
