IE TOM PAYNE, The World-Famous Musician-Athlete. WINNER OF THE LONDON TO BRIGHTON WALK, 1919. Time 8 hrs. 38 min. 23i sec. Amateur-Champ ion Loag-Distance Pedestrian. Holder of the World's Won-Stop Record. The only man to accomplish the wonderful feat of Walking the incredible distance of 127 miles and 543 yards in 24 hours, without stopping for a single moment. THOMAS PAYNE, The World's Non-Stop Record Holder, writes: "I wish to testify to the excellent benefits I have received from the use of Phosferine. To keep up to form as a Long Distance Champion Pedestrian I am obliged to lead the life strenuous and tram hard, which entails • great physical effort. Also to keep up to first-class standard as a Yiolinist, I must practise many hours every day, which draws greatly on the nerve reserves (to say nothing of the physical). Thanks to Phosferine I am able to retain my fitness for my Athletics and my Music." This renowned athlete frankly acknowledges that it is JPhosferine, and Phosferine alone, that provides him with the reserve of nerve and pCiysical force to accomplish his mar- vellons feats of pedestrianism. He is only one of hundreds of men and women who have won honour and renown in the world of athletics, who use Phosferine regularly so as to ■ be certain of keeping II lit."

DISBANDING THE WOMEN'S I ARMIES. INSTANCES OF NOBLE SERVICE. By the end of the year three of the greatest services of women war workers- Women's Royal Air Force, Women's Royal Naval Service, and the Women's Land Army-will have been wound up. Demobilisation in all three has been going on since the armistice, and the final disbandment will soon take place. Some of the women war workers have won fame for their splendid devotion to the national cause, a.nd tho following in. stances of how the distinguished service bar has been won deserve to be men- tioned:- Peggy Fisher.-A' cowman who was about to chain up a bull which was loose in the stall was knocked down by the ani- mal, which promptly proceeded to gore him. Peggy Fisher rushed in, and, jump- ing the barrier, attacked the bull by kicking his noeo. The bull backed and the man was .able to get out. But for Fisher's pluck he would have been seri- ously injured and probably killed. Lily Harrison when a new recruit and quite unused to horses rescued a young pony that was being viciously attacked and bitten by a hunter. The foreman did not think it was safe to go near, but Harrison managed to separate the ani- mals. F. E. Hanley.—A frightened cow was stranded on a small piece of dry land in the middle of a swift and wide river, un- able to reach either bank on account of the soft mud surrounding her. Henley swam across the river, roped the cow 111 mid stream, and drove it before her to the bank. Jessie Bar saved a number of pigs from drowning. They had run on to a pond which was covered with a thin layer of ioe, and they all went into the water, bar climbed a tree overhanging the pond, and, supporting herself from one of the boughs, pulled the pigs out by their tails. K. Botting rescued a fellow land girl who was being attacked by a boar. At great personal risk she held the boar down with her pitchfork while the other girl escaped.
REMARKABLE COUNTY I SCHOOL RECORD. BETHESDA SUCCESSES. I The traditional Welsh zeal for educa- tion has seldom been more strikingly il- lustrated than in this year's record ot the Bethesda. County School. Serving a locality among the hardest hit by thf3 war of any in Wales, the attendance beats all previous records. Originally built to accommodate 100 pupils its roll now num- bers 218. In has this year eecured 52 Cen- tral Welsh Board Certificates-or 25 per cent of the total number of pupils on the roU. p Of the five county exhibitions of Y,20 for three years at any college awarded by the County Education Authority, Bethesda has this year secured three. It had in previous yeara won two out of the five awarded. This year's scholarship winners are Morfudd Hushes, Qoth Hall, thjrd girl in the county; Owen Glynn Williams, Neuadd Wen, first boy in the county; Hughie J. Owen, Tregarth, se- cond boy in the county. Three others stood high in the list, viz.: Gweirydd Ellis, Carneddi. third boy in the county; R. D. Pritchard, Penybryn, fourth boy in the county; Menai Jones, Llandegai, eighth girl in the county. The school thus secures for the boys the first four places in the whole county-a unique record. There were 27 pupils from the school at the North Wales University College, Ban- gor, last session.

EX-SERVICE STUDENTS' PROTEST- GOVERNMENT DELAY IN PAYING I GRANTS. The ex-service students at the Univer- sity College of North Wales, Bangor, yes- terday sent to Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P. for the Welsh University, the following protest:— "We all returned to the University or took up oourscs here, relying on the pmm ? the Government to provide fiTm,n2 aid towards fees and mainten- ance. Many of us entered College as long ago as last January. the others had entered at various times since then. We have all made ap- pfimtion on the proper forms for Go- vernment aid. Up to the present none ol us have received these grants. A few have received notification of the award of grants, but no money has actually been received except small sums, ranging from £10 to £ 25, as in- terim grants. We would point out that most of us resumed, or took up our courses here on the strength of the Go- vernment's promise, and if the payment of the grants is delayed much longer we shaJl have to leave the College. We are given to understand, and our information wo believe is reliable, that the grants have already been paid to ex-service students at Aberystwyth, Cardiff, Liverpool, Oxford, Cambridge, and other Universities. The delay in the awarding and payment of grants to Bangor University students almost con- stitutes a breach of the solemn promises made by the Government to ex-service men, and we respectfully request that you will use your influence to see that the responsible authorities, namely, the Board of Education, the Board of Agri- culture, and Interim Forestry Commis- sion, take immediate steps to doat with the applications received, and to hasten the payment of grants already award- ed."

The guests subsequently adjourned to the Mansion House for luncheon, where the Prime Minister, who was present, in the oourse of a speech, after a tribute to Lord Allenby's war services, referred to the railway strike, which he declared had proved that the nation intended to be master in its own house.

Mr J. Davies Wil- liams at the meeting of the Urban Coun- cil on Tuesday opposed this arrangement on the ground that it did not result in economy, and he instanced a chapel with eight lights which was attended by a con- giegation who if they had remained at home would have been burning 21 lights between them. By go:ng to that chapel they saved a large quantity of gas which would have been expended had they sctayed at home. The Chair- man If the w hole of the con- gregation attended that chapel, they are more regular than most congregations (laughter).—Mr J. Davies Williams: I am certain all the congregation were present that night, and I am equa-lly certain that had they been at home they would have burnt 21 lights. -ilfr G. Roberts Griffiths pointed out that the Fuel Overseer was acting on the instructions of his superiors. —Mr L. D. Jones stated that at one chapel last Sunday where the service stalled at 5 p.;n the lights were put on the minutes later.—Mr R. S.

'Me it rates' Clerk (Mr Vincent): Do you intend paying aDytWjig, The Defendant No, it is not my child. The Magistrates' Clerk: Are you going to spend the rest of your life in jail?— Yes, until I go to my grave. The Defendant's Mother: It is only a case of blackmail. My boy has been in [ the trenches three years. The Bench discussed the matter with the defendant in their private room. "Cpon their return to court., the Chairman teld him he must go to) prison for a month. The arrears under the order would not, however, accrue while he was in prison. URBAN COUNCIL. I I The monthly meeting of the Cxiuncil was held on 'i\:o.sday night. The Chair- man (Mr T. J. Owen) presided, and the other members present were Messrs Rd. Thomas, J. McMiahan, L. D. Jones, J.

Mr Twist; Then our pretest falls to the ground The Fuel Overseer (Mr T. P.
