Gentlemen,-I wish to tender mv heart-felt thanks to you for the great and lasting good that I have derived from taking GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS, and I write this letter, as it might be of some benefit to others suffering as I was some years ago. I willingly agree for you to verify my statements, and I enclose the names and addresses of the Doctors I was under. In 1890 my health began to decline, I had no appetite for my meals, and I suffered from weak- ness. I also had a fear of that dreadful disease, Consumption. Getting worse, I consulted a Doctor, and was under his treatment about six weeks, but I was no better. I then took certain patent medicines, I should say about 14 bottles, but I seemed to be getting worse and worse. All work was torture to r -a. I tried another Doctor, who told me that I was suffering from Nervous Debility and Indiges.ion, and had completely run down. I could not sleep at night for pains in my chest, near the heart, and a swelling in the throat almost suffocated me. When sleep did come it was only of short duration. I visited a Throat Hospital, and I went there regularly twice a week for upwards of nine months, but I found I was getting worse. I then consulted another Doctor, who advised me to take a good tonic for six months. After having spent over £ 20 in med- cine, &c., I started taking GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS. When I had taken two bottles I found I was slightly better, and after I had taken the fourth bottle the pain in my chest and throat seemed less, and I realised I was getting better in health and spirits. After taking a course of GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS I could eat and enjoy my food, and my sleep at night refreshed me. My strength returned, and life was again a pleasure to me. In all, I took about eleven 4s 6d bottles of GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS, and I was cured. Since then I have had perfect health, my complaints have not troubled me, and during the last eight years I havenotloqt a single day's work through illness, as my Employers can testify, thus proving that it is a Genuine Cure. GWILYM EVANS' QUININE BITTERS fought the disease itself. I sincerely hope that this Testimonial will meet the eyes of those who may be suffering like I was, and I have great pleasure in allowing you to publish the same. Yours sincerely, J. H. SAUNDERS.

Evans (304). -Mr Bell did not wish to press the charge, but the Bench, who said this pilfering of gardens was on the increase, sentenced Burke to fourteen days' imprisonment with hard labour.

ANOTHER TRADE UNION OBSTRUCTION CASE, Bernard Stubbing Kersey, of 28, Sydenham- street, Barry Docks, an organiser of the Sailors and Firemen's Union, was charged with obstruct- ing the highway in Sydenham-street, Barry Docks, on the 20th ultimo. P.C. Beedles said that at 10.35 on the morning in question he saw the defendant in Sydenham-street standing on a chair addressing a crowd, and till eleven o'clock the street was blocked and an obstruction caused. Defendant: What were these men doing ?— Listening to you. P.C. Phillips gave corroborative evidence. Defendant, who said be had been in the district ten months, had addressed a crowd daily at this j spot. He Was speaking to the men on The Betterment of their Conditions of Life," on the j Salvation Army principle, telling them to keep away from the drink, and was, therefore, assisting 1 the police. The Bench fined defendant 10s, and said how- ever good his addresses were he must not obstruct the highway. RESPONSIBILITY OF BAIL. On the 22nd ultimo Michael Clay, of Cadoxton, became bail in the sum of P,5 for the appearance i at the Police-court on the following day of Michael Burke on a charge of stealing flowers.

THE VACANT LIVING OF CADOXTON-BARRY. THE NEW RECTOR MUST BE A WELSH SPEAKING CLERGYMAN. Some misunderstanding exists (says the "Western Mail) as to the right of next presentation in the case of the living of Cadoxton. juxta. Barry, rendered vacant by the death of the Rev Ebenezer Morris, B.A. As one of the trustees, Mrs Jenner, of Wenvoe Castle, claims the right belongs to her, and it is understood that she is prepared to nominate the Rev G. H. Jenner, M.A., rector of Wenvoe, to the vacancy. It is stated that Mrs Jenner has communicated to this effect with the Bishop of Llandaff. What Mr Jenner's views are is not exaotly known, but should he accept the nomination difficulties might arise in the way of his presentation to the living. It is well known that the parish is bilingual, and requires, there. fore, the services of a Welsh-speaking incumbent, a qualification, so it is stated, which Mr Jenner does not possess. Indeed, report has it that the Bishop of Llandaff, acting in accordance with a long-established rule of his, has already intimated to Mrs Jenner that he could not confirm her nomination by reason of the language difficulty.
BARRY DOCK MAN SENT TO PRISON FOR THEFT. John Skyrme, a labourer, Barry Docks, was on Saturday last, at Cardiff Police-court, sentenced to a month's imprisonment with hard labour for the theft of a lady's hand-bag. It belonged to Mrs Rose Jenkins, and eontaifned Al in gold, with small change and Kruger coins, a watch, &c., to the value of 94. She had been to South- ampton on Wednesday, and, feeling tired when she got to the Cardiff Riverside Station, en rmte to Barry, put the bag on a seat beside her, and forgot it until she got into the train, but it was then in motion. At Cogan she informed the guard, Mr J. Rossiter, and he watched the passengers, with the result that Skyrme was arrested at Cadoxton. while making off with the bag.
"A YDYW'R EISTEDDFOD YN WERTH El CHYNALr In the July number oi the Welsh national magazine, Y Geninen," appears an outspoken and trenchant article on the subject of Is the National Eisteddfod Worth the Cost of Mainte- nance?" from the pen of the Rev J. Puleston Jones, M.A., whose opinion is strongly in the negative, and he pleads for an early reformation. In the course of his article, Mr Jones states Nid cablu urddas, pa fodd bynnag, ydyw'r amcan wrth gydnabod fod y fath drael a'r fath lafur yn fyr o ateb y diben yr ymgymerir a hwynt er ei fwyn,—nid deffro aniddigrwydd at y pethau sydd, ond cynhyrfu am ddiwygiad buan. Os aeth yr Eisteddfod, er gwaethaf ei charedigion, yn beth na fwriadwyd iddi fod, ac os collodd hi trwy hynny'r ddawn i fod y peth a ddylasai, gadewch iddi, a chodweh rywbeth arall yn ei lie. Na, ni wnawn ni mo hynny chwaith,-ni wnawn mo hono, am y rheswm syml ei bod hi 'n rhy dda i adael iddi, ac yn rhy fyw i beidio gwneud defnydd o honi. Ond cyn y ceir diwygiad a gyfyd y sefydliad i fuddioldeb boddhaol, rhaid aildrefnu'r Eisteddfod o'r b6n. Y mae ei henw hi 'n tynnu pobl ynghyd mewn ffordd na allai dim arall. A'r ymholiad ydyw, Beth a wnawn ni fel cenedl i gael ein gwyl flynyddol yn un werth ei ebadw ? Gwelais, flynyddoedd yn ol, ysgrif ar yr Eisteddfod, nid wyf yn coflo gan bwy, a ddechreuai trwy ddywedyd mai tair awdurdod oedd yn trin y sefydliad, yr Orsedd, Cymdeithas yr Eisteddfod, a'r Pwyllgor Lleol. Dvna gymaint ag wyf yn ei gofio o'r ysgrif. Nis gwn a oes un ameer gydym- gynghori rhwng y cylchoedd hyn. Nid llawer, mi dybygaf. Pa un bynnag am hynny, gwyr pawb mai gan un o'r tri (pwyllgor y lie) y mae'r awdurdod ymarferol: hwnnw sy'n parotoi taflen y testynau a thaflen y cvfarfodydd. Beth yw'r canlyniad? Onid hyn—trefnu'r Eisteddfod o'i dechreu i'w diwedd yn y modd y bydd hi debycaf o dalu i bobl y lie sy'n ei chroesawu ? Nid beio yr ydys, ond dweud mai fel hyn y mae. Y mae'n iawn i'r dynion a osodir ar y pwyllgorau hyn wneud eu goreu dros ei tref er mwyn hynny yr etholwyd hwy: ac o'u safle hwy, nid oes fai arnynt gadw hynny mewn golwg. Ond y cwestiwn yw, Ai gosod budd y lie y bo'r Eistedd- fod ynddo yn flaenaf, a gwaith yr Eisteddfod yn ail, ydyw'r ffordd i godi'r Eisteddfod i effeithiol- rwydd? Swm y cwbl, ynte, ydyw, fod tua saith awr yn y dydd, o ddyddiau'r Eisteddfod, yn myn'd at y pethau a'i gwnant hi 'n boblogaidd, a rhyw awr neu awr a hanner yn y dydd at y pethau a'i gwnant hi 'n fuddiol. A ydyw cyfarfod fel yna yn werth y drael o'i gynnal ? Dyna'r fel y trinir taflen yr Eisteddfod. Er gwaethaf y driniaeth, y mae'r Eisteddfod yn tial i dynnu allan rai o ddoniau disgleiriaf y genedl. Nid gwiw gwadu nad oes llawer mwy wedi ei ysgrifennu o herwydd bod yr Eisteddfod na phe buasem hebddi. Ond, atolwg, bath a wna'r Eisteddfod a'r traethodau a'r caniadau, wedi eu cael? Eu cyhoeddi gyda'u gilydd, y gwych a'r gwael, blith draplith a dyna, fel rheol, y cwbl a wneir. Y mae, bid siwr, ambell i lyfr gwych wedi dyfod allan ar wahan, ami i bryddest, ac ami i awdl hefyd ond ychydig iawn mewn cymhariaeth i'r defnyddiau gwych a gladdwyd, i bob pwrpas ymarferol, ym mhentwr blynyddol cynyrchion yr Eisteddfod. Tybed, mewn difrif, fod yr un eisteddfod leol, na'r un cyfarfod llenyddol mewn gwlad, yn ol ei faint, yn gwneuthur llai o wasanaeth na'r Eisteddfod fawr Y mae weithian dros gant oed. Yng nghorff y ganrif hi a droes ddigon o arian, er cofio a chyfrif y troion y bu hi 'n golled ariannol, hi a droes ddigon o arian, er hynny, i weddnewid Ilenydd- iaeth Cymru trwyddi draw Arwydd obeithiol yw, fod yr Eisteddfod, hitbau, yn yr ugain mlynedd diweddaf,—wel, er pan ddechreu- wyd cyhoeddi ei chynyrchion,-wedi troi o ddifrif ar wella. Iddi bi, debyg, yr ydym i ddiolch am lyfrau y Proffeswr Lloyd ar Hanes Cymru, ac "Hanes Llenyddiaeth Gymreig" Ashton. Yn ddiweddarach fyth y mae hi wedi troi ei sylw at len gwerin. Eto, er yr argoelion yma o doriad gwawr, bydd dyled lenyddol y ganrif ddiweddaf yn drymach lawer i bersonau, a chymdeithasau bychain, nag i'r sefydliad a ddylasai fod ar y blaen. Yn y ganrif newydd yr ydys yn disgwyl petbau pur fawr oddiwrth gymdeithas gradd- edigion PrifyBgol Cymru ond bydd digon o waith i'r Ei&teddfod hefyd, ond iddi hi adnabod ei braint ac ymaflyd ynddi. Pa beth ydyw'r feddyginiaeth t Yn flaenaf dim, cael y brif awdurdod o law y pwyllgor Ileol, a'i rhoddi i ryw bwyllgor sefydlog. Fe ddisgynai'r gwaith yn naturiol, naill ai i Gymdeithas yr Eisteddfod, neu i'r Orsedd, nen ynte i gyfnniad 1 o'r ddwy. Eithr i bwy bynnag yr ymddiriedir y gwaith o ddiwygio'r Eisteddfod, debyg y bydd raid cael cydweithrediad y ddau allu hyn,-yr Orsedd a Chymdeithas yr Eistedd- fod,-i rhoddi'r ymddiried a phe gwnai y ddau allu hyn a'u gilydci na chai umhyw dref mo'r Eisteddfod Genedlaethol ar ol hyn a hyn o i flynyddoedd, na fyddai foddlon i roi Ilawer mwy o law yn nhrefniadau'r wyl i ryw gorff sefydlog nag a roddir yn awr, byddai'r diwygiad wedi dechreu. Un ddadl a altai dueddu'r pwyllgor lleol i dderbyn amod fel yma ydyw, y ceid felly gadw elw'r naill flwyddyn i gyfarfod a cholled un arall, fel y bo i'r blynyddoedd breision borthi rbywfaint ar y blynyddoedd culion. Wrth beidio a bod mwy yn gyfarfod poblogaidd i rai'n chwennych difyrwcb, hi gynyddai'n ddir- fawr yn ei phoblogrwydd gyda'r doabarth sy'n caru addysg er ei mwyn ei hunan ac fe dalai y rheiny am eu lie yr un fath a'r lleill. Doi'r Eisteddfod Genedlaetbol yn gynhullfa i lenorion a cherddorion ac ysgolheigion o bob gradd, lie y mae llawer o honynt, ar hyn o bryd, yn ddibris o honi neu yn esgeulus o ddyfod iddi. Ond rhaid i'r Eisteddfod, yn y lIe nesaf, foddloni am flynydd- oedd i fod yn gymbarol dlawd ac amhoblogaidd, onid e ni ddiwygir byth mo honi. Yn ddiweddaf, a chyn bwysiced a dim a enwyd, dylid dilyn awgrym y Proffeswr Rhys—rhoddi llawer mwy o le i'r cymdeithasau sy'a ymgynnull yng nghysgod yr Eisteddfod. O'm rhan i, mi rown y bore'n groew iddynb hwy, a gadael rhyw awr o naw dan ddeg, fel y gwneir yrwan, i seremoniau'r Orsedd. Byddai haner awr wedi un. neu ddau, yn eithaf digon buan i ddechreu'r prif gyfarfod a gellid ei ddibennu, heb dynnu o hono ddim gwir werthfawr, rhwng pedwar a phump. Wedi blynyddoedd o ymdrech a thlodi cymariaethol byddai gan yr Eisteddfod yn ei gwedd newydd arian i'w troi heibio. Hi allai godi yn ei gwobrau ac yn ei cbyflogau. Hi allai gyhoeddi cynyrchion goreu'r cystadlu blynyddol mewn ffurf y prynid hwy gan y 11ie.ws, ar y naill law, ac, ar y Haw arall, gyhoeddi llyfrau at wasanaeth efrydwyr, llyfrau na cheid byth elw o'u cyhoeddi mewn un pes, ac na chyhoeddid mo honynfc byth trwy antur pereonol. Maddeued caredigion yr Eisteddfod, ym mysg y rhai y dymunwn innau fy nghyfrif, i mi am ysgrifennu mor naillochrog. Eisiau oedd arnaf alw sylw at ddiwygiadau a farnwn i yn llwyr angenrheidiol. Y mae'n fwy na thebyg i mi wneuthur ami i gamgymeriad, yn codi'n bennaf o'm hanghynefindra yn hanes y sefydliad eithr credu yr wyf fod llawer yr un farn a mi am y llwybr y rhaid ei gymeryd i gael pethau i'w lie.

LEAPT OUT OF BED. ST. ATHAN'S PLATELAYER'S ADVENTURE. I Some time since a strange story reached the ears of a reporter of the Cardiff Times, who took an early opportunity of visiting the scene of the occurrence to ascertain the actual facts. In the secluded village of St. Athans, near Cowbridge, and some fifteen miles from Cardiff, the reporter came across the hero of the rumour, a Mr L. H. Willmot, platelayer on the Taff Vale Railway, who related to him the following interesting particulars :— "Some time ago," commenced Mr Willmot, "I was cured by Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people of a serious complaint which had given me a great deal of pain and which for a time quite prostrated me. The fact that I followed outdoor employment, and am consequently subject to all changes of climate, I suppose, accounts for it. At 7n MR. L. H. WILLMOT. (From a photo by Barry Dock Studios. J any rate, I had a very severe attack of sciati«a which lasted altogether for about three months. It took me first in the left hip, and then it travelled down to the calf of my leg. It was so severe at one time that I could not bend down and put on my boots and stockings, for although the pain was in my left leg, it seemed to effect my back as well, so that I could not make the slighest effort to bend. In fact. I felt as if I was half paralysed. The pain would sometimes come on so suddenly, and was so excruciating, that I would leap out of bed in the middle of the night, and I had to have my leg rubbed with the greatest vigour, so as to bring me a little temporary relief. I became so ill at last that I was compelled to give up work altogether, and for three weeks I was confined to my bed. I was so bad at that time that I could not turn in bed without assistance, and when I did get up it took me two whole hours in which to dress myself." Oh, yes, I tried several things in order to get rid of it. I tried several kinds of oils which were recommended to me by my friends, and rubbed them all well into the limb, but they did me no good whatever. I also took doctors' medicine, but that only gave me a little temporary relief. I was then advised to go under treatment by an electric battery, and I was going to give that a trial, when one day I saw in one of the papers an advertise- ment of a fireman who had suffered in the same way as I was suffering, and who had been cured by Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people. The case was so much like my own that I then and there determined to try them as well, to see what they would do for me. I consequently got a box of Dr Williams' pink pills, and to my surprise and joy before I was half through with the first box I experienced great relief. The improvement was so marked that I continued to take the pills. I took three boxes of them altogether, and they completely cured me after everything else had failed, and I have practically had no trouble with it from that time. It is true that some time afterwards, with the change in the weather, I thought I felt a twinge of it, and I at once got another box of Dr Williams' pink pills. I don't know whether I did have a touch of my old complaint or whether I was only scared, but a few doses of Dr Williams' pink pills which I took put me all right, and I have not had a trace of it since. At the same time I keep a box by me in case of another attack, but up to now it has not come. It is now months ago since I had the last scare I mentioned to you, for throughout this past winter I have not had any sign of it coming on, so I can safely regard my cure as a thorough permanent one. I am very pleased to give this testimonial for publication, and I hope that anyone who sees the account of my case will do the same as I did, and give Dr Williams' pink pills a trial, for they are certainly the best thing I ha.ve bad for the very painful complaint that I suffered from."
