Have You Sharp Pains in the Back ? Are You Sleepless and Irritable ? Kidney Trouble is Serious. That stab-like pain in the back or that dull ache comes from diseased kidneys They lie just in the small of the back. It is a warning that something is wrong, and it is a serious warning. If every cold or chill affects the back, depend upon it your kidneys' need prompt attention. If the first symptoms be neglected, soon more serious ones will follow. There will come a disturbance of the kidney secretions gravel will appear; there will be rheumatism, neuralgia, sleeplessness, weak, fluttering heart, a dull, heavy, worn-out feeling, and finally, those dread diseases—Bright's Disease or Diabetes. If the kidneys filter the blood pro- perly-that is, filter out all its waste and poisonous products-you can be well and strong. You cannot be well otherwise. There is no kidney helper so good as Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, the great Quaker Kidney Medicine. They have been used for 70 years, and are made of wholesome and safe roots and herbs, as they were originally made by the Quakers. They have just the toning, healing effect the kidneys require. They act only on the kidneys and bladder, and in their gentle way gradually aid the kidneys to properly flush off all the waste impurities of the body. Their effect is so sure and certain that they are now being used by doctors, who recommend them in their serious cases. They cannot injure the youngest child or the weakest invalid. The Quakers always used an oak leaf on the this, so that people might be sure to get the genuine. Look for this leaf. I If your trouble is kidney disease, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills will cure it, for they are made for that purpose only.

BARRY FREE CHURCH COUNCIL AND PASSIVE RESISTANCE. PUBLIC DEMONSTRATION TO BE HELD. FORMATION OF A RESISTANCE LEAGUE DECIDED UPON. The Barry Free Church Council have taken the matter of passive resistance up very keenly, and already several meetings in connection with the movement have been held. An adjourned meeting of the Free Church Council was held at Tabernacle Welsh Cangregational Chapel, Holton- road. Barry Docks, on Friday evening last, under the chairmanship of the Rev Aaron Davies, D. D. (president). Rev W. Ingli James, Barry, opened the meeting with prayer. The Secretary (Rev J. Mydyr Evans) reported that, in accordance with the resolution of the Council at the previous meeting he had sent a strong appeal, with a prepaid telegram to Mr Lloyd George, M.P., to the House of Commons. asking that gentleman to attend a passive resist- ance demonstration to be held at Barry at a future date, but up till then he had received no reply.- Rev T. Pandy John stated that he had also written to Mr Lloyd George. M.P., Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., and the Rev D. J. Hiley, of Bristol, but neither of these gentlemen had yet replied. As the resuit of a short discussion, a committee, composed of the Revs T. Pandy John, D. Lee Cann, and J, Mydyr Evans, Mr E. J. Thomas, and Mr James Cruise, was formed, such committee being delegated with power to deal with any replies from the gentlemen named, and to make arrangements for the formation of a Passive Resistance Demonstration. — A suggestion was also made by the Rev T. Pandy John that a resist- ance meeting be held during the week of the annual meetings of the Bible Christian Connexion at Barry Docks next week, when they might be able to secure the services of some of the best ministers of that connexion. A deputation having waited upon the Overseers of the Poor of Barry parish, asking their acceptance of part payment of the poor rate, thus enabling a practical protest to be made against the adminis- tration of the Education Act at Barry, the Rev D. H. Williams said the overseers had received them very courteously, and promised to ascertain their legal position in the matter. When he received a reply he would send same to the Press for publication. The question of the formation of a Passive Resistance Committee was next discussed.-The President said he was glad to see that a number of ladies had already resisted payment of the rate. (Hear, hear.)—Rev D. H. Williams suggested that they call it the Barry Citizens' League," and that its objects be as follows :—(!) To offer passive resistance to the payment of that portion of the Education Rate which will go towards the main- tenance of sectarian schools. (2) To unite to- gether for mutual support and encouragement. (3) To supply any necessary legal or educational information.-It was resolved to form the League and the Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., was appointed secretary, and in order to enable Mr Williams to carry out the duties, it was decided that the Rev W. Williams take over the editorship of the Welsh portion of the Free Church Magazine, the Rev C. J. Clarke being appointed to edit the English portion.- A list having been sent around the meeting, eighteen persons present signed the same, and pledged themselves to passively resist the Education Act. FIRST MEETING OF THE LEAGUE. Following the Free Church Council meeting, a meeting of the Barry Citizens' League, or Passive Resistance Committee, was held, Mr S. R. Jones being voted to the chair. Mr E. J. Thomas, solicitor, was elected treasurer Mr W. J. Flower was appointed district secretary for Barry Dock Mr J. Meikle for Cadoxton and the Rev D. H. Williams (the general secretary) for Barry. A committee, consisting of the chairman, the three secretaries, and treasurer, was appointed to form rules. The Secretary was instructed to draft an announcement, and send the sam e to all theNoncon- formist Churches in the town, stating that a meeting would be held on the following Tuesday, at Tabernacle Chapel. — Rev D. Lee Cann pro- nounced the benediction, and the meeting concluded*
MEETING OF THE PASSIVE RESISTANCE LEAGUE. In accordance with an announcement made at the different Nonconformist Churches in the town on Sunday, a largely-attended meeting was held on Tuesday evening last at Tabernacle Vestry, Barry Docks. Mr S. R. Jones presided, and announced that the hon. secretary — Rev D. II. Williams, M.A. — was unable to be present owing to indisposition. The Chairman addressed the meeting on the work and objects of the League. As Nonconformists, he said, they had been wronged by the Government, and they were determined to take their stand and fight the enemy. The Education Act sought to compel people to pay for the teaching of religious dogmas which were contrary to their conscientious beliefs. If the managers of denominational schools wished to have religious instruction imparted they should be prepared to pay for it. By means of the League they sought no favour but fairplay, and they were going to get it. (Cheers.) — It was decided to call the League the Barry Passive Resistance League," Mr S. R. Jones being chairman Mr J. O. Davies, vice-chairman; Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., hon, secretary and the following as executive com- mittee :—Barry—Rev C. J. Clarke, Messrs W. H. Gibby and John Jenkins; Barry Dock-Rev T. Pandy John, Messrs J. Cruise and 1. Bateman Cadoxton—Rev Aaron Davies, Messrs T. Walters and H. H. RusselL-A large number joined the league.
-n_ -+'- DINAS POW1S PARISH COUNCIL. Major General H. H. Lee, R.E., J.P., presided at the monthly meeting of the St. Andrew's Major Parish Council held at the National School, Dinas Powis, on Monday evening, when the other members present were Messrs H. Wallis, H, i Barrett, H. Naldrett, J. Howell, H. Wright, and R. Chatterton, Mr H. Barrett introduced his motion that steps be tak(-n to assist the police in deafing with Sunday drinking in the village by the erection of a police cell at Dinas Powis. This lead to a heated discussson, some of the members contending that there was not snffinient Sunday drinking at Dinas Powis to justify the proposed action being taken. Eventually the Council decided to refer the matter to the Chairman, who is a member also of the Joint Police Committee of the County. A letter was read from Mr Spanceley, Cardiff, the district postmaster, acceeding to the request of the Council to erect a larger post pillar box near Dinas Powis Railway Station for the reception of letters, &c., on Sunday. It was decided to ask the Rural District Council to proceed with the widening of the Eastbrook Road as soon as possible. The Council agreed to adopt measures to take legal proceedings against persons doing damage to the public seats at Dinas Powis Common and the clerk (Mr W. M. Williams) was directed to have the village fountains at Dinas Powis and Eastbrook repaired and renovated.

WHY I AM WELL. An Intelligent Rustic tells how Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured THE AGONY OF INDIGESTION. Food is worse than wasted when we eat and can- not digest it. The stomach rebels against its presence. Miserable pains at the waist, a weight on the chest, severe headaches, a foully-coated tongue, Bile, Liver-complant, and eventually disease of the kidneys or ulceration of the coats of the Stomach, result from neglect of what- seems a uriviai ailment—a sense of fulness after eating, with wind and indigestion. with wind and indigestion. One of ths most intelligent people ever interviewed in connection with a cure by Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People (which have proved a blessing to thousands of sufferers from Indigestion) is Mr John Rush, an agricultural labourer, who lives at South Lopham, Norfolk. His cure excited something like a sensation locally, for he had long been a martyr, and his intelligence made him highly respected. He was actually interviewed on the subject by the JSorwich Mercury, and said Although I have as a rule Mr John Rush. enjoyed fairly good health, yet in the hot weather I have had severe indigestion. Last harvest I had terrible pains in the pit of the stomach, which seemed to take my appetite quite away, and left me in very poor health. No matter what I ate, it seemed to do me no good. The indigestion lasted for weeks, and at last I got in such a low state of health that I had to stop work. The pains in my stomach were so sharp that they kept me awake at night. It was not until I j got a box of Dr Williams' Pink Pills that I began to get any better. After the first few doses I noticed an improvement. The severe pains left me, my appetite began to return, and I enjoyed ¡ my food. After I had taken between two and three boxes the Indigestion had quite left me, and I felt well again." Lack of power to extract nourishment from food afflicts thousands of haggard men and women em- bittered by perpetual gnawing pain. The stomach requires the tone," or strength supplied by Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. These pills have cured all disorders arising from impoverished blood, ansjmia, rickets, scrofula, decline," consumption,indigestion, palpitations, rheumatism, sciatica, St. Vitus' dance, paralysis, locomotor ataxy, neuralgia, and all disturbances of the nervous system. The price is 2s. 9d., for one box, or for six boxes, 13s. 9d., sent direct by the manufacturers, Dr Williams' Medicine Company. Holborn-viaduct, London, or obtainable of medicine dealers. Intending purchasers are sometimes deceived into accepting substitutes, but customers will find safety from deception by insisting on seeing the full name, Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, on the packet handed to them.

J BARRY NEW CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. SERMON BY THE REV. PRINCIPAL FORSYTH. THE CHURCH FABRIC AND PERSONAL DEVOTION. As we briefly stated last week in our report of the proceedings connected with the laying of the jouuuai-iuii stoat', of mdhor-road Com-iFgat-ional Churcu, Barry, on Wednesday, the 10th distant, the special preacher at the evening ?r.rvi?e> hpTd at the Wesleyan Church, kindly lent for the occasion, was the Rev P. T, Forsyth, A i, D D principal of Hackney College, London,who delivered a masterly discourse to a crowded con- gregation. Dr Forsyth preached from the text, What mean ye by these stones ? (Joshua iv., 6.) The iOundation scone of the new church laid that afternoon would gather around it other stones, fitjy shaped into a holy temple and the question naturally would be asked how came they there ? They cost money- bbour, and ED.c'>ficp. They looked back upon these fabrics and admired the churches and cathedrals that had been built centuries ago, and thought oi the faith ;:¡,¡It had caused them to be built. That faith had not decreased; these edifices were still heine f r^et-d • and the answer would come to their children, as it had come to them, that it w-s wovth the money and labour, and sacrifice to erect them. Going back to the story of the text, Dr Forsvth said these stones meant something. They were memorial stones, speaking stones, and had a soietnn mean- ing. The stones of the churches v.t^ nci- put together merely as objects of beaut.?. They were to aid the preaching of the pulpit they were stones that spoke out. Thev helped to irc'daim the vrcspel. Yet tiiere could be as much real wor- ship in a church that was a barn as in a beautiful cathedral. The test of the church was not in the behaviour or conduct of its members. Thoy did not find that the success of Christianity depended upon the members of the church. If that was the case, Christianity would not survive a century. When he spoke to Christians, he told them there was much room for improvement: but when he spoke with those who were not Christians it was his joy to defend the Church, h;;d tell those who were only too pleased to find f.rai.t with the Church, to come inside themselves and make it better by th"ir example and infliisrce What was needed in the churches safe more self- criticism, self-examination, and self- vigilance; they should be vigilant with trembling. The Church was there in the power of the stospel. and would rise or fall with the gospel. The Church did not say Look at m°." but me." Thft Church was not an object, of faith Thev had parted company with those who tried to c&s upon them that the Church was an object oi xaich. It was a witness, and not an ioct of faith. What the pulpit was in the Church, so "3 'he Church itself to the neighbourhood in which it stood. No work was con.i' with tne Ccaouuig of the right kind. All preachy was not done in the Church. A preacher might not excel in minis- terial work and in pastoral work. Th y .-hcald not expect it. They should not kill th- preening genius of their minister by trying to extort from him pastoral genjUR. During divine worship in some churches he had heard whispers, and frequently during the offering- of nervous excitement tcuk the place of Liue woibhip Ministers should insist upon more reverence both before and during divine worship. They had lost more to the EstaS'ishcd Church because of the poverty of their worship than from any other cause, nnd there were a grea". many other causes. They ought to be full to overflowing with the reverence that was the t and essence of worship. The wonder was not that God should touch the heart, of their insignificant beings, bnt that He should toueh the hea.rts ü1 s,icd enormous sinners as they were. The man who said from the bottom of his heart, God be merciful to me a sinner," was one who had tasted of the love of God. The length and breadth of the love of God was great, but the height and depth of the love was much greater. Let them never let their love for God grow thin, or their whole moral and spiritual tone would also grow thin. The churches lacked people with soul s history. People who were converted twenty years ago were the same religiously to-day as they were then. Thf-re was no romance about their soul's history. In the churches they must have living stones, people with living histories. They should not be at liberty to do in the Church what thev would not do in their own homes. Let them take off their hats when they crossed the threshold of the sanctuary, and when they entered into conversation their whole tone should be subdued to the reverence of the occasion. He had with great horror heard whistling in the corridors of the churches. These were places that should be held in sacred regard because they were the places where they met God and opened out their heart to Him. He prayed that the grace of God would rest upon this church in their new spiritual home that His glory might be frequently revealed and that many souls would be drawn to Christ within its portals."
