Football Rugby. I LLWYNYPIA 20pis., MERTHYR 0. I Scorers: -Tom Griffiths (3), Tom Lloyd, Jack Roberts, and T. Edmunds, tries; Tom Thomas kicked the goal. The game at Llwynypia on Saturday last aim be described as nothing but a Complete walk-over for the home team, who, had they played anything up to their standard, ought to have scored double the amount of points. The quar. tet played splendidly. The forwards were unsurpassable in many phases of the game. Ted Mithan. Idwal Thomas, and Harrison played cleverly. P.C. Cum- mings, the Welsh amateur champion boxer, is rapidly becoming a. footballer of no mean order. The Merthyr team had capital forwards in George Evans and P.O. Lett. TREOROHY 6pts.. TREHERBERT 5. Scorers '-For Treorchy, Jones and Hughes; for Treherbert, Hall (try) and Jones (goal). The League match between tliese,teamg at Treherbert created a large amount of interest, and in pleasing contrast to the sparse attendance at the four meetings under the auspices of the Welsh Cup, it was exceedingly gratifying to find the < record crowd of the season present. Tre- herbert opened the game sensationally, but they failed to penetrate the keen defence of the visitors until near the interval, when Charlie Hall was granted a try, for which the Treorchy supporters showed their disapproval. W. Lion Jones converted with a beautiful kick. Tre- orchy improved after this, and Morgan Jones, picking up in the loose, spOred a try under the posts. The kick of Daly James was touched in the flight by one of the home players, and no goal resulted. After the interval, Treorchy were un- deniably the superior side, and Hughes scored after a scramble, thus giving the visitors a well-deserved victory by the narrowest of margins. Association. I MID-RHONDDA 2gls.. CARDIFF CITY 21 Keenor and Hopkins scored for Cardiff, and Love and Smith for Mid-Rhondda. On a heavy ground that prevented either side giving a display of football in its finer phases, Mid-Rhondda and Cardiff City Reserves shared points in a Welsh Leagce contest on Thursday, the 19th inst. But the game turned out to be an Interesting one throughout, and play was far better in character than could reason- ably have been expected. Mid-Rhondda set to work with rare dash, and had it not been for the fine exhibition of goal- keeping given by Kneeshaw they must have gained an early lead. An occa- sional breakaway by Cardiff tested the home defence, and Main and Bain were sound. A long shot put in by Hopkins was well stopped by Ward, but Keenor gave Cardiff the lead with a well sent drive. The Rhonddaites were undeservedly in arrear on the run of play. The second halt was far more even than the first had been, and the players Showed remarkable staying powers. Smith equal- ised from a melee, and later amidst great enthusiasm Love put Mid-Rhondda ahead. A nice bit of work by Olarke was im- proved upon by Hopkins, who gave Car- diff a second goal, and there was no fur- ther scoring. Taken all through, both sets of players deserve compliment upon their pluck. MUSHROOMS IN FORM. i MID-RHONDDA 6gls., CAERPHILLY 0. Though played on a sodden ground, the Southern League game between iiNU& Rhondda and Caerphilly, on the former's ground on Saturday last. was productive of some smart football, and seldom have the Mushrooms been seen to better ad- vantage. Their quintet played extremely well, and Ldve, at inside-left, was quite the outstanding player in a good line. He and Collier contributed goals in the first quarter of the game, and before the interval further scores came through Evans and Bain, the latter netting from a penalty. On the change of ends, the pace slackened somewhat, and when Car- michael put Mid-Rhondda still further ahead with a nice shot from a corner the homesters seemed content to take mat- ters easy. Smith, however, experienced hard lines, and eventually Love rushed in and completed the half-dozen, after Bate- man had stopped one from Evans. Car- michael again distinguished himself at right half, where he is deputising McCullum, and. though the home backs had little to do, they did that little well. On the Caerphilly side the honours were divided by Bateman in goal, who effected numerous excellent saves, and Davies, who played a smart game at outside-right. Mid-Rhondda were full value for their half-dozen goals, and it is noteworthy that their goal average is now just on the right side. TON-PENTRE 6gls., ABERDARE 0. I Scorers —Gregory, Curtis, Hemmings (3), and Chetwood. Ton's spirited play made the game well worth witnessing, and they were full value for their substantial win. For a time the fine defence of Tinsley and Phillips kept the Reds out, but after Gregory had opened the score Ton's rushes were fine to witness, and time after time they broke through the 'Darians' defence, Curtis adding the second goal before the interval in fine style. Resuming, the 'Darians' defence fell off woefully, and soon Phillips was again beaten by Hemmings twice in quick suc- cession. Chetwood next scored, Hern- mings adding the sixth. LLANBRADACH ROVERS llgls., MID- RHONDDA RESERVES 0. Mid-Rhondda Reserves were trounced to the tune of 11 goals a^ Llanbradach on Saturday last. This Second Division Welsh League match was sensational owing to prolific scoring by the homesters. The visitors were completely nonplcssed by the speed and combination of their opponents. Tudor was in particularly fine form, and scored on five occasions. Dunsford, too, played prettily through- out. In the second half the visitors could make no show, and their plight became pitiless, the homesters scoring almost at five minutes intervals throughout this moiety. Scorers for Llanbradach, Tudor (5), Dunsford (2), Dai Morgan (2). Griff. Wil- liams, and Tom Davies.
Has Pontypridd Found the Same ? We have been reading week after week in the local Press of.Tonypandy citizens who have been cured of distressing kidney and bladder troubles by Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and we have often wondered whether the same high opinion of this medicine is to be found in our neighbour- ing towns. This frank and earnest state- ment by a well-known and respected resi- dent of Pontypridd will set this doubt at rest. Mr. J. James, of 5, Leyshon Street, Graig, Pontypridd, says:—"After sitting in a chair for a time I could hardly get up again or straighten myself, owing to sharp, cutting pains in my back. When I was in bed I could hardly turn over. "I have to work underground, and the work is exceedingly trying sometimes, as I could not get rid of the pains. I was subject to giddy sensations as well. But after taking a fete doses of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, I began to feel better. I took two boxes, and by that time my back was all right, and free of pain. I am quite well now. and I am pleased to say there has been no feeling of backache pains since. I had told many about Doan's Pills. (Signed) J. James."

Why Your Stomach Hurts. A DOCTOR'S COMMON-SENSE ADVICE aii in the stomach, variously called indigestion, dyspepsia, flatulence, heart- burn, stomach-ache, etc., is usually attri- buted to some unnatural, abnormal or diseased condition of the stomach itself. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Nineteen times out of twenty the stomach is absolutely healthy and normal, the pain and discomfort" being entirely due to the acidity and fermen- tation of food which irritates and dis- tends the stomach although if this con- dition is allowed to run on, in time the constant irritation of the acid is likely to eat into the stomach walls and produce ulcers and sometimes cancer of the stomach. Medicine is useless in such a case. The acid and fermenting food must be removed by a stomach pump or an emetic, or you must neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taking half a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia in a little water. This latter is by far the simpler and safer method. Bisurated magnesia almost immediately neutralises the dangerous acid and by correcting the food contents enables even a tired, weak stomach to digest almost any food with- out any difficulty. Physicians advise that bisurated magnesia should be kept in every home, and a little taken after each meal whenever the slightest tendency to food fermentation is shown. Be sure to obtain bimrated magnesia, as other forms of magnesia are valuable as tooth and mouth washes, but they do not give satisfactory resutls in stomach disorders. 2787

Footlight Fare. I I EMPIRE, TONYPANDY. I "The Old Folks at Home," which is being presented by Messrs. Edward Lloyd and Clifford Bown and their celebrated company at the Empire this week, is draw- ing large audiences. The theme is old, but yet familiar and interesting, intro- ducing life among the negroes of Vir- ginia, which is reminiscent of the prac- tically extinct "Uncle Tom's Cabin" plays. In addition, there is a variety programme contributed by Lloyd Morgan, the celebrated light comedian and actor- vocalist, who has a world-wide reputa- tion. and Frank Hartley, the clean, clever juggler, another artiste of repute. Some marvellous juggling feats are performed with lightning rapidity. The ever-popular Empiroscope, as usual, is in the front line with pictures of the first order; whilst the orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. D. H. Purvis, relieve the monotony of intervals with good music. NEW HIPPODROME, TONYPANDY. I A great attraction is being presented at the Hippodrome this week in the revue, "Say When." It has captured the admiration of large audiences this week, and the real Argentine Tango is danced (whether objectionable or not) in marvellous fashion. This has been the chief feature of the revue, the company of which number close upon 20 players. The management is to be complimented upon the good judgment exercised in the choice of subjects. Despite the fact that it takes up a large amount of the time there is a splendid variety programme, and patrons will receive value for their money. I CLYDACH VALE CINEMA. I This new picture house was opened on Monday night last by Councillor,. E. J. Roderick. The hall, which is most taste- fully decorated, was packed to the doors, and hundreds of eager would-be patrons failed to obtain admission. The King of the Air," a beautifully coloured film, by Pathe, and other first-class pictures made up an attractive performance, which was greatly appreciated by those present. Mr. Molineaux, at the close of the per- formance, thanked the audience for their patronage and kind appreciation, and announced that he had made arrange- ments for a constant supply of some of the finest films obtainable for the enjoy- ment of the patrons of the Clydach Vale Cinema. The hall seats about 71)0 per- sons. is comfortably upholstered with tip- up chairs, and compares most favourably with the best cinemas in the kingdom. The pictures are extremely clear and igteady. I WORKMEN'S HALL, TON. The star turn this week is that pro- vided by the Gascoignes, whose contri- bution consists of some of the most astonishing juggling feats yet accom- plished at this hall. In addition to their clever performance their patter is highly amusing. The performance of the balancing dog, "Bertha," gains much applause. Lance and Nellie give a remarkably clever exhibition of dancing in clogs. The pictures are excellent, and the whole entertainment makes a splendid evening's enjoyment. Next week's programme will consist of the usual first-class pictures and special variety items, of which there will be three. Edith St. Clair pays a return visit, singing new songs. Her previous appearance was excellently received, and patrons will be delighted to hear this talented artiste again. Gracie Gerald, a charming comedienne, with some excel- lent songs, is certain to amuse. The Ricard Nava Quartet will appear in a vocal and instrumental act. GRAND THEATRE, PENTRE. Hindle Wakes," played by Mr. Edwin T. Hey's Company, is attracting unusual attention at this theatre this week. The play is excellently acted, and the storv Thl which mfintains interest throughout The chief characters ??

Dockwray; Mrs Jephcote," Miss Eva Forrest; "Alan Jephcote," Mr. Eric Algar; "Sir Timothy Farrar, Mr. William West; and Beatriee Farrar," Miss Mary Bartrick.

The ladies kicked off, Miss Morell at the commencement and Miss Wall after half-time. The teams honoured were Pentre Thursdays and Gelli Old Boys. The game, which was strenuously fought out resulted in a win for Pentre by 2 goals to nil. Mr. W. E. Willis (junr.) captained the winning side. Next week, Mr. Paul Beckett and Miss Enid Edoni's Company will play a sen- sational drama, "Victims of Vice" written by Enid Edoni. The company, which is composed of first-class artistes, will include Miss Enid Edoni as "Dorothy Desmond,"Mr. Paul Beckett as "Arthur Dacre," and Mr. Henry Beckett as Bernstein, the Jew." When this com- pany last played at the Grand, crowded houses were present nightly. PAVILION, TREORCHY. i This week's programme at the Pavilion is proving an excellent draw. Harold and Bennett, in their comedy duo. "Inter- ruptions," are doing exceedingly well. J. R. Bennett is much applauded for his funny patter and comedy tumbling. Marie Gros, comedienne, is securing her share of applause for her two numbers; whilst the sketch. Dobson's Day Off," played by Ar<iU(| Elliston and Co., is received very well; some of the situations are reallv funny.

A Car Without a Conductor. A fine but rather serious hoax was played on the driver of one of the cars from Portly up on Wednesday evening. Some passengers rang the bell, and the car started, but without the conductor. The game was kept up till the car reached Penygraig, where the motorman found out that the conductor was missing. He left the car at Penygraig, and went back to Porth in another car to look for the conductor. Printed for the Proprietors by Meoan.
