THE QUESTION OF HEALTH. There is an qld saying A stitch in time saves nine," and if upon the first symptoms of anything being wrong with our health we were to resort to some simple but proper means of correcting the mischief, nine-tenths of the suffering that invades our homes would be avoided. The body is a machine full of intri- cate and delicate mechanism and when one part is impeded it gradually throws the whole out of gear unless it is quickly put right. A cold, a chill, a touch ef indigestion or liver complaint, a pain in the loins or the little indiscretions to which in the hurry and tur- moil of life we are all prone (such as eating too quickly, not taking sufficient rest, worrying too much over our troubles, etc., etc.), all tend to bring about a deadlock in some part of the human mechanism or a weakening or slowing down of the whole. A good bracing tonic, one that will re-vitalise and will wind up all the machinery, will at such times work greater wonders than a Jong course of nmseous medicines. A dose of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters taken when you feel the least bit out of sorts is just that "stitch in time." The question of health is a matter which is sure to concern us at one time or another, specially when Influenza is so prevalent as it is just now, so it is well to know what to take to ward off an attack of this most weakening disease, this epidemic catarrh or sold of an aggravated kind, to combat it whilst under its baleful influence, and particularly after an attack, for then the system is so lowered as to be liable to the most dangerous of com- plaints. Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters is acknowledged by all who have given it fair trial to be the best specific remedy for dealing with Influenza in all its various stages, being a preparation skilfully prepared with Quinine and accompanied with other blood purifying and enriching agents, suitable for the liver digestion, and all those ailments requiring tonic strengthening and nerve increasing pro- perties It is invaluable for those suffering with colds, pneumonia, or any serious illness, or prostration caused by sleeplessness, or worry of any kind, when the body has a gen- eral feeling of weakness and lassitude. Don't delay, but try it now, Send for a copy of the pamphlet of testimonials, which carefully read and consider well, then buy a bottle (sold in ,F.wo sizes. 2s. 9d. and 4s. 6d.) at your nearest Chemist or Stores, but when purchasing see that the name "Gwilym Evans" is on the label stamp, and bottle, for without which none are genuine.

Some had experiences that. night that will live in their memory as long as they live, especially those who had never undergone the same experience before. Others there are who will have forgotten all about it or, at least, it will be only classed among the storms they had often witnessed before. One gentleman coding from Glanywern to Borth, wishing to see the storm, had an experience that he will not wish to have again in a hurry. The volume of water was so great coming over the road that he, in his confusion, went into an old condemned life- boat that had been standing by the roadside for years. He wished to escape wetting his feet and manned the lifeboat. The sea, how- ever, began moving the boat so it dawned upon him that the lifeboat was a misnomer as it began filling with the sea. When he descended from this sinking craft he was up to his waist in the boiiing scathing water. Eventually he reached the village and found a hospital asylum.
CROSSWOOD. Ball.—On Monday evening, the annual servants' Christmas ball was held at Orosswood Park. Soon after nine o'clock the ball was formally opened by Lady Amherst, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Crawley Boevey, Mr. Campbell, and Miss Probin. Lady Amherst, amongst other pretty remarks, wished everybody present a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Her ladyshijp also said that Lord Lisburne and Lady Enid Vaughan were unable to be present, as they had left that evening for Yorkshire; but before leaving they hoped everybody would enjov'themselves. The programme consisted of various items such as dancing, singing, recitations, etc. Miss Lyke provided music which was supplemented by selections from a grama- phone. Songs were sung by Mr. Godfrey Luca.s, and a quartette by Messrs. Robertson and Hazeldine, T. Davies, and R. E. Steadman. The ball room and tables were tastefully decor- ated by Mr. Hazeldine and his assistants. After a sumptuous dinner was partaken of and a little more dancing, a hearty vote of thanks was, given to Mr. Hines and MiE:" Greenwav for their splendid management, which brought a very pleasant evening to a close.
LLANON. Christmas Day.—The old custom of keeping a plygain at five o'clock in the morning was upheld by the Church people.

Sudden Death.—Early on Monday morning Mr. David Evans, a nephew of Captain Evans, Friends House, got up as usual to attend to duties as a ware- houseman at the Abercledan Stores, and ^as £ V? act of lacing his boots when he fell unconscious. By the time mem- bers of the famiW came to his assistance he was faintly breathing his last. The painful suddenness of the death of such an apparently strong hea,thy man caM a gloom over the village. The deceased was a quiet unassuming person whose run attainments were only known to a few. He was a Welsh nationalist and was well versed in Welsh literature. He was conversant with the "Awdlau" and Cywyddau of the bards ancient and modern. He was for some years a mem- ber of Siloh Congregational Chape! where his loss will be greatly felt. He was ntty-three years of age.

FOOTBALL. MONTGOMERY AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. ABERYSTWYTH v. BAR-NIO-UTH. Playing on the Smithfield Ground on iuesday afternoon, Aberystwyth secured two points at the expense of Barmouth. Despite the soft nature of the playing pitch, a good game was witnessed by a large number of spectators. Barmouth, who had a much stronger team than that defeated by the College scored soon after the commencement, and, to the huge de- light of their supporters, the North Wales team added their second goal soon after- wards. This goal was the result of a good centre by J. Humphreys. Aber- ystwyth made valiant efforts to, pierce the Barmouth defence and forced several corner-kicks without avail. Matters looked gfoomy indeed for the Town when at half-time Barmouth led by two goals to nil. During the second half of the game, Aberystwyth were continually in the neighbourhood of their opponents' goal, and before this half was many minutes old, D. R. Davies scored Aber's first goal, and soon afterwards Johnny Griffiths put matters on an equality amid great cheering. Playing with great en- ergy, Aberystwyth were bent on winning outright and, aided by the good play of the home half backs, Aberystwyth notched their winning goal through Johnny Jones. The cheers were loud and prolonged. A few minutes before the end, Hughie Jones put the issue beyond all doubt by scoring Aber's fourth and last goal despite the good play of White- head in the Barmouth goal. Aberyst- wyth fully deserved their win-which was a creditable achievement—of four goals to two goals. Mr Lodwick, Oswestry, was the referee. ABERYSTWYTH & DISTRICT JUNIOR LEAGUE. CITY INSTITUTE v PADARN UNITED. These teams met on the Smithfield Ground on Monday afternoon in wet and boisterous weather. The Institute led at half-time by one goal to nil, but the final result was a draw of one goal each. D. Thomas was the scorer for Padarn and H. Jones for the Institute.

FISH OUT OF SEASON. I)r. Robc-rts, Plasweunydd, Blaenau i' a;tmiog,t as president of the Cambrian Angling Association has been, doing good \v oi k lately m direction of suppress- ing the reprehensible practice of catching trout during their spawning .season, from the end of October to the beginning of February., When the Association wa.s established in 1885 the members sought the assistance of the" British Medical Journal" which promptly published the paragraph re- rerred tc (February 27th, 1866). Being translated and published in TVelsh, it did a great deal of good by enlightening the public on the subject, both as to the depradation committed on the future stock of fish as well as the unfitness of trout flesh for food in this condition. T u 1 I mug tnat me ttepraved practice has been on the increase lately,, the Medical e Journal" was again appealed to and another article, published in reply, will no uoiiht be read with interest and edifica- tion. The article says:—"The provisions, embodied in the Fresh Water Fisheries, ct are not directed solely towards the preservation of property. They are in- tended to ensure that that propertv pi ate or public, shall not be misused, and that it shall have a reasonable and adqnate opportunity of recuperating nself It is obvious that this property consisting as it doss of live stock, will eventually perish unless the natural means of replenishment are afforded. This is absolutely essential in the case of tiout, wnich have a definite and normal spawning period. During that time .pro- tection and ireedom from molestation is. necessary let} in spite of its obvious V"uie' thus economic principle apparently tails to convince in some cases. The practice of catching spawning trout, u 'lien appears to be increasingly nre- eni, in some parts of the country, can-- not be too strongly condemned. Not only 13 [t, !l!t'Sa > it is wasteful and un- sportsmanlike. On the fisheries it works. great havoc and leads to much future loss. On biologica. and economic grounds alone, therefore, the practice is unquestionably ible, but there is th2, further not unimportant consideration of public health to be added, and it is in this 'i?S?>eC that we wordd strongly appeal to. those_ wno indirectly countenance tihe netanous practice by purchasing out-of- season Th.3h. It is a well-known fact that nsh wnen spawning and for some time- aiter are out or condition. The repro- ducvive process is a great drain en their other functions; their flesh in oarticular slitters, the muscles becoming 'soft and f, J*, 3 run-down condition tiie nsh are especially prone to attack by bacterial and parasitic diseases. These- cause further deterioration in th& fish and in many ca,3es lead to their death' Here we must be understood to be con- sidering the condition in fresh-water fishes. In their habits and circumscribed life they differ in many, respects from the- freer and more widely roaming marine toocl fishes, and -statement's with regard to the one are not necessarily applicable* to the other. There is no doubt, how- eyer. that trout suffer from this 'run- down condition., and when caotured in tins State their flesh decays more raoidlr than usuaL To consumers-, therefore, there is the by no means negligible danger ol iood poisoning from the or&sence of deleterious organisms. It is, we confess surprising that there should be- people' pardonably- fend of fish, who insist on gating trout all the year round. To' BntisV f^ ;frflau weaIt^ an<? variety of putish food fishes must assuredly be un- •' yrkm, kinl li condition may be had at all seasoiis of the year, and offhand ouph1IStn ™ent'on.fr)me of those, which ougat to be familiar to every one— namely, cod haddock, whiting sme't pollack, torsk, ling, hake, Kniibut turbot plaice, sole, flounder, dab, brill 'lierrin</ pilchard, bass, red mullet, grey J&11 j bream, mackerel, dory, catfish, salmon! eel, and cong;er—& list surely long enough to satisfy the most fastidious of palates." j-u Smi above, it will be seen that the flesh of the trout suffers about the most during the close season and. conse- quently, being solely a fresh water fish, with a more limited supply of food than the sea fish, it takes a longer time-four months —to recuperate and, as we know in February and even in March the trout is anything but firm and flavory to feast upon. The question may be asked How As it the herring when full of soawn is in its best eatable condition?" The answer is that salt water fish, as a rule, suffer comparatively little in the process of re- production, and it m said that the black so.e is in season all the year round, unless it may be slightly affected in July. TT e hspe the public will take heed and support the efforts of the Cambrian Association, as well ats those of angling 91 sportsmen^ generally to keep up the stock of trout in cur lakes and rivers, and if the public will refuse to buy or receive trout during the close season both the poacher and the thoughtless person will have no sale or means of disposal of their filthy goods and the murderous practice will naturally cease.
CARDIGAN. Milk Supply.—The Sanitary Inspector at the recent monthly meeting of the Town Council, reported upon the sanitary state of the dairies, &c., and as a result of his inspec- tion he had served eleven notices to milk vendors to clean and whitewash cowsheds and dairies. It was difficult to impress upon the milk vendors the importance of their trade as regarded the public health by using proper care respecting their premises, uten- sils, their own persons, and their animals. The rr ilk sellers have held a meeting, the result of which was to raise the price of milk from Monday next to fourpence per quart instead of threepence.
TO NEW YORK AND BACK IN TWELVE DAYS. The Mauretania accomplished the notable task which she essayed when she left Liver- pool on December 10th. Reaching Fishguard at twenty-two minutes past ten on Thursday night she achieved the round trip to New York and back in twelve days. This is the finest voyage of its kind in the annals of ocean travel. The Mauretania hove to outside Fishguard shortly before ten p.m., having made the eastward passage in 4 days 15h. 57min. The westward voyage of 2,780 nautical miles was done in 4 days 20h. 7min., at an average speed of 23.93. The average for the homeward trip was 25.10 knots per hour. The lowest daily average was from Monday to Tuesday noon, outward bound, 516 knots, or 20.72 per hour. The vessel carried 40C first class, 400 second cl8s>, and 1.100 third class passengers, besides her crew of 826 oflScers and men. Among those who went aboard the liner at Fishguard on Thursday night was Police- Sergeant Lewis of Goodwick, who quietly arrested a man, said to be a Spaniard, and wanted on » charge of stealing jewels in London. In his capture, wireless telegraphy played an important part, the New York police having cabled after the Mauretania's departure that the man was believed to be on board. An eloping couple were also said to be on board and that they were travelling under assumed names. Much romance was woven around the rumoun, it being freely asserted that the lady was the daughter of a rich American and the young man of humble position. Another story reversed this order of things, but confirmation of either was lacking. Indeed, if there was anv truth in the story at all, the couple had carefully covered up their tracks. One passenger received news by wireless that his wife had given birth to a daughter and in his delight and in honour of the record- breaking trip he decided to call her Maure- tania. The Cunard Company, in celebration of the vessel's success, gave the crew two days' extra pay. The Mauretania reached Liverpool at seven on Friday morning and was greeted with a chorus of sirens from all the liners and ferry boats.
