STILL GOING STRONG. The number of so-called remedies for Rheu- matism is so pronounced that it is difficult for the ordinary reader to know which to follow, but surely in all cases it is well to consider the "survival of the fittest." A medicine can- not sell for any lengthened period unless it does what is claimed for it. Which of the Rheu- matic and Gout oediciner, has lasted the longest? Undoubtedly the "pride of place" can be given to Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills. They have been in exisisnce for more than 100 vears and have relieved many thou- sands of persons. If anyone is afflicted with either Gout, Rheumatism, Sciatica, or Lum- bago, the evidence we have given shows that the one and only remedy is Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills.
RHEUMATISM KIDNEY TROUBLE. Rheumatism is due to uric acid, which is also the cause of backache, lumbago, sciatica, gout, urinary trouble, stone, gravel, dropsy. Estora Tablets, a thoroughly harmless specific c' based on modern medical science, are the suc- cessful treatment, and have cured numberless obstinate cases, which accounts for their super- seding out-of-date medicines. Women frequently suffer' from ills, aches, and pains under the im- pression that they are victims of ailments common to their sex, but more often than not it is due to the kidnevs, and in such cases Estora Tablets will set them right! Estora Tablets-an' honest remedy at an-honesty price —Is. 3d. per box of forty tablets, or six for 6s. 9d. All chemists, or postage free from Estora Co., 132, Charing Cross-road, London, W.C. 2.
Aberystwyth Guardians. <5ERMAN PRISONERS AND THE HOUSE. Aberystwyth Guardians met on Monday, Mr Daniel Jenkins presiding. The Master (Mr. William Lloyd) reported ti departure of Nurse Emma Morgan, and that Nur" Mrs. Rowlands had taken up temporary duti k John Roberts, agricultural commissioner, made inquiries regarding accommodation at the house for German prisoners for work on the land in the district. Mrs. Purton contributed two daily papers to the sick ward, and Mr R. Read and Mr. Rees a copy of the local papers. Fifteen hundredweight of old papers and books were sold and JE7 7s. 3d. paid into the common fund. On Christmas Day the inmates were enter- tained in accordance with the Board's decision, a hearty vote of thanks being given by the in- mates to the Board and its officials. In the vening the inmates were entertained to a mis- cellaneous concert arranged by the staff. On New Year's Day the inmates were entertained through the generosity of Mr. C. B. Bennets, India. In the evening a concert was organised by Mrs. George Rowlands, presided over by Mr Hugh Hughes, a member of the House Com- mittee. In reference to the question of lodging Ger- man prisoners, the Master explained that he promised Mr. Roberts to place the matter before the Committee. Mr. Roberts replied that the authorities had power to commandeer the house if they thought it advisable.—Mr. E. J. Evans said the Board should consider their position.— The Board should consider whether they could accommodate the prisoners apart from the forty- six inmates.—The Master said th& question was a serious one for the union. There were no boundary wall9 or other safeguards. There Was any number of empty buildings in the, town, so that there was no need to upset the house arrangements.—The Chairman said the boys who lost their blood in their country's behalf had to be content with the bare ground or, at best, a hut; and there was plenty of ,accommodation in the town good enough for "German prisoners.—Referring to the menu of the treats on Christmas and New Year's Day, JTr. J. R. Griffiths caused amusement by sug- gesting that the report should be submitted to Sir Arthur Yapp. Mr. Edwin Morris raised the case of two mentally-defective boys in the house. Mr. H. R. Williams Local Government Board inspector, suggested that they should be sent to a suitable home for mental defectives.—The suggestion Was adopted. The Master, Matron, and women guardians were deputed to decide between the three ■candidates for the post of nurse. Teignmouth Union sent a resolution through 'the Poor Law Association protesting against the alleged intention of the Reconstruction Committee to supersede tjoards of guardians.- 3ffr. J. R. Griffiths said the Government took office on the plea of going on with the war; but instead of that it was continually interfer- ing and tinkering with all kinds of subjects. According to rumours, the proposals meant to abolish boards of guardians and to hand their work over to the County Council who would Appoint small local committees, a kind of glori- fied parish councils, to carry on the work. No effective reason for superseding the Guardians had been given.-Mr. W. T. Lewis, Borth, Seconded a resolution of protest against the —JJr. E. J. Evans said it was difficult to decide without further particulars of the proposals; but one fact was quite apparent. The County Council had already more work than it' could perform. If more work was added it would mean that the Council would have to sit permanently from day to day. The County Council had taken over the adminis- tration of education; but those conversant with "the question was doubtful if its administra- tion had been any improvement on the system of the school board which it supplanted.—Mr. 1 John Morgan, Trinity~-road, and Mr. Edwin Ifforris agreed with the views expressed.-The "Chairman said schemes were continually drawn lip which looked imposing on paper, but when put into operation were far from practicable. -The proposition of protest was unanimously opted.
LLANILAR. Mrs. Shearman, Pentrellyn, is seriously ill. "Her only son (Private Algie Shearman) is serv- ing his country in Palestine. Mrs. Shearman Was for several years maid to the Duchess of Northumberland and in consequence often came in contact with the late King and Queen and members of the Royal Family. Her husband, who died three or four years ago, was gardener to the great naturalist, Charles Darwin.

I met Harry Hopkins some time ago. He looked well and often pays us a visit. It is nice to meet old pals. I have also met two other Aber. boys. They were in the Guards and they looked first class.

Aberystwyth Patriot's Death. Private D. Hubert Evans, Welsh Regiment, was invalided home from France and after recover- ing was stationed at Redcar, Yorkshire, where he contracted pneumonia and died on January 16th at Red Barnes Hospital, Redcar. He was the eldest surviving son qf Mr. and Mrs. Compton Evans, Queens-square, Aberystwyth, late i of Regent House, Pontypridd. They were privileged to be with him from the Sunday until the Wednesday when he passed away in their presence. The military arrangements were carried out at Redcar and his remains were accompanied to Aberystwyth by Sergeant Herbert, 3rd Welsh. His sisters and brother and the Rev. Richard Hughes proceeded to Llanidloes to join the family and the remains were laid to rest in the family grave. The mourners were Mr. and Mrs. Compton Evans, parents; Mrs. Glynne Jones, London, sister; the Misses Mabel and Ethel Evans, Aber- ystwyth, Miss Violet Evans, St. Anstell, Miss Irene Evans, Shrewsbury, and Mrs. Myrtle Evans,. Dolgelley, sisters; Trevor M. Evans, R.N.A.S., Eastchurch, Corporal R. L. Evans, France, and Private C. C.

Rural Food Committee. ALLEGED BREACH OF ORDERS. Aberystwyth Food Control Committee met on Monday, present Mr. David James, presiding; Messrs. J. Bunce Morgan, R. L. Thomas, David Jones, David James, Penllwyn; John Morgan, D. Lewis, Llanilar; Ll. D. Lewis, Ponterwyd; T. Jones, Cwmystwyth; and James Hughes, executive officer. Mr. R. L. Thomas, referring to the allocation of one pound of sugar to farmers having a threshing machine at their farms and providing food for the men employed, Mr. Thomas said he heard many complaints of inadequacy. The Chairman said the scale was one pound for fiftv-six meals. One pound per day was allowed. People would be lucky if they secured one pound. At present even that quantity could not be guaranteed. Mr. R. J. Rhys, of the Ministry of Food, wrote:—Will you kindly make it known throughout your a rea, that unless slaughter house keepers and retail butchers comply with the terms under which their licences are issued and send in the necessary returns they run a grave risk of having their licences withdrawn." On the question of curtailing butter allowance suggested by the Ministry of Food, Mr. Bunce Morgan said the conditions regarding butter supply would shortly improve. They were now in the very worst part of the year for supplies. It was decided to set in respect of tea and margarine and to adjourn the butter question for later consideration. It was decided to supply each baker in the district with a copy of the order respecting the use of potatoes in bread. On the proposition of Mr. Bunc'e Morgan, it was decided to petition the Ministry of Food to grant power to appoint some independent per- son to adjudicate on the condition of corn, oats, etc.,1 now unused and in the hands of farmers, with a view of enabling farmers to deal promptly with the matter. Complaints were made of delays bv wholesale houses in the supply of sugar to retailers, which caused much inconvenience and resentment.—It was decided to communicate with the Sugar Commissioners and to urge the importance of prompt delivery of supplies. It was decided to increase the'maximum price of meat to the level adonted by the Borough Food Committee which had recently revised their figures. 'On the proposition of Mr. R. L. Thomas, seconded bv Mr. R. Ll. Lewis, it was deader! to apply for the reimbursement of railway fares for members proceeding to and from the meeting, and -,I,o that the labour representa- tive should be allowed payment for loss of time in attending meetings. The Executive Officer was instructed to ascertain the sum claimed. Mr. John Morgan said it was a fact that orders that came into force were ignored bv 10c:>.J\t>"ad"Ts. At Talybont tea was sold at 4s. a pound, instead of 3s. 8d. as by Government order. Mr. James Hugfhes sniil the police were empowered to tnkp proceedings in all cases or breaches of the orders. The Chairman said each individual memb^" was also dutv hound to warn offenders, and if the offence was'repeated to give such informa- tion as would lead to prosecution. Each mem- ber wos in honour bound to secure compliance with the law.

0 Red Cross Hospital. NURSES AS ENTERTAINERS. The winding up of Christmas and New Year festivities a the Red Cross Hospital fell to the lot of -he nurses who, under the dir- ectorsh.p of Sister Miller, gave a splendid entertainment on Wednesday evening of last week. Pleasant surprise was, the dominant note of the evening. The ringing up of the curtain showed a gipsy encampment, with camp-fire complete. The pc, formance opened with an overture which delighted the wounded Hoys nnd amid great app.ause Sister Mider bowed her acknowledgments. Successful from the rising of the curtain was the whole evening and a thorough gcod entertainment, mucii enjoyed by everyone, was given. A chorus from "'Cingalee" followed the overture and was encored. Nurses E. and M. Lewis sang a pretty' duet most successfully. Nurse Farrow gavc\ of her best. No small contribution was made by Nurses Morris Davies, Emiiy Enlw:, McLaugh.n, M. Sinnett, and Ceri Williams. They acted numerous son,- titles and charades. Three ladies appeared en the progrsmme as H.I.T. and the audience had to guess what the letters represented. Prizes wore presented for the successful solutions of all the problems. An excellent charade, "Arate," in three acts, highly delighted the audience. H.I.T. were a great success and much credit is due to all concerned. Tac opportunity for a skit on the famous Monty and Carlo duct was too good r; be missed and y.o there was a delightful impersonation by Nurse Long as .Tcniy and Nurse Harries as Carlo. Nurse de-Say Thomas whistled her audience into v.rapt attention. Nurse War- rington sang of her wish a be in "Arizona," the boys" helpingher in the chorus. Miss Rea. was t reless in her services at the piano and abl accompanied. Nurse Eunice Le--is brought the successful evening to a close bv leading the audience in "H-n Wiad fy Nhadau" and "God Save the King."
