Vic And now for Reconstruction j But first Reconstruct your Nervous System One of the most distin- guished of living scientists— formerly Assistant Professor of Physiology at Oxford University-was advised by his physician to take Sanatogen after an attack of Influenza. He did so, and afterwards wrote as follows in the Lancet: It is evident that Sanatogen acts as a Strong stimulus so far as the recuperative powers of the blood are concerned, and that a building- up process goes on in the nerves 11 His further observations are thus summarised in a resume of the Lancet articles Microscopic exam- ination demonstrates the increased vitality in the nervous system— especially in the cells of the brain and spinal cord-after feeding with Sanatogen Begin at once to reconstruct your health by the prolonged use of Sanatogen. Buy a tin at your chemist's to-day (from 2/3 to 10/9), but be sure you get real Sanatogen, which alone can produce these definite and assured results—results which will amply jrepay you for the twopence-halfpenny per dose that Sanatogen costs you.

A C. EAT SHIPPING COMPANY S WAR VJORK. It is interesting to record that the Canadian Pacific steamer the u Missanabie was the first steamer to sail on her maiden voyage froii tGreat Britain to Canada after the outbreak.. ot war, because when on or about the 3rd Decem- ber the" Minnedosa," belonging to the same Company, sails from Liverpool to St. John she will be the first stei^Tis^iip to sail on \her maiden voyage after Hostilities have ceased. The "Minnedosta" is a s'jsfer ship to the -"Melita" and has a tonnage of 14,000, speed .17 knots, and accommodation for approximately 500 cabin and 1,500 third-class passengers. The Canadian Pacific Ocean service have carried from the outbreak of hostilities to October 31st, 1918, no less than 1,041,000 troops and passen- gers' all over the world, embracing all ports in China and Japan, Singapore, Bombay, Meso- potamia, Suez, Gallipoli,. all ports in the Mediterranean, Colombo, Dar-es-Salaam, DeL- goa Bay, Durban, and Mauritus, in auctit on to the West Coast of North and South America .and the United States and- Canadian ports. The total loss of troops carried caused by .enemy action and irrespective of disease ha.s been eight in number. The Canadian Pacific fiag has flown in the "highest north," in lati- tude 72.30 N. On one consecutive continuous voyage one of the Company's vessels steamed F 28,441 miles. Over 4,000,000 tons of cargo and munitions of war have been carried in addition to many thousands horses and mules The losses of fleet have been comparatively small and ths is largely due to the great devo- tion of the officers and crews of the ships and the great pains taken by them in gun practice, anti-submarine work, signalling, station keep- ing in convoy, and so forth. Over 300 officers and engineers were found out of the Com- pany's service for the Royal Navy, one of whom Lt. R N. Stuart has won the D.S.O. and the V.C., whilst many others have received decora- tions and been mentioned in despatches.

Comforts for Fighters. THE GiiATlTUDE OF THE BELGIANS. The following are extracts from letters re- ceived by ii.b.M..tear from Aber. men serving auroau in acknowledgment of parcels;- totojier L. Uurney, it..N.-I tnmis the time LaÓ; come when we shall be back at dear oia Aber. after tour years of hard struggle. It is good, oi the Aber. people to think of us. jiecji.-a.fci. Fred iioiher, Saionica-Of all the parcels I have recieved from you this one is the most welcome. No doubt, you read of the wonderiui march of the 1st Serbian Army. We had to keep with them with supplies ana ammunition, so the land of regimental can- teens was far in the rear. From the news we have received to-day of Bulgaria, Turkey, and Austria asking for peace we are beginning to think it will soon be our turn for the final pack-up for Blighty. One of the pleasantest memories of the war in years to come will bs the way the folks at home stood by you to make your fund a success. I do not expect we shall be here much longer. Our drivers are busy taking the Serbs back to their homes. The latter are like school children off for an outing. They are excited in being taken back to their homeland, and make a great fuss of the boys when the latter stay in any of the villages. C.Q.M.S. S. Peake, Salonica-The cigs arrived while I was on the line of march at a place called Kavalla. This place was occupied by the enemy a month previous, but, owing to the terms of the convention, was evacuated by them. The Bulgars have been thoroughly beaten from a military point of view. The credit of the victory, which was equally shared by the Allies, was mainly due to the Serbs in the north. The Salonica Army was the first to start the ball roll"n.7 peace. I am pleased to say I ha ',l.; mtfercd nothing in the shape of fevers the three years I have been here and I feel as well a.s ever. Now I am looking to a speedy passage to England, my discharge, and a return to normal conditions. I have met only two Aber. boys. Sergt. R. Ellis, Italy.—I should have loved to be at old Aber a week last Monday. It was a glorious day everywhere. I am longing for flie time to return in order to thank you a glorious day everywhere. I am longing for flie time to return in order to thank you all fo • what you have done for the boys. It is not 1 much the va' cf the parcel we appreciate, but the fact that we are not, for- gotten by our fellow townsmen. I met Alf Williams, Stanley-road, last niglit. I was too busy to have a chat with him, but I hope to see him to-night. Bugler R. E. Jones, France—I am waiting for the time when all the boys will be able to return. I hope Aber. will erect a memorial hall in memory of the boys who have given their lives. I have an Aber. pal in my bat- talion-H. O. Jones, Llanbadarn-road, and we often have a talk about old Aber. I was •sorry to see that one of my pals had been killed—J. R. Edwards We used to play together for the Engineers. I think this will be our last Christmas out here. I wish the Y.M.C.A. the best of luck. I am proud to be a member of such an institution. Pte. B. Samuel, France—The parcel was waiting me on my return from leave. I am sorry to hear of so many people being ill. Thanks for the words of courage and com- fort which bring tis near to each=other. Pto J. Roderick Davies, France—We are at present in a neighbourhood which is in ruins. It is a very sad sight. There are no people here and therefore, we are not able to get anything as there is not even a Y.M. or a canteen in the place. We are glad the long- expected peace is in view; and we are looking forward. aft?r three long years of arduous and dangerous work, to return home at no distant date. Pte. A. S. Jones, France--I fail to find words to thank you and the kind people of Aber. for their kindness. Your little cards fill mo with joy. We have fought our battles to Lhe end, and have, at last, received our vic- tory; and I hope we shall soon be marching home winners of a fight never to be forgotten. We must not forget the brave Aber pals who have laid down their lives. In passing through the villages we see the wicked work of our beaten enemy. They even took boots from the women and children, and left them hungry. We keep smiling, and trust to be among you soon. Aber. beys will never forget K.S.M. Fear. Cymru am bytli. Pte. Hughie Humphreys, France—We are looking forward to coming home to Blighty as there is jj) place like it. I can tell you that what you have done for the boys has given them heart to fight. Signaller Walter Jones, France—What a glorious thne this is? Peace has come to stay for ever, and how suddenly it came? The Bel- gians weie dancing with ioy on being released, especially the aged, who were crying in their thanks to the men of Britain for their mighty effort in the great, cause of freedom which has gained its goal. We ended up near Mons. How historic! The mills of God grind slowly but small. The people of this town gave our General a great reception a few days ago,. but we must not forget the great men that have crossed 'the foremost line." When I come to compare my little bit with theirs I look upon it as a mere detail. Let us hope that the people who mourn them will receive abund- ance of spiritual consolation. We are in a nice farm at present, feeling fairly happy until we come home which may be soon, I hope. Thr villages around here have been left intact- quite a change. I thank you for your labours on my and all other men's interests. Trooper W. Lloyd, France-We were in ,iion when the cigs. arrived. We had been I .L-iaut a smoke for several days, and there were no hopes of getting any, so you can guess how welcome fiev were. The fighting is now over, thank G :d, and I am pleased I have come thro-io-h without a scratch. I am looking for- ward to coming home. I am pleased you are rr, rrransring for a band to give the boys a wel- come. Trumpeter A. Burbeck, France-Well, the final lis here, and thank God for it. We have longed for the day and prayed for the day. May He in His mercy grant us a speedy return home. I notice that there is a band being formed to give the lads a reception. It is a very good idea and T hope I shall be lucky enough to return soon. The b'oys will never forget you for your good work on their behalf. An acknowledgement has also been received from Pte T. M.

THE FIRST RHONDDA LECTURE TO BJ. DELIVERED BY DR. SALEEBY. From the Council on Public Morals informa- tion comes that it has been decided to have the first Rhondda lecture at Cardiff. It will be early in the New Year and the task of deliver- ing it has been entrusted to Dr. Saleeby, the well-known sociological expert. The subject of this annual lecture will be Aspects of Ministry of Health Work," and naturally it will be con- venient for Dr. Saleeby in the inaugural lecture to deal with general principles affecting health administration in this country. The lecture is being founded by the Council in memory of Lord Rhondda, and it is hoped to raise a fund of B20,000 which is now in process of collection. Already several handsome donations have been received, and the Rev James Marchant, F.R.S., who is acting as secretary and director, gives an assurance that the Society intends that Wales shall benefit peculiarly, as it should, from this new scheme.

Inadequate Pensions. PLEA FOR JUSTICE FOR DISCHARGED MEN. I. A public meeting under the auspices of the local branch cf Lktt Diseliargc(-i soldiers and Sailors Society was held at the town Ilali, Aberystwyth, ai iniday evcii-iig when an ad- die-:s on ie work of 1 e Society was given by capt. VVatkin .niliams, of Swansea, one 01 the young men that were piomoted from the lanks in the war. The chairman was Professor Da\id Wit liams, who was chaplain in the army 111 Pales- tine, and he gave an excellent, opening address Tiie object of the meeting, he said, was to promote the interests of tHe Society, to bring it to the notice of the citizens of Aberystwyth, and obtain their sympathy with its aims. The service given by our soldiers and sailors in the war spoke for itself, and any praise from him would be superfluous. A vast majority of the men had had '-heir careers cut in two by the war; and it was no easy matter, after a lapse of years, and, especially, after their experi- encEs, to get hold of the broken threads again, and bring them together. Some of the men, when war broke out., were settled down in their careers, in business and different crafts; others were in training for various occupations, and a large number had not settled upon any occu- pation—just out of their boyhood. And the difficult work the country had to do now was to reinstate all those men in the service of the country where they could be most useful; and he was sure it was the desire of the country that they should be reinstated without loss or sacrifice to themselves. There were plenty of good intentions on the matter in the country, and the object of the Society was to organise those good intentions in order that, they might not be forgotten-to keep the country to its goodwill towards the soldiers and sailors, and to avoid the possibility of them being forgotten. The men who had served the country so well in the war should be able to carry on the same work in the service of peace; and by organisa- tion they could help the Society in that re- instalment. The Society could do more; it could preserve and foster the comradeship that had been discovered in the war-the com- radeship and good fellowship that existed between the men in the trenches. It would be a thousand pities if those good qualities were lost now that peace had come; and the Society intended to preserve that spirit of comradeship, and to infuse the rest of society with it. Our difficulties in peace would be similar to our difficulties in the war and they could be met by infusing society with the influence of com- radeship. (Applause.) Captain Watkin Williams, in an eloquent address, pleaded for public support to the Society which, he said, had been formed to look after the immediate interests of discharged men, and the widows and orphans whose lives had become great tragedies-io see that the individual man and woman got the pensions they were enLtIed 1.0. A strong comradeship, the beginning of a fine social life, had grown up during the war, and he was anxious that the same comradeship should exist, now that the war was over. Discharged soldiers and sailors could not get anything of value from the State unless they had the co-operation of the British public. A great deal had been done already for the men, but a great deal more remained to b3 done. He was not there to criticise the work of the Ministry of Pensions. He knew it was difficult work; but he was bound to say that the Ministry often showed ignorance of the de- tails in the cases of discharged men; but. with the aid of the Society it had been able to work far more easily. However, there was still a great deal to do. Hard cash, he knew, would never meet the whole case-money would not give a man back his right arm, and the wealtli of a, Rockfeller could not replace a husband lost; but the Society could see to it that the sufferers did not need. The pensions granted were not sufficient. A pension of 27s. 6d. for a man totally incapacitated was inadequate; a man with a family could not exist cn it. Dur- ing the war there were arrangements with re- gard to rents. If a soldier's wife could not pay her rent the landlord could not turn her out. How long would that ar-rangement last? Of course, the landlord had a right to his rent, hut discharged man also had his rights, and if that provision were taken away it would go liai-,(l A-itli many. How could a man with a large family run a home on 27s. 6d. ? It could not be done. He and his family would have to go without sufficient food and clothing, and in the end would find himself in a hopeless bog. Again, the pension granted to a man who had II lost an arm was not sufficient; and he main- tained that awarding pensions regardless of

J PEACE-TIME SAVING Why it is still a patriotic duty KEEP on buying War Savings Certificates. It is still a duty you owe both to your country and to yourself. Your country still needs money. There are more than 7,000,000 men under arms. Think what it must cost to feed and clothe, and bring them safely home from every British Front between the frozen snows of Arctic Russia and the tropical shores of the Indian Ocean. Think of the cost of hospitals for the wounded, of pensions for the bereaved and the disabled. Think of the vast expense of bringing food to this country-of reorganising oui industries, of restarting our fighting men in civil life. All this has to be done out of the money lent by the people of this country. By investing in War Savings Certificates you will be helping forward the great task of creating that glorious future for which we are all hoping.

øœ.L.ii.e: 1 "'4< earning capacity was fundamentally wrong. The c rcumstancis of the pensioned i, an should be ascertained—whether he had any other in- come or was certain of employment. He had' read in the papers that day a speech by Sir Edgar Jones, stating that what the country wanted was suitable and well-paid work for the soldiers, and not bigger pensions; and that the Coalition were not going to make paupers of our gallant heroes. When would the people realise that a man who received his pension received nothing more thru his just due—what lie was entitled to as much as a Cabinet Min- ister was entitled to his salary? (Applause.) There was nothing pauperising in giving a man the pension he had earned;- and. in his opinion, pensions should be embodied in a Bill, and placed on the Statute Book. To obtain their rights discharged men must get the support of the public. The present pension scheme was inadequate; it was not good enough to expect the man who had risked his life to live the rest of his days in penury. Moreover, the case of the discharged soldier should be taken not on the lines of charity work but in the spirit 01 honourable fulfilment of reasonable obligation. (Applause.) Describing the soldiers' comrade- ship in the trenches—how the strong took the burdens of the weak—the speaker said that that spirit should prevail in the future. It would do more in reconstruction than any Cabinet, could do. The comradeship of the trenches must lead to the camaraderie of peace or disaster would follow disaster. Labour and capital must be drawn together, nd aJI sections of the com- munity must unite in the spirit of comradeship and .brotherhood. (Applause.) Mr. E. T. Felix, chairman of the local branch of the Society, moved the following resolution :I.l'hat this meeting of citizens ot Aberystwyth, including many discharged soldiers and sailors, while recognising the great efforts already made by the Ministry of Pen- sions, desires to point out to the Government that the provisions made are often inadequate; and requests that the Government take steps to raise the pensions for discharged men, widows and orphans." Mr. Felix gave an account of the Society's work in the town. In one case, he said, a sum of £34 wa-s collected to help the widow of a soldier that, had served his country in two wars. Several discharged soldiers were not justly treated. One man in the town, in- capable of following his occupation, received the poor pension of 8s. 3d a week. It was shameful. Mr. T. H. Edwards, N.S.R., who seconded the motion, said he was as keen that the dis- charged men should have justice as he was in sending them to the forces. It was a disgrace to suggest that pensions were pauperising. Dis- charged soldiers and sailors were as entitled to their pensions as Cabinet Ministers were entitled to their pensions on retirement or even more so. Cabinet Ministers had enjoyed home comforts, but the discharged soldiers and sailors had been away from those comforts. The pensions were not sufficient to keep body and soul together; and the public should support the Society, which was out for justice to these who had done their best for the country. (Applause.) The motion was carried unanimously The Chairman moved a vote of thanks to Capt. Williams for his address. Mr. Jack Edwards seconded. If reconstruc- tion were taken up in the spirit displayed by the speaker, he said, there would be no trouble about the future. If he had his way the-men who had given their services to the country would have a separate representation in Par- liament. Their influence would be to the ad- vancement of the country, and peace of the whole world. Capt. Williams said that although the spirit shown by Mr. Edwards was fine he did not like the idea of even a separate representation. His desire was to see the whole community united in the spirit of brotherhood. Mr. T. H. Edwards, N.S.R., made an appeal for the old rubber that the Ministry of Na- tional Service were collecting, the whole of the proceeds for the sale of same would be given to the Red Gross Society.
