One day someone advised me to try 'Clarke's Blood Mixture,' and after taking two bottles I could see a great difference, so I continued with it, and after taking the third bottle it had dis- appeared. I was quite run down, weak, and very tnin, but as soon as the abscess had healed I began to fill out again." Abscesses, Ulcers, Bad Legs, Glandular Swellings, Eczema, Boils, Pimples, Sores and Eruptions, Piles, Rheumatism, are all sure signs of clogging blood impurity, calling for immediate treatment through the blood (outward application is of little use). For cleansing the blood of its impurities there is no other remedy just as good as Clarke's Blood Mixture. That is why so many remark- able cures stand to its credit. Pleasant to take, and free from anything injurious. Ask for and see you get Clarke's Blood Mixture "EVERYBODY'S BLOOD PURIFIER."

Rees, i'eter Vaughan, ,John Lumley, T. Paisons, T. H. Evans, Evan Humphreys, Griffith Thomas, T. R. Morgan, Edward Jones, Edmund Gillait (clerk), and J. Humphreys (surveyor). Mr. Peter Vaughan asked what arrangements iiad been d_>ne with regard to weleomng t..e b„ys home. He thought the Council and not out- siders should take the matter up. Other coun- cils had arrangements well in hand. 'The Charman said he was glad the matter was raised, and firmly believed it was the Coun- cil's duty to carry it through by holding a pub- lie meeting when the townspeople could give their opinions on the matter. Mr. T. Parsons said it was time that they took action as the lads would be home soon. It was decided to arrange a public meeting to get the suggestions of the townspeople on the I, best way to celebrate the event. HOUSING SCHEME. Terms were received from landowners for land for the new housing scheme. Mr. John Micah's terms for Cae Crwn were considered very reasonable— lOd. per square yard. Sir W. Wynn's agent offered an excellent piece of land at £ 100, Mr. Evan Humphreys stating that. it was the best offer—about 2d per square yard. The owner of Caebach was willing to sell at £ 225. The land included two gardens and coppice. Cae Jones was offered at 2s. 6d. per square vard. Mr. John Lumley offered a piece of land, warehouse and stable for £150. It was decided to ask Dr. Davies and Lord ) Herbert Vane Tempest for their prices. The Chairman thought they should have an archi- tcct to survey the land for sites, but several members did not think an architect was needed at the present stage. The Clerk said he had received a letter from Mr. Yale, Pwllheli, stating that the Local Gov- ernment Board required an architect to send in a report on the sites chosen before they could consent to the building of houses. The regula- tion were that only 12 houses were to be built in an acre thus allowing plenty of room for a substantial garden. The matter was adjourned.
BARMOUTH. M D writesIn view of the many schemes already in progress for erecting memoriais to our fallen heroes, may I suggest that the donations would be spent to better advantage if, instead of each village or town erecting their local memorial, they all combined their efforts and built a cottage hospital to be situated in the neighbourhood of Barmouth Each town or village could endow a ward or beds the number varvine according to their subscriptions, which could bear the name of district which gave them. In my opinion, a hospital is a very great neces. sity in this locality, as in case of any serious accident or illness there is no place of that kind within reasonable distance. For instance, how beneficial would a hospital have been during the present epidemic of influenza. I feel sure ail must agree that this would be a most suitable memorial to those who have made the supreme ^The death took place on Saturday, after a short illness, of Mr. Humphrey Lloyd Lewis, Brynteg, at the age of forty-two years.

MACHYALLETH. On Thursday, at Pitsea Congregational Church a memorial service' was held to tne Rev. Ei'nlvn H. Davies, B.A., B.D., and a com- munion service; was dtdicated in his memory. In. the unavoidable absence, through illness, of Professor Archibald Dalies, M..A., B.D. an in- timate friend of the deceased, the Rev. Stan y 1. Blomfield, of Upmnster, presided. The Chairman referred to ihe friendship which ex- isted between himself ind the late Rev Emlyn Davies, and aid it must be a joy to their departed friend to know in the presence of his Lord that his work was still going on. The Rev Mr Griffiths, represeniing the London Mission- ary Society; said the deceased gentlemen was one of his greatest friends, and they lived together at Bangor fo" three years as students They both decided to become missionaries and he (the speaker) went to Madagascar, and the deceased went to India, where, after a few years of work, his health gave way. He then, came to Pitsea to be their minister; then went to Malmesbury, and from there to France. He there contracted disease-which caused his death. Eight days after his demise the German ofWn- sive took place, and they occupied the spot where he was buried. When, however, tb. British advance swept the Germans back, the grave was discovered all right. The Rev. A. D | Beldeja, of Crowstone Congregational Church, also spoke. Mr. Davies was a fine scholar and distinguished student and always had a passion for evangelizing which, at the close of his Col- lege days, resulted in him going to India as a missionary. Mi\ Belden referred to the courage of" Mrs. Davies in journeying from Abertillery, South Wales, with her little ones in order to be j present at that service. At the close of his I address Mr. Belden unveifed the communion, j table and chair, the whole of the congregation standing meanwhile. The hymn, "How blest Those Glorious Spirits Shine" was then sung and the Chairman closed the meeting with prayer. The communion table and chair are the work of Messrs. F. Garon and Son, Southend, and of beautiful workmanship; the chair, which is of Glastonbury style, being finely carved. The in- scription on both the table and chair is Sacred to the memory of the late Rev. Emlyn H. Davies, B.A., B.D., minister of this church from September 1909, to September, 1915, who died in France on 17th March, 1918, while engaged in Y.M.C.A. work with the Indian and British troops."

The 7Master said the tramps called at the Workheuse and they were admitted and worked next day. -The matter was adjourned for a month, as the Guardians thought that key would be falLng back to the old custom if the allowed tramps in for nights, A letter was read from Lewisham Union asking the Guardians to send a resolution to the Premier that the ex-Kaiser be extradited for trial.-Tlie letter was left on the table, Mr. R. C. Evans remarking that the matter was not their business. It was decided to grant 3s. for bed-ridden cases, 2s. for adults, and Is. for children as extra Christmas relief. Mr. R. C.

Mr. John Richards, Pencarreg, was appointed rate collector of Talyllyn, in the position of the la.te Mr. David Owen
Welsh Church Act. I THE PREMIER'S POSITION. The official report of the interview between Mr. Lloyd George and the Welsh Free Churches Council deputation having been so brief, inquiry has been made of the Rev. D. Davies, Penarth, who was one of the represent- atives of that Council. Mr. Davies said:- "The report already supplied to the Press was prepared and carefully worded with the approval of the Prime Minister, and sub- sequently checked and issued to the press 'by his Secretary and ours. Therefore nothing can sequently checked and issued to the press 'by his Secretary and ours. Therefore nothing can be added to the two points of agreement be- tween the Premier and the deputation already published officially." 1. But is this agreement simply with Mr. Lloyd George, or is it understood that his assurances carry with them the approval of his colleagues, in case of the Coalition Govern- ment is returned to power?" asked the inter- viewer. "On that point," replied Mr. Davies, "it would be no breach of confidence to say that the Prime Minister was asked that very ques- tion, and he very emphatically replied that his colleagues would unanimously endorse his views on these questions. There had been, he said, only one dissentient, namely, Lord Robert Cecil, who held strong views to the contrary and who therefore honourably, although with regret, withdrew from the Coalition Cabinet." "Then I take it that. this is a pact of the future programme of the Coalition Govern- ment if returned to power?" "Certainly, and no one can be a Coali- tionist, in the sense that the Coalition Cabinet attach to the term, unless he votes for these two points. Anvone who opposes the Welsh Church Act remaining intact upon the Statute Book, and the Church and County Councils, after due investigations, being com- pensated for such injuries as may be sustained by them financially through the abnormal circumstances arising from the war, cannot be a Coalitionist. It is. therefore, not only true that in view of these assurances (given by Mr. Lloyd George, in his own name and those of his colleagues) there will be no elec- tion issue on these points other than confirm- ing them with each candidate by the Noncon- I formists, but also that there can be no election issue on these points by any Conservative or Churchman who professes to be loyal to the Coalition Government. By so much the atmos- phere has certainly been cleared. I can only hope that the Premier's assurances on the drink traffic to the appointed deputation will be as explicit and satisfactory." "What was your impression as to t.ho tude of the Prime Minister towards the depu- tation?" "The deputation thanked the Premier for the candid, outspoken and courteous way in which he received us and discussed the various points which were raised: and as one who has taken a very pronounced view of the dis- establishment and dissendowment of the Welsh Church, and of what appeared to me to be the inadequate pronouncement of Mr. Lloyd George of late on the disendowment phase of the nuestion. I unhesitatingly and gratefvlly en- dorse that vote of thanks." 11
