Those under the care of Lampeter Guardians and those who are expected to give a child a decent Christmas on Is. 6d. extra may be par- doned if they think that the Board might do well to leave the question of the Kaiser's head to Marshal Foch and see that the poor of Car- diganshire get what they should on the first peace Christmas. Some of these little ones who are to receive the magnificent eighteen pence have fathers lying in soldiers' graves in France. They did something to smash Kaiserism —something besides talk, and their children's reward is Is. 6d. Shame! DOLGELLEY RURAL. The boys who return from France will know how to deal with councillors who expect women and children to live in unfit houses and who argue that these houses are better than the trenches."

The Comptroller and Auditor-General, Mr. H. J. Gibson, in his report, has some strong com- ments on the accounting system of the Ministry of Munitions. In one instance, out of a sum of £38,098,590 for materials supplied by the Ministry, £15,885,562 represents materials for which no invoices were received. After the accounts had been certified by a firm of char- tered accountants, the factory accountant re- cently discovered an error to the extent of over £ 3,000,000 in respect of the value of materials supplied by the Ministry. Yet they talk of mak- ing the Ministry permanent." THE WELSH HOUSING ASSOCIATION.

MR. CLAN CRIFFITHS. His many friends in Aberystwyth and West Wales will much regret to hear of the death of Mr. Glan Griffiths who passed away in active work a few days ago. Mr. Griffiths, who was a brother of Mr. T. Griffiths, "Tivyside Advertiser," Cardigan, was a Swansea boy, for some years was secretary of the Swansea Y.M.C.A., and assisted in the great campaign for the new Y.M.C.A. building in the town. During this campaign his health failed and he retired from the work. At the outbreak of war he took up difficult: duties with the troops at Brecon, undergoing all the hardships of the 1914 rush. During the following winter he was stationed at Aberyst- wyth, where he had charge of the Rink; and when the troops left the town he took over the organisation of the North Wales area. His ex- perience brought him to the notice of the leaders I in Y.M.C.A. work, and he was chosen to go to Switzerland to open the first hut for repatriated and invalided soldiers at Leysian. The climatic conditions brought about a considerable im- rovement in his health, and he returned early this year to Wales to take charge of the Mid- Wales area and to organise work for the wounded and prisoners of war. In August Mr. Griffiths lectured at Aberystwyth to a large audience on his experiences in Switzerland, and he then seemed to be in better health than had been the case for some years. His trouble had been tuberculosis and against this he had main- tained what his friends were hoping would prove to be a successful fight. His death was quite unexpected and general sympathy will be ex- tended to his mother and relatives, his father having died some eighteen months ago. MISS ALICE BEATRIX FELLOWES After short but a severe illness the death took place on Monday, of M.ss Alice Beatrix Fellowes, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs George Fellowes, confectioners, Terrace-road Aber- ystwyth. Deceased who was eighteen years of age was held in high esteem by all who knew her. She had been educated at the National Scbool, Aberystwyth, and also in a Higher Grade School in London. As a faithful member and a Sunday School tcacher at Holy Trinity Church, Miss Fellowes will be much missed by a large circle of friends. The funeral will take place on Friday morning at 12 o'clock. The deepest sympathy is felt with the bereaved family I COLONEL P. E. VAUGHAN, D.S.O. The death occurred in London fiom pneumonia of Colonel Philip Edmund Vaughan, D.S.O., Worcestershire Regiment, youngest son of the late Captain Herbert Vaughan, of Brynog, Car- diganshire. Colonel Vaughan was wounded in France two years ago and after recovery from his wounds filled a post in the Munitions Depart- ment. He leaves a widow and two young sons. MR. and MRS. H. SEDDON The death occurred on Sunday, after a brief illness of barely a week's duration, of Mr. Henry Seddon, finance clerk under the Cardi- ganshire Education Committee. He appeared at the Education Office on Monday morning 2nd December, but not feeling well returned to his house and to bed. Double pneumonia set in and he passed away on Sunday afternoon at the age of thirty-three years. He was a native of jeign. Mr. Seddon came to Aberystwyth nearly six years ago as finance clerk to the Education Committee. Previous to that he had been for over eig t years education finance I clerk in the accountant's department in the borough of Leigh. He proved himself a capable official and did credit to the education service. I He was not a man who courted publicity or praise, but no one could come into contact witil him without feeling that he was a man of ster. ling worth and one of nature's gentlemen. He was well-known in Aberystwyth as an efficient teacher of shorthand and book-keeping and taught those subjects with remarkable success at the evening classes provided under the Science and Art Committee. The classes werg never so successful as under his teaching and there are many boys and girls who have secured good positions as a result of the training. His loss will be keenly felt by the Director of Education and his colleagues at the Education Office^ as well as by members of the Educa- tion Committee, and especially by the teachers, with whom he was a great favourite, by reason of his uniform consideration and courtesy. Like so many who choose to pass their life in the sequestered vale rather than in the glare of pub- licity, he had rare qualities of devotion, fidelity, and truth in word and deed. j One who never turned his back, but marched breast forward, Never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worst-ed, wrong would triumph, 1 Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, Sleep to wake. Feeling reference was made to the sad event at a meeting of the Aberystwyth District Educa- tion Committee on Monday last when the follow- ing resolution was passed on the motion of Coun- cillor Percy Wilkinson, chairman: That the Committee hears of the death of Mr. H. Seddon, finance clerk, with the deepest regret, and desires to express its appreciation of his faithful and devoted service and its deepest sympathy with the relatives in their bereavement." On Monday night the death followed of Mrs Seddon, leaving two orphaned children. The deepest sympathy of the whole town is expressed with the bereaved families.

PiUiS CAN BE CUKED ¡ WITHOUT AN OPERATION I OR MONEY BACK FROM YOUR OWN CHEMIST. Thousands of readers who suffer the aeut* af,jc,ny and debilitating effects of mle<s. hae nor -iioids pruritus, etc., will be greatly iiite-.eited to know that these afflictions can now be cured without resorting to the knife and all its pain, danger, and uncertainty of permanent results. It was once said by a prominent medical man I that such operations are often like pruning a tree. They stop the growth in one place only to promote it in a dozen others. A well-known Loadon consulting chemist and expert in analytical work devoted most of his time for nearly a year to research and experi- ments with a view to perfecting a cure for eczema and other serious skin diseases. Not only did he discover a soothing antiseptic, and non-astringent ourative compound which was amazingly efficient in banishing skin aifec- tdons by correcting their cause, but this com- pound, known as Nemolin, has now been found to possess remarkable curative powers when applied to piles. Heretofore pile treatments have consisted of powerful astringents, which gave only temporary results, since by shrinking the tissues and blood vessels they merely in- creased the congestion which is the primary cause of all piles, etc. Nemolin has just the opposite effect. It stimulates the local blood circulation, so all pain, itching, burning, and smarting stops, congestion is entirely dispersed, and affected parts almost immediately return to perfectly normal and healthy condition. Nemolin can be obtained of all chemists. NOTE.—An interesting treatise on the action erf Nemolin in, cases of cJhrcxnic opiles,) Jetc., written by the eminent chemist referred to in the above article, will be sent prepaid to any- one sufficiently interested to enclose a penny stamp for the return postage.
