Agonies of Sciatica, j One of Liverpool's Best- 1 known men describes how his torture was ended by Dr Williams' Pink Pills. Mr William Longridge is a retired police-sergeant who now holds a position of trmt in one of the principal banks in Liverpool. He is 55 years of age and was for many years connected with the Liverpool Police Force, from which ser- vice he has been pensioned oft. He re- ceived special awards from the Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society, and is a man highly respected throughout the city. Recently he was attacked by Sciatica in such an acute form that he was once confined to bed for five weeks and three days. He was completely cured by Dr Williams' Pink Pills, and he says :—' I have not felt any trace of Sciatica since." A SIMPLE CAUSE, H What was the cause of your com- plaint ? he was asked by a reporter who called upon him at his house, 354, Scotland-road, Liverpool. Simply through getting my feet wet," he replied. I first felt a shivering feeling coming over me, and this turned to slight symptoms of Rheumatism. Then I began to feel as if I was para- lysed in the lower extremities, and was unable to move without pains like hot needles running down my thighs and legs; these pains of Sciatica nearly drove me mad. When I attempted to walk I became so faint that I had to tnrn back home. My left leg became Mr. William Longridge Cured o' A cut Sciatica by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. almost useless, and at times swift pains shot right down to my feet. For hours I would roll and toss in bed through sheer torture, and beads of perspiration rolled off my forehead. Doctors prescribed all sorts of medicines, but I seemed to get worse. I then underwent a course of massage, but the Sciatic pains in- creased in fury. "My sister came to visit me and insisted that I should try Dr Williams' Pink Pills. My wife purchased some. and I took the doses regularly. I derived a little benefit and so continued the medicine. THE ONLY EFFECTIVE MEDICINE. Soon I made such improvement that I felt sure Dr Williams' Pink Pills were the only medicine to put me on my feet. In a few weeks I was able to get up. I could eat and digest my food, and then began to take exercise without feeling any after distress. My cure took place some months ago, and since then I have not felt any trace of Sciatica's pains. I was cured by Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and I feel it my duty to make known the wonderful curative powers of this medicine. I found that Dr Williams' Pink Pills re- stored my nervous system fd nourished and enriched my blood." W Victims of Sciatica need their veins filled with the New, Pure, Rich Blood supplied by Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, which have cured many of Sciatica, Rheumatism, Paralysis, St. Vitus' Dance, Gout, Neuralgia and Headaches. Only the genuine pills cure and substitutes should be refused be- cause they are worse than useless. The pills that have cured are Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People (seven words).

The BUILDING MATERIAL OF THE HUMAN BODY. Drugs Won'b Do. How Thousands of Pounds Are Thrown Away Every Year. All the most prevalent and fatal maladies now afflicting the human race are either di- rectly or indirectly traceable to a dietetic source. Therefore the proper assim- ilation of the food they eat is of paramount importance to every man, woman, and child. Vi-Cocoa taken regularly at breakfast and supper will do more to assure this than any medicine ever invented. No, medicines will not re plenish the system after the daily wasting of tissues; but Vi-Cocoa, which is neither a medicine nor a mere thirst- assuager, will do this when taken regularly. Vi-Cocoa is undoubtedly unsurpassed by any other Food-Bverage. Vi-Cocoa-a pac- ket of which can be obtained everywhere for the small sum of sixpence—is in a great measure self-digesting, and exceeds tenfold in nutrient and sustenant power any other food beverage, and it will steadily build up your body to a healthy condition, if taken regularly night and morning. ) Z3

BY "SPECTATOR." ASSOCIATION. South Wales and Mon. League. The Aberdare team journeyed to Cwmpark on Saturday to engage the locals in a match under the auspices of the above league. This is the first occasion on which an Aberdare eleven has been seen at Cwm- park, and a good crowd had aeeembled. The Darians were as selected, Joe Lewis partnering A If. Goodwin, while Shields (Pontlottyn) and Aitken (Cardiff) coupled "with Fred Griffiths, made up the half- back line. With such an experimental team and the home eleven at full strength, even the most enthusiastic Dare supporter did not hope to see the Darians victorious. Cwmpark are a warm lot. and not many weeks back nearly inflicted defeat on the redoubtable Ton Pentre, who figure as the Rhondda Champions. <2> <0- The ground was in a very bad state when C'wnipark kicked off. Yank Powell was soon in evidence after a smart run, but unfortunately for his side his shot struck the goal post. Fred Elson kicked out of danger, but the visitors returned to the attack, Tom Daniel and Joe Hoi- land doing- good service for Aberdare. Harry Jones, the home custodian, handled and drove the visitors back, and play was taken to the other end of the field. Dicky Jones tested Brownhill, and smart following up on the part of Llew Nash enabled the latter to hustle the ball out of the hands of the Dare custodian and send into the net. Smart work by Powell and a good centre saw Smith in possession, but the latter shot wide. A few minutes later the Aberdare centre forward drove in a good shot, which Harry Jones failed to clear. Half-time arrived with the scores one each. On the restart Aberdare attacked hot- ly, but they failed at the crucial moment, and Elson was allowed to clear. The game was played at a rare pace, both sides putting all their energies into their work. Alf Goodwin was in great form. 1 < foe Lewis, who was making his first ap- jearance in a first league game, also lid good work. The Dare forwards lost ,everal opportunities of scoring through L'rratic shooting. Nothing was added to the half-time score of one goal each.
BY HrGDDIED OAF." RUGBY. The Mountain Ash fifteen journeyed to Pontardawe on Saturday last, where they were entertained by the local prem- ier fifteen. Unfortunately, the Old Firm were poorly represented, Wynd- ham Jones and Dick Thomas being not- able absentees. At the outset, the Swan- sea Valley men became the aggressors. Pontardawe played finely, and would have scored on several occasions were it not for the sturdy tackling of the Moun- tain Ash forwards and backs. However, the homesters took advantage of the weakness of the Aberpennar men, and directly after the restart, Tom Lewis, the home inside half, got possession of the ball, and opened the scoring for his side in notching a try which Rapsey, his co-worker at half-back, improved upon. The Pontardawe backs had very few op- portunities owing to the finer heeling of the Mount forwards, whereas, the Aber- pennar backs were frequently in posses- sion, and they would have scored had they used a little more accuracy in giving and taking the ball. Taylor scored a capital try, which, however, was not con- verted. Give and take play followed, and the." Old Firm" were surprised to see the unfairness with which Mr. Samuel, the referee, gave his decisions. Johnny Thomas, the Mount full-back, gave a splendid display in retaliatory kicking, and Shaw, and Lloyd Jones also helped to keep the Swansea Valley men well out of their territory. <:><-><-> In the second half, the Pontardawe men forced matters by means of plenty of punting which gradually enabled them to reach the Mountain Ash 25. Evan Jones, who partnered Harry Thomas at half-back, made good openings, but al- though the "Old Firm had a free kick, they failed to make any tangible I use of it. The Mountain Ash men tried, hard to score, but the referee's queer de- cisions re the "offside" rule prevented them. On one occasion Lloyd Jones, the Mount centre, came away with a cleverly designed corkscrew run, which placed the defence on their mettle. He was in the act of scoring when Mr. Samuel, the re- feree, pulled him up for an alleged in- fringement. The final score read: Pont- ardawe, 1 goal; Mountain Ash, 1 try. <i> < £ > Next Saturday, Aberpennar will be en- tertained by Abertillery, the Monmouth- shire League Champions. The Mount men will have to undergo a great deal of training if they wish to win. By-the- way, it has become public property that the Old Firm" is in heavy financial straits, and that the gate receipts in the past few matches are not enough to meet expenses. Of course, the committee put it down to the counter attractions at Aberdare and Merthyr, but the free view which the public have of the games from the Penrhiwoeiber Road is, I believe, the cause. Something must be done now. Could not the Welsh Union give a help- ing hand? -<.9 <!>- The meeting between Newtown and Cefnpennar, styled the "local Derby," came off on Saturday last at the Moun- tain Ash Athletic Grounds. Newtown was fairly at full strength, but there were a few substitutes amongst the Cefn- pennar "All Blacks." The parties field- ed under the charge of Mr. J. Rees, W.R.U., Aberaman. At the outset, a great deal of exchange kicking took place, which ended in a series of bursts made by thu respective forwards. The Newtown pack excelled in quick heeling. Joe El. lery was seen to advantage in heading a bout of dribbling, yet nothing substantial accrued to either side. -<i> <!> Cefnpennar kept their opponents well out of their own territory, but it was impossible to check Ilea, who would have scored for Newtown had not the whistle sounded for a 'forward' pass. Cefn- pennar renewed their aggressive efforts, but both Francis and Webb were admir- ably safe in defence, and the Newtown men were next seen to pester the All Blacks" three-quarter line, and lies narrowly missed scoring once more. The Cefnpennar backs appeared to be entirely off colour with the exception of Ivor Bevan, who relieved his side at the very crucial moment when a score seemed im- minent The standard of play as shown by the sides was very poor indeed. New- town tried hard to score, but the sterling defence of the League Champions was too good to beat. Webb gave a glimpse of his true form as full-back for Newtown, and also as the newly selected League back as well. Evidently the Pennarites have learned a bit from past matches, for just before the conclusion, Dai Rogers, the Cefnpennar wing three- quarter, came away with a fine bit of opportunism, and scored a try for his side, which was, however, not converted. This won the game and the League points for Cefnpennar. <.> A great deal of discussion is centred on the respective merits of the three- quarter backs who have been selected by the committee of the Aberdare and Dis- trict League. Personally, I am of the opinion that as far as the forwards are concerned, the sides will be equally matched, yet I am uncertain as to whether the Aberdare League backs will beat the Rhondda rear department in speed and tackling. I have great confi- dence in the home half-backs. <■> <•> The Rhondda League fifteen will be: — Back, J. Webber (Cambrian Boys); three- quarter backs, J. N. Jones (Trebanog), T. John (Cambrian Boys), H. Potter (Ponty- pridd United), and J. Hughes (Tvlors- town); half-backs, S. Lodwig (Cambrian Boys) and Curnow (Pontypridd United); forwards, T. Gibbon (Trebanog-), Po- meroy (Treorky Reserves), D. Lewis (Blaenllechau), C. Rees (Trebanog), R. Wise (Treorky Reserves), D. P. Bennett (Lewis-Merthyr), W. Williams (Cambrian Boys), and H. Scrivens (Pontypridd United). The Welsh Union will ap- point the referee. The following will represent the Aberdare and District League:—Back, Webb (Newtown); three- quarter backs, D. R. Morgan and Ivor Bevan (Cefnpennar) and W. Sage and Dan England (Newtown); half-backs, Evan Davies (Aberaman) and Sid Fran- cis (Newtown); forwards, Joe Ellery, H. Fortt, and Blacker (Cefnpennar), Harry Miles and Phil Richards (Aberaman), Parry, Dai Davies, and W. Williams (Newtown). ASSOCIATION. The match between the Aberdare Schoolboys' League and the Cardiff Schools' League—2nd Round of the Eng- lish Schools' Cup Competition—created a great deal of interest, and a large crowd assembled at the Athletic Grounds to witness the fray. Unfortunately, the Dare representatives of the League were ,rr fatly handicapped in size and weight, which partly foretold the issue. Never- theless, both sides were well represented, and the players lined out under the superintendence of Mr. H. Peach, Barry, in the following order: -Cardiff: Goal, Thomas; full-backs, Williams and Ros- ser; halves, Powell, Thomas, and Wood- man; forwards, Keenor, D. Evans, Lathey, Griffiths, and Oran. Aberdare: Goal, Davies; backs, Davies and Jeans; halves, Evans, W. Stephens (capt.), and Thomas; forwards, Griffiths, Oliver, Davies, Rosser, and Etans. -o < In the initial stages of the game, the Cardiffians became the aggressors by reason of lengthy kicking which the home back3, however, neutralised by means of some plever play. The Citizens again stormed the home lads' territory, and Davies, the home 'goalie,' had occasion to check a long shot very cleverly. The home boys subsequently took a hand in the attacking, which was the outcome of clever passing, which completely mysti- fied the Citizens. It was a pleasing spectacle to witness the little Dare lads beat their bigger opponents for possession of the ball, and despite the retaliatory efforts of the Cardiffians, their defence was continually being beaten, and were it not for the able saving of the visitors' burly goal-keeper, several good goals would assuredly have been scored by the home bo vs. -0- < £ > When the Darians arrived into their opponents' territory, one of the Cardiff backs caused his side to be penalised for an infringement within the "area," so a penalty" was allowed to the home- sters. Billy Stephens (Blaengwawr), captain of the home side, took the kick, which Thomas, the Cardiffians' goalman, received into his hands, and allowed the ball to bounce back into play. Stephens saw his one and only chance, and with a terrific shot, he succeeded in scoring a clever goal for his side. On the restart the visitors attacked the homesters strenu- ously, and succeeded in conceding a corner, but one of the home half-backs steered the ball safely out of danger. The Cardiff boys then tried some pot shots at goal, but the home defence was intact. Later, the Darians gained some more tangible ground by short passing, but the Cardiff backs were then too powerful for them. In the interval the Aberdare lads led by a goal to nil. ■<$> -<•> In the second moiety Oran scored an equalising goal for ihis side, and Keenor added a second one. The Dare boys suc- ceeded in forcing a corner, which they, however, failed to make any use of. Lathey afterwards netted 2 goals, and Thomas added another for Cardiff. Still, the home lads continued to play up pluckily, and everyone of them put his utmost into the proceedings, but their opposing backs were too powerful. The homesters were also disheartened by the queer decisions which the referoo. gave whenever a score seemed imminent. This aroused the ire of the spectators, who gave vent to their feelings with vigorous booing. Oran added another goal for the visitors. Towards the end, Stephens, the :home centre half, enabled his for- wards to make further raids upon the visitors' goal, but Williams, Powell, and Rosser were always prominent for the Cardiffians in defenoe, whilst Oran, Keenor, and Evans were conspiouous in the front line. In mid-field play as well as in front of goal, the Dare boys were always seen to immense advantage, and Evan Daviee, Oliver, and Evans were not lacking in dash. Thomas, the home custodian, played a fairly good game all through, and just before time Lathy scored agiain for Cardiff, who thus won by 7 goals to 1. <? -<!> <:? As the referee and players emerged from the field to the dressing room, the former was hooted all the way through the town, and had it not been for the timely interference of a guardian of the peace, he would have been roughly treat- ed. So this was the termination of the H grate fite" for the English Schoolboys' Cup Contest. <§> At Carter's Field, Hirwain, on Satur- day last, the Hirwain eleven entertained the Merthyr Law Courts XI., when a. strenuously contested game culminated in a draw of 3 goals each.—The League match between Abernant and the Aber- aman Excelsiors, which was played on the same day at the Nant men's ground, was warmly waged from the start to the finish. The Abernant players gave the Aberaman backs as much aa they could do to defend their citadel. In the open, the respective forwards were about on par, and a good game culminated in a goal each.—The Gadlys Stars engaged the Dowlais Albions at the Park on Satur- day last in a home fixture, when a rather one-sided game resulted in another vic- tory for the ever-oonquering Gadly,s men by 3 goals to nil. Joe Thomas and Geo. Thomas, the inside and outside lefts, re- spectively, scored two of the goals, whilst one of the Albions' backs miskicked into his own net the other goal. < £ > < £ > At the Park on the same day, the Tre- cynon Rovers and Abernant Excelsiors met in a friendly engagement, when a very interesting game culminated in a pointless draw. The Rovers are a pro- mising young junior organization, and have some clever players.—There was quite a plethora of drawn matches played the same day at varioua places. The Cwmbach United entertained the Cwm- bach Crescents at the Ynyscynon Grounds, when a pointless draw was also the issue.—In the match between the Tre- cynon Windsors and their Reserves, played at the Park, the premier eleven emerged the winners by 3 goals to nil.— The Aberdare Thursday Juniors met and eventually defeated the Cwmbach Thurs- days by the score of 5 goals to 1. This matcih was played at the Park.—Miskin United were entertained by the Merthyr Lilywhites on Saturday last, when a rather poor game ended in a runaway victory for the Lilies by the score of 7 goals to 1! <-> Next Saturday will witness the real Derby match in connection with the local League, when the Aberaman Stars and the Aberaman Excelsiors will meet to decide the supremacy of the district once more.—Joe Lewis, the ex-captain of the Aberdare Crescents A.F.C., assisted the Aberdare Town Soccer Eleven last Saturday in their League match at Cwm- park. Joe deputised Boulton, who was asked to stand down, and gave a very good account of himself. Yet he received some rough handling at the hands of some of the Cwmpark forwards.—Cefn Albions entertained the Cwmbach Stars on the same day, when the Cwmbach constellations won by 2 goals to nil.
ABERCYNON FOOTBALL NOTES. BY "QUIZ." On Saturday last Abercynon 2nds. were at home to St. Saviour's. Cardiff. The Saints are a smart lot, and are in the Cardiff Junior Football League. The teams lined out in the following order:- Abercynon: Full-back, Watkins; f-bacis, G. Currie, Joe Lewis, A. Collins, W. Harding (captain); i-backs, Hugh Jones and Dai Rees Morgan; forwards, A. Jaynes, Charles Thomas, Jack Thomas, W. Richards, W. Edwards, W. Jenkins, Wallie Watkins, Ted Lewis. St. Saviour's: Full-back, W. Morgan (capt.), 3-backs, J. Farmer, Edgar Little, J. Skaine, T. Cooper; -backs, Ivor Wil- liams and T. Notley; forwards, Sherwell, Archie Parsons, A. Parsons, Hicks, Dai Walters, W. Walters, Blackmore, and Another. Referee, Mr. Fred Sollish, Car- diff. The Saints won the toss and de- cided to play against the wind. A return into touch brought play into mid-field, and from a scrum, Hugh Jones procured the leather, and passed out to Morgan, who handed to Lewis. Here Little re- lieved the Saints by a long kick into touch. The Saints forwards were excel- lent in the open, and brought play well inside the Cynon quarters. Again and again they pressed, but the home defence was sound. Currie picked up, and by an excellent run, relieved his side by a kick, which the visiting custodian mulled. Play was again centred in the Saints' quarters. The Cynonites exhibited some fine bouts of passing, Joe Lewis being very prominent. Notley saved by a kick. Hugh Jones made a fine opening, but was hauled down near the line. The Saints attempted passing, and with a rush by the forwards, play settled in the home half. Cooper made a fine burst, but was pulled down right on the line. Half- time score: -Abercyno-n 2nds, nil; St. Saviours, nil. Jaynes commenced the second moiety, and play eentred in mid- field. The Saints again tried to pass, but Joe Lewis intercepted. D. Morgan made a burst, but without effect. The home forwards brought play inside the Saints half. The Saints by some loose kicking managed to relieve the pressure, and by some fine dribbling resulted in Notley crossing the line in semi-darkness. The kick for goal failed.
