Pontygwaith. After a most excellent and success- ful session, the Debating Society ended the session with a grand tea and concert. Nearly a hundred, mostly members, partook of the nice things laid on the tables. The lady mem- bers of the Society are to be congratu- lated for their perseverance during the winter months, and no doubt the success of the Society depends greatly to the interest they have taken and also for the help given. The following ladies superin- tended at the tables: -Misses J. and A. Rees, Misses M. A. Owen and G. Wil- liams, Misses M. Davies and M. J. Powell, Misses M. and B. Davies. After the tea, a splendid programme was gone through including the following: —Piano- forte solo, Mr. Haydn Matthews; recita- tion, Mr. Gwyn Hughes; Welsh speech, by Mr. Baxter, a Scotchman, on the Miners' Eight Hours Bill, which evoked roars of laughter. Afterwards, Mr. Owen, Llanwonno, gave a mouth-organ solo, and Mr. John James related a few humorous incidentsi in his life. A song, The Anchor's WeighedJ." by Mr. Matthews, followed by a song by Mr. W. Williams, Cash Stores, ended this part of the pro- gramme. The Revs. W. Williams and J. Evans thaifked the officers and all who had taken part for the excellent way in which the Society had been conducted, and hoped that the young men of the locality would benefit therefrom. Mr. Sydney Rees, who was elected "Member of Parliament at one of the meetings, also gave a short report of his work in Par- liament. A vote of thanks to the chair- man and president of the Society, Mr. D. D'avies (schoolmaster), proposed by Mr. P. Hughes, and seconded by the secretary, ended a pleasant evening and session. --+-- Last Sunday and Monday, Seion (C.M.) held their annual preaching festival. The Revs. J. H. Howard, Cwmavon, and T. H. Jones, Goppa., officiated. The sermons were of a high character, whilst the sing- ing was also, of a high standard.

Lewis, 43, Gilfach Road Tonyrefail. Nov. 25, 1908. It gives me the greatest pleasure to testify to the curative properties of E'll-Wel. For fully 4 years I suffered terribly with Eczema and great SAvellings in my feet. I could not wear stockings of any kind, but had to wrap linen around my feet, which I had to change three and four times a day, owing to discharges. I tried many ointments without success. I therefore gave E'll-Wel a trial, and am pleased to say that I had relief with the first application, and two boxes effected a complete cure, that being eight months ago.. There Is now no sign of it recurring again. I:> Yours gratefully, E'll-Wel will cure your skin trouble whatever it may be-Boils, Burns, Pimples, Piles, Ringworm, sores, Itch, Chilblains, etc. When applied to a bad place, its healing virtues go straight to the cause of the trouble, thereby effecting a complete cure quickly.

Haggett, collier, employed at Locket's Merthyr Colliery. Prisoner had been entrusted with prosecutor's pay- ticket, and having received the cash, Went to Bristol, where he was arrested. Prisoner, who acknowledged the offence, Was sentenced to two months' hard labour. MATRMONIAL INTERLUDES. Wm. Henry Squires, collier, T'reher- .txJ.rt, was summoned by his wife for per- sistent cruelty. Mr. M. 1. Walters, soli- citor, Treherbert, appeared for com- plainant, and Mr. Jenkins (of Messrs. aUt^ Pontypridd) +« that she was married nine years ago, and there Ufi11 en the marriage. Defen- tba+ r three months ago, and since toward11116!, only contributed £ 2 5s. "er maintenance. Detailing wi+vf cruelty on her husband's part, that her whole married life ~een rather unhappy. He knocked I about badly, and one night before he eryh r' a^ter they, had gone to bed, he got out, and going into his trousers ?° sa^d he would cut off her head, .that man did in Abertridwr," On another occasion he said that he would put her head on the mantelpiece clock &nd arrange her hair to fall down on each side of the timepiece. Complainant attri- buted her husband's conduct to the influ- ence of his and declared that was quite willing to return to him if would get away from his family. Complainant was subjected to a very severe cross-examination at the hands of Mr. Jenkins. She vigorously denied that she and her husband had lived a very happy life until she took to drink. She also denied that she had been seen in the public street in a semi-nude condition, and had to be carried in to hei* own house by her brother, or that she had been in the habit of selling coal to get drfnk. After corroborative evidence had been given by neighbours as to certain marks upon complainant's face, # which they attributed to defendant's violence, defen- dant stepped into the witness-box and gave evidence on his own behalf. He said that he lived very happily with his wife until about eighteen months ago, when she took to drink. After that it was his common experience to come home from work and find her drunk, and utterly unable to prepare his meals. On the day she left him, she was drunk, and after he had prepared his own and chil- dren's food, she disappeared. e Questioned with regard to the incident when he was alleged to have gone to his trousers pocket and threaten to cut off her head, defendant caused roars of laughter by declaring that these were the sort of things she saw when in booze." Mr. T. P. Jenkins said that the Bench were perfectly satisfied the woman was of drunken habits, and the husband's threats were perhaps directed more to frighten her than anything else. She was not a proper mother; she neglected her children, and the Bench thought it advis- able that the two elder "children should be given to the custody of the father. He, however, did not think it proper to take the baby out of her charge. Under the circumstances he would not make a separation order, but he would order defendant to pay 7s. 6d. a week towards the maintenance of his wife and child. DRUNKS. Wm. Edwards, Gilfach Goch, 15s.

1 Fell Over a Precipice. [ Rhondda Labourer's Death. The adjourned inquest on the body of Edward Owen, labourer, Treherbert, was held on Tuesday morning, 2nd inst., at the local police station. It will! be remembered that the deceased was found at the bottom of a^cliff on the Penpych Moun- tain. Mrs. Unitt, with whom the man -lodged, was called, and stated that Owen was a man of sober habits. He took his food with him to work the last time she saw him, and had a candle which he used in his employment. He had a wife and eight children, the eldest being twenty. He left home at .8.30, and was seen by the engineman connected with the Rhondda Council's waterworks at 9.40 p.m., buit not alive afterwards. G. Furlong, foreman for Messrs. Treglown, contractors, produced a photo indicating the spot where the body was found. When employed, deceased was given instructions as to the way he was to approach his work. On the night when he was last seen by the engineman he was lateJ, and had evidently taken a short cut to the face of the tunnel, where his shift commenced, by a tram-road used to convey materials. There were no trams running at the time which would make it necessary for him to turn aside. The Coroner (Mr. R. J. Rhys), review- ing the evidence, said it was more satisr- factforiy than at the Jiast hearing. It proved that the man was sober when he went to work. He had received injuries by the fall over the precipice, which was a natural one and not fenced. The evi- dence of Dr. Hinde on Saturday was that death was due to exposure. The injuries might have dazed the unfortunate man, but, recovering, there was a possibility of his having placed his coat under his head, and eventually^ succumbing. A verdict of "Accidental death," was returned.
Presentation Meeting at Blaenclydach. P.C. and Mrs. Evans Honoured. A Presentation Meeting was held at Gosen Vestry, Blaenclydach, on Thurs- day afternoon, March 4th, to present P.C Joseph Evans, formerly of Blaen- clydach, with an address upon his departure from the district to Pontypridd, as an appreciation of his services during his four yeans stay in the district. A marble clock was also presented to Mrs. Evans, with the fol- lowing inscription: "Presented Mrs. J. Evans, on her leaving Tonypandy, by her many friends and well-wishers, Feb. 25th, 1909." Mr. J. W. Richards, Tonypandy, presided, and said that the object of the meeting was to present Mr. and Mrs. Evans with these handsome and costly presents. The inhabitants of Blaen- clydach and Court Street had thought it necessary, with their accustomed readi- nessi and generosity, to bestow upon them these gifts as a mark of their esteem, regard and goodwill on leaving the dis- trict. He said that the committee regret- ted very much the necessity of holding the ceremony in the afternoon, knowing the time to be very unfavourable and most inopportune for a representative gathering such as rlhey should like to have had. It was their intention and desire to make the gathering a big suc- cess, and to have sent their friends away with a great flourishing of trumpets, as it were, and make the occasion worthy of the place and the recipients. But this was prevented because there was no cen- trally situated room available, and there was no alternative, unfortunately, but to hold it in the afternoon, otherwise the attendance would have been greater. Mr. G. Williams, the secretary, read out a few letters of apology for inability toi attend containing words of congratulation to Mr and lVIrs. Evans. Mrs. Walters, headmistress of the Blaenclydach Infants' School presented the clock to Mrs. Evans, and said that they had known Mrs. Evans as a good neighbour and that they appreciated the good1 work done amongst them by her husband, and wished them every success in the future. NO councillor n. b. lirimtne, J .1. said that he thought it was a good sign of the approval of the people, and lie was glad that they appreciated what had been done for them by the constable, and it was a credit to the locality. Mr. Evans was a, discreet and tactful officer, and, if placed in a difficult position, he would soon get out of it. He congratulated Mr. and Mrs. Evans. Mr. John, Pontypridd, also spoke in appreciation, and he was sure he was. speaking on behalf of the inhabitants of the district in which Mr. Evans is now stationed. Mr. Eleazer Jones, Blaenclydach, gave a, Welsh speech, and said that he knew Mr. Evans to be an honest and straight- forward man, and kept himself entirely aloof from the drink. Mr. J. Thomas, vice-chairman of the committee, said that Mr. Evans always did his utmost in all respects, and pro- phesied him a very promising career. He wished Mr. and Mrs. Evans a long and happy future. In the unavoidable absence of the Rev. T. E. Davies, Clydach Vale, Mr. Tom John, M.A., Tonypandy, was called upon to present the address to Mr. Evans, which he did, according to his custom, in a most felicitous and humorous man- ner. He said that he was very glad to make the presentation. In speaking about police constables, he said that he preferred the Welsh word, Hedd- geidwad," meaning "Peace-keeper." After reading the address to the audience, Mr. John referred to the words, eariiest, efficient and courteous," which were in- cluded in the address, and said that these words meant a great deal, especially courteous." He remarked that Mr. Evans should be proud of seeing a gentle- man present who was acquainted with the police of late, a magistrate, in the person of Mr. R. S. Griffiths. Mr. John ex- pressed his appreciation of the work done by P.O. Evans, and the tactful manner in which he had always discharged his duties. Mr. Evans, in responding, said he could not make a speech very well, as speech-making was not part of a con- stable's duty. He, however, expressed
Salvation Army Rescue Work Among Women. Meeting at Garth House, Trealaw. 1\fi6s Swain, of the Salvation Army Rescue Homes, Cardiff, addressed a small gathering at the Garth, Trealaw, on Thursday afternoon last, on the rescue work carried on by the Salvation Army amongst the fallen women of Cardiff After referring to the various branches of the Army's Social Work, Miss Swain said that the Rescue Homes for Women was the outcome of one woman's enthus- iasm for her fallen sisters. These Homes were started 25 years ago in Whitechapel, London, and they numbered to-day, no less than 116, with 2071 women engaged in the work. These Homes were conduc- ted strictly. on the family principle, the institutional element being kept in the background. The women were given the greatest freedom, though discipline was not in any way absent. In Cardiff there were generally 100 women under the care of the Army, many of whom came from the Rhondda Valley and other min- ing districts. At the close of the meet- ing a collection, which realised a, hand- some sum, was taken towards the Salva- I tion Army Self-Denial Fund. Those pre- sent were afterwards entertained to tea by the genial hostess, Mrs. Nicholas, who at all times, throws her heart and soul into any movement that has for its object the elevating and the alleviation of the human lot.
Car Smash at Trehafod. Narrow Escape of Mr. Leonard Llewelyn. Mr. Leonard Llewelyn, general manager of the Cambrian Colliery Trust, had a narrow escape from being seriously injured in a motor-car accident on Sunday after- noon. He was proceeding to Llanwera in company with Dr. Williams of Clydach Yale, and when they reached the Lewie Merthyr Hill, Trehafod, a tramcar and a trap coming in the opposite direction left no alternative but to negotiate the pavement. The car, however, skidded, and swerving round threw Dr. Williams out, and he sustained slight injuries to his face. Mr. Llewelyn, who was driving, escaped unhurt. The car, however, was rendered useless, two of the wheels being completely severed from the body of the car. Mr. Llewelyn telephoned for all- other car to be sent to his assistance, and the journey was continued.
A HOUSEHOLD NECESSITY. ENTIRE FAMILY DERIVED BENE- FICIAL RESULTS. H I am most thankful to say," writes Mrs. T. I,. Willicott, of 27, Coedcae Street, Grange, Cardiff, that after using Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills I have found them to be a most excellent Family Medi- cine. This I have proved most conclusively from the fact that both my daughter and son are taking them with a most beneficial effect. I have recommended them to several of my friends who have tried them, and, like myself, com- mend them with high praise. You may publish this if you think fit." In the best regu- lated families the little ills of life will creep in. Some member of the family circle may occasionally suffer from Biliousness or Indigestion, and one of the other will from time to time exhibit the well-known symptoms of Constipation. From these little troubles most serious complaints arise, and should therefore not be neglected. The slight headache, bad breath, and a discoloured tongue are the index to a disordered stomach, and the necessity of keeping a safe, sure, and reliable remedy in the house is apparent. By following such a course the more expensive method of calling in a doctor will be quite unnecessary. Sold by Chemists and Stores, price 1/1! per bottle or The W. H.

After a vote of thanks to the chair- man, the meeting ended by sinking the Welsh National Anthem. his warm feelings, and said that his heart was full of gratitude.
