Mrs. PRICE. John J. Reinecke, Botanic Specialist, Pandy Square, Tonypandy. Caution to all Sufferers. Almost every day I have sufferers come to me for treatment who bitterly complain of bein" taken in by market quacks. They have been fleeced of a good sum of money ranging from dE5 to;CIO (and even more) and derived not the slightest benefit. I caution all sufferers to beware of these quacks and their curatives which are chiefly soap pills and coloured sweetened or bittered water. Man always apes his superiors, and these people are no exception. I Some of the women dres up in nurses' fashion, and some of the men don top hats and frock coats imitating the medical profession. Ask yourselves, If a ma i or woman could really cure you, would they stand in public markets, squares, etc shouting themselves hoarse trying to foist worthless concoctions on the British public ?" I, myself, stand entirely on my own merit, and I am always to be found at my place in Pandy Square. I don't charge fabulous sums, but my price is from 21- per bottle, according to the nature and state of the case, and a sing'e trial of one bottle of my medicine will give you sufficient proof of the virtue of my Herbal mixtures, which are made from the finest medicinal herbs, roots and barks in their green state—herb juices— and not made of dry, withered, old herbs, roots and barks, which are useless. Remember I don't come to see you on Pay Saturdays only, like some of the market quacks, but I am in Tonypandv all the year through. Yours faithfully,-J. J. REINECKE.

Quarter of a Century's Ministry. Presentation to Rev. E. Richards, Tonypandy. Eloquent Tributes. There was a. crowded gathering at Ebenezer Chapel, Tonypandy, on Friday evermg, when the Rev. E»an Riehat<Js was presented with a life-like portrait in oils (executed by Mr. George F. Harris, Cardiff), and a purse of gold, to mark the completion of his 25 years' ministry at the church. The chair was taken by Mr. David Williams, D.C., who was supported by Sir Alfred Thomas, Rev. John Thomas, Majrthyr,, Alderman Ribhafrd Lewis, Principal Edwards, Cardiff, Dr W. Morris Treorchy, Rev. John Williams, Trehafod, Rev. John Morgan, Bethania, Llwynypia, Rev. W. Williams (Hermon), Rev. LI. S. Davies, Williamstown, Rev. E. W. Thomas (Congregational), etc. Mr. W. P. Nicholas, clerk to the Dis- trict Council, who was to have been one of the speakers, was unavoidably absent, being detained in London 011 Council business. The Secretary (Mr. Llew. Evans) read numerous letters of apology for non- attendance from Mabon, Mr. W. Brace, M.P., Mr. W. Llewelyn Williams, M.P., Rev. M. H. Ellis, Trealaw, Rev. T. T. Jones, Blaenclydach, Rev. J. Grtrhyd Lewis, Tonyrefail, Rev. J. Whittock, Tonypandy, Dr. Abel J. Jones, Dr. E. Davies, Fochriw, etc. The following tele- gram from the Right Hon. D. Lloyd George, was also read House of Commons. Parch. Evan Richards, Ebenezer, Tony- pandy. ,"Llongsyfarcliiadau cynes i chwi a'r Eglwys bwysig; dan eicli gofal, ar y bumeci flwydd ar hugain o'ch bugeiliaeth. Oddi- wrth eich lien gyfaill, „ LLOYD GEORGE." The Chairman said that the present was an occasion which they had been looking forward to for some time. The celebration of a 25 years' ministry was an uncommon event, and could not have happened twice in the history of Eben- ezer, as the church was not yet 50 years I Rev. E. RICHARDS. old. When Mr. Richards was ordained pastor, the church only numbered 257, now the roll exceeded 600. During his pastorate they had had many u-s and downs, but under their pastor's able guidance they had flourished through them all. He was a preacher of rare power whilst his rvices in the domin- ion of politics could hardly be estimated (applause). The Rev. John Thomas, Merthyr, said that he entertained a warm regard for the recipient, for not only were they boys brought up together, but it waft on the advice of Mr. Richards' father that he (Mr. Thomas) entered the ministry. To be pastor of one church for 25 years was a very great thing indeed, and lie was very glad that Ebenezer had appre- ciated his services during all that time. He had given of his best to the church and they knew it. If anyone had asked him (the speaker!) to describe Mr Rich- ards, he would say of him that he was full of fire, a man of varied interests and lived a full life. He was possessed of very definite opinions, courageous enough, to express them at all times and under any circumstances, willing to sacri- fice himself for that which he believed in, and always loyal to his, friends. He was, moreover, a man with a large heart, brimming oyer with generosity to his fellow-men. His was a busy life, spent in the bettering of humanity, and the uplifting of his country (applause). Ald. Richard1 Lewis said that it was well to hear friends from a distance speak- ing; well of a man. but he really believed that the true test of a man's character was that of those with whom he came into daily contact. They were told by one writer that life was a photograph, and that it took many years to make the outlines clear, but once the outlines were made, eternity itself could not efface them. It was, therefore, very important how they lived. He was present that evening as an inhabitant of Mid-Rhondda and as an old friend of Mr. Richards, to testify clearly and emphatically that his life had been a blessing to others (ap- plause). He had lived the utmost of the highest; his life had been snent, not for himself, but for others. He was, there- fore, glad that the church had desired to show their appreciation in a tangible form. It was a very fitting, tribute, but after all, there was a. tribute which was more imperishable than the portrait they were presenting to him that night. Wales had at all times been proud of her ministers. In times gone by, not only were they the spiritual advisers of the people but their political leaders as well. They had that evening in the "big seat some splendid veterans, some of the finest politicians in the Principality, and he would feel that they were wanting in gratitude if they did not pive them the eilcoura,gement they deserved. He "wished the recipient a, long life, and a, noble ending to a noble career (applause).

Mr. Evan Williams, one of the deacons of the churchy presented Mr. Richards with the portrait, whilst Mrs. Jenkins, Trealaw, another old member of the church, presented her pastor with the purse of gold. The rev. gentleman, in responding, said that he had been speaking from that pulpit for 25 years, but never had he experienced so much difficultv in clothing his thoughts as he did that evening. Since he u,nde} took the pastorship of the church there had been many changes; the diaconate had completely changed, the only remaining; deacon of those who guided the church when he became pas- tor, being the chairman, Mr. DSavid Wil- liams. During, his ministry he had re- ceived 1,005 persons into membership, whilst no less than 914 letters of transfer had been received. In the course of one Sunday they collected no less a sum than £ 900, and before the week was over, a sum of EI,0010 had been collected. He was pleased to recollect that he had taken a part in the public questions of the day, and had spoken in all the counties of Wales. He firmly believed that the church had a great mission in the moulding of the life of the country, and he had contributed his quiota to that work (applause). Sir Alfred Thomas said that he was glad of an opportunity to acknowledge the services of a man like Mr. Richards, who possessed the courage of his convic- tions. He .Sir Alfred- had a difficulty at times to know wherei certain people stood, but he had never failed to under- stand Mr. Richards' position. He (Sir Alfred) was one of those who believed that ministers in past days were more respected than they were at the present time, and this degeneracy he attributed to the indifference prevailing among the people. No country on earth owed so much to its ministers as Wales. He was reading, some years ago, Mr. Austin McCarthy's book on Ireland, in which that writer pointed out how much the priests had done for the people of Ireland. Whatever the priests had done for the Irish people, said Sir Alfred, they had not done more than the Nonconformist ministers had done for Wales, and when the future historian would be compiling the history of the Principality, he would have to devote a long chapter to the courage of its ministers, who had never failed to guide and counsel the people. He had often heard people asking whether the world was as good as it once was. He (Sir Alfred) believed that it was better. The old adage was that a man should die before his work should receive its due recognition, but that evening they were honouring a man in his lifetime for great services he had rendered to his country and religion. The only possible road to greatness was by work, and in this Mr. Richards had distinguished himself, as he had always endeavoured to carry out everything that was possible for him (applause). Principal Edwards, Cardiff, who de- clared that he had a great love for the Congregationalists, because his mother was a member of that denomination, said that Mr. Richards was a great deal of a comet, because he blazed away from one end of the country to another, and yet he was like a fixed star at Ebenezer. He (Principal Edwards) rejoiced in the work he had done. He had been a faithful pastor, and a great preacher of the Gospel. He had occupied the poli- tical platform for years, but his stand- point had always. been the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and whatever question he discussed, it was dealt with in its rela- tion to religion. The Nonconformist pastors had been spoken of as political, but they were bound to be political so long as there remained inequalities to be removed, and vice to be done away with (applause). Dr. Morris, Treorchy, said that the recipient was one of the most enlightened politico-religious men of the day, in Wales. He was a man of deep and strong convictions, and possessed a grea,t amount of daring in their enunciation. He was also magnanimous enough to admit that others could possess similar convictions. He was one of those rare people who had understood the Baptist position, and had defended that, denom- ination in the face of contumely and scorn. His 25 years5 work in the Rhondda could hardly be estimated, and the future historian of the Rhondda could not afford to ignore it. The Rhon- dda, said the speaker, had been reviled by many people, but he would declare that there was no place in Wales equal to it, where a strong character could be so well builtj and where it was so gener- ally appreciated. He appealed to the young men present to enter into the herit- age handed down by their fathers and to carry the banner of progress and religious equality down to future generations un- sullied and unstained (applause). Warm tributes were also paid the- re- cipient by the Revs. John Williams, Tre- hafod, T. J. Jenkins, Llwynypia, D. R. Jones, Cardiff, Ooun. D. Smith, Tylors- town, Rev. John Morgan,. Mr. D. R. Jones, Mr. James Griffiths, and a vote of thanks to the chairman ended a memorable meeting.
