I was worn to a skeleton, unable to move from bed for weeks together, every joint in my body was swollen and very painful I tried many doctors for relief also Turkish t'aths, hot salt water baths electric belts, &c none of them did me any good. About the third year of my sufferings from rheumatism, I had a see lip very much like cancer I was advised to try your "Hughes's Blood Pills" for it, which I did. When taking the third box I found the rheumatic pains leaving me, ot my great astonishment, so I kept on taking them, never dreaming that they would cure me of rheumatism but in six months' time I was able to take a journey of four miles on foot, when before I was quite a cripple, doubled up, and compelled to leave the police force, being unfit for active service.

'Pandy Scouts' Tramp to London. í Message Hidden In Miner's Lamp Five local Boy Scouts, being thrown out of work owing to the strike in Mid- Rhondda, recently walked from Tony- pandy to London, with a dispatch for the Secretary at headquarters. They left Tonypandy with only five shillings apiece, and each carried a miner's lamp as a lantern. Scouts along their route were warned of their coming, and, although the, dispatch bearers were searched several times, the message was not discovered. On arriving at the Scout Headquarters in Victoria Street, the dispatch, which was hidden between the soldered end of the oilcan and the bottom of a lamp, was extracted by means of a. sardine tin opener by Mr. J. A. Kyle, the secretary, who then handed it on to the Chief Scout, General Plumer, Col. de Burgh, and other members of the Headquarters' Council who happened to be at head- quarters. I The five Scoutmasters were put up at the headquarters of the Richmond Scout- I masters' Training Corps during their I brief istay in London.

But as for hei, |u;)'. pointing to his wife, I wont s a halfpenny, and you can hang me if you like." Defendant was sentenced to a montn s hard labour. MARRIED MAN'S CHILD. Hanftah Breeze, Ton-Pentre, a jungle woman, summoned Richard -J. formerly of Cwmparc, for a paternity Complainant said she. gave birth to a female child on 7th October last, of which she declared defendant was the lathei. Defendant, who had left the district, had not paid her anything. An order of 3s. 6d. a week was made. LIVING THE SIMPLE LIFE. Benj. Hutchings of. no ^ed abode was charged with sleeping out, javin0 no visible means of subsistence. PS Brinson said he found defendant -on the previous evening sleeping in an old colliery shed at Treherbert. Defen- dant, he said, had been given employ- ment at the colliery, but he only worked two turns a fortnight for a. period of nine months. He. slept on the mountain in summer, and in a. shed on the colliery premises during the winter. Defendant was" sent below for four- teen days. TOO MANY IN THE --LOUSE. Andrew Findlay, labourer, Ton-Pentre, was summoned by his wife, Catherine Findlay, for desertion. n •. v Complainant said that she had been married to defendant eight years, and there were two children of the marriage. Reading from a piece of papei, + re. I'indlay said that on Saturday, 12th November, the landlady of the house "where they lived in apartments, told them to look for a place elsewhere as they -were too many in the house. She her husband agreed that night on a plan whereby she was to stay with an aunt at Treorchy, he to pay her lis. a week until they got a place whilst he and. the children would remain in the house which they were asked to leave. Some weeks later, when she asked him if he had found a place, he told her that he had not tried for one, adding that he and the children were going to stay where they were, and that she could go and earn her own living. An order of 7s. a week was made the children to remain in the custody of the father. tou) RIAL TO GO. Eliz. Ann Buibidge.

Defendant came back later in the week, and asked her to take him back. She refused to have anything to do with him. Mr. D. W. Jones, Pentre who ap- peared for the defendant, said that after complainant's last statement he did not propose to cross-examine her. His client was perfectly prepared to go back to live with his wife. The: case was adjourned for three weeks to enable the parties to arrive at a settlement. SHOPPING AT YSTRAD. Emily Roberts (married), 152, Tyntyla Road, Ystrad, summoned Wm: Davies, Tyntyla Road, Ystrad, for assault. Complainant said that about 9 p.m. on the 30th November defendant came up to her. and said that SIIB had been talk- ing about his wife..He then struck her in the eye, knocking her down. When she got up, he knocked her down again, I giving her a black eye.
The taxes which the Tariff Reformers want to set up would take much more from the tax-payer than the State would get. To get 3s. from taxes on bread and meat the Ger- man Government makes the German pay 30s. Free Trade does not make the tax-payer pay a penny more than is really needed.
After the Riots. Penygraig Police Officer. Charged with Assault. Prosecution Fails. P.S. James Thomas, Penygraig. was charged at Porth Police Court on Thurs- day, before the Stipendiary (Mr. -D. Lleufer Thomas) and other magistrates, with assaulting Henry Griffiths and David William Griffiths, both residing at 41, Bank Street, Penygraig. Mr. T. W. Griffiths, Aberdare, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. David Rees, Ponty- pridd, for the defence. Dd. Wm. Griffiths (21) said he was a haulier, out on strike. On the night of November 21st there was rioting at Peny- graig and Tonypandy. It was the worst night of all during the riots. Witness had been away previous to that night, and he came back at 8.30 p.m. He went straight home, and had supper, after which he went out again remaining until 11 p.m. When he got hqme there were five neighbours in the middle kitchen, and they all talked about the riots, and more- especially about Mrs. Francis, a neighbour, who had been injured by the police. The front door was then locked and bolted. About 12 p.m. Henry Griffiths, his brother, went to hang his coat up in the passage prior to going to bed, when they heard the door being burst open. No request had been made to open the door, and no missile had been thrown from the house. They all rushed into the back kitchen, leaving Henry in the passage..Lizzie Morgan, his niece, held the door of the middle kitchen against the police, but eventually they proved to be the stronger. One policeman, then came into the back kitchen, but he could not say who it was. He was struck on the back of the head and became unconscious. He did not run out the back way because lie had to get the women and children out first, and by that time the police had come in. 'Cross-examined, witness said that when he was in the streets there was no row until about ll p.m., when there was stone throwing, in which he did not take part. SAVAGE RUSH. Henry Griffiths said he was also a haulier on strike. On the night in ques- tion he was not out at all further than the doorstep after nine o'clock. About 12 there were a lot of neighbours in the house. When he went to hang his coat in the passage there was a savage rush at the door, and it was broken open. He was then struck on the, arm and on the head with a truncheon, and he became; unconscious. He was examined by a doctor next morning.. Eliz. Evans, 1, Bank Street, said she was on the doorstep. The police burst open the door of No. 41, but only one went into the house. Esther Porter, 43, Bank Street, said that she was in the parlour about 12 o'clock on the night of the riot. She was afraid to go to bed owing to the disturb- ance. She saw the police go to the house of the Griffithses, and shouting, Out with them." °' HID UNDER A TABLE. James Francis, 1, Bishop Street, Peny- graig. said his wife had been injured by the police on the night in question. He was in the Griffithses' house about 12 p.m., talking about it, when the police came in. He ran to the back kitchen, and hid under the table. He saw a policeman coming in with a club in his hand. n Cross-examined by Mr. Dd. Rees, wit- ness said he saw the policeman s face, but did not recognise him. Francis Wrentmore, 5, Bishop Street, said he was in the house on the 21st November, and gave corroborative evi- dence. --) Cross-examined, he denied having said on Penygraig Square, Come on, boys, we smashed b— Pandy last night, and we'll smash. Penygraig to-night." Lizzie Morgan (io;, 4I joann DUBW, said that at 12 o'clock three policemen came into the house, and knocked down Henry Griffiths, her uncle. Sergeant Thomas came into the back kitchen. She held the door against him for some time, but he proved stronger than her, and he rushed in and knocked David William Griffiths on the: back of the head with the truncheon. Only P.S. Thomas got into the back kitchen. She knew him before. When the police came next morning, they asked who was the man that went into the back kitchen. She replied. "That's the man," pointing to P.S. Thomas, who hit David William on the head with a club." Her mother said, I think that's the man who rose the club to me." The broken truncheon produced was found by the kitchen door. Cross-examined by Mr. Rees, witness denied having asked Sergeant Thomas Were you around here last night? and that after the Sergeant replied, Yes," she said that he was the one who was in the house. P.S. Thomas told her not to accuse anyone who was not there. William Francis said he came in after the row. and saw Dd. Wm. Griffiths bleeding freely from a wound on the back of the head. Dr. C. J. Weichert said he examined both prosecutors next morning. David William had a scalp wound half an inch long. Henry had been hit on the head and forearm. THE DEFENCE. Mr. Dd. Rees, for the defence, sub- mitted that P.S. Thomas was not in the house at all when the alleged assaults took place. He had not been near Bank November 21st being to guide strange police officers about the by-streets in the locality to enable them to quell disturb- ances. Defendant gave evidence to prove this, and produced his truncheon, which had been in his possession since he entered the force. The first time he knew that lie was accused was. on the morning of November 22nd, when complainants sent for him and showed him a broken truncheon, which did not belong to him. Cross-examined by Mr. T. W. Griffiths, P.S. Thomas said he had been in Bank street once that night. He did not sug- gest that Lizzie Morgan had sworn a deliberate untruth, but he said she had made a mistake. ACTED AS GUIDE. Inspector Wm. De Brose, of the Metro- politan Police, said that he met P.S. Thomas about 9.30 p.m. on Penygraig Sonore. They were stoned by the crowd, and Sergt. Thomas acted ag his guide in routing the rioters, and, they returned at 10.15 p.m. They did not enter any house during that period. Inspector James Bole. Metropolitan, said that he joined P.S. Thomas at 10.30 p.m. They were met by a hostile crowd, and Sergi. Thomas guided them through back streets to Pandy Pit. It was near 11 p.m. when they left that pit. They met the Chief Constable there, and Sei-vt. Thomas went to speak to him. P.S. Thomas was with witness from 10.30 until 11.15. P.C. Alfred Williams. Glamorgan Con. stabulary, said he was by the Turberville Hotel when a. squad of polite arrived, and Sergt. Thomas was in command of one column. Witness fell in, and they naraded through the streets, and arrived back at the Butchers' Arms a few minutes after twelve. Sergt. Thomas then left them. He did not go to Bank Street at all during the time witness was with him. Cross-examined, witness said there was no charging during that time. TOO DANGEROUS TO SEPARATE. In answer to the Stipendiary, he said it would have been too dangerous for any small group to detach them'selves from the squad. P.C. David Bowen, Swansea Police Force, said he was in the squad. Sergt. Thomas was in charge of one column. They went a little way up Bank Street because of the stones, but they did not go into any house. P.S. John Rees Jones, Swansea Police, said he wag in Penygraig on the 21st ult. He was near the Butchers' Arms about 9.30. and had to clear the streets. They met- the Chief Constable about 11.20 p.m. Witness joined No. 2 squad, which P.S. Thomas was leading. P.S. Thomas did not go into any house, neither did any member of the squad. They did not turn into any side streets on Amos Hill on that parade. SUMMING UP. The Stipendiary, summing up, said that every opportunity had been given both sides. The first thing to consider was the evidence of identification. P.S. Thomas was well known in the locality, having, been stationed there a number of years, and all the witnesses would have known him. Only two had recognised him, although Dd. Wm. Griffiths had taken the precaution to notice a helmet close enough to know it was a Glamorgan Police helmet. One of the two witnesses of identification was very unsatisfactory, Mrs. Morgan not being at all certaiil: and seemed to have adopted a sugges- tion that it was Sergt. Thomas. Her

Ohilblains and how to cure them A treatment we have never known to fail is first to soak the hands or feet in water as hot as can be borne for 15 or 20 minutes-less than this is no use because it is necessary to warm the part right through. For unbroken chilblains, well rub in Marvello for 10 minutes, and, if possible, bind up with Marvello all night. If the chilblains are broken the water had better be only comfortably warm and Marvello applied on linen like a plaster, which should be renewed twice a day. Everyone knows how diffi- cult broken chilblains are to heal. Our advice, is therefore to cure them with Marvello before they do break, but if you are unfortunate enough to get them broken. "Marvello" is the best and quickest cure. You can get Marvello at most chemists. 129
The Reward of Heroism. Mr. R. R. Williams to Receive Albert Medal. The King's Gracious Action. His Majesty the King has directed the following letter to he sent through the Secretary of State to the Rev. Canon Lewis, Pentre, in response to represen- tations made by him for recognition of the brave action of the school teachers on the occasion of the bursting of a dam at Clydach Vale — Whitehall. Sir ,-Witli reference to your letter of the 29th ult., I am directed by the Secretary of State to inform you that his Majesty has been graciously pleased to approve of an Albert medal of the second class being awarded to Mr. Robert Williams in recognition of his bravery and his gallantry in saving life on the occasion of the Clydach Vale disaster on the 11th of March last. I am to add that Mr. Churchill has learned with interest of the services rendered by Mrs. Colville, Mr. Matthew Lewis, and other members of the staff at Clydach Vale Schools, and I am to y request that you will convey to all concerned his high appreciation of their efforts to safeguard the children under them in circumstances calling for prompt and courageous action.—I am, sir, your obedient servant W. P. BYRNE. The Rev. Canon Lewis, Ystradyfodwg Vicarage, Pentre, Rhondda. It will be remembered that the water burst with overwhelming force from an old level at Blaenclydach, and rushed un- checked towards the schools. Mr. R. R. Williams and the staff saw danger, and, with commendable presence of mind, marshalled together the scholars, the majority of whom marched in an orderly way to "a place of safety. Unfortunately, the water entered the school yard before all had left, and it was then the courage of the teachers, amongst whom Mrs. Colville was prominent, was displayed. The yard was flooded several feet deep, but members of the staff and colliers returning from work plunged into the water and did splendid service. The Rhondda Council have already erected tablets in the schools placing on record the heroic work on that eventful after- noon last March.
Wm. John Roberts, son of last wit- ness, gave corroborative evidence. Defendant said that lie and his wife were out shopping on the night in ques- tion. While his wife was in a shop, he went with a friend into a public-house. Shortly afterwards, his wife came in, auite frightened. saying: that Emily Roberts had threatened her. They started home together, when complainant came behind them, shouting most obscene language. She followed all the way down the road, and when near the Co-operative Stores, she got between him and his wife. Fearing his wife would be molested, he pushed Roberts away, and she being very drunk, fell to the ground. The black eye she had was given her by her husband later. Daisy Davies gave corroborative evi- dence. The case was dismissed.
evidence could hardly be taken into account. The evidence of Lizzie Morgan was not at all satisfactory. The prose- cutor, David William, had his, flee to the wall, so that anyone striking him would also have his face to the wall, and Lizzie Morgan. who was by the door, and in a room with very meagre light, could hardly identify him, or she must have made a mistake. As to the question Mr. Griffiths had put to P-S. Thomas about showing his own truncheon when prosecutor showed him the broken one, the girl had not accused Thomas until after that incident, and he (the Stipendiary) was bound to come to the conclusion that the only identification witness was very unsatisfactory. The prosecution was a failure on account of that. WHO WERE THE GUILTY PERSONS? It was fortunate for P.S. Thomas that he was able to trace his movements on the night in question, and to call evi- dence to prove his statements. It was bound to bring the conviction home that he was not there. It was true that the police came down Amos Hill, but the question was whether they turned into Bank Street. With one exception, wit- nesses for the defence stated that they did not, but that exception was one who did not know the district at all, and could easily have made a mistake. The prosecution had been a failure, and had left P.S. Thomas without a suspicion on his character. The fact that the prose- cution had failed made it all the more necessary from the public point of view that the real persons who entered the house should be found, and it was a regret to the public that those persons were not brought up. The charge against P.S. Thomas would be dismissed.
