RUGBY. FflRNDALE 8pts., MAESTEG 3. The. Llynvi Valley boys encountered the Ferndalians in a Glamorgan League fix-bure on the Darran Grounds on Satur- day Last. This was the second meeting of the "beams this season, Maesteg being the winners on the first occasion by 12 points to nil. The home team were with- out Harry Davies (forward), who is laid up, whilst the three-quarter line had to undergo an alteration. Dai Lewis started operations for the homesters. From the line out in Maes- teg's territory, the home forwards began to press, and soon forced a minor. On the restart, the visitors took play to mid- field, where it remained for some time. One of tlic- Llyijvi forwards went away in grand fashion from the line out, ana was within an ace of scoring, but was finely pulled tip by W. J. James, the home cus- todian. From a scrum in the home 25, the forwards got away smartly, and Rogyn Jones securing on the halfway line, nearly got, in on his own. Two free kicks wore awarded Maesteg in succes- sion, but to no advantage. After some pretty play by the homesters, they were awarded & fix, kick. and Danny Owen's kick for goal went wide. W. E. John, however, came along and caught all his opponents napping, scoring a beautiful try, amidst cheering. The same player had nv difficulty in adding the extra points. III he second half, Freddie Biddis- fcombe, receiving from his forwards, gave Billy Davies a "lightning" pass, and tho latter opened up the game in real Welsh style. D. O. John transferred to D. Daries' (Cocdwr), who romped over with » splendid unconverted try in the right corner. On the resumption, Maes- teg seemed to have the better hand, and were gaining much ground. A free- kick was given the homesters, but' Danny Owen's attempt for goal fell short. The Llyni boys still kept up the attack.- A few minutes later saw the ball being fumbled 8Y every one of the homesters, and Tommy Williams following up, gathered smartly and crossed with an un- converted trv. Maesteg were still striving to add to their score, but could not pierce the sound defence of the rern- daliane. TRBQROHY llpts., BARGOED 5. This interesting Glamorgan League fix- ture was played at Bargoed. Taking the game in its entirety, the League cham- piona' victory was well deserved, as they were the cleverer team. In the first half, a smart movement resulted in D. W. Jones scoring for Tre- orchy. T. O. Jones and his brother, D. W. Jones, exhibited some fine inter- passing, and Hay ward romped over with a try for Ba.rgoed, which a good kick from Yallis converted. During the final stages, the Rhondda men showed their superiority, and Dan Lewis (Bwlch) and Dai T asughan secured tries. Daly James, who was, as usual, faultless at back, nego- tiated one of the tries. For the home- sters, Ned Bees, Evans, Ridge and Watts were the best, while T. O. Jones, L. Lewis, D. W. Jones and Vaughan were prominent for Treorchy. TRHHHRBERT 3pts., RHONDDA LEAGUE 3. A team of picked players representing the Rhondda Senior League played a matok against Treherbert on the latter's ground on Saturday. The League fielded a strong and efficient organisation, whereas the Treherbert side suffered from absentees, particularly among the backs. P.S. Owen kicked off for the home- sterfi against a strong wind, and Thomas (centra) replied with a kick to touch well inside 4she Treherbert half. The League forwards broke away with a good rush from the line out, the Premiers conceding a minor. On resuming, the League re- turned to the attack, W. Jones (full- back) making a futile attempt to land a penalty goal. After a loose Torward rush, Treherbert reached halfway, but were soon repelled, and from a mark by Emryg Davies, W. Jones succeeded in scoring m beautiful drop goal. Play was fairly even for the remainder of the half. A. Morgan restarted for the League, and Treherbert gained an attacking posi- tion for a short time through faulty kicking by some of the League players. After getting back inside the Treherbert half, Tom Lewis (forward) broke away with a dribble from a line out, a try almost resulting. W. Lewis (outside half) •ross-kicked, and W. Morris (centre) getting down to the ball, dribbled over the League's line, for Sam Lewis to score a try. which W. Colwill (the Treherbert custodian) faied to convert. The light was now failing fast and the game became uninteresting. Pearce and Hopkins led a good rush for the League, which trans- ferred play to the Treherbert line but 110 score resulted. W. Lewis kicked far down the field, and following up smartly, had hard luck in failing to touch down whem over the line. Treherbert had the better of the game from now on. PBNYGRAIG RES. 12pts PENYR- HNGLYN ALL WHITES 0. A very small crowd witnessed the League match between the above teams on the Treherbert Athletic Grounds on Monday. The visitors early demonstrated their superiority. They played good football, and by a splendid combined movement registered a' try against their opponents in the initial half. This was not con- verted. After the interval, there was only one team in the game. Penygraig now had their opponents well beaten. The visit- ing team indulged in frequent passing bouts which were delightful to witness, and which added three more unconverted tries to their score. Penygraig also secured a goal from a penalty.
ASSOCIATION. WELSH CUP RE-PLAY. TON-PENTRE Igl., CARDIFF CITY 0. These teams met upon the Partridge Field on Thursday afternoon of last week, before a very good crowd of spec- tators. This match was the re-play tie in the second round for the Welsh Senior Cup. Ton-Pentre gained a slight advan- tage at the start, but Jack Evans repulsed them and kept the home left wing going. Roberts centred and Curtis sent in a swift drive, which struck the crossbar. He met the rebound, but the second shot went against the upright. Watt dis- played smartness in beating Martin and Morgan before passing out to Jack Evans, who gained ground by sprinting along the touch line. The centring kick found the inside forward badly placed, and Russell cleared. Percival ran out later and saved at a moment when Pinch had a possible chance of getting through. A strong burst by Ton again placed the City on the defensive, and a free kick was awarded, Davies being fouled. Russell played well, and the ball, after striking beneath the bar, dropped into play. A brief attack by Cardiff was repulsed, and Lawrie gave a penalty away by tripping Curtis. Russell took the shot and gave Ton-Pentre the lead, which they fully deserved, and came near increasing a few minutes later. Husbands stopped a nice drive from Tommy Davies, although he conceded a corner in do,:Ig so. Cardiff gained an excellent opening when McDonald made headway on the right wing. The centring kick across the goal mouth would probably have resulted in a score if Jack Evans had been able to secure a. footing on the slippery turf. Percival was not given any work for some time, but Husbands had to defend against Curtis. Allmrm. and Tommy Davies. Early in the second half, Cardiff had a free kick. Niblo came into notice with a tricky burst, though he had the mis- fortune of seeing one of his own side get in the way. He regained possession, but the defence was safe. Pinch and McDonald got off with a smart attacking movement, but the advantage gained was undone by a poor centre kick. Niblo and Watt afterwards changed places, though the opportunity in attack was not given them until they had suffered a deal of pressure from combined efforts by the Ton-Pentre forwards. Two corners were awarded to Cardiff, and McKenzie, reply- ing to a partial clearance by Gregory, put in a good shot, which was well stopped by Percival. No further scoring took place, and Ton won by the only goal scored, CARDIFF CITY 3gls., CWMPARC 0. This Glamorgan League match was played at Ninian Park, Cardiff on Satur- day. Cwmparc made a couple of changes in their eleven, Martin and Will Jones appearing at right and centre half re- spectively. In spite of the heavy rain of the previous days, the ground was in fairly good condition although a bit heavy. A crowd of 3,000 (including Merry Andrew) gave the teàfnsä cordial recep- tion as they fielded. The visitors kiciving off against the wind, Evans and Pearce were early tested, but were equal to the designs of Peake and Co., Jack Hughes keeping Jack Evans well in check. Harry Jones was applauded for a good save from I Niblo, and later Peake shot high over the bar with only harry Jones to beat. Dicky and Squibby Jones were prominent with some excellent interpassing and tricky football, and were proving a big handful for Mackenzie and Yank Powell. Peake opened the score for Cardiff from a. doubtful position. After the interval, Cwmparc failed to maintain their high standard "of play, although they had a good share of the attack. Pinch and Lawrie scored for the homesters, and Dicky Jones and T. M. Evans had hard lines for Park. MARDY FOOTBALL. Last Saturday was again a blank one for footballers. The Premiers journeyed to Trehafod to meet the Lewis Merthyr team in a South Wales League fixture, only to find that they had their trouble for nothing. It was said that the ground and its approaches were under water, and that, therefore, the match could not be played. The Reserves also had to cancel their fixture with Cardiff City Reserves. The Committee have arranged an attractive series of matches for the holi- days. Merthyr are the visitors in a Glamorgan League fixture on Saturday, and on Monday Mardy visit Aberdare in the same competition. On Tuesday, they entertain Oamerton, who, it will bo remembered, beat Mardy by three goals to two in the third round of the English Cup. On Wednesday, Bath City are the visitors. The four games will be good ones; Camerton and Bath are bringing over their strongest teams, while Merthyr and Aberdare are too well-known to need mention. TREORCHY THURSDAYS lgl., MID- RHONDDA 1. This game played on the Taff Field, Treorchy, on Thursday, was an interesting one, both teams playing well. Treorchy were awarded a corner, and Charlie Francis cleverly headed a goal. Play was carried near the homesters' goal, and one of the Mid men kicked a very soft goal. For Treorchy, Charlie Francis and Stillard, of Cwmparc Crescents, played an excellent game, the latter being Treorchy's mainstay. ST. CYNON'S RES. 3gls, LLWYOTPIA 1. Tonyrefail Athletic having failed to keep their promise to the Llwynypia team on Saturday last, and St. Cynon's Res. being without an engagement, the above two teams met upon the Partridge Field in a friendly. Llwynypia, however, had scarcely more than half of their players, and had to pick a number of spectators to make up a side. G. Davies, the Cynon's goalie, was also missing, and his place was taken by J. Old. In spite of all these disadvantages, a pretty game was witnessed. The field was in a very bad state. W. Couch and Crump were in the best of form for Llwynypia. the former shooting remarkably well, and the latter sprinting along the field at a splen- did pace. Edgar Parry and Noah L. Davies were also in fine form for the Cynon's, as also was J. Old between the sticks. The honour of scoring two of the goals for the Reserves fell to W. H. Evans, while Gil Huzell scored the other. PENRHIWFER ALBIONS 5gls., WIL- LIAMSTOWN CRESCENTS 1. The Crescents visited Penrhiwfer Albions on Saturday last, and lost after a stiff encounter by 5—1. The Crescents were very much handicapped by the heavy state of the ground. Doyle, at full-back, showed fine form, and worked hard throughout the game. The play was brimful of interest, but the Crescents' forwarcls let their side down badly at times. The rumour that the Treherbert Res. is about to disband because their players have been captured by the Treher- bert Ex-Schoolboys, is entirely unfounded. The Reserves are certall-ily not a strong organisation, and it is tottering without a doubt, but this has not been caused m any way by the revival of the Ex- Schoolboys.

With the "Boys" in Amei ica. Varied lmpras-ions. I By GODFREY PRICE, Tylorstown.J We hear so much in letters and through newspapers of the industrial war in the South Wales coalfield—of broken heads, ruined property and bitter feelings in the hearts of master and man, that I wonder if anyone will care to give any time to the reading of my feeble attempts in literature. On the other haD it may serve the purpose of giving soiii, iie who is tired of the strife, something else to read besides the heartrending accounts that fill the papers. All the boys talk of the crisis with bated, breath, and we all hope that matters will soon dis- entangle themselves, and. the outcome be Peace with honour." I think I ended my last letter with the account of our irly ai,rivil in New York from Ocean Grove. We naturally spent the most of the next day resting, that is, resting as much as the fearful humidity and heat would allow us to. I don't think there is anything else of general interest to be said of our stay in New York, and as we have up to the pre- sent time travelled about seven thousand miles since leaving New York, it is time for me to bring your readers along also, or they will never reach Racine, Wis- consin/where, we are at present. We left New York for AnsOIÚa. on the 9th of September. Ansonia is in Connec- ticut. In some strange way the name of this city appeared familiar to me, and I suddenly remembered that I had seen it (Ansonia) printed on labels on scores of clocks in the Old Country. It appears to me that this town, as well as Water- bury (Conn.), have. been famous for many years for the number of timepieces manu- factured there. In Ansonia we gave two concerts. The Welsh people here are of the best kind. They hail mostly from the neighbourhood of Llanclly, and they all hold responsible positions in the great machine shops here. We were entertained at their homes right royally, and it was with regret that we left Ansonia. and the genial Welsh living there. On Sunday, the 11th, we gave a sacred concert at Seymour, and then moved on to Waterbury (population 55,000), where we stayed and gave. concerts for three days. It was amusing to see how some of the people of Ansonia., having once heard us, kept following us, some of them attend- ing nearly all the concerts at Waterbury. The most notable among these was a Judge, whose name I cannot remember but I shall always remember how on the street in Waterbury lie told me to take care of the gift God had put in my throat." From Waterbury we moved to Dan- bury on the 15th. Here we had the novel experience of giving an afternoon concert in the open-air. We sang here under the auspices of the Ladies' Literary Society, and that afternoon will cer- tainly live in our memories. Mallory's Grove, as the spot was called, is a. beautiful wooded glade about two miles from the town. Tall, stately trees grew all round, and were now beginning to put on the beautiful autumn garments. Perhaps it would be well to pause here to say a little concerning the beauty of the foliage during the autumn in this country; not that I can do justice. with the subject, but as one who admires beauty in all its forms. I remember well how—on our return home from the last tour in America—the early green of the fields gladdened our hearts in our own little island. After many weeks of dull monotonous brown of the prairies of Iowa, Ohio, and Illinois, the sight was like an eye-salve to us. Whilst travelling hundreds of miles in the train in America, we longed for a glance at the green hedges and fields of home. The States we travelled through then in the winter were not at all pretty, and the monotony depressing, and therefore the British scenery was very welcome indeed. But previous to the cold season, however, we had many opportunities to feast our eyes on the beauties of autumn. As the trains rushed through the wooded vales of Pennsylvania, New York, &c., we were treated to such sceneries that would make one hold his or her breath to witness. Sometimes wooded slopes would stretch along for miles, exhibiting for the benefit of man- kind every shade of beautiful brown. Colours varying from a neutral yellowish tint to a deep blood-red shade. And thus with one scene closely following upon the other. and excelling the last in its gorgeous beauty, we rushed along. At other times our train would carry us through vast forests, and the sight of the sunbeams playing among the foliage here calls for a more experienced pencil than mine to describe it. All I know is that I held my breath at the sight of it. It is said that America .is the land of great things. No doubt it is. I think, however, that the Yankee does not realise the greatness of the beauties of Nature in his own country. Sometimes an obscure corner in the magazines and papers is made beautiful by a description of one of the beauty-spots; but not often enough, I think. To go back to the concert in Mallory's Grove—the spot where our afternoon concert was held. It is beautifully adapted for the purpose. Rough seats had been knocked together for the audi- ence, while the boys sat in a semi- circle on chairs on Nature's carpet of grass and dead leaves. I think we never enjoyed giving a con- cert more than on this occasion, and I never envied the audience on any occa- sion so much as I did here. Judging from their countenances, our singing must have been fine.—their applause also said as much. Some of the people told me at the end that they will never forget that con- cert. The martial strains of Harlech and the beautiful cadences in the softer passages in Old Joe and Long day closes will live in their memory for ever." We moved on from here to Pough- keepsie, Conn., where on the 16th, 17th and 18th we gave concerts. Nothing of general interest may be recorded of this place, only the full appreciation of the audiences of our singing. It would be only fair to state, however, that the Y.M.C.A.. at this town threw their doors open to us. and we were able to enjoy to the full the privileges of the members in their beautiful building. We have had many causes to be thankful -to this Institution in America. Many times have we enjoyed the numerous privileges granted to visitors, and the practical benefits which this excellent Society con- fers on their fellow-men is bound to be a power for good. On the afternoon of the 18th, a quartet of us, including Morgan Edwards, Tom Thomas (Ynyshir), Tom Jones, and vseif, were sent on to sing at the First1 Congregational Church at Middletown (population 14,516), where we were to sing on the following Monday evening. It was on this journey (the weather being hot and all the windows in the train being open) that I was able to bend for- ward and pick some flowers; growing on the side of the cutting! This brought a ;iry remark from Tom. Well," said lie, we talk a lot about the rraff Vale trains being slow, but this line beats the Taff. I haven't yet heard of anyone picking flowers from the train there yet!" From Middletown. N.Y., we went on to Binghampton N.Y. (population 46,000), then to Owego, N.Y. (population 22,572), From Middletown. N.Y., we went on to Binghampton N.Y. (population 46,000), then to Qwego, N.Y. (population 22,572), and Ithica, N.Y. (population L>615). It was here on our last tour that we had a toboggan ride, which we shall never for- -of. But I cannot stop with that now. I shall do my best to describe it next time. For the present Au revoir!
Porth. The funeral of the late Mrs. Gwenllian Bowen, the wife of Mr. Joseph Bowen, Inter. Mus. Bac., Porth, took place on Wednesday afternoon last, amid every manifestation of sympathy and regret. As reported in. our last issue, Mrs. Bowen had been ill for a considerable period with an internal disease, to which she succumbed on Friday week at her resi- dence, Mount Pleasant, Porth.

Weekly Stock Market Report. [From A. Mitchelson & Co.. Stock and Share Brokers, Cardiff and Swansea.] Markets during the past week liave presented a scrlewhat more animated appearance than they have done lately, mainly by reason of the sharp upward movements that have been witnessed in a. few leading specialities. Rhynmey Irons have received a great deal of atten. tion and remain a strong market. Spillers and Bakers £1 fully paid shares are now at about 38s. Coliseum have come m for a great deal of attention, and are talked to at least C4 very shortly, the present price is £ 3 7s. 6d. to £ 3 12s. 6d. Stepney Wheels have, however, occu- pied the premier position UlLÍ1e eye* of the public locally, and show signs of im- proving in strength considerably, parti- cularly in view of the fact that they are an investment which on the basis of recent dividends yields about 14 per cent. The £ 1 fully paid shares are at 30s. 6d. to 32s. 6d., cum. dividend of 2s. per share, equivalent to 28s. 6d. to 30s. 6d. xd. The Company has just issued its annual report and balance sheet, which shows that the undertaking has done phenomenally well during the past year, and that the financial position is one of exceptional strength. In fact, the Com- pany has been rightly described as the greatest local success this district has ever produced. The capital is £ 87,.>50 in £ 1 shares. there being no Debentures or Preference shares. The net profit for the year is k35,276, to which amount must be added L14,238 brought forward from the previous year, thus making a total of C48,515 to the credit of Profit and Loss Account. An interim dividend of 2s. per share has been paid, while a further 2s. per share, making 20 per cent. for the year, is to be paid in a few days. This will absorb in all £ 17,510, and will eave, after writing £ 5,639 off patent rights; a balance of E26,365 to be carried forward, I i,.e., sufficient to pay a. further dividend of 30 per cent., or in all 50 per cent. for the year. A yet more important point is that I the Company has realisable assets amount- ing to approximately £ 100,000, about £ 70,000 of which amount is invested out- side their business altogether in first- class Government securities. This means that if the Company were wound up at once. there would be sufficient to pay the shareholders nearly 25s. per share, and this apart altogether from the value of the patent, goodwill. &c. As indicative of the steady and remark- able progress of the Company, the profits since the formation are as follows: —Nine months to 31st August. 1907 920,9,30; twelve months to 31st August, 1908, £ 26,061; twelve months to 31st August, 1909, £ 33,044; twelve months to 31ct August, 1910, £ 35,276. A total profit, it will be seen, of P,115,311 in less than four years, on a capital of only £ 87,550. Another satisfactory point is that the Company is not dependent upon the sale of the Stepney Wheel alove,, the directors having extended their operations into various branches of the motor car industry. It is obvious, in the face of the fore- going, that the shares are undervalued. and should easily be worth at least 37s' cum. div., whilst any great demand might even put them up to over £ 2. at which figure they would yield 10 per"cent. The current price 13 30s.—32s. cum. div., equal to 28s.— 30s. ex. dir., and it is most probable that there will be a good rise in these shares.
Tonypandy s Demands. In matters such as that dealt with in the following paragraph Tonypandv demands Tonypandy evidence, and rightly so, for the personal experience of a neigli. bour alone can be accepted without ques- tion. Mr. B. Davies, of 51. Dunraven Street, is a well-known resident of Tonypandy. He is a miner, and the experience he relates will be interesting to all who follow that calling. It is well known," says Mr. Davies, that on account of having to work in all manner of positions, miners are subject to kidney trouble. I was suffering badly some months ago; when I have got up early in the morning, my eyes have been so misty that I could hardly see—I had a dazed feeling about me. I knew my kidneys were wrong, for the water was badly coloured, and there was pain in passing it. My back used to ache so much that I scarcely knew how to keep to my work, for I had to be in a doubled-up position for a long while. I have worked down the pit over 20 years, and never before have I felt so bad I began to think I should have to give up work if I did not get any better. Then I was persuaded to try Doan's Backache Kidney Pills as lots of miners praise them. One box of the pills did me a great deal of good I was able to stoop without so much difficulty as before, and I could move more freely. The water was not so painful to pass, and became less cloudy. After that I improved day by day, until, by the time I had taicen three boxes of Doan's pills, I was my old self again. I have felt none of the pains since, and can do a day's work with any man. I am glad to give this testimony for Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, for they are just the medicine that miners need —I can confidently recommend them. (Signed) Benjamin Davies."
