DR. MAXWELL has a thorough mastery of all that relates to the human sight-a mastery obtained first by deep, arduous and scientific study under the most learned Scientists of the day, and secondly by an extensive practice, during which he has dealt with the most aggravated, difficult and complex eases of EYESIGHT TROUBLE. His success with his patients has been recognised and appreciated by countless testi- monials acknowledging his skill and complete mastery of their cases. The following testimonials will be of interest to those who are suffering, and have not yet sought the advice of an EXPERT, or who perhaps have done so with disheartening and disappoint- ing results. The Mount, Lincoln. 10 March, 1919. Deal- Dr. Maxwell.— I wish to send you. a few lines expressive of my thanks for, and deep appreciation üf, your skill and complete success in my case. I had foolishly neglected and strained my sight to such an extent that I became greatly distressed. I had pur- chased glasses in a shop, but they only aggravated the trouble. Fortunately I saw the announcement of your visit to Cardiff, and at the same time happened to visit a lady friend who had consulted you with the most satisfactory results. As you are aware, [ called upon you, not indeed hoping for rnu:-h, as I had consulted other Specialists only to be greatly disappointed. However, after a thorough examination of my sight, you told me exactly what was wrong, and advised two pairs of glasses, one pair for near vision, and one pair for distant vision. Well, all I can say is, that if you were a magician, you could not have done better. I have the greatest comfort, not only in reading, for I read a great deal, but aL"O out walking, I can distinguish objects clearly at a considerable distance, which before I could not even see at all. I thank you very much, and shall recommend all my friends who suffer from their sight to call and consult you us soon as they possibly can. Yours very sincerely. (Mrs.) MGT. HUNTER. had nearly forgotten to say my headaches have quite ceased. Mitchelstown. 19 July, 1919. Deal- Sil' I consider it my duty to let you know that I am very pleased with the glasses you supplied me with last June. They are more satisfactory than any I have got for the past 20 years. I "I had an excellent opportunity of testing your ability as I was with several Specialists from time to time, and as late as last May two of them said they could do nothing for me, and one said no money could procure glasses for me. When I heard you were coming to town, I resolved to visit you as a last chance, with the result that I have absolute comfort both at my work (Accountant) and outdoor. I have only to add that any client whom you cannot please need go no further. You can make any use you like of this. Lt I remain, dear Sir, Yours truly, WM. BARRETT. There are few cases of aggravated visual trouble that could not have been either altogether prevented, or at all events relieved in their earlier stages, if thev had only been taken in time, but that is exactly what people will not do. They put off, and keep putting off till to-morrow, the duty which should be done to-day, and so the mischief increases, until the complaint and deficiency get such a hold on the eye that it becomes most difficult and in some cases impossible for even the most skilled Specialist to undo the mischief that time and persistent neglect have accomplished. SEE TO IT. that you do not swell the number of those who have thus permanently injured their sight. You are invited and indeed strongly urged for your own sake, for the sake of your health and your future happiness, to call at once on DR. MAXWELL, who will examine your case with the greatest care, patience, and scientific skill, without expect- ing or accepting any payment whatever. EXAMINATION and ADVICE arc entirely FREE.

Football (By" FREE.LANCE.") HARLEQUINS LOSE AT PEMBROKE. The Carmarthen Harlequins paid the penalty of taking- away a weak team, when en Saturday they were defeated at Pem- broke by 14 points to nil. A number of the regular players, including J. J. Lewis. Arthui Morgan and Willie Walton, had informed the Selection Corniwittee that they were unable to make the journey. How- ever, by Saturday morning many of the chosen playci-s ma.de excuses that they could rot. play, and the Secretary had to make an eleventh hour hunt for substitutes. It wa" :L very poor team indeed that took the field at Pembroke^, and it is surprising that they came home with such a light trouncing. The 'Quins XV. was as follows:—Archie Juries; J. Hopkins, Stan Lewi". T. G. Jones fnd W. E. Lewis; Evie Llewelyn 'and Gerwyn Davie"; O. M. Jones, ('. Metcalfe, Heggie Joha, n. D. Bartlett, Brin Lewis, Pei-cy Jones Williams, and Da vies. The 'Quins played a good game in tne Hist half, which Pembroke, with the ad- vantage of a slope, only crossed the visiting line OIl one occasion. With a three-point lead, Pembroke resumed with Vigour, and eventually their heavy forwards wore down the youngsters who opposed them. In the .second part of the encounter they scored three tries, one of which was converted. The home XV. were easily the superior lot and thoroughly deserved their victory. This is the third away match that the "Quins have lost. though last Saturday's game might easily have a victory lian the players any thought for the reputation of the Club. If the attitude of the team is that of not caring whether they win or lose, the sooner the better some drastic action is taken. There is no small amount of dissatisfaction among certain players at the manner in which thev have been treated by the Selection Committee. It is, to be hoped thal committee and players will pull themselves together and provide good foot- ball over the holiday season, as some excel- lent fixtures have been arranged. LLANDOVERY v. LLANDILO. (By DYFRI). These old rival teams met on Saturday last for the first time for many years, and attracted a big crowd of spectators. Major T. C. Thomas acted all referee. Llandovery at once attacked hotly, and splendid play among the forwards resulted in H. V. Wat- kins, the old Welsh International, scoring a capital try within five minutes of the kick- off. Edgar Evans, from a difficult angle, failed to convert. Stung with this reverse, Llandilo pressed, and W. Lewis crossed with a good try which was not improved upon. At the call of half-time the scores were equal. On resuming, Llandovery once again dis- played splendid form, and Edgar Evans, the skipper, receiving, dropped a capital goal. The Llandilo 'forwards then got aggressive, and scored two additional tries, one of which was converted. Llandilo thug won a well-contested game by four points, although a draw would have been a more correct re- sult of the day's play. Final scores:—Llandilo, 1 converted goal, 2 tries (11 points); Llandovery, 1 drooped goal, 1 try (7 points).
Football Notes. (By "Rover.") Referees should be provided with motor- sooot-ers to foPow all the movements of fast matches. If not motor-scooters, whv not telescoprs, or eleeti-ic when the game is carried on in the gathering gtoom: Every spectator thinks he is a born re- feree. But when asked to officiate with the whistle, he instantly darts into the recesses of obscurity. W riting of referees reminds me of an anecdote. A man who had offended agairwt the law was bring conveyed to prison. the way the prisoner's car was stopped outride, a football field where a match was about to be played. The offen- der was offered hi lilwdy conditionally unon refereeing the match. Without hesi- Lding, he replied on." Cardiff defeated the elsh Colleges by 10 tries toO a penn hy goal and a 1. ry, The College forwards played well. Jack Evans, the Lampeter College centre, has scored in every match in which he has playd this season. Although a ;brilliant player, Evans is the personification of modesty and gentlemanliness. Among the teams listed to play Lampeter College are the Llanelly Police, London Welsh, and the Welsh International team. It will not be the first occasion for the Welsh team to appear at Lampetcr as a few seasons ago the triple crown team played the collegians. I heartily wish all my readers the compli- ments of the season. May the spirit ot the holiday matches be maintained.
Llandyssul County School PRIZE DAY AND ENTERTAINMENT. On Wednesday in last week this animal function took place at the above school. The chairman of the governors, Ald. J. Lewis, Meiros Hall, presided, supported by the following governors:—Mrs. M. M. Jones, Gellifaharen; Rev. Aid. T. A. Thomas, Dr. Dan Evans (Hawen), and the headmaster (Mr. W. Lewis, M.A.) and staff. The pro- gramme commenced with a pianoforte solo by Misses Getta Evans and Bessie Thomas. The Headmaster gave his report, in the course of which he stated that the numbers on the roll for the' session 1918-1919 were:- 178 and 175 for three terms respectively, showing an average increase of 35 over pre- vious years. Notwithstanding epidemics and staff changes, the results this year have been remarkably good. In June D. Ed- wardes Evans passed the London Matricu- lation Examination; in July Hannah Mary Davies, Johnny Jones, Sybil Lewis, and J. Evan Williams obtained the Higher Certifi- cate of the C.W.B. In addition, 24 senior, 9 supplementary, and 18 Junior Certificates were gained by the pupils at the central exa- ruination in July, making a total of 56 certi- ficates at public examinations. On the re- suit of the Higher Examination, Johnny Jones and Hannah Mary Davies were awar- ded County Exhibitions of £ 15 each, tenable for three years; Evan Williams at the age of 16 obtained an Open Scholarship of £5û a year for three years at U.C.W.; and Edward Jenkins had been awarded a scholar- ship of £.30 a year at St. David's College, Lampeter. The old pupils continued to do well in various spheres, and many hold im- portant positions in different parts of the Empire. It was time to set about preparing a Roll of Honour of all the pupils who had served in the war. He had made out a list as far as he could, but he was not able to get all the details. He appealed to all old pupils and others who could to assist him in his efforts. In conclusion, the headmaster thanked the clerk for his continued interest in the school, and the staff for their co-opera- tion. The Chairman congratulated the headmaster and staff on the brilliant suc- cesses. A solo was then rendered by Mr. J. Jones, B.Sc., headmaster of Bryn Saron County School, and then followed an address by Dr. Dan Evans, Hawen, who also distri- buted the prizes. In an able address Dr. Evans caid:-My congratulations were offered to the headmaster and staff. Judg- ing by the headmaster's report the schools seemed to be second to none in th county nor even to those in the Principality. The parents should consider why they educated their children. Was it for the purpose of qualifying them for lucrative appointments and soft jobs in after years, or was it for the purpose of cultivating their minds, develop- ing their intelligence, and qualifying them to become useful and honourable members of society in the future. Too much import- ance should not be laid on successes in exa- minations. There were far too many exami- nations. They were a. continual worry, for as soon as one examination-was over another had to be prepared for, so that no proper attention could be given to the due cultiva- tion of the higher nature of the pupils. The proper test 01 education was conduct, iiiid no examination takes cognizance of this. No man is well-educated if he is not well-con- ducted. Many a young man with the most brilliant academical results had spoiled his career by improper conduct during his leisure time. Conduct is the ultimate test of good education. They should not forget that time allotted to games was a most important part of education.. They teach how to bear defeat without ill-feeling and jealousy. They show how to win a victory honourably without undue pride of superio- rity. And they teach how to suffer an acci- dent without losing one's temper, remember- ing that to lose one's temper is a species of insanity. Games if properly supervised were a most valuable school adjunct. With re- gard to the numerous prize-winners, they were to be congratulated and they" ish them further successes. But the others should not be discouraged. They might be able to get a better success next time. But be that as it may, they should remember that many of the most valuable members of society to-day never received prizes at school, yet they were among the most emi- nent and honoured citizens in our country, filling the most useful positions in their re- spective spheres. A vote of thanks to the doctor was pro- posed by the Rev. T. A. Thomas, and seconded by Mrs. M. M. Jones, and was carried with acclamation. Two farces were then performed by the pupils, entitled "Uncle John from Yorkshire" and "Mis- chief making." The hall -w as crowded. The acting of the pupils was quite up to the usual standard of excellence. The National An- thems, Welsh and English, were then sung, the solos being taken by Mr. J. Jones, B.Sc.
— TALGARREG. The chapels are now considering how best to perpetuate the memory and the great sacrifice of the young men who gave their lives in the Great War. Four members of Pisgah Chapel are resting in graves in French and Belgian soil, while Capelyfadfa has lost five. It is hoped that the parents of the fallen heroes will be consulted, and that worthy memorials in consonance with their feelings will be put up. The Rev. Gwilym Williams, B.A., New Quay, delivered a very interesting lecture at the Schoolroom last Thursday evening. The subject was With the Forces in Egypt and Palestine." Mr. Williams described his wanderings in detail, commencing at London and ending with the surrender of the Turks in North Palestine. At the close he was accorded the heartiest thanks for his address.
LLANDOVERY. An interesting paper was read by Lieut. J. Ceredig Evans, of Tanybryn, on the his- tory of Llandovery to the members of the Church Guild at the Gcrwyri Church Hall on Wednesday in hist, week. Mr. Evans dealt with the early inhabitants, namely, the Iberians, the Goidels and the Brythons, the last two being a part of the great Aryan or Indo-European family from which most of the nations of modern Europe traced their descent. The Iberians or men of the Stone Age, however, did not belong to this stock, and no one can say when they first came to Great Britain. That they settled in Car- marthenshire and the Vale of Towy is be- yond question. Though power passed from their hands to succeeding races, they still form the principal element among the people of S. Wales. Short and dark, with long skulls. Between 600 and 700 B.C. the Goidels came over from Northern Europe and drove the Iberians to the mountains, and this brings us to the Bronze Age. The Goidels made their weapons and tools of metal. There was constant and bitter fight- ing between these two races, but in course of time they became tolerably peaceful neighbours. Coming to the 4th century B.C-, another wave of migration forced it- self into this country. These invaders were the Brythonic Celts or men of the Iron Age. When the Romans came under Julius Caesar 54-55 B.C. they found the Brythonic Celts in possession. But it was not until a cen- tury afterwards that the Romans gained a permanent footing, and her influence gradu- ally became considerable. The main Roman load and its branches were dealt with at length in and around Llandovery, and an explanation given was that the Romans did not open up the Welsh district so thoroughly as they did in England. The Welsh moun- tains proved too much for them, and were constantly attacked and raided by the mountain tribes. The Roman camp where Llanfair Church now stands was also re- ferred to. Then a general survey was given of the ups and downs of the town until the coming of the Normans. Under the William 1. in 1066, there is no definite date as to the entering of the Normans into Llandovery. It may have taken place dur- ing the invasion of Gower in 1095. or the time of their Brecon settlement in 1100; and during this date historians assert Llandovery Castle was built. Reference was made to it being held by the Lord Rhys in 1165, and according to the Carmarthen charter, it men- tions the restoration of Llandovery Castle in the year 1280. Edward I. took over from Edmund Duke of Lancaster and appointed Bogo de Knoville Justician of S. Wales. Amongst other records kept in London is the following reference to Llandovery Castle:—John Giffard was appointed at Devizes on April 9th, 1282, to keep the body of the Castle of Llandovery during pleasure, &c. Again on March 26th, 1882, Llewelyn, the last of the Welsh Princes, and David, I his brother, joined with Gruffydd and cap- tured the castle. Some time after this Llewelyn was slain by a chance encounter with Nortimer's troops at Builth. Lord Rhys ap Meredith, Lord of Ystrad Towy, died on the eve of the feast of St. Barnabas, the Apostle. Capture and take possession of the Castle in the year 1287. But the Castle was recaptured by Robert de Tibetot on Dec. 16th, 1287. Coming to 1400, the old edifice once again comes into prominence during Glyndwr's wars. A time of great social and economic unrest, and the gradual break-up of the feudal system of landlordism. This continued until about 1500, and after that the old Castle, no doubt, sank into ruin and repose. Mention was. also made of the coming of the Christian religion into this district about 450 and 505 A.D. The Ana- tonian and Augustinian monks found their way into Wales. The Anatonian monks lived in groups of two, three and five, which explains the origin of Llanddeusant, Llan- tri.-rant, Llanpumpsaint. Towns were also named after the chief monk who lived there —Llan-Dyfri, Llan-Gatwg, Llan Deilo or Teilo. The Saints Dyfri, Gatwg, and Teilo laboured in Carmarthenshire between 530 and 560 A.D. Members of the Brychan family of Saints settled near Dolau Cothi and Caio. At the latter church there are inscribed stones relating to th's family. The quakers of Llandovery in the 16th cen- tury left Llandovery in a body in the year 1837. Mr. Evans also quoted some early and recent chroniclers, viz.:—King Henry VIII. sent his antiquary, John Leland, on an itinerary through Wales 1526-1539. He refers to a brook running through the middes of the Towne. He mentions the Castle, rivers Towe \Towy), Bran, and Guitherick (Gwedderig). Speed in his map of Carmarthenshire, 1610, writes well of Llandovery, saying that for victuals this district is very well stored, which the stomack does as well digeet. The air being temperate, wholesome and pleasing. George Burrows, in 1854, considered Llandovery a small but beautiful town. Bradley also says that Llandovery is famous in Welsh life, Welsh history, and Welsh song. Then coming to the eminent locals, Mr. Evans gave a short biography of the following:- Rhys Pritchard, or better known as Vicar Pritchard; Rev. Rhys Prydderch, Ystrad Walter, founder of the Academy at Aber- crychan; Rev. Williams, Pantycelyn, sweet singer of Wales, a great hymnologist; Rev. William Evans, who was trained at the Academy under Rhys Prydderch; Dan Isaac Davies, pupil teacher, rose to be inspector of schools; Mr. T. C. Thomas (loan Dyfri), born at Cilycwm, appointed chief clerk Pro- bate Registry at LI an da ff, composed beauti- ful poems, one on Llandovery which was quoted. In conclusion Mr. Evans stated that the old town had outliv3d its ambitiji, and as natives they neid not ftel ashamed of its past history. In conclusion, Lieu. Evans said that perhaps at some other time he would deal with the ancient churches and chapels, ancient customs, the old printing press, and the Charter and many other things of interest. The Vicar (Rev. D. Edmondes Gwen), who presided, pointed out that an old Roman well had been discovered near the Vicarage grounds. The Mayor (Coun- I cillor M. H. Nichols), Mr. Evans, of the County School; Mr. Lewis Thomas (Up- lands), and Mr. J. Edwards (College View) also spoke briefly on the subject. » A meeting of the Old Age Pension Como, mittee acting for the Llandovery district took place at the Town Hall on Friday last, Mr. D. Davies, J.P., of Rhyblid, presiding. Six applications for old age pensions were considered at some length. The committee I disallowed two applications on the ground of I, the excessive incomc of the applicants. Two applicants were granted 5s. weekly, one at 2s. and the remaining one Is. per week.
