-= ¡ FOOTBALL. ( —— ¡ The Northern Union Game. ¡ CHAMPIONS V. REST OF WELSH LEAGUE. Ebbw. Vale, the champions of the Welsh Northern Union League, met a team representing the rest of the clubs in the League at Ebbw Vale, on Mon- day. The teams were as follow:- Pick of Wa!es. Bad.. Fitzgerald (Treherbert): three-quarter backs, Gowmeadow, Ponty Thomas (Merthyr), Evans (Aberdaro), and Parker (Abe:- dare); half-backs, H. Rees and D. Rees (Mid-Rhon- dda)-' forwards, D. B. Davies (Merthyr), Thomas and Jenkins (Merthyr), Norris (Mir-Rhondda), Gal- loway (Treherbert). and Dan Lewis (Merthyr). Ebbw Vale: Back, Dai Davies; three-quarter backs, Kerton Harvey, H. Smith, and "Chick" Jenkins, half-backs, Shiglo Thomas and W. Higgins (cap- I tain): forwards, J Foley, G. Hitchings, W. Brown, Dai Maile O. Burgham, and J. Edmunds. Ebbw Vale started against a strong wind, and play was taken to the visitors' quarters, where "Shiglo" Thomas was injured and had to retire, but soon resumed. The visitors receiving smartly from the scrum saw Rees, the visiting outside half, make a good run, but his pass went astray. Ebbw Vale secured the ball from the scrum, and Higgins receiving, put in a kick which Hitchings failed to gather, but Brown racing up dribbled nearly half the length of the field and scored. Dai Davies con- verted. The teams crossed over with Ebbw Vale leading by five points to nil. With the wind in their favour Ebbw Vale held the upper hand in the second half, but the game became very uninteresting. "Chick" made a good but fruit- less attempt to kick a goal from over the halfway line. Then Ebbw Vale pressed, and Smith beat I Fitzgerald and scored under the post. Dai Davies r converted. From a. scrum "Shiglo" got over in the corner Davies again converting at a difficult angle. Just before time Foley got over, Davies majorising. The champions, therefore, won by tour goals, four tries (20 points) to ml. I The game was not a good exhibition of the Nor- thern Union code, being very unmethodical and scrambling. Ebbw Vale were the better team, and Dai Davies's excellent goal-kicking was the chicf feature of the match.
PRESENTATION OF THE CUP TO THE EBBW VALE CAPTAIN. At the conclusion of the match the cup was pre- sented to the captain of the Ebbw Vale team in the presence of a largo crowd. Mr. Kent, Mid-Rhondda, the president of the League, ascended the roof of the press box. and was accompanied by Mr. T. Rees, of the Ebbw Vale club. and W. Higgins, the old Pill half and captain of the Ebbw Vale team. The magnificent cup, standing three feet high, was greatly admired by the spectators. Mr Kent in making the presentation to Mr. Higgins, said it gave him great pleasure to pre- sent that massive trophy to the Ebbw \ale Club, who had won it handsomely the first time it had been offered. lie congratulated them upon their success and tllp, excellence *of their play through- out the season. It was the finest cup he had ever seen presented'to any team, and could safely say it was the best trophy ever offered in a footfJaJI com- petition They were indebted to the Northern Union Committee tor sending them such a magnificent, cup.

ABERDARE SCHOOLBOYS' LEAGUE. SHIELD WON BY THE NATIONAL SCHOOL. Four seasons have elapsed since the formation of a Football League in connection with the Aberdare schoolboys. During this period the trophy (a shield offered by Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P.) has been won by four different teams, viz., 1905-6, Higher Grade; 1905-7, Industrial; 1907-8, Blaengwawr, and this year by the National On Saturday the Higher Grade and the National met at the Athletic Grounds to decide which should be the holders this year. vr A good crowd lined the ropes. Mr. Sam Parker, the captain of the Aberdare Town Team, was the referee, while Messrs. A. E, Kimpton and Sam Farringtou officiated as linesmen. The National boys, winning the toss, commenced play downneld, and, aided by a strong wind, soou became aggres- sive. The Gradians' backs exhibited weakness, and it was not a surprise to sec the defence soon pene- trated, and goals obtained for the National through Mason and T. Evans In the second half the Gra- dians had the best of matters, and Walters netted two goals, the game thus ending in a draw. The teams met again on Monday. No score was registered at the final, and extra time had to be played, when the National netted three goals and the Gradians one. The Rev. W. H. Jones presented the captain of the winning team, the son of Dr. W. LI. Rhys, with the shield. L- Ih- IIB mmmmbW——'—ww A
TORMENTS of ECIEtAA Baby's Irritation was Horrible-Neither Child nor Parents Got a Fuii Night's Sleep tri Two Years-Immadiately Soothed io SSeep and Perfectly Cured by Cuticura 22 Years Ago. When my eldest son was about eighteen months of age he became very badly affected with eczema on the head. In spite of doctors and many •weeks' treatment at a. London hospital he grew so bad that his scalp was one complete mass of running sores. The irritation was so great that it was only by tying his hands we could prevent him from scratching his head. My wife and I had to sit up all night with him in turns of a few hours each. This stato of affairs continued for two years, and by that time we were in despair of his ever recovering. A friend recommended Cuticura. Remedies and we bought a full set of Cuticura. Soap, Cuticura Ointment and Cuticura Resolvent. The effect was really magical. They soothed him imme- diately and he feli into a sound sloop which continued right through the night. It was the first proper night's rest he had had for two years and the first night of unbroken sleep either my wife or I had had during that period. His progress under the regular use of the Cuticura Remedies was very rapid, and a complete cure was effected within six months. This was twenty.two years ago.

REVEEWS. We have received from tho i abian Society tv.o Welsh tracts, 'Sosialaeth a'r Eglwysi (Socialism and the Church") (Dr. Clifford), and Sosialaeth yng Ngoleuni'r neibl" ("Socialism in the Light of the lliblc") (j R. Jones, Carnarvon). These tracts, no doubt, will be of interest to students of socialism from a religious standpoint- "Tricks of Self-defencc," by W. II. CoUingridge, and "Text book on walking for pleasure exercise, and sport," bv C li. Darner, have just beeu pub- lished by "Health and Strength," Ltd., 12.- Bur- leigli-strcet, Strand, London, W.C. These will be found very useful by everyone. They arc published at one shilling each. "Harper's Magazine" for May, is more than usu- ally interesting. It contains several complete stories, freely illustrated, and Professor Robert Kennedy Duncan, of the University of Kansas, contributes a very thoughtful article on "The Chemical Interpre- tation of Life." There are a couple of character sketches of Mark Twain, the great American hu- morist, which cannot fail to interest readers. These are only a few of the contents of a really excellent magazine. We have received from Messrs. Eyre and Spot- tiswoode Ltd 33, Paterncster-row, London, K.C., the official handbook of the English Church Page- ant to be held in the grounds of Fulham Palace, London, S.W. from June 10th to June 16th. Those who intend to visit London for the pageant would bo well advised to procure a copy of this handbook in advance. It tells how the idea of the pageant originated, and gives full details of the arrange- ments. The price of the handbook, which is freely illustrated, i:; sixpence. In the "Century Magazine" for May, William 31. Ivins contributes an article on "Public Service Com- missions"; there is an illustrated article on Mu- nicli; Samuel II. Bishop describes a new basis of work for the blind; musicians will be deeply in- terested in "A Conversation on Music with Ossip Gabrilowitsch." There are also articles on divorce, experiences in East Africa, and the American settler in the Canadian North West. Besides these there arc several complete stories and poems which go to make up a magazine of exceptional interest. In the "Nationalist" for May, John Wm. Lang- staff writes about "The legendary hahy boy of Car- narvon Castle," and shows that Edward I. did not t play a trick on the Welsh chieftains in 1284 by summoning them to Carnarvon to see his new born boy. This, he sa's, is it fable, and all the pictures based upon it but the baseless fabrics of romantic dreams. There is an article on "The Welsh Col- leges and the Scotch Commissioners," ard Arthur Mce contributes a very interesting sketch of Ro- bert Recorde and his work. "The London Welsh- man" also provides interesting reading, and the other features are up to the usual standard of ex- cellence. We have received from Messrs. Scdgwick and Jackson, Ltd 3 Adam-street, Adelphi, London, W.C., "The Essential Reform Land Values Taxa- tion in Theory and Practice," by C. U. Chomley and R. L. Outhwaito. This handy volume, which is published at one shilling, makes its appearance at an opportune moment. The authors have en- deavoured to show how the principle of taxation of land values can be most beneficially applied, to pre- sent day needs in the United Kingdom. First of all the ethics of taxation are dealt with, then the au- thors show how a tax on land values would increase wages and encourage farming, manufacturing, min- ing, building, and all other industries. Australian precedents are given, and the relation of the tax to Free Trade is explained, as well as practical means of imitating the tax. It is also shown how much revenue would be raised and how present bur- dens could be remitted. Objections to such a tax arc answered, and there is an appendix by the late Max Hirsch on the valne of land in the United Kfrigdom. Now that the question of the taxation or land values has been brought into the sphere of practical politics this volume will be found most helpful. On the 10th inst. MCSHS, Rebman, Ltd., of 129, Shaftesbury-avenne. London. W.C.. promise to pub- lish "Progressive Creation," by the Rev. Holdcn E. Sampson, and they do not hesitate to pronounce this one of the most remarkablo books that has ap- peared in the last half-century. It will, they be- lieve, appeal to a very wide circle of readers and thinkers; to the scientist as a positive advance on the evolutionary theory; to the theologian because following scientific lines of reasoning it nevertheless strongly upholds the tenets of religion while pre- senting those tenets on a. logical basis. It affords a theory of origin of life, of being, ot nature and forms, of evil, and of tho earth and heavenly bodies, which has never before, in the history of modern littrature, been propounded; a theory of the deepest interest and importance. Most thinking men and women are interested in religion in some form, if it be only to argue that all religions are myths. To all, therefore, this masterly exposition should awaken some response whether of agreement, enthusiasm, or opposition. In whichever attitude they may be prepared to receive H, all will find it well worth their while to study it carefully and thoughtfully. This work will be i?suoxi in two demy octavo volumes, comprising over 1,000 pages, at 21s. net. 1\1 f

the most rabid opponent cannot but admit that the .Soccer game has jumped into popularity by leaps and hounds. Financially the South Walcs and Mon- mouthshire Association has experienced a record season. Indeed, the Senior Cup gate of £173 1)(;- t'.veen Merthyr Town and Ton Pentro. at Tonypandy, wili require a lot of beating, although the high water-mark in that direction will not be obtained for many seasons yet. Undoubtedly tho clean and scientific methods, together with the good manage- ment of the game, appeals to every supporter of honest sport. In the Rhondda Valley, thanks to the enterprise of Ton Pentro and others, the game now holdn sway, and next season will witness the organisation of one, if not two, new professional clubs, while junior dubs have sprung up in every dirccti<>n. in the Merthyr Valley (he new Merthyr club slands pre-eminent, and the promoters are to be highly com- | plimented in having steered the club through a "hoal of difficulties to such a high pinnacle in South Wales Soccer. Probably, next season will witness oilil greater developments at Merthyr. Trocdyrhiw, lower down the Valley, have accom- plished wonders, as with practically the same team that won the Rhymnev Valley League, Third Di- vision, they have won the Junior Cup at the first time of asking, together with making a great fight for tlw League. Treharris unfortunately has experienced a very lean season. The chief reason for this is the in- ability of their new players to blend together, while some ot the old hands, who have rendered yeoman service in rhe past must be considered a spent force. Next season the committee anticipate, with the aid of several new players, regaining their old position among the chief exponents in the Principality. son, although they started late, have done exceed- ingly well, and as next season all of their old play- ers will be eligible for the Junior Cup. much is an ticipated of them, both in the League and other I competitIOns. In the Rhymney Valley, despite the falling away of Llanbradach through the unfortunate strike, iieveral new clubs have sprung into existence, wliil: the older organisations have all maintained their fonnei prestige, and the future appears still more hopeful. From a League standpoint everything worked splendidly up to April, Vhen a congestion of fixtures, together with the abnormal weather, uL. terly spoiled a splendid finish in both tho First and Second Divisions. Aberdare and Ton Pentre were due to meet to settle the destination of the First Di- vision trophy, on April 22nd. the only re- quiring a single point to establish their lead. but unfortunately Jupiter Pluvius upset these arrange- ments. uhat the League committee will decide re- mains to be seen. "TV In the Second Division Cwm and Troedyrhiw, after a neck and neck race, tied for points, and as their goal average was precisely similar a deciding game was considered necessary. Unfortunately, owing to a misunderstanding and the shortness of time to make the necessary arrangements, such meeting could not be arranged. Probably both clubs will meet early next season to decide the championship. In the Third Division, which has worked splen- didly this ason, Treharris Juniors and Pontlottyn Juniors easily outdistanced all others in the race for honours. Brithdir Abertysswg, and Troedrhiw- fuwch seemed likely at one period to give the leaders some trouble, but eventually Treharris Juniors set the seal on a great season's performance by over- coming Pontlottyn at home, which gave them the lead on their close rivals by a very narrow mar- gin. In all probability both clubs will figure in the Second Division next season, as tjhe Soccer cede is again rapidly coming to the front at Tontlottyn. Second Division next season, as tjhe Soccer cede is again rapidly coming to the front at Tontlottyn.
