Mr. Tom John, M.A., Honoured. "A Teacher of Teachers" Dr. Macnamara and the Welsh People. Mr. Tom John, M.A., an ex-president of the N.U.T., and editor of the "Rhondda Leader/' was the recipient on Saturday evening of a handsome testimonial in recognition of his sterling services in the cause of Welsh education. The presentation took place at the Hall of Jesus College, Oxford, and consisted of an illuminated address and a purse of to Mr. John, and a case of cutlery to Mrs. John. Owing to ill-health, Mrs. John was unable to be present. The gathering, which was presided over by Mr. Tom Jenkins, Merthyr, included the following:—Dr. T. J. Macnamara, M.P., Mr. J. H. Yoxall, M.P. (general secretary of the N.U.T.), Mr. T. P. Sykes (presi- dent), Mr. A. R. Pickles (president-elect), Mr. E, C. Wilmot (Cardiff), Mr. Philip Thomas (Neath), Mr. Humphrey Lewis (Llangollen), Miss Hannah Williams (Car- diff), Councillor Tom Evans (Rhondda), Mr. T. W. Berry (Rhondda), Mr. Arthur Thomas, and others. The address was as follows:- Dear Mr. Tom John,—On behalf of the entire body of Welsh teachers, of public representatives of all classes, as well as the general public throughout the whole of the Principality, we desire to offer you this address and a purse of gold as a token of the great esteem, high appreciation, goodwill, and affec- tion in which you are held throughout the motherland—Cymru Gyfan. You found your native land a land where education has been, and is, a topic of the hearth and home. Falling in early life under the inspiring spell, you formed a high and noble ideal of what Welsh education should be; you gave freely of your talents and your life so that this ideal might be realised. It is impossible to enumerate your many services—as a village teacher, as a representative to the Teachers' Con- ference, as a public representative, shaping and moulding educational policy on progressive and democratic lines, as a member of the governing body of the Porth County School, of the Council of the University College for South Wales and Monmouthshire, of the Council of the Central Welsh Board, and of the Executive and Court of the University of Wales; on the platform, in the Press, and at the Eisteddfod; as a personal friend, aiding in distress, relieving sorrow, advising and directing m professional and other difficulties, during an unbroken record of 20 years as the special representative of Welsh teachers on the Executive of the N.U.T. In each of these several offices you have pursued a life of unremitting toil and enthusiasm. Nature has endowed you with great sympathy and com- passion. To you the language of feeling is a rich vocabulary, abundant in imagery, replete with deep pathos, and full of sustaining and enduring power, to which the incomparable gift of happy, spontaneous humour has been added. With these resistless weapons of char- acter and of love you have performed noble deeds and rendered invaluable services for your country and your pro- fession you have been anointed with the oil of gladness above your fellows. We rejoice over your triumphs; we remember your deeds with gratitude. As a teacher of teachers you are of us and for us. You derive much of your strength from us, and in return you shed a upon us: and as was said of you at the Llandudno Conference by one who knows and loves Wales well, we I deem you" one of the national assets, and a thoroughly representative Welsh- man, one of that vast band of teachers, men and women, who for two or three generations have been the centre of light and leading in the towns, the villages, and the hamlets of the mother- land. v We congratulate you upon the distin- guished honour conferred upon you by Prifysgol Cymru; we thank you for all you have done for Gwalia, Wen, and we earnestly pray that you may have con- tiuued good health, happiness, and God speed, feeling confident that the chil- dren of Cymru Fydd will look back upon the noble work which you accomplished on their behalf with gratitude and admiration. Signed on behalf of the subscribers, Humphrey Lewis (treasurer), Edmund C. Wilmot (secretary), Evan Davies, John Evans, T. F. Jenkins, T. C. Jones, Rhys Nicholas, Richard G. Price, and Philip Thomas. The case containing the cutlery given to Urs. John bore the following inscription: Presented to Mrs. Tom John by the Welsh teachers as an expression of their appreciation of her sacrifice and loyalty to the cause of education in Wales." The Chairman emphasised the fact that Was through Mr. John's efforts that the *• ^iricipality recognised the primary teacher to-day in all departments of the National life (cheers). Air. Philip Thomas said he had the Sreatest pleasure in handing Mr. John address on behalf of the teachers of Wales, who loved and revered him wheers). Mr, Humphrey Lewis presented the P^rse of gold, and Mies Hannah Williams landed the case of cutlery to Mr. Dafydd «ohn who accepted it on behalf of his Mother. I)r. Macnamara, M.P., observed that Welsh were a small people, but they j^ed not apologise foot that, because what ^ey lost in quantity they made up in quality. In studying Welsh history he was struck by the extraordinary number men distinguished in the field of fought and aotion which so small a poultry had produced. The Welsh people ere true democrats. It was a very fine J^bute to the Welsh people that there not a trace of snobbishness in them, w»iS? WM wbjr root great farrwur m enthusiasm were thrown into education in Wales (cheers). Mr. Tom John, in returning thanks, said he was very grateful to his friends for their kind speeches; they had proved one thing, and that was that there was nothing so popular as to be a Welshman. He was very sorry Mrs. John was not present, and it was chiefly owing to her sacrifice and loyal devotion that he had been able to attend to the work of the N.U.T. If they were all honest and sincere in their desire for progress, they tin ust take care that the future was right as well as the present. They must look after the recruits. The glory of this country and the glory of the world depended upon the work of the teachers in the people's schools. Mr. Dafydd John also thanked the gathering on behalf of his mother. The proceedings terminated with the singing of the Welsh National Anthem.
Pontygwaiih. A memorial service to the late Dr. John Pugh, Cardiff (founder of the Forward Movement in South Wales and Mon- mouthshire), took place at the Ponty- gwaith Hall on Sunday evening last, when touching references were made to the beautiful character and work of the deceased. The loss which the Movement has sustained is irreparable; the work which he accomplished since he began the movement, sixteen years ago, is wonder- ful. "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," "Rock of Ages cleft for me," Blessed assurance —Jesus is mine," and other appropriate hymns were sung during the service, which was conducted by the Rev. E. W. Edwards (pastor). The anniversary services of Hermon Welsh Baptist Church will take place next Sunday and Monday. The officiating ministers are the Revs. Moses Roberts, Festiniog; and T. T. Jones, Clydach Vale. On Wednesday evening, a public meet- ing was held at Soar Welsh Congrega- tional Chapel, under the auspices of the Undeb Dirwestol Merched y De (South Wales Women's Temperance Society). The principal speakers were Miss Ceridwen Peris, Carnarvon, and the Rev. O. J. Owen (pastor, Calfaria Welsh Baptist, Wattstown). A full report will appear next week. -+-+- It gives us great pleasure to see among us once again Prof. J. T. Evans, M.A., Bangor Baptist College. Mr. Evans is spending the vacation at home with his parents. +-+ On Good Friday, the annual tea took place at Seion Welsh Methodist Ohapel. The tables were beautifully laid and deeorated by the lady members in a most artistic manner. The following ladies presided over the tables:—Misses Jane Jones, Rachel Jones, Fanny Thomas, Lizzie Jones, M. J. Powell, M. Davies, and Maggie Williams, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Thomas, Misses Myfanwy Davies and Edith Jones, Mrs. Lloyd Griffiths, and Miss Annie Mary Griffiths. This was un- doubtedly one of the most successful teas hoio. in connection with the church, no less than about 700 sitting down to an excellent spread, to which all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The arrangements for catering to so large a number were excellently carried out by those interested in the work. In the evening, the Rev. E. W. Edwards (Forward Movement Hall) brought his lantern and exhibited the Life of Christ upon the screen, which was highly appreciated by those present. Mr. Edwards is deserving of the highest praise for his kindness in giving this beautiful lecture, illustrated with views, to the members of Seion. Solos were also sung during the meeting by Miss Mabel Davies and Mr. D1. H. Davies.
A Terrible Fall Causes Paralysis, pronounced Incurable. Now quite restored by Dr. Cassell's Tablets. The following details are just to hand concerning an extraordinary cure effected by Dr. Cassell's Tablets in a long-standing case of infantile paralysis (hemiplegia), pronounced by doctors to be incurable, and recommended to a home. Mr. Jas. Ward Shillito, of 2, Good Hope Row, Pontefract Road, Normanton, writes, con- cerning his pretty little daughter's great recovery, as follows:—"My little girl, Lilian, fell out of a perambulator when she was about two years old and developed fits, which took away all use from one side. We took her to all the doctors round, and to the hospital, where they diagnosed her case as paralysis, but could do her no, good, and gave her up as in- curable. This went on for four years, and she was nearly helpless and quite unable to stand. At last, reading in the paper about the wonderful cures effected by Dr. Cassell's Tablets in similar cases, we deter- mined to try them. The first bottle put her on her feet again, and now she is quite well and has had no return of her terrible trouble. People are always ask- ing what has made her walk again, and we are glad and proud to tell them it was Dr. Cassell's Tablets." Dr. Cassell's Tablets can be taken with as much benefit by stout people as thin. Excess of fat is due to defective assimila- tion. Dr. Csussell's Tablets ensure a per- fect, natural and healthy assimilation, causing superfluous fat to be absorbed and turned into sound, healthy flesh. Dr. Cassell's Tablets create healthy flesh, strength and vitality, and cure the most pronounced cases of Leanness of Body Wasting; Disoas « Wrecked Nerves Ansa mi a.

Correspondence A n Appeal. To the Editor of the "Rhondda Leader." Sir,—Will you kindly allow us, through tto medium of your valuable paper, to appeal to the public of the district on kkalf of the parents of the late Arthur Norman, who met with so tragic a death &* Treorchy recently? He was, unfortunately, the sole support of his parents. His father, who has been afflicted with blindness, has been unable for some time to follow his employment. It is believed that the people of the jtuiondda and district will be glad of the opportunity of showing its sympathy with his parents in their terrible affliction; and also of showing its appreciation of the courageous conduct of our young friend who, without doubt, lost his life in attempting to protect others. The collectors appointed by the Com- mittee have been most active, and they report that people have been most ready to help. Contributions have been sent by Sir William Thomas Lewis, Bart., on behalf of himself and the Marquis of Bute, and by others. Already, in a few days, and in this district alone, close upon sixty pounds have been received. The Committee trust that many of your readers will feel disposed to assist, and will be very grateful for their help, how- ever small.—We remain, yours faithfully, DD. DL. JENKINS, Hon. Sec., 43, Stuart Street, Treorchy; B. GABE, Hon. Treasurer, Ynyswen, Treorchy. April 1st, 1907.
A Twice Told Tale. Good news bears repeating, and when it is confirmed after a long lapse of time by the giver of it, even if we hesitated to believe it at first hearing, we feel secure in accepting its truth now. The follow- ing marvellous experience of a Merthyr woman is confirmed after nearly six years. Mrs. C. Pattison, 87, John Street, Georgetown, Merthyr, says: "I have kept free from backache ever since Doan's Backache Kidney. Pills cured me, nearly six years ago. There is no mistake about it, these pills did me a lot of good, and I can confirm the testimonial I gave for them." The following is the testimonial Mrs. Pattison speaks of: F?r three years I suffered with bad pains in my back and loins, caused by my kidneys being out of order. The pains were dreadful, and when I stooped I had to take hold of the furniture to pull myself up by. The kidney secretions were irregular, and I got into a weak state. Ii Hearing of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, I got some to try, although I had already taken other medicine without getting better. When I had taken a few doses of Doan's Pills, however, I began to get well; the pains were gradually going away. I went on with the pills a little while, and now I feel quite a dif- ferent woman. I have told my friends what good Doan's Pills have done me." The genuine Doan's Backache Kidney Pills gently restore health to the delicate kidney organism, helping the kidneys to purify the blood, and to drive out the liquid waste that is the cause of backache, rheumatism, urinary disorders, gravel, stone in the bladder, and the fatal Bright's disease. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence per box (six. boxes for thirteen shillings and ninepence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. You are sure to get the richt medicine if you ask distinctly for Doan's. 2810s

Blood and Skin Diseases. Blood is Life, let it be Pure. Blotches, pimples on the face and body, scrofula, sores, itching and redness of the skin, blackheads and eczema, iudicate impure blood and unhealthy constitution. If your blood is pure your skin will be clear and healthy looking; the direct cause of skin eruption is found 111 the blood. Purify the blood and you purify and clear the skin. The purifying and healing properties of Veno's Seaweed Tonic do this admirably. Treatment for a week or two will be so eonvincing as to place a cure even in the worst cases beyond doubt. The old way was to take sulphur, larsaparilla, etc., the new way is to take Seaweed, which it infinitely superior. Veno's Seaweed Tonic not only purifies but enriches the blood. It acts constitutionally by strengthening the digestion and increasing assimila- tion and nutrition. Ask for Veno's Seaweed Tonic. Prioe one and three half-pence, and two I%nd nine, at Ottemtsts everywhere. 3307

Cardiff Empire. Nineteen years ago, Mr. Fred Bowyer wrote The Little Stowaway." It has probably been played in every theatre worthy of the name in the British Isles. Curiously enough, however, it has never been seen on a foreign stage, and, con- trary to the usual order of great successes, stands very little chance of doing so, for tne Moss-Stoll combine has secured ex- clusive rights in the long popular and pathetic playlet. The Little Stowaway," to be seen at the Cardiff Empire next week, has been re-written and brought up-to-date by Mr. Bowyer, and is pre- sented amidst new scenery and with new effects. Mr. J. K. Walton, who has played the part of the Captain over a thousand times, tells how on one occasion he attended at a provincial theatre on a Monday with his company at noonday to take the usual rehearsal. What! exclaimed the local manager you been playing this thing 15 years and want a rehearsal? Not if I know it. You're not going to waste my light, and you ought to be ashamed to1 ask for a rehearsal. Get out of it I The boxing Bros. Home pay a welcome return visit with their evergreen sketch, "The Biter Bit." Lockhart's Elephants find a place on this programme, together with popular Rosa Loader, the Lady Slavey; the Boccaccios, Lady Fauntleroy, Allis and Cassatti, and May Evans.

Has Your Child Eczema? I Here is the story of a boy who has gained so i. thorough J a cure of eczema by using Doan's Ointment that there has j. been no return of the disease for five years and a half I Mrs. Ada Riddle, ;)6, Nile Street, Sunderland, says: — "Over 5i years ago 1 made a statement to the effect that Doan's Ointment had cured my little boy of eczema, and I am pleased to be able to say that there has been no return of the malady since his cure. I think this speaks well for the ointment. The eczema was by no means a slight attack—it had been going on for months before it was cured by Doan's Ointment. I had tried everything I could think of, but nothing seemed able to cure the malady. I had used Doan's Ointment only a few days before my son was completely cured. 1 can honestly recommend this splendid ointment." The first application of Doan's Oint- ment allays the irritation of any itching skin complaint, such as eczema, piles (whether blind, itching, internal, pro- truding or bleeding), scurvy, scabies; shingles, itch, etc. There are many medi- cines which for a time alleviate the dis- tressing symptoms and the torturing itch- ing which accompanies these diseases, but we know of but one which is a "thorough" cure that one is Doan's Ointment. Why not test it for yourself F Why throw away such a splendid opportunity of a cure ? Just send us (see below) your name, address, and a penny stamp for postage, and we will send you a useful free sample of Doan's Ointment. Doan's Ointment is two shillings and ninepence a pot (six pots for thirteen shillings and ninepence). Of all chemists and stores, or post free, on receipt of price, direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Be sure you get the same kind of oiut- ment as Mrs. ltiddle had. (d)
Tonypandy Rechabites. Coming of Age Celebrations. Tuesday and Wednesday were red-letter days in the history of the Tonypandy Rechabites. The Gobaith" Tent has been meeting in Bethania Vestry since March 2nd, 188(j—21 years ago—and on the attainment of its majority as a branch it was thought fitting to celebrate this by a demonstration and public meetings. A procession was arranged to parade the principal street on Tuesday evening, fol- lowed by a public meeting at Bethania Chapel, when addresses were delivered by Mr. Thos. Richards, M.P., West Mon- mouth; and Mr. Richard C. Griffin, Bir- mingham. Since its institution, the local branch has paid (up to the end of 1906) L191 6s. in funeral claims, and £ 2,567 12s. 3d. in '^sickness claims. During the same period, it has saved or accumulated in funds £ 1,487 (including interest), which con- stitutes a remarkable record for any branch of its size in the Rhondda Valley. The ifunds of all the branches are united in the district, and the benefits are secured and guaranteed by the District, whose funds amount to close upon £ 10,000. The district secretary is Mr. D. M. Williams, Bryn Gelli House, Tonypandy.
