Amusements. Hippodrome, Tonypandy. Mr. Will Stone has a capital programme to submit to his patrons this week. It is brimful of rollicking mirth, convulsive entertainment, and pleasing instruction. Among the variety lions are Cricks and Sharp. two comedians of expressive mien, with a positive penchant for dancing; Miss Ken-Ware, in her latest London suc- cesses Miss Alma Curzon, a comedienne and burlesque artiste of much charm and power; Tom Joy, comedian and racy raconteur of funny stories; R. 0. Note, a vocalist with a reputation and Antonio Medcalf, of the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company. The pictures are funny and furious, including I'll Fetch the Bread," Laughing Gas," Boy, Bust and Bath," Three Phases of the Moon," The Sentimental Thief," etc., etc. Palace, Porth. With their usual forethought, the management have secured for their patrons a holiday programme of extra-superfine quality and variety. The Five Whiteleys head the combination with a marvellous exhibition of acrobatic wire walking busi- ness sufficiently thrilling to satisfy the most sceptical. Their feats of daring, poised in mid-air, make the timorous close their eyes in expectant dread, while the most intrepid feel their pulses move several degrees faster during the astound- ing performance, xiie juggling art is ex- hibited in all its wonders by The Walleys. Beau and Belle submit some really fine music in their pretty vocal scena. A good turn is that of Hastings and Fields in comedy and dance. Miss Lillie Soutter upholds her London reputation as a star characteristic comedienne. Will Farrell, with his new comic songs and patter, makes your faces ache and your sides sore when he has finished with you. Quite exceptional interest centres around The Kyasyas, who go through a unique per- formance of Dandy Athletics," and Dental Hirsute Novelties." They are applauded both loud and long. Perhaps the piece-de-rcsistance of the show is the electric review in four scenes, entitled Rousby's Around Paris," showing clearly and openly some of the far-famed wonders of the French capital. (A member of the audience informed our representative that a more real exhibition of the actual doings of the gay Parisians has never been put on any stage). New music is heard from the band, under Mr. Stuart Lane's able direction; the Bioscope is excellent; and the genial acting manager, Mr. Walter Bynorth, caters for the comfort of circle, pit and gallery in the best possible way. Tivoli, Pentre. Filled to overflowing has been each house this week, the management having, catered most excellently for their patrons,
Cardiff Empire. Raisuli's Brigands Next Week. Not long ago, the capture of Kaid Sir Harry Maclean the intrepid commander- in-chief of the Moroccan Army, by Raisuli, the famous brigand, was in every- body's mouth. Thinking that this notorious warrior might be an interesting personage in the eyes of the public, Mr. Stoll dispatched a commissioner to Morocco, but he failed to induce Raisuli to come to England. However, he was fortunate enough to enlist the services of fourteen brigands, and these wild warriors will be seen at Cardiff Empire next Monday. They are wild and untutored in the craft of the stage, and they perform a weird powder play," to the accompaniment of drums, fierce war-cries, and an instrument known as the raita," which puts the Highland bagpipes in the shade. The warriors are bare-legged and uncanny looking, and each carries a long musket striped like a zebra. The war dance is quaint and alarming. The brigands twirl round on their toes like tops, crouch on the ground, spring in the air with blood- curdling yells, and charge at each other, at the same time discharging their muskets downwards. Another item is the wedding dance. This is entirely humorous, and the antics of the chief dancer, who carries a drum, ought to give points to some of our lead- ing comedians. The men are all between the ages of twenty and thirty-five, and one of them, El Machro, who was guard over the cap- tured Kaid Maclean, is a man of splendid physique. They are accompanied by a dancing boy, without whom no Moorish exercises are complete. Like all good followers of Mohammed, the brigands will not touch or look at butchered meat, but, oddly enough, they do not object to an English killed chicken. Eggs and vegetables are their favourite eatables. Before their food is prepared, the chief- tain Ben Ahmed, mutters incantations over it, and the cook has a special grace of his own as he chops the chicken, throws it in the pot with lots of onions, and heaps of salt and pepper. When the cooking is completed, the pot is placed in the centre of the room, and the brigands, having very carefully washed themselves, squat round it, and dip their hands in the stew in search of chicken. They know nothing of the utility of forks and knives, but use spoons for the gravy. The amount of salt they eat is alarming to Western ideas. Coffee is their strongest drink. The Kellinos, Mr. and Mrs. Finden, J. W. Rickaby, the Warsaw Brothers, Harry Edson and his Dogs, Bert Harrow and Rhoda Paul, in Harry Dacre's sketch, The Schoolboy's Dream," produced by Bertie Shelton, are others on the bill.

E. Fidler, previous to their competition at the Mountain Ash Eistedd- fod. The men of Blaenau Festiniog were at one time the champion band of Wales. Their record is an enviable one. and since their entry into the competitive arena. they have won over £ 3,000 in prizes. The most notable of their successes was the winning of the North Wales Challenge Cup, and at present they are the holders of the National Eisteddfod Challenge Shield. The programme for the evening was as follows: March, Avondale" selection, Mikado" (test piece Abergavenny); cornet solo, La Reine d'Amour," Mr. A. Laycock; grand selection Robin Haod" (test piece, Belle Vue, 1907); air varie, Ar Hyd y Nos selection, Crown Diamonds selection, Faust selec- tion, Rustic Scenes hymn, "Sandon."

m_ .1' Concert at Pentre. Belshazzar's Feast by Zion Choir. Zion (E.B.) Church, Pentre, took advan- tage of the holiday time to give a per- formance of Belshazzar's Feast." The attendance on Thursday was but moderate, but this was more than atoned for on Friday evening. Some little delay was occasioned at the outset by the absence of Dr. W. E. Thomas, who was expected to preside; but Mr. Howeils, who subse- quently acted in that capacity in his usual racy and humorous manner, read a letter of apology from the doctor, who sent a subscription, which was humorously re- ferred to by the chairman as a guinea pig." When the conductor, Mr. Gwiiym Jones, rose to his work, quite 100 voices responded to, his baton, and the audience were straightway treated to a vigorous rendering of Stand up and bless the Lord." The effect of this piece was transcended only by the closing chorus, Magnify, Glorify," which merited great praise, and was greeted with warm applause. After the first chorus, Mr. Tom Bonnell, the tenor, who had been detained at an eisteddfod at Treherbert, arrived amid very definite signs of pleasure. It was evident the audience were interested in him, and it is due to him to say that their expectations were quite realised. Miss May Moses was an undoubted suc- cess as soprano, her rendering of "Of a truth is it" being perhaps her best, although she was heartily acclaimed for her spirited singing of Rejoice, 0 Daughter of Zion." Mr. Wm. Davies like- wise fulfilled his part as bass with con- sistent merit, each of his efforts being well received. Of the others who contri- buted solos, honourable mention must be made of Mrs. M. Davies, Mrs. E. J. Ralph, Mrs. J. H. Davies and Mr. M. Davies, all of whom are members of the church and choir; while Mr G. Jaundrel, as historian, did his part pleasingly and faithfully. Notice must be made too of Mr. W. J. Salter, who aeted so ably as organist, and of the orchestra, under the conductorship of Mr. J. Williams. Mr. Gwilym Jones is to be congratulated for the masterly way in which he did his work. It is a tribute to him to have succeeded in so effectively interpreting this now famous oratorio. There were moments when one was positively thrilled. The concert indeed was a marked success, and it is to be hoped it was as great a success finan- cially as it was musically.

England v. Wales. Greal Mcttch at Tonypandy. Prolific Scoring. Huge Crowd Delighted with Display. Thanks to the enterprise of the Mid- Rhondda Social and Athletic Club, coupled with the diplomatic foresight of the committee responsible for the arrange- ments of the match, Rhonddaites were treated to a game on. Monday last which, judged from the spectacular point of view, has probably been unsurpassed for many years. The Northern Union code has been steadily engrossing the affections of Rhondda footballers for some time past, ana Monday's match is calculated to give the movement for establishing profes- sional clubs in the Valleys an immense fillip. Certain it is that the enormous crowd—some 15,000 and more-were filled with delight at the character of the game, and from sundry rumours which have reached us, we may at least expect two, if not three, clubs formed under the Northern Union rules ere the advent of the next football season. Prior to the match the Northern Union officials held an informal meeting, when they discussed matters with representa- tives of Welsh clubs who are desirous of embarking upon the professional game. Mr. Platt, the general secretary, vouch- safed the information that, provided grounds could be obtained, teams would be formed at Penygraig, Treherbert, Maesteg, and Pontypridd, and very pro- bably at Pontypool. Two changes were made in the teams, on the English side Leytham, the Wigan star" wing, being substituted by Batten, of Hunslet, and Shugar's place in the Welsh pack being taken by Saunders, of Ebbw Vale. Teams: Wales.—Back, T. Jenkins (Ebbw Vale); three-quarter backs L. Treharne (Wigan), B. Jenkins (Wigan), P. Thomas (Leeds), and D. Thomas (Halifax); half-backs, R. Rees (Merthyr) and J. Thomas (Wigan); forwards, A. Buckler (Salford), G. Rud- dick (Broughton Rangers), D. Jones (Merthyr), O. Burgham (Ebbw Vale), W. Saunders (Ebbw Vale), and D. B. Davies (Merthyr). England.—Back, H. Taylor (Hull); three-quarter backs, W. Batten (Hunslet), A. Hogg (Broughton Rangers), G. Dickin- son (Warrington), and J. Fish (Warring- ton); half-backs, J. Jolley (Runcorn) and T. White (Oldham); forwards, A. Padbury (Runcorn) A. Robinson (Halifax), H. Wilson (Hunslet), S. Warwick (Salford), T. W. Birch (Leeds), and J. Spencer (Salford). Referee, Mr. Robinson, Warrington. Dai Jones set the ball going for the Principality, and the Welshmen assumed the aggressive. Mainly by better handling by the three-quarters, in which Batten and Fish were prominent, England removed the venue, and gained a penalty in a good position. Jolley was enabled to give his side an early lead by a well-placed goal. Keeping up the pressure, the Eng- lish forwards opened up the game by heeling, and White and Jolley often set their three-quarters, in motion. Fish was held up on the line after a smart burst, and eventually one of the Englishmen forced his way over, but Jolley failed to goal. Wales played up smartly, and Dai Thomas made a long run down the left, when he was forced into touch at the English 25 flag. Wales were doing better at this juncture, and Treharne notched a try in the comer. Johnny Thomas eon- verted. Spencer soon afterwards got over r for England, and Fish converted. The subsequent play was brimful of excite- ment, and Treharne, following up well, helped Jenkins to get over under the posts. Scarcely had the game re-started ere Ruddick raced away in fine style and registered a try, J. Thomas adding the goal in both instances. Wales were now leading by five points. England then got away, and Fish crossed twice for them, one try of which was converted. Half-time score; G. T. Jrts. ENGLAND 3 4 18 WALES 3 3 15 The play was exciting on the resump- tion, and Wales made a valiant attempt to reduce the advantage claimed by her opponents. Rees Rees whipped away fronr a scrum at the 25 line, and after Phil Thomas and Jenkins had handled, a pass to Burgham put that player over, for,, Johnny Thomas to again register a goal. 1 There was no denying Hen Gwalia, Gwlad y Gan, at this stage, and passing, in which the whole of the backs participated, gave Dai Thomas an opportunity which he utilised to good purpose, after outwitting Fish and Taylor, and scored an excellent try. Johnny Thomas kicked his fifth goal, bringing the Welsh total up to 25 points. Try as they would England could not get away to neutral territory and there find a lodgment, for the home side had by this time proved beyond measure. Fish, Hogg and Batten fought strenuously to keep the attacking force out, and aided by Taylor relieved the situation. Although repulsed temporarily, Wales would not be denied, and after passing through half a dozen hands, Bert Jenkins secured the leather on the verge of the line and scored an- other fine try. The end was now rapidly approaching, and just on the call of time Jenkins was again successful in breaking! through, and for the seventh time J. Thomas added the goal points. Final score: I G. T.

Association Football. CWMPARC 7gls., RHONDDA LEAGUE 0. At Cwmparc on Good Friday. Although playing four reserves, the homesters snowed superiority in every position, and scored through Evan Jones (2), G. Hem- mings (a;, T. M. Evans and Dicky Jones. There was no outstanding player with the visitors, although tttedman Jones (Cwm- parc Crescents) occasionally put in some ueft touches at centre-forward. CWMPARC 3gls., SWANSEA TOWN 2. This match on Saturday attracted a middling crowd, and proved one of the most exciting of the season. Swansea had designs on Cwmparc's ground record, and I the result hung in the balance until the call of time. The visitors scored twice in the first ten minutes, but lanto Jones did the hat trick for Cwmparc and just saved the record. CWMPARC 3gls., ASBURY RICHMOND (Birmingham District League Cham- pions) 2. This game on Easter Monday proved highly interesting, the visitors being speedy and scientific. Evan Jones netted first, but the Brum men levelled matters from a penalty. Another penalty to Cwm- parc was converted by Hemming. In the opening minute of the second hall, Win- sper notched a grand goal for the visitors, but G. Hemmings, just before timne, won the game for Cwmparo with a flue shot. Mog Evans, at centre-half, was a. tower of strength for the homesters. EBBW VALE Sgls., CWMPARC 2. At Ebbw Vale on Tuesday. Cwmparc were not at full strength, but had the best of matters in the first h&lf. Evan Jones scoring. The Valians rushed a goal through, the score being 1 all. The Park men were apparently stale, and m the second half failed to stay the pace. Talbot scored twice for Ebbw Vale and Gower for the visitors. Ianto Jones badly injured his foot, and was practically a passenger. CWMPARO BOYS lgl., CARDIFF SCHOOLBOYS 1. This juvenile match was played on the Taff Field on Thursday evening last and attracted a good gate. Unfortunately, a high wind made correct play difficult, but there were some pretty incidents. Cardiff had the advantage in weight, but the home boys showed superior control of the ball. idris Meredith, the diminutive Park ,skipper, scored a penalty for his side. In the second half, Allan scored with a good shot for the visitors. J. R. LewiS waa prominent with some fine runs for Cwm- parc, and the Cardiff full-backs put in safe and lengthy kicking.
Rugby. Treorchy still hold their ground record. i. Tine matches between them and Llwynypia aaid Mountain Ash on Good Friday and last Saturday were of great interest. Although Llwynypia thought to break their record and brake their speed- as they have already done with some teams—they were defeated by 9 points to nil. Treorchy defeated Mount" by 8 points to nil.
nuip trom Merthyr. Help to those in trouble is always wel- crnne. To many here, who are in trouble, ithe experience of this Merthyr woman will prove of the greatest assistance and encouragement. Mrs. Clarke, 29, Upper Taff Street, Merthyr, says: —" For many years I was a martyr to what I always believed to be kidney trouble. The pains in my back and loins at first were only slight, but as time went on they kept getting worse. Then the pains became dull and con- tinuous. and I had no rest, day or night —sometimes the pains worked round to my side, and I could hardly draw my breath. 1 had dizzy feelings and sick head- aches. I lost my appetite, and was always tired and worn out. I tried many meiucines, but without any good results. But it was different when I began with Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, as from the first I found they were helping me. Going on with the medicine, I became free from backache and better in every way. I feel quite a different woman now, thanks to Doan's Pills." Kidney disease is dangerous, because it comes on so quietly. It has many symp- toms, and often they are mistaken for other diseases. Headaches, a nervous, irritable condition, irregular heart, sleep- lessness, dizzy spells, a constant tired feeling—these are just as much symptoms of kidney disorder as backache, dropsy, urinary troubles, rheumatism, gravel, bladder weakness, etc. Kidney disease may have been working in the system for years before the cause of the trouble has been suspected. That's the danger. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are a special medicine for kidney and bladder disease. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are two shillings and ninepence per box (six boxes for thirteen shillings and nine- pence). Of all chemists and stores, or Sost free, direct from Foster-McClellan o., 8, Wells Street, Oxford Street, London, W. Mrs. Clarke was cured by Doan's; be sure that you get Doan's." 2810h

Maurin's Marvellous Fountains being the principal draw. This new and up-to-date turn consists of 20,000 gallons of real water pouring on the stage, which, playing under pow-ertul electric limelights, pro- vides constant changes in the shape of the water and colours with indescribable kaleidoscopic and beautiful prismatic effects, concluding with The Water Nymphs," living statues in the middle of the water. The Krags, phenomenal Con- tinental gymnasts, give a good account of themselves, their daring feats being loudly applauded. Sira, the one-legged acrobatic phenomeuonl is a fine turn, his venture- some balancing feats being great. Eldra ana Prince," the educated dog, give an excellent show. Alfonzo, the upside-down marvel, and Fianka Wonder, performing with the massive cask, tossing and turning it in the air with his feet, keep the audi- ence almost in a nervous state. Ryder Davis, actor-vocalist and comedian, in his rendering of It is the same old story," took well. Goggin and Davis, acrobats, are well to the fore. Dunn and Reano, a laughable gymnastic interlude; and Pierce and Ward, comedy duo, in their four-round boxing contest, keep the audi- ence in convulsions of laughter. The pic- tures are new and of exceptional merit.
