Lieutenant Rees gave up a splendid position and joined the London Welsh, and was one of the officers in charge of the contingent of soldiers who made the route march through Merionethshire about twelve months ago. He is well. known in Barmouth (the native place of his mother), and highly respected by all who came in contact with him. General' sympathy is felt with his sorrowing mother and family. The Barmouth Library.-Tbe Quarter- ly Meeting of the above institution was held on Wednesday last, under the presidency of Mr J. R. Williams, London City and Midland Bank.

Jones (Secretary).—The reports of the Finance, Book, Billiard and Works Committees were submitted and adopted.- In stibmitting his quarter report for quarter ending June 30tb, 1916, the Secretary pointed out that notwithstanding the fact that a large number of members bad joined the colours, the working of the institution had been most successful, the financial balance far exceeding that of the corresponding period of last year.—It was reported that a large number of books,,including a complete set of John Strange Winter's works,had been presen- ted to the circulating department by Mr Fairfax Brown, Brynmynach. The Secretary was directed to convey the committee's most hearty vote of thanks to the donor.—Attention was called by the Rev. Gwynoro Davies to the lamen- ted fact that already a number of our brave oseh had fallen in the great cause 1: of freedom and humanity, both on land and sea, and it was possible, though they all fervently prayed that it would not be the case, that others would yet saorifice themselves for their King and country. In his Opinion, it behoved the, townspeople to band to- gotber and comtemplate some worthy form of memorial to commemorate the bravery and courage of our noble lads who bad gallantly laid down ,their lives in the cause of justice and freedom. He considered that such a memorial ought to.be,abo,ve all cree 'da, sects and classes, and he thought that the Library was the only public institution in the town that exactly answered this description. As men and women of every shade of religion 'and politics were among its members, he suggested that the com- mittee should take the matter in hand. The Rev. R. Lloyd Roberts, while he expressed himself in accordance with the sentiments put forth by the last speaker, said that he considered the matter premature. At the present time they had not the faintest idea. of what the final results might be.—After further discussion it was conceded that it was premature to come to any final decision, and the matter was left in abeyance for the present. Red Cross Annual Report.-Commen- cing on November 17th, 1915, and ending on June 1st, 1916, a very success- ful season was brought to a close, and as a result, the following articles have been sent to the headquarters of the British Red Cross :-87 dtiv shirts, 27 night shirts, 17 pyjamas, 123 jug cover*, 514 dusters, 300 towels, 27 p.vjama ties, 310 pairs of day socks, 108 pairs of night; socks, 87 pairs of mittens and cuffs 195 scarves, 42 bed jackets, 6 pairs nf gloves, 1 dressing gown, 7 helmets, 72 cups, 4 floor clot lis, 154 hot water bottle covers, 4 cushions, 4 games, 2 pairs of hospital slippers, 153 walking sticks, 1732 roller bandages, old linen, etc. In all, the local commmittee liave sent 3976 articles from Barmouth this past winter season, as against 1700 the previous winter, so the women here are doing their "bit" for tba big push.

not lost, but gone before." î It is with the deepest regret we have to announce the passing away of Mrs Margaret Jones, of 4, Craigydon Cottage, after a long illness. She was a native of Gwynfryn, and was born there 68 years ago. Having married the late Mr Robert Jones, she lived at Ganllwyd, Dolgelley, Penmaen, Bodowen, and Barmouth, where he died eight years ngo. She spent last winter in Birmingham with her daughters, but- returned in March having been taken ill. Though her illness was a very trying one, yet during the long weeks she showed true Christian fortitude and calm submission to the will of God. It was a means of grace to visit her, and she continued to the very end thoughtful and tender-hearted, always thinking of other people's troubles She was a devoted mother, a kind and sym- pathetic nurse, and was highly esteemed by all. The church at Siloam mourns the loss of a faithful member: she was regular in all her religious duties when in health, and during her illness kept up her interest in the cause which was so dear to her. Who can find a virtuous woman ? for her price is far above rubies. She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed, A woman that fearetb the Lord, she shall be praised." She died early on Sunday morning, and was buried at Llanaber on Tuesday, the Rev. P. H. Lewis officiating. Much sympathy is expressed with her nine children in their sore bereavement:— Mrs Hughes, Holyhead; Mrs Mitson, Cowbridge; Mrs Warren and Mrs Brewer, Birmingham: Miss Ann Jones, Morfa Lodge, Portmadoc; Mr John Jones, Bettwsycoed Mr Robert Jones, Wrexham and Misses Mary and Nellie Jones, Craigydon. Beautiful wreaths and bunches of flowers were sent by the following:- Maggie, Lizzie, Ernie, and Willie, Bir- mingham; Evelyn, Birmingham Mrs Roberts, Talybont Factory; Major, Mrs and Miss Breese, Morfa Lodge. Mr and Mrs Chalk, Glanmawddach Mr and Mrs Harold Dudley; Phyllis Wellings; Miss Brown, Shrewsbury; Kathleen and Darley Rogers; Mrs Fleet, Chester. The duties of undertaker were carried out by Mr Richard Roberts, Ivy House. "Not lost, but gone before."
NETLEY HOSPITAL FLAG DAY. Arrangements were made by Miss I Dolly Richards, Green Hill, efficiently assisted by willing supporters, fora Flag Day for the benefit of the Welsh Hospital at Netley to take place in the surrounding district on Wednesday and in the town of Barmouth, on Saturday last. Wednesday was a wet and un. favourable day, yet the appointed ladies braved the, elements and worked the districts with the following result: a. d. LLWYNGWRIL. Nurse Roberts & Miss Doli Richards 13 7 FAIRBOURNE and FRIOU. Mrs O. Williams, Aelydon, and Mrs Jones, The Cliffe 1 15 2 • ARTHOG & BARMOUTH JUNCTION. Miss Jones, Green Hill 0 12 10 DYFFRYN. Miss J. Roberts, Ivy House, and Miss Profit 0 17 6 Saturday was a glorious d tv. xnd the young salesladies were on the ground early. A proof of the Cliot-otigliness with which the woik was done is to be found in the ritet that the total sum collected in penny and three penny flag sales amounted to over X27, a truly creditable sum, collected in a quiet unobtrusive manner as ladies can and are working at the present time to help to bring the war to an end. What are some of our men doing in this respect? The following is a list of the collectors on Saturday :— £ s. d. Miss Jones, Greenhill, and Miss A. O.

i A SERIOUS TALXON A SERIOUS SUBJECT. When getting over a cold, fever, or illness of any kind, be careful to guard your kidneys against a breakdown. Every day thousands are recovering from one disease or another, and it's while convalescing "tbatgreat care is that great care J B needed to avoid falling into the clutches of kidney trouble. The kidneys, when in health, are the hardest worked organs in the body. No wonder that wbett the blood is loaded with uric, acid poisons and the work of the kidneys is doubled, that they break down. Kidney weakness follows, as naturally as night the day. After influenza, pneumonia, fevers' and even ordinary colds watch for kidney trouble, and don't negleet such signs as backache, headache] dizziness, nervous trouble and, that dull, tired feeling, no matter how unimportant they appear to you. Your kidneys will need help for a while. There is nothing more soothing, nothing better than Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. This medicine is for the J kidneys and bladder only, and has no action on the bowels. With the tem- porary assistance of Doan's pills, care as to diet, more rest and sleep and exer- cise in the open air, you can soon get back, to normal. Everyone reading this frank state- ment will understand why so many in Barmouth have confidence in, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills.
