I For the Ladies. I HOW TO USE OIL. I I Some Useful Hints for ( Householders. Most people know when the sewing- machine, the bicycle, the perambulator, and such domestic machines need oil, but they do not always discriminate in the kind of oil they use. They generally seize upon any that is handy. The right oil to use for a clock, no matter what sort it is, is clock oil, a clean, thin lubricating oil that does not dry or get fticky. It is also suitable for any light machinery. The least possible touch of it on the working parts only of clocks will suffice, and as the movements are slow, they do not need it often. If this oil were used for sewing I machines and the like they would require it too often, so machine oil with more body is best used very lightly, but as frequently as may be needed to keep all the parts slightly greased. Fast running machinery requires oiling the oftenest. Whereas once a year might do for a clock, once a day would be necessary for a machine in constant use. And the heavier the machinery the heavier the oil should be; engine oil is really heavy machine oil. Linseed oil in appearance might ceein to be a good lubricant, but is altogether unsuitable. It dries like a hard varnish, and of course, would clog any machinery almost as badly as varnish would, except that it hardens slowly. For this reason it is quite unfit for using on whetstones when sharpening tools, for it makes them j hard and useless. If used for oiling the bright blades of eaws or other tools, it make? them brown and varnished, but I it is the very best for rubbing into the I wooden parts to k?p them clan and to impart a hard nnishpd surface. For woodwork and polishing it is invaluable, and is excellent therefore for reviving j varnished furniture and leather goods. It is exoensive, of course, but palm oil i& I considered, quite a good substitute. j Petroleum and paraffin, besides beng i the recognised burning oil for lighting and heating purposes, is efficacious and j cheap for cleaning the working parts of machinery before lubricating. It is good I fop thinning down machine oil before Imbricating and makes a capital lubricant, for locks and light machinery if a little sperm oil is added. For sharpening tools on the whet-stone many workmen prefer it to any other. It is advisable to remember that oil is a lubricant not only necessary for C:l"Y running, but is also an invalu- able economiser of wear axtd tear in all classes of machinery.
Dr. SALEEBY. 'I a'??1f tjrM?I?LU i Prohibition and Social Problems. Swansea Meetings. At the invitation of the Mayor and Mayoress, a number of Swansea people gathered at Mount Pleasant Schoolroom to hear an address by Dr. Saleeby, on commercial, social, and economic advan- tages of Prohibition as observed by him in America. Tho Mayor welcomed Dr. Saleeby to Swansea. Dealing with the Prohibition question, Dr. Saleeby said that the effects of Pro- hibition had been such as to affect with the same idea wet states next to the dry ones. But Prohibition had never yet been completely effected in any of the states. He proceeded to deal with tho position of affairs when, in January next, there will be general prohibition under the constitution of the United States. He pointed out that the original agitation was not primarily ag-ainst alcohol as such, but against the saloon, which was a centre of all the vicious, anti-social forces of the country. He had eecn jails in prohibition cities which could not now be filled, and were used for a technical school. DRUG HABIT HLJE." Replying to what he called the "lie" about the drug habit being a necessary result of' prohibition, Dr. Saleeby men- tioned that the centre of the drug habit was New York, which was also a great drinking centre. He had found that a large number of hospitals for dealing with such cases had been closed in prohibition areas for the want of patients. Tho church in America was the first to at. tack the saloon, business men came in later on the ground of efficiency, and then the doctors. Absolutely no one in America could be got to favour the use of spirits. EVENING MEETING. Mayor n Need of Increased Efficiency. I When Dr. C. W. Saleeby, F.R.S. (Edin.). lectured on Wednesday evening to an audience which packed tho ground floor of the Mount Pleasant Chapel, Swansea, he had the Mayor (Mr. W. H. Miles) as his chairman. The Mayor .spoke of the serious prob- lems of the present moment after the years of sacrifice and destruction. They heard from all quarters the necessity for reconstruction and increased production: yet it seemed large sections of the popu- lati-on were satisfied with pleasure, and did not realise the call to all seriously minded people to put their best efforts, as they had during the past five years, into the problems of the time. Without increased production, however, they, could not get increased efficiency, and without good health increased efficiency was impossible. (Applause.) Whatever their opinions* in regard to remedies for intemperance, they were all agreed as to some of its results, and he thought no reasonable person could deny tha't one of the lllost glaring of these was a lack of efficiency, not by any means con- fined to one section in the community. ( Applause.) As one interested in increased efficiency, and desirous of a heightened standard oi living in the town, it eeemed to him fitting that he should preside to show, at any rate, his appreciation of the seriousness of the subject, and his belief \hat every public man should do all he Tould to get things put right. (Applause.) IDEAL HEALTH MINISTRY. I Dr. C. W. Saleeby, heartily received spoke on The Ideal Health Ministry.' Emphasising first of ail our falling birth- rate, the deplorable ill-health of a large proportion of tho survivors, and the sig- nificance of the "1 in 3" A men which the war revealed, he argued that the greater proportion of the prevalent disease should never have lappened.. The lunc^ons of the ideal Ministry, in Jus view, should be to learn tho facts of the disease; to teach them throughout the country; to guard supplies such as milk on the I)alisil and iW»v York lines and to help the populace. Public edu- cation in air, lighting, hygiene, and drink was, he believed, the. foundac* in of a healthy England; public eaucat.cn on alcohol, the way to get rid of it as a national enemy. How could they cure housing problems when on the average men spent more ou drink than on rent (' PROBLEM OF ADOLESCENCE. Concluding, Dr. Saleeby spoke un. pressively of the problems of adolescence as they affected possible functions of the. ideal Ministry of Health, pointing out the increased incidence of venereal diseases, and arguing ttringly for the care of young people during leisure by .he provision of recreation, instead of dissipating, by people who wanted, not monetary reoirn but the health of the country. The oorrcejt leisure miight not be what older people would prescribe that tihe younger should like best, It must be removed from the old Thou shal,tl,i "and Thou shalrt; nofs," and have in it no killjoyism or depression.
TAXES YOU NtED kOT PAY. I Year by year, the tax-gatherer dips deeper into our pockets. We like good British citizens, grumble and pay. But there are far worse taxes extorted by that merciless tyrant Kidney Disease." ilia victims pay in money, health, and of ten iu life. itself. These are taxes which none need pay, because relief can be obtained by ail. Disordered kidneys cause untold suffering, and any pain in the small of the hack may announce the beginning of Blight's Disease or dropsy. One of the chief functions of the kidneys is to remove uric acid, and if this is checked the blcnjd becomes poisoned with uric acid, which is carried to every part of the body, causing rheumatism, gout, lumbago, etc. No time should be lost in taking Warner's Safe Cure, an unfailing remedy at all steles of kidney diseases. Mrs. Donagby, 48. Strahane Road, Londonderry, reports that her husband had been very ill, swollen from head to foot. After the second dose of Warner's Safe Cure the swelling be- gan to subside, and the next day it was gone. She is convinced that this remedy saved her husband's life. Warner's Safe' Cure is sold by all chemists at 3/- and 5/- per bottle. A valuable book will be sent post free on application to Messrs. H. H. Warner and Co.. Ltd., 18-20.

THEOLOGICAL COLLEGES. Trefecca Again. Laymen Eligible For Moderators. A further discussion on Trefecca College was opened in the second session, when Dr. Cynddylan Jones, according to motion, moved: In face of the fact that the Associa- tion. through its education committees, has not fulfilled the conditions ttpon which the theological college was removed from Trefecca to Aberystwyth, I wish to call the attention of the Association to the desirability of removing the College to a central place, such as Trefecca and Swan- sea, and thereby to bring the students and churches to a better understanding of and co-operation with each other; and also, in face of the fact that a theological course, with the. exception of dogmatic theolog-y, is to be brought into our national colleges, to investigate the nature of the education which ought to be im- parted, so as to make the students not ¡ bare scholars, hut effective preachers, which is the chief aim of our theological institution." The Rev. J. Morgan Jones suggested that on such a motion nothing about Tre- fecca could be discussed. Mr. T. C. Jones (of Penarth), suggested that as the whole question of education had been relegated to a committee, this motion should be deferred. A SEAl ES OF COMMITTEES. Dr. Cynddylan Jones, speaking in sup- port of his motion, said he gave it not with a view of creating any bitterness or contention. Evidently some of them wantod to restrain him. That was al- ways tho result when a denomination be- came simply a series of committees. They should eliminate everything personal from the question. His motion divided itself into two parts, dealing with Trefecca and Aberystwyth—and he could not expouand the second part without pointing out that the conditions on which the College was removed from Trefecca to Aberystwyth had not been fulfilled. He was as much to be blamed as anybody for the removal at the college to Aberystwyth, as he was a member of the committee. To-day there was a strong feeling in Glamorgan, Mon- mouthshire and Brecon that Trefecca Col- lege should be restored, if not to its prior status and standing, to a standing that it would be efficient and powerful for good in the counties of South Wales. TREFECCA A RUIN. I Money was oollected by Mr., Mathws for Trefecca on the supposition that Tre- fecca was to continue as a oollege, and the Association at Cardigan agreed that Tre- fecca should be carried on as an efficient institution, so as to supply Breconshire 'uld tho adjoining oounties with ministers. What had occurred? Though fully £ 2,000 was collected, Tre.fecca had become a ruin practically from neglect. Every- body said they did not want to kill or sup- press Trefecca, but he noticed how care- ful the committee in their report were to I call it a Preparatory School. The term college was studiously avoided. In the past it always had been called college, and the word college had a degree of re- spectability attached to it. I-it3 wanted to see the college revived, so as to become a power for good in South Wales. THE STAFF. I Dealing with Trefecca, he urged that Bible knowledge and Bible theology should certainly be included in the Scheol of the prophets, so as to ground their young people in the evangelical doctrines of the denomination. According to his plan they would have one tutor for English tpd Latin at. £ 100, and another to teach I' Mathematics and Greek at £ 120 a year und his bouse, and another tutor to take eare of the Biblical and theological side. They should make Trefecca a Bible insti- tute alter the style of the Wesleyans, and as they had them in America. The head- master should be a man of standing and influence The committee's plan was to have two tutors at £270, and his plan would enable them to have three tutors at about £ 300, and he assured them that the churches of Brecon, Monmouth and Glamorgan would supply the cash. Concluding, Dr. Jones said that if that plan were adopted a good deal of his ob- jection to the College at Aberystwyth would be removed. Aberystwyth was too for away and out of touch with the churches. The college would serve its ptirposfe hotter if situated in a central place, such as Swansea, which was the most central town in Wales. I SOWN THE SEED. I The Moderator pointed out that no I specific resolution was embodied in Dr. Jones' notice, as it only called attention to the matter. Dr. Tones: I ha e sown the seed. I will give it a few months in which to grow. kir. n. W. Jones (Pengam) then moved tilv previous question, and the discussion ended. LAYMEN AS MODERATORS. I Tl>e> Rev. R R. Roberts, B.A. (Cardiff), I in a racy speech, proposed that laymen be eligible to be elected moderators, and that a layman be moderator once every three years. Mr. Evan Evans (Aberystwyth), seconded the motion, which has been before the association on previous occa- sions. It was now unanimously agreed to. PENSIONS FOR AGED MINISTERS. The Rev. T. Bowen, secretary of the Aged Ministers' Fund, said it was a proud moment for him to be in the happy position to announce that the fund to provide pensions for aged ministers was an accomplished fact. At a meeting held that morning they decided that the fund should be distributed as early as possible, the first grants to be made as from 1st January next. A sum of £ 14,000 had been collected in South Wales, including the £ 6,000 of the Llandinain family. I SUNDAY TRADING. i I South Wales Calvinists Press for I Special Legislation. At tho general meeting of the South Wal-es Cal vinistic Methodist Quarterly Association on Wednesday afternoon, at Aberavon, it was decided to hold the next meeting at Lampeter next April. The question of Sunday trading in Wales was mentioned in the report of the sub-committee presented by the Rev. M. H. Jones, B.A. Mr. Jones moved a reso- lution deprecating the growth of Sunday trading in Wales, particularly in the large industrial and mining areas, and urged upon the Home Secretary to bring ofrward sue' ial legislation to give ex- pression to the predominant demands of the Welsh people on the question. Mr. H. W. Evans, J.P., of Solva, Pem- brokeshire, seconded. Tho resolution was carried unanimously, and upon the suggestion of K. J. Morgan, Llwynypia, it was decided to appeal to church members to refrain from patron- ising the shops on Sundays, and also from buying Sunday newspapers. CENTRAL FUND. Movement to Amalgamate North and South. The question of collections towards the central fund had been discussed by the laymen at their session, and the Rev. T. Bowen (Cardiff) submitted a resolution to tho effect that until the scheme had been finally approved the committee should limit its activities to the question of a capital fund without referring the matter to the churches for contributions. It was also decided in order to facilitate the establishment of a worthy fund and to expedite the amalgamation of the North and South Wales schemes to ask the Xo. t Wales Association to sDd its scheme to the Joint Committee of the Commission. CHURCH STATISTICS. The statistics for West Glamorgan English Presbytery showed the number of churches 41, with seating accommodation for 19,887; ministers 33, increase of 4; dea- cons 99, decrease 5; communicants .J.L increase 26; children 2,7-11, a decrease of 142 (now only the children of members were included). The total number in the i congregation was 13,373, an increase of 1. Abstainers 3,608, an increase of 88. Total number of Sunday scholars and teachers 7.191, a decrease of 191; average attend- ance 1,587, a decrease of 274. Total collec- tions and contributions tl2,100, an in- crease of £ 1,891—an average of 199. Hid. per member. Attention was called to the feeble sup- port given to the connexional magazines, and the matter was commended to the notice of the monthly meetings. The Moderator said some people regarded ii as an act of charity to take the con- nexional literature. He assured them that they were of a level quite as high as some of the English magazines of a simi- lar nature. TREFECCA NOTICE QF MOTION. I At the close of the association meetings bhe secretary read a notice of motion given by Dr. Cynddylan Jones (1) that plenary powers granted" to the Collet! Committee be withdrawn; (2) that the members of the committee be elected every thre-e years in rotation; and (3) that Biblical theology be an e'-s?nti<? part of ? the training in Trefecca College, and that three tutors be appointed. —- —— «'———————————— PURiTY AND DRINK. I ———— I Straight Talk at the Association. The South W-les C M. Association: voiced their opinions in no uncertain manner on the question of temperance ami purity at a special public meeting held on Wednesday night. The Moderator (the Rev. R. J. Reca, M.A., Aberystwyth), who presided, said that no apology was needed fo'r thait, meeting, for they were not a flet of btck-I water fanatic. Unfortunately, war had' brouebt in it« trail; man v evil*. A» a pastor of a church he had welcomed back a large number of boys, but bis experi- ence was that personal loyalty to total abstinence had been a great deal cheeked by the social c tstoms in foreign coun- tries, in barracks and in towns during the war. Certa:n,v the question of tem- perance and purity had not been advanced by war. 'rhC)r3e Wio road the papers in those dayt3 realised that many seedy things have been happening, not only overseas bUI: a,t home. These conditions I called upon the church to open war upon these 80cial evi IA. I PUSSYFOOT IS HERE." The Rev. Thomas Francis (Hendro), touching upon State purchase of the Drink Trade, said that if t-hai- came about they would have to place upon all the breweries and public houses JOEUS Christ and Co." He appealed to the Church to have no truck with it. The Rev. J. Glyn Davies (Chester), sec- retary of North Wales Temperance ciatiob, said t'he great action of Amerioa in scrapping the drink deserved a cheer even in a Sassiwu. Thope great prophets of the British proletariat—Northcliffo, Bottomley and Co., said It can't be done." But Puss-foot is here—(Laughter) —and he says It can be done." I CARDIFF'S STREETS. The Rev. E. P. Jones (Cardiff) spok*. on Purity." He was surprised to hear the Lord Mayor of a South Wales city say that if you cleanse the streets of- Cardiff of a certain class, thon our wives and daughters will not be snfe 4n the streete of Cardiff." Why should his wefe and daughter be safer than the wives and daughters of other men? Why should anyone contract out and keep him- self, his wife and daughters clean at the cost of the davii a,tion of other men's wives and daughters?
