INDIGESTION CAN BE WARDED OFF
INDIGESTION CAN BE WARDED OFF! Most of us art-, liible to have indigestion. Our ever-changeful climate severely taxes the j digestive organs, our modern habit of d(piiig everything in a hurry leaves the stomach little repose, and we can't always spare the time to eat slowly and rest awhile afterwards. On!y a strong healthy stomach can stand the conditions of modern life, and if you toward off pains after eating, a sense 01 uilness and weight, ihituiencc, and all the other miseries of indigestion, you must keep your stomach healthy and strong. If for any reason your stomach loses tone and efficiency, take Mother Seigel's 'Syrup after your meals for a while, and note the improvement in your health—the increase of your vigour. Be sure you get the genuine Mm her Seigel's Syrup. No other remedy before the public possesses its splendid powers of toning up and strength- ening the stomach, and of gently stimulating of.lhfeJ.iver.and bowels

Give mt ahove all other liberties, the liberty to knew, to utter, and to argae freely, according to conscience."—John Milton. RECRUITING. To the Editor of the Barry Dock News." Sir,—I find that there are hundreds of men in my Recruiting Sub-area (Barry. Penarth, Dirias Powis, and the districts around), who have not at- tested under the Group System, nor obtained certificates of exemption under the Military Service Act. I write to appeal to all men to come up and join the Group System whilst it is open. The Recruiting Office is open from 9 until 8 every day, and the last day for Single men joining will be Wednesday next. J. A. HUGHES, Col. R.O., Barry. BARRY CHAMBER OF TRADE AND PRICE OF GAS. To the Editor of the Barry Dock I News." Sir,—In your issue of the 18th in- stant, in the report of the Barry Dis- trict Council meeting, it is stated that a letter was received from the Barry Chamber of Trade expressing disap- proval of the action of the Gas and 'Water Committee in not raising the price of gas. As a matter of fact, the letter of the Chamber of Trade ex- pressed approval of that course, not disapproval, and I should be glad if you would publish this letter.—Yours faithfully, A. T. HAMMOND, Secretary. I 11 A DANGtER TO THE COM- itUNITY." To the Editor of the Barry Dock News." Sir,-In last week's issue was a let- ter signed A Britisher." Permit me to say how little the writer knows of what he speaks. There needs to be very little foisting done to attain to office; as a matter of fact, look where you will, you will find that the most I active trade unionist, as a rule, is an I.L.P.'er, and he gets there through sheer ability and usefulness. He naturally comes to the top in spite of himself, and to-day is giving the lead to the trade union movement through- out the country. Secondly, as to being pro-Germans. This proves how ignor- ant any person must be as to what the I.L.P. stands for. If there was as little pro-German about many individuals and companies that we have in the country to-day, as there is in the I.L.P., it would be a good job for us, and we would not then be getting fleeced like we are now, but should be having the necessaries of life at a much more normal rate. Thirdly, as to being wind-bags, soap-box orators, and ver- min, only a person who has no argu- ment resorts to such utterances. There are no more able men in this country than those who are leading the I.L.P., and while we are to-day taking the stand which makes us unpopular, we shall, soon or late, have our turn. Our business is to do what we know to be right, and that we mean to do, and to call us such names but honours us. One was crucified because He did what He thought was right. LOCAL MEMBER, I. L P LOCAL fEMBER! I.L.P. EMPLOYMENT OF ALIENS AT DOCK WORKSHOPS. I To the Editor of the Barry Dock News." Dear Sir,-AVill you permit me, through your columns, to warn fellow- workmen of a grave matter which at present gives promise of menacing our future occupations, unless prompt ac- tion be taken to prevent such an occur- rence. I mean the gradual introduc- tion of foreign labour (skilled and un- skilled) into the dock workshops. Lately the employment of aliens has increased to an alarming .extent, and it is not a very cheerful proposition to find these foreigners jumping into jobs formerly occupied by men who are now somewhere in France," and also of others who have been called up by the group system. Surely it was never the intention of the Government to allow those responsible for the working of the controlled establishments to in- I suIt our fighting men in this fashion. It is common knowledge that as far as our sea-going population is con- cerned, the Bristol Channel ports were in the past the dumping ground for the world's riff-raff, and we shall undoub- tedly have an experience of this in our workshops unless we immediately lodge a protest. Having had considerable experience in connection with the em- ployment of labour, I can candidly as- sure my fellow-workmen that once the susceptible alien gets firmly established he will take some shifting, and will never go back home. Furthermore, we must not lose sight of the fact that as soon as this war ter- minates, there is bound to be a big slump in the ship-re-pairing trade, when tho presence of the alien will be most strongly felt. Therefore we must prevent him making a bed of roses of the job Tommy left behind. Our ab- sentees are fighting for their King and Country, and for the interests of the employers especially, and it is the duty of those who are exempt from military service to' see that the great sacrifices made shall be appreciated by the em- ployers otherwise than by filling the gaps with aliens.—Yours faithfully, FRED J. TUCKER. I 24, Llewellyn-street, Cadoxton-Barry.
I SMARTING PILES CURED
I SMARTING PILES CURED. I FARMER'S WIFE AND ZAM-BUE'S I FA-R.Afl,,R,S IVIFE A-i\']D Z.A?NT-BUK'S i I POWER. II Further clear proof of Zam-Buk's great soothing and healing power is furnished by Mrs. A. L. Burbage, of Taylor's Farm, Burton Green, near Christchurch, Bournemouth. "I suffered terribly from itching, burning piles," sa;"d Mrs. Burbage to a "Bournemouth Guardian" reporter. "They were so bad that I was away from work at the dairy about two months, and for a fortnight I had to stay in bed. Sleep was impossible, and the constant irritation fairly wore me out. "Having found Zam-Buk very use- ful for painful cuts and bruises, I now tried the balm for my piles. A few ap- I plications of soothing Zam-Buk con- vinced me that I had found the right remedy at last, for this herbal balm allayed the torturing pain. As I kept up .the treatment, the smarting piles went away. I have been quite free from this distressing complaint for some time. ".This lis not the only time I have used Zam-Buk. Living opposite the village sciiool, I often have children brought to me when they hurt themselves. One little boy, wlion playing on the village green. was cut on the head by a slate. Zam-Buk quickly healed the place. A nurse who saw the boy remarked how splendidly the broken skin had knitted together. "A young woman fractured her leg in a cycle accident. Although treated by a doctor, the limb, after being set, would not heal properly. I advised her to use Zam-Buk. IV, hilst treating her leg with Zam-Buk, some splinters of loose bone that had prevented the wound healing came away on the band- ages. The place was then quickly healed up by Zam-Buk. "In many other cases I have recom- mended Zam-Buk, and always with the best results. Be sure you get Zam-Buk. Beware of cheap imitations and useless substi- tutes. )
I TO APHRODITE
I TO APHRODITE. Thou art more fair than April's sunny lfower, Half hidden in the dewy grass; More radiant than the trembling leaves in shower, As sunbeams thro' them pass: More pure than winter's raiment white, When moon-beams kiss the sparkling ground; More dear to me than summer's golden light, On Nature's brow with autumn leaflets crowned. Thy smile, to me, a gift of rarest worth, Can compensate my saddest thought; Thy life brings fragrant beauty to the earth, A radiance God has wrought. My heart, thy lovely face to greet, Leaps up for joy, when thou art nigh; Across thy path, I fling all flowers sweet, With one heart's wish that they would never die. I Barry Pocks. G.M.T. I

LOCAL PLACES OF PUBLIC 1 AMUSEMENT 4
LOCAL PLACES OF PUBLIC 1 AMUSEMENT. ,4 THEATRE ROYAL, BARRY. 1 Visitors to the Theatre Royal, B?rry? 1 on the first three evenings of this we4 1 have been treated to a -thoroughly en- joyable bill of fare. One visits the Theatre, and experience promotes one to anticipate a programme worth see- ing. "Destiny," or "The Soul of a Woman," was the star item, and was supported by such excellent dramas as His Two Patients," and At the Pos- tern Gate." Charlie Chaplin, in one of his amusing comedies, was responsible for roars of laughter by his antics and mischievous pranks as champion writ server. Other comics were Avenged by a fish and For better but worse." The exact state of affairs at the front were vividly illustrated in Pathe's Ani- mated Gazette, and part three of the British Army iij France. The title of part three was "The making of an officer with the Artists' Rifles," and was greatly enjoyed. Marse "Covington," a Metro film, will be the principal item of a really great programme of pictures to be screened to-night (Thursday), and the remainder of the week. "The Secret of the Cellars," and episode eleven of the splendid serial, The Broken Coin," will support the star. The eleventh episode cf this enthralling serial shows the war between Coronia and Koinardia, and the part taken therein by Lucille Love, Roleaux, and Hugo Loubeque. Roleaux and Hugo engage in a terrific fight on the train. The comedies are Fickle Flo's Flirtation and A' Lucky Leap," whilst Pathe's Animated Gazette concludes a decidedly enjoy- able exhibition. On Monday next Mr. Fred Clements, who recently scored such a success at Barry with his popular pantomime, Aladdin/' will present the same com- pany in a musical revue, entitled, "I'm Sorry." The revue was written by Mr. Jimmy Coyens, who takes a leading part in the production, and the caste includes such clever and capable ar- tistes as Miss Mabel Hind, Miss Evely-a Grace, Messrs. Willy Cave, Jimmy Coyens, and Sidney Bray. Novel and unique.dances will be presented by the Brewster Quintette of dancers. The varieties include Newco and Sullo, the eccentric pair, Ada Durham, comedienne and dancer, the latest comedy picture, and Brocks Comedy Cyclists. The chorus will consist of a bevy of bright and beautiful girlss who combine clever acting with sweet voices, and the augmented orchestra will be under the capable direction of Mr. Arthur Rawson. I'm Sorry will undoubtedly prove as great a suc- cess as Aladdin." No higher praise, can be bestowed. ROMILLY HALL, BARRY. This week end, "The Stolen Actress," an engrossing story of Bohemian life, in three reels, will be the star item of a well arranged programme at the Roinilly Hall this week end. This production in one of Pasqnal's best. The photography and plot aro exceptionally good and the acting excellent. Part 4 of Our Navy will also be included in the programme. Next week, the first of a series of Great World Productions will be screened, entitled "Alias Jimmy Valentine," Paul Ausking's famous play; featuring that capable artist, Robert Warwick. This picture, which is in five reels, created a great sensation in America, and has been very favourably receivpd in this country wherever shewn. It is of really extraordinary merit, :a detective crime drama in the very front rank of film accomplishments. A veritable feast of sensation and isetitiment. Striking characters and some of the most magnificent acting ever witnessed on the screen is shewn in this film. It was recently exhibited in Sing Sing Prison and the remark of Jimmy Valentine that every crook would go straight if he got the chance, was cheered to the echo. Fancy fourteen hundred men imprisoned for every known crim^, wildly cheering- the buri< d instinct of good, the yearning fora better life beingbroughtto the surface by this excellent picture play. KING78 HALL, BARRY. One of the most popular productions of the celebrated Metro Film Company will be produced on the first three evenings of next week at the King's Hall, Barry, "When a Woman Loves" being the feature of an attractive pro- gramme. This film deals with the sacrifices a woman will make when she loves and is not loved. Supporting When a Woman Loves will be the latest war pictures and "The British Army in France," part four, showing a machine-gun school at the Front. A full programme of the latest dramas and comedies will be shown.
