If Mr. Ashton went it would injure the scientific department of the school. If it was a teacher of classics or mathematics the filling of vacancies would be easier than to nil the position of teacher of phvsics.

Leg a Mass of Scab
Leg a Mass of Scab. Terribte Dischargtng Sores Heated by Zam Buk Another remarkable cure by Zam-Buk has been recorded at Honiton, East Devon. When interviewed by a representative of the Western Times at her home, Claylands, Mrs. Hatherley readily gave particulars of the cure of her bad leg by Zam-Buk. "I had a very bad leg," she said; "in fact, such was my condition that I began to fear that I should be a permanent. invalid. My trouble started with a spot, about the size of a half- penny, which spread entirely over my right leg. The skin scabbed and scaled, and at times there I was a terrible discharge. I' "My leg was one mass of scab, and the irrita- tion was so intense that sleep was out of the question. I felt I could tear my leg to pieces. ) I went to the chemist, and later to the doctor, but neither of them did me a particle of good. They gave me lotions and ointments, with which I persevered for some time, but without getting any benefit. "Then I saw Zam-Buk advertised, and decided to try it, as a last resource. I felt relieved after the first application. I could feel the scabs lifting under the influence of Zam-Buk, which I applied liberally on a clean bandage twice a day. After each application I felt better, until after a week or two's treatment I was perfectly cured. All the bad matter was drawn out of the inflamed sores, which then nlled up with healthy new Sesh. Tt is now nearly twelve months since Zam-Buk cured me, and my leg is still perfect, there being no sign of a further outbreak. My cure is wholly attributable to the wonder- working Zam-Buk." It is always the wisest and cheapest plan to depend solely upon Zam-Buk to heal your wounds and skin sores. Zam-Buk's reputation is world wide, and results show there is nothing to equal it for eczema, ringworm, piles, poisoned 1 sores, gatherings, cuts, bruises, etc.

¡ Penparke Notes. The following appeared in the Rochdale I Times'' of April 7th ;The official news was received in Rochdale on Thursday of the death in action on March 10th of Private Joseph Ash- worth, of the Lancashire Fusiliers, who was, ing staff of the Rochdale Times. The in- formation was conveyed to his parents, who now live in Edinburgh, and formerly resided in Aberystwyth, and was forwarded by them to I this office. It was a coincidence that on ti same morning another member of the "Times" sta.S received a letter from his brother, who is also in the Lancashire Fusiliers, stating tha t Private Ashworth, whom he knew personally, had met his death. Private Ashworth was 25 years of age. He was trained as a reporter on the "Cambrian News, Aberystwyth. and joined the "Times" staff in December of 1912. He joined the colours in November of last year, and after receiving his training at Southport and Ripon he wa.6 sent out to France in th<: early part of February. The letter already re- ferred to states that he met his death the nrst time he went into the trenches. He was a courteous and genial young man, and was highly popular with all who knew him. He was particularly well-known in the Littleborough district, which he worked for a considerable period on behalf of this paper. Private Ashworth lodged in Exeter-street and was connected with St. Luke's Church, Deeplish. Another brother is serving with the forces in Mesopotamia. A JOURNALIST'S TRIBUTE. His work is done. At duty's call he laid His pen aside and, heeding not the cost, Facing the foe his all he freely gave, Counting for freedom's sake his life well lost. His work is done. His work is done. Full soon his tale of years Is ended. Mother Earth reclaims her own, And in heroic guise his spirit soars To reap the fruit of freedom bravely sown. His work isdone. His work is done. And we who knew him best, His genial spirit, smile that ever shone, Can only mourn and hope that he may rest In peace secure, and meanwhile look upon His work well done. A.J.M.

WELSH FARM COLONY
WELSH FARM COLONY. When the Welsh party meet a report may be obtained from the Board of Agriculture regard- ing the choice of site for the Welsh Farm Colony for ex-service men. Sir Richard Winfrey has now completed his inspections, but there has been some delay owing to the question of what has to be paid for the Carmarthenshire site. The Welsh sub-committee hope eventually to utilise both sites, and that it is quite likely Board of Agriculture sanction will be obtained for this course.
(Continued from previous column.) the border arrived to-day, and he gave us not ing but good news from all parts. February 25th.-A Belgian soldier put in cells on suspicion. He was caught making a map. February 26th.-Great search made for maps and found, too safely hidden. March lst.-Two men given three days cells each for not reporting themselves as unwell' March 8th.-Three men made a daring escape by pushing out a sheet of corrugated iron. Another failed to get away, and was found in bed fully dressed and promptly put in cells The officers had their town walk stopped to- day, because they refused to promise to re- port any news they might get of the escaped men! The nurses were also refused permission to go out. March 9th.—Increased precautions taken to prevent escapes. All suspects to sleep in cells at night; thorn bushes piled round the camp as a fence; all to sleep in one room. March llth.—The three runaways brougl" back, they were tied together with ropes, with both hands behind their backs, put into a cell as they were, and refused food or drink. They had to remain tied thus, absolutely helpless, in a standmg position for forty-eight hours. This is the most barbarous crime yet com- mitted by the Germans here and the camp is in a state of revolt, and the guards have been doubled. March 12th.—A missionary put in cells, be- cause a map of his was found on one of the recaptured prisoners. The missionary was utter- ly ignorant of the fact, as the map had been taken, without permission out of one of his books. He was released later. March 13th.-Between 80-90 of us are herded at night in one long room. The space allowed is nve inches between every two beds. Light is kept on all night, and native soldiers walk up and down, being changed every two hours. These soldiers are cheeky and insulting, and at times dangerous. It is beastly! March 14th.-Renewed search for maps. March 22nd.-Our concession of being able to buy extra food stopped. March 24th.-The first South Africans cap- tured prisoners-twelve, in number-arrived. March 25th.-Arrested for having a neld- glass in my possession, and also the famous copy of the "Bystander." March 27th.-Archdeacon Woodward of the U.M.C.A., a man of some sixty and more years, and who has served in "German" East Africa since 1875, in the work of educating the natives, etc., was sworn at and threatened with seven days cells for venturing to ask the officer in charge of the camp for the return of one of our nurses from the German hospital to assist the nurse in camp. He was told that the per- sons of the nurses, like the persons of other prisoners, were at the beck and call and dis- posal of the Germans! March 28th.-Put on my trial and acquitted of all charges, as I had not been specifically told I had to give up neldglasses, etc. But it was considered a grave matter, and I should have to consider myself as being considered a suspect!

PONTRHYDFENDIGAID. On Saturday evening a public meeting was held under the auspices of the National Service Association. The chair was occupied by Dr. Morgan, J.P., Pontrhydygroes, and the Rev. R. J. Rees, M.A., Aberystwyth, was the speaker. In his opening address the Chairman referred to the cruel atrocit;,fs of the enemy. The pre- parations made by the Germans for years greatly handicapped the Allies, but the pro- gress made to combat difficulties was wonder- ful. Much was yet :'0 be done and all should deem it their duty to assist the Government in every possible way. however little. The Rev. R. J. Rees said he always liked to address a Bont audience, and to have Dr. Morgan as chairman. His business that evening was to try and infuse enthusiasm into the people to undertake their duty to assist the Allies in bringing this terrible war to a speedy end. National service meant that all should be patriots not on]y in love for their country but also in serving it. defend it. and help it in the hour of peri! and need. To do that effectively they should submit to some central authority, obey the call for help, and perform it with a will whatever sacrinces it entailed. They should remember the sacrifices made by our brave lads under great disadvan- tages as compared with the perfectly-equipped German armies. Our boys demurred not, grumbled not, but calmly struggled en as soldiers always did. "Their's not to reason why. their's but to do and die." No choice of work, no place to suit their fancy, or power to defer its performance at pleasure, but all had to stand at "attention" and be ready to set off on their task at the word of command. He was sure n ne present considered themselves less brave or greater cowards than those at the front. None of them wished to be dubbed as cowards, and b-, regarded as the refuse of the coærJunity when the war was over because they row re- fused to do their part for their country and help those at the front. All they had to do w&s to enrol for national service and be ready to under- take work selected for them by those in con- trol. The controller knew where help was most needed on farms, in' mines, in munition works, in lumbering, and the hundreds of industries which provided for the needs of the army in all its varied work and for the nation. Be hoped every one would say, Wele fi, anfon n." The address was listened to with rapt attention and greatly appreciated. The meeting was closed with the usual votes of thanks.
