THE WAR. Friday. ANOTHER ZEPPELIN RAID. Once more we have made an advance to. wards Thiepval. Yesterday afternoon our troops pushed forward 300 yards, capturing an enemy trench 400 yards in length. British Headquarters, reporting this last night, added that many prisoners are being taken in this sector. Sixty-two more came in yesterday. The exact number taken haa yet to be ascertained. On Wednesday night the enemy made strenuous efforts to retake the ground he had lost between the station and quarry of Guillemont. He began a severe bombard- ment just before 9 o'clock, and then launched a strong infantry attack. It was pressed with such determination that it reached our parapet in places, but after a sharp struggle was completely re- pulsed everywhere with heavy losses to the losses to the enemy. The French yesterday afternoon also re- carded an enemy attack against the Sove- court Wood. It was immediately checked i • u'r ^re" S

Hu.gh,- Y ou will have only just had my letter informing you of the serious ill- ness of your son and before this the War Office will most likely have informed you of his death. I may say that the conversation i had with him last Friday was really the la-C time he said anything with full" con- sciousness. He slept a very great deal, and it was with eiffiouity he could "be aroused to take nourishment, and when I last saw him he was souui asleep; even the doctor exami- nin him did not arouse him. iind from this steep he passed through the portals of death When I had my last t'alk with him I spoka mostly in Welsh, which greatly pleased him. And I arr glad to say that rlw Faith in u- U ^.lt* keen brought up was that in which he died. This is your consolation in your sorrow and bereavement. I officiated at his funeral in the military cemetery, Old Cairo. His grave is No. 1123 F. You will,, no doubt, receive any personal property pe- 101 girig to him in due course. He leceived every attention possible, and could not have been better looked after had he been with you Commending you to Him who alone can comfort and heai the broken-hearted. He was buried with full military honours. the coffin was draped with the Union Jack, and the firing party fired three rounds and the Last Post was sounded bv the bugler. .1- am. with deep sympathy, yours faith- fully.

A LETTER FROM THE REV J DYFNALLT OWEN
A LETTER FROM THE REV. J. DYFNALLT OWEN Dear Sir,—I shall feel obliged if you will allow the following letter to appear in your next issue. I should like to acknowledge gifts (if books from Miss Lewis, Cavendish House, King-street; Messrs. D. Williams- King-street; Owen Jones. Dark-gate; and D. H. Thomas, Water -street. -You 1-9 faithfully, ÍIERY HOWELL. Tessera House, Carmarthen, August 28th, 191(6. Dear Mr. Howell ,-I am deeply indebted to you for your interest in my work here. Will you kindly thank the Carmarthen friends through the papers not only for the books but for other gifts which have been so-it me direct. F-or the last fortnight I have been respon- sible for the work in another camp just two mile.s from the line. The work here is most interesting whatever the drawbacks, or may I say the adventures. This is the most advanced place we have in the direction I am at present. Last Sunday I had the greatest experienco of my life. I was a.sked to take the Brigade Service of a well- known Welsh Brigade. I slept on Saturday night in a. little village partly demolished by shells, and on Sunday morning before I got up they were dropping uncomfortably close. So we got up—the chaplain and myself—at 6 a.m. and were soon on our way towards trenches. We passed through a village in ruins—the oity of death and destruction: crossed a bridge which has figured much in the war and went along the communication trench until we came to a certain place, where I was /privileged just for a moment to look over a parapet and see the trenches and No Man's Land and beyond that awful place a historic battlefield and a big town looming in tne morning mist. We returned without any mishap in time for the 9 o'clock parade. I took both services, English and Welsh, in that battered village: then we cycled to another village, where I took both services again, in the open air. and cele- brated the Holy Communion in the open air on a little green in the afternoon. To me, it was a historic occasion to preach to my countrymen in the zone of fire. The officers ",?r.e, almost to a man not only •i J'" speech but Welsh in ideals and sentiments. The language of the mesb was Welsh. The little cemeterv where lies a young Carmarthen officer was near the secluded spot where I looked towards No Man s Land m the morning. I longed to go and see it, but it was too unhealthy," and the chaplain advised me to be satisfied with what I had seen. My work here is almost done, and though one's heart longs for dear old Wales and quiet Carmarthen, yet mv heart is Bore at the thought that the time. to part with these heroes is so neaiy. Again thanking you for your interest in the work.—I am. yours faithfully, J. DYFNALLT OWEX. B.E.F., France. A 24th. 1916.
NATIONAL MISSION. [To the Editor of the CARMARTHEN JOURNAL.] Sir,—-Knowing that many of your readers are anxious to secure united services during the coming Church Mission, the following account of what has actually taken place for some time now will interest them. In a small country town in the North of England soon after the war broke out. the vicar of the parish called a meeting of the different denominations, and asked if they would join him in arranging to have a weekly united service of intercession and prayer. All readily agreed to this, it was settled to have the service on one evening in the week so as not to interfere with the Sunday services. One week the same is held in the Church of England, the next at the Baptist Chapel, and so on in turn. Many members of the different denominations attended at each place of worship and join thus in a hearty service. It has been a great help and benefit to the people, thus drawing them all together, and to crown all, although many men frum that town and district have gone to the front and to sea and been in great perils, not one had up to the last month been killed. When this fact was remarked upon, a member of the Congregational church replied: We believe that God has heard our united prayers and mercifully spared our sons." Surely this ought to be on example which our National Church in W ales should follow and sinking all pettv differences of creed, join in brotherly love in pleading before the Father of all. L. E.

CARMARTHEN AUCTION MART
CARMARTHEN AUCTION MART. The weekly mart was held on Wednesday, when there was an enormous quantity of stock entered. An eKceptionally good all- round trade was experienced. A large entry of lambs met a good trade at fully late rates, in fact for some of the choicest lots, these were higlner, 7d. per lb. being the top price. There was a good demand for breed- ing ewes which made from 50s. to JE5 per head There was still a good demand for pigs, but the price was not quite as high as recently, some of the farmers, expecting to get late rates, were disappointed, and a few pens were unsold. For a large entry of fat cattle trade was particularly keen, late rates being fully maintained, and an absolute .clearance of nearly every lot. Prices made for fat oattle were from 918 to £ 33. A prime bunch of bullocks averaging jE32 apiece. The demand for cows and calves was very keen. 1:30 being, a very ordinary price; as much as J636 1Gs. was obtained for the best cow. Owing to the Annual Ram Sale the sale on Wednesday next will commence with the cows and calves at 10.30. Farmers are requested to note.
RHEUMA TlSMKIDNEY TROUBLE
RHEUMA TlSM-KIDNEY TROUBLE Rheumatism is due to uric acid and crystals in the joints and muscles, the resuh of excessive uric acid in the system that tho kidneys railed to remove a nature intended, and this acid is also the cause of backache lumbago, sciatica, gout, urinary trouble,- stone, lumbago, dropsy. The success of Estora Tablets for the treatment of rheumatism and other forms of kidney trouble is due to the fact that they restore the kidneys to healthy action and thereby remove the cause of the trouble, and have cured numberless cases after the failure of other remedies, which accounts for them superseding out-of-date medicines that are sold at a price beyond all but the wealthy.
