PORTHCAWL ALLOTMENTS. I COUNCtL'S BOLD SCHEME. I "LAND FOR ALL WHO CARE to APPLY." I reported in our last week's issue, the ouæLl.)Q of aHoiments was very thü[(f,h¡v -,OrLe into at Last week'& meeting of the Porthcawl CouncN. The matter wa.s intmdtuced by the reading of a ietl-er from the Buaj-d of Agriculture on !the subject of the supply of seed potatoes, ot.c., to smalt cultivators, and suggesting that publtc bodies should circufla.rise the pub- lic in. the master. Mr. Deere pro that that. be dmie. Mr. D. J. Recs, in seconding, suggested that n might be advisable to insert an ad- vertise.man.t in the local papers. Mr. Dan Davies en the other hand thought the nrst thing was to get the land. People in the town were asking "where a.re you going to get your taTid?" In oircnlaritring people on such subjects as aeed potatoes at tha.t stiage they were putting the cart before the horse. Mr. David Jones thought the Council should notify the County Council that they wanted Further powers. I*p to now the Sma'M Holdings Act had been a perfect failure ao faj- as Porthcawl wan concerned. He tnoved that they ask for the necessary powers. Thi W;lS carried. Later in the evening a similar riution was proposed by Mr. T. G. Jones. He moved that the Council approach the County Coun- cil with a view to the better working of the SmaJI HoMings Act in Porthcawl. There were many people in the town who felt ag- grieved: that they had not had land under the Act. He suggested that the County Coun- cil be asked to meet a deputation of that Council. At the present time they had six- teen appUca-nta for 15 acres. In that number were several who were able and wilihng to ioultivate 50 acrea. That, of ooursa. waa out of their power to deal with, but in order to facilitate mattery and with a- view to getting theae applicants the land they ha

FAREWELL AND PRESENTATIONI
FAREWELL AND PRESENTATION I TO PENCOED CLERIC. ] Some six months ago the Rev. W. G. Branch came to the Tillage in the capacity of curate of Pencoed and Brynna. In quite a remarkably s hort period of time he won the anection and esteem of nearly aJl who knew him. He was an ardent Temperance re- former ajid Prohibitionist. His temperance principle's and his fratemaJ. illations with Nonconformists made his presence in the vil- tage undesira-ble to & few who a-re on the side of the forces ot reactiem, and the few hare wen their triumph. His departure, however, waa not allowed to take place without the majority showing in tangible form their opinion of him. Hence the public meeting in the Public Hall on Fri- day of last week. The meeting was pt&- sided over by Mr. W. J. WaJford, who briefly etxpressed his regret at the departure of Mr. Branch. The nrst speaker was Mr. John Owen, Penprisk, who spoke of his admiration for Hi. Branch on account of the latter's Tcm- pe.ran..œ principles, his Ntraightforwardnesa, and his broadmindedness. The Rev. D. WA Howell said that Mr. Branch was leaving because of his Temper- ance principles and his friendly relations with Nonconformists. His principles had cos't him something, and Mrs. Branch had had to pay the cost as well. Mr. Branch be- iieved in the Holy Catholic Church. Some belonged to a section of the Christian Church and imagined that that section was the Chuii-ch. Mr. Branch was too big a man and too big a Christian for that. Miss Wilmott said Mj\ Branch was doing what our soldiers were doing, fighting for the right. He was leaving Pencoed because of doing 80. His short stay had already done good. There was need of more unity. Rev. D. Davies, Penuei Baptist Church, also teatined to. his admiration for Mr. Branch. Mr. Branch had a smile for every- body, and was a man of goodwill towards all. He was wiDing to be aH things to all men, in order that 11. might &are some. Refer- ence was aJao made to Mr. Branch's influence over boya, and to hM work in raising and carrying on a troop of Boy Scouts. Mr. Branch was a friend to the young people of aH denominations. He (Mr. Davies) had found out in his work as pastor thai Mr. Branch had innueneed peopte for good through visiting them in their homes. Mr. Br&nch's nrst concern, was to bring people to Christ nrst and t. the Church after. He (Hr. Da vies) was & better Baptist and a bet- ter Temperance man because of Mr. Branch's example of loyalty to principle. We needed more unity. There might still be need of more g&rden walls, but let us see to it that we had the open aky above. County Councillor John Rees, J.P., then presented Mr. Branch, on behalf of the sub- scribere, with an inkstand, which will have a suitable inscription upon it. Councillor Rets &aid he was glad to be present. He knew that the village wae losing a good ma-n in Josmg Mr. Branch. The testimony of his brother minister swas of special value, for they had the best means of knowing one an- other, and could best enter into each others' feelings and sentiments. He (Coun'ciHor Rees) waa glad to hear Mr. John Owen's tri- bute as coming from a Churchman. Refer- ence waa a!ao made to the fact that Mr. Branch had married a Calvinistic Methodist missionary in India. He wished them both all success in their new sphere. It was a grajid opportunity. In Mr. Branch's calling there was not only need of conceptions of doctrine, but also that that doctrine should become an experience. Councillor R&as then made the formal pre- sentation, accompanying the act with a few felicitous phrases. The gift was not t.) b<* regarded so much on account of its intrinsic value as for the feelings that prompted !t. Miss Cajia Davies at the same time pre- sented Mr. Bra-nch with a Treasury note case contaiTung a sum of money-in itself a most eloquent token of the attitude of the v',lage to the recipient. The note case itself was Mias Da-vies's own gift. In nuking the pre- sentation Miss Daviea aa.id that Mr. Branch's stay among them had been mos.t useful and had done much good. His departure was a loss to the village. She wished Mr. and Mrs. Branch all success in their new sphere. Mr. W. J. Wadford, speaking on behajlf of the Penuel Mutua-t Improvement Society, apologised for the non-arrival of the book which the Society had intended presentmg to the reverend gantlemaji, and which had been ordered. Mr. Branch carried with him the best wishes of the Mutual Improvement So- ciety, which was losing a most valuable mem- ber. In the papers Mr. Branch had read at the Society's meetuigs he ha

f HEOLYCYW AND DISTRICT NOTES I (By "StLURtAN.") While it is gratifying to be complimented verbally and by several letters on the con- sideration shewn at Heolycyvt and Heol- Laethog for soldiers' wives and children dur- ing the season of good-wiN, it ie very dis- appodnting to learn that no such consideration was shown in very many districts, wherw en- thusiasm ran commendably high two years ago, and where it was needed more than ever this year/when the purchasing power of the separation aJIowa.nœs.. by no means too liberal two or two and a half years ago, has so alarmingly decreased. 1 hare letters from Penygraig and Hirwain, stating that nothing whatever was done at those places. It is no- thing short of scandalous that our noble and gallant men's hardships abroad at the various fronts should be added to by the bitter thought that their loved ones at home, living in the midst of people whom this terrible war benents, should be neglected, and have to go with less comforts and necessaries than would have been the case if their relatives had shirked their duty to King and country, and remained at home, as thousands of them could have done. The truth is—and it should be told-there are thousands at our fronts who should be home, and thousands home who should be at our fronts, and among the latter thousands we have most of the people who will not raise a finger to help our brave soldiers' dependents. This is the day of judgment, and men proclaim to the world what they are made of. T It is now more than 60 years ago since the close of the Crimean War, during which, as now, the prices of many of th. necessaries of life soared beyond the reach of the very poor. Wheat reached a guinea a bushel, and hun- dreds in Glamorgan had to live on barley, wit

I SOUTH GLAMORGAN. LIBERAL FtVE HUNDRED RATtFY COUNOL'S CHOICE. -1 A large and representative gatheling of members of tho Liberal Fiva Hundred for South Glamorgan, held at Cardiff on Monday evening, selected with unanimity and enthu- siasm Mr. Evan D. Jones, of Pentower House, Fishguard, as prospective Liberal can- didate for the division. Mr. Samuel Thomas, J.P., Peoarth, the president, occupied the chair, and was sup ported by Mr. W. Jones Thomas, J.P., Barry, the hon. treasurer; Mr. Llewellyn Davies, Penarth, secretary; Messrs. E. H. Clothier and R. H. Seel, Dinas Powis; Mr. J. Lowdon, J.P., Barry; Mr. D. Morgan Bees, Whit- church; Mr. William PoweIL J.P., Bridgend; Councillor George T. Da vies, LIantrisant; Councillor William Phillips, Pontypridd; Mr. William Emerson, Sweldon; Messrs. E. T. Lloyd and Noah Morgan, Llantwit Major; Councillors D. Davies and D. J. Rees, Porth- cawl; Messrs. D. R. Morgan, Dinas Powis; E. Walton, Barry; Rev. W. E. Evans, Llan- bethery; Mr. Tom John, Penygraig, and othera. The omcers of the Association were re-elected for the ensuing year. Mr. E. D..Jones, who had a hearty recep- tion, said that at the present time all sound of party strife was happily ended, but there must come a time when party interests would be as wide as the poles. This would\)nly take place, however, when the objects for which they had unsheathed the sword had been at- tained. (Cheers.) After reviewing the war, and declaring that the nnancial policy of the Liberal party prior to the war had stood the greatest test that could ever have been im- posed upon it, he said that the part taken in .this colossal stT-,(4gle by our leaders would only be seen in tLS true greatness when their actions could he seen in true perspective. (Cheers.) As for the future, there would be a new race of men, altered by experience and purihed by sacrinces. There wouldhaT8 to be social re-organisation by a proper system of education, by community of interests as be- tween Capital and Labour, and by re-organi- sation of the great industrial questions of the day. (Cheers.) Subsequently, Mr. W. Jones Thomas, J.P. Barry, proposed the adoption of Mr. E. D. Jones as candidate. Mr. Tom John, who at tbo Executive Corn mittee- proposed the name of Mr. A. A. Thomas, of the National Uniait of Teachers, seconded the proposition. Mr. Mildon (Radyr), who had submitted the name of Lieutenant Tudor Rees to the Execu- tive, also supported the motion, which, when put, was unanimously amd enthusiastically carried. I Mr. E. D. Jones returned thanks, and ex- pressed the conndent hope that, with their aid, he would be able to carry the old flag of I Liberalism once moro to victory. (Cheers.)

a. -.n HOW DRUGS DELUDE DYSPEPTICS r A MENACE TO HEALTH. Dyspeptics who take drugs commit a. crime against their health, for drugs do not cure dyspepsia, neither do they possess the powef to neutralise acid in the stomach, which is the underlying cause of most forms of diges- tive a.nd stomach trouble. Drugs may ap- pear to give reUef in some cases of indiges- tion and dyspepsia, but that is because they numb the nerves of the stomach and render them insensible to pain.
