Edna and Doris are also a turn of great merit, being clever spec- iality dancers. The pictures were of the usual up-to-date order, the star of the past three evenings being "Shad- ows of the Past," and one of the many ensations of this fine film was the great collision with the express train and motor car in which travelled the yillain, on the railway bridge.

The first- part -of this magnificent serial was shown last week-end to crowded houses and wceived quite an ovation. There was no doubt about the great reception of ~li Flower of the Flame," the first, in- stalment, and the second episode wili Ze eagerly looked forward to by all who were fortunate etnough to see the lJr,t part. It is doubtful if tihare has -been filmed at any time a drama, with more sensational episodes, more feat-s daring, or more stirring, yet plausi- ble plot, than tho Trey o' Hearts.' It is destined to mark a new eptoch in Cinematography. Miss Cleo Madison heads the cast, which includes another trans-Atlantic star, Mr. George Larkin. Both art.istes endured sonie most trying -cxperiences in the filming of the story and narrowly escaped death on several -occasions in performing feats of daring to give zest to tihe drama. A rem'ark- able feature of this series is the fiact that Miss Madison plays the double ro le of the twin sisters, Rose and Judith Trine, who respectively sym- bolize good and evil. This involves ,ko-nie of the most remarkable examples of double exposure ever attempted in the history of the cinematograph art. AUo included in this week-end pro- -gramme will be a three reel dram'a, Entitled, In the Grip of Spies." Next week Miss Florence Turner will appear in a realistic emotional drama, written by herself, entitled, Through, the Valley of Shadows" in three acts. This is admitted to be one -of the most sticcoasdiiil portrayals of this great actress. The patrons of the Romilly Hall are suretty in for a great "treat nQxt Monday, Tuesday, and Wed- nesday.

WHAT MAKES WOMEN UNFITI
WHAT MAKES WOMEN UNFIT? I Nature's "best handiwork" never was intended to be handicapped by illness, as so many women are; Nature's inten- tion never was that women, should be less free and capable, as women, than men are as men. Yet how frequently young girls, business women, house-I wives, and mothers complain of feeling I, "unfit." W hat makes the growing girl so lan- guid, the business girl so depressed, te housewife and mother so over- whelmed with worries and cares? What gives rise to the headaches and I weaknesses that unfit women for life's joys and duties? The answer is, BIoodlessness. Girls grow into "unfit" women if they lack the help of new blood during their teens; business girls become bloodless from too much indoor occupation, hasty meals, and insufficient exercise; housewives overtax their blood by over- work, over-anxiety, nursing, neglect- ing the need of sufficient sleep, regular meals and fresh-air relaxation. Hence I the blood becomes watery. But women who keep their blood ¡ rich and red. never need fear illness. t Wholesome food, sufficient rest, and I Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale I People will keep evety woman's health right. These pills alone have proved a priceless boon to weak ansemic women, a.nd if you suffer, you should try them. Obtain Dr. Williams' Pink Pills at your dealers to-day. but do not accept substitutes.

DYGWYL DEWI AT BARRY
"DY'GWYL DEWI" AT BARRY. STIRRING CELEBRATIONS IN THE DISTRICT. INTERESTING FESTIVITIES IN THE SCHOOLS. WELSH DRAMA PERFORMED BY THE CYMRODORION SOCIETY. Loyal Welshmen of the Barry dis- trict joined in the celebration of St. David's Day on Monday last with whole-hearted enthusiasm this year, and with that inexorable fervour which has helped to make the gallant li ttle land of the Cymry such a great and respected force amongst, the Nations of the World. Two outstanding features marked the occasion this year. Firstly, it was the five-hundredth anniversary of the death of Owen Glen dower (Owain Glyedwr), the greiatest Welshman who ever lived, whose life was permeated with an unflinching determination to defend the honour and freedom of his Country; and. secondly, was a hun- dred years to the day when General Sir Thomjas Picton, that brave son of Cymru, who was Wellington's right- hand maoi in his greatest bat-ties, died fighting for his country at Waterloo. Lt. would 'have been impossible to have celebrated the historic event with a greater feeling of patriotism and loyalty than that of the Welsh folk of I: Barry. Everywhere there was an ex- pression of deep-rooted affection for the Motherland, as well as of due appre- ciation of the things which really count in the life of the people. Advantage was taken of the occasion to hold a National Flag Day, for the purpose of raising funds to purchase comforts for the Welsh Troops, and the pretty little emblem sold in the streets of Barry by young ladies, was rda.dily purchased by thousands of people, including many scores of foreigners at the Docks. Of course, the presence of the 12th Welsh Regiment, stationed in the town, added to the warmth of the celebrations, the sol- diers, who were granted a day's leave, proudly wearing the leek in their caps I as they marched through the towrn sing- ing, as only Welsliimeii can, the martial airs in their own tongue. At the Glamorgan Training College at Barry, at the County Schools, at all the schools in the district, and at the National and Council Schools, Dinas I, Powis, there were children's celebra- tions based on the suggestions in the I booklet issued by the Board of Educa- tion. There were penillion singing, sketches, recitations, and solos, and I historic representations, whilst ad- dresses suitable to the 'occasion were delivered to the children, who will long remarnher the loyal enthusiasm with which St. David's Day of 1915 was observed. ¡ ROLL OF HONOUR AT HANNAH- STREET SCHOOL. A rol'l of honour, containing ninety names of former scholars who have joined the ranks—and over twenty nlore are yet to be added-wa,s un veiled at Hannah-stree-t Boys' School by Councillor S. R. Jones, J.P., chairman of the District Council, who congratu- lated the school upon its excellent re- cord, and paid tribute to tilie memory of the late Mr. J. E. Rees, remarking thiat the spirit of patriotism which was so much taught by the deceased gentle- man in past years still reigned supreme in the school to-day. The roll of honour, which is a fine piece of work, exlelciitlld by Mr. George Cole, of Cardiff, a former scholar. INTERESTING CELEBRATIONS BY BARRY CYMRODORION. Tt xa-oiild be inl possible to surpass the enthusiasm which was characteristic of the St. David's Dav celebration of the Il:1 fry Cynirpdoriou Society. This- II' tr- year the event was held in St.. Mary's I Hall, on Monday evening, the building, being filled with WeMi folk doing honour to the memory of their Patron Saint. Appropriate mottoes adorned the w la lis, whilstiiiaiav present were at- tired in Welsh costume. The chair was occupied by Mr. Edwin Lewis, the president of the Society. A feature of the event was the performance of the Welsh drama, "Cülli ac Ennill," writ- ten by Mr.. W. Biryn Davies, the vice- president of the Society. The Preisident, in a brief address, made a strong plea for the retention of the Welsh language, and congratu- lated the Society upon its flourishing I condition. Four of the members, Miss Esther Phillips, Miss Ray M. Jones, Mr. J. G. Jones, and Mr. James Wil- liams, had piassed the gorsedd examin- ation during the year; and he paid tribute to the committee and secretary for their untiring efforts. The Barry Cynnrodorion were doing much in spreading the language which they all so much loved. (Applause.) Poetic addresses were given by the bards, H AJrlihen" (Mr. D. Arthen Evams), "Garn" (Rev. R. Garn Adams), Iouan Gwendraeth (Mr. J. G. Jones), and Gwyndaf" (Mr. J. WiHiams). Little Nansi Williams, daughter of the late Councillor John Williams and Mrs. Williams, figured in a pretty ceremony. It was the presentation of handsome silver badges to the officers of the Society, and to Mr. D. J. Mar- tin, in memory of the late lr. Wil- liams, ex-president and treasurer. Some time before his death, whilst speaking at a Welsh gathering in the grounds of Cardiff Castle, the deceased gentleman expressed the desire to make the presentations, but he passed away before his wish could be gratified. Mrs. Williams, however, has carried out his desire, and little Miss Williams, in handing the gifts to her mother (who, as treasurer, was entitled to one of the tokens). Mr. Edwin Lewis (the president), Mr. W. Bryn Davies (vice- president). and Mr. j. Griffith Jones (secretary), recited the following ftppro- -pi-ito verses:- Pamp o fedals i'r swyddogion Sydd ar long y Cymrodorion. Mr. Edwin Lewis- Hon i'r capten dewr a'r llywyùd, Sy'n ei thywys ar bob tywydd. Mr. W. Bryn Davies- Pan fo'r capten dewr yn wael, Mae is-gapten cryf i'w gael. Mrs. J. Williams— Benyw sydd yn cadw'r pwrs, Fel y dylai fod, wrth gwrs. Mr. G. R. Jones- 'R ysgrifennydd gaiff y trwbwl, Mae e'n gweithio mwy na'r cwbwl. Mr. D. J. Martin- Er nad yw eleni'n swyddog, Ni wneir heb y pilot selog. II She did her part excellently, and was Warmly applauded. Mrs. Williams was heartily thanked on the proposition of Ir. D. Arthen Evans, seconded by the Rev. Howell Davies. B.Sc.. both gentlemen bearing tribute to the memory of the late, Mr. Williams, and to the great work which he had ren- dered in fostering the Welsh language in the town. 1 THE DRAMA. In the striking progress in the per- formance of Welsh drama in recent years, the Barry Cymrodorion have well pllayed their part, this being the second occasion in succeeding years upon which they have given in their annual gathering the interpretation of pieces written by local gentlemen filled with ardent Welsh spirit. "Oolli ac Ennill" is a four-act drama, by Mr. W. Bryn Davies, de- picting a phiase of West Glamorgan industrial and religious life in tJhe year 1895. The pielce met with a striking rooeption, and in acknowledg- ing the appreciation of the audience at the closo the author paid tribut.e to r the Welsh collier, remarking that it was he who had made Wales the greiat power it was to-day. This is the spirit which underlies the work, and Mr. Davies, using his wide experience of the indomitable spirit of the collier, has served to provide the Cymrodorion with a work of which it might justly bo proud. This is the story of the work, full of absorbingly interesting situations. Morgan Dafydd and Nannws, his wife —the former a worthy pillar of reli- gious life, and the latter a true help- meet—have a son Ifan, who is a mechanical genius. He figures promin- ently in saving the life of the daughter of the manager of the ironworks, and the reward for his bravery is that, he is apprenticed in the iron foundry, and makes rapid progross-iii his craft. But he takes up the cause of the miser- ably paid ironworkers by writing to the vernacular Press. He leads a de- putation of ironworkers before the managing director, and, although, cajoled and bribed, he refuses to resist the cause of the workmen, and is, in consequence. dismissed from the foundry, and is also told that he must give up all hopes of mlarrying the manager's daughter. Ruth. Morgan and Na.miws are also evicted from their oili home, which is the property of the ironworks company: The workmen, though boasting bravely of their deter- minatioai to strike, desert their young leader, and things look very dark for I fain, who becomes a collier. In these unpropitious circumstances for the young genius, a brother of Nannws, who had become a voluntary exile from Wales, and infected with the gold fever in California, returns a wealthy niian, and promises to do all in his power to enable Ifan to realise his ambition. Ifan hias not yet reached home from the colliery, but just as his joyous parents are burning to welcome him home with the great news of his uncle's return, tidings are brought of a disaster in the coal' pit, and it is found that Ifan and three others have been hopelessly entomfbed in the flooded coal mine. A dream of the .s daughter leads to efforts being made to pump the water out of the pit, and after heroic efforts the rescuers in a few dtays approach nearer and neiarer to the heading where the miners are entombed. Suddenly faint knockings are heard from the heading, and after superhuman efforts the en- tombed are rescued. Ifan is restored to his parents and Ruth, aaid is in a. position to redeem his promise to do a good day's work for the workers of Wales, and to make Wales a brighter and better home for its people. The various characters were inter- preted with real dramatic ability, and the performance was a distinct success.. The character role, all of whom did: their parts well, were:—Morgan Dafydd (Mr. D. J. Martin), Nannws, his wife (Miss Mary Jenkins), Ifan (Mr. Jack Gw-n). Ruth. (Miss Myfawwy Davies), Mr. Mordecai. the ironworks manager (Mr. James Wil- liams), Mr. Gronow, an American (I-fr. Tom John), Rev. Orwig Parry; (Rev. Gjirn Adams), Shanco Ty With and T\\jm o'r Gors (Mr. Ben Mathias)> David Thomas, the manager of the pit (Mr. D. Hamer), and Dr. Peters (Mr. Evan Morris). The stage manager was Mr. J. Lloyd Jones. A solo was rendered by Mr. P. T. Phillips, Mr. John M. Lloyd being the accompanist, and the interesting event concluded with the singing of the Welsh national antliom. Mr. J. Griffith Jones, tihe secretary, efficiently carried out the entire arrangements. DRAMA PERFORMED TO THE I SOLDIERS. On Tuesday evening last, at St. Mary's Hall, Barry Docks, the Welsh drama, Colli ac Ennill," by Mr. W. Bryn Davies, was performed to a large attendance of soldiers, which included about thirty wounded from the Hos- pital in Dock View-road. The per- formance found a very appreciative audience, the soldiers joining heartily in the choruises. Mr. Edwin Lewis presided, and welcomed the men on be- half of the Cymrodorion Society. Mr. Evan Walters gave a well-rendered violin solo; and Miss Aeronwen Evans played Welsh airs on the pia.no. Miss Gwenllian Davies was the accom- panist. Refreshments were provided for the soldiers. WITH THE 12TH WELSH AT BARRY. True to the ancient traditions of the Welsh Regiments, St. David's Day was an occasion of patriotic interest in connection with the 12th Welsh at Barry. The day was observed as a holiday, and drills and training were suspended. All ranks sported the leek and national flag in their caps and tunic's. Eacrly in the morning there were sports at the ButtriHs, the prizes being given by the commanding offi- cer, Colonel Ommanney. who, with Major R. W. Picton EN- iis and the other commissioned officers, was pre- sent and took an active- interest in the I proceedings. The Cross-country Race was won by Sergeant Griffith^ of the B. Company, Corporal EW141S. A. Company, being- second, and Lance-corporal McManus third. The Oiffcers' 100 Yards Race was won by Second-Lieutenant Warren, Lieut. Martin and Lieut. De'Pass tie* ing for second place. The winners of the Relay Race ware the B. Company, the A.'s being second. In the Tug-of-War. the B.'s again beat the A.'s in the final by two pulls to one. The Officers pulled the Sergeants over very early, and won by two pulls to nil. At diiwier, ca-wl and St. David's paidding figured in the menu. In the afternoon a Rugby match was played, the Officers defoot.ing the Sergeants by 13 points to 3. In the evening the Sergeants gave a grand concert in their mess, at which some noted local artistes gave their services. The officers were invited guests, one of the sergeants, the junior sergeant, who was not of Welsh nationality, with flavoured recolleic- tions of the battle of Agincourt. being blooded by eating the raw leek, this incident adding much to the hilarity of the occasion. Officers and men had a thoroughly enjoyable day. I GWYL CENEDLAETHOL I EGLWYSIG. The annual services in celebration of OwvI Dewi Sant were held on Sun- day last at. St. John's Welsh Church, Court-road, Barry Docks, the special preacher being the Rev. T. Jones, Mer- thyr Dyfan, who delivered able and appropriate sermons in the afternoon and evening. The services were of a hearty description, and suitable hymns were sung. Irs. J. R. Llewellyn pre- sided at the organ.
BARRY ISLAND MILITARY HOSPITAL
BARRY ISLAND MILITARY HOSPITAL. The St. John Ambulance Detaining Hospital, British Red Cross Society, at Barrv Island, has been registered as a military hospital. Since August 2,050 out-patients and 320 in-patients have been treated. A Convalescent Home, lent rent free by Mr. Williams, an uncle of Mrs. Harris, of Barry Island Post Office, is a great boon to the Shropshire Regi- ments. Mrs. Kent, wife of Lieut. Curgen Kent, the medical officer of the troops, has undertaken charge of a ward for measles in Romilly-road Schools, and will be assisted if necessary by mem- bers of the St. John Ambulance Brigade. Since August, the hospital has been entirely supported by the payments made by members of the Brigade, with subscriptions and gifts in kind from residents of the district. The financial success of the hospital Inns been largely due to the Wesleyans, who have placed tihe whole of their buildings, free or charge, at the disposal of the commit- jtee; and to the pilots of the port, who have generously contributed regularly to the upkeep of the Hospital. Barry residents wishing to pay a visit to the hospital are invited to do i sü between three and five o'clock any afternoon. Gifts of money, fruit, cakes, cigarettes, etc.. are always rnossfc acceptable. The Committee begs to acknowledge the following subscriptions received during the past few days:—Barry D?ck Pilots. ? Barrv Pilots. ?5; Mr. T. B. T?rdofT. ?1: Miss C. Master- 111;11]. 10; They also wish to thank Mr. W. H. Hooper. High-street, for col- lecting money for the installation of the telephone,, which was very much needed.
