LOCAL PLACES OF PUBLIC AMUSEMENT. I 1THEATRE ROYAL. BARRY. I f A distinct success was witnessed at the Theatre Royal, Barry, this week, when "Asthore," a picture version of ¡ the well-known song, was shown, and the song was sung during the screen- ing of the picture by Air. D. Hopkins. Part seven of the favourite serial, "The Scarlet Runner," featuring "The Red Whiskered Man," and part five of "The History of the Great War," showing-its effect on France, were two very interesting items. Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew created con- siderable laughter amongst the audi- ence in their comedy production, I "Her Perfect Husband." This evening (Thursday) and dur- ing the remaining evenings of the week the big picture will be "Time and Tide Wait for no Man," a breezy drama of a lovable young man cursed by a weakness for unpunctuality, and the clever plan by which he was cured. "Diamonds are Trumps," is the name of a clever and original three-part de- tective drama, while a further series of Bruce Bairnsfather's cartoons, and Pathe's Animated Gazette and latest war pictures will be included. On the first three evenings of next week, a fine social drama entitled The World and the Woman," fea- turing Clara Williams, will be pre- sented. The story is of a girl who was nobody's child," and of the unkindness shown her. Part 4 of I the History of the War, showing Great Britain during the early days of the war will be also screened, sup- ported by other dramas and comedies. ROM ILLY HALL, BARRY. I Undoubtedly the remarkable pic- j ture, "The Quest of Life," which was shown at the Romilly Hall, Barry, the beginning of this week, is one of the greatest successes yet launched in "filmland." It was remarkable for the wonderful dancing scenes it contained, for the marvellous ease and skill which the star caste of artistes acquitted I themselves, and for the beautiful an d elaborate way in which the story had been moulded into a production of sur- passing merit. "The Apache Dance" by Maurice and Florence Walton, was well worth seeing. Another grand film will be pre- sented this evening (Thursday), and II during the concluding evenings of this week. The public will give a fond welcome to 'Maciste, the talented actor, who will be seen as "An Alpine Soldier." Naturally the story is based on the war, and Maciste, who per- forms wonderful feats of strength and endurance, is certain to gain a further reputation as a remarkably fine actor. The story begins in Austria, but changes over to Italy. During the first three evenings of next week, the clever picture, "The House of the Golden Windows," will be shown. Nothing is lacking in charm in this superb production, for the plot of the story has been blended together so well as to make it impos- sible to criticise it other than in a favourable manner. Cleo Ridgley, the popular performer, will be seen to advantage in this film, and it should not be missed. The programme will be its usual length, and will consist of other excellent films of quality and interest.

The Sunderland steamer Sten left Barry on Wednesday night, the 16th instant, coal-laden for France. She ¡ had not been out of port eighteen hours before she was torpedoed down channel by the German submarine U 35, and sunk within two minutes, nine I men, including the master, Captain Dawson, of Sunderland, being miss- ing. The remaining eleven were res- cued by a trawler and some fishing boats, and landed at St. Ives and else- w here. Two young seamen amongst the missing belonged to Barry, George Gill (24), eldest son of Dock-constable and Mrs. C. Gill, Church House, Main-street, Cadoxton, whose ivifei and child live at 3, Ouarella-street, Cad oxton and Evan Owens (19), youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. John Owen, 62, Station-street, Barry Docks. Gill had been previously torpedoed in April of this year, and was one of those rescued from the dynamite-laden steamer Allan Chine, which blew up in port at Baltimore. U.S.A., four years ago. and about fifty persons j perished and immer damage was done. The dynamite was intended for the Panama Canal. He was edu- i cated at Cadoxton Council School, and was for years a member and chorister of St. Aidan's Church, Cadoxton. Young Owens was a former pupil of Holton-road Council School, Barry Docks, and has two brothers serving in France, one brother in the Royal Navy, and his eldest brother. Captain John Owens, late master of the Car- diff steamer Llandrindod, is interned in Germany. Amongst the rescued members of the crew are Mr. Alec Taylor, of 56, 1 Tinker Morel-street, Barry Docks, the second officer; W. C. Hicks, of Goodwick, Pern.; and Bert Daniels (20), son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniels, of 6. Coigne-terrace, Barry Docks. The latter was the only one saved out of eight members of the crew who were At watch below in the forward part of the ship when she was struck, and he was blown up fully 50 feet into the air, and experienced a miraculous escape, being picked up from the "sea in a fishing boat as he floated about on a piece of wreckage.

Mr. Hughes applied that the case be adjourned for a week after the hearing of formal evidence of arrest. Police-sergeant David Phillips said he arrested the accused at Cadoxton the previous night, and took him to the Police Station, where he charged him on a warrant with that" between the 29th of May and the 29th June, 1917, did feloniously carry away 75 railway season tickets, to the value of 5/ On been cautioned, Waters replied "I re- serve my defence."

Arthur Frederick Ramson. was charged with being an absentee from the Army. Police-constable James Higgins ar- rested defendent at Dinas Powis the previous evening. Mr. Alfred Jackson, solicitor, for the defence said there was really no case against Ramson. He was in the Army Service Corps. Discharged last January, he was called up again in August, but through Mr J. Herbert Corv his calling-up was cancelled. It seemed that the notice had been sent irrespective of this, but as defendent had changed his address from Cardiff to Dinas Powis, he knew nothing of it. Mr. Jackson asked for a week's ad- journment in order to investigate the matter. The case was adjourned for a week, defendent being allowed bail in £ 5. MONDAY. I Before Mr. J. Lowdon, Mr. D. W.

BARRY COAL DISTRIBUTION COMMITTEE
BARRY COAL DISTRIBUTION COMMITTEE. REVISION OF THE PRICE OF, COAL. A joint meeting of the Barry Coal Distribution Committee of the local Coal Merchants was held in the Coun- cil Chamber on Thursday evening last. There was a good attendance. Councillor W. Beck presided. The business was to further con- sider the question of the retail prices of coal in Barrv. 'I'lie clit i rn-i?l The chairman explained that there was dissatisfaction as to the prices, more particularly as to cost of coal at the various depots being 1/10, and the price for the cart Id. extra. Mr. J. M. Cobbledick said there was exactly the same work in selling } coal from the depot as from the cart; in fact, rather more, because storing accommodation had to be provided, and the coal weighed up, in the major- ity of cases to half-hundredweights. The merchants thought that consider- ing the work, the profit at the vard was too little. Mr. W J. Rees asked why forms had not been sent to those men who sold coal by the ton. It was not fair that they were called upon to observe the same conditions as the merchants. The Chairman We are keeping our eyes on them in the interests of the merchants. One of the merchants said that one colliery company stated that they could not supply him, but he found five trucks on the sidings for people who were selling coal, but were not registered as merchants. The C hairman Our object is to get as much coal as possible. If we can by any means get coal to the town it will be to our advantage, and to the advantage of the people generally. That is the object of the weekly re- turns which Mr. Rees spoke of, which should be received every Monday, as the Coal Controller desired the return of the whole before Wednesday in each week. It was agreed to accept the list of prices as previously arranged with the exception that the retail price at the yard be 2/0-id. per cwt.
FACTS FOR THE FAIR SEX
FACTS FOR THE FAIR SEX. All women realise that they can scarely expect to escape, from time to time, suffering which men are not call- ed upon to endure. But not all women know-though the fact might easily suggest itself—what is really behind all these miseries is something wrong with the blood. Most often, especially when a girl is entering womanhood the one cause of pain, low spirits, backaches, and slow development is anaemia. This miserable condition of health—too little blood, or blood that is thin and poor-is sometimes the cause of de- cline, leading to consumption, at this age. In full womanhood other miseries come to some women, due again to a scarcity of good blood; and when' middle age approaches, the penalty which has to be paid is the punish- ment which Nature exacts for neglect- ing the blood. Every women, at the first sign of ill-health, should obtain Dr. Williams' pink pills for pale people, for this medicine has made a great reputation by the suffering which it has spared women. Dr. Williams' pink pills build up the blood and so restore health; that is why it is important to avoid substitutes. A very useful Free Book can be had by sending a post card to the Hints Dept., 46, Holborn Viaduct, London, E.C.I, asking for "Plain Talks to Women."
