Facts dud "My husband talks in his sleep." "Can't you do anything to break him of the habit?" wouldn't break him of it for the world!" She: "A clock is different from a man." He: "In what respect?" She: "When it strikes it keeps on working." The pessimist was suffering from rheu- matism. Every bone in my body aches," he complained. "You ought to be glad you are not a herring," said the optimist. Fred is horrid! When we were out to-night a 'little fly flew right into my mouth, and I asked him of what that was a sign." "What did he say it meant?" "That I should keep my mouth shut." "I have great pleasure in announcing, gentlemen," said the Professor to his class of students, "that to-day I have been appointed honorary physician to his Majesty." With one accord the students shouted:—"God save the King!" "Doctor Quic is quite wealthy, isn't he? Did he make all his money from his practice?" "Not all of it! He's the principal owner of a very large oil wely, in America." "Ah, I see; he makes money from the sick and the well, toe!" A British officer inspecting sentries guarding the line in Manders came across a raw-looking yeoman. "What are you here for?" he asked. "To report any- thing unusual, sir." "What would you call unusual?" "I dunno exactly, sir." What would you do if you saw five battle- ships steaming across the field "Sign the pledge, sir." She (tenderly): "When did you first know you loved me ?" He: When I be- gan to get mad when people said you were brainless and unattractive." Officer (to man arrested as a spy): "You say you don't know anything 'about the war?" Suspect: "Honest, I couldn't know less about it if I were a. war expert." A cruiser torpedoed in the bows made her way into harbour, with her water-tight doors opening up as she went. The bos'n, looking down the hatch and realising that all below was blown away, exclaimed in tragic tones: All me stores is gone." Then he ran aft to his cabin, and returned faden with books and papers, which he hurled down the hatch, adding with a sigh of relief: And all me accounts, too!"
From the Papers
From the Papers. Something is happening in the Church of England. The ordeal. of the war has Dot been in vain; this is her steadfast resolve. If the signs are truly read a humbler and regenerated Church is going to arise. In October and November next from Land's End to Berwick-on-Tweed a call is to be given to the nation. But before she sets out to teach the Church has realised that she must go to school herself. Dur- ing the coming months she is to take herself to task and seek to fit herself for giving the great call to the nation. Every c'ity, tcwn and village is to be visited. Special messengers will go forth to proclaim" The Church—the Country— that is to be." This is the programme of the Archbishops' National Mission of Repentance and Hope. Lord St. Davids, whose engagement to Miss Eawdon Hastings is announced, was the tallest member of the House of Com- mons when he sat for Pembrokeshire, of which county he is now lord lieutenant. He was cnce a candidate for the Liberail representation of Cardiganshire, where his wife. Mrs. Wynford Philipps, was well known as a political speaker. His son, the Hon. Roland Pliitlipps, who was re- cently wounded in France, has so far re- covered as to return to active duty and is once more "in the trenches." Miss Betty Rawdon-Hastings is the second daughter of Lady Maud Rawdon-Hastings and the late Hon. Paulyn Rawdon-Hastings, of The Manor House, Ashby-de-la-Zouch. It is stated in London last week on authority that admits of no question that the Central! Control Board is issuing all order which will bring the whole of Wales and Monmouthshire wlithin the scope of the drink restrictions. This is the result of the report presented by the Board's ex- perts who recently visited the counties of Wales. The first account rendered by thV-Com- missioners appointed under the Welsh Church Act, 1914. has been issued. It covers the period from September 24th, 1914, to December 51st, 1915. Owing to the postponement of the date of disestab- lishment the vesting of property in the Commissioners did not come into opera- tion during the period of the account, which is, therefore merely a record of cash transactions in respect or salaries and other preliminary expenses sanctioned by the Treasury as neoesary for carrying the Act into effect. In order to meet the expenses of the Commission prior to the date of disestablishment temporary advances have been made from time to time out of the Civil Contingencies Fund. Tlie advances made within the period of the account were subject to the payment of interest at the rate of four per cent. The advances sa made amounted to £ 5,500. On the expenditure side salaries totalled £3,487 14s. 5d., the other chief item being L564 9s. lid., for office accom- modation. No details are given of salaries, and a balance of over PI,OW in hand is shown. Sir Edward Stafford Howard died at his London residence in Lowndes-square on Saturday, after a long illness. Born in 1851, he was the second son of Mr. Henry Howard, of Greystoke Castle. Cumberland. and represented in Parliament, as a Liberal Fast Cumberland from 1876 to lu85 In Mr Gladstone's Government of 1886 Sir Stafford was; for a. short time under secre- tary for India. Later he was appointed a commissioner of his Majesty's Woods, Forests, and Land Revenues, and had been an Ecclesiastical Commissioner since 1914. Sir Stafford Howard, who was made a C.B. in 1900 and creat a K.C.B. in 1909, was twice married, first in 18io to Lady Rachel Campbell, daughter of the second Earl Cawdor, who died in 1906, and secondly in 1911. to Chtlierine. only daughter of Sir Alcernon Co well-Stepney. The Government Committee on the treat- ment of British prisoners of war has been issued and deals with the typhus epidemic at Wittenberg Camp last year. Based on statements by repatriated prisoners, it gives illustrations of the appalling condition of the camp, the brutality and callousness of the Germans, and the heroic devotion of the British medical officers and their orderlies. The Board of Agriculture report for March states that with regard to agricul-j t tura} conditions in England and Wales the very wet and stormy weather caused great delay in all operations. Early sown winter wheat generally had withstood the adverse conditions, but wheat on heavy land had suffered a good deal, whilst that sown late it, autumn was also not satisfactory. The total area under wheat appeared to be about seven or eight per cent. less than ..St year. Winter oats and beans were ostly healthy, although backward. Pre- aticn or tile land for the spring crops is almost at a standstill, but seeds were generally strong and vigorous. There had ■oen a. good fall of lambs, although owing a tne bad weather conditions, losses had probably been rather over average. Labour every where was deficient. and farmers had considerable arrears to make up this spring. In one or two very favoured districts only i'.av-e a few early potatoes been planted. Speaking Oast week Father Vaughan stated that the Earl of Port- • rlington had recorded that a I d'stingu:shed officer of the Irish Guards, a matter-of-fact sort of man, was busiily engaged one evening at the base in Flanders, and was not too pleased to be interrupted when there suddenly came a knock at the door and a nun appeared. he told him that she had a message that until the nations sank on their knees and pf ead0d with God for mery there would certainly be no end to the war. Next day the officer went to the convent to ask the Reverend Mother not to send nuns out "t nght when lie was busy. The Reverend Mother r-epl-ed that no nuns went out at mprht, and invited him to pick out the Particular nun. He failed to do so, but ,ns he was rising he saw a portrait and pxclaimed, "That is the lady." The Rev- erend Mother replied: "VerI, General, she d'pind. She wafc onw the Reverend Mother of trrs convent." The officer went satisfied that he had received a message.

LLANBADARN. Sewing Class.-A tea and social were given in connection with the Sewing Class on Wednesday of 'last week at Soar Independent Chape lin aid of funds for the provision of comforts for Llanbadarn boys at the front. The two churches of Soar (Ind) and Saron (C.M.) have combined efforts and already sent off thitry-eight par eels of stockings, belts, etc, as well as chocolate and other ilnxuries. The secretaries are Mrs. Edwards, Gwynfa, and Miss Mary Ann Williams and Mrs Plidip and Mrs P.C. Richards are the presidents. The Nantcraerio family have co-operated with the Class and given valu- able assistance in money and work. At the tea and social which were given last, week, given at Soar in turn with Saron, the Misses Morgan, Nantcaerio, and the Rev. Griffith Parry presiding, a programme of singing and recitations was gone through, and the sum of L7 7s. was real- ised in aid cJ the funds. Each parcel is 'accompanied by a letter by the Rev Griffith Parry written on behalf bf the Committee. A large number of appreci- ative letters have been received from the boys at the fronts in acknowledgment of the kindness of the Sewing Class. The following letter from Mr T. J. Keane may be taken as representative of numerous other letters. "Dear Mr Parry,-I do not know how to express my gratitude for the parcel of good things which has reached me and for the kind message con- tained in your note. Believe me I feel trufy grateful and shall be glad if you will kindly convey to the Committee my most hearty thanks for their useful gifts. Un- fortunately we are now (February) exper- iencing exceptionally severe weather. Heavy snow lies everywhere and the land has a peaceful aspect, garbed in its mantile of white. It is when conditions are at their worst that we appreciate the remem- brances fnm the old village. The know- ledge that we are not forgotten in the prayers and thoughts of friends so far away is a source cf great comfort. Though the war is causing such endless misery, I Ii firmly believe that when the struggle is over Britain will emerge purer and more true as a result of the suffering tlie nation has endured. The men from the trenches true as a result of the suffering the nation has endured. The men from the trenches I will come back humbler, more gentle, and more easily pleased. We shall know bet- I ter how to value the iove of mothers, wives, and sisters and we shall appreciate our homes and their associations, religious and social, to a far greater extent.. I think the women of our empire are bear- in the heavier burden of the war. For us there is continual excitement and the woveltv of life in strange conditions whilst at home the women watch and wait for they know not what. Theirs is by far the greater anxiety. I am sure the manhood of Britain will show in a marked manner their appreciation. I cannot conclude, Mr Parry, without again expressing my warmest gratitude to you personally as well as to all kind friends who have helped in providing; fthe paircells. Very many thanks too for your good wishes which are heartily reciprocated." Letters have 'also been received from B. Pateman, David J. Pugh (whose death occurred last week), Morgan Jones, W. Lloyd. E. R. Jones, J. Thomas, Evan Lloyd, P. H. Davies, and others.

Ocath.Tlie death of JIr. Georgie Rees (second son of Mr. Thomas Rees, cattle dealer, etc., Adpar), took place somewhat suddenly on Wednesday of last week, at the age of twenty-nine. He was appar- ently in the best of health on Stindav week, but having had a serious illness some years ago from which he had not quite recovered, he was at times suffering from heart affection, and his death, though sudden, was not altogether unexpected. He leaves a widow and one child. Mr. Thomas James, retired shopkeeper, Pleasant View, Cape] Evan, was deceased's father-in-law. Theft at Sanatc.rium.-A case of theft of a pitiful character came before Dr. D. G. IJoyd and Thomas Davies, Esq., Cil- wenydd Fawr, at the Magistrates Room, on Saturday, a young blacksmith of eighteen, from Carnarvon fa recent patient at Alltymynydd Sanatorium. Llanybyther, whose time there had expired)" was charged with Laving stolen a pair of trousers value 18s. and a pair of shoes vauje 6s., belonging, to fellow-patients. David Davies, 2, Ferry-road, Lougher tin- plate worker. a patient at Lie Sanatorium, said he missed a pair of trousers from tli-e drying room on April 1st. The defendant was at the Sanatorium. on the 29th, suffer- ing from tuberculosis, and left on the 31st Mfirch.—Douglas Grant, a travelling draper, said he lost a pair of Oxford shoes from the drying room on the 30th March. P.C. John Evans, Llanybyther. said he apprehended defendant at Carnarvon (where the stolen propeity was handed over to him by the police) who expressed deep sorrow—The Bench took a lenient vieii- s iid bound defendant over for six months. Tritu-nal.-Tlie Appeal Tribunal for Cardiganshire met at Newcastle Emlyn on Wednesday of last week, Mr John Jones, Cwmere, presiding. The Military Repre- sentative (Major J. R. Williams) appealed against the decision of the Cardigan 1 ribunal granting an assistant grocer conditional exemption. The Rev Dr Moelwyn Hughes appeared for the parents. who argued that they eoiUld not carry on the business without the sou. Major Williams objected to Dr Hughes appear- ing. Dr Hughes appealed for permission to make a statement, and leave was even- tually granted him. Finally the appea;l of the Military Representative was allowed. In the case of a cowman, the locaU tribunal had granted conditional ex- emption, but the Military Representative appealed on the ground that it was not a certified occupation and that there were farms in the district with fewer hands. The appeal was allowed. i
Appeals Before Montgomery Tribunal
Appeals Before Mont- gomery Tribunal. NEARLY ALL DISMISSED. Montgomeryshire Appetal Tribunal met at Newtown on Wednesday of tiast week. Thirty-six appeals were heard. Extension of time was granted in three cases, all the other appeals being dismissed. Mr. W. P. Owen, Aberystwyth, repre- sented Ithel Davies, Blaentafolog. Aber- angAl, in an appeal against the refusal of his application by Maohynlleth rurat tribunal. He asked for absolute exemp- tion on conscientious grounds. Mr. Owen said he also appealed on the ground that he was a shepherd, but the tribunal re- fused leave to alter the grounds of appeal. Appellant said he could not accept the local tribunal's decision, being against militarism in every form. He could not take the military oath. He was willing to do his utmost for the welfare of the country, and believed he was doing so as a shepherd.—Tlie Chairman; The decision of the tribunal is that you be put in the non-combatant service.—The tribunal re- fused leave to appeal further. WiKiam Jones, Waen, LIanbrynmair; appealed against the refusal of his appli- cation by Machynlleth rural tribunal. The grounds of appeal were that two brothers had joined the army, and that his youngest brother could not do the work of the farm at home by himself. If appellant had to go, his mother would have to leave the home 'she had occupied for twenty-six years. Some years ago he came from South Wales to help on the farm at financial sacrifice. He had mar- :ded since (attestation. The (farm iiias about eighty acres and two men were always kept on it.—The appeal was dis- allowed. William Lewis. Rhiwfelen, Penegoes, whose son, Richard William Lewis, had been refused exemption, appealed on the ground that he was the only man in charge of an engine and thrashing machine on which the farmers of the district de- pended for thrashing and sawing. He was also his bailiff. Appellant said the farm was 300 acres, over 200 endlosed, and the rent was L87. The man who had charge of the machine had left him, so that he had to entrust the engine to the son's care. Another son engaged on the farm had been rejected for military service on medical ga'oundte. The waggoner was leaving in May.—The appeal was refused. Richard Lewis Owen, mason, Abercegir, asked for exemption on the ground that he was engaged on estate work for Lord Herbert Vane-Tempest, Major Bonsall (Gailltyllan), and Messrs. Howell and Bonsall, and that he had a sister wholly dependent on him.—The appeal was re- fused. George Stanley Hughes, Granrafon, Oommins Cbeh, described as a slaughterer, farm bailiff, and rural postman, was ap- pealed for by his father, who said his son was uidrtfpensablK MnchynEeth rural tribunal had refused the application on the ground that an older man could be em- ployed.—The appeal was refused. Samuel Lewis Owen, boot dealer, Mach- ynlleth. asked for total exemption for his sole employee David Owen Pugh, on the ground that he was indispensable. Ap- pellant said that since the local tribunal he had received a 'letter from the Board of Trade saying that workmen engaged in the making and repairing of clogs had been placed on the reserved list. Dr. A. O. Davies had certified the man unfit for military service and the Wrexham military board had found him unfit for active ser- vice.—The appeal was refused. Another appeal from Machyn'leth urban tribunal was lodged by David Derwen Jones, master tailor and cutter, 51, Maen- gwyn-street. The grounds were that since the local tribunal he had been examined by Dr. A. O. Davies and Dr. Ibbotson, and both pronounced him unfit for ser- vice. If he was called up his business would be ruined. His mother and youngest sister were dependent on him. The appeal was refused. Mrs. Morgan, Melinbyrhedyn, appealed in respect of her only son. Mr. Woosnam, for nlfpellant, said the boy was a wag- gener employed by Humphrey Jones. Ty- ddynplas, and on his application was given exemption till March 25th when Jones Vias giving up the farm. The young man had since been engaged by Mr. Jones, Boilguog, as waggoner.-Wbe appeal was refused. Abiah Butler, Cemmaes Mill, miller, was appealed for by his mother, on the ground that he was in sole charge of the mill and the farm adjoining. Machynlleth Turall tribunal had refused, saying that the boy could not be sufficiently efficient to justify his being called indispensable.—The appeal was refused. Mr. Woosnam appeared for Richard Henry Ingram, C'eniarth. Uwchygarreg, who appealed against Machynlleth rural tribunal's refusal on the ground that through misapprehension he had left the local tribunal before his case was heard. He was a waggoner with Thomas Rees, Ceniarth, who did not attend owing to a fair at Machynlleth. The foc-al tribunal considered that the reason given on the form of appeal was only an excuse.—The appeal was refused. The appeal of Frederick Llewelyn Lloyd, employed as waggoner by his brother oa Plas Pennant Farm, Llanbrynmair, was refused. The first case of a revision of the local tribunal's decision was the case in which Mr. A. S. Cooke, auctioneer, Xewtown, appealed on behalf of his son. Norman, described as salesman and manager. The grounds of appeal were that the appellant was sole partner in the firm of Messrs. Cooke Bros, and Roberts, wh0 conducted an extensive auctioneering business in Newtown, Aberystwyth, an(] Lfanidloes. Over 20,000 sheep were sold at their 'annual sales and they were the proprietors of the largest wool sale in Wales They were agents for 2,000 acres of nd, and for large timber estates, and joint owners of the Mid-Wales Horse Repository. The man applied for had only passed for home service. He was ia timber expert and expected to sell some of the largest timber faUs in Wales. He had been instrumental in establishing the wool sales, which re- quired much technical knowledge. Ap- pellant's younger son was serving since the outbreak of war. He had ilost five clerks and three porters, the remaining clerk being called up in the next group. The whole business was an ad- junct to agriculture, and lie should be treated on the same basis as a farmer. Since the meeting of the 'local tribunal his son had sold 100 acres of timber, which was required by several of the largest collieries engaged on Govern- ment work. Mr Cooke added that the wool safe was entirely in the hnnds of Mr. Norman Cooke's liamTs. About 200 farmers sent wool and about 100,000 fleeces were sold last year. The sale was conducted at the end of July. His younger son had been incapacitated by service, and would not lie of very great service for many years. He had made every effort to secure a man to take the place of the son now npnealed for, but failed to get anyone with kJ\Jiedgi?< nf timber.—The tribunal allowed appelfanit till September 1st to cover the wool sale. Dnvid Humphreys, blacksmith, engaged l v his uncle. Fdward Martin, Melinbyr- hedyn, appealed against the decision of Madhvnlleth rural tribunal. The appeal was refused.
NEW QUAY. Air Service.—M)\ S. R. Evans, Morfagwvn, who was one of the first to attest under the Derby scheme, has been admitted as a, member of the Royal Naval Air Service and is now in training at Sheerness.

Aberayron Hospital. MISGIVINGS SET AT REST. A meeting of the Aberayron Red Cross Hospital Executive Committee was held at the Town Hall on Friday when there were present Mrs. Price Lewes, Miss i Price Lewes, Tyglyn Aeron; Mrs Davies, .Feathers Hotel, Mrs. D. Pennant James, I Mrs. Edward Williams. Alderman J. M. Howell. Dr. D. M. Davies, fr. C. Denham Evans, Councillor E Lima Jones, Mr. Munro Hughes, and Mr. B. C. Jones, treasurer. Mr. Munro Hughes was voted to the chair. Miss Lewes reported that she had in hand JB114 3s. which she had col- lected, as well a.s the county grant of C45. It was reported that the collectors at Aber- ayron had obtained £ 52 16s. bd., but that the work was only just begun. Miss Lewes also reported that the parish of Llan- aeron would provide a bed and that Mydroilyn, in the upper part of the parish, would do likewise. Dihewid hoped to suc- ceed in doing the same. Ciliau was col- lecting. Cilcennin had held a meeting and had appointed collectors. She had no official news from Ystrad: but she under- stood that the work would be done. Tre- vilan was organising a bazaar. New Quay would probably maintain three beds. Llan- santffread was holding meetings, but no action was yet taken. Llanarth was col- lecting. Talgarreg had been active, having sent in money, and would send in more? Llanbadarn Trefeglwys would probably keep a bed. Llanina. and Cydplwyf were energetic and Llandysiliogogo was doing good work. Miss Lewis believed that aU the parishes would do well and that the proJ moters could look on hopefully. The build- ing was now nearly ready and might expect to be called upon to receive patients at an early date.—Mr. John M. Howell said he wished to put some questions to Miss Lewes with the view of clearing up wrong impres- sions. There was an idea abroad that the Red Cross Society was a kind of close cor- poration where people of a certain aris- tocratic status transacted the main business in camera and from where they issued orders to inferior mortals to tind the money for them to spend. He would therefore like to know if the fund now being collected would be devoted only for the maintenance of the loca] hospital ? How were payments to be authorised? How were the cheques to be sign d' Would monthly audited accounts be presented? Miss Lewes, in her reply, said the fund now being collected was a separate fund and was exclusively for the local hospital. Mr. B. C. Jones was the treasurer. All cheques would be drawn by him and signed bv him, and countersigned by herself. The monthly accounts and vouchers and audited balance sheets would be issued monthly and would be for the inspection of all sub- scribers. No auditor had been appointed, and that had better be done that dav.— Councillor E. Lima Jon-l-s asked, in 'the event of patients not being brought in at all, what would become of the money collected ?-iNIrs. Price Lewes answered that it would be re- turned to each subscriber, of course. Mr. How-ell asked, in case the hospital was used for six months only, or if half the beds only or any other larger or smaller proportion of the beds were used, would the money unused be dealt with likewise ? —Miss Lewes answered that the subscriber8 would be called together, and they would have to decide what to do with any money unused. The money would certainly not be sent to the general R?d Cross fund without the permission of the subscribers. —Mr. Howell said the answers would clear away many misapprehensions. He would not have asked the questions to satisfy any doubts of his own, for he had none. He had been willing to give his small subscription as he gave a subscription to a missionary society, to the Prince of Wales fund, or to the Y.M.C.A.. believing that the people in charge knew how to spend the money and to spend it well. There were other people, however, differently constituted and Miss Lewes's answers would put all misgivings at rest.—Mr. Davies, manager of the L. and P. Bank, was appointed auditor.—Tt was agreed to call a meeting of the Execu- tive Committee at stated intervals.
ABERAYRON. Naval Visit.—Oil Thursday General Truscott. Colonel Butler, and Colonel Caldron. R.N., visited Aberayron to inspect coast, defences.

He went to a lodging house 'at Cardigan in Jan- uary kept by Gwen Morgan. She used to keep a registered lodging house but gave that up and took in lodgers.
