There was a similarity of xperien('e between the three younor TOen of Durah (spoken of in the book of ^aniel), and the Belgians of to-dav. 'ho so three men had refused to wor- ship the image placed before them, and the Belgians had refused to bow to the iniage of brass and iron set up on the Plains of Europe. We were out to slay that image for ever. (Applause.) ° Rev..J.

Their stand at Liege £ d astounded the world. They were fighting. for their hearths and home gainst the tyranny of the European Ully an(j braggart.

Mander, A. P. Jones, J. Llewellin Smith and himself. They heard that there were eight new vacant houses at Llwydcoed, built by Mr. Windsor Lewis. They had experienced some difficulty in getting hold of Mr Lewis, who was on active service, but in re- sponse to a letter sent by Mr F. W. Mander, they had received a wire stat- ing that he was prepared to let the eight new cottages to Belgian refugees for six months, he (Mr Windsor Lewis) to pay rates and taxes. (Loud ap- plause.) The cottages were known as New Scales Houses., and were situated in a charming spot, and he was sure the Belgians would feel at home there. There would be room for a family not exceeding six in each house. The cot- tages would be ready for occupation by the end of the present week, and if necessary the sub-committee would send someone up to London to bring the refugees down. (Applause.) The Stag Hotel, Trecynon, which had ceased to be a public-house and was now vacant, had also been placed at the disposal of the committee by Mr S. H. Shaw, of the Aberdare Town Brewery. (Applause.) This was a large building with 12 bedrooms, and would accommo- date from 25 to 30 people. However, they were going to start with the Llwydcoed scheme, which would cost them about C25 per week. He felt sure that Aberdare, who could really afford a contribution of £100 per week, would subscribe E25 per week for the up-keep of the families at Llwydcoed. A motion that Mr Windsor Lewis' offer be accepted was then carried with acclamation.

At the present time there were wild men and wild women about, and it was singularly appropriate that the name of the lecture should be "Wild Nature's Ways." Mr. Kearton, who is an interesting speaker, delivered an instructive lecture, which was illus- trated with lime-light views. Al r. Martin Palmer, Cwmdare, was at the lantern. It was a most enjoyable even, i ing, and it was hoped that Mr. Kear- ton would soon pay another visit.

Football. I BY "MUDDIED OAF." Glamorgan League, Division I., Aber- nant v. Dowlais.—This return match took place on Saturday last at the Dowlais Enclosure. The Abernant team were: Goal, Tom Edwards; backs, Eddy Morgan and John Lewis Wil- liams;. halves, D. John James, Walter Jenkins, and D. James Jones; for- wards, Tom Evans, Fred Cummings, Tom Dally, Ivor Edwards, and Pegler. A very exciting game followed. Tom Dally drew first blood for Abernant, which gave them the lead at the inter- val. After the change of ends Abernant continued the aggressive. Tom Evans had the misfortune to miss an open goal. The match culminated in a draw of a goal each. The Trecynon Windsors' Club have decided to disband owing to the fact that under the prevailing circum- stances the Second Division of the League has dwindled "nqi(i,-rsblv. knfl after having made such a brilliant start, too. The club possessed some of the finest talent in the district. Let us hope Trecynon will "rise again." We would like to draw our football i readers' attention to the advertisement, which appears in another column, by Mr. Albert Whittle, the well-known trainer and masseur. Mr. Whittle has been conuected with all the leading, Aberdare Football Teams for nearly a dozen years, and, as all football follow- ers know, has acquitted himself very creditably. Among his most notable achievements is the following:—In season 1911-12 he took the Aberdare Team along for 14 weeks with just bare- ly eleven players with no reserve to call upon. He trained the team which figured in the South Wales Cup Final for three successive seasons, and he had the coaching of the two players, Brad- bury and Hamilton, who were trans- ferred for £ 670. We have no space to include his many other achievements, and as there is no senior team in the town at present we would advise all local footballers to consult him regard- ing their training and injuries. BY "SOCCERITE." Cwmbach Excelsiors v. Merthyr Thursdays.—On Thursday last at the Ynys Meadow the Cwmbach Excelsiors entertained Merthyr Thursdays in a First Division, Glamorgan League match. The referee was Mr. J. Butler, Abernant. Linesman, Mr. D. J. Morris. The home team were: Goal, J. Wil- liams; backs, Dan Evans and T. Wil- liams; half-backs, W. C. Bevan, Dick Davies, and Ed.

Davies, and Quant; forwards, Teddy Thomas, S. Evans, Hancock, D. O. Williams, and Donovan. The home team won the toss. The visiting team broke away, but the home backs were soon on the defence. The home team started again, and T. Edwards scored a fine goal, which was disallowed, owing to one of the forwards being offside. Half-time arrived with I no score. After the interval the home team were awarded several corners, but nothing came of them. A fine run by one of the visiting forwards looked dangerous, but nothing came off. To- wards the end W. Davies scored from a scramble in the goal mouth. Thus the home team emerged winners by one goal to nil. Isaac and Davies showed fine form, and Edwards at half. < » Cwmbach Excelsiors v. Matthewstown. -On Saturday last a friendly game was played between Cwmbach Excelsiors and Matthewstown on the Ynys Meadow. The home team were:—Goal, J. Wil- liams; backs," Percy Jones and Sam Davies; half-backs, Olo7er Parfitt, Dick Davies and Edward* Edwards; for- wards, Morgan Thomas, W. C. Bevan, W. Davies, W. J.

Allen, and J. Burton. Referee, A. V. Jrirman, Cwmbach. ^he Albions lost the t<:o>, and had to play down the slope. They commenced fine, and pressed hard on the Cwmaman defence. A burst by Burton enabled Oliver to score. Cwm- aman broke away, and a miskick by Francis let Cwmaman in and scored. Interval, ono goal apiece. After the i.ta.nge oy ends Cwniamaii began to press oftener, and a fine centre by their left wing fiiabled J. L. Davies to score. Tiny now became exciting, hut nothing was scored. Final score: Cwmaman, I two goals; Albions, one goal. The First Division, Glamorgan League match between the Aberaman Albions and Treharris Juniors took place on Saturday last at the Garth Meadow before a good crowd.

Evans, Les Stephens, and Joe Ten- ant forwards, Dan James, Oswald Mehanne, George Ridrtards, Tom Jen- kins, and Will Rowberry. The home- sters opened in good style, and were seen pressing, but in spite of their pressure the visitors' defence was sound. Will Rowberry (the homesters' left wing) was seen to go through on his own, when he was fouled by his right half opponent. Treharris played a splen- did game, and nearly scored on several occasions, but failed, as they found that W. Morgan, right back, was too much for them. At half-time there was no score. On the resumption both teams worked like trojans, but their efforts were again fruitless. The homesters" goalie was on the alert each time, and saved many sharp and sudden shots. The game ended in a pointless draw. The pick of the Albions were Francis (goalie), Les Stephens, W. Walter Mor- gan (captain), who showed superior form to the others on the field. His kicking and tackling were great. CWMAMAN FOOTBALL. The Cwmaman First Eleven jour- neyed on Saturday, October 17th, to Cefn, Merthyr, to fulfil their Glamor- gan League, Division 1. fixture, and re- turned home after giving an excellent account of themselves. The result of the match was: Cwmaman, four goals; Cefn United, nil. Goal scorers: J. C. I Thomas (2), Timothy Evans (1), and J. H. Davies (1). « < < The Second Eleven entertained Aber- aman Albions Second Eleven on the same date at the Glynhafod Grounds in a Glamorgan League, Division III. match. This match was a keenly con- tested game from start to finish. Great rivalry exists between these two teams. Saturday's game was a good one, the absence of foul play being a happy feature of it. The result was once again favourable to Cwmaman, for they won by two goals to one. Cwm- aman thus maintained their ground record, not having lost a game at home last season or this. Cwmaman have not lost one game this season. Goal scorers: i W. T. James (1), J. L. Davies (1).
