Forey, who met with a fatal acci- dent at Gorllwyn Level, Cwmdare, Aug. 27, 1915 Who could miss you more than we P No heart could feel the grief within like ours, nor tell how great the loss to part with one we loved so dear. W We miss you here, we miss you there; Oh dear, we miss you every- where. -Ever remembered by your beloved wife and children. Don't grieve, my wife and children dear, I am not dead but sleeping near. In health and strength he left his home, Not thinking death so near; The call was short, the shock severe, His place is vacant here. While in this world we still remain We only meet to part again; But when we reach the Heavenly shore Those who once meet shall part no more.

EDWARDS.—In loving memory of our dear mother, Harriet Edwards, of 9 Elizabeth Street, Aberdare, who dep&rted this life August 31, 1913. Had He asked us, well we know We should cry, "Oh, spare this blow"; Yes, with streaming tears should pray, Lord, we love her, let her stay." But the Lord doth nought amiss, And since He hath ordered this, We have nought to do but still Rest in silence on His will. From Husband, Sons and Daughters.

The War. Gunner Thomas Ingram, Godreaman, killed in action, as reported in our last issue. Pte. William Rosser Morgan, Albert Street, Aberdare, who died from wounds in France, July 30th. This is a photo of Lance Corpl. Atfred Morris, Glyn Neath, whose death in action we reported last week. He came home from India at the end of 1914, and an accident to his knee while training at Winchester prevented him going to France until October of last year. He had been some time in Hospital at Rouen, owing to illness. He was an expert bomb-thrower. He was a brother to Mr. John B. Morris, White Hart House, Glyn Neath.
Age Limit to be Raised
Age Limit to be Raised? Men of 41-45 for Home Defence. Will the men between the ages of 41 and 45 be called up for the Army? Mr. Asquith last week said the matter was not under consideration. Despite this there is a general feeling in political circles that the military age will be extended during the autumn Session. The object will be to keep the forty- one-forty-fivers generally for home de- fence, so as to spare the greatest possible number of young men for service abroad in next year's Continental campaigns. It is confidently stated that the authorities have "got the necessary forms in the press, so that no time may be lost when Parliament sanctions the ex- tension.
Cwmgwrach Soldier Wounded
Cwmgwrach Soldier Wounded. Private Hopkin Morgan, son of Mrs. Idris Evans, Cwmgwrach, and nephew to the well-known Welsh musician, Mr. T.

The soldiers shewn in the photograph- are brothers, and the sons of Mr J- Hughes, of 9 Rock Terrace, Ynysybwl.

Owen Hughes, who is seen standing, has succumbed to wounds received in action on the 10th July, 1916. Sitting is Lance Corporal Ted Hughes, who is now a patient at the Liverpool Military Hospital, suffering from a broken left shoulder.

LIEUT CLIFFORD STANTONS ACHIEVEMENT
—— LIEUT. CLIFFORD STANTONS ACHIEVEMENT. The following appeared in the Lon- don Letter of the Western Mail :— "From a wounded sergeant of a Welsh battalion, whom I discovered somewhere in London this evening, 1 had some interesting sidelights regard- ing the great attack on the Mametz Woods. He told me, for instance, how the Aberdare boys in one battalion shook hands and said Good-bye just, before they were to rush over the para- pet of their trench for the big rush. But what I heard about Lieutenant, Clifford Stanton, elder son of Mer- thyr's M.P., was most thrilling of all. He described how young Mr. Stanton went out under cover of night to cap- ture a German flag which had been sported on the enemy's trench for days, presumably as a boast of invinci- bility. It was a perilous adventure, but he brought back his prize all right,. and it has passed into the colonel's keeping. Perhaps Aberdare will have that flag some day."
DOWLAIS ILPeer HANDED OVER
DOWLAIS I.L.Peer HANDED OVER. At Merthyr on Tuesday Walter Wm. Fishpool (37), of Penywern, Dowlais, chairman of the Dowlais branch of the I.L.P., and a deacon at a local Baptist Chapel; Thomas William Stevenson (32), of Bronwen Place, Penydarren, and Edward Jones (38), of Tramroad Side, Merthyr, were charged with being ab- sentees under the Military Service Act. Lieut. Morgan Thomas, military repre- sentative for the Merthyr area, appeared to prosecute. Fishpool said he could not answer to anything he did not agree with con- | scientiously. The local tribunal granted exemption, but the appeal tribunal overruled that. The whole thing was illogical to his mind. Stevenson made a similar plea, adding that his religious belief prohibited him taking part in what he believed to be contrary to God's will." Jones said, "I received notice calling up Jones Edwards, but I am Edward Jones." The Stipendiary (Mr. R. A. Griffith): It is all right on the paper. Jones added: "I have a conscientious objection to militarism in all its phases, and cannot reconcile my conscience to submit to the military authorities." The Stipendiary: I hope you will make a good soldier nevertheless. Fines of 40s. were imposed in each, case, and the defendants were ordered to be handed over to the military author- ities.
