ILLNESS OF MIL T JONES PENRONW
ILLNESS OF MIL T. JONES, PENRONW. We are sorry to learn of the illness of Mr T. Jones, County Councillor for the Conwil dis- trict, who has been in ill-health for some time, and his condition during the last fortnight has been such as to cause tho greatest anxiety. We trust however that with medical treat- men he will soon be restored to his usual health
The Churches. A special harvest thanksgiving service will be held at Parky velvet Unitarian Chapel on Sunday evening next at 6.30, when the service will be conducted by the Rov Philemon Moore, B.A. (pastor). ••• Many Welsh towns haive agreed to start their Sunday evening religious services at live o'clock during the winter months and to finish at six o'clock in order to carry out the lighting restriction orders. Owing to lighting, rest ructions the practice which was to take place at Lammas street on Sunday evening, in preparation for the annual cymanfa., had to be stopped. A large number of people had turned up from the surrounding districts, and disappointment was felt that no rehearsal could be held. •*« Harvest thanksgiving services will bo held at the English Congregational Church, Car- marthen, on Sunday, when the Rev J. Gilbert Rees, St. Paul's, Swansea, will conduct the services. At the evening service a rendering of "The Wilderness" (Sir John Goss) will be given by the choir. The collections are in aid of the Carmarthenshire infirmary. Half-yearly services in connection with Babell O.M. Church will be held on Sunday and on Monday evening, when the Rev R. Beynon, B.A., Aberrave, will be the special minister engaged for the occasion. •*# Mr John Hinds, M.P., intends to present to Penuel Welsh Baptist Church, Carmarthen, a set of individual communion cups in memory of the death in action of his only son, Lieut, W. P. Hinds. The Congregational Church of Siloli, Peny- bane, held their annual meot'ngs the other day when the Rev W. J. Rees, Alltwen, and the Rev James John, Llansteplian. officiated. The proceeds amounted to over £22, which will be divided between different funds in connec- tion with the war. especially the Y.M.C.A— an example which should be followed by many other churches. **• The young people of the Tabernacle Baptist Church have already met to consider their winter arrangements, and it has been again decided to form a. Christian Endeavour Society as in former years. The election of officers resulted in Mr Thos. John Evans (who has already hold the office for three previous sessions) being re-elected secretary, and LNIR 1. H. Unguedr-Thomas being re-elected trea- surer, and Miss May Thomas (Magbele) was chosen as accompanist. The president of the Society is the Rev E. Ungod Thomas, and the vice-president for the coming session are Mr Ixerbert Rees, Francis terrace Mr J. Evans, St. Davids street; and Mr Willie Thomas, Jubilee-place. The meet'ngs will be held each Thursday at 7 p.m. The Rev J. T. Job has received a unani- mous call to become the pastor of Pentowr C.M. Church, Fishguard. He is now minister at Carnedde, N. Wales. As our readers are well aware, he is a nephew of the late Dr Job, Conwil. We sincerely hope that Mr Job, who is a chaired and crownwd bard of the National Eisteddfod will see his way to accept the invi- tation. ft** Mr Augustus Richards, Pontypridd, minis- terial student at the Old College School, Carmarthen, has passed the entrance examina- tion ofBala. aJid Aberystwyth (joint) last week. The work during the session and until the end of the war will only be carried at Bala. The premises at Aberystwyth are being used by the Red Cross since May, 1915. Gaersalem C.M. Church has lost a great leader through the death of the late Mr J. Davies, who has been an officer of the church for many years. He was an uncle of Mr J. Timothy Davies, who will be ordained this week and inducted as pastor of Pontgarrcg and Bwlchygroes before the end of the month. • Hernion, the Welsh C.M. Church at Pont- ardulais, have decided to unite and to engage one pastor again in the future as they used to be in the past, when the Rev J. M. James; Penclawdd, was their minister. Several names have been suggested for the purpose, but the voting has not yet taken place. It is hoped that a decision will soon be arrived at. #»* The effects of the war on the pulpit and the classrooms are becoming more. and more marked every day. We have been informed that some churches have been without minis- ters for 10 undays on end. An empty pulpit on a Sunday is the rule to-day and not the ex- ception. The weak churches suffer mostly al- though they can least afford it. The outlook for the future is gloomy, because the schools and colleges ar& all empty. **• The Rov S. Protheroe, pastor of Wiston and Elim churches, has resigned the pastorship. Jn fact it took place many months ago on his joining the forces under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. The churches however are very loth to accept th resignation, and have written begging him to reconsider the njatter and re- turn to the pulpit when the War Office release him. We are given to understand that the last answer was in the negative. Anniversary services were hold in the Con- gregational Church at Penclawdd on Sunday and Monday. The ministers engaged for the occasion were the Rev I). S. Rees and the Rev S. T. James. The congregations were large and appreciative. The message was delivered with force and earnestness that cannot be ade- quately described. The Congregational Church is the largest in tho place. ««* The Rev D. Owen, C.M., minister and pastor of Penuel Church, Penclawdd, has received a unanimous invitation to the pastorship of Alexandria road Presbyterian Church, Swan- sea. The call has been accepted. He pro- poses to commence duties in the new charge before the end of October.

Spurrell, and Mr Rees Davies. TRANSFER REFUSED. Mr James Walters applied for a temporary transfer of the license of the Volunteer Stores, Lammas street. Head Constable Maya 11 asked the applicant if it were true that when he lived at Coombe. he spent a good deal of his tim at the Wern public' house. Applicanb said that he did not. The police say you did?—That is a lie. The Mayor said that this application would not be granted. It would he better for the applicant not to have it. TRANSFER GRANTED. Richard C'hilds, formerly of Skewen, applied for a temporary transfer of the license of the Falcon. The business rad been in the hands of the Official Receiver, who now raised no objection to the transfer. The transfer was granted. THE DEATH OF A CHILD. Mr Wm. Robinson, Richmond terrace, was charged with having neglected to provide a fireguard in a room in which his child was. The child who was 4 £ years of age was scalded to death as previously reported. The Bench, in fining the defendant 5s, ex- pressed their regret. SOLDIER'S WIDOW AND THE POLICE. Margaret Barnett who said that she was the widow of a soldier and had one child, was charged with being drunk and disorderly. She now informed the Bench that she told the collstalble that a young man like him would be better employed fighting for his King and country than in turning out the widow of a man who had been killed in France. Mr Spurrell said that she would do more honour to her lato husband's memory by keep- ing sober. The Bench fined the defendant 5s. Defendant: I have not the money to pay. You will have to take me. 1 have to work very hard the, 17s 6d I get from the War Office is not enough to keep me and the child. Tho Mayor: She lias money to get drunk. Defendant o, sir; only once in a chance.
WEATHER AND THE CROPS
WEATHER AND THE CROPS. The harvest has ended with September in the leading counties of production, hut an unusual quantity remains to be stacked. The yield is probably a full average, and, tho (, n ripening being slow, hut little has been shed. The condition is softe, hut there is very fair quality and natural weight. The labours of sowing for a new crop have already begun, but the frequent two months' exemptions for harvesters expire just when the sowings are beginning. The agriculural situation is un- doubtedly grave, the supply of labour admitt- ing of no further depictions without some- thing like a breakdown.—From Monday's "Mark Lane Express."
I Carmarthen Council and Electric Light Charges
Carmarthen Council and Electric Light Charges. PARLIAMENT ASKED TO INTERVENE. A meeting of the Finance Committee of the Carmarthen Town Council was held on Wed- nesday. Aid. L. D. Thoma s presided, and there were also present: Messrs J. Crossman, A. Fuller Mills, W. Gibbon, T. Williams, Dd. Williams, W. Dunn Williams, W. J. Martin. Mr David Williams drew attention to the fact that they had to pay the Electric Light Co.'s charges, although they got little or, no light. He thought that they ought to ask teir members of Parliament to bring in a bill to relieve the Councils in such cases of their legal liability. He moved that they should ask the Borough Member to move in the ma/tter. I Rev A. F. Mills: As our member has done I so little for us in the years gone by, it would be a good thing if he would take the matter up and introduce a small measure with the permis'ion of the Government. It would bring him into not oriety and us. It was decided to write to the Borough and County Members on the subject. RIVAL FLAG DAYS. Mr F. Humphreys attended and asked the Council if they could allow the Red Cross Society to have a flag day on November fair. The day had already been allotted to the Y.M.C.A. but that was the day on which the Red Cross Flag Day was being held all over the country. A good deal of money was already going out of town weekly to the YjM.C.A., and they could have another day. IR-ev A. F. Mills: The soldiers in every part are in favour of the Y.M.C.A. Mr J. Crossman: My son tells me that they are working even in Mesopotamia. It was dcided to let the Red Cross have a day later on, and to adhere to the Y.A1.C.A, date.
W ANTED, BUTTERMAKERS. British Butter is unquestionally better than foreign yet the latter is often bought in preference. This is all injustice both to the British producer and the buyer. It is an jnjuty which could easily be avoided. The Britisn housewife believes that butter presenting » rich golden uniform colour is the ideal. The foreign producer meets her wish, and all his butter has the rich golden colour which sells. A perfectly safe means is provided whereby the British maker can impart to his butter jest that golden colouring which will com- mend it to the eye. as decidedly as its quality will commend it to the palate. The remedy is the "Silver Churn" butter colour, manufactured by Oldfield, Pat- tinson and Co., of Manchester, the successful survivor of the severest tests at the principal shows, where it has gained First Class awards for 30 years. Equally satisfactory is the high praise it has won in the numerous dairies where it is regularly used. These competent approvals are due to the absence of any un- evenness or muddiness in the Colouring, and to the fact that the use of Silver Churn does not effect the buttermilk. The butter itself is not injured in the process; it is improved. Its delicate creamy flavour is enhanced. It should be clearly understood that Silver Churn is a vegetable product, entirely free from any aniline dye. (A guarantee by the makers to this effect will be given any user desiring it). It may be obtained from Chemists and dairy stipply men in M., Is., 2s., 53., 8s., and 14s. bottlep. To secure sat- isfaction obtain the "Silver Churn" brand. Free trial samples from the manufacture?.

Welsh National Council
Welsh National Council. REPLIES TO THE CENTRAL BOAltD. The Sub-Committee of the Central Welsh Board, which met at Carmarthen on Saturday, Alderman D. H. Williams, Barry, presiding, considered replies rocoived from several of the local education authorities to points raised in the pamphlet "To-day and To-morrow in Welsh Education," recently issued by the Board. All the replies wore not to hand, but so far as the authorities were conoerned they were unanimous in their desire to see the establish- ment of a Welsh National Council of Educa- tion, controlling all forms of education in the Principality, other than University education, by the extension of the Central Welsh Board into such a Council.
Carmarthen Helpers. If Carmarthen needs encouragement and help, surely both will be found in such an earnest message as the one we are privileged to giive to-day. It is from a Carmarthen woman and rings with sincerity. Read it and bear in mind that it is only one of manv such stirring messages. On January 8th, 1913. Mrs M. Davies, of 1, Magazine Row, near the Park, Carmarthen, said "I have occasionally been troubled with my back during the past twelve months. The pains were at times sharp a.nd shooting, and I could scarcely straighten myself after stoop- ing. I had pains in my head, and suffered with dizziness. There were twinges of rheu- matism in my arms, and also some urinary disorder. I noticed mv kidneys were always affected when I caught cold. "Since taJdng Down's backache kidney pills, however, I have been a great deal better. These pills have always eased my back and head, and put me right in other respects. 1 speak well of Doan's pills to all mv friends. (Signed) "M. Davies." On February 14th. 1916—over three years IIc')¡tcr-ÙTs Davies said "Doan's pills cured me of kidney troubles three, rears ago and I am glad to say I keep well by taking one of them occasionally." The whole body suffers when the kidneys aim congested, for then the human drainage is obstructed. 0 The kidneys filter the blood, and drain off poisonous solids, and liquid waste, which if re- tained caused dropsy, rheumatism, gout, sciatica, stone, bladder inflammation, etc. And it is in these ailments that Doan's pills aiie so successful, for they remedy the cause, tho weakened kidneys.
