1FOOTBALL IN INDIA
1 FOOTBALL IN INDIA. Brecknocks Still Going Strong. Football is evidently a raling passion with the Brecknockshire Battalion in India. Though the weather may be all humidity" (to quote the Bishop of Swansea's story) tho lads from BreckDOckshire stick to their favourite pastime, and parsae the big round ball all through the seasons with as much ardour as if they were at home. Writing on July 1st from Mhow, Sport says :— WAR FUND MATCH. A football match was played on Jane 24ih between the Brecknockshire Battalion and Mhow Garrison, the proceeds to go to the Mbow fund for providing coccforty for the wounded. By permission of Lieut.-Colonel Lord Glanusk, C.B., D.S.O., and officers the band of the Brecknocks, under the condnotor- ship of Bandmaster Cunniugton, played selec- tions before the match and daring the interval. The undermentioned lined up under Sergt.- Major Green, Brecknockshire Battalion Mbow Garrison.—Pte Davies, RA.M.C.; Driver Cook (R.T.D.) and Dr McKenzie (Devons); Bmr Goddard (Divn Staff), Dr McKay (R.T.D.), and Dr Wilson (Devon); Bmrs Taylor and Malioson, (Devons), Lt egood (R.T.D,), Stevens (Devona), and Mitchell (R.T.D ). Brecknocks.—Pte T H Ha l; Ptes S Smith and T E Pugh; Pte T Webb, Sergt J Powell, aiad Lanoe-Corpl J T Williams; Pte W Williams, Corpl J LI Williams, Ptes W Webb, J Davies, and A E Webb. About 100 wounded and convalescents were spectators. Short passing between the Breck- nocks' forwards took them well down, and W Williams receiving, near the corner, sent in a nice centre. Davies cleared. Malinson was put in possession, and, making ground, sent to Taylor. Webb, intercepting a pass from the latter, sent up the field to Williams, who centred. McKay just robbed W Webb, who was well placed. Botb sides were playing pretty football. A pretty ran was pat in by the Garrison front line, but the Brecknocks' halves were very soand, and nothing much got past them. Several rans were also made by the Brecknocks, and shots were tried by J LI Williams, J Davies, and W. A Webb. The Garrison custodian was playing a safe game, however, asing excellent judgment in gather- ing and clearing. From a ran on the right E Webb touched to Davies, and the latter sent out to Williams, who passed back to W A Webb. W. A. made a ground shot towards the left upright. and Davies threw himself full length to save, but the ball spon over his bands into the net. From the centre kick Mitchell took the ball to very near the cofner flag, and sent in a ripping centre, but Pagh headed out of danger. Shortly after Malinson saw his shot flash past the wrong side of the post. Another combined effort on the part of the Brecknooks resulted in McKenzie handling in the penalty area when trying to cleat from J Davies. J Williams took the kick and drove bard up under the bar, the ball going between the goal keeper's bands. Taylor seDt in a bard drive from well out, the ball going behind the far post. Half time was called with the Breoknooks leading two to nil.. After lemons Taylor changed Goddard and Crook, the former going to right back, the latter to right half. This half was equally as good as the previous one, bat not qaite so fast. Rons were put in by both sides, bat the de- fences were soand, tackling and clearing well. Taylor collided with Williams, and was only a passenger for some time. Malinson put in a lot of work, feeding the left, who were well watched by Powell and T Williams. The Garrison were awarded a free for a fool throw. Crook took the kick, and put in a high drop- ping shot. Hall polled the ball down in front of him, but before he ooald clear Malinson touched it past him into' the net. A few minates later J Davies sent in a hard drive, which looked a scorer, but McKay handled in the area. J Powell took the kick, sending in a hard drive to the right of the goalkeeper. Taylor finished a ran by Malinson and himself by shooting from an aoate angle. The ball was pat behind for a corner, which proved abortive. Full time was called with the Breok- nooks leading 8 goals to 1. The game was well contested throughout, clean, and pretty to watch. The gate receipts amounted to 97 16a 8d. "BETWEEN OURSELVES." A match was played on June 29th between the following teams of the Brecknocks, chosen respectively from the forwards and defenders on the first eleven list of the battalion. A fair orowd had the pleasure of seeing a good game. Sergt.-Major Green, who has heell entrusted with the training of the representa- tives of the battalion who will proceed to Cal- cutta to take part in the Indian Football Army Tournament commencing on July 12th, occu- pied his old post as referee, and the teams were as follows:- Dark Greens.—T H Hall; T E Pagh and S Smith Lance-Copl J T Williams, Lanoe-Corpl Hoddinott, and Sergt J Powell: Lance-Corpl Steer, Ptes Carter, Preeoe, S Williams, and Lance-Corpl W Powell. Stripes.-Lance-Corpi A Davies Ptes R C Price and D G Davies; Ptes T Webb, W Taylor, and E C Samuel; Pte W Williams, Corpl J L J Williams, Ptes W A Webb, J Davies, and E A Webb. The Dark Greens had to kick off, and Preece passed to S Williams, who sent out and forward to W Powell. Samuel cleared, and put the ball down the field to E Webb, who, with Davies and W A Webb, made a lot of ground. Some neat passing between the whole of the forward line ended in J Davies shooting just wide of the post. From the goal kick Hod- dinott made some ground, and put out to Steer, who raced away, only to be robbed by T Webb, who was watching this wing very closely. The game was being fought at a great pace, and the Green halves had their work out out in watching the Stripes' forwards, who were as sharp as needles. Steer received on the right from a long pass by Hoddinott, ran down and seot in a square pass. The ball went to Carter, who saw that he was marked by Smith, and allowed the ball to go through his legs to Preeoe, who was unmarked. With- out hesitation the latter shot hard, giving Davies no chance. From the centre kick the Stripes got well down, and Davies, putting in a fine shot, equalised. From now on until the whistle went the ball was carried from end to end with lightning rapidity. Half time, 1 goal each. The second half opened out with a visit to

each goal in tarn. J Powell sent over to Carter who touched to Steer; but this player was not permitted to go far, R S Price clearing. Hoddinott beaded to Carter, who gave to Preeoe, and this player shot bard, bitting the rtprigbt and the ball glancing behind the goal- beeper into the net. From the centre kick the Stripes again paid a visit to their opponents' territory, and with a neat bit of work W Williams was able to try a shot. This Pagh intercepted and took the ball well up the field. He collided with T Webb, their heads meeting, and the former had to retire with a split lip. Up to this unfortunate occurrence Pagh bad been playing a good game. Tbe Stripes' right wing was again prominent. E Webb centred to "Larry," who passed back to J Williams, and the latter sent in a hard drive from the penalty line, the ball entering the net well out of Ball's reaoh. After same mid-field play W Powell was put in possession. A neat bit of work by this wing player ended by a centre to Preece, who again foond the net. From the centre kick'Webb touched to J Williams, who pot through to Davies. Davies in tare passed out to W Williams, who sent it back to W A Webb. This player shot, and Hall saved at full length, putting behind for a corner. Webb took the kick, aud Smith cleared. W A Webb tried another shot, which Hall stopped but Davies nipped through and toaobed the ball into the net. From now on antil time was called both teams pressed in tarn, but there was no farther soore. Result: a drawn game of three goals eacb.

-= IT IS DIFFERENT —qoite different—after taking a few doses of Beecham's Pill p. The low-spirited condition caused by derangement of the digestive organs gives place to a welcome sensation of bright- ness and better tone the depression which accompanies many forms of dyspeptic trouble is banished, and a feeling of cheerfulness oomes in its stead. In fact, people who take Beecham's Pills generally find their spirits im- proved and their interest in life stimulated AFTER USING this remarkably efficacious medicine. Beecham's Pills make all the difference The reason of this pleasant change is perfectly clear. Bercham's Pills have been specially Prepared to act npou the important organs which govern the function of digestion, and which, when out of order, are the cause of so nauch discomfort and so many ailments. That Beecham's Pills do what they were designed to do, and do it admirably, is abundantly proved by their enormous sale and changeless popu- larity, It is well to remember, therefore, that dyspeptic depression disappears and the oatlook grows brighter after taking Beecham's Pilis Sold everywhere in boxes, labelled 18 3d and 88 Od 207th Year of the SUN FIRE OFFICE.

SHOCKING BRECON CASE
SHOCKING BRECON CASE. Terrible Neglect of Children. At Brecon Borough Police Court on Monday -be,fore the Mayor (Mr Gwilym T Jones) and Mr Jas. Morgan—Sarah Ann Lloyd, of 28, Newgate street, was charged with neglecting five children in a manner likely to cause injury to their health. She pleaded not guilty, and elected tb be dealt witb summarily. Mr Lewis W H Jones prosecuted on behalf of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and stated that this was a very sad case. The defendant was the wife of a soldier uow serving at Liverpool, and was in receipt of 448 per week altogether, so that there was no excuse on the groand that she was poverty stricken. Inspector Evans, the Breconshire inspector of the N.S.P.C.C., stated that in oonseqaence of a complaint ho called at defendant's house in August, 1911, and found defendant's five children in a dirty and verminous condition, and the bedding and the bouse also verminous. He warned defendant and noticed an improve- ment when he paid another visit a month later. He kept the case under observation till Jaly 27tb, 1914, when there was noch an improvement that he was able to drop it. On Saturday, the 22nd inst., he received a farther complaint, and went to the house again. Three of the children, Nellie (6 years), Hilda (3), and Reginald (2) came to the door and said their mother was haymaking, a statement which be afterwards ascertained to be trae. The baby (Olga, 13 months) was on a sofa. The heads of the children at the door were so much affected with vermin that witness did not then go into the bouse. He called in Dr, Francis, and together they examined the children. John, aged 13, was verminous about the bead and body, and the three children be had previously seen at the door were alive with lice, both about the head and body, and their hair was matted with vermiu, which had eaten into the skins of their scalps. They were thin and anaemic. The baby was also verminous. The bedding was in a filthy condition, and the floors were black with dirt. Witness called at the house that morning and foond that defen- dant had bought new bedding and bed clothes and bad cat the children's hair, but their scalps had a pitiable appearance. The condition of the hoaBe was still very offensive. So far as be knew defendant walb a sober woman. She told him she bad 31s a week separation allow- ance, 12s a week from one son who was employed in the town, and Is a week from another who was selling newspapers. She went oat working herself, and he bad warned her that she ought to stay at home and look after her children Her rent was 28 per week, but on July 22nd there was a good deal owing. Dr. Francis gave evidence folly bearing out the story told by the Inspeotor, and added that the baby was also suffering from whooping coagb, and it was dangerous to leave a child so suffering. Undoubtedly the verminous state of the children was injurious to their health. Defendant asserted that she left the baby with a neighbour in the morning, and it was then perfectly clean. Sbe had done her best for the ohildren, and if the Bench woald give her a month she woald get into another house. The Mayor said this was a very bad case, and the society were quite justified in bringing it forward. The full penalty for the offence was six months' imprisonment, bat in the interests of the ohildren and on conditions the Bench intended to see whether defendant woald make any improvement. The oase woald be adjourned for one month and defen- dant woald be under the supervision of tbe inspector. She most not go put to work, she was receiving sufficient money, J62 4s per week, to keep her house in the best of order. If she did not improve during the month she woald be sent to prison.

Notes from the Wye Valley
Notes from the Wye Valley. In spite of the opposition at first manifested to the movement in favour of women labour on the land, the help of women in outdoor work is becoming daily more popular in the Wye Valley, as they have proved themselves of great service in the bay field, and on many farms have performed work always hitherto done by men, saoh as pitohing and unloading hay day after day. Thus they have proved beyond doubt that they were not taking up the work for mere show, bat were prompted by the troe spirit of patriotism, longing to do their part to keep the country going "till the boys oome home." Little can the people who are antouohed by this war realise what sacrifices are being made by some of the women of this oountry, who have given their mankind to tbe colours, and in addition work in tbe fields for ten hours daily, carrying out their household duties in the early morning and late at night. Those who have witnessed the harvest operations in the hayfields of the Wye Valley have been astonished at the part played by a large number of women. Others are working zealously at tb? Red Cross Hospital, and when the day comes for the historian to set before the public the doings of the people at home in war time, a glorious page will be given to the patriotic women of Mid-Wales. Builth Wells will have a prominent place on that page. There are, it is true, districts where it is unnecessary to employ women on the land, as the labour is quite as plentiful as in pre-war I time, aod the farmers have been able to manage in the hayfield without qplling for extra assistance. The crops have proved a record, but the glorious weather has made harvest work much lighter, the chief labour having been mowing and conveying the bay to the boildings. Apropos the foregoing notes, at a meeting of the Boilth Rural Tribunal on Monday Colonel King Hunter pointed out that there was a great demand for men, especially for young men, and urged that there was much work on the land which could be done by women so as to release men for military servioe. Mr Thomas Pogb remarked that the women on the farms were doing all they coold, but there was saoh a scarcity of women in the rural districts that it was as much as they could do to perform the house work. Those who lived near a village, perhaps, would be able to secure female laboar. Mr Roger Powell said that be lived near a village and bad been able to secure female labanr. One woman had been working with him all the summer and she was an excellent worker. Little advantage has been taken of the offer of the Military authorities to provide soldier labour for tbe harvest in the locality of Builth Wells. On only one farm in the distriot have I seen men in uniform at work, and in that case the employer was more than satisfied with the men supplied. It is within my knowledge that several applications for soldiers to work on the land have been made from this locality, but they were in most cases for particular men who had not been in training very long and could not be liberated, and the applicants were not prepared to take other men. > R.W.
