A NEW KIND OF FIRSTAID I
A NEW KIND OF "FIRST-AID." I NOVELTY FOR LOVERS OF I DUMB ANIMALS. Quite an interesting novelty has made its appearance, being a first-aid ointment devised especially for the cuts, sprains and skin diseases of our dumb friends. It is realln, Zam-Buk with all its well-known healing properties in a different or stronger form adapted for horses, dogs, sheep, cattle and pets. Veterinary Zam-Buk, as it is called, is reddish in colour and is sold in red packets as distinguished from the green packets of the ordinary Zam-Buk. It is a little cheaper than the household preparation, in that it is not affected by the new war tax on patent medicines. It is really a fine healing, soothing and antiseptic preparation which has evoked a chorus of unstinted praise from farmers, stock- keepers, fanciers and lovers of pets. General Botha's famous charger was cured by this Zam-Buk of some obstinate sores which veterinary surgeons had treated for some time in vain. In the farm-yard, stable, kennel and poultry-run, Zam-Buk provides for the first time an ideal and handy r r Vet.

I BARGOED. ALIEN ARTISTES.—John Ho wells (46), collier, was summoned at the local Court on Friday with failing to deliver to the police a signed statement of aliens staying at his house in Henry-street. Evidence was given by P.S. Row to the effect that Japanese, Dutch and Belgian subjects had stayed at defendant's house, and these people had actually left before the police were notified of the fact.—Defen- dant said he had never kept foreigners before, and did not understand that he was to report to the police. The lodgers were music-hall artistes.—A fine of 2os. was imposed.
Be Your Own Minister of Munitions
Be Your Own Minister of Munitions! Good food, well digested, is an essential to your physical and mental efficiency as are shells and machine guns to the success of our gallant army. The enemies of your body-and they are legion—have you at a great disadvantage unless in times of stress and strain, when your powers of resistance are taxed to the utmost, you can fall back on ample reserves of strength and vitality, built up by the thorough digestion of the food you eat. Indigestion and sluggish action of the liver and bowels—these are your labour troubles, and they call for sympathetic, well-considered treatment. Don't try to force them back to work by drastic measures pick-me-ups, violent purgatives and the like-for along that way lies open rebellion. Coax and help them back to willing healthy activity and efficiency by giving them the gentle bracing help of a good digestive tonic and liver in- vigorator, such as Mother Seigel's Syrup. Then note how, day by day, your supply of strength and vital energy increases, until at length it is fully equal to every demand that is made upon it.
:;n: r ￼ When Life was Simpler Life was Longer. Every Picture tells a Story." 1w I W HEN the organs begin to weaken, whether early or late in life, the hardworking kidneys usually tire out first. Failing eye-sight, stiff, achy joints, rheumatic pains, backache and distressing urination are often due only to weak kidneys. At the first sign of weakness give the kidneys prompt attention. Drink water to flush the kidneys, and use Doan's back- ache Kidney Pills to strengthen them. Go back to the Simple Life, to the sensible habits of your boyhood days. Eat less meat, avoid over work, excesses and worry, and take more out-door exercise, rest and sleep. This sensible treatment will keep the kidneys in condition, lengthen life, make it easier; and perhaps avert altogether the more serious kidney diseases. Aged 85. Well 7 Years. On July 22nd, 1907, Mr. W. Fedurb, of 16, Park Street, Folkestone, said :— Doan's Backache Kidney Pills have been a great comfort to me in my old age. My trouble was lumbago and kidney complaint, I used to get frightful pains in my sides, loins and back, and could only get about with the aid of sticks. I fell down help- less once. But the change brought about by I Doan's Pills is simply wonderful, for I can walk out in ease and comfort now, and have no sign of kidney trouble.—(Signed), W. FEDARB." On January 2nd, 1915-over seven years later-Mr. Fedarb said I was eighty- five in October, but I am sure I should not be as well as I am to-day if it hadn't been for Doan's Pills. They are my greatest blessing." All Dealers, or 2/9 a box, 6 boxes 13/9 from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells-st., Oxford- st., London, W.

SOUTH WALES CALVINISTIC METHODSTSI
SOUTH WALES CALVINISTIC METHOD!STS. QUARTERLY MEETINGS AT RHYMNEY. 6 1: .L_L" There was a Large and representative gathering of delegates at the quarterly meetings of the South Wales and Mon- mouthshire district of the Welsh Calvin- istic Methodists, at Ebenezer, Twyncarno, Rhymney, on Tuesday. Most excellent arrangements were made by the local churches to give a loyal reception to the delegates, and before the conclusion of the conference there were many expressions of h gh approval of what had been done in this respect. All the leading divines of the association were in attendance, and preceding and following the actual days of the conference many sermons (in both languages) of a high intellectual character and deep fervour were listened to by large congregations in the several places of worship, not only at Rhymney, but also at Pontlottyn and Abertysswg. The first conference took place on the afternoon of Tuesday, over which the Rev. William Jones, Aberdulais, the retiring moderator, presided. He was supported by Dr. D. Harris Williams, Newport (vice-chairman) Rev. B. Jones, Neath (secretary), and Mr. R. W. Jones, B.A., J.P.. Pengam (treasurer), together with a number of the elders of the Association. After the calling of the roll and other formalities, the Chairman formally intro- duced Dr. Harris Williams as the new moderator. In doing so he paid a high tribute to his successor. They had been old friends from the days of Trevecca, and he thought they had a warm place in each other's heart for one another. He would look back with pride upon his year of office,, although the duties involved I had been onerous. He was, however, glad of one thing, that he would not be troubled again to hold so important a position. Dr. Williams, on taking over the con- stitution deed, thanked them for the honour they had conferred upon him. It I was the greatest event in his history. He assured them that nothing would be lacking on his part to faithfully discharge the many duties which would devolve upon him, but he asked their united co-operation. r4. fT\1- L_¿,=.L: — 4- STATISTICS. ine bLatisucs icpui t showed that the total number of churches in the union was 71. The number of sittings had been increased by 440 to 32,040. There were 65 preachers, with 308 deacons, 6,773 communicants, and 3,628 children. The Sunday school officers an d teachers totalled 1,079, with 10,859 scholars. The total receipts amounted to £ 16,874, or a decrease of £ 4,066. I-NIINISTE RIAI, R. A. iV. C, An application was received from the West Glamorgan monthly meeting that Mr. Alfred Jenkins, Pencoed, a brother to the Rev. J. L. Jenkins, Trinity, Aberdare, should be ordained at that meeting. The delegate explained that Mr. Jenkins had joined the R.A.M.C. as a private and was ex- pected to leave very shortly. He was a well-known student and had passed through the Mansfield Settlement in London, and last year went to Aberys- twyth, where he joined the Y.M.C. A. and went to camp with them. Last year he joined the R.A.M.C. Although the pro- cedure was irregular, it was thought that if he was ordained before going to the Front, he may be able to do some additional service on the fie ld.-Rev. E. T. Jones, M.A., Cardiff, supported the application, and suggested that the con- stitution deed could be relaxed to meet the exceptional circumstances of this case.-Several speakers, in pointing out that such an ordination would be con- trary to the deed of constitution and would probably create a precedent which may lead to considerable trouble, said they had nothing whatever against Mr. Jenkins personally.—Finally, on the motion of Ald. S. N. Jones, it was decided that a special ordination should be held i and that the committee arrange for date and time to meet Mr. Jenkins. PENGAM GARDEN CITY. Rev. J. Mor- gan Jones, Cardiff, made a special appeal for a contribution to enable a cause to be opened at Pengam Garden City. This was a new district in which there were hundreds of houses, but no place of worship. During a recent ten days' mission, about 100 people were converted, and a chapel was urgently needed. A temporary place would be opened next week. SUSTENTATION FUND.- A report of the discussion on the Sustentation Fund, which took up the remainder of the day's conference, appears in another column. VALEDICTORY ADRDESS.-In the even- ing the Rev. William Jones delivered his Valedictory address, taking for his subject The Connexion's Indebtedness to its Traditions, its Ideals, and the Bible." There was a large attendance. WEDNESDAY'S PROCEEDINGS Dr. Harris Williams presided over the second day's conference, which was attended by the delegates and officers as on the previous day. In addition to dealing with the Sustentation Fund, the question of raising funds for the Welsh Hospital was discussed. During the afternoon session a ocrdial reception was accorded to Sir Wm. James Thomas, who was present to advocate the claims of the Welsh Hospital at Netley upon their generosity. He dwelt on the good work which had already been accomplished by the hospital. It was one of the finest institutions of its kind in the country, said Sir William, and it was the only voluntary hospital which the War Office had ac- cepted. The matron of the hospital was a Welsh lady, while there were two Welsh doctors on the staff. A word or two from a Welsh nurse or doctor to a wounded I soldier, added Sir William, amid laughter, was worth more than twenty bottles of medicine. He visited the hospital every month, and each time he went there he felt proud of being a Welshman. (Ap- plause.) It was his ambition to raise a sum of from £ 10,000 to £ 20,000 from Wales and Monmouthshire towards the hospital within the next month, and. he asked the association to be good enough to set aside one Sunday for collections towards this most deserving object. He personally had undertaken to add 5 per cent. to the total amount collected, and he hoped the result would be a sum of not less than £ 20,000. — On the motion of the Rev. J. Wilson Roberts (Ynyshir), seconded by Dr. D. M. Phillips (Tvlors- town) and Alderman S. N. Jones, it was unanimously agreed to comply with Sir William's appeal. ORDINATION.—During the morning, eleven preachers were ordained to the full work of the ministry. The address on Church Polity was given by the Rev. J. C. Evans (Borth), whilst the charge was delivered by the Rev. Wm. Thomas (Maesteg). MINISTERS' HIGH COMPLIMENT. As stated above, the arrangements for the reception of the large number of delegates and ministers were of a most complete character, an d Rhymney and district sustained its highest traditions in the hospitality extended to the visitors. This was given expression to at Brynhy- fryd Chapel by the Rev. J. Morgan Jones, Cardiff, an ex-Moderator, and at Ebenezer Chapel by the Rev. D. Harris Williams, D.D., Newport, who in moving a vote of thanks to the Local Committee, said that no town had extended greater hospitality to the Association, or given them a heartier welcome, than they had at Rhymney, the inhabitants of which had sustained their noblest traditions. A word of praise should be given to the indefatigable secretary (Mr. John H. Griffith, grocer), whose energy in arrang- ing the many details for the visit of the Association, knew no bounds. Mr. David Morgan (Price-street), as the local treaS: urer, also rendered excellent service.
