A POPULAR MOVEMENT
A POPULAR MOVEMENT. We are glad that the Liberals of Radnorshire have without delay taken the initiative to recog- nise the great services rendered to the Party by Sir Francis Edwards. The movement will be hailed with infinite joy not only by his old and close friends in Radnorshire, but by those in Breconsbire and throughout the Principality. Whatever 'may be the form which the token of appreciation will take, its intrinsic value will fall short of any adequate recognition of the magnifi- cent .services Sir Francis has given to the county and nation. These can never be fully stat- ed or amply recognised, bu-c, the gratitude of his friends land admirers can and will be shown in a measure by each takings a part in making the ap- preciation as high and as worthy as it can pos- sibly be made. The Liberal Party owe to Sir Francis a debt of gratitude which can never be fully expressed or repaid. Against all the terri- torial and landed interests of the county—and we. say it with all respect—no other exponent of Liberalism could have successfully wooed and won the iseiaic and held it from time to time during the la-st 26 years. His charming personality, his readiness 'to serve the county in many and various directions, irrespective of Party, creed, or cluss, have all contributed to the affection with which he is held. As a Welsh nationalist his services deserve recognition. Of late there has been much talk of Federal Home Rule and devolution, and many appear to regard it as quite a new thing. It is not so, for those who have followed the Parlia- mentary career of Sir Francis Edwards will re- collect the splendid efforts he made to secure for Wales a measure of devolution early in his Par- liamentary career, even going so far as. to intro- duce into the House a Bill dca,ling with it. The proposal was then not accepted, but, if the reform doos come about now or later, it must not be forgotten that one of its pioneers was Sir Francis Edwards. The fact that he made his home in and represented a, county which was among those least imbued with a spirit of Welsh nationalism did not Jessen enthusiasm for the old language, and his love for the Welsh poets led him to translate the beauties of their works for the benefit and to the doiighfu of his Saxon friends. His interest in the Eisteddfod never slackened, indeed he accom- panied the Prime Minister—with whom he is on intimate terms of friendship—to the National Eis- teddfod last August. Sir Francis has rendered in- valuable service to Radnorshire and Wales, land we feel confident (hat the movement just initiated will result in the success it deserves.
BACK TO A REAL XMAS
BACK TO A REAL XMAS. It will be a. great Christmas this year. After so long a period under the dark shadow of war, we shall celebrate the greatest of home festivals in a vastly different spirit .to what we did a yea.r ago. It will, indeed, be a striking contrast. True, we never forgot old "Father Christmas" even during the War. The spirit of the season forced us to recognise him for the sake of the chil- dren, but the pleasure of it was marred by the dread presence of war. There was the fact, too, 'that we were urged to exercise the strictest economy in spending, and the rationing of all the good things that were essential in making the table presentable; and, more than all, the know, ledge that when Icihe season passed we were back again under the old shadow and saw but a gloomy rand dismal outlook in the future. There were not, either, the old family reunions we used to know. The great victory of the Allies has made all so different this year. There is peace on earth, and -a glorious prospect of an enduring peace. Thousands of our lads will be "home for 1 Christmas," either discharged or on leave from military duties, while those who cannot come will, we know, have a safe and pleasant time even: on the shell-shocked fields of France or keeping their peaceful watch on the Rhiiie, or celebra'ung Yuletide in varying forms in still more distant climes in the East. At home, the food question will be easier for housewives to keep Chirietmiaa in more like the old style. Even "coupons" have disappeared, or are disappearing, and there are "extra allowances." The shopkeepers will not be harassed by lighting laws, and will be able once again to show their artistry in window-dressing, which is one of the features of the season's at- tractions. In short, everybody feels "so different" this Christmas, and the rush for seasonable goods, Christmas cards, innumerable presents, and all that which makes people "run to the shops" just before Christmas, has .already commenced. We regret that owing to want of space we cannot this year describe, as we usually do, a tour of the shops in the several towns, but we would refer our readers to our advertising columns. These show that our enterprising shopkeepers are fully alive to the changed feelings of their customers, and have amply prepared stocks to meet the increased business. Customers will have no difficulty in getting their wants satisfied, especially if tliey adopu the advice to shop early and not leJave every- thing to the last minute. There is a truer ring in the old, old wish this year—"A merry Christmas and a happy New Year-and this in all heartiness we extend to our readers.
TO CORRESPONDENTS AGENTS ANO ADVERTISERS
TO CORRESPONDENTS, AGENTS ANO ADVERTISERS. Owing to X'mas falling in the middle of next week, the "Express" will be published early on Tuesday, and will be despatched to our agents by the first trains from Brecon. We have, therefore, to ask our correspondents to let us have as much copy as possible by Saturday, find later news by Monday morning. We are aware that all copy may not be available on the first day, but we must ask that none that is avail- able may be kept back simply because there will be other copy to send a day later. Delay of this kind puts much extra pressure upon our depleted staff and adds to expense. Advertisements only will be received up to 2 o'clock on Monday.—Ed.

Four fellow-members of the Baptist Church acted as bearers. As the mortal remains were carried into the church, the organist, Mr D. Powell, Athrawdy, played the "Dead March."

LLftKCYNIDR BIY. I THE LATE LCE.-CPL. HARRY HARRIS. I The sad news received from the War Office some time ago of the death of Lee.-Cpl. Harry Harris-, 1st Breck- nocks, Mhow, India, ha« now been confirmed in the let- ters received this week from two of hL- Clangnidr com- rades. Pte. David Edwards, writing to his sister, Mrs Davies, Rock Cattage, savs.:—"You will have heard be- fore you get this letter about poor Harry Harris.. He died on the 24th October, and was buried on the 25th. He was taken to the hospital on the 2Lst. Herby Lewis was able to so to his funeral. All the other Llangviiidr boys were in hospital. Poor Harry was made lance- corporal about a month ago, and was working at his trade (carpentering) every day. I am sure his poor father and mother are up-set." Pte. Tom Davies, writ- THE LATE LCE.-CPL. HARRY HARRIS, I ing to his parents, Mr and Mrs Davies, Glaesfaer Farm, says:—"It was very sad about poor Harry, and I feel very sorry for his parents. He was in hospital four days, and during that time he was very ill. I was sorry I could not attend the funeral, as. I came out of hospital it-lie evening he was buried. He was buried respectfully in the cemetery by the chapel minister, and had -several wreaths. Our platoon gave one." Deceased, who passed away peacefully after a severe attack of influenza, was the youngest son of Mr and M'M Samuel Karris, Penheolrhyn. He joined the Urecknocks at the outset of the war, accompanied the first batch that went to Aden, where he took part in an engagement against the Turks, and was then drafted to Mlicw. Suffering from enteric fever a great deal of Ili, time in India, lie was passed in lio,-pital, and through sanatorium treatment he was restored to his u-sual health. He was a young man of humble po-ition, possessing a sweet temper, and was upright in char- acter. He was passionately attached to his home, and was highly esteemed by all who knew him intimately. A joiner by trade, he served his apprenticeship at the firm cf Messr*. Watkins. and Bevan. Llangynidr, and became a most efficient tradesmen. Words cannot ex- press- the severity of the blow to his aged parents, who are now mourning their loss of two sons through the war-the eldest son, Pte. David Harris, of the Aus- tralian Imperial Force, having fallen in action on the Western front in September last. Sincerest sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents and other near re- latives. A memorial service was held at the Congregational Church, Llangynidr last Sunday evening, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Gomer Marris. The following letter was received from one of the officers in Mhow — "Dear Mr and Mrs Harri,s.-lt is with great regret that I write to you on behalf of the officers and men of my company to offer you their sincerest sympathy in the sad loss of your son, Pte. H. Harris, B Co. of this regiment. His death is deeply. felt by us all here, as lie was a most popular I)ov as he was a most popular boy; and it is impossible to praise too highly the cheerful and soldierly way in which h-i- carrted out all his duties. He died in the hospital here, and I can assure you that everything possible was done for his comfort during his illness. He was buried in the cemetery here amongst others from the regi- ment. You will feel his. loss very deeply, but this con- solation can I offer, that he died bravely on service, and that, though far from home, he was among friends till the last.—Yours sincerely, John L. French, Lieut., B Co., 1st Brecknock's. Batt., S.W.B."
Comrades of the Great War I
Comrades of the Great War. I LEST WE FORGET." I The Pomrades" recognise their sericss and grave responsibility in regard to the future, and the necessity for considering the points arising- out of the s-tnation in a broad-minded and unselfish spirit and realise their duty to their country as a whole Their-provisional programme proposed in the in- terest of Discharged Sailors and' Soldiers include, amongst other points, efforts to obtain suitable em- ployment by the Government and private firms, the provision free of cost of best practical substitutes that are available for lost limbs, unemployment benefit on demobilization, adequate pensions (to be excluded from taxation fi-r a period). National insurance for disabled men, and training establishments in every big town. Their organisations has been instrumental in secur- ing the war bonus which have been added to pensions. They are urging that the pensions and allowances granted to Sailors and Soldiers, members of the Mer- cantile Marine, and their women and children shall be the first charge on any indemnity in money which Germany and her partners are conilielle(I to pay, and the punishment of all those who are fotiiii guilty of illtreatnient of prisoners of war. The recognition of the claims of ad men and women, those who have served and suffered, to better housing conditions i< one of their Fourteen Points." One of the most insidious of :111 the traps which has been set for the discharged man is that of exploiting his grievance for political purposes. One of the Asso- ciations which the discharged man has been invited to join has now developed into a Political party, putting forward its own candidates for election and paying their expenses by a levy on membeis. "The Com- rades of the Great War" is not a political organi- sation there is no intention of putting forward Comrades" for Parliament or of paying election expenses by a levy on members. The Comrades do not believe that it is in the best inter, st of discharged men to involve them in party nianiruvres. Their pro- gramme, on its merit", should en: itre the support of all fan' minded citizens.

PRISONERS QF WAR
PRISONERS QF WAR. BRECON "WELCOMES HOME." Although Brecon has not been as enterprising a.s other towns in its. wek-omes to men returning from the forces, some amends have been inade. thanks to the High Sheritt and the Mayor, in the "welcome home" accorded to Brecon boys who have IK en prisoners of war. The bugle band of the Church tads' Br-igad(' meets the returning hero at the station, the Mayor and High Sheriff giving him a hearty handshake, and then a procession is formed and lie i" played home amid-t the cheers of the crowd, t-peechet arid cheers usually winding up the demonstration. On Wednesday night Corpora! John Child." son of Mr and Mrs Childc-, Free Street, had a most enthusiastic reception. He it was who was mourned as dead, for while serving with the S.W.B. (he was formerly in the Bret-knocks) in Mesopotamia he was officially posted a6 killed in May of last year, and a memorial service was held in the Wesleyan Chapel. Eight months lat-er, however, his parents received a letter from him to the effect that he was in hospital and a prisoner in the hands of the Turks. The gallant Borderer, although having undergone much hardship, arrived in Brecon all "mile. and his re-union with his family was a very memorable one. The boys' band is preceded by a ban- ner bearing the motto, "Welcome Home," and no wel- come could have been more whole-hearted than that which young Childs had.—On the following Friday two more lads arrived. The first- was Sgt. P. P. Pritchard, of the Machine Gun Corps, son of Mr and Mrs B. L. Pritchard, Harddfan. He had been a prisoner in Ger- many since the 27th March, and landed at Leith en the previous Tuesday evening. Later at night came Pte. Geo. Smith, son of the late Mr Smith, town porter, Pendre. He bclongde to the Durhams, and had served 3! years in France, having been twice wounded. Upon re- turning from furlough last spring he was taken prison- er. He had a "special" reception, since eome of his enthusiastic friends carried him shoulder high all the way from the railway station to his home in Pendre. On Saturday evening Vivian Williams, of the Buffs, formerly of Lloyds Bank, Brecon, came, and on Mon- day evening Tom Thomas, son of Mr George Thomas, Sifver Street, of the R.W.F., had a triumphal progres-s through the town to his. home in Llanfaes. He had been wounded more than once in France. On Tuesday evening Gu-s« Brooks, son cf Mr and Mrs Brooks, FrE-e Street, arrived. Being a prominent member of the C.L.B., he was met at the station by the company, in charge c-f Rev. Kehle Williams. There were also meet- ing him the Bishop of Swansea, as well as the High Sheriff and the Mayor. There are more prisoner lads to follow, and no matter what the weather or the time of day, the crowd turns up and the drums rattle and the bugler,, blow their favourite tune, "Here we are again, boys." Brecon is certainty beginning to wake up in receivine back her gallant lads. People are saying it is about r time it did. 1 1 1

Women Can Be Too UNSELFISH. rPHEIiE is urgent need for women to think of — themselves more. From a health point of view, it isn't good sense to neglect their own aches and pains whilst mothering everyone else in the home..so many make this one mistake. Backache, pains in the Joins and sides, dizzi- ness and nervousness are early signs of kidney strain, and a woman needs to alter her unselfish ways or serious kidney disease may follow. She can safeguard her health by getting more rest, more sleep, more out-door relaxation. To revive and strengthen the kidneys use Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. This treatment cleanses the urinary system. Tea, coffee, and al- cohol, if too much used, do not help; neither do heavy meals or too much meat. It is easier to prevent than cure dropsy, bladder troubles, rheumatism, and serious kidney com- plaint. Doan's pills have succeeded certainly, and in many advanced cases, but early treatment is always best. Doian's Backache Kidney Pills are obtainable at all dealers, or M 2/9 a bottle direct from Fost-er- McClellan Co., 8, Weils Street, Oxford Street, London, '\V.l.
