BARRY DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION
BARRY DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION. WAR OFFICE APPEAL FOR NURSES. I A meeting of the Executive of the Barry District Nursing Association was held at the Nursing Home, Wood- lands-road, Barry Docks, on Friday evening last. Mr. J. A. Kelly was voted to the chair, and the other mem- bers present were Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Llewellyn, Messrs. A. E. Makepeace, A. C. Waite, F. Gilbert, and John Da vies (the hon. secretary). The Matron (Miss Tyson) reported that since the previous, meeting 1,420 nurse visits had been paid to cases throughout the district, numbering 155. There had been five deaths, four due to cancer ang one to apoplexy. Mrs. Griffiths, Royal Hotel, Cadox- ton, had forwarded a donation of £5 to the funds of the Association; and Mrs. Pearson, who had been treated by the nurses, had contributed X4 4s., and had, in addition, promised a subscrip- tion of XI Is. a year. A letter was received from the Ad- visory Committee for the supply of Nurses, asking the Association whether any trained nurses would be willing to come forward for service in military hospitals in case of national emer- gency. The Secretary said the need was ur- gent, but perhaps a nurse could be spared by a re-arrangement of the staff. The Chairman: I think the nurses are doing a national service at present by looking after the cases at home. It was pointed out that there was a great dearth of nurses, for women were releasing men for service all over the country. Mr. J. R. Llewellyn said in the auxiliary hospitals much of the work was being done by untrained nurses from the Red Cross and St. John. t The Matron (Miss Tyson) felt a nurse could not be spared unless a temporary help was secured. It was decided to try to obtain a tem- porary nurse, and if one could be secured, that one of the trained nurses be allowed to volunteer. This was the principal business.

THE FOOD QUESTION
THE FOOD QUESTION. So much depends upon a nation's food that no apology is necessary for, referring to the subject again; indeed it is a duty to do so, and readers are recommended to study the little book published free at Offer Dept., 46, Hol- born Viaduct, London, entitled "What to Eat and How to Eat" (send a post- card to-day asking for a copy to be sent you free). One of the direct causes of ill-health is indigestion, and this arises most often from eaiting unsuitable diet, amd bolting food without sufficient mastica- ¡ tion. Thus food, instead of being quickly digested and converted into nourishing health-giving blood, be- comes a fermenting mass, giving rise to flatulence and forming poisons. I Headaches, depression, lack of ap- petite, and the torture of dyspepsia are signs that the stomach has lost tone and is being wrongly dieted. Keep your digestion perfect and eat whole- some food, and you will find the way to be well. Sufferers from indigestion re- quire new blood to cure this painful disorder, and by taking Dr. Williams' pink pills, they will satisfy all the needs of the blood, nerves and stomach. These pills sharpen the appetite, brighten the spirits, banish depression and headaches, and establish good health on a secure foundation of rich red blood. Most dealers sell Dr. Williams' pink pills for pale people, but you must ask for Dr. Williams'—so avoiding imita- tions.

MAER HEN GYMRAEG YN r MARWI
MAE'R HEN GYMRAEG YN r MARW! LADY'S LECTURE TO BARRY CYMRODORION. I Barry Cymrodorion Society opened its winter session on Tuesdav, the 17th instant, with a lecture by Miss E. Evans, B.A., of the Training College, Barry. The Preslident (Rev. Howell Davies, B.Sc.), occupied the chair, and referred to the exceptional circum- stances now prevailing in Europe: the difficulties U-t societies like those of the Cyuinodorion have to contend with.! He, however, rejoicedtht the Society was in such a flouritshing condition, l and thanked the ladies, in particular, for their fidelity in these times of stress. Many of the members of the Society' have gone forth to take p; it in the mighty conflict; some have made the great sacrifice: other members were ac- tively engaged in succouring the wounded or in assisting in various ways to heLp their country.. The Society was commencing its third series of lectures since the war began, and a hope wsas expressed thai the next ses- sion would be opened under happier J conditions. Mr. Davies was in his happiest vein in introducing the lec- turer, who, on rising to address the meeting, was received with acclama- tion. The titde of the lecture, "Mae'r hen Gymraag yn marw, A'r Beibly yn ei Haw," is a couplet from a poem by Bell Bowen, tho brilliant young poet from Treorchy, who died full of pro- mise at the early "re of 5, in the year 1903. Whilst visilting Ynysddu, in Monmouthshire, thehioimo of Isl wvn. I one of the greatest poets of Wales, who died in 1878, Ben Bowen's fervent Col-, tic spirit became sad and depressed on seeing the Welsh language losing ground, and it was there he wrote the poem, which describes the position and vocation of Wales amongst the nation's of the world, its religious, mission, the beauty and strength of its language, and, dismayed that such a. fine medium of expression was neglected and forgot- ten, he (concluded with the following lines:— A'i gwefus bur yn welw, A'i threm i'r byd a ddaw, 1 Mae'r hen Gymraeg yn marw A'r Beibl yn ei llaw." If the Culture Epochs Theory be cor- rect, namely, that the individual child develops along the same lines as man- kind, then it is certainly probable that he does so along the line of his nation, and consequently lie must ibenefit from the wealth of literature bequeathed him by his ancestors. The only key that will open the porta-L-s of these treasure houses is that Off the Welsh language, and every Welsh child ought to have an undisputed claim to his birthright. Yet parents culpably neglect to foster the Welsh language in their homes, and by so doing impoverish the minds of their children and the contribution of Wales to mankind. Moreover, the neglect of a language not only affects the literature, but also the religious and moral side of a nation. God has re- vealed a particular phase of His char- acter to every nation, whose duty it is to give expression, to that revelation. Consequently, what a calamity it would be to suppress the smallest off the nations of the world. Every nation has its characteristics, but no nation can exist without its language. Language and religion are so connected that a severance would be fatal. Yet many Welsh people, full of zeal for religion, rear a generation of pagans, inasmuch as their children cannot wor- ship in any language. This deplorable situation is entirely due to the in- dolence and indifference of parents to the claims of their children and their nation, and unless the parents awake to their responsibilities, the language and religion of Wales, which form the basis of Welsh nationalism, will cease to exist, -and ipso factor, the nation it- self. True patriotism commences at home, extends to the parish, the county, finally embraces the whole world. The the country, neighbouring countries, and history and literature of a nation plays an important part in its development, and the history affects the literature, and vice versa. The rich Welsh litera- ture was a closed book to its English historians, and owing to .their unac- quaintance with the vernacular, Welsh history had suffered grievously. The recent Renaissance has to some extent remedied this, but a vast amount of work remains to be done. Here the lecturer reviewed briefly the wealth of Welsh literature, and stated that all whose (privilege it is to teach the child- ren of any nation should be imbued with the literature of that nation, for otherwise they will be incapable of in- terpreting the ,nature ,and the. ideals of its children. In Wales, however, teachers and otherp, aire found who, after a long residence, rejoice in the fact that they know not a word of Welsh nor care anything about its literature. Is it a wonder that the Welsh language is losing ground in r SOTl16 districts? Is it fair that such Conditions as is mentioned above pre- I vails? Is it just? The parents slum- i betr and sleep while thsir children's birthright is filched from them. TIiQ future of a nation depends on the masses and not on the privileged few. That has been true of Wales in thak Ipast; the peasants remained true to their language, their ideals and aspirar- tions, whilst the lords became traitors.. The generation of the "lords" remaiii, to-day, but they are correctly designa- ted by he term ",snobs.'f Barry is for- tunately situated to foster Welsh ideal* and aspirations. Its immediate neigh- bourhood is rich in historical associa- tions, and has been .the home and re- sort of numerous Welsh poets and litterateurs. The lecturer concluded an admirable) (lecture by exhorting the audience and a.ll Wales to rous? itself, to be valiant and worthy of the price- less treasure handed down to them. A very hearty vote of thanks, pro- posed by Mr. Bryn Davies, seconded by the Rev. LleweMvn Williams, was ac- corded to Miss Evans. The next lecture will bel by the Rev. Evan Isaac. Treharris, on "Un o hen Emynwvr Cymru."
TO STOP ANY RHEUMATIC PAINS IN TEN MINUTES
TO STOP ANY RHEUMATIC PAINS IN TEN MINUTES. BY JIM SULLIVAN, Trainer of the London Scottish. Famous Physical Instructor and Ex-Middle- weight Champion explains a permanent cure and tells how he keeps his men free from all Uric Acid Disorders, Backache, Kidney Trouble, etc. H Sweating cures, Turkish baths vapour and hot air baths, etc., always quickly limber stiff muscles and joints by driving acids and all other impurities out of the body. But many readers will say they have no time for expensive baths and spa treatments, so I shall 1 explain a substitute even more effective. You. can obtain at slight cost from any chemist about a. half-pound of the common Reudel Bath Saltrates, a small handful of which dis- solved in a hot bath, will produce medicated and oxy- genated curative water. Bathe in this, and you will at onoe understand just why sufferers travel to tha thermal bath springs famous since Roman days, for the Saltrates contain exactly the same curative constituents found in thet natural spring waters. Reudel baths, like natural thermal baths, do untold good by expanding the blood vessels, relieving con- gestion or high blood pres- sure, and stimulating the flow of a pure, rich blood current which courses through every nook and cranny of the system, flushing out all the dangerous impurities, uric acid toxins and disease germs. This is Nature's own method of treating kidney trouble, bachache, and rheumatic tortures, sciatica, lumbago, etc., but to enjoy a natural cure, no one need go- to the expense of a journey to a spa. The Saltrated baths do more good than a dozen "swats," Turkish baths, patent medicines, ointments, liniments or anything else. In specially severe cases, if you also wish to hasten a permanent cure by following the corresponding internal treatment as adminis- tered at the spas, drink occasionally a level teaspoonful of refined Alkia Saltrates in & tumbler of water. This is a wonderfully rapid solvent and thorough eliminant of uric acid, which even the worst cases of rheu- matism cannot resist.
IJUVENILE CRIME ON THE INCREASE
I JUVENILE CRIME ON THE INCREASE. One of the saddest features of tianes, ds the increase in juvenile crime. Whilst adult crime has very largely diminished during the war, the num- ber of offences committed by boys has multiplied. Whether it is due to the. absence of so many fathers from the homes, and -the consequent lack of parental control, or other influences, it is difficult to say. But a novel sug- gestion has been made by a magistrate. with a view of eSecting much-needed reform. The birch-rod is regarded as. one of the most convincing methods of impressing upon bad boys the folly of wrong-doing, and the suggestion has been made that the birchling of a juve- nile offender by a burly constable should be filmed, and shown at the pic- ture palaces which youngsters frequent. Such a picture, it is thought, might act as a more powerful deterrent than all the magisterial warnings and fines. The youngsters who once saw the scene would think twice before lapsing from the path of rectitude.
