Williams, Landore. Is one of the candi dates, contains an extremely able leader on the election. The Nonconformists are, It seems, pretty well organized, and unless their chunces will be shattered by the "in dependent" candidates, their candidates are confident of winning all along the line. The Seren makes a strong appeal to nil sections of Nonconformists to be faithful, united and true to one another. The Baner publishes extracts from Pro fessor Hugh Williams' notorious pam phlet on "Baptism," nnd whllo express ing the strongest disapproval of some of Its opinions, throws open Its columns to Its discussion. Seren Cymru, on the other hand, though It udmlts that tne profess or's knowledge of church history is ex cellent, fulls to understand why Mr. Will lams does not carry his opinion?-to their logical conclusion and proclaim himself on the side of the baptism which, he ad mits, Is alone mentioned expressly In the New Testament. The South Wales cor respondent of the Uaner refers in Indig nant terms to the harshness of the sen tence passed on Peggy Lewis. WELSH NEWS NOTES. Steps aro being tuken to erect a monu ment In memory of Llewelyn, the last in dependent prince of Wules. The name of the heroic Llewelyn recalls to mind the days of Uwalia's freedom and Independ ence before the brutal onslaught of the tribes who made up what Is now known as England proper. England and Wales were at that time nations with separate princes, but "might prevailed against right" and now after an Interval of 500 years the descendants of tho English metropolis combine with the sons of Wales In paying tribute to the last of the Welsh princes. Lord Bute, Lord Ken yon and other nobilities of Eng lish extraction, are taking a lead ing Interest In the question both by their presence at the meetings and by their contributions. The overdraft of tho Pontypridd eis teddfod committee at the bank now stands at 2i.o, and the pavilion has yet to be dis posed of. The guarantors stand some chance, therefore, of having a little of their money returned. ', Two Catholla priests in Wales are able to preach Welsh.

Scrofula The Worst Case the Doc tors Ever Saw Hood's Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured "C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. : "Bear Sirs: I wish to testify to the great Value of Hood's Sarsaparilla. For some time I had been troubled with scrofula, which early last winter assumed a very bad form. Sores Appeared on My Face and hands and gradually Increased ln uumber until they readied to my shoulder. The doctors said It was tho worst caso of scrofula they ever saw and also went so fur as to say It was In curable. I tried ointments and oilier remedies but to no avail. A friend recommended Hood's Hood's Cures Sarsaparilla, and although I was completely dis couraged, as a last chance I resolved to give it a trial. After taklnn one bottle I noticed the sores had commenced to heal. After the sixth bottle They Were All Healed.
