TARPORLEY. DEATH OF MR. T. REECE, JUN.—After a lengthy illness Mr. T. Reece, son of Mr. Thomas Reece, of the firm of Messrs. Reece Bros., died on Tuesday from phthisis, aged 25. The deceased, who at one time was a pupil teacher at the National Schools and latterly a teacher in a Yorkshire school, was highly respected. LOCAL CRICKETER'S WBDDINGL—Mr. W. H. Wright, who is well known to local cricketers and footballers, having played for many years with Tarporley C.C. and Tarporley St. Helens F.C., and last season with Tilstone C.C., on Wednesday married Miss H. Sinclair, of Bun- bury. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. F. Clifton Smith. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. T. Sinclair. The bridesmaids were her two sisters, Miss Annie Sinclair, and Miss Elizabeth Sinclair, and Miss F. Wright. The best men were Mr. George Wright (brother) and Mr. A. Billington. SERIOUS CHAAGB AGAINST A FATHER.—On Monday, at the offices of Mr. T. Cawley, Clerk to the Justices. Arthur Harding alias Lowe, of Market-court, Tarporley, labourer, was charged before Messrs. Roger Bate and John Pickering, with wilfully neglecting his children, Walter (aged 6), Lucy (5), Frank (2), and Sarah (3 months). The proceedings were taken at the instance of Robert Nicol, an officer of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, who, with Police-Sergeant Bourne and P.C. Harrison visited Harding's house on the 8th instant. The evidence of the Inspector, Dr. G. H. Ayres and the sergeant was a story of filth, neglect, and poverty. The boy Walter was slightly emaciated, and he had a large abscess at the back of his neck which was receiving no attention. His body, head, and clothing were covered with vermin, and he was without a shirt. The children, Lucy and Frank, were fairly nourished, but were covered with vermin, and their underclothing was very dirty. The baby was greatly emaciated, and in a precarious condition, due to improper food. She was being fed from a bottle which contained some uid, apparently sour milk. The glass tube inside the bottle was corroded with sour milk. The rooms both upstairs and down were in a filthy and disorderly state. In the sleeping room there was one bedstead, the covering of which was sufficient, but filthy from want of washing and was very verminous. On the ftoor in the corner of the room was a straw mattress; the covering consisted of old articles of wearing apparel, all in a filthy and verminous condition. The floor of the room had not been washed for months. The only food in the house was a few crusta lof bread and a small quantity of butter. The prisoner's wife said she had no money to buy food with. There was no fuel to make a fire. The inspector gave her some money to buy bread and milk, and he afterwards saw the prisoner, who said he had later given his wife a shilling. The prisoner was apprehended on Sunday on a warrant by the sergeant, who said that he had known the prisoner three years, and that he was addicted to drink, and was often lounging about the street, although there was work for those inclined to work.—The prisoner was remanded until next Monday, with a view to his being further remanded to the Oakmere Petty Sessions. The children were ordered to be taken to the Tarvin Workhouse, and a sum- mons was issued against the mother to appear at the Petty Sessions.
