Willey, it was resolved that a hearty vote of thanks be accorded to those children who had taken part. Bro. Hood complimented the Super- intendent of the Temple, Bro.

At Penarth Police Court on Monday a German sailor named Jack Pip was charged on remand with stealing two gold rings, four handkerchiefs, and some collars, from the premises of Mary Norman, of 7, Thompson- street, on the 8th Feb.—Mary Norman, wife of William Normaii, said the prisoner had been boarding with them. Ho was with her from Christmas, and stayed until the first week in Feb- ruary, when he left on the 8th, about ten o'clock in the morning. She did not know he was going, as he did not tell her, but after he was gone she searched and found he had taken his clothes, and also some collars and cuffs from her kitchen drawer, amongst them being some lfo. 20 size. Her daughter also missed two gold rings.—Cross- examined, Mrs. Norman said prisoner's collars were similar to those taken by prisoner, and she could not absolutely swear to the collars produced being the ones lost.- Police-constable William Phillips said that on Wednesday, the 15th inst., about two p.m., he re- ceived the prisoner into custody at the Central Police-station, Cardiff. He charged him with stealing two gold rings, six white collars and fronts, and four pocket handkerchiefs, also one sovereign, the property of Mrs. and Annie Norman. -In answer to the charge, prisoner said Miss Norman gave him the sovereign, as he had acted as a runner for three weeks, and received no pay. When he had the money he went to Cardiff and spent it. All the other things in his bag, includ- ing, the collars, were his own. He went to prisoner's lodgings, at the Milton Hotel, Roath, and searched the prisoner's bag, where he found the collars produced. On being cautioned prisoner said I took away the same number of collars as I took there, but they may have been changed in the washing."—He found nothing of the rings or the handkerchiefs.—Miss Annie Norman said on the 6th she gave defendant a sovereign to go and pay Mrs. Cousin of whom she had borrowed it on the Saturday.—The prisoner was lodging at their house, and her mother had told him to do what he could as he had said he could do a lot of things. He was not a servant, and he had not received any pay.-Prisoner denied the charges, and the bench in dismissing the charge, said he had had a narrow escape of imprisonment. Me would have to be more careful in future, and of course would have to refund the sovereiga which had been entrusted to him. — CONVERSAZIONE AT-BARRY DOCK.
