Mr. Morgan was a member of the Parish Council, and had been nearly 40 years on the line. At Pontardawe, on Fridav, David Harris, driver, Plasmarl, was charged with cruelty to a horse. Mr. Viner Leader defended. P.C. Higgingon said he saw defendant driving the horse in Clydach. It looked thin, weak and exhausted. He asked de- fendant why he worked the horse on that condition. He admitted the animal was thin, bnt he had no other. Mr. Leeder said the horse had now been destroyed. IXefemiant was fined 15s. inclusive. At Pontardawe, on Friday, Dl. Thomas, Llachardfach, Llangyfelach, was charged with keeping and using a carriage without a license. Excise Officer Patrick Levland said tha-t on September 10th he found the vehicle in ase.

At Pontardawe, on Friday. Mary Thomas, Oki Star I nn, Cwmgor^e, was summoned fcr permitting drunkenness. P.C. Mason said he found a man named Wm. Scrivens who lodged there,, drunk. When woken to by witness, Scrivens said: "I'm all right." The landlady said in answer to witness that, he had had no drink in her house. He had come in from Pontardawe in that state. Lafter he visited the house and told the landlady he had n summons against her. She replied that she had asked Sem ens to go to bed, but he had refused, but went into the backkitchen. The Bench dismissed the case. Scrivens, however, for being drunk, was fined 10s. and costs, the Chairman remark- ing that he had nearly got the landlady into trouble, and the best thing he could would be to leave the House. Mr. Viner Leeder defended. It sneaks well for the popularity cf "Poole's Royal Myriora-ma" that, in its second we^k, and in a town better supp'sl with high-class entertainment than most twice its size, it ran command the kind of crowded houses that gathered in the Alb-rf Hall, on Monday afternoon and evening. But "Poole's" ;= an honoured name in Swan- svnonvm for refined amusement and pleasing instruction. The pictures are mar veilouslv faithful, and the "effects" as near perfection as can be hoped for. NoUiblv was this so ;n the thunderstorm in the .\lpE, which ha.s to be pcn and heard to be be- lieved! The "eventograph" is equally effec- tive in the realisation of the "Falls of the Clyde," you nee-i scarcely any effort to imagine that the stage is filled with rdl water! The living pictures include the launch of the lifeboat (tnii--h admired], Home for the Holidays (more so). The assi ting variety company, each artiste at the top of the ladder in their particular lines, include T^TRR Graham's performing birds, The AVJO- <i > Quartette. Kitty Woodford's circ", Stewart, protean artist, Doretfca., acrnl-- marvel, Leonard an:! Mac finde- scriba^. *s), and Kliie Floreni, comed'etine. Twy lily all this we-ck, except Friday.
