Then a further eon-tract to replace some glass for JB3 was executed, making a total of £ 7. The defendant, however, con- tended that the tenant was liable to pay the amount, but his client woukl tell them he never saw the tenant and that the order ca,me irom the defendant. Answering Mr. Andrews, complainant said he asked Mrs. Mort, the tenant, for the money. She toid him it wasn't her I part to pay, and he then went to Mrs. I' Reee. Mr. Andrews: For nearlv two years you didn't ask her for the money?—Com- plainant: I thought I would give her time. <0 Had she asked for it?—No. sir. Mrs. A. W. Rees denied that she had given plaintiff instructions to do the work spoken of. By an arangement with her tenant, &he had nothing to do with the painting. )1r. Harris mentioned the des'rability of the tenant, who was now ill, being pre- sent, and Mr. Ruegg said he considered the case was rather serious, for one or the other seemed trying to conceal something. There would be an adjournment to the next court. BARNETT V. AUSTIN AND BRAYLEY. In re Sol. Barnett, Dynevor-place, Swansea, v. Peter Austin, Maeeteg, and the same plaintiff v. Mrs. Brayley, Mumbles, Mr. Edward Harris applied for the appointment of Mr. Trevor Evans, Salubrious-place, accountant, as receiver of the profits from defendant's properties. The applications were both granted. TUESDAY. Before Mr Ruegg, K.C. SEQUEL TO AN AUDIT. "Why won't you pay these costs." asked Mr. L. Richards of Picton Jones, Picton- terrace. Jones recently sued the Swansea Brickworks Company, having audited its accounts, and a verdict was given for the company, who had paid £ 15 15s. into court. The company's costs had been taxed at JE25, which Jones (the present defendant) now refused to pay. In reply to Mr. Rich- ards' question, defendant said his solicitor had taken the JE15 15s. in liquidation of his own costs, and he still owed him £ 7. \[r Richards: You are paid £ 2 2s. a day, aren't you?—Defendant: When I get work. Mr. Richards You told the judge you were a busy man !-Defendant: I was at that time. —He offered 21 a month, which Mr. Rich- ards characterised as ridiculous.—An order of 30s. a month was made. POUND A WEEK AND A MONOCLE. The monocle and smart Norfolk Bait a defendant wore were impressive. "What are you?" asked his Honour.—"A gardener, sir, earning about a pound a week," replied defendant, who, with his brother was sued by the Swansea Finance Company for £ 6. "And what are you do- ing?" asked his Honour of the brother who replied that he was a canvasser for the Na- tional Telephone Company, but was dis- missed for "a very curious rsason," but for no fault of his.—Two shillings a month was the order made. AN AMUSING INCIDENT. Mr. David Seline appeared in a judgment summons case for a creditor, and Be had also got consent to appear for debtor. Hie Honour: How will you appear in the dual capacity ? Are you going to give evidence on behalf of the plaintiff, and then on behalf of the debtor? (Laughter. )-M.r. Seline: A la Gilbert and Sullivan. (Renewed laugh- ter.)
