John Breeze, an employee of W. Griffiths and Co., Tramway Contractors, was summoned for obstructing High Street, Aberdare. P.C. Francombe said that defendant had a horse and cart right across the road, and held a motor cycle up for several minutes. A boy employed with Breeze attempted to move the horse, but defendant stopped him, adding, "Let him wait." Witness went on to defendant, who said that the road was not open for traffic. Super. Rees deposed that defendant had previously exceeded his duty, and when spoken to had become abusive. A fine of 5s. and costs was imposed. Nuisance. Thomas Davies, New Street, Godre- aman, committing a nuisance in Globe Row, Cwmaman, 5s. and costs.—P.C. Price proved. A Reckless Driver. Tobias Simmonds, driver, Aberdare, was summoned for being drunk in charge of a horse and car, and with driving furiously. Mr. W. Thomas, Aberdare, defended. P.C. Chugg deposed that he saw de- fendant driving down furiously through Cemetery Road Trecynon. Witness shouted, but defendant took no notice. There was a number of people about at the time. Near the top gate of the Park the defendant ran into a heap of stones, and all the children who were in the car were thrown out. The defend- ant himself was injured. Witness told him he was under the influence of drink, and defendant admitted that he had had a glass or two. Mr. W. Thomas said that defendant was in the employ of Mrs. Pleace. He had been driving for 18 years, and there was nothing against him. Defendant's own children had been injured, and he had been punished in that way. The Stipendiary told defendant he was not fit to drive a governess car. He ought to have a wheel-barrow. (Laugh- ter.) He would have to pay 20s. and costs for being drunk in charge of a horse, and 5s. for furious driving. Only One Light. P.C. Kirby, Aberdare, preferred a charge of driving a charabanc without the prescribed number of lights, against Adrian Rees.—Fined 5s. and costs. Butcher's Dog Licence. Wm. Jas. Williams, butcher, Aber- cynon, was summoned at the instance of P.S. Clynch in respect of a dog licence. Defendant had said he in- tended applying for an exemption, but he did not appear this -day.-Ordered to pay costs. Cigarettes in Mountain Ash Mine. Richard Hughes.

The cigarettes mentioned were found on defendant. Wm. Morgan, manager, proved the rules. Ordered to pay L3 and costs. The Pwll Als incident. j John Jones, Cwmdare, represented by Mr. W. Thomas, was summoned for I cruelty to dogs. P.C. Bendall said lie received inform- ation that dogs' barks were heard down Pwll Als shaft. He went there, and-j efforts were made by various means to destroy them. On the following day they could still be heard. At 7 p.m. that evening information reached him that a dog had been got up. He then saw the dog, which was in a very weak and exhausted state. Stipendiary: What age was it ?-— About 6 weeks or 2 months. Witness went on to say that two of the dogs which were in the bag were dead. One of them had two of his hind legs partly eaten. On June 23rd he saw Jones, who said he had destroyed the dogs the previous Thursday by throwing them down a pit shaft. Wit- ness told him that one of the dogs was still alive, and that he (witness) would have to report the case. Defendant replied: "I am very sorry. I knew there was plenty of water at the bot- tom. It was my intention to drown them. By Mr. Thomas: The puppies were more than a fortnight old. The bag caught in a beam in the shaft. & The Stipendiary said there was no cruel intention in this case. Inspector Barrack (R.S.P.C.A.) said that reasonable care had not been exer- cised. Mr. W. Thomas said that defendant had a great deal to do with animals, and he was most kind to them. He had testimonials from the Vicar of St. Fagan's (who was present) and others. Stipendiary: He ought to let himself down first to see whether there was sufficient water there. If this offence had been done deliberately I should ) have fined him R25. But there was no intention. He will have to pay the costs (6s. 6d.). County School Boys v. Robertstown Boys. Evan Evans, cattle dealer, Aberdare summoned Wm. n. Shott, John M. Jones, W. T. Davies, and David J. Davies, four youths, for doing wilful a near Robertstown. Mi\ W. Thomas defended. Evans said the ground had been used cricket clubs, but he now paid a rent tor it to the County Council, and had sheep and other animals grazing there. The.. boys and others trespassed con- tinually, and did a lot of damage. Ten locks had been broken quite recently. Shott (father of one of the defend- ants) said it was a recreation ground and boys from the Intermediate School were constantly playing there. Evans They are entitled to be there and Mr. Cox gets a key. Stipendiary: What about your grass: They damage grass just like these boys. It is very difficult to keep these out when others are allowed to go in. Mr. Thomas pointed out that the de- fendants jumped over fences, whereas L ^ount?' School boys went in through the gate and did not touch the cattle Stipendiary: All these boys (the de- fendants) ought to be in the County School, then they could play there. I'll inflict a small fine of 5s. In future it will be 20s. Shott: The field is nearer Roberts- town than the County School. Abercwmboi Cases., Hannah Woosnam, Abergwmboi, summoned Margaret Ann Llewelyn, John Street, Abercwmboi, for indecent language. The former said that she met defendant in the street and was called a bad name. There had been a quarrel between the two sisters. "When I was called that I felt very simple," added complainant. Defendant denied using the word. Mrs. Mary Davies gave evidence for the prosecution, and a fine of 5s. and costs was imposed. Hannah Woosnam was next sum- moned by a little girl named Annie N. Woods, who said she had been to a sing- ing practice, and when she came out several little girls "pitched into" her. The defendant came on and helped them by pulling her hair and smacking her in the face. There was no witness for complain- ant, and the case was dismissed. Abercwmboi Man and Wife. Albert Lock, platelayer, Abercwmboi, was summoned by his wife, Sarah Jane Lock, for whom Mr. W. Thomas ap- peared, for persistent cruelty, and she asked for a separation order. Mr. Thomas said the wife had sum- moned her husband seven years ago, but withdraw it on defendant promis- ing to reform. Recently he had abused his wife very badly, and had struck her a violent blow. He had kept his wages and wanted his wife, who had private means, to give him money. They had been married 14 years, and there were five children. Complainant was now staying in Cromer Street. Defendant was addicted to drink and had abused his wife. Defendant: It's nothing but a pack of lies. She has left me and the chil- dren. The Stipendiary asked him what offer he was prepared to make, and he said he was willing to pay 16s. a week pro- vided she took the children. The Bench said this was too good an offer, and made an order of 14s. a week and costs. Hirwain Constable Assaulted. John Sandy, Hirwain, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly and for assaulting the police.-P.C. Mor- gans said that at 7.4.5 on Monday even- ing he saw defendant drunk in Hir- wain. He spoke to him and defendant became verv abusive and struck him in the mouth. Fined 10s. and costs for drunkenness, and 40s. for the assault. Struggle on an Embankment.

Chairman Angry. ROWDY MEETING AT MOUNTAIN ASH. On Tuesday last the half-yearly meet- ing of the Deep Dutfryn Lodge was held at the Workmen's Institute, Air Kit-hard Kees in the chair, supported by the vice-chairman, Mr Tom Gioson, and Ür Wit haUl Lamburn, the lodge secre- tary. A report of the conference at 1 ardiff was given by Air David -Lewis. The auditors' report was given by Messrs W. Edwards and T. Pomeroy. and both complimented the secretary and treasurer on the way they had kept the books. A resolution was moved by Mr W. Jenkins asking the lodgAto reduce the number of committee-men from 25 to 17, so as to curtail expenses. At present committee fees alone run to over every year. After a lengthy discussion the motion was carried. Mr James Jones moved that the attendance fee be sixpence per meeting, and not one shilling as in the past, and no payment for special meetings. This was seconded by Mr James Jarvis. At this point the meetiijg became rowdy. The chairman, when appealing for order, was asked who was ruling the meeting, he or the audience? The chair- man replied, "Come and have the chair, if you like.' Peace was restored eventually. A report of the situation in respect of the non-unionist question was given by Councillor W. Lamburn, who. to- gether with Mr D. Lewis, appealed to the men who were working in poor places to see that they would get the minimum wage, and if not to report at once to the committee-men or the checkweigher. The meeting lasted three hours.
MEN WHO ARE "RUN DOWN." Crow Fit Under the Tonic-Treatment of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Are you one of the many men who complain of being "run down"? Are your muscles flabby and your nerves "on edge" Do you feel greatly depressed, and are you restless I at nights and unre- freshed by sleep? Do you find yourself exhausted and trembling after any mental or physical exertion—with a dull pain in your back? If so, vou are feeling the protest of nerves that are weak and in distress, i Cllr nerves are not receiving full nourishment Iw- cause your blood is too poor, too im- pure, to perform its duty. You need Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, because they create new strong blood that imparts "tone" to weak nerves. Remember this important fact, and begin taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to-day for delay may result in Nervous Breakdown. Here, is an example:—Mr. Arthur Edwards, who resides at 73 Barker Lane, Brampton, Chesterfield, states "About two years ago I became gen- erally run down. 1 was nervous, and as for appetite, I did not care whether I ate or not. I began taking tonics, which I was told would put new life into me, but felt as limp as- a rag. Then I began to have severe headaches and pain in the back. Nerves all to Pieces. Soon my nerves went to pieces. I slept 6adly and had distressing dreams. Then a rash like eczema ap- peared on my chest, which I was told came from poorness of blood. I kept on taking medicines, and used oint- ments, but got worse. I had been unable to do any work for four months, when a friend advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After a few doses of these Pills I was able to eat regular meals. In time the headaches ceased, and my sleep was restful. Steadily my muscles got firm, I put on weight, and lost all back- ache and nervousness. Then I was able to work well again, fit and full of life and vigour, and have had no return of weakness or nervousness since Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured me."

Aberaman Bathing Fatality. INQUEST AND INTERMENT. An inquest was held by Mr R. J. Rhys at Aberaman on Friday concerning the death of Mathew Giles (16), who was drowned in the river Cynon on Wed- nesday evening. The evidence showed that the deceased was bathing in the river, and was seen to take a dive, but he failed to reappear. A man, named Henry Cook. dived into the river sever- al times, and eventually found the body embedded in the mud. The jury returned a verdict of "Acci- dental death," and complimented Cook upon nis plUCKy efforts. The interment took place on Satur- day last at the Aberdare Cemetery.

Aberdare Licensed Victuallers at Sea. The annual outing of the above asso- ciation took place in gloriously fine weather last Thursday. The arrange- ments were thoroughly well carried out, and reflects great credit on the Secre- tary, Mr. L. 1. Deere, and all who assisted in making the affair such a great success. The party, numbering close upon 80, entrained at Aberdare T.V.R. Station, and stopped at Cardiff (just for fun) and boarded a Campbell White Funnel and proceeded to Weston. A splendid dinner was provided at Glass's Restaurant, and was voted by all tip-top.. Mr. Joe Brittain (Allsopps Ltd.) presided, and was supported by Mr. Danger (Worthington's. Ltd.), Mr. Harold Knight (Thomas and Evans), Mr Leyshon Henry, Mr. L. 1. Deere, Mr. D. W. Howell (Windsor Office, Sec. Mountain Ash Licensed Victuallers' Association), Mr. John Rees, and Old Haggar. Mr. Harold Knight proposed the loyal toast. The Chairman expressed his pleasure on being present at the 31st annual outing, and glad to render any service to the association. He hoped the asso- ciation would continue to thrive, and congratulated them on the number present. He was particularly pleased to see his old friends Mr. Dan Thomas and Mr. Haggar present. Mr. Dan Davies, in proposing "The success of the Aberdare L.V. Associ- ation," said they were in a better posi- tion than ever. It was their business to see that they did not go back from that position. He was glad to see so many ladies present. Mr. John Rees, responding, said that that occasion was the 26th outing he had attended. He hoped that they would all spend a happy time. Mr. D. W. Howell j proposed "The Visitors." It afforded him great pleasure to be present, and especially to hear that the association was in a flourishing condition. It was that spirit of rallying round that made their strength. Mr. Haggar, responding, said he felt more like saying "Next picture now on," instead of making a speech. Looking round that room, everyone must agree with him that it was a star picture, and as had just been, said the finest gathering of the. association for many years. Aberdare seemed to em- ploy the best methods to help each other. He had travelled hither and thither like a Gork on the water till he bumped against Aberdare, and he felt proud of it. May they all live to see each other for many years under the same lucky star. Mr. Danger proposed "The Ladies." It spoke very well of their association and what the ladies must think of them to see so many of them present. Mr. John W. Hek suitably responded. Mr. Dan Thomas proposed "The Chairman." Although he was now away from the town, he felt it would have been cowardly of him if he had failed to attend and rally round his old friends. Mr. Loyshon Henry seconded the pro- position, and Mr. Brittain shortly re- sponded. Chips About Trips. Dangerous ground Danger to get on about the Doctor. W hat a scream Hack Jok and the hard boiled egg took the place of the sugar trick. What a s(h)ell! Who were "the specials" in a first- class coach? The Tories and the publicans all in one train, and the axles didn't get hot. The Penrhiwceiber Chamh.T of Trade cooled them. Tom Lee joined "the specials." and didn't he look daggers at the swanker who also joined at Queen Street! The invitation to "the specials" to join the motor frriu came unstuck. Hardly Cheddar. Unlucky number 13—never cater for 13, Jack. "You pays your money and you has your choice." Never pay he- forehand. Only one grumble at the dinner. Who was it?

Who was it held a hit of sugar in front of the fallen 'oss to coax him up A carrot might have done it. s' Who nassed the rote of censure on Jdhn Rees? Old Haggar said he couldn't speech. He's been kissing the blarney stone. "Sh," when you call at the shop, don't say Until. A Penrhiwceiber lady paddled in a pond on the sands. Some rude fellow remarked she had a corn on her off little toe. Two ladies occupied 3 seats on the motor charabanc, and the conductor didn't notice it. Don't speak now.
A Generous Act. An illustration of the good will and generous enthusiasm in the sacred cause of charity was given last week at Poole's Picture Palace. Aberaman. Mrs. Giles, a poor woman with nine young children, had the misfortune to lose her eldest son by a sad drowning accident. This youth had only lately become a wage earner, and was the principal support of his mother and the family, consequently his Joss nji s severely felt. With that spontaneity that always characterises the members of the profession, Mr. 'George Parkei (Messrs. Poole's manager) and Mr. Gascovne (of the Three Gascoynes), im- mediately put a scheme into operation to assist Mrs. Gilrts. A subscription list was opened, headed by Mr. J. H Poole, and the audience were invited to subscribe their mites by means of the plate, with the consequence that over £12 has been collected and handed over to Mrs. Gi1. This will help very materially to tide over the immediate difficulties which the sad accident ha* created.
Minimum Wage Agent. Mr. Stonelake Appointed for Bwllfa. His many friends will be pleased to hear of Councillor Edmund Stonelake's success at a poll for a Minimum Wage Agent to the workmen employed at the Bwllia Nos. 1, 2 and 3 and Windber Collieries, Cwmdare. To have achieved this success against such an array of candidates, many of whom had much local influence, speaks highly of his sterling qualitios-espeeially when it is considered that he has only recently come to live in this part of the district. NNI, also congratulate the workmen upon making what we firmly believe to be a very wise choice, because in Mr. Stonelake they will have an agent who i not only a practical coal miner, but in addition one of influence with the management, accomplished in educa- tion. and experienced in debate. With- out these qualifications the agency would only have been a dead letter, and the district constantly kept in a tur- moil of discontent. But with the bit- ter experience of the past few years, v." can only hope t)¡at the wiser caunsjel which dominated in the recent election to .secure Mr. Stonelake's appointment will do much to foster a feeling of con- tentment. and prosperity, and good- will in eaeh of these important collieries,
Cricket. 1111 Saturday the Aberdare Church- men entertained Mountain Ash at the New Athletic Grounds in a friendly fix- ture. Several of the first team were given a rest, and places found for two new men and a few reserves. Mount were also handicapped in having to make the journey minus a few players, two Darians filling in the vacancies. Going in first the visitors were unable to make much of a stand against the deadly bowling of Nash and George, the former topping the season's aver- ages by taking three .wickets for one run. Tom George accounted for five wickets at a cost of three runs apiece. The home batsmen very soon passed the Mount score of 49. thanks to a fine dis- play by ash, who hit up 20 before be- ing dismissed by a particularly good ball from Chowles. Chowles found the wicket to his liking, taking seven wickets for 28 runs. Scores: ABERDARE CHURCH. Tom George, b. QJiowles 5 W. Parker, st. Barlow, b. Ellery 6 Bob Xash. b. Chowles 20 B. Gittins, b.

The Reflector. BY HYPNOS." Were you not surprised, miss, to find it was 10.20 p.m. by the Intermediate Clock when you were going homer You looked surprised, anyway. So, those granite blocks outside the Park View amused you? Why don't you go in for a box of building bloc ks You can get them from a Id upwards. You were rather in a hurry, Miss carrying that bottle of milk and a soother. I didn't see the baby, though. I sometimes leave a parcel behind. What made you forget the kid? Women are becoming suffragettes and men are becoming women. A visit t. the Cwmdare teas would prove that. A few of the bhoys looked fine i. pinafores. One young man thought to have half- an-hour's nap before going to the tea, 111 order to be fresh, as he thought, be- cause his Mary Ann was there. He woke up at 12 midnight. An excellent place for a park is the field where the members of the Sunday Schools assembled on Monday. With a little outlay it could be made quit* pretty. An excellent view of the valley is obtained at this part. The village constable was quite a children's hero on Tea Day. Of shining buttons they were not afraid, In fact he proved a draw; Hexl a winning smile for both lad and maid, And he held swpets in his paw.

Letters to the Editor. ABERCYNON AND SPIRITISM. TO MR. R. T. EVANS. Sir,-I beg to thank you for your long and mystified letter, which is really s. surrounded^ with mist that it requires a seance" to interpret the meeting thereof. You are aiming at something nobody knows what, and I question whether you know yourself. I do noi intend dealing with the passing wind, but simply to thank yon for your kind offer to forward me a copy of the me- morable Swainson's book, which is as vague as your letters. At the same time I wish to state that I have had that book in my possession for a long time. After reading it over and over again I am left in a cloud, in exactly the sani» manner as your epistles leave Your readers. As to Goethe, you attempt to mislead readers by stating that this persoa called for more light" as he w- passing away. What he said on hi* deathbed was "Light, oh light," and not More light, more light," as you stated. You say that you have had no inter- course with the spirits." I quite under- stand that, otherwise you would have known better about the subject you are trying to deal with. Again, you state that I referred to Sir William Crooks. I have done nothing of the kind, I simply stated" W. Crookes and others." Is it from your ignorance that you continue to mis- quote what is placed before you ? But inasmuch as you cannot go further with your subject you must fill up your epistle with something, whether it be right or wrong. I find that I was correct in my statement that you did not know the difference between "spiritist" and "spiritualism." I gathered that from your first letter. Now, that you are against the wall, please pause, and analyse your statements before attempt- ing to analyse anyone else's. As there is as much difference between U spiritist" and spiritualism bs there is between day and night, mv ad- ytce to you is to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the matter before you try to lead the public with your vague criticisms. By now I see that you hav* others to deal with. I shall leave You alone until your knowledge on tke sub- ject under discussion matures, and don't forget that, "A single grain oi solid fact is worth ten tons of theory-" —Yours, etc., SEEKER FOR TRUTH.

Williams said that on Monday last a little girl came to his house and told him there was a man drunk on a path overlooking the T.V.R. Station, and near Dr. Morris' house. Im- mediately afterwards the female defend- ant came to the house and said that her husband was drunk. He went with her, and she asked him not to do any- thing to her husband.

Witness managed to get free from her grasp, and she fell down the embankment. He struggled with defendant and they both fell down, and while on the ground defendant kicked him on the side of the face. The woman came up and hit witness on the face and pulled at the collar of his coat. She assisted her husband to get up, and they had another struggle. Witness drew his staff and struck the man on the shoulder. Defendant again at- tempted to strike him, and they all three fell down. After a severe strug- gle the female defendant wrenched the staff from him, and a young man came from the crowd and took it from her. She rushed at him again, and this time tore his whistle and chain off, and pulled at the collar of his coat. They slipped down the embankment, and de- fendant kicked him on the body.
