Here is Foot Comfort ell øt!Jtd'!l is warn at any shoe This is a broad claim to make, but the Scholl Foot-Eazer" eases feet, provides absolute means of foot comfort. When the arch of the foot is not properly supported-and the modern shoe does not give this required support-the feet tire and ache and pain and become feverish and then there is a twitching and a seeming strain on the limbs. and frequently a feeling of fatigue over the whole body. The arch ot the foot, where the body's weight is carried, needs a rest. The Scholl "Foot-Eazer" supports the arch or instep and takes away all muscular strain, equalizing the weight and bearing. Made of German Silver springs, leather covered. Self-adjusting to any foot. Can be changed from one pair of shoes to another and can be worn with comfort by anyone.

Thomas, Aber- dare, appeared for the wife, and Mr. Evans, Pontypridd, defended. Com- plainant said she now lived in 28 Gla- morgan Street, Aberaman, with her brother. Her husband was a fisher- man, and lived at Lower Town, Fish- guard. They had been married 18 years. When she married him he was a widower with seven children. She had one child by defendant. The dis- pute between her and the defendant arose out of a will made by him, on the Wednesday prior to February 7th (the date he left her). After the will had been made defendant's brother (Thomas Owen) and two other relatives came to the house and asked her what business she had to force her husband to make a will, and did she want him to die quick. Her husband was then in bed, and they went upstairs and took him with them, saying that witness would poison him in order to get the money. A few days lat-er the brother and others came in a trap and took away a lot of furniture. Her husband then stayed with his daughter, Mrs. Harper. Other portions of the furniture were sold for L7. She now resided with her brother at Aberaman.—Cross-examined, witness admitted that she had been fined E2, and had subsequently been im- prisoned three months for ill-treating the defendant's children by his first wife.

They took her father with them that da-.v.-Cross-examine(i, wit- ness said she had never seen her mother under the influence of drink.—The de- fendant was next called, and said he was 62 years of age, and was a fisher- man. He now lived with his daughter in Fishguard. He had lived in the same house for 18 years. His present wife was addicted to drink, and when he was ill a special nurse attended to him because of the lack of attention on the part of his wife. On Friday, Feb. 6th, witness was in bed, and his wife brought some rum and milk to him. He drank it. She afterwards threw a lamp at his head and cut it severely. He had a son in the Monmouth Police who had helped to keep him. Alice Owen, daughter of defendant by the first wife, corroborated her father's evi- dence as to being injured by a lamp.

Defendant was repre- sented by" Mr AV. Thomas, Aberdare. Complainant, who was represented by Mr Prosser, stated that defendant lived next door to her. Some time ago de- I fendant's wife, who was in a delicate condition, came into her house for pro- I tection. Since that time he had called ther horrible names and threatened to 'I rip her guts out. She was frightened of her life and had had to obtain police protection. On May 18th last he called her a vile name. David Daniel Wil- liams, husband of complainant, stated that he heard the bad language used to his wife.—David Williams, son of com- plainant, also heard the language used. II --The defendant, giving evidence on his own behalf, stated that on the day in question he had no quarrel with Mrs. AVilliams and had no words at all with her.—By Mr Prosser: He admitted chasing her, and she jumped out of the window.

Griffiths replied, It's all right, I am well in with Nuttycombe." Witness searched the men, and on Griffiths he found a bottle of cider. He found nothing on Thomas.

Abercynon Queries. Is the Liberal League still in exis- tence at Abercynon? Even Mr. Master- man's second defeat has created no stir whatever in Abercynon Liberals. Is there any truth in the rumour that the local annual sports will be held under the auspices of the Ambulance Brigade this year and not the Brass Band? Who broke the style in Lovers' Lane? What is the reason that the Welsh Baptists chose Penarth for this. year's outing contrary to all the other denom- inations? Was the choice made to suit the children or the young men of the church ? Should not the Council move in the matter of preventing the nuisance caused by tipping refuse against houses at Abercynon? It is done at the rear of several dwellings here. Do the high windows of a certain chapel afford its cleaner:; a "grand stand" on Gccasions. Who can give the name of that re- spectable young man seen strolling to and fro past one of our hotels at 11.15, four nights out of seven each week?

Tom and Willie Johnson. VICTORIA HALL. The chief at- traction at the Victoria this week is Mair Morgans, a winning soprano sing- er. At each house she has a splendid reception. This is her return engage- ment, and she .proves herself still art adept in purveying mirth and melody. In the film programme we have the star picture, "Aquatic Elephants," illus- trating fully how elephants like their bath, and "Railroader's Warning," a Western drama, both are stirring and interesting. Comedy is well to the fore in "Sammy comes into Money," "Cal- ino as Water Diviner," and "King Goutran the First." Fine selections by Mr. Austin Jones' orchestra makes the programme an interesting one.

Annie Bryans summoned her husband, William Iirv. ans, with persistant cruelty.—Mr T. W.

Her husband was en- gaged at the Glancynon Foundry, and earned about £ 1 lis. per week. They had two children. Her husband ill- treated her every Saturday night. In October last defendant attacked her, and Mrs. Lewis, a neighbour, came to the rescue. He had been abusing her every Saturday night since, and during the week would not speak to her.—De- fendant said that he gave his wife £ 1 9s. net every week.—Mrs. Thomas, Ynyslwyd Street, an erstwhile neigh- bour, said that she saw the man beat his wife shamefully. On one occasion Mrs. Bryans ran into witness's house for protection from her husband.—P.C. Owen Thomas said he was called to defendant's house one night. Defend- ant was armed with a poker, and assumed a threatening attitude.—Mr. Griffiths said that the woman was ab- solutely weakened in mind and body through her husband's conduct. An order of 12s. a week was granted. Press v. Deputy Stipendiary. At the close of the adult cases a Juvenile Court was held, when boys under 14 were charged with various offences. The public wore asked to leave as usual, but Mr Griffith (who now sat alone) asked the Press to leave the Court also. Two or three Pressmen pointed out that this was unusual, and that they were entitled to remain under the provisions of the Act. Mr Tom Elias, the clerk, was not present, and his son, who acted in his father's place, supported the Deputy Stipendiary; and asked the reporters to obey Mr Griffith. The reporters then left under protest. A local solicitor was then consulted and the statute was looked up. It was seen immediately that the Press had a per- fect right to remain in Court. The Deputy Stipendiary, who was accompan- ied by Supt. Rees, was then interviewed, and the statute was read out to him. He acknowledged at once that he was wrong, and apologised for his mistake, but expressed the hope that the cases tried in the Juvenile Court would not be reported at too great a length.
