By Mr Charles: Defendant, when his attention was called to the time, said that the meat had been sold earlier in the day, but that the women did not then take the meat with them. Wit- ness added that he replied that it was the sale to the girl he referred to. Emlyn Davies corroborated. Defendant was called, and said he simply gave a joint to a woman who had ordered it earlier in the day. He saw no little girl in the shop. A little girl was employed on the premises, but he could not say whether the little girl came to the shop at all that night. Cross-examined by Mr Griffiths, wit- ness positively denied that he served any little girl. Mary Ann Evans, widow, said she ordered meat at the defendant's shop between 3 and 4 p.m. She selected a leg of miitton, and it was left in the shop until she called back.

Howell defended. Wm. James said that on June 17 he visited his fowl run and found a fowl with its leg broken. A similar thing happened the three following mornings. The fourth morning he saw footprints crossing from his garden to defend- ants' garden. Witness then gave in- formation to the police. He valued the pullets at os. each. Mrs. James, prosecutor's wife, stated that she saw through the window de- fendant going from the run into his own garden. It was Sunday morning. By Mr W. T. Howell: She was quite certain as to defendant's identity. It was not true that she was on bad terms with all her neighbours. P.C. Rowlands testified that he traced the footsteps from the run in question to the garden next door. It was the print of a man's foot. Defendant, who said he was an oper- ator at an Abercynon Cinema, said that he returned home that night at one o'clock and went to bed forthwith. He was not in the garden that night. He knew nothing whatever of the fowls. By the Stipendiary: When the police officer mentioned to him that he was charged with the offence he did not go back and face his accuser. He had to go at once to his duties at Abercynon. Herbert Thatcher, manager of the Empire, Abercynon, stated that he stayed with the Hooker family, and heard no cackling or any noise what- ever on the night in question. Mr Howells remarked that he was inclined to believe that the fowls had been mutilated by the prosecutors themselves. Maggie Hooker, defendant's sister, was quite certain that he was in bed at the time it was alleged he was out. The Bench believed the evidence given for the prosecution, and said that defendant did not act like an innocent man when charged with that diabolical act. He would be fined 20s. and costs and he could consider himself lucky to get off so lightly.
Damage to a Fence. Wm. John James, Thomas Price, and Herbert Bradshaw were summoned for damaging a fence, the property of John Walters, farmer. Mr Griffith Llewelyn appeared to prosecute.

Defendants were ordered to pay 2s. 6d. each and Is. damages.

The caarge against Mrs. Adams was dismissed, and John Christopher was hound over to keep the peace tor six months.

Complainant said her baby was born in July last year, Lewis had paid her regularly ever since the birth of the child. He gave her 5s. or 6s. every week. Clerk: Why do you take these pro- ceedings now ? Complainant So that I may have a claim on him. Clerk: What is he? Complainant: He is a costermonger, and sells various things from a cart. Clerk: He has been very generous.. Mary Ann Hankin, complainant's mother, said that defendant had ad- mitted paternity to her. He was a married man. The Bench made an order of 5s. a week until the child attained 14 years of age.
Shebeening at Cwmbach. Cripple Woman Fined LIO. "We have no hesitation that the charge has been proved," said the Deputy Stipendiary at the conclusion of a case in which Ann Davies, a widow, aged 71 years, was convicted of conducting a shebeen at 4, Duffryn-row, Cwmbach, by selling intoxicating drink without a license. The defendant is an elderly woman and a cripple, and had to he accommodated with a seat. Mr. William Thomas defended. P.C. Bevan deposed that on Sunday morning, June 21st, he kept observa- tion on defendant's house in company with P.S. Griffiths, P.C. Evans, and P.C. Chugg. About 6.30 a.m. he saw Gomer Davise, defendant's son, leave the house and go along the Canal Bank and Duffryn liow. He appeared to he looking about. At 7 a.m. six men congregated on the Canal Bank, which is about 20 yards from the house. The men conversed for some time and two of them went to look at the window. Some 25 minutes after- wards Gomer Davies left the house and had a conversation with the man, and then returned to the house. At 7.30 a.m. two of the men went to the shop and shortly afterwards left, wiping their mouths and carrying something bulky under their coats. Half an hour latet- two other men went in and stayed for five minutes. Witness further de- posed to seeing a number of other men and women enter the premises and leave with bottles protruding from their pockets. The police entered defend- ant's premises shortly afterwards with a warrant, and found ar half gallon jar of beer, 4 bottles of beer full of beer, and five other bottles containing the remains of beer. They also found a pint and a half bottle empty, with the smell of gin, two small bottles marked Irish whisky, two jugs containing the remains of beer, and one pot with the remains of beer. When spoken to de- fendant said: "I don't sell beer. Here's a breakfast." Witness told her she would be reported for selling intoxicating drink without a licence. Mr Thomas: You found no liquor there at all:" Witness: No, sir. Mr. Thomas: The house is on the corner of the street, and it is a place where people congregate? Witness: I do not deny it. I have only been in Cwmbach three and a half months. In further cross-examination witness said defendant carried on a small shop, I' and sold mineral waters. The total cost of the beer found was not more than 3s. P.S. Griffiths gave corroborative evi- dence, and said that when he read the warrant the defendant said: "Here's a breakfast," in Welsh, and tainted away. Cross-examined, P.S. Griffiths said they were keeping observation from a house within 80 yards of defendant's premises, l'hey did not intercept any of the men leaving the shop, as they wanted to leave their place of conceal- ment without being observed. Some of the men went back twice. P.C. Evans said that while the other officers were engaged in searching the house, Gomer Davies exclaimed that he would see them in hell before he had more drink in for them." Ann Davies, the defendant, said she kept a small shop, and many people entered on Sunday and made purchases. She purchased the half-a-gallon jar of beer on Saturday night as she was ex- pecting a visit from her two sons, who resided at Deri. Her sons came home every montli to give her some money. The other bottles of beer were pur- chased by her son, Gomer, for himself. She had been ill for some time, and she purchased the liquor for herself. She did not take a penny that Sunday for drink. Gomer Davies, son of the last wit- ness, stated that he was employed as a timberman's assistant, and worked fair- ly regujarly. The beer found m the house was purchased on Saturday even- ing, as they expected a visit from his two brothers. He paid two shillings for the beer, but drank two bottles on Saturday night and two bottles on Sun- day morning. He did not get up on Sunday morning until 7.45. Closely questioned by the Deputy Stipendiary the witness denied that anyone had entered the shop that morn- ing before Mrs. John and Peter Jen- kins, they two people found in the shop, when the police entered. He admitted saying he would have no more beer in for them, but he meant for his brothers. This concluded the case, and the I Deputy Stipendiary imposed a fine of £10 and costs.
The Silliest Girl he'd Met." An Amusing Case. Esther Fox was charged with unlaw- fully professing to tell fortunes. Gertie May Reynolds, a servant at the Bird-in-Hand, stated that the pris- oner came to the public-house last Thursday, June 25th. She asked her if she would like her fortune told. She then took her into a private room. Prisoner asked for a silk handkerchief and a hair of her head. She gave her a hair and prisoner then asked to see her hand. She told her "her planet was very high, that she was an un- lucky girl and if she would eive her her gold chain the bad luck would go away from her." She gave her a half sovereign, and when she demanded it back again she gave her two two- shilling pieces back. Prisoner admitted telling fortunes, but denied she was stealing the money. By the Deputy Stipendiary: How old are you?" Prosecutrix: "21, sir." Deputy Stipendiary: And did you be- lieve all this rot? I Deputy oupendiary: You are one of the silliest girls I've ever met, and you deserve to lose your chain and money. Stand down. P.C. Bennett arrested the prisoner in a van in High Street, Aberdare.
