The chairman handed over the certificates.—In a few well-chosen words, on behalf of the Mountain Ash Red Cross students, Nurse Lewis presented Dr. and Mrs. Jones with a beautiful picture, the title of which was "The end of the Skein."—Dr. Jones, in re- sponding, said that words could not express his gratitude to the class for their appreciation of anything he had done to further the work of the Red Cross Society. He and Mrs. Jones would always value the picture, as it would always remind them of the kind thoughts and good wishes of members of his classes. He had always taken great interest in the work-it was work which he loved. Some nurses who had been trained in the Alountain- Ash classes were engaged in military hospitals, while some had taken a further train- ing for regular hospital work. Miss Katie Davies, who is home on leave from her duties in a military hospital in Liverpool, presented Nurse Lewis with a pedestal plant holder-a mark of appreciation from students of the nurs- ing class, of which Nurse Lewis was the teacher.

Aberdare Police Court. Wednesday, May 31st.-Before Messrs. R. A. Griffith (Stipendiary), D. W. Jones, J. H. Powell and 1'. W. Mander. Ejectment.—Mr. W. Thomas applied for an ejectment order against Mrs. Sarah Chew, Dare Villas, widow. Wm. Rees, Bridgend Inn, the owner, said he was anxious to go and liver in the house himself.—The order was granted, ten- ant to leave in 21 days. Drunks.—Wm. Rowlands and Thos. Jones, drunk in Duke Street, Aber- dare, 13s. each. Unlieensed Dogs.—For this offence John Lewis, Hirwain, was fined 7/6; Richard Jenkins, Hirwain, 7/6; David Carter, Hirwain, 7/6. Transfer.—Mr. W. Thomas applied for the transfer of the Red Lion, Aber- dare, from Rees Thomas to Daniel Mor- gan, of the Morning Star.-Granted. Milk Case.—Thomas Widden, Aber- aman, was summoned for selling milk deficient in butter fat to the extent of 5í per cent. Police Super. Rees de- posed to purchasing a pint of milk from defendant in Clarence Terrace, Aber- aman. A portion of it was sent to the public analyst who certified it deficient as stated. Defendant now said that the deficiency must be due to the poor quality hay which the cows fed on. He had been selling milk for the last 22 years, and this was his first offence.— The charge was dismissed on payment of costs-15s. 6d. Water in Milk.-Albert Ward, Sta- tion Road, Hirwain, answered a charge of selling milk containing 10 per cent. of added water. Police Super. Rees bought a pint of milk from defendant, and the analyst certified that it con- tained water as above stated.—Defend- ant said he bought the milk from Mr. David Jones, Nantymoel Farm, and he sold it direct as he got it from the farmer. The Superintendent bought the milk exactly as he had it from the farmer. It was the farmer's wife who served him on the day in question. He had told her about the condition of the milk, and she said that possibly the boy taking water for the calves had thrown some on the milk. Super. Rees re- marked that he had taken a sample of milk from Nantymoel Farm earlier the same day, and it was all right. De- fendant They get milk from their brother's farm, and I buy their milk.- The Bench imposed a fine of £ 3 and costs. Persistant Cruelty.-Itees Rees, 7 Lambert Terrace, Gadlys, was sum- moned by his wife, Winefred Rees, now staying in Herbert Street, Aberdare. Mr. W. Thomas appeared for the wife, who bore marks on her face, and had a bandage over her eye. Winefred E. Rees, in reply to her solicitor, said she had four children. Her husband had treated her badly for some time. They lived at Lambert Terrace, and on Mon- day week he struck her a violent blow in the face until she became uncon- scious. Her sight had become affected through the blow. Her husband was a collier at the Bwllfa, and earned JE4 lls. per week.-Defendant was not present in Court.—The Bench made an order of 25s. per week, the wife to have custody of the children. Damaging a Car.—Henry C. Garrett, a young man, was charged at the in- stance of the Aberdare District Coun- cil with damaging a tramcar to the ex- tent of 2s. Mr. W. R. Morgan, prose- cuting for the Council, said that de- fendant struck a match on the panel of one of the cars, as it passed through Canon Street.—Defendant admitted the offence.-Stipendiary: Why did you do that?—Defendant: I did not have a matchbox.—Stipendiary: You had a trousers and boots on your feet.—Mr. Morgan remarked that a great deal of damage was done to the cars in the course of a year.—Defendant was fined 5s. and costs and 2s. damages—12s. altogether. An Excited Husband. — Richard M. Lock was summoned by his wife, Mir- iam Lock, for persistent cruelty. Mr. W. Thomas, for the wife, said she was really afraid of her husband, and could not live with him any longer. Mrs. Lock said she now lived at No. 40 Glamorgan Street, Aberaman. Her husband lived at 192 Cardiff Road AberamanJ and his earnings were JE2 per week. She had been married to de- fendant 5 years. She was previously married, but had not seen that husband since the South African War. She had not seen him for 10 years when she married her present husband. Lock had a violent temper, and had blacken- ed her eye 3 or 4 times during the last six months. He struck her on May 20th, and she now suffered from an aw- ful black eye, and her back was bruised, defendant having kicked her. He got drunk almost every Saturday.-Defend. ant made a long statement, and accused his wife of laziness.—Stipendiary Why did you give her a horrible black eye like that?—Defendant: I get excited, and then I don't know what 1. am doing. —Stipendiary: Then you better separ- ate. Order of los. a week and costs. Aberaman Girl and Her Employer. Serious Charge Against a Tradesman. I Albert Hodges, greengrocer, etc., 184 Cardiff Road, Aberaman, was J charged with carnally knowing Hettie Turner, knowing her to be under 16 years of age. Mr. A. Prosser (Messrs. Kenshole and Prosser) prosecuted, and Mr. W. Thomas defended.—Mr. Pros- ser said that the girl was now 15 years of age. Hettie Esther Turner, the complain- ant, said she was the daughter of Al- bert Turner, 20 Mount Hill Street, Aberaman. She was 15 years of age last June. She was in service with the prisoner at 184 Cardiff Road, Aber- aman, where he kept a shop, selling greengroceries and sweets. She en- tered his service 12 months last April. She was now in a certain condition, and the prisoner was responsible for it. Hodges was a married man and his wife lived with him. Intimacy first took place about 4 months after she had been in service there. His wife was out at the time. Prisoner's little boy was in the shop at the time. Misconduct was repeated about a month later when the wife was at Aberdare, and the children had gone to bed. Six weeks later, when Mrs. Hodges was away in Caer- philly, misconduct was frequently re- peated, and right down to the present month. She was in the habit of going home to her parents to sleep. She usually went to the shop at 8 a.m. and left for home at 7.30 p.m. On May 17th her mother noticed something and she was taken to Dr. Finney. They afterwards went to prisoner's shop and her mother spoke to him. Cross-examined by Mr. Thomas, wit- ness said that defendant sold papers on Sunday, and there was someone in the shop constantly. There was an old man staying in the house, but he often went out. It was during the evenings that defendant used to molest her. She never told anyone about defendant's s conduct. She had spoken to several boys, but had not been walking out with anybody in particular. Mr. Thomas put in letters written by prosecutrix to a friend, Winnie Griffiths, of Caerphilly, referring to a soldier named Benny Griffiths, with whom she said she was keeping company. Martha A. Turner, mother of the girl, gave evidence of a conversation she had with her daughter a fortnight ago. She then took her to Dr. Finney, who stated that her daughter was in a cer- tain condition. She and her husband then went to see Hodges, and accused him of the offence. He replied: "1: have done nothing." Her daughter then asked him: vvhat did you do to me last Sunday?" He made no reply. P.C. Clarkson was there at the time, and said "Have you anything to say to that? Defendant hung his head and replied, "No, nothing." In reply to Mr. Thomas, witness said that defendant also said: "I know nothing about it." Albert Turner, father, said he was an engine driver. He was told about this affair on May 17th by his wife, and went with his wife to see prisoner. He told prisoner: My girl is in .trouble, and accuses you of it." He replied: I know nothing about it." Witness further corroborated his wife's state- ment.—P.C. Clarkson said that on May 17th he accompanied the last witness to see the prisoner. He spoke of the conversation which the parents had with Hodges. — Mrs. Susan Hayter, Mount Hill Street, confirmed the evi- dence of Mrs. Turner with regard to the interview witti Hodges.—Sergt. Grif- fiths said that he arrested prisoner, and on reading the warrant to him he said, I know nothing at all about her, only she was in my employment." The Stipendiary said that the Bench were satisfied that no jury would con- vict on such evidence, and prisoner would be discharged. Threats.—Mary Milton, Aberaman, had summoned Eleanor Elias for using threats towards her. Mr. W. Thomas and Mr. W. T. Howell were the solici- tors in the case. Mr. Howell asked for an adjournment for a week, and this was granted. j
LOCAL MEMS. j BY MEMO. Aberdare became famous last week as the venue of the trial of Capt. White, son of the late Sir George White. Few cases have created such a wide sensa- tion. Captain White had moved among doubtful friends for many years —Larkin, Sir Roger Casement, Con- nolly and other men who have since be- come notorious. By the way, Capt. White's name has cropped up more; than once in the evidence given before the Commission on the Irish Rebellion. Canvassing has developed into a fine art. No election is complete without the canvasser, and he has now arrived on the scene in connection with Tri- bunals, whose duty it is to decide who can and who can not be spared for the Army. Members of the Aberdare Tri- bunal complained last week that much of their time is being wasted by visits from canvassers, and the chairman has found it necessary to issue a warning to all and sundry not to speak to mem- bers of the Tribunal concerning cases which aro coming up before the meet- ings. The plea put forward by a few appli- cants in some Tribunals is that they are entitled to exemption on the ground that they have a large number of chil- dren. One such example occurred in Mountain Ash on Tuesday. Before de- ciding such cases the Tribunal ought really to consult the wives of such ap- plicants and ascertain whether they would not be glad to get rid of their j husbands for a few years and thus ob- tain a holiday at home. Last Monday a very large number of men left Aberdare by the 10.30 and 12.50 T.V.R. trains for Cardiff, to join various regiments. The bulk of them were men in Groups 36-41, married men between the ages of 30 and 35. Animated scenes were witnessed at the station, and a hearty send-off was given all the men.
