WORDS OF WISDOM Nothing is too small to do well. A lazy man is in everybody's way. Jealousy knows no sense of justice. Warm hearts do not grow in hothouses. I The trickster is always proud of his tact. Kindness is the very soul of a gentleman. He who believes nothing achieves nothing. Gilding the whistle will not raise the steam. Good manners are made up of petty sacrifices. The real strength of a man is in his character. A sunny temper gilds the edges of life's black- est cloud. Meddle with no man's person, but spare no man's sin. 1 Narrow mindedness in living and in dealing is a failure. A well-regulated home is a millennium on a small scale. I Experience is a good teacher, but charges like a specialist. If you want to keep your good looks, keep your good nature. Genius begins great works; labour alone finishes them. I Flattery is praise insincerely given for an in- terested purpose. Big undertakings are the fruit of small under- takings well done. Many a rich man would exchange his fortune for a good night's rest. He who only knows his own side of the case knows but little of that. Laws may not make a man good, but they may keep him from being bad. Borrowed brains have a way of balking when you drive them in public. If you want to succeed you must put your best effort into every undertaking. A man must get right down to his work, in order to get up in the world. I He never reaped comfort in his adversity, that sowed it not in his prosperity. It is easy to be brave when you know the I enemy has only blank cartridges. There is nothing like choosing the proper time for proffering a request to anyone. Dissatisfaction comes from the knowledge that we are not putting our best foot foremost. Commocpl««e minds usually condemn what is beyond the lcwn of fchonr understanding. The greatest reputation one can have is that of absolute truthfulness and gentlemanly con- duct. Physical beauty and moral ctefects never go very well together. The one will always stultify I the other. Habit is a cable. We weave a thread of it each day, and it becomes so strong we cannot break it. I Life is made up of sorrowful trials and crosses -let the crosses be "love," they will help to I soften the trials. True politeness is perfect ease and freedom. It simply consists in treating others just as you love to be treated yourself. No one can go on working for ever. Intellec- tual work, more even than manual work, re- quires periods of absolute rest. Many people take no care of their money till <hey have come nearly to the end of it, and | others do the same with their time. I Pride may sometimes be a useful springboard to the aspiring soul, but it is much more fre- quently a destructive stumbling-block. Each man has to seek out his own special apti- tude for a higher life in the midst of the humble and inevitable reality of daily existence. It is concentration that counts. The Same of a. candle applied direct is more uncomfortable than the diffused heat of a blast furnace. Life in all its various phases is made up of re- ceiving and bestowing, and he who fancies he 2an do without either loses more than half of life's power and happiness. A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered. Carve your name on hearts and not on marble. The spirit of liberty is not merely, as multi- tudes imagine, a jealousy of our own particular rights, but a respect for the rights of others, and I an unwillingness that any man, whether high I or low, should be wronged and trampled under foot. There's a great difference betwoon" win. ning money and "making" it; a great differ- ence between getting it out of another man's pocket into ours, or filling both. Collectiii^ money is by no means tho same thing as making It.-RuSKIN. Had I a careful and pleasant companion that should shew me my angry face in a glass I should not at all take it ill. To behold a. man's self, so unnaturally disguised and disordered, will conduce not a little to the impeachment of anger.—PLUTAHCH. f
THE WOMANLY WOMAW. I The girl of to-day—the woman of the near! future-has already begun to shew whether she will develop into the cold, selfish, indifferent woman of the world, or whether she will strive to belong to the army of true, tender-hearted, womanly women, WHO for ages past have nobly and bravely performed their share of life's work. Somehow or other, each girl seems to think that if there is brave and noble work to be done it will not fall to her lot, but to some other more favoured by fortune. This is not so. However humble the life may be, it can still be noble; however unimportant the work may appear, it can still be bravely performed; and however un- a,ppreciative and unconscious the world may seem of yourself, the record of it all is being written day by day.
THE SECRET OF HAPPINESS. I have lived, said Dr. Clarke, to know that the great secret of human happiness is this—never suffer your energies to stagnate. The old adage of Too many irons in the fire" conveys an abominable falsehood; you cannot have too I, many poker, tongs, and all-keep them all going.
SUCCESS AND LUCK. rvfuch less of success in life is in reality de- pendent upon accident, or what ir called luck, than is commonly supposed. Far more depends upon the objects which a man proposes to him- eelf; what attainments he aspires to; what is the circle which bounds his vision and thoughts; what he chooses, not to be educated for, but to educate himself for; whether he looks to the end and aim of the whole of life, or only to the pre- I sent day or hour; whether he listens to the voice of indolence or vulgar pleasure, or to the stirring voice in his own soul, urging his am I, bition on- to laudable objects.
LEADERSHIP. I It is the personal that interests mankind, that fres their imagination, and wins their hearts. A cause is a great attraction, and fit only for students; embodied in a party, it stirs men to action; but place at the head of a party a lealer who can inspire enthusiasm, he commands the world.—LORD BEACONSFIELD.
CONCERNING TRUTH. Truth, says Sir Oliver Lodge, in "Life and Matter," cannot but be the breath of the nostrils, of every genuine scientific man; but his ideas of truth should be large enough to take into account possibilities far beyond anything of which he is at present sure, and he should be careful to be undogmatic and docile in regions of which he at present has not the key.
FAME. A piece of wood burns because it has the matter ior burning within it. A man comes to be famous because he has the matter for fame within him. To seek for, or hunt after fame, is a vain endeavour. By clever management and various artificial means, a man may, indeed, succeed in creating for himself a sort of name. But, if he lacks real inward value, all his management comes to nought, and will scarcely outlive the day.
WHAT TO DO AND NOT TO DO. Tfie strained effort to do too much is one cause of the large amount of slipshod, inefficient work that all deplore, and yet accept. No one can give of his best until he has learnt what to lay aside as well as what to do. Others fail to give their best by attempting to do what is beyond them. They might have succeeded well, and -ione the world good service in one direction, but. scorning this, they are doing poor work, which neither benefits others, nor reflects honour I fipon therriselve's, in some other line. Thus, a I fir.:t-rate builder who is needed in the com- munity, is sacrificed to make a third-rate archi. to; t. who is comparatively valueless. Men who might- have made their mark as mechanics be- come inferior business men, or others who have a talent for commercial pursuits spoil- theix »alue bv rushinsr into orofessions or politics.

I AMERICAN HUMOR WOMA14 v. MAN. Man in his highest attainments is the plum pudding of life, but then woman is the brandy ) tauce, without which the pudding is spoilt. I Man may fondly imagine himself to be the lynamo or the arc light, but woman is the golden sunset over the eternal hills. Man (drat him!) is a singleton, a sneak lead and a renig, but woman is the ace, king, queen, jack, and ten of trumps. Man is the narration, tho statement of facts, the explanation, but woman is the sparkling climax of the story. Man can imagine no softer, lovelier fabric than the velvet of a woman's cheek. He can imagine no warmer, rarer colour than the ruby of her lips. He can imagine no jewel one-half as radiant as the lustre of her eye. He can imagine nothing 80 gentle and tender as the pressure of her hand. He can imagine nothing so mystical, so allur ing, as the dimple in her chin. The sky has not the blue of her eye. The sea has not the depth of her glance. And the mountains do not compel such awe as when she looks over the distance with that inscrutable glance of attunement with the in- finite. She is the sum total. She is the last word. She is the final analysis. She is the absolute. She is the supreme. Yes. She is it. And thus from .a chastened and a contrite heart do we make this public confession, partly with the help and partly at the dictation of one of the fairest of her sex, and humbly do we pray to all and sundry that we may be forgiven.—New York Evening Sun.
QUITE PROFICIENT. Sammy broke suddenly into the parlour one day, and came upon his Aunt Margaret, sitting on Mr. Brown's knee. The surprised couple hastened to pull wool over the youngster's eyes. We are rehearsing for a little play, Sammy," explained Aunt Margaret. Yes, Samuel," added Mr. Brown, with a touch of sentiment in his voice, I am now hold- ing the queen." You must be good at it," answered Sammy, as he backed out of the room; "I heard Uncle Jack say that you held four queens last night.— Lippincott's.
MODERN SAWS. Theory is a vine from which facts are gathered Charity with a string to it uncovers a multi- tude of sins. The last turn of the worm is apt to be on the angler's hook. If a woman refuses to tell her age give her time-for time will tell. There is no fool like the one with a bald pate End moth-eaten whiskers. All the world's a stage—and all the women tnaist on having speaking parts. It's a shame that len are not as smart at forty-five as they the ght they were at twenty- 5ve. A girl's dearest girl friend is apt to be one she has known less than two weeks. It sometimes happens that a woman never for- gives a man for letting her marry him. Don't expect to meet with success; you must get a hustle on yourself and try to overtake it. The festive hobo toils not, neither does he ipin; yet Solomon in all his glory was not lrrayed like one of these. We often hear of a young man who is said to kave a bright future before him—just as if he Bould possibly have it anywhere else. -C hie ago Daily Newt.
QUAKER REFLECTIONS. Soda water will generally make a girl froth at the mouth The dreamer who a up in the clouds doesn't %Jways live high. The life line in the hand is. worth two wrinkles III the face. Some people never look up to others for fear Df being looked down upon. A man can't be expected to win in a walk until he gets the run of things. Some people only put their best foot forward to tread on other people's toes. "All the world's a stage," and the average man wants to be the whole show. Even the girl who was bred in old Kentucky may find that her cake is all dough. Americans care almost as much for their suc- cess as titled foreigners do for their ruins.— Philadelphia Record.
GLOBE SIGHTS. What fool things will stick in your mind! Never tell a funny story you.can't finish in a minute. There are so many toes around to step on, that a man who is talking must think fast. Sometimes a social gathering is a failure be- cause the one the others wanted to talk about is there. One mistake many of us make is to imagine that because a woman is fond of reading it is a sign she is intelligent. It is almost as long between pay days for a man as it is for a woman between the monthly instal- ments of a continued story. Time flies so fast that about fifteen minutes after the world discovers a man is a comer, the I discovery is made that he is a Has-Been. It is very unfortunate, but when a man has quail or terrapin at his home, the neighbours don't know it. as they know it if he has fried onions. R One of the great tasks in a man's life is to have to lay down his paper and talk to the young man who is waiting for his daughter to get ready to go out with him.

AFRAID OF HIS WIFE. AN AMUSING LICENSING CASE. THE MAGISTRATES DISAGREE. A licensing case, which afforded much amuse- ment, was heard at the Carnarvon Borough Police Court, on Monday, before Richard Thomas, Esq. (chairman), and other magis- trates. W. Ramsden Smith, licensee of the Palace Vaults, was summoned for per- mitting drunkenness on the premises in the 21st of November. Mr J. T. Roberts prosecuted on behalf of the police, and Mr iNee appeared for the defendant. The police case was that tPolice-sergt. Rich- ards and P.C. J. O. Thomas 37, saw a man named Richard Evans coming out of the Palace Vaults drunk, and afterwards proceeding arm- in-arm with a companion up the street. A few hours later the defendant was found by the police lying in a state of stupor on the floor of his own house. The officers called the lioen- see's attention to the man as he was going up the street, and asked him if that was the way in which he turned out his customers. The licensee replied "I am trying my best to know these Welsh chaps." He also explained that he had been occupied in the cellar that morn- ing, and that his wife attended to the bar. Jane Evans, wife of Richard Evans, said that on the day in question she went in quest of her husband, and finding him drunk she drove him home before her "like a child" (laughter). She also beat him in the house and deprived him of food for three days because he was drunk i(laughter). Richard Evans, who lives at 64, South Pen- 'rallt, the man fined for drunkenness, said that, on the day in question he had a pint of beer, and no more, at the Pailace Vaults. With the beer he had some bread and a portion of a tin of salmon, and this, together with smoking an old pipe, made him quite sick. Mr J. R. Prichard Are you afraid of your wife when you are in drink? j The witness So y" would be, sir I (laughter) j I have had many blows from strong men, but t never such a blow as my wife can deliver. She has got such a hard muscle, you know (laugh- ter). Mr Nee, for the defence, submitted that the man was sober when he entered the house, and there was no evidence that he was supplied with more than one pint of beer. I Mr Smith, the licensee, who said that before coming to Carnarvon he Ihad conducted the I Castle Hotel, Preston, said that .Evans was per- fectly sober when he entered! the house, and his wife only supplied him with a pint of beer. The officers never intimated to him that he would be summoned. He told the officers that in Lancashire licensees considered it no harm to allow a person to remain for a time on the premises if he was approaching drunken- ness, but not under the influence of drink. Mrs Smith, the licensee's wife, said that Evans was only supplied with a pint of beer. Edward Jones, one of the several men who were in the house with Evans, said that Mrs Smith had repeatedly refused to serve Evans after the first pint. John PritchaTd, Mountain-street, another of the men present, gave corroborative evidence, and added that one pint of beer was enough to turn Evans' head. After a prolonged hearing the Bench failed to agree, being equally divided, and conse- quently no decision was -given. The following,magistraties were for convict- ing Messrs J. R. Pritchard, J. R. Hughes, Edward Hughes, and J. P. Gregory. Against. Messrs. Richard Thomas (chairman), W. Hamer, Hugh Jones, and Dr Griffith.

A WK LFH FELLOWSHIP. Dr Etnrvn Jones, Manchester, movei that a fellowpbip be offered anmallv for the pormotion of research in the Welsh language, literature, and history. Professor Anwyl seconding, expressed bia convicnon that any appeal- to the We'sh peop'e for funds for this object would be readily re- sporded to. 4&M Mr Austin Jenkins, Cardiff, moved as an "mer dment thnt It i& desira' le that such a fellowship be offered, and that the standing executive committee be requested to report on I the financial aspect." Professor J. Morris Jores, Bangor, while I agreeing to the proposal, said that there was I really a more pressing need, viz., a fund for the publication of works in Welsh research that had already been produced by the Uni- versity. Professor Lewis Jones, Bangor, said it was s'nce Welsh had been made a subject of ex- amination for the B.A. degree that the real academical study of Welsh had commenced. J'r Emrys Jones withdrew his motion in favour of Mr Jenkins s emeurmect, which was thereupon adopted.

ARVON MONTHLY MEETING. The 'Rev Ellia Jami's Jones, M.A., chairman of the Arvon Monthly Meeting, presided at the new Tabernacle, Bangor, on Monday over largely attended gatherirgs of delegatas. Votes of condolence were passed with the families of the late Mr Richard Oavies, Princ pal John Price, Bangor, and Mr Richard Lloyd, of Llandegai, one of the Connexional deacons who died a few days egi at the age of 92. and addresses were delivered with regard to each of them. Alafon delivered an impressive address to the newly appointed deacons. Mr Menander Jones, Nan tile, questioned the Tabernacle deacons on the position of the church, and very satisfactory replies were given. Mr Joh8 Griffiths gave an interesting review of the rise and progress of the new Tabernacle movement. When the Monthly Meeting last met &t the (old) Tabarnacle, in January, 1903, the church hod collected a bniliicg fund amountirg to JE4060. Of this, JB1069 was spent in the erection of a manse, and JE665 was paid to Lord Penrhyn for the site of the new Tabern- acle. The foundation-stone of the r ew building was laid by Mrs Davies, Trebortb, in October, 1903. In that yeir a sum of P,1016 was colleo ted towards the building fund 8lond, in addition to t384 for other needs of the church. In 1904, 1905, and 1906 (up to November 2Hh) sums of B721, £850, and JE492 respectively were collected towards the building fund, making a total, with the £4060 already in hand, of £ 7;20. The total amount collected for all purposes during the years 1903 4 5 was £ 3 <21, or JEi074 per annum. The new Tøbern,\c'e cost £\0,511, or, with the site, £11.176, of which £6,50 has been paid, leaving a debt of JE5126 The number of church members is 431, children 147, Sunday School 463. The Rev D. O'Brien Owen and Mr David Jones, both of Carnarvon, were selected co- chairmen of the Monthly Meeting for the ensu- ing year. In the evenirg, the Rev Fvan Jones (late of Moriab, Carnarvon) preecbed to a large con greg,tion in the new Tabernacle, and services were also held on Tuerdty.
TRAWSFYNYDD NEW SCHOOL. APPEAL T3 NONCONFORMISTS. Oh Saturday, a new Council School, erected At a cost of nearly JE3000, was o; ened at raws fynydd, Alerioceth. 1 he contract was let to Messrs vvj]]iflm8 and Fvane, Dolgellev, and the building is constructed on modern lines. In the morning the children marched in procession throngh the village carrying banners. Subse- quently they sat down to tea, while representa- tives of the County Hducation Committee, the local Education Committee, and others were entertained to luncheon. The opening ceremony was performed by Mrs Jarrett, Glasfryn, acd Mr J. Jones, Pen- oros, Abercele, presided at the crowded publio meeting, which was held in the school. Following some general remarks by Mr T. Darlington, a speech was given by Alderman Haydn Joies, the Merioneth Education Com- mitte's hen. secretary. He said that the old British School whose place had now teen taken by the new Council School was opened in 1869 at a cost of iCGQ2, which was subscribed volun- tarily except JE218 in grants, and it was main- tained voluntarily up to 1909, when the man agers wisely handed it over to the County Edu- cation Committee (applause). He believed that the National Fchoo s in Merioneth would find that it would have teen wiser for them to have done the same. When the time for bargaining came again the terms would, be fancied, be le^s to tneir taste. He had just received a letter from the Board of Education stating that they cooairier d tbat the Ynys Tomos Nat ooal School, situate some thr^e miles from the vil- lage. was unnecessary (cheers), and that it was to be removed from the list of those :n receipt of annnal grants (cbeer«). Mr Jones then alluded to the revolt school, I now recognised as a Council School, at Ynys Tomos, and urged the Nonconformists of 'I raws- fynydd village to support the new school in the way the Ynys Tomos Nonconformists had sup- ported the new t chool. Half of the E2800 which the schoo' they were opening that day had cost would be borne by the county, and the remainder by the parish of Irawsfynydd. In his opinion it was real economy to have excellent buildings. The tinkering policy of the old School Boards was fa'se economy, apart from the fact that it was but right and proper that healthy and con- vanient buildings should ba provided for the children who bad to spend so much of their time there. He olosed with a stirring appeal to Nonconformist parents. If there were some who persisted in sendirg their children to the Net onal School in the village, be thought it would be better for them to go over to the Church neok and crop (applause and laughter). Dr John Jores, chairman of the Merioneth County Council, said the school reflected credit on the county, the parish, and the architect, Mr Howard Jones. This was the third school erected by the Mericneth Education Committee, and Ve was sure that the inhabitants of this beautiful and romantic spot would make proper use of it. The day was not far distant when i schools such as they were opening that day I, j would be erected in every village and hamlet in the county. Mr J. Rhydwen Parry, Festiniog, said that, despite reports to the contrary, the plans of the i>ew buildings as submitted to the board of Education were approved in their entirety, and carried out with the utmost exactness. He deprecated the action of N onconformist parents in sending their children to the National School, The latter wa>, compared to the new school, an unsightly and insanitary ruin (laughter and j applause). I h Mr E. D. Jone?, headmaster of Barmouth I County Fchool; Mr W. fwen, chairman of the District Education Committee; Alderman John j Parry, chairman of the Merioreth Education Committee; and the Rev R. Jones, Coedpoeth, also spoke.

NATIONAL WORK AND WAGES. FALL DUMNQ TuRY REGIME. In the Houpe of Commons on Tuesday, Mr Bonar Law ir quired what was the aggre- gate fell in the amount- p-id in weekly wages since the 1st May, 190" in the cases reported to the Hoard of Trade and regularly published by the Department. Mr Lloyd George prefacing his reply by the statement that the pariods selected by the hon member was arbitrarily selected, replied that from May, 1903, to the <sni of 1901, a period of trsde depre-sion, the average pe centage of un- employment of members of trades un oni making returns w»s 5 8 During the firttte^ months of 1^05 it bad fallen to 3.9. During the months of 1^05 it had fallen to 3.9. During the tne five years 18S8 to 1S03, mostly a period of active trlde, the percentage was 3.3 Since Jnne, 1903, the mean percentage of unemploy- ment in Germany, according to the statement of the German Labour Depi tm- rt, was 1.7. Mr bonar taw inquired whether since the publication of the Fiscal B1 e Book last month the German Government had not given statistics of every kind of employment, including every kind Returned iilo our own return, ps well as. others, and that the nett resa t was less than 1 per cent. of unemployment. Mr Llo d George: the hon. member is quite wrong. If he will look at the Labour Gazette" he will find that it is there pointed out th"t the German computation is upon a totally different basis from our own.
CLAIM FOR DAMAGES. A FLOAT AND A TRAP COLLIDE NEAR LLANDUDNO. His Honour Judge Moss and a jury, the fore- man of which wag Mr H. J. W. Watlinj^ J p investigated the claim of .Richard Jones and Hannah Jones, of Gilfa-ch, near Llaududho, to recover £ 100 damages for personal injuries to HaamaJi Jones, and £ 3 for injuries done to a ralli car, from Edwin Williams butcher, of Llandudno, and who is in charge of Maes Du r Farm, from Messrs Edward Owen and Sons. as the results of a collision between the defen- dant s float and the plaintiff's trap, on the Coilway-i-oad, Llandudno, on the night of Sep- tembei 10th. 1 vrMr E- ,G- Hemmerde, M.P. (instructed bv Messrs Chamberlain and Johnson), appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr R. A. 'Griffith (in- structed by Mr Hallmark) for the defendant Mr Hemmeade, in opening the case to the jury, said that the damages were for personal injuries to Mm Jones, loss in consequence of her illness, and damage to the ralii car in which the plaintiffs were travelling. On the night of September 10th, there were some celebrations going on in Llandudno of the coming-of-afre of the eldest son of Lord Mostyn, and Mr and -Irs Richard Jones, their two children, ajid a Mrs Smith drove In to Llandudno to see tho h re works, and after they were over they left Llandudno again on the way home. This was SS V>V'iodV Mr aj5d Mrs were eated m front of the car, and Mr Smith was behind with the two children. They were pro- 100 n%f'eT(?>n^ay-r0ad- and were about t ffoW tbe Llandudno side of the Mostyn v, w £ re on their Pr°P«r side andth/vtf the },1€d-e rather closely. _nd they h«d two lamps 'lighted on the trap, whtn awithaStg0mn' aIon-.at a moderate pace, when, without any warning, exce.pt that the plaintiffs did just hear the defendant's vehicle approaching just/before it ran into them th* S by tlle defendant crashed into the plainW trap. At that time tie floafc w^ o^ t,lie at aH n the road and had no lights Tone 5e of collision was that Mirs wheel n V forwards, so that the wheel of their own trap ran over her ankle ^ji considerably shaken, and her ankle wasi badly bruised. It was necessary to look with some closeness at the conduct of the de- Th^defena £ er+ If* accldent had W caused, w dfendajlt jOYe on. He knew an accident own ^riItCaUBei T U n fault or not was another .poinit Mr Jones jumped out of his trap and'ran and shouted after the defendant. Finally he came up with him, and found the defendant was driving the float, and that he had with him th^fjh^' fr/- Spmther James. It seemed that the defendant was returning from Taly- afn Fair, and that he had not gone to Llan ,d„dno not by the direct TOad, £ 7X11 ky rather circuitous route. He had. now got on the direct road, and was evidently returning to Llandudbo. When the plaintiff WhJ*5 W11t\?Ii:.Wi,I^ms, he told him that he had no lights burning, and that he was on if if ?V'he road" Mr Williams re- P had had a light burning, but that it had been knocked out by the collision This hi Wl" Wa'S fu T06 t6Sied by the Pontiff by feekng in the lamp whether there was a nTW 3Tld whetheF ^mp was warm £ There was no candle there, and the •lamp was stone cold'. One would imagine that when a serious collision had taken place a man; who was not m fault would probabl- have I waited to see what he could do. The plain- I tiff's wife had looked after the dairv at tho farm, and since the accident she had been un- able to do any work whatsoever. She would. m the opinion of the medical witnesses, suffer from the effects of the accident for months. The case originally started in the ^>urt brought to the County Jone* f^d Hannah Jones (rave evi- dence confirming the opening statement of coiln- John Smith, of Chester, said that he 63.t side- ways at the back of the car, and was looking f between Ridhard and Hannah Jones The defendants float had no light. Evidence was given by Thtomas' Williams, Evan Owen Evans (Talycafn), Thomas Wil- liams fPenfryn, Llangwst-enyn), Elizabeth Da- M TIT 'Co'ttaffas: Evan Jones (Gilfach) and W. Davies, labourer, Llangws- enyn, all testifying that there was no light tenyn, all testifying that there was no light burning aft-er the collision, soia-e of them adding that the lamp was cold. — Mr T. B. Farrington gnve evidence as to the I measurement of the road at the particular spot- where the collision is stated to have taken place. Di Fouikes (Conway) testified to having at- tended Hannah Jones for a certain complaint for about nine yeare. The accident had aggra- vated that complaint-, and she would not be able to attend fully to her household duties for another month. Dr Griffith. (Deganwy) gave corroborative evidence. Mr R. A. Griffith, in opening the defence, said that the defendant left Talvcafn Auction Mart with Mr J. T. Davies, of TanVallt, Llan- ewstenyn. They drove to Tan'rallt, and there Mr Davies lent the defendant a lamp, which was lit- before he left Tanrsilt. The lamp did not quite fit the socket, and Mr Davies tied it up. At Windmill the defendant asked a man to see to the fastening; the lamp was then burning brighitly. Similarly the lamp was all right at the Queen's Head, Llaiirhos. As to the oolliion, he sa.id, the two traps only just touched each other, and then the defendant's mare bolted, and he could not stop her for a distance of 60 to 100 yards. The defendant was driving quietly and carefully, and took all possible precaution with regard to his light. The defendant stated that a trace was broken by the impact, and that caused the mare to run away. The light was burning until the collision, and that knocked it out. His opin- ion was that Mr Jones, the plaintiff, and Mr S-mitih were talking together, and were not noticing where they were gomg. Thiomas Davies, Tanyralli. Lla-ngwstenin, stated that he lent the defendant a lamp on the night in question. It was burning brightly when he left his place. Eldivvard Edwards, labourer, Windmill, said that he attended to the lamp at the Queen's Head Hotel. "7íJ1"11 defendant- departed the lamp was burning. David Jones, Penybont, Liangwstenyn, gave evidence to the same effect. John Hughes. Queen's Head Llanrhos. de- clared that the lamp was burning when the de- fendant arrived thpre. and also when he de- parted for home. Dr J. Spinther James, J.P.. who was in the. float, said tha,t he was confident that the lamp was burning until the moment of the accident. When Richard Jones came up to them the wit- ness told him that h.. wanted all the road to himself. Fjunlther elvi-dence was given by Thctaias Hughes, Tanybryn, Llangwstenvn; and Joseph Park Jones, 14. Council-street, Llandudmo. P.C. Hugh Ellis, of liandudno, stat-ed tha.t Mr Williams informed him that he had had a. collision on the Conway-road, a.nd that it had broken his la.mp, and put the light out. The officer looked at the lamp, and saw there wax a wick in it, but he could see no candle. Asked now to look at the lamp, he said it. seemed to be in the same condition. Ellis had his notebook own before him, and the Judge asked to see it. After reading the entry made, as the policeman stated at the time. his Honour handed the book back to the witness, and requested him to read the entry over to himself, and then consider whetfher be re-affirmed the evidence he had given. Having read the note, P.C. Ellis said it was quite true, that he saw the wick in the lamp. His Honour then read the note as follows: — "I was on duty at Lower Most'Vn-streel, Llandudno, at 8.10 p.m. I saw Edwin Wil- liams and his float. He crot -,it of the float, and called me, so I went to him. 'He told me- he had hlad a. smash in Con way-road, which had jerked his candle out of the lamip, and had broken his trace. He said he was goin? to get another candle, and he went to do so." His Honour, summing up, alluded to the fact that the defendant, when foe had stopped the mare, chose to go on to Llandudno instead of returning to the assistance of the injured lady, and to measure the spot in the road where the ■accKf^rit hiad o$cuw}?«. The Judfce aisfasd! whether that was consistent with the ordinary 'conduct of men who felt they had not been is the wrong. As to the policeman's book. the silent testimony of the written document when the two parties were in conflict was of the greatest importance. The jusry, after Qjin^pltinjr for ten minutes, returned a. verdict in favour of the plaintiff. They asses.sed the damages at JB15. His Hon- ur gave judgment for that amount, with costs FOR two davs' attendance at CMM*.
