An employee named George Dool living at No. 10, East street, Trallwn, was at his work as usual when seen alive, which was about six o'clock. An hour and a half later he was missing, and a search was instituted Mr Albert Matthews, the brewer, fearing that the man had fallen into the beer vat, looked into that huge vessel, and there discovered the dead body. How deceased got into the vat is a mys- tery, but it is expected that while engaged in brewing operations he mounted to the top step and fell over. He was a delicate man, and the probability is that he fainted whilst in his some- what dangerous position and was thus unable to save himself. The police were immediately called in and the body was conveyed home on the ambulance by P.C.'s D. Da vies (33) and William Evans (40). Deceased leaves a ^dow and two children. The inquest will probably be held on Saturday.

At the Maidenhead police court on Monday, Thomas Hulett, residing at Barry road, Ponty- pridd, who did not appear, had been summoned by Maria Treby, formerly living at Pontypridd, but now residing with her sister in Maidenhead, to show cause why he should not contribute towards the maintenance of her illegitimate child, of which she alleged lie was the father. The Magistrate's Clerk said that the summons had been served by declaration. Mr T. W. Stuchbery, solicitor, Maidenhead, appeared for the complainant, and said that his client and defendant had been engaged for upwards of three years, and during that tima defendant had constantly visited her at her father's house. On the 7th of June of this year a child was born, and the mother of the girl had since seen the defendant and charged him with the paternity. He (Mr Stuchbery) had in his possession two letters which had been read -from Hulett, and in both he admitted being father of the child. In the second letter, Mr Stuchbery added, he offered to pay 3s. towards the maintenance of the child. The complainant, a very respectable young woman, stated that she was a dressmaker, and was at present residing with her sister at 78, Garden Cottages, Maidenhead. She had been engaged to defendant three years, and during that time Hulett frequently visited her—sometimes three times a oay. Her child was born on Ilhit-Munday last at her sLt jr's house; defendant was the father. The letters produced were in defendant's handwriting. These were read by Mr Stuchbery, and the second one was to the effect that he was willing to pay 3s. a week. In reply to the chairman, complainant said that Hulett was a paving-cutter and earned £2 10s. a week.—A Magistrate: How do you know that he earns that ? He generally earns that amount. His is piece-work, and the more he works the more money he gets.—By the Bench: She knew this because her father worked at the same place as defendant.— Mrs Treby, mother of the applicant, living at Pontypridd, said that her daughter was 18 years old, and had never been out with any other young man but defendant. She spoke to him in Barry road, and asked him what ho was going to do. He said he would write to her daughter. The magistrate made an order upon defendant to pay 3s. 6d a week until the child attained the age of 16, and ordered him to pay "the costs (Fl 6i) forthwith.
