H, Davies. A VIOLENT CUSTOMER. Thos. Rees, a Gelli collier, was charged with being drunk and disorderly and doing damage to a tramcar, A third charge of being drunk and refusing to quit the Gordon Hotel, Gelli, in Decem- ber last was also preferred against pri- soner. The last charge was proved by P.S. Baker, whilst P.C. Jones, Ystrad, and Insnector Hughes, of the Rhondda Tram- ways, gave evidence in support of the first two charges. Inspector Hughes said that prisoner threw a bottle, which narrowly missed his head and smashed a tramcar's des- tination glass, lamps, etc., to the extent of 25s, Prisoner denied all charges, and de- clared that whatever he would say in his own defence would not be believed. A fine of 10s., or seven days, is respect of being; drunk and refusing to quit was imposed; and E2, including damage, or one month's alternative, in respect of the other charges was imposed. Prisoner took the alternative. AN OBLIGING PRISONER. Rees Williams, labourer, Ferndale, was charged with being drunk and disorderly, A second charge of damaging a cell door j at the Ferndale Police Station was also preferred against him. When clitrged, prisoner said Three months is no good to me. Give me six months, and I'll be in for the winter." Fines amounting to 20s., or fourteen days, were imposed. THEFT FROM FELLOW-LODGER, David Henry Wood, a youthful collier, was remanded for a week on a charge of stealing a watch from a fellow-lodger at 17, America Place, Porth. OUT OF WORK. Fredk. Reed and George Williams, labourers, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to stealing a pair of boots from iall-essrs. Briggs' shop, Pontypridd. One of the prisoners said that lie had nothing to say except that he stole the boots, as he had no work. They had been looking for work all day and were wet to the skin. The Stipendiary said he was satisfied they had no intention to steal, and dis- charged both. "RINGING OF CHANGES." Wm. Humphrey Lewis, collier, 36, Tie-j hafod Road, Trehafod, was indicted upon obtaining various sums of monev from] several persons through passing off gilded sixpences as half-sovereigns.^ Alice Maud Longstafl, assistant post- mistress, Trehafod, said that on 2nd October she served prisoner with a postal order for 2s., for which he tendered a sovereign. After returning him his change, prisoner again asked for a 10s. order, and tendered a gilded sixpence in payment. When remonstrated with, pri- soner said he received it in the change from witness. Prisoner was arrested on 16th October by P.C. Lucas at Ooedcae Colliery, and conveyed to Porth Police Station. In reply to the charge, prisoner said "I will say nothing now." Julia Williams, Bridgend Hotel, Tre- hafod, said that on 26th June last, pri- soner and another man came into the house. Prisoner asked for two pints of beer, and tendered a sovereign in pay- ment. On receiving his change he de- clared that witness had given him a bad half-sovereign, and rather than have a disturbance in the house, she gave him I half-sovereign from the till. She later handed the gilded sixpence to P.O. Lucas. The third person to be victimised was Thos. John Walters, Vaughan's Arms lute!. Trehafod. Here prisoner obtained ui ounce of tobacco, and tendered a gilded sixpence in payment. When charged with the two later .,ffeiices, prisoner said: "Leave it alone." In a long, statement made to the police, prisoner said that he met a stranger, with whom he went about various public- houses and passed off the gilded sixpences. The stranger also igave him five of the latter, which prisoner passed off in various places, mostly public-houses. The Bench said they would accept his I story as to bit receiving the gilded six- pences from a stranger. He helped an- other man to cheat other people, and there he went into the business himself. It was a very mean thing to do, and if passed over, would tend to encourage this sort of thing in the district. Prisoner was sentenced to one month's imprisonment in respect of each of the offences, the sentences to run con- currently. UNFIT FOR WORK. For working a horse in an unfit state, Thomas Rowe and Eliz. White, milk vendors, Treorchy, were fined 10s. each. P.C. Case proved the offence. WINDOW SMASHING AT CWMPARC. John Evan Lewis and Jos. Yaughan, Cwmparc, were charged with wilful damage to a. window. Mr. J. Phillips, Pontypridd, defended. William Davies, Railway Terrace, Cwm- parc, said that a window pane in his house, value 6d., had been broken. Rosina Davies, daughter of last wit- ness, said that she saw the defendants letting their pigeons fly and then throw- ing stones at them. A little later she heard a crash and saw that the window was broken. John Davies, Cwmparc, said that he saw complainant's sons throwing the stones. A fine of 5s. inclusive was imposed. CHIMNEY ON FIRE. David Morris, Pentre, was fined 2s. 6d. for allowing the chimney of his house to catch fire.
Face full of Pimples. Red pimples clustered so thickly over every part of my face," says Mrs. Shard- low, 293, Gt. Alfred Street, Nottingham, you could not put a pin point between one and another.

Porth Police Court. Thursday.—Before the Stipendiary (Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas), Mr. T. P. Jenkins and Dr. E. N. Davies. NOT A WELSHMAN THIS TIME. Michael Sullivan, of no fixed abode, was charged with stealing a large joint of beef. Elias Davies, butcher, Gelli, said that on 13th October, whilst he was not in the shop, someone came in, but witness did not attend immediately. When he went to the shop there was no one there. Shortly afterwards he was informed that prisoner had taken some meat, and found the joint (produced) missing. P.S. Baker said that he saw prisoner with the meat under his arm, and becoming suspicious, asked him where he had it from. Prisoner said "I bought it for tuppence." When charged, pri- soner said that another man had given the meat to him to sell. Prisoner, who had several previous con- victions against him, was sentenced to twenty-one days' imprisonment. STRUGGLE IN THE LANE. Richard Hall, Ifaulier, Wattstown, was charged with being drunk and disorderly and assaulting the police. P.C. Davies said that about quarter- past eleven on Tuesday night, 12th inst., he saw defendant in a lane in Watts- town. As witness passed, he told defen- dant to go home. Defendant then struck witness on the side of the head. They both closed, and defendant kicked wit- ness on the leg, and struck him on the body and on the ear. After struggling for a considerable time, witness managed to handcuff his man. Witness could not go on dutv the following day and still bore the effects of the conflict. Several other convictions, for drunk and disorderly and assaulting the police were proved against the defendant. The charge of being drunk and dis- orderly was dismissed, but a fine of £5 for the assault was imposed, or one month's imprisonment. EMMA, THE; WEiLL-KNOWN. Emma Retaiiick was. again brought before the Bench for being drunk and disorderly. P.O. Knioe said that on the 13th inst. he saw a crowd by the Park Hotel, Ponty- pridd. Prisoner was in the middle, creating a great disturbance. With the assistance of P.C. Lewis, prisoner was locked up. Prisoner said that she had only come out of gaol the day before, after serving two months. Deputy Chief Constable Cole said that there were 188 previous convictions. The Bench discharged prisoner with a caution. Defendant's sister, Catherine Sullivan, Swansea, was similarly charged, but the Bench, taking a lenient view, discharged her. STREET BETTING. Frank Steele, collier. Treforest, was charged with street betting. P.C. Williams, Porth, said that about half-past one on the 13th inst. he saw defendant in the old Tram Road, Tre- forest, with several others. They were referring to a newspaper. Witness watched them for a quarter of an hour, and saw the men give defendant slips and money. At the Police Station, defendant handed witness 34 racing slips, Is., and £ 3 2s. 8d. in an envelope. Witness searched defendant, and found three racing slips, lis. 5d. in cash, and a "tear- out memorandum book, and also a letter with the name of a Pontypridd man who takes interest in racing, and who has been convicted for a similar charge.

Have You Zam-Buk at Hotne? FATHER, MOTHER AND CHILDREN" BENEFIT. SORE HANDS AND FOOT, SCALP SORES AND BRUISES. The, adoption of Zam-Buk by Mr. W. Steedman in his home has already had several happy results. Mr. Steedman, interviewed at his home, at 10. Milnes Court, Edinburgh, told the reporter of different incidents in hi", family, which all show that Zam-Buk fills a real need in the home—a need, too. that nothing else can supply. My wife had long suffered with her hands, which always cracked and chapped when taken out of water," said Mr. Steedman. The joints and knuckles of her fingers and the backs of the hands were always swollen, and there were deep bleeding gashes in the skin and flesh. Mere ointments never did any good they did not even take away the smarting pain and irritation. What my wife needed was something, to heal the skin and make it strong enough to withstand the evil effects of the water, and this no ordinary ointments were able to accomplish. Zam- Buk being more than an ointment proved just the thing we had been looking for. Smearing this rare balm over my wife's hands gave her immediate ease from pain. A few days later, after further Zam-Buk dressings, every sore place on both hands was healed up with an entirely new skin. Many washing days have passed since then, and my wife has not had any further trouble with her hands. The skin is both healthy and strong. Now as to myself, I endured agonies from a badly inflamed and swollen toe. I could not bear anything to touch the toe. For months 1 wore an old shoe with a big hole cut in the side. Ointments and poultices only seemed to increase the burning pain. After my wife had found Zam-Buk so soothing and healing, I tried the balm. I smeared Zam-Buk on a cloth and wrapped it round the toe, Zam-Buk soothed the painful toe and took away all the inflammation and swelling. My toe is now quite sound. My daughter was the next to need Zam-Buk. She fell downstairs, which raised a lump as big as an egg on her forehead. A few applications of Zam- Buk took away all the pain and swelling. My little grand-daughter had a big nasty scab on the back of her head. Zam- Buk was applied and soon the scab fell away, leaving the scalp cleanand healthy. We never before knew of such a treasure in the home as Zam-Buk, and we would not -be without a good supplv of it." Zam-Buk, which is the latest response by science to the very ffeal need of the public for an ever-ready and pure healing balm, is prepared only by the sole pro- prietors in their private laboratory, and sold for them by chemists in sealed boxes at 1/1-1, 2/9, or 4/6, or for same prices from Zam-Buk Co., 45, Uow Cross Street, E.C.
