SAD CASE OF THEFT. Linda Bay man, a respectably-dressed young woman, 17 years of w^s charged with stealing a gold oroocn, value £ 6, the property of Mrs. Mary Davies Windsor Hotel, lon-Pentre. Prosecutrix said that at 10 a.m. on the 1st October- she placed a gold mourn- ing brooch in a cardboard box on the mantelpiece of her bedroom. When she went to lopk for it the next moining, it was missing. She made enquiries ox tne (girls in the house, but failed to trace anything; she then gave information to the police. Prisoner had been in her employ as domestic servant, but had left six months ago. Harris Rossin, pawnbroker, Gelli Gelli, said that prisoner offered the brooch in pledge oil the 18th October. He examined the brooch, and questioned the prisoner closely, but not being satis- Red with the answers given, he became suspicious and sent for the police. P.O. Young said that iio wBirfc to Hoggin's shop, where he saw prisoner in the pledge office. Rossin "told .J? prisoner's presence that she had ottered the brooch in pledge. At 11 n.m. on the same night he arrested her on a charge of stealing the brooch, and in reply to the charge, she said, "I was hard up for money; I took the brooch to enable me to get my skirt out of pawn." Prisoner, who pleaded guilty, wept bitterly during the hearing. Prisoner's father said that his daughter had been in service for about twelve months, and had only been in one place besides the Windsor Hotel. She had never been in trouble before; iiei only fault in the past was keeping late hours. She had been keeping company with people whom he believed had led her astrav. The Stipendiary said that the father ought to bring pressure to bear upon his daughter to get her away from the influence of these people, and place her in service in a private house, where she Would not come into touch with the attraction of the public. Addressing prisoner, his Worship said lie hoped this would be a warning to her. It was no doubt that the love oi fineiy that led her into this temptation, and he believed that the case would be met with by placing her under probation for the next six months. IMPUDENT THEFT OF STOCKINGS. John Smith, a. navvy, of no fixed abode, was charged with stealing a bundle or stockings, value 10s. 9d., the property of Henry Williams, Ystrad-Rhondda. Prosecutor said he kept a stocking and tobacconist shop at Gelligaled Road, Ystrad-Rhondda. At 6.30 p.m. on Satur- day last, prisoner came into the shop and asked for a halfpenny. Witness said he had nothing to give him, whereupon pri- soner became very abusive, and cursed him very badly. Tie then left the shop, but soon after returned, and grabbed a bundle of stockings containing 16 pairs from a shelf, and left the shop. Witness gave information to the police. Later in the evening, witness identified pri- soner among eight or nine other navvies at Moss Cottage Lodging-house. The stockings had not been recovered. Thos. Jones, collier, 11, Club Row, Ystrad, said that at 6.45 p.m. on Satur- day prisoner came to his house, ana ■offered to sell his.mother a iew pairs of stockings remarking: "You will have them cheap." No sale was effected, and prisoner left the house, carrying the Stockings with him. Saml. Bullock, who variously described himself as messing about the place" and an errand boy at Moss Cottage, said that prisoner came to the lodging- house between 7 and 7.30 on Saturday night and tried to sell some stockings to the men in the house. He was certain of prisoner's identity. P.O. Dd. Jones said that he proceeded to Moss Cottage at 6.40 p.m. on Saturday night, accompanied by prosecr who identified prisoner among several other men. Witness arrested prisoner on a charge of stealing the stockings, and conveyed him to the police station, where he was charged. In reply, he said, I know nothing about any stockings." Prisoner pleaded not guilty, and said that he bought three or four pairs from another man, whose name he could not give. The Stipendiary said that he was per- fectly satisfied that the case had been made out. It was an impudent thing on prisoner's part to go into the shop and demand money, and then steal the stockings. It was true he had been drinking, but he knew very well what he about. • Prisoner was sentenced to six weeks hard labour. STIPENDIARY'S ADVICE TO TRADES- MEN. Geo.

Woodhouse came to the shop, bringing with him the stockings, which witness identified as those missing. Evidence of arrest was given by P.O. Woodhouse, who said that hi§ attention Was arrested by the fact that prisoner s Pockets appeared to be very bulky. Failing to give a satisfactory account of how he came to possess them, he took him to the police station, where he was charged with stealing the stockings. In reply, he sai(j I bought them at Ponty- ,gwaith you have made a mistake this time."

He next went towards the Station Hotel, when two men approached him and handed him slips of paper and some money. He then went into the hotel. Witness followed, and told the defendant lie was going to arrest him for frequenting and loitering: in Ynyshir Road for the purpose of making, receiving and settling bets. In reply to the charge, defendant said, "I am guilty; I can't get out of it." Witness searched him, and found three sovereigns, 17s. in silver, twopence, and four slips of paper refer- ring to seven horses running that day; also a booklet referring to the payment of 13 persons. Defendant: I am a youngster at the game, and I don't intend carrying_ it on. I saved the police a lot of trouble in tell- ing the truth, and I hope you'll deal leniently with me this time.

A Popular Stationmasler. Presentation to Mr. W. H Venn. An interesting presentation was made on Friday, 15th inst., at the Trealaw Hotel to Mr. W. H. Venn, late station- master at Tonypandy and Trealaw, who has been recently promoted to Treherbert Station. The presentation, which took the form of a purse of gold for Mr. Venn, together with a suitably inscribed set of cutlery and carvers for his wife, had been liberally subscribed to by the trades- people of the district and station staff. Mr. D. Jenkins, Trealaw, presented the gifts, and in an interesting speech briefly reviewed the Taff Vale Railway at this town during the last twenty years. Suc- cessful stationmasters, he humorously re- marked, not only, like poets, had to be born to their vocation, but they must assist nature by taking their coat off at a busy place like Tonypandy, as it was only by working hard with the men, taking a personal interest in their work, and letting them know that you were not only their superior officer but also their friend, that efficiency could be obtained. These were the methods he knew Mr. Beltn had adopted with every success, and on behalf of the large body of sub- scribers he wished him a long life and good luck in his new appointment. Mr. Venn, in responding, said that some of the happiest times of his life had been spent in Tonypandy. In his experi- ence, it was inevitable that railway com- panies, and especially their station- masters, should be criticised. The custom originated when Stephenson was first experimenting with locomotives, to the astonishment of farmers generally, and to the more painful astonishment of their cattle who got too near the engine. The tradespeople of Mid-Rhondda had, how- ever, always tempered their criticism with good nature, and had given him far more credit than he deserved. Any suc- cess he had met with was due to the loyal co-operation of the men he con- trolled. It was gratifying to think that in these days of so many labour disputes, he could name Tonypandy Station, small in comparison, yet the principle was the same, where the body of men worked loyally together to the benefit of them- selves and of the company. He thanked them one and all for their kindness to Mrs. Venn and himself, and hoped his successor would always meet with the same encouragement as he had received. Inspector Parker, Llandaff, and Mr. Thyers, Penarth, having suitably re- sponded, the meeting closed with a hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Jenkins- for. pre- siding.
