A WELSH 'FRAME' HORSE. ♦ A CAR PROPRIETOR FINED. At Wrexham County Buildings, on Monday, Captain Griffith-Boscawen presiding, Edward Lewis, car proprietor and grocer, Pentre, Broughton, was charged by Inspector Bar- tholomew, of the Royal Society for the Pre- vention of Cruelty to Animals, with cruelly illtreating two animals on the 31st July by overdriving them. It appeared that defendant was driving an excursion party in the neigh- bourhood of Gresford. In the evening the horses were so exhausted that they could not be induced, even by severe whipping, to draw an empty brake up a steep incline known as Craeshowel Hill. They stuck half way up, and could go no farther. One horse was merely a 'frame,' and was not fit to work at all. The other was all of a shiver.—The Chairman said the Bench considered the case a very bad one, and in fining the defendant L2 4s. 6d., including costs, said he was liable to be fined £10. At the same court, Robert Millington, of Rossett, was fined 10s., including costs, for working a horse which the inspector described as being nothing but a knacker. Defendant had since destroyed the animal, and this fact was taken into consideration by the Bench.
