At a special Police Court held at Mold this (Thursday) morning, Caroline Whalley, Topyrallt, Black Brook Mold, was charged with "feloniously at- tempting to cause to be taken by John Whalley certain poison called strychnine with intent in so doing feloniously and wil- fully of malice aforethought to kill and murder the said John Whalley." Supt. Davies outlined the case, and several witnesses were then called. John Whalley, keeper in the employ of Mr. P. T. Davies-Cooke, Gwysaney, said the prisoner was his wife. He married her three years ago, and there were two chil- dren of the marriage. About a month ago he borrowed some strychnine from the head- keeper. It was in the form of crystals, and was in a dark green bottle. It was used for the destruction of vermin. He used some of the poison and subsequently put the bottle in the pocket of one of his coats, which was hanging up in the house. That was about a fortnight ago. The same eve- ning he went to Soughton. While he was there it suddenly occurred to him that he had left the strychnine in his pocket at home. When he returned he went to the coat, but found that the bottle had gone. He asked his wife if she had had it, and she replied that she had not seen it, adding "You must have lost it out of your pocket." Next morning he made a search, but was unable to find the bottle. On Monday night last he went to the rearing ground at Penygarth" leaving home about half-past seven. Before leaving the house he had been on perfectly good terms with his wife, though she had been a little diffe- rent during the day. She gave him some bread-and-cheese sandwiches and some cur- rant cake, wrapped up in a piece of paper and a handkerchief, to take with him. Afterwards he went to Rliydymwyn and had some liquid refreshment and food there. Then he returned to his duties in the field. Between five and six in the morning he drank some tea which his wife had made for him, and ate two pieces of cake which were on the top of the packet of food. Then he took hold of the bread and cheese and, bit it. He thought it tasted rather bitter and spat it out at once. He did not bite or eat any other portion of it, but wrapped it up and brought it home at midday. On the way to the garden he gave the bread- and cheese sandwich to his retriever bitch. That was the same sandwich that his wife had prepared. Shortly afterwards his at- tention was attracted by his little girl cry- ing out, and looking up he saw the bitch, kicking on the ground. Its eyes were go- ing round, and it was foaming at the mouth. He thought that it had been poisoned, and immediately obtained an emetic. The bitch vomited once and then died. He went into the house, and putting his hands on his wife's shoulders, he said, "What did you want to put that stuff in my food last night for?" She said, "What stuff?" and he told her "Poison." She said, "I have never had it." Witness then called in two neighbours. Later he saw his wife, accom- I panied by a neighbour, go out of the house to a Tieap of stones and ashes. He saw I them stoop down, move some stones, and take out something. He went to meet the neighbour, who had a bottle in her hand, which she gave to him. The bottle was similar to the one lie had lost. He took the bottle into the wood and smashed it into a thousand pieces. He went to the Police Station the same night and gave in- formation. "SOME WHITE STUFF." Elizabeth Weaver, wife of James Wea- ver, gardener on the Estate, said that about mid-day on Tuesday she received a request to go into the Whalleys' house. She went there, and Mr Whalley made a certain statement to her. Later on slie accompan- ied Mrs. Whalley into the yard to an ash- heap. Mrs. Whalley stooped down and picked up a small green bottle, after re- moving some stones and leaves. She gave the bottle to her (witness). It was a small green bottle and contained some white stuff. Mr. E. P. Edwards, veterinary surgeon, spoke to making a post-mortem examination on the black retriever bitch. After giving evidence as to the contents of the stomach, witness said he offered no opinion at pre- sent beyond that there were no organic rea- sons to account for death. Supt. Davies said that last night he took Mrs. Whalley into custody and conveyed her to the Police Station. Impressed by her apparently weak condition, he asked her if she felt strong enough to hear e charge, and she replied that she did. Her reply to the charge was "I did not." Following that she made a voluntary statement, which he proposed to put in at the proper time. Afterwards he sent for Dr. Williams to see the accused. Dr. Edward Williams said that about half past 11 last night he was called to the Pol- ice Station to examine Mrs. Whalley and found her in a very weak condition. She was, however, fully cognisant of what was going on. The Superintendent stated that the con tents of the stomach of the bitch had been conveyed to the county analyst, with certain other things found on the premises. The analyst told him that it would be at least a week before he would be able to give him anything definite. He (the superintendent) would not object to substantial bail. Un- fortunately he had not been able to get any member of the accused's family to do any- thing in the matter. The Magistrate (Mr. John Hughes) said prisoner would be reman<Ted until a week to-morrow. Bail would be accepted in two sums of k50, one surety to be provided by herself and one other surety.

PROGRESSIVE FFYNNONGROEW. The agitation promoted by the inhabi- tants of Ffynnongroew and district for a railway station promises success. The London and North-Western Railway Co. are reported to have taken initia- tory steps to grant the application for a station at Ffynnongroew, and it is quite possible that the situation will be near Llinegar Bridge, and close to the road leading to Penyffordd and Llanasa. For passenger and parcels traffic the station at Ffynnongroew will be much more con- venient to the general public than the sta- tion at Talacre. Another sign of progress is the laying down along the roadside at Ffynnongroew of the pipes for th carrying of the acetylene gas from the generating station to the several standards to be erec- ted along the village and up Penyffordd. Building is also proceeding extensively. Mr. John Roberts, Kidderminster House, has just let the contract for the building of two houses and a shop at Ffynnongroew.
