When the prosecutor had finished in the show-ring he failed to find the prisoner. Information was therefore given to the Haverford- west police with the result that the prisoner and pony were traced to Narberth, where the prisoner was apprehended.

The jury, after a deliberation lasting ten minutes, returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was discharged. This concluded the business of the sessions. PEMBROKESHIRE.
