George Baynes, a hawking herbalist, was brought up on a judgment summons for non- contribution towards is son's support in the Industrial School. -Superititojident Gid>tings said defendant, who had evidently imbibed fteely that evening, owed 19s in all. The order was made in August last.-The Btnch Have you anything to say why an order should noc be made ?—Defendant (in a very theatrical tone) I had 10s a mouth off him. I kept a shop once, but if I have to pay. I'll pay. My boy has been working at Lloyd's, and if I must pay, I'll pay it. See ? Defendant here put his hat on and made for the exist. Having been hauled back in a suitable manner, the Bench said Now, do you wish to call any witnesses ? If you don't behave properly, you will be sent to prison for misbehaviour.

Rennie's boy was also put in the same place for 12 months.—Attendance orders in respect of the children of the following were made Sidney Roberts, Thomas Foley, George Musgrave, Mary Bigwell, and Mary Gimlett. THE DOGS. The usual number of people were fined for feed- ing their dogs, which operation necessitates the removal of the muzzle, when the owner always directs the dog to the front door, where Providene* has placed a wily man of law. Dogs must be fed, and the feeding excuse is the one generally alleged as the caua. of the family disgrace. Annie Clarke, Richard Cullen, F. P. Jones-Lloyd, and John Henry Fowler were fined 68; Thomas Williams, 7a 6d and H. H. Paul, Charles Phillips, and Edgar Jones, 10s. The case against John Dandie's dog was dismissed. A STREET NUISANCE. Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd represented eight boys who were charged with using obscene language in the public street on the evening of the 7th inst. Their names were Jonah Jones, Godfrey Pember, John Phillips, John Flynn, William Davies, William Laugford, David Mason, and Arthur Rea. Police-constable Davies' evidence was to the effect that on the evening in question he seoreted himself in an empty house near the place where the boys congregated, and stayed there three-quarters of an hour, during which time he took down the language of each of the defendants, which was banded to the bench.—In answer to Mr Jones Lloyd witness said he could hear perfectly all that as said, and could see without being seen. He had seen a young woman pass, and had heard obscene laDgusge used by one of the defendants towards her.—For the defence, a total denial of the officer's charge were made, and each of the defendant were put in the box, aod swore that they did not make use of the language complained of. The shop near which they were standing was the head.quarters of their football club, and they were discussing the previous Saturday's match.—The Beneh dismissed dofen-. dante with a caution, but remarked that bad language had undoubtedly been used, and if they appeared there again it would be remembered against them.

John Somer- field paid Is for the pleasure of being informed by the police that his chimney was on fire when he knew it not. DRUNK AND INCAPABLE PEOPLE. The above is not a very fine or encouraging description to follow in the wake of one's illustrious cognomen, especially in those stirring times. But some people take a pleasure in being so described at the approach of Christmas, they think it neces- sary to get drunk in order to keep up the hallowed memories of the season. For committing offences similar to the headline Wm Richards, Mary Ann Lightbody, Thomas Cosgrove, Margaret Johnson, Keudrick Lloyd, and Edward Halloran, were fined 5s each Thomas Brown and Wm Tennaat, 7s 6d; Frank Gear and Patrick Kennedy, 10s and Mary Jones, an old offender, who bowed in a stately manner to the Bench, and who now registered her 16th appearance, was sent to prison for a month. Mary's words were prophetic as left the dock. She invoked the blessings of the Deity on the magis- trates, and wished them a Happy Christmas. LITTLE BOYS PLAY FOOTBALL. Desirous of emulating the crack and cracked teams of this district, three little boys, old for their age and small in stature, presented them- selves before their Worships on the seiious charge ef playing football on the highway. This they did on the 10th inst. in the pubiic street, to the danger of eveiything and everybody generally. They had been up before on a similar offence, but the magis- trates lot them off w ith a fine of Is each. DETERMINED YOUNG RASCALS. George James Clements, a dock worker, told a story to the benoh, which showed the de,eimined manner in which two boys br he the law and several panes of glass in this dis rict the other day. Clements said that on the 4th inst. he was proceed- ing to his work and when in the neighbourhood of Woodlai d-road saw two boys, n^med Sid Rube'ts and Cl aries, ag d 9 and 11 respectively, smash the gl;-ss of a public street lamp. He saw them attack a second and third lamp in the same manner. He now became interested in the career of these youngsters and followed them up, and was rewarded by observing them to deliberately smash five panes of glass in a block of buildings belonging to Alban Richards, contractor, in Kendrick-road, Barry Dock. He then gave them into custody. William Wall, in the employ of Alban Richards, said the value of the glass br ken by the boys was 10s. The District Council did not proceed against defendants for smashing the lanipm owing to the fact that the boys were sentenced to be birehed last week for housebreaking. fhey were now fired 10s each. The Bench thanked Clements for the part he had taken in bringing the boys to justice, BAD COMPANY. William Robertson, a eoaltrimmer, living at M. George-street, Barry Dock, was in bad company on the night of the 9th inst. The result was that he now charged Mary Ann Jones, a womaa belonging to the unfortunate elass, with stealing from him £1 in gold. Prisoner, Robertson alleged, spoke to him at the Royal Hotel. and after exchanging a few commonplace remarks, anent nothing in par- ticular, witness stood the lady a quart," and after they had been out for a short time, as the woman alleged, they parted. Prosecutor after- wards missed I is sovereign.—Sid Flook, assistant to Sol Barnett, pawnbroker, 55. Main-street, Cadoxton, said prisoner came the following week and took some goods she had pawned there out of pledge, for* which she tendered a sovereign.— Police-constable Thomas arrested prisoner, and the case was now adjourned till Friday, in order that further information may be obtained. OBSCENE LANGUAGE. Thomas Jones and William Lloyd were fined is and 10s respectively for using obscene language on the highway. AN EMOTIONAL IRISHMAN. John Moynehin, an uncommon name, and one that caused considerable trouble to the Bench, was charged in custody on two counts of felony. The first, with stealing an electro-plated knife, fork, and spoon from the Barry Dock Hotel, and the second with stealing a number of penknives, valued at 12s, the property of John Foscolo, general dealer, 58, Thompson-street, Barry Dook. E. Bewden, clerk at Culley's Hotel, recognised the knife, fork, and spoon as the property of R. P. Culley and Co., the owners.—Police-sergeant Wm Reed, of the Cardiff Borough Police, said he arrested prisoner in Grangetown on Saturday last. He was hawking from house to house, and offering the stolen property for sale. Witness required his license, and his answers, to questions not being satisfactory he was taken into custody and handed over to the Barry Dock police, being, transferred to Police-oonstablo Harris.—The second charge pre- ferred against prisoner was almost identical with the former one. The prosecutor, John Foscolo, missed his penknives on Saturday morning, the 16th inst., and they were in possession of prisoner when arrested in Cardiff. Prisoner was very emotional and cried in court, denying the charges. -The magistrates offered an alternative, aad fined him JE2 in each case, or one month's hard labour.
