Story said that he had been informed by his sister on Tues day night, that some more fowls had been stolen. After one o'clock the next morning. he placed the matter in the hands of the police. The fowl was valued at 2s. Sergt. Farrell said that in consequence of information received from Mr. Story, he went to make inquiries. He called upon the prisoner, who at first denied all knowledge of it. He searched the firegrate, and found the bones and feathers (produced). There was a quantity of fowl soup, and vessels on the table that had contained fowl.' Witness again asked the prisoner what he had got to say, and he replied It is no use, I've done it, but I only took one. I would not have taken it only I was in drink, and I had no food in the house for the children.' Witness did not see any food in the house, except some crusts. Mr. Story said he did not wish to press the case, Prisoner was bound over to come up for judg- ment when call«d upon in the sum of £ 10, and to pay 18s. costs. A fortnight's time was allowed to pay. THE RATNFALL OF 1900. We have been favoured by Mr William Barker, clerk to the Asylum Visitors,, with an account of the rainfall during the past year, taken by him at Llyn-Bran and Pant y Maen, on the Hiraethog mountains. Llyn Bran is situated 1,428 above sea-level, and Pant y Maen 1,320 feet. Llyn-Bran. Pant y maen. January 493 489 February 5,21 5'74 March 2 00 2 05 April 289 S-36 May 2 60 253 June 3 25 2 93 July 2.00 168 August 9 39 10'03 September 177 l-52 October 875 815 November 6'15 6'16 December 6 49 6'09 Total 5543 5413 Total for 1899 57.31 53-42 The table shows what a terribly wet month August was, when nearly one-fifth of the total rain for the year fell. The next wettest month was October, and curiously enough, the driest month of the year—Sep- tember—came between these two months. Another interesting fact connected with this table is, that the raicitall at Llyn Bran was less by about two inches last year than the year before, whilst at Pant y Maen the rainfall is greater by neariy an inch. This, we presume, is due to local showers and thunderstorms.
