Strange Penygraig Case. Stolen Parcel leads to Threats. Some very peculiar features marked a case heard before the Porth magistrates on Thursday, when John Morgan, retired licensed victualler,, of Penygraig, was sum- moned by Fred Wm. Doughton, hair- dresser, Penygraig, for threats. Mr. D. Rees, Pontypridd, appeared for com- plainant, and Mr. A. T. James, Ponty- pridd, defended. Mr. Rees said that the case was a very extraordinary one, and in order that the Bench might fully understand the nature of it, it was necessary that the whole cir- cumstances leading up to the threat should be related. In October, 1906, proceeded Mr. Rees, the defendant was living at the Gethin Hotel, Penygraig, and being very friendly with the complainant, gave him a parcel, which, he said, contained private papers and a. little money, and asked him to keep it until he came to fetch it. The parcel remained in complainant's possession until about a month or so ago. Complain- ant never looked at the parcel to see what was inside, but placed it in a box at his house and left it there. About a month ago, complainant, with his wife, went out one evening, and upon returning home, found that the house had been broken into during their absence, rooms had been ransacked, and drawers turned out and emptied. Fifteen pounds of complainant's money was taken, together with the parcel left in complainant's charge. The matter was reported to the police, and they, having investigated the matter and found that Mr. Morgan's parcel was missing, sent for him and informed him what had taken place. The defendant now said that the parcel contained £ 120, to which com- plainant replied that he had never been made aware of the amount of money con- tained in the parcel. From that day for- ward, defendant seemed to, have enter- tained a belief that this money had been spent by complainant, and that this burglary was simply a made-up story to save himself. On 24th June, defendant saw complainant at his house, and the following conversation took place. Defen- dant said: I want to know straight what you are going to do about my money." Complainant replied: "What can I do? to which defendant retorted: I will give you a week, and I will then kill you and your wife." That evening, shortly after 11 o'clock, defendant knocked at complainant's house, kicked the door, and tried to get into the house. On the following Thursday, a summons was taken out. Complainant, in the box, bore out his solicitor's statement. Cross-examined by Mr. James, com- plainant said that he was still afraid of defendant, as he believed he would carry out his intention of shooting him if given an opportunity. Complainant further ad- mitted that he and defendant used to be bosom friends and spent several holidays together. The Bench suggested that, as both parties were very respectable people, the solicitors might arrange a settlement between them. Mr. Rees said that he would not like to undertake that responsibility in the face of Morgan's conduct prior and subse- quent to the issue of the summons. Mr. James said the funny thing about the whole affair was that on Wednesday Morgan told the complainant that he was coming for the parcel. Doughton then gave the defendant the impression that the parcel was intact, but on that very evening it was stolen. Rather than bind the defendant over, Mr. James suggested that he should be given another chance, and he was prepared to give an under- taking that he would in no way molest or threaten the complainant any more. Mr. Rees, having consulted his client, said that he was prepared to accept the undertaking, provided that defendant would pay the costs of the caee. The case was accordingly adjourned for two months upon payments of costs, Mr. James pointing out that the defendant's undertaking would in no way prevent him from instituting a civil action for the return of the money.

Davies, Clydach Vale. On the motion of the chairman, a hearty vote of thanks was passed to all the artistes. Messrs. W. J. Jenkins, Tre- alaw, and J. Lewis, Tonypandy, very efficiently presided at the piano. All the arrangements reflected great credit on the secretary, Mr. Lewis Jones, Tonypandy. It is understood that the collection made at the meeting is to be handed over to the District Nurses' Fund. Previous to the entertainment, an item which excited great interest and merriment was arranged viz., a race between the mountaineers, in which most of them took part, the trophy -a. penny—being won by Mr. Tom Edwards, Tonypandy.
I il/IIV NJRnAN SOAP | Will MAKES LINEN SNOWY WHITE-and fragrant C. Hav# you been troubled with yellow stains on your linen ? Have you need to use a lot of blue water to get it white ? Then trouble no more, but read here how you can make your linen snowy white, pure and clean. ■ Cut a piece of Puritan Soap in two, and examine the < <« surface of the cut piece. Observe the hard, protecting layer. No matter whether the piece of Soap is new or has been used, you will always find this protecting layer, which prevents the soap from washing away. G Moisten the surface with a little hot water, and note the aromatic fragrance. It is the Olive Oil you 8mell- and it is the Olive Oil which gives linen washed with Puritan —the Olive Oil Soap-its old-fashioned fragrance. C And the reason why PURITAN SOAP I does not yellow linen is this: It contains no excess of W caustic. Caustic yellows linens and cottons. Puritan Soap cannot yellow linens if used alone. Ct And more. Note the slight greenish tinge ot Puritan Soap—due to the Olive Oil. The greenish colouring matter acts like blue water in whitening } A|K| linens without injury. fflpuKri How to wash Cottons and Linens If/ J with Puritan Soap Steep in cold water.

Round the World Tour. Treorchy Choir Starts Long Journey. Enthusiastic Send-Off. There were enthusiastic scenes at Treorohy on Thursday morning, when the Treorchy Royal Male Choir boarded the 6.35 train to start their twelve months' tour round the world. Numerous friends gathered early in the vicinity of the station, and as the train steamed out there was a lot of handkerchief waving and adieu bidding. The party journeyed to Ply- mouth and were expected to board the good ship Pericles about noon. Mr. WILLIAM THOMAS, Conductor Treorchy Royal Welsh Male I Choir. The present tour constitutes a record among Welsh choral societies. Numerous musical organisations have visited America and other parts of the world from time to time, but there is no record of any having undertaken such a "prolonged and world-wide tour as that now undertaken by Mr. William Thomas and his famous choir. The tour will include visits to all the important towns in Australia, where they have six months' engagements to fulfil. They will afterwards leave for Tasmania and New Zealand, and thence to Suca (Fiji Islands), afterwards crossing the Pacific 1: to Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto, and other leading Canadian cities. A visit to India and the Straits Settlements has also been hinted at. The choir is an organisation dating back twenty or more years. During its long career it has captured premier prizes at the National Eisteddfodau, has appeared before Royalty, and has traversed the whole of the United Kingdom, its per- formances being everywhere greeted with the highest encomiums. The party con- sists of 21 voices and have a repertoire of 73 selections. The soloists are —Tenors, Messrs. Todd Jones (Treherbert) and Robert Jones (Pentre); basses., Messrs. Aneurin Edwards (Treorchy), Dd. Davies (Pontypridd), and Trevor Lewis (Fern- dale). The accompanist is Mr. Hugh Hughes, G. & L., Treherbert. Previous to leaving the locality, the party gave several" farewell" concerts, which, despite the! sweltering weather, were exceedingly well attended. The first concert was given at Ton-Pentre on Thurs- day evening, a second followed at Tre- herbert on Saturday evening, whilst the final concert took place at Noddfa Chapel, Treorchy, on Monday night. At the latter place, complimentary references were made to the choir's im- pending departure by Councillors W. T. Jones, J.P., Ed. Jones, J.P. (chairman of the Rhondda District Council), and Dr. Wm. Morris. The first concert down under will be given at Melbourne.
