I rt% SUMMER HEADACHES. Is your life made miserable by An occasional headache ? The' cause explained. No life is a truly happy one unless it is accompanied by good health. And how many lives are made miserable by nothing more than occasional headaches ? In course of time these may become chronic or periodical, and then life is unbearable indeed. The more frequent forms of headache are a dull pain across the forehead, due to dyspepsia a pain in the back of the head, due to the liver a bursting pain in both temples, due to malnutrition and an ache on the top of the head, as though a weight pressed on the skull, due to overwork. No regular drinker of Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa need ever fear an attack of dyspepsia, or chronic indiges- tion, for it is not only naturally self- digestive in itself, but it is also one of the surest aids to digestion yet discover- ed. And sluggish derangements of the liver and spleen, too, will be much bene- fited by it. Vi-Cocoa is the most nutritious food- beverage known, and as it can be easily .SAX' P"c e assimilated by all-young, old, and those in the prime of life, every particle of it goes to nourish the body. After brain-fag or overwork it is the- finest restorative, and a sixpenny packet is within the reach of all.

Jones (one of the de- putation): Yes.—Mr Lloyd-Prioe Don't you think mining would be far more profitable there than Welsh?—Mr Jones: There are a great many in the district who don't understand: Welsh, though they are Welshmen; they are half Webh and half English.—It was decided to eli- minate the Welsh class, but to retain that in mining.

CHARGE WITHDRAWN.—Sidney Fearnall, an ex-soldier, appeared at the Petty Sessions, on Saturday,to answer a charge of being drunk when in charge of a horse on June 6th. Supt. Jones pointed out that defendant had been before the Bench since the date in question on another charge, and the police were prepared to with- draw the present summons. The Chairman (Mr Chancellor Bulkeley Jones) said the Bench ac- quiesced, and hoped they would not see him there again. In reply to Mr Wood, Fearnall said that he was now working. "A RELIEF TO THE POLICE AND BENCH. On Saturday, at the Petty Sessions, two charges of drunkenness were brought against Gertrude Mary Bullowes. Mr E. A. Crabbe, who appeared for defendant, pleaded guilty, and said he had no- thing to say only that it would be a relief to the Bench and police to know that Mrs Bullowes was leaving the neighbourhood. She showed contri- tion for the state into which she got on the two occasions in question, and he appealed that the Bench would deal as leniently as possible with her. Five previous convictions were proved, and in respect of each animal and costs was imposed. REMOVAL OF SHEEP.-William Cragg, of Bryn Euryn farm, was charged before the local justices,, on Saturday, with removing on the 10th June eight sheep from Bryn Euryn to Old Col- wyn Show, without having them dipped within 28 days, as required under the Act. P.C. Owen gave evidence. Defendant said he did not under- stand that a licence was necessary to have sheep removed from one place to another in the same county. The sheep had not come into contact with any others, as they were taken out of the cart and put straight into the pen. A fine of 6d per head for each animal and costs was im- posed. DRUNK.—On Saturday, at the Petty Sessions, David Evans, Waenhyfryd Windmill, was fined 5s and costs for being drunk in Rhos-road, on June 20th. The case was proved by P.C. David Jones. For a similar offence, on the same occa- sion, Edward Parry, Park-road, was mulcted in the sum of 2s 6d and costs. DONKEY STRAYING.-At Saturday's Police Court, Thomas Wharton, 68, Grove Park, was charged with allowing a donkey to stray in Wood- hill-road, on June 25th. Defendant pleaded not guilty. P.C. H. Jones proved the offence, and a fine of 2s 6d and costs was imposed. A HORSE'S MAD GALLOP.—At mid-day on Monday a horse attached to a float belonging to Messrs Ind, Coope and Co., which was standing outside the shop, suddenly bolted up Station-road at a furious pace. The bridle was off its head when it started, so that it was impossible to chock it in the usual way. Sergeant Rees made an unsuccessful effort to do so. P.C. H. Jones, who was standing at the top of the street, saw the horse approaching, and called upon the people to keep the road clear. When he found that the horse had no bridle, he threw his stick at it, almost bringing it down. The animal, however, regained its feet and careered along Abergele-road, turning into Douglas-road, and then along a back road lead- ing into Rhiw Bank-avenue. Thence it made for East Parade, followed this time by a crowd of cyclists and oth 3rs. When it came into Green- field-road, it had practically "run itself to a standstill," and was easily checked by Sergeant Rees and several railway porters. There were hundreds of people about at the time, and that no one was injured was remarkable. It was equally noteworthy that neither horse nor float were any the worse for the escapade. YOUNG LADY BATIIERS IN TROUBLE. —Some ero.H^ment was caused on the promenade early on Friday morning, when three young lady bathers from one of the local schools were taken out of the water in a somewhat excitablo oondition. A party of five young scholars en- tered ttie water at about 9.30. 1'wo of them waded out for a distance of fifty or sixty yard" and got out of their depth. Not being able to swim they were in some danger because the tide was on the ebb, and a strong land breeze blew. One of the older girls went to their as- sistance, but in the excitement of the moment they pulled her down also. Mr Owen, pro- prietor of the bathing machines, quickly mount- ed one of his horses, and swam out to their assistance, and a boat was also launched by several boatmen, the girls being eventually res- cued. Two of them were able to proceed im- mediately to dress, but the third was in a more exhausted condition. A doctor and the nolicQ were quickly sent for, and Dr. W. M. V enables Villiams arrived within five minutes. Assisted by P.C. H. Jones (64) he applied artmcial re- f iration, the child speedily recovering. On mday, at St. Paul's Church a prayer of anksgiving ffir the children's dejiveranoe waa fcffered ur at the morning service. P.C. H. Jones was made the recipient of a handsome present for his assistanoe on the oooasion. It is understood that the services of the boatmen and others who gave assistance were also prao- «ic_lly acknowledged. NO LIGHT. At the Petty Sessions, on Saturday, P.C. R. Evans charged William Howe, Junr., York-road, with driving a horse and milk cart in Station-road, at 10.30 p.m. on July 4th, without a light.. Mr T. H. Morgan appeared for defendant and pleaded guilty. A fine of 2s 6d and costs was imposed.

A letter was read from defendant to plaintiff, in which he said the horse had fallen down in the stable, and had to be raised by means of a "pulley" (laughter).—The Judge gave judgment far defendant

ITie explanation was that the man had been fighting with other inmates in the Cardiff Workhouse and that accounted for the blood and marks on his face. On the doc- tor's recommendation he was removed to Holy- well, an official accompanying him to Chester, and then placing him in charge of the guard. He gave the man money to pay his fare to Holywell, and also for refreshment. The man told the official he would go to his wife at Flint. The Chairman said he thought the explanation was satisfactory. They could not compel the man to enter the workhouse. The Guardians were otherwise unanimous in the opinion that it was not satisfactory, as they did not consider the official was justified in leaving the man to take care of himself after accompanying him to Chester. The Master stated the man died from malignant disease of tho stomach.

CHARGE OF ROBBING A MOTHER.—After a long hearing the trial was concluded on Monday evening of Walter Jones, who was charged with stealing £ 7180 from his mother, Elizabeth Tatum, aged 75, formerly of Mold, and now living at Rhosddu, near Wrexham. Mr Downes Powell, for the prosecution, called evidence showing that the defendant, who is a married man with a large family, went to his mother's house at Mold on February 19th, when his mother was ill in bed. The mother alleges that her son was the cause of her taking some liquor, after which she felt sick. When he went into the bedroom the de- fendant kissed his mother, but afterwards, as she states, broke open a box and took away 180 sovereigns. For the defence Mr Marston said that the defendant denied all knowledge of the affair. The magistrates committed the defend- ant to the Assizes or Quarter Sessions and allowed bail. On hearing this the defendant fainted, fell to the floor with a heavy thud, and had to be carried out of court. POLICE "TRAP" FOR MOTORISTS. The first batch of prosecutions in Flintshire following the complaints against the speed of motorists which were made at a meeting of the Standing Joint Committee, came forward at HIJt Mold Petty Sessions, on Monday, before Mr F. T. Davies-Cooke and other magistrates. Mr Marston, who appeared on behalf of the police in all the cases, explained that these pro- ceedings had been brought in consequence of many complaints made by the public generally; and the police were instructed that motorists who drove to the danger of the public, or who ex- ceeded the speed-limit of twenty miles, should be brought before the magistrates. On Whit- Tuesday a "trap" was set by the Mold police on the Mold and Denbigh-road, and at each end of a measured mile two police officers were stationed with stop-watches. The result was that four prosecutions had been undertaken. A large part of the mile was through the populated por- tion of the town known as Maesydre, where children were frequently playing on the main road. The watch was conducted from three to five in the afternoon. F. G. Wade, Stookport-road, Timperley, George Burke, of Stanley-street, Liverpool, and Thomas Davies, Bryn Awel, Llangollen, were each fined 40s and costs. The charge against Ernest Hen- shaw, of Chatham-street, Liverpool, was dia- missodt
ST. ASAPH COUNTY COURT. A DEFENDANT FINED. AGED NEIGH,BOURS' DIFFERENCES. This court was held on Friday, before his Hoinour Judge Moes. A QUESTION OF COSTS. Mr Gasoodine, solicitor, Prestatyn, called his Honour's attention to a decision as to costs given in a case heard at the previous court. He said when he left he understood that h;6 Honour had given judgment for the plaintiff for 10s, with costs to follow, but when he at- tended the taxation proceedings he was surprised to find that, the costs had been limited to 10s. His Honour said that an application had been made to him. and the order made must, stand. Mr Gasoodine said it was very hard on his client, and seeing that the order was made in his absence he thought the matter should be re- opened. The Judge said that he did not blame Mr Gasoodine, but he made the order at the same court. Mr Gaeccdine submitted, with all respect, that once a solicitor had obtained judgment, and an order made, it was unreasonable to expect that he should remain in court throughout the day on the off-chance of having the order varied. His Honur declined to re-open tha matter. A DEFENDANT FINED. Mr Rowlands (from Mr J. Pierce Lewis' office, Rhyl) appeared for four plaintiffs in judgment summonses against George Lever Maurice, formerly of Rhyl, but now of Liscard. He ex- plained that the defendant had been given con- duct money amounting to JB1 12s 6d in respect of four cases, the debts being for furniture, greengrocery, millinery and money lent. A soEc i tor 8 clerk, who had succeeded in serving the summonses, had gone over from Rhyl to Liscard, and there served defendant. The latter then said that during the two years he was in Rhyl, and acted as a metal broker, he had made JB750 per annum, but he had been paying off debts, and now he was in business on his own account, and was getting his trade back again, having an office in Preescwi's-row, Liverpool, and living at Liscard. He would receive money from the interest under a settlement of his father's will, but he could not touoh the princi- pal. Although the defendant had been before the oourt twelve months last January he had c.nly pa d J61 in respect of a judgment then, and he owed E33 3s 6d in respect of furniture. The defendant had promised to make a settlement. While the Judge was considering the matter a telcg'ram arrived from the defendant, and his Honour said he had wired to say that through illness he had miesed the train. He asked that the oases might be adjourned, and added that he was writ'.ng. The Judge said he would fine the defendant J35. but would not enforce it until the next court, giving the defendant a chance of appear- ing and explaining matters. He would make orders for the defendant's committal, suspended so long a, he paid in all JB4 per month. DEBT PURCHASER'S EXPENSES. Mr Joseph Lloyd applied to his Honour for direction as to taxation in a case where a firm had purchased the debts of a tradesman. He pointed out that although the tradesman re- sided at Prestatyn, and the firm who purchased the debts resided in Cheshire, the Registrar had allowed railway fare from Cheshire. He con- tended that the firm who purchased debts should not be placed in a better position as regards ex- penses than was the orginal owner of the debts. Ln some courts the debt purchaser was treated as the original owner, and that he cccsidered was the right course to pursue. His Honour ag'reed, and directed that the firm purchasing the debts should be only allowed the same railway fare as would be given to the original owner of the debts. ALLEGED BREACH OF CONTRACT. A peculiar oaee was heard in which Mr Wm. Owen, of Tanygier, Llannefydd. sued Thomas Williams, labourer, Llawendai Bach, St.. Asaph, for JS2 10s damages for al-eged breach of con- tract. Mr E. A. Crabbe, Abergele, a.ppeared for tihe plaintiff, and Mr Joseph Lloyd, Rhyj, for the defendant. Mr Crabbe said the plaintiff had a farm at Llannefydd, on which there were a number of rabbits. He usually sold the rabbits for £ 2 106, but in December last he arranged with the de- fendant that, if he would cut the gorse on the farm, as plantiff required it for feeding pur- poses. he would give him permission to kill what rabbits he required. Defendant did cut the gor. o on two occasions, but after working a third morning, and having had his dinner, plaintiff complained to him that he had not properly cut the glorse, and asked him to cut more. De- fendant, who had obtained a better job at the m lis. said lie did not intend to cut any more gorse as he coud not catch rabbits, having lost his ferret. Plaintiff replied that he must get another ferret, but defendant left, and the plain- tiff had had to cut the gonse himself, and no one else would take the rabbits as a ferrett had already been used. He (Mr Crabbe) had writ- ten to the defendant oalling upon him to come and cut the gorse, and telling him that the plain- tiff would claim JE2 10s damages unless he car- ried out his contract. Defendant took no notice of the letter. Plaintiff bore out his advocate's statement, and added that he sent a man to tell defendant to come and cut the gorse. The Judge said he failed to see how the plain- tiff could claim damages on acoount of the rabbits. If there was any claim at all it was because plaintiff had to gtet other men to cut the gorse. but he still had his rabbits. The Judge paid that seeing that the defendant had broken his contract there was nothing to prevent the ple"ntiff going on with the killing of the rabbits. Defendant said the reason he did not cut the gorse was that "plaintiff set his own men on to work, after he went to a job for a t.ime where he got money with which to keep his family. He only caught three rabbits." In cross-examination, the defendant de.n:ed that the plaintiff had sent a man to him teeing him to come and cut the g'orse. It was true the man came to him. but all he asked him was Ir to out his hair (laughter). The Judge said he considered that the plain- tiff had sustained some damage through not hav- ing the goTBO cut, but he did not think that it amounted to B2 10s. He gave judgment for plaintiff for 10s, to be pad in a month. AGED NEIGHBOURS' DIFFERENCES. The oourt was occupied for a couple of hours in dealing with a complicated case in which Mr Samuel Denson, Plasmawr, Newmarket, sued Mr Henry Elmes, Bodlonfa, St. Asaph, for Jb3 9s 9d. tIle price of goods sold and delivered, and money paid into oourt. Mr Cioment Jones appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Marsden for the defendant. The ceuso was one of accounts between the pavties ind the difference in the price of pota- toes supplied to the defendant. It ran as far back as i905, and the plaintiff alleged that he h,'è ret as id to sell hay and potatoes to the de- fendant at 2s 6d per cwt., but dd afterwards seil him a quantity at 3s 6d per cwt. He further al- leged that the defendant went to his farm while lie (plaintiff) was away and tcok a quantity of potatoes. Ho claimed the return from the court of 15s which he hid paid in under a judgment obtained against him by the defendant lJ1 respect of the services of a shire horse. He said that when the case w&e lleaxd judgment went tgaill6t him because he could not find a reccipt for the 15s, which he alleged he had paid, but after paying the money to the oourt he found the re- ceipt, and he now sued for the return. He claimed 5s which he said he had overpaid to the defendant. He 'had given defendant half a sovereign to discharge a debt of 5s, but as de- fendant had no change he promised to send back 5s, which had not been done. The defendant, on the other hand, denied that he had ever taken potatoes from the defen-' dant's farm in his absence, but admitted that he still owed for some potatoes. Ho said he had paid plaintiff ,14s and 18s, for whiah he had not been credited, and that the 15s paid into court was in respect of an entirely different transaction to that which plaintiff alleged. As regards the 5 it had nothing to do with the amount he said plaintiff owed him, being the wages of his son and himself for thrashing for one day, and the 10s plaintiff had pa d him was for two other days' thrashing. The Judge said it seemed to him that these two old men would go on fighting for years un- less they came to some agreement. He thought two neighbours such as they should sliake hands and settle the matter out of court. Mr Marsden said he was prepared to cry "quits," but he contended that the oocotliita showed that plaintiff really owed defendant 2s 6d. After the defendant's acm and his wife ihad given evidence, the Judge said it was to be re- gretted that after a previous court the parties had not "buried the hatchet," as they were too old to go on quarrelling. As neighbours they should be friends. He had worked out the ac- oounts as best as he could, and he awarded plaintiff Ll Is. He hoped that after that the parties would be friends. In arriving at that decision be considered that tl-e. price agreed upon for tho potatoes was 3s 6d per owt., but ho also ,found that the 15s paid iato oourt by plain- tiff had nothing to do with the ease before him. No doubt, eaoih party honestly believed wbftfc be aaidi but both had mode mistaken

CpLWYN BAY PETTY SESSIONS. A BIRMINGHAM MANUFACTURER'S RAILWAY JOURNEY. GUTTA PERCHA ON A HORSE WHIP. In the absence of Mr Kneeshaw (the chair- man) Chancellor Bulkeley Jones presided over this Court on Saturday, i'he other justioes pre- sent were Mr J. catkin Lumley, Mr David Gamble, Mr Wm. Jones, Rev. Thos. Parry, Mr J. W. Rayner,, Mr Joseph Smith, with tha Ckrk (Mr Jamtas Amphlett). Tillii CHAIRMAN S BEREAVEMENT. At the outset the Clerk read the following letter from. the Chairman of the Bench (Mr Kneeshaw): I have to thank the magistrates siting in Petty Sessions at Colwyn Bay, and tiie solicitors attending the COUTt fur their sym- pathetic lefeienoe to the sudden bereavement that has befallen me The numerous tributes to the kindly and generous qualities of my dear wife are mUlCh appreciated Dy me, and none more so than that of my brother justices of Colwyn Bay. RAILWAY TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET. Geo. L. Rothschild described as a manufacturer, of 29, Rotten Park-rd., Edgbastcn, Bir r ingham, was charged by Detective W. A. Hughes, of Bangor, with travelling without a ticket, and with intent to avoid payment of the fare be- tween Chester and Colwyn Bay on May 26th. Mr Su-tytivo, (from the solicitor's department, Eust.on), for tho prosecution, stated that the facts of the case would, he felt sure, satisfy the a3nch that a very deliberate attempt had been made by the defendant to defraud the Railway Company. At 7.SO p.m. on May 2oth the defendant was found seated in a train at Llandudno Junction. He occupied a third class compartment, and when the ticket collector asked for his ticket he said he wanted to pay his fare from Colwyn Bay to Llandudno, '1'he collector (a porter) mad(c out an excess receipt as suggested, and defendant paid him 7 £ d for it. When the porte-r asked him for the platform ticket which he should havejiad at the Colwyn Bay station, defendant said, "'I'hey did not give mo one." Asked how he got on to the plat- form defendant replied, "In the ordinary way and no one asked mo for a ticket. At the porter's request he then gave his name and address, and remarked, "ihey don't know me at Colwyn Bay." Defendant then continued his journey to Llandudno, and at about 8.30 he ap- peared to have gone to the booking office there, where he saw the chief clerk. To the latter he spoke of travelling that day from Mold to Chester, and said that when he got to the lat- ter place he got into a train with the intention of alighting at Colwyn Bay to see a customer, and afterwards P/roooociling to Llandudno for tho night. He added that when askod at Llan- dudno Junction for his ticket he told the po:- t^r that he had come from Colwyn Bav quite forgetting at tihat moment that he had traveleld from Chester without a ticket. On the 27th ult. one of the company's ticket inspectors (Swann) in oonsequence of information received, approached the defendant at Liandudno Junc- tion, and to him the latter repeated practically the same story, adding that he had made a mistake because he had become "mixed up." Mr E. A. Crabb3 (for the defendant) inti- mated that in order to shorten the case he would agree to every word said by Mr Smythe with the exception of what had been said in re- gard to the platform ticket. Robert Tliomas Williams, porter at Llan- dudno Junction, bore out the hrst part of the adlvocate's statement. Cross-examined by Mr Crabbe, witness said that when questioned on tho matter, defendant said, "I did not get a platform ticket at Col-' wyn Bay." Witness then asked him for his ticket from beyond that point. Detendant re- plied, "I came from Colwyn Bay, and they did not give me a platform ticket as 1 came in." By Mr Lumley: lie had never worked a.t the Colwyn Bay station, but he knew the de- fendant should have had a platform ticket be- fore he entered on the station platform. Mr Crabbe I can say from my own personal experience that that is not always done. Thomas Herbsrt Port, chief booking clerk at Llandudno railway station, gave corroborative evidenoo. Alfred Brooks, ticket inspector, repeated the conversation which had taken place between tho defendant and Ticket Inspector Swann on th.) 27th. Defendant, who was sworn in the Jewish manner, said he had travelled all over England, Scotland, and Wales during the last 20 yea s, and he had never previously been accused ot defrauding a railway company. He was a part- ner in the firm which he represented, but dur- ing eight months of the year he travelled. On the day in question he had tjeen to Oswestry, Chester, Wrexham, and Mold, and when he came along to Colwyn Bay lie had had no time to book. He was particularly anxious to get to Colwyn Bay that evening to see a customer, but on his arrival there he saw by (he station clock that it was 7.20 p.m., and therefore too late for him to see the person. He then de- uu cided to proceed to Llandudno. His whole mind had been bent on Colwyn Bay, and it was to that one fact that he laid the mistake he made at Llandudno Junction when he asked for a ticket from Colwyn Bay to Llandudno. Ha had had a very heavy day, and the whole thing had happened owing to temporary loss of n-lan-iary. Immediately lie realised his mis- take-whioh was on the way to Llandudno-hc went to the chief booking clerk, and offered to pay his proper fare. Cross-examined by Mr Smythe: He had never had his name and address taken before. Mr Lumley: Did not the question asked you for your platform ticket from Colwyn Bay re- mind you in any way ? Defendant: No. After Mr Crabbe had addressed the Bench for the disfendant, Tiie Chairman said. We have found the de- fendant guilty of this offenoo, and some of my colleagues think that the way in which he has excused himself rather aggravates the offence. We fine him the full penalty of 40s and costs. AN UNLICENSED CARRIAGE. David Robert Roberts,. a Colwyn Bay drive: was summoned for driving a carriage on hire without a lioenoo, while the carriage owner, Anne Jane Whitney (trading as Homan and Co.) was summoned for causing the vehicle to be so used without a lioenoe. Mr E. A. Crabbe prosecutod on behalf of tho Colwyn Bay Urban District Council. Carriage Inspector G. P. Roberts gave evi- denoe to seeing the defendant Roberts "go to a party and ask for the fare" in Abergele- road, and to speaking to him about it. No li- oonoo had been taken out' by the driver nor the owner. Roberts waa fined la and oosts, and the owner lOa and oogts. FARM SERVANT WARNED. David Wynne, a young farm servant, for- merly employed by Owen WiTliams, of Llan- elian, as teams man, was ordered to pay the latter £ 1 and 118 cost-s for a br^^ach of his &z- vioe contract. Mr E. A. Crabbs was for the complainant. Owen Williams said he was a farmer and tljnt a. 1I e beginning 'of last February, when the defendant called upon him, he was emuloyed until the 12th May at a wage of 10s ner week and his food. Defendant was not T0- amrasred at Eglwysbach fa r. but took work at Mvnydd Fartn, Liandudno, wnero he remained for four -or five hours (laughter) He W.6 after- wards at Me fod Farm, Oolwyn Bay, for a week w ,V ^o/e"einga,god hlm for a at a on Ll Hort<?ver, defendant left on January 25th without notice, and as they f Snt ,n? abc>ut the W that very day he (witness) w.a very muoli inoonvenienwxl. After considerable trouble he was able to engage another man at a wage of £ 1 per week and his [cod. He n.ow e a'mf'd £ 3 damages, because it would cost. him 30s more to get his hay in, and ean^P amount for the ccr.n harvest, because tne defendant left a* he did. The defendant « .ou d have given a tmomth's notice to determine the contract. CW-examined by the defendant, witness de- nied breaking any rules agreed upon when he was engaged. Mr Crabbe cbserved that. the case had not been taken up with the object of getting a.ny rconev from the defendant, but merely to serve a« a warning to him and others that farmers snculd not be treated in that manner. Ln reply to the Bench, defendant said he was not regularly employed at present, but was engae-ed haymaking' at intervals. An order for ti and costs was maae. Defendant w-s given a mouth in wh-cl to pay the fine. » GUTTA PERCHA ON A HORSE WHIP. A voung lad named Edgar Hmdley, of Haw. arden-road, Colwyn Bay, employed by Mears Snrcston and Co., fishnierchants, etc., was charged at the instmoe of Inspecsor Gibbs, of the R.S.P.C.A., with cruelty to a mare on June 10th. /defendant pleaded ''Not guilty I^Dector Gibbs said at 3.^5 on June 10th he saw the de.erxlant in charge of a chestnut ma e dody proceeoing at a trot along Abergek-r«ad. Defendant was continually beating the animal with a whip very heavily. Every time the Jash came in con: act with the animal it plunged. He stopped the defendant, and eaid he was cruel to the animal. Defendant repiied, "I did hit, it a few times, as it would not go fast enough. He then examined the mare, and found it in a poor oondition. On the flesh he found ten punctured wounds, which Were bleed- me\ and he drew defendant's attention to the blood ooz ng out from the wounds. He exam- jned the whip, and found that at the end was a bit of eutta, percha, and pointed out to de- fendant that this itself would "take pieces out of the horse." Defendant replied that he did not th;.nk it would do so. add ng that Mr Pick- er.ng. saddler, had put it on that morning. He fw.tness) did not quite believe thiq, and he took the lad w;th h:m to Mr Pickering's fchop, there relating what defendant had said. Mr Pi dor- Ïng- remarked, "Yes, I did put it on." Witness nointed out that if used severely it would draw blcod. Mr Pickering promised that he would not. sell it aga,n. Defendant: How many times did I hit the horse?—I fay about s:x times. How many wounds were there on the horse?— Ten minctured wounds. P.C. Hugh Jones corroborated the evidence of the inspecior. and produced the gutta percha which he took off the whip. Defendant said that at tne time mentioned be was iust returning from Rhos, and whe.n oppo- Bide Arundlie's shop the horse began to jib. A train was ooniing- along, and he touched the honn two or three times with the whip, which made a sort of crack. He then drove to the shot). Just as he turned round the inspector came ud and said, "You have been -inning that hor9" too fast; look hcv it is swe i-ng.1' Wit- ness replied that- the horse wns short-win^d, and auickly sweated. When the horse was ex- amined there was only a wound half-inch long. Under the horse's flank there were fourteen old soabs. Two assistants and himself examined the ho-se the same day. The Chairman: There 's .no doubt whatever you have been cruel towards this horse on the evi- dence we have heard. You are only a young Ifid. and we c-uld fine you as heav.ly as £ 5 and ec.ats. but we arc going to let you off rather iiehilv. Now we fine you 10s and ccs's. and the justices wish never to s'e you here again. Turning to Inspector G bbs, the Chair- man said. "I think, inspector, you must see the ecnDlover." When asked if he could pay the fine the de- fendant 6aid his employers would do eo.

Despite wet weather, the opening of the Olympic games inaugurated by the King at the Stadium in London, on Monday, furnished a magnificent spectacle. There was a great assem- blage of Royalties, and the King and Queen were accorded a splendid welcome. There are 20 nations represented in the games, and the 1800 athletes made an imposing parade before their Majesties. On the opening day of the Bisley rifle meet- ing Captain Rankin made what is probably: a world's record, by scoring 28 bull s-eyeõ in duo- pension at 900 yard*.
FESTINIOG UNION BOARD OF GUARDIANS. INSURANCE MONEY AND OUT-RELIEF. The fortnightly meeting of the above Board was held on Tuesday, and it was attended by Messrs Owen Jones (chairman), William Jones (vice-chairman) William Williams, D. Fowden Jones, W. W. Morris, D. Pugh. Richard Williams. M. E. Morris, R. Evans, D. Tegid Jones, Ro- bert Richards, John Roberts, Talsarnau; Owen Evans, Edward Llewelyn, R. A. Vaughan, M. Jones, J. Williams, M. Roberts, J. Pierce, and Thomas Roberts (clerk). A PAUPER'S INSURANCE MONEY. When the Board were considering the case of a deceased pauper whose funeral expenses amounted to JE14 15s 3d, the relieving officer, replying to the Chairman, said that he had en- quired as to the amount of insurance money paid to deceased's wife. Mr R. Richards proposed that the clerk should ask the Insurance Society for particulars of the amount paid in the case referred to by the Board. Mr Fowden Jones seconded, and it was passed. THE CASE OF A HOSPITAL PATIENT. Mr William Thomas, the relieving officer, re- ported that he had given relief in kind to the family of a man who had been sent to a Liver- pool hospital. The Chairman said the Board's medical officer did net advise sending the man to the hospital, but another doctor advised differently. Mr Richards Who paid the expenses of send- ing the man to the hospital? The Relieving Officer: The Congregational Church, to which the patient belonged, gave him a ticket and the travelling expenses, and his brother guaranteed payment at the hospital for a month. The relief granted bv the officer was confirmed. THANKS. Dr. Carey Evans, the newly appointed medical officer for Trawsfvnydd district, thanked the Board for the appointment. COUNTY CALLS. The Merioneth County Council sent a precept for the payment of £ 4600. The Chairman: Out of that amount Festiniog pavs £3243. THE TRAWSFYNYDD MEDICAL OFFICER. The Clerk showed that the payment to the new public vaccinator for Trawsfynvdd district would have to be reconsidered. As the payment was based upon mileage, Dr. Evans, who resided at Blaenau and not in Trawsfynydd, could olaim more fees than if he resided in the district. The Chairman: Dr. Evans must have a surgery in the district. Mr Tegid Jones: But you cannot compel him to reside in the district. The Chairman It is in the advertisement. Mr Tegid Jones You cannot under the terms of the advertisement request Dr. Evans to reside in the district. i, The Chairman: We can compel him to open a surgery there A COMPLAINT. Mr W. C. Logan, Hendre, wrote drawing at- tention to an alleged nuisance caused by a drain belonging to the Board, and which mtht through a field near his residence. The clerk had written to the county surveyor drawing his atten- tion to the matter, and asking permission to lay pipes in the roadway. The surveyor, in his reply, did not say a word about granting per- mission to open the road. At the suggestion of the Chairman it was re- solved to open the road at once, and the county surveyor should be informed of the course taken. WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE? The relieving officers reported the amounts col- lected by them from relatives of paupers, and the amounts outstanding. Mr R Richards asked what was the reason for the arrears. The Chairman: The tender feelings of the Guardians Mr Richards: Somebody is to be blamed. The Chairman: Will you move a resolution condemning the Board of which you are a mem- ber? (laughter). Mr Richards: I think it is time we should wake up. The Chairman: You had better propose a re- solution calling upon the Board to wake upl (loud laughter). The relieving officers bring the cases before us, but we adjourn them. Mr William Thomas (one of the relieving officers): I We have not had an opportunity to re- port for nine months. EXTRAVAGANT FUNERAL EXPENSES. Mr Fowden Jones proposed that any person re- ceiving insurance money after a deceased pauper, should not receive any relief for three or six months. At present, he contended, the insur- ance money was ent on extravagant funerals, and the widows of the deceased paupers applied for out-relief afterwards. If the poor knew that they could not get out-relief for some months after the death of a pauper they would be more careful with the insurance money paid them. The Chairman fully appreciated the principle embodied in Mr Fowden Jones's motion, but he opposed the resolution because it could not be carried out. A resolution of the kind could not interfere with the right of the Board to consider every case on its merit. At the same time he believed that a strong resolution condemning the spending of a large sum of money on the funerals of paupers would be beneficial. The poor should be informed that the Board would always take into consideration, when a widow applied for out- relief, what she had done with the insurance money received. Mr Fowden Jones acceded to the Chairman's suggestion, and a motion to that effect was passed.
