QUARTER SESSIONS. The Responsibilities of Magis- trates. It was an interesting coincidence of the Summer Quarter Sessions for Breconshire, held on Tuesday at Brecon, that whilst there were no prisoners for trial, most of the recently appointed magistrates attended to take the oaths of allegiance and impartiality. The magistrates present including those newly appointed) were the Hon R C Devereux (chairman), Mr J E Moore-Gwyn, Mr E Butler, Capt H Graystone, Mr A A Mitchell, Mr W F Parry deWinton, Mr Owen Price. Commander Alec Wilson, R.X., Messrs M T Davies, J W Jones, D P Hopkins. D J Davies. Jno. Harris, Jno. Morris, W H 0 Thomas, Idris Davies, J E Williams. T Williams (Ystradgynlais), T E James, Jos. Price, J L Davies. T P Jones, J Cater, Jno. Morgan. H T Price. B Davies, I Thomas, and C W Hughes. The Chairman remarked thai he felt he ought in the name of the senior justices to extend to the new magistrates a hearty welcome, whilst congratulating them on the honourable appoiutment which had been con- ferred upon them and congratulating the Court on the great accession of strength it had r 9 thereby received. As a member of the Advisory Committee, he felt himself at liberty to say that the names of the new justices were submitted to the Lord Chancellor because their activity and impartiality in district and county matters seemed to guarantee an equally faithful discharge of magisterial duties. He would like to say-and this applieJf not only to the new magistrates, but also to some of the old—that the office was uot merely an honorary one, but entailed certain responsibilities. Petty sessions for the ensuing twelve months were fixed at the begin- ning of each year, and there was no excuse for not knowing when they were a bout "to occur. L, y And certainly there was no excuse for treating them as an engagement only to be kept when there was nothing better to do. Now that an adequate addition had been made to the strength of each petty sessional division that seemed to require it. he hoped they would have no further complaints of difficulties in obtaining sufficient magistrates to form a bench. RATING APPEALS. Two appeals by William Rees Evans against poor rate -assessments made by the Merthyr Union Assessment Committee in respect of Blaenanthir and Gellytarw, in the parish of Pencleryn. were settled by agreement. Mr Washington Bowen, for the respondents, shied that the agreed terms were :—Gellitarw— Gross assessment on land reduced from £ 79 10s. to £ 08 15s.; ratable reduced from f75 10s. to £CG 10s.; gross assessment on buildings remaining at £ 11 5s. and ratable at £ 9.'

Mr \Y.1. Jones (Messrs Powell, Hughes and Jones, Brynmawr), appearing for the Brynmawr Gas. Company in an appeal against an assess- ment of gas mains at Brynmawr made by the Crickhowell Union Assessment Committee, ap- plied for a respite to the October Sessions, the respondents having asked for an adjournment owing to being unable to get their valuer's report in time. T. Yaughan, Crickhowell, for the re- spondents, said this was entirely a matter of expert advice, and when the experts met they might be able to make a suggestion acceptable to both parties. The respite was ordered.
TRECASTLE NOTES AND NEWS [By XOVUS Two of our local boys in khaki paid a short wisit to their homes last week end—Private Morgan Watkins, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Howell Watkins, of Llwynenn Farm, who is now partly recovered from severe wounds received soyie time ago somewhere in France and who has been recom- mended for discharge, and Private J. Donovan, R.F.A.. of Chapel street, Trecastle. who is on the eve of his departure to the fighting line in France. The news that farm hands will be allowed by the military authorities to remain on the land until the harvest is over was received with much satisfaction by all agriculturists in this locality. Farmers, under the Corn Production Act. have largely increased their ploughed land, which has been sown with seeds at high prices and inability to gather the crops after such an expensive outlay would be financially disastrous to a large number who have had to buy farming implements as well as their seeds at largely increased prices. This year's shearing is now over and sheep owners have been fortunate in having good wenther to get their wool clipped and washed in excellent candition, enabling them to ask the highest price offered by the Wool Purchase Department. The frosty nights we had in the early part of last week played havoc with gardens in close proximity to the rivers and the produce has been much damaged in some cases even ferns alongside the river banks have been so much touched" that they already wear their autumnal tints.

High street, was charged by the Local Food Control Committee with selling dates at the rtte,of If() per lb., the controlled price being (id. per lb. —Mr H. Oliver, Llandrindod Wells, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr E. P. Careless. Llandrindod Wells, for the defence.—Miss Blanche Thomas stated that on the day of the second May Fair she purchased half-a-pound of dates from Mrs Straffen, and paid fld. On the following Thursday witness asked Mrs Straffen if she had not made a mistake in the price of the dates. Mrs Straffen then denied having served witness, but eventually gave her back Gd. to make up for any overcharge.—Cross- examined, witness admitted that the shop was full of customers, and that she could not dis- tinguish between Persian dates and others and did not ask for any particular kind.—Mr Care- less pointed out that Mrs Straffen had three kinds of dates in the shop, and in the rush of business Miss Thomas was served with dates from a certain box and was charged the correct price.—The Bench dismissed the case. Aeroplanes from Builth Wells. From the way the inhabitants of Builth and district have supported the efforts of the War Savings Committee it js evident that sufficient money will be forthcoming to purchase a dozen or more aeroplanes. 18,000 has already been invested, and the aeroplane campaign has not yet reached its climax.

I YOUNG GLASBURY HERO. I -• ) The deepest sympathy for the family has been arotrsed in Glasbury by the reception of the news of the death of Pte. William Jones, of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry, who fell in action in France on June 20th. Private Wm.

Before joining up he had worked in the Gwernyfed gardens. At home, at school, and at work he had always been a good boy he y 11 became a bellringer and communicant, and was a faithful Scout.

He received a military funeral and lies near the rest camp, where his chums can always see to his grave when out of action." *The news of Pte.
