COUNTY COURT.—THURSDAY. Before His Honour Judge David Lewis. "GuoD IROX.Charles Jones, Newtown, sued Sarah Morgan, also of Newtown, for 17s 6d, the price of certain corrugated iron.—Mr Edward Powell was for the plaintiff and Mr T. M. Tavlor for the defendant.— Mr Powell, in opening the case, said that the plaintiff was at one time the tenant flf Mr Henry Morgan, draper, who was the defen- dant's brother, and as tne defendant intended to take the hou.se he had t", leave. He therefore went to the defendant and asked her if she would take to certain articles, such as window blinds, lioeoleum, etc., and she agreed to do so. A list of the things forced to be taken was made in pencil at the time, among them being the corrugated iron, the subject of the claim. In April last the defendant wrote intimating that she did not wish to take ;o the corruarated iron, as it made the placg so hot. The iron had been fitted upon the veranda at each end of the house, thus dividing the two houses.—The j plaintiff was called, aud deposed that the defendant I agreed to take the corr): "tied iron from the beginuiug. The iron was iu.„od to the verandah | in order to make the place hot. The plaintiff sub- j seqnentlv confessed, in the course of cross- examination, that it was put up ou account of a bad feeiing which existed between him and his neighbours.—Tne defendant was called, and said she did not agree to take the corrugated iron; it made the place so uncomfortably warm, and as it was fixed up by the plaintiff owing to some un- pleasant circumstances it was natural that she would not require it.—Judgment was given for the defendant, with costs. ACTION UFO-, A PROMISSORY Son;Clara Jones (widow), of the Moat farm, Llandinam, v Charles Jones, farmer, of Penarron, Kerry.—Mr. Edward Powell was for the pb;, -T. and Mr. Martin Woos- nam for the defendant. The claim was for £ 35 14s., money due on a promissory note.—T< o case came before His Honour Juoge Bishop at the April court, and as it was then stated that legal proceed- ings took p'ace at this Court some twelve months ago, before His Honour Judge Lewis, respecting the administration of the estate of the late Thomas Jones, the husband of the plaintiff. Mr. Woosnam contended that certain references were made to the promissory note in question, Judge Bishop ad- jourrtfed the present action for hearing before Judge L-wis.—The loan having been proved, Mr. Woos- nam submitted that he had a set-off of £31 7s. 6d. due for the maintenance of the illegitimate child ,.f the plaintiff's sister-in-law. In stating his case, Jr. Woosnam observed that the plaintiff's deceased husband arranged with the defendant to take to his house and there nurse the illegitimate child of the deceased's sister at the rate of 2s. 6d. a week. Up to May, 1891, a total sum of X32 10s. had been paid in respect of the child's maintenance. The promissory note was dated May 26th, 1391, which was transacted because the defendant had taken a larger farm, which therefore necessitated increased capital. From that date to the present no money had been paid by any person to the defendant for the main- tenance of the child, nor had the defendant paid anything-on account of the promissory notein respect of interest or principal. Some time before the death of the plaintiff's husband, the latter asked the defendant, in ti e course of a conversation, if he would continue to keep and rear the child for the amount of the promissory note, and although the defendant did not specifically agree to the pro- posed arrangement, nevertheless he acquiesced in the suggestion, and there was a tacit under- standing that he would rear the child for the 930. Those were the r.implefacts connected with the claim and counter-claim.—Mr. Powell denied that there was any such arrangement come to as stated by the defence.—After hearing the evidence of the plaintiff and defendant, His Honour gave a verdict for the plaintiff on both the claim and counter- claim. APPLICATION FOR A DISCHARGE IN BANKRUPTCY. —Mr Edward Powell applied for the discharge in bankruptcy of one Richard Jones, whose petition was filed in November, 1891. The bankrupt's liabilities amounted to £ 634 and his assets realised X114, and a dividend was paid to the creditors of 3s 4id in the pound. The bankrupt had been un- discharged for nearly five years there was nothing seriously charged against him, and his Honour would see from the particulars supplied him that the bankrupt rendered the Official Receiver every I assistance during the proceedings in bankruptcy. He was afraid that under Section 8 of the Bank- ruptcy Act and according to recent decisions that his Honour would be bound to suspend the dis- charge for two years from the date of the applica- tion, and that. therefore, it would be nearly seven years from the date of the filing of the petition be- fore the bankrupt got his discharge.—His Honour pointed out that be had never had a similar appli- cation brought before him without the presence of the Official Receiver, and that gentleman being- absent he would have to adjourn the application,
