The salary was fixed in October following, and the defendant told the plaintiff that he need not trouble about what was duo for the past as he would make a present of zC50 to him so soon as the company was started, but the company was never started and he never got the cheque but instead he received notice to quit.—The defendant said that the plaintiff was merely caretaker up to October, I and he never promised to pay him X50. He was not liable as the matter was now in the hands of the company, and he further said that onlv zEl5 odd was due.—His Honour gave judgment for plaintiff for £ 22 lis lid.—The same defendaut was sued by Messrs Williams and White for £ 7 6s I 3d, lor goods sold, and defendant said that in view of tue judgment jast given he would agree to dis- charge that debt.—Thomas Parker, Fox Vaults, was sued by Herbert Matthews for the sum I' of £ .3 15s 8d being the amount due for the supply of beef.

CAPEL BANGOR. RUNAWAY HORsEs.-On Wednesday a team of horses, the property of Mr. E. D. Jones, the Ex- change Capel, Bangor, were being driven to Aber- ystwyth, and passing under the Factory Railway Bridge the horses took fright at a passing train and overpowered the driver, who bad a narrow escape of being run over. Although one of the wheels got loose, they kept going at a fearful pace nntil they came to Llanbadarn, a distance of about a mile, where they were stopped by some masons working near. Though they met many traps, happily there was no collision. A woman who was in the waggon also escaped injury. This part of the railway is considered dargerous to timid horses and a great many accidents have occurred. There ought to be some warning given of approach- ing trains, and we have no doubt that if the atten- tion of the proper authorities were called to the matter it would receive the necessary attention.
