E. Morgan Jones." TRAMP CHARGED WITH HousEER]EAKING-" I only want to give sufficient evidence for a remand of eight days to enable the police to make inquiries as to his character," said Sergt. Hughes at the Police Court last Tuesday, when a tramp, who gave his name as John Jones, Gilfach Goch, Glamorganshire, and his occupation as a seaman, was brought up in custody on an indictable charge. The accusation was that of breaking into the house of Mr William Wynne, Salop-road, the previons afternoon. The Mayor (Mr T. J. Evans) and Mr Maurice Jehu sat on the Bench. Of At 7-15 p.m. last night, your Worships," said P.C. Thomas Jones, I, in company with P.C. Williams, arrested the prisoner. We found him in a hay- loft, covered with hay, in an outbuilding belonging to Mr Green, The Moors. I told him the nature of the charge, and brought him to Welshpool, and locked him up." The accused had nothing to say in Court, and the remand was granted. In the Court-room there sat Mrs and Miss Johnson, next- door neighbours to Mr and Mrs Wynne, and the Sergeant said he had a witness, who would identify the man, who was seen at the back of the premises where he was alleged to have broken into. The Sergeant also showed the magistrates a basket, containing a loaf of bread, partly dbmolished, to- gether with a quantity of grocery.

Another Charles Howell Memorial.—The end nearest the town of the roadside waste by the canal in Berriew-street. is now adorned with a rectangular drinking trough, wrought of Aberdeenshire polished red granite.

This drinking trough is erected by his brother and sisters, 1910. Have pity on the animals." Something New.—Alter the parish church service last night, members nf the Church of England Men's Society held an open-air mission meeting in Brook-street, opposite Powell's-row. The Rev D. Grimaldi Davis, D.D. ,vicar of the parish, acted as leader, and Messrs Pryce (Oldford-terrace) and Crabtree (the Grammar School) gave ad- dresses. There was a crowd of between 100 and 150 standing on the road, whilst a num- ber of the Powell's-row housewives stood looking and listening intently from their doorsteps. Personal.—Wednesday, June 29th, is the date fixed for the marriage of Miss Edith Maud Harrison, second daughter of Mr and Mrs G. D .Harrison, Fronllwyd, and the Rev Herbert E. Cooke, vicar of Stoneleigh, Warwickshire. The ceremony will take place in .St. Mary's Parish Church, and extensive arrangements are being made for a two days' local celebration of the event. A Historic Precedent.—Speaking at the Welshpool Town Hall on November llth, 1894 (with regard to a question of inter- mediate education), Councillor Forrester Addie said a, public meeting should be called, so that an expression of opinion could be obtained from the public. A cor- respondent writes that the public of Welsh- pool hold this same view with regard to the Henfaes question. Why does not the Council consult the town ? The Assize Problem.—The newspaper- reading public in Welshpool have been fol- lowing with keen interest the protests made in various parts of the country against the proposed grouping of the assize system, which would deprive Welsh pool of its ancient status as an assize town. Probably the case against alteration has been best summed up in a sentence by Councillor Richard Jenkins and by Mr Justice Jelf. The former said that the many are to suffer for the advantage of the few, whilst the Judge at Ruthin last Friday said he thought the change would be a penny wise and a pound foolish. Field Club.—About thirty Field Club members had another invigorating and in- structive outing last Saturday afternoon. By brake and bicycle they assembled at Garbett's Hall, and walked up to the Welsh Harp, the interesting interior of which was inspected. Thence along the road and across the moor the party made for Monks- fields, where Mrs Meredith provided tea at the farmhouse. Afterwards the President (Dr Lloyd Elliott) called upon Mrs Joseph H. Davies to read a paper on this historic place. The contribution was described as one of the very best papers with which the club has yet been favoured. In proposing a hearty vote of thanks to Mrs Davies, Mr R. E. Owen, M.A., drew an interesting comparison between this upland chapelry to Strata Marcella (Pool Quay) Abbey and a similar Cardiganshire chapelry near the abbey of Strata Florida. Service of Sacred Song. Men who have risen in the world by the aid of others and not by their own work, may have plenty of hat-touching and ceremonious respect. But the real regard of his fellowmen is given to the man who has the nerve to throw his hat into the ring of life and fight out the battle of life in a manly .and honourable way." Thus in the Church House yester- day afternoon spoke Mr John Pugh, who, though a veteran figure at the service of sacred song, is never stale. He delivered a bright and practical address on Where's there's a will there's a way." The Rev Douglas Morgan (senior curate) presided, and Mr Sinclair Jones, according to cus- tcvn, proved an acceptable singer of. two solos. The musical programme included one new item, which also had an interest- ing hearing—a part song by a children's choir, which had for its conductor Mr J. Hughes (Police Station). Despite the tempting warm weather and out-of-door at- tractions, there was a good audience.
