Dogs have been barking, and barking at night, townspeople hav- been tossing in their beds while the canine interrupters of their sleep have continued une pt abated and unchecked. Now the owners of the logs are to receive notices that the occupiers of bhe kennels must not continue in this course of wanton disturbance. At Llanidloes and at New- bown the same nuisances exist, but as yet no notice has been taken by the municipal authori- ties. It is to hoped that Welshpool's excellent lead will be followed. WATER.—The reservoir tank at Sylvaen has been cleaned out, and the Surveyor's report which came before the Town Council on Thursday stated that very little solid matter bad been dis- covered in the tank during the cleaning-out pro- cess. The Surveyor also reported that despite the recent heavy rains no cellars had been flooded. Mr Riddell (the engineer) has estimated the cost of fixing the embankment on the inner slope of the reservoir and making the structural alteration on the north slope at .e230 4s 2d. He has been ordered to put the work in hand. INQUEST.—An inquest was held on Wednesday, before Dr R. D. Thomas, coroner, on the body of a little girl, aged two years, named Elsie May Smith, at Elian Cottage, Churchstoke. It appears that on Monday, the 12th inst., the mother (who lost her husband nearly ten months ago) left the little child with another older one in the house whilst she went to untie the cattle in the cow- house. She was absent only a few minutes when she heard a scream, and on going to the house found the child in flames, which were put out with some clothes. Next day, as the child was being taken to the Salop Infirmary, but it died on the way, rear Pontesbury. The jury returned a verdict that the child died from shock from burns accidentally sustained. The Jury and Coroner expressed their sympathy with the mother. POLICE COUILT.-Thomas Jones, navvy, Bishops Castle, was brought up at the Borough Police Court on Thursday, and charged with stealing a pair of clogs, valued at 5s, belonging to Charles Ernest Thomas, waggoner, Trehelig. Thomas said he met the defendant about 10 a.m. near Trebelig, and defendant asked him where he could go and lie down. Witness took him up to Trehelig, and let him sleep in the loft above the stable. That was just before breakfast. When he returned to the stable he found that defendant had gone, and he also found that a pair of clogs had also gone. He informed the police,—P.C. T. C. Jones said he arrested prisoner, who was wearing the clogs produced.—Prisoner admitted the theft, and was sent to prison for seven months with hard labour. SALOP-ROAD IMPROVEMENT. Residents in Salop-road will greet with pleasure the determin- ation of the Town Council to pave the road from Gungrog-lane to Wellington Crescent. As the County Council had agreed to pay half the cost, Councillor Hiles moved at the Paving and Light- ing Committee hold on Friday week that this be agreed to. Dr Thomas seconded him. At a meet- ing of the Council proper held on Thursday the M«yor (Alderman T. J. Evans) and Councillor Pryce Jones protested against this work being carried out on the grounds that they had not received any petition for the work to be carried out from the local residents, neither had they re- ceived any offers of contributions from property owners. Despite this proteet the recommenda- tion was endorsed and it was decided to proceed with the work.
