WILFULLY TAKING THB YOUNG OF SALMON.—, David Owen, river bailiff, charged George Blythe, Caersws, with the above offence. This was an ad- journed case, the evidence having been given at the j previous sessions, but their worships reserved judg- ment. Defendant was how fined 28s, including costs, or in default seven days' hard labour. TRESPASS IN PURSUIT OF GAME.—Edward Watkin, farmer, Llandinam, charged two Caersws men named Trow and Jones, and old offenders, with trespassing in pursuit of game on the 16th Sept. Trow appeared, but Jones did not. Witness stated that on the above date he was going along the road towards home and he heard some dogs barking as if they were chasing rabbits. Witness got over the hedge into a clover field and there saw the de. fendants. They had two dogs. with them, and they stated that they were only afur a rabbit. John Hamer, platelayer. Caersws corroborated, and Trow was fined 10s and Jones 40s including costs. There were several school oases which were dis- posed of in the usual way. BISHOPS' CASTLE,—MONDAY. Before the Mayor (Mr Councillor Strawson), Coun- cillor Greenhous (ex-mayor), and W. E. Garnott- Botfield, Esq. A BEERHOUSE LICENSE REFUSED.—MC J. A, Talbot, of Newtown, on behalf of the official liquidator of the Montjj9jjj £ ryg]1ire Brewery Com- pany, in liquidation (Mr E. H. Morris, Chirbury), I\1¥Q bt the mortgagees and the present tenant (Mr Edwin Jones), applied for a renewal of the license of the Unicorn beerhouse, which was adjourned at the annual licensing sessions on September 4th on the application of Inspector Lewis on the ground of the manner in which the house was conducted and the conviction of the landlord for permitting drunken- ness, also to enable him to give the proper notice of obj action. The service of the notice, as follows, was admitted First, that you have been twice con- victed against the tenure of your license, and that, having been so convicted, you are not a fit and proper person to hold such a license. Secondly, that the house was not required in the borough of Bishops' Castle as a beer-nouse."—Mr Talbot, at the com- mencement of the proceedings, took a technical objection in the wording of the notice, which he con- tended was not in accordance with the Act of 1869. In support of his objection he quoted the case of Regina v. the Justices of Merthyr Tydvil, and held thitt, the notice being bad, the migistratea had n? alternative but to renew the license.—The magis- trates, after consulting with the clerk, held that the notice was sufficient according to the requirements of the Act of Parliament, and over-ruled the objec- tion.—Mr Talbot asked for a note in writing to be taken, so as to enable him to appeal, if, aft,r they had heard the evidence, they decided against him.- Inspector Lewis then called John Williams, ex-police sergeant, who on oath deposed that he had been stationed in Bishop's Castle since July, lS75, till he left the force in January last, during which time he had known the Unicorn beerhouse, aud that the house had not been well conducted, and the character of the people that frequented it was bad.—Mr Talbot objected to anything being said prior to the tenancy of Jones, and the Bench ruled that the evidence must be confined to Jones's tenancy.—Continuing, witness said that Jones had kept the house about one and a half year. He had not kept it well, and was fined on the licensing day twelve months ago for permitting drunkenness, Ihere had also been a robbery from the person having taken place on the premises. Three hawker women were arrested, and one convicted. He had never spoken to Jones personally upon the manner in which the house had been conducted, but had told Mrs Jones, his wife. Jones had been tenant of the house about eight or ten days at the time of the robbery. He should >ay that it had not been a well-conducted house, and that it was not required in the neighbourhood. It was in a bad state of repair, and was not adapted for a public-house.- Nothing material was eLcited in cross-examination. Sergeant Benjamin Finney stated that he had been stationed in Bihop's Ca.-tie since February last, and that during that dune the house had not been well conducted. On the 2nd o' August the conduct was very bai, the landlord wi. the worsu for drink, and had u. bLck eye, and a tramping woman and some mea were allowed to remain on the premises for hours after they Iven drunk. On the following day he was inÎormtJd tht there was no one in charge of the house (Jones's wife having left him) and on visiting the house found ihe landlord, who was I ha worse for drink, asleep in tlx parlour and on the of August be had to take a. sweep who had bedl to the Unicorn to the lockup. I'here were also lour lull-licensed houses within 16J yards. There was i o accommodation, only a smali r labrB, and the premises were in bid repair, the drains being stopped up and the collar sometimes fUll of water. He was present on September -It whe i Jones was filled 2U, and costs, <1ud the license ordered to be endorsed, for permitting drunkenness on the premises on August 2nd.-ln reply to Mr Talbot, the officer said th it his chi f ground for ••bjeotion was that Joans permitted ul. Mr Talbot addressing the Bench, said that they ha i ruled against/him on his objection, and should like an expression of opinion from chem. As to Jones's character and the case of August 2nd, if they held that Jones was not of such a character as they could renew the license to, he would not waste their timj on that point, but would take their opinion and then make another application.—The Bench said that at present the only matter before them was in reference to Jones's case a)onc-Alr Talbot asked them nut to sacrifice the property, which would be a grea.t hard- ship to the mortagees, but to renw the lie; nse on Ilia (Mr T.ilbot) giving' an undertaking that Jone-i should quit the piemises in a month, and they would and a, suitable tenant wnoshall be approved of by th, police.—Mr Botfield asked if Mr Talbot was going to call evidence as to Jones's character, and received a reply in the negative, as he (Mr Talbot) had advised him that it, was uot necessary in accordance with the uoticj given.—The magistrates then retired, and on their i e: iirn, afler a short absence, the sai. the iicense was refuted on tho ground thst the, appli- cant had failed to produce satisfactory evidence of good ehiracter.—Mr Talbot was about to make u further application, wheu the Bench said that tho license was dead, and no further proceedings could be entertained except an application at nex:. licensing meeting for a new license.—Mr Talbot intimated that they should -.ap;,eal, and the Bench fixed tbi recognizances at two sureties in .£O each.—The license of the Castle Hotel was transferred from tbe executors of the LLte Mr John li. Pooie to Mrs Poole, thtre being no opposition. WELSHPOOL COUNTY SESSIONS — I'.iONDAT. Before Capt. Mytton, Col. Harrison, and 3. Powell, I E-qra.

Jones came to the house, but he did not charge him with drunkenness.—D. C. C. Crowden said that as the defendant contradicted the witness he thought it would be advisable to have Jones, who was away that day, and he therefore asked for an adjournment.—Mr I Woosnam objected to an adjournment, and saidithat now the police had found themselves in a difficulty they must needs ask their Worships for an adjourn- ment. They knew that Jones would be away, and they ought to have asked for an adjournment previous to the hearing.—Adjourned.—David Evans, High Street, was charged with being at the Talbot Inn under the influence of drink.-P.C. Rees stated that on the 8th September, about ten minutes to eleven he visited the house and found the defendant with Ellis, in the kitchen under the influence of drink. Defendant asked witness if he wanted anything to drink, and on replying in the negative he wanted to know what witness wanted there if he did not want anything to drink. The landlord was sitting at the time in a screen. In reply to Mr Woosnam, witness said that there was nobody else in the house. There was a half-pint jug on the table before Evans, but he did not notice whether there was anything in it. De. fendant walked out, and staggered down the street. WitnesF-, charged him with being drunk on licensed premises.—This case was also adjourned. Mr Woosnam applied for expenses. He said that it had been no fault of theirs that the adjournment had been brought about. He had been summoned there and his client had been put to expense.—The Bench did I not grant the application, WITHDRAWAL.—Mr G. D. Harrison applied for leave to withdraw the summons in the case of Grice v. Rogers for trespass, which was granted. DRUNK AND USING BAD LANGUAGE.—Richard Jones, Peuearth Mill, was charged by P.S.

The stones struck her on the side and arms, and caused her much pain. —Defendant asked complainant if she was sure he called her a liar.-Witness, with emphasis, "Yes, you did."—Defendant said she hit him with a pota- too on the back of the heai. He had witness's to prove it.-Prosecutrix said she wished to call wit- nesses, but they were not at present in court, but would be in a few minutes; they had been summoned. —The Mayor said they would dismiss the case, and as he did so a person in the Court shouted out at the top of his voice that there were witnesses to prove the case. TRESPASSING.—Arthur Parry, of Berriew Street, charged Evan Williams, of Stanley St., with trespas. ing on his hay stack on the 13th and 14th September Witness stated that he had caught the defendant there several timps on the hay, and had cautione him previously.

SEVERN AND VYRNIEW FISHERIES.
SEVERN AND VYRNIEW FISHERIES. To the Editor of the Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times. Sir,-I noticnl in a io.;dl papfr of the 6th Septem- ber a paragraph taken from the Country Gentleman re- ferring to i;e Sal,noi* fishing iu the U.)pe.- Severn and its tributaries, upon wh.cii. I Luuid like to make a lew rem, rk". In the lirsi, place it would be madness to expect any salmon in th>* uppor waters ui a season such as we have had througu th ) List spring and summer, when there has burn no wa er to cart y a fish tonce March, uuless, as state i, they had arrived ;n the high watH of January and February. I think it unusual that thUiSb flusnes did not oring up uiore fish, at all events no tisii did com* whatever the Conservators may have said at our meeting. It is i idiculous to notice what is ""IJ at our muetifigs oil this matter by men whose feeling's are devoid of justice and fair play, as is the case up In ne pari of many of the lower repre- sent rtives upon the iioard. 1 dItTer ollilely from him as to the cause of the tciic ty o: fi-li in the upper waters being attribut- able to tliti scwagd of towns, such as Shrewtbury, Welshpool, iNewiowu, etc., they have always up to the priisenc tr-veilau through tne sewage of these towns, and if there were tnousands more of them al- lowed to come they wouid tu^Cjed iu getting to the upper waters. 1 fUll no advocate for allowing the settft-getubc ititt) ttie Severn, on the other hand I would ts ,0011 a^ it is pjesibluput astop to it, but 1 believe there are cities and tuwns lower down the river wi.ero the iarue quantity of sewage poured in may tend to stop tiie fiau i.seeuding, especially one tributary, upon wnicii is situated a tuwn from which a largv qua Uty of poisonous fluid is emptied from the different dye and c.iipet factories, winch I trust, may be stopped without further delay. Another reifou given for the scarcity of fish is the great ob- struction ofTrtit-d by tho weirs t,) their ascension. That is a mutter wli,eh tiaa been kept constant y b0- fore the B .ard, aud I am happy to say a good de.-I has bell done 111 that (iireutiOt; but etill there aie weirs which n^eu attention and alteration, and others where there ¡te'" no pamtis at all which should by all means liave b.^cu do.ie tine e-ataaier. But through ajuis cause or otiier nothing "eems to have betn done to remedy tnis d. awback, not omy as regards st:inoil but trout which ttave. up stream for spawning pur- poses as well as aalmon, and I urn sorry to bay that upon sums of our best trout streams tuere are some we.rsovir w hied no trout cai. get, but I trust by gradual andsteidy woik to see ail Ihe,e obstacles overcome, and the filling in .-hropkhire and Moni- gouieryslure bee .me something want it may re>eoii- abiy expect to be. The Coa..try Ge- tieman has not, I perceive, even st LlI tiw Savoni Conservancy Board, as he would be:01'd now nave found oui. tho real re«sou of scarcity of a mon up IL the upper waters in sotiSoiits whea water wouid carry them, namely, tho disgrace- ful over fishing in tun .owu-r wat.rs.

All the Chairman of the Board has.aia it is miraculous how any fish at ail succacd in yts,iug them, such, I feel confiden is the real aud only reason for the scarcity ot nsu in M-ascns whan the \fa, e1: is pientiiul to bring them.

THEY SPORT WITH HUMAN iLIFE-…
THEY SPORT WITH HUMAN iLIFE- I'll give you the plain facts in the case, and you shall help me to judge whether there was a mistake made or not. It seems that some time in 1889— in the winter, no doubt-Mr Strong, of Leicester, was taken down with influenza, often called the grip; and truly a strong grip it has when it once takes a hold. Well, II am glad to say he was able to fight out the battle and get the best of it. But the best wasn't anything to brag of. The influenza hadn't exactly beaten Mr Strong, but it left him in very bad condition. And here is where you and I properly pick up the thread of the story. His meals didn't tempt him the most savonry of dishes had no charms for our friend. He had lost his appetite, and in the long run a man had better lose his money. He forced down something of course, but it gave him such a pain in the chest that he wished he hadn't swallowed a mouthful. Then' naturally, he got so weak and nervous he couldn't sleep o' nights. This, as everybody knows, is the straight road to the graveyard, through the mad- house. Lots of people are making that trip all the time. We must eat and we must sleep. If we don't we are done for. Neuralgic pains, too, made matters worse for Mr Strong. Ile nw a doctor, and what did the doctor do? This is what the patient says on that point: This doctor gave me all kinds of strengthening medicines, but none of them did me any good, and I continued to saffer for month after month." Just what we might have expected. Mr Strong further says: "In October, 18S0, my friend, Mr James Webster, of 28, New Walk, Leicester, advised me to try a medicine called Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I followed his advice. The first bottle gave me great relief, and I began to digest my food and to have an appetite and after I had used three bottles I was quite another man. I was completely cured. All my aches and pains left me, my strength returned, and I have been all right ever since. What astonished me was that the Syrup cured me so quickly, and I shall never cease thanking Mr Webster for making it known to me. YOIl are at liberty to publish my case for the benefit of others. Y 01, rB truly, (Signed) W. STRONG. 41, East-street, Leieesti r, December 30th, 1891." N JW, was there a mistake in td ma iter, and if so, what was it ? Ye*, there was a corumon mistake made. It is an old and seemingly hopeltsg blunder. The doctor," says Mr Strong, gave me all ku.ds of strengthening medicines." Open wide your ears and remember what I'm going to tell you now remember it for the hour of your own helplessness and pain: There is no such thing as strengthening medicine, ntither in tie! earth nor in the waters which are under the earth. l'his is the truth all the high-class doctors kco-v it. As for the others-well, there! the less said abcut them the better. Mr Strong took "strengthening medicines," ar.d what happened to him? Why, he "continued to suffer month after month." Did you ever see" lIo: se made stronger and fatter by spurs and lash-wi ips ? leaving cfE the oats and bay ? I think you have not. And that is what "strengthening medicines" do, and ali they do. So-called tonics are like making a sick man wa k far and fast by kicking him at every other step. Nothing under the sun but digested food imparts strength no drug ever does. And herein is the perpetual success and victory of Mother Seigel's Syrup; it cleanses the system of disease-poison and leaves Nature sweet and free. The stomach then cries, "Feed me," and so power and health come back like the tfieen gl&.S after a chower. Do you see? Mother pr,ci-.tia,s I destroy disease Nature responds, Only du that, and I can take care uf mytelf." The disease is indigestion and dyspepsia. Mr ?trorg bad it and was badly treated. Should you have u, try the Syrup first-not last, tor 1 have toid you why. EXPERIENCE. •London, March, 1892.
