Ammanford Folios Court I Monday, January 20th.-B3fore Mr. Jno. Lewis, Bryn-Rhug (in the chair) and Mr. ijohn Rees, Cwmamman. I SWORN IN. P.C. Britten, who has been jecently dis- charged from the Army, was sworn in to act as constable in the County Force. The Chairman said that he would like to convey to him the admiration of the Bench for the way he joined the Forces when I needed. He trusted he had many years of good service in the Force left. I MILK AND WATER. Amelia Jones, The Brook, Garnant, was summoned by inspector John Jones for sell- ing milk with 21 per cent, of added water. The Inspector stated that the offence was committed on the 6th December last. Defendant, in reply to the charge, said that she had not been satisfied with the quality of the milk for some time. The Chairman: Have you a warranty from, the farmer? Defendant: No; I could not get milk from anywhere else, and had to take what I could get. I told all the people that intended giving up the round and was selling the milk at a loss. The Chairman, in giving the decision of the Bench, said that the Inspector had proved the charge. It was essential that the young children should get a proper supply of milk, and without water. She would be fined 13. WEIGHTLESS BREAD. Anne Thomas, Golden Criist Bakery, Ammanford, was summoned for selling bread short in weight. Inspector John Jones proved the offence. Cross-examined, the inspector admitted that the older the bread was the lighter it became. Mr. Samuel Griffith, for the defendant, said that there was a degree of guilt, but what had been done was through the want of thought and in ignorance. The defendant lacked experience in the bakery line, and she had suffered great loss by the death of her husband and the taking to the Colours of her son, who was now serving in Salonica. During Christmas week she (the defendant) had baked a very large quantity of bread; in fact, too much, with the result that she had had it sent out for sale with the bread of the subsequent week. In the meantime, it had lost weight. There was no intention on the part of defendant to defraud the public. Defendant was ordered to pav costs. NO REAR LIGHT AND IDENTIFI- CATION PLATE. Luther Davies, Garnant, pleaded guilty to a charge of riding a motor-cycle without a rear light and for not having an identification plate on the front part of the motor-cycle. P.C. Higgins stated tt at 6.15 p.m. on the 7th inst. he saw defendant riding a motor- cycle on the Llandilo road, Llandebie, and proceeding towards Ammanford. He had no rear light on the motor-cycle, and on exami- nation later witness found also that there was no identification plate on the front part of the cycle. The defendant said that the rear lamp would not work, and that he had lost hi6 identification plate two miles the other side of Llandilo, where he had had a side- slip. The left footplate of the cycle was damaged. Defendant said that on the date in question he purchased the cycie at Newcastle Emlyn, there being no alternative, as he was stranded and wanted to get back home. At Carmar- then, he noticed the i rear lamp was defective, and intended drawing the attention of the first police officer he met to the circum- stances. At Llandilo, he had two skids, and some of the parts had been found the follow- ing day. Defendant was Anecfi 15s. (for the first offence, and ordered te pay costs for the second. I COLLARLESS DOGS. John Davies, farmer, Derwydd, was sum- moned by P.C. Jenkins for allowing two dogs to be without collars. Defendant did not appear, but had, on being told by the constable that he would be reported, enquired if the Act was still in force. I He was fined 7s. 6d. for each offenoe. UNATTENDED HORSE AND CART. For leaving his horse and cart unattended, John Cottrell, Workmen's Rest, Amman ford was fined 5s. 6d. P.S. Morgan proved the off«nce. TRESPASSING ON THE RAILWAY. John William Hughes, Aberlash House, Llandebie; William John Rice, Harold Street, Ammanford; Michael Thomas, Coro- nation Terrace, Tirydail; Thomas Evans, Cwmbach, SaTon; William Morris, Wern- fadog; Own Bevan, Blaencwmbach; Benj. Evans, Gilfachevan; aid Herbert Shepperd, Penwaunhafod, were summoned by Inspector ArnoJd, G.W.R., for trespassing on the Mouittaln Railway on the Ilth November last. All the defendants pleaded guilty. The Chairman, in ordering defendants to pay costs, said that it was an old grievan in the district, and he suggested that they should come to some arrangement with the Railway Company. H? (the Chairman) wa only throwing the sion out. THEFT OF A HANDBRUSH AND I KNIFE. Mrs. Louisa Rogers, of 8, Dogsbrook Ter- race, Saron, was charged by Deputy Chief Constable John Evans with stealing a hand- brush, valued at 6s. 9d., the property of the Ammanford Furnishing Company. Mr. G. Bowen Jone3, the manager of the Ammanford Furnishing Company, deposed to missing the kandbrush produced from the shop. He knew the brush to be the property of the firm, by a private mark on the handle. The defendant was a customer at the estab- lishment. Mrs. l £ elly, living with defendant in apart- ments,, said that on the 27th December last she asked her (defendant) te bring back a parcel from Ammanford. She never noticed | the brush, in the house be fore that, Witness asked her what she gave for the brush, and she replied, Four and something." P.$. Britten deposed to visiting 8, Dogs- brook Terrace, at 3.30 p.m. on the 11th January. He had with him a search warrant, and was accompanied by P.C. Jones. On top of a Aelf and dresser in a room occupied by defendant he found the brush produced. On the 12th inst. he (witness) charged defen- 1 lciant with stealing, a, handbrush from the Amman ford Furnishing Company. In reply defendant said: I bought the brush twelve months ago from a pawnshop in Llanelly." A further c harge was preferred against defendant, that of stealing a pocket knife, valued at Is., the property of Wyrewood Rees,. of the Colliers' Arms, Saron. Evidence was given by Ml1 Rees, who deposed that defendant was the only person present at the time the knife was missed. P.C J,?n e stated that when he opened the door of tKo Colliers Arms on the date of the offeaice, he noticed something dfom>ing on to ,befloor. He then took defendant to the front room, and asked her to produce what she had in her apron. They were some groceries and potatoes. He then lit a match and went to the front door, and there found the knife pro-guced. Cross-examined, defendant denied offering the constable a shilling to square 'the matter up. In reply to the magistrates defendant elected to b. dealt with summarily. Defendant pleaded not guilty to both offences, and stated that it was the first appearance for her at the Court. She earned her living by picking coal at the tip. She had a good character, and could produce documents to that effect. Defendant was fined £1 for each offence.
You can still buy WAR SAVINGS I CERTIFICATES "THOUGH the issue of War Bonds came to [I an end last Saturday, the Government intends to con- tinue the sale of War Savings Certificates, so as to provide a secure and profitable invest- ment for your savings. You can buy War Savings Certificates through your local War Savings Association, or from any Money Order Post Office, Bank, or Shopkeeper acting as Official Agent. Each Certificate costs 15/6, and increases in value every year until, at the end of five years, it will be worth £ 1. This is equivalent to 5 per cent. Compound Interest, free of Income Tax. 11 If you need the money back, you can get it by giving a few days' notice. But it is much better not to part with your War Savings Certificates before they reach their full value, as the longer you keep them the bigger your profit. £ 1 (or 15f6
I f-rOur Poultry Column. I HATCHING PROBLEMS. Although we are only in January, there will be many folk thinking about hatching, and I guess that there will be more at this work than last year. Most notes on hatching will apply to any time of the year, but naturally there is more care needed now than in April or May, owing to the milder climate and no amount of frost expected. Hen eggs take 21 days to hatch, ducks 28, and turkeys 30, and with our changeable climate much may happea during this period. So when setting hens in February, always be ready for the worst; then if good weather prevails, you will still be safe. The hen is the natural method of hatching, and it is this system which I will deal with. There is something in the position of the nest, but more in the making of the nest and her treatment, which means success or failure. When a hen steals her nest, that is, lays away from the house, and then hatch es her brood, she sometimes chooses queer places. But if notice is taken of the place and time of the year, it will usually be found that the two fit in very well. She will not select a hole in the hedge during March, nor yet a corner in a boiler house during May. Where hens have been on the farm, and one has been sitting, she is seldom missed till she comes home with her brood; then it is diffi- cult to know where she was sitting. But while success has followed the hen who chooses a hedge for the nest, so also it has been the same where they have been on the top of straw stacks or in lofts. The old idea of them drawing moisture from the soil can- not always be possible, for one hen was very succesfaul on a straw rick at least 15 feet from the ground. Nests have been used ^sucoessfully when made ever one another like a chest of drawers, only that the front apens down instead of a drawer. One lot made four pens deep acted well, and the top hens could not possibly draw any mois- ture from the ground. There is a great deal in the weather at the time of hatching, for when the air is moist there is nothing else needed, but if very dry, a warm moist flannel can be placed over the eggs while the hen is off feeding. Then the steam left Behind will be quite enough, and this need only be done duiring the last two or three days. Those sitting boxes which are made eimilar to a coop, only in Jots of six, make suitable places providing they can be kept vermin proof and the frosts are done. For April and May work these are good, but as a rule the big breeders have a special house for sit- ting, and this can be adapted to meet the climate outside. All things considered, there is nothing better than a well building, be- cause it is cool in summer and can be made warm in winter; then all the hatching can be done in safety. Too many people cramp the hen, not allowing any room for her to move round, and this ako means less air, which is bad for the eggs as well as the hen. You canont expect healthy chicks from a vile- smelling nest, so see that all things round the hen are clean and sweet. Making the nest is more important than it is thought, because unless the hen has full control of each egg, she cannot move them when and where she wishes. When hatching in an incubator, the eggs must be turned; but the hen does this herself, though the owner may not see it done. From this you can see that a flat nest is no good; and yet I have seen 01l farms a bit of straw put in a box and the eggs on top, so that as soon as the hen moves and shapes her nest the eggs are on the flat, some in the comers right away from her, so that these chill, and probably the germ dies before she can get them together again. The bottom must bo at least 14 inches square, and then put in about three inches deep of sand or dry earth, which must be hollowed in the centre and pushed well into the corners, which forms a saucer. On top of this put some hay, which is more pliable than straw and warmer for winter. Being softer the hen settles down quickly, and when the nest is warm she is not 60 likely to move. When using a strange hen, always test her first for at least twenty- four hours; then at night you can take any dummies away and put good ones under- neath.
