I Ammanford Police Court Monday, March 10th.-Before Aid. W. J. Williams, Ammanfrya; and Mr. David Davies, Cilrhedyn. I DEAR SALMON. William Roberts, Criterion Restaurant, Glanamman, was summoned by Mr. Llew- elyn HillIs, an Inspector under the Cwm- amman Food Control Committee, for an offence committed unde: the Food Prices and Rationing Order. Mr. Knoyle appeart-d for the prosecution. John Berry, Divisional Inspector under the Ministry of Food, ant stationed at Cardiff, deposed that on the 4th;, February last he purchased a tin of sa lmon from defendant' s establishment, and was charged 2s. 8d. for same, the control price being 2s. 3d. A daughter of defendant served him, and she stated that as much as 3s. per tin had been obtained. He (the Inspector) saw the invoice, which proved that defendant had paid 2s. 6d. for each tin. Mr3. Roberts, who appeared for the defen- dant, said that the offence was not committed intentionally. The Bench fined defendant ii. I FAST DRIVING. P.S. Morgan charged D. Lewis with driving a motor-cycle to the danger of the public in the parish ot Llandebie. Defendant was let off on payment of coats. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY. Dav:d George Pines was charged with being drnuk on the 15tt February last. Inspector Davies, who proved the offence, said that on the date in question he saw defendant in Margaret Street, and was fight- ing with two of his brothers. On being threatened that he would be locked up, he cleared away. He was a discharged soldier. The defendant, "rho did not appear, was fined 12s. inclusive. TRESPASSING ON THE RAILWAY. I 1 homas Higgs, Panlyffynnon Road, was summoned by Detective Inspector Mountjoy for trespassing on the Great Western Rail- way. Mr. T. Randell, Swansea, appeared for the defendant. Thomas Barrah said that on the 10th January last he was sent by the Company, together with P.S. Britten, to Pantyffyn-ion for the purpose of taking the names and addresses of trespassers on the line. About 3.5 p.m. he saw defendant proceeding from I Rhos Colliery siding, get off the ridge, and on to the G. W.R. premises. On being I signalled to by a partner, defendant went back and through some shrubbery. Cross-examined: He had no sketch or plan shewing the boundaries of the G.W.R. He denied that defendant came down from the colliery and along the pathway. P.S. Britten, who was in the company of last witness, said that they were exposed to danger themselves. Thomas Higgs, the defendant, said that he kept on the right-hand side of the railway siding. As he was entering the footpath he was called by the first witness and the police oiffcer. They walked up to him, and asked him if he knew that he was trespassing. He (defendant) asked them to make a note of the position. He was on the Rhos side of the main line and had not entered the G.W.R. property. He never saw the man signalling, and was on top of the stile when called. By the Chairman: There is nothing to shew where the boundaries are. At this juncture the Chairman said that it was advisable to have the plans placed before them, and therefore the hearing would be adjourned for the purpose. GUiLTY. I Morris Thomas, George Smith, and Thos. Henry Davies pleaded guilty to trespassing on the line, and thereby exposing themselves to danger, on the 10th January last. Evidence was given by Thomas Barrah. Davies, who did not appear, was fined 1. 6d., and the two other defendants 7s. 6d. each. OVER THE GARDEN WALL. Richard Hunt, for whom Mr. T. Randell appeared, was charged with a like offence and committed on the 1 Oth January last. Thomas Barrah deposed to seeing defen- dant coming ifrom Rhos sidings towards Pantyffynnon, and from the Park sidings through the Storage tidings, and across th; main up line, and also across a down loop line. He was signaling to the other colliers, and thereby notifying them of the presence of witness and the police officer. Cross-examined: He could have done the signalling from the gardem. Defendant' s garden adjoined the lailway line. P.S. Britten, who corroborated the last witness, said that defendant was a regular nuisance on the date in question. He kept continually getting oc the line and signalling to the other colliers. Defendant, on oath, said that he went out to the back of the garden to watch the fun. He knew a waibch was being kept. He d:d not go down on to tie line from his garden, nor did he signal to the others. Edwin Harries said that he saw defendant coming from work. He came along the road and along the alley. The Bench fined fefeodaot 10..
I On the Pembrokeshire Coast. A SOLDIER'S WAR-TIME EXPERIENCE. The incident referred to in this article happened in the winter of 1914. At the time we were stationed on the Pembroke- shire coast, and the fears of a German invasion kept us very much on the ailert. Those dark and dreaTy nights hampered our feelings of safety, and as we trudged along the coast on our guard, visions of frightfulness hovered around us. Now and again the fog- horns gave out a sharp grunt, and the search- lights played merrily on the water. Often the rats were our only companions, and even they startled our patrol. Their pranks caused us continually to be at the ready and prepared for any eventuality. Our officers had drnmmedinta ue the consequences of an enemy landing, and each and every man's nerves were highly strung. However, no great punishment could be inflicted for mis- haps such as happened on this occasion. During the night, steps were heard coming from the direction of the coast.* The guard, fearing the presence of a spy, advanced to meet the object now to be seen lurking in the darkness. He gave out the order, Halt! Who goes there? There was no response, and yet nearer came the object. The sentry became excited, and none of his comrades could be seen, nor was there any hope of assistance. (Poor fellow, my sympathies were with him). The third order was given, and a shot rang out. Something or someone gave a grunt, and that was all. The affair was reported to the officer on visiting rounds." It being very dark and a storm coming on, no search party was organised. Early next morning the sentry and the ser- geant in charge, as well as the officer, kept watch for the breaking of the dawn. They feared the possibility of a military funeral, and perhaps the discovery of the dead body of a comrade who the previous night had tried to evade the passing of the guard. Also there were great expectations, for were there not honours looming in the dis- tance? Maybe the great naval dockyard had been relieved of the presence of a dangerous spy worthy of the fate of a traitor. The rain came down in torrents, an d the The rain came down in tarrenots, and the wind howling added to the discomforts of the waiting party. At last, dawn came, and a form could be distinctly seen "stretched out near the hedge. A closer examination followed, and nothing more was heard of the matter until a day or two later a neighbouring farmer reported the strange disappearance of a pig to the Competent Military Authority.

Our Poultry Column. I I DUCK BREEDING. Where space allows, this is a branch of the poultry industry which would pay well to take up. Ducks never do well where poultry all have the free run of the field, because ducks soon make the ground lake a mud pond, and then it soon becomes un- healthy for both ducks and fowls. Wet weather is supposed to be good for young ducks, and yet it is the worst weather they can have, because it leads to cramp, and paddling in the mud soon spreads disease. On the whole, Ducks are very hardy, and will stand almost any conditions; but to get them at their best they must have a dry run and a dry house. To swim on a pond is quite a different thing, for then it is clean, and as soon as they feel tired they can get out and rest; and it is then they want to have it dry and sweet. Ducks are dirty feeders, and on a bad soil they must pick up a lot of ifoul dirt, and this leads to disease. The arrangement of the breeding pen must be rather different to that of the fowls, be- cause there must be less together; and then to insure success they need a pond for swim- ming. Then they should not be let out so soon as the fowls, otherwise laying as they do in the early morning, the eggs would be dropped in the water. For all the heavy breeds it is best to keep one drake with three ducks, though smaller* kinds five ducks may be allowed with safety. The drakes do not as a rule seem as troublesome as cocks, hence it is a good plan to keep two drakes with six or eight ducks; and then every egg will be fertile. There is usually a difficulty in keeping ducks in separate pens, owing to the need of water; thus if given a free range, it is best to keep only one kind, so that the varieties cannot get mixed. This would spoil a season and only give stock suitable for kill- ing. For general use a white duck finds most favour, and this is the Aylesbury or one crossed with a Pekin. Being a white plumage, -it looks best when plucked for table; and though all the down is not taken off, there is nothing to take away the appear- ance. When a laying duck is required, then the Indian Runner must be selected, and some of these will lay as many eggs as a fowl. No matter what the breed, they should be kept in the house each morning till after their feed, for as a rule they lay between 8 and 10 each morning. The kind of house does not matter so much if it is dry and plenty of clean 6traw or chaff on the floor. On the farm there is usually plenty of short litter about, and this when taken from the duck house makes good manure. Young ducks should be ready for killing when about 10 weeks old; then they pay well.
