"PAID YOUR GAS BILL P" QUITE A CATCH- WORD AT NEATH. COUNCIL AND A LOCAL ENQUIRY. At Neath Council on Thiursday the "kleyor (Mr. W. B. Trick, J.P.) presiding, the reports of four committee meetings of the Gas Committee were read. The full pur- -port of these reports has already appeared in our columns. In moving their adoptipn, Ald. Hopkin I Morgan said the committee had been busily engaged, and they would note that two col- lectors were now employed in th.e work of collecting- The committee hoped that mat- ters would thus be so expedited that a com- plete statement would soon be placed be- fore the Council. Mir. J. R. Jones thought the time had come when the public should be taken into the confidence of the Council on the ques- tion of arrears. Every second or third piaji met in the street asks: Have you paid ymr gas bill?" (Laughter). It was not so long ago when he (the speaker) ;rI? haps unwisely made use of tfhe word bounder." "And," continued Mr..Tomes, "I WAS PROMPTLY SAT UPON. The Council stood upon its dignity. Now I want to be able to stand upon my dignity. I don't owe for any gas, and I should like every other member of the Council to make the same disclaimer." Mr. E. S. Phillips said that much mis- chief was undoubtedly done by the men in the street, who went about saying things without attempting to get at the truth. He had been accused of owing money for gas when he had never had a foot of gas in his house. MUD HAD BEEN FLUNG at public men, and undeservedly so. The whole position would be Investigated by the audit clerk, and as soon as possible be re- pealed to the ratepayers. The Mayor said they lad had a special meeting, and the matter was properly dealt with as far as it could be then. The matter then dropped. APPOINTMENT OF AUDITORS. The Lteily Post" is officially informed that at a private meeting of the Neath Town Council on Thursday afternoon Messrs. Wal- ter Hunter and Co., incorporated account- ants, Newport, were appointed to investigate and report upon the accounts of the gas de- partment.
1,000 MEN IDLE. GLOOMY OUTLOOK IN PON- TARDAWE STRIKE. The dispute at Messrs. Gilbertson's Works, Pontardawe, has spread, with the ^"6SVllf%that all the tin and sheet mills- fourteen in number—have stopped, and nearly 1,000 men are idle. The only men working are the steel- smelters, whose notices to the employers expire in three weeks' time, and there seems very little prospect whatever of a settlement.

OPEN AIR SCHOOLS. STRIKING SWANSEA SUCCESS, STURDY AND HEALTHY I PUPILS. A Way to Save Thousands. An encouraging report on the efficiency of open-air schools was given at the Swansea School Children Medical Inspection Commit- tee on W ednesday by Dr. Evans, the bor- ough medical officer of health. Dr. Evans referred in particular to the open-air class that had been held at Dyfatty School since shortly after Christmas, and which was held throughout the recent severe weather. The children, said Dr. Evans, re- mained out during the whole of that cold weather. Of course, they were assisted by the supply of cloaks and warm milk; but regarding the cloaks, they were not very much required. The children had gained in weight and in general condition, so much so that Dr. Jones, THE SCHOOL MEDICAL OFFICER, WAS ASTOUNDED with the results. A group of children of similar physique that were taken when the experiment was started had remained in- side, and they showed no increase in weight. The teachers reported favourably on the alertness of the children in the open-air class, and even amongst the teachers them- selves the results were beneficial, one of them especially, who was rather delicate, being now quite "bonny." In Birming- ham, Dr. Evans added, the open-air teach- ing was carried on much more success- fully, as there ain independent institution built by one of the Messrs. Cadburv enabled the children to get exercise and sleep in ad- dition to teaching. That was how consump- tion was being tackled there. lUTHERS' INTEREST IN THE SCHOOL. in reply to Mr. Lewis, Dr. Evans said that health i-isl tors followed up the children in the homes, whilst he noticed when he him- self was there recently that mothers were competing with one another to get their children into the school. Even in Swansea they/ had had no withdrawals from the class during the cold weather, nor any other difficulties on the part of the parents. The teachers generally were coming round in the matter, and though those at the Bethesda, temporary school would not remain in, they were quite willing to go into an open-air class. The Chairman: The most important point is the health of the children, but from an economical standpoint it is important as well. In the past we have been paying away a lot of money on buildings that are really not required. THOUSANDS OF POUNDS SAVED. "T"II..r, Jir. x/avia Matthews said that if they had had open-air schools years ago thousands of pounds would have been saved in capital charges. In that respect he hoped the medi- cal officer would soon report on the question of establishing an institution for dealing with the consumptive children. They might save a good deal of the money to which the Local Education Authority were committed on new schools by putting the matter before the Board of Education 200 CONSUMPTIVE CHILDREN Dr. Evans said there were 200 cases of tuberculous children in the schools of the borough, but he was not in sufficientlv close touch with them to say how many were in- fectious cases. A further report was promised.

LION CHARGES BIO- SCOPE. ——— ———. THE JUNGLE TRAG- JI EDY. HOW !NTREP!D OPERA.I HOW INTREPID OPERA- TOR DIED. (Press Association Foreign Special). Nairobi (undated).—Delayed by break- down of cable. Full details are now available of the tragic death cf Mr. Paul Schindler, a mem- ber of Mr. Paul Rainey's Cinematograph Expedition, who was mauled on January, 21st while attempting to photograph a lion i hunt, and died at Nairobi some days later. On the day of the accident Mr. Schindler was out with Mr. ilainev near Lake Naiva- sha. They hoped to take CINEMATOGRAPH PICTURES OF A LION I brought to bay by dogs. A lion was found in a patch of bushes. Creeping cIos-er and closer, the two men were able to catch a glimpse of the great beast, which was beset by the dogs. Mr. Schindler decided to ride behind the bush and drive the lion towards the camera. Mr. liaiiiey, who was intently watching, suddenly saw the lion's ears flicker and his head turn. He realised then that his friend had ridden right into the bush. Rainey shouted a warning as the lion sprang out of sight. Shots rang out and the lion. untouched. FLASHED BACK UPON RAINEY. then, again turning, pursued the fleeing natives who were of the white men's party. Schindler's horse at this moment burst into the open streaming with blood, and Rainey, snatching up his rifle, shot the lion point blank. j On going into the bush he found Schinfdler lying with grievous wounds in the abdomen. where the lion had bitten him. He was conscious and still game. After first aid had been rendered, the wounded man was taken in a special train to Nairobi, where on examination his wounds were found to be mortal. Schindler maintained his courage to the last. Blood poisoning set in, and was fol- lowed by a painless dca.th.
PLEURISY AFTER CRUSHED LEG. LONLAS COLLIER'S DEATH AT SWANSEA. At the Alexandra-road Chapel School- room, Swansea, on Wednesday afternoon, the Borough Coroner held an inquest (n James Rees (54), a haulier employed at the Cwrt-y-Bettws Colliery, who died at the! Swansea Hospital on Tuesday through his leg being crushed between two waggous on January 21st last. Mr. Lewis (Inspector of Mines), Mr. Davies (miners' agent), and Mr. Bull (re- presenting the employer) were present. Evidence of identification was g.ven by the son, James Rees, collier, of Loalas, Llansamlet. Witness stated that deceased had been employed at the colliery for 17 or 18 years. Thomas Davies, 19, Railway-terrace, Skewen, tipper at the colliery, stated that deceased was working with the trucks as usual. His attention was attracted shortly after two o'clock by deceased shouting. Ho saw the five waggons moving along tu- wards the tipping sheds. After the wag- gons passed he saw deceased on the ground dose to the rails. When witness got to within 30 yards of him deceased shouted to him, COME QUICK. TOM, my leg is cut off; come and stop my blood." Coroner Are you a first aid man ?"— Yes, a ir. The leg from the knee was split open to the ankle. There was no t,ime lost in getting deceased to the Swansea Hospital. No one saw the accident. Dr. Gabe (Swansea Hospital) said that when deceased was admitted there was a compound fracture of the right leg, which was amputated. On the 26t.h of January deceased complained of pains in the chest, and on examination he found deceased was suffering from pleurisy. Death was due to heart failure and pleurisy, following the accident. Verdict in accordance with medical testi- mony was returned.
Woman's most Dangerous Age ■ < Earnest Advice for those in the Fateful Forties," A woman's life is full of crises the most critical time in adult womanhood arises at any time after the age of 40, but previous to this the average woman has much to endure. Small wonder is it that when a woman reaches the fateful forties she is weary and worn and shows signs of ageing more rapidly than does a man. This upheaval of health that besets the woman approaching middle-age betrays it- self in many different ways. In extreme cases she may suffer from hallucinations most trying to her family. In the majority of cases, however, her health is affected by terrible depression, verging on melancholia, lack of self-confi- dence, fears of self and the unknown, ex- treme lassitude, severe back-aches, violent headaches, sudden faints, sickness, loss of appetite and other symptoms of distress. A sympathetic husband and loving child- ren may do much to help, but the best help for any distressed wife and mother is the health-help that is given by Dr. Williams' Fink Pills for Pale People, far this valuable tonic gives a woman just that help she needs to carry her over a time of trial. Dr. Wil- liams' Pink Piils are valuable to her be- cause they act by enriching the blcod, nourishing the starved and overwrought nerves and strengthening the vital organs. Without such help this change engen- ders perilous constitutional weaknesses, and some times even threatens life. There is no better health-restorer in the world for the weaker sex at all ages. The original prescription of Dr. Williams' Pink Fills was that of a most successful woman's doctor who understood their illnesses and weaknesses, and found nothing so helpful as the prescription now available at every chemist's under the easily-remembered name of Dr. JVilliams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Every woman knows how readily her blood may liecome anaemic or impure, caus- ing paleness or sallowness or. spottiness of complexion. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act upon the blood so that tlae blood becomes purer and richer and a healthier, happier condition of health and spirits arises. In support of the above the following in- stances are mentioned HEALTH ALL TO PIECES. Mrs. E. Smith, of 24. City-road. Peter- borough, states "At 40 my health went I all to pieces. Sly had was alwajft 'cloudy,' and there was a sensation as 01 something heavy on my brain. Then a load seemed to be cpipnetsskig my heart; i often broke out in dreadful hot ftuShŒ. Doctors told me that I was under- going a very bad turn. I had feaiitfutl nAgihit- ewteats, and painful swellings in my limbs. Treatment seemed a waste of money. However, I was advised to talke Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After a box of these Pills I felt that my appetite was awaken- ing; as I continued taking the Pills all the swellings went from my limbs, and the dizzi- ness and fainitings ceased. Soon I lost all pains and flushes, and a few more of these splendid Pills made me fit and well." NEVER FELT SAFE ALONE. h's. R. Rowland, of 1, Sexton's Row, Bridge End-rd., Grantham. states:—"T was scarcely 45 when depression seized me, and ¡ my health became very uncertain. Doctors warned me tJhat the trouble was connected with my age. I took miueih medi- oinle, but-often felt as if my head was burst- ing. Soon hot flushes began to fly over me, and though I kept oar taking medicine;. I had dreadful weaknesses, and did not feel Enfe when alone in the house. I was subject to dizziness, and could not sitand excitement. Then on the advice of a lady who had baen cured of similar troubles I tiried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. "One week's treatment toned up my appetite; the Pills gave me more strength, and took away all faintue?s. As I foil-owed on with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills all low spirits and depression went, and I gfcit rid of every aAe. So these Pills gave me new, good blood and good health." FREE TO LADY READERS.

RED BLOTCHY PIMPLES ON FACE ——— < ——— From Barber's Rash. Little Blisters, Burning Itching Pain. Used Cu- ticura Soap and Ointment. Cure Rapidly Followed. 60, Eldon Rd., Cardiff, S. Wales.—"The Cuticura Soap and Ointment completely cured me from the disfiguring complaint I known as barber s rash. i suffered from the rash for a period of about two years. It appeared on my face several weeks after I com- menced shaving in the form of little blisters. After a while the blfsterscommenced to burst leaving in their places red blotchy pimples, causing me a great amount of irritation. Then they spread all over my face causing a burning itching pain and to crown all, where there were no pimples there were blackheads which were spreading. Soon there was not a. clear piece gf skin on my face. I tried various kinds of ointments all of which did me no good, for as soon as I applied them the rash commenced to itch and burn in a most terrible way. After two years I was recommended to try the Cuti- cura Soap and Ointment. As soon as I applied the Cuticura Soap and Ointment they soothed the burning pain of the blister- ing pimples and the curo rapidly followed. I was completely cured in three months."

EITOFT'S STAND. LIVERPOOL TRIAL, RETORTS IN CROSS- EXAMINATION. When Mr. Riley put Eltoft into the box in the Liverpool sack murder trial on Wed- nesday (says a "Daily Express" reporter), after a long opening speech, that youth sur- prised everyone by his suddenly revealed personality almost as much as his evidence— chiefly denials—appeared to surprise his companion m the dock. Here was no timid schoolboy filtering through a terrible ordeal, but a cool, direct, almost pugnacious young person, standing I steadily upright in the box, with his arms at I his side, and LOOKING SQUARELY AT THE I QUESTIONER of the moment, whether it were judge or I prosecutor. In his direct examination he confined him- self almost entirely to sharp monosyllables. When Mr. He wart began with deadly calm- ness to weave a net for him he blurted out little staccato sentences, always reflecting for a tecoiKl or two before he replied, and frequently giving a somewhat unexpected j answer. When he had been drawn well into the labyrinth of cross-examination and his in- quisitor began searching out paragraphs from former statements and comparing them aloud, with a quiet request for their recon- ciliation, young Elliott's boyish face was suffused with a full red flush, but he did nob falter perceptibly. Sometimes, by a quick retort, he silenced the questioner. "Why," asked Mr. Hewart, "did you say 'we tdok the body,' if Ball alone dragged it to the canal from the handcart to the canal ?" "1 didn't say 'we,' retorted Eltoft, "I said 'he;' and the inspector must have mis- understood me." His story, in brief, is "that he thought Ball was taking A SACKFUL OF RUBBISH to the canal. He denied that he was in the "hop at all at the time of the murder or after- wards, that he took any part in the prepara- tion of the body for its last journey through the moonlit streets, as Ball alleges, or that he had at any time the slightest suspicion that a murder had been committed. As he uttered th.ese denials piecemeal im- mediately on entering the witnss-box, and repeated them in cross-examination. BALL SAT QUIVERING in his chair behirid the railing of the dock. It was the first time he had shown any emotion. His hands twitched against his faded trousers, and once or twice he drew a bony finger across his tearful eyes. The lamps above him had just been lit, and, with the deepened shadows around his cavernous eyes and gaunt che-eks, he looked very sad and unhappy.
MILLIONAIRE'S BREACH." X100,000 DAMAGES ASKED I h- FOR. I The arrest ot Al. Octavio Guinle, described as a Brazilian millionaire, and member of a large exporting concern, with offices in many biji South-American cities, and also in New York and London, attracts unusual atten- tion (says the New York correspondent of the "Daily Telegaph"). Miss Monica Bor- dcn. who lives with her mother at New ork, alleges that the Brazilian promised to marry her, and on the ground that Mr. C uinle intended to avoid a suit for breach of promise by sailing to Europe aboard the White Star liner Olympia, her counsel se- cured his detention in custody for several hours, until he had provided bail of £ 10,000. According to the details filed by Miss Bor- den, the Brazilian has been occupying a suite of rooms here cot..ing £125 a month. She met him for the first time in May last., and on July 5th he represented that he COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT HER. i Mr. Guinle knew she was to sail for Europe on that day with her eister Violet. Just before she started she got this letter from him — "My Darling and Sweet Mona,—I am crazy. I don't know what to- do without you. I have been crying since you left me alone without a soul to console me. You are the only woman I ever loved in all my life. I am willing to do anything for you. Come to me, and I am sure 1 can make you happy. You are my love, my soul, my life. I adore you. (Signed) 0. Guinle." Miss Borcten went with Mr. Guinle to a Roman Catholic church to arrange for the marriage, and on January 29th Guinle said he could not marry her because his mother objected, but that he would "always be her friend." His farewell note read Adieu, I love you. Millions and millions of kisses. Good-bye." One reason why Miss Borden thm I t Guinle was going to sail away was because a, short time ago he sent her aM the cook- ing utensils he kept in his expensive rooms in Ansonia. Plaintiff asks for £ 100,000 dam- ages, and says defendant is worth P,12,500,
Would Have Been a Fine Bag." The following story ot Mr. Justice Bucknill, who is retiring, is told in the "Ohronicle." His lordship on one occa- sion when out shooting issued an injunc- tion. On the case coming into court counsel said, Your lordship may re- member this case." He replied, I do indeed, because I nearly killed a pheas- ant, a barrister, and a solicitor with one barrel."
LICENSEES' ORDEALi I ANNUAL SURVEY. I MANY SWANSEA OBJEC- TIONS. I The annual Brewster Sessions for the 'borough of Swansea were held at the Guild- liall on Thursday morning, Mr. Jo-hji Roberts, chairman of the Licensing Bench., presiding, the other magistrates including the Mayor (Ald. T. T. Corkier), Messrs. J. W. Jone3, W. Thomas, Wm. Williams, and F. Edwards. It was intimated at the out- set that ths Bench would sit until live o'clock, and then adjourn to Friday, if neceissarv. THE POLICE OBJECTIONS. Objections were offered by the police to the following licenses:— New Inn, Pentre-chwyth, licensee, Margt. Ross McCondre. Copperma-n's Arms, NeatJh-road-Lydia. Hancock.

Y,. Shorrock. Three Orceins. High-street—M. Delaney. MR. RICHARD WATKINS' OBJEC- TIONS. -Mr. Wfitkins had served notices of objec- tion on the New Inn, Compass Inn, Angel Inn, Victoria Hotel, Rutland Arms, Hea?h- HeM Hotel, ??ste Hart, and the Three Crowns. At the outset Mr. R. Watkins also gave notice of objection on the grounds of re- dundancy and structural defects, to the fol- owing houses:- Lord Nelson, High-street; Cross Keys, St. Mary-street Bridge Inn, Ferryside; A house with no sign in Castle-square; The Woolpack, Waterloo-street; Rising Sun, Matthew-street. THE NEW INN. PENTRECHWYTH. was the first objected license taken. Mr. Lawrence Richards appeared for the police. Inspector Fielder said the house was tied to the Old Brewery; average takings £ 15 a week. The house was in good condition; there were two other public-houses in the neighbourhood. HhoB r yiu4i not think it re- quired. There were no complaints, and the trade had increased of late. Supt. Roberts thought two houses would meet local needs. P.B. Evans and P.C. Hill agreed. Mr. Rd. Wat-kins considered two houses would suf- fice. Replying to Mr. Isaac (who represent- ed the licensee) he said he thought the centre of the three licenses should go.—The Bench deferred their decision. THE COPPERMAN'S ARMS was tne second house taken. This was a seven days' license. Verv old house and not necessary, said Inspector Fielder. Supt. Roberts considered the house could very well be spared; redun- dancy was the objection. Mr. W. A. James, who represented the licensee, called Mrs. Hancock. who said they did not do much Sunday trade. CWMBWRLA INN, Larmarthen-road (licensee, Maurice Murphy) was a six days' license. Inspector Fielder said the average takings was given Rs JB25 to £30; trade, 7 barrel, 20 dozen ales and stouts, 5 dozen minerals, 30 dozen flagons, and 7 gallons of spirits. There were four other houses within 350 yards: one house less would meet the needs of the district. The only objection wa. to the back entrance, which was unsuitable for supervision. Supt. Roberts and Mr. R. Watkins only objected to the back door and the stables, and Mr. D. Clarke, for the tenants, said they were prepared to meet these objections. The superintendent described the house as ex- cellent structurally, and well kept and very busy. COMPASS INN, Pentregethin-rocid (licensee, James Evans), a seven days' license. Inspector Roberts said the owners were Messrs. Hancocks trade, 6-7 barrels a week, 52 dozen flagons, 30 doz-en ales and stouts, and 7 gallons spirits; average takings, £ 30— £ 35 a week. He thought two houses would meat local needs in place of the four there now. Inspector Fielder was cross-examined by Mr Gaskell, who suggested that ob- jections would be met by certain struc- tural alterations. Supt. Roberts said that the Compass was not. neoess-arv. "LESS LICENSES: LESS CRIME." Inspector Lloyd a,nd Mr. Richard Wat- Kins aloo opposed the renewal, and the latter argued that a diminution in crime follower a reduction of licensed houses. ]n the past ten years 80 or 90 licenses had been taken away, a.nd the result had been less crime. He quoted the case of Liverpool, and added what he said would be of interest to Swansea, that as a re- sult or the reduction of a number of licenced houses 103 policemen were dis- charge, At Swansea ho argued there had also been a diminution in crime, duo to the fewer temptations to drink. If the house were wiped out a third of the takings would be saved, the other two- thirds going to the other houses' in tho neighbourhood. That was his invariable experience. Mr. Gaskell said that the lessees (Messis. Hancock and Co., brewers), were prepared to rebuild the house, not that it is at present structurally bad, but that if the house was wanted it was ob- 1 vious that it should be of the best. It: was a, seven days' license, but there was no Sunday trade done, and Messrs. Han- 1 cock did not want it, but they were bound by the covenants of their lease, and therefore could not offer to accept a six days' license. THE AFTERNOON'S PROCEFnTNGS' After lunch Mr. Gaskell said that the! lessees had communicated with the agents of Sir Courtenay Mansel, the owner, and they had consented to a six days' license being applied for, and he (counsel) pro- posed to do. that. In other evidence it transpired that the plans for rebuilding proposed to cover a larger spa.oo than that at present occu- pied, but Mr. Gaskell pointed out that the club-room was being given up, and increased space allowed behind the bar counter. The Benah retired, and subsequently the Chairman int.imated that the application to -pabuild on the lines indicated was refused. Mil". Gaskell tliaai applied for the renewal of a. six days' license only, at the sa.me time giving an undertaking to produce a scheme at the adjourned Sessions of rebuilding or alterations that would niest with the ap- proval of the justices. The further hearing was oonsequently ad- journed. ANGEL INN. The An Inn, Carmarthen-road, was next taken. Mr. Mariay Samson (instructed by Messrs. Aaron Thorn,'is and Co.) appeared for the lessee (Swansea United Brewery Company) and owners. Inspector Fielde/r said it was a six days' license, licensee, Mr. W. H. Miles, rent L2,6 per annum, very poor house, but doing a d trade with workmen from the Cwm- felin Works. Supt. Roberts, Inspector Roberts and Mr. Watkins also gave evidence. Mr. Samson cross-examined to show that the house, by reason of its trade, was re- quired, and t-hait it was practically in an isolated position. He stated that in six yerairs the trade had more than doubled. The decision was reserved.
Miss Annie Thomas, Swansea-road, Llanelly, was successful at the recent examination for female learners at the Post Office. After about two years' efficient and thor- oughly appreciated service in the Swansea Valley town, Miss Jones, the C'lvdach di .trict nurse,, has resigned her position.

￼ ??? ??? BE?T ?M?HM PROJECT. 1 COLD STORAGE SCHEME. APPROVED BY HARBOURI TRUST. I At a meeting of Swansea Harbour Execu- tive on Thursday, Sir Griffith Thomas (chair- man) presiding, it was decided to approve of the big oold storage scheme which has j been exclusively foreshadowed in the "Daily Post." A London cold stores company had made certain proposals to the Trustees whereby they shouldered a portion of the financial responsibilities. The combined total ex- panditure will run into $1,50,CW, of which it is understood the Trustees will risk £ 30,000. The accommodation to be provided in the I new stores is half a million cubic feet. 1 FAR-REACHING EFFECTS. I Not only will Swansea by this provision become a distributing depot for the South- West and Midlands, but by fresh lines com- ing he-which are practically guaranteed —considerable impetus will be given to our coal and general export trade. Not. only will frozen and chilled meat be stored at Swansea, but fruit, eggs, etc. All the plans and specifications for the new stores have been prepared, and all that is required now is to advertise for tenders. Local foreign meat firms and others greatly favour the enterprise.. One big company- Armour'¡;¡--hM three distributing centres in the country—London, Liverpool, and South- ampton. Often they have 4,000 quarters of beef alone arriving with other cargo. Swan- sea stands A BIG CHANCE of securing the distributing trade for these I firms within, say, a two hundred nines radius. As one wholesale manager put it to a. "Daily Post" reporter on Thursday after- noon, "it all depends upon the rates. If we can discharge and store cheaper at Swan- sea the port will get the trade." In big cold stores the trade is of an in and jout character all the time. Little remains there for any length of time, and conse- quently tho constant turnover is a great asset. Tenders will be invited shortly.
!MET IN ￼ 'MET IN HOTEL LOUNGE. DIVORCE COURT TALE OF INFATUATION. RATHER HAPPY FOR A I GRASS WIDOW." In the Divorce Court on Wednesday Mrs. Emma. Gordon, residing at Maidenhead, sought restitution of conjugal rights against her hushed, Mr. Charles Edward Grant Gordon, of Burgess HiH, Brighton. Mr. Gordon in a cross-suit claimed a divorce from his wife on the ground of her alleged adul- tery, which was denied. Counsel for the husband said Mr. Gordon was possessed of considerable means. He met a lady by accident in the lounge of an hotel in London. She told him with the greatest possible frankness what her past life had been, and that she had a child of whom she had to take care who was not the child of the gentleman she had been living with.

J. B. JOEL SUED. ——— "PRINCE PALATINE" PURCHASE OF FAMOUS RACEHORSE. The hearing was continued in the King's Bench on Wednesday of the action in which Capt. Thomas Henry Browne, retired Army officer, claims from Mr. J. B. Joel, the well- known city magnate, £ 2,000 commission which plaintiff says is due to him on the purchase by defendant of the racehorse .Prinoe Palatine. Mr. Joel gave evidence and said he never at any time commissioned plaintiff to purchase the horse. He never authorised Capt. Browne to offer £ 45,COO for the ani- ma l and never authorised him to make any definite offer for the horse at the Newmar- ket October meeting. Plaintiff said lie. waa NEGOTIATING FOR LORD ST. DAVIDS in connection with the horse, but witness made no objection. Had he been his (wit- ness's) agent ho should most certainly hava objected at Goodwood. After he had purchas- ed Prince Palatine plaintiff came and con- gratulated witness. He came again a second time and said he had been badly treated by Mr. Pilkington, and asked wit- ness to do all he could to help him to get his commission. Witness added that the statement that he discussed the question of purchase of Prince Palatine with Capt. Browne at Childwickhury was a fabrication. Mr. Pilkington, the former owner of Prince Palatine, deposed that in Decem- ber, 1912. piaintift told him he represent- ed Lord St. David's. Lord St. David's next gave evidence of a. suggestion of his to prevent the horsa leaving the country. Witness had been referred to plaintiff. jYerdict in the "Prince Palatine i Case. I Case. i ?
