At Ammanford Police Court. on Monday (Nov. 23), Mr. Eraiifi, the well- known chemist of Ammanford. who also holds a wine and spirittteeatae Î11 connec- tion with his shop, was summoned for selling a bottle of whisky dm-ing illegal hours, on Nov. lgt. Mr. Novas having plicited from Deputy Chief Constable Evans that the case was simply one of supplying the whisky during illegal hours, pleaded guilty, and urged, m extenuation, that it was through the miMaken kindness of Mrs. Evans that the sale occurred. She had seen the man there previously that day with the doctor's pjftscription, and, seeing that he looked ill, (If; he -undoubtedly was. she. after much persuasion, supplied him with the bottle of whisky.—The Magistrates said they weq-o very sorry to have to convict. They knew Mr. Hva.ns had carried on busi- ness satisfactorily for many years, but Mrs. Evans ought not to have consented to the man's plea in this instance, and Mr. Evans was responsible for Mrs. Evans's act;on.-A fine of £1. including costs, would be indict-ed.
