AFTER SIX YEARS. I Strange Paternity Case at Llandovery. ) A paternity < aso, iu which considerable local interest was taken on account of the peculiar circumstances surrounding it, was heard at the Llandovery Police Court on Friday. The applicant was Mary Ann Jones, a. domestic servant in service at Bryniowy, Llandovery, and the defendant Alfred J'ugh, It), Bryn-terrace, Resolven. Mr. Flivs W. Trice, soli<>itor, Llandovery, was for complainant, and Mr. Harold Lloyd, Cardiff, for defendant. From Mr. Price's statement, which was corroborated by complainant and her wit- nesses, it appeared that in November, 1 HOli. was in the service at Llwynberllan Farm, Llandovery, and de- fendant came to service there in the [ N ovember folio wing. Intimacy was alleged to have taken place between the parties in 19fts. and continued up to the time she left the place. The child nas born two or three weeks later. Defendant; was afterwards seen by complainant's step-father, who lives at Crow -iiiii, LI an- dovery, and gave him £ 1. Afterwards defendant took complainant's box to her father's house, when lie gave her another j 10s. Defendant at the time was only ?,e 011 the Istli of about 151 years of age. On the 18th of November, 1900. defendant signed an agreement admitting paternity and agree- ing to pay 2s. 6d. per week towards the maintenance of the child. On the same occasion he accompanied the step-fat her to Llwynberllan, when he gave him another sovereign. He also promised to send his address, but had not done so, and the complainant was only able to get it after a lapse of six years, just before taking out the summons. Meanwhile nothing had been paid by ritfen(laiii,I Defendant denied paternity, and alleged that ha had caught complainant in the barn in a compromising position with another man. He said that he had only given £ 1, that hr> was not aware of the contents of that, agreement; when he signed it. and that he had been terrorised by de fendant's < tep-fathcr, w ho had threaf' to shoot him.

u. -_u MINISTER INJURED AT SOLDIER'S HOMECOMING. At no previous period during the history oi Fforestfach has such a scone been wit- nessed as that which marked the home- coming of Gunner ffenry Main waring, of the Itoyal Field Artillery, on Friday evening. Having been called up at the outset of the war, Gunner Mam waring participated in all the fighting up to the middle of July, wiien his shoukier was dislocated through falling off the gun car- riage. After a sjjort -stay at the base hos- pital, he was transferred to Net lev Hos- pital, whence he proceeded home on Friday. He was met at Swacsea by con- veyances bearing the following: Kevs. J. Davies, (.ladle; E. J. Hughes, Calfaria; D. L. Daniel, St. llltyd's; Councillor Tom Hopkins, Mr. Clement, and others. The procession formed strengthened consider- ably as the journey draw nearer to its close, and when an entry was made into Fforestfach, which had heen fittingly decorated, the lead was taken by the Waunarlwvdd brass baud, under tho con- ductorship of Air. B. J. Clarke. Never before has there been such a pro- cession in the locality, and great credit is due to Sprgt. Taylor, County Police Station, who was responsible for the ar- rangements. When Garden Village, where Gunner Mainwaring lives, was reached, he thanked all concerned for his warm wel- come, and appropriate addresses were de- livered by the Kevs. D. L. Daniel. J. Davies, E. J. Hughes, Messrs. Tom Hop- kins and Ben Jones. The hero of the hour was then carried shoulder high into the house Just then a Pad accident occurred, which cast a gloom over the vast assembly". Aid. Rev. J. Davies fell out of the moving brake, and had to be conveyed home on a stretcher by a squad of local ambulance men, who rendered first aid—Sergt. Tay- lor, Messrs. Kees levies, J'om Williams, D. Avery, Tom Hopkins, Phil Austin, T. Elliot, and D. Williams. Drs. Howells, Swansea, and W. J. Greehv, Fforestfach, were summoned, and found the rev. gentle- man suffering from a fractured thigh. Universal regret was felt at so ead an end- ing to a pleasing function.

RETRIEVING HIS HONOUR. I A soldier, wbooe ncime and regiment are, for obvious reasons, withheld, has gone to fight in Flanders after retrieving his repu- tation and regaining confiscated medals won in the South African War. He served with great distinction in South Africa. and was in the thick of all the im- portani engagements. He won several decoration*. When peaec. wa-s declared Tie left his regiment before the dismissal order was given. For this he was court-mar- tialled and sentenced to fifteen months in (prison. He was aleo dismissed the Army and his decorations were taken from him. Half his imprisonment was served in South Africa and the other half in England. When the present war broke out, he saw a chance of winning back his honour. He went straight to the military authorities and made a, clean breast of the whole affair. He asked to be allowed to rejoin his old regiment, and after due consideration his appeal was granted and hi? South African medalg were returned to him. He has been in the trenches for many months and he i- for the second time yrov- j itig himself a hero. i

About one p.m. he hoied a hole abotk; iive feet long in the barrier of coal that lay between hin; and his son and de- ceased. Witness -aid he sent the lad Thomas to warn those on the other side that he was going to charge the hole, and again gave the necessary warning knocks, which were answered before he attached the igniter. He then shouted Fire," and retired to a place of safety, which was about 2o vai,(I., from the hole. Wit- ness sajd that in about eight to ten min- iites tlip, shot went off. His son after- wards told him that they on the other side had heard a in the coal, and thinking that it was the shot going off lie and deceased returned to their working places, with the result that they met the full force of the explosion.

When on his way he heard a faint voice, shouting for help, coming from the direction where deceased was working. He ran towards them and found Jones on his face with a or coal on his leg.

MISSING FOR A YEAR. I When the war broke out one of the first of the Re-- servists to respond to the call was Corporal Phillip Jones, of the 2nd Manchester*. He was drafted to France with the original Expedi- tionary Force, but since October of last year all trace of hini has been I' lost. The last seen of him was in a turnip hold, where [ lie was lying on the ground behind a hedge, firing nt the advancing Germans as fast as he could pull the trigger. His wife, who is at present iu Swansea, is anxious to glean definite ?n'w? of his fate. He carried with him a ?d watch, and she has since rend in a newspaper of a gold watch which was picked up in a turnip field. Whether that was her hus- band's she was unable to say. Corporal Jones was the youngest son of the la?e ?fr. Phinip Jones, of Chemical- road. Swansea. ?piCre h'? war he was a ?') lc" at i/nry n'-h''?. W :n-!»\ Ch?hire. where Hrs. Jones still resides.
I A N'GHT IN THE I TRENCHES. STORY OF AN ATTACK. After twenty-four hours in reserve it; was our turn to go back into the firing line and relieve A Company. Wo took over A. Company's trendies at dusk, Mati ey going with each platoon commander, showing him his section, and giving orders about the posting of groups and improvement of cover. There, was no sound from the front, and it looked as though we should Vie undisturbed. One [ by one tho stars camp out, the night grew colder, and I pulled on my greatcoat. It was weird lying ther" in the darkness, hearing nothing, seeing nothing, with only the dark shape* of the men on each side and the occasional tinkle of an entrench- ing tool again a stone to remind one that one was taking part in a great war. X As T lay there I heard far away o» the right the sound of "ifle firp. Were they "ur troops or the French? Perhaps it was one of our divisions which we had bee? told was swinging round on our flank. So the division had done its march and was lighting now. I was glad we were not. It was much better to lie peacefully in a ditch. Hullo! The sound of tiring was drawing nearer and swelling in ■ volume. That must be the brigade on our right engaged. Ah! There were two sharp j shots from the farm where the next com- pany lay. Pass along the word for every man to .stand to," I called, jumping to my feet. Sergeant X., I said to the N.C.O. next to IT) e, -o down. the, trench and see that every man is awake." I'lit! I)Iit! pbi I ducked down into the trench. Half a dozen bullets came -singing through the hedge. There was sharp firing now on our right. The next company waf evidently engaged. Away beyond the rifle fire had swelled into one big crash of sound. Sud- denly a hot fire broke out in front of us. To the left I heard our two Maxims, like watchdogs, barking N-ici-ous) I t- was a night attack, then—the enemy had come I up to have a go at us. rr Qaiek-get irdo the trench and line along to your left. Where do you want me? I looked up and saw Mulligan hurrying his men into my trench. He had been sent up with his platoon from the Reserve Company to strengthen the line. Anywhere you like, old boy," I called back; but I should get. down out of that quick." The bullets were literally si ni ng ronnd him. Our men were now all standing up to the parapet, firing into the night. No. 5 platoon are running short < f ammunition," the word came down fli2 trench. Tell Xn. li to pass along any they have to spare and save their fire as much as possible," I ordered. It was going to be a tight business this, with the enemy's fire growing hotter every minute and our ammunition supply running short. Again the message came down, No 5 platoon are running short of ammuni- tion." ? £ I looked at Sergeant X. We had already sent men back for fresh supplies. I'll go back. Sir," said Sergeant X. If seemed impossible for him to get out of the trencii and cross the bullet-swept open ground. Still, it was the only thing to be done. I nodded. Grasping his rifle, he turned to clamber out of the trench. Just as he was going a voice from behind called, Where will you have this, Sir?" There-was a thump behind, and two men rolled over into the trench dragging a box of ammunition after them. They sat up and mopped their foreheads. Lord! it's like hail out there," said one of them breathlessly, and that stuff weighs about a ton," pointing to the box of ammunition. Well, come on, mate," and back they went; out of the trench to the rear for more. Sergeant X and I wrenched the lid off the box of ammunition and started passing the bandoliers down tho trench. these right along to Xo. 5 Pla- toon," I ordered. A second box was brought up by two more panting men. I distributed the contents among my own platoon. This put a better complexion on things. T What do we do if they chai,ge-Pt out and meet em?" I asked. My sergeant had had more experience of action than 1, and ) felt 1 could well afford to ask his advice. Just stay where we are, sir," he answered; but they won't do that: they like these"—be tapped his bayonet. He was a splendidly calm fellow, that sergeant, and it was good to feel him firm as a rock heside me. All mon, N.C.O.e, oiffcers, and privates, instinctively lean towards each other when the corner is tight. For the next fve hours the firing con- tinued, sometimes dying down, sometimes swelling to a sharp volley. Ammunition j boxes arrived and were emptied. There were moments of acute anxiety when the supply seemed running short. Each man was told to keep fifteen rounds by him :.t all costs to meet a charge. Sergeant X bent steadily over his rifle, pumping lead into the dark patch where the enemy appeared to be. Sometimes Ii could hear guttural voices and harsh words of command, somewhere away there in the blackness the enemy were lying. I could see c learly for about forty yards. Would masses of dark |shapes suddenly appear? They should! have ten rounds from the rifle, then six j from the revolver, and then the bayonet would bo left. Furtively under cover of I the parapet I lit a cigarette, and holding it well screened from the front, puffed big satisfying gasps. All the while ,the rifles rattled like the sharp ticking of a clock. >}; t The firing grew quieter and from the! front there was now only an occasional s hot. I suddenly felt sleepy, as though lulled by the rattle of the rifle fire. I sat down a moment on the edge of my dug-out. Mr. Mulligan's compliments, and could you tell liiin ti-i- time, f;Îr" n I pulled myself together with a start. By Jove. I had nearly been asleep. "What's the time Sergenat?" I asked. There was no reply. Sergeant X was nodding as he stood, arms folded over hi, rifle. He too as the firing died down had been over- come by sleep. I sent back the time to Mulligan, each man passing the message to the man next him. "Mr. Mulligan's compliments, ami would you like a biscuit. Sir?" A biscuit was pressed into my hand which had come the same way Ut- the message. "Mr. 's compliments to Mr. Mul- ligan, and would he care for a piece of cheese?" wrapped a piece of cheese in a piece of paper and sent it back. So we kept passing messages to one an- other all through the night, and no man slept. With the enemy a hundred yards away it was advisable they should not; At last the dawn broke, and we saw the ground clear in front of us.—" Platoon Commander in the Westminster Gazette."

They then proceeded to the gate, and after giving their tickets to the defendant they went down the slope (leading -to the road. As they were doing so they heard the boy who had by this! time roiled the churn to the gate, shout- ing for help. Complainant walked back. and there she saw defendant with out- stretched arms refusing to allow the boy to take the churn out. Complainant asked why he refused, but she received no answer. He then caught hold of the churn, and while doing so the defendant struck her a violent blow under the right eye, with the result that complainant fell to the ground.
