Ti-e there- fore thought lie was entitled to all osts. —The husbf.nd's appd;;a'ion was btrrk out, and he was ordered to ray j guineas costs. I Thursday was observed as the Aberavon and Port Talbot shop assistants' annual holiday.

Bailey said lie received a telephone message from Port Talbot. and he stopped defendant at Taihach. The rear light of the car was extinguished. 'Mr. Lewis M. Thomas (on behalf of defendant) said his client left his garage in a hurry. Before leaving he gave orders to an employee to light the rear lamp. This the employee forgot to do. with the result that Mr. Clarke was rot aware of the lamp being unlit until lie was stopped by the constable at Tal- bach. In the circumstances he asked that ihe caeQ be dismissed, otherwise his client's license would be endorsed. The case Mas dismissed on payment of costs. At Aberavon on Monday, Wm. Davies, Taibach, was charged with travelling on the Great Western Railway without pro- ducing his ticket. Mr. H. Henderson for the company said defendant arrived at Port Talbot from Xeath, and when he passed out handed a portion of an old market ticket to the porter. When asked fur a proper ticket defendant could not find it. It was now, however, found that defendant had a ticket, and the company wished to withdraw the summons. This was granted, defendant being ordered to pay 5s. costs. POLICEMAN ASSAULTED. At Aberavon on Monday (before Messrs. Geo. Longdon and Ald. Dd.
