Lewis gave evidence to the effect that after speaking to a man who was drunk in charge of a horse and trap opposite the Farmers' Arms, defendant asked witness not to say anything about the matter as it would be against him, he having only a temporary transfer of the licence.—At 6.45 p.m., while in company with P.S. Bullock a complaint was made by a cyclist that a horse and cart had run into him between Llanfoist and Govilon, and on witness going to the Farmers' Arms for the names of the men in the trap before-meutioned, the landlord asked him to have a drink, which he refused.

CHEPSTOW. I POLICE COURT, THURSDAY. I Before GODFREY Siits, Esq. I ALLEGED ADVERTISING FRAUDS. I At Chepstow, on Thursday, Edward A. Yeates, 31, upholsterer, of Bank-square, Chepstow, and whose recent addresses included Abergavenny, Ross, and Criokhowell, was charged with stealing £5, the property of Luther Edward Martin, a youth, of Tuhs Hill, Seven Oaks, Kent. Prosecutor stated that in response to an advertise- ment in a newspaper he came to Chepstow on October 18th. Accused met him at the station, when witness handed him a chequs for £ 5 as an apprentice- ship fee to the cabinet making, upholstering, and general trade. He was asked to bring the money with him, as he (prisoner) was rather hard up at the time, although his father wrote to say that it was usual to send the money after the lad had started the apprenticeship. Prisoner replied that the t5 was worth double to him just then, and it was decided that witness should take the cheque with him to Chepstow. The agreemeut was that if be did not like the prisoner, and the prisoner showed a dislike to him at the expiration of one month, accused was to return the J60 and witness's railway fare to Kent. Prisoner was to give him Is 6d a week, with board and lodging and washing. On the second day following his arrival witness said he did not like the place, and asked for his L5 and I railway fare home. Prisoner replied that he was homesick. Then Yeates got a boy down from Morton-in-Marsh, in Gloucestershire, but he did not tile- him and he had no wish to keep him. MVitness wrot- to his father, who repli«d that if he cured to remain he could, adding, that his mother was greatly distressed to hear that he did not like the place. He again wrote home, saying he thought he could atop, and things went on all right until recently, when he did not like tha way prisoner went on, and on Tuesday last witness made up his mind to return did not like tha way prisoner went on, and on Tuesday last witness made up his mind to return home, and asked accused for his E5 and railway fare. I Yeates said be would not give him his railway fare because he had been greatly inconvenienced, adding that had he known he might have advertised and got another boy down. He further stated that the £ 5 was nothing to do with him (witness) and tht»t it was an arrangement between his father and him- self. Witness replied that he should not leave without the JE5. Prisoner said he should have nothing more to say, and that he felt like giving him good thrashing. Witness was sent on an errand on Wednesday, and gave information to the sergeant of police. In the oourse of a conversation he ascertained that accused wanted £ 10, and called witness's father a scoundrel.P.S. Groves, Chepstow, deposed that from information recoived he went to prisoner's bout-e in Bank-square on the previous day iu company with P.C. Head, and told him that he held a warrant for his arrest for stealing X5, the property of Luther Edward Martin. Accused replied, I bad the money. It came through the boy from his father. I must get a living." Witness mentioned that in all probability another charge would be brought against the prisoner by the Public Prosecutor in respect of S26 which he obtained about six weeks ago. He had been in the habit of advertising in a number of papers. One, advertisement in the Weekly Argus, was as iollows:—" Wanted, immediately, lady with 120 to join another in small restaurant and boarding houso." Prisoner never had any such business in Chepstow. Accused replied that be had nothing to do with that. His wife inserted the advertisement. P.S. Groves asked for a remand until Tuesday next, and opposed bail. The magistrates allowed bail, prisoner in £ 50, and two sureties of 925 each.
MONMOUTH. I I COUNTY COURT, TUESDAY. I I Before His Honour Judge OWEN. I NON-SUITED. -Richard Townsend, stone quarry proprietor, Coleford, sued John Fawdry, builder, Foregate-street, Worcester, for .£32 9s 4d for stone supplied. The transaction was by letter, which showed that plaintiff offered three months' credit and commenced an action for the recovery of the debt before that time had elapsed. Plaintiff was non-suited, with costs. REMOVING A BRIDGIL-William Brown. Trelleck, sued Mary Parry, widow, Botany Bay, for 15 damage for removing a small stone bridge over a brook near her house. It appeared that there was a right of way by a footpath passing defendant's house. Defendant's husband bad made the bridge some sixty years ago by placing three flag stones across the brook,-His Honour said the bridge had been used by the public, and defendant had no right to remove it. Judgment for plaintiff, the t5 to be reduced to Is if the bridge was re- placed before the next court. DEFECTIVE WOBK.—Morgan, Bros., hay merchants, Monmouth, sued the Monmouth Steam Sawmills Co., for £ 6 5s for defective work in mowing and stacking hay, and S5 6s had been paid into court.-His Honour gave judgment for I plaintiff for the amount paid into Court.
I NEWPORT. I POLICE COURT, SATURDAY. FALSB PRETENCES.—John Jarrett Gould, an elderly man. of Rogerstone, was charged with obtaining sums of money from three perfona by false pretences.—Detective Graves proved the arrest. Gould raid he had been unable to get food for his children, and he had thought of committing suicide, so distressed was his condition. He was a traveller for Horton, of London." Prisoner now pleaded guilty. He had been in the Pontymistar Foundry for seventeen years, and in the Cwmbran pits for five years. Then he lost an arm through a lathe accident, and he had to take to travelling. But his health was bad, his wife died. and he had had a hard struggle. His landlord threatened to turn him out, and he did not know what to do for money. He had five cbildren.-The Bench told defendant his offence was a cruel one, but, because he was a cripple, they would be lenient, and fine him 21s, or ten days' for each offence.

Co., Blaenavon, was J summoned by Mary Ann Morgan, single, Stony Road, Garndiffaith, to show Cause, &c.— Complainant repeated her evidence, and John Phillips, forfiffian ill the Loco Department L.N.W.R. Co., Blaenavon, stated that in his opinion the letters put in by the complainant were in the defendant's handwriting. These letters were stated to have been written at various datca by the defendant to complainant, appointing dates and places of meeting. The defendant afterwards went into the box and denied that he was the father of the child, or that he had written the )etters.-The magistrates, however, made an order of 3s per week, and £01 4s costs.—The case had been adjourned from the previous week, when the magistrates would not swear defendant, on account of his being under the influence of drink. ALLEGED CBUELTY—John Gwynne, chimney sweep, and Ada Gwynne, were summoned for neglecting and exposing their five ohildren in a manner likely to canoe them unnecessary suffering at Trostrey, near Usk, on the 31st October.—Mr Everett, solicitor, Pontypool, appeared for the R.S.P.C.C., and applied for the issue of a warrant against John Gwynne.—This wan granted, and I the case was adjourned for a week.

THE ESQUIMAUX. I Commander Peary—if a stay-at-home in- habitant of the temperate zone mAy offer an opinion—seems to have a right idea when he takes Esquimaux with him on his Polar excursions, and it is possible that if Audre had done the same he might still have been 0 with us. These people, who are estimated to number something like 40,000, are an interesting race,although,like some oriental cities, they are seen to greater advantage at a distance. Some of their habits can only be described as filthy, and it was scathingly remarked by Dr Robert Brown that the accumulation of smoke, grease, and other dirt which covers their skin "varies accor- ding to the age of the individual." In summer they dwell in skin tents, and in winter in half underground huts of stone, earth, and turf, which are entered by a long tunnel-like passage. But the accomplish- meut which makes them invaluable to the traveller is the ability to construct temporary huts out of blocks of snow, with a sheet of ice for a window. Necessity has made them expert hunters and fishers, and the animals which they kill supply them with food, clothing, light, and fuel. If they can boil their food so much the better, if not they eat it raw, the point which concerns them most being that of the quantity avail- able. There is a saying in India respecting one who is dependable, that he is the sort of man to go tiger hunting with," and similarly it may be said of the Esquimaux that they are the sort of people to go ex- ploring with in the inhospitable regions within the arctic circle. j ABOUT AIRSHIPS. However incredible such a thing may have appeared a few years ago, there seems every reason to believe that we are within a measurable distance of seeing the airships applied to practical purposes. M Santos Dumout has already demonstrated the dirigibility of his airship by alighting at hia own door, and equally convincing evidence has been afforded by the Lebaudy balloon, which was brought down in the Champs de Mars as the aeronaut intended. It is scarcely likely that travelling by airship will come to be regarded as a popular pas- time, but there are many uses to which such a machine could be put. The present idea appears to be that its greatest potenti- alities will be displayed in time of war, and no doubt it could in such an event work great havoc. It is to be hoped, however, that an European conference will be Held to exclude such methodsfrom civilised warfare, and that the ingenious and intrepid scien- tists to whom we owe the development of the airship may divert their efforts to the pleasanter arts of peace. In this connection it has been suggested that the airship will be able to elude the customs, but it is scarcely likely, seeing that, however rapidly such a machine may travel, the electric telegraph will still be before it. LEGISLATION BY REFERENCE. I Many lawyers have ridiculed the system of legislation by reference which is gener- ally adopted in amending statutes, and one writer-we think it was Mr Sergeant Ro bi napa- compared it to a specification which stated merely that the parts of a house were to resemble the corresponding parts of other houses in different parts of London. Legislation by reference is ex- tremely irritating and troublesome to those laymen who purchase a copy of an act of Parliament with the idea that it will give them all the law on the subject, and it occasionally presents other difficulties which are not intended by Parliament. For instance the Act for the extension of County Court jurisdiction, which was passed this year, says that the word five in section 102 of the County Courts Act, 1888, is to read eight." The intention was to in- crease the number of jurors, but it now appears that in section 102 the word "five refers both to the number of jurors and to the penalty incurred by defaulting jurymen, so that if the Act is to be construed literally the penalty will be increased from L5 to Y, 8. TO WOULD-BE JOURNALISTS. I Something ought to be said concerning I the inducements which are being offered to young people to qualify themselves for the I profession of journalism. In these days of fierce competition there is no avocation so overcrowded as that of the newspaper press. To place the matter on the lowest ground it is not to the interest of a newspaper to mis- represent this matter, because the more a profession is crowded the leas a proprietor has to pay in salaries; but if the most practical evidence is sought one has only to turn any day to page two of the Daily News which is the organ for such advertisements, and it will then be seen how greatly the announcements of situations wanted, out number those of situations vacant. The number of invitations to candidates to "invest"—which in most cases means paying their own salaries-is another indica- tion that journalists are supposed to be anxious to take situations on any terms. It should further be remembered that the amount of effort which is required to secure a moderate income on the newspaper press would suffice in almost any other occupa- tion to amass a fortune.

AUTHORS' ORIGINALS. 1 The case in which damages were awarded I for an alleged libel in Major Woodgate's I novel has evoked the suggestion that Dickens and many other novelists carica- tured living persons in their stories. No I doubt, the majority of Dickens' characters had originals in the flesh, and indeed, consciously or unconsciously, a novelist who] wishes to write a book possessing great 1 human interest must necessarily make his people more or less like persons whom one meets. A novel on the lines of Paradise Lost describing people whom we do not know would scarcely be likely to prove a f brilliant success According to Mr James Payn the young writer's first novel gener- ally describes a hero who resembles the hero himself, and u David Copperfield is a case in point. But the deliberate intro- duction of a person so like a living original that anybody could recognise the likeness was a thing that Dickens always repudiated. In the second and subsequent editions of "Nicholas Nickleby" he denied for example that the Cheeryble Brothers represented any particular persons,although there might be many who answered the description, and the fact that the supposed originals have been pointed to at Maidstone. Man- chester, and other places widely apart, lends confirmation to the writer's disclaimer.
The Accident near Usk. SHOCKING INJURIES. Mr M. Roberts-Jones, district coroner, held an inquest on the body of William O'Brien, at the Sessions House, Usk, this (Friday) afternoon. Mr T. Rees, jr was chosen foreman of the jury. Evidence was given by Mr Hammond, the lad Morse, Charles Morgan (Penyglobe, Llangibby), and Dr E. L. M. Hackett (Usk), which bore out practically the story told under the Usk news heading. n Dr Hackett described the injuries, which included fracture of the upper ribs on the right side, puncture of the lungs causing I free hemorrhage and the admission of air to the skin under the right armpit, and fracture of the larynx, either of which injuries was sufficient to cause death. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
< THE DANGBR OF FLANNELETTE,—At Pontypridd Police Court on Tuesday afternoon the district coroner (Mr E. B. Reece) held an inquiry into the death of Rachel Mills, daughter of James Mills, collier, Pontypridd, who succumbed to burns sustained while she was lighting the fire at five o'clock on Saturday moriiing.-Dr Alfred E. Morton, who was called, attributed death to shock as a result of the injuries received.—Mrs Mills said the girl wore a flannelette nightgown. She told her that a spark from the fire set her nightgown alight.—A verdict of Accidental death was returned.—The Coroner, addressing the jury, said the case was a very sad one, and that flannelette was the most dangerous article it was possible to use. A number of cases of death from burning had come before him, often brought about through it. A-spark would not set flannel, or even cotton, on fire, but one spark w;Juld set flannelette in a blaze. This was a fact that should be made as widely known as possible, aud the material should not be used by people who lit fires or did anything of that kind, because it wai so dangerous.
I THE EAB OF DIOKVSITTS. A cunningly-constructed prison cavern, consisting of a large chamber connected with one of smaller dimensions, situated near Syracuse, Italy, has gon6 into legendary history with the title of the "Ear of Dionysius." The smaller chamber was unknown to the prisoners kept in this underground dungeon, and the tyrant by whose name it is known had a habit of secreting himself there to listen to the conversation of the convicts, who were mostly political offenders. An ingenious device constructed at the smaller end of the larger chamber transmitted the sounds through the partition, thus enabling the suspicious ruler to hear even the whispered con- versations of his "suspects."
I THE WORLD'S CREEDS. Herr Zeller, head of the bureau of international statistics at Stuttgart, has published an interesting table of the religions of the world. He places the aggregate number of human beings on the earth's surface at 1,544,516,000, of whom only about one- third, or 534,940,000, profess any form of Chris- tianity. The adherents of Confucius number 300,000,000, of Brahma 173,290,000, and of Buddha 121,000,000. The number of Jews in the world is given as 10,860,000. 121,000,000. The number of Jews in the world is given as 10,860,000. 1
I THE RAILWAY CLEANING HOUSE. There are probably few people unacquainted with that excellent institution, the Bankers' Clearing House. The same cannot, however, be said of the Railway Clearing House, an organisation which occupies an equally important place in the life of to-day. Some idea of the work of this establish- ment may be gathered when it is stated that in its absence a traveller in the course of his journey from South Wales to Inverness would have to change carriages ten times, and on each occasion obtain a fresh ticket! The transporting of mer- chandise would also be made extremely laborious, while the cost would be almost prohibitory. It is only by means of the Clearing House that the through booking system is made at all feasible. The companies arrange to pay a fixed rate pe ile for such carriages and waggons, not their ow o- perty, that they may use, and a further sum per day by way of fine for detention. The Clearing House is divided into three great departments. The most important of these, says a writer in the Magazine of Covimerce, is the merchan- dise department, in which the staff comprises not less than nine hundred officerq and clerks. It is the function of the merchandise department to appor- tion the receipts, where more than one line of railway is used, from all traffic carried other than by passenger trains. Next comes the coaching department, employing a staff of about eight hundred. The coaching department is divided into two sections, the one dealing solely with pas- sengers, the other concerning itself with parcels, fish, horses, dogs, and every other class of traffic, gave human beings, carried by passenger train. In the course of a year the through journeys of upwards of eight million five hundred thousand passengers ire dealt with, the fares being appor- tioned among the companies concerned.

against witness. He said he hoped not, as he was a new beginner. He said he wanted to increase his trade and attract commercials to his house, and asked the Sergeant as well as Lewis to recommend people to his house. He also gave Sergeant Bullock half-a-crown to do his best for him—Maggie Evans, servant at the Farmers Arms corroborated defendant's statement as to defendant's conversation about improving his business, the promise to do as he asked, and the crift of the half-crown.—The Bench decided to convict defendant but reserved the penalty until hearing the charge of attempting to bribe P.S. Bullock.-The Bench said they found that the defendant had been guilty of trying to bribe the police, and he must pay a line of £ L and costs in each case, JE2 lis 6d in all, or 14 days'.
