I Loss of Twenty Sheep. I CLAIM AT THE COUNTY COURT. At the County Court on Monday, Eliza, Evans, Buari.hu Farm, sued Mary Thomas and Henry Juris Richards, Cefngorwydd Farm, Tyeroes. Mr. (J. Clarke Williams, Swansea (nst.ructed by Messrs. Roderick and. Richards), appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. T. G. Williams de- fended. Mr. Clarke Williams said the claim was for £21 in respect of the 'loss of twenty sheep. Some of them, were found lying dead in a field at Buarthu Farm, and a number were picked up in the Lougbur river. David Evans, son of the plaintiff, said he saw, two dogs one morning amongst, the. sheep. One was a sheep dog, and the other a re- triever. He had seen the retriever following a milk cart owned by Mrs. Thomas at Tyeroes. The dogs ran away as he approached. Several witnesses were called in order to prove the identity of the dogs. M.r. T. G. Williams, for the defence, saicl he did not think any remarks he made would have any effect on His Honour's mind His Honour: You are quite mistaken. Mr. Williams: Not at this stage, but later on J hope they will. Proceeding. Mr. Wil- Iiams said they all depJoTed the damage caused by the sheep killers that had been devastath'g the flocks in the neighbourhood of Ammanford. In this case he/would point out that, according to the evidence of the witnesses, they were in search of a dog of a certain description. The" police and others probably concluded that ilie defendant's bitch was the one because it was the only lame one they happened to find. It was a. common ground that there were a great number oi black retrievers in Ammanford. Mr. Clarke Williams said he did not admit it was common ground. Mr. T. G. Williams replied that he knew it from his own knowledge. Mrs. Mary Thorn is said she was the owner of the (log. It was lame some time before November. His Honour said the oyidencewas not strong enough to prove that the retriever dog was the culprit. There could be no douht that the collie dog was lame before the date in question. Judgment- would be given for the defendants.
