I said I oarne from Criecieth. He asked me if I knew Portmadoc at all, and whether I knew him. Well, it was too dark to see who he was, but it turned out to be Mr Geo. McLean, from Portmadoc. The Huns we were up against this time were a livelier lot than I have seen yet. I have noticed here that we are the masters of the Huns with artillery. It is not often they shell our lines, but when they do our artillery rain shells on them—anything from ten to twenty for every one or theirs. In the midst of it all we manage to get lots of fun, and we are ali looking forward to 'the day' 'Keep the home fires burning.' URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL.

David llughee, Tyntwll Earm, near Carnarvon, was charged witli milk containing 21.3 grains per gallon of sediment. Sir J. T. Roberts, Cterk to the Carnarvonshire County Council, prosecuted. Questioned by Air Richard Roberts, who de- fended, Inspector Vaughau Davies denied that the defendant told him, when the sample w. s taken, that he had finielieti his rounds. lksaid he hati nearly finished, and was sorry the in- spector had not seen him sooner. The defend- ant did not say "I will not sell you any milk for ec.Ji!flC<IIt," nor did witness then say, "I want to see if there is water in it." lie did say thcit he took that morning were chiefly for water. lie did not tell the defend allt that it was by a inajoriij5 of one that the Weights and Mea«.utes Committee decided, to prosecute. By the Bench lie received several complaints about water ill milk sold ill the town, and that was why he took samples. Dr. I;art-y Edwards said milk containing suc-ii a quantity of sediment was dangerous to children and feeble people* He would not 6ay that I there were 21.3 grains of secfliment in every gal- lon of milk the defendant sold that day. The defendant gave evidence that- lie toid the I:i'.pee-tor that he had imit-hed his rounds, ilie a for a pint, but the milk would not come through the tap as there was so little of it. By means of a ladle he managed to get three- quarters of a pint for the Inspector. Had not the Inspector asked for the milk defendant would have returned home with it. The Inspector in- timaied that he w an in search of water in milk. Some weeks later the Inspector toid him that lie would not have taken any notice of the mils but a member of his committee pressed for a prosecution. lie took every care with the milk, and use,! tt strainer, muslin and cotton, to keep it clean. Mr Richard Roberts stated that last year the Carnarvon and District Milk Sellers' Association decided to test the question of Kcdiment, in milk, and were successful at the Quarter S<i0J18. Sir J. T. Roberts contended that that decision iiad 110 le-gal effect, and besides, the sediment ill those oases did not- exceed 3.5 -grains per gallon. Mr Richard Huberts There were 6 or 7 grains per gallon. Proceeding, Mr Roberts contended that the Eoods and Drugs Act did not apply to sediment in milk. There vsas grit inherent in milk. Ho contended that it. was not tail" of the Juspector to buy milk from the defendant when he was returning home, an d it was lIure-R.on a hI,} to ex- pect that the milk at the bottom was the eame a-s that on top. The Chairman said theee was a considerable element of doubt in the case, and i-iie of it would be given to the defendant. The Bench also thought that it was not a fair sample, but they attached no blame to the Inspector as the case was a proper one for inquiry. The ease would be dismissed. A LICENCEE FINED. I Matthew Evans, lieencee of the I'areit Slip Vaults, Carnarvon, was charged with allowing gaming on his premises. Mr Richard Roberts prosecuted. Mr A Hanson defended, and Mr Or ebb in (Messrs Carter, Vincent and Co.), watohid the case 011 behalf of the ow-ners of the Vaults. i'.C. T. R Jon-M (79) stated that-at 10.10 p.m. on the J}lj' in question he heard eeriam sounds in one of the room-s of the Tacent Siip. He went for Sergt. Thomas, and through an aperture between the blind and the wood-work at the side of the window they could see tha.t cards were being played by soldiers. Witness saw money on the ta-bie. They watched through the window for about twenty minutes, ivjid then Sergt. Thomas entered the Vaults an<i toid the defendant he was allowing men to gamble. The defendant denied this, but afterwards said it wn.s only a friendiy game. Sergt. Thomas pointed out that they had seen money on the tab't>, but this the defendant de- nied. When told he would be reported for al- lowing gaming the defendant simply replied. "Sure." The soldiers were charged with aiding and abetting, and they made no reply, Questioned by Mr Allanson witness he did net know that- before they enlisted, the soldiers found in tire hOl.e were "public servants. SergI. Thoma" "aid that through the. side of the biind he could see into the corner of the room. He noticed that the three iiiell ill t-lic room had cards in front of them, and he also f<a,W 1II0n.cy on tie t-abie. The defendant ex- plained tilat it was only a friendiy game, and he denied that money had been pas-sing. Asked whv he had the soldiers at the- house that time of night the defendant said they were his friends. Cross examined, witness said lie was sure that money was placed on the table, lie had no feeling against the house, and %as not sent to watch it that night. Mr Allanson said he was not. present to defend the action of the defendant in having so-kliens at but lie offered: air absolute denial to the charge. The noise of money which the officer heard occurred when the days tak- ings were being counted, and he hastily ussumed that gambling was laking pl ace. The whole gist of the case was as to whether the men were piayilllC fot. money it was no offence unless money pjssed. The soidiers, men of unblemished character, were invited by Mr Harris, Pool street, to go to the Patent Slip. The detendani stated Oil oath that lie invited Mr Harris to his house, and he brought with him so;n £ toldiers. Defendant suggested a frier.dlv game of whist, but nu money was Tole *led for. it. was impossible to see iu-ide the room from outside wlwm the blind wits down. De- fendant had never allowed gambling in his house. He knew he should not have allowed the soldiers in the house at that hour. Cross-examined, lie could not understand why P.C.
