NARBERTH. COUNTY COURT.—Before His Honour Judge Bishop, on Monday last, Mr. W. Adams, smith, Kilgetty, sued Mr. Stephen Lewis, Begelly, for j62 13a 2d, amount alleged to be due for smith's work done. Mr. W. R. James (of Messrs Lewis and James, Narberth), appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. G. Lort Stokes (of Messrs Stokes and Stokes), for the defendant. The defendant counterclaimed for JE2 14s 6d for services in draw- ing up a plan of alterations to be carried out at the smithy and other small matters. The plain- tiff showed books containing his accounts, and the items were uncontested except one of 2s Gd for mending a hay-tester. The plaintiff stated that he had asked the defendant, amongst others, to send in tenders to his landlords, Messrs Griffiths, of Pembroke, but he had never in- structed him to draw plans or prepare specifica- tions. Mr. Neville Griffiths, junior, a member of the firm Griffiths Bros., Pembroke, stated that he had received a tender from defendant, but had never been sent a bill for it, and this would have been quite unusual.

He had been asked to prepare estimates. On cross-examina- tions defendant admitted that he bad given up building, and that even if his tender had been accepted, he would not have been able to under- take the works.
