The latter stated that defendant struck her and pulled her hair.- Joseph Galbridge corroborated, but a woman named Pardon said complainant called defendant bad names, and defendant only acted in self- defence.-Fined 5s. MILK ADULTERATION. Rees Lewis, Cross Farm, Dinas Powis, was summoned for selling adulterated milk. Mr A. Jackson, solicitor, defended. Police-inspector Morris said on the 1st of June he purchased a pint of new milk from Edwin Williams, a servant of the defendant. On analysis the sample was found to be 13 percent. deficient of butter fat.—Defendant said he had been in the milk business for 20 years, and had never been fined before. He attributed the defect to the cold weather.-The Bench did not consider the explanation given was satisfactory, and fined defendant 20s and costs. Catherine Milligan was charged with selling milk which was eight per cent. deficient of butter fat. Mr A Jackson, solicitor, prosecuted, and Mr Hugh Jones, solicitor, Cardiff, defended.-Fined 5s and costs. BOOKMAKING CASES. Frederick J. Thrush appeared to a summons for street betting. P.C. Poolman (72) said on the 8th ultimo he saw defendant about noon in a back street off Sydenham street, Barry Docks. He saw a number of men go up to the defendant, three or four at a time, and hand defendant slips of paper. He put something in his pocket on receiving each slip of paper, and made notes in a pocket book. Some of the men referred to newspapers. About an hour afterwards he went to the defendant when there were two or three men with him. He was writing in a book. He (witness) could see some papers in his waistcoat pocket, and when he told defendant that he was going to report him for street-betting, he said, "Who are you?" The constable then asked him if he would like to go to the station, and he replied that he could take his name and address where he was.- In reply to Mr A. Jackson, solicitor, Barry, who appeared for the defence, the officer said there was some music in the street, which caused a crowd to assemble. He saw between 25 and 30 men go up to the defendant.-P.C. Beadles (375) gave corroborative evidence.—Mr Jackson con- tended that the evidence given was not sufficient to convict of betting. Something further must be proved. Not even a slip of paper with any signs of betting had been found.—The Bench said that as it was the first case of the kind at Barry, they would fine the defendant only 20s and costs. George Giggs, who was also defended by Mr A. Jackson, solicitor, was charged with a similar offence Un the main thoroughfare in Dock View- road.-Fined 20s and costs. BARRY DOCK JEWELLERY ROBBERY.

Mr A. Jack- son, solicitor, Barry, appeared for theprosecution. Mr Alexander Follick, manager of prosecutor's shop, said he locked up the shop on Friday evening, the 13th ultimo, and he arrived at Barry Dock at 10.45 the next morning, when he found that. the, shop had been entered by forcing an iron bar and opening the window at the back of the shop. The locks off three doors had also been wrenched away, and the right-hand panel of each door cut out. The shop was in great disorder, and a large quantity of gold watches, gold and diamond rings, and miscellaneous jewellery had been removed. He identified a gold watch, gold brooch, and pair of ear rings produced as his father's property. A gold buckle diamond ring was amongst the articles taken from the shop. About P,3 10s in coppers was also taken.-Daniel S. Purchase, of the Workmen's Hotel, Travis-street, Barry Docks, said the two men lived at his house until the 13th of June.
