In the kitchen he saw the three defendants. Bowen had a glass of whiskey and the other two defendants had a glass of stout each. He asked the landlord what they were drinking, and he at once admitted they were intoxicating drinks. "Are you aware of the time?" asked the con- stable. The landlord replied: "It is late." Bowen then said that the drinks had been served at 8.55. Mr. W. Thomas said that the two men had called to see Bowen on busi- ness, and were not in the habit of visit- ing public-houses.

Roger replied it was hop bitters. What do you say it is, Davies?" asked the constable. "I don't know what it is." he replied, "but I ordered hop hitters." The constable obtained the glass back from the landlord. There was a drop of beer in the bottom, and witness smelt and tasted it, and was satisfied it was beer. The landlord fetched an empty hop bitters bottle, and said that that was the bottle supplied. Witness told him he could come down to Abei-dare Police Station if he liked. He excused him- self by stating that he had no one to look after the house. Mr. Thomas addressed the Bench and said that the landlord was over 70 years of age, and this was the first charge brought against h'.m- The Stipendiarv saul the offence was ag- .rn vaied bv the attempt to impose upon the officer and persisting in saying that the beer was hop bitters.

Annulling a Maintenance Order. Charles Allen sought to annul a main- tenance order made against him by which he had to pay 1;)8. a week towards his wife, Ann Allen, of Dare Street, Aberdare. Mr. W. Thomas, for the husband, said that the application was made on the ground that she had been guilty of adultery. The husband gave evidence, stating that he had been in the Army since Oct 1914, and was discharged from hospital on June 29, 1916, on which date he came home to his parents in Aberdare. It was in January, 1916, that he last visited home, and he then complained to his wife concerning a man named David Williams, with whom she was walking about. It was in • September, 1916, that, he next saw her, when the maintenance order was in- creased to 15s. per week. Between January and June 29th he did not see his wife at all. When he came to Aberdare on June 29th his father and mother had to carry him from the station to No. 10 Banks St., Aberdare. He did not leave the house during the following 7 days. On July 7th his wife came to blackguard him, and a con- stable had to turn her from the house. He never went to his wife's house at all. A few days later a Mrs. came on to him and complained about the conduct of his wife. His wife was close by and slapped him in the face. He had not cohabited with her since January, 1916. By the Stipend larv: He was not the father of the child. Mrs. Allen (to her husband) Why was there a bother about David Wil- liams in January, 1916?—I spoke to you about him and you went to fetch him. You said he had a heading in Aberaman and was earning good money. Mrs. Allen: Didn't you send to fetch me when I was in the Church Mission Coffee Supper?-—No. Mrs. Ann Davies, 12 Gaùlys Street, a certified midwife, said she was called on March 15th to attend to Mrs. Allen, who was delivered of a female child. It was a fully-developed child. Harriet Allen, 10 Banks Street, said she met her son when he came home from hospital, and he was confined to the house for several days, and after- wards was only able to get about with the aid of a stick. He had lived with her (witness) ever since. Mrs. Elizabeth Strickland, sister ot Chas. Allen, gave similar evidence. Miss B. Roberts deposed to seeing Mrs Allen in the company of David Wil- liams in October, 1916, at 10.30 p.m. They were talking in a. doorway. Wm. Thomas, 7 Cwm Place, a dis- charged soldier, said that when Mrs. Allen blackguarded her husband in the street on July 7th, she said You keep your own two children and he (Williams) will keep this one." Mrs. Allen, the defendant, went into the witness-box and said she met her husband in the Green Dragon at the end of June, 1916. He gave her boy a few coppers. Intimacy took place that evening and several times subsequently. Mrs. Allen had no witnesses and the Bench were satisfied that the husband was not and could not be the father of the child. Therefore the wife had been guilty of adultery during his ab- sence, and the maintenance order would be discharged.
Dogs. Wm. Jones, Cardiff St., Aberdare, ki t'ping unlicensed dog, 7s. 6d. P.S. Francombe proved. P.C. Edwards, Hirwain, preferred a similar charge against Thos. Edwards, who was fined 7s. 6d.; and Richard Buckley, Hirwain, who was fined 2s. 6d. for not having a name and address on his dog's collar.
Alleged Theft of Letter. Thos. Flavell, Mountain Ash, was brought up on a charge of stealing a registered letter containing a treasury note and an Army Separation paper, the property of Henrietta Kettle, on or about the 28th of March. Mrs. Kettle, who belongs to a. the- atrical company, said that her sister, who lived in England, was supposed to be present, but she had written to her stating she could not come. Flavell said he signed for the regis- tered letter and re-posted it on to Mrs. Kettle. The case was adjourned for a week to obtain the presence of Mrs. Kettle's sister.
Bad Language. Mrs. Margaret Lloyd, 5 Davis Row, Hirwain, an elderly woman, was sum- moned by Mrs. Blodwen Walters, a neighbour, for indecent language. Mr W. Thomas, who appeared for complain- ant, said she was the wife of a soldier, and the language used by defendant was really slanderous. Mr. Walters gave evidence and pro- duced a sample (handed to the Bench) of the language used by Mrs. Lloyd. Mrs. Lloyd had come to her house on Friday, March 13th, to use the lan- guage. Cissie Preece, 27 Wind Street, Hir- wain, and Elizabeth Walters (sister) gave evidence, and the Bench ordered Mrs. Lloyd to pay 20s. or go to prison for 11 days. Defendant: I'll take the 11 days.
