SPI% Forth Police Court, Thur,sdav.-Before Mr. T. P. Jenkins (chairman), Dr. Ivor Davies, Mr. Thos. Griffiths .and Dr. E. N. Davies. WARNING TO THE PUBLIC. David Powell, hay and corn merchant, Forth, was summoned under the Notices of Accidents Act, 1906, for failing to notify a fire on his premises to the Local Government Inspector. Captain T. O. Edwards, H.M. Inspector of Factories, London, prosecuted, and said that this was the first case under the Act. Numerous) cases of accidents had occurred in the district, but as most people were not aware of the Act, this action had been taken in order to bring before the public its provisions. On the 11th December, a fire occurred at defen- dant's hay and corn stores, and the pre- mises were completely burned down. Defendant gave no notification to the authorities, and when spoken to, said that he was not aware of the existence of the Act. Defendant, who said he was very sorry that in his ignorance he had not complied with the Act, was ordered to pay the costs. THE DEADLY PINT POT. Geo. Lewis, collier, Mardy, was charged with unlawfully and maliciously wound- ing Anderton Lewis, collier, at the Royal Hotel, Mardy. Complainant said that he was at the Royal Hotel about 10.30 p.m. on March 6th. Prisorifer was in the taproom talking to some other men about cigars. As pri- soner was leaving the room, he turned round and struck witness on the head with something he had in his hand. Wit- ness was stunned by the blow, and when he came to himself, he was being attended by a doctor. Witness had not spoken to prisoner during the evening. Wm. Blake, landlord of the Royal Hotel, said that he saw prisoner striking Jenkins with a pint pot, afterwards rush- ing out of the room. Witness sent a barman after him, and he was detained until the police arrived. Dr. Glanville Morris said that he found comnlainant bleeding from a wound It inches long and extending down to the bone. Witness dressed the wound, and when Lewis returned to consciousness, he was sent home. When subsequently charged by P.S. Phillips and P.O. Price, prisoner said that he did it in self-defence. Prisoner was committed to the Quarter Sessions, bail being allowed. TRESPASSING ON G.W.R. Dennis Gorman, Blaenclydach; Ernest Osborne, Wm. Rees, Owmclydach; Jas. Parsons and Wm.

A Serious Matter. The bane of life in every section of the community is that of being occasion- ally "hard up." Just at the moments when it is least expected a sudden call upon the purse is made, and whilst one could get in a week or two, or a month or so, the thing won't wait, and then A* heard the tragi-comic cry, I'm awfully hard up; stoney, in fact." It seems very strange, yet gentlemen occupying really good positions often find themselves in this plight, and they would not dare to approach their friends to beg the favour of a loan. What then, is one to do under these trying circumstances P The manager,, or the confidential assistant, or clerk must not allow his position to be known to the world. The plodding earnest trades- man must keep his credit up at all costs, whilst the professional man's dignity would suffer should it become known that he is short of money. All these matters have been very care- fully considered by a gentleman of means who has devised a scheme whereby any- one who occupies a, responsible position*, and who is financially embarrassed, may be immediately relieved by means of & private advance, quietly arranged. The terms upon which the loan can be made will vary according to cirounwtaiiees. There is no security required, nor bonds- men or sureties requested. You sign. a simple Promissory Note, and the cash is, handed over to you. If one has any standing at all in any walk of life, there is no difficulty whatever in completing the advance within a, few hours. Anyone desirous of any further particulars should write a note, in confidence, to Mr. Wm. Lloyd, 4, Chiurqjhi Street, Cardiff, who will at once reply, giving full inforinatioR free without any charge whatever. 47().
NATURE is a powerful mistress, but she is a merci- ful one. If you violate her laws, she will punish you; but have recourse to her again, and she will reinstate you. Some- times Nature is violated involuntarily. We cannot always lead the life which would please us; our occupations will not always allow it. Some men have to work in places where the life-giving air which Nature has given us is robbed of a large proportion of its most vital component- Oxygen. When this is so, the blood becomes impoverished, and disease germs, which are ever present in the air, step in and cause innumerable ills. Languor and Lassitude take the place of Health and Vitality, and life is robbed of its sweetest blessing—good vital health. Nature has been violated in the struggle for existence. How is it possible to regain that lost Vitality? You must return to Nature for the remedy. Herbs are man's Natural Remedy, and to them you must have recourse. They are inexpensive and reliable, and quite harmless, which is more than can be said of most of the advertised patent medicines of to-day. I will send a packet of herbs composed of Sarsaparilla. Tarabaci, Sasafras, Burdock and Liquorise, proportionately mixed and enough to make three pints of excellent blood medicine, post free with instructions for 1/6.

I Ton=Pentre Police Court. Monday.—Before Mr. T. P. Jenkins (chairman), Alderman EI. H. Davies, Alderman Wm. Morgan, Messrs. Edward Jonesl and W. T. Jones. DANGEROUS CHARACTER SENT TO PRISON. Hugh Thomas, a diminutive Tonypandy collier, was summoned for drunk and dis- orderly conduct and assaulting P.C. Higgler son. The officer said that he saw prisoner in Dunraven Street, Tonypandy, late on Saturday night. He was very drunk and behaved in a very disorderly manner. When witness spoke to him, prisoner struck him a violent blow and kicked him struck him a violent blow and kicked him in the stomach, rendering him uncon- scious for about ten minutes. When wit- ness came to himself, prisoner was being held down by four men. Later, when taken to the Police Station, prisoner behaved like a madman, kicking and hit- ting in all directions. Prisoner said he remembered nothing about the matter. Deputy Chief Constable Cole said that prisoner, who had a previous conviction against him for assaulting the police, was a most dangerous man when drunk. Prisoner was fined 15s., or seven days, for being drunk and disorderly, and six weeks' imprisonment with hard labour for the assault upon P.O. Higgerson. HIS LEGS GAVE! WAY. John Owen, an aged collier, of Ton- Pentre, was charged with drunkenness. P.C.'s James and Rowe said they saw defendant coming from the 9.19 p.m. train on Sunday evening, February 28th. He was very drunk, and could not find his ticket when demanded by the collector. Defendant (otx,citedly&: Gentlemen, I defy anyone to say I have been in the public for the last six months. It was my legs that gave way under me (laugh- ter). Mr. T. P. Jenkins: What about failing to find your ticket?—What- did I want a. ticket for? I had a return ticket (laughter). Mr. Jenkins: I'm afraid you're too clever for me. We'll dismiss you this time, not because we disbelieve the officers, but to give you another chance. DRUNK IN CHARGE OF HORSE. Wm. Hy. Plenty, Pentre, was sum- moned for being drunk in charge of a horse and cart. Evidence was given by Inspector Edwards and P.C. Dennitt to the effect that on the 1st inst., whilst efforts were being made to get a derailed car back to the metals at Pentre, defendant drove into the crowd and made use of threaten- ing language. He was drunk, and would not go away for some time. A fine of 15s. was imposed. BROTHER AND SISTER QUARREL. Joseph Thomas, haulier, Pentre, was brought up on remand charged with doing grievous bodily harm to his sister, Mary Edwards, at Llewellyn Street, Pentre. Dr. Fergusson said that he had seen Mrs. Edwards that morning, and he could not say she was out of danger, although there was no immediate danger. She went about the house because it was im- possible to keep her quiet, but she would not be in a position to attend the Court for a fortnight at least. Prisoner was remanded for a week in custody.

———A—W—Y Presentation Meeting at Trealaw. An interesting presentation took placff at All Saints' Church, Trealaw, on Tues- day, the 9th inst., when the Rev. A. E, Lewis was presented with pifts as a t-oken of the high esteem in which he is held by the parishioners and friends in the locality. Mr. Lewis, who has been curate- in-charge of All Saints' Church in the Llwynypia parish for over 3t years, has rendered most valuable services, and during his tenure of office has performed useful" work. It was through his zeal that the long-existing debt on the church building was wiped off last year, and a sale of work which not only put the church out of debt, but in addition resulted in a, sum of money being handed over to open a, fund for a proposed new church, which will probably cost E5,000, It is hoped that a sufficient sum will be col- lected to start the new building at an early date. The Rev. D. T. R. James, (vicar), who presided, stated that it was with mixed feelings they had met to bid Mr, and Mrs. Lewis farewell, and it was with mixed feelings that their connection had ceased, but not in friendship. He felt sure that during the time Mr. Lewis had been in All Saints' the work had gone on satisfactorily, .and he was thankful "that the church was clear of debt. Personally, he felt the loss through the departure of Mr. Leiiis, ao he had great difficulty in finding one to fill the vacancy. He appealed to the members to work shoulder to shoulder until his successor arrived. Mr. Lewis' success, no. doubt, was due in some respect to the assistance of Mrs. Lewis. Mr. Peter Morgan, the people's warden, considered that the church was in its fifth chapter, as Mr. Lewis was the fifth clergyman who had held office there, and he had been very faithful to his duties. He regretted the absence of Mr. W. Nicholas, Garth, who was in full sym- pathy with the movement: and also the Rev. W. Price. Mr. Ford and the Revs. E. W. Hughes and A. A. Kerridge also spoke, expressing the best wishes for Mr. Lewis' welfare. Miss Churchill, on behalf of the congre- gatioy, presented the tea and coffee ser- vice, and Mrs. G. Lewis the purse of gold. A silver mug, the gift of the Sunday School scholars, was handed to Mrs* Lewis by Miss Ford, being the first gift of the children for little Trevor, Master F. Dando presented a, pair of candesticks from the choir. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis responded. Mr. J. Lewis officiated at the organ, while the Misses Churchill and F. Morgan, Messrs. W. Williams and G. Llewellyn added to the musical part of t'he pro- gramme. A rendering by Mrs. Peter Morgan, with much feeling, terminated" a most enjoyable evening.
