r Trealaw Accountants' Married Life. Summoned by his Wife for Cruelty. At the Pontypridd Police Court on Wed- nesday—before the Stipendiary (Mr. Igna- tius Williams), and Alderman W. H. Mathias—Charles Victor Clay, accountant, Trealaw, was summoned by his wife for persistent cruelty. Mr. Frank James, Merthyr, appeared for Mrs. Clay, and Mr. James Phillips, Pontypridd, for the de- fendant. In detailing the circumstances of the case, Mr. James said the parties- were married in October, 1890, and there were two children of the marriage. For some time they resided at Trealaw, Mr. Clay being employed by Messrs. Clarke and Dovey at a local co-operative stores. Since Christmas he had ceased doing this. During their married life he was not only cruel to her, but was insulting, and fre- quently struck 4cr. On the night after Boxing Day, Mr. Clay invited a, few friends to supper, and one of the guests named Thomas, asked for a. Tittie more cold tur- key. (Laughter.) Mrs. Clay went to fetch it, and, possibly, remaining longer than the visitor thought necessary, he went after her. Mr. Clay followed in a moment or two, and charged his wife with allowing the visitor to put his arm around her waist. She denied it. The servant girl was in the kitchen at the time. Mr. Cla,y got into a bad temper; threw a cork at his, wife, and then struck her so violently that she fell senseless to the grouncl. Mr. Williams, one of the neighbours, who was in the house at the time, got between the husband and wife, with the result that Mr. Clay, having lost his temper, hit Mr. Williams in the face. Mrs. Williams and some of the friends, in order to prevent a, fight, got, Mr. Williams out of the house. Later in the night Mr. Clay got his wife to sit, on the stairs, and struck her twice in the face. For two or three days after matters were somewhat quiet, but, he soon resumed his acts of cruelty, hitting his wife and abusing her in every conceivable way. About the end of February, Mrs. Clay, who was ill, had gone to bed, taking the two children with her. The husband re- turned home very late that night, and the servant and Mrs. Price, a sister of Mrs. Clay, were waiting for him downstairs. Directly Mr. Clay came home Mrs. Price went UDstairs and took the boy from the bed. Mr. Clay followed, and although his wife was in a sleeping condition, he "naggled" her, and swore at her. --He put his knees on the bed, clutched her by the throat, and he (Mr. James) believed that had it not been for the intervention of Mrs. Price and the servaiik, he would have strangled her. The Stipendiary: Does he allege any cause for this? Mr. James None whatever. It arose without any provocation, as though the man was a perfect maniac. Clay then fled at, his wife's sister, because she had in- terfered, and so frightened was the servant girl that she rushed out of the house. It was then about -2.30 in the morning, and the servant thought that her mistress was in a dying condition, as she was black in the face, and frothy at the mouth. On another occasion, at, the end of March, Mr. Clay threatened to throw his wife downstairs, and she left next morning with the two children for her father's (Mr. Leonard), who lived at Merthyr." No sooner was she there than a telegram was received from her husband to the effect that unless the children returned that night a writ would be issued next morning. Several letters followed, and in one of them he said, I am happy to state that no such opportunity will be again presented to you," meaning that on a, prior occasion the wife had to seek protection at her father's house, and that things would be made up. He also said in the same letter, Your empty boxes will be sent by a later train." On March 30th Mr. Clay wrote to her, "I do think I ought to write you to ask you to forgive me. I have been most unkind to you, I know, and more particularly of late. It is positively painful when I re- flect on what I have done, and much has been done when I have not, been responsible myself.' He also promised to turn over a new leaf, and to abstain probably from in- toxicating liquors. On April 8th he wrote I am sorry to see you still withhold the forgiveness I ask. It will be very dif- ferent in future, and I will make amends." After further remarks1, Mr. James called Mrs. Clay. who detailed at length evidence corroborating Mr. James's opening re- marks. On one occasion, when the ser- vant girl had left, he said, You have no protection in the house to-night, and, by God, I'll strangle you." She became terrified, and left him. Cross-examined, Mrs. Clay said her hus- band complained of her drinking habits. His complaint was without, cause. It was not, true that he found a, pint and a half bottle of brandy in her box. When he accused her of allowing Thomas to put, his arm around her waist she admitted having struck him (her husbandi) in the eye. She admitted that her sister and husband had stopped with them for six weeks, but Mr. Clay never complained. Mr. Phillips Were you one night in the dining-room in your dressing-gown?—Yes. And there was no one in the room but Fred, your brother-in-law?—No. Did Mr. Clay come into the room?— Yes. Were you then under the influence, of drink ?-No. And when your husband entered you jumped up and said, Good God ?-No. Was your brother-in-law turned out that night ?—N o. The: Stipendiary Who is Fred ? Mr. Phillips Defendant's brother- Mrs. Clay explained that, when her hus- band entered the: dining-room his brother was in the chair, and she was sitting on the arm of the chair looking at some people going to Whitehall. Mr. James: There is no foundation for the suggestion that, there was any fami liarity between you and Fred ?—None what- ever. She added that, her husband was jealous, and struck her there and then, and gave a, blackeye to his brother. She wore her dressing-gown because she was very tired. She had some brandy in her box because she was very ill. Hannah Williams, who was in service with Mr. and Mrs. Clay, said that, when the husband went, up to the bedroom he described her as the sleeping beauty, and subsequently appeared to be endeavouring to strangle her. Defendant, on being sworn, admitted that he had struck his wife on the night of his supper party, but alleged that he had seen Thomas, with his, arms around her waist. He had also seen his brother sitting on her lap when she was in her dressing-gown. After a lengthy hearing, the Bench made an order of 17s. per week, the wife to have the custody of the children.

Treherbert. At, the Morriston eisteddfod, the chair and prize for the best poem in memory of the late Rev. R. Roberts ("Meinydd"), was won by the Rev. H. Harris, Afanwy." The rev. gentleman's success is another in- dication of his mental alertness. He has been before the public for nearly half a century, and it is very gratifying to find him adding to his laurels at an age when most men rest on their oars and seek blest retirement. Libanus people are to be congratulated on possessing a pastor of such ceaseless mental activity. Cyclists will be interested to know that the celebrated firm of Humber have just issued a most useful book on Cycles and how to use them." It contains valuable advice on the selection and care of the machine, and the in- structions are clearly illustrated, so that the merest tyro cannot fail to understand them. No intending purchaser, or rider of a cycle, should be without this valuable little work, which may be obtained, post free, from Humber, Limited, 32, Holt-orri Viaduct, London, E.C., or their local agent-R.

Cwmparc. Bethel Church has unanimously given a call" to Mr. James Davies, Bangor College, to become their minister. He has definitely accepted, and will commence his duties in July. Mr. Davies is a native of Llanfyrnach, and is a very promising preacher, having spent barely two years at the college. Principal Silas Morris, Bangor, has formed a very high opinion of Mr. Davies' abilities, and we compliment Bethel church on their success.

Tonypandy. The Tonypandy United Choir have de- cided, after their good display at Mountain Ash, to compete for the chief prize at the Merthyr National Eisteddfod. Preaching services were held at Moriah Welsh Baptist Chapel on Sunday and Mon- day last., when the Revs. W. E. Davies, Clydach Vale B.James, Pwllheli; and S. Glallnedd Bowen, Cemaes. Pembroke- shire,, officiated. The: series were, the best ever held at the above place, the preach- ing being of a high order, and the audiences crowded.
Trealaw. The deplorable condition of some of the public thoroughfares: of Trealaw is a matter that might well engage the attention of the District Council. The condition of Rhys Street is deplorable, so also is the narrow, but important, by-way which leads from Upper to Lower Miskin Road. The Dis- trict Council have more than served their apprenticeship, and are long past the ex- perimental stage. Is it not time then that they deal in a bold and compre- hensive manner with all such neglected streets ? Doubtless it is, a misfortune for the inhabitants of Rhys Street that none of our local magnates find it necessary to use that thoroughfare in order to get to their residences, otherwise we should have seen the present state of things long since changed.

Ferndale. Two of the daughters of Mrs. Harding, who is at present staying at Gwawrfryn, Ferndale, were married on Monday last, the 8th inst. The marriage of Alys, the second daughter, was solemnised at the Church of St. Mary, Middle Barton, Ox- fordshire, by the Rev. Spencer Harrison, to Jack F. Taden, of the Grove, Middle Barton.

Tonyrefaii. The Tonyrefail branch of the Y.M.C.A. have decided to hold a week's Gospel mis- sion, to commence on Tuesday, April 23rd. The missionary for the week will be Pastor L. Ton Evans, Barry. The mission is pre- ceded with a week's prayer meeting. This association is in a Healthy condition, and its members derive much benefit from it, but we should be much more pleased to see the young men of the village taking ad- vantage of it, and becoming members of the society. On Monday evening, Mr. Morgan Thomas, Liberal agent for South Glamor- ganshire, addressed a meeting of Liberals in the Board Schools, Tonyrefail Mr. Robert Evans presided. The speaker dwelt upon the necessity and importance of being well organised, to be able to meet any emergency that may occur. At the close of the meeting a Liberal Association was formed, with Mr. J. Dicks (check- weigher), as president, and Mr. Stephen Evans, Bon Marche, as secretary. The Tonyrefail Glee Party, under the able cond uctorship of Mr. John Harries Richards, were successful both at Llantri- sant on Good Friday and Mountain Ash on Easter Monday, and they are now prepar- ing for the Llanharran eisteddfod of Whit Monday.

Ogmore Valley Notes. Dinam Chapel, Nantymoel, was crowded with an enthusiastic audience of music lovers on Sunday last. The English Nonconformist Churches of the valley were rendering a full dress" rehearsal pre- vious to their singing festival. The third annual singing festival was held at Hermon Welsh Methodist Chapel, Ty- newydd, on Monday. The choirs were under the baton of the energetic festival conductor, Mr. T.Davies.

The first half-yearly meeting of the Horeb Y.P.S.C.E., was held on Monday evening. Mr. F. Guiel occupied the chair, and with his usual tact conducted a very successful meeting. The following officers were elected for the ensuing half year — President, Mr. John Evans; vice-presi- dent, Miss M. Vaughan; treasurer, Mr. William Lewis; secretary. Mr. Gwilym Lewis. Through the energy of the mem- bers (particularly the officers), this society shows a, capital increase in members and funds. The future of the society should be a bright and useful one. On Wednesday evening at the Work- men's Hall, Tynewydd, there was a lively time. Such a condition of things was only to be expected. Was not it the first meeting of the Ogmore Quadrille Class? A grand ball was the fitting terminus of such an institution. The famous Hyfohins' string band, from Neath, was in attend- ance. A fuller account will appear in next week's issue. The choir of Hope Congregational Chapel, Pricetown, on Wednesdav last, journeyed to Bridgend, where their annual singing festival took place. The cycling season is now in full season at Ogmore. The streets are nothing but one continual string of cycles. Ogmore is on wheels. The steam roller set the fashion.
