CONGREGATIONAL SUNDAY SCHOOL TBA PARTY. -The beautiful weather of the past few days has been a pleasant relief after the cold and stormy winds of th. previous weak, and already the annua.1 Sunday school treata have began to fall into t-ieir allotted place among the many and varied periodica) .events of the neighbourhood. On Friday morning last the scholars of the above Sunday Schoos assembled at the schoolroom, New Ch arch-street, where a procession was formed, headed by a contin- eant of the Newtown Silver Band, set off at intervals by banners, flags, etc., and the long line of smartly dressed children, numbering about 250, appeared at their best. Arriving at the Canal side, where two boats had been prepared to convey tile party down to Giansevem Park, the work of embark- ment at once commeDced and after some little delay a start was mide. The ride in the boat took some considerable time. it being nearly four o'clock when they reached their destination, although th, Jott Newtown as early as 12-15, but to lovers of nature the journey was not at all tedious, as the varied scenes en route afforded plenty of room for contemplation, and the beautiful scented odour from wild flowers and hay was much appreciated. It may be stated that at Abermule refreshments wero supplied to the children. Immediately on reaching the landing staga at the Revel the procession w-is again formed and wend-id its way to Glansevern Park, Which had been kindly lent for the occasion by Mr A. C. Humphreys-Owen. Under the broad limbs of a group of treeJ the tables had been laid, and a substantial tea provided for the now hungry excur- sionists. Dining in the open air is at all times a pleasure, and on this occasion the pleasure was cos- aiderably enhanced as it being so hot the holding of the tea in a tent would have been almost insufferable. The tables were presided over by the following ladies, who had'plen'y of work to eater for the 400 who took tea: Mrs Griffiths, Miss Baker, Mrs Henry Roberts, Jlra Edward Watkin, Miss E. and N. Jones, Mrs Trow, Miss P. Watkin, Mrs Dd. Jones, Miss Lizzie Jones, Miss Davies, Mrs John Edwards, Mrs Hayes, and Miss Lillie Davies. After tea the scholars ranged themselves around the park and indulged in games, cricket and football being the chief features. Swings bad been arranged under the trees for the junior echola; an i the glad sound of the ohildren's voices mingled with the hum of the busy insects as they dived iito t.he honeyed recesses of the nodding blue- IMU, or hung on the trembling petal of the blushing foae. The garlens and grounds were thrown open, and large numbers paid visit-A to the sides of the placid lakes, the bosoms of which were covered with filiea. The cave at the rear of the gardens was as gagerly sought for as that of Endymion's by the enraptured Diana, and the gold fish in the sparkling fountain became a source of amusement to the younger fraternity. The band played for dancing And a very pleasant evening was spent. The arrange- ments were carried out by Messrs Henry Roberts, Edward Watk n, aud T. Rees, the latter also supplied the coufeotio lery. The tables and benches were i kindly lent by the frieu Is at tie Revel. At tin c;op. of the day the IHna., votes of th tnka were passed, and the party proceevied homeward, arriving at Newtjwn at a late hour. ABERHAFESP. The news of the birth f a sou and heir to E. B.

The reverend gentleman, who waa retiring from the pastorate of thltt church after having held it with credit and succeis for '6 years, has removed to Llandrindod wellp, and h;s retirement gave the occasion for this laeeting.

(Presby- terian), also Messrs John Price, Gorge Thomas, and Charles Benbow (deacons). The following is a Copy of the a ldret;s:- TO THE REVEREND JOHN SILIN JONES. Reverend and Dear Sir,—We, whose names are given be. low, on behalf of the united Congregational Churches of Llanidloes, Glynbrochan, and Glanhafren, feel great pleasure in present you with this illnminated address, at the close of your relations to us as minister of the Gospel for the last Sixteen years. First of all, we are glad to testify that during all these years your moral character has been deserving of the highest praise. Yon have not only preached to ns the Gospel, but also lived it before onr eyes. And we are also pleased to record the fact that, during this rather long period of time, and no doubt owing greatly to your discretion and gentleness of disposition, compara- tive harmony and peace hare continuously prevailed in the Churches, as also should always be the case in the Church of Christ. And we greatly rejoice that is now going away from us, 011 account of long continued depression of trade in the town and its neighbourhood, you are leaving behind you palpable and lasting memorials of the very necessary work which the Churches through your help and guidance have been able to accomplish. Most conspicuous is our present Ane and commodious chapel in the town, which was erected in the year 1873, at a cost of about 91.850, opened in 1879, and fully cleared of all debt in 18S9. Last year also (1891) Glynbrochan Chapel was suitably and neatly renovated; and by your help and leadership the whole cost has been entirely 4efrayed. We are also glad to refer to the willing and efficient service which you have rendered in all temperance movements in the town, as well iu in all other attempts for the social elevation ,of the peop',e. And certainly we must not forget to mention the promi- nent part whieii all the time you have taken in the meetings (ind proceedings of thn denomination in the county, and especially the services, which for years yen have rendered to the London iIin<=ionary Society, in visiting annually the several Churches in tfce county, to stir them up to sustain it, by preaching and speaking to them in its behalf. And now thanking God for whatever services you have been able to render to Him yourself in advancing His glorious cause, and likewise in aiding and guiding His people to work for Him in various ways, we ask you to accept this address and purse of gold as a token of oar love and esteem, and in appreciation of yonr varied and valuable work. And, finally, we desire and pray that the gracious blessing of God may always rest both upon yon and your family, and also upon yonr further efforts for God and man, wherever, by the arrangements of Divine Providence you may be stationed. We are, Reverend and Dear Sir, Yonrs very fraternally in Christ, Pryci Davies, Richard Owen. Charles Benbow, Benjamin Jo..es.

Ii may be stated that during Mr Rowson's pastorate the con- gregations have largely illcra.sed, while the Sunday school has reaped ths benefit, not only of having the presence and teaching At the Pa-tor, but the advantage of his training in the singing. Mention shouid also be made of the fact that through his energy (backed up by ths efforts of the members, and the kind support of some outside frinnds) very great improvements have been effected in the chapel premises, new windows having been supplied, And extensive alte-at'ons carried out, which have resulted in t is p ae, of worship b,- if not elaborate in appearance, at le .t comfortable and cheery.

ACCIDENT.—On Saturday evening last a very painful accident happened in New-street, Llanidloes. Whilst Mr William Evans, of the High-street Bake- house, was going on the back of his donkey towards his farm on Bryndu at about eight o'clock in the evening, when near the smith shop, a carriage was seen coming down driven at a rapid rate, the driver being Mr Lewis Evans, Llangurig, and before either of the parties could get out of the way of the other, the carriage came in contact with Mr Wm. Evans, striking him to the giound with great force, and the donkey was also struck down. Mr Evans was immediately removed to the Smith House, and attended to by Dr Yanghan Owen, who found that two ribs were broken, and that he was generally shaken. Mr Evans was later in the evening carried on a couch to nis home, and re- mained on the oouch until Sunday, when he was sufficiently recovered to be removed to his bed. The force of the blow may be imagined when it is said that the donkey was carried to an adjoining yard and pronounced to be dead, but after a considerable time the animal came round again. Upon enquiry yesterday (Sunday) we learn that Mr Evans had a very painful night, but was considered to be better.

ABE EJHAFESP. RENT A UDIT.-The half-yearly rent audit of E. B.

After diune- the usual loyal and patriotic toasts were proposed and responded to with enthusiasm.—Mr Bowen pro- posed the toast of the Bishop, Clergy, and Ministers of all other denominations.—Mr S. Morgan proposed the Army, Navy, and Reserve Forces.—Mr E. PoweL proposeu the health of the Landlord. He remarked t; at he was pleased to see the good feeling that yx:sted between landlord and tenant, and what an a ivantage it was for the landlord to reside amongst them, so that he could assist them and attend to their grievances more so than if he was a stranger amongs- ti em (applause).—Tne to >st was drunk wiib musical honours.—Song, Roast beef of Old Eng- land," by Mr G. M Evans.-I-i responding, Mr Pcoctor said that h9 was very plea-ed to be ther a no gst thfui, thanked them for the enthusiastic way in -vh!(,-h his health had been drunk.

He was very much pleased to see the frlfndhip that existed not only between the tenants and himself, but with tbf community at large.—Duet, "Two Mariners," Messrs T. Jervis and G. M. Evans.—Mr David Lewis they, rose to propose the heiltli of Mr Powell, the agent He said that there were other gentlemen in the room whom he thought would be more capable to propose the toast. Bllt as he was one of the oldest tenants on the estate, he felt it his duty to say a few wo"d to the best of his ability, It was his 33rd rent audit on the Aberhafesp Hall estate, and in the course of that time he had seen different agents, but he felt sure that Mr Powell was one of the best. During these years he had seen good and bad time, when corn sold badly stock sold well, and one thing counter-baiauced the other, but this year was certainly the worst he ever remembered,as everything was iow.

SIR PRYCE PRYCE-JONES, M.P., MOBBED AT LLANIDLOES. On Monday last, the 18th inst., Sir Pryce Pryce Jones, M.P., accompanied by Lady Pryce-Jones, paid a visit to Llanidloes, arriving by the 5.10 p.m. train. Sir Pryce proceeded on foot to the Trewytben Hotel, but on the way he was noticed by a group of children, who immediately gave expression to their political training by hooting the borough member, and break- ing forth in cheers for Mr Tracy. This seemed as a signal to other juveniles who flocked in the direction of the hotel, in front of which a small crowd of children commenced to gather, which as time wore on grew to large proportions. Shortly after six o'clock the crowd was re-inforced by the arrival of large numbers from the mills. As it was known that Sir Pryce and Lady Pryce-Jones intended to leave by the mail at 7.30, the crowd, which was a good-humoured one, remained by the hotel, and whiled away the time by alternately hooting and cheering Sir Pryce and Mr Hanbury-Tracy. As the time drew near for the train to arrive the hotel omnibus was brought to the entrance. Immediately the 'bus made its appearance rush was made to the station to await its arrival, so that there were comparatively few by the hotel when the borough member add his wife entered the 'bus. L'he platfoim of the station and the approaches lead- ing thereto were well filled in a few minutes. A moment or two prior to the arrival of the 'bus a few of Sir Pryce's more ardent supportars gathered at the station entrance, one of whom in his ardour picked up several stones from the roadway and defied the crowd to attack Sir Pryce. The crowd, which, up to tdis time, contented itself by marely hooting and cheering became much excited, and Sir Pryce, his wife, and his several supporters had to scamper as best they could through the station on to the plat- form and thence into the Refreshment Rooms, being hustled and roughly used by the crowd. There they remained until the arrival of the train, the crowd meanwhile thronging the vicinity of their retreat,and givi ig vent to their feelings by vigorously hooting, hissing, and groaning. On the arrival of the train, a passage was made by Inspector Lake—who exerted, himself to his utmost on behalf of Sir Pryce,-a.ssisted oy the railway official*. Tne train being in readiness to go out, Sir Pryce emerged from the Refreshment iioom with a stout walking st>ck. As soon as he appeared, the din and clamour became greater than ev, r, and Sir Pryce, who evidently had become greatly alarmed for his safefy, commenced hitting all round .vith his stick in a most reckless manner. The crowd retaliated,aud Sir Pryce was very roughiy handled and severely hit. In the melee which eusned a young girl received a heavy blow from Sir Pryce's stick, which tnttdf3 a nasty gash close 'o her eye, from which blood flowed protuseiy. Fortun^teiv, a medical man was in close proximity, and she was immediately attended to. Lady Pryce-Joaes's dress was trodden upon and con- siderably torn, and she was much bustled. Having got into the train, Sir Pryce appealed at the carriage window, aud swung his stick oefiantly at the crowd, althougn requested by his friends to keep quit, and not furtner exasperate the crowd. This he, however, continued to do until the train had gone a consider- able distance from the station, amidst long continued nootiug frolD those on the platform. In this manner Sir Pryce to. k his departure, but he had left behind his hat, which waa eagerly seized by the youths on the platform, and hoisted upon a pole high enough to enable all to see it, and in this fashion carried down street amidst the cheers of the multitude of boys and girls who followed it. It was afterwards set on fire. Sir Pryce's conduct in visiting Llanidloes so soon after the election haa been adversely commented upon, especially as he is said to have done so against the advice of his more prominent supporters. But that is no txcn-e tor the outrage which took place, aud which we are glad to know, is greatly regretted by the Liberals of Llanidloes. It is impossible to condemn too strongly actions whicn only tend in the end to recoil upon the heads of the offenderd, and the party to which they belong.
CRICKET. MONTGOMERY V. WELSHPOOL. Montgomery Cricket Club on Saturday, at Lymore, sustained their second defeat this season, their victors now being Welshpool. The home team were minus the services of the Captain, C. S. Pryce, P. Eaton, T. S. Davies and C. P. Davies, for whom substitutes were supplied from the second string. Welshpool were also without Pugh and the Captain. Montgomery batted first and ran up 76, to which A. Eaton contributed a dashing innings of 21, losing his wicket through the bat slipping out of his hand. The other batsmen scored uniformly, but none reached double figures. Baines took 4 wickets for 32. and Hart 4 for 29. The first three Welshpool wickets fell for small scores, but the stand made by Baines and Lewis turned the tide in favour of their team, and although both batsmen gave chances a separation was not effected until the match had been virtually won. Hart 13 not out, and Baines 52, put on the finishing touch, and the players mentioned, with Mickleburgh (a Montgomery substitute), 8, were the only batsmen who did much. The innings closed for 97, 21 in advance of the Montgomery score. Scores:— MONTGOMERY. R. T. Harris, b J. Hart .6 A. Eaton, b do 21 A. Withers, b Baines 5 J. E. Tomley, at Lewis, b Hart ti n. B.

LLANMERI WiG. RE-OPENING OF THE PARISH CHURCH, The Lord Bishop of St. Asapb re-opened this church for Divine service on Sunday, July 17th, after its, having been closed for eight months. His Lordship preached at the eleven o'clock service from the test, John xiv., 6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life," impressively showing how daily life and datjr should mark Christian faith. The other service* of the day were celebration of the holy commncion 8-30 a.m., at which the rector (Rev R. E. Gibbiugs, D.D.) was the celebrant; an afternoon service, at which the rector was the preacher, and one in the evening at 6.30, when Rev T. M. Dorsett Owen, vicar of Holy Trinity, Burnley, preached from ..he text, Habakkuk n., 11. Crowded congregations at each service attested the interest felt by the neigh- bourhood in the event. This good work now happily accomplished bad been in contemplation during the incumbency of the iate Rev E. M. Montford, and plan were prepared by Mr Aston Webb, one of the most successful architects of the day. These plans havinff been in abeyance by reason of the death of the BeT. E. M. Montford were presentee, to the church by hie representatives, the Misses Jones, of Bank House, New town. After the appointment of the present Rector, a meeting of parishioners was held, and it was decided to make progress with the work. They wore met by the difficulty d obtaining funds, and wIth a generosity which was much valued by tho parish, C. Whitley Owen, Esq., tf Fronfraith, promised to- provide the money required. As Mr Aston Webb wag- unable to carry out the original design through press of work, it was entrusted to Mr W. H.

TORY RUFFIANISM." To the Editor of the Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor T imes. Sir,—Having read a parag aph this day in a eoflk temporary of yours, header' Tory ruffianism at YVfeishpool and Newtown," A wish to trouble you with a few words in rogard to the slur east upon Welshpool during tit-a day of poll. One of Mr Tracy's chief supporters, acted in a most suspicious inai ner with voters, by interfering, and taking hold of their arms against their wishes, and, after being remon- strated with as to his conduct, going into the hall. T'ce Conservatives, seeing this continuing, spoke to Mr Tracy complaining of the action of hie supporters. Du,ng this scene the Conservatives behaved calm and dignified, though much enraged At this disgraceful conduct. It was owing to Sir Pryce that no unpleasaut dis- turbance took place, who, on hearing ot tbiÆf, addressed the crowd, and implored his friends not create any disturbance; to shew Mr Tracy that Welshpool he could even enter on the day of pollr and receive thit respect which he (Sir Pryce) WK" not accustomed to receive in some of the olhfil borough towns. Mr Tracy, in the hearing of numbers present, "thanked Sir Pryce for his courtesy and kindness, and expressed openly that what Sir Pryco had saia was only what he expected from him, and begged of Sir Pryce to let the matter drop and say no more about it." Mr Tracy after this spent some time amonget hif friends, and passed to and fro amongst the crowd* and during the afternoon he called at his hotel, and proceeded to the station without any interference ot any shape or foim, and not under police protection' as stated by persons who were never near this town- that day. Anticipating your kindness by inserting this in. Q your next issue, youis etc., Welshpool, JOHN PArr CK. 23rd July, 1892. Secretary Conserve 3 (jlub^
THE FARMERS' OUTLOOK. To the Editor of the Montgomeryshire Express and? Radnor Times. Sir,—I am very sorry to learn that the agricultural outlook is anything but promising in your iaeighbour- hood. Here in Alid-Kent, in a radius of several wiles around my i esidence, we have the prospect of an abundant harvest of corn and fruit. Barley is' not much cultivated hereabouts, but the oats and wheat show up m excellent form—long in the straw, with heavy heats; the wheat all over the country just passing inti) a golden tinge. This is certainly the Garden of England" the land of corn, fruit, and hops. Tho latter are swaying their tendrils in the air high above their fourteen foot poles, and so far are safe. These want an equalization of tempera^ ture night and day. Our grand strawberry harvest is just hoff," as the waiter has it, and the ooater's cry of fresh drawn stra-a-a-berries, tuppence & pint." will not be heard again this season. Of bueb fruits we have an average crop; biack currants, however, considerably under the average. We are now in ihe very height of tile cherry time, and let me' tell you that lie who has not partaken of a Kentish Bigarau cherry is something akin to him who bad never kissed "a yullar gal." Tjey are crying them now at tupi.ence a pound fresh gathered." Oat of door grown marrows have already been cut by some of my neighbours cucumbers also. I hear no corn" plaint of any kind. Alter ten days of almost incessant rains the glorious orb ia ripeningallthtp fruits of thti earth to perfection. Within a few" yards of where I am writing this there is a clear unbroken space of nity acres laid down with one kind*- of potatoe. They are now in one sea of blossom that scents the gale. We have few, if any, Scotch aud north country farmers taking up farms in Kent, for the simple reason that they don't understand the oulture of hops and fruit; but on the Essex bide of the ThameV from me the northern men are continually taking up, vacant farms where grazing, corn growing, and the rearing of sheep and cattle is more suitable to them- and the land. They succeed where the sons of the, soil fail, the latter trooping away into the towns and1 cities.I aui, dear sir, faithfully yours, P;as Ynca, CHARLES AP THOMAS,* Singieweti Rjhd, Gravesend.
"VICARS OF KERRY." To the Editor of the Montgomeryshire Express and Radnor Times. Sir,-As you have thought proper to publish the" list of names appearing in this month's copy of the" Cedtwaiu Ruri-dtcunal Church Monthly Mayazine it iff- on'y right that I should inform you that it is the ,esult of the labours of E. Rowley Morris, Esq., who is publishing a History of tha Parish of Kerry" in the M ontgomcryshire Collections. Regarding thy comments you have been pleased to make t ie: eon. allow me to remark- I.-It is evidently imperfect, and contains those names only IDuntioned in the documents which Mr. Morris h-ts exiaiined. For instance, between Henricus do Breton in 1246 and Matthew in 1374 there mu-'t have been two, it not more, vicars, and a gap of ÐO years separates Maurice from Richard ap-, Rice. 2,- Your conclusion, therefore, that Henricus de-' Bretou iu 124o was the first Vicar," because her heads the list, is inaccurate. The well-known cou- troversy betweea Bishop Adam of St. Asaph and,, Gira'dus CambraUHis about the re-dedication of Kerry Church in 1176 carries its history very far back, for the word 11 /-('-dedicated used by Giraldne, signifies a Church previous to tho building in whiob he officiated. 3. Lastly, your expression (alluding to a period before the art of printing and the translation of the Scriptures) "tho Vicars appear to have been dis. linctJy foreigners," may unintentionally convey- an erroneous idea I apprehend that learning, 818 regards relig ous and secular matters in Wales, at that time was mainly due to teachers from outside the Principality. The appearance of a No;mac- Vicar i. 1246 would probably, therefore, be rather a source pf statist action to the parishioners thau other- wise.—I 8in, y. ur o^dient servant, Kerry. July 19, 1892.

CLAIM FOR DAMAGES FOR ALLEGED WRONGFUL DISMISSAL. THE EARL OF POWIS AND THE PARK KEEPER. At Shropshire Assizes on Saturday, Henry Twilley, late park keeper to Earl of Powis, brought an action against Lord Powis to recover damages for wrongful dismissal.-air Darling, Q.C., and Mr Lawrence were for the plaintiff, and Mr Jelf, Q.C., and the Hon. A. Lyttelton for Defendant. Mr Darling, in opening the case, stated that plaintiff was dismissed at a month's notice, whereas they contended, as his allow- ances and so forth were all made yearly, he should iiave had a year's notice, unless the conduct of plaint-iff was sueb as justified dismissal at any time. This, therefore, was one of the points for the jury. Mr Darling pointed out that although Earl of Powis was made the defendant it was his agent (Mr Addie) who wa- really the person who directly dealt with the plaintiff.—The agreement was adduced, but there was no specific mention of the time for which notice should be given, so that the case had to be tried acc ording to law and ousto,-n.-The bum of £ 10 had baen paid into court, and defendant contended that that was sufficient.-Piaintiff stated that on the succession to the ertat) of the present Earl, Mr Addie saw him with reference to engagirg him, and an agreement was entered into. Plaintiff was not charged any rent, rates, or taxes. Ou the 14th September plaintiff received notice to leave, and left Lord Powis's service in consequence of his it,sisting on it. By the agreement the allowances and wages came to money valus of .£113. Then there were perquisites which ho enjoyed worth in cash about -650 a year, so that the place al- together was worth about .£160. Plaintiff, since dismissal, had failed to find other employirent. Cross-examined: A question did arise on the 5th August between plaintiff and Mr Addie (agent) re- garding the taking away of fawns. Mr Addie at the time of the engagement did not tell him that he was to have fawns subject to the permission of Earl Powis Before then he had always had the fawn after the herd was kept up to a certain number. Mr Addie, as a matter of fact, told him that while certain per- quisites would be stopped he would have the fawn as usual. Later in August plaintiff was sending a fawn to Shrewsbury when Mr Addie stopped it going. Previous to then Lord Powis himself approved of his having the fawn, and that everything was to go on as usual. Lord Powis did not say that even if it had been the custom to dispose of the fawn without per- mission of the late Earl plaintiff must not give them away without the permission of the present Earl. The Earl did tell him not to ba impertinent, but that was for something he said regarding Mr Addie. He did say, when Mr Addie said he wa-i not entitled to the fawn, May the Lord strike the liar down," meaning whichever it was. He felt that Mr Addie was swearing his life away to the present lord, and if the late lord had been alive he would soon have put the matter right. He had tile perfect confidence ot the late lord. It was true that Earl Powis did request him not to again use the words quoted ibove, but he did not tell him to l"ave the room. This was the case for the plaint ff. Mr Ielf addressed the jury on b^iialf of defendant, ionto'iding that as plaiutiff was a menial servant .11 he notice he was er.tit'ed to was a month, while, on ihe other hand, it he was impertinent, he was subject r,o instant dismissal. Lord Powis wai then called. He said he had an terviaw with Twilly regarding the fawns, but he him no permission to kill them. He saw the ttwkl wbih wlS being sent to Shrewsbury, and >e'an80 of that he sent for Twiily on the 10th August and asked him to explain his conduct. Twilly -ai i he had aright to do so. Defoudentreoionstratod with him, and told him that whatever his right under iie late Lord he bad no right und'r the existing agreement to send fiwnr away, and must not do it D. f^rident aekeJ for the herd book, but plaintiff said he had not got one. However, defendcnt fono a. book supposed to contain the number of the hprd, and found from tha;. that ihe herd was very deficient in numb *r. He told plaintiff under those circumstances he hal no right to kill the fawn, but plaintiff «>dd he had a right ti kill them whenever he cljoqe. Defendant told him he thought thay were his deer and not plaintiff's. He told pla ntiff he wis displeased with him. but would not dismiss him then. He should place him under supervision. Plaintiff madi use of the expres.-ion, May God strike the iiar down," several times, and was very insulting. Defen- dant had to tell him to leave the room once or twice before be would go. Def-indant talked ti-.<i over with Mr Addie, and decided to dismiss plaintiff for his conduct at that interview. The notice vras delayed for three weeks, but that was sim;>Iy beeause he did not wish to damage Twilly's character. Cross-examined Defendant did non know wh'lt was the practice in the late earl's life re^Hrd.ng the fawn. Dofendant did not wish to say p.'ainriff was dishonest in sending away the fawn, or ho would have dismissed him at once. He thought, plaint ff had misunderstood hia right. There was r.othing about the fawn in the agreement. William Forrester Addie (agent to Lord Powis) said when the late E--tri died he (witness) gave notice to all the servants to leave. Plaintiff was re-en- gaged. Witness told him not to dispose of any fawns without the d;rection or sanction of Lord Powis. Witness wis present fit the itit-rview, and cou d betn- out Lord P-.vvis's evidence as to what took place. Witness was told to dismiss pUintiff in the couree of the autumu. The jury found a verdict for defendant. The Judge said he would not allow costs.
