V IF??????EORYYS. 'ATEI ?? B?CK"?AN'?OLL!ERY. At Wrexham County Children's Court,, ou Tuesday four boys, employed at the Westminster Colliery, were summoned by Major R. A. Brown, Agent to the Black Lane Colliery, Pent re Broughton, for damaging lamps, gauge glasses, and other property, belonging to the Company, of the value of A 14 10s.- Mr. Wynn Evans represented the boys.—It appeared from the evidence of the prosecution that on Feb. 20th the Colliery was closed, and all the officês was secured On the 24th it was found that con- siderable damage had been done to the place. The colliers's lamps and several of the engine gauges had been smashed. Several doors had been forced open and the windows of the engine house were also broken. A boy named Pryce Griffiths (15), said he went to the Colliery with other boys on a Monday in February. The defendants were on the premises. Altogether, between 40 and 50 boys were there.— P.O. J. O. Williams, who chased three of the lads from the Pithead on Feb. 22nd, and P.S. Howells gave evidence that when confronted with each other the defendants admitted the offence and handed over the tools belonging to the Company, which had been taken away.—Mr. Evans said defendants' con- duct was a foolish Act of tresspass which could not be defended, and he could only ask the Court to deal leniently with them in view of their previous good character.—The magistrates ordered each boy to pay A2 towards the damage caused to the Com- pany's property.

1 LIVELY NORTH WALES STORY. I COASTGUARD SUSPICIONS. Oae of the duties performed by the soldiers bil- leted at Llandudno is to provide a guard for the Great Orme's Head and the coastline, topreventor detect:any attempt to communicate with any enemy sabmaries by any form of signalling. Signalling by flash light is obviously a practicable method of sending messages from the shore to the sea, and a good look out is kept for suspicious lights. The Military Guard on the southern slope of the Orme were rather puzzled by a mysterious light appearing and disappearing in the window of an empty house in Cyclach-road, and they determined to investigate. Accompanied by couple of special constables, several ot the Guard entered the house in question early on Saturday morning and, while they saw nothing to indicate how the lights bad been produced, they found there a travelling rug, a considerable supply of cakes and other confectionary, and an unopen bottle of cham- pagne. This certainly made the mystery greater so the rug, the cakes and the bottle of wine were commandeered and banded over to the police. Poiice-Sergt. Richards was detailed to investi- gate, and he ascertained that the cake and cham pagne hed been bought in the town. He was able further to discover that the wine had been sold to a well-known resident who occupied the house next to the empty residence in question. Then the mystery was cleared up. The resi- dent alluded to has two young children, a boy and a girl, aud they had a cousin staying with them. In the spirit of adventure they had in- vaded the premises next door, and had planned a grand picnic in the drawing-room, from which there is a fine view of the town and the mountains. Their father's rug and the wine and cakes were smuggled in in readiness for the blow-out" on Saturday afternoon, of which the untimely curi- osity of the alert soldiers deprived them.

ROYAL WELSH IN ACTION. I A THRILLING STORY. I HOW HEAVY LOSSES WERE INCURRED. I The special correspondent of the Morning Post at the British Headquarters in the field, sends to his paper a thrilling story of the British advance in the region of Festubert and La Basse on the night of Saturday May 15th in which the Royal Welsh Fusiliers playeda glorious part. He says the experience of the regiment shows the tremend- ous difficulties which had to be overcome by the attacking troops in storming and holding the German positions. I give it in detail in order to convey some idea of the method of assault. This battalion composed principally of North Wales miners and Birmingham men, suffered severely in previous engagements. It came out of the battle of Ypres with 35 men and no officers, having performed extraordinary acts of gallantry. As part of the force assigned for the Festubert attack it went into the advanced line on the night of M yl5th, brought up to full strength, and was ordered to charge the enemy's trenches next morning as soon as the bombardment ceased. The bombardment lifted at exactly the time arranged by the officers' watches. It was a dull, dark morn- iug, and the No Man's Land in front of the Fusiliers was hidden by a mass of Lyddite fumes the enemy's trench 150 yards distant, being in vis- able. Shells from the German howitzers fell thickly behind the waiting battalion, for the enemy realised what was coming, and they made a desperate effort to weaken the inevitable infan- try shock. Up went the six-foot scaling ladders along the parapet of the Welsh Fusiliers' trench and at the word of command eager men were scrambling at each other's heels—behind each ladder—pouring over the parapet and taking the eight feet drop into the zone of fire as coolly as athletes competing field sports. The first man was scarcely ready to jump before a terrific rifle and machine gun fusillade was launched at our position from the enemy's trenches reinforced by a rain of trench mortar shells. So great was the clatter of musketry that it momentarily obscured the artillery bombardment. We forgot the shells," one officer told me, "for it seemed as though all the Mausers in the world were directed against us." Men began dropping immediately, but the line never faltered. Lieutenant-Colonel Gabbett had hardly set foot on the open ground before he fell dead with five bullet wounds in his body. A second later Major Dixon, the second in command, was shot through both legs within a few yards of his own trench. Captain Rockwell pressed on across the riddled field with his thinning first line, with the second line already close behind. Had it been a straight- forward dash into the German trench the Welsh Fusiliers would have gained the goal with fewer casualties, but instead of a clear run across country they had to negotiate a broad, deep ditch less than a hundred feet from their breastworks. Never- theless, the first line got up to the first German trench in less than three minutes, and poured through the two breaches made by our guns. The enemy's rifle fire ceased instantly. A few showed fight and tried to meet bayonet with bay- onet, but they were speedily overpowered. The majority scurried like frightened rats into a long communication trench some threw away their rifles and surrendered immediately. I IN THE ORCHARD. I The Fusiliers bad orders to push through 300 yards of communication trench and gain an orch- ard about 600 yards beyond. They had lost heavily in officers and men in the time it took to reach the enemy's first line, and German howitzers were now concentrating on them with furious salvos of high explosive shell. Of the machine guns only one now remained—in charge of Serg- eant Butler, who had been wounded at the begin- ning of his journey, but nevertheless stuck to his gun and brought it into action when the work of clearing out the enemya' trench began. They were being enfiladed by the German machine guns. Still they pushed on. Capt. Rockwell led his men along the trench, stumbling over corpses and the debris scattered about by British shells. On the way they met about thirty-five men of the Scots Guards, who joined them. A hundred yards further along they came under the fire of our own guns, for the advance had been made much more rapid than had been thought possible. For an hour they lay safely under cover while the British artillery systemat- ically bombarded the dug-outs and second line trenches in which the enemy strove to maintain a footing. Then the shelling ceased. The air cleared and Capt. Rockwell could see the orchard which was his objective. Just then a German officer and two men rushed down the communica- tion trench dragging a machine gun. The Fusil- iers end Guardsmen fired volleys, killing all three instantly. They pressed gradually along the communication trench bombing as they went, un- til they got to the orchid at the end, a distance of 1,200 yards from where they started. Here they found a dozen ruined cottages held by German machine gun parties. Although there were only four bomb throwers left they cleared the first cottage beyond the trench, which they put in a state of defence. It was impossible, however, to storm the second cottage thirty yard distant on the other side of a road. It was, apparently, packed with infantry, who sniped steadily, and it also afforded cover for a number of machine guns. The Fusililiers made several brave attempts to dislodge them, and were then forced to remain on the defensive. They established a post in the first cottage, and the other men dug a trench accross the square end of the long communication trench to stop the disastrous enfilading fire. Here Captain Rockwell and his little band stuck it through the day, only falling back at night to the German second line when ordered to retire. Seven orderlies were sent back during the day for reinforcements, but only one got through. Cap- tain Rockwell's servant was one of the volunteers killed when trying to get a message through to headquarters giving the location of the party. HEROES OF THE AMBULANCE. I The work of the Welsh Fusiliers yielded a valuable strip of the enemy's heavily fortified -position won by heavy sacrifices. Great bravery was shown by the ambulance parties, which began working the moment the first men fell outside the. British parapet. Lieutenant Kelsey-Fry, R.A.M.C. (who carried Lieutenant Gladstone out of action on his back), was dressing wounded between the trenches for hours until he was hit by shrapnel. Lance- Corporals Welsh and Condry, both stretcher bearers, rescued many men under fire. Welsh, who is a man of great strength, began picking up wounded as soon as the attack began. He carried seven himself through the heavy fire, including Major Dixon, second in command. Condy was wounded in the arm and unable to carry stretchers but he continued to bandage. All the stretcher-bearers of the battalion worked for 24 hours without rest. A number of,, Germa-al prisoners taken] by th Welsh Fusiliers were Polish miriers|from West- phalia, who appeared to be glad thatptheir fight- ing days were ;over.a: For two days after its suc- cessful attack the weakened battalion held the pos- ition assigned it until relieved by fresh troops and allowed to go back.
