LAMP-LIGHTERS DAUGHTER. Wealthy Barrister Who Married: Masseuse. Doctor s Influence. I ) ¡ One of the most extraordinary oases I that had ever come before the court was how Sir Edward Marshall Hall, K.C., de- scribed a divorce case that come before Mr. Justice Shearman and a special jury- in tlie Divorce Court on Wednesday. Mrs. Dorothea. Morris petitioned for res- titution of conjugal rights, and the hus- band. described as a wealthy ULan, who denied that she had any right to the decree., asked for the dissolution of his marriage on the ground of her adultery with two co-respondents. Frederick Arthur Prim; and Frederick Hurt-Tucker. This was denied, and the wife charged her husband with a serious offence, which was also denied. I WEALTHY BARRISTER AND MASSEUSE. I Six E. Alarsholl Rull. K.C.. for Mr\ Morris, said his client was between fifty and sixty years old and a member of the Bar. He was married many years ago, but there was a divorce..Mr. Morris was subject to epileptic fits and an affection of the eyes. He was a man with several thousands a year, and in 1914 he went t& a West End establishment where lumbago, from which he also suffered, could be treated by massage and electricity. There there was engaged a very pretty girl. Mist; Dorothy Tate. She attended to him, and ho becaiflo infatuated with her He wanted to marry her, but she told him that she was engaged, but that her parents did not like tbp engagement. She said she wanted to take up a theatrical life, but could do nothing without the consent of her guardiaa. I DOCTOR AND PRIEST. I J)r. Pring, who represented himself as her guardian, came on the scene a little later, when he dined with Mr. Morris and the lady at a Coventry-street res- taurant. Dr. Pring had met her while she was a hospital nurse in 1912. Dr .Pring took his medical degree in 1883, but subsequently took Holy Orders, but after serving as deacon and priest he returned to the medical profes- sion, and went into partnership at Streatham. They were told that he was a married man separated from his wife, while Miss Tate, as she then was, remained at 'he massage establishment, where she had been socured as an assistant by .)1' Pring. She said she would like to train as a professional singer, and Mr. Morris offered to pay her expenses, and that was the matter under discussion when Dr. Pring came to dinner at Coventry-street, She said her father wa& a retired captain of the R.F.A. FOR THE HIGHEST PRICE. I I From May, W14, counsel suggested, Dr. Pring, who had acquired an lth- ence over her, set himself to ell her for the highest price that was obtainable from Mr. Morrife. and that, to use the lady's words, "Although she was going to marry Morris for his money she meant to stick to Prin." After lengthy negotiations it was agreed that the lady should have £ 200 ayear by way of piu money, and that itIO1000 should be settled upon her in the event of Mr. Morris' death. The marriage, counsel proceeded, tools place on July 4th, 1914, and Mr. and Mrs. Morris went to the Kitz Hotel. Paris. I ONE NIGHT HONEYMOON. I Tlie' honeymoon lasted exactly one night. They returned to London, and after a short stay at the Grosvenor otd she went to Dr. Prmg's house at MIreÜham, where she stayed until Augu.. In consequence of her absence petmonei wrote to her complaining- about the posi- tion in which she had placed him. To Ilhi she replied, accusing him of being rude to people and seinsh She said h? made her ashamed of him, adding: ?ome- tiln? I wonder I have any respect tor you!' That letter, said counsel, was wri.t.t.en under the Pring influence, and was pttrt of the Pring scheme to separate those two people, only ensuring an adequate allow- ance from Mr. Morris which Dr. Pring hoped to enjoy, and which, in fact, he did enj oy Later petitioner took his wife to Prince- town, on Dartmoor, but Dr. Pring came with them at her suggestion. They stayed at a hotel in separate rooms, Dr. Pring being in another part of the building, he declining to speak to her hnsband alter their arrival, and petitioner went away for a few days. SCENE IN BEDROOM. P'M I 1 1L.1. fl- 1 On his return ue .ouna unu v/V* hd moved mto a room next to his wife s a fact that made him resolve to assert his position. He went into her bedroom one morning in September. She locked the bedroom door and went for him." He held her hands to restrain her, whereupon tno faithful Pring came to the rescue burst open the door. jumped on the bed, and Mrs. Morris struck her husband violently while Dr. Pring hold him. Mr. Morris made his escape as best he cou ld Presently his wife came to his room and went so far as to say that she a would swing for him." Such language was not what. one would expeefc-. from the daughter of an officer, but, as a matter of fact her father was not an officer in the Army, but a lamp- lighter at Sheffield. At Christmas, 191G, slie wrote saying; May not wo ever be husband and wife again. Can I confide to you the great secret of my life. Pel'cv? I know I can make you happy. Will you let me? Can wo come together? Will you forgive mer 1 beg of vou forgiveness." The letter was signed, Your loving wife, Dolly." WIFE'S CHARGES WITHDRAWN. When the Court resumed after lunch Sir E. Marshall Hall said that Mr. Bawlinson had intimated that he did not intend to fake any further part in contest- ing the case. and would not persist in the charges made bjutho wife against her hus- band. It woiUcr therefore only be neces- sary to prove the case as against Dr. Pring. Mr. Beddington said that Captain Tucker was on the way from America to meet the charge against him. Sir E. Marshall Hall said the "great secret of her life was the fact that in 1910, when she was little more than a girl, she had an illegitimate child. On Janu- ary 5th, 1917, she wrote to her husband an extraordinary letter, in which she said: The influences which once ex- isted are no longer powerful. For a long time I realised how I was being ruled by others. I have made you suffer, but I also have suffered much. 1 throw my- self on your mercy and I long to settle down to married life." I "FLIRTING WITH OFFICERS." I l At first Mr. Morris refused to live with her, but in April, 1917 however, they resumed co-habitAtion, but it was not long before the wife began to flirt with officers. At that time they were living at Folkestone, and counsel sug- gested thatJgr. fgF< £ d this uafQfr tunate woman to go back against her will so as to extort a larger allowance from Mr. Morris. Coming next to the alleged miscon- duct with Captain Tucker, counsel said he was in the American Army, and Mrs. Morris lived in the same flat as the cap- tain at Liverpool. Later on she left him, and counsel read a long statement written by her in a waiting-room at Brighton, addressed to her husband. In this she said that for eight years Dr. Pring had had gresit influence oyer her. She was at first flattered by him. but then she began to see his faults ano tried to get awav from him. He told her that he would tell her husband about having had a child before she was mar- ried. She confessed that while' she was in Paris he wrote four letters which un- settled her and prevented her doing her duty to her husband. WIFE IN TEARS. I His Lordship granted a decree nisi with costs against Dr. Pring and dis- missed Captain Tucker from the suit without costs. Sir E. Marshall Hall then said that b. Morris had agreed to allow his wife £ 430 a year. His Lordship said he was very pleased that Mr. M orris had agreed to do this. On hearing this Mrs. Morris burst into tears.
HEALTH CAN BE YOURS I Trace the Cause of the Trouble. I It is nothing more than a waste of money and time to fight merely the signs of disease; in the long run you are no better off than when you started. Wrhat is far more important is that you should intelligently examine the various symp- toms and trace the cause. When you remove the cause health will be yours. For instance, amends people very often endure months of suffering while fighting its symptoms, such as indigestion, short- ness of breath, pain round the heart, palpitation and exhaustion after any small effort. The apparent stomach and heart troubles are generally nothing more than the result of an insufficient supply of pure blood. This anaemic state may Jiave followed some previous illness or influenza, or perhaps has arisen from worry, overwork or too little fresh air. Obviously, the simple and proper course is to renew and build up the blood, but to do this you must select a reliable remedy with a reputation, such as Dr. =?1, 1 pink pills. These pills make new red blood which carries nourishment to all the organs of the body and ena bles them to do the work Nature expects of them. Normal health is then soon re- stored. Thousands of men and women have proved this for themselves after suffering much ill-health. One of these is Miss Eveline Bolton, I of Lorraine Place, Sackville Street, Leeds. About a year ago I was so ill with anaemia, indigestion, and overwork that I had no pleasure in life said Miss Bol- ton. I cannot describe the tiredness which was on me all the time; I simply could not keep awake. Soon I grew to want no meals. Food looked and tasted unpleasant to me. "Although I ate and drank so spar- ingly I was tortured with indigestion, and had terrible pain and flatulence after everything I took. Heartburn trouhled me greatly and my mouth felt dry and parched. Headache caused me hours or misery; and my back felt as if it would break in two. "I had advice, and was treated for anaemia and overwork, but medicine did me very little good. It was no uncom- mon occurrence for me to faint two or three times a day. For over six months I dragged out a miserable existence. Then a friend of mine was cured of acute ante in ia and debility by Dr. Williams' pink pills, and I decided to give them a trial too. "In a very few weeks I was a dif- ferent girl. Almost like magic the tired- ness began to leave my limbs. I knew it was no magic though, but just the pills giving my blood the strength and purity it needed. My appetite grew very keen, and I could eat all that was put before me. Indigestion was soon a thing of the past, so were the fainting attacks, and I felt fit and well." Don't wait another day before giving Dr. Williams' pink pills a thorough trial. Go to any dealer and obtain a supply, but ask for Dr. Williams'. FREE. A free book of health will be 'sent to any reader who sends a postcard to Book Dept., 3G, Fitzroy Square, London, W. 1.
TAWE LODGE PROBATIONERSI Improvement in Standard of I Candidates. In his report at Tawe Lodge Visiting Committee on Wednesday, Dr. Lloyd Ed- wards reported that the last examination of probationers had produced very en- couraging results, as all- had passed the tests with marks above the necessary number, and had displayed good educa- tion. He was glad to report such improve- ment, and as the type of probationer of late had been inferior from the educa- tional point of view. In fact, at the last examination, not ojiq candidate had passed. s- —-1 •
MORE LIGHT. Complaints and Improve- ments in Llandilo-Tafybont. The usual monthly meeting was held at the Council Room. Gorseinon. Mr. Isaac 1.. Davies (Pcntardulais) presiding. The hon. secretary of the Grovesond Ward Lalwur Committeo urged the ex- pediting of the lighting up of Groveselld- row and New-road, and Mr. Noah J. Davies, M.E., also brought forward the case of Penyrheol. Other complaints were also ventilated, and it was agreed that the Gorseinon members should meet the directors of the Electric Lighting Co. in order to bring about a better state of affairs. The company also asked for an increase in the public, lighting at £:J 10s. per lamp instead Of 5:2 tfs. 3d., as hereto- fore. This item will also he discussed by the joint conference. An improvement in the lighting of Grovesend railway station was reported. Globes, etc.. having been now received, the clerk reported that all public lamps in the i'outardulais area will be lighted forthwith. PONTARDULAIS MATTERS. I The County War Agricultural Com-1 mittee are making further inquiries re I the Glasfryn-road allotments. It was re- ported that part of the obnoxious hoard- ings at the entrance to Pontardulais Junction had been removed; and that the surface of the iitiii county road had he en vastly improved hy the rccent, gravel- ling. Messrs. W. R. Evans and Thomas Lewis (Gorseinon), and I)d. Bonnell and T. D. Kichards (Pontardulais), with the chairman and clerk, were deputed to bring in a report on the revision c¿f burial f-es in the parish. The local surveyor wrote that the ex- pense of providing and maintaining a public call office would not justify the ex- pense of providing a telephone office at Grovesend.
TAWE LODQE ENTERTAIN-I MENT. I The question of entertaining the in- mat, of Tawe Lodge was broached at the Visiting Committee on Wednesday (Mrs., n. D. Williams in the chair). It was resolved to utihse the ?0 contributed by Alderman Ben Jones. ex-Mayor, for the purpose, and a C'mm;ttee was I elected to ma ke the arrangements.
11 FIRE AT GROVESEND. 'I Outbreak at Colliery Old Pit. I The Gorseinon Fire Brigade had a call to a fire at the Grovesend Colliery old pit in the early hours of Thursday morn- ing, the lamp-room be lug ablaze. It appears that the lampman had been called away, and in his absence the place got on fire, and was well alight when Mr. Williams, grocer (who lives opposite the buildings) from his window gave the alarm to some of the men in the yard, but the roof was well ablaz-e then. P.C. Lyons (Gorseinon) waa on the spot in a short time after the call, and ren- dered valuable assistance with tha helpers, among whom was Mr. T. Perry, Parish Councillor. Inspector Nicholas and Mr. McMillan j had the hose cart there. Dainage is 1 estimated at £000. The cause of the fire is unknown.
WOM E N'S'ASSOC I AT ION., Pontardawe Public Meeting., A public meeting was held at the Pub- lic Institute, Pontardawe, on Wednesday night, in connection with the Pontardawo branch of the Women's Association. The meeting was addressed by MiSS V. M. Bees, B.A., of the High School :fnr Girls, Swan-sea, on the subject of health. She said the war had had one good effect in calling attention to the subject of health. The Premier's phrase about 'tbe impossibility of an A1 empire with, only a C3 population had caught the imagina- tion of the people. The transferring of the caw of housing to the newly-estab- lished Ministry of Health was significant. The preventive medicine was the principal line of modern medical research, and the medical education of the people was pro- ceeding apace. Touching upon the new Fisher Educa- tion Act, she said that one of Britain's greatest debts to Mr. Lloyd George was his entrusting of educational affairs to a ma.n who knew what education shouldr bo, A vote of thanks to the speaker was proposed by Mrs. D. Williams, and sec- onded by Miss Blair Powell.
COURT OF MEMORY. Cenotaph to be Erected on Promenade. Swansea's Memorial. jLt-m moetteg-of the Executive of the Swansea War Memorial Committee on Wednesday afternoon, the Mayor (Coun- cillor W. H. M lies) presiding, tho trea- surer (Mr. W. H. Ashmole) reported that up-to-date he had received thought they could rely upon that being increased, but that was all they had been able to do up to the present. Major Bradford said the body he repre. sented had £ 35 or 1:40 to come in, and lie hoped there would be more. The Mayor said he believed quite a number of bodies were not yet in a posi- tion to make their totals known. He had invited suggestions from Messrs. Webber and Sons and E. E: Morgan (Borough Architect). Mr. Webber wrote that in their view the memorial should take one of three iorros: (1) Several small structures in various parte of the district; (2) An impressive memorial placed in a prominent position of public resort, where the public could see it; or (3) An impressive memorial of such dimensions, and so placed as to compel attention at all times. For No. 2 there was no good square space, available, although one of the parks could be used as a last resort. For So. 3, Town Hill seemed ideal, and a clock dial in it 10ft.-12ft. in diameter would be readable 1^ to 2 miles away. Messrs. Webber sent sketches. ON THE SEA FRONT. I Mr. Morgan wrote that after due con- I sideration he considered the most suit- able site to be the Promenade tor many reasons:—(1) JeIDg on the seaboard, it would be applicable to both Services; it would be alongside the most fre- quented highway and the site being ele- vated, it could be seen from a large por- tion of the borough. He had seen Mr. Grant Murray, and considered other sites:—(1) The summit of Town Hill; (2) A position in front of the new municipal buildings, forming a feature of the, civic centre; (3) Various parks. The diffi- culty with Town Hill would be that the I monument wotild have to be on a scale in proportion to its situation and have to raised on an elevated terrace and podium. As to the civic centre, the difficulty was that the town planning scheme of the Borough Surveyor was in its initial stages, with the civic centre undecided. The various parks did not appear to be suitable, neither could they suggest favourable positions in the town itself. He submitted a rough cartoon which he had prepared during the week- end. "COURT OF MEMORY." I [This sketch showed a striking, very sligbtlv ornamented cenotaph. liUft. high, at about the middle of the Pro- menade. Constructed of Portland stone, upon a native stone podium, it would rise from the centre of an elliptical Court of Memory," approached by steps leading down from the main avenue Upon the interior walls would lie tablets bearing tha names of the fallen.] The Mavor riid the sub-committee, after considering several designs sent in by Mr. Webber and one by Mr. IJ. E. Morgan, recommended the latter s de- sign for a cenotaph on the Promenade surrounded by a court in memory to the men of Swansea who gave their fives for the country; that Mr. Morgan be re- 1 quested to carry it out at a cost not ex- ceeding £ 3.000, conferring with Mr Grant Murray. ONLY A MEMORIAL. I Capt. Aubrey Williams, while agree- ing with the proposal, suggested that the should be a larger meeting to de- cid** what the monument should be. The Mayor pomted out that every member o7 t? (ommittee had been cir- cularisetL with the business of the mcet- ing. agreed that there ought to bQ a. attendance but ijijs ç, I be depended upon. He took it that Capt. Williams did think the pro 1 posal would not not tind favour with tlio absent members of tHe committee? Capt .Williams: No. Mr. Payne argued for a special memo- rial for Mumbles, but the Mayor said in reply that if anybody could object to the proposed site it would be the north- ern and not the western inhabitants. The name of every man on the extended borough who fell would be inscribed in the court of memory. If they attempted to follow Mr. Payne's suggestion it. would mean an expenditure of at least another £1,000 in separate tablets, and he knew there was a strong opinion that they should keep the actual memorial scheme within the financial limits men- tioned, so that more could go to the en-1 dowment of education of the children of I the fallen. The report was adopted. EDUCATIONAL PART OF SCHEME. It was decided to appoint a commit-, tee of nine to administer the educational part of the scheme, consisting of nominees of the Chamber-of Commerce, Labour Association, Discharged Soldiers (two), Metal Exchange, War Pensions, with the Mayor, his secretary and the treasurer. The Mayor pleaded for more money. He believod some of the works and em- ployes were considering liberal dona- tions, but unless the response was much greater than was indicated they would have to lower their arm, which was to benefit all the children of the fallen.

COUNCIL SLIGHTED. At the meeting of the Llandeilo-Taly- | bont Council Mr. W. R.

Neither had the parish its nominees on the Gowerton Group of School Managers. It was felt that the higher authorities had acted in a most undemocratic action, and j&glasiijss to, looge t
