PSG MEAL. J Had to be Buried in Garden Owing to Smell.. At Neath on Friday, Thomas R. Grant, 14, Western-road, Handsworth. llirmingham, was for Belling pig moal deficient in oil, and not in accordance with the guarantee on the invoice. Air. Edward Powell prosecuted, and said that on August 27th, Thomas Mor- gan, Preswylfa, Cwmgwrach, saw [\11 advertisement in which defendant offered for sale pig meal at 12s. 6d. per owt. That was lialf the price of pig meal, and it enticed defendant to seiwl an order for an hundredweight. When I it arrived it smelt badly of ammonia, and contained too much foreign matter, such as egg shells and grass, that Mor- i gan refused to give it to the pigs. Supt. j Ev&ns was- communicated with, a.nd samples were sent for analysis. The I certificate showed that the meal eon- tained 2.14 per cent. of oil instead of 5 per cent., and 27.5 of albuminods instead I of 12 per cent. Thos Morgan said the meal smelt J6; bad that he bnried it in the garden. Supt. Ben Evans produced the certi- ficate of the analyst, and, in imposing a LIO fine, Mr, H. P. Charles said the Bench considered it a bad case. Had;1 I boon given to the pigs, he did not know I what effect it would have had on them. I
