LLANDOUGH COUPLE MARRIED AND SEPARATED IN THREE MONTHS. Catherine Griffiths summoned her husband, John Griffiths, postmaster and grocer, of Llandough, for persistent cruelty. Mr. Harold Lloyd, solicitor, appeared for the defendant. Mrs. Griffiths said sno now resided at 80, George-street, Ba,rry Docks, and was married to defendant on August 27th last at Sully Parish Church. The cruelty ibegan about three weeks ago, when defendant caught her by the throat, and threw her against a bin. They had a few words concerning the children. There were two daughters of the defendant in the house, one single and one married with a baby three months old. Her husband threatened her, and she said she would get a separation order. A Mrs. John from across the road appeared to be doing as she liked, and was nearly mistress of < the house. Continuing her story, com- plainant said, "I called my husband to the back, and told him 1 was going to leave him. He said he would strangle me, and told me to do my worst. On November 4th he threw me on the floor in the bakehouse, and his daughter ran; out and called a policeman. '1 Com- plainant added, that a "lot of lies" must have been told her husband about her, or he would not have turned against her* in six weeks. "He picked me up," she said, "and threw mo out on some stones." Cross-examined, complainant said that defendant was postmaster at Llan- dough, and churchwarden at the Parish 'Church. He was a grocer and baker, and had lived there all his life. He was II 58 years of age, and she was 32. rr. Lloyd: He lost his wife, and had t?'n keeping up to you for about three years?—Yes. Before you were married you were a parlour-maid and cook?—Yes. Would you be able to get a parlour maid's position row?—No, because of the injuries I have received to my side. I You knew perfectly well where you Inoqu pus lakil 01 UO ojoav I his family ?—Yes. You also knew his single daughter was heljping him, because he had a lot of work to do?—Yes. And the married daughter came at your request ?:—Yes. The single daughter was doing the housework?—A little. And you were doing a little?—Yes. As little as you could I suppose? (Laoighter). On the 4th November the constable called in. Did you then have a table knife in your Iland ?—I had the knife. My husband said he would strangle me, and I was going to do the same for him. Did you threaten the policeman?- No; I asked him what he wanted, and he said "nothing." I told him to take it and go, and he went. (Laughter.) The fiyst month of your married life was very happy?—Yes. On September 30th did you threaten to leave your husband ?-TIle" first words were with his daughter. I asked her to go to the station to meet a friend, as I was .not well, and she refused. On the 14th October did you want to take on the post office work.Your hus- band did not think you were capable, and that, caused trouble?—Yes. Because he refused you behaved in a very tragic manner?—Yes, because he showed me up in front of a customer. You riaved and cursed and swore?— Yes and a little bit more. (Laughter.) Everybody else in the house were peaceable —Yes, except me. I understand that you are one who complains about being cruelly treated ? —Yes. The officer of the law comes in, from whom you would naturally expect protection, yet you ask him what he wants, and then tell him to "take it and go ? "—He was a friend of the family. What did you throw your wedding ring at your husband for? Was the idea to marry him, and then get a separation order, and make him support you?—I have supported myself for twelve years, and I think I can sup- port myself now. Did you smack his face?—Yes; he threw me against the bin, so I smacked his face. Did you take the communion wine away ?—I did not touch the communion wine. tt was missing, and was found in your box, was it not ?—Somebody put it in my box, and I had the blame that it was stolen. You got rid of the married daughter, did you?—Yes. And you had peace for 24 hours, I suppose?—A little longer than that. You made a mistake in the Post Oflke ?-Yes, I put two stamps on a postal order instead of one, and he blamed me in front of the customers. I objected, and walked out of the shop. Did he complain about you taking money out of the till?—Yes; I had to have money for housekeeping. I could take it if he would not give it to me. i Wm..Spencer, in defendant's employ, called and said that Griffiths did not throw his wife down ,in the bake-house. She fell over some tins, and her hus- band put her out. Mr. Lloyd, addressing the Bench, said that defendant was well-known and respected in Llandough. He had been churchwarden for thirty years. It was, Mr. Lloyd suggested, very cruel of a young woman to charge a man in I the evening of his life with this kind of thing. To some extent it was a case of "May and December. She had taken a knife to her husband, and she was of a very excitable and domineer- ing disposition. Defendant went into the box and de- nied the charges of cruelty. Mr. A. W. Travis: We are-quite satisfied that defendant has not been cruel to his wife. The case is dis- missed. MONDAY. Before Mr. J. Lowdon and Mr. D. W. Roberts. RATE ARREARS.

AN UNDIGESTED DINNER
AN UNDIGESTED DINNER. Worse than an ill-cooked dinner is a dinner which you can't digest. Do you know what it is to turn away from the best food, ill-humoured and without appetite, though you know it is dinner time and that you need food to sustain you? This is Nature's way of telling you that your digestion is out of order. Your stomach is not in a fit state to absorb food if you eat it, or your blood able to carry the necessary nourish- ment to your nerves, brain and muscles. First of all, put off eating until you are hungry. If you eat when you are not hungry you can't digest. To put your blood in the right state to derive good from your food, take Dr. Williams' pink pills. Without any purgative or weakening effect they will purify your blood and enrich it, so that you will not only have an ex- cellent appetite for your food, but also be able to digest it comfortably and get benefit from it. But a word of warning. You must not expect this re- sult from pink pills that are not genuine. There is a world of difference between Dr. Williams' pink pills and the substitutes sometimes offered, so get Dr. Williams' and watch how your ap- petite will improve. FREE.—A book of useful sugges- tions for those with a delicate digestion will be sent free if you write a post card to Offer Dept., 46, Holborn Via- duct, London.

I Miss Caple, headmistress of High- street Infants' School, reported that .there were twenty cases of scarlet fever in the school. There were also other complaints, which made the aAJtendance vety low. Out of 180 on the books, only 108 children were present. Dr. Pick said that children who had sufficiently recovered came into the playground with the other children, and in this way the disease spread. Mr. Howell Williams: The parents of these children should keep them in- doors. Mr. S. R. Jones agreed, and said that parents who failed to comply should be prosecuted. Dr. Pick was directed to bring the matter before the Health Committee. APPLICATIONS TO LEAVE I SCHOOL. Permission to leave school was I granted in a number of cases. MEDICAL OFFICER'S REPORT.

SCALE OF DENTAL TREATMENT FIXED. Dr. Pick suggested that a flat-rate be made for dental treatment at the School Clinic. Mr. S. R. Jones suggested a charge of 6d. per case.

Can't go on. j But-The Breadwinner Dares not Give up for Fear of Losing his Place. Every tells a OMM II V 1¥M HA f # Do YOU Drag Yourself Every Day to your Work, Dead-tired and Burdened with an Aching Back? Thousands do. Ana it's so often unngoonary., for in many oases then sufferings would end if relief were given the tired kidneys. Kidney troubles are very common among those who work, but too often the kidney weakness is entirely unsuspeoted and time is lost in wrong treatment. Blindly the Struggle is kept up. The breadwinner dares not give up, for fear of losing his place. Though painting and some other occu- pation* are especially hard on the kidneys, overwork in ANY occupation greatly in- creases the blood filtering task of the kidneys, weakens them and brings* backache and disturbances of the kidney secretions. It is a good plan to watch the kidneys and keep them well. Any stubborn pain in the back is cause to suspect kidney weakness. So is discoloration or pain or irregularity of the paoagee. And if th. is rheumatic pain, headaohe, lassitude nervousness, or dizziness, don't delay. Early kidneytroublea are easiest to cure. Doan's Baokaohe Kidney Pills are ft safe and reliable kidney remedy for all age*; they are guaranteed to be absolutely pure and to contain no harmful ingredients what- ever. They are compounded under the direction of skilled chemists, and ONLr INGREDIENTS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY PROCURABLE ARE BVBB UBED. These pills do not need to be taken indefinitely, but after a sufficient oourae their use may be discontinued. They have for years been a favourite family remedy the world over.

IREASON FOR ABSENTEEISM
I REASON FOR ABSENTEEISM. [ The Attendance Officer, when asked I the reason for the irregular attendance of boys employed outside of school hours, replied that he thought news- paper boys were the chief offenders. There was a boy working for one of the I newsagents who constantly stayed away from school. Mr. S. R. Jones was sure that the newsagent referred to would not know- ingly allow the boy to stay from school; and it was resolved to com- municate with the boy's employer. I I SUMMER TIME AJOT. I A circular letter from the Board of I Education, .enquiring if the Summer Time Act had affected the punctuality I of attendance of school children, was I referred to the head teachers. I REGULAR ATTENDANCE FOR I SEVEN YEARS. The Committee were informed that I John Edward Williams, 15, Lower Morel-street; Millicent Jenkins, 6, Digby-street; Edward Murphy, 22, Barry-road; and Catherine Burke, ot 6, George-street; had gained tho special prize. for regular attendance at school for seven years.
