The intense strain bent the tubular framing of the machine very badly, but Mr PATERSON after taking the bicycle to pieces was able to effect the necessary repairs without much trouble, and the machine is now in first-class order for the attempt to make a twelve hour record that
Mr PATERSON will essay next Wednesday.

A rather curious case was heard at the R.M. Court on Saturday. A carpenter at Moawhanga named R.J. JONES is also district constable. The latter position, is not marked by the wearing of a uniform. The constable, hearing what he considered to be disturbance in an accommodation house, that hs since had its license taken away, went in and recmonstrated with one Frederick ELY. What actually took place is related differently by the parties, bu the clear fact is that ELY struck the constable, and was charged with the offence.........ELY did not appear, but was represented by Mr SAINSBURY, who put in a plea of guilty. As extenuating circumstances Mr SAINSBURY urged that his client could not tell whether he was striking a constable or an ordinary citizen, seeing that JONES wore no uniform. Mr TURNBULL, R.M., who heard the case, imposed a fine of 10s with costs and expenses amounting to £3 11s.

A similar application was made by an old identity named William BARRY against his three sons. Mr CONFORD appeared for defendants, and conclusively proved that complainant was to blame in the matter.

A horse case, AMNER v. SMALE occupied the R.M. Court nearly all yesterday. In March, 1892, plaintiff bought an aged horse. It appears to have been a very sound and staunch animal, so far as a veterinary surgeon's examination could prove that, and in addition to have been a good worker. He paid £25 for the horse, and by training it to back, and to lie down in the stable improved the animal's value. SMALE borrowed the horse, and while working it the animal fell down dead, through the bursting of a blood vessel. Plaintiff sued to recover £33, the value of the horse, basing his claim on the allegation that defendant overworked the horse, and thus caused its death........After a patient hearing his Worship concluded that plaintiff had failed to prove the overworking, and gave judgment for defendant, with costs £1 15s, witnesses' expenses £3 10s, and solicitor's fee £2 2s.
