Two Ware schoolboys appeared to answer a charge of stealing a watch and chain, valued at 30s. Alfred Akers, Priory Street, Ware, a maltmaker, employed by Messrs Hitch and Co. , said on January 29 he left the Maltings at about 7.10 p.m.

On returning just after 8 p.m. he found his watch and chain missing . P.S. F. Cook, of Ware, gave evidence of interviewing the two defendants. One of the boys took the watch and chain from his pocket and handed it to witness. The other boy said he went into the malting, but he was frightened and came out .

The Magistrates sent one of the boys, who had three convictions against him to a reformatory school for three years.

The other would be placed on probation for three years.
