BARMAID SUES HER UNCLE. Damages for a Personal Assault At Ystrad County Court on Tuesday (be- fore Judge Williams), Miss Ruby Jones, Rutland Arms, Swansea, late of Ystrad I Rhondda, brought an action against her uncle, Mr. Hugh Jones, Castle Hotel, Tre- herbert, to recover C25 damages for alleged personal injuries. Mr. R. T. Leyson, solici- tor, Swansea., supported the claim, and Mr. Hugh Jones (instructed by Mr. D. W. Jones, I Pentre) defended. Mr. Leyson said that plaintiff was 17 years of age and went to assist at the Castle in consequence of her aunt's illness. Defen- dant had "some words" with his wife on the 14th of May and was assaulting her when plaintiff tried to prevent him. She was I struck three violent blows in the faoe, which disfigured her and necessitated her being at- tended by a doctor. GVGCS-examined, Miss Jones said defen- dant would have half-murdered them had she not called out "murder" through the window so as to secure assistance. Defen- dant was under the influence of drink that nifht, and did not know what he was doing. Defendant accused plaintiff of being the aggressor, and accounted for her injuries by saying that she fell against the bed. His Honour, in giving judgment for the plaintiff for £ 15 with costs on the higher scale, commented upon defendant's action and pointed out that girls at public-house bars had cmite enough to put up with from other people without being subjected to this sort of annoyance.
