SAINTWELL WIFE'S STORY. i> m SMACKED AND BEATEN. Husband Summoned at Llandaff. On Monday at the Llandaff Police Court a young man named Albert Thomas Kent, of Wenvoe-road, Saintwell, was summoned for the non-maintenance of his wife, Lizzie Kent. Mr Yorath (Messrs Yorath and Jones) appeared for the prosecution. Mra Kent said she had been married about two and a half years. During that time her husband had smacked her face, thrown water over her, and beaten her with a walking-stick. On the 3rd ult. she found certain letters in her husband's pocket, and consequently left bim, telling him she would not.remain with him another night unless he could prove they were not his letters, She applied to the magis- trates a fortnight ago for a summons, and was advised to go to her husband and ask him to take her back. He refused to give her the key to the house, or to coma to any arrangement. On the 22nd August she posted to him a letter, of which the following is a copy :— 69, North-road. Cardiff. Dear Bert,—You did not keep your appoint- ment on Wednesday. I waited till half-past 4, a.nd then I cameont, On Saturday you did not or would not see me. I want to know what yoa. intend doing. I am longing to see the baby. It is you that have done wrong, bat as I told you, I am willing to forgive all. If yon intend having me back let me have a reply as-soon as possible, for me to know what to do. If 1 do not hear from you by Thursday, the 25th, I shall understand yoa have refused me a home. You have told me not to listen to others, bat I think yon ate doing so. Thinkit over and let tne know.—Prom Lizzie. She had no reply to the letter. He snatched the baby from her and had kept it from her since. It was only 18 months old, and she-was suckling it at the time. During their married -life he had not contributed anything for houae- .beeping purposes. He bought things himself. 'He came into a considerable legacyunder the will ,-of the late Mr Jacob Davies, of Saintwe}J- Oolonel Lewis said it was a pity to we 8G young-a coupte in this position, and upon his sug- gestion the parties retired for half an hour-with a .view to arriving at some understanding. Mr Yorath, however, subsequently stated that Tie was sorry to say the defendant declined to take jhis wife back, so that he (Mr Yorath) pressed for an order. Defendant was ordered to contribute 15s a week ^towards his wife's maintenance, and ta pay the costs, including advocate's fee, and to give up the baby to its mother.
