Housekeeper's Short Stay. In this cpse, .which was heard at the last Coi. rt, a middle-aged woman named Margaret Ann Rees was charged with stealing bed-clothes, the property of Nicholas Owen, 20 Queen Street, Cwmdare. The woman was remanded last week to enable the police to make enquiries concern- ing her. Super. Rees now stated that he had communicated with Scot- land Yard, and the Finger-Print De- partment reported that she had been convicted at Swansea for stealing spoons. She was then fined C2. Prisoner was a married woman, and had seven years ago deserted her husband, who was a platelayer on the G.W.R. at Llanelly. During the last 7 years she had acted as house- keeper in various places. The Llan- elly police reported that she was addicted to drink. The Bench imposed a fine of R5 or one month.
Theft of Timber. Edwin Beynon, Cwmaman, was charged with stealing timber, the property of the P.D. Co. Mr. W. Kenshole prosecuted for the Com- pany. P.S. Carroll deposed that on the 10th inst. he met defendant near Cwmneol Colliery at 4.20 p.m. He was carrying a plank 14 feet long, which he said he found in the river. Witness took him back to the spot, and found that the plank had been placed there to prevent a wall being washed away by the river. The value was 6s. The Bench bound defendant over to be of good behaviour.
Alleged Wife Desertion. Influence of Fortune Tellers. Thomas Evans, now of Derwen Deg Terrace, Hengoed, was sum- moned for deserting his wife, Mary Jane Evans, now staying at Penrhiw- ceiber. Mr. W. Kenshole appeared for the wife, and Mr. E. Price Thomas, Bar- goed, for defendant. Mr. W. Kenshole, in opening, ÍÄid the parties had been married 22 years. About 12 months ago they took over the New Inn, Neyland, with money belonging to the wife. About that time defendant took to drink very heavily, and about last Christmas the public-house was not opened at all for one day. There was a servant at the Inn, and the defendant had told her in the pres- ence of his wife that the servant was to be mistress in future and Mrs. Evans was not to come to the bar tit all. The husband often abused his wife and once rushed after her with a red-hot poker. He had often told her to go, and a week before she left, which was last February, he tried to push her out. Complainant bore out her advo- cate's statement, and added that prior to going to Neylsnd they kept the Ivy Bush, Cwmaman. While there the servant girl had a child, of winch defendant was the father, and w itness had to pay 5s. a week to the girl for a considerable time. Wit- ness had £350 after her mother, and this money had all been spent in going into the Ivy Bush, Cwmaman, &nd New Inn, Neyland. In cross-examination, Mr. Thomas asked complainant whether she had spent money in having her fortune told. Witness hesitated to answer and the Stipendiary took up the ques- i tion. She admitted forwarding money to a Mr. Griffiths, Llanger- rig, North Wales, but refused to answer when asked what the money wns for.. The Stipendiary threatened to dis- miss the case if she would not answer. The witness still hesitated, and the case was put back till tlu- end of the Court, to enable Mr. Ken- shole to consult his client. When the case was resumed wit- j ness admitted she sent two 2s. bd. to the Air. Griffiths in question to have her fortune told, but she added that her husband knew of it. Defendant was called and said he was now a colliery timberman. His wife had sold a house at Mountain Ash to obtain money to go into the public-house. They lost L50 at Cwmaman through giving credit. He had occasion to complain of his wife not paying tradesmen's bills in Ney- land, and he had complained of the "fortune telling" that was going on. A woman from Abercynon, who nad: rui-. away with somebody, was calling at the house ,and they were always fortune telling. Since then he could i never have peace in the house, be-' cause she got very jealous of him.- In reply to the Stipendiary defend- ant said he was willing to go back to his wife if she stopped "reading cuds." Alice Journeaux, who in reply to the Stipendiary said she was not French, gave evidence to the effect that she was in service with the par- ties for 9 months at Neyland. She thought they lived very happily, with the exception of an occasional quar- lel. The husband had told his wife not to read cards because it was leading to a lot of bother. He had never abused his wife; he only caught hold of her arms sometimes. He never sent her away. She went of her own accord. The Bench were of opinion that there was no desertion. Airs. Evans was a person of morbid tempera- ment. The summons would be dis- missed.
