Pitiful Tale of Married Life. DOMESTIC TROUBLES OF A TRA.LLWN WOMAN. NO FRESH MEAT FOR FOUR MONTHS. At the Pontypridd police court, on Wednesday, David Evans, collier, Trallwn, was summoned by his wife, Sophia Evans, for using threats towards her on the 29th ult. In giving her evidence, the complainant, who was a respectably dressed woman, stated that on the night in question the defendant came home and pushed her about. He wanted to take some of the household goods away in order to obtain drink, but she would not allow him to. A fortnight ago she had had her home sold up. Her husband had not worked a full week since Whitsun. She had a comfortable home when she got married, and nearly all the goods belonged to her. She had been married 17 years, and had had eleven children, of whom there were only three alive. Her husband wanted all he could get to drink, and a short time ago the children went to Creigiau with the Sunday schools. This only cost her fifteen pence, but her husband begrudged that money. On one occasion her little boy, who belonged to the Band of Hope, went to look for his father, and the latter then tried to entice him to drink out of the pint with him. She wanted a separation order; she could not live with her husband as he would not support her. She had not tasted any fresh meat for four months, and that morning she had only had bread and water for breakfast. Her husband spent all his money in drink, and on Saturday she only received three turns from him for a month. Defendant stated that he was unable to work regularly as he was asthmatical, and his "place" at the Great Western Colliery was a very poor one. The Stipendiary advised Mrs Evans to go to the relieving officer, who would relieve her, and the latter would then take proceedings against the husband for her maintenance. He would adjourn the case tor a month.
