+ Llantrisant Woman in Trouble. A QUARREL WITH HER BROTHER. Catherine Burke, a Llantrisant charwoman, was summoned at the Llantrisant police court on Friday for using obscene language on the 27th July. P.S. Davies gave evidence to the effect that he saw the defendant quarrelling with her brother in High street, Llantrisant, on the day in question. She was using most obscene language which was totally unfit to be repeated. Witness had written down a few samples of Catherine's eloquence which he now handed to the Bench with the idea of assisting them to properly appreciate the enormity of the offence. The defendant, however, denied the author- ship of the words attributed to her, and stated that the sergeant had greatly exaggerated them. She admitted having given vent to her feelings in a forcible manner, as she was in a passion owing to her brother having ill-used her. Her brother was a perfect brute and unfit to be among human beings. He had illtreated his mother and had wandered about the place like a madman. The defendant also added that she had black and blue marks on her through abuse. She often had to walk twenty miles a day to earn her living, and it was really too bad that she should be summoned for relieving her feelings when in anger, whilst her brother was allowed to go free. It was he who should have been summoned. After receiving excellent advice from the Bench she was fined 10s.
