BROXTON PETTY SESSIONS. YESTERDAY (TUESDAY). — Before Mr. J. H. Leche and other magistrates. MORE DRUNKENNESS AT FARNDON.—Edward Holmes, James Dawson, and Edward Sheen were summoned for being drunk at Farndon on Sunday, July 25th.—P.C. Schofield proved the case, and Holmes was fined 10s. and costs, and the other defendants 5a. and costs each.— Patrick Whelan, of Holt, was fined 5s. and costs for the same offence on the same day. The police sergeant who proved the case said defendant came from Holt to get drink. A YOUNG MAN UNDER THE BED: ALARMING DISCOVERY.—John Humphreys (18), son of a small farmer at Shocklach, was charged with being on enclosed premises at Shocklach on the evening of August 24th. Allan Vaughan, tenant of the Fish Inn, Shocklach, said his daughter, on going to bed at half-past 11 on the evening in question, saw a man under the bed. She ran downstairs in a state of fright, but when witness went to her room there was no one there. The curtain was half way through the window. He could not see anybody outside, but on the following day a pair of boots were found in his yard, and he observed marks upon the spouting by the window.—By the Chairman His daughter and prisoner had not been courting.—Mary Vaughan, aged 17, spoke to finding prisoner under her bed.—The Chairman Why did you look under the bed.—Witness: I always do. (Laughter.)—Ellen Steen, a servant, deposed to finding the boots produced under a stone bench in Mr. Vaughan's yard, and P.C. Richardson stated that prisoner when arrested admitted that the boots were his.—Prisoner's father gave evidence on behalf of his son, and the Chairman remarked to him that the Bench were unable to decide whether prisoner went to the inn for the purpose of a robbery, or with the idea of doing some violence to the young woman.—Prisoner pleaded guilty, stating that he was drunk and did not know what he was doing.—He was sentenced to two months' hard labour, the Chairman remarking that he might have seriously frightened the young woman. FARMERS AND BETTER TIMES. — James Thomas Bennett, cheese factor, Levenshulme, was summoned for being drunk while in charge of a horse and trap at Malpas on July 28th. The case having been proved by P.S. Bottom and P.C. Harrison, defendant admitted that he had had some refreshment, but he was not drunk. He had been to Nantwich cheese fair, and had been driven by a farmer friend to Malpas.—The Bench fined defendant 20s. and costs, the Chairman remarking that perhaps the rise in the price of agricultural produce had made defendant's agricultural friends a little more generous. (Laughter.) SEQUEL TO A HOBBY HORSE RIDE.—Robert Holmes, Common Wood, near Malpas, sum- moned Edward Lewin, Buckley, for assault.— Complainant said that on August 23rd at Malpas soiree he had a ride on the hobby- horses. He paid when he went on the hobby- horses, and defendant, who was employed at the hobby-horses, wanted him to pay again when he came off. Because he refused, de- fendant struck him.—Fined lOa. and costs (9s.6d.) DOMESTIC INFELICITY. — John Hough, labourer, Farndon, was summoned for per- sistent cruelty, by his wife, Harriet, who also applied for a separation order.—Complainant alleged that her husband had, among other things, struck her in the eye, causing her to lose the sight of it.—The defendant said he was willing to have his wife back. He denied the cruelty.—The Bench considered the case not proved and dismissed it, at the same time cautioning defendant.—Mr. Barnston did not adjudicate on this case.
