A FORGIVING WIFE. KICKED AND HIT IN THE EYE. A striking instance of the extent to which some wi\ies will forgive cruelty on their husbands' part was furnished at Chester Police Court yes- terday (Tuesday), when Henry Fryer, labourer, 2, Swan-court, pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife, a young woman. Complainant appeared in the witness-box with a badly decoloured eye. The Magistrates' Clerk (Mr. Davison): What do you complain of? Complainant: I do not wish to press the charge. What did he do to you on Sept. 23rd?—He gave mo a kick in the face and gave me a black eye. Tho Magistrates' Cieik explained that a sum- mons was issued against defendant, and as he did not appear a warrant was issued. Detective Hughes said the defendant came back on Saturday and thrashed his wife, giving her the present black eye. The Magistrates' Clerk: Is that so? Complainant: Yes. The Magistrates' Clerk said the onlv question was whether the Court would' allow the charge to be withdrawn. ° The Mayor: I do not think it ought to be withdrawn really. especially if it is true he re- peat.ed the offence last Saturday. (To the wife): You are disposed to forgive him? Complainant: He has got 14 days to do sinco then. I do not want to send him to prison. The Bench allowed the case to be w thdrawn. and the Mayor pointed out to defendant that if ho again assaulted his wife the present charge would not be forgotten If his wJe applied for a summons again it would not be withdrawn.
