Following Me all over Dowlais. PENYDARREN MAN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. At Merthyr police-court, on Friday, Lewis Wilding, a young man, repairer underground, who lodged at the Mason's Anus Inn, Penydarren was charged with attempting to commit suicide by cutting his throat with a razor, at Dowlais, on the 23rd April.—Inspector Lamb said that on the day in question the defendant went to Dowlais police-station, and said he wanted to give himself up for running away from his lodgings. Witness asked the man if he had stolen anything, and he replied No." The inspector told him to take a walk, and later P.C. T. Lawton found the man in Market-street, bleeding from a wound on the throat. lIe was taken to the police-station, where a blood. stained razor was found in his pocket, and he had a wound on his throat three inches in length. Defendant said, I may as well do it, because people are running aftef me; they are following me all over Dowlais." At that time, however, the street was perfectly empty. Accused had since been a patient at the Infirmary. At the poliec-court, on Tuesday, Wilding was again brought up, charged with the offence.- Col. Lewis, Magistrates' Clerk, said the doctor had certified that the man was not of unsound mind.—The landlord of the Masons' Arms appeared, and offered to look after the man.—In dismissing him, the Stipendiary told Wilding that he must not do such a. thing again, or he would have to go for trial. Wilding, who appeared to feel his position, promised not to repeat the attempt.
