I DOGGED MAN FROM BRYNMENYN. I Perverted Taste-Greyhound Before Wife! Isaac James Stock, a collier, living at Green- field, Brynmenyn, was summoned by his wife, Catherine, a respectably dressed, pleasant-faced woman, of The Avenue, Pontycymmer, who alleged desertion.—Defendant: She deserted me. —Compliinant said she married in 1901, and her husband's wages, with those of his son, to- talled > £ 1 a day. Defendant repeatedly told her to clear out, and also had ill-used her. Many times he had threatened to "kill and murder her," and his conduct was perfectly unendur- able. The climax came when he took the grey- hound to bed with him. (Laughter.)—The Chairman (Alderman Wm. Llewellyn) Why did he take the greyhound to bed with him,- I don't know; I can't say. He is very deter- mined, and wants me to keep out of the house. It is nothing but dogs and rabbits for everlast- ing. My life is a perfect misery.—Defendant: I was in bed after the beer.—The following note was put in which Mrs. Stock left be- hind her when she left:—" December 2nd, 1917. To Isaac Stock. You know you told me and the children twice last week to clear out, which you have told me many times before, and as you prefer the dog to me, I think it better to take you at your word, a" your tongue is filthy, and your hands are none too safe and I don't see why I should be a punching-ball for you. Of course, there is a law to make you maintain me. I am letting you know the rent is due a week to riorrow, so don't interfere with me in any way. I am your lawful wife, Katie Stock.ihe Bench made an order of mainten- ance at the rate of 25/- a week (the instalments to be paid through the Court), and bound defen- dant over to be of good behaviour for six months.
