Singular Uandovery Case. SUED FOR SLANDER. John Davies, Penyfedw, Cilycwm, near Llandovery, at a Sheriff's Court,, conducted by Mr W. W. Brodie, at I Llanelly on Thursday, sued a widow, Jane Jones, of Cilycwm, for damages fcr slander. Mr D. Jones ap- peared for the plaintiff. Defendant did not attend. Mr Douglas Jones said his client had, for the past 18 years, managed a farm, and in February of last year ho was going to Llandovery, when he saw the plaintiff at Cilycwm. Defendant, who was a widow of indepen- dent means, asked him to bring her haH-a-sack of flour from the Llandovery Co-operative Stores, but he in- formed her he was afraid he could not do so that day, as he. had a load of coal and the day was wet. Plaintiff called at the stores and informed the manager what had transpired. It appeared that the flour was booked to Mrs Jones, and was subsequently handed over to an- other man for delivery to the defendant, who paid for it. Defendant, however, accused the plaintiff of hav- ing stolen half-a-sack of flour in her name from the Co-operative Stores, and asked the constable of the vil- lage to arrest him. A writ was issued, but defendant did not put in an appearance. The jury awarded the plaintiff £20 as damages.
