I JEW v. GENTILE. I I AMUSING C\S-¡;-THE COUNTY 1 B COURT. 1 An amusing case was heard at the County Court on Tuesday, before His Honour Judge Bishop, when Samuel Landy, pieture-framer, g made a claim against William Mason, Ponty- berem, in respect of two enlargements. N Landy stated that he received 3s. when de- j livering the portraits, leaving a balance of 34s. Subsequently, defendant said he was not satisfied. He agreed to take the old photo back, and supply another enlargement, but g was never supplied with a copy. g J. Defendant stated that he agreed to purchase r the photographs, provided that they were g satisfactory. His Honour pointed out that the photo- graphs were not alike. g Landy said the man had no collar in the photograph, but wanted one put in the en, largement (laughter). His Honour: The shoulder's are crooked, g and there is no cap in the enlargement, whilst there is one in the photo. Landy (to witness): Have you got my receipt? Witness: I never had one. Landy: Look here, man; you are on oath. g Witness: I could not have a receipt. Sarah Anne Mason, wife of the defendant, said she was unwilling for Landy to take her husband's photo because she did not consider it to be good enough. She had never seen such a cheeky man. S His Honour: I dare say; neither have I either (laughter). Witness said that she paid Landy three con- sacutive shillings, and told him that she g wanted a separate bill for her own photo- graph. He declined, stating that she would have to pay for the two enlargements; or he would put her in the County Court. She re- plied, "Alright, I prefer to settle with the judge." B His Honour: Very good of you. I will settle it now a Witness: He also called me Mrs. Devil (laughter). Landy: Did you -agree to take the photos back ? B Witness: I did not. You are a liar. His Honour: Behave yourself, and don't, go in like that. I have to decide who is the liar. Defendant and witness then indulged in a Treat deal of irrelevant matter, His Honour wentually remarking that they were talking ;o rapidly that they were unable to under- stand each other. Judgment was given for 15s. 6d. without 'tosts, b and His Honour said the case should Se a warning to the defendant and other neople not to deal with these picture-framers.
