Denaby Mineworker Bound Over
Struck Small Son With Metal End of Dog Lead
George William Noble (31), mineworker, of Denaby, was bound over for two years at Doncaster, to-day, for inflicting grievous bodily harm on his seven-year-old son.
It was alleged he struck the boy with the metal end of a dog lead, causing an incised wound half an inch long on the side of the head.
The magistrates also ordered Noble to pay 40s. costs, and not to deduct it from the allowance for housekeeping made to his wife, who had said he gave her 30s. week for a family of three children.
