Married Man’s Indiscretion.

George A. Glynn, who, at Doncaster on Saturday, summoned Elijah Findley, a Denaby miner, for assault, stated that defendant, who was married, had been posing as a single man and writing to his (complainant’s) daughter, aged 15.

Complainant went to see Findley about it, and defendant ran away and threw a stone at complainant, which struck him between the eyes and “knocked him out.”

Defendant, who admitted that he had been indiscreet in writing to the girl, was fined 40s or 14 days.
