Cat bonnes Court, widow cf a soldier w ho fell in action in France three years ago. was summoned for abandoning her child, aged four months, in a manner likely to cause it unnecessary, suffering nr injury to health, on the 17th Septem- ber. Head Constable Mayall said the cir- cumstances were rather unusual. Under the Children's Act a person might be con- vietfvd for abandoning, even though the child did not actually suffer as the result. It would appear, he said, that defendant some time ago summoned a certain man in respect of this child and the summons '•-•as dismissed He (the Head Constable) believed defendant considered she had some cause for dissatisfaction. She took the child to the house where the man re- sided and laid it on the floor and left. The evidenco was that the defendant took the child into the bar of the Falcon Inn, Carmarthen, and loft it there. Defendant now sai.d she did not intend leaving the child in the bar. I have to half starve myself to buy milk for the baby," she said. Defendant was bound over in the sum of ÆO,
