Kicked the Horse. joseph Pichtle. a Belgian, employed as a farm hand at Llausaintfiraed, was ,tiiiiiiloncil for cruelty to a horse by kicking it, on the 22nd inst. Mrs. Bosanquet, wife of the Chief Constable of Monmouthshire, said she saw defendant coming out of a held near her house with a wagon.

She call-(I to him and he came blCk for a minute or two and said It is all right it i, Mr. David's mare." She said that whoever .vned it it should not be treated in that way. ] >efendant said he had only kicked it on the legs, j That lie had kicked it before and that the men at j the farm had also kicked it. She told him his c-induct was scandalous and that she would report him. lIe gesticulated freely, put his hands nearly into her face and shouted at her as she was going across the field. Defendant said that he came out oi a very awkward place with a long wagon and had to turn round in the lane. The horse pushed him into the lrushes and he held on to the bridle and simply kicked her on the left front leg. He had never been cruel to a horse, and his employer would say so, but madam came along and said he had a bad character. He said he hadn't and she replied thai lie had. The way she came and talked to him was enough to make anyone lose his temper. Mr. Morgan David, defendant's employer, said defendant had worked for him since last July. The last two or three months he had been work- ing a team regularly and witness had never seen him unkind to a horse at all. He had taken to the horses and worked them well.

The Magistrates' Clerk Has there been any ill-feeling between you before ?—In January there was. If it had not been for the constable I should have had it more. 'Defendant said that complainant came on to her and scratched her hands. She had an awful tongue and was a terror to herself and everybody else. P.C. Trigg, who was called by complainant, said he was coming down Lewis's-lane, in plain clothes, and saw defendant striking complainant against a door. She was letting drive with both hands, and witness parted them. Com- phillant was not attempting to strike de- fendant. Witness did not see the start of the bother.
