Rabbit trapper’s violent temper
A rabbit trapper from a country district pleaded guilty - before Sheriff Macmaster Campbell on Monday - to a charge of having on August 13, in his own house, assaulted his wife and son by striking them with a walking stick.
He had had a disagreement with his wife about his tea, and afterwards struck her with the stick, while his son who was giving no provocation whatever, was also struck.
