Transcript:
Drunken Woman. Jane Owen, marine store dealer's wife, was summoned for having been drunk and disorderly on Sunday, 7th October. P.C. Thomas Jones said he saw the defendant knocking at the Wooden House door at Llanbadarn. She was drunk, and on being accosted said she had been to church. She went on and lay down by the road side. He afterwards saw her near the Piccadilly Public House surrounded by a crowd of people and making a noise with Mrs. Davies, of Antaron. He again saw her followed by a crowd of children and was throwing stones at them. Eventually he saw her in the Dinas Public House, and afterwards at Trefechan, crying because her husband had been out all night with another woman at Penparke. Defendant said she would not acknowledge the offence. Even supposing she was drunk the constable had no occasion to call her bad names. The constable denied the woman's accusation. A previous conviction in January having been proved, the Mayor said the Bench would fine her double the usual amount, 5s. and costs.
