reputation nm^nc his neighbor* of
not being a good provider. He has
often gone away from home and left
them with nothing to eat more than
poa*ihly a few potatoes and no meat
or anvthinr to cook with the potatoes.
He admitted on the stand that he has
often cursed his wife. AMI hi* chil
dren are girla and not yet large
enough to work much. His wife went
on the stand and told about how poor
ly he has provided for her and the
children and she made the appearance
of a woman of some intelligence nnd
deserving of better treatment than he
evidently has given her. She told the
talk gut ataftad u> the rfcighbiirhood
that Law might U indicted for nag
