Emma HEWITSON said that the defendant followed her home, and just as
she got inside the door he put his foot against it so that she could not close
it. Witness told him to go away but he stood there about ten minutes, and she
called her oldest girl to bring a poker and go for a policeman. He then let go
of the door and broke two of the kitchen windows by putting his fist through
the panes. After he ran away as hard as he could go.
Joseph HEWITSON proved the damage done, which amounted to 5s.
The defendant was ordered to pay 21s, fine, costs, and damages, the
