BAD BILLE.
———◦———

    Two men named William Richards, 64 years of age, and William Oliphant Pringle, 55, who had pleaded guilty to a bestial charge at the Quarter Sessions, were sentenced by Judge Docker on Friday. His Honor, after inquiring their age, said, “Persons who act as you have, should not be allowed to associate among a civilised community. Consider yourselves lucky that you have escaped a sentence of five years’ penal servitude.” The elder, Richards, was given two years’ hard labor in Grafton Gaol, and Pringle 18 months.
