MAINTENANCE OF TWINS
YENSTON' MANS £111 ARREARS.
JUSTICES “UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING.”

At Ilminster Petty Sessions on Thursday, Joseph SHARP, dealer, of Yenston, Templecombe, was summoned by Kathleen Gladys NURSE, of Orchard Cottage, Yenston, in respect of £117 17s arrears under an order made by the Court in 1930 for the maintenance of her twin children.

Mr. E. C. K. WESTON, of Taunton, for SHARP, said that the arrears were admitted.

Applicant said SHARP paid regularly up to July 25th, 1935, since when she had received nothing. One of the children lived with her mother. She said SHARP had been in business with his brother.
SHARP said he was taken ill in August, 1935, and had been unable to do any work since. - Evidence was also given by Mrs. Mona A. BARROW, of Yenston, defendant's sister, Dora Victoria TRASK, a trained nurse, who attended SHARP, and Norman HAM, a clerk of Messrs. Rutter & Rutter, solicitors, who said that the business belonged to James SHARP, and was nothing to do with the defendant.

The Chairman told the applicant that on the evidence before them it was impossible for them to do anything. If SHARP's circumstances altered she was at liberty to come before the Bench again.
