About two weeks ago a man giving

He finally struck a bargain with Mr. N.

receiving his money for the animal, left

During the latter part ot the last ses
sion of the Alwxander county court,
Judge Bross presiding, a petition was
filed by John E. Sowers on behalf of
Henry Taylar, the Infant son of Hiram
Taylor, aged three and a half years,
against Hiram Taylor and his stepmother,
Nancy Taylor, the petition being filed
on the grounds of alleged cruelty to the
child by the father and stepmother.
The proof showed that some four
months after the death of the child's
mother the defendant's inter-married
and that within a short time thereafter
It become a neighborhood talk that the
child was being abused by its step
mother. That the general neighborhood
talk was continued up to the time ot
presenting the petition. The proofs fur
ther showed that the stepmother was
constantly In the habit ot whipping
the child, and at times unmercifully,
and often without any apparent cause
On some occasions she would snatch
the child, when quiet, from its father,
and set it down upon the floor jn a
violent manner, sayingr to the father,
"what are you nursing that child fori"
or words to that efleet. That the child
was not permitted to drink any water,
scarcely at all, the reason being given
by her that It did not agree with it
that it had the diarrhoea. That on one
occasion the child was discovered drink
ing water out of a wash basin, and was
seized by its mother with one hand while
she beat it with the other in a most cruel
and brutal manner.
On another occasion, when she was
leaving home and the child attempted to
follow her, she went to It, struck It in
the face with her hand, causing its nose
to bleed profusely. In the language of
one of the witnesses, at least a half-pint,
when, by application ol cold water, they
suceeded in stopping the How of
blood. The mother then got a switch
and whipped the child for a considerable
length ot time.
It also appeared in the evidence that on
another occasion when it was extremely
cold, she stripped the child entirely
naked, broko the ice iu a vessel out
doors and washed the child iu the ice
water, and after baying washed it
sat It naked before the stove,
and according to her own account
the child's arms were burnt while sitting
there. But according to the testimony
of another witness, the child w hen asked
how it was done, said "mama held
my hands on the stove." The evidence
further showed that the fattier on sev
eral occasions whipped the child out of
reason, and that both of them would oc
casionally go to church, or visiting
among the neighbors, both in summer
and winter, leaving the child
alone. On a very extremely cold
day, the lather being absent,
the mother visited a neighbor and re
mained there about a half day. On com
ing into the house, site remarked that
her house was quite open, and it was so
cold she couldu'l stay there. The lady
whom she was visiting asked her what
she had done w ith the child, when she
said in reply, she had lett It at home ;
tliat she built a big fire in the stove and
left It there by Itself. The lady then
asked her why she did not bring the
child with her, and she said it was too
There was much other evidence of like
import, and no denial on the part of the
step-mother, and but little answer made
by the father, he claiming that the child
bad not been abused, so fur as he knew.
He admitted, however, upon cross-examination,
that she had sometimes
whipped it Iu bis presence harder than
he thought she had any right to have
done; and on one occasion he had threat
ened t take the child awsy-aud fife it to
the petitioner, its uncle.
The defendant went represented by.
Judge Hoflaer, of 'Pulaski county.
Judge Mulkey appeared tor the petitioner,
Judge Bros found the charges of cruelty
in the petition to be true, and ordered
that the custody of the child be taken
from the defendants. Afterwards by
mutual consent, the child was given to
