Mr Ebsworth, who appeared for the prosecution, after stating the circumstances of the case, called the complainant, from whose evidence it appeared that on the 14th inst……….a hawker, on his way from Wolverhampton called, in company with a person named Deadman, at a beerhouse in Little Bloxwich. While there, the defendants came and threw down a piece of bacon, which in accordance with their instructions was fried. Handcox requested complainant to have a piece of bacon. Smith, however, declared complainant should not have any  and took off his coat and wished to fight complainant,……………… came up to complainant, who was standing at the head of his mule, and struck him a blow in  in the face, which knocked him down, and was then kicked by both of the defendants till he was insensible……….. Wilkinson called a witness named Roland Salmon, who fully corroborated Mr. Wilkinson's statement, and added that Foden was the first to strip—he pulling off his flannel. Smith then took off his jacket, and they had a round, which was terminated  Foden tripping up Smith, who fell to the floor. Deadman then seized a whip-stock, and struck Hancox with it. He (Deadman) then said he would fight Hancox, and would fight Smith. cross-examination witness said he was on the ground, and Hancox kicking him, but witness never interfered either to save the complainant, or assist him up………..   Henry Rowley was called, but his evidence only related to a conversation that took place between  witness and complainant, in the Swan Inn, on the night of the assault. After hearing the evidence on both sides, the Bench sentenced the defendants to pay a fine of £3 and costs, which, in both cases amounted to 17s. 6d., or in default to imprisoned for twenty-one days.

ALLEGED THEYT BY TRICK.

Before the County Magistrates at Coventry today, Barbara Winter and Elise Deadman, gipsy hawkers, of no fixed abode, were charged with stealing by means of a trick, at Folesbill on the 7th of September, 6s. in money, belonging to John Constantine Mee, landlord of the Bird-in-Hand Inn, Foleshill. Mr. B. R. Masser was for the defence, and Mr. J. F .  Bales watched the case on behalf of Mr. Mee...  Mary Ann Mee stated that on the 7th the prisoners called in the afternoon at her husband's house. They had a rug with them which they said was 16 square yards. This they asked her to buy, but she refused several times. Eventually the prisoners showed her a roll of oil-cloth saying, witness could have it for fee. Witness bought it and the prisoners ordered two more whiskeys. These they drank off quickly and were about to hurry off when witness, after examining the oil-cloth, discovered that there was not the amount there that prisoners had represented there and she stopped them. Lena Whitmore, of Foleshill said that on the day in question she saw the prisoners, who offered her some linoleum for 6s. She bought it. In reply to Mr. Masser, witness said she was perfectly satisfied with her bargain. She considered that she had got value for her money. Sergeant Booton spoke to arresting the prisoner Deadman, who at first denied that she had been to the Bird-in-Hand at all, but said it was the other woman who sold the oil-cloth. Later he arrested the prisoner Winter near Longford. When charged at the Police Station Winter said, I don't see how you can say I stole it when she paid me for it. She added that she was very sorry, as it was the first time in her life she had done such a thing. Deadman when charged said I can't think what made her do it. In reply to Mr. Masser witness said that although the prisoners had been hawking in the neighbour hood for a number of years, there had been no complaints against them. He added that both women, although not drunk, were  under the influence of drink. For the defence, Mr. Masser said the Bench must be satisfied that there had been a distinct false pretence made. He contended that there was no such false pretence and therefore there was no case against the prisoners. Evidence was given that the women had never bean in trouble before. The Chairman said the Bench were of the opinion that there had been a false pretence, but taking into consideration their previous good character and also the fact that if a conviction were registered against them it would effectually stop them following their trade as licensed hawkers, they had decided simply to bind both the accused over to come up for judgment when called upon.

 FARMER'S BID TO DETAIN RUG-SELLER EVIDENCE ENDS IN FRAUD CHARGES Evidence was concluded yesterday in the rugs fraud charges at Elgin Sheriff Court after two of the five accused had gone into the witness-box. The summing-up will take place to-day, when it is expected the case will conclude. Five men—Patrick Lee, alias R. Gray; Thomas Flannigan, alias John Stewart; Robert Allan, Peter Hutchison, and Roy Deadman, alias James Knight—are charged with fraudulent sales of carpets. ASKED FOR £60. How he tried to detain a man who was attempting to sell what he described as pure Persian carpets and rugs was told by William John Watt, farmer, Dundurcas, Rothes, when the third day's hearing began yesterday said that when he arrived home in the evening there was a man in the house trying to sell goods. The man said to him whenever he entered the door, Now, Mr Watt, it must be a quick deal, as I must be away. I tried my best to keep things going, as he seemed very agitated. He asked me for £60 for the carpets and rugs which he had in the house, and that moment I heard a sharp knock at the door. I said, ' There is someone at the door.' I was pleased to have something to say. It was not easy to keep up the conversation under the circumstances. The man said, ' That will be my mate,' and went to the door. When it was opened a constable was standing there. The  constable said, ' Do you want me?' I said ' Yes.' At this point the man made a bolt, with his head down, past the policeman, who ran after him and caught him. Richard Munro, antique dealer, Elgin, valued the rugs at 20s, and the carpets at about £6 each. They were well sold at £180, he said. POLICE EVIDENCE. Police-Sergeant William Fraser, Inverurie, said that inquiries were being made with regard to frauds, and that several men were wanted for identification. He went to a camping ground and found Robert Allan and David Hutchison, father of accused, Peter Hutchison. He said that Mrs Watt identified Robert Allan and later Flannigan and Lee. Allan had in his possession £60 3s l0d, and Flannigan £32. Inspector W. Stuart, Elgin, said that with Constable Fulton he went to Inverurie, where he charged accused. Flannigan said,'ld not deny it. Sergeant David May, C.I.D., New Scotland Yard, London, and Detective-Sergeant John MacCalman, C.I.D., Glasgow, said they had made investigations, and found that there were no firms known as Morley & Moore and Andres & Co., Ltd. This concluded the case for the Crown. MONEY FOR WREATH. That Robert Allan, one of the accused, had been at his house on Tuesday, February 18, was the evidence given by Henry M'Call, labourer, Westgate Hill Terrace Newcastle, the first witness for the defence! M'Call said that Allan had stayed at his home since November 1935 until October 1936. On February 18 M'Call asked Allan for a loan of 10s to pay for a wreath. He got the 10s from Allan, who also paid his weekly rent of 5s. Peter Hutchison, one of the accused, was described as being 22 years old and the son of a hawker. When were you 22?—I  do not know. Do you not know your birthday? —No. I think it is some time in July. Hutchison said that he went to Dundurcas in his father's car, and with his father's goods. Deadman was just accompanying  him. He brought two carpets and six rugs into the house, but no price was mentioned. He described the rugs as Oriental goods, which he valued at £16. When the constable called at the door he bolted. Why he went out it was because he had no pedlar's license. Roy Deadman, the only other  accused to go into the witness-box, said he had no interest in Hutchison's deal. When the police came on the scene  he ran away because he was not very brave with these fellows. If there was any trouble he was not going to be involved in it..........................

NATURAL LIFE.
I learned more of the natural life during those years on this large farm than from all the books i have read dealing with English bird and animal life. At that time (1870-1860) several well-known families of gipsies (the Lees, the Deadmans and Smiths) annually visited Binn's Farm and others, and they were readily granted permission by the farmers to place their caravans on the verge of the farms. They were strictly honest, and never abused the privileges granted them. i often sat with them round the great stockpot (over the fire of wood) from which appetising odours emanated, watching the men peg and basket making, and mending pots and pans. How vividly the delight of evil doing in our youth lingers in our minds! At the age of nine or ten i have clear recollections of committing the grave crime of fishing in Stowe Pool, with a ha'penny line and hook (and no rod), and oh the pride of landing a halfpounder roach or perch, and thrilling excitement when our look out warned us of the approach of Old Hurst (the water keeper), and our rapid flight with our ill-gotten gains, safe in our dinner bags………….

The coffin was almost hidden by a profusion of flowers, and wreaths also adorned the radiators and headlamps of the score or so cars which contained the relatives and friends of one who had returned to his native heath for the last time. The mourners included Mr. Calladine sons and daughters, who, following their father’s late example, travel the country In their caravans trading their wares in town and village. There were also many other relatives, one of whom is Mr. William Calladine the late Mr. Jarvis Calladine’s brother, better known amongst his fellow van dwellers as ‘‘The Man with the Brushes,” or just Brush.” Most, of the mourners rode in their own cars, while few followed in traveller's van, mourners included Mr. Jarvis Calladine, Mr. Charles Calladine.

THE GIPSY MIND . —A plea'for the Sheriff to take into consideration the gipsy mind was put forward , by an agent at Stirling Sheriff Court yesterday when he appeared on behalf of Roy Deadman ( 52 ) , general dealer, residing in a caravan at Raploch Farm , Raploch Road, Stirling……………

HAWKER JAILED BOUGHT STOLEN CLOTH. An illiterate hawker, who was told by Sheriff Burn-Murdoch at Stirling on Thursday that you were clever enough to know that dealing in cloth in these days of coupons is becoming very nearly a ‘black market,’ for which very severe penalties have recently been imposed,” was sent to prison for three months for resetting 98 yards of stolen cloth and 322 yards of cloth lining. Accused was  Roy Deadman (52 ), general dealer, residing in a caravan at Raploch Farm, Stirling, and he admitted a previous conviction for fraud and attempted fraud. The fiscal explained that the cloth had been stolen by a Glasgow lorry driver, now serving a sentence of one year for theft. The cloth was valued at £58. and accused bought it for £ll. All but £lO or £l5 worth of the material stolen had been recovered. Mr Donald C. Orr, solicitor, Hamilton, said that Deadman was one of those people whose families had been engaged in dealing for generations. Their lives were spent buying cheap and selling dear. It was difficult, unless one had studied Borrow, to realise the mind of that sort of gipsy class. He had had them as clients for over thirty years, and he thought he knew them. He had pleaded for them over the length and breadth of Scotland, but had ceased to do that unless in special cases. It was because he thought there was a chance of saving accused that he had left the seclusion of his office to make a personal plea for Deadman.

Old Staffordshire Characters J. W. JACKSON (Continued). If we look into the humbler spheres of life we shall find many  interesting characters well worthy of mention. When a boy (seventy years ago) I lived in the country and I well recollect how I looked forward with interest to the anuall visit of the gipsies, who camped near my home for a couple of months at a time. Three families, the Lee's, Smith's and Deadman's were regular visitors, but it is the first named I knew best. Gipsy Lee was a splendid specimen of the true Romany—a little over the average height, broad shouldered, deep-chested, strongly built, black - haired, keen - eyed, with deep, broad brow, and a chin which betokened firmness and determination, he was indeed a striking character. He had a very attractive manner, a genial smile, and even temper. I well remember the farmer who gave him permission to stand his van on the wide grime verge, saying to another farmer that he had always found him a thoroughly honest man, and that his word was as good as his bond. Lee was welcombd by all the farmers in the neighbourhood including those from the members of the Congregational Church and the Sunday School.

 200 RELATIVES AT BURIAL OF TWO GIPSIES When two well - known gipsies were buried in Derby this week, more than 200 relatives from all parts of the country came to the funerals. Twelve cars made two journeys to take the mourners to each funeral. Robert Calladine was living at Newark when he died, but his body was brought to Derby to be buried in Nottingham-road Cemetery yesterday, with his wife, who died 17 years ago.  Nearly 150 people were at the funeral, and among them were 22 nephews and 26 nieces. The second gipsy, George Deadman (66), lived on ground adjoining the filling station, Alfreton-road, Breadsall. There were nearly 120 relatives at his funeral on Tuesday. He leaves a widow, two daughters and fifteen grandchildren. 

LIGHTED CANDLES The old gipsy custom of watching over the bodies with lighted candles from the time of death until burial was observed. The last gipsy funeral to take place in Derby was nearly 12 months ago, when Mr. Deadman's son was killed by a falling tree at Louth, and his body was brought back to Derby for burial.
