      WIFE DESERTION - Charles Whitton, engineer who was aprehended on liberation from Calton Jail, Edinburgh on Monday morning was brought before Hon Sheriff Gray at Cupar later in the day, and charged with having, between 20th September 1901 and 20th January 1902, deserted his wife and 3 children, whereby they became chargeable to the parish of Leslie. Mr J E Grosset, solicitor Cupar, who prosecuted on behalf of the Parish Council, stated that in point of fact the accused had not maintained his wife and family since the year 1893 and since that date up to now, they had been maintained at the cost of the Leslie Parochial Board at a cost of at least £120: and he thought that, as a warning to others, exempletary punishment should be inflicted. The Sheriff stated that accused was liable to a penalty of £10 or 60 days. He passed sentence of £30, or 30 days imprisonment.
