      NEIGHBOURS IN COURT.
      Frederick George Lock proceeded
      against Robert Parkinson for using in-
      sultint words to him on October 15 at
      Mulgoa— road, Liverpool. Frederick G.
      Lock stated that he was coming home,
      from church about 1.45 p.m. Parkinson
      was leaning over his front gate and he
      said, to; witness, 'You - — - — — , you
      ? -. ' It was not the first time defend-
      ant had insulted witness. Mr. Passmore:
      Were you alone coming from church?
      'Witness: Yes, I was! Mr. Passmore:
      Well, you have no witness then. You do
      not recognise Parkinson as a. potential
      business rival, ? do you? Lock: I don't
      know the meaning of the words. Mr.
      Passmore: Have you over slung off at my
      client. Lock: I have not spoken to the
      man for 12 months and never attempted
      to block him from coming to the place
      adjoining mine, I am not a vindictive or
      quarrelsome man, and deny making light
      of a death in Parkinson's family. Had
      complained of tho conduct of defendant
      to Sergeant Kelly and Constable Cook.
      Robert Parkinson, a textileworker at the
      Challenge. Woollen Mills for the past five
      years, stated that he admitted calling
      Lock an obnoxious b ? ?.' Lock had
      annoyed him; that's why he said it.
      Positively denied using tho words. Mr.
      Clegg: Any questions? Lock: After that,
      it's not worth while. Defendant's -wife,
      Annie Parkinson, gave evidence that at
      the time stated- her husband was with
      her in the kitchen. She did not hear him
      use any, words to Mr. Lock. Mr. Clegg
      dismissed the case.

      AN AUSTRALIAN SOLDIER.
      Corporal Harry Parkinson, writing to
      his brother, Mr. Robert Parkinson, of Mul-
      goa-road, Liverpool, says: "I have just
      come back to one of our battalions after
      recovering from my wounds. I have suf-
      fered awful pain with my wounds. I am
      not right yet, but think I will be soon. I
      had 82 wounds in my legs, back and arms,
      but I did more damage to the Germans
      than they did to me. One night I killed
      five with a bomb. I was in the great bat-
      tle of Loos, and it was hell on earth, I can
      tell you. One day a German shouted out
      he had a wife in Sheffield, England. I
      roared back she would be a widow if he
      did not bob his nut down. The Austra-
      lians are doing well; but, Bob, there are
      no fighters like the British Tommies. I
      suppose I shall have to go back soon, but
      it won't be this year. I may go early in
      the New Year if they send me, and will go
      with a good heart and do my best. I was
      in Ypres when I got hurt, and had three
      months in France and three in Belgium.
      It was murder at Ypres, I can tell you.
      When I was at Kent in hospital I met
      some of the Australians, and they made a
      lot of me. I never had a better reception
      in all my life than what they gave me."
      Corporal Harry Parkinson is an Austra-
      lian, and was born and reared in Armidale,
      N.S.W. He is a married man with two
      children.

      IN A BAYONET CHARGE.
      Lance-Corporal Harry Parkinson, who
      has been fighting In France, writes to his
      brother. Mr. Robert Parkinson, of Liver
      pool: — 'I have been wounded for the
      fourth time. I got a bomb wound In my
      right thigh and leg. Our company went
      over to take some German trenches with
      the bayonet, but I did not get to the
      trenches, I was knocked out before I
      knew where I was, being laid out In No
      Man's Land. I was lost and did not know
      my way back, so I started crawling the
      best way I could. I got into a trench,
      which I soon found out was a German sap.
      and you can bet I was soon out and crawl-
      ing again. At last I heard some English
      voices, and I made for them and was soon
      safe. I was never in such a hot place. A
      big German bobbed up from a trench and
      called out, 'r vos haf a vife and two
      children in Birmingham!' I replied, 'If yer
      don't hob your bally nut down she'll be a
      widow, quick and lively.' ' On the third
      occasion when Parkinson was wounded he
      had no less than 32 wounds, and the hos-
      pital authorities considered Parkinson a
      'total wreck,' but he recovered and again
      took his place in the firing-line. 'The last
      time.' 'he says. 'I was hit on the right
      thigh with a bomb, and It made an awful
      wound. I can get my fist right Into It. We
      were on the right of the Australians when
      in the trenches, and we were near Pozieres
      when they took it. My word, they have
      done well and made a big name for them
      selves.'
