In the Debts Recovery Court, Cupar, on Thursday, William Millar, brickmaker, Logic Street, Lochee, sued Messrs Graham Yooll & Son, Pittenweem, for £44 3s 11d, being the balance of an account for work done at the brick and tile work Pittenweem, and for stock of goods taken possession of by the defenders. Payment was refused on the ground that the work charged for had not been done. After hearing the evidence for the pursuer, Sheriff Bell did not think it was necessary to call any for the defence. In his opinion, the case had been made out all, and he, therefore, granted absolvitor, allowing the defenders £7 3s 2d expenses.
