In the case of Louis Schmolls, recently sentenced to two years for shooting at his wife, the strong point in his favor was that the bullet could not be found, the defence being that the pistol was not loaded. His wife has now found the bullet embedded in a featherbed. It was a Terry rifle bullet, and Schmolls’ son, who is in the Invercargill Cadets, is armed with a carbine of that description.
