Apostle Joseph F. Smith strikes his neighbor-s head -three times with my cane- for insulting him and letting his livestock trespass on Smith-s property. He voluntarily pleads guilty to assault and battery to Mormon justice of the peace. On Christmas night Smith had dreamed of using his cane repeatedly on opponent-s head, -intending to kill him, but was partially prevented from striking him with full force by my wives.-
