Talk to the judge
A judge, bored and frustrated by a lawyers tedious arguments, had made numerous rulings to speed the trial along. The attorney had bristled at the judges orders, and their tempers grew hot. Finally, frustrated with another repetition of arguments he had heard many times before, the judge pointed to his ear and said, "Counselor, you should be aware that at this point, what you are saying is just going in one ear and out the other."
"Your honor," replied the lawyer, "That goes without saying. What is there to prevent it?"
-Men can live without air for a few minutes, without water for a few days, without food for about two months, and without new thoughts for years on end.
A Woman Goes to Jail.
Ephraim Holmes and wife, Lula, were arrested this morning by the city marshal under a warrant sworn out by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney H. T. Harrison, charged with an assault on one Pete Burbank.
It seems that Burbank invaded the premises of the Holmes family near the city pound last night under the influence of liquor and the accused asserts that in self-defense she carved the offender with a butcher knife and pelted him with stones. To all of which she pleaded guilty before Justice Berry, who entered up a fine of one dollar which with the costs amounted to $11. In default of payment she is now in jail where 21 days at the expense of the county will cancel the debt. The innocent husband was acquitted.
Burbank is in bed and no charge has as yet been made against him.
