suit of Mrs. Eva L. Schenk against
Samuel Schenk, wealthy Los Angeles
lumberman, brought out some inter
esting testimony as to dealing in
Mrs. Schenk, in her suit, named
Mrs. Abbie LeLonde Morgan, the wife
of William Morgan of Buffalo. Mrs.
Morgan is one of the social leaders
Mrs. Jessie C. Ra'nkin, of this city,
was called by Mrs., Schenk to proye
her charges about Schenk and Mrs.
"Mr. Schenk and Mrs. Morgan ntet
in my apartment in December, 1909,"
said Mrs. Rankin. "They sat up until
late that night in my front parlor
discussing a business deal In real es
tate. '-'I got so sleeply that I decided
to "go to bed. I drew the. curtains and
left Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Schenk in
the parlor. They still were talking
about real estate.
"They came to the breakfast table'
together the next morning."
"Were they still talking about real
estate?" asked Supreme Court Jus
tice Giegrich gravely.
Mrs. Rankin, smiled.
"That's what I asked them, too,"
she explained. "And Mr. Schenk told
me that most of the details had been
arranged satisfactorily, but that
- there, still remained a few things to
be looked after."
"Well," said. Justice Giegrich, sol
emnly, "I do not ahem I do not
think there is,any need of calling any
more witnesses in this case. I shall
take the case under advisement."
And so the question of how long it
reasonably may take a man and
woman, unmarried, to decide a real
estate deal in someone else's front
parlor at night will be legally decided
after due. deUberation.- - -
