A ycung domestic servant tried to
cash one or two forged checks and was
arrested in the attempt, fche said "a

too often to impress a jury no juryman
likes to be made a laughing stock but
before a verdict of "guilty" could be
given a man fell down dead in the

sure enongh, in hia pocket were found
other foiged checks similar to those she
