"I believe." Mrs. Stetson said, "that

JUDGE SAYS THREAT LIES
IN 'I'LL GET YOUR GOAT'
Magistrate Holds the Defendant
Pending Higher Decision
CHICAGO, Dec. 30.—1s "I'll get your
goat" a threat, as contemplated under
Municipal Judge Beltler held that it
might bo so construed, but ho added
the following restriction!
"It would depend entirely on the
subject matter of Immediately previous
conversation and the apparent state of
mind of the goat-getter."
John J. Q. Dykes, a rubber goods
manufacturer, asked Judge Beltler to
stand between him and John 13. Corns,,
head of a realty company,' who, lie
Charged, had threatened him. The men
are brothers-in-law. Dykes averred
that Corns had threatened to "knock
his block off.' Later It was *nut,ually
agreed that the specific promise of
Corns was, "I'll get your goat."
"I've never read it In my Shake
speare," confessed Judge Beitler in his
decision, "but men who have demon
strated in this court room that they
were experts in 'modern English as she
Is spoke' have made me familiar with
it. Pending the decision of the courts
on the actual physical process of 'get
ting one's goat, I think I will have to
hold it a threat."
