The Judge saw the useiessness
of sending him to Jail. That

Judge Arntson saw there was
hope for reformation and asked
what he wanted to do. He want
ed to quit it all, to stay at home,
to be a man.
And he got the chance.
His name does not appear on
the books but it does appear on a
little pledge written by Judge
Arntson to abstain (from all in
toxicating liquors hereafter. The
pledge is in the Judge's desk and
husband and wife went out of the
office as happy as they were on
their wedding day..
"And I believe he will keep the
pledge and will make good," said
Judge Arntson this afternoon.
