LAWYER FOR WOMAN SINGS "HOME, SWEET MM" TO
JURORS AS HIS PEIRORAT ION.
_' k (By United Press Leased Wine.)
FORT WORTH, Tex., April 7. —The unwritten law scored
a full triumph here today when a jury acquitted Mrs. Eliza
beth Brooks'of murder after Mrs. Brooks had freely'admitted
having killed Mrs. Mary llinfoi'd because the latter eliminated
her husband's affections. . -. •
The Jury deliberated lust Bight without being able to
reach a verdict, but this morning they filed into court with a.
dictum of."not guilty." Not a single Juror was accepted in
the ease unless ho declared unreservedly his belief in the un
written law. ■ --
A remarkable feature of the case came when Walter
Scott, attorney-tor Mrs. Brooks, sang "Home, Sweet Home,"
as his peroration in his plea for his client's acquittal. All the
.jurors went as the lawyer- voice rang out through the court
room in the strains of the old melody. __.
