While Judge Boyle was hear ing the pleas of halt a dosen men and women charged with various offenses against the peace, dignity and good mor als of the city of Butte, a man with a powerful and well keyed voice In the Jail below was demonstrating by the song he was singing that his early training had been good. With all the fervor of a revivalist at a camp meeting the notes of the grand old hymn, "Where is My Wandering Boy Tonight," which has brought many a sinner to his knees was being beautifully rendered by Ed Wingate, a piano player, who was confined in the Jail below. The notes of the clear and powerful voice penetrated the floor and could be plainly heard in the courtroom. Think ing that it was disturbing and annoying the court one of the officers suggested that he would go down to the jail and stop the singer and the song. "Never mind." said Judge Boyle, let him sing, it does not bother us and it may do him good." Sweet and Well Rendered. So sweet was the song, and so well rendered, that for at few minutes pro- I tfeedings in the court were suspended and tile judge, prisoners., court attaches and spectators lent an appre('tatlive ear.

DIDN'T KNOW LEGAL STATUS ILLITERATE WOMAN TRYING TO RECOVER PROPERTY WORTH FOUR THOUSAND. SAWYER BOUGHT IT FOUR SIXTY-THREE DOLLARS Mrs. Celia Davison Asks Restoration of Property Now Held by Attorney W. E. Carroll-Judge Clancy Dis poses of Case by Appointing H. Lowndes Maury Referee. In Judge Clancy's court an unusual case came up for trial this morning in which a woman who can neither read nor write was the plaintiff and an attorney at law was the defendant. The actors in the Judicial drama were Mrs. Celia Davison and W. H. Carroll. Mrs. Davison formerly owned a house and lot on East Park street worth $4,000. Mr. Carroll now has possession of it at the comparatively nominal cost of $63 and the costs of a sheriff's sale. Mr. Carroll has a sheriffs. deed to the prop erty executed by Sheriff Fur(y. The history of the case is an illustra tion of feminine lack of business acumen. Mrs. Davison was sued In the justice court by Mike Doherty, who had a ,hltin againist her amountuing to $45. Doherty got a judgment for that sum and costs, amounting to $63. An execution against the woman was Issued in the justice court and placed in the hands of the sheriff to serve and satisfy the judgment. The sheriff levied upon the valuable real property de scribed. Sold at Sheriff's Sale. It was advertised for sheriff's sale, and Carroll was the purchaser. He had no tified Mrs. Davison several times that the property would be bought in for the amount of the judgment, but she made no effort to pay the latter and save her real estate. After the sale was amade and the sheriff's deed executed to Carroll, she brought suit in the district court to re cover her property. This morning she was in Judge tlan cy's court attended by her three small children. She was represented by Attor ney Langford and Parr. Mr. Carroll was represented by Attorne:. Kirk. Mr. Langford got so far in the trial as to read the complaint, and then Judge Clancy brought it to a sudden 'lose by saying'that the (as' was one for a ref eree, and he anpointed Attorney II,. Lowndes Maury to act In that capacity in the case. The lawyers objected to hearing the case before a referee, but Judge Clancy was firm. Per Cord $4.75 Per Cord. Fine dry slab wood.
