He tried to explain this to Ray. who couldn't see where the dice would scratch the varnish very much. The upshot of It all was that both men were bitten. They bit1 each other in the back during the scrap that followed. Ray was arrested. He bit deeper than Henry did. He was also drunker. "Ah doesn't wfcnna proxicute him, Jedge," said Henry when the case wan called. "We had done made up en la frens gain. He bit me en Ah bit him." The court insisted on hearing the case, apparently ignoring Henry's statement. it seems that a lighted lamp was thrown by some one. but the court was left in the dark on this sub ject. No one knew much about It. Henry kept saying he didn't want anything done with Ray and after a while the court listened. Ray was let go with the under standing that he must behave him self anyhow.
