Squire Defends Man Before Another Justice When David Stauffer, of Shoop's • 'hurch. was haled before Squire J. K. Henry, of Royalton, yesterday, to de fend an action instituted by his brother-in-law he was accompanied by Squire George W. Rodfong. of Middle lown. " "Evening, Judge," said the Middle town justice to his colleage. "What do you mean ny arresting this man? He's innocent and I'm going to see he gets justice," he added smilingly. The case against Stauffer was in stituted by his sister's husband. John Herr, of Conewago township, who wanted Stauffer to pay $54 which he claimed was due his wife for services rendered her brother. Throughout the hearing Squire Rod fong cross-examined witnesses and otherwise fulfilled the functions of an alert attorney for the defense. When all the evidence was in the Middle town justice made a stirring plea in behalf of the defendant. That his plea touched the sympa thies of his colleague is evident, for Stauffer was not only discharged, but the costs were placed upon the prose cutor. RTEKLTON CHURCHES Trinity Episcopal—The Rev.
