and was assessed a fine of $25. When
Bergersen was called to the jury box to
W sworn he feigned deafness, holdiug
his palm back of his ear like a funnel to
catch the wind. He acted like he could
not hear ijuite as well as a post while
Mr. Cathcart was examining him. The
court grew restive and asked if the attorneys
would consent to excune the juror,
which was readily granted. Bergersen
was ordered to the bat of the court
ami given the following dressing down
by Judge Humphreys:
"When you appeared as a juror you
asked to lie excused on account of deafness,
but you answered all iiuestiom
spoken in an ordinary conversational
tone. Now you pretend cot to hear. I
cannot lose sight of the fact that I have
had personal dealings with you for the
past four or five years' and I never had
any trouble in making" you hear. If a
person from across the street were to
ask you in a whisper for a bottle of
machine oil or a package of needles you
would hear all right. Y&u ore not acting
in good faith aud are unworthy to
act as a juror. I have fined you $25
for not appearing in court this morning.
I will excue you as juror for the
term. You will mow stand committed
to jail until your line Is paid."
Bergersen made a feeble effort at remonstrating,
but the court would not
hear him. It is said that Bergerseu
used this ruse to get out "of serving as
juror: that he was wjlling to pay the
?25. but being committed to jail was
more than he bargained for.
The fine of Henry Vida for failing to
answer a jury summons on Monday was
remitted except the costs of service.
