Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...in full settlement. The lawyer, convinced that the Society's client was truthful in denying that she had placed the claim in the hands of his clerk, paid the $5.87 to the Society, which amount was paid to a very appreciative client. A "FRAME UP" FRUSTRATED. After writing two letters to the defendant and not being favored with a reply, the Society commenced an action against the defendant in behalf of a poor inmiigrant--a Tu_rk--who, with money collected in his behalf from the employees in a factory in which he had had his hand terribly mangled, had made a deposit of $30 rent on a store, in which he had intended to eke out an existence for himself and family by selling penny candy, the possession of which defendant had failed to deliver although several months had elapsed. At the trial the defendant set up a counter claim of $30 for another month's rent, stating that the applicant had formally taken possession by installing an ice-box on May 2d, which was absolutely untrue. During the cross-examination by the Society's attorney, the defendant was caught in so many inconsistencies that the judge, turning to the defendant, told him that he lied, and awarded judgment for the plaintiff with $5 costs and dismissed the counterclaim.
