Frier returned Home but the afternoon was so far Swient that was Able to get in Only one ton of his Hay leaving the other three tons out to take the Chance of the weather. He and his wife spent the evening in discussing what course it was Best to pursue with regard to Tho complaint against or. Guttridge but Aoi withstanding his wife was in favor of .s going the morning and entering the complaint since mrs. Guttridge had consented yet or. Frier was undecided. To did mat like to do it or. Guttridge was a neighbor and it was an unpleasant . But when arose the morning looked out and beheld his three tons of Hay drenched with a heavy rain and a Prospect of a continued storm was not Long in making up his mind. Here said i spent a Good part of the Day yesterday in looking after Guttridge a family to keep them from starving and now by tills Means i be nigh about As Good As lost three tons of Hay. I Don t think it s my duty to put up with it any longer accordingly As soon As breakfast was Over or. Frier was out spattering along in the mud and rain with his old great coat thrown Over his oulds. A the sleeves flapping loosely Down by his Side and his drooping hat awry wending his Way to Couri to appear before the grand jury. Well or. Frier what do i of want asked the Foreman As the complainant entered the room. I come to complain of Jerry Guttridge to the grand jury replied or. Frier taking off his hat. And shaking the rain from off it. Vohy what has Jerry Guttridge done said the Foreman. I did t think to had life enough to do any thing Worth complaining of to the grand jury it s because Jasti to got life enough to do any thing said or. Frier thai i be come to complain of him. Tho fact is or. Foreman to s a Lazy Idle fellow and wont work nor provide Nihin for his family to eat and they be been half starving this Long Lime and the neighbors have had to keep sending in something All the time to keep pm alive but said the Foreman Jerry s a peaceable sort of a Chap or.

And when i told him calmly i did t think to was in Tho Way of Hia a duty hew into a passion and called me an old miserable dirty meddling Vagabond Anda scoundrel and a scape Gallows and an infer Nal Small Jii Ece of a Man abominable exclaimed one of the jury who Ever heard of such outrageous conduct what a vile blasphemous wretch Quot exclaimed another i should t a wondered if d fell dead on the spot the Foreman asked or. Frier if Jerry had us Cal Rhein very words exactly them word., every one on pm said or. Frier. Well said the Foj Oman then there s no Niobe to to said. Jerry certainly deserves to be indicted if any body in the world Ever did accordingly like a Nodi Cimon was drawn up a warrant was issued the next Day Jerry was brought before the court to answer la the charges preferred against him. Mrs. Sally tii Ridge and Nal Frier were Sun noned As wit Nesses. When the honorable court was ready to Hoar the Case the clerk called Jerry Guttridge and bade Hearken to an indictment found against him by the grand inquest for the dist Riei of Maine now silting Ai Saco in the following Viz we present Jerry Guttridge for an Idle person and not providing for .s family and giving reproachful language to or Nat Frier when reproved him for idleness a i iry pm triage what say you to this Iudici intent arc you guilty thereof or not guilty not guilty said Jerry and Here s my will can Tell you the same any Day. Sally Haven t 1 always provided for my family a Why , said mrs. i Don t know but you have As Well ask Stop said the judge kicking Down Over the lops of his spectacles at the , Stop mrs. Gutridge you must not answer questions Lill you have been sworn i who court then directed the Clork to swear the , Whei upon to called Nat Frier and Sully Gutridge to Stop Forward and hold u their right . Or. Frior advanced with a ready honest air and held up his hand. Mrs. T Lutridge lingered a Limilo behind but when at last she faltered along with feeble i and hesitating Siep and hold up her thin i trembling hand and raised up her Palo Blue a Oyes half swimming in tears toward the court and exhibit of her care worn , which though Sunburst were Pule and sickly the judge had in his own mind Moro than hair decided Tho Case against Jorry. Tho witnesses having been sworn mrs. Guttri Govas called to the stand. Now mrs. Guttridge said the judge you Are not obliged to testify against your husband any thing More than you choose your Tesini Mony must be voluntary. The court will ask you questions touching Tho Case and you can answer them or not As you May think Best. And in the first place i will ask you the incr your husband neglects to provide for the necessary wants of his family and whether Vou do or do not have comfortable food for yourself and children Well to go pretty hungry a Good Deal of the time said mrs. Gutridge trembling but f Don t know but or. Gutridge does the Best to can about it. There dont seem to any victuals that can get a Good Deal of Tho time Well is or is not in the habit of spending his time idly when might be at work and earning something for his Emily to live upon Why As to that replied the witness or. Guttridge Don t work much but i Don t know As can help it it does t seem to be his Natur to work. Somehow to Don t seem to be made like other folks for if tries Ever so much to can t never work but a few minutes at a time the Natur Don t Serai to be in him Well said said the judge casting a dignified and judicial glance at the culprit who stood with Mouth wide open and eyes fixed on the court with an i tenseness that shewed began to take some interest in the matter Well Well perhaps the court will be Able to put the nature in him mrs. Guttridge was directed to step aside and or. Nat Frier was called to the his testimony was very much to the Point Clear and conclusive. But As the Reader is already in Possession of the substance of it it is unnecessary to recapitulate it. Suffice it to say that when was called upon to repeat the reproachful language which Jerry had bestowed upon the witness there was much shuddering and an awful rolling of eyes throughout the court room. Even the prisoner a fact kindled up almost to a Blaze and thick drops of sweat were seen to Start from his forehead. The judge to be sure retained a dignified self Possession and setting Back in his chair said it was not necessary to question the witness any further the Case was clearly made out Jerry Gutridge was guilty of the charges preferred against him. The court out of delicacy towards the feelings of his wife refrained from pronouncing sentence until she had retired which she did on an intimation Beli Given her that the Casa was closed and shelf old rot Uwi Home. Jerry was then called and ordered to Heathen to Kis sentence As Tho court had recorded it. Jerry stood up and faced the court with fixed eyes and gaping Mouth and the clerk repeated As follows Jerry Guttridge you have been found guilty of being an Idle and Lazy person and not providing for your family and giving reproachful language to or. Nat Frier when reproved you for your idleness the court orders that you receive Twenty smart with the cat of nine tails upon your naked Back and that this sentence be executed forthwith by the constables at die whipping Post in the Yard adjoining the court House Jerry dropped his head and his face assumed divers , sometimes red and sometimes Sha. Ding upon the Blue. He tried to glance round upon the assembled multitude but his look was very sheepish and unable to stand the gaze of Tho hundreds of eyes that were fixed upon him settled Back on the Bench leaned his head on his hand and looked steadily upon the floor. The constables having been directed by the court to proceed forthwith to execute Tho sentence they led him out into the Yard put his arms around Tho whipping Post and tied his hands together. He submitted without resistance but when they commenced tying his hands round Tho Post began to cry and beg and Promise better fashions if they would Only let him go this time. But Tho constables told him it was too late now the sentence of the court had been passed and Tho punishment must be inflicted. The whole throng of spectators had issued from Tho court House and stood round in a Large ring to see the sentence enforced. The judge himself had stepped to a Side window which commanded a View of the Yard and stood peering solemnly through his spectacles to see that Tho ceremony was duly performed. All things being in readiness Tho stoutest Constable took the cat of nine tails and Laid the blows heavily across the Back of the victim. Nearly every blow brought blood and As they successively fell Jerry jumped and screamed so that to might have been heard Well nigh a mile. Whon the 20 blows were counted and Lony was ended to was loosed from his sent and told that might go. He a Monts with a sullen and subdued air and Quot to out stepping to pay his respects to court or even to bid any one Good Bye to straightened for Home As fast As could go. Mrs. Guttridge met him at Tho door with a kind and piteous look and a sked him if they had hurl him. He made no reply but pushed along into the House. There to found the table set and Well supplied for dinner for mrs. Guttridge partly through the ,s.of or. Frior and partly from her own , had contrived to pick up something that served to make quite a comfortable meal. Jerry ate his dinner in silence but his wife thought to manifested More tenderness and selfishness than she had known him to exhibit for years for instead of appropriating Tho most and Tho .St of the food to himself to several times placed fair proper Tionson it upon Tho plates of Bis wife Midea of his cub Dick
