Its Equivalent


The prisoner had been before the court so many times for vagrancy that the judge concluded to give him a dose he wouldn't forget.

"So," he said sternly as he looked down on the chronic, "you are here again?"

"Yes, yeronner," replied the prisoner humbly.

"Same old charge, I suppose?"

"Yes, yeronner."

"All right. I'll just fine you $100 and send you down."

The prisoner threw up his hands like a drowning man. "Geerusalem, yeronner!" he exclaimed. "Why don't you give me a life sentence and be done with it?" — Detroit Free Press.
