THE "kangaroo court" conducted, by.
prisoners in the County Jail dealt
severely with O. H. Strubrud, arrested
yesterday by Deputy Constable Druhot
on a charge of usury. Strubrud was in
jail about two hours for accepting $5
a month interest on a loan of $50.
"You oan't put me in jail for this,"
he protested weakly while be was be
ing searched in the jail office.
"Well, we'll make a try at it, any
way," responded Deputy Sheriff Glen
"Don't take my money, please don't,"
pleaded Strubrud. when the deputy
iished a purse out of one pocket.
Olennon grinned and put it back.
"All right, keep it, then. The other
boys may want some of it," he said.
Strubrud didn't know what that meant,
fur he had never heard of a kangaroo
He was hustled down the hallway
and ushered into a corridor where 30
or 40 prisoners were sitting around.
One of the huskiest of the inmates
seized the newcomer and conducted him
to a. position at one end of the corridor.
The "judge" mounted a stool and asked
the new prisoner his name.
"What are you doing in here?" de
manded the court sternly.
"He's a shylock," some one whispered.
The judge's brow darkened. Strubrud
glanced around the circle of- prisoners
and looked otttside for help. He saw
none. Chief Jailer George Hurlburt was
watching the performance and grinning.
";ot any money?" asked the judge.
"Well, you're fined a dollar and a half
for getting caught. Now cough tip."
"I haven't got it, honest I haven't,"
"Search him," commanded the court.
Two prisoners seized Strubrud and a
third went through his pockets. One
found a purse with a quantity of silver.
"What's this?" demanded the court.
"You Had to me. You're fined a dollar
and a half mora for lying."
The judge extracted $: (which will be
used to buy tobacco for the corridor)
and handed back the pocketbook.
Strubrud rushed to the side of the
corridor and shoved the purse through
the bars to Mr. Hurlburt. Then he
plunpred his hand into another pocket
and brought forth another purse which
gave forth the peculiar metallic "clink"
of- gold as he handled it. This also he
gave to the chief jailer.
"You take it," he said. "Take care of
it for me. They'll get it, sure, if you
don't. I want to see my lawyer."
Mr. Hurlburt pocketed the two purses
and walked away. Then Strubrud had
You re a deputy, aln t you"'
"No, I'm not a deputy," grinned the
"Whadja want to give him your
money for?" demanded another prisoner.
He only a trusty. Now your kale's
gone for sure."
Strubrud xva.3 in despair. He sat
down to think It over, but was not al
lowed to remain long. The "Sheriff"
of the kangaroo court seized him again
and once more he faced the judge.
"Say. we can't help it -if they shove
you in here," said the judge. "But if
you stay here you gotta be , decent.
You're sentenced to take a bath, see?"
Two huskies then dragged the pro
testing Strubrud to the big tank where
the prisoners take their baths. In spite
of his objections they stripped him.
threw htm into the water and "stirred
him around" until they were tired.
About the time he got dressed and was
wondering what would happen next his
sttorney came and furnished bail. Stru
brud was then released to appear before
a. District Judge today.

Jenkins singe delightfully, and his
humor is spontaneous and mirth-provoking.
"This Way Out" is the title of the
sketch, a dramatic episode by Percival
Knight, which has to do with a con
flict between a ' blackmailing yeggman
and a reformed convict. The lines are
good and the situations thrilling. Dr.
Martin Sorners and William S.' Gill
capably play the two roles.
