clear and conclusive evidence was drawn out of a Yorkshireman

"Did you
see the defendant throw the stone?" "I saw a stone, and I'ze pretty sure

the defendant throwed it." "Was it a large stone?" "I should say it wur a

largeish stone." "What was its size?" "I should say a sizeable stone."

"Can't you answer definitely how big it was?" "I should say it wur a stone

of some bigness." "Can't you give the jury some idea of the stone?" "Why,

as near as I recollect, it wur something of a stone." "Can't you compare it

to some other object?" "Why, if I wur to compare it, so as to give some

notion of the stone, I should say it wur as large as a lump of chalk!"
