Leaving His Verdict

I REMEMBER, says Lord Biden, Mr. Justice Gould trying a case at York,

and when he had proceeded for about two hours, he observed, 'Here are

only eleven jurymen in the box, where is the twelfth?'--'Please you, my

lord,' said one of the eleven, 'he has gone away about some other

business--but he has left his verdict with me!'
