Beds in Court House for the Use of Jurors
Walter Rambo, chairman of the board of county commissioners, stated Tuesday morning that the commissioners were preparing to place beds in the court house for the use of jurors during district court. This has always been a perplexing question for the local courts. There has never been any place to take the jury when they had to spend the night together. They have been forced to sleep in different rooms. Commissioner Rambo stated that they had purchased nice beds and coverings and that they would be placed in the large room just across the hall from the sheriff’s office, which was formerly used during the war for the exemption board. This is a large and airy room, and will make the ideal quarters. The commissioners will receive a vote of thanks from the men who have served on juries. The room will be ready for convening of the jury next week.
