Herriman Saturday: April 7 1910
April 7 1910 -- Mrs. Molly Magarigle is suing her neighbouring duplex resident. Seems the duplex has a small barn out back, divided so each tenant has their own half. Mrs. Magarigle keeps a flock of chickens in her section while the neighbour uses his half as a garage for his automobile.
The automobile makes quite a racket causing a major fuss among the peace-loving chickens. Mrs. Magarigle claims that this disturbance of the peace is responsible for 56 out of 60 unhatched chicken eggs in her last brood, plus adds extra damages to cover setting hens now afflicted with a nervous condition, making them useless for nature's purpose.
