Alleged Horse Thief


Recommended Posts

Many years ago, an alleged horse thief was brought up for trial in a rough and tumble Western frontier town.

Before the proceedings began, the judge gave the usual instructions to the jury.

“Ladies and gentleman, this here is a democratic country, and this feller is supposed to get a fair trial.

You’ll have to listen to the testimony and decide the verdict, guilty of not guilty.

But remember one thing. There’s somebody bigger’n you or me.

There’s a Divine Justice, above and beyond this court-room, an Eternal Providence lookin’ down here,

and He ain’t gonna be took in by no lyin’ hoss thief.â€
