The Light That Lies (Classic Reprint)
Sampson had been uncommonly successful in evading jury service. By some hook or crook he always had managed to 'get off,' and he had begun to regard his trips down to General or Special Sessions - coming with monotonous regularity about three times a year - as interruptions instead of annoyances. Wise men advised him to serve and get it over with for the time being, but he had been so steadfastly resourceful in confining his jury service to brief and uneventful 'appearances,' and to occasional examinations as to his fitness to serve as a juror, that he preferred to trust to his smartness rather than to their wisdom. Others suggested that he get on the 'sheriff's jury,' a quaintly distinguished method of serving the commonwealth in that the members perform their duty as citizens in such a luxurious and expensive way that they never appear in the newspapers as 'twelve good men and true' but as contributors to somewhat compulsory festivities in which justice is done to the inner man alone. But Sampson, though rich, abhored the sheriff's Jury.
