Rapid changes of temperature are hard
on the toughest constitution.
The conductor passing from the heated
inside of a trolley car to the icy temperature
of the platform—the canvasser spending an
hour or so in a heated building and then
walking against a biting wind—know the
difficulty of avoiding cold.

danger of cold from changes of temperature.

law. Yet his case has been twice 1
carried to the Supreme Court of
Georgia and twice carried to the
Supreme Court of the United
States on purely technical grounds.
It went to the Supreme Court of
the United States on the last oc
casion, it appears, on the ground
that.!. G. Rawlings is or was a
preacher and that preachers are
exempted from jury services un
der the laws of Georgia. The Con
stitution requires a man accused
of crime to lie tried by a jury of
his peers, and, by the ingenuity of
counsel, the novel construction is
attempted to lie placed upon this
old and well-defined legal term
making it synonmons in J. G.
Rawlings’ case with “preachers.”
A theory is put forward, which if
followed to its logical analysis,
would require him to lie tried by a
jury of preachers. This question
was seriously and solemnly carried
up to the highest tribunal in the
land and when it came back with
