This is a story about Old Judge Priest and one of his many experiences with the more human side of every day events that possibly most of us pass by too quickly as we hurry through our lives. Irvin S. Cobb conceived these stories, as he said in his own words, to acquaint the world with the fact that his fellow Kentuckians were just plain folk whom we might find in Iowa, or Indiana or any state in this great union. Herewith, Parley Baer as Old Judge Priest a man with as big feeling of compassion for his fellow man as the girth around his stomach.
