    ...hardly of interest...

    "In the police court business is brisk in the extreme, but the cases, if reported in detail, would hardly be of interest to outside readers ; but the judicial duties of this place are daily increasing, and there are at the present time five inmates at the lock-up incarcerated on charges ranging from felony to petty larceny.
    May 1,1871."

    This is just not true! (Don't you hate it when they do that?)

    My wealthy ancestors left a paper trail a mile long, the poor ones are virtually invisible.
