This city was thrown into an uproar today by the newest dastardly attempt of the Jewish money bund to make sport of the German courts and to bring about the collapse of a magistrate.

### Jew Levy was arrested for ### and endangering the lives ### “Aryan” children.

The judge fined him twenty marks but the Jew Levy said he didn’t have that much money, although it was learned on reliable authority that he has grown immensely wealthy at the expense of true German citizens.

“Well, what do you expect me to do?” the judge inquired with stern dignity.

“You would take my right eye if you could, I suppose,” the Jew Levy said with unsurpassed insolence such as might be expected from a representative of the Jewish money bund.

“A very good idea,” said the judge, rubbing his hands with glee. “The prisoner’s suggestion will be acted upon forthwith.”

With an admirable show of respect for speedy justice the magistrate summoned two court officers and instructed them to remove the Jew Levy’s right eye.

What was the consternation of the court when the prisoner himself removed the orb and placed it on the bench. It was glass.

The judge, for a moment thrown into a state of collapse by this turn of events, eventually recovered his composure.

“Well,” he said with a quiet smile, “since the right eye is already here before me, remove the left one instead.”

The courtroom rocked with laughter. Thus was the latest Jewish plot against Das Vaterland contraverted.
