Page 227 - It is the duty of the court and its officers to provide for the comfort of jurors. Displaying special concern for their comfort and volunteering to ask favors for them, while they are present — such as frequent motions to adjourn trials, or take a recess, solely on the ground of the jury's fatigue, or hunger, and uncomfortableness of their seats, or the court room, and the like — should be avoided.
Page 227 - Casual and slight services should be rendered without charge by one attorney to another in his personal cause; but when the service goes beyond this, an attorney may be charged as other clients. Ordinary advice and services to the family of a deceased attorney should be rendered without charge in most instances; and where the circumstances make it proper to charge, the fees should generally be less than in cases of other clients.
