The law in China

Back in one of the old Chinese dynasties, each village had gongs that would be rung every two hours ~ at 8am once, 10am twice, noon thrice, 2pm four times, etc.

The lawyers of the day would stretch out the trials as much they could to make more money but the judges became extremely bored with the status quo and went to the Emperor, getting a proclamation that all trials would have to be concluded at 2pm.

Thereafter, all trials ended with a four-gong conclusion.
