Old Jackson waa a very peculiar man.
ilu was hotter educated lhan musl of
the men of hit vocation, aud bl. was a
silent, uiinbiriisne peisonalily. Often
he would sit fox hours in I group
around a bar room stove wheu his mind
seemed far »Va) ami he never uttered
a word or joined iu the conversation
until he was appealed to, when having
replied In monosyllables he quickly
ri-lup.-i'il iuto silence. lie drank lillle,
swore nul even at a refractory mule,
and gambled uot at all, but he read a
great deal. I do not know wbere or
how I got tbe impression into my bead,
but I always looked upon Obi Jackson
as a ism who, liks mm silent um, el-
though slow to anger, would be a dan-
goreurcrnWc'ter if .Me aroused. This
idea was eonllrmud on a dismal winter
eveuing, when a number uf persons, to
escape the pitiless pelting, of a storm,
had eongregated for warmth ubuut a
huge red-lint sheet-iron stove in Barry's
suhiiiii. Among tho company un that
evening was an elderly Aniericau who
was known to bis companions as
"Judge" We, miiiin. It was giveu out
that Bt one timu iu hie life he hud linen
a man of some iulluence, that he hud
worn the ermine ami dispensed justice,
und thut, which was still butter, iu Iiis

Ou this particular evuuing the
"Judge," who was much the wurse
for liquur and was iu a luquacious
muud, was relating tu the assumblud
