Many of 'the irrational  creatures surpass us in the gifts we  liol-d .in common, but speech is the  glory of man alone. As this gift is  to truly remarkable, for the use of it  *we shall be held strictly accountable.  "By thy words thou shall be condemn-  *d;" and "For every idle word men  ���' shall speak they shall give account  thereof in the day of judgment.  ���  But it is not of the abuse of speech  t would speak, but of its use in our social intercourse with one another, of  its proper employment 'by Christian*,  , whose tongue is mostly utilised in discourse about'the passing things of the  Hay, and who look forward to the time  when, ^before His thone, 'this same  ���,    tongue shall announce His praise,  i How, then, can Christians carry out  the Apostolic injunction mentioned in  .' ' the text? Can there be grace or savor  ' 'discovered in the conversations of daily  life Can our ordinary speech be not  only free from blame, but! can it also  8iavev in it that which is good to the  point of edification?  'lYes.   "There is One that hoklelh His  peace,' that is fourtd wise;"   One who  lived thirty years in ordinary life and  - whose, tongue   gave   no   offence.    He  made doors  and  bars  to  His  mouth  and kept .His tongue from evil, and in  every word was pleasing to His Father.  While the Evangelists  have given us  no account of our Lord's words during  those thirty years, yet there are three  instances related that unfold to  us a  fact that our Lord mingled freely in  Bocial   intercourse   with   others���first,  iwhen he tarried ^ behind after the fes-  / tival in Jerusalem; next, at. the marriage feast in Cana, and then the words  "The   Son   of  Man   came   eating  and  drinking." ��� These instances show that  our Lord did'not shun social meetings  with His neighbors.    For all that, He  was in no way odd, but chose to be iike  \mto the mass .of His brethren and to  pass-through life as most 6f us have  to pass through.    He took part in all  things  not  sinful  in   which  our  daily  lives   are   spent,  and_ thereby gave us  the comforting assurance that our lowliness  and  earthlincss need  not make  us  sinful,  cither.    He  proved conclusively that we need not separate ourselves from our ordinary calling to be  acceptable to God.  So Jesus Christ walked with men for  many years -without separating Himself  from them in speech, for His speech  ,was "always with grace, savored with  salt." Surely we can learn a lesson  after the manner' of Christ ! Many  honest-minded persons have an erroneous idea that conversations cannot br  righteous unless religious topics are  spoken of, and they regard all who arc  jiot prompt in such speech as unspirit-  ual. How unlike Christ is this class !  "For thirty years Christ drew olhc-rs to-1  ward what was good, yet it was '6  done as not to attract extraordinary attention to' Himself; so done that He  seemed to those to whom He spoke as  none othei than what His outward con-  1 dition betokened Him, "the carpenter's  son." This class, however, constantly  attract attention to themselves by placing too much value on religious talk  in every day life*. ,  The action of Christ, on the other  hand, suggests that our ordinary conversations are vastly more important  than our direct religious comments, or,  in other words, it is of greater consequence that we watch over our common talk on ordinal y matters than  that we be often talking religiously, for  there is no need for religious conversations to reveal the true inwardness  of a man. What is really in a man  .will be felt in his ordinary discourse.  "Out of tho abundance of the heart th"  mouth speaketh. A good man, out of  a good treasure, bringcth forth good  things, and an evil man, out of an etil  treasura, bringcth forth evil things."  iFor a truly religious man will have hi*  words always "seasoned with salt."  As in our ordinary meals a little silt,  though it does not appear, yet savors  the food, so, too, without protrauing  itself the influence of a good man who  has the love and fear of God in his  soul will be felt. On. the contrary, the  man who talks religion, constancy  dwelling especially upon himself, his  feelings, his experiences, his fitness to  teach and guide others, has his speech  overseasoncd with salt and leaves an  unpleasant savor; for if any man think  himself religious, ."not bridling his  tongue, but deceiving his own heart,  this man's religion is vain."  Let us strive, then, to use aright this  gift of speech, so that in the resurrection, amid the perfections of the future  She���Now that papa has lost all his money,  'marry me? ��� *  He���My darling, can't you see'Ilia, t I do?  state, our tongues may be deemeo  worthy to be everlastingly employed in  giving glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to Him who sits upon the  throne, and let our prayer be the words  ���of the Psalmist, "Set a watch, O Lord,  before my mouth and a door around  my lips," forever bearing in mind that  "a peaceful tongue is a tree of life, but  that which is immoderate shall crush  the spirit."  Oats a Safe Hen Food  It Is strange what fool theories men  of good - common sense will allow  themselves to believe.- Listen to this,  which ,comes from one of our veterinary writers: "Oats in the hull will  eo injure and inflame the lining of the  crop of the fowl as to cause death."  As a> theory, this is bad enough, but  when" we are told'by some poultry editor that we must give up feeding oats  because the practice is dangerous, then  is becomes ridiculous. As a1 matter of  fact, the hull of the bat is'not of an  inflammatory ' nature, -. and*, contains  nothing that can possibly lead to an  inflamed condition. Oats' fed whole  are not even irritating, as, the liulL is  neither stiff -nor sharp,,, and when  moistened in the crop of the fowl becomes soft and pliable.    <Vl*  I haye fed oats to hens and to growing chicks for-years, and have-never  had one die from this cause. On the  contrary, I believe oats to' be not only a stimulating and energy-making  food, but a very wholcsdme one as  well. 'From my experience, which is  by 'no means limited, I have come to  believe that bats.are, one of the best  egg-making food's'we' have; that they  are productive of growth' when fed to  which is rightly,, so highly esteemed.  In cold weather the milk is all the better left for twenty-four hours or even  thirty-six, before scalded."���Hoard's  (Dairyman. ���      ' '  Strawberry Cure for Rheumatism,,  "The strawberry cure for rheumatism is the, latest fad I have heard of,"  said a druggist.

What is known as Devonshire cream  is a species of pasteurized cream and i*  made as follows :���  "The milk must be taken direct from  the cow and strained into the pans in  the usual way. It should set in a cooi  dairy, and I believe for want of this  cool apartiient many a good housewife has failed to turn out the genuine article. Good, sound pans must  be used, as they have to bear constant  heating. . There ,is an objectionable  plan in some establishments of leaving  the milk in the sheds for- a time aftei  it is drawn from the cow. Clotted  cream made from such milk will not  , turn out a good flavor, as there is sure  to have been more or less tainting oi  milk while standing about. Just now  many Devonians milk out in the open  field, and ii tlie cows arc quiet the  plan has its advantages, for there is  no tainting of milk there.  . "This requires the most care ; indeed, there is nothing else in the  whole process but a mere tyro could  (manage. As soon as the milk is cold,  or, say, about nine or twelve hours  after brought from the cow, the pans  arc lifted to the fire. In big dairies  there are what are known as Devonshire stoves especially made for the  purpose. The stoves so made, heat  water in which a number of pans may  be set so as to scald a quantity of milk  with little trouble. In smaller dairies  the kitchen range does duty, the pans  of milk being set in vessels of boiling  water, or the pans may be set on a  heated range. In any case, the object  is to soald the milk, and to ��!b it  promptly and exactly. It should reach  such a temperature that causes a little  movement on the surface���a very  slight simmer suffices; then it may be  removed back to the dairy to get cold  The Family "Champeen.'-  , -"Did youse hear about Chimmie niak*  in* de ten base hits in de game las' Sunday?"

Eo had never loved* the fair, haughty  'beauty,' yet he had vowed to win her  fortune, ho had* been resigned to accept Loraino wfth  it.  Eagerly he 'watched' the rapid recovery of his rival, bitcerly cursing his  luck. His congratulations, although  beting antythihg but sincere, had the  essence of earnestness in tone and  look, which, although a spurious article, readily passed for the genuine  coin. ' '  Loraine, who -had rapirJly recovered  from her terrible shock, had taken up  her place with his mother, whose illness had not proven so serisus as was  at first supposed, at Ulmont's bedside,  antd good old Dr. Nelson often ^remarked 'his patient's rapid recovery  was In a great measure due to Loraine's careful nursing.  "I never could have spared him,"  she would 'say, with a bright, happy laugh, while Ulmont answered  gently: '   '  "The life you have striven so hard  to save, 'Loraino, shall ever be devoted to you!"  To Ulmpnt Ulvesford there seemed  to exist no break in tho love ho had  always borne to Loraine.  Mrs. Ulvesford had t.ikon up her  vigil by his bedside, refusing to be  comforted; all the love of her life was  centered in her hand-^ome, only son.  Once, in his 'dreams, and sho saw  his lips move, as she bent her head,  she thought she heard him wh'sper  a sweet, fanciful name; it sounded  like  "Izetta."  He never uttored the name but once,  and she soon forgot tho incident, it  was of so little Import.  Slowly Ulmont Ulvesford gathered  np the tangled threads of his Ii��e  again; by degrees a part of the scattered past returned to him.  He remembered quite well his travels abroad, the peoplo whom he had  met,  and  tho pleasant ocean  voyage  ' (His vow, his man in go, and the existence of his fair, young wife were  Bwept entirely, from Ulmont Ulves-  ford's min'd.  Heaven pity him I how should" ho  ever know of them again?  The only one who could have pierced1 the darkness of that benighted  brain, and whispered <"0 him of the  'broken- hearted young wife who waited in vain for his coming, was good  old Paul Ulingsworth, and with him  every memento of thai brief, strange  past was'swept entiiely from the-face  of  the  earth..  Owing to Ulmont's strong constitution, his convalescence was more rapid than might have been^expected. He  was amazed when they told him the  fall and winter had passed away and  spring had come onco more. < Every  one was so pleased to greet the young  heir again.  1 "It was quite worth his illness to  see how much people cared' for jiim,"  he said, with a   gay laugh. <  He was tho same happy,1 careless, debonair fellow as of old; he was changed only in appearance; yet that change  was * * wonderful ��� his most intimate  friends were amazed.' ,' -���  The deep hazels eyes and laughing  mouth were the same; but- the dark  waving masses of nut-brown hair were  goao; fair rings clustered around his  brow instead, gold as Loiaino's own,  soft  and  shining.   , ., '  The effect was marvelous. Those  who had admired 'Ulmont Uh esford  nefore, were doubly charmed - witn  him now.    '" f      \ *  Since his illness he had'been given  to. strange fits ot melancholy reveries which seemed ever seeking  some' thought quite foigotten, which  brought with them a vague/ indefinable pain; he could neverUell why  he alwaysattrlbuted'it to some vanished' fancy "during his illness; he  did not care to remember it. Mrs.  Ulvesford clasped Loraino in her arms,  saying the happiest day of her life  would be <"he day which made'her hei  son's wife. _, (. ' } \, *  ,. 'Again, through the cruel mystene-  of fate, the wedding preparations were  going, steadily on. This time it_was  concluded that the ceiem'ony should  be - performed at'-'the church in the  early morning, when the sun'was shining and the birds were sngiing.  "I could never endure a   repetition  of--that cruel night at, Lorrimer Hall,  when   I   thought   I   had    lost you,"  -whispered Loraino. *  "You*shall have your own,' way,  my darling," answered Ulmont; "your  Jway shall be' my law."  ��� So it was arranged that the wed-  Iding should take place at the church,  and be as quiet a   one i>s possible.  The propitious morning dawned at  last.  At an' early hour a, long array ol  carriages drew up before +he' little  vine-covered, chuich in the suburbs  The sunshine' drifted down through  'the foliage like molten" gold; the robins in the green branches mingled  their notes with the tuneful bobol.'nk  the sweet scent of honcvsuckle and  clover wafted their fingranoe ovei  the hawthorn' hedges, the sun hinted  love to the cloud's, the birds sang of  love to their mates; love was the song  the little brook sang as it danced joyfully over the white pebbles��� ail nature sang of love on this pitiful marriage morn.     '  'Ulmont would allow no shadow to  cross the brightness of the day. If  one of those strange, brooding fancies he could not define stole over him,  he shook it off and forgot it in watching the beautiful, flower- like face of  Loraine. '  Neither the sunshine, the ' flowers,  tho birds, nor the brooklet warned  them of the fatal tragedy which was  about to be enacted; a tragedy too  deep, too bitter for words to describe, and they went on to their  doom with a   smile on their faces.  The sunshine streamed in through  the colored windows, flecking the  bride's soft, fleecy robes, with bars  of crimson, purple and gold.  1 Ulmont pressed the 'littlo hand  tenderly as thoy took their places at  the1 altar.  Suddenly, and without warning,  'dark clouds scudded across tho sunshine, tho soft, summer breeze wailed  among the tall oak trees, and the  flowering lilacs; tho blossoms on the  hillside swayed to and fro, bending  their heads before the storm.  Tho distant ocean wildly beat tht>  shore like a relentless, angry spirit;  in one brief instant tho face of nature  had changed. Thunder rolled across  the darkening sky. and vivid flashes  of lightning, following each other in  rapid succession, felled many a sto te-  ly forest oak, whose crashing as it  fell to earth was plainly heaid, and  they /lit up tho group that stood toe-  fore the dim altar, with its cold,  'bright glare. *  Loraine's faoe was very pale, and  Ulmont noticed tho littlo hand which  he held fluttered slightly. Ulmont Ul-  vesford's face was calm and implacable as a marble statue. A half  hour after tbey had entered the dim,  old church they were pronounced ���  oh, cruel mockery of fate��� pronounced man nnd wife.

"I want}  the soenes I love best to linger last-  in my memory."  Ulmont was loth to leave the blua  skies of Spain, wheie the olive and  the myrtle ripen luxuriantly under  the golden sunshine.

You would not permit  free advertising, so I must not mention  its name. In fact, there ia a little practical difficulty in so doing, that I will let  you infer.'  My newspaper depends upon its reputation for giving all of the news, rather  It is related that once, when "Punch"  printed a cartoon representing an 'ma"ra-  *ry conversation between James McNeil  fRTuster ana Oscar Wilde,, Wilde wired  Whistler: "Ridiculous; when you and,I  *re togother we never talk about any-  "Humj except ourselves." "You forget"  ir-eplied Wliistle-r in a return telegram,  when you and I are together we never  walk about anything except me."  The- following story is credited to a  jNejr Orleans lawyer, who was asked to  mddrcss the boys of a business school. He  commenced:���''My young friends, as I  approached the entrance to this room I  motlced on the panel of the door a word  �����"<*nt'** appropriate to an institution  pt this kind. It oppresses the one thing  ���lost useful to the average man when he  ���tepa into the arena of life.   It was "  l"Pu"V shouted the boys, in a roar' of  "teugbter, and the lawyer felt  that h��  amd taken his text from the wrong side  , *M the door.   ,  I Ot Miaa "Bee* Drew, John .Drew'i  "MUffhtor, it is aald that one day in her  tehildfaood she asked her father how of-  ton a certain paper, "The Daily  ,"  'appeared. "The paper is called the "Daily,'  {isn't it?" Mr. Drew asked. "Yes," said  ,��he young girl. "Then mustn't it of ne-  .oeeei'y appear every day?" "I don't  ��mte see that," said Miss Drew. "It i��  iplaln enough. Why'don't you see it?"  ilier father asked. /'Because," she answered, "if The Daily  ' must appeal  every day, then "The Century* must ap-  Ipear every century."  ��� One day rocently, says the Koehestei  Post-Express," a certain justice of the  jfiuprerae Court'of that district invited a  jlnend of his, a lawyer, to go sailing  With him. The wind was brisk at the  start, and it soon freshened, nnd then  little craft began to loss and loll in'a  manner that caused the lawyer much in *  ward uneasiness. The judge, reading hit  friend's plight in his contortions, laid a  I*??* -nand   on  his' shoulder, and  said  KX?'

Tnere��-  fore, it does not think it necessary to  .begm every important article on the  first page.  B6foro I discovered my newspaper,' I  used  to   become   very  irritable   at   tho  breakfast table.   I would begin a piece of  news, -read down the column, and find  tins formula/ "Continued on page' thrae."  Then  I  would   refold' the  great  sheet,  stand it  up  against  tho   water-pitcher,'  and read a dozen lines to the end; Turning back to the first page, I would begin  another article and soon come to a stop'  with   the  words,   "Continued  on    page  nine."   Thia time I would rumple ihe paper considerably as I hunted for tVhe sequel.   About the third time, I would say  to my wife, "What ia the matter with  this I coffee? ,  I'never drank  such  vile  .stuff before in my life."  We killed a man at our club the other  night, and he was a good fellow, too.  We, all liked him, but we all joined in'  the most brutal assault upon him. The  trouble was that he would everlastingly  interlard his talk with such expressions  as this: "The news about Smith, that I  was'the first to make public, etc."    Or  Ngse    Betray- 'ine  CaSr-irtcr.  The fcnman character betrays Jtsalf on  ���very hand and every foot, and even on  the human nose, if the observer only  knows where to look and how to apply'  his observations.  Phrenology and palmistry are well  known, but the art of pedomanoy is the  latest 'means ,of ascertaining the true  character of the individual.  Domestic comfort is denoted by having  "the second toe humped above the rest,  at the same time escaping a corn." On'  the other hand, or ' foot, small 'feet  cramped by small shoes mark their owner  as possessing "vanity nnd great courage." A short, thick, stubby foot with  rather; large .ankle shows "not so much  executive ability as dogged persever-'  ance." , ' ,  Beware of the man whose ankles turn  in; "he is generally ncan and 'selfish,"  and women who st. ��� d 'on one foot are  full of ideas and ori- nnlity." This duck-  like attitude is certainly unusual. People who cross the feet or' stand 'on one  side of the foot are irritable, eccentric,  talented and uncertain. An addendum is  the declaration that mentality 1b marked  on the heel. A network of. small lines,  denotes great versatility and skill in art  and literature, while a smooth sur'soa of  heel is * sure sign of a pUdd, noowork-  ing brain. _;. ,  The long second toe means �� masterful  mind and is a clear .indication th*t the  owner of the long second toe lVths ruler  of the domestic, household.   Short,* stub  3   '  '"My dear fellow, can I do anything foi  .you?" "Yes, your honor," replied thi  lawyer. "I wish you would overrule thi*  ���motion."  .'   Onco, when the late Bishop of Canter  fmry, who was an.almost fanatical advo  jcate of the temperance movement, wni  tBisbop of Exeter, he travelled some dis  jtaitce into the country to attend an ag  iaricultural function.   On his return, h?i  jreab was disturbed by a newsboy shout  "Remarkable    statement'  by   'thi  ��� of Exeterl"   To gratify his cu.-i  f, lie despatched a ^servant ito. pur  * the  paper.    This"^was;foundatc  ontaln his morning's address, but ovei  "Bis remark���jocosely made, .of course���  I U have never been drunk in my life,'  Nihe sub-editor had placed the bold crosi  2��ead, "Remarkable   Statement by    thi  ���Bishop of Exeter!" .  1     On one occasion when Mr. John IM  JDunlop, now a prominent official of i  Uarge  banking institution in  Montreal  - fwas crossing the Atlantic, a noted pun  ster was    exhibiting his    skill    in thi  ismokor by making pun3 from the namei  jof his  fellow-passengers.    A  discussio*  arose, and the punster declared hi3 abil  ifcy to squeeze a pun from the name oi  ianyone on the ship.    "Wait a bit," ex-  (claimed   Dunlop,   *T11   wager   you   thi  ���smokes that you can't work it on mj  |name."   Quick as a flash came the re-  [spouse: "Oht that's easy; just  'lop��   of)  |the last   three    letters  and  it's  'dun.1  JDunlop bought for the crowd.  this, "Mi I told you all last week, etc."    by toes indicate" two*things: First."that  Some of the gentlest members of the club    ft"*  -'-   ���'    *     8   .-*""��� Wlat  fell upon him in a perfect rage.  There oame into the village a man who  undertook to reform the club; he said  wo were too dull,' too remote from real  life. "What," snid he, "do we care about  the downfall of the British ministry, or  the prospects of polar exploration?". He  said the daily newspaper was a very good  index to what the people were interested  in, and we ought to get our* subjects  fiom the press.  Woll, to be brief, he carried his point  Jjid revolutionized the club.--I-will give  a few of the topics that I hear have been  under discussion: "Who began tho row  at lUcFlynn's saloon?" "The naked fact*  of the^Jonesbury divorce case." "The-art  of padding for scrawny built women."  They tell me the meetings are very full  I don't.know. 'My wife and I stay at  homo "and read my newspaper.���Kilmii'  Caston in "Life.".  An Unhappy Woman.  "Mary Queen of Scots was a most un-,  happy woman, wasn't she?" enquired'a'  thin man of a friend in1 the train the'  other day. '   ,   .  "Indeed she was,"  replied -the other  earnestly.  "Queen Elizabeth was also far from,  haPPy�� wasn't-'she?" ���       ���   ,  ���   "Very much bo, I should say, if history  is to be believed."  ' ' "\'  "Then there was Catherine- "  A Living Encyclopedia.  / Lyulph Stanley wa3 an Englishman ol  whom Lowell said that lie "knew' thrci  times as many fa-cts as any young mar,  whatever had any business to know."  Ho.had but -ono' rival in that linoi  Palgrave, who compiled the "GoldeS  Treasury." Much interest sprang uj  among their friends whe,i the two weni  off on a trip together.  "It's an even chance which will returr  alive," said one man, solemnly. When  they did come back, Palgrave was palo,  emaciated, silent; but Stanley seemen  ,1'nmoved, and more all-knowing than  ever.  One night Buckle, the author of "Thi  History of Civilization," was laying  down^ the law on every subject, with a  magnificent pomposity that made the  table quake. At last ho put forth some  statement about the burning of a witch,  ���and .set tho date a century out of the  way. Stanley, who was present, had  oorno some preceding inaccurncios verj  well, wibh only a slight shaking of the  head nnd a reddening of the face. t  Suddenly his self-control gave way,  and he leaped to his feet. He extended  hit* hand, and piped forth in a vigoroui  treble:���  "[ hog your pnrdon, but the lust witch  was burned at such-and-such a place, in  -fluch-nnd-Biioh a year, under such-and-  ���anc'i circumstances And her namo was  -so-and-so, and you will find all about'it  in n. l>ook to which I can easily refer,  you/ nnd which you evidently don't  'know."  Tort en ts of impiisoncd knowledge were  -���thereupon poured on Buckle's head, un til  the lii.slorian of civilization sat wrathful,  oxtiHguLshcd, mute. But a little Inter he  had bin revenge. Some one mentioned a  new dictionary as a good one.  "It is," said .Buckle, with solemnity,  '"it in one of the few dictionaries I hav��  ���road through with pleasure."  The intimation that he had read any  dictionary through for pleasure so-as-  tonislied the guests that they forgot bis  past discomfiture in new awe.  "What on earth' are you driving at,  may I'ask?" broke in the man who was  being regaled with the* names of the unhappy women of history.  'I was just about to remark," continued the thin man, "that the name of  the unhappiest woman in the world does  not appear in history. Now, I've got a  sister-in-law named Martha Tabbs, and  just at present she is the most wretched  woman on the face of the earth."  "What's the matter with her���lost  'money?"  "No���J��  "HI, maybe?" broke in the other.  "No j but, you see, last week her husband bought her a two-guinea hat "'  "And I suppose the two-guinea hat  made her more unhappy than Mary  Queen of Scots was, when she discovered  that her neighbor had one costing five?"  "That was not it at all. She was as  nappy as a skylark in a June meadow  until she tripped and fell going up some  iteps and sprained her ankle. She is now  lying in bed, unable to wear the hnt, and  by the time she can wear it, it will probably be out of fashion. I tell you it is  sad to watch her looking tearfully at  that hat, which hangs on a peg near hei  bed. Talk about the unhappy women of  history. Why she is more unhappy than  any ten of them put together."���"Pick.-  Me-Up."     '  Caught in the Act  Walter A. WyckolT, professor of sociology at Princeton, recently married Miss  the owner went shoeless when young,  and, secondly, a great firmness of,character. .. .    j  A high instep shows a nervous person -  easily excited and as easily tired.   A'low  Hat instep marks the man who gathers  together the money and holds it.  Widespread feet indicate in a man a  disposition to stop.iiiid consider before  he acts, while a swinging foot that look"  as if it was about'to hook into its mate  shows irresolution and lack of detcrmina-'  tion. t ,  In a woman a long.'narrow foot always  shows  high 'breeding, and a small fool  does not always appear desirable, as the*  exceedingly small ones mean a weak'and  submissive character.,  Nooography is moie .'it hails from  Austria where much icsearch has been  devoted to the, study of'noses as an in-  dicatton of character.. A small nose indicates lack of moral vigor, a flat'nose  lowness of intellect,*!!, pug nose indelica-'  ey, a drooping, nose dullness, while the  j S1 proclaims strength of will  and the Grecian proboscis goes with a re  lined character. ' -        ,  , These   are   merely, the   rudiments   Q!-  nosography; there are subtler signs, sue!  as a thin bridge (shrewdness), two later  al prominences (literary skill), wrinkler  on either side-(wealth), and large no��  tnls (courage).. It is disconcerting that  a man's character should be thus writ ii -  , his nose 'that all  who, join  the  Nose  graphological institute may read.   Ca* '  a man conceal his nose?   When a bulh"  ous-nosed  individual  sees   a  fellow-passenger in 'the street car eyeing his prominent purpled organ, it is useless to at  tribute it to indigestion; the nose spells  as plainly as if it spoke, "Black List," tr  trie observant stranger.

It was 'thus that the case of Tlie Peo  pie vs. Kails came to, trial in the adjoining chamber of the Tombs two days  later���came to trial with the father'on  one cide and the son on the other; with  Sandler, big and fierce, to the fore, and  Johnny Kells defiantly amiable first to  last.   ,  They called it a memorable day' in  that\Egyptianncavern (tho Bridge of  Sighs opening on tho'left), not alone for  the trial itself���which was, after all, but  d short affair���but for the audience it  evoked. Four aldcimen had eome in  with Supervisor Jo Budd; and the Dojan  boys, under Sheriff Shane, - shufllcd  ; through the door after Wun Lung, (the  Chinese interpietcr, tossing the last of  a cigar behind the rear benches.

It was not icmaikablc that Malstcn,  f fattest of tlie three magistrates who occupied  the  bench, fahould  awaken  fiom  his doze nnd mutter to Coi win; "What's  Stenny doin' here?"  "Dunno," returned Coi win, "unless to  see the fun in the Kells case.'.'     *   '.  After it wa3 over, woid  went'about  that the Mayor and the District Attoi  nex.hj.d he.cn seated io-tkc outer crowd,  At all events the -world seemed* to  havo learned that Old Curry and his  son were to fight a case in the Spcciil  Cessions. The place would hold no more.  "Even the' corridor creaked*with the  would-be spectators, so that it ^vas a  momentous matter for Old Curry to get  in, and to make'a path for the Widow  Kells, 1. who was a'.resplendent person  that.day, her black silk rustling richly  as she struggled to her 'seat, within the  rail,-her tumultuous bonnet shimmering  gayly in the grim plabe.    ,.     ���', '  Big Sandler made-a significant, grimace when he saw the widow come^in,  ���nd Old Curry before her making a  path., As for Martin Curry, he had no  stomach for the,business from that moment, though a high -"rebellion of pattered pride remained v with ��� him' to the  end. The justices had no disposition to  hurry matters. The mere., situation,  quite without regard to the details, was  too entertaining. Martin OuTry'knew  this so well;that h��* became nervously  eager to finish the'affair before it had  begun, andjhe was as curt in his examination of big Sandler a3 'if that  large person had been ��. hostile witness. ��� Moreover, he was sure of, his  case. The -ruling of the examining justice had fortified him. Detention was  larceny. There was the end of the matter. He had-an angry pity for the old  man, who must come to the end of, his  rope before lorvg. '       . ,..,-',_  Sandler told tho simple story -of (the'  mule; of its puichase from Kells; -of 111*  iater "finding of the t animal in Kells'.i  Btable near ske Bend;'of his demand���*for  the delivcry'of the mule,'a demand made  in peaceable terms;- of Kells's outrageous "strike" -for money, nnd hist own indignant refusal to pay the same; of  Kells'e criminal wtthnolding of the mule  to the present hoar.   r  Old Curry arose in'grcat pomp for the'  cro3s-exam"nation.< He was as -little-in  , haste as t"he court itself. ��� Yet 'iii1* ques-  'tions were few. Sandler admitted hi&  ignorance of the -precise manner in which  the mule,came to" be in Kells's stable.  He admitted 'tSiat Kells's demand * for  money was in the form of p. T)ill for  feed.

"Perhaps," suggested Martin with i.  s.traincd smile, "your Honor doesu'ii  understand that we appear on opposit'  ,sideo in this case." '  { "I���I see," said Slote, with signs 01  pot'being at all clear. "On opposite  pidea." He had known the Currys lot  .'twenty years, and the situation natur  'ally struck him as peculiar. He lndi  ',cated by his later manner that it alaf  struck aim as amusing. In the matter  of Old Curry's motion, he remarked thai  it was denied. The New Code distinctly  characterized such detention as lar  'ceny.  Old Curry shrugged his lofty ehoul  dera, and seemed about to speak, when  Slote pushed forward an open copy oi  the Code, decorated with crosses, inde*  fingers, and other marginal aids.  . The old lawyer, without looking at thi  Oook or at his son, remarked casually  "f understand there is some doubt as tc  the value of this mule."  "There ain't no doubt about It," broke  in Sandler; but young Curry, subduing  his client, very deliberately moved iu  amend the complaint so that.it might  read "twenty-four dollars," and Old  Curry grinned under his bristles. '  The change made the oharge one ol  petty larceny, and sent the case to Special  Sessions  instp'td  of  to  the Grand  iiim."       ' 1 \  "He wore a cheerful appearance?"  ,' "I <&unno.

Let me ask you���do you  know how much that mule can eat in  fifteen hours?"  "No."  "Yon never happened to give iim all  he could eat, did you?"  Martin was on his feet expostulating  ���'If vour Honors please, are we to hi  insulted? I submit that the question L  grossly irrelevant."  Old Curry fr-owned, and the Court  asked the purpose of the question.  "My purpose, if the Court please, it  to show that thia man Sandler���"  "I object to counsel's phrase," cried  Martin Curry.   "It is highly improper."'  The old man nodded.   "Counsel with  draws the   phrase.     My purpose is to  show that the complainant so far underestimated the needs���if your Honors  choose, the capacity���of this mule that  he  (the mule)   was-in danger of olow  starvation, and  that his   condition, ax  your Honors  will  soon  learn,  led  di-  ,rectiy to the circumstances out of whioa  this charge arises."  The Court doubted, but admitted th*  1 testimony���on probation.
