The  following anecdote was told of  General   Oilman   Marston,   a once   famous   New .Hampshire  lawyer,  says  the   Hoston Herald.    General     Mars-  ton   was   attending court   at   Dover,  when   a young  attorney   made  a. mo-.  (ion   that  was denied  by   the court.  The young man  remonstrated against  what'he thought was the wrong ruling  of  thc judge. So  vehemently  did  be" remonstrate that he was  fined 510  for  contempt  of court/. An   older, at^  toriiey   took   the  matter   up  and was  JTft|Tifl!f  -:-  -i-  .1  With Most Hen  it "isn't     so much what tli.iy  pay ior Shirts, as it is what  they     get for     their money.  They want to fell safe as to  'Style,,    Material,     Fit, and  good Shirt making  llliitd a similar sum.'.Sf.ll another,  who thought he stood a little bctt������f  with the judge, endeavored to straij  ghten the matter out,- but he, too,  ennched the coffers ol trie state toy  paying a "ten spot"   for  contempt.  Gcucial  Marston   was then seen  to  lise  in  ho seat  and   aihance  to  the  clerk's  desk.    Taking   his   long   pock-  etbook from his  pocket, he  took out  two   HO   bills and  laid  them on the  desk. ' '  "What  is  that for?"  asked       the  court.    -'  I   want  you  to  distinctly  under-,  stand,"   said  thc  general,   "that    I  haAc     just  twice as much contempt  for  ' this d  court as any man  here,  and I am paying for it."  - ��������� ,      ���������       ���������  Have you seen Maggie Riley wearying   that, pretty,   ready-to-wear  hat,  '.eeently purchased     at Simon Leiser  U Co.'s Ltd.?
