From the New York Evening Sun:
The lawyer's Inalienable and inestim-
able privilege of "cursing the court"
when the decision has gone against
him is marred as most lawyers realize
by the tact that the "cursing" must be
done In private. This animadversion
however sometimes takes the form of
communication of the lawyer's opinion
to the publisher of the law reports.
Parts of Koroe of these communications
have been printed recently by a law
publishing firm. Onv lawyer wrote:
"The case Is a 'legal cariosity and
seems to have been decided by sain
force." Another beaten in a highway

the publisher to chastise the court.

is full of good no kernel of nourish-

Women lawyer In Scotland.
The latest citadel attacked by wom-
ankind in Scotland Is that of the law.
A woman in Edinburgh has ontered
her petition to enter the legal profes-
sion and become a law agent. The
question Is still an open one as the
board of examiners of law agents feit
they were unequal to the task of de-
ciding the case and the appeal has
gone to the court of sessions. The
feeling of the public is In favor of the
new departure and there is little doubt
that the petition will be granted. Edin-
burgh formerly was a very strong op-
ponent to women doctors but what
was once a startling innovation has
become so much a matter of course that
it does not excite any surprise or even

USED IN JEWELRY.
(omnmpll i of Gold and Mirer to tot
Arm and Mannfaetara.
The director of the mint at Washing-
ton has for many years made an esti-
mate of the amount of gold and sllvei
consumed In this country in our Indus-
trial arts and manufactures which
estimate has been based upon the bul-
lion supplied by the mints and assay
offices as well as the figures from pri-
vate refineries and manufacturers to
whom inquiry has been sent on this
subject. For the last decade however
experts have seriously questioned the
estimates of the coin in ci-culation and
coin consumed in the arts as made by
the bureau of the mint on these figures
and on the table based on an elaborate
investigation made in 1885. To remove
all doubts on this subject and to ac-
curately determine the consumption
of gold and silver both bars and to n.
In the Industrial arts in the United
States the director of the mint last
December sent circulars to Jewelers
throughout the country asking as a
favor that the Jewelers fill out the
blank showing the amount ot coin or
bars gold or silver which they con
sumed either in their repair work or
in manufacturing. The returns from
these Inquiries though by no means
complete served to make much more
accurate the figures on the consump-
tion of gold and silver in the last re-
port of the director of the mint and an
effort will now be made to obtain
even fuller returns for the next report
With this object in view a circular
and blank similar to that sent out last
year will be Issued in January to all
manufacturers using gold or silver as
well as to all jewelers. Including those
who do even the smallest of repair
work with the request that the re-
cipients fill in ihe figures required in
doing this the Jeweler may feel sure
that bis figures will never be used
except In making a grand total and
will be held strictly confidential by
the treasury department. Among the
reasons which it is believed causad
persons in the past to hesitate in an-
swering these inquiries was the fear
that they had in using up coin inad-
vertently violated a statute and that
an admission of this fact might be usei
against them. Such a fear however is
absolutely without foundation as
there Is no contention that the use of
gold coin in manufacturers is con-
trary to lXw. The only object In ask-
ing for the information is to enable
the treasury department to estimate as
accurately as possible the money
now on hand by determining the
amount of United States coin lost An-
nually by being melted up for manu-
facturing purposes. It is not claimed
that any manufacturer is required by
law to give the information but as
there is no reason why he should not
and every reason why he should for
the benefit of all It Is confidently hoped
that the responses from the jewelry
trade to the department's new circular
soon to be sent out will be as complete
and satisfactory as the authorities of
the mint can desire. Chicago News.
RILEY AND VIOLIN.
Why tb Hoosier Foot Haa a Weakne
for the InetranMot-
It has been noticed that at all the
entertainments given by James Whit-
comb Riley there Is always a violin
solo on the program. There is never
an exception to the rule. His manager
says that the custom is followed out
of deference to Riley although It Is
not known that he ever requested such
a favor. There is a story back of that.
It appears that Riley's ambition early
in life was to be a violinist. He is quot-
ed as saying that an accident spoiled
a mighty fine fiddler to make a second-
rate poet but then people may not
agree with him on that score. When
he was a young man be exercised a fid-
dle a good deal. It is said that when
be began practicing out on the front
porch the neighbors went in and closed
the doors and windows no matter how
hot It might be but that may be a
slander. At any rate Riley wanted to
be a violinist and was getting greatly
wrapped up in his studies when he met
with an accident which caused the loss
of bis left thumb. This made it im-
possible for him to pursue h's Tlolln
practice and the songs that were
struggling for utterance through the
medium of the violin found escape
through verse snd the world is better
off on account of the accident. Riley's
managers know of his weakness for
the fiddle and that is the reason there
is always a violin solo in the entertain-
ment program. Chicago News.
New York' Smallpox Ramon.
The few smallpox cases in this city
have bred an astonishing crop of ru-
mors says the New York Sun. A wo-
man created a disturbance in one of
the largest dry goods stores In New
York a week ago by expressing the
suspicion that a slight rash on the face
of the girl who waited on her was
smallpox. A physician was summoned
and he pronounced the girl well. The
mere suspicion which had been ex-
pressed by the woman in a voice loud
enough for other women to hear was
the basis of a report which went all
over town that one of the employes
of the store bad been taken home suf-
fering from smallpox.

John Randall stood for a moment
leaning over the pasture bars in the
direction of the hills that rose between
him and the Delaware. It was in the
troublous times of the War of Inde-
pendence and John and his mother
and sister Betty remained on the little
New Jersey farm. The boys and girls
who have studied history know that
New Jersey was marched across mote
than any other state. John had seen
the fleeing patriots hurrying along the
highway more than once and too
he had seen the triumphant redcoats
marching by. It had not been an easy
matter to make the family living dur-
ing this time and John as the bead of
tbe family In his father's absence
felt the full responsibility of this.
They gave freely from their stores for
the patriots and frequently what re-
mained was taken by the redcoats
without even so much as a "thank
John had kept one precious treasure
through it all his horse Beauty. If
ever any horse deserved the name of
Beauty it was John's. Her black
coat was as carefully cared for as If
she had belonged to a king. She lov-
ed her master and followed him about
as a petted dog would. You may
wonder how she escaped being cap-
tured by the redcoats. Well there was
a little hollow down In the woodland
where John concealed her at the first
alarm. The soldiers were always In a
hurry and took anything they saw;
but so far they had never searched
nor asked questlona
"Mother" said John one day "if the
soldiers ever ask if I have a horse. It
would be all right to say no wonld It
not? I couldn't let Beauty go. She is
used to being petted so and the sol-
diers would be cruel to her I'm
"My son" said Mrs. Randall "I
know that many good people call It
right and lawful to tall a falsehood to
those thieving soldiers but John
your father would scorn to tell a lie to
save his life and I think he would like
to know that his son loved truth above
all else. However use your own
judgment my son. It would Indeed
be a sore trial to loss Beauty and I
pray the good God not to put you to
John thought for a moment aad
then said "If tney ask me I will tall
the truth because ot my father and
because It is right But nevertheless.
I shall hide Beauty so that they shall
not find her unless they search long
On this morning as he stood look-
ing toward the hills hs caught sight
of a gleam of red passing through one
of the defiles. He ran to the house as
fast as he could.
"Tbe redcoats mother!" he shouted.
Then he turned to the pasture bars sd-
Jolning the yard and called "Come.
Beauty! Come Beauty!" Beauty came
out of a clump of buahes and raced
across the pasture. She came up to
her master with arched neck aad
dainty prancing steps expecting a
frolic no doubt
"No time to play to-day my Beau-
ty" said John scrambling on her
back. "Now away with you to the
Beauty had never known the touch or
a whip and she scampered away down
the lane at John's command.
When the soldiers rode up they went
straight to the barn. There were no
horses there. They bad been taken
away long before. One of them came
o the door where John was stand. ng.
"Boy Is the.-e a horse any piacw
John's heart was as heavy as lead at
this question. He heard Betty give a
sob in tne kitchen back of him for
Betty loved Beauty as welt as John
"Yes sir" said John bravely at
"Oh there la. Is there?" said the
soldier surveying him wi.h an 1 c ed
ulous air. "Perhaps you will MI as
where It Is or even get It for us."
"No. sir. I will not" sild John.
Mr. Randall held her breath for
fear at the boldneis of the answ.r
but the soldier turned away laughing
as If a were a huge jjke.
"Major" he said turning to the
commanding office "will you sen I a
couple of men to teen b the place and
bring that mythical horse oat to the
light of day?"
"Nonsense lieutenant." earns the
gruff answer. "We have no time to
waste; there are no horses here for
they would not have had time to con-
ceal them since we came In sight"
How John thanked his stars that he
had seen that little gleam ot red
through the defile of the hills!
"As tor that boy's story" the com-
mander went on "natblng would
please him better than to have as
spend our time on a wild goase chase
until the Yankees came up. Do you
suDDose be would have to.d us if he
really had & horse? Let us rids on."
Then he turned to the soldiers and
shouted "Fall In" and in a few min-
utes the men were out of sight.
John stood In the doorway dased
with surprise while Betty danced
around him fairly shrieking with joy
"Oh they didn't take Beauty! They
didn't believe you John because you
told the truth!"
Betty entreated John to go at once
and bring her pet up but John said
no for more soldiers might be follow-
ing that first battalion So Betty put
on her bonnet and took a piece ot
bread and went to visit Beauty in her
More soldiers did follow that day
and after a time the patriots rods by.
Then the tumult ceased and Beauty
was brought back to her own pasture
and her bed in the barn.
"Are you sorry for telling the
truth?" said Mrs. Randall.
"No Indeed mother" cried John
"I suppose even if Beauty had betn
token I would be comforted because 1
did right But she wasn't token and
it seems too good to be true."
It wss not very long after that that
the horsemen rods through crying
"Cornwallls is taken!" And so the
soldiers ceased to march and Beauty
lived in safety and peace to the end
of her days. Christian Standard.
la Boy' Attire
There are many sensible mothers to
these so-called degenerate Umea who
realise more fully than our grand-
mothers did the value of childish ac-
tivities snd who are disposed to allow
their girls as well as their boys n
larger measure ot freedom than the
"old-fashioned girl" enjoyed.
If anything city mothers are mors
liberal In this direction than country
women. At the summer resorts pat-
ronized by townspeople U Is no un-
common sight to see girls as well as
boys arrayed In jumpers and though
we have seen many old ladles who
could remember when It was consid-
ered immodest for women to wear
drawers because it suggested mascu-
linity shake their heads over "those
tom-boys" emulating their brothers
In tree climbing and other boyish
sports the rosy cheeks of those same
"tom-boys" to say nothing ot other
evidences of health and vigor surely
Justified the Innovation.
During the snowy seasons In winter
there is even greater reason to favor
such a costume. Wbst normal child
can resist the Invitation of the snow
that tempting plaything' And the
deeper the snow the greater the snort.
But under such circumstances petti
coats that soon become crusted with
snow and dangle heavily around the
little ankles are not only a nuisance
but s menace to health. The girl
should be dressed like her brother In
trousers tucked Into a pair ot rubber
boots. Then she will be prepared to
thoroughly enjoy herself without run-
ning the risk of catching cold from
wet feet or damp skirts. It Is surely
better for the conventionalities to
suffer thsn for tbe child to do so
