badly off as ouo who stops a bullet, and
Is ciiunlly deserving of a pension, but,
under the Democratic loglme, thero was
a disposition to qulhblo over cases

Among the regular frequenters of tho

"Old Bob," who, upon being Informed that
tho gentleman was a Southerner nnd n

and decided to back bis own Judgment, lly

named by Harlan went under tho wiro first,
and tbo disconsolate better wore a very long

"The next tlmo Judge Harlan's brother

hour ho took chargo of a claim against tho

A new appointee made his appearanco In

minutes after an Introduction to the claim

tcnt of a dollar, and it was dono so quickly
that the g.ver hardly knew how It had been

An amusing Incident occurred In'au
F-sticct, bob-toll 'noa,I-sar shortly before
4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. "Tinkle,
tinkle, tinkle," pealed foitb in dulcet tone
the llttlo bell with which our street railway
cars aro equipped to notify passengers that
one, or perhaps moro of their number, had
not promptly paid h's faie, or was endeav
oring to beat I'm poor 6treet railway com
pany out of a r'clccl. An Interval of per
haps thrco mlmit'i claps-d and again the
little bell chimed foitb its din. An ominous
sllcrcofor a coimpondiiigly short period
of i.nio ensued, and onco more, but this
tlmo with the vigor of an Irato driver who
undoubtedly had the In'ricst of his cm
ploycis at hear.1, tho llttlo bell, in Impatient
and hasty stroke, again resounded through
out tho car. Now, In that car, sat Mr. Jus
tice Lampr, and thrco others belonging to
moiohumblo strata of society, and one of
them bed not paid bis faro. Glances wero
ha.t'Iy exchanged and wonderment was ex
pressed as to who tho guilty one could bo.
Mr. Lamar had bcenabsoibcd In an earnest

whose long, waving locks had been brushed
by tho dlvciy tassc's of mauy seasons'

teti-cent piece changed aud diopped a
nickel In tho slot of the fare-box. Now,
tbo fact of the matter was, Mr. Lamar bad
concluded his fiiend was tbo delinquent
and had dropped nn extm ticket

was soon aftei wards explained, Mr.
Lamor did not loso his ticket, tho car
shoitly took on another passenger, and Mr.
Lamar's fiiend, thinking that ouo good
turn deserved another, tumed to tho In

A roost Interesting experiment hvs re

such a way that the rays fell perpendicu
