SPONGING FOIt KNOWLEDGE.
Some of the Annoyances Limbs of tlio
Law Contend With.
"City magistrates and Justices of the
peace," said a well-known legal man near
the city hall, "have much more to con
tend with than the casual public are
aware of. To our offices flock creditors
and persons wanting criminal warrants.
Information seekers and what not. We
receive feesjn all cases, to be sure, but even
that doe3 cot prevent the worry and
bother incident to this business and the
people with whom you come In contact.
"Only yesterday a man entered my of

" 'Of what?' queried he.
" 'Of the peace, of course.'
" 'now's that?' and he dropped lazily
Into a chair.
"'Sir,' I yelled, for I was exasperated
at the fool's brass, "what do you want?'

"Onc man, a young lawyer, made It his
business to drop In here and engage me in
conversation. A pleasant fellow he was,
I Foon learned be came only to glean from
me Ideas concerning points in law. My
time was too precious to lose In that way,
so when he came around the next time I
talked with him for a time, and when he
was about to leave I scribbled on a piece
of paper and handed It to him.
"What's this?' be exclaimed.
" 'BUI for $5 for legal Information,' I
said quietly. He flushed up, paid the
money and went out." .
DECADENCE OF TI1E PAW-PAW.
Little But Songs Now Remain to Tell
One seldom sees' the paw-paw apple now.
Some years "ago every stand In the market
kept a tray of the fruit and the stock
ot the street fruit stand was Incomplete
without the luclous paw paw-fruit.
Like the chinquapin the paw-paw apple
has seen its best days In this city and
has passed to the grave where all dead
and back-date things go. Not because tho
fruit of the paw paw tree has become ex
tinct has it passed from the market, for
thereare proves of paw-pawor "soap trees"
Even the nursery rjhmcs concerning the
fruit passed away as did that good old fa
miliar "Jim, Jim; Chinquapin," etc. The
best known of these ditties Is:
Paw-paw apple, sweet and yellow.

It is proposed to erect n monument In

its stanch adherence to the Union. His

HIB EVENTFUL CAREER.
Green Clay Smith was born In Rich
mond, Ky., on the Zd of July, 1882, and
died on tbe 20th of June, 1805, so that
he lived to be a little lees than sixty
three years of age. He was named after
bis grandfather, Green Cla'y, who was a
member of the famous Ciay family, that
produced tbe great American statesman,
Gen. Smith's first military experience
was in tbe Mexican war, having enlisted at
fifteen in a regiment of Kentucky cavalry.
After twelve months' service he returned
to Lexington and graduated from tbe
Lexington Law School, in 18B3, and as
sociated himself In partnership with his
father, In Covington, Ky.
During the bitter strife that preceded
the civil war he took a strong position
in favor of tbe Union, and lifted his voice
in tbo halls of the Kentucky Legislature
He was appointed colonel In the Fourth
Kentucky Cavalry in 1862, and went South
with Den. lio.secmna. On June 11, 16C2.
he was made brigadier general of vol
unters. He was nominated for Con
gress ns a Republican while In the field,
and resigned his commission to take his
seat In the House, nis name was urged
for the Vice Presidency at the Baltimore
convention in 180 1, which nominated
In 18GG he resigned his scat in Con
gress to accept the iiositlon of Govornor of
Montana, tendered him by President John
son, and he served the Territory In this
capacity until 1SG0, when he entered the
ministry and was ordained pastor of the
Baptist ehiirch, at rrankrort, Ky.
HIS MINISTEHIAL LIFE.
For a number of years Gen. Smith de
voted himself to evangelistic work, until
he was tendered the pastorale by the Metro
politan Baptist Church In this city.
He did not loe his interest In military
matters, notwithstanding bis religious in
clinations, and In March, 1891, be was
chosen to be department commander of
the Union Veterans Union. It was largely
through his influence that the Grand Army
encampment was brought to this city in
His name was more than oncementioned in
connection with the position of Commis
sioner of Pensions.
This is tLe remarkable career of this
soldier, politician and preacher, who will
shortly be honored by his comrades la-arms
by a granite shaft that will perpetuate his
name and fame through allages.

Football alone seems to hang fire for

are, with two exceptions, no really first

because the two big star teams, the C. A. C.
