ii THE TRIAL AT j|
Happening soon after the close ot
the war to ride along the road past
"Old P?P Castle/' I observed a
\aTce and excited concourse of col
ored people standing under the fa
mous oak at that place.
Tpon approaching and making
inquiry I learned that Uncle Ce
phas, now Squire Boldon, who, along
with some others of h;s race, had
-ecci? t ly been hppointed magistrate,
v c s about to hold his first court.
Elbowing my way through'the
dense crowd ' till I reached and
THOU ried one of the gnarled roots
of the oak, I:was enabled.to over
look thc sea of heads and survey
On the 6afest corner of a very un
Btoady shuck frame was perched
tho presiding magistrate, his ebony
forehead, which bowed back with
out limit over his boll pate, covered
with an appropriate frown.
The rest of the frame held the
eix jurymen, who leaned against or
sat upon it, according to each one's
confidence in its stability.
The prisoner, a vagabondish but
harmless looking man, on ' whoso
crow black face fright was imprint
ed in an ashy cast, was wrapped up
in ropes and placed in tho middle of
the shuck frame for safe keeping.
I had scarcely gained my posi
tion and taken in the surroundings
when the court opened.
"De court am now adjurned en
trill pereced to bizness," cried Un
cle Cephas in a loud voice as he re
moved his hat and dropped it, on tho
orouud. "Let whomsomedever gwi'
pussycute dis pussun hyere in de
shuck frame now speak up or f'rever

A young mulatto, the smartness
of whose dress culminated in a high
ly glazed paper cellar, slowly arose
from one of the oak roots, cleared
his throat in the most approved
legal fashion and announced that
lie had been engaged to conduct the
"Well, den, shoot, Luke, er give
up de gun," exclaimed the court
after the counsel had wasted a good
while fumbling through his pockets
in a perfunctory manner.
"Mistah Magistrate en genermen

after this warning, "you am dissem

While I was struggling desperate

were stripped from thc prisoner, a
slip noose in the grapevine thrown
around his nock, and he was dragged

Quaint Timothy Dexter.
Many years ago there was. an ec
centric merchant named Timothy
Dexter in Salem, Mass., who had a
work of his own writing, called "A
Pickle For the Knowing Ones," pub
lished, which contained no punctua
tion marks from ^beginning to end,
except in a few pages at the close,
which were entirely filled with com
mas, colons, semicolons and periods,
with a notice that each reader of the
book might "mix them in to suit
himself." Timothy Dexter was the
same person who sent a cargo of
warming pans to the West India is
lands. But he lost no money by
this, for the people knocked the lids
off and used them for dipping out

A HIGH PRICED CORN.
lt Bothered ? Banker and Waa Ro
mo ved by a 8uroeon.
Nekton, the well known surgeon,
was one day hastily summoned to
the house of a wealthy banker and
on his arrival was received by the
master of thc house, who said that
he itiohed him to perform an oper
ation on him. As he seemed to be in
perfect health Nelaton waa sur
prised at these words, but the bank
er speedily convinced him that he
was in earnest.
Seating himself in an armchair,
he took off ono shoe and stocking
and then, holding out tho fool, said,
"There is a corn which is causing
me much pain, and as you are the
only one in whom I have any confi
dence I want you to cut it off."
Nelson's first impulso was to
take his hat and leave the room, for
he thought it monstrous that a man
of his reputation should be asked to
perform such an operation. He
quickly, however, regained his usual
composure, and without a word he
placed a napkin over his knee, took
hold of the foot and removed the
corn. In a few minute-i ho was back
in his office, and his first act was to
send the following bill to the bank
er: "For performing a surgical op
It was now the banker's tura to
be surprised, and he lost^no time in
informing tho surgeon that be con
sidered his bill exorbitant.
Nelaton, however, replied that he
was a surgeon and not a pedicure,
and that, furthermore, he desired to
teach on this occasion a lesson
which might not bo remembered if
his bill for removing the corn was
anything less than $1,200. The
banker protested vigorously, but in
vain, and finally he was obliged to
pay the bill.

General directs that married women

Mending Broken Cast Iron.
Until recently it has been generally
conooded that whon articles made of
oast iron were broken they beoame al
together ucselesB, because they could
not bo welded, and as a consequence
the broken parts ultimately found their
way to the foundry to be recast. Suoh
a disposition of the broken oast iron
will be no longer necessary. This in
telligence oannot fail to prove of inter
est to farmers who are liable at any
time to break cast iron articles. A
German who lives in Philadelphia haB
discovered a process whereby the bro
ken metal oan be successfully brazed.
He has seoured patenta in thirteen
countries and has sold his rights in all
of these except Germany, where he
retains control himself. Companies
have been formed in these countries,
including the United States, and the
industry has proven so highly success
ful that other oom panics will be estab
lished in all the large towns.
This enterprise is known as the
American Brazing Company, with
headquarters in Philadelphia, lt is
proposed to appoint agents in all the
small towns and villages possessing a j
blaoksmith shop, and these shops will
be equipped for doing the work.
When a farmer, for instance, can take
his broken implement, machino, tool
or article of any description, construct
ed wholly or partly of oast iron and
have it speedily - ade as good as ever
he will certainly oonolude that a great
disoovery has been made. It is not
the enterprise of great magnitude that
is always or even generally of the
greatest usefulueBS to the farmer.

described confer a great benefit every

of his flock to console a djing man:

arrived just a few minutes after he
was dead. One of the members of my
church had been with him, however,
and to him I expressed my regret that
the man had died without spiritual
" 'Oh, you needn't let that worry
you, parson,' he replied cheerfully.
'I gave him all the spiritual consola

"Well, brother, what did you say
to him?"'! asked.
" 'Well, I began something like
this: 'Bill Waters, you have been a
mighty wicked man, now, haven't
you?' An' ho says: 'Yee, Jim, 1
