immense popularity among the reading

they have been translated into nearly all

A great many anecdotes are related regard
big the early courts, but tbe following from
"Ford's History" will serve to amuse the
reader and at the same tune show tbe wide -contrast
between the practice of the court,
then and now: - ' '
"ThA 1nHr.ni In aarlv tlmaa In Tlllnoia '
were gentlemen ot conaiderable learning.
In genera!, they wer. adverse to deckling
questiona of law. They never gave In- '
struotlona to a jury unleu expressly called
for, and then only on the points of law
raised by counsel asking for them. I know
one judffo who, when asked for instruc
tions, would rub bis head and the aide of
his face with his hand, u if perplexed, and
aay to the lawyers: 'Why, gentlemen, the
jury understand tbe case; they need no In- '
structlons ; no doubt they will do justice be
tween the parties.' This same judge pre
sided at a court in which a man named
Oreon was convicted of murdor, and it bo
came his unpleasant duty to pronounce een
UMice of death upon him. He called the
prisoner before him and said to him : 'Mr.'
Orocn, the jury In their verdict say you aro
guilty of murder, and tbe law says you are
to be hung. Sow, I want you and all your
friends down on Indian crock to know that
it ia not I who condemns you, but it is the
Jury and the law. , Mr. Green, the law al
lows you time for preparation, and so the
court wants to know what time you would
like to be hung!' To this tbe prisoner re
plied : 'May it please the court, I am ready
at any time ; those wbo kill the body have
no power to kill the soul; my preparation is
made and lam ready to suffer at any time
the court may appoint' Tbe judge then
said : 'Mr. Green, you must know that it la
a very serioua matter to be bung; it can
not happen to a man more than once in bis
life, and you bad better take all the time
you can get; the court will give you until
thin day four weeks. Mr. Clerk, look at ths
almanac and see whether this day four
weeka cornea on Sunday.' The clerk looked
at the almanac aa directed, aad reported
that that day four weeks catnoon Thursday.
The judge then said: 'Mr. Green, tbe court
gives you until this day four weeks, at
which time you are to be bung.' Tbe casa
wu prosecuteo. by James Turney, tbe Attorney-General
ot the Btate, wbo here in
terposed and said: 'May it please the court,
on solemn occaelons like tbe present, when
tbe life of a human being is to be sentenced
away tor crime by an earthly tribunal, it la
usual and proper for courts to pronounce a
formal sentence. In which tbe leading feat,
uroa of tbe crime shall bo brought to tbe
recollection of the prisoner, a sense of his
guilt impressed upon his conscience, and
in which tho prisoner should be duly ex
horted to repentance and warned against
the judgment in tbe world to come.' To
this the judge replied : 0, Mr. Turney, Mr.
Ureen understands the whole matter as
well as if I bad preached to him a month.
He knows he hu got to be hung this day
four weeks. You understand it In that way,
Mr. Green, do you notr 'Yes,' said tbe pris
oner, upon which the judge ordered him to
be remanded to jail, and tbe court then ad
journed." . ABOUT ELECTRICITY.
