Yea, t er day was almost a blank day
la Court- circles. Justice Burroughs
hud only throe or four cases on his
docket, besides drunks.
There was no business transacted In
the Cdrporation Court, excepting the
trial of a lew minor civil appealed
warrants of no interest to the public,
and the Court of Law and Chancery
was not In session. There were no suits
entered %or marriage licenses Issued.
Altogether there was a dearth of court
STOLE A LAP-ROBE.
It Is not an unusual thing for a
white person accused of then to lay
the blame on drink, and say that they
would not have committed the offense
if they had hot been under the in?
fluence of liquor, it is seldom, how?
ever, that a negro resorts to that plea.
They usually deny the charge or accuse
some one else. When Si Austin, u di?
lapidated and forlorn, looking" negro
was arraigned In the Police Court yes?
terday on the charge of stealing' a
I Jap-robe, valued at $13. the property of
Mr. James T hay er, from that gentle?
man's stables on Plume street, the
negro broke down completely, acknowl?
edged the crime, and pleaded to be let
oil* on the ground that whiskey did It;
that If he had not been drunk he never
would have committed the act. Justice
liurroughs did not think that tin- evi?
dence proved Austin to be sufficiently
intoxicated as to render him Irre?
sponsible, and His Honor sentenced
him to four months in Jail.
YOPNG GRIFFIN GUILTY.
It Is seldom that as intelligent, rofin- I

lug tin overcoat valued at .$20 and a.

erty of Mr. H. W. Sutherland, from

on Union street. The prisoner pleaded
i bard with Justice Burroughs to be given
lone more chance, and that he would
never fall Into temptation again, lie
: stilted that he bail relatives on the
Eastern Shore of Virginia, and would
leave the city and go to them if given
the chance. His Honor was undoubt?
edly touched by the young man's plead?
ings and promises, and hut for his high
sense of duty to the Commonwealth, he
would perhaps have yielded to Griltln'S
I petition; as it was. lie expressed sym?
pathy for the young man, but told him
that It was his duty as a. Judge to

Mr. Jones testified that Jackson came
Into his place en Thursday and. being
a. minor. Mr. Jones ordered him out
of Ills place. Jackson refused to go.
however, anil Mr. Jones, aided by his
colored porter, proceeded to put him
out. Later on Mr. Jones was about
to enter bis saloon, having come from
the residence part of the house. He
detected Jackson standing by the door
with a brick in his hand. Mr. Jones
demanded to know what he intended
to do with the brick, whereupon llic

CONSTABLE CARMINE GUILTY.
The nmst interesting case tried be?
fore Justice liurroughs yesterday was
tin- warrant under which Mr. .1. S. Car?
mine, one of the County Constables,
was tried for assault oil Mr. John A.
I.esner. Jr. A large number of witness?
es were in court, among them Judge 1>.
Tucker Brooke, ami most of the evi?
dence was In favor of Mr. I.esner. \t
torney w. A. s. Taylor, of Loyall *
Taylor, represented Mr. I.esner. and Mr.
Carmine conducted his own case. Mr.
I.esner testified that Mr. Carmine had
made threats against him on account
of his having cut a street down UCa.
the Constable's house, and that as he
was about to enter the ferry boat last
Tuesday, he met Mr. Carmine, who de?
manded lo know why he continued to
cut the street down and Injure his prop?
erly; that without waiting for a re?
ply, Mr. Carmine struck him over the
head with a cane, and fell as he struck
him. Judge Brooke and other witness?
es saw the cane In the air and saw Mr.
Carmine fall, but did not know who
struck the first blow. Mr. Carmine tes?
tified that he spoke to Mr. I.esner about
tile matter and that Mr. I.esner there?
upon struck him in tin- fnee. said Hck
being the first blow. Justice Burromrhs
thought the testimony proved that Mr.
Carmine was the aggressor and lined
him jl2.76, which the Constable paid.

Should" remember to use only .two?tfiIfirjs',
03 much Cottolcue as thoy formerly usCtl'
of lard or butter. With two-thirds; th<?
quantity they will get better results at less;
cost than it is possible to get with lard or'
butter. When Cottolcue is used for frying
articles that aroto be immersed, abit of bread should be dropped into it to
asiicrlain if it isitt the right heat. When the bread browns iu half a minute
the Cottolcue is,rcady. Never let Cottolcue get hot enough to smoke!
