A Lawyer's Adventure.
About three er four years ago, more
or less, I was practising law in Illinois
on a pretty Isrge circuit. I was called
one day in my office, in tho twon of
C , by a very pretty woman, who,
not without tears, told me her husand
had been arrested for horse stealing.-
She wished toreteinme on the defense.
I asked her why she did not go to Judge.

to risk the case, before a jury. She
seemed to observe my intention to re
