Effect of Eloquence on Kentucky
"The most peculiar verdict that
was ever given in a criminal case was
rendered in the Boyle circuit court
many years ago, and still stands on
the records of that court." said a
lawyer from Danville.
"R. J. Breckinridge. formerly attor
ney-general of Kentucky. was one of
the ILwyers in the case. It was just
at the close of the war. Judge Breck
inridge had been captured during the
war and had been in prison for some
weeks, so he was familiar with the
inside of a penitentiary. The case
about which I am talking was that
of a man who had been indicted for
shooting and killing a horse, the
property oi Jim Harlan. At that
time the crime was a felony, punish
able by confinement in the peniten
tiary for from one to five years. The
case went to trial and the evidence
showed that the defendant was un
doubtedly guilty, and when the evi
dence was all in and court adjourned
for dinner. Judge Breckinridge de
cided that his case was hopelessly
" 'Talk to the jury.. Mr. Bob,' said
the defendant. The judge thought it
was a useless waste of energy, telling
his client that they would necessarily
convict him. But finally he agreed
to make a speech. When court re
inconvened Judge Breckinridge began
his speech. He did not touch on the
evidence at all, but confined himself
solely to painting the horrors of a
penitentiary. He told of the dark
ness, the loneliness and the pangs
which attack a man confined in what
to him is a tomb. The jurors did
not remain long, but returned with
this verdict, which was read by the
" We, the jury, find that the de
fendant shot Jim Harlan's horse, but
not as charged in the indictment.'
"This verdict entitled the defendant
to his freedom, being in effect an ac
quittal. It was reported on the re
cords and can be found there today."
I have a new candidate for ad
mission to the English language,"
said the literary man as he recently
left the Franklin Inn with a friend
and turned into Thirteenth street.
"A new word?" asked the friend.
The literary man nodded.
"W\hat is it?"
"Yes. Lord Avebury is the coin
e and I think he has supplied the
proverbial 'long felt want.' We have
'nowhere,' 'somewhere,' 'anywhere,'
'elsewhere,' and 'everywhere.' Why,
then, not 'manywhere?'"
"But that's just it. We've had all
the other compounds of where-our
language seems to have a special
weakness for them-and if there was
a speacial want for this one we'd
have had it long ago. Where would
you use it?"
"Where? Oh, manywhere. The
newspapers could use it constantly
in the headlines nowadays-'Japanese
Landings Manywhere.' "
Treated Only Now and Then.
The Baron deSt. Marc was one of
the distinguished patrons' of the At
lantic City Horse show. On a certain
afternoon there, apropos of charity,
he said, according to-'the Philadelphia
"In London I was walking down
New Bond street when a beggar ap
proached me, led by a dog on a string
" 'y dear fellow,' I said, as I
fished a threepenny bit from my
pocket,.'you are blind, aren't you?'"
"'Yes, your honor,' he answered,
"'Have you ever been treated?' I
"'Only now and then sir,' said the
beggar. 'Folks are mostly too proud
to be seen goin' into taverns with the
likes o' me.'"
