hriing Experience of Two Lawyers with
From the San Francisco Cal.
In the foothills of Sonoma county,
not maur miles from the town of
Petaluma, there is a neat, cosy country
house, built on a knoll. It is covered
with climbling roses, white, pink and
yellow, carefully trained, and ihe
foilage and blossom is here and there
intertwined with jessimline and Eng
lish honeysuckle. From a broad por
tico in front of the building one ob
tains a view that is enchanting. At
the foot of the g-rassy slope that leads
to the dwelling runs a silvery stream,
in the pools of which disport the beau
tiful and speckled trout. This place,
one of the iost pleasant in that sec
tion of the county, is the home of the
Lawlers, the parents of Judge Lawler,
of the police court of this city. When
ever the Judge seeks relaxation from
official cares, he takes a run up to that
home to inhale pure country air and
expunge from his lungs the foul dust
laden atmosuihere of his court. One
Saturday a few weeks since he sta:-ted
Sonomaward, and on the train fell in
with one of the legal lights who
practice in the criminal courts--a gen
tleman noted for the eloquence which
time and again has entranced the occu
pants of the back seats of the police
"Judge," said Judge Lawler, ex
tending the hand of friendship to him,
"on your way into the country for a
"Yes, your honor," responded the
party addressed, who, at one time.,
hung over the door of a primitive
shanty in Carson, in the early days of
the Comstock excitement, a shingle.
on which was traced in rude charac
ters, the awe-inspiring words: "Offiee
of the Justice of the Peace.-M. Burns,
"If you have no particular objective
point, and would like to stay over
Sunday," said Judge Lawler, "come
up with me, and if you are fond of
hunting, we'll go up in the hills to
morrow and seek the jack rabbit, the
cotton-tail, and if we don't happen to
cite a deer we may run across a bear."
"Judge, you honor me; I was about
to offer an excuse, butwhen you spoke
of the possibility of meeting a bear,
then you touch me in a tender spot,
and I will avail myself of your kind
uness," said Judge Burns, his rubi
cund face shining smiles. "Do von
know, Judge," continued he, "that if
there is anything upon which I pride
myself it is bear-hunting. I have
.spent hours following the trail of some
monster bruin in the canyons of the
Sierra, and Indian-like, have sneeked
up to him and plunged the deadly
bowie into him or sent a bullet from a
nininie rifle or six-shooter crashing
through his brain. Oh, its glorious
sport. Just show me, Judge, where
there is a bear trail and I'll show von
some rare sport."
The journey was finished, and bright
and early on Sunday the two jurists
started on their moraing peregrination
in the shadv wildwoods in the rear of
the Lawler: home, each carrying arms
of the most improved patterl.
"There, your honor," said Judge
Burns, suddenly striking an attitude
and bringing a rifle en jeu, "that's the
position to strike when you see a
"And as you speak," said Judge
Lawler, "if I am not mistaken, there
is a bear trail 'on the road in front of
"Them.s bear prints," said Judge
Burns, who got down on his knees to
examine them. While speaking he
chanced to raise his head, and fifty
yard from him, moving leisurely along,
he saw a bear of the cinnamon species,
and, without changing his position,
uttered in an undertone, "Judge, run
to cover; the bear's comning!"
Judge Lawler crossed the road at a
jump, and never stopped till he reached
the top of the most convenient pine.
On his way up, finding that a fowling
piece was an incumbrance in lively
climbing, he allowed it to drop to the
ground. When he had reached a
place of safety and was resting from
the exertion of ascending without
"ladder or steps, he looked around for
his valiant companion, the great bear
hunter of the Sierra, and failed to see
the Judge, but observed on the ground,
at the point where he had last seen the
irresistible nimrod, the rifle which the
Jud~ had carried. Close to the dis
weapon was the cinnamon
mnonster th tbe-shaggy coat, pacing
the road from one side to the other.
Judge Lawler's first thought was that
the bear- had swallowed his comupanion,
but almost simultaneously his fears
were relieved by the voice of his van
ished companion exclaiming, in fright
"For God's sake, Judge, don't move,
or he'll be up the tree after us."
Turning in the direction of the voice,
Judge Lawvler saw the nimrod of the
Sierra astride of a branch of an adja
cent oak, which was quivering like an
"Why don't you shoot him?:" queried
the police judge.
"I can't," camne the tremulous an
swer; "my rifle's in the road, and inv
pistol dropped out of ray pocket as ~I
was making for this branch. I wonder
if he can climb?"
Just thien the bear put his paws
against the tree and reared up as if
about to answer the question, and the
nimrod of the Sierra fled up with a
'yell to the topmost twig of the oak,
where lie hung like a woodpecker.
Several bour-s were spent in this de
]ightful fashion, each jurist wildly
hugging his tree, while the bear passed
from one to the other, ever antI anion
making a feint to climb, and once in a
while amusing himself by pawing the
firearms that lay on the ground. At
length, just as the brute took a notion
to move off out of sight in the brush,
a farmer was seeni coming down the
Sroad, and he was haled with "Alh,
~ere," to which camne the well known
reply, "stay there."
"That's just what we don't want to
do," i nrlied -1 ulge llurns.
"Maybe sorre of you fellers haven't
seen a cinnaraocn bear around here,
have vou?" asked the farmer.
"Maybe we have," mournfully r
plied Judge Durns, ''and may be we
haven't been kept up here for three
bzoars by that ferocious brute."
The farmier chuckled and then called I
"Here. Junm; here, Jim," whereupon
the bear starte.I in his direction the
same as a pet dog would bave done,
and the farmer- tturned, followett by his<
bear, iut before going lie reimarked :
"Getlemen, thats a ref bear I raised
'since a cub.;mnd vwouldn't hurt a baby.
I'm mutch obliged to you for not hay- 2
ing shot at him. Good day."
The two jurists descended from thieir
places of safety, and registered a sol- l:
emun vow to preserve the story a gr-im
secret all the days of their lives; but ti

A DISGUACEFUL PICTURE.
How the Inmatcn of the St. Loute Workhouse
An afternoon paper in St. Louis. Mo.
itublishes a lonr sensational article which
chiims to be a faithful report of the inside
mn:aement of the St. Louis Workhouse.
The gist of the publication is as follows:
NoTinally a prisoner is allowed 50 cents a
day for his work, but by arbitrary :nd
Mean deductions this is reduced to 30 or 40
cents. For instance. no pay is given f'
Sundav and one half of Saturday's pay is
deducted to sustain the expense of the
alleged superior food which is furnished on
that day. Once a week all of the white
pr1,1soners, numibering. about 200C. are re
guir<.d to hathe in one tank 65 feet long,
froma wh Wiich the water is never drawn until
the whole number have washed tlemselvcs
in it. Not : few of them are :illicted with
dlisgusting diseases, while others are coy
cred with ulcers and running sores. which
are by means of the haths connici(atedt
to the unaillieted. The 50 negroes are re
<ired to bathe in the s:ne manner. though
in a tresh supply of water. :and the whole
250 are furnished with but four towels.
The cells in which they are confined when
not at work are 12 by 15 feet in size, and
into each are crowded eight ien. In a
case of sickness the patient is placed in a
cell of inferior accommodations, in which
are also contined the insane patients and
those of the newcomers for whom room
cannot be found or made in other cells.
The food at the workhouse is inferior in
quality and iusuiicient. the bread being
tot, hard to Cat and the coffee too weak it)
taste. The wat er given to the men to drink
while at their work is dipped from the cat
tIle trough. and the stone workers in the
quarries drink from the sue bucket as
the mules and horses. One of the worst
features of the inanagnement is the laxity of
discipline and the indifference of the war
den and guiards as to what the prisoners
say and do while unemployed. At the
noon hour. instead of the tmen being re
turned to their cells, they are hutled pro
niscuously into the corridors, where they
remain until called to their work. Htere,
huddled together, they eat that portion of
their dinner which they have been unable
to constme while at the table, throw the
refuse at each other, play cards, smoke.
scvcar, tight and indulge in the use of dis
gusting Uanage, all unrestrained by any
guard. In regard to the puniishmnent of
offenders against the workhouse rules the
writer says the prisoners may be either con
fined in the bull pen or dark cell or 'strung
up." The latter punishment consists of
hanging the offender up by the wrists and
keeping him in this position until obedience
to the rules is promised.

The costume worn by the Texas convict
is a disgrace to civilization. Convicts are
dressed in coarse plaid cloth with their
names printed on their backs in large let

with heavy ironis, going out to some farm
or wood campi, and very often we see thetm 1

are adorned with heavy chains locked se- E
