Stories of surprises in crosz
examination were exchanged in
a small group of men the other
day, nearly all of which had beer
published in the newspapers,
and the following was sprung by
an Illinois man:
"Years ago one of the promi
nent lawyers of central Illinois
was D. G. Tunnicliff, afterwardz
justice of the State supremE
court. Tunnicliff was a grea1
wit and a very smooth article or
cross examination. He did noi
often get the worst of it froir
anybody. He seldom attempted
bulldozing in cross examination,
but could back an unwary mar
into almost any admission.
"One day Tunnicliff had ar
old farmer named Dave Browr
on the opposite side and the
value of the old man's testimony
depended upon his claim that he
could not read. It was beheved
that he could read a little and
Tunnicliff tried to trap him. Af
ter several adroit efforts which
old Dave neatly sidestepped, the
lawyer changed the subject and
wandered away from the lead
ing question. Suddenly he asked
"Have you a Bible in youi
home, Mr. Brown?"
"Yes, sir, a family Bible. Had
it for years."
"I am glad to hear that. Every
good man should have a BiblE
in his home. You use your Bible,
"Yes, sir. I use it regular."
"That's right. A good mar
should use his Bible often. Abou1
how often do you use you:
"Every Sunday morning, sir

is commendable. There is n(
