The wrkingof the British jury sys
Item exhIbits a marked contrast with
that of our own. It is possible t hat my
experience In British courts was ex
Iceptonal. but in not a single instance
did I see a juror challenged or reject
ed. In all of the courts requiring ju
ries the necessary number of men
were present, and they were sworn in
without question. In the sheriff's dep
uty court in Scotland the presiding
judge gave notice to the jury that he
expected to adjourn the court at 2
o'cockandstated that If they could
all remain until that hour be would at
once dismiss the men who had been
called for a second panel. The jurors
conferred together and decided to re
maIn till 1 o'clock. whereupon the
judge notified the other men to appear
at 12:30. The one jury impaneled for
the morning session rendered six ver
diets In eases involving prosecutions
for thefts. frand and burglary.
In the court of quarter sessIons at
Taunton. England. I saw a single jury
in one day render eleven verdicts. 1
found that It was customary in the
several sorts of court that I attended
for the same jury to act In successive
cases. In no instance did I see a jury
leave their seats to make up theIr ver
dict. Usually the issue before them
was made so plain that all who gave
attention knew in advance what the
decision would be. I made note of an
exceptIonal frntance of delay when the
court was forced to wait nine minutes
for the report of the jury. In this case
the judge who gave the Instructions
was himself In doubt as to what the
verdict ought to be.
A Scottish jury consists of fifteen
persons, and a majority may render a
verdict. In England the number is
twelve, and unanimity is required. But
1 noted no difference as to practical
results in thbe t wo countries. The
twelve men in the EnglIsh jury were
as prompt and certain in their action
as were the eight out of fifteen in the

Breaking Them to the Yoke.
Edwrd Lisle, whose "Observations
on Hus bandry" was published in 1757.
dscribed the method employed by his
"oxhind" or cattleman to break cattle
to the yoke: OHe yoked two of the
steers, being two yearlings. together
and so suffered them to walk about
th ground where there were no pits
or ditches for them to receive hurt by.
He also tied together the bushy parts
of their tails, the reason of which was
becuse they should not be able to
tr their beads to each other so as
to trike one another with their horns
or by bending their necks too much by
edeavoring to face one another and
ten striving break their necks." In
this condition the oxhind let them go
on the ground, if without holes or
dithes, all night or else turned them
into an empty open barn so yoked and
thus treated them two or three times
befre he worked them.
