It is said of Patrick Henry that dur
ing his practice of law In the Virginia
courts and when he was familiarly ad
dressed as --governor" a man who had
been arrested for stealing a hog and
who was out on ball went to the gov
ernor to have him defend him.
The governor saId. "Did you walk
away with that shoat?"
"1 dont't like to say."
-Out with it."
"Hlave you 'ot the careass?"
'-You go home, you wretch, cut the
pig lengthwise in half and hang as
much ot it in my smokehouse as you
keep in yours."
At court the governor said, "Your
honor. this wan has no more of that

A Lincoln Story.
When Lincola. a struggling lawyer,
was doing circuit duty In Ohio he
once visited a country town where the
general storekeeper had the reputation
of adulterating, even to the danger
point, his cider. In the midst of a
genera! condemnatlor. of this store
keeper Lincoln rose one night from his
seat by '.he hotel stove.
'Come on. boys." he said.
And he led a party of a half dozen
lawvyers and judges to the general
-Let nie have a quart of cider." he
said to the storekeeper.
"Yes. sir." was the cordial reply.
'-And which grade, sir-the ripe, at 3
cents; the mellow, at 2. or the new, at
"It doesn't matter which grade, mis
ter" Lincoln drawled. "I only want
to poison a dog."
The Inventor of the Match.
The first match wUs the product of
the ingenuity of John Frrederick Komn
erer, who early in the nineteenth cen
tury was Impriso'ned in the peniten
tIary- at Hohenasperg, in Germany.
Hie invented tbe lucifer match while
la his gloomy dungeon. The German
government forbade the manufacture
of matches on the ground of public
policy because some children playing
with them had caused a tire. Komerer
was ruined by Viennese competition
when he was released from prison and
died a pauper. Up to ISG2 the VIenna
manufacturers controlled the match
business of the entire world.
A Way Out.

"In acient days." said the pedantle

A story of a pair of anchors Is told
in the book entitled "To Kalrwan the
Kairwan is the Mecca of the west
It is a city so sacred that women are
allowed to move about In it but very.
little. One of the interesting sights
is the Mosque of Emir Ben Said Bon
Mnphtah. This mosque, with its six
melon shaped domes, Is the tomb of
a most amusing old Moslem who died
about the middle of the last century.
He had great power over the bey and
managed affairs according to his own
pleasure. This Moslem got possession.
In Tunis of four large anchors which
probably belonged to some old men-of
war abandoned on account of stress of
weather. The gentleman with the long
name was not content with any such
prosaic explanation of their origin. By
means of the labor of 500 Arabs he
had the anchors dragged from Tunis
and deposited in front of his house.
The transportation took five months.
He then declared them to be the an
chors by which Noah fastened the ark
to Mount Ararat The relics are Dow
in the mosque of their former owner
and are regarded as holy.
His Rules of Golf.
A 'awyer of considerable prominence
took up the game of golf. Some of
his friends volunteered chapters of
advice. while another presented to the
beginner a book of rules. After com
pleting his first round the counselor
was asked if be had mastered the
rules. The perspiring lawyer realized
the sarcasm of the remark, but proved
equal to the occasion. "The rules? Oh.
they are quite simple." he replied.
"There are two I know of, and to my
mind they are the most imp.tant
You must hit the ball with your club.
and after you have hit It you must
find it. of course, before you hit it
again. It will take an honest man sev
eral weeks to master these two rules.
After driving the ball you must hit it
wherever It lies. Good lies are as im
portant in golf as In fishing. LosWing
a ball costs you two strokes and the
price of the ball. Ritting a caddie
with the ban is justifable homicide."

Two Convincing Reasons.
Lord Peterborough, who lived in the
reign of Queen Anne, was very frolic
some, and one day, seeing from his
carriage a dancing master with peari
colored stockings lightly stepping over
the broad stones and picking his way
in extremely dirty weather, he alight
ed and raw after him with drawn
sword in order to drive him into the
mud, but into which he of course fol
lowed himself. This nobleman was
once taken for the Duke of Marlbor
ugh and was mobbed In consequence.
The duke was then in dlsgrace with
the people. and Lord Peterborough
was about to be roughly handled
Turning to them, he said:
"Gentlemen. I can convince you by
two reasons that I am not the Duke of
Marlborough. In the first place. I have
only 5 guineas in my pocket, and, In
the second, they are heartily at your
Patroness of Music.
The origin of music is los- in an
tiquity. Among civilized people It Is
probably to be traced to the ancient
Egyptian priests, who employed this
art in their religions rites and cere
moniesr. From the Egyptians the
Greeks and the Romans derived their
knowledge of music. The ancient He
brews probably took with them into
Palestine some of the songs they had
learned in Egypt. The hymns used In
the temple formed the basis of the
melodies of the early Christian church,
and from these hymns was formulated
the rst authoritative musical system.

The Spit Snake.
There is a snake belonging to the
small family causidae. inhabiting A
rica, that is said to have the power of
ejecting its venom to a short distance.
This snake is called by the Dutch
Boers "spuw slang." or spit srnake.
When this snedke erects its teeth the
pressure of the maxillary bone on the
gland causes the venom to flow In
drops, and it may be quite poNeu
that by discharging air from Its mouth
the poison may be blown soZn dis
The origin of the people known as
gypsies remains largely a mystery.
Egypt, India. Persia and Arabia have
in turn been pointed out as their origi
nal country. but there Is little defi
nite knowledge on the subject The
weight of evidence Is in favor of their
having originated in India. They irst
appeared in Europe about 1400 and
from the Danube region spread all
over the continent, appearing In Eng
land about 1520.
