WANTED AN HONEST OPINION
Client Made It Worth Lawyer's While
to Tell Him the Real Facte
. In the Cate.
'A client went into a lawyer's office
and said that he had a grievance
with his neighbor and wanted to go
to law. Hp stated all the circum
stances of the case and counsel list
ened attentively. Tho case fully stat
ed, tho client asked :
"Well, thoso are tho facts. Do
you think I'm in tho right safe
enough to win if I ao to law with
"If tho facts are as stated you cer
tainly have got a case. If I wore in
your case 1 should begin suit, an
swered the lawyer.
"And how much would your fee bo
for taking the case and pushing it
"Oh, I'll sec it through for you
for a hundred dollars.
The client produced from an in
side pocket a well-worn wallet, from
which he extracted a roll of bills and
peeled off one hundred dollars.
"There," said he, "that's yours
Ifs your fee. That's all you'd get
if you tried the case. Now, without
doing any work on it at all, just tell
me, honestly, whether I've got any
chance of winning the case."
HOW BIG' FISH ARE WEIGHED
Gloucester Shad Fisher Gives Tip
the Way the Trick Is Done
Down His Way.
Capt. Thomas Bennett, who man
ages the mile-long seme at the fa
mous Gloucester beach shad fisheries
in the Delaware, south of Philadel
phia, says most big fish are weighed
as a friend of his once was.
"lily friend," he states, "was tak
ing a walk one morning after a se
vere illness. As he trudged along
he saw an acquaintance, a coal deal
er, standing beside his .scales.
"'Just give me my weight, will
your asked my friend. L would
like to see how much my illness has
pulled me down.'
'"Weight, Bill,' called the dealer
to the clerk inside.
"'And then the clerk, thinking
that a ton of coal had been carted on
the platform, sang out: 'Twenty-
four hundred, just! "
The Madonna lily, which has been
cultivated in northern Europe since
1596, is indigenous to the Levant.
Moreover, its natural blooming time
there is ound about the average cel
ebration of Easter. No one knows,
of course, but it is not at all unlikely
that when the first Easter dawned
this lily was disclosing its lovely
white chalices in Palestine. If this
were not a substantial enough claim
for the Madonna lily, there is its
constant appearance jn religious
paintings and ecclesiastical decora
tions to show that it was, and is, the
church's sacred lily. It is, in fact, a
flower fairly steeped in religious
sentiment. Magazine Flowers.

SHEEP'S LONG FAST.
While going his rounds on the
grazing grounds on Bleasdale Fells,
Lancashire, England, one rei
morning, a farm bailiff noticed his
dogs soratching vigorously, endoav
oring- to remove the romains of a
large snowdrift. The bailiff cleared
away tho snow and found a sheep
which had been missing nine days.
The animal must have been impm
oned for that period, but oxcopting
that it was ravenously hungry it was
little the worse for tho experience.

"We havo already adverted to th
ments in northern Africa as disprov
ing tho long-assorted proposition
that tho stone age had not existed
0n tho African continent, says
writer in Harper's Monthly Maga
zine. In addition to this we may
state, that within a few years past
similar objects have been found in
South Africa, over an area extending
a thousand miles from tho. Cape of
Good Hope. It is still believed, how
ever, that the modern inhabitants of
Africa, even at the time of their first
discovery by the whites, were unac
quainted with the use of stone for
weapons; and it is therefore asserted
that these implements must have
been employed Tjy a race anterior to
that of the present day, of whose
ethnological character we can at
present form no conception.

John Stuart Mill defines the "phil

conceptions of history, considered as
whole; certain notions of a progres

hunianity; of a tendency of man and
society toward some distant and defi

were, of humanity." This, as op
