At one of U10 sessional divisions of
Dorsetshire, England, a certain well-
known tradesman was summoned for
'killing and taking" a pheasant He
waa defended by the Gcorgo Lewis of
the neighborhood and acquitted, the
magistrate remarking that it was dis
graceful to subject a respectable man
to Buch a prosecution. 00 delighted
was tbe defendant at the result that he
insisted on his advocate dining with
bim. In duo course a pheasant was put
on the tablo, and it was pronounced to
be a most excellent bird. "Yes," said
the host, "this is tho bird that it has
been clearly proved to-day I did not
kill or take"1'

How Boy's Marbles are Made.
Almost all the "marbles" with
which boys everywhere amuse them
selves in season and out of season, on
sidewalks and in shad), spots, am
made at Oberstcin, tioriiiany. There
are large agato quarries and mills in
that neighborhood, and the refuso is
turned to good account in providing
tho email stono balls for experts to
"knuckle" with. The, stono is brokon
into small cubes, by blows of a light
hammer. These small blocks of stono
are thrown by tho shovelful into tho
honper of a small mill, formed of a
bedstone, having its surface- grooved,
with concentrate furrows; above this
is the "runner," which is ofsonio hard
wood, having a level face on its lowor
Biirliice. The upper block is made to
revolve rapidly, water being delivered
upon tho grooves of the bed stono
where the marbles aro being rounded.
It takes about fifteen minutes to finish
half a bushel of good marbles, ready
for tho boys' knuckles. Ono mill will
turn out 1G'J,(XK) marbles per week.
Tho very hardest "crackers," as tho
boys call tlipm, are made by a slower
process, somewhat analogous, howev
or, to tho other.
In coining $20,000,000 in silver and
$22,000,000 in gold at tho Snn Francis
co mint iu thcro wero lost only
