evening;" but I wasn't going to lie caught
speaking, because you have to pav a forfeit if
you iooak. So I just walked right in and
milled o!T my overcoat and hung it up, anil
hung my hat on the hat-rack. Tho man lookod
a little bit antioved, but he aked me if the
weather was noi softeniug nn a little. I ninilod
but didn't say anything, and I walked into the
sitting-room. I thought I was the first one
there, and I felt very awkward. The man
watehed me pretty eh ie, and finally he said I
had tho advantage of him, and I smiled again,
but didn't say anything Now that I think of
it, I noticed that he unbtittonr-d bil
shirt sleeves and ligan to roll them up.
I did not think of it at the
time, but his arms were as big as rny leps. He
asked me to what cirettmstsur-o'he was in
debted for the honor of this visit, and! thought
he was trying to get mo off my guard so I
would speak, when they would have the laugh
on me; so 1 smiled one of my best two-for a
quarter smiles, and looked at him as much ai
to say, 'You can't play any of your games on
the undersigned.' I think he was the ornesl
man that I ever saw, and 1 wondered what
mads the committee have the mum sociable al
his house. I thought it was time some of ths
rest of the rest of the crowd were coming, and
I got tin and went to the window to lolt out,
when the man came up beside me and hissed
in my ear, 'What is your little game, anv wav."
Well, I wasn't going to spak, and give myself
away, so I looked at hurt sort of ' im

He took ms by the throat with one hand, and
by the vicinity of the coat tail with the other

San Francisco Chronicle.
A writer thus describes the coiicltiKlnn of a
rase in which Burr was one of tho lawyers:
Tho evening session opened and Burr resumed
his cross-examination of tho witness. It was a
test of the profound skill and sobriety of the
lawyer, the self-possession, courago and tact
of the witness standing on tho very brink of a
horrible gulf firmly and intrepidly resisting the
efforts of the wrriblo man to topplo him over.
At last, after dexterously leading tho witness to
an appropriate point, Burr suddenly seized a
lamp tu each hand, land holding them in such a
maimer that their light fell instantaneously
upon the face of ths witnoss, he exclaimed in it
startling voice, like tho voice of tin) avenger of
blood: "Gentlemen of tho Jury, behold tho
With a wild, convulsive start, a face of ashy
pallor, eyes starting from their sockets, lips
apart, his whole attittulo evincing terror, the
man sprang from his chair. For a moment ho
stood motionless, struggling to recover his
self-possession. But it was only a momentary
struggle, shaking every nerve with paralyzing
fear. Conscious that tho eves of all iii tho
court room were fixed upon' him, rending the
hidden deeds of his life, he left the witness
stand and walked shrinkiiigly to Iho door of
the court room. But he was prevented from
making his esca no by the sheriff. The effect
can be belter imagined than described. It
struck tho spectators with silent awe, chang
ing the whole aspect of the trial in an instant,
overthrowing tho hypothesis of tho attorney
general, whieh ho was convinced would send
tho prisoner to the gallows, saving an Innocent

"You'd take her for a gypsy, wouldn't you?"
said one of Justice Naeher's court attendants
yesterday morning, when a woman who de
scribed herself as Annie Devino of 70 Tillary
street, Brooklyn, was arraigned to answer fur
obtaining J.) and a silk handkerchief from Miss
Bridget Connors, a domestic, employed at 7s
Taylor street, Williamsburg "Hut she isu't,"
he continued. "Shu's on a sort of a new racket

The Wrong Cicero.
Detroit Freo Press,
When the present state military law was a
bill before tha legislature a representative ono
day took John Harmon, tho lobbyist, aside and
offered him i'Jto write him "a thundering good
speech" in opposition to the bilL John hadn't
time, and the Solon took in each one of tho re
porters with an offer of t i.'st without finding a
taker. In despair ho then returned to Harmon
"See hero, John, I've got to make a speech
opposing that bill. My constituents are down
on it, aud if I don't oppose it I'll get in a box.
What shall I do? Can't you give mo some

Cicero. He was opposed to all military force,

"Woll, Shakespearo wielded a pen while

"That's so that' so. That will be an old

It is a condition of mind and an attitudo of
the moral powers which thero is much in our
modern atmosphere that combines to repro
duce. I may not undertake hero to draw tho
portrait of the times in which we of to-day aro
living. But as a traveler may note the features
of a landscape through which he is passing,
though ho cannot describe with accuracy in
'ool.igical formation, so may any serious ob
ao.'ver detect the atmosphore of tho generation
'h rough w hich he Is living. For one I venttuo
o atllrm that it is au atmosphere singularly
discharged of high enthusiasms, With what
strango and mizzled feeling one reads,
for instance, of tho F.uglish and American ar
dor sixty years ago in the struggle with tho
((reeks' fur liberty. Nobody then to Tunis,
to F.gypt, to the' resetio of the Jews in
liitsnia'iu our owu generation. There is almost
no great ardor, In fact, about anything any
more. It U not "good form" to be ardent or
enthusiastic in any interest, however serious
or lofty. The first aim of life is to get tho
glint of tiro out of your oyo, and the ring of
deeper feeling out of youf voice. The only
place w here vehemence aud Impassioned ex
pression are permissible any longer is in con
nection with purely dramatic representations,
and only there because it is perfectly well un
derstood that nothing serious is meant by it.
The first thing that many young persons are
taught in our days is to stifle all earnest exhi
bitions of feeling, and to affect a languid and
critical Indifference. And the next Is, on all
occasions and in all companies, and concerning
all subjects, no matter how far above them, to
cultivate a mannerism of opinion which is all,
like Mr. Whistler's pictures, in low tune with,

There is a class of men here, writes a Pari
correspondent, such as I never encountered
elsewhere a man who loads a perfectly up
right, honorable kfe in business, whoso inter
course with his follow -men is all that the
promptings of strictest honor could suggest,
whoso homo life is truthful, honorable aud lib
eral, but who takes great pleasure in going
alone to the Liedei krauz.the Arion, the French,
and, in fact, all the masked balls. Ho goes for
no special purpose, except to have a good time.
He pyts flt)0 or i.'(X) in his pocket,expoctiug to
spend it before he leaves the academy. The
freedom of s mask permits) him to addreeeor to
be spoken to by any person In the asaemblaga.
(ioing to the wi'ne-roora alone he finds a fellow
broker or merchant, and with him fakes a bot
tlo of wine. L'pon the door or in the dance or
on tho corridors he accosts a mask, aud with
her repairing to tho wine-room takes a bottle)
of wine or more, as the case may be. Consign
ing her to her escort, he Books others, or is
sought by othors, with tho same result If ho
is fund of dancing he joins a group of maskors,
and together they dance the sober quadrille,
tne fasvunating waltz, or tne mraiuttn can
can. It does not Boom to make much differ
ence how old the man is. I have seen bald
headed, gray-bearded old fellows indulging
in this thing! ituitatod more or less success
fully by men with more nair ami loss
money. to one who calmly stands ami
coolly criticises, these men appear to be at
tho acme of follv. They certainly throw
away their money, and would seem to be in
danger of losing their heads, but the next day
they turn up smiling and attend to thuir busi
ness in tl,e most decorous and proper manner.
They are in no sonse changoiL They hava
seen life; they have unbent a trifle, but after
a good night's rest and a bottle of soda in ths
morning they are as they were. There are
hundreds of men, well knowu in club circles
here, who never think of taking wife or
daughter or other lady to these balls, who go
in groups, io parties, or possibly alone, know
ing that they will meet scores of their ao
quuinuineoa there, with whom they can havo a
joliy good time. What effect all this is to have
upon the morals of the ooinmuuity, which not
only tolerates but looks upon it approvingly, is
not" for me to say.

I have been trying to get to the funny pari
for a long timo, and, although there are a lot
of interesting things swimming in my mind,
I am going to put them aside and return
to my saddlo of mutton. Let us suppose, Mr.
Kditor, that you are a senator or representa

pose you are a cabinet o(Hcor,or on the supreme
court bench. You are popular (of course)
and sought for and invited to every swell ta
ble. Ou Mouday yon have a lovely dinner at
Secretary Molar a. When you dine with Sen
ator Incisor on Tuesday.you are surprised that
you have precisely the same dinner that you
had tho dav before. On Weduesday you
are at .fudge Woolsack's tha same old
dinner again, with, possibly, the same
china, the sai tlower stands, and ths
same waiters beyond a doubt the same wait

Tonguey's, on Thursday, and find the same
waiters, the same soup, the same fish, the same
fillet, tho same old miserable sweet breads and
peas, the same form of ice cream, and the
same cheeso aud crackers, you begin to foel
like the professional quail eater. Of course

An amusing story is told by Dr. Oulich of a
company of missionaries on one of tho Micro
nesiau isjands, in the I'aoiflo ocoan. Aftet
having been left a year without tidings from
home, thoy heard that ft mall had arrivod for
them on one of the neighboring islands. They
hastened to the place, and asked the chiefs

buiidlo of mail matter letters and papers from
American friends was brought forward. Ao
cording to Polynesian otiquotte, presents wivre
given to tho chiefs, a long conversation f',1
