THE TRIUMPH OF JUSTICE
How the Trial of Cases in Our American Courts Is
Expedited with Credit and Dispatch.

what she was christened, and the family bible would
be the best evidence."
"I withdraw the question. What are you com
Objected to on the ground that it is not shown
that the witness is an expert on "common callings."
"I will change the form of the question—what
name are you known by?"
Objection on the ground that it is hearsay, that it
is immaterial; not original evidence, and that no
foundation has been laid for it by showing that the
witness has any name.
Objection sustained. Exception noted.
"Have you a name?"
"What is it?" Same objections.
After argument, question allowed. Exception.
"My name is Mrs. Mary Smith."
Request to expunge the answer from the record
because it is not shown that the witness is married,
nor that her husband's name is Mary Smith. An
swer stricken out.
"Are you married?"
Objected to as secondary evidence, on the ground
that it has not been shown that the marriage certifi

question of marriage is not involved. Objection sus
"Have you been known by any other name than
Mrs. Mary Smith?"
Objected to as leading. Defendant's counsel asked
to be hen id on this matter, but the question was al
lowed—lie seemed tnueh elated.
The witness theu answers, "Yes, Mary Jones."
Defendant's counsel moved to strike out the last
part of the answer on the ground that it was not re
sponsive. Motion granted.

As many hours as Jonah's days within the spacious fish

A regular visitor is Osgar, the
tall boy of the "Osgar und Adolf"
farce-comedy. Osgar dropped in
looking for Adolf, but his old side
partner had escaped down the
laundry chute just as Osgar came
in. Osgar treated the office with
some of his keen wit that cuts like
a meat axe—especially whne
hacking away at dear little Adolf.
Osgar admits that he mortally
loves Adolf, and this affection is
mutually resented. Osgar has few
faults, it seems, beyond a mer
curial temperament that is con
tinually beating out its brains
against the cold stone wall of
Adolf's inflexible density. There
fore no one can feel very sorry for
Osgar if he breaks his blamed

I The Times Daily Short Story
THK GKKATEST SCULPTOR
By H. H. Hudson.
For obvious reasons it will be
best not to reveal my name, I
will furthermore state that the
authorities would disturb the
quiet of my declining years if
they knew what I know. The
game I played is worth the telln
For 30 years I served as a
funeral director In one of our
largest cities. I became skilled
In the art of embalming, but this
was not enough. I made a pro
found study of chemistry and was
at last rewarded. I discovered a
compound which, Injected after
death, left the body intact, its
substance being slowly replaced
molesule for molecule by a min
eral formation. I had discover
ed the art of rendering a dead
body permanent by patrification.
The mummies of ancient Egypt
were not to be compared with my
product. For my purpose the
sculptor was eliminated. I could
produoe the real, with every fea
ture retained as at death.
As I say, I had followed the
business of undertaking for 30
years. I had also kept bookß,
and knew where my subjects lay,
I found solace in the the thought
that I was preserving the disting
uished dead. I knew that my
time would come and that there
would be a better way than work
ing over a block of marble. My
work would surpass that of
JMihliiis. People had »lways long
ed to see their friends again. I
would give them the opportunity.
I went about my work rapidly
•—even furiously. The years
passed quicker than I knew.
While I was an undertaker I was
a sculptor in a larger sense. There
was pleasure in the careful prep
aration of each subject for the
tomb, the bodies being placed in
natural, graceful and artistic posi
tions. My work would be epoch
making. The time finally came
for me to assume my new role. I
closed out my business and left
town. After spending some time
abroad, I disguised myself and
returned, opening up a. marble
cutter's shop near the entrance
of the old cemetery where many
of my subjects had been quietly
sleeping for years.
It was not difficult to start my
business, for I had preserved my
records and knew where to so
licit patrons. I enlisted the ser
vice of a couple of trusted cron
ies. Then, going among the de
scendants of ttte old and disting
uished families, I sought out
photographs, telling my custom
ers that for a reasonable consid
eration I would furnish busts of
life-sized figures of their ances
It seemed to thorn marvelous
that a man could produce a statue
from a photograph, but my work
began to convince the most skep
tical. The mounting and polish
ing was all done secretly, and no
one was permitted to enter the
shop. I had orders from other
cities, but of course had to con
fine myself to the subjects I had
As time went on the various
cemeteries began to show the re
sult of my handiwork, and there
were few tombs which were not
adorned with a life-sized figure
or bust. I terminated my labors
by entering into a larger contract.
Several public spirited men had
taken a great Interest in my work
and a movement was soon on
foot to place life-sized statues of
distinguished city fathers and
benefactors on pedestals about the
public buildings. I took the con-
ALMOST A MIRACLE. 1
One of the most startling
changes ever seen in any man, ac
cording to W. B. Ilolsclaw, Clar
endon, Tex., was effected years
ago in his brother. "He had such
a dreadful cough," he writes,
"that all our family thought he
was going into consumption, but
he began to use Dr. King's' New
Discovery, and was completely
cured by ten bottles. Now he is
sound and well and weighs 218
pounds. For many years our fam
ily has used this wonderful rem
edy for Coughs and Colds with
excellent results." It's quick,
safe, reliable and guaranteed.
