VtHERE NERO FELL. -
The Exact Spot Tolnted Oat by One Who
I was going over t"he battlefield of Win

to have witnessed the battlo and helped

certain spot on the Opequan he halted and
waved his band and said :

"Do yon mean to tell me that Xero of

Dat's what I'm a-sayin, sah.".
"Dut Xero was dead hundreds of yecrs

"Can't help dut, white man. Dis yere

"Do Yankee army, sah."

"Diggest kind of a pinerr:l, sah."
"My dear man, you have iot your his

who died over 1 ,S00 years agn, was present
at this battle?"
"I doan moan de Xero who died, of

this anecdote of a learned judge who used

bag. After a somewhat lengthy hearing,
the judge summed np to the jury thus:
"Gentlemen, the plaintiff claims damages
for the loss of his bag against the company.
