In a recent paper appeared an account
of a ttrauge accident in w hich a man
was killed by the discharge of a gun
while lying asleep ou a lounge in his
room, the weapon being discharged by
reflected raji of t'le sun fulling upon
the cartridge chamber of the firearm.
Since the publication of the ttory a

concerning the accident and refers to a
similar case, in which, tbrongh the ef

Is one of the mot remarkable :u the
history of criminal inrifprnrience.
Iu June, 1SST. Charles Eusley, the
cousin of a man uf the name of Avery,
was killed in hit room while lying ou a
lounge, about i o clock in the after
noou. The weapon which caused the
death was a una 11 rifle, -ending a 82
caliber ball through Euley's braiu. No
one was in the house at the time but
Ensley. An empty rifle was found lying
ou a rack ou a wall of the room in which
the killing occurred, and the ballet tit

Avery was arrested for the crime, as
he was the ouly living close relative to
Ensley, and by his death profited to the
amnnnt of about 100.OOO. Avery was
tried, pleaded ur.t guilty, bnt was con
victed of murder in the first degree and
cuttuccd to be hanged. He appealed to
the supreme court and eugagvd Mr.
W'uIHs to defend him. The supreme

There is a well meaning old gentle
man in Boston who goes about in fair
weather or foul with an open umbrella
over his head. He is one of the notable
characters of the town, highly respected
as far as that goes, but pitied as the vic
tim of the delusion that a downpour is
always impending. The story is abroad
in Boston that he once got a terrible
drenching and contracted therefrom a
cold that threw him into a fever, out of

Tin Women's Legal Education sccie-
ty. one cf the best known of women's
swieties, had its origin in the philan-

of this city to establish u legal dispen

assistance gratuitously. Emily Keru

Kempin then nudertof.k to establish a
rehool or leetmeshin of law for women
nud succeeded so well that the Women's
Legal Education society was incorporat
ed on Juue 14, 1890. The object of the
society, as stated iu its bylaws, is "to
facilitate the stndy of law by Women,
both tks professional students aud also as
amateurs, intei-ested in law as a snbject
of general intellectual culture, and also
for Ihe sake of practical guidance in per
sonal and business affairs." Ten ladies,
who were to be the first directors, each
agreed to pay If 100 a year for four years
to provide the salary cf the lecturer.
In Ihe fall of Ifcyj ihe lectures were
begun under the sanction of the Univer
sity of tho City of New York and havo
been continued ever since. The lecturers
have been: Emilv Kempin, LL. D.,
1890 to 1891 ; Christopher . Tiede
mau, LL.' D., to 1892; Isaac
Franklin Russell, LL. D.; 193 to 1S!)5.
The lectures are delivered cu Mondays,
Wednesdays and Fridays, at 1 1 o'clock
a. in., during the winter months, and
are repeated in the evenings of those
days at H o'clock. This year the follow
ing ladies were appointed assistant lec

delivered during tho year, covering in

doctrine, and are followed by reviews
and an examination. To those who are
FucceFsful at tho examination the uni
versity grants a certificate signed by the
chancellor. Tho attendance at the lec
tnres has steadily increased. About one-
half of the regularly enrolled students
apply for tha chancellor's certificate on
examination. In 1 S01. 14 certificates
were issued; iu 1892, 15; in 1893, 23;
iu 1894, 29, and in 1895, 48, mak

How Schweninger Trained Bismarck.
The third volume of Von Paschinger's
work on Prince Bismarck contains sev
eral hitherto unpublished anecdotes.
One of theso relates how Dr. Schwenin
ger became tho chancellor's private
physician and subjugated tho great man
to his will. Dr. Schweninger, who was
indebted to Herr Doetze, a deputy, for
his introduction to Bismarck's house
hold, recognized tho strong tempera
ment with which he had to deal and
resolved to assume the whipbaud at the
very outset. Threedays after his advent
the chancellor fell ilk The doctor for
bade him to partake of a certain dish of
which he was particularly fond. Bis
marck rebelled und had it placed before
him notwithstanding. Hearing of what
bad been done, Dr. Schweninger en
tered tho room, took the dish forcibly
from the patient's hands and flung it
out of t he open window. The man of
iron perceived that he had met his
match aud was ever afterward the
most docile of patients under Dr.
Schweninger's hands. Westminster

method of spending a fortnight's holi

them. From the moment they entered
the door until the time for departure
came they were never seen, and the vil
lagers naturally conclnded that there
was some mystery connected with them.
Some even thought of consulting the po
lice on the subject. On their way back
to the railway station they called on the
vicar to give him a trifle for bis chari
ties and explained the secret. They were
nurses and had spent their whole time
in bed. Accustomed to sleep in such
snatches as they could get, their notion
of a holiday was a period of long and
