Why speak of the lovely painted tril

kled petals, streaked with rose purple?
says P.cadl'ord Tonvy in The Atlantic.
One after another I gathered them

"oh." said a man on a hotel piazza
as I returned, "I see you have nose
bleed." I was putting my hand to my
IM-ket, wondering why I should have
liccn 'taken so childishly, when it came
over me what lie meant. He was look
ing lit the trilliums and explained, in
answer to a question, that he hail al
ways heard them called nosebleed.
Somewhere, then I omitted to inquire
when this is their "vulgar" name. In
Fraueouia the people call them ISenja
udus, which has a pleasant IJiblical
sound -better than nosebleed, at all
vents though, to my thinking, tril-
lium is preferable to either of them
both for sound and for sense.

"Gentlemen of the jury, if you be

lieve the defendant, lind a verdict for
defendant. Follow the ollicer."

brief charge by quoting a shorter one
