One Decision Tbat the Snprem
Court Couldn't Alter.
In the good old days when Judge
Gaslin sat upon the bench in a district
that comprised the western half of
Nebraska, the rustler, the horse thief
and the killer abounded. Judge Gaslin
was aware that tbore was but one way
to rid the country of these pest, and
that way was to make it too hot for
them. Accordingly Judge Gaslin, when
one of them was put on trial, admitted
evidence that was sometimes "incom
petent, irrelevant and immaterial." but
as it was zeuerally true that if the
prisoner was not guilty ue uaa oeen
guilty of something equally bad Judge
Gaslin let it go at that and clinched
the prisoner on general principles. The
result was that the supreme court re
versed a good many f the judge's
During these perilous times an atro
cious murder was committed in Adams
county and the perpetcators were soon
captured. The evidences of guilt were
plain, and the two prisoners were soon
pronounced guilty and sentenced to be
hanged. But as several notorious char
acters had recently been allowed to es
cape by the supreme court, the people
of Adams determined to forestall any
thing of that kind by quietly lynching
the prisoners. The two men were tak
en from the jail and hanged to a rail
road bridge east of town.
The bodies were left hanging to the
bridge, and next morning Judge Gas
lin sauntered out that way to take
look. He gazed on the swaying bodies
for a few moments without saying
word. Then he turned to a friend and
"I sentenced those two fellows to be
hanged. That's one decision that In
fernal supreme court won't reverse."

Marked Difference From Those of tbe
Orator, Preacher and TVovelist.
Probably not one reader in a hundred
has paused to notice that a newspaper
article is written on a plan just the re
verse of that of a sermon or oration.
Comparatively few ministers have an
alyzed the subject sufficiently to notice
this fact, and their ignorance of it will
often account for the reluctance of
newspapers to accept matter contribut
cd by them. It is worth the while of
evcrj' man and woman to know the
general plan on which newspaper arti
cles are written, for almost everybody
desires at times to announce something
through the press. The mere knowl
edge of the theory will not make a suc
cessful writer in this or any other de
partment, but it is the first step.
The skillful preacher or orator usual
ly reserves his most important points
until toward the end of his discourse
closing with a climax; the skillful
newspaper reporter puts his climax in
to his first sentence and ends with the
most nonessential detail. While thr
novelist secures his dramatic effect by
keeping the secret of his story hidden
as long as possible, the reporter attain
success ny revealing i:is secret as
quickly as words will let him. Both
are working ou principles as clearly
tienned as mat on wim-n a sonnet is
constructed, but the modern newspa
per article is of so much more recent
date that few critics have analyzed it.
and even many of the best New York
writers work daily upon the foregoing
principle without knowing it. No man
can work many days under a metropol
itan city editor without learning it.

Dishes That Break.
The crying demand of the times is a
dish that will not fall out of a srirl's
hands and break. Women who keep
help in their kitchens do not make the
complaint of broken dishes more often
than the woman whose daughters "do
the dishes." As soon as a man gets a
half dollar saved it has to go for a
meat platter or a pitcher which his
daughter dropped, and there probably
isn't a family engaged in housekeeping
that doesn't have to make weekly visits
to a queensware store. In some homes
the daughters are fined for every plate
they break, but the father has to give
them the money to pay back to him in
fines, so that he is always the loser. If
a man is put in good humor by his din
ner, the crash of china heard from the
kitchen ten minutes later drives his
good nature away. Atchison Globe.
PEOPLE OF THE DAY.
The question of social precedence Is
one that agitates Washington a great
deal in fact, the capital is scarcely
ver entirely free of it. The most re
cent flurry in that line has Mrs. George
Dewey and Mrs. Nelson A. Miles as
the principal figures. Both ladies
stand high ta Washington social cir
cles, and each Is credited with strong
social ambitions. General Miles Is

Ernest Seton-Thompson, popularly
known as "Wolf" Thompson, the friend
of wild animals and author of "The Bi

popular lecturer. Mr. Thompson says
that his leaving Manitoba for New
York was due to an order for over 1,(KK)
drawings of birds and animals to illus
trate the Century Dictionary. On fin
ishing this task, ten years ago, he went
immediately to Paris, where his first
picture, "A Sleeping Wolf," was given
a conspicuous place "on the line at
the Salon. The writing of his "Grizzly"
look (which appeared first in The Cen

by Itudyard Kipling, who hnd listened
