This is the title of a new work, the
first of its kind, so far as known, to
lave been published. The writer. Hen-
y S. Wilcox, is a Chicago lawyer of
'iroad experience, and after years of

vtiting several works depicting the pe
culiarities 'of the bench, bar. witnesses
md others who have to do with the or
linary affairs of attorneys. In his first
ffort he comes perilously near enum
erating the failings of well known mem
bers of the bench at the. present time.
Iowever, he makes it plain that his
subjects, while taken from real life, arc
'm personal. The work row on the

Brigadier Ceneral Crozier. chief of

Washington after a visit, to R.ick Island
and oilier arsenals, interviewed at
Washington on the subject of the loca
tion of tiie powder plant which the gov
ernment will establish in an attempt
to break up the power of the powder
dust, declnrcd that Rock Island arse lal
fills till require mients with tlie excep
tion of having the best shipping facili
ties. He; also mrntieuis the- fact that
the" gases that would be generate l in
the manufacture of povde-r would cause
annoyance? in the three1 cities, depend
ing upon the direction of the wind, and
theTo :i.ight bo danger of explosions.
The latter outingency, !v says, would
not be an element worth considering
while the powder made is that in us-e?
in the1 army now, but the menace might
be'comc a serious nno in Ihe event thai
scri.e other kind eif explosive were made.
