HIS FIRST CASE.
A Tale of the Blneft-raaa Country,
. and Other nines.
There lives In one of the finest counties
of Kentucky an aristocratic old gentle
man, who, though brave at a time of
physical trouble, has never succeeded in
summoning sufficient courage to shove
him into the recklessness of paying a debt.
Once the colonel was in debt to a grocer
that lived in a neighboring village. He
must have been a new comer, for none of
the "old-timers" would trust the old
gentleman. One morning, just after the
colonel had sat down on the gallery to
smoke, tbe grocer came to the gate and
"Get down and come right in, snh,"
the colonel called, getting np and cor
dially advancing to meet the visitor.
"I am delighted to see you this bright
morning," said the host when he had
shown the grocer into the house.
"You don't know me, I reckon," the
grocer responded, giving the old man a
peculiar look out of his keen eyes of
"Oh, moat assuredly. You are the
"You bet. Did you get that bill or,
rather, them twenty bills I sent you?"
"I presume so, but I cannot say posi
tively who sent them. I get bo many
favors f the kind that I hardly know
whence they come."
'Tin a man of business an' I want my
money without any palarverin'. Do yon

"But are you goin' to pay me?"
"I can't pay you now."
"When can you?"
"Let's see; this ia the 10th of the
month, ain't it?"
That's what it is."
"Ah, ha! and to-morrow will be the
"That's the size of it."
"Well, you come round between th
11th and the first of next month."
"Will you pay me then?"
"No, I don't think I shall"
"Then what's the use of my cominT
"Nono that I can see."
"Not much. What I want is my
money, and I'm goin to have it or know
the reason why."
"I don't mind giving you the reason.
The reason appears to be that you'll not
get the money. Now look here: I have
always made it a point to look with fa
vor on the methods of life established
by other men. You have your rules, and
I have mine, but because onr rules differ
it is no reason for tis to fall out. One
of your rules is to collect every cent that
is due you. All right. One of my rules
is not to pay a cent. All right."
"No. it's not all right; you bet your
life it ain't. You've simply got to pony
''By the way, let iue give you a piece
of advico with regard to that bill.
"Well, then, sue me."
"Ill do it; yon bet your life on that"
The grocer brought suit. The colonel
promptly appeared. The case went to
trial and the grocer got judgment for 7.
"I want my money now," Baid the
"And I want mine." the colonel re
plied. "Yours! I don't owe you anything."
"Oh, yes. Yon see," the old man add
ed, "the courts many years ago granted
me license as a lawyer, and Til be hanged
if yon haven't given me my first case.
Her is the license."
"Why, I haven't given you a case."
"Oh, yes. I advised you to ane me
and you did so. My fee is $10."
"Mr. Billings," said the judge (and he
al?o owed the grocer), "you will have to
pay the amount."
He did so, closed his store, shot the
judge's cow and ran away. Arkansaw

Xewman was educated at Oxford. nd
in spite of bis Calvinistic ssmcbing he
early showed his sympathy wii the "ad

ordained and for many years officiated in
parishes of the Church of England, al

of high church grounds. He gradually
came to the belief that the church of
Rome was the only true church, and Oct
8, 1845, at his own invitation, was visited
by a Passionist father, of whom he asked
admission into the church of Rome. Short
ly afterward he went to Rome, where h
met Piss IX, and when he came back to
England he was a Romish priest. He was
created a cardinal in 1880. -
