In the case of Biddie McGee, Drs.
French and Adams appeared in court
making a statement that she was ill and
unable to appear. The judge made the
examination of tbe doctors and remarked,
according to the physician' side of the
story, that tbe doctors Were a psrty to
keeping her out of court and inferring
that they would appear foi their patients
with false statements, thus reflecting
badly on the medical fraternity, at which
they are vary indignant and a meeting
may be called to denounce the iudge.
A reporter asked his honor what was
said, and he replied that he merely re
marked that a doctor was liable to be
misinformed by bis patient with the in -tention
of getting a certificate and that a
doctor had to prescribe for a patient ac
cording to their complaint, and that he
didn't believe Biddy was sick. He said
that be did not infer that the doctors
were dishonest cr intentionally did wrong,
"I shall not enjoin them from proceeding
with their meeting," he concluded Dav

NO MCRfc miNING 'FOR HIM.
One Exporieuc of Digging; for Gold In
tbe Sierras Was Alt He Wanted.
"Yes," observed a young lawyer friend
of mine yesterday, "I have been 'a jrold
miner in my time, and I had about all I
wanted of it iu that one experience, I can
"You Bee," he went on, "I was possessed
with the idea when I left collet, tome five
years ago, that I'd like to go into gold
mining as a business. First I'd learn the
practical part of it, then I'd locate some
valuable claim somewhere and take things
easy afterward, merely taking out enough
gold to pay my running expenses. Sounds
well, doesn't it?
"Well, I had a couple of hundred dollars
saved up, and with this I bought an outfit
of rough clothing and a ticket for the west.
Without going into details I found myself
some two weeks afterward in Grizzly Flat,
a mining camp in El Dorado county, Cal.
My money was about gone, too, and as I
had no way of procuring additional funds
I bad to set to work, whether I wished to or
"I met a mine boss up there who agreed
to give me a job as helper in one of the
lower levels of his mine. The next day I
started out for my new field of labor. It
was the dead of winter and bitter cold.
The snow wa3 about two feet deep on the
level, and through this we had to tramp a
distance of half a mile to the mine.
"Thus far the outlook was not encour
aging certainly. 'Here, get in the cage
there,' said the boss, pointing to a boxlike
affair suspended over a hole in tbe ground.
With some misgivings I got aboard, and
then down we went.
"Down, down, until it seemed almost as
if we had reached the center of the earth.
It was dark as pitch, too, save for the
flickering rays of the candle which I car
ried. Theu I had to crawl ou my hands
and knees through a narrow, damp pass
ageway, until we reached the face of the
drift. 'Here, Jim,' said the bos, 'here's a
new hand for you. IJetter set him nt work
"I put out my hand and MX a thick,
all my ooze against the wall. Small streams
of water trickled from above down the
back of my neck. There was no gold in
sight, either; no Aladdin's treasure pal
ace greeted my eyes, as I had fondly hoped
to see. It was an uncanny place damp,
dismal anil altogether horrible to contem
plate. 'Here, young feller, git a hold on this
drill, will yer?' And as I instinctively
obeyed Jim prepared to strike. Whish!
ami down came the hammer on the bend of
the drill. I remeiuler only seeing a thou
sand stars and then all became a blank.
"When I returned to consciousness 1
found my arm in a sling. The blow had
glanced and the hammer had desceuded on
my forearm. 'You're in luck; your arm
isn't broken,' said the mine loss; and then
he added, with evident contempt. 'Say,
3-ou're no miutr. 1 think school teaching
is more in your line.'
"He was probably right. At any rate I
mauaged to work my way back "to the
coast, and I was glad enough lo see New
York city agian, I can tell yon. No, siree!
no more gold or any other kind of mining
in mine. Not if lean help it." New- York
lie Stoiprd the Squeak.
During a four years' residence in Iowa,
at Clinton, on the Mississippi, it was my
fortune to often make a trip a short dis
tance up or down the river on one of the
old stern wheelers that then plied that
stream. The engines of these boats were
in plain view on deck, and were usually the
objects of much curiosity on the part of
L"iHn one of these occasions two or three
of us were interested in the motive power
of the lxat, which for some seemingly in
explicable reason kept up a continual
squeaking. During one of the most ex
cruciating spasms of the suffering machin
ery the engineer, with determination iu ev
ery look and motion, grasped the huge oil
can, and made for the spot whence came
the cry for luhricatiou.
A bountiful supply of oil was poured
upon every conceivable place of friction,
and for a few moments all moved smoothly.
But soon the seemingly everlasting squeak
liegan again, much to the disgust of the
passengers as well as of the engineer.
Again the oiling process was resorted to,
and more jwrseveringly than before, ami
quiet was again restored.
But just as the burly engineer ap
proached the group of spectators another
squeak occurred which his quick ear this
time located correctly. A ventriloquist
was in the crowd. Walking up to the
joker the irate oiler seized him by the coat
collar with one Laud, and with the other
squirted the remaining contents of the oil
can down the victim's back until thegrease
ran out of the legs of his trousers. "There,"
he exclaimed, "1 don't think that old en
gine will squeak again tbi trip." And it
did not, for the ventriloquist found his
time completely occupied in vain efforts to
erase the evidence of the success of his ex
periment. Cor. Troy Press.
w Idem for a Scrap Basket.
Four pieces of very stiff pasteboard or
light wood, cut in even lengths of about
twenty-five inches. Paint these a pretty
tint of yellow, blue or terra cotta on both
sides. With a round punch or gimlet
make a series of small corresponding holes
at the sides of each piece about half way
the length. Lace these with ribbon or
cord, to which tassel ends are afterward at
tached. Put flaring puffs of cretonne or
silk at the lower corners by neatly pasting
it within along each side of the cardboard
or wood. Draw up iu a tight loop at the
bottom and fasten to each corner. The
square bottom is secured by strong stitches
in these corners, and is made just to fit the
The cardboard when covered with pretty
cretonne, and fastened together with rib
bon instead of cord lacing, makes a more
substantial basket. The puffs should be
of plain material to match in tint; the bot
toms stitchea in closely around the edges.
The tied ribbons at the side allow tbe whole
thing to be opened flat and to be brushed
clean of dust. Housewife.
U'lsraell's Childhood Tricks.
Here is a delicious story told me by an
old lady whom I met somewhere, which
has cheered me up in my sorrow. When a
girl she used to dine with her parents at
an annual Christmas dinner given by Mr.
Murray, of Albemarle street, to his liter
ary friends. D'Israeli, the elder, and his
family were always there. After dinner
tbe children were allowed to play a round
game together, but after the first year tbey
all refused to play with Master Ben be
cause he cheated so. Evidently at a very
early age be was determined to gain the
mastery, and of cotrse at that age he had
no scruples. He must then have fore
shadowed what he is reputed to have said
of his great political rival viz., that he
waa undoubtedly a great man, out never
could be a successful politician, because be
was overburdened with principle and bad
not one redeeming vice. Ramsey's Recollections.
