Certainty and Probability.
Moral 'eertaintv vnav w ilnflnrwl In o
rough way to be that degree of certainty
which is produced hv a nrennndernnen f
the probabilities. Moral certainty is the
highest degree of certainty that it is pos
sible for the human mind to attain, except
DerhaDS in the exact sciences In v,a
purely abstract sciences, those iu which
conclusions are aeaucea by reasoning alone,
there is nosnch thing asabsolute certainty,
and in what mav not inannrnnri.itelir )
denominated the mixed sciences there is
little it anything that can with truth be
affirmed to be morally certain.
This is nroved bv the different, vietra anil
the changing theories of men eminent in
the medical world and by the conflict of
opinion which has existed, and ia likely
always to exist, among the greater law
yers and the wisest judges and among the
greatest statesmen. The degree of prob
ability may be verv frreat. crent. pnmmh
indeed, to produce firm conviction, and yet
aiuer an, mere is no aDsoiute certainty.
Men must act upon probability, and he

A Oneer Itauk Note.
Probably one of the oueerot devices ever
put on a bank note, check or letterhead
was that formerly used by a banking firm
at Devil s Iake, X. 1). It was a sheaf of
wheat standing upright, entwined with a
niioon, the bond bearing the inscription;
