displayed a new suit of c lothes, au
overcoat, a new rain coat, all recent

them he went to Chicago, staid a

and at the same time make it do as
much real service.

Firt Judicial Honors For a oiuuu.
To Henry VIII belongs tlie honor of
having conferred judicial rights upon a
woman. Lady Auue Berkeley of York
waa allowed by the sovereign, who had
the widest exierieuce of the virtues of
women, to Bit as a judge, appoint a com
mission and actually to pass sentence on
some men who had been killing her deer
and despoiling her park. The sentence
is not recorded, but the fact remains
that at least one woman has exercised ju-'

An Vnique Operation.
An unique surgical operation was
performed upon Mrs. Michael Brod
erick. residing on Twenty-lirst street
ami Third avenue, yesterday by Drs.
Carter and Craig, assisted by Daven
port physicians. About two months
ago while chopping wood in the yard
Mrs. Broderick was seized with a
pain, much like a cramp, in one of
her limbs, and was unable to use it.
She was carried into her home and
has not been able to stand since. Tn
the operation yesterday, a small
bone under the knee-cap was found
to be diseased, and this was removed.
It is now hoped that Mrs. Broderick
will regain the use of her limb.
Why Fish Should Be Cared For.
Migratory fish are hatched and partly
matured iu fresh water. They feed and
grow in the sea, but they are never
caught there, so that their protection
and preservation should be in the hands
of those who are so deeply interested in
making them a salable commodity. Be
sides all this there must be some consid
eration for the sportsman, who without
question spends in the neighborhood in
which he fishes 10 times as much money
as all the fish he catches, if sold, would
fetch. Fishing Gazette.
