TO MINOR, D. N. FOWLER AND
H. M AR. LEY INDICTED
A Sensational Tilt Between the
Attorneys Engaged in
D N Fowler and Herbe. * Mur
ley must answer at thc next term
of the circuit court for selling
cigarettes to a minor. The case
was sent up last Thursday by
Magistrate C D Easterling. Thc
prosecutor was A 0 Gilchrist,
whoso son, Henly Gilchrist, 10
years old, bought the cirgaettes at
Mr. Fowler's store. Marley was
implicated because he was said to
have stood for thc payment of
young Gilchrist's account at Fowl
It seems that Henly Gilchrist
was werking for Marley, a yening
man employed by tho Hell tele
phone company. Marley held
back eight dollars of Ilenly's sal
ary, claiming that he had stood
for that amount at Fowler's. A
O Gilchrist tried te collect the sal
ly due his son, but was also told
that Marley would not pay till the
account at Fowler's was paid.
Mr. Gilchrist, got a bill from Mr.
Fowler for thc account, and found
on it a number of items for cigar
ettes. Ile then consulted J Iv
Owens, an attorney, and the action
was brought for violating thc sta
tute which forbids the selling of
cigarettes to boys under IS.
11 only Gilchrist said in his testi
mony that he had bought cigar
ettes from others besides Fowler,
and that lu4 could buy them any
where I hey wore sold.
,) W LeGrand represented Fo vi
er and Marley.
This was only a preliminary,
and the defense did not testify.
Below is the law on the sub
"lt, shall not be lawful for any

LAWYERS SAY UNPLEASANT THINGS
There was quite a sensational
incident during the progress of the
trial, in w hich it looked, for a
time, that lhere might bo a person
al difficulty between tho two attor
neys engaged in the east'.
Mr. LeGrand was cross ox?min
ing young Gilchrist,' when the lat
ter said in answer to a question,
"That is not in thc case is it '."
Mr. LeGrand demanded that he
answer tho question, when Mr.
Owens arose and said that he
thought the witness was honestly
seeking information and did not
intend any disrespect.
Mr. LeGrand, addressing Mr.
Owens, said, "Von know yourself
thut that is not so."
"If I were out of court", replied
Mr. Owens, "I weilld call that by
its proper linnie".
"Say it now", said Mr. Lc
"I would if I ucn-out of court",
replieiI Mr. ( hvens,
"If w o were out of court you
would catch something, foo", re
plied Mr. LcGrand,
M r. ( hVons I hen saul : "If you
nay that 1 knew what I was saying
was not true, then you falsify".
M iv LcGrand replied, I will sec
about that when wo get outside".
This ended the incident for the
time being. After tho conclusion ol'
tho testimony, Mr Owens, in begin
ing his speech,said that ho regretted
that things had been injected in the
case which did not belong there,
among which was charging an at
torney that ho was saying some
thing which he knew was not true.
He said that he knew of hut ono
way to answer such a charge, and
he would give that answer as long
as there was breath left in his
body. Ile then proceeded to ar
gue the merits of the ease.
After tho conclusion of Mr.
Owens' argument, Mr. LcGrand
arose and said that none could
treat tho court with more respect
than he; that he had never before
received even thc semblance of a
challenge, and that he was ready
to meet it on the outside. uMy
first remark to thc gentleman on
thc other side", he said, "was in
tended to be jocular".
Mr. Owens quickly arose and
said: "Then 1 beg your pardon. I
thought you were in earnest".
"It is granted," replied Mr. Lc
After the trial was over, tho two
shook hands, and the incident was

pa n i t-I Lambert, Who Died lu 1809,
Oat Too Obcitc to Wabbl?.
Thc famo of Daniel Lnmbert ns a
rhamplon muong fut men In England,
If not In the world, Btlll remains un
rivaled. Daniel waa born at Leicester
in 1770 nnd died In 1800 nt Stamford.
The grandson of n celebrated cock-1
fighter and addicted to ?port through
out bis life, bis dimensions were not
extraordinary, and bis habits were not
different from those of other lads un
til he wai fourteen years old. When
twenty-three years of age, however, ho
turned the scale nt thirty-two stone,
and, although be is recorded to have
heeu then able to walk from Woolwich
to London, nt the time of his deaAh, In
his fortieth yenr, ht had attained tin]
prodigious weight of fifty-two stone, o?
728 pounds, and was more or less help
less. Ile was a modest mau, and wher
he had achieved physical greatness
fame was thruRt upon him. He was
for a long time unwilling to be made
a shew of, but he gained a more than
local reputation, and people traveled
from far to see bim, resorting to vari
ous devices in order to be allowed tpl
do so. At length the prospect of prolu^
overcame his resolution, and for four
years before bis death he exhibited
himself in London and in the prov
Ho was apparently n man of some
wit, for once, before ho permitted the
public to gaze upon him, an inquisitivo
person had gained access to his pres
ence by protending to be a fellow
sportsman Interested In thc pedigree of
a mare, whereupon Lambert promptly
replied, "She was bred by Impertinence
out of Curiosity." Before tho days of
Daniel Lambert. Edward ?right of
Malden was a well known fat man, al
though bis name no longer lingers as
a household word. Ile died in 1750 at
tlie ugo of thirty years, weighing forty
two stone and seven pounds, and ls
stated to have been on activo man till
a year or two before his death, when
his corpulency so overpowered, hie
Strength that his lifo was a burden and
his death n deliverance. Both Bright
and Lambert seem to have been genial,
good humored fellows and very popular
among those who visited them. In
deed popularity seems to be the lot ot
the corpulent in fact as well as in flo.
lion. Tho heroes of fiction, however,
have the advantage in the matter of
lasting glory, and tho names of Danie/iS
Lambert and the fat boy of Peckham
Bink into insignificance beside those of
Falstaff and the fat boy in "Pickwick."
