STORIES OF READY WIT.
Historic Retorts Made in the Court Ruom
and at Bauquets.
(Rochester Post Express.)
The retort is of all verbal coins the
quickest to get into circulation and
the readiest to pass from one hand
to another. Perhaps of all coins it
is also the oldest. In our English
tongue we have legends of the re
partee of king and courtier for well
nigh a thousand years. The pun,
which is often a species of retort,
goes as far back as our language. To
pla) on words, often in a very per
sonal manner, is the simplest form of
retort. Old Thomas Fuller made a
witty as well as a true epitaph for
himself when he bade them write on
his tombstone-two words only, "Ful
ler's Earth." But Faller himself got
t caught sometimes. The name, "Spat
rowhawk," in which one of his
friends rejoiced, was too tempting to
the habitual punster, and so be
asked the unfortunate man who was
I afflicted with it what was the differ
ence between a sparrowhawk and an
owl. The answer which he got was:
"An owl is fuller in the head, and
fuller in the face, and fuller all over,"
which was probably more fuller than
Faller bargained for.
Dunning, the famous wit and
lawyer, was badgering a witness on
one occasion, and persisted in asking
him if he did not live "in the verge
of .the court." He was probably a
poor debtor, who in the then condi
tion of the English law did this to
avoid his creditors. The witness was
forced to admit that he did. "And,
pray, sir," said Dunning, "for what
reason did you take up your resi
dence in that place ?" "To avoid the
rascally impertinence of dunning,"
answered the witness.
The perplexities of our English
tongue gave a chance for a fusillade
Qf retorts in a western court.
~ Th# judge was-fond'of indulgng
htimuelAoccasionally in a joke at~ the
p xpense of Counsellor B., a practis
ing lawyer in the same court, with
~whom he-was very intimate, and for
whom he had a high regard. eOn a
cernsocasions when pleading a
case at the bar .Mr. B. observed .that
bewould..conelade -his .rema'rks on
the fellowing 7day unless the: court
would consent to "set" late enough
for him to fmnish them that evening.
"Sit, sir," said the judge, not set,
hens set." "I stand corrected, sir,"
said the counsellor, bowing. Not
long after, while giving an opinion
the judge remarked that under such
and such ciren,mnstances, an action
-would not "lay." "Lie, may it please
your Honor," says the counsellor,
"not lay; hens lay."
One of the keenest of journalists
and wits, Moritz Goteio Saphir, had
the better of the irate stranger
against whom he ran by accident, at
the corner of a street in Munich.
"Beast," cried the offended person,
without waiting for an apology.
"Thank you," said the journalist,
,"and mine is Sapbir."
t The battle of words is as exhilarat
ing as it is harmless when the corn
Sbatants keep alike their brightness
-and their temper. In the remmnis
enees of Sir Barrington Beaumont
he describes a dinner party at
. Horace Walpole's. Charles James
Fox was one of the guests, and at
- the last moment Charles Selwyn, the
- readiest of wits, whose strange weak
sness was attending executions,
strolled in, evidently in the best of
"George looks as cheerful as
- though be had just come from an
, exection," remarked Horace Wal
tpole; and Fox said, smilingly:
"A namesake of mine was to be
5 hanged at Tybu rn today. I suppose
d you were in at the death, Selwyn?7"
"No, my friend," said Selwyn.
,o "I make a point of never-frequenting
rehearsals." This turned the smile
~A retort which hit as hard as this
was made upon a would be poet at
his club. "I," said he, "have writ
ten a great number of poems, but I
do not propose to have them pub
. lished until after my death."
r "Hurrah!" shouted a chorus of
s. frienis, raising their glasess, "here's
lng life to you old man!"

GHOULS IN INDIANAPOLIS.
Many Graves in Various Cemeteries Robbed.
The Leader of a Gang of Ten Negroes,
All of whom were Arrested several
Days Ago. Confesees Some
of the Robberies.
Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 4.-Sensa
tional developments came to light
this afternoon in the investigation of
wholesale grave robberies that have
occurred in this vicinity during the
last few months, when detectives un
earthed ten bodies in the celiar of
the Medical College of Indiana. A
gang of of ten negroes- was arrested
several days ago charged with the
ghoulish work, and their leaders,
Rufus Cantrell, since his arrest has
confessed to many of the robberies
and informed the authorities that
other gangs have been operating inE
cemeteries in this and adjoining
counties, and that many of the rob
beries accredited to his following
really have been committed by others.
People who have buried relatives
recently in various cemeteries are
greatly excited and since the de
velopments of the last fews days
many graves have been re-opened to
see if the caskets have been tampered
with, Investigation in several of]
these cases has revealed -empty cask
ets. Every medical college in this:
city has been thoroughly searched!
for the stolen bodies, but to no avail.
Six .bodies were found in a picking
vat at the Medical College of Iaiana,
the officials of this institution prov
ing they had been la.wfully obtained
and asserting that there were no
other bodies about the buildings.
Detectives went to the college today
with a search warrant for the body'
of Wallace Johnson, which had been
-stolen from a grave in the Ebenezer
cemetery, northeast of the city. The:
college officials were reluctant to
rallow them to make the search. The~
detectives, however, instituted a rigid
rsearch of the building, and as a last
1resort raised the floor in the cellar.
They soon uncovered the remains of
-ten bodies. An attempt had been
made to destroy the remains with
lime. The college officials are very.
aindignant at the latest phase in the
institution and claim the bodies un
Searthed today are those of subjects
dissected by the students of last
year; that some of them a:~e cadavers
which were in the dissecting room
when the building was bnrned sev
aeral years ago. The detectives claim*
the bodies have been but recently
jjburied and that the evidence of
quicklime is very apparant. The
ebodies are of both mien and women,
but are in such a state that identifi
cation is impossible. Search for t.be
stolen bodies will be continuhd.

S[E THOMAS BRtOWN'S PRATEE.
Beautiful Petition to Him who Giveth
his Beloved Sleep.
[From the Charlotte Observer.]
In these days when one so often sees
sleeping rooms, beautifully printed
nd framed, Robert Louis Steven
on's prayer, or an exquisite senti
nent on true living from Henry Van
)yke, or a restful poem like that
1hib hangs on the wall of one of
e rooms of Mr. Andrew Carnegie's
astle in Scotland, (and in many
humbler homes in America) I take
he liberty of sending you what I
eppose may be appropriately called
ir Thomas Browne's Prayer. Al
ough wretten over two hundred
ears ago, I do not recall ever having
leen it in any collection of poetry. I
nd it in one of his short essays
asled "Of Life." Concluding a para
oraph on sleep he introduces the
rayer n the following words:
"In fmne, so like death, I dare not
rust it without - my prayers, and a
alf adieu unto the world, and take
y farewell in a colloqny with
['he night is coms like to the day;
)epart not Thou, great God away,
[.t not my sins, black as the riight,
~clipse the lustre of Thy light.
eep still in my horizon; for to me
['he sun makes not the day, but Thee.
['hou whose nature cannot sleep,
)n my temples sentry keep;
uard me 'gainst those watchful foes
Vhose eyes are open while mine close,
Let no dreams my head infest,
But such as Jacob's temples blest.
Vhile I do rest, my soul advance;
ake my sleep a holy trance;
['hat I may, my rest being wrought,
ALwake into some holy thought,
.nd with as active vigor run,
fy course as doth the nimbler sun,
3leep is death-Oh! make me try,
By sleeping, what it is to die!
Lnd as gently lay my head
)n my grave, as on my bed.
Eowe'er I rest, great God, let me
Awake again at last with Thee.
.nd thus assured, behold I lie
Securely, or to wake or die.
rhese are my drowsy days; in vain
[do now wake to sleep again;
Oh, come that hour when I shall never
Sleep again, but wake forever.
If anything could be added to the
erene faith expressed in the prayer
iself it is his own quaint words at
the end of it.
"This is the dor :itive I take to
>dward; I need no otber laudanum
than this to make me sleep, after
which I close mine eyes in security,
content to take my leave of the sun
and sleep unto the resurrection."
Do you wish to see the progress
the farmers of the State are making
in diversified and intensified egri
cultare? If so, visit the State Fair,
Oct. 28th to 31st.
Liberal railroad rates to the great

Now that Mr. Morgan and his asso
ciates have been angered by the Presi
dent's avowed hostility to trusts and
are disposed to resent his temerity
and irreverence toward those sacred
organizations by defeating his nomi
nation, and, failing in that, his elec
tion at the polls, we shall probably
have about as interesting a campaign
as has been witnessed for something
more than half a century. If the
President is as "strenuous" and ear
nest as he is reputed to be, the con
test will not be unlike a genuine cow
boy affair in the West. In many re
pects it will resemble that memora
ble conflict between Andrew Jackson
and the United States Bank, and.we
shall bQ able to compare the hero of
New Orleans with the hero claimant
Df San Juan.
Like Jackson Mr. Roosevelt opens
bis attack on the trusts during his
irst terw. Tnogh the charter of
the United States Bank would not
axpire for six years, in his first mes
sage to Congress Jackson fired his
)pening shot, well aware that' time
would be required to rally the peo
ple to his standard and counteract
the advantage which such an institu
ion would have, in a sudden colli
ion, with all its money and its me
aials at hand. "Both the constitu
tionality and expediency of the law
3reating this bank," said he, "are
well questioned by a large portion of
nur fellow citizens, and it must : be
admitted by all that it has failed in
the great end of establishing a uni
form and sound currency."
From that moment the war was
prosecuted with the bitterest rancor
and most relentless vigor. The stock
Af the bank fell from 123 to 116. Its
,fficers, with Biddle, the president,
at the head, realising the desperate
3haracter of the conflict, organized
a powerful lobby with headquarters
in Washington City. They sum
moned all their resources. They did
not hesitate or haggle over the price
>f votes in Congress. They subsid
ed newspapers in every part of the
sontry. The friends of the admin
stration in Congress succeeded in
securing committees of investigation,
ut they'could not prevent the lobby
from packing and controlling them.
A re>ort was made favorable to the
bank, and as a result its stock rose
bo 130. It looked as if the con
cueror of the British was beaten by a
bank. His foes seemed to over-whelm
him. Suborgied speakers and news
papers vilified him basely and cruel
Ly. There were hecret traitors in
his own ranks who had been corrupt
ed, and his frail figure seemed about
o be crushed by the most powerful
fnancial institution of the Western
Perhaps nothing in the history of
that remarkable man 'illustrates the
unflinching firmness of his character
or the heroic courage of his daunt
less soul than his conduct during
that trying period of his life. Clay,
Webster, and later Calhoun were
fighting him in the Senate, all in
flamed by the sting of disappointed
ambition and goaded by the rowel of
the bitterest personal hatred. But
never did he flinch under the terri
ble diatribes which spared neither
his private nor public life. The old
spirit rose within him. The old fire
blazed in an eye in which Tom Mar
shall said he could still see twenty
unfought baittles. The old fury
shook his frame, emaciated and en
feebled by disease, but which again
displayed its dreadful energy. As
on former occasions, the fury of com
bat, the rage of ba:tie strengthened
his weakened limbs and added a new
flame to his flagging spirit. He was
no longer an invalid. There was
spring in his step; an imperial and
martial manner-almost the flush of
restored youth in his cheek. He had
always fought the enemies of his
country; he would fight them still,
whether they appeared in scarlet
coat or as the minions of a monetary
nd degrading despotism.
He summoned Blair from Frank
fort to establish the Congressional
Globe. To Amos Kendall he wouli
dicate its editorials, walking tb4
floor pnnfing his pipe that glowed
thoughts would appear bedecked in
Kendall's gracful and brilliant style.
He, too, would have his organs. He
would draw the line between his
friends and his foes; and, during his
first term, he made over 700 remov
als from office, not including clerks,
though there had been but sixty re
movals during the preceding forty
years. There was not one foot of
middle ground, and no spot of refuge
for traitors or sklkers. These he
could detect almost at any glance.
It would be interesting to see some
of the tricky and cowardly politi
cians of the present day writhing
under the fierce glance of that piero.
ing searchlight-ALdrew Jackson's
The next sessiont be renewed his
recommendation against a recharter
of the baek in stronger terms, but
on test quegtious e was again beaten
in Congress. The charter was re
newed; he vet,,ed it, and the bank
could not seeuirM the necessary two
thirds vote. Kiddie proposed a com
promise, but it was rejected with
disdain. After his second election
he continued the war. He deter
mined to withdraw the government
deposits from the bank. But his
cabinet was divided on the question.
It was difficult to find a secretary of
the treasury who would execute his
orders. A committee of investiga
tion reported that the bank was
sound and the deposits safe. Four
out of six members of his cabinet
opposed removal because "the basi
ness interests of the country" would
be imperiled. McLane had resinged
the secretaryship of the treasury;
Duane, on whom Jackson tl}ought
he could rely, was appointed. But
he took the same view and resigned.
Jackson persisted. "I have no con
fidence in Congress," said he; "if
the bank is permitted to have the
public money, there is no power to
prevent it from .obtaining a charter;
it will have it if it has to buy up all
Congrees, and the publie funds will
enable it to do it."
Taney was appointed, ordered the
removal and the bank expired be
fore its charter There was a panic
resulting from such an industrial
revolution, of course; but, -like most
revolutions, it did good. It proved
a warning to the country that -enor
mous monetary power should not~ be
interferred on any institution.
Now, is Mr. Roosevelt, with all his
"strenuousness," prepared to go the
Jacksonian gait ? The money power
today is far stronger than it was
then. It has twenty-five members
of the 'Senate worth from two to
twenty five millions of dollars each.
It has others who covet riches above
all things. It has a large faction, if
not a majority, in the House. When
Col. Roosevelt aud Col. Wood led
the Rough Riders into an ambuscade
at San Juan his followers ;dmzired
his courage, but questioned his dis
cretion. His political followers may
be doing the same thing and for the
