CHECKING THE WITNESS.
rke Testimony of m Careful Old Man In
the Presence of m Young Attorney.
The young- lawyer was determined
that if vigilance could accomplish any
thing the case should be decided :ii
favor of his client, and so when l he
careful old i*w,n went upon the sla. d
for the defense, the attorney leaned in
ward, prepared to fight every inch of
the way.
"Mr. Johnson, the plaintiff," said the
careful old man, "said that if 1 would
buy the house he would get Mr. tiinr.i
son to relinquish his release. He said
ho thought Mr. Gimpson would agree
tt> go. 1 guess??"
"NeveT mind what you guess. We
don't want any hearsay or gucssir .T..
Your honor (to the court), I object. (?>
the witness* testimony. lie is guessing
at what he says. We want facts."
"Excuse me," said the old r.:ar; "T
was about to say that I guc-fK '1
ing, and insisted on the under:.tcr-.i'::g
being established in my presence. :'o
the two men got together, with nic en
hand, to listen to what they said. I
understand?"
"Objected to mm incompetent. Your
honor, we don't want to know whr.t
this man understands was done. \V?
want to know what he knows v.-a*?
done. We want"?
? ?? ? ? - - -
ime moment/' Raia tne careful oh!
man. "I was about to say that T 11- ?1 - r
stand ordinary conversation with r <?
difTiculty, and so that there m'fr'.t ' ?
no error T insisted that they yell o*:t
their propositions in loud tones, vV
they did until you could hear them :;i
the middle of the town. I am in
formed?"
"Your honor!" cried the young at
torney, "is our time to be taken up lis
tening to hearsay evidence? Tie do~s
not know. lie was informed that such
and such was so and so. What we nu:~t
have is what he knows about the trade
and whether or not he?"
"I am informed on real estate val
ues, having been n real estate nrrnt nl!
my life," the old man said, 'Wind I knew
what the worth of tha^ lease was to the
holder of it. Knowing the facts, i
would fix his damages at $78.32. I be
lie v??"
"Objected to ua conclusion and n ??
incompetent. What any man believe-;
is hot necessarily good proof. I dor't
want to know what you believe, hut
what you know. We must insist ur.
your telling what yon know and net
what you surmise or what you conje.
ture or what y<nf think or what you im
agine. A courtroom is not a plnce for
exploiting what a man believes, bpt
. what he is sure of. I think the court
will support me, in saying'that we don't
want to know what this man believes."
And the young lawyer looked confi
dently at the justice.
"I was going to say," said the wit
ness, "that I beHevetfeart is all."?Chica

Blaok Men In Persia.
, Old inscriptions ami carving* have
?liown that tbaro existed in ancient
Persia members of a race of black
Rkinned men, who possessed features
resembling those of Africans. The
i origin of these people, as well as thair
j apparent disappearance in modern
times, have furnisltcd puzzling ques
tions for ethnologists. Some have sup
posed that in prehistoric times the
greater part of southern Asia was oc
cupied by a primitive black race, of
which only vestiges remained when the
empires of Babylonia and Assyria
arose. Lately descendants of the block
men who figured In the early history
of Persia are believed to have been
