trout in Dublin pond since April 1. The law
is off for brook trout after April 1 in New

caught through the ice. The respondents

Mrt. Deidamia Allen of 099 Coart street.
Keene, it one of the few surviving pension
ers of the war of 1812, being the widow of
Capt. Daniel Allen, who served in that war.
She is 09 years old, and, although she has
been blind for a number of years, retains her
faculties in a remarkable degree. She is a
native of Westmoreland. Twelve children
were born to her, of whom two died in in

their married life. Capt. Allen died in Keene
in 1874. Mrs. Allen recently recovered from
a severe attack of the grip.

The Intelligent Jury.
Law court stories were especially at
tractive to Hicks, and he told many of
them. His great story, which was al
most a dramatic sketch, was of the ac
quittal of a Cornish doctor who was
charged with the murder of bis mother-in-law
by mixing arsenic with a dish of
rabbits and onions, which he gave her
for supper. The setting of the court,
the swearing of the jury, the speeches
of counsel, and the judge'a charge were
all related by Hicks with marvelous hu
mor The climax to the fun was the con
fabulation of the jury as to the verdict
they should give, and their individual
reasons for returning a verdict of ac
quittal from the juryman who "didn't
bold with old 'oman eating rabbits and
onions for supper" to the juryman who
declared that "it wasn't a ha'po'th of
odds to him, and 'twas but an old 'om
