By J. LUDLUM LEE. _ Copyrighted, 1808. by Associated Literary Pr^ss. 0 =0 Judge Sanford was hearing a case In tha municipal court The witness lv the chair had Just been sworn In, giving her full name as Llda Graves. Rußsell Roe, counsel for the plaintiff and an old friend of the Graves fam • ily, had asked her to tell Just what she i had seen regarding the accident when Mr. Brown had been run down by a : large red touring car some two months ■ before. He asked a few direct ques : tlons and then turned her over to the ' lawyer for the other side. I Hugo Holland, counsel for the owner | of the automobile, hesitated about put- I ting this lovely girl on the rack of i cross examination, and when her great his eyes looked helplessly into his he almost felt the case was lost. "What did you say your name was?" asked Holland, floundering about for a leading question. "Lida Graves," replied the witness. "What do you do for a livelihood?" followed up Holland. Llda turned to the kindly faced Judge as If for explanation, and over his face came a sinister smile. "He means are you a working woman?" explained the Judge. Then, taming to Holland, he scowled and continued: "I wish the counsel would stop this tomfoolery and ask questions pertaining to the case. Miss Graves Is a lady of leisure—a blind man could see that. Come, come," and he rapped the desk with his gavel. "You take an onth, do you, that the chauffeur did not sound the horn?" said Holland. "Yes," answered the witness. "You sweur to that, do you?" reiter ated the lawyer. "How many times do you want the witness to repeat that statement?" In terposed Hoe for the other side. This started a warfare of objections and exceptions. The two lawyers and the Judge became Involved in legal technicalities. Holland asking one question nnd Uoe objecting, the judge seemingly sustaining all objections. The lawyers Indulged in personalities . aud the judge pounded for order* ] Quiet again reigned iv the courtroom. "From the evidence before me, I render a verdict In favor of Mr. Brown, the plaintiff, for $1,000. The court will take a recess until 2 o'clock," announc ed the judge. Half an hour later Llda Graves and her maid entered a fashionable restau rant, secured a table iv a cool corner of the room and ordered a light lunch eon. She had come into town at the earnest plea of old Mr. Brown, whom she had seen Injured by the touring car and had testified In his behalf. Sipping her iced tea, she glanced about the room and, to her surprise, at a nearby table saw the two lawyers who half an hour ago had been so per sonal In their remarks to each other. The "plnheaded idiot" aud the "lantern Jawed attorney" had evidently decided to bury their differences iv a friendly meal. Mr. Roe caught her eye and In a few moments came up to her table. "May I bring my friend Mr. Holland over to meet yon under more favorable circumstances?" ho asked. "You may not," answered Llda with some spirit. "That man Is a brut». Why, Mr. Roe, he accused me of—wall, of actually telling an untruth on the stand." "Oh, well, that's all In the business, you know, Miss Llda," soothed Roe. "He was paid to do that." "What do you mean—a man receives money to accuse a woman of"— Roe saw that his arguments were fu tile and returned to his friend. Llda finished her luncheon and took the train for Linden Beach, where the Graves family was spending the summer at a fashionable hotel. Sauntering around the broad piazzas the following Sunday morning she met 1 face to face the two lawyers, and It was inevitable that she must meet the brutal Mr. Holland. Despite her aver sion to the man who had cross exam ined her, she had to yield to the charm of his genial manners. "I say, Miss Graves," he began, "we're going to appeal that case, you know." Llda smiled. "What case?" she asked. "Why, my case; that is, your case," stammered Holland. They looked around for Mr. Roe, but he had disappeared to let them fight lt out alone, and when, several hours later, he passed them comforta bly settled In a rustic seat under the trees Roe decided that Holland must be more persuasive out of court than In it. Weeks had slipped by, and one bright Sunday morning found Russell Roe in his white flannels and Llda iv her daintiest of summer frocks argu ing In the sun parlor. "But, Miss Llda, It's rank injustice," he was saying. "It's the meanest kind of a trick to go over to tho other side 1 never would have classed you with the traitors.'' "But I'm not a traitor," answered Llda, blushiue. "I think lawyers ou the whole, and one or two Individually are a mean lot. Why, their whole stock in trade seems to be calling peo ple horrid names. Mr. Holland ac cused mo of prevaricating, and now you turn about and call me a traitor." "Well, will you go rowing with me this afternoon or won't you?" asked Roe, with a somewhat legal tone. "It Is not a question of whether I A Sure-enough Knocker. J. C. Goodwin, of Reidsville, N. C, says: "Bucklen's Arnica Salve is a sure-enough knocker for ulcers.

"I simply cannot; I have aa- Dther engagement" "Exactly!" sung otit Roe, with a tri umphant air. "With the lawyer for I the other side; with that mean, de-1 spit able little Holland; a man who' stoops to accuse women of untruth; a man who stoops to steal witnesses; a thief, a"— "I refuse to listen to you, Mr. JEtoe," flared Lida, and she turned and left Roe In his wicker chair to finish his cigar in solitude. Roe's face did not take on a very disconsolate look. Indeed, a casual observer would hare said it was over spread with a look of absolute content ment. And later in the afternoon when he saw Llda Graves and his best friend, Hugo Holland, making their way toward the wharf ,the expression of Roe's face was still that of great satisfaction. Hugo pulled a fine stroke, and they swung into the little cove in a short time. The twilight shadows fell about them and conversation had lagged. Letting the boat drift slowly where the tide chose to take it, Hugo leaned forward and gazed into his compan ion's face. "Let's play court," suggested Hol land. "All right," agreed Llda. "I'll be the judge." "Not at all," remonstrated Hugo. "Tou've had no experience in that line. You will be the witness in the chair." "Well, all right. But what are you going to be?" asked Lida, somewhat bewildered. "Oh," said Holland, with great au thority, "I'll be all the vest. I'm the fudge, the jury aud the lawyer foi both silk's. Now, you're on the stand and unikT oath, remember." "Promise you won't .".xU me bow okl [ am Dor v but I do for a living." laughed Liv: 1 "I iini i'.ov. valuing to the judge." b< began, and, turning to an Imaginary figure, he continued: "You see the ac cused. Hugo Lawrence Holland, Is dcs pcrately In love with the plaintiff, Lida Graves." "Oh, Mr. Holland," interrupted Llda, "I really do not think"— "Order in the court," roared Hol land. Then, looking directly at Lida, he said, "Wiil you listen to this suit of Holland for your heart and hand?" Llda laughed. The situation was ir resistible. "It seems that I must—whether I will or not." "The one bad feature of the case Is the existence of a two legged beast," continued Holland—"one Russell Roe." Looking directly at the witness, he said, "Do you love this monstrosity?" "Certainly not." asserted Lida. The entire court seemed greatly re lieved. "On your oath?" added Holland. "On my oath," repeated Lida. "And —and"— The counsel seemed to hesitate. He had lost his grip in some manner. Finally, after much halting, he asked: "And this man, this one Hugo Hol land, do you care for him—just the least little bit?" Llda looked at him for a moment, and then, with a merry twinkle in her big eyes, she said, "Please let me be the judge—just for a minute?" "All right." said Holland as he gripped an oar for support. "Ahem," began Lida with judiciary manner. "I think this case should be settled out of court. It seems to mo that the plaintiff and the defendant can make satisfactory arrangements without the aid of outside parties." Hugo now gripped both oars and rowed as if he had entered a varsity race with his life at stake. They were on shore in the twinkling of an eye, and the testimony given there was even more direct, for Llda was in Hugo's arms and her face was very close to his. Angler. Bitter Memories. Although angling has been and still is one of the chief delights of my life, something bitter always arises when I think of my fishing experiences. Taught from my earliest years to han dle a rod and throw a fly, lt has never theless never been my good fortune to grass a really big fish. On the other hand, some of the greatest duffers, so far as angling goes, 1 have ever known have "wiped my eye" time and again at salmon fishing. Only a year or two since I had a friend staying "With me at Dupplin castle, who, to the best of my belief, had never before handled a salmon rod or any kind of rod in his life. But almost at the first cast—if one could dignify the action by such a name—he rc*e, hooked and eventually grassed a forty pounder. Another friend, also a most Indifferent fisher man, killed single handed a splendid fish that went all but fifty pounds. But I. who have given years to the game, have never seen my spring bal ance tally more than thirty-one pounds. —Earl of Kinnvull in M. A. P. The Comedian's Wit. On a first night at tho B— theater, a well known comedian once displayed remarkable presence of mind. He was alone on the stage and was supposed to be expecting anxiously the arrival of a friend. "Ho comes!" he exclaimed, looking off on the left. "Joy! I had been awaiting him so impatiently." At tblß cue his friend entered—on the right! Borne one had blundered—but who? There was no time for hesita tion, and the veteran player's ready wit came to his aid. "Sly dog!" he said jocosely to the newly arrived. "You thought to take me by surprise, but I saw you In the looking glass yonder!" This brought down the house, though the cudlenee had been on the point of hlpsin/i the very palpable blunder tin tHecd had made.—London T'.t-l'itp.
