THE CASE WAS DISMISSED.
Tbe Lawy**- from St. Paul Could Not Be Contradicted. In a certain village which rejoiced in the possession of only one lawyer an action was commenced before Justice S., and W., the local attorney, retained by the plaintiff. The defendant employed coun sel from the county seat, but the return day came and no lawyer appeared. De fendant, in distress, was relating his woes to a group of idlers on the lookout for fun and mischief, when a stranger appeared wearing a suit of black with silk hat and fold headed cane. This was one A., a "tree peddler" from a neighboring town, a fellow of much versatility and acumen, and withal considerable of a wag. Some one of the group, seeing sport abend, told the defendant that A. was Judge X., a great lawyer from St. Paul, and that if the judge could be prevailed npon to take his case victory was sure. To carry out the joke the defendant was introduced to tho pseudo judge, and ex plaining the situation besought his aid. A. condescendingly replied that, although be had long since ceased to practice in these inferior courts, be appreciated the hard situation of his would be client, and would consent to undertake bis defense. When ushered into the presence of the court be was introduced to bis honor as Judge X., of St. Paul. S., highly elated at the honor of having such eminent counsel appear in his court, at once called the cose. A. arose, made a motion to dismiss, and argued with great pomposity and at con siderable length, quoting pretended de cisions of the supreme courts of the United States and the state of Minnesota, refer ring to Blackstone and every other law writer of whom he had ever heard, and not omitting the most open and shameless flat tery of the magistrate. When he con cluded and sat down, W., the local coun sel, arose to reply, whereat the justice smote tbe table a thundering blow and cried in a voice pregnant with righteous indignation: "Sitdown, sir! That is Judge X., of St. Paul. Don't you suppose he knows the lawP What do you mean by at tempting to contradict him? This case will be dismissed."—Green Bag. The Giraffe and tbe Kids.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MOUNTING, OCTOBER 30, 1892. Impatient. Sainte-Beuve, the great French critic, having occasion to speak of what he thought impatience on tbe part of an emi nent theologian and ecclesiastic, brightens his discussion and enforces his lesson by telling a story of Alfred de Musset. When the future poet was a small child his mother bought him a pair of bright red shoes. The maid put them on his feet and made ready to take him out to walk. Something delayed her for a minute, and little Alfred grew impatient. "Hurry! hurryl" said he. "I want to start. My shoes will be too old!"— Youth's Companion. The Best Man.

It is not often that so neat a compliment can be conveyed in a laconic letter as that which is credited to James Russell Lowell. When Lowell's first wife died rumors were rife as to his re-entering matrimonial bonds with another lady. A friend of his —a lady—took every possible opportunity of correcting this report, which she be lieved to be untrue. Hearing it so often repeated, however, she began to think there must be some truth in it, and made up her mind to write Lowell and get at the facts. She begged him to let her know the true state of affairs—whether she was to believe him a never-to-be-consoled hus band, or after all, "just like any other man." The answer was prompt and brief: Dear Madam—Yours, like any other man. Charles Dickens was usually the most courteous of letter writers, but he could be curt enough on occasions. An Oxford un dergraduate took the liberty of sending Dickens some of his poems, with a view to insertion in "Household Words," of which Dickens editor. With the verses ho sent a note which ran thus: Sin —Understanding that you Insert rhymes in your serial, I send you tome. To this Dickens replied: Sin—We do not insert rhymes without rea son. The stage furnishes us with another la conic letter. Quin had withdrawn to Bath, soured by the triumphs of Garrick. He desired to be asked back to Covent garden, but Rich would not humor him. He wrote: lam at Bath. Yours, James Quin. And received the reply: Stay there and he hanged. Yours, John Rich. Verbosity is the besetting sin of all offi cial correspondence, so that a laconic dis patch is refreshing. W>. H. Crawford, secretary of the treas ury, wrote to S. Dinsmore, collector at the port of Mobile: Treasury Department, I Washington, Jan. 15,1823.) Sir—This department is desiriouß of know ing how far the Totnbigbee river runs up. You will please communicate the information. Respectfully, W. H. Crawford. The reply reads: Mobile, Fob. 7,1822. Sir—l have tho honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 15th nit., and of in forming you in reply that the Tombigbee river does not run up at all. S. Dinsmore. —Yankee Blade. Elephant on Toast. The young man from the country took his green necktie and his best girl into a restaurant on Woodward avenue, and like some young men when the girls are around he was disposed to be facetious at the waiter's expense. "Waiter," he said, "bring me a broiled elephant." "Yassir," replied the waiter perfectly unmoved. "And, waiter, bring it on toast." "Yassir. 1 Then he stood there like a statue for a minute. "Well," said the young man, "are you going to bring it?" "Yassir." "Why don't you, then?" "Orders is, sir, dat we has to git pay in advance for elephants, sir. Elephants on toast, sir, am $18,000.25; ef you take it wid out toast, sir, it am only $18,000, sir." The waiter never smiled, but the girl did, and the young man climbed down.— Detroit Free Press.

QUEEN OF THE SWORD. An Expert with the Foils Who Is Still Young; and Handsome. Reina Jaguarina is the daughter of a Spanish lady and her English husband, but was born in Ohio, so she is a happy com posite of races and very much a citizen, aS her father lost his life in the war for the Union. Owing to the Spanish system ol property descents the mother's name waS retained, and those who are "up in Span ish" pronounce it "Hahwareena." These are but preliminary facts. Hei reputation rests upon tho fact that she ii undoubtedly the best swordswoman in the world and has few equals among men. Hei admiring Spanish countrymen call hei Reina della Espada, and a queen of the sword she certainly is. At the age of nine she begnn fencing to improve her health, which was quite feeble; at thirty she is S magnificent looking woman and has the medals for several great victories. To a re porter of The Globe in Boston, where she has lately been giving exhibitions, shesaidi "The contest I am proudest of was the one fought with Sergeant Davis, a cavalry of ficer of the United States army. It was just after he got home from fighting the Apache Indians under General Miles. "He made the remark that he had brought home several scalps and would like to have mine. Well, he challenged me to a combat and tried for it, but I still have it. It was, I own uj), the hardest work I ever did." P The referee and judges joined in an ele gant testimonial to Miss Jaguarina, certi fying that she had scored eleven points to seven scored by Sergeant Owen Davis. Tbis was at the Mechanics' pavilion, San JAGUARINA. Francisco, Feb. 8, 1887. She had another contest there with Captain E. N. Jennings, of the Irish Hussars, in which she defeated him, as she did six times afterward —three times on foot and three times on horse back. To a question as to her dress she re plied: "Oh, dear, no; a woman could not do anything in a habit. I wear riding trousers and boots, spurs and all, and a French officer's cuirass. This is of brass to protect the body, and in it one can neither bend to the right nor left, but is in cased as in a vise. The riding is all done by balance, and when one loses his bal ance he throws himself, that tactic being part of his training for cavalry work." She carries a slight scar on her face and two on her body as the result of her com bats, and is withal a very refined and beau tiful woman. The Driver Was Fined. William Muller, a New York truck driver, was recently charged with cruelty to animals. Joseph Proctor, driver of a Ninth avenue car, said that while nearing the corner of Fourteenth street on his tip town trip Muller was driving a heavily loaded furniture van through the street, and notwithstanding he bad stopped his car and turned his horses, the defendant had deliberately run into the horses, struck one with the fore wheel of his truck, and when the animal struggled to get up, having fallen, it caught its hind leg in the hind wheel of the truck, and the leg was broken. The driver was corrobo rated by the conductor and a fireman who happened to be passing at the time. Muller, in his defense, said he was in a hurry to get to the ferry and signaled the driver of the car to hold up, but said he did not do so, and the accident must have been caused by his own carelessness. He said he knew nothing about the breaking of the horse's leg until he had reached the ferry, when he was arrested. The court believed the car driver and fined Mullei twenty dollars. The Spider and the Wasp. The deadliest enemy the spider has is the wasp. No spider has any chance at all in battle with a wasp, for the latter is mail clad and bites as hard as he pleases. The spider cannot penetrate the hor.iy covering of the wasp's body, while the sharp sting of the winged fury will pierce any place in the spider's tender anatomy. Even the tarantulas of Texas and New Mexico are afraid of the big red wasp ot those countries that does not hesitate tc pounce on one whenever it is seen, and after stinging it carries it off to place in the nest where the eggs have already been deposited. The bodies of the spiders are food for the young wasp, and one wasp nest has been known to contain fifty spi ders. Stitches In His Finger. Twenty-four years ago John Gilbert, a Pottstown (Pa.) restauranteur, had one of his index fingers mangled in a feed cutting machine. The doctor sewed up the wound, and it readily healed. Recently the fin ger got sore, and an examination revealed the ends of several threads. They were the stitches that had been put there a quar ter of a century ago. The threads wer ■ removed and the finger is healing. A Lively War Record. There is a veteran in the pension office at Washington, Captain Thomas J. Spen cer, who was present in forty-five battles, was captured three times and escaped twice, and saw the inside of seven Confed erate prisons. Novel Burglar Alarm. The new subtreaitury building at Sun Francisco has an electric burglar alarm installed between the rows of bricks so that any interference witli either the bricks or cement will cause an alarm to sound. She Committed Suicide. Mrs. F. C. Cone, at Paris, left this letter: "My husband—Forgive me if I osuse you trou ble, but I suffer so. You do not know what these long, wakeful, wretched nights are to me, and I am so tired, darling—the pain will never be better. It Is not easy to take my own life, but I have been sick so long Good-bye, my hnsband, I love you—your wl 'c."
