Story o/ a Great Latryer.
“There is a good story told on the Hon.
Oscar Turner,” remarked a once prominent
lawyer and county judge, who is now a
minister of the gospel. “They sav,’ be
continued “that upon one occasion, many
years ago, lie was engaged in a very impor
tant case in one of the interior counties.—
: There was a large array of legal talent on
each side, and the case was being fought
bitterly. Soon after the court opened one
morniug Colonel Turner was examining a
witness. He asked a question to which the
other side objected, and a discussion at
once ensued. The opposition spoke at
length against the asking of the question ;
one of Colonel Turner’s colleagues replied
in an equally lengthy argument. Another
of the opposing counsel addressed the
court, another of Colonel Turner’s colleagues
responded. When the latter had finished a
third attorney for the opposition aired his
views on the subject, and was followed by
another of Colonel Turner's fellow lawyers.
This continued until the day was well spent,
and all parties were worn out. All during
the argument Colonel Turner, who had
asked the question, sat in silence, paying
close attention to the speakers, but taking
no part whatever in the discussion. Finally
about 4 or 5 o’clock in the afternoon the
presiding judge decided that the question
was a proper one and might be a->ked :
“‘Now, Colonel Turner,’ said lie, ‘you
may put your question to the witness.’
“ ‘Oh,’ responded Colonel Turner rousing
himself,‘l have forgotten it now judge.—
It was not important anyway.
If we are money makers it is to the ex
clusion of something else ; if we have gen
tleness and refinement, these qualities unfit
us for becoming money-makers. The late
Daniel Dougherty met at Naragansett Pier
a very charming young man one evening,
and afterwards asked me if he was poor, or
if he had inherited a fortune.
“Why do you not ask me if lie has made
one ?” I rejoined.
“Because I know he hasn't,” replied Mr.
Dougherty, who, as everyone knows, was a
very keen observer of human nature.
“He is poor, or if he is not his money
was inherited,” insisted Mr. Daugherty, and
when I pressed hint for a reason for his as
sertion he said : “He is too refined, too cul
tured, tco altogether charming ever to have
made, by his own exertions, a fortune, or
even a competency, beyond a mere living,”
which was a perfect diagnosis of the young
man’s position in life.— Boston Home Jour
nal.
That might have been true of the young
man referred to, but does great injusticoto
many others.

Penguins are the strangest creatures ever
seen. They are supremely funny as they
quack and strut about with their padded
feet over the snow, or, coming to a slope,
glide swiftly down toboggan fashion upon
their breasts. If one lands upon the
piece of ice they are resting Upon, they ap
proach fearlessly with a threatening “Quack,
Quack.” l'or their inquisitiveness they,
too, often received the handle of the club,
for it was soon found that their flesh great
ly resembled that of the hair, and upon
them we had many a tasty and substantial
meal. The emperor penguin is very diffi
cult to kill; he will live after his skull lias
b-en most hopelessly smashed. The best
way to put an end to them is to pith them.
Six of us one day set out to capture one
alive, and so strong was the bird that five
with difficulty kept their hold, and, after
he was bound with strong cords and nauti
cal knots, he flapped his flippers and re
leased himself.—Popular Science Monthly.

Jemimia, once she had a beau,
He didn’t mind her name, you know.
Although it was so prosy.
She had catarrh, and hud it so,
That he at last was forced to go—
The odor was no posy.
If she had been sage in time, she would
have taken Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy.—
An offensive breath is most distressing, not
only to the nerson afflicted, if the person
has any pride, but those with whom he 01"
she comes in contact. It is a delicate mat
ter to speak of, but it lias parted not only
friends hut lovers. Bad breath and catarrh
are inseparable. Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Reme
dv cures the worst cases, as thousands can
testify. $500 reward offered for an incura

A small boy from the slums bad been
brought into the mission school and for a
couple of Sundays he had been instructed i
in the rudiments. On the third Sunday he •
brought with him his brother, William. To ,
test his memory the teacher begau to go I
^ver the previous lessons.
"Who made you?” she asked. I
“God,” he replied promptly.
“And what else did God make?”
The youngster studied a moment and look

jrother; then his face brightened. 5
“He made Bill, too, I guess,” he answer
id, and William said, “You bet.'
BEAUTIFUL SLEEP
—is an expression
used for sound
sleep. Nothing is
so gratifying to
the nerves, heart,
fcT and head, as perfect
- sleep—a companion of
rgo.>d digestion and a
I healthy liver. A tired
_ dig*~ti"ii fails to assimilate, or
„ ''take care of, the food we eat Some
thing bracing or invigorating is needed for
the Fiver, stomach, and intestines.
This is where you will find Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets do the most good. They are
tiny, sugar-coated pills, scarcely larger than
mustard seed, made of concentrated botan
ical extracts. These “Pellets” are easily
dissolved in the stomach and absorbed into
the blood, stimulating a flow of bile from the
liver, and arousing to activity all the glandu
lar secretions. Thus they act in nature’s
oxm iray. ,,
They’re ffuaranteed to give satisfaction, or
monev refunded, in all Bilious Attacks, in
Kick Headache, Constipation, Dizziness, and
Indigestion.

“The Favorite.”
1 have on hand the old St. George Chapel
Souvenir Spoon.
The ruins of old St. George Chapel are 1$
miles from Charlea-Town and an object of in
terest. The Chapel is supposed to nave been
erected as earlv as 1750—probably as late as
1700. It is mchtioned in Henning's Statutes
at I^irgc as one of the Chapels more costly
than many others. The site, which is on the
lands of Col. H. B. Davenport, is supposed to
have been donated by Lord Fairfax. It issup
poeed to have been more elegant, hence more
costly, than others, because it was located near
where many wealthy Church-of-England peo
ple lived who would take pride in out-doing
their neighbors in the size and magnificence
of their houses of worship. At any rate, the
present ruin was once grand in its time. The
walls were of stone quarried in the vicinity.
The other material is supposed to have been
brought front England. The roof was sheet
lead : the window an t door frames of cedar
wood; the floor in tiling; the pews «nc pul
pit in oak—elaborately carved. The soft,
grey old walls in summer time are ivy-hung—
bnt the Chapel, as pictured in the bowl of the
spoon, is a winter scene—the veierable pile
surrounded by leafless trees and the graves of
the olden-time covered wiui me umuuiui
snow.” For sale by.
