The Judge Wax Moyed.
n "There was a good joke played on
-t Judge Dundy, of the United States
y Court, at Omaha, several years ago.
It makes me laugh every time I see
the Judge's name in print," said
a Thomas A. Weaver last night.
t "Judge Dundy is quite tender-heart
ed and dreads to send a married man
to jail. Well, there was a fellow on
a trial for passing counterfeit money.
h le was a single man and the case
i- against him was quite strong Judge
s. Baldwin was defending him, and see
9 ing that the case was hopeless, Bald
win decided to take advantage of
Judge Dundy's weakness. He hunt
ed up an old lady who had five child
ren, ranging from 8 years to 8 months
old, and had her to impersonate the
d supposed wife aid children of the pris
d oner. All through the trial they sat,
e often weeping. The man was found
e guilty. Three days later, when the
prisoner was brought up to be sen
nl tenced, the woman and children were
brought in and Judge Baldwin, who
1is v'ery dramatic, made a plea for the
aman and his family of lit tle ones,
who would suffer if the father was
sent to prison. Baldwin wept, the
aO Court wept, the prisoner pretendled
P to w~eep~, as did the children. When
t the Court had wiped away the tears
n he talked severely to the man and
then gave him one day in jail and $10
if fine. Later on,wheni he learn d how 1he
d was deceived, he became so angry that
:e it was weeks before he would spoak to
n Judge Baldwin. When the joke got
out every one twitted the coiurt. Af
ter that, the sigdt of a handkerchief
s applied to the eyes in Judge Dundy's
Scourt was liable to get the prisoner

Thne Poisoned Smith Fam:iy.
tIn our last issue we mentioned the
s fact that Mr. William Smith and
'family, who live in the Waxhaws in
yLancaster county, were very seriously
tsick, and it was thought they had
been poisoned by eating eggs in
s which poison had been placed for
n (logs. Mr. Smiithi dlied Saturday af
>f ternoon and it is almost certain that
r- two members of his family wvill fol
11 low him to the grave.
The eggs that contained the fatal
dose are said1 to have been puirchiased
from a stoi'e in the neighborhood and
wore caten for breakfast last Wednes
n (lay morning. Imnmediately after
~leaving the table every member be
camno violently ill, when the physicians
,were su mmoned.
1s The merchant has traced the eggs
