Th* Snpremo Court of Illlttola Finds Thai the Lowsr Onart Krred in Selecting h Jary—The Opin ion Not Uninlmoai. By the Associated PreM. Ottawa, 111., Jan. 19.—The state supreme court in an opinion rendered by Chief Justice Bailey, today, reverses the verdict in the case of Dan Coughlin, tbe last of the men convicted for Dr. Cronin's murder, and remands the case for trial. The opinion makes 18,000 words. The reversal is based princi pally on the ineligibility of jurors Bon tecou and Clark. No expression of opinions as to the various other points raised by counsel is given. Justice Schofield has written at the end of tbe opinion: "I dissent both from the reasoning and conclusions in the foregoing opinion." Judge Magruder also dissents and cays: "Judgment is reversed upon the alleged ground that Bon tecou and Clark were not impartial jurors." The judge then reviews the examination of those jurors, and con siders them sufficient to establish their competency. Ue says two facte are clearly disclosed—that their opinions were baaed on newspaper statements, and tbat they believed in their own ability to fairly and impartially render a verdict in the case in accordance with the law and the evidence. After comment on the general use of the newspapers by the public, Judge Magruder aaya: "If men who read newapaper accounts are excluded from tbe jury box, trial by jury might as well be abolished. The fact tbat a juror has expressed an opinion based on news paper statements does not necessarily disqualify him;" and in support of this Judge Magruder cites a number of opin ions.

Mr. Black is usually fortunate in his choice, although he seldom depend! upon the authors for a suggestion. What could be better thau ".Madcap Violet" or "A Princess of Tbtile" or "Muclcod of Dare" or tho alluring simplicity of "Shan don Bells" und "Sunrise?" We must admit, however, that "Green. Pastures and Picca dilly" is what Polonlus would have called "an ill phrase—a vilo phrase." Mrs. Oii phant has given us a curious mixture of good and bad title—"He That Will Not When He May," "Miss Murjoribanks" (which we adjure our readers to pronounce. "Marchbanks"; and "Within tbo Pre cincts" being among the former, and "The Railway Man aud His Children" beiug perhaps the worst example of tbe latter. Dickens was curiously infeliaitoUß in ids ohoice of titles—unless we pardon the bad grammar of "Our Mutual Friend"—while Thackeray, on the other band, made a mas ter stroke in naming bis first long novel "Vanity Fair." But far worse than a com monplace title is a misleading one.—Provi dence Journal. Where the Skill Comes In. "Have you black Huma lace?" she in quired, stopping at tho linen counter.

Hp nnpprnrd to Hot* a Black Call " • Which II- vittrc-J nt the Right Time. Mnny years ur;o, long before thorailronds and telegraph poles and very long before the civil war, when Reading Pa., was only a quaint, cssmtry town and its one chiof summer resort wnatho old White House hanging on tho sido of the Neversink hill and overlooking the blue waters of the Schuylkill river nt Its foot, Butcher Kcif snyder—old Ihvtohcr John—came slowly wendiug his own and bia horse's way Ground the curve known as Lovers' Leas, a half mile farther down tho mountalti road, having ln hit wagon a solitary black calf somewhere between 10 months and v year Old. Veal waß scarce and John Waa mad, for no matter how small he cut thu pieces he could not supply bis customers, among them some of the first famfltes io Reading. He was hungry, too, and what was worse he was dry. The Whits House door was open, and in the ofllce at a tublc sat Judgo Cly—r, Lawyer Hlc—, jlnwyer L—l and Dr. ll—r. \ Well, lie drew rein in front of fhe Md tavern porch. It was midnig'bl,. I'bo. landlord, who knew his guests well, hod retired, leaving the house to darkness and to them. No one heard the butcher; the dust was knee deep on that much traveled country road. Keifsnyder stepped down nnd surveyed tbe four men, all of whom he well knew, and who enmo to thio lonely spot to play cards for money, and a glitter ing pile lay on the table, around which these four gentlemen stood with drawn pistols, whilo words hot and heavy were hurled at each other across the pile <:>f gold. It was Judgo Cly—r who spoke now: "You're a liar," be thundered at. his op ponent. " You cheated! I saw you. doit, nnd before you touch that money may the devil with horns and hoofs come iv und tear me in us ninny pieces as there are dol lars in that pile!" No sooner said than done. Reifsnyder, who bud lifted his calf off tbe wagon ta give it some water, now turned to tbe low Windows, wide open, and with a few vigor ous thrusts and twists of the tail the black calf lit iv their midst, bellowing as only a black calf can. One moment of supremo consternation; then, with blanched face* and calls on the Almighty, the four gam blers made for the door, leaving hats, coats, money and ull behind them In their wild flight to the town. Said old John: "I hollered fer'em to stop; that it was all fun; but it only made tbem run the harder, thinking th.;: devil was after them sure. I wont in «,ndgot my calf. Then soeiuji the money, und knowing old lti-rhtmeyer was in bed, I stroked it into my bat and took it along witb me. Did I keep it? Well, you see I was half r.feard of what I had done after the turn things took,so I went toold Judge Cly—r and tiled to straighten it out, like." "So it wasn't thu devil after ai,lf" he said with a genuine sigh of relief. "No, John, keep that money for your share of the fun, but lor the dear Lord's soke keep tbe story too." Well, he only told a few, hut somehow or other it leaked out, and now it is a Story that every Beading boy and girl has beard grandpa or grandma relate, and wonder how old Butcher .John camo to be rich so soon bus long ago ceased to be a wonder.— St. Lotus Republic lv ' Oepyrjjtrt, ISM.
