A JURY OF SIX.
Why the One-Eyed Man Pre ferred Colorado Justice to the Article Given Him in Chicago and St. Louis. "I hate to live in a new country,'" said Jones, "where there is no law." "Yer bet yer," chimed in Thompsou. "Law is the only thing that keeps us out of everlasting chains." "Yes, indeed," said a legal gen tleman present. "lt is the bulwark of the poor man's liberty, the shield which the strong arm of justice throws over the weak, the solace and the balsam of the unfortu nate and wronged, the--" "Oh, stop 'er," remarked the man with one eye, "I won't have it that way. Law is a boss invention for rascals of all grades. Give me a country where there is no law, and I can take care of myselt every time. Now, for instance, when I lived in Ohio I geot a dose of law that I will never forget. I was in partnership with a man named Butler, and one morning we found our cashier missing with $3,000. Ile had drag ed the safe and cut it out. Well, I start ed after him and caught him in Chicago, where he was splurging around on the money. Igot him arrested, and there was an examination. Well, all the facts were brought out and the defense moved that the case be dismissed, as the prosecution did not make out a case in the name of the firm, and that if there was a firm the co partnership had not been shown by any evidence before the court. To my astonish ment the court said the plea was O. K., and dismissed the case. Before I cotdd realize what was up, the thief had walked off. Well, I followed him to St. Louis, and there I tackled himnagain. I sent for my partner and we made a complete case, go ing for him in the name of the Common wealth and Smith, Butler & Co. Well, the lawyer for the defense claimed that the money being taken from a private drawer in the safe was my money exclusively, and that my partner had nothing to do with it; that the case should be prosocuted by me individually and not by the firm. The old 'bloke' who sat on the bench wiped his spctacles, grunted round awhile and dis missed the case. Away goes the man again. Then I got another hitch on him and tried to convict him of theft, but the court held that he should be charged with embezzlement. Some years after I tackled him again, and they let him go. Statutes of limitation, you see. Well, I concluded to give it up, and I did. "But about four years afterward 1 was down in Colorrdo and a man pointed to an other and said : "That fellow has just made $100,000 in a mining swindle." I looked, and it was my old cashier. I fol lowed him to the hotel, and nailed him in his room with the money. 'Now,' I says, 'Bill, do you recognize your old boss ?' and of course he did. Says I: 'Bill, I want that $3,000 you stole from me, with the interest, and all legal and traveling expenses," " 'Ah, you do?' said he; 'didn't the courts decide that-' "'Curse the courts,' says 1, putting a six-shooter a foot long under his nose. 'This is the sort of legal document that I'm traveling on now. This is the com plaint, warrant, indictment, judge, jury, verdict and sentence, all combined, and the firm af Colt & Co., New Haven, are my attorneys in the case. When they speak tkey talk straight to the point of your mug, you bloody larceny thief. Tfhis jury of six, "of which I am foreman, is liable to be dis charged at any moment. No technicality or statutes of limitation here, and a stay of proceedings won't last over four seconds. I want $10,000 to square my bill, or i'11 blow your blasted brains out.' Well, he passed over the money right away, and said he hoped there'd be nohard feelings. Now, there's some Colorado law for you, and it's the kind for me! Eh, boys ?" And the crowd, with one accord, concurred in the cheapness and efficacy of the plan by which a man could carry his court on his hip, in stead of appealing to the blind goddess in Chicago and St. Louis.-Salt Lake Tribune. Cured of Stammering. Miss Fox tells an amusing anecdote, in her journal, one which illustrates the val ue of certificates of cure: Mr. Gregory told us that, going the other day by steamer from Liverpool to London, he sat by an old gentleman who would not talk,tbut only answered his in quiries by nods or shakes of the head. When they went down to dinner, he de termined to make him speak if possible, so he proceeded. "You're going to London, I suppose?" A nod. "I shall be happy to meet you there; where are your quarters ?" There was no repelling this, so his friend with the energy of despair, broke out. "I-I-I-I-I-I'm g-g-g-going to D-D-D Doctor Br-Br-Br-Crewster to be c-c-c-cur ed of this sl-sl-slight impediment in my up-sp-ep-speech." At this instant a little white face which had not appeared before popped out from one of the berths and struck in, "Th-th-th that's the m-m-m-man wh-wh-who c-c-c curel me ! STRAYED.
