S cene in a k bntdck V C ourt
house:.— i d the good old time» in
Kentucky, "when substantial just
ice" wäB administered in a log cabii),
alter a very free and easy manner, a
suit, was brought to recover certain
moneys which it was dlleged plain
tiff had beén defrauded out of by the
ingénions operation known as "thim
ble rigging." In the course of the,
trial, plaintiff's counsel, who hap
pened to be an "expert," undertook
to enlighten the court as to the
modus operandi of the performance.
Putting himself into position, he
firodaced the three cups and "the
ittle joker," and proceeded, suiting
the action to the Word:
"Then may it please the court,
the defendant placing the cups on
Iiis knee thus, began shifting them
so, offering to bet that my client t
could not tell under which enp was
'the little joker,meaning thereby,
may it please thé court, this ball,
with the intention of defrauding my
client of the sum thus wagered. For
instance, when I raise the cap bo,
your honor supposes that you see
the ball.",
"Suppose I see !" interrupted the
judge, who had closely watched thd
performance, and was Bare that he
deteçted the ball, as one of the caps
was accidentally raised. "Why, any
fooï'can Bee wùere it is, and bet on
it, and be sure to win. Thete ain't
no ! defraudin' thar."
"Perhaps your honor W6uld like
to go a V on it ?" insinuated the
C unsel.
"Go a V? Yes, and double that,
too, and here's the rhino. It is
under the middle cup "
"I'll go a V on that," said the
foreman of the jury.
«'And I, and I," joined in the
jurors, one after the other, until each
one had invested his pile.
"Up !" said his honor.
"Up" it was, but the "little
joker" had mysteriously disappeared.
Judge and jury were enlightened,
and found no difficulty in bringing
in a verdict In faror of the plaintiff
on the ground that it was the
"dt rudest kind o' defraudin." m
V ampyreb F attening on the
L ife-blood of the N ation .—Jay
Cook is worth fifteen millions of dol
lars. He made his fange fortune in
manipulating that "public blessing,"
the three thousand million debt.
Six millions of working men are
sweating and toiling to keep up the
interest on this fifteen millions, made
in four short years, and the interest on
the balance of the three thousand mil
lions, other money-bloated, non-pro
ducers hold, in shape of public bonds.
The mechanic works ten hours a day ;
three hours a day, he toils for the Jay
Cook tribe, who quarterly expect
their interest. The working man
pays for all he or his family require,
double what he would otherwise
have to pay, had we none of the Jay
Cook class of public bond holders to
take care of. The Jay Cook Co.,
tbe great capitalists of the country,
live in luxury, and have not a per
sonal want ungratified ; while starva
tion is taking place in the ruined
South, and hundreds of thousands
in the North are approaching that
condition. Oily tongues, and facile
pens, are painting the "blessings of
a public debt," while penury and
want are spreading over the land.
The riches of the bondholders are the
burdens of the people.— New York
Day Booh.
A B right L ight .—"JohnBon, you
say Brown was the man who robbed
you ?"
*'Ye», sir."
"Was it moonlight when it took
place ?"
"No, sir."
"Was it starlight ?"
"No ; It was so dark you couldn't
see your hand before your face."
"Well, was there any light shin
ing from any bouse near by?"
"Why, no: there wasn't a house
within a mile of us."
"Well, then, if there was no moon,
no starlight, no light from any house,
and so dark that you couldn't see
your band before your face, how is it
that you are so positive that Brown
was the man, and bow did you see
him ?"
"Why, you see, when the fellow
struck me, the fire flew out of my
eyes so bright that you might sea to
pick up a pin."
