The verdict in tho Ardlamont murder trial strongly calls attention anew to the differences between judicial pro cedure in Scotland and that in Eng land and the United States. From the American point of view nothing could t* more unsatisfactory than a verdict of "not proven." It is impossible to imaginr euch a conclusion of an im portant trial being for a moment toler ated hero, by court or public, any more than the adopting of the French theory that the accused is to be deemed guilty intil he can prove his innocence. Yet it is unhesitatingly accepted by the Scotch, an eminently logical and ju dicial minded people, and the render ing of such a verdict in this latest and most sensational ease provokes no dis- Mtisfsction with the low, nor any de mand for a change of procedure. It is an Impressive example of the power of Jong continued custom and of the wide divergence of views held by men of actlmil intelligence and sense of right. The "not proven" verdict is by no means, however, tho only )ieciiUarity u( the .Scotch trial system. At tho very beginning of a cause there is no coron er's inquest nor public examination of tho prisoner. The examination is con ducted in private by the magistrate And official prosecutors—private prose cution being, by the way, unknown, tare in most trifling cases. The trial mu-t then come properly on, and un less the prisoner be brought, to trial tad the trial concluded within 110 days after his committal, he it entitled "to Ik set free forever from all question or process lor the crime with which he is charged." In tho trial itself the public •prosecutor opens his case without any preliminary speccli making, and at tho •end tho prisoner or his counsel has tho final sumlng-up and appeal to the jury. The jury consists of fifteen persons, the verdict of a majority of whom is sufficient to determine tho case; and, ns Already mentioned, if the jurors are hot legally convinced of the prisoner's guilt, nor satisfied that he is innocent, they may render a verdict of “not proven,” This last leaves Hie accused, of coarse, morally under a cloud for tho rest of his life, for, though he was not convicted' h* was not able to establish his innocence. Tho wretchedness this; may entail was strikingly portrayed by j the late Wilkie Collins in one of his i romance probably without tho slight- j ctt, exaggeration. , While the one feature of a Scotch . trial can never lie commended to tho American judicial system, there are ( others that might he to advantage, adopted here. The requiring a speedy trial is ope. The long delay in criminal cases in our courts has often caused much scandal, and has doubtless im paired the prestige of the judicial ad ministration. Considering the trouble sve often have to get a satisfactory jury of twelve, tho enlargement of the number to fifteen is hardly to be re garded with favor; but it in at least an open question whether the ends of jus tice would not be better served by mak ing a majority or ajtwp-thirds majority verdict sufficient. How Monson. tlm defendant in the ease just closed, would have fared in an American court, is a matter of curious if inconceivable spec ulation. Ho almost certainly would not have been tried so promptly, and the delay would have been painful to him, at least if innocent, and vexatious to lovers of justice in general. Yet in the end there would have been a ver dict of positive acquittal instead of tiic indeterminate thing that has now doomed him to a life-time of gloom and suspicion.—N. Y. Tribune. CAMPHOR TREES IN JAPAN. foreatiof the People Depleted by Rices* live Use, Ihe British consql at liiogo states dial the camphor tree of Japan is a huge symmetrical evergreen, not un like the linden, with a while blossom and a red berry. Some of the trees are fully fifteen feet in diameter and more fhan three hundred years old. Tho annual export of camphor averages about five million jiounds, of which about one-fourth goes to tho United bUilcs, a little to India and the re mainder to Europe. The reckless use of the timber lias nearly exhausted the forests owned by )be people. The government forests, however, are still so rich in camphor 'fees that they can bo relied upon to maintain alone the full average sup ply for twenty-five years, while trees arc now being planted and under pres ent scientific management are expected 'o be ready for use in twenty-five or thirty years.

As the train emerged from a deep and rocky cut it glided out upon a long 1 and high trestle work which carried the tracks over two ravines and a swamp. The man whom we all took to be a drummer for a sarsaparilla factory looked out and down and shuddered. Then he drew three or four whiffs on his cigar and shuddered some more. "A little nervous, eh?" queried one of tho crowd. ‘‘■Ves, end I hare cause to be,” was the reply. ‘Then you've been over this place be fore?" “Vos, two years ago. I feel as weak as a woman. Gentlemen, excuse me while ( lake a nip of brandy." "Did the train break through?"asked one of the group, after he had “nipped” and restored tho bottle. “No. Ah! thank heaven, wo arc over at last! All of you please take notice of that house among tho trees, and also remember tho little town we passed through about a mile back. My uncle lieu ben livea there in that house. 1 was here on a visit to him and went over to the. post office after my mail. I took tho highway in going, but to make a short cut I look the track on ray return. I hesitated some time at the trestle, Iml finally started to cross. Just wait a minute. I have it all down here in my note-book. When 1 tell you a thing for a fact I like to have the proofs. Tho trestle is eighty eight feet high in the center I had just, reached the center wfiqjt " "When you saw a train?" "Ves: 1 had reached the center of the trestle when I heard the whistle of a locomotive, and a moment, later caught sight of a freight train rounding the curve. There was only one possible way of escape. ” "It was a terrible situation.” “It was, I find I have it down here in my hook as *T. S.,’ which stands for terrible situation. Thank yon, sir, for yoltr appreciation!" , "1 ou did not leap to the ground be low?” "No. sir. If I had it would have been jotted down hero, which it isn't. I did not lose my presence of mind. Dropping down between the cross pieces, I swung with my feet anil hung on with my hands. You can judge of a man’s feelings with almost a hundred feet of space between his (ect and a groat mass of jagged rock.’ “Great spoons! but you rnuat have suffered a thousand deaths." "Let me see. No, 1 did not. I have it down here, and 1 only suffered ~50 deaths. I don't want to lay claim to 350 deaths to which I have, no legal right. When 1 toll a story, I tell it ex actly as things happened. I hung there, swaying to and fro." "And the train passed over you?" “Well, no, it didn't. I should have made a note of it if such had been the case. I hung there for seventeen long minutes-—minutes which seemed never ending to me." "You lived a mouth in those few minutes." “Nat, q'uito a month. I have it down that I lived only twenty-six days, and 1 don't want anything that doesn’t be long to me.” "But did it take tho train seventeen minutes to pass over you?” persisted the inquirer. •'t)h, no." "Then how was it?" "Why, the train side-tracked at the other side, yon see, and I hung on until one of the brakoinen walked out to me and said if 1 wasn't In tho circus busi ness to stay, I’d bettor get out of that." "But I don't exactly sec.” "Oh, there is nothing to see. I got off tho bridge all right, with three hours to spare before another train came along. I was very much obliged to tho brakeman—very much. 1 might have hung there all day, you know yes, I have it down here in my book that I was V. M. 0., which means very much obliged. lam not a nervous man by nature, but can you wonder that 1 shudder and grow weak in tho knees whenever I pass over this trestle?" No one said a word for a long min ute. Then the questioner softly queried; "That was a true story, wasn’t it?'* "As true as truth itself,” was the sol emn reply. “Well, it was a mighty poor story, and this crowd doesn't want any more like it. 1 1 you can’t tell a lie get out tf here and give your room lo a man who can.”—Detroit Free Press.

He picked up tho glass nervously, the cowboy watching him fiercely and toy ing with his gun, and tasted it. Then ho put it down again. "Drink,” growled the cowboy. "I guess not,” replied the tenderfoot "Well, I guesa yes,” said the cowboy, drawing his revolver. The tenderfoot took one look fit the glass of liquor and squared himself be fore his host. “.Shoot," ho said, in a tone of com mand.

For generations it has been the cus tom to mix the batter for buckwheat cakes with yeast or emptyings, retain ing a portion of the batter left over from one morning to raise the cakes for the following day. If kept too warm, or not used prompt ly. this batter becomes excessively sour and objectionable. Buckwheat cakes raised by this means are more often sour or heavy than light and sweet. If eaten daily they distress the stomach and cause skin eruptions and itching. Instead of the old-fashioned way we have been making buckwheat cakes this winter with Royal Baking Powder, mixing the batter fresh daily, and find the result wonderfully satisfactory. They arc uniformly light and sweet, more palatable and wholesome, and can be eaten continuously without the slightest digestive inconvenience. Be sides they are mixed and baked in a moment, requiring no time to rise Following is the receipt used: Two cups of pure buckwheat flour (not “prepared" or mixed); one cup of wheat flour, two tablespoons of Royal Baking Powder and one-half tcaspoon ful of salt, all sifted well together. Mix with milk into a thin batter and bake at once on a hot griddle. Once properly tested from this receipt, no other buckwheat will find its way to your table.—Domestic Cooker}'.
