Stiidirs from I.lfr. The English Court of Chancery would seem incomplete without little Miss Elite and the Man from Shropshire. S.i would the New York Supreme Court without the person and papers of Mr. Adolphus Hcintzlemann. Chief of the liar and Advocate-General of the Human Race. The casual visitor loitering through the corridors of the County Court-house in City Hall Park is 1'kely to see an undersized old man, with a strongly marked Teutonic face, surrounded by a tumbled mass of grizzly hair and heard, dre—cd in a suit of ru-ty black, and with a large bundle of papers under bis arm. hurrying with swift, nervous tread in the direction of one or the other court-room. The little man's face is set like a flint, and his dark eyes gleam from under shaggy brow- with a -trained intentness that i almo-t painful. 11c i- in dead earnest. He < vidently has on hand business, im portant business, which brooks no delay. Tint visitor’s mental comment prob ably is that the man is a lawyer of the stripe of Sampson Rrass, or Mr. Pell, “dear friend of the late Lord Chancel lor,’’ hastening to answer “Ready” to the call of the calendar; and he pities the clients who have committed their cau-es to such hands, if outward ap pearances form any criterion by which to judge of the measure of success at tendant upon his advocacy. Hut com ment and sympathy are alike mis placed. Mr. Heiutzlemann is not so fortunate as to bear vicariously’ the burden of liti gation, with the ulemate certainty of tees to lighten the load. He is, or rather was, a suitor himself, and hi< errand now is to forward the interests of his .-n't in his own proper person. For he can not grasp the fa t that his ea-e is no longer before the courts, but has been res adjudicatu these many years. His case is a sufficiently sad one. Years ago he was a clever and success ful inventor: and to-day, in all likeli hood. the fruits of his genius are in active use by hundred- who do not know, lmr would be interested in knowing, that the inventive faculty which is the means of serving their convenience or augmenting their wealth has lost its power: and that the facile brain to which they are so much indebted is eclipsed forever under tho dark shadow of insanity With the proverbial bad fortune of his kind, be sowed and others reaped: lie labored and they entered into his labors. On one ill-fated day he brought an action to recover possession of a valuable patent, for which he <■1 dined not to have received the stipu lated compensation. The equities mav hate been in his favor. Who knows? Hut the law was against him. His ease was tried and an a 1 verse verdict ren dered. lie appealed, and the appeal "a- decided in his oppon ait's favor. I lien came the end of things for him. lie went mad. Nor was it wonderful that lie should do so. As the genial Autocrat says, somewhere in those inimitabl essays of his: “In-anity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked. Good mental machinery ought to break its own wheels and levers if anything is thrust among them suddenly which tends to i stop them or reverse their motion. A weak mind docs not accumulate force enough to hurt itself: stupidity often sat es a man from going mad.” At all events, stupidity did not save Mr Heiutzlemann. His wrongs, real or imagined, upset the delicate balance : of bis mind, and left in chaos whatoncc 1 was coherent and co-ordinate. The, curious may find the details of his case reported in the published Law Reports of the State. His delusion assumes no violent or; repulsive form. It simply consists in the belief that his suit is still before tile ! comts, and in the conviction that event- | ually, can he but obtain a hearing, the ! adverse decision will be reversed or! modified, atul lie reinstated in his lost i possessions. And so, every day, sum mer and winter, in season and out of season, lie marches lip to the clerk's desk, with his inseparable bundle of papers, and courteously asks in highly Germanized English: “Mr. Clerk, haf you put mine case on the calendar to-dav?” “No, Mr. Hcintzlemann,” the clerk invariably replies, “it is not on to day.” “ Why haf you not?” he asks, greatly surprised. •• We hadn’t room for it to-day.” “Can I see the Chudge?” “No, he’s busy.” “ Then,” he continues, “can 1 my mo tion make to-day?” “ Not>it is not motion day.” “That makes no different,” savs Mr. lleintzlemann, with a wave of tfie hand. “Until my ease is decided there is no court, no Chudge, no anything.” This formula gone through he turns to the officer in charge, gravely selects a paper from the bundle, hands it over with the strict injunction that it be car ried imuiedi&ielv to the Judge, and, ceremoniously saluting all present, de parts in the confident assurance that the morrow will tindhis case on thecal endar, and the court in readiness to pro ceed with the argument of his long-de layed motion. Tb* rrmrt officer* deal very gen-1 tly with Mr. Heintzlemann. He is a privileged character. Accus tomed as they art' to making j short work of the army of eranks who 1 periodically disturb the peace or ob struct the wheel* of justice with their vagaries, they still have a tender spot in their heart's for hint, and are never too busy to answer his inquiries respect ing the momentous suit, or to comfort him with the assurance that some dav his much-hoped-for “modification’- will he granted. To Mr. Heintzlemann"s mind, all law, order, liberty anil progress ceased when the obnoxious judgment was pro nounced, and, pending its reversal, all monnrehs reign without title, all courts sit without authority, and all govern ment is usurpation in short, that it is Anarchy and Old Night come again. He conceives himself to he the incar nation of outraged justice, cjid. there fore, the representative head and ad vocate-general of the human race, lie is firmly convinced that the future his tory of the world is closely bound up with the issues of his controversy. Kverv passing event has some occult bearing upon it, and every public ca lamity or crime is a necessary corollary , to it. Accordingly, stray references t >J contemporaneous occurrences arc to he found scattered through his volumi nous papers. Nothing conics amiss to him. The Klcctoral Commission, the Centennial Kxposition. the assassina tions of the late Czar of Russia and of President (larliehl. the war between Pe ru and Chili, the Star-Route trials, the 1 building of the Brooklyn bridge and the erection of the Bartholdi statue arc all in some way or oilier connected with his ease, and all find mention in his docu ments. Nothing pleases hint <o much as to gain the car of a Judge to whom he maybe unknown. If he lie so fortunate as to elude the vigilance of the court officer, lie immediately pours forth a t rront of unmeaning broken English, freely interlarded with scraps of bat in i and other foreign tongues, fully per ! suaded that at last he i- making head- j | way. and tardy restitution is about tobc I granted. When the officer ijuietly checks him, he makes no objection, but instantly leaves tlie court with his customary rapid stride, contented to postpone the presentation of his case until a more favorable opportunity shall ; occur. Has the reader any curiosity to see a | specimen of Mr. Hcint/lemann’s “doeu- . incuts?" Let him run his eye over the \ ' subjoined extract and then pronounce j upon its value as a le^al pleading: Takr Noth k.—I’pon these nrueeiMlinv*, as t* e undersigned with the He fere os report her* tot<*re presc»nted t> the (’ourts and the I Corp nation f’ounsel ami to the District At-j torney s so tar ms it iror* and herein ait r ro ! terie i to as publie reply and this lejral eduea I tion disclosure.

District courts, police courts, or I even an Assembly Investigating Com | inittee are alike acceptable. Here is an order presented by him to one of the I lower courts, and probably signed by | the Judge with a view of giving him a > transient taste of the pleasures of ini- j pending victory: It appearing to my satisfaction that Mr. ! Adolphus Hcintzicmann Is the Chief of the liar, and is clothed with all rights, privilege. | honor and justiee. Ordered, that the Justiee of said Court is in full sympathy with the said Heint/Jeiimnn. 1 and tnat he has sworn that his obligation is in j all respects toward the said Hcintzicmann to do everything to his aid and advantage for the modification of id liarb. p. 573. even unto | dentil, as our inviolable rights and only legal ! settled citizen title, as registered in rein. This last paper, however, bears the imprint of another hand than Mr. Heintzlemanns. It is too coherent to be liis production. It contains sen- | tenees. His papers never do. It is pathetic to note His reference to j i the book in which his case is reported. | Like King Charles’s head in Mr. Dick’s ! Memorials, this allusion to <il Barb., •j7J, is sure to crop up sooner or later in all bis documents. Ilis poor be fogged intellect lias clung to this one I fact, or penunibral shallow of a fact, 1 when all else lias gone by the board. He has, years ago, forgotten what his i ease was about. And yet he knows, I and is careful to mention where the re- j 1 port of it is to lie found. Vigorous as j are the vituperative epithets (whatever they may mean) which are so thickly j besprinkled over his documents, Mr. j Heintzlemann takes pains to explain | that lie is actuated by no motives of [ resentment or ill-will. On the contrary, | his arduous labors are prompted by! charity towards His fellows and intense anxiety for tlieir welfare. “I haf no bad feeling for the Court,” says lie. “I spend my time in working | for their goot. I do this not only for j me and mine children, but for the I < 'budges and the citizens and the conn- I try. and for the whole world.” It is impossible to describe the comic sweep of t He hands with which he illus trates the all-embracing character of his advocacy. Atlas is nothing to him. He does not condescend to reason or arguments. He states axioms- self evident truths—conclusions, which from their weight and cogency amount to mathematical demonstrations. “You see dot,” he says, emphatical ly, pointing out some phrases in his last document. “You see I say dere 'S/are decisis !c* nervus rerum, in forma pau peris” “How can they get ofer dot?” he I asks, with a confident smile, and his J listeners are bound to admit that it is ( unanswerable. He is no pauper. He begs or bor rows from no one. The shock that laid his mind in ruins left unharmed the skill and cunning of his hands. So he labors at engraving or some other skilled mechanical work, and is chargeable to no man. Mr. Heintzlemann is not the only one of his kind to whom the Hulls of Jus tice present irresistible attractions. Other eccentric characters from time to time gravitate toward the same center. For instance, there is, or rather was, Mrs. Mayfield, owner in fee simple of the court-house, “with all the appur tenances thereto belonging.” She was a spare old lady, neatly drcSsed in black, carrying always an old-fashioned reticule. She used at intervals to visit the court-house for the purpose of col lecting her rents. Marching with slow and stately steps into one of the rooms she would approach the railing In front of the bench. If her advent passed un noticed, she dived into the depths of her reticule, and, producing therefrom an enormous brass key, presumably the in signia of ownership, rapped with great solemnity upon the railing until the at tent ion of some official was attracted. I This accomplished, she would sav: ••Good morning. 1 linve called for | my rent, if it is quite convenient.” “ Certainly. Mrs. Maytield, the officer i would reply; " I quite forgot to send it. I'm very norrv yoti^ had the trouble of coining for it.1’ Mrs. Maytield bad no stated |H»riod* at which she collected her rent, some times calling twice in a fortnight, at others letting it accumulate for months. Nor had she any live 1 rental valua j tioti a quarter, a dime, or even a nickel would suffice. Indeed, the old lady must have regarded the sum paid more as an acknowledgment of ownership than anything, so little re latlon did it bear to the value of her property. She ignored altogether the formality of reivipts. justly deeming, i no doubt, that the city might safely rely on her sense of honor not to demand the j same rent over again. Before leaving she would go round tilt room on a tour of inspection to satisfy herself that the premises wore Wing kept in tenantable repair, and would gravely suggest any little alteration inar j rangements that would occur to her as being likely to impair the value of the realty. These w.se prveaut ons taken against the nccess ty of a suit for dilapi dations at the clo-c of the tenancy , she would pocket her rent and depart. Then, again, there is Braving Batsey. He comes occasionally, just as the Judges are out taking their noonday recess, and. stationing him-elf in the doorway of the court-room, mutters a short prayer. Whether it he ritual or extempore, and who may be the special objects of his petitions beneli, bar, suitors or witnesses are alike matters of mystery, inasmuch as bis ut terances are so rapid and muffled as to be totally unintelligible. His act of de votion aceomplislied. lie swiftly moves toward another part of the court there again to perform his self-imposed duty, lie is strictly impartial, conferring the benefits of his intercessory offering on every room in the building, not omit ting even the Comptroller's office and the Bureau for the Collection of Ar rears. What ideas lie may have re specting the necessity or value of his services no one knows, for lie speaks to no one. He is convinced, no doubt, that his presence and prayers are abso lutely essential to the welfare, if not. indeed, the existence of the building and its inmates. One thing, at least, is certain. If he does no good, lie does no harm, and his lunacy might easily assume a more objectionable form. Yet an other demented amicus curia is a man who has once or twice made liis appearance, claiming the credit of and compensation fur the invention of the submarine telegraph, the elabora tion of t ho entire postal system of the United States, and the establish ment of Civil-Service reform. Consid ering the important character of these achievements, and tludr great national value, this public bentactor is very moderate in his demands. He usually presents his claim in a handwriting very unlike what one would espeet as coining from such a gifted individual. It begins: “ 1 claim an order from the Supreme Court for one hundred thousand dol lnrs.” It then specifics the valuable services just mentioned, as being the items on which the claim is based, and ; concludes with a statement that, being ! in immediate need, small installment i on account will l.e very acceptable, lie is considerate enough to intimate that if it be not convenient to give immedi ate attention to bis demand be will call again. It goes without saying, that lie , alwavs is told to eall again. Latterly, too, the court-house has ■ been honored by the visits of a middle aged woman with a Celtic face, a determined expression, and a strong accent. She has suffered “depredation of character” at the hands of some person or persons unknown, through which she has been “deprived I of the means of earning a livelihood.' i Site announces her intention of attend ing the sessions of the courts until one [ or other of the Judges removes this dis ability. It is to be hoped that sooner or later some way will lie found to ac | complish this good lady's wishes, for ! she is an unfortunate soul and has the staying power of Coleridge’s “Ancient Mariner.” Perhaps the most unintelligible rep resentative of the gentts is an Israelite who haunts the corridors and favors all comers with a long and rambling ethnological disquisition on two kinds of Jews whom he calls Reuben Jews and Susan Jews, for Which latter class, it may lie said, he entertains the most supreme contempt. He kindly volun teers the information that Susan is not only in Jerusalem, but in New York and all over the world. It is possible he may be right. Susan is a tolerably ubiquitous person age. When questioned as to the identi ty of the particular Susan to whom he lias reference, he waves his hand im patiently and informs his questioner that he can find out all about it in the Hook of Esther. He generally closes his discourse with the following puz zling conundrum: “Can they take away mine property on a six-days’ summons, without name, without date and without amount?” Naturally, the person questioned usually comforts our friend with a prompt and decided answer in the neg ative, but is met immediately by the perfectly crushing query: “Then why don’t they pay me my rent?” Why, indeed? Perhaps, though, it is that they haven’t got the money. All these lesser lights, however, pale before Mr. Heintzlemann. They lack the element of permanence. Their visits are intermittent, and they soon tire. Not so, he. Their orbits are erratic, uncertain, cometary. He alone is diur nal and eternal. Jurors, suitors and witnesses come and go; lawyers are ad mitted, practice and depart for new tieldsjof usefulness: Judges are elected, serve and retire; but he goes on for ever. Poor Mr. Heintzlemann! He will no doubt keep on tiling his documents with the clerk, and seeking an opportunity to argue his motion, until the day couies when he shall present his case to the highest court of last resort, and the long-wished-for “modification” denied him on earth beat last granted. Then, perhaps, the arrested faculties shall be set free to lind exercise in a larger sphere of beneficent activities, and the dim and troubled years of his mental bondage shall seem “as when one ! awaketh in the morning, and behold, it was a dream.”—Frederick Davy a Storey, in The Manhattan. —A rash man: “Yes,” said Fogg, “ Dr. Pillroller is a brave man, no doubt, but he carries his bravery too far.

Au English gardener says lie does not agree with those who say that one good weeding is worth two hoeings. lie savs: "Never weed a crop in which a hoe can be used, not so much for the sake of destroying weeds, which must lie the ease if the hoeing be well done, as for increasing the porosity of the soil, to allow the air and water to pene trate freely through it. Oftentimes there is more benefit derived by crops from keeping them well hoed than there is from tiie manure applied. —A correspondent of the Cottntr>i (I: nCctnaa deprecates the practice of burning weeds, stubble and vegetable refuse on the farm, saying that the soil is being deprived of the very material absolutely necessary to its permanent fertility both plant food and the ca pacity for holding moisture, without which the former is comparatively use less. To this destruction of vegetable matter is due the impoverishment of the soil far more than to exhaustion by the crops, and not until the destrm tive cus tom is stopped can anything like former fertility be restored. kitchen Progress.

Farmers often remark when sowing grain that small grain if plump is iii't as good for seed as the largest. This is undoubtedly a great mistake, not only from the fact that it will not produce crops of good quality under the great general ride that like produces like and that the best seed mii-t produce the best crops, but that the individual plant can not under the same circumstances ob tain so good start when the seed is small or inferior from any cause. That small seed will grow or that shrunken seed may produce a plant is true, but it will not produce so strong and vigorous plants as tlie large plump kernel. The following on this point is from remarks by l)r. Sturtevant concerning the corn plant, but which will apply as well to other grains: There are two physiological processes which tire con cerned in the nutrition of plants. The lirst is assimilation, through which the plant food is taken, through the root cud through the leaf, in the presence ol suulight and stored in the plant. Then by a process called metastasis, this stoi<?il material from the air is deoxy dized and formed into soluble material designed for the support of growth ot for storage. It therefore follows that in th* darkness a plant can only grow from the material which has hitherto been elaborated, and when this elabo rated material has been utilized there can be no more growth until, through the action of the sun, new material is supplied by assimilation. The corn kernel is composed of a gertn or chit, surrounded by a mass ol material placed there for the use of the germinating plantlct. The distance to which the plant can grow from the light is determined by the amount of this preserved food. Consequently the large seed is enabled to force its plant let through a greater depth of soil on its way to the surface than is the small seed. The seed vegetates tinder one-half incli of soil more quickly than under the six inches, and the grow th, instead of being massed into extension of stem, passes into the formation of leaf, and the increasing of the organs of assimU lation.—Detroit Vest, A Coxon****** speaking one day.

J9HR BULLS FOR THE CURE OF FEVER and AGUE Or CHILLS and FEVER. AND ALL MALARIAL DISEASES. The proprietor of this celebrated medicine justly claims for it a superiority over ali rem edies ever offered to the public for the SAFE, CERTAIN, SPEEDY and PERMANENT cure of Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, wheth er of short or longstanding. He refers to the entire Western and Southern country to bear him testimony to the truth of the assertion that in no case whatever will it fail to cure if the directions'are strictly followed and carried out. In a great many cases a single dose has been sufficient for a cure, and whole families havo been cured by a single bottle, with aper I feet restoration of the general health. It is, however, prudent, and in every case more cer tain to cure, if its use is continued in smaller ; doses for a week or two after the disease has been checked, more especially in difficult and long-standing cases. Usually this medicine will not require any aid to keep the bowels in good order. Should the patient, however, re quire a cathartic medicine, after having taken three or four dotes of the Tonic, a single dose of BULL’S VEGETABLE FAMILY PILLS ; will be sufficient. _ OR.

Some blood is bad because it is poor and weak. Some is bad because it contains impurities. Some men have such bad blood that the wonder is it does not poison the mosquitoes who come to bite them, The rich red color of good blood is owing to the iron winch is present Blood which has not enough iron in it is always unsatisfactory. The per son in whose veins it circulates cannot be said to enjoy good health. The efforts of expert chemists to produce a preparation of iron which can be assimilated with the blood have resulted in tnat perfect preparation which is an important part of Brown’s Iron Bitters. It is the only one which freely enters into the blood. It is the only one which accomplishes the desired good. Weak, poor, thin blood may be made rich and strong, and impure blood may be purified by the use of that Great Iron Medicine, Brown's Iron Billers. S And will completely change tha blood in the entire system in three months.
