THE EXPERT'S THEORY. | It Was Too li\elii*l»e und Weakened [ Mini h.« n Wltnewa. On • of the older members of the Bal timore bar lells this anecdote of the late Severn Teackle Wallls as illustrat ing the cleverness and sarcasm of Mr. Wallis: Mr. Wallis was defending the will of a wealthy testator, and, as the law yer* say. when the estate Is large a lawyer "will wrestle with a will with a will." A prominent physician was called to testify for those contesting the wll*.. The doctor became restless under tb? lengthy and exhaustive cross examlna tioi» of Mr. Wallis, and finally he petu lantly exclaimed: "Oh, Mr. Wallls, I believe the testa tor was insane!" Mr. Wallis kept his temper and said quietly: "Doctor, you are the first per son who has ever intimated in or out of court that the testator was insane. Why do you say he was insane?" "I believe," the doctor replied, "that every man Is more or less insane on some one subject." "Is It your deliberate professional opinion," Mr. Wallis then asked, "ex pressed here in court under oath, that every man is more or less Insane on some subject?" "Yes," the doctor replied; "I will say here under oath that from my reading, knowledge and experience I believe that every man is more or less insane on some one subject." Then Mr. Wallls said in that fine tone of sarcasm for which he was not ed, "Doctor, lias it ever occurred to you that you are insane on tbe subject of Insanity?" Immediately the doctor fired up and exclaimed, "But, Mr. Wallis, I am not insane!" Mr. Wallis arose and said: "Doctor, according to your own sworn theory, you must be insane on some subject. 1 pronounce you Insane on the subject of insanity." Court, Jury and spectators laughed aloud, and nothing more was said about the testator being insane.—Baltimore Sun. ITEMS OF INTEREST.

The brave took It gingerly, re moved the wrapper, smelled it and bit into the toothsome looking article. With a deep grunt of displeasure he handed it back to tbe drug clerk. With a disgusted look he remarked, "Heap smell!" The clerk began to tremble, and the Indian pointed to a perfume bottle In the showcase. The bottle of perfume was handed to hiin. The Indian held It In both hands for a moment, closely scrutinizing it.

"The most Impressive scene I ever wit nessed occurred at a state convention, aaid a Spokane (Wash.) man."ln 188# a delegate from Spokane to the state con vention owed to a member of the third house a large sum of money. As security the lobbyist held a mortgage on the dele gate's home. For certain reasons and to further certain ends the lotobylet dealred to be present upou the floor of this con vention and requested the delegate to give up his seat to him. The delegate, know ing that by so doing he would not alone be false to hia constituents but that he would also enable the lobbyist to further certain corrupt schemes to the injury of the taxpayers, refused. Thereupon the lobbyist said to him, 'lf you don't give me your seat in that convention, I will fore close the mortgage I hold upon your home and throw your wife and children out upon the street.' The delegate, aorely de pressed by the ruin that threatened hitn, appealed to a friend for assistance. The story spread like wildfire, asd the isosl Intense indignation ensued. So bitter was the feeling it engendered that had the lobbyist not escaped his life woujfl unquestionably have been in danger. He left the state and never dared to return. "This Incident enabled Patrick Henry Winston, the silver tongued, to make probably the most dramatic speech of his career. The night the story leaked out the caucus waa held, and, taking thla in cident as his text, Winston made an im passioned speech. When he came to its peroration, he walked down the central aisle of the convention, saying, 'Do you know what I would have done had that man made that proposition to me?' "He then drew from his coat a clasped hunting knife, and springing open its seven inch blade he held it above hie head in his right hand. " 'Had he made that proposition to me,' he went on, 'I would have burled this dagger in his foul breaat and have insulted my Deity by offering on the altar of liberty the most putrid hearted Shy lock that ever disgraced this or any other country!' For an iDstant there ensued a dead quiet, and then the convention rose to Its feet with a wild yell.

"General Forrest of the Confederate anny," said an ex Confederate officer, "was a military genius of the first rsnk. Without previous training or any developed taste in that direction he went into the army from a place as overseer and attained commanding rank absolutely by merit. Bough and uncouth at first, he became in later life a gentleman whom it was a pleasuic to meet and to know. I re ember > ti one occasion some time aft er the v> sir coming up the Potomac with him I wanted to Introduce a young woman who was under my es cort. He said he was flattered by the request, but that he could not meet her unless she knew perfectly well who he was and that he was not held in high esteem by the northern people chiefly on account of the Fort Pillow affair. I assured him that she was ful ly apprised of his record, and then he went with me to meet her, and she told me later she had never met a more at tractive man. "Earlier in his career that is, be fore he had learned to spell—he was asked by a young lady to put his auto graph In her album. He wrote his name as requested and under it his title, 'ma jor general of calvary,' as he spelled It. The lady called his attention to It in a very delicate way, and he looked at it a moment, and with a full conscious ness that he was lacking In that regard and with a beautiful and scarcely to be expected humility he said, 'Let it stand to show how ignorant General Forrest Is.' There are not many men who would have done that I imagine, and It was the little things that showed the man's true greatness."—New York Sun. Joe Maatoa'i Pistols. Joe Manton, the famous gunmaker, was crossing Hounslow heath when he was stopped by a highwayman. On hearing the summons to "stand and de liver" Manton recognized a pistol of his own make leveled at his head. "Why, confound it, you rascal," cried the in dignant gunmaker, "I'm Joe Manton, and that's one of my pistols you've got. How dare you try to rob me!" "Oh, you're Joe Manton, are you?" said the highwayman coolly. "Well, you charg ed me 10 guineas for this brace of pis tols, which I call a confounded swin dle, though I admit they're a good pair of barkers. Now I mean to be quits with you. Hand me over 10 guineas, and I'll let you go because you're Joe Manton, though I know you have got £SO at least about you." Joseph swallowed his wrath and promptly paid the 10 guineas. But he never forgave the highwayman for get ting a brace of his best pistols for nix, and he made himself a special double gun with barrels barely two feet long, which he always carried about with him afterward when traveling and christened "The Highwayman's Mas ter."

METHODS OF SUICIDE. ■•u Df«|ifrntf I'erionn Adopt l#re « HIMHK Style# of Dentractlon. "The remarkable methods several sui cides have adopted in this city recently call attention to the fact that methods of self destruction are largely matters of suggestion," said a doctor. "When a man gets in that condition where he wants to die, he has little inventive ability and adopts the method that has been brought to his mind. You will no tice that after one person kills himself with acid there follows a long list of acid suicides. It is the same with any unusual method. One person gets up an original way, and that inspires the next one to try his hand until we have a whole series of such grewsome nov- I elties. "I have proved this theory. Several years ago I was discussing this feature of suicide with several friends, includ ing the coroner. They ridiculed my theory. I offered to prove it. It hap- [ pened that shooting and hanging were j popular just then. I wrote an article ! for a newspaper on the horrors of strangulation and pistol wounds and > explained the ease with which one I could kill himself with prussic acid, j Death from prussic acid, you know, is | absolutely Instantaneous and, many be- r lleve, painless. There had not been a j suicide with this acid for more than a year, but within a week after the arti- i cle was published there were four, and one of the unfortunates had clippings of my article in his pocket. "Of course I was accused of killing these four by suggestion, but I was never arrested and do not feel guilty, for when once a person has decided to kill himself the method is a slight mat ter. No person in his right mind will commit suicide. We all know in our sane moments of easy ways to end life, but when In the suicidal frame of mind nature seems to rob us of our reason in this direction, as if in a desperate hope of preventing the sacrifice." —New York Mail and Express. ___ HOUSES ON"MADE"GROUND The Heniiou They Teem With Mala ria uud \OSIOUN Good gravel has so largely come into ! request that many suburban lands with that valuable substratum are quarried to a considerable depth be fore being sold on building leases. But It is essential to restore a level surface, as even the most speculative builder would hesitate to run up "neat villa residences" in deep holes. The owner frequently gets over this difficulty by allowing urban refuse to be shot into the excavation; in many cases he even exacts a small sum for every load tilted on his ground. The surface being thus leveled, a year or two are allow d for the soil to sink and become compact. Occasionally grass is sown to give a natural appearance to the spot. All is now in readiness for the build er, who proceeds to lay the foundation for his "terraces," "avenues" and "gar dens," which he subsequently adver tises as "on gravel soil." So they are, but between their ground floors ai d the gravel lies a thick stratum of partially decomposed rubbish, teaming with malaria, and not for many years will the deposits cease to give off noxious gases. But the tenant, coming from a dif ferent locality, knows nothing of the "making" process to which the plot has been subjected. When, therefore, 111 health dogs his family, he puts it down to defective drainage or some other structural deficiency and spend* money freely on remedial measures without the least beueflt.

Future Population. What will the population of London be in 1950? This is no mere question of curiosity. It must shortly engage parliament, for it is because the an swers given to It are so divergent that London's water supply question is so complex. Each plan that is proposed for Insuring to Londoners enough wa ter to drink and bathe in is based on a calculation of London's probable popu lation 50 years hence. Boyal commis sions and experts have put the figure at anything from 15,000,000 to 50,000,- 000. Other authorities denounce these conjectures as absurd, and an increase to 12,000,000 is predicted as the more likely Inflation. A city of that popula tion is sufficiently appalling to put one In love with the still more sober esti mate of Mr. Fryee Williams, who in a paper read some years ago before the Statistical society argued that a limit Is placed on all sublunary things and that the breaking point In London's growth will be reached when her chil dren number B,ooo,ooo.—Loudon Chron icle. How to Walk Erect. Many growing girls are inclined to stoop, and well meaning persons often advocate braces or shoulder straps as a means of correcting the tendency. The braces may force an upright carriage, but, says a scientific writer, they do not give the wearer uny means of maintain ing it, since they prevent the exercise of those muscles which should be trained to produce an erect figure. Any exercise which strengthens the muscles of the back and shoulders will aid in correcting this defect. Old fashioned mothers used to drill their stooping daughters to walk with a plate carried ou their head, and this is really a very good practice. High pillows and very soft mattresses are blamed as an aid in producing this de fect, and without a doubt a flat, rather hard bed, with low pillows, is preferable for growing children. —Scottish Ameri can. A Historic Throne. The biggest episcopal throne in Eu rope is at the Exeter cathedral.

The pieces were safely secured in many hiding places, and when peace was re stored the pieces were put together again without the aid of a single nail. Fought For His Life.
