A Candid Wirness.
Chicago News.)
"A nervy, well-trained. weC-prei
pared witness is usually considered
ia difficult subject for a cross exam,
iner to handle," said Luther Laflin
Mills. "Yet sometimes this class of
witness is remarkably and startiingly
candid, and such candor comes as a
boon to the. cross-em m iner. Such a
witness is usually set up to prove an
alibi for the defendant charged with
crime. I met one noted example of
the kind who sought to prove that a
man whom I was prosecuting for burglary
was not at the place of the
crime at the time It was committed.
"This particular burglary had been
committed about 11 o'clock at night
in a store In the heart of the city. The
witness gave evidence that at that
very bour on the night in question
the defendant was in his company in j
a boarding house away out in the |
Xortkwest part of the city, about j
five miles from the scene of the
'" 'In what room in the house were
you and the defendant sitting that
night?' I asked the defendant.
" 'In the kitchen."
""Was there any other person with
" 'Xo; just us two. The rest of the
people of the house had gone tc bed."
" "How do you know it was J1
o'clock when you were sitting ihcrc?"
** "I knew it by the clock.*
" "Where was the clock?"
" 'In the kitchen."
"Whereabouts in the kitchen?"
" 'On the west wall back of the
" 'How were the hands of the clock
when you looked at it?'
" 'Just showing 11 o'clock."
"' "Xot even a few minutes before or
alter that hour?'
"" "Xo; just eleven."
"" "Why did you look at the clock?"
""The witness stared it me as if in
surprise and then answered, in. a
startling burst of candid explanation:
" 'Why, I looked at it because T expected
to be called as a witness in
this case." *'

The Negro Physician.
Southern "Workman. J
From the four Southern medical
schools for negroes over 1.20O stu

probably 1.000 of these are now in the
practice of this profession. These
physicians have a chance for .great
usefulness and power. In no calling
Is there more scope for the best leadership
in reform and true social prog
ress. A people straggling up from
such conditions as have enveloped the
negroes hitherto, first in Africa and
then in America, needs above all
things to be taught the simple laws

each religious duty and every
moral obligation. A treatment is

still emotional excesses, lay a strong
hand on beastly ferocities, enforce
cleanly habits, and make good homes.
Science must slay superstition. The
man of science is a physician.
Xegro physicians in their quiet, unostentatious
way are nobly undertaking
this service for their people. The
evidences of it may be seen in all the
larger cities. They arc doing more
than to follow the routine of a
lucrative practice: they are helping
to organize associations for improved
sanitation and social betterment: they

*core of cities, modest hospitals and

No Statesman Like Roosevelt.
The Rev. Charles "Wagner, author
of "The Simple Life." preached on
. Sunday afternoon to a large congregation
at his chapel, in the Rne de
L'Arquebusier. The humble flock
was greatly interested in the pastor's
estimate of President Roosevelt. He
said: "I found President Roosevelt

j the United States I believe he is the
greatest statesman on earth to-day.
Our statesmen in France have no
conception of the difficulties -with
which he has to contend.
"Here our leaders deal only with
one race, but in America the lawgivers

than are met here in a year.
From all quarters of the globe these
men go to America and become
Americans, and it is such a people.
