By any district attorney: "What is your name, please?" "I object, this witness cannot possibly remember what she was christened, and the family bible would be the best evidence." "I withdraw the question. What are you com monly called?" Objected to on the ground that it is not shown that the witness is an expert on "common callings." "I will change the form of the question—what name are you known by?" Objection on the ground that it is hearsay, that it is immaterial; not original evidence, and that no foundation has been laid for it by showing that the witness has any name. Objection sustained. Exception noted. "Have you a name?" "Yes." "What is it?" Same objections. After argument, question allowed. Exception. "My name is Mrs. Mary Smith." Request to expunge the answer from the record because it is not shown that the witness is married, nor that her husband's name is Mary Smith. An swer stricken out. "Are you married?" Objected to as secondary evidence, on the ground that it has not been shown that the marriage certifi cate cannot be produced, and is immaterial, as the question of marriage is not involved. Objection sus tained. "Have you been known by any other name than Mrs. Mary Smith?" Objected to as leading. Defendant's counsel asked to be hen id on this matter, but the question was al lowed—lie seemed tnueh elated. The witness theu answers, "Yes, Mary Jones." Defendant's counsel moved to strike out the last part of the answer on the ground that it was not re sponsive. Motion granted. "When did you assume the name of Mrs. Mary Smith V Objected to by defendant's counsel on the pound that the answer may tend to humiliate the witness. . Question allowed. "In eigbten hundred and umph, when I was mar ried." By the court —"One moment, you may say, if that was the ease, that it w ras when } rou went to live with Mr. Smith." The witness: Yes, that was it." "How old are \'ou?" Objected to on the ground that it is not shown that she is old at all. Objection sustained. "Are you more than 21 years of age?" "Yes." "Do you consider that your 21st year began at your 21st birthday or ended on it. Counsel objected to this as immaterial and incom petent. The remainder of the day was consumed in a bitter ■wrangle between counsel as to this question. OBSERVATIONS LOOKS as if a lot of Taeomans will be shut out from voting next month because they are not regis tered.

Osgar dropped in looking for Adolf, but his old side partner had escaped down the laundry chute just as Osgar came in. Osgar treated the office with some of his keen wit that cuts like a meat axe—especially whne hacking away at dear little Adolf. Osgar admits that he mortally loves Adolf, and this affection is mutually resented. Osgar has few faults, it seems, beyond a mer curial temperament that is con tinually beating out its brains against the cold stone wall of Adolf's inflexible density. There fore no one can feel very sorry for Osgar if he breaks his blamed neck In the attempt. You can fol low his frenzied antics daily in the Comic Page. HOSE LOSE "Pop!" "Yes, my son."

I The Times Daily Short Story THK GKKATEST SCULPTOR By H. H. Hudson. For obvious reasons it will be best not to reveal my name, I will furthermore state that the authorities would disturb the quiet of my declining years if they knew what I know. The game I played is worth the telln ing. For 30 years I served as a funeral director In one of our largest cities. I became skilled In the art of embalming, but this was not enough. I made a pro found study of chemistry and was at last rewarded. I discovered a compound which, Injected after death, left the body intact, its substance being slowly replaced molesule for molecule by a min eral formation. I had discover ed the art of rendering a dead body permanent by patrification. The mummies of ancient Egypt were not to be compared with my product. For my purpose the sculptor was eliminated. I could produoe the real, with every fea ture retained as at death. As I say, I had followed the business of undertaking for 30 years. I had also kept bookß, and knew where my subjects lay, I found solace in the the thought that I was preserving the disting uished dead. I knew that my time would come and that there would be a better way than work ing over a block of marble. My work would surpass that of JMihliiis. People had »lways long ed to see their friends again. I would give them the opportunity. I went about my work rapidly •—even furiously. The years passed quicker than I knew. While I was an undertaker I was a sculptor in a larger sense. There was pleasure in the careful prep aration of each subject for the tomb, the bodies being placed in natural, graceful and artistic posi tions. My work would be epoch making. The time finally came for me to assume my new role. I closed out my business and left town. After spending some time abroad, I disguised myself and returned, opening up a. marble cutter's shop near the entrance of the old cemetery where many of my subjects had been quietly sleeping for years. It was not difficult to start my business, for I had preserved my records and knew where to so licit patrons. I enlisted the ser vice of a couple of trusted cron ies. Then, going among the de scendants of ttte old and disting uished families, I sought out photographs, telling my custom ers that for a reasonable consid eration I would furnish busts of life-sized figures of their ances tors. It seemed to thorn marvelous that a man could produce a statue from a photograph, but my work began to convince the most skep tical. The mounting and polish ing was all done secretly, and no one was permitted to enter the shop. I had orders from other cities, but of course had to con fine myself to the subjects I had handled. As time went on the various cemeteries began to show the re sult of my handiwork, and there were few tombs which were not adorned with a life-sized figure or bust. I terminated my labors by entering into a larger contract. Several public spirited men had taken a great Interest in my work and a movement was soon on foot to place life-sized statues of distinguished city fathers and benefactors on pedestals about the public buildings. I took the con- ALMOST A MIRACLE. 1 One of the most startling changes ever seen in any man, ac cording to W. B. Ilolsclaw, Clar endon, Tex., was effected years ago in his brother. "He had such a dreadful cough," he writes, "that all our family thought he was going into consumption, but he began to use Dr. King's' New Discovery, and was completely cured by ten bottles. Now he is sound and well and weighs 218 pounds. For many years our fam ily has used this wonderful rem edy for Coughs and Colds with excellent results." It's quick, safe, reliable and guaranteed.

For once the critics had nothing to say. The work was perfect. They did not know that they were gazing upon the origi nals. Henceforth I was besieged with orders, but could no longer keep pace with the demand made upon me. My health was border- Ing upon a breakdown. The fear of discovery nearly drove me mad, while the faces of the dead haunt ed me day and night. I closed up shop, destroyed all evidence of my operations, and became lost to the world. • • • One night a watchman's attention was called to the queer actions of a bent figure as it feebly tottered among the tombs.
