LAWYER MADE AN APOLOGY.
Revised the Opinion as to the Intellect
ct the Court.
Some yea:s ago t:.ere was an old
judge on the rch in Berks county,
Pa., whose uecisigiiB, h- consequence
of numerous reversals did not always
command universal respect. One day,
in a case in whicn ne was sitting, one
of the lawyer? lost patiei.ce at his in
ability to see t..n.0s in a certain light,
and in the heat of tue moment re
marked that the intellect of the court
was so dark a dash or lightning could
not penetrate it. For this contempt
the judge showed a disposition to be
very severv with the offender, and it
was only after much persuasion by
friends of the latter that he yielded
and decided to accept a public apol
ogy. The following day the lawyer,
accordingly, appeared before his honor
and made amends by saying. "I re
gret very much that 1 said the intel
lect of the court was so dark lightning
could not penetrate it. I guess it
could. It is a very penetrating thing."
HAD HAD LONGER PRACTICE.
Small Boy's Distinction Between Ap
petite and Patriotism.
Gen. 0 O. Howard occasionally ad
dresses juvenile patriotic clubs. An
organization of this type entertained
veteran at a sociable and dinner.
A little chap near the general dis
played a good appetite. "You eat
well, my son," said the old soldier.
"Yes, sir." "Now, if you love your
flag as well as your dinner, you'll
make a good patriot," Gen. Howard's
eyes beamed on the boy. "Yts. sir
hut I've been practicing eating twelve
years and I ain't owned a gun but six
months," was the laconic reply.New
Most Expensive Tree in World.
Probably the most expensive tree
in the world is in the city of London,
on the corner of Cheapside and Wood
6treet, about midvay between the
Bank of England and St. Paul's. It
is an enormous oak and is said to be
100 years old. It is protected by a
clause in the deed of the property
which forbids destruction of tree or
branches. Architects were compelled
to plan a rather peculiar building to
avoid the branches. There it stands
in the corner of one of the busiest
streets in London, occupying ground
of enormous valueand positively
the only tree in the city of London
outside of the parks.
Development of the Electron.
Dr. Kaufmann of Germany, in a re
cent lecture, traced the history of the
development of the electron. The
roots of the idea go back about twen
ty-five years. The growth of the stem
has taken place within the last ten
years, and now we have a flourishing
plant and a large literature on the
subject. Broadly speaking, the latest
theory accounts for inertia, suggests
a cause for gravitation, explains the
leading phenomena of the spectra of
hot gases and co-ordinates hypothet
ically a host of miner phenomena that
seem at first sight to have no discern
ible mutual relationship, says Electri
How Snakes Decoy Birds.
That the rattlesnake uses his tail
to decoy birds has been observed a
number of times by a correspondent
of the Scientific American, who says:
"The snake hides himself in the tall
grass and imitates the buzzing of a
bee. The insectivorous birds, such as
the phoebe and kirgbird, are attract
ed by the sound, and become an easy
prey for his snakeship. 1 have seen
rattlesnakes concealed in the dense
foliage of trees twenty feet from the
ground practicing the same deception
on the birds and getting the bird
Queen Victoria Paid a Debt.
King Edward's apporr tri nt of Sir
Evelyn Wood to be a field marshal
has broucht out the interesting fact
that the family of the king was once
deeply indebted to the grandfather of
Gen. Wood, Matthew Wood, a London
merchant. It was through the gen
erosity of the old merchant that the
eul:e of Kent v. as able to come to
England from Germany so that the
future Queen Victoria could be born
on British soil. The first baronetcy
bestowed by Queen Victoria up her
accession was on Mattnew Wood.
Microbes Hard to Kill.
That the microbes which cause dis
ease cannot be killed by firing them
our of a gun has been proved in off!
c.a. government experiments. Mi
crobes of malignant postule, of ab

smeared upon the face of the gun

into sterile gelatin rid agar-agar. In
each case the microbes developed,

One of the janitors of a public

SHE DID NOT DRINK.
And Consequently Did Not Need First
American pushfulness is an unlim
ited quantity. The women are as ir
repressible in society us the_jnen in
commerce. A ?rtain visitor to the
Riviera found tnis out recently. He
was occupying first floor rooms at a
well-known hotel. Au of a sudden,
without any introduction or prelim
inary, a note was brought to him
signed by the wife of a well-known
American millionaire. It asked him
whetuer he would object to giving up
his rooms to her niece. He was much
amazed, but wrote back inquiring
whether the niece drank. Mrs.
wrote in reply, in surprise and indig
nation, winding up with an emphatic
statement that her niece did not
drink. Lord concluded with
the following note: "I.ord re
grets that he cannot give up his first
floor rooms to Mrs. 's niece,
for he is convinced that, as the young
lady does not drink, it is very much
easier for her to get up stairs than it
is for Lord ."London Tat

Losses by Drought in Australia.
The wheat harvest of 1902 in N-w
South Wales is only one-tenth of the
harvest of 1901, and this represents a
lo?s to the wheat growers of over 2.-
(.00,000. The losses in grain, hay and
vegetables are at least as great in the
aggregate, while the disasters of the
pastoral industry are on a yet more
tragical scale. In the flocks and herds
of the state there is a decrease ot
47,401 horses, 319,461 cattle and 15,-
CC9,632 sheep! Taken at low rates,
this represents an immediate cash loss
of something like 8,000,000.
