A study of the small republics of the world presents many items of remarkable interest. Some of them are so diminutive as to seem scarcely able*to sustain any kind of seperate government, and yet they are really forging ahead on entirely independent lines. Sav olara. the smallest on record, an island northeast of Sardinia, num bers it is said, only 55 inhabitants, has a bona tide constitution, elects a president and strangest of all, grants equal suffrage to women. Goust, situated on one of the Pyr enees Mountains, is much smaller than Savolara, measuring only a little over a mile square, but it has a population of almost 130. It has maintained a seperate government since the middle of the seventeenth century, at the head of which is a council of 12 who remain in power for seven years. One of the Heb rides Islands is another miniature republic containing 550 members, ruled by a president. Besides San Marino, in Italy, and Andorra, in Spain, two republics generally well known, one other deserving special mention is Mausuet. between Bel gium and Aix-la Cliapelle, which has an area of about four square miles and has been independent since 1838. It is described as be ing in a flourishing condition finan cially, politically and in every way. —Editor’s Notebook. Chautauqua, June. THE JUDGE WAS DEEPLY MOVED. "There was a good joke played on Judge Dundy of the United States Court at Omaha several years ago. It makes me laugh every time I see the Judge s name in print,” said Thomas A. Weaver last night. "Judge Dundy is quite tender-hearted and dreads to send a married man to jail. Well, there was a fellow on trial for passing counterfeit money. He was a single man and the case against him was quite strong. Judge Baldwin was defending him and seeing that the case was hopeless Baldwin decided to take advantage of Judge Dundy’s weakness. He hunted up an old lady who had tive children, ranging from eight years to eight months old. and had her impersonate the supposed wife and children of the prisoner. All through the trial they sat. often weeping; the man was found guilty. Three days later, when the pris oner was brought up to be senten ced. the woman and children were brought in and Judge Baldwin, who is very dramatic, made h plea fortlie man and his family of little ones, who would sutl er if the father was sent to prison. Baldwin wept, the court wept, the prisoner pre tended to weep as did the woman and children. When the Court had wiped away the tears he talked severely to the man and then gave him one day in jail and $lO tine. Later on, when he learned how he had been deceived, he became so angry that it was weeks before he would speak to Judge Baldwin. When the joke got out every one twitted the Court. After that the sight of a handkerchief applied to the eyes in Judge Dundy's court was liable to get the prisoner ten years.”—Ex. m « 1 • at tbe won- LrOlu.
