ACTING SAVES LIVES.
COUNSEL FOR MURDERERS EMPLOY THEATRICAL METHODS. How Lawyer Who Defend Criminal Strive to Make au Impression on the Sympathies of Jurymen Some Notable Cases Where .Lawyers Succeeded. For years it has been generally known Miiong lawyers that all sorts of desper ate and theatrical devices are constantly resorted to in order to save the lives of accused persons. But Mr. Wellraan wan the first prosecutor to make the charge in open court and quote an in stance to fortify his allegation. Is tho practice right or wrong? Perhaps tho most moving part of Lawyer William F. Howe's elegant sum ming up on behalf of Annie Walden was where he besought the jurymen to consider her youth, her beauty and her helplessness. When Francis L. Wellman, assistant district attorney, began his summing up for the prosecntion, ho urged the jurors not to be moved by his ad versa ry'n emotional appeals. lie called Mr. Howe au actor. He said: "If you had seen him, as 1 have, go behind a woman defendant and pinch her to make her scream and so arouse sympathy, you would not be so much in lhicnced by his theatrical display." "Whom did Mr. Howe pinch?" I asked Mr. Wellman. Ella Nelson," was his prompt reply. "You recall that she had shot her lover dead because he was packing his trunk and preparing to leave her. She was on trial for her life. Mr. Howe got her ac quitted. "When he had got to that part of his summing up where ho called upon tho jury to "look at her,' Ella was sitting be hind a table, tier face toward the jury, but resting in her hands. She had been weeping for some minutes, but now she v;:s composed. 'Look ut that facel' pleaded Mr. Howe in impassioned tones. He strode rapidly behind her. Again he cried, Look at that face!' and as ho did so he seized Ella's soft wrists in his strong hand ami wrenched her arms apart. The woman screamed with pain and ter ror That scream was enough to freeze the blood of anybody who heard it. 1 cannot help thinking that it had much to do with the verdict. 'I do not say that it is wrong for counsel to employ theatrical methods in dt fending their clients. 1 think it is partof tho duty of the prosecuting officer to exposH this sort of thing to the jury. "Frederick B. House was defending a man named Becker in the general ses sions. Becker had a clothing store in Baxter street. Ho arranged a candle so that when it burned down to a certain point at midnight it would set fire to a lot of bagging soaked wilh kerosene, and so burn ihe storo and earn Becker a big amount of insurance. Firemen quenched thn flames and so saved the lives of seventy-six men, women and children who were sleeping in the tene ine'its ;;i o( the storo. When .Mr. llous mmnied up he wa.i in a quandary. Becker couldn't understand one word in English, there fore how cul. 1 tho poor devil weep at the proper moment? That littlo diffi culty w.is solved all right. Becker rested his face in hi. hands and peeped through his interlaced fingers at his eloquent de fender Think, gentleman,' said Mr. House, if you send this wretched man to prison you will punish thosu innocent little ones AX that instant Mr. House drojv pet! his handkerchief Wow! eame a shriek from Becker, it began like the scream of a catamount. It died away i:i a I -n;; drawn wail and choking soi-s 1 ; K.m 's tears were like a shower ! vs. Becker's and the little Beckers tea:, were a cloudburst. Human naiure couldn't stand it. .In ror No. I was a nice o! I fellow, retired from busi ness ami living at home surrounded by Mns and daughter i:nd chubby grand children, lb' broke down at the second drop of 'Fred House's handkerchief. At rue third dioji ,f the cambric the juror's W;ti- irusli 'd out beyond the railing. Atc-wermg smfV.es and gasps came from 1 wo oi her juror ;. It seems hard to believe, but it is a matter of record that in the face of the clear evidence against Becker the jurj stood three for acquittal and nine for conviction The tears and howls and the little Beckers saved the guilty man. And in proof of his givilt let me add that iVek.er was released under $0,500 bail, cut he ran away, although the case was -eon brought up for retrial. often the question of makeup tests the couu-el stage manager's ability and ingennitv There was Alphouso Steph aui. the young man who deliberately murdered Lawyer Clinton G.

We both are in Christ's keeping. And therefore cannot part. You there I here though severed. We still at heart are one; I only just in eunshino. The i-hadows scarcely gone. What if the clouds surround you. You can the brightness see, Tis only just a little way That leads from you to me. I was eo very weary. Surely you could not mourn. That I a little sooner .Should lay my burden down. Then weep not, weep not, darling; God wipes away all tears, Tis only "yet a little while," Though you may call it years. Exchange. l-:iudin3 ihe Officers. Here is an amusing description of one 01 uaizacs perioas or impecuniosny. i Mery, the poet, a reat friend of Hal- ' zacs, was an inveterate gambler and rarely left the card table before day- break. His way lav pat the Cafe de Paris and for four consecutive mornings he had met Balzac strolling leisurely up and down dressed in a. pantalon a pieds (troupers not terminating below me aiiKiP, out; vmi ieei in mem ime stockings) and frock eoat with velvet facings. The second morning Meryfelt surprised at the coincidence, the third he wa-i puzzled, the fourth he could hold out no longer, and asked Balzac the reason of the.se nocturnal perambula tions roundabout the same spot. Balzac put his hand in his pocket and produced an almanac showing that the sun did not rise before S:40. "I am being tracked by the officers of the tribunal de commerce and obliged to hide mjrself during the day, but 'it this hour I am free and can take a walk, for as long as the sun is not up they cannot arrest me." lie Knew the Woman. A few years ago the writer was on a train on an Indiana railroad, and in J front of him sat a woman in deep mourn ing. When the conductor came through she told him that she had no money nor ticket, that her child was lying at tho point of death at Elkhart, and that she was trying to gvt to it. She begged and entreated the conductor to carry her to that point, where, she said, she had friends who would pay him well for his trouble. 'You must pay your fare or get off the train," said the conductor bluntly. "You certainly will not be so inhuman as to kep me from reaching my dying child?"' said the woman as the tears came to her eyes. The conductor reached for the bell cord as the engine whistled for a small station. The passengers began to grow indignant, and there was talk of a col lection to pay the woman's fare, when the conductor, taking the woman by the arm, said in a loud voice: "This woman is a spotter. Seven years ago she caused the? discharge of several conductors on the Lake Shore road, to whom she told this story and who carried her free. I regret to say that I was one of the con ductors, and 1 do not propose to be caught again." Without a word the woman got up ami leit tho train when it stopped, and the indignation of the passengers melted away as she disappeared. Indianapolis News. The ISaby Was New. At tho time when the coral honey suckle was scarlet and bright around the porch Dora made the acquaintance of he r new little sister. "What shall we call her?" asked mamma. "Daisy, because she is sweet," said Rob quick ly. "No," said Dora slowly; "we'd bet ter call her honeysuckle, 'cause she's so red!" The baby was called Daisy until a name was decided upon. Shortly after a lady called. "Our baby's name is Gertrude," said Rob. "Indeed! Didn't y ou use to call her Daisy?" "Use to!" exclaimed Dora. "There isn't any 'use to' about our baby. She's too new."
