- r For hundreds of years people have poked
fun at lawyers. 1 And the lawyers seem to like
it. ; They poke fun at themselves. They laugh
with anybody that laughs at them.
And some very sharp people have said some
very witty things about Mr. Blackstone's well
known disciples, and the judicial process. For
instance Charles Maeklin in bis play, "Love a
H Mode," in 1759, makes one of his character
say: "The law is a sort of hocus-pocus aeienee
that smiles in yer face while it picks yer
pocket; and the glorious uncertainty of it is

It was Lord Brougham who defined a law
yejr as "a learned gentlentan who rescues your
estate from your enemies, and keeps it to him
self." But Lord Brougham had no monopoly
of that thought, for the same idea has been
expressed in almost every civilized land. So
that, after all, if it may be said, lawyers must
be about the same the world over! The Ger
mans have it: "Lawsuits make the parties bare,
the lawyera fat." And again: "The suit is
eaded," says the lawyer, "for neither party
has anything left." The Italian puts it: "A
lean agreement is better than a fat lawsuit."
And the Scotch: "Law's costly; take a pint
Lawyers and their clients may smile at the
Danish idea: "Virtue in'the middle, said the
"devil, when seated between two lawyers."
Lawyers love to tell this story of a woman
who asked an attorney for the requisite for
oing to law: "Why, it dependa upon a num
ber of circumstances. In the first place," he
aaid, "you must have good cause; secondly, a
good attorney; thirdly, good counsel; forthly,
good evidence;, fifthly, a good Judge; and lastly,

A READER asks the "Information Bureau'
what is meant by "tweedledum and tweedledee"
and the following reply is made: "This is an

that there is no appreciable difference between

There waa another reason why I did
not want Peter to be a preacher. Thirty
years ago, when William and I were
young, the best men mentally and spirit
ually entered the ministry. They had
great virtues and great gifts. They had
dignity and influence. They inspired
reverence. And many of them became
national figures in the church of God.
Now. we all know it is too often the
seconds who enter the ministry, ordinary
men whose sacred olF.ces do not exalt or
change their quality. They Irequently
become prominent, but they do not be- -come
great. Their eloquence is like any
other eloquence. Their hearts do not
burn, their lips have not been touched
with the holy fire. They lack some awful,
quality of the spirit which the old preach-
ers bad and which they have not. It is
not for me to judge them, bu I have
wondered if they did not lack the cour
age of that sublime thing which we call
faith. They have been tamed by some
thing which is not the Holy Ghost The

ominous maases of purplish black
