' oasCiaiosn Wt "Tbrre to aa much learaln hra 1b tbe legal profeesion at ever, bat It It not on exhibition' said a Philadelphia lawyer, -in tne nrst place, tbe courts will not countenance Its undue display. In oU times aa advocate was allowed great latitude. Formerly, In n case of damngre caused by a neglected aide walk, the attorney would be allowed to expound not only tbe laws relating to damages for neglect, but be might array off Into tbe realms of medical Jn- nspraoetue at great length, and even perorate with an allusion to the Magna Chart a, tbe constitution and the Amer ican eagle. At present a lawyer must confine himself to tbe real merits of bis case. Tbe machinery of onr courts has grown too costly to permit sncb waste of time. It follows that there is less oratorical skill displayed than in former days, especially at tho period when some of our leading lawyers made a specialty of criminal defense. Now fiw lawyer, of eminence, either in Philadelpliia or the cast generally, undertake the de fense in a criminal case. "Today tbe practice of law, like other professions. Is becoming more and more specialised. A law office la simply a business office, as you may discover by visiting some of the handsome new office buildings down town. I know of one office where there are several part ners, that would remind you of a bank ing office, and where a bookkeeper and cashier Is employed to pay off clerks. typewiUcia and other employees. You will, bowcver.still find veteran members of the bar pursuing old time methods in a cozy, quiet office, sitting at a liaise cov ered table amid a wilderness of well thumbed books. They cany a dark green bag filled with briefa when they go to court, precisely as all lawyers did SO years ago, and as London barristers still do. "As to young lawyers, however tal ented they may bo, if without social or political prestige, their struggle to ad ranee In tbe profession Is sure to bo a bard one. Practice now Is often Inher ited or transmitted in some other way. I could point out to you in Philadelphia law firms that have been confined to the members of one family or its collateral branches since the Revolution. "I may say that there is an evident impetus to change many useless old le gal methods. Tbe remark of Lord Cole ridge, when in this country, that there were many volumes of English k-ptl de cisions which it would do no harm to destroy, would answer as the main spring of this impetus. Legislation is certainly advancing in this that mere ly experimental general laws are passrd with greater difficulty than formerly." Another lawyer, oldi-r than the other. said: "Progress in tho legal iirofvssionT Progress Is hardly a term to apply to law, for It Is fnnndod on precedents, sometimes the older tbe better. For this reason Jurisprudence is the least pm- gtisalve of the sew-neea. Still there hare been, no doulit, improvements in moth ods of practice, though I am not lunch of a code lawyer. I have bad to study bard all my life. Tho younger lawyers appear to. do little or that. Tbey seem to believe, with Aaron Burr, that 'law is whatever Is boldly advanced and plausibly maintained.' " Philadelphia Kecord. Tbe fashionable impetus which it expected the patronage of the Princess of Wales would give to tho occupation of trained nursing in England baa hard ly been realised. It Will undoubtedly receive a stimulant in tho plan, of which word now comes from there, to have nursing leetnrea at fashionable booses to instruct tbe aristocratic pupils tn the rudiments at least of caring for tbe sick. These "afternoons" are to be illustrated with gennino hospital Implements, Including a patient, and, with tea and biscuits banded round, will take on as well an agreeable social tone. ' A story beard recently accentuate the need of all this. It was related of an English peeress, who, wishing to master tbe duties of a trained nurse. procured admission to a hospital for such Instruction. nbe proved an utterly hopeless pupil, and at length it was deemed advisable to ask ber to resign, Iler martial tread through tbo wards and general "heaviness" in all that she did actually made ber presence a detriment, which would seem to indicate that even aristocratic nnrses are bom, not made. New York Times. . Wasaea ee the ery. ' A recent number of tbe New Zealand Mirror relates that at tbe petty courts several persons were summoned to show why they should not have their certificates allowing them tbe control of domestic animals canceled. These cases, which have not been heard from for many years, have this year cropped up in considerable numbers, much to the I egret of tbe better class ox people. Tbe yussissliai of these certificates has very property been refused to those who have shown the old aptness for cruelty, now swpposed to have bcea eradicated by loast culture of tne yooas; ta better a ti assets. Tho Jury was Impaneled la the usual manner in such cases, half of maw aad half of women, all of were known to be clear of any charge of tntfwAttMaafeaals. It tsaa MRS. BENT9 TRAVELS. laMel Tbe woman traveler Is becoming ev ery year less of a novelty. Recently Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Bent, a pair of Ustfatigablo English "globe trotter," started for south Arabia to continue tbe expirations tbey have been making In various countries. Tbey began their work in 1884 by digging along tbe shores of Greece- The next year they went through tbe 23 Cycladea Isle and carried a good Many objects back to the British musenu. During her first visit to Greece Mrs. Bent was unac quainted with the language, and tbe people prononnced her nlco, very nice, but dumb. Three years later abe re visited tbem, and, much to their sur prise, coo vet sed flnently. In 1880 they vihited Thasos, an Egyptian island, and tbe next year sailed along the coast of Lycia. In 1889, wishing to go still farther afield, tbey started for Bahrein, on tbe Persian gulf, thence going across Persia and over the Can casus, attended by a special escort from tbe shah. On all these expeditions Mrs. Bent "ronghed it" like tbo rest. A tent was her only shelter, and she slept in a ham mock. Tbe scarcity of water was the greatest privation, for in somo placet the supply hsd to be so caiefully hus banded that baths were an impossible luxury, and even tea was sometimes impractical le. The most dangerous expedition made by Mr. and Mrs. Bent was to Masbona- land. They started in January. 1891, reached tho ruins of Zimbabwe in June and retraced their steps throngh a path less country via Beira, reaching Eng land in January, 193. They immedi ately returned to Abyssinia, where the natives became so fond of them that they would not allow them to leave. This was an uncomfortable sort of pop ularity, and after the travelers had been twice defeated in attempts to get away the situation became decidedly unpleasant. Hearing that troops were ponring in and that there was a prospect cf seri ous fighting, Mr. Bent said that they must make a strong effort to escape. Mrs. Bent is an ardent photographer and was at tho time engaged in develop ing some negatives she had made of the Abyssinian women around ber. She finished ber photographs first, and then, watching fur a favorable opportunity, the littlo party mounted mules, and as sisted by an Italian officer and 400 sol diets who bad been sent to rescue them managed to escape from their devoted Abrsnimnn friends. Mrs. Bent brought away the negatives she hod persisted iu finishing, and these show the costume of an Abyssinian woman to consist of two garments a pair of trousers fitting tightly around tbo ankles, and a long, loose overdress lavishly worked round the neck and down the tapering sleeves, which are so tiny at the ends that ono can bardlv imngino how a woman's band could get through the cuffs. New York Son. Achillea mm tbe Tortataa. There is one paradox which upon its face appears to be very easy of sola tton, but which, after careful studv, doe not pan out so well. Tbe story was first told npoa a gentleman named Achilles, who was rather prominent in early political times, and who had a reputation ns an all round athletic Be could run, and run fast at that. Une day ho started to catch a tortoise, which was as slow in thoso days as bo is todav, Achilles was somo distance lchind the tortoise and set out to capture it. Achil les went twice as fast as the slow old tortoise and gained constantly, but he never caught it. Sto matter what prog resa Achilles made, tho tortoise went ahead just half as far. By this time the distance between tbe two, had they lived to this day, would have be-n infinites! mal, but yet if Achilles and the tortoise ran with the proper mathematical pre cision there would still be an interval between tho two. -St. Louis Globe- Democrat.
