The Daily Short Story:
Several y.ors ago I attended the su
perior court for the county of - . A
tae of murder was tried. Tbe evidence
disclosed that tbe deceased and the
prisoner had been drinking together
and had quarreled; that the prisoner
had struck the .'deceased; tbat he had
woro he would be tbe death of him;
that through the intercession of the
bystanders a petched up reconcllatloa
had taken place, willingly on the part
f the deceased, doggedly by accused;
tbat the deceased had started to go
borne by his usual route mid that tbe
prisoner had immediately followed him,
although hla home was In a contrary
direction; that Bounds of strife were
heard shortly after; that the deceased
had never again been heard of; that,
suspicion having fallen upou tbe pris
oner, his steps upon the uigbt of the
difficulty had been traced; that marks
of a struggle had been found upon the
earth and drops of coagulated blood,
and that tbe accused, having been ask
ed to account for the deceased, deuled
that he had ever seen him after the
moment that he left on the night of the
Tbe defense was conducted by the
prisoner In person, mid it was evident
to ine that, although tbe calm and col
lected manner, in which it was made
had its Impression upon the Judge, It
had none upon the Jurors or bystanders.
They had made up their minds as to
his guilt and were determined that his
life should be taken. The solicitor
general closed the case. lie dwelt with
burning and bitter eloquence upou the
crime of murder. He spoke of the cool
and deliberate manner of tbe prisoner
and reproached him as one who could
gloat like a cannibal over tbe mangled
remains of his victim.
He dwelt with great minuteness,
clearness and ingenuity upon the train
of circumstances "which could not lie,
and be threw a web of guilt around tho
prisoner that no one doubted would In
volve him in destruction, but still the
prisoner quailed not. The Judge sum
med up the case to the Jury, narrating
tbe circumstances and unfolding tbe
law. He admitted tbat tbe facts were
very strong against the accused, but
that one material link was wanting. It
had not been proved tbat ( rimes was
dead, lie concluded by admonishing
them that they should not tonviet un
less they had sufficient evidence of that
,But this caution was thrown away
upon tbe excited feellnsrs of tbe Jury,
who withort retiring made up their
verdict of guilty, and the foreman was
In the act of signing it when the pris
oner again rose.
"I ask permission of the court," said
he, "to call a witness who, I think, will
relieve me of this diabolical charge, who
will prove that my bands are not red
with my brother's blood, who will show
the impropriety and danger of a con
viction upon circumstantial evidence
In short, who will satisfactorily con
vince the malignant and dcmonlike
heart of the solicitor general that I am
Innocent of this crime."
"Have you any objection, Mr. Solic
itor General?" asked the Judge.
"None," responded the state's at
torney, with a bitter sneer, "but if he
wishes to convince me and to save his
neck from the gallows he had better
produce John Grimes."
"That Is precisely the witness I seek
to Introduce," said the prisoner. "Mr.
Sheriff, call John Grimes."
The proposition created great excite
ment. Some of the bystanders laughed
aloud. Others heaped bitter execra
tions upon the prisoner. The solh-ltor
general sneerlngly asked him If he
would have him -nlled again, and -tbe
Judge was evidently fast changing his
favorable opinion of the prisoner, who.
he thought, was trifling witb the court.
I turned to the culpri and was amazed
at the terrible change that had taken
place In his countenance. Its placidity
nnd composure were gone. It was
covered with livid spots, and Immense
drops of perspiration were rolling rap
Idly from his brow.
"Call again, lu God's name!" shouted
he at the top of his voice.
The sheriff repeated tbe call. The
storm that had been slumbering for a
short time now burst forth with tenfold
violence. Tho rain leat furiously upon
the shingled roof, the wind howled and
moaned like a condemned culprit, and
several of the large pine trees that sur
rounded the building fell with a tre
mendous crasb, startling the already
excited Inhabitants of the courtroom.
It was an awful scene without. It was
a still more awful one within. The un
earthly appearance of the prisoner, the
sudden and awful change that had
taken place lu him, his solemn adjura
tion and bis earnest manner, all had
deeply .affected the bystanders, and
many looked as if they really expected
to see tbe murdered man arise at the
Invocation. All were gratified save the
Implacable solicitor general, who sat
scowling at the accused with a look of
triumph and fiendish exultation on his
countenance. The judge rallied him
self and motioned to the foreman of
the jury to proceed, when suddenly an
Individual arose, no one knew from
where, and, striding to the witness
stand aud throwing off a huge cloak
which enveloped his form, disclosed to
tbe horror stricken and amazed crowd
the features of John Grimes.
Long afterward I learned that there
had beeu a bet between the prisoner
and his supposed victim bearing ou tbe
weight of circumstantial evidence.

. AN ENGLISH JAIL CHAPEL,
A Tiew of the Prisoners' at tbe Sunday
After breakfast nothing much happens
until the chapel hour. Now those pris
oners who have "gone sick" are visited
by tbe surgeon or his assistant, and if
the cases are urgent are sent across to the
infirmary at once. There is no regular
cell inspection; the governor or his
deputy makes no round ; there is no
"taking of reports," no adjudication of
pains and penalties for misconduct. All
this will stand over until Monday ; even
tbosa awaiting punishment, unless it ia
for outrageous acts of violence or de
fiance, turn out to go with their fellows
to chapeL About 9 :30 the chapel bell
rings for tbe first service, that of the
Roman Catholics, who in large prisons
are usually "located" or lodged iu one
part of tbe prison, near their own chapeL
The bell for the Church of England serv
ice follows at about 10 a. m.
Both on marching to chapoland when
seated within it the various classes aud
categories of prisoners are kept strictly
separate from each other. Males and fe
males approach the chapel by different
roads, enter by different doors and oc
cupy different divisions, pews or places
apart. Among tho males, too, the con
victed are kept from the unconvicted
and the debtors from both. The women
are generally seated first, behind a
screen or within a curtained off, railed
in inclosore. They are, of course, visi
ble to the chaplain, but to uo one else
but their own officers. Except for their
treble voices heard in responses and
hymns, their presence at the service
would be unknown. low and again,

chapel, it affords a shrewd suspicion
tbat friends are trying to uso some code
made up cntside before imprisonment.
One other class is unhappily to be
found at times in the jail chapel a
very distinct class, but seldom containing
more than one representative. This is
sometimes a "condemned man in pris

has been passed, and who, by the usual
custom, is allowed "three clear Sun
days" before the awful sentence is ac
complished. A condemned convict, al

sociated day and night with two war

Not the Place For tbe Soup.
A famous French prima donna when
acting delights in a big basin of soup,
smoking hot and well flavored with
grated cheese. Ou one occasion she was
engaged for a few uights at Marseilles,
and her first thought on arriving there
was to inquire where she conld order her
favorite dish. She was recommended to
patronize a bumble restaurant just by
the theater, and going there gave her
order in person.
At 9 o'clock, as arranged, mine host
called his serving maid, and placing a
gigantic tureen in her hands told her to
take it to Mme. C on the 6tago. He
added that. orders had beeu given to let
her pass with her bowl, and ou the
girl's assurance tbat she would recognize
tbe cantatrico sent her off with the soup.
Everybody gave way before the servant
carrying the sacred meal of the star.
when suddenly between the wings she
caught sight of the prima donna, who
was singing the finale of tbe first act of
Ravenswood and his betrothed were
just about to begin tbe passionate sceno
which brings down the curtain when the
maid entered and placed the tureeu on
the mossy bank iu front of the fountain.
Then lifting up the cover and plunging
in a spoon she exclaimed to the stupe
faction of actors and audience alike:

To Name Springfield's Four Hundred.
It has been seven years since a Blue
Book was printed, and in that time there
have been many social changes. Some
have dropped out of tbe charmed circle,
some of the bnds have developed into
matrons, while others are still serving
aa bridesmaids. And some of the ple
beians have acquired property or gained
culture and are kuocking for admission
at society's gate. AH that is needed is
official recognition. We need a Bine
Book, the stars to indicate the grade of
patricians. It will be well for the com
piler to remain unidentified until the
book has been published, and then, as
in the previous case, to promptly leave
town to go far away and stay away.
Tbe Price & Lee company, which has
been compiling dry and accurate direc
tories of Springfield, has the temerity
to announce that it is prepared to classi
fy Springfield society. The preliminary
circulars are out. Now is the time to
get iuto line if you want a three star
grade in the firmament of tbe Four

DOG AND STUFFED TIGER.
A Little Incident From Mew Tork City's
Varied Street life.
"In a Broadway show window," eaid
a stroller, "there is a particularly big
and handsome tiger, stuffed, that I have
often looked at in passing. I saw in
front of this store the other day a man
who had with him a tremendously big,
shaggy dog. The man looked at the
tiger, aud stopped and tried to draw the
dog's attention to it. But the dog didn't
look tbat way, and, in fact, he didn't
stop. He slowed down, just as one man
might have done for another who had
stopped for a momeut to look in a win
dow or to speak to a friend, and when
he had moved ahead a few steps in tbat
way, not finding himself overtaken, be
did just as a man might have done again.
He swung round with the same meas
ured tread and came bock to the win
dow. Then the master, with a faint
smile, again invited the big dog to look
at the tiger, but instead of doing that
the big dog looked up into bis master's
face and wagged his tail, and the mas
ter looked down and smiled at his dog ;
then the mau started on down Broad
way, with the big dog wagging bis tail,
walking along beside him.
"But while the big dog had shown no
desire to look at the tiger, had, in fact,
shown rather au aversion to looking at
it, it did not appear that this aversion
came iu any degree whatever from fear.
Tbe perfect self possession aud the deep
and unbroken good humor of tho dog
were unmistakable; apparently he sim
ply didn't care for tigers aud didn't
want to look at this one, but it did seem
that if it bad beeu possible for the tiger
to come to life aud step down from the
window and around and out through the
door on to the sidewalk theu the big dog
would not have walked away; that there
would theu have been there on the side
walk tbe loftiest scrap that Broadway
ever saw, with the chances well, the
chances were in fav of the dog. ' ' New
"All manner of articles in place of
wood Lave beeu used in the rnannfac
tmre of pianos," says one of the great
est English piano makers. "Perhaps the
most successful of these is paper, of
which many pianos of exquibite toue
and appearance have been made. Tbe
Duke of Devonshire has one of the finest
specimens of the paper piano, this being
of French make, and decorated most or
uately with pictures by French artists.
Tbe duke gave 500 guineas for this,
mainly, no doubt, on account of the or
namentation. I suppose you know that
pianos for very hot and very cold cli
mates all instruments for export, in

this direction all manner of experiments
have been tried. Among others, a sort
of cellulose, one factor in which is ac
tually common molasses, from which
sugar is made, is employed, and a com
position made from tbe chemical treat
ment of gutta percba and leather pulp
has been tried. Ivory pianos are by no
means uncommon, and the dowager
Countess of Dudley has a magnificent
carved specimen. Pianos of ivory are, I
might say, made every year in numbers.
but chiefly for Indian princes and rich
Spanish Americans. Many pianos of
solid silver have been made; indeed,
one was only recently completed by a

times been made of bronze, a species of
