In incase tUt came before a famous
loid justice some time ago the counsel
for the prosecution In the evidence hail
to intuition a "blouse. "
The Judge asked what a blouse was ,
and It was explained that this was part
of n lady's dress. But the case came tea
a dead stop for the time , for the Judge
did not know which part , nnd nftor
Borne hesitation the barrister admitted
that hu wasn't sure. Several learned
brothers gave their opinion , some opin
ing a blouse was the upper half of n
lady's costume , while others Insisted It
must be tlio lower half. The entire
court , filled with learned celebrities
whobe heads held all the laws of Ilrit-
nln , from pitch and toss to manslaugh
ter , argued It out , but nobody wns sure.
The Judge thought It was the lower
half , but a junior barrister who had
lately been married Bald he thought
that that half was culled a skirt , but
did not feel certain. At length a lady
was called , who sot the court right.
Another odtl dilemma happened not
long ago when In the Ilobson "horso
faking" case the won ! "fetlock" arose.
A fetlock , as everybody knows , Is the
nnklo of a horse. The court asked
what It was , however , nnd the prose
cuting counsel was nonplused. Thu
witnesses were out of court save one ,
nnd he knew nothing. The Judge
thought a fetlock was a sort of hind
knee , otherwise "hock , " but one learn
ed brother was quite certain It was the
lock of hair that hangs over a horse's
forehead. The defendant's solicitor
opined It was that part of the harness
which slips over the tall , the crupper ,
nnd another legal celebrity agreed with
the Judge. Finally the court had to call
a stable groom to clear np the mystery.
In a case that was settled some years
since the recorder was brought up
short by a phrase used by the counsel
for defense , who spoke of n transaction
concerning a pound of "blacklead. "
This Is a common and useful article ,
but the counsel on being asked to ex
plain Its nature said It was u black
substance used for boot polishing. The
recorder thought It was a mineral used
In lead pencils , but another barrister
asserted It to be a "tough kind of lead
used for rooting houses. " The case was
brought to a standstill , and one lawyer ,
Unsurpassed In Jegal knowledge , de
clared that blacklead was a slang Term
for pig Iron as produced In the north
country. A fourth expounder ofxthe
law vaguely suggested It was the op
posite of white lead , and finally n do
mestic servant put the court right , and
the assembly at last learned that It was
used for blacking stoves.
Another dilemma was produced n lit
tle while ago on the western circuit by
the Introduction of the words ' 'dry
nurse" In an address to the court. This
bewildered the Judge , who asked If a
dry nurse was a nurse who dried ba
bies after they had been washed. That
solution did not occur to the learned
counsel , who , after some hesitation ,
Bald be thought it meant n nurse who
was not addicted to drinking and there
fore most suitable to look after Infants.
Nobody seemed to know what the term
really meant , though several more
guesses were made , the last of them
that a dry nurse was one who could
not a muse children.
The court was again nonplused by n
statement made that somebody con
cerned In the case supposed to suffer
from melancjiolla was really "us jolly
as n sandboy. " The Judge wanted to
know what a sandboy was In order to
$ * . * form some Idea as to the exact degree
of jollity Involved. The counsel could
not tell him , though one suggested it
was a boy who sanded the roads and
* the other thought It might be a lad
X building sand castles on the seashore.
The whole court stopped to discuss
what a sandboy was and why he was
Jolly , but they could not solve the prob
It Is hardly believable that anybody
should not know what a "snnllle" Is ,
but n London magistrate recently desir
ed to be Informed , and nobody could
tell him what a snaflle might be. A
solicitor thought It was the same thing
as the "curb , " and the clerk had an
Idea It was a kind of cold In the head
which horses caught , causing them to
Bnuflle a good deal. London Answers.

Tclegrnnh In Argentina.
A peculiar but very serious difficulty
besets the operation of telegraph lines
In the Argentine Republic. The small
spider , of the variety that spins a long
cobweb -and floats on It in the air , Is
so plentiful there that the floating
webs settle on the wires In enormous
quantities. As soon as dew falls era
a shower of rain comes up every micro
scopic thread becomes wet and estab
lishes a minute leak. The effect of
thousands and millions of such leaks
Is practically to stop the operation of
the Hues , and the government tele
graph department , especially In Buenos
Ayres , has been put to vast Inconven
ience by the cobwebs. A number of
expedients have been tried , but to no
avail. On the Important line between
Buenos Ayres and Ilosarlo the effect
of the spider webs Is to cut down the
speed of working from 300 to 400 to 30
messages an hour. The government
has Just determined , as a last resort ,
to connect the two points by an under
ground cable about ICO miles long.

"Gannon was the proprietor of the
Gilt Kdgc honkatonk In La Junta , and
It was at this place that ho had KOIUD
trouble with Hrntton. The argument
ended by Itratton backing out of thu
door ' with his hands up , Gannon having
the drop. Gannon didn't shoot then be
cause his gun wasn't loaded. He had
been cleaning It anil had forgotten to
replace the cartridges. He'd have killed
Kratton otherwise as a matter of
"That same night Itratton sent word
lo Gannon that he meditated shooting
him up some on the following day.
Gannon wasn't a man to take to thu
cliffs or the cactus having plenty of
notches on his gun barrel hlmsHf , and
hu walked around the next afternoon
like n light battery of artillery. 'IHg
Divide Jim' llratton bulged him , how
ever , by turning a corner suddenly as
Gannon paraded down the main street ,
and then It was Gannon's hands that
went up for n change. Kratton bail
two guns covering him , and Gannon
knew his gait.
" 'This , ' saltl Kratton , 'Is where I get
an even break for my coin. Now , you
like me M > much , Gannon , that I want
yon to sort of show your appreciation
of me by walkln around town linked

"It was up to Gannon to comply with
this peculiar request. 'Klg Dlvltlu Jim'
Kratton Jabbed his guns back Into hh
belt , and then ho clntHioil Gannon's
left arm and passed It through his
right. The disadvantage1 of this ar
rangement accrued to Kratton. It left
Gannon's gun arm free , while In case
of argument Kratton would have to USD
his left gun. Kut 'KIg Divide Jim'
wasn't selfish.
"The population of La Junta was
amazed to see 'KIg Divide Jim' Krat

wnys been more or k" < s sore ou eai.li
other and who had had a quarrel that
meant the death of one or both of them
on thu night before , walking arm In
arm up and down the main street of
the town. It looked like a peripatetic
love feast between the two of 'em. Kut
| they were watching each other like
cats. At the end of the si reel Itratton ,
[ still with his right arm linked to Gan
non's left , stopped suddenly and said :
" 'George , I ain't much on the blow
about any gun suddenness that I may

had to suffer his right hand to be cut

" 'Jim , ' said I , 'it's too bad you
should have lost that right hand. If

philosophically , 'if I'd ha' lost my left ,

A Dry Smoke.
If you see a man with an nnllghted
cigar between his lips , It IH not because -
' cause he Is looking for a light , but be-
1 cause he Is indulging In the pleasure of
, a "dry smoke. " How there can be any
I enjoyment In this to n smoker is not
readily apparent , but the fact remains
that there Is much satisfaction Hi the
, habit , and , besides , there are no bane
ful effects.
For Inveterate smokers the dry smoke
Is n good habit to cultivate. It enables
many slaves of the weed to decrease
' the number of cigars actually smoked
In a day without causing much Incon-
j venience. Of course an Inveterate
Hinoker would find no pleasure In the

necessary , and after awhile he will enJoy -
Joy his dry smoke almost us much as
