"A striking case," said Mr. Choate,
"transpired In the '60's. It was a case
of a workman who claimed to have
lost the sight of his left eye In an ex

plosion and there was no doubt that
the workman's eye had been injured,
hut the physicians claimed that he
could see out of It, while he stoutly
declared that the sight was utterly

pro and con. Then, sending the work
man from the court room, he said:
" 'Get a blackboard and "write a sen

get a pair of spectacles with ordinary
clear glass for the lert eye and red
glass for the right
"This, In the course of an hour or
so, was done. Then the workman
was brought back and he was ordered
to put the queer glasses on.
"He put them on and the Judge said
to him: -
" Turn the blackboard round and
see If you can read what Is written.'
"The man read the sentence without
hesitation, whereupon the Judge said
to him sternly:
- M 'Your case Is dismissed. You are
an Impostor. You must have read that
sentence ' with your left eye, for the
red glass over the right one turned
the green writing black and made it
quite Invisible on the blackboard.'"
