was of jniddle age, well dressed, and at first
sight appeared to bo a gentleman ; but tho
llusion was dispelled when approaching
business. Ho was hnrd and unfecling.uiid
naturally a villain. Success in speculation
had saved him from being a thiet or high
wayman. I heard of him as a heavy dealer
in the up-river lands. Ho asked mo if I was
willing to underlako a job which would call
me tn Sliireton. I told him I was open to
anything legitimate which would pay."
"Mr. Lurlington," said he, tapping me
with coarse familiarity upon tho arm,
"1 want to securo your services You
must not bo engaged on tho other side."
"I told him if ho would explain to mo
tlio case I might be belter able to give him
an 111 suit. He bit au enormous quid ol
tobacco from 11 black plug, nnd having got it
into shape between his jaws ho went 011 with
his story :
Tlio oaso was one of ejectment. An
elderly man, named l'liilip Acton, had died
leaving a valuable i slale. There was nearly
a thousand acres of laud, willi opportunities
for developing immense, water-iiovver, uml
ere many years that land would bo worth
more than a million dollars. At present,
upon tho estate, and claiming it as a son of
t.10 deccnsei', was a man calling himself

child, His mother was Hetty Totwood, at
oni) tnio a gill in Acton's employ, Acton,
I know, was never married. Ho brought
the boy up and educated him, and now tho
fellow thinks ho will step into his protector's
shoes. I can prove that I am tho only liv
ing relative of l'liilip Acton, llowaimy
uncle my mother's brother and, to a law
yer as smart iuyoii.thero can bo no dilllculty
iu proving my title. I can bring the wit
nesses to your hand,"
"Ho lolil me bu would give mo five hun
dred dollars if I would undertake Ids case,
and an additional thousand if I gained. That
was a big lee far moro than I had then
made in all my pleadings.
It was tempting. And yet I saw that it
was not perfectly clear not entirely hon
est. "Tho probability was that this Henry
Acton was Philip's child! and it was not Im
possible (hat l'liilip hud married lletsy Tot
wood. It struck mo that Labnu Sarfurt was
a villain, and that ho fancied h lind young
Acton so lar (n Ills povyerthat lie cmid eject
hiui from the tltlo. Rut wliat'had I 'partic
ularly to do with that f If I accepted n
client, I must serve him. I had no business
but to serve his interest.
"I finally told Mr, Sarfurt that I would
think tho matter over. I should probably
liuvo business in Sliireton during the session
of tho court anil I would call 011 hi 111 there
and examine moro fully, I could not take
Ills retainer, until I had further light.''
"Hut," said he, will you promise not lo
ttko up for the other side ?"
"I told him I would do nothing without
further cwmullatiou with lilir.
"I!c?ause," ho ndclec), "If you nro tor me !
I run mro to win. Acton can't find a law
yer that can hold a cnndlo to vou. I know
NlTmntlor whether I believed him nr nut
I did nut feel flattered."
Two weeks latter I received a letter from
Sarlurl, promising mo fivo thousand dollars
It I won.
"I'lio five thousand dollars was a strong
argument j but was not law really a gamo of

"Two weeks latter I harnessed my horse,
to tho wagon, and with my wlfo and child,
started for Sliireton. I had been married
two years, and our little babe, a girl, was a
year old, our pride, our pet and our darling.
Sliireton was distant about thirty miles. Wo
had been having rainy weather, for a week
or so, and it had now cleared off bright and
beautiful. Wo stopped nnd took dinner at
a wayside inn, four miles beyond which was
a stream which must bo forded. Tlio inn

him. My wife was anxious, but slio trusted
my judgment. A third of tho way across
tlio water was over tho hub of the wheel.
A little more and it would reach the body
ot the wagon. I began to bo alarmed. I
feared I had left tho true track. Presently
my horso stumbled and Btaggcred, having
evidently stepped on a moving stone. The
wagon swayed and tipped, and tiio flood
poured In upon us. My wife slipiied, nnd
in a moment moro wo wero in tho water, but
with one hand I grasped tho harness upon
tlio horse, and with tlio other I held my wife,
I was thus struggling when .1 wild cry from
her lips startled tho air. Our child was
"Ob, my soul I lean not tell you what I
suffered during those moments. I could not
help our darling! If I left my wife she was
lost. I clung to tho horse and clung to my
shrieking wife shrieking to Ood for mercy
for her child. The horso was struggling for
the shore. In the distance, upon tho bosom
of tho surging flood, I could sco our little
one, her whito dress gleaming in tho suu,
being born swiftly away.
"A moment moro and I saw a man piling"
from tho bank into the river. I saw thus
much, and then an intervening point of
land shut out tho scene. Tho horso was
now rapidly Hearing tho shore, and ere long
my wife and I wero upon dry land, witli tlio
horse and wagon. As soon as I was sure my
wifo was sale, I left her to care for the horse,
while I posted olfdown tho river bauk in
quest of the swimmer nnd the child.
"You may well understand that all this
time I was frantic. I was a maehino being
operated upon by a surging and agonizing
emotion. How long or far I wandered I do
not know ; but at length I met a man wet

I then asked him if ho knew me. He nod

Lurlington, of Iialdbridge, and when I told
him ho was correct, ho said that I must ex
cuse him, He was wet and must hurry home.
And with that ho turned away. I was ton
deeply moved to stop him, and when ho had
disappcaied I started to rejoin my wife with
n dawning impression that tho man might
be slightly deranged. Hut my darling was

On the following morning nftcr breakfast,
as I sat by the window iu tho bar-rooui, I
saw coming up tho street the man who had
naved my child. He was walking slowly,

I said to him :
"Mr. Sarfurt, I havo been considering all
this titno whether 1 could undertake your
case with a clear conscience whether I
should be helping the sldo ol juslico and
right in helping you. I had concluded that
I could not do so before I had seen Henry
Acton, to know him by unino. I nor know
him for a man who nobly risked bis own life
to savn tho life of my child. I'or that, in
deed, I will reward him If 1 can. I havo as
yet accepted not one of your privato disclos

you could wish to keep from tho public. I
cannot tako your case, but I tell you frankly
that if you prosecute, I will defend Hciiry
I did not mind Sarfurt's wrath. He raved
and swore, and then ho went oil' and engaged
two lawyers from Herkimer to tako his case.
I called upon Acton and told him I would
defend him if ho accepted my service as I
had accepted his. Ho took my band and
I havo made a great many pleas In my
life, but I think I never made a better one
than I made to the jury ou that oeciuion.
Iheywero not out over fivo minutes, lly
their verdict Henry Acton was tlio lawful
possessor of the estnto his father had left.
From that day I never hesitated to refuso
n caso to which I could not give my heart.
Such a stand on tho part of a lawyer becomes
known, and the public, feels it ; nnd wiiat
the public feels, juries are sure to feel.
Conetrning Henry Acton, I will only add,
N10 became my bosom friend. He always
felt that be owed bis title to bis valuable
piopcrty to me; and I.knew that I not only
owed tho lifo of my child, but that to him I
was indebted for tho home that was mine

the gift of that piece of property. He deeded
it to my wife. The husband of my oldest

CmsnsE llAuiinu Siiop.s. Tho Ohiueso,
barber shops in San Francisco aro more nu
merous than those of any other railing. On
Dupont street, between Sacramento and
Clay streets, there are not less than fifty
basement apartments devoted to tousorial
operations. At first blush the wonder aiises
why so many of tboso establishments nro
needed ; but stand on the streets iu the quar
ter and glance at tho head of eaeli passing
Chinaman and the mystery is dispelled.
Among them no toilet is considered complete
which does not involve a shaving of 11 great
er portion of the head and neck, n thorough
cleansing of tho eyes, ears and nostrils, ran.d
even a trimming and penciling-of thet eye
brows and lushes. Itnzors, probe", and lan
ces of peculiar construction, are among iho
instruments used by these skillful artists.
The process of shaving and e'teniising is ne
cessarily a long one, and when a Chinaman
emerges from one of there shops he may bo
safely counted as thoroughly clean aboyo

of cues consumes no Iitile time. Every
Chinaman of adult years regards nn occa
sional temsorinl experience as a sacred duty.

over often to preserve tlio appearance eo
much desired, and all this, in a place tn
populous as tho "quarter" in this city, re
quires tho constant service of n ntimerpus
force. All tlio barber simps of the Chinese
have n peculiar sign at the doorway indiqa
tive of tho occupation. It isji "fourTlcggeil,
