The Impropriety of trying law cases by

At the icccnt trial the charge was proven
maliciously false, tho caso abandoned by
the district attorney and tho jury charged
by tho Court to return a verdict of not
guilty, which they did without leaving tho

In all eases were tempered to await the Im

A Wife's Si ght to HoldPropcrt against Her
Hussaaa s Creditors.
Chief Justice Mcrcur, of the Supremo
Court, has handed down nn opinion in tho
case of Sober vs. Standart, which camo up
on a writ of error to tho judgment of tho
Common Pleas of Northumberland County.
The fncls of the caso wero briefly as fol
lows : On August 0, 1879, judgment was
entered against Isaac J. Sober In favor of
Charles Standart for $232.90. There were
several judgments nhend of Standart's, In
cluding one entered against Sober In favor
of his wife, Abigail Sober. In 1878 Bober's
farm was sold under n judgment
prior to both that of Mrs. Sober
and that of Standart. Tho farm was
bought m by the prior judgment creditors,
and was sold to .Mrs. Sober for a nominal
consideration of $2000. Tho wholo pur
chase money wns secured by a mortgage
signed by Mr. nnd Mrs. Sober. Standart
Immediately levied upon tho wheat, hay
and potatoes upon the farm, as the proper
erty ot Mr. Sober. The lattcr's wifu claim,
ed that theso products wero hers, and
pointed to the sale. Judge Hockafellar, of
tho lower court, however, held that tho
sale was void as against creditors.
Tho decision Is endorsed by tho Chief
Justice's opinion. He holds that tho true
Intent of the act nf 1848 Is to preserve to a
wife and to protect her in the uso and en
joyment of her bona fido scparato estate ;
but not to enable her to defraud the credi
tors of her husband. In the present caso
the wife had no separate estate on which a
credit could bo based. Tho purchaso wna
solely on tho personal credit of herself
and her husband, and it cannot bo sus.
tnlned. The judgment is affirmed.

wo esteemed and loved ns a brother. Dr.
Purscl hail' lived and practiced his profes
sion iu Rcnovo about five years, nnd In
that short time he could count his friends
by tho hundred. Even people who did
not employ him as a physician, respected
him as a man. He was possessed of 'every
quality which we lovo most to sco in a
friend: To n most unselfish nature was
added a consideration and thouehtfulucss
of others that Is rarely seen In human na-
turo so strongly developed. To those of
us who havo watched him develop from a'
ncwiy-flcdged physician to a thorough
practitioner thoroughly, equipped nnd
ready at any and all times to relieve fciilTer
ing humanity, thoroughly Impressed with
and devoted to the duties aud responsibil
ities of his life, retaining still the same
happy disposition and gonial manners of
his early life, ho had endeared himself to
us in so many ways that now a void is left
that never can be filled ; but he has left in
our hearts a deep nnd lasting love, and al
though helms passed beyond tho rrnch ot
our love and devotion he will still llvo In
pu'r'rnemorles until time Is' no more: 'Dr.
Purscl died a Christian. A visit by tho
writer to him just thu day before he died
convinced us that ho was ready and wil
ling to die if the good Lord so willed. He
was at peace with all the world, and died
