THE JUD&E'S' STORY;
" I don't seo how I coulil,havo' done
more lor hiiri than I did ; but still' tho
man should not 1iave been punished
be should havo been' acquittal.."
With these words the Judgo awoke
to tho consciousness that lie had a fel-low-traveler
; and then, as if somo ex
planation .of his remark would bo in
order, he went on;
" We had a yery Interesting trial In
Austin! last week. Tom Carberry -Irish
Tom he is called was tried' for
murder. I defended htm, and never
1 struggled harder for a client in my life.
For a week before, and throughout the
trial, 1 worked ulcht and day to look
up testimony, and to present the case
to, the jury in the best possible light.
1 consulted with all tho attorneys1 not
engaged for the prosecution. We got
him otf with throe years In the peni
tentiary, but he ought not to have been
punished he should have been acquit
The fellow-passenger queried ns to
the circumstances attending the al
leged murder, and the Judge answered:
"a Ley were .very peculiar, and mat
Is tho reason why the trial waaeo very
Interesting,, A. woman up In iMontana
whenever saw Tom Carberry, thought
that he had done her a great wroug ;
and so, when she was asked, as the
phrase is, to 1 take up with a new
inau,' she named her terms:
"'Kill Torn Carberry, of Austin,
" ' But I never saw nor heard of the
man,' said the Montana aspirant.
"'Nevertheless,' said she, 'kill Tom

and not tha affair off thelr.hands." '
The itsteuer entertained doubts nt
this poiot, but, saying' nothing, the
"Saturday evening,' Just as uaua'l
with him. Tom came into.the city, and
altar getting shaved and tlxed up for
his holiday, he went around to .the sa
loons,, where .many Of the people lot
mining towns soent their leisure, to
meet his friends. It wasn't long till
ho encountered the Mouuua .felldw,

Here the listener interrupted with-
" Why did he make Intuiting remarks?
It he bad mflde a lone journey solely
