Detective "Mickey" Moran, of Cr

practical jokers in thncounly. Last
weok James Dunn, the Democratic
statesman of Lnokawntiiia township,
who possesses all the agility and pbyil
cal perfections of Grovnr Cleveland,
was a juror, und on him the defec
tive played one of his practical joke.
Dunu was made to appear v.rry ridicu lous

In the presence of a court room full of
people und bo deturmlued to Iiuva re
venge. Saturday morning ho stepptd up to
the motion table while Judges Arch

the bench and called attention to tbi
festive "Mlokiy'l prank in a fervid,
' Your lionon.' lie said, "1, n juror,
have beeu insulted in the presence of
that lovely lady oil the ceiling with the
scales in her hand nnd I demand jus
tice uud protection for myself and her "
There) was no denying such a gallant
appeal and the court directed Mr.
Dunn to prepare an ullllnvit letting
forth the facts lu tho esse, on the filing
of which thev would grant a rule to
show cause why Morau should not be
arraigned for contempt at court.
After that Dunu sal down and
calmly discussed the situation with
himself. He coticluled that he would
forgive the insult to himself, but could
not overlook the (act that the goddess
of justice had alio been insulted, from
the fact thut the insult had beeu of
fered to him in bet' presence
Then lie glanced upward ut "tbe
lovely lady with the scales'' and he
fancied she smiled u forgiving smile.
That settled the matter. Dunn hunted
up Judge Archbaid and told him bo
would not proceed against Morau, as
ho was satisfied that it was all a joke.

at the Academy this evening by Alex
ander Salvini. perhaps the best expo
nent of tbo great author's idea. Sal
vini, in addition to being an almost
perfect actor, is an almost perfect
swordsman. He Illustrates to a degree
the bediity and the race of the only
fair wear.- n in existence where a little
man is not handicapped by a big one.
The swordsmanship is, : however, only
a concomitant to the story, even if an
important one. Little is there left in
Dumas' great story that is essential,
that Is not followed bv the dramatizsr,
and nothing is left undone that the
dramitlait would wish to luvo done.
