OLESEI'SKI VERSUS TAYLOR.
Josephine Olcszefski's suit against
William F. Taylor, formerly of
Prompton, for alleged breach of
promise, took up all of Wednesday
before n board of arbitrators. Tho
arbitrators were Thomas J. Fln
nerty. John Erk and Buel Dodge.
Tho case was tried In the grand Jury
room'. Tho plaintiff was represent
ed by District Attorney M. E. Simons
and Peter lloff, while Frank P. Kim
ble and R. M. Stocker had the inter
ests of tho defendant in charge. Tho
plaintiff is nineteen years of ago,
while the defendant is seventy-four,
and at the present time is totally
blind. The plaintiff claims that the
defendant promised to marry her.
Both plaintiff and defendant testtlled
very emphatically to stories that
were directly opposite. The defend
ant claimed that she was a servant
in his family and treated as a ser
vant, while the plaintiff swore that
Taylor repeatedly promised to marry
her. Almost the entire population
of Prompton were present as wit
nesses. Tho great bulk of the evi
dence went to prove that the plain
tiff had the reputation of lacking
ver.Kuty and truth ln-hor statements.
The damages were placed at $10,000.
Tho arbitrators brought in a decis
ion in favor of the defendant.
BUTTERED SIDE UP.
Ono of the stories which Levi
Hutchlns, the old time clockmakor
of Concord, N. H., delighted to tell
related to the youth of Dnniel Web
ster. "One day," said the old man,
" while 1 was taking breakfast at
tho tavern kept by Daniel's father,
Daniel and his brother Ezekiel, who
were littlo boys with dirty faces and
snnrly hair, camo to tho table and
asked me for bread, and butter. I
complied with their request, little
thinking that they would becomo
very distinguished men. Daniel
dropped Jiis piece of bread ou the
sandy floor, and the buttered side,
of course, was down. He looked at
It a moment, then picked it up and
showed It to me, saying:
" 'What a pity! Please give mo
a piece of bread buttered on both
sides; then if I let it fall one of the
buttered sides will be up.' "
