He Worried the Judge.
A rtory was recently told of the elder
Judge I'eckham, father of thu supreme
court Justice. In the early days of
dentistry a hickory plug was put Into
the cavity to fill the space where u
tooth ought to be. This plug had to
bo gently pounded Into Its desired po
sition. The old judge was somewhat
addicted to strong language, and when
the d'-ntlst began his wor ktho judge
Indulged In some classic comment. A:
the tupping of the plug continued he
threw all dignity to the four winds of
heaven, and his language became de
cidedly "more forcible than elegant."
When, however, he arose from the
chair nfter what seemed to him an
Interminable period of agony he pulled
out all the stops In his vocabulary for
a grand climax. The- impression on
his listener seems to have been deep
nnd lasting. As the Judge passed out
the dentist grimly remarked to a wait
"Wasn't it beautiful? It wasn't real
ly necessary to pound half so loug.
but I did so enjoy his Inflection that I
almost pounded the hickory plug Into
splinters. Wonderful command of
language the judge has!" Caso and
