which, rightly or wrongly, is known as
the resort of the gay and careless. She
was typically countrified in nppearance,

Without, however, any sign of halt-

of a stranger to city ways, she sat down
at the most conspicuous. table in the
‘room. A surly looking short card play-

dejected turf gamblers, prevented from

who hadn't spoken to each other for
half an hour, observed her with eli abt
smiles. .

But the other would not bot. He said

It is said that the saying, ‘Mach may
be done with a Scotchman if he be
caught young,’ which has pussed into a
historical witticism, was first spoken by
Dr. Johnson in reference to Lord Mans-

Lord Mansfield, having received his
education entirely in England, always
considered himself an Englishman, but
the fact that he was born im Scotland
was once referred to with great effect.

as Mr. Murray, was counsel for the gov-

hardship, where the injustice of banish-

Mr. Nowell, counsel for the Jew, re-

so lightly of the matter, I ask him to

The first man to be killed in this
country with a bullet from the new

fey, a desperate military convict. Sen- |

Sheridan, near Chicago, when be made |

pointed ball, at a distance of 50 yards,
passed thromgh Cotfey’s head, then it
went through a live tree eight inches in |
| diameter amd afterward buried itself |
‘three feet deep in the hillside 30 yards |
beyond. The ball entered the back of
the fugitive's head, just under his hat.
and passed out through the forehead. |

A story said the bullet exploded in the |

Lieutenant Thompson said to a reporter
of the Chicago Tribune:
‘“The naw small servica bullet nsed in

by a thin enpro-nickeled steel envelope. |
It is light in weight, being about 220
grains, as against 400 grains for the
caliber 45 lead bullet used in the old
Springfield rifle. The lead in the new
bullet is hardened by a mixture with
