The following lines will be recognized by the readers of Alice cary�?T8 poems of among the most Beautiful of the Many Graceful stanzas from her pen. Those not familiar with her works will gather therefrom some idea of the style of the lamented authoress there were seven Fishers with their nets in their bands and they walked and talked by the Seaside Sands yet Sweet of the Sweet Dew fall the words they spake though they spake so Low across the Long dim centuries flow and we know them one and ally Aye know them and love them Alt seven sad men in the Days of old and one was gentle and one was bold. And they walked with downcast Eye the bold was Peter the gentle was John and they All were sad for the lord was gone and they knew not if he would Rise knew not if the dead would Rise. The live Long night till the Moon went out in the drowning Waters they beat about beat slowly through the fogs their Way and the sails drooped Down with clinging wet and no Man Drew an empty net. And now a twos the break of Day the great glad break of Day. A a cast your nets on the other Side Quot a twas Jesus speaking across the tide a and they cast and were dragging hard that disciple whom jeans loved cried Straightway out for his heart was moved a a it is our risen lord our master and our lord a then Simon girdling his Fishers coat went Over the nets and out of the boat Aye first of them All was he repenting sore the denial past lie feared no a longer his heart to cast like an Anchor into the sea Down deep into the hungry sea. And the others through the Mist so dim in a Little ship came after him dragging their net through the tide and when they had gotten close to the land they saw a fire of coals in the Sand and with arms of love so wide Jesus the crucified tis Long and Long and Long ago i since the Rosy lights began to flow o or the Hills of Galilee \ and with eager eyes and lifted hands a the seven Fishers saw on the Sands i the fire of coals by the sea j on the wet wild Sands by the Long ago yet Faith in our souls is kindled just by that fire of of our that streamed o or the mists of the sea. Where Peter girding his Fishers coat. Went Over the net and out of the boat to answer a a love St thou me Quot thrice Over a love so thou me the perplexed housekeeper. I wish i had a dozen pairs of hands this very minute id soon put All things to rights the very Deuce is in in Here a a big washing to be done one pair of hands to do it sheets shirts and stockings Coats and pants How will i Ere get through it dinner to get for six or More not a loaf left Over for sunday the baby Cross a3 he can live tis always so on monday. There a the Cream a tis getting sour i must forthwith be churning and Here a Bob wants a Button on which Way shall i be turning a tis time the meat was in the pot the bread was worked for baking the clothes were taken from the Boll of dear the baby a waking of dear if p comes Home and finds things in this bother. Hell just begin and Tell me All about his tidy Mother. How Nice her Kitchen used to be her dinner always ready a exactly when the dinner Bell rung j hush hush dear Little Freddy. And then will come some Hasty word right out before tro thinking they aay that Hasty words from wives set sober men to drinking. Now Isnit that a great idea that men should take to sinning because a weary half sick wife can t always smile so winning ? when 1 was Young i used to earn my living without trouble had clothes and pocket Money too and hours of Leisure double. I never dreamed of such a Fate when i a lass was courted wife Mother nurse seamstress Cook housekeeper chambermaid laundress Dairy woman and scrub generally doing the work of six for the Sake of being supported. . Legal strategy. By a at Toxey. Charles Lamb gives a funny account of Trio origin of roast pig. The owner of a litter of juvenile porkers roasted to death by the casual burning of the family Sty in picking about among the ruins and sorrowfully handling the Crisp Quot remains chanced to Burn his figers. Clapping them to his month lie tasted a pleasure so exquisite that it made him at once forget his pain and his loss. Pouncing on the prize he not Only dispatched the whole Barbecue at a sitting licked his lips for More. The Story got wind and the entire country was ablaze with burning pig Pons nor was it till Many years after that some adventurous innovator shocked the adherents of conservative cookery by proposing a new and less expensive process of preparing the favorite dish. It is not for us lawyers to laugh at this. None have been More prone than we to roast pigs according to precedent. All of us can remember when in every action to recover the value of one Many a property wrongfully appropriated by another it was necessary to allege a fictitious losing by the former and finding by the latter and All because the first Case of the sort hundreds of years ago happened to be one of real losing and finding. Nay i have even known the loss and feb Dong of a Patch of cabbages to be solemnly averred and no lawyer thought of smiling at it in the department of evidence we have been especially slow to learn. If you want to know Bow cramped and artificial its rules Are just get into the witness Box to Tell All you know about some Case and see How much you la be let to Tell. Twenty years ago it was worse. No one was then admitted As a witness who was either a a party to the record or interested to a Cenius Worth in the controversy eve. The consequence was a frequent impossibility of proving by competent witnesses undoubted facts which neither of the litigants had they been Suffy de to speak would have thought of denying. The devices to which counsel and clients were driven by a rules unreasonable were often an sing enough. On one occasion a countryman visiting the Eirv deposited his Money some two Hundred dollars with his landlord no one being present at the time. Next Day having occasion to make some purchases lie applied for his Money and was met with a Cool denial of its having been Ever received. On taking Legal counsel the gentleman was astonished to learn that being without a witness As matters Tood Bis Case was hopeless. The lawyer however was a Man of resources. Dismissing his client with sections to return in a couple of Days said Lije a a done to you put yourself out on no a a in be been threatening to Settle it for a month Back a said Greg a a times die been tight and a and How would monday week do a. A a to a Dot a answered Lije. Quot full Send it round a answered Lije. A curious sound came from tho coffin. The ghost of a chuckle hurdles would have called it Greg gave one jump and a a lips in an adjacent cow pasture. Looking Back he saw Lijen so Prentice the most mischievous in Guys neck with plenty of sense and of lawful age to be a tvs guess sitting up in the coffin laughing like mad Greg took in the situation at a glance. He had been duped into committing himself before a witness. A a it a a dirty Nasty mean trick a lie exclaimed. A a what is it a said Lije. A a Sliv Trifid us with a body a feelings about old Boke Makiu by Lieve lies dead a a a and so he is a said Lijie Only i was going Arter the buddy inst id of Fet Chiuz it Greg turned off in digest Lijie bawling after him a a done to Forgit monday week and per links it la save us some Greg did t forget he has never More than half enjoyed himself at a funeral since. A question answered. By 1iauk Twain. A a discarded i loved and still love the Beautiful Edilha Howard and intended to marry her. Yet during my temporary absence at Benicia last week Mas i she married Jones. Is my happiness to be thus blasted for life t have i no redress Quot of course you have. All the Law written and unwritten is of your Side. The intention and not the act constitutes crime in other words constitutes the deed. If you Call your bosom Friend a fool and intend it for an insult it is an insult if you do it playfully and meaning no insult it is not an insult if you discharge a pistol accidental and kill a Man you can go free for you have done no murder if you try to kill a Man and manifestly intend to kill him fail utterly to do it the Law still holds that the intention constituted the crime and Vou Are guilty of murder. Ergo if you Viau married Elwitha accidentally and without Reulla intending to do it you a Trade in riddles. Nino persons sailed from Basle Down the Shine. A jew who wished to. Go to sch Alampi was allowed to come on Board and Conmey with them upon condition that he could conduct Nim self with propriety and give the Captain eighteen Kreutzer for his passage. Now it is True something jingled in the jews a pocket when he had Brock his hand against it the Only Money there was a twelve Kreutzer piece for the other was a brass Button. During the first part of the voyage the passengers were very talkative and merry and the jew with Lis Wallet under his Arm for he did not Lay it aside was an object of much mirth and mockery As also is often the Case with those of his nation. But As tho vessel sailed Onward and passed the Ringen and St. Veit the passengers one after another grew silent and gaped and gazed listlessly Down the River until one cried a a a come jew do you know any pastime that will amuse is i your fathers must have contrived Fany a one during their journey in the wilderness a a now is my time a thought tho jew a to Shear my he then proposed that they should sit round in a Circle and he with their permission would sit with them. Those who could not answer the questions any one proposed should the one who propounded them a twelve Kreutzer piece. This proposal pleased the company and hoping to divert themselves with the jews wit or stupidity each one asked at random whatever chanced to enter his head. Thus for example one the first asked a a How Many soft boiled eggs could the giant Goliah eat on an empty stomach a All said it was impossible to answer that question the jew Baid a one for he who has eaten one egg cannot another on an empty stomach a and the other paid him twelve Kreutzer. A wait jew a thought the second a i will try. You out of the new testament and i think i shall win my then said he a Why did the apostle Paul write the second epistle to the corinthians a a a because he was not in Corinth a said the jew otherwise he would have spoken to so he won another twelve Kreutzer piece. When the third saw that the jew was so Well versed in the Bible he tried him in a different Way. A who a said he a prolongs his work of Long of possible would not actually be married to her at. A cd co a letes it in time it a All because the act of marriage could not j a a a a a California Story. By Captain so botox. Be Complete without the intention. And Ergo in the strict sense of the Law since you deliberately intended to marry Elwitha and did no to do it Yon Are married to her All the same because As i said before the Norima. If a As Clear As Day that Elwitha is your wife��.1 and 5-our redress lies in taking a club and i he 1 mutilating Jones with it As much As Yon i called to his Aid a reliable Friend to whom Ean. Any Man has a High t to protect his he privately unfolded his plans. I from the advances of other men. Acting under the lawyer s instruction.11, ent Vou have the Friend presented Ennis Elf at the inn As a guest and after securing quarters deposited three Hundred dollars in the landlord s hands taking Good care to have a witness by. Some hours after he called alone for the Money and the landlord another alternative Yon were married to Elwitha first because of your deliberate intention and now Yon can prosecute her for bigamy in subsequently marrying Jones. But there is another phase in this complicated Case you intended to marry Elwitha and knowing there was a proof of the Deposit consequently according to Law she is voter a a. L. ,. I it. A 1. To nov trim incl Hill a made no difficulty in handing it Over. The same Day Boniface was served with a writ for the three Hundred dollars and on seeking advice was told that As there was a witness to his receipt of the Money and Noue to its return he had nothing for it to it again. Willi two Hundred dollars of it the lawyer reimbursed the countrymen and kept the remainder for his fee. Not less adroit was the March that Lije Loomis stole on the a a statute of Lije was the factotum of Guys neck. He did a miscellaneous business of Carpenter cow doctor and coffin maker adding to his other functions that of undertaking to the county poor Bouse. He was withal an easy Good natured fellow free to Trust and a creditor. Among the others whom Lije had trusted to his Cost was Greg Grimes without exception the greatest Promise maker and breaker in Guys neck. I verily believe to would if possible have put a creditor off till the last judgment and then on the score of its being a Busy Day have begged him to wait till to Morrow. Wife there is 110 getting around that she did t marry you and if she never intended to marry you. You Are not her j husband of course. Ergo in marrying a Jones she was guilty of bigamy because j she was the wife of another mail at that time which is All very Well As far As it the rope maker if he is industrious a said the jew. In the meantime they Drew near to the Village and said one to the other a that is then the fourth said a in what month do the people of Kamlach cat tilt �1 a a in february a said the jew a for it has Only Twenty eight a a there Are two natural Brothers a said the fifth a Suud still Only one of them is my a the Uncle is your fathers said the jew a and your father is not your a fish now leaped out of the water and the sixth asked a what fish has his eyes nearest together a a a the smallest a said the jew. The seventh asked a How can a Man ride from Basle to Bern in the Shade in the Rammer time when the Sun shines a a a when he comes to a place where there is no Shade he most dismount and go on foot a said the jew. The eighth asked a when a Man rides in the Winter time from Bern to Basle and goes then Don t Yon see she Lead no a ia3 f0rg0ttcn his gloves Bow most he other husband when she married jonc8> Many it re so that his hands shall not freeze a and consequently Slio was not guilty of bigamy. Now according to this View of the Case Jones married a spinster who a who most make fists ont of them a said the jew. The ninth was the last. This one ask was a widow at tho same time and Aneth e a it Jow give Piersons Divide five eggs or Many a wife at the same time and yet a t iat Cacaj Man receive one and who Hud no husband and never had one Ujj one remain in. The gt8h v9 and never had any intention of getting j a Man most take the dish with married and therefore of course no or a egg a said the jew a and he can let it had been Marrit a and by the Samo reas a Jere a Long As Yon zoning you Are a Bachelor because you now to his turn and he litre never been any ones husband and j determined to make a clean sweep. After a married Man because you have a wife Many preliminary compliments he asked living and to All intents and purposes a with Quot an air of mischievous friendliness widower because you have been deprived j a Jow a Man Fry two trouts in three of that wife and a consummate ass fur Jiang g0 that a Trout my lie in each a going off to Benicia in the first place one could answer this and one alter while tilings were so mixed. And by this the other gave him a twelve Kreutzer time i have got myself so tangled up in piece. When the ninth desired that he guru i of nun. M. Luis a a. A non caches of this extraordinary Case a should solve the Riddle he rocked to and Greg had wheeled Lije with promises that 1 sha11 a Jay 10 Galvet no i fro it shrugged ins shoulders and rolled his till the Lutt cry a claim a a As attempt to advise Yon i get confused and fail to make myself understood. A a a �?1 a i think i could take up the argument where i left off and by following it closely awhile perhaps i could prove to your satisfaction either that you never existed at All or that you Are dead now and con in the year 1852, i with three others who were officers in the Good steamship a a Winfield Scott a then lying at the Whan in san Francisco became imbued of Man others before had and have since been with tho pervading Gold fever. Be signing on positions in the Good ship we started far the i mops Gold mines of a pc arson a our journey was accomplished on foot to carrying on loads on on backs the san in the Middle of the Day terrible hot. The nights being cold we would build a fire and wrapping on blankets around is a us in our Little Beds a and then compose ourselves to sleep soon to be awakened by the dismal bark of the thousand coyotes bears and other a insects a that would quickly surround is. A Brand from the fire would cause them to scamper off in a hurry shaking the ground us they went pursuing our course in tho Day time our Only guide through the forests being the innumerable Quot sardine boxes a that literally paved the Way and constantly in dread of meeting the noted Cut Throat and robber a a san Joaquin a and his baud who were then roaming round the country the terror of All miners to finally at Sunset of the ninth Day reached Carson s Creek and took no our quarters in a deserted log Cabin standing apart some distance from any other. Building a fire and sending no to the store in the miners Camp on the Hill for some beef we soon Felt As if we were capable of meeting san Joaquin bears or a any other on looking round in the one room of the Cabin we discovered a platform raised about three feet front the ground there being no floor which evidently had been used tor a Bedstead and three of As took on Blanket and Laid Down to get Bome sleep myself in the Middle the fourth one whose name was Jack Davis having been Wise enough to bring his Hammock along with him Bung it High no to Trio rafters. Sometime during the Middle of the night the fire having gone ont we were awakened by Jack Davis Yelling a a jump up Fellers jump up. There a a a grizzly under the bed he will soon have Yon a the intelligence of our dangerous position for u time paralysed is and neither of is possessing the requisite amount of courage to get up we soon became engaged with each other in a desperate straggle for the Middle of the bed i being tho strongest managed Tol old my own. Meanwhile Jack Davis from his comparatively secure position High no on the rafters yelled incessantly for us Roget up and attack the bears calling is cowards Sowers and threatening to come Down and lick us Bear and All which Brilliant a Olio old l ii 1qduuf . My two bedfellows failing in their attempt to get the Middle of the bed agreed with me to jump for the door which we did. But now another difficulty presented itself no one knew How to open it. On situation becoming desperate we turned to face the animal and from under the bed two Large red eyes glared on us while from the rafters came the consoling yells from Jack a now he a coming look ont you re All gone ainu to Yon a Nice set sailors blast Yon you re a Sowers go Home a which last advise every Mother s son of is would then and there have gladly consented to act upon. Another straggle now ensued Between u3 three As to which should be in front or rather who should be behind when they Fiu Olly sue be Decd in thrusting me in front and at the same time the animal sprung out striking me in the breast and face knocking me Down and in my fall taking the others with me. Each Ono thinking he Nad hold of the animal while on the ground we gave one another the most unmerciful pounding that any mortal Ever received being encouraged in on Good work by Davis Yelling to us a give it to and knowing the lies we Hod detected him in to raved like mad and would have considered it a personal favor if we a had All indulged him in a fight which we respectfully declined.

Losing patience at last Lije took his account Over to the Squires when to Bis to Small discomfiture he Learned that unless be could get a new Promise from Bis debtor with a witness to it he might whistle for his Bill. Such Fellows As Greg always know a Good Deal of Law especially the Sharp Points of it Greg would talk As freely and was As full of promises As Ever when he and Lije were alone before others would either evade the subject or else remain Provo kingly mum. A one Day Lije drove up to Greg a door with his old Gray Mare and Spring Wagon a Plain Pine coffin one of those Flat topped affairs deemed Good enough for poor folks being visible behind the seat.

A tavern keeper in Pennsylvania whose sign swung Ana creaked at tho loot of a Laurel Hill a once received a Call from a guest from Viiginia and said guest called for a a mint Julep to slake his thirst a a what is a mint Julep a inquired the landlord. A a a mint Julep is a Julep with mint in it replied the virginian. A will you make one yourself Here Ore the liquors the sugar the spices i Haven t any mint. A a a a i will make two Ono for each of is if i can find the mint. In a few moments the from a Field where he had found some mint and he made the coveted beverage. The tempting doses were repeated Oyer and Over again and the delighted landlord was grateful for the lesson he had received in mixing honors and making juleps. The virginian left the next Day and directed Bis Steps homeward. Six months afterwards he had a business Mil to the neighbourhood of a Laurel Hill a and meeting a boy in the Road he inquired of him the whereabouts of his old Friend tho landlord. A a he has grub a said the Bov. A a where has he gone a said the stranger. A a he bos gone no a replied the boy. A a what do Yon mean to a a ainu to you the Man that put grass into fathers liquor some time ago a a a yes i taught your father How to make mint a a Well the old Man got to he very fond of drinks with grass in them and he kept on taking them Early in the morning until late at night and he never stopped until lie went a what do you mean a -.
