Board Silent on Graft Charge,

Silant Lawyer.
It Is almost a maxim nowadays that
a lawyer's real importance at the bar
is in inverse ratio to his prominence
in the papers. The truth is that law
yers of great importance seldom now
adays appear in court In the old days
the great lawyer was the, eloquent
lawyer; today the great lawer Is th
silent one. Then bar reputatlous weoe
mado literally at the bar. Today they
are made in the offices of the sky
scrapers neighboring on Wall street.
In England a visit any day to the law
courts will be repaid by the sight of
some famous K. C. assisting the court
in a dramatization of the trial chapter
from "Alice In Wonderland." But you
might prowl for a month withlu the
precincts of the New York courthouse
without encountering a lawyer whose
name would signify anything remark
able to the hlstorlnn of the New York
bar. American Magazine.
Curious Justice.
A Tarls contemporary gives us a
glimpse of the admlnlst ration of Jus
tice. among the natle8 in the Lower
Niger territory, which for its ettlcacy
mlgh tie compared with Swift's ac
count of -the means adopted by Judi
cial anthorlties in Laputa. we believe,
to discover conspirators. If a native
Is accused of theft the heads of the
village make a decoction of herbs and
put Into the essence about a grain of
ground pepper. The ii(juld is then
lightly applied to the eyelid. If the
suspect weeps he Is considered guilty.
But the murder test Is an improve
ment upon that of theft. The "wise
man" of the district draws a vessel of
water, Into which be puts some poison.
Then he takea a cow's tall and "as
perses" the eyes of the supposed as
sassin. If the man becomes blind he
is pronounced a murderer.
' For Testing Gold.
The add used by Jewelers for testing
gold Is extremely powerful and has to
be very carefully bandied. To pre
vent any considerable qunntity of the
acid being spilled a specially -constructed
bottle is employed. The stopper of
this is made of glass and contains a
long pointed glass rod which passes
down the center of the bottle. When
an article of jewelry is to be tested
the stopper is simply ' removed, and
the Article is touched with the point of
the glass rod to which a very slight
quantity of acid has adhered. Gold is
not affected by the acid, but imitation
metal turns green.
One Way to Arbitrate.
, Commodore Vanderbllt used often to
arbitrate his tenants' disputes, and one
day two fnrmers cnlled on -him In his
function of arbitrator. The commo
dore before consenting to act put to
the 'first tenant the necessary question:
"Now, Henry, if I consent to arbi
trate will you abide by my decision?"
The farmer, a bard headed old fel
low, answered tbougntfully:
"Well, commodore, I'd like to know
what it is first"
