Whether he talked about the trial or about the war In Manchuria is not stat ed In any of the report ve have seen. IN WOMAN'S COURT IN ORIENTAL BUILDING. He talked; that appears to be the main thing; and tiicroforc all that went be fore was thrown away, to the embar rassment of the parties to the suit and the expense or the public We have ourselves known of an Instance In which a lawyer secured the postpone ment of a trial for a term because ho trot up in the courtroom on the morning- of the second day and told the Judge that a Juror In tho case ha4 spoker. to him. The Judge said such conduct was very reprehensible and sent J he case over without making- in quiry Into the nature of the conversa tion. If"2ic had he would have learned that It consisted of "Good evening; That Is an interesting- case of yours." a remark made in entire Ignorance that It was Improper by a man who was in the habit of making- up his mind him self, and who would never have toler ated any discussion of the merits of the ca?e by the lawyer or by anybody else outside of the courtroom. STALKING A LION. Face to Face With the King or BeastP. From Outing. Fifteen yards from him there was a small tuft of grass about ten yards wide. Ah! if I could reach that. But before I could place that In a straight line between him and me there were CO yards of sunbaked mud to cross. I had lost many a shot from trying to approach too close to gamo and had sworn. "Never again." But the "Devil of the Stalk" was in my heart. I would reach that grass or forego the shot. I drew, examined and replaced the two cart ridges in my IM magnum, looked at the end of the barrels to see that they were clear of sand, placed tho hammers at full cock, and inch by inch crawled from my cover and out onto the stark, naked plain. The lion's back was turned to me. but I could clearly see the droop of the shoul ders as he swallowed the lumps of meat. I was already half way my hand was slowly pushing the rifle another yard ahead, when my ear. tight-pressed to the ground, heard a faint noise, followed by a sharp hiss. A puff-adder raised Its vil lainous squat head from the dust, looked into my face with flashing eyes and quiv ering tongue and sulkily crawled away. Startled I had quickly drawn bacJ my head. but. seeing It depart, had Imme diately again lowered It behind mr out stretched arm. The Hon. however, had caught tho movement and Instantly turned towards me. Tho sun played full upon his face, and I could plainly see the wrinkles on his noe and the blood-flecked slime dripping from his Jowl. He took half a dozen steps to wards me and then to my astonishment returned and resumed his meal. Again I crept forward till at last that patch hid him from my view. I promptly rose to my feet, and bonding low, glided rapidly towards the grass Fifty yards 40 30 r(t-ten. like mid Winter snow my footfalls sank upon the dust. I held my breath. My fingers twitched on the trigger-guard. Mv heart ptood still in the last tautening of "a fran tic strain yet another six steps and I could peer through that-waving bunch of grass at what? . A faint rustle broke the heavj.- silence of the scene. A grand, sad face peeped round the corner of the grays. Our eyes met. The wondering expression broke Into a hideous snarl and before I could recover from my surprise the Hon had gono. Sick at heart. I dashed round the Intervening clump: the wide stretch of grass 40 yards beyond parted to the rush of a great yel low form; loud spoke, my gun; plump came the answer bf the bullet speeding home; a fierce rumbling growl, and north, south, east and west the seemingly un tenanted world was dancing In the noon tide heat, while a' smoke wreath Idly drifted down the plain. Pets the Sailors .Toy. July St. Nicholas. Animal pets have ever been a great Joy to the average sailor. There-is hardly a ship afloat that does not carry one or more such little favorites, to whom the crew are universally kind. More than this, there Is frequently developed an at tachment between men nnd animals that Is seldom to be seen on shore; and the Intelligence displayed by these animals often far exceeds the wonderful stories we sometimes see in print. On men-of-war there is probably more consideration shown the crew In this regard than on merchantmen; at all events, you will find there many more ship's pets. It is by no means uncommon to see upon the same deck a dozen or more well-trained anl- mnls of various kinds whose natural homes are separated by thousands of. miles. Ethics of Smoking. New York Globe. No ono objects to the gentleman who smokes. It Is the rowdy and hog; who Is the nuisance. The "smart Aleck" who Is regardless of the rights of woman. Into whoso .face, he blows his smoke, should be denounced by all decent men. as our wives, daughters and mothers, when alone, have no defonse against that hog. A woman gets Into the smokers seat be causo she Is nervously hurried Into the first seat that comes to her. If she sits next to a gentleman he will not have to ask anyone what he should do. If his smoke blows into her face. Any old kind of cheap perfume. Is nicer than an old pipe or cigarette smoke blown through a diseased nose. The nonsmoker should not have to look out for the smoker. It Is the smoker's place to see that he does not befoul the air that others breathe. AT THE HOTELS. The Portland E. E. Allen and wife. Los Angles; C. 11. O'Brien, Chicago: A. Vree land. J. A.
