There was a little stir one day in

that they had "otten jobbed off with
sergents, instead of judges in those
iwrts, and was lie really a bmia ik
Judge!'" Having had his mind satisfi
ed on this point, the SbertrT gracefully
took his place by the side of tlie judge
on tlie Uick seat, but was politely in
formed that etiquette required that lie
should sit opposite. Once a judge
told a mayor Aat he presided over an
ancient city. "Yes my Lord," was
the answer, "it always was an ancient
city." We expect It was the same

sounding before us, and there was a
point of ceremony to be settled which
Sime absurd stories have been told
of judges thinking aloud. The fol
lowing story is told by some of the
registrars of the Court of Chancery of
a great f hancellnr. "A barrister,
whom he liad not previously heard,
was retained to argue before him. Tlie
counsel was a man of ability, but be-
?ui in a very confused and tiounder-
niauncr. , Lord Unanceilor
"What a fool that man is !" After a
wliile the man got more collected.
Lord Chancellor "Ah ! not such a
fool as I thought." Finally he quite
recovered himself, and proceeded ad
mirably. Lord Cbancellor " Kgad !
It Is I that was the fool.
There was one judge who liad a trick
of checkini! witnesses wiam tliey got
on too fast for his' notes by saying :
"stay, stay . ' lie was caueti the oiti
staymaker. Oft times they show ad
mirable temper ami discretion, a
judge who was summing up a case,
was greatly disturbed by a young law
yer who was talking aloud. With
great benignity Iw said : "Mr. Gray,
if ever you arrive here, which some of
these days 1 hope you will do, yon will
know the inconvenience of counsel
talking while you are summing up."
A eurkNM story Is told, illustrating
the legal precision of a judge, lie
asked a magistrate at a circuit dinner
Whether he would take some venison,
the gentleman answered, " "Thank
von, my ion, I am going to once some
boiled chicken." Lord Tenderton re
torted, " That, ilr, Is no answer to my
question ; I asked you If yon will take
some venison, and I wiil thank yon to
answer yes or no. without fnrther pre
varication." The story was originally
told in tlie Owtrterlif Keriev, but it is
challenged by Lord Campbell.
, With some judges the habit of ad
vocacy has grown so inveterate that
they nave been quite unable to lay It
aside. Jf ever they have seriously
tried they have never succeeded in the
attempt. The case ins em been
known of a judge on tlie bench thun

was wooded what he W-ortd lnd to

" Do ! why he will hear the other

was indeed an egregious example, it

After twenty rears of incessant labor,
