Last .Saturday a well known ex-Judge
entered the Park Hospital iu a .state
of partial intoxication. He -poke In
coherently, and Inuglied when warned
of the danger of linhihiiig too freely
luring the hot weather. On leaving
the Hospital. Warden Brown advised
him to seek some sliady retreat else
he would lie certain to return on a
stretcher. The judge strolled over to
Delnionlco's ami there invested in the
S. 0. P. brandy. He was soon after

squad, at Broadway and Keade Wreet,
To summon the ambulance from
Park Hospital was the work of a few
moments. "Another case of sun
stroke." said the anxious patrolman.
The surprise of Dr. Vantlewater and
Warden Brown may be imagined when
( hey found their patient to be the ex
Judge. The usual restoratives were
applied, and the case pronounced sim

The lights were turned down and only
the pale gleams of Hie moon entered
the room. A white cloth was thrown
over the cottln, and one solitary atten
dant watched tlie corpse. Tlie ice be
gan to melt, and tlie judge began to
revive. As the influence of tlie ice
lteeome more powerful the contortions
increased, and were soon followed by
a violent torrent of oaths. At last he
opened his eyes looked and felt about
him, and took in the situation. "Great
God I" he exclaimed, "they think I
am dead, and are going to bury me."'
To cry out for help w as his first im

dian. Warden Brown, the doctors,
the orderlies and all the pattento who
could rushed to the coffin. The corpse
insisted that he was not dead, but it re
quired very careful examination and a
serious consultation before Dr. Vande
water would express an opiou. He di
rected the Judge to leave the coffin
and get into a bed. "No sir." ex
claimed the thoroughly frightened
man ; "If I go to sleep you'll bury me,
dead or alive. I'm going home."
And lie did go home, vowing never
to drink any more. So far he lias

GHKK1.EY and the Typos. In the
summer of 18(54 the printers of New
ork naq toe suoiiine audacity to ask
for an advance of wages. They pre
sented their list of prices to the vari
ous employers, the minority ot whom
demurred to the advance.
Horace Greeley had been first Pres

when he found himself unable to pay
the prices demanded by the Printers'
Union, he would retire from tlie busi
ness, convinced that lie was mistaken
iu his vocation. Wlien the demand
was made for an increase of pay in
1864, Mr. Greeley at once attacked the
Printers' Union, which he had done so
much to organize, with Use utmost vir
ulence. The members were denounced
as drunkards, gamesters and whore
mongers, and because a drunken fel
low knocked the hat off the head of a
Union man. the printers were descrln
ed as a band ol midnight assassins, in
a week from tlie time ot the adoption
of the scale of prices by tlie Printers'
Union, tlie compositors employed iu
the Tribune office were on a strike, and
printers were brought from Canada
and tlie West in fact, the entire coun
try north ot Mason and Dixon's line
was niked for men to take tlie places
of the audacious villains who had dar
ed to ask for an advance of wages.
A Shrewd Mekchant.-A wholesale
grocer in New York city, who became
rich in his business, says his rule al
ways was wlieu he sold a bill of goods
on credit, to immediately snbserilie for
the local paper of his debtor. So long
as his customer advertised liberally and
vigorously, he rested, but as soon as
he began to contract his advertising
space he took tlie fact as an evidence
that then! was trouble ahead, and he
invai iably went for his debt. Said he,
" the man who feels too poor to make
his business known, is too poor to do
business." Tlie withdrawing of an
advertisement is an evidence of weak
ness that business men are not slow to
