A Jury of Thirteen. Hero is an
exceptional case. Thirteen men re
cently served on a jury in North Caro
lina. It came about in this way;
Chang, one of the Siamese twins, wag
summoned to serve as a juror. Thus
it came about that the remarkable
spectacle of thirteen men on a jury
was shown. The party beaten In the
suit now takes exception, on the
ground that a man not a juror was In
the room when the verdict was agreed
on. It would seem that the court
should not consider this quibble, for it
is nothing else. The proper time to
have raised the point would have been
during the empaneling of the jury;
failing co do so, the party waived all
right to make after objection. By the
way, Eng must have had rather a dull
time with nothing to do or say. It is
a pity these brothers are so attached to
Minnesota Wheat Crop. The
Minneapolis Fanner's Union thinks it
is folly to endeavor to convey the im
pression that the average yield of
wheat in that State this year has been
so much a from 22 to 30 bushels per
acre. It says :
Now we make these remarks at the
risk of being laughed at, but we sliall
set the yield of Minnesota this year at
18 bushels, on an average, and will
not be surprised if it only goes 16. It
is better at any rate to count on fair
yield and be blessed with a large one
than to estimate too high and after
wards be disappointed.
A Fearful Tale. Once a careless
man went to the cellar and stuck the
candle in what he supposed was a keg
of black sand. He sat near it drink
ing wine, until the candle burned low;
nearer it got to the black sand: nearer
and nearer, until the blaze reached the
black sand aud as it was nothing
else but black sand nothing happened.
We would not recommend the fre
quent or constant use of any toediciut.
It is important to take even a good
article judiciously. jNtirsofut' Purflny
