1 Sharp Lesson.
In trials for murder nobody is aston
ished now a. day at seeim; the iurv
ring in a verdict of not guilty, derived
from a process of reasoning not to be
found in any of tho known systems of
logic. In fact, with ever ready and
inventive intelligence the jurors build
p a new system every time to fit tho
case on hand, and with unerring cer
tainty arrive at tho desired point of
l ears ago in tho gold mining times
of Cariboo, jurors seem to havo been
mere apprentices, though they did
pretty well considering circumstances.
hero was a miner killed in Heaver
Lake by a man named Gilchrist, who
had dispatched two men in California
Iready. He wai sitting at the table
when the miner canio in, threw down
an ounco of gold dust, bet, and won.
lie winner bet again with tho same
result as before, and then asked Oil
chist rather flippantly, if there was any
other gamo ho could play better. lho
gambler took offence at this, raised his
pistol and shot the miner dead.
lho murderer was tried and the jury
brought in a verdict of "manslaughter."
Turning to tho prisoner Chief Justice
Begbie said : "It is not a pleasant duty ,
for me to haye to sentence you only to
prison for life. Your criino was
unmitigated murder. You desert o to
be hangod. Had the jury performed
their duty, I might now have tho pain
ful satisfaction of condemning you to
death." And then, addressing the
jury, ho continued : "You, gentlemen,
permit me to say that it would givo me
great pleasure to see you hanged, every
one of you, for bringing in a murderer
guilty only of manslaughter."
Danrlng or Kissing.
It may be asserted in a general way,
that wherever in the U. S. you do not
Gnd dancing you find kissing. In com
munities where dancing was disap
proved I have seen "string games call
ed for and carried into practico at en
tertainments held in school houses and
oven at church sociables. In such
places church members and, for
aught I know, deacons take part in
the amusement; and 1 have seen it de
velop a friskincss, so to speak, in griz
zled men, which mado thorn ono would
say, anything but seductive or beguil
ing to the young and fair. Among
those of earlier years kissing becomes
in such communities a systematic pur
suit, like hunting or fishing. Young
girls whoso parents object to it or neg
lected or disliked; a young man in such
village told a friend of mine, with
some indignation that she was the only
girl in town whom ho had not kissod.
It is of no use to object to it as im
moral where tho church members aro
committed to it, Perhaps it cannot bo
called immoral; but when society lias
reached a certain stage of refinement
these gamos vanish. Tho sy.ubol of
that increased refinement is usually
dancing, Danoing, whatever its draw
backs, serves practically as an antidote
to kissing game; where one begins tho
other dies out Thoy do not seem to
flourish and side by side; at any rate,
peoplo rarely go back from dancing to
kissing. Granting, for the sake of ar
gument, that it is necessary to havo
some amusement, the choice lies, in our
yillagcs and their scattered families, bo.
tween these two forms of relaxation.
Which is tho butter of the two!
The question of Parnoll's religion
has often been discussed, but never
elucidated. Religion enters so acutely
into politics and society over hero that
a conspicious man must declare himself.
Tho compulsion which Gladstone invites
and Churchill does not repel Parnoll
has ignored. Ireland is overwhelm
ingly Catholii Yet she trusts this
man implicitly not to permit any legis
lation which will be offensive to her
traditions. A great critio described
the religious Btate of Germany after
tho thirty years' war as petrified
Protestantism. Parnoll is a petrified
Protestant. lie has never spoken a
word which would iudicato tho presenco
of a dogma in his conscience. He has
never written a line to disavow tho
hereditary creed of his family. But
he has had to encounter so much
malignant stupidity on the part of
recriminating exponents of faith claim
ing to be divine that one may credit a
Btory told of him. A ldver of Greek
lore quoted in his presence ono day the
ancient crope that Socrates had brought
philosophy down from heaven, rarneii
smiled his palo smile and replied :
