tCopyright, 1902, by Champ Clark.
King Solomon declared that there is
nothing new under the sun, but I Lave
run across a few things in my life
which appear to run counter to that
bit of wisdom. Anything novel Is, ex
necessitate, interesting. First and last;
insurance agents have tried about ev
ery experiment that human Ingenuity
could Invent to secure business, but 1
am Inclined to the opinion that here Is
an entirely new wrinkle In the Insur
Offer to Insure a Dying Man.
Hon. "William O. Gray, probate Judge
of Tike county, has a mind set on a
hair trigger; likewise his tongue. It
goes off with every little pressure, and
sometimes bis words astonish bis hear
ers beyond measure. He is a Bcbolnr
ly man, an upright Judge, an enthusi
astic partisan and an unconscious hu
morist. He is an Intense Methodist,
and his personal resemblance to Bish
op Marvin is remarknble. Whatever
he lacks In tnct he fully makes up in
candor. Among other plans for mak
ing money he has operated somewhat
as a life Insurance agent, which may
account for the following anecdote:
"While living in Louisiana he had for
neighbor and fellow pewholder an old
gentleman named Samuel Iem, uncle
lo ex-Congressman Kem of Nebraska.
Old Brother Kem bad led a very re
igious and godly life. A few years ago
he became very sick, and Just before
he died Judge Gray called to see him
to cheer him up, and, as the sequel will
show, be administered consolation to
him in nllopathic doses.
"Brother Gray," said Brother Kem
In a feeble voice, "I have been review
ing my life, nnd while I have done the
best I could I am fearful that I have
been a great sinner. Do you suppose
1 have nuy chance to go to heaven?"
Gray replied in bis offhand style,
"I'll Insure you for a quarter Insure
you for a quarter, sir!" And Brother
Kem turned his face to the wall and
crossed the dnrk river with Judge
Grny's words of cheerful assurance
ringing In his ears.
Judge Krum's First Case.
Of all the lawyers practicing at the
St Louis bar sludge Chester H. Krum
is one of the most scholarly and most
brilliant. He gives the following racy
account of his flrst lawsuit:
"Admitted to the bar In 1SG4, I began
practice in 1SC5 after having been
graduated from the Harvard Law
school. My first case arose upon a
shipment of eggs in August from Chi
cago to St. Louis. The amount In
volved was $S7. The consignor claim
ed that the eggs had been shipped In
good order after having been duly
candled. The consignee claimed that
all the embryotlc fowl contained In the
shells needed In order to make them
crow like chanticleer were Bpura nnd
feathers. My client was the consign
or. The consignee suggested arbitra
tion. Knowing less of the intricacies
of hen fruit than of contingent re
mainders, I advised my client to ac
quiesce. Alas for the rarity of Chris
tian charity for the Chicagoese on the
part of St. Louisfans, the arbitrators
found that the eggs were addled, al
though the shipper was doubtless an

Difficulties In Getting Divorces.
There Is no other class of cases in
which the nisi prius Judge has such
wide discretion as divorce cases. There
Is no other In which his Ideas of life
has such controlling Influence. Tbere
Is none In which an appeal Is of such
little value. The dragnet clause of
our statute which authorizes a divorce
by reason of "acts calculated to render
one's condition Intolerable" has as
many constructions as there are trial
Judges. The decision depends entirely !
on tho particular Judge's theory of the
Getting a divorce In the Tike Judicial
circuit used to be ns easy as falling off
a log, and a slippery log at that, but
With Judge Beulun F. Roy's advent
upon the woolsack the prospect wns
changed for those weary of the matri
Judge Boy Is a model husband, fa
ther and Christian gentleman; has a
well defined opinion that when two
people stand up and solemnly promise
before high heaven "to take each other
for better or for worse till death do us
two part" they should be compelled to
stick to their bargain. Moreover, he
took bis first lessons In the law out of
Judge Theodore Brace's book, and that
eminent Jurist and splendid gentleman
Is nearly as much opposed to divorces
as Is an orthodox Catholic
No matter how Judge Roy came by
his theories, it Is a hazardous venture
to apply for a divorce In his court.
Ordinarily he Is the most urbane of
men, but his anger rises perceptibly
when he reaches the divorce docket.
Then the lawyera must walk as skill
fully as though treading on eggs or hot
plowshares. The slightest bobble, and
they, with their clients, are flung Into
A Lawyer's Mistake.
Not long since Judge Dempsey and
myself instituted a divorce suit for a
female client. Captain Morrow and
Governor Ball represented the defend
ant. Really the only thing In contro
versy wns the amount of the allmonv.
for I never saw a pair who hated each
other more intensely. They were fnlr-
ly nchlng for a separation. Finally,
after many conferences and a great
deal of worry, Morrow and I agreed on
the nllmony. As there wns a long case
on trial ahead of us and as between us
we had a whole township subpoenaed
as witnesses, ns a consequence of
which our case was costing somebody
about $100 a day while waiting our
turn, I suggested to Morrow to ask the
Judge to Buspend the case on trial a
moment to secure his consent to try
our case after supper and to announce
that our witnesses as to the question
of alimony might claim their attend
ance and go home. Captain Morrow,
who was a decidedly brilliant lawyer,
was a little woolgathering that day
and hnd forgotten Judge Roy's aver
sion to divorces. So In making the re
quest he came near knocking the' fat
Into the lire and getting both himself
and me out of court nt once. He made
the request as agreed on and then add
ed, "Your honor, I make this request,
as Mr. Clark and I can show you that
both plaintiff and defendant have am
pie cause for divorce." All the lawyers
In the courtroom began to grin, while
Judge Roy's face flushed to the roots
of his hair as he rather tartly said,
"Captain Morrow, if that's true you
can all go home, for neither will get a
divorce here,1' and then the lawyers
roared. I mollified the court by say
ing: "Oh, Morrow doesn't know what
he's talking about. His client has no
case, but mine has a good one."
That night the Judge granted the di
vorce after hearing a good deal of con
clusive evidence and with great reluc
tance. Law a Jealous Mistress.
Some ancient phrasemaker Bald, "The
law is a Jealous mistress," a truth
which many aspiring disciples of
Blnckstone have learned to their ad
vantage and which a great many more
have neglected to their undoing.
Lord Eldon gave this recipe for the
making of a great lawyer, "Live like a
hermit and work like a horse."
If Jefferson Davis Hostetter, one of
the brightest of Pike's third generation
of lawyers, holds for naught the flrst
naif of the lord chancellor's advice and
refuses to live like a hermit, he faith
fully acts upon the latter half and
works like a horse.
Eschewing politics, be wooes his Jeal
ous mistress with the ardor of a Bo
rneo, and be succeeds admirably.
Thomas Jefferson once declared that
"eternal vigilance Is the price of liber
ty." Hostetter evidently bellevea It Is
also the price of success at the bar.
