Charles Frederick Stanebury has
brought together the best of the anec
dotes of Tom Nolan, who .was known
popularly among members of the New
York bar ns "Counselor Nolan." For
many year the counselor kept Judges
and lawyers of New York laughing,
and at political conventions he was one
of the Important, if not serious, attrac
tions. The counselor was himself sul
generis. His drollery was individual.
Borne characteristic stories from Mr.
Stansbury'B collection are here set

her case had been placed upon the

the top of the calendar, and isoinn was
on hand to try it The opposing coun

eloquence, laying much stress upon the
fact that Mrs. Morlarlty had been put
to enormous trouble and expense of

was sitting, was not convinced ep-

the barrister arose.
"Tour honor," said he, "has seen fit
to grant n postponement of the case,
and. while I humbly submit to the rul
ing of the court, yet 1 would like to ask
your honor to do me a personal favor."
"Certainly, counselor, with pleasure,"
replied Judge Dugro. "What Is it?"

The mule is ready to begiu work two
or three years earlier than the hone.
He can be put to pretty heavy pulling
when he Is three years old. and from
that time until he is forty. If he has
fair trentment and does not meet with
an accident, he is not likely to lose any
time. He is not subject to the many
ailments to which the horse Is a vic
tim, at least not to any great degree.
He lives about twice as long, and his
actual period of usefulness Is nearly
three times as long, for "the horse is
really not fit for heavy Bcrvlce'untll he
is five years old or after he Is twenty.
while a mule will often do good service
for forty years, and they have been
known to work fifty, according to one
writer, without being turned out at
any time during all that long period.
Like the ass, the mule will live npon
next to nothing, and during all his for
ty years of hard service a mule will
not require and generally does not get

Where? AHanlce Growa.
The Island of Jamaica produces about
all the allspice that is used. It is known
also as pimento, or Jamaica pepper. The
tree on which the berries grow is ever
green, and the flowers grow in dense
clusters. These develop into small
green aromatic berries, the size of black
pepper. If nllowed to ripen, they be
come pulpy and lose some of their pun
gency. For commercial purposes the
berries are gathered when green, care
fully dried In the sun and afterward
packed in bags Holding ICO to 180
pounds and shipped. Pimento trees
grow in many parts of tropical Amer
ica, but nowhere do they thrive as in
Jamaica. The trees are never planted
by man and receive no cultivation
worthy of the name. The seeds are
dropped by the birds, and the rains and
the tropical sun do the rest Surplus
trees are cut down and become walking
sticks and umbrella handles. This spice

The Dev. Dr. Mackenzie of San Fran

rishioner who had a "limb" of a boy.
She bad invited the doctor to dine.
"Willie," she said to her hopeful, "pass
Dr. Mackenzie a potato."
Willie seized the potato between
thumb and finger, and before his moth

he had tossed it across the table and
squarely into the good man's lap.
"Judgment!" cried Willie.
