THE PIRST JUDGE LYNCH.
It is said that on the ancient
council books of Gal way, Ireland,
it is duly recorded that in the year
of our Lord 1493 "James Lynch,
Mayor of Galway, hanged his own
son out of the window for defrauding-
and killing strangers, without
marshal or common law, to show a
good example to posterity."
It seems by the chronicle, that
young Lynch had been sent to
Spain by his father, the mayor, to
purchase a cargo of the wini that
biteth like logwood and stingeth
like a madder when it giveth its
dyo color aright in the cup.
But the young man wasted his
substance in riotous living and
fared sumptously three times a
day and four or live times a night
and spent all 'his money at the bar
and in the faro room, before he
bought his cargo. However, his
rating was good, and he loaded his
ship on a short credit, thirty, six
ty and ninety days, fifteen off, and
sailed joyously for home, intend
ing to beat the slate and say
nothing to his father about the
paper. But the credit man of the
concern, didn't exactly like the
looks of things, and sent his neph
ew along to collect the money in j
Galway. Seeing that the nephew's:
presence would probably cause a
coolness in the family circle as
soon as he presented his state
ment, young Lynch "expedited",
matters by tossing the Spaniard
into the loud sounding sea and
then sailed joyously on in an ever
widening moral horizon and under
an intellectual sky that was infi
But one of the sailors some time
afterward lay down to die, and
when. he was positively assured
that he could not possibly live
long enough to be hanged for his
share in the transaction, told may
or Lynch how his son had killed
the Spaniard. Tried before his
own father, the young merchant
was convicted and sentenced to be
hanged. The family and friends
violently prevented the execution,
whereupon the mayor took his sou
up stairs, fastened a staple to the
wall, with his.own hands adjusted
the noose about the young man's
neck, pushed him out of a window
overlooking the public street and
there hanged him in manner and
for reasons set forth in the record.
Whenever you talk about Lynch
law, think of John Fitzstephcns
Lynch, Mayor of Galway, who
filed the first caveat for an inven
tion generally supposed to be
Sensational Story from Dakota
Several parties at work on
farm four and a half miles south
of Redfield, Dakota, have discov
ered an old fort, which occupied
nearly two acres, and frpm which
nearly 200 human skulls have
been exhumed. On an elevation
of ground nearly 150 feet higher
than the surrounding country, and
at a distance of one-half a mile
west of the Chicago and North
western railroad, is a fort nearly
round, and no doubt years and
years ago i was the means of de-
lense lor some tnoe wtnen was
eventually overpowered and massa
cred. This earthwork was thrown
up with a ditch on either side, and
a.t one time three ffiet wide and of
the.same depth. At a point on
the south there is an opening, and
the intrenchments were dug about
twenty feet to a gulch that led to
a small lake a quarter of a mile
distant. The human skulls were
found at the western sido of the
fort, and the mystery cannot be
solved by any one. In a space
three feet deep by eighteen inches
square there were over a dozen
skulls found,as if the' were thrown
in together. jSoother bones were
found, and the only solution is
that the party was massacred and
left where thev fell until the
wolves had picked the bones,
when they were picked up and
buried in one grave. There are
three theories advanced. First, is
stated that a party of nearly GOO
people started -from southern Wis
coristn, and before they reached
the Missouri river were met by the
savages and msnv were massacred, i
and the survivors turned back into'
Minnesota; second, from the skulls
one would judge that the people j
ered. The reuson for this eon- j covering onlv, instead of com
jecture is that on nearly all the plicated piece of machinery,
same side of the head is smashed j scarcely second in Us texture and
in. Third, thp trench where they j sensfcivi'tivss to the ear or eye.
were found is onlv ten leet ionr
all of them nave double teeth all j
round on the lower jaw, and neith- j
er Indians nor Europeans as a rule
have' teeth of that description,
they probably date back to the
mound-builders. Some of the
skulls have no foreheads, and look J
like those of the 'missing link,
being shaped dillerently from any
ever seen at this age, while others
are finely shaped. The corre
spondent had an interview with j

Recoverhig a Lo3tWaBon.
ln the village of W lived
a man who had once been judge (
of tlio county, and was known all '
over it by the name of Judge I..
He kept a store and sawmill, and
was always sure to have the best
of a bargain on his ,-ide. by which ;
means he had gained an ample ,
competency, and some did not lies-;
itate to call him "the biggest ras
cal in the world.1" He was very
conceited withal, and used to de
light to brag of his busines ca
pacity when an' one was near to i
listen. One rainy dav, as quite a
number were seated around the ;
stove in the store, he beiran, as
usual, to tell his great bargains,
and at last wound up with -the ex
pression, "Nobody has ever cheated
me, nor they can't neither."
Judge," said an old man of the
company, "I've ctieatca you mor n
you ever did me."
"How so?" asked the Judge.
"If you'll promise you won't go ;
to law about it, nor do nothing,
I'll tell, or olse I won't; you are
too much of x. lar ehai-actir for
"Let's hear! let's hear!" ciied
half a dozen voices.
"I'll promise," said the judge. !
"and treat in the bargain'
"Well, do you remember thai j
wagon you robbed me out of r
"J never robbed you out of any
wagon," pxcluinied the judge;
' f only got the he? of a bar
gain." "Well, 1 made up my mind to
have it back, and '
"Von never did," interrupted !
the cute Judge.
''Well, yon se Judge. I sold
you one da a very nice pine log,
and bargained with you for a lot
more. Well, that log 1 stoieoJf:
j'our pile, down by your mill, the'
night before, and the next day
sold it to you. The next night I
drew it back home, and sola it to
you the next day; and so I kept
on until you had bought your own
log of me twenty-seven times."
"That is false!" exclaimed the
infuriated Judge, running to hisj
books and examining his log ac-!
counts; "3011 never sold us twenty
seven logs of the same measure
ment." "J know it," said the vender in
logs; "by drawing it back and
forth the ends wore, off until it
was only ten feet long just four
teen shorter than it was the first
time 1 brought it and when it got
so sfcort I drew it home again and
worked it up into shingles, and
then I concluded 1 had got my
wagon back and stowed away in
The exclamation of the judge
was drowned in the shouts of the
bystauders, and the log-drawer
lound the door without the prom
ised treat. And to see a man mad
you have only to ask the Judge if
he ever was robbed.
