Getting a Criminal Practice.
A murderer in New York can, if ho
chooses, take his pick from a consid
erable number of fairly competent
lawyers, even though, ho hasn't a dol
lar with which to pay. "'I was five
vears settinc into a profitable crimi
nal practice," one of the mon in this
lino is quoted as saying, "and I suc
ceeded only by serving gratis. I
haunted police courts, and to every
prisoner committed for trial who had
no counsel, I tendered myself, in tne
trial courts the judge may assign any
lawyer present to defend the prisoner
not provided with- counsel. I made
it a point to be on hand for these as
signments. Of course many of the
cases were so small that they did not
get into the papers at all, and in some
that were reported my name would
not appear, but usually each hard
day's work brought the desired re
ward in the way of publicity. My
practice grew to immense proportions,
but it was a year before I could get
enough money out of it in a week to
pay my modest board billon batur
day night. At the end ot the second
year I had worked up to a barely liv
ing income, but I had a debt left to
clear off, and it is only very lately
that I have become established hrmly
enough to refuse all but cash cases.
Indeed, I do not yet let a good mur
der fall into rival hands on account of
the perpetrator's impecuuiosity. Let
me advise you to commit a sensa
tional crime, if any, because then you
can obtain lawyers free more emi
nent ones, too, than yon may imag
ine." Immfcxratiou Item.
At The Northern Pacific- lauil office
the statement is made that as the
winter increases in severity there is n
slight falling oft in the number of
emigrants and settlers seeking homes
in the northwest, hut the number of
letters of inquiry show a marked in
crease. These letters indicate that
large nnmbeis of people are making
preparations to come to this country
next spring, and portend a large
influx of population. Most of these
inquiries now come from states and
countries where the winters are most
severe and are of longest duration.
A curious fact in connection with
the receipt of letters at tho land
bureau requesting information about
tho country is that large numbers aro
alwavs received from regions allected
with cyclones, violent showers and
uiizzanis. Tiiesc letters invanauiy
make their appearance in great quan
tities from a district just recovering
from one of these disastrious visit
ations. The number of emgrauts
passing through St Paul during
November for points west of Spokane
Falls average hfty-nve per cent.
This was fully up to tho .-iverago of
the previous month, but slightly in
excess of the average for the month
to date. Neics.
The Heat of an Intent.
John Kelley, Esq., Sheriffot Otsego

as an infant It cured him.

"No. my dear," said tho venerablo keeper
of a country store to a timid littlo girl whose
head scarcely camo up to tho level of tho
counter. "No, my dear, wo haven't any red
flannel, but wo havo somo first rato New Or
loans molasses." Softly hinting that sho
didn't think that would answer tho purposo
quito a3 well, tho child went her way in
search of the articlo sho wanted.
"Have you BENSON'S CAPCINE PLAS
TERS?" asked a ceatleman of a certain drug
gist whoso narao could bo kiven wcro it do
sircd. '"I am troubled just now with a touch
of my old friend, tho lumbago, and tho Ben
son'3 Plaster seems to go to tho spot almost as
soon as it touches tho skin."
"Not at present." replied tho druggist, gen
ially " but, wo have lots of plasters just as
good. Thero is Allcock's, tho Capsicum and
others won't ono cf them do as well?"
"My dear sir," rotortcd tho gentleman,
with a slight show of tompor, "i say nothing
against thoso articles, but I am a business
man, end always ask for precisely what I
want, and for nothing else. I may enlighten
you, howevor, when I say that sometime ago.
for another disease, of which tbo Capcine has

with no appreciable benefit- They aro ineffi

tho proprietors of somo of thom being this :
that they make plasters with similar sound
ine names to doctivo tho unwary into believ
ing they aro tho samo thing. Experience
taught mo tho difference. I'll go to tho next
