"li the early years of our practice here, wo
young lawyers, stai ting out with high hopes
In our profession, were of tho opinion tlmt law
suits might tw reduce I to as grout a cortnlnty
an death ami taxes; but after n fow years
practice at tho liar that hallucination disap'
iH'tiicd, never to return. We nscei tallied
that thoiklemoof Juiispitidence was as un
certain as the empyrlcnl profesiion of medi
cine, and moi- iiplexlng than good, sound
orthodox theology. It took us only n few
yeai-s to nsccrtnlti that the venlleU of jui los
ere quite uncertain, and that Jurors somo
tlmesgavo free loins to their prejudices, but
umnlly on the lde of the weak ugalnst tho
strong. As, far example, they uro in faor
of a wonitin against a man, a Inliorer against
the employer, of a teiiatit against his landlord,
of an Individual iignlimt a coriwrntlon, of a
poor man as against a rich man. The more
a man is prejudiced tho Iota ho knows it, He
uiny bo likened to one riding In on emigrant
car ull night. Hy moi nlng ho smells notblng
wixug, and thoodoisare as fragrant as tho
Garden of Eden. In tho early days of our
practice tho attorneys on both Bides wore
usually lloivo und combative delighted In
skinning eacu other's witnesses, In tho uLuso
of tho opMilng eounsol, and evon tho Judge,
at times, got isilMieil olf. Our civillaition is

Wo Hud that tho moH successful lawyor is, in
tho trial of a case, a true gentleman. Wo
have ascertained that good nature, with a
clean, fair, foiciblo and bilef statement of
'octfc and arguments, will prevail over vitu
iwration, and oven oratory, In tho early days
wo often bundled our evidence to the Jury
as If toeing It with a pitchfork, without due
method and chronological order, or Its relev
ancy. And one other thing wo then prided
ourselves in, mul that mus u long and intri
cate crom examination. It enabled tlio Jury
and court to boo our leni nlng nml cunning.

Nkw Yoiik, Feb. 1U.--A iliirllng, pret
ty, but economical llttlo lady friend of
rnlno wiw weeping tho other day when I
went to neo her. Hho Hung open tho
door of her wnrdrobo nml showed mo
tho ball cloak In tho IIIiihI ration.
"That's what it 1st That in what nils
nml I wanted to buy n otock of grocer
ies, nml I don't know how It happened,
but I piiHHcd n door where they weru sell
ing out tho loveliest Paris gowns nnd
cloaks for almoHt nothing, nnd I just
went In to wo wlmt thoy were, nnd
somehow- before I knew it I had bought
tlmt. I got It for $200, only think! It
had Ih'i'ii marked down from V)0. Hut
when I ctituo to get homo I remembered
tlmt I never go to balls, nnd it in not
Hultuhlo for Btreet, oven In n cnrrlago,
nnd I HH!iit nil my grocery money, and
Charllo will Im) ho uiigry, and I don't
know what to dol"
TIIR MAONIKICENT OAItMENT.
Tho cloak uiiaof hllk, ho HtlH that it
looked llko marble, und nil nroiiud It was
it bund of HtulTy ostrich fenthera. There
wafl u pale pink mirnli lining nml long
Jewish tileoves, hanging loosely over tho
tight inner onw, nnd the front was oen

inodlsto'ii nrt. Hut it wnn of no use to my
friend, und Mm finally imiunged to sell it
for 91S."i, mul considered heiHelf lucky.
Tho truly economical woman does not
look for bargains. When rIio receives
from hcrudoring and manly husband her
quarterly "allowance," Mio first carefully
looks over her wnrdrobo and decides
whether or no any of tlio garments sho
already possesse can by means of a llttlo
now trimming or any changes bo mado
useful, nnd notes down tlio kind nnd
amount needed. Then hIio makes n list
of "must haves," another of "would liko"
nnd another for "luxuries."
Then alio buys her things nnd forth
with sets to work to ninko them herself,
or to "huvo in" n dressmaker for n fow
days. Ilor goods nro, when chosen
thus, of ivs good material ns her purso
can buy, nothing Is wasted, and thoy nro
chosen with n roferonco to tho b.alnnco
of her wnrdrobo in her eye. Such n
buyer out of very Blender menus can
contrive to dress oven elegantly, and
buy nil the "must hnves," "would likes"
and "luxuries" in shnpo of pretty bits of
laco, ribbon, a nice feather or pair of
One lady had n drnb walking jacket,
half loose nnd decidedly out of Htylo.
Did sho go and buy an expensive gar
ment? In tho language of tho Philistines,
"Not much." Sho thought it over sev
eral times with her pretty head on ono
Bide, nnd finally put on her bonnet nnd
went out, got n pattern for a tight jacket,
Bomo black sotttncho braid, with a less
quantity of gold hrnid, nnd went homo
and to work, nnd in thrca days had a
jacket tlmt was tho envy of hor friends,
who could not believo that it wns that
same old drnb sucquo. This shu could
wear with a plaid cheviot or a plain
dark cashmere, nnd it wns dressy enough
to wear over a black silk.
SEW FROM OLD AND rilKTTY NEW ONE.
A study in drapery for n young worn

dress on tho girl who is admiring, with n
llttlo envy, tho appearance of the now old
jacket. It is of 11 g tired bongnline, in
brown nnd blue, with an underskirt of
stripes to match. Nothing could bo more
girlish nnd graceful, nnd it fs n stylo

dainty design would bo pretty in whitoor
