wilted to witness tli j ceremony of instal

found places in the room were J udge
Thurman, who was conducted to a seat
within the small. space reserved for the
marshal, and who became the con
spicuous center of attraction during the
half hour proceeding the entry of the
justice: Sirs. Fuller, wife of the chief
justice, with six daughters and one son,
for whom seats were reserved; Mrs. Jus

The chief justice arrived at the capitol
at 11:30, and proceeded to the private
office of the justice, where he took the
oath of allegiance in the presence of the
associate justices, the oath beiog admin
istered by the senior Member of the court,
Associate Justice Miller. At 13 o'clock
the associate justices, in their robes of
silk, headed by the marshal, entered in
procession. The chief justice, also wear
ing his robe of office, w is escorted to a
place at the olerk's dsk.
After a moment of silence Justice Mil
ler said: " Gentlemen of the bar: I have
the pleasure to iuform you that since the
last meeting of this court and adjourn
ment. Chief Justice Hon. Melville W.
Fuller has been appointed, confirmed by
the senate and received his commission.
He is here and ready to take the oath of
office. The clerk will read the commis

Chief Justice Fuller arose and, holding a
bible in one hand, read from manuscript
the oath of office: " I, Melville W. Ful

impartially perform all the duties incum?
bent on me as chief justice of the United
States, according to the best of my ability
and understanding, agreeably to the con

Von Moltke and the calm wisdom and
jat reasoning power of Wellington, all
the power of Marshal Bugeaud and of
Bouwaroff to Inflame the Imagination of
their soldiers and impart to them some of
the fiery spirit of reckless daring which
burned within their own breasts. The
personal magnetism which such great
men possess so largely, and can without
effort impart to others, was, I think, want
ing in our "Iron Duke." The marvelous
magnetic power of the great generous
leader (Napoleon) over his men was cer
tainly undervalued by Wellington. lie
seems In his mind to have divided his
army into gentlemen and common men.
placing a great un bridged gulf between
the two classes. With one or two ex
ceptions, he apparently had the very poor
est opinion of the military capacity of his
generals of division, while he believed
with all his cold heart in the dash, cour
age, endurance, loyalty and patriotism of
his regimental officers, the sons of Eng
lish squires and younger sons of what
was then called our aristocracy.

ciative terms of those brave soldiers who
carried him in triumph from Lisbon to
Toulouse, and If he had any affection for
them he never showed It. lie believed
that when restrained by the most rigor
ously enforced discipline, and led by Eng
lish gentlemen, they were, under him, in
vincible. But he never hesitated to de
scribe them as a collection of ruffians, the
blackguards of every British parish, the
scum of every English town. In fact, he
was a thorough aristocrat at heart, with
all the best sentiments, but still with all
the prejudices of that class. There was
no genial sympathy between him and his
soldiers; they respected him, and during
his later campaigns they had the most un
bounded confidence in his military genius,
but beyond his own Immediate military
household, with whom he lived on terms
of intimacy, no one loved him. It is for
this reason that I think he will never be
classed in the same rank of military
greatness of real military genins with
the five great leaders of men I have
named above. Lord Wolseley In Fort

How easily can the names of the great
teachers of youth be eounted upon the
fingers pf one hand! Of the great teach
ers of the common schools we have almost
no traditions. Pestalozzi and Froebel

guiding lines the average Instructor

ignorance becomes ts awn law and shuts
In'lBo.me such, manner the pleader for

culty is that we nave not vet learned the
relative meaning of Ignorance and knowl
edge. We dq not teach the right things
and we da pot get the best results. We
use examinations as gas-tnir lines, but our
percentages do not show true values. We
get bits of information and progressive

of all sorts and nationalities: some well

In which the teachers are examined with

In the Cause of Science.
A man went down from Paris to
Autenil a few weeks ago. and, hiring a
room in a secluded port of the city, shut
himself np in it with a quantity of provi
sions. He stuffed the keyholes with
paper, pasted paper ove the window
panes, and in other wayr manifested a
desire for secrecy. After he had remained
there several days the inhabitants told
the police about him and the doors were
burst In. It was then found that be was

IIuw much "of your income do you
have to pay for offleo rent?" was asked, of
a well-to-do lawyer the other clay. Ills
rooms are on tho first floor baek of a Dia
mond street law building.
"Well," said he, "my partner and I
have three rooms, way back, as you
would call it, and have to nay for their
use the modest sum of $600 per year. I
feel sometimes that I'd rather be tho
owner of a large law building than be
an attorney with a big practice."
"You say your offices are in the rear;
what do the men in the front of the build
"Not nearly so much. You're surprised?
Well, no doubt; but what I say is right,
and I'll tell you why. Persons occupying
rooms in the rear of a building are will
ing to pay a little more than for front
rooms. This is because they are not an
noyed by habitual office loafers, of whom
there are many; then the man who runs
in 'just to write a note,' as he says, or
wants to use your desk a minute,' is un
known. Fakirs don't find you in the
recesses of your rooms, and the ncise and
rumble of wagons aud street life do not
annoy you. These are a few reasons why
back offices are preferable and command a
higher rate of rent." Pittr.bv.rj LM:
The Italian' Ugly "Weapon.
A knife, commonly carried and fre
quently used by criminal Italians, is what
Professor Seannapieco, the Neapolitan
fencing master, calls tho "molletta." The
molletta bears some resemblanco to a
razor, though considerably longer. There
is only one edge, and the blade opens like
a penknife It swings loose, however,
ana when drawn is opened by catching
hold of the handle with the fingers and
throwing the blade outward. This re
quires practice and dexterity. A small
spring catches the knife and holds it
open- It is closed by pressure upon a
tiny "button" on the handle. Though
not as effective a weapon as the stiletto,
it makes an ugly wound when used by an
expert, and can be opened almost as
quickly as a stiletto can be drawn from
its sheath. The ease with which it can
be concealed adds to the frequency of its
use. The handle Is hard wood or bone.
