Albany Argns. Webitr'( Inrom. The legal piofettMon of the present day will be surprised to learn that Mr. Weli eter, the greatest American lawyer of his time, made bnt tl3.(XX) a year by his practice. But tlie fees of counsel be tween 1840 and lii0 were not what they have been sines. In 1WS I accompanied a client to Mr. Webster's office in Boston and j-ked him to name a retaining fee in an im portant patent case. He said he thought a conple of hundred dollars would do. When the case was tried his fee was only 1 1,000. On another occasion I paid him a retaining fee of $J.0o0 for the proprie tors of the Uoodyear india rubber pat ent His fee for arguing the great equity cause cf (ioodyeur verns Day in the cir cnit court of the United States for the district of New Jersey, by which he es tablished the validity of the Goodyear patent, was j,000. This was in the spring of W2. and was the hut case he ever argued. His professional income from to II'.'S. during which prind he was out of congress, averaged, I think, f.'O.OoO a year. Cor.

From notes made upon Sacs and Foxes painted for the dance we will give bnt one or two esses. One man's f.v was painted black, except around the eyes stid month, which were scarlet. Upon bis forehead was a Deat checkered pattern of yellow on the black back ground. Another's face was divided by vertical line in two part one ol which was a bright yellow, the other an equally bright green. Popular Bcience .Monthly. Prolonging h Tonilo Bnwl. The fact that the tomato will ripen fairly after pint kin 4 enables the sontli ern grower to market hit crop in the far north. It alo allows ns here to prolong the season of the natives. Well grown but green fruit, picked before frost Into ahallow baskets or tunes, and kept In a dark, dry room, ripens gradually for the table and may thus be eaten, often entil November or later.

I hf illness. men a practice their ideas of hoii the battlefield If- tlft. defeated did not wish to fall alive iiro tliu hands of ths euemy, they thrust their swords into their mouths or their breasts or crt their own throats Later tiie hara-kiri became an institution of honor. Who ever knew his cause to be lost either ex ecuted himself with bis sword or allowed his companions to do it for him. It often happened that when a feudal lord had performed bis self execution his vas sals followed his example to show their loyalty beyond the grave. BIB Mr.HOBY CNETAINED. My mother, who was a Japanese of rank, ofien related to me a case of hara kiri which took place not so many years ago in lier on family The noMe-nn, occupyingagovernineiitoffice, bad killed bis bitterest enemy and was sentenced to the hara-kiri. If be bad not belonged to the caste of warriors they would either bave beheaded nun or sentenced him to be nailed to the cross, which would have brought dishonor on his family, besides resulting in pecuniary disadvantages The bara-kirt. however, attached no dis honor to him or his mejnory. The con demned man was committed to the sur veillance of a nobleman in whose man sion the solemn self execution was to take place. Day and hour were a) pointed, and the witnesses elected by the government arrived Thecoudernned man had bgg"d three of bis friends to render him the last service and they con sented Subordinates called on the prisouer to tetl him of the arrival of the witnesses. They brought bun robes of hemp on tray. Ue donned them quickly and bnr ned to the reception room of the palace, where the sentence of death was read to hint. The prisoner listened to it without moving a featurn. Then be retired once more to his chamber to change his dress for the last tuna Attired in white robes, be was led by a solemn procession to the room wbeie the self execution was to take place. A large cotton cloth was spread on the mats. Over this a scarlet quilt was laid to prevent the blood from oozing through the mats. It was al ready dark and a candelabrum, giving a faint light, was placed in each comer Behind two while screens a pail, a wash basin, a censor, a tray and a short sword lay hidden. According to prevailing rules, the persons present stepped Into the semidark room and took their places. Then the duties of the three assistants of the pnsouer began. The Brt brought him the sword on a short legtrod table, the hilt being wrapjKrd in paper. The prisoner received the weapon with rever ence, lifting it with both hands to bis forehead to expn-ss his esteem. Then he Imd it back on the table and bowed to all present. He let his npper garments fall down to the lit-it. and -tnflod them Dimly siidcr hi knees to prevent him from falling backward, which is looked on as a disgrace. Then, while with a firm band be seied the sword, and with a quick movement cut np his stomach, the second assistant, who stood on bis left side, with one fierce blow severed the bead from the trunk. Alter render ing his fne nd thm terrible service he re tired behind the screer.s, drew some white paper (rum ms belt and wiM.d the weapou The. third assistant then grasped the head by the tuft of hair and presented it to tne principal government witness to show that justice bsd been fully satisfied This was followed by deep silence. All present retired quietly On the floor lay the body of the noble man. Four servants appeared ami ear ned away the body and cleaned Uie room. The memory of the nobiemau remained unsiaiueu. He l.zA remsiscd ioysJ ! ' rank in death. OT FOB THE MIOOIK. in 1869 a private secretary to the privy council proposed the abolition of the hara-kiri Two-thirds of the depnties were against the proposition, and in the spmchea bold on that occasion they praised the institution as Indispensabie to preserve the honor of the aristocracy, and as a spur to morality and religion. The man who advanced the proposition was, as was expected, murdered not long afterward. Of course all Japanese do not share the opinion of those deputies. In the last change of government when the shogun, completely defeated, had no other alternative than to flee to Yeddo, one of his councilors advised nun to have recourse to the bari-kiri aa ths last means of saving bis honor and that of bis family The shogun ridiculed the advice and left the room in a rage. The faithful councilor retired to an other part of the palace aud disetu bowled himself in proof of bis earnest ness. The slfogun U still living and en Joys a fat income. So much about the essential charac teristics of the bari-kiri. The changii which this old national custom has nn der:;on cause the particulars concern ing it to be somewhat contradictory, by the introduction of a new code of laws, the bari-kiri has been abolished ajidoiily noblemen, who still believe In the tra ditions! code of honor of their ancestors, may select it as a mode of death.
