tfter tho adjournment of the tTniteil
Mates court at Danville, Va., recently,
there wasa little scene which was not (in
the docket. A ono armed old Confederal o
had been found guilty of illegal distill
ing and was sentenced to one month's
imprisonment and a fino of 100. Jink's
John Paul, who was also an old Confed
erate, ordered the marshal to bring Gar

into the courtroom. Presently tha
judge and prisoner stood face to face.

said: "Come back here tomorrow and I
