ACTING SAVES LIVES.
COUNSEL FOR MURDERERS EMPLOY
How Lawyera AT ho Defend Criminal
Strive to Make an Irapreanlon on the
Sympathlea of Jurymen Some Notable
Caaea Where Lawyer Succeeded.
For years it has been generally known
among lawyers that all sorts of desper
ate and theatrical devices are constantly
resorted to in order to save the lives of
accused persons. But Mr. Welluian
was the first prosecutor to make the
charf a in open court and quote au in
stance to fortify his allegation.
Is the practice right or wrong?
Perhaps the most moving part of
Lawyer William F. Howe's elegant sum
ming up on behalf of Annie Walden
was where he besought the jurymen to
consider her youth, her beauty and her
When Francis L. Wellman, assistant
district attorney, began his summing up
for the prosecution, he urged the jurors
not to bo moved by his adversary's
emotional appeals. He called Mr. Howe
an actor. He said:
"If you had seen him, as I have, go
behind a woman defendant and pinch
her to make her scream and so arouse
sympathy, you would not be so much in
fluenced by his theatrical display."
"Whom did Mr. Howe pinch?.' I asked
"Ella Nelson," was his prompt reply.
"You recall that 6he had shot her lover
dead . because he was packing his trunk
and preparing to leave her. She was on
trial for her life. Mr. Howe got her ac
"When he had got to that part of his
summing up where he called . upon the
jury to 'look at her,' Ella was sitting be
hind a table, her face toward the jury,
but resting in her hands. She had been
weeping for some minutes, but now she
" 'Look at that facet' pleaded Mr.
Howe in impassioned tones. He strode
rapidly behind her. Again he cried,
'Look at that facet' and as he did so he
seized Ella's soft wrists in his strong
hand and wrenched her arms apart.
The. woman screamed with pain and
"That scream was enough to freeze
the blood of anybody who heard it. I
cannot help thinking that it had much
to do with the verdict.
"1 Uo net Bay that it is wrong for
counsel to employ theatrical methods in
defending their clients. I think it is
part of the duty of the prosecuting officer
to expose this sort of thing to the jury.
"Frederick B. House was defending a
man named Becker in the general ses
sions. - Becker had a clothing store in
Baxter street. He arranged a candle so
that when it burned down to a cei tain
point at midnight it would set fire to a
lot of bagging soaked with kerosene,
and so burn the 6tore and earn Becker a
big amount of insurance. Firemen
quenched the flames and so saved the
lives of 6eventy-six men, women and
children who were sleeping in the tene
ments above the store.
"When Mr. House summed up he
was in a quandary. Becker couldn't
understand one word in English, there
fore how could! the poor devil weep at
the proper moment? That little diffi
culty was solved all right. Becker rested
his face in his hands and peeped through
his interlaced fingers at his eloquent de
fender. " 'Think, gentleman,' said Mr. House,
if you 6end this wretched man to prison
you will punish those innocent little
ones.' At that instant Mr. House drop
ped his handkerchief.
" 'Wow!' came a shriek from Becker.
It began like the scream of a catamount.
It died away in a long drawn wail and
choking sobs. Becker's tears were like
a shower. Mrs. Becker's and the little
Beckers' tears were a cloudburst. Human
nature couldn't -6tand it. Juror No. 3
was a' nice old fellow, retired from busi
ness and living at home surrounded by
sons and daughters and chubby grand
children. He broke down at the second
drop of Fred House's handkerchief. At
the third drop of the cambric the juror's
fears gushed out beyond the railing.
Answering sniffles and gasps came from
twi other jurors.
"It seems hard to believe, but it is a
matter of record that in the face of the
clear evidence against Becker the jury
stood three for acquittal and nine for
conviction. The tears and howl3 and
the little Beckers saved the guilty man.
And in proof of his guilt let me add that
Becker was released under $2,500 bail,
but he ran away, although the case was
soon brought up for retrial.
"Often the question of makeup tests
the counsel stage manager's ability and
ingenuity. There was Alphonse Steph
ani, the young man who deliberately
murdered Lawyer Clinton G. Reynolds
for not surrendering Stephani's father's
estate fast enough to be squandered. The
defense was insanity.
"Perhaps you recall the Stephani who
came to trial. Instead of the handsome,
neatly dressed rich man's son, the jury
saw a wild, unkempt creature, a Caliban
in ugliness. Stephani's hair had been
untouched by shears or brush for months.
He had not bathed or shaved. He still
wore the clothes he had on when
rested. His linen wa- iatters-anj
almost hlacjc. nis outer garments were
greasy and crusted with accumulations
of spilled food. Stephani was a good
actor. Not a word did he speak to any
one. With large black eyes, as deep
and mournful as Edwin Booth's, he
model of painty t'Mie mm. uiiere was
more or U-hh testimony to show that
Stephani had fallen oil a jniiiy very
many years ao ami hurt his head, and
that he had always been hih tempered,
like any spoiled child. No urns had
bothered about his alleged insanity,
though, until after ho hud killed hid
father's old friend.
."'Insane,' was the jury's judgment
after listening to the testimony and
watching the gloomy makeup of the
prisoner. They found him guilty of
murder in the second degree, and he was
sent to prison for life. Today he is a
neat, well behaved and short haired con
vict. New York Herald.
COOPER AND WORDSWORTH.
An Interview Trlili the Agrd Poet 1V
Yeur Itefore Ilia Ieatli. '
Thoinas Cooper, tho veteran chartist,
who has received a grant of '200 from the
Civil List, had, on one occasion, a very
interesting interview with Wordsworth
at Rydul Mount. Cooper had been at
Carlisle and started on a walk through
the Lake country.
It was on the third day after leaving
Carlisle that Cooper arrived at Rydal
Lake. He was very anxious to see
Wordsworth and have a talk with him,
but, not knowing the poet and having
no introduction, was rather doubtful as
to what the nature of his reception might
be. Bnt, summoning all the courage at
his command, he boldly strode up to the
poet's door and knocked.
In reply to an inquiry he was told that
Wordswortli was at home; so he wrote
on a slip of paper, "Thomas Cooper,
author of 'The Purgatory of Suicides,'
desires to pay his devout regards to
Wordsworth." In a very few minutes
he was in the presence of the "majestic
old man," and was bowing with deep
and heartfelt homage when Wordsworth
seized his hand and welcomed him with
such a hearty "How do you do? I am
very happy to see you," that Cooper says
the tears stood in his eyes for joy.
Nothing struck Cooper so much in
Wordsworth's conversation as his re
mark concerning chartism after the
subject of Cooper's iinpiisonment had
been touched upon. "You were right,"
Wordsworth said; "I have alwavs said
the people were right in what they asked;
but you went the wrong way to get it.
There is nothing unreasonable in your
charter. It is the foolish attempt at
physical force for which many of you
have been blamable." By and by the
conversation drifted to other subjects.
rri - j
mere was out one occasion, says
Cooper, on which I discerned the feeling
of jealousy in him; it was when I men
tioned Byron. "If there were time," he
said, "1 could show you how Lord
Byron was not so great a poet as you
think him to be but never mind that
now." I had just been classing his own
sonnets and "Childe Harold" together
as the noblest poetry since "Paradise
Lost," but did not reassert what I said.
"I am pleased to find," he said, while
talking about Byron, "that you preserve
your muse chaste and free from rank
and corrupt passion. Lord Byron de
graded poetry m that respect. Men's
hearts are bad enough. Poetry should
refine and purify their natures, not
make them worse.
Wordsworth's opinion on Tennyson is
interesting. Cooper asked the poet what
his opinion was of the poetry of the day:
"There is little that can be called high
poetry," Wordsworth said. "Mr. Ten
nyson affords the richest promise. He
will do great things j-et, and ought to
have done great things by this time." -"His
sense of music," I observed,
"seems more perfect than that of any of
the new race of poets."
"Yes," Wordsworth replied; "the per
ception of harmony lies in the very es
sence of the poet s nature, and Mr. Ten
nyson gives magnificent proofs that he
is endowed with it."
Wordsworth spoke of Southey in the
highest terms, and again reverted to
politics. '.'There will be great changes
on the Continent," he said, "when the
present king of the French dies, but
not while he lives. The different gov
ernments will have to give constitutions
to their people, for knowledge is spread
ing, and constitutional liberty is sure to
follow." Wordsworth also alluded to
the spread of freedom in England, and
descanted with animation on the growth
of mechanics' and similar institutions.
"The people are sure to have the fran
chise," he said with emphasis, "as knowl
edge increases; but you will not get all
you seek at once, and you must, never
seek it again by physical force," he
added, turning to me with a smile; "it
will only make you longer about it."

Falling from a Great Height.
It will be remembered that Mr.
Whymper, who had a severe succession
of falls once in the Alps, without losing
his consciousness, declares emphatically
that as he bounded from one rock to an
other he felt absolutely no pain. The
same thing happens on the battlefield;
the entrance of the bullet into the body
is not felt, and it is not till he feels the
blood flowing or a limb paralyzed that
the soldier knows he is wounded.
Persons who have had several limbs
broken by a fall do not know which limb
is broken till they try to rise. At the
moment of a fall he whole """'uai
activity ia 1-ased to an extraordinary
degree. There is not a trace of anxiety.
One considers quickly what will happen.
This is by no means the consequence of
"presence of mind," it is rather the
product of absolute necessity. A solemn
composure takes possession of the vic
tim. Death by fall is a beautiful one.
Great thoughts fill the victim's soul:
they ran painlessly into a great bine sky.
Tea In Cunlimere.
There are two ways of preparing tea
in Cashmere. The first is to put the tea
in a pot with cold water and loil it for
half an hour, when more cold water is
added, after which it is boiled for
another half hour. Milk is then added
and it is ready for drinking. The second
is to place the tea in a pot with a little
soda and water, and boil it for half an
hour as before. Milk, salt and butter
aro then added, after which it is boiled
for another half hour, when it is ready.

"Next to pork," says a physician, "the
banana is the most indigestible thing a
person can eat, and if you will notice
you will see them touched very sparingly
by ieoplo with weak stomachs. If you
can digest them, however, and don't
mind the offensive odor, they are very
nourishing and one can make a meal on
them that is in every way equal to a
substantial lunch of bread and meat."

A Siglit In s Graveyard.
Two visitors to Trinity churchyard, in
lower Broadway, attracted a large share
of public attention Wednesday after
noon. One was a well dressed blind
man and the other was a boy of sixteen
or eighteen years of age, probably a rel
ative of the blind man. The boy led hi9
sightless companion to the grass bor
dered slab that bears the name of Char
lotte Temple. Dropping on his knees at
the side of the grave the blind man
passed his hands eagerly over the face
of the stone and an expression of su
preme gratification came into his coun
tenance when his fingers touched the
sunken letters of the name. The boy
called his attention to that part of the
slab from which all of the original in
scription except the name is said to have
There is a hollow place there at least
inches deep. It forms a basin to catch
water for the birds to drink and bathe
in. It was nearly full of water on
Wednesday afternoon, and the blind
man dabbled in the little pool gently.
He hovered over the grave for several
minutes, and became an object of curi
ous interest to at least a hundred per
sons who stood on the sidewalk and
watched him through the fence. New
If the portrait of some grandam who

spite of the topheaviness of the old ship

Turtle eggs are an acquired taste with
most people, although they are not so
with bears. They have a rough, yellow
yolk and a white like any other eggs,
but you can cook them for a year and
the white part will remain liquid. No
tice a curious dimple in the side of each
one. If you squeeze it out the dimple
appears on the other side, and you can
never get hold of a turtle egg which
