A good atory In told of n Mln who wa
noted for her wit. At a dinner party the
lady In question, Hut daughter of a distin
guished Judge, was seated next to a gen
tleman whom slut had not met before, who
wn visiting the city on business which
had brought him in contact wit h the Judge
mentioned, who had a short, time previous
ly decided a case against him.
At the dinner the gentleman, who lind
not caught tho name of the lady when in
troduced, took occasion to vent his feeling
and express hi opinion of the Judge in
term anything but complimentary.
An awful pause in the conversation in
dicated something wrong, and the gentle
man at one expressed to the lady hi hope
that tha judge waa no relative of here, to
which, to tha Infinite amusement of all
present, aha replied:
"Oh, no, Only a connection of my
mother' by marriage!"
A about of laughter could not be pre
vented, and the gentleman, after a little
reflection, came alowly to tha conclusion
that tha judge' family were altogether
"too much" for hlru, 1mdon Tlt-Hlta.
