Freak's of nature are to ha pitied by
all persons not entirely devoid of human
Some of course are located differently
from others and dillerent decrees of se
verity are manifest. 'There is the de
formaties of the hotly that may afflict
one person with a weak or misprepor-
tioned back, others there are whose
arms, legs or hands mid lingers are hor-
ril ly c rocked and unsightly. Some poor
ui f rtnnatesare 1 1'nd and others deaf
hut these are all disutilities of the body
and are not to be compared with the nat
ural or acqnired defects of the mind.
When we see a person with such an
unfortunate mental deformity that they
are unable to tell the truth even when it
would !e to their own best interests to
do so ay! cannot even discern the truth
when it is plainly presented, we can only
gaze in wonder a), natures curious de
formity wh'le our synipnhetc feeling,,
nr. lio'.vcd imd meekly extended to one
so greatly ulllicted.
We have in our mind's eye a certain
Jiidge(?) who is ro alllicted ar.d from the
massiveness of his dist ase we are led to

igin such an exalted degree of perfection
us he seems to possess could hardly have

Poor Judge: our heartfelt sympathy is
extended to one upon whom nature has
lavished affliction with such unmerciful
abundance. What must it be f 3
through life endowed with this malady?
To think that when he would ppeak the
truth and really tries to do so, only the
opposite comes forth and is scattered
broadcast to wound the poor sufferers
feelings and those of spmpathetic friends
who are as powerless as he to prevent
thin' mental deformity.
I oes that same seemingly unkind na
ture endow a disposition to enjoy the
fruits of his own unfortunateness? f not,
then to what d ptii of despondency must
the poor sulfert-r be precip'tited, pro
vided their feelings are of the same line
quality as others. Of course no one be
lieves anything such a person may say,
and they do not expect it, but friends
sii'mld look with pity and not scorn up
on t-ie sulfvrer of natures pecu iar.ty.
