The sanctity of a jury room appears
to be so well guarded that even in case
of sudden sickness a physician may not
enter except after due process of law.
hi the Eoss will case, tried recently in
Boston, the jury were deliberating,
when late one evening one of them was
suddenly attacked with what proved to
be a stroke of apoplexy. The ollicer in
charge notified the deputy sheriff, who
not having authority to let any ono in
to the jury room, drove across tho city
and informed the sheriff, but even this
oflicial was not high enough to act, and
another expedition started in search of
the judge. As the latter happened to
be -at home, the requisite order was ob

Tht) rush of tourists to Florida in
creases every winter, and so much
shooting, every man nearly takes his
gun, is rapidly diminishing the game
all through the country.
The time was, and only a few years
ago, when every bay and lagoon was
teeming with birds, but when the
fashion demanded that every woman's
bonnet should be decorated with some
kind of a bird or its feathers, men were
sent to Flordia to procure them
and one expedition returned it is said,
with 100,000 bird-skins, shot during the
winter. Such destruction is now felt
and althoug the authorities have now
prohipited the slaughter, it is like

On the Apalachicola river wild tur
keys and ducks are shot wantonly
from the decks of the steamboats and
alligators all along the banks come in
for a fusilade from the titles of the
passengers. On my recent trip on
this river I saw numbers of turkeys
shot as they were running along the
banks, that were of course wasted as
the boat could not stop to pick them
up; and every flock of the ducks that
rose was fired into killing or maiming
wore or less 01 mem.
Sot only on by the ground of wanton
cruelty should the owners of these
boats prohibit the use of fire-arms but
it is a great annoyance to many pas
sengers to have rifles and shotguns
banging away around them, to say
nothing of the danger to life from the
careless use of guns by mere boys, as
some of them were.
It is a theme the Forest and Streams
migb .properly bring to the notice of
the proper authorities (the owners of
the steamers) in the cause and enter a
protest against such wanton destruction
of such rare game as the turkey, as well
as every other bird coming in for
slaughter, as is now the tase on the
river boats on the Southern rivers.

It ic ll Men and lc Water.
Tha question of purity of drinking
water has invaded the business office.
Rich men who are vexed by slight
physical ailments or who are the victims
of nervous troubles find it the easiest
thing imaginable to believe that there
is danger in the water cooler. Many
of them have their Croton boiled and
chilled by refrigeration before they will
drink it. Others have in their private
oflices jars of mild mineral waters, from
which they quench their thirst.
Cliauncey M. Dejiew is one of the latter
kind. He does not believe in drinking
ice water, and is very particular about
having the water that he drinks per

Three little dirty, half clad girls
made a brief sensation on upper Broad
way the eoldest day recently. The
eldest was not more than eight, and
her companions might have been six
and seven respectively. The eight
year-old carried a faded, rib rotton
parasol that had once been pa'.e blue
and her companions were trying to
squeeze their heads under it' while
they carried the rear of their dresses in
one hand, as ladies manipulate their
trains at a muddy crossing.
The eldest divided her attention be
tween the proper angle for the parasol
and getting her littl skirt down low
euotigh to touch the sidewalk, which
she occasionally accomplished by
stooping. Three pairs of feet were
visible through the dilapidated shoes
and the shabby old July hats wouldn't

years, and the pleasantest remem
brances 1 have of those far away
times are of the bedtime hours, when
my mother sat by her beds in that low
roofed chamber and taught us the
songs she sung as a child,
told stories, some of w hich were of her
childhood, while others were conjured
up in her own head.
Some of the sweetest hymns and
sacred stories I learned then, and there

only reason that the darkness had no

CoftVe in the Knt.
How long coffee was in use among
eastern nations before being introduced
'nto Europe is not known. Aljeziri Al
hambali, a noted Arabic author, states
that it was lirst made known about 870
of the Hegira, and so quickly did cof
fee houses and booths multiply through
out Arabia that the government several
times made strenuous attempts to sup
press them, fearing they would lead
the people into idleness.
Notwithstanding these efforts, the
"coffee habit" took such a firm hold on
the people that the beverage was made
and drank in secret. They even went
long distance into the desert and there
prepared the seductive concoction with
out fear of molestation.
home pious Mohammedans thought
it might be included among the intoxi
cating beverages forbidden by the
Koran, but Alhambali, in an able
pamphlet entitled "The Support of
Innocence," proved that it was not in
the prohibitory section of that book.
As a consequence the followers of the
prophet once more returned to the de
lights of coffee Detroit Free Press.

who wore a hat too small, perched upon

assert as a positive and invariable fact
that, save in cases of dire necessity,
such as shipwrecks or utter and hope

too small for him is a silly frivolous,
conceited creature, with no serious
