THE PEACE OATH.
There was short shrift for Red Ja
son He was tried, by the court near
est the spot, and that was the criminal
court over which the Bishop la his
civil capacity presided, with nine of
his neighbors on the bench beside him.
From this court an appeal was pos
sible to the Court of the Quarter, and
again from the Quarter Court to the
High Court of Althing; but appeal In
this case there was none, for there was
no denfence. And because Icelandic
law did not allow of the imprisonment
of a criminal until after he had been
sentenced, an Inquest was called forth

the room about midway, and In the

the spectators were crowded together.
Th nlace was lighted by candles, and
some were fixed to the" walls, othefs
were held by ushers on the end of long
sticks, and a few were hung to the
roof rafters by hemp ropes tieo aooui

"Although steel wool has only been
used as a substitute for sandpaper dur

extensively used for polishing purpos

States," aald a wholesale dealer ln the
material to the writer recently. "Steel
wool is an article of regular manufac
ture and It Is put up ln one-pound pack

coarser than the coarsest of natural
wools. The superiority of steel wool
over the ordinary sandpaper consists
In Its great pliability, which enables a
worker to polish or smooth down ir

with steel wool far better and much
more expeditiously than with sand
