PIONEER COURT INCIDENTS.
Frco and Easy Manncro In Early Illi
Most of the early Illinois court
houses were log built, but in some dis
tricts, says the author of "Lincoln, the
Lawyer," the sessions were held In the
barrooms of taverns, and the absence
of all formality In the proceedings Is
best Illustrated by the fact that In the
circuit court of "Washington county,
held by Judge John .Reynolds, the sher
iff usually heralded his honor by sing
ing out, "Come In, hoys! Our John Is
a-goln' to hold court!" to which cordial
Invitation those having business with
tho law responded.
Another sheriff In Union county made ,
laudable efforts to meet tho require- .
meats of the occasion by shouting out '
this singular announcement: "Oh, yes!
Oh, yes! Oh, yes! The honorable Judge
Is now opened!" '
In one case u Judge who desired to
display his learning Instructed the jury '
very fully, laying down the law with
authority, but tho Jurors, after dollb-1
orating some hours, found themselves
unable to agree. Finally the foreman
rose and asked for additional Instruc
tions. "Judge, this 'ere Is the difficulty," ho
explained. "The jury want to know if
that tlinr what you told us was r'al'y
tho law, or on'y Jlst your notion."
Mark Twain on His Own Reputation
I am used to having my statement
discounted. My mother began It before
I was seven years old. Yet all through
my life my facts have had a substra
tum of tnvth, and therefore thoy woro
not without preclousness. Any person
who is familiar with me knows how to
strike my uvorage and therefore knows
how to get at the Jewel of any fact of
mine and dig it out of Its blue clay
matrix. My mother knew that art.
When I was seven or eight or ten or
twelve years old along there a neigh
bor said to her:
"Do you ever boliovo anything that
that boy says?"
My mother said:
"He is tho wellsprlng of truth, but
you can't bring up the Avholo well with
ono bucket." And she added: "I know
his average, therefore he never de
ceives mo. I discount him .'10 per cent
for embroidery, and what is left Is
perfect nnd priceless truth without a
Haw iu it anywhere." Mark Twain's
Autobiography in North American Re
view. Tho Fignting Lemming.
If tho lemming's powers were pro
portioned to his pluck, tho lemming
would make things lively for tho
hunter. It attacks with reckless fury
tho harmless passerby. One of theso"
creatures, smaller than aj-at, will as
sail without a socoud thought a couplo
of human beings weighing 130 pounds
apiece. It will spring to one's knees,
barking and biting, and In purblind
fury fall back "all ends up" to tho
earth, only to renew tho attack again
and again. Ono day while ono lem
