They Are Expensive , and the lawyers De-
k , J tnand Bis Fees and Retainers.
JL In England there are many fees to bo
I- , . , paid by the unhappy client of a lawyer
m _ f that are unknown hero in America.
| | V There is a retaining fee , which is a
| F _ guinea , and a half crown to the clerk ,
K" * besides the brief fee , which is more im-
| a portant. Then there is the "refresher"
Ip. ' of the leader and the "refreshers" of
IK. the subordiaato lawyers. In England
| | / ( the leader's refreshment , which is due
ip after five hours , the brief fee being sup-
fev posed to cover only the getting up of the
W' . case , is 10 guineas , or a little over $50 ,
11 while $25 must bo paid to the lesser
Wf\ \ lawyers.
wk According to English etiquette , no
R counsel can lcavo his circuit to plead in
mf another without a special retainer ,
We ' which , in most cases , cannot bo less
Rjp than 800 guineas. This is probably to
W discourage ' 'poaching. "
f A would be client ouco wrote to a
| & * famous American lawyer , stating a case
! r * for his opinion and inclosing a $20
, w note. The lawyer did not reply , where-
feg upon the client wrote a second letter
It , aud received word from the lawyer that
B&- he had read the case and formed an opin-
Ejs . ion , but somehow it stuck in his throat.
Kv. The client took the hint and sent a $100
fpu' note , rcceiviug the lawyer's opinion by
| | ' the next mail.
R. * Nobodj * does anything for nothing ,
E ; especially a lawyer. Lord Mansfield
IF , was so sensible of this that on one occa-
E sion , when he had attended to some legal
* business for himself he took
p , some guin-
W i eas out of his pmso and put them in
p „ his waistcoat pocket to give him the
sh necessary stimulus. Sir Anthony Map -
p : ' ' lone , , an Irish attorney general , was so
jks- imprudent as to forget this fact and was
| f' grievously punished for it , for he was
p so inattentive to some property of his
L1 that ho lost $15,000 a year by it , and
Z in the future ho required his clerk to
! • - make abstract deeds of any property _ he
% , ' might buy and lay them before him ,
. with a fee of 5 guineas , properly indors-
f t ed , which the clerk was to scrupulously
* account for , after which Sir Anthony
- ( , made no more mistakes in regard to his
! own property. Chicago News. '

Mau' Iiank Account.
Gould kept a balance of some $30,000
in the Tenth National bank for his personal -
; sonal account , household expenses , etc.
Being called west on a mission that
lasted several weeks , he left his check
book locked in the safe drawer , to which
Fisk had a key. In the office was a
clever young clerk whomFisk had
caught in the act of imitating his and
Gould's signatures , the imitation of
Gould's being a facsimile. Within an
hour after the wizard's departure check
book and clerk were together under
Fisk's supervision , and at his instiga
tion more than a dozen blank checks
weie signed with the name of Jay
Gould , and in the course of a .month
the $30,000 had disappeared , Fisk be
ing at that time in the clutches of Josie
I On the very day of Gould's return
[ " * the bank sent a notice of overdraft. The
little man nearly fainted. He had several -
| eral fits. His excitement was intense.
Ho declared that there was a conspiracy
to ruin him. He hastened to the bank ,
k and they showed him the checks , signed
| by himself they did not doubt , and he
raved and tore his hair. Nor could he
doubt the signature. It was genuine ,
even in his own eyes. A rigid investiga
tion was started , which Fisk put an
end to by informing Gould , with many
a poke in the ribs , that he had drawn
and used the money.
"Did Fisk make good ? " an innocent
asked when the story was told.
"Return the $30,000 ? " was the reply.
"If Fisk had returned it , Wall street
would have cried. " New York Press.
Channel Island Despotism.
It is not generally known that some
thing approaching a military despotism
.prevails in the Channel islands. Every
-male adult born in Guernsey or Jersey
1 has to serve for a long term of years in
'the militia , 15 years being the period
in Guernsey.
In addition to this , all males of 32
.years of age and under , of whatever na
tionality , who reside in that island for
• a year and a day continuously have to
'enter the militia and serve for 15 years ,
or suffer fine , imprisonment or expul
sion ,
During the last two or three years a
great number of young Englishmen
have settled in Guernsey to go into the
tomato raising industry.
In order to avoid the military service
imposed by the "states" as the gov-
eminent of Guernsey is called they
make frequent trips outside their juris
diction either to England or to Jersey
the last named having a government
independent of the rest of the Channel
islands. London Letter.
I She Got Left.
Some time ago the queen of Italy
asked a little girl to knit her a pair of
silk mittens for her birthday , giving
her the money for the material. A pair
of beautifully worked mittens arrived
on the queen's birthday. The little girl
received in return another pair. One
mitten contained lire , the other bon
bons. Queen Marguerite inclosed a lit
tle note saying , "Tell me , my dear
child , which you like best" The reply
ran as follows :
DjiiitEST Qiteex Your lovely presents have
nindo zuo shed many tears. Papa took the
mitten with the money. My brother had the

The Use to Which the Fisherman Pnts HU
Discarded Nets.
Ill the majority of households an old
newspaper is the material most com
monly used to start a fire , and the ad
justment of this material is a matter of
considerable art There should bo enough
of it to make a flame sufficient to ignite
the wood laid upon it , and it should be
put in with just the right degree of i
looseness so that the air will circulate i
through it and make it burn freely and
to the best advantage. But there are
houses in which paper is never used for
this purpose the homes of fishermen.
Here , year in and year out , day after
day , the fire is started with a chunk of
discarded tarred netting , and there is
nothing like it.
When a not gets tender , so that it is
likely to burst when a body of kelp or
seaweed floats against it in a tide way ,
or to break with a big catch of fish , it
is condemned. It may be whole and
look all right , but it doesn't pay to take
any risks with it. Some fishermen using
a considerable number of nets may have
half a ton of such netting in. a year.
They use it to start fires , and give away
some of it. Formerly they sold it for
junk , and they do so now occasionally ,
though -not so much as they did. It
brings a cent a pound.
This netting has been tarred again
and again with fine , thin tar and it is ; i
thoroughly saturated. The not may be
6 feet deep. A length of it is rolled up ,
and the roll is then flattened down. The
flattened roll may be G inches wide , and
it is cut off with an ax into chunks of
perhaps a foot in length , just enough to
lie nicely on the grate of a kitchen
range. It is thoroughly dried before it
is used. It all ignites quickly , and
burns fiercely and uniformly , with a
bluish flame and rather a pleasant odor.
A properly laid fire with a section of
old tarred netting to start it never goes
out. Whoever attends to the kitchen
fire in the fisherman's house prepares it ,
if possible , the night before and pulls a
strand from the tarred netting out
through the bars of the grate in front.
To start the fire in the morning all that
is necessary is to touch a lighted match
to the end of that tarred rope yarn.
Some of this tarred netting has been
sold to start the fire in locomotives.
Such a.thing is not unheard of as the
use of cotton waste and oil for this pur
pose , but a sheet of old tarred netting
laid over the grate bars beats the cotton
waste out of sight. Still , locomotives
have multiplied and tarred netting cuts
no figure as a means of starting the fire
in them. It is perhaps now used for
that purpose , if at all , only on roads
running through or near fishing dis-
tricts. And , as said , it is now rarely
sold. The fisherman uses it to start his
own fire , and the man who has more
than he wants gives to his neighbor.
New York Sun.
A Costly Joke.
A Berlin correspondent tells as true
a story about a joke that resulted some
what seriously for the man who invent
ed it. This person was incredulous
about the discriminating appreciation
of wines which a distinguished friend
of his claimed to possess , and to test
the matter invited him to dine at a ho
tel whose landlord had previously been
instructed to set before the connoisseur
a bottle of excellent moselle. It was to
bear no label or other marks to distinguish -
guish it from "vin ordinaire , " and if
questioned the landlord was to say that
it cost only a small price. The invita
tion was accepted , and the plot was
carried out. The guest had hardly taken
a single sip from his glass , however , be
fore he proved the injustice of his host's
suspicion by exclaiming over the merit
of the wine. He summoned the landlord -
lord , and on hearing that its price was
3 marks instantly ordered 1,000 bottles
of the same vintage. The order was
filled , and the host , rather than reveal
the failure of his trick , paid the differ
ence between the alleged and real price ,
which amounted to something over
4,000 marks.
English lawyers.
In the United States the names ap
plied to lawyers are usually attorney
and counselor at law. In Great Britain
there are barristers at law , who are
counselors , learned in the laws , quali
fied and admitted to practice at the bar ;
solicitors ; , who are attorneys , advocates ;
or counselors at law , who are authorized
to practice in the English court of chan
eery i ; sergeants at law , who are lawyers
of the highest rank and answer to the
doctor i of the civil law. Only after 16 ,
years ; of practice at the bar can one become - i
como i a sergeant. Queen's counsel are t
eminent lawyers , who are given by the (
government , that title , and from their
number ; all the judges are chosen.

Basely Deceived.
"Yes , " she said bitterly , "I must
confess that he deceived me as to his
habits. " :
"Does he drink or gamble or any
thing of that kind ? " inquired the other.
"No. Before we were wed he led mete
to believe that he had a habit of talking
in his sleep about all his doings. And
he does not. " Indianapolis Journal.

Fill a bottle or common glass with urine and
let it stand twenty-four hours ; a sediment or E
settling indicates an unhealthy condition of the t
kidneys. When urine stains linen it is posi- t
tive evidence of kidney trouble. Too frequent
desire to urinate or pain in the back is also
convincing proof that the kidneys and bladder
are out of order. t
There is comfort in the knowledge so often r
expressed , that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root , the t
great kidney remedy , fulfils every wish in re
lieving pain in the back , kindeys , liver , blad
der and every part of the urinary passages. It 1
corrects inability to hold urine and scalding
Dain in passing it , or bad effects following use
of liquor , wine or beer , and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled to *
get up many times during the night to urinate. r

highest for its wonderful cures of the most t :
distressing cases. If you need a medicine you .
