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. ' * HE TRICKED JAY GOULD. 5" How Jim risk Checked Out the tittle 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 Mansfield. 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 bonbons. His Conversational Effort. Ho did not know much about pictures , and when she spoke of a girl friend's achievements with a brush he was a little at sea. He said "Yes" and "No" ] with reasonable accuracy until she ; happened to say : * ' ' I to 'What am especially disposed praise is her coloring. " "Her coloring ! " ho echoed with alac rity. "It's superb ! You know I always ! did admire blonds. " Washington Star. i s * FOR STARTING THE FIRE. 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. Delicious English Muffins.

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 WHAT TO DO. 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 The mild and the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands the I highest for its wonderful cures of the most t : distressing cases. If you need a medicine you . should have the best. Sold by druggists.price ; fifty cents and one dollar.
