A Startling Artjntnent.
Sometimes when sober facts fail to
convince a jury, a bit of good-natured
wit thrown into the argument will turn
the tables. Whether or not it won the
case in the following instance is not re
lated. Who can doubt, however, that
it had its effect.
In the course of the trial of a lawsuit
against a horse railway in New York,

ony toime that me learned frind, the
counsel for the opposition, had got a
franchise to run a liarsc railway down
mespoine, wid the privilege of using
me ribs for switches."
A member of a well known club in
London lost his umbrella in the club
and was resolved to draw attention to
the circumstance. He caused the fol

away an umbrella not his own on such
a date is requested to return it.'.'
The committee took umbrage at this
statement and summoned the member
who had composed it before them.
"Why, sir," they said, "should you
have supposed that a nobleman had
taken your umbrella?"
"Well," he replied, "the first article
in the club rules says that this club is

MAKES THE CAMEBA LIE
A NEW TRICK IN THE ART OF PHO
TOGRAPHY. The Instrument i Skilled Hmcli
Mav De Made to saoiv a. - ---
inrr on His Om
i-a Back or Glvlagr
Himself a Light.
A photograph showing a man in the
act of committing murder is very apt
to be accepted by a jury as co vincing
evidence of guilt. Such evidence has
many times been admitted as comp.
tout, and has gone far toward influ
encing verdicts. Yet, Hrm;astfa
remaikablv interesting set of pictur,
reproduced in the Idler, it has been
riiown convincingly that ohotography
will Mi a lie as read.lv as the truth.
This has been demonstrated in an in
genious manner. M. Gladstone, in a
speech in 1S00 made the statement that
a certain clergyman in Irjlard had
been shadowed by a counle of police
offices dressed in uuiforin. which fact.
he remarks, "stands in cvmencu, u
cause ir has been made the subject of
a photograph." In order to prove how
illogical was the conclusion of Mr.
Gladstone, namely, that a particular
event must have occurred because it
was so depicted in a photograph, a
certain photographer, skilled in the
mvsteries of his art. made a number of
photographs depicting events which
under no circumstances could possibly
have occurred. Going to tho very root
of the matter, says the St Louis Post-
Dispatch, he producea a nunuwuB
photograph, revealing the venerable
Mr. Gladstone himself comfortably
lounging before the door of one of the
toughest dives in Seven Dials, London.
Seven Dials is tougher than old Five
Points, New York city, was in its
palmiest days. Yet here is the G. O.
M. authentically represanted leaning
against a door post under a large
painted sign, which announces that al
coholic liquor may be had within.
That it Ls a complete photograph thero
can be no doubt, and. worst of all,
the venerable gentleman has every ap
pearance of posing for toe picture.
If such a photograph were offered to
a jurv of English Liberals as evidence
of the loose habits of the reverend pre
mier the jurors would scoff at it as an
impossibility, but they would, never
theless, feel uncomfortable.
Irvine Dancing 'Ta-ra-ra."

that this is true. Yet those who know
- . . :-4. nuld rather regard the
rhotograph as u mimntr mini accept
the conclusion it inevitably involves if
it is to be cousider-nl genuine.
A young man yielded to temptation
and took the opportunity of breaking
open his master's till. White thus en
gaged he saw the ghost of his mother.
It was a misty, transparent ghost,
clothed in white, and in every way a
perfectly reliable one. The voung man,
wishing to be able ro nrove what he
saw. called in the assistant of a pho
tographer, who produ-ed a picture
showing the ghost complete in every
detail. This. then, according to the
conclusion of Sir. Gladstone, is indis
putable proof that ghosts actually ex
ist, a fact which will undoubtedly be
encou.agiug to spiritualists.
The infallibility of photography in
evidence is apparent from a photo
graph showing a man in the act of
shooting another man across a table.
But the remarkable oiut about this
picture is the fact that the peisou doing
the shooting and the person shot are
one and the same. Here, then, is a re
production of an event which, accord
ing to the laws of physics, could not
have occurred. It is not possible for
one body to be in two iilaccs at the
same time. The only alternative is
either to deny the law of iuipcntrabil
ity, a law whicli has never been known
to fail, or to deny the evidence of the
How the IllaaioB la Prodaced.
The explanation of the manufacture
of the photographs is simple enough.
The plate on which a photograph is
taken is acted on by light. Consequently,-
if one part of the plate is covered
up while the rest is exposed, the part
that is covered up will rtveive no im
pression, and hence will be capable of
being acted upon by a subsequent ex
posure. In other words, the events,
Lottie Collin and Henry Irving-.
or situations, shown in a pho'igraph
have not necessarilv occurred at the
same time. Thus, in the photograph
of Mr. Gladstone, the part where the
head and body are to appear is cov
ered up at the first exposure and the
vest of the photograph is taken.
Then all except the space which was
covered up before is covered up and
on the reserved space thc head and
body of the eminent statesman is pho
tographed. The only difficulty is in
making the joining of the two parts
of the photograph so neatly that the
fraud will not be detected. The join
ing must not be a straicht line, but
a jagged one. which is far less easily
observed. The diaphanous appeararce
of the" ghost is due to the fact that
the lady who assumes that character
retires quickly before the exposure is
complete, but the rest of the picture
comes out in a normal wav.
The possibilities of this clever scheme
it will be seen are enormous. The
most absurdly ridicidous events and
situations may be depicted with appar
ent authenticity, and jurors. JfVthey
placed implicit: confidence In photo
graphs, might be made to believe al-
most anything. 'A man might be rep
resented engaged in animated conver
sation with a person he had never
seen. A photograph of this kind has
actually been "constructed." A man
is seen pointing a revolver at another,
who has a bullet hole In the fohead,
and looks for all the world as though
he had just been shot This would
probably be accepted as strong evi
dence of murder on the part of the
gentleman holding the revolver, where
as, in fact, he had never laid eyes
on the man he had apparently slain.
Similarly, a man has been shown giv
ing himself a ltebt from a cigarette,
telling himself a funny story, writing

Still it must not be too hastily con
cluded that photographs are absolute
ly unreliable iu a court of iustice. At
tendant circumstances may arise which
would go to show that the facts re
corded in the pictures are correct. A
photograph is not taken for granted
when produced in evidence. The pho
tographer may bo called to prove his
photograph and, if nceessiry, the nega
tives must be produced, in nhich lat
ter event it would be easv to detect the
patching. If, however, the photograph
er should bo dead or not to be found,
or the negatives should be destroyed,
it would be impossible to prove that
the photographs ware misrepresenta
tions. Tf admitted as evidence, the
judge in his charge would be obliged
to instruct the jury as to the general
reliability of evidence of this sort
and to explain what has been attempt
ed here the method by which the cam
era may be made to commit perjury,
so to speak. But, everything taken in
to consideration, the average juror
would be apt to believe what he saw
in a photograph far more readily than
he would the testimony of a witness
whose statements he had reason to
regard witu suspicion.
WOMEN AT A FIRE-
Anxious to Be of Service Tkey Are
Apt to Be Hysterical and lindens.
The acts of a woman in case of a Ore
nre unaccountable. Some people may
be unkind enough to remark that a wo
man's acts under all circumstances are
i naccountable and inexplicable, and in
the light of my own experience with
the sex I should be perfectly helpless to
controvert them. I could only oppose
the counter proposition that the behav
ior of the average man is generally in
explicable to anyone but himself and
probably if ho were called upon to give
a logical explanation of the reasons
that prompted him he would fall.
There was fire next door to a west

shouted fire in the hall, and every one
immediately lost his head. One corn

beside her door. There was no smell
of smoke and no blaze in sight, yet her
sister, clad also iu tow-colored hair and
a chemise, stood by wringing her hands
"Won't some one save Edith? Please
carry her. out doors; she will burn up."
"Oh, carry her into her room and
dress her!" exclaimed a level-headed
bystander. "The house is not on lire."
Another woman rushed down stairs
without stopping to dress, and was in
tercepted at the parlor door and sent
back. She was carefully carrying her
bonnet in one hand and a bottle of ink
in the other.
Upon one of the office benches, after
the excitement had begun to subside,
sat a young widow with two trunkfuls
of clothes piled around her and two
photographs of her poor, dear dead
husband in the other.
To be just to the sex, the women
wer not alone in displaying idiocy.
A man on the fourth floor tried to

and failed only because he had neglec

tell about the rustic huntsman on his

all the objects of interest in Baltimore
one by one, but gave each only a pass

word of comment. When he came in
sight of the Washington monument,
however, a new light shot from his
eye. At last it was obvious that some
thing had been found to interest him.
He scanned the shaft for seme min

the point, on which the statue stood
and back again, then fastened his gaze
on the crouching lion as if fascinated.

drew near to hear his criticisms of the

ODD WEDDING CUSTOMS.
Marriage In Wales Once Attended by
Until C&ite rectn date marriages
in the rural districts of Wales were at
tended by many curious circumstances.
When a wedding had been agreed
upon what were called "bidding pa
pers" were sent round to the friends
of the parties, which requested the fa
vor of the invited person's "very good
and most agreeable company," and it
was added, "whatever donation you
may be pleased to bestow on us will
be thankfully acknowledged and cheer
fully repaid whenever called lor on a
Ttis paper was signed by the betr.)th
td couple and a double postscript was
added on behalf of each asking for the
return of "all gifts of the above na
ture," together with additional favors.
On the day of the wedding it was the
custom of the bride to be hidden away
by her friends, and four or live repre
sentatives of the bridegroom woidd be
chosen to discover her place of conceal
ment, and bring her "fcrth. which was
often a matter of considerable dilli
cr.lty. Subsequently the friends of the bride
groom made an attack upon the escort
of the bride, and between the combat
ants the poor girl often got roughly
handled. But eventually she would ar
rive at the church and the ceremony
would be hurriedly gone through, after
which all the male friends would en
gage in a furious race back to the
bride's home, the victor being rewarded
with a pint of ale.
When the happy couple reached
homo they seated themselves at a ta
ble, each holding a plate for the recep
tion of the "bidding money." Later on
practical jokes were largely indulged
in, the newly married pair being the
Popular Stones for Jewelry.
Through all changes, when every
stone seems to have its day, the dia
mond stands alone, incomparable. In
these days stones are brought into

The One Original Gift.
When one hears of :i Washington
bride who has to find shelving for
thirteen dozen of decorated china plates
and thirty-three bon-bon dishes, one
wishes for a little more origirality on
the part of givers. A check is always
original. Needlework is coming in as
bridal gifts;hoose and table linen in
carved chests nothing could be more
welcome. But even this should not
be overdone. It is barely poss'ble to
have too many doylies and table cen-
count recently presented to his bride
not only an heirloom lace handker
chief, but a beautiful bedspread in
iinest cambric and costly lace. In the
middle of the spread was embroidered
the famly coat of arms Now a coun
terpane of the sort worked by the
bride's young friends would be a treas

linen cambric does last, for a lifetime,
A physician advises mothers to dis
card bangs even for their smallest
daughters, these very little girls being
the only ones whom fashion, at the
moment, permits to wear them. There
are, it seems, sensitive nerves about
the eye-brows which are weakened
when the hair is long enough to rest
upon them. These nerves directly con
cern the sight, and that important func
tion is more or less tampered with by
tills constant though slight weight ol
Another physician inveighs against
another practice, that of having night
lights in children's bedrooms. This he
pronounces very injurious. Instead of
allowing the optic nerves the perfect
rest afforded by darkness, the light
keeps them in perpetual stimulation,

and the rest of the nervous svstem to

in a costume which is .pre-eminently
worn for show. A quiet color in a re
fined fabric, simply made, is the only
suitable costume. Large hats are de
cidedly not the thing. A small close
bonnet for matrons, and a round hat or
toque, or turban for younger women,
are the correct styles approved by good
taste. Jewelry is in very bad form,
and so are very liidit and showy gloves.
It is not that religion should be re
garded as a thing of gloomy and som
ber character, but because one should
subordinate every consideration to that
of devotion to divine praise, prayer and
service; and a showy costume is out
of harmony with the quiet, saerod and
engrossing pleasures of the hour. Jen

Traveling dresses for the most part
are of hop sacking, mad with a short

was the one with the Klon jacket;

garcon de cafe, or just garcon. There
is a strong resemblance between the
two. but the latter is a trifle more

be discarded, but of course rulers of
fashion deemed it necessary to modify
it somewhat for a second season.

A Girl's Gloves. "
The writer in the St Louis Republic
whose sentiments follow may be draw
ing large conclusions from slight data,
but small things often speak more
loudly regarding character than the
thiugs commonly held more important
Just think of it a little, and it will
dawn upon you that a girl's gloves have
much to do with her reputation. The
average observer sizes her up according
to the preference she shows in color,
the cleanliness and the fit of this garb
for her hands.
Th rrirl's skirt mav hide the fact
that her shoo lacks a button, a jacket
may conceal a frayed sleeve, and a
bunch of roses or a big chrysanthemum
may lessen the conspicnousness of a
shabby bertha. But the gloves always
reveal their defects and likewise their
attractions, which are somehow in
stinctively accepted by the observer as
so many signs of their owner's charac
teristics. There clings to gloves that a girl has
worn a sort of personality, which ac
counts for the tendency of lovers to ap
propriate these small pieces of their
adored one's toilet
A man said last night: "If I were
contcmnlatimr matrimony, I should get I
several sharp looks at the gloves worn
by the object of my affection. By that
means I should find out somewhat con
cerning her extravagance or prudence.
I should observe how she puts her
gloves on, how she buttons them, how
she wears them, how she takes them
off, and how she puts them away until
the next outing time. All these are
hints concerning individual habits."
A haunted house in these practical and
unromantic days is something of a rarity,
but an individual haunted with the idea
that his ailment is incurablo is a personage
frequently met with. Disbelief in tho abil
ity of medicine to cure is only a mild form
of monomania, althouge iu some cases re

Ellen Terry's Autograph.
New York Tribune: It has been
found that Miss Ellen Terry makes the
"autograph tiend" useful by requiring
every one who wants her autograph to
contribute something toward the sup
port of the hospital in which she is es
pecially interested. It is suggested
that other people who, for some reason
or another, are targets for the hunters
after autographs, should adopt a simi
lar plan and levy, say f0 cents for some
worthy charity as a condition precedent
to the writing of their names. They
would thus make the "autograph
fiend," who is now generally regarded
as a nuisance, a useful and productive
member of society.
