The death of the chief magistrate
was unexpected, as he bad been In
fairly good health lately, and there
had been no premonitory symptoms of
any kind of trouble. Sunday he at
tended church as usual, and when he
retired at night he was to all appear
ances in his customary health.
Death came about six o'clock Mon

His Great Argument
From 1856 to 18S8 he lived in Chi

side bis Immediate circle of friends
and associates at the bar until he
undertook the defense of Bishop
Cheney on a charge of heresy. His

The nomination of Mr. Fuller, then
fifty-five years of age. was followed by
a memorable contest in the senate.
Inducing a Sneeze.
Probably everybody has experi
enced the displeasure, if not actual
pain, which comes from missing a
sneeze. There is an easy way out of
this if one happens to be out of doors
at the time an dthe weather is cleai
Just glance at the sun. There Is some
thing about the brightness of It that
supplies the missing irritation, or
whatever it is that Is needed, and nine
times out of ten if the sneeze has not
got too far away it will come back.
New York Sun.
A man advertised for a wife and
requested each candidate to inclose
her "carte-de-vlste. A spirited young
lady wrote to the advertiser In the
following terms: "Sir. I do not in

some authority for putting a 'cart' be

Lectures for Country Pastures.
The Maine Agricultural college pro
poses to establish lectures especially
for country pastors.
The Judiciary committee, with Its
Republican majority, to which the
nomination was sent April 30, held
up the appointment until July 20.
Then the committee reported it to the
senate "without recommendation."
For three hours that body debated

His Great Victory.
Finally, by a vote of 41 to 20. bis
nomination was confirmed.
Since that day the entire court as
it then existed has passed away with
the single exception of Justice Har
lan. Of those prominent in the fight
over bis confirmation only Senator
Cullom remains, and President Cleve
land, who thus honored the Illinois
lawyer, has thus gone to his grave.
Throughout his service Chief Jus
tice Fuller was noted for the dignity
with which he filled the position. He
preserved that manner on the bench
Although small of stature, not more
than five feet seven Inches, his wealth
of silvery hair and classic features
made him a commanding figure wher
ever he appeared.
Chief Justice Fuller leaves an In
delible stamp on the laws of the coun
try. Among his most famous opinions
are the following:
His Famous Decisions.
The Income tax decision, in which
the income tax law was held to be un
constitutional. The Danbury hat case, by which la
bor unions were held to be amenable
to the Sherman anti-trust law.
The Western Union Telegraph com
pany versus the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. In which the state was
denied the right to tax telegraph mes
sages, except when interstate.
The Bank of Washington versus
Hume. In which the Insurable Interest
of the wife and children in the life
of the husband and father was recog
nized as distinguished from the claims
Inman versus South Carolina Rail
way company. In which the railroad
was denied the power to exempt It
self from liability for its negligence
in the shipment of goods.
Moore versus Crawford. In which
married women were made to bear lia
bilities, such as those growing out of
the fraudulent sale of land, as well as
the legal rights.
Leisy versus Haddin. In which the,
state was denied rights over original
packages of liquor in interstate com
merce, an opinion which led to the
passage of the Wilson liquor law.
On the coast of southeastern Alaska
the average annual precipitation Is
about ninety Inches and trees grow
