There will lju .in inforinnl meeting at
the supreme court room on Saturday , nt
which meeting thcro will bo present
nrarly or nil the newly appointed dis
trict judges. The question of the legal
ity of the law by which they were cre
ated will be the question for considera
tion. and the matter is thus curly brought
up for settlement , as the auditor does
not propose to take the chance on issu
ing pay for the judged and their steno
graphers without knowing that the law
would stand by the test. The cfl'cctivo
work of amateur clerks is therefore at a
very early date bearing fruit In litiga
tion over blunders , and the question at
issue seems to bo settling itself m the
one channel to determine whether the
bill ns recorded is correct , and a judge
in the Second district to be decapitated ,
or whether the bill is to bo declared an
error , and the largo number of judges
bo retired thus early in their
judicial career to plain , common
citizens again. There are already
a number of the stenographers from the
dill'urent districts looking for appoint
ment , and the anxiety will remain at a
tight tension until the supreme court
brings relief. There are none about the
capitol in the light of the decision of the
court in the recent register of deeds case
who are able to predict the outcome , aud
the bcssion of the judges will undoubtedly
be an interesting one. Furthermore , thn
question is ol a great deal of interest to
many of the overburdened districts.
One of the coming lists of appoint
ments from which the governor will bo
relieved is the appointment of the three
secretaries of the board of transporta
tion that takes the place of the railroad
commission on July 1. The board of
transportation consists of the auditor of
sUUo , treasurer , secretary of state , at
torney general and commissioner of
lands aud buildings. These live wdl
make the appointments of secretaries and
it will tixko , under the law , a four-fifths
vote to make the appointments.
The law also provides tbat
no more than two of the secretaries shall
bo taken from the same political party ,
and hence one of the present number at
least will have to go , and a good berth
will be opened "lor some democrat : to
show what ho knows about railroads.

It will bo romcmucred that Mr. C. T.
Boggs was one of the most prominent in

the latter in furnishing paving material.

rank growth , It is n fruit that docs best

not attack it a crop may always bo looked
for. They are not grown extensively for

have a space devoted to them.
Colts that worn foaled in the fall will
bo no incumbranco at this season , as they
can bo taken away from their dams and
tinned on the pastures as soon as the
grass thall be ready. It is an advantage
to nave the colts on the farm foaled in
the fall where the mares are intended
to do spring work.
Do not abandon the old reliable va

When lambs are well at night and arc

sometimes due to forced and high feed

heart. Overproduction of fat , with a de

phates and nitrogen rather than in fat
and starch.
A saving of labor may bo made in the
garden by using the rake frequently.
Very young weeds may easily bo de
stroyed bv passing tlio rake between the
rows , while by allowing the woods to re

It is a bad practice to rely too much on
artificial coloring to give butter a golden
tint. The best buttcrmakcrs secure n
natural color by judicious feeding , and if

He took Pat under his cliaigo when ho
was but a lad and drilled him in the fine
art of throwing throe cards. Pat did not
stiok to this kind of a skin game , but at
once branched out as a legitimate gam
bler. Ho is a jolly , whole-soled fellow , a
free spender , and a man whoso word is
good for thousands of dollars whenever

the woll-knowu gambler , and another
sport. They were running a very pros
perous game In Chicago. Shpedy be
sides was bucking against nil the other
games In town. He struck an unusual
bad run of luck , nnd in thirty days
dumped over $100.000 into the coll'ers of
the rival banks. Finally it came to the
point where he wns down to his last del
lar. Ho kept playiug , however , and put
ip n marker for ' 0,000 with tlio
jwner of the game. This loft Pat in a
dilemma. Twenty thousand dollars was

s at his place of business.

, o ono of lus partners.
"Why not ? " the latter Inquired.
' 'Uecauso ' wo can't do business. "
"What's to prevent us ? "
"Oil , nothings only I have blown In the
bank-roll , and there is no use to try to do
business without monoy. "
"Tho h 1 you havoi" was his part
ner's only retort.
Pat wont out on the street with a bad
; asu of blues. Finally ho thought of a
man in Cincinnati who owed him $1,500 ,
; md ho resolved to como to the Queen
city. Ho came , saw the man and got
$600 from him. At the time ho made the
visit tlio first race meeting over held at
atouia was in full blast. The town was
'wide open' ' aud several big race games
were running. Ono of the biggest was
owned by Jim Crawford , an old Cincin
nati sport. Ho had opened at 00 Fifth
street , and Pat Sheedv began to play
against him with his $ ii'JO ' roll. In two
lays' play ho , with the assistance of Eli
Marks , a Louisville gambler , mmlo the
ilealor close shop , and Crawford & Co.
wcro out $15,000. Of this amount Shcody
look $11,000 and Marks $4,000. His suc
cess in tliis city gave him courage , and
rom here ho wont to Now York , whore
lie won $ 10,000 more. With this money
10 returned to Chicago , restored tlio
lank-roll , and for two years moro re
mained in partnership with the saino
Jero Dunn , the murderer of Jimmy El-
lott , the pn/o-fightor , accompanied
Shcedy on this trip , It will be remem
bered that Shcedy did moro than anyone
else to got Dunn out of the Elliott scrape.
"What have you to say about Dunn ? "
was asked of Sheedy yesterday.
"Not a thing. He served mo a good
rick once when I needed a friend , and I
tried to ropav it when ho got in the
trouble with Elliot. 1 spent my time and
money to got him out of it , and I did no
more than 1 ought to , because it was
only repaying an old score. "
"How much money have you won in
ono sitting ? "
"Twenty-six thousand dollars is the
largest money I evdr took oft" in ono
night's play. I did that in Chicago , but
it did not all como oil | of a faro bank. I
ivas making side bets with Haverly , the
minstrel man , nt the'same time , and bo-
Iweon the two 1 made the big boodle I
liavo just named. " p
Shocdy has an enormous head. Ho
wears a 7J hat , and l\ns \ to have his hats
made to order. On&.timo during a visit
to Cincinnati ho was bothered with a
bore. The fellow in''qucstion ' was a little
Chicago lawyer , u who followed
Sheedy about frorrr place to place.
"Wherever I walUed ho walked ,
; uid wherever 1 ate he was sure to do the
same thing , " was STiordy's description
of him. The latter Was trying to gut rid
of him , but could thmk of no way of do
ing it. Finally , ono day in Sullivan's
Vine street sample.-room an argument
came up , and both Sheody and the lawyer
threw themselves into the broach. They
argued long and loud , and as Sheedy
bail the best side and is a good talker ho
made the lawyer look ridiculous. The
latter was considerably crestfallen by
being beaten by a sport , and as ho stood
around with nis head hanging down
Shcedy took occasion to emphasize his
defeat. The lawyer had an unusually
small head and Shecdy opened on him
by saying : "Now , when 1 beat a man at
my game I always like to show him what
odds ho has been playing against. You
are no exception to the rulo. I have just
beaten you and I think I cau clearly
demonstrate that the odds were in my
favor. " With that Shcody switched hats ,
placing his own on the lawyer's head
aud put the laltor's dicer on his own
caput. Shcedy's hat completely covered
the little attorney , while Sheedy looked
like a man wo-iring a boy's BI/.G. Tlio
lawyer's hat stood right up on top of his
head. This illustration was too much
for the Windy City attorney and ho made
his escape.
