.Th humor of th late Justice Harlan
ot til United Htatee supreme court was
sparkling and spontaneous. It cam at
unexpected momenta and apparently
without premeditation. Ills manner of
speech at such times was often so sertuda
and stern that additional epic was lent
to what he aald. xi
"Do you emnke?" he axked a " gudvt

To which th gueat replied, 'Alnlut

"Well, then, take a aem'.-.innu,U with
me." suggeetrd the Justice, banding his
guent a claar "that Is, It you can stand
