Old Judge Return of Cowan nu fond of tell ing his early experience at the bar. My first r ise, he would say. came upon ine unexpect edly, after I had waited a considerable tiuie f??r h client. The way I came to get it was this : A young girl, ilclen Montressor, was to be tried at our County Court for stealing a breast p n. valued at four dollars, and twenty dollars in gold, from the trunk of her employer. James Wesley, merchant in the town ut Bedlord The theft, which was detected fire weeks before, occasioned quite ft talk at the time, as the girl was beautiful, and Wesley ami his wile Eunice were anything but that, besides being generally detested. People said Helen had been shame tully treated by her mistress, who was jealous of her, and it was even hinted that there bad b?en foul pl.iy in the prosecution for theft. The subsequent trial of a gang of counter feiters and horse thieves had so absorbed public attention, that the case of llolen Montressor was forgotten, and no one seemed to care for her fate, But when she was placed in the prisoner's box. her beauty rivelcd every eye, And when the Judge asked her who was her counsel, and she modestly replied that she had uooe and no money to nay a lawyer, there was not a member of the oar who would not hare willingly undertaken her ease. The Judge after looking round for a moment, fixed his eye upon mo, and said, " Mr. Hemsen. will you please act as this young lady's counsel." I started as though I had been shot. Luckily, ajuror had been takan ill. and the Court ad journed till ten next morning, or I am afraid I should have made sad work with my client's case. As I left the court-room I looked at my wateh; is was eleven, so I had but twenty-three hours to prepare. I called upon the district Attorney and asked to sec tho indictment and the evidence taken before the Justice of the l'eace. As he tumbled over a pile of docu ments in search of the papers, he said : '? The Judge must have a spite against you, llemsen, to put you in such a tight place. and you a green band. No offense," he added, as ho ob served the rising color of my cheek?'* no offense; I simply meant that you are inexperienced. There are the documents; take them home with you?only bo sure to bring them to court to morrow morning. You will see that your client has not a chance." I was annoyed at this light reference to my client, for whom I already entertained deep re soect and believed innocent; but I said nothing. Hastening to my office I locked myself in and commencikl the analysis of my case The evi dence consisted of the testimony of James and Eunice Wesley, Sanh Brown. a seamstress, Charlotte Boyce, a domestic, and Thomas llan iKgan. a man of all work employed by the W esleys Hannegin's evidence seemed straight forward and truthful, and so did the servant girl's. I made up ray ra-nd that they were not unfriendly to my client, and that I would seek an interview with them, although it would necessitate a journey to Bedford. In Miss Brown's testimony I at once detected intense malice, and determined to harrow her unmer cifully in cross-examination. Wesley's evi dence was similar in style and matter to that of Ifannegan; but Mrs. Wesley's was full, dis eursive and acrimonious?such as, that t4 She had always believed Helen to be a viper, but her husband upheld the trollop." To my mind the ease Soeiued dear Mrs Wesley herself had put those things in Helen's trunk I next went to the Court House, an l request- j el Mr Mace, the Sheriff, who lived in tho j wing of the building, to introduce me to the ; prisoner He conducted me to her cell. Al- j though the bolts clanged heavily as they sprang j from hicks, our entrance did not seem to at tract her attention She was standing with clasped hands before her grated window, ga ting at the sky The Sheriff touched her arm. and said. - Miss Montressor. Mr Kemsen is the lawyer who is to manage your case, and he wants to see you She started. turned quickly ar-und. and wade an inclination of her head, to indicate her readiness to listen, but she said not a word Tho Sheriff left the cell and we were alone Conscious that every moment was precious. I said: " Mis.- Montressor. we must throw acido cere mony. and communicate frankly uj?oii this painfully business. I believe you are inno cent. Ihe thing is to prove you so. This promise* to 1* difficult, but I am not without flope If you will tell me frankly, what your experience has been with the Wesleys, my "task may be lightened " I then put a series of questions, and learned she was fifteen years old ; that she had lived with Mrs Wesley, who had been married about eight years ; that she had lived with a kind old gentleman mimed tiregory. \rho hal taught her to call him grandpa: that Mrs Wesley, who was then called Miss Naesmitb. lived with Mr. j ?iregory. also; that he seemed afraid of Miss Naesmith that Miss Naesmith inherited all his property, and married Mr. Wesley about a month after he died ; that she told her never to j call him grandpa any m^rc, for he wasn't any ' relation to her: that the day on which o!d Mr. ' Gregory died he g.tve her a sealed package, and told her not to let Eunice see it. but to give it : to a certain lawyer when he returned ^town, ! ! >r it would make her a rich voung lady; and then he cried, and said he had let Eunice have her own way too much; that she fell asleep with the packet in her lap. and whon she awoke it was gone; and she never dare ask anv ques tions about it; that Mrs Wesley hated tier and beat her. and treated her like a slave, and that she sometimes thought of drowning herself. <ne was s? miserable, that Mr Wesley said im proper things to her ; that ho was a" bad man. but weak and under his wife's control; that tho day on which her trunk was searched, she was sent on an errand to the minister's; wa^ gone about aa hour and a half, and on her return w*' taken up stairs to see her trunk opened, n.lore -he had pulled off her bonnet and shawl; tuen she was sure Mrs Wesley had put things in her trunk while she was out, because she illdeU) had overhauled it that morning, and they were not in it theu ; but whether Mr.W'es k knew about it jhe could not sav. although -he rather thought he did. because he looked t n opening her trunk. felling the poor girl to cheer up. I went to the M,eriti * sitting r.*,m. where I lound Mrs. M ? UMCU 1 "formed her that in my ?pin urn Mi.?< Montressor was a persecuted girl, and , hoped she would try to cheer her up. *?that -he *ould cuter the court room with a good heart on ih. morrow; this the kind-hearted woman prora ted to do. and I hastened to my office My ' ? ram was m a whirl Gregory-grandpa-the .

The latter consisting of four half eagles, one of which had a hole in it, that had been made by Murch the jeweler, so Mrr Wesley could string on a rib bon tor a birthday present for the minister's little boy . and that was one way Mrs. Wesley knew the money was hers. He also gave me a letter signed 44 Eunice Gregory," that he had found in the yard that day, and which he main ThUti! ,ln. Mr" Wes,ey's hand-writing, lhat had made him suspect that her name wasn't * acsmith before she was married to Wesley ? he had thought that she might have been some relation ti> old Mr. Gregory, who died, and there must have been something bad to iuuke her change her name. This information made a deep impression on my mind, taken in connection with what Helen had told me; besides the name Kunice Gregory seemed floating in my memory as though I had seeu it connected with some event which had taded from recollection and was dimly recalled I dismissed Hanncgan, and paid a visit to Mr. Murch, the jeweler, told him who I was. and for what I called. He remembered the half eagle business?in fact it was on his record lie turned to see on what day the hole was made in the half eagle. It was Wednesday, the 17th ot March?the very day Helen a trunk was searched I asked at what hour the coin was ,Ho repl'ed that she called for it about 11 in the forenoon, and that MissMontressor s trunk was searched about 1 in the afternoon of the same day. " That looks very strange," said I. ? Would you have any objections to attend the trial to morrow, with your books, and testify "' " None at all," ho replied. I turned to depart. At that moment Wosley entered the shop and was accosted by the jew eler, who gave me a wink to indicate who he was. N e had never before mot. so I regarded him at my leisure. He was an evil looking man. her his left eyo was a quoer shaped *ar. which ran crookedly across his forehead. The instant I saw the sear I felt as though the whole thing was clear. The scar, the descrip tion of which I so well remembered, brought the whole story freshly to my mind. I rernera bcred now the name of Eunice Gregory?the child murderess-and there stood her accom plice under an assumed name. Giving the jeweler a warning glance, I hastened to m v car riage and drove turiously home, shut myself in my ro..m, and determined to pass tho entire night, if necessary, in preparing for tho contest. I wished to clear my client on the charge made against her, expose the Wesley?, and oblige them to make restitution to the wronged and pillaged ornhan. I ransacked my memory to find something tangible concerning the past career of Eunicc V Wy a"'1 her ?*-eompliee, butfound nothing. 1 had read the story many years ago before in a newspaper, the name of which I could not re member. I could not prove that the Wesleys were the same parties; and should I mention my suspicions in court the District Attornev Houkl scout at them a.s ridiculous and malicious inventions of my own. and tho Judge would charge the jury to pay no heed to them. I must sap the characters of the Wesleys in my cros* eiaminations of their witnesses and thus try to eflect a breach sufficient to justify a direct as sault, on a churge of conspiracy against Helen, and crush Jauies Wesley on the witness stand And 1 wove my meshes for the victim until the morning sun rays streamed through my win [TO BE CONTINUED IX OUK .NEXT J Po.TTL.S IN SLEF.PINO._It is better to go fo sleep on the right side, for then the stomarh is very much in the position of a bottle turned nn snle down. and the contents are aided in passing Ten '?L^aV,ta,ion. ,f one <>" the left side the operation of emptying the stomach Cu"'f,,ts ls more like drawing water from a well.
