J How aFacotloua Iliirh.Sherlrronce Amused the Court. Once upou ;i time, or, in lie a little more particular, nearly half a century ago (for the writer well remembers the time, place and scene, which are (irmly fixed upon his boyish recollections), there dwelt in the town of . in Old England, a remarkable oddity in the person of an attorney at law who, although not fair to look upon (for he was in truth one of the homeliest specimens of humanity ever beheld by mortal man), was withal a person of sound judgment, great benevolence, varied learning, a poet, a painter and a wit of no mean order. It so happened that the aforesaid gentle man was appointed high sheriff of the town. Ue was a man of fortune, and had a kind heart, as many a poor prisoner could testify who partook of the good cheer with which the prisoners were liberally supplied at Christmas and other well-known festivals from the private purse of the high sheriff. It wan, of course, the duty of the high sheriff to summon a grand and petit jury to attend the quarter sessions, of which, the recorder, mayor and aldermen of the borough composed the court. In the performance of his official duties in summoning the petit jury, our high sheriff indulged in some of the strangest and drollest breaks that have probably ever been heard of in any other town or country. In the first place he summoned for the October court a jury con' sisting of twelve of the fattest men he conld find in the borough, and when they came to the book to bo sworn it appeared that only nine men could sit comfortably in the box; after great deal of sweating, squeezing and scolding, the panel was literally jammed into the box, and when seated they presented to tho eye of the court and the audience the "tightest fit" of jury that was ever seen in a court room. Literally they became, much to the astonishment of the court and its robed advocates, a packed jury and no mistake! For the January term our facetious high sheriff (in consequence, it is said, of some hint from the recorder that thero should bo no more fat panels summoned to his court) went into the opposite extreme. He summoned twelve of the leanest and tallest men he could find in the borough, and when they took their seats in tho box it appeared comparatively empty— there was indeed room for twelve more of the same dimensions. For the April term of the court our humorous functionary summoned a jury consisting of twelve barbers. Now, It so happened that among tho lattor were tho very perruquiers who dressed the recorder's and barristers' wigs, and some of the latter, arriving late at the bar, had to appeal 1 that morning in court with their wigs undressed or half-dressed so as to out a very redicu- lous figure, amidst the smiles and half- suppressed laughter of the bystanders. The high sheriff enjoyed tho fun amazingly, but looked "grave as a judge" while he tried to keop silence in the court room. But the crowning joke of the waggish functionary occurred at the summoning of his fourth and last jury, at tho summer session in July. For that term of the court the high sheriff, not having the fear of the recorder, the mayor and the aldermen before his eyes, actually summoned a squinting jury; twelve as queer-looking bipeds as ever took their seats in a jury box jury that was more looked at and laughed at than any of the appointed twelve that ever were sworn to "well and truly try and true deliverance make between their sovereign lord and king and the prisoner at the bar." But the scene was so irresistibly droll that the learned recorder could not main tain his gravity. The mayor and aldermen followed suit; the barristers laughed while their wigs became powderless: nav, even the poor prisoners in the dock, who were to be put upon their trial, and some of them undergo transportation, could not refrain from joining in the general cachinalion. And when the learned recorder commanded the high sheriff to bring tho courtroom to order, and intimated, with u half-suppressed laugh, that the lattor ought to be ashamed of himself for summoning sueh a jury, the drollery of this court scene was heightened consideraly by the quick, ready and sonorous response of the high sheriff, who,looking at the same time at the squinting jury, exclaimed "All good and lawful men, your honor. —Toronto Mail. its center, mid this .being borne in mind, the complex shape of each stave will be at once appreciated. Not only is the stuve curved lengthways to form the 'bulge,' but crossways it is similarly made to form part of the circumference of the cask; whilst the edges must receive the exact level to fit those on either side along their entiro length. The two processes known as 'chiming' and 'crozing,' which consist in finishing the ends for receiving tho heads, yet reniuin to bo performed. The 'chime' is the bevel formed on tho extremity of the staves; and tho 'croze' is tho groove into which the ends or heads tit. noop- ing, generally with iron bands, completes the manufacture of a cask. Having thus sketched in brief outline the routine in vogue in the cooper's trade for manufacturing casks, we pass to consider as concisely as possiblo Mr. Oncken's invention for producirJg stave- less casks direct from the tree. Mr. Onckon aims at turning out casks from one piece of wood—the body of the cask to be formed of one long single stave; the ordinary shape—that is, the double conoid—being retained. Tho method of preparing tho body of the desk may be likened to sharpening a lead pencil by a pocket shnrponor, the shaving produced forming the stave of the cask. The stem of a tree—poplar is fre> quently choson—is first cut into lengths corresponding to the size of the cask. These lengths are then boiled for two or three hours in a closed vessel, current of electricity being passed through the water the whole time. The chemical action thus produced in combination with tho prolonged boiling gives to the wood the necessary softness, and enables thesub* sequent cutting process to be performed without difficulty in a machine rotating tho log in the same manner at the ordinary iathe, whilst advancing it toward a broad block fixed on a frame, having a slot in it similar to that of the common joiner's plane. As the trunk of tlx? tree is revolved against the block, a continuous sheet of wood is cut of! any desired thickness, and drawn out fiat b}' hand on to a table at the rear oi the machine. The sheets are then passed through a grooving-machine, which cuts tho 'croze' or groove in which the head is eventually fitted. Another machine seizes the sheet between two arms, and by the means of knives, cuts a sories of mortises or slots round tho sides, giving it when made up the desired conical shape. Eventually, the sheet roaches the cooper, who rolls it into cylindrical form, drives on tho hoops ; and renders it a perfect barrel, after drying In a special apparatus. The invention above detailed has safely passed the experimental stage, and is already in full practical operation at Mcrxem, in Germany, where Mr. Oncken has started a factory, and is busily engaged in turning out his stavelesB casks. When it is considered how numberless are the quantities of aasks in daily UBe in every part of the globe, and the innumerable purposes to which they are devoted, hardly a trade or industry being carried on without them, the wide fiold open to improved and economical meuns of production of such indispensable necessaries of civilization, will be readilly appreciated.— Chamber's Journal.

Baumhardt, Drufgiat, oua door north of SaaU FO Hotai, French Schoolboy Friendship. A delightful feature of French life is the close, brotherly intimacy of men lasting from early boyhood throughout life. The "thee" and "thou" of schoolboy days are resumed after years of absence. A Frenchman will make sacrifices for his friends as alertly as an Englishman for his betrothed. One comrade may have succeeded in the race of life, the other may have failed. The fraternal bonds remain unbroken. Heart still speaks to heart as in that careless time when the pair sat side by side in the class-room. The closeness of tho marriage tie among ourselves interferes with this kind of friendship. In France it frequently happens that to his friend, and his friend only, a man can freely unUurden himself.—Fortnightly Review.' Do all kinds of Transferring and Hauling.

Ther A** Now Ueinie Mnda From A Stnffla l.roittl Htuve. Few objects are more familiar than the common cask or barrel; yet few people have probably been at pains to consider the skill and ingenuity which have succeeded in bringing to perfection an invention as scientific, as beneficial all the world over; and probably fewer still are conversant with the brainpower and time which have been expended in attempts to produce machinery which shall at the same time cheapen and expedite the manufacture of these woll-kuown and useful contrivances. ItarreiB are no new thing; as far back as tho time of Pliny they were in use, and that author mentions the Alpine valleys as the locality of their invention. The trade readily divides Itself into two great classes— tho wet and dry manufactures; or casks designed to hold liquids, or dry goods. A third sub-division, known technically as "white cooperage"—that is, wooden tubs, churns, pails, and other e staved vessels—may be added. When it is considered that tight casks have not merely to withstand tho pressure, of the contained liquid, but frequently also that of gases, arising from fermentation of such liquid, in addition to the handling and rough usage to which tlwy are at all times liable, it will be readily understood how important are sound materials and workmanship in their construction. A cask is a double conoid—namely, having its greatest diameter—technically known as the 'bulge' or 'belly'— at A Cheaper Grade.
