From the Washington Star: "Photography has reduced the difficulties in lawsuits and trials to a minimum," remarked a member of the bar. "la times past it was the universal custom in murder trials to take the juries to the scenes of the crime, so that they could gat a better understanding of the testimony and the facts in the case. Besides the time involved, there was considerable expense in this. There were, you know, elaborate diagrams, drawings and sketches constantly used in important trials. All this is now done away by the photograph, which is always accurate. In making copies ot exhibits in civil causes, notes, deeds, wills and the like the blue print has done away entirely with the services of the draughtsmen who were employed to reproduce the same. "I remember weh the celebrated trial of General Daniel Sickles, then a representative from New York, for the murder of Philip Barton Key, who was the United States district attorney. The pictorial exhibits in this trial almost filled one of the walls of the courthouse. The clubhouse in front of which the shoot- Ing occurred, now the site of the Lafayette Square opera house, was, of course, the principal picture. Then there was a drawing of Lafayette square, showing how Key signaled over to Mrs. Sickles, who resided on the opposite side of that square, and a big drawing of the house on Fifteenth sireet, between K and L streets, where the meetings between Colonel Key and Mrs. Sickles took place, as well as th« signals which were displayed on the house indicating to Key whether or not Mrs. Sickles bad arrived there. Be- Bides these, there were other pictures and diagrams which were prepared by William Forsytto, the city surveyor. They cost considerable money, but the whole thing could now be better represented at the expense of a couple of dollars and ten minutes' use of a ko- dak. I have known of hundreds of dollars being expended in the preparation of facsimiles of exhibits, forgeries, etc., all of which can now be reproduced in a half hour by the blue print process and at a very trifling expense somparatively."

A remarkable yonng woman vrbo is arranging to bring out the book of Job aa a dramatic reading ill New York, an adaptation which has never been tried before, is Miss Ida Benfey, "tbe American story teller," who came here from California a few years ago with nothing bot her indomitable pluck and talent to recommend her. and who has attained a material and artistic success which bas never been excelled iu Gotbam. Miss Benfey has been a public reader ever since sbe was 9 years old. "Iu iny salad days," sbe says, "I was an orthodox elocutionist, but before I had gone far in my career tbe scales dropped from tny eyes aud I began to learn frotu the book of nature. It was at rhis time I began to accomplish something, for I had reached tbe plane where I was free." But the people of California loved her quite a"s well in the old days as Driven to It.

MISS 1HA HHNFEY. they do uow, when they give her the tremendous ovation every year which welcomes her back to her old borne. As regards the matter of the Job reading Miss Beufey said: "I regard Job as tbe greatest tragedy in literature. It is tbe epic of the inner life, tbe symbolic relation between mau and tiod. Only great people, such as Fronde aud Carlyle, know Job. It is already iu tbe most dramatic form possible. I would as soou think of changing a star." Miss Beufey got her idea of the .lob rending from "Professor Felix Adler cf the School of Ethical Culture, who i> most enthusiastic over the literary qualities of Job aud Isaiah. Sbe intends also making a great comedy reading of Jonah, which tba Kev. Dr. Lymau Abbott calls ''the Pickwick Papers of the Bible." She lias beeu -working up thia'reading for three years, but witbiu six week* of its proposed delivery has not commir- teil it to memory, because sha "prefeiv line to be hampered with tbe exact language of tbe test too loug iu advaucu." Miss Beufey has dramatized "Adam Bede," "The kill on the Floss," Dickens' "Tula of Two Cities" and Hugo's "Les Miserables." Sbe does not read detached fcones from these works, but by skillful manipulation presents the story of an eutire novel iu a single <:veu- ing. This is done by readiug tbe most dramatic chapters aud explaiuiug their connection with the rest of tbe book iu her own forceful language. Her inter pretatiou of these great stories is wou- derfal iu its dramatic power. In berseli sbe embodies a whole company of play ei's. Sbe is a marvelous impnrsouator. Miss Benfey is well known in Loudon, where she has read at the Duko oi Sutherland's, tbe- Duke of Westminster's, at Alma-Tadema's, Dr. Leuox- Brown's aud other houses of sirnilai prominence.

Man ever stands upon its shore and gazes out over its calm surface without a thought of danger. It licks his feet—it advance* and recedes almost playfully—birt all the same it will crack bis bones and cat him, and wipe the crimson foam from its y4W» as if nothing had happend, as it has Seen doing ever since the world began. A man who carelessly saunters alongr the shore of the insatiate sea of disease, will some day encounter a great storm in the form of some fatal malady and will be engulfed. Because a man does not have to go to bed when he suffers from a trivial indigestion, because he does not have to give tip work when he gets nervous and cannot sleep at night, because he can still force down an unsatisfactory meal when he is suffering from loss of appetite, because by strong effort he can add a column of figure* with aching head—is no reason that these disorders are trifling or to be neglected. They are the warnings of serious sickness. A man who promptly heeds them, and resorts to the right remedy, will speedily recover his usual health. Tbe man who neglects them will find that he is in the grip of consumption, some nervous disorder, or some other dread malady, due to improper or insufficient nutrition. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is the best, of all medicines for men and women who suffer in this way. It restores the lost appetite, facilitates the flow of digestive juices, invigorates tbe liver, purifies and enriches the blood and tones and builds up the nerves, It cures 98 per cent of all chronic, bronchial, throat and lung affections, and is an unfailing remedy for nervous prostration.
