THE DAILY CHRONICLE, JUNE 11,1891. THt MAGISTRATE'S MULE. Hlft Honor Thought' He Had a Bargain, but It Bid Not Pan Out Well. Winn—a rough frontiersman of the genus cowboy—is the perpetrator of a Joko tipon a certain erudite justice of the peace, and the tale will bear repeating. His home is in the quiet town of Richfield, and when be visits the settlement he celebrates by painting the town a flaming cardinal. On one of these occasions he took a hand at some simple game played with five cards, of which the first is buried. I think they call it "stud.!' Something about the game was forbidden, and, under the kind supervision of the marshal, Winn, with five companions, found himself before the bar of justice. t Denials and defense were useless. Justice Orrick solemnly pertteed the statute^ and fined each offender 512.50. Winn found that he had but ten dollars, and this he offered to the magistrate, but no compromise could bo effected with the city treasury: It was $13.50 or twelve and one-half days in durance vile. Finally a happy thought struck the young man. "Say, judge, I'll Rive you a bill of sale of my mule, and if I' don't bring you the mouey within five days I'll bring the critter a:nl it's yours." Now an average, mule is worth forty dollars, and the justice thought he had a good bargain; HO did Winn, although he never cracked »i smile until the bill was drawn up, signed and delivered, then something in his countenance warned the grave Orrick of impending trouble. "Winn, how old is that ar mewl?" "Old enough to vote, judge, old. enough to vote," and the door was closed from the outside. Now, Richfield justice cannot be lightly treated.- Straightway the justice hied him to the constable and together they visited Winn's home. .;. "Well, Winn, I have a warrant for you." "What fer?" "The judge says as yon ain't settled that fine," "Ain't settled that fine? Yon try and make me settle it agin and it'll cost you three or four mules." "How's that?" "Well, I give the judge a bill of sale for my mule and he let me go." "Is that so, Brother Orrick?" The judge, after much hesitation, confessed that such was the case. "Well, then, you can't do nothing more with Winn." / "But, Winn, you'll let me see the mewl?" "Cert. Come along." Out to the old corral they went, and there upon the ground lay the ungainly hybrid, patriarch of all the mules in Utah. Winn kicked it and it slowly rose and tottered to its feet. ' •'Look out, gentlemen, it may fall on you, and I can't be responsible to? accident." "Now, Winn," whined the baffled Orrick, "I meant to do the right thing by you, but I guess I stretched the law a leetle. The law won't let me take anything that will eat or ru n away." "You're all right, judge. You're all right. That mule can't do neither one." Five days later there was a procession through the main street of Richfield. Winn drove a cart, and behind was tied Brother Orrlc.k/s mule. Two of his boon companions marched on either side -to steady ita feeble steps, and the fifth brought up the rear and gave the beast a push whenever it seemed that it must surely fall. The next morning there was a f uneral-iu Justice Orrick's corral, and the worthy magistrate, having just deposited $12.50 of his own hard earned cash in the city treasury, was the sole and Stream. , Notice.. • .

A. door opens out into the garden, so that when he wants a brief rest from his labors he can take a turn and come back to work with renewed zest. He writes on blue paper (large sermon size) in a strikingly neat^clear, rather small hand. The morning is spent in work. Four or five times a week he goes into town,; lunches and transacts business •at the Society of Authors, or elsewhere. , What England's Arwy Cysts.
