STORIES OF EARLY DAY It is a fact that many times Juries are empanelled to try cases when the attorneys on one side know that the jury will never get to decide the case. The attorneys think they may take the case to the supreme' court .if th?ev are beaten, and there are more chances to work in objections when the case is tried before the jury than when tried by tho court. Their knowledge of the ruling of the courts makes it almost certain that a demurrer to the evidence submitted by the plaintiff will be sustained. In some of the cases which a jury was empanelled to try they sat patiently for more than a day listening to the evidence, and Just a? the plaintiff would say that his evidence was all in Judge Dale would order the jury to return a verdict for the defendant, without ever leaving the box. Arc Tn M and a Rinh Hanflilfif I In other i. th Jur' hBd to return a Crowns Evening. Twelve of the men who have made "Wichita's history, men who settled on these plains over thirty years ago, men who are now reaping the harvest of their sawing, it -was of this kind of hardy oak timber that the small group was composed that met at Mr. Robert Lawrence's house on Xorth Topeka rvenue erdict arrived at by the judge. The average juror in the district court is always very anxious to secure the good opinion of the judge of the court. He knows that he has sworn to try cases according to the law and the evidence, and he understands that he must tako the evidence submitted and his law from the instructions of the court. The jury always listens attentively to the reading of the instructions of the judge, and then when they go to the jury room each one of them usually reads them over again, and when the jury docs not readily arrive at a verdict the instructions last Eight, to enjoy each others fa- of the court cuts considerable of a fig-miliar words of Kood cheer and stories of : ure in the discussion in the Jury room. the seventies. It was a bachelor's supper, given In honor of Mr. B. F. Pewey, who is visiting his brothers i:i this city. NV-vr-r was a more enjoyab'-- supper given, and never again will such a rongrss of Wichita eari p.-ttlf-rs be bUi'ii together. The real fplrit of the evening evinced Itself whn the guest? w-re ushered into i. spacious d'ring room. The threshold of the d--r,r marked th. line between the present and the seventies. In the c-nter ! th room sat a large table, bare of ;iny covering except a few candles stuck in the necks of bottlt s. that oast a dim and flickering light over all. By this uncertain light one could hardly riistin- ' It is the intention of Judge Dale to al- ways have two juries ready so that one can be hearing a case while another is out making up its verdict. There were , thirty-six jurors drawn for the regular Jaunary term. Some of them did not serve and others were drawn. If the whole number had served the twenty -two ; days the entire cist to the county for I ftes would have been 51,534. and In addi-, tion to this some of the jurors who lived , in the country were allowed mileage. It will be seen from this that the court is not so expensive as many people are led to believe. A DOCTOR'S BAD PLIGHT. "Two years ago, as a result of a se- msh tho objects of the room, but the j Vere cold, I lost my voice," writes Dr. M. L. Scarbrough of Hebron, Ohio, "then began an obstinate cough. Every remedy known to me as a practicing physician for 35 years, failed, and I daily grew worse. Being urged to try Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds, I found quick relief, and for last ten days have felt better than for two years."

JURY HAS BEEN DISCHARGED Judge IMe discharged the regular jury on Thurr i.ty morning of this week. The jurors or,!v perved twenty days for the January term of co'.rt. It was a short worth about $50. It Is said on good authority, that 4ast fall Mr. Smith came to Mr. Dudley and wanted to borrow a horse for a little rm cf co'irt so far as Jury work was ! work he had to do. Mr. Dudley, out of the kindness of his heart, let the man have one of his horses and offered him the other if he was using neither at the time. A couple of weeks later, it Is said, that Mr. Dudley went after his horse, but Smith did not have it. The question j now Is, where is that sorrel gelding with one white hind foot. 'T.eeri d.
