Tlie judge was talking to the man wlni knew il all. "I s:e," said the .•judge, "that there has been some ta in the newspapers lately about .scaffold protestations of innocence. It is argued in many cases that a man who knows lie is going to die, and that nothing on earth can save him, will not stand and deliberately tell a lie on the threshold of tlie hereafter. It is nn awful responsibility that a judge takes on himself when lie sentences a man to death. Why, I remember one •case that haunted me for a long time. A fellow named Mullen was charged with the nun-dor of his wife. There was a strong chain of circumstantial evidence. He had money, though, and his lawyers fought the ease to the bitter nnd. lie had quarreled with the woman und had threatened to kill her. He had been heard to say on tlie very day of the tragedy that he would put her out of the way. The chain was complete, with the exception of one link. There was nobody who could swear that he was at or near the house in which the woman was killed at any time near tho moment when the murder was done. "The prosecution tried in every way to get that link, but without success. The defense made their strong point on this. The intent was proved and all that, but the witnesses to this vital point were lacking. However, the jury did not hesitate long. They considered the proof of sudieiontstrength, and they convicted him. When it came time for me to sentence him that man stood up and looked me in the eye as calmly as if he was about to say 'good morning' to me. He told rae that h« was innocent, lie pointed out the flaw in the proof. He called upon Almighty God to punish me as I was about to punisli him. His speech was the most eloquent eifovt I ever heard. Still, there was nothing left for me to do but sentence him to bo lifuiged, and I did my duty. "After his sentence the man's conduct was most peculiar, lie refused to allow his lawyers to make an appeal, saying that he knew ho was innocent und lSoil know he was innocent, and that he would take no further steps to clear himself. He was culm and cool and collected up to the very minute the drop fell, lie had a minister visit him every day and he prayed with great fervor. He walked to-thc scaffold as unconcernedly as you would stroll down the street. He asked permission to make a speech, and said, standing there with the noose around his neck and with no passion or emotion in his voice, that he was innocent and that he hoped his Maker would consign him to the deepest torments of an eternal hell if lie murdered his wife or had any part or share in her murder, lie asked that the black cap be not drawn over Ms face, and he went to his death unflinchingly and with those words on his lips.'' "Huh!" said the man who knew it fill, "those experiences are common. I suppose you found out after it was too late that the man was really innocent?" "No," replied the judge gravely, "we did not. I r.side of a year we found two people who saw him go into the house just before tlio woman was killed, and one witness, a servant, who saw tho killing, but whom he frightened into silence. He was guilty. He knew he was guilty, and 3-0!he stood and defied his Maker when he was absolutely certain that his defiance would avail him nothing. I have never been able to make up my mind whether that was sublime courage or uneyualed depravity."—Buffalo Express.. You Hit the Bull's Every time When you use Every bright housekeeper wants it.

The stage has furnished many amusing 1 anecdotes, (mil has in many instances served to bring out the latent humor of tho iniissos. One of these, told of tlio actor Taillade, illustrates the aptness of the gallery god in the hour of need. Jit scorns that Tnillndu was acting in some forjrotten piece with an abnormally ponderous actress. Mile.

Lairris. noting- which one of the "fjods," t:i.].'ing- piLy on tlie superhuman efforts of his favorite actor, shouted onit: ".Make two journeys of it;" Another story which shows this same aptitude lias been told as having happened in :i concert hull not far from London. An incompetent vocalist having endeavored to sing tlie song, "For goodness' sake don't say I told you!" was promptly hit with a missile in tho shape of a small cabbage by one of tho audience in the pallcry. "Who threw that?" he howled, an- fOOPVllIGIlT. ISIII.l It is a very hacknuycd anecdote that about the French troops at Kontenoy or some other continental battlefield who said to their foes: "Gentlemen of the guard, fire first." Yet it recurs inevitably and very fitly to me, looking over tho life of Frederic Reno Coiidcrt. lie comes from French military stock, his father having been, an oflicer in tlie Napoleonic wars, who emigrated to this country after the restoration of tho Bourbons. .Perhaps it it. within tho range of possibilities that his father's father was one of that famous corps who gave their adversaries the puss in the matter of sudden death. Paradoxical as it may seem,Mr.,Coudert has been fighting- all his life, and he has practically made no enemies. The explanation is simple. It is found in that Gallic strain of invincible courtesy which says: "Gentlemen, it is our duty to kill, but that is no reason why wo should dislike each other," Instances of this are readily at band. Mr. Coudert has been in the very forefront recently of tho historic banter against the New York "state machine" organization .of the party to which ho lias been a duvoted adherent ever since he took the stump in the Lincoln-Douglas campaign. The battles . were, of course, the "anti- . It was me!" cried a voice in the gu). lory: "but Cor goodness' s;ikc, don't say I told you!"

On tho heads of most of his democratic colleagues in those revolutions the vials of "regular" wrath have been tmptied, Messrs. Peckham and Tlorn- blowor have been subjected to the humiliation of n, rejection by tlie senate of their nominations to the supreme court bench. Messrs. Anderson and Fairchilfl have been treated wilh anything but respect in the written and spoken utterances of tho "regulars." Jint Mr. Coudert has totally missed his shu.ro of the angry recriminations which those movements culled out. It is not that he is Jess prominent in his party. Save for the fact that be has never taken public office, he is more so than most of the gentlemen named, inasmuch as lie alone among them possesses a talent for popular oratory of a very rare order. His appearance upon it public platform— where he. looks so much like a French parliamentary leader that you always think of tho phrase "mounting the tribune"— is always a signal for ecstatic applause. At the great Cleveland-Hill meeting in tho campaign ot 1SH1, when both of those "kinffs'of Brentford smclled" i'or one night at least at one Flower, he was tho recipient of almost as tumultuous a greeting as tlie two rival leaders of the democracy. Jt, is not unusual to think of Mr. Coudert as French by birth- as well as descent, but as a matter of fact, he io more of a New Yorkerthan nine-tenths of the loaders of the New York bar. He wss born here in 1882 and educated n,t, Columbia college, which ho entered at fourteen, and in the first circumstance has the advantage of tlio greatest New Yorker that ever lived. Alexander Hamilton. He passed his entrance examination before he was Dlngesi the lii'ic.s of his life's work have fallen like those of most great lawyers of to-day in other and more toilsome places. His clients have, been said, perhaps extravagantly, to bo "the crowned heads of Europe." Certain it is that not the least of Mr. Condert's public services is witnessed to by tho number of foreign criminals in whose extradition ho has participated. He has been decorated by this French and Italian p-overnments. the former conferring upon him tho Cross of the Legion of Honor. To his oflicc at Nos. d8 and 70 William street, comes the cream of the legal business growing out of the enormous mercantile transactions between Piiris and New York. Hut he has never neglected the higher side of law. The greatest eminence that he ever reached in this broad field was undoubtedly his appointment last year as one of the American counsel in the Bchring sea arbitration, where, with hi* colleagues, he met the two great British advocates, the bar leaders respectively of the liberal and conservative parties, Sir Charles Russell and Sir Richard Webster. Ten years be- lore that, however, he was n. delegate to the international congress on the laws of nations, not a mere nose- rubbing function, but an arena of debate, in which he was charged by the chamber of commerce with the maintenance of the rights and the improvement of the condition of the American merchant and ship-owner. In I.S7T ho was one of the democratic lawyers commissioned to represent his party in the returning bo.'ird muddle at New Orleans. One of his services on the public »ide of his profession doubtless did not earn for him the cordial affection of the great jurist just dead, David Dudley Field." The main work of Mr. Field's vast life of work was his codes. He began drawing them when he was Jit- tic more tliau a youth. He had hardly ceased urging their adoption up to the day of his death. Slowly and with intervals of years he persuaded the legislature to adopt his civil and criminal procedure and his penal code. There remained the cap sheaf of all, his civil code. Jt was never adopted. Probably it will never be adopted now that its maste'-fnl compiler lias passed away. Its principle is rcpellant to the whole system of Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence built up through centuries by the tireless labors of the greatest niinds of the race. Ilarely can.a lawyer be found to favor it. No man but David Dudley Field could have secured the adoption of the codes Hint were adopted. And it was tlie cogent reasoning of Mr. Condert, the chosen spokesman of the liar association before the legislative committee that blocked the passage of the last of the Field codes. It i.s for this reason that Mr. Condert's pronouncement upon the question in the "interview" printed below is at once of tin- grrntest interest und importance to both lawyers and laymen. io have assumed, at least popularly of late. that because Mr. Field w;is the most ingenious and resonrcol'iil. if not the greatest lawyer of his time, and because his codes were good codes, it must be right to disregard the precedents of ages and substitute for the present system of jurisprudence that most un-American of created things, codified law.

Tlio word "interview" i.s put in quotation marks above for the reason that while that which is printed below i.s interviewing in tho sense of being- questions and answers exactly reported, it is not to be. understood that Mr. Coudert and the writer_sat down and talked a long hour by Shrewsbury clock.

After J had stated ray purpose ;md Mr. Coudert had assented to its propriety his tirst word was: "Are your questions prepared?" For answer I drew them out of my pocket.

I shall, however, try to give you in the brii-fosl possible space my views upon the subject generally without reference to tile language of tho inquiries :is put, in each instance by yourself. "I. I do not believe that 'the infill- i-nce of the growing power of corporations on the bar' has any effect, either in lowering or raising tho standard oi the profession. A corporation is simply a rich client, and whether his name isCnrsus or the (Iroat American Corporation ma.kos very little difYerence, Few lawyers (although there nre a few) confine themselves exclusively to the service of a. single corporation, and that corporation they serve, of course, wilh all possible fidelity am' steal. ••(ienerally speaking prominent lawyers are to-day for and to-morrow against these associations, nnd are as much interested in defeating as in promoting their views. I have not been able to see that the standard of the profession has been in any way affected by this circumstance. "i. That the profession has been to some extent 'commercialized' I am not prepared to deny. T 11111 inclined to think that the high professional standard has declined since the time when tiie fee was an hmiorium a.nd the counsel was prohibited by Jaw. as we!! as by his own self respect, from dragging a recalcitrant client into court, and throttling him until he disgorged a fee. "A virus of avarice lias undoubtedly been inoculated into our body, but, this is the result of general commercial causes. A life of comfort, the fascination of a. luxurious life, and a:i instinctive disposition of our guild to keep step with others in tlie race for riches have undoubtedly .modified the old spirit of our professional forefathers. Then, too. with our growing population the ranks of the bar-nave swollen in number, so as to submerge tin; old spiritof dignified and professional self- control. The lawyer wants to be rich because everybody else seeks to be rich. Young men -who would never have dreamt of professional eminence rush into the profession headlong, with vague aspirations of becoming somebody and something in the shortest possible space of timu. The majority of them, I believe, do not care so much for the prospect of a justiceship of the supreme court of the. I'nited States as of a handsome income, which will permit them to taste of those pleasures und luxuries which wealth alone can give. But others may be said to do the same. Doctors,for instance, a.nd 1 am not absolutely certain, but would not like to deny under oath, that the fashionable clergyman has been tainted by a homeopathic dose of the, poison. Yet I still claim for our profession that, relatively speaking, it is as high in comparison with the rest of the community as ever. "S. Much is said about the decline of forensic eloquence, but the proposition that true eloquence is losing its force and power is not, to my mind, true. Eloquence can neverdieorfa.il of its eiTect, if it is ren.l eloquence: that is, Midi form of speech as is best calculated to rouse and stimulate the dormnntpnssions of men. Demosthenes was eloquent, nnd so -was Lincoln: their style of oratory was different because their audience was different, {The true orator will now produce his effect whenever lie has found and is able to use the key which unlocks the breast of his listener, und subjugates that listener's will to his own. "4. 1 do not, think th.it. codification in New York has been a success. The code of civil procedure has grown from 11 timid shrinking bntiy. Hivssed i" three hundred or four hundred brief sections, into an riggrossive. si.'lf-suih- cio.nt octavo that has puzzled the courts, bullied the lawyers and ruined the clients for half a century. 1 presume, however, that prescription has given it a. place in our system, and that no efforts on the part of tho. bar. or the community, will dislodge that code. "As to tho criminal code, it has probably worked reasonably well. As punishments are arbitrarily fixed und should be certain, it is reasonable enough that an attempt should bo made to formulate into cod-; form the criminal law of the state. As the judges of our criminal tribunals seem to be satislied, 1 presume, t.bat, with occasional modifications, that system •will endure. "As to the proposition of enacting our common law into a civil code. I think Unit the good sense of our people is opposed to it. If it has taken hundreds of volumes of judicial decisions to construe rules of practice, what would it be if nil i he relations and interests of the citizen were determined or sought to be fixed in a single code'. 1 \Vhere would be the certainty of such a code, with an annuul " legislature tampering with every section upon the slightest provocation? How would the system be improved when thi! judges undertook in lengthy opinions to construe the sections? And how long would it be before the language of the code itself would be lost sight «f, and justice, discouraged and baffled, would go back to the old system to search for truth in the decisions of the courts?

The unconscionable charges which it has of late years been fashionable to make, the desperate attempt of young men to squeeze out of the chance client all that can be had short of absolute destruction, bave created a reluctance on tho part of merchants', brokers and others to enffag-e in the game of litigation. Perhaps they are wise: and yet all really important questions, where principle is involved, are best settled by the courts of justice.

WATBQUS, , ] PERFUMES AND OZONE. § « of Klectrlrit.v In II Mrtuufact .iM-eHft I.ul>or:iti>ry. The manufacturers of old and favorite brands of perfumery are just now greatly exercised by tho accounts of a new development in 1'aris. It is stated that a perfumer in that city has recently suddenly acquired a remarkable rep- illation for the super-excellence of hi« wares, which exhibit n phenomenal charm and subtlety. What fora time pcrnlexed his fellow-perfumers, who were thusdisianeed in business competition, was the fad that although Ilia sales were much ^renter than ever before, bis purchases of essential oils were much less, both in regard to quantity and variety. The, secret is now divn^cd. T!H! enterprising- perfumer had road that ozone wag used for tlie piirpo.-o of mitigating the c-ruiiilies of new wines and spirits and tempering and softening their jlavor, and lie thought he would try its elTcct on perfumes. Kitting up his labornrv wilh the needful electrical appliances, he sci lo work, and soon found that the odor of essential oils could be surprisingly modilied by the action of oxone. and that by the skillful combination of spirits and essences and their treatment with the oxoniser, he could vary their delicacy or power at will. Jf this discovery should prove to be trustworthy a vast field is opened to the perfumer, who will now need but to lay in a stock of alcohol and bcrgamotto turn out essences of lha widest range, from the stimulating 111]id that is more pungent, than the strongest L'roma.tic vinegar to the scent-laden drops that intoxicate the senses like the morning- air when the orange trees nre white with bloom.— N.
