But as the bottle was pushed across ths counter, McCloud swung his rifle- butt and knocked the bottle into slivers. "Drinks for the crowd!" he said, with an ugly laugh. "Get down and lap it up off the floor, you fox cubs!"

Vest of Missouri, was made in the course of a trial of a man who had wantonly shot -a 'flog belonging to a neighbor. Vest represented the plaintiff, who demanded $200 damages. When Vest finished speaking the jury, after two minutes' deliber- ation, awarded the plaintiff $500. The full text of the speech fol- lows: "Gentlemen of the jury— The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy." His son or daughter that he has reared with loving care may prova un- grateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with ou.* happi- ness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose.
