A Judge Who Staffed Cotton In His
Ears While the Co iuxtl Npobe.
Yesterday's Charlotte Observer
had an editorial regarding a report
that at a recent term of Graham
county Superior Court, Judge Robs,
inson, who was on the bench, sent
out, got some cotton and stuffed it
into his ears during a speech to the
jury by Kope Elias, who was de
fending a man for murder.
It is alsb said that at another time
His Honor left the bench, lit his
p,t.c and went out of the rooai for
a smoke while Lie eamo gentleman
was speak in g.
The Observer, always very con
servative, goes on to state that such
a story is improbable and cannot be
It does look so to a "man up a
treV but as a matter of fact, it is
true. A gentl oman in Greensboro,
present at iho same court, pays
Judge Robinson tent tho sheriff
out after cotton, but he returned
and said he could find none. Then
His Honor turned to tho Greens
boro gentleman and asked if lie
could not get it for him. Ho said
ho thought h.3 could ami vll out,
returning with it in a few minutes,
when tho Judge at once stuffed both
ears full, full, keeping the cotton
there until Ei;as finished sneaking,
when he removed it.
Tho other story about leavin;; the
bench and going out for a emoko is
also true, for tho Gre ensboro man
nays he was out with him and both
enjoyed a smoke.

INCORPORATE THE ASYLUM
That Was the sense of the Grand
todse, IThich Jlct in RpJeigh.
Raleigh Press-Visitor ; . The
Grand Lodge of Masons met here in
special session last evening for the
purpose of taking such steps as
would ensure to the Orphan Asylum,
at Oxford, the bequest of $26,000
left it in Minneapolis real estate by
the late Mr. Bradley, of California.
On th8 suggestion of the order's at
torney, F H Busbee, Esq., cf RaN
eigh, the Orphanage was ordered in
co porated; the board of directors
are to be nominated by the Mnscris
and appointed bj the Governor.
This arrangement leaves the Masons
practically in control, 83 before the
Some of the members came here
chinking that a provision in Mr.
Bradley's will make the incorpora
tion necessary ; and that when in
corporated, the institution would
pass from Masonic control. The
love for the Orphanage of the Ma
sons of this State was well showed
by the declaration of these men that
they would vote against incorpora
tion, if the bequest, under such con
ditions, was a hundred thousand
The will of Mr. Bradley is being
fought by hii heirs in California
and Minneapolis, they claiming that
he was not in sound mind when the
will was made.
The matter will be decided within
the next several months.

Why They Io So.
It is a generally accepted fact that
horses are unwilling to leave a barn
when on fire. If one is gotten out
and not cairied ofi or placed under !
surveillance, he will go back.
This seems strange, but it is rue.
The explanation, however, makes it
clear, and it is this :
A horse's stall or gtable is his
home; he soon learns it is a place
where he is taken care cf fed,
groomed and looked after where
he 13 secure fom danger of any

Take a runaway horee and if he

So it is in the time of fire ; he ha3

In this a horse is much like a hus
man. Deserteis in time of the war
always came home when they knew
that by so doing they were more
likely to be caught. A baby,
frightened at anything, seeks its
mother's arms, first, last and all the
A good plan, in trying to get a
horse out of a burning barn, ia' to
throw a blanket oyer his head, thus
blindfolding him. If not already
scarod out of his wits he will come
out, but he should be looked after
then; if not he will leturn.
1 I'eSfVar Boy.
A little bare-footed, thinly clad,
bright eyed boy struct town this
morning and was on the pan-handle,
llis tale of how his mother and
brother had died in Kentucky was a
pitiful one, but the sadder part was
when he spoke of his afflicted parent
yet alive, though on the verge of the
grave, who, from exhaustion and
privation of comforts of life and
lack of attention lay npon the plaN
form at the depot coughing and
blreding from hemorrhage of the
lui:g3. After a tour of the city, with
a iew cents and a bundle of cold
victuals, the boy and his father
-ivard on do'-vn the railroad, head
ing for Charleston, vbere they have
relatives, so they say.
