who was shrewd enough to show
contempt of court without incur

would have been visited upon an
offender loss diplomatic. He was
at one time being hoard in an
important matter before the Su

judges: "That is not the law.

ViiOY 3IASSEY ON WHEAT AND CORN
In the September Bulletin
Prof. Massev has an article on
the preparation of land for wheat
and corn that we hope our far
mers will read. They should all
have the Bulletin and can get
it for the asking. In the article
Prof. Massey takes the position,

"Just a moment," interrupted
the Supreme Justice himself; "do
you mean to say that you are
reading good law?"
"Not at all, Your Honor; only
Supreme Court decisions."
The most cutting thing he ever
said to this same court was dur
ing the consideration of a dos
perate case in which he had not
a leg to stand upon. He made a
bold contention which was fal-
acious but plausible from be-
crinnincr to end.
