absent from home once when he started
around nn the circuit, leaving the Judge
to pack his clothes for the trip. He did
so, but instead of finding his shirts, he
seized a pile ot his wife's what's-you-call-eins,
used for a like purpose. A learned
brother who roomed with hi 111, was much
amused a few mornings afterwards, at
the queer appearance of the Judge; no
thing being in sight hut his head, arms
and foot, his look of bewilderment and
his sottor voice reflections, which were "
wtmiier what on earth innd cut off

that he heard the reason the inext time he
saw liett y, but not before, as the bar kept
dark on the matter (to him) that round.
