Chicago, May 26, 1896.

To the Editor:  —In a recent issue of the Journal I noticed that Dr. Martin Matter is again not only assailing Bracelin's bactericide, but indulging himself in a series of sinister-handed compliments concerning me personally. A wily but unscrupulous old lawyer at one time was giving what he termed " valuable pointers " to a younger member of the profession in handling a jury, which were as follows:

  1. If the facts in the case are in your favor and the law against you, stick to the facts and say nothing about the law.

  2. If the law is in your favor and the facts against you, stick to the law and disregard the facts.

  1. If the law and the facts are both against you, ignore both and vigorously abuse your opponent and his client.

In this way you will take the minds of the jurors away from the merits
