Just what i thought, so I told 'em to
put up some sandwiches and a flask
or brandy and water, and to make the

forehead acquainted with the shafts of

Murgatroyd clapped him on the
Hy Jove, Jordan, you're a better chap
than I took you for; 1 don't know
what I should have done without you.
That's so, responded Jordan modestly. Vou wouldn't have been nowhere

He's as deep as a well, and ns dirty
as ditch-water. You don't see through
him while Jack Robinson is said, I
can tell you. But lor, bless you, Jimmy is not so innocent neither; and
Jordan winked, as If anticipating a
favorable verdict from an impartial
jury of his countrymen,
There, that's the stride o; my beauty on the gravel. Muller's mare can
step along���or else it wouldn't do for
him; but While Fetlocks can go one

.Murgatroyd went, down-stairs in
three bounds, followed iib rapidly by
his valet, who hail been packing his
master's things while he talked.
The bill was ready; anil so were the
sandwiches. In three minutes the
one was paid, and the other pitched
Into the dogcart. A hoy from the
stable who had brought White Fetlocks round, rode behind with Jordan
to bring back the trap. They were
en route for Ihe terminus. The horse
was fresh, and required steadying
rather than urging. It was a hunting morning, keen, clear, with a white
frost and mist lying all along the landscape. White Fetlocks chafed at the
shafts���she wanted a rid r on her
back. Murgatroyd held the reins
and set his hat well down on his
bead. The pace was terrific. The
hedgerows spun by them, and hills
seemed to make no difference. They
came lo a small village, through which
tlie dogoart passed at a hand-gallop.
Some sleepy fowls scattered In all
directions. The last house was a
farm. In n shed a man was milking
cows with a rough sheep dog lying
handy. The dog resented the intrusion of the party; for he rushed out,
almost, between the legs of the horse,
harking violently. It was too much
for the nerves of White Fetlocks.
I The horse just reared and then shied
violently, when its four legs were on
terra firnia again. One wheel of the
dogcart, mounted tbe opposite hank;
Murgatroyd brought the whlj. down
smartly ou ibe horse's hack, just in
Mine, it started off. and fortunately
ihe dogcart did not turn over; hut it
I was the narrowest squeeze of an accl-
| dent���and a serious one-man ever
i had.
Jordan held lhe boy by tlie collar
the moment the horse reared, otherwise lie would have fallen out. Tbe
boy was white as a sheet.
Steady, youngster; don't cry till
your bones are broke.
White Fetlocks was running away;
there was no mistake about, that. Murgatroyd twisted the ulnB round bis
wrist, and maui.ged to guide the horse
although he could not, check the speed
of the animal. Fortunately they neither met nor passed anything. After
going at top speed for two miles, the
road wound up a steep hill. Beyond
the hill lay Bishops Monkiand, on the
outskirts ot which town was ihe station. The horse was by this lime
thoroughly blown, and stopped dead
at. the hill. It was now Murgatroyd's
business to urge it. on. Tbey had
seen nothing of a trap in front of
lie cannot have gone any other way,
or to any other station? Murgatroyd
asked Jordan, but warily, because of
ihe hoy. who was now whistling cheerfully to himself, as a sign no doubt
that he had recovered his equilibrium.
Certain. He must have come with
a wrt sheet as the nautical chaps say.

next week.
Yes, sir, said the boy.
Tbe responsibility of White Fetlocks was evidently weighing on his
youthful conscience beforehand, for
be had left off whistling.
Directly tbey hud begun the descent
of the hill on the opposite side, Jordan, who was standing at the back of

They Thrive on Grape-Nuts
Healthy babies don't cry and the
well-nourished baby that is fed on
Grape-Nuts Is never a crying baby.
Many babies who cannot take nny
other food relish Ihe perfect food,
Grape-Nuts, and get well.
"My baby was given up by three
doctors who said that the condensed
milk ou which 1 had fed her had ruined tho child's stomach. One of the
doctors told me that the only thing to
do would bo to try Grape-Nuts, so 1
got some and prepared It aa follows:
I soaked 1'<. tablespoonfuls In one
pint of cold water" for half an hour,
then I strained off lhe liquid and mixed 12 leaspoonfuls of this strained
Grape-Nuts juice with six teaspoon-
fuls of rich milk, put in a pinch of
salt and a little sugar, warmed it and
gave It to the baby every two hours.
Tn this simple, easy way I saved
baby's life and have built her up to
a strong, healthy child, rosy anil
laughing. The food must certainly
be perfect to have such a
wonderful effect as this. 1 can
truthfully say I think it is the best
food in the world to raise delicate
babies on and is also a delicious
healthful food for grown-ups as we
have discovered in our family."
Grape-Nuts is equally valuable to
the strong, healthy man or woman.
It. stands for the true theory of Health.

in the little book, "The Road to Well-

HOW mO^lMl&CffKliOT
A citizen of tho world wishing to spend a holl*
day at Banff, in the heart of the Western Canadian Rockies or to mako a business journey
along the linos of the Canadian Pacific Railway
rents his sleeping car berth, boards the train,
lives and eats In luxurious surroundings while
being whirled across the continent! and has
Little idea of the fastness of tha enterprise upon
which he bostows his patronage, nor of the
tremendous system which must be maintained
In order that he and others, likewise minded,
may travel in such safety, comfort and luxury.
For Instance ho goes to bed and does not know
that an army of men four thousand strong is
employed by that Dining and Sleeping Car
Department. He Is not aware that tho same
company could, within five days, transport an
army of thirty thousand people from Vancouver
to Halifax, giving each a sleeping berth and
supplying; ninety thousand meals a day, or
practically half a million on the five day Journey
across the continent. Again, he does not realise
that, If the dining and sleeping cars ot the
Canadian Pacific Railway wero made up into a
single train with a locomotive stationed at
Ir.'&rvala ten coaches apart, that that train would
be fourtoon miles long. To man this city on
wheels would require an army of three thousand
dining and stooping car attendants with several
hundred additional men at terminals to handle
supplies for them. This is exclusive ot the
thousand men who would be operating the train
In the capacity of brakemon, conductors, firemen
and engineers, a total aboard in all of 34-00
It would tako a great deal of space to tell how
the Canadian Pacific Railway takes coro of that
public which patronizes its lines and how also
it takes co.ro of thoso omployees whose duty it
Is to minister to the comfort of that public.
Yet the C.P.R. has taken many steps in that
ii.-ectiou and it is safe to say that In a dozen
particulars it stands ahead of any road on the
continent when It comes to treating its dining
and sloepng car employees humanely and sanely.
Theso men are as desirable a class of public li
norvaut as can be found iQ any private house*
from tho point of view of efficiency, personal
t-leanlinoBs aud freedom from danger of spread^
lug diaestno. Tho company is as considerate
of its men ai it ia of tho general public and it
Is fully awaro that such a course is simple
" goodbuniness."
Certainly tho most colossal task that presents
Itjelf to tho C. P. R. is that of provisioning Us
dining cars to food the hungry multitudes who
vross their thresholds oach meal hour. It is
ast imattid that in the summer season the C. P. R.
serves on an average twenty thousand meals
a day on its cars. For many years tho company
has boon grappling with tho problem of supplying; this enormous demand in a way that would
insure to the Ronor.il public absolutely clean
and perfectly wholesome meals and only now
has tho company come to believe that it has the
situation completely in hand. ���
The lirst problem that presented itself was to
have securo a really assured and permanent
source of supply* To attain this and, incidentally, to show farmers in various districts
the possibilities of their lands when scientifically worked, demonstration farms wero atartod
throughout tha Dominion. These supply
absolutely fresh provisions to the chain of commissary stores stretching across the continent
and giva tha Canadian Pacific Railway the
assurance ot a permanent supply at cost prices,
tn this an absolutely radical departure was
made in that tho C. P. R. actually owns and
operates the forms which supply it with pro*
The advantage ot this is not for to Kek. Fresh
jnilk and cream will soon bo secured in whatever
quantities are desired. A sufficiently large
number ot poultry can be kept to supply all
requirements tor table fowl and eggs. To Insure freshnoss in the eggs used on dining cars
tha product is gathered from the neat (au eggs
are non-fertile by the way) stamped with the
date, and then packed in cartons and sealed for
delivery to commissary stores. Milk and cream
are not handled in bulk, After being thoroughly
pasteurized the products aie placed in sealed
bottles and those are opened in the presence
of the passenger with the day and date of milking
fight on the bottle. Similar care is taken ta
Insure absolute cleanliness in all other demonstration farm products.
Fruits and vegetables form a large Item on
dining car menu. Tho Canadian Pacific Railway Imports these from all parts of the world
and offers them on Its tables before they are
available elsewhere, and then, when the
Canadian products are ready the preference is
fiven them. In fact the company specializes
n the famous fruits and vogotables of British
Columbia and contracts for these products for
the entire requirements, especially apples and
potatoes, for this service for all western lines one
year In advance. The quality ot these fruit.,
such as apples, plums, cherries, poors, and
vegetables,such as celery and potatoej now stxads
highest in the continent,
Ona really obstinate p'gMeni has cor.frouted
the Canadian Pacific and that has been tha
supplying of fresh bread and pastry to its patrons
���bread and pastry of such a quality that tha
shield and beaver trademark would be its guar*
antee. Many experiments have been tried butt
that degree of success desired by the company
is only now being attained. Final upon all
plans comes the announcement on this years
appropriation list to the effect that the company
will Install a chain of modern bakeshops at such
terminal points between Halifax and Vancouver
as would Insure a complete re-stocking of din in*
oars with fresh bread, cakes and pastry ever?
fifteen hours. Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg,
Moose Jaw, Calgary and Vancouver are to have
such railroad bakeshops as will several other
points not yet definitely decided upon.
The care of meats, milks, vegetables and
perishable goods for the twenty thousand people
who must be fed daily by this one railway requires most elaborate refrigerator plants. All
refrigeration Is done artificially and the scientifically perfect degree of coldness is maintained
to preserve the goods and so to maintain highent
Modern'medical science, both prevent!?*
and curative, has reduced Itself to practically
ono only science -bacteriology -with the allied
art ot preventing disease bugs from finding lodgment In any place that comes in contact with
human beings, mere particularly to keep all
human food free from exposure to these germs.
Recognizing this, the Canadian Pacific Railway
has worked out an elaborate system of individual
service, reducing the handling of food to a minimum. All bread, cakes, pastry, pie, pudding*,
etc., are prepared in Individual orders : in fact
this system ls extended to cover all possible
service ; even ice cream, which ls made under
most sanitary conditions, is prepared in individual portions, each portion wrapped In special
case to prevent handling:
On�� of the first cares of the Canadian Paciflo
Railway is to see that all Its employees are physically healthy and clean and to this end it has
been deemed expedient to establish a ch^in
of homes for tho dining and sleeping car men
over the entire continent. The C. P. R. ls tho
only railroad corporation today which provides
this class of employees vita free lodgment and
bed when away from home. At all large terminals such as Toronto, Winnipeg, Mooso Jaw,
Calgary and Vancouver these dining car and
sleeping car omployees aro boucod by tha
company. In establishing this system tha
management hod one mala idea In view. It
would be able to giva tha general public tha
assurance that every employee had a physique
free from disease, because all are subjected
to a periodic medical examination, and it
would Itself then be in a position to assume
responsibility for the cleanliness of employees.
Under the system that prevails on the C.P.R.
it is Impossible for a dining or sleeping car
employee to go out on a run, as It is called,
without, first having taken a bath and gotten
his clothes newly cleaned and pressed fres of
any cost to the employee.
Nor ls the Canadian Pacific Railway inspired
by solely business motives in this work. Tha
company ls not a "soulless corporation" In
dealing with Its men. On the contrary, the
homes, as the Illustrations will show, are an
embodiment of tho cozy home spirit. Comfortable nooks and corners abound. All are scientifically ventilated and managed by competent
caretakers. Libraries, bathrooms, Including
showers, large windows and indeed all tha addenda of the modern homo are present, and
everything ls spotlessly clean. Thus, when a
C. P. R. man is away from home he is under the
company's care. And so it comes about that
C. p. R, omployees would pass medical inspection to report for duty In any hospital. If oc-
cislon for their service arose. The result of all
this care shows In the health of the employe*
by going out from the terminal rested, in good
health and In every way prepared to care tor 6fe��

Some one hns apparently blundered in this military demonstration.
The question is being asked will

portion of the cost of having the

As well as suffer tlie inconvenience
and mortification of seeing the

Not content with shutting off the

down and forbid the merchants
selling powder and shot or cartridges. This may be good tactics
in time of war, but it is not the
most comforting incident in this

Notwithstanding the fact that
there is a large notice painted on
the bridge warning all persons to
walk their horses over it, one day
last week one of the soldiers,
quartered at Cumberland, rode his
horse at full speed across the
bridge, lawmakers should not be

seen any civilian doing this lie would
have been haled before a magistrate and fined. Luckily for the

there is no other medicine, so good as
Dr. Williams' Phlk l'ills.    Every dose

drives  out  disease  and  brings again
the bloom of health to pale and sallow

owe their present good health to the
timely use of Dr. Williams' Pink l'ills.
Among those who bave been restored
io health by this great, medicine is
Miss Hose Neville, Mount forest, Oul.,
who says;  "Dr.   Williams' Pink Pills
performed  almost a  miracle  in  my
c��30.     I was a victim of anaemia, in
what my friends considered a dangerous form.      1 was very pale, always
felt tired out,   suffered   from   severe
headaches,  and  bad  no  appetite.   1
was  taking  doctor's  medicine  for  a
long lime���In fact 1 tried two doctors
���but Instead of improving 1 seemed to
be growing worse.     My parents were
at a loss lo know what to do for me
and thought I would nol recover. Then
a friend advised Dr.  Williams' Pink
Pills and 1 had only taken them a few-
weeks when I began to feel better.
This greatly encouraged me and I con-
llnuid taking the Pills for some time
longer,  and   found   my  liealih  again
as good as ever it had been.    In fact
I am stronger than ever 1 was before.
I have advised the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills to other girls who
have found the results, equally beneficial."

Ibau 1 can tell.
The Town of Jump Off.
Two years ago' I exhibited my moving pictures at the town ot Jump Off,
which was founded as a future rival
of Chicago and bad seven murders and
nine elopements the first year. When
1 showed the picture of General Washington at Valley Forge���emaciated,
���tarred, discouraged and almost ready
lo trade American Independence for a
pumpkin pie���there was n breathless
silence in the audience for n minute,
end then sobs and tears broko forth
from every point of tbo hall. Men
who bad not shed a tear when Ihelr

some cases, as 1 afterward learned, did
not lake n hand nt poker for the next
two weeks. 1 was told of women that
went homo and wept for throo days
end could not be comforted and of Utile children (bat wanted to send their
food lo the starving patriots.
Last week I got around to sirow my
pictures In the same town again. Tlicre
wns a still larger audience, and I
lliotight I observed an Increased look
of reverence on their faces. After collecting my statistics as to lhe number
of cucumbers per aero raised In that
part of Kansas this year I mounted
the platform nud started tho 6how
with tho same old pictures. It was
Washington silting In bis log bouse nt
Valley Forge. Ho was the most sorrowful looking skeleton ever exhibited
to the public outside of nn anatomical
museum. I expected great results, and
I got 'em. Instead of tears and silence
snd sobs, the picture no sooner appeared on the canvas than Irreverent
voices called out:
'".���"nt blm up!"
"Feed hhu pudding and mllkl"
"Give him'chop siieyl"
"Hey, George, old boy, Where's your
fried oysters?"
My grief and astonishment can hnrd-
ly be Imagined, As I looked at the
audience In n reproachful way tbe audience continued to hoot nnd guy, at*)
1 hart to tnno tne picture ou. raw
audience even booted mc. I iiien es-
lilhltcd a picture of Satan walking arm
In arm with n Boston alderman Hint
bad sold his veto for J'J.tXiO, and there
was applause lusting seven uiltilltcs.
I Had Great Hopes.
The next picture wns Faith clinging
to the cross. I hnd great hopes that
(Ills would bring the audience back
Into lhe straight and narrow path, but
was doomed to disappointment she
was advised to go borne and go to
darning stockings, nnd when I would
have expressed   my  surprise  ut  such
sacrilege some one ttirew a turnip and
hit me on (ho Jaw.
From tbenco on I exhibited only pic-
turcs showing tbat tho wages of sin
aro from four to teu dollars a day, wltb
board and washing and (beater tickets
thrown In, and tbo nudlcuco went wild
with enthusiasm. 1 could not close my
eyes to the Tact thnt the drift of lhe
limes was toward wickedness nnd that
tlio traveling agents of family lllbles
must bo living ou onions nud sleeping
In fence corners.
Next day, while I was driving over
Hie highway from Jump Off to Stop
Here, 1 inol a cavalcade. My Innocent
fnce. venerable wblnknre and hearing Insure mo respect. In most enses
lhe cavalcade removes Its bats nnd
bows low before inc. In this case ns n
sign of the degeneracy of the limes Iho
Stvulcado balled, and Hie leader asked
lie what 1 would take lor my whisk-
*a"��. I hud not yet recovered from my
iMtonlsliment when another mini dismounted und climbed up on tho wheel
or my wagon aud actually gave a tug
at my whiskers to see If they were
false. Then they called me old man
and old boy anil old hoss, and one of
Ihcm tiled to spit tobacco juice In my
fighting dog's eyes. As I drove on it
just did seem to me tbat the end of the
world wus ut hand. In Imagination 1
could see tbe destruction of Sodom and
bear tho yells of Its perishing inhabitants.
A Spirit of Levity.
Having reached tbo town itself, I observed that a spirit of levity and gay-
ety pervaded the place; hut, tbougb It
might be owing to tbe fact tbat thero
was a man In towu from Denver trying to sell folding bathtubs and hairbrushes, I opened my show by Introducing Pilgrim .loo's Alternative, which
is a well known remedy for drawing
folks back from tbo grave. 1 bad
scarcely announced tbut the price still
remained 25 cents, notwithstanding the
panic, when a crowd begau to hoot,
lu selling this alternative I usually tell
a little story. It Is about u fond mother whose sunny haired little boy gets
In the way of a brick bouse aud Is
crushed (o a pulp. The mother sits
grieving over tho remains nnd wnlllug
out that there Is uo moro happiness
for ber ou tbls earth when au angel
comes flying down wltb a bottle of my
Justly celebrated remedy In tier baud.
Sho pats tbo grieving mother on her
head and tben sprinkles some of tbe
alternative over the remains of tbe
child. In five minutes be Is chasing
grasshoppers and tho mother Is laughing In glee nnd wondering wbeu the
next circus will como along.
Seeing Hint tbe crowd at Stop Hera
was u little out of humor, I started
In to tell this slory, but It brought missiles Instead of tenrs uud smiles. A,
majority of those missiles collided wltb j
my sacred body, and for the only time
In thirteen years I was somewhat em- j
barrussed. I passed tbe picture along
and substituted "The Discovery of
America." No good. They threw tobacco cuds at Christopher as ho stood ;
and gazed upon America. 1 substituted
"Two Orphans," but the ragged and
starving little girls, wandering around
In n snowstorm at night In search of
fodder and sympathy, were advised to
cut It out. lu desperation I changed
to the most sacred picture In the collection, which represents a field of battle at night, after tbe lighting. Thero
are dead and wounded scattered about,
and Instead of being on their roosts
und usleep thousands ot buzzards ore
hovering o'er tbo sceno. There lire
nugels there weeping o'er the dead or
praying with tbo wounded and other
uugcls with clubs wbneklug away at
the buzzards.
Produced Tears and Sobe.
Wben I exhibited this picture Iu the
towns of Step High, Go On, Merry h
nnd Wbo Cores there wero such tears
und sobs as produced u wave of Influenza nil through tbe state, and hundreds of men rode from ten to fifty
miles lo (ell mo that they would not
enlist lu Ibe army If Japan licked us
ten times over.
On Ibis occasion, however, the picture was received In frozen silence.
This lasted about a minute, and then
tho audience began to guy. Tbo sacred angels were advised to try this or
that breakfast food nnd to put on tailor made gowns nnd wear "Merry Widow" hats, and wben 1 stepped to Hie
front nnd protested agalust such sacrilege there were shouts for me to pull
down my vest nnd get off tho earth,
I bare no desire to pose us a discoverer or explorer or to muke my fellow
man out worse tban be Is, but my con<
vlctjons n.re!

Song of the Telegraph Wiree.
A new theory of tbe singing of telegraph wires has been offered by Professor Field of tbe University of Ottawa. No explanation yet given
seems to have been perfectly satisfactory, nnd the suggestion is now
mnde thnt tho sounds represent mlnuto
earth Vibrations, which are transmitted to tho wires through the poles.
These vibrations depend largely on
varying nlr pressure. The song of the
wires, therefore, may give good barometric signals, a sharp sound Indicating that a change Is close at hand,
while a low humming shows thnt present conditions may continue a day or
perhaps two.
Knew What to Do.
A trolley car bad butted Into k pedestrian, who was knocked prone.
Others who were passing, thinking tbe
accident might be serious, rushed te
the assistance of the fallen man.
"Are yon much hurt?" asked a well
Intentloned Individual who helped tbe
victim to his feet. "Shall I get a doctor for you?"
"Doctor nothing!" replied the other.
"Guess you don't know much about
trolley accidents. Get me a lawyer "���

tome English Household! Are Nearly
Recently two extraordinary cmes of
very numerous offspring in lhe mine
family were recorded in lhe Kuglieh
press, and these attracted great et,
tention at the time. One wns that of
Mr. nnd Mrs. Rogers, ol Chiswick,
who can boast a family of no fewer
than twenty-nine "little" ones, though
these are hy tro mothers, the present
Mrs. Rogers being the second wile of
Mr. Cliailes of that ilk, who is a
well-known builder in the district.
j'J'ha proud father, aged seventy-four,
might have been seen carrying his latest infant to its baptism a week or
two ago, and Chiswick supporters did
due honor to the occasion.
The other case was that ol Mr. T. A.
Slack, ol Purley, Surrey, who, curiously enough as a coincidence, can
also claim to be the lather of twenty-
nine children j and in this instance
the writer believes, too, lhat Mr. Slack
can boast that these "thirty save one"
nn  still   all alive.
Capital ns these examples nre. as
showing that even In this nge of
bishops and judges who rail at the
decaying birth-rate, yet tbe nation is
not wholly going to the dogs in this
mutter, the instances mentioned do
net form anything like a "record"
for the country in this lashinn.
[ There was that stalwart Scot bail.
,ing from Cromarty, Mr. Thos. Urqu
]hart, who was not only the lather of
thirty-six children, but had the supreme satisfaction of living to see a
large number ol them gain very high
.positions and become quite eminent.
'Of the thirty-six no fewer than twenty-
'live were sons���quite an unusual proportion of the kind.
I Sunderland just now seems to be
itrying to either break the record in
'anotlier way, or lo quality in decent
time for a place umongst the notables
^already mentioned. For tbe wife ol a
small shop-keeper in the Wearside
town last month presented hor spouse
with twins, which would have satisfied
most fond parents as the product of
one twelve months. However, when
it is learned lhat tbis same good lady
had already borne another set of
twins less than a year previously ono
may he forgiven for saying that, at
the rate of "four a year" to such a
'youthful couple, the claims of Mr.
Rogers, Mr. Slack, or even Mr. Urquhart, appear In much danger of being
.Boon excelled.
In the annals of "Numerous Children," by Boyle, there is a case given
ot a Paris lawyer who had no fewer
than forty-fivei and history also states
that, a baker In France could boast
of twenty-one children, bom nt seven
births, and all within the astonishing
short space of seven years What a
family this would have been for winning the good graces of the prelate ol
London, or tho former lilshop ol
Rlpon I
Of course, the actual "record," eo
f-r as authentic history can give it at I
all, surely belongs to Signora Grants, j
tho wife ol an Italian living at Barcelona,    This  real  "mother In  Israel"
did  her  duty  so  nobly to  Iho  state
that, at the a; e of sixty, she could
look round nnd count something like
forty-nine olive branches who were as
delighted as possible to call her "mo-1
ther."    Slgnora   Granta  undoubtedly.
holds the record still; an", our English parents of twenty-nine���nay, even
tbo Scottish oops of thirty-six ��� will
have a long nsy to go to overtake it. .

Shrewsbury, Eng., was at one per j
lod represented by a member singularly neglectful of his Parliamentary
duties.    John   Mytton,  who  was   returned  for  the borough  in, 1819,  remained  in  the  House  only  half an
hour  after  he  had  taken   the  oath, ���
and  then  left,  never  to  set loot  in
St.   Stephen's   again.    This   solitary
visit to the House cost him  $50,000
'in  election  expenses.
!   Mytton resigned his Beat the following  year,   but  stood  for  Shropshire
twelve years later, when ho bad run ,
'through all his money.   In his election address he stated: "I have now ,
no  wife,   no  family,  no  hounds,   no |
horses���somo will  say  no steadiness
of puryose���but feeling that I can devote  myself to your  service  I  offer

A Labouchere Anecdote,
A Lab��-uchere anecdote which has
not been done to death is given to
the new volume ol recollections, by
Bir Henry Lucy ("Toby, M,P,"), to
whom it was told by Labby himself.
It concerned the younger son of a
peer, who thought that a berth In the
piplomatio Service was tn desirable
a place as any for one who took life
rather easily, He knew nothing o{ the.
special subjects upon which the ore-
liminary examination was based, out
there was at \ei;t the promise ot Sj
lark, As far as ho could make out,
he did not suprly a sit.gle correct
answer to the long list ol questions.
Nevertheless, he came out first in the
competition, It was a surprise even
for a confident young lordling, Meel-
ing one of the examiners st a dinnet
a few days later, he ventured, to ask
how tho thing came about, "We at
once saw you knew nothing," was, lha
reply, "But your manner waa so free
from constraint under what to some
people would have been peculiarly
embarrassing circumstances that we
said to each other, "That's the very
man to make a diplomatist,' So we
gave you a start on your career,"
