11 p.m.
Rarely had the House of Commons
been so stirred on the opening night
of a session. The formalities of moving and seconding tlie Address having
been gone through with the usual complimentary speeches from tlie loaders
on botlt sides, Mr. Thompson-Halllday
rose to move his amendment, from below the gangway. Not only was every seat occupied, but members stood
on every    available    vantage-ground.
The heir to tho throne looked on at
the animated scene witli sympathetic
curioslly from the Distinguished
Strangers' Gallery, where several of
Sir Richard llanley's colleagues in the
Upper House were also silting. The
Pioneer was in every one's hands. It
had come out very strong.In favor of
the Government; but, In wis respect,
It stood alone. The Opposition journals were jubllianty aggressive; the
papers on the Government side were
ambiguous and wavering. Sir Richard Hanley sat at one end of the front
bench, facing the table. His hat
Bhaded his eyes, and beyond a certain
gravity, his look failed to'Indicate the
ultimate trend of debate and division.
He was the cynosure of all eyes; hut
long training had steeled him against
the outward indication of any emotions. Yet was It a vital occasion.
The symmetry of a life, long lived before the public, honorable and successful beyond the lot of even the front
rank of public men, was about to be
either completed, or for ever marred.
���Which it would be, hardly one in that
great assembly knew. Hanley, as
everyone knew, was the mainspring,

and Ilie Government were with hint to

But if sir Richard Hanley was the
cynosure of all eyes, not less so was
Mr.  Tlioiupsou-llalllilny,  as  lie  stood
flushed with approaching triumph and
self-consciousness to move till; resolution.
Indirectly It had gol about that this
was the payment of some vague debt
of obligation. No one could hnve
told the story, but it was In tlie ulr;
and while It helped to vulgarise and
belittle Halliday, it. served to raise his
victim lo the pinnncle of personal appreciation.
Halliday had a dlflicult task lo perform, and he did it wllh adroitness,
and a certain amount of fact. It was
his business to harry the Government
and yet not tj offend the patriotism
of tho House. Halliday had no intention of posing as a Little Kngland-
er. That would endanger his popularity In his constituency, and might
lose hlni his seat. So lie adopted
a magnanimous tone. There an attractive flavor of patriotic and politic
generosity. Kngland was credited
abroad Willi grasping proclivities. Her
systematic policy of universal expansion was misunderstood. Hence her
general unpopularity and Isolation.
Much of thiB arose from misunderstanding, with, of course, a substantial substratum of jealousy. All the
more reason that when she was in the
wrong, or even in c position of doubtful legality���as was the case In the
question under discussion���she should
take the strong and liberal course of
gracefully yielding, displaying her regard for the comity of doubtful, and
at the worst untenable. Where were
tho proofs that the territory in question, within the lines the Government
had laid down, had ever recognized the
away of British dominion?
Once only Thompson-Halliday lost
his magnanimous tone. It. was when
his speech became personal to the
minister who had led the Government,
the House, and country into tills despicable imbroglio, The lion, member
sketched the attitude of the minister
in words of fiery scorn. It was with
him a matter of personal ambition, of
the strong will asserting itself against
the better judgment of his colleagues,
and of the Prime Minister. Mr. Halliday dissociated Sir Richard Hanley
with a certain sharp acumen from the
rest of the Cabinet, and wound up by
saying���Proofs! Proofs! We ask for
proofs. Show us by one genuine document; such as the public can understand, apart from any legal chicanery,
and we withdraw our motion; we yield
our opinion; we subscribe our allegiance, and England, of all parties and
both sides of this House, stand shoulder to shoulder together.
After Mr. Thompson-Halliday's motion had been briefly seconded, In an
apologetic speech, by an independent
member on the Government side of the
House, Sir Richard Hanley rose to reply. Before doing so, he deposited
certain documents on the table before
The speech began with an almost
pathetic reference to the responsibility of the statesman to whom the honor of England was entrusted In the
face of a difficult situation, where a
false step could never be recovered,
where there was doubt and difficulty
on both sides, and right was obscured.
In one sense, he added, it does not
make it easier to have the most loyal
colleagues���hero he turned to his
more Immediate supporters and received an eager, responsive cheer���
who are willing to believe in the individual judgment of the minister entrusted with that special department
of administration, and to stand by his
decisions. Yet, he added, I should
be sorry to forfeit that confidence, nor
could a man standing in my place
tork with effect for his country unless
he had that confidence and comparatively a free hand. It is easv for the
hon. member who moved the resolution before the House to lay down laws
as to abstract rights, and to speak of
generosity towards States smaller and
less powerful than our3elves; but
there are fifty thousand people to be
considered, who have learnt to look to
this country for protection, for good
government, for the certitude of civil
and religious liberty. It is not my
place, speaking as a Minister of the
Crown, to say one word deprecialive

I'ho effect of these words was extraordinary. The greater pari of the
House shrieked itself hoarse with delight. Thompson-Halllday and one or
two of his staunchest. friends and supporters jumped to their feet, gesticulated, and strove vainly to make them-
selves heard above the din. Al length
silence was restored, and ll.lliday

Thoughtful Farmer Learns About Tea
and Coffee
Many people exist in a more or less
hazy condition and it often takes years
before they realize that tea and coffi j
are often the cause of the cloudiness,
and that there is a simple way to let
the light break in.
A worthy farmer had such an experience and tells about it, in a letter.
He Bays:
"For about forty years, I have had
indigestion and stomach trouble in
various forms. During the last 25
years I would not more than get over
one spell of bilious colic until another
would be upon me.
"The best doctors I could get and
all the medicines I could bu;', only
gave me temporary relief.
"Change of climate was tried without results. I could not sleep nights,
had rheumatism and my heart would
palpitate at times so that it seemed
it would jump out of my body.
"I came to the conclusion that there
was no relief for me and that I was
about wound up, when I saw a Postum advertisement. I had always
been a coffee drinker, and got an idea
from the ad. that maybe coffee was
the cause of my trouble." Tea is just
as harmful, because It contains caffeine, the same drug found in coffee.
"I began to use Postum Instead of
coffee and in less than three weeks I
felt like a new man. The rheumatism
left me, and I have never had a spell
of bilious colic since.
"My appetite ls good, my digestion
never was better and I can do more
work than before for 40 years.

How to Read the Moon
Few people can tell at a glance
whether the moon is waxing or waning. Here Is a whimsical rule to remember by. It is very simple to those
who know Latin, and is not. difficult
for those who do not. The first thh.g
is to notice whether the moon is like
a D or a C���that is whether the full
semicircular curve Is on the right, or
the left. If the moon shows a D that
naturally stands for decrescit. It
But then comes in the great principle. The moon is always deceitful,
and one has to understand the opposite of what the moon says, so that a
moon which shows a D is a waxing
moon, while a waning moon is like a
Those who have no Latin will :.o
doubt look to see whether the moon
says It is decreasing, in which case
they will understand that it is waxing,
while a waning moon will deny that It
is decreasing.

Lord Mayor Appeals to London Times
to Raise Money to Make it Public
At tlie urgent request of the Lord
Mayor of London, sir David Burnett,
Thu London ' lines im- undertaken to
raise $150,000 to save the Crystal Palace Which he Court Of 1'hancery had
ordered sold by auction, a'ul make ft i
palace iiuil its grounds, covering some
'20O acres, public property Instead of
being split up into building lots.
For nearly two years the present
Lord Mayor ami two predecessors had
been seeking to raise $1,150,0011 neces-
hiiry to make the purchase, and despairing of completing the fund, Sir
David Burnett appealed i the London
Times to open lis columns for sub
sci'lhilona to the amount of $450,000,
lhat being bis estimate of the balance
he will be unable to obtain. The Times
responded to the anpetvl with the explanation:
So far as we are a war J The Times
lias never before, In nfl Its ions history
mado so direct an appeal to lis readers Cor tt large sum of money for an
liuporliint untlniiiil object as we make
today. But the olrcumstanees arc n-
usiial and Hn ens;', iii our opinion, as
oogenl as it is Intrinsically good,
King Qeorgo promptly subscribed
$l,ooo, Queen Mnry $500 and Queen
Alexandra $500.
Lord Plymouth, whose means and
public spirit enabled him to advance
the $1,150,000 needed Ij preserve the
property, wive $25.ooi).
A private citizen, whose Identity Is
it, remain unknown except, to the Lord
Mayor and The Times, offered to contribute ten shillings for every sovereign subscribed by I lie end c. a certain
month, limiting his responslb'llty Iu
this respect, however, to $150,000.
The Times gave $5,000, the Duke of
Westminster *r��.ooo. VV. Perkins Ball
$5,000, the Uoihscliiltls $1,250, and further iarga and small sums were soon
:i titled.
The other i.ewspapers of Kngland
immediately rallied to lite support of
The Times, and the prospect Is favor-
aible for speedily securing Crystal Palace for the l ation.

Only a Difference in the Kind
Professor Nichols, a famous physicist, during the recitation of a fresh-
mau class ln natural philosophy, observed a tall, lanky youth in the rear
seat, his head in a recumbent position, his body in a languid pose, his
eyes half closed, and his legs extended
far out. Ho was either asleep or
about tc lose consciousness.
Mr. aicardo, said tho scientist, you
may recite.
The freshman opened his eyes slowly. He did not change his somnolent

Yes, sir, replied the youth wearily,

Lime in Water
In answer to a communication from
a lay correspondent, who expresses
his belief that the lime in common
water has mucii to do with the bringing on of old age, the Lancet says
that while that opinion is common,
it is of course, fatuous. To those
people who believe that watc is the
only possible channel by which lime
salts are convey:d to the organism
the writer says: Lime salts are inseparable from the common, everyday articles of food, so that if hard
water were left out of the dietary
there would still be secured a large
dietary intake of lime salts, which
could miy be avoided by a hunger

Forty-Sixth Anniversary of Great Ammunition Company
Just, forty-six years ago, with the
spirit of reconstruction then abroad in
the land as a moving influence, began
the llrst successful manufacture of
metallic cartridges in the United
iitates. Somo while before, when
Journeying through the West, Marcel-
lits Hartley had seen a roughly made
melallic shell or case made to contain
the charge of a gun and had given this
idea considerable thought. After the
Civil War some ten years later, realizing the importance of metallic cartridges for the new breech loading
arms, Mr. Hartley's firm bought up the
plants and patents of several unsuccessful factories and on AugtiBt 9th,
1867, the Union Metallic Cartridge
Company was incorporated, ; half century after the first Remington gun was
made at Uion, N.Y. .
In the 50's, skin cartridges and those
of parchment and linen holding the
powder and bullet and percussion caps
had been made, together with a few
inferior rim fire cartridges', but now
came this new industry wore important than all the rest combined. A
mechanical genius was sought and
found In the person of Alfred G. Hobbs
whose master skill had brought him
the $1,000 in gold offered by the English Government for the man who
could pick the lock of the bank of
England. Nearly all the special machines required were the inventions of
Mr. Hobbs. At first, rim Are cartridges were turned out, but with Col.
Berdan's revolutionary Invention of the
primer, central Are cartridges became
the bulk of the output. The far-famed primers developed by the Remington U.M.C. experts have, enabled the
company's ammunition to go through
all climatic conditions and prove absolutely normal lu any test.
In 1873 equipment for making shotgun shells was installed and in the
early 80's shotgun loads were supplied.
As our readers well know the two
great companies, the Remington Arms
Com; any and the Union Metallic Cartridge Company, amalgamated several
years ago, and since have reee- doing
business as one.

Fine. They don't, foem to care what j

From the captain of industry to the
hod carrier���from milady in the auto to
the woman with the scrubbing brush���
the accomplishments of every one of ua
depend absolutely on the accomplish,
incuts of our stomachs. Backed by a
good digestion, a man .can give the best
that is in him. When his stomach fails,
lie becomes a weakling.
To this loss of power no one need
submit. Right habits of eating,
drinking, sleeping and exercise, aided
by Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets, will
restore and maintain the full efficiency
of the human mind and body.
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets contain
the active principles needed for the
digestion of every kind of food. They
go to the assistance of the weakened
stomach, and enable the sufferer, right
from the start, to assimilate aud get tha
benefit of the food eaten. With this
assistance, the digestive organs regain
their tone, and soon the use of the tablets
Is no longer necessary.
If your stomach is not working properly, try Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets.

Muscallonge, Pike and Pickerel are
all Closely Related.
Three divisions of the pike family
are known lo anglers, and these are
named muscallonge, pike and pickerel. The gainest of the group, of
course is the muscallonge, and students claim that two varieties are
found, This may or may not bo
true, but they confuse the Great
Northern pike with the muskle in
many parts of the country.
In this section we generally consider the niuscallonge as the largest
member of the pike family as specimens as large as 100 pounds have
been reported, but In Europe the common pike often runs to a corresponding size.
Muscallonge, pike and pickerel of
course, are all more or less stellar
ln shape, and their fins are of the
same number, the base body coloring
of green or yellow also being similar in the different species. In all
too, the belly color ranges from white
to cream. But this is as far as the
similarity goes.' In the muscallongo
the body markings are always and
invariably a dark brown or black and
are either round spots or vertical
blotches, according to one well
known author.

Yes, replied Harry, she is practicing

direction you had better get busy and
head her off before it is too late.
I don't understand you, Harry, s.iht

Senator Ashurst, of Arizona, the other day discussed a fellow senator who
had geen sitting on the political fence
with great skill for months. Every
one suspects his true position, but no
one can probe it. It reminded Ashurst of the incident that followed the
kidding of Jesse James, the outlaw.
A stranger entered the morgue, said
Ashurst, and raising his hat politely,
addressed thy morgue keeper.
Sir, said he, would you do me a
great favor? Will you permit me to
see all that is mortal of the honorable
Jesse James?
Sure, said the morgue keeper. He
walked to the marble Elab and pulled
out the dead robter. The stranger
gazed earnestly. Then, replacing his
hat, he started to leave.
One moment, said tho morgue keeper. Why did you call the dead man,

Because, sa'd the stranger. I wasn't
quite certain he was dead.

On Friday last William Smith
was considerably under the inllit-
etice of liquor dorm at Union Bay,
and while there the Argus eyed
minions of the law at that place
spied I11111 and promptly pulled him
out of his wagon and haled him to
Cumberland goal. The next day,
instead of letting him go or giving
him a trial, he was told that he
would be "relieved of $15" and as
William hadn't that much coin
about him he was told that he
would have lo remain in quod until
someone got il for him. A responsible business man of Courteuay
was communicated with who offered
to lie responsible for the amount.
This was not accepted. lie was
peremptorily told to send up the
money and Hill would be released,
which was promptly done. Now
wliih Bid perhaps had no business
to get drunk, the constable certainly had no right to take him off his
wagon, and hale him to Cumberland and then luive him "relieved"
of his moneyjwithput a fair hearing.
This does not sound like Britisti
Fair Play, and seems most irregular.
These selutln could have been employed in unearthing the blind pigs
of which there are reported to be

The Output of Diamonds
Forty-five years have elapsed since
he first diamond was found in Africa
ind It Is calculated that since tlie development of the diamond mines the
world has paid more than $2,000,000,-
noo for their products. This represents a weight of 90,000,000 carats,
If tho Immense loss Erotr. theft In the
early years be taken Into consideration, and tho diamonds taken from
Brazilian mines and others in different parts of the world be added to tho
estimate, it is probable that not less
than 100,000,000 carats would be a conservative estimate of the outj. t. The
value of these In tlie rough would be
more than $760,000,000; lo this must
be added the cost ot cutting and lhe
profits to the syndicate, to Ihe exporter, to the middleman and the retailer.
Among tho most famous diamonds
are those of the royal houses of Bra-
ganza, and nmong the most valuable
of tho Braganza collection Is lhat. called the King of Portugal, which weighs
1,080 carats. It was found in Brazil
and ln.s never been cut. The most
important cut stone of Brazil ia that
called the Star of the South, which
was found by a negress in 1853. -t
was appropriated by the mine owner
who gave her in return a pension for
life. The stone was sold for $15,000,
the new owner depositing It In the
Bank ot Uio Janeiro and receiving
on this security a loan many times
greater than the value paid for the
gem. The diamond was at length
sold for ten times the amount paid.
It was finally acquired by a syndicate
and cut in oval form at a cost rf
$2,000 by a firm in Amsterdam. An
Indian Rajah offered more than half
a million dollars for It, but was refused. A lit(le later it was bought for
the Qaekwar of Baroda.

Moral Clean-Up
A Sunday schapl teacher on Uie
Park Slope, la Brooklyn, told her boys
of the city's spring clean up, and ot the
admonition that oven the cellars and
backyards should be cleaned. Thence
sho drew a lesson in moral cleanliness,
telling the youngsters that while regard for outward appearance was commendable inward purity waa much
more meritorious. To make them further interested she offered a prize to
the boy who should bring the written
or printed motto that best expressed
Remember she said, that the motto
must bear especially on the necessity
for inward cleanliness���the purity tf
a heart as pure and polished i spotless gold.

Animals Make Poor Sailors
Probably many people have not witnessed the performance of animals
when on a sea journey. It would no
doubt be as interesting to watch their
antics on board ship as on the stage.
Most animals make poor sailors.
Horses and tigers suffer most of all;
they whine pitifully, and their eyes
water continually. Elephants, too,
suffer greatly, but they are very amenable to medical attention.
When the elephant falls seasick, a
bucket of fresh water, containing seven ounces of quinine and three and
one-half pints of whisky, is supplied.
Birds, howevei, delight ln sea voyages. Recently a number of English
songbirds, such as the lark and robin
were dispatched to British Columbia.
The polar bear, too, enjoys a sea
journey. Ho is described as very
gay while on beard ship. But most
other animals greatly resent sea trips.
Do not allow worms lo sap the vitality of your children. If not attended to, worms may work irreparable harm to the constitution of the

Tho gourds designed for wrens have
entrace lioles ab-ut the siz.' of a silver
quarter. This Is sufficiently large fo��
a wren to poss through but not larga
enough for a sparrow.
The bluebird is about Ihe same she
as the sparrow, so a different arrangement was necessary. TU* farmer
discovered that the English sparrows
would not use the gouris if they were
placed in the sun, but that lhe bluebirds would. Secure nesting places
were therefore provided for the latter
by suspending the gourds from poles
placed out in the open.

Ciirdlniil Richelieu was sitting at bli

"Hear me, yonr eminence. One of

In locking him ln a room from which

"Their names!"
"I will die, your eminence, rnthet
than reveal them without your promise
that tbelr lives shall be spared."
'Ibe cardinal hesitated for n moment,
thru gave Ihe required promise.
"Cnptnln de In Toiir, the famous
swordsman, nnd Lieutenant Dnrnnt,"
said tbe girl.
On the rold visage of the cardinal
appeared a trace of admiration for tuts1
woman who was going to meet death
In place of another.
"Vou are Mile. Itemcrclcr, I believe,
one of lhe queen's innlds of honor.
This nefarious dueling pest thnt is killing off every year hundreds of tho
king's best officers seems to bo more in
vogue among persons of quality than
the lower orders. I wish you were a
man. I would behead De la Tour and
giro .vou his commission. Why were
ynu nbout (o give your life for that ot
J.leulewtnt Durum?"
"Hecause I would rather die than
lose Mm."
The cardinal paused a moment In
t!lou��lit. "Singular," he said, half to
himself and half to the girl, "this thing
called love! I can conceive of alt other
passions, hut not this one, and a lore
that will sacrifice a life for the object
loved Is to me ns great a mystery as
Jlfo itself." Then, looking up, he nsk-
ed, "Where Is Ihls duel to tnke place?"
"lu a wood on the outskirts of tbe
city, on the bank of the Seine."
"At noon."
"It Is now npnr noon."
"Ves, yonr eminence. I wns going to
the ground when n gendarme of keener eye than others suspected my set

"I presume Cnptnln de In Tour Is
now waiting fnr his victim."
"Doubtless he Is, and {rendering wby
lie dues not appear."
Something wns running with electric rapidity through the cardinal's
brnln. Whatever It was, It enmo to a
bend nt ouce. Summoning an attendant, he directed him to proceed to tbe
dueling ground and bring Cnptnln de
la Tour to lhe palace. Then, turning
to Mile. Rcmorclor, lie asked If she

"apartment to await the coming of the

The messenger who went for De la
Tour found him pacing back nnd forth
impatiently waiting for his enemy, hla
seconds standing together chatting tc
pass the lime. When the cnptnln saw
a man coming wearing the cardinal's
livery he turned pale.
".Mon Dleu!" be exclaimed. "Tbe

"His eminence desires your presence

Meanwhile Lieutenant Durant was a
prisoner, bewailing his faie. Proud
and sensitive, his mind dwelt on tho

imrunt quailed. He could face dentil
like a gentleman and a soldier, but to
be executed in cold blood was not to
bis liking, and ho did not doubt that
he would suffer tho execution of a
felon. As he accompanied lhe messenger to the palnce he wondered If the
girl he loved could hnve given away
the secret of (ho meeting. No; she had
locked him up to prevent his being
killed by De In Tour. She surely would
not turu him over to another fnto far
more terrible. Uo was wondering how
the secret could hare got out and
whether there was any hope for blm !
when be nnd the messenger entered
ibe palace. He was taken to a chamber, where ho was placed In charge of
a guard and notice uf his arrival sent
to (he cardinal.
Presently nn attendant came for blm
and led him to another apartment, and
as ho entered by one door he saw Do
la Tour ushered In by another. The
cardinal sat In an armchair at one side,'
and near blm stood Mile. Rcmercler In
man's apparel. The two duelists advanced and bowed to the cardinal. Rut i
what was most astonishing were a
beadsman's block and ax at one end of
the room. There was no executioner
present, but the culprits expected to
see blm enter at any moment. !
"Gentlemen," snld the minister, "you
arc doubtless aware of Ihe recent edict
agalust dueling, and, having conspired
to disobey It, your lives are forfeited."   I
Rotb men bowed low. |
"I hare decided, however, to permit
this meeting and to witness It myself.
There is nn unfairness about these
duels which In this one I hope to counteract Tou, Captain de la Tour, are
accounted tbe best swordsman In
France. Ton, Lieutenant Durant, I
learn, are one of tbe poorest. To enable'
you to tight equitably I bare decided
tbat you sball continue tbe contest till
one kills the other. He who remains
alive wilt be dispatched by the headsman."
"Rut, your eminence," interposed tbo
informant, deathly pale, "you promised
me lhat their lives should be spared."
"And my promise Is not broken by
this disposition. But for you both of
them would be ordered to execution at
once. I cannot conceive a more noble
part than (bat you hnve acted. Since
ln this realm a practice exists by whlcb
an expert swordsman mny kill one wha
Is practically defenseless you wen
about to suffer death to save the unskilled combatant Falling in tbis,
knowing that I alone bad power ta
prevent this Injustice, you Informed
me of It, but not till you hnd received

Intention to punish either of them fot
disobeying the edict, but to render the
nffnir between them perfectly equitable. Gentlemen, there Is ample room
for you on the floor of this apartment,
Take yonr positions and an attendant
will hand yon yonr weapons."
As the cardinal spoke the last words
the men were given rapiers, and at the
same time a door opened, and a masked
man In tight fitting garments entered, I
went to the block, took up the nx and !
stood ready fur duty. The duelists, j
who understood that this was a mere
subterfuge of the crafty cardinal to
keep his promise to Mile. Remercler In
the letter and break It lu the spirit
and that ono wns to execute the oilier
nnd the headsman the victor, stood
facing each other, awaiting a signal to
begin the combat. ��� They had been
friends, nnd Ihelr quarrel had been in
their enps. Neither had the faintest
remembrance of Its cause. Realizing
that they were nbout to die, they stepped forward nnd embraced each other.
Meanwhile Mile. Remercler had
thrown herself nt tbe feet of the cardinal to beg for their lives. Her back
being turned to the combatants nnd
ber head bowed, she did not see the
embrace. The cardinal raised her and
turned her toward them.
"Look!" he snld. "The nfTair Is ended Ihe way I would have all such affairs ended-In n reconciliation. Gentlemen, put nwny your swords. If you
supposed Richelieu to lie so crafty as
thus to break his word to one whose
life Is demanded bv the king's wel
fare perhaps you are ngnr, unt yon
wrong him If you think he could act
such a part toward this noblo girl.
Vou, Captain do la Tour, go to your
quarters and bo assured that If you
offend again lhat masked person yonder will see that you do not offend a
Ihlrd linic. Lieutenant Durant, I give
you to Mile. Iteinercler."
Tho lady seized (he minister's hand
and kissed It rapturously, while tho
two men. kneeling before blm, begged
that he would add his blessing to their
pardon. He gave It, and De In Tour
departed alone, Durant and Mile.
Remercler were driven nway ln the
cardinal's carriage.
The practice lhat Richelieu strove so
hard to eradicate still exists In France
to a greater extent than In any olher
country. While tho Anglo Saxon has
abandoned It. tho Latin and Teutonic
races still retain It. But nowhere Is It
so deadly ns It wns In France when
Cardinal Richelieu tried to break It
up. Today there nro several hundred
duels fought annually In France, hut
rnrely does one result fntnlly, the object of each of the combatants being
to "pink" tho other, and nt tho letting
nf n few drops of blood the affair Is
ususllv called off.

Rl.  Hon. Walter Runcim n Is Doing
Belter In Agriculture.
The nt. Hod. Walter Runoiman bids
fair to aeuie.a  - greater neaiura of
success at tlio bead ot tb' Hoard cf
Agriculture in Great Britain 11 an he
did when superintending tHe education of that country, There can lie
little doubt as to this ability, but lia
was never happy when chief '.f the
Hoard nf Education, and in several
instances lie was the victim ol circumstances.
Mr. Runoiman ii the son ol that
staunch Radical, Sir Walter Runei-
man, founder of lhe Moor Line of
steamers . The Runcimans nr-j a nautical family, and both Mr. Runciman'a
great-ffrnndfatlicrs fought nt Tiafnlgar
as midshipmen. The family baa also
played no small part in iho literary
world, and it was nt the house of his
uncle that Mr. Runoiman, when ��
boy, often used tn meet Robert Louis
Stevenson. According to hi-* account:
"Stevenson was generosity itself. Of
course, be was egotistic, Vit bis verv
vanity was part of his charm, -le used
to stand in (he middle of tlio hearthrug, with liis back to 'lie fire, dressed
always in a velvet jacket nud waist-
cent, and smoke his pipe in silence
whilst lhe rest talked. Trtc.1 he would
suddenly break in, and for the hnlf-
licur together weave the most fantastic but brilliant perversions of the sub.
jeet nf discussion. He was :i splendid
fellow, too. I remember once, when
I was six years of ago, I was staying
at Greenwich, and we had a splendid
game together, Louis and I, making
boats out nf furniture, and having all
sorts of delightful adventures���though
my aunt did not much like the way
)i ��� nulled t'lines about, tn nmn-'e me.
After I had gone to b:d I woke and
beard the voice of Louis Stevenson
downstairs. So up I got. and ran
down in my nightshirt and bare-fool
to the room where all those fellow*
were smoking and talking."
As a child, young Walter Runoiman
often went to sea with liis father, and
when his Cambridge days were over he
entered his father's shipping business
on Tyneside. Then be erne under
the influence of Mr. John Morley, who
nt the time wns ono of the members
for Newcastle, and resolved to enter
public life. He put up for the Newcastle School Board, and was relurned
along with a Miss Stevenson, a Gir-
ton girl, who polled more votes than
he did. This election hnd important
results In more senses than one, for
Miss Stevenson eventually became
M-s. Runciman.
Mr. Runoiman first endeavored to
enter Parliament by way of Graves-
end, but was defeated. At a Inter period when on a yachting tour round
Norway lie received a telegram asking
him to stand for Oldham. His opponent was Mr. Winston Churchill, whom
he defeated. Not long afterwards Mr.
Churchill turned the tables, and Mr.
Runciman had to seek a refuge at
Centenary of Pansy.
Just one hundred years ago Lady
Mary Bennett, a daughter of the Earl
of Tankerville, was so struck with the
simple beauty of a tiny wildling, viola
tricolor, that she collected some of ths
best plants and gave them careful cultivation, says The Pall Mall Gazette.
The first batch of seedlings raised
by her gave such promise that systematic selection was at once instituted,
ond thereafter the improvement of tha
genus was taken up by the loading
growers. Thus to an enthusiastic amateur we are indebted for one of the
most popular and beautiful of our
garden flowers, a flower which has
marvelously developed ii size, and
with wonderful and bizarre markings
and colorings.
Many fanciful names have been
given to the pansy by country folk,
the best known of which is heartsease,
from the notion that it was efficacious
in diseases of the heart. This favorite
blossom can indeed boast a longer list
of pet names than most of her companions, a sure sign of popularity.
