absence from Ladysmith.
Amidst the general jubilation over the
approaching coronation ol Kim.* Edward
the Seventh of England and Firet o
Scotland, the student of history tim.H
himself casting a glance backward into
the centuries when even larger figures
loomed on the stage. It is certainly not
uninteresting to remember that on tbe
21th Jof June, 1657, Oliver Cromwell,
perhaps the greatest ol all Englishmen,
was declared Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England in the same hai)
in which King Edward will be crowned.
Let us give onr readers the scene from
the pen of one of England's moat gifted
chroniclers, as an item of very special
interest at this time.   Mr. Goldwin
. Smith, in his "United Kingdom, a
Political History." sayB:
"To mark the legal commencement of
his power, the Protector was installed
with greater solemnity thau before, and
with ceremonies more resembling a
coronation. An account ol the pageant
Is given ub hy Whitslock, who, though
no lover of Cromwell, seems tu huve
been impressed, Ju Westminster Hull,
nnder a canopy, was placed a chair il
state upoa an awent ol two degrees;
down the hall were seats for parliament,
tbe dignitaries of the law, the mayor
and aldermen of London. Thither on
the twenty-sixth of June, 1067, went the
Protector with his council of slate, his
ministers, gentlemen, sergeants* at*arn.B.
officers ud heralds. His Highness,
standing under the canopy of state, the
speaker, in the name of parliament, put
on him the robe of purple lined with
ermine, delivered to him the Bible,
richly gilt and bossed, girt on blm the
ewordof state, and put a golden scepter
ln his bands. Only the crown was
wanting. The Speaker then gave him
tbe oatb to observe the constitution
with good wishes for tbe prosperity of
his government. The chaplain next by
prayer recommenced the Protector the
parliament, tbe council, the forces by
land and sea, the whole government
and people of the three nalioue te the
blessing and protection of God. Then
the people gave a shout and the trumpets
Bounded. The Protector took his -Mat
in the chair tf state, with the ambassadors of the friendly nations and the high
offleess of the protectorate round him,
and, as fa* did »°t tbe trumpets sounded
. M-Mn* heralds proclaimed the title ol his
Highness, and the people shouted one*
mors: 'God save the Lord Protector.'
At the gorgeous coronutiou nf Napoleon,
someone asked the republican general
Augereau whether anything wm want-
"Ing to the spleudtir of the scene. ' Nettling,' replied  Augereau-, ' but tie hull
.million of men who died in do away
with all thifi.' There was not mueli in
Cromwell's Installation to dim nny with
which any man hail died. The pngentry
was solemn and symbolic, without tinsel or outworn forms."
Now the Missouri mule will return to
the rosy paths of peace and chew the
thistle of contentment. The only kickers
will be thoee dealers wbo didn't get
their mules down to the shipping point
ln time.        ._
The American newspapers have pretty
well stopped talking about the horrors
Editor Ltaderi—• I would llko to s*v a
word lu reference to the Hay report of
our public school tbat appeared ia yonr
columns last week:
In complaining of tbe inadequate accommodation and want of proper scheol

any blame on tbe Irnsleen. They have
been trying right along to remedy tilings,
