Ot, The Lore Story of Charles Brandon and Mary Tudor, the King's Sister, and
Happening In the Reign of His August Majesty King Henry the Eighth
Rewritten •.nd Rendered Into Modern Entftuh From Sir Edwin
C_._VodK**\'i Memoir
• Covurtaht, use and 1901, by l*e Jtoux...-JfcttOI Company
i\ cry trom tno fallen horseman
brought his companion to his side and
gave Brandon nn opportunity to escape
with the girls. Of this he took advantage, you may be Riire, for one of
his mottoes was that the greatest fool
in the world ls ho who docs not early
In lifo lenrn how and when to run.
ln tho light of tho sparks from the
sword stroke upon the wall, brief as
lt wns, Brandon recognized tho fnce
of Iliickliighnin, from which tho mask
had fallen. Of this he did not speak
to any one till long afterward, and bis
silence was nlmost his undoing.
I low often n word spoken or unspoken mny havo tho very deuce In lt
either wny!
The girls were nearly dead from
fright, and ln order to mnko any Bort
of progress Brandon hnd to carry the
princess nud help June until he thought
they were out of danger. Jane soon
recoil red, but Mary did not seem anxious to walk and lay with her head
upon Brandon's shoulder, apparently
contented enough.
In a fow minutes Jnne (aid: "If you
can walk now, my lady, I think you
hnd better. We shall soon bo near
Fishmonger's hall, whore somo one ls
sure to bo standing nt this hour."
Mnry snld nothing In roply to Jane,
but as Brandon fell a step or two behind nt a narrow crossing whispered:
"Forgive me, forgive me. I will do
nny penance you nsk. 1 nm unworthy
to nponk your name. I owe yoll my
life nnd more—nnd more a thousand
times." At this she lifted her nrm
nnd plnced hor hand upon his check
nnd neck. Sho thon learned for the
Drst time thnt he was wounded, nnd
tho tears enme softly ns she slipped
from his nrms to the ground. She
wnlked bcBide him quietly for a little
time, then, tnklng bis hand ln both of
hers, gently lifted lt to her lips and
laid lt upon her breast. Half nn hour
afterward Brandon left tho girls at
Bridewell House, went over to the
bridge whero he had left his horse at
a hostelry, and rode down to Greenwich.
So Mary had made her trip to
drouche's, but tt wns lnbor worse than
lost Grouche hnd told her nothing
she wanted to know, though much that
ho supposed Bho would llko to lenrn.
Ho hnd told her that sho had many
lovers, n fact which her fnce nnd form
would mnko easy euough to discover.
Ho Informed her also that sho hnd a
lowborn lover, nnd In order to put a
littlo evil ln with tho good fortune and
give what he said nn nlr of truth ho
ndded to Mnry's stnto of unrest moro
than ho thought by telling her that ber
lowborn lover wns false. Ho thought
to flatter her by predicUng tbat she
would soon marry n very great prince
nr nobleman, the Indications being In
favor of the former, nnd In place of
this making her happy she wished tho
wretched soothsayer In the bottomless
pit—ho and all his prophecies; herself,
loo, for going to him. His guesses
trero pretty shrewd—that Is, adinltUng
ho did not know who Mary wnn, wblcb
she nt least supposed wns the case; so
Mury wept that night and moaned nud
moaned because she hnd gone to
(.rouche's. It had ndded Infinitely to
tlm pnln of which her heart Wns already too full and made her thoroughly wretched nnd unhnppy.
THOUGHT the king's dance
tbnt night would never end,
,      , ji   so fond were the Frenchmen
*»g3g-  of our fair ladles, nnd I was
more than nnxtous to see Brandon nnd
lenrn tho issue of the girls' escnpnde,
as I well knew the danger attending It
All things, however, must end, so
early In tho morning I hastened to our
rooms, where I found Brandon lying
In his clothes, everything saturated
with blood from a dozen sword cuts. He
wns very wenk, and I nt once hnd In n
barber, who took oft his shirt of mnll
and dressed his wounds. He then
dropped Into r. deep sleep, while I
watched tho night out. Upon nwnken-
lug Brandon told mc nil thnt had happened, but aBked me to sny nothing of
Ills lllncRs, ns he wished to keep the
fact of his wounds secret ln order tlmt
ho might better conceal tho cnuso of
them. But, ns I told you, he did not
speak of Buckingham's part In tbo affray.
I snw tho princess that afternoon nnd
expected, of course, sho would Inquire
for her defender. One who hnd given
such timely help and who wns Buffering so much on her account wns surely worth a little solicitude, but not a
word did she nsk. She did not como
near me, but mnde a point of avoidance, ns I could plainly see. The next
morning she, with June, went over to
Scotland palace without so much ns a
breath of Inquiry from cither of them.
TIiIb heartless conduct enrnged me, but
I was glad to learn afterward that
Jane's silence wns nt Mnry's command, tbnt bundlo of Bclllnhncss fearing that nny solicitude, however carefully shown, upon her part might re-
venl her secret.
It seems thnt Mary had recent intelligence of the forward stnto of affairs
In tho marriage negotiations and felt
thnt a discovery by her brother of what
sho bnd done, especially In view of the
disastrous results, would send her to
France dcnplto nil the coaxing sho
could do from then till doomsday.
It wos a terrible fato hanging over
her, doubly so In vlow of the fnct that
sho loved another mnu, and looking
bnck at lt all from the vantngo point
of time I ennnot wonder thnt lt drove
other things out of her bond and mado
her seem selfish In her frightened de-
slro to savo hersolf.
About 12 o'clock of tbe following
night I was awakened by a knock at
my door, and upon opening ln wnlked
a sergeant of tbo nherlir of London,
with four yeomen nt bin heels.
.Tho sergeant asked lf ono Charles
Brandon wns present, and upon my affirmative answer demanded that he bo
forthcoming. I told the sergeant that
Rrandon was confined to bis bed with
Illness, whereupon he nsked to be
shown to his room.
It wns useless to resist or to evnde,
so I awakened Brandon nnd took the
sergeant In. Here he rend his warrant
to arrest Charles Brandon, Esq.. for
the murder of two citizens of Loudon,
perpetrated, done and committed upon
the night of such nud such n day of
this year of our Lord 1014. Brandon's
lint had been found by the Bide of the
dead men. and the authorities hnd received Information from n high source
thnt Brandon wns tho guilty person.
Thnt high source wns evidently Buckingham.
When the sergeant found Brandon
covered with wounds, there was no
longer nny doubt, and, although hardly nble to lift his hand, ho was forced
to dress nud go with them. A horse
litter wns procured, nnd we nil started
to London.
While Brandon wns dressing I said
I would nt once go nnd nwnken the
king, who, I know, would pardon the
offense when he heard my story, but
Brandon asked tho sergeant to leave
us to ourselves for a short time, nnd
closed the door.
'Tlensc do nothing of the Bort, Caskoden," snld be. "If you tell the king,
I will declare thero Is not one word of
truth ln your story. There is only one
person In the world who mny tell of
that night's happenings, and lf she
does not they shall remain untold. She
will make lt all right at once, I know.
I would not do her the foul wrong to
think for one Instant that she will fall.
You do not know her. She sometimes
seems solflsh, but lt ls thoughtlessness
fostered by flattery, nnd her heart Is
right. I would trust her with my life.
If you breathe a word of whnt I hnve
told you, you mny do more barm than
you cnn ever remedy, and I ask you to
sny nothing to nny ono. If the princess
would not liberate me—but thnt is not
to bo thought of. Never doubt that
she cnn nnd will do it better thnn you
think.   She ls all gold."
This, of course, Bllcnced me, ns I did
not know what new danger I might
create or how I might mar the matter
I so much wished to mend. I did not
tell Brandon that the girls had left
Greenwich or of my undefined and perhaps unfounded fear that Mury might
not net ns he thought she would ln a
great emergency, but silently helped
him to dress and wont to London along
with him und the sheriff's sergeant.
Brandon was taken to Newgate, the
most lontlisomo prison In  London at
thnt time, lt being used for felons, while
Ludgnto wns for debtors.   Hero be wns
thrown Into an underground dungeon
foul with  water that Beeped through
the old   masonry  from  tho moat nnd
alive with every noisome thing thnt
creeps.   There was no bed, no stool, no
floor, not even a wlcp of straw; simply   the  reeking stone walls,  covered
with fungus, nnd the wlndowless arch
overhead.   Ouo could hardlv conceive
a more horrible place In which to spend
even n moment   I hnd n glimpse of lt
by the light of the keeper's lantern as
they put him ln, nnd it seemed to me a
single night In Unit nwful plnee would
huve killed me or driven me mud.    I
protested nnd begged nnd tried to bribe,
but lt wns nil of no avail.   Tbe keeper
had been bribed before I arrived.   Although It could do no possible good, I
wns glnd to stand outside the prison
walls in the drenching min nil the rest
of that wretched night thut I might be
as near ns possible to my friend and
Buffer n little with him.
As soon ns the prison gates were
opened next morning I again Importuned the keeper to give Brandon a
more comfortable cell, but bis reply
wns thnt such crimes hnd of Into become so frequent In London that no favor could be shown those who committed them, and that men like Brandon,
who ought to know nnd net better, deserved the maximum punishment.
I told him he wns wrong In this ense;
that I knew the facta, nnd everything
would be clenrly explained tbat very
dny nnd Brniulon released,
"That's all very well," responded the
stubborn creature. "Nobody Is guilty
who conies here. They can every one
prove Innocence clearly and at once.
Notwithstanding, Ihey nenrly all hang,
and frequently, for variety's snkc, nro
drawn nnd quartered.
I waited about Ncwgnto until 8
o'clock nnd ns I pasted out met Buckingham and his man Johnson, a sort of
Inwyer-knlght, going In. I went down
to the pnlnce nt Greenwich and, finding
thnt the girls wero still nt Scotland
pnlnce, rode over nt once to nco them.
Upon getting Mnry nnd Jnno to myself I told them of Brandon's arrest
on the chargo of murder nnd of his
condition, lying hnlf dead from wounds
and loss of blood lu that frightful
dungeon. The tale moved them greatly, nnd they both gave wny to tears. I
think Mnry had henrd of the arrest
before, as she did not seem surprised.
"Do you think he will tell tho cause
of the kllllii'.-?" Bbe asked.
"I know be will not," I answered,
"but I nlso know that ho knows you
will." And I looked straight Into ber
"Certainly we will," said Jane. "We
will go to tho king nt once." And she
wns on the qui vlve to start Immediately.
Mnry did not nt onco consent to
Jane's proposition, but snt In a reverie,
looking with tearful eyes Into vacancy,
apparently absorbed In thought. After a littlo pressing from us sho snld,
"I suppose It will hnvo to be done—I

Mother Mnry, help mel"
Tho glrlfl mnde hnsty preparations,
nnd wo all started bnck to Greenwich, that Mnry might tell the king.
On tho rond over I stopped at Ncwgnte
to tell Brandon that tho princess would
■eon hnvjo him out, knowing how wel
come nnerty would be nt ner nnnds,
but I wns not permitted to Bee him.
I swallowed my disappointment and
thought lt would be only a matter of
n few hours' delay, tbe Uine spent in
riding down to Greenwich and sending
back n messenger. So, light hearted
enough at the prospect, I soon Joined
the girls, nnd we cantered briskly
After waiting n rensonnble time for
Mnry to see the king I sought her
again to learn where nnd from whom
I should receive the order for Brandon's rclensc and when I should go to
London to bring him.

I wns a little frightened nt the length
to which my feeling hnd driven me,
but Mary took lt all very well and snid
Blowly and nbscntmlndedly:
"You nre right. I will go at once. I
despise my selfish neglect. There Is
no other way—I have racked my brain
—there Ib no othor way. It must be

"And I will go with you," said I.
"I do not blame you," she said, "for

During all that time the same old
fear lived ln my heart that Mary
might fail to liberate Brandon. Sho
knew of the negotiations concerning
tho French marriage, as wo all did, although only by an Indefinite sort of
hearsay, and I was sure tho half founded rumors that had reached her ears
had long since become certainties and
thnt her heart was full of trouble and
fenr of her violent brother. Sho would
certainly be at her coaxing and wheedling again and on her best behavior,
and I feared she might refrain from
telling Henry of her trip to Grouche's,
knowing how severe he was ln such
matters and how furious ho was Buro
to become et the discovery. I was certnln lt was this fear which had prevented Mary from going directly to
the king on our return to Greenwich
from Scotland palace, and I knew that
her eating, bathing nnd dressing wore
but an excuse for a breathing spell before the dreaded Interview.
This fear remained with me all the
time I was away, but when I reasoned
with myself I would smother lt as well
ss I could with aigumentatlve attempts
et self assurance. I would say over
and over to myself that Mary could
not fall and that even if she did there
was Jane—denr. sweet, thoughtful, unselfish Jane!—who would not allow her
to do so. But as far as they go, our
lntultions-our "feelings," ns we call
them—are worth nil the logic ln the
world, and you may say what you will,
but my presentiments—I speak for no
ou« else—are well to be minded.  There
ls another sense hidden about ns that
will develop as the race grows older.
I speak to posterity.
In proof of this statement I now tell
yon that when I returned to London I
found Brandon still in the terrible dungeon, and, worse still, lie bad been
tried for murder and bad been condemned to be hanged, drawn and quartered on. the second Friday following.

On the morning after the fatal battle
of Billingsgate the barber who bad
treated Brandon's wounds had been
called to London to dress a bruised
knee for his grace the duke. In the
course of the operation an immense
deal of Information oozed out of the
barber, one Item of which was that he
bad tbe night before dressed nine
wounds, great and small, for Master
Brandon, the king's friend. This established the identity of the man wbo
had rescued the girls, a fact of which
Buckingham had had his suspicions all
along. So Brandon's arrest followed,
as I hnve already related to you.
I afterward learned from various
sources how this nobleman began to
avenge bis mishap with Brandon at
Mary's ball when the latter broke his
sword point First he went to Newgate and gave orders to the keeper,
who was his tool, to allow no communication witb the prisoner, and lt was
by bis instructions,tbnt Brandon had
been confined ln the worst dungeon ln
London. Then ho went down to Greenwich to take care of matters there,
knowing tbat tho king would learn of
Brandon's arrest und probably take
steps for his liberation at once.
The king bad Just heard of the arrest
when Buckingham arrived, and the
latter found ho was right ln his sur-
mlso that his majesty would at once
demand Brandon's release.
Wben the duke entered the king's
room, Henry called to him: "My lord,
you aro opportunely arrived. So good

help us greatly this morning. Our
friend Brandon has been arrested for

Could a command to duty have come
at a mora inopportune time? I was
distracted, and upon leaving the klug
went at once to sock tho Lady Mary
whero I had left ber In tho anteroom.
She had gone, bo I went to ber apartments, but could not find ber. I went
to tbe queen's salon, but she wns not '
there, and I traversed that old rambling palace from one end to tbe otber
without finding her or Lndy Jane.
Tho king bnd told me tho embassy
would be a secret one and that 1 was,
to speak of It to nobody, least of nil to
tbe Lndy Mary. No ono was to know
that I was leaving England, and I wuh
to communicate with no one at home

Tbo king's command was not to ho
disobeyed.   To do so would be as much,

"I shall bo most happy to serve your

and had a private audience wltb tho

The Genesis  of "Pusay"—Brought    to
Book—Etymology of "Miniature"—
A  Barb For a Barber.
Pussy's pet designation descends to
her from the ancient Egyptians, with
whom she was an object of reverence;
they.compared her with the moon, and
to embody their quaint Idea of the resemblance, they made a grotesque human figure with a cat's head, which
they worshipped under the name of
"Pasht" (their term for Luna). From
that, through tho stages of "Pas" and
"Pos," has developed the common catcall of "Puss" and "Pussy."

A common way to express disfavor

In one's "black books." This phrase
originated ln the time of tho butcher-
king, Henry VIII., when the "scandalous proceedings ln tho English monasteries" were co,looted and compiled ln
books with blnck bindings, which hence
were called "Black books," as other
State books nre called "Blue books,"
"White books," and so on, according
to their color outside.
Etymology of "Miniature."
He who talked of life-sized miniatures would probably be thought a humorist. And yet, strictly Bpcaklng, a
largo picture would be more correctly
described as a "miniature" than a
small ono, provided the former wero
executed ln red lead, and tho later ln
tho ordinary way with various pigments; for we get tho word, not from
mlnlmun (vory smnll), but from minium
(rod oxide of lead). And this ls how
lt originated: In the early centuries
of the Christian era, before engraving and printing were thought of, an
order of Franciscan Friars drew the
lnljttal letters of their handwritten
rubrlco with minium, and consequently called them mlnlatorl. But as they
generally Introduced tho (necessarily
minute) heads of saints Into tho drawings, tho word gradually came to signify small portraits, Irrespective of the
material employed ln their production,
and from that beginning the moaning
of the term—Anglicised to miniatures
—has extended to tho Inclusion Of
anything on a very reduced scale.

No flour in the world is so nourishing, so vitalizing, so rich in all the elements of body, bone
and brain building as pure, well balanced, white
Bran in bread is just so much wood fibre—
so much extra wor for the stomach—ther is no

But man masticates once and digests once.
For that reason he gets nothing whatever out of
anything but the gluten portion of wheat—the

portions are removed in making it than frojm any

A civil marriage Is against the law of

to bo married according to the rites of

was out of the question. But faint

Thompson and his Intended bride took
a two days' Journey by coach to the

Peru had recently passed a law allowing civil marriages, but tho Mayor, or
alcalde, was evidently unaware of the
fact, for when Mr. Thompson went to

of the village had doubts and fears.
The news got out, and great excitement

at the risk of offending the priests.
In tho evening tho preparations were
duly made for the wedding. Tho people
were wildly excited, and filled the
streets about the Mayor's house, shouting and clamoring. A guard of m,Idlers
was drawn up tn close formation about

tho house was barricaded, and the marrlago ceremony, short and simple, but

Rosedene, Ont, July 17.—(Special).
—Mr. Samuel J. Crow, the well-known
musician of this place, relates an experience that adds to the already
great popularity of Dodd'a Kldnoy
Pills in this locality.
"I suffered for years with Kidney
Trouble," sayB Mr. Crow, "which became aggravated with every attack of
cold and caused mo much agony. The
disease developed Into Gravel, whon
I was totally unfit for anything.
"I tiled different remedies without
the desired result and was ln much
misery when I decided to try Dodd's
Kidney Pills, when to my astonishment and delight I immediately began to recover.
"After using flvo boxes the ailment
bad entirely ceased and I was again
enjoying perfect vigor, all of which I
owe to Dodd's Kidney Pills."
T|ie fact that Gravel yields so readily to Dodd's Kidney Pills ls good

Has Resort to Press Cutting Agencies
For Assistance.
King Edward always tries to make
certain of never missing seeing anything In the papers which he thinks
he ought to see, either about himself
or about any of the numerous objects
and movements ln which he ls Interested, such as different charities, the vis-
Its to him of his foreign friends and so
Since lt would be difficult for either
him or his secretaries to make a sufficiently close examination of the whole
of all the papers every day to Insure
this being done with any degree of
thoroughness. His Majesty many years
ago resorted to press cutting agencies
for assistance. He subscribes to two
of them, and they send him ln the
usual way each day every line of printed matter that has appeared ln any pa-
per concerning him, each paragraph
or article being pasted upon a separate
sheet of paper, with the name of the
Journal from which lt was taken and
the date of publication.
All these cuttings are (lanced
through by his secretaries, the less Important weeded out, and those which lt
ls considered His Majesty ought to see
are duly shown to him. The King keeps
many large cutting albums and whenever he desires to preserve any of
these extracts orders are given for
them to be pasted up In one of them.
In this way lt Is practically certain
that everything that Is written and
printed about the King duly finds Its
way to one of the Boyal palaces, and
there has been on at least one occasion
en Instance of the King very effectively expressing his opinion ooncernlng
one Item. His Majesty does not ln the
least mind the personal paragraphs
that are printed about his doings, habits and so forth, realizing that the public curiosity in regard to these matters
Is great and that lt has some claim to
be satisfied; but It Is on Instance of his
keen scrutiny of the papers that on one
occasion two or three years ago, when
a paragraph was going the round of
the dally papers which he did not con-
elder to be ln the best of taste, he
forthwith caused a request to sent
round to the offices that ln future they
would refrain from the publication of
such matters.
Down In a Diving Bell.
The writer 6t a most Interesting article on the building of Dover Harbor,
ln the Pall Mall Magazine, describes
his experiences ln a diving bell.
"Putting on a pair ot stockings, leggings, and heavy boots," he says, "I
Jumped on to the seat when the huge
bell—It weighed 40 tons and was as
large as a good-sized room—was swung
up by tire powerful crane over the
staging, and gradually we were lowered into the sea. The sensation at
flrst was very strange. As we entered the water, which was driven out
of the bell by compressed air, there
was a distinct buzzing sound ln the
ears and head. I was told to hold my
nose and blow through It and, needless
to say, I did so. Slowly we descended, and at last reached the bottom,
some 50 feet below the surface.
"The bell ln question was seventeen
feet long and ten feet wide. There
were six of us ln it It was lighted
by electricity, and woe almost as
bright as day. We first landed on a
bed which the divers had previously
levelled. The moment the bell touched
the ground there was, perhaps, about
two feet of water ln It This was
quickly driven out by the compressed
air, when we walked on comparatively
dry ground with the sea all around us.

"After Inspecting the smooth bed on
which the bottom blocks are laid, we
went out to sea, and, landing on the
bottom again, obtained some Idoa of
the difficulties of digging a foundation
on the floor of the ocean. It wos ragged and rocky. Four men work ln a
bell undor a presure of twenty-seven
pounds to the square Inch for three
hours at a time, digging up the ground
until lt Is perfectly smooth and level.
The material Is thrown Into a large
wooden box, swung In the centre of the

surface. I could not help thinking
how much we owed to the man sitting
next to me. The engineer above

all his signals, whether for air or for
direction as to traveling. While under water one has a feeling of utter
Isolation, besides a buzzing sensation

Intermarriages Out of Date.
Signs of the times should be observed, and the democratic trend of twentieth century life ls plainly proved by
the marriages of the English aristocracy. A witty woman was heard to
say: "They still marry, but they no
longer make alliances." This means
that they do not only choose their
wives from an exclusive circle of
cousins and family connections—ln a
word, Intermarriages are out of date.

Disease Carried By Spray.
A French military surgeon In Algiers
has recently found that spray driven
ashore from a stormy sea can effectively transmit disease germs. Carrying
on his Investigations at Bab-el-ouod,
near Algiers, at a point whero a number of sewers discharged Into the sea,
he found that the spray, which was
driven somo 150 feet ashore nnd high
Into the nlr, contained three times the
number of irorms ordlnnrily present ln
the air. This spray forms a mist
which permeates the houses near to
tho water's edge, and ln It a number
of virulent bacilli were found. When
a e-.ilo Is blowing offshore tho effect ts

Th* Males at Both Speclea Art In-
oorrl_rlbl* Fighters.
A very quarrelsome disposition bas
the chickaree, or American red squirrel, and there are continual fights between it and its cousin the gray squirrel. These fights seldom end ln a decided victory for either side. The males
of both species are incorrigible fighters. It Is no unusual sight to see a
couple of red or gray squirrels come
tumbling from some lofty limb so locked ln each other's embrace as to appear
nlmost Ilk* ono animal.
Though the shock af striking tbe

over, fighting fiercely until one breaks
awny, only to be followed by the other,
who keeps up a running fight for some
distance until be feels certain tbat be

Red squirrels by their greater agility and quickness can worst a gray

cross-examiner, Honry Wollman cites
this experience: In the progress of a
murder trial near Kansas City ho
wished to learn from a witness Just
where tho bullet struck the victim.
"Where was this man shot?" was
asked. "Right hero in this town," replied the witness. "Yob, I know, but
where did the bullet hit him?" "Near
Sixth and Wyoming streets." "You
don't understand me. Where did the
bullet enter?" "It came ln the window." "But in what part of the body
did It lodge?" "It never hit his body."
"Woll, lt certainly hit him somewhere
—ho is dead." "Hit him in tho head,"
said the witness.

Cool Kitchens
This warm Summer Weather is vory trying to Housekeepers.   The
heat of the cool and wood stove is simply unbearable.
Kitchen drudgery iB reduced to a minimum by the uso of the GAS
STOVE and GAS HOT PLATES.   Meals can be prepared quiokly
aud well without heating tho whole hftuse.
Housekeepers with a GAS STOVE have much more time for recreation than those who use the coal and wood stoves.
Iu our Demonstrating and Show Room we have many styles and
makes sot up for examination and trial.   Call nnd see them.
