Friendly contests of skill and intelli
gence are always in vlgoiatlng among a
people who live by  competition and
rivalry in business nnd profession,   All
people glory  in contests among  themselves, and in  matching  the'r  powers
wiih each other for the sport there is
in  it,  nml for mutual benefit.     Such
contests bring out the best  there  is in
people, and educate (hem to a standard
of excellence difficult to obtain by any
other means,
Tliis friendly rivalry may he Btatcd
ns one of tlie leading objects of the Kelson li nit fair.    It. is not confined lo individuals  and  local  distiict only,  but
embraces nil the well known  fruit and
vegetable a* eas of the province.    Each
and all are invited  to compete lor  the
very liberal prizes off* red,  whether  it
be as individuals or as a cpmmuiii'Y���

While it may be argued that tlie Nelson fruit fair is limited in is use'ulness
to n particular section only, thc fact remains thrt it attracts exhibitors fiom
I the provinces east of the Rockies and
I from south of iha international bounds* y line, and Ihii yenr tlie competitors
from those points will be greater in
number than heretofore.
As an educational feature, the fair,
no matter wlitie held, has  always been
acknowledged lo bo   superior  to any
other.    Much  of the success attendant
on Ihe efforts oi the Nelson Association
hns been dun to thu fact.    Scores of I
p:opie iiave profited by  the knowledge *
gained,  a-d   insight obtained  into thc
proper methods of fruit and vegetable
cullmo, iiii*l the prepaiing of ihe products  for  ma'ket,   as   exemplified  nt
past fiuit fairs in Nelson.    And  it is ;
safe to presume ns the institution advances,   many scores more will bo educated along  these lines,  and  will  be
thankful for lhe opportunities  afforded
to gain valuable information suited to
their needs.

.-tne was sini In lier boudoir putting

was waiting in ber salon. Mme. de
Montespan could hardly believe in sueh
,;**>od fortune. She hud racked her
bruin nil morning ns to how she should
win her way to him, aud bere he was
Waiting for her.
He hnd come witli every intention of
beginning the interview by telling ber
bluntly of his marriage, but uow, as
be looked upon her beauty and her
love, he felt that it would bave been
less brutal to strike her down nt his
feet. Let some one else tell her, then.
She would know soon enough. All this
run swiftly through liis mind, aud she
as swiftly rend it off In his brown eyes.
"You have something you came to
sny, and now you bnve not tbe heart
to sny It. God bless the kindly heart
���Which checks the cruel tongue!"
"No, no, madame," said Louis. "I
���would not be cruel. I cannot forget
that my life bus been brightened nnd
my court made brilliant during all
these yenrs by your wit and your beauty. But times change, madame, and
for every renson 1 think that it is best
that we should arrange in the wny
which we discussed the other dny nnd
that you shonld withdraw yourself
from the court."
"Withdraw, sire!   For how long?"
"It must be n permanent withdrawal, madame. 1 need not suy that I
ibull make your retirement a bappy
one as far as in me lies. Your allowance shall be fixed by yourself. A palace shall be creeled for you in whatever pnrt of France you may prefer,
provided tbat it is twenty miles from
raids.   An estate also''���
"Ob, sire, bow enn you think thnt
sucb things ns these would compensnte
me for the loss of your love?" Her
heart had turned to lead within her
breast. Had he spoken hotly and angrily she might have hoped to turn him
as she had done before, but this gentle and yet firm bearing was new to
him, and sbe felt that nil her arts were
vain against it.
"Madame," said he, "I have thought
well over this matter, and It must be
as I say. There is no other way at all.
I have ordered your brother to hnve
his carriage at the postern at 9 o'clock,
for I thought that perhaps you would
���wish to retire after nightfall."
"To hide my shame from a laughing
court! It was thoughtful of you, sire.
And yet perhaps this, too, was a duty,
since we hear so much of duties nowadays, for who wns it but you"���
"I know, madame, I know. I confess it. I hnve wronged you deeply.
Believe me that every atonement which
ls in my power shall be made. Nay, do
not look so angrily at me, I beg. Let
our Inst sight of each other be one
which may leave a pleasant memory
behind it."
"A pleasant memory!" All the gentleness and humility had fallen from
her now, and ber voice had the hard
ring of contempt and of anger. "A
pleasant memory! It may well be
pleasant to you, who are released from
the woman -whom you ruined, who can
turn now to another without any pale
face te bo seen within the salons of
your court to remind you of your perfidy. But to me, pining in some lonely
country house, spurned by my husband, despised by my family, tho scorn
and jest of France, far from all which
gave a charm to life, fnr from the man
for whose love I have sacrificed everything���this will be a very plensunt
memory to me, you may bo sure."
The king's eyes had caught the angry
gleam which shot from bers, and yet
be strove hard to set a curb upon his
temper. He felt that it was for him
to do so, and yet it did uot come kindly
to his imperious nature.
"There is nothing to be gained, madame," said be, "by using words which
nre neither seemly for your tongue nor
for my ears. You will do me the justice to confess that where I might command I am now entreating."
"Oh, you show too much consideration, sire! Our relations of twenty
years or so enn senrce suffice to ex-
plaln such forbearance from you."
"Your words nre bitter, madame.
Franeolse, bo reasonable, I implore you.
XVe havo both left our youth behind."
"The allusion to my years comes
gracefully from your lips."
"Ah, you distort my words. Then I
shnll sny no more. You mny not see

"Pain! Where is the pain in your

becnuse you feel that your vile task
is done."
"My patience enn benr no more!"
cried tlie king furiously. "I leave you,
madame, and forever!"
But her fury bnd swept nil fenr nnd
discretion from her mind. She stepped between tlio door and bim, her

thrust a little forward, one smnll white

disappointment Inst night, wns It not,
my poor sire? All, nnd for the governess, whut a blow! Great heaven, what
a blow! No archbishop, no marriage,

it not cruel?"
Louis gazed at the beautiful, furious
fnce in bewilderment, nnd It flashed
across his mind that perhaps ber grief

He hnd hoped to please her and to
calm ber, but in nn iustnnt sbe was
over at her treasure cupboard burling
double bnndl'uls of precious stones
down at his feet. They clinked nnd

"They will do for the governess if

Museum-like Homes Mean Mausoleums of  Happiness.
An article on the awful tyranny of,
things Is always to the point We cannot be too often reminded of the useless things���bric-a-brac���and the things
thnt arc too good to use. Tbe following ls from the House Beautiful:
We pride ourselves on having won
freedom from the tyranny of kings,
but what about the tyranny of things?
There is no gainsaying it, we are
slaves of our belongings.
How things In a shop window "pull"
at the purse strings! How "dirt cheap"
is each particular thing In itself! Altogether they are tempting as the glittering serpent of old.
Only when Installed, how does their
glamour suddenly vanish! Howoftendo
we find ourselves with white elephants
on our unwilling liands! Possibly it ls
a reproduction of an old fashioned mahogany davenport, a goodly thing ln
Itself, but, nlns, it cramps our drawing
room to suffocation.
Tossibly it is a sofa cushion we needed. The shops' variety was so perplexing we cut the Gordion knot of choice
by purchasing three instead of one,
and thereby we are smothered by our
own Ingo taste.
Pictures and prints and oriental rugs
seem of a higher plane. It Is to cultivate the aesthetic sensibilities, to study
art, to compare various examples and
at last to arrive nt the possession of
one excellent print or picture or sur-
pnssing rug. But the mania grows.
The sense of proportion between our
Income nnd our other possession fails
to keep tbe pace. We keep ou picking
up pictures or prints or rugs. A "find"
ls a find, nnd we cannot stop to consider Its relation or no to the other
"finds" ln the house. Thus in a short
whilo we cannot find ourselves at all
under the bewildering mnss of our belongings.
Hard Is It for us to remember that a
museum and a home are two different
things. And If we make onr homes
miniature museums we nre too likely
to see them turn into mausoleums ol
nil future quiet nnd happiness.
One family of which we know has
laws like unto those of the Medes and
Persians us to what things shall or
shall not enter its sanctum. This family considers the homo In somewhat
the light of a club, nnd the Idea ls carried out by the casting of a ballot for
and against every new article proposed
tor admission.
The result justifies the method. Tbat
borne Is utterly refreshing. It has attained that rare quality���harmony.
Always Ready Lemonade.
Tbere is nothing more refreshing on
B hot duy than a long drink of cool
lemonade; but, however anxious the
hostess may be to serve this beverage,
it ls sometimes impossible to do so
owing to the luck of necessnry Ingredients. In fact, It Is for just this reason thnt the sirup thnt may be prepared by the following recipe Is one
of the greatest of household conveniences; It Is delicious, but, what rs still
more important, it enables one to procure n supply of lemonade literally at a
moment's notice, snys tbe May Delineator: Extract the juice from a dozen
large lemons; grate the rind of six of
the lemons nnd add It to the juice.
Let the mixture stand for twelve hours
or overnight. In the morning mnke a
thick sirup of granulated sugar and
water, using about six pounds of tho
sugar and just ns little water as possible, as the sirup must be both thick
and smooth. Wheu it has cooled, strait
tho lemon juice into It. Bottle In gluss,
being certain that the tops are secure
and air tight. In making lemonade
with this sirup place a little crushed
Ice in tho bottom of n tall glass, add
ono or two teaspoonfuls of the sirup,
according to taste, and fill with either
carbounted or plain water.
This sirup may also be used successfully in making cakes, pies, puddiugs,
custards, etc., being a most economical
method of utilizing lemons, ns It enables tho cook to obtnin absolutely tbe
full valuo of both sugar nnd fruit.
Surely this ls a fact worthy of consideration by tbe economical housewife.

Small children with tlie common
skin diseases such us eczema, are
pitiable. The constant itch makes
tliem tear and scratch the affected
parts, thus hindering the healing process, and worst of all it spreads over
Wie hands and face until it becomes
a serious disease.
For sucli troubles as Eczema, Salt
Rheum, Pimples, Bushes, Scalds,
Burns, etc., there is nothing better
than Dr. Chase's Ointment. It immediately stops all itching or paining from burns nnd scalds, so the
sore gets a chance to heal by not being aggravated by scratching. It also takes out ull poison and a'.lows

Just   Fifty   Year.    Ago   Since   That
Eventful  Day.
It is just fifty years ago since the
young gunner, Lieut. Frederick
Sleigh Roberts splendidly won his
Victoria Cross. The occasion was so
conspicuous and his gallantry was so
marked that the honor, whicli many
soldiers thought was more than due
for earlier brilliant services, evoked
a general endorsement throughout the
army of his having well earned the
distinction. But the daring and resolute young officer who has since fulfilled the promise ot his whole military career in every capacity, from
cadet to field-marshal, is both brief
nnd reticent about the affair, where
occasion waited upon his spirit and
prowess just after the action at Kho-
dngunge. by the banks of the Kali
Nndi, or. Jan. 2, 1858.
From first to Inst Roberts hns been
a veritable modern Paladin, straightforward, nlert, n d bold snns reproche.
In 1855. when, young nnd ingenuous,
he set out to return to India to take
up his career, he wns imbued with
n high sense of his duty to the sovereign nnd to the stnte. From Delhi to
Cnwnpore nnd Lucknow, and through
the Inter years of the mutiny, he
cheerfully accepted nnd hastened to
discharge whatever wns ordered by
his superiors. It seems ns if the men
of those times lived in another ngc���
or rather plnce, than this modern
world of achieving promotion by
"sharp turnover" and strict attention
to "biz."
But much of this is npnrt. When
I.ucknow wns evacuated by Sir Colin
Campbell nnd troops started to march
to Fatehgarh to restore order in Donb
nnd open up eommiuiientions through
the Punjnub to Bengnl, young Roberts (in n position upon Sir Hope
Grant's stnff) accompanied tlie force
ft will be remembered how well he
hnd behaved in notion time nnd time
ngnin. and how, under Sir Colin's orders, he had thrice replaced the Union
Jack upon the mess-house at Luck-
now, thnt Outram might know the
relieving force wns drawing nenr to
the Residency. Well, durinr* tlie subsequent advance towards Fatehgarh
one of the standing regimental rival
ries precipitated events. The 53rd
Regiment thought they were being
held bnck for the 93rd, so they mnde
a precipitate dash to carry the defences of Khodagunge. And the 93rd.
fearing that they were going to be
nowhere, raced nfter them, whereupon
the enemy broke and bolted. Then

On the instant he snurred his charger to the rescue. There wns not one

and spurred after them. As he rode
nwny, it is snid thnt when he had
gone one or two sownrs or troopers
followed nfter, to render assistance
if necessary. But it was not required.
Roberts soon overtook the fugitives,
grippad and wrenched the standard
from the hands of its bearer, cutting
him down in the sharp fierce struggle. The other Sepoy, thrusting forward, nlmost bent his musket against
Robert's side, then pulled the trigger. Luckily the piece missed fire,
and ere tlie man could escape or repent the attack lie was dealt with by
a soldier who galloped upon the scene.
So Roberts, in less time nlmost than
il, takes to tell, saved life upon tlie
battlefield, by no means for the first
time, nnd captured a standard of the
enemy's. It was a grent return into
camp Unit night for our men. Old

The   Impression   on   Ascending   In   a
Free  Balloon.
One of the first questions which I am
usually asked by persons seeking Information about balloons ls, "Wbat Is
the sensation of going up In a balloon?"
writes Captain C. DeF. Chandler, D.
S. A. I will anticipate this same Inquiry of the readers of this article and
state for tbelr information that In a
free balloon I bave uot noticed any peculiar physical sensation which can be
described. It would be like trying to
describe standing still as n sensation.
The Impression on ascending In a free
balloon is more an optical illusion. The
ascent is so slow and gentle that il
cannot be felt, and one has tbe Impression that the balloon Is motionless and
tbe earth gradually dropping away. All
the noises und shouts of the people become fainter and die out. As tbo alti
tude increases hills and valleys nre not
apparent, and the earth seems flat, like
a beautiful colored map, showing cultivated fields, forests, etc.
Tho greater part of the time a balloon Is moving either up or down, but
the motion is uot apparent, and It requires a statoscope to indicate whether
the balloon is ascending or descending.
If a considerable change of altitude ls
made ln a short time, the difference in
nir pressure may be felt on the ear

Lloyd-George Now the Second Man In
the Country���Rapid Advancement.
Mr. Lloyd-George is now the second
man in the Liberal party, and therefore, for the time bping, in the country. He was, of course, predestined
for promotion. Among many successful Ministers he has been the most
In the past two years he has raised
from a comparatively minor office to
the highest level of prominence and
utility. He has averted great industrial
conflicts; he has passed some bold and
beneficent measures; he has tackled
and solved problems, such, for example, as the Port of London problem,
that his predecessors found insoluble;
he has shown himself to be beyond
comparison, the business man of the
The nation that only a few years
ago was ready to stone him now realizes that it has possessed in the President of the Board of Trade an asset
of the first value. Everyone likes him;
everyone trusts him. His union of a
warm nature with a hard head has
brought him the affectionate confidence of the country. He is the Ministerial handyman. When it is known
that Mr. Lloyd-George has taken up a
question people cease to worry about
it. It has come to be nlmost nn article of faith with the masses nnd in
the world of business that ho cannot
Even, however, about Mr. Lloyd-
George opinion is not quite unanimous. The Spectator's meusured voice
has broken the chorus of approval.
That admirable organ is n little nervous about Mr. Lloyd-George. It finds
him restless, unstable, too much of a
politician, too little of n stntesmnn,
secretive, with no "judicial aloofness," flighty and irresponsible in the
charming Celtic wny, liable at any
moment to kick over the traces, and
not "orthodox" on the question of
Free Trade. And in part The Spectator is ritrht.
Mr. Lloyd-George is a Welshman.
He is ns Welsh as O'Connell was
Irish. One would have to go back to
the days of Owen Glendower to discover a leader who has won to an
equal degree the enthusiasm that Mr.
Lloyd-Georpe commands among his
warm-hearted and impressionable
countrymen. On all questions of domestic politics liis voice is the voice
of the Principality. Gallant little
Wales has in him a gallant little
champion���but a champion who does
not hesitate to go against the convictions of his followers when he thinks
it right.
Ho did so during the Boer war. He
made himself tlio most intensely hated
of all pro-Boers. But we are not a
resentful people, and we admire courage. When men think to-day of the
war and of Mr. Lloyd-George's connection with it. they think of a man
who may have been misguided, wrong-
headed, mischievous even, but who
had, at any rate, the supreme political courage tn stake his career on his
conscience. The ordeal of those exciting yenrs did much to mature his
powers. He developed into a brilliant
Parliamentarian. Humor, passion,
sincerity, the quick-moving mind of
tlie (Ielt, and a genuine gift for clear,
fresh exposition made him at times
more than a match for Mr. Chamberlain himself.
The Education Bill of 1002 pave him
yet ampler scope for pungent attack.
As a Welshman and a Nonconformist
it bitterly offended him. and he threw
himself upon it with a dash and vehemence that thrilled his countrymen
with something of ths fervor of a
religious revival. Who" the Tariff
Reform movement wns launched, Mr.
Lloyd-George found another opportunity to hand. He shared with Mr. As-
quith nnd Mr. Winston Churchill the
distinction of being the most effective
nnd sparkling of all the upholders of
Free Trade.
With the legal eye. fnr a weak argument nnd the legal gift for luminous and precise speaking, he has n
f'eitic touch of idealism, zealotry, and
imagination thnt makes him on n pub
lie platform one nf the most refresh
ing of speakers. There is c t.remen
dons nir of life about hlm. He is n
mnn who, though he hits with nil his
might, is utterly destitute of malice oi
pettiness. To see his frank and engaging smile is to knew him for the
generous nature he is His succes?
in managing men, in piloting bilb
through Parliament, in composing dis
putes, springs partly from the possession of great tact nnd experience, nnd
pnrtly from nn nlmost instnntnneniu*
perception of what is essential ns well
as of what is possible, hut chiefly
from the reflex notion of his open and
winning personality upon those witli
whom he is denling.
The Lloyd-Georpe who addresses hip
own countrymen nnd the Lloyd-Georpe
who speaks nt Westminster seem to
the uninitiated Englishman two different persons. In Wales he will let himself go with nn exuberance that mnke?
the ordinary Englishman mutter
something nbout "Uie Celtic tempera

equal naturalness, none more saga

any harm, and it is probably an im

Welsh hills.

Exception   to   Rule   That   Familiarity
Breeds Contempt.
The Swiss Alps, known to the Cau
caslan race loug before Hannibal aud
Julius Caesar led the Carthaginian and
Roman legions through their passes,
are an exception to the rule that familiarity breeds contempt. Although
known for so many centuries, It is only
within the last hundred years that the
chiefest of the great family of mountain momirchs crowding the Swiss confederacy have been conquered. It was
not until 1805 that lhe Matterhorn was
first ascended. Thousands today mako

hundreds of peaks more thau 10,000
feet lu height their summer playground. They never trifle with the
summits, however, and the ascension
of some of tbe mountains today Is considered a feat almost worthy of more
than local record.
There nre many legends told of the
neighborhood of the Matterhorn. One
is about the origin of the mime of the
Theodule pass, which joins Piedmont,
Italy, and the canton of Valals, be
tween the Matterhorn and the Iireit*
horn, at arrelevatlon of lO.DUO feet It
Is supposed lo commemorate the name
of St. Theodule, who lived In the fourth
century and was the first bishop of
Sion, ruling for tcu years, from 381 to
301. The remarkable manner of his
passage, according to tradition, of this
elevated gateway out of Italy on one
occasion was the origin of the name.
The pope had given the prelate a fine
bell In recognition of his efforts In ob
tabling lhe conversion of tbe valley of
the Itlione to Christian liy. The bell
was for some time n white elephant on
his hands. He did not know how to
get It over the Alps iuto his sep. At
this juncture Satan appeared and of
fered to carry the bell and the bishop
on his buck over to Sion if the bishop
would agree to give over the dominion
of his soul forever to the prince of
darkness iu the event of the completion of die task before cockcrow. The
bargniu was struck and the journey
begun. Long before dawn the devil
had reached the city walls nud wns
about to bound over when the bishop,
fearful of the consequences, cried.
"Crow, cocks, crow, or forever hold
your peace!" Immediately the roosters
crowed and thus formed the habit ol
crowing betimes In the morning. Sa
tan, seeing victory slipping from his
clutch, became so angry that be hurled
the bell with nil bis force, and It was
burled many feet in the ground.
Unlike the Matterhorn, the Jungfrau,
In the Bernese Alps, did not resist so
long the efforts to reach Its summit.
Iu 1811 lbe Meyers of Aarau climbed
to the crest oC the slender, majestic
white mountain. While iu the course
of the succeeding forty yenrs the
ascent was made ouly four times, to*
dny it is accomplished not infrequent
ly. The frowning crest of the Matterhorn was not attained till 1805

When Animals "Talk."
Silence 13 not absolutely iieccssury
for the sufety of wild animals, says a
naturalist who recently spent some
time In African forests. Wild animals
nre not so noisy and "talkative" as
are those of domestic life; but, then,
the wilder tribes of mankind nre more
taciturn than the civilized races. This
Is mainly due In both cases to the luck
of social Intimacy and noiundlc habits.
The carnivorous animals, the only natural cnuse of fenr the other creutures
have, depend uinlnly upon their sense
of smell. They also hunt by night,

The   Schooner   Erie   Belle,   a Vessel
With a  History.
The old schooner Erie Belle, which
has lain in the harbor at Chippnwa
for the past dozen years, is now being dismantled. Her works over the
waterline will be destroyed, and the
portion of the hull that lies below the
water will be fixed up and used as a
tool seow.
The Erie Belle was at one time the
belle of the lakes. She was a three-
master with double topsail and topgallant sail. She was the only schooner on the lake with five jibs. On
her masts there were three bells in
token of her name*. She was built
by Youell, of Port Burwoll, in 1873
und was sniled hy her owner, Cnpt
John MucDcrmott, a Highland
Scotchman. She was next under the
command of Cnpt. Duncan Macleod.
and during his time she once met with
a serious mishap on Lake Erie. In a
heavy storm sho was dismasted. The
tug Mary took her to Port Huron
for repairs. Her last owner and master was Cnpt. Duncan Manson, who
now lives retired in Rrantford. She
hnd taken n load of pulp to Ln Salle,
nnd while unloading the crew went on
strike for unpaid wages. The story
runs that the captain, seizing a favorable opnn*'t"iiity, single-handed
ran hor out Into the Niagara river.
and getting the help of a friendly
tug, slipped down to Chippewa nnd
tied hor up. Hero she was seized by
a Port Hope liank that held a mortgage nn her, nnd it was destined that
she should  never sail  again.
She wns n trim schooner on the
dny she reached Chippawa, and as
the weeks and monlhs went by she
rotted to pieces. To-day you conld
crush through her timbers with your
foot. Were you to jump on the deck
you would be in danger of going

How a Japanese Maid Interpreted His
Mr. Frederic Villiers, the famous
war artist, has probably seen as much
aeitve service as any living army veteran. He gained his first experience
as a war artist in Servia as far back
as 1870, and since that time he has
traveled nearly all over the world. In
1882 he was on board the Condor witli
Lord Charles l'eresford at the bombardment of Alexandria; he accompanied the Nile expedition for the relief of Ehartdum; he went through
the South African campaign; and had
some thrilling adventures during thi
recent Russo-Japanese war. Mr. Villiers was the first to introduce thr
cinematograph camera on to the battlefield, and he was also tho first correspondent to use a bicycle during a
Mr. Villiers and a friend, who fan
ciecl himself an artist, were once visiting a tea-house in Japan, and a little
Japanese girl brought them each n
tiny cup of tea, and waited demurely
for further orders. The visitors tried
to explain that they were both exceedingly hungry and would like a
substantial meal; but their limited
knowledge of Japanese quite failed to
make the waitress understand their
At last Mr* Villiers suggested that
his friend should try her with pictures. "Draw a fish, an egg, a loaf
of bread and a bottle of beer," said
he; "she can't misunderstand you
So the hungTy visitor got out pencil
and paper and did as he was bid.
When he had finished, the girl smiled,
nodded, and disappeared with the
drawing. On her return, the visitors
naturally looked forward to a good
dinner; but their chagrin can be imagined when she solemnly offered them
instead two folded bath gowns, a couple of towels, and a cake of soap I
Member of the Fourth Estate Who Sits
In the  House of  Lords.
Lord Lucas, who has been appointed private secretary to Mr. Haldane,
can be claimed as a member of tho
Fourth Estate, for he is not only a
journalist himself, but the son of a
journalist. As Mr. Aubnron Herbert,
he went out to the South African war
as representative of The Times, and
wns wounded in the early days of the
campaign. But it was not till June
last that ho was elevated to the peerage. The bluest of blue blood runs in
his veins. On the side of his fnthcr,

House of Commons when Mr. Glad

tiarvon, Pembroke and l'owis, while
through his mother, a sister of tlie
last Earl Cowper, be inherited his
English barony of Lucas and tlie Scottish  barony  of   Dingwall.
Tho Lucas peerage was originally
conferred by Charles II. curiously
enough on a woman. Since the reign
of George f. the title had been held
by peeresses, and Lord Lucas regained it only last year, after a remarkable hearing of his claim by the Committee for Privileges of the House of
Lords. The fact that his son has now
the right to sit in the House of Lords
would have horrified the elder Mr.
Herbert had lie been alive, for when
member for Nottingham he declaimed
vigorously against the powers a*id
privileges of that House.
Tree 800 Years Old Destroyed.
One of the seven fine old oaks in
Salcey Forest, Northamptonshire, was
burned down recently. It is surmised that some visitors to the forest
made a picnic fire in the hollow trunk,
the result being tlie complete destruction of the tree, which is said to have
been 800 years old. The commission- j
ers have now given Instructions to tlie
ranger that no picnic parties will be
allowed in future, nnd that trespassers*
in the forest will be leverely Heal!

"This Union is rapidly hastening
