"Louis XVI. wns a peaceable and
gentle monarch, who, In the course of
his long reign, showed himself particu

by his people, the aged monarch died

result of a fit of apoplexy. lie wag
succeeded by his son, Louis XVII.,
who was obliged to conduct several
wars, wherein the captain of his hosts,
the royal marshal, Napoleon Bona

abused his power and made a public
attempt to rebel against his liege lord
and to compass his own ambitious
ends. Under the leadership of Alex

Russlas, the general was deposed, de
prived of all his honors and dignities
and all claims to pension. He was
banished to St. Helena."
"Omnibus" was an almost brand
new word in its modern sense when
Shillibeer took it from the French In
1820, and in France the name pos
sessed a special significance for those
who knew their history, for from 1072
to 1070 Taris had already seen a regu
lar service of roomy public vehicles,
"carosses a cina sous." Onlv these
predecessors of the modern bus were
not "omnibus" for all. The letters
patent which instituted them for the
Deneht of middle class neonle laid
down that they were not to be used bv
soldiers, lackeys or any otlier wearers
of livery or artisans and laborers.

"I don't know anything about Mur

"but I know that Mr. Ramsey Is big

THE OLD YORK ROAD.
Built In 1711, It Was the First Great
Something over 200 years ago there
was built the first great American
highway, "tho old York road," be
tween New York nud Philadelphia.
Tho construction of this famous rond
in 1711 was an example that led the
energetic colonists nt other points
along the Atlantic seaboard to make
similar roads where there were no wa
ter routes. For the most part these
roads were built by chartered compa
nies and wore called turnpikes or toll
roads. Pennsylvania, Connecticut and
New Jersey had many roads of this
The first macadamized rond in this
country was constructed in 1T02 be
tween Philadelphia and Lancaster. In
1S11 there were said to be 4,500 miles
of chartered turnpikes in New Eng
land nnd New York. During the next
twenty years the government expend
ed many millions of dollars in con
structing great highways, but the pan
ic of 1837 nnd the building of rail
ways and canals put an end to that
branch of the government work.

Following a disastrous fire in a west
ern city, many men and women gath
ered to look at the ruins. Some of the
men, seeing that a wall near whlclj
they were standing was topping, made
haste to get out of the way and nar
rowly escaped being crushed.
Johnny lira bison, a good Irish citi
zen, wns so near the wall that he could
not escape with the others. So, whirl
ing about, he made for a door in the
wall, burst through it and came out on
the other side safe and evidently very
proud of his exploit. Women who had
shut their eyes and shrieked when they
saw his danger now gathered round
him in great Joy and cried out:
'Traise heaven, Johnny Brablson,
down on your knees nnd thank heav
en!" "Yis, yis," said he, "and I will, but
wasn't it injaneyyous in me, now?"
One of the strangest diseases Is
known as kublsngari. It is common
in northern Japan and In n small dis
trict on the Franco-Swiss frontier, but
unknown elsewhere. Its symptoms
are a suddeu paralysis of certain mus
cles, loss of vision and vertigo. The
attacks last about ten minutes and
continue from May to November, re
covery always coming in the autumn.
Nothing is known about its cause,
though Dr. P. L. Couchaud describes
In the Presse Medicale a microbe he
found in the cerebro spinal fluid and
the milk of persons suffering from the
disease. The name kublsngari Is Jap
anese and means "drop head."
