"Inquiry as to his habits developed
the fact that he was a patron of the
public library. I got a list of the
books he read. They were mostly of
a philosophical character, tending to
atheism. Among the rest was a French
novel which he had borrowed several
times. 1 took it to the hotel to
read and kill time. In it 1
found the full explanation of hib
suicide. The hero of the book was a
poor and romantic young man. He
insured his life for the benefit of his
wife, and then went on an expedition
to the Alps, and at the proper point
made a misstep and rolled down a pre

An Embassador's Privileges.
Hitherto--except on special occa
sions this country has only been
represented by Embassadors in six
European realms the Empires of Aus
tria, Turkey, Russia and Germany,
the kingdom of Italy, and imperial,
royal and republican France. Not a
quarter of a century ago there were
only four British embassies abroad,
although the United Kingdom was, of
course, diplomatically represented at
every foreign court. It was not until
the unification and consolidation of
Germany had been completed by
William I of Prussia that our Legation
in Berlin became an Embassy. The
achievement of Italian unity under
Victor Emmanuel suggested and ob
taincd a similar complimentary acknow
ledgment on the part of our gracious
sovereign. It is unquestionably a
judicious and popular "new departure"
to emphasize, so to speak, the amicable
nature of the relations happily obtain
ing between the two great English
speaking nations by placing our official
representation in the capital of the
Union upon the highest attainable
footing of diplomatic dignity and dis
tinction. An hmbassador, as the per
sonal representative of his own sov
ereign, has the right of access to the
monarch or chief of the State to whom
he is accredited a privilege which
cannot be claimed by, although it is
frequently accorded to a Minister
Plenipotentiary or Envoy Extraordi
