THE HOUSE OF CHESTERFIELD.
A VAM1I.Y THAT HAH NI'.MIII'Ili'.l)
AMONU ITS MEMIIUllS MANV
GIFTED AND ILLUSTI1I-
The London despatches announce
that George Phillip Stanhope, Karl
of Giicstct field, is dead, aged sixty
slx years. Tho casual reader of tho
brief notice will pause only to re
member that it was an Kail of
Chesterfield who wrote the famous
letters to his son, and madu his own
name this familiar synonym of grace
and elegance. But tho dead Earl
represented not only the nobility of
a great family ; he was the titled
representative of a race of illustrious
men, who were distinguished as
authors, poets and act-
The wit and grace of the best
known Chesterfield came through his
mother from one of the most dis
tinguished men of tho time of Wil
liam III. He was George Savile,
Marquis of IInlifax, commonly
known in history as Lord Halifax.
Speaking of his deatii in 1GSI5,
Mucuulnysays. "Ho was the most
accomplished, the most enlightened,
and in spite of great faults, the
most estimable of the statesmen who
were formed in tho corrupt and
licentious Whitehall of the Restora
tion." His daughter married the
third Earl of Chesterfield, and their
son was Philip Dormer Stanhope,
whose letters to his son have made
his name so famous.
The wit and genius of Halifax
did not confine themselves to the
legitimate line of descent, and tho
bar sinister was no impediment to
their rich inheritance. Tho accom
plished statesmen left a natural son,
by name Henry Carey, dramatist
and poet, whose plays are no longer
played, but whose anthem, "God
Savo the King," will likely bo sung
by millions as long as there are
English people to sing it. And from
this Henry Carey descended, still
with the bar sinister and the genius
of his great ancestor, Edmund
Kcan, the famous actor. Here is a
study in heredity and environment.
Chesterfield, in his own language,
"sacrificed to the graces;" Carey
yielded to the muses, and Kcan was
a thespian votary. And here, too,
is a study in possibilities. Henry
Carey was the half-brother of
Chesterfield's mother. Suppose
their escutcheons exchanged. Carey
would havo been tho Marquis of Halt
fax and might have been a great
statesman, but likely enough Eng
lish hearts would not now throb to
"God Save tho Queen." Edmund
Kcan, instead of being remembered
ns a great actor, would have been a
respectable peer, forgotten probably
with his death. Chesterfield, doubt
less, would have had the run of the
theatres and tho company of the
men of wit, but we would have had
no code of elegance and politeness,
with generosity and morality elimi
nated, such as the gracious Earl has
bequeathed to posterity.
Rut something of credit is due to
tho Stanhope side of the house, of
which Carey and Kean are no parcel.
The Stanhopes boast of three peer
ages: Chesterfield, Stanhope and
Harrington. The Hon. Alexander
Stanhope was a younger son of the
first Earl of Chesterfield, and was a
distinguished diplomatist in about
Queen Anne's time. His descend
ants were conspicuous in statecraft,
literature and war. Tho Halifax
blood did not flow in their veins. An
Earl Stanhope was created. The
third Earl married Hester Pitt,
daughter of the great Lord Chatham.
Their eldest daughter was Lady
Hester Jvuuy Stanhope.
Wo all know "The Burial of Sir
John Moore." His deeds deserved
to be remembered, but he has been
immortalized by verse. As the jiero
was dying he turned to Capt. Stan
hope of his staff, and said: "Stan
hope, remember me to your sister."
These wero his last words. By fho
struggling moonbeams' misty light,
and with only his martial cloak
around him, they carried the war
rior to tho ramparts. Slowly and
sadly thoy laid him down, and in
the grave whoro tbcjr hcio they
buried, it is supposed tlicy also
buried tho love and expectancy of
Lucy Stanhope. If Halifax gave to
his grandson, Chestci field, wit and
eloquence, Chatham gave his grand
daughter vchomence aud stormy
passion. TJjc granddaughter of
Chatham, the mistress pf the house
hold of her uncle, William Pitt, tho
object of the admiration of Sir
John Moore, sho displayed nil tho
charming accomplishments that came
with the Stanhope blood. But when
misfortunes came, with her uncle
dead and her lover carried, fresh
and gory, from the field of his famo
to his unscpultured grave, tho pas
sion and bitterness of the stormy
Chatham fell upon her, and she
spurned and turned hor back upon
tho world sho had known.
Sho wandered about tho shores of
the Mediterranean for a few years,
and then, to get further slill from
civilization, site sought a homo
among the half barbarous tribes of
Mount Lebanon. S)w adopted tho
faith, the manners an,d Uio garb of
tho East, and for nearly a quarter
of a century was tho pbject of th.o
curiosity and speculation of travel
ers and tho awo and reverence of
her barbarian associates. Her lover
had died, surrounded by his friends,
but with no time for' tho affectionate
and impressive ceremonies with
which soldiers testify their
over it dead comrade. Sho
without an cm ly friend near
without even one of her own race to
give her a sympathetic look, not a
civilized hand to close her eyes.
The uncouth people about her dug
a grave in her garden and laid her
away, giving no thought to the fact
that she was Lady Hester Lucy
Stanhope, of the blood of the one of
tho oldest and proudest families of
England, granddaughter of Eng
land's greatest minister, and beloved
by one of England's most heroic
But about the dead Earl across
thu water: He is a dead peer of dis
tinguished Ilncaiio anil some public)
service, but among tho many erratic
and gifted people of his house lie is
not sullicicnlly conspicuous to bo
made more than a text for comment.

Indigestion or dyspepsia, and n small

when it has obtained a stiong hold the
correct lemedy should bo persevered lu
until every vestige of the discaso is

"Gentlemen, It is with great pleas

wonderful effects of Scigcl's Syrup. For

then a mist would come before my eyes,
so that I should not be able to recngnlso

be followed by excessive trembling of
my knees, so that 1 could not stand
without support; after which a severe
headache would occur, lasting often two

but until I tried Selgol's Kyi up I. had no
