In the calamities of tho present year
It is easy enough to Imagine a connec
tion, for all may bo explainable as duo
to cosmic forces of some sort. In an
other dreadful year, that of lfiGC, in
N. England, there Is no apparent reason
why one disaster followed another.
That was the year following tho occur
rence of tho black plague, which had
swept over London, completing Its dev
astation by leaving 100,000 dead. Then
came the grcnt flro that ato out tho
central portlo nof London. Spain suf
fered from a great drought that dried
up the springs and shriveled tho crops.
At the samo tlmo tho fertilo fields ot
Germany and tho Hhlno Valley wero
laid waste, by floods. Italy was shak
en with earthquakes. Thcro were
signs In the heavens, and there, wero
numerous bloody wars. All Europe
was terrified nnd turned to religion, so
that, as tho historian says, "tho
churches were better filled than the
oldest priests jiould remember ever to
havo Been them."
The year 17C5 wns mado an "annus

and Palcstlno were the center of dis
turbance, 500 cities and villages being

Tho Jews look back to D. C. 40 as
their great "annus mlrnbllls." It was
tho tlmo of the horrors of tho Parthian

It was announced that tho concern had

from tho dato of the recent operation.
Don't bo astonished at nnythlng you

Tho concern Is tho most femarkablo,

' Lloyds" will take a chance on any
thing, from tho genuineness of an al
leged Panama hat to tho number of
minutes a stricken monarch can cling
to llfo. "Lloyds" Is the most gigantic
ueiuiig institution In the world.
Parliamentary attention was called
to the quccrness of its nrocccdlnEs lone
ago, but ns a commission appointed to
Investigate could not find cause to con
demn tho methods cmploied, "Lloyds"
continued to flourish nnd stake money
on the most txtrnordlnary ilsks, losing
heally at times, but, llko most pro
fessional gamblers, winning largely In
the long run.
"Lloyds" sprang Into existence early
In the set cntecnth century. It owed Its
origin to the fact that ono Edward
Lloyd kept a coffee house In Tower
street, where sea captains and ship
owners congregated to talk "shon."
Gradually the coffee feature was elimi
nated and the place was given up en
tirely to speculation on tho fato of
ships and enrgoes In transit.
There were seventy-nine members of
this original Lloyds, and their method
was to risk a certain sum on tho safe
arrival of an Incoming or outgoing ves
sel. If the ship reached port safely.
tho Immense association known today
Imply as "Lloyds," numbering nearly
a thousand members and prepared to
Insure nnythlng on which there Is a
prospect of winning a reasonable
premium. The members do business
on their own account whenever they
please, the association merely stipu
lating that each shall deposit I25.000 as
a guarantee of financial responsibility.
Here are some of tho odd things on
which members of the great cambllnir
association havo taken a chance:
insured the life of Napoleon for one
month at a premium of 3 per cent.
Guaranteed the owners of Jumbo, the
big circus elephant, against loss in coin
