A SECRET LIBRARY.
Important Papers That Were Stored
Away by Queen Victoria.
Within the walls of Buckingham pal
ace and constructed on the "strong
room" principle is a room known as
the "secret library," and in this are
stored documents and private letters
tWhieh were they sent forth to the
[world would doubtless set the whole
From the very commencement of her
reign Queen Victoria assiduously
stored away in nice order all family
and other important papers, her only
assistant in this duty being a secre
tary, who entered her service withm
of her accession to the
throne and who retained his place un
til her majesty's death, though he him
self had no access to nine-tenths of
the papers which are docketed, the
late queen alone retaining the keys of
the safes and cabinets in which her
"secret library" was contained.
Just before her death her majesty
added to the list of her papers a batch
of letters of the most private and con
fidential kind, addressed by the late
prince consort to his brother, the Duke
Ernest of Coburg, and it is a well as
certained fact that when possible she
acquired every scrap written by her
late consort to his private friends It
is said by those who are qualified to
surmise that the "secret library" not
only tells of royal marriages, births
and deaths, but that it is virtually the
private history of Europe during the
last half of the nineteenth century.
The first pavements in Paris were
laid about the year 1200 in London,
about 1417. Berlin was. without pave
ments far into the seventeenth cen
tury. No houses had glass windows
before the twelfth century, and as late
as the fourteenth century anything
might be thrown out of the windows
of Paris and London after three times
calling out, "Look out!" Shirts were
not known until the time of the cru
saders, and the fine clothes which la
dies and gentlemen wore were seldom
Washed, but only occasionally "scent-
ed." So late as 1550 there were to be
found in Paris but three carriages,
while in England coaches date from
1580. Forks were unknown, and table
manners were exceedingly "unsightly."
The Smallest Pension.
Great Britain's pension system is as
liberal as may be considering the vast
number of persons carried on both the
military and the civil lists, but in one
case the record for smallness of pay
ment has undoubtedly been establish
ed Various factors enter into deter
mining the amount to be paid sailors,
and these factors so combined against
one old salt that it was found that he
could draw a pension of not any
more than fourpence8 centsa year.
Promptly on each quarter day there
comes an official communication trans
mitting the amount due in the form of
postage stamps, and he is granted
leave of absence in order that he may
convert this into money at the post
office. Then, after the proverbial man
ner of sailors, he promptly ^proceeds to
"blow" the entire amountNew York
Wordsworth's Sense of Smell.
Poets have not failed to do perfumes
justice, but one major poetWords
worthwent through life without a
sense of smell and was not sorry for
it. Nature, he told Aubrey de Vere,
seemed to him all the more a vision.
But once, and once only, did Words
worth smell, and the prosaic occasion
illustrates the unpolished household
ways of his time. He sat down with
his family to the midday dinner and
began to carve a leg of mutton. The
leg of mutton was stuffed with onions,
and for once, and once only, the sense
of smell was revealed to him. The
onions, suddenly laid bare, conquered.
