Lady Agnes was ono of two sisters,

being Scotch dlgiiltlos, they win de?
scend to Miss Scott, as there Is no'
such thing aj aUeyance in the peerage,
While there are no less than nlnetocn i
women in England who ure peeresses
In their own rignt, there Is only one |

peeresses in their own right, with the
exception of tho young Luchess of

Tho Earldom of Ly.sirt and the
Barony of Huntlngtower were first
created by King diaries I., in lfii;;, in
favor of William Murray, who had
' formerly held tim ofllce of "whipping

I could not receive. Charles, d< spue
his undeserved reputation lor iugratl
i tude, never forgot nil toe thrashings
that Will .Murray endured for his sake,
j and when ho bestowed these peerages]
upon him, granted them with remainder
to his heirs, female as well as male. !
As the "whipping boy" had no sons, I
he wiui succeeded by his eldest daugh?

The late Karl of Dysart was an ox
traordlnary ch. praeter. Having quar?

a small house near tho Strand, from
which ho never emerged during tho re?
maining fifty years of hU lite, allow?

doctor to havo access lo his rooms,

In tho door, ills only sou, Lord Hunt?
lngtower, predeceased him by som- alx
years, being killed In the hunting field,
und leaving ..... charming Irish wife,
his son, and his two daughters. In
the utmost poverty. Not a farthing In
tho way of assistance could sho get
from her rcoluso old father-in-law. one
of tho most celebrated misers of tho
Victorian era, whose only amusement
was to gloat over tho tltlo deeds and
lends amid which he finally died. Hew
poor Lady Huntlngtower and her child?
ren managed to' exist during the years
that Intervened between her husband's
death and the decease of her seml-tn
sarie Old fathcr-ln-law. no one but her?
self and tho late William F.. Gladstone
and his wlfo could tell, CJludstono had
been one of the most Intimate friends
of Huntlngtower, who had appointed
him guardian of his children; a trust
which tho statesman fultllled In tho
most generous manner.
On the old earl's death Lady Hunt?
lngtower was not allowed to derive any
revenue from his estate until after
the settlement Of the lengthy lawsuit
Instituted on his decease by an In?
dividual who claimed to bo tho present
earl's half-brother, the Issue of an
earlier marriage of the deceased Lord
Huntlngtower. The claimant was sup?
ported in his allegations by his mother,
who declared that she- had been passed
off at several hotels In Scotland
as Huntlngtower's wife. Fortunately,
When the ?ttStf came before the House
?>f Lords, the fact was discovered that
this woman had had a husband living at
tho time when she was said to havo
been traveling In Scotland with Lord
Huntlngtower. and the case was ac?
cordingly thrown out of court.
Tho present Earl of Dysart Is al?
most as eccentric as his grandfather:
so much so that his wife has boon
obliged to lenv-< him; and whereas she
makes her home at is Queensgate Ter?
race, In London, and has a country
place of her own at St. NeetS, In Hunt?
ingdonshire, he makes his hearquarters
at Ham House. .She Is n clever woman,

Washington, August 16.?The con?
gressional friends of Captain John
Lamb, who ycstorday was defeated for .
re-election to the House from the
rrhtrd Virginia District, to-day ex?
pressed considerable regret at the an
nouncement that he would not serve
longer than March 4. 1913, tho end ot
his present term. At the santo time,
there was much quiet discussion ot
Governor Montague's entry into Con?
or "Governor Montague's entry Inta
Congress. It is recognized. tha*.
v.-hllo tho Third District woll lose fhi
services of a man who has an ex?
cellent record as soldier and cltfzen.
and a matt who has done conscientious
work since coming to Congress, Gover?
nor Montague, being an able lawyer"
and a much younger man than Cap?
tain Lamb, ^111 be able to represent'
tho district to the very best advant?
While members of tho Virginia dele
gntlon to-day did not care to discuss
tho result of the election, there was
much talk of a private kind.
Another matter being considered, 13
who will become chairman o? tho
House Committee on Agriculture,
vrhich position Is now held by Captain
Lamb. The next man on tho comm.',
tee Is Representative Lover.? of South
Carolina, and It is quite likely that',
, the chairmanship will go to him. as
there is little likelihood that for any]'
reason he would be passed over in the
re-organization for some one further
down tho list. ,
Mr. I.ever Is one of tho best known
men in tho House. He Is a tsorough'
farmer, n hard worker, and friend Of I
known fidelity to the agricultural In?
terests of the country. As chairman
