THE ROYAL CHAIR.
The chair in which all the English
sovereigns for the past 500
years have sat to be crowned is a
rough wooden affair, with a Gothic
back. It stands on the backs of four
wooden lions and has underneath
the seat the famous "Stone of
Scone," on which the Scottish sovereigns,
down to the time when
there was none, knelt to be crowned.
The stone is said to be the same
which Jacob used for a pillow when
he had his well known ladder
dream, but this part of the story
need not necessarily be believed.
The throne in the House of Lords
is modeled after the famous old
chair, which latter is kept just behind

David. Mr. Dayton did a tremendous
amount of good work as a
member and officer of many fraternal
organizations in which he was
a pioneer. This was done without
ostentation and with an extreme deliberation
that occasioned good-natured

heart and bounteous good will that
gave him a special place in the affections
of the younger generation,
who were pleased to honor a member

rather too much dispensing.
It must be granted that if they came
from a cold region they kept us all
in hot water, pretty well and often.

many ways how often totally blind
and uninformed they really are. It
is sometimes truly pitiful, their
obtuse, dense mentality and lack of
