This was especially true of tho nlcayde '

The tnscluatlon of chess, however,
rivaled those of tho tournament with
the knights of Spain, and many an

CURIOUS OLD LAWS
WEItE THOSE OF COLONY AND
DOMINION OF VIRGINIA.
Order Given for Building of Jp.ll Seems
to Have Been Beginning of Law
and Order Rules for
During ono of his last lecture toura
through Old Virginia Mr. Hnrry Ellard
was in a small town called Klncastlo,
which Is tho county scat of Ilototourt
county, nnd thero gave a talk to tha
Confederate Veteran association of that
placo. He met a number of gentlemen
who wero connected with tho court
house nnd who allowed him access to
all of the records of the county.
On looking back nearly MO years ho
came across a curious order of the
court which ho copied and which Is as
"Bo it remembered that nt the houso
of Mr. Robert nreckenrldge, In tho
County of Botetourt, on Tuesday, tho
thirteenth day of February, In the
tenth year of tho reign of our Sover
eign King Georgo the Third, by the

ders that tho Surveyor of Botetourt
county do lay off two nnd one-hall
acres of land for tho uso of tho county

shall nppoint by court Christian nnd

to build n log cnbln twenty-four feel

small rooms, ono nt each end, for n
"Tho court dotli glvo leave to James

four feet long and sixteen feet wldo,
with nn addition nt tho end sixteen feet
wldo nnd twclvo feet Jong, for n prison
and tho Gnolor's House, tho expense of
which to bo paid by tho county."
Tills was tho nrst record Mr. Ellard
camo ncross, so It will ho seen that by
tho building of tho courthouse nnd Jail
law nnd order begnn to provall In this
section. Another curious order which
Mr. Kllnrd copied Is as follows:
"Order of tho Colonial Court regulat
ing tho chargo ot Innkeepers at Fin
castlo, Virginia, 14th day of February
1770, under King Georgo III. of Eng
land, Defender of tho Faith.
"Ordered that tho following ratC3 bo

Thoro was no explanation glvon as tc

In no other western European coun- l

Austria-Hungary. Quito recently the V
chamberlain's office changed tho num- H
her of box 13 In tho Imperial opera M
houso and tho Imperial Court theater M
to 12a, becauso the public objected to H
sitting In n box bearing this unlucky rr?
number. Nono of the rich subscribers Lr
who takes a box for tho year wanted
No. 13, and for single performances It L
wns Just as hard to dlsposo of. Il
