LAST OF OLD SCHOOL
DEATH OF SIR WILLIAM VERNON
HARCOURT ENDS CAREER OF
FORTY YEARS BEFORE THE PUBLIC
SUCCEEDED GLADSTONE IN 1894
AS LIBERAL LEADER IN THE
HOUSE OF COMMONS.
London, Oct. 3.Sir William Vernon
Harcourt, "the finest political gladi
ator of his age," died very suddenly
during the day at Naneham Park, near
Oxford, the country seat which he re
cently inherited from his nephew. Only
his wife, a daughter of the late John
Lothrop Mottley, the historian and
former American minister to Great
Britain, was with him When Sir Will
iam retired the previous night he
seemed fairly well, though he had been
suffering fiom a slight chill. In the
morning when he was called he re-
SIR WILLIAM VERNON HARCOURT.
plied cheerily: "In a short time"
Latei" a servant entered the room and
found Sir William lying dead on his
bed His son, Lewis Veinon Harcourt,
member ot parliament for the Rossen
dale division of Lancashire, was hastily
summoned from London.
Among ail classes in the United
Kingdom, regardless of party, the un
expected news caused a sensation and
genuine regret. The somewhat pathetic
announcement in March last of his in
tended retirement had prepared the
public for Sir William's eventual dis
appearance from the active arena of
political strife, but there had been no
whisper that his stalwart constitution
had been radically impaired by nearly
forty years of fierce pailiamentaiy
The evening edition of the Standard,
one of the deceased's most bitter op
ponents aptly and generously says.
Press Lauds Deceased Statesman.
"With the late Liberal leader there
has passed away one of the last of
those Titanic figures which bound us
with the most brilliant traditions of
the house of commons There are but
a few lett of those eminent statesmen
who received their political training
at the hands of Gladstone and Disraeli
The coincidence of his death with the
intended withdrawal of the distin
guished statesman into well earned
repose after a career of hard work and
political activity gives added pathos
to the event."
In a similar vein the Pall Mall Ga
zette, out and out Conservative in its
views, pays a tribute to one of the
"most striking figures of the political
arena," while the Liberal afternoon
newspapers deplore the loss sustained
by their party, for in or out of the
house of commons the deceased states
man would have always been a powei.
By the death of the "father of the front
opposition bench" the Liberals lose,
says the Star, "an intrepid, successful
financier, the constant champion of
progressive causes and the stalwart
leader of many forlorn hopes."
Sir William Vernon Harcourt be
came the Liberal leader in the house
of commons on Mr. Gladstone's retire
ment in 1894 and held that position
until February last, when he an
nounced his intention of retiring from
JOE JEFFERSON RETIRES.
Announces Decision Never to Appear
on Stage Again.
New York Oct. 3.Joseph Jefferson,
after more than seventy years on the
stage, during which time he has be
come one of the most honored and be
loved members of the dramatic profes
sion, has decided absolutely never to
resume his theatrical career. Deepest
regret was expressed by all who heard
him make the announcement.
Mr. Jefferson arrived here from Bos
ton, where he had rested a few days,
recuperating from his recent illness at
Buzzards Bay which caused the aban
donment of his fall tour. He is con
valescent, but still must be judicious
in guarding his returning strength, and
he will remain here three weeks, after
^hich he will go by easy stages to
Florida, stopping in Washington for a
time and again in Atlanta.
When the decision was ultimately
reached he quietly announced it to his
family "I shall never act again,' he
said. "My days upon the stage are
Once the decision was made and its
first feeling of solemnity had passed
Mr Jefferson became more cheerful.

No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
that which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path-
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely different.
One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic ia ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor-
