Pinewood, S. C., Sept. 21, 1808~.
an Able and Versatile Statesman Who
Never Attained High Office.
Though Burke never attained high
offico his abilities were so versatile as to
gualify him for any post which a cabi
aet minister could fill. His practical
wisdom was as conspicuous as his power
of generalization. No one had a clearer
lomprehension or a firmer grasp of great
principles of universal application; at
the same time his policy in every de
partment of English politics rested on
a wide and solid basis of information
and experience. He was steeped in tho
history of the past, yet penetrated
through and through with the reality of
the present and ever and always mind
ful of that future in which the specula
tions and measures of the day were to
be tested and finally approved or con
demned. His prodigious activity in pu b
lie affairs sprang nor from an intellec
tual source alone, nor from his impirial
natriotism. It was constantly fed from
an inexhaustible store of moral en-:rgy.
He was animated by a detestation of all
forms of oppression, whether by kings
or governors, parliaments or peoples,
which was in him a consumming passion,
from which his noble nature could only
obtain relief by denunciation of the op
pressor and the destruction of his power.
I cannot help thinking that Burke
must have been stimulated, too, and
sustained by delight in his studies and
his work. it is impossible, without
counting this as an additional incentive,
to understand the amazing industry
which he devoted to the elucidation of
all the great questions dealt with in his
speeches and writings. How his method
reproves the habit, too common in our
day, as in other days, of debating sub
jects affecting the fate of millions of our
fellow creatures as if they could be dis
posed of by echoing the chatter of igno
rance, or prejudice, or vanity, or self in
terest! When we read Burke's speech on
Fox's East India bill, we say, "What a
great proconsul he would have made!"
When we read his speech on concilia
tion with America, we feel that the
greatest of colonial ministers was lost
in him, and when we read his speech on
economical reform we exclaim, "Here is
an ideal chancellor of the exchequer!"

SMOKED CANARY BIRDS.
Do Clouds From a Pipe Develop a Rich
Color In Their Plumage?
A little old shoemaker who has a
busy, old style cobbling shcp on the east
side is a bird fancier, and he has pe
culiar ideas about canaries. One night
he was sitting on his leather covered
bench, smoking an extremely odorous
quality of tobacco in a black pipe. A
customer was waiting for him to finish
straightening up a worn heel, and he
made several remarks concerning the
birds which hung about the cobbler's
shop. They were fancy birds, and he
could not help noticing it. Finally he
asked the shoemaker how he got such
richly colored birds.
'It'spart in the breeding and part in
the atmosphere," said the cobbler.
"You raise birds in a shop where two
or three men are constantly smoking,
and in time you will get the darkest
orange color if you use a little judg
ment in mating and they don't run to
"I should think that tobacco smoke
would be unwholesome for the birds,"
said the visitor.
"On the contrary, it makes them
hardy and seems to be good for them
every way. Women who have canaries
would do well to put them where they
can get a little tobacco smoke once in
awhile, although I don't think cigarette
smoke would do them much good. What
they need is strong tobacco smoke from
an old pipe like this or the smoke from
a black cigar. I've raised my best birds
when I had two jours working in this
little shop with me and all of us smok
ing pretty nearly all the time."
Then the old man sighed and said:
"That was before they half soled and
heeled shoes while you wait-before
machines were used for cobbling. No
two or three jours and an apprentice for
me now. I sit here alone, with my birds,
pegging away and keeping them well
smoked. "-New York Sun.
A SAVAGE CRITICISM.
The Teacher's Artistic Cleverness Re
celved a Hard and Cruel Blow.
In one of the Cleveland public school
rooms of the primary grade the teacher
has been reading Longfellow's "Hia
watha" to her pupils. Of course this is
a rather ambitious work for the little
ones, says The Plain Dealer, but they
enjoy it, and the rhythm seems particu
larly pleasing to them. When they come
to a hard word, the teacher goes to the
blackboard and draws a picture to illus
trate its meaning. This the pupils find
highly entertaining, and it helps in
quite a remarkable way to fix the text
in their minds.
A few days ago they came to this line
in the early part of the poem:
At the door on summer evenings sat the little
"At-th' door on sum-mer eve-nings
sat th' lit-tle"-read the children.
"Go on," said the teacher.
But they couldn't go on. The name
of Hiawatha was too much for them.
They knew who Hiawatha was, but
they didn't recognize his name. So the
teacher went to the board and took con
siderable pains in drawing:
First.-A wigwam with poles stick
ing up above it, and a rude aboriginal
drawing above it, and a rude aboriginal
painting on the side.
Second. -Little Hiawatha,with feath
ers in his hair, squatted at the wigwam
Third. -A fine harvest moon.
Then she pointed at Hiawatha and
asked what it was.
There was a general craning of necks
and shaking of heads.
'Come, come," said the teacher,
"you know what that is."
Then one little girl spoke up:
"I guess it's a mud turtle."
And instantly, with one accord, the
class glibly repeated:
"At th' door on sum-mer eve-nings
sat th' lit-tle mud-dy tur-tle."
And the teacher feels that her artistic
cleverness received a hard and cruel
Road and River.
The brave Pierro Stuppa, the Swiss
general, having been deputed by the 13
cantons to solicit the arrears of pay
which had been owing for a long time
to the Swiss officers in the French serv
ice, M. de Louvois, the war minister,
who was present, said to the king,
"Sire, those Swiss are very Importu
nate. If your majesty had all the money
that your royal predecessors have given
to that people, it would form a road
from Paris to Basel."
"That may be," observed Stuppa
with an air of firmness, "but at the
same time if your majesty had all the
blood that the Swiss have shed in the
service of France it would form a river
from Paris to Basel."
The king was so struck with the ob
servation that ho ordered M. de Louvois
to pay the whole of the money without

Obtained In Old Virginia.
Those who fancy that strict laws
were peculiar to New England in colo

ments of the Virginia assembly.
"It was enacted," writes Professor
.Tohn Fiske in "Old Virginia and Her
Neighbors," that any person found
drunk was for the first offense to be pri
vately reproved by the minister: the
second time this reproof was to be pub
licly administered; the third time the
offender must be put in irons for 12
hours and pay a fine; for any subsequent
offenses he must be severely punished at
the discretion of the governor and coun
" To guard the community against ex
cessive vanity in dress it was enacted
that for all public contributions every
unmarried man must be assessed in

but such social misdemeanors as flirting,

Pretty maids were known to encourage
hopes in more than one suitor, and gay
deceivers of the sterner sex would some
times seek to win the affections of two
or more women at the same time.

SPILT HER LUNCH.
Sorry Accident to a Stylish Young Wom
an In a Train.
The passengers on an early morning
train connecting with this city were
treated to a thoroughly enjoyable scene
the other morning. At one of the small
stations a young lady boarded the train.
She was dressed rather stylishly, but
a veil covered a rather plain face. She
switched down the aisle like a queen.
She barely deigned to glance at the
other passengers in the car, and when
she did her nose rose perceptibly at the
tip in a manner that spread the impres
sion of contempt.
She carried a Boston bag and the air
of a millionaire. There was but one seat
vacant. This was beside a good looking,
nicely dressed young man who was read
ing a paper.
When she came to this seat, she flop
ped down heavily and tossed her bag to
the seat between herself and the young
man. Two seconds later the young man
leaped from his seat, and a string of
earnest words of doubtful origin fell
from his lips like vipers from the lips of
the young woman in the fable.
The startled passengers looked to see
what had caused this outburst. They
saw, and then they laughed. The nice
looking Boston bag contained an ordi
nary, everyday working girl's lunch.
One of its features was a jar of coffee,
which had broken in the descent and
flowed freely over the young man's new
fall coat and trouters.
He went into the smoking car, swear
ing profusely. She murmured a weak
apology and spent her time in mopping
up the seat.-Brockton Enterprise.
THE EMPEROR WORSTED.
I Fluoky Little Hungarian Girl Got Be"'
venge For Sadowa.
The present kaiser would probably
not admit that he had often been
thwarted in any of his plans, but an
anecdote has recently become known
which shows that he at least once "got
the worst of it," and it is all the more
piquant from the fact that ho was de
eted by a girl.
When the kaiser, who was then
Prince Wilhelm, was about 10 years
old, he and Prince Heinrich spent some
time at Cassel with their tutors, who
sometimes allowed the little princes to
play with other children. One day when
several of them were gathered together
it chanced that a little French girl was
among the number, and the young Ger
mans conceived the brilliant idea of
making her a representative of the coun
try they all so cordially hated. The de
lightful plan was immediately put into
execution, and the poor child was tied
to a tree. Then began a fusillade of
pine cones, sticks, etc., and whenever
anything struck her there was a cry of
"Here's for Sedan!" This went on for
a few minutes, when a little Hungarian
girl, Helena von D--, who was watch
ing, could bear the injustice no longer,
and, singling out Prince Wilhelm as
chief off'ender, she threw herself on
him. The attack being unexpected, he
was completely taken by surprise and
fell down, whereupon she began to
pound him, crying out at each blow,
"Here's for Sadowa!"
The prince was fast getting the worst
of it, for his little adversary was thor
oughly in earnest, when the imperial
tutors, hearing the noise, rushed up and
separated the combatants. After that
the princes were more carefully watch
ed, and Wilhelm had no opportunity to
"get even" with the little champion of
justice. Some days afterward, bearing
that the princes were leaving, Helena
went down to the gate to see them go
by. As they passed Wilhelm spied his
foe, and leaning out behind his tutor he
stuck out his tongue.
Helena was the daughter of titled
parents, and later she was married to
an Englishman. When the kaiser was
in London, she told this story to one of
his gentlemen in waiting, who in turn
repeate-i it to his majesty. The latter
exlaimed: "Is that devil of a girl here
now? I would like to see her." A meet
ing was arranged, but Helena became
ill, and so they never met after that one
encounter to make friends or renew hos
tilities-New York Tribune.

THE CLEANLY ISLANDS.
A Region Where the Very Dust Is of a
Fortunate islands, the ancients called
them. What measure of good fortune
they associated with cleanliness is in
deed uncertain. From the duration and
elaboration of their baths one might
presume that the Romaus-not the holy,
but the pagan Romans-placed it at
least a degree above godliness. Yet
some influence surely must have trav
ersed tho law of heredity, for they
scarcely seem to have transmitted this
disposition to their posterity.
Whether, however, the title of For
tunate, given to these islands, had or
had not a reference to this quality,
which we place proverbially only next
to godliness, the quality itself is strik
ingly conspicuous. The islands had oth
er names. The Hesperides is the most
familiar of them, and in Tenerife the
original "dragon" tree may be seen be
neath which that sleepless dragon coiled
himself who acted as watchdog for the
maidens guarding the golden apples.
Today we call "golden apples" oranges
-in the language of the country, na
rangas. We have changed the name of
the islands, too, and call them the Ca
naries. No canary birds seem to live in
them, however, and there is a notion
that the name is derived ultimately
from "canis, " the dogs, especially those
of the island of Lanzerote, the most
easterly, being famous. The flora of
the islands are subtropical, with palms
(is not the chief town of the Grand
Canary Las Palmas?), bananas, eucalyp
tus, cactus and the aforesaid "golden
apples." Luxuriant vegetation is the
glory of Tenerife; a climate wonder
fully equable is common to them all,
but Grand Canary is especially blessed
in its dryness and freshness.
At Orotava are more grandeur of gar
dens and spacious hotels. At Las
Palmas, facing the northeast trade
winds, are the constant fresh breeze off
the sea, accommodation as comfortable
as could be desired and the quality of
cleanliness in its superlative degree.
Where all is so dry it is difficult to be
dirty and a positive triumph of innate
instincts over circumstances on the part
of the proletariat that so many of them
continue to be filthy. The Englishman
may even be astonished at the dirt,
as he will be astonished at his own
cleanliness. The astonishment is the
greater because the place is pervaded by
a fino dust, but the very dust is of a
clean'y, almost of a cleansing, nature.
It lies in powder on the banana groves
and palm trees. After a country drive
ft may make a dark coat look as if its
wearer's profession had to do with a
flour mill, but a shower of rain sweeps
it off the foliage, and a shake and a
brush of the garment, and they are all
more spotless than they were before.

The compliments paid by the poor are
often put in an amusing way. One old
woman who was very fond of the rector
said to Mr. Bernays: "You know, sir,
us likes the rector; 'is ears are so
clean." Surely an odd reason for pa
rochial affection. Another admirer once
declared with regard to the whole staff
of clergy, "You are all so plain" (a
word of high commendation), "but as
for the vicar, 'e's beautiful-" The great
est compliment, though at the same time
the most curious Mr. Bernays ever heard,
was paid by a workingman to a certain
bishop, famous for his simple kindli
ness, "What I likes 'bout the bishop is
