That famous politician. orator and
nan of fashion the fourth Earl of Ches
terfield was on one occasion at a grand
assembly in France. where Voltaire
was one of the guests. Suddenly the
French writer accosted his lordship
with the words:
"My lord, I know you are a judge.
Which are the more beautiful. the Eng

"Upon my word." replied Chesterfield.
with his usual presence of mind. "I am
no judge of paintings."
Some time afterward, says a biogra

Chesterfield. A lady in the company
prodigiously rouged directed her whole
discourse to Voltaire and engrossed his
conversation. Chesterfield came up,

A Costly Bed.
At Knole park, Sevenoaks. England,
in the king's bedroom is one of the
most extravagant bedsteads ever wade.
It was prepared by. Richard, third Earl
of Dorset, for the reception of James
I. It is twelve feet high by seven feet
six inches long. The curta-ins. val
ances, tester and lower valances are
composed of cloth of gold and, together
with the ceiling, are lined with brilliant
coral taffetas. now much faded, all
closely embroidered in a floral design
in gold. silver and colored silks. The
pillows and quilt are of the same em
broidered coral silk and trimmed with
many rows of most elaborate fringe
made of gold, silver, coral silk and
black tassels. A London Times writer
says that the cost of this astounding
extravagance amounted to ES,000,
which represents at least ?40,000 of
The Snow Leopard of India.
India has produced some of the finest
big game hunters in the world. First
they kill deer. then tigers, and after
that they climb into the hills after the
mountain sheep, which are the most
diclt of all their kind to fol~ow and
kill. But there is one ambition beyond
the mountain sheep. That is the snow
leopard. This beautiful creature, white
as the snows it lives among, is rarely
found below a height of 11,000 feet
and is even there extremely rare. It is
both wild and savage, and the natives
have a superstitious fear of its white
coat and deep green eyes. The man
who succeeds in killing a snow leopard
steps into the very first rank of big
A Lover of the Wind.
Tennyson had an extraordinary sym

a child of four years old he was blown

I hear a voice that's calling in the wind.
So, writes Arthur Waugh, the moth
er in "Rizpah" hears Willy's voice in
the wind, and so, again and again. in
his poetry does he endow the storm
with the invisible voice of nature. And~
it is so that he is best remembered -n

Old fashioned Turkish physicians
have plenty of remedies for cholera.
An agate in the pocket and a hyacinth
on the neck are much esteemed. but
the bone of a dead child carried in the
pocket is nearly as effcacious. Chol

Therefore a sufferer should drink de
cotions of laurel while Mars or Mecr
cury is in the ascendant, since these
planets are unfriendly to the moon.
