The Marching Song.
No one knows the inspiration of a
tramping song better than the soldier.

Ite airs. which they love to yell when
on march. The men of the Manches

for singing on the march. and two of
their favorite songs are "Killaloe" and
-'Brian Born." both of which give op
portunity for some hearty shouts at

LADY MARY'S DIET.
It Was Entirely Too Dainty to Suit Her
Italian Doctor. 4
That recipe of the tallest Scotsman
in London-two meals a day and live
forever-'would not have appealed to
the Englishman of the eighteenth cen- 4
tury nor yet to the man who lived 4
abroad. Here, for instance, are a few
trifles which Lady Mary Montagu man
aged to exist on in Italy:
"I wake about 7 and drink half a pint 4
gf warm asses' milk," she wrote, "after
which I sleep two hours. Then come
three large cups of milk coffee and two 4
hours after a large cup of milk choco- 4
late. Two hours later my dinner,
where I never fail to swallow a good
dish (I don't mean plate) of gravy soup,
with all the bread, roots, etc., belong- 4
ing to it I then eat the wing and the A
whole body of a large fat capon and a
veal sweetbread, concluding with a
competent quantity of custard and 4
some roasted chestnuts."
Even then the day was not done.
Lady Mary goes on: "At 5 In the after
noon I take another dose of asses' milk 4
and for supper twelve chestnuts, one 4
new laid egg and a handsome porrin
ger of white milk." In these-degener
ate days it would be thought that the
patient. had done very well.
The eighteenth century Italian was
not so easily satisfied. The parish doc
tor marveled how Lady Mary managed.

THE COUNTRY LAWYER.
A Legal View of Him as the Slave of 4
His Clients. 4
"A professional baseball player in
part bases his claim for a large com
pensation upon the theory that in ac
cepting service he surrenders in a great !
measure his liberty and becomes the
property of his employer," writes Al
mond G. Shepard in "Case and Com
"If this was the basis of compensa
tion for the -lawyer. in the rural dis
tricts he would speedily become a mil
lionaire. For he is the property not
only of one individual, but frequently
of a whole community, and the greater
his success, the wider his -reputation,
the more abject is his slavery. His
clients are tyrannical. They know and
recognize no office hours. The month.
hand on a farm has at least a few
hours between late dusk and early
dawn -for repose, but even these are
frequently denied the country lawyer.
"Some of his clients are.prone to con
sulf him at his residence late at night,
when none of the curious minded vil
lagers can see them, and speculate and
gossip on the question and of the na
ture and purpose of the call. Another
class, believing in the adage that the
early bird catches the worm, at early
sunrise interrupts his slumbers to make
sure that they retained the 'best' law
yer in the county to represent them in
some ptesent or expected trouble."
Gallant Unto Death.
When Sir Ralph Abercromby was
mortally wounded in the battle of
Aboukir he was carried on a litter on
board the Foudroyant. To ease his pain
a soldier's blanket was placed under
his head. He asked what it was.
"It is only a soldier's. blanket," he
"Whose blanket is It?" he persisted,
lifting himself up.
"Only one of the men's."
"I want to know the name of the
man whose blanket this is," the dying
"It is Duncan Roy's of the Forty-sec
ond, Sir Ralph," said his attendant at
"Then see that Duncan Roy gets his
blanket this very night," commanded
the brave man, who did not forget *
even In his last agonies' the comfort a
and -welfare of his men. Of such un
selfish stuff are true soldiers made.
Black opals seem -almost misno-a
mers, for while some of the stones are
actually black and all of them have a
dark body or underground they are a
really wonderful, flashing, changinga
masses of color. All the colors of the
solar spectrum vibrate through them.,
some in small pinpoint markings, oth
era in harlequin, peacock and formal
designs. Some of them show broad
flashes of red, blue, green or purple,
which change rapidly from one to an-a
other on the slightest change of angle
or light. Others exhibit cloud effectsa
and sunsets such as Turner painted
and.only Ruskin could describe,.

An Omittd Story.
The reminiscences of the late Mel

respondent, do not contain, for obvious
reasons, perhaps the best story told of
that Irrepressible little man. At a din

Sir Evelyn Wood,.'who was seated next
to the guest of the evening,, commenced
his speech thusly: "C'ur honored guest,
Mr. Prior, has been in twenty-one e'
