was red haired, with a wide face and
round blue eyes. Five feet eight Inches
in height, he had a short body and long
legs. His comrades called him "ie rou

rota or "bricktop." He was forty-six
years old -at Waterloo. So was Na

Key was a man who was trained to the

"These fellows after committing some

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES.
Care With Which England's Standards
Everg twenty years government offi
ciagcompare the current weights and
measures with the standards, which
are sealed up In the staircase of the
house of commons. There are only
two standards, the pound weight and
the yard measure. The standard pound
is of platinum, which despite its weight
!3 no larger than a cubic Inch, and,
small as it is, the metal of which it is
composed Is worth ?40. The standard
yard is a bar of bronze thirty-eight
inches loug, on which a yard has been
marked off in thirty-six divisions of an
inch. The greatest possible care is
taken of these two important articles.
When a comparison is being made
they are handled with tongs. The
pound weight is weighed in the most'
delicate of chemical balances, and the
yard Is measured with a micrometer.
When they are done with the pound it
is wrapped in a specia.1 soft paper and
laid in a silver gilt case, which is plac
ed in a bronze case, this being put In a
wooden box, afterward screwed down
and sealed. The yard measure Is plac
ed on eight rollers in a mahogany case.
which Is carefully sealeg. Both cases
are then put Into a leaden casket, which
is sealed by soldering. The packing Is
not yet finishied, however, for the lead
case is placed in ai strong oak box.
When this is screwed down It is placed
in the hole in the wall. The wall Is
built up by a mason, and the standards
can only be obtained by demolishing it
once more.-Londoni Globe.

Then, too, in the days of sailing

the sailors were largely occupied in
maneuvering the vessel. Fighting was

men who had nothing to do but fight
was of grea:t servire. The advent of
steam and of long range guns made the
Dd style of fighting impossible.
The story of the marine corps is a
stirring one. The tuarines distinguished
themselves first in 1775 in the battle
etween the Bolinhmme Richard and
the Serapis. They had previously, in
1776, taken part in the bloodless cap
ture of 100 cannon at New Providence,
in the Bahamas. They fought in Trip
