special feature of the occasion was the
appearance of a large boat as it came

Expert hands had built the hull and

Indigent Old Officers Who Live On
the Queen's Bounty.
While chronicling the movements of
the Queen reference Is now and again
made in the dally press to the Military
Knights of Windsor. Nevertheless, but
few who read about their doings know
of what that order consists. They are
officers who have distinguished them?
selves In some of our Innumerable little
wars, and yet In their old age lind
themselves solely dependent on a very
diminutive pension. From the Queen
they served so faithfully and we'd they
receive an annuity and a lodging in
that vast palace, Winds ir Castle. Tile
order is, indeed, a pendant to iii.it bet?
ter known home for the veterans of the
rank and tile. Chelsea Hospital. Its his?
tory is peculiarly interesting. When
that gallant warrior. King Edward ill.,
founded tho Order of the Gart, r, he or?
dained that each of the twenty-six
companions should be allowed t" pre?
sent an "alms-knight'' to the provision
made for them by the king. Accord?
ing to the original grant these veterans
w.re to be "such as through adverse
fortune were brought to that extremity
that they bail not of their own where?
with to sustain them nor to live so
genteelly as became a military condi?
tion." That they might live "genteel,
ly" they wele given a lump Slim of
forty shillings a year and twelve pence
each day they attended the royal chapel
?a small pension, it seems to us, but it
must be remembered that in iney lias
vastly decreased in purchasing power
since those early days.
Rut evil fortune awaited the alms
knights. They had been placed under
lhi> supervision of the canons of St.
George's chapel nnd these priests seem
to have bullied them unmercifully, tin?
der Edward IX. the quarrel had grown
to such a pitch that the King inter?
fered. Monks carried long tales to the
monarch of the insugordin.it Ion shown
by the stout old warriors to tho rules
that had been made for their govern?
ment. Tho alms-knights :?? plied, but In
cunning they were no match for their
ad versa r I os; "deeds not words" might
have been their motto. In the end they
were shut off from the royal bounty,
and. ns an old chronicle of the times
remarks, "how they next subsisted doth
not fully appear." Bluff King- Hal.

Mr. .Tamos A. Greer. of Athens, Ga.,
(Indorsed by the editor of tho Athens

statement: "For ten years 1 have been
a sulTerer from a cancer on my face,
which grew worse uv.tll tho discharge of

A TRAVELING POSTOFFICE.
The first real "traveling postoiflce" is
expected to start on Its rounds this
month in Maryland- It Is a stout cov
ered wagon, manned by a driver and
a postal clerk, which will leave the
town of Westminster every week day
morning, make a circuit of more than
thirty miles through the surrounding
country and return to Westminster at
There are eight village postofllees on
the wagon's route. The traveling post?
master will carry mall to them nnd
receive it from them. His wagon is
fitted with eases nnd pigeon-holes, so
Uiaj?lie can assort_mail whilf? bo_
travels: and he will deliver mail to all
residents along the road who will tako
the trouble to put up letter bo.\e3 or to
"wait for the wagon." ( He will be au?
thorized, moreover, to sell stamps, reg?
ister letters nnd issue money orders';
nnd a railroad towns being the termi?
nal of his circuit, tho conjunction of
the traveling postofflce and the railway
mail car w.ll bring the farmer and the
outside World very near together.
This traveling postofflce is. we need
hardly add, one of the experiments by
which the government is trying to solvo
an Itupera \ problem?that of rural
mail delivery. If the plan succeeds a
long step will have been taken toward
the adoption a '"form which every
oie approves, and which Is delayed

, practicable way to carry It out.
