"Ile was doin' too much talkin'. Very
windy. sir. IIi shut it off."
I was puzzled to make the fellow
out. At this bit of Information I fan
cied he might be a sergeant-at-arms or
something of the kind attached to the
residence of some one of the royalties.
employed to see that no inadmissible
person forced his way into the palace,
or if such succeeded in getting there
it was his duty to put him out. Hav
ing been brought up to consider ques
tions as to people's business Ill bred. I
refrained from asking him what his
office was. I let him go on talking, ex
pecting that in time he would state It
of his own accord.
"It must have taken a One lot o'
cordage to swing that block o' marble
into position, sir," said my companion.
"I don't think they used much cord
age for the purpose," I replied. "It
would only be needed to guide the
mass as It was swung on to its pedes
taL They doubtless used chains to
lift It."
"Now, really. Hi wouldn't 'a' thought
that. Hi should think ropes would be
better. Chains might break the marble,
sir. They couldn't 'ave swung it by
the neck, could they, sir?"
I looked at the man surprised. He
appeared to be sufficlently intelligent
to know that a statue would not be
lifted on to its pedestal by the neck.
"What made you think they would
do it in that way?" I asked.
"Well, sir, it seems to me the nat
ural way to lift a person."
"With rope? You would break a
living person's neck by lifting him
that way."
"But you wouldn't break a marble
person's neck."
"I think you would in this case. The
fgure is solid and must weigh a great
many tone"
"And It wouldn't do, sIr-not in this
case-to swing 'er most graclous majees
ty even in marble by the neck. 'Eaven
fbrbld that bany of 'er loyal subjects
should think o' such a thlngl Hilt's
rank treason. sir."
He seemed terribly shocked.
I was not espeelally edified by this
latter part of his chat, though before
he got on to it he talked sensibly
enough, so I thanked him for the in
formation be had given me and start
ed away, saying:
"I expect to go to court soon. Per
haps I shall have some attention from
you there in your oelal eapaeity."
"HI shall try to make it as easy as
possible for you, sir. If you do."
This added so largely to my ecurlos
ity that I was sorry I bad not asked
him the nature of the position he held.
He was not a gentleman and likely
would not have taken it amiss. How
ever, It was now too late.
Some time after this I was walking
en Oxford street witb my triend Har
grave, a Londoner, when I saw ap
proaching the man I had met at the
statue. It did not occur to me o ask
Hargrave who be was, for I had no
Idea he would know.
"Do you see this man comingY' ask
ed Hargrave,
"'Be's Caleraft. the hanlgma."
Then I understood the man's refer
snces to court-that he meant a legal
court Instead of a royal court .. I ap
preelated his horror as a loyal subject
of Queen Vlctoria st the idea of pot
tig a rope around his sovereilgn's
neck even I~ stone. But I was more
especlail a.letted at the remembrance
of his words when I told him I ex
pected to go to court.soon. "HI shall
try to make it uas easy as possilble for
y0o, ai'."
dlnce that memorable interview I
have never pasied Queen Victoria's
statue without thinking of Caleraft and
the court to which be be longed.

The Two Ways.
A hunter of the old school, who live'
among tle foothills of the Alleghenies
was teased into making a wager of $14
that his antiquated gun would shoot it
bullet through a railroad crosstle. The
old hunter was confident of winning
as he had tested his gun on crossties
hlckory. oak and even ironwood.
The bet was to be decided in the tum
ber yard back of the depot. The old
hunter arrived at that place in advance
of the others. lie arranged several o01
the thickest crossties for the test by
standing them against piles of lumber
with their fiat sides forward. Imagine
his astonishment. If you can, when the
man with whom be had made the bet,
upon arriving, exclaimed:
"Flatways: Are you daffy. mani
Turn them endways'"
The hunter of the old school lost.

Deadly Snakes.
The deadliest of snakes is said to be
the mamba. an African cobra. It flies
at everybody and everything: It goes
out of its way to quarrel; It will even
come down from a tree to solicit an In
terview. Over In India there is the
great king cobra, or hamadryad. a size
larger. quite as fierce (it has been
known to chase a man on horseback:
he had to ride for his life). but Its
poison is a degree less virulent. The
difference. however. may be considered
negligible and ceases to Interest the
patient after a few minutes. Among
the Australian cobras, the pit vipers of
America and the great West African
vipers there are species with evil repu
tations, and the most alarming tature
is that the aggressive Dmakes are all
desperately poisonous.
August and July.
"August." the name of the month. I
accented on the first syllable. 'Ao
gost." the adjective, Is accented on the
second syllable. This Is due, no doubtM
t the fact that, though both started
from the Latin "augalstas," they have
arrilved by different routes. The ad
jective is the Preach "atuguste" while
"Aungust" commemorating the Roman
emperor's title. Is the French "aout'
and the middle English "aungst" o
"aust." "July" used to rhyme with
"duly." even In Johnson's time. as ii
had done centuries earlier and as 11
does In southern Scotland to this day.
Goeethe's Mether.
The poet Goethe owed much of blh
greatness to his mother, a woman well
made to bear such a son, a perfeci
mother and. better still, his Intimate
friend and confidant Brought up in
strictly bourgeois and limited circles
with very little educatlon, sucb were
her natural intelligence and sympathy
that she afterward became the friend
of princes. poets and philosophers and
her bouse a rendeavous for the great
minds of her day.
