Lcri Whitworth, who held Torioni
flirts of honcr in English diplomatic
circles, was a kindly, gracious gentle
iran as well as a wit and a man of the
wcrld. He had indeed almost measurec
swords witb Napoleon at the Tnileriei
when that despot railed at England foi
not having evacuated Egypt and Malta,
accused her cf having violated treatie
and ended by flourishing a cane danger

Lord Whitworth put his band on the
hilt rf his sword.
"What would you have done if the
?mperor had struck you?" he was after
"I would have felled him to the
ground," was the quiet answer.
Perhaps the best story told of him it
one showing how bis quick wit disposed
cf a rival. When he was at the Russian
court. Fox sent there as a sort of em
bassador cf his own a man named Adair,
the son of a surgeon.
One day the empress, speaking in
French, said to Lord Whitworth:
"Is he a very important man, this
"Not so very, madaine, " replied Lord
Whitworth, "although his father was a
grand saignenr," a remark which read
ers of French will recognize ns a very
good pun fr twe word as used by Lord
Whitwcrth means "blood letter," while
by its sound it also meant a great lord.

Vmtu and Monkey.
All animals, even the wildest, can be
subjected in seme way to the dominion
of man and be domesticated to some ex
tent. Here, for instance, are two very
curious facts abont cats. Many persons,
includiiiK some of our greatest natural
ists, believe that our English domestic
cat is descended from the Egyptian do
mi'stic cat. Yet all records go to prove
that the cats of Egypt lived in droves,
were caied for iu droves, were fed in
droves nnd worshiped in droves, with
the result that Egyptian cats never got
domesticated cr became half as intelli
gent as ours.
The like truth is suggested from In
dia, where monkey are worshiped.
These arc allowed to become nuisances.
They are led and they bavo any amount
of liberty, and what is the consequence?
They never lose tbeir innate savagery.
The" method of caring for them has been
wrong. Alk, the deTotiou and care ex
pt tided on them are practically wasted,
and if we treated our cats in the same
fashion as the Iudians do these monkeys
they would become just as wild and uu
