did; and tben they bad their revenge. It wa
Lady Kitty Candour who set it going. 1
mean tbat it waa Lady Kitty who first start
ed the rumor of Lord Fanfare's wickednen.
"You'va only got to look at him, people

had miserably failed.

the art Wee Hilda, "or bow could be have th

"He has a wonderful complexion," replied
her mother, "but be needn't have bragged of
it to all I lie world."
Now, the fa't was that Lord Fanfare kept
bis connect iou with the Methuselah pill very
dark indeed; but he had a wonderful com
plexion, and being foud of a Joke and liking
to do a stroke of business at the same time,
be bad allowed the omuibtiMW to literally
brittle with his portrait, beneath which waa
the following ridiculous advertisement:
"I am today, and yet, thanks to the Me
thuselah pill, my complexion is that of a boy
of 17. Fanfare."
You can't doubt the word of a peer of the
realm, you know, and the sale of the Methu
elab pill was vastly IncresMed.
The fact Is that Lord Fanfare wore cbiu
