A Royal Gift.
An entertainer of kings was TVhitting-
ton. V hat sayeth the wise man?
"Seest thou a man diligent in his busi
ness? He shall stand before kings."
They used to show an old house in Hart
lane, r ch with carved wood, as Whitting-
ton's, liut It must have been in his parish
of St. Michael's, Paternoster row, and.
one is pretty certain, close to the site of
his col.ege, which stood on the north side
of the church. Here he entertained Henry
pf Agincourt and his bride with a magnifi
cence which astonished the king. The cost
of sucl a banquet was more than repaid by
the respect for the wealth and power of the
city which it nourished and maintained in
the kit gly mind.
The memory of it, we may be very sure,
had its after effect even upon those most
masterful of sovereigns Heury VIII and
Queen Bess. On this occasion it was noth
ing that the tables groaned with good
things and glittered with gold and silver
plate. It was nothing that the fires were
fed with cedar and perfumed wood. For
the pri icely mayor fed these fires after din
ner w th nothing less than the king's
bonds to the amount of 00,000. In pur
chasing; power that sum would now be
represented by a million and a quarter. A
truly royal gift. Walter Besant in Har
per's. Th Wlomer of tha Cobden Pris.
A peachy face, a sweet girlish expres
sion, a lass in her earliest twenties, and not
looking; out of her teens this is what her
portrait shows Miss Jeans to be. She is
the Ecglish girl who is first to win the
Cobden club prize of 60, offered in rota
tion at Oxford, Cambridge and the Vic
toria university. Her name is Victorine.
The subject set by the Cobden club was,
"The Industrial and Commercial Effects,
Actual and Prospective, of English Fac
tory Ast Legislation." This tremendous
Jittle etonomist is president of a factory
girls' club. She says modestly that she
learned as much from the girls as from
books. This is the true way for women,
too, to get hold of big questions on the
sympat hetic as well as on their stern side.
