I fint -with Lord Tennyson a loiijj
evening till nearly midnight the day be
fore he took his oaths and his seat as a
jH'er. lie was occupied a good deal in
writing and bringing to jerfection a
poem of four lines, which he told me
had given him us miu li trouble as many
a tvubstantive wiii of some length. It
was interesting to hear of his tentative,
efforts and his rejection of them, till his
ear and his mind were jK-rfectly satisfied.
Next da j- I met him in the house of lords
and saw him write his name on the roll
The attendance in the house w:is ex
ceedingly scanty en that historic occa
sion. I do not think that a dozen ler
foiis were present. The poet was not in
the smallest degree elated. His trno
eminence towered supremely above the
adventitious honor, yet he could not but
feel the gratification which had arisen,
not from the fulfillment of a hind of am
bition which he h,td never f. It, but from
the sense of the secr.ro failie involved in
the recognition ! v l.:s country of the

the Argentine Republic, but it isn't the

miles in length. I have ridden on it, and
the trip isn't much worse than it used to
be to go to Lowell a few years ago on

miles. When the grade is steep, they are
changed at shorter intervals. ,."
"The distance is covered in alxnit eight

The superintendent of the line is a man
named Thraiikill, who was one of Qnan

finds in South America are relies of the

Ji. U;J.11L Strictly Pure
White Lead is best; properly applied
it will not scale, chip, chalk, or rub
off; it firmly adheres to the wood and
forms a permanent base for repainting;.
Paints which peel or scale have to be
removed by scraping or burning before
satisfactory repainting can be done.
When buying it is important to obtain
properly made. Time has proven that
white lead made by the " Old Dutch "
process of slow corrosion possesses
qualities that cannot be obtained by
any other method of manufacture. This
process consumes four to six months
time, and produces the brands that
have given White Lead its character
as the standard paint.
"Southern" "Red Seal"
" Collier " " ShipmaiT
are standard brands of strictly pure
Lead made by the " Old Dutch " pro
cess. You get the best in buying them.
You can produce any desired color by
tinting these brands of white lead with
