The prayer lie Addressed to the
Throne of Mercy. I
The following eXample of a quaint
and selfish prayer does nou come from
the liturgy; it is from "GlT mpes of
Ancient Liackntey:" "0 Lord, thou
knowest tlit I have nine estate., in the
city of London and likewise that I
have lately purchased an estate in fee
simple in the county of 1Essex. I be
seech thee to preserve the two coun
ties of Middlesex and U4ssex from fire
and earthquake, and, as I have a
mortgage in Hertfordshire, I beg of
thee likewise to have an eye of com
passion on that county, and for the
rest of the counties thou mayest deal
,with them as thou art pleased. 0
Lord, enable the bank to answer all
their bills and make all my debtors
good men. Give prosperous voyage
and return to the Mermaid sloop, be
cause I have insured it, and, as thou I
hast said the days of the wicked are
but short, I trust in thee that thou
wilt not forget thy promise, as I have
purchased an estate in reversion which
will be mine on the death of that
profligate young man, Sir J. L. Keep
my friends from sinking and preserve
me from thieves and housebreakers
and make all my servants so honest
and faithful that they may attend to
my interest and never cheat me out
of my property night or day."

A Curious Legend.
There is a curious legend in-regard tc
Decadman's plaice, Soathwark, London.
An ingenious old writer says that the
name originated as follows: "In Dead
mani's place, at St. Maryov'eruts, a man
servant being buried at seven of the
clocke In the morning, and the grave
standing op'en for more dead Commodi..
ties, at foure of the clocke in the same
evening he was got up alive againe by
a strange miracle, which, to be true
and certaine, hundreds of people can
testifle that sawe him acto like a coun
try Ghoste in his white p~eackled
eheete." However, a more exact lis
torian explained that the name was
merely * corruption of Desmond's
place.

THE ECOF H~diON.
Dueling as It Was In France In the
Time of Richelieu.
The passion for dueling, which had
cos;t France, it was said, between
7,G00 and 8,000 lives during the twcnty
years of Henry IV.'s reign, was at its
height when hi son Came to the
throne. The council of Trent in 1545
had solemnly condemned the. practice
of singlo combat, impartially inlutd
ing principals, seconds and spectators
in its penalty of excommunication., *n
1002 an edict of Henry pronoyinced tho
"damnable custom of dueling intro
duced by the corruption of the con
tury" to be the cause of so many pite
ous accidents, to the extreme reorot
and displeasure of the king and to the
Irreparable damage of the state, "thai
we should count ourselves unworthy
to hold the scepter if we delayed t<
repress the enormity of this crime."
A whole series of edicts followed t
the same effect, but it was easier ti
make edicts than to enforce themn
Degradation, imprisonment, confilca
tiou of property, loss of civil rights
and death were the penalties attachc
to the infringement of the laws agalns
dueling, and still the practice pro
valled. In 1620 Richelieu published
milder form of prohibition. The firs
offense was no longer capital, a thir
only of the offender's property was t
be confiscated, and the judges wer
permitted to recognizo extenuating cl
cumstances.
A few months later the Comte d
Bouteville thought fit to test the mU
ister's patlence in this direction. Th
Place Itoyale had long been a favorit
duelhin(li grouind, and De Boutevill
traveled froim Brussels to fight hil
twenty-second (iel here, in the hear
of Paris, in deliberato (efIance of th
king's authority. The result was nc
encouraging. Montinoroency though h
I was, the count went with his secon
to the scaffold, and the marked dc
creaso from that time in the numbe
i of duels may be attributed either t
the moderation used in framing tb
law or to the inexorable resoluto
with which it wits enforced.-Mcmul

Dr. lIolmn*a Itovenge.
When "The Last Leaf" was Dublist~
ed by Oliver Wendell Holmnes a criti
attacked it savagely and cruelly. Di
Holmes, though Importuned by friendi
did nothing in revenge, lie waited to
timo to avenge him, which time dii
liberally. The critic fell upon ovi
danym and ended his existence with sul
cide. The only morceau of persona
revenge which the good doctor aliowe
himself was to cut out the paragrap]
about his enecmy's career and post
it hin hie scrapbook on the samo pag
which contained the original criticisa
and the announcements of the succes
sire editions of the poem. This was i
mild revenge, but even this was un

Bladder troubles most always result from
a dorangoment of the kidneys and a cure is
obtained quickest by a proper treatment of
the kidneys. If you are feeling badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and
bladder remedy.
It corrects Inability to hold urine and scald

unpleasant necessity of being compelled to
go often during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. 'le mild and the
