It Richard be tried by tho only proper
standard, that of his own time, ho will
bo found to bo not tuoro but less cruel
und blcodyvhnu either his predecessors
or thoso who came titter him. The net
which has especially blackened hi*
memory is the mysterious removal or
murder of tho princes. Yet Clifford,
backed by Margaret of Aujou, had kill?
ed in cold blood Richard's brother, tho
Karl of Ruthlaud, n boy of 10, while
Henry VII imprisoned nnd executed tho
feeble minded Karl of Warwick, the son
i ?s- Clarence. In mere numbers of exe?
cutions, excluding, of course, on both
sides those who were taken in open re?
bellion, Richard has much less to an?
swer for than Queen Margaret or Henry
VII and far less than Henry VIII, who
put to death anybody who happened lo
bo distasteful to him en political, per?
sonal or religious grounds. There was
no public opinion in that day ngniusl
putting to cleat It any one who bad played
and lost in the great struggle of politics.
Executions were a recognized part of
the business. When too gome went
against a statesman in those days, as
Mr. Speaker Reed once said, ho did not
cross the aisle and take his place as the
lender of his majesty's opposition: la
was sent to the towi r and had his 1* ad
cut off. Autres temps, untres mantis.
At every turn of tho wheel in the long
struggle between tho Lancastrians ami
tho Yorkists the victorious party al?
ways executed every leader of the <>th< r
side upon whom they could lay hands.
Such were tho rules of the society and
such the politics in which Richnrd was
brought up, and he played according ;?>
those ruh s und without excess, pitying
the final forfeit himself with undaunted
Nothing is farther from the truth
than the notion that Richard was un?
popular with tlu- musses of the people.

The Gigant ie Touch Mr Not? of tl??> Tropic*
Have Explosive Fruits.
Everybody is familiar with the
"touch me nc,% " tho pretty jewel weed
that grows along the side of watt r
courses. When its seed pods are ript . at
the slightest touch they will explode,
blowing the seeds in your face. Tho
giant union,? them is tho sandbox tree
(Hnm crepitans), a native of tropical
America Its furrowed fruits are as
large as an orange. Cosmos of Paris
thus describes this Krupp gun id' the
"It is often cultivated as nu orna?
mental tree, both in its native country
and in other parts of the globe, notably
in certain gardens in tho Indies. Its
fruit looks i,n tho ontside something like
a melon; it is formed exactly liko that
of our native euphorbias, of sections,
which at maturity separate violently
with so intense a report that it has bei n
compared t<> the sound of a pistol,
throwing its seed to a considerable dis?
"With the fruit a very pretty sand- j
box can be made by cutting a circular ;
opening in the upper part, extracting
the seeds nud then covering tho open?
ing. The opposite side is perforated I
with little holes. A sandbox thus made
is very difficult to keep, for tho time al?
ways comes when, aided by the drying !
process, tin-sections suddenly .-plit, with 1
a characteristic sound.
"Tho violent splitting <>f the fruit of
the sablicr is explained very simply by
a process analogous to that which causes
tho two halves of u split stick to curl
apart and depends upon tho unequal
extensibility of tho elements of the
valves, w hich produces tho mechanical
effect due to it at the precise moment

Landing a lliilldog.
A Chicago man who had been trolling
for muskelluuge was returning across
the Heids to tho farmhouse where he
was stopping, when he met with a re?
markable adventure. He thus relates it
in tin- Chicago Times-Herald: "I hadn't
gone fur when I heard a savage growl
behind me, and the next minute I was
clambering into the branches of a con?
venient tree, with a big bulldog snap?
ping at my heels. As I swung myself up
out of reach I struck frantically at the
brute with my trolling spoon. One of
tin- heavy hooks caught him fairly in
the nose, and in ii moment ho began
pawing and thrashing about in a wild
endeavor to get loose. It took an hour
to land him. lie would run out a couple
of hundred feet, dive into the deep clover
nnd sulk and growl. Then I would haul
him in, hand over hand, with a hitch
around a convenient limb. Whenever I
slackened (ho line, away he would go
again until I brought him up with a
sharp turn. It was great sport. Talk
about fishing! Landing a 20 pound
inuskcllnuge is tame and uninteresting
! when compared with landing a 30 pound
bulldog. At tin- end (if an hour ho luv
down at the ford of the tree, and I
couldn't induce him to light. I tied the
line, tightly about a limb, jumped down
out of his reach and ran for the nearest
fence. Hut there was no necessity for
hurry?the dog staid. 1 told a farmer's
j hoy I inet shortly afterward where he
could lind his dog. 1 guess he deserved
to keep my trolling outfit l or recovering
?? is a strange fact that tin- right
baud, which is more si usible to the
touch than the left, is less sensible than
I the hitler to the effect of In at ? t cold.
The antiquity of legal methods ifl
curiously illustrated by tho recent dis
vovery id' the oldest will extant. This
unique document was unearthed by
Professor Pqtrio at Knhuni, Egypt, and
is at h a t 4,000 years old. In its phra?

^Chicago, March 10.?The wheat market
in day was in the condition it is usually
in wl.cn the crop report is forthcoming.
Towards the c lose, however, there was a
slump, promised liberal receipts In the
Northwest and some good crop reports
from Kansas exert inn a discouraging
effect on weak holders and prompting
them to liquidate. May wheat opened at

under yesterday. Cash wheat, was irreg?
ular, closing 1 2u3-4 tents under yestei
A slight appreciation in corn prices
late yesterday was attributable to the war
scare which arrived about the (dose, and
that having heen 'idled over night, the
market this morning opened with che ad?
vance lost. There was a fair demand at
the decline,traders having some short corn
to cover, a lirmor tone developing in con?
The break In wtieat near'the close had
a detrimental effect on torn. May corn
opened at 24 1 2a24 5 8, sold between
24 5 8n248-4 and 24 I 8, closing at 24 I-8a
24 1-4; 1-2c under yesterday. Cash corn
was linn early, closing easy with the fu?
Oats?The trade in oats early was so
light that prices were but slightly til?
lered, although the temper and feeling of
the market was easy. Later, as other
grades displayed a hardening tendency
oats sympathized. Near the (dose reces?
sions took place, wheat and corn exhibit?
ing weakness, May oats closed :>-Sc lower
than yesterday. Cash oats were 1 4c
higher, early, but Colsod with the advance
Provisions?A firmer but not a more ac?
tive market was seen. There was fair
buying by packers and for scattered ac?
counts. The slump'in grain at the end of
