happening there tn the past months

inobtt of a pilgrimage few visitors to
Brussels ever missed. It was tho sta
tion nearest to the Field of Waterloo,
nays William Bateman in the London
'From Braine-l'Alleud the pilgrim
.would wander by ono way or another
to the shrine of his pilgrimage, "Le
Lion de Waterloo," the great Belgian
Lion cast in metal taken from the
guns captured in tho great battle,
standing at the apex of a pyramid of
earth some two hundred feet high
thai dominates the whole of the flat
landscape for miles around. Tho Lion
Mound stands as a monument to the
memory of all the brave men who fell
OB that June day. Beneath the great
bank of earth, BO they tell you, rest
the ? bones of thousands of soldiers
of varied nationality. Fn?m the sum
mit of the mound practically the
whola area of Waterloo's battlefield
may be soon.
' Probably there ls not in the world
* more striking memorial than this
hill of memory rising from the rolling
plain that stretches all around. Yot.

features ot tho battlefield was do

from which the pedestal of the Lion
rises. That pedestal bears the simple
inscription-"June 18, 1815." The
"Lion itself, so your guide would tell
weighed twenty-eight tons'.

the'flat field ot Waterloo, waving with
corn In the summer, deep in mud in
the.winter, across which two cobbled
mal? roads run away to the south
fn the direction of Quatre Bros, from
which Wellington fell back only a few
days before tho great battle.
a?, whole battlefield can bo cov
ered on foot in ? few hours. But for
tts history, it is a most unprepossess
ing spot. Ditches and muddy roads
intersect the fields from which, even
today, the plough will turn up rusty

that he Is on unusual ground. The

^elio-Ailiance, however, has much
aim io history. It was 'Napoleon's
radguaitcrs et the beginning of the
[jg f^^^?^^
battle, and by Its name the Germana
utlll know thc battle of Waterloo.
CIOHO at hand fa undoubtedly the
most beautiful monument or the whole
field-and one of the moat recent. It
shown a wounded Imperial Eagle dy
ing in defense of a broken standard,
lt bears the simple legend "Aux
Derniers Combatants 'de la Grande
Armee, 18 Juin 1815." To the Isat of
those who fought in the Grande
Armee of Napoleon, to the gallant vet
erans of those wonderful soldiers the
Little Corporal led through Europe,
Frenchmen erected this striking mon
ument only a fow years since.
From Helle-Alliance the pilgrim's
road led generally to the right elong
tho narrow lane that runs through the
very center of tho battlefield to per
haps thc most historic' of all its re
mains, the Chateau de Hougomodt.
Thc Btory of this chateau ls one 'hat
can never dio. '
Hougomont was one of the advanced
posts of the British Unos and the key
of the nrltish position. It it had fal
len, tho history of Europe would bavo
been differently written.
At the time of the battle, Hougo
mont was an old, partly-ruined cha
teau, surrounded by numerous out
buildings. Hy the Great Duke's own
orders the place was hurriedly turned
into a fort. Hero, throughout practi
cally the whole day, tho Coldstream
ers, who fought the bulk of the do
fending force, held back the most
violent attacks of the action.
With the circuit from the Mound
to Helle-Alliance, and back to Hougo
mont, the tourist generally contented
himself; but In Waterloo itself, and
in Mont Ht. Jean, tbore are scores of
memorials of the famous day.
Waterloo was the Duke of Welling
ton's headquarters from June 17th to
the 19th. Thc church contains a bust of
bim, by Geofs, and numerous memorial
slabs and tablets to the memory)
of those wbo fell In the battle.
And in the midst of the sublime,
there ls. only a few paces away from
the church, the ridiculous. In a cot
tsge garden stands a monument to
the leg of Lord Uxbridge, who com
manded the cavalry in the battle. The
leg was amputated immediately after
the victory, and lies buried here with
an epitaph and a weoping widow
above it
Saluting the Quarter-Deck?
Every time an officer or a seaman
goes upon the quarter-deck he salutes
lt. He never by any chance forgets
this, one of the regular customs on
board, says Pearson's Weekly. The.
quarter-deck ls that part of the deck
reserved by officers, and many people
think that the treason why lt is sa
luted ls out of respect for those of
ficers. The why abd wherefore of the
saluting hss a far more 'interesting
origin than that, however, abd one has
to go back hundreds bf years to find
the beginning of the custom. In the
old dsys a crucifia used to stand on
the quarter-deck. In those days all
the sailors wera Cniaellcs, and, of
course, every time they-'approached
the crucifix they crossed themselves
to show their reverence for the holy
nymboi. It is many a long year ago
sinco.lho cru- iflx wea therrv buj tho
custom of saiuting the quarter-deck,
which wss a result of it, has becta
handed down in the navy e*er since.
Investigate, Anyway.
"Mr. Speaker," quoth the member of
the house. "I would like to ask If there,
are any committees investigating any
thing?" "There are nous," replied
speaker. It was a moment of intense
though suppressed excitement "I
move." exclaimed the member with
deep feeling, "the appointment of a
committee to investigate why nothing
is being investigated. If the condi
tions are become such that there ls
nothing to Investigate, they should be
me} with appropriate legislation."

New York, June ?A.-To the list of
.wenty-two slates in which workmen's
compensation laws were already in
effect, eight mere states and the ter
ritory of Alaska have this year been
added by the action of their legisla
tures during sessions willoh have just
eome to a close. This growth of thc
movement toward safeguarding the
welfare of the laborer and his depen
lents Is revealed in the summary of
this year's legislativ?' activities, which
has been compiled by the Associated
Press. The summary also shows pro
gress In thc abolishment of child la
bor and in the direction of limiting
the working hours of minors.
Tlx. additional States to adopt work
men's compensation are Wyomning,
Montana, Oklahoma, dorado, Maine,
indiana, Vermont and Pennsylvania.
Favorable action toward the enaction
of such a measure was also taken by
thc legislature of I'tah. which created
a commission to Investigate the ijues
'lon and report a bili for the consid
eration of thc next legislature. In
one state which considered tim matter,
New Mexico, a proposed workmen's
compensation law passed thc house
but was defeated in tho senate. In
Idaho, thc bill was vetoed by the gov
ernor. Several other states revised
their former laws in orde rto insure
more efficient operation.
Somwhat dlffrnt standards as to the
way in which compensation should
be awarded and the law ad minister
id are shown in the measures enact
ed this year, but this lack of uniformi
ty ?B also a feature Af various laws
orcviously passetd in other states/
For instance, under the new Colorado
Uatute injured workmen will receive
".0 per cent o their wages during In
capacity, though not to exceed $8 a
week. In case of total permanent
Msability. the compensation is pay
able through life. When death re
mits from the accident, tho worker's
Tamlly 1B to re?oive a similar amount
for six years with a maximum of $2,
iOO. In case of loss of eyes, hands,
limbs or other members, similar pay
ments arc to hc made for a specified
period, varying from a few weeks to
'our years, dependent upon the na
ture of thc injury.
Employers are required to insure
payment cither in a state insurance
fund to bc created or a mutual or
stock I nan rance company. Adminis
tration ls placed Tn the hands of an
Industrial commission of three mem
bers who shall adjust disputes ana
with authority to make awards if em
ployers or Insurance companies neg
itect. to make payments promptly.
iCour*. proceedings are thereby prac
tically eliminated.
The Maine law, however, awards
her Injured workmen payment by the
employer of not more than $10 a week
tn case of total disability with a maxi
mum of $3,000. Heirs in case of
death receive the same and the seal?
of payments for those partly disabled
ranges from $4 to $10 a week,
i Pennsylvania provided for the pay
ment of fifty per cent of wages, but
not more than $10 or less than $5,
with a maximum, total of $4.000. The
act is elective and .takes away from
the employers the common law de
fenses, but the people will vote in
November on a constitutional amend
ment permitting the legislature to
make lt compulsory. The act creates
a state insurance fund1, but employers
are permitted to protect themselves
in any other form of insurance or car
ry their own risks on approval of the
bureau of workmen's compensation
which will administer the law. Do

The Indiana law provides no state
insurance, but por mia the employer
to seek it where he clooses, or not at
all, if he give proof f
ability to pay the cox penaation. Thia
is fixed at 55 per cen . of the average
wage not to exceed 6 0 weeks and in
case of death, burial pexoensea to the
defendants not to excfeed $100 and 55
per cent of the weak y wases or 300
weeks. Domesti cse vants, and agri
cultural laborers ar exempt and
those engaged in int? state commerce.
The law is elective w th both employ
er and employe and ls administered
by a state industrial commission.
Fifty per cent tfea ly wage apt te
exceed 600 weeks is he . basis of the
Oklahoma law.
Iowa and- Alaban? are/the states
which prohibited chi d. labor. Maine
adopted a law undi which women
and boys under slxii ;n employed in
mills, factories and li undriea are not
permitted to work mo e than 6* hours
a week. Pennsylvanl ^enacted a sta
tute limiting the ho rs of -labor of
children between 14 >nd. 15 years to
il hours a week. J efattire of the
aw is that all such i hildren employ
