ARGUCKLE BROS., Notion Dept., Hew York City, N.Y. The Coach Id F.mrlr Times The introduction of coaches id Eng land is credited to Queen Eleanor, who died in 1291. Her death was thus amiably discussed in a ballad of tbe time, entitled "A Warning I'iece to England Against Pride and Wicked nesse. being tbe fall of Queen Eleanor, wife of Edward, King- of England, who. for her pride, by God's judg ment, sunk into 1 he ground at Charing Cross, and rose at Queensbitbe: " She was tbe first that did invent. In coaches brave to ride; She was the first that brought thia land To deadly sin and pride. Later testimony, no less direct, credits the first introduction of ' coaches to Sir Thomas Chamberlayne, ' English ambassador to the court of Charles V. of Spain; and again to the earl of Rutland, for whom Waller Rippon. Queen Elizabeth's subsequent ! coachmaker, is recorded to have built the first coach that ever was seen in England, Anno Domini, 1555." However this may be. a great stir was certainly made in England by the magnificence of the royal coaches which Queen Bess received as pres ents from her admirers abroad. Her admirers at home followed suit. Thus I Sir IMiilin Sid nev risked his knicrhtlv reputation by appearing in a coacli instead of on horseback, riding int Shrewsbury in his wagon, "with his trumpeter blowynge, very joyful to behold."
