WT11TTEX FOIt THE SUNDAY ItCPUnLia
Two years ago, after Charles Major had
completed his novel "When Knighthood
AVas in Flower," lie was one day glancing
over a catalogue of old mid rare books sent
to him from London. In an obscure corner
of the pamphlet lie discocred the adver
tisement of a hook published 2W years ago
u nd bearing- this title:

theW experienced the nearest approach to
neart latiuro that a man could and survlt e.
The flnithlng touches had been given to
"Knighthood," and lie had staked all nis
hopes on its success. But here was a book
which seemed likely to prove him, In the
eyes of the critic, an audacious plagiarist,
however guiltless ho might feel in his own
heart. He wns so anxious to learn what
foundation the old volume might afford for
such a charge that he bent a cable message
for It. In due time it came, together witn
a note from the bookseller saving that, so
Iar as he could learn. "The Illustrious Lov
ers" had lain forgotten on the shelves of
his ancient shop for a century and a. half.
-Mr. Major read the old btory carefully
and found that it handled the adventures of
Princess Mary' and Charles Brandon in a
quaint and beautiful fashion, but that the
action of the story or hLstory. as it really
was moved In considerably different ways
from that of his own narrative. The val
ume cast many Interesting tide lights on
long-forgotten episodes In Sixteenth Century
history, and more particularly on the char
acter of Mary Tudor.
"The Princess Mary." says her impas
sioned and anonymous biographer, "as she

the chronicler has to say of her mouth:
"Her mouth was not inferior to her eyas,
for. being very little and shut with lips of a'

presented an object, not to be parallel'd for
beauty; and when again it opened, -was It

WRITTEN- FOR THE SUNDAY RRPPBLIC.
To carve a turkey at the table requires no
small amount of self-possession. Though
there are the decorations, the last football
game and a thousand other topics of inter
est to keep the attention of tho guests away
from the turkey end of the table, tlieie in
evitably comes the dreaded lull when th
carver, waiin with the struggle he is hav
ing with a refractory second Joint, pau"S
to imd the eyes of the u&-emuled company
fixed upon him us if drawn by a magnpt.
Of course, this usually happens at the most
critical point of tho operation. For the un
skilled carver it Is a decidedly embjirassins
position, and ths joint that you know per
fectly well how to locate and sever becomes
most obstinate and unruly until you are
ready to believe this turkey was made
without any joints. In sheer desperation
yon make a remark that will turn the ab
sorbed attention in any direction but your
own. and you are left to hack and hew tho
carcass as best you can.
To watch the practiced carver is really a
pleasure, and his easy manner in removing
Joints convinces joii that carving a turkey
is the (simplest, thing in the world. But to
carve a turkey skillfully requires Mimcthlng
trore than telf-po.sse.ssliin and a knowledge
from general observation, and tli.it h -i
e.irt-ful study of the bird's anatomy. Thu
amat-ur curvcr is a cook's bete noire. To
see his work of art ruthlessly hacked to
pieces by an unpracticed hand is enough to
put him in a temper, for the success of the
viand depnnds largely upon the dexterity
with which It is handled.
The host usually manipulates the carving
knife and fork, particularly al the Thanks
giving dinner. Thero seems to be a tradi
tion that on this day the bird in al! its
brown and savory splemior should be placed
intact upon th,- table. A thin, shnrp-bladeil
knife and a platter of -ufliciint size to hold
the fowl and its disjoint, d portions are iwe
essarv to enaUe the carver to work with
i.ittisess ami dexterity.
Whether it is good" form to .Mt or stan 1
while, accomplishing the work depends en
tirely upon tho comfort of llie licifornur.
There is nIo a question ns lu whethf- 'he
head of the turkey should lie to lile rarver's
right or left. Tills is also for the individual
to decide, but generally the head is to the
to embellish themselves: hut more might bo
Bpoken ot the sovereign beauty of her neck,
which when age had brought It to perfec
tion, became the masterpiece of nature.
Her stature was none of the tallest, but
such us ladles ought to have to please and
delight; and her gate, uddrcs and presence
promised so much that it Is no wonder that
the charms of nature, accompanied by a ten
der and passionate heart, gained her be
fore Uie ago of 13 the conquest of most of
her father's subjects."
Having done so much for the heroine ot
his story, the Frenchman proceeds to In
troduce his hero, Charles Brandon, in hard
ly less glowing praises. Of him ho says:
"He had nlready great intimacy with tho
Prince, and was the confidant of his most
secret pleasures; and, as he daily heaped
favors and honors upon him, he was often
heard say that he could not do too much
for ths handsomest cattleman in. his king-
left, as the wings and legs are more eisily
disjointed with a stroke from loft to risnt.
If the company b small and the bird ono of
good size, carve from one side onlv. The
other ide may be reserved for i-Hcing .-old.
The first move of the carver Is to Insert
the fork astride the breastbone, at the
point, plunging it deep enough so secure a
film hold. Then removr the drumstick with
ime stroke of the knife, first cutting
through the skin down to the Jclnt. hitting
it ;qu.-.rely. It is n little illrTicuIt to locate
thii joint, but b pressing the leg aw.iv
from the side of the turkey it is readily
It is claimed that the expert carver does
not nmoe the fork from tr breast until
In: has quite finished. Be that as it may It
Is quite necwury to use the fork in separ
ntlng the thigh from the "drumstick." and
the "hip" is a favorite part with u.anv.
To accomplish this, make a V-shaped cut
toward the Joint, holding the thigh against
the side of tile turkcv with the fork. The
"drumstick" drops off neatly Into the plat
ter. The next stroke removes the wing. A
deep cut through the ball and pocket joint
revers this with a part of the breast meat.
To strike the joint squarelv the first time
requires skill, though rometimes it Is Jonu
very neatly by pun- luck, and this calls
forth most favorable comir.tnl from the
expectant and hungry assemblam- If th
knife rioern't strike the joint at first, nio.'rt

end of the same age and stature; hla meln
and presence shewed even somewhat mora
accomplished; and by the sweetness of his
disposition and generosity, in many ran
counters, he gained tiie very' esteem of his
envious competitours. The too young ase
and immaturity of Princess Mary of Eng
land was the reason that during the Reign
of the late King, and until the project of
her marriage with the Prince of Spain, he
had not discovered to her his love, but by
looks and sighs, whereof, in all probability
the understood not as yet the secret lan
guage; but in a conjuncture so troublesom
to a lover as that was, taking counsel only
of his passion, that he might bewail his
destiny, he spake to her in a more intel
Charles succeeds in besting all his rivals
for Mary's heart, and upon that point the
chronicler makes this reflection;

to live together with less contention; and
contributing severally to the publick pomp,
whilst the preparations fcr a War with
France weie vigorously carried on, there
was nothing to be seen at London but Plays,
Horseraces. Balls and Dancing, where the
Ladys in rich dresses setting off the beauty,
which might procure them praise and es
teem, obliged likewise their Lovers to em
ploy their Kreatert advantages. On theso
occasions the lovely Brandon gained signal
honour; and whether It was for his good
meen. or his dexterity In all the exercises of
the body, there was no Gentleman in the
Kingdom that seemed not his Inferior, so
that amongst so many competitours, who
contended with him for the favour of the
Princess, there was not nny so fortunate as
to gain the least of It to his prejudice."

was accustomed to call "my knight, anil
brother." and, the historian add", "the.s-p
were the names that she gave him in her
childhood, and commonly still when they
were by themselves."
When we get well Into the volume we
find that, despite Brandon's eburms. his
way to the favor of the Princess was not
altogether an easy one. Court intrigues
and Henri' VIII's plans for an advantage
ous alliance on behalf of Mary put the poor
lover In desperate circumstances. Concern
ing an untoward incident which had over
taken him in his suit, the Frenchman
"Then it was that poor Brandon perceived
his ruin manifest. The Duke of Longueville
was the first that drew his blood at the
Battle of Spurs: he was the first that in
fected his mind with the sullen -poysort of
Jealousies, which-.trqublcd all his delights at
giOBdosi and a jt-lital. enemy, jva nn io
disquiet the rest of his days."
After the story reaches the point when
Mary became Queen of France, we conio
upon a bit of narrative which indicates
that Paris of the Sixteenth Century had
much the same suspicious charm for trav
elers that it has tn-day. Some of the mem
bers of Mary's rellnue arranged a plot by
which they may be concealed from ofilcial
eyes for a few days, and one of them, tln
Marquis of Dorset, cau"es himself "to be
denied at home, that, according as things
happened, he might have occasion to say
that they were both together, and this plot
agreed upon betwixt them, might have
that these two English seeking their ad"
ventures at Paris, as all strangers do, had
been together in some secret plage of di
vertisement." The old .story winds uo with thla rpnini
"It would now be time to speak of their
great and mutual satisfaction (all this refers
to the ultimate marriage of Charles' and
Mary and their happy wedded life), were it
not very easie to be conceived, that the
poss-esaion f a desired happiness Is so much
the more pleasant, that It has cost dear in
the purchase. Never was Queen so satisfied
to strip herself of Royalty, nor man so
pleased with a Queen. To conclude, they
deserved, as they enjoyed, a Sovereign fe-

humours and inclinations suited so perfectly
In all things, that notwithstanding the dif
ference in their fortunes, their souls had
a,!' tfl Qu'llltles that Sfts contract an in
dissoluble Union. And therefore have they
deserved the glorious name of true Lovers.
and In my judgment there are but few that
cn aspire to the Honour of such a Character."
