It was wonderful to hear him speak like that, and his eyes oh! could those be the eyes that were so care less and cold as a rulef For half a second 1 forgot "madame" In Heidelberg, and let my glance meet his own. 'Delia," he said, bending over me, and speaking without emphasis, and yet putting more strength Into the words than If they had been doubly underlined.

Perhaps ' never before In the history of BrltiBh Jour nallsm hava American topics and news taken up so much space as at present. , Just now the leading subject of dis cussion In the English press Is the selection of a successor to Sir Morti mer Durand as British ambassador at Washington. Many of the editorial writers agree; with Sir Mortimer that Washington Is the most important diplomatic post In the world," one of the principal weekly reviews, The Out, look, devoting more than a nag to the subject. The Outlook says ths British embassy at Washington has lost completely the political and so cial ascendancy it enjoyed under Lord Pauncefote. "The blame tor this Is not Sir Mortimer's, who commands universal respect, but he waa trans lated from a sphere whlob he filled with first distinction to an environ ment where It was practically impos sible for a diplomat of bis traditions to become acclimatized. There has been no misunderstanding between the United Slates and Oreat Britain, but there has been some cessation ot complete understanding. What Is now needed Is a man as little like I professional diplomat as can be imag ined, and resembling ae nearly as possible American representatives such as Lowell, Choats and Held, Who have been the most effective ambas sadors In the world because there haa been no atmosphere of formalism or convention about them." Continuing, the Outlook says the place formerly occupied by the Brit ish ambassador In Washington has More Soap ad Water Texarkana, Ark., Nov. 26. Kev. E. M. Orlggs, D. D., of Palestine, Tex.
