Lord Chancellor of England and Keeper of King's Conscience. Sir Robert Threshie Reid, who is paying a visit to the United States, is one of the most eminent of the present generation of public men In England. WhXen the present Liberal cabinet came into power a peerage was be stowed upon him and he was made lord chancellor of England. As a peer his title is Lord Loreburn. IIe draws $50,000 a year. As a judge he gets $30,000, and as he is remarkably able and profoundly learned in the law he Ia considered well worth that sum as head of the English bench. He gets the other $20,000 for presiding as chan SIR ROBERT WBID. eellor over the house of lords. To earn this money about all he has to do Is to sit on the woolsack-which is not a wool sack at all, but a scarlet topped, uncomfortable seat-and wear a sumptuous robe and a wig that comes down over his shoulders and effectual ly keeps the flies from browsing on his lordship's pate. Among his titles is that of "keeper of the king's con science." an inheritance from mediae val days, when the lord chancellor was supposed to be an ecclesiastic and have the spiritual well being of the sov ereign in special charge. The lord chancellor has enough trouble now adays in seeing to his own conscience, and this is especially true of Sir Rob ert, who has a more active one than some of his predecessors possessed. He controls a great deal of patronage in the way of judgeships, and his im mediate predecessor was a believer in the doctrine that to the victor belong the spoils. In consequence he filled the courts as far as he could with Tory judges. Liberals are now clam oring for a share of these positions, but the present lord chancellor does not think that politics should influence him in the matter of such appoint ments. Sir Robert, though he holds a posi tion intrenched behind conservative traditions, is himself somewhat of a radical. He espoused progressive poli cies as a member of the house of com mons. He was born in Dumfries, Scot land, in 1846 and won honors as a stu dent of Baliol college, Oxford; was sent to parliament in 1886, became at torney general in 1894, was knighted in 1899 and was made lord chancellor in 1905. MISS FREDERICA MORGAN. One of the Prettiest Girls of the Younger Society Set at Washington. One of the prettiest of the buds of last season at the national capital was Frederica Morgan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Morgan, who are promi nent in the summer colony at Lenox, Mass. The report that she was en MISs PFEDERICA MORGAN. gaged to the counselor of the German Pmbassy at Washington, Count von Ilatzfeldt, excited much interest in so ciety circles, especially among mem bers of the diplomatic corps, but was denied. Miss Morgan is a brunette, is quite sprightly and vivacious and is possessed of many accomplishments. She Had a Substitute.

There is no adequate support for the Impression that the early morning hours are in any way more wholesome or healthy than later periods of the day. Except in summer time, they are apt to be damp, foggy, chilly and among the least desirable hours of daylight. It is quite true that during the summer there is a sense of exhila ration about being abroad in these early morning hours, but this evapo rates with the dew and is apt to be succeeded by a corresponding depres sion and loss of working power later In the day. I have been observing my friends and patients for the past twen ty years in this respect and am in clined to the opinion that not a little of the depression and nervousness which so commonly develop in hot weather is due to excessive exposure to light, from habits of early rising, inherited from agricultural ancestors, not coun terbalanced by three to four hours' rest in darkened rooms in the middle of the day. Secondly, that the exhilaration expe rienced during the early morning hours is an expensive luxury, which has to. be paid for later in'the day. In fact, I have found that, as a general rule, to put it very roughly, the business or professional man who risers an hour before 7.30 or 8 o'clock goes to bed or loses his working power an hour and a half earlier in the evening. Each in dividual has in the beginning of his day about so much working pIower stored up in his brain and muscle cells. If he uses this up with great rapidity in the early morning hours he naturally exhausts his rtock the soon er in the afternoon or evening. It is largely a matter of when a man wishes to be at his best. If his occu pation is of such a character that he can clear off the brunt of his work in the early morning hours, then let him rise early. If, on the other hand, he re quires full vigor and readiness of mind and body in the latter part of the day or at night, then he must rise later to get it. Even in pure muscle work it is false economy to work too long hours. -American Magazine. The Landlady's Mistake. On her first night at the seaside lodgings the visitor found it. Incredi ble It seemed, for the landlady had ap peared a neat, cleanly, cautions body. But as the lady visitor knew little of her landlady and nothing of her pred ecessor in the apartment she decided to mention the matter at breakfast. "I found something in my bedroom," she began, and the landlady interrupted. "Then you mor t have brought it with you:" "I am quite sure I didn't." said the visitor, "for I counted all mine be fore I left home. But If you insist that this sovereign is mine, of course" -London Chronicle. AN INGRATE SOLDIER. His Cowardly Action Was the Making of a Nobleman. Here is a story of the battlefield. There was war between the Swedes and the Danes. One day a great bat tie was fought, and the Swedes were beaten and driven from the field. A soldier of the Danes who had been slightly wounded was sitting on the ground. He was about to take a drink from a flask. All at once he heard some one say: "Oh, sir, give me a drink, for I am dying!" It was a wounded Swede who spoke. He was lying on the ground only a lit tle way off. The Dane went to him at once. He knelt down by the side of his fallen foe and pressed the flask to his lips. "Drink," said he, "for thy need Is greater than mine." Hardly had he spoken these words when the Swede raised himself on his elbow. He pulled a pistol from his pocket and shot at the man who would have befriended him. The bullet grazed the Dane's shoulder, but did not do him much harm. "AnL, you rascal!" he cried. "I was going to befriend you, and you repay me by trying to kill me. Now I will punish you. I would have given you all the water, but now you shall have only half." And with that he drank the half of it and then gave the rest to the Swede. When the king of the Danes heard about this he sent for the soldier and had him tell the story just as it was. "Why did you spare the life of the Swede after he had tried to kill you?" asked the king. "Because, sir," said the soldier, "I could never kill a wounded enemy." "Then you deserve to be a noble man," said the king. And he rewarded him by making him a knight and giv ing him a noble title.-"Famous Stories Retold." To Clean a White Plume. A white plume that has become soil ed may be cleaned by dip)ping ti a paste made of flour and gasoline. Run it lightly through the fingers after each dipping. It should Le hung ,;s of doers until the gasoline has e\;lvporat ed, when the flour can ie easily shak en off, and it will be found that the plume retains its curl. If it should not be perfectly clean, repeat the op eration. Dropped the H. "Yes," said Hawkins, who had re cently bought some old silver at aum. tion, "this is the old'Hawkins family plate." "Indeed?"' said the observant guest. "But surely this is $n 'A' engraved up on it." "Is it? O-er-yes, of course. The original Hawkinses were English, you know."--Catholic Standard and Times DO YOU FRECKLE? If So, These Remedies May Be of Service. Freckle remedies are always in or der. Here are several: Morning and night rub over the skin a combination made of a half dram of boracic acid and a quarter of an ounce of ointment of rosewater. Do not think that this is going to cause the freckles to disappear like magic. It will not. It will simply prevent them from increasing and if they are very light in color will cause them to fade after a time. Stronger, but quite usable, if one does not unnecessarily expose the face at the time, are sixteen grains of oleate of copper mixed with half an ounce of oxide of zinc ointment. This should be rubbed on night and morning after washing. Still another lotion that can be ap plied several times during the day is a mixture of two ounces of lactic acid, one ounce of glycerin and half an ounce of rosewater. It should be mop ped on with a bit of muslin. An ointment that is sometimes more convenient to pack than a liquid is made of ten grains of levigated sul phate of zinc and a half ounce of elder flower ointment. These are mixed and rubbed on night and morning. HOUSEHOLD HELPS. To wash white silk well use luke warm water and nothing but pure white soap and iron with just a warm iron. It is the yellow soap, too hot wa ter and too hot irons that make the silk turn yellow. Malines that is crushes and bedrag gled, showing that it has suffered from the effects of dampness or even n rain shower, may be revived and freshened by passing it through the steam from a teakettle or a !aun of bollun wnater. After it has been thoroughly no isitened the tulle should then be hung in a er"r rent of air until it is crisp and dry. Chiffon and mousseline de sole readily respond to a similar treatment. One woman who does her own ia ,ln Ing has a high chair mladet for the pur pose, in which she sits before the bh. rd while she is working. In dampening clothes use a clean whisk broom: This will dampen the clothes evenly all over and make the weekly ironing a much easier task. He Knew Them. Once at an important function at Marlborough House Sir Francis Knol lys came up to the Prince of Wales and remarked. "Some gentlemen of the press wish admission, your royal high ness." "Oh." said the prince, "show them in. If they don't come in at the door., they'll come in at the ventilator." GOOD TASTE IN DRESS. Particular Attention Paid to Shoes and Gloves. If you would dress in good taste, pay - particular attention to shoes, gloves and veils, to nicety in the matter of neckwear and to trifles that give pret ty finishing touches to a plain cos tume. The woman who is dressed in good taste is not always the one who spends the most on her clothes, but rather the one who can afford so few frocks that she sticks to plain modes and colors best suited to her. The woman who will give a little thought to the matter of dress man ages to spend less money and get bet ter results and service than the care less, indifferent woman who is con tent to wear "just anything." A woman's gown is one of the in dexes to her character. If for no other reason, it should merit careful consid eration. Some women always dress loudly, al ways wear the extremes of fashion and even exaggerate extremes. If checked cloth, pointed shoes, short skirts or long coats are in style, they insist on broader checks, more pointed shoes, shorter skirts and longer coats than the fashion prescribes. In other words, everything is exag gerated, so that people will think that they are not only right up to fashion, but also a little ahead. Women who dress in this manner suffer because such things indicatt certain character qualities-inordinate vanity, an overestimationr of one's ims portance, superficiality, foolishness. Character is estimated by little things, and when people seem to spend most of their energies in thinking about, themselves it is taken for grant ed that they are not much good for the solid, substantial things of life. People who are given to thinking toe much of themselves always think too little p9f others. They are proverbially selfish, and selfishness is instinctively despised tb every one. Hidden Flowers. 1.
