Thing or Two. the sta; [By Cable Special to the Times-Star.] bat LONDON, May 16.-Did Cromwell son write Milton's poems? The alt is full of cryptograms and Donnllyan discove- not ries just now. Having devoted some as attention to the Shakepeare-Bacon con- ant troveray-for which I am proud to say cor I -have received an autograph acknowl- tea edgement from Mr. Donnelly-I have the been favored with a great many comn thl munications from rival discoveries. I ski think the best of these is a communl- Th cation from a gentleman who has found kn out that '"Paradise Lost" was really of written by Oliver Cromwell. The case fir for Oliver Cromwell is to my mind Ir- spi resistibly strong. ap John Mtlton, as every schoolboy to knows was the Protector's secretary. ea! Cromwell occupied his leisure moments mi in dictating to him the great Christian fir epic. It would have been fatal to Crom- th well politically and especially with his or army to have been known as a poet. In The thing was therefore kept secret. li1 My information supposes that on his is death bed Oliver Cromwell charged ca Milton to burn the manuscript. The Bi temptation, however, was too much for th the honest Puritan and he brought the by work out in his own name. I have th not space to go into the evidence. But hc there are one or two points which will ou strike every reader. Milton certainly yr wrote light verses as a young man, but nothing which indicates the serl, in ousness of the purpose of the author of vi "Paradise Lost." Further light is th thrown on his character by the well at known fact that he was the last under- or graduate subjected to corporal plaish- p( ment ateither University. Finally the ag prior evidence is clinched by a crypto- di gram like that of Donnelly. My cor- di respondent wisely refrains from telling at all he knows on this point. But it in will set people to thinking, I fancy, to si hear that there is not a page of t he "Pa- e' radise Lost" in which every letter that m forms the name of Oliver Cromwell is at not to be found. it p IENRiNY IAnoU(tITERtE. p A New York special says : The lay- gi ig of the corner-stone of the new ci Catholic university at Washington tl takes place on the 24th of this month. tI 'l'he event will be made doubly inter. ci esting by the bestowal by the Pope of a the golden rose upon Miss Mary a ( wendolen Caldwell of this city, whose o gift of $300,000 was the nucleus in the e, movement which resulted in the es- I. tablishment of what promises to be a L great seat of learning. The golden i rose was given a few years ago to Mrs. r Ellen E. Sherman, wife of General v Sherman, for her zeal in promoting u the interests of the Catholic Indian I missions in the west. Miss Caldwell I ig will be the second woman in this coun- I t try to receive such recognition from at htome. The Caldwell family is from Kentucky, Miss Caldwell's mother having been a sister of John C. Breeak inridge, formerly vice president of the United States. tier uncle is ltev. Robert Breckinridge, a well-known Presbyterian divine in Kentucky. The Washington Critic tells this in teresting anecdote of Chief Justice elect Fuller: Mr. Fl.uller, who has been nominated Sor Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 8 was once a legislative reporter at the Maine capital. On one occasion he I made a wager that on the following day 'S. in his report, he would put a Shakes pearean phrase in the mouth of every .E. member of the House who spoke. lie did it, even to the member who made the motion to adjourn. On the day fol lowing the IIouse was so piesed with the work of the young reporter that it grew - magnanimous and voted him an extra ", supply of pencils and rubbers. lie was ; called out from his work, compliment ed and called upon for a speech.
