In a recent issue of tau Philadelphia
Pr.as is toe following article:
?'Among the n'irtv ;de.as in music
comes an Interesting announcement
from the Hjhn School of -Music of a
violin kind-.rgarien class for children
from four to seven years of age. The
system aims primarily to train the
young student to discriminate/ and op
preclata musical sounds und arouse
an interest in the study of tho violin,
and, not Jess important to the- Child,
to concentrate the mind"
Musical circles are displaying great
interest in tlit. possibilities of sucli
youthful instruction. Now Richmond
can say t'.ia: such a school may be nenv
to Philadelphia, but it Is not new to
Richmond, for just such a school has
been in operation in our city for the
past three years, and has had remark
?n'.ee mi.-.- und r the ma nag" ? men t of
its founder. Mrs. l\ !.>. IL, who
received much e,r her training in Ger?
many, .where children are taught from
Sour yeans up. But .lass work i:, th.
South lias been origin.tied and taught
by Mrs. Hequembotirg. At first lliis
school was so small that .many teach?
ers would have be n discouraged and
given up, but Mrs. Hequcnsbourg knew
im siie.ii word as fall, and Richmond 1
van n'?w boast of a well established j
and successful aseltool of violin, sol
large now that it is divided livtO "four
classes. Tho first class represents
ages from four and erne-half to seven
years; second class, seven to ten: third
class nine to cloven, and senior class.
Each cjass is called an orchestra,
and It |s dellghuful to sCJ the Interest
these tots take in their orchestras:
nothing but sickness will ko-ip them
away from class day iplaylng. They
are given private lessons by Mrs. llc
quembourar or her assistants, and once
a V-'ok t'.iev are brought together to
play. It s 'wonderful to see thi HttU
ones reading nt slsht. getting notes,
time .nid ihrVwing correctly.
Richmond is nothing if not progres?
sive, and always ready to recognize
good Ideas; has given the groate.it
^ncoura>gfment to this enterprise, and
the. school haa (haken Its place among

PRESIDENT OF FRENCH
CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES
Election of M. Deschanel Makes
Him Conspicuous Candidate
to Succeed Fallieres.
II V l.A MARQUISE r>B FONTENOY.
AN EVENT has just taken place
In Franco that may possibly
have far reaching conseeiucnros
as far as international affair.-,
are concerned, and that in the not
very distant future. 1 allude to the
election of M. Paul Eugene Douls Des
, ? hanel to the presidency of tho French
I Chamber of Deputies, thus making
him the most conspicuous candidate
j for the presidency of the republic.
in succession to President Fallieres.
I There Is no disputing the fact that
I M. Deschanel Is a man of undoubted
talents; he is a member of the Acade?
my, a famous orator, and an Impres?
sive writer on political and social
j questions. But he is regarded by
I many as an "unsafe" man for the
position of President, for the reasons
that he has too limited a sensu of
tho responsibilities of any office hoi
may hold, makes too strong an as?
sertion of his own individuality, that
ho is too impetuous a talker, and also
too regardl.-ss of the consequences of
what he says.
As 1 mentioned in these, letters the
other day .he gave great olfense In
Vienna some years ago by declaring
in hi? speech of inauguration and
election at the French Academy, that
"Emperor Francis Joseph's death would
be France's opportunity, since it would
bring about the break np of the Aus
tro-Hungarlan EVnplre." For an
ordin?re French orator or welter to
make such a declaration would be
bad enough. But for a high official?
lie- was President of the Chamber of
Deputies at the time?to speak so
glibly about the destruction of a
friendly nation, and the demise of Its
beloved ruin, was unprecedented. And
yet M. I>es. hanel was so little able
to appreciate the significance of his
utterances that ho actually applied
for the position of ambassador at
Vienna, from which capital, of course.
a prompt notification was received
that he would be "persona noil grata."
Presidents of republics?like emper?
ors and kings?.it-e as a rule keenly
..live to the danger of an incautious
remark about a foreign country, and
submit every word to their cabinet be?
fore littering it. What would there
fore happen If the French elected as
their chief magistrate n man who,
while gifted With a copious vocabu?
lary of Incisive language, should have
the habit of heedless and unfettered
outspokenness. and eif saying the
wrong thing at tho time when it
would do the most harm, Is too un?
pleasant to contemplate.
Besides all this, he. is scarcely what
one would call "presidential timber."
lacking simplicity .of character. He
is too much of u dandy in his dress;
so artificial ami Insipidly correct as
to lay himself open to the charge of
foppishness and affectation. At one
time he was a suitor for the hand of
the sister of the notorious Mme. Hum?
bert.
The dignity of President of the
Chamber carries with it many advan?
tages, namely, the permission of liv?
ing at the. "Petit" Bourbon, a salary
of liio.ooo francs a year?which In
France means $100,000?and a score
more of privileges and advantages well
worth looking forward to.
An American iwho was so cosmo?
politan In his tastes that ho had resi?
dences In New York, Montreal and
Paris, apd who had relatives and con?
nections by marriage in the United
States, Canada, England, France. Hol?
land. Germany ;>ud rar off Australia.
Is, I think, well worthy of passing
mention.
I am led to allude to this subject
through tho fact that tho will of John

The English branch dates from the
time of the first Baronet, Sir Joshua
Vaniicck. who was the second son of
Cornelius Yunneck. paymaster-general
of the land forces of the United Prov?
inces.
This first baronet was a very rich
I,ondon merchant. His son was cre?
ated Baron Huntlngfleld. The present
baron is the fourth of his line, and
John Torrance Vanneck is his second
cousin. When the present baron suc?
ceeded to his father's title and estates,
he had a lawsuit on his hands which
threatened to deprive him of a con

stderable portion of hta property, and
which began In a. very curious way,
or rather, that was accomplished by au
Incident somewhat out of the common.
It scorns that when the second baron
HunllngflCld married. In IB 10, the
?laughter and heiress of Cualonet
Areudeckne, of Giownug Hail, Suffolk,
It was regarded as a matter of course
that the Uleverlng Ha.ll ?statu would
descend without question to Lady
lluntlngneki.
On the d.-uth of Chaloner Arcadcckne
the 1 lunllngnelda entered Into pos?
session. The third baron, wishing to
dispose of the Oleverlng Hall ostate,
placed it In the hands of a prominent
lirm of London roal estato agents,
with the understanding, of course, that
they would exercise the usual circum?
spection in Issuing permits to view
Ihn piace by likely purchaser*.
One day. however, three bicyclists
rode up to Gleverlng Hall, presented
permits duly signed by tho agc-ntd. and
asked to be shown over th>. place.
They we.ro courteously received and
the aged butler showed them tho
superti country seat.
.Suddenly the elder of tho three
visitors Informed the butler that they
.had made up their minds to stay in
the place, as it belonged to him. tho
speaker, and that he was determined
to exercise his right of ownership,
adding that in acting thus he was
tollowing the advice of his lawyer,
tor the place really belonged to him.
and in no m'iij? whatever to Lord or
Lady Huntlngfleld.
Convinced that ho had a gang of
lunatics to deal with, the butler called
tor assistance. The village policeman.'
the gamokWcper, the curpenter and
others quickly responded, and the visi- I
tors wc-re carried out of tho house. .
Thereupon the claimant served notices
of his alleged title on all thu tenants,
who were warned to pay the rents
to no other person or persons than
William Block, the claimant.
The latter, In t'ne statement of his
case, curriud the title to the property
back to tho year, 161G, but tho inter?
est begins with the your 1T4 1, when
Thomas Whymper was the owner. He
had four sons and one daughter. The
sons hud a lifo interest In the prop?
erty, ami leased It to tho ArcedocKnes,
who uamo Into possession, so It was
alleged, as tenants only. The son?
left no descendants, and neglecting to
collect t'ne rents from tho Arcedecknes.
the latter acquired a possessory own?
ership for the time being. But the
daughter married one Brady, and the
Issue of this marriage was a daughter,
who married John Block, from whom
the claimant was descendod.
Although the claim was barred by
tho atyiluic of limitations, yet this
annoying suit Interfered with tho sale
of Gleverlng Hall for a considerable
time, as of course no purchaser cares
to come forward and buy property
the title to which Is tho subject ot"
a lawsuit. The name Arcedeckne is
not often met with nowadays, having
apparently been absorbed into that i
of the Vannocks when tho heiress '
married the second Baron Huntlngtlclu,
But, lu a manner of speaking. It may
be said to be Immortal, for It was
an Arcedeckne thut furnished tho in- i
spiratiou for "Harry Faker" to Thack?
eray. In ? his novul "Pendennis," and
who was a frequent butt of the novel?
ist In the'r wordy encounters at the
Garrlck Club.
Sometimes, however, Arcedeckne. hit
back in a fashion that made Thackeray
wince. For instance, after the firat
night of the novelist's lecture on "The
Four Georges," Arcedeckne remarked
encouragingly, "All very well, Tbaek.
but?It wants a piano!"
