a most stringent rule has existed
for centuries requiring the Insignia of j
the order to be returned on the death I
of any of its knights by bis principal
heir, or by his executors. Tals rulo
Is rigorously enforced, even when the]

with regard to the Scotch Order of the

the Grand Cross?grade of the Order i
of the Hath. St Michael and St. George. ;
and the Star of India.
Moreover, it is a regulation In vogue
in tht case of Inany continental orders,

Of oourse the rule requiring tho

tended to preserve them, to prevent
them from falling into unworthy hands,
and from becoming the object of Just
such trade and barter as that of the

Emperor William' of Germany was
glad to pay several thousand dollars
for the recovery of the Jewelled insignia
of his ordei of the Hlack Eagle, which,
bestowed upon ihc late Bmperbr of

I When Sir William Gordon Cummins
was cnarged with a mistake while card
playing, during the still celebrated
grame, of bacarat played at Tranby
Croft, in IRS'.', ho is said to have given
a written pledge never again to touch
a card, while on tho other hand It Is
also stated that every one presont at
tho game also signed a paper ?olomnly
pledging him or herself not to reveal
tho affair as long as Sir William ad?

forced by his fellow officers of the
Seots Guard and by the governing com- |

his memorable suit for slander. His I
prln I pal lawyer was Sir Edward
Clarke, former Solicitor General, a
sell.made man of strong character,
but without tlnesse or tact. The Prince
of Wales, as one the members of the
bacarat party, was Invited by Sir Ed?

open court, instead of shielding him?

all alike denied having done so.
When the heir-apparent took the
1 the stand, Sir Edward cross-examined
j him with a degree of Independence1
i which led those present to believe thai
; he would mar his prospects of future
preferment. But, neglecting, out of
' respect for his future sovereign, to

of the prince. The latter was exceed- I
