' We all remember the pretty story we read In our school hlatorlea about Queen Isabella of Spain pawning her Jewels that she might obtain the nec- esuary fund to start Columbus upon that voyage which resulted In the dis covery of the New World. And we have always felt gratetul to Spain for this America of ours. Pretty as the story Is. truth discloses tho fact that Queen Isabella had already pawned her Jewels to help the 'lilng pay for a war, and that the money which led to the discovery of America was fur nished, not by the queen, but by . pebrew, I, nl a de SantaKel, who was the only man found In tho Old World who would 11 nance such a dubious en terprise.

(if the remaining quarter wsin part was ib-itbtful and tlie re-t un known, but this unknown part did not make one i-ontlnuous ftretch. It was , pieced In. ks It were, along the length of the wny, a bit here and a bit there. Thus one would have ten or fifteen miles along which the old Iltitlsh road corresponded with the modem high- I wny; then would coin iierhaps two rnll"s of doubtful Line, the hlstary of which hod to be rend nnd the direction noted l.ffire one could 1h; certain that ' It w-ni reslly part of the old road; then sfter that w-ouhl come, pay, half n mile of pure wnste heath or marsh or for est, lu which nothing but a meet core ful examination, the records of old maj", the evidence ot p!n-e names, nnd so fart'i. lcliK-1 one to ldentrfy the track of the Itrltlsh way; then the highway would appear again, coincid ing with the old trull, nnd so forth. long known or obvious bits cOmlng In between nhort doubtful or unknown bits, until Hfter Infinite pslna we built np the whole of tho original track with the doubtful exception of u few hun dred yards. It may Interest my readers to know whit causes chiefly preserved this rond and whut have tended to Its obllt- otntlon. The causes whlili preserveil It were toree. In the first place. It ran for tho uintu part along the rhalk hills which are known as the North downs. Just shove the level of cultivation, and chalk Is an excellent preservative for a ron.l of this kind. It takes the 1m prnriNlon of passing trnlllc, the weight of 'vlileli makes n sort of platform nlova; the hillside. It Is not easy to cultivate, utid people do nut build upon Its weights. Moreover, chulk does not wo! nwiiy, ko that such a road, once fiii-rt.--d, would rt-;r:-iti fir centurlei. TIm Hc-ond cause which jireserved the ond wjis the system of turnpike whlii wns Intrndiu-ed, I think, nbiut joars ago and bisted until our own lima Men nntut-nlly tried to avoid the turiiD-Ue If t!.v were on horseback or If thtr were drovers, nnd they would turn fT the go il turnpike. roads of the valley, where they hud to pay at every gate, nnd go nhing the old froo road above the hills. And, thirdly, tho pilgrimage to the tomb df St. Thomas; nt Canterbury, 1 which Hprnug up about 700 years ago, powerfully helped the survival of the i road. Winchester was beginning to full Into decay whun this pilgrimage rose, und Canterbury was no longer., very Important town, but when thou sands of men bad occasion to go from the west of Ihiglniul to Canterbury on a pilgrimage Winchester became the natural meeting place, and the road from Winchester to Canterbury once again grew lu Importance. Churches mid villages sprang up along it, twill lions nnd legends began to chug t i It, and one way and another the memory of II was wived for history and for mrsclves. I havo said that there were ninny places where the road was almost or mtlroly lost. The main cause of this was cultivation. As tho pjpulutlon rov duuscr It became nece.ibiitv tj plow tip the pouter laud high up on the hillside, nnd iu these old roadi were not metaled lu any way the moment Ihelr surface was plowed up no trncu of the road could ps,!'dy re main. Another ennse was tlx finr.:--tloii of the great parks which rich men' tieiin to Inclose and to wall around ntiout ISO years ago nnd later. If a rich man took n fancy to a bit of ground which used to be common and tn-ongb which tho old r mil went I e would put u wall round It and turn It into a park and divert the right of way by a special net of parliament round his new property. There are examples of this all along the old road -ns, for Instance, nt I.cml Htanlnpe's park nt Chovenlug, at the I.cvo.ion Oowers'ilrice at Titsey, at Lord (icr aril's park at Kustwell and many other places. The old road would also bo 1 -t over marshy ground, and now and then but very rarely, modern bulldln-is would appear on It, nnd then, or course.

Cgisw What Yois ICnow now There is real pleasure in chewing the best tobacco grown where the best tobacco grows in the famous Piedmont Country. Only choice selections of this well-matured and thoroughly. cured tpbacco is used in making SCHNAPPS. That's why SCHNAPPS and others of .the Reynold's brands, as shown by the Internal Revenue statistics for a fiscc! year, made the wonderful growth of six and one quarter million pounds, or a net gain of one-third of the entire increased consumption of chewing and smoking tobaccos in the United States. Evidently, chewers cannot resist the flavor and they cheer SCHNAPPS because SCHNAPPS cheers them more than any other chewing to bacco, and every man that chews SCHNAPPS passes the good thing along one chewer makes other chewers until the fact is now es tablished that there arc many more Sold at SOc. per pound In $c.
