Robert E. Lee's Definition of the Quali
ties That Make Him.
Lee hated parade. display and cere
mony. hated above all things being
made an object of publie gaze and
adulation. ils idea of high position
was high responsibility, a superior was
simply one who had larger duties, and
the mark of a gentlemn'i was a keen
sense of the feelings and susceptibili
ties of others. No one has ever ex
pressed this attitude more delicately
than he himself in this memorandum
found among his papers after his
"The forbearing use of power doe%
not only form a touchstone, but the
manner in which an individual enjoys
certain advantages over others is a
test of a true gentleman. The power
which the strong have over the weak,
the magistrate over the citizen, the
employer over the employed, the edu
cated over the unlettered, the experi
enced over the confiding, even the
clever over the silly-the forbearing or
inoffensive use of all this power or au
thority or a total abstinence from it
when the case admits it, will show the
gentleman in a plain light. The gen
tleman does not needlessly and unnec
essarily remind an offender of a wrong
he may have committed against him.
He cannot only forgive; he can forget,
and he strives for that nobleness of
self and mildness of character which
Impart sufficient strength to let the
past be but the past. A true man of
honor feels humbled himself when he
cannot help humbling others."-Gama
liel Bradford. Jr., in Atlantic.
SKIN OF A BADGER.
So Loose the Animal Can Almost Turn
Around In It.
The pelt of an'adult badger is ex
tremely thick and difficult for a biting
adversary to penetrate, writes a trap

the skin cover the body that the animal
is able to turu almost around in its
Should a dog acquire a hold on the
throat the badger turns himself so that
the dog's grip is on the back of the
badger's neck without having loosened
his first hold. Then the badger secures
a viselike grip upon some vulnerable
portion of his enemy, and while his
long tusks penetrate to the limit he
digs and scratches with his front feet,
which are furnished with claws almost
as formidable and deadly as might be
expected from an anteater of the dark
