In iK'an Holes "Memories ar re lated several anecdotes of the Duke of Wellington, the first of which shows that he had modesty common among great men, that Is unconscious of its own greatness. He met a lady who was going up the steps to see the model of Waterloo, and remarked to her: "Ah. you're going to see Waterloo. It's very good I was there, you know." A bishop was once preaching In the Chapel Royal of St. Jiimes, when he was lunch perplexed by the conduct of the verger, who at the close of the ser mon opened the door of the pulpit and suddenly closed It with ajl his force, so that the noise rang through the building. "He luforined me In a whisper," re ports the bishop, "that his tirace the DuWe of Wellington was asleep aud that, not liking to touch blin, they adopted this method of rousing iilin from his sluinlmrs." Ths ingenious simulation of a bombardment neve failed to stir the old warrior. Wellington left behind him three memorable sentences. "Education without religion would surround us with "clever devils." To a verger who pushed aside a poor man wlio was go ing up before blin to the altar, with the words, "Make way for his Grace the Duke of Weliugton," he said, "Not so; We are nil equal here."

The incident gave rise to much comment "As I was sitting alone in my office the detective entered and asked me it I did not wish to make- tome money. 1 replied that I waa in business for just that purpose.

It is easy to get at, and all you'll have to do is to walk in, after they have opened the way, unlock the safe, take out $100,000 and leave the re mainder for them. It's the easiest kiud of money.' "By 'the boys' the detectve meant a notorious gang ot burglars which had been conducting a series of daring oper ations. I told the detective that I had been much given to card playing in my yonth, thus acquiring a strong prefer ence for a lone hand, and that this pre dilection had become too firmly fixed to be changed.

There Is lit tle doubt that It Is an offshoot of some of the old French country dances. It resembles several of them In form. From New Orleans It spread over the entire south and thence to the north. It was found of convenience to the plantation negroes. They were not wedded by license, and It was seldom that the services of a preacher was called In. At a cake walk a man might legitimately show his preference for a woman and thus publicly claim her for wife. In effect the cake walk was not different from the old Scotch marriage, which required ouly public acknowledgment from the contracting parties. So this festival became iu some sense a wooing, aij acceptance or rejection and a ceremony. This ex plains Its popularity with the blacks, outside of Ws beauties, with the accom paniment of music, which is competent at all times to command negro support.
