Daniel Lambert,VlVIio Died In 18G9,
Ciot Too OIie?e to, Wabble.
The fnihe of Daniel Lambert as a
champion among fat uien in England,
If not in the world, still remains unrivaled.
Daniel was born at Leicester 1
in 1770 and died in 1S09 at Stamford.
The grandson of a celebrated cocuflg
Liter and addicted to sport throughout
liis life, his dimensions were not :
extraordinary, and his habits were not I
different from those pf other lads un- I
til lie was fourteen years old. When!
twenty,-three years of age, however, lie!
turned the scale at thirty-two stone, j
and. although he is recorded to ..have
been then able to walk from Woolwich
to London, at the time of ids death, in '
Liis fortieth year, lie had attained the
prodigious weight, of lifty-twP stone, or
7-S pounds, and was more or less help-1
less. He was a modest man. and when j
n>vnd ntrvsion 1 iri'p.i t ?iess I J
fame was thrust upon him. He was '
for a long time unwilling to be made
a show of, but he gained a more than J
focal reputation, and people traveled
from far to see him, resorting to vari- 1
ous devices In order to he allowed to
do so. At length the prospect of profit 1
overcame his resolution, and ?or four '
years before his death he exhibited
himself in London and in the provinces.
He was apparently a man of some 1
wit, for once, before he permitted tlie
public to gaze upon him, an inquisitive J
person' hod gained access to his, presence
by pretending to he a fellow
sportsman interested 1" die pedigree of
a mai'e, whereupon Lambert promptly
replied. "She was bred by Impertinence !
out of Curiosity." Before the days of
Daniel Lambert, Edward Bright of ^
Maiden was a well known fat man, al- '
though his name no longer lingers as
a household word. He died in 1750 at 7
the age of thirty* years, weighing fortytwo
stone and seven pounds, and is
stated to have been an active man till <
a year or two before his death, when his
corpulency so overpowered his
strength that his life was a burden and
his death a deliverance. Both Bright
and Lambert seem to have been genial,
good humored fellows and very popular
among those who visited them. Indeed
popularity seems to be the lot of .
the corpulent in fact as well as in fiction.
The heroes of fiction, however. ,
have the advantage in the matter of
lasting glory, and the names of Daniel ,
Lambert and the fat boy of Beckham
sink into insignificance beside these of
Falstaff and the fat boy in "Pickwick." "

When James Russell Lowell was
minister to England, ho was guest at
a banquet at which one of the speak- '<
ers was Sir "Frederick Brain veil. Sir
Frederick was to respond to the toast.
"Applied Science." It was long after
midnight when the toast was pro- <
posed, and several speakers wore still
to be called. Rising in his place. t:.b< ]
scientist said:
"At this hour of the night, or, rather. .
of the morning, my only interest In ap- ]
plied science is to apply the tip of tin *
match to the side of the box upon 1
which alone it ignites and to apply the .
flame so obtained to tlie wick of a bed- j
room candle."
A moment later Lowell tossed a pa- ;
per across the table t:o him bearing j j
these two lines:
Oh, brief Sir Frederick, would that all .
could catch .

the most notorious misers in the eighteenth

their method of acquiring it. The total '

"I am dying." said Barlow. "Just

"I will," replied Gordon.
He sent for Mrs. Barlow, giving her
safe conduct through the southern
linos, and then rode away, certain that
Barlow's death was a question of only
i few hours at most.
But Barlow did not die. His wife
came promptly and had him removed
to the town of Gettysburg, where she
nursed him so faithfully that he recov- /
ered. \ j N
Many years passed until one night ^
both generals were guests <it a dinner
in Washington. Some one brought
them together and formally introduced
them. Time had altered the personal s
ippearance of both.
"Are you any relation to the General ?
Harlow who was killed at Gettys- [
burg?*' asked Gordon. '
"Yes; a very near relation," answered
Barlow, with a laugh. "I am '
the very man who was killed- But I ?
have been informed that a man named
Gordon lost his life in battle later on. ?
Tie saved my life at Gettysburg, Are
you any kin to that man?" 8
"I am lie,"'was the reply. "

Jewelry ziziil 3I.is;lc.
Finger rings, earrings, bracelets,
orooches and other articles of personal
idornment originated not from the aesthetic
sense of our remote ancestors,
but from their belief in magic. Even
civilized men today sometimes entertain
a superstitious regard for small
stones and pebbles of peculiar shape or
color and cariy them about as charms.
The Greeks and Asiatics used stones. |
beads and crystals primarily as amu- a
lets and cut devices 011 tliem to en- "
innce their magical power. The use of -
sucli stonc-s as stans \v;is &euuuuai^
and may at first liavo boon for sacred
purposes only. When a primitive poo- ?
pie first find sold tlioy value it only
for its supposed magic and wear nug- _
rets of it strung with beads.
