RENOWNED AS GREAT RULER
Roman Emperor, Trajan, Spread the
Boundaries of the Empire and
Governed Juatly at Home.
The Roman emperor, Trajan, whose
full name was Marcus Ulpius Tra- ,
/anus, was born about the year 56
at Ralica in Spain, which was then a |
Roman province. He was trained for
a military career and gained dlstlnc- I
tion in the Parthian and German cam- i
paigns, and after holding two civil
offices was adopted by the Emperor I
Nerva, whom he succeeded on the I
imperial throne in the year 98. The
greater part of his time as emperor
was spent in the .field commanding
his troops. His first campaign was
carried on beyond the Danube against
the Daeiuns, whom he conquered after
a long struggle. In the conquered
country he planted a Roman colony,
and the descendants of those colonists
are the Roumanians of today. Trajan’s
next war was carried on in the East.
He made Armenia and Mesopotamia
into Roman provinces, but suffered
defeat at Ctesiphon, not far from
Kut-el-Amara, where a British force I
was cut off and compelled to sur- 1
render during the World war. In his ’
rear the Jews of Cyrus and Cyrene ,
rose in revolt and made fearful mas
sacres, and disorders also arose in '
the West. Trajan returned to the!
coast and took ship for Italy. His |
health was broken and while on the
journey be died at Selinus In Cilicia,
Asia Minor, in August, 117 Trajan
found time to accomplish much In the
internal improvement of the empire.
He beautified Rome; he constructed
canals, great military roads, and har
bors, and built up towns. Law was
enforced and justice fairly admin-.
FISH MISTAKEN FOR VESSEL
Peculiar Appearance of Swordfish
Gave Rise to Many Strange
Stories Concerning It.
In the warm waters of the Indian ■
ocean there lives a strange mariner, ,
who Is the cause of many tales among
the natives of the near-by coasts. They
tell of a wonderful sail often seen In •
the calm seasons, when not a breath
disturbs the water, and the sea rises '
•nd falls like an immense sheet of i
glass. Suddenly a sail appears, ap- '
parently driven along by a mighty |
wind. This sail glistens with rich'
purple and golden hues. On it comes,
quivering and sparkling as If covered
with gems; then, suddenly. It dis
appears as quickly as it came I
Many travelers have listened with
unbelief to this strange tale, until,
one day, this beautiful craft passed
directly under the stern of a passing
vessel, and it was seen to be a gigan
tic swordfish which is now known as
the “sailor-fish.” The sail was really
an enormowdy developed dorsal fin,
over 10 feet high, and richly colored
with blue and iridescent tints. As
the fish swam along near the surface
of the water this great fin waved to
and fro, so that from a distance it
was easily mistaken for a sail.
Father of Three Kings.
Charles Bonaparte, father of the
great Emperor Napoleon, was a hum
ble lawyer, with no very extensive
practice, in the sleepy little town of
Ajaccio, in the isle of Corsica. He
seems to have been a most affection
ate and exemplary parent, and as the
father of three sons who became kings
(Joseph, king of Naples and Spain;
Louis. King of Holland, and Jerome,
king of Westphalia), and a fourth who
became the greatest military com
mander, monarch and king-maker of
modern times, he holds an unique
place in history.
There were thirteen children In the i
family, Napoleon being the second. ;
Charles Bonaparte, although hardly
w’ell-to-do, strove to give his sons the
best possible education, arid had he
not decided to send Napoleon (then
aged ten) to the military school at
Brienne, the whole course of the
world’s history might have been
Word “Lot” of Puritan Origin.
The use of the word “lot" to des-
Ignate a field or plot of land, is uni-1
versal in the United States. It had
Its origin among the Puritans, and
was the product of their strict adher
ence to Biblical customs.
Among the early settlers of New
England the extensive salt-marshes
from which the salt-hay was cut. were
owned In common, every man helping
himself to as much hay as he wished.
As the population Increased this con
dition could not prevail with general
harmony, and it was agreed to divide
the marshes equally among all the
families. Tills was done by the Bib
lical fashion of lot and the portion
which fell to each man was known as
“his lot.” In a short time the word
came to apply to any piece of land,
and finally reached the meaning of
any great quantity.
Survival of Old Roman Custom.
The custom of appointing promi
nent citizens to act as a guard of
honor at a great man’s funeral Is the
survival of an ancient Roman custom.
The name ‘pallbearers” also descends
from the old days In the “City of
the Seven Hills.”
“Pall” comes from the Latin word
“palla,” the long sweeping robes worn
only by priests and men and women
of the highest standing. When a great
personage died his "palla” was thrown
over his coffin and a number of his
distinguished friends were permitted
to “bear the palla” to the grave and
to act as guard of honor to the dead.
