“HAMLET" AND AMY ROBSART
Why Shakespeare Camouflaged a Story
That Could Not at That
Time Ba Told.
It seems strange, so far as I know
Shakespearean literature, that no crit
ic has perceived the remarkable applic
ability of the tragedy es Amy Robsart
to Hamlet James Westfall Thompson
writes in the North American Review.
The language of the play most star
tlingly fits in with the case of Amy
Robsart, the suspicion resting upon Lei- ;
cester of having compassed her mur
der, and the suspected liaison be
tween Leicester and Elizabeth.
As long as Elizabeth lived even j
guarded criticism was dangerous. It
required a change of dynasty to re
lease even veiled speech. As for flat
open discussion of the mystery of Amy
Robsart or any other murder case of
Bote, it was still quite Impossible.
Hence Shakespeare’s resort to a drama
In which under camouflaged guise Lon
doners might perceive the real spirit
and condition of the age. Hamlet is
the most brilliant assortment of dou- ;
ble-edged language, covert criticism,
cutting allusions to contemporary ■
men, women and events, burning scorn, I
withering irony, to be found in any
literature. If read aright, the play
dazes and astounds the reader by its
keenness, its satire, the stinging lash
of its language, its mockery or con
demnation of some of the very great
est personages in Elizabethan Eng
Many Italian cities during the Mid
dle ages had a curious way of punish
ing bankrupts. A large stone was
set up in the market place of the
town, and to this stone, on a certain
day, were led ail traders who had
failed within the last year. One by
one they were placed in the center
of the stone, and their balance sheets
were read to the crowd, which was
permitted to jeer at each one in turn
for a specified time, the presiding
official “calling time" on the abuse by
striking on a bell.
When the jeering was over the bank
rupt was bereft of a necessary por
tion of his clothing and seized by
the shoulders and knees by six pub
lic officers, who deliberately bumped
him on the stone 12 times, In honor,
it Is said, of the Twelve Apostles.
Schoolboys were encouraged to attend
this performance, as It was considered
to give them a wholesome lesson in
First Jews In America.
There may have been a few Jews
tiere before 1654, but it was in that
■year that they were definitely allowed
ito seek asylum in New Netherlands.
[There was a provision that “Jews
■ shall have permission to sail to and
trade in New Netherlands and to
live and remain there, provided the
poor among them shall not become

lived up to so faithfully that in 1916,
with a Jewish population in New
York of more than 1.250,000, there
were but 72 pauper Jews in the alms
house on Blackwells island.
George Borrow's Dialogue.
Circumstantial as Defoe, rich in
combinations as Lesage, and with such
an instinct of the picturesque, both
personal and local, as none of theft
possessed, this strange wild man holds
on his strange wild way, and leads you
captive to the end. Moreover, that his
dialogue should be set down hi racy,
nervous, idiomatic English, with a kind
of language at once primitive and
scholarly, forceful but homely—the
speech of the artist in sods and turfs,
—if at first it surprise and charm, yet
It ends by seeming so natural and just
that you go on to forget all about it,
and accept the whole thing as the
genuine outcome of a man’s experi
ence, which it purports to be. —Henley.
Made Paradise for Birds.
A naturalist is the last person In the
world one would expect to succeed as
a farmer. They won’t plow a field if a
bird has made Its nest there. John
J. Audubon, greatest nature student
of his day, bought 40 acres at Car
mansville, on the Hudson, to do some
i farming. The best part of his prop-
I erty was fenced in for deer, elk. and
wolves. His orchard, 200 trees of
apples, pears, plums, apricots, and nec
tarines, was left as a paradise for
birds —it was Audubon’s study. How
ever he had no scruples against fish
ing, and caught 200-pound sturgeons
in the Hudson.
Life's Darkest Moment.
I came running home and told my
aunt I had a date with the prettiest
girl In school. She said I could not
go until I wore long trousers. After
supper I decided I would slip off and
go. So 1 went to my room, dressed
In the dark and beat IL Just as I
stepped in the door at the home of
the girl, I looked down to see what
kind of a job I had done lacing my
shoes in the dark. But no sooner had I
looked than I backed out of the door.
For my aunt had sewed white nifties
on the bottom of my short trousers. —
Many Bug Varieties.
We have In the United States a
long list of Insects we usually desig
nate as beetles, says the American
Forestry Magazine. There are some
fifteen thousand different kinds of
them, and they range In size all the
way from little ones that it almost
requires the use of a microscope to
see, to such giants as the Spotted
Origin of Names.
No matter who you are It Is likely
that the origin of your name lies in
the occupation of some of your re
mote ancestors, the evolution of which
-Ln many cases is remarkable if ’not
I romantic. Sometimes personal ap
i pearance or characteristics were
I seized on to designate one person from
another, or resemblance to some ani
"Tally-ho!" and "Tantivy!"
"Tally-ho!” was the English hunts
man’s cry to encourage his hounds, es
pecially when the fox broke covert.
The term Is also used to denote a four
in-hand coach, or drag. “Tantivy”
was the bunting cry to denote that
the chase was In full swing. It wa»
probably formed In Imitation of the
note of the hunting horn.
Birds in the Dark.
Not a few birds practically rear
their nestlings In the dark, says the
American Forestry Magazine. Well
known examples of this are seen In
sand martins and kingfishers—birds
that dig, or scrape out, iong burrows
In banks, and lay their eggs at the
farther end of them.
Why Leek Is Welsh Emblem. |
While marching to battle against an
English army In A. D. 640, Welsh sol
diers plucked leeks to place in their
caps to distinguish themselves from
the enemy. They won a great victory
that day, and the leek was chosen as
the emblem of Wales.
All Peace Departed.
There were twin babies at Edith’s
house, and at first she was all taken
up with them. A caller, congratulat
ing her on their presence there,* re
ceived this startling answer: “If there
was only one It wouldn’t be so bad,
but now when one isn’t crying the
other is, and it’s cry, cry all the time.”
Evolution of Familar Word.
The tracing of the term “pocket
handkerchief” reveals some somewhat
peculiar facts. At first it was de
scribed as kerchief (couvre-chef), a
covering for the head carried in the
hand, and at length pocket-hanker
chief, a covering for the head held in
the hand and kept in the pockeL

Press dispatches state that grain and potato producers In
the Northwest have suffered a loss ot 1450,000,000 on account of
failure ot transportation facilities.
Handling ot th sugar beet crop In our districts this fall
has been completed without any loss to growers by reason ot
railway difficulties. Almost Insurmountable obstacles were over
come In providing cars to move the beets to factories with short
campaigns. A mlnlmun of piling was required of the growers.
While at some times sugar shipments were delayed nothing
was remitted to hold up the movement of the raw, perishable
beets from the farms. The successful transportation o* this
beets from the farms. The successful transportation of this
year's beet crop reflects great credit upon the railroads In our
territory, who co-operated to the utmost.
The sugar beet crop is the one farm product with a positive
and easy cash market, with no storage or car shortage problems
to worry the great mass of our growers. No dullness in the su
gar market nor any fluctuation In prices affects the delivery of
the sugar beet crop by farmers.
And the sliding scale contract for bsets makes It the only
crop which leaves the farmer a financial Interest. In hie' product
