SHE HAD A NIMBLE TONGUE.
Tha Old Duchess Could and Did 8w.ar
Like a Trooper,
The old Duchess of St Albans, who
had been the widow of Mr. Coutts, the
banker, when the duke, much her Jun
ior In ago, married her, was one of the
bnbltunl visitor at Tahnouth. My flret
vlow of hor, however, wns at the Crieff
hotel, on her way through to Kenmore,
when the duchess and her retinue ar
rived In eight cnrrlnges; for though by
birth of no family, she hnd a moat ex
alted Moa of hor own Importance and
when paying a series of short visita to
country houses wns so convinced of
the savage condition of the highlands
that she traveled always with her own
chef and patlsslnr. who alone were per
mitted to cook her meals at the Inns
she stopped at on the road.
I shall not easily forget the sight of
the disgorging of the duchess' own
cbarlot when It palled up at the Inn
door! First emerged her grace herself,
an enormously fat woman; then fol
lowed her three nieces, daughters of
Elr Francis Burdett, whereof the
youngest and best looking because In
heritress of her wealth, and Baroness

In single die, dutifully carrylr each
some article necessary to her grunt's
comfort reticule, cushion, wraps,
books, footstool and bag of toilet requi
sitos, the duchess' favorite lap dog and
hor pet purrot In a cage. After them
came her grace's private physician,
who traveled always in the same car
riage as herself, so as to be on the spot,
while the duke preferred the coach box
to the company Inside end no wonder!
All the time the duchess' tongue was
heard going scolding, complaining,
abusing everybody, from ber husband
downward, in unmeasured terms. The
nnfortunate nieces came in for no small
share of her harangue and earned pain
fully any share of ber fortune she may
have left them in ber will, for she
swore like a trooper or a Billingsgate
fishwife the whole time. Lady Login

Bunsan's Feat After His Goblet of
Solution Had Been Upset.
The rcm.nknblo skill In dealing with
the material of their experiments that
some chemists have Is well Illustrated
by the foüov Ing story told of the great
German chemist Professor Robert Bun
Professor Bunsen evaporated fifty
hogsheads of water from the Durk-
belm spring and carefully Isolated
from the residue a small quantity of
the salts of two very rare elements,
caesium and rubidium. lie dissolved
these salts in a small beaker of water
and set them aside ou bis laboratory
One day a friend came to see Profes
sor Bunsen. Unnoticed by the chemist
his visitor in leaning against the labo
ratory table tipped over the beaker and
spilled its contenta on the floor and ou
his clothing. The solution looked like
plain water, so the man thought noth
ing of the accident and a few minutes
later took his departure.
Shortly after the gentleman bad gone
Bunsen noticed that the contents of
the beaker had been spilled. Instantly

friend and brought blm back to the

Chinea Idols. -
The Chinese, according to a mission
ary, are the most exacting of worship
ers. When they pray to their Idols
they ask for definite material blessings
and they expect results. The life of an
Idol In China Is precarious. Gifts will
be heaped before It only as long as It
seems to be brluglng about the wishes
of Its followers. If the shrine falls
upon evil times and disappoints Its
worshipers their homage soon fades.
Not only do the gifts cease, but the re
sentful peouJo of the countryside will

TWO OLD SAILORS.
Why On of Them Ignored Ex.outiv
Officer Dewey's Commands.
In bis autobiography George Dew
ey, the hero of Maulla bay, records
that Fnrrngut's methods were always

principal place for tiling papers was

his orders himself, perhaps with his
knee or the shjp's rail as a rest The
author recalls that one day when he
was writing be looked up and said:
"Now, how in the devil do you spell
Appalachlcola? Borne of these edu
cated young fellows from Annapolis
must know." Tho author continues:
"A man who had such an Important
command could hardly have been more
democratic. One night I had given or
ders for a thorough cleaning of the
ship the next morning. I was awake
very early, for it was stlfllngly hot
Five o'clock came, end I beard no

No feature of the early Quaker move
ment was so surprising to contempo
rary historians as the prominent part
taken by women of all classes and po
sitions In spreading its message.
"They were not a whit behind the
men," remarks one seventeenth cen
tury chronicler, "In courage or in con
tempt to material obstacles. Imitating
them not out of a womanly precipi
tancy and boldness, but upon a de
terminate advice changing, as
it were, their sex and being transmut
ed from women to men."
A staid matron named Elizabeth
Hooton was the first to be "convinced"
by Fox's teaching and became in the
year 1049 the first woman preacher
among the Quakers. Ann bownor, the
young daughter of a clergyman, car
ried the met age to London, gathering
round her the nuclens of that Society
of City Friends which grew to be the
model and rallying grouud for other
towns and nations. Margaret the
wife of Judge Fell, was the "nursing
mother" of the infant church the cen
ter of all Its activities, the helper and
the ultimate appeal in all its distresses.
Mary Fisher, a servant girl from
Yorkshire, heads the long list of heroic
sufferers in England who were public
ly Bogged for their religion. She, too,
with an older woman, was the pioneer
who brought the Friends' doctrine to
New England In 1C50 and tasted the
first fruits of the persecution which
was meted out to hor fellow believers,
even to the extremes of mutilation and
death, by those who were themselves
the survivors of the Mayflower. Mabel

Gotham's Potter's Field.
In New York's potter's field more
than 6,000 bodies are burled in the
course of a yeor. New York's pauper
dead make it necessary that as many
as eighty workmen and half a dozen
keepers be maintained at potter's field
all the time. The "field" Is on Hart's
Island, at the entrance to the sound,
eighteen miles up the East river, and
the gravediggers, drivers and general
caretakers are prisoners from the
workhouse force on Blackwcll'a Inland,
with a beud keeper and several as
sistants, not prisoners, to supervise

of a flattened spheroid, greater In di
ameter at tb equator than at the
poles,' but this Is modified by the ac

diameter varies according to tho point
at which It is measured.
It might be expected that the diam
