THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: NOVEMBER 27. 1910.
B STRANGE ENGLISH CUSTOMS Queer Series of Serried Owing: to the King from Nobles. LAUD TZIH7RES H1SOE THEBXON Lancashire City t Mar s Weweem h Lord Mayor tae Comtal Year . Miss Rxlawioil Writes Flay. BT LAPT M.4RY MANTVARINU. LONDON. No. X (Special to The Bee.) Old custom die bard la Eagland. Espe cially la this true about matters whtclj have to do with land tenure and terri torial privileges. In the oMm days tha lords of the land were required to make service or payment for their holding which may have had valuH In those daya. but which are de cidedly old In tha twentieth cwitury. Fre quently the fart that these payments are mad la noted In the press. For example, by order of the duke of BuoeleiP-h a no tice har, been, Issued calling upon residents f abnut rwemtr parishes lr Warwickshire to attend at Knlghtlow Hill before sunrise on Martinmas ev and pay wroth silver. The custom ta on of tha most quaint In England and has been regularly observed for many centuries. Persona will Ignore the rax and are liable to be called u;n to produce a white bull vita red ears and tioee. Then Ring George's stock of fuel ha been augmented by tha receipt of two fag sota (roan the corporation of Looxloa. this being tha legal due as quit rem for certain lands. It Is nice to think that the king Is sure of one good, comfortable fire dur ing the coming winter, anyhow. Other similar "payments In kind" to which hie majesty Is entitled. If lie care to assert his rights, are an annual bowl f porridge from the lord ef the manor ef Addlngton. a bucketful of taow from the owner of the Foulis estate In Scotland and a garland of rosf-s from the owner of Crendon, In Buckinghamshire. These things, however, would not amalgamate well, especially the snow and the rosea Perhaps that la why his majesty never In. slsts upon having them. He Is also en titled, should he visit Aylesbury In the win ter, to call upon ths owner of certain lands to furnish straw for his bed and else for the floor of his room. Even these at tractions, however, do not entice tha king to Wait Aylesbury often In the winter. Wmt Aa Ler4 Mtrori, It la not generally known that women can and do fill the office of lady mayor f British municipalities. Oldham, the great Lancashire cotton ptnulng center, will tn all probability have a lady mayor In the corning year, as It ha been decided to ask Mrs. Lees of Merneth Park to accept the office. She will be the second lady mayor in English history, the first being Mrs. Gar rett Anderson, mayor of Aldeburgh In Suf folk. It was only in 1K8 that women were allowed, by the qualification of the women bill, to sit on county and borough coun cils. Mrs. Lees, who has been a member ef the council for two years. Is known locally aa the "Lady Bountiful,' having given very generous support to the various In stitution of tha town, and ha purchased for tha corporation large plots of land, which have been laid out a recreation round. ahe was recently given the free dom, of the borough. The lady mayor of Aldeburgh, by the way., after two year of office, has e. pressed her wish not to be again elected, and also her desire to retire from tb town council, owing to advancing years and. har numerous other engagements. rtar b Mtaa Redmoaa. 1 hear that the little Irish play by John Bedreoade daughter, which Is shortly to be produced at tha Palace theater, la shap ing promisingly at rehearsal and look like being a notable success. Mia Johanna Redmond is only 33, hut she ha already made her mark a an authoress, having written a Dumber of stories which, have won considerable popu larity ta Ireland. Nor la ah altogether new to the footlights, for a one-act play of her own made a hit at the Court theater a coupla of years ago. The heroine In that piece was capitally played by her sister, Esther, who recently married a New Tork doctor. Next to authorship. Miss Redmond's favorite dlvrston is horse-rid-tng, and she I often seen taking a canter In the Row with her father and mother. The Irish leader has been married twice, and is a happy grandfather devoted to home and children. HI first wife was an Australian heiress, who died, leaving him with two daughters and a sou. Young Redmond is at the Royal uni versity. Publln, studying for the Irish bar. He is remarkably like his father, even to the smallest mannerisms of speech and ges ture. I hear great account of his Intel lectual brilliancy, and am told that hi professors prophesy for him a distinguished legal career. Kitchener to Settle Dow, ft Is now only a matter of day before Lord Kitchener will settle In Broom park, the mansion he has acquired In Kent. His lordship since hi return to town, baa been ransacking London for old week I ran up against him at well known second hand dealer in the 'West End. where he was Inspecting a number of Old English chairs and tables. Probably the young assistant attending to him marvelled at the time at the extra ordinary knowledge his customer displayed tn regard to the subject. During the whole time Kitchener scarcely spoke at all; he imply turned over each article that was shown him, minutely examined it. and with a curt "That will do," or "I wont have that" transacted his business; and hastily writing some instructions on his card. which be handed to the assistant, hurriedly left the shop as though he had never a moment to spar. Alexandra Wtili Wew Code. It Is generally reported in court and diplomatic circles, both at home and abroad that Queen Alexandra la anx ious for King George to sanction a new code of precedence, which would place her on an official equality with the Queen Con sort. Thla is an unheard of arrangement In western Europe, but It exist In Russia ' where the empress mother is legally the moet powerful member of the Imperial family after the csar himself. The report has been circulated all over Europe, and it lias caused much gossip at (oielgn courts. rhalatongkora's Instructress. In rio chronicle ef the lite of Chulalong korn. the late king of Flam, has It been mentioned from whom the Inspiration came which made his oriental majesty a man of enlightenment with ntault&nt untold bene fits to his Ungdom. It was to an English ' governets of great refinement and Intel lectual gifts that Chulalongkorn was in debted for hi early education avid llngulMlc attainments. This lady la still alive, en joying a ripe, old ad, snd resides tn Montreal in the vicinity of MoGlll univer sity. After much travel she married and settled don In Canada, and in the last generation was a warm friend of Long fellow, Emerson and Oliver Wendell lloimea This lady' son married alstsr of the late king of s-lam, and has for a long time been a notable figure tn the country of his adoption, while her grand son occupies a prominent medical post In Tain.

He ha played four year on the foot ball team a left taokl nd ha played very creditably for the school. He Is tleutena.-t colonel of the Omaha High School reKlnient of cadets, which Is the highest ranking cadet office. A far a his ability to lead hi class through a prosperous year, no one doubt It. Loa Howard as vice president Is con sidered very capable for the position that he holds. She ha been the leader of the girls In the ticket selling contests and has led them to vlatory. Marthena Moore was chosen to write the minutes and to keep the record a She 1 second to none In her ability to do this. The banker of the class ia Leonard Marshall. ll will handle all the money and no one dispute hi capa bility to do so. A ergeant-at-artns, Donald How and Bernlce Border were chosen.

Every year the senior class of the Omaha High ochool give n entertainment of some kind for which a small admission fee la chsrged. Th money made In thl way Is put together and with It is bought some ornament which la left In the school. In Howe. 1906 and 1909 the senior class gave a senior fair. This consisted of about ten show in which the senior took part. With th money made the 1908 class purchased a ailver loving cup for athletic. Th 1809 class bought many pictures and statues. Laat year the senior das gave an Ameri can history pageant and a play, the money from which will be used to buy some bronze tablets.
