Among the humorous and human
Btorics in Dr. T. L. Pennell's recent
book, "Among the Wild Tribes of the
Afghan Frontier," is one of a British
officer in the Kurram valley who inter
rogated an Afrldl with regard to what
was then considered a probable con
flict. "Now tell me," said the officer, "If
there were to bo war which God for
bidbetween Russia nnd England,
what pait would you and your people
take? Whom would you sido with?"
"Do you wish mo to tell you what
would please you or to tell you the
real truth?" was the naive reply.
"I adjure you to tell me what is the
white word.'"

would just sit up. here on our moun

One by one the old landmarks of
this famous quarter, the home of tho
students nnd the Intellectual center of
Paris, are disappearing. Old resorts
are being obliterated to make room
tor the pretentious upstart, modern
buildings that are now so apparent In
tbis section of Paris, so dear to the
i ne eal Bullier.
hearts of tho artists for generations
past. Old mansions with quaint and
charming facades, old houses which
are surrounded by happy memories of
once noted men, fragments of his
tory all are quietly vanishing from
sight under tho stern hand of prog
ress. The Bullier was above all others
the ball of the students.
Through Its vast doors passed many
generations. Grave and dignified doc
tors, famous lawyers, celebrated art
ists uud inspired poets did not disdain
to give themselves to the joyous en
tertainments of this dancing hall dur
ing their student days in Paris. Tho
erratic and fastidious Whistler, Dou

llviriff monuments, have all partici
pated In the gayeties that occurred
weekly at this brilliant dancing hall,
where tho little grlsettes, the pretty,
taucy models and the dainty little sew
ing girls created an atmosphere of
light-hearted beauty and effervescent
youth the period where dull care has
no foothold.
Tho' Hal noullier has outlived the fa

then unknown students, gathered for

Henry V and Catherine of France
. tiuiijnuUI bjr
A reckless, daredevil boy chanced to
meet and to fall in love with a half
starved, ill-dressed girl about live hun
dred years ago. Because the boy hap
pened to be a prince nnd the girl a
princess that same love affair led to a
series of terrible wars and to the con
quering nnd final losing of a great na
tion. The boy was "Mad Prime Hal,"
son of King Henry IV. of England.
The girl was Princess Catherine,
daughter of insane King Charles of
France. I'nlike most royal mar
riages, theirs was a genuin love
match. Nor did "the course of true
love" rim smooth.
"Mad Prince Hals" wild pranks had
led the English to tremble for their
kingdom's welfare in the event of his
coming to the throne. Yet when, In
HI It, he succeeded bis father as king,
he sobered down as by maRle and
proved himself a wise, able ruler. Al
most his first act after becoming King
Henry V. was to ask the hand of
Princess Catherine in mariiaee. He
had seen but little of the princess; yet
lie had learned to love her, and he
sent for her at once to share his
crown, lint by his counsellors' advice

lie could not have chosen a better
time for bis attack. The kinir nf
Fiance was insane (playing cards are
said to have been invented to amuse
this crazy monarch), nnd the kingdom
was rent by two waning factions.

The girl with the double set of thumbs

King Henry VIII. of England.
Henry wns great grandson of Owen
Tudor. He found England a third-
rate European power. By his personal
genius nnd statecraft he made it one
of the foremost nntions of the earth.
As a mere boy he had been married, for
reasons of state, to his elder brother's
willow, Catherine of Aragon. She was
many years older than he, and was
an Invalid and of a melancholy, pious
nature. Henry was athletic, jolly nnd
not much given to piety. There wns
nothing about such a woman as Cath
erine to interest him. Moreover, they
had no living children except one sick
ly daughter, Mary. And Henry longed
for a son to carry on his fame. Yet he
would probably have remained true to
Catherine to the end of her days If he
had not chanced to meet Anne Boleyn.
A W'lv Anne was one of
"Maid tf Honor." Cfnt,H;r,ne'B maJdH
of honor. She
managed to attract Henry's attention
and started a violent flirtation with
him. That she at first dared expect
the affair to go further is doubtful.
Hut Henry, who hitherto had paid lit
tle heed to such temptntions, fell vio
lently in love with her. She had the
beauty, youth and gayety his wife
lacked. Anno quite easily won him
from the poor, gentle old queen. The
latter had no charms wherewith to
combat tho younger woman's art.
As soon as she saw Henry was seri
ously interested In her Anne set all
her wits to work to make herself
queen. The upshot of the matter was
that Henry decided to get rid of Cath
erine of Aragon. But this was not
easily done. The Catholic church did
not recognize divorce. Moreover,
Catherine's nephew, Charles V. of
Germany, was too powerful a sov
ereign for the pope to offend. Henry
solved the problem by wrenching Eng
land away from Its Catholic allegiance
and proclaiming himself the head of
the English church. In this new ca
pacity he arranged that tho marriage
with his brother's widow be pro
nounced null and void. Then, freed
from Catherine, he at once married
Anne. The wedding occurred early In
1333. Anne, who had earlier received
from the king the title of countess of
Pembroke, was solemnly crowned
queen of England.
Her ambition was at last gratified.
She had turned Henry's heart from
his faithful old wife nnd had raised
herself to the highest position In the
lund. Incidentally, she had changed

It was largely on account of this 19-year-old
glii that France, In lli:. was
Invaded by an English army. Henry
swept all before him. The French op
posed him at Afiliicourt and are said
to have outnumbered his army by ton
(o one. Yet he won a great victor',
crushing tho national pride of France.
A second Invasion ended even moro
triumphantly. The French, utterly
overwhelmed, begged for pence. The
terms HenryTtranted were unheard of
In their exorbitance. First and fore
most he demanded the hand of Cath
erine. Then he compelled his beaten
foes to agree that he should succeed
crazy King Charles at the hitter's
death as ruler of France. In tho
meantime he was to govern the realm
as regent.
Ho married Catherine and took her
back to England with him in triumph.
Her fatherland's fall was the price of
her hand. And her husband had
brought about that fall. She and
Henry were married, and early in
1421 she was crowned queen of Eng
land. The next December the couple's

horn. Few children have started life
with such prospects. For he was heir
to the combined thrones of France
and England. A few mouths later
Henry V. nnd Catherine went again to
France. There, when only 35 years
old, Henry died. Catherine brought
her little son hack to England. There,
on crazy King Charles' death, the boy
was crowned, while still in his cradle,
king of England and of France. But
he lacked his father's genius nnd In
herlled some of his grandfather's, old
King Charles', Insanity. As a result,
he was destined to lose both kingdoms
and to die In prison.
Catherine, though she had apparent
ly returned her husband's adoring
love, was quickly consoled for his
death. She secretly married a Welsh
man, Owen Tudor. Tho anger of the
court over this marriage caused her.
to pine away and die nt the age of 3(5.
She and Owen Tudor had two sons.
The elder of these (the earl of Rich
mond) became later the father of
Henry VII., who founded the Tudor
line of kings In England.
Anne Boleyn
England's creed, nnd In so doing start
ed an almost endless chnln of religious
persecution, murders, executions,, etc.
Not that this troubled her nt all. For
three years she and Henry governed
England together. They had one
daughter, Elizabeth, who was destined
one day to become her country's great
est queen. Anne herself showed little
gift for ruling.
. At the end of three yenrs Henry's
fickle fancy wandered from Anne to
one of her young maids of honor, Jane
Seymour. Here retribution set in.
Anno was made to pay bitterly for her
past misdeeds. As she, while maid of
honor, had stolen Henry's love from
his first wife, so now the younger,
prettier Jane Seymour won Henry
from Anne, and by much the same
methods. Henry, infatuated with Jane,
discovered he was heartily tired of
Anne. Those double thumbs at last
began to outweigh her good looks. He
sought some plausible way to get rid
of her. Courtiers helped- him nut liv
trumping up accusations against Anne.
Among other crimes she wns accused
of treason. There is no renson for be
lieving her guilty on nny of tho
charges. But she
