Sir Robert then considered another

ahoold be studied in the following pas

think, to consider naval preponderance

f . , . . . . j our continental neighbors and especial
ly Germany are In the same boat. In
the event of war. If they could not
make up the loss by traffic over their
land frontiers, they would be Just as
liable to suffer from blockade and In
terrupted commerce aa we are. It Is
conceivable, moreover, that In certain
wars some of the countries might not
be able to make up by trade over their
land frontiers for blockade or Interrup
tion of commerce by Be a. I should ap
prehend, for Instance, that Germany, if
It were victorious by sea In a war with
France, would Insist upon Belgium and
Holland on one side and Italy and
Ppato on the other side not supplying
by land to France what had been cut
off by sea. One or more of these coun
ties might be allies of Germany from
"Contrariwise France and Russia, If
at war with Germany and the triple al
liance, might practically seal up Ger
many If they were successful at sea. In
sisting thst the Scandinavian countries
and Holland should aot make up to
Germany by land what had been cut
off by sea. Germany In this view,
apart from any possibility of rupture
with this country, has a case for a
powerful fleet. It Is not quite so much
liable to a blockade as we are, but
there Is a liability of the same kind.
The question of naval preponderance
among rival powers may then become
rather a serious one. If preponderance
Is to be nearly as esser tlal to Germany
as It Is to this country, who la to pre
ponderate? What our practical action
ought to be In the premises is a ques
tion that might easily lead us too far
on occasion like this, but the facts

Nlcolay family emigrated to America,
making their home first in Cincinnati,

During this moving young Nlcolay re
ceived elementary instruction in the
schools of Cincinnati and St. Louis.
His school days In these two cities cov

during that time the lad obtained tui

two languages were taught together.

was about 14 years old young Nlcolay

The Free Press for about eight years,
and while connected with this country
sheet he laid the foundation for his fu

Mr. Nlcolay acquired a reputation as
an editor which lasts even to the pres
ent day in Pike County. He was a
forceful writer and soon became a po
litical power In his part of the state.
He received flattering offers from the
newspapers of Chicago and St. Louis,
but preferred to continue in his Inde

own paper. During tne famous cam

Mr. Nlcolay took sides with Lincoln

which lasted until the tragic death of
At the close of the Fremont and Day
ton campaign In 1856 Mr. Nicolay sold
his paper and became a clerk In the of
flee of the secretary of state at, Spring
field, 111. He remained In this position
until 1860, and during this time his
friendship with Lincoln ripened into
the closest intimacy. When Lincoln
was nominated for the presidency, he
appointed Nlcolay his private secreta
ry. After the election the correspond
ence of Mr. Lincoln increased so much
that an assistant became necessary
and Mr. Nicolay chose for this position
John Hay, the present secretary of
state, who was then a young law stu
dent In Springfield.
When Lincoln made his memorable
Journey to Washington In the spring of
1861, both Mr. Nicolay and Mr. Hay ac
companied him. During the first pres
Idential term they occupied the same
room at the White House together, per
forming the laborious and often dell

formed the plan, with the approval of
Mr. Lincoln, of writing his biography,
which design they carried out later In
After the beginning of his second
term, and shortly before his assassina

lay United States consul at Paris and
appointed Mr. Hay secretary of the
American legation in the, same city.
They had not, however, entered upon
their new duties before Mr. Lincoln's
death occurred. Mr. Nicolay held the
office of consul at Paris until the spring
Mr. Nlcolay and Mr. Hay began the
active work of writing their biography

In addition, to this great task Mr.

the article on President Lincoln In the

In Harper's for October Professor
Flinders-Petri e, the famous archaeolo

recent discovery of valuable Jewels in
the newly opened royal tombs of Aby

"The most surprising discovery of
all," he says, "was that of the gold
Jewelry of the reign of King Zer. While
we were clearing out this royal tomb
workman noticed a piece of the arm of
a mummy lying in a broken hole in the
wall. . He did not pass It by as worth
less, but looked in at one end and saw
a lump of gold. Now, ordinary human
nature, and still more Arab nature,
puts In a finger and hooks out a lump of
gold when It can. But our workmen
are far too well trained to do that, and
so the arm was laid down again till we
could see It. After reporting It the
piece was brought Intact to our huts,
and that evening an hour, or two was
spent in opening It up carefully and re
cording how everything 9 was placed,
lastly weighing the gold and giving the
finder more than its Intrinsic value.
Thus, we safely recovered the oldest
group of Jewelry known In the world.

Zer, about 4700 B. C, some 2.000 years
earlier than any other Jewelry thus faf
"The first bracelet Is formed of alter
nate plaques of gold and turquoise,
each surmounted with the royal hawk
and paneled to imitate the front of the
tomb or palace. This bracelet has a
history in itself. The turquoise plaques
bear a much more archaic and lumpy
form of hawk than the gold pieces, and
they show signs of having been worn
alternately with large beads; From the
style, like that of Mena, they were
made probably at the accession of King
Zer. Later the hawks In gold were
made in the more advanced style to
form a bracelet with the turquoise. All
the pieces were numbered, with lines
on the. bases sloping for one half,
straight for the other half, of the
bracelet Four turquoise and five gold
pieces were lost, and so the eighteen of
each were reduced to the present num
