Queen Anne was once surrounded by
a host of gayly dressed courtiers, and
in the throng was an old man of 83,
wearing the plain dress of a country

Earl Cailogan's Immense Estate.
Some idea of Earl Cadogan’s wealth

house. Shortly after this he presented
an extensive site in Chelsea, known
as Blocklands, to the Guinness trust,
for the erection of workmen's dwel

Brltlah “Contrli.nct> Money,'*
"Conscience money” in Great Britain
now amounts to thousands of pounds
annually. The first sum noticed was
on March 30, 1789, when £360 was car
ried to the public account In conse
quence of a note received by the chan
cellor. The writer with troubled soul
Implored him, "as an honest man, to
consider the money the property of the
nation, and to be so just as to apply
It to the use of the state in such man
ner that the nation may not suffer by
its having been detained, and thus to
ease the conscience of an honest man.”
Banking In Canada.
The banking business In Canada la
on a different plan from that In this
country. The headquarters of most of
the banks throughout the Dominion Is
in Ontario, either at Hamilton, King
ston or Toronto. Each bank has Its
central office, generally in one of the
cities named, and as many branches as
it cares to maintain in different parts
of Canada, some of these branches be
ing as far distant as Dawson.
Mr. S. A. Harris, a grocer of Char
lotte, has lost a mule and the better
part of a delivery wagon. The wagon
body was made of poplar. The mule
was made of Just simply ordinary
every-day mule. Tuesday night the
mule got out of the stable and set
about a task of eating up the deliv
ery wagon. He ate the frame work to
the floor and might have finished the
floor if he hadn’t stopped long enough
to die. Mr. Cam King, one of the orig
inal Two Orphans, was at the old
Courthouse when he overheard Squire
Maxwell telling an Observer reporter
about the death of Sam Harris' mule.
“1 believe every word of It," spoke up
King, "and I will tell you why. Mules
will eat wood when they are wanting
forage and can’t get It (meaning no
reflection on Sam). At Staunton, Va.f
during the war, I was in charge of the
commissary wagons. We had plenty
of corn for our mules, but for days
they had no forage whatever. Well,
one night my mule ate out five spokes
from a wagon wheel to which they
had been tied. That morning I got a
load of chestnut rails to feed my
mules on and they ate every one of
them. Not .a mule died. What caused
the death of Mr. Harris’ mule I can’t
say, but I do know that my army
mules were great wood eaters."—
