tivo ns n pious mnii of raro iutolligouco
who took great interest in tho spiritunl
wclfnio of tho Japanese. Gobol wns ono
of tho earliest mctnbors of what is
known nt tho Newton mission.
Tlio jlnriklHlia is another illustration
of tho old ndngo that necessity is tho
mother of invention, for Brother Gobol
was nlllictcd with rhoumatlsm in his
later years nnd found it difficult to navi
gate Tho hcdnu chair, which was nscd
by tho nobility, was toocloso for him,
and tho kngo, n vchiclo iu which tho
humbler clashes wcro in tlio habit of
carrying tho I111110 and tho lazy, was
very uncomfortable for his long legs, so
ho took a packing enso, painted it black,
ns nppropriato to his dignity, nnd set it
upon n pnir of whcols.
For sholtcr from tho miu ho rigged a
canvas nwulng that could bo rnisod or
lowered according to his convenience,
and ho hired n brawny cooly to haul
hi in about. That wns tho origin of tho
vchiclo which takes tho placo of car
riages and strcot cars in Japan, Korea,
India and China, for Brother Gobol's
invention hns sproad all over tho coast.
So useful nn invoiition nccdod n good

Jonathan Gobol was n muscular Chris

Tho missionary pleadod "guilty, with

Mr. Gobel afterward built himsolf a
modoru house on what is known as tlio
Bluff, south of Yokohama, nud sur
roundod liis grounds with tho first fenco
that was uer built in this part of tho
world. It was mndo of bnmboo pnlings,
and tho boys in tho neighborhood used
to annoy tbo good missionary greatly by
rattling sticks ugainst it as they ran
nlong tho street. Tho British admiral
lived just abuvo him and had a very
natty Tommy Atkins for an orderly.
Ho woro a littlo ronnd cap on tho north
cast corner of his head and nlways car
ried a littlo cano of rattan iu his hand.
Ono morning, hnving boon sent with a

with his face bruised to a jolly and his

Tom Benton occupied for mnny yoara
in fact, until his death n responsible
position in tho household of Qnoen Vic
toria. TJenton, who was of hnmblo birth,
was but a lad at Brighton when his par
ents died within a fow months of each
other. It was shortly after theso events
when tho queen's attention was called

Ono day, whilo Benton was gathering

I vigorous kick, tho nccumtilntod shells,
i Benton gathorcd up his treasures, nnd
placing thorn again inn pilo warned tho
intruder that if ho repented tlio trick ho
would givo him n "good licking."
Tho kick was repented with oven more
vigor than boforo, and tho sholls wcro
sent flying in ovory direction. Truo to
his word, tho "poor boy" soundly
thrashed tlio stranger. It was a oloso
contest nt first, as tho lads wcro quito
ovonly matched, but tho more fully do
volopod strength of Benton flnnllv
brought him off victorious.
Just as tho molco was over n gcntlo
man nnd lady approached, and tho for

man. Wo havo seen tho wholo transac
tion. Tills boy iu our son, but ho was
tho aggressor and roccivod tho thrashing

tions woro asked tlio lad as to himsolf
and his family. Tho replies told tho
boy's lifo, how tho donth of his parents
had brought poverty to himsolf and his
brothers nud sisters.
"This is tho queen," said tho gcntlo
man, who was nono other than Princo
Albort, "nnd tho young man to whom
you administered such a morited whip
ping is tho Princo of Wales. " Turning
to tho princo, ho continued: "You must
scud his young man to school and pay
for his tuition out of your own pocket
money. That cannot add to your punish

whom you pickod such nn nncallcd for
Thus it was that Tom Benton met tho
queen of England. Ho was sent to a
school about midway between Portland
and Dover. After completing his studies
tlioro ho was taken into her majesty's
fccrvico nnd. remained there his entire
lifo. Between Benton and tho Princo of
Wales there was a strong bond of friend
