Only on one occasion h.is a British
force offered toriiw amounting to Hiir
render before the eommcneeni'iit of an
net Ion, but this 1.4 what the Black
Prince fell himself ohliged to do by the
overwhelming forces of the French be
fore the battle of Poltleis. So certain
did he consldei defeat to be that he
actually offered to give up all the plun
der he had taken, disband the greater
part of hla force and give an under
taking not to fight agaln.it the French
for seven years, and so coulldent were
the French that they refused thew
tonus. The result was one of fl'.- u,'t
brilliant victories that adorn im Brit
In 1110 lorn times the victory of An
buern. In the peninsular war, Is another
Instance of apparent defeat being turn
ed Into victory. After the charge of the
Freii'Ii hua.-ai-.i and Polish lancers all
seemed lod. Ammunition wan falling,
a deep gully prevented the use of ih,'
bayoin-t, and Berosford wa-i preparing

Ifardii.ge .-avod the day. The battle,
which la:bd only four hours, was the
scene of terrible carnage, and when it
was over the so far victorious French
were driven headlong down the hill, on
th' summit of which 1,50(1 unwouuded
men. the remnant of 7,500 unconquer
able British soldiers, stood triumphant.
Women Iluvu Often Koiif-lit In Ile
fcnM of Their Xutlw Towim,
During the oppression of the Nether
lands by the Spaniards In the sixteenth
century It was no uncommon event for
women to fight In defense of their na
tive town. When in 1572 Don Frederic
at the head of n large army besieged
Hanrlem, among tho garrison that de
feuded the town were 300 women.
Their chief was a widow of distin
guished family, about forty-seven years
of age, who, at the head of her ama
zons, participated In many of the most
fiercely contested actions of the siege.
Seven years later, at the siege of
Maestrlcht, tho women were of great
assistance In making mines, enrolling
themselves into companies under tho
direction of officers, or "mine mis
tresses," as they were called. The serv
ice they rendered was inestimable.
At the repulse of the Spaniards from
tho wnlls of Alkmaar women and even
children showed a like courage, assist
ing tholr husbands aud fathers In the
desperate defense. History, Indeed,
gives many examples of such heroism,
among which may be mentioned the
brave conduct of the women at tho de
feline of Sarragossa In 1808, when they
took the place of their slain husbands
or brothers at the camion side. Black
BEGGARS IN ITALY.
Their Game Secmn to De a Pretty
Ilnril One to Heat.
It Is hard to beat the beggar game in
Italy. A fleet footed urchin and his
maiden fell into a fox trot by the side
of the carriage.
"Look, noble gentleman," he began;
"look, beautiful lady I See the little ra
gazza the poor girl have pity on her!
See, noble slgnor you cannot refuse
to give her something your heart Is
too good you are too generous, too no
ble, too handsome, to refuse. Have pity
on her dreadful state, for look she has
one gray eye and one black one'."
We stopped the carriage. It wns true.
The maiden had indeed particolored
eyes, In addition to which she rejoiced
In a most appalling squint. I gave her
one copper. Hereupon her escort set
up a howl at being ignored.
"But why should you have anything?"
"You ought to give me two coppers,"
he replied, with n twinkle, "for 1 have
two blacks eyes, and she has only one."
I was vanquished. I gave him his
two coppers. I don't believe In beg
gars, but I think he earned them. "A
Levantine I)g Book," by Jerome Hart.
"It pays to bo a mourner In St. Pe
tersburg, nnd there are agencies which
employ great numbers of vagrants and
tramps for the purpose," says a writer.
"These agencies supply suitable cloth
lug nnd pocket handkerchiefs every
thing, In fact, except boots, which the
tramp must show on his feet, or ho
will not be hired. When there Is a
more or loss Important funeral the
tramps gather at the Nlkolskl market
and are selected by an eraployeo of the
agency. Tho wage for the occasion,
with tips, generally equals about 3
shllllugs." London Mail.
