teacher, "do you know how many dis

London In 1704.
In 1781 M. Lit Combo publlalied n
book entitled "A Picture of London,'
hi which, Inter nlla, he sajs, "Tlio
highroads thirty or forty mi.i round
London nro filled with armed highway
men and footpads." This una then
pretty true, though the expression
"filled" is boniewhat or tin txaggera
Hon. The medlcnl student of fifty or
more years ago seems to have been an
ticipated in 1781, for M. I.n Combe tells
us that "the brass knockers of doors
which cost from 11! shillings to l. sh.i
lings, are stolen at night If the inal.l
forgets to unscrew them." a precaution
which seems to have gone out of Msl.
M. La Combe In another puit or his
book exclaims: "How nro you changed,
Londoners! Your women nro become
bold, Imperious and expensive. Hank
rupts and beggars, coiners, spies and
lufortners, lobbers and pickpockets
abound. Tlio baker mixes nluin In his
btead. The brewer puts ophtti and
copper filling In his beer. The milk
woman spoils her milk with snails."
The Blood Red Banner.
Itoyal and national colors vary with
nations and times, but since Cain slew
Abel blood led has been the sign of le
volt. In tile earliest tevolt known to
history, when the Persians roe against
their Mug -1,000 years ago, they wcio
led by ti blood led banner, and during
the i lots which to k place In Pails the
men In tlie iilooit rod caps were mi
lowed by the mob. A blood red ll.ig
waved over Hunker 1 1 lit when the
Americans rotight for liberty, nnd It
was the emblem or the German peas
ants In their gieat uprisings in 1 11! I.
1 Ib'j nnd 1.VJ3. Wood red was the col
or of tlio trades union flags during the
middle ages, and It framed the back
ground of the emblem of the Swiss
confederacy In 13K". Tlnoiigh the
whole of Prcneh and every other na
tional history those striking In their
own wajs for liberty have worn the
blood red cap and hailed the blood ictl
r banner as their loader. It Is a curious
fact that never has a monarch chosen
It as Ids color. London Answers.
