Mow tho Scandinavian Dramatist
ImnrcHMcd an Observer
William Archer tolls how llenrlk lb
sen impressed him when he met the
Scandinavian dramatist in Rome In
18S1 In glided an undersized man
with very broad shoulders and a large
leonine head wearing a long black
frock coat with very broad lapels on
one of which a knot of red ribbon was
conspicuous I knew him at once but
was a little taken aback by his low
stature Ills natural height was even
somewhat diminished by a habit of
bending forward slightly from the
waist begotten no doubt of short
sightedness and the need to peer Into
He moved very slowly and noise
lessly with his hands behind his back
an unobtrusive personality But
there was nothing insignificant about
the high and massive forehead crown
ed with a mane of then Iron graj
hair the small and pale but piercing
eyes behind the gold rimmed specta
cles or the thin lipped mouth depress
ed at the corners into a curve indica
tive of iron will and set between bushy
whiskers of the same dark gray as the
The most cursory observer could
not but recognize power and character
in the head yet one would scarcely
have guessed it to be the power of a
port the character of a prophet One
would rather have supposed ones self

This Mediterranean of the west is
surrounded by countries of extraordi
nary richness in the fertility of their
soil the geniality of their climates
the vastness and value of their for
ests and the variety and extent of
their mineral endowments
All these countries capable of sus
taining hundreds of millions of people
are inhabited by nations and races
who live under republican forms of
government and cherish and maintain
free institutions The northern coast
line of this important sea is in the
great republic of the United States of
North America The southern half is
in the next greatest American repub
lic that of Mexico while on the east
are the important islands of the West
Indies with Cuba at their head The
region around this most important sea
is destined to be far richer more pow
erful and more distinguished in the
history and affairs of our globe than
were ever those that bordered the
ancient Mediterranean of the eastern
hemisphere not even excepting Egypt

St Alban and His Teacher
By some strange irony St Alban
the martyred but possibly mythical
Roman soldier whose festival falls
on June 22 has quite overshadowed
his probably historic instructor St
Amphibalus whose anniversary comes
on the following day About Am
phibalus we know that he was a na
tive of Caerleon Ahich the golden
legend expresses by dubbing him a
princes son of Wales in grete araye
He was buried at Redbourne but
translated to St Albans abbey
where his cup was preserved which
they of the common sort call St Affa
belle Bolle In former times children
were frequently christened with his
name and Affabell Partridge was gold
smith to Queen Elizabeth Westmin

Dunkirks Fete of Lanterns
One of the quaintest of the numer
ous yearly fetes still in honor at Dun
kirk is the fete of lanterns instituted
many hundreds of years ago in honor
of St Martin bishop of Tours who
died in 39G and who was one of the
prelates by whose efforts the early in
habitants of these parts were convert
ed to Christianity As soon as dusk
sets In the celebration commences and
all the urchins of the town congregate
iu the main thoroughfares Each one
bears a paper lantern some of which
are of considerable proportions being
shaped in the form of a ship or a
flower With lanterns in hand and
blowing lustily on horns and trum
pets the crowd of youngsters parades
the streets London News

The flocks of llamas belonged to the
sun and the Inca It was death to
kill one At certain seasons of the
year they were collected from the hills
and shorn Large numbers were sent
to supply food for the court and to be
used at the religious festivals and sac
rifices Male Hamas only were killed
The wool belonged to the Inca and
was stored in the government deposi
tories and dealt out according as the
i peoples wants required In this way
they were provided with warm- cloth
ing When they had worked up enough
wool into clothing for themselves they
were then employed in working up
material for the Inca The distribu
tion of the wool and superintendence
of Its manufacture were in the hands
of oilicers appointed for the purpose
No one was allowed to be idle Idle
ness was a crime and was severely
All the mines belonged to the Inca
and were worked for his benefit The
various employments were usually in
the hands of a few and became heredi
tary What the father was that the
sou became A great part of the agri
cultural products was stored in grana
ries scattered up and down the coun
try and was dealt out to the people as
required It will thus be seen that
there was no chance for a man to be
come rich neither could he become
poor The spirit of speculation had no
existence there Chambers Journal
A Clever Scheme That AVn Spoiled
In the Dr u wing
Two young men iu a French village
were called on to draw for conscrip
tion One oIy was wanted to complete
the number and of the two who were
to draw one was the sou of a rich farm
er and the other the child of a poor
The farmer ingratiated himself with
the superintendent of the ballot and
promised him a present if he could find
means to prevent his son from going
in the army In order to accomplish
this the official put into the urn two
black balls instead of one white and
one black ball When the young men
camo he said
There are two balls one black and
one white in the urn He who draws
the black one must serve Your turn
is first pointing to the widows son
The latter suspecting that all was
not fair approached the urn and drew
one of the balls which he immediately
swallowed without looking at it
Why said the superintendent
have you done that now are we to
know whether you have drawn a black
or a white ball
Oh thats very easy to discover
was the reply Let the other now
draw If I have the black he must
necessarily draw the white one
There was no help for it and the
farmers son putting his hand into the
urn drew the remaining ball which to
the satisfaction of the spectators was
a black one

strife of wedded bliss for some years

paucity of worldly goods with which
she had endowed him
