CastslaKa Interrupted Lecture In the
In "Home Life In Spain" la a fine
story of the University of Madrid,
which once had among Its professora
that Senor Castelar who waa for a
time president of the short lived Span
ish republic. But when Alfonso XII.
was brought to Madrid after the fall
of the republic Castelar, with his com
panions, was exiled.
Some years afterward an amnesty
waa proclaimed, and Castelar returned
la triumph to Madrid to resuma his
office in the university. A rast gather
ing attended to hear his first lecture,
and the greatest orator In all Spain
mounted the rostrum, looked lmper
tnrbably at the sea of eager faces sur
rounding him and began, "As I was
saying yesterday' (Como decla ayer).
Between that yesterday and this
day he had fought the battle of the
faBea republic and had known the bit
teraeas of years In exile. All memory
f tab, however poignant In the heart
of Castelar, had passed from the pro
fessor of Madrid's university, and ha
continued his lecture at the Tory point
at which it had been broken off.

The earliest mention of It In England
occurs in 1581. Early In the following
century the DJke of Buckingham
caused much Indignation by lta use In
London. People were exasperated at
that nobleman employing his fellow
men to take the place of horses to car

Spain in 1623 three curiously wrought
sedans, two of which he gave to the
Duke of Buckingham. A few weeks
after their Introduction Masslnger pro
duced his play, "The Bondman," and

For their pomp and care betas borne
In triumph on man's shoulders.
The reference is doubtless to Buck

a palanquin. "Bygone England."
