Herein Is where the English legislator has
distinct advantage over his American
: cousin. He ran enter the commons aa a
mere boy. He does not have to relinquish
Ma -place In the house to accept an admlnis-

Gladstone s great rival. Benjamin Disraeli,
did not get Into the House of Commons
until he waa SS, having been defeated in
several previous trials. At first derided and
hooted, down, he eventually became leader
of the house and was prime minister twloa.
His parliamentary career lasted only forty
four years. .
E. J. Bmlth-Slanley. afterward Lord
Derby, was elected to the House of Com
mons at 21, and was In Paraliament forty
six years continuously. He waa prime
minister three 'times.
Sir Robert Wajpole, to go further afield,
entered the "house at 2S and held various
offices, among them the premiership twice,
the las. lme for twentytwo years con
tinuously, when he resigned and was
created earl of Oxford. Ha was In Parlia

These do not exhaust the list. They are

aft 25 was the most popular snd powerful
minister of modern times, the greatest
tubject that England had seen for many
generations. He resigned In 1801, after
eighteen years of almost absolute power.
He died at 47. This great career of a mere
boy waa no accident. Wlillam Pitt was a

ton. that drove good old 'Squire Walter,
then not ao aged, to such a desperate ex.

that Justice Wslter had to wade through

In order to produce the blight red color of
ths candy, every now and then poured a
few drops of "some deep red stuff" Into
the sweetness. Finally he1 asked ths hoy:
"What Is the stuff that gives ths candy
Its beautiful red color?" He said It was
boiled cochineal. Walter quisled ths boy
until he had ths modus operandi of the
barber's pole candy down perfectly.
"If cochineal gives the candy Us beauti

ward query. And then there was born the
Idea which quickly germinated Into ths full

wonderful new drink, swept across the

They begged, cajoled and finally threatened
him with violence If he would not tell. But
a man who had faced death on the battle
field of Gettysburg on the third day was
not so easily frightened, and then they
'tried bribery, with no better success. Next
day, with a wagon laden with a new sup
ply of red lemonade and other stuff, Mr.
Walter followed the circus and pitched his
tent near the show grounds, as ho had
done tha day before, and ths ruby-colored
drink flowed In streams.
