LONDON, Nov. 14. Among the most In
teresting books published In lndon this
year must bp countt-rt "The Autobiography
of Albert Pell." Tills "Tine fid English
gentleman," na lie Is well called In the
intoduotlon of Ms own story of Ills life,
was one of the last of a fine type of men.
The most serious part of Mr. Fell's life
was devoted to the reform of the English
poor law and to tlie general uplifting end
Improvement of the condition, morally,
socially and politically, of the English
grlcultural laborer. Kor seventeen ye.irs
In the House of Commons and throughout
a long life, out of It he devoted himself
to this cause with unflagging energy and
dogged determination. A quotation from
his epitaph in the church at Jlaxelbeach
inay well serve as an Introduction to him:
"Eldest son of Sir Albert Pell, Knt., and of
Honble, Margaret Ixtltia Matilda, daugh
ter and co-heir of the l.'Ui Baron St. John'
of Bletsoe. Born March 12, 1SJ0, educated
under Dr. Arnold, at Itugby, M. A. and
D. of the I'nlversity of Cambridge,
M. r. for South Leicestershire l',8-18Si. Of
long experience as a guardian of tho poor
In ixindon and in the country, he con
demned poor law relief as Inconsistent with
real beneficence and ud verso to the best
Interests of the poor. Honest In purpose,
fearing no man, he served his generation
by the will of Clod, and died April 7. 1907."

It would be Imp-jsslblo to read Albert
Pell's: story of his life without being In
terested In and Insrtructed by his accounts
of bin work In connection with the poor
law. But for the general reader perhaps,
his reminiscences of a day now long gone,
jf famous men und women, und his pic
tures of English country life will prove of
greatest Interest. Writing after he had
passed his 86th birthday, with a mind and
memory untouched by years, he could look
back to a period which" to those of a
younger generation seem almost as strange
(tnd fur away as tho middle ages, yet then
are men still living who can remember
"My grandfather," lie writes, "was living
in the reign of George I. George 111 was
alive In the year of my birth. I was at my
mother's breast when Thlstlewood, the
Cuto street conspirator, whs hanged, and
more than a year old when the great Na
poleon died at St. Helena.

nurse held It bp over his head In the face

"Se this and bear my prophecy. Before

English Milage life.
Here is a picture of English village life
about 1M4. Tho village was Pinner, near
which was the Pells country home, from
the lawn of which In October. young
Albert Pell saw the houses of Parliament
"At the bottom of the village was a slow,
muddy stream, on the other side of which
was the workhouse. Thither I was taken
on many a Sunday morning by my in
dignant fathor. who Immediately has
tened through the hall to a door opening
on to a walk that bordered the whole
length of the building.
"Along this walk stretched for some
yArds an Iron yard, fastened to the wall
at either end. On this rod ran an Iron
ring, with a short chain and shackle. To
this shackle the village Idiot was fastened
by bis ankle, and so, passing from
left to right and right to left In the blazing
sun or the bitter wind, took his exercise
and wore away h's life, plnolng me for
a minute or so In front of this exhibition,
my father Ifi a very solemn tone said:
" 'This sort of thing must be altered.
If It Is not done In my lifetime, mind you,
help to do It In yours.' " And Pell, in later
days. In seventeen years' work on the Met
ropolitan Asylum board, did not forget.
School Day and Hnghy.
Pell went to Ilugby school, of which
the famous Lr., Arnold was then head
master, at tho age of 12. Very Interesting
are his accounts of his early school days,
but too discursive for treatment here.
Notably good Is a description of a drive
to London in the royal mail cart when
the Rugby fled home from cholera which
had reached the neighborhood.
One of his school fellows was Ilnghcs,
the author of the immortal "Tom Brown's
Schooldays." Pell says that Hughes' pic
ture of life at Itugby was so complete that
he had little or nothing to add to it.
But here he does himself an Injustice.
His pages dealing with Itugby will be of
deepest Interest to any reader of "Tom
1 'town's Schooldays."
This Is how "Flckwlck" came to the bys
of Itugby. "Boa was coming Into repute.
In a shoit time the fame of a story by Boz
reached Rugby, and I heard people talking
of "Pickwick," which was then coming out
In monthly numbers. There was a boy in
'our house,' to whom his father sent the
current numbers of the "The Pickwick Pa
pers fresh from the press. This was treas
ure trove. In which wo resolved that all
should be partners.
"There was a two-horse coach, the Pig
and Whistle the day on which the new
number of 'Pickwick' would be on the
road was ascertained. Us arrival was
watched, and on the precious print being
handed to Its owner ho was accompanied
by an eager escort up the town and along

slept at Woburn abbey in order to cross

one In front and one behind, as ag escort.

One of the first well known men that
Pell met as a small boy was. Wllbexforre,
who used to stop with his father In the
If 'iintry. He remembers coming In to des
sert, "or possibly earlier In the meal, as
the tablecloth was still on the table. Wll
berforce was not sitting square to the
tHble, but bad one elbow on It. Hnd the
olher band whs crumbling some overdone

Pell's older friends was a Yorkshire doc

as many sheets as the number consisted of.
"The first page, together with tho Illus
trations, was handed, with Just considera
tion, to its owner. As soon as the first
page had been read It was passed on to a
senior boy, who commenced his study of it,
while the second page wjs passed to the
original proprietor; and so In the course
of twenty minutes quite a group of boys
were all devouring "Pickwick' peacemeal.
In deep silence, broken even' now and
then by bursts of laughter. I was small
and Uius had my patience sorely tiled in
w aiting my turn, which sometimes, did not
come, till a night had passed away."
Foot Ball at Cambridge.
At the age of 18 Pell entered Trinity
college, Cambridge. Koot ball was then
unknown at Cambridge. Pell Introduced it.
"Rugby,"" he writes, "was famous for tne
game, and when I left It was considered
that the school field had lost a rather dis
tinguished player. I loved the rough game
as much -.as or more than cricket and
missed Its excitement and conflict sadly.
It seemed that there were other outcasts
like myself. Some too heavy to hunt or
row, some too poor, some who, not having
been at public schools, were fretting life
away In constitutionals. .An Inspiration
reached me that there was here an op
portunity for getting up foot ball."
It was 8aiil that such a proposal could
not lie entertained among men; beys might
hack each other's shins and cling like leop
ards to the no. ks of their opponents with
out offense, but not so university men.

Farming a Primitive I'rurma.
After Cambridge Tell took a farm In tlvt
Harrow Vale, twelve miles from London.
Tliis Keems a strange ileturo of farming,
only twelve lulled from Indon upn ground
now well built over, to be written by a
man wlio died la.t year:
"Tlie Btuplc product was hay for tiro
Ind"n market, but there were about
twelve aores of lmervloUH clay under the
plough, producing a modest yield of the
fined wheat in the kingdom for flour. The
ploughing was done by a wooden plough.
with wooden b east, drawn by three horsi s ;
at length. Tlie seed was p iwn broadcast.
Threshing was dono by the flail. Tlie
dressing of the grain was much as it had
been in Saxon times.
"The whole oKratlon was a tedious and
expensive one. 1 think the threshing alone
cost 5 shillings a quarter of eight bushels,
ant probably the dressing up IS peine more.
Tlie machinery or implements employed
might have been bought fur ) or rJ nidi
lings. '"The thresher made his ewn flail. Tim
was kept and marked in a p.imitive way.
A crack in the barn doois when these were
set back admitted a beam of sunlight on
the jamb; across this notches were cut with
a knife at different distances. When tlie
fuil ray reached one mark it was luncheon
time; another illumination on a lower mark
indicated dinner time."
Memories o( Merrle Knalaiid.

Here is a picture of haymaking on his

from Iiindon, which shows Pell, who
makes no pretense to fine writing, at ids

"The hay was mad" in b more careful
and studied fashion than nowadays. No
machines rattled In the meadows, aor was
mechanical assistance called In at the
building of the rick. At first nut even
a hand drag was in use.
"Karly, very early In the morning, while
the dew Wetted tlie grass, the strong,
enduring mower entered the f i. Id. He
took a sup of ale from his wooden bottle
and then charmed the still, misty air
with the music of the whetstone on I. Is
scythe. The patient team rested mean
while and gathered flesh and strength
undisturbed against the day of the hay
cart. No such rest now; out of the mo
notonous culler they are yoked into the
horse rake, out of tlie horse rake into the
1'rorriilus of the Mowers.

their acythes whetted, the leading men
of the gang swept down with a swish the
first swaths. The next followed, and so

and straps buckled round their middles

in patriarchal hobnail laced bxts.
j 'This powerful and sjiuewhat aoleuin
procession, with lep.s apart, was carried
Irresistibly forward till the edge was taken
off the blade and a halt was called for
whetting. Then up went the glittering
bUdes in tlie air, a lock of grass was
picked fi'e.in the ground to wipe them,

daisies, lady's smocks and meadow grasses.
"Mean winle tlie sun rolled up on the
horizon or over the wood, higher and
higher, and the djizzling light and summer
heat cleared away tho moist dew. Tho
'cut' became dry and harsh, the whet
stones and the bdlles came ill more fre
quent reipiest and anxious glances were
directed toward the gate or stile In the
hedge. At last, but still due to lime, the
wife or the child appeared with basket
and breakfast or 'nunch' and all ad

"Very few words were spoken, but the
clasp knives came out of tlie pockets and
were soon at work on cold bacon, bread

Then an hour's more work, and then be

again, well Into the shades of evening.

a Cambridgeshire farm:
"In the early summer the sheep were
washed In the river; a few weeks later
those bipeds who had had the call re
ceived, their Haptist dipping at the same
convenient spot. Tills was an important
event of which due notle-o was given. On
one occasion the engineer of a large fen
pumping engine lower down tstream was
observed to be engaged In carrying a
supply of water indoors. On being asked
the meaning of tills very singular operation
ho saiel with a serious face:
" "There's to be a dipping tomorrow and
my missis don't intend to drink all their
sins as may drift down here." "
Mr. Pell was a great drinker of milk, a
famous physician having once told him
that the life of a man who could drink
milk was worth ten times more than that
of a man who could r.ot. A glass of milk,
however, once lost him a vote In a parlia

Into the house a'nd greeted Mr. Pell with a
violent handshake and the boisterous In

Mr. Pell said: "Mr. Smith I am much
obliged to you for giving me the choice. A3
I have no doubt you brought the pall into
the house. 1 should like above every thing,
except the promise of your vote, a mug of
milk." "Oh!" he exclaimed, "You are very
welcome, but I'm damned If I vote for a
man who drinks milk."

Hut though a believer in milk as a bever
age, Mr. Pell, as was only fitting for an
old-fashioned Tory country gentleman,
knew and appreciated the beauties of port.
"Port wine," he says, "is the only wine

An interesting pasiage gives a good idea
eif how lietrary treasures ol almost price
less value have been lost and found ill old
English mansion. Sir Charles Ishani, an
old school fellow of Pell, determined tJ
have his libiary catalogued.
"It contained," a) a Pell, "the usual col
lection of Urillsh and oilier classics in
folios and quartos of very re seclank- dates
no modern books from Sir Waller Scolt
downward, and I never saw a single volume
froLi those shelves in the hands of any
rei.der. Toe representative of a Iundun
firm was engaged off and on for some
I yea is at the work.
"At last it was completed, and Mr. Eu
munds took his seat at the luncheon table
before lraving for Indon. As there were
some minute to spare afterward Lady
lsham said to him:
" 'UU, Mr. Edmunds, there are upstairs
in an attic In a chest of drawers soroa old
books waste paper, In fact; perhaps you
would just have a look n,t them.'
"I'pstalrs Mr. Edmunds went and In
about ten minutes came down with a small
book or booklet bound in old limp vellum,
with leather strings Instead of a clasp to
keep its pages loose. Holding It up, he

"In a few days came a note from bis
employers offering Sir Charles 7 for this

Sir Charles said lie did not want to sell
books. So this one was returned, and
shortly after Mr. Edmunds paid anothet
visit to examine thoroughly the other cc n-
tentsi of the attic. Then came revelations.
"The "Venue and Adonis' was the edition
of ISM, perfect In every' respect, and so
far unique. In the library of Trinity col
lege, Cambridge, I have seen another copy
of the same date, but Imperfect. Sir
Charles at Inst was persuaded to sell some

In the same way were Decker's poems and
others of a 'free' character. There were
playbills of Shakespearian time, and sev

volumes were unique. The history of their
scarceness Is that on account of their li
centious tone all these publications hid

to be brought In and burned;
"The lsham of the day, however, who
had seen a good deal of the world, re

of IamiKirt Hall, not wholly undisturbed
for there was a Kettering bookselle-r who
yearly bought up waste paper for grocers'
packages, anil, in his spring rounds, he
was sent upstairs to bring down and puy
for what he wanted. It was the small size
of the sheets of 'Venus and Adonis' and
other rarities that saved them, for they
were not large enough to 'do up' a pound
of butter, soap or sugar."
Answer to a Heckler.
Mr. Pell was known to favor legislation
obllgln? children to perform duties toward
their parents, which but for the encour
agement given them by the poor law of
that time they would never have thought
of neglecting. On one eccaslon Pell was
asked on the hustings by a heckler
whether he was the man who In his place
in parliament had made tlie law obliging
poor men to maintain their parents.
"No:"' rapped out Mr. Pell In reply;
"that is an older law. It was written by
God Almighty on two tables of stone and
brought diwn by Moses from Mount Sinai,
and as far as I can make out, Thomas, it's
the Hone and not the law that has got Into
your heart." Tho abashed heckler got Ms
answer, and for many a long day was
known as Stony Hearted Thomas.
Perhaps we may add the following: say
ing of Pell abrut Abraham Lincoln, his
"I have often thought how effectively.
If Moses had been out of the way, Lincoln
could have taken his people through th

Miss McWilllams gave no explanation of
her refusal. She simply would not take the
