In the oMm days tha lords of the land
were required to make service or payment
for their holding which may have had
valuH In those daya. but which are de
cidedly old In tha twentieth cwitury. Fre
quently the fart that these payments are
mad la noted In the press. For example,
by order of the duke of BuoeleiP-h a no

to attend at Knlghtlow Hill before sunrise

The custom ta on of tha most quaint In

being tha legal due as quit rem for certain
lands. It Is nice to think that the king
Is sure of one good, comfortable fire dur
ing the coming winter, anyhow.
Other similar "payments In kind" to
which hie majesty Is entitled. If lie care
to assert his rights, are an annual bowl
f porridge from the lord ef the manor ef
Addlngton. a bucketful of taow from the
owner of the Foulis estate In Scotland and
a garland of rosf-s from the owner of
Crendon, In Buckinghamshire. These
things, however, would not amalgamate
well, especially the snow and the rosea
Perhaps that la why his majesty never In.
slsts upon having them. He Is also en
titled, should he visit Aylesbury In the win
ter, to call upon ths owner of certain
lands to furnish straw for his bed and else
for the floor of his room. Even these at
tractions, however, do not entice tha king
to Wait Aylesbury often In the winter.
Wmt Aa Ler4 Mtrori,
It la not generally known that women
can and do fill the office of lady mayor
f British municipalities.
Oldham, the great Lancashire cotton
ptnulng center, will tn all probability have
a lady mayor In the corning year, as It
ha been decided to ask Mrs. Lees of
Merneth Park to accept the office.
She will be the second lady mayor in
English history, the first being Mrs. Gar
rett Anderson, mayor of Aldeburgh In Suf
folk. It was only in 1K8 that women were
allowed, by the qualification of the women
bill, to sit on county and borough coun
cils. Mrs. Lees, who has been a member ef
the council for two years. Is known locally
aa the "Lady Bountiful,' having given
very generous support to the various In
stitution of tha town, and ha purchased
for tha corporation large plots of land,
which have been laid out a recreation
round. ahe was recently given the free
dom, of the borough.
The lady mayor of Aldeburgh, by the
way., after two year of office, has e.
pressed her wish not to be again elected,
and also her desire to retire from tb
town council, owing to advancing years
and. har numerous other engagements.

1 hear that the little Irish play by John
Bedreoade daughter, which Is shortly to
be produced at tha Palace theater, la shap
ing promisingly at rehearsal and look
like being a notable success.
Mia Johanna Redmond is only 33, hut
she ha already made her mark a an
authoress, having written a Dumber of
stories which, have won considerable popu
larity ta Ireland. Nor la ah altogether
new to the footlights, for a one-act play
of her own made a hit at the Court
theater a coupla of years ago. The heroine
In that piece was capitally played by her
sister, Esther, who recently married a New
Tork doctor. Next to authorship. Miss
Redmond's favorite dlvrston is horse-rid-tng,
and she I often seen taking a canter
In the Row with her father and mother.
The Irish leader has been married twice,
and is a happy grandfather devoted to
home and children. HI first wife was an
Australian heiress, who died, leaving him
with two daughters and a sou.
Young Redmond is at the Royal uni
versity. Publln, studying for the Irish bar.
He is remarkably like his father, even to
the smallest mannerisms of speech and ges
ture. I hear great account of his Intel
lectual brilliancy, and am told that hi
professors prophesy for him a distinguished

week I ran up against him at
well known second hand dealer in the
'West End. where he was Inspecting a
number of Old English chairs and tables.
Probably the young assistant attending
to him marvelled at the time at the extra
ordinary knowledge his customer displayed
tn regard to the subject. During the whole
time Kitchener scarcely spoke at all; he
imply turned over each article that was
shown him, minutely examined it. and with
a curt "That will do," or "I wont have
that" transacted his business; and hastily
writing some instructions on his card.

left the shop as though he had never a
moment to spar.

It Is generally reported in court and
diplomatic circles, both at home and
abroad that Queen Alexandra la anx
ious for King George to sanction a new
code of precedence, which would place her
on an official equality with the Queen Con
sort. Thla is an unheard of arrangement
In western Europe, but It exist In Russia
' where the empress mother is legally the
moet powerful member of the Imperial
family after the csar himself.
The report has been circulated all over
Europe, and it lias caused much gossip at

Omaha High School reKlnient of cadets,
which Is the highest ranking cadet office.
A far a his ability to lead hi class
through a prosperous year, no one doubt
It. Loa Howard as vice president Is con
sidered very capable for the position that
he holds. She ha been the leader of the
girls In the ticket selling contests and has
led them to vlatory. Marthena Moore was
chosen to write the minutes and to keep
the record a She 1 second to none In her
ability to do this. The banker of the class
ia Leonard Marshall. ll will handle all
the money and no one dispute hi capa
bility to do so. A ergeant-at-artns,
Donald How and Bernlce Border were
chosen. Although this office Is not one of
great responsibility, It 1 one that involve
tactfulness. Tbese two are considered en
tirely able to hold it. Every senior has ex
pressed him or herself to be entirely satis
fied with the outcome of thi election and
Is looking forward to a very successful
year under the leadership of the officers.
The results of the vote were a follow:
President: Rector, 108; Ellsworth. 70. Vic

Every year the senior class of the Omaha
High ochool give n entertainment of some
kind for which a small admission fee la
chsrged. Th money made In thl way Is
put together and with It is bought some
ornament which la left In the school. In
1906 and 1909 the senior class gave a senior
fair. This consisted of about ten show
in which the senior took part. With th
money made the 1908 class purchased a
ailver loving cup for athletic. Th 1809
class bought many pictures and statues.
Laat year the senior das gave an Ameri

from which will be used to buy some bronze
tablets. This year the sonlor class Intend
to outclass tha former classes In some way
though no plan ha yet been hit upon. At
the next meeting of the class, a sen or coun
cil will be appointed. It will consist of th
elass officers, and three boy and three
girls appointed by the chair. This council
will meet regularly and decide upon th
questions to be submitted to th class.
