i 14 Lord French Not To Quit Despite Constant Rumor Lord Lieutenant of Ireland Said to Be Dissatisfied With Lack of Influences Believe He Will Stay. ' Dublin, Nov. 17. The rumors , that Lord French is about to re tire from the office of lord lieutenant , because he is dissatisfied with his lack of influence on policy are re garded in usually' well informed cir cles here as without foundation in fact. His role was definitely set tled several months ago when Sir Hamar Greenwood and General Macready came to Ireland ad no change has since taken place.. When first appointed Lord French was accompanied by Mr. Shortt as chief secretary and, the arrangement was that each should have an equal voice in the adminis tration. When thev differed the dif ference was referred, to the cabinet. Where there was no time to make the reference Lord French's view pfevailcd. This plan did not work wen . . . t ' PJan Was Unworkable.' ( Neither party was satisfied. Each minister- thought he could do .better ' without the other.', Mr. Shortt was sent away to the home office, and Lord French was allowed to i choose a chief secretary not as a ' colleague but as a subordinate and he chose Mr. Macpherson, of whom he had had a favorable experience when Mk, Macpherson was under secretary of war. , -' Lord French is said to have in terferred in "all the details of ad ministration. He tired of the job and welcomed the change which x brought Sir Hamar Greenwood as a real chief secretary directly rep resenting the cabinet, and General Macready to control the armed forces. The three men haves since igot on well, together and the viceroy is understood to be content with a mainly ornamental position which relieves him' from much trou ble. ' - . , Salary Is 20,000. The salary attached to his post is v '20,000 a -year, with various addi , tional allowances, and with some concession in the matter of income tax. Previous viceroys found the sum insufficient and some of them who wer.e wealthy men supplement ed it out of their private means. But then there were levees, drawing rooms, dances and entertainments on a large scale in the castle, all modeled in imitation of the unc tions of the royal court in- London. These have not been resumed iiqce the war which suspended them. and the internments are few and on the modest scale possible in the vicefcgal lodge,' i which is a small houle less extensive than many Irish country mansions. , ,'. - .. Office of Profit . The viceroyalty is thus ' now ah office of considerable profit, and since m the new conditions it is in volving its holder in less labor and anxiety, there is every inducement for him to remain in it. It is a convenience to the gov ernment that Lord French should stay. It would not be easy to find a suitable successor. f Unless, there fore, Lord French's health breaks down a change is considered un likely. 5hou1d a complete reversal take olace in oresent methods of Irish administration and a new policy of conciliation be inaugurated, there would be a change in all the Irish offices. (Three names are mentioned as possible viceroys in that event. ' ' Lord Decies Proposed. Lord Decies, who married Miss Gbul of New York, is constantly spoken of. He is personally very popular with all classes and is a very genial man, typically Irish in hit ways. He would be an orna mental, lord lieutenant of -the old spending 'style. V ; It the lord lieutenant were to , Tiave the real as well as the merely nominal power, Lord Northcliffe is mentioned as a possible choice. An other likely manjs Lord Shaftesbury who made an important speech at the Irish peace conference and whose role would be, while cpncilat ing Irish feeling generally, to se cure the adhesion of Belfast, where he has great interests, If, owing to reasons of health, ' Lord French should go during the continuance of the present regime the most probable successor, is be lieved to be the Marquis of London derry.

By Tha , Wheeler 1 . Syndicate. Inc.) , . ( -., Inasmuch as the pound ster ling was originally referred to by the Latin name libra, it was at first contracted to the letters lib; the usual mark of abbrevia tion, a dash or lineover the letters being used to signify the con tracted form; ' la dotting the "i," a careless or rapid writer would make the dot more or less in the form of a dash or short line. Thus lib. came to have two strokes or dashes one for the abbreviation and one to represent the dot over the "i.V In! the course of time the "i was entirely dropped, and the, contraction became "lb," but the two strokes were retained. This form of abbreviation, however, was found to interfere with the symbol for . the pound weight (lb), which had only one dash to denote the fact that it bad been shortened, so the "b" was omitted where the mack meant pound sterling. The two dashes or strokes' were, however, per petuated and the with its crosses is now known all over the world as the symbol of the English pound sterling. THE GUMPS HOW "WAY OU 6ABBO "THAT SPCW?

But sometimes 'when lie could not find enough of those, or when he wanted a change of food, he would eat almost any sort of berry, and apples and. pears as well. Tomatoes, too, he liked once "What a pity!" He meant it, too in aV while. And he was very fond of sunflower seeds. He would not refuse a fat insect, either, if it flew lib way. But. these we're not the oniy dainties 4hat iSandy thought good. There was something else something to be found m trees for which? Sandy sometimes hunted. And before he came home, after finding what he was locking for, he always wiped his mouth with great care. If you had ever seen hi in wiping his mouth lke that, you might have guessed that Sandy Chipmunk had been eating birds', eggs. And the roason he, was so careful to remove all, signs of his feast was because he did not want his mpther to know vtiat he had been doing. .Now you have heard the Worst there is to 'know about Sandy Chip luiink. To you it may seem odd that Mrs. Chipmunk did not thiak it wrong to rob birds' nests. And now you Know the worst about ner, Sandy's mother liked eggs iist as rrtich as lie did. But her son was such a little "fellow that he was airaid he might get hurt climbing trees and looking for eggs. She told, him tiiat some day some bird might surprise him when he was enjoying a meal of her eggs, and peck out one or two of his eyes. "Keep away from the nests!" Mrs. Chipmunk said. But Smdy had had too many tastes of birds' eggs. He simply couldn't resist eating a few eggs now and hen. Of course, when he did that he disobeyed his mother. And of course, if she had known it she would have .punished him. As' the spring days sped past, the b.rds that Jied in Farmer Green's pacture grew very angry with Sandy ( hipmun!:. You see, it was not long before they discovered who it wa? that was robbing their nests now and then. v "You'd better leave birds', eggs alone 1" , Mr. Crow warned Jlim one cay. "A number of my friends have to(d. me what they're .going to do to you, if they catch yon pear their iitsts."'- ' But Sandy told Mr. Crow to keep his- advice to himself. "What about Farmer Green's corn?" Sandy asked the old "gen tleman. "I've Jieard ' that Farmer Green is looking for you with a gyn." Mr. Crow didn't even answer I.un. He just flew away. ' There were some things he didn't like to talk about. , . ' . . That very afternoon Sandy Chip munk spied a robin's est in a tree not far from tvherc he lived. And in less time tllan it takes to tell it, he had climAed the tree cand run out on the limb whfere the nest rested. , Sandy Chipmunk smiled as lie peered into the robin's nest. The four greenish-blue eggs that he saw And lie smacked his, lips though his mothqr had often told him not to. He. was just picking the eggs out of the nest when he heard a rustle in the leaves over his head. And Sandy Chipmunk looked up quickly. H- seemed to him, at first, that the air was full of monstrous birds. Actually, there were only three of them Mr. and Mrs.. Robin and a neighbor of theirs. But to Sandy they looked six times as big as they really were. That was because they liarl caught him robbing the nest., He was so startled (hat he dropped the eggs. They fell back into the nest all except one, which broke upon the ground beneath the tiee "Robbcrl" Mrs. Robin screamed. . "Thief!" Mr. Robin roared.
