BY THE WAY Lord Grey of the Reform Bill, according to George M. Trevelyan in his recent book about the statesman, studied at Eton for eight years, but was not a good “Oll Etonian,” for after leaving that celebrated “public school” of England he did not visit it again for fifty years.

“ He refused to send any of his numerous sons to a public school, on the ground that he himself had been taught nothing at the most famous of these establishments.” Mr. Trevelyan himself, however, believes that Lord Grey really gained much from Eton, and that his criticism was essentially directed at the limited aims of the curriculum and of the system then in vogue.

“ I would suggest,” a man writes to a newspaper anent the question of giving up a seat to a woman in a crowded car, " that in these days of equal suffrage the rule of

They started - The Star-Spangled Banner” in a crowded car, and when the men rose the gobs suddenly stopped and raised the cry of “Women and children first,” and the women sat down amid general laughter. If on shipboard in time of peril, why not on land on ordinary occasions—let the stronger ones give way!

A curious cause of railway accidents is brought out in an Inter-State Commerce Commission report on the derailment of a passenger train. The derailment was caused by the breaking of opposite rails which had been “snow-burnt,” this condition apparently resulting from an engine's wheels slipping on account of being stalled in the snow. The report states that “the means of distinguishing between safe and unsafe rails of this type unfortunately has not been made known” as yet, these 6 snow-burnt” rails being somewhat common.

A newspaper paragraph tells of the re markable rise of Daniel Willard, President of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. He began work in 1879 as a track laborer on the Central Vermont Railroad. Then he became a locomotive fireman, then engineer, then foreman in the repair shops; later he was advanced to the position of trainmaster, and then became superintendent of the “Soo” line. After serving as General Manager of the Erie and VicePresident of the C., B. and Q., he was elected President of the Baltimore and Ohio road. He has received honorary degrees from Dartmouth and West Virginia Universities and was commissioned a Colonel in the Engineering Corps during

OF LIFE In a love-letter to her who later became his wife Hawthorne wrote as follows:

“ Sometimes during my solitary life in our old Salem house it seemed to me as if I had only life enough to know that I was not alive, for I had no wife then to keep my heart warm. But at length you were revealed to me in the shadow of a seclusion as deep as my own. I drew nearer and nearer to you, and opened my heart to you, and you came to me, and will remain forever, keeping my heart warm, and renewing my life with your own. You only have taught me that I have a heart; you only have thrown a light deep downward and upward into my soul. You only have revealed me to myself, for without your aid my best knowledge of myself would have been merely to know my own shadow-to watch the flickering on the wall, and mistake its fantasies for my own real actions."

And here is what Mrs. Hawthorne felt moved to write of her husband after eight years of married life:

“ He has a perfect dominion over himself in every respect, so that to do the highest, wisest, loveliest thing is not the least effort to him, any more than it is for a baby to be innocent. "It is his spontaneous act, and a baby is not more unconscious of its innocence. I never knew such loftiness so simply borne. I have never known him to stoop from it in the most trivial household matter any more than in the larger or more public ones. Happy, happiest is the wife who can bear such and so sincere testimony to her husband after eight years' intimate union. Such a person can never lose the prestige which commands and fascinates. I cannot possibly conceive of my happiness, but in a kind of blissful confusion live on. If I can only be so great, so high, so noble, so sweet as he, in any phase of my being, I shall be glad.”

An American writer in an essay on Hawthorne, after quoting the two passages above, comments as follows:

“What was poverty and obscurity and isolation unto these two souls, so complete in each other that nothing else was desired ? How deep a lesson might the young of these later days, who hesitate to take each other unless all things else be added unto them, learn from this perfect marriage ! How much, too, could they learn from the dignity and the refinement and the charm of that early home, where all was so simple, so humble, and yet so rich and satisfying ! Would that we had more such homes of royal poverty in these days of vulgar pretense and showy unreality! More homes where there is no shamefacedness over the want of luxuries of their neighbors, but a simple content with what it is possible to have honorably ; where plain living is a religion, and where there is no insatiable longing for the unattainable. The worship of wealth, the feeling that there is no other good than money, is one of the most degrading features of our modern life. It is a falsehood, too. There is everything good in the world, and most of the things which are best in life can be had with but a little money. No man is poor unless he feels poor's If a family are willing to live their own noble life, pitched in a high key, and with little regard for what their neighbors may say and think, it is still possible to be happy in this goodly world, though the bank account may be small cr there be no bank account in the case.".
