So did a writer recently describe a woman who went by a man she intended to ignore or pretended not to see. . And we have -an inquiry from a reader as to the origin of the expression. -i While not so .frequently met with in tfiJETtruited States, this expression is quite commonly used throughout England. Perhaps it strikes a more responsive chord in the land of its nativity because c.f the fact that its introduction hio the language was inspired by Lard Nelson, who at the Battle of Copenhagen, is reputed to liaVe purposely applied his telescope to his blind eye. so as to avoid seeing an inconvenient signal.

London, April 19.—The House of Commons undertook a discussion this week on whether boiling alive was the-most humane way of killing lobsters. Peter Freeman, a Welsh Laborite. said the lobsters' cries and groans could be heard for a considerable time after they were im- 1 mersed in boiling water and ask, : in view of this inhumane practice, [ that lobsters be prohibited ! from the Commons menus. James Compton, chairman of the kitchen committee, asserted death was instantaneous in I the Commons' "steamer" and denied that anything in the nature of groans came from the lobsters. "The same method cooking," he added, "applies to. shrimps, niussles, winkles, and other shell fish." "What about the brutal method of eating oysters?" interjected a Conservative. j Then.Mr. Compton said: "Seeing that the Commons has abolished capital punishment in the irmy, if objectons to the present system of cooking will provide a humane killer for lobsters, I will see that it is used."!

C., April -lj9.-i— Although William Howard Taft lived seventleen jyears after retiring from the presidency, it more than probable that his bors in that post -contributed largely to the undermining bf'i his health. He;was a man of tremendous vitality and possessed wonderfully cheerful disposition; such a man might have been expected to live to an age . almost patriarchal: He was only 51 years old when inaugurated and served but one term: These facts probably explain a record of survival as yet unequaled by any;other President since the Civil War. Hayes, another 1 termer, came nearest to it, living nearly twelve years after . tbje close of his! administration. Cleve land; survived^ his retirement aboye eleven years; Roosevelt, not quite ten years. These are the "high" records since the Civil War. Earlier Presidents lived longer after leaving office. John Quincy Adams became President at an age exceeding by six years that of Mr. Taft at his inauguration. He served one'; term and lived ninej- teen years after its close. His father, John! Adams, lived more than twenty-five years after the close of his single term. He had become president at 61. Van Buren survived his single term twenty-one ;| years and. four months. Fillmore endured' nearly as long, twenty-one years and a few days. Madison ' served two terms and then! lived nineteen more years.!. Car Narrowly Missed Hitting Walker. (exception prpv- rule.
