Melrose abbey was a beautiful abbey--now m rums--on the bank o£ the Elver Tu eed, Scotland, 40 mites suuth- west of Edinburgh. It was founded by David I (1124-1153) tor the Cistercian monks in 1130, and became tlie mother church of the order in that country. After bfinj,' twice damaged by the English, it n:is, rebuilt in a style of increased magnificence between the years 132:2 and 130.1, but was again devastated by the English under the earl of Hertford, in 104!i, and was totally mined during the Scotch reformation. Since that time no attempt at restoration, has been made, and the ruins have served us a quarry for the neighboring town of Melrose. The ruined chuicli is all that remains at the present day. It is greatly admired for the beauty of its architecture, which belongs to the Second Pointed style. Melrose abbey is the burial place of Michael Scott, the Wizard of the Lady; Alexander II, and Johanna, his queen ; Wlllijm Douglas, the "Dark KniRhl." and the second abbot, St. WuHheof. We heart of Robert Bruce I« said to be burled before the high altar. PUBLIC SCHOOL IH AMERICA B e g i n n i n g of Institution Can Clearly Be Traced to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The Idyl is sometimes distinguished from orher poem-, by the fact that Jt presents a picture; it is always dls- tinmiUlnid from (lie major typos uf poetry by the fact that it presents the qualities of one or another oC them, In H reduced and exquisitely delicate replicii. Such pastorals as the Book of lliiUi, Spenser's Shepherd's Calendar, and al! the rum! idvls of Theoc- ritus are l i t t l e paintings, like- Uitj genre pictures of tlie Dutch school. The Idyl may d^al nl^o \vitli domestic, or social, even hpvnic. themes. " The first kind N \vfl! represented by the Hebrew Foik of Tobft or Kuril's Cotter's Saturday Xight. The social idyl may ne of city or of court; it lias open cultivated \virh jrrestt success by the Greeks nnrl the Frenc-h. The heroic kind is rppresent^fl by the Book of Esther and by Tennyson's Idylls of the King.

The number of molecules in a given volume of a i r and the -nine volume of water in. tlie form of invisible gns under the same conditions is the same.

Closed cars, on high-grade chassis, were too costly for most buyers. So a. revolutionary thing wa« done. An entirely new closed body design that eliminated all the old, costly manufacturing methods was invented. And production on a scale unknown in the closed car field was started. It brought closed car comforts within reach of all. The Coach is durable. More than 40,000 owners are proud of it. It hat a simple and sturdy beauty. There is ample and comfortable carrying space for passenger* and luggage. Body rumbling noises are totally absent. Doors and windows «tay tight fitting. The Coach is built for service. On either the Hudson or Essex chassis it is ready always for any use. These are the essentials of a moderate priced closed car. \ Breaking t he Hocdoo. "What, Uavmg, Jane?
