In some caees only one eye is affected, but etren then death is certain to take place within seventy-two hours. The effect is ascribed to the diseased state of the sympathetic nerve, but why it should always be a death symptom is not known.

That was a curious desire expres ed by George II, that his r.shes and these of his Queen Caroline, should bs allowed to mingle. They are buried in the Chapel of Henry Vlt. The mingling of the remains was enicted by the_removal of one sirln from each of their coffins; and about fifty years ago, when their vaults were opened for the last time, the two sides which had been withdrawn were seen standing against the wall. In Edward Confessor's ..chapel many kings and queens were buried with rich and appropriate monntnents over their moulder- ing dust. The central one on the east aide is that of Henry V. The altar tomb, with a recumbent figure, which is headless now, is of oak, and was originally covered with engraved plates of brass. The absence of the head is accounted for by the statement that it was solid silver, but some klepto- matiac of Henry Vtlth's time walked off with it, although Cromwell was charged with the misappropriation; as indeed he he was for a long time after the Stuarts returned to powet, charged with all sorts of vilhany. Henry V. in his youth was anything but a well-behaved youiig man, but he redeemed himself at; Agmcourt, although the war in which that battle had a, place was not a just or a wise one.

Looking west, on the right-hand side, is the tomb of Richard II. and his queen, Anne of Bohemia. That, also, is an altar tomb, but with two recumbent effigies and a canopy over them. Upon the latter was a painting, once fairly visable, of the Virgin Mary .and, the Saviour. The king was murdered 011 St. Valentine's day. He was a weak and treacherous man, but usually handsome.

In his dead Majesties right hand was a scepter with a copper-gilt cross; in the left hand a rod and dove, which stood on oak leaves or green enamel It was not all idle curiosity on the part of the antiquarians. The length of the body was discovered to be 6 feet 2 inches. As the longest bone of the leg cculd not be measured, they did not discover why he was called "Longshanks," but it was surmised that there was a .great disproportion between the length of his legs and body. It may, however, have been only given on account of his height. His queen, Elinor, is buried in the same chapel, and her monument is in the noithejst corner. This lady went with her husband to the Holy Land. This is she at whose funeral progress so many crosses were erected; one at every stage at which the cortege rested. Fifteen was the number; the last being Charing Cro.-«. Edward "the Third's queen, Philippa, has a monument on the southeast corner.

Henry tho Third's tomb, next to, but west of, Queen Elinor's is a Mosaic tomb and canopy. This was built over a very interesting spot, being no other than the grave tenanted previously by Edward. It was while standing at the edge of this grave that the Earl of Gloucester, at the head of the barrons of England, placed his hand upon the royal corpse, and the barons did the same, all swearing fealty to Edward the First, then absent in the Holy Land, where, as I have just stated, his queen accompanied him. By the way, when this king's tomb was opened for the examination of the body, Gough, the antiquary previously named, was actually detected trying to hide, in a huge wrapping coat he wore, a whole forefinger that had once belonged to "Longshanks."

Mr. Frazer and Mr. Newbtrry entered upon tho work hist month in the southern part of the province of Minich in upper Egypi, a region particularly rich in sepulchres of the 12th dynasty, and hope to complete their survey in two seasons. The work includes measuring and making plans of the monuments, copeying and photographing the inscriptions, sculptures and wall-paintings, and making note oi all tho recent depredations. They propose to collate existing texts with the copies made by all early travelers, in order to fill up lacunro, and show what damage has been done in tho course of the century. To this end they have already taken copies of all published texts belonging to tho province, 1'ave examined the portfolios of drawings by the late Robert Hay between 1825 and 18S7 (in the library of tho British museum) and the sketches of the late Sir J. Gardner Wilkinson, which have •been deposited with Prof. Reginald Stuart Pool for the use of the oflicors of (ho survey. The results of each year's work, with maps, photographs, translations lind summaries of inscriptions, will be published in, volumes uniform with tho annual memoirs of the Egypt exploration fund. A special subscription has been opened for the archeologieal survey, anil something over $600 lias been entered on the lists, while H.

The Englishman boasts of thfl|rose. Tho Irishman grows merry over the shamrock. And now the Canadian dfil.'g-h's in the doubt about the manner of Richard's death, One was that he was poleaxed in PonteBael castle by Sir Piers of Exton, assisted by eight men. Another account j lv-is it that, having escaped from that ' castle he wandered into the;Scottish isles, where he was found by the jester of Donald, lord ot the isles. Donald sent him to Robert III., king of Scotland, by whom he was well treated, and after that monarch's death he was delivered into tho care of the duke of Albany, and finally died m bib bed at Stirling castle, and was buried in the Church of the Preaching Friars in Stirling town. Lord Dover tried to upset the faith in these two stories, and quoted authorities to prove to his own satisfaction that Richard voluntarily starved himself to death in the prison lit Pomfret, or Poutert'ract, as it is spoiled. Stow asserts that there was nothing voluntary about the starvation, but that the king waa kept from food and suffered cold casion when there was anything extraordinary to see, was not absent when the body of Henry's queen, Katherine of France, was exposed to view, which, by some chance, was so exposed for two or three centuries. The old gossip chatters in his diary thus: "Here we did see, by particular favor, the body of Queen Katherine of Valois, and 1 had the upper part of her body in my hands, and I did kiss her mouth, reflecting upon it that I did kiss a queen, and that was my birthday, 36 years old. that I did kiss a queen." In Henry VII. V chapel, which I will not attempt, to describe, for want of space and because its elaboration of detail demands exactly wh it it has received, records of its own royalty lie very thick around. In addition to the sovereign after whom the chapel is named, there is Mary Queen of Scots' body and head; the merry monarch, Charles II., who must have looked very strange in his coffin, with his dark complexion, strongly marked features and without that big black wig; Queen Elizabeth, no doubt with rich costume, was seven monthsjd The Doratis reside at No. 306 South Woren Street, and keep ^ boarders, who dedvoteo.part of each even- k., ing to nursing him.

His appetite for tobacco wafl found to be a normal one. He had every apperance of thriving under it. All the neighbors were shocked however and many of them indignant. Dr. Elmer Rogers was consulted, but he discovered no traces of nicotine poisoning, and that the tobacco had a soothing effect on the child who was weaneci early. He smoked a pipe full of tobacco, and was also able to enjoy from two to five cigars daily, Father and mother were both proud of (heir precocious son, and never tired of reciting reminiscences of their boy's career as a smoker. During the last two years and a half they encouraged him to smoke cigars in preference to the pipe. This was a precaution taken at the request of the family physician, who thougnt that the nicotine deposits in old pipes might event-. ually become hurtful. VVinfield" evidently craved the effects of the poison, as he would not smoke a now clay or briar pipe, liking best one well saturated with nicotine. He preferred strong cigars and was a fine judge of them. Winfield attracted much attention when he was pushed about in a baby coach with a black pipe in his mouth, smoking and E uffing like a veteran.

J A number of small boys in the neighbor- •** hood have tried to imitate the "baby smoker" with dire results, some being laid abed for repairs, and others having thier knickerbockers dusted. Winfield differed from tho majority of prodigious smokers in so much as he was never known to smoke a cigarette. The odor of burning paper was distasteful to him and he was costantly instructed to avoid the cigarette as he would so much poison. Doctor Rogers watched the boy almost daily with a view of discovering the first symptom of nicotine poisoning, but he never found any.

The other national emblems have been immortalized in song and in history through rolling centuries, but Canada's is of recent origin.

At a public meeting holt 1 for arranging for Ihe royal visit, the following resolution was passed: "That all native Canadians joining in the procession, whether identified with the national societies or not, should wear a maple leaf as an emblem of the land of their birth." Thus started, tho custom grew into general favor. For over thirty years the maple leaf stands linked with Canada's history. It denotes beauty, strength and solidity. and accordingly exposed the body to oub- lic gaze for three days in St. Paul's cathedral. The unhappy king had his monument erected during his lifetime.

There i sud imagery conveyed in Bolingbroke's lines when he is banished, but the term o banis' ment is reduced to four years : How long a time lies in one litllu weoli. Four lagsriii£ winter* and four wuntcm sm-iiiL'n End in a word; such is tho broutli ot kings. That is very forcibly impressed on the traveler us he stands amid the costly mon- uiiwiii.s of so niuny kings, but in a different sense. Almost opposite the Richard and Second's tomb is the altar tomb of Edward the First, lie died on his way to battle, at Burgh, in the Sands, near Carlisle. He WUN stirmuned Lougshaiil'S. His body was inclosed in wax and interred in a stone coffin. In 167U, more than four hundred and fifty years artei- Ins death, the tomb was opened ^y sundry members of tho society of antiquaries, and tho corpse was found and described. The body was wrapped in strong, thick, linen cloth, waxed on the inside j the head and face was covered with a fice cloth of crimson sarnonet, wrapped into three folds, timilar to that worn by Christ, on his way to crucifixtioii, according to the Roman Catholic record. When these cloths were removed Edward was seen in it rich dress ; the body, however, being; wrapped even to tho fingers, m cere cloth. Over this w^s a tumo of red silk damask; above that, a stole ot looks that way. As for the scattering of the Stuarts, the three last pretenders of the throne of that line have recorded upon their tombs in the holy cathedral church of St. Peter's at Rome, their pretended title of kings of Great Britain and Ireland: "James III king of England; born June 10, 1688 : died One. 80, 1766; aged seventy-eight years." "Charles III., king ofJEngltuld, born Nov. 30, 1720; died Jan. 21, 1788- aged sixty-eight years. He lived and died a pensioner of King George III of £4,000 a.year." Poor old gentlemen!
