Stoddard'S serial, "With the Black Prince," gives in St. Nicholas an account of the splendid army that accompanied the prince to tho battle of Crecy. Mr. Stoddard says: It was the largest English fleet yet ft em bled, and the army going on board was also the best with which any English king had ever pnt to sea. It consisted of picked men only. Of these, 4,000 were men-at-arms, 6,000 were Irish, 18,000 were Welsh, but the most carefully trained and disciplined part of the force consisted of 10,000 bowmen. During a whole year had Edward and his son and his generals toiled to select and prepare tho in on and the weapons with which they were to meet tho highly famed chivalry of the continent. An army selected from a nation of perhaps 4,000,000 of people was to contend with an army collected from France with her 20,000,000, and from such allies of hers as Germany and Bohemia, re-enforced* by large numbers of paid mercenaries. Among these latter wore tho crossbowmeu of Genoa sold to Philip by the masters of that Italian oligarchy. Edward's adventure had a seeming of great rashness, for already it was reported that the French king had mustered 100,000 men. Full many a gallant cavalier in armor of proof may well have wondered to hear, moreover, that Edward III, accounted the foremost general of his time, proposed to meet superior numbers of tho best lances of Europe with lightly armored men on foot. They know not yet of tho now era that was dawning upon tho science of war. Edward and his bowmen were to teach tho world more than one new lesson before that memorable campaign was over. Before this hn had shown what deeds might be wrought upon the sea by ships prepared and manned and led by himself. He had so crippled the naval power of his enemies that there was now no hostile fleet strong enough to prevent his present undertaking, although Philip had managed to send out some scores of cruisers to do whatever harm they could.

PAIRS of Ladies' and Children's Shoes— Tho JTlrjt Man Ho Mot In the Alaska OoldlleldB Scared Him Off. "No," a man who was sitting on a box in front of n grocery store, "I can't say as I know very much about Alaska." His companions looked at him in astonishment. It was tho first time he had ever admitted not knowing much, about anything. "I reckon, then, that you're not thinking about going to dig for gold," said one bystander. "No." "Mebbe, though, as the stories of sudden wealth keep pouring in you'll change your mind," said another. "It won't be possible. I've been there." "And came back without getting rich?" "Yes. I didn't much more than cross the boundary lino before I turned around and struck for homo." "Scared?" "That's tho answer." "What of—polar bears?" "No." "Supplies give out?" "No, I had plenty of food. What changed my plan was seeing a man digging a hole. I had these ideas about gold being found anywhere and everywhere, and I went up thinking to get some points abqut mining. I asked him in an offhand way whether ho had struck any pay dirt yet, and he turned around and glared at me and said, 'Young fel- ler, what do you think I am digging this for?' I told him I thought he war digging for gold. Ho glared at me again and said: 'Goldnothing. I'm doing this for fun. I've been living here for four years, and there's one thing that niy curiosity has never been satisfied about. I'm going to dig this hole good and deep so as to allow plenty of room, and then find out just how far down this climate will make the mercury go.' "—Washington Star. A. JPttictlcat Joke That Will Played <m Catdl»al t*"6l Amelia Woftord tells of "The Court Jesters of England" in St. Nicholas. the following is related of King Henry VIH's jester: Sommers, like Scogan, liked a practical joke, and one that he played on Cardinal Wolsey is thus quaintly told by Armin : , "Of a time appointed the king dined at Windsor, in the ohappel yard at Cardinall Wolsey's at the same time when he was building that admirable work of his tombe, at whose gate stood a number of poore people, to be served with alms when dinner was done within, and as Will passed by they sainted him, taking him for a worthy personage, which pleased him. In he comes, and finding the king at dinner and the cardiuall by attending, to disgrace him that he never loved, Harry, sayes hee, lend me £10. What to doe? saies the king. To pay three or foufe of the car- dinall's creditors, quoth hee, to whom my word is past, and they are now come for the money. That thou shalt, Will, quoth hee. Creditors of mine? saies the cardinall. He give your grace my head if any man can justly aske me a penny. No, saies Will. Lend me £10. If I pay it not where thou owest it, He give thee £30 for it. Doe so, saies the king. That I will, my liege, saips thee cardinall, though I owo none. With that he lends Will £10. Will goes to the gate, distributes it to the poore and brought the empty bag. There is thy bag againe, saios hoe. Thy creditors are satisfied, and my word out of danger. Who received, saies the king, the brewer or the baker? Neyther, Harry, saies Will Sommers. But, cardinall, answer me in one thing, to whom dost thou owe thy soule? To God, quoth hee. To whom thy wealth? To the poore, saies hee. Take thy forfeit, Hairy, saies tho foolo. Open confession, open pennance. His head is thine, for to the poore at the gate I paid his debt, which heo yields is due, or if thy etouy heart will not yield it so, save thy head by denying thy word rthd lend it mee. Thou know- est I am poore and havo uoyther wealth nor wit, and what thou loudest to tho poore God will pay thoe tenfold. * * * The king laught at the jest, and so did the cardinall for a shew, but it grieved him to jest away £10 so."

Bok in The Ladies' Home Journal, decrying the unpleasant habit many people havo of discussing their bodily ills. "It is enough for us all to keep well ourselves. To be compelled to listen to the ailments of others does not make that task any easier. Besides all this, these unnecessary narratives of personal ailments are positively injurious to ourselves. Physicians all agree that many of tho slight illnesses, of which some people make so much, could be cured if they would but take their minds from themselves. Too many people work themselves into illnesses or prevent themselves from getting well by talking about a petty ailment which, if forgotten, would right itself. "I will not say that women, more than men, are prone to this evil, but as the majority of women have more leisure than the majority of men they are more likely to let their minds dwell upon every little ill that assails them and talk about it. It seems to me that one of the most important lessons we can all learn with the close of the year is to refrain from inflicting upon others •what is purely personal to ourselves. Lot us cease this tiresome, this inconsiderate, thi» unnecessary talk about our ailments. Cold and hard as it may seem, the fact is nevertheless true, and will ever remain so, that the vast majority of people are interested in what is pleasant in our lives, but not in what is unpleasant. Pains and sorrows are elements in our lives which are sacred and interesting only to ourselves." A Brilliant French Office*'* Mrlt AcHle**- ment on tne Field of Battle. Lejeune, the brilliant ftid-de-Ofifnp Of the Marshals Berthief, Davout and Ondipot, gives a very Interesting ac* counft of his first achievement on the field of battle. The French array was crossing the Alps and found itself compelled to attack at a great disadvantage a town which the Austrians were defending. Young Lejeune, who was anxious to participate in the engagement, Was greatly disappointed when he was ordered to remain at his post in the fear. When the firing began, his heart beat furiously, and as the attack progressed he felt that he could not remain passive •while his fellow soldiers were performing deeds of Valor. Believing himself unnoticed, he hurried forward, forgetting that the soldier's first duty is obedience, and just where the fray seemed to be thickest he found himself face to face with his commanding officer. The general looked at the rash young soldier coldly. "Since you have quitted your post," he said, "you may take this order and recall that co'mpany that has gone into a bad position." Lejeuno heard the order with a strange sensation, for this was an errand from which he was not likely to return alive. There was no escape, however, and touching his cap he started on his perilous mission with a quaking heart. For some distance he crept along behind a pile of rooks that protected him from the fire of tiro enemy, but at last this shelter came to an end. Before him there remained 100 steps to be taken under the fire of 200 guns pointed straight at him. To go forward was, he believed, certain death. To go back would be eternal disgrace. The whole army seemed like an amphitheater around him. Should he prove himself a coward or a hero? "If I die," thought he, "it will be only the just penalty of my disobedience; if I accomplish my mission, I shall havo proved that I am worthy yet to fight in the emperor's army. " So thinking, he rushed across the open space amid a storm of cannon balls and musket shot. Not one of the messengers of death touched him, and as if by a miracle he arrived safe and sound in the French lines. The delivery of that order saved the battalion and decided tho destiny of the young pffloer. Significance of the Nose. The nose, the form of which regulates the beauty of the otiler features, is by no means inaccessible to higher culture, for we have it on the authority of a German physician that it is beyond dispute that during half of an individual human life the nose is capable of receiving a more noble form. The training of the individual, the culture of his intellect and character, has a very considerable influence not only on the expression of the face in general, but also on the bodily nature of the nose. The characteristics of the various shapes of nose, according to physiognomy, are as follows: The small, flat nose found among women and called the soubrette nose, when occurring with an otherwise agreeable and fortunate build .of features, indicates,a certain gracious and cheerful naivete combined with an inconsiderate curiosity. Such a nose seldom is possessed by men, and when it is it denotes an individuality characterized by weakness and deficient sagacity. A nose thick and flat is an unfavorable feature with men as well as with women, usually signifying thai the character is predominated by material and sensual instincts, while a turned up nose, with wide nostrils, bespeaks a vain, puffed up disposition. Especially wide nostrils are signs of strength, courage and pride; small nostrils, of weakness and timidity. t No8es large in every respect are found mostly among men and are masculine- attributes.-— New York Ledges. }®~See us before you contract.

Ills Answer. "Tell me, am I not fair?" The speaker leans back in her seat and smiles coquettishly. In truth the question seems superfluous. As she sits there with the afternoon BUU transfusing her glorious tresses into a stream of liquid gold, her eyes as blue' as the heavens, fathomless as the sea and dancing with excitement; her lips of coral wreathed with a roguish smile, she is indeed trauscendeutally beautiful. But the man seems blind to her loveliness. He regards her with a frowning brow and eyes that smolder with anger. Timidly she repeats her question. "Am I not fair?" Her companion's face grows black as thunder.

At the age of 9 years he was entered as a royal cadet— i. e,, he was to be educated at the expense of the king, Frederick VI, in the Copenhagen Military academy — and, having taken his examinations, he wore the Danish uniform until he, as a sub- lieutenant at the age of 27, petitioned the king for three years' leave to proceed to the continent to study the military art, as he says in his petition, "to be able on his return to employ his acquirements for the good of his country," This petition was granted, but the count also asked to be allowed to retain his pay, and as the king refused this he took his discharge and entered the Prussian army, a recruit whom that organization has every reason to hold in enduring memory. Papa IB Excused. Here is the latest of an enfant terrible who lords it over the home of a politician in this city, says the Toledo Blade: The minister came to the house the other day and the kid entertained him for a short time. "Isay, I'm awful 'fraid of thedark," was his first remark. '' You should not bo," admonished the visitor, "for God takes care of you ev ery where," "I know it, and I say my prayers every uight, but pop he don't have to, as he don't get home till 'most mom- ing."

One day in 1880 Senator Hampton was going on his crutches from the senate chamber to the house of representatives. In the middle of the big rotunda he met a very large man, also on crutches. He was a member of congress from Illinois, a Republican, whose name I cannot now recall. Hampton stopped him and kindly asked his name and how he had received bin injury. After giving his name the congressman said amputation was necessary by reason of a- shot he had received iu a fight with Hampton's cavalry. He did not dream he was talking to Wade Hampton himself. '' I am. Wade Hampton,'' said the senator. "If you have the leisure, please sit down and let us talk." Hampton had lost his leg after the war, when thrown from a mule white deer hunting. The amputation was identical with that of the congressman, and they fell a-talking. Up to that time neither had found a cork leg he could wear, and they discussed cork legs for a great while. They parted, after mutual professions of esteem. The next morning I heard the congressman tell tne story in the committee room, and there never was a man who had a higher regard for Wade Hampton than he bad. I believe Hampton later found a leg he could wear.—Louisville Courier-Journal. Beat Rim Pown. Two Irishmen were cleaning ft wjtQ. dow in a tall building.
