Compliments have freijuently been
paid by famous statesmen to their
wives. It will be remembered how
Disraeli dedicated "Sybil "to the
most severe of critics, but a perfect
ire, and whin s certain wit. who
never allowed good taste to wait on
his humor, was rallying Disraeli on
his m arrive he received the ruttinv
ply:
I married from a motive which I
do not expect you to understand
gratitude."
Mr. Gladxtone. In old aire, said to a
friend: "My wife has known every
political secret I have ever had. and
as never betrayed my confidence,"
nd others have borne tribute to "the
tender viliganct which sustained and
prolonged his years."
I.aly balisbury, with no aptitude or
Inclination for public life, was the
stsy, eonfidsnte and social helpmeet

At a dinner to Mrs. Llovd Georra In
London, at which she was presented
ith a replica of a portrait of her
husband, a letter was read from Mr.
Lloyd George expressing deep appre-
lation of the "great kindness which
prompts my friends to present to the
brave little woman who is my wife a

Napoleon found obstacles In the
way of obtaining the property where
he had discovered the desired clryrxlth.
The German crown declared It was
not for aale. He asked for s long
tasLaa and the rluht to mine the Peak
Buemes. but that would conflict with
the laws of Hungarian lease and rent

Reailxlna that he never would ar
rive at the actual working of the mine,
unless he took s decided step, he paid
a visit to the Count von Werdensteln
personally.
Thla time he crossed the ocean in
one of the newest English liners that
made the trip between New Tork and
Liverpool In three days.
Upon his arrival In Berlin he visited
his friend, Herr Kalmar, before he
even sought a hotel. The German

They stopped and stood silent for a

on Napoleon's shoulder and tenderly
and lovingly she whispered:

follow wherever you lead."
In the meantime the aerodromone
was rapidly nearing Clryne.

ahort time, her mind revolving ail the
details of her plan.
Santoa sat with hla hand on th

more particularly, the Idle army and

K,r.nlAnn listened travely to the
nniniona of thla brave and broad

He told the count that he wa anxious
to gain control of th property la

Schomburg Llthow estate.
Th count wa somawhat taxes

"May I ask what cause your anxie

and made ready to report the result

Th attendant was dismissed and

asked the messenger to sit down. In

took a package from his Inside vest

UNIONISTS FAVORING ULSTER

the same platform a Sir Edward Car

in the house of commons, pledged ine
support of the unionist party to

resistance to home rule. His eagerly
awaited reply to Premier Asquitb'
offer of a compromise on October 25,
however, consisted merely oi a
ment that the unionists would consider
carefully any proposals the prime min
ister cared to make relative u m ablu
tion of the home rule problem, if a so
lution were possible.
Mr. Bonar Law expressed the opin
ion that the only logical way the gov
ernment eould avoid the responsibility
of plunging the country into civil war
was to secure a mandate from the peo
ple by a general election, and if it fa
vored home rule it would be acquiesced
in by the unionist.
