Urn legend thnt a certain count' of
Salisbury dropped her gnrter nt n bull,
rind that tho king, picking It up nmld
tho smile of courtier, linnded It to
her with tho hnppy and now Immortal
phrase, "Hon! aolt qui mal y peniw."

to go tho way of tho story of King
Alfred and tho cnkcn, tho story of Will
iam Tell and tho apple, and many an
other pretty fairy tale of history, soya
a writer In tlw Sphere. At last I went
to Sir Nicholas Harris Nicholas "His
tory of tho Order of Knighthood,"
where I found a delightful mass of
contradictory authority produced.
Tho tale of the ensign and namo of
tho order wero first told by Polydoru
Vergil (1470-1M5), who wrote In tho
tlmo of Henry VII. and Henry VIIL.

queen or tho kins' mistress." Segor.
whoso work, "Honor, Military and
Civil," opiteared In IMS, 2.T0 year af
ter tho order wo founded, was tho
flrat to aoy that It wa tho Countess of
Salisbury. Other writers say that It
wo tho Countess of Kent. John Anstl
(HVKM744), garter king of arms, who
published several heraldic works, ridi
cule tho whole story. He confess
that an author of Henry VI.'s time,
who wrote In Lntln and whoso work hi
now entirely lot, upheld It.
Knplmel Hollnshcd, n chronicler who
died In 1."S0, tells the atory In detail
and say tho lady wn tho queen, which
surely rather spolli tho significance of
tho legend. Sir Harris Nicholas him

whllo ho haa much to say about the
order In hi hundredth chapter, iIom
not refer to It, nnil Nicholas admit
that this tell very much against the
uppoed origin of tho story ; but Frols-

trivial to relate.
