retrospect. If quite otherwise at the
moment. mut bnve been tho occasion
when Charlotte Ilronlo, "tho little lady
from Ynrkxhlre nf whom all England
was talking." appeared at the London
house of tho author of "Vanity Fair."

meet Charlotte Ilronte In Juno. I&7),
and among tho guests wcro the Car
lylea, the Procters, the Itrookllrlds, Mr.
Crowe, Miss Eliot and 111m Perry.
"It was a gloomy and silent even
ing," Lndy Itltcblo has recorded. "Ev
ery one waited for the brilliant conver
sation which never began at all.
"Miss llronte returned to the rofa In
tho study nnd murmured a low wont
now nnd then to our governefs, Miss
Troclock. The room looked very dark?
tho lamp began to smoke a llttlo: the
conversation grew dimmer npd more
dim: the ladles sat round still expec
tant My father was too much per
turbed by the gloom and tho silence to
be nbte to cope with It at all. Mrs.
Hrookrlcld. who was In the corner In
r which Miss llronte was sitting, bent
forward with a little commonplace,
since brilliance was not to bo the order
of the orcnlng.
' 'Do you llko London, MUa Uronte T
sbo asked. Another alienee, n pause;
then Miss Uronto answered very
M Ves-no.'
"After Mlas Bronte bad left I was
surprised to see my father opening tho
front door with bis hat on. He put
bis Oncer to his lips, walked out Into
the darkness and shut the door quietly
behind him. Overcomo by the gloom
and constraint, be was running away
to bis club."
A Drsmatlo tneldint of th Political
Unrttt In Russia.
TTere Is tbe story of a Russian an
archist outrage In tbe words of one
who was nearly killed In the explo
sion: While staying at Cannes n.
Jones Thaddeus, author of "Recollec
tions of a Court Painter." met tbe
Grand Duchess Elene of Russia, who
gave-btm an account of tbe then re
cent attempt anon tbe life of the czar.
The czar was a few minutes late In
his arrival In the dining room, and for
this reason the explosion waa prema
ture. After describing tbe event the
grand dnebcas told Mr. Thaddeus:
"When the echoes of the explosion
died away a dead silence succeeded,
which, united with tbe darkness pre
vailing, so donao aa almost to be felt,
conduced to render our helpless posi
tion still more painful and unendur
able. We dared not move. There was
no escape from tbe peril which sur
rounded us. Present! out of tbe dark
ness came tbe clear, calm voice of the
cxar. My children, let us prayr The
sound of his voice, white reassuring
os as to his safety so far, relieved the
awful strain on oar nerves and brought
comfort to onr hearts.
"We sank to our knees, sobbing.
Dow long we remained eo I really do
not know. It seemed an eternity of
anguish before the guards appeared
with randies, little expecting to dnd
us alive. Pome of us were nearly de

"A fow feet tn front of the czar was

Tht "Copper."
There ore two theories as to the
source of tbe term "cop" or "copper,"
tho familiar name for an officer of tho
law In tbe mouth of tbe mlscblovous
gamin. One derives It from the letters
C O. P. central office police-but the
othor nnd more usual explanation of
the word Is that It referred to the
eight point star made ot copper and
surrounded by a coptwr ring worn by
tbe Metropolitan police of Now Tork
In tho late fifties. This bndce. a huge
affair, which was fastened to the but
tonhole by a chain about four Inches
long, was later superceded by a special
badge of smaller size.
