National Emblem of
Wales Is Red Dragon
While the Imrp 1 a Vo'h1i mttioimT
Instrument, it is not rc-'oi:d as th
national emblem. Tlie national ;:n
blem for Wales Is the red dragon of
Cadwallader, the last of the Welsh
kings." Thl3 emblem Imd a place In
the royal arms of Creat Britain as a
supporter In the reign of King Henry
VII, but that king, toward the end of
his reign, changed the supporters,
which were the two white lions of
March, to the Welsh dragon on the
dexter side, with the white greyhound
on the sinister. The latter emblem
was representative of either the De
Beauforts, his own ancestors, or tiie
Nevilles, the ancestors. of his wife,
both of these families using the white
greyhound as a family Imdgc. In l."28
his son, Henry VIII, used for support
ers to the royal arms the golden lion
on the dexter, while the red dragon
of Wales, which his father had used
on the dexter, he relegated to the sin
ister side. These supporters continued
In use until the accession (in 1G03)
of James VI of Scotland as James 1
of England. James kept the golden
lion on the-dexter, but changed the
red dragon of Wales on the sinister to
the unicorn, as In the royul arms of
Scotland an emblem of purity.

The last lines of "The Star-Span-gled
Banner" were written in a row
boat by Francis Scott Key and were
not penned In the hold of a prison
ship as the old school books taught.
Legendary history was that Kn.v
was a prisoner of war while watching
the British bombardment of Baltimore
and Fort Mellenry during the war of
1812. The correct story has been
brought to light by the Woman's
Home Companion, which shows that
Key was permitted to go to the Brit
ish flagship under a truce signal to
obtain ti.e release of a friend who had
been taken prisoner, and arrived Just
as the enemy was ready to open fire.
The young poet developed his verses
during the anxiety of the night, but
It was while returning to shore in a
small boat the following morning that
lie wrote exultantly " Tis the Star
Spangled Banner. Oh ! long may it
wave o'er the land of the free and the
home of the brave."

A young university undergraduate
had to present himself for au exami
nation in which he was expected to
read a short thesis on Greek tragedy.
Knowing nothing of -the subject, he
asked the help of a friend, who was
an expert. This gentleman wrote and
gave him a masterly little treatise, ol
which the only fault lay In the pen
manship. At the examination all went well
until the young man startled his audi
ence with the sentence, "We now come
to the tragedies of Bophocles." .
"The tragedies of whom?" gasped
one of the examiners.
"You mean Sophocles 1" exclaimed
For some moments the young man
gazed earnestly at the manuscript.
Then he looked up with- a reassured
smile, and said, ".No, It is distinctly
