60ES FAR BACK IN HISTORY
French City of Montdtdler Was of Im
portance In First Mlllcnrtlujrt of
tho Christian Era.
Tho National Geographic society Is
sues tho following war geography bul
letin on Montdldler; u few mile east
"This little town, whoso hMory
ilntca hack i tho first millennium of
tho Christian era, had n population
of loss tlnu 5,000 at tho beginning of
tho wnr, hut It wiis rich. In historic
association . It la said to hiwi de
rived Its tuinij) from tho fact Unit
Dldler or Doslderlus, tho Inst of the
Lombard kings, was Imprisoned hero
la 774 by (hnrlenmgne.' It will ho re
membered that Charlemagne,, having
put aside his firat wife, Dcshlerlus'
daughter, took tip tho quarrel of I'opo
Adrian 1 with tho Lombard monarch,
nnd after marching an army across
tho Alps, captured tho erstwhile fa-thcr-In-law's
capital city, Tlclnum,
ami took ttiq vanquished ruler bad;
to Franco, whoro bo died In captivity.
"Montdldler Is nttructlvuly sltuutod
on an eminence on tho banks of tho
river Don. It 1h tho capital of an nr
rondtssement In tho department of
the Somme, and In 02 miles north of
Paris by rail, nnd 23 miles southeast
of Amiens. Its chief Industries bo
foro tho war were tanneries and tho
manufacture of xlnc-whtto.
"When tho tides of wnr finally ro
ccdo It Is probablo Hint tho threo build
ings In which tho citizens of Mont
dldlor took tho greatest prldo will ho
crumbling ruins. These arc tho church
of St. I'lerre, which wus built beforo
Columbus set sail on his voyage of
discovery, aud which pflntnlns a tomb
and font of the eleventh century; tho
church of St. Sepulchre, n fifteenth
ccnt.ury edifice, and tho Pnlnls do Jus
Uce, formerly tho city castle. In tho
last named building visitors beforo tho
war were shown six unusually hnnd
somo Brussels tapestries of tho sev
enteenth century. Theso wero un
doubtedly removed beforo tho Ger
mans entered tho city.
"Montdldler's most famous son was
rffrmentler, tho scientist, who gnvo
Impetus to tho culture of tho potato
In France. A statue erected here com
memorates bis gift to the nation.
"For a number of years this little
city, was governed by Its own lords,
thijn passed under tho dominion of tho
counts pf Crepy nnd Vnlols. In tho
twelfth century It became n posses
sion of tho French crown and received
n, charter of liberties. In 1(530 It of
fered n gallant nnd successful resist
ance to tho Spanish Invaders."
Avoid Grouch and Live Long.
Writing for tho Minneapolis Jour
nal, A. J. It. notes the dcmlsd of u Se
attle citizen one hundred and three
years old, nnd suggests that otto of tho
reasons why ho IJvod so long was
that ho never grouched at tho break
fast tnblo.or elsewhere. Discussing
this. A. J. It. writes
"Tho enjoyment of brenkfast and
of Uio sunrlso nlwnys comes so eas
ily to mo that I sometimes wall In
charity for persons, who, I have been
ledto believe, start tho generous day
wrong by raising hades at tho break
fast table. I will freely wager 70
cents thnt tho Seattle centena
rian who lived to bo ono hun
dred nnd three never Insurged nt
breakfast, never complained of tho
food, nor sneered ut his wife's cook
ing." The aged Scattlcr ascribed bis lon
gevity to his own temper; ho had not
been angry slnco bo was twenty, nnd
had driven a yoko of oxen most of his
life. Also, loved everybody, and every
body loved him. .
He Hadn't Realized.
The custodian of an Indianapolis
building recently hired n colored man,
Gc'orgo, to work nbout tho building.
George had always worked as a "houso
man" nnd enmo well recommended.
Tho first day of his employment, how
ever, Oeorgo was out for lunch tho
greater part of threo hours.
Tho custodian was naturally an
noyed. "Where In thunder huvo you
been?" he Inquired tho minute he sot
eyes on tho erring floorgo. "Me?
Why, I'so been homo takln' a imp,"
Oeorgo answered, In a surprised tone.
"I always takes u nap In tho middle
of the day."
"Well bellovo mo," tho custodian do
clorcd, "you don't do that any more
You're heeded nround hero."
Was Oeorgo uggrlovcd? Not n bit
of It. A most appreciative grin spread
over his faco.
"Well, now," bo said slowly, "you'll
havo to excuso me this tlmo, boss.
It's Jus't thut I didn't realize beforo
bow Important I Is uround hero."
