Talleyrand haa been dead fifty-two
('ears, tne nrst volumes of the memoirs
ie left are issued. He himself forbad
their publication nntil thirty years after
a'h, and at that data his literary
pxecutor found a further postponement
necessary. He was thought to be the
depository of mere secrets than any other
man of his day, with greater power oret
the reputations of more men, living and
dead. Naturally these memoirs were
long awaited with a singular mixture of
curiosity and alarm.
The career these memoirs nortrav was
and remains unparalleled in moden
Europe for length and variety of dis
tinguished service. Beginning with Louis
XVI, from whom he received his first
appointment, and from whom he went
later with a letter to the king of England,
Talleyrand served in all eight known
masters besides a great number t
others who were at one time or another
aaid to have him secretly in their pay.
He became president of the Constituent
assembly which organized the French
revolution. He was sent to London on
a secret mission with a passport from
Dan ton. He was minister of foreign
affairs under the directory, under the
consulate, under Louis XVIII and under
In diplomatic skill and success contem
porary public opinion held him the first
man of his period that is to say, for half
a century the first man in Europe. Aj
to real influence on affairs, it is doubt
ful if any minister since can be said to
have exerted as much, with the excep
tions only of Bismarck and Cavour. Even
they did not cover so wide a range, or
deal with such a bewildering variety of
negotiations, extending over so great a
time, and furthering the views of so
many masters. Whitelaw Reid in Cen

It has often been claimed that tattoo
marks may be removed by pricking over
them goat's milk. This is a mistaken
idea. Chemists and others have for years
experimented with various preparations
tn tne hope of discovering some agent to
wholly remove india ink marks from the
human skin. Nothing, however, has as
yet been found that will remove a por
tion even of the objectionable marks, un
lets, possibly, the attempt be made im
mediately following the tattooing proc
ess. At Mount Washington University
hospital, Baltimore, an experiment was
some years ago made in the presence of
tne writer upon the forearm of a noted
character of that city who died there.
Before his death the man granted per
mission to the students of the university
to experiment as they saw fit with his
dead body. One of these students, curi
ous to learn everything possible connect
ed with the practice of tattooing, cut
from the dead man's arm a strip of skin
upon which a coat of arms appeared. Be
neath the skin the design remained risi
ble. By degrees the flesh was removed,
the design in india ink still remaining in
sight until finally the bone was reached.
After a thorough sponging for the pur
pose of removing the blood and pieces of
flesh remaining, it was found that the
representation still appeared. After cut-
ting away a small section of the bone the
india ink mark was found to have not
penetrated beyond. Boston Commercial
