In the reign of good Queen Anne
luela were no less frequent than in
the rowdy, riotous days of Charles IL
Lord Mohun, a dissolute, remorseless
nobleman, was the terror of honest
London citizens at this time, and
many were the infamous escapades in
which he played chief character. He
was guilty of one act which bears no
other name than that of murder the
killing of poor Mountford, the actor,
In cold blood because he endeavored to
protect the honor of Mrs. Bracegirdle,
the famous and beautiful actress. It
was Lord Mohun who fought and kill
ed the Duke of Hamilton, an affair
which all will remember who have
read Thackeray's great aoveL "Es
. The duel was fought with swords In
Hyde park, the challenge having been
sent by Mohun to the duke, who had,
with perfect accuracy, stated that one
of Mohun's creatures "bad neither
truth nor justice in him." The Duke
of Hamilton received a wound in the
right side of the leg about seven inches
long, another In the right arm, a third
in the upper part of the breast, run
ning downward toward the body; a
fourth on the outside of the left leg.
Lord Mohun himself was mortally
wounded, receiving a large wound in
the groin, another in the right side
through the body, in which, the sword
plunged right up to the hilt, and a
third in his arm. There is no doubt
he rightly deserved his death, because,
departing from the rules of fence
among men of honor, he shortened bis
word, thrust nnder his opponent's
guard and stabbed the duke In the
manner of a common assassin.

The most famous Philippine volcano
and one of the finest volcano cones in
the world Is that of Mayon. Ita height
la 8,070 feet, and the volcano is visible
at a great distance. Since 1760 records
have been kept of ita eruptions. In
that year many plantations and vil
lages were buried under a stream of
lava which flowed down its eastern
slope. About 1,200 lives were lost In
the eruption of 1814, which burled the
country around a part of the base of
Mayon under the outpourings of lava
and dust. A similar calamity In 1823
destroyed the lives of about 1,600 per
sons. In the nineteenth century there
were a number of severe eruptions, in
cluding one in 1886-87 which continued
about nine months. An eruption In
1897 killed 350 persons and destroyed
much property. Twenty-two violent
eruptions of this volcano are on record.
Next to Mayon the Taal volcano Is
the most remarkable. It Is on an is
land in the lake of Bombon, and the Is
land, built up by Its outpourings, has
an area of 220 square miles. The vol
cano is Incessantly ejecting dust and
vapor from Its crater. Taal, as well as
Mayon, has been the center of numer
ous destructive earthquakes, but no
very great eruption has occurred since
1864, when four villages around the
mountain were completely destroyed.
