‘Mollie’ ami Marne.” Chapter 111—Scene—
A beautiful parlor iu out of New Haven’s
best homes: Mary beautiful and collected,
seated on a sofa: student with one hand
in coat pocket, standing by grate fire, with
one elbow on mantel: he complains of his
hard luck in Horace; is sure to flunk on
exam.; Mary consoles him tenderly: slu
dent goes over to sofa, looks into Mary’s
dark eyes, tells her the trouble is that his
Horace sings of no one but Mary, and that
the rest of the fellowsand tlie professor
don’t translate that way; Mary blushes
beautifully: he takes her hand, and they
are very happy. Chapter IV—The fellow-
goes to his room and writes ‘My Mary’ in
bis Horace and flunks on the exam.”
In following out this liue of thought
Wilson bad walked half way to Lake
Whitney. Suddenly another idea had
struck him. He turned around and start
ed for his room. <JU reaching it betook a
triennial catalogue aud looked through to
see what names in the class of ’55 had the
initials W. B. To his perplexity be found
several names with these initials.
“Well, if there isn’t Billie Henderson's
name! I never thought of it, but I sup
pose bis name is really William.” said
Wilson to himself. “He could never have
owned this book, though, for he must have
been a regular grind.”
The term was drawing to a close when
one day Professor Henderson announced
to Lis class that they should bring their
own copies of Horace to tlie classroom on
the next day. They would do some read
ing at sight, he explained, and the class
would be allowed to use what notes were
to be found iu their books, as the edition
furnished by the university for classroom
work had no notes whatever. The next
day, therefore, Wilson took his Horace to
class. The passage which was assigned
to him was the one which the former own
er had found so difficult and had sought
relief for his feelings by writiug “Mame”
and “Mollie” ou the margiu of the page.
Wilson, however, buckled iu manfully,
aud when called ou translated with some
fluency and sat down.
The professo, looked over the top of his
glasses and said rather sternly, “I do uot
understand, Mr Wilson, how you obtain
the lueauiugs that you give to some of the
Wilson hesitated a moment, and then a
happy thought struck him. Something
that he bad seeu iu the notes came to hie
“I think, professor,” he said, “that my
text must differ from yours.”
“Ah,” said the professor, “let me see
Wilson walked up the aisle from the
rear of the room and banded his book to
the professor with the assurauce that a
man has who is sure that he is in the
The professor look the book and glanced
over the page His expression changed in
a moment. Old memories seemed to come
up, aud he leaned bis hi-adon bis hand and
looked steadily at the book. Finally lie
raised his eyes, and handing the book to
Wilson said, “You are quite right, Mr
After the recitation was over Professor
Henderson called Wilson to his desk. “I
should like, Mr. Wilson,” he said, “to ob
tain that copy of Horace from you when
you are through with it, if you have no
objection to parting with it. It's an odd
edition, you know,” he added in explana
tion, “and I —I should like to have it to
compare with other texts.”
Wilson assured him that he could get
along without it, nodded good day to the
professor as he weut out of the door, and
the professor nodded soberly in return.
“Well, I'll be Flowed!” exclaimed Wil
son as soon as he was well away from the
recitation room. “Who would have thought
it?” And lie buttoned up liis coat and
hurried to his room to tell the story to

Tu .a I (struct a paper or steal a dispatch
from one of the embassies is not by any
means an easy matter. To say that it
would be an impossible feat would savor
of exaggeration, for iu these days of scien
tific burglary there is nothing impossible
under the sun. Vp to the time of writing,
however, such an instance is unknown.
In the entourage of every embassy there
are one or mure private detectives who
are invariably gentlemen of official or mil
Stary rank. Notwithstanding, pajiers of
comparatively infinitesimal importance are
environed with the same precautions as
others of untold value. The documents
are all inclosed in an iron safe, the key of
which is held by the embassador or min
ister only, the latter taking all responsi
bility aud acting as charge d'afiaires in
the absence of the former.
Dispatches do not remain long at the
embassies. At a given date, the length of
which varies according to the respective
distances of the countries represented, a
special messenger is sent to fetch them.
A weekly call is made at the British em
bassy, but at the American and foreign
ones naturally a longer interval is allowed
The messenger from the foreign office
brings a bag which is fastened w ith a pat
ent lock and cannot be opened except by
the key in possession of the embassador
or the charge d'affaires.
heu the bag is
cleared of its contents, the return dispatch
ts which the embassador sends to bis gov
ernment are placed in it and carefully con
» ealed. It is then closed and returned to
the messenger, who conveys it to the min
ister for foreign affairs, who opens it with
a duplicate key.
If the documents are of special impor
tance, they are not intrusted to the ordi
nary messenger. Some one in the imme
diate entourage of the embassy takes
charge of them instead. No one is allowed
access to the chancery office in which they
are placed, and visitors are only received
in rooms dedicated to the purpose.
Precautions uro carried to such an ex
tent at several embassies that if a secreta
ry cannot personally ask for instructions
from his hierarchical chief he is obliged
to inclose his queries in a special locked
box, which can only be opened by the du
plicate key at its destination, and the re
plies are returned in the same manner. It
is the rule iu each embassy tint the dis
patch box can only be handed to one of the
secretaries ami must never by any chance
be given into the custody of a stranger.
»Sworn translators are now only employ
ed in certain embassies where the diplo
matists do not speak or understand French.
Even the Chinese legation has now dis
pensed with a sworn translator, as the first
secretary invariably speaks- and under
stands the language perfectly.
There are other precautions to be ob
served besides those concerned with the
l»ossible confiscation of papers. There is
the fear of indiscretion in those intimately
connected with the legation to be guarded
against, and for this reason members of
the diplomatic service are debarred in near
ly every instance from marrying any one
not of their owu nationality. Prince Bis
marck made this the rule in Germany, and
there are very few exceptions to it. If a
diplomatist is retained who Is murried to
a foreigner, he is carefully transferred to
any country but that of his wife, the rea
son being that there are still a few ladies
who fail to act up to the old maxim that
“discretion is tlie better part of valor.”—
