I CLUB WINDOW
I CLUB WINDOW. .— —— Cardinal Bourne is a wonderful linguist, speaking six or seven lauguages with ease. It is said that it only takes him six months to pick up a working knowledge of any lan- guage. Mr. Roosevelt knows many good stories of the Rough Riders, whom he commanded in the Cuban War, and, "for old time's sake," these old comrades of his are always glad to help him at an election. "On one occasion," ¡tys Mr. Roosevelt, "a Rough Rider from Texas came with me on an electioneering trip and made a speech in my favour. But his intentions were better than his method, and when he got up to speak this is what he said: My fellow-citizens, vote for Roose- velt Vote for Roosevelt, and he will lead you as he led us, like sheep to the slaughter! The general laugh that fol- lowed, however, was not prejudicial to Mr. Roosevelt's chances in the least. I w Mr. David R. Francis, American Ambassa- dor to Russia, has had a remarkable career, having become mayor of St. Louis when only thirty-five years of age. He was mayor from 1885 to 1889, Governor of Missouri from 1889-93, and Secretary of the Interior from 1896-7. On one of his visits to America, Paderewski, the eminent pianist and composer, was in- troduced, somewhat against his will, to a man of little apparent culture, who pro- fessed great interest in music and much in- timacy with its finer phases. "We artists, you know, Mr. Paderewski," he remarked, "have our moods and tastes in common, which the ordinary man is incapable of understanding or sympathising with. You, Mr. Paderewski, have your instrument, to which your life is devoted, and I have mine. I rejoiae in you as a brother artist." "And what," inquired the great virtuoso, with desperate politeness, "is your instrument, Mr. -? "The concertina, sir," was the I proud response. WWW Sir Edward Carson relates a delightful story ooncerning his son, which shows the contempt that "the young idea" has for parental honours. It was not long after Sir Edward had relinquished the important poat of Solicitor-General, and he was addressing an audience on the methods for examining the candidates for the services. "I had a boy," said Sir Edward, "who went through that ordeal. I waited outside until it was over. When my son came out, I asked what had been said to him. 'A lot of rot,' he re- plied. They asked me if my father was the Solicitor-General, and when I said that he was, they wanted to know why I wasn't fol- lowing in his footsteps. I replied that, per- haps, after I had failed at this job, I would take it iii) The King of Spain made his first public appearance on a velvet cushion covered with a lace veil, and carried by the Prime Minis- ter of Spain. He was born in the morning; had the event taken place at night, red lamps would have been lit to announce the fact. As it was, the Royal Standard was hoisted and a salute of twenty-one guns fired. The King can hardly have been "a sturdy little recruit," for one newspaper de- scribed him as "the smallest possible quan- tity of a King." Mr. Albert Chevalier tells a good story about his early days on tour. After appear- ing one night at a small provincial hall, he told the manager that he did not expect to get such a cordial reception as the audience had given him. "What makes you say that?" said the manager. "I did not notice it." "Didn't you hear them banging their walk- ing-sticks and umbrellas on the floor?" asked Chevalier. "That wasn't applause," replied the manager. "The post-office is on the floor above us, and they were stamping letters for the mail! » » # Mr. Joseph Hocking, the novelist, was first educated at a little village school in Corn- wall, were the fees were graduated accord- ing to the social position of the parents. He learnt no Greek or Latin there, but had arithmetic, algebra, and Euclid thoroughly drubbed into him by a master who was a very good mathematician. He and his brother Silas probably became novelists through their mother, who had a wonderful gift for narrative, and used to tell the chil- dren innumerable stories of wizards, fairies, smugglers, and apparitions. Young Joseph Hocking used to imagine himself a pros- perous author with about 4:8,000 a year, and editors constantly begging him to contribute articles and stories to the pages of their papers. # ♦ Sir Charles Wyndham was once asked to exploit a certain reciter, and gave an "At Home" for the purpose, at which Mr. Glad- stone was present. It was a terribly hot afternoon, and the reciter announced oJ that he would give "Elaine" by Lord Tennyson. After the recital, Sir Charles went to < the "G. 0. M." and said, "I'm afraid you've had a trying time with all this heat?" "Not at all," was the reply. "I have had a charming afternoon. I thank you for ask- ing me, and now I am quite refreshed I can run back to the House." Sir Charls was elated, for the rather "heavy" "Elaine" had been a success after all. He rushed to the stage, where he found his guests waiting for him and for tea. "What have we done to you," they cried, "to give us 'Elaine' on a day like this? Surely there was something lighter to choose?" "Lighterr" echoed Sir Charles. "That's the trouble with you Society people, you're all so frivolous. I gave you a classic treat. Why, Gladstone has just told me he had a delightful after- noon." "Of course he had," WaE; the re- joinder, "for he was asleep all the time!" Mr. Lloyd George has a gift of repartee which never fails him. "I am here," he began once at a political meeting, when a voice chimed in, "So am I." "Yes," came the overwhelming retort, "but you are not all there!" The Right Hon. Andrew Fisher, the High Commissioner for Australia, began life as a pit boy at ten, with his father, who was a working collier. He practically educated himself, and, as the years went by, worked so earnestly for the betterment of the con- ditions under which his fellow-workers laboured, that he aroused the antagonism of employers, was blacklisted, and forced to Emigrate to obtain employment. This was in 1885, when he was twenty-three. Eight years later he entered the Queensland Parliament after working in the goldfiekls. where his sterling character earned for him much popularity among the diggers. A keen debater, organiser, and labour stndent. lie steadily climbed the ladder of political fame and success, culminating in his appointment as Prime Minister of Australia ii 1910. To his labour friends, however, he is still Andy, the pit bov of Kilmarnock, and although his: native country did not treat him kindly. Mr. Fisher cherishes no bitter feelings against it. He still loves the land of "banks and braes." and dotes 011 Burns. Admiral Sir George Warrender is a very keen yachtsman, and is one of the few British admirals who is also a member of the Royal Yac-lit Squadron. He has .seen strenuous service both on land and sea. His first experience of fighting was with the Naval Brigade in the Zulu War of 1879, six vears after he joined the Navy, and he again Raw fighting in the China War, when lie was to tlif, rear-admiral of the I China Squadron.
IFELL FROM SKYLIGHT
I FELL FROM SKYLIGHT. MYSTERIOUS FATALITY AT RHOOSE. Frederick Deo (17), of 15, Palmier- streot, Cadoxton-Barry, was killed whilst at work at Rhoose Cement Works on Friday last. ShorUy aft? breakfast he cHmbed to the top of the mill-house, and in a few minutes acci? dentally feLl through the skylight, ? ?depth of 30ft. Some men ruined to his assistance, but the unfortunate young ?man sustained such serious injuria that he succumbed before the arrival of Dr. Mason Jones from Barry. THE INQUEST. Mr. Archibald Daniel, the deputy; coroner, held an inquest at Cadoxtoll- Barry Police Station, on Monday after- noon, on the body of Frederick Thomas Dee (17), son of Private W. Dee, of the 12th Welsh Regiment, a labourer, living at 15, Palmer-street, Cadoxton, who was killed by falling fironi the roof of the coiilmill at Hhoosc C ('incut Works on Friday. Mr. W. Edwards, solicitor, Cardiff, was present on behalf of the proprietors of the Cement Works: and Mr. D. Timothy, H.M. Inspector of Factories, also attended. I The evidence of Sydney Durston, the kilnman, showed that for some unex- plained reason deceased on Friday morning went up three flights of stairs to the roof of the building, a height of 30ft. and in a few minutes he fell through the skylight to the ground, where lie li Nr iiiicoiisciotis, and suc- cumbed in a few minutes. Thomas Maidment, also employed iIl the mill, gave similar evidence, but neither witness was able to say what was the business of the deceased 011 the roof. The works manager, Mr. James Watts, said the lad had no right what- ever on the roof, and his object in going there was a mystery. The Jury's verdict was one of "Accl- dental death." with a recommendation that the doorway leading to the roof b0 closed t(-) pr(,?7e iit i repetition of tlio closed to prevent a repetition of th?
