    Highlight: And Montague Rayner, sitting “at anchor” in a small clear space in the sea of frippery, was occupied in holding -a skein of violet silk for the younger Miss Esmaine to wind. Of course he was dreadfully clumsy about it, perpetually dropping the ends, and catching his great thumbs in the meshes, and com- mitting every faux pax that could be dreamed of in connection with a skein of violet silk ; but then he enjoyed it so intensely that Matty hadn’t the heart to depose him from his position as swifts, pro tem.! “For the sick soldiers, eh?” said Mr. Rayner. “And aren’t the well soldiers to derive any emolu- ment therefrom?” “ Of course not; they don’t need it." “ Don’t they? I tell you what, Miss Matty — if you could be on picket-duty a night or two, or carry a knapsack up and down the muddy

    Highlight: But the two examples in Sir Montague Chapman’s cabinet take rather more explanation. One of these can be identified with reasonable certainty. It appeared as lot 65 in the sale of the collection of the late Sir Benjamin Chapman, Bart., 1 which took place at Sotheby’s on 8 November 1894, and was sold to Spink for £51, a very high price at that date; but in this case the catalogue carried Dr. Smith's testimony as to the authenticity. 2 The coin was sold to J. G. Murdoch and it appeared in the fourth portion of his auction sale held at Sotheby’s on 12 December 1904, lot 38. the coin being illustrated on Plate I. 3 The catalogue claimed that it was from the Chapman collection and it was purchased again by Spink but for £47. 5s. The coin was advertised twice in the Circular 4 before being bough

    Highlight: MONTAGUE. In order that the transferrer of stock in an insolvent National bank may be held liable thereon, it is not necessary that he should have had actual knowledge of the insolvency of the bank ; it is sufficient if he had good ground to apprehend the failure of the bank, and made the transfer to an irresponsible person, with intent to relieve himself from individual liability. A letter addressed by a stockholder to a National bank examiner in regard to the sale of bis stock in a National bank, though in reply to a letter from the examiner marked ** oonll- dential,” is admissible in evidence against such stockholder.

It does not appear from the evidence that the person who made the offer was insolvent, although one person is said to have declared that he had good credit in the Jonesborough Bank. The offer was for $1,000 of the stock at fifty cents on the dollar. It was not made until April 27.

    Highlight: La Montague’s defeat of Campbell can hardly lie called a surprise, for the play of ueither was a revelation to those who had previously seen them in the court. Im- mense gratification, however, attended the result, no less because of the triumph of La Montagne's tried and refined skill, than for Campbell's exceptionally rapid progress in the art of the game. It would disappoint all students of racquets were suc- cess to come too quickly even to a player of such poten- tial possibilities as Campbell. Their match was intensely enjoyable, on account of the merit of individual performance, as well as for the com- parisons offered in method and disposition. It may be said at once that Campbell sustained the comparison admira- bly. Ilis is a style which, with the added experience that brings

    Highlight: The great reformation projected by Charles Montague, afterwards Lord Halifax, and carried into effect under his administration by Isaac New- ton, was completed in 1699. The history of this magnificent operation has not been properly written by the historians of the coinage, whose attention has been too much engrossed by questions of head and tail. Even the records of the Mint are far from sufficient on this important point. We know that the main body of the imperfect gold was called in, though some of the old caroluses and jacobuses were in circulation for nearly fifty years afterwards ; we know also that the silver was thoroughly and radically reformed.
