anything that the world has ever

This speed will be attained by the

The maxim of modern statesmen

ha# not always been actad npon.
Tuere ta an instance on record, for ex
ample, of a war being caused by a
window another by a bucket. and an
other. If anybody will believe it—toy
the -having of a king. It la satisfactory
to reflect that these ware took place
long, long ago. Tb# eleventh century

dent commenced a quarrel which cul
minated In a gnat war.
The King of Sardinia, it la said, na
tdstcri the Modena* to keep possession
of the bueket, and In one of the bat-
Ilea he was taken prisoner. Ills fa
ther offered a chain of gold that would
i retirele B dogna for his reli-Hse. hut
In vain. The bucket which was at the
bottom of it all ia still to Ih- seen. In
closed in an Iron cage, In the cathed
ral of Bologna.
It waa in the next century that a
war arose out of shaving h king. The
Archbishop of Rouen decreed that no
one should wear beards, and Loui# VII.
submitted lo the decreo. His wife,
Eleanor of Aquitaine, mocked him on
his appeuranee, declaring that fie was
• more like a monk than a monarch.”
A bitter quarrel sprung up. and at
length the marriage was dissolved, and
the Queen married the Duke of Nor
mandy. Stung to mortification by this
proceeding. Louis declared war on the
Duke, and for three centuries precious
lives wrre squandered in these useless
wars, upward of 3,000,000 men being
■ killed. And there is no doubt that all
tills began because an Archbishop dis
liked a hairy fare, because a King
shaved to please him, and because a
Quern looked upon him as “a monk
rather than n monarch.”
History tells, too, that « European
war in 1089 was Indirectly due to a
window in the Palace of Trianon.
Louis XIV. and bis war minister, Lou
vals, quarreled about the size of a
window, and the King incensed the
minister, bv "snubbing” him before
the court. Thereupon Txnivais, saying
that he would find better employment
for a monarch than insulting his min
isters, willfully insulted other powers,
nnd brought upon Europe the >var of

England, Germany, Holland and Spain
on tbe other.
