The Head of More.
When the wine and witty Sir Thom
as More was boheadi'd his head was
stuck on a pole on London bridge,
where It was exposed for fourteen
days, much to the grief of his datigh
ter, Margaret ltoper, who resolved to
secure it. “One day," says Aubrey, "as
she was passing under tin* bridge, look
ing at her father’s head, she exclaim
ed: ‘That head has lain many a time
In my lap. Would to Hod It would fall
Into my lap as l pass under!' Stic had
her wish, and It did fad Into*her lap.”
Probably she had bribed one of the
keepers of the bridge to throw It over
just as the boat approached, and the
exclamation was intended to avert, the
suspicion of the boatmen. At nil
events, she got possession of it and
preserved It with great care lira leaden
casket until her death, and It is now

tomb in St iMiiistau's church, Canter

Its Causes. C. W. C. Its Cure

awful suddenness with which it lays the hand
of death on its victims in every walk of life'

Eminent Physicians ha-re shown that
the malady is largely traceable to indigestion,
which produces a peculiar form of constipation
that effects the ascending colouj or upper bow-
