MR. AND MRS. GLAD STONE. HOW THEY HAVE PASSED A'HALF CENTURY TOGETHER. A Brief Pen Piature of the Home ie e of the Grasnd Old Man and His Wife-Fifty Years Together Have Not Made Them Grew Old. "Do yousee that youngman?" said an English statesman to a young lady who sat by his side at a dinner party in Lon don many years ago. "Note him well and mark my words. If his life is spared he will one day be prime minister." The young man referred to was William Ewart Gladstone, and the young lady to whom the remark was addressed was Miss Glynne. Little. did the girl think that the prediction would be verified, or that she was destined to become the fu ture prime minister's bride and to share his honors with him for more than half a century. Gladstone was in parliament in 1882, Six years later he married Miss Glynne, but two years before the wedding he had been made junior lord of the treasury, a and in another year under secretary of state for the colonies.

"REFORM OF THE BALLOT. HISTORY OF BALLOT CASTING FROM EARLY TIMES. The Austs.lan System, Whloh. with Va lses Modlifeiatlons Has Been Adopted In severai States of the Amerian Vnion. Other Systms Ballots were cast very early in thehie tory of man, the word ballot being de rived from a Greek word meaning "to throw." The ballot box is as old as the ballot. The Athenians voted in their assemblies and in their courts, at first by casting pebbles into the boxes. Ad terwards they used white and black beans, the white meaning "yes," the black "no." The same process is used to this day in electing members to socie 'ties, and the term "black balled" was doubtless used among the Athenians as at the present day. At Athens the as semblies which were held in public places were separated from the people only by ropes, and when the members went up to the ballot box to vote all could see how they voted.
