The Earl of Westmeath, who has been elected a representative peer of Ireland, has acted as private secretary to Mr. Chamberlain. One of hia titles, that of Baron of Delvin, dates back to the time of Henry 11. Miss Eugenia Washington, who died recently in Washington, was one of the few remaining relatives of George Washington. Some 30 years ago, Miss Washington, while visiting relatives in Louisiana, attended a Catholic mission held by the Panlists in a neighboring church, and after careful study joined the Catholic Church. She spoke of the step she was about to take to a clergyman of the Episcopalian Church ehe had been attending. He wai somewhat shocked and advised her to reconsider. She said, ' Oh 1 no, I muet act up to my convictions, and,' she added, laughingly, 'I shall pray hard that you may be given the same grace.' She returned home and some years later had the gratification of meeting her former pastor as a prominent lecturer of the Catholic faith.
