dote 01 Sir Robert Strange is related by the
late Richard Cooper, who instructed Queen
Charlotte in drawing, and was for sometime
drawing master to Eton school : "Robert
Strange was a countryman of mine, a North
Britoil, who served his time to my father
as an engraver, and wasa soldier in the rebel
army of 1745. hso happened, when Duke
dlimn put them to flight. that Strange,
finding a door open, made his way into the
house, ascended to the first floor, and en
tered a room where a young lady was sea

ing. Young Strange implored her protec
tion. The lady, without rising, or being
the least disconcerted, desired him to get
under her hoop. He immediately stooped,
and the amible woman covered hint up.
Shortly after this, the house was saarched.
The lady' continued her work as before;
and the soldiers, upon entering the room,
' considering Miss Lumsdale alone, respect
fully retired. Robert, as soon as the search
was over, being released from his covering,
kissed the hand of his protectress; and
at that moment, for the first time, he found
himself in love. He married the lady ;
and no person, beset as they were with ear
ly difficulties, lived more happily. Strange
afterwards became a loyal matt, though for
a long time he sighed to be pardoned by his
King; who, however, was gracithisly pleas
ed to be reconciled to him, and afterwards
knighted him.

game of chess which. had !mess shisised- for
his amusement. that . he &sired the inven

opher, however, was too modest to seize
the apportunity of enriching himself: he
merely begged of his royal master a grain
of corn for each square on the chess table,
doubling the number in proceeding froth
the Orin to the sixty-fourth square. The
king, honoring his moderation, made no
scruple of consenting to the demand; but
on his treasurer making the necessary cal
culations, ho was somewhat surprised to
find that he had engaged to give away the
lit Os sib lerqtta fluty of 87,870425,546,792,
855 grains of corn, or near two hundred
millions of bushels.
