Boehm wns still full of the subject when tho morning arrived for Carlyle's sitting for a bust, nnd to the philoso pher the sculptor poured forth his ad miration for Gladstone's Intimate ac quaintance with subjects so far apart as gardening and Greek. Carlyle lis tened for a time In scornful silence: then he said. "And what did he say about your work?' "Oh. nothing." said Boehm "no doesn't know any thing about sculpture." "Of course." growled Carlyle. "of course, and be showed his knowledge nbout things that you didn't understand.
