A Composition


An exchange reports that a small boy in one of the Germantown (Pa.) public schools wrote a composition on King Henry VIII which reads as follows: "King Henry 8 was the greatest widower that over lived. He was born at Annie Domino in the year 1066. He had 510 wives besides children. The first was beheaded and afterward executed and the 2d was revoked. Henry 8 was succeeded to the throne by his great-grandmother, the beautiful Mary, queen of Scots, sometimes called Lady of the Lake or the Lay of the Last Minstrel."
