Queen Isabella she agreed to all that he asked. If he found Cathay,
Columbus was to be made admiral for life of all the new seas and
oceans into which he might sail; he was to be chief ruler of all the
lands he might find; he was to keep one tenth part of all the gold and
jewels and treasures he should bring away, and was to have his "say"
in all questions about the new lands. For his part (and this was
because of the offer of his friend at Palos, Captain

expedition and of all new enterprises, and was to have one eighth of
all the profits from them. So Columbus had his wish at last. The
queen's men figured up

Columbus," "Your Excellency," and "Admiral," and at once he set about

library books know something about the work
of Horace E. Scudder (1838-1902). For eight years he was editor of the
_Atlantic Monthly_, but he is more widely known as a writer and

fourth, and fifth grades read with pleasure _The Book of Fables_,

_The Book of Folk Stories_, _Fables and Folk Stories_,
and _The Book of Legends_. Mr. Scudder was the leading advocate of
introducing literature into the schools at a time when such advocacy
was uphill work, and he edited a great number of literary classics for
school use. He wrote a number of historical and biographical works of
value. _George Washingto
