WOMEN WHO MARRY
ROYALTY OFTEN FIND
Wife of Ferdinand of Saxe
Coburg Suffered Indigni
ties at Hands of Members
Tho nta?rlngo of Prlnco Oscar, son of
the Kaiser, to a lady In waiting, set
many talking about morganatic mar
rlttBcs an expression which Is often used
loosely In England and In Amorlca be
cause tho Institution Is unknown to Eng
lish law, remarks a correspondent of tho
Kansas City Star.
Persons have sometimes supposed that
the Duko of Cambridge was morga
natlcally married to Miss Falrbrothcr,
but In Btrlct fact ho was not married to
hrr at nil. His and her status wero do
to mined by tho English royal marrlago
act of 1773, whereby It Is provided that no
member of tho royal family, "within tho
meaning of the act," shall bo capablo of
contracting marrlago "without tho pro
vtous consent of his Majesty, his heirs or
successors, signified under tho great seal
and declared In council."
That consent was not given In their
caro, and their union was, therefore. In
tho words of tho act, "null and void to
all Intents and purposes whatovcr." So
far as tho law of tho land went, It was
open to tho Duko at any moment to dis
miss his wife and with tho royal consent
marry another woman. Morganatla mar
rlago is something qulto different from
.Broadly speaking, It may bo put In this
way: In England the sovorclgn can for
bid or prevent a royal marrlago, but If ho
permits It the wife becomos a wife, what
ever her original social status. In tho
fullest sense, of tho word. If, that Is to
say. King Cophotua marries tho beggnr
maid, tho beggar maid becomes his queen,
and If he la not prepared to mako her his
aueen ho canont marry hor. Similarly,
If King Cophetua's heir apparent or heir
presumptive mnrrien her, bIio forfeits and
can bo deprived of no privilege on tho
ground that sho Is not of "equal birth."
"EQUALIT" IN GERMANY.
In Germany, on tho other hand, and,
Indeed, In most Continental countries,
those fateful words, "of equal birth,"
control the situation. Tho woman not of
"royal birth" whom a royal Prlnco or an
Imperial Archduke marries does Indeed
become his wife In tho sense that only
death or divorce can dlssolvo the union,
but most of the other privileges of a wife
are denied to her. Sho leaves one family
without ncqulrlng any status In another.
She does not become a princess or an
archduchess, but has to bo content with
such tltlo and precedence as the sov
ereign may chooso In his good nature to
bestow upon her.
Her children, though technically legiti
mate, not only do not but cannot Inherit
titles, dignities or lnnds they take their
mother's, not their father's namo. Those
In outline aro tho disabilities which await
Prince Oscar's bride. l
A case In which there was not only
Bcandal. but a shocking acene, was that
of Ferdinand of Saxo-Coburg, cousin of
tho Prince consort. King consort of Maria

I BEFORE THE SANDMAN COMES
THIS is the week for witches. For
goblins. For ghosts and for all
the queer happenings of magic.
Maybe you think that the days of
magic are passed. That goblins don't
spook around any more. That
witches are a joke. You know a lot
better than to believe such rot, do
You mustn't be too sure you know
it all! For do you know, in your
very block, right out where you could
See her if von knew where tn 1nnW .
there lives a wicked old witch. Yesl
A wicked old witch in a great white
Cave: and her ve flncli fir ?q vmt
look at her I t
Would you like to hear her story?
Very well then listen!
Once unon a time, in the loner, loner
ago, when witches lived in trees and
in rocks, there lived one old witch
who was greater than all. A witch
who was mightier than any other
witch, or goblin, or fairy in the whole
So great was she (hat, whenever
she appeared, all the other witches
tried their best to please her. For
you see this great old witch had a
VeT ,w'cked temper, a very, very
V ij . ternPer- And when she
eouldn t have her own way, she waved
ner arms and scattered blue fire about

'Mo gwing her what she wanted.
Now as you very well know, it's a
very unfortunate thing to have your

Now that's just what happened to
this old witch; the more the other
witches tried to please her, the crosser
she became. And more hateful and
cruel and arbitrary.
Till finally the other witches
couldn t stand her any longer. So
they met together to decide what they
should do about it.
"It really isn't safe to live anv Innc.

"Indeed it isn't," said another old
witch; "she throws fire from her
fingertips, from her eyes and she spits
it out of her cruel mouth."
"Let's all get together," said a third,
and throw her off the earth."
And so they did. The wicked old
witch landed in the storm clouds up
in the sky. There she lived sputter
ing and scolding and fighting with
darts of fire for years and years.
Till a wise man caught her with a
copper wire, and brought her to earth,
put her in harness and bade her work
And because of his good brain he
was stronger than she; she had to
obey him. He put her in an iron

her to run his street cars. He put
her in a cell of glass and made her
light the city streets.
But at times she is as cross as of
old. She sputters and snarls and
flashes blue fire from her eyes.

TITLES GALORE ADD
ECLAT TO NAMES OF
Monarchs Have Many Ob
solete Distinctions as Trail
ers to Official Dignity.
Sultan Outdoes His Fellow
When Theodora Roosevelt and tho
King of Spain recently met, a striking
contrast was afforded thoso who happened
to think of the titles which tho two men
boro. It was a contrast arising from
the opposition of democracy and mon
archy and depondent upon tho great
claims which royalty levies upon a
Tho American, who had been tho
Chief executive of a land beside which
Spain was a fraction, was known as
plain "Colonel." Perhaps somo of tho
mora distillled nobles presented him as
tho "ox-President of -the United States,"
but usually ho went by tho title of
Colonel. King Alfonso, on the other
hand, Is tho proud possessor of 42 Inde
pendent and separate titles. His list
of suffxfs would form the major part of
almost any letter which he might write.
Whatever his predecessors might havo
been, whatever claims they made In their
dignities, he has preserved them as trail
ers to his Individual namo of Alfonso.
ALFONSO'S HIGH SOUNDING TITLES
Incongruous Is his claim to territories
which havo long since passed from under
tho Spanish domination. For Instance,
he Is, along toward the last of his
fictitious titles, "King of tho East
Indies," "King of the West Indies,"
"King of Gibraltar," "King of India,"
and with a bombast and sweeping mag
nificence, "King of Oceania." Such pre
tensions lend an almost opera-boufte
llavor to tho resonant terms such as
"King of Castile." "King of Aragon,"
"King of Navarro" ' nnd "King of
To tho Spanish don this pomp and
show appeal with unction. Nor Is It
peculiar to the Romance nations, this
worship of grandeur. Tho Kmperor of
Austria boasts 61 extra titles and the
Sultan of Turkey S2.
The Sultan has by far tho most laugh
able list of names. He starts out by
being High Frlnco and Lord of Lords,
Then he specifies In great detail practi
cally all of tho States nnd cities nnd even
districts of tho Orient, and explaining
after each of tho various names that he
Is ruler of "all the forts, citadels,
purlieus and neighborhood thereof,'
Nothing Is presumed to belong to any one
else. A land may have never belonged to
Turkey, except In some transient raid
or Invasion, but that matters not to
the Sultan; he adds It to his string, calm
and Indifferent to the progress of other
nations. He loves to proclaim his re
ligious prominence. "Head of the Faith
ful," "Supreme Lord of All tha Follow
ers of the Prophet," "Direct and Only
Lieutenant on Earth of Mahomet." are
some of his most extravagant phrases.
His more nearly valid tltlo of "King of
Jerusalem" Is also claimed by his more
civilized brother rulers. The Emperor of
Austria and the Kings of Spain nnd Por
tugal all announco In their titles that
they have under their thumbs the Holy
KAISER'S STRING OF NAMES.
The Kaiser, with his love of publicity,
has 72. Most of the States of Germany
are Included In the list of the Prussian
King, and have been ver since the
Union of the States.
King George has a very modest outlay
In comparison. It merely reads: "George
V, by the Grace of God of tho United
Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland,
and of the British Dominions Beyond the
Seas. King, Defender of the Faith, Em
peror to India " Some of tha lesser
nobles In Britain boast of long lists, the
Duke of Argyll leading, with 27 titles.

BLOOD POISON HAS
CLAIMED MANY ON
FIELDS OF BATTLE
Plenty of Doctors, but Ina
bility of Wounded to Get
Immediate Attention Adds
to Death List.
SENLIS, France, Oct. 24.
One horror of war Is the llfo that Is
wasted for lack of medical attention.
Thero aro plenty of ambulances and doc
tors, but these cannot reach wounded
men who aro lying In the firing zone, and
so suffering men must wait as best they
can without water or attention until tho
battlo has passed on. In the meantime
blood poison sets In and the' slightest
wounds become fatal.
One young English lieutenant who had
lain on the battlefield for two days with
a slight wound In his leg wns found with
the limb distended with gas. He was
taken to a hospital and the leg was out
off, but he died within two days from
tho poison which had entered his blood.
Another young English olllccr had the
upper Joint of his right middle finger
shot away. Two days later he reached
Paris and went Into a hospital, where he
died in a few days of tetanus.
Tho French army officials try to force
soldiers to carry small vials of antiseptic
with which they might wash a small
wound, but the men throw them away
ns soon as they get tired and want to
lessen the weight of their packs.
A tired, superlatively dirty soldier
staggered Into tho little enfo In the town
of Vlllers Cotteret. His sonses seemed
stunned. Ho asked for a drink of hot
coffeo listlessly. Then In excellent Eng
lish he asked for a cigarette.
"It's a wonder I'm alive," he said. "I
never thought I would gpt back to the
world again. For sevon days and six
nights I havo been with my company In
the ditches or In tho woods. It was ter
ribly cold. When It rained wo could not
mako fires because of the enemy. We
could only lay down on the bare ground
In our wet clothes nnd try to sleep. Tho
food autos couldn't find us for two days
becnuse wo were stationed In a forest.
"When wo did get food we were so
hungry that wo all ate too much, and
everybody became 111, even our captain.
I was too sick and weak to be happy
when they camo out to tho tiring line two
hours ago and brought us back hero to
the village. Wo used to wish that wo
could get Into a light so that we would
either be killed or wounded nnd havo it
Tho little French soldier had been an
Interpreter In a business house for 12
yeara and hadn't slept out of a decent
bed or missed a regular meal In all that
"I'm not used to such a llfo," ho con
cluded, still talking In a dazed and un
natural way, "but I suppofee I'll have to
go out there again with my company aa
soon as we get a Ilttlo rest. If I could
only keep warm and dry I could stand all
Ho shivered and asked for another
bowl of hot coffee.
Just as he was reaching Into his pocket
to get tho money to settle his bill he fell
forward on the table In a faint. A Red
Cross crew carried him off to a hospital,
where ho could get the rest he wanted.
HI face was chalk whllo under his
week's growth of beard, but his long,
delicate fingers wero dirty, with grime
under the nnlls.
How ho hail stood so much hardship
was n wonder, and yet In France today
there are thousands of this sort who, If
tbe do not die by bullets, will Miccumb
to cold and hardship. It Is harder for
such men to face a slow and Inevitable
death under conditions which they can
not leave than to face tho end In the
form of shellfire. The few of them who
reach tho hospitals aro like the few
lucky winners in a grand lottery.
