the crown prince was a small boy.
One day her husband, who was an authority-
upon certain phases of Interna
tional law. then occupying the attention
of Germany, was sent for by the Kaiser.
"When he was In the palace and ascend
ing the stairs leading to the audience
room, he was suddenly confronted by the
little crown prince riding madly down on
the balustrade and saluting as he rolled
off at the bottom, to be caught by .a
servant and carried back, howling and

about the subject or international law,
for he spent an entire hour In a. disserta
tion on the necessity of parental dis
cipline. It has been reported from time to time
that the Kaiser has had various quarrels
with the crown prince, mainly on ac
count of the latter' s somewhat uncon
ventional ways. And certainly Frledrlch
VilheIm Is, or has been, something of a
madcap. Judging- by the stories told.
Here is one Incident:
One evening the crown prince start
ed a series of bicycle ruces round and
round the pier at the little resort on the
Baltic where he was staying and the
nest night several of his friends came
upon the scene with wheelbarrows. A
well known duchess was taking a ride.

row, -when suddenly he tumbled over
Into the sea and was rescued in the
midst of homeric laughter, which re
doubled when he declared that he and
the duchess had arranged the whole

sip about Prince Henry of Prussia's re
cent visit to England, and several Jour

tance to the trip. The fact Is that Prince
Henry went there on private business.
which occupied most of his time during
his stay in London, and he saw a good
deal of Prince and Princess Louis of
Battenberg. He went to Sandrlngham
one day to dine and sleep at York Cot
tage, and nhilo there he paid a visit
to Queen Alexandra at the Hall.
Prince Henry is devoted to his profes
sion and has never put himself forward

policy In the younger brother of a pow
We read often that Prince Henry of
i'russla does not care for shooting, and
we have heard all about his alleged an
swer to Queen Victoria's question as to
what luck he had when out deer-stalking.
"I did not succeed In killing a
stag, but I hit quite a number." Is said
to have been the reply. It Is too bad that
Prince Henry should be made to appear
ridiculous In this fashion. The Inci
dent to which reference Is made is sup
posed to han. occurred years before he
was bom. A German prince, long since
deceased, was said to have Informed
Queen Victoria that "he had not killed"
a stag, but he rad wounded two."
This story has been told over and
over again, the scene being laid in a
dozen different forests. I do not believe
that any German prince ever would
have made so idiotic a remark. The
Hohenzollem princes aro brought up to
understand all the niceties of the chase
and they have a thorough acquaintance
with all the rules of deer shooting.
The late Baron Marschall von- Bieber-j
stein, because of his career at Con
stantinople, was taken to have been Ger
many's foremost authority on the near
Eastern question. And yet those familiar
with Germany's foreign policy know that
.on Klnderlen-Waechter. the Kaiser's
secretary of foreign affairs, who re
cently died suddenly, in reality pos
sessed a far more intimate and compre
hensive familiarity with the Balkan sit
uation. For a number of years he served
his master as minister to small and ap
parently Insignificant Roumania. Com
pared to the prominent mission to Con
stantinople, the Bucharest representation
did appear Inconspicuous, and no doubt
this was the cause of the widespread
rumor that the Emperor had sent his
college chum and intimate friend out
there, so to say, into exile, because he
had fallen from grace.
Nothing could have been farther re
moved from the truth. Von Klnderlen
Waechter was the one man needed in
that locality, for the King of Boumanla
is a Hohenzollem and kin to the Kaiser,
the only one in whom Germany could
place confidence in the game of chess
between the Balkans and Turkey and
the Balkan nations among themselves.
Without attracting "attention In the
chancelleries of Europe, von Klnderlln
Waechter thus was enabled to familiarize
himself as to the true conditions, and no
move was made in Berlin that did not
have Its conception in Bucharest. If it
pertained to the near Eastern question.
Probably there was no other diplomat
who possessed his masters ear and con
fidence to the same degree as that en
joyed by the late minister, and no sooner
had the present imbroglio begun In 1910,
with the annexation bj Austria-Hungary
of Bosnia and Herzegovina, when the
"obscure" minister was recalled from
Bucharest and placed in full charge of
the German foreign office. We all know
how successful he has been In averting
n war which then threatened because of
Austria's unwarranted proceeding. He
was no less successful In settling the
Morocco issue with France In a manner
so satisfactory that the relations between
these two fire-eating neighbors never

PICK NORMAN TABOR
TO SET MILE MARK
Sprint at the Finish Featuref the
Work of the Runner from
It is the opinion of many athletic
critics that Norman Tabor, of Brown
iTnivoraitv will not onlv be the next
Intercollegiate one-mile champion, but
the recordholdcr, as well. The present
mark of 4:13 3-5 is held by Jonn raui
Jones, of Cornell
Just whether Tabor will succeed In
winning the championship depends on
his success In the intercollegiate cham
nlonshlDS. There Is no denying the fact
that he seems to possess the speed and
stamina which are essential to achiev
ing the goal, but his one weak point
is that he Is Indifferent so far as run
ning is concerned. That Is, when he
goes Into a race It is not with the In
tention of going after a record.
Charley O'Connor, the noted coach of
the Brown University athlets, has had
considerable trouble In Impressing upon
Tabor the necessity of his doing his level
best when competing In a race, and that
he should always mal.e It his business
to keep near the front, with the rest
of the star athletes, particularly when
he has such a well-known runner as
John Paul Jones as his opponent.
In the last Intercolleglates. Tabor fol
lowed the advice of his coach, and, as a
result, he and Jones crossed the tape on
even terms, running a dead heat In the
excellent time of 4:20 1-5.
Previous to that occasion Tabor had
the habit of holding back until he en
tered the last quarter of the race, de-
pending then on a sprint to enable him
to cross the (ape a winner.
His ability to spurt after running
three-quarters of a mile Is remarkable,
for he lets loose with the speed of a
There is no denting the tact that
Tabor s sprint Is the greatest of any
athlete In the world at the present time.
So great is his speed In the last lap
that It is very seldom that he Is not
among the leaders at the finish.
In one run, in particular. Tabor was
running In twenty-sixth place at the
three-quarter mile mark. He started his
famous sprint at the point and managed
to finish in second place.
As a rule, mile runners are unable to
go at full speed in the last quarter. They
set a fast pace as they start on their
last leg. but it is not very often that
they sprint until the 20-yard mark is
reached. On the other hand. Tabor sets
the pace as soon as the third-quarter is
reached, and goes at full speed until he
crosses the finish mark.
Tabor has an unusually easy stride,
resembling very much that of Bonhac.
and for that very reason It is surpris
ing that he covers the first three-quar
ters in poor time, that Is, as compared
to his last quarter.
Tabor, as a rule, covers six furlongs
In no better time than 3:24, and runs
the final 449 yards In 55 seconds. He ha
negotiated the three-quarters In prac
tice in 2:15. and the mile in 4:19, with
This gives the impression that It
would be possible for him to cover the
three-quarters In even less than 3:15. and
still possess enough endurance to per
mit him to make use of his famous
sprint through the final quarter, and
break the mark for one mile even with
such a noted runner as John Paul Jones
competing against him.
McGRAW OPPOSED TO

plicated that it is difficult for any one,
much less a woman, to get the ins and

work, for he is always in trouble, but
It Is no work for a woman.

"Look oer the history of the big

that certain clubs are alwajs In the first

Simply because the national game is one
