A DUKE'S MORGANIC WIFE.
When He liecnmc llrtr to Hie
Throne She Ilatf to <So.
I met a friend from Canada the oth?
er day writes W. E. Curtis, who keeps
well posted about current affairs, and
he told me that the morganatic wife of
the Duke of York was living quietly at
a remote post in British Columbia with
her present husband, who is an officer
of Her Majesty's army. When the
young Prince was serving his time in
the British navy his ship was station?
ed at Malta for many months, and
there he fell in love with the daugh?
ter of an army officer, who was beauti?
ful, amiable and accomplished. She
loved him well enough to take the
chances of marrying a grandson of
Queen Victoria, and there wasn't much
said about it until the death of his
elder brother made him heir to the
throne. Then the situation became
serious, particularly as she had pre?
sented him with two beautiful chil?
dren. Just what was done and said
nobody knows, but at any rate the
young Prince was persuaded to aban?
don her, the marriage was declared
"off,'' and ;i young army officer of ex?
cellent family, the younger son of one
of the noblest houses In Europe, was
induced to become her husband. These
tilings can be arranged in England
without much trouble. It is often con?
sidered an honor to embrace the dis?
carded mistress of a Prince, and the
gentleman who married York's wife
is always sure of being well taken care
of by his Government as long as he
behaves himself and prevents a scan?
So they were married, and the fu
' ture King of England was free to offer
his heart and hand to tiie Princess
May. who is now a happy wife and
mother, and is probably entirely igno?
rant of her husband's early romance.
The young officer, with his bride,
went first to India and served there
for a time, but the wife didn't like the
climate and the olili er secured a trans?
fer to Canada, where lor a year or so
lie has been stationed at a pleasant
I post. My friend would not tell me his
! name, nor where he is located, liccatt.se
the information came to him in con?
fidence, and tie said there was not a
dozen men in Canada who knew Hie
facts. The future of the children is a
matter of speculation. They arc a boy
! ami a girl. They have taken the name
i of their lostet' father and will proba
: bly never know that they are the de
' scendauts of Kings.
'I'll.- I" I Nil's Color.
I It Is a familiar fact that fishes can
change their colors at will; many fish?
es make remarkable changes. Free
swimming fishes must commonly pre
I serve their normal colors, though these
j lislies. can change; the fishes that
change most are the bottom feeders.
For their own protection from other
fishes that would prey upon them,
and the better to enable them them
seH'es to capture fond, these change
their colors to match the bottom they
1 are on. so as to make themselves in?
visible. They do this often to a de?
gree that seems extraordinary.
In one of the smaller salt-water
tanks at the New York Aquarium
there are a number of small flatfish.
The bottom of the tank is covered
with coarse gravel. The great bulk of
the gravel is composed of pebbles of a
brownish white, a sort of pale iron
rust color. Scattered in this are peb?
bles of a deeper tinge, with now and
then one of a brownish gray or brown
The flatfish lying on the gravel at
I the bottom of this lank imitate its col?
ors in their own backs in a manner
that is marvelous; they are of a mot
j tied brown, like the colors of the grav?
el, an the smallest of the flatfish is the
most wonderful. They are all thin and
lie close to the bottom. The edge of
j the little one blends with it; and its
! back is a wonderful mosaic of browns
; so like the grave! of the surrounding
I bottom that it appears to lie a part of
it. Even in this clear water, at a little
distance, the fish is scarcely distin?
When the plant was introduced,
about 1810. it was only the small daisy
like flower, now only seen as a rule
in cottage gardens, which was highly
prized as a novelty. The taste for
glowing and showing it bejan early,
and before 1860 there were many chrys?
anthemum societies in existence,
among them the Stoke Newington,
which formed the nucleus of the Na?
tional Society. Yet it was no; until
1859, when the plants suffered severe?
ly from early frosts, that there was any
idea of growing them undet glass. The
' Japanese variety was noticed in 1864
as a novelty, "very curious and inter?
esting, hut scarcely ornamental." How
little d?l the author of these remarks
suspect what a future was before the
plant he so summarily set aside! Three
years later, however, we find Japanese
varieties recommended with pompom
and incurved, and since then they have
ever increased in favor,
i The gorgeously colored mop-like
blooms now exhibited every Autumn
would certainly astonish that writer of
thirty years ago. The golden and
bronze shades of the chrysanthemum
suited the tastes pf the promoters of
the "high art" aesthetic movement of
a few years ago, which, if it had no
other merit, helped to bring this flow?
er more forward and revived the cul?
ture of sunflowers which were fast be?
coming extinct in our gardens.

AN ENORMOUS SAPPHIRE.
It Weighs ?38 Carats nml Ls Transparent
The London Tim<?s tells of a Ceylon
sapphire now in that city, the property
of Major Gen. Robley, which is not
less remarkable for its size than for
its translucency ard the brilliance of
the optical effects it can show. This
weight of the gem Is 638 carats, and it
is of a dark, milky blue color, perfect?
ly transparent and flawless. Larger
sapphires have been known, but they
have usually, if not always, been dull
and muddy, instead of having the
clear, translucent color of this speci?
men. But in add;tion it possesses a
property occasionally found in slightly
cloudy or milky Ceylon sapphires?and
sometimes in other gems, too?which
greatly enhances its value in the eyes
of believers in the occult powers of
precious stones to confer health aud
good fortune on their wearers. It
is a star sapphire, or asteria. That is,
being cut en caboehon, it displays a
beautiful opalescent star, dividing its
six rays at the apex, which changes
its position according to the move?
ment of the source of light by which
It is viewed. By employing two or
three sources of light, two or three of
these stars can be simultaneously
seen in the gem. By further cutting,
it is said that the beauty of this stone
could be still more increasedi but, of
course, at the expense of its size.
Luminous paint is used more in the
country than in the city, but its use
generally is increasing. It is used in
cities in dark scenes in theaters, and
dancers' costumes are coated with it.
Luminous paint is used for the illumi?
nation of doctors' signs, and of street
numbers, and night hells, and keyholes
and door knobs, and it is used to paint
match boxes and various other things.
It is not luminous except in the dark,
and so, for sign purposes, it is used on?
ly in such places as are not reached by
the rays from a street lamp.
Luminous paint is not phosphores?
cent, but it absorbs light in the day. or
light from electric or other artificial
lights, which it gives out in the dark;
most commonly, indoors and out, it is
used upon objects that are exposed to
daylight. The distance at which such
objects can be seen at night depends
upon their size. Luminous paint is
j used in the country on highway sign
? boards or guide-boards, for painting
i posts or stones marking roadways, and
so on, and on the water it is used for
painting harbor buoys.
There is also made luminous card?
board, which is used for various pur?

Wes Hall is the name of a Smith
county, Kan., farmer whose 17-year
old daughter died recently. He went
to town after a coflhi and found one. it
is said, that hail been badly damaged
In a fire that he could buy for $3.
Loading the coffin into his wagon, so
the story goes, he drove around to the
different carpenters of the town in
search of one who would repair It.
Knowing that Hall was well off, the
carpenters indignantly refused to do
the work, and he was compelled to
take the casket home and repair it
in the kitchen of the house where his
dead daughter lay. The local papers
took up the affair, and it is believed
that the country will be mad^ too

Frog Skin Cloven for Cyclist*.
There is a constant increase in the
I utilization of the products of nature
for the manufacture of gloves. The
skin of the kid. dog, rat and even the
lizard are staple for this purpose, and
now a use has been discovered for the
soft but serviceable skin of the frog.
Like all novelties frog skin gloves
are at present extremely expensive.
They are especially recommended, on
account of their fineness and tough?
ness, to the cyclist.
The demand for frogs until now has
been soleiy for their use as dainties
for the tables, bi t no doubt before
long we shall have frog farms spring?
ing up all over the country in order
to carry on a trade in skins with glove

Whistling is encouraged in some of

the Zano street, school, where the
Board of Education has its offices,
shrill notes from the classrooms above
float down upon the committees in
the midst of their deliberations. The
repertory includes "Yankee Doodle,''
"Star Spangled Banner" and "Home,
Sweet Home." Strange as it may
seem, the girls, after a little practice,
make better whistlers than the boys.
They enjoy it immensely, and when
engaged in these "recitations" twist
