a aght which, ftr- beheld, wonld

and a faint idea of Otto can ba gu h

Olio was a kind-hear ed fellow, and,
with a 11 t'e humoring of his w hi mi,
one foil' d him far from an undesira

It wa my goxl fortune ti inspec'.

The royal palace ia a white marble
structure ot plain architecture, with a
frontage of M) feet, and the deptb
waa informed, was two thirds of the
length. 1 shall never forget the day
when Otto, in a mysierious whisper,
siid to me: "Tbe King has gone to

lowing this suggestion was eppointed
as the time for making the visit, and

and an hour bsfor tbe appo'ntei!

royal guide. He waa prompt to the
minute, punctilioui in this as in all

coffee aud rolls, supplemented by a
poay of cognac, I and my curiously-
appearing companion sot out upm
our tour of explr ration. We bid not
far to go, not more than a five-mia
uteV wak, but our way lay acros a
large open piaia Maxlun iau rintr
and the) contrast between my bumble
self, short and stout, and my royal
companion itruck n e as comical ia
the extreme. As familiar an object
aa the King's uncle wai upon tbe

glance npou bis person and ti lift I hu
bat ai a mark ol ncocr.i ion.
It seemed to me too that th's mora

the gnto swnng open in answer to his
pummriiK. "Don t be at a 1 afraid lo
ask all the questions you wi-h, and

After suitibly acknowledging this
proffered kindnts1, a tiur of the in
terior ot the palace and grounds was
mado, during which the following in
formation was elicited :
The center ol the In'erlor oi the
pa'aco, for 200 feet of its 'ergth and
embracing the entire w dth, was lorn

devious way about tbe grMiadt, a lit
