TRAGIC STORY OP THE AN
The Dacheaa of . Marlboroajrli Drtaka
from tbe Spring Erected by Henry
I to tbe Woman Who Shared Bit
Americans are notably pleased be
cause the emperor of Germany singled
out the duchess of Marlborough (Con
suelo Vanderbilt) for especial honors
during his recent visit to England. He
declined to visit Lord Rosebery and
the duke of Devonshire, but found
time to see the rich young American
duchess and enjoy himself in her so
ciety at Blenheim palace. Which indi
cates that the former New York girl
holds an influential position in Eng
lish social and political affairs.
The emperor must have found much
to interest him on his visit. The Marl
boroughs live in a palace more magni
ficent than any of the queen's, and
Blenheim palace is surrounded by an
atmosphere of romance, history and
tradition. On this spot centuries ago
stood a royal palace, and the very
water that the American duchess
drinks comes from a spring which, 800
PAIR ROSAMOND'S WELL,
years ago, supplied the bath of the
beautiful Lady Rosamond, the favorite
of King Henry II. The story of Fair
Rosamond and Fair Rosamond's Well
is one that the folk around Blenheim
palace are never tired of repeating, and
it is a pretty, though pathetic tale.
King Henry II. lived in Woodstock
palace with Queen Eleanor, his wife,
who, though queen of England, was
never queen of his heart. Henry loved
Rosamond, the daughter of Earl Clif
ford, and to have her near him, he
had built for her in the forest sur
rounding the palace a tiny house, over
which the vines and shrubbery were
trained to grow, till, in time, they hid
It, and the king named the retreat
Fair Rosamond's Bower. Near the
bower, and reached by stone steps,
which also were hidden from view by
overgrown shrubbery, there was a
spring of crystal water which flowed
into a pool, used by Lady Rosamond
for her morning bath.
From one of the rooms in his palace
the king had dug out an underground
passage, through which he could go
part of the way to the retreat of Rosa
mond. From the underground passage
he emerged into the forest, and
through the maze from the passage to
the bower, Rosamond had twined a
silken thread in and out among the
trees so that her guilty lover might
thus be guided to her abode. So years
passed till one day Queen Eleanor dis
covered the underground passage, and
determined to go exploring through
the forest for a rival she had some
times suspected, though never found.
At the end of the passage she stum
bled upon the silken thread, and, fol
lowing it, made her way to the de
praved Rosamond's bower, taking with
her a cup of poisoned wine and a dag
ger. Rosamond, running forth to meet
her king, faced an angry queen In
stead. "Choose which way to die!" cried
Queen Eleanor,' holding out -the pois
oned cup and the dagger, and rtosa
mond, fairest of all the daughters of
England, and beloved of the king,
drank the poisoned wine. Then the
queen departed, and King Henry, fol
lowing again the silken thread, came
upon fair Rosamond, dead among the
flowers, a wreath of roses on her head
the wreath with which he had
crowned her, and the king's heart was
The underground passage has disap
peared, and the bower of fair Rosa
mond is centuries gone, but the well
is still there. Conseulo, duchess of
Marlborough, heard this story when
she went there, and has since had all
her water brought from the well.
One Umpire's Decision.
A good football story is told of the
late Mr. Arthur Budd, the famous
Rugby international. He was seated
one evening at a football dinner nest
to the Rev. Frank Marshall, the well-
known Yorkshire referee, when the
latter, after a discussion on the in
tricacies of modern football, remarked
that he believed there was no single
point in connection with Rugby foot
ball upon which he was not qualified
now to give a decision. "All right,"
replied Budd. "I'll give you a poser.
Suppose, in a football match an acci
dent happened to the football and the
bladder got outside ot the case. One
of the players got hold of the bladder,
ran behind and scored a try, while the
rest were hacking away at the case;
what would you call that?" Mr. Mar
shall was taken back, and asked for
tine to think it out, adding: "But
what would you call it. BuddT" "Oh!
I'd call It a blessed miracle."
GENIALITY OP EMERSON.
U Cearteoaa Treatment of Jastla Ka
Carthy Whea He Wan a Nobody.
"It was at a comparatively late pe
riod of my visit to America that I mada
the acquaintance of Boston," says Jus
tin McCarthy in the Youth's Compan
ion. "With my family I settled at the
Parker House. The first visitor we had
there was Emerson. The first thing
that impressed me about him was the
totel absence of anything like the man
ner of what I may call the profession
al philosopher. He talked away easily
and pleasantly about places and books
and men. He had read English litera
ture quite 'up-to-date,' as the distress
ing English phrase now puts it. I told
Emerson that I had letters of introduc
tion to some distinguished men in Bos
ton. He at once, with a bright smile,
told me that the best way of meeting
them was to be his guest at the next
dinner ot the Saturday club. I wonder
if the Saturday club still exists? At
the time of my first visit to Boston it
was a flourishing institution. The
members dined together at the Parker
House every Saturday during a certain
season of the year and, I think, each
member was privileged to bring one
guest, on certain Saturdays at all
events. On the day when I was Emer
son's guest Longfellow was there and
Holmes, James T. Fields, Whipple and
many more, whose names were familiar
to me, and whom it was a delight to
see and to hear and to talk with. Low
ell, for some reason., was not there. I
think the only visitor from London be
sides myself was Fechter, the once fa
mous actor, who had come out with
the intention of settling in the states.
I had many questions to ask of Emer
son that night I was greatly inter
ested in hearing LIm talk about Walt
Whitman, whom ? had himself but
lately introduced to the public of
America and even of England. 'A
strong man,' he said, after many other
words of appreciation and of eulogy,
'but method is needed even for
strength. Then he reminded me of
the wonderful method of symme
try and muscle of the Farnese
Hercules. A day or two later he
took me round most of the public
institutions of Boston, and in the Ath
enaeum, I think-it was, we came upon
a cast of that same Hercules. Then
he recalled to me what he had been
saying concerning strength and meth
od. I saw Emerson several times after
that during my first and second visits
to the states. He was singularly kind
and I may be allowed to say that at
that time I had no claim whatever on
him but that established by some com
mon friendships and many common
sympathies. I was totally unknown in
literature and politics at the time, and
believe I had not, at the time, writ
ten a book which bore my name."
A BRIDE IN A BOTTLE.
Pope county ,one of the southernmost
counties of Illinois, furnishes one of
the most romantic marriages in the
annals of "Egypt." Less than a year
ago Miss Nettie Clark, a winsome girl
of 16, in company with a school com
panion about the same age, prepared
each a note asking that the finder an
swer it upon receipt. The missive was
placed in a bottle and securely sealed
and lurown into the Ohio river. Weeks
passed and apparently the bottled mis
sives had been lost.
Near his Louisiana home, a short
distance from New Orleans, C. T. An
derson, a prominent planter, in pass
ing along the river bank spied a bottle
and noticed a note inclosed. His curi
osity was aroused and upon examina
tion he concluded to make answer. The
correspondence thus begun proved ex
ceedingly interesting and soon the
mutual friendship became close and
photos were exchanged. This seems
to have intensified the affections which
had been aroused by seven months of
MRS. NETTIE ANDERSON.
correspondence. The parents of Miss
Clark objected strongly to the turn
matters had takers They felt that a
marriage under such conditions, with
out even a personal acquaintance, was
far from possessing elements of hap
piness for their daughter.and therefore
a visit from Mr. Anderson was de
manded. In October the promised
visit was made, and the objections of
the parents removed, and on Novem
ber 8 the couple were married. They
left at once for their Louisiana home,
where they are settled on the planta
tion, the property of Mr. Anderson.

From Collier's Weekly: A pretty
story is told of Miss Ellen Terry. To
assist a certain charity in the prov
inces, she offered a kiss to be put up
at auction. The bidding was brisk,
and had advanced in three leaps from
two guineas to thirty, when, without
further parley, the round sum of 100
pounds was offered. There being no
higher bid, the kiss was knocked
down by the auctioneer to a colonel in
one of England's crack regiments, who
came forward to meet the blushing
actress. But to the surprise of all
present, the colonel introduced a dear
little fair-haired boy, explained that
It was his grandson's fifth birthday,
