llie troojis and the police poured in i

the crowd when the beef-eaters from the :
Tower of London arrived and c-ntered tt-.e j
castle. The officers in gay court uniforms.
and the Life Guaras with their tlowing j
plumes, galloped through the streets. One
well-dress-ed women fell down in the
street and wa.s picked up dead, the excite
ment having killed her l>efore she had had
the i pportunity to see the pageant.
As the time for the arrivai of the fun?

mfiitary and naval officers in uniforms
ot endless variety.

As the coffin was lifted by Grenadiers

occiirred. The order had just been given

George's Chapel. , .
The chapel choir, ihe archbishop, tne
bishoos and other clergy met the proces?
sion at thc west door. From the organ
loft midwav of the nave and the chapcel.
came the strains of Mendelssohn's .March
from "Songs Without Words." in C minor.
Tho strains of the organ died away. and
the choir commenced singing softly the
sentences for the dead. The solemn cor?
tege proceeded up the nave. which was
thronged with th** highest and noblcst
women of England. "Lord. Thou Hast
Been Our Refuge," to Felton's setting,
was next sung by tho choir. which had
now taken its place in the transept to the
ri-^ht of the altar. The coffin rested upon
a catafalaue placed at the steps of thc
nlf;ir. The cross over the communion
table was covered with white flowers and
reredos behind was almost concealed with
sprays of fern dotted with lilios.
The Bishop of Winohester read tho los
son from the 15th Corinthians. "Man
th.at is Born of Woman" was chanted by
th?* c-hoir to Wesley music. followed by
"Thou Kno'west. Lord, tho Secrets of Our
Hearts." The Dean of Windsor read "I
Heard :i Voice." and the choir sang the
Lord's Praver to the music composed
ospeoiallv for the dead Queen by Gounod.
Once more the strains of the choir welled
iu. through the ancient chapel with the
singing of "How Blessed are They that
Die." bv Tchaikowsky. The Archbishon
of Canterbury read the Colleqt. and with

There was a solemn patise, while all
heads bowed. a few sobs were heard, and
the choir then broke the oppressive stiil

An imDressive feature was the King

the deceased. Standing before the altar,
he went through the old formula, ending
with "God save the King." delivered so
