DENMARK'S NEW KING.
The Accession of Frederick VIII
Publicly Proclaimed in Cop
Copenhagen, Denmark. January 30.
-The new King, Frederick VIII. now
reigns over Denmark. His accession
has been hailed with all appropriate
eathusiasm and ceremony. but sor
row-for the death of Christian IX.
is the predominant sentiment. The
overwhelming grief of the immediate
members of this remarkably united
ofmily .is reflected in only a slightly
less degree in every home in Copen
Throughout the earlier part of the
day the lugubrious tolling of bells,
the booming of minute guns, the uni
versal .evidences of mourning and
the stagnation of business, even amid
the strangely contrasting acclaims for
the new King, told strongly of the
deep feeling of the people of Denmark
for the ruler whose remarkable ea
reer had ended so sudenly.
In a chamber of the Amalienborg
Palace the body of the King lies in
the modest bed in which he breathed
hisJast. The door of the chamber is
guarded by the king's adjutants as a
gna<Lof honor. Following the wishes
of King Christian, the funeral will be
attded. with little ceremonial.
Frederick VIII was proclaimed
king at noon today in Amalienborg
square, in front of the palace. The
ceremony lasted only a few minutes.
The premier, M. Christensen, appear
ed. on the balcony of the palace and
ainounced to the 50,000 persons as
sembled below of the death of King
Christian IX and the accession of his
eldest son. The premier then called
for cheers for King Frederick VIII.
The new ruler of Denmark joined
the premier on the balcony and in a
short speech declared that he would
rule in accordance with the example
set him by his father, and trusted that
the same accord between the king
and the nation would continue as
heretofore. His Majesty concluded
with calling for cheers for the fath
King Frederick received a warm
hearted greeting from the assembled
erowd, -whose cheers mingled enthus
iastically with the national anthem.

This story was told recently at a
smoker given b Mic iniga iof. the
Universit# otlicia at Chicago.
"A young man and his wife, unot
lonppa~rried,' said.the relator of the
incidxh "lived down on the soutl
side where they had a prett,y little
two story brick. One of their yecd
ding .presents was a large clock
whieh told the hours and half. hours
-by rreans of the cuckoo's cry instead
of by'the usual chimes or the sounding
of a bell. One night the college fra
ternity of which the man was a mem
ber, gave a banquet, and it was ac
cordingly late when he arrived at the
front. door of his home. He thought
that discretion was the better part of
valor, so that when he got inside he
began to remove his shoes before go
ing up the stairs. Unfortunately he
was not very happy in the execution
of this act, for one of his shoes slip-.
ped and made a noise that could be
heard all over the house. A moment
later his wife's voice came from the
head of the- stairway:
" Is that you, Charles?'
' What time is it. Charles?'
" And then,' said Charles in tell
ing the incident afterwards, 'that
blamed clock began to cry out. But
it euckooed only three times and I
had to stand there like a fool and
cuckoo the other nine.' ''
This delightful weather sugests
