'TOOK THE DUKE'S BUTTONS.
Gift of His King Was Taken-Rifled
0abin While Feast Went on
Norfolk, May 21.-Irresponsible
American vandalism has found vent
in an unexpected manner and, as a
consequence of the excessive zeal of
the souvenir fiends, his royal high
ness, the duke of the Abruzzi, is
mourning the loss of the 'gold toilet
set given him by his royal cousin, the
king of Italy; his olothes brushes,
his comb and brush, and almost all
the but tons on his numerous uniforms.
The articles named, together with
some others which no one has cared
to name. disappeared one evening last
week from the duke's cabin aboard
his flagship, the Varse, just after he
had given a brilliant entertainment to
which a har-o number of guests were
bidden. When the evening's .aieties
were over. the duke's Cahin looked
like a Na as prairie :af,ter a visit
from the grasshoppers.
Little did the gallant Italian ad
miral think as he and his oficers
were iraeiously extending the hospi

When the royal visitor attempted
to dress himself the next morning he
realized little by little the extent of
his loss. Italian expletives rent the
air, while the duke's officers and ser
vants were scurrying about the ship
on a wild hunt for combs, brushes,
needles, thread, pins and buttons. In
the meantime, his royal highness was I

Of what use is a wardrobe as exten

garment in it is buttonless? How can
one complete his toilet without the
usual toilet implements? Every fresh
diseovery of loss was the occasion of
a renewed out.burst of ''eussin' ' on
the part of tle dutke 's followers, and
it is rumored that the royal captain
himself joined in the chorus with trui

on a little peninsula thirty miles from
its mouth. The- first land that greet

and the little peninsula furnished
them a haven after the tempestuous
voyage of ever three months they
