Adventure of a Trio of English
Tourists In Germany.
A PRINCE AND A PRIVATE TUB
His Autoorntlo Hlghnes Wat Shame
fully Ignored and Enraged, and Hit
Luxurlou Bath Was Shamefully Ap
propriated and Abuecd.
Parker, Wilks and I hart been "doing"
Germany on th cheap, and I don't
know which of us enjoyed it least
Parker grumbled the most but then
ho always did, nnd, though Wilks and I
tried to look on the humorous sldo of
things, wo lost flesh over it Wo had
happened upon a heat wavo and swal
lowed a tremendous lot of dust and
files thrown in gratis, cheap though our
tariff was. Hut. wo couldn't swallow
the foreign titles that cropped up
around us. We bad too much British
prldo for that And, as luck would
havo it at the last town of our tour
wo Were quartered on the top Door of
a hotel where a German prince occu
pied n suit of rooms. In our opinion,
three English rtourlsts were worth moro
tbnu thirty German princes, and wo
dropped our boots on the floor at night
in the vain hope that he was under
neath. But, alas, his suit was on tho
first floor, and we ucver even caught a
glimpse of him, though once we beard
his high pitched, arrogaut, pcnettatlng
voice nnd the oozy fulsome rejoinders
of his valet both articulating n lan
guage which Parker contemptuously
described as "tho limit."
It .was the last morning of our stny.
Parker nnd I had gone back to tho
hotel to pack our bags before departing
for the station. The weather wns hot
ter and dustier than ever, and Wilks,
nlwnys energetic, had gone to the pub
lic bathing place on the river In search
of n swim. I hud n letter to write,
and Pnfkcr wundercd round tho hotel
to kill time. Presently he thrust his
face In nt the door. It had lost its
familiar lowering look and wore a
bright and alert expression.
"I say," he ejaculated mysteriously,
almost under his breath. "I've Just
found a bathroom In this blighted liolo
bath full of tepid water, with a ther
mometer In it cleon, warmed tow
els on the rail, and all that. What
shall I do?"
"Do!" I replied "Get into It, man,
nnd let mo know when you've finish
ed." Ho wasn't long and came back look
ing wonderfully young and clean. The
mall had just n'rrlved and I had spent-
a few minutes over my letters before
I nlso found the bathroom, following
his directions. It was without excep
tion tho best; I bnvo ever been In,
and, .to my surprise, the big porcelain
bath wns half' full of tepid water, and
a set of clean, newly warmed towels
hung on the rail. I took what tho
gods gave nnd asked no questions, but
T wanted moro cold water and ex
perimented unsuccessfully with vari
ous levers on the wnlj. As a last hope
I attacked n cart wheel affair on tho
floor and after a stilt, struggle man
aged to turn it A flood of cold water
gushed in nlong ono side of the bath,
nnd It wns all I could do to wrench
tho wheel around and stop tho flow.
As I did so light enmo upon me in a
flnsh. This was the prince's bath, pre
pared for him a second time by his
obsequious valet It was tho glorious
certainty of the fact that made mo en
Joy thnt bath as I have never enjoyed
a bath before or since. Tho cheap
English tourists were ono up on his
serene highness, after nil. Still, I
admit, when I hnd finished tubbing I
lost no tlmo in getting back to the
fourth floor ngnin. I told Parker the
grcnt news, and wo were Just discuss
ing it with rapture when Wilks enmo
in, looking Huproraely dejected for tho
first time on the tour.
"The bathing placo isn't opep," he
snarled. "Find all the fng of going
there for nothing. Whnt dlily beg
gars they arc!"
"Not ull o" them." I replied. "Don't
you worry, old chap." And I descilbed
to 1dm the position of the bathroom,
and be wns off llko a hare. During his
nbsenco we thoughtfully packed our
own bags nnd his. In ten minutes he
returned, fresh as n mountain daisy
and bubbling over with grntltude.
"What .sort of bath- did you got?"
I nsked carelessly,
"A clinker," ho cried, "and It wns
all put ready for mo, blcan towels
nnd everything. Tho only difficulty I
had was with tho cold water wheoi
arrangement on tho floor."
"It wns n bit stiff," I agreed.
"It turned on all right." said Wilks.
"but I couldn't turn It off."
"What did you flo?" wo asked to
gether. "I left It," ho answered simply.
"What time are wo duo ut tho sta

"Now," I replied, undi we took our
