ABOUT QUEEN VICTORIA.
Tare Stasias TfcaU Ar btcraatlac Com
ceralas EaataaaVs Sammlra.
For many years after hr husband's
death Queen Victoria would never eon
sent to be photographed, save in very
lugubrious trim and with the prince
consort's bust or portrait well in sight.
Much livelier now that she is much
older, her majesty to-day sits for art
ists, and some of her favorite Jewels
and laces have thus become well known
to the public The severely criticised
ornaments bedecking; the sovereign's
head and chest on the jubilee coinage
may be recognised as studies from ac
tual jewels much beloved by her ma
jesty. Sir Edgar Boehm had a 'hard
time of it with outsiders when those
coins were first issued, but he was
amply compensated by eulogiums fall
ing from royal and imperial lips upon
the charming way be had rendered
that . favorite necklace, brooch, and
The queen's money from the state is
all paid up In advance to the 31st of
the month, and so are all the annui
ties that are granted to the prince ol
Wales and the other members of the
royal family, and Coutts". the bankers,
are the only persons who know how the,
royal accounts stand. The $06,000 a year
allowed for the children of the princt
of Wales remains at the same amount
as it was before the death of the duke
of Clarence, and this money will con
tinue to be paid till six months after
her majesty's demise.
On each anniversary or the annual
celebration of the queen's weddir.g
the beautiful painting of the marriage
of her majesty is brought into the din
ing room and decorated with white silk
rosettes. In this painting the queen's
mother and the beautiful duchess ol
Sutherland, mistress of the robes, show
to great advantage. The curtana also,
appears near the queen's shoulder, held
at the "carry" by a state officer (the
curtana or curtein Is the pointless
sword of King Edward the Confessor,
considered an emblematic sign of
mercy), and In the left hand back
ground of the picture are two large
burning tapers on the altar of the
Chapel Royal. St. James, which wer
Mown out by the archbishops of Canter

ceremony. These candles are still pre
served, and will not be lighted
again until required for a sacred cere

of to-day are bald-headed and have to
FARMERS IN CUBA.
Kearly All bat tba Oman of Great Ca
tatea Ar Abjectly Poor.
Between the condition of the planter
and that of all other agriculturists
whatever In Cuba the widest difference
exists. The laborer has nothing, never
has had anything and is happy in the
knowledge that he never will have any
thing. The small farmer, the owner of
a few acres, is the most abjectly pov
erty stricken son of the soil that I have
ever met. He lives in the poorest habi
tation known to civilized man. a hut
made of the bark of the palm tree. V.e
side It the adobe dwelling of the Mexi
can is a palace. It has one room, a dirt
floor, neither window nor chimney: in
this the family live like cattle, subsist
ing upon the poorest of food, as most
that the soil produces must go to pay
the taxes. Children run about, guilt
less of the knowledge of clothes until
or S years old. Books, education, the
world, are things of which they have
never even dreamed. It Is true that
there Is an intermediate group. Be
tween these people and the planters Is
a small contingent of thrifty farmers.
Here and there through the country
may be seen a stone dwelling with red
tile roof that marks the home of one
who by some rare enterprise has be
come possessed of enough land to en
gage In cattle raising or fruit growing.
Hut the prosperous, forehanded, middle
class farmer is conspicuous by his ab
sence, says James Knapp Reeve In IJp
plncott's Magaaine. It is because there
is no such middle class, and because
the country people are either the own
ers of great estates or else abjectly
poor, that lt Is a mistake to speak of
Cuba as a rich country. It cannot be
so while the present conditions exist.
Rut with such a combination of soil
and climate as she possesses, the island
Is capable of great things. Money and
enterprise are needed for the develop
ment of its resources, and these are
not likely to be forthcoming while the
present social and political conditions
remain. If the islands were open to
American enterprise as freely as our
own territory is, a decade would suffice
for the working of great changes.
QUEEN'S PRIVATE SECRETARY
He la Nothing Mora thaa
a Mere Stock-
Fir Fleetwood Isham Edwards Is the
only member of the higher entourage of
the queen who is a bourgeois pure and
simple. As a rule, Victoria's con
fidential advisers are of aristocratic
or distinguished military conections.
Sir Fleetwood was the son of a stock
broker, who lived and died and was
buried at Harrow, where some five and
thirty years ago he had three sons in
the school belonging to the then some
what slighted body of Home Boarders.
He entered under Dr. Vaughan. and
left under Dr. Vaughan in I808. and ob
tained a commission in the Engineers
In 18S3. It was at the Berlin congress
he was attached to the special em
bassy that he gained the favor of that
best of judges of men. the earl of Bea
consfield. Through him he was brought
to the queen's notice, and in the year
c the congress. 1S7S. he became assist
ant private secretary and keeper of th
privy purse. Since then he has gone
on from honor to honor. The pink ol
perfection, always well dressed and well
demeanored. he has about him some
thing of the martinet, which seems al
most Inseparable from the successful
sapper, and is not unwelcome to the
highest quarters of the realrq. He has
a brother, also a soldier-secretary. CoL

When the empress of Austria first
married it was thought highly im
proper for royalty to carry an um
brella. Consequently, whenever it
threatened to rain, she was unable to
have her accustomed walk. She
moped so much that her hnsband
declared that henceforth umbrellas
should not be contrary to etiquette.
M me. Calve recently had an experi

thieves while she was in Madrid. Two
well-dressed strangers stole her
satchel, which contained some money
and a number of luck-pieces and
talismans, including a bunch of dried
flowers from her father's grave. The
loss worried the artiste, but when the
newspapers reported tlic theft the
thieves sent her the precious relics
neatly inclosed in a packet, in which
was a polite note b'-gging that the
finder of the reticule might be per
mitted to keep the money as a
souvenir of so charming a vocalist.
