SCORED HEAVILY ON PRINCE
Deat, Erummell's Remark Left Him
Mastvr of Situation, but Victory
Was a Coatly On.
The greatest dandy and fop of mod
ern tinmes was George irummoll,
known as Beau Bruinmmell. Ile lived
a, life delicate and leisured, and since
ho. was poor his living deIAend3d uponl
the favor of the court. Thle court
at that time was represented in the
set where the beau's influence was
felt by the prince of Wales, who was,
if truth must be told, not a slender
man. It happened that the prince
and the beau quarreled.
To be a dandy is not generally con
sidered the first mark of being a
brave man, but Beau Brummell gave
instant proof that he was not only a
great dandly but a great man as well.

vague, but the main facts are certain.
l3rumnimell knew that his quarrel with
the prince would mean an end of his
prestige, but he refused to yield, and

the prince and the dictator of fashions
had spread, and there were not a
few who gathered in the hopes of a

royal personage called Sheridan aside
and spoke to him, pointedly ignoring

the only person who seemed to be in

With a gesture of indifference Irum
m1ell lifted his glasses to his eyes
and, indicating with a slight wave of
his hand tile person to wh1onm lie re
ferred, he asled in a clear but lan
guid voice the famous question:
"Sherry, who's your fat friend?"
irunmiell spent the greater part
of the remaindr of his life in Calais,

th inemory of his great rebuke, it

he was found wantnhg.
