KING EDWARD'S ORDERS.
The Origin. Romance ami Etiquette
of the Various Decorations Worn
by Ills Majesty.
When King Edward goes abroad
amongst his subjects on occasions of
ceremony, the least observant eye will
note some details of the Insignia he
wears. Everyone is aware that the
emblems of an order of knighthood
are not restricted to one portion of
the royal person; they may be worn
on the right or left shoulder, across
the hoaom, on the left breast, around
the neck, or suspended at the hip.
It Is probable that the broad blue
ribbon of the Garter Is familiar to
all. but that it is equally possible to
wear the badge of the Garter round
the neck, on the left shoulder, on the
breast or encircling the left leg may
not be generally known.
It has been said that the desire to
possess honorary distinction hat
shown itself In various shapes from
very remote times, and to be able to
wear them on the person as ovldene?1
of some particular qualification in the
individual has been an object of hn
man ambition almost from time Im?
memorial. The sovereign, naturally
leads the way; he is the first man in
the state; he is himself the fountain
of honor. But with the accumula?
tion Ht honorable decorations at all
the courts of Europe, it grew impos?
sible for one individual to wear all
the chains, ribbons, medals and proaa<
es of which King Edward is the
recipient. Consequently, a selection
only can be worn, and this selection
is governed by His Majesty's predi?
lections and the nature of the occa?
sion. Thus, at a purely British func?
tion, the display of the insignia of
British orders and of British decora?
tions is naturally the rule.
But first of all let us see what the
insignia of an order generally consist
of. In the case of the order of great?
est distinction, the Garter, they con?
sist first of a habit, collar, badge, star
and the garter. In what is called a
full chapter of the order, of the com?
plete habit and Insignia His Majesty
would wear a collar, from which is
suspended the "George" (a gold and
enameled representation of the St.
George and the Dragon), together
with the star (worn on the lefl
breast). This full chapter of the
habit is worn only on certain days,
known as "collar days." On ordinary
occasions?a levee or a cour* ? Hi>
Majesty wears the ribbon over the
left shoulder, from which is suspend
ed the lesser George (an oval badge,
with a representation of St. George
and the Dragon), together with the
star. The garter, which is worn only
with breeches and bears the motto
of the order?"Honi soit qui mal y
pens."?Is worn below the knee on
the left leg.
The badge/i have grown so numer?
ous It has been found necessary to
fasten the small ones Issued to Com?
panions of any order In a closely
packed row upon the left breast. By
this* means It Is possible for His Ma?
jesty to wear a great many orders
and decorations. For, in adidtion to
a row of, say, nine on the breast, he
can carry four stars below, a ribbon
suspending a badge across his breast?
another around his neck, another
fastened to his right shoulder, and
another to his left, making in all IT
decorations which King Edward VI!
can wear at once, Whereas King E I?
ward VI could only have worn three
or four.?Strand Magazine.
Short-sightedness Has Its Compensa?
"Though the short-sighted person
frequently beholds his fellow crea?
tures anatomically deficient." sayi
Constance Clyde In the September
Strand, "he has his compensations.
Color to him Is a little softer and
more beautiful than it is to the aver?
age Individual. Fortunately, it is also
quite as Y'slble, As a consequence,
color without, evidently, any sub?
stance to support it, is a frequent
phenomenon of the myopic world.
"Though he sees the world so dis
tlnctly, however, he yet beholds It
sometimes as a more beautiful sphere
than that which you, the normal
sighted, inhabit. The human face,
when he can see It at all is a softer
face than that which is visible to you.

comes very often a becoming blush,

We notice a dispatch in Sunday's

MOKE POWER FROM STEAM,
Combination of Kc.'iprocatliig En?
gines and Turbines.
Washington, Aug. 21.?Accompany?
ing the bids of the new 2G.000-ton
battleships Arkansas and Wyoming
are novel engineering devices looking
to Increase of economy at all speeds,
and especially at low speed, where
the turbines hitherto have not be* n
economical. The Navy Department
formulated one plan, which was sub?
mitted to the contractors with the
specifications. The contractors have
another series of plans for machinery.
The Bureau of Steam Engineering
proposes to have in each engine room
a reciprocating engine on one shaft
and a Parsons turbine on another.
The steam from the engine will go
through the turbine before it reaches
the engine. By the combination of
turbine and reciprocating engine, to?
gether with a very high vacuum in
the condenser, more work is got out
of the steam and hence greater econ?
omy is obtained at all speeds.
This device has not yet been used
on any vessel in the United States
Xavy, but it has been tested on Brit?
ish naval vessels and found satisfac?
tory. It is also in use on the passen?
ger ship Laurentio, plying from Mon
treal to Liverpool, and several other
vessels. In each instance there has
been a saving in steam consumption.
The Fore River Company submit?
ted eight different types of machinery
for its proposed vessels. One of these
schemes is to have a turbine driving
a dynamo, one shaft and an electric
motor, and a steam turbine on an?
other shaft. The electricity will do
the actual turning of the shaft, the
engines generating the electricity.
This plan has not yet been tried on
any vessel, but has been tested by the
company at Its works on shore. The
mpany's experts promise great
thlngt for the plan.

proved more beneficial to me than
anything I had previously used. TwoJ
years ago I was injured and as the
result my kidneys bothered me a
great deal. My back ached severely
and I h;id such pains through my
loins that I could hardly move. I
tried prescriptions and liniment and
took several other remedies but did
not receive relief. My kidneys were
very weak and the secretions contain?
ed a- dark sediment and were irregu?
lar in passage. I could not rest well
and if I attempted to lift, sharp pains
caught me through my loins. Since
Using Doan's Kidney Pills, procured
at China's drug store, the backaches
and lameness have all disappeared
any my kidneys are more normal. I
feel fifty per cent better and it there?
fore gives me pleasure to recommend
