H I The pleasing news comes from Cowes that
H u K Consuelo, Duchess of Marlborough, has again dis-
H i linguished herself this time by saving King Ed-
H , ward VII. from choking.
H r The King, It appears, it troubled with a malig-
H ' nant growth In his throat, and at times this
H j t growth gets to working on a business understand-
H Ing with the royal food as it traverses the Guel-
H i phlan gullet. At such times his Brittanic majesty
H is in grave danger of choking to death.
H On the occasion here particularly referred to,
H his majesty was observed to pause in the mastica-
H ? tion of a mouthful and eye the ceiling with an
j unearthly regard. That lie was not admiring the
H frescoes was quite evident from the shocked ex
H ; prQssion that, overspread the royal countenance.
H ' , The whole table was In consternation. The royal
H surgeon was on shore the incident occurred on
H : board his majesty's yacht and the queen had
Bfc just sent a messenger on deck in search of a
B possible stray surgeon, with but little hopo of
H finding one, when tho resourceful Consuelo arose
H and, stepping up behind the king, began, with
H , out ceremony, to thump tho royal back.
H At the third impact of the ducal fist, it was
H evident that his majesty had obtained relief, for
H ? the light 'of human intelligence began to reillume
H the royal eye. The queen thanked Consuelo and
H the king laughed. Everything was lovely, and the
H goose hung high. But the roomful of English no
H billtles stood aghast; for, to quote the press dls
H patches, "her grace of Marlborough had done what
H no other woman in the room would have dared
H to do."
H Thus it would appear that Edward VII. owes
H his precious life to his royal predecossor, George
III., who forced tho American colonists into re
H hellion, and thereby caused the foundation of a
H nation of people who .are just as unafraid to
H thump royalty on the back when necessity arises
H as their ancestors were to punch it in the ribs
H wlun occasion demanded.
H The events incident to the coming of the vet-
H erans have practically overshadowed all social ar-
H fairs of the week, though the reception in honor
H of Cardinal Gibbons, which took place at the resi-
H. dence of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kearns, where his
H eminence is a guest, was one of the most brilliant
H functions of tho many which have taken place at
Hi the beautiful residence. Receiving with the guest
Iof honor were Mr. and Mrs. Kearns, Mrs. E. O.
McCormlck, Bishop Scanlan, Bishop O'Connell
and Bishop Foley. Assisting In the other rooms
were Mrs. Daniel Galllvan, Mrs. J. B. Cosgriff,
i Mrs. James Finlan, Miss Dorothy Kinney, Miss
HI Mary Halloran, Miss Katherlne Wall, Miss Ethel
Hi Mount, and Miss Margaret Gibbon.

A lot of fuss is being made by the papers
again in the affair of Miss Mary Adele Case of
Portland, and young Spreckles. It will be re
membered that the young man's father had the
engagement broken, and now comes the rumor
that tho friends of the youngsters believe that
possibly they wore secretly married. Th's, how
ever, has been denied.
