Albert Edward, prlnco of Wales, is
perhaps the most popular man in Eng
land. ThU popularity h duo to hU
love of sport and nil manly traits
which nro particularly commendable In
the eyes of tho average Britisher. A
a youth, bis audacity and a prcclatlqn,
pf a joke, either a a perpetrator or
victim., were wen Known,
Ono of his early escapades resulted
In her majesty the queen footing a bill

In the houso ot one of tho lessor mem
bers of the nobility. A rathef elderly
countess, whoso quick temper and
sharp tongue drorfc even her servants
away from her, advertised for a foot
man. The prince, to whose ears tales
of the peculiarities of tho old lady had
come, resolved to teach ber a lesson,
He therefore presented himself in dis
guise at her ladyship's house and ap
plied for the position of footman.
Tho countess had Jnst finished her
breakfast, and, pushing her chair back
from tho table. Instructed tho servant
to bring before her tho applicant The
prince was thereupon ushered Into the
room. The countess looked him over
from hU feet up.
Apparently pleased with tho appear
ance of the prince, she &ald. "Let me
tee you walk.'
Albert Edward did as cqmmanded
and walked backward and forward
several times acroes the floor from one
end of the row to the other, now
walking briskly at tho request of tho
old lady and then pacing slowly, us
she wished to obtain points on this

trotted around It several times. When
this exercise wa completed he again
came to a standstill near the head of
tho table, where the countess was
seated. Her ladyship seemed pleased,
and wo Just on the point of asking
the young man somo questions about
himself when he shouted-,
"Now teo me gallop!"
Orasplng a corner of tho tablecloth
firmly In one hand, the prince rushed
around the room, pulling the crockery
off on the floor In a heap, knocking
over the furniture and finally winding
her ladyship up In the folds of the
cloth. He then bolted for the door,
leaving the "countess sputtering and
shouting and the servant running
about in a distracted way to liberate
their mistress and quipt her rage.
In tho hubbub and contusion the
prince escaped. The next day a check
from the keeper of tho privy purse set

wise established the identity of tho

Oklahoma Fako Correspondence.
On perhaps reasonablo grounds

fakes sent out from Oklahoma by
newpapor correspondents than ap.

country.Timo nor distance has any-"
thing to do with limit machinations.
A correspondent from ono city will
send out news of a locality two
hundred miios away as though it
happoned right under his yory
nose. As though there was not
enough criminal news, with-threu
or four hundred deputy marshals
roaming over the country, tho cor
respondent at his pleasure precipi
tates a highway robbery, a bloody
fight of outlaws, or a midnight
murder and has all the partici
pants tako to tho shelter of somo
distant ''mountains" where tho
arm of tho law cannot follow them.

lowing to tho Kansas City Times
is a sample:

wero organized in Pottawatomie
county, Oklahoma, to protect tho
citizens from hoirse thieves. It la
said 100 horses wero stolen in ono
night se voral months ago. Thirty 4
leading citizens of that county
were arrested, and some have been
convicted for being connected with
an organized band of horse thieves.
Ono hundred citizens of tho county

Perry. Forty miles of this dis

a railroad. Yet the correspondent

Where all such nows would be apt
to circulate. Another correspond
ent from South McAlestcr writes
of tho finding of tho famous Sam
Houston's Indian squaw widow
that had run away from him in
Toxas almost a century ago. Of
course she is over 100 years old.
But how does this correspondent
come to know all this of tho
widow? Between South McAles
tor and tno Wichita country,where
he states tho squaw was found, is
a stretch of 200 or moro miles.
Tbero is no railroad between. But
all these things mako no differ
ence to the correspondents. How
ever, tho squaw story and such
aro not like tho ono about tho
horse stealing in Pottawatomio
county. The latter is injurious as
well as not true. It would seem
that newspapers to whom such
news was of any value would not
desiro to furnish the same to tho
very readers who know that they
are fakes. It does not do tho
Kansas City papers at least any

such hash right back at us who
