renunciation Is exacted, the family statutes being
rootent to debar the non-r^yal party to the mar

the Duke of Elchitigen ar.d ether of these Napo
leonic nobles arc among the most ardent Royalist,
and declared foes of the republic, which they lose
no opportunity whatsoever of denouncing. In fact,
the only one of these hereditary pensioners Of the
French national treasury who has a good word
to say for the republic is King Oscar Of Sweden,
who draws 15.000 francs a year from France as
holder cf t.ie French dukedom of Pontecorvo, con
ferred upon Marshal Bernadotte. his great-prr.nu
rather, by the first Napoleon in IBM.
Some of these annuities, such as that o' King
Oscar, are relatively small. But the Prince of
Wagram. who is the great-great-grandson of Mar
shal naallllßl. draws as such an annual pension
of $60,0 W. or 300,000 francs, that Is to say. more than
anybody in France except the President of the re
public. Not that he needs it. For he Married one
of the richest of all the Rothschild heiresses, who
died last year, leaving him iho enjoyment fur lite
of her huge fortune, which goes afterward _ to his
children. His family nave received in this way
from the French government nearly J10.000.000 since
its founder first won the favor of the great Em
Still more extraordinary, however, is the heredi
tary pension of 6.000 francs paid to the aged Mar
quise de Champa«ne-Bouaey. who in spite of ncr
name, which must sound somewhatbl m
American ears, belongs IO the oldest French nobil
ity. The pension which she draws has been paid
to her family ever .inee 1735. that is to .ay. for
more than on« hundred and fifty year, end l was
originally conferred upon the widow fi!l<l . chl f en

mer the marquise only arew 8,000 francs a year,
the other T..000 francs beinc paid to her brorher. the
aged Count de SI AUlepon.le. and it Is owing to
the legal steps which the marquise was obliged
to take In order to secure her dead brother's
moictr of tho annuity ai his heir that publlo at
tention has been draw-., to this odd survival of the
days of the Court of Versailles.
It lias often been proposed to abolish these
hereditary pensions paid 10 nobles, as out of keep
inp with republican doctrines and as contrary to
commoa sense. But th« proposal has always been
voted down by that vast majority of Frenchmen

A new farce by Curt Kraaiz. the author of "The
White Horse Tavern." was presented nt the Irving
Place Theatre last night, and proved a laughing
success. The piece is entitled I '■•• Doppel Ehe"
("The Double Marriage") and deals with much the
fan.- complications as were handled in "The New-
York Idea." though with v more whimsical touch
and broader comic effects. Two husbands, married
for the pecond time, come into contact accidentally
with their former spouses, and realize that they
htiv^ made an exchange, in each case for the

TiM last concert but one of the KneUel Quartet
for this season, which took; place in Mendelssohn
Hall last night, enabled Mr. Gabrilowltsch (whom
we have had much, with us of late) to present aim
self again In the capacity of a chamber xnualc
player. Illness had prevented him from appearing
when he was announced a monta ago, and public
curiosity seemed to have been a bit whetted either
by that fact or by the programme, which offered
only Beethoven and Haydn, so that there were not
seats for all those who came to hear the music, and
good people suffered a deprivation. Undoubtedly
they were all honest lovers of chamber rauala and
admirers of the quartet, and found consolation la
the circumstance that both are enjoying so large
a measure of appreciation this season. Ordinarily
It would scarcely do to say that a programme com
posed as this was, wholly of music by Beethoven
and Haydn, could exert a specie! charm; but at
these concerts it is not a craving of tha audience
but the sense of duty felt by Mr. Kneisel and bis
fellows which keeps their programme "abreast of
the times," as the phrase goes. Tho majority of
the regular natrons of the concerts have sufficient
culture to know that they can have no longings
for new things in real music which cannot be
satisfied by such a work as that which opened
last night's concert— twelfth of Beethoven's
quartets, that in E flat. op. 127. To soar with the
players into celestial regions on the wings of th«
slow movement with its variations, and to follow
them through the audacious whimsies of the
scherzo, was excitement enough, and there was
no alloy in the pleasure afforded. After the quar
tet came the pianoforte trio In the same. key. op.
" ■•. No. 2. In which Mr. Gabrilowltsch joined Mr.
Kneisel and Mr. Schroeder in a bit of bravura
playing which took tha senses and the fancy of
the hearers completely captive. Prettier dialogue
between the pianoforte and Its companions was
never heard, nor a higher illustration of the
charm of clarity of utterance in all the voices. At
first it seemed as if there would be a want of sym
pathy between the pianoforte a::d the- viols, but
in the gracious dalliance of the second movement
there were only caresses. The Haydn number was
the Quartet In G major, 08. 77. No. 1.
