His lawyer ui.irshaled every fact (nnd some not facts) til his client's behnlf. Then ho addreMed thel jury. With a quaver In his voice and moist eyes he pleaded with tho 12 good men atttih true to send the prisoner home to his trusting . wife nnd five mnnll children. He recounted the llttlo homo In West Philadelphia, with Its pro- "1 verblal front porch; Its vine-clad back yafdH Us happiness, nbout to bo wrecked If the gen tlemen of the Jury did not find for the. de-J fetulnnt. The Jury retired nnd then brought In a ver dict of not guilty. "Nobody else on earth could have done that," exclaimed the acquitted man with deep feeling j ns he wrung the lawyer's hand well nigh off. "And I'm not married nt that!" rntlU Hohenzollerns are represented on this 1 a. sine or the Atlantic ny n gigantic, rcu- haired mnn, brilliantly educated a gentleman , U his fingertips nnd n reporter on n German 31 dally In New York city. He Is the son of- Kmhftrnr Vter0Ttt. u-lin rli?Mld for It toW'J mouths, tho mother being a gardener's daugh- ter. According to the story, and tho man never speaks of his antecedents, the future Emperor met the girl, felt In love, but did not inurry her. And their son came to this coun try to fight tho bottle of life for himself. For years ho has worked on, disdaining the nld offered by his half-bi other, the Kaiser. He Is not the only nenr-sclon of royalty, for somewhere In this world, probably In their old home in London, live tho two daughters of ij Napoleon HI the love Issue of the Emperor nnd an English governess. NAPOLEON was a queer mixture of the noble mid tho common. Ordinary clay In inoit of his conceptions, he yet roso to true majesty In others. Orslnl had attempted his life many had died In the attack on the French ruler, nnd Orslnl hnd been sentenced to death. Tho day nfter his death Napoleon sent Orsl nl'i two young daughters to school In Ehgland and paid for their maintenance nnd education out of his private purse. WHAT has become of tho splendid New foundland dog of other days? Intelll- ' gent, brave, handsome, it seems to have dls- i appeared from the haunts of men. Only tho , other day, Alan Cunningham, well-known In the Journalistic world, returned from New foundland, bringing with him a really beauti ful puppy of that breed. ltB silky hair, almost human eyes und evidence of intelligence make it an exceptionally lovable pet, and Mr. Cun ningham is perchance Justly proud of his pos session, MISS GRACE GRAY, who takes tho public Into her confidence where tho fortunes of the Little Theatre are concerned, being Its publicity representative which sounds better than press agent has made the Interesting announcement that Mrs. Jay's enterprise hns reached the self-supporting stage. It Is Mra. Jay's present intention to continue the production of standard plays until after tho new year, when slio will launch upon the haz ardous enterprise of producing new plays by American authors. Just now, she and Miss tiruy are using their waking moments in read ing manuscripts hundreds of them literally. The pile Is being reduced gradually, nnd al ready they believe that they havo found tvvo or three worthy of production. TUB news that John D.
