King George's mother. The money raised by the sale of the flowers will go to Queen Alexandra's many charities, and it will surely be a large sum. The prominence of the Duchess of Malborough is due to her great activity In these and other charities and to the fact that although American born she has always been a great favorite of Queen Alexandra and has been ad mitted to her intimate friendship. Thirty Thousand Flower Sellers. It Is expected that about 30,000 wom en will act as flower sellers, and so extensive are the arrangements that the Grand Council of Women, organ izing the affair, now includes 1,200 of the best known names in England. Some trouble has arisen over the shy ness of some of the society girls, and it has been decided that each flower seller Is to be accompanied by a wom an or man friend to protect her from the wagglshness of the masses. Mean while many hostesses are arranging luncheons and suppers for the weary flower sellers, and London has been mapped out into districts for this pur pose. Mrs. Glasgow, the charming Virginian, will give one of the biggest functions in Berkeley Square.

But the date is fixed arbitrarily. Princess Alexandra arrived In England March 7, iwO. It was then that Alfred Tennyson, poet laureate, wrote his fa mous "Welcome to Alexandra."
