Among the accomplished Clplouiat f Ccrmuny who will entertain lrincc Henry, brother f tbe kaiser, ia Wash Ingtoti is Ir. Theodore von Holleben. the (iirmaii embassador. wh has oc cupied his present post since Nov. 2S. 181)7. lie is the second in the em lias sadorial corps and uikmi the ret'rement of Lord Pauneefote will become the dean. Before his service as embassa dor he was minister at Washington from 1SK! to 1891. Herr von Holleben Is a native of Bremen and a graduate of Heidelberg, nays tbe New York World. He took bis final degrees as doctor of laws at tbe institution. He was educated es pecially for the diplomatic service and Is one of the Itest grounded of interna tional lawyers. While at Heidelberg Von Holleben was distinguished as one of the most successful of the uui- !- versify duelists. His countenance shows tbe marks of the swords used by the CJerman students in these di versions. Tbe Jerman embassador is a con firmed bachelor. Herr von Holleben Is probably sixty years of ae. but is erect and agile, all J of a short, round figure. His hair is brown and his com plexion ruddy. Count Albert von Quadt-Wykradt-Isny is tbe first secretary and counsel cf the embassy. He Is the only mem ber of the diplomatic corps whose name appears In the Almanach de tlo tha. He is one of the mediatized Ger man princes, whose family tree is as old as the hills. The Countess Quadt Is of an ancient Italian family. The count aud countess came to Washington iu the fall of 11 K) and ooon captured the hearts of ail Wash lngto-iians. It is regretted that Mie countess did not return to the United States this year. Her husband frankly explains that he is far from being wealthy and that it would be impossi ble, from his resources, to return a tithe of the generous hospitality show ered upon them. Therefore this inter- ! esting couple have solved the riddle by the simple method of the countess remaining at home in her ancestral castle. A conspicuous figure In the festivi ties will be Lieutenaut Commander von Rebeur-Paschwitz. He entered the been attached to the embassy at Wash ington since the early part of 1900. He returned to his native land in June of ISKiOand married Kraulein Dorothea Beutogivni of Dresden. This lady dur ing the absence of the Countess Quadt Is the chatelaine of the German em bassy. She will preside over any hos pitalities tvhii-h the embassador may arive to w;;-b ladies are Invited. The remainder of the secretaries and attaches of the German embassy are handsome and interesting personages. Tbe embassy boasts of having the tall est and !est looking men in tbe corps. With the exception of the embassador, tbe entire staff is composed of men who measure six feet or more. They are Count von Montgelas. Ritmelster Baron von Kapp-Herr; Lieutenant von Shroen and Count von Armin. Tbe German embassy is a substan tial red brick mansion which stands at tbe center of the high terrace on Mas sachusetts avenue, between Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets. It was purchas ed for the German government by Bar on von ThiHman In 1S96 and Is fur nished in rich and appropriate style. Tbe suit of apartments which hat been assigned to Prince Henry's use if the western wing on the second floor. It includes ten rooms. It Is separated from the drawing room suit by a wide hall, which is adorned with mediaeval armor and weapons. In his sitting room lrinee Henry will find an interesting collection of swords and small arms many of which have played their part In the German student days of the em bassador. . He will also find a unique collection of pipes and every facility for the en joyment of the weed. A small break fast room opens from the sleeping apartment of the prince, and here is an exquisite collection of French and lresden porcelain. The ballroom of .the embassy, where the state dinner wiU be served. Is dec orated with flags of tbe empire and life sized portraits of tbe emperor and the empress. A feature of the arrangements for Prince Henry's reception is the prepara tions to control anarchistic outbursts during the prince's visit. Tbe secret erviee has charge of this feature of the programme, and officials are work ing out an elaborate system by which the whereabouts of all the dangerous anarchists will be accurately known ami Iv which the utmost nreciintiona rwill be taken to guard against possible attack. While the prince is traveling ia the TTnited States a guard will be constant Sly kept upon his person. A picked coin Ipany of the shrewdest European de Jtectives will assist the secret service j risen. Tbe finest men from the secret service of every capital of tbe world, from St. Petersburg to Koiw and from Paris to Vienna, will be present to pre vent outrages. These officials are se ;nainted with all tbeir anarchistic countrymen. Ctf der Dwiicji . haughtily . . . Touii der Tnut!"

WATER AS A REJU VENATOR Deaaoaatrattoa at Meetlna; of ew Vurk i'rlarlaa Society. Water considered as a reju vena tor was the n.iel feature of a paptr ou "The lntlueiice of Water I'pou Health and Ij.nevity"' read by Dr. A. I VoKi .it the meeting of the New York Vegetarian society held the other eea ing at I2S Fast Twenty-eighth street. bu the New York Evening l'ost. During the past yeur he said that he had taken about one gallon of distilled water a day, with the result that be bad become stronger, healthier and more elastic and flexible in joint and muscle, although sixty-two years of age. than he had been since tioyhood. and he demonstrated his flexibility by placing the palms of his hands flat upon the floor without bending his knees aud by standing on one font and putting the other to his face. He had stood on a box eight inches in height and touched the floor with his fingers. The results were produced by the pow erful solvent properties of distilled wa ter its removing from the system the deposits of lime and other earthy salts and minerals which bring on prema ture hardening of the tissues. Dr. Wood said that neither boiling nor filtering rendered Impure water safe to use. Boiling did mt destroy all the worst disease germs, but con densed the other impurities in the wa ter and made it nn.re impure than be fore. Disease germs breed with great rapidity in the best Alters and pass through with the wafer.' The only safe water to use for drinking and cooking is that purified by distillation. MARVELS OF THE FUTURE. Charles It. Dow Telia of 5fw Won ders of Wirelrm Te!ejtraihy. Charles li. Dow spoke of the discov eries In wireless telegraphy'of Marconi at the ninth annual banquet of the Manufacturers' association of New York, which was held the other uight says the - New Y'ork Times, at tbe Union League club. Brooklyn. "Yon will soon be able." he said. tc tile dispatches in Brooklyn to be sent to ships far out at sea." He declared that it Is impossible tc steal Marconi messages, as many be lieve. as sending and receiving Instru ments are tumnl In harmony, and there is a possibility of infinite combination in tuning. He said: "The isolation of ships on the ocean will soon come to an end. Ships, too, will be kept safe by a tiny Instrument to warn them of the approach of other ships. Travel on railways will be made infinitely safer, as every engine cab will carry an instrument and be able to talk with trains on the road ahead and behind it. Armies and navies will move under wireless orders. "The Assx-iated lYess will be able to bulletin messages in Chicago to be sent Instantaneously and coincidently to a thousand American cities. Marcon! may have unraveled the great secret of the universe, and your shops aud fac tories may be run soon by impulse from tbe coalfields of West Virginia. It may be a potent force which will bring about an industrial revolution and aid in bringing about the complete brotherhood of man." CORNET IN THE PULPIT. Pastor Surprised Hta Concrearatlon by riat Ing II iu H . At tbe evangelical services held It the First Methodist Episcopal churcl at Ilackensack. N. J., the oilier uight Rev. II. Bishop I.eech. the pastor, re marked. "Fifteen years ago I learnec to play a cornet." The next moment his audience wat surprised to see him lift a cornel frots his pulpit, aud then he played hymn on it as though he bad beeu in constant training for months, says the 1'hiladel pbia Press. It was another of Pastoi Leech's original surprises.

A Washington man has struck a rica Idea. At least it will make him rich il things pan out as he expects. There are about 20.000.000 railroafi ties used In tbe United States In a year, and each tie costs the road about 73 cents. Iron and stone cannot be used, as they have no elasticity, so wood has remain ed as the only thing available. Now tbe Washingtonian comes forward with a machine which will make tie? from straw, tbe cheapest material la tbe world, and tbe ties will le firm, but elastic, says the Washington Post They are made by a secret but very cheap process.
