UP KOIt BKYAXI Speaking: of Mr. Bryan, Grover Cleve Jnnd said: "He Is neither safe nor sane"; Theodore Roosevelt said: "He Is an anarchist, and his followers are little bettor"; Henry Wnttcrson said: "He Is a wild-eyed theorist"; P. B Hill said: "He Is not a Democrat." and other men have been saying thins' nbout him until Underwood declared the other day In the House at Wash? ington that he was a falsifier. These sayings of the grent were col? lected b> one of Mr. Bryan's admirer? ' for tho Chattanooga Times; why. we; do r.ot know exactly; but when men hit j Bryan they hit also the party which; haF been crazy enough to follow him tit fifteen years, and the other party nlso which has (rone In to heat the No- i braskan even at his own game. Very I few of us can take a shot at Bryan without hitting most of our neighbors, to such a complexion hns the politics of the United States been brought by this disturber. He could run equally well ns the candidate of either of the great parties for President, so many of: his wild views having been adopted by j both. and. as n fair compromise, we j would suggest that he he made the candidate of all the reformers at the \ electlcn next year. That would give j the sane people of the country the op? portunity of getting by themselves. I and though they might he. and prob- j ably would he. defeated, they would at* least have the satisfaction of having stood up against the wave of socialism that threatens to drowp the country, j .THE AUTOMOBILE IX PROPHECY, j Many people believe that the great poets had "inside information" as to fu? ture events. This Is strikingly the case with Shakespeare, who Is popularly regarded as discerning many | things far In advance of his day and time. The case Is similar with the prophets of Scriptural times whose de vo?t vision penetrnted the veil of j the future. The work of these prophets was mainly concerned, how- I ever, with mighty events?the rise j and fall of nations, the scourge of pestilence, the waste of war. It is generally agreed that they had lit? tle concern for the lesser affairs of . life. A close reading of the sayings of these ancient seers reveals some , curious forecasts. The Kansas City Journal hns been Investigating old forecasts of the ad? vent of the automobile with Interest? ing results. The word "automobile" does not appear In the Bible, yet the prophet N'ahum says: "The chariots shall rage In the streets, they shall . jostle on* against the other In the ; broad ways; they shall seem like torches; they shall run like the lightning?" ^.leremlah refers to the "round tires. -Mite " the moon." To those who have trouble with the mag neto the words of .lob are appropriate, j "The spark of his fire shall not shine." and, again, "for the spark falleth and flieth away and lo, it Is not." "Behold." says Isaiah, "they shall come with ' Speed swiftly, and with "the noise of the rattling of the wheels anil of the lumping chariots." These references to the motor car aro fitly supplement- ? cd by the realistic description of the rhnuffetir In Second Kings: "His drlv- : Ir.g is like the driving of Jehu, the ' son of Nimsht. for he drlveth furious- j ly"; and the chauffeuse seems to be singled out in Acts. "We let her drive." Turning to Shakespeare, the many sided, myriad-minded, we find thut his vision was no less striking than that I of the prophets of old. For example. ; Iii speaking of the mania for fast ! driving, so common now, the poet '.s - most explicit. Philip in "King John," after an arduous endurance run thus cries out "O, I am scaldod with my violent motion and spleeny speed " Another character exclaims, "it shall I be speeded well"; while still another. ' bent on having a "Joy ride." says slee- ! fully, "thus we set on. the swifter' speed the better." only to say later: ' "For the. which he did arrest me with an oftlcer," good evidence that he ex? ceeded the speed limit. In connection j with "joy rides,' tho Drornio of Syracuse seems to have been purveyor 1 of supplUa for such festal occasions, as In one lnstnr.ee he reported that he bad "bought the oil and the aqua ' vltae." In "Henry the Fourth," Travers, describing an effort to break ! a record, says ot the man at the wheel: "In starting he seemed to de? vour the way," an expression equiva? lent. In modern slang, to "burning ui> the. road." This suggests one of Lord Clifford's contemptuous criticisms of a new machine: "Thy car never had ?corehed the earth." A recent emendation of a well known Clause In "King John" reads thus: "My lord, they say five cars were seen to-night, Four stalled, the'fifth did whirl about The oilier four In wondrous motion." This n<:\v and interesting version is a hy a chauffeur ol some eminence w ho w/iii made a careful study of what tho HRJiiii of Avon wrote It throws a flood of !i it hi upon an obscure passage which hns caused heated discussion among some of the famous commentators. There are some, mostly "knockers." who say that Prince Henry's grim question, "How many hast thou killed to-day?" refers directly to the auto? mobile. JIDGED UY THE SAMPLES. The New Haven Register suggests that Vardaman will be "0 counter-irri? tant for Woldon Brtntcn Heyburn, of Idaho." The Idea is a clever one; but we protest that Vardaman should not be condemned before lie is heard. He la not lacking in ability of a certain sort: he has a reputation as a public speaker; he fs an abler man than Jef? fries Davis. Neither is he in the same class with John Sharp Williams, the other Senator from Mississippi, who Is, as our Connecticut contemporary says, "a man of honest purpose, high Ideals and superior statesmanship." The Register says, further, that Sen? ator Williams must "carry alone the burden of representing the real State of Mississippi." and upon this point we would say that "the real State of Mis? sissippi" must be Judged by Vnrdnman as well as by Williams. The latter is an honor to his State; but the former was nominated for Senntor last Tues? day by a majority of about twenty thousand over two of the best men in the State. He was nominated at an election in which only white men and Democrats were allowed to participate. He Is a product of the primary system, a specimen of what the country R.-ner ally might expert if there should bei direct elections for United States Sen- ' ators. We should say that In present' conditions he more nenrly represents the real State of Mississippi than the able and respectable Williams. It can? not be said that Mr. Tillman has not represented the real State of South Carolina in the Senate, and that Gov-j ernor Bl'-nse does not now represent that State in the chief executive office of the State. It cannot be said that ] Jeffries Davis does not represent the real State of Arkansas, It Is not a pleasant thing to think about: but "it Is a condition which confronts us?not l a theory." I .lust as Bitlkeley represented the real ? State of Connecticut In the Senate, so' the men we have named represent their! several real States In the ollices they i hold, and we must look at the facts as I they are. and correct, if we can. pre-' cisely as Connecticut corrected at the ' last election for Senator In that State I the mistake It had made in the selec? tion of the sort of representative it preferred at Washington. The South must be judged by the samples it sends! to Washington. I TOO SHORT. It appears that many people regard] the sentence of three years in the Gregory case as having been far too] light. The Urbanna Sentinel says of this case: "Seven thousand a year is pretty good pay for his present position. A more complete travesty on justice is Feilem seen. This is the man who not only stole a vast amount of money, but tied to.the far West, having left a note pretending that he killed himself. This is a most encouraging experience to wicked young men of substantial means and fair social standing. Henry C Beattie, Jr., is doubtless quite hope? ful" The same thought seems to have been in the mind of a correspondent from Tazewell, who In a communica? tion bristling with Ugly adjectives, says. "When twelve Jurymen, not Jack? asses rememher, allow a man of Gregory's charncter to escape with a counterfeit sentence, I tremble when 1 think of how the same average of punishment would give Beattie about thirty days." This correspondent feels "that the law in old Virginia is no longer n factor to be feared by the evil doer," nnd that this is "only an example that other clerks will follow." They could; never hope to earn 125,000 In a life-j time, hut "yet they can steal It and be just as big as they ever were when they are discharged from tho prison." Nor is that all. thinks the Taxewel) man. "the company and associates of the callow Gregory will feel compli? mented lo be spoken to by him when ho completes his sentence. Cattle of their class term the coarse, farcical] departure of Gregory from Rlcnmond as 'putting something over the plate! of honesty.' What shame can a three-year sentence place on Gregory," he continues. "He will puff up with pride when he is pointed out as an em? bezzler, He wilt vaunt his prowess as a smart ftlnk" The harm is already done beyond correction, but public sentiment seems to hold that the sentence was far loo| light and that the punishment did not til the crime. IIKYAN ?nES i s- BAII.EV. fenntor Bailey, of Texas, has not i been doing so weil of late, we are sorry to ray lie made a hard tight against reciprocity when his party was nearly unanimous for it. and he lias been say? ing things against Mr. Bryan which have caused thnt grand leader dis? tress. But, thank gracious! Mr. Bryan has not lost the power of speech, and he has come back at tho Texan in a way to delight the spirit of even the most Indifferent scrapper. Having expressed the opinion that as Mr. Bryan "has been Ihrce times the Presidential nominee of oi.r party, and each defeat was more decisive ' than the preceding one." Senator Bai? ley expressed the opinion that It would be only natural if "Mr. Bryan would modestly distrust his capacity to select a successful candidate." Mr. Bryan retorts that while that mi^ht be !i rea.-on why he should not be a candidate he cannot understand why Mr. Bryan should leave the ? selection I of a candidate to Mr.' Bailey: because j Mr. Bailey was largely Instrumental i In the selection of Judge Parker In 1904. and Jud?jD'IHrkcr rolled a mil? lion and .1 quarter loss votes than Mr. Bryan. That seems to bo a rather good point for Mr. Bryan, and he might have stopped there; but not so. not so. Read what follows, and It will ocCur to the -ordinary person that Mr. Bryan has simply wiped up the ground with the Senator from Texas: "But that Is not Senator Bailey's only failure to select wisely. In 190S Senator Bulley urged the nomination of Mr. Bryan. He was elected a dele? gate to Denver on a platform declar? ing for Mr. Bryan and ENDORSING THE NEBRASKA PLATFORM. It was suggested by Senator Bailey's enemies that his real object was to secure a personal vindication, but the Senator must, of course. Insist that he acted In good faith. Is it not a little unkind for the Senator to favor a third nomi? nation after a second defeat and then try to' exclude Mr. Bryan from the party councils because of three de? feats? "And after guessing so badly on Mr. Parker and Mr. Bryan would it not naturally be expected that Senator Bailey would 'modestly distrust his capacity to select a successful candi? date?' " Whether or not he used his support of Mr. Bryan to "secure a personal vindication" or acted In such support "in good faith." Is Immaterial to the present consideration of an Interest? ing subject: the only point wo would make is that Mr. Bryan nppears to have knocked Mr. Bailey over the ropes. Mr. Bailey will probably sym? pathize with the view that sometimes it Is not really the best policy to be on the so-called "popular" side. TRIVIAL APPEALS. Attorney Simpson, of Jersey City, who Is described ns "a leading criminal lawyer of New Jersey." after having b.ls appeal dismissed by the New Jer? sey Supreme Court, has been called upon to show cause why he should not be disbarred fo.' making it. The objection made to his appeal la that It was "frivolous." The Philadelphia Pi c-s Is wholly right In saying that this term "might be applied to many appeals made by lawyers for the purpose of delay, or to multiply fees, or merely from a habit of mind which impels them to take every step they can in law merely because they can." For these reasons litigation Is drnwn out beyond any Justification, the time of the higher courts is consumed in disposing of ; appealed cases that are without merit and that should never have been brought before them. Sometimes the courts express their displeasure at cases which th.-y regard as unworthy of their attention, but disbarment for wasting the time of the court Is as I unprecedented as It Is commendable. There Is a general demand for less ; appeals and less tolerance of mere technicalities by the courts. If the latter will answer by disbarring law- ] yers who trouble them with such cases n great reform is sure to follow, i When lawyers are compelled to prove to an appellate court, that their cases present a really doubtful Issue which ought in Justice to have i.ipellate de- j termination, trivial and frivolous ap- | peals as to hairsplitting technicalities i will cease. A COUNTRY nOCTOn. "Gently wreathe garlands on the liv? ing's head" Is the sentiment expressed by "A Patient." who writes to the Urbanna Sentinel in grateful apprecia? tion of the services of "so grand a hero" as Dr. William Ryland Gwath mey, of Middlesex. The correspondent regards Dr. Gwathmey as a man In whose presence heads should be bared. Doubtless there are many others who would cheerfully agree with "A Pa? tient." for the country doctor la often a line type of hero. He Is often the leading citizen Of his eopimunity, working for all things that go into the common good. No man will ever sur? pass Dr. George \V. Bagby'a superb tri? bute to the country doctor, and when such praise slill lives upon Ihe printed page eulogy Of the ministering man ofj the countryside seems a painting of | the lily. A CIVIC CREED. May a community have ideals and purposes and strength of rharactei and | work to do and a life to live as well j ns an individual? Can a community j have a civic creed In which nothing shall hurt or destroy, but in which! everything shall bless and build up? j Augusta. Georgia, thinks so, anil the i Herald of that city has formulated a creed, which it suggests for adoption by their progressive municipality of the Cracker State. It is: "A community of high private and public morals, where all Institutions and agencies that degrade individual and community life arc- excluded, and ' where boys and girls may grow to i strong- and true manhood and woman? hood. "A community where every citizen shall receive Bl education which will 111 him physically mentally and mor? ally for the work In life that h? is best suited to perform, and for the sacred duties ..f parenthood and citi? zenship "A community whose government is strong and beneficent, built on the Intelligence, integrity and co-operation of Its citizens, free from every taint of corruption, whose orticera serve not for private gain, but for the public good. "A community of business prosper? ity, where leadership and capital find full opportunity for profitable Invest? ment, where l tislnesg is brotherhood, c.inducted for the service of the mnny rather thin the pioflt of the few. "A community of opportunity for every man?and every women who must ? to labor under conditions of physical and moral safety, and rea? sonable hours, with a living wage as the minimum and the maximum tho highest wage each Industry can afford, and where there Is the wisest restric? tion of child labor. "A community where adequate faclii ties are provided and the leisure se i ured for every man. woman and child to enjoy wholesome recreation and to obtain the most thorough physical de? velopment. "A community where tho health of ihe people Is carefully safeguarded hy nubile Inspection, securing pure food. pure water, proper sanitation and J hyjrlenlc housing. "A community whore the strong hear the infirmities of the weak, tho aged, and the sick, and where thought? ful provision Is made for those who suffer from the hnrdshlps of industrial change or accident. "A community where welcome wnlts every visitor, and whero none shall long remain a stranger within its Kates; where there shall be no class spirit, but where all the people shall j mingle in friendly interest and asso elation. "A community where the highest manhood is fostered by fulth in God and devotion to man. where the insti? tutions of religion which promote nnd accompany the highest civilization are cherished, nnd where the public wor? ship of God with Its fruitage of ser? vice to man Is maintained in spiritual| powe-. "Conscious of our shortcomings, humbled by our obligation, trusting in Almighty Cod. we dedicate ourselves to labor together to make Augusta a ? city beautiful and righteOUB, a city of i God among men." That Is a fine statement of motive:, a creed which other cities might well 1 adopt and strive to live up to. THE NEW STYLE IN I1ATS. Ore Cne. a man milliner, has Just re? turned to Chicago from a trip to the; style shops of London and Paris. Last week, according to the Chlcapo Record- ; Herald, ho held a conference with tho j seekers nftcr things modish In bon- , nets In the parlors of Madam Hunt in the Masonic Temple. Here are a few of the arbitrary i rules laid down by Mr. Cno: "Hats will be extremely smnll this , fall. "They will consist of the 'sugar loaf j cube, the 'steeple crown' nnd the "pie rot cap.' "They will follow the Egyptian Styles, and hair must he dressed down over the ears to conform to the stylo. : "Gowns Will be 'high.' " "Rut some of the women Just can't j wear small hats." sugcested one of the milliners at the Cne hat confer- i ence. "Very simple," replied the versatile Cne. "we will make the face over In or"der to make it becoming. Try on the small hat first, then make the face conform to the remainder of the pic? ture." Weil, thought the questioner, how is that to be done? Mr. Cne anticipated the question: "The reason big hats are becoming ' to some women t? that thav need the snows they throw over their faces. To supply this need white small hats are worn. Park shadows may be drawn in with a delicate brown pow- i der wherever they are needed, chiefly ?inder the eyes. Then, in order that j they may be not too striking, they must he rubbed over lightly with com- I mon face powder. The result will lie : that the face will fit the small hat." This caused much pleasure among the women, but the Until announce ment was one which will cast gloom ever the men. The high cost of hats is not going down. There Is to be no revision downward In prices. But. happy thought! the day is coming when the woman will have to buy their hats themselves. Equal rights! means equal duties; no longer will the male have to peel off yellow bills j for a rag, a bone and a hank of straw. In that not distant day. men shall beat their swords into scissors and grow fat and prosperous from the i profits of the millinery business. THE LOST SHEEP. (Selected for The Times-Dispatch.) "What man of you having a hundred shc?p, and having lost one of them, doth not leave the?ninety and nine and go after that which is lost until he j finds it?"?St. Luke, xv. 3-7; St. Mat I thew. xvlil. 12-14. The very contrast of the numbers ninety nnd nine and one serves to em phaslze the importance, in the eyes of the shepherd, of the one sheep lost or gone astray. God's knowledge and love of each single soul Is absolute, lit is of all the truths the most certain, j God would not be infinite in knowledge' or love unless He knew with nbsolute completeness nnd loved with nbsolute j intensity every single soul. Surely It i is of all truths the most sustaining, for It means that any solitnry soul who nt any time has wandered from its true good Is marked and missed and! wanted by Almighty God. If we go Into a great city nnd watch: the stream of lives, some toilworn and anxious, others noisy and llghthearted, , j and think of all the histories of love and hope, of struggle and sorrow. Is there not a pathos which would be too \ polsnnnt in its appeal unless one's own answering pity were hut a feeble re j flection of the infinite pity In the heart j of the Eternal? And somewhere, with i drawp from this busy scene, in a gar r, ret, perhaps, in some back street, a j young girl lives, tasting the bitterness < of the dregs of that cup of sin which when she first put It to her lips was bright and sparkling. Then we re? member that even this single strayed child of iris is to the Eternal God as I the one sheep lost to the watchful; shepherd. All of us hnVe moments t when the sense of loneliness Is borne, i In upon the soul; the feeling comes that our life stands apart; its burden of sin or longing is unshnred by others here, and then comes that wcjridcrftil comfort, born of faith, that one heart j understands; thnt in our Father wo I have sympathy nnd strength and thnt the hand of eternal compassion In outstretched to us. A human heart might and often does I possess understanding to mark the . wandering of a human soul, and apnln often possesses enough love to j pity the wanderer. But God's lncarna j tlon in Jesus, the Saviour, reveals to ' us infinite knowledge nnd love, not j merely marking and missing, but going after the sou) that has strayed. H 'reveals the cu mal companion coming 1 to seek and to save thnt which Is lost. Man knows In his conscience when he has wandered. The restlessness of j his heart, the inevitable sigh which I rises from It when. In a moment of quiet ho reviews the Btory of hie lifo. Elve him this knowledge. Wo can Judge ourselves, but we cannot redcom ourselves. We know when wo have wandered, but we cannot always ac- ' complJsh our return by ourselves. Wo can know, though, that at such times our Father In Heaven knows and cares and Is all-powerful to forglvo and to redeem. Tho early Christians loved to lmug | Ine and portray the Redeemer ns the strong and kindly shepherd. "The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can 1 lack nothing." The Good Shepherd came to us that tlrst Christmas morn-j Ing and took that weary stretch of j long vigils, weariness and disappoint? ments, even betrayal by His disciples. [and agony In tho garden, the shame of Calvary, nnd that last awful desert, void of the very sense or the Father's j presence, from which His cry rosc:| "My God! My God! Why hnst Thou' forsaken Me?" I lie made all that long .tourney sol that no one lost anywhere In the des? ert of sin or sotrow should ever doubt ; but that the Shepherd was at hand. ! who had gone nDer him until He found him. Let US comfort ourselves by the , knowledge that there is no distance j from which, by the power of His re? deeming grace, we may not mako our return to God. There Is. however, one limit which this grace cannot overpass ? that Is the lack of desire on the part of tho wanderer to return; the soul which, in spite of all ills seeking, says: "1 will not have Thee." All that infinite love can do to bring back each wan- ' derer will he done, and we must trust to the uttermost a love which showed the measure of Its longing on the j cross. j "And when he hath found It he lay-j eth It on his shoulders, rejoicing. . . .; He calleth together his friends and ; neighbors, saying unto them: Rejoice with me. for 1 have found my aheop that was lost." ". . . Even so there shall be joy In Heaven over one sinner that repentoth." Is It not a wonderful thought that even we can cause "Joy In Heaven" and that v*f will do so, not by our suc? cess, our fame or our wealth, but by that penitence with which In the se? crecy of our souls we respond to the seeking Son of God and allow Him to find us and bring us back to Himself? And this blessed privilege 1.? for all of us who will accept It. Not long ago a priest of Bridgeport. Connecticut, soundly scored the peo? ple who make a pageant of death. He gave as an Illustration the rase of a poor family who spent the savings of a lifetime and went Into debt for a }2.oan funeral, when one costing $200 would have been quite sufficient and In keeping with the clrcumstaner-M of the family. There is n great deal of truth In tho priest's criticism. It Is a rule of the prison at Chll llcothe. Ohio, that all prisoners upon incarceration shall take n bath. The other day John Farsons was arrested for a minor offense. He was ordered to bathe. He refused, pleading the statute of limitations, as he had not. bathed for fifteen years. The guards insisted on the bath. John would not take it, and before the guards could stop him he had cut his throat. He died shortly afterward. He was a ne? gro, probably from Charlotte. "A time for common sense." says Col? onel Bailey, of Governor Hooper's per? sonal staff, In the Houston Post, In view of the special session of the Texas Legislature, which is to be held. All times are times for common sense; but where Is such a Virginian trait to be found in the State of Texas? No; Vardaman was not born In North Carolina. The Houston Post says that he Is a native of Texas. The m'stake that was made In tho case of Upton Sinclair Is that they did ? not keep him in long enough. Voice of ? the People The Grateful Words of n Negro. To the Editor of The Tlmes-Dlspatch: i Sir,?That you may not be deceived, I take tue liberty to write and say that I am a negro, employed In the Forestrv Service of the United states, looking" after the Interests of the negro In this department. In my investigation my eye caught1 sight of an editorial from your paper | anent ihe late Edward Brown, a negro j who was a very useful man, and which i was reproduced by the Southern Workman In its November Issue of 1010. As a negro, and one who believes thoroughly In the friendship of the Southern man towards my people, I wish to demonstrate tn you and all other Southern men who, like your? self, believe thai all of us are not as bad as some may think, and at tho same time extending to you m.V appre? ciation of your good will: for, indeed, no one but a thoroughly honest-minded gentleman would have written such an editorial In behalf of a dead negro. My best friend was a Southerner, a Confederate, and a Virginian, in the person of the late Bishop T. II. Dudley, rslshop of Kentucky, and I can assure you, sir. that I entertain the highest esteem nnd affection for the Southern people, and In my preaching and teaching to my people I have never failed to tell them that the Southland was our home, antl that our true: friends are the Southern people. In this I am aware that we havej some had negroes, and the South or the North Is too good for their pros-, , ence, in consequence of which that, class of negroes should not be al- : lowed to remain where fjood negroes | arc located. Bad negroes arc to be] found anywhere, but It Is our duty as| good citizens to co-operate with the ? white people and bring to justice those! depraved negroes who wantonly and 1 viciously violate the law of the land] nnd tho rules of the community In which they live. I fee! proud, sir, of that tribute you I paid lo the late Edward Brown. It will live as long as life lasts, and be? lieve me, dear sir. Your obedient servant, W. D JOHNSON. Agent Forest Service. P.

PRINCESS JULIANA SCORNS NEW DOLLS BY LA MARQUISE r?E FOXTENOY. PRINCESS JULIANA of Holland, r.ext heir to the throne of the Netherlands, and aged about two. Is reported in the cable dis? patches 01 last week to have displayed contemptuous indifference, not to say worse, for tho three superb dolls, dressed to the very height of ParlBlan fashion, one of them in hobble and another In harem shirts, contained in the Interior of the large and beauti? ful mechanical swan presented to her l<y ('resident Falliferes, on the occasion of his recent visit to her mother. Queen Wilhelmine, in Amsterdam, and at the Hague. Indeed, the young princess is stated to have tlunR the President's dolls contemptuously aside, and to luive manifested her very pronounced pre? ference for her old nnd battered doll In Dutch costume. Whether or not this Is likely to affect the future relations of France and of the Netherlands, remains to be seen. For, idolizing her little daught? er as she decs. Queen Wilhelmine is naturally disposed to feel kindly to? wards those who give the child pleas? ure, and equally strongly prejudiced against those who for one reason or another fall to succeed In this particu? lar respect. Toys play. In fact, a very notable role in international relations nowadays, when the heirs apparent ol so many Old World thrones are In childhood or In Infancy, if the royal parents' heart can be won by pleas? ure given to their little ones, half the cause is won; whereas If the child la disappointed in the presents, its par? ents are liable to conceive a feeling of resentment against the donor. Much of the hesitation of the Rus? sian government to Join bands with France In that alliance which still exists was dispelled by tne particular? ly beautiful and costly presents brought, first of all by President Faure. then by President Loubet. and last by President Fullleres, to the children ot the Czar. In fact. In 1!?0S President Failleres completely won the heart of the little Czarevitch by presenting him. on the occasion of his visit t? Reval, with a railroad train valued at $2.000. and was immediately dubbed by the prlncelet as "the train man. President Loubet, when he went to Rome, took with him no less than five big packing cases of toys, for the young princesses. Yolande and Mafalda, the feature of the lot being the en? tire dining-room set and kitchen which, though In the nature of a doll's house, had nevertheless chairs and benches of a sulllcient size to seat the at that time small princesses. The cupboards of the dining-room were filled with the necessary table linen, all beautifully embroidered with tho monogram and crown of Princess Yolande. The table silver and dishes, also the china, were decorated in tho same way. The dining-room nnd kitch? en were of the Normandy style, and ns the presiding genius thereof was a huge doll, as big as Princess Yolande herself, In the lull costume of a Nor? mandy peasant, with Jewelry and gold ornaments complete. This doll was seated on a toy horse, as if going to market, and the market baskets on either side of the toy steed were fill? ed with more toys of every conceiv? able character. Thanks to this, the memory of good old President Loubet has never yet faded from the minds of Princesses Yolande and Mafalda, and no matter what may happen in a political sense, the party at Rome which Is In favor of a close under? standing between Italy and France. I will always be able to count upon vigorous support, and even champion? ship of their cause, in the royal school rooms and nurseries of the Qulrinnl. Not long after the accession' of the present Emperor of China, the Czar dispatched a special embassy to Pekin. headed by his general aide-de-camp.
