H\ l.\ MAIltlL I>K. 1113 KOXTEXOV. I Tut; puzzled state at mtnd ot tnos-l Parisian dandles who so eager? ly noted the attire of tin- Prince of Wale*? with the idea of taking him as their model of "the pink of fashion and mold of forth," Is deeid- | edly amu6lng to thosj who know any? thing about tho modest, quiet fellow, and how unlikely he is to pose at, a Beau Kr?mmel, or strive lo become a] s< ond edition of hi.' grandfather as regards tho Parisian;- Closa observ era and would-be Imitators of the. Prince of Wales noticed that his coat, when he arrived in Paris, was hut-! toned at the third button only, the. two buttons beltiK unemployed, thus snowing a large expans.- of shirt-front and the upper part of the waistcoat. Promptly they rushed off t" their tailors to have their attire modified toi correspond. Their next view showed them, to their great chargtn, that the young man had reversed the style.I This time the top button was employed,! the other two possessing n sinecure.1, His Inconsistency In Hits weighty mat-1 tcr appears to have lof this observers without a guildiug star But tho prince seems to be a sensible youth, and not) to care a button about the matter. I Posstblv he has taken a ies?on from; Iiis cran?father. Eduard VII.. when; Prince Of Wales, who madr several! attempts tri modify the dres.-. of his' masculine future lieges, not one ot, Vhlch. if my memorv serves mc aright, | wai successful, although In more Im? portant anrl Weighty matters he was j aide tei accomplish an enormous amount '>f rood for iiis country, and render, services of Infinite value. This beneficent Influence he began to cx.-rcise when shortly alter bis, marriage he wEntrusted by his j widowed and grief-strtcken mother with the task of r> presenting tno crown In its relations with Hoeieiy at home anei abroad. Among Lh'2 many frulis of his example are the diminu? tion of drunkenness upon which he placed his ban. ll became no longer fashionable, and the masses followed the ?xample of the classes, so that a drunkard began to be desniaed and regarded with contempt, ajid .ntem perance to be considered "bad form." Formerly. In the navy, tho t :otolai officer who from principle declined to drink with wine the health Of the sovereign at dinner was considered as guilty of an act^ that Mmacked slightly of disloyalty. Whan Edward VII. ascene^ed the throne he notified the officers of his navy that they neeel feel under no obligation whatever to ?trink his health In spirituous liquors; that hi would feel just as highly h ti? ered and pleused if they used mineral water or any other temperance bev? erage for the purpose. Moreover, he caused .swearing and coarse language to go out of fashion. It oceanic no longer necessary to em? phasize a positive statement with a blood-curdling oath, or to be consid? ered a milksop. In numberless oihor ways he led the people in the right direction, not the least of which was his habit of regular church-going on Sundays, although he never pos id as a salin But when it came to sump? tuary matters, that is to say. fashions in men's dress and personal adornment| his flock became unruly and bolted In the opposite direction. The most nolabla instance of this that 1 can remember concerned the silk hat. The popularity of this Im-1 posing form ol masculine head gear bad fallen off, not only In England and the United States, but all over the| world, and itu manufacturers and arti-. sans were In despair, nine-tenths of the demand for their wares having fallen off. Klnir Edward, In response to appeals from the principal repre? sentatives of this industry in France and Englnnd sought to revive ihe veigvu; of the silk hat by wearing it in public on every possible occasion. For a timer he made a practise of send? ing equerries to the principal smart clubs, the Marlborough, the Turf and others, on the mornings of race days, each of ihe men wearing a silk hut. as a hint that he himself would elon one. and that it would please him to I see the members all similarly "tiled." Bill his- wishes were entirely i,rn >r?d, j ind it was not until tue King gave up; his kindly exertions In despair and1 took to wearing a derby at a few! race meets, that tnese clubmen, appar? ently by way of -howlner their inde? pendence in sumptuary questions, turned up In the newest and most resplendent of "toppers." On anothar occasion Edward niaele ?in attempt to Introduce a compromls? between the silk hat and the derby,) but 1 never heard of anybody wear Ing one except the prince himself, j I saw one exhlblteel in a shop window i on Piccadilly as a curosity apparent- | ly. It did not. seem to tempt any one \ to go In and buy. In short. I cannot ! recall having heard of any f.-ishion in such a minor matter as masculine at-1 lire that Edward VII, succeeded In in - i troduclng In Englnnd at any rate. Under the circumstances it secajs' rather amusing that Parisian' should look to-his grandson for Inspiration. ! The appointment of Miss Clothilda T.ulsl aa a full-fledged minister plenl- ' potentlary to the court of Brussels to, officially represent the republic of i Uruguay has naturally caused a good! eleal of a sensation among the dlplo- j mats, who iwlll feel disposed to treat I this pretty young girl with a gr.ot1 deal more consideration than the rep-', presentatlves of some of the South American republics are In the habit t of reed vlng. Miss Hulsl le ontltled to the prefix of "Dr." to her namo, as she has taken a degree at the Univer? sity of Montevideo. Tt mny turn out thul Uruguay hns done a very shr ?wd thing in making this appointment, andi I sea no reason why the lady shouldi not make an excellent'minister plenl-' potentlary, for although ana may. Be, the first of tho fair sex to hold such' r. position In proprio persona, all those! who have had the least experience In] diplomacy, arc awarj that women play a very important part In International| affairs: aa the wives of ambassadors, tor instance. It Is generally admitted that women possess an Intuitive insight ,nto the character and motives >.t thus.- with] whom they arc brou^.il into contact, that Is denied to the coarser fibred! and more matter of fart Intellect of, thc male diplomat. In lh^ exercise of this quality as applied to diplomacy, American women have provc-d them? selves to be highly efficient and gifted. Indeed, there have beep '>o many mar? riages i>ei ween American girls and foreign diplomats, that It would seem as if the daughters of Uncle Sum pos? sessed in a more superlative degree than women of other nationalities, those qualities *hnt arc most highly prized by envoys and secretaries of legation. What thssc qualities are, what are the Ingredients that go t-. mike up an Ideal ambassadress, are well des? cribed In the words of the Comte d< Mouy, who for many years represented the French government at Home. Among other things he says, "Neither beauty nor age holds a high place in the qualifications of an ideal ambas? sadress, provided her features and ex? pression be pbasant and agreeable. Her voice should be sympathetic and her manner kindly. .<lic should pos? sess the art of knowing Just what to sav and nothing mor.-. .She should be lever and well informed, without nnv affection of silence or Intellectual superiority. She should abstain from uncharitable gossip, as well aa from discussions and arguments, and above, all, avoid making a contldanl of any one. . . . She should know how to win the j love and sympathy of those around1 her for the government and for thei people to which she belongs, and. most Important of all, she should pos? sess in the most axojulslte degree that not merely cardinal, but I might al? most say pontifical virtue, namelv.i tact" No doubt time win show how! near Mis:, Luisl approarhes this high! standard.
