In, statutes wtro framed on the model ..f those of the Knights of St. John, and 11 was decreed that tho members should I be restricted exclusively to the Ten- j ionic or Gorman nation, which had sus-j tallied great losses at the sieg? of! Acre.

Often thcao were of ? in amusing character and quite 'n keeping with his cheery temper. Perhaps tho funnies', was the fol? lowing: Archduke William was calling on a lady of rank, but of somewhat gay temperament, and with a view to avoiding public; recognition tho arch duko had dispensed with his carriage, j and liveries In favor of what before i the days of taxis was called at Vienna j an "umnumerierter"?a two-horse hack without license number.
