to a sentiment of gratitude on
the part of Queen Victoria, it having
been one of the tiret honors that she
bestowed, after her accession to the

and Duchess uf Kent, which enabled
sheas to leave the German town in
which they a-ere living, and to come to

In view of the well known ambition
of her unele. Ernest Duke of Cumber?
land, to secure the throne of England,
supported as he was by a considerable
portion of the Tory aristocracy, and by
the Order of Qraftgemen. of which he
was the grand master. It was a matter

Nor was this the only occasion on
which Matthew Wood came to the

the time, it was Matthew Wood who

tune of Sir Matthew Wood has entire?
ly vanished. Us remnants disappeared I

I The name of the first baronet's wife.

proceeded to Westminster in state, by !
water, on the day of their inauguration,
Grandduke Cyril of Russia, who
stands third in the line of succession
to the throne, is once more in trouble
with his cousin, the Czar. The latter
insists that the princes of bis house
who bold commissions either in the
army or the navy, should at any rate
make a pretense of fulfilling their!
datlas in connection therewith. j
Recently the grandduke. who has not I
done any service in the navy since the'
sinking of the Petropavlovsk at the
entrance of port Artnur eight years
I ago, was called upon to go to sea and
I ? .? assigned to the command of the
cruiser Oleg, with directions to cruise
about on her for a period of eight j
: mootha preliminary to MS advancement ]
to the rank of admiral.
Cyril, who has been divMitg his time
between Paris the South of Franc--.1
his mother-4n-taw's palace at Coburg, i
and his own palace at St. Petersburg,
with no care beyond that of his hand?
some and fascinating wife, the divorced
ex-Grandduchess of Hesse, did not rel?
ish the idea of being cooped up on board
a 11 II I es l tof seveial mourns, separated
rrom his family and from his friends,
far away from his accustomed haunts.
UM pleasures to which he
was habituated.
So after taking up the command of
his cruiser at Reval. he, even before
the veaael left port, declared that he
was sufficiently ill to need the advice
of physicians. These furnished him
.?.-Ith a certificate to the effect that ow?
ing to the exertions which he had exer
t?Ti.ffirttMr*! wan me prepara
rj of the Oleg for its long cruise,
e?ed w.th the effects of the shock
which he sustained ln the sinking of
j the Petropavlovsk eight years ago. It
was absolutely necessary for the re-:
oovery of his health that he should
have a complete rest for several months
in a temperate okbnate. preferably in
the South of France. In consequence
of this the grandduke has resigned his
command, and has rejoined his wife
and children in Paris, preparatory to
going to the Riviera for the winter.
The grandduke, who, like his late
father. Vladimir, la a very handsome
man. was not wounded, as eo many
people appear to believe, in* the slnk
| ing of the Petropavlovsk off Port Ar?
thur. It may be recalled that the ship
struck a mine and sank, carrying down
with her Admiral Maknaroff and the
painter Verestchagin. who was also on
1 the vessel. Only two-score of those on
? board, numbering 700 officers and men.
escaped, by coming to the surface and
hanging on to pieces of wreckage.
Among the number was Grandduke
When the Csar finally, at the Instance
of the late King Edward and of his
aunt. Queen Alexandra, reluctantly con?
sented to pardon his other cousin,
Grandduke Michael Mlchaelaiovitoh.
and to restore him to his prerogatives
as a prince of the blood and to his
rank in the army, at the same time
! repealing the order of banishment
which had been issued against him, he
subsequently demanded that Michael,
who bad been so long absent from Rus?
sia, should rejoin his regiment sta?
tioned at Kleff, and put in a term of
duty therewith, so as to qualify him?
self for promotion.
The grandduke was perfectly ready
' to do this, but his morganatic wife.
Countess Terby. for marrying whom he
had quarrelled with all his family,
would not bear of burying herself ln
a provincial Russian town, so far
away from the pleasures of Paris, Lon?
don and the South of France. As a
result, he once more incurred the dis?
pleasure of the Emperor and still re?
mains to all Intents and purposes an
exile from his native bind, having to
content himself with the military rank
and uniform of a mere captain.
