Pr. A. T. nny of the Uni

to Dr. Herman V. Hilprect. Pr. Jlll

mean that It was written about the

Hallle Ermine Hives lias just been
received In special audience by the
dowager ('/.arlna. The husband of the
author of "Hearts Courageous" and
other novels is George Post Wheeler of
New York, at present secretary of the
American embassy at Ht. Petersburg.
It was easy on account of this posi
tion for him to procure for his wife
tlie enjoyment of such an honor, but
it is due altogether to the fait that
the empress likes to while away an
afternoon in a hammock, if it ever
becomes -warm enough In St. Peters
burg for hammocks, with one of .Mrs.
Wheeler's books, that she received her
much earlier than it in the custom to
receive women WhOM husbands hold
similar diplomatic positions. The em
press lias h strong appreciation of tho
literary achievements of Mr*. Wheeler.
Although court etiquette would not
allow Mrs. Wheeler to say one word
about her half hour's talk with th«
empress, she lei the secret out tha>
the empress Is a very charming wo
man. is very handsome and looks so
young that nobody would take her tor
Hi' czar's mother, She incidentally
handed out a little advance notice
about a novel which she is going to
let the American people see Just M
soon as she lit! down and writes it.
It Is to deal with the cheerful tide of
Russian life, Mrs. Wheeler thinks that
enough has been written concerning
the- gloomy side. She is going to reel
off a nice Jittle yarn about Russia's
aristocratic women. Her sister, Amelia
Rives, well known as the author of
"The Quick and the Dead," by the way,
married a Russian fourteen years ago—
Prince Albert Troubetskoy.
It Is understood from members of
the family of Count Slgray, who mar
ried Harriet Paly, daughter of the lute
.Minus Daly, that the bride's dowry
was $6,000,000. This In itself is not
■tartllnSi but when it Is given out that
only $600,000 of this will be at the im- j
mediate disposal of the count for the j
settlement of hia debts, a shudder
passes over the continent. Persons
who have at heart the success of our
American collection of counts are ex-
Iniru iy worried over the effect of this
n-ai-stinginess upon other titled in
dividuals who are looking America
ward fur wives and pocket money. Such
persons regard it us very high lolly
that $5,400,000 of the dowry (s to be j
placed as an Investment, upon the In- j
tereat of which the young couple are
to live. It Is feared that the count Will
have to be so close In hi.s expenditures,
having to economize on laundry bills
and deny himself frequent hair cuts,
that his brotlier counts will give Amer
ica the frigid shoulder and look else
where for nestmates.

PERHAPS some of you remember
that Manager Regan of the

city was through California a tew
months ago Inspecting the hotels on

by stopping at each one about three,
hours. Well, when Mr. Regan went
back to New York lie came through
with one grand crltlciam of all hotels
in the western world and had it pub
lished in one of the New York hotel
magazines. The criticism was a hum
mer. It spoke nicely, In a superior
way of the houses themselves In South
ern California, but gee, how it did hand
it to -th" management.
Now George ('. Bott, a globe trotter
from Tacoma, Wash., who Is at the
Alexandria for a .short time, happened
to read Mr.. Regan's choice remark.:
about taverns in this end of the coun
try and he Immediately exploded. And
by the way, Mr. Bott knows .lust what
he is talking about. He has been to
Europe only twenty-one times, In

about ' There's not a better hotel in

There was a small excursion ot
northern California farmers fromi th
Sacramento valley in town the other
day, and one of them had an adventure
which he won't forget for some time
This old chap was a real farmer and
he knew little of city ways. He was
■topping at the Westminister and
when his party was not out Impact
ing land he 'did not seem to know what
to do with himself. He would wander
around the lobby like a lost soul, or
Stand and gaze for hours at the busy
street outside, seemingly wishing he
could get out Into it. if he only dared.
Finally, stepping up to the desk, the
old man, picked up a Balloon Rout
folder and looked it over. He was in
terested at once. *fe saw the picture
of the big balloon on th* front Of the
literature and could not get his eyes
off It. He turned it over. One hun

decision. Stepping over to where the
bellboys were sitting, he asked one of
them' ,
"Where, do you take the balloon!
The bell hop, thinking he was jok
ing, replied:,
> "On the roof." \ ■
"Show in.- the way up there, said
the old man.
Now a bellboy is only human, and
this one could not resist.

the elevator. I

in his resignation at once or wait until
the ax fell. He decided on the lat
And he didn't have very long to wait.
In about an hour a man stepped out
of the elevator, so blamed hot that he
smoked. The bellboy saw him coming
and ducked. He fumed up to the desk.
•■Why In blazes don't that balloon
come along?" he shouted. "I have been
up there waiting in the hot sun all
morning and there hasn't even been
a speck in the sky. let alone a balloon.
What's the matter? Where's that
young coyote who took me up there?
He said that balloon would be hero
in a few minutes."
The clerk, glancing at the folder
Which the irate man still held in his
hand, was wise to what had happened.
He gently informed the farmer that the
"Balloon Route" was not up in the
air but on the electric lines.
Then there was something doing.
