J world is likely to remember the importance
that attachcd to the recent birth of little
Juliana Louise Emma Marie Wilhclmina
princess of Orange heiress to the crown of
Holland
The poorest Dutch baby of Amster
dam Rotterdam or any other town In Hol
land might have been as much loved but
no baby born among the races of mankind
for many generations can have been so
dearly prized
lit her small but valued person she
Embodied all that could possibly be impor
tant and treasured and momentous when
a baby comes to a royal household and
Awhile there isnt a single baby anywhere
font Rotterdam to Michigan who cares

ID WOULD be hard to imagine a pcoplo
Im moro loyal to thoir ruling houso than tho
Hollanders for tho very cogent reason
that thero isnt any other people that hus
fcucli weighty ground for loyalty
If tho houso of Orango should perish from
iho face of ibo earth tho kingdom of Holland
would stand more than a fair chance of perish
ing too because tho allpowerful German em
piro most urgently needs Hollands ports and
strategical situation in its business both of
commerce and of war
Tho Hollanders over since Queen Wilhel
minD represented the last genuino security for
their immunity from the onerous military serv
ice and other hardships of German suzerainty
an1d Okthder
have looked to her as their one hope of con
tinued independence and after her to any
lilt
child she might Lear
So a wholo pcoplo have for years beheld
their liberties hanging upon their queens ex
pectation of offspring and during those years
have seen tho hop again and again frustrated
until by what tho pious among them believed
to bo a direct dispensation of Providence tho
hopo was realized just about a month ago to
day v
Was it any wonder then that those peo
ple took to little Juliana Louise Wilhcl
mina with tho fondness that even tho foster
i parents of ordinary babies fail to bestow and
was it any wonder that Juliana when she did
appear found prepared for hor such a nursery
outfit us had never beforo leen made in love
and longing
At The Hague tho zoynl cradle was fitted
out with embroideries worked by the wondrously
expert laccmakers who made the coronation and
bridal robes of the babys royal mother At
Zcclaud the wholo city gave itself up to tho
making of a perambulator the hood of which
carried tho famous Sluis lace with the speci
mens used such as had never been surpassed
But Iceland was far from being content

Maternal envy was aroused and stim
ulated for months before the longedfor
Juliana Louise JVilhclmina appeared to
take possession of her dainty Dutch layette
but if mothers the world over had been as
well posted as Queen IVilhemilla about the
splendors supplied other royal babies they
might have known that even queens

kets which infancy could possibly need and
motherhood delight in
While all these luxurious appointments
were being preparedand that at first with no
very great confidence of their ultimnto avail
ability some genius of the picturo postcard de
signed a charming likeness of Queen Wilhcl
mina standing beneath a portrait of tho princo
consort and bending over a roost gorgeous
cradle It was called itA Royal Dream
So faithful was it to the conditions and so
aptly did it depict tho state of mind of the
whole nation that the postcard of the Royal
Dream leaped into an instant overwhelming
popularity All Holland took to sending it
through the mails ns though tho popular long
ing had at lost found an emblem on which it
could agree and all Holland gazed with pro
found admiration upon the artists fanciful
curves and dclicato traceries convinced that
only in such a wondrous cradle could bo found
a resting place worthy of the heir to its throne
Tho one baby who rivaled tho princess of
Orango in desirability during this generation
at least was Alexis the young czarevitch whoso
coming rejoiced the imperial family of Russia
about five years ago
To the tiny czarevitch went the tiara of the
grand dukes used in crowning the heir to tho
Russian throne a crowning cap with an 6nor

laces with the certainty that a people who take
their pride in their rulers will buy that photo
graph and preserve it and how it to visitors
with uo thought other than that here is another
princeling and the country cant have too many
of them
England indeed has had so many of them
that there is no such fuss made over a new royal
I baby as has been stirred up in Russia Holland
I or Spain
There indeed have come the royal arrivals
who arc to be regarded simply as incidents in
tho natural course ofevents And so i Spain
perhaps moro than in l Hollandor in Russia does
the real significance of a royal baby find its just
appraisement

A young couple a kingdom well enough
satisfied with them every promise of tho or
dinary developments of royal family life thoro
5 was really nothing to greatly hope or greatly
dread in the coming of the heirs
But the prince of the Asturias when
Queen Victoria did bring him into tho world
hd pomo very fino nursery arrangements wait
ing for him tho swinging bassinet in which
his father King Alfonso lay ns an infant with
tho real old Brussels lao adorning it half a
I dozen other historic cradles which ho couldnt
possibly use a layette that was mado by scores
of tho most skilful workwomen of the kingdom91
cud even when his royal mamma and King Al
fonso took him to England a special nursery
on the British battleship Renown whero tho
cabin of ono of the ofiiccrs was converted to
I his distinctly domestic and peaceable uses
r Queen Victoria of Spain the crown prin
ces of Germany and tho queen of Holland
these royal mothers may be accounted tho most
happy of all in the world of monarchy
Unlike patient Wilhelmina of Holland for
I whom such vast rejoicings weic made a month
ago the other two have every promise of broods
healthy and numerous enough to leave them
carefree of Wilhilmiiias deep anxieties of state
They arc blessed in their happiness of the nur
sery to which no gold or jewels no silks or
laces can add one quicker beat of joy in tho
pulsing of a mothers heart
