AnothQr royal marriage in which
the heart was the sole guide to tho
determination of the contracting part
13 was that of the unfotunate Ger
man Emperor Frederick. When,, for
the first time, he saw the young Eng
e lish princess who was destined to be
- come his bride, she was only 11 years
0 of age, but her prettiness and grace
0 made such an impression upon him
5 that he exclaimed, "what a delight
e ful woman that little girl will be one
s day.'' Four years later he came again
K to England, and found his little prin
cess still m'oro charming. He paid
her assiduous court, and took her for
frequent walks in the royal gardens.
One day lie broke off from a hush a
sprig of gorso and gave it her as an
s emblem of affection. In this poetic
and simple fashion were the Emperor
and Empress Fredrick informally
Thie mar *age of the late King
11unbert of Italy was also a love
match, though less spontaneous than
some of the others we have quoted. At
an early age lie was enamoured of
his cousin Marguerite of Savoy, but
polities ordained that lie must marry
an Austrian, and the choice of the
ministers fell upon a young aerhdu
chess. The prince resigned himself
to his fate, in accordance with the
wishes of the country expressed
through the cobinet. But shortly
after their marriage the young prin
cess was killed by a terrible acei
(lent. The prince declared lie would
never marry again unless it was with
his cousin Marguerite, who at that
time was probably the most beauti
ful princess in Christendom.

An old ntival captain-one of thie
old, old school-was at one time sad
ly addicted to stammering.:AIe could
not utter simple sentence without a
great amount of sputtering and lies
itation. This was one day too much
for an intrepid sailor, who was re
ceiving an order from the captain
in that oficials usual halting manner,
and lie unfortunately burst into ai
uneont.rollale fit of laiightQr. This
rash act lie bitterly repented. Capt.
- was a disciplinarian of ile
homniPlopatiie system. i Making Jack
stand upon the fore bridge in full
view of the entire ship's crew, the
officer commanded his victim to
laugh continuously for an hour and
a half. This lie was eompelled to do,
though the pitiful expression of his
weatherbeaten, sunburnt visage de
noted anything but a happy and con
tented frame of mind.
Whistling in forbidden parts of the
ship has often been punished in a
similar manner. The offender has
been obliged to whistle his loudest
under the eagle eye of the command

so parched and cracked that lie could

Senator Vest of Missouri.

''Coffee,'' meekly replied the pro

scorn. ''My friend, I could insert a
