Born and reared in the wildest part of the only "wild west" of today, the mining region of the Rocky moun tains, he is a refined, scholarly youth without a trace of the rough moun taineer about him. The son of one of the richest men in America, he is so far from being ex travagant that he is accused of being "near." Active in a political campaign that made older and more experienced men frantic, he kept the "cool head, cool heart and calm band" that Browning recommended, and helped to control the conventions that made his father United States senator. , It was expected that when he left Harvard he would follow his elder brother.

In her case the question has been prefaced by a "Why?" for it is no secret that her heart is much involved, any more than it is a secret that Duke Heinrich. of Mecklenburg Schwcrin is stout and plain of face and the least of all her suitors in a worldly sense. He is the youngest son in a family of many boys, he is the least handsome of the brothers, he has never distinguished himself In court or in camp in all his twenty-four years, and yet since Wil helmina first saw him at Potsdam, nearly two years ago. she had had a pretty well defined idea as to just where her final choice would settle. Duke Heinrich's history has been such as to keep that question alive. In spite of his poverty and in spite of his lack of beauty he would seem to be the possessor of that sort of fascina tion there is no use trying to explain, because it is so safely hidden from all but the persons fascinated and because they are always plainly beyond the HEAT reach of reason; even though they be as sensible, matter-of-fact and unro mantic as Queen Wilhelmina herself. There was the pretty Princess Helena, of Russia, for Instance. She was safe ly engaged to Max. of Baden, when Duke Heinrich. of Mecklenburg Schwerln crossed ber pathway. The engagement was suddenly broken just Some weeks ago The Herald pub lished a full account of Guy Fenley, the boy with the X-ray eyes, who, it is claimed, can discern pools of water Independent Assay Office or oil many hundreds feet below the surface of the earth. The story of the boy and his won derful gimlet eyes that can see through solids has created a great stir all over Texas and the youth jumped into prominence with one bound.

Even now it is said. El Paso oil mag nates are endeavoring to hire him to Took over their oil lands on the Pecos. Hon. John N. Garner, of Uvalde, state representative from his district. says the people of his home are just as much excited over the boy's strange faculties as are the people of any other section of the state and they will take steps to make a thorough test of the boy's vision. This test will be con ducted by a committee composed of the most prominent citizens of Uvalde and if successful the boy's fortune is made.

Senator Clark is depending now up on his splendid Fifth avenue house and the pretty young woman who will preside over it. The house will have few equals in New York. The site Is a plot of land having a frontage of 51 feet on the avenue, an L 65 by 100 feet runnine north from the easterly end of the lot The material is marble and the archi tecture French renaissance. A con tract for $300,000 for the marble has been let. There will be reception rooms after the models of those of the kings of France at Versailles. There will be a theater finer than that of the Countess Ie Castellane. There will be bath rooms to rival that of Clans Spreckel's daughter. The arrangement of the first floor will be such that by pressing a button in the hall all the partitions will swing back upon the side walls and leave the expanse of the great house unobstructed. There will be a Turkish bath, a swimming tank and a gymnasium. The house will cost $2,000,000. The collection of treasures of art within it will be beyond price. uast year bona tor Clark brought from Europe many of those treasures. One was a stained glans window which was considered the most beautiful in France. It is also one of the oldest and tells the story of one of the Greek myths. It was sold it is said, for $30.00t. He bought pictures from the Doria sale in Paris, and at the Salon. He has one of Lepine's best works, a From the Boston Dally Globe.
