His unusual popularity all over the country without respect to t'X 'LE JOE CANNON AS HE TS OFF DUTY. political creed is owing umcli to his being so democratic in his ways and unpretentious In his manners. The speaker is rarely seen when off duty in the house without a t ige.r in his mouth. , He recently said in reference lo a re port that lie had cut down his allow ance, "'1 lie fellow who said 1 only smoke three a day is not exactly a na ture fakir, but he is of the same breed." Next to toba- o he is perhaps most fond of pie. The Illinois states man often jests about his personal ap pearance and one time was a guest at n dinner given by Senator Pepew. It was the day the senators rigged up a “jal alai" ■ ntrt and tested its capabili ties for mischief. Conversation turned upon the incident, and there was a lot of badinage. Finally Mr. Depew made things personal. "I say, ( iiunon, now that the presi dent has resumed jin jitsu and the sen ate has taken up jai alai. the speaker of the house of representatives ought to find some diversion- something, 1 suggest, that begins with J.” "Much obliged, Depew,” said the speaker, “but I'm jay enough already.” Speaker Cannon recently defined his position as to the presidential nomina tion. saying that ha was not a candi date for it, but that if perchance the choice fell upon him there would be no alternative but to accept. KING OSCAR CF SWEDEN. A Most Learned, Wise, Respected and Democratic Monarch. King Oscar II. of Sweden was born at Stockholm in 1S29. IiU father, King Oscar I., was a son of Joseph Francois Bornadotto. the French peas ant who became a general under Na poleon and a great favorite with that conqueror. When it was discovered that Charles XIII.. who occupied the Swedish throne from 1S09 to ISIS, was childless, Napoleon induced the na tional diet at Stockholm to establish Beruadotte crown prince. On the death of Charles XIII. lie ascended the throne as Charles XIV. King Oscar II. was monarch of Nor way as well as Sweden up to about | THE LATE KING OSCAR II. OF SWEDEN. two years ago, when the Norwegian storthing declared Norway independent of Sweden and the government of the latter country acquiesced in the sep aration. As a young man the king was trained in the navy and at the University of Upsala. lie ascended the throne in 1872. Few European sov ereigns have ever acquired such stand ing ns scholars and statesmen as has been universally accorded to King Os car, and few have ever acquired to such a degree the affection of their people or have been so democratic. In the days of his greatest literary activ ity he turned out works of poetry and volumes on military history, criticism and general literature at a rate which left the public to wonder how ho ever found time to rule his kingdom, but it was generally acknowledged that he did the latter unusually well. Rejected Manuscripts. “'I received a lot of rejected manu scripts today,” said Titmarsh to a friend. "Did you? I had no idea you had any ambition to shine as an auth’i1.” “Not exactly that. You see, my sweetheart and 1 quarreled, and she i returned all my letters.” MISS SHONTS* FIANCE. French Nobleman Who Has Won Daughter of Traction President. The Pile Emmanuel Theodore Ber nard Marie d’Albert de Chauines et de Flcquigny had a hard time winning THE DUC I>E CHAULNE3. Miss Theodora Shonts. It was neces sary to get the consent to the match of the fair young American's father. President Theodore F. Shonts of the Interborough traction system, New York, and the latter at first frowned on the union. Perhaps he disliked the idea of his daughter marrying any one l,ut an American. Perhaps lie was re luctant to part with a large part of his fortune in order that his daughter might have such a dowry as an Amer ican girl who marries a titled foreign er is supposed to receive. The young duke met Miss Shouts in Paris two years ago. and his attentions to her have excited notice at various times since. He is thirty years old and has a house in Paris and a nstle. THE DRUCE MYSTERY. Millions of PVlcney Involved In the Opening of a Coffin. The suit of (.Jeorge llollamby Druce to oust the Duke of Portland from his title and estates, which has so ab sorbed public interest recently in Eng land, turns on the question of whether the supposed funeral of the late Thom as Charles Druce, the claimant’s DEUCE GRAVE IN IITGHGATE CEYIETF.EY. grandfather, was only a mock burial It is the contention of the claimant that tlie coffin contained nothing but ,’ead. According to Ills story, the man known as Thomas Charles Druce, who kept a bazaar and was married three times, was iho same man as the fifth Duke of Portland, who lived an eccen trie existence, often disappearing for long periods at a time, and who was supposed to be a bachelor. Tile duke died in 1S79. Druce was supposed to have died in 18G4. It is claimed that in the latter year the duke tired of living n double life and determined to do away with the role he was playing un der the name of Thomas Charles Druce and had a mock funeral in ful fillment of this plan, buying the silence of his children by bis two later wives through deeding to them large amounts of property. The plaintiff in the suit is a son of Druce's son by his first wife. It would throw light on the mystery if the grave of Druce could be opened and tlie coffin examined to determine whether it contains a skeleton or not. Stich a move has been fought by the defendants in the suit, a circumstance which gives rise to the impression that they are afraid of what the ex aminatlon might revea'. The coffin of the supposed Druce was placed in vault No. 111,100 at Iligligatc GEORGE IIOLLAMRY DKUCE. cemetery. hit on id the examination re quested lie permit ted the contention of the claimant would at least be greatly strength ened if his state ment were found to be correct. The fifth Duke of Port land was very ec centric and spent millions of dollars building tunnels un tier Welbeck abbey, the ancestral seal of the dukes of Portland. A strange circumstance of the case Is the fact that when the old duke's Loudon resi dence was torn down some time ago a tunnel was found which led from il to the bazaar where the man known as Thomas Charles 1 truce ilid business. It is supposed by believers in the Jelcyll and Hyde theory that he went back and forth by underground pas sages like this and in various ways succeeded in living a double life for many years. Portraits of the Duke of Portland and of the elder Druce have been Introduced in evidence. The bazaar keeper wore a full beard, the nobleman only side whiskers, but the faces above the heard line reienble. There is always room at the top, hut the young man who waits for a spe cially constructed elevator to tit his case will never leave the ground Boor. —Nashua Telegraph. Famous People tke ^loment The rise of Thomas Taggart, chair man of the Democratic national com mittee, who has been In the public eye on account of the meeting of that com mittee at Washington, was altogether out of the ordinary. About thirty years ago, when the girls In the railway lunch room at Indianapolis said “Draw one.” it was Taggart, then a red cheek ed. bine eyed and broad shouldered young Irishman, 1 who might have hoi’ii soon turning the faucet of the coffee urn. It was a happy combina tion of industry ami good humor which caused the youth's elevation through the various stages of lunch counter keeper, res taurant proprietor, hotel keeper, coun ty auditor and mayor of Indian THOMAS TAGGART, j apolis aiul which in due time won him the honor of presiding over the na tional campaign organization of his party. Mr. Taggart thinks his busi ness career began wh n he was about • ix. Of his later youth he relates: When T was working in Xenia one of my duties was to go up the road every morning to buy flowers for my employer. At the hotel across the way there lived v very pleasant lady. Mrs. John Durand. One day she said to me. “Torn, bring me •i flower when you come back,” and every morning she would tell me what she would like, but never say anything about ihe money. My salary, a very small one in these days, was turned over to my family, but I was careful then and man aged to save a couple of dollars that I had made by extra work. With this money 1 paid for the flowers for Mrs. Durand us long as it lasted. Then 1 would borrow the money until I had spent in all $7 or $8 for flowers, but I was ashamed to suggest payment to the lady. Things went on from day to day, but strangely enough I never despaired of be ing repaid for my outlay. One day she called me to her and handed me $15. At that time it seemed a tremendous sum, and that really was the nucleus of any financial success I have had and stands out in my life os a memory or a very happy time. That day, with that $15 in my pocket. I would not have exchanged places with any one in the world. It is claimed by some that it was not President Roosevelt who started the much talked of campaign against na ture faking, but the venerable natural ist John Burroughs, the “Sage of Slab JOIIX BURROUGHS. sides, let Mr. Bur roughs himself has told stories of the nature faking vari ety. On occasion he can tell just as mar velous tales of that kind as anybody else. He related such a yarn at a dinner in Boston It was as easy to believe, he said, as many of the nature writers' anecdotes. Then he began: “My cousin's wife’s baby was very ill, and finally the crisis came, and the little one fell into a doej sh ep the sleep was to be decisive. On the child's awakening the doctor would know whether it would live or die. Well, in order that this momentous slumber might not be disturbed my cousin's wife, going about on tiptue, muiiied everything—chair legs, cups and saucers, plates, the doorbell.
