Aro you wise, Bunch, to what tho pan-handling nobility of Europe are doing in our dear United States? They are putting all our million aires on the fritz, that's what they're doing. It will soon come to pass that the heiress will have to be locked up la the safe deposit vaults with papa's bank book. Here is an item from one of our most prominent newspapers.

I am glad, Bunch, that I am not a rich man with a daughter who is eat ing her heart out for a moth-covered title and a castle on the Rhinowlne.

That church is St Peter's, Vere street, London. And yet SL Peter's Is ono of tho most fashionable churches of Ixtnduu, Tho reason of its record is curious. The church in not licensed for marriages. With the aid of a special license and a special proclamation and dispensa tion, tho archbishop of Canterbury, as sisted by a distinguished gathering of !

Maurice in the middle Victorian period Dr. Maurice was the Incumbent of tho church. He soon became celebrated as tho most eloquent and powerful preacher in the Church of Englaud. and brought St. Poter's from the uu known ranka of a chapel of easo to its prosont status of a famous and fash- Jonnble church. Tho only other mar-. rlage celebrated in the church was that of Lord Selfcorne's daughter tn Col. Lord Digby of the Coldstream tuards. This was some years ago and King Edward was among the guests. But for the fact that tho bride was daughter of England's lord chancellor t Is doubtful whother the special au thorization needed for the ceremony would have been Issued. In the McMillan-Maurice wedding the fact that the bridegroom was chaplain to tho archbishop of Canterbury mnde it eas ier to grant the bride's request that she might be married In her grand father's old church.
