Kaiser’s Youngest Son Enlivens
Melancholy of War.
His Popularity With Men of Army Is
Perhaps Greater Than That of Any
of His Brothers — Compositions
Known In Every Trench—Only Re
cently Married.
Berlin.—Frince Joachim, the emper
or's youngest son, has been enlivening
the melancholy of the war not only by
getting married, but by composing
some stirring war marches. Since Au
gust, 1914, be has written six marches
—“The Men In Field Gray,” “Young
Germany,” “Gloria et Patria,” “The
Liege March,” “1914” and “With God
For King and Country.” For a long
time his music had been Introduced to
the court, his father taking the great
est pride in putting his compositions
on the programs at the court concerts,
but the general public was unacquaint
ed with it.
The prince, being the youngest of
the six sons of the emperor, has always
been a great favorite with the people,

and his popularity with the men of the
army is perhaps greater than that of
any of his brothers. Ills marches are
known in every trench.
There was disappointment that his
marriage recently to Princess Marie
Auguste of Anhalt was not celebrated
as a public festival. It took place at
the Castle Bellevue, one of the royal
residences, and there were no guests
except the members of the two fami
lies. Emperor William was not pres
ent, the empress and her daughter, the
Duchess of Brunswick, representing
the imperial family. The little bride is
in her eighteenth year, while the prince
had his twenty-fifth birthday last De
cember. They will probably live at
Cassel when they set up a family es
tablishment after the war. This is near
Wilhelmshohe, the old capital of
Hesse, where Napoleon III. was held
captive after the battle of Sedan and
where the empress goes to stay for the
month of August every year, as well as
a part of September.
Prince Joachim is a member of a
hussar regiment belonging to Cassel.
When he was severely wounded in De
cember, 1014, and taken to Berlin for
hospital treatment his Cassel regiment
was kept informed of his condition,
and the prince spent his convalescence
writing letters to his army comrades.
The young corporal who rushed to
his aid when he was struck on the bat
tlefield and the private who donated
his fresh package of bandages to dress
the prince's wounds received letters
from the hospital of remembrance for
their service.

Paterson, N. J.—“Young widows only

Cleveland, O., in a letter which John

Bride, Twenty-three Years Old,
Marries Father’s Friend, Thir
ty-nine Years Her Senior.
New York.—A romance that had it»
beginning in the close friendship be
tween the bride’s father and the elder
ly bridegroom resulted recently in the
marriage of Miss Mabel Evelyn Crlsta
doro of Flushing, N. Y., to Harrison
Hodges, purchasing agent for the
Bong Island railroad. Mr. Hodges,
whose home is at 58 West Fifty-sev
enth street, is sixty-two years old.
while his bride is twenty-three.
Mr. Hodges has passed practically
his whole life in the railroad business
and is very widely known. Many
years ago Miss Cristadoro's father,
Charles Crisladoro, also was engaged
in the railroad business. A close
friendship sprang up between the men,
and almost from the day of her birth
Mr. Hodges evinced a deep interest in
the daughter of his friend and com
At first, the bride said laughingly, Mr.
Hodges’ gifts to her were toys and
the other “goodies” usually so accept
able to children. In recent years, how
ever, friends of Miss Cristadoro be
came convinced that there was some
thing more than casual friendship for
the young woman in the attentions be
stowed upon her by Mr. Hodges. They
were not surprised recently when it
became generally known that they
were to be married, although Mr.
Hodges had been looked upon as a
confirmed bachelor.

Will Supplant Old System of Wig
wagging—Special Motor Cycle Squad
to Be Organized Shortly So That
Messages May Be Rushed When
New York.—A complete wireless out
fit has Just been installed at police
headquarters. Announcement of it
was recently made by H. C. Case, sec
retary to Police Commissioner Arthur
Woods. The station has a sending
radius of more than 250 miles. It was
Installed as an aid to the efforts Com
missioner Woods is making along the
lines of police preparedness.
The station has sent and received
messages from Sandy Ilook and from
Incoming and outgoing vessels and
could, if necessary, communicate with
the government station at Arlington,
Va., near Washington.
Nearly 100 private wireless outfits
scattered throughout the city have
been listed by the police, and head
quarters can get into communication
with them at any hour of the day or
night. A special motorcycle squad

■will be organized shortly so that in
time of need •messages could be borne
swiftly from these private stations to
any point in the city.
Sixteen men on the force, all of them
formerly telegraphers, are working now
under the direction of Sergeant Charles
E. Pearce, himself the holder of a first
grade commercial license as operator.
When they receive their licenses in the
wireless service they will then be used
at headquarters and be ready also to
go to any station where they may be
The wireless will supplant the old
system of wigwagging, which was the
only system of communication the po
lice had to fall back on if the telephone
and telegraph failed. By using tall
buildings messages could thus be re
layed in a comparatively short time to
any part of the city.
Along with the preparation within
the force itself the Citizens’ Home De
fense league has been recruited now to
a strength of nearly 20,000 men. The
members are organized In twenty com
panies of about a hundred men each
and are drilled by. their own officers
under the direct supervision of the pre
cinct captain. Their names are on
cards kept by the captain, and they
may be called out by him at any time.
It is expected that they will supple

Some trouble lias been found to ob

league, vacant lots and public schools

Works Out Through Roof of Mouth
When Doctors Fail.
Dawson, Ta,—A fourpenny nail,
after being nearly fifty years in the
head of Fred Siebert, Jr., came out
through the roof of his mouth re
cently. Mr. Seibert bas suffered since
he was seventeen years of age with
fconstaut headaches and. despite med
ical skill, nothing could be done for
him. His headache ceased when the
bit of iron emerged through the roof
of his mouth.
When seventeen years old a piece of
lumber fell on Seibert’s head and
caused an ugly wound. Later the
wound healed and the head pains be
came frequent.
