KING EDWARD'S HUMOR.

King- Edward of England is a merry
monarch. At least he was reputed to
be merry before he attained his pres
ent august' dignity.
Some yi'iirs ago. v. lien Arthur Hub
erts n:i- singing' his snug "We are a
merry family, we lire, we are, we a re!"
the prince was ai-hcd for the solution
of a knotty point, lie merely shrugged
his shoulders a i,d s;i ;(; : "We are a

lie was at llie theater one night
watching the famous Fletcher plac
ing "Itoberl .laeaiie." The ntlvcu- ;
turer's eo.it was apparently a mass ot
rents a nil' patches., but the prince'.".
Keen eye iiiicli!,v noted that the gar
ment was .singularly well cut. After
the pla, the prince sent fur I'tcher
and asked him who his tailor was. The
actor replied that Mr. 1'oole had made
the coat he was wearing. The next day
the prince sent for the tailor, who trom
that hoitr was a made man.
All the world knows that both the
jarriagc and saddle horses of the prince
of Wales have as part of their equip
ment a forehead band of the color
hnnvvn as ro,,il scarlet. When the
princ" and his daughters ride in Il,de
park their horses are. therefore, dis
tinguished from thoe of other people
by these particular forehead bands.
One morning the horses of a certain
linaneier and his two daughters were
conspicuously adorned with red bands
that arc by etiquette icserved for the
Use of ro.Milly. The prince and the
young princesses, who were riding in
the row, could not help noticing this
vulgarity. Ou the followingday it was
seen that the prince had replaced his
scarlet forehead b.inds by others of
plain black leather, and the financier
and his daughters had it all their own
way in the matter of royal red.

Queen Wilhelmina's new husband
has acquired distinction in the vicin
ity of the royal resilience by acting
as a game warden. Two jolly Dutch
men fond of poaching' entered the for
est of l,ii(i u few dn.sngoin the hope
of being nble to snare a few par
tridges, says a London ei ,' ige.
In this task they were quite success
ful, but as hey were sneaking home
through the trees at a little distance
from the royal castle in which Queen
Wilhclminn and the prince of Mecklenburg-
are spending; their honeymoon
they found theiuselws iace to face
with another sportsman.
It was, in fact, the prince of Meck
The poachers did not know' him. and
the two Dutchmen never .sus
pecting that Ibis handsome young
gentleman was layinga trap, told him
all about themselves anil consequently
were surprised when the prince told
them to hand over their partridges
and gie him their mimes. They com
plied sullenly and then weit home,
where they were arrested a few hours
later on the charge of poaching.
The prince of Mecklenburg has
never been popular with the people
of Holland, 11 nil his action on this oc
casion has helped to intensify the ill
feeling against him, since the general
opinion is that a man in his position
could afford to overlook the peccadillo
of which the two Dutchmen were
floltl In tlir CucjicIn.
An order has gone out from the
treasury department that before tle,
various superintendents submit their
reports for the current year thoy
shall burn the rug's and carpets on
the floors of the rooms where smelt
ing ami refining of gold and silver
takes place. All the old cloths,
.floves and other paraphernalia used
in handling the precious metals are
,tb be burned also and careful stock
taken of the residue. The govern
ment expects to save anywhere from
$j'0,0f) to $11)0,0(10. from this process.
It is customary to go through this
formula every .venr or so and glean
out it 11 flakes of gold that may have
been scraped or clipped oil' and lost
to sight, Even the towels the em
ployes wash their hands ou are saved
and btibmittcd to lire.

Frederick W. Holls, of the Interna

Warsaw the other night, after hav
ing' been received In special audience
by Emperor Nicholas at I'etcrhof pal
ee at noon that day. The conference
was extended and most cordial. It Is
understood that the emperor thanked
Mr. Hollis for his history of the
peace confercnce.dedicatcd to hts ma
jesty, and expressed the deepest
gratification over the cordial support
from the American people and tho
United Stntes government, declaring
that he wished to thank the various
American organizations, such as
eliiirche's and chambers of commerce,
for their enthusiastic efforts in be
half of peace.
It is also understood that the, em
peror spoke warmly of the excellent
relations historical, traditionnl and
actual between the United States
and Kussia, and expressed a hope
that both powers, with their great re
sources, would continue to stand for
pence and the strengthening of The
Hague tribunal and the bloodless ad
justment of international dlillculties.
His majesty expressed a conviction
that the peace conference marked an
important step In advance, but that
tli tribunal must seek support, first
and foremost, in the intelligent opin
ion of the world, adding that in this
matter American opinion was uni
versally recognized as leading. With
out the backing of the American gov
ernment and people, the emperor ob

been such a success.

They were accordingly arranged.
Watson disapproved of them from the

The "Children's dm" services

absolutely uuiqiW by the presence of
hundreds of singing canaries in cages
suspended from the walls and fixtures
of the edifice. Several days ago the
church wardens determined to differ
entiate tliis occasion from others, and
secured the necessary number of song
sters. The cages were swung in con
venient places and at the morning,
services the canaries started a perfect
Niagara of melody, which continued
throughout the service and made it
almost impossible to distinguish the
words of tie preachers. When the
congregational singing began the
canaries were tremendously excited,
and the accompaniment of their shrill
chirruping made the occasion one
never to be forgotten.

DOLLAR IN ODD SHAPES,

in l'ut llefore It Ilccomcn
Under the law, a silver dollar may
be a grain and a half over weight, and
this "limit of tolerance" nppllcs to all
of our silver coins, in other words,
they are not allowed to vary more than
that much from .standard. In flic case
of gold pieces, the limit is half a grain
cither way, up to the eagle; a variation
of as much as one grain being permis
sible in the $10 and $:.() pieces, says the
Saturday livening Post.
Whenever a fresh batch of dollars Is
turned out at the mint, samples are
forwarded to the treasury at Washing
ton, where they are put through a
very curious process. lCach dollar Is
lit i weighed on exquisitely delicate
tcaleb, to make sure that it is heavy
enough, and yet not too heavy. Then it
passes between two steel rollers again
and again, until it Is flattened out and
transformed into a thin strip of sil
ver a sort of ribbon a foot and a half
in length. Then it Is put beneath a
little machine .provided with several
small punches, by which hundreds of
liny disks are punched out of the
Now, the object of this performance
is to obtain samples of metal from all
parts of the dollar, inasmuch as it is
conceivable tfiat one portion might be
richer in silver than another. The
little disks are sliuflled together, and
a few of them, taken at randonifrom
the lot, arc subjected to an assay. Thus
the fineness of the material.of the dol
lar is ascertained vvitli absolute ac
curacy, and, the weight having been
already determined, the value and cor

While Miss Henrieh was serving as

"distribution scheme," which is the

The ".scheme" is an arrangement of

for each carrier, and the various

there was a hot tip on him and he won

Tho favorite Ethelbert was badly beat

Ethelbert was at all times a consis

Water Curo in front Alcedo second
Ethelbert third, Utar Bright fourth
and tho rest close up. On tho way to
