Rich Ducal Estates In England With a Curious Rental. It Is not generally known that on the anniversary of Waterloo each year -June 18. 1S15. was the original day the Duke of Wellington is required to present the sovereign with a new flag bearing the French colors as an ac knowledgment that his grace holds the manor of Strath fieldsaye at the will and pleasure of the king, that estate having been presented to the Iron Duke as a national gift for his success over Napoleon at Waterloo. The ceremony of the presentation of the flag is today much shorn of its ancient glory. "for formerly the ruling duke nsed to-'lwing the trophy himself on horseback and personally offered It to the monarch. Nowadays it is sent by deputy, however, and is then placed by some appointed equerry in the po sition assigned to It namely, over tbk marble bust of the old Duke of Wel lington that stands on Its pedestal In the guardroom at Windsor castle. The flag which has rested there during the preceding year is then taken down and returned to the duke's messenger. It Is on the special condition of thus rendering this annual tribute of feudal service, as we may call it that the reigning dnke Is allowed to retain the splendid estate already mentioned. If be omits to send the banner on the proper day be forfeits the right to the estates. The same principle applies to the beautiful domains of Blenheim held by the Dnke of Marlborough, who sim ilarly has to send a new flag on each anniversary of the battle (Aug. 13. 1704). The banner Is placed over the bust of the noted Duke of Marlbor ough, also In the guardroom at Wind sor. London Sphere. Terrors of Anticipation.
