In tho routine lire of King Humbert nnd qticon Margin rlta there aro two distinct jarly periods, tho "stnto" period, which Is spent In Home, from tho oponlng of parliament, about tho lEth of November, to Its closing by tho end of Juno; and tho "homo" period, which Is pnsscd mostly In tho Villa Hoalo nt Monza. This second period would fall within tho rango of the "royal holidays," which aro being described In tho Companion, but alas) I nm nfrald that In tho pres ent state of Huropo. In tho fnco of so many soolnl and political problems which claim solution, anxious rnro must harass tho good king, oven on tho teo Holds of tho Oran Parndlso, or In the silent wilderness of tho forests of Vnldlorl, and that tho namo of holi days must bo taken only In a compar ative semo, In opposition to city life. The long torra of city p ofllclal life Is made lighter to our sovereigns by tholr respective passion for sport and for music Tho king Is very proud of his shooting grounds of Caste) Porzlauo and Castel Kusano, to which ho rides or drives about onoo n weok. These two farms, adjoining each oth er, and enolosed all around either by a wall or by wlra nettings, cover an area of about thirty thousand acres, and extend from the chain of hills of De al mo to tho seashore. Their oak and pine forests aro stocked with wild boar, deer, stag and pheasants, while the downs along the coast afford oxeellont pert during the quail season. I think there la also a herd of fifty or sixty American elks, which are allowed to live and multiply unmolested. The gamekeepers and the other offleera live near the castle, In a oozy little village, where there aro an Infirmary, an at tending physician, a school, a ohuroh, and o small convent of Capuchin frlara. The game shot by the king and by the gentlemen who nro occasionally Invit ed to take a share In the royal aport, Is sent, as a rule, to hospitals, and charitable Institutions. It may be ob served that the section of this farm now called Torre Paterno was once the property of Pliny the Younger, who de serves It minutely In the seventeenth epistle of the second book.

Denso masses of ever greens occupy the foreground, w'hlle the Janloulum nnd tho Monte Mario shut the horizon beyond tho roofs nnd tho domes of tho city, with St. Peter's and the Vatloon towering between the two hills.
