crown princess, and King Oscar wished
ills son to nni ke an alliance wltb out
of the royal bouses of Europe. The
(llliiculty seemed one to be met only
by drastic steps on the part of tho
lovers, but Queen Sophie's h -'rt was
won, and she it was who obtained the
king's consent. She was Tery 111, and
a dangerous operation was the only
chance of saving her life. "If I under

she nsbed the king, nnd of course the
king prondsed. A year later the queen
was quite well again. The lovers were

A Narrow. Escape.
An old circus man tells this Incident
as one of the narrow escapes he bad
iu the show business. He had trained
lions,, zebras, leopards, rhino you
know and all sorts of beasts of prey,
but this, he says, was his narrowest
escape. It was wheu he was running
n dime museum in Milwaukee.
One dny a mild mannered Russian
came out of the railway station with
n valise in bis baud. He was a heavily
bearded mau and with shaggy hands
and arms like George Esau. He hunt
ed up a cabmnu and Inquired modest
ly, "'Where Is the dime museum?"
The cabman told him and then asked,
"Want to ride up?"
"Yes," tho bearded stranger told him
quietly, almost bashfully. "I'm to be
employed up there. I'm the wild man."
"The nnrrow escape," say the ex
elrcus man, "lny In the fact that no
newspaper man heard the man's re
mark and that the cabman was an
Englishman, with no sense of humor,
who never thought to repeat It." Ex
change. Just So.

Spencer F. Eddy, who was recently
appointed by President Roosevelt as
envoy extraordinary and minister
plenipotentiary to Roumanbt aud Ser

that capacity the work of American
diplomatic agent In Bulgaria. , Mr.
Eddy baa been called the best dressed
American in Europe and is one of the
handsomest. He was born lu Chicago

Constantinople, serving as charge d'af

matters were under consideration and

Petersburg and was charge d'affaires
there In the absence of Ambassador
Meyer during a critical Juncture of the
war botweeu Russia and Japau.
An episode lu Mr. Eddy's career at
the time of the Victorian Jubilee of
1807 was an adventure he had during a
Loudon fog wltb a fair Russian prin
cess lu which be saved her from being
trodden on by horses In the streets of
the English metropolis wheu the mist
was so thick it was Impossible to find
one's way. The Incident was made
the foundation for a romance entitled
"Love Iu a Fog," which attracted at
tention at the time. It wus rumored
that Mr. Eddy was much smitten with
the beautiful Russian of his adventure
but, however that may be, no nuptial
ceremony resulted, and Instead, about
three years ago, he married Into the
wealthy Spreckels family of San Fran
cisco. Sir. Eddy was charge d'affaires
at Berlin for a year following bis serv
ice at St. Petersburg and In 1007 wns
appointed minister to Argentina, from
which post he has now been trans
ferred to Rouiuauia and Servla. It
used to be said of Mr. Eddy that he
was equally at home leading a cotillon
or as tackle on a football team.
Feats That Never Happened.
A grotesque and foolish view of the
rest leads many who are not ac
quainted with that part of the country
to perpetrate amusing blunders re
garding the possibilities of the typical
western weapons, the rifle and the sis
shooter. To shoot an animal's eye out
at a hundred paces Is a common font
In wild west literature. Sometimes It
Is done with a six shooter iu type, not
anywhere else. Of course, no man
can see the eye of au animal that far.
I have had a good rilleiuan tell me he
could cut off a robin's bead at a hun
dred steps. The truth Is that he could
not see the head clearly that far. You
read that the desperado Slade could
with a six shooter at fifty or sixty
steps hit a man In any button of his
coat that he chose, but you may be
sure that neither Slade nor any oue
else could do anything of the kind.
Even trick and fancy shooting at Its
best could ever cover feats ascribed as
matters of course to the average fron
tiersman by those devotees of frenzied
fiction who never saw the frontier.
Eluding the Officers.
Here is an amusing description of
one of Baltnc's periods of Impecunios
ity. Mery, the poet, a great friend of
Ha line, was an luvcterate gambler
and rarely left the card table before
daybreak, nis way lay past the Cafe
de Tarls, and for four consecutive
mornings be bad met Balzac strolling
leisurely op and down dressed In a
pantalon a pteds (trousers not termi
nating below the ankle, but with feet
In them like stocklugs) aud frock coat
with velvet facings. The second morn
ing Mery felt surprised at the coinci
dence: the third be was puzzled: the
fourth he could hold out no longer and
asHed Balzac tho reason of thwe noc

"Why are the trees all chopped away?"

The Word "Wallop."
The origin of the familiar vernacu
lar verb "to wallop" is not generally
known. It comes from the family
name of the earls of Portsmouth. Sli
John Wallop, K. G.. was admiral
commander in the reign of King Hen

French raids by burning French ships
and twenty-one French villages. This
was called. In the current parlance ol

The Emperor's Orderly.
Frenchmen of every rank and class
dearly love titles. The manager of a
Paris Insurance company was decorat
ed with the Legion of Honor a few
days ago, and the clerks la the em
ploy of the company presented him
with a piece of plate to whl h their
visiting cards were attached. Cn look
ing over thte be was a good deal puz
zled and amused by the visltlug curd
of the office "boy," au old soldier
from the Invalides, who wns employed
to open the office doors from 0 to 4.
Under the man's name was the title
"the emperor's orderly." He sent
for the old soldier, who stumped In
"Of what emperor nrc you the order
ly, nnd how?" he naked. The old In
vallde drew himself up to attention.
"I am the orderly of the emperor,"
he said, "Napoleon, le Petit Corporal."
"But he Is dead. He has been dead
some time," answered the puzzled
"I dust his tomb for him," growled
the old soldier. London Express.
No Morals In Dreamland.
If, as many writers have suggested,
It Is the soul Itself that guides the Im
agery of dreams, how are we to ex
plain the fact that in this chaos of
Ideas and feelings there is so little dis
tinction between right and wrong that
when dreaming we commit acts for
which we should weep tears of blood
were they as real as they seem to be.
As Professor Hoffman has said, "The
familiar check of waking hours, 'I
must not do It because It would be un
Jnst or unkind,' never once seems to
arrest us lu the satisfaction of any
tvhim which may blow about our way
From all of which we must conclude
that the dream realm Is a world that Is
entirely oblivious to any moral sense
and that, though it may be true that a
troubled conscience may produce or
affect our dreams, the dreams them
selves are never burdened with a con
science. Bohemian Magazine.
An Awful Rebuke.
Once ripon a time a certain commu
nity planned to give a dinner to a
Judge there. When the Judge came to
scan the list of those Invited he raised
vigorous' protest against one name,
that of a man who h-.id been the most
brilliant lawyer in town, but who was
now the town druukard. Tbey finally
overcame bis opposition, but the towu
drunkard had beard of It. He was the
last speaker called upon. He arose
and said: "Mr. Toast master Fifteen
