THE AMERICA'S CUP.
IN YACHTING BRITANNIA DOES HULE THE WAVES. •mr fh« fntrniatlonal Trophy Waa Willi ami Hai Been Successfully OfffDtled 8rven Xiirn by Yanlift" Yachts—The Tttlkyrlo and Oar Four Cap DtfenilM* It is six years since swift yachts repre fflentirg Great Britain and the United States have met in a grand struggle for tfoo jjossession of the America's cup— fdx years since the fleet Yankee Volun teer showed her heeLs to the Scotch This tle and an American yacht for the eighth time demonstrated Uncle Sam's right *o ,thf» international trophy representing the •world's yachting championship. In Oc tober of the present year, however, the swiftest Yankee yacht will be called •upon to meet Lord Dunraven's Valkyrie JHMI defend the famous cup that was •won by the gallant old America away back in August, 1851, and has remained on this side ever since despite the re peat »*1 attempts of English yachtsmen to prove tliat Britannia rules the seas. In 1851 the yacht America, designed and built by George Steers and com manded by J. C. Stevens, sailed across the Atlan tic and arrived at Cowev in time to enter the re gatta for all na tions and contest for the enp of fered by the Royal Yacht squadron. The owners of the America knew nothing about the cup until they arrived at Cowes, bnt they possess ed true Yankee sporting blood, entered the THE AMERICA'S (TUP. America, against 18 yachts xanging in tonnage from 892 to 47 tons—the Americ%waa a three masted schooner of 170 tons—and ran away from the whole fleet, defeating the Aurora, their most formidable compet itor, by 20 minutes. When won, the cup was practically mly a rt-gatta prize, but in 1857 the America's owners presented the trophy to the New York Yacht club as a per petual international challenge cup. On Aug. 8.1870. James Asbury's yacht Cam bria came over after the cup and was the first and only English yacUt to sail against a fleet for the trophy as the America had clone. The Yankee Magic 'won, and the Cambria was beaten by nine American yachts. Anbury came again after the cup in August, 1871, and his Livonia is the only British challenger that ever even won a single trial race for the cup, and her vic tory was largely dne to the fact that the brnVe her steering gear and parted her Syiug ju slay. In August. 18JG, the Canadian yacht Countess Buffenn was twice beaten by the Yankee Madeline in races for the cup. fke second race the old America, al though not an actual contestant, went over the conrw and also worsted the vanacHan challenger. In November, 1681, the Canadian yacht Atalanta met the American yacht Mis chief for the cup, but was beaten twic8 In succession by the Mischief, and also by the Gracie, which was not an actual contestant. In lSbo the Royal Yacht squadron and Royal Northern Yacht club dispatched the Genesta after the cup. She was de feated in September by the Puritan, which was the creation of Edward Bur gess, General Charles J. Paine and J. Malcolm Forbes of Boston. The Puritan won the first race by 16 minutes 47 seconds and the second by only 1 minute 38 seconds. The Gi.latea, commanded by Lieuten ant Henn, v.*as the nest British yacht to cross the Atlantic. The Mayflower, owned by General Paino and designed by Burgess, defeated the Galatea Sept. 7 and 11. 1886, by 12 minutes 2 seconds and 29 minutes 9 seconds in two races. The last race for the cup occurred in September, 1887, between our Volunteer and the Scotch Thistle. The vim tin yacht was no match for the Volunteer and was beaten by over 19 minutes in the first race and by nearly 1? minutes in the second. The Volunteer was also the creation of Burgess and Paine. Of the four Yankee yachts now being built,, the Archibald Rogers syndicate yacht Colonia, the Boston syndicate yacht Pilgrim, the unnamed boat owned General Paine and the unnamed E. D.

THE ROYAL BETROTHAL. All NOT Kn gland Interested Inibi AppMHH^ Inn Marriage of George and May. Just why Prince George of Wales, the heir presumptive to the British throne, should have been engaged to marry the fiancee of his deceased brother is some thing that plebeian mortals can scarcely hope ever to know. PRINCE GEOROE AND PRINCESS MAY. Various reasons are given, but proba blythe most likely is that of the few women living who were eligible the Princess May, whom he has known all his life, suited him best. There are not more than half a dozen women in the world from among whom he could se lect a wife, and if he broke over the traces and made an undesirable alliance the marriage would be void without the consent of his grandmother, the queen. The prince is in his twenty-eighth year and Is a favorite with the British people, who have nicknamed him "Jolly Prince George." He has always been a model young man, so far as appearances go at least, and has been careful to make no friendships that might embarrass him in the future. His childhood was spent at Sandring ham, and at 15 he and his brother en tered the navy as cadets. Two years later he began a three years' cruise around the world on the Bacchante. He is still connected with the navy and de votes considerable time to his duties in connection therewith. In appearance the prince resembles his father, and there is also a strong resem blance between him and his future wife. They are' 'second cousins, once removed," as the English put it, so the likeness is not strange. The princess is the daugh ter of the Duchess of Teck, who was Princess Mary of Cambridge, a favorite cousin of the queen. Her majesty was present when the duchess was married in 1866 and threw a satin slipper after the bride. Apart ments in Kensington palace were as signed the ducal conple, and their four children, of whom Princess May is the eldest find the only daughter, were all born there. With intervals devoted to travel abroad, the Princess May spent the first 13 years of her life at Kensington, a gloomy old pile resembling a hospital. Then the family removed to the historic White Lodge at R^hmond, wLere they still reside. Here the princess was the constant companion of her brothep in their studies and sports, and it is no doubt largely due to this fact that she is such a clever horsewoman and knows how to handle an oar. She is clever in other respects also, speaking three lan guages fluently and playing well on the piano. She dresses handsomely, her toilets at the queen's drawing rooms being always a subject of favorable comment in the press. The Princess of Wales is credit ed with having designed the bridal dress for her future daughter-in-law, and Eng lish women can hardly wait for the event ful July 0, the wedding day, so anxious are they to learn what the dress is like. DOMESTIC ARTS. Good HMMkeipioc to Be Taught a* At mour Institute In Chicago. One of many educational functions in cluded in the work of the Armour insti tute in Chicago Is that to be covered by what is called the department of do mestic arts. The special object of this department is to spread abroad a knowl edge of the art of good housekeep ing, or perhaps it would be better M£S. mart H, HULL, to sa^ the many arts involved in good housekeeping, for, as the curriculum of tho depart ment would prove, if every woman did not know it for herself, it takes a knowl edge of many things to make a home all that it should be, and the woman who knows the most succeeds the best. Here, for instance, cooking, washing and mending are on the programme, while plain sewing, dressmaking and embroidery have each a class devoted to them. Home decoration will not be neg lected, and home nursing and physical culture will be part of the regular course, and Sirs. Mary H. Hull, the director of the department, will deliver lectures on the general topic of "Housekeeping' that are expected to summarize the ad vantages of the different branches. There is a model kitchen and a dining room, and the different classrooms are fitted with all sorts of conveniences to facilitate their work. A library of sev eral thousand volumes has been provided for the use of students, and a number of household periodicals are kept on file for their benefit. Betides all this, there will be lectures on si*-cial subjects during the year by such well known women as Mrs. Candace Wheeler, Mary Frances Steele and Ellen M. Richards. The object of the school is not only to train women for household duties in their families, bnt also to train skilled workers who expect to make a liveli hood by household labor, and for these an employment agency will be establish ed as soon as there is any need of it. the school giving the pupil tho benefit of its indorsement of her efficiency. There are to be special course® in fan cy cooking, too, and to these men will be admitted. In fact, some are already enrolled. These courses will embrace chafing dish and camp cooking and the Te PTMMI* Xatrtmoay. Everybody in a big city know? hmr difficult it is for what may be called the lower middle class to make acquaint* ances. Young men might marry young women if they knew any, and young women might make good wives if they knew where suitable husbands could be found. With that practical instinct characteristic of the British it is pro posed now to bring these eligible people together. For the young man and the maiden at present there is no common meeting ground. The scheme is to take most of the large boarding school buildings, which in America would be called public schools, and turn them into meeting places for those anxious to marry—to let the chil dren have possession of tlje schools by day and the older people take possession of them at night. Now the building! stand idle after dark. It would be easy to have dances, meetings and lecture# there, let every one attend who cares tc and in this way bring about a union of loving hearts. The plan is feasible, and the chances are that it will be carried out here.—London Letter. Th* Fate of the Narrate. There is no information in regard to the nature of the disaster. The Naronic may have collided with a derelict, oi there may have been a fire or an explo sion on board, such as to compel her crew to abandon her and take to their boats onlv to perish in the severe storm? of Feb. 23, ai, or Feb. 27,28. If the Naronic took the northern trans atlantic route, which should not be fol lowed after Jan. 14, she may have col lided with an iceberg or field ico and have TTi tunk. as was the iron bari Adamantine on Fob. 27, in latitude 47 degrees 21 minutea north and longitude 47 degrees n?) minutes west. From this position the Naronic's boats may have been drifted by the prevailing winds and curr.uts to tLe lace where seen by the Coventry. There has been less ice and fog this season than nsual. and it is strange that such a disaster could occur without leav ing some more definite trace of its na ture.—Hydrograpuic Office Bulletin# Old iXoopftkirtft.
