VS VICTORIAS FUNERAL PROCESSION. From 8tereograph,copyrtght. by Underwood A Underwood,N. Y. London, Eng.—The funeral of King Edward is declared to have been the most imposing ceremonial Great •Britain's capital ever witnessed. Thirty thousand soldiers were brought from Aldershot and other military camps to line the streets wfc .n the procession passed As there was no room to barrack them over night, the soldiers bivouaced in tho parks and strcct3. The city had the appearance of an invested town for two days. Some of the soldiers slept in tents in the parks, while the remainder lay down beside their guns in the streets. Scotland yard had all its detectives on duty, and these were reinforced by a hundred more from continental cities. All visitors were watched, but there was little real fear of anarchistic attempts, because it was known that every une under surveilance would be deported from England if any trouble were caused on this occasion, and it was not likely that the persons of the *5 anarchist type would give up volun tarily their safest refuge in Europe. The procession to Westminster hail May 17 for the lying in state was al most on as great a scale as the fu neral procession. The cortege included «*^Cing George and all the foreign sov ^XHreigns on horseback, and the 1 KINGS AND PRINCES OF ALL NATIONS FOLLOWED THE BIER OF QUEEN VICTORIA. A SIMILAR SCENE WAS WITNESSED AT THE FUNERAL OF KING EDWARD. FUNERAL RITES OF KING EDWARD VII. At a conservative estimate 700,000 persons passed through Westminster hall to look upon the coffin of the king J^ing in state. Barriers were built, by nieans of which the people were ushered through in four lines at the rate of 18,000 an hour. The body of the late king was not exposed to view. Queen Mother Chose Hymns. The hymns sung at the service at Windsor were all of the queen moth er's choice. They were "My God, My Father, While I Stray," "Now the La borer's Task Is O'er," and "I Heard a Voice From Heaven." queen in car- mother and tile royal ladies riages. When the funeral procession started every street car in London came to a standstill for a quarter of an hour. All the public houses in London were closed while the procession was pass ing. No Distinction Shown. There was no distinction as to per son nor were there any ticket privi leges for the lying in state in West minster ball. Ail had to take their turn in line At St. George's chapel, at Windsor, from whence the body was carried to its final resting place the carved stalls were removed in order to give place to timber seating. Otherwise not a tenth of those entitled to attend would have been able to enter. The chapel- was draped with violet hang ings. The service held in Westminster abbey did not form any part of the royal funeral. It was a memorial service held especially for those mem bers of the house of lords and house of commons, who were unable to go to Windsor. Electric standards were fixed around the place in Westminster ball where the catafalque stood. The public was admitted until ten o'clock at night. The catafalque occupied the spot on which Gladstone's catafalque stood. The coffin was sealed and draped and surmounted by some of the royal regalia and King Edward's field mar shal'p sword. The coffin was sealed and draped and surmounted by some of the royal regalia and King Edward's field mar shal's sword. The court removed to Windsor the day before the funeral. The arch bishop of Canterbury, assisted by Canon Wilberforce, conducted a short service at Westminster hall on the ar rival of the body on May 17. The members of both houses of parliament attended this service. Neither M. Loubet, M. Delcasse nor M. Clemenceau formed part of the French mission io attend the funeral of King Edward. Premier Briand in tended to go, but also gave up the idea, owing to the fact that Emperor William was there. Under these cir cumstances the mission was purely formal. It consisted of M. Pichon, minister of foreign affairs General Dalstein, military governor of Paris Admiral Marquis and an attache rep resenting President Failieres. Roosevelt Among the Monarchs. Ex-President Roosevelt, who was named as snecial envoy of the United States to attend he iuneral of King Edward, was presented to King George soon after his arrival in London. Mr. Roosevelt occupied a place with the visiting monarchs in the funeral pro cession and attended the burial at Windsor. Jackies Drew Carriage. King George being so closely identified with the navy, the naval con tingents took a prominent part in the ceremonies. Bluejackets drew the gun carriage to Windsor, as they did the carriage which bore the body of Victoria, although on that occasion they did so because the horses be came restive. Soldiers from the king's company, grenadier guards, kept sentry watch over the body in the throneroom at Buckingham palace. They were re lieved each hour With simple cere mony some one of the visiting royal ties entered the room every now and then, and the widowed queen went there frequently. Body in Magffificent Tomb. The body of King Edward lies with that of his immediate ancestors in the magnificent mausoleum at Frogmore, in the Home park of Windsor castie. In this structure, erected by Queen "Victoria at a cost of $1,000,000. Prince Albert Edward, father of the late a SLA a 2***? r3S% king, was laid to rest in 1861. In *he same year Queen Victoria's mother, the duchess of Kent, was buried in an elaborate tomb in"the grounds near by. In 1901 Queen Victoria herself was buried in the mausoleum beside her husband. The structure is probably one of the most elaborate of the kind in exist ence. It was planned in minute detaJJ by Queen Victoria as a memorial to the prince consort. The general pub lic is not admitted to the chamber where lie the royal bodies in two im mense sarcophagi, but the spot is a great magnet for tourists, dozens of whom inspect the marble mausoleum daily.

The sale of royal manuscripts, which Is to take place at Sotheby's shortly, will bring together a number of Inter ested autograph collectors, for there are some of unusual interest.

Indeed, it will appear as if the sale of these letters is likely to bring to light a great deal of unraveled mystery and to afford in formation in reference to some of the unsolved stories of court intrigue of those days.—American Register, i«n don.

Some years ago the proprietor of a hotel in southern New Hampshire told the following story: He said that when he was a boy he had occasion to go into the garret of his house one morning and that the family cat fol lowed him up the stairs. One of the windows was open, and when tliev en ttred the garret a frightened mouse jumped out of the window, and tho cat, jumping after it, cuught it in mid air and, whirling round, jumped back again into.the same window.

The boy spoke up quickly, knowing what was to bo said: "Pa, would those red peppers Tiake you smart if you eat ail of them?" H)g father replied: "Yes, SOB." The Idea.
