a few hats and gowns.
I     I  have seen in Paris a'Jady who in
her day played a pari  on astill more
iTillianfc    stage than that of Willieliniiia, ��� mid     who  was   . walking  the
si roots of Ihe     "City of Light" u'n-
l.'iiown and unregarded.   This was the
ex-Empress    Eugenie.   Her  hair   was
white,   but her     figure/ still  retained
soine'thing of   ".its' old -grace, -and"in-
her  countenance   the  dazzling  beauty
of yore ha.d left its traces.
On one occasion I saw her in the
gardens of the Tdileries1, where once
she had reigned as the Empress of
lhe most brilliant nation in Europe,
the cynosure' of all the world. She
was walking slowly along, accompanied only by a lady companion.
1 lien suddenly she stopped, intending to pick a (lo\\er from the bed.
Hut she recollected that-it'was-forbidden to pluck [lowers, so she glanced up and down the path somewhat
furtively to make sure that there
was no guardian in sight, and then
stooping gathered a bunch of violets.
If was said that during thc last
great Explosion at Paris no less a
person than the Emperor William II.
had been a visitor and one of the
French papers gave a circumstantial
account also of his having been ures-
ent during the visit of the Czar.
These stories I'do not believe, but it
is true that during the. lifetime of
his grandfather, the Emperor- William' I., he passed three days in Paris incognito, unknown even to the
German embassy, and enjoyed himself  in  his heart's  content.
An amusing story of incognito was
cine told lo me by the representative
of a great American .journal. King
Milan called on him in Paris, and
they adjourned lo a quiet room in a
restaurant. "Milan was on his beam
ends in those hays, lie had grown

Iliads of dissipation, lie was very

sh'oit of money, but he had hit upon

My friend Knew many American
heiresses? Yes. Well, many an American heiress would give a fortune
to he queen! If, then, he could find
an American heiress worth four million sterlino- Mi;Ian would arrange the
marriage with Alexander. Then Alexander would have a million, and
"Milan   the  remainder.       ��*"
In course of   the discussion  Milan
consumed  several   small   tankards   of
beer,  which be cleverly balanced one
on  top of the other.
The marrwge project failed, partly because my I'rit-n 1 suspected Milan's worthiness about that milliiMi.
The suspicion was rather conPned
bv Hie fact; that as Milan waddled off
with an affable "Ta.ta." he left my
friend to pay for the beer.       S.L.R.
