He can  only be just Bowser."        M. QUAD.  THE QUEEN AT HOME,  Her   Majesty   Is  Very  Buay  Even   In  Her Vocations.  Tho Queen shows none of thnt dislike for Buckingham Palace that wus  displayed by the late Queen Victoria,  und spends many weeks there in the  course of the year. She has converted her private suite of apartments in  the palace into ono of the most comfortable residences it would be possible to imagine. These rooms, which  number nine in all, aro situated on  the first floor of the main building of  the palace, and over look the beautiful gardens, just now at their best,  with the lake just visible in the distance. These rooms have been entirely refurnished since Her Majesty took  up her residence"here upon the King's  accession, and immediately adjoin the  larger suite occupied by the King.  The whole of Their Majesties' apartments are entirely cut I off from the  rest of the palace, so that privacy is  assured.  Owing to the heavy and fatiguing  duties that Her Majesty is called upon to undertake ..while in London during the season, nnd the fact thai it  is usually past midnight before she.  is able to retire, she rises considerably later than when she is at Sand-  ringhnm or in Denmark al the beautiful villa she shares with her sister,  the Empress Marie of Russia, on tho  banks of- the Sound, with the gloomy  old castle of Elsinore just to be scon  across the waters. It is not much  before nine that the Queen takes her  cup of tea or chocolate���������usually Uie  latter ��������� and loaves her rooms for a  stroll in the grounds until tho light  breakfast of which she partakes is  ready.  The forenoon is almost entirely devoted by the Queen to her correspon-'  deuce and other routine duties. Her  Majesty's post-bag almost rivals that  of the King in its'bulk, and it takes  her some hours to go through it. and  deal with the contents.  Lunch, afternoon calls or a host of  other duties and then-Jive o'clock tea.  These teas are, however, quite unceremonious, but, of course, there are certain little rules that have lo be observed. For instance, no one riiay  speak to the Queen without first being' addressed.  The King and the Prince of Wales  are both particularly fond of dropping  in for a cup of tea and a chat with  those present; but they are quite on  the same footing as any other guest.  Tea is served at Buckingham Palace in which is known as the Tapestry Room, which immediately adjoins the Queen's private boudoir.  Tho guests assemble as near five  o'clock as possible, and await the entry of the Queen, when they rise. The-  Queen hns a pleasant smile and a  word for all present, and conversation  speedily becomes general, Her Majesty singling those out whom she wishes  to address more directly. She takes  her seat at. tlie table _ and pours out  the tea in person. Twenty minutes is  the allotted time for the guests to remain, unless they are directly invited  to remain longer by Her Majesty.  Anything savoring of "scandal" or  unjust criticism of those not present  is strictly taboo at these teas, and one  very well known society lady now  fails to find herself invited to the  palace on an afternoon through in an  unguarded moment, speaking somewhat slightingly of the German  Emperor.  ft******* * * * *���������< ^ * * * * *  BABY'S GREAT DANGER  DURING  HOT WEATHER.

Advice General Wallace 'Is ��������� Said  Have Given Abdul Hamid II.  When General Lew Wallace was the  American plenipotentiary in Constantinople he saw Abdul Hamid 11. at  close quarters���������too close for comfort  really���������but his involuntary inspection  ivas decidedly convincing as to the  ml tan's timidity.  It seems' that from the day of his  presentation to the sullan tlie general  had.grown tn favor at the court and  w*������s frequently "commnnded" to attend  merely from the personal liking ot  Abdul [lamid for the American minister and the enjoyment of conversation  with him. In those dnys the sultan  was particularly vexed over affairs in  Egypt. He felt that Egypt wns his  pcrsonnl property, yet England hud  taken the control of the country out  of his hands entirely. She had hardly  said "by your leave," but had "tid  vised" liim thnt for the good of Egypt  he, Abdul [Inmid IL, bad better let  her and then had gone ahead.  He had accepted the advice been use  he had nothing to. say "no" wild.  Without a (loot what could any one  sny to England? This forced nci-iiles--.  cence..worried the sultan continuously  until he could not endure longer without madness. In his distress he summoned General Wallace and described  to him In detail his humiliating comli  I ion.  The general listened with friendly  sympathy, aud the sultan, being relieved in thus talking In confidence to  a man whom lie knew to be sincere  nnd altogether free from selfish Interests, asked the minister what he could  do under the circumstances. General  Wallace said that he appreciated the  trust and couOdenee of the sultan, but  that, being the representative omVial  ly of the United States' of America, he  could not advise the ruler of anothei  country as to what stops that ruler  should take against a third power, especially when tin's third power was on  friendly terms with his own country.  Tho -sultan acknowledged the cor  redness of this position, but besought  the general to make an exception, saying that there was no other man in  the empire to whom he could go for  one single word of honest, disinterested advice. But the ..general repeated  that he could not be false to his duty  as a minister and envoy from his government.  -Then said the sultan. "Tell me ns a  private Individual; tell me as a friend.''  Tills appeal touched General Wallace  -deeply, and he said, "As a friend, then  and a private citizen, I will say this,  that were I Id the position you have  described to mo I should put myself  at the head of my troops and flight to  the bitter end."  At these words the blood loft tho  sultan's face, aud he fell to the flooi  in a dead faint. lie felt their truth,  and he" knew, furthermore, that ho  lacked the strength of; character, tho  force, the will powery to carry out such  a program.  What would have happened hnd tho  sultan's heart been physically weak ns  well Is not easy to conjecture. As it  was, General Wallace did not leave  the Yildiz kiosk until long after the  hour ho hnd intended, and Abdul Un-  mid II. never ngnin sought a confided  lial interview with the author of "Hen  [lur."

RICHARDSON.,  "You are entirely too young and attractive to chaperon Ruth," observed  Mrs. Cuscadden, survoying her companion with a cool, critical glance.  VlJut she fairly has hysterics when I  suggest her going home, with me. And  really the dear child has seen nothing'  of. Paris, and she wants another,week  or so in London. If you could, my  dear Leslie"���������  Mrs. Leslie Burns lustantly replied  that she could and she would���������with  "pleasure. So it happened tuat Mrs.  Rogers Cuscadden sailed alone for  New York to settle some vexed questions regarding the new house. Her  parting warning to Mrs. Burns was:  "Now, remember, Leslie, uo* international entanglements for Ituth. You  know how Mr. Cuscadden feels on .the  subject. Besides, I want to bring her'  out this season heart whole. A love  affair Is always a handicap for a debutante."  Never did chaperon use more graceful tact in executing her trust. WltlK  out making enemies she warded off  .the "many admirers attracted to the  vivacious young heiress until George  Hackett appeared'on the scene, dropping from some unheard of point In  the orient. Well bred, well groomed,  well tailored, breezy.and alert, he was  diplomacy proof.  Attaching himself to their party of  two, he proved distressingly convenient and desirable. IIo'knew his Paris  by heart and steered his countrywomen from boredom with a skillful  hand. Ruth boldly espoused his cause  and Informed Mrs. - Burns that she  was having a much jollier time since  Mr. Haekett's arrival, whereupou Mrs.  Burns read her charge the first long  lecture of their companionship���������not  that it would do any good, she argued,  ~ for hdw could'any heart whole girl  'withstand George Hackett?,     '  When the stay in Paris dre_w to a  close Mrs. Burns heard with dismay  that Mr. nackett -was/accompanying  < them as far as London. And London  ���������was but Paris repeated. Mr. Hackett  knew-just what points of interest Ruth  would enjoy and what she should  navold. lie was more useful than Baedeker and Infinitely better company.  But when, the day' for sailing-from  Southampton was set and Mrs. Burns  learned that the ubiquitous Mr. Hackett had taken passage on' the samo  boat despair filled her soul. To the experienced chaperon no episode is more  heavily charged with danger than an  ocean voyage. At flrst she had been as  rude as her gentlo nature would permit, but the more chilly her reception  the more assiduously would he devote  himself to Ruth. If she occasionally'  .relented and treated him with gracious  tolerance Mr. Hackett showed eager  appreciation of her favor and waxed  brilliant  She was thinking It all over tonight  ns she sat alone on the deck. In less,  ���������s, than twenty-four hours, the captain  had said, they would be in New Yorlc  harbor. Then must come the accounting to Mrs. Cuscadden. No doubt at  this very moment, under the cover of  songs in the saloon, Mr. Hackett was  whispering into the ears of Ruth those  tender words which he should not be  permitted to whisper.  The traitorous chaperon felt a sudden twitching at her heartstrings.  Should she defy fate in the form of  Mrs. Cuscadden? For herself It would  mean but a broken friendship; for  George Hackett it meant happiness for  life. 'Strangely enough, she did not  seem to consider Ruth's happiness.  She was thinking only of her girlhood,  when Haekett's friendship had been  such, a very dear thing; when she  would have given him���������promised him  ���������anything he might ask, but be had  not asked.  The singer had finished, and the soft  strains of n popular waltz floated out  on the night air. A great wave of tenderness swept over Leslie Burns. Why  should she stand between the man she  had loved and the happiness he now  craved? ,'~ r \  Alas for the confiding, complacent  Mrs. Cuscadden and her maternal  plans! ��������� .  Mrs. Burns drew her cape more  closely and shivered slightly. A shadow fell across the bar of light streaming from the gangway. A voice clear,  but not loud, broke tho silence brooding on the deck.  "May I have my cigar out hero with  you, Mrs. Bums?" "Then as he dropped into tho chair at her side: "What  a bore one's traveling companions become directly land is sighted! I don't  blame you for getting off. to yourself."  "Oh", itv wasn't that exactly," murmured Mrs. Burns. Then, with the nlr  of trying to fill in an nwkwurd pavs'e,  she added: "But there Is a subtle Joy  ih feeling thnt tomorrow night we  shall see the New York harbor lights  gleaming. There's no place In the  world just like New, York to us."  "Sha'H you stay In town?" queried  :p[.nckett. ,  "Just a day or so. I've a week prom-  " Ised to Mrs. Davenport at Tuxedo."  "Glad to hear that.   I shall be In  "Tuxedo next week.   Harry's taken a  box down thero for the rest of tho sea-  sou."  ."But tho Cuscaddcns will be at the  bot springs until their new place is  finished." The remark sounded strangely flat to Mrs. Burns, and lustantly sho  ^rfvlsued sho had not given vent tp her  thought. Again sho coveted im nwkwurd pause.

That poetry is not so badly paid af  ter all is proved by Mrv Algernon  Charles Swinburne's will, the pro-  , bate of which was recently granted  Mn London. His estate has been valued by the sole executor, Mr. Walter  Theodore Watts-Dunton, at $121,000  gross, including personalty of the net  value of $99,500. The whole of thn  property haa-been left to Mr. Watts-  Dunton. /  Tennvson left $235,000. He appoint  ed .his son his literary executor, and  bequeathed to " him all his manuscripts, literary, works,- and copyright, subject to the payment of the  income therefrom to Lady Tennyson  for her life. Lord. Tennyson's estate  of Aldworth, the Farringford estate,  the manor of Priors, and the rest ot  his real"estate were put under trustees for Lady Tennyson for her-life.  The copyrights of the late Poet Luu-'  reate's works were valuable, and  Tennyson was paid by the publishers  handsome sums for his poems.  Robert Browning, of whose will "A.  Tennyson" and "F. T. Palgrave  were the-attesting witnesses, left personalty in England of the value of  $33,300. The will was in Browning s  own handwriting, with the initial letters of all the nouns substantive in  capitals, after the old style. Victor  Hugo, who, like Lord Tennyson, attained the age of eighty-three years,  -had personal estate in England to  the amount of $460,000. Dr. Charles  Mackav's property was valued at $13,-  000, and that of Eliza Cook at $10,000.  Matthew Arnold's estate amounted to  $5,000 His will, in his own handwriting, was one of the shortest that  have ever come under probate: It,  was: "I leave everything of which I  die possessed to my wife, Frances  Lucy." Mr. Frederick Locker-Lamp-  son left $150,000, JVlr. Coventry Pat-  more $43,000, and- Mr.. William Morris, who died in 1896, $225,000.

The Party He Belonged To  A matron of the most determined  character was encountered by a young  woman reporter on a country paper,  who was sent out to interview leading  citizens.as to their politics.  "May I see Mr. ?" she asked of  a stern-looking woman who opened  the door at one house. ,  "No, you can't," answered the  matron decisively.

The loss of Calcutta and the hideous tragedy of the  Black Hole were  no  sooner  reported   in Madras  than  an English expedition was 'despatched   under  Colonel   Clive   to  recover  the captured fortress and avenge the  crime perpetrated   on  the   unfortunate garrison.    In the hostilities' that  fdlowed,   Clive  defeated   the   forces  of   the  guilty   nabob, .Surajah   Dowlah, on the plains of Plassy, and regained   Calcutta,  while  the  conquered prince fled in trepidation back to  his   capital   of  Moorshedabad,   being  the first to boar to his subjects there  -the news of his own disgrace.    The  royal   fugitive  was.   however,   followed up by the English in conjunction  with   Meer Jaflier,    a   native   chief,  who  now became the recognized  nabob   in  place of the  fallen   ruler  of  Bengal.    The deposed  prince  held a  council with his advisers about midnight   after   the   battle, . and   there  refused  all  advice to surrender, - expressing' iiis   determination   to   proceed  further up the  river to Patna,  where,   through   the    fidelity   of the  governor, he.expected to find safety.  Accordingly,   he  disguised / himself  in humble garb, and  with a favorite  wife and one attendant, 'who carried  a casket of^his most precious jewels,  tie boarded a barge and set out.    Arriving at Rajemahl,  a good distance  from  the starting-point, his boatmen  insisted   upon  resting   for   the  night  after    their   exertions,   and   the   ex,  nab'-b  sought concealment -in  a  deserted garden.   In the morning, however, .a man of-low caste, whose ears  the   prince,   in   a  fit   of   rage,   had  formerly   caused   to   be   cut  off, discovered him, and in  revenge betrayed  the  presence of  the enemy to a  brother of Meer Jaflier.  A band of the new nabob's soldiers  at once hastened to the vicinity to  seize their prey, and surrounded and  arrested Surajah Dowlah while "still  in ��������� the garden. The captors then  conveyed their prisoner back to the  capital, subjecting him during the  passage to every species of indignity.  Arriving there, the wretched prince  wn3 dragged like a felon into the  palace he had so lately occupied  with all the pomp of eestern royalty,  and Meer Jafner at once gave order3  that the captiv* be withdrawn while  the council deliberated on his fate.  Some recommended clemency, others, among them his son Meeran, a  mere vouth, urged the-safe expedient  of instant death. The new nabob  .hesitated, and in the meantime,  Meeran persuaded him lo retire and  leave the care of the prisoner to his  hands. With some presentiment of  what would follow, the nabob yielded, and Meeran lost no time in sending a band of assassins to tbe apartments of the captive. The latter met  hi* fate with weak and abject lamentations, and his remains were a little  later borne through the streets upon  an elephant, an act which served to  reduce his servile followers to implicit obedience to,Meer Jaflier, behind whom was the might of a power  which later established the Indian  Empire under British rule.

When- Bathing Was Rare.  In some old English court memoirs  of the eighteenth century it is stated  that When George IV. was a baby he  wns bathed only once a fortnight.  That was thought to be plenty often  enough in those days for a child to  be washed. When one of George's  little sisters hud measles the royal  mother gave most careful instructions that the child's linen was not  to be changed too soon, as she feared  that some careless attendant would  clothe it in garmehts insufficiently  aired and so "drive in the rash." In  those days people were much afraid  of clean linen and bathing.' It was  believed the complete bodily ablutions were weakening, yet prince,  peer and peasant alike called in at  every ailment the doctors of the  period, who bled them into a state of  weakness  and   sometimes death.
