COLLIDING WITH KINGS.
One) of David Iter's Queer I'.sperle nces la
New Yoiik, Aug. 1. At the time when
tho grunt Russian statesman, Nikolai
Aloxeluvitch Mllutlno (thu chief ugent
iu bringing nbout tho sorf emancipation
of 1601), wni Ural nttnckctl by tho dlsenao
which proved fatnl to him uouio years
Inter, his nlllcial residence nt St. Peters
burg was thronged for several days to
gether by nntlvo grnndcoa of overy class,
.ill engor to leiirn which wny tho chnnccs
of life nnd death woro likely to turn in
tho easo of u man whom tunny of thorn
loved and inoro of thoin feared, nnd
whoso vncnnt pluco not n fow among
them would have been very glad to (111.
It wns nt this tltno that I, luippenlng to
bo staying in tlio house, met with nn ad
vonturo thnt would Imvo tnmlo an ad
mirable "stngo situation" for ono of tho
comediosofHcriboorDtituas tho younger.
Running briskly down stain ono morn
ing to 6tnrt out for my early walk, 1 on
countered it man who was coming up so
hurriedly that beforo 1 could stop myself
wo ran right into each other. Tho stran
ger a man of middlo age, whoso broad,
heavy, rather sullen faco was framed In
a pair of long grayish brown fildo whisk
ers woro the uniform of n Russian naval
officer, but tlu Increasing coi pulcnco of
his short, thick sot tlgure and tho dull,
shortsighted look of his large gray eyes
(in ono of which wan stuck a gold rim
med eyeglass) were anything butsalldr
As wo clashed together he growled out
something that sounded not nt nil liko n
blessing, but I Hew past before ho could
finish and reached tho foot of tho stairs
just in time to collide with another man,
younger and taller than the last, whoso
thick cavalry mttstacho and firm, hnnd
boiuo, sun browned '.ice harmonized
well with Ids drev- .-llvo green unl
form nnd (.H .... ! 'r- of a Rus
I was just beginning to npologlzo,
when ho caught mo by tho arm and said,
iu a tone of undisguised anxiety:
"Do you know how Nikolai Alexelo
vltcli (Nicliolat. tlm eon of Alexis) is this
"A llttlo better," answered 1, and
I arrived at tho front door just at tho
right moment for n third collision with
another visitor who was just entering
n tall, stately, very handsome man hi
the gorgeous uniform of tho Russian im
perial guard, with a troubled, weary
look in lits largo, lustrous eyes, nud a
visiblo tingo of gray in his short, dark
I apologized for tho accident, but ho
was apparently in such a hurry to pass
in that ho hardly noticed mo. But I had
noticed him sufficiently to remark tho
closo resemblauco of his face to a por
trait familiar to all Russia, and 1 began
to havo a dismal suspicion that my hav
ing bumped against him in this way wns
neither more nor less than high treason I
This suspicion was changed to certainty
on my return from my walk, when M.
Milutino's son nnd heir, Vury (George),
a sharp, littio 10-year-old (who has slnco
had somo stranga adventures iu Contrnl
Asia), told me, as well as ho could speak
for laughing, that tho three men whom
I had jostled so unceremoniously were
tho czar's eldest brother, tho Grand Duko
Constantino (lord high admiral of Rus
sia), liis second brother, tho Grand Duko
Nicholas, commander-in-chief of tlio
Russian army, and last, but certainly
not least tho czar hlmsclfl
A fow years later, I was tolling this
story to somo frionds in England, when
ono or them suddenly remarked: "Well,
it's odd that almost tho same thing hap
pened just tho other day to an old lady
that I know very well, who has lived a
good many years in Vienna. She's ono
of tho strong minded sort and dolights
in rambling nil nlono through tho most
cut throat slums of tho town, with no
weapon but a big cotton umbrella.
Ilowovcr, there's no fear of any man
molesting her, for tho mero look on her
faco when anything puts her out would
bo enough to scaro tho boldest thief who
over stolo a purse.
"Well, bIio was coming homo lato ono
evening from ono of these- adventurous
rambles of hers, whon thero suddenly
camo on such n tremendous pour of rain
that oven her trusty umbrella was not
proof against it, mid alio began to look
about for some place of shelter. Dy
good luck sho happened to bo closo to
tho arched gutoway of a concert hall,
whero somo famous singer of' tlio day
was giving an ovening performance; so
in sho went.
"Sho had hardly got Inside when sho
found that sho wus not tho only ono who
had run for tlio samo port. Three men
wcro crouching under tho archway who
seemed to bo oven worsoofT than herself,
for thero wasn't a single-umbrella nmong
thorn, nnd tho foremost of tho threo
whom sho could just uiako out in tho
dim light to bo nn old man witli a long
wliito beard was shivering liko a dog
tied up in a wet sack. So sho took pity
on him, nnd went up and offered him
her umbrella to go homo with, saying
that ho would certainly catch a very
bad cold if ho stayed whero ho was.
" 'Madam.' said tlio old gentleman with
a magnificent bow, "I would not for tho
world deprive a lady of her umbrella on
such a night as this, from any tsolllsh re
gard for my own personal comfort.'
"Tlio voico sounded familiar to her
(for sho know every ono nbout tho Aus
trian court), nnd when sho camo to look
closer at him, who should ho bo but old
King Ludwig, of Bavaria, Wagner's
friend (tlio "mad king," as tlioy used to
call him later on), and tho other two
wcro tho elector of Wurtcmburg and tho
Grand Duko of Baden t
"You may think what a lot of jokes
wcro made about "tho threo kings of
Cologne," nnd all that sort of thing,
when tho story got abroad noxt duy, and,
better still, ono of tho ultra Radical
Vienna pnjicrs unnounced that tho con
cert had gono oiT very well, but had
been slightly disturbed at ono oint by u
nobf mado In tho gateway by u lot of
kings nnd other low people who had con
gregated there.' " David Km

play of rciiiiIuo ehwk, is worthy to l placed

"Yes, and hero's n clgnrottn to imoko bo

Tho cotions nnd clgnrotto were handed
over nud I followed tho fellow lusldo to ob
serve how ho succeeded. Ho passed tho door
nud tho usher seated him. I could not resist
tho temptation of Informing tho uinungor of
"That bent anything 1 havo heard of," ho
said. "If ou know where tho fellow Is sit

a bunch of flowers resting on his desk.
Tho fellow w as located and nn usher enrried
