France, as well as of Spain, Las palvuuized
Into llfo' tlie law of expulsion concerning' the
-heads of houses of pretenders.
That law excludes the Due d'Or-
leans as head ot the younger branch
of tho Dourbons, Prince Victor as
chief of the Napoleonic house, and
Don Jaime as claimant of the old
Iiourbon or legitimist line.
Don Jaime, now duke of Madrid,
means business us far as the throne
of Spain Is concerned. Though he
looks upon his claim to the throne of
France as being more historical than
practical, still the fact that he has
.been proclaimed officially the head
of the legitimist line brings him. un
der the law of exclusion.
The expulsion of his father by Na
ateon 111. has no hearing upon the
Mt of the present claimant. Hither
to it law of expulsion has not been
able to keep him out of Spain, whith
er ho has gone whenever he pleased.
Very different from the old Ilour
bons, whoso motto was "no compro
mise and no surrender," is this pro
gressive prince and popular military
"unnn. Even the veteran republican,
lUenrl Rochefort, spooks of him ns being very
ViUxM-al and entirely of tho twentieth century.
SJnco his father's followers have pro
riatiotd Don Jaime their chief the Carlists
have taken on a new lifo and under exist
ing conditions In the penlnsulii ho may soon
find himself seated on the throne for which
his father and his grandfather vainly took the
field. It Is interesting to note In this connec-
tlon that Count Urbnln de Mallle. president of
the Carllst society of rails, offered a dukedom
:to a Boston merchant In consideration of
financial aid for the cause,
r Of those who have misgivings no one
tftands" more In fear und trembling thnn the
Dwager Queen Christina. For, while Don
'JUilmo has a qualilled admiration for her post
humous son, Alfonso XIII., he has supreme
coMwujit for the Intriguing ex-nun who' pre
vented his sisters from marrying Austrian
archdukes. At lllarritz he has frequently been
within speaking distance of his cousin, King
.Alfonso, though they have never exchanged
words. ' '
f Don Jaime is the hero of a novel, of which
U villain Is tho Due d'Albe and tho herolno

the Place du Talals de Bourbon. The famous
old legitimist said:
"Don Jalmo has censed to bo prince de
Bourbon just as Albert lOdward was no longer
prince of Wales after lie had become king.
When traveling Incognito he Is now tho duke
of Madrid. His title among legitimists is King
James I. of France. He has not yet selected a
title for Spain, but it will probably be Charles
VIII., ns bis father ruled over the Basque
provinces under the title of Charles VII. Thus
lar we have had no coronation, but we have
carried out- all the preliminary ceremonies.
The central council of legitimists, myself at
their head, walked three times around the
collln containing the remains of Don Carlos,
and three times did we proclaim the tradi
tional cry: 'Le rol est mort; vise le roi.' Wo
proclaimed Don Jaime, prince de Bourbon, the
- successor of that long and Illustrious line of
kings who have shed so much luster on
France. At this ancient and Interesting cere
mony the old Vendean chiefs were represented
by the count do Cathelinean.
"It will Interest Americana to know," ho
continued, "that tho husband of Miss Polk of
Tennessee, (loners! the Baron Chnrette, is one
of our most illustrious Vcndcnu chiefs, and as
brave a royalist as ever stood in shoe-leather.
The de Charettcs won undying fame as lead

"Don Jaime, or King James, ns we now call
him, wears the order of the Holy Spirit nnd
the order of the (lolden Fleece. We nre great
symbolists and these orders are emblematic
ot his royal Spanish house."
"I'pon what do you baso Don Jaime's claim,
count?" I asked.
"His claim to the throne of France Is based
upon the fact that he la a direct descendant of
King Louis XIV. In other words, he repre
sents the old llourbon or legitimist line. You
are aware that the story about the son of
Louis XVI. nnd Marie Antoinette having es
, caped the prison of the temple and having
lived In Holland under the name of "ordorf.
and ot his having left heirs is puro-fnvcntlon.
"But no one questions the historic claim of
our king. His majesty's claim to tho throno
of Spain Is based upon the Salic law, Don
' Jalmo Is the fourth claimant. It was In favor
' of the late Queen Isabella, mother bt the In-
fniita Kulalie, so well known In America, that,

"Our king's late father. Dom Carlos, ruled
over the north of Spain for seven years under
the title of Charles VII. Previous claimants
have fought for the throne of their ancestors
and none of them was a braver or a better
equipped soldier than Don Jaime."
"What is your flag?" was my next question.
"The flag of the Crand Monarch is our
flag. Tho Hag which Moated over my chateau
in Brittany, where the late Dom Carlos was .
banqueted nnd expelled from France .for a
speech he made under my roof. Ours la the
white flag with the fleursde lys. Sooner than
change that banner for the red, white and
blue, tho late Count de Chambord, who was
our King Henry V., declined the crown of
France when offered to him by Marshal Mac
Mahon. "Don Jalmo is now at the chateau of Fros
dorf In Austria. This was the property of the
count de Chambord, or King Henry V. He has
left It to Don Jalmo together with the family
pictures, documents nnd other papers belong-,
lng to tho legitimist succession! In .that old,;
Bourbon chateau his plans are mnturlng."'
"But, count, Is not the claim to 'tho throne
of France somewhat visionary?" I asked. v
"Not at all. It Is founded upon right: I
believe In the divine rights of kings. The
practical aspect of the question is that Don
Jalmo will concentrate all his energies upon
Spain, lie does not want a civil war and there
will bo none. Ho Is too much of a patriot to
lead Spaniard against Spaniard. A dynastic
crisis Is nt hand In Spain. King Alfonso Is a
i8tirper and' cannot last. The son of the Aus
trian cunoness and grandson of Queen Isabella
has not much Bourbou blood In his veins. The
recent ludlgnant explosion was one of out
raged patriotism. Old, feudal, romantic Spain
craves for a king who will put himself nt the
head of the army. King Alfonso wanting to
go to the front In Morocco Is like William J.
Bryan having been. appointed to a command' in

BEE FARM ON CITY ROOF.
Reading, Pa., has a "bee farm," so situated
that 90 per cent, of the people In that part of
town even do not know of its presence. To
the busy bees all roads seem to lead to this
pluce, for they can fly 50 feet up In the air
nnd still bo nbl to rfef.ch their home, without
coming In contact with humanity. At tho
foot of Neverslnk mountain, in the northwest
em section of the city, lives Julius Wagner,
On tho roof of his house are many bee hives.
Under tho window sills are a number of ho'8
leading to a garret room, where there nre
ninny more hives nnd where millions of busy
little workers come and go day by day, bring
ing each time a little honey from some clover
field, some tree that Is in bloom or from other
sources, thus helping Julius Wagner to con
duct the most successful and novel apiary li,
.' Mr, Wagner made his start In Reading 1
1867 with one hive, according to the Phil;
delphla Record. To this he added hive ufU
