aoeen re nt'a daily life during the

M 'Poor queen I This is the exo'amt
tlao eo- often heard of late, day after
day, as matters grow worse and worie,
as the Spanish disasters repeat them-
' selves, and as the throne of the little
king seems slipping from her hands,
into which it was given in trust. I see
bar majesty looking careworn and anx
ious. Evan her drives are becoming
tower and fewer. It would surely ap
peal to any mother In thi world were
. she to see the wsy this queen mother
each day teema to cling clo-er and clueer
to her boy, as though to shield him from
lb dangers closing about him with al
aaost fatal force. Very touching to wit
Bees it. Her worst enemies recognise
In the queen personal qualities worthy
of the highest admiration. The queen
osed every mesns at her disposal to
prevent war. Today and ever since the
war began, thi gr. at occupation of the
queen is toJnd the quickest way for in
termination. At many of the councils
held at the palace of late the qneen has
burst into tears, begging and urging bur
Ministers to seek a solution for the
terms of peace, which they v-em incap
able ol materialising. Peace with the
queen, with common sense, seems to be
of snob vital importance and which bar
ministers keep postponing with the
word so iaul to Bptiu maoaoa (to
morrow). "
