ANY a queer tale,
mure weird and in
interesting than
any penned by
writers of fiction. Is
hidden away In the
records of myster
ious disappearances
kept by the Chicago
police department,
says the Chicago
Tribune, Between
prince the political effect cf the alliance
Is first considered, and then the physic
al and menta' condition of the Intend
ed bride. Frequently the physical
characteristics are placed before ail
others. Healthy mothers must he
chosen for future kings, or the race
degenerates and ceases to reign.
When it prince becomes of a mar
riageable age it Is intimated to him
that he would better marry the Prin
ces.) Ho-aml-So, and be generally does
It without further question. Some
times a list of two or three eligible
princesses Is given to him, from which
to choose. Sometimes there Is a royal
row before the marriage Is settled, but
•he prince almost Invariably yields at
last. Sometimes the prlneess "kicks,”
but not often. A young Indy of royal
blood Is brought up to expect In mar
ring • whomever shall be given to her.
All she lias to do Is to take plenty of
exercise, keep herself In perfect health,
Wait for thn iirincr who 1h wimp

Tim King of Denmark raised a fam
ily of daughters so remarkably hand
uom»■ and bealtby Hint they went like
hot cakes In the royal matrimonial
market, Icing taken by the very lilgh
• d personages, such as the Prince of
Wales and the Czar of Russia.
There was a great time trying to get
a wife for the Prince of Naples. That
unfortunate is deformed and not of
robust health. Ills legs are short and
his arms long, so that when he stands
up bis hands hang below his knees.
He used to say: "I shall never murry.”
Hut the line of Savoy most be perpetu
ated In the main branch, If possible;
and so finally the Princess Helene of
Montenegro was selected as a fitting
mate for the heir of the Italian crown.
She Is a big, robust girl, who could do
a day's work washing or climb a moun
tain without feeling It. Her husband*,
the prince, stands about as high as her
shoulder. She was educated in Russia
and wanted to marry the czar, hut it
was decided that the czarowitz had bet
ter marry Queen Victoria's grand
second son gave up all h a rights of !
succession when be married Miss Ebba I
Monk. Therefore It was considered ;
wise that Prince Charles should marry. |
He was 36 years old, and so far had !
neglected to pick out a princess, or
rather, his family, with culpable care
lessness had not done so for him. Hut
they suddenly awakened to the fact
that Charles was getting old, and that
human life Is "mighty unsartin," even
among royal people.
Meantime, down In Denmark, the
Princess Ingehorg was getting more
angular every day, and no royal prince
came a-looklng for her hand. They
sent her about so that she might for
age for herself and pick tip a royal hus
band, hut It was no use. As soon as
Ingehorg appeared the marriageable
princes sought a new boarding place.
Finally the Dowager Empress of
Russia, Ingehorg’s aunt, who Is now
running Queen Victoria a dose race as
champion matchmaker of the world,
thought, of Prince Charles of Sweden, i
The Swedish royal family were delight- >
ed. Had not the very greatest of |
monarchs and princes sought In mar- 1
rlage the hand of the Denmark girls?
Charles demurred, hut that did not
count. To Copenhagen he went the
other day, and to Prlneess Ingehorg j
he was married. His father led him to j
the altar, while the Princess of Wales j
and the Dowager Empress of Russia
brought ii)> the blushing Ingehorg. If
Charles hud any Idea of trying to es
cape at the last moment, he gave it up.
The odds were against him.
One fine young lady who was recent
ly been selected to he the mother of
kings Is the Princess Isabella of Or
leans. Albert, who married her, Is the
heir to the throne of tin- wicked old
King Leopold. If the house of Or
leans never again see* the throne of
j France, It will In the person of the fair
' Isabella Is a decided blonde, healthy
I and accomplished. In looking over the
! ki of the Catholic princesses of a mar
riageable age, young Albert's family
found none who pleased him more than
Isabella. It Is true her family are not '
In the king business Just at present,
but they had been, and Isabella was a
Jewel, anyway.
One royal match which has given
great satisfaction to Queen Victoria,
and which really seems to have been
a love mateh, was that celebrated re
cently between the Duke of Kchleswlg
llolstcin and the Princess Dorothea of
Saxc-Coburg, The bride Is the grand
daughter of the King of the Belgians,
and both she and her husband are rela
tives of Victoria.
Duke Ernest Gunther roamed about
the world until he arrived at the age
of 33 before he thought of matrimony.
Then one day he stopped at the castle
of Ebenthal to pay his respects to
Prince Philip of Saxe-Coburg. A romp
ing girl with short dresses and hair
down her back In a long braid was
brought out ami introduced to the rov

From the St. Paul Pioneer-Press:
There Is an interesting discussion go
ing 011 among farmers as to the value
of corn as fuel. Many of them claim
lhat corn is far superior to coal. Others
say that they do not like the idea of
using a food such as corn for fuel,
l.evl Gardiner, a prominent farmer,
speaking on this subject, said: "I have
proved after considerable experience
that corn makes a better and cheaper
fuel than coal. I.ast fall I had ten
acres of corn. From this crop I not
unly had sufficient fuel for winter and
spring use, but I also fed two of my
horses and one cow with corn for the
same length of time.'' J. C. Ueacb, an
old settler here, spoke In similar terms.
He said: "One winter I trailed a large
pinntlty of my corn for wood. I have
ilways regretted that transaction. The
wood burned up much more quickly
than the corn would have done. Corn
gives out a great deal more heat per
pound than either wood or coal. Corn
Is a clean fuel. It burn* with an In
tense heat. Home people don’t like the
Idea of burning corn. They say It Is
meant for food and not for fuel. Hut
what does that matter If It saves them
money? Corn as a fuel has two disad
vantages. First. It gives out such In
tense heat that It Is liable to Injure the
stove; second, a bln full of corn always
attracts rats to the house. The first
difficulty can ho removed with u suit
able stout stove. The second with a
few traps and cits. At the present
prices of corn and coal I believe It pays
Hie farmer to burn corn. One of the
most thrifty and successful farmers of
this neighborhood Is John Anderson.
He said : "There 1* no doubt lhat. when
coal Is dear and corn cheap farmers
should use corn for fuel. If the burn
lit ft ' ''III I"' •1 III* ' 'till lit* III II WXIIMI
assuredly tend to lower Die price of
"oal. I use corn for cooking purposes,
and think It Is far ahead of coal. A
fanner can grow a crop of corn on the
same land again and again, but lie
can't raise a coal crop, I raise enough
orn for feeding and fueling purposes,
Ihl* combination Is. I think, the beat
ind most economical for farmers,”
Whore tlie Flowera Would (Jo,
A certain young widow of Indlunap
ills, who has Just changed her weeds
ror brighter hues, gave a dinner pnrty
lot long ago, says the Indianapolis
Sentinel, The rooms were decorated
with a great profusion of flowera.
Roses In masses were on the mantels,
snd the dinner table fairly blossomed
In faet, the abundance of flowera was
unusual. One of the guests could re
strain her curiosity no longer, and
when the dessert was brought In said:
'Well, Mrs, lilank, you’re rather
spreading on the flowers tonight.”
‘Yes,” replied the fair widow, bright
ly, "but tomorrow I am going to take
i daughter the Princess Alix of Hesse.
The Princess Alix. who had been or
d#red to marry the crown prince of
Russia, made a great row', for they not
only ordered her to get ready to be
married at once, but also to change her
• religion instanter. She had been
brought up a strict Lutheran, but was
ordered to become an orthodox Greek,
and be quick about it. They hud a
lively time with the young lady, but
dually she did as she was told, and
B was married by the bedside of the dy

Him Sealing IntereNts.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 2V.~-In reliable
quarters It lu slated that the confer
ence between Russia, Japan anti the
United State*, now proceeding here In
reference to sealing In the tiering sea
anti the North I’aclflc, ha* udvanced
to an Important stage and that a prop
osition ha* been reduced to writing,
which, 1* accepted, will bring about a
complete change in the sealing ques
tlon. The pro|M)s|t|on Is said to be ac
ceptable to the United State*. It Is un
derstood to be acceptable similarly to
the Russian delegate* now here, but In
view of tho restriction* placed upon
them by their credentials It has been
thought desirable to cable St. Peters
burg for final Instnirtlon*.
The Japanese delegates are under
stood to have felt nt Ural that the prop
osition would not be In their Interest,
but on fuller conference Mr. Fajita de
termined to cable the substance of the
proposition to bis government, accom
panying It with a recommendation of
Its acceptance. Utile doubt Is enter
tained that Russia will aceept the prop
osition, and In view of Mr. Fajita's
recommendation it Is believed that
Japan will also Join In It.
The greatest secrecy Is preserved In
all official quarters as to the nature of
the propsltlon and II Is not officially
admitted thin any proposition has been
made. From equally reliable sources
It Is understood that the proposition
has a fur-reiiehlng scope and provide*
I for the mat' ' tut limitation or entire
mi:,pension of pelagic sealing or sealing
on I lie high Mens. Stlfll u decisive step,
' If Hgr. ed to by Russia, Jit pan and the
I'nted Wales, would, ll Is unders ood,
not Involve any concerted move to
menace tlieelalma of Oreat llrltaln and
Ciiuula to the right of pelagic sealing
on Hi high seas, hut would rather Im
a proposition expressive of the eon
elusions of the three most Interested
poweri;, that In the Interests of human
ity and the preservation of the seal
herds of their respective government*
all nations. Including Great llrltaln
and Its colony, Canada, should unite
with Russia, the United States and
Japan In such effective prevention of
pelagic sealing on the high seas as will
put an end to It and thereby secure the
preservation of the seals.
The deliberations of the conferees
lending up to the proposition were pro
ductive! of numerous Interesting and
Important features. All of the mem-,
licrs of the conference were placed tin
der a pledge of secrecy, and they have
maintained this with the greatest care.
The conferees having agreed on all
points. It only remains to hear from the
respective governments thev represent.
An adjournment was accordingly taken
until next Mondav, by which time it
Is not doubted the governments at Ft.
Petersburg and Toklo will have taken
final action.

behalf of the syndicate making offers.
The syndicate claims that ll would pro
ducef20,000,000moreto the government
than any other hid and urges the sale
to he postponed until December HI,
to enable congress to determine as to
the validity of the acceptance of the
bond In part payment. CoatPs K Co.
contend that by the sale of the Union
Pacific separately the United States
will be loser, while they (Coates Co.)
propose to pay the government fn full
for both road".
The (Inal cables message sent yester
day claims that the latest Scvhlff hid
Is very little better than the previous
litds, and that oner Mr. Sehlff has se
cured the Union Pacific he will have
the Kansas Pacific division at his
mercy and huy It at his own price. The
dispatch concludes:
"If the government secures a post
ponement of both sales until Decem

nish guarantees to pay In full the gov

NEW YORK, Oct. 28, The Herald
and World this morning quote Chuun
eey M. Depew, president of the New
York Control railroad, as s'tying that
the wreck at Garrison's last Sunday
waa caused hy a dynamite expulsion.
“Any one who Is familiar with rail
roading," raid Mr. Depew, “knows
that the continual pounding of trains
over a roadbed has the effect, of beat
ing It down until It Ik like a rock. That
roadbed has been in use forty years,
and the fact that It wus like a rock
is shown hy the fact that immediately
after the wreck, before the workmen
bad filled In any, the break showed a
clean-cut perpendicular cleavage.
"The popular notion that this was
due to a landslide Is not borne out by
this. When there Is a landslide the
hank takes the shape of an Inclined }
plane. The fact that this was found
as It was shows that the break must j
have been formed In an unusuul way. j
The only thing that could have done ;
It would have been a stick of dynamite
rammed down In the roadbed. That
would have done It.”
