MPEROR WILLIAM highly pleased
tho democratic elomont which Is
anxious ho should tnako It possi
ble for thorn to remain loyal to
him, by his gracious consent to
tho morganatic marriage of Prince
Oscar, his fifth son, and the
sprightly Countess Ina von Basse-wltz-LevItzow,
the empress' maid
a inaeea me recent nistorv or Eu
ropean royalty would lead to the belief that the
mysterious theory of "equal birth" Is rapidly
breaking down. Slnco beautiful Princess Sophia
of Soxe-Welmar killed herself because she was
restrained from wedding a simple nobleman the
disintegrating tendency has been still stronger.
Probably the greatest single factor In breaking
down the walls of Hohenzollorn tradition of ex
elu8lveness Is the curious position of Queen Mary
She Is the granddaughter of a German mor
ganatic marriage. Her grandfather, son of Duke
Alexander of Wurtemburg, renounced his royal
rank to contract a morganatic union with the
Polish Countess Claudine von Rhedy. He was
then created prince and duke of Teck.
So the Tecks do not belong to the "higher no
bility" of Germany. This class Includes only
those who hold the title under the holy Roman
empire. If Princess Mary of Teck had remained
In Germany she could only have been the mor
ganatic wife of even the youngest son of a reign
ing German family.
Indeed, her marriage with a member of a fam
ily which bad once reigned, but long ago lost Its
possessions, would have been morganatic.
By this quaint theory of "equal birth." a mar
quis or even a duko may not have the "equal
birth" of a plain count, supposing the count fam
ily Is in the musty old list of the holy Roman
empire and the duke and marquis are not.
The Inconsistency of the "equal birth" theory
was once admitted with much sang frold by
Kaiser Frledrlch, father of the present emperor,
according to an anecdote widely quoted. A coun
try gentleman of tho lowest rank was discussing
families with Frledrlch and Anally exclaimed: "I
can't say I understand all these rules, but I claim
my family Is qulto as good as the.HohenzolIqrns!"
"Very true," quoth tho kaiser, "but tho Hohen
Eollerns. have got on faster!"
Perhaps the better standing of "unequal mar
riages" Is to be attributed to the almost uniform
felicity of such matches. Two non-royal mar
riages in the English reigning family, that of
Queen Victoria's daughter Louise to the late duke
of Argyll and of King George's sister Louise to
the duke of Fife, turned out most auspicious to
the parties directly involved and at tho samo
tag between tho English rulers and their people.
In Germany Frederick William II, king of Prus
sia from 1744 -to 1797, bought off his royal wife to
agree to a separation so he could morganatlcally
marry Frauletn von Voss, a maid of hqnor to his
daughter, Princess Frederick. Saying It was sim
ply a matter of Btate, the king's father-in-law, the
old duke of Brunswick, actually arranged the
separation of his royal daughter and the mor-

ganatlc marriage with
her rival. There was
little romnnco about
this transaction, but
the king proved hap
pier with his mor
ganatic wife than he
had been with his
mate of "equal birth."
So eager was Prince
Constance of Hohen
xollern to marry mor
ganatlcally tho daugh
ter of Baron Schenk
that he abdicated the
governorship of the
principality of Hohen
zollern In 1850 In fa
vor of tho king of
Prussia. Tho king
graciously created tho

WHERE EMERALDS COME FROM
i Where do they come from those flashing
tones of pure pellucid green that often form
the central setting of beauty's choicest gems?
Diamonds form but satellites when that rarest
of Jewels, a perfect emerald, flashes Its fire or
lends its sheen to the jewel-lncniBted crown of
royalty. Its birth Is hidden In the mystery of
nature's alchemy, but Its beauty and charm have
been recognized from the very dawn of history.
EmeraldB flashed on the shield of Aaron; the
Ptolemies of Egypt treasured them, and their
lapidaries knew the art of engraving on their
hard surfaces the mystic symbols of their ancient
faith; tho Theban tombs revealed choice emer
alds among their long-burled treasures, while
Herculaneura and Pompeii have added their quota
to the greed of modern excavators. Nerothat
half-mad monster who once ruled the deBtlnies
of Romo, used an enormous emerald for a mono
cle, and In the filmy fabric of the gowns of
Cleopatra emeralds shone In verdant luster.
Mt. Zabarah, in Upper Egypt, is said to have
been tho source of many of these ancient gethB,
but centuries have passed since theso prolific
mines were exhausted, and modern Jewelers must
now depend upon the weBtern homlsphere for
In tho spoils Plzarro Bent to Spain were found
the first flno specimens of American emeralds,
and thus was revealed another source of the
manifold wealth of the now world. Perhaps the
most valuable single emerald found In modern
times Is tho ono In that famous collection of
gems owned by the duko of Devonshire.
It Is said to be a perfect hexagonal crystal,
weighing eight ounces and 18 pennyweights, and
two Inches long. It came from the mines of
Colombia, and It Is this South American republio
that furnishes the greatest supply of fine emer
alds known to the world today.
Not that Colombia is the only country that has
emerald mines. Ecuador and Peru have contrib
uted their Bhare to the world's supply, and In
the former country the city of Esmeraldas (Span
ish for emeralds) takes its name from the pre
cious stones found in the vicinity. Among the
Azteo treasures of Mexico were found emeralds
as fine as those of the Peruvian Incas, and It is
reported that Cortez was offered 40,000 ducats for
one of the gems he gathered from the hoard of
in some areas of the United States limited
quantities of tlje precious stones are found, but
tho gems o'f greatest beauty and value are to
be had from the Muzo and Cosquez deposits near
Bogota, the capital of Colombia.

the heads of the talented woman until
her tormentors received the well-deserved
title, "souls of lackeys." The
colonel of a Prussian regiment sta
tioned In Melnlngen forbado his of
ficers to greet the wife of the duke
(now a baroness) when she passed
them. The Hohenzollerns Ignored her.
By a curious coincidence on the day
when his son publicly announced his
coming morganatic marriage the kai
ser for the first time sent a message
of friendly greeting to the wife of his
"cousin of Saxe-Melnlngen," who that
day, attained her seventy-fifth birth
day. But whllo the RasBowltzes never
have had tho privilege of "equal birth"
with royalty, they have held tho honor
of knighthood 'as far back as they can
be trnced. It Is to be noted that the
naBsowltzes wore knights in the days
when tho ancestors of tho Princess
Fugger was a master weaver In Augs
berg. Yet the Fuggors now have the
privilege of "ebonburtlgkolt!"
Tho countess captlvatod tho hearts
of all Germans who hnvo met her, aB
well an tho membors of the royal fam
ily, by her eparkllng wit and by
her excellent singing voice.

Tho counteBB best friend In her lovo affair has
been the Crown Princess Cocllle, whose brother
Is the grand duko of Meklcnburg, or which the
countess' father Is minister of state. Coming
from tho same place to Berlin, and with the same
vivacity, good looks and pleasuro In pretty clothes
and piquant society, they naturally formed an al
liance against the stiff and conventional sur
roundings. The day after the marriage of Prince Oscnr and
Countess Ina the royal bridegroom will confer a
settlement upon hlB wife. This Is the "morgon

The marriage ceremony differs from the usual
custom In that the brldo Joins her right hand to
the bridegroom's left hand (a token of their
unequal birth) and for this she cannot Inherit the
estates of her husband or receive hlB royal name.
Hence, the day after tho marriage ho bestowB
a new title upon her, according to tho arrange
ments of tho state, and a financial settlement.
TIiIb morganatic marrlago Is considered as
founding an entirely new family. Tho kaiser will
grant the family a new name and Prince Oscar
will be paid a lump sum Instead of his princely
Morganatic marriages have from time, to tlmo
been attacked an equivalent to concubinage
This Is n mistake, for the wholo system of mor
ganatic marriages has been built up by the
Protestant church to preBorve tho purity of the
marriage relation and nt tho same time preserve
tho sanctity of royalty.
