Edward VII.. whose full title was "king of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and or all the British domin ions beyond the seas, emperor of In dia," was the eldest son and the sec ond child of Queen Victoria and Al bert, the prince consort. He was born November 1. 1841, in Buckingham pal ace and was christened Albert Ed ward. At his birth he was created prince of Wales and by virtue of that dig nity he became also knight of the gar ter. As nelr apparent to the British throne be succeeded to the title of duke of Cornwall and Its emoluments, and as heir to the crown of Scotland he became great steward of Scotland, duke of Rothesay, earl of Carrlck, baron of Renfrew and lord of the Isles. Cn September 10. 1849, he was created earl of Dublin, this title being con ferred on him and bis heirs in per petuity. Among the other titles and commands held by Edward were duke of Saxony, colonel of the Tenih bus Bars, colonel-in-chief of the Rifle bri gade, field marshal of the British army and field marshal of the Ger man army. The prince received a most elabo rate, broad and carefully planned edu cation. At first he was under the charge of four private tutors, and sub sequently his education was directed by Baron Stockmar and Charles Kingslcy. In order to give him a taste of college life, he was sent for one session to the University of Ed inburgh, for one year to Oxford and for four terms to Cambridge. During these years he acquired a wide gen eral knowledge of the arts and sci ences and became quite proficient In modern languages. In 1860 the prince made a tour of the United States and Canada and the next year he joined the British army at Curragh camp, Ireland. In 1SC2 he set out on his travels again. this time visiting Jersualem and oth er places of biblical Interest His companion on the trip was Dean Stan Icy of Westminster. Edward's public life began In Feb ruary. 1S63. when, as heir to the throne, he took his 6eat in the bouse of lords. On March 10 of the same year be married Princess Alexandra Caroline Mary Charlotte Louise Julia, the eldest daughter of King Christian IX. of Denmark. Her beauty, grace and charming manners at once gave her a popularity In Great Britain that has continued unlessencd throughout her life as princess and queen. In 1S75-7C the prince made an extended tour tnrough the Indian empire and was received everywhere with lavish and magnificent hospitality, the native rulers seeking to outdo one another In the gorgeousness of the entertain ments provided for the emperor On the death of Queen Victoria. January 22. 1901. Edward succeeded to the throne. The coronation was set for June 26. 1902. and all preparations for the magnificent event bad been Absolute Rest. "Clyde Fitch was an indefatigable worker." said an actor who has played In many of the Fitch comedies. "When he had a play on the stocks he would labor over It day and night, often scarcely pausing for his meals, and getting very little sleep. Conse quently his health suffered. He would work until on the verge or a nervous breakdown, and then bis phy sician would step in and force him to knock off. "During one of these periods of en forced idleness he was lounging in the Players club one day when Harry B. Smith, the prolific comic opera libret tist, strolled in. "What are you doing now? asked Smith. "'I'm In ray doctor's nanus.' replied Fitch. 'He tells me I'm In a bad way. and has absolutely forbidden me to uu any brain work.' 'That's tough." said Smith. 'How do you manage to put in the time?' 'Oh. I'm writing the libretto of a musical comedy. replied Fitcb with oue of his cynical smiles." completed when disquieting rumors of the king's 111 health, which had been current for several days, were con firmed by the postponement of the ceremony. It was announced that the king was suffering from perityphlitis, and on June 24 he underwent an o; eration. After some weeks of the greatest anxiety, he recovered, and the coronation took plar August 9. During the long years of his prince hood Edward's public duties consisted solely In the office of representing the royal family at all manner of public J events, and he performed these du ties welL But the deadly monotony of such a life was too much for the vigorous man. and he found relaxa tion In amusements that frequently gave rise to scandals and that gave the world a wrong impression of his real character. He was esneclallv fond of the theater and among his ooon companions tor years were ac tresses and actors. Also he devel oped a great liking for Paris and often visited that gay capital Incognito. The Riviera and Biarritz likewise were familiar with the face of the prince of Wales. But all this, as has been -aId. was only bis relaxation, and after coming to the throne bis conduct always was so circumspect that not the most cap tious critic could find any fault with it. As a diplomat Edward was unex- . ... . , JSSSLS: ?LP I His Influence was always thrown to the side of International peace where compatible with national honor, and his advice and example had a steady ing effect on all Europe. He looked with amused tolerance on the va garies and extravagances of his neph ew, the emperor of Germany, but oc casionally that ruler exasperated him to such an extent that he could not refrain from giving him soma stern advice. Such admonition was not re ceived by William in a submissive spirit, and once In a while there were sensational rumors that the peaceful relations between the two countries were about to be ruptured. The development of the king's char acter In his Inter years was espe cially gratifying to the nation In ad dition to the love of his people, which r he had always had. he gained their admiration and respect. They had the utmost confidence in his good judg- ment. as was amply exemp'ified dur ing the late crisis over the budget, i and they were always sure he would do the right thing at the right time. To Edward and Alexandra were born six children. The first Prince Albert, duke of Clarence, died in 1832. aged twenty-eight years. The second. George Frederick Ernest Albert, born on June 3. 1S65. succeeds to the throne. The other children are: Princess Louisa Victoria, married to the duke of Fife; Princess Victoria Alexandra: Princess Maude Charlotte, married to Prince Charles of Den mark, and Prince Alexander Jonn. who died the day after his birth in 1S71. They All Serve. George C. Boldt. the well-known bo tel nian. was talking in Philadelphia about the hotels of Switzerland "They are good." said Mr. BoldL "At the price they are remarkably good. The Swiss are a nation of hotel keep ers. "The Alps, you know, draw all the world to Switzerland, and the Switzer who want to become a millionaire goes into the hotel business as an American would go into steel or sugar. He begins at the bottom; be is a v.aiter. "It is said that once In Berne, at a historic public meeting, all tut lead ing men ot Switzerland were gathered I together. A vote had been taktn. and the intense silence preceding the epoch-making verdict ot the tellers a wag shouted. 'Waiter! "Instantly the whole assembly rose as one man and answered. 'Yea. sir.'
