dinner to thn foreign diplomats Is worth'noiue

type , so far as I Can discover , slneo thu fouh ' '
dation of the empire. It was given at tha
royal city castle at Potsdam. To It were la
vlted all the heads of foreign mission * or
their temttornry represcntatlyes. In this-

train , wlmcdalong at such a rutu that lt
usual forty-five minutes travel wus shortened . -
to twenty minutes. An array of court car-
riuges met thu train. Oncu inside the castW
there was a wait of a few minutes while -th
kniser talked with a few of these cmbussa *
dors best known to him.
At 7 o'clock the kaiser , walking along- .
ahead of all his guests , led the way to Uio
dinner table. In the mtirbla room was n long ,

und above this a crowned Imperial eagle ,

The dinner itself was exquisite und served
with the highest nit that is , so promptly
and so skillfully that theiro was no conscious
ness of how or by whom it was served.
Tlio kaiser looked remarkably well , talked -
with animation , and ute with his usual rather
impatient hnsto , seeming to euro little for
either eating or drinking , but taking evi
dent pleasure in the perfect service ,
The general atmosphere of good
taste , the most noticeablu point of
the dinner to an onlooker , was a chnngo
from thu rather barbarotis luxury of dinners
ut the former court , and the diners instead
of wearing the bored faces of forced attund-
unts at a state ceremony , looked rather an if
they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Ona
of the diplomats told mo ho Would like to

each about some topic conncctod with h !

If it shows un.vUiing , this dinner
promises not only u luxurious , briUhint court
Mich us was expected , but beyond thatna
amount of good tusto that-Is surprising la
the emperor , who Ls so thoroughly a soldier.
Perhaps , also , to Judge by thu smoothness
with which this ili'ht state ceremonial passed
nftt that the emperor has something of Ms
grandfather's ability to bclcct the right inaa
