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.

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 dlno In the saino way dally , while otlieru said that it was a ploasuiesucli as was never experienced before. About 8 o'clock thu kaiser rose , nnd all , followed him to form a circle In the neigh boring room. There his majesty apoko to each about some topic conncctod with h ! homo. To the Mexican minister , for instance , about the recent Hoods.
