PARIS, Feb. 15. (New York World Cable
gram Special Telegram.) Among the many
estates offered hlra. King Edward has
finally fixed hla choice on the Chateau
de Thorenc, at Cannes, for bis residence
during his stay on the Riviera in March.
It belongs to Lord Rendel and Is considered
the most beautiful demesne on all the
sure coast, leaving In the shade even the
great estates of the grand dukes of Russia.
Lord Rendel Is the head of the board of
management of the famous Armstrong firm
and has a fortune estimated at over $00,
000,000. From 1882 to 1683 be was civil lord
of the admiralty. While prince of Wales
King Edward was several times a guest
at Thorenc. A few years ago It was
rumored In English circles at Cannes that
be had offered to buy the place, but that
Lord Rendel refused to take money and
Insisted on making a present of It and the
then prince had given up the idea..
The 125-acre park surrounding the castle
Is entirely hemmed tn by stone walls clad
In Ivy and honeysuckle. The avenues and
' lanes aggregate twelve miles. When In
England Lord Rendel lives In another
superb country place, Hotchlands, at Qull
ford. He spends five or six months each
year at Cannes and has another One resi
dence at Postllppo, near Naples.
Faatldloas About Her Gardes.
Lady Rendel has long been renowned for
ber exacting fastidiousness aa regards the
keeping of her gardens. At Thorenc sbe
lias twenty men ooiog nothing but looking
after them, besides a head gardener, two
foremen and a squad of experts for the
greenhouses. The avenues alone provide
work for several bands every minute of
the day. Not a fallen leaf, burned match
or footprint Is allowed to remain on the
sand. As the park lies on a hillside, the
aged Lady Rendel never strolls through It
except In a tiny chair drawn by two white
donkeys and two men with rakes follow
at a distance to Immediately efface the
traces of the wheela.
What has attracted the king to the
Chateau .de Thorene more than anything
, else-Is the -woedeaful Jrollectlon of axotie
- plants and flowers. In the grounds the
. flower beds are never permitted to contain
any but planta In full bloom. As soon as
those are on the point of fading the whole
bed la spaded up during the night and re
set with flowers about to open, which have
been kept In reserve In remote fields or in
special forcing houses. From many lofty
points the promenader discovers enthrall
lng views of land and sea.
Lord Rendel's daughtar, Maud, married
Herbert Gladstone and Tborence castle
possesses the room which the great Glad
stone himself used to occupy there for a
month almost every winter.
In a particularly picturesque nook facing
the south and the sea there Is a clump
of olive trees set out by the prince of
Wales with his own hands more than fit
teen years ago. They are doubtless the
enly trees be ever planted and he shows
an Interest In their welfare and growth
very time he returns.

to go to Genoa and make a general Inspec
tion of the school there. While it is only
conjecture. It is believed here that Agent
McComas has verified the charges sgslnst
Haygood and will probably recommend his
dismissal from the service.
Haygood is regarded as one of the best
clerk In the service by those In authority

fallings of bis chief clerk, but the special

office here, has made no charges sgalnst
Agent Mathewson, as assorted by soma of
the papers near the reservation, but only
