ROYAL SEA LECS TESTED North Atlantlo Trial in Vain to Send Prinoe Henry to Bed. NEVER A MEAL THE SAIIOF, MIMES Deaaaerntla Manners aa Board Bbla Kers) Kveryaae Geaa Kataraa Dart a Raafbeat at Vayaajes. NEW TORK, Feb. It. -.The north At lantio served to tha big Kron Print WU helm five daya of weather that tested Prince Henry'a tea legt. But the prince thowed bis sailorly qualities and never misted a meal. Each afternoon and even ing found him In the amoklng room and In spite of wind and wavea and tpray hi spent hours on the bridge. The voyage waa without apecial Incident. Prince Henry waa a most democrstle passenger and the big company of his fellow voyagers united In declaring btm an amiable, charming and unassuming gentleman. Kron Print WUhelm tailed from Bremer bavea on Saturday. Sunday afternoon It touched at Southhampton. From there U ran to Cherbourg and by f o'clock Sunday night put to sea. The thlp waa now beaded for New Tork. Dinner waa over and the passengers who came aboard at Southampton and Cher bourg were all on deck endeavoring to get a look at Prince Henry. Hia royal high ness did not keep them waiting long, for he walked along the deck alone, entered the smoking room and took a seat at a table where several of the royal party were already aeated. Here he drank his coffee and smoked cigarettes for awhile and then filled a pipe. He joked and laughed With his party continually and waa the aoul of good nature. Seems Oblivions to Artlsta. Two American artlsta and a German artist sketched him . aa he sat for two hours In the smoking room, but be seemed oblivious of their penciling. The pas sengers crowded around the tables near tha one occupied by tbe prince; and those of the women who had not actually ven tured Into tbe smoking room and taken aeata peered through the windows from the deck. The attention he attracted, how ever, did not aeem to annoy hia royal high ness In the least. Probably never before waa the amoklng room of a liner ao frequented by women passengers aa waa that of Kron Print WUhelm all the way over. Whenever It was sought by Prince Henry he was aurs to find among Its occupants many ot the fair aex and he aeemed to take their scrutiny In a good natured way. Some of them were beard to order the aama kind of beer the prince was drinking and the stewards brought It to them exactly the same aa was being aerved at tbe prlnce'a table. But the prince, German-like, la a slow drlnksr, and tha women discovered that ha aat at the table for tome little time before a single glass waa exhausted. Heavy Weather Rncoantered. This describes the situation on Sunday and Monday night; but oa Tuesday the treat hlp began to encounter heavy weather and the battle between tbe ship and aea made many of tha passengers seek their staterooma. This thinned out the smoking room crowd considerably, but the prince appeared every day after luncheon and every bight after dinner, alwaya alt ting at tba aame table. The heavy aeas did not affect him In tha least, for he Is an excellent sailor. While he did not miss a meal or omit one of his twlce-a-day visile to the smoking room during the entire voyage, some of the royal party did fall to appear at their meals or In the smoking room. Even Dr. Reich, the staff surgeon ot the prince, bad a aevere attack of seasick ness. . Thlg Indicates the rough weather Kron Print passed through almost the entire voyage. But it waa tba strong head winds and tha fact the propeller were out of water every few minutes that ao greatly retarded ita speed. His royal highness and party occupied a table In a far corner or sort of wing of the main dining saloon. A partition ran half way across, hiding a part of the royal table from a portion of the main dining room. But the prince re quested that a greater part of tbe parti tion be taken down and the wide open ing thus made waa transformed Into an arch and decorated. The change made the prlnce'a corner seem more like a part of the main dining saloon and the pea- asngera facing bla corner at meala could aea him and hit party plainly. Deallaea ta Inconvenience Others. Captain Rlchter had offered the prince the captain's large table In the center of the grand salon, but bit royal highness did not cara to eauae tha regular patrons of tbe liner who had been aaslgned to those seats any Inconvenience and de clined the change. Every morning after breakfast tbe prince took bla constitutional around the deck two or three times among the passenger. In tact, he waa throughout the voyage thoroughly democratic. An artist for an Illustrated weekly bad been eent by hit paper to accompany the prince. Ha wat passing whsre tha prince aat In the smok ing room on Tuesday night, when his royal highness hailed him, took hia band end In vited him to alt at the table with the royal party, where ho chatted for nearly an hour. Another Incident which showed hia good fellowship also baa an artist, thla time an American, aa Ita beneficiary. The prince heard that the American bad made a aketch portrait of himself which had attracted a good deal ot attention among the passen gers. Hs sent for the artist and after com plimenting tin work offered to gtve him a sitting. The artist became so embarrassed when he began work that he waa unabje te accomplish anything. Then the prlncs re marked that "It he did not feel In the humor for It they would try again another day." Dcaaacratla Ways rieaaa All. His consideration of others and bis dem ocratic ways gained for the prince the Hk- tn of every one of bla fellow passengers. The Amerlcsa passengers particularly were characteristically enthusisstio ta their praise. Captain Rlchter. who waa on hie first voyage aa commander of Kron Prtns Wll helm, bad hoped te make a record trip, but the weather waa agalntt htm. He did not leave the bridge except at short Inter vale during the entire voyage. Prince Henry apent much of hia time each day on tbe bridge. When tbe captain expressed his disappointment because he could not reach New York early on Saturday the prince took occasion to compliment him on tbe masterful way In which he had han dled bla ship and the speed he had made under auch adverse conditions. Oa Tuesday the prince went on a tour of Inspection of the ship with tha captain and the ahlp'a surgeon. He visited the atetrags tod aecond-class passengers and examined tbe'r Quarters. On Wednesday Kron Print spoke the liner Lucanla, and the captain, crew and passengers of that abip aent their eompli neats to the prince in a message by wire lees telegraphy. Tbe priace answered as follows: Heartiest thanks to captain, crew snd passengers ot Lucanta aud good passage. . . litis it I ur rntoaiA. Two instruments of the Marconi aystem were fitted up especially for the we of the prince, wbose messages had precedence ever all others. One of ths most eujoyable features of the voysge was the excellent music. In addi tion to the regular band belonging to the ship the music corps of tbe Second Matro sen Vlfffen, containing thirty-eight pieces, waa on board. This ta one of the great military bands of Germany snd came on Kron Print to Join Hohenxollern. Likes "Yankee Doodle" ana l)ile." On Thursday night at dinner the band ot tbe kaiser's yacht furnlshsd the music, In termitting Oermsn and American airs. "Yankee Doodle" and "Dixie" were played, rousing great enthusiasm. The roya! party cheered heartily, ae did all the German passengers. At the request of Prince Henry, "Yankee Doodle" was rendered again and It waa no sooner finished tban a request came from the asms aoures for a repetition of "Dixie." One American wondered If the prince knew the meaning and history of the two. "Indeed he does," aald several American voices. Friday night tbe prince left his own table In tbe amoklng room early and Joined that occupied by George A. Armour and Allison V. Armour of Chlcsgo. Robert Bon ner and Archie Harman ot New York and Spencer Eddy of the United States legstlon at Constantinople. Allison Armour bad been Introduced to the prince as a yachting man and this brought ths whole party to gether on common ground. Prince Henry sat conversing with this party ot Amer ican for two hours. He remarked that he had always desired to hear tome genuine American plantation aonga and hoped be would have the opportunity before be re turned to Germany. At noon on Friday tbe prince Invited Sir Charles Cust, a British naval officer, who la on hia flrat visit to tbe United States, to Join him in tbe smoking room. Satur day morning be Invited Mr. Armour and party, with whom he had spent the even ing before, to take a look through tbe ship and he explained every part ot the machinery to them aa an expert. Drlaka to Gears Washington. Not one of tbe party had aald a word about It being Washlngton'a birthday. After the tour of Inspection the princs In vited them to his room, where he opened champagne. - ' "Now, gentlemen ot America," said he "let us drink to George Washington." The storm that atayed with Kron Print all the way acrosa the Atlantic, on Satur day morning changed the pitching motion ot the thlp to a terrible roll. Everything In the ship that waa loose tumbled about and It was difficult and dangerous for tbe passengers to move. At tbe concert after the captain's dinner on Saturday night most of the amusement was afforded-by aeveral member of the band falling over while they were playing. The piano bad to be made more secure with ropes and two men ateadied It. The passengers aat holding themselves securely in tbe sta tionary chairs. Aatoarraphs Ara Aaetloned. - The prince put hi autograph on - ten of the concert programa to be. auctioned off for tbe benefit ot the sailors. Ths lowest priced one brought 136 and the high, eat 84. Six hundred and twenty-five dol lars was the sum raiaed from the eale, but the auctioneer's energies were all ex hausted la holding fast rather than in tba uae ot hi voice. . The rlnce aat through the concert and applauded with enthusiasm. Saturday the prince aent word to the five American nawspaper men on board that he would aee them In - the afternoon. "Baron Secktfn dorff, the prince' chief of staff, made the presentation and the. prince shook hands heartily with each ot them. Among other thlnga he discussed with the newspaper representatlvea wireless telegraphy and It development and application in the future. At that time the ship was nearlng Nan tucket andwhen communication with that atatlon was established the prince aent tbe following telegram: To President Rooaevelt, Washington: Hope state of health Master Roosevelt favorably progressing. Wish speedy recov ery. Permit me to congratulate you and American nation on commemoration of Washington's birthday.

EXPLAINS PRINCE'S VISIT Captain Von Mueller Telia of Feeling, that Prompt tbe Kaiser. SENDS 1R0THER TO CEMENT ESTEEM Hemy II a WiV nf Wlnnlnar Ae ml ration, and Emperor Wants tha Kindliest at Feelings Betweea tha Nations. NEW YORK, Feb. 2S. Prior to bis de parture from Germany It waa officially an nounced that Prince Henry would not be Interviewed and today be adhered strictly to thla determination. Whatever the prinoe baa to aay for publication will be given out by a member ot bit staff. Captain von Mueller, aide-de-camp to tbe German emperor, wbo la used to spsak not only for Prince Henry, but in a measure to voice the emperor'a own views, said today to an Associated Press representa tive, in explanation of tbe prlnce'a vtalt: "When the president, upon the Inquiry of the German emperor, whether Miss Roosevelt would perform the ceremony ot christening bis Amerlcan-bullt yacht, had given hi consent In a most gracious man ner, hia majesty resolved to ahow hi re gard for the president by having himself represented by a prince of his house on the occasion of ths launching. 'In contemplating thla courtesy the em peror remembered the pleasant relations between Prince Henry and Admiral Dewey and Rear Admiral Evans, and also recalled that hia brother, on his return from China, had expressed' a strong wish to visit the United States.. This desire, however, could not be gratified at that time. Aceaatomed to Win Esteem. "Moreover, tha emperor was Influenced by ths fact that Prince Henry, whenever he waa abroad, bad always won the admira tion and esteem of those with whom he waa brought In contact and had always succeeded In bringing a tone of kindness, bssed on mutual etteeem, In the Interna tional relatione. 'Thla, I think, will indicate the feeling that actuated the emperor In the choice of his brother aa hia representative on this pleasant oocaslon. , "The prince Is grateful that tha emperor selected him for this mission. He is de lighted to make the acquaintance of the great American nation at last, and enjoy tbe honor of meeting the excellent man at the head of It. It had been only the stern command of duty which prevented" him from visiting the new world after hit return from East Alia." - New Version of Dewey Incldeat, When Captain von Mueller' attention was called to the various reports regarding the friction which . It wat alleged had arisen between Prince Henry and Admiral Dewey at a dinner gtvaa by the former in Hong Kong, he laughingly replied: "Oh, well, a good many versions of that incident, and all of them wrong, have been printed. I happened to be at that time the personal aide-de-camp to the prince. The truth ot the matter la this, And I speak authoritatively: "In the harbor of Hong Kong the prince had tendered a dinner to the commanders of the vessels ot vsrlous natlona at that time in the ' port On that occasion the prince drank to tbe health of the eoverlgnt and chiefs of ths' nation, the flags of which were represented by guest. In ths ordsr of hit toast his first, next to that to tbe German- . emperor, . - waa to Great Britain, and th second te Russia, while the United' States was the laat. The rea son Great Britain, was named in the first place was because the dinner happened in a harbor1 of 'British territory, the acting governor of which waa one ot the guests. A woek or so afterward the prince waa in formed by' the German consul, Hsrr Yon Loper, who Is now -In Valparaiso, that the representative of the United States, namely Admiral Dewey,- was pained because the prince had not put the United States at tha bead of hit toastt, contrary to tbe In ternational usage which demands the order ot the toast on such occasion. Thia usage is that the toast shall be given in the order of seniority of commission of the officers present. - Dewey was. In fact, In that respect the senior among the guest. Dewey Accepts Apoloay, "The "prince did not hesitate to seek an open, frank talk on the question of etiquette with bis American comrade, whom he highly esteemed1. ' When visiting tbe flag ship Olympla' he frankly told Dewey that be had convinced himself that he wat jrrong, and that Dewey waa right. And Dewey' reply was this: 'Well, air, X thank you for your apology. I may aay that 1 liked you before this, but after what you have told me Juat now, I think I like you better, and this le eaying a great deal.' It la readily to be seen that this settlement ot a question of etiquette could only eerve to strengthen the friendly relatione be tween them, and that Prince Henry It keeping the worda of hia American friend in grateful remembrance. "Prince Henry," continued Captain von Mueller; "Is a sailor with atl hU heart and soul.' He takes prldo In maneuvering hia ship and hi aquadron. Everything be longing to engineering baa his especial Interest- He is always thoroughly ac quainted with tbe engines in the ships un der his command and at the aame time alwaya glvea bis attention to the personal welfare of tha men In the englae rooms, whose work b.e appreciates. "As a sportsman he- 1 versatile. Like all tha prince ot the royal houae, he ta a devoted hunter, end hs loves ths sailing sport, having owned aeveral yachts, hit last en being the cruising yacht L'Esper ance, bought In England, which he called himself from Southampton to Kiel. He Is a fine horseman, aa ha haa often had Occa- aioa to show by participating In polo game, and he Is a bicyclist and k golf player, too."' Prlne a a Sea Conniattr. Of Priace Henry as a sailor and sea com mander, Captain voa Mueller said- "The prince entered the' naval service In 187T, like any other cadbu Hia first long trip being one around the, world, he made from . 1871 to 1888, on -board the frigate Prlnea Adalbert. Hia first trip in tbe cspaclty ot a watch officer on board of the corvette Olga la the yeara of us! to 1884 brought him to the West Indies snd South America. In the aummer ef 1887, when be wae 25 year of age, be acted for tbe first time s a commanded and waa made the chief of a torpedo division with which he eventually aallad to Eng land en ths oocaslon of tbe Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Later he was plaoed In command consecutively, of the royal yacht Hohen sollern, the cruiser Irene, so chrtstensd after bla wife, the coaat armored ehlp Beowulf, and tha- battleships Sachssa and Woerth. When commander of the last named ship la the fall of 1I9 he wat pro moted to the rank of real admiral, being at that time only IS year ot age. His com rades looked upon hia rapid promotion without eavy because they knew him worthy of It. "In 18 tor the first time he hoisted his flag aa chief of ths second division of tba home squadron, and In 1897 bla Imperial brother, abowlng thereby bla great con fidence In him, ordered blm to lead rein foroementa to tbs cruising squadron In Chinas watsrs. which was. owing to the political eamplieatlooa at that time, rather exposed, and te take the oomuiaad of the newly formed eecond division of the cruis ing squadron. "When ths prince started for the Orient, warlike entanglements with China were geflerally expected. While, however, events took a different course, the prince fulfilled an important political mission for his coun try by elevating the standing of tbe Ger man empire la the east by tightening. In an excellent way, the tiee between the Germans residing In tne esst Aslatle places and tbe Fatherland. To express his thanks for these achievements of hit brother, the emperor made htm, in the aprlng of 1899, chief of the cruising squadron, and pro moted blm, six months later, to the rank of a vice admiral. In the beginning of tbe year 1900 Prince Henry returned home, after an absence of over two years. "After his teturn from China tbe prince waa entitled to a longer furlough, but, through the unexpected retirement of a senior admiral, he waa obliged, at early at the tall of 1900, to take an active com mand at chief of the First squadron. This Is the heart of the German navy and the war high school, a tecond admiral serving snder the chief. The aquadron consists of the battleships Kalaer Frederlch III, which la the prince' flagship; Kaiser Wllhelm III, Kaiser Wllhelm der Orosse, Kaiser Bar- ba rests, Kaiser Karl Grosae, Brsndenburg and Welssenburg, the big cruiser Victoria Louise and the email cruisers Amaton, Niobe and Hela. Aa chief of this squadron Prince Henry, after the fall manuerer, was promoted to the rank of a full admiral. rnostentatlotfa Home Mfe. "Of Prince Henry'e home life 1 may tell you that It la unostentatious. His res idence Is the royal castle In Kiel. During the summer, if duty does not call him to sea, he lives at his country seat, Hemmel- mark, and that In a atyle similar to and easier than many a noble country equire. When in Berlin, where he la attending oc casionally to the court festivltlee, he makes his abode In a wing of the royal achloss. Beside Hemmelmark he owns several Country properties In the province of Bran denburg and Posen." Prince Henry Is rather tall and ot slen der ttature, looking In hia general appear ance much like his father, tbe late Em peror Frederick.

Vi VCVrartthe really that aawe Headache kills, not necessarily suddenly, but SURELY. It preyt upon the intellectual powers more than we realize. It consumes the vitality faster than nature can replenish it, and we cannot tell just what moment temporary or complete aberration of the mind will result. Headache and pain should be promptly re movedbut properly. Many pain cures are more harmful than the pain. Beware. If you would be safe, take M?r.v Pain Pills. "At a result of neuralgia I lost the sight of my right eye, and the pain I have Buffered is incomprehensible, be ing obliged to take opiates almost con tinually. A friend gave me one of Dr. Miles' Pain Pills and it promptly re lieved me. I then purchased a box and now my trouble is gone. They hsv also cured my daughter of nervous headache, and I heartily recommend them to others." W. J. CoRLEY. Bre mond, Texas. Sold by Druggist. 85 Doses, 25c. Dr. Mile Medloal Co., Elkhart, nd. DR.
