VitNNA, Nov. a.-tdiciul.)-In view of
the troubled state of affairs in the Balkans
nd the giave poaalblllty of an appeal to
amis on the part of Uervla, pictures of
this year'a maneuvers of the Austrlsn
army, which have Just been published, are
selling In thouaanda. Undoubtedly the most
popular are those depicting the Emperor

FramlsJostph, si though he may have re
linquished the reins of sctlve government
li 4he heir presumptive. Is nevertheless
at 111 a man to be reckoned with.
Halrr'a Day Basy One.
A well known diplomat who was almost
dally la conference with the Austrian
ruler, one said that Francis Joseph was
the hardest working ruler In tha world,
and Bismarck, who was no mean Judge of
work, heartily endorsed the remark when
it was repeated to him. Vnfortunatrly for
his health he does not take the cares and
worries of hia kingly duties easily, but wor
rits lncesssntl.v. He rises st 4 o'clock in
the morning, hours bvfute the majority of
his subjects are awake, and in the follow
ing two hours reads a st-lected portion of
his immense correspondence. At he sits
down to bis breakfast In his study alone,
and at ths same time reads all tha Import
ant local and foreign uewspapera whk-ii
have, been previously marked for him by
blf private secretary'- At 10 he gives sud
tencea. first to his own ministers, with
whom ha insists upon entering Into the
smallest detail of their respective depart
ments, and later to foreign diplomats. At
12 lunch Is ready and at S work la re
sumed. At 4 he frequently takes a rid on
horseback, accompanied by a slngla officer
of his suite, through the streets of Vienna.
H'.s is a well known figure, and the fact
that ha makes these ungarded appearances
in public, despite the racial animosities of
his subjects. Is evidence that Francis Jo
seph still possesses tha conspicuous per
sonal bravery that brought him fame at
Solferino. At 5 o'clock dinner is served, and
$ o'clock always finds the emperor In bed.
Beat Soldiers la Earape.
The emperor Is still every Inch a soldier
and he Is very fond of paying surprise
visits to garrisens and barracka. He la a
stem disciplinarian and doea not conceal
the fact that h believes ha has the finest
soldiers In the world, not even excepting
the Germans. In this he Is supported by
many txperts It Is not more than a week
since, apropos of the present crisis, ons
famous military authority expressed the
opinion in print that no better raw ma
terial existed in burope than some of the
races of which the Austrian army la coin
posed. Outwardly and to tha mere layman
there ia surely no comparison between the
Hungarians and tha Bosnians, with their
fire and daah and tha cold, phlegmatic
Germans aver whom Emperor Wlllism II
Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir pre
sumptive to the throne, has taken an ap
preciable Jump In public popularity In the
last six months. This is, of course, due
Co the progrees of events la which ha is
supposed to have had a directing hand.
And a strong- and heavy hand It has proved
to be. "After hint tha deluge" baa been
a well nigh universal wsy cf referring to
tiie Austrian emperor and the dual mon
archy for years past, but he is a rash
man whu would make that prophecy today.
In other words, the archduke has demon
strated " a quite unexpected amount of
strength and ability and Austra-Hunsary
is exultiug accordingly. 'Today Archduke
Francis Ferdinand is almost aa popular
as his agkd uncle. Whether or not It is
the fleeting popujirily of the man of the
hour or of a mure durable lasting brand
it is hard to say, but he has already given
-rcellent reason for supposing that if
there is any deluxe it will not be because
of any fault of his. ,
The archduke takes even mora Interest
than the emperor in the mllsliry affairs
of the country. In fact, while Francis
Joseph was more or less of a spectator at
the 'recent maneuvers becsuse of his ad
vanced age the archduke tooU a leading
part in the planning of the movemenU of
the troops. It Is believed in well Informed
quarters that the heir would undoubtedly
