family la spending tho holidays in the

are to be numerous festivities at 17 Ar

upon finding Mrs. Selfrldge among the

LONDON, Jan. . (Special.)-England is
Just recovering from one of the greatest
scares of recent years. Although every
effort has been made to conceal the real
facts from the general public. It has be
come known that King Edward Is slowly
recovering from an extremely serious
breakdown. His recent 'indisposition" was
officially referred to as a "cold," but the
press, which was in possession of the real
facts but did not dare print them, gave
ample indication of the real seriousness of
the king's illness by devoting columns of
space to the subject. To the unlntlated
such a display of alarm over a mere cough
appeared ridiculous, but In the peculiar
conditions which aurround and hamper
newspaper work In this country it was the
only method of conveying news that could
not be stated In plain terms.
Steady Weakening? of System.
The medlral advisers of King Edward
have for some time past spent many sleep
less night over his state of health. There
has been a gradual but steady weakening
of the system, and It is the generally ac.
ccpted opinion that he would not be able
to shake off any of the more serious dis
eases to which kingly flesh. In common

nesaes. When hi recent Illness set In Sir
Thomss Barlow was hurriedly called In
and, as an evidence of the seriousness of
the case. Sir Francis Laktng was Imme
diately afterwards summoned In consulta
tion. After a thorough examination an
immediate change of climate was impera
tively insisted upon by the two famous
doctors. Hurried orders were sent out,
telegraphic messages were dispatched over
the greater part of England and the king
was bundled off to Brighton. The long
string of social engagements which, as
usual, were down on the king's books were
cancelled with regrets.
Danger Temporarily Over.
Under the finest medical care in the
world and tha fine bracing air of Brighton,
the Atlantlo City of England, the danger
of the king's health temporarily passed.
8o punctilious is his majesty In the mat
ter of his social engagements, that he In
sisted upon resuming them as soon as pos
sible. This resulted In a relapse In his Ill
ness. Ho had arranged to spend a short
time at the country aeat of Lord Burton
and, aa he had several times been hindered
from paying expected visits to the brewery
peer, he Insisted upon . coming up from
Brighton and making all arrangements for
keeping his latest promise. But the set
back to his cure became so alarming that
eventually, at the eleventh hour, the royal
visit was called off and the king waa again
bundled off to Brighton.
One of the most conclusive evidences of
the king's Impaired health is the fact that
some of his official duties have been lifted
from his shoulders and deposited on those
of the prince of Wales. Aside from his
constant round of social duties, the king is
not a busy man, despite all the nonsense
which tray have been written In the Eng
lish press. Yet It was felt that tha dally
round of routine work was a strain on his
majesty and. so far as haa been possible
that work has been taken over by the
Paper Get Private Tip.
As a inatier of fact, although the Eng
lish newspapers print these garbled re
ports. It Is never through any ignorance or
misconception of the real fact. Every big
newspaper in this country has a confiden
tial advirer in the circle of "high and
mlghliee" who dance attendance i.pon the
king and the loyal family. These "In
formers" include some of the most re
spected and Influential noblemen In the
land. The majority of them are "down and
out" financially and adopt thla meana of
I adding to their slender incomes. The
wrller knows of a particularly Interesting
case. A well known nobleman draws
$10,000 a year from one of the biggest news
paper owners In England for dropping in
two or three times a week and talking
matters over with the editors of thla pro
prietor paper. The implicated nobleman
la one of tiie closest personal friends of
the king. Indeed, It is common knowledge
that he lost a large fortune In his younger
days at games of cards In which the king
held a by no meana unfortunate hand.

the widespread Interest which is being
taken In the exhibition, asd manufacturers

The governor of California with a view
to securing an adequate representation of
