their own champions and followers,
their own press snd shades of news
and gossip, their own policies, in

was the dean of these foreign repre

This created something of I strain

But when a new British ambassador
arrived recently, the German ambas

man group was distinctly at the front,
not only in precedence, but in virtu
ally directing all the intercourse of
grand affairs. Evenjn the ordinary
official meetings with the cabinet
ministers, representatives of the pro-
hostile groups were brought together
in such a way that separate audience
rooms had to be hastily found in
order to avoid a clash, but all this is
now overcome bv the establishment

celebration was given up this year.
Usually it is attended by a grand re

performances and popular demonstra
tions and bull fights. But all this was
omitted this year as it was clear all
the foreign representatives could not
be brought together for one common
rejoicing. The lenten festivals also,

ceremony in Spain, are now much re

One of the most curious of these
ceremonies is usually on Thursday of
the last week ot Lent, when tne King

open to the public, who crowd the

The need for this strict observance

there waa a reception at which all the

brought together Prince X.. an ambas

hesitation, and then the entente am
bassador, to relieve the strain, smil-

his own hand behind his back. Where-

be embarrassed by the affront, in
