SOMZ SHARP LINES DRAWN (Correspondence ot Tha Asaootatad Prea..)' Madrid, Spain, April 2. Now that Spain hai taken the center of tha ' itage aa the (oremoit neutral, follow ing the break of relationi between tha United State, and Germany, it ii find ing that the role of the chief neutral ! ii not altogether a happy one. I here is added honor and prestige as the intermediary between all the various capitals, but here at Madrid the repre sentative! of all these capitals are ranged in so many hostile camps, with their own champions and followers, their own press snd shades of news and gossip, their own policies, in rigues and wirepulling, that the gov. eminent has found it convenient and . necessary to draw a sharp line be tween these different groups so is to prevent animosities and embarrass ments which might seriously inter, fere with strict adherence to neu trality. the Spanish capita! is famous tot the elegance of its official receptions. with a strict adherence to precedent and etiauette. and with all the foreign representatives mingling together, Un til recently, the British ambassador was the dean of these foreign repre sentatives, and, by chance, the wife of the German ambassador was doy enne of the wives of ambassadors. This created something of I strain when the various croups assembled and greeted each other in the strict order of thtir rank. German, Dean of Crowd. But when a new British ambassador arrived recently, the German ambas sador succeeded as dean ot the for eign representatives, and his wife con tinued as dovenne. As sucn the mer 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 of different hours and days for, all the groups. ttven the national and religions fes tivals are undergoing change because of neutrality. The king's birthday celebration was given up this year. Usually it is attended by a grand re ception of all the foreign representa tives at the royal palace, with gala 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, wjjich are' usually observed with great ceremony in Spain, are now much re stricted, for the same reason of neu- t traiity . No Feet warning Thta rear. One of the most curious of these ceremonies is usually on Thursday of the last week ot Lent, when tne King washes the feet of twelve poor men ut the palace. It is called the Lava torio. it a symbol of humility, and is open to the public, who crowd the Silace to witness this unusual scene, ut this year the ceremony was omit ted, as it would bring together the two opposing elements. The need for this strict observance waa made plain by several incidents. uetore tne new rules came into force there waa a reception at which all the ambassadors were assembled. This brought together Prince X.. an ambas sador of one of the central powers and jjora x., tne ambassador ot an en tente power. There was a moment's hesitation, and then the entente am bassador, to relieve the strain, smil- ngly extended his hand, cut Prince X., instead of taking the hand, carried his own hand behind his back. Where- upon the entente ambassador, not to be embarrassed by the affront, in creased his smile into a hearty laush and remarked: Oh. I had ouite forgotten we were at war," Change Their Hourtt. '. There have been only two elements to keep apart up to the rupture of re lations between the United States and 'jermany, but this introduced a third element of countries which had Broken relations, but not gone to waf. l nis break ot relations kept the am bassadors apart as much as the ac tual existence of war. The need for separate audiences was made evident on the night word was received here that the United States had broken relations with Germany and given lount Bernstorn nis passports. Un that night the American and German ambassadors here had appointments U the same hour and place with the president of the council. There was a hurried rearrangement of hours wnen word came of the breach be tween America and Germany. r After that the new rules for separ ate aays ana nours tor tne tnree ele ments were scrupulously observed. But with all the nrecautiona Snsln i. finding that the important role of chief neutral, while having its advantages, .s attended with many difficulties. Sound of the Dropping Coin Causes the Deaf to Hear (Correspond.nea gf Th. Aaaoolat.d Praaa.) Rome, April 2. Because there have been in this war a number of genuine cases of men who have been struck deaf and dumb by gun shock it has become a favorite form of malinger ing by men who wish to avoid the risks of the firing line or particularly desire to be sent home. They act as though they could hear absolutely nothing. Neither a cannonade nor the voices of their mothers who some times are brought to see them can they apparently hear. under the circumstances a shrewd old army doctor has discovered that the sound of the dropping of a coin immediately behind them almost in variably makeathemturn. , Unidentified Aviator Bombards Swiss Town Berne, April 27.
