London ItoF.
If Prince Francis of Teck marries
Duchess Marie of Mecklenbnrg-Streltz
he will have a very pretty bride. Her
father is the only son of the Duchess
of Teck's sister, so she 1b Prince Fran
cis'e first cousin once removed! You
may, perhaps, remember that her moth
er, the Hereditary Grand Duchess of
, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, was voted the
prettiest royal lady in the jubilee
pageant of '87; and she still looks mar
velously young lo have a daughter aged
twenty. Prince Francis is twenty-eight.
He is a very handsome young sprig, but
inclined to be extravagant. It is a fam
ily failing with the Tecks to be out at
elbows. By the way, at the private sale
of the effects of the late Duchess of
Teck, the jewelry as was only right
passed into the hands of the Duchess of
York. That much-tried young person
is now looking a little brighter, having
got her husband afloat once more. He
has been so ailing and miserable of late
that everyone is thankful to see him
restored to his beloved navy; and it is
hoped that sea breezes and congenial
employment may hearten him up
Little Alexander of Battenberg is
another enthusiastic sailor. When the
authorities of the Britannia offered to
make some relaxations of the rules in his
faror. and his mother declined the in
dulgence, the young twelve-year-old ap
plauded lustily. "Why, I want to be
treated just like anybody elee!" cried he.
So the Coburgs are not coming to
town after all. This gives the last touch
of dullness to the very unexpectedly dis
appointing season. What with the
weather, the absence of all the young
princesses, the bad times and the decis
ion of the Americans that it would be
unpatriotic to entertain much during
war time, things are decidedly slow, so
that the debutantes and tradesmen are
grumbling right and left. The Marl
boroughs have come home; but I hear
they are going to spend most of their
time at Blenheim. One person at least
seems patisfied, however, that there is to
be plenty more gayety, since she has just
announced her arrival in town ''for the
season." This is Lady Mary Saurin
the Earl of Harrowby's aunt aged ninety-eight!
This cheerful individual
danoed at the Waterloo Ball. She mar
ried Admiral Saurin, who died in the
year of their golden wedding, and she
has been a widow twenty years! The
Duchess of Cleveland and Baroness
Burdett-Coutts still youthful at eighty
four are juveniles indeed beside her.
Another apparently confirmed bache
lor has been caught by feminine charms
at last. This is the Earl of Stradbroke,
whose engagement to Miss Helena
Keith-Frazer is just announced. The
Earl is thirty five, very smart and popu
lar. He has seen all his five sisters
married without evincing ahy desire to
emulate them. The bride elect is Lord
Dudley's cousin. Her mother is the
daughter of the late Mme. de Falke
(whose first husband waa a Ward); and
she is also related to all the handsome
young people of the clan Forbes. So it
will be a smart and aristocratic wed
ding. Through her father Miss Frazer
comes of a race of distinguished sol
diers. I hear that poor Mrs. Gladstone has
sunk back into her former "dotty" con
dition. She does not even remember
that her husband is dead, but usually
imagines that he is in the next room.
The Iateet subject for gossip is the en
gagement of Miss Fleetwood Wilson to
Prince Alexis Dolgourouki. (Please to
understand that this popular lady does
not belong to the Wilsons who have been
so much talked about lately. Her fath
er was a Northamptonshire landowner, a
very learned man.) All "dear old Fleet
wood's" friends were striken dumb with
amazement when they heard the news.
She is one of the "uost popular hostesses
in society and a great friend of the Prince
of Vales. In town, aa well aa in Scot
land, at Cannes and at St. Moriti, her
entertainments have been unique, and
no doubt the has had plenty of opportu
nities to marry during put years. How
ever, she haa always seemed quite con
tent to act aa chaperone to the girls,
several of whom having charming mem
ories of her sympathy and tact; and
being a great heiress, she could afford to
do as she liked giving her young friends a
thoroughly good time. The (Cornwallia
Wests generally made her house in Port
man square their headquarters before
Daisy married Prince Pleas. She also
rents Old Mar Caatle from the Duke of
Fife. I hear that she will not leave
England on her marriage, but will con
tinue her social beneficences. I hope
Prince Alexis will prove worthy of her.
He is the third son of the famous Prince
Dolgourouki, and he distinguished him
self in the Rusao-Turkkh war. He was
presented to the Prince of Wales at the
last levee. The Prince doesn't mind the
marriage, provided the bride does not
give up her nice little entertainments.
What a contrast he is to that favorite
of fortune, Lord Shaf tsbury! Not con
tent with being a beauty-man and a rav
ishing tenor, that most eligible of bach
elors has now succeeded to his mother's
large fortune. Everyone thought, when
this happened, be would ieave the army;
but he is far too keen a soldier, so he re
joined his regiment (the Tenth Hussars)
at Canterbury. Perhaps he ia not sorry
to escape the chase in London for the
present! But once his mourning is over
he will indeed be a marked man for
mammas and maidens!
On the 22d, the Princess of Wales, for
the first time in her life, opened a bazaar
for the Roman Catholics. The charity
was the Norwood Orphanage of the Sis
ters of Mercy. The fete was held at Im
perial Institute.

A city official, who supposes the e!
ode Is a close family secret, arranged
with hla wife to meet her at the ofles
last Friday night at 7 o'clock, says ths
New York Herald. They were then to
have dinner at a hotel, and attend ths
theater. He was prompt, but Bis wife
had not yet arrived, ss he patlenUy
waited on the sidewalk with his eyes
on the door that she might set coat
without his knowledge. He paced back
and forth, reading the bulletins, ob
serving the direction of the wind and
looking at the clock as it marked the
fasslng minutes; but he saw all whs
entered the building. Hs heard a loud
clanging ef gongs, as a fir saglns
dashed down 6th avenue, and tuned
his head for not more than live seconds
to look after it. His wife was only a
few minutes late, as sne hurried from
a Broadway car and rushed Into ths
efflce, during the five seconds his head
was turned. She had not seen him, and
was pleased to think that he would hs
the one to be blamed for being late, as
he sat down to wait his coming. Hs
continued to wait and pace, as ths
cloak ticked o the minutes. Eight
o'clock was near and he became. Terr.
impatient, as he realized that It meant
to either miss dinner or the fret act of
the play. When 8 o'clock was passed
he saw another act slip away. Tn. a
few minutes more he bad given Ov the
theater, and feared for the dinner. Ia
another ten minutes an of the plains
were changed, and he determined to
go home. She was also discouraged
and hurried to the street to take a
northbound cable car. They met, and
well; the theater was given up, vst
they bad a dinner and each, promlss)
to say nothing about it
