IN AND OOT OF CHURCH ARGOIENYS ADVANCED FROH THE FOLPIT AND THB0D8H THE PRESS. St. Patrick Claimed to Have Been Part Presbyterian—Universalism in Boston-Denominational Schools— “Forgiveness and Love.** Tho Christian Leader (Univ) says: “Joseph Cook lately said some disparaging things of Universalism and some filings more disparaging of Unitarianism. He set his heavy foot down on the latter with peculiar energy and satisfaction, remarking, ‘Unitarianism in Boston has been a local giant. After one hundred years of unparalleled opportunity it is a local cripple. Much more was said by the Monday lecturer in the same vein. His purpose, as openly declared, was to so eznibit the ‘unevangelical sects’ to the Orient, whence they are at length sending missionaries, as to let it be known that these phases of Christianity have already been tried here in the Occident and found wanting. “In all this Mr. Cook was not handsome. His motives are not above suspicion. What he did was ‘strategic,’ but it was not high-minded. Tt savors of politics. He means to foreclose our opportunity in ‘the Orient,’ and make his evil prediction fulfill itself. A larger and finer type of man would have recognized with cordial approval the presence of the missionary spirit in-the ‘unevangelical sects,’ and if he could not predict great results from their efforts would have given them at least a few graina of credit. Unlike his Hebrew namesake, this .Joseph knows not how to return good for evil.” The Central West (Pres ) says: “Our Roman Catholic friedds are considerably stirred up over the claim made by Dr. Harsha in a recent sermon that Bt. Patrick was 'as near a Presbyterian as anything else.’ If they will read history dispassionately they will find that Dr. Harsha’s claim can be triumphantly maintained Nearly all the dogmas which to day distinguish the Papal Church from the Presbyterian have been promulgated since Bt. Patrick’s times. Tho worship of the Virgin Mary, of the saintp, the infallibility of the Pope of Rome, transeubatantiation, and the rest, wore evidently unknown to Bt. Patrick. The staple of preaching was just that heard to day from Presbyterian and other Protestant pulpits. There is not a word about purgatory or extreme unction or auricular confession, or any other dogma now deemed by the Papal Church so essential to salvation. Indeed, the good saint’s teachings sound very much like an extract from the Presbyterian Confession of Faith.” The Rev Augustine F. Hewit says, in the Catholic World: “I have been curious to discover what it is in the argument for Catholic aud denominational schools derived from the rights of parents as opposed to the interference of the state, which has touched to the quick the sensitive nerve in certain distinguish otUadvoc a tee of what”is called an un-FHCtarian system of education. Why are those who use this argument accused of insincerity, and of substituting a plausible but fallacious issue for the true one, and by special pleading striving to gain a judgment in favor of a claim which is a covert for the mal but hidden cause for which open plea is withheld? Why is the discussion turned off ou the Vatican Coyncil, the Jesuits, foreign in lienee, the designs of the court of Rome on American liberty, and papal infallibly? It would seem that the question of the religious and Christian element in education is a plain one, to be discussed on general principles, some of which are common to all Monotheists, others to all believers in revelation contained in those books of the Bible which they recognize as belonging to the authentic canon, and the rest to all who acknowledge the Christian religion. As to the practical question of the way in which religious education is to be carried on, it is admitted by all to bean American principle that perfect freedom must be guaranteed to societies and individuals, so long as that liberty is not abused to the detriment of rights which the state is bound to safeguard. Moreover, all who have distinct and specific convictions respecting the doctrinal and ethical truths and rules which constitute the substance and integrity of the Christian religion, must regard it as of vital importance that children should be educated and instructed in the same by competent and trustworthy persons. Since Catholics are equal to non-Catholics of all denomina tions in all respects b afore the law it would seem that the education of their children and young peoplo in schools where they are instructed in the principles and doctrines of their religion, ought to be regarded as strictly in accordance with the spirit and letter of our laws, just as much as the celebration of our rites of worship, the preaching of sermons, and the publication of books The same must be said, of course, of Jewish. Episcopalian, Presbyterian, and Methodist schools.” FORGIVENESS AND LOYE tention so unceremoniously. A bad reputation is harder to get rid of by a woman than by a man. All a man needs to do is to go into respectable society and reform a little and he Is considered a “good citizen.” But let no worse woman try that and see how it goes. This woman had met the Savior elsewhere than this time. She had heard Jesus preach somewhere and been converted from the sole of her feet to the crown of her head. She had an unpolished pardon in her heart. She was now a “soul in its earliest love.” but her old reputation still clung to her. The pharisee did not know that she was changed nor would he take the risk to own it had he known it. He had always been a very proper person and thought likely that he was among the “whole who needed no physician.” This woman did not come now to the Savior for pardon. She was there for loving service. She did not say a word. Bne began to worship and adore. Simon did not furnish any toilet for his guest. No kiss of welcome, no water for dusty feet, no oil for the head. O, what a foundation was laid for the regeneration of man in Christ Our Lord! Wheu Simon began to justify himself and feel ashamed of a reclaimed woman, Jesus rises in the very delicacy of divine ness of courtesy and gently rebukes Simon and is not afraid to apeak in defense the sinner redeemed. This woman “knew,”—it was rumored around town —that Jesus would that day stop at Simon’s house and so she was just going to step in a moment, not as a guest, but a worshiper, to ^report herself to the Redeemer as in the way of life, and to give occasion for the Savior to make public announcement, then and there, among the critical and gossipers that she was converted, that she was not really a sinner but a redeemed woman. Jesus said, “thy sins be forgiven,” and then “they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, who is this that forgiven sins also?” but Jesus says to the woman again, “thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.” Every time these half-hearted pharisees make an assault, though only “within themselves,” Jesus rises at once in defense of the woman. Simon and his friends conduct themselves with great outward delicacy. But they cannot yet rise to the sense of squarely forgiven sins—what it means. So they cannot help their inward thoughts But Jesus knows their thoughts and replies to them like to audible utterances Doubtless the whole company are ultimately saved through tliia gracious meeting, aud if so this woman’s presence brought out the lines of love in all their divine fullness. But that this woman was already far in advance of this pharisee in spiritual expenses, even at one bound, is evident. Simon rightly judged that he who had been much forgiven had greater gratitude. But he was yet in the caviling but she already in the worshiping mood. He was in the doubts, but she in the depths of love. He was judging her in his heart unworthy, yet she was reading in the awakening dawn of a new born life Amos Steckel, TRANSIENT’S TRAMP. A GLANCE AT THE Y. I. IAFAN. C.

Written for Tux Hawk-Eye. Lesson Statement—A pharisee, called Simon, invited Jesus to eat with him at his house. A woman, who had been a sinner, enters while all sat at meat. She approaches Jesus, and profuse tears fall from her on his feet, where she weeps, and wipes his feet with her hair, kisses and anoints them. Simon feels scandal ized and thinks in himself that Jesus ought not to alow the touch of a sinner thus if he were a prophet. But he answers in defense with the parable of the two debtors who were forgiven, declares her sins forgiven and sends her away in peace, (will the reader please always read the full record before he does these notes). Jesus accepted the invitation of the pharisee. There was no sectarianism in him. It is said when this “woman knew that Jesus sat at meat at the pharisee's house she (came) brought an albaster box of ointment,” etc. Geike mentions the extraordinary preciousness of this ancient anointing oil by saying that a preserved flask two or three thousand years old in Alnwick Castle now opened still retains its delightful smell. And whether or not the bodily olfactories can sense the aroma now, we do know that the oil of consolation flows from that ancient alabaster box to the broken hearted sinner to-day. There are so many angels of truth in this lesson that selection is bewildering. We may spec ially note the three types of life and char actor. The pharisee, though a pharisee, was smitten somewhat in the inner man by the teaching of Jesus. He was a lit Work, Will and Walt.—The Changed Ideal of Feminine Beauty. [Copyright, 1890.] The change in the ideal of feminine beauty in t he last generation is striking. The present generation will remember the pictures hanging in their mother’s parlors of ideally beautiful women. These pictures represented a female with a largo, bulging forehead, hollow chest, sloping shoulders and a thin neck, curved something like a crooked necked squash. A general consumptive exples-sion pervaded the female’s face, the more consumptive the more lovely. Long curls drooped about her cheeks, and generally a full blown red rose was perched in her hair above the left ear. The picture usually bore the name “Isabella,” “Rosabella” or “Angelina.” But all this, which maybe called the crooked necked squash stylo of feminine beauty, has vanished from the earth. The tailor made girl is now the beauty. She has square shoulders, a full neck, a flat back, and carries her head erect. The ancient sloping shoulder line, which artists of that day considered the curve of ideal beauty, in our time would stamp a girl as round shouldered to a-de-formity, and send her in haste to the gymnasium to practice exercises that would send her out again flat of back, square of shoulder and full and deep of doest. The ideal feminine beauty has uow a suggestion of strength that it. it had in modern times and which Jrings it nearer to the ancient Greek model than it has ever been before. We begin to understand that strength combined with harmonious development constitutes perfect beauty. The women artists of New York have set a good example to their sex elsewhere. A number of the strongest of them have formed a club of their own, called the Woman’s Art club. They have grown iii influence and numbers till they are now able to give art receptions of their own, aud very creditable ones, too. The newpapers announced that Bishop Hurst's wife “died at the residence of her husband.” Cannot a woman hav« a home of her own even to die in? A minister writes iii The Chicago Advance that he had lately attended a banquet at which 150 women were present, and many of them made dinner speeches. They had toasts and a toast master and a rub' forbidding any woman to speak more than two minutes. The speeches were not only able and witty, but they were audible. “I shall now,” said the minister, “feel more at liberty to urge the women to take part in prayer meetings.” Mrs. M. O. W.

Beside the local work of each association, it is, through its Btate and international committees, continually pushing into new fields and increasing the number and efficiency of its societies. The following paper, regarding what has recently be^n accomplished in Japan as the result of the work, was prepared and read by the general secretary of the Burlington association at the monthly business meeting last Monday evening: Y. M. C. A. WORK IN JAPAN. Located in Sapporo, in the northwestern part of the island of Yesso, the northern island of the empire of Japan, is the Sapporo Agricultural college. It was founded in 1876 by President Clark, of the Amherst, Massachusetts. Agricultural college. When he arrived in Japan to inaugurate the enterprise, at the invitation of the government, he was informed that teaching the Bible to the students would not be allowed He promptly replied that as a high toned morality was indispensable in the successful conduct of a college, and morality was inseparable from the Bible, he could not proceed if the Bible was to be discontinued. His firm attitude had the desired effect and he was permitted to teach it as muck as he pleased. The result of his teaching was the conversion of a band of thirty-one students, who, on the 5th of March, 1877, formed an organization called Believers in Jesus. About a year later the members of the Believers in Jesus wrote a letter to the Christian students of the Massachusetts Agricultural college, where President Clark Had resumed his work. The letter related the facts and requested the prayers and sympathy of the students iD Amherst. The letter was sent to Mr. L. D. Wishard, then the college secretary of the International Committee of the Young Men’s Christian associations and awakened in his mind the thought of the evident adaptibility of organized Christian work among students in Japan. Various circumstances strengthened the belief that about three years ago Mr. Wishard began to make arrangements for making a tour of the orient in the interests of the association work, especially among students. Before undertaking the work he consulted with the leading representatives of the church and missionary boards, and was strong ly encouraged by them on the understanding that he would represent in the foreign mission lands the definite work of the American associations. The world’s conference of the Young Men’s Christian Association at the Stockholm Sweden, in 1888 endorced Mr. Wishard’s plan and elected him as the “Student and Foreign Secretary of the Central International committee ” Meanwhile, early in 1888, Mr. John T. Swift, General Secretary of the Orange, New Jersey, asso ciation, left his work and went to take a position as teacher of English in one of the mission colleges of Tokio, Japan. From a circular issued recently by the New York Association, I extract the following regarding his work:    “While teaching English in one of the mission colleges in Tokio, and studying Japanese, he made a study also of the condition of the young men, and the Christian work done among them. He found about one hundred and fifty nominally Young Men’s Christian associations, but really more like our Societies of Christian Endeavor, being all attached to individual mission churches. Tokio seemed peculiarly the place in which to establish a strong asso ciation specially designed to reach non Christian young men not identified with the individual churches. Besides being the great commercial mart, it is the great educational center of tho nation, eighty thousand students being in attendance at its university, colleges and high schools The Imperial University was considered such a stronghold of infidelity that Mr Swift’s success in gathering enough Christian students to begin a vigorous association there was a surprise both to the native ministers and to the missionaries. He organ ized associations also in the Upper Middle College and the First Commercia College, and aided in putting on a broad undenominational basis, and greatly in creasing the activity of the central asso ciation already formed in Tokio. Imme diately, however, the need of a suitable building or buildings for these associa tions became evident and pressing. In September of 1888 Mr. Swift was greatly encouraged by receiving the offer of Christian business man in this country to give $25,000 toward such a building. In January, 1889, at the request of the New York association and the American international committee, Mr. Swift gave up his work of teaching in order that he might devote himself entirely to the development of young men’s work in that empire Mr. Wishard left this country. December 18, 1888, and reached Japan, January 8, 1889 He met Mr. Swift and a number of Christian Japanese students and arranged for a series of meetings in the leading Christian college of Japan located at Kyoto. In writing about those first meetings Mr. Wishard says: “We entered the work there with nope and trembling, a unique combination of sensations, you say. Our faith in the presentation of the facts concerning Christian Work in American colleges filled us with a firm hope that the recital would find a response in these warmhearted oriental youths. But while students are more alike than unlike the wide world over, there are enough points of dissimilarity between the young men of the far east and far west to cause some trembling, as we inaugurate the long expected college association tour in the east. The difficulty of learning to speak effectively through an interpreter can only be appreciated by those who have served at the apprenticeship. Not knowing just what to do we pursued exactly the same course which we had followed so often in American colleges, and the work from the beginning to the end of the visit was so similar to an American college revival that any special description is scarcely necessary. We held one meeting daily at 6 or 6:30 in the evening. The day of prayer for colleges and Hie Sabbaths were field days and were filled with meetings. A strong committee was appointed to follow up the inquiring and bring them and the in different into contect with experienced Christians. As a rule the same subjects were treated which characterize even gelistic work in America Some special addresses upon the supernatural origin of the Scriptures, and the evidences. a ingle Christian in Japan. I shall con sider my mission to the young men of the east a success if it simply enables me to say to the students of the Christian and government schools that while only one in twenty of all classes of our American young men combined is a member cf an Evangelical church, between one-laif and one-third of the young men in .he colleges and universities are profess-Dg Christians. As some indication cf ie progress of the work, I will say that I ally one hundred men attended a meeting for new converts, held a week be j'ore we left. The same evening fifty men in a meeting for the unconverted announced their determination to begin ]graying for themselves and to seek Christ, as it was expressed, until they j’ound Him ” Bo the work continued. From Kyoto, r. Wishard and Mr. Swift went to okyo, about which Mr. Wishard wrote, The field is large; there are nearly 80,- plexion, and mildly insinuating as to OOoTtudents in" the^higher^ educationalIhints concerning fees, roused us from a institutions of Tokyo, and as large a pro-1 Bound and dreamless sleep, with the call portion of young men as you will find ini for breakfast.

True to the prediction of the conductor say the 1.250,000 inhabitants include over 200,000 young men.” Meetings were held with like success in Tokyo and several months were spent in visiting schools and colleges at other places in the empire. One especially interesting occasion was on June 6, when Mr. Wishard entered the lall of the Sapporo Agricultural College. in the world and the twelfth of the intercollegiate movement. Dr. Sato, one of the original members of the Believers in Jesus, now a professor in the college was his int rpret6r.

After the whooping cough and measles left me at the age of three years, my health was so impaired that every scamp of a disease that couldn’t find employment elsewhere, spent its force on my poor frame. The last malady I made the acquaintance of prior to the beginning of my narrative was ague and spinal affection, the ravages of which only left me ninety-six pounds, body, boots and baggage all told, and all this, at the age of sixteen. In the spring of 1876, at the above named age, I realized that if I were not soon cured I would be a helpless invalid all my life; this made my Irish blood run high and I decided to go to the country as a farm hand. The next four weeks were spent in search of a farmer who wanted a “hand;” but one look at my frail figure and pale face convinced the farmers they did not want a town-boy “hand.” aud I was rejected I kept up a continual search, however, prompted by the dread of another summer in town with the ague. At last there came a day when all good “hands” were employed and the loafers and small boys were left in the village. I was in my father’s cabinet shop making a foot stool which I in tended to present to Mrs Ross (the lady that broke up my ague) when I h*ard ROYALTY AT DINNER.

I have one. Mr. Crawford, that doesn’t swear or lie. and obeys very well, but as for being good to work I can’t say, as his health is so bad; would you like to try him?” “Where is thy boy ?” Charles? Yes, sir, I replied, laid down my saw and went to the door. Mr, Crawford wants a boy to drop corn Can you go?” “Yob sir, I am re-dy now,” I replied. Mr. Crawford said, “What’s thy name, bub, and how old is thee? ’ “My name is Charles; I am sixteen? “Sixteen!” he repeated; “don’t think I want thee.” I was too mindful of the dread ague to be put off by this, and insisted that he take me. Mr. Crawford didn’t believe I was as old as I said, and refused because he thought I “storied.” Presently he asked, “In what year was thee born?” “April, I860,” I replied. This state ment seemed to convince him and he continued:    “How much does thee want per week or month for thy work Charles?” I replied, “I want my board and washing.” “Is that all?” said he; and I continued, “Just what money you think I earn.” “Well, that’s reason able; get in the wagon and we will go to work.” “I must bid mother good by,” I said, “and get my clothes for I expect to stay all summer.” After all this was done I got in and rode home with him. I improved in health very fast, and was soon getting $16 per month and washing and was offered a horse to ride to the “Valley” Sabbath school each Sunday ; and each time on my return, Mr. Crawford would take me through a course of questions to see if I was on the right road, as he termed it. My people were Methodists. Yet I did not believe as they did or as Mf. Crawford did, and at Sunday school made it a point to strengthen my belief and find fault with them. Monday morning we were up early and plowing corn; Mr. Crawford said nothing was so good for corn as to have a man’s breath on it before sunrise; consequently we were blowing our breath on the growing corn and dyeing morning-glory vines before the first rays of old Sol could be seen in the east; but Providence had or dained a day of rest and before noon we were lying on the hay in the barn entry. and the rain was pattering on the roof in a steady, slow, shower which seemed to insure a half day’s rest, if it stopped at once. As we lay there plan ning the following week’s work, I saw a lizzard peep from a hole in one of the logs and eye us cautiously a few mo ments, then disappear and in another moment it returned and with it another. They slid cautiously from the log and went into a box of axle grease at the other end ©f the barn. I then told Mr Crawford and we thought to kill or catch them. He took a curry comb and I a stick. I punched in vigorously and out ran one lizzard, but before he could strike it had gone up inside his sleeve, out at his collar and was near its hiding place. It was cold and slimy like a snake and scared him as it would anybody, and in bk excitement he exclaimed, “Oh Lord.” The instant he said it I thought of the commandment “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord, thy God, in yarn,” and put up a job to catch the old quaker. I said, “Mr. Crawford, you are too slow, the students of Japan. Arrangements were made, and early in July last six hundred delegates were present at Kyoto at this first Japanese summer school. Mr. Wishard wrote: “The key-note or watch-cry of the assembly was ‘Make Jesus King,’ and these words were cabled to the Northfield Summer School in session during the same time. Mr. Wishard continued his work in Japan until October 8th, when he sailed from Ceylon. Before closing let me give in fir. Wishard’s own words, a picture from one of the student meetings: “One of the the most interesting and the most difficult features of the work consisted in the inquiry meetings. We held two argo ones in the chapel at the close of the evening services. It was an imposing sight to see a score of groups of from three to six unconverted students gathered about a professor or experienced Christian Btu-' dent eagerly discussing the plan of salvation. The meetings for personal work were generally held in our private rooms. Sometimes forty or more students would crowd in and spend from one to two hours. It was a joy indescribable to answer their eager questions and lead them step by step into the ight. One of those meetings I shall never forget. The company was pretty evenly divided—about half of them skeptical concerning the inspiration of the Bible, the divinity of Christ, the immortality of the soul, etc.; while the balance were settled upon these points and were willing to accept Christ as their Saviour. I divided the crowd, leaving the skeptics with Mr. Bartlett, of Dartmouth,’87, who was one of the first of the pledged missionary volunteers to reach the foreign field, and who has a special knack for meeting skeptical objections. I took the others into an adjoining room. There were about twenty-two of them. After talking for some time about the plan of salvation, I asked those who had already accepted Christ, or were willing to accept him there and then, to announce it. Fully seventeen did so, and the reasons which they gave for their hope in Christ were as satisfactory as you will ordinarily hear in an American college. Four or five fellows listened earnestly On retiring the shoes were carefully tucked away under the lower berth as usual, without a thought of disaster. In the morning those tan colored shoes were black as the ace of spades and polished till they shone again. You may well imagine the brief and impres sive discourse that followed. The porter claimed he had blacked the sl oes in a dark corner of the car without noticing the color, but a few days later a fellow passenger, that made the return trip in the same sleeper, informed me of a confidential communication from that porter to him, in effect that the United Association of P. P. C. Porters had resolved “that the manufacture of tan-colored shoes was a blow at a time-honored industry and not to be tolerated,” hence the disaster to my footgear. The writer will meet that porter sooner or lster, and immediately thereafter will occur a vacancy in the ranks of Mr. Pullman’s employes. A description of Omaha for the benefit of your readers would be useless as so many of our former citizens are now ret idents of that beautiful city, and love to descant upon its merits and advantages, and have well improved their opportunities in that respect. The city is the coming metropolis of the west without doubt Kansas City may at present boast of a larger population but Omaha is making tremendous strides forward and not only in point of population but in solid and costly private and public buildings, in manufactures, in the character of her business enterprises, in magnificent ays terns of street and other public improvements, and better than all in the enlight ened and refined class of citizens among the later comers. After attending to business duties we dropped in at the Bee building and watched the wonderful press take the paper from an enormous roll, print, cut, fold and even count the completed pa pere with almost the quickness of thought. Omaha is noted for the perfection of her newspapers in every de tail, however, and we need not enlarge on that topic.

Mr. Boosey suggests, as far as his name goes, a person of intemperate habits, but he really is a staunch advocate of cold water as a beverage. He has held for years the position of assistant carver mid sergeant-footman to Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, and he has made it the hobby of his lifetime, not only to become intimately acquainted with the gastronomical likes and dislikes of England's Gracious Monarch, and those of the members of her family, but, thanks to a persevering correspondence with the cooks and chief dinner attendants of the different European Courts, he knows to a mouthful—so to speak—the favorite dishes of every King, Emperor, Queen, and Empress at present occupying thrones. ’Her ^fajesty’, observed Mr. Boosey, ‘has been ridiculously maligned. A few weeks ago, I read in a Boston and also in a Philadelphia paper, that the Queen of England drank strong ale, and nad a predeliction for radishes in vinegar: How ridiculous! Once in a blue moon her Majesty asks for a glass of beer, and then it must be half-and-half, that is a bottle of porter is mixed with some Bass’ ale. qUBEN VICTORIA’S DAILY FARE. The Queen, like most of the other royalties, is a moderate and simple eater, relates Mr. Boosey. Im the morning, while still in bed. a cup of chocolate is given to her, with a square of hot un-buttered toast. At about ten o’clock, breakfast is served, the Queen taking lean crisp fried bacon, with an egg, and some thin slices of bread and butter This is varied on different mornings by substituting a bloater or a dried haddock for the bacon. At 2. p. rn. her Majesty takes a cup of vegetable soup, with two glasses of claret, and generaUy a little cold chicken or game. During the after noon tea is served once or twice. At dinner, usually at 8 o’clock, the Queen takes a good deal of soup, very seldom any fish unless it be salmon, of which she is very fond; always a slice of beef mutton, with vegetables and the thigh part of whatever game is in season. An ice, or some grapes finishes the royal repast, and with it she drinks a glass of sherry, two of claret, and occasionally half a tumbler of champagne. Th* queen likes it in a tumbler. Before re tiring, her majesty unvariably takes t glass of warm whisky and water, and a biscuit. When in Scotland, she be gins he breakfast with a little porridge Has she her likes and dislikes? Why of course just like other old ladies. Some times she has an appetite for dinner and inclined for something nice served in her own bedroom and shared by a favorite lady-in-waiting. It is then that tbe German comes out of her majesty. I have known her to ask for (liver) sausage and beer and pickled pigs foot, and not at a1 an uncommon supper at Osborne, is a meas of shell fish well saturated with vinegar. Her majesty’s favorite dish, however, is without doubt, salmon, boiled, grilled or pickled. The prince of Wales is a more elabor ate eater and likes half a dozen dishes and plenty of them. He insists on thick soup; never touches potatoes or pastry, and declares that a saddle of mutton with jelly is the true epicure’s bon bouche. He is a hearty breakfast eater and usually takes both fish and meat with half a pint of claret and a cup of coffee. The princess of Wales is a light eater, but strange to say, adores roast pork with plenty of seasoning. Her royal highness is also very partial to spring onions and salad generally. The duchess of Fife dislikes soups and sweets and generally dines off birds Her husband, the duke, has an enormous appetite, and does not care what he eats Prince Albert Victor is the epicure of the English roysl family. He eats daintily and drinks sparingly—all the family are temperate in liquids—but a badly cooked dish, or a cold entree usually provokes the temper of the future Prince of Wales and King. Prince George, the sailor prince, confesses to having next to no idea of flavor Eating to him is filling a void in hie stomach. He likes solid slices of meat, and has been known to eat a couple of pounds of steak at a single meal He drinks as much beer as a German student. unless it be a mass called a goat stew, to which flour dumplings and slices of lemon are added. The sultan has a moderate apatite, but is a good drinker, despite the precepts of the Koran. A hasty meal is always served to him directly v-nen he awakes. Of the tastes of his many wives, it is difficult to say, but it is stated that he had one of IUs sultanas tied up in a sack and dropped in the Bosphorus for eating too freely of onions. King Humbert of Italy affects to be Eaguish and cai’s for rare steak and thick mutton chops. The Italian royal table is noted for its solid simplicity, and when strictly “en famine,” the king likes to carve the joint in front of him, like the English father of a family. His beautiful and amiable queen is a fragile eater and has a distinct course served for her. Well seasoned entrees and cooks, ‘works of art” generally please her majesty. But the joy of cooks is her majesty of Rouni ar is, the poetess queen of King Charles, known in the literary world as Carmen Sylvia.’ This illustrious lady says that the world does not know how much it owes to the stomach and it is cooks who have made thrones rock and monarchs totter in their shoes. She and the cook are almost comrades, and every moi ning, an hour is spent in earnest consultation regarding tho menu of the day. Her majesty has invented several salad and sauce combinations, and occasionally cooks a dish for the king with her own hands. The king of Roumania, like a sensible man, agrees with his wife, but being a man of somewhat gross appetite, goes in occasionally for midnight suppers—carousals which the queen does not attend. The Queen Regent of Spain says tho only thing she can not adopt in her son’s kingd rn is the national taste in eating. She hates onions and the reason she permits her ministers to smoke at cabinet councils and generally puffs at her cigarette herself, is that the reverened senors usually have breaths so impregnated with garlic, that tobacco is necessary to prevent the queen from fainting. She eats sparingly of plain beef, mutton and chicken, and likes soup and claret with every meal. She seldom touches tea or or coffee or bread, and is fond of a glass of beer after riding or driving. King Christian of Denmark won’t eat veal, pork or lamb. He is almost a vegetarian and likes salads aud cold vegetables for supper and breakfast. He drinks champagne and coffee. PECULIAR PADS OF ROYAL DINERS An eccentric eater is King Charles of Wurtemberg. He hardly eats at all during the day, but likes a long meal of several courses served at midnight, rather a trial to the digestion of his courtiers, who sup with him in turns. He is fond of liver baked and served with veal stuffing. He never eats or drinks anything except a cup of coffee and a roll, until be has been up and about for nearly half the day, The regent of Bavaria has an inordinate desire for fish His favorite dish is a huge codfish stuffed with sausage meat and apples. Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria takes the priz_* as the most eccentric of all the sovereigns, great and small, of Europe. His bread has to be made after a special recipe of the late empress of Russia, which she sent to the mother of the prince, Princess Clementine. Chickens, ducks and other birds have to be plucked ar I kept in ice for three days before cooking, and beef and mutton are never served unless in the form of a ragout or hash lf the prince is to have fish, he likes one of the servants to bring it alive in a basin for personal inspection. a* d a i mall pond, full of various kinds of shell fisn, is under the special supervision of his highness; sea water being artificially introduced at great expense bs it has to be brought in huge barrels from a long distance Like Lu-cultus Prince Ferdinand thinks nothing is too sacred for the stomach, anil a pie of linnets is not an unfrequent dish at the palace of Sofia ‘As great a glutton as Ferdinand’ is already a proverb with the Bulgars. “Last, but not least, in this account of royal eaters,” concluded Mr. Boosey, “is His Holiness Leo XIII. He is a dear old gentleman, and eats because nature demands it; that’s all. He asks, whenever his wishes are consulted, for something soft, with plenty of gravy, and a little claret and water. It offends the pontiff to be served with any part of a bird which suggests its form in life, the leg or wing, for instance; consequently, poultry and game are never put on the table, but portions of the breast are placed before His Holiness, who, by the way, invariably eats alone It is contrary to religious etiquette for the pope to share a meal with anybody, even a brother monarch. If a king calls at the papal dinner hour, he is served in a separate room with his suite ” Ind., writes: “Electric Bitters has done I legged on the ground several children of | more for than all other medicines I various aget and sizes.

You would hardly think it, but the present emperor of Germany is one of the most difficult men to satisfy. The moment he awakes he wants a glass of beer. His breakfast must include some slices of ham, with several other things. With bis roasts he likes to eat preserved plums and figs and with fish he always demands mustard. Then at odd times he calls for soup, and just before he goes to bed he will eat a supper of cold meat and pickles sufficient to give an army nightmare. His wife, the empress, likes plenty of pastry, and only eats fish for breakfsst The emperor of Russia resembles the prince of Wales in his likes and dislikes, except that he prefers everything cooked to a cinder, and eats enormous quantities of oysters. One particular dish of his he attempted to introduce at the Marlborough house, and failed completely, and no wonder. It is a Russian national delicacy and consists of sheep brains stewed with sugar and garlic and then served with dumplings and slices cf fst bacon. The empress of Russia pins her faith to chicken in any style. Her majesty often remarks that as far as she is concerned, the bern door fowl is the only “to be eaten” animal that need exist The emperor of Austria is purely German in his taste, tad likes to fare like a Heidelburg student Bauer kraut and bacon is served to bim twice a week, and so is stockfiak, an atrocious preparation of dried codfish boiled with cucumbers aud eaten by his majesty for breakfast. He now drinks nothing but Rhine wine, but in his younger days drank large quantities of beer. The empress of Aas tria is also German in her tastes, and likes veal soaked in vinegar and raw her ring salads.
