From 1886 to 1890 he commanded tho troops in Bombay, and ho has since held the Portsmouth and Aldcrshot command's, and that of the Forces In Ireland. In 1901 he became tho first Inspector-General of the Force and In 1908 he was appointed to the Mediterranean command, which, it will be remembered, he resigned. It was a great disappointment to him that he was not permitted to share the risks the Boer. War. His patriotism was strikingly shown by hia refusal ot the Grand Duchy of Sa.ve-Coburg, In order to retain his British Nationality, Begins Military Life It was in 189C that the Duke of Connaught entered the Royal M.iiitarj-Academy at Woolwich as a cadet; in 18G8 he received his commission as a lieutenant in the Royal Engineers, and in the following year as a lieutenant in tho Royai Artillery, lie v/as appointed, at the same time, a lieutenant in the Rifle Brigade, a rogimunt whose war record begins with "Copenhagen," Includes the greatest battles ot the Peninsular war, Waterloo, the Cri mean "war, and the Mutiny, the first Ashantl war, and Afghanistan, Burma, and Khartoum. Ills Royal Highness is now, and has been since 1880, the Col-oneHii-Chlef of that distinguished corps.

In 1864 Prince Arthur, as ho was known up to that time, was created Duke of Connaught and Strathearn and Earl of Sdasex. His Engagement Announced. In 1878, at a council held at Windsor, Queen Victoria announced his engagement to the Princess Louise Marguerite, of Prussia, third daughter of Prince Frederick dharles, known as "The Red Prince" and grandnlece of the late Emperor William of Germany The marriage was celebrated at Windsor on the 13th of March, 1879. Their children are Prince Arthur Frederick Albert, born at Windsor in 1883, and now a lieutenant In the 7th Huasars, to which regiment he was appointed in January of last year; Princess Margaret, born In 1882; and Princess Victoria Patricia, born in 1886. In 1873 the Duke" ot Connaught was brigade major at Alderahot, and brigade major to the cavalry brigadier at AUlershot In 1875 ;and from October that year till the following April he was assistant adjutant-general at Gib-ralter. In September of 1878 lie was a lieutenant-colonel In the Rlllo Brigade, and In 1880 a full colonel. / In that same year he become major-general, and commanded a brigade at Aldershot. First War Experience It was in 1882 that the Duko ot Connaught had his first experience of war, when, in command of the 1st Brigade o'f the Guards, he commanded the expeditionary force under Lord Wolseiey to Egypt. He was preaent at the de--feat of Arabl Pasha's army at Tel-el-Kcblr. For his services In that campaign he was mentioned in deapatcbea rocelvod tho thanks of both houses ot parliament, and was made a Companion ot tho Bath. He holds the modal with clasp for that campaign and received from tho Khedive the Second Clasp of tho Medije and the Khedlve'B Star. He was appointed honorary colonel of the 13th Bengal Lancers while that regiment was serrlng ia Egypt.

The Uuko. of Connaught's connection with tile Dominion is a long and pleasant one-, says a Canadian writer, and Canadians one and all welcome with open arma His Royai Highness as Governor-General. Forty years ago then a youth of twenty, but already the Keenest of soldiers, the Duko came to Canada and served tiirough the Fenian Raid; and one of tho most Interesting reminiscences recalls his visit to the Indian resei-ve, some distance west of Montreal, when he was made "blood brother am\ chief" of the Iroquois, most powerful ot the once all-powerful but now wholly degraded n.ative tribes known as the Six Nations Indians of Canada. The scene of the jirince's Initiation Is delightfully described by Lady Dufforln, In her "Ueminscences." A grand. "pow-wow" was held in honor of the soidler-son of the Great White Queen. Tlie chief, a splendid man, carried a pole or standard, that was fringed with great feathers from top to bottom. His coar.so, � black hair Nvas studded with eagle's feathers, and his red cloth tunic was embroidered with beads, and had ermine talis hanging from all the seanis. Round his neck was fastened a necklace, of bear's claws, and, though ho wore Europoiui trousers there were moc-ca8iii.pri'nce who (lechired himsolf hlgiily delighted with tho pictiirosaueuosa of tho proceeding's. Since liien the Duke has several times returned to the Dominion, each vIhU onhancing not only his own, but his Cauiilly's popularity; while his son, Prince Arthur- the only adult prince hi the blood ot England-won on hiK own account golden opinion in Canada when he' toured tho country four years ago. The Duke In Egypt. In 1879 the Uuke of Connaught married IjOiilso, only daughter ot that brilliant soldier. Prince Frederick Charles ot Prussia, who during the campaign of 1870-71 was known na the Rod Prince. Less than three years later tho Duke Joined the ISgyptlan .IC.fpedltionnry Force, and was present nt the battle of Mahuta, while, after tiie engagement at Tel-el-Keblr, Sir Gurnet Woisoley lelograplied to tho Quepn in Ilnlmoral that ilie Duke "had behaved admirably, leading his brigade to the attack," For ins prowess -In the l'':iBt 111k Royal Highness received several orders, niul the thanks of both houses ot parliament and was later made commandor-ln-chiof of tho troops at Bombay, wliero his close study of Indian array ad- ministration has since borne fruit in moi-e than one speech In the House of Lords, where he spoke as an expert. Refused Crown of Cobourg. His Royal Ilighiiess was appointed to the command of tho forces in Ireland, which post, though' held for only a very short time, made him immensely popular in Dublin, where his sterling abilities, fine simplicity of character and great charm of manner endeared him to everyone with whom he came in contact. Just before the Duke of Connaught went to Ireland, Prince Albert ot Cobourg, only son of the Duke of Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha, died suddenly. It is fresh In most ot our finds hoxf the Duke resigned all his right and title to the duoal throne (as did his son. Prince Arthur), and declared his dolcrminatlon "not to accept the succession to Cobourg, but to remain in England in his present position." A keen, zealoim and capable soldier, the Diike, us everyone Itnows, when the war Jn South Africa broke out, was most an.vlous to get a commission. The refusal of the government of the day to accede to his repeated requests was considered in army circles as perhaps inevitable, but was nevertheless "but scant justice to an able soldier," though the Duke himsoll with his chnriicterisUc good sense, when the kn^n edge or his disappointment had worn off, acknowledged that Royalty after nil might perhaps, even with the best intentions in tho world, be something- ot a nuisance on tho battletleld. Made Inspector-General. In 1904, after tho reorganl'/;ation of the war olllco, ho was given the new post of inspector-general ot the forces and prosldcnl ot the selection board, but his teuure was not satisfactory to him, a-ad his recommendations to tho council did not always receive tht con.sideratlon to wh.lch they were en-(Uled; and lluiugli question's were asked In Parli;i'".:-'it when H.l.q Royal illghnoss retired from the board, no steps have sincu utiui talten to reinstate him. After loss than four yoars the Duke became coniniauder-ln-chiof in the .Mediterranean, hut this position, loo, was given up of, his own accord �ioma two years later, on the pioa that his duties were not in Ills Hoynl Highness' opinion -sulUcientiy onerous or -noccissury to justify him in retaining the appointment. In other words the Uuko does not care to bo merely a llgurpliead. HIk, Imperial Value. SIneo then the Duko has been without a post, n state of aitaipj from every point of view regrettable, but especially from an empire standpoint, for England, after all, is -not so ovor-rim with men tliat she can afford to dispense unnecessarily with the services of even one. Tho Duko of Connaught, In adrtiilon to tho prestige at- taching him as only brother ot the late King Edward, is a man of quite exceptional ability, and undeniable Imperial value. Ho ia a good speaker has a strong sense it duty and singular honesty of purpose, and with it all he combines that gentleness and charm which would be invaluable in a viceroy (whose duties, after all, are very largely social), and which were such salient characteristics of that most able of men, his father, the Prince Consort. It is said that no royalty more readily pardons a breach of etiquette than the Duke of Connaught, for, though he learned from his uncle, the Duke of Cambridge, not a few ot the habits of tho martinet, his unfailing good humor, Wnd heart and sense of fun have mercifully preserved from him the most aggressive attributes of what has been called the "martlnetian malady." Has A Good Time. From a purely social point of view, the Duke of Connatight and hia family enjoy, perhaps, a better time than any other royaltfCs. At royal weddings, funerals, christenings, and the like, all over Europe the Duke certainly pays the price of his position by enforced attendance; and when royal visitors como to England his delightful manners and h;^ndsome appearance make him on those occasions also Indispensable. But very often now Prince Arthur ot Connaught takes his father's place while as for tho Duchess and her pretty daughter. Princess Patricia, It Is their fortunate lot to combine with all the prorogiUives and none ot tho penalties of royalty all tho advantages of tho very rich and absolutely leisured commoner. The Duke's income, wlilch Is, ot cour.se, granted him from tlio state, amounts to $125,000 a yoar, $75,000 of which was granted by act of par-iiniuoiit In 1871, when he was introduced at privy council, and an additional ?,'')0,000 on his marriage in 1879, Tho sum Is, ot course. In addition to the private, moans of the Duke. With the army rank and lilo the Duke (who, hy the way, is olTiclal head of Free Masonry in England, and India) was always exceptionally popular. From these not over lenient critics, His Royal Highness' read "grit". Indefatigable oriorgy and complete inastory of his profession, im-pelli-id admiration; while, on the human side, the general's" charming bonhomie, warm symiiathy and kindly feeling was universally appreciated. A SOIDIER'S WIFE Her Royal Highnet* Takai Octp Interest in Soldier's Ufa. Worth TO GIVE DOCTORS MORE REMUNERATION London, Oct. 8.-Tho cabinet yes-te-rdiiy considered increased remuneration for the doctors under tho insurance act. It is understocd than It will Increase tho amount by $5,000,000 annually, making possible the payment pi $1.80 per Insured person a year, and thus meeting the doctors more than half way. The doctors declared that the least they would accept was $2.0-1 and the government ^ offered $1.-14 after ttrst,offering 11.08.the'dlttorence. A soldier's wife in every sense of the word Is the Royal lady who gave her heart and hand to His Royal Highness the Duke of Con; naught. The daughter of the Red Princ* the best commander of his day In the German army, the > princess was trained from her earliest years to understand soldlsrs and the anxieties no less than the their ways, to sympathize with their sufferings, and to appreciate dangers which beset the careers of those who hold their lives at the disposal of their country, with death a* their eemmander-ln-chisf. At Portsmouth and at Aldershot no less than over the land across the sea, in the proud city of Imperial India, In which her royal husband was commander-in-chief of the troops, the name of Her Royal Highness Is linked with the prince's In many deeds of kindness and of searching sympathy, not less worthy of note bacauae, with the innate modesty of her woman hood, she has hot allowed them to be proclaimed aloud so that the listening and curious world might hear the daily record of her life. In all that concerns the army Indeed Her Royal Highness has always evinced the greatest keenness and perception, and her knowledge of the scientific part of soldiering Is by no means limited to the mere superficial smattering which sometimes surprises the hearer with its semblance of profundity, but sooner or later reveals itielf In its true lack of merit. Within the circle of her home Her Royal Highness' great Intelligence has found full scope for Its exercise as developed In the education of )n�r dsughters and her son, and her affection In that tender regard for her children and her husband, which has made their home an example for all the homes, not only In the kingdom, but also In the great empire the adopted daughter of which Htr Royal Highness has so worthily become. 4 roomed hotis�(,| plasteved, in good shape, two full l Hitherto weak spot Is made atronfl ' by a New Contrivance Weymouth, Eng., Got. 8.-A special, boom-defence crew bare been engaged > In making a confidential teat of tho . submarine defences of Portland Bay.: v The "Hole In the Wall" or 8ou>tliem � entrance to the harbor, was selectetl as the scene of operations bocausa nt that point the tide runs bo ran- ^ idly that the original net defenses^ have proved ineffectual as even with i-the heavy weight sinkers they cannot retain the position rieceBsayy to clrr Qumvent the entrance of a vubmarlna, What the new style of defence la has not ibeen disclosed but ft is rum- -ored that complete success attended:,' the trials.
