That Js' a tragedy. Kaiserin Augiisto; Victoria is typical motlier-of-ii-family, and sho thinks that being' ivitiiout a child is almost equivalent to being without a- character. Elderly' Kaiserin Augusta Victoria has a .grievance; against her, apart from the baby question. She resents and deplores mournfully the Princess! excessive devotion to high art. IlfRii art runs in the' Schleswig-Holstcin strain from which both .Kaiserin and Princess come. The Kaiscrin's dead a good poetess, and wriitc-'two 'romances about' ScilltSwig fishermen. But the Kaiserin herself has no artistic tastes; she likes red plush curtains and antimacassars, and that though high -art is nil right for AVilheim II. and'for his 'subjects, it" not become an Empress or; a Princess- Ann Princess August Wilhcim is siduously, and painfully artistic. Instead of having children, the pretty Princess spends all, her day sing-ing-, composing, painting, erayonning, em- broidering, fret-working, gardening. Even her charities are artistic, for she invented "Cornflower an institu- tion in favor of consumptives, and the cornflowers which pretty maids sell you in Berlin are highly artificial and artistic. The result of the Princesfj' art obsession is that the Villa Uegnltz is turned into a museum of novelties. On walls, tables, chairs, cabinets, products of high art flaunt ami obtrude themselves. There are paint- ings, photograph-frames, card-boxes, pen-wipers, cush- ions, made or decorated by the pretty prin- cessly hand. .Elderly Kniserin Augusta Victoria, .dislikes this in- tensely. Kaiser Wilhelm treats it indulgently. Probably ho remembers that malicious people criticized even In'.s that him charitable. Tu him, A'illa Uegnkx is known as Villa Villa wherever you go you overturn, spoil, or tread on some product of the princessly talent. Princess August AVilheim wants every man and maid to be as artistic as herself. Two months ngo she started at Bornstadt, to tho north-west of Potsdam, a school in which boys and girls are taught to sing, compose, paint. crayon, embroider, fretwork, anil in vocation. Loyalty and servility Inspire the minor official.'! and servants of PolPdam Palace to send their offspring to this school, but they secretly dread Hie day when their homes to will be filled with photograph and card boxes. piMi-wipers that hold no pens, and pipe-racks so multitudinous that there's no room for pipes.

The five 'formidable beast? were lying nonchalantly stretched on the floor. As she entered Katima raised her .nose and sniffed discjiiictingly; Sultan closed his eyes and bared his ferocious Rosio growled uneasily, ;atul the other lionet's Quite Ignored the girl's presence. This seemed a little too tame for the young suffragist so she.began to crack her whip. The effect, was im- mediate. The lion grot.up and glared fixedly at her; then, followed by the] three lionesses, walfted slowly rolind the cage. .They slopped and faced her. The lions wore now all in front of the door, and her escape was cut off.

Itostc one of the growled continuously, while her tall swung' violently from side to side. Suddenly voices were heard outside. It was tho band of journalists wiio had been invited to "see tlie fun." They instantly took in the situation, ami went off to fetch tho animal tamer. Armed with pitchforks, halt' a dozen attendants tried to force the beasts into a corner, but ft was not easy. The lions absolutely refused to budge from the position they had taken up, and threatened the girl more aggressively. Mademoiselle glared at the Hems unflineii- 'ingly.Jier left band clond-jris a whip, and her right a revolver. Finally the men heated bars of iron, and scared the -'animals awuy from tliu door; but IL was slow work, as the lions retreated inch by inch, and fully ten minutes more .passed before the door free. U was quickly opened, and one second afterwards .the pliuiky young RUfrmgist found hemiU outside-. Mademoiselle Janvier lias fully established her reputation for courage, but she came very near paying a heavy price for it. H> I I1. O'CONNOR.
