THE SHAH'S VISIT TO HATFIELD. The garden party given on Monday by the Marquis and Marchioness of Salisbury at Hatfield House, in honour of the Shah, was a great success, notwithstanding the threatening weather. About 1,000 guests were present, including the Prince and I Princess of Wales and family and members of the diplomatic body. Several exhibitions of skill were given by professional performers, amongst these being Captain Fowler, who showed some clever feats with rifle shooting at glass balls. A member of the Shah's suite caused some alarm to the guests by undertaking unsolicited, an amateur performance with one of Captain Fowler's weapons, but after firing two rounds he was persuaded to desist, to the relief of those in charge of the day's programme. Subsequently the Shah, accompanied by Prince Albert Victor, travelled with his suite to the seat of Earl Brownlow, at Berkhamstead. Lord Salisbury drove with his Majesty to Hatfield Station, where the Shah thanked the Premier for his kindness and hospitality, which he said he would never forget.
