LONDON GOSSIP. THE QUEEN AND THE! EMPRESS MARIE. The second Court, of the season was rather sparsely attended, owing1 in some measure to the atrocious weather, which would have done credit to a Russian win- j ter, 'and it, was a great disappointment j that the Queen was unable to be present. This was the mora regrettable from the fact that her Majesty was suffering1 from a cold, and in, the absence of the Queen, the Princess of Wales took her Majesty's place beside the King on the Royal dais. As a rule, her Majesty is impervious to influenza attacks, but she had been unwell before the Royia-l visit, to Berlin, and unfortunately took La, fresh cold on top. of the one which had been troubling her Majesty for some weeks. Under these circumstances the Queen has been spending most of her time indoors with the Empress Marie of Russia, who has come on her customary Lenten visit to her Majesty. The Empress Marie is in mourning for her brother-in-law, the late Grand Duke Vladimer, and the etiquette of Russian Court mourning is very strict. THE KING ABRiOAD. It is upon medical advice, and on account of his health, rather than for a, holiday, that the King goes abroad for the months of March and April, and whilst at Biarritz his Majesty is a frequent spectator on the golf course, and occa- sionally amuses himself at croquet. The King is especially good at long shots in croquet, which he declares is a "splendid game," and a, special court is set apart for his Majesty's use, adjoining the golf course. Croquet, when played fiercely, is unquestionably a rather aggravating game, and it has been suggested) in the medical Press that people who go through life never indulging in games of any kind have more, wisdom than those who sub- ject themselves to the meint,al strain and vexation of spirit, which often accompany the playing of games. That, however, is not the opinion of the world generally, although it is a point which might per- haps be commended to those people who seldom lose a game without losing their temper, and who cannot take a, philosophical view of the fact that if there are to be winners there must be losers. FORTHCOMING WEDDINGiS. Notable among the pre-Easter weddings will be that of the Duke of Wellington's son and heir, Lords Douro, and Miss Maud Chats, which is to take place in London on March 23rd. This will be the most important of the Lenten Society wed- dings, and a large gathering of influential people will be present. Lord Dalmeny's marriage, to Miss Dorothy Grosvenor will also be a matrimonial event of general interest in the near future, and another interesting wedding will be that of Lord Brooke, son and heir of Lord Warwick, and Miss Elden, daughter of Sir William and Lady Eden. Both weddings will pro- bably take place soon after Easter. The earliest possible date for Easter is March 23rd, and the latest is April 25th. Easter Day falls this year on April 11th, as nearly as possible half-way between the two extremes, and there will be a choice of seventeen clays oipen to those couples who have an objection to a Lenten, or a, May wedding, which is commonly sup- posed to be unlucky. THE COATS FAMILY. In the ordinary course of things, Miss Maud Coats will one day be Duchess of Wellington, not by any means the only one of the duchesses to come of a success- ful business family. The Coats family had its origin in Paisley, formerly famous for its shawls, and it was Miss 'Coats' great- grandfather, Mr James Coats, who in 1824 started the thread manufactory, which is now the headquarters of one of the greatest business organisations in the world. Her father, Mr George Coats, one of the wealthiest of merchant princes, takes an active interest in the management of this colossal business. Mr and Mrs Coats are well-known in Society, and Mrs Clo,%ts' musical parties are a feature of the. Lon- don season, whilst she does a good deal of entertaining both in town and in Scot- land. AN EARL'S. DAUGHTER* IN PRISON. Lady Constance Lytton, one of the many suffragists who have gone to prison for the cause" is nearly connected by mar- riage with Mr A. J. Balfour's family. Her elder sister, Lady Betty Balfour, is the wife of Mr Gerald Balfour, and sister- in-law of the ex-Prime Minister. Lady Constance, is the second daughter of the first Earl of Lytton, who was Viceroy of India from 1876 to 1880, and, her mother was a, great personal friend of the late Queen Victoria. The Lytfons are de- scended from a, certain Sir Robert de Lytton, who. was Comptroller of the Household of Henry IV. The famous novelist, Baron Lytton, was the grand- father of Lady Constance, and his son the late Earl was known to literary fame as a poet under the. pen-name of Owen Mere- dith. 1 LADY FlqANCEIS, BALFOUR. Another ardent sympathiser with the woman's suffrage movement, in the ex- Premier's family, is his srster-in-lawr, Lady Frances Balfour. She is one of the younger daughters of the late Duke of Argyll, and has long taken a deep, interest in politics, literature,, scientifilc and charitable movements. She has inherited her father's oratorical gifts, and Is a persuasive public speaker. Mr Balfour has said that if his sister-in-law had been a man, she, would have been famous as a, great political leader. There, is nothing: unfeminine about the appearance of Lady Frances, but she affects a, sublime in- difference for the vagaries of fashion, and has net hesitated on occasion to speak her contempt for that section of society < which does nothing but seek for a-muse- J ment.

ARE YOU THIN? Increase your weight, lib. per week AND GAIN STRENGTH AND NElRVEi FORCE,. Dr. Cassell's Tablets will, if you are thin, increase your weight lIb. per week, revitalize the nerves, and invigorate and; strengthen the whole body. They can be taken by stout people also without fear of increase of adipose tissue,, owing to their extraordinary power of absorbing super- fluous fat and converting it into blood, bone, muscle, and healthy flesh. Mr John Stokes, 69, Treba,nog Road, C'ymmer, Pbrth, Gla.m., writes, "I suffer- ed terribly from back pains, indigestion, and nerve paralysis, and, was nothing but skin and bone, and very wreak. Art. last, I tried Dr. Cassell's Tablets, and the result. was miraculous. I improved from the first dose, I felt new vigour and energy, and I am now as stout as I have been for years, and altogether a new man." Dr. Cassell's Tablets only cost 10d., 2 larger sizes, 1/1i and 2/9', of all chemists, 2 and are a certain cure for nerve and T_ physical exhaust: on. Few people would cred:'t that we have one still living in our midst who can re- member seeing the Duke of Wellington land at Dover on h's return from Water- loo. This record is held by Mrs Court, a Canterbury centenarian.

CARNARVON LICENSING SESSIONS. I- THREE! LICENCES REFUSED1. At the adjourned annual sessions for the county division of Carnarvon on Satur- day, before Mr D. P. Williams and other magistrates, Mr Nee applied for a. renewal in respect of the Llanfair Arms, Groeslon, to which the police objected on the ground that a former licensee had been convicted. There was no complaint, against the present tenant. Mr Nee, on behalf of the owners, pointed out that not long ago about £600 was spent upon the house, which was now well conducted. Mr Jenkins (Messrs R. G. Davies and Jenkins) appeared for the police. The licence was renewed. The police objected to a renewal for the King's Head, Olwtybont, the licensee hav- ing been convicted for permitting drunk- enness. Mr Allanson appeared in sup- port of the application, which was e- fused. The magistrates also, had served notices of objection in five cases. The first was the Fort Tavern, Llanllyfni, on the ground of redundancy, there being no complaint lodged by the police. The house, is one of three in the village of Llanllyfni. Evidence relating to the facilities afforded by the house having been given, the Chairman inquired if there, was anybody in court desirous of I giving further evidence, Mr Allanson sub- mitted that as none but the magistrates had served a notice, of objection it would not be competent for anybody else to tender evidence. The Clerk; pointed, out that the Bench, if they chose, could call witnesses. Thereupon the Rev. Ceidiog Roberts, C.M. minister at Llanllyfni, was called. He believed that the house in question was quite unnecessary in the vil- lage. The licence was refused and referred for compensation. The remaining two houses in the same I village, the Quarrymen's Arms and the. King's Head, were objected to for the same reason. Mr Nee appeared for the owners and the tenant of the first, house, which had been conducted by the present licensee and his father for a, period of 47 years without any complaint on the part of the police. The second house, whose, tenant was represented by Mr Hamlet Roberts, was described as the only free house in that district "between Snowdon and the sea." A. churchwarden was also called to speak to the convenience, which the house, proved itself to cattle dealers and others. Both these licences were, renewed. Objection was taken to the Halfway Inn, a house situated on the high road between the villages of Penygroes and Talysarn. Mr T. W. Williams, of the former place, said that the house was wholly unnecessary. Mr H. Mienander Jones, a former quarry manager, gave similar evidence. Mr Nee (for1 the owners) Have you been here before opposing this house?- No. Have you ever done anything to raise a club or some other institution for the people who, as you say, are, tempted1?— No, no particular club1, but I do ail I can to advise them. But, you have not, spent any money to raise a, club for them %—No,. The licence was renewed. Mr Hamlet Roberts was for the licensee. The last case was that of Snowdon Val- ley Hotel, Llanberis, for whose licensee Mr Nee appeared. The Rev. J. Evans Owen and two other ministers presented evidence with a. view tc showing that the trade of the house as a house for visitors had fallen off considerably, and that at present the requirements of the place did not call for the house. On the other hand, witnesses came forwafrd to show that the ho,use was frequently made use of by travellers. The licence was refused, and referred for compensation.
SOLD." Picture-dealers are shc.p-men, and have a rLght to' sell their waresa,t the biggest pro- fit but there are artsts who can rival them—Cboper was one. lis studio1 was a manufactory. His pictures were, much of a muichness. He had certain cows and sheep, which he traced and introduced into one pictureaHer another in such a way as to know his own composition and yet never repeat it. He was so eas-ly copied that many spurious Coopers flood-, ed the market, and the wary old Canter- bury painter made a charge for giving his guarantee to' his own works. One dealer to whom Cooper owed a, grudge travelled down to Canterbury with a "Cooper" un- der his arm. He had. justl sold, it for a good price, but required a, guarantee. "You have no objection to oblige me?" said the dealer. "Not at all," replied Cooper, "but first pay my fee,—five guineas—thanks. Now, sir, you go home, and burn that, for I never painted it."

CURTSEYS. AT THE COURTS. It was noticed at the Courts that not a few ladies who had clung to somewhat ad- vanced Directoire notions had consider- able difficulty in making' their curtseys, the graceful "plongeon" giving place to a sligjht bend of the knee. The King has caused it to be known, however, that he prefers the deeper curtsey, when the lady aplpears to sink almost to the ground, and it therefore seems improbable that the ad- vanced Directoire gown will be in evi- dence at the later Courts or at any of the Royal entertainments. GREY AND WHITE. In Paris a craze, exists at the moment for a combination of grey and white. f3f' far we have left the notion somewhat severely alone, which is an item to de- plore, as few combinations are so entirely successful as this particular one. The white-Paæisiennes see to it carefully- verges on pale grey, and the grey is almost white in certain lights. "POPLIN TAFFETAS." The arrival of "poplin-taffetas" will not cause surprise. The instant, a, demand arises for a particular fabric, manu- facturers begin to turn out all kinds of materials bearing: its name, the majority being totally unlike ib. This, however, is not the case with "poplin taffetas," which iis woven with a very fine and scarcely perceptible rib- in it, so that the fabric, seen from a short, distance, closely resembles a rich bengaline silk. NIGHTCAPS AND PIN-CURLS. The bewitching, frilly nightcap has, for some time past, found a place in the fashionable wardrobe, but it is only quite lately that we have followed the French idea of tacking into the front of these caps, pretty little pin-curls. The notion- not an expensive one—is most, certainly becoming, more especially when hair- wavers are used. The inevitable scent I sachet is tricked into the folds of the crown. WOMEN'S UMBRELLAS. All concerned are crying out that the demand for women's umbrellas is con- siderably less than in days gone by. The cause for this state of affairs is not. far to seek. Women lead a very different life to that which fell to their share, say in early Victorian times. Outdoor sports are the order of the day, and even if a woman does not indulge in sports, she has at least learned to walk. Moreover, women have learned to dress for the part they play, and have rain-proof clothes for rainy days. Consequently there is much less need for the umbrella, which is generally regarded by the athletic as a nuisance and therefore left at home when- ever possible. HOME INDUSTRIES. The Princess of Wales has dispatched yet another large order to Ireland, for linens, a portion of the order being de- stlined for robes for Her Royal Highness, and frocks fo the Princess Mary. The Princess of Wales has always regarded the desirability of patronising home indus- tries as a serious matter, and it seldom Her Royal Highness dons fabrics, or trimmings that, have. not. been manufac- tured or fashioned at home, or in some of our possessions over the seas.
