The marriage of the Princess fcoiiise of with the Earl of Fife will be celebrated on Satur- day, the 2tth instant, vand the btide and bride- groom will pass their honeymoon at Upper Sheen House, afterwards proceeding to Scotland. The bedding ia &xed to take place at Buckingham Palace Chapel, so that the metropolis will thus not be deprived of a pageant. I bear that the Earl of Fife will be raised a step or two higher in the peerage, and that he is to have a Dukedom given to him, one of the old historic titles immediately connected with the history ofoar Royal Family being revived in his favour. At the same time his future uncle of Battenberg frill be created Duke of Kent, and Prince Albert Victor, I tliiuk you will fiud, will before very many months are over be Duke of York. —— The Duchess of Portland has come very much to the fore on the occasion of the Shah festivities. At Westminster, on the day of his arrival, her Grace looked exceedingly handsome in a sage green gown, trimmed with little white sprigs, and a large Duchess of Devonshire hat. At the Opera she literally blazed with diamonds, and at Earl Cadogan's dinner party her ivory white costume and magnificent jewels attracted even the attention of the Prince of Wales, who escorted her to dinner, followed by his eldest son, having on his arm the Duchess of Manchester, and Prince George the Duchess of Abercorn, whilst the Grand Vizier took the Marchioness of Londonderry, the Aus- trian Ambassador the Marchioness of Salisbury, the Prime Minister Viscountess Cross, and the Duke of Portland Lady Granville. Mrs Henry Wylde gave the last of her pleasant musical parties on Wednesday evening in Hobart Place, where there was a great crowd of musical and fashionable people. The house was prettily decorated with flowers, and an excellent supper was provided. Among the many singers were Mdlle. Marie Titiens (a niece of the famous Madame Teresa), who has a very pretty voice, Madame Sinica, and Signor Carpi. A spirited rendering of a bright popular Spanish chorus by most of the company present, and of Finiculi Finicula gave a touch of gaiety to the proceedings which made everybody forget that only a few moments before Mr Henry Nevill had given a powerful recitation of Mrs Wylde's pathetic poem concerning a ceriain historical adventure in a snowstorm on Mount St. Bernard. Lady Jane Taylor had a most entertaining "at home" on Tuesday afterneon, when, amongst others present in her pleasant house in Eaton Place, I noticed the Duchess of Wellington. Lady Mar, Lady Galway, Lady Seymour, and i i: "Jimmy" Burke, looking supremely • levant -i Everybody was charmed with M. Thomas's sing- ing, especially of u La Mita Litigia," which ii« rendered to perfection. M. Richard, a new Parisian importation, gave a most amusing ren- dering of U En Ravenant de la Revue." Signor Ducci was at the piano, and played a new waltz of his own composition, called "Rubini," which I very cordially recommend as being tuneful and graceful, also a new waltz by Signor Albeniz, en- titled Cotilla," one of the most charming waltzes I have heard for a very long time. Mme. Carlotta Patti, the elder sister of Mme. Adelina Patti, whose death is just announced, was herselfa vocalist of wide and deserved reputation. She was born in Florence in 1840, being three years the senior of her sister Adelina, and was educated as a pianist, but soon abandoned the piano in favour of singing, A slight lameness, however, interfered with her prospects on the lyric stage, and in 1863 she came to England, where she was several seasons a great attraction at prome- nade and other concerts. She earned a large for- tune by her vocal performances. In 1884 she sustained a severe fall down a staircase, and frac- tured the leg which had hitherto been sound. Hopelessly crippled, she abandoned her public career and resided in Paris, where she gave lessons in music and declamation to a lucrative class of pupils. What has become of the blondes ?'" Well," said a lady the other day, "you see, it isn't fashionable any more. We used to all think that golden hair was beatiful and poetical, and all that, but there got to be so much of it, and so much of it that wasn't golden but I straw' colour, that all the beauty and poetry has fled. It's lots of trouble, too. Unless you are an adept in the art of blonding,' the colour will get on in streaks so that anyone can easily see what's the matter with it. But the worst of all is when one desires to quit the use of the blondine' and let the natural colour of the hair come back. It can't be done. It is very easy to culour the hair, but it is a very different thing to uncolour it. If you re- member, a few years ago when it was all the rage, my hair was as yellow as anybody's. Well, I'm getting it back to its old colour now, and you can rest assured I'll never meddle with it again-not if it is a thousand times the fashion." It is said that the other day a lady physician who had just been let loose on the public with her medical honours thick upon her, hungering for an opportunity of proving her skill, took it into her head that one of her girl friends was afflicted with a disease of the eyes. In vain the poor girl urged that she suffered no inconvenience from these organs, which seemed to be in their normal con- dition The fair leech insisted that there was something very far wrong, and prescribed accord- ingly. The medicine was not attended by any particular results; and although the patient still maintained that her eyes were as well as they had ever been, she was persuaded to guard against the first beginnings of evil and consult a famous oculist. The specialist examined the eyes most carefully, and solemnly pronounced that there was nothing the matter with them. But yow have been treated for aomethipg^ yau say," he added; "just let ine ha^e a lo&k ^jgt the prescription." The mfegical formula was produced. U Why, bless my soul! cried the oculist, this is a remedy for gout!" W.
ii ii, -.if 1i, i in i» A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS AT CARDIFF. An unusually large number of aoCtdettt cases were dealt with on Monday at the Cardiff Infir- mary. Thomas Delkins, aged 40, living at Lyndon- road, Gloucester, was working in Mr. Trayes's timer-yard, when he fell from a slight elevation, injuring his back to such an extent that it was found tieeessary to detain him.—George Fowler, aged 56, of 150, Upper Railway-street, was also detained through the bite of a horse. He was in a fiefdat'tlallišhen attempting to catch a horse, when another animal rushed at him from behind, knocked j him down, and bit him severely on the face. He was also badly bruised.—Elizabeth Owen, aged eight and living at 56, Cranbrook-street, Cathavs, was playing in the back yard, when she fell, fracturing her arm.-Augustus Mitchell, 14 years of age, and living at 30, Marion-street, also broke his arm whilst at work. Neither of the last-named oases were detained.-Rose Beach, a little girl, daughter of Mr. Beach, shoemaker, Wharton-street, was playing in Westgate-street, when she was knocked down by a pony and trap belonging to Mr. Beck- with, grocer, Barry. The wheel passed over her leg, bruising it rather severely. Her injuries, fortunately, were such that she was not detained at the infirmary, whither she was taken by Police- constable Snow.—Thomas Spraggs, a five year old lad, of Sophia-street, fared worse than this. He was knocked down at 12.30 by a cab in the Cow- bridge-road, and was so badly hurt that he had to be kept at the infirmary.
"ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD." A theft of a somewhat novel nature was per- petrated at Newport on Friday. On Thursday afternoon the foundation-stone of the new branch reading-room in Temple-street was laid by Mr Hoskins, and in a cavity beneath the stone was placed a bottle containing copies of the local news- papers and the current coins of the realm of the present year of grace. They ranged from the half- crown to the humble farthing, and were all dated 1889. Amongst the spectators of the ceremony was a hobbler named Thomas Collins, residing in Price- street, who saw the glitter of the bright copper coin and imagined, in his innocence, that they were nothing less than sterling gold. So on Friday, un- seen by the workmen, he stealthily removed a portion of the foundation, took out the bottle, and extracted the coins. Then he replaced the broken bottle in the cavity. On examining the coins he found that "all that glitters is not gold." The police got wind of the affair, and on Friday evening Collins was arrested. On being searched, the whole of the coins were found in his possession, In answer to the charge, he admitted taking the money, and stated that he intended having a bout of drinking.
FIRE AT THE CIVIL SERVICE STORES. Shortly after three o'clock on Saturday afternoon a fire broke out at the Civil Service Supply Stores, in Chandos-street, Strand. The building is a new one, and business was only commenced in it for the first time on the preceding Monday. The sub-base- ment, which it was intended to use as a store, was, in fact, not out of the carpenters' hands, and it was in this portion of the premises that the outbreak was discovered by one of the employes. The flames spread quickly amongst the shavings and deal boards, and when the members of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade stationed at Scotland Yard, who had been summoned to the spot by a special messenger, arrived, they found themselves face to face with a serious fire. Engines from other West-end stations rapidly arrived, Captain Shaw himself attending from the central station at Southwark. By half- past three copious streams of water were being dis- charged on the flames, but another hour elapsed before they were subdued, and on Saturday night firemen were still playing on the smouldering ruins. It was found upon inspection that the sub-basement and basement proper underneath it had been com- pletely gutted, whilst the ironmongery and china and glass departments, which were stocked with many valuable articles, were also seen to have suffered severely. Roughly speaking, the damage is estimated at £ 20,000, How the fire originated is not known.
PREACHER AND JOURNALIST. General Booth, besides being the preaching Friar of our generation, is a great journalist. The War Cry circulates 277,030 copies weekly, and the present circulation of the Young Soldier is 119,100 copies. The number of reels of paper, each about 4,014 yards long, requited to print one issue of both papers is 112J, working out something like 5,850 in a year: while the length of paper needed is 256J miles, or 13,338 miles in the yean The paper weighs 20 tons 6cwt. 2qrs. or 1,056 tons 18 cwt. in twelve months, whilst the amount in ink consumed in the same period is sixteen tons in weight. The army has secured the patent rights of a new machine which turns out 10,000 papers an hour, anq is capable of printing in six colours simultaneously.—Pall Mall Gazette,
The woman Winters, against whom a verdict of wilful murder w^s recently given by a Coroner's Jury, arising out of the deaths of several persons at Deptford by poisoning, has been too ill to appear at any of the public inquiries in the case. She died early on Sunday morning, at her residence Church- street, Deptford. A Correspondent states that asr some tilmt were working in the Harvey seam of the East Howie Colliery they came across a live toad. The writer adds-" The length of the body is three inches it has no mouth, and appears to live entirely upon the air, which it breathes freely. It can hop and crawl about." In the second day's proceedings of We "Royal Ulster Yacht Club's Regatta at Bangor, county Down, on Saturday. LGrd Dunraven's yacht Val- hjri'e. competed in the first race which was open to cutters, schooners, and yawls of 35 rating and up- wards. There were three other competitors, the race being won by Yarana. The Valkyrie came in before the last boat Deerhound. A large number of offers for service in Egypt have been received at the War Office from officers at home stations, <c. Many officers, both Cavalry and Infantry, have also intimated their readines to join the Staff of the native Egyptian Army, but though the names of these have been 'noted for service, if needed, few, if any will be required at present, there being already as many as sixty British officers attached to the Egyptian Army. The Prince of Wales has consented to lay the memorial-stone of the new building of the Samaritan Free Hospital. The ceremony will take place on the 24th inst., and the Princess of Wales will receive purses for the Building Fund. The Prince of Wales will be present at the St. Bartholomew's Hospital banquet on the 24th inst. The Shire line steamer Glamorganshire arrived in London from Hankow on Monday morning with 3,800,000 pounds of new season's teas, being the second arrival this season. A marriage is announced to have taken place in London between Viscount Dunlo, eldest son of the Earl of Clancarty, and Miss Belle Bilton, a well- known music-hall artiste. The Seamen's Hospital Society are about erecting a new branch hospital at the Royal Victoria and Albert Docks, London, and on Monday Prince George of Wales laid the foundation stone. The adjourned cases against Canon Doyle, Father Browne, and others came before the Crimes Act Court at Arthurstown on Monday. Nine persons who were last week committed for contempt of court were again brought up, but were allowed out until the 5th of August, to which date the hearing of all the charges was adjourned. The witnesses declare they will not take the oath, no matter what the consequences are. A well-known Manchester solicitor, Colonel W. A. Lynde, brought an action at Manchester on Monday to recover from the Cheshire Lines Com- mittee damages for personal injuries received in a railway collision. Plaintiff was incapacitated from conducting his business, and medical men said it will be three or lour years before he could properly recover. Hewasawardeddamagesoff3,750. An Englishman is endeavouring to engage a band of Cossacks from South Russia with a view to their visiting the various capitals of Europe, and per- forming the "dhigitoffka" and other feats of horse- manship in which the Cossacks excel. The name of the bustle is fought very shy by all the writers told off to describe fashionable function. The Daily News representative at the garden party at Marlborough Honse on Thursday week in grace- ful fashion evades the forbidden word, speaking of the total disappearance of the cushion worn at the back of the waist." The Board of Trade have awarded a piece of plate to Mr B. H. Danielssen, master 6f the German ship Setos, in recognition of his humanity and kindness to the shipwrecked crew and passengers of the British steam ship Cotopaxi, ot Liverpool, which stranded in or near Smyth's Channel (Gulf of Trinidad) on or about the 15th April last. The Earl and Countess of Lathom have sustained a severe bereavement by the death of their third son, the Hon. Randle Arthur Bootle-Wilbraham, which took place, on the 11th inst., at Chateau de Resenlieu, Normandy. He was a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, and was twenty-one years of age. Prince Albert Victor, who is to open the new Hospital at Harrogate on Thursday, will spend the previous night at Swarcliffe Hall, the residence of Captain Greenwood. At the luncheon, after the ceremony on Thursday, the guests to meet his Royal Highness will include the Mayors of the boroughs and cities of the West Riding. Count Hatzfeldt, the German Ambassador, will board the Royal German Yacht Hohcnzollem off Dover on the evening of the 1st of August, when the German Squadron will come to anchor in Dover Bay. Early on the following morning the ships will weigh anchor and proceed to Cowes. The Emperor who will not visit London during his visit except incognito, will remain the guest of the Queen until August 7, at Osborne, when he will pay a visit to Aldershot, to witness a review. Immediately after that he will return to Germany.
THE EIFFEL TOWER MANIA RAGING.—The enthusiasm of some of those persons who ascend Eiffel's Tower knows no bounds. According to the correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, they get their hats, cuffs or shirts, and pocket handkerchiefs stamped with the magic words "third platform." A lady went so far as to have the phrase printed on her petticoat; and it is a lucky thing for the Exhibition authorities that their champion monument is made of iron for had it been a mere wooden edifice people would have hacked and hewn at it for relics until it dropped to pieces. As to M. Eiffel, he has become the veritable hero of the hour. The other day an enthusiast was discovered whittling away at some wooden palings, outside the constructor's house, and, when asked what he was about, replied that he wanted some "Eiffel souvenirs" to take home to his friends in the provinces. When M. Eiffel appears in the flesh on the platform of his tower he is surrounded by the autograph demons who holds out albums to him, and, with the most consummate aplomb, ask him for not one but two or three signatures. It is probable that among these plagues who carry away splinters, certificates of having ascended the tower, and autographs, there are some enterprising, and not at all enthusiastic, persons who will sell their souvenirs at a magnificent profit. One industriel in Panamas already set up a manufactory for the pre- paration of sham medals and certificats d'ascension.

TRAGIC TERMINATION OF A NEWPORT OUTING. On Saturday the workmen employed at the foundry of Mr W. A. Baker, ironmonger, Com- mercial-street, Newport, had their annual outing, the place selected being Penarth, whither they pro- ceeded in breaks. On the return journey the fore- man of the foundry, John Lovell, living at 10, St. Edward-street, Baneswell, Newport, occupied a seat on the box by the side of the driver. On reaching St. Mellon's, Lovell, who had been con- versing with the driver, asked the name of the village, and a moment or two afterwards suddenly fell back into the break where other workmen were sitting. The vehicle was stopped, and restoratives, obtained from a roadside inn near, were applied, but the unfortunate man never recovered conscious- ness, or shqwed any sign of life. It is supposed that death was due to heart disease, for which de- ceased had sought medical aid. His doctor told him to avoid excitement of every kind, as it might carry him off at any moment. The body was brought on to Newport in the break, and removed into his late residence. Deceased, who was a middle-aged man and much respected, leaves a widow and several children.
