WHAT "THE WORLD" SAYS. One of the King's pages at the Coronation will be the young son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bourke; while another that is likely to be chosen is the only son of Lord and Lady Churchill. Lord Cholmondeley, as holding the office of Lord Great Chamberlain, will have his son, Lord George Cholmondeley, in attendance. The Duchess of Fife has chosen the son of Sir AlTan and Lady Mackenzie; Lord Waldegrave has invited a son of Lord St. Germans to attend on him; and Lord Erroll will be attended by the youthful son of Major and Lady Jane Seymour Combe. All the pages will wear costumes de- signed in the "colours" of those on whom they I are to attend. Lord and Lady Chesham, who will reside at Latimer House, Bucks, during the summer, will pay frequent visits to town during June and July, staying at Thomas's Hotel, Berkeley Square. Lord and Lady Ormonde are passing Whitsun- tide at Kilkenny Castle, where their house party includes Sir Reginald and Lady Beatrice Pole- Carew and Lady Constance Butler. Major-General Hallam Parr's command of the North-Western District is to be for three years. As soon as the Northern Army Corps is formed the Chester district will become a divisional com- mand, but this will not interfere with his posi- tion. General Haliam Parr took over temporary command of the South-Eastern District at the end of 1899, when Sir Leslie Rundle was called to the Horse Guards as Deputy Adjutant- General. He discharged the duties with marked abiticy. and it was as a recognition of the valuable services he rendered during the emergency of the war that he was offered the new command, a pleasant but at the same time a rather expensive one. The King's dinner to the poor will be held simultaneously in all the London boroughs on the afternoon of Saturday, July 5th, and it is stated that their Majesties may probably pay a visit to two or three districts to witness the festivities. But no selection of districts has yet been made, and though there will no doubt be keen competition among the boroughs for the honour of a visit from the King and Queen, there will he no relaxation anywhere of the efforts to make the scheme a brilliant success. Some handsome gifts in supplement to the King's bounty have been promised, such as beer, tobacco, cigarettes, and chocolate, and with these and the King's cnp and the invitation cards the guests will have a good time.
