THE QUEEN OF EOLLAND. I OVERSHADOWED BY SORROW. THE LAST OF THE ROYAL LINE. The public will remember what an impres- sion the bright, bonny, youthful face of Holland's Queen made upon all who attended the festivities held a few years ago in coiin.ection with her inauguration as Queen, tier betrothal and marriage. To-day, says the "Morning Leader," those who knew her then would scarcely recognise the once happy, hopeful girl Queen. There is a shadow over the face, the wonteJ brightness in the eye has disappeared, and a thoughtful, weary expression has taken its place. This was particularly noticed by the British officers of the fleet at Ymuiden who met her a few days ago at Loo. So far she has suffered the bitterest dis- appointment that woman can endure, for Holland has no heir. The whole country, which clings to Wilhelmina as the last of her race, in whom' all their hopes are centred, joins in her disappointment. In the past three years she has aged fifteen, and the Court fboth at The Hague and at Loo is doomed to melancholy, for the shadow is over all. It seems but a few years ago that the palace at The Hague rang with the laughter of the children who came to play with the child Queen. Now all is changed, and the Queen hides her sorrow as many months of the year as she can at Loo.
