FIRST CARDINAL GOLFER.—A pen portrait of Cardinal Merry del Val, the Pope's Secretary of State, is given in "Munsey's Magazine." The cardinal, says Mr. E. A. Powell, is an in- defatigable worker, a frugal liver, a man of strong likes and dislikes, with a hot Latin temper that is often in evidence, but always under control. Tall and slim of figure, grace- ful of motion, showing the highest type of the Andalusian in every feature, his face when in repose is little more than a mask, so utterly de- void is it of all feeling and expression. But when a smile gives life to his sphinx-like coun- tenance, then, indeed, all the marvellous fasci- nation which this remarkable man can exercise becomes apparent. When a youth he was very fond of pranks, and was nicknamed by his schoolfellows "Merry Devil." He is the first Cardinal to indulge'in golf, a game which he plays twice weekly over a private course in the grounds of the Villa Doria-Pamphili.
