rntlU Hohenzollerns are represented on this 1

haired mnn, brilliantly educated a gentleman ,

dally In New York city. He Is the son of-
Kmhftrnr Vter0Ttt. u-lin rli?Mld for It toW'J
mouths, tho mother being a gardener's daugh-
ter. According to the story, and tho man
never speaks of his antecedents, the future
Emperor met the girl, felt In love, but did not
inurry her. And their son came to this coun
try to fight tho bottle of life for himself. For
years ho has worked on, disdaining the nld
offered by his half-bi other, the Kaiser.
He Is not the only nenr-sclon of royalty, for
somewhere In this world, probably In their old
home in London, live tho two daughters of ij
Napoleon HI the love Issue of the Emperor
nnd an English governess.
NAPOLEON was a queer mixture of the
noble mid tho common. Ordinary clay In
inoit of his conceptions, he yet roso to true
majesty In others. Orslnl had attempted his
life many had died In the attack on the French
ruler, nnd Orslnl hnd been sentenced to death.
Tho day nfter his death Napoleon sent Orsl
nl'i two young daughters to school In Ehgland
and paid for their maintenance nnd education
out of his private purse.
WHAT has become of tho splendid New
foundland dog of other days? Intelll- '
gent, brave, handsome, it seems to have dls- i
appeared from the haunts of men. Only tho ,
other day, Alan Cunningham, well-known In
the Journalistic world, returned from New
foundland, bringing with him a really beauti
ful puppy of that breed. ltB silky hair, almost
human eyes und evidence of intelligence make
it an exceptionally lovable pet, and Mr. Cun
ningham is perchance Justly proud of his pos
session, MISS GRACE GRAY, who takes tho public
Into her confidence where tho fortunes
of the Little Theatre are concerned, being Its
publicity representative which sounds better
than press agent has made the Interesting
announcement that Mrs. Jay's enterprise hns
reached the self-supporting stage.
It Is Mra. Jay's present intention to continue
the production of standard plays until after tho
new year, when slio will launch upon the haz
ardous enterprise of producing new plays by
American authors. Just now, she and Miss
tiruy are using their waking moments in read
ing manuscripts hundreds of them literally.
The pile Is being reduced gradually, nnd al
ready they believe that they havo found tvvo
or three worthy of production.
TUB news that John D. Rockefeller, grown
tired of the beauties of his Pocantlco Hllla
eatate. Is yearning to return to Cleveland pro
vided that ho can come to an agreement with
the assessors about that 12,000,000 tux, call. K
attention to a couplo of other rich men who
seldom, if ever, get Into the news. One of these
Is ZenJIro Tasuda, of Toklo, Japan, worth $50,
000.000. Born tho son of a gardener, Zenjldo
worked nt copying book3 at 1 cent a day for
seven years that ho might get a primary edu
r.illon. For another seven years" ho was an
'apprentice In 11 toy shop. Then he went Into r
tho grocery business, lending money between I
meals. Now he Is a banker and considered I
Japan's greatest financier.
Tho other unknown is J. B. Robinson, of J
South Africa. In days gone by wondrous talcs L
were woven about tho gold and diamond kings U
of South Africa, and some were even true, ft
Alfred Bcic must have made between three j
und four hundred million dollars In promoting' I
mining companies. Cecil Rhodes accumulated
millions; Barney Barnato lost them; and J. B.
Robinson made his hundreds of millions In cat- J
tie and sheep raising, building operations and
only Incidentally In mining ventures. As a j
matter of fact, he Is probably the richest man
in the Cape of Good Hope, for cows and steers
nnd sheep do not deteriorate because a. railroad
passes a dividend.
Y ALL tho South African millionaires,
W Barnato was tho most picturesque. Born 1
In the Whltechapel district of London, his real 1
name was Barney Isaacs. With a brother hai
garnered stray coins on the sidewalks of hlsl
native heath by amusing the Idlers with ncru
batic feats and by contorting his body Into
bowknots. Then, when diamonds had beenv
discovered near the Vaal River, he went to
South Africa, luking up his residence In Ktm
berley. He bought and sold diamonds his ene
