60HE OTHER GOSSIP ABOUT EOIALTI
JBT CABLE TO TBI PJ6PJLTCH.3
LONDOS, December 21. Copyright
A mysterious but apparently authoritative
announcement has just been made respect
ing the future wife of the Czarowitx. The
lady is described as a princess of one of the
reigning houses of "Western Europe, which
is the courtly way of describing the young
est daughter of the Grandduke of Hesse.
Princess Alice is very beautiful, and capti
vated the heir to the Russian throne last
"winter, when she and her father visited St.
The Czar does sot like the Dnke of Hesse,
who made a fool ot himself some years ago
by entering into a morganatic marriage with
a lovely but lowly widow. The affair upset
half the courts of Europe at the time, and
' nearly drove Queen Victoria mad, the Duke
havipe been the husband of her favorite
daughter, Alice. The Queen actually went
to Darmstadt to scold the Duke, and gen
erally behaved in a manner which set all
Europe laushms. The widow was finally
bought out, and a divorce was secretly pro
nounced by the subservient Hessian courts.
THE CZAR PLACATED.
The Czar's dislike, however, has appar
ently been overcome, for a priest will shortly
proceed to Darmstadt to prepare the Princess
for -admission to the orthodox church, and
the Czsrowitz is busy buying jewelry, and
generally preparing to set up housekeeping,.
The marriage, however, will not take place
before next summer, as the Princess is not 18
years old until June. She is poor, but her
rich English grandmother will help to dower
For some reason best known to himself,
the Prince of Wales has considered it neces
sary to inspire the Government newspapers
to announce that there is no foundation for
the report that his son Albert Victor has
been ordered home forthwith. That young
man, after remarkably good times in India
proper, arrived in Rangoon yesterday, and
in reply to an address of welcome, managed
to speak two sentences, all out of his own
head, to the effect that he had often heard
that the Burmese were among the happiest
and most prosperous of his grandmother's
Bnbjecls, and that he had no doubt he would
enjoy his visit to Bannah. When Prince
Albert makes np his mind to enjoy himself
he generally succeeds.
It is again reported that Prince Henry
ot Battenberg's continental trip was com
pulsory, he having quarreled with his wifef
mother-in-l&w and brother-in-law. Should
lie be absent from the latnily gathering at
Osborne House next week the report may be
taken as true.
Princess Louise, Marchioness of Lome, is
painting a portrait o her mother, which

The Austnan Emperor, ten princesof the
blood, and 19 bishops attended the funeral
of the Jate Cardinal Gangbauer, Archbishop
of Vienna, who, althongb one of the great
est princes of the chnrch, died no richer
than the average successful farmer. The
poor of Vienna will be poorer bv tens of
thousands of florins yearly. Prom the
Cardinal's funeral the Emperor went to his
palace, and there received a deputation of
humble Moravian peasants, who complained
that they had been unable to sell their

It would be a difficult matter to decide
which of Harper's periodicals to take for the
coming vear, if there were not an admirable
and really inexpensive solution of the prob
lem in sending a combined subscription for
all four. Each is independent and complete
in itself, and, if taken alone, seems to sat
isfy all one's desires for what a periodical
can bring; and yet no one of the four, when
they are taken together, seems to be super
flous. Harper's Magazine is international
in, scope, but American in enterprise; Har
per's Weekly has become indispensable as
the citizen's illustrated paper; Harper's
Bazar remains the leading fashion and home
journal, and Harper's Yonng People has
never been surpassed as an illustrated
weekly for boys and girls.
