is ont of the question.. But of all ac-

most delightful, and the most cheaply

- AYoung King's Sguirt Gun... |
The big-eyed little King of Spain is
very fond of his garden, and some time
ago one of the Queen's Austrian rela-
tives, who was going to pay a visit at
the Spanish court, bought a very nice
squirt-gun in Vienna for the young mon-
arch fo use in watering his plants. His
Majesty found it perfectly charming for
this purpose. It would send a stream
of water to almost any height or dis-
tance, and such a well-watered domain
as the royal\ parterre had scarcely been
known before.
Irdeed, there was zlogether too much
of it to confine it strictly to thé garden,
and the King soon began to make ex-
periments in other = directions. Fine
paintings, rich draperies and various
works of art were played upon at in-
tervals, to the great satisfaction of his
youthful Majesty; but soon he yearned
for more exciting subjects. There is no
great glory in attacking inanimate ob-
jects that cannot move nor ‘‘answer
back,” and Alphonso next cast specula-
tive eyes on his noble playmates and the
ladies who surrounded him. He also
cast the contents of his squirt-gun in the
same direction, and found himsef in pos-
session of more enjoyment than his short
life had yet afforded him. The criesand
scuffles of his victims, though muffled in’
their veneration for their sovereign,
added greatly to the zest of these per
formances, and it was a long time before
Queen Christina know of the in-door
waterings which gave her small son such
infinite pleasure. > x :
. But Alphonso especially loved a shin-
ing mark for his squirt-gun, and this led"
fo his exposure and a tutor to keep him
in better order. The Queen Regent gave
a grand garden party, at which celeb:
rities from far and near were present;
and the King, singling out a big Gen:
eral in a magnificent blue and gold uni
form, put’ himself behind a shrub and
shouted at him. The General approached
the spot, and Alphonso held up a hand-
ful of flowers to lure him on. The glit-
tering uniform came nearer, and when
close to the shrub behind which His
Majesty lurked in ambush, the point of
the Viennese squirt-gun appeared like a
Serpent among the leaves, drenching and
spotting the gorgeons suit which a mo-
ment before had been so imposing.
+ The dripping General backed out of
range as quickly as possible, and before
the mi.chievous boy could reload and
follow up his victory, his injured subject
‘had taken refuge under the protecting
eye of Queen Christina. ‘Then the merry
monarch tried to inveigle into his snare
ao less a person than Monsignor Del Val,
son of the Spanish ambassador at Vienna,
but the young prelate had seen the Gen:
eral’s plight, and was wary enough to
keep several persons between him and
