Horal Hotel Keepers.
The king of Wurttembt-rg may Le re
garded as a hotel kocpor as well aa a
monarch. This bus long been a tradi
tion in bia family, but not until lately
was it discovered by the rulers of tho
beautiful little German kingdom bow
profitable innkeoping can become. When
Peter the Great was traveling incognito
through Kuropo, he refused to stop any
where but at an inn. To clroumveut
this wbira the then king of Wurttem
borg put a tavern sign outvide one of
the royal palaoes and, dressed as an
innkeeper, himself welcomed the czar.
Tbia royal periouuge's descendant now
own two large hotels, from which he
is aid to derive a revenue equaling
$50,000 a year.
A murderer in Servia must be execut
ed on the very spot where he committed
bis orime. There a pit is dug, he stands
in it blindfold, and a firing party shoots
bim. If be is then still alive, a revolver
ii beld to his head to AdIhIi him, and
finally the earth is shoveled in upon bis
body. There seems a certain poetio jus
tioe abont this procedure.
