- The reported rupture of nuptials has
eaused a sensation in oourt circles,. aa
the match was arranged by the queen
regen.t and king wlthjthe sanction. of the
pop. -It has been known for some time
that the young king woe not of robust
constitution, while his ' eccentricities
have caused International comment, but
it waa never before auppoeed that any
thing waa the matter more than youth

' 'Alfonso XIII Is the' posthumous eon
of .King -Alfonso XII, and waa- pro
claimed ftlng on the day -of his birth,
with his mother ae queen regent.
Though a delicate youth, the king has
developed Into quit a manly fellow and
is fond of outdoor exercises of all kinds.
Hs bears the fatigue of th many publlo
ceremonials with great ease and attends
to the many duties of etate without
complaint. He is an-intrepld horseback
rider and has been carefully schooled in
all branches of athletics with ths ulti
mate purpose of making him a sturdy
and robuat ' king. ' 8hould Alfonso die
his successor would be th 4-year-old
Don Alfonso, aon of th late . Infanta
Maria, who died last year.,
Th Prince a Patricia Is reported to
have been much oppoeed-to th royal
match on account of a love affair with
a' young officer. Strangely enough the
young king Is also In love with a young
maiden who la called Donna Mercedes
O'Donnell, th l-yar-old daughter of
the Duke , of Tetuan. : HI consent to
th proposed betrothal of Patricia was
only obtained after a stubborn sleg. In
