THE PRINCESS OF WALES
How She Appeal's in Her Yachting Gown.
LiOkdok, May Gth. '90.
Permit me to present to you to-tlay
"Mesdames" bor Royal Highness the
Princess oE Wales as she appoars in a
recent photograph, for which aho sat
in her newest Red fern yachting gown.
It is of white Ialo of Wight serge, the
striped portions of the waist and
sleoves being formed by rows of dark
blue Hercnies braid, every row of
which is finished by a gilt auchor
button, a3 though it were a striped
vest buttoned on to the bodice. A
black or dark blue kerchief of silk is
passed carelessly about the neck and
its ends are slipped through an onyx
ring, and then pinned low ou the
breast with a white enamel burgee.
At tho throat she wears the flag
brooch of the Royal Yacht Squadron
of which Club the Prince has been
for many years the commodore.
Arrayed in such a costume as this,
of which she generally orders a half
dozen or more at a time from her fa
vorite tailor, "Redfern," tho Princess
goes down to Cowes a short time be
fore tho Goodwood races, and there
spends on board the royal yacht, Os
borne, some two months of idyllic,
outdoor life under blue skies and
warm sunbeams, and invigorated by
the fresh salt breezes which blow
from Spithead and Cowes Roads.
"Can the visitors of Cowes get a
glimpse of the Royal party," I asked
Redfern the other day.
If you are seeking an investment whereby you can double and treble your money in a short time, do
not fail to buy in Kindred Park. Call early, examine this Property and buy a few lots before the prices
advance. Lots at present are only $125 and $150. Terms: Half cash, and balance in three months.
"Oh es, easily. Tlyj yacht is
moored about a half mile oil theshoro
and any one cau take a boat and row
around it. Why. I was rowing about
one day, and I saw the Prince in his
shirt sleoves vigorously laboring with
two hair brushes, at his morning toi
let, just like any conntry squire."
"Doesn't he have a valet on his
yacht?'' "Oh, of course, but he was
probably occupied in taking the
Princess's dogs ashore for their daily
scamper. She has three a white
Pomeranian, a fino collie, and a queer
Russian creature given her by her
sister, the Empress, and every day
they are rowed ashore by a crew of
man-of-war's men, to give them a run
and a frolic."
And the Princess is as simple and
nu affected as possible, and amuses
herself with as little ostentation as
any of her well-bred snbjects would
do. She often takes a small Una,
what yon would call a catboat over
here, and sails abont by tho hour,
quite alone. When her children
wero younger, the young Princes
were taught to row and to fish, and
there was a large floating bath for
them and their sisters, placed just
opposito Osborne House. The weeks
spent thero each summer are prob
ably almost the pleasantest part of
the year to the Princess, as being so
healthful, and so free from care and

AX IMPORTANT CAPTURE.
Opium Siuncgleis Arrested at Seattle
With SGC0 Worth of the Dm-.
Seatti,!:, May 31. An important
capture was made by Jjieutenant Wil-
lant at an early Hour tins morning
that may lead to the capture ot the
bold gang of smugglers that have
been operating on Pnget sound for
some tune past.
Friday night United States custom
iustwetor Holflen received word from
Yictoria that George Dickson had left
that city for Tacorna, having in his
liossesMon a large quantity of opium.
Lnspcctor Holden at ouce notified
Lieutenant Willard to look out for the
man in case he should land hero, and
when the Olympian arrived he lward
rd her and started, for Tacoma.
It seems, however, that Dickson be
came aware that officers wero on his
track, and landed at Seattle. Lieu ten
suit Willard was wtitching for him,
but having only a meagro desoription
he nearly missed him. The lieutenant
saw a man just as lie was leaving the
wharf, who appeared to be heavily
loaded down with packages, and fol
lowed him. Not being a United
States officer, he had no authority to
search him for opium. He arrested
Dickson, however, on suspicion of hav
ing stolen the goods in his possession,
took him to headquarters and searched
him. He was fonnd to be fairly loaded
down with opium. There was thirty
pounds of the stuff in quarter-tael
boxes on his person. Dickson was
locked up and the opium turned over
to inspector Holden on his return from
Tacoma this morning.
Dickson will come up for a pre
liminary examination before United
States Commissioner Emery this after
noon. Dickson has been on the
Sound some time, and Inspector
Holden bays he ha3 been watching his
movements, although ho has not been
able up to the present time to catch
him at any crooked work.
Opium costs in Victoria S8 per
ponnd. There is a duty of 10 per
pound and it retails in this city at S22
per pound. This would make S660
worth of opium which Dickson had
concealed in his clothing when ho was
arrested. Oregonian Special.
An ingenious machine will soon be
introduced on passenger cars which is
shaped like a Hammond type writer,
oval on one side and flat on the other,
and is operated like the type writer.
The object of this novel instrument is
to make it impossible for the conduc
tor to "knock down" fares. Tho pas
senger presents his ticket to the con
ductor, who reads the name on it and
puts it in tho machine, at the same
time punching the letters of the name
on tho ticket. There is a bright piece
of steel at which the passenger looks
as tho conductor writes his name.
"When the conductor has finished
punching a small peg, a bell rings
and a small piece of gutta percha shuts
oyer the steel plate. In a few seconds
the work is done and a perfect photo
graph of the passenger is taken, tho
amonnt of the ticket registered on tho
back, and the name of the passenger
printed above the amonnt. The whole
thing can be done in three seconds
and is the most complete thing yet

Raleigh, N. C, May 27. Twelve
months ago James Dillon, a well-
known citizen of Tyrrell county, "in
sured his life for 4,000 in the Connetti-
cut Mutual Life Insurance Company.
Some time after he fell from a boat,
feigned inability to swim and had to
he pulled out of the Alligator river to
The next day he overturned his boat
half a mile from shore and yelled
loudly for a man a quarter of a mile
away. When the man responded Dil
lon secretly swam ashore and could
not be seen. The man whoso assis
tance he had asked supposed that he
was drowned and was perfectly wil
ling to swear to it
Notice of Dillon's death was sent to
the company, which refused to pay the
insurance. Action was brought by
Dillon's wife, and the case stood for
trial at court last week, the widow
alleging that he was drowned. Ten
days ago a body was found near the
placo where he had been seen to sink
in the water. The body was identified
by twenty-five persons as that of Dil
lon. At court, counsel for the wife
took a non-suit, because before the
body had been found the evidence of
death and identification was favorable
to the company, who wrote that they
would do as advised by their attorney
in the comity.
There is no doubt that the company
would have paid tho money, but last
Friday, to the surprise of every one.
Dillon himself returned safe and
sound to Columbia. Hearing of the
non-suit ho thought it put an end to
his claim and that there was no hope
of collecting the money, and so ho re
His statement is most remarkable.
He says that he swam ashore the day
ho overturned the boat. He put bis
hat in the boat and left the craft full
of water. He determined to hide in
the woods so that his wife could get
the insurance money. He kept in the
great swamps for five months, when
he found the body of a dead man float
ing in the Alligator river. He removed
the hair from the head so as to make
it bald, and taking his own hair and
whiskers, put them in the decom
posing flesh of the corpse. He knooked
out two of tho front teeth of the dead
man, and removing the clothing from
the corpse, dressed it in the clothes he
had worn on tho day of his disappear
ance. At night ho conveyed the body
to tho place where ho was supposed to
have been drowned. It was one of the
most desolate, barren wastes in the
lowlands of eastern North Carolina,
pven miles from any habitation.
The news ot hi3 return created much
excitement, and talk of lynching and
tar and feathering were freely in
Prince Eitel Fritz.
Among the stories of the German
emperors domestic life, is one about
his second son. Prince Eitel Fritz.
The emperor is exceedingly strict
about his son's behavior at the table.
The other day little Prince Eitel Fritz,
using hi3 fingers instead of his knife
and forkj was corrected by his father
several times to no purpose. At last
the emperor's patience was exhausted,
and he said: "Children who'eat with
their fingers are like little dogs
that hold their food with their paws.
If you use your fingers again you
must go under the table the
proper place for little dogs." The
little prince did his best not to forget
tliis tune, and used bis knife and fork
like a man; but all at once he 1 forgot
again and began using his fingers.
"March tinder the table," said his
father. Prince Eitel Fritz crept under
the table as bidden. After a little
while the Emperor, thinking the
prince very quiet, lifted up the table
cloth and peeped underneath. There
sat little Prince Eitel Fritz undressed.
His father asked him what he meant
by undressing himself. The child
answered: "Little dogs don't wear
clothes; they only have skin.
