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. Kindred Park.

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 ceremonv." Eleanor. Scbool Supt. Sun ej or.

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 gotten out.

Snien Return of a Snppsed M Man, IDEXTIFICATIOX OF COltVSE. 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 prevent drowning. 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 turned home. 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 dulged 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. Strawberries, Strawberries.
