Queen Victoria must have been impressed with similar thoughts. '"Is it a fine boy?"' was her tele gram dated January 28, 1859, twentyfour hours after the eldest son of Prince and Princess Frederick William had seen the light. It was not an ordinary primiparous case, besides, "For our good king was as crazy as a .warsh hare" says a competent contemporary. "Let u* return to our muttons." Frederick William IV., Ludwig II.. King of Buvaria., king Otto of Bavaria, What part was played by atavism ? Ask yourselves -if you know anything. The Kaisers left arm hugs closely to his body, allowing the hand, which is not desmall as a child's to rest against his waist, or upon his hip if on horseback. I'he Kaiser wants a convenii lit point de reste for his poor left hand, and arm graces the list of Royal personj which is about six inches ages in Europe.

But on the last day of January 1859 it was noticed that the Prince could not move his arm, an examination of the limb disclosed that the elbow-joint was dislocated. In a healthy child, ordinarily the congenital defect could be easily remedied, but in the case of Prince William the surrounding soft parts were so injured and the muscles in such a condition, that no one dared attempt to set the elbow. The present condition of the Emperor's arm has been attributed to a mistake made by those officiating at the accouchement, but the Alte Fraulein says thafr, that is "a lie agreeable to the Emperor and to his mother, and her opinion is that" the child's forearm was not properly made up by Nature, as, indeed, his whole left side is weak from the mighty unwilling to own his secret reason for the innovation sought must go without his belt. Divine omnipotence has Somehow been omitted from the category of his attributes in this little particular. The lingers of the h-ft hand are moveable, for although the head of the radius does not articulate properly with the condvlesof the luiinerus, the limb is not inert altogether. Major von Xormann asserted that on one occasion the Kaiser clutched Ins sword with his left hand, and when angry he has frequently done so. But while lie can take hold of an article, he cannot lift it. He holds the reins in his left hand when rid ing, but he is powerless to guide or direct the horse except with his right hand or his knees. But what the Kaiser has lost from his left arm and hand he has had made up to him in his right. It is massive and ugly in appearance, ugly too, when shaking hands. He has a mightygrip, and that he is proud of his personal strength is evident from the fact that he promptly adopted the simile several years ago when a correspondent liken ed his fist to the "terrible right" of John L. Sullivan the then champion of the ring. And the ugliness of his hand may account for his insane ravings about women's beautiful hands, which he never forgets whence once seen,a circumstance which keeps the Kaiserin in a turmoil of jealous rage. The Kaiser's dread of the ills that flesh is heir to, \ a an open secret at the Court of Berlin, and he takes no chances of incurring infection. led .from the W -. ^nfi'if*p er Maible l'ajace l.Mh ,8S8^ that tlw ,n ce of SehofirberK hiid died of diphtheria in a villa at the N'euer Garten a few hours before. "Diplhena ? cried VYilht-hn, turning a sh;ul>paler than Ins wont in the mo n ng— "there seems to be Something unhealthy in die air hereabouts. Let the chamberlain on duty be informed that my dungs must be packed and sent lo Berlin at once." And ihai very dav, his stiite pa peis were dated 'Sch|os, Berlin." It will be Interesting to those [who know not, and know that they know not, to know now, that the Kaiser is not as tall as he looks in the thousand and one likeness of him; ilie public is doubtful of his stature, and even close obs< rvers are apt to be deceived. In the palace his "up-standing" is never openly discussed, but the Kaiserin told Prince Kitel hit/, that bis father measured five r< el eight inches. l'ive ft five, 01 six indies is the highest stature that Count Mollke win. luia a very sure eve in such matters gives him. He holds himself as straight as an arrow, and his uniforms are fashioned to rum ct traces of tmbonpoint that develop from tune to time in Spite of rigid bodil) exercise incessantly kept up. His helmet terminating in a point, which he is seldom seen without, give* the Appear• a nee ol a gi 1 a ter height than he possesses, lie is never sure of his legs the left one being weak, and lie is constantly under die awful strain or: "Attention"! He owns a set of uniforms for each of the three hundred and odd I'lUksian Regiments horses. foot and artillery besides the ones appurtenant to the Bavarian, Wurtenberg and Saxony contingents to say nothing of the Austrian, English, Russian, Roumanian, Spanish, Turkuhfit Swedish Armies into which his name is enrolled as colonel, general or held marshal. And. Daval uniforms!, for he is lord of the sea in Germany, Great Britain, Russia and Sweden. With the knowledge of all these and all the innumerable and expensive accessories—a single pair of shoulder knots often costs more than the uniform itself— and all these must be on hand and reads for use at any given lime, as bright and good as a new pin, do you begin to understand why the Emperor of Germany is forever unable to make both ends meet with an income of sixteen million marks a year? What will he do when "THIS" is all over? How will he get them? The Emperor of Germany, "exalted Emperor, Puissant King and Master, Illustrious Brother, Our sublime mighty, beloved Kaiser, King and Lord for all limes, for ever and ever" in the maudlin sycophantry of Ins brother Prince Henry, is decidedly unique in his personality. He is best described by the mot from Tom Paiae's "Age of Reason" as "One step from the sublime to the ridiculous." Paul of Russia was called a madman for running a mile to cane a soldier, and after chasing Paul fashion, from the parade at Berlin in 1897, to wrangle with a servant, he the Kaiser sat down to dedicate a number of Bibles for the new Berlin garison church, inscribing them as follows : "I will walk among you and will be your God and ye shall be my people,""Yeshall walk in all the ways which I have 1 3 ^* 1 •

Pay Them in Their Own Coin
A Vigorous Plea for Utilizing the Fighting Forces of the Empire-
By A. G. HALES.
THE British nation is gett-
ing very weary of the
growling and squealing
of its political leaders,
and the demand of the nation
n fight." Damn the drink ques-
tion! The politician who says
the British workmen are a set of
drunken wastrels is not telling
the truth; that cry is a red-herr-
ing drawn across the trail of the
times ; it will catch the tea-and
toast votes at the next General
Election, and it diverts atten-
tion from ministerial ineptitude I treating many
There are some drunken shirkers
among the workers; so there are
amongst every other class, from
judges to journalists. Even in
Wales, that home of the spot
less and pure, they don't all
wear haloes. Our enemies drink
more alcohol, man for man,
than any nation under heaven,
and they are notduiupffen hadly
All the world knows of it ; all
the world expect our "milk
a n d-m u d" wirepullers be-
hind the Government, is aware
that if we hope to win this war
we have to fight our foe as he
fights us. It is as much use
wasting chivalry on the Ger-
mans as putting a chaplet of
roses on a iiog.

in this campaign of carnage,
from their point of viewsimp
ly because their leaders are con-
centrating on war. They have
closed up their ranks, and we
must do the same, or.go under.
We must stop whimpering ovit
Germany's use of poisonous
gases in the field, and prepare to
fight them as they fight us. It's
the only wav todeal with this
race of white barbarians. John
Bull told the nations many
weeks ago that Germany in-
tended to supplement lead and
steel by products from their
chemical laboratories, and this
poison gas of theirs is the least
of the things they will use when
they feel the pinch of warand
we must prepare for their me*
thodi. When you want to kill
a rattlesnake, \ou don't push
Sugar down its throat with your
thumb. The wind will not al-
ways blow from German tren
dies towards our lines, and
when it changes we should send
them back what they have sent
us, or something like it. Surely
British chemists are not devoid
of intelligence Surely they can
supply us with something as
deadly as the gases our enemies
have used. War is war, and
we must light a rutblesj enemy
ruthlessly, no matter what the
"snufflebuster" element in the
nation may say I wonder if
the'"mock chivalrous" party ii
Britain are aware that if tin
wind had held good for foui
days when enemy started to as
phvxiate our troops and the
gallant Frenchmen, Germany's
advance guard would have been
so close to Calais that ultimate
occupation would have been al
most assured. Fortunately for
us, the wind changed, and we
have retaken som* of the lost
ground. Buc why waste time
talking of Germanic savagery ?
We know from unimpeach-
able sources thai the enemy is
of our officers
who are prisoners as if they
were criminals ol the worst sort,
yet our milk -and-mud patriots
cry out, "Be cnivalrous to Ger-
man prisoners !" Is not it time
we were fair to our own?ad
we can only be fair to our own
by showing the Kaiser that we
are not afraid to retaliate; at
present he and his think we are

The following soliloquy was

taught the use of the bayonet in
lieu of his native assegai, and
then I for one would like to set
the l'russian brigade that would
stand up against a Zulu
if led by trained British officers
who would know how to pick
and choose the right moment
for an attack. Their towering
crowded hour may yet come;
but in the meantime we may
perhaps be allowed the growl
of those enforced to live the
quiet life. Our commander re-
marked to me the other day

when they were armed only
with stabbing assegais. What
they would do with rifle and
bayonet one can easily imagine.
And The Daredevil Basutos?
As the Zulus are, so are the
Basutos, the inhabitants of the
Switzerland of A f ri cabig,
strong, active, game men, all of
them warriors by breeding and
by Instinct. Even the women
are trained fighters, and, for

who wiU not -want-to drag us
from our own fireside to partake
of distractions whose allure,
ments we have now outgrown.
One thing, however, which
brings a little mild excitement
at quite frequent intervals
Coaling Ship. In peace time
we used to look upon this as
something of a severe strain, and
grumbled if it occurred as often
as once a month. But now !
Why, the men look on it as a
rather amusing form of athle-
tics, a pleasant game to break
the monotony, and if they were
deprived of it for a whole month
they would probably have a
fearful moan !
meanwhile have got into "coal
ing-rig"for we are our own
coolies, and do not have the as-
sistance of "outside labour."
The bluejacket loves nothing so
much as to get into some cos-
tume different from his ordinary
every-day one, and as he is al-
lowed to wear what he likes for
coaling, you see something like
an impromptu fancy-dress
party; one man has an old foot-
ball jersey of stripes and colours,
another sports a tattered khaki
tunic, the gift of some soldier
chum, while another is happy
in the possession of a solar topee

What About The Zulu.
We claim to be a bull dog
breed when we are roused. But
there is more of the bull frog
than the bull dog about a very
powerful section in our midst.
They are always croaking
about our vices. I oftea won-
der if wie would not be a man-
lier breed if we had a few more
open vices and a lot less cant.
They love to talk of Empire,
ytare never willing that we
should draw upon the rescour-
ces of Empire, in time of stress.
Would Germany not do so if
die had an Empire- to draw up

come with joy if Britain asked
them to come. They all know
the native military formations,
which are not unlike the old
Roman phalanx which itself is
not so very dissimilar from that
of present day Prussian infantry
movements. They all under-
stand that they must obey the
word of command, and are in-
telligent beyond belief in regard
to military matters. Why not

Africa at this present moment,
in the Zulu and Basuto nations,
an army of men who would
leap with joy if asked to cross
the sea and fight for us. They
are as much a part of our Em-
pire as the men of Caniberwell.
Why should we not draw upon
them, and put them in the fight-
fend the Empire? Must the white
man bear all the burden ? If
the black man is to share in the
benefits of Empire, let him carry

down to them in a constant

the bags into the air, and are
swung oyer and lowered or*,the

sizes a bag, tilts it dexterously
on to his trolley, and runs away
with it along the deck to an

tips the coal put so that it falls
down into trie bunker below,
where stokers are awaiting to
trim itthat is, build it up
cleverly,so that it occupies the
smallest possible space. There
is a great art in trimming. Of-
ficers as well as men take part
in the coaling, and frequently
those officers who do not happen
to have any appointed share in
the work will handle a trolley
and work with the men. Very
often the band "buck things up
a bit" by playing popular airs
from the top of a turret or some
such spot where they are not in
the way. And what a rate they
do work at! For 6oo men at
work 300 tons an hour is a re-
cord often attained. This means
that every man must do the
equivalent of handling com-
pletely half a ton from the hold
of the collier to its stackedup
resting-place in the bunker, in

THE HORRORS OF WAR.
What do you know of
them ? What do 1 know of
them ? Nothing, absolutely
nothing. What does the su
perintendant of the St. Al-
ban's Railway near London
know ?
A correspondent writes: "1
know thesuperintendant and
he told me that the tale
which he could tell would
freeze the blood of a score of
seasoned veterans, causing
that untold tale to fade into
insignificance. He very lately
sent fifty soldiers from the
front to the Hospital for the
insane, poor broken downs
in mind and body, men of
once good phisique as could
be seen from the. remnant en-
trusted to his care. "But
strong men as they once were,
they are now mere wrecks.
The sight of them is enough
to wring tears of blood from
an adamantine block. I do
not think that I could bear
many more such sights ; my
own intellect would give way
God it is terrible."
Another writes : "I have
seen men from the front and
have talked with them. Such
was the incessant shower of
shell and shrapnel day and
night, that it beggars descrip-
tion. Dante's InfernoHell
are mild words to use in
describing it. Imagine not
having time to rid ones self
of the vermin swarming over
one, amidst the attacks and
counter-attacks. It's nothing
on paper, but Oh the awful
reality."
"So pilgrims on the scorching
sand,
Beneath a burning sky,
Long for a cooling stream at
hand
For they must drink, or die."
"Wc wanted the cooling
stream, not to save us from
instant death but from being
slowly devoured by vermin."
"Ye gentlemen of England,
who sit at home at ease," of-
ten recurred to me when light-
ing in tke trenches. But
what's the use of talking ?
Telliitg of wWat suffering and
privation are endured by 'our.
brave men' is all piffle. One
must be in the heart of it to
have any idea of the reality."
We desire to acknowledge
the courtesy of the Hon. Colo-
nial Secretary in furnishing us
with copies of the Memoranda
Kaiser for inspection, but
do not promise that he will
prove the cynosure of neigh-
bouring eyes inacomplini- n-
tarysense, however the Kaiser
will take it all standing. Its
a plain, unvarnished tale.
We learn from the writings
of a lady of titleand position,

But on the last day of Janu-
ary 1859 it was noticed that
the Prince could not move
his arm, an examination of
the limb disclosed that the
elbow-joint was dislocated.
In a healthy child, ordinarily
the congenital defect could
be easily remedied, but in the
case of Prince William the
surrounding soft parts were
so injured and the muscles in
such a condition, that no one
dared attempt to set the el-
bow. The present condition
of the Emperor's arm has
been attributed to a mistake
made by those offi-
ciating at the accouchement,
but the Alte Fraulein says
thafr, that is "a lie agreeable
to the Emperor and to his
mother, and her opinion is
that" the child's forearm was
not properly made up by Na-
ture, as, indeed, his whole
left side is weak from the

secret reason for the innova-
tion sought must go without
his belt. Divine omnipoten-
ce has Somehow been omitted
from the category of his at-
tributes in this little particu-
lar. The lingers of the h-ft
hand are moveable, for although
the head of the radius does not
articulate properly with the
condvlesof the luiinerus, the
limb is not inert altogether.
Major von Xormann asserted
that on one occasion the Kaiser
clutched Ins sword with his left
hand, and when angry he has
frequently done so. But while
lie can take hold of an article,
he cannot lift it. He holds the
reins in his left hand when rid
ing, but he is powerless to guide
or direct the horse except with
his right hand or his knees.
But what the Kaiser has lost
from his left arm and hand he
has had made up to him in his
right. It is massive and ugly
in appearance, ugly too, when
shaking hands. He has a mighty-
grip, and that he is proud of his
personal strength is evident
from the fact that he promptly
adopted the simile several years
ago when a correspondent liken
ed his fist to the "terrible right"
of John L. Sullivan the then
champion of the ring. And the
ugliness of his hand may ac-
count for his insane ravings
about women's beautiful hands,
which he never forgets whence
once seen,a circumstance which
keeps the Kaiserin in a turmoil
of jealous rage. The Kaiser's
