[Special Letter.] Twice within 15 months the rumor that.Queen Victoria contemplated retiring from Great Britian's throne has come across the ocean. When tlhe statement was made early in. 1895 it was discredited in all well-informed circles, hut the latest report seems to be based on substantial grounds and nn announcement of the queen's withdrawal from active, political, life'may be ex- THE PRINCI: OF WALES, pectcd any day. It is hardly probable, however, that the queen contemplates abdication. She if. a woman of re- uiarkiible pride and, in spite of physical debility, a great stickler for etiquette. Should' she decide to rid herself of the cnres of state she will insist upon remaining queen a.nd the prince of Wales will perform her functions possibly under the title of regent, but he will not bocome king- of Great Britain as long as his mother may live. Ha§ Reigned Nearly Slity Veari. Queen Victoria's reig-n. has been one of the most beneficial in. the history of Great Britain. When she was born, May 14, 1S19, in'Kensington palace, the daughter of the impoverished Edward, ci.uke of Kent/there were'several lives and, in" alliance, with Franca and Turkey, compelled the Rti -Petersburg government to give up ite.intentio-n of seizing Constantinople, Iiv 1S50 sbe entered into war against China and Persia, both of which countries were eventually compelled to accede to Britr oin's-dcrniuid. The mutiny of the Indian army, in 1857, was suppressed effectually at her request, but she af ter- vard'instituted many reforms in her Asiatic empire, thereby preventing a repetition of the horrors of Uie fifties. Humanitarian, enterprise. 1 ; of every description received her active support, both us a woman nn<l as a sovereign; ond the great railway system of the United Kingdom was'established with her direct assistance. Like-almost overy other old-world ruler, the queen has repeatedly been the mark of would-be assassins. The first attempt 011 her life was made by Edward Oxford, who discharged two pistols at her and Prince Albert, as they were proceeding up Constitution hill in an open phowtou .from Buckingham palace. June 10,1840. He stood within a few yards of the carriage, but no one was injured. Oxford was sent to aji insa.ne asylum and sn at liberty in 1SOS, on condition of going abroad. On the 27th of June, 13M. a fellow named Pate tried to imitate Oxford, but the queen escaped unharmed. On February 20, 1871, Arthur O'Connor, a boy IS years of age, entered Buckingham palace with an unloaded pistol, and threatened to shoot the queen. He was apprehended and sentenced to imprisonment and flogging. The last attempt n't assassination was that by Roderick Maclean, who, on March 10, 1S82, shot at the queen at the Grcnt Western railway station nt Windsor. He was committal for high treason. Somewhat more pleasant than these occurrences was the queen's experience with an eccentric miser, named John Camden Ntild, who was so pleased witih her personality and public acts that. he. bequeathed to her the sum of £250,000 on August 30, ISS2. Albert Edward, Prince <jf W»le». - Should the prince of V.'ules be appointed regent, as lias boi'ii reported, hit'would be thfe ro;il head of the nation, except i;i name. And he would be the most popular male ruler England has had for nearly a century and a half. Albert Edward was born in Buckingham pnlncc November 9, 1841. He studied «nder privats tutors, passed one'session at thf University of Edinburgh, spent a. year at Oxford, and between her and the succession; and when she ascended the throne on June 20,1837, the people of England feltres.tr less antl discouraged.. But the young girl, whose succession: was 'viewed with so much alarm, developed into one of the.ableat rulers of the'^vorld'.. Without being "ultra-conservative, ;she .insisted upon tht observation of ; every form and ceremony calculated to.inspire respect for the monarchy, aDd,.at the same .time, • gi-anted many privileges to tie common people the bestowal of which had 'been 'fought desperately by' her stubborn predecessors, 7 the'Georges; 'Her marriage, Teburary 10i 1840; to Jher cousin, : Prince Albert; of Saxe-Gotha, .with whom she had long been, deeply; in love, was not received favorably by .her sub-; jects, whq.did hot become reconciled to it""until a'fter, the 'prince's' death,' DC- : ccmber 14', 1881: Then it'began to dawn upon the cordid British mlnds'that there might be such a thing as love, after all; ond cities, Tillages and hamlets joined in expressing.sym'pathy.,for ; ,their, be- 'reared' queen.' The 'noble' gentleman ; 'wh'6' in his life time, had 1 been rHicnled and'jdmpbbned' by'duke and'pauper.waB. held up to the world as a pattern of a | man. and husband. • The praise came.too. late, however, to please the queen, whp; showed her devotion to the memory, of iher'consort by remaining faltMulto.it. During their-81-years of married life the queen aid her consort were blessed with 'nine' children, ail of whom are llv-, ing except Leopold, duke of Albany,; who died 1 March 28, 1884, and Princess, 'Alice .wife 'of Grand Duke Frederick -William of Hesse, who died .December, IV 1878.

ELDJEN. No; I do aot think we intended to run away! If. certainly was not premeditated, but merely a chain of uncon- trollalble circumstances, at least, for two boys of our ngr. However, you shall judge for yourself. I was 13, and my brother 15 years of age. Walter's tastes were decidedly different from mine. He was very quiet by nature, coring but little for outdoor sports and games dear to the heart, of most boy*. H« was a born scholar and bookworm. A volume of Dickens and a eomforta.lile chair were, to him, far. more alluring than the hottest game of baseball that ever gladdened the heart and distorted t\le fingers of .Young America. 1'or myself, I was— well, justun ordinary boy with, perhaps, more thuu the average amo;mt o£ youthful schemes. The advent o£ a circus in our little town fully convinced me that nature had intended me for a trapeze performer, consequently my dear mother, nhvnys my confidante and sympathizer, had no peace of mind until a. costume Of many and wonderful colors was designed aud completed. She had a natural talent for realizing the wants of a boy. No matter what manner of garb was He- sired, sho was always equal to the emergency, and many and startling were the garments evolved from her resourceful brain, to me«t the numerous demands of my youthful fancies. My acrobatic ambitions were brought to an abrupt termination by the trapeze bar breaking while I was in the middle of a wilO gyration. I dropped very suddenly, and also very forcibly, landing on top of my hiud on the hard floor, and giving me the~impression that my cranium must be driven in, entirely ont of Biglit betweeen my shoulders. I think U was uear!y four weeks before I could turn my neck withoutturningmy en'-iro body. "It was about a month after this episode, and the family cat had fully recovered from the fit into which she hod l>een scared when I struck, tha't I became interested in pedeetrianism. A iousin from Boston came down for a two weeks' vacation from his studies, and an opportunity to fill his lungs with pure country air. He was a big, strong fellow, ii freshman in Harvard, and enthusiastic over all athletic sports, so when I observed- that every morning, rain or shine, he invariably was out for a two or three-mile constitutional, just as an appetizer for his breukfas^ he said, it fired the spark of my somewhat abated athletic ambitions into fierce flame again. If imitation is slncefest flattery, my big cousin ought certainly to have felt greatly flattered, for now every morning found me pacing 1 off miles, and adding to my fund of already vigorous heal.th. , ..,. . ' I had been "endeavoring for a week or. more .to enthuse some of the benefits to be 'derived from 'this morning spin into "my brother; , and at last, by my : persistent efforts, one evening I aroused his interest e*jugh to exact from him a promise to. accompany me on the following morning, and if it proved agreeable, perhaps on every . .morning. It did not prove ngreeablt, as you will observe. . . . •-,'••• He showed upi faithful to his promise, bright and early, but absolutely refused-. to start without his .breakfast Th'ere was nothing to do but wait for it, and it proved fortunate that we did so.
