Ill' LA MAUQl'ISB IJ1U FOXTEXOV. COLONEL SIR AUGUSTUS FIT5SGEORGE. who has just arrived in New York cn board the Cutiard liner Carmania, ?>n route to the Cobalt mines district of Canada, owned by the company.of which he is presi> Jent, ami who will afterwards pay a series of visits in the Dominion and Ihe United States, has royal blood iti liis veins, as a great-grandson of King Ueorge III. He is the youngest of the three sons of' the late Duke of Cambridge by the latter's marriage with Miss Farebrother, a popular Irish actress, whose acquaintance he had made at Dublin. The marriage was celebrated on January S, IS47, in the Church of St. John's, at Clerkcnwell. London, the name of the royal bridegroom appearing on the parish register as George Frederick Cambridge, of the Parish of St. I'aul, Deptford. But inasmuch as the duke liad failed to obtain the sanction of the crown, in accordance with the statutory requirements of the royal marriage act. the union was invalid in the syes of the law, and Uie duke's bride was never officially recognized as his wife not; permitted to share his honors and dignities. She was known as Mrs. Kitzgeorge, and whereas he ostensibly resided at Gloucester House, on Park Lane, in Piccadilly, she lived in a house near-by, where her children were brought up. She never appeared at any of the dinners or entertainments that the duke gave at Gloucester House, was never received at court, and remained wholly in the background. Colonel Sir Augustus Fitzgeorge was the youngest of tho sons whom she bore to the duke. He was educated at Sandhurst, served in the Rifle Brigade in Canada for tlve years, from 1S65 to 1870, was on the staff of Lord Napier in India, was transferred from the Rifles to the Eleventh Hussars, and for the Inst ten or fifteen years of his father's life acted as his private secretary and equerry. It was for the services which he thus rendered to the Duke of Cambridge i?s a member of his royal household, and not because he happened to bo the duke's son, that on Itis father's death he was knighted by King Edward and ilecoraieu -with the Star of the Order of St. Mictiaei and St. George. He received the bulk of the fortune left by the duke, for his older brother. Admiral Sir Adolphus FitzGeorge. Royal Navy, is very rich, through his marriage with the daughter of the late Thomas Holden. while the eldest brother, the late Colonel George Fitzgeorge. was disinherited by the duke., owing to the amount already spent by his father in extricating him from one t'nancial difficulty after the other. It is the widow of Colonel George Fitzgeorge, who flourished for a time in New Vork and elsewhere in the United States as "Lady" Fitzgeorge. She courted publicity, vouchsafed many interviews to th* newspapers on the subject of the reigning family of England. and repeatedly expressed in print her hope and expectation that her two daughters, Iris and Daphne. Eitzgeorge, who were under the guardianship of their uncle, Admiral Sir Adolphus Eitzgeorge. and her son, George, now an officer in the British navy, should marry Americans. She is by birth n member of the house of Baring, and before marrying George Fitzgeorge was the wife of Colonel Frank \V. Arkwright, of the Coldstream Guards, this marriago being sundered by the divorce court. The name Fitzgeorge may be trans- j latcd as "the aon of George," and in ' this conneption It may be mentioned i that the natural children of royal personages in Kngland usually bear j tha name of their royal father, pro- ! iixe-J by tho word "Fitz." Thus, the ; largo tribe of illegitimate children of j Kiiig William IV. by the actress Mrs. ?Jordan, >videl\ known In her day as i Dolly Blatul, bore the najtne of KHz- j clarence, owing to the fact that at ] the time of their birth their father ; was the Duke of Clarence. The pat- | ronyn:ii: of the nonagenarian Duke of . Grafton, and also of Lord Southampton, is Fitzroy, which, together with tlis l end sinister across the royal arms j of England, accorded to them as their j heraldic device, serves to indicate , j that the tlrst Duke of Grafton was j I the illegitimate son of Charles II., the j "Roy" or King, by Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland. Emperor Nicholas last spring be| stowed upon his two eldest daughters | the colonelcies of a regiment of tho ! Third Hussars and of the Third Lani ccrs, respectively, and during the ; course of the summer their photographs. garbed In the uniform of j these two cracK corps, have been widely published on this side of the Atlantic. A fortnight ago the Czar held I a big review at Krasnoe-Sele, near St. I Petersbuig, during the course of ? which Grand Duchess Olga, who is not I quite eighteen. and Grand Duchess faiiana, who is a little over sixteen, ] led their retpective regiments past the j j Emperor, first at a trot and then at ? j a gallop. As they are both very j j wholesome, attractive girls, splendid [ I eouestriennes, and look particularly j j fascinating in their uniform, this } j military debut of theirs was the fea- j i ture of the pageant. j For those women snd young girls in j this country who insist on riding ! astride, I may add, that the two j grand duchesses at the review used side saddles, and skirts, the latter i i bei'ig of the s-ame hue .is the gold- j j laced tunic of their uniform, and Just i : showing the top of the boot. They t ; saluted, not with their swords, but i I with tlAeir riding whips, and, while Olga wore the busby of the Hussars. Tntiana's head was coifed with the ! czapka of the Lancers. Sovereigns are theoretically broth- j crs and sisters, and in official com- ; ! munieatlons address one another as : such. Privately, when they are the ; same age, they address each other as 1 i cousins. Tiiis is only natural, since j ! they are all more or less nearly allied j I to one another by tics of kinsmanslilp. J | Where the difference of the ag?s Is I J great, the seriors are addressed as l uncle and aunt, even when these titles | are not warranted by the degree of relationship. Thus. Queen Victoria | during the latter part of her life was ? addressed as "Aunt" by all the younger ! generation of sovereigns and princes j and princesses of the blood. George V. and Queen Mary are ! therefore perfectly justified in having ? caused the centrepiece of the niagnlfi; cent silver service which tney have ; presented to King Manuel on the ocj casion of his weddin-7 to be inscribed | from "his affectionate cousins": while i Queen Alexandra is equally warranted ! by practice and etiquette in descrih: Ing herself, in sending him Ills wedding present, as his "affectionate aunt." I -London "Truth," which, in its latest issue, takes exception to this, ia manifestly unaware of this custom, since 1 $300 CASH, $200 CASH, - $150 CASH, $100 CASH There In $1,1100 in Tills l'ot, nnd You <"nu Sit in the CJnnie! If you are working: along for a more or less salary, in a humdrum sort of way, getting no place, except to work each morning, then you have missed opportunities! Here is a fine chance to miss another one! Or you might sho\? a little gumption ?a little spirit?a flash of ambition?? and seize this opportunity. Look it over! The opportunity presented is a chance to win $300 in gold coin, or one of a host of remarkable gifts, totaling $1,200, for playing a game. This game requires no woyk. It has no subterfuges concealed about it anywhere. It is a real game, conducted by this newspaper solely to amuse its readers, and to pay them handsomely for being c.musejl. The game consists of a series of seventy-seven pictures, each of which represents the title of a book. Those coining closest to naming the seventyseven book titles which the seventyseven pictures represent, will receive the awards. And that's all thero is to it. Theso seventy-sovon titlos, reprosejited by the seventy-seveji pictures, Were selected from a list of book titlos called the contest catalogue. This catalogue contains, In all, 6,000 book titles, arranged in alphabetical order. You can get the catalogue, which contains the seventy-seven correct titles, for 35 cents, or 40 cents by mall. With each catalogue The Times-Dispatch gives, free, sevon certificates, redeemable for the contest pictures from No. 1 to No. 36, Inclusive. To-day picture No. 41 la published. Better clip that picture from this paper. Then you will have the first thirty-live pictures free, with the catalogue, and you will have to secure only pictures 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 and 41 in order to have all the "pictures published thus far. The fi>j8 last-named pictures you can secure at 2 cents each. Or get an Answer Book, and with it these pictures free! And with all the pictures to date in j your possession, simply secure the bal- | ance of the seventy-seven pictures from | The Times-Dispatch each morning, and 1 when you have all the seventy-seven 1 pictures, send or bring them all in with your answers. You can solve each picture, if you use your ingenuity, by reference to the catalogue. A knowledge of books is not needed at all. If a picture showing a group of people being shown through j ruined building, and a guide saying: "This is one of the Meceas of tourists in Rome," was drawn to represent the book title, "Slghtsee?ng in Rome," you do not have to have any book knowledge to find that out! Ask yourself what sort of a book titlo that picture must have been drarwn to represent. Figure out several possible titles that the picture might represent, and then look through the catalogue to seo If any such title as one of them Is listed there. The correct title to each picture Is guaranteed to be in the catalogue. Look at the Booklovers' Contest announcement in to-day's paper. What book title do you think to-day's picture might represent. Make up the sort of book titles it must represent. Then get a catalogue and test out each of the titles you have figured out! Keep at It, ?and you'll got the correct title! t Insist^ that Dom Manuel Is not the lephew of Queen Alexandra, although :he latter is always addressed as ''Ma I'ante" (aunt) by tho Dukes of Orcans, of Montpencier, of Guise, Venlomo and Alencon. by tlie Duke and Duchess of Aotita, and even tho Count it Turin, and the Duke of the Abruzzl, whose relationship to her Is very renote indeed. In the aamo way t It o ate King Christian of Denmark was ilways addressed as uncle by tho present Emperor of Germany, who, in turn, signs his private communications to Empcroi- Francis Joseph of Austria as | 'Your affectionate nephew," lu lieu of 'brotheV." It was the refusal of Czar Nicholas [. to accord tho title of brother to Napoleon III., owing: to the sanguinary coup d'etat, by means of which he obtained the throne of France, that contributed in no small measure to the Crimean War. It also furnished the opportunity to Napoleon to make a witty response. For when he received an ofllclal communication from Czar N'icholas in which the latter styled him. not brother, but friend, the French monarch, addressing himself to the Muscovite ambassador at a reception if the diplomatic corps, exclaimed in tho hearing of all present: "You may tell your master and sovereign that [ 1m exceedingly flattered by his form sf address: since 0110 chooses one's friends, whereas one cannot select jne's relatives." Presidents of republics are not addressed as "brothers," t>ut as "great and good friends." (Copyright, 1913. by the Brentwood Company.) Flood, Hay and Watson, All Occupy Speaker's Chair in the House. Washington. D. C.. September 1.? This was distinctly "Virginia Day" in the House, not that any spectacular events were pulled off. but by reason of the fact that three Virginia members of the House, Representatives Flood, Hay and Watson, presided over its deliberations during the course of the day's business. When the House met at noon and began consideration of the urgent deficiency bill. Congressman Flood was put in charge of and immediately became speaker "pro tem" as long as the bill shall be under consideration. A little later on he asked Congressman Hay to take the chair, and towards the close of the day Representative Watson wielded the gavel. It was remarked here during the day that never before perhaps in the history of Congress had three members from the same State presided over the House on the same day on the same bill. It is needless to say that cach of tho three Virginians made an excellent presiding officer, and that should It ever become necessary to choose a successor to Speaker Clark from among the Democrats, there is plenty of pood material in tJie Virginia delegation to draw from. P. H. McG. CHAIRMAN CLARK WILL GUARD "PORK BARREL" Washington. D. C.. September 4.? Congressman Frank Clark, of .Florida, chairman of the House Committee on Building and Grounds, in a speech* on the floor of the House to-day declared that as chairman of the committee just referred to he intended to see that hereafter applications for public buildings are held within reasonable limits. He said that while he had no objection to the spending of government funds for legitimate purposes, he thought that due caution should be given to the authorization of buildings all over the country when there is no real need for them. It will be his purpose when his committee brings in a bill this winter, Mr. Clark said, to see to it that not a penny of government money is wasted. Congress has been criticized considerably in the past for its lavish expenditures. and the public buildings committee has often been denominated a "pork barrel" committee. There shall be no need for this hereafter, Mr. Clark said, although every legitimate proposition will have earnest consideration. P. H. McG. .MICIOTS AT AI.F.XAMHUA. II>-County Convention of W. C. T.

H. Sehwarzschlld, of the jewelry ^ house of Schwarzschild Bros., and chairman of the publicity committee of the Retail "Merchants' Association, speaking yesterday of the bright prospects of carrying to a successful conclusion the plans for the fashion week's display and united openings, said: "We could not pull off anything great In Richmond without the help of the newspapers, and that Is a help we can always count on if the thing to be pulled off is worthy of Richmond and to the interest of the city and the business of the city., When this united I opening scheme for the four days beginning September 23 and continuing I to and through September 2fi, was first agitated we felt that we could count on the assistance and the boosting ability of the press, and we have not been disappointed. Just as soon as the newspaper men looked far enough into the plans to be sure It was a scheme | for the advancement of Richmond's inl terest they came right in with enthusiasm. and they are with us heart and | soul. That is enough of itself to guarantee success if we merchants d6 our j part, and we will." Mr. Schwarzschild says it is gratifying to observe the good team work | that all of the merchants are putting in. He thinks the fashion show is .uoing to be one of the biggest things Richmond has ever pulled off. and that it will be indeed a show that will be j worth going miles to see, for every retail merchant seems determined to make a better display and make his house more attractive than his neighbor's. With every man trying to reach I the top rung of the ladder In the matter of making a fine and profitable show i It may be set down as a fact that all of the other rungs will be something truly great. Go where you may on Broad Street ; or on Main Street or any of the other i streets where a retail business is done, and you will not be able to get the ?merchants to talk of much else but the | fashion show and the great things that t are being done to make it the most | attractive thing of its kind Richmond J ever took a hand in.
