To be Given Away In Articles of Real Value ^ ^ , to the Users of MAIL POUCH The incident which occurred at the ban quet of the Deutsche Verein in Mosco\ upon the occasion of the festivities iu connection with the coronation of tb czar, causing prince Henry of Prussia, brother of the emperor, and his majes ty's representative at t-he coronation, to leave the bimquet hall, has juised a, greet particularist (storm throughou ull the southern states of tiie Germnn empire. The origin, of the trouble was in the fact, which, has already been cabled, thqtat the banquet giv»u to Prince Henry and the other visiting- ( princes, the chairman, in toasting- tlie guests, alluded to the minor German princes ns members of Prince Henry's suite, whereupon Prince Ludwig of Bavaria arose in a rage before the chairman's speech was finished and, pounding- tie table with his fist, declared: "We arc not a part of Prince Henry's suite; nor are we vassals of (he German empire. We are the emperor's allies; otherwise I am ;ui independent representative of Bavaria," All southern Germany is exercised over the affair and the Prussian newspapers are filled with articles on the subject, lamenting tlie indiscretion of the chairman or condemning- the hasty actions o£ Princes Henry nnd Ludwig. The incident created no muck public excitement that it naturally led to a demand upon the part of the kaiser that the two princes should explain rhemoA- ter in detail and this, it is understood, has been done. According to the North German Gazette Prince Ludwig anticipated the emperor's request for on ex- plahation, taking the initiative in a communication laying before his majesty the exact words of the president of the banquet, in proposing the toast to Prince Henry in which speech he mentioned the German princes ns having come to Moscow as members of Prince Henry's suite. Against this Prince Ludwig protested to the kaiser, explaining ns he had declared to the chairman of the banquet that he nnd the other princes alluded to were not vassals, but allies of the' kaiser. All Germrais, Prince Ludwig added, be- ; idcs fulfilling- their duty to the father- and, ought not to forget the duties they owed to their own particular counties. Prince Ludwig- is a man of 50 years of ge, :uid npart from the fact that lie is lie future king of Bavaria, he is of a much weightier presence than Prince. Henry. Upon the occasion of his dec laratioii at the banquet he is said to have spoken with great imprcssiveness and in a manner wherein his mending could not* be misconstrued. In con- chiding its article upon the subject the North German Gazette curtly states that "The incident is closed." Other semi-official newspapers, however, hint that the emperor found nothing in Prince Ludwig-'s remarks worth quarreling over and intimated that Prince Henry's resentment of them was childish. These papers also state, that the emperor saw Prince Henry in regard to the matter nnd probably rebuked him for his hasty demonstrations at tlie Moscow banquet, as Prince Henry immediately left Berlin for Kiel for return from Moscow without staying in the capital over night. BICYCLE FOOT THE LATEST. Addition to the Llit of Ailment* Peculiar to Wheelmen. Horror of horrors—here comes the bic\-cle foot! Think of it, juadame, if you persist iu bicycling it will eventually affect your foot.' It veil] swell the muscles, thicken the bones, spread the joints, enlarge the cartilaginous tissues, destroy the contour of your ankle, broaden your heel, t nd—tb is is in strict confidence.mada me —it will makeyou wear a bigger shoe. The important question before wheel- women to-day is: Shall bicycling be abandoned and the diniinutiveness of the foot presej-vcd, or shall the healtlt of the body be improved, even at the expense of the poor foot? This, of course, is a matter that each lady must solve for herself. It lies entirely between her conscience and her foot. Here is how the feet are marred, says the New York Journal. The hinge joint " between the t.ibia and fibula and astra p-nlus is capable of very little motion, t-onsequently the effect of continuous motion is felt most^- in the articula- iiona of the small tarsal bones and the xiiies of the metatarsus. Gradually -he ligaments and muscles uniting these x>nes become elongated and enlargedi he bones spread slightly.and the result s mi abnormnlly developed instep and inkle. Then again, constant pressure pon the sole of the foot hardens the lexor longens ligitorum, or long llcxor f the toes, and. thus destroys that pret- y curve that is supposed to be theindex: o aristocracy. Even the calcis, or heel bone, feels the ffect of this violent exercise. The •endon of Achilles is brought permanently into action, and is greatly strengthened and • enlarged, thereby rounding out a normally slim heel, rnuch to the owner's displeasure. Each of the small bones of the tarsus }jas two or more ligomentous attachments, and there are from 37 to 20 muscles uniting the seven bones of the tarsus with the four metatarsal bones and the 14 phalanges; consequently, when each of these muscles is developed ever so little beyond the Ordinary size it cannot help but make the'owner's feet considerably out of proportion to the rest of the bodv.

AccordJHg' 10 the London Yachtsman, the new cutter Meteor, is a bettei-yacht in every ivny than the Valkyrie III. and is more than a mutch for the Defender. It is understood that the Meteor, after the Kiel races, will take part ia the Clyde races and will probably be one of the contestants in the Cowes reg-atta. Emperor William's warm reception by the English Jiaval architects in Berlin and his telegram to them in wliich he said "blood is thicker than water, 1 points to ainity being restored. The members of the Epyal Yacht squadron nre now eager to haw> the Meteor race in the presence of her owner. REMARKABLY QUICK PASSAGE. Bacord Hade by n Fant-Salllnn Vemol Be- twoon New JTork mid Sydney, Amtrallik The naval hydrographic office at Washington has been informed of a remarkably quick passage made by o sailing vessel—the British bark Belmontr- between New York and Sydney, Austra lia. The Bclmont left New York Feb ruary 8 and arrived nt Sydney April 28 making- the voyage in SO days.- Her run from Xew York to the equator was a remarkably fine one—30 days. While ithus run to the line does not break the irecord made by some of the old clipper jships, it is worthy of note. TheBelmont ^followed closely the outward-bound iroute for Balling vessels as laid down on ithe hydrographic office pilot chart of the North Atlantic for February. Government to Ettabllsh • Biological Surrey. The secretary of agriculture will establish, a. department on July 1 to be called the biological survey. The result is expected to bo a tremendous ieconomlc advantage. Agriculturists, horticulturists and stock raisers are to be given charts showing- the exact- position of each state and territory where certain animals and Teg-etables can be tdvantageously raised. Tfiese will be supplemented by a larg-e cata- iogue containing 1 every land animal and vegetable of the "world, and indicating the areas ia which they may be raised or cultivated by Americans. Millions of dollars are thrown away, each year by farmers and other producers who- plant seed in the wrong- soil or climate, or who undertake to breed animals where the atmosphere and food resource ic Uncongenial. An efficient corps of iiaturalists connects ed with the biolog-ical bureau will make a detailed survey of the whole country, counting and classifying the living species found in each county of each state and terrhory. They will also note the conditions of climate, altitude and soil, and will note how far each condition influences the distribution of the species. The chief of tbo new survey will be Dr. C. Hart Merriam. A survey of the entire country will be ma.de, and chaj-ts will then be published showing the exact location of the various species. Xo other country in the world has ever instituted a survey of this kind. * Telllnc a Uu'roc'H Age. "The popular idea that the age of a horse cnn always be told by looking 1 at his teeth," sakl a veterinary surgeon en Michigan avenue, "is notentirely correct. After the eig-lit-b year the horse has no more new teeth, so that the tooth method is useless for telling the age of n, horse which is more Minn eig-ht3'ears old. As soon as the set of teeth is complete, however, a wrinkle beg-ins toap- "pear on-the upper cdp:c of the lower eyelid, and a new wrinkle is added each year, so that to get the age of ahorso more than eight years old you must figure the teet.h phis the ' rrom Equator to Pnlei. The exact distance from tie equator to either the north or south pole is 0,000 miles, when measured along the surface. ' London'! Population Incntaie.
