What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

In spite of the fact that they have nil been both beautiful and highly gifted, the women of the Belgian royal family have been sliigularly unfortunate, espe cially In their matrimonial relations. The terrible fate of the empress of Mex ico. who has been a hopeless mndwoman since 1886, has always thrown a shadow over court life a t Brussels, the more so that the king and queen are tenderly attached to her, and always make a point of paying her frequent visits.

During those festivities strong proofs of mutual esteem were given by both countries.

Being apart from tho affairs of state, I can only pray God fervently that cor dial relations between tho two countries of the whole will not exceed 820,000, but she has. already received some priceless lace from the king, her uncle, and among the bridegroom's gifts Is a ruby studded corselet said to have once be longed to Marie de Medici. The Due de Vendome, Prince Phlllppr Emmanuel, Is the only son of tho Due d'Alencon, and the favorite nephew oh the enormously rich Due d’Aumule. He differs In every particular, from Ills fast nnd unpopular cousin, the Due of Or leans, and hna, It Is said, signified his Intention of not nsklng him to his wed ding. In accordance with a quaint old cus tom rarely followed nowadays. Princess Henrietta hopes to be allowed to go Into retreat for a week before her marriage: In Nwat case, she will retire to a con vent for the prescribed seven days, and spend the lime In praying, fasting nnd silence. It Is. however, doubtful If the king will accede to her request, for there Is no doubt, that his doing so would greatly irritate the Belgian radicals. Had It not been that January has be come the traditionally unlucky month of the Belgian royal family, the wed ding would have taken place carts' In the year, for the countess of Flanders has a superstitious horror of long en gagements. As It Is, everything has been done to hurry the settlements, and it has been arranged that the young couple shall take up their residence In Paris Immediately after the honeymoon. __ ___ __ _ ______ the option of government and subject after fO f t — to bo called in and paid by the United States nnd to bear Interest at tho rate of 3 per c ent The refunded bonds are to be held by the United States treas ury and be exchangeable for old bonds.

Both curs were bad ly smashed a rd 36 passengers received Injuries more or less serious. Five of these are thought to havo been fatally hurt.

Jones, claim agent Richard Lonagen, Insurance agent. The Kirkwood electric railway has Just been completed, nnd crowds were taking advantage of its being Sunday to patronize the fine. Every car was crowded. When the collision occurred, passengers were thrown In a pile by the contact, which was terrible. J. A. Aik- en, the motorman of the castbound car, nnd Smith, motorman of the westbound car, were taken out of the wreck with many bones broken. It Is thought they will die. Among the passengers th« most badly injured was J. L. Jones, claim agent for tho M. & T. railroad, nnd Richard Lonagen, an Insurance agent. Neither can Uvo, it Is thought. They were all residents of SL Louis. Twenty-nine passengers were taken out. some with limbs broken and bodies bruised, but It Is thought that no one will die as the result of the Injuries re ceived. Between 20 and 30 others re ceived less serious Injuries. Help was sent from Kirkwood.

Tho princess Is devoted to her mother; together they walk, drive and ride. She Is an cxqul- slto musician and a fair amateur artist. The due de Vcndomo's bride-elect has led a for brighter life than that of her cousins. The count and countess of Flanders seemed, till the death of their eldest child, Prince Baldwin, to have' escaped the fate that apparently be falls all those connected with this royal house. Tho countess Is .a German by blrth, being the only daughter of Prince Charles of Hohenxollern. Highly ac- lompllshed and devoted to painting, she still takes lessons from any leading artist brought by pleasure or business within hall of her home. Both sho and her husband have made It their one ob ject In life to prevent their children— and especially the daughters—from sharing, or being overcast by, the gloom which hangs like a pall over 'all their nearest relations. The Princesses Josephine and Henri etta arc both pretty, gentle-looking girls.
