DB. VON HOHENZOLLERN. The German Emperor's devotion to, and pride in, his six stalwart sons has (writes the "Westminster Gazette") again and again been justified by.the youths' performances at school and In the Army. Prince August Wllhelm, Who has now received his doctor's de gree at Strasburg University, is-the first HohfenzoUern Prince who has ever galnc" titular honors at a German Uni versity. That the thesis which gained him his new title should have been on the development of the Commissariat Department in the Prussian Army-be fore the days when the first king as cended the throne would please the Im perial father in quite a particular man ner. The fact that one of his sons should combine knowledge of military matters with the gift of expressing his knowledge in such prose as will com mend it to the scholastic dignitaries of a University, must be as gratifying to William II. as it Is to tho average edu" cated German when a University man embarks upon a business .career,*? a cou...

It Is the history of Scotland, in the main, that engages his pen. Tho origin of tho Stuarts, says Mr Cowan, . will always be a controversial question . until moro light Is thrown on the sub ject by scientific research. Mr Cowan icmlnds the reader, not without reason, as ho shows 'In his. observations on .Buchanan's account of tho origin of tho Stuarts, of the distinction between tho ofiice of "Steward of the King's House "hohl" and that of "High Steward of Scotland."
