Grant will contribute a series of re- miniscences this year to a New York magazine in which her son, U. S. Grant, Jr., has become interested. It is not strange that the physicians in charge of the Crown Prince of Ger- many fears farther complication in the case. The complications whieh already exist are more than they can attend to. Dr. Morell Mackenzie has taken the trouble to assert that much has been published about the Crown Prince of Germany was false. No one who has read the contradictory statements re- garding the royal patient's coddition which have issued from San Reno will be surprised at Mackenzie's remark.
