Caroline Elizabeth Ida , of Ueuss , is really pretty—even if she is a princess—and she is about to marry young Grand Duke Williolm Ernst , of Saxe-Weimar , who is highly interesting on two counts . First , he is said to be one of the richest rulers in Europe , although lie is scarcely more than u boy ; and , . second , he is heir to the throne of Holland as long as Queen Wilhelmina has no children .

Philadelphia Waking ; Up . Another time-honored Philadelphia Institution Is doomed . The wonder is not that the horse-block should be banished , but that it has so long survived its useful n &lt;&gt; es . Pew persons now ride from house to house in town , and to enter a city carriage the mounting block is an obstruction rather than a convenience . It has come down from the period of the high chaise , to mount into which required as much ngility as to mount into the saddle . But while unused , the block has remained in many respectable quarters to trip the unwary pedcstrimi and tempt to profanity . The removal of these monuments of the past thus contributes both to the convenience and the good temper of the community , and since Mayor Ashbridge has laid his reforming hand upon them the places that have known them will soon know them no more . —Philadelphia Ledger . Horesless carriages , fuelless engines and the wireless telegraph ajfe the greatest innovations . I ^ t ...
