bought the first 2,000 acres from the Indians for $160. They have been buying ever since and, like the Astors, they never sell. Like most of the English squires they have taken their public duties seriously. The grandfather of the Senator-elect was a candidate for governor of New York, being defeated by Horatio Seymour. When the Civil War began he shouldered his gun and entered the Army of the Potomac, giving up his life at the bloody battle of the Wilderness. Then the son, tho but eighteen, took his place in the ranks in 1864, and kept it until the close of the war, when he was mustered out as a major.

When the Spanish-American war came the present Senator-elect was barely of voting age. Having finished the course at Yale, however, nothing would do for him but to follow the martial example of his sire and grandsire and go to war. He went as a private in the field artillery, and was sent first to Porto Rico and then to the Philippines. After a year's service he returned home to take up his position as a farmer.

He owns

a first-class farm of 1,200 acres, in Livingstone county, N. Y., and a large cattle ranch in Texas, and the major part of his income comes from these two sources. In 1902 he married a daughter of John Hay, Secretary of State, and in 1904, having entered upon his manifest destiny as a farmer and a soldier, he proceeded to carry out the rest of his inherited duties by going into politics. He entered the Assembly and by the ime he was twenty-eight he was chosen Speaker, and “it is fair to say,” says che N. Y.

The philosophers are apparently best represented. The taste of the Herr Doctor is not for elegant literature, as was Bülow's. One encounters no such author as Mérimée, in whom Bülow delighted, or Carducci, whom the Prince deems Europe's first modern poet. Bethmann-Hollweg reads Kant, whose “Critique of Pure Reason” he places beside anything in Aristotle or Plato. He is like the late William E. Gladstone in the devotion with which he reads theology and, like the British statesman, he has given great attention to classical literature. There is much in the mental traits of the pair that occurs as a striking similarity to the writer in the Italian daily; but,

The German Chancellor might be somewhat hastily set down as a pedant, says the Gaulois, if one did not note the efficiency he has always displayed in the course of his rise through the various ranks of the Prussian bureaucracy. His industry and his tenacity of purpose reveal the true Brandenburger, in a remote village of which he was born nearly sixty years ago. He has the relancholy temperament of the Brandenburgers, the characteristic grave eye and that fervent Christian piety which is so pleasing to Emperor William. William II. himself is called a Brandenburger by Germans who have studied him and by this is implied that he is more prayerful and
