THE ROYAL DUKE DOCTOR
PRINCE CHARLES THEODORE,
DUKE OP BAVARIA.
Tho Purple No Ear to the Good Work
of Two People In Alleviating the Suf

Duke and Hla Noble Wife Devoting
Thoir Lives to the Service of the Blind
—The Great Work Already Accom
From Good Words.
Prince Charles Theodore, Duke of
Bavaria, is the son unci heir of the traveler
and author, Maximilian, who, the head of a
distinct royal line in Bavaria, bears the
title, "Herzog in Bayern," and of Ludovica,
youngest daughter of King Maximilian
Joseph, first King of Bavaria. Ho was
Lorn Aug. 9,1839, and married at Dresden
iu 1805 the pious Princess Sophia, daughter
of the learned scholar, King John of
Saxony. Left a widowor In March, 1867,
with an only child, a littlo girl, he married,
seven years later, tho Princess Mary
Josepha, Duchess of Braganza, Infanta of
Portugal, the third of Dou Miguel’s gifted
Tho prevention and cure of disease have
from an early age possessed a peculiar fasci
nation for his royal highuoss, who is pre
eminently fitted by nature to pursue this
branch of science. .Vs soon, therefore, jib ho
could free himself from his military duties
he regularly studied and worked in a hospi
tal. He was at 11 rat silently and persistently
opposed and obstructed by members of the
medical stuff, until finally his indomitable
tenacity and skill compelled them to ac
knowledge him no dilettante but an adopt
iu scientific and practical medicine aud sur
liy degrees ho devoted his energies to tho
service of the blind. In this beneficent
cause he is most efficiently seconded by his
young and courageous wife. Married at tho
early age of 17, she has qualified herself un
der her husband’s direction for tho treat
mefit of disease; and, although an innate
votary of cleanliness aud freshness, accepts
jier[K'tual contact with dirt and poverty and
n ver shrinks from tho most loathsome
sights and smells; while he, animated with
a love of incessant work and increasing
knowledge, introduces into his hospital at
Tegtjrnsee the latest scientific discoveries of
tho healing art which he learns each year in
Munich or Vienna.
At Tcgernsee. some thirty miles southeast
of Munich, tho palace stands on tho eastern
shore of the brood lake, environed by tho
village It was until 1808 a famous Benc
d.stitib monastery, with a long line of
abbots extending over 1,000 years. Duke
Charles Theodore inherited the domain ou
the demise of his maternal uncle, Prince
Charles of Bavaria. The new possessor and
his wife—ever his true helpmate—immedi
ately began a life of hard work and philan
thropy that at first astonished the people,
until they fully recognized the rare qualities
of the royal master and mistress.
The Duke and Duchess spend a great part
of each year on this estate, carefully watch
ing over the training of their bright and hap
py children, often surrounded by other
merry little folks and their parents, all
closely-attached relatives gathered together
for the celebration of beautiful family fes
tivals. But, while enjoying an ideal do
mestic life, they never forget their sick, to
whom they daily minister In their hospital.
It is situated at a quarter of an hour’s walk
from the palace aud is served by Sisters of
Among the many interesting cures ef
fected by the Duke at Tegemsee may be
mentioned those of children boru blind' Of
course in tho education of the blind, the
knowledge of external objects is chiefly con
veyed by touch, giving double significance
to the words of Holy Writ: “The eye can
not say to tho band, I have uo need of thee.”
A tiny girl who had thus been trained,
when she could see was noticed by the Duch
ess silently to contemplate then stroke a
table aud afterward e. chair. A boy, who
had likewise received sight, was unable to tell
her royal highness whether her watch wus
round or square until he had felt it. At
first it was difficult for the children to walk
alone with their eyes open, especially in
going down-stairs; and she would gladly
have retained them near her for some time
to study their unfolding faculties had not
the relatives naturally required the return
of the little ones who had not hitherto be
held their faces.
Tlie Duke, unforl unately, suffers from
a delicate chest, which compels him at
times to seek a mild climate. In the spring
of 1885 it was consequently decided that
he should make a stay of somo weeks at
They had scarcely arrived when his royal
highness, although troubled with a bron
chial catarrh, finding tbo prescribed rest
insupportable, arranged, with the ready co
operation of the local authorities, for two

Let us now suppose ourselves privileged
to enter the Duko’s wards. At 0:30 a. in.
we find tho two spacious, usually cheerful
southern rooms in that state of obscurity in
which they must now be kept even at the
brightest noon. In the first, the two opposite
rows of beds contain recumbent, motionless
male figures, with liundaged heads, in the
hospital dressing-gowns, made of red and
white striped ticking. Tho second and
dining-room has a similar arrangement of
bandaged females in white bod-gowns. In
loth wards the blackboard affixed above
each bed, announcing the case under treat
ment, almost universally has in white chalk
the word “Starr” (cataract). From want of
space several male and female patients are
propped up with cushions iu arm-chairs.
Tlie Sister of Charity in charge is com
pleting the administration of coffee and
bread to each, when the door opens ami a
gentleman enters carrying a case of instru
ments. Tho Duke, for it is he. quietly asks
for a lighted candle, which the sister holds,
and begins bis round from bed to bed, un
handaglng the eyes, carefully examining
[ mil dressing thorn. It is a noted fact that
the blind in this isolated condition fools the
need of a friend and confidant much more
than the seeing. Usually nothing is so un
pleasant to him as to lie quite alone, for lie
then realizes to the I'uil the difficulty of l;is
position, mid ho clings with body and soul
to those who arc genuinely kind to him.
I'hus these poor patients, separated from
thoir kinsfolk and acquaintance and depend
ent on the Duke, whom in their simplicity
they often term Herr Doctor or Herr Augo
nart (eye doctor), pour into his intontive car
tho story of their maladies, their hopes and
frara even on quite irrelevant but to them
most weighty subjects.
While thus employed systematically mak

good-humored, clover young physician from

At this hour applicants whom the Frinee

The operations, which, from want of

Duchess recognises each case, and percelv
lng at u glance what instruments will be
needed holds them in readiness; and at times
her good nerve and steady hand help in the

Italian. Many who coma from solitary
homesteads situated in remote valleys or ou
lofty mountains, and siieak varied and
almost unintelligible dialects, are odd,
grotesque, uncouth; yet possess an innate
good breeding, while wholly ignorant of all
customary observances to rank. Borne,

easily to be subdued. Not a few are
truly heroic by nature, others
are nerved to support agony
under such unique and flattering conditions.
Tho sensitive are often too much overcome
for words, and when blessed with sight find
relief by repeatedly kissing tho Duko’s
beneficent hand. Hundreds nave never be

ing day by day, week by week, tho same
tragic anil oven comic forms and character
istics, which are relieved, however, of all
dull uniformity to the Duke and Duchess by
their own enthusiasm, sympathy with hu
man nature, and delicate sense of humor.
When the benign pretence of the Duke
and Duchess no longer lightens the tedium
the hours drag wearily on in the gloomy in
firmary. There are littlo contretemps; ig

at the absolute need of the enforced pas

While these poor mortals arc enduring to
the best of their ability this chrysalis stage
of darkness and torpor, other sufferers are
groping their way, being led, carried, or, if
well-to-do, conveyed in bath-chairs to the
Villa Adore. Old and young, from far and
near, with every possible derangement of
eyesight—blind from birth, or blind from
small-pox. fever, inflammation, cataract,
external injury, dofect in tho optic nerve,

they troop to be relieved by the Duke, at
first each afternoon, later thrice in the week;
the highest number reached in any after
noon being ninety-ono, the total 2,000.
Tbo footmen welcome each newcomer
with a personal interest and deference that

bUitibs are groat; and after arranging thorn
in tho spacious ontranco hall usher them by

Duchess. Their royal highnesses, in tlio
most oasy and natural way, attend to each
cose, make out together what illiterate
peasants, wholly ignorant of all laws of
nature and health, mean in thoir strunge
patois—he tenderly lifting shaggy, un
kempt hair off weather-beaten foreuoads to
obtain a clearer view of the defective eye

poor people to explain themselves, and,
when need be, writing but a diagnosis or a
prescription for tho Duke to sign.

AN EXPENSIVE DIVERSION.
What It Cost® to Koep a Steam
New York, Aug. S. —As millionaires be
come ploutier in New York, it is difficult to
Imagine how pooplo who are bound to be
singular and exclusive will find diversions
sacred to themselves. Already steam
yachting, that sport which, a few years
ago, was restricted to half a dozen
families, is comparatively common. That
is to say, not less than fifty steam yachts
are now afloat with wealthy New Yorkors
onboard. The Astors aud the Vanderbilts
sot the fashion, and os many follow
as are able. It is considered especially
desirable not to go to tho popular resort*, no
matter how generally favored or costlj
they may be, but to sail clear away from
society on a yacht, leaving tho rest of the
world to discuss and envy the fortunate
yaohtsmen. Tho exclusive character of
steam yachting cannot be more strikingly
demonstrated than by culling one littla Item
from the statistics on this branch of marine
information. There aro only 75 steam
Yachts over 100 feet in length in all Amer
ica. None of these boats make less
than 15 miles an hour, and most of
them are capable of a tnms-At
lant.o trip. Several of them, like
James Gordon Bennett's Namouna, havo
boon around the world. The Namouna is
226 feet long, over all. The largest steam
yacht yet built is Wilfiaui K. Vanderbilt’s
new boat, tho Alva, which is 285 feet long.
It costs tho owner of the Alva upward of
$1,21)0 a month to run his yacht on an ocean
voyage, without sponding any money ou
provisions for himself and guosts. Asa
fashionable thing can not servo its purpose
without being displayed, tho oost or enter
taining guests constitutes the biggest part of
the bill in steam yachting. It is said that
Vanderbilt, on the Alva, and Jay Gould, 'in
tho Atulauta, frequently spend S2OO
a day for their sport. When tho Alva goal
to sea she carries a pilot, two engineers, two
firemen, a steward, a cook and seven sailors.
Besides these, thore ore servants in propor
tion to the numtier or guests. The boat is
not unjustly called a floating palace, for it
is so arranged internally that the owner aud
his friends may live almost exactly as they
do on shore. The dining saloon, for instance,
Is 18 by 31 feet in measurement. There is a
well stocked library, and ten suites of
rooms, in each of which is included a sitting
room, chamber and bathroom; and there is,
beside.-,—a feature which is probably to bo
found ou no other yacht in the world—a nur
sery and governesses.
SHE HATES PARROTS.
Polly’s Undignified Remarks Applied
to the Wearer of a Queer Hat.
From the Brockton Gazette.
Parrots are funny birds. Perhaps tho
funniest one in this city is at the police sta
tion. This parrot is the property of City
Marshal Bailey, aud is 8 years old. Tho
bird is a good talker, and tho police officers
make a groat pet of Polly, who seems to
enjoy it. Bhe makes life a burden to Rover,
the police dog, by whistling at him. Bho
also makes the officers laugh whenever a
prisoner is brought in. by exclaiming,
“Here’s unother druuk,” whether it is such
Polly enjoys perfect freedom and is never
kept in a cage. Hhe perches on a stick
driven into one of tho wooden posts. Quite
frequently Polly files across the room to the
window, and every one who passes and fails
to say “Good morning, Polly, 1 ' is sure to
hoar from her parrotsiiip. The other day
an elderly lady, well dressed, happened to
pass by the station, having on a peculiar
looking hat. Polly exclaimed, “Bhoot tho
hat 1” Tho wearer of the lieudgear turned
around is amazement to find out the parson
who uttered such insulting remarks, but
she failed to sec Polly. Tho woman had
only started again when she was told to
“Go along, you old sinner.” This scntenco
made the woman angry. She walked upas
far as the iioliee station door, and there she
beheld Polly, who greeted her with u long,
loud laugh. That woman hates parrots
