CORONATION OF EDWARD VII.



The date originally set for the coronation
of Edward VII. and Queen Alexandra of
Great Britain was June' 25, 1902, but owing
to the sudden and critical illness of the
king the ceremony did not take place until
Aug. 9. For nearly a year preparations had
been made to make the occasion one of the
most notable in the history of the nation.
Troops had been brought from all parts of
Great Britain to take part in the proces-
sion through the streets of London and rep-
resentatives from the leading powers had
arrived and been received as guests of hon-
or. The United States had sent Whitelaw
Reid, Gen. James H. Wilson and Rear-
Admlral John C. Watson.

On the 24th of June everything was in
readiness, when It was announced that the
kin:: was suffering from perityphlitis, a dis-
ease akin to appendicitis, that a serious
surgical operation had been performed and
that the coronation was indefinitely post-
poned. Some alarm had been caused about
ten days previously by reports of the king's
illness, which began with a chill while he
was at Aldershot, but it was generally
thought by the public that the trouble wr.s
of a temporary nature and that no post-
ponement would be necessary. The news
that he was in imminent danger of death
consequently caused sorrow throughout
Great Britain and brought expressions of
sympathy from all parts of the world.



The king was attended by Drs. Joseph
Lister, Henry Francis Laking. Thomas
Smith, Frederick Treves and Thomas Bar-
low, all eminent surgeons. The operation and
subsequent treatment proved successful, and
after some weeks, during which the chances
of life and death seemed about even, the
royal patient recovered sufficiently to per-
mit of his removal to the royal yacht at
Cowes. Here he rapidly regained his
strength ard on Saturday, the 9th of Au-
gust, he was crowned in Westminster abbey
in the presence of a brilliant assemblage
of the peers and peeresses of the realm
and many other distinguished personages.
The archbishop of Canterbury administered
the oath to the king, anointed and crowned
him. Queen Alexandra was crowned by the
archbishop of York. ' Some parts of the cere-
mony as originally planned had to be ab-
breviated or omitted and the special repre-
sentatives of the powers were absent, but
the changes in the programme did not de-
tract from the splendor and solemnity of
the occasion. The procession through the
streets was witnessed by great throngs and
the king and queen were received with loiuj
acclamations along the whole route. Ed-
ward conferred honors upon many distin-
guished men and further signalized the day
by presenting Osborne House to the nation
to be used as a convalescent home for of-
ficers of the army and navy.



GREAT FIRE AT PATERSON, N. J.



Twenty-six blocks in the business sec-
tion of Paterson, N. J., were destroyed bv
a fire which began early on the morning of
Feb. 9. Many of the finest stores and of-
I fice buildings in the city, five churches and



about !iOO residences were burned. Two
deaths were caused and sixty-three persons
were injured, while the property- loss
amounted to $8.000.000. The insurance was
between $4,000,000 and $5,000,000.

WEALTHIEST MEN AND WOMEN IN THE WORLD.



For obvious reasons it is not possible to
give an accurate enumeration of the rirh-
est uieu aud women in various countries of
the world. Even in nations having income-
tax laws the wealth of Individuals is only
approximately known. The following list
is, therefore, not to be regarded as either
complete or absolutely correct as to the

made to avoid the usual exaggerations in
estimating great fortunes. Correspondents
