of presentations. Along with this there goes a certain trading of these rights, and before the season begins the personal columns of upper-class newspapers always have their crop of offers by ladies of title to "chaperon" aspirant youth. The antics through which people will go in order to win entry to the Court or the ranks of the titled belong rather to the vulgarities of the eighteenth century than to a time when England is thought to be virtually a republic. We hear that an anonymous gentleman has given a large sum of money to charity in honour of some royal occasion; shortly afterwards his name is revealed, and we find him to be perhaps an unknown company promoter; a year elapses and his name figures in the honours list as a knight or baronet; in his locality his has become a family of social significance, for the British aristocracy is always open to talent.
When we see the picture of the English Court with its appanage of title, ceremony, and tradition, we cannot evade the contrast with those other constitutional monarchies which have survived into modern times. If the Dutch Queen or the Danish King has a less important empire over which to reign, each seems able to maintain position and popularity without anything like the elaborateness, the expensiveness, or the social hierarchy of the English Court. There can be no doubt that the social manners of their countries are immensely improved thereby. There is less countenancing of snobbery, vulgarity, and false values such as hereditary titles and Court display inevitably give. Neither the Dutch Queen nor the King of Belgium, Denmark, or Norway is surrounded by an aristocracy. The granting of hereditary honours has ceased. The absence of a privileged second chamber can hardly be said to have undermined the royal position; and this is an effective disproof of Edward VII's
