Queretaro, in 1864. It was after the 1 poor lady had thrown a plateful of cakes; at, ihe head of Pius IX. that she was interned a.t the rhateau of Tervucren, near j Brussels, and v.dien she. set it ablaze a few years later by lighting up her bedroom curtains she was sent to Bouchout. Tcrvneren and Bouchord both belonged fo> the la.te King of the Belgians, Leopold IL, the brother of the Empress. The Royal invalid knows nothing of the events of the last half-century, ami refuses to believe that her husband, whom she loved dearly, is dead. She lives in complete confinement, and her madness now is quiet and calm. When the Germans finally moved on to Btuss-cls they fixed a large poster on the outer gate, which reads as follows: —"This house is the property of the Belgain Crown, Tier Majesty the Empress of Mexico. Archduchess Maximilian of Austria, sister-in-law of Emperor Francis Joseph, our illustrious ally, lives in it. I rcnue-sfc German soldiers who pass here not t.a'rinrr ibis bell, and leave the place untouched."
