An interesting story is told of him in
this respect. Some years ago the late
Duke of Clarence locked his younger
brother out oT a room Into which he
particularly wished to enter. The Duke
of York, then Prince George, simply
hinted that if his brother did not open
the door he would quietly put his foot
through a panel of it. No heed was
paid to this threat, and after a lapse
cf a minute or two, Prince George pro-
ceeded to carry it into execution. After
this was done, conscience smote him
and he knew he would get into a
bother. So he oirtained the necessary
wood and set to work at once, planed
ano-her panel, put it in the door, got
the bright-colored paint to match the
other panels, and no one was any the
