Like all true sons of Erin, the young marquis of
Waterford, head of the great Irish house of Beresford, is disposed to be
superstitious. He gave rather amusing illustration of this peculiarity the other
day on the occasion of the birth of this son and heir, says Mainly About People.
He owns a fine house in Cavendish square, which unfortunately bears the number
of "13." and so alarmed was he lest this unlucky number should cast a
blighting influence on the so-called happy event that he actually leased for a
couple of months another furnished house in the same square where the birth took
place. Young Lord Waterford, who is a nephew of Admiral Lord Charles Beresford,
married a year ago the pretty daughter of the marquise of Landsdowne, now
secretary of state for war.
