HOW HUMBOLDT SECURED A
The approaching total disnppcnr-
,nneo of tlio Mulilcndainm in Berlin',
a rntlicr curious and ill-reputed
quarter of tho Prussian capital, .be
Hide being tho central scat of tho
'Old Clo's," recalls a littlo story of
which no less a person than Alexan
t der, von Humboldt is tho hcroi
"While passing through thoro on a
raw nftornoon in October in 184G ho
found himself suddenly accosted by
a, half-doon cntorpiising peddlers,
offering their cast-off goods to him
in tvo most eloquent and persuasive
terms. Wrapped in thought, thoir
offers, nnd entreaties would' havo
been lost Upon him hndv not some
salesman more cogcr than tho roat,
'plo'd him by tho coat nnd held up
a green velvet vest "as good as new"
'to tho nmazed savnnt's gaze. Hum
boldt shook his head, but on perceiv
ing n pair of old pistols inlaid with
mothcr-ol-pcnrl, ho approached tho
"stand and asked tho price. "Ten
thalcrs and dirt cheap nt that. Paid
nino for them myself, nnd that with'
repairs nnd interest makes just ten
thafcri." Humboldt put down two
Fricdrichs-d'or'took the change, nnd
carried off his exceptionally cheap
(acquisition enveloped in' a dingy
Hheot of paper, torn from alt old book.
On his way he happened to look at
thq wrapper and discovered it to bo
n treasure fnr more valunblc than tho
pistols. It was a leaf from a
mcdircvnl "herbarium." Instantly he
retraced his steps in search of the
seller, and more particularly in thnt
of tho remainder of the book. Im
possible for him to find either seller
or shop despite of numcious
inquiries. Tho antiquaries suspect
ed him of having rued of his bargain,
nnd with laudable esjmt de corps
'refused to betray one another.
Humboldt, no less keen, finally
romnrked: 'Pity! I cannot find my
man. Ho gave mo back n thaler
too much, nnd I cninc to return it."
Ho was quickly surrounded by
twenty or thirty dealers, each ono of
whom noisily asserted himself to bo
"his man.,' Ho became foirly
frightened and nt last pointed the
pistols at thntn. Instantly tho
crowd dispersed, save on individual,
,whq sjjly grinned at him, and said:
''No powder nor balls in cither of
them, I know! Put them quietly by,
my good sir, and give me my thaler."
The real seller was found. Hum
boldt went into his shop, discovered
tho ancient paichnicut-tonio, a rare
specimen, with but few leaves mis
sing. Touched by his purchaser's
preteuded honesty, "Old Clo," de
sirous of appouring no less generous
on his part, pullcu down an old pair
of pants, threw them on tho book
nnd said: "I'll lot yon havo tho
book ntibur thalcrs with those pants
thrown in, which a nice old gentle
man liko yourself may yet wear
many n Sunday!' Tho bargain was
finally closed on that basis, Hum
boldt, however, rufusing to accept
tho pants. Ho carried off tho book
' and pistols, and on showing his
literary tiposures to friends in after
ycursp often smilingly alluded to tho
"Sunday pants thrown in." Ameri'
