FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 14, 1880.
Cemaje in Sickness.
The Londen Lancet, in a few words of
geed advice te sick people, says : " With
the aid or under the influence of " pluck,"
using that term in a modern sense and in
relation te the daily heroism of life in the
midst of difficulties, it is possible net only
te surmount what appear te be insupera
ble obstructions, but te defy and repel the
enmities of climate, adverse circumstances
and even disease. Many a life has been
saved by the moral courage of a sufferer.
It is net alone in bearing the pain of oper eper oper
tiens or the misery of confinement in a sick
room this self-help becomes of vital mo
ment, but in the monotonous tracking of a
weary path and the vigorous discharge of
ordinary duty. Hew many a victim of in
curable disease has lived en through years
of suffering, patiently and resolutely hop
ing against hope, or, what is better, living
down despair, until the virulence of a
threatening malady lias died out, and it
Has ceased te be destructive, although its
physical characteristics remained ?
" This power of 'geed spirits' is a mat
ter of high moment te the sick and weak
ly. Te the former it may mean the ability
te survive, te the latter the possibility of
outliving, or living in spite of, a disease.
It is therefore of the greatest importance
te cultivate the highest and most buoyant
frame of mind which the conditions will
admit. The same energy which takes the
form of mental activity is vital te the work
of the organism. Mental influences affect
the system, and a joyous spirit net only re
lieves pain, but increases the momentum
of life in the body. The victims of disease
de net commonly sufficiently appreciate
the value and use of ' geed spirits.' They
tee often settle down in despair when a
professional judgment determines the ex
istence of some latent or chronic malady.
The fact that it is probable they will die
of a particular disease casts se deep a
gloom ever their prospect that through
fear of death they are all their liletime
subject te bondage.
"The multitude of healthy persons who
wear out their strength by exhaustive
journeys and perpetual anxieties for health
is very great, and the policy in wlncli tney
indulge is exceedingly sliert-signtcd.
Most of the sorrowful and worried crip
ples who drag out miserable lives in tins
way would be less wretched and live
longer if they were mere hopeful. It is
useless te expect that any one can be rea
soned into a lighter frame of mind, but it
is desirable that all should be taught te
understand the sustaining, and often even
curative, power of 'geed spirits.' "
The Danger or a Court Physician
It is a trite saying that " the Russian
government is a despotism tempered by
assassination." The remark is as bitterly
cynical as it is true. AH the history of that
country confirms it. But very few people
have reflected upon the dangerous position
occupied by the confidential physician of a
Czar. Until within a few years past that
physician was always a foreigner almost
invariably a German. The Germans in
Russia, in any official capacity, the old
Muscovite party hates, dogs them with
suspicieu, and would get rid of them by
fair means or foul if they dared. Dr.
Mandt, the private physician of the Czar
Nicholas, was a German. He has since
died, but has left behind him a detailed
account of the last hours of his imperial
patient and of his own personal peril.
When the Czar was taken ill the
fees of Mandt whispered about that
he would poison their master. Al Al
eost his only friends at court were
the Czar himself, his "seu Alexander and
the Grand Duchess Helena. He was an
object of the most violent dislike te her
husband, the Grand Duke Michael. One
day the latter called Mandt into a private
room. "I found him in the highest excite
ment," says Dr. Mandt. "I thought he
would seize me by the cellar, but my cool
ness seemed te make some impression upon
him, and he contented himself with shak
ing his fist in my face and exclaiming
'Traitor!'" An excited conversation
passed between them, and the prince end
ed by saying : "On that day upon which
the precious health of the Czar is endanger
ed by your treatment your learned head
shall hang upon your neck by the thinness
of a single thread," Nicholas himself
was worked up into a temporary suspic
ion of the fidelity of his doctor.
One day, upon feeling himself bet
ter, the Czar said : " Mandt, de you knew
that I believed yesterday that you were
bent upon poisoning me?" "I knew
it, sire," replied the doctor. " Then de
net forget," observed the emperor, " that
you have enemies here, aud many of
them." On the 22d of March, 1855, when
the death of the Czar was announced, the
wildest excitement prevailed. It was spread
abroad in all circles that the guilt of the
Czar's death lay at the deer of his Prus
sian doctor, and in the first burst of pas
sion Mandt's life hung, as it were, en a
thread. The danger was averted by the
new Czar Alexander, who had remained
throughout Mandt's steadfast friend. He
called the doctor into his presence, thank
ed him before the court for his care of. his
father, and piesented him with a geld snuff
box, richly setjwith diamonds. This evi
dence of imperial favor and confidence
closed the lips of Mandt's calumniators,
but could net change the feeling of hatred
of the Grand Duke Michael and the Mus
covite party toward Germans occupying
official positions at court and under the
government. That feeling continues te
Tbe Tower of Beauty.
The Fatal Influence of a Beautiful Weman.
Washington Ce.. St. Leuis Glebe-Democrat.
A most distressing affair recently oc
curred in the suicide of Capt. Edward
Wright, son of Judge "Jack" Wright,
who was recently convicted aud fined for
his assault en Secretary Delane, and then
graciously pardoned by the president.
Capt. Wright was one of the finest officers
of the ordnance corps, and his improve
ments and experiments in his line have
gained hira great credit. Twe years age
he met at tbe Arkansas Het Springs the
beautiful Bessie Paschal, daughter of a
noted Texas lawyer, and divorced wife of
Frank Gassaway. A mere fascinating and
lovely woman seldom seen than she, and
after a two weeks' acquaintance they were
married. Three months age they separa
ted and since then Capt. Wright has been
depressed and gloomy. After a painful
interview with her last week they parted
finally, she winging her way te Philadel
phia and fresh fortunes, and he end
ing his unhappy life by a pistol-shot
from his own hand. The career of his
wife has been something remarkable.
Seldom outside of novels and old me
moirs de we knew of a woman exerting
such power ever men by the mere spell of
beauty. Graybeards and callow youth
have worshipped he? and grave politicians
and professional men gene wild. As a
young lady she was a belle and as a lovely
widow she exerted a mere potent power.
Den Cameren atone time was announced
as about te marry her, and the list of his
comrades is a long'eno. A graceful and
perfect figure, great, sad, pathetic eyes,
fine features and a most lovely smile, first
impress one en seeing her, but the inde
scribable charm, the strange fascination of
her ways, the witchery and magic of her.
are tee evanescent and intangible for
prose. Her beauty, her life, and her for
tunes would need the worldly, gushing
pen of " Ouida " te portray some sides of
it ; for ethers the profound analysis of
Oreerge rJliett could hardly suffice. As a
figure in the social world she is destined te
reappear, and these who have watched the
amazing incidents of her life since she
first entered Washington a precocious
young witch of 15 will net be surprised at

Tuter. " Come, new, Mr. B , give
me a familiar example of Hogarth's line
of grace. Can't you think of it? It's a
curved article that you see every day."
Mr. B (desperately). "A a pret
zel." When a man's wife comes in and sees
him razor in hand, and with his face all
lather, and asks him, " Are you shaving ?"
it's a provoking thing in him te answer,
" Ne, I'm blacking the stove ;" but it's
human nature se te reply.
" New," said the examining physician
te the unhappy pilot, " you must pick out
all the reds you see." The pilot commenced
by grasping thelearned professor's nose,
which was worsted. "That will de," said
the professor ; " your certificate is ready."
' Is this my train ?" asked a traveller at
the Kansas Pacific depot of a lounger. " I
don't knew, but I guess net," was the
doubtful reply. "I see it's get the name
of the railroad company en the side, and I
expect it belongs te them. Have you lest
a train anywhere ?"
"My friends, "said the political speaker.
with a burst of ingenuous eloquence, " I
will be honest " There were a large
number of his neighbors present, and the
terrific outburst of applause which fol
lowed this remark entirely upset the
point which the orator was about te in
troduce. "Don't waste your time clipping off
the branches," said a woodman te his
son, ' but lay your axe at the root of the
tree." And the young man went out and
laid his axe at the root of the tree, like a
geed and dutiful boy and then went a
nshing. Truly there is nothing like filial
A lawyer was compelled te apologize te
the court. With stately dignity he rose
in his place and said : " Your honor is
right and I am wrong, as your honor gen
erally is" There was a dazed leek in the
judge's eye, and he hardly knew whether
te feel happy or fine the lawyer for con
tempt of court. i
That was a thoroughly characteristic
and sincere reply which a surprised saloon
keeper is reported as making the ether
day te a religious worker, who visited him
in his place of business, and asked him
whether he expected te go te heaven.
"Tope sure," he replied; "zum time;
American tradesmen who claim genius
for advertising should listen te a Berlin
grocer, who thus informs the public
through the Bersen Zeitung : "Twius

time a boy and girl. I entreat my friends
and patrons te support me stoutly. Ex

' My boys," said a strict churchwoman
te her children, at the beginning of the
recent Lenten season, "I should like very
much te have you deny yourselves some
thing during the solemn weeks of Lent.
Will you de it ?" " I will mamma," said
Johnny, a sedate child, who was very fend
of griddle-cakes ; "I'll de without my
cakes in the morning." "There's a geed
boy. And what will you give up, Harry?"
she asked of his little brother, a bundle of
the purest mischief that ever lived, who
was fend of play, but had no love for
books. "Oh, I'll give up going te school,
mamma, for my part," was his ready
Kisses In Return for Jewels.
Mr. Eddy gave Miss Hintzleman a fine
sjt of jewelry at Newbern, N. C, and slie
were it for several weeks. Then he brought
a suit te recover it en the ground that he
had simply lent it te her. She testified
that, by the terms of a mutual agreement,
she was te pay for the jewelry by kissing
Mr. Eddy every morning for a hundred
days. He called and get his kiss, en his
way te work, every day for about a month.
Then he grew bold and wanted te take a
hug as well as a kiss. There was no pro pre
vision in the bargain for hugging, and she
repulsed him, even restricting his kisses te
a mere touch of his lips te her cheek. He
thought he was being cheated and hence
his effort te recover.
Spain's "Peet of Liberty."
Emilie Castelar, the great republican
leader of Spain, and probably the most elo
quent man of the present age, was lately
tendered a reception by the Spanish acad
emy of Madrid, and responded in one of
these glowing orations which have made
his name famous all ever the civilized
world. He spoke of the characteristics of
the age, and, in the course of his eloquent
and highly idealized flights, contrasted the
Spanish with the Anglo-Saxen character.
The Spaniard's type he found in Den Quix
ote, the Saxen's in Robinson Crusoe.
Said he :
" Quixote is quite the contrary of that
Crusoe, who, without any native esprit, with
out any brilliancy of speech, without the
ardor of our southern fancies, wanting in
the treasures of our rich and gorgeous elo
quence, read but one book, the Bible,
turning ever its .leaves three times a day ;
an eternal navigator, like his Saxen and
Nerman ancestors, wanders without re
pose and hopelessly liipwrecks,s iving him
self by his hereditary virtues, by the
strength of his will, and solitary betaking
himself te a desert isle, where, seconded
alone by his geed sense and his industry,
trusting te himself alone, he procured all
the necessary instruments te overcome the
horrors of the climate with the efforts of
his prevision as the ancient explorer of the
United States, as the Puritans of the May
Flower ; and thus he leaves in prosaic ac
counts, in statistics full of figures, the
most aprepriate type of our age, the free
laborer and vanquisher of brute matter in
the most worthy legend of our century, in
the legend of labor."
He paid a glowing tribute te Mr. Lin
coln, " that engendered Puritan," as he
called'him, and spoke of the present a p-
parently prosaic age as being pervaded with
" the poetry of liberty." Certainly Caste
lar himself is at once the poet and the
prophet of liberty, and the best and most
consistent example of and argument for
the freedom of thought and action. He
is a simple and sincere man, and prac
tical withal, and his conception of free
dom never degenerates into license. He is
the most honest and clear-headed leader in
Spain, and if all were like him, the Spanish
repulbic might become the reality of his
beautiful dream. He lives a quiet, modest,
simple life in a circle of devoted friends,
frugal te himself, yet generous te all about
him, an early riser, an ardent student, and
a passionate believer in modern ideas and
