THE TWO LIVES. PRINCE AND PEASANT.
FROM THE GERMAN.
A few years ago, a joiing Russian
Prince, handsome, ritli, of line eiilti'fre,
;inil an unliable character, -visited tlio
batlis of Liebenstein, in TIiurinria. He
led a quiet and feeludcd life, avoided
fashionable society) and passed much o
his:timein solitary rambles 'about the
hills and woot!s. One 'day, lost in
thought, ho was slowly sauntering near
the ruins of an old castle, which stood
among trees ajiart from the highway,
Then his attention was "arrested by a
pleasant voice calling to him from be

peasant girl'stenping briskly along'thc

"She shall lean her ear
In nianyasecrct place.
Whcic rivulets dance theirwnyward round
And beauty born of lnurmuriug sound ,( 1

ut being a Russian Prince, he onl vsaid
iuiself, "Vhat a beauty slmis!?'
Thuringiau lashion, she wore a gay-
colored kerchief, wrapped-turban-like
about.her head, concealing .lierlusuri-

was already turningaway. when the

courteously .banked her lor lier trouble.

answered with 'a pleasant'siuile; "it

Alexander 'was not slow to obey.
There was something in bis uncle's tone
and- manlier which made him feel un
comfortable, and he was glad to make
his way.to the little cottage where. his
quick.eye had seen the peasant girl and
her parents enter on their return from
chureli. The family were just sitting
down to their simple noonday 'meal ;
and he would1 haV'fnrncd away, 'for
fear of causing aririoyancc, had not the
daughter caught' sigliti-ofthim. Her
parents made him heartily .welcome,
and .Marie he now heard her name for
the first time placed 11 chair for bim'at
(he table. Simple as the meal was, the
Prince thought he' had never made so
pleasant 'a' dinner. lo was charmed
witli the sterling good sense and frank
ness of the". Old people, whqsc respectful
tlermland'r niid'noiliirig seVvilc or fawning;-and
as for Marie, she -was all grace
and. perfection iu the eye of her adoring
lover. After dinner, coffee was served
in;tlie little garden : and there they sat
n delightful conversation until Alex
ander was compelled "to keep his en
gagement' with Ms uncle.
"Is that the yonng woman ?" asked
uucle Dimitry, later, in'theday, catcli-
ncablush on hit nenhew's. cheek, as
Marie and her parents passed them, 01
their way to afternoon service. "I must
say" you show good taste. How. long,
pray, have you' known this' wild flow
" Since yesterday ,'' replied Alexander,
with a conscious look.
" Since yesterday !" repeated the un
cle in astonishment; "and to-day court
ing in church, and a long visit at the
boose!1 Quick work, I must fcay.' Your
father wouldn't believe it, if I were to
tell him; and to tell you the truth, I
Iiarilly lielicvo it yet myself, you scape
Angered by the sneering tone in which
these words were spoken, and still more
by their implied slur ou'Maf ie, Alex
ander 'would have made a stinging re
tort; but'Iie was able to master Insin
uation, apd refrain from words that
might recoil nponihis beloved. Happily
his uncle maintained his resolution, and
that evening departed for Baden-Baden
leaving Alexander to make the best use
of his opportunities. The' Prince was.
not a dilatory lover. He made himself
it home iu his eyes more precious than
nalaccrand in order to be constantly
n'ea'r'jl'a'rie lie1 even' go into the
fields, where she' and her parents were
at work, and take part' in their labor.
It made people stare' to see, a Prince so
madly in love with ,a simple peasant
irl; and many shook their beads, and
;iid it would turn out liadly, while
others calicd'her a sly schemer, or some
thing worse. But these were, for' the'
most part, fashionable women, with
marriageable daughters, who, thought it
dreadful thing for a Prince tobeialove
ith a peasant. Xobody had the cour
age to remonstrate with him;, aud if
any one had done, so, it, wpuld only
have increased his love for larie.
The strangest part of the; affair. was
that llaria herself was all this while
ignorant of her conquest. She never
.suspected the Prince o loving her. The
rich patients at a' small watering-place
like'Licbcnstein arte apt to do strange
things to pa93 away the time, and she
thought' it. nothing extraordinary that
the .Prince, who bad. nothing else to do,
should amuse himself with amateur far
ming. She,kncw that he liked her, and
that it was to both a pleasure to be to
gether; of a warmer feeling she never
dreamed, But the time came when she
was'-undeceivcd. ' One Sunday evening,
after church, she and-the' Prince were
sitting together iu the cottage garden,

"TTour wife! O, sir, what nave I

Alexander drew' tbe trembling girl

that'the marriage should' be celebrated

matter; they were not supposed to have

The wrath of "Prince Michael, when
his wife, timidly and with many mis
givings, gave into liis hands"the letter
in which Alexander declared his love
for Marie, and begged permission 'to
inake.ber his wife,, was something in
describable. He .raved for an hour, like
a madman; and then dispatched a fu
rious letter to his son,eiiclosed in one to
Dimitry, in which he commanded hi:
brother to bring Alexander home with
Dimitry at once, obeyed. Without
losing. an, hour he hastened back to Eie
bensteiu, and immediately sought his
nephew's lodgings. Alexander was
away; but there was trusty old Peter.
who'had tended him as a child and al
ways-accompanied himon his travels.
" What, iu ,heaven'3 name, has come
over jour master?" exclaimed Dimitry,
taking the old man roughly by the
shouIder,,for he was'tborougbly "excited
and alarmed. ,
"Tleaveifonly knows! I'm sure I'm
not to blame. How could I help his

" 1" don't know. He is always good

Still undecided what course to pursue
order to break the news of his father's
anger to the weak-minded uoj', lor sucn
he thought him, Dimitry allowed old
P,etr to guide.him to the lield where
his nephew, Marie and her father were
work. Alexander was the first to
perceive his axiproach. With a sad.fore
boding at his heart, the ,young. man
srreeted his uncle in a manner that at
tracted others' attention. Marie's .lov
ing heart also divined something wrong,
and she came instantly to his side'. "Fol
low me to your mother's," hesaidgent-
lv: "this is mv uncle Dimitry. He
bring3 news from my father."
The good mother met them at the
door. Dimitry greeted her with the ut
most courtesy : her line intelligent fea
tures, and the worth expressed in her
kindly eyes, made a deep impression on
him. "I'am heartily sorry J",liesaid,'al-

your .daughter I begin to understand,
entreated bis parents to consent to

"I expected this,'! replied the mother
simply, but witli true sorrow in her
voice, "and have often toldyournephew
that it must be so. It is ndt possible
that a rich Prince should let his son
marry a' poor' peasant girl. If I have
him be with my daughter every day,
to use our house as his owii, it whs
because 'I could trust them both, and
they were so liappy together ,that I
could hot bear to part them. Alas! I
afraid I have done wrong, for they
love each otlier too well, and it will.be
hard for them to part."- '
Alexander and Marie jsat neaY to
gether ; but neither spoke a word nor
looked at the other. ' :
Dimitry looked with true; astonish
ment at the simple-heartetl'woman, and
sentiment of respect and admiration
stirred his heart as lie listene-i to her
words. "You' are' the beslr woman I
ever saw," he said, warmly pressing
"and what you- haye said
makes' my errand harder than ever. If
thought my brother could be persua
to rclent-but it Is useless to speak
tliat. Alexander, here is j-onr fa
ther's letter, read it for yourself."
icy shudder ran through tlie young
man's heart as his eye glanced rapidly
the contents of, the letter. " O,
ppt)! I, have not deserved this!" he
cried, ,our, springing to his feet. "My
father's curse, if ,1 marry you!"
He fell unconscious at Marie's feet.
Very tenderly ,'very sorrowfully, the
women raised him from the floor
laid him on the bed. Marie bathed
temples with cool water, and old
Peter went oft' on tho run for.a physi
cian. A Idng fever succeeded, during
which Marie anil'her mother never left
bedside except to catch short inter
vals of needed rest. Weeks passed be
he came to jiiraself. The tirst face
saw.was-his mother's; .their he saw
she was sitting handin.hand with

marriage bad been given.

Northern Ohio Lunatic
Loss to the State About
Heartrending Scenes Among
A fire broke out iu theXorthern Ohio
Lunatic. Asylum at Xewburgh about
one o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Sept.
2jth,and,inJlve hours almost the en
tire 'buildinglwas.In .ruins. The fire
was discovered in the cupola on the cen
tral wing. A couple of carpenters wer
employed in placing a lantern upon the
top of the cupola, which is tbe highest
point of the bnildingybeing 31-1 feet
from the ground. Xear the the cupola,
about, ten feet distant, two tinners were
employed in making repairs to the roof,
and were the first to discover the lire.
The central portion of the asylum.
was erected by the State in the years
1851-3, and'received its first patients in
the latter year. -The institution at that
time was only about one-quarter of its
present dimensions, and capable of ac
commodating about one hundred pa
tients. About six years after the com
pletion of the central building, two
wings were placed on the east and west
ends, increasing the capacity of the in
stitution to 375. Three ycara aso the
Legislature appropriated $150,000 for
making still further additions, and last
year two new wing.s were completed,
increasing tlie capacity of the institu
tion to o2o. A rear portion was also
omit last year, containing kitchens, en
gine rooms, etc. Last winter the Legis
lature appropriated $15,000 for making
repairs 111 the old wards and the older
portions of the building had just been
put in good condition, and repairs on
djlrerentf arts of .-the building were still
being; jnade,.! The; central portion of
the building was used as offices, parlors,
reception rooms, officers rooms, c.,and
the west wing was divided into wards
for the accommodation of the females
and the cast wing for the males. The
building was four stories high, and
built of stone, having a front of 835
