THE ISLE OF ROSES.
2ow lovingly caressed and anon fiercely
LulTetcd by the waves of tlio Baltic, between
the coasts of Pomorania and Sweden, lies tbe
Danish island of Dornholm. It is little knowii
to the world, and the profusion of wild roses
indigenous to the place has acquired for it
the sobriquet of the isle of roses.
The environs of the little town of Allinge.
on thn northwest, are especially picturesque
and remarkable for the peculiar mildness of
their formation. Wc are here, suddenly ai.d
without any prelude, confronted with a mag
nificent natural panorama.
Making Allinge my starting point I ucd
often to visit the old castle. The road at first;
lies along the strand, then winding to the left
commences an ascent; after half an hour
spent in scrambling among the rocks the
'Vale of Paradise"' is attained. Through the
heart of the dell encircling the castle extends
a promenade whoso perfection of scenery
challenges imagination itself. The path on
both sides is bordered with lilacs and roses in
thick hedges, which grow to a sufficient
height to form a species of vaulted alley, rich
in fragrance, retaining its grateful shade and
coolness during the prevalence of extreme
A few paces through this Eden brings the
wand rer before the deep, placid languor of
the ocean. Masses of rock, cleft in rugged
wildness, form at once a small bay, and a fit
ting frame for so glorious a prospect.
I sought my favorite haunt one day w hon
the fierce heat of the sun's rays was untem
pered by a breath of air; but the rough
hewn bench under the gnarled oak, whence
the view extended to the distant sea, com
manding the course of passing ships, was
A girl busied with needlework was sitting
there. In my first surprise I fancied that I
beheld some apparition or wood nymph. It
was, however, no "unreal mockery," for tho
figure arose to its feet when my footsteps be
came audible. Standing there in all her mar
velous beauty, in a ilood of sunbeams, she re
sembled some goddess of the northern nryth-
ology. Tho garb of the country developed
freel3" the graceful symmetry of her tall,
blender figure, and lent a peculiar charm to
her appearance. The most striking feature
in this a L-iou was, however, the nobly mod
eled head, the expressive countenance encir
cled by a profusion of light, wavy hair, the
eyes shaded by dark lashes, blue and fathom
less as the ocean, their gaze now fixed upon
We stood silent for a moment, confronting
each other in mutual surprise, for neither of
us had dreamt of finding this solitude invaded
by another human being. Should I pass on
my v ay placidly or seek to enter into conver
sation? I hesitated. Every form of address
which first occurred to mo seemed bold and
inappropriate; 1 should havo preferred to con
tent myself with gazing at her and listening
to her voice. As it was necessar3 however,
to put an end to the situation one way or
another, ami vainly endeavoring to combat
tho ascendancy of tho girl's charms, I inquired
my way to tho little fishing village of Vang,
which I had long intended to visit
"Ah, you speak Danish," sho observcd,with
a friendly smile, for she had at onco set me
down as a foreigner. And then, with all the
charm of natural affability which character
izes her compatriots, she explained that the
way led me across the rocky strand. I noted
anew in her a peculiarity of the Bohemian
folic Avoiding all use of the expression right
or left, they refer invariably to the points of
the compass. She accompanied mo to a point
from v. hich I could not miss my way, and
wished mo a jileasunt walk at parting. This
meeting gave mo food for reflection during
the rest of my ramble.
What had caused me to tako so much in
terest in this gill.' Surely not her rare beaut'
alone. I iondered and pondered, and at
length believed I had found a clew. I had a
dim recollection of some tragic feature in her
face, such as nature bestows in many human
lwings, and now my mind's eye descried it
clearly and distinctly defined in the graceful
lines of her mouth. Besides this, her eyes
had a gaze full of dreanry tlioughtf illness, as
though the soul of the possessor dwelt in the
far distinct'. At all events, this maiden had
something unusual about her.
At Vang 1 entered the cabin of a fisherman
lo iKirtako of refreshments, as there was no
inn there, and mentioned my encounter, ask
ing, after giving a description of the girl, if
anylKxly knew her. At once came tho reply:
"Of course, that was our lovely Gudrun;
everybody on tho island knows her. A good
girl, but klarsynet (a clairvoyant), which,
however, is not unusual among our women."
"Ah!"' thought I, '-a clairvoyant. That ac
counts for the dreamy look in her eyes." And
tho weather beaten sailor added:
"She has occasioned her father, old Capt.
Torstcnsen, much grief already from this
cause. Sho wanders at night to the ruins of
llammershuus and talks w ith the spit its there.
But she w ill bo married soon. She is engaged
to Gunnar, tho pilot, who i due home shortly
in the Russian East Indiaman ihe Nautilus."'
On my departure tho old man refused my
proffer of remuneration convincing proof of
tho hospitality of the islanders. Ho accepted,
however, a few cigars, thanking mo hcaitily
wiih a grip of tho hand which I felt for simo
My interest in the girl increased. Did she
really, then, possess the gift of second sight?
And how did it find vent.' Musing over this
I set out on my return.
Thinking lo shorten 1113- journey I took a
bypath. "When I reached the old castle night
had already fallen. I found that 1 had lost
my way, and was soon utterly at fault. 1
wandered about among the rocks for a good
hour, and at last, in the distance, descried a
light which 1 made my Iwacon. It led me to
an isolated house. I knocked, w ith the inten
tion of asking the way. Tla door was
opened, and before me stood my beautiful
acquaintance of the afternoon.
This second meeting so sui prised mo that I
was at first unable to utter a word. At last
I cx.laiii3d my dilemma to Gudrun, who
kindly m ited me to enter. It was her fathers
house. The latter, a tall man of oT,, easilv
recognisable ;is a sailor, who had been much
of the world, gave me a friendly reception,
set some refreshments before mo, and pro
posed to accomiany me until I should rogam
my road. Thus, for the second time, lhad
asked the way of Gudnm. She referred to
this heivelf with some graceful jest, which
lent a fresh charm to her naturally thought
After this our meetings were more fre
quent: sometimes at tho house of her father,
who at limes accompanied me in my 1 ambles;
sometimes walking near tho old castle. One
day wo visited the ruins in company. We
clambered about over the ancient walls, Gud
nm proving herself an entertaining guide.
Sho was well acquainted with tlu lustory of
the castle, which liad been the ant ieat strong
hold cf Bornholm.
It was anotiior lovely afternoon. Loag
films of gossamer fioatod in the air: the sea
rose and fell with a gentle motion. We stood
upon a crumbled wall of the castle absorbed
m contemplation of the indescribable beauties ;
of the scenes Around us, fragrant ros ea-
twined with ivy. j
Suddenly Gudrun-tumeil to me and asked: !
' Do you believe in presentiments ani in reve
lations of tbe future T
She uttered the words hurriadlv and appar
ently after an internal struggle. "
I might almost do so," I nus.vered; "for I
have knows men who possessed the nuhappv
gift of foreseeing their destiny, and this was
always of a mournful kind."
1 had never made any mention to Gudnm
of th information which had been imparled
to me at Vang with reference to her ixsculiar
ity. TFtbIt an u::haiv. rift'" she naiik!. J

am so unhappy! Oh, I know that I shall die
soon. This is the third time that I havo ece:i
it They are calling me, the spirits of the
deep. But, come; evening is closing in and
you must not lose your way again."
I accompanied her to the house, striving tc
dispel her dismal forebodings. But she only
shook her head thoughtfully. At her door
she turned. ' Good night and au revoir," she
said, looking mournfully at me; and I took
my leave, strangely affected by her mood.
The day breaks dull and temestuous. Dark
clouds are scudding athwart the sky. On the
sea the storm rages in uncertain gusts. The
waters rise up and lash themselves in fury,
and long foam-crested chains of mountain
billows hurl with a mighty crash against the
rock-bound coast. The island seems to
tremble to its very foundations. "God pro
tect our mariners,'" is the thought of every
islander. My room in Mardier's commands a
view of both sea and town. The latter is a
small place built upon the strand. The
streets are deserted as the rain descends in
The storm increases to a hurricane. In the
harbor seamews flew hither and thither ut
tering discordant cries which are drowned in
tho roar of tho tempest; and tho thunder of
So pass morning and afternoon. The hur
ricane still rages with unabated vehemence.
The lantern is already alight in tho neighbor
ing lighthouse at Hammerberg. Several fish
ermen are busy in the harbor trying to make
their boats, which arc dancing about like
nutshells, more secure from risk or injury.
But hark! A dull, brief Teport resounds
above the din of the tempest and tho tunnoil
of the waters This is no thunder of tho
waves; it is a cannon shot. Wo hear it once
more, and then repeated at shorter intervals.
Men congregate at tho harbor's mouth, and a
large telescope is procured. But no ship is
yet visible; tho horizon is too circumscribed.
Thus half an hour passes away. A.I Allinge
is on tho alert. People unite in groups to dis
cuss the plight of the devoted vessel. I find
myself attached to one of these knots. 2Cow
it may be about 5 o'clock something black
becomes visible against tho background of
Hammerberg. It draws nearer and becomes
plainer we distinguish a ship.
A sudden flash, quickly followed by a re
port, gives a renewed intimation that the ves
sel is in distress. But who can render any
aid? The coast is precipitous, and wild, un
even crags jut out far into the ocean. The
sea is so rough that no boat could live in it.
The danger becomes more and more immi
nent The craft, a brig already berefc of its
mainmast, must strike. It is hopelessly lost.
In tho excitement of the awful moment I
had been unconscious as to my immediate
surroundings. Suddenly, quite close to me,
I heard a cry full of despair, a soul stirring
It was Gudrun, who stood wringing her
hands, her fallen tresses a prey to tho blast.
"Tho Nautilus Gunnar!" -ho cried in her
anguish. "Save him 1113 love!"
The doomed ship was none other than that
which bore her betrothed homeward. Men
ran to and fro with confused cries, but no one
ventured to tho rescue. "It would only be
tempting Providence," declared a venerable
sailor, and he added, uncovering his head in
all reverence: "The Lord of heaven and earth
deliver them." All the bystanders followed
his example and united in tho prayer.
Gudrun nished from group to group, im
ploring, supplicating, wringing her hands,
but nobody ventured to court certain death.
Suddenly Capt. Torstcnsen, her father, ap
peared upon the scene, wearing a "sou'wes
ter" and long sea boots.
"Who will como with me?" ho asked in a
clear, resonant voice. He met with no re
sponse. Some attempted to pcrsuado him
from his enterprise, even resorting to force.
The most experienced sailors regarded it as
madness to attempt to navigate in such a sea.
"Then I shall try it alone," he declared,
hurrying toward his boat. Two young men
followed him, at first doubtful!-; then, ad
jured by Gudrun, determined to join him in
the desperate venture.
A rush was made for tho landing where the
boats were lying. Torstcnsen could scarce
stand upright in his boat, but for all that ho
cast oil' the painter. And now, just as tho
men were in the act of pushing off, Gudrun
leaped into the boat. A cry of terror rose
from a hundred throats-. Many women were
weeping. The boat heeled over, and the oars
men w ore evidently striving to put back with
Gudrun. A receding wave, however, carried
thi' boat rapidly out of the harbor.
Tho crowd stood breathless; not n word
was spoken. Allc-es were centered on the
boat, which appeared 011 the loft- summit of
a wave, onl- to disappear next moment in
tho trough of the sea. Gudrun's fair locks
were floating in the wind like a cloud fleck.
The minute guns had long ceased to echo from
Darkness sot in and they had not returned.
Nothing further was seen of the ship. Night
fell. The storm raged on, the waves still
battled Tercel-, and out yonder those who
were meeting their doom drew their last
Unheard? No. There is 0110 who listens
The people of Allinge passed a sleepless
night. for me, I pondered over Gudnm's
words of tho previous day: "Do you hear?
Oh. 1 know 1 shall die soon!"
Onco more day dawned, but the morning
was bright and sunny. Tae storm had sub
sided. Men were searching the shore. All
that remained of the brig was a shattered
wreck wedged in lwtween the roclts. Hero
and there a Lody was lying drowned on tho

THE LAW OF f,T::t CODE."
Choice of TTcapons Practicing "With Pis
tols Tho Imclist Dress.
The co lo lays down methodically the law
as to what constitutes an aggressor. If in a
quarrel brought about by a discussion an in
sult "arrives," tho person insulted is the
aggrieved part 7; if, however, the insult is
repaid by a blew positions are changed. A
mere touch is Iwld to be a blow.
There are grievances and grievances.
First, the grievance simply; next, grievance
with insult; thirdly, grievanco with blow or
wound. Tho position of tho aggrieved per
son differs in the three cases. As simply ag
grieved he has the choice of weapons; ag
grieved and insulted, ho has tho right to
choose the manner of duel as well as the
arms; aggrieved and struck, ho chooses his
duel, Ids arms, his distances, and can deny to
h.'s adversary tho use of familiar weapons.
The only recognized legal weapons at present
are held to be the sw onl, pistol and sabre.
Any other can be accepted only upon mutual
agreement Unless otherwise arranged by
tho seconds, a duel should always take place
within forty-eight hours. Once on tho
ground the adversaries must hold no commu
nication with each other, all must bo done
through the seconds. If one man falls
w ounded he may still fire on his adversary,
if he can do so within two minutes. After
that this privilege ceases to exist.
If a challenge has been made and accepted,
the parties generally put themselves under
immediate training. The best pistols are se
cured, and tho combatants go out daily, each
with a few friends, practicing, generally tak
ing a sapling as a mark. Whoever can hit
it easily is considered a good shot. The next
step is to accustom the nerves to the shock of
firing. Many men fire quite well when they
are shooting alone, but the crack of a gunshot
by another startles them considerably, so as
to drive them wide of the mark. To this
crack they must becomo thoroughly accus
tomed. For that purpose cork balls are used
in the daily practice. Mock seconds are put
in proper places, and a mock opponent is
placed opposite. The word is given and they
fire. This is generally kept up for days but
as some waver still a little four or five friends
go out with either of tho combatants and then
place themselves round each, some before,
some back and some in front of their man.
As tho word is given are you ready pre
pare fire they all blaze away, and gener
ally before tho bewildered man shoots. Ho
soon, however, learns to aim as well amid tho
confusion and noise as if he were alone. Tho
practice is generally wound up by having
heavily charged guns fired in tho face of tho
duelist to make his nerves perfectly steady.
There is also a great deal in tho dress.
Every object, such as a button or breastpin,
or anything which makes a contrast, should bo
carefully removed. Some are having a special
duelist dress made, consisting of a large, light
morning wrapper, made as near tho color of
tho earth as possible. This wrapper is
starched, so that an antagonist cannot fix his
sight upon a particular spot, and as it bags
out he may bo liable to mistako the true posi
tion of tho body in it. New York Star.
Ilest Horse Feed in tho World.
The Californinns carry their own forage
with them. They have the bestf racehorse
feed in the world. Their white oats are
about the color of silver, the grain is line
and heavy, weighing forty-four pounds to
the bushel, while the average weight is
tliirty-two pounds. Our oats average
thirty-six pounds. The Californians don't
feed limot hy hay, but use a sort of wild
grass with a heading very much like wild
oats. It is cut green and cured, making
better hay for horses than timothy.
