THE FATAL HELMETS.
A Gallic Legend.
It was on a dark" evening In the month of
Febniiry, ISH, that two horsemen, claJ in
complete anno:, and mounted on fleet and
powerful chargers, roilo rapidly toward one
of the gates of the city of Paris. They
were vouns and gallant knights, favorites
oi Charlemagne, and now, bound for the
ancient palace of Thcrnics, with scaled dis
patches for Its fccncschal.rromthc new mon
arch, Louis, the brother and successor or
the great Kmperor.
"Look, Itaoul!" "id one of the riders,
Robert dctiucrcy, addressing his compan
ion, Kaoul de L, "the clouds hac lifted
a little, and through a rent iu the murky
canopy of heaven, one star beams out, a
presage of good fortune."
Ay, Kobcrt," replied his brother in arms
"and racthlnks I behold, rising In the dis
tance, the hoa'ry battlements and time-worn
towers ol the old palace. Dearer to me
than old Homan pile, in all its rude severity
than the laircst citadel of other lands for
is it not the botver of mylady-loe, 1'otrudc
tbo peerless i"
"Not peerless!" answered Do Outrcy;
"jou forget hcrkistcr Uisla."
"They arc twin stars ofbcatitj," fald
Koaui; "worthy of the blood that courses
in their teius worthy sisters of the impcri.il
"What think jou the new monarch will
say to our attachment?"
"I know not. 1 have not learned to rii-wi:
his chiracltr. Hut I fear for his aunlcrity
and pride. Yet a Illtlo while, Kobert, mu-t
our loves be hidden. Wo have wooed and
won our tni-trcsses in setrct let us still
shroud our passion iu the veil or mji-Uiy
Tbe hour will tome, believe me, when wc
can avouch it in the face ofdaj. When wc
have carved our fortunes with our swords,
and earned with our blood the highest hon
ors of chivalry, each can iliim tho liiud nf
an Kmperor's sister as hi guerdon. Hut
here wo arc at the gale."'
Uaisiug his bugle to his lips HaouI blew
a vigorous and martial bla-d. The gate was
opened, and the knights, setting spurs to
their horses, da-died under the archway ,the
flambeaux of the guard throwing a ruddj
light upon their gleaming armor and while
plumes. Itccognbing the companions as
rojal messengers, a few cavaliers mounted
in haste, and offered their escort as far as
the palace of Tlierinc--.
The party gallopped on at lull speed, the
iron-shod feet of the horses dashing fire
from the stones that lay scattered in the
narrow, unpaved and ill-kept street. At
length thej-reached tho old palace, where
the knichts dismissed their c-corts. The
seneschal, an old man whose white beard
descended halfway to his girdle, received
them with the honors due to couriers from
the Emperor, and gave orders that their
chargers should be cared for, while he him
self marshalled the way into a long, vaulted
hall, vvainscolted with oak, upon the walls
of which hung panoplies of arms and ban
ners of nil nations, many of them wrested
rom the origiual possessors by the gallant
ry of Charlemagne. Yet it was a dreary
place, and the night wind that found iu
way through the loop-holes, swayed the
rustling banners to and fro, vvilh a dismal
moaning 'sound, like Ihat of the voice of
the prophet of cv il. The old seuechal hav
iug conducted tho knights thus far, halted
and said :
"You are from Aix-Ia-Chapclle J"
"Y'cs," said Itaoul. "And wc have rid
den all the way on the spur, securing fresh
horses all along the route. I know not how
my companion feels he will answer for
himself but for ow u part, I am as vv cary.in
limb as after a day spent In lopping off
heads upon a field ol battle. Hut a venison
paty and a flagon of wine before rctirin
to rest would not come amis. Whit say
"I have made no vow of abstinence, or I
might be tempted to break it, for my ucccs.
sitlcs arc great," answered Guercy.
"But jour dispatches, noblo Knights,"
said the seneschal.
"lly the mass! I had almost forgotten,"
said Uaoul, producing the packet from ljls
breast. "Here is tho" misiv e, icalcd vvv ll-
the imperial arms," and he placed it in the
hand of the old man.
The aged seneschal carefully broke the
seal, and, unfolding the parchment, he
began to read the contents. Thejoung
knights watched the countenance and saw
surprise depicted in his features. When
he had read every word, tho tcnc-ebal rais
ed his head, aud addressing the bearer of
the dispatch said :
"You aro named Uaoul de Lysr"
Uaoul inclined his head.
"And you?" the seneschal continued,
turning to the second knight.
"My name Is Hubert de Guercy."
"Then, llohcrtdc Gtiercj and Kaoul de
Lys," said the seneschal, "I arrest j-oti
"By whose authority J" demanded Kioul,
"By tho Kmperor's," replied the sene
schal, striking the parchment vvilh bis with
The two knights looked at each other in
astonishment. , t t , ,, .
"You will surrender. our sword-i" said

sadly. "What may be the i-sue of this al
fair, Heaven only can decide."
The seneschal departed with his other
prisoner, and Kaoul dc Lys heard the door
barred and locked behind him. Throwing
himself upon an oaken bench, he reflected
painfully upon the sndflcn change VTbich
bad fallen on his fortunes. A few days
sivre, he was a laTorltcofthegreatcsl mon
arch of the earth ; now, he was a prisoner
by the command of his successor. A few
moments before, be looked forward to a
rapturous meeting with Kotrudo; now he
was icparatcd from her, and perhaps forev
er. As these painful thoughts pissed thro'
his mind, the iron tongue of the belfry of
St. James struck 12; a secret door sprung
open on Its hinges, and Hobcrt de Guercy,
holding a lamp in his hand, and followed
by a female figure, entered the hall. Itaoul
started to his feet.
"Uaoul! brother! Mend!" cried the
knight. "Wc must up aud act. The Em
peror has doomed us to perpetual Imprison

Robert de Guercy pointed to the shi Ink

Uaoul, furiously; "it would have beeii bet;

"Here, Uaoul," answered the son voice
of a glorious, dark-eyed creature, who glid

arms of ber lover.
Glsla wrung ber bands and wept.
"Fie, sister!" said Uotrude, turning from
tbe embrace of Uaoul. "These tears are
unworthy of a lister of Charlemagne the

"More than life!" replied Uobert and
"And you are not disposed to be cruel !"
asked Louis, turning to tbe two sisters.
Their blushes answered in the affirma

did you not make a confidant ot me, and
treat me as a friend and brother? You

The sisters obeyed.
Kaoul was astonished.
"Can I have heard aright!" he exclaimed
"Does your majesty really intend to bestow
on poor knights the sisters ot your majesty?"
'II you live," replied the monarch, "ye
shill wed them ere tbe morning dawns.

a 'sovereign's favor can never be called

of tome malev olent genius, was contained in
each helmet, the operation ofvvhich exclud

was gripped as iu an iron vise and life was
"pcedily extinguished. Ixjuis had probably
decided that the mere fact of two humble
knights aspiring to wed the sisters of their
sovereign, was sufficient to merit death;
speedy and effective. Of the two sisters,
Gisla died on the spot, on discovering her
lover's death. Kotrude, removed to a con
vent by order of the Emperor soon lost her
reason, and died also, in the course of a lew
weeks, a raving maniac.
Many, many years afterward, when the
old palace was crumbling away, two suits ol
armor were brought to light, inclosed in a
secret chamber. On examination, a skele

THE EARTH'S POPULATION.
For more than half the people of the globe
no official census has been taken, but, from
previous estimates, we are able to calculate
quite closely the number of bumau bIngs
who are to-day dwellers or wanderers upon
the surface or this planet. Modern civiliza
tion, its railways, steamship lines, and tele
graphs, has rendered it possible for the in
habitants of the world to live better and so
prevent extensive lamilie. The present
birth rate exceeds the death rate, and the
population of the earth now seems to be In
creasing at rate oi aoout luineeu miuioui
year. In all new countries tno numucr oi
males largelyjexceed the females. Illinois
has nearly one hundred thousand more males
than females, while In an eqally great popu
lation in New England the rcterse of this is
true. In Oriental countries the numbei of
women does not equal tbe number of men.
Taking the entire population of the world
there is supposed to be about one per cent.
more males than females. At the rate of in
crease iu tbe United states the population of
the world would be growing at the rate of
fllty millions a year, but we have a large ac
cession by immigration.
The following table exhibits the present
population of the world :
Australia and Polynesia...
rtb and South America
For tbe entire land area of the globe the
population averages twenty-eight to the
square mile. Africa is as densely peopled
as the United States. For the same area.
Euro.ic has a population six times as dcne
as that in the United States. The mot
densely peopled State In the United Stales
is Massachusetts which has 22G persons to
the sou ire mile. France has only 130, hog-
land has 445, and Belgium, the most dense
ly peopled country of Europe, is now esti
mated to have BOO persons to the square
mile. If New York bad as dense a popula
tion as England it would provide homes for
one-balf tbe present population of this
country, and if our whole country was as
tensely populated as Belgium, Us popui.v
lion would equal the present population of
tbe globe. There Is a limit bejoud which

It is well known that the wrought-stono
implements found In the ancient river grav
els ol California prove conclusively that
during or before the glacial period the Pa
cific coast was inhabited by man. In a re
port ou archaeological explorations in Kan
sas, Judge E. P. West, of that State, pre
sented a large amount of evidence to show
that at an cquilly remote period that region
was peopled by a race compared with which
the mound builders must be acceunted
The geology of the region is simple. Pri
or lo the drift epoch the rlverchanncls were
lower. Subsequently the valleys were filled
by a lacustrian deposltof considerable depth
In or beneath this last deposit the remains
of au extinct race occur.
Such remains have been found at various
depths in seven different counties along or
near the Kansas Pacific railroad, namely,
Douglas, Pottawatomie, Kilcy, Dickinson,
Marion, Ellsworth and Lincoln counties.
With one exception, the remains have all
been found on the second bottom or terrace
of streams, and consist of6tone implements,
pottery, human bones and bone Implements
In most cases they were struck In digging
wells at a depth of from twenty to thirty
feet below the surface. In view of tbe fact
that there is not more than one well to the
square mite in the counties named, and the
area of a well forms but a very small frac
tion ol a square mile, Judge WeBt thinks
the evidence already obtained not only suf
ficient to prove the former existence of tbe
buried race, but to prove that tbey were
very uumcrous. We can hardly assume
that chance has directed the digging of wells
only where human remains are buried.
Whether the race existed before tbe gla-cl-il
epoch, or immediately after It, is too
early to determine. Judge west is inclined
to fix their time ol occupancy as after tho
glacial epoch and prior to the deposition of
the Ices. In calling upon tbe local newspa
pers of Kansas to lay tho facts before the
people and urging the propriety or ssving
such remains when found, and noting care
fully the conditions under which they oc
cur, the judge says:
"Here we have a buried race enwrapped
In a profound and startling mystery a race
whoso appearance and exit in th world's
drama precede the stupendous geological
changes marking our continent, and which,
pcrhapV.required hundred of thousands
of years in their accomplishment. The
prize is no less than determining when this
my-terious people lived, how they lived,
when they passed outof existence, and why
they became extinct." Scientific America.
LINCOLN ON THE LIFT.
Few arc aware or tbe physical strength
possessed by Mr. Lincoln. In muscular
power be was one in a thousand. One
morning while we were sitting on deck, he
saw an ax In a docket on thebulwarks, and
taking it up, held it at arm's length, at the
extremity or the helve, with his thumb and
forefinger, continuing to hold it for a num
ber o( minutes. The most powerful sailors
on board tried in vain to imitate him. Mr.
Lincoln saidhe could do this when he was)
eighteen years of age, and had never seen
a day since that time when he could not.
It occurred to me, when reading the de
tails of the plot that terminated la t
death or the President, that his abduction,
which waa at one time proposed by the
conspirators, would have resulted very dis
astrously to those" who should have had the
temerity to undertake' it. The pbus pro

The number of Buddhists is doubtlc-s the
same now as the number of all the Christian

clines to the opinion that "tho Buddhist re
ligion still occupies the nrst place In the re
ligious census of mankind," 450,000.000 now
owning Buddhism as their religion.
Mohammedanism prevails In Arabia, Por
tia, and in portions or India, Asia Minor,
Turkey and Egypt. Its greatest conquests
to-day are among the heathen population ol
Africa, and recent travelers, among them
Sir Samuel Baker and Colonel Long, are of
the opinion that the regeneration of Africa
depends more upon the universal adoption
of Mohammedanism than upon any Hung
Christianity is the prevailing religion In
Europe and America, and its missionary
stations are established aud doing aggress
ive work in all parts of tbe world. There
arc to-day 450,000,000 or people living Iu

testants and members or the Greek church.
Max Muller observed that "the threo reli
gions that are alive, and between which the
decisive battle for the dominion of tho world
will have to be fought, are the three mis
sionary religions, Buddhism, Mahammedan-
ism and Christianity. This holy war oi
mankind is being fought at present with lit
tle effects. To convert a Mohammedan is
difficult; to convert a Buddhist more didl
cult still ; to convert a Christian, let us hope,
well nigh impossible.
A NOBLE REVENGE.
Evil Not the Best Way to Right a Wrong.
The coffin was a plain one a poor, miser
able pine coffin. No flowers on the top ; no
lining of white satin from the pale brow ;
no smooth ribbons about the coarse shroud.
The brown hair was laid decently back, but

smiled In her sleep; she had found bread,

We have bad upon our table for tome
weeks an article headed "Are Kich Men
Dangerous?" In fact we have had it so
long that we have quite forgotten where
we got it, but we think we do not err in
saying that '. L. Prentls wrote it. At any
rate ft has some of his earmarks. So much
is being said by a certain class of men and
papers of the supposed dangers referred to
that we consider it timely and calculated
to do good. The demagogues who show
their heads just previous to an election in
Kansas are far more dangerous than tbe
Goulds and Vanderbllts, as bad as they are.
There is a tendency among the young
gentlemen who deliver college orations this
year, to go on at a lively rato about the
dauger to the liberties or this country in
the great accumulation or wealth in a few
We are inclined to think that this danger
Is somewhat magnified, and wo do not see
that any good is to be sttaioed'by indulg
ing in exaggeration in this regard.
In forming our system ot government,
the great danger or wealth vv as obviated by
rutting off the system of entail and primo
geniture, and by tbo provisions generally
of the laws of inheritance, which aro sub
stantially the same iu all tbe States. Tbe
existence of families with Immense estates,
descending from generation to generation
together, might be dangerous in a country
like ours, not because it keeps a few fami
lies rich, but because It fosters generations
ot Idlers and spendthrifts, absentees, prof
ligates, and sometimes Idiots.
We do not need any lord and lady of tho
manor, here, either of the good pattern,
with a tenantry to lovo or fear them, and
by our system wc never can or will have
Outside orthis danger, which, as wc have
said, is provided against, is there any real
suffering imposed upon the people by the
accumulation of wealth in the hands of any
one man, or of any number of men ? Docs
it make any real difference to us out here
in Kansas wether Mr. Gould is worth thir
ty million dollars or thirty million cents,
or thirty cents or nothing at all? Do the
possessions of Mr. Vandcrbllt Injure any
mau iu Kansas ? Would any of us be hap
pier ir any or the Vanderbllts were poorer?
There aro only two ways in which a rich
man in this country can be a pupllc danger,
or, rather, nuisance. One Is being a miser
and biding his money in cracks in the wall
and old stockings ; and tbe other is by be
ing a rone, and using his money to debauch
himseir and those who come under his in
fluence; using his wealth as the old French
nolloit did to bring down on their beads
tbe French revolution.
As a rule, our rich men belong to neither
of these classes. They have, generally
speaking, worked up from poverty. Mr.
Gould started with a county map and a pa
tent mouse trap; Mr. Chester Chapin, who
died the other day, the richest man in Mas
sachusetts, began active life as a stage
driver. The millionaires of the west, Ta
bor, Fair and tho rest, were originally no
bodies ; In fact they are still, as far as pub
lic estimation is concerned, but they are
harmless enough. They grind nobody to
the earth, and they spend their money Tree-
The luxury and so-cal'ed extravagance of
tbe rich is their own affair. No districts
are desolated to furnish Mr. Vanderbllt's
house ; no forced levy of laborers Is made
to build Mr. Gould's yacht. These men
pay for what they get. and that much money
is kept in circulation. While rich men are
building houses, yachts and railroads they
arc doing good and not barm.
Some fine-haired people are distressed
over the manners oi our ricu ; uui wuai

In our opinion, a rich man is much less
dangerous in a community than a loafer.
A politician ol the baser sort Is a greater

IS WOMAN A LIVING DECEPTION ?
Every inexperienced woman who takes
getting married in the natural way, marries
a being created by ber own fancy from all
sorts of kaleidoscopic materials from tbe
romances she has read, and the idealiza
tions ol ber own. rapturous conceptions.
In day time she finds him a coniiuonpWce
being, made up chiefly of petty animal
wants ; a person ot a small stock ol ideas,
and or no ambition to enlarge it; narrow-
minded, occupied in small pursuits, much
given to little things ol his own comfort,
and easily losing his temper at any priva
tion of them, and altogether a common
clod compared to the spiritual being which
her enchanted fancy created. What does a
good woman do? She accepts the situation,
makes a duty of that which she expected
to be a delight, and keeps up the same man
ner of love and worship, as ir he were still
the sovereign or her bosom and all ber
fancy had painted him.
Tbls, lustead of living a lie. Is the devo
tion or ber lifo to tbe 'faithful pertormancc
ol that which she has undertaken, and to
keeping the truth of her professions. It is
tbe keeping of ber contract sacred to the
utmost or her ability. Thus, when we
come' to start our logic from the correct
premises, we perceive that this Is a wife's
sacrifice to truth, and not the living a lie,
and that this chastened lire this constant
bearing of the cross logically brings to
women a finer tenderness and truthfulness.
It makes them more considerate and sub
missive wives, having always toward the
husband some feeling of remorse for hav
ing deceived blm. It makes them more de
voted to their children, lavishing upon
them the well-spring ol love which bad
ceased to gush to the man. It makes them
more spiritual minded, more given to seek
the consolation of religion, more charita
ble toward their neighbors, more unselfish
in ail things. Indeed, so paramount and
all-pervading Is tbe influence of this delu
sion or lovo and disillusion or marriage
on the character or women, that we are
not capable of judging what she would be
without the experience of this paradise,
and or this rail, which comes to every wo
man who marries in the natural way.

A PLEASANT EXPERIMENT WITH SALT.
Do you want to grow salt, and at the
same time have an interesting, handsome
ornament? The proceeding is a novel
chemical experiment that may be tried by
any one, says the Troy Timit. Put In a
goblet one tablcspoonful of salt and one
spoonful of bluing ; fill the goblet two-thirds
full of water, and set It in position where
it will have plenty or warmth and sunlight.
In a little while sparkling crystals will com
mence forming on tho outside of the glass,
and it Is a most novel and Interesting sight
to watch it gradually growing day by day
until the outside of the goblet will be en
tirely covered over with beautiful while
crystals. Auother variation ol this beau
tiful experiment would be to take a goblet
with the base broken off, and fasten it in
the centre ol a thlu piece of board, which
may be round square or oblong. Alter the
crystals have formed on the glass, set It on
a tiny wall bracket and place a bright holi
day or birthday card before it ; this will
bide the base, on which no crystals will
form. After this is done till the goblet
with flowers or dried grasses, and jou will
have a vase that will cost comparatively
little, and In reality adds to the bric-a-brac
of a room. Wc wonder how many of the
young readers of the Timet can tell us how
it is that the crystals of salt form on the
outside or the goblet?

The news from Paris Indicates that tbe
Comte de Chambord cannot long liv c. With
his death the breach between the houses of
Bourbon and Orleans, which opened 100
years ago about a diamond necklace trial,
will be closed. It began vvilh the fifth Due
d'Orlcans, who married the granddaughter
of Louis XIV. As the duke became rich be
became vindlctivo and soon was bead over
ears lu quarrels with the court. Most of all
he hated the queen, Marie Antoinette, and
was one or the first, as the leader or a court
party against her, to denounce her, when
she was accused or being a party to the
mysterious robbery or a necklace. Ilia ha
tred or her carried blm into the greatest
opposition to tbe court, and be sympathized
with the mob in its assault upon tbe Bastlle
and finally votedforthe death of Louis XIV,
who was bis cousin. This vote, however,
paved the way for the ascent to the throne
In 1830 ol Louis Philllppe, h'.s own sou, af
ter Charles X, who was the grandfather ol
the Comte de Chambord, had abdicated. It
was, however, tbe Due d'Orleans' vote
against his cousin that estranged bis son
from his Bourbon cousins alter the restora
tion of the houc of Orleans to the throne
ol France In 1830. The death of the Comte
de Chambord (childless) leaves tbe Comte
de Paris at the head or tbe Orleans house,
and tho representative or the principle or
the hereditary monarchy by divine right,as
well as that or a ronstiutlonal monarchy

At Modena among the archives of the
noble house of Este, a very curious and
important planisphere, dating from the
year 1502, has just been discovered. It
was, as appears Irom a manuscript accom
panying it, given to Ilcrculeo d'Etc by
Cantlno, bis political agent at Lisbon, and
on Hare traced the outlines of all the New
World countries which were discovered by
Gaspard Cortercal toward the close of the
fifteenth century. Geographers will rec
ognize in this part of tbe planisphere the
prototype of that map of the New World
which until the middle of the sixteenth
century was usually bound up with Ptolo-
my's works; but the valuable relic is
mainly remarkable because It apparently
proves that the coast or the peninsula or
Florida, as well as the eastern portion of
wbst is now the United States, must have
been visited by voyagers whose names and
nationalities we know nothing of, some
time before the discovery of Central Amer
ica. It in lact re-opens a question which
has never been satisfactorily settled, and
affords a powerlul argument In favor of
those writers who maintain, In face or the
claims or Vespucci, Colon, and the adven
turers of the age or Elizabeth and James
I., that tbe Old World shook hands with
the New long ere any or those celebrated
navigators were born or thought of.

THE BARBER ON VARIOUS MATTERS.
The Journal of Scitnce reports of tho ex
periments of 31 Pasteur, the French Inves
tigator, concerning the patentability ol
hydrophobia, and shows that, while we are
yet far from discovering a specific for this
dread disease, wc are at least acquiring the
ability or limiting his spread. The imme
diate object ofM. Pasteur was that or as
certaining whether dogs could be inoculat
ed with ajuild form of the disease so as to
effectually guard against their taking It In
a malignant form. He appears to bate suc
ceeded in protecting four dogs, at least to
such an extent that they have resisted the
poison in repratc-d cases vvhero all other
dogs died. It look., therefore, as II a way
of protecting dogs against the inoculation
of rabies was iu a way of being discovered.
It Is alo encouraging to observe that the
saliva of a mad dog docs not Invariably

there is, therefore, hope of immunity iu

THE PROPER POSITION FOR SLEEPING.
A German, Baron Ilelchenbacb, has oc
cupied many years In studying the art of
bed-making, or rather bed plaelog, and
maintains that improperly placed beds will
shorten a man's life.
II a mere magnet exercises an Influence
on sensitive persons, tbe earth's magnetism
must certainly make Itself felt on the ner
vous life of man; In whatever hemisphere,
you may always sleep with your feet to tbe
equator, and let your body lie "true as a
needle to tbo pole."
Tbe proper direction of the body Is or
the utmost importance for tbe proper cir
culation of the blood .and many disturbances
in the organisms have been cured simply
by placing tbe bolster in a different point
of tbe compass from that it bad occupied.
Let such as have hitherto been in the habit
of sleeping with their heads where their
feet ought to be, take to heart tbe example
of the late Dr. Hehweiter, of Madgeburg,
who died recently at tbe age or 109 years.
Tbe most unhealthy position, we are
told, is when the body lies due east and
west. Some observers assure ut that to
sleep in such a posture is tantamount to
committing suicide, and that diseases are
often aggravated by deviating Irom the
