HOW HE CONQUERED.
Paul Weimcr waa in love. 1W Taul,
the object of liis affection did not know
Iier own mind, and her parent dctjpUcd
him. Ilia beloved wiw the toll-ket-per's
daughter, and lived on the bridge which
spanned the broad river below hia moun
tain home. Aida was naturally a co-
riuette and her father s portion ojioned a
way for the indulgence of thid disposi
tion to an unlimited extent, so that her
lovers were numbered by the dozen, and
even Count Hudolph hiuuelf failed not
to cast an admiring glance upon the fair
girl in his frcqucut journeys across the
bridge. Still she was by no means in
different to the manly charms of Paul
Weiruer, and she declared to her mother
that there was not, in all the province,
as bright a pair of eyes aa Paul's black
orbs. Aa it was impossible to deny this,
the mother merely said it was a pity be

out the insects that destroyed the vines
than in sighting the chamois upon the
heights. "And his figure, too," per
sisted the girl, who desired to uphold
Paul, now that another spoke against
Did you ever see a more magnificently
formed man, mother ?"
" Oh, that is well enough, child, but
his form was developed by climbing aver
crags and precipices in search of the
wild cat, when ho should have been
digging in his vineyard."
Aida knew this was true enough, so
she made no reply, vrt, among all her
suitor, none occupiet. so many oi net
secret thought as dark-eyed Pan!, and
the day on which her father turned him
from their door and commanded him
never to enter it again, was a sad one for
her, although she would not acknowledge
that she loved him.
Young Weiiner was rendered desper
ate by the proceeding, and became wilder
in consequence. Ihe poor chamois had
reason to curse the toll-keeper's cruelty,
tor Paul now hunted them with rclont
zeal, and more than ever neglected

The winter was passing, and tho toll-
keeper had begun rejoicing at the pros
pect of the return of spring. The river
was still trozen, but the south wind blew
warm and balmy, and there had been
warm rains upon the mountains, so that
the ice was soon expected to disappear.
The family retired to rest as usual, and
were enjoying the peaceful sleep that fol
lows a day of labor, whon a. sudden and
lernblo awakening came upon them.
The elements were raging, their house
shaking to its foundations, aud the crash
of falling arches greeted their ears. The
trembling man sought the root ot his
house and discovered that the bridge at
either end had been swopt away, and he
and his family were prisoners in the midst
of a whirlpool that every instant threat
ened destruction. He cried aloud for
help, and his voice was heard above the
roar of the element by a crowd of horri
fied gazers on the river's bank, but no
one dared to face destruction in going to
his aid. Count Kudolph roue up in haste,
and in his hand ho held a purse.
"h ivo hundred crowns to any one who
attempts their rescue," bhouted he, but
no one moved, and destruction jeemed

paid no attention whatever, but at onoo

boat lay upon tho bank, Without a
word he launched into the boiling current,
and was soon fighting his way toward the
central pier, upon which tho toll-keeper's
house stood. After a desperate effort and
many narrow escapes, ho reached tho
place, and tho frightened keener attemp
ted at once to step in, unmindful of tho
fato of his wifo and child.
''Keep back !" shouted tho man in the
boat, and giving it a turn, nearly precipi
tated the toll-keeper into the boiling flood.
"I can take but one at a time, and Aida
must como first. . , .,
They then knew that their brave res
cuer was Paul Wcltner. - Knowing that
remonstranco was useless, the father helped
his daughter into tho boat. As it was
shoved from tho pier, tho girl exclauuod,

Providence nee more crowned his
efforts, and he reached the pier in safety,

seemed dead, tried at once to enter into
tho boat. , 1 ' . ') ;

an oar, and half tempted to strike the
cowardly wretch, who stcnDcd back in
As the boat departed, the toll-keeper
icarca tnat mo joung nun would leave
him to his fate, and he knew ho deserved
nothing better at his hands, so he cried
out in anguish : ' -
" If you return fid- run' lJnl A uia. khall

No answer was heard in return, and
the poor wretch feared his last chance
Once more the little , ark, with its
precious human freight, approached the
shore, and Aida olaspcd her mother in

stood a moment to breathe,' before again
breasting the torrent. Ono luss on her
fair cheek sealed the contract, and lie was

The poor keeper on tho pier could
hardly believe his senses, as he saw Paul
return, and completely humbled, he silently
took his seat in the little boat. They
had not vet reached the shore when the
pier on which the house had stood, tottered
and fell into the boiling whirl-pool ; but
the frail boat providentially reached land
in safety, and the lather was restored to
his wife and daughter. "

Humbert Renier Charles Emanuel
Jean Marie Ferdinand Eugene, King
Victor's oldest sun and successor, was
born March 14, 1844, and initiated into
public affairs, civil and military, at a
very early age. At fifteen he accompa
nied his father to tho war against Aus
tria, aud in 18G2 took an intimate part
in the reorganization of the old kingdom
of the Two Sicilies, visiting Naples and
Palermo with Garibaldi, to receive an
enthusiastic reception. On the eve of
the second war with Austria the Crown j
Prince was sent to Paris to sound the
Emperor on the important subject of the
preliminary treaty that Italy had con
cluded with Prussia. He returned from
this important mission to take part with
his brother Amudcus (afterwards King
of Spain) . in tho battle of Custosza,
where the two princes commanded a di
vision of Cialdini's army. Forniinghis
regiments into squares, in one of which
he took his stand, Prince Humbert was
ablo to resist tho Austrians till Bixio
came to his aid and helped him to cover
Durando's retreat, which otherwise would
have been converted into a rout. Though
a Lieutenant-Gencral in the army, the
Prince had a few months before the
breaking out of tho war, declined the
pay and allowances to which he was en
titled, to ease the burden on tho national
treasury. At the Paris Exposition of
18G7, he acted as President of the Ital
ian Commission. On tho 22nd of April
of the following year (18G8) Prince
Humbert married his cousin, the Princess
Mariruorita Mario Thercse Jeanne of
Savoy, daughter of his dead father's
dead brother, Ferdinand, Duke of Genoa,
and of the Princess Elisabeth, daughter
of King John of Saxony. Tho Duke of
Genoa died in 1855, and his widow next
year contracted a morganatio nuuriage
with tho Marquis of llapallo. The
weddincwas celebrated amid universal
5ublio rejoicings, and when, November
1,18(59, just ss Victor Emanuol .was
rocovcr'mgfrom his dangerous illness, tho
vounir Crown' Priuoess she; was then
eighteen years and a day old gave birth
at Naples, to an heir, Victor Emanuel
Ferdinand. Prince of Naples, the popular
rejoicings wore redoubled, and the procla
mation ot a general amnesty iuu i turner
incrcasod the gladness, ioon MtJrguerita
has always been the idol of th Italian
people, and has made her emblem-flower,
the daisy, popular beyond measure at all
fates snd nublio demonstration. Amert
can readers will remember the conorous
Dart she nlaved at the time of the re
cent inundations of the Tiber and how
Mithnainittia was her reception every
where by the sufferers. It is not too
much to say that, weak-minded woman
as she Is, she Is to-day the main pillar of
tho dynasty, .

Somo medical students in one of tho
colleges of Cincinnati, dissecting a female
subject a few days ago, found what was
called in doctors parlance a " corset liver.
Vthen tight-lacing has been practiced
through several vears. a nrrmanent dent
or hollow is produced in tho liver, which
may be seen very plainly after tho woman
is dead, and her liver dissected out. This
kind of liver occurs so freriuently in
women that physicians have given it the
name of "corset liver." In the subject
mentioned the hollow in the liver was
urge enough for the wrist of a grown
niaa to be laid in it.
Speaking of Peruvian railroads a cor
respondent says-: ' Some idea of tho
crookedness of the road from Lima to
the summit of the Andes may be ob
tained when ono sees five trains in mo
tion on the same track and no two going
tng in tho same direction. Of tunnels
and curves there is no end. Peru seems
to have wasted her capital in building a
half-dozen roads running from tho coast
into tho mountains instead of concentra
ting hir strength into building one- road
to v'ue Amazon. Tho Meiggs contracts
were larger than tho Government could
itaml, and it may bo many years before
any practical good will come out of the
Peruvian railway system.

Fred Douglass says : " The vurj best
thing the white people can do for us is to
stop doing for its, aud leave us to do for
ourselves. I hayo told the politicians so
everywhere., They havo done so much
for us that they have nearly undpne us.
If we can't iivo honestly by mtr own la
bor then we ought to die. The question
with us u will wo work as hard for our
selves as we once did for our masters?
If wo don't wo shall go to tho wall,
for liberty is as essentially a state of
hard work as slavery Is of disgraceful
sloth. It is only by hard labor that we
can ever catch up with the whito race,
and by imitating their virtues instead of
their vices. Emigration is a delusion and
a shame. The white raco is everwhero
on the laee of the globe, and we could
sot fot away from them if we would,"

Carefully prepared statistics show that

seventy thousand die annually who go

O.ve Way to Get Rica. Nothing is
more easy than to grow rich. It is only
to trust nobody to befriend none to
get all you can, and save all you get to
stint yourself and every body belonging
to you to be the friend of no man, and
have no man for your friend to heap in
terest upon interest, cent upon cent to
be mean, miserable and despised for some
twenty or thirty years and riches will
come as sure as disease and disappoint
ment. And whon pretty nearly enough
wealth is collected, by a disregard of all
the charities of tho human heart, and at
the expense of every enjoyment, death
comes to finish the work tho body is
buried in a hole, the heirs dance over it,
and the spirit goes where ?
A DiacorBAGED Mother. Many a
discouraged mother folds her tired hands
at night, and feels as if she had, after
all, done nothing, although she has not
spent an idle moment since sho rose. Is
it nothing that your helpless littlo chil
dren have had some ono to come to with
all their childish joj-a and griefs? Is it
nothing that your husband feels safe
when he is away at his business, because
your graceful hand directs everything at
home? Is it nothing when his business
is over that he has the blessed rcfugo of
home, which you havo done your best
to brighten and refine? Oh, weary and
faithful mother you littlo know your
power when you say, " I have" done
nothing. " There is a book in which

- If manure is spread on meadows in the
Fall, the freezing and thawing during the
Winter will tend to fertilize it, and the
Spring rains will wash tho fertilizing
material into the soil. It will also be
ready as soon the plants need tho manure.
XiM it tne spreading is aeiaycu until
Spring this end may not bo secured. If
the manure remains in small heaps it
may bt quite late in Spring before tho
frost gets out, and, consequently, it will
not be in condition to use, either at the
best time or to the best advantage. Be

the heaps after they have lain during the
Winter than it is to do it as soou t hey aro
