A GREAT KING'S PERIL,

Germany. The fairest provinci'J of the

despair reigned throughout the land
until at length the great and good Gua
ta.vus Adolphus, who excelled, equally
as a captain an I a statesman, was in
duced, principally by the advice of his
astute chancelor, the celebrated Uxen

was an instantaneous and truly mar
velous revulsion of feeling among the
ooonle. Desnair gave way to the most
Jervid hopefulness. The belief that the
accession of the .Swedish king of the re
formed rause was equivalent to the
utter and final discomfiture of the im
perialists was widely prevalent even in
the ranks of the latter. And yet, but
for a very singular concatenation of
romantic circumstances, the brilliant
career of the Swedish king, who fell
afterward so gloriously on the bloody
field of Lutzen, came near being ended
at the above mentioned 1 omeranian
fortress of Stralsund.
The life of Gustavus Adolphus
abounded in romantic incidents, but the
strangest of these episodes was, perhaps,
the oue which we are now going to re
late to our readers.
We should promise, however, tha
Gustavus Adolphus, a he appears in
history, is not the man he was in private
life. Especially in his earlier years, he
subjected himself frequently to the re
proach that he was too fond of the fair
sex. lie was ever, and there is reason
to believe, not unjustly charged with
having overcome, in moments ot irresis
tible passion, the scruples of women, of
whom he was enamored, by promises of
marriage, which he afterwards broke as
easily as he had rashly made them
These blots in his earlier year, however,
were olmterWed by his later career,
which stands unrivald in the annals ot
the royalty of the seventeenth century,
and which excited the admiration of his
It was late in the evening of the day
on which Gustavus Adolphus had landed
with his army at Stralsund that he and
his chancelor. Uxenstiern, were convers
ing in one ot the small rooms at the
house of Dr. Urauin, the burgomaster
ot the city, where the king had estab
lished his headquarters.
" My good Oxenstiern." said the king
to liis chancelor, "this has leeii a great

Your majesty, the extraordinary re
ception with which vou have met here
seems to me an auspicious augury of the
success of the momentous mission that
has brought you and your soldiers to
these shores. Such a scene as that

that awaited you on the shore greeted

flower ot the country, back to Swe

with that confident superiority which
made him one of the most convincing
and irresistible orators of his time,
"need not give way to doubts. For the
time being, there is absolutely nothing
to give us the slightest uneasiness. ihe
support which Cardinal Richelieu gives

" Richelieu 1" exclaimed the king.
" But is he really and sincerely with
" He is. sire "
" At times it seemed passing strange
to me," interrupted Gustavus Adol
phus, "that he, a prelate ot the ortho
dox church, should lend such active aid
to the dissenters in their life-and-death
struggle with the imperialists."
" Ywtir majesty," interrupted the
chancelor, ' I know Richelieu, lie is a
man of iron, lie knows that the tri
umph of the court of Hap-burg would
lie d:mgerous in the extreme for r ranee,
and that outweighs with him all other
considerations, for the rest the Mar

of tke king of France. He will be pres
ent at the banquet of the burgomaster
and municipality to-morrow, and on
that occasion transmit to your majesty
two letters one from King Ixmis the
Thirteenth, and, what is more impor
tant, another from Cardinal Richelieu."
The conversation was here broken off",
and the chancelor retired. The king
opened his testament in order to read",
as was his habit, a chapter in it before
going to bed, when there was a so(t rap
at the door, and Dr. lirauns, the burgo
master of Stralsund, and host of the
king, entered the room, bowing deeply.
" Your majesty," he said, "forgive
this intrusion. All evening there has
liceii down stairs a vailed lady, who re
fuses to give her name, but who seems
t le of liigh descent. She is extremely
anxious to see your majesty for a tew
minutes, as she alleges, on business of
the highest importance. I have vainly
tried to get rid of her. She asked me to
hand your majesty this locket."
The king took the locket and opened
An exclamation of surprise escaped
" Send her np," he then said, ab
ruptly, to the burgomaster.
The king seemed to have suddenly
become greatlv agitated.
When the Joor opened, a few minutes
later, and a slen-'er, gracefully built
lady entered, he advanced a few steps
toward her. She raised the thick vail
that covered her face and displayed a
countenance very pale and somewhat
fa led, but still retaining traces of great

" For years, it may be, my career will

" You mean my son ? Thank God,

" 1 have com? to save your life, King

" My life ! " echoed the kin.. " Is it

" It is in imminent peril."
" From what quarter ?"
" Listen to me, king," she replied, in
a still lower tone.
He motioned her to a seat. For a
moment she seemed to struggle with
her emotions. Then she hurst into
tears, and, averting her face, said, hur
riedly: "Gustavus Adolphus. in spite of all

IS'ext day there was an air of festivity
about the city of Stralsund. Two whole
oxen where roasted on the market-place
for the poor people, and the troops were
treated to extra luxuries on account of
the king's arrival, At ten o'clock the
king held a gala reception at the city
hall, where the royal banquet was to

Gustavus Adolphus received him in
the most graciouiji manner, indeed with
such extraordinary cordiality that the
Spaniard was perfectly delighted. The
king seemed deeply interested in what
Don Estebau had to tell him, and when
the time for the begiiininb of the ban

In answer to some inquiry as to raising
wheat on old lands, my experience is in
favor of old land. I think all patent
measures are useless until our barnyards
are first cleaned of all the litter from
cattle and hog-pens. If this be done
fir.rt, and applied to the soil, old land or
new, at the rate of twenty or twenty-five
loads per acre, it will certainly pay, and
pay largely, but most people aim to
make a load of manure go too far.
Some men go over an acre of land
with three or four loads; otheis spend
all their lives talking about some great
fertilizer or patent manure, when nine
times out of ten you will see the horse
wading in manure, in front of the stable,
from one to three feet deep. I often do
things myself in a hurry, and things
done in a hurry are only half done. But
one thing I don't do ; I have never
thrown but two loads of litter from my
stable-door on the ground iu fifteen
years, the ground then being too wet to
get out with the team. My rule is lo
haul it out and put it on the land.
Some say it is better to let it lay and
decompose. So it is, but most men are
carelest, and let it all run away and
waste, and then the soil is robbed, and
our crops are poor. Rutting manure on
land green is be tter than not putting it
on at all. I have a piece of wheat on
old land this year, manured at the rate
of twenty loads per acre, which will
make twenty bushels per acre. I have
some on almost new land that won't
make more than three bushels per acre.
Will it pay to buy fertilizers for wheat ?
No. Better make it on the farm. Many
of the fertilizers are worthless, and cost
too much money, which had better be
spent at home hauling manure. Gather
ail you can and buy or beg of vour
neighbors. Many are glad to give it
away to get it away from their stable
doors. Some few haul it out; ethers
prefer to move the Btable. Brother
farmers this won't do. Makeup. It is
poor logic to talk about your farms get
ling poor. You can keep them up.
Better commence now, and if you and I

Let the meat cool thoroughly ; cut in
to pieces four to six inches wide; weigh
them and pack them as t:'ght as possible
in a barrel; salting very lightly. Cover
the meat with brine made as strong as
possible, l'ouroff a gallon of brine, and
mix with it one teaspoonful of saltpeter
for every hundred pounds of . meat, and
return it to the barrel. Let it stand one
month; then take out the meat; let it
drain twelve hours. Put the brine in
an iron kettle, and one quart of treacle
or two pounds ot sugar, and boil until
perfectly clear. When it is cold return
the meat to the barrel and pour on the
brine. H eight it down and keep it cov
ered close, and you will have the sweetest
meat you ever tasted.

How to ..elect Meats.
An English journal gives the follow
ing hints on this subject: uood and
wholesome meat should neither be of a
pale rosy or pink color, nor of a deep
purple. The first denotes the diseased
condition, the last proves the animal has
died a natural death, uood meat has
more of a marble look in consequence of
the. branching of the veins, which sur
round the adipose cells. The fat, especi
ally of the inner organs, is always firm
and suetv and never moist, while in
general the fat from diseased cattle is
flabby and watery, and more olten re
sembles jelly or boiled parchment
Wholesome meat will always show itself
firm and elastic te.the touch and exhibit
no dampness, while bad meat will ap
pear soft and moist in fact, often more
wet, so that the liquid substance runs
out of the blood when pressed hard.
Good meat has verv little smell, and
diffuses a certain medicir.al odor. This
can be di'tinctlv proved by cutting the
meat through with a knife and smelling
the blade, or pouring water over it.
Lastly, bad meat has the peculiarity
that it shrinks considerably in the boil
ing ; wholesome meat rather swelis, and
does not lose an ounce in weight.

The Mohawk Disaster.
New York Herald.
Colonel Crosby, whom the Herald re
porter met at the Garner mansion, gave
the following thrilling description of the
death-struggle on the ill-lated yacht:
"The party who went out on the yacht
on Thursday consisted of commodore
and Mrs. Garner, Miss Adele Hunter,
Miss Edith May, Mr. Gardner Howland,
Mr. Louis Montant, Mr. Frost Thorn,
brother of Mrs. Garner, and myself.
We took the Mohawk's steam launch
from the yacht club house and went on
board the Mohawk about half-past three
o'clock. As soon as we got on board the
commodore gave the captain directions
to get under way. At this time the
Moh awk was lying at anchor, with her
fore and raaintopsail, staysail and jib
set. Therewas every appearance of a
squall coming up from the westward.
Just as we broke the anchor, and as the
vessel was playing off, but before we got
under any headway, the rain Itegan to
fall very heavily, which drove the whole
party of ladies and gentlemen who were
on the deck into the cabin. In about
three or four minutes we felt that the
squall had struck us, and very heavily,
too ; foi the furniture in the cabin began
to move down to leeward. When com
modore Garner, Mr. Thorn, Mr. How
land and myself ran up the gangway to
the deck to see what was the matter we
found the boat making no headway, and
with the water running over her lee-rail,
and running down both into the cockpit
and through the Ice skylights into the
cabin. Commodore Garner and I im
mediatly jumped into the cab'n. where
we heard the ladies calling for help.
Everything was in the wildest state ot
confusion. All the sofas, settees, chairs
and tables had been thrown over to the
leeside, and overturned, and water was
pouring in through the forward hatch
way, and from the side lights on the port
side and from the cockpit. The first
person I saw was Miss May, who was
still in an upright position, clinging on
to the fireplace. I crept along to where
she was, and caught hold of her, and we
made our way over the general wreck of
cabin furniture until we got to the alter
hatchway ; but the vessel being on her
beam ends Miss May was unable to get
up the steps. I pushed her up through
the opening, where Mr. Howland gal
lantly lescued her, he being at the time
at the entrance of the cabin opening. I
immediately turned round and made my
way through the water, which was then
nearly waist deep, to the side of Mr.
Montant, who was struggling to remove
the sofa that had been thrown over on
the leeside, covering both Mrs. Garner
and Miss Hunter, who were loudly call
ing for help When I reached them
Mr. Garner had hold of Mrs. Garn r by
the right arm, and both she and Miss
Hunter were begging that they might
be relieved from the weight that was
holding them down. Mr. Montant and
I succeeded in getting the lounge to the
after hatchway, where we pushed it up
to some one on deck. I then lost sight
of Mr. Montant. Returning to where
Mrs. Garner and Miss Hunter were, I
still found Mr. Garner holding on to
Mrs. Garner's arm and both she and
Miss Hunter still begging to be released
from this weight that was holding them
down. I caught hold of Miss Hunter's
hand in the meantime the water was
rushing in from all sides and tried to
pull her out, the water being' nearly up
to her neck, she being wedged in only a
few feet from where Mr. Garner was in
the same position. In trying to pull
her out my hand slipped, and I fell over
backward in the water. When I re
covered myself the water had completely
covered her. 1 then went to JHrs. uar
ner's assistance, when Mr. Garner ex
claimed, "Schuyler, for God's sake try
and help me pull her out." I caught
hold of her left hand and arm, Mr. Gar
ner still having hold of her right. In
themeantim3a sailor, who with Mr.
Garner and myself were the only men
left in the cabin, tried to remove some
of the lurniture that was evidently hold
ing her down, while Mr. Garner and
myself pulled as hard as we could to
extricate her. but to no purpose. Just
then the vessel seemed to give an extra
lundi, and the water washed all over us.
This was the lat that I saw of Mr. and
Mrs. Garner alive. I half pushed, half
swam to a light spot, which proved to
be an opening cut by the boatswain
through one ot the side r.ghts, and crawl
ing through the hole I found the sailor
who had been in the cabin with me just
before me. We both swam to a small
boat that had three men in it, but in
trying to get in this boat she was
swamped, and as she came bottom up I
clung to the keel, together with tho
other man, until I saw a boat from the

such dear friends, to feel that I can
dispassionately give an opinion as to any

The insane rage of the republican sen

to the fact that the money appropriated
is not sufficient to support all the ninety-

call these very proper reductions " crip

The call of Messrs. John A. Dix, James

utterly the radicals depend upon the

As they have nothing else to offer the
people they are trvinz to do the best
they can with the threadbare argument in
effect that the democratic party, if suc-

somewhat remarkable tbat the republi

at any unanimous decision upon this

-Hayes. The party organs which are
inflaming their turbid columns with
unread battle pieces detailing the South
Carolina enormities, have been neither
hot nor indignant that the lack of ample
resources at the frontier brought about
the slaughter of Custer and his three
hundred. Are we to understand that
the lives of a dozen or a million thieving
negroes, trained by Moses and Whipper
in robbery, pillage, and rapine, are more
precious to the nation than those of Cus
ter and his slaughtered companions?
Plainly this is the obvious inference,
since the men in congress who speak for
the party declare, and the organs who
reflect the party sentiments so re-echo.
The negro has rights which in every
well-governed southern state the law re
spects. South Carolina, which is as con-
hrmedly a republican state as Maine, is
the only southern commonwealth under
any danger of disturbance. By natural
inference, the republican method must
be held responsible for the situation.
Of course sensible men see at nee the
motive, and divine at once the machin
ery by which these disturbances are
brought about. The carpet-bag system
is wavering to its long-merited end. To
prop it up for another season desperate
means are needed. What means more
effective than the embittering of the
negroes and the firing of the northern
heart? Hence, you may expect from
this until November vicarious sacrifice
of Senegambian martyrs, whose names
go up as an offering to propitiate the
gods of pillage and rapine.

taken it upon themselves to elect him
president. He wants to be elected, and
he is bright enough to know that an at
tempt to revive the old sectional leeling
against the south will hurt more than it
will help him. When, thereiore, he
reads in the party papers that Tilden is
"the contederate nominee lor the presi-
dency " he must curse the ill luck which
has given him the support ot such small
minds. Finding that his volunteer
friends are trying to make votes for him
by crying out that " the confederate flag
waves at many oi the la'ge towns in the

strange if he prayed to be delivered Irom

does not wish to tight the campaign on
sectional issues ; he has taken advantage
ot every apportunity since his nomina

northern editorial maniac against the
"confederates" takes from him the sym

would hear that half a hundred ot the
papers which now think they are " put

Indiana and Ohio as Debatable O round.
New York World.
As the republicans by their nomina
tion of eovernor Hayes have selected
Ohio and Indiana as the battle-field most
favorable in their own judgment to their
hopes, it is clear that, while the repub
lican victory in Ohio in October would
signify comparatively little as to the
prospects of the, presidential contest in
November, a democratic victory there in
October would mean not simply defeat
but annihilation for the republicans in
the succeeding month. It can be shown
by the election returns of the last ten
years that on a full vote Indiana really
is a democratic state, ana inai in ynio
the chance of the democracy, it united,
are at least as good as those of the repub
licans this year. Ihe lollowing laDie,
ootiied from th World almanac for 1876,
exhibits the vote of Indiana at all of the
general elections heid since the close of
the civil war:

The loss of the state to the dem crats
by a few votes iu October, 18C8, insured
the electoral vote to Gen. CJrant in the
succvedin'X month. tut the democrats
turned the scale in 1S70, and they have
kept the upperhand in every election i
since except in that lor president, in jm
vember, 1872, when, in consequence of
the righteous dissatisfaction of Indiana
democrats with the candidature of Mr.
Greeley, the election was permitted to
go by default. After an almost unex
ampled contest for governor, Hendricks
had been elected by 1,148 majority in
the previous month, but there were 25,
787 democrats who voted for Hendricks
in October, who would not vote for
Greeley in November, and this gave the
state to Grant. But the returns show
that in the last three elections for state
officers the democrats have been success
ful. The democratic majority in 1870
was 2,568; in 1872. (including the
"straipht" democratic vote), 1,337, and
in 1874, over the combined republican
and independent vote, 1;019. and over
the republican vote alone, 17,252.
Inidana, then, had been carried by
the democrats in all the recent elections
whenever the whole democratic vote had
been called out, the prospect for next
October may be summed up in a few
sentences. If parties stand as they stood
at the last election, the democrats will
have a clear majority. But it is proba
ble that the more respectable portion of
the independent vote of two years ago
will go with the democrats new. It may
not be more than ten per cent., but still
it will increase the democratic majority.
If now we consider that Indiana's favor
ite, Hendricks, is the democratic candi
date for vice-president, and that the
state has been complimented in his per
son ; that the honest and popular " Blue
Jean " Williams is the democratic candi
date for governor, while his opponent,
that unworthy German, ashamed of his
German name, Gottlieb Orth, who calls
himself Godlove, labors under serious
charges affecting his honor as a man and
public official, which charges he cannot
disprove, it must be admitted that
things in Indiana are all moving in the
direction of a demoeiatic victory.
The exciting canvass of last year in
Ohio diew out the largest vote ever
polled in the state. The democratic
vote was larger (by 40,000) than it had
ever been before. It was within the
tiifleof less than 6,000 of the republican
vote. Expressed in percentages, the
republican vote was 50.24 of the whole,
the democratic vote 49 31, and the tem
perance vote 45 a difference between the
democratic and republican vote of less
than one per cent. But the most import
ant fact to be mentioned in this con
nection is that, notwithstanding the
magnitude of the democratic vote o'
1875, it did not include the German
vote nor that of an uncertain number of
democrats who were dissatisfied with the
financial views of Gov. Allen. The Ger
mans voted with the republicans, and
the dissatisfied democrats refrained from
voting at all. If, therefore, the democ
racy of Ohio in October, 1875, when their
party was divided aud the Germans
were against them, polled within one per
cent, of the republican vote, what ought
they not be able to do this year, with a
united party and a vast majority of the
Ohio Germans enthusiastically sustain
ing them? It is obvious that only a full
democratic vote should be necessary to
secure Ohio to the democracy, eveu in
the October fight.

only mention one as remarkable, (though I
could cive you dozens). Henrv Koster, fur

try a few bottles of the Uolden Medicel Dis

him it would surely cure him. He com
menced its use some six weeks since, taking
two I ellets each niyht tor a week, then one
eah niirht, and the Discovery as directed.
The result is, today his skin is perfectly

He has taken some seven or eight bottles in
