BMn., April 9.-Emperor Frederick
passed a good night last night. He arose
early this morning and bade farewell to the
Empress previous to her departure for
Posen, with Princesses Victoria, Sophie
and Margaret, to inquire as to the condition
of the sufferers by the floods.
The Empress arrived at Posen this after
noon. She stopped at other places besides
Landuberg. where she was received by the
municipalandother officials, and was every
where greeted withenthusiasm. ThePolish
leaders have issued a manifesto asking the
inhabitants of Posen to sink their national
disputesand unite in welcoming the Em
press. In reply to the deputation which
met her at the station in Posen Empress
Victoria said that the Emperor, regretting
his inabilkty to come himself, had sent her
to examine as to the condition of affairs and
to report to him. The persons who have
been prominent in helping the sufferers by
the floods were presen to the Empress,
who thanked them for their efforts to
allevIae-the distress among the people.
The Governor of Posen met the Empress
at Kreuz. Burgomaster Mueller received
the Empress at the Posen station and pre
seated to her the leading officials of the dep
utationand the relief committee, composed
of oflicers of the Second Hussars. Arch
bishp Dinder and a number of Protestant
and Catholic clergy were also present. The
road from the station to the town was lined
with trade guilds, carrying flags and em
blems, the Landwekr associations and
schoolchbldren. TheEmpressdrove slowly
and was incessantly cheered by the people.
She first visited the asylum, a large school
house where the homeless. are temporarily
lodged, and thence went to the Governor's
house, where she took lunch. Addressing
Councilor Jacobs, the JEmpress said: "I
commission you to express to all taking a
helpful part in the present danger the
thaskofice Emperor and myself. The
calamity that has befallen you arouses our
deepest sympathy and we hope to alleviate

A BUSINESS-LIKE DOG.
ao Compels His Master, the Doctor, to
Cal Upon a Patient.
(From the Gridley, Cal., Herald.)
Dr. Harris, of this city, is the owner
>f a dog whose remarkable intelligence
is worth recording in the historical an
nals of marvels peculiar to this age.
"Don" is a thorough-bred bird-dog,
paniel and pointer combined, and al
ways at his master's heels when that gen
deman is at home. About six weeks ago
the doctor was called to Siskiyou county
md did not return until last Saturday.
"Don" was comled to stay at home,
md stuck very close to the house. When
parties would call and inquire for the
physician the dog would invariably in
errupt the conversation, and, taking
hold of the caller's coat or dress, en
ceavor to lead them to the depot, at the
ame time barking vigorously. He
would also be at the depot regularly
every morning when the train arrived
from the north, apparently looking for
bis master. The last week of the gen
tleman's absence "Don" was at the depot
apon the arrival of every train from the
north, hence when the doctor got off he
was met by a gentleman who seemed too
much astonished to speak. "How in
the world did you know that I wanted
you? Did you come purposely to see
me?" he said as he greeted the hysi
aian. "Yes," replied Harris; "but I
shouldn't have come here if the dog
hadn't almost forced me to." Harris
then asoertained that the gentleman had
been at his house the previous night and
left word for him to call as soon as he
arrived home. In as much as Dr. Har
ris had not seen any person and acted
as he only to please the dog, the logical
conclusion is that "Don" heard and un
derstood the conversation the previous
night and did that which his dog sense
dictated. That the canine has pretty
near as much sense as a great many
human beings is further evidenced by
the fact that he will, at his master s
command, traverse the town in search
little doe Harris (aged 7 years) and com
pel him to come home.
" ER DYING CHAMPIONS."
The Augusta Chronicle is impelled to re
mark thus upon the dying condition of
Roscoe Conkling and the failing strength
of James G. Blaine:
"The illness of Roscoe Conkling in New
York recalls the fact that another conspi
cuous figure in national politics is fast fail
ing, and that before the year is closed
James G. Blaine wall be no more. Latest
advices from Europe, through medical
sources, leave no doubt that the Maine
statesman is dying from diabetes. He has
lost flesh heavily of late, and looks old and
infirm. It is said that Mr. Blaine is im
pressed with the belief that he is going to
die, and his friends admit that he has failed
very rapidly this winter. In the past
twenty years no men have had greater part
in moulding public affairs. Each was
elected to Congress during the war, and
both made distinguished records in the up
per and lower houses of Congress. Conk
ling was haughty and imperious, but
learned, logical and cogent. Blaine has
been affable, popular, eloquent and meg
netic. Naturally, they have been rivals
and are now enemies, Blaine contriving
always to humiliate and nettle Conkling,
while the great New Yorker has twice
managed to block his rival's nomination to
the Presidency in his party, and, when vic
tory was almost within his grasp, threw
New York State to Cleveland by the solid
vote of Oneida.
"Both are now out of politics. Blaine
forced Conkling from the Senate, and
Conkling knifed Blaine in the last national
race. Neither will ever resume his place
in the councils of the party-where each
has fought with giant-like abilities. It
may be said of Blaine that no party ever
worshipped a man so closely or continu
ously since the days of Henry Clay. It may
be said of Conkling that no breath of dis
honesty ever attainted his name or clogged
his career. A statesman with Blaine's
temperament and Conkling's character
might revive even the drooping destinies
of the Republican party, which seems now
about to lose the abilities of both and to be
near its own hour of dissolution.
"What a leveller, what power of peace
making has impendn death! The -two
gladiators have droppe their weapons and
ceased their hostile designs. An ocean
rolls like eternity between them. One of
these, in sunny Itally, sees his life ebb
slowly out like the tide of the Vesuvian
bay; the other walks the room in his de
lirium and feels the voleano itself burning
in his brain. In alittle while both shall
sleep in the flower crypts and under the
blue vaults of old New England."

IS IT A GHOST?
The Occupants of a Bad Behaving House, for
Comfort's Sake, Leave.
The house recently occupied by P. L.
Wise is now vacant. On the night follow
ing the shock mentioned in last week's
Press and Reporter, while Mr. Baird and
his wife were at supper, a considerable
noise was heard in the direction of Mr.
Wise's house. He wanted to go and see
what was the matter, but his wife was too
much frightened to allow him to absent
himself from home.
On the Sabbath evening following, while
Mrs. P. L. Wise and Mrs. Abram Long
a neighbor who was paying a visit-were
getting supper, all at once, without warn
ing, something began popping around over
the floor. A sound such as is made by fire
crackers was heard. and a scent like burnt
powder or sulphur was noticed. At the
same time the house shook. The family
became so frightened that they all left the
house and went over to Mrs. Long's to
spend the night. Mr. Wise and his wife
returned home Monday morning, and the
occurrence of Sunday was repeated while
they were there. Mr. Wise immediately
went to work and moved out. At sun
down, we understand, is the favorate time
the house selects to commence its shaking.
This information is obtained from Messrs.
Wise, Baira and others of the immediate
neighborhood. They do not understand
why the house acts as it does. It certainly
has caused Mr. Wise a great deal of incon.
venience and trouble.-Prosperity Press
A FOOTMAN'S GOOD LUCK.
He Falls Heir to a Fortune of Thirty Thous
Sydney H. Phipps, a young Englishman
20 years of age, employed as footman by
Lawyer G. T. Bispham at 1805 De Lancey
Place, has received word that he has fallen
heir to a fortune of $30,000. He received
a letter last Saturday from his mother, who
lives in Liverpool, England, notifying him
of the death of his grandfather, M. A.
Chriaman, a money broker at Cheltingham,
who had made him joint heir with her.
Young Phipps has been in this country
since May, 1885, and has been employed
by Dr. Stewart, of Broad street, and others,
and latterly with Lawyer Bispham. When
he received the letter Saturday he was a
very much surprised young man, and could
hardly believe his eyes as be read the let
ter over and over again.
Phipps is the son of Alexander Phipps,
one of the best known local Liverpool mu
sicians and a professor of music in the Uni
versity of Liverpool. The family is an
eminently respectable one, of what is known
in England as the middle class. Young
Sydney came to this country in 1885 on a
visit with his mother and some friends.
Shortly after their arrival in this country
Mrs. Phipps received word that her father
was dying and she at once returned to
England. Sydney, however, decided to
stay here and see what the country was
like, as his father had an idea of setting
him up in business here if he liked the
country. His father's idea was for him to
become a farmer, but Sydney had an alto
gether different notion for his own welfare
and went to Chicago. He stayed there a
few weeks, but the lake city did not suit
him and he came to Philadelphia, where
he secured employment as attendant in the
home of Dr. Stewart, of Broad street, and
later with Lawyer Bispham.
Phipps's intention is to go to England
when he receives word that it is necessary
for him to appear at the Cheltingham Court
of Chancery, but he says he. has made up
his mind not to stay there, but as soon as
he sets the money to return to this country,
which he likes.-Philadelphia Times, 9th.

A Youthful Murderer.
Laney Walker has just been lodged in
the Union jail for the murder of Sibby
Ashe. Laney is a negro boy only 9 years
of age. Sibby Ashe was a negro girl 12
years of age. The diffiulty in which
Sibby met her death occurred in Gowdeys
vile Township. A negro woman was
washing clothes down at a spring when a
dispute arose between the two children,
and as the arguments of each had reached
that stage when the debaters had exhausted
their reason, they appealed to brute
strength and a struggle ensued. The girl
apparently got enough and fled to the
woods. The boy pursued, and, overtaking
her, plunged his knife into her side. From
the effects of the wound she soon after
wards died. The boy's age may save his
neck. It is reported that he killed another
child last year.

may destroy what has hitherto been consid
ered a legitimate business. The decision
was upon the validity of the Pennsylvania
statute making it unlawful for any person
to manufacture or sell any imitation of
butter or cheese. The court held that the
act was valid; that the Legislature has an
undoubted right to suppress the sale of
manufacture of any article it may regard
as prejudicial to the health of the public.
Judge Harlan, who read the decision of
the court, held that it was not necessary t<
inquire whether the act was wise or other
wise. That is a matter for the people wh<
elect legislatures to determine. Whatever
may be thought of the wisdom or propriet3
of the legislation in dispute, there can be
no question about the right of the Stat<
Legislature to enact it and the decision o:
the court is in line with many others up
holding the power of the State to regulate
its own affairs.-Philadelphia Times, 10th

A Fatal Accident.
A fatal accident occurred near Smith's
Mills, about thirty-five miles from George
town, a few days ago, by which a colored
man named Ben Davis lost his life. It
seems that Davis, accompanied by two
young white men named Perry, went into
the woods in pursuit of turkeys early in
the morning, and that one of the Perrys
imitated the yelping of a turkey so closely
that Ben mistook him for the genuine bird
and undertook to creep up on him. Perry
mistook the negro for a turkey and fired
away at him and killed him. Davis is said
to have been a very deserving man. He
leaves a large family.
Deadly Work of Lightning.
Mr. J. F. Ingram, who lives in the Pri

killed and the buggy to which the mule
was attached was shattered to pieces by the

THE LILi OF THE NILE.
You know that great white lily
That stately cup of creamy snow
That rears an alabaster lamp.
With broad green blades below?
Madge has, within her chamber,
This scion of Nilotian race
To typify the purity
That reigns about the place.
One day a bud, fresh opened,
Shone out a flower, full bloom and fair,
And Madge-it was a way of hers
Bent down and kissed it there.
Her ripe, re:l lips touched softly
Upon the cup of creamy snow
Oh: would that I a lily were
That Madge might kiss me so'
A Bit of Porcelain.
It is while examining a collection 01
Japanese, Chinese and Corean porcelain,
pottery and faience that one realizes the
fact that no hard work illuminated by
taste or genius perishes from the world.
The original designers of a certain form
of porcelain may be forgotten these
thousand years, and so may the men whe
discovered this color and that, and those
who found out the secret of under glaze
and over; the way to heat just so much
at one stage of the painting and just so
little at asnother; the inventor of a har
monious blending of all that his prede
cessors had discovered. But all their
work told, and here is the result-a bit of
porcelain that when examined at leisure
and in the sympathetic frame of mind is.

A Lesson to Horsemen.
A Canadian writer draws attention to
the fact that many horses are subjected
to much pain by the bits being put intc
their mouths on very cold mornings with
out precaution being taken to free them
from frost. He makes the following re
marks on the subject, which are certainly
worthy of consideration: "The bits should
be carried into the house and thawed out
by the kitchen stove, or dipped into a
pail of water. If you want a lesson you
will not soon forget in regard to this
matter, put your tongue against a bit
that has been exposed all night to a zero
temperature. It will stick fast, and you
will not get it free without leaving some
of the skin behind." Giving horses ice
water is. also cruel, and not calculated to
conserve the health of the most useful
helper man has on the farm.-Chicago
The Deadly Jungle Fever.
Siam's great teak and ebony forests
are several hundred miles from the coast.
These are so dense that the superintend

Fritz-an American-consumed two oa
three months in cutting a way for a line
through a forest of sixty-five miles.
There was an advance party of some
500 natives cutting the trail, and a sec
ond party of 170 putting up the poles
and wire. Elenhants were used for all
carrying. So terrible was the jungle
fever that in that one jungle some 250
natives died within two months. If a
dose of twenty grains of quinine.failed to
break the fever death almost immedi
ately ensued.-Carter Harrison in Chi

Smenced taking phosphorus for a nerve

began to impair him. Last week he was

his lower jaw was crumbling away. His
physicians are giving him stimulants,
but he constantly begs for a few pills of
