BLUCHERS LOVE OF GAMBLING
How the King Cured 111m of tho Expos
slvo Ilablt
In those wnr limos anecdotes oi
great soldiers are being revived and
many of these stories throw a sidelight
on the private lives of men fainoua
in the worlds history remarked a
German American citizen of St
Louis who wns once a sergeant in the
German army
Old Uncle Bluchdr or Bluechcr
nstho Germans called him who saved
the day nt Waterloo and TJrought
about Hid defeat of the great Napo
leon was a character and he was an
inveterate gambler according to tlnj
sioncs iianaeu aown in uve uerman
army said Mr Meyer Blucher was
a curious old fellow according to the
army tradition Did you never heai
the story of what he said about the of
ficer accused of drinking Well orte
fino day the colonel of a regiment went
to Bluqher to complain about anothoi
colonel who ho said was always
drunk The great general opened a
drawer and produced a notebook
from which he read about the gallant
conduct of the accused in certain des
perate engagements Closing the
book with a bang and throwing it oh
the table he looked the accuser stead
ily in the face and said I wish to
God sir that you would get drunk
too
Yes I know a somewhat similar
story is told of President Lincoln in
reference to Gen Grant continued
Mr Meyer after being interrupted
but tho German books published
more than half a century ago tell that
story about old man Blucher
But Gen Bluchers own habits
gave his friends much concern Blu
cher like many prominent men of his
time was a reckless gambler The
Icing who was much attached to him
had paid hie debts over and over again
but it was no use The old marshal
had gone through his wifes property
as well as his own and his pay was al
ways spent in advance Once he was
fdead broke and had to go to the
king I get you out of this scrape
will you promise me not to gamble
again said the king Blucher gftve
the promise and added as the king
gave him 100000 thalcrs I will go
straight home to my wife and settle
half of this money upon her so that I
shall not be able to touch it and I will
then pay up all my debts and never
touch a card any more
Blucher went home gave 50000
to his wife and after dinner sallied
forth to pay his debts At midnight
Bluchers wife was roused from her
slumbers by one of her husbands
staff officers who had been sent foi
25000 thalcrs Dear good man
said the lady I know he would want
it before morning so I have put up
just that sum in a package for him
Here it is and tell him to he careful
about the cold air coming home and
to muffle up well
The officer departed only to re
turn after a few hours for the rest of
the money with the same success
Blucher went home to breakfast in the
morning having lost every penny of
tho kings gift at play
Again Blucher went to the king
told him tho whole story and listened
attentively to all the reproaches until
his majesty said Uncle for ho al
ways called Blucher uncle I
thought you gave me your sacred
word of honor that you would not plaj
cards for monoy again No sir an
swered Blucher I did not give my
sacred word of honor Will you give
it to me now asked the king Achl
Mein Gott That is a hard thing to
ask from Blucher replied the hero
of Waterloo But after some gruin
bling tho sacred promise was given
and old Vorwarts stopped gam

A PRINCES DISOBEDIENCE
Son of the Late Russian Emperor Who
Refused to Obey an Order
The third son of tho Russian em
peror while in tho naval service was
holding the rank of midshipman when
the flagship on which he was serving
was wrecked on the cost of Denmark
Tho admirarordered tho lifeboats to
bo lowered and directed Michael to
take charge of the first one The royal
midshipman declined to obey
I am your commanding officer and
I order you into tho boat cried the
admiral
I cannot oboy you returned tho
prince It would not become tho son
of the omperorto be first to lcavo the
ship I shall romain with you till the
last
But I shall put you under arrest1
iur aisoocuienco as soon us circum
stances will allow me
I mean no disobedience but I can-
not ohcy persisted Michael
Then as soon os temporary shelter
was obtained tho rigid discipline of
naval life was resumed and tho young
Srinco was placed under arrest for
isobodienco to orders Tho Russian
minister at Copenhagen being at qnco
informed of tho facts telegraphed
them to the emperor and received this
reply
I approve tho act of tho admiral
for placing tho midshipman under ar
rest for disobeying orders and I bless
