In the suriiiir of 17S-S tho Huron

nf n bodv of old troops and recruits, to

They halted to rest and refreshed tho
men and horses at a small village not
far from tho lines of tho army. After
rating tho best suppers that money
rould procure, the liaron lighted bis
meerschaum and strollud for tho even
ing walk. Perceiving an unusual
crowd about one of the bivouac lires, ho
drew near to see what was going on
The object of attraction was a tall
swarthy, dark-eyed and black-haired
Iiohcrnian woman, dressed rather rich
ly in a sort of half-Oriental costume,
who held tho hand of a scarred and
erav-hairod veteran. She was telling
"Son of the Danube," said she,
"vour davs are numbered. Fire and
steel have, spared you thus far but tho
bullet is cast that will cost you tho
number of your mess. Ere three
moons have waxed and waned, the
horse and the rider will have parted
soldier turned awav
tho nronhetcss with a blank look.
"There won't be many of our troops
left. Lieutenant," said an old hussar,
touching his cap to the I'aron, "if the
woman speaks true. .She has predict
ed the same fafe to half-a-dozen of us."
"Who is she?' asked the Baron.
"A vivandiere," replied the hussar.
"Faith! she sells good wine and brandy
they say and gives credit sometimes,
on good security. She never loses, I
fancy and then sho turns a penny by
"Who comes next for his fortune?''
asked the Bohemian, glancing her
brilliant, snake-liko eyes around the as
semblv. "Who craves knowledge of
the wise Zela?"
"That do I, mistress," said the Bar
on, gayly. advancing and ungloving his
hand. "I have no faith in your fore
bodings, though my lire-eaters seem so
daunted by them."
The fortune-teller curiously scanned
tho lines on tho Baron's palm.
"The tweutioth of August!" said she.
"The twentieth of August!" repeat
ed the Baron; "that's wonderfully ex
plicit. What am I to make of that? I
nsk you for my fortune, and you re
"Tho twentieth of August!" repent
ed tho fortune-teller, dismissing him
with a wave of her hand. "I tell no
more to-night. But forget not tho

And with these words she turned in
to a tent where her merchandise was
stored, and drew the canvas over
opening. Tho deep voice of the
eeress, her striking face, figure
manner, tho oracular laconism
mystery other reply, contributed to fix
her words on tho Count's memory, and
mingling with his prayors that night,
"tho twentieth of August" seemed
whispered by a busy demon.
In duo time the Count reached tho
army, whoso fatiguo and dangers ho
shared. It is well known that in this
war the Turks mado no prisoners.
Their leaders had set the price of n du
cat on each head brought into camp,
and spahis and jauissaries neglected
no opportunity of earning it. This ar
rangement was fatal to tho Austrian
outposts. There was scarcely n night
that the lurks did not come in super
ior numbers to seek for heads, and
their expeditions woro conducted with
such secresy and promptness that they
rarely failed, and often at day-break a
portion of the camp was guarded only
by decapitated trunks. The lVinco of
C'obnrg conceived the idea of sending
every night strong pickets of cavalry
outside Hie ciiain ol Viileltes, to pro
tect them. These pickets consisted of
from one to two hundred men; but the
lurkisu generals, irritated at seeing
their men disturbed in tho wholesale
and retail business they had engaged
in, sent detachments vet more nuiner
ous against the intidel pickets, which
yielded them a yet handsome per cap
ita return. The picket service, there-
lore became ot such a nature that,
wnen a man was ucinueu ir n, it, w;ts
really worth his while to settle his lit
tle accounts beforo setting his foot in
Matters were in this state in tho
month of Ajgust. A few skirmishes

tho Baron. "And I shan't tuako my

was tho turn of the Baron's regiment
to furnish a picket for tho night; but
two of Ins comrades were on dutv be
fore him, and the Baron was to pass tho
night in his tent. Evening came tho
horses were saddled, the hussars
mounted, and ready to march, when
the regimental surgeon appeared on

The Baron commanded eighty men.
who wi ro joined by n hundred and
twenty from another regiment, which
brought tho complement up to two
hundred, nil told. The detachment
took post a thousand paces in ndvanco
of the line of the right wing, and rest
ed on a marsh, filled with very tall
reeds. There were no sentinels in front,
but not a man left his saddle. The
carbineers sat with their pieces nn
sluug at full cock, and tho hussars
with drawn sabers, to guard against
surprises. AH was quiet till about a
quarter of two o'clock, and the Baron
was beginning to think that tho night
would pass over without an attack,
when a sudden shout of "Allah! il Al
lah!" burst on the silence, and in one
minute all the horses in the front rank
were hurled to the ground, either by
pistol shots fired at point blank, or tho
shock of seven or eight hundred Turk
"llendinjr to battle
OVreucli high siuWle-l.ow,
With the sword of Azniol
They swept down the foe."
On their side, at least an equal num
ber fell, either from the impetuosity of
their own charge or the deadly fire of
the Austrian carbines. But they knew
the ground, and the Austrians were en
veloped and cut to pieces. Saber
strokes Hew thick and fast fire-arms'
were discharged at random it was al
most impossible to distinguish friend
from foe. Tho Baron received no few
er than eight snber strokes in the ftie.'cc,
botli from the 1 urks and from his own
men. His horse, severely wounded,
fell with him, rolled over on his right
leg, and nailed him to the spot. Tho
Haines of the Turkish pistols lit up at
intervals the scene of strife and butchery-
I he Jiaron raised his eyes and saw
his brave hussars defending themselves
with the courage of despair; but tho
Turks, drunk with opium, made a hor
rible massacre. In a few minutes not
a singlo Austrian was" left standing.
The victors seized on tho few horses
that had escaped unhurt; first plunder
ed the dead and wounded, and after
ward began to cut oil' their heads and
stow them away in sacks they had
brought expressly for the purpose.
The Baron's situation was by no moans
an enviable one. In L zoklers s corps
they almost all knew the Turkish lan
guage. 1 he Baron heard the rufhans
encourage each other to make an end
before succor arrived, and not to leave
a ducat behind, and adding that thcro
ought to be two hundred. Ho knew by
this that they were perfectly well in
formed as to tho strength of the picket.
N lute balls were whistling overhead,
the Baron's horse received a shot
which caused linn to make n convul
sive movement, and enabled Ids rider
to extricate his leg. lie then conceived
the idea of throwing himself, if possi
ble, into tne marsh, and thus escape
the fate of his command. He had seen
several of his command who attempted
tins maneuver taken, but the lire had
slackened greatly now, and the dark
ness inspired him with hope. He had
only twenty paces to traverse, but there
was danger of sinking. Still he sprang
over men and horses, overturning more
than one Turk. Anns were extended
to seize him, and saber-strokes dealt at
him, but his good star and youthful ac
tivity enabled him to gain tho marsh.
At first he sank only up to his knees
he toiled on a little farther, and then
stopped, exhausted by fatigue. Ho
heard one Turk exclaim: "It is impos
sible to do so in the marsh." After
this a dead silence ensued. Tho blood
ho had lost caused tho Baron to fall in
to a state of insensibility which lasted
several hours. When he came to him
self the sun was high up in the heav
He had sunk tin to his hips in the
marsh. Bis hair stood erect upon Ids
head, when he recalled tho fearful im

thoughts, lb) counted his wounds
they were eight in number, but not ono
of them was dangerous. They wero
saber-strokes on breast, back and

uh. lining, nau deadened tho blows.

lie listened iitb'tiiivoly. Tho Turks
had long since departed. From lime
to time the moans of wounded horses
wore wafted to lyni from the lield of
battle as for his men, the Turks had
taken care of theni.
The Baron began to think of extri
cating himself iroin tho place in which
he was, but he was so much exhausted
by the loss of blood that it was a who'o
hour beforo ho stood upon tirm ground.
Though w;ir had deadened his sensibil
ity, still, alone as ho was, it was not
without a sensatoin of fear that he
emerged from the reeds and looked
cautiously about him. JJ a,iVm d
slowly, his eyes resting on tint field of
death; but who could depict his fright
when he found himself suddenly seized
by the arm. He turned rind beheld a
gigantic Arnaut, six tVot high, who had
returned, doubtless, in the hope id find
ing something valuable to reward his
trouble. Never was hope more cruelly
deceived. Yet tho Baron addressed his
captor in the Turkish language.
"Take my watch, my money, my
uniform, but spare my life."
"Ail that belongs to me, and your
head too!" replied tho savage giant.
And with that ho unfastJiied the
chinstrap of the Baron's hussar cap,
and then proceeded to untio his cravat.
The Baron was sinking with weakness,
and had uo weapon. At the slightest
inovcnieut of resistance his enemy
would have immediately sheathed his
broad cutlass in his bosom. Yet he
clung to the Arnaut by tho waist, and
continued to implore him, while he was
baring his throat.
"Take phy on me. My family is
rich. Mako mo your prisoner you
will earn a large ransom.
"1 should have to wait too long for
my money," replied the ruffian. '"On
lv'hold still forme to cut." And ho
removed the Baron's short-pin.
Mill t lie l.aroti clung to him, nnd ho
did not seek to free himself from tho
clasp, doubtless because he relied upon
his strength nnd his arms, nnd per
haps because he experienced a sli dit
emotion ot pity, though not strong
enough to counterbalance the hope of a
As he was removing tho pin Conrad
felt something hard in his belt. It was
an iron hammer. He kept reneatiii"
"Keei) quiet! and these wero doubt
less the last words tho Baron would
have heard if the dread of death so hor
rible had not inspired him to seize up
on tho hammer. Tho Arnaut paid no
attention to it. He was already hold
ing the Baron's head in ono hand and
his cutlass in tho other, when his in
tended victim jerked himself free, fin I,
without losing an instant, dealt a blow
with all his force on the forehead of his
antagonist. The hammer was heavy
and the aim sure. The Arnaut reeled.
The Baron repeated tho blow. Ho
went down, and as he fell his cutlass
escaped his grasp. It is unnecessary
to add that the-Baron seized it a ad
plunged it several times into his body.
Free! saved! the soldier ran to the
outpost, whoe arms were glittering in
the morning sun, that had n.iver seem
ed so bright and glorious to him before,
and succeeded in re-.ch.ng the camp.
The soldiers lied as from a ghosL Tho
same day lie was attacked by a raging
fever, and carried to the hospital.
At the end of six weeks lie was cured
of his fever and his wounds, and re
turned to tho army. Ou his arrival tho
Bohemian gipsy brought him the bas
ket of Tokay she had lost, and congrat
ulated him on his miraculous escape
from death. 'The Baron learned from
his comrades that, during his absence,
sho had predicted a great many occur
rences, ail of which had come to pass
exactly as she had foretold, and this
had brought her a great many consul
tations ami numerous bequests. Tho
whole affair was strange and inexpli
cable, ana shook the skepticism ot tho
In the meanwhile there came to them
from the enemy's lines two Servian
Christians, who had been employed in
the baggage trainxif the Turkish" armv,
and deserted to avoid a punishment
with which they had been threatened.
As soon as they saw the Bohemian
prophetess they recogn'.-'d her, and
declared that she often came to tho
Turkish camp in the night, to render
an account of the nioveiu nts of their
enemies. This surprised the Austrians
very much, for they had often availed
themselves of this woman's services,
and had admired the de xterity with
which she had executed the most peril
ous commissions. But the deserters
persisted in their statement, and added
that they had b.-en present on several
occasions when this woman was des
cribing the Austrian positions to" the
Turks, unfolding their proj-ets, and
urging them to mako the attacks which
look place. A Turkish cipher served
her as a passport. This convincing
proof was found upon her, and she was
threatened to die as a spy,
Before her execution the Baron ques
tioned her about the fortune sho had
predicted to him. Siie confessed that
by means of playing the spy to both par
ties she had often lea1 tied what was un
dertaken on both sides; that those who
secretly consulted her about their hor
oscopes had confided to her many
things, and that sho also trusted agood
deal to guess work. As to what "con
cerned the Baron particularly, sho had
selected him as a striking example to
strengthen her authority, hViug tho fa
tal period a long time beforehand. At
the approach of the time she had ex
cited the enemy to make an attack on
the post of his regiment on the twen
tieth of August. Her relations with
the oflL-ers enabled her to discover that
there were two on the list beforo tho
Baron. To ono of them she sold drug
ged wiuo that caused his sickness, ami
getting near tho other to sell him some
thing just as he had mounted, sho con
trived to thrust a piece of burning tin
der into tho horse s nostrils, whicTi ren
dered him furious and unmanageable.
This was the whole secret of her fore
knowledge. Her punishment was tho
halter. Sho went to the gailows with
a bold, impertinent and defiant air,
leaving not iv relative behind her to
mourn the death ot the gipsy spy.

A test of breeding, or at any rate of
knowledge of tho niecr proprieties of
life, is iii the proper wording of notes

epeC'ed to know the rules of sp 1 irg
and grammar; 1 ut even w ere these
are apparently f.-nniliar. ihere are n r
tainly small signs which betray the

of addressing an I'equaiUanee as if ho
was sending an nr.lcr to iho luioher
around the eorm-r. S.aen it is the
fashion in Anicrien. j,s v. as in 1':um,
to imitate England and where indeed
could we find ft belter model? it might
be well to do it at once, without wad

Anglicism reaches us through the north.
J:i the mother country an order to a
grocer or butcher or any tradesman is
conveyed in the third "person: "Mr.
Jones will oblige Mrs. Esmond by send
ing live pounds of butter." Or "Mrs.
Esmond requests Mr. Jones to semi her
five pounds of 1 utter." If the lady
wishes to write a nolo to some one in
her own position, but not a personal
acquaintance, she would begin "Dear
Mr. Smith." But if she were writing
to an acquaintance in her own rank of
life she would inevitably begin, "My
dear Mr. Smith," the possessive pro
noun or the pronominal adjective, call
it what you choose, but the "My" in
such a caso means, like the "Yours
truly" of a business letter, nothing
more. A New Orleans lady had occa
sion to write a letter of invitation, and
being a lady and well versed in tho
world, she began a note "My Dear Mr.
Biidik." Fancy licr dismay" when the
answer came and she found herself ac
costed as "Mrs. Brown." Did the man
mean to rebuke her undue familiarity?
Did he fear she was growing too fond
of him? or did he simply mean to avow
his own stupidity and incapacity for
taking the hints he might have gleaned
from the phrasing of the lady's letter?
It was 1 1 1 o mi-f' rtiine of a very dis
creet maiden, one who had bccii "aeus-
toined a;l h'T life to the manners of
s ciety, to spend some months in a
small interior town of the south. Aft r
i:e had been for several weeks in the
place, it came to her ears that she was
considered a rather improper oung
person one who might beca.led "f ;..-.:."
Upon investigation she found the idea
came from the notes she wrote to polite
young men who sent her flowers, invita
tions, etc., in which no es she, of courso
ad divs.s--d thorn us "Mv Dear Mr. So-and-So."
Finally one admirer bolder
than the rest remonstrated, begged to
know why she didn't begin her notes
"Mr. Blank?" "And so I should,"
responded she, "if! wished to order a
new pair of shoes from my bootmaker."
Whereupon the young man exclaimed,
'Of course I understand! but others
will be sure to misjudge you!'' And to
this day the young laay is probably re
membered as a very giddy girl.
Now that we have literary classes of
