A Ucinai kablw Woman
Arnonp- all the
women I have ever
the Baroness Von Xanthus of
Buda-Pestli, in Hungary, stands out as
tho one possessing the most remarkable
history both for romance, pathos and
prominence for a strange comminglinp:
of talents, and I hopo all women will
bo as interested in the recital of her
story as I was when sho told it to mo,
and as I observed in a visit I made her
in 1873 at her house in Pesth.
To begin, I must simply stato that it
smacks more of romance than of real
ity, and it is but the romanco of reali
ty; and all tho romanco of it grew out
of tho political troubles in Hungary
when Kossuth was banished and came
to this country. At that timo tho pres
ent Baroness was only a young girl of
16, and Janus von Xautlim was hardly
20, and yet they.lovod each other well.
Sho was of a family that took part with
tho conquering country, and tho young
Baron had already allied himself to
tho patriots who fought with them,
and when Kossuth was banished, ho
was also arrested, and was offered his
freedom and his bride if he would turn
traitor to his principles. Tho young
couple were left alone for a short time,
in the hopo that tho lovo they bore for
each other would cause him to recede,
and, as ho was of a very Influential
family of Hungarians, it was decided
that ho should; but tho two lovers em
ployed their time in nerving each other
for sacrifice aud in mingling their
tears and vows of constancy tilldeath;
and then when the parents found that
all was in vain, theygavoup angrily,
and ho was exiled witli Kossuth and
camo to this country. No letter could
pass between the young lovers, and the
daughter was bidden to forget him,
and every effort was made to induco
her to marry, but no threats nor entreat
ies prevailed; sho persisted firmly in
her refusal to listen to anyone, and, to
pass tho lonesome years, sho began to
writo and to paint, as well as to dovoto
much of her time to tho study of nat
In the meantimo young Janus von
Xanthus had succeeded hero in making
friends and name, and, as ho had be
come an American citizen, he obtained
the appointment of United Status Con
sul in Mexico. He wroto several books,
nearly all of a scientilic turn, relating
to natural history as found in America
and the tropics, and devoted, in short,
all his spare timo in research and in
gathering specimens. Whilo in Mexi
co and Central America ho obtained, I
think, 300 different varieties of hum
ming birds. His books were published
in Austria in an assumed name, and
finally he was engaged by tho very
country which had exiled him to make
an important scientific voyage with
several other very promineut men.
All these years his faithful young
fiance waited upon a word directly
from him, though her woman's instinct
told her that those books which caused
so much admiration wero written by
him, and she read between tho lines
that they wero at least pursuing tho
same train of thought and study.
Sometimes he heard from friends of
her, but never from her, and yet each
felt sure of tho other's faith.
Think of the yearning and heartache
that was their portion all these years,
with no communication but what could
bo sent through their books and which
all tho world could read. At last her
parents died and at about the same
time, through tho influence of friends,
Von Xanthus was at liberty to return
to his country. He had written four
teen books and collected enough of nil
kinds of curiosities to form the nucleus
of a large museum, which he did on his
return to Pesth, and which is a mag
niticeut triumph for him as well as
honor to the city. Tho help and intel
ligence of his wife was absolutely iu
dispensible iu the arrangement of his
museum, which is placod by the Gov
ernment under the life-directorship of
Von Xanthus in recognition of his ser
vices. But in all these years that had pass
d both had grown from youth to
middle age, and they both wear crowns
of gray hair now, and both think sadly
of the lost years of their youth, yet
their ago has brought them in raro
fruition, honors and fame, and now
such a deep, full happiness that is al
most pain. I never saw that noble
couple together that tho tears did not
start into my eyes and my heart acho
to think of all tho years that fato sep
arated them, and yet I was ready to
sing a psean of thankfulness that they
were at last united and that both had
been so faithful.
Their homo is in Pesth, near tho mu
seum and tho Academy of Arts and
Science, of which both aro members
and ho a Director, and it is filled to re
pletion with everything beautiful, char
acteristic or curious that you can imag
ino; and when this gray-hairud couylo
stand side by side, ho tall and broad
shouldered and strong, with intelli
gence and strength flashing from his
black eyes, and she in her tall, willowy,
womanly grace and beauty of face and
soul, thero are none to coruparo w-ith
them. Oliver Harper, in the New York
Weaving KiiOblts' Wool.
Yesterday I drove to St. Innocents
to seo tho Angora rabbits, whoso fur
furnishes a soft and spin nnblo wool,
out of which tho peasants make a
quantity of warm garments. It was
curious to see tho peasant girl take tho
rabbit fur in. her fingers, and theu ad
ding it to her thread, go on spinning
the coarso yarn out of it on a long
spinning wheel. We then went in to
seo tho rabbits; pretty creatures with
largo opal eyes and very long fur, ex
ceedingly soft. They aro "pluckod"
alive, aud tho process is said not to
hurt them. Indeod, thoy are so llutl'y
that perhaps it is a relief. Sonio were
black, othors white, and others gray.
I noticed no other colors. This fur is
not only spun, but Is crocheted and
knitted into a coarse canvas. Tho
finished goods aro very expensive, and
I did not thiuk them equal to woolen
articles of " corresponding grades.
Thoy aro curious, and nil visitors to
Aix fool bound to carry away somo lit
tlo spocimon or othor of this rather
anomalous rabbit work. Cor. Boston

The figures showing the enormous yearly
sales of Kidney-Wort, demonstrate its value
as a medicine beyond dispute. It is a pure
ly vegetable compound of certain roots,
leaves and berries known to have special

these are remedies acting directly on the
Liver and Bowels. It is because of this
combined action that Kidney-Wort has
proved such an unequalled remedy in all
diseases of these organs.
