The Origin of i'tiilopecaa.
There wjs tmce (icatful prince1!
who hid i (trout fondues for almonds,
ml ato tlicm constantly, but nothing
would induce tier lo marry, ami in order
to rid hereon uf he futturi, or whom
hero Here grait ounihcr, tho invented
he following device : To every prince
tho nui'lit her hand dio f relented the
fcalfof a double almond, while t-he Jc
the other half, and raid: "if jour lonl
hip can aucceed in getting me fa take
anything Iron) your hand More I say
the word 'I remember,' then I am ready
to become your bride. liut if, nn tbc
contrary, you receive anything from me,
without thinking to speak thcto word,
then you must aptee to have your hair
navel entirely off your head and leave
This, however was sn artful stratagem,
for, according to tlio couit ciHtom, no
une dare (o hand anything directly to
the princes, but fir to the court lady,
who then offered it to hir. Hut if, on
the other lurid, the princess bhould de
tiro to cive or take anything who could
refuse her? Soil was u;e'!.s f r her
mitors to make tho trial ; fur when they
fceuied likely to be succcieful, nnd had
livcrtclthe princess fo that alio was
ubout in take something from them, the
court lady always stepped between, and
cpniled the best laid plan.
Wheu the princess wished to di.poc
of one of thctn ehe would appear so
chirming and encouraging to htm that
he would be entirely fjo:nated, and when
ho fat at her feet, overcome wilh jny,
then sho would seize upon anything near
her as t!iough by accident : "Tiiko this
m a rcmetnberance of me," and when ho
had it in his hind', before be could think
or speak tho necesiary words, there
would spring nut at him, from it, per
haps a frog, or a hornet, or a bit, and t-o
d'.irtle him that he would for.ct I ho
vorda. Then, upon the spot, he w;n
thriven, and away with him This went
tin for some years, and in all ihe palaces
of the other kingdoms the princes wore
wi;:s. Thus it cuie to be the custom
from that time.
Finally it happened that a foreign
prince came upon eotno peculiar business,
nnd by accidunt saw the almond princess
lie thought her very beautiful, and at
once prcceived the btralagem.
A friendly little gray man had given
bin an upplo thxt once a year he was
privileged to small, and thca thcro came
in his mind n very wise idea, and he had
become much renowned, on account of
his deep wisdom. Now, it was exactly
time for him to nuke use of his apple
So, with the scent from it camo this
"If thou wouldst win in tho game of
giving and taking, under no circum
stances must thou cither give or take
So ho had his hands bound in hii belt,
and went wilh his matthal to the plooe,
and asked to ho allowed to eat his
almond. The princes was secretly much
plua'cd with him, and immediately
handed him an almond, which his mar
thai took and placed in his mouth. The
princess inquired what this meant, and,
moreover, why he constantly carried his
hands in his gridlo.
Ho replied thai at his court the custom
was oven more strongly enforced than at
Iter's, and ho dared not givo or take any
thing with bis bands, at the most, only
with his head and feet. Then tho prin
cess laughed and paid :
"In this case we will never be able to
have our little gatr.c together."
He sighed ood answered:
"Not unless you will Lo p'eised to
take something from ray boots."
' That can never happen 1" exclaimed
tho whole court.
"Why have you come hither," asked
the princess, angrily, "when you have
buch stupid customs ?"'
"Because you aro so beautiful," re
plied iho prince. And if I cannot win
you, I may nt least have the pleasure of
"On tho other hand, I have no eimilar
gratification," eaid the.
So tho prineo remained at tho palace,
nnd be pleated her more and more, but
when the humor seized her, the tried in
every manner to persuade him to take
his hands from his girdle, and receive
something from her. She also entertained
him charmingly, and frequently offered
him dowers, bonbons and trinkets, and
finally her bracelet, but not once did he
forget and stretch out his hand lo tako
them, for tho pressure of the gridle re
minded him in time. So he. would nod
to his marshal, and ho receiving thorn,
saying, "Yc remember."
Then tho princess wruld become im
patient, and would exclaim : "My hand
kerchief hat fallen I Can your Lordship
pick it up for me?" Whereupon the
prince would fasten his spur into it, and
wave it carelessly, while tho princess
would have to bend and remove it from
h foot, angrily saying, "I remember."
Thus a year passed away, and bo prin
eess said to herself :
"This cannot remain so. It must be
settled in one wuy or the other."
She said to the prince :
"I have one of the finest gardens in
the world, I will show your lordship
over it to day.
Tho prince smelt of his apple, and as
they entered Ihe garden, he said :
"It is very beautiful here, and in or
der that we may walk near each other in
f cao, and not be disturbed by the desire
to try our game, I beg you, my lady,
that for this ono hour you will take upon
you the custom of ray court, and let
your hands also be fastened. Then we
will be safe from each other's art, and
there wilt be nothing to annoy us."
Tbe princess did not feet very safe
bout this arrangement, but he begged
strongly that ehe could not refuse him
this smsll favor, tto Ihey went on alore
together, wltfi their hands fsstencd in
tbeir girdles. The birds sang, the eua
fr'ioft aimtjr, n$ from the tree tvV roJ
lierrics hung so Ion Tu they tituihc?
their cheeks as they passed. The prin
cos saw thorn and cxcUiuied :
"What a pity that your lordship is tot
Llc lo pick a few fur me 1"
I '?fecc8iy knows no Uw, sai4 Itio
prince, and, bo broke on of tho chcr'icf
wilh his teeth from a branch and offc!c4
iMn the princess from hittiioulh.
I iho princess could not uo otherwise
i than receive it from his mouth, and so
her face was brought close to hts So,
when she had the cherry tet.-ccn her
lips, and. a kiss from him tosldes. she
as tiot nblo to say that instant, "1 re
member." Then he cried, joyfully, 'Good morn
ing, much loved one," and drew his
hands from his girdlo and embraced her.
And they spent the test of their lives
together in perfect peace and quietness.
From the German of Oustav Freytag.
Two Irishmen engaged in peddling
packages of linen, bought an old mule
to aid in carying the bundles. Kach
would ride awhile or "ride and tie" as
tho saying is. Une day the Irishman
who was on foot, got close to the heels
of his mule-hip, when he received a
kick on one of his bhins. To bo re
vcugrd he picked up a ttono and hurled
it nt the mule, but by accident struck
his cotnpanirn on the back of bis head.
Seeing whit he had done, ho stopped and
began to groan and ruh his sliin. The
one on tho mule turned aud asked :
"What's the matter?"
"The cratur's kicked me,'' was tbc
"lie iabers," said the other, "he's did
that same to me on tLc back of me
Kiss:no tiis Who.no Woman An
amusing ini-ttikc occurred on the Mil
waukio and Liod La Crosse railroad re
ccntly. In the fourth seat back of the
stove, in one of the passenger cars, sat a
gentleman and lady, sweet and gushing
ns tlio luiry ones ol olilen times, it i c
arm encircled her waist, and his c)e
wcro fixed on the face of his companion
with all the earnestness of a ltouico. In
short, they were the observed ol all
In the first sent back of tlio couple
alluded to, sat a demure looking lady,
interested in the display of affection in
front of her, so natural and touching.
As the train approached a tuunel, the
ardent lover left his scat for some pur
pose, and when part way through, when
all was dark as night, he groped his way
buck and jit't as tho train begin to
emerge into tho least glimmer of light,
there was a yell which startled the entire
load of passengers. The poor fellow had
gone one scat too far back, and had
seated himself in tbe wrong one, and was
trying his best to kiss the demure lady,
who couldn't see it. He lit out in a
hurry, and wilh the most sheepish look
ever seen, took his place beside ihe girl,
while the spectators were canvuUcd with
The Worcester (.Mass ) Spy remarks
that "independent journalism," as now
practiced by those who make the loudest
professions of it, apparently consists in
abusing everybody else by direct attac',
sneers or inuendo, and praising one's
