THE EXTORTED KISS.
To tho north of Europe, at tho en?
trance of tho gulf of tho Bultio sen,
staiuls a city resembling in its sito "tho
queen of tho Adriatic." This second
Venice is known by the naino of Stock?
holm, where in former days reigned two
of tho wisest and best of monarchs, by
name Gnstnvus the Groat. Tlio lirst, be?
cause of Iiis patriotism, skill and gen?
ius, had rescued his country from the
subjugation of tho Dane, and the sec?
ond, by ids indomitable energy and
military knowledge, had exalted her to
tho first rank among the nations of the
world. Tho latter dying in l(>4:i, tho
crown devolved upon his daughter,
Christino, thou scarcely 10 years of age.
It was a morning of .luly, l(?4?, in
Stockholm. Tho nir was resounding
with merry ringing of bells, the roaring
of artillery and tho shouts of tho popu?
lace, for it was the natal day of tho
youthful queen. Nobles, squires and
tho learned of the land bad congregated
to pay their homage to their youthful
sovereign, and the peasant from the
most distant regions of Sweden had
contrived to make bis way to Stockholm
to gain a glance of tho fair creature,
whose fnmo sounded throughout tho
world, and whoso learning had been ex?
tolled by Descartes and Sumuise.
TllO court of the palace, was thronged
with anxious spectators, and the troops
were ranged in due order to greet tho.
appearance of tho queen, when suddenly
tins windows were thrown open and
tho flower of Sweden?ladies, nobles and
officers?appeared in the most gorgeous
uniforms. All eyes were directed to one
point, and a universal cry arose of "Sho
comes!" But Christina was not there.
It was the young and handsome Count
Lngnrdic, the favorite of tho queen,
who appeared nnd, having waited till
the enthusiasm of tho populace had sub?
sided, read as follows:
"A bold and insolent peasant having
dared to insult her majesty, it is deemed
expedient that ho should Buffer punish?
ment, but in consideration of tho day,
and that no cloud should mar tho fes?
tivities, the queen ordains him to re?
ceive l? blows iu the proseuco of tho
assembled multitude as a warning to
The chief of the police, with his as?
sistants, having conducted tho prisoner
into tho center of tho court, executed
tho sentence. The poor fellow with
difficulty refrained from giving vent to
bis sufferings, and the people looked on
witli amazement and pity at so sudden
and ignominious a punishment. It, ap?
peared that this man was a poor young
miner who bad coma from Norberg to
Stockholm to share in the sports and
pleasures of the birthday of his queen.
His crime arose from his ignorance of
the laws of etiquette. It had been told
him in tho province of Wcstmaulaud
tbnt on this day it was tho custom of
the sovereign to be not only nccessiblo
to her court und tho nobles of the land,
but also to the meanest of her subjects;
that all had tho privilege to approach
and kiss the royal hand.
Kiss the hand of a queen, the band
of Christine?she that was tho idol of
his life, whoso portrait was tho only
ornament, that graced his smoky cabin
?it was a happiness which lie had never
hoped to enjoy, and the young miner
resolved at all hazards, all trouble and
fatigue to journey to Stockholm and
share in the royal condescension. From
Norberg to Stockholm was a long and
fatiguing jonrney, and his means were
not tho most ample. But this was noth?
ing?tho image of Christine was to him
as the londstnr to the mariner, and he
reached Stockholm the evening before
the royal birthday.
Having arrived, bo directed his steps
to the church of St. Nicholas to ask of
heaven many years of glory and happi?
ness to the youthful sovereign, and
then with a portion of ids little means
purchased a smart costume, in which
having attired himself he rambled
about the city, feasting Iiis eyes on the
many wonders which for tho first time
he had beheld, and now to him ap?
peared almost ns creations of fairyland
The morning dawned bright and
beautiful, and the forts of Fredericks
burg and Waxolm announced that Chris?
tine hud reached her sixteenth year.
Awakened by tho roar of artillery, Carl
started from tho ground where, like
many others, he had passed the night
in slumber, and, although yet early,
found the streets thronged with thou?
sands of inhabitants, evincing their en?
thusiasm in every possible manner. As
the day wore on Carl mingled with a
train who wero proceeding to the pal?
ace, ami from Iiis smart attire and
handsome iiguro contrived, although
unintentionally, to pass the guard and
enter the vestibule. The poor fellow,
bewildered and delighted with the mag?
nificence which on every hand sur?
rounded him, kept wandering about, re?
gardless as ho was ignorant of ail eti?
quette, jostling and pushing aside no?
bles, ladies, officers and other function?
aries?in shei t, all who impeded him.

gallery, nis simple costume nttrooted
the gazo und called up tho astonishment
of tho assembled multitude. Murmurs
upon-murmurs rose all nrouud, but Btill
Carl kept advancing. He wua ignorant
of the storm thou gathering and had
proceeded as far as tho door of tho hall
of audienco when tho officer iu waiting
demuudod his name and busiucss. Ho
VMS about to reply when, catching a
glanco of Christine, his enthusiasm
knew no hounds, and pushing the officer
aside ho rushed into tho royal presence,
seized tho hand which at that moment
was extended to the president of the
senate und pressed it to his lips.
At sight of Carl and his boldness
Christine uttered a scream and -with?
drew her baud, while a hundred arms
were in a moment raised to chastise tho
peasant slave who had insulted the
officer and aspired to an honor rcservod
but for tho titled and tho rich. And
such was the crimo for which ho was
thus disgraced?a crimo arising from
his ignorance and which merited not so
ignominious a punishment.
When the last blow had falleu, he
bounded from tho hands of the guards,
and casting his eyes toward the palace
exclaimed, "I swear before God, Chris?
tine, that a day will como when I shull
kiss thy royal hand!" Then, regarding
his punisher with a look of ferocity, ho
dashed wildly through tho crowd.
Tho next day the miner had quitted
Stockholm, but ho was never again
heard of at Korbcrg.
Five years after this two prisoners,
the one n young mail of somo six and
twenty years, accused of robbery, the
other the head of a band of highway?
men, together confined in a dungeon of
tho fort of Frederioksburg, were thus
"Ah," said the young man, "what I
regret most is that I shall never again
behold her I love."
"Child," replied tho robber, "in a
few years thou wilt bo liberated. Do
not despair, for if sho thou lovest is
really faithful you may yet be happy.
Listen. Cur young and beautiful queen
once ordered 15 blows to bo adminis?
tered to the shoulders of a poor fellow
who, struck with an unconquerable pas?
sion for her, dared to respectfully press
his coarse hps to her dainty lingers, and
for which lie was disgraced as if he had
committed a crime of tho most daring
character. But be swore before Cod
that a day would urrivo when the bund
which had been refused him should be
pressed to Iiis lips and the mouth which
commanded his punishment would sm
to him for mercy.
"That day so much desired seemed ns
if it ?would never arrive, but it came at
last. It was during the ( base when the
queen in her ardor because separated
from her companions, and she found
herself alone in the middle of a deep
fortist. Suddenly sho was surround) d
by a baud of robbers, who seized her
coarser, ignorant of her quality. 'Re?
spect me!' she cried. 'I am your queen!'
The words fell liko lightning on my
heart. The hour of retribution had ar?
rived. 'Look on me,1 I said. 'Do you
not remember me? I am Carl, tho poor
miner who onco presumed to kiss thy
pretty hand, and for which you ordered
him to bo scourged in the face of all
Stockholm on thy natal day, but I swore
beforo God that a day would arrive
when I should press it to my lips. It
has arrived, and my oatii shall now be
accomplished.' I advanced toward her,
but my heart, failed me, und I wept like,
" 'Prostrate thyself,' said she, recov?
ering her wonted dignity and courage.
'Those whom I permit to salute my
hand must approach on bended knee.'
"She extended to me her hand, and
kneeling I pressed it to my lips, proud
and happy that I had fulfilled my oath.
I departed, first having conducted her to
the right path. The next day I and my
companions were surprised and taken.
But, never mind?I still hold it as a
truth, for experience has proved it, that
in love we should never despair. Then
is always a favorable moment, and all
that is necessary is to he watchful, and
when it does arrive to permit it not to
escape us. Do not despair. I hope yet
to see many happy hours."
The jailer opened the door of the pris?
on and pronounced the name of Curl.
"Along, my lad!" tried he to the
Carl was about to reply, bat was pre?
vented by the keeper continuing:
?Hush! It is useless. The gallows is
