A MAD KING'S FREAKS
SOME OF THE WAYS LUDWIG HAO
OF AMUSING HIMSELF.
Expensive Opera at llalrouth?Brilliant
Turnouts Used at Night In tho Forests.
Driving; Horses Crazy That IIo Might Be
If Ludwig II, the young king of Ba?
varia, wub uind, Itwns from excess of Uptj
csty. Tho monarch of ono of tho smallest
kingdoms of tho world, his opinion of
himself was magnificent beyond all dreams
of grandeur Ordinary people were not
sufficiently exalted to bo his companions.
Ordinary occupations afforded him no
gratification. All thu ohateaus and pal?
aces which ho inherited when ho caino to
the throne woro squalid for one so great.
Architecture nnd building woro his ruling
hobbies, and ho was thus able to gratify
tho erne delusion by building magnificent
edllloes, the second by occupying bis time
in tho most extraordinary fashions and tho
third by shunning society and escaping
the Inspection of ordinary oyos, either in
his gorgeous retreats or by retiring to ono
of tho more humble dwellings ho oroctod
on various mountain summits, whoro a
few attendants awaited his unoxpeoted
visits. Ludwig's mania for solitude took
tho most unexpected twists. Ho enjoyed
this own company best on those occasions
when people whose minds are less phe?
nomenally balanced consider companion?
ship most essontlnl. It was his fancy to
have dramatic and musical performances
for himself alono. Unfortunate theatrical
managers and indignant musical directors,
not daring to resist the royal whim, were
driven to wasto thoir talent by providing
entertainments. The theater was dark?
ened, tho orchestra, the chorus and the
full dramatic company were grudgingly
provided, ono and all detesting tho work of
putting forth thoir best efforts for the
nmusomont of nn empty bouse, save for
tho solitary llguro silting silent and mo?
tionless in thu shadow of tbo royal box.
Musiu Ludwig loved, and many of bis
Wildest extravagances nnd maddest acts of
prodigality were ?lue to tho Influence of
Wagner, his ono friend und adviser. It
was Wagner who prompted his most tran?
scendent folly, tho erection of a huge
then tor at Duircuth for that composer's
glorification. One performance nlono en?
tailed an expenditure of ?20,01)0, of which
;Cl?,()U0 was paid by tho king, the rest be?
ing barely covorod by tho sale of tickets.
Reared from his childhood amid tho most
enchanting scenery, Ludwig dearly loved
tho lonely mountains and the silent forests
in which his possessions were so rich. Do
light lug to turn night Into day, ho would
order his horses after dark, and tho jingle
of bis sleigh bells and the big ornok of tho
postilions' whips would bring tbo peas?
antry to their bedroom easements to see
a brilliant equipage, flash by, a phantom
that vanished in a whirl of snow dust, u
dream of red and gold and blnoand silver,
und above tho head of the silent occupant
two crowns glowing with electric light.
It was only tho simple Inhabitants of tho
Bavarian Alps who evor caught a glimpse
of these fairy like vehicles. Tho front of
ono was formed by a gigantic shell borne
by Tritons, with little Cupids seated on its
edge, whoso tiny arms carried back
wreaths to tho royal occupant. Tho orna?
mentation of another was so profuse that,
but three small spaces were loft on tho
panels, and those were occupied by dellcato
mythological scenes painted by the hand
of a famous Munich artist. The king's
sleighs woro nover drawn by fewer than
four hor?cs. He appears to have been fond
of theso animals, which ho called his
"dumb courtiers." But, like everything
elso about him, thoy wero compelled to
suffer in order to gratify their master's
During tho winter of 1874 instructions
were sent to tho royal stnbles that tho 80
best horses thoy contained were for several
days to ho fed on nothing but oats. Tho
grooms Imagined they we.ro to bo entered
for a race. Though a blinding snowstorm
wns raging, Ludwig commanded some
workmen to at onco sot about erecting a
wooden tower in tho forest adjoining his
palace, and around this tower a gallery
was to run. Finally when his plans were
matured ho stationed an orchestra of wind
instruments near this erection, taking up
Iiis own position on tho balcony. In tho
oornflolds near ho had scattered here and
there drums, kettles and some: soldiers
with rifles loaded with powder, and an or?
der was given that each man should re?
main hidden and silent. At a given sig?
nal tho horses were led quietly to the foot
of tho tower. Then the king gave a sign
which was understood by the leader of the
orchestra, by tho drums, kettles, trumpets
and soldiers. In an Instant the most In?
fernal hubbub broke forth. Each drum?
mer vied with the other to beat louder, tho
trumpeters nearly burst their cheeks, there
wero powder explosions, shrill whistles and
most diabolical howls. Tho terrified horses
broke their fastenings. Mad with terror,
they reared, wheeled, zigzagged; plunging
and kicking, they galloped hero and t here;
with blood red nostrils and floating manes
i hoy bolted in idl directions to the jeopardy
of tho orchestra and tho terror of the
drums and kettles in tho fields. One by
otic they disappeared over tho horizon,
white with foam, still snorting and rolling
their eyes. It was days before some of
them wero found. Many were jacked up
enfeebled, still wild and terrified. Some
had reached the mountains; others had
penetrated the woods or become engulfed
In tho marshes. His majesty, however,
was well amused.
The tricks Ludwig played on his horses
ho also inflicted on Iiis servants. Every
tine about him was In danger of lifo and
Umb. Ho injured at loast no persons, and
ono ho killed. It is not to be forgotten,
howovor, that he was mod and ought
long beforo this to have been under med?
ical charge. For soino offenses his attend?
ants worn confined in tho dungeons of Ids
oastlos; for others thoy wero banished to
America. Ono misernblo lackey was
charged with looking too curiously tit bis
eccentric master. For this ho was com?
pelled to wear a black mask over his face
for a wholo year. Another was simply
stupid. Ho hud a seid sot on his forehead.
The king himself pidd rovcrent homage to
n certain treo, and thero was a hedge upon
which he bestowed his benediction as hu

Tho Young- King Alfoneo of Spain?Did
tho Chinese Discover America?
Tho Terrier and the Thief.
Tho Spanish royal children liVo in an
atmosphere of tho most frigid and ox
acting formality that can bo well con?
ceived. It is not only impossiblo for
them to bo as other boys nnd girls aro,
but they cannot oven enjoy any thing
like tho amount of freedom which tho
c hildren of tho English and other royal
families do, and, if it should bo tho
case of the heir to tho throne, so much
tho more rigid is tho etiquette to bo ob?
served. His person is sacred, smd no one
must prcsumo to address him iu famil?
iar terms, but must treat him with, ns
much ceremony as though ho wero
grown man and crowned king. Just
imagine what a stupid, wearisome sort
of thing this must bo to a bright, livo
ly child who would enjoy nothing so
much as a good gamo with others of his
own ngo tuul tho opportunity of sharing
his toys and other good things with
Tho littlo Alfonso ns a small child
was very delicate, and few expected
that ho wonld live to grow up, but lift?
er a timo ins health began to improve,
and then bis education commenced. Of
oonrso lioth bo and bis sisters had sov
oral masters, but there wero also two
English governesses, and tho queen bus
spent as much of her time with, them as
They have always commenced their
day together by having breakfast in a
family party at K o'clock in tho morn?
ing. Then tho children havo spent BOmo
timo in tiro open air, afterward going
in to learn their lessons. Their educa?
tion has been very comprehensive Tho
young king, although only 11 years of
ago, now speaks four languages. At 1
o'clock tho queen and tho children
would moot for dinner, tho latter again
returning to their lessons for a short
time Then perhaps they would all go
out for a drive together.
Since his tenth birthday the king has
appeared in uniform, with his hair cut
in military style?. Nearly all Iiis clothes
and toys havo been bought either in
London or Paris, and, needless to say,
tho toys havo been the most costly that
could bo procured. His fine rocking
horso, for instance, was covered with
tho skin of a real pony.
Did tho Chinese Discover America?
An interesting discovery recently re?
ported is that of a rock covered with
curious characters resembling Chinese,
in Mexico, in tho mountains of Souoro.
According to Tho Great Hound World
tho characters appeared to resemble tho
Chinese so closely that a well educated
Chinaman was asked to go to sec tho
rock and give his opinion about, it. Ho
had no sooner looked at it than ho de?
clared it to Ikj a veritable Chinese in?
scription. He mado a copy of it and has
already translated enough to show that
tho writing was cut in tho stono about
2,000 years ngo. There aro ten lines of
characters on the parts of the rock ex?
posed to viuw.
Tho Chinaman who translated the in?
scription said it was nn account of a
Chinese settlement that had nilOO lx*ui
established in the ploeo where tho stono
was found. Ho said that iu the history
of China t here was a record of an ex?
pedition which had been sent to that
portion of the western exxust which is
now Mexico. If this is true, tho conti?
nent of North America was discovered
by tho Chinese centuries lieforo tho timo
Evidence is coining to light in vari?
ous parts of the globoof the tremendous
journeys that were undertaken by the
Chinese in the early days of civiliza?
tion. It has lately been discovered that
they at one time formed colonies in tiro
islands of tho Pacific ocean. In Aus?
tralia evidences have also been discov?
ered of Cbinese habitation.
Tho Terrier nnd tho Thief.
In many places dogs aro not allowed
to outer tho cars ov omnibuses. A littlo
while ngo a lady in Paris, accompanied
by a very small pet terrior, entered an
omnibus, and, not wishing to im fined
or turned out, she popped the clog into
her dress pocket. Shohndnot gone very
fur before tho man who sat next to her,
and who was a pickpocket, cautiously
und gently pnt his hand insido her
pocket, in order to steal her pnrso or
her money. Ho got what ho littlo ex?
pected, for the terrier instantly fasten?
ed its sharp teeth into his lingers, mak?
ing him cry out with pain and fright.
Of oourst! ho was found out and was
quiokly seized by thu other passengers
and handed over to thu police
In tho Doldrums.
A sad nnd hitter memory
Full often comes to me,
Like chilblains in the winter
Or n<> sugar in the tea.
A beetle crawling down my hack,
Or, when 1 have not dined,
Tho siyht of jnm and marmalade
Will bring it to my mind.
If you havo had a penny
And lost it down a nick
Or stroked a playful donkey,
Wbieh repaid you with a lock;
If you have chosen RandwicbeS
Without a scrap of lean
And choked upon tho mustard,
Von will know tho thins I mean.
Put you thai found a penny
When you craved a currant'bun
Or had n pin about you
When your collar came undone.
Or \o.i who sold your skates tho day

Or ft el w hat I havo felt.
Some people who are sorrowful
Will tell their grief In full
And wring your fingers till y?ru moan,
Or give your hnir a pull,
Or borrow things to on so their minds,
Or boat on others' breasts,
Or make a call at dinner timo
And ngitnto the guests.

And food on tarts nnd gingerbread
Or poaches when they're cheap.
