What more than its castle attracted my
attention in the village of v rauenstcin was
an immense plane-tree, the limbs of which
had originally been trained almost horizon
tally, until, unable to support their own
weight, they were now maintained by a
scatio'.ding of stout props. L'uder the
parental shadow of this venerable tree the
childnn of the village were sitting in every
sort of group and attitude ; one or two of
their mothers, in loose, easy dishabille,
were spinning ; many people were leaning I
against the upright scaffolding ; and a !
couple of asses were enjoying the cool shade '
of the beautiful foliage, while their drivers j
were getting hot and tipsy in a wine-shop, '
the utual sign $i which is in Germany the j
branch of a tree affixed to the door-pout.
As I had often heard of the celebrated
tree of Frauenstein, before which I now
stood, I reßolved not to quit it until I had
informed myself of its history, for which I
1 wall knew I had only to apply to the I
proper authorities ; for in Germany, in j
every little village there exists a huge '
volume, either deposited in the church, or
in charge of an officer called the Schuld- |
heisz, in which the history of every castle, !
town, or object of importance is carefully j
preserved. The yoang peasant roads it j
with enthusiastic delight ; the old man '
reflects upon it with silent pride ; and to j
any traveler searching for antiquarian
lore, its venerable pages are most liberally !
opened, and the simple information they <
contain generously and gratuitously be- ■
On inquiring for the history of thi3 beau
tiful tree, 1 was introduced to a sort of
doomsday-book about as large as a church i
Ilble ; and when I compared this volume !
with a little secluded spot so totally un- j
known to the world as the valley or glen
Frauenstein, I was surprised to tind that I
the autobiography of the latter could be so j
bulky — in nhort, that it had so rnu^h to !
say of itself. But it is the common weak
ness of maD, and particularly, I must ac
knowledge, of an old man, to farcy that i
all his thoughts, a3 well as actions, are of !
vast importance to the world ; why, there- !
fore, should not the humble Frauenatein j
by pardoned for an offense which we are all
in the habit of committing ?
In this ancient volume the rigmarole his
tory of the tree was told with so much ec
centrin German genius, it displayed such a j
graphic description of high-born sentiment
and homely life, and altogether it formed |
so curious a specimen of the contents of
these strange sentimental village histories,
that I venture to submit the following
literal translation, in which the German
idiom is faithfully preserved at the ex- '■
pense of our English phraseology.
The old Count Kuno seized with a trem- j
bling hand the pilgrim's staff ; he wished
to seek peace for his Foul, for long repent- j
ance consumed his life. Years ago he had >
banished from his presence his blooming
Bon, because he loved a maiden cf ignoble
race. Tne son, marrying her, secretly
withdrew. For some time the Count re- >
nuined in hisuastlein good spirits — looked '
cheerfully down the valley — heard the j
stream rush under his windows — thought
little of perishable life. His tender wife i
watched over him, and her lovely daughter ]
renovated his sinking life ; but he who '
lives in too jjreat security is marked in the ]
end by the hand of God, and while it takes :
from him what is most beloved, it warns I
him that here is not our place of abode.
Tne '■ haus frau'' (wife) died, and the
Count buried the companion of his days : I
his daughter was solicited by the most j
noble of the land, and beciuae he wished !
to ingraft this last shoot on a noble stem, j
he allowed her to depart, and then, solitary
and alone, he remained in his fortress. So
stands deseited, upon the summit of the
mountain, with withered top, an oak I — I
mose is its last ornament — the storm sports
with its last few dry leave*.
A gay circle no longer rills the vaulted I
chambers of the cistle — no longer through
them does the cheerful goblet's " clang "
resound. The CourJt's nightly footsteps '
echo back to him, and by the glimmer of
the chandeliers the accoutered images of .
his ancestors appear to writhe and move on I
the wall as if they wished to speak to him.
His armor, Bullied by the web of the vigi
lant spider, he could not look at without
sorrowful emotion. Its gentle creaking
against the wall made him shudder.
"Where art thou," he mournfully ex
claimed; "thou who art banished? O,
my son, wilt tboa think of thy father, as {
he of thee thinks — or * * art thou dead ? j
And is that thy tlitting spirit which rue- I
ties in my armor, and so feebly moves it !
Did I but know where to rind thee, will
ingly to the world's end would I in re
pentant wandeiing journey —so heavily it
oppresses me what 1 have done to thee '. I
can no longer remain forth I will go to
the God ot Mercy, in order, before the
image of Chriat, in the Garden of Olives,
to expiate my sins !"
So spoke the aged man— enveloped his
trembling limbs in the garb of repentance —
to_.k the cockle-hat — and seized with the
right hand (that formerly was accurtomed
to the heavy war-sword) the long pilgrim's
stati". Quietly he stole out of the castle,
the stetp path descending, while the por
ter looked after him astounded, without de
manding " Wnither ?"
For many days the old man's feet bore
him wide away ; at last he reached a small
village, in the middle of which, opposite to
a ruined castle, there stands a very ancient
plane tree. Five arms, each resembling a
stem, bend towards the earth, and almost
touch it. Tiie old men of former times
were sitting underneath it, in the still
evening, just as the Count went by : he was
greeted by them, and invited to repose. As
he seated himself by their side, " You
have a beautiful plane- tree, neighbors, " he
"Yes," replied the oldest of the men,
pleased with the praise bestowed by the
pilgrim on the tree ; "it was nevertheless
" Ho* is that?' said the Count.
"That will I also relate," said the old
man. " Many ycirs ago there came a
young man here in knightly garb, who had
a young woman with him, beautiful and
delicate, but, apparently from their long
journey, worn ou*\ Pale were her cheeks,
and her head, covered with beautiful golden
1 cks, hung upon her conductor's shoulder.
Timidly he looked round — for, from some
reason, he appeared to fear all men ;
yet, in compassion for his feeble compan
ion, he wished to conduct her to some
secure hut, where her Under feet might
repose. There, under that ivy-grown
tower, stands a lonely house belonging to
the lord of the castle ; thither staggered
the unhappy man with his dear burden,
but scarcely had he tntered the dwelling
than he was seized by the Prince, with
whose niece he was clandestinely eloping.
Then was the noble youth brought bound,
and where this plane-tree now spreads its
roots i! o wed his young blood ! The maiden
went into a convent ■ but before she dis
appeared she had this plane-tree planted
on the spot where the blool of her lover
flowed ; since then it is as it a spirit life
were in the tree that cannot die, and no
one likes a little tw ; g to cut cti, or pluck
a cluster blossom, because he fears it would
" God's will be done !" exc!a ; med sud
denly the old Count, and departed.
" That's an odd man !" said the most
venerable of the peasants, eyeing the atran
tier who wa» hastening away ; " he most
have something that heavily oppresses his
soul, for he speaks not and hastens away;
bur, n°ighVjors, the evening draws on apace,
and the evenings in spring are not warm.
I think in the white clouds yonder, toward
the Rhine, are still concealed some snow
storms ; let us come to the warm hearth."
The neighbors went their way, while the
aged Count, in deep thought, passed up
through the village, at the end of which
he found himself before the churchyard.
Terrific black crosses looked upon the trav
eler — *:he graves were netted over with
brambles and wild roses — no foot tore
asunder the entwinement. On the right
hand of the road there stands a crucifix,
hewn in rude art. From a recess in its
pedestal a tlame rises toward the bloody
feet of the image, from a lamp nourished
by the hand of devotion.
"Man of sorrow," thus ascended the
prayer of the traveler, " give me my son
again--by thy wounds and sufferings, give
me peace — peace ! "
He spoke, and turning round towards
the mountain, he followed a narrow path,
which conducted him to a brook, close un
der the flinty, pebbly, grape hill. The soft
murmurs of its waves rippling here and
there over clear bright stones harmonized
with his deep devotion. Here the Count
found a boy and a girl, who, having picked
flowers, were watching them carried away
as they threw tiem iato the current.
When these children saw the pilgrim's
reverend attire, they arose— looked
up— seized the old man's hand,
and kissed it. "(iod bless thee,
children !"' said the pilgrim, whom
the touch of their little hands pleased.
Seating himself on the ground he said,
"Children, give me to drink out of your
" You will find it taste good out of it,
Btranger-mau," said the little girl ; "it is
our father's pitcher in w hich we carry him
to drink upon the vine- hill. Look ! yonder
he works upon the burning rocks ala-i !
ever since the break of day ; our mother
often takes out food to him."
"Is that your father,'' said the Count,
"who with the heavy pickaxe ia tearing
up the ground so manfully, as if he would
crush the rocks beneath ?''
" Yes," said the boy, "our father rr.UFt
sweat a good deal before the mountain will
bring forth crapes ; but when the vintage
comes, then how gay is the scene !"
" Where does thy father dwell, boy ?"
" There in the valley l>eneath, where the
wnite gable-fnd peeps between the trees ;
come with us, stranger-man ; our mother
will most gladly receive you, for it is her
greatest joy when a tired wanderer cal'.s
in upon us."
"Yes," said the little girl ; "then we
always have the best dishes ; therefore do
come — -I will conduct thee."
So saying the little girl seized the old
Count's hand, and drew him forth — the boy,
on the other side, keeping up with them,
sprang backwards and forwards, continu
ally looking kindly at the stranger ; and
thus slowly advancing, they arrived at the
The haus-frau (wife) was occupied in
blowing the light ashes to awaken a slum
bering spark as the pilgrim entered ; at the
voices of her children she looked up, saw
the stranger, and raised herself immedi
ately ; advancing towards him with a
cheerful countenance, she said :
" Welcome, reverend pilgrim, in this
poor hut — if you stand in need of refresh
ment after your toilsome pilgrimage, seek
it from us ; do not carry away the blessing
which you bring with you farther."
Having thus spoken, she conducted the
old man into the small but clean room.
When he sat down, he said
" Woman, thou hast pretty and anima
ted children ; I wish I had such a boy a 9
that ! "
"Yes!" said the haua-fran, "here
sembles his father — free and courageously
be often goes alone upon the mountain,
and speaks of castles he will build there.
Ah '. sir, if you knew row heavy that
weighs upon my heart ! "—(the woman con
cealed a tear).
"Counsel may here be had,'' said the
Count ; "I have no son, and will of yours,
if you will give him me, make a knight—
my castle will some of these days be
empty — no robust son hears my arms. "
" Dear mother !" said the boy, " if the
castle of the aged man is empty, I can
surely, when I am big, go thither ?"
"And leave me here alone?"' said the
"Xo ; you will also go !" said the toy,
warmly ; " how beautiful it is to look
from the hight of a castle into the valley
beneath !"
"He has a true knightly mind," Raid the
Count ; "is he born here in the valley?"
' I "raver and labor," said the mother,
''is Cod's command, and they are better
than all the knightly honors that you can
promise the boy ; he will, like his father,
cultivate the vine, and trust to the bless
ings of Cod, who rain and snnshine gives.
Knights sit in their caßtles, and know not
how much labor, yet how much blessing
and peace, can dwell in a poor man's hut'!
My husband was oppressed with heavy Bor
row ; alas ! on my account was his heartfelt
grief ; but since he found this hut, and works
here, he is much more cheerful than
formerly ; from the tempest of life he has
entered the harbor of peace — patiently he
bears the heat of the day ; and when I
pity him, he says, ' Wife, I am indeed
now happy !' Yet frequently a troubled
thought appears to pierce his soul. I
watch him narrowly— a tear then steals
down his brown cheeks. Ah ! Burely he
thinks of the place of his birth — of a now
very aged gray father ; and whilst I see
you, a tear also comes to me — so is perhaps
now ' —
At this minute the little girl interrupted
her, pulled her gently by the gown, tthi
spoke —
" Mother ! come into the kitchen ; our
father will soon be home."
" You are right," said the mother, leav
ing the room ; "in conversation I forgot

and thought, " Where may, then, thie

Suddenly he was rou«ed from his deep
melancholy by the lively boy, who had
taken an old hunting-spear from the corner
of the room, and placing himself before the
Count, said —
" See ! thus my father kills the wild
boar on the mountains— there runs one
along !my father cries ' Huy ! ' and im
mediately the wild boar throws himself
upon the hunter's spear : the spear sticks
deep into the brain ! it ia hard enough to
draw it out !" The boy made actions as if
the boar was there.
" Kight so, my boy!" said the aged
man ; " bat does thy father, then, oiten
hunt upnn these mountains ? "
"' \ es ! that he does ; and the neighbors
praise him highly, acd call him the valiant
extirpator, because he kills boars which
destroy the corn."
In the mid»t of this conversation the
father entered ; hi» wife r»n towards him
pressed his sinewy hand and spoke :
" "> ou have had again a not laboring

of you. God is gracious to the irdiretri

"Our father is without !' cried suddenly
the boy, threw the hunter's spear into the
rcom, and ran forwards. The little girl
was already hanging at his knees.
" Good evening, father !" cried the boy ;
"come quick into the room— there sits a
stranger- man — a pilgrim whom I bronght
to you."
"Ah! there you havf done well," said
the father ; " one must not allow one tired
to pass one's gate without inviting him in.
Dear wife," continued he, "does not labor
well reward itself, when one can receive
and refresh a wanderer ? bring ua a glass
of our beat home-grown wine — I do cot
know why I am so gay to-day, and why I
do not experience the slightest fatigue."
Thus spoke the husband— went into the
room — pressed the hand of the stranger,
and spoke—
"Welcome, pious pilgrim! yonr object
is so praiseworthy ; a draught taken with
so brave a nan must taste doubly good !"
They sat down opposite to each other in
a room half dark— tne children sat npon
their father's knees.
" Kelate to us something, father, as
usual," said the boy.
"That won't do today," replied the
father, "for we have a guest here— but
what dots my hooter's spear do there?
have you been again playing with it?
Carry it away into the corner."
"You have there," said the pilgrim, "a
young knight who knows already how to
kill boars — also you are, I hear, a renowned
huntsman in this valley ; therefore you
have something of the spirit of a kniyht in
you. "
" Yes !" said the vine laborer ; " old love
rusts not, neither does the love of arms ;
so often as I look upon that spear, I wish
it were there for some use .... formerly ....
but, aged sir, we will not think of the past.
Wife ! bring to the revered "
At this minute the haus frau entered,
placed a jug and goblets on the table, and
said —
"May it refresh and do thee good !"
"That it does already," said fhe pil
grim, " presented by so fair a hand, and
with such a friendly countenance !"
The haus-frau poured out, and the men
drank, striking tueir glasses with a good
clank ; the little girl slipped down from
aer father's knee, and ran with the mother
into the kitcaen ; the boy looked wistfully
into his father's eyes smilingly, and .then
towards the pitcher — the father understood
hiui, and gave him some wine ; he became
more and more lively, aad again smiled at
the pitcher.
" Tnis boy will never be a peaceful vine
laborer, as I am," said the "father ; "he
has something of the nature of his grand
father in him — hot and hasty, but in other
respects a good hearted boy — brave anil
honorable. Alas ! the remembrance of

" What dost thou say there? "said the
pilgrim, stopping him abruptly ; "explain
that more fully to me."
" Perhaps I have already said too much,
reverend father ; but ascribe it to the wine,
which makes one talkative. I will no more
atllict thte with my unfortunate history."
" Sfkax ! " said the pilgrim, vehemently
acd beseechingly; "si-eak! who art
" What connection hast thon with the
world, pious pilgrim, that you can still
trouble yourself about one who has suffered
much,aDd who has now arrived at the port
of peace ? "
"Si'K.vK !" said the pilgrim; "I must
know thy history."
" Well," replied he, "let it be. I was
not boru a vine-laborer — a noble stem has
engendered me, but love for a maiden
drove me from my home."
" Love? " cried the pilgrim, moved.
" Yes. I loved a maiden, quite a child
of nature, not of greatness. My father was
displeased — in a sudden burst of passion he
drove me from him — wicked relations who,
he being childless, would inherit, inflamed
his wrath against me, and he, whom I yet
honor, and who also surely still cherishes
me in his heart — he — "
The pilgrim suddenly rose, and went to
the door.
" What is the matter with Ihee ?" said
the astonished vine-labcrer ; " has this af
fected thee too much ? "
Ihe boy spraeg after the ased man, and
held him by the hand. "Thou wilt not
depart, pi'grim ? " said he.
At this moment the haus-frau entered
with a light. At one glance into the coun
tenance of the vine-laborer the aged count
exclaimed, "My Son !' and fell motionless
into his armx. As his senses returned, the
father and son recognized each other. Ade
laide, the noble faithful wife, weeping,
held the hands of the aged man, while the
children knelt before him.
" Pardon, father !" said the son.
"Grant it to me ! " replied the pilgrim,
"and grant to your father a spot in your
ijuiet harbor of peace, where he may
end his days. Son ! thou art of a
noble nature, and thy lovely wife
iB worthy of thee— thy children will
resemble thee — no ignoble blood runs in
their veins. Henceforth bear my arms,
but, as an honorable remembrance for pos
terity, add to them a pilgrim and the pick
ax, that henceforth no man of high birth
may conceive that labc r degrades man, or
despise the peasant who in fact nourishes
and protects the nobleman."
Ashy JoHNtioN's Faith.— Colonel Gran
ville Moody, the well-known Ohio Meth
odist minister, who was generally known
throughout the country when serving as
Chaplain in the Union army during the
war as the "Fighting Parson," spent yes
terday among hisffriends in St. Louis. He
has retired from the ministry, being over
70 years of age, but he still maintains that
a prayer he delivered when closeted with
Andy Johnson resulted in bringing about
the defeat of the Southern army and in
eventually terminating the war. He says
that Johnson sent for him and asked him
what to do. He replied, promptly, "Let
us pray ;" and pray he did until he worked
the spiritual faculty of the statesman up
to a white heat. After the prayer, so the
parson's story runs, Johnson sprang to his
feet and said, " Moody, by , I think
that prayer will pull us through." And
the prayer, according to the parson's be
lief, did pnll the Union army through, as
it so happened that, from that time oa, the
Federal troops fought their battles with
greater succesp. At another time the
righting parson, while urging his comrades
to make a charge, shouted, " Give them —
thunder, boys." He has been a very suc
cessful minister in his time, but since the
war bas labored under the belief that the
Almighty, himself and Andy Johnson
Bhould be given the credit cf bringing the
war to a close [St. Louis Republican.
A Test of Enwrance. — A novel ex
periment to test tne endurance of the offi
cers of the Cavalry Brigade of the Imperial
Uuard stationed at Warsaw was performed
a fortnight ago. Ten officers, chosen' by
lot, and their commander, General Strou
keff, rode 133 miles on a course laid out
around the Mokatotf Plain, adjoining War
saw, between the hours of 6:30 A. m. and
5:30 P. M. They changed their horses as
often as they wished, in most cases rive or
six times, and rested only twenty minutes
during the day. They were weighed before
starting, and at the end of the trial all were
fonnd to have lost except General Strou
koff, the average loss being about four
pounds. Neither the men nor their horses
appeared to be much fatigued.

A writer in Knowledge gives these direc
tioDg : The swimmer is supposed to be
simply balancing himself in ihe water when
he prepares to try the movements now to
be described. Placing the hands together
close to the breut, with the wrists tonch
ing the collar bones, or nearly so, the palms
downward and in horizontal plane with the
closed lingers, the swimmer launches his
arms forward to their full reach in front of
him, ftill keeping his hands together.
While be isdiiug this be kicks his legs oat
backward to thtir full extent, and so as to
throw the feet as far apart as possible. Of
these movements only the latter is propul
sive. The former merely brings the arn.s
to the ruht position for their backward
propulsive atroke.
But though the lejjs and feet being kicked
out backward produce a pr >pr.Nive effect,
especially if the feet are well planted, as it
were, against the water during their back
ward sweep, yet it is not in thU motion
that the legs do the moat effective part of
their propelling work. The arms are now
to be earned backward with a powerful
sweep, the hinds being held in a slightly
cup-shaped form and the strok-; bving taken
with just so much downward movement,
and no more, as is necessary to counteract
the tendency of the bead to sink when the
support of the hands is removed. While
the hands are thus brought toward the
hipe, the legs are to be brought forcibly
together, like the legs of a pair of Bhears
when we close it. Ie is in this
movement that the letrs produce their
greatest propulsive eflVct, an effect

and a half and am about well — pain
in side and back all gone — soreness
all out of my breast, and I have a
good appetite, and am gaining in
strength and flesh. It can justly be
