Lad this year in j erection. My dear friends,
the Von I, family, by their warm and urgent iiv
ti Cation, tempted mo away from Ikrlin for the
holiday week to their beautiful estate in Meck
lenburg. As 1 left Ikrlin, the city by robed in
white, snowy draperies, growing whiter and
whiter under the soft touch of the falling snow
Hakes. It was impossible not to know it was
rearing Christmas. TLo trains were Cllcd with
merry travellers, mufllcd up to the eyes in huge
furs, going home for the holidays. And at every
station the keen air was warmed into a sort of
summer mildness by laughter nnd welcoming
words and hearty greeting. How like some
gladdening burbt of sunshine through ri!:cd clouds
in the midat of the world's bu.inccs and caret
and troubles these bright days in the heart of
winter ! In tho Mccklcuburg landscape there is
but little variety; widj spreading plains stretch
ing off to the Ilaltie. And yet there is for oik
born in the tropic.", a never failing sjurce of
j IeaMire i-.i the juictc!-t of landscape, purified
by the whiteness of winter. And in the few
hours' ride from lieilin, I felt, as scarcely cer
before, the restful influence of gray skies, limit
Ies cspar.be of Fpotlcns snow, sombre but liclily
shadowy forests. At one of the stations coming
aorth our conij any were met by our ho.-t and
son. wlio were juet returning from hunting on
thoir estate in lV.aeraiiia, s that wo received a
pleasant addition to our patty. At Iiostock, a
.juaint old town, one of the llansa-league, our
railway journey ended. The early winter twi
Iig!it bad already gathered over the antique gablo
roors of tho houc?, so that wc saw but little of
the city. The family coacb, with its four stal
wart horse?, was ready for us, and soon wc were
dashing off through dark CTCrgrccn forests, over
roads sheeted with snow, and under the clear,
starry December sky for a fifteen mile ride.
What a warm, genial welcome in its comfort and
elegante tho Castle had in waiting for us, and
better than all, the kindly, smiling faces of our
friends greeting us as we left tho darkness and
cold ! I am sadly tempt:d to g:TC you a long
account of our Christmas week here, but my
time really permits me only to sketch it very
hastily. My host is proprietor of one of the Cnc
old Mecklenburg estates, which ho manages with
wisdom and skill. The castle, its surroundings,
its interior, etc., are charming. There is a cer
tain pnmitiveness, a conservativeness, a remind
er of sjiuc old regime about tl.c life and people
here, so that 1 am half tempted tj think I am
reading some old romance, or poem or chronicle,
or that during this holiday week 1 have been cn
J.iv in a lon and rlcasant dream, which will
fade away as soon as I am onco more in
mid-t of the realities and prose of Ucrlin.
The "modernizing" spirit which of late
made itselt s much felt in Germany, has, happi
ly, not to any very marked extent invaded the
order and peace of this region cf Mecklenburg.
In this district are a number of old families of
the nihility, owning large estates, and about
whom cluster little tilltgcs of tenants and work
ing people, whose fathers and forefathers lived
and worked very much as they work to-day. It
would be untrue to say that the condition of the
people had not been much improved in some re
spects, that a freer and broader spirit docs not
exist hrre, but on the whole, the old times still
linger, modified and mellowed by the new.
Wc have pasted directly into all the enjoyments
of winter country life. Each one is free to
amuse himself as he may like, with walking,
hunting, riding, sleighing, skating, etc.. etc.
The weather was perfect for CLristmas. The
enow which bad fallen a few days before was in
excellent condition for sleighing, and the sun
glowed and gleamed ia a gloriously blue north
ern sky, and reflected itself endlessly ia snow
crystals, ia arrowy-pcrulant icicles, ia frozen
brooks and ponds. The castle stands on slightly
rising ground, witfi a little lake on one side, now
frozen and still, beyond which a wide and beau
tiful park of beech and -oak, and pine and fir,
stretches away. Not far off is the little village
of Kolzow, which rests peacefully under tho
-war of the rkhloss and its master. From the
drawing-room windows is a charming view of the
little chuicb, surrounded by now leafless trees,
and l.cniaocd in by glorious drifts of snow. As
the shadows of Christmas eve gathered over the
country, little groups of the country people
might be seen wendiDg tbeir way on foot to the
church, or coming in large parties in sleighs
from the neighboring estates. The little church
runs back with Listory some two or three hun
dred years, and jet seemed not too old to enter
with a sort of quaint simplicity and earnestness

stone, came ghmjses of the twinkling, gleaming
tarrs. Quiet stars shone in the softly darken
ing skies. The snow clothed tho land far as the
eye could reach with a mantle ol stainless purity,
lilted itself in massive waves over fences tvtjj
walls, crested the roofs and lighted tl e gloom
gathering in the r. Itigh beiis tinkled in the
fro"ty air, and jleasant words passed between
those hastening home to delight the little ones"

village stood Christmas trees. The Forester "

And the fathers and mothers and children gath

In the castle wc had the same pleasant c'ustom,
though perhaps on a somewhat larger scale. The
ringing of a bell announced to us that our pres
ence was desired, and we entered the large,
brilliantly lighted ball, in triumphal procession,
while the music of a German choral came to us
from one of the neighboring rooms. It was one
of the prettiest sights imaginable. Two trees
with tapers, covered with all manner of bright
and glittering ornaments, which it is the delight
of German children's hearts to make and buy,
gave us welcome. Running all around the great
room were little table?, bright with gifts and
lighted with Christmas tapirs. Each one had
his or her table. What a bright, merry time we
had f o one was forgotten; and amid the pleas
ure of renewed surprises, of giving and receiving
of thanks, the evening passed pleasantly away,
though r.ot, however, without leaving an impress
upon one heart and memory, at least from which
it can never be effaced.
Some times in this region of country, and in
Sweden also 1 think, they have an odd and very
amusing way of distributing presents. The com

Christmas day was exceedingly j!casant. In
the morning we attended the services in the
church, and had a good Christmas sermon from
the young ti igyman. Later a grand Christmas
dinnei', uiid a pleasant evening n famille. The
Christmas festivities hero are prolonged to two
holidays, but they arc spent more fiuictly than
with us and are rogarded somewhat more as
On New Year's there is a more boUlcrous life
among the common people. Wc have had during
Christmas week a charming gathering of friends
of the family to celebrate the birth-day of the
eldest daughter of the house. The guests came
through the snow, some of t!,cr:i from a consid
erable distance. The great family coaches and
sleighs presented quite an imposing appearance,
drawn by four horses. The country life of the
gentry here is very pleasant. They have large,
comfortable homes, plenty reigns on every side,
and each estate is a sort of little kingdom. A
certain charming stately ol i-fasliior.ed formality
and politeness, colored and warmed by truest
and simplest friendliness, which one sees here, is
very delightful nnd interesting. Our time passes
swiftly by. During the day the gentlemen hunt
or ride or write, and the ladies busy themselves
w ith their woik, or conversation. At dinner wc
all meet, and the evening is filled up with music,
with games, conversation, etc. The ice has been
in most excellent condition for skating, but the
little thaw which we are now having is a disap
pointment for the skaters. With the festivities
of Sylvester evening and New Year's will close
our holidays in the country, and wc shall say
good-bye to our kind friends and be in a few
hours in Merlin.
In closing, I cannot but think amid how wide
ly different scenes I am writing these few words
from those in which jou in the tropics may read
them. 1 watched the sun rise this morning in
the gray cit. First came a soft warm glow in
the winter sky, a low lying band of amber light,
crowinr brighter and brighter, and vet seeming
almost shy of its own brightness, so strangely
reluctant dxs color seem to make itself felt in a
winter landscape. Now a blue sky, with slowly
gathering clouds forms itself above us as the day
goes on. Not far away to the north lies the
Ilaltic, cold and gray and wintry. Forest lands
stretch to cast and west, north and south. In
the woods and on the Kclds here and there lie
traces and tracks in the snow of the timid hare
and swift deer, lures to the hunter
has partly melted away, showing now and then
brown earth and faded turf, and on the huge
old-fasuioned barn roofs, vivid patches of emerald
moss. In the park, goihic aisles of myriad leaf
less twigs and curving branches, stand waiting
for the resurrection glory of the spring. Sounds
of all kinds of feathered and animal life come to
us from barn and stall. Solemn cawing crows
fly like a shadow over the snow, and countless
sparrows make summer in the trees. Peace,
plenty and prosperity seem to reign on every
side, from the castle, with its tower, to the sim
ple peasant-cottage, from which the smoke rises
into the quiet air. As I close, the sun sends a
golden shower of beams over the landscape, and
as it passes westward I send with it to you my
New Year's crcctins.

A drive back of the city gave us a fine view of

country tbat surrounds it, with the scattered
groups of trees, and the Connecticut river in the

Railroad traveling in sleeping cars is like voy
aging at sea : in both cases the passengers form a
temporary community, sharing the same ex
periences and sympathizing with each other in the
same hopes and fears. This social feature robs
even the monotonous overland journey of much of
its weariness. The occupants of a car become ia
a sense members of one family ; the acquaintance
grows day by day, and the last days of the jour
ney are often more really enjoyable than the first.
Such a trip affords good opportunities for study
ing people. Some of your companions are good
and some nre wicked, perhaps, but all are on
their good behaviour, and you cannot always tell
the sheep from the goats, and sometimes find the
greater satisfaction in the society of those whom
you suspect, according to the ordinary ways of
judging, of belonging to the latter class. Such a
community is also likely to be very cosmopolitan.
Representatives of all nations meet and fraternise.
Now and then your neighbor is some celebrity
whom all like to say they have seen.
On our trip east, Edison joined the train at
Cheyenne, nnd rode with it as far as Omaha. In
appearance he is as different as possible from the
ideal one naturally forms of the great inventor ;
awkward, boyish and carelessly, almost slovenly
dressed, he would pass at sight for a brakeman
rather than a genius. In conversation, ho

Coming west we had the company of a Germau
family, consisting of the parents, three daughters
rarging from thirteen to twenty years old, and one
son who now lived in California nnd had gone to
Germany to bring them over. None of them ex
cept the son could speak English, the youngest
indeed, a pretty brunette, had studied English at
school nnd spoke it a little but very timidly.
Two other grown up sons and a other of the old
lady were living in California and had been ab-
sent from Germany for many years. Tnis interest-
ing family had but one objection known to the
rest of us. They were accustomed to take their
daily lunch in the car and made a generous slice of
Limberger cheese a prominent part of the repast.
Now this kiud of cheese may be very nice to cat
I believe it is, but it is hardly a success as a fra
grance, especially in a closed car : the fact, there
fore, that on these occasions the other passengers
retired to the extreme ends ol the apartmen', and
even into the adjoining cars, needs no further ex
planation. As the days wore on, aud the distance
from tho beloved Fatherland increased, the old
lady had severe attacks of homesickness and low
spiriti, and it was feared that the trip might bo
too much for her. Hut on the last day of the jour
ney during the rattling down hill ride Irom tho
Sierras into California, several incidents occurred
which did her a great deal of good and placed her
out of danger. At Colfax, one of her long lost
sons suddenly appeared and was folded to the
mother's heart, and kissed and caressed with
emotion too great for words and only faintly ex
pressed by the tears which freely flowed from her
eves. The rest of the family warmly joined in
these demonstrations of affectionate welcome,
while tho interest and sympathy of the car
community wore so great that a good part of
them bad to cry too. At Sacramento the remain
ing son surprised them, which necessitated a repeti
tion of the tableau of the morning, and again at
Stockton, where the brother appeared on the
scene. These successive surprises were doubtless
arranged by the California members of tne family,
and were a great success, for on that day there
was no happier woman in the St-to then this brave
oi l lady.
A IMgian Consul in our car, on his way to his
office in Japan, was an interesting study when
other subjects failed. Ho spoke broken Eoglish,
but was ciearly of good family and well educated.
He was something of a dandy, and washed his
face in scouted water, and got himself up every
day in faultless style, regardless ot the inconveni- i
encesofcar life. His restlessness was extreme, i
and he was constantly in search of something '
I amusing, but nothing could satisfy him very long i
at a time. He had hardly continuity sufficient for j
! PlaJinS cards. While on tho plains, one day, !
t buffaloes became the topic ol conversation, wuen no
! asked, -how much you link it cost to get one
I live buffalo!" Some one replied '"Oh, I don t
j know, a good deal I guess." Upon which ho
j ventured the lucid suggestion. I tink it more
. better to pet zo puppies."
Two companies of missionaries were in the
, train : one, made up of two young couples.
! was bound to an Episcopalian mission in China.
! The others were Presbyterians, an elderly man
', returning to his field in Siatn, and taking with
; him three young girls ns teachers. The latter
had a compartment in the car to themselves and
used to have family prayers every day, the music
of their morning and evening hymns sounding
clearly through the car to the enjoyment of all.
These missionaries were all pleasant people to
meet and talk with, but tie two companies made
no advances toward each other, and seemed to
pay too much respect to tbo denominational
barricades tor the best success of railroad trav-
eling. One cf the Episcopalian missionaries,
who was a little iame. had decided, with his
wife, to visit Salt Lake City. When we arrived
at Ogden the Salt Lake train was ready to
start, and they immediately crossed over to it.
In a few minutes he came limping back in a
state of extreme anxiety, and enquired of the
conductor or porter if his overcoat had been
eeeu, as he had lost it ; they had not seen it

reservations ; he swore a good deal, and his

in an oblique direction. The prarie dogs sit on
their hind feet at the mouth of tbeir holes, a few
feet from the track, giving respectful attention
to the daily ceremony of a passing train ; only the

odd dissolving views which are occasioned by a

Omaha and Ogden, there were quantities of the
later wild flowers. The prevailing colors being
yellow, purple and white. Wild sunflowers were
the most noticeable for their numbers ; they
bloomed through nil the country about Ogden,
and along the road toward the Rocky
Mountains' summit, until the elevation became
too great, and then on tho other slope toward
Omaha, where in some places they reach a
height of twelve or filteen feet.
Around Rock Creek, just this side of the summit
of the Rocky Mountains, is a region infested
with organised gangs of robbers. Coming this
way we reached the station for supper after dark.
Many rough looking men were on the platform.
Soldiers under arms were scattered here and
there. A car is attached to the rear of our train
for a squad of soldiers to guard us through the
night. A boy who has been sitting on a white pony
near the platform, silently watching things, rides
swiftly off into the darkness as the engine bell
rings. a spy probably. It is all right ; we shall
not be troubled to-night, as these robbers prefer to
conduct a safe business. Nevertheless our car
doors nre kept carefully l eked, and the women
almost get up a respectable panic, and value their
jewels less than they did.
It is a long lane that has no turning, and the
longest vacation conies to an end at last, but its
benefits need not, for its pictures, influences and
memories become part of the permanent stock of
the experience that each life gathers, and by some
mystic hidden chemistry, silently transmutes into
character. Saxiono B. Dole.
lti'liurti-r's Interview with Col. Jolin Hay.
Reminiscences of Bayard Taylor.
He was connected with the New York Tribune
for tweuty-five years, lie was city editor fora
Ions time. Have heard him tell of that day of
small things. Ho did city work, wrote editorials
and everything else. lie was worked to death,
nearly, but retained his freshness by anvays
reading or writing something solid before going
to bed at night. He made all his trips of travel
in the interest of the Tribune. He was never en
gaged, being called traveler always, and went
with an object, and not as other travelers go.
His literary feats, some of them were very re
markable. He would write sometimes a whole
page of the Tribune in a single day, and it was
fine literary matter, too, and that which required
much study. His greatest achievement io this
line was that of writing nearly a page of the
Tribune in twenty-four hours on the volume of
Victor Hugo's poem3. The remarkable thing
about this was that the book arrived in New
Y'ork one morning, and the next the review ap
peared with several columns of metrical transla
tions of the poems, retaining their orignal vigor
He went to the icelandic Millcnic for the Tri
bune, and just before landing it was suggested
that a poem should be written for the occasion.
Seating himself, surrounded as he was by his
friends, he wrote the gem, " Iceland's Thousand
Years." In reponsc to a toast at the celebration,
be spoke in the native language, and astonished
all present. He bas been at work for years on
his life of Geothe, but has only gathered the ma
terial thus far, and not written a word. Ilia ap
pointment as minister was the crowning glory of

These are the prominent items in the scientific
record of the year, which suggest themselves to
us as we make a rapid survey of the chronology
of 1878. Not all these discoveries have yet been
perfected, but most of them stand complete in
the fact of their annunciation. Some of them
were first brought to public view in the last
months of 1877, but as the New York Ihrald
suggests, the realisation of their full value was
reserved to 187S. It has been a notable year.
Philosophers of history tell us tbat periods of war
are usually followed by p eriods of great mental
activity, and if we run our attention over the
years of the past decade we shall be astonished at
the triumphs of mind over matter. Surely " the
world does move," Galileo.
Bismark bas addressed a letter to the federal
council, explaining his views relative to the
guiding principles in tho provision of the cus
toms tariffs. The letter concludes : Our own
interests alone ought to determine our action.
These interests will perhaps shortly lead to
fresh negotiations respecting tariff treaties with
foreign countries. If these negotiations are to
have the prospect of a beneficial result, it will
first be necessary to create an autonomous cus
toms system, placing all our home products in the
most favorable possible position in relation to the
articles of foreign production."

One day about a week ngo Justice Lcmkie was
visited by a woman so old that she had lost her

' John Doe owes me 4o dollars lawful money,

Her mouth was empty of teeth, but her eyes had
lost that far-away, dreamy look, and her three

she said :
" Well; he didn't appear, did be?"
" And he won't, either. As 60on as that bit

Diplomatic correspondence accompanying the
President's mcssago contains a communication
from Mimistcr Seward to Secretary Evarts on the
Chinese question. Mr. Seward says we have al
ways been at a disadvantage in dealing with
China. We have voluntarily accorded to her
people within our borders the p,rivilages of those
of the most favored nations. China, however,
has. yielded only a few privileges to our people
and wc arc obliged to resort to diplomatic repre
sentation to secure to them the enjoyment of even
these. Mr. Seward shows how Americans nre
debarred in China from all enterprises outside
the ordinary intcrcharge of commodities and their
transportation between defined points, and says
perhaps the time has arrived when wc may say
to China, we expeet more perfect reciprocity. It
is very certain that China would not consent to
the extension of privileges enjoyed by foreigners,
and it is piosHibie rather than to do this, she
would agree to such a revision of our treaties aa
will leave us free to meet the necessities of our

Hear the milkmen with their belis,
What a flood of chalk and water their infernal
How they clang at early morn,
Of sleek cattle fed on corn,

How they rouse us from our dream?,

And the rattle of their wagons, and the clatter

While we long to rush upon them with a bundle
Till their j ells
Drown their bells ;
Drown the everlasting clamor of their bells.
A St. Louis journal advises young men to
choose a wife by the music she plays and the way
sho plays it. If she manifests a predilection for
Strauss", she is frivolous; for Beethoven, she is
sentimental ; for Offenbach, she is giddy ; for
Gounod, she is lackadaisical ; for Gottschalk,
superficial ; for Mozart, she is prudish ; for
Flotow, she is coinmonp.Iace ; for Wagner, she is
idiotic. The girl that hammers away at " The
Maiden's Prayer," " The Anvil Chorus," and
Silverv Waves." may be depended upon as a
good cook, and also as being healthful ; and, if
she includes 44 The Battle of Prague " and 44 The
White Cockade," in her repertory, you ought to
know that she has been thoughtfullyfreligiouely,
and strictly nurtured. But last of all, pin your
faith upon the calico dress of the girl who can
! play 44 Home, Sweet Home."

A Persevering Doo. A boast being made ot
the obedience of a Newfoundland dog in fetching
anl carrying, the master put a marked shilling
under a large square stone by the roadside, and
Laving ridden on three miles, ordered the dog to
go back and fetch it. The dog set off, but did
return tho whole day. He bad gone to the place,
and being unable to turn the stone, sat howling
by it. Two horsemen catuo by, and saw his dis
tress, and one of them, alighting, removed the
stone, and finding the shilling, put it in his rock
et, not supposing that tho dog could possibly be
looking for that. The dog followed the men up
wards of twenty miles, stayed in the room where
they supped, got the breetches in which the fatal
shilling bad been put, made his escape with
them, and dragged them through mud and mire,
hedge and ditch, to his master's house.
