White-, Tom- Wi'laoo and ?yself were attending a country school where the flies nearly ate- as up in the eummer. i Once or twice a day sonsfebody drove by : a?nd that wae about the oaly thing that ; ever occurred to break the monotony i o# oar lives. Terry Brennan attended | the school for awhile* but happening to let the schoolmaster's pet dog fall into the- walk he was sent home and told) to abay there, I remennber it waBIr because ashost time after we a41 got the itc& aud had- to cbose the school for a* eaopl<* of months- Wellv Tom and Jtohn and myself need* to< have to stand tup in front oflthe desk and- repeat poetry,, three* of those poem-a being "The Wreck of the Hesperus " "Somebody's Darling* and | "Bingen on the Rhine.** I have hated those poems ever since. John was very dx*ll and! bis mind dad not rem to- poetry asTom'b and mine diritt. D doubt if he could repeat two verses of "Somebody'8 Darling^ this minute. When he grew up?Tom visited} the reef of Norman's feoerbut when he came back be said it was a flroet. JBach< time 1 came to ?iirope?Tom> wanted me to visit Bingen but I was lined- of the name. Tbe last time I was leaving I concluded to see what John L thought of it, but found that though he knew ? like myself ? that Bingen was something, disagreeable,, he did not know it it were: a negtile oo a a insect. Well,, it ie all* oner. I bare seen JBSugeu, aud?Iike the snapshot 1 took of the old Indian,. it did. not hart me. It is a pretty little town with, hiils behind it. The hills are covered- with vineyards and castles. L tind a vineyard aijout as romantic as a cornfield. There is &j small,, bat well laid out? park on the j bank of the civer. There were flower j beds anal shaded* walks where the bonnes were wheeling the babies as | fehey wens t ha* evening. tDat the- young j soldier died in the sand in Northern ; Africa The "Garnian Song&"' D heard,. of I counse. L saw fehe Rhine "sweep along"", bat it wae not blue ? it was about the I color of Goldcreek when they are sluic- j iug in the Basin. I was rather puzzled j at first* but happening to Look, over the i cily historical records J&found that the authorese had/ never beeu in Germany j audi that she said for the Local color of ; the goem she was indebted to two Ju- j ueau gentleman,. Mr. George P. Miller and Gue Masaerachniidt,. Elsq, 1 could see that the boys had been stringing her ? from patriotic motives. Muddy Rhine would not sound well to<a Ger man,, nor would it Look weli in a poem. There is a national park near liingen with. a. national monument which I saw at a distance. On the opposite side of the river are mure hilis,. also covered ! wibh viuey.&ide and. castles.. Witahiu a. mile of Biugauie the mouse i tower formerly owned by Bishop Hatto I who had beeu grinding the people pretty hard.. A famine occurred' and hundreds were dying, in wank. They applied: to. the bishop for assistance,, but be bad several hundred shut up in a barn, sat fire to it to "destroy them, like a lot of mice." That night Bishop Hatto was attaoked by millions (?.; of mice. Ha ran everywhere*. but they cnawled over him, .chewed bis ears and 1 ?PER AGAIN t I ? ; t s L "THE LITTLE BOUGLiS" 4 I I . \ \ i ' i HUDSON & NELSON, Ptop^s DOUGLAS, ALASKA nose off, Dibbled boles in him every where. They kept this np until therer * was only a few bones left to show that there had been a bishop. Soon alter, the steamboat passes two castles of robber barons captured by Rudolph of Hapsburg. The castles be tween Bingen andCoblentzare as thick as tbe stamps were in Douglas when Frank Bach, Billy Newcomer and 1 landed there in '82. On one bill are two castles called The Brothers. In 1200, Heinricb and Lad wig were in love with the same young lady r and as they coold not both marry her, Heinricb resigned, went to the Holy Land* leaving Ludwig tbe field. After a time foe tired of the girl and joined a erusade. A couple of years later b?- returned wpth- a Greek bride. A few naontbs later Heinrich returned with> the intention of killing Ludwig for beiug anSaithfol to Hrkfcegarde, but she interposed and begged him lo forget it. He did; built a cay tie beside bis brother and they were friends ever after. Hi)de~ garde went ioto a convent; tbe Greek girl tired of Lodwift went off witb a better man and every bpdy was satisfied Boppard i? an old Roman town and has many interesting ^uins. One is an old castle built by tbe Knight Templara who were first at the siege of Acre. An otijiw is about which they tail the fol lowing: Conrad Bayer, who was gover- * nor of the city, had fallen in love witb a girl named Marian living on tbe other side of tbe niver. Her brother was in Palestine fighting under the emperor. Cbnrad tired of the lady and for months be had not seen ber^wben one day while hunting be was- met in tbe woods by a knight in white arraor who said that he was Marian's brother and challenged him to combat. At tbe first lunge Conrad ran him through tlx* body and killed On opening tbe helmet he found that it was Maria** herself he bad killad. He became a monk and built this convent. In one plae* in the middle c4 the river i9 a six-sided castle, apparently rising out of the water. It has only one door, that being several fefct above water level, so that it is necessary to use a ladder, There are many dungeons under ^Kter where the prisoners had no light and heard nothing but the 90und of th? water werh?e&. The em peror, Heury VI, wanted the daughter of one of the Counts Palestine to marry him, but she refused and married an other. Later she fled for refuge to this Pfalz, where her child wa9 born, and the emperor gave orders that for the Suture and forever the women of the Palatines should i? Pfalz to have their babies. It is a swift current and I pity the poor doctor who had to go? over there on a dark winter night and scramble up the .'ladder into the only door in the building. There is a church not far from here that was very ricbat one time. 'A sapskag knight went in one day and in bravado took the golden crown from the head of one of the sta tues,, put it on his own, leaped on bra horse and rode off. The horse seemed to be seized with, a Sreuzy, dashed off madly to the river, and in spite of ail efforts of the knight to restrain himr leaped into the Rhine and neither horse,, rider or crown were seen or heard of again.
