Few rriDccs of dibiinction ia the history of tbt; world t vcr di.-jilajtd mure e cot-till if traits tbaa Leopold ol IH-rhau, cue of the greatest geiier- uls of bis time, aud famous aa the victor of Keseledorf, a btrangetic triuutpb, vxbicb Eredtrick tbe Ureal declared C.oar or ilauuibal need not be a&bauied of. IJui greatly at variance with bis brilliant war record was the private bibtorj oflb'd remarkable Duke of IV'shau. His it bole career as a ruler, aud ia all relations of life other than military, waa a strauire mixture of outbursts of uncontrollable passion, absolutist tendencies worthy of an old-fasbioued Turkish Pasha, meas ures of sterling common sense, and manifestations of the utmost kind beurtednesg. In consequence, Li? subjects hated and lisved him 'that golden hearted tyrant.' Leopold' character was due, in a great measure, to the extraordinary circunituauces under which be grew up. His parents, excellent but narrow-minded people, bad lost their eight children in rapid succession. TLey had already abandoned all hopes of having further offspring when little Leopold's birth filled tbem with iudeseribable joy. The father was especially jqbilant. Lest be bhould lotc this precious child, too, he gave stringent orders to all his attendants never to arouBe the boy's anger, never to trouble biin with any book learning, never to thwart any of his caprice?, however foolioh tbey might be. In consequeuce, young Leopold grew up in the most blooming health, but a more self-willed, impctuns, and violeut lad could not be imagined. His doling father died when tbe son was but fourteen years old, and left Leopold's education in the hands of the affectionate but weak mother. In his eighteenth year, at a rural ball, Leopold made the acquaintance of AnBa Liza, youngest daughter of Mr." Foetbe, a poor drnggist of Iresau. The girl, who was a very charming specimen of sweet sixteen, kindled the Prince's id flam able heart. He danced with her all the afternoon, and, before tbey parted, he was head over ears in love with her. When the ball was at an end, he said to ber: 'A una Liza, I love you.' Tbe girl blushed to tbe roots of her hair, aud made no reply. 'Anna Liza,' continued young Leopold, 'I will make you my wife. You shall become Duchess of Iessau!' fcibe lifted ber beautiful eyes to him and replied: 'Priuce, you are making fun of mel He swore a terrible oath for be bad learned all that already that no power cn earth should prevent him from keeping his word. 'But what will your mother say to it?' asked the girl timidly. 'I will go on the spot to her, and ask tier consent.' replied tbe young lover, in a tone of the most inflexible oetermination. 'lJut you, Anna Liza, will you become my wife?' he added, beuaing on her a burning glance. Anna Liza was an ambitious girl: she liked Leopold, and so she whis pered with another still deeper blush; 'les, Priuce!' There Was the customary kiss giv en hj the prince with the utnio-t warmth, whereupon he burned away in order to obtain his mothers con sent. Now at that time unions between tbe princes of sovereign houses and the daughter of poor burghers were absolutely unheard of. bo, when Leopold bluntly told bis mother that te bad asked the poor druggist's daughter to become his wife, tbe good od I'utbess was almost petrified with astonishment and dismav. Clasping her hands over her bead, she exclaimed; 'Leopold, my son, you must be mad!' 'Never was in better possession of my mental faculties than at this mo ment,' he replied, with tbe ntmost no- concern. 'Jlut tbe thing is utterly impossible. my son w nat! the future ruler or the ancient house of Anbolt, tbe peer of tbe proudest l rinces in tbe woilu, should demean himself so low as to bestow his hand upon a commoper's daughter.' '1 love Anna Liza, aud she shall become my wife,' replied tbe sob stuboruly. Vainly did the mother represent to mot that be via vnnntw t,.mtrff vainly did she implore him not to I disgrace his amily, as she called it, EHTABLTS HE D, 18 9 SOMERSET, PA , WEDNESDAY, MAY 17, 187G. by making a pill Tender's daughter tbe partner of bis bo9nm. 'I shall marry ber!' he cried at last, furiously cttampinr bis foot, 'and no power on earth shall keen me from it!' : ; " ' ' The mothe.r who knew his temper, immediateir ceased arguing with him. ' ' - No sooner had be sterme'J from the room than she sent for General Hit mar, the commander-in-chief of tbe little army of Anhalt, and tbe young Prince's military superior. The Duchess told him all about her son's project. '1 will put a stop to it,' said tbe old General.- ' ' He sent for the prince. 'Prince,' be said to him, how soon can you be ready to leave Dussau?, 'In two boors,' replied the Prince. 'In one hour,' thundered the Gen eral. 'I send youaS ourcjmrnissi'jncr tothe army, Gghtfntr nnder Prince hugene against the troops nnder the King of France. Captain Cellmann and Von Fliess shall be your aids. Two orderlies shall accompany vou. March!' : " " . Leapold was an enthusiastic sol dier; and be knew that tbe orders of his superiors must be obeyed at all hazards. ' l-- . So he hurried to Anno Liza and bade her an affectionate farewell; af ter making her promise that she would remain true to him, no matter how long he should stay aTay from De.'sau. .' - 'In three years,' ho said, 'I shall be of age; the: I shall ascend the throne, and my Erst act as ruler thai be to make you my wife.' tor eleven months be remained with Prince Eugene, fighting brave ly against the French, and obtaining among bis comrades the honorable surname, the lion of Anhalt. Then he was sent to Italy, a,nd kept there until he was of age. j Uunng all this time he bad con stantly corresponded with his girl. His letters have all been preserved: they are those of a very illiterate men, but in other repects they are quite as remarkable as the famous love correspondence between Abelard and Heloise. i le returned with tbe utmost quickness fo Dessau and rode straight way to the bouse of Air.

'VYfe m Anna fcuaj" ' -- -- - Tbe poor druggist had turned very pale, tor, believing that tbe Duke would never marry bis daughter, be had encouraged M r. Pter A biers, a young licentiate of theology, to court Anna Liza. The latter had turned a deaf ear to the solicitations of her clerical suitor. By a truly fearful coincidence, Ahlers was at that very moment with the girl, making a last effort to win her. 'Where is Anna Liza?' thundered Leopold, as the father of his sweet heart was vainly endeavoring to hide bis confusion. I will call ber,' he stammered out at last. Where is she?' demanded the young Duke, with a terrible scowl. 'In the front room p stairs, butw' Without waiting tor another word, Leopold hurried up stairs and burs into tbe front room. What a spectacle burst upon hiru there! Kneeling before Anna Liza, who kept her face averted, was tbe young licentiate, who just breathed the words, in tbe tnrgid styre of that period: 'Angelic creature, Cupid has sent me to thee en the wings of love. Plunge roe not into the abyss of de spair by refusing mr hinienyal of fer.' With an unearthly jell of rage, Leopold tore his sword from the sbeaih, and before tbe eyes of the frightened Anna Liza, he slaughtered the hapless licentiate. The girl fainted away. Leopold stood, still trembling with passion, over the quivering body of his victim. Tbea be went down stairs, and told Foe&be what be bad done. So unlimited were at that time even the powers of petty German sovereigns that this dreadful crime had absolutely no unpleasant conse quence for the murderer on the throne. On the contrary, tbe poor licentiate was ignoininoosly buried in the pot ters' held, and a few days later, Leopold of Anhalt married Anna Liza amid great popular festivities and rejoicings. But now arose another question for the Duke. Anna Liza, it is true, was his lawful wife, but having no princely blood in ber reins, she could not sit on tbe throne by his side, nor claim tbe title of Duchess. This title rould be conferred upon ber only by the German Emperor. Leopold of Austria, who was then tbe ruler of tbe Holy Roman Empire of German Natinolity, as bis curious title was, however, was decidedly averse to conferring such distinctions and priviledges npon low-born people for jvhom be entertained the utmost contempt. He was, beside, a some what effeminate person, and be bad beard, with horror and disgust of tbe escapades and violent deeds of the young ruler of Anhalt. So, when Leopold applied to him for the elevation of bis wife, Anna Liza, to the ducal dignity, tbe Em peror sent back a very curt nd al most impolite refusal. Nothing could exceed Leopold's anger upon receiv ing the reply. For days he raved like a madman: with bis own bands he tore down the painted emblems of the Emperor s power, and be bad penned already a grotesque letter to bis imperial name-sake, when his wife, Anna Liza, suggested to him to go personally to Vienna, and see if be could not persuade bis Imperial Majesty to grant bis wish. Leopold said be would go. But you must piomise me one thing,' love,' she added, xoa must 7. keep your temper in check. If the Emperor proves inexorable, why, then leave him without getting an gry.' tier husband promised that, . too; but the idea that he should keep bis temper under any' sort of provocation was a ludicrous one. Anna Liza learned to know him and his charac ter mocb better by and by! Tbe Duke went to Vienna, and ap plied to the Emperor for an Inter view. At first Leopold the First wa disposed not to admit Leopold of Anhalt at all to his presence. Had be adhered to it he would have saved himself a terrible humiliatiro. But he changed bis mind, and said to the tbe chamberlain in waiting. Admit his Highness!' Leopold was ushered in. At first he was bumble enough toward tha Emperor of the Holy Ro man Lmpire of German Nationality. Dut, when tbe latter said to Dim, 'My dear Duke, how -could you have been guilty of such a misstep as to marry the daughter of a low shop keeper?' the Duke's ire was aroused. 'xour MaiectT,' he replied, 'would not alow any one to talk disrespect fully about the Empress. In the same manner I herewith forbid yoa to use such expressions about my wife!' - - The Emperor raised his eyebrows. lie was amazed beyond expression, for no one had ever ventured to ad dress him in that strain. But a glance at tbe Duke, who stood before him with a terrible scowl, convinced him that he bad a dangerous adver sary to deal with. 'This audience is at an end!' said the Emperor, motioning toward the door. 'It is not, your Majesty' cried the Dokc, no longer ab'.c to control his wrath; 'I shall not leave this room until you have written me n letter making my wife a Duchess!' bo saying he took from his belt two pistols, and, throwing one of tbem to the emperor, he added: i 'I have as good blood in me as Austrian ever bad. You have in-! suited my wife, and you shall an swer for it now and here, pistol hand, or irive me satisfaction in bv writing the letter I demand!' The Emperor was speechless with terror; for the flashing eyes of the Duke showed bim plainly that be was in dead earnest. He cast a timid dance toward tbe door. Tbe Duke hastened to it and locked it. 'Will you write the letter? 1 ask your Majesty for the last time!' roar ed tbe Duke. The Emporor humbled himself by complying with the Duke s demand Tbe letter was written, and Leopold pocketed it with a profound bow Then he unlocked tbe door and hur riedly left the Imperial Palace. The Emperor was overcome with " khanie and rage. But what was ho to do? Tbe best policy for bim to adopt was that of silence. So Leopold of Anhalt was permitted to leave Vienna without let or hindrance. Upon bis return to Dessau, Anna Liza was solemnly proclaimed a Princess of the German Empire. bue lived happily with her eccentric husband, to whom she bore a large family of children. Tbe peculiar maonrr in which he bad obtained the Emperor's consent to hei elevation to the ducal dignity, did not become known until after Leopold's death. The Emperor bad died alread in PsOo. and there is some reason to believe that the shock he had received at that memorable interview, was the first nail to his coffin. Not the Kind t Men Tout Art Cor rupt. The charges against Blaine, Morton and Bristow are the unpleasantest features of the canvass. We have studied these charges carefully, and we are surprised that any oi tbem should have a moment's considera tion. Mr. Bristow seems to have done his duty in every case where his honor is now impugned. Mr. Morton, so far from deserving cen sure for bis action as Governor of Indiana, where be held the State true to the Union in spite of a cop perhead majority which bad deter mined upon stopping all war sup plies, deserves lasting renown. Ibis acticn will be remembered to bis honor as one of the brave deeds of the war long after the burning ques tions of this hour are forgotton. lo investigate that would do the Demo crats about as much good as if tbey were to investigate the battle of Get tysburg and the capture of Richmond. So far as tbe charges against Mr. Blaine are concerned we do not see the shadow of evidence upon which to convict him of any dereliction of duty. One man says to another that be heard a third man say that certain bonds were given to .Mr. Blaine to buy bis influence as Speak er and member ot Congress. If evi dence like this is to be entertained when the bonor of our statesmen is involved, there is not a reputation in tbe country tbat is safe. Mr. Morton, Mr. Bristow, and Mr. Blaine, are gentleman who belong to the history of the time; men in whose genius and achievements we should all take pride. We may have our own opinions as to their fitness for high places; we may think that Mor ton is too desperate in bis views on many questions to be trusted in the White Houae: we may think that Bristow is too young, and too incon siderate for the duties of this supreme office; we may feel tbat Blaine is too much ot a trimmer and politician; but this does not justify us in assum ing, as a consequence, tbat tbey re all corrupt, bad, wicked men, who use their offices for personal ;ain; wbo are vulgar jobbers; who have forfeited the confidence of tbe people, and wbo should be in jail. Let us take some things for granted ia deal ing with our public officers, and among them this, that when men at tain the eminence of Morton, Bristol, and Blaine they- are not, as a general thing, corrupt. Until corruption is proven incontestably let ns at least give tbem the benefit of their services and their fame. N. Y. Herald. A vineear-hearted old bachelor savs be always looked nnder tbe head of "marriages" for tbe news the week. of IttMiifal Hir. To get and retain beautiful hair you must attend to daily brushing it, occasionally washing it, and peri odically trimmintr it. and striving at ai1 times to keep tbe eeneral health up to the average. Now as to brushing. The skin o the head, like tbat of every other part of the body, is constantly being renewed internally. But it is not so easy too brush the hair properly, as one miirbt imagine. Few hair-dres sers, indeed, know very much about it. The proper tuna for the operation, then, is tbe morning, just alter you have come out of your bath, provi ded you have not wet tbe hair. T o kinds of brushes ought to be found on every lady's toilet table, a bard and a soft. Tbe former is first to be used, and used well, but not to rough ly; it removes all dust, and acts like a tonic on the roots of the hair, stim ulating tbe whole capillary system to healthy action. Afterward use the soft brush this to give tbj gloss from which tbe morning sunshine will pleasantly glint and gleam with glory that no Macassar oil in tbe world could imitate. Whence comes this gloss? yon inquire. Why, from the sebaceous glauds at the roots of tbe bair, nature's own patient po made, which the soft brush does not spread. Secondly, one word on wash ing the Lair This is necessary oc casionally to thoroughly cleanse both head and hair. Oue or two precautions must be taken, however. Never use soap if you can avoid it; if you d", let it be the very mildest and unperfumcd; avoid so called hair- cleansing fluids, and use rain water filtered. Tho yolka of two new-laid eggs arc much to be preferred to soap; they make a beautiful lather, aud when tho washing is finished, and the hair thoroughly rinsed in the purest rain water, you will find when dry that the gloss will not be destroy ed, which an alkali never fails to do. The first water must not be very hot, only just warm, and tbe last perfect ly cold. Dry with soft towel but do not rub till the skin is tender aud afterward brush. Bo very care 1:1 always to have your brushes and combs perfectly clean and free from grease, and place other brushes on the table for friends of yours wbo happen to be Maoassarites. Pointing tbe hair regularly not on ly prevents it from spitting at the enils,but renders each individual hair more healthy, lesa attenuated if I may apply tbe term to a hair and, moreover, keeps up the growing pro cess, which otherwise might be blunted or checked. Singeing the tips of the hair has also a beneficial effect. It will be seen that I am no advo cate for oils and pomades. My ad vice, in all cases, is to da without them if you possibly can, for by clog ging nature and over-stimuiatiog properties they often cause the hair to grow thin and fall offs toner than it otherwise would. Let well alone. One word, in conclusion, about dyes. Avoid them, if you be your own friend. Hair-dyeing is very satisfactory, as far as dead hair is concerned, but on the living heud its perfect success is a chemical impossi bility. Uirpe'r'a Bazar. Three Dttys la Sewer.

He had seen tbe policeman's lantern after go ing 300 yards, when, to escape cap ture, he crawled up a branch sewer, where there is only just room to crawl, until he got to a manhole, through which he attempted to climb. The tide came in and nearly drowned him while attempting to climb np, and he utterly failed. On tbe third day he mustered courage to go back ward the only way he could to the point where he entered, risking tbe chance of being overpowered by the fetid air and drowning in the filthy water, a task tbat he finally accom plished. He is a large man, five feet eleven inches in height, and is hardly recognizable as the same man who was seen on Thursday, ilia bed is one mass ot cuts ana Druises, nis finger nails torn oft and fingers worn almost to the bone in bis frantic ef forts to escape through the man-bole.

A BooMtatle Affair There wa3 great excitement at ibe depot oo Wednesday night, April 12, a short time before tbe arrival of tbe 12:30 train going south, caused by an attempt by a ruffian to recapture an escaped kidnapped young woman. The following are tbe particulars: Tbe young woman, aged about IS years, arrived here on Wednesday afternoon, on the train from Hazelton, being on her way to Readinir. She was informed that she would be obliged to wait until tbe midnight train, and she sought a place to re main until the train arrived. As she desired to be near the depot, she was directed to the St Charles Hotel. where she went. A few minutes be fore tbe arrival of tbe train she star ted to the depot, and when about half way across tbe street the would-be abductor suddenly came upon her, whereupon she screamed "murder, murder!" which soon brought all hands out of the depot. The ruffian, who bad evidently followed ber se cretly, seeing the danger ot himself being captured, made speedy tracks and wa9 soon among the missing. The young lady's story is that when quite a child she was stolen from her home by a band of gypsies and tbat she had made frequent attempts to es cape, but each time was recaptured, the last time being threatened with death did she make a similar attempt, but she did, and barely escaped re capture on Wednesday night, bbe was properly taken care of by the railroad employees, one of whom ac companied her as far as Harrisburg, and there seen that she was placed in safety on tbe train for ber home in Leading. We' are sorry that we caanot chronicle the capture of the villain, nnd hope that he may yet meet tho punishment he deserves.

It was late in tbe fall wben our good Mrs. Middlerrust went down to the market and selected a tub of but ter. She always bought good butter. In fact, she was determined tbat none of her boarders should ever have just cause of complaint against tbe quality of her provisions. "Madam," said the market mac, "I would advise you to secure two tubs of tbat butter. I shall have none better, and butter will be sore to rise in price through the winter." Mrs. Middlecrust bought two tubs, and on her way home she bethought herself bow she could contrive to make that miner last through to spring. Ab? a happy thought; she would toast tbe bread for supper, and butter it herself. Buttered toast was tbe thing. Accordingly the out upon her plan tea the loaves were good woman set of saving. For nicely and even ly sliced, gently browned before the fire, and very gently and carefully buttered. As ber boarders took their seats, she fancied tbat one or two of them were looking for the butter, so she smilingly said: "I have buttered the bread my self, gentlemen. As it was toasted, I thought it would be nicer so." Mr. Nipkins, a bald beaded bank clerk, wearing spectacles, took a slice of the toasted bread, and examined it long and critically. "Mr. Nipkins, is anything tbe mat ter with your bread?" asked tbe land lady. "No, no nothing Is the matter with the bread." And be turned it over and submitted it to further ex amination. "Mr. Nipkins." persisted the good woman, growing red in the face, if nothing is the matter, why do you behave in that manner? 1 like my boarders to be frank with me." "My dear Mrs. Middlecrust," re plied Mr. Nipkins, looking op se renely, 4,I will be frank. Wben 1 was a boy, if we wished to express a state of extreme mental ubtuseness, we were wont to say of tbe obtuse one, that 'he didn't know which side his bread was buttered on.' I think I must be losing some of my percep tive faculties. I find no fault with your provisions, dear madam; the fault most be in me. I have lived and eaten two and fifty years, and for tbe first time in my lite I find my self unable to decide on wbicb side my bread is buttered.

Little Martiu was a poor boy who bad no father nor mother. He earn ed his bread by going on errands. One day on his way home, he sat down to rest and to eat his piece of dry bread, near the door of an ion. As he sat there a fine carriage drove up, and the master of tbe inn came out to serve two gentlemen wbo were in it One of tbem was very yonog not much older than Martin and Martin thought to himself that be should like to be in bis place. Wben be looked at bis own crust of bread and his worn clothes, and then at their fine thing, be could not help saying aloud: "Oh, dear, L wish I bad tbat y0Dg gentleman's grand coach.

"So, little boy," said he, "rou would like te change places with me, would you?" "I beg pardon, sir," said Martin, I did dot mean any harm by what I said." ' I am not angry," said the y nng gentleman; "I only wish to know if you are willing to change places with -Oh, now yoa are joki.ig," aid Martin; "no one would wish to change places with me, an, walk so many miles each day, and have n -tiling to eat but a dry crust" Oa Uer Ear. Tbe other night an Austin man who was reading a story to his wife, came to a piece of "hue writing," m which the ear of the heroine was compared, to "some creamy wuite, nk-tmted shell of the ocean." "By the war dear," said the hus band, cutting short bis reading, "that description of tbe ear reminds me of vour ear; you have an ear like a 'shell." It was tbe first compliment she bad received from him since tbe early days of their marriage, and a blush of pride suffused her face as she asksd: "What kind of a Bhell, darling?" "An abalone shell," he replied. . She bad never before beard o! or seen an abalone shell, but she did not want to display her ignorance; so she made up her mind to hunt it op in the "Condensed Treatise of Con chology" that ornameuted the cenfre table. Next morning the first thing she did after her husband bad left the house, was to hunt up tbe description of an abalone. She found it. It was described as a shell about the size of an ordinary wagon wheel. She nurs ed her wrath during tbat day, and when ber husband came home tbat night 6be met bim at the door wih the towel roller and now his ear is as big as an abalone shell, but it looks like a piece of pounded beef. Thiss is rather a good story told of a dialogue between a navy man and a man wbo caught a fifteen pound pike. Seeing the fish on tbe bank, the navy man wanted to know : "What d'ye call that 'ere, mais- ter?" "Pike," answered the angler. "Will 'e boit maister ?" asked the navy "Put your finger in bis month and try, joked the angler.

No sooner was "pup's tail" in the pike's month than tbe jaws closed on it, and away went tbe dog across the country with the pike after him. "Halloo ! I say, yoa fellow," cried the angry angler, "call back your dog!" 'tNoa, I woan't," laughed the aavy ; 'yoa call back your fish I" "Well,' said the young man, "I will give you all I have, if yoa will give me all that yoa have, and that I have not" Martin did not know what to say: but tbe tutor told bim to speak freely. "Oh yes," said Martin then; "I will change places with yoa." But when tbe young gentleman stepped out, Martin saw that he was very lame. His legs were bent so that he had to walk with cratches. His face was pale and tbii too, like tbat of one wbo is often ill. Martin then began to think that health wzs better than a fine carriage. "Will you change places with me now?" asked the youth. "I will give yoa all that I have to be ttroog like yoa." But Martin said, "Oh no; not for tbe world." "I would gladly be poor," said the young man, "if I could run like you; bnt as it is God's will tbat I should be lame, I try to be happy and thank ful as I am."
