(ii o. W, Haines. - Editor and Proprietor. $1.50 In Advuuee; ?2 if not Paid in Advance. CEAZY KING LUDWIG. PATTI ONCE THREW HIM INTO A FRENZY OF MADNESS. He Krisrlitened and Enrafsed the Great Di\a by Hi* Strnnce Whims, and Wlien Slie Finally San* For Him It Drove Him Wild. When Putti was in the first heyday j,f her fame, Ludwig II, the mad king of Bavaria, set his heart cn having her sing for him at his private auditorium in Munich. He wrote letter after letter, begging, imploring, offering extrava gant sums of money, bnt Patti resolnte lv refused to go. She had heard too many stories of Ludwig's freaks, his cnrses and his unreasonable commands, and she was desperately afraid of him. But at last the king offered her a sum so enormous that it seemed ridiculous to refuse it. Then the singer plucked up courage and started for Munich. When she and her maid alighted at the sta tion, not even a carriage was there to meet them, and they had to inquire the name of the best hotel and call a cab like nny ordinary travelers. That was the first shock to the diva's nerves and temper. After luncheon she started out to see the town and incidentally to examine the posters announcing the great honor conferred upon the citizens of Munich by a visit from Europe's greatest singer. Not a mention of her name could she find in tho town. She rushed back to the hotel and told her maid to pack the trunks. Just at that moment a resplendent officer was announced. He saluted her and delivered a letter from the king. The letter stated curtly that his majesty would await her at 7 o'clock precisely in the Roval palace.-where his singer in ordinary. Mme. Fischer, would give her further directions. Mine. Fischer would also sing with Mine. Patti the duets which his majesty wished to hear. A programme was inclosed. Patti burst into tears of rage "I have never been treated so bru tally," she said. "1 shall leave at once. Tell" the king so. 1 will nut sing?never, never, never 1** The officer pleaded with the irate prima donna. She must not disappoint the king. His majesty had been wild with excitement ever since he knew she would come and had not slept for three uiglits. so great was his joy at the prospect of hearing her. "Besides," added the officer. yon know our king is?is?is?" "Crazy." snapped Patti. "Yes, that s very comforting, isn't it? I don't know wliy I ever came.'' Just then sbe caught sight of a postscript she had not read: "The king commands Mme. Patti to appear ill pure white, without any color whatever, and not by any means to wear a satin gown, but soft wool. Silk is painful to his majesty." "His majesty will have to be pained. 1 have no whitu woolen gown except my peignoir. Go tell the king I shall wear red velvet." "Red!" groaned the officer. "Oh, no, no I Red sends his majesty into fits. If you appear in red. he will screaiu and have convulsions. Oh, do be patient, madamel I will bring Mme. Fischer to yon. She understands the king's nerves. She will explain." Ho fled from the room, and, shortly after, Mme. Fischer appeared upon the scene. She soothed Patti into good hnnior and also attacked the white wool peignoir and transformed it into a most becoming Greek robe. Before 7 the royal carriage arrived at the hotel and Patti went to the palace. She was led through dimly lighted rooms and corridors into Ludwig's pri vate theater, which was in utter dark ness save for the moonlight that entered through tho windows. Patti stood upon the dark stage, while an orchestra, somewhere out of sight, began a soft prelude. Through the gloom she could just make out a white face in the royal box opposite the stage. Not another au ditor was in the great hall. The whole thing was most uncanny, and Patti felt cold shivers creeping over her. She shook with nervousness and fear, and when she should have begnn her aria not a sound could she make. She open ed her mouth, but her throat was para lyzed from nervous terror. There was a pause. The king sprang np and leaned forward out of the box, his white face gleaming in the moonlight. The violins repeated the prelude. Patti gathered herself together and made one heroic effort. Her voice rang out into tho great empty place, and tho king sank back into the dark box Patti, though badly scared, made the effort of her life and finished the aria from "La Traviata" trininphantly and stood finshed with victory. Dead si lence. Not a sound caine from the gloom before her. She went off the stage in a temper. His majesty might have given some sign of approbation. Mme. Fischer was behind the scenes, and Patti wait ed with her for the signal to sing the next number. A messenger appeared at the door. His majesty had bad enough music and had gone t0 bis apartments. For a moment Patti stood stunned. Then-she laughed. The rudeness was so colossal that it was funny. Mme. Fischer took the diva to supper and then bome. The next morning Mme. Fischer called at the hotel once more, accompanied by the court chamberlain, who bore the promised check, an autograph letter of thanks, from the king and some jewels of great value. Mme. Fischer's explana tion of the concert fiasco pleased Patti more than the jewels. King Ludwig, she said, was in one of his maddest moods, wild with regret, cursing him self and cursing Patti He had walked the floor all night, groaning that he was a traitor, for PattCa voice bad so ravished his senses that for one mo ment he had gone over to Italian ?"slc and had been false to Wagner?to Wag ner. the one musician who alone had satisfied bis majesty's soul. "That was better than having bored him." added Patti, ehrugging her shoulders.?New York San. A FAMOUS PLATE. Tlic First EnsravlnK W'ai Printed on a Laundretm* Bundle. Two groups of tourists were standing in til-; Pitti palace before the large plate of pure silver upon which Finiguerra, the great master of early engraving, had depicted bis lovely "Madonna and Child" in a trellised arbor covered with rosea An Italian lady was telling her friends in an undertone the charming anecdote of Finiguerra and the laun dress. The artist, it seems, in mastering the new and difficult art of engraving upon metal, bad acquired a singularly keen eye and delicate touch, and he also pos sessed a number of very fine and sharp instruments, wbicb he used in his work. Being a kindly man he sometimes placed both his sure band and his fine tools at the service of bis friends and neighbors in performing for them some of the simpler operations of surgery, until be acquired quite a reputation for his skill in doctoring their hurts. Ono day a poor lanndress who had been washing clothes, in wringing out a garment in which a needle bad been carelessly left, ran it deeply into lier band. Worse yet, it broke off in tbo wound and a part remained imbeddod in tbo flesh. She was in much pain, and on her way back from the stream where she bad been washing she stop ped at the bouso of the artist and was admitted. Entering his studio she hastily set down her wet and heavy bundle and held out the injured band, begging bis assistance. Finiguerra left bis work to help her, and after long and delicate manipulation extracted the broken nee dle. Tbe woman thanked bim and turned to go, lifting her bundle from its resting place. Then he saw that sho had set it upon | one of his engravings. Like all others at that time, it was a plate of engraved metal, complete in itself, and regarded as a single and sufficient picture, exact ly as if it had been a painting. But as tbe damp bundle was raised the quick eye of Finiguerra saw that it bad received an impression from the engraved picture beneath, and his quick mind seized at once the suggestion of tbe possibility of indefinite reproduc tion from a single original. So that from tbe kindness of a great artist to a poor washerwoman sprang the discov ery which has placed the beautiful prodncts of tbe engraver's art within tbe reach of all of us today 1?Youth's Companion.

Bears the sf Tha Kind You Have Always Bought Signature Mr. Fayette W. Rawlins, a native of this town, aged Go years, died recently at the Louisville (Ky.) Hospital, and was buried by the Confederate Camp in its beautiful lot in Cave Hill cemetery. Mr. , Rawlins was the eldest of three s ms of j the late F. W. Rawlins, of this town. I The three brothers, Fayette, Dolphin and J. E., were members of the Second Vir ginia Infantry, "Stonewall" brigade. The subject of this sketch was a member of Company G (Bott's Grays) and partici pated in ten battles. In the battle at Fredericksburg in December, 1862, he was very severely wounded and disabled for further service. Dolphin, of Com pany A (Captain Rowan's command) was killed in battle at Chancellorsville. Jos eph E. belonged to the same company and served throughout the war most gallantly, engaging in many battles, and now lives in Texas, the publisher of the Gilmer Mir ror. A few of his old comrades survive and sympathize with him in the death of his brother. That prosperity may abide with the surviving brother is the wish of his old mess mate, the writer of this paragraph.?Free Press. The pursuit of pleasure is often as dangerous to life as the pur suit of "the bubble reputation even at the cannon's mouth."
